Latin Translation of Psalms Found in Irish Bog
15:13 Jul 30, '06 / 5 Av 5766
by Ezra HaLevi
Archaeologists in Ireland found an ancient Latin translation of the Psalms of King David last week. Which Psalm the book was open to when preserved in the Irish bog has been a subject of confusion.
The ancient book was discovered in a bog by a construction worker who spotted it while driving the shovel of his backhoe into an area nearby. The approximately 20-page book has been dated to the years 800-1000.
It was initially reported that Latin Vulgate version of the book was opened to Psalm 83, which in the Hebrew Tanach exhorts G-d to “not hold Yourself silent” as the nations plot against Israel – explicitly mentioning Edom, Ishmael and the residents of Philistia and Tyre.
It turns out, however, that the Vulgate uses a different numbering of the chapters than the Hebrew Bible and the chapter that was actually facing outwards was not Psalm 83.
It was then reported that the visible text on the bog book is from the seventh verse of Psalm 82, which reads: "But you will die like mere men; you will fall like every other ruler."
Finally, the the Director of Ireland's museum Patrick F. Wallace said in a statement Friday that it was actually Psalm 84 that was exposed. He said that the original announcement had “led to misconceptions about the revealed wording. It is hoped that this clarification will serve comfort to anyone worried by earlier reports of the content of the text.”
The words of Psalm 84 are as follows:
1. For the conductor, on the gittith, of the sons of Korah, a song.
2. How beloved are Your dwelling places, O L-rd of Hosts!
3. My soul yearns, yea, it pines for the courts of the Lord; my heart and my flesh pray fervently to the living G-d.
4. Even a bird found a house and a swallow her nest, where she placed her chicks upon Your altars, O Lord of Hosts, my King and my G-d.
5. Fortunate are those who stay in Your house; they will continually praise You forever.
6. Fortunate is the man who has strength in You, in whose heart are the highways.
7. Transgressors in the valley of Baka (weeping) make it into a fountain; also with blessings they enwrap [their] Teacher.
8. They go from host to host; he will appear to G-d in Zion.
9. O L-rd, G-d of Hosts, hearken to my prayer; bend Your ear, O G-d of Jacob, forever.
10. See our shield, O G-d, and look at the face of Your anointed.
11. For a day in Your courts is better than a thousand; I chose to sit on the threshold of the house of My G-d rather than dwell in tents of wickedness.
12. For a sun and a shield is the L-rd G-d; the L-rd will give grace and glory; He will not withhold good from those who go with sincerity.
13. O L-rd of Hosts, fortunate is the man who trusts in You.
The Psalm is recited by many Jews at the beginning of the afternoon prayers on a daily basis. The Valley of Weeping can be read as the Bekaa Valley, a Hizbullah stronghold in eastern Lebanon thought to also host a Syrian military intelligence presence.
It really does not matter which page of the Bible was being read at the time when this ancient script was lost. Every page in the Psalms is related to God's promises to the Jewish people not the Arabs. The Koran denies the Psalms, and even the existence of King David who wrote many of them. Today's Arabs teach that King David is a mythical character, and part of a Zionist plot to influence the world toward the Jews. The media agrees to a mythical King David, and rarely expose the Koran as a blasphemous Arabic plot to influence the world toward the Islamic peoples. The 83erd Psalm is one that should put fear in the heart of every Arab planning to put an end to the State of Israel. It's application to the very news coming out of the Holy Land today makes the point of the theme of this web page. The Old Testament lives in today's news!
83:1 A Song or Psalm of A'-saph
Keep not thou silence, O God: hold not thy peace, and be not still, O God.
2 For, lo, thine enemies make a tumult: and they that hate thee have lifted up the head.
3 They have taken crafty counsel against thy people, and consulted against thy hidden ones.
4 They have said, Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation; that the name of Israel may be no more in remembrance.
5 For they have consulted together with one consent: they are confederate against thee:
6 The tabernacles of Edom, and the Ishmaelites; of Moab, and the Hagarenes;
7 Gebal, and Ammon, and Amalek; the Philistines with the inhabitants of Tyre;
8 Assur also is joined with them: they have holpen the children of Lot. Selah.
9 Do unto them as unto the Midianites; as to Sisera, as to Jabin, at the brook of Kison:
10 Which perished at Endor: they became as dung for the earth.
11 Make their nobles like Oreb, and like Zeeb: yea, all their princes as Zebah, and as Zalmunna:
12 Who said, Let us take to ourselves the houses of God in possession.
13 O my God, make them like a wheel; as the stubble before the wind.
14 As the fire burneth a wood, and as the flame setteth the mountains on fire;
15 So persecute them with thy tempest, and make them afraid with thy storm.
16 Fill their faces with shame; that they may seek thy name, O LORD.
17 Let them be confounded and troubled for ever; yea, let them be put to shame, and perish:
18 That men may know that thou, whose name alone is JEHOVAH, art the most high over all the earth.
Tyre is being bombed today by the Israeli Air Force. Today's Arabic Palestinians falsely claim their heritage goes back to the Philistines. It is the only way they can lay claim to the land. They must use Arafat's concocted lie. The foolishness of this is that they must use Bible passages that they already claimed were part of the Zionists plot to establish their phony heritage. The Koran boasts of the Arabic heritage going back as the seed of both Ishmael and Esau neither of which have any link to the Philistines. It is no coincidence that King David should mention both Edom the home of the seed of Esau, and the Ishmaelites in one breath as the enemies of God. The Arabs are referred to as the dung of the earth in verse 10. It is no wonder Islam wants to replace the Bible with the Koran as the only book of the Holy Land.
Islam and the Arabs do not do much better in Psalm 84. A Psalm dedicated to Jewish worship in the courts of a Jewish Temple!
84:1 To the chief Musician upon Git'-tith, A Psalm for the sons of Ko'rah.
How amiable are thy tabernacles, O LORD of hosts!
2 My soul longeth, yea, even fainteth for the courts of the LORD: my heart and my flesh crieth out for the living God.
3 Yea, the sparrow hath found an house, and the swallow a nest for herself, where she may lay her young, even thine altars, O LORD of hosts, my King, and my God.
4 Blessed are they that dwell in thy house: they will be still praising thee. Selah.
5 Blessed is the man whose strength is in thee; in whose heart are the ways of them.
6 Who passing through the valley of Baca make it a well; the rain also filleth the pools.
7 They go from strength to strength, every one of them in Zion appeareth before God.
8 O LORD God of hosts, hear my prayer: give ear, O God of Jacob. Selah.
9 Behold, O God our shield, and look upon the face of thine anointed.
10 For a day in thy courts is better than a thousand. I had rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God, than to dwell in the tents of wickedness.
11 For the LORD God is a sun and shield: the LORD will give grace and glory: no good thing will he withhold from them that walk uprightly.
12 O LORD of hosts, blessed is the man that trusteth in thee.
Here Jesus is presented in His millennial glory as the LORD of hosts. His soon coming position as King of the Jews, and the King of kings to whom all must bow down! Every knee must bow to Him as the LORD of hosts, and His power will be irresistible. This leaves no room for the Islamic religion which could never bow down to a Jewish King. It is also no coincidence that the Bekah Valley should be mentioned in verse 6. The masses will be traveling through the Bekah Valley to Zion the very Jewish symbol the Arabs hate so much. They will be going to pay homage to the only true God who survives into the next dispensation. This psalm is all about the God of Jacob, and His House yet to be built by this generation of Jews on the Temple Mount. It will be better to be a doorkeeper in the House of God than to dwell in the tents of wickedness is the exhortation. The blessed of that day are they who trust in the LORD Jesus Christ who will be the King of Kings sitting on His throne in this soon coming House of God.
Friend, are you trusting in this Christ for your salvation? Why not come to Him right now, and let Him wash away all your sins in His soul cleansing blood. He is the LORD of hosts. He is the coming King of Glory. Oh Jacob, Oh sons of Islam, Oh apostate Christian, He is the LORD Jesus Christ!
O LORD of hosts, blessed is the man that trusteth in thee.

ANALYSIS: UN force in Lebanon would be a recipe for disaster
By Ze'ev Schiff, Haaretz Correspondent
Because of the difficulties and political foot-dragging involved in setting up an international force that is supposed to operate in Lebanon after the fighting is over, the Americans and Europeans proposed that the monitoring mission be placed for now on UNIFIL, whose troops are already deployed in southern Lebanon. The United Nations Interim Force in Lebanon is considered a force that has failed in a majority of its tasks, that has never managed to prevent hostilities and whose reports have been mostly opposed to Israel.
The proposal to give UNIFIL sensitive monitoring tasks attests to how uncertain it is that the international force will manage to prevent Hezbollah's activity as a militia, as stipulated by Security Council Resolution 1559 from 2004. Tasking UNIFIL with sensitive missions is a recipe for disaster and trouble. One striking example was when three Israel Defense Forces soldiers were kidnapped by Hezbollah from Israeli territory in October 2000. The abduction was organized not far from a UNIFIL outpost, and the UN troops watched as the three were transfered to a car with Lebanese plates that fled the scene.
UNIFIL was established in 1978 after Operation Litani, without the UN bothering to coordinate in advance with Israel the decision and deployment of the force. UNIFIL got into serious conflicts with the South Lebanese Army, which was working in coordination with Israel. UNIFIL did not manage to prevent the Palestinian shelling of Israel, just as it did not manage to prevent such shelling by Hezbollah. It did not play any role in preventing the war in 1982 when the IDF invaded Lebanon.
UNIFIL's most striking and long-lasting failure was its failure to prevent the infiltration of terrorist and guerrilla cells from Lebanon into Israel, which caused numerous murders. The organization also failed to protect Lebanese civilians. Units from various countries have participated in UNIFIL. Some of the, have displayed professionalism, such as the unit from Fiji. Sometimes good relations were forged between Israeli representatives and UNIFIL commanders. But for the most part these relations were laden with misunderstandings. Not infrequently, a negative phenomenon occured in which relations soured between Israel and countries that contributed troops to UNIFIL.
The force's lack of success was not a result of its belonging to the UN. In contrast to UNIFIL's failure, there is an opposite example of another UN force that manages to fulfill its tasks. This is the United Nations Disengagement Observer Force, which was established after the Yom Kippur War. The primary reason for this is that UNDOF was deployed following agreement between the two sides, Israel and Syria, on setting up the
force and its mandate.
No expectations should be pinned on UNIFIL's actions against Hezbollah and its rockets in South Lebanon. UNIFIL will make do at most with noting incidents in its control zone.
There is no chance it will take action against a rocket network or against armed people operating in the zone under its control. That could serve as a negative precedent for the UN force that will come to the region after it.
"Howl," is what the Bible says to the people who today falsely claim Palestina as their heritage. God says they will dissolve in the onslaught from the North, but not by Israel coming out of the South. Isaiah 14: 31 & 32 does have a modern day application, but it is not this present battle. I believe the Palestinian Arabs are going to find their end when they join in the Islamic invasion of Israel in Ezekiel 38 & 39. The invasion is three pronged, but the Northern prong is the most powerful. The battle may well be designated as coming out of the North because this will be the most numerous prong, and the most destructive. The Southern prong containing Libya, and all the Moslems of North Africa will be powerful, and The Eastern prong will be likewise powerful dominated by Iran. But, it is the Northern prong that will be all powerful, and able by itself to accomplish the total destruction of Israel with no help. Here will be all the Moslems North of the Caucasus Mountains including such countries as Chechnya, Georgia, etc. the "chief prince" that were once part of the old USSR the Gog in Bible prophecy. They will be joined by all the Moslems that surround the Black Sea known as Gomer. Once they cross the Caucuses they will be joined by Turkey (Togarmah) on the other side. This massive horde of Islamic invaders is with whom the Arab Palestinians cast their lot. I would watch ties between the Palestinians and the Chechnyan's during this coming phony peace sure to follow this present battle. God tells us they will dissolve as a people, and that will be the end of this short lived Palestinian State, or whatever status they reach after the present hostilities end. God is going to destroy the Islamic invaders on the fields and mountains of Israel. These barbarians coming for a prey will die in a most horrible manner. It is not nuclear. It is something far worse. It is the wrath of God!
The UN peace keepers into whom Israel will be trusting for their security apparently step aside at the face of such a horde coming out of the North. I suspect they do not fire a shot. There will be not one who will be willing to put his life in danger for a Jew. I don't know where the USA comes into play, but I suspect the leadership of this country will have no stomach to get involved probably for the same reason as the Europeans. The born again Christians will probably have been raptured away, and all who passionately love Israel will no longer be an influence.
The next coming peace that replaces the failed Road Map will undoubtedly include UN peace keepers. The plans on how they will be deployed are probably being debated this very day. Spain (Tarshish) is one of the possible UN peace keeper countries that asks the invaders what is their plan? They suspect the invasion is intended to spoil and murder (as prey) the Jews. They do not seem to be too perturbed at the thought.
13 Sheba, and Dedan, and the merchants of Tarshish , with all the young lions thereof, shall say unto thee, Art thou come to take a spoil? hast thou gathered thy company to take a prey? to carry away silver and gold, to take away cattle and goods, to take a great spoil?
14 Therefore, son of man, prophesy and say unto Gog, Thus saith the Lord GOD; In that day when my people of Israel dwelleth safely, shalt thou not know it?
15 And thou shalt come from thy place out of the north parts, thou, and many people with thee, all of them riding upon horses, a great company, and a mighty army:
16 And thou shalt come up against my people of Israel, as a cloud to cover the land; it shall be in the latter days, and I will bring thee against my land, that the heathen may know me, when I shall be sanctified in thee, O Gog, before their eyes.
It is not this present battle that should trouble your heart. It is the peace coming on it's heels that should cause great trouble. A phony peace that only leads to greater conflict. A peace that convinces Islam to invade with the idea of murdering every single Jew living in the Holy Land.
10 Thus 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:
11 And 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,
The future for Israel is bleak. Great Tribulation is what is coming to the Jews down the real road of history. A billion Moslems are having their hearts prepare for invasion knowing it is Allah's will. The problem is Allah is a phony god who is going to lead them to their death, and then laugh at them for their foolishness. The God of the Bible makes it clear He will bring them into My Land. It is the God of the Bible who will have His way. Islam will have reached the depths of depravity as had the Nazis of the last generation. It will be in the latter days. Then will God use His power to destroy them in one fell swoop. The Bible says God will be sanctified (His holiness manifested) by dissolving into mush these invaders plans to destroy Israel. Not only will the heathen be confronted with the holiness of God to their end. The Jews will also be confronted with His holiness through Great Tribulation, and they will turn to the LORD Jesus Christ acknowledging Him as their Messiah. The born again Christians will have been raptured, and the next dispensation will be having it's foundation laid. A Jewish Kingdom with a Jewish Temple will rise out of the ashes. Another peace treaty this time overseen by the antichrist will be signed giving the Jews permission to build their Temple on the Temple Mount. There will be no Islamic intervention after Ezekiel 39 takes place.
Friend are you ready? Have you received Christ as your personal Savior? The time is now! Tomorrow it may be too late. Won't you come to Him?
The End of Islam
39:1 Therefore, thou son of man, prophesy against Gog, and say, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I am against thee, O Gog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal:
2 And I will turn thee back, and leave but the sixth part of thee, and will cause thee to come up from the north parts, and will bring thee upon the mountains of Israel:
3 And I will smite thy bow out of thy left hand, and will cause thine arrows to fall out of thy right hand.
4 Thou shalt fall upon the mountains of Israel, thou, and all thy bands, and the people that is with thee: I will give thee unto the ravenous birds of every sort, and to the beasts of the field to be devoured.
5 Thou shalt fall upon the open field: for I have spoken it, saith the Lord GOD.
6 And I will send a fire on Magog, and among them that dwell carelessly in the isles: and they shall know that I am the LORD.
7 So 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.
8 Behold, it is come, and it is done, saith the Lord GOD; this is the day whereof I have spoken.
9 And they that dwell in the cities of Israel shall go forth, and shall set on fire and burn the weapons, both the shields and the bucklers, the bows and the arrows, and the handstaves, and the spears, and they shall burn them with fire seven years:
10 So that they shall take no wood out of the field, neither cut down any out of the forests; for they shall burn the weapons with fire: and they shall spoil those that spoiled them, and rob those that robbed them, saith the Lord GOD.
11 And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will give unto Gog a place there of graves in Israel, the valley of the passengers on the east of the sea: and it shall stop the noses of the passengers: and there shall they bury Gog and all his multitude: and they shall call it The valley of Hamon-gog.
12 And seven months shall the house of Israel be burying of them, that they may cleanse the land.
13 Yea, all the people of the land shall bury them; and it shall be to them a renown the day that I shall be glorified, saith the Lord GOD.
14 And they shall sever out men of continual employment, passing through the land to bury with the passengers those that remain upon the face of the earth, to cleanse it: after the end of seven months shall they search.
15 And the passengers that pass through the land, when any seeth a man's bone, then shall he set up a sign by it, till the buriers have buried it in the valley of Hamon-gog.
16 And also the name of the city shall be Hamonah. Thus shall they cleanse the land.
17 And, thou son of man, thus saith the Lord GOD; Speak unto every feathered fowl, and to every beast of the field, Assemble yourselves, and come; gather yourselves on every side to my sacrifice that I do sacrifice for you, even a great sacrifice upon the mountains of Israel, that ye may eat flesh, and drink blood.
18 Ye shall eat the flesh of the mighty, and drink the blood of the princes of the earth, of rams, of lambs, and of goats, of bullocks, all of them fatlings of Bashan.
19 And ye shall eat fat till ye be full, and drink blood till ye be drunken, of my sacrifice which I have sacrificed for you.
20 Thus ye shall be filled at my table with horses and chariots, with mighty men, and with all men of war, saith the Lord GOD.
21 And I will set my glory among the heathen, and all the heathen shall see my judgment that I have executed, and my hand that I have laid upon them.
22 So the house of Israel shall know that I am the LORD their God from that day and forward.
23 And the heathen shall know that the house of Israel went into captivity for their iniquity: because they trespassed against me, therefore hid I my face from them, and gave them into the hand of their enemies: so fell they all by the sword.
24 According to their uncleanness and according to their transgressions have I done unto them, and hid my face from them.
25 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Now will I bring again the captivity of Jacob, and have mercy upon the whole house of Israel, and will be jealous for my holy name;
26 After that they have borne their shame, and all their trespasses whereby they have trespassed against me, when they dwelt safely in their land, and none made them afraid.
27 When I have brought them again from the people, and gathered them out of their enemies' lands, and am sanctified in them in the sight of many nations;
28 Then shall they know that I am the LORD their God, which cause them to be led into captivity among the heathen: but I have gathered them unto their own land, and have left none of them any more there.
29 Neither will I hide my face any more from them: for I have poured out my spirit upon the house of Israel, saith the Lord GOD.

Says War Will Advance Realignment, Refusals Result
11:23 Aug 03, '06 / 9 Av 5766
by Yechiel Spira and Ezra HaLevi
As a result of Prime Minister Ehud Olmert's declaration that victory in the Lebanese war would advance his withdrawal plan, ten reserve soldiers have announced their refusal to fight.
For the past several months, Olmert has championed his "convergence" plan, which is in essence another unilateral withdrawal and the planned destruction of most of the remaining Jewish communities located throughout Judea and Samaria. Olmert has said he will "converge" them together into settlement blocs, but the international community has not agreed to this.
Speaking with The Associated Press on Wednesday, Prime Minister Olmert said, "I'll surprise you. I genuinely believe that the outcome of the present [conflict] and the emergence of a new order that will provide more stability and will defeat the forces of terror will help create the necessary environment that will allow me... to create a new momentum between us and the Palestinians."
"We want to separate from the Palestinians," he added. "I'm ready to do it. I'm ready to cope with these demands. It's not easy, it's very difficult, but we are elected to our positions to do things and not to sit idle."
Word of Olmert's statements quickly spread through the ranks of the IDF units fighting in Lebanon. Army Radio featured a father from Ofrah, one of the communities slated for destruction due to its proximity on the "other" side of the Partition Wall. "I text-messaged my two sons serving in Lebanon to tell them to come home," he said. "It is outrageous that the man sending them to war states that the victory they are risking their lives for will result in their family being expelled from their home, allowing it to become exactly what Gaza and southern Lebanon have become."
Shortly after, it was reported that at least ten reservists had refused to continue their emergency reserve duty if further withdrawals are truly the goal of the operation.
Olmert's public relations team later insisted that the war with Hizbullah has nothing to do with his plan, stating his planned ‘realignment’ must move forward as he promised it would prior to being elected.
Among the critics of Olmert’s plan is MK Dr. Yossi Beilin, who heads the left-wing Meretz-Yahad opposition party. Beilin stated there can be no additional unilateral Israeli policies, only withdrawals resulting from negotiations and agreements. His remarks were echoed by Arab MK Mohammad Barakeh.
Likud MK Gidon Sa’ar stated that the so-called realignment plan would bring the rockets to fall upon the entire country, and not the just the north and south as is the case today.
MK Dr. Ephraim Sneh (Labor), a former deputy defense minister, stated that it is obvious from the prime minister’s remarks that he has learned nothing from the unilateral withdrawals from Gaza and southern Lebanon.
The prime minister currently enjoys widespread support for his ongoing effort to destroy Hizbullah. Some critics are accusing the prime minister of taking advantage of his popularity to advance his political agenda, explaining he has made an error since he is splitting the nation at this critical time.
MK Effie Eitam (National Union-NRP), a retired IDF brigadier-general and former commander of forces in southern Lebanon, has been advising the prime minister and Defense Minister Amir Peretz frequently since the war broke out over three weeks ago. Eitam was quick to comment on Olmert’s AP interview, stating he made a tactical error, splitting the nation at this critical time.
Eitam told the media that following the prime minister’s interview, he was contacted by many rabbis and deans of IDF preparatory yeshiva programs, all expressing concerns regarding the timing of the prime minister’s remarks as the nation is in a state of war.
Realizing Eitam was the unofficial liaison to the Orthodox community that supports Olmert during the ongoing Hizbullah war, the Prime Minister’s Office was quick to contact him, seeking to implement damage control. Aides to the prime minister quickly issued a clarification, stating the realignment was not intended to have been the main focus of the AP interview.
Asking Eitam to convey a message to the Torah-observant public, the prime minister announced that at present, he is only dealing with efforts to halt rocket attacks, nothing else.
The prime minister’s interview broke the current momentum, with rabbis and other right-wing community leaders calling to reevaluate the war in the north, explaining it is unconscionable that soldiers living in Judea and Samaria fight for the country and then be evicted from their homes by the same army.
Eitam was called upon by Olmert to act as a go-between, seeking to allay fears and repair the damage resulting from his interview.
Eitam told the media that following a conversation with the prime minister, it is clear to him that the realignment/expulsion would not be dealt with at present. Eitam admits that the plan will be problematic at some time in the future, after the war, but for now, the nation must remain united behind the government while efforts continue to eliminate the Hizbullah threat.
Wednesday night, at a gathering of some 15,000 Jews who marched around Jerusalem's Old City at the fast of Tisha B'Av began, Women in Green co-founder Nadia Matar called upon all those present to bring their children home from the war front in order to defend their homes in Judea and Samaria, unless Olmert announces the cancellation of his plan.
Manhigut Yehudit, the Jewish Leadership faction within the Likud, was calling for refusal even prior to PM Olmert's explicit statements, saying it was obvious that the war's goal is to prove to the Israeli public that past withdrawals had been beneficial.
Already last week, Manhigut director Michael Fuah issued such a call. “We must remember what the IDF was busy with exactly a year ago,” he wrote in an essay published on Arutz-7's Hebrew site Tuesday. “The IDF, in its present state, is not capable of beating Hizbullah. When one adds the supposed ethical code the IDF is charged with – where the Defense Minister praises a soldier for refraining from shooting at a terrorist holding a child on one hand and his gun in the other – there is no chance for victory.”
Fuah adds that he realizes the stance is not a popular one, but while the Prime Minister continues to say he will continue with the destruction of Jewish communities and the expulsion of their residents, only such a refusal movement can demand:
1. Replacement of the IDF top brass who took part in the expulsion.
2. Rewriting of the IDF's ethical code to rule out endangering soldiers to protect the lives of terrorists and those around them.
3. A decision by the Knesset and the cabinet allowing all those expelled from Gaza, Samaria and the Sinai to return to their homes.
More than 10% of soldiers killed in combat in Lebanon hail from towns in Judea and Samaria - three times their proportion in the general population.
Olmert has put it on record that he is fighting this war for his liberal political view. He is not fighting it for God. Israel has gone itnto this battle without God. The liberals don't need Him, or do they intend to ever obey Him. The give away liberal plan is still in place. Next, they want to fix it as part of the coming peace. It is the worst part of the dead blasphemous Road Map that Olmert intends to revive. His view is that all the gains of the 67 War have turned into a curse, and must be given away. This would include both Jerusalem, and the Temple Mount. He does not contemplate that the curse is because of his, and his followers disobedience. The giving back to Islam the keys to the Temple Mount is where the blessings turned into curses. The giving away of the Holy Land that God has provided for them continues the cursing. It will not be until the Jews regain the Temple Mount keys, and the lands they keep giving away that the present curses will be lifted. Right now the blind false shepherds are leading the Jews in this present conflict. The religious Jews must wait until God either turns their heart, replaces them, or kills them. Until one of these three things happen the curse on the Jewish State will only get worse. The Law of God will prevail. The next dispensation will not be stopped.
11 Say unto them, As I live, saith the Lord GOD, I have no pleasure in the death of the wicked; but that the wicked turn from his way and live: turn ye, turn ye from your evil ways; for why will ye die, O house of Israel?
It is not just the liberal Jews who are in need of repentance. The Orthodox Religious Jews have their own problems with spiritual pride. Right now they do not sacrifice for sin as God so clearly commanded in the Old Testament. The old excuse that we don't control Jerusalem ended in 1967. It is almost 40 years now since the religious Jews were without excuse. I suppose they could now claim it is the liberal Jews who prevent them from obeying God, but that is a feeble excuse in my estimation. They know how to be forceful with their own brothers, and if the heart was really into obedience the task would have been accomplished. Most of these religious Jews do not want to upset the apple cart. They are satisfied with the present state of Jewish worship without the Temple, and have no intent to change things that they now control. I can tell you from the Bible that God is not satisfied! Even if these Religious Jews began to sacrifice as they ought, it would not be acceptable! The only acceptable sacrifice must be made in remembrance of what Christ did at Calvary for the sinner. The religious Jewish heart still has a long way to go until it is ready to enter into His coming Kingdom.
10 Who is there even among you that would shut the doors for nought? neither do ye kindle fire on mine altar for nought. I have no pleasure in you, saith the LORD of hosts, neither will I accept an offering at your hand.
11 For from the rising of the sun even unto the going down of the same my name shall be great among the Gentiles; and in every place incense shall be offered unto my name, and a pure offering: for my name shall be great among the heathen, saith the LORD of hosts.
The coming peace of the Olmert Government is already cursed before it is even put down in ink. The tribulation of the Jews is only going to continue. The entire world will suffer as a result of Jewish disobedience to the God of the Bible. The world has no room to use this fact for anti-Semitism because if God dealt with them for their own sins apart from the Jews they would all be roasting in hell right now. The end of the times of the gentiles is here. The next dispensation is the Jewish Kingdom Age. The gentiles will not be allowed to dominate under the thousand year reign of the King of kings and LORD of Lords. Perfect Judaism will be the world wide religion. A Judaism based on the LORD Jesus Christ as the Jewish Messiah. It can't happen until the present "born again" Christians are raptured out of present apostate Christianity that such a dispensational change take place. The Jews must then turn to the Christ of those who will have been supernaturally raptured before the foundation of perfect Judaism can be laid. The present conflict in the Holy Land is part of what it will take to accomplish these things.
Friend, in this dispensation you must by yourself come to Christ. The issue of your sin is between you, and Him, and no other. You are the one obligated to come to Him for the blood cleansing power He has over your sin. He will not force Himself on you. You must come of your own volition. Oh friend, won't you come to Him right now for salvation?

3 Dead, 160 Injured in Rocket Barrage on Haifa
Three Israelis were killed and scores more wounded in a rocket barrage that slammed into Haifa a few minutes before 8:00 pm Sunday evening.
Released for Publication: 12 Reservists Killed in Rocket Attack

Twelve reservists were killed on Sunday by a Katyusha that landed in an open area where they were gathered, next to kibbutz Kfar Giladi located near Kiryat Shmona.
The names of the victims have not yet been released, but families have been informed.
The reservists were killed by a rocket that was part of a massive barrage that hit the north at noontime on Sunday, while they were sitting outside the Kfar Giladi cemetery. Two of the 12 died of their wounds after arriving at Sieff Hospital in Tzfat. Three more were critically injured and a fourth was listed in moderate condition. Six suffered light wounds.
Heavy damage was caused to the area, and two cars could be seen burning on television footage two hours after the rocket hit.
“This shouldn’t have happened,” said a resident of Kfar Giladi. “We sounded the alert before the rocket hit.” However, another resident added that the group, which had gathered in the open area, had nowhere to run when the alert was sounded.
"We had no place to hide. I saw Katyushas hitting cars and people shouting. Within four to five minutes paramedics arrived to rescue them," said 30-year-old reservist Dimitri Lipovsky. He said he and his comrades were standing under a tree when the siren sounded.
The Homefront Command continued to emphasize, via the media, the importance of remaining in protected areas. The warning was reiterated on Sunday evening, when a rocket barrage that slammed into Haifa left three dead and at least 100 injured.
Aftert the Kfar Giladi attack, Hizbullah's Al-Manar television station broadcast a special bulletin, with the announcement, "Today is one of achievements. The enemy has admitted to having dead and wounded following landing of the resistance rockets. The enemy's television pictures show the great blow and panic. There are cases of collapsed nerves and hysteria on their part. They never expected a great blow such as this by our resistance rockets."
In Shechem (Nablus), the largest Palestinian Authority-controlled city in the Shomron, dozens of cars set off in a joyous convoy, honking and flaunting pictures of Hizbullah leader arch-terrorist Sheikh Nasrallah. Chants for rockets on Tel Aviv were heard, according to the Ynet news service. Candy was distributed in the Gaza Strip.
Five soldiers were killed over the weekend: In a pre-dawn battle Friday morning in Markabeh in southern Lebanon, three soldiers fell: Capt. Igor Rotshtein, 34, of Moshav Poriyah N'vei Oved near Tiberias, Staff Sgt. Daniel Shiran, 20, from Haifa, and Staff Sgt. Omri Almakayis (Yakobitvich), 20, of Ramle. At least seven terrorists were killed in the battle.
Later on Friday, Sgt. Ohr Shachar, 20, of Kibbutz Yad Mordechai, was killed when a mortar shell hit his tank in the eastern sector of Lebanon, north of Misgav Am. Yesterday (Saturday) afternoon, Pvt. Kyril Kashdan, 26, from Haifa, was killed in an exchange of fire in Ita a-Sha'b. Some 40 terrorists have been killed so far in the eastern sector.
An IDF force operating in the area discovered an unexploded 120-mm mortar, aimed at Israel, with 100 mortar shells alongside it.
Four civilians were killed in Katyusha attacks on Friday, including a man from Sh'ar Yashuv, a woman from the Druze village of Mrar, and two men from the Arab town of Majdal Krum.
Four more were killed on the Sabbath: An 85-year-old woman from Kiryat Ata, north of Haifa, who ran to a shelter during a Katyusha siren, suffered a fatal heart attack upon her return home. In addition, three Arab women - a mother and two grown daughters - were killed when a Katyusha scored a direct hit on their home in Areb al-Aramsha, on the Lebanese border, 10 kilometers east of the Mediterranean Sea.
The barbarians dance in the streets like wild animals at the word that Jewish blood was spilt. These terrorists who represent Islam if only by tongue in cheek have reached the depths of human depravity. They are not human anymore. They have long ago sold out their humanity to hate. This generation has been raised, and nurtured by Islam to hate the Jew. They hate anyone who does not hate the Jews like they do. They have turned themselves into wild animals. They have no conscience. They can murder babies and children without remorse. They target babies in carriages when stalking their Jewish prey. They target children's school buses as long as they are Jewish. These barbarians use their own children as human shields. They send their own children out as suicide bombers. They murder Arab, Drew, or whatever their dumb bombs may come close. Their rockets are made with care in Syria filled with hundreds of ball bearings to do the most vicious damage to a human being that they could possibly do. They have taken total depravity to the same depths as the Nazis who went before them. Their lust for Jewish blood may even surpass that of the Nazis. It is this generation of Islam that must be judged as it was the last generation of Nazis who could not escape the judgment of the God of the Bible.
The Russians treated the Nazis as they were treated, and their end was horrific. The allies were more humane, but we still fire bombed them into submission. There was no mercy shown for the most part, and Nazi became the most foul word in the world. The suffering of the Jews at the hands of the Nazis mellowed the heart of the world if for a moment, and the State of Israel was born in 1948. It was born on the dung pile left behind by the fall of the Nazis. Only the Nazis protested the end that the God of the Bible planed for them. This same God has a plan for the end of Islam. It will be spectacular. It will be the hand of God, and take place in a moment. The wild animals will go into animalistic frenzy once they cross into the Holy Land. The lust for blood will overwhelm these invaders, and they will not discriminate as they slash out in hate. The Bible says many of their Islamic brothers will be their victims as is happening this very day. The Nazis murdered many of their brothers also. Many a German was put to death for not being Nazi enough. So also as the terrorists care nothing about the Arabs their rockets kill so also will these Islamic invaders not care who's blood they spill.
21 And 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.
22 And I will plead against him with pestilence and with blood; and I will rain upon him, and upon his bands, and upon the many people that are with him, an overflowing rain, and great hailstones, fire, and brimstone.
23 Thus will I magnify myself, and sanctify myself; and I will be known in the eyes of many nations, and they shall know that I am the LORD.
The God of the Bible unlike the false god Allah is not blood thirsty. The Bible says He will plead with the Islamic invaders to turn away from the god leading them to their death, and come to Him for life. These Islamic invaders will be confronted with the Christ of the Bible who is the Jewish Messiah, and the soon coming King of the Jews. They will be forced to summit to Him first with pestilence, then with blood, then rain, then overflowing rain, and finally great hailstones, fire, and brimstone. The Bible says nothing will break their hardened wild animalistic hearts. Their depravity will be beyond redemption, and so they will die on the mountains and fields of Israel. A generation raised, and nurtured on Jewish hate will find their horrific end in Ezekiel 39.
Friend, I pray your end will not be as theirs. The life the God of the Bible offers is eternal. Only Christ can forgive you of your sins. He sacrificed His perfect life on Calvary so sinners could be saved. Won't you come to Him right now?
15 That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life .
16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

Security Cabinet to IDF: Take it to the Litani River
17:51 Aug 09, '06 / 15 Av 5766
by Hana Levi Julian
The security cabinet gave the IDF the go-ahead on Wednesday to broaden ground operations and take control of southern Lebanon up to the Litani River.
The vote was unanimous, with three abstentions.
Shas party Chairman and Industry and Trade Minister Eli Yishai spoke to reporters after the meeting, which took several hours. “The assessment is that it is going to last 30 days,” he said somberly. “I think it is wrong to make this assessment. I think it will take a lot longer.” Yishai was one of the ministers who abstained from the vote. Vice Premier Shimon Peres (Labor) and Minister Ofir Pines also abstained.
Prime Minister Ehud Olmert and Defense Minister Amir Peretz were charged with the task of defining the timing and scope of the operation, which is aimed at finding and destroying the rocket launchers used to attack communities in northern Israel.
Knesset Member Yuval Shteinitz (Likud) praised the decision but said it should have come a month ago.
"Finally, the government has made the obvious decision - to assign the IDF with the task of defending the country from missiles and rockets. It is just a shame that the decision comes four weeks late, during which severe damage was done to the home front and heavy economic losses were incurred."
Shteinitz added that only the IDF will be able to eliminate the Hizbullah from southern Lebanon, as opposed to any international or Lebanese military.
The decision came in one of the bloodiest weeks of fighting since the war began.
On Sunday, 12 reservists were killed when a Katyusha rocket slammed into their gathering site outside the cemetery at Kibbutz Kfar Giladi, near Kiryat Shmona. Eleven Israeli civilians died and more than 150 wounded and shocked in rocket barrages across the north the same day.
Monday saw two soldiers killed and seven wounded as they once again fought for control of the village of Bint Jbeil, a central Hizbullah stronghold. IDF troops had taken control of the village on July 25th after several days of bloody battles in which eight soldiers lost their lives.
On Tuesday, five soldiers were killed and 23 wounded. Defense Minister Amir Peretz warned the same day that Israel would push back Hizbullah terrorists if diplomatic measures did not succeed.
Massive Western Aliyah This Week, Despite Month of War
13:34 Aug 09, '06 / 15 Av 5766
by Ezra HaLevi
Despite the two-front war, the thousands of missiles, and the evacuation of northern communities, more than 800 North American and British Jews are moving to Israel this week.
After a month of war, and even though they have had plenty of time to postpone or reschedule their Aliyah (immigration to Israel), four planeloads of Jews are scheduled to arrive in Ben Gurion airport in the coming week – the first on Thursday.
On Wednesday, August 16th – the one year anniversary of the forced eviction of the Jews of Gaza – three simultaneous flights will arrive. Embodying the Jewish prayer that the nation be gathered “from the four corners of the Earth,” the planes will depart from Canada, America and England – all arriving simultaneously in the Holy Land.
The August 16, 2006 influx will constitute the largest number of Jews in history making Aliyah to Israel from Western countries in a single day.
Overall this summer, 3,000 North American and British Jews are moving to Israel on specially chartered flights organized by the Nefesh b'Nefesh Aliyah assistance organization, in close cooperation with the Jewish Agency.
Greeting the arrivals Thursday will be Minister of Public Security and former Shabak Chief Avi Dichter (Kadima) and Minister of Immigrant Absorption Ze'ev Boim (Kadima). Opposition leader MK Binyamin Netanyahu greeted the last group of arrivals last month.
Visit the Nefesh b'Nefesh web site to learn about immigrating to Israel or sign up to greet the new immigrants upon their arrival.
The God of the Bible is at work in the Holy Land. He is bringing the last of the Jews who will be part of this third miraculous Exodus to the Holy Land. Not every single Jew will be part of this Exodus. When the Jews came back for the second miraculous Exodus from Babylon it was only a part of the Jewish nation. More stayed behind then those who participated in the Exodus. It is the faithful remnant that always is the center of God's plans. The nations, the masses, do not understand the counsel of God. They can't comprehend His thoughts. It is beyond them that God would subject the whole world of Christ rejecters to death for just a faithful few.
This present dispensation is coming to an end. The times of the gentiles is almost finished. The Bible teaches that a faithful few will be raptured on the last day of the Church Age from among the great apostate whore known as today's Christianity. A new dispensation will then be ready to set it's own foundation. It will be based completely on the Bible, and will fulfill all the promises God made to the founding Fathers of the Bible. A perfect Kingdom is coming to planet earth. It will replace the Church Age. It is promised to the Jews, and will have a perfect Jewish King to rule it for 1000 years. He will establish His throne in the Holy Land, at Jerusalem, and on the Temple Mount. He will teach a perfect Judaism based on the entire Bible. The book of Leviticus will be brought back from obscurity based on the remembrance of Calvary. The Old and New Testaments will merge into one. Christ will be the link that puts it all together. Perfect Judaism will be the only religion of the Kingdom Age! Ezekiel's Temple, the only Holy Jewish Temple with a throne, will be the only place on the planet where blood sacrifice will be accepted.
7 And he said unto me, Son of man, the place of my throne , and the place of the soles of my feet, where I will dwell in the midst of the children of Israel for ever, and my holy name, shall the house of Israel no more defile, neither they, nor their kings, by their whoredom, nor by the carcases of their kings in their high places.
18 And he said unto me, Son of man, thus saith the Lord GOD; These are the ordinances of the altar in the day when they shall make it, to offer burnt offerings thereon, and to sprinkle blood thereon.
29 The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world .
The Bible teaches that when the LORD returns He will manifest Himself as the LORD of hosts. His power will be irresistible. His perfect will of perfect righteousness will rule. Every knee shall bow to His might. Friend, it is good to know this mighty God will sit with the little children. We shall see the manifestation of His perfect love in the midst of His perfect power. He will be the same Jesus of whom we know from the New Testament. All the love will be there every day of His reign. The one thing that will be different is that sin will not be allowed to ruin the lives of the Kingdom's citizens. Sin will just not be allowed. Men when confronted with their sin will need immediately seek the forgiveness from our King who shed His Blood for the sin of the world, or they will be put to death. Perfect law will govern the perfect Kingdom. It will be something new, yet it all is written from times of old in the Bible. This third miraculous Exodus into the Holy Land during these perilous days has this single grand purpose as the focus. The Jews who will lay that perfect foundation for the Kingdom Age are being gathered together for this purpose. God has promised He will soon prepare their hearts for redemption. A redemption that can only come through the LORD Jesus Christ.
Friend, in this present dispensation redemption can be yours this very moment. Your heart can be changed. Your sins can all be washed away. Friend, won't you come to Christ?

Ceasefire Plan Does Not Eliminate Hizbullah Threat
05:36 Aug 11, '06 / 17 Av 5766
by Yechiel Spira
The draft ceasefire plan agreed to by the United States and France may result in an Israeli withdrawal from southern Lebanon, but it will not disarm Hizbullah.
It appears that United Nations efforts are concentrating on halting Israeli military operations throughout Lebanon, but no effort is being made to eliminate the Hizbullah threat. The draft agreement only calls for pushing Hizbullah north of the Litani, not far enough from Israel’s northern border to place Hizbullah rockets out of range from northern Israeli civilian population centers.
While the draft agreement supports UN Resolution 1559, demanding Hizbullah be disarmed by the Lebanese government, it does not make this a precondition to the implementation of the ceasefire.
The plan calls or the deployment of the current UNIFIL force in southern Lebanon, to be supported by some 10,000 French forces and 15,000 Lebanese army troops. Other countries may also send troops to take part in the force, which will be responsible to prevent Hizbullah attacks into Israel.
Lebanese authorities and Hizbullah are already signaling the plan is unacceptable since it does not demand an immediate withdrawal of Israeli forces from southern Lebanon, but permits a gradual withdrawal of forces over a month. In addition, Lebanese officials are calling the plan discriminatory, since it mentions the need to work towards the release of captive IDF soldiers while not making mention of the release of Lebanese soldiers.
In Jerusalem, Prime Minister Ehud Olmert and Defense Minister Amir Peretz have put the next stage of the IDF anti-Hizbullah offensive in southern Lebanon on hold, realizing a stepped-up offensive at this time would compromise White House efforts to broker a ceasefire. Prime Minister Ehud Olmert is expressing cautious optimism, but has decided not to permit Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni to travel to New York to address the Security Council, fearing such a move would increase pressure on Israel.
In 30 days, the agreement will seek more comprehensive ceasefire terms as well as formulating solutions towards the release of three IDF captive soldiers.
The agreement is being rejected by the IDF, with members of the General Staff expressing strong opposition, stating the plan prevents planned efforts towards reducing the Hizbullah threat. Military officials fear the implementation of the draft ceasefire will do nothing to disarm the terror organization.
Defense Minister Peretz in statements released in Jerusalem on Thursday stated that prior to advancing military operations; all diplomatic channels would be exhausted. The senior minister added that there are several points that must be included in any ceasefire plan, including the deployment of a multinational stabilization force in southern Lebanon, removing the threat of future Katyusha rocket attacks against Israel, disarming Hizbullah and setting in motion a plan towards the release of captive IDF soldiers.
Olmert charged, and then retreated at the first opportunity. It is his liberal cold feet that are causing such hesitation. He has no confidence in God. His lip service liberal religion loses all credibility when the rubber meets the road. This is not the man who will lead Israel to victory. Much like King Saul he will have his hide nailed to the enemy's wall. Israel needs a King David. A man who trusts God, and has the confidence needed to put Hizb'allah in their place. It is so sad to see a whimp like Olmert running the country. I expect the Jews are in for a terrible time. I know God is in full control. He may be letting the barbarians become over confident with this in and out battle plan? I know God can use even a whimp like Olmert to defeat His enemies. Olmert, by persecuting the Independent Fundamental Jewish Settlers has put himself in a bad way with God. Olmert intends to out do Sharon who forced 8,000 Settlers from their homes in Gaza. We have seen what happened to Sharon. Olmert is still intent on removing over 250,000 Settlers from Judah and Samaria. Even worse is the intent to give away most of Jerusalem and sovereignty over the Temple Mount to the Islamic barbarians. God has a way of making bad intents come back to bite!
1 Samuel 18:11
11 And Saul cast the javelin; for he said, I will smite David even to the wall with it. And David avoided out of his presence twice.
1 Samuel 31:10
10 And they put his armour in the house of Ashtaroth: and they fastened his body to the wall of Beth-shan.
Today, Olmert is back in, but his track record is terrible. Rather then being focused on victory, he seems to be focused on pleasing the world's politicians. A group that does not have Israel's best interests at heart. The marching orders ought to be fight until Hizb'allah dare never fire another rocket. Fight until the whole world can see the God of the Bible can't be intimidated by the heathen barbarians. Fight until Syria dare never send another militant outside their boarders. Olmert will probably fight until the first set back, and then whine for the US to come up with another ceasefire plan. Islam is in this fight to the death. The Jews must fight with the same determination, or they will lose. The Jews must fight for the God of their fathers. Islam wants to subject the Holy Land to Islamic Law. They refuse to ever submit to Biblical Law. Islam wants the Koran to replace the Bible in the Holy Land. God has brought forth the Jewish nation to break the Islamic back for this blasphemous thought. Now is the time that the Jews must fight.
I expect the cost to the Jews is going to be great. The hardness of the Jewish heart must be broken. The Jews must be turned back to God. --- Ha - While I'm writing Olmert is out again? The news report is he accepted the US ceasefire demands even while the tanks are moving into Lebanon. Well, if the war cost them almost nothing the peace is going to be heart wrenching. Folks, Olmert's heart was never in this battle, and we will now move into his liberal peace. The road to Armageddon is wide open. I'm sorry for those Jewish families who lost loved ones for nothing. I'm sorry for all those Jewish families who lost property to the rocket attacks again for nothing. I expect the spin for this phony peace will be great. Under the spin over 250,000 Independent Fundamental Jewish Settlers can now expect Olmert to show his furious hate for them that he never showed against Hizb'allah. Now, we will see real resolve by Olmert. Every single Jewish family living in Judah and Samaria will be evicted. There will be no exceptions. They will be evicted to the last woman and child. The Jews always respect their leaders. Olmert will go down in history as one of the worst. Oh for a David to follow this Saul.

Neighbors Smell Blood in Israeli Cease-Fire Acceptance
16:53 Aug 13, '06 / 19 Av 5766
by Ezra HaLevi
Arabs and Muslims from Iran, Hizbullah and the PA are celebrating Israel’s acceptance of the UN ceasefire, dubbing it a "surrender" and calling on Arab states to attack the new "weak" Israel.
“After one month of war against Lebanon's resistance, Israelis are the absolute losers and Hizbullah is the absolute winner of the war,” Iran's Foreign Ministry spokesman Hamida-Reza Asefi said Sunday. “The occupiers of Jerusalem failed, despite their military, economic, intelligence and diplomatic backings.”
The Iranian official said the Islamic Republic of Iran is “very pleased” with the ceasefire, according to state-run Iranian news agency IRNA. He warned, though, that attacks on Israel would continue as long as “occupation lingers.” He declined to outline whether occupation included retaining sovereignty in regions such as the Galilee – which Hizbullah chief Hassan Nasrallah has termed “settlements” in his wartime addresses. "Let us not forget that as long as there is occupation there is resistance," he added.
Hizbullah central council member Ahmed Barakat told Qatari newspaper al-Watan Sunday, "Today Arab and Muslim society is reasonably certain that the defeat of Israel is possible, and that countdown to the disappearance of the Zionist entity in the region has begun… If a mere organization succeeded in defeating Israel, why would Arab nations not succeed in doing so if they allied? Many Arabs and Muslims viewed Israel in a fictional way and the resistance has succeeded in changing this."
Barakat boasted that none of Hizbullah’s leadership were injured, and that the group still possesses thousands of rockets and other “surprises” for use in the days following the implementation of the UN ceasefire. He added that the remaining missiles and weapons allow Hizbullah to strike Israel from afar and do not require the group to be near Israel’s border.
Photos of Hizbullah-leader Hassan Nasrallah “hang everywhere in Ramallah,” according to Al-Jazeera, “covering the walls and shop fronts and plastered across T-shirts and demonstration banners.” The number-one song in Ramallah this summer, “blaring [repeatedly] out of shops and streets stalls,” is "The Eagle of Lebanon," referring to the Hizbullah chief.
“Secularists, Christians and Muslims alike refer to the Hizbullah leader as Palestine's newest and truest hero,” the Al-Jazeera report states. “Back at Manara square in Ramallah, Waleed Ayyoub is still selling the Nasrallah images to ‘all people of all ages - even little children.’ He is especially proud of a sale made to an Arab-Israeli woman from Haifa, fleeing the Katyusha attacks on her city.”
Israel fought a war without God, and now they are going into a liberal peace without God. The liberal government officials showed no shame in expelling the Independent Fundamental Jewish Settlers from Gaza. Now they will show resolve that they never showed in their attempt to wipe out Hizb'allah. Watch the resolve to expel every Independent Fundamental Jewish Settler from Judah and Samaria! They will be expelled from their homes to the last woman and child. The settlers will be given no choice. The government will show them it will use whatever force is necessary to remove them. Their resistance will be futile in the face of such resolve. These liberal politicians will show no mercy to the settlers who only want to obey the God of the Bible by occupying the Holy Land. God tells what His attitude is toward those who are not ashamed of their abominations. He says they will fall among them that fall. When He comes to visit the Jewish people these Jews shall be cast down. They didn't want God in their politics, and God does not want them in His coming Kingdom. We "born again" Christians will be raptured from the great apostate whore of today's Christianity, but these Jews will be left behind to face the God who wrote these words through Jeremiah. Pray for them dear friends that they may be turned.
A remnant of Jews will become faithful to God after the rapture of the "born again" Christians. They will have a personal relationship with their Messiah. The Apostate Christian Church will continue to preach about the gentle peaceable christ who would not hurt a fly. Who would never judge men, and cast them into hell. A christ who would approve peace with the barbarians without a change of heart. The Jewish remnant will preach about their Messiah's soon coming as the Mighty LORD of hosts. Folks, Christ is not coming back to die on the cross which is where the gentiles would put Him. He is coming for His chosen people though only a remnant much as the truly "born again" are only a remnant of Christianity. Jesus Christ is coming again as the irresistible Jewish King of kings, and LORD of Lords! He is coming back to the Holy Land. His foot will touch on the Mount of Olives which is the exact point where He left. He will walk across the Kidron Valley and enter Ezekiel's Temple through the East Gate. His glory will fill the Temple. The remnant of saved Jews will bow down to their redeemer king for whom they built the Temple. The end of the times of the gentiles will have arrived. The nations will be judged! Much like old King Belshazzar they will be found wanting. Only those who can bow down to this Jewish King of kings will enter into His Kingdom. Perfect holiness, perfect righteousness, perfect peace will rule planet earth. Only then will the peace of Jerusalem become reality.
This peace being reported today is no peace! It is the invention of evil men who must be cast down before the Biblical peace can come. True peace will only be for a remnant much like Noah and his family. A remnant such as those who are soon to be raptured, and will experience the marriage supper of the Lamb. The times of the gentiles will end seven short years after the rapture, and another phony peace treaty that the Antichrist will make with the Jews. The wrath of God is still to be manifested before real peace can come.
Friend, we are still in the Church Age dispensation though the days grow few. You can still come to Christ! You can have peace with the absolutely Holy God of the Bible. The LORD Jesus Christ sacrificed Himself on Calvary so your sins could be forgiven. He has promised to save every one who will come to Him in humble repentance with all their heart, soul, and might. This act of submission to the soon coming LORD of hosts is what He requires. You will no longer be His enemy. You will allow Him to lavish His love which has no bounds upon your worthless soul. Your soul for the first time will have value. It will have worth. You will become part of the remnant for which Christ died. Oh sinner, won't you come to Christ for salvation?

Israelis Will Fight for Normal Life for Years to Come
18:51 Aug 14, '06 / 20 Av 5766
by Hana Levi Julian
Prime Minister Ehud Olmert told the Knesset Monday afternoon that Israelis have been fighting for years to live normal lives and that "unfortunately, we will be fighting" for years to come.
He said the United Nations Security Council "will change at the foundation" the situation in southern Lebanon. Prime Minister Olmert said the resolution is "historic" because it makes Lebanon and not Hizbullah responsible for security in its country. After praising the armed forces, firemen, police and rescue personnel, the Prime Minister said that Israel's retaliation is a clear signal that the country will not allow itself to be attacked.
He also said that the resolution is conditioned on the return of two soldiers kidnapped by Hizbullah terrorists, although the issue is a non-binding clause in the U.N. proclamation.
Olmert told the Knesset that Israel will win the war against terror with determination. "The struggle against terror did not begin today" and it will not be over immediately, the Prime Minister added.
Three Knesset Members from the left-wing Meretz and from Arab parties were tossed out of the chambers during the speech for interrupting the Prime Minister.
Opposition Leader Binyamin (Bibi) Netanyahu (Likud) addressed the Knesset following the speech by the Prime Minster and said that the war clearly puts an end to the concept of unilateral withdrawals.
Israel demolished more than 25 Jewish communities in the Gaza and northern Samarian regions last year and turned over the territory to the Palestinian Authority (PA) without a bi-lateral agreement. Prime Minister Ehud Olmert has proposed further unilateral moves throughout Judea and Samaria.
The government needs unity but also needs a careful self-examination concerning the war against Hizbullah terrorists, said Netanyahu.
He criticized the Olmert administration for not declaring an emergency situation at the outset of the war. The former prime minister also attacked Prime Minister Olmert for not accomplishing the return of two kidnapped IDF soldiers and the disarming of Hizbullah.
France Insists Its UNIFIL Troops Not To Disarm Hizbullah
21:13 Aug 14, '06 / 20 Av 5766
(IsraelNN.com) French troops in the proposed multi-national UNIFIL force in Lebanon will not act to disarm Hizbullah terrorists. France has offered to send soldiers who would make up about half of the UNIFIL force.
French Foreign Minister Philippe Douste-Blazy made the statement in a newspaper interview, despite the resolution's statement calling for a demilitarization of southern Lebanon.
The ceasefire is in place! Well, maybe it is in place? The war is over! Well, maybe the war is over? The Jews are waiting for the UNIFIL troops to take their positions so they can pull out of Lebanon! Well, maybe the Jews will pull out even though France is already on record that their soldiers will, not enforce the demilitarization of Southern Lebanon? What kind of a peace plan is this? Watch the liberal spin make "now you see it" into "now you don't." The truth, the obvious, is about to be smoke screened so the lie can be presented. Right now the majority of Jews do not want the truth. They are waiting with batted breath for Olmert to give them the lie that they want to hear. The lie that the Jews must just suck in their bellies, and be a forever victim of the Islamic barbarians. Olmert who moved his own family to France has been in the past perfectly willing to sacrifice the Independent Fundamental Jewish Settlers to the indiscriminant rocket attacks of both Hamas and Hizb'allah. Now, he is apparently willing to sacrifice his own liberal constituents living in the comfort of the big cities saying the rocket and suicide bombers will be part of Jewish life for untold years ahead. It is no big deal for Olmert, and he thinks the Jewish people should just accept this as a fact of life. The Jews have a long history of accepting the victims roll. They silently went into the gas chambers of World War Two with this attitude. It did gain them for a moment the sympathy of the world in that they were allowed to form the State of Israel in 1948. Arab armies were expected to wipe them off the map anyway so it was no big deal. The surprise was that the rag tag army of the Jews fought the mighty modernized Arab Armies to a stand still. The hand of God was clearly evident.
Today, one is hard pressed to see the hand of God in anything going on in the Holy Land. The barbarians are dancing in the streets. They see the hand of Allah moving toward the ethnic cleansing of all Jews from the Holy Land. They see their barbarian god blessing them through the indiscriminant murder of Jewish women and children. They are convinced Allah has given their rag tag army a great victory over the hated Jews, and the world mostly agrees. Olmert's planned withdrawal of Judah and Samaria will seal such thinking. Especially if most of Jerusalem, and Jewish sovereignty over the Temple Mount is included. The God of the Bible will be perceived as weak when confronted by the Islamic barbarians. Benjamin Netanyahu seems to say what conservatives like to hear, but he too is willing to give away Judah and Samaria. The only difference is that Netanyahu wants some payoff while Olmert just wants to get rid of the gains made by the 1967 war that ended Jordanian sovereignty over the Holy Land. It is interesting that Jordan does not want either Judah, or Samaria back. They want nothing to do with the Arab Palestinian barbarians who would overthrow the Jordanian monarchy in a flash. The Palestinians already tried, and now the Jordanian Army keeps them penned up in their refugee camps under much more stringent conditions then the Jews ever treated the Arabs under their sovereign control. Olmert can't even pay Jordan to take them back. Netanyahu foolishly thinks he can bargain with the beast by waving Judah, Samaria, Jerusalem, and the Temple Mount like a piece of chicken in front of their snout. The barbarians know only how to terrorize, and grab everything that they can. There is no bargaining with this beast as the Jordanians well understand. They must be permanently corralled, or they will just run amuck in animalistic frenzy.
Today, Israel is serving other gods. They are playing the game of politics, and playing right into the hands of the Islamic barbarians. They are not obeying the LORD their God, and have turned His blessings into a curse! God is proving this generation of Jews with the intent of turning them back to Himself. The Jews must put away the evil they have perpetuated by letting the barbarians gain a victory through indecisiveness, and lack of trust in the God of the Bible. The Jews are suffering the curse of God because they have elected wicked men who gave the barbarians the victory. Timid men who let the barbarians take the victory away from them. Liberal politicians who allowed the gods of the people round about make the God of the Bible look weak. These evil people do not persecute the barbarians with the same resolve they persecute the Independent Fundamental Jewish Settlers who are trying to posses the Promised Land as God has commanded. This curse will only increase in intensity as long as the humanistic liberal Jews govern.
Friend, you also are under the curse of God if you still reject Christ. You abide under His wrath, and your end is death then hell. The LORD Jesus Christ came into this terrible world of sin to save sinners. Unless you come to Him you will die in your sins. Won't you come to Him this day, and allow Him to wrap you in His soul cleansing blood which is a product of His love. He is the miracle worker who only glorified God in all He did. He can do a miracle in your life if you will only come. Won't you come to Him?

Hamas, Fatah seek unity in chaotic Gaza
According to The Jerusalem Post, the rival Fatah and Hamas factions are close to reaching an agreement on forming a national unity government, Palestinian Authority officials in the West Bank revealed Monday. Palestinian Authority officials reported Monday that PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas was scheduled to hold talks in Gaza City with Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh over the establishment of a new government and ways of ending tensions between Abbas's Fatah party and Haniyeh's Hamas movement. The Palestinians are hoping that the ceasefire in Lebanon will now shift the world's attention back to them following a month of complaints that the international community was no longer interested in the West Bank and Gaza. According to the PA Information Minister, a Hamas member, the implication of the IDF's "defeat" by Hizb'Allah in Lebanon is the beginning of the end to the "Zionist project" in the Middle East. "Israel will fail in Palestine the same way it failed in Lebanon," he said.
Syria: Mideast without terror is
Nasrallah, Assad praise Hizb'Allah "victory" after ceasefire
In his first speech since the ceasefire between Israel and Hizb'Allah was declared, Syrian President Bashar Assad said Tuesday that America's plan for a "new Middle East" has collapsed after what he described as Hizb'Allah's successful war against Israel.
Assad, speaking to a journalists' association, said the region had changed "because of the achievements of the resistance [Hizb'Allah]. The American plan to create a new Middle East turned into an illusion the moment Hizb'Allah won in Lebanon."
US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice had commented early on in the month-long war between Hizb'Allah and Israel that any settlement should be a long-lasting one and lead to a "new Middle East" where terrorist groups have no influence.
According to Assad, Israel was planning to attack Lebanon even before the July 12 Hizb'Allah kidnapping raid on an IDF border patrol and subsequent rocket barrages on Israeli cities. "The war in Lebanon was prepared in advance and the soldiers' abduction was only an excuse â€¦ the current battles proved that we were right and that resistance is the only way," he said.
Meanwhile, Hizb'Allah leader Hassan Nasrallah praised Hizb'Allah's "victory against the Zionist enemy" during a speech in the Iranian capital of Tehran on Monday.
In his message, Nasrallah insisted that Israel instigated the fighting and that - rather than a counter-offensive to Hizb'Allah attacks - was a war on the Lebanese population. "The Zionist enemy inflicted heaviest possible losses against the Lebanese nation, and this proves the depth of their wrath against our people," he said.
He added, "The enemy destroyed 15,000 residential houses in southern Lebanon, the Bekaa Valley and Beirut, and that was in fact the Zionists' way of punishing the Lebanese nation for their resistance against that regime's army."
Nasrallah went on to promise financial aid to those residents of southern Lebanon that had been displaced by the fighting, calling on engineers, architects, and contractors to volunteer their services in the rebuilding of damaged cities.
This Godless peace which is the product of liberal humanism has the whole world stunned. The Islamic barbarians are shouting to any who will listen that they have won a great victory over the Jews. They won a great victory over the Christians. They attribute the victory to Allah who was able to overcome the invincible Israeli Jewish Army sustained by the all powerful Christian United States. Islam now has no fear of the God of the Bible whatsoever. They are now ready for judgment! It is not going to happen tomorrow, but now the stage is set for Ezekiel 39. The phony peace that Ezekiel said would mesmerize the secular Jewish majority is about to be implemented.
11 And 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,
12 To 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.
I suspect Olmert will remove the separation wall very soon as his part of this phony peace. I would not be surprised if the Arab Palestinians calm down for the moment to grab everything the secular Jews are ready to give them. The Islamic invasion of Israel which precedes Ezekiel 39 is premised on such a phony peace plan being in operation. When bloodthirsty Islam comes to take a prey of the Jews (to kill them, to hunt them down every one) there is a peace that has caused the Jews to be at rest. God warns the Jews to be prepared, but they ignore His warning in the Bible. Now it is time to look at the rest of the story when Islam decides to make sport of the Jews making them Islamic prey.
7 Be thou prepared , and prepare for thyself, thou, and all thy company that are assembled unto thee, and be thou a guard unto them.
8 After many days thou shalt be visited: in the latter years thou shalt come into the land that is brought back from the sword, and is gathered out of many people, against the mountains of Israel, which have been always waste: but it is brought forth out of the nations, and they shall dwell safely all of them.
9 Thou shalt ascend and come like a storm, thou shalt be like a cloud to cover the land, thou, and all thy bands, and many people with thee.
10 Thus 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:
11 And 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,
12 To 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.
God is very clear that He draws a proud Islamic horde that has no fear of Him onto the mountains and fields of the Holy Land for a quick and decisive judgment. In one moment (Ezekiel 39) in the Land of Israel God reveals His mighty wrath with such awesome power that Islam never recovers. It ends as an influential religion relegated to the dung heap of history with all the other false religions that went before. The Bible says that the heathen from all over the world will know the power of this God of the Bible who is now in the process of bringing a new dispensation to the planet. It will come to the Holy Land, at Jerusalem, and on the Temple Mount where a religious Jewish remnant practicing perfect Biblical Judaism honoring Christ as their Messiah will have built Ezekiel's Temple. Their perfect King will come again to rule this perfect Kingdom coming on the destruction of Islam first, and then all other false religions over the Seven Years of Great Tribulation. Last will be the religion of the antichrist that will pick up when all the other false religions fail. Most men will chose the antichrist over the soon coming Jewish King.
Friend, I pray you are ready. I pray you will have come to Christ before this antichrist can mesmerize you with his whiles. The Bible says - all - will worship him who's names are not written down in the Lamb's book of life. The only one who can write your name down is the Lamb Himself. The LORD Jesus Christ sacrificed Himself so He could wash away the sins of those who come to Him for salvation. Friend, won't you come to the Lamb of God?
29 The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold the Lamb of God , which taketh away the sin of the world.

Threatens to Destroy Soldiers´ Homes
16:56 Aug 17, '06 / 23 Av 5766
by Hillel Fendel
The bureaucracy rolls on. With its residents still in Lebanon under emergency call-up orders, the Yesha town of MaalehRehavam learned that officials were headed to post eviction orders on its doors.
Families in Maaleh Rehavam - a small outpost community in eastern Gush Etzion - were surprised to note this morning that Civil Administration officials were on their way to post eviction orders on their homes. Of the 30 residents, including five families, five are in Lebanon after having been called up on emergency basis this past month, and two others are in the standing army.
Some town officials believe that the army wished to take advantage of the situation in which a quarter of the men were away to give out the notices. "It is shocking to think," town secretary Moriah Halamish said, "that with war happening on two fronts, north and south, the defense establishment finds the time to give out these orders. The State is taking advantage of the fact that our men were drafted to war in order to fulfill this new expulsion decree. Good citizens go off to fight with emergency orders, and are then forced to return to receive a slap in the face in the form of an eviction notice on their doors."
Others feel the truth is more mundane: "The bureaucracy has a calendar and a schedule, and no one thinks whether now is a good time to do it or not; it just gets done." So says Nadia Matar, co-chairperson of Women in Green, a grassroots Land of Israel organization. "The previous orders expired," she said, "and they have to be renewed, and that's it. There's no consideration as to whether right now, with people still on the front lines in Lebanon, it might not be a good idea to go ahead with destroying Jewish homes."
Postponed for a Week
In the event, Maaleh Rehavam's secretary Moriah told Arutz-7 this afternoon, "We were informed later today that the 'mission' has been put on hold. I believe this is largely due to the press coverage by Arutz-7... Zambish [Yesha leader Ze'ev Chever] called the Civil Administration, and they said they're sorry, they didn't realize, and they will postpone giving us our eviction notices for another week. But we will not rest; there is no reason for our homes to be destroyed."
Maaleh Rehavam is a mixed religious-secular community, home to five families and several singles. Residents lived in caravans for the first two years after its founding, and three permanent homes have been built in recent years. It overlooks the Judean Desert, the Herodion, Tekoa and Nokdim, home to MK Avigdor Lieberman (Yisrael Beiteinu). The community is an eight-minute drive from Jerusalem, but the residents must now drive almost an hour due to the government’s refusal to open a newly paved road.
The community is not illegal - but neither has it been officially approved, and for this reason, the government says it plans to destroy it, in keeping with its promise to the US to raze all "unauthorized" outposts. The radical left-wing Peace Now organization has filed a court suit, demanding to know why the government has not yet implemented the demolition orders it issued regarding Maaleh Rehavam and other small communities throughout Judea, Samaria and Gaza.

Demanding an Apology
The people of Maaleh Rehavam recently demanded an apology from the Maariv newspaper for writing that their community is illegally located on private Arab property. "This article presents us as land thieves," a letter from the town's secretary states. "If a serious investigation had been done, as could be expected from a newspaper of your level, you would have found that the neighborhood is [a part of] the town of Nokdim, is totally located on state lands, and that the residents were even allocated land for planting and grazing. The neighborhood is in the process of being approved."
This was not the only time the Maariv newspaper has exposed itself to criticism of being anti-Yesha. Earlier this week it publicized a listing of cities and towns in which the soldiers killed in Lebanon had lived. However, though the chart listed the names of dozens of towns and cities, it concealed the disproportionately large role played by the towns of Judea, Samaria and Gaza by hiding them in the "others" column.
Ronen Tzafrir, of the non-religious pro-Land of Israel Nahalal Forum, had strong criticism of Maariv. "When there is something positive to say about this fantastic public," he said, "which educates towards heroism, sacrifice and love of land, suddenly Maariv forgets the word 'settlements.'"
Tzafrir called upon the public to boycott Maariv.
In fact, nearly 10% of the 117 soldiers who were killed in the five weeks of fighting in Lebanon were from towns in Yesha (Judea and Samaria) - almost twice as much as their proportionate numbers in the population. Their names:
Lt.-Col. Ro'i Klein, 31, of Eli
Lt. Amichai Merchavia, 24, Eli
Sgt. Gilad Zissman, 26, from Eli
Staff-Sgt. Yehuda Greenfeld, 27, from Maaleh Michmas
St.-Sgt. Philip Mosko, 21, Maaleh Adumim
Sgt. Yigal Nissan, 19, Maaleh Adumim
Sgt. Bnayah Rein, 27, Karnei Shomron
Sgt. Amasa Meshulami, 20, Ofrah
Corp. Ohad Kleisner, 20, of Beit Horon
St.-Sgt. Yotam Gilboa, 21, of Kibbutz Maoz Chaim in the Jordan Valley
Sgt. Gai Hason, 24, Naamah
The total population in Judea and Samaria grew by some 3% in the first half of 2006, according to Interior Ministry statistics. At the end of June, the total population in these areas stood at 260,932 people, a growth of nearly 7,200 over the previous six months. The Yesha Council welcomed the news, stating that the extra thousands of new citizens, even as the government continued to talk about uprooting them, showed the strength of the Judea and Samaria settlement enterprise.
It will be another government that will thresh the enemies of Israel. The bleeding heart liberals want only a lip service peace that does not match the reality of the day. The Olmert peace plan to keep alive the blasphemous Road Map has a calendar and a schedule that must be maintained. This liberal secular Jewish politician has learned nothing over the last month. His scheduled withdrawal from Judah and Samaria goes ahead with dogged precision. The resolve that never materialized throughout his "in and out" battle with Hizb'allah now comes to light in the persecution of his conservative political enemies. I would like to point out that it is the pressure from the Evangelical White House that is demanding an Islamic Palestinian State be established in Judah and Samaria. The Bible has been abandoned by both Christian and secular Jew. They care nothing about promises made by the God of the Bible that He will establish His Kingdom in the Holy Land, at Jerusalem, and on the Temple Mount. The very land that the Olmert and Bush administrations are hell bent on giving away to the Islamic heathen! The greatest deterrent to God fulfilling His promises is not really Islam because they can be wiped away like a fly. The problem is the phony Jewish and Christian religionists who are blind to what the Bible teaches about the coming Kingdom. Both give a politically correct lip service to God, but their hearts must be far removed measured by their actions.
7 And I will make her that halted a remnant, and her that was cast far off a strong nation: and the LORD shall reign over them in mount Zion from henceforth, even for ever.
8 And thou, O tower of the flock, the strong hold of the daughter of Zion , unto thee shall it come, even the first dominion; the kingdom shall come to the daughter of Jerusalem.
9 Now why dost thou cry out aloud? is there no king in thee? is thy counsellor perished? for pangs have taken thee as a woman in travail.
After Olmert evicts all the 260,932 loyal Independent Fundamental Jewish Settlers to the last woman and child from Judah and Samaria including most of Jerusalem it will be but a little step to include the sovereignty of Mount Zion. It will all be given to the heathen barbarians. These holy places given to the worst culture living on the planet. Imagine the secular Jews joining with the Evangelical Christians to give Mt. Zion to the heathen right at the time when the LORD has brought about this Third miraculous Exodus of Jews back to the Holy Land. Folks, I'm going to tell you true the christ of the Bush administration is not the Christ of the Bible that I know! I have no intension of ever compromising my Christ to be politically correct. It is only a remnant that will be raptured from the great apostate whore of today's Christianity, and it will only be a remnant of Jews who will individually come to this same Christ of the raptured accepting Him as their Messiah. I already know the initial numbers! Two from Revelations 11, and 144,000 from Revelations 7 and 14.
14:1 And 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.
Folks, Mount Sion is about to be turned over to the barbarians as part of the coming peace plan devised by the liberal secular Jews and Evangelical Christians of the Bush Administration. Olmert has a 4 year timetable to accomplish what the Bush Administration is pressuring him to do! I have known from the beginning that the peace is when my heart should be troubled when it comes to the Holy Land. Wars and rumors of wars are normal. God says the Jews must suffer like a woman in travail before their King will come. The hardened hearts must be softened through tribulation. None are in travail these days as are the Independent Fundamental Jewish Settlers. They are a mixed bag of religious and secular Jews who right now only understand that God said it was their mission to occupy the Promised Land that He has prepared for them. Olmert sees all the gains of the 1967 War as a curse to be given away as soon as possible. God has turned those lands into a curse for the liberal secularized Jews. Those same lands are a blessing to the Independent Fundamental Jewish Settlers who have moved there. They have faced off the barbarians, and proven the barbarians are all talk when confronted one on one. These settlers moved right into the heart of Arab Palestinian lands, and proved they can live in peace. But, they must carry a big stick! They have been blessed by experiencing the desert bloom under their hands. It is only Jewish sweat when applied to the Promised Land that makes it flower. The interloping Arabs have only found it a fruitless desert place that they mostly moved through until the Jewish State started to provide steady employment for these wandering bands.
Friend, it is not easy to stand with the Christ of the Bible. He is above politics. He is absolutely holy and righteous, and will stand alone if no one will come. He tells us again and again that there will always be a remnant. A remnant that will put holiness and righteousness above everything. Friend, it is this remnant that will have the Father's name written on their foreheads. Won't you join the remnant of this Church Age dispensation, and come to Christ with all your heart, soul, and might. Obey God and receive Christ right now.

Israel's U.N. Envoy: UNIFIL Countries Must Recognize Israel
17:11 Aug 18, '06 / 24 Av 5766
(IsraelNN.com) Countries that send troops to be a part of the United Nations international force in Lebanon (UNIFIL) must recognize the Jewish state, Israel's United Nations Ambassador Danny Gillerman told the British Broadcasting Corp. (BBC) Friday.
He said it is not comprehensible to allow the participation of countries such as Malaysia and Indonesia, who have offered to send 1,000 soldiers each and who do not have diplomatic ties with Israel. Last week, Malaysia encouraged other countries to cut off relations with Jerusalem.
UN struggles to build credible
force in Lebanon
No intent, ability to disarm Hizb'Allah
The United Nations received offers of just 3,500 troops for its "robust" UN peacekeeping force in Lebanon on Thursday, though it is still unclear whether the soldiers will even be available for immediate deployment. France, who was expected to dominate the donations of ground forces, offered a mere 200 new troops in addition to 200 French soldiers already on the ground in south Lebanon.
In his opening speech to a meeting of 50 potential contributing countries, UN Deputy Secretary-General Mark Malloch Brown warned, "every moment we delay is a moment of risk that the fighting could re-erupt." There are currently only 2,000 UN troops in southern Lebanon out of 15,000 that were guaranteed by the UN ceasefire resolution passed on Sunday.
Israeli diplomatic officials expressed their deep disappointment on Thursday with the international community's failure to come up with enough troops to fill the 15,000-member international force in Lebanon. The defense establishment has warned several times that if the Lebanese army and the UN will take no steps to disarm Hizb'Allah the IDF will be forced resume operations against the terror group.
Meanwhile, US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice sided with UN Secretary General Kofi Annan and denied that the UN forces were responsible for disarming Hizb'Allah. Stating that it was the Lebanese army's responsibility, Rice told USA Today, "I don't think there is an expectation that this [UN] force is going to physically disarm Hizb'Allah. I think it's a little bit of a misreading about how you disarm a militia. You have to have a plan, first of all, for the disarmament of the militia, and then the hope is that some people lay down their arms voluntarily."
Aside from Hizb'Allah's daily statements of refusal to disarm voluntarily, the Lebanese government and military commanders have reiterated that the Lebanese army will by deployed "alongside the resistance [Hizb'Allah]" - more commonly referred to as "our brothers". It is estimated that as much as 60% of the Lebanese military are Shi'ite Muslims and supporters of the paramilitary terror group, with their chief of staff being a highly vocal supporter of Syrian President Bashar Assad's terror regime.
My French toast will never taste the same. They promise 2000 soldiers to make them appear as a leader in the ceasefire talks, and when it comes time to put them in harms way they renege offering only 200 engineers who are not combat equipped. The UN has proved its impotency once again in dealing with terrorism. It must be clear by now that Israel is never going to solve their problems with Hizb'alla, and Hamas through the UN. Israel is alone! They must stand or fall on their own. They must defy the world for the sake of their own survival. This world is no friend to their God. It is God's plan to cause Israel to see how foolish it is to depend on the gentiles to provide them with security. Israel has only one friend in the entire world, and that is the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. All other places where they may go will prove futile. God is driving the Jews to Himself. They will find only futility if they trust the liberal politicians who see the Promised Land as cursed, and an object to get rid of as quickly as possible, The Jews will find only futility in the religious Jews who have corrupted Biblical Judaism into a simplistic manmade 613 rules that if kept will open the door to redemption and life eternal. They have even corrupted their own rules by giving a pass to Jews who just try.
Folks, trying is not enough with God. What He wants is your heart! He wants you to know you can't keep His righteous standards. His holiness is beyond the grasp of men. It is blasphemous for any man to ever claim he is holy as God is holy through his own efforts. Men can be made holy. It is an absolute miracle, and only the power of God can perform it. The Bible says only the greatest of all miracles can make a lost sinner saved from sin. Only the sacrificial blood of the LORD Jesus Christ on Calvary has the power to wash away sin. The whole world is being confronted with the return of the LORD Jesus Christ. He is coming back to the Holy Land, Jerusalem, and the Temple Mount. Every single man, woman, and child is being confronted with this fact. The Church Age is about to end with the calling up of all the "born again" Christians. God is going to lift the blindness that prevents a remnant of Jews living in the Holy Land from coming to Christ their Messiah. Biblical Judaism as God always expected the Jews to practice will be established. Ezekiel's Holy Jewish Temple will be built on the Temple Mount. Islam will be destroyed as revealed in Ezekiel 39, and they will be relegated to the dung heap of all false religions of the past. Temple sacrifice will be revived, but this time in remembrance of Calvary. The Book of Leviticus will find the full meaning for which God wrote it in Christ and Calvary. The Old Testament and New Testament will be joined in a new way in a new dispensation that will not need a Newer Testament to be written. The Kingdom Age will come to the Holy Land, Jerusalem, and the Temple Mount.
The Bible says God is going to change the hearts of many Jews. The times of the gentiles will end with Armageddon. Only perfect Judaism will enter into the coming Kingdom. I'm sure there will be gentile proselytes, but they will have converted to perfect Judaism before the great day of the LORD.
Friend, there is no perfect Judaism yet! Perfect Judaism is built around the perfect King who will rule the Kingdom of Heaven. There is only one avenue open to you today, and that is to come to the LORD Jesus Christ with all your heart, soul, and might. It is total and absolute surrender holding back nothing. It is pleading for your rotten soul on the basis of His precious blood.
1 Timothy 1:15-17
15 This is a faithful saying, and worthy of all acceptation, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners ; of whom I am chief.
16 Howbeit for this cause I obtained mercy, that in me first Jesus Christ might shew forth all longsuffering, for a pattern to them which should hereafter believe on him to life everlasting.
17 Now unto the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only wise God, be honour and glory for ever and ever. Amen.

Reservists to Halutz: 'You Kept Us From Winning'
16:19 Aug 21, '06 / 27 Av 5766
by Tzvi Ben Gedalyahu
Hundreds of reservists told Chief of Staff Dan Halutz Sunday of colossal failures in planning, intelligence, equipment and rescue efforts. A senior officer said, "We were guilty of arrogance."
The reservists who met with Lt.-Gen. Halutz complained that the war resulted in a crisis of faith in commanding officers. They spoke of lack of food and water, poor equipment and lack of responsibility. "You prevented us from winning," they told him.
The Chief of Staff and senior commanders have been praising the armed forces for operations in the war, in which nearly 120 soldiers were killed and hundreds were wounded.
One officer said last week that food and water supplies were adequate and were lacking only in rare instances or when fighting prevented supply trucks from arriving.
But reservists in the field told a different story to Lt.-Gen. Halutz. One soldier said they were without food for more than 24 hours. Another said his company had to wait until 6 p.m. Saturday evening to eat their first Sabbath meal. Others said they drank from local wells, and some soldiers admitted they had to break into local Lebanese stores in order to overcome hunger between battles with Hizbullah terrorist guerillas.
They spoke of having to take wounded comrades on stretchers for more than a mile while being without water.
Reservists told the Chief of Staff that decisions by commanders were not based on professional calculations. More reservists are to meet with senior officers on Monday.
The most damning evidence came from outgoing infantry and paratrooper commander Brig.-Gen. Yossi Heiman, who surprised commanders at a changing-of-the-guard ceremony Monday with criticism of top officers - including himself.
"We were guilty of the sin of arrogance," Heiman said at the ceremony at the Kiryat Malachi base south of Tel Aviv, where he was replaced by Brig.-Gen. Yossi Bachar. "Everyone tells about his mission, but not what he did not do and where he went wrong."
He praised the "heroic fighting by the soldiers and commanders, especially at the company and battalion level, [but] we all feel a certain sense of failure and missed opportunity." He previously has commented, "What is clear is that the reserve units have not been trained enough."
Heiman added, "I feel the weighty responsibility on my shoulders. I failed to prepare the infantry better for war. I did not manage to prevent burnout among professional companies and platoons. I feel no relief whatsoever in the face of the array of the well-known excuses, even though they are correct - the various budget cuts [etc.] ... At this time, it is not easy being part of the system. Part of the public, and perhaps also parts of the leadership, is expressing lack of faith in us."
He complained that there has been a basic "failure in understanding the past six years" after former Prime Minister Ehud Barak ordered the hasty retreat of the IDF from Lebanon, leaving Hizbullah terrorists a free hand to build underground bunkers and tunnels and to stockpile modern weapons.
Brig.-Gen. Heiman's comments came at the worst possible time for the government, which is facing calls for its resignation - or at least for a public inquiry into the war and how it was handled.
Lt.-Gen. Halutz was appointed Chief of Staff last year by former Prime Minister Ariel Sharon, who took the unprecedented step of refusing to extend the term of office of Lt.-Gen. Moshe (Bogie) Yaalon. Yaalon had questioned the plan to destroy Jewish communities in the Gaza and northern Samaria regions, saying it would provide a "supportive wind to terrorism."
Halutz replaced him a month before the expulsion. He managed to survive brief but sharp criticism last week after it was revealed that he spoke to his banker concerning the sale of investments three hours after Hizbullah terrorists kidnapped two soldiers.
A former Air Force commander, Halutz said at the beginning of his term that he envisioned a new technological army that would reduce the need for foot soldiers. He in fact relied on air power in the first few days of the retaliation against Hizbullah terrorist attacks on northern Israel and the kidnapping of two IDF soldiers.
A report in The New York Times on Sunday quoted an unnamed senior commander as saying that the army erred in thinking it could force a ceasefire after two weeks of aerial attacks.
As the war lingered longer than anyone expected, failures in the field became evident.
The attack on a naval ship, which killed four sailors, stunned intelligence officers who were not aware that Hizbullah had the Iranian C-0802 missile.
On the ground, there was such a shortage of equipment that Bank HaPoalim executives donated 400 flak jackets costing more than $80,000. Both enlisted and reserve soldiers had to ask friends and employers to send them army shoes and towels.
Lacking food, soldiers received food from corporations, who also filled the gaping hole left by the government in aiding northern Israel residents, who were under siege from rocket attacks.
Shortly after the war began, one soldier told an Israeli newspaper, "For two days, we barely made any progress. The soldiers simply do not really know what the mission is."
Another soldier stated, "During all the years that I served in the reserves, we had the best equipment, but now that we have reached the moment of truth the equipment has vanished. Many soldiers don't have short-barreled M-16 rifles, communications equipment or even tourniquets."
Another reservist revealed that he had to give his weapon to others who replaced him, and another lamented, "We are supposed to enter the fray against guerilla fighters who have been training for six years."
Hizbullah terrorist leaders have spread the word of the IDF failures. A report this week in the Lebanon Daily Star quoted Hizbullah terrorist guerillas as describing how they killed soldiers at the battle in Bint Jbel.
Army soldiers met no resistance in the city, a Hizbullah stronghold, and then rolled in several tanks. Hizbullah terrorists then popped out of bunkers and surrounding areas and fired anti-rockets and missiles on the IDF. "They fell into our trap," one guerilla said.
On the other hand, Israel pulled off some of its own surprises as well. In one, the IDF outflanked Hizbullah from the north, and was able to kill several terrorists, destroy a 24-cannon Katyusha launcher and capture much weaponry. The ground forces suffered no casualties, though a helicopter was shot down just after unloading dozens of soldiers, causing five casualties
Folks, when God is in absolute control of history the same lessons are taught again and again. Mankind has a tendency to think their generation is always much smarter then that of their forefathers. These know it all generations are relegated to repeating history lessons from the past. God must take these puffed up generations to the wood shed, and that is just what He did to the Jews of Israel in this most recent battle. Folks, God is not pleased with the liberal Jewish politicians who are running the country. The accused thing that marks their guilt is the attempt to give away parts of the Holy Land to the heathen Islamic barbarians. Most offensive is Olmert's desire to give away all of Judea including most of Jerusalem, and tied to this giveaway will be Jewish sovereignty over the Temple Mount. Olmert, and his cohorts have no feelings toward the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob other then lip service. That is why Jerusalem and the Temple Mount mean nothing to them. It is all politics, and what will serve their liberal political interests. The Jews who are persecuted, and hated the most by these present foolish shepherds representing the majority of Jews living in the Holy Land are the conservative Independent Fundamental Jewish Settlers. Watch Olmert show no mercy toward them in the coming days.
Olmert has just fought the battle for Ai - once again! This present battle just can't be spun into an Israeli victory. It is clearly modern Israel's first defeat. The liberal secular Jews not only gave away Gaza, but with the Gaza withdrawal was included the city of Jericho which was given to the Islamic barbarians. Now, the first battle after that give away has turned into the same kind of defeat as those Jews of the First Exodus experienced at Ai. These Jews of the Third Exodus are being driven by God to find better leadership, or they just might lose everything. Israel can't survive without God! Israel needs a Joshua to give them spiritual leadership as they had for both the First and Second Exoduses. God provided those Jews of the Second Exodus with their Joshua. He was of the priestly class, and with his governor companion Zerubbabel they built the Second Temple on the Temple Mount.
3:1 And when the seventh month was come, and the children of Israel were in the cities, the people gathered themselves together as one man to Jerusalem.
2 Then stood up Jeshua the son of Jozadak, and his brethren the priests, and Zerubbabel the son of Shealtiel, and his brethren, and builded the altar of the God of Israel, to offer burnt offerings thereon, as it is written in the law of Moses the man of God.
3 And they set the altar upon his bases; for fear was upon them because of the people of those countries: and they offered burnt offerings thereon unto the LORD, even burnt offerings morning and evening.
4 They kept also the feast of tabernacles, as it is written, and offered the daily burnt offerings by number, according to the custom, as the duty of every day required;
5 And afterward offered the continual burnt offering, both of the new moons, and of all the set feasts of the LORD that were consecrated, and of every one that willingly offered a freewill offering unto the LORD.
Folks, I tell you true. The same conditions that drove the Jews of the Second Exodus back to obedient sacrificial worship on the Temple Mount are driving the Jews of this Third Exodus to do likewise. God is drawing the Jews back to Himself. It is the Jews who will have to adjust to the literal obedience of God as He demands in the Old Testament book of Leviticus. Soon a remnant of Jews are going to understand that all sacrifice on the Temple Mount is to be in remembrance of Calvary. A new Biblical Judaism based literally on the Bible will blossom in the Holy Land. A Judaism with Christ's finished work at the center of all sacrifices. Ezekiel's Temple will be built. A Temple with an altar and a throne. An altar for blood sacrifice! A throne for the soon coming LORD Jesus Christ! The prophet Zechariah was a contemporary with Joshua and Zerubbabel, and he was given a vision of two olive trees. All commentators agree the two olive trees of Zechariah's vision are none other then Joshua and Zerubbabel of the Second Exodus.
2 And said unto me, What seest thou? And I said, I have looked, and behold a candlestick all of gold, with a bowl upon the top of it, and his seven lamps thereon, and seven pipes to the seven lamps, which are upon the top thereof:
3 And two olive trees by it, one upon the right side of the bowl, and the other upon the left side thereof.
4 So I answered and spake to the angel that talked with me, saying, What are these, my lord?
Another prophet is the only other Biblical writer who mentions another two olive trees of a future day. The Second Temple was destroyed by the Romans, and the Apostle and prophet John was given a similar vision as was Zechariah about a future Temple fixed by the God who has absolute control over human history. John also saw a Joshua, and Zerubbabel who will lead a future generation of Jews of a Third Exodus into building a Third Holy Jewish Temple on the Temple Mount.
11:1 And there was given me a reed like unto a rod: and the angel stood, saying, Rise, and measure the temple of God, and the altar, and them that worship therein.
2 But the court which is without the temple leave out, and measure it not; for it is given unto the Gentiles: and the holy city shall they tread under foot forty and two months.
3 And I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days, clothed in sackcloth.
4 These are the two olive trees , and the two candlesticks standing before the God of the earth.
5 And if any man will hurt them, fire proceedeth out of their mouth, and devoureth their enemies: and if any man will hurt them, he must in this manner be killed.
Friend, if you can understand what the Bible is saying you will know how close we are to dispensational change. The Church Age is about to end, and the Kingdom Age is about to begin. A Kingdom ruled over by a perfect King! A perfect Kingdom based on Biblical holiness and righteousness ruled over by the King of kings, and LORD of Lords. Oh friend, Christ is the center of it all. His sacrifice on Calvary provided the perfect blood by which sin can be washed away in the eyes of a perfect God. Won't you come to this Christ, and be saved? He is coming again to the Holy Land, Jerusalem, and the Temple Mount! No power on earth can stop Him!

Families from North Receive Compensation for Bomb Damage
20:27 Aug 23, '06 / 29 Av 5766
IsraelNN.com) At a Cabinet meeting today, the director of the Tax Authority Jackie Matza stated that due to the situation in the north, 14,000 claims have been made regarding property damage, and it is estimated that this total will reach around 18,000.
Only a week after the cease-fire, 2,000 families have already received compensation. Matza added that if a family presents a certificate of assessment, they will receive their compensation within a few days. A family whose home was damaged can decide whether they want to do their own repairs or use one of four contractors selected by the Finance Ministry
West Bank pullout takes a backseat
The Israeli government's plan to dismantle Jewish settlements and withdraw from about 90% of the West Bank - unilaterally reshaping the country's borders - is being temporarily shelved because of the war in Lebanon. Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert told his ministers last weekend that the government must spend its money and efforts in northern Israel to repair the damage from the war with Hizb'Allah and strengthen the area in case fighting breaks out again. Scrapping the withdrawal plan has raised a flurry of mixed reactions from both sides of the long-running controversy. Read More from The Washington Post.
Iranian Official Promises "Surprise" in Coming Days
06:06 Aug 24, '06 / 30 Av 5766
(IsraelNN.com) A senior Iranian official said Wednesday that in the next few days, a "surprise" was expected regarding Iran's nuclear program, according to Al-Jazeera.
The statement comes at a time when Iran has rejected United Nations calls to halt its production of enriched uranium.
What about the homes in the South? The North is where the liberals live in the large cities. The South is where the Independent Fundamental Jewish Settlers live in multiple village outposts. The South has been under attack by rockets from the Gaza since the Arab uprising started years ago under Arafat. The government response was that they should move out of Judah and Samaria if they don't like the damage being done to their homes. Settlers also live in the North along the boarders, and I would be surprised if they are included among those compensated in just a few days. There is a lot more politics going on then most people realize. This is not the kind of Holy Land the God of the Bible ever envisioned. The Olmert withdrawal from Judah including most of Jerusalem, and the relinquishing of Jewish sovereignty over the Temple Mount was more then God was willing to put up with. Even Olmert himself admits his plans have been put on hold because of what God did over this last month in the Holy Land. It is always best to obey God at the get go then to have to be chastened, and turned the hard way. Sharon was stopped, and now Olmert was stopped. The Holy Land, Jerusalem, and the Temple Mount sum up the focus of God as it relates to human history for today. Dispensational change is where God is going. The Bible is clear that the Kingdom Age is next. The Kingdom is not going to be centered in New York, or Rome. It is going to be centered in the Holy Land, at Jerusalem, and on the Temple Mount! The Koran says a great Islamic Messiah is going to lead Islam in a blood-lust battle that will destroy the Jews first, and then the rest of the infidels. The Bible says Islam is going to go down in Ezekiel 39. Persia which is modern day Iraq is mentioned prominently as the Eastern prong of an Islamic 3 pronged invasion of the Holy Land. The God of the Bible has a "Great Surprise" for the Iranians, and for the entire Islamic religion. The Holy Land, Jerusalem. and the Temple Mount belong to the God of the Bible, and His Biblical plans for them will not be stopped!
Islam has made this a blood feud. God has brought the Jews back to the Holy Land in the Third Miraculous Exodus with the sole purpose of bringing about dispensational change just as He said He would. The world is not ready, but then it was never ready for Jesus when He came the first time. Why should it be ready when He comes again? The world never was, or ever will be ready for dispensatio0nal change. There is no great flow into Fundamental Bible Churches who predicted these very things taking place in the Holy Land today. The truth is Fundamentalism's glory is of the past. The few practitioners of Fundamentalism left such as John MacArthur, maybe one of the better know, is banned from most Christian media because part of his fundamental stand is to proclaim this modern Charismatic movement is not Biblical. This puts him, and the rest of us outside mainstream Christianity. We are not welcome. We don't fit into this modern secularizing of Christianity movement now taking place. They have kicked us out because we won't compromise. It is in this environment that we find ourselves approaching dispensational change. The rapture is the event that will end the Church Age. The calling up of all the elect "born again" Christians out of the Great Apostate Whore of today's Christianity will then free God to put His entire focus on the Holy Land, Jerusalem, and the Temple Mount.
37 But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
38 For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark,
39 And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
40 Then shall two be in the field; the one shall be taken , and the other left.
41 Two women shall be grinding at the mill; the one shall be taken, and the other left.
42 Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come.
43 But know this, that if the goodman of the house had known in what watch the thief would come, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken up.
44 Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh.
Friend, are you going to be one of those left behind? One standing uncompromisingly on The Word of God will undoubtedly be taken up to glory out of this sin filled world where he no longer fits. What about the guy who never makes waves? You know them. Religion and politics they never want to speak, or hear mentioned. Doctrine is a dirty word to them for it is sure to strike up controversy. What are their chances of being left behind? The coming of Christ is the coming of judgment. Judgment on Christianity. Judgment on Islam. Judgment on Judaism. Only a remnant who come uncompromising to Christ with all their hearts, souls, and might will survive. The masses are predicted in the Bible to be judged. Friend, why not come to Christ right now? He wants to save you from your sin. He will if you let Him. His grace and mercy are about to overwhelm this planet, but first there is judgment. Remember in such an hour as ye think not the son of man cometh.

"Ahmadinejad would sacrifice half
of Iran to wipe out Israel"
Israel fears that US wonâ€™t stop Tehranâ€™s nuclear program
Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, if he ever became the supreme decision maker in his country, would "sacrifice half of Iran for the sake of eliminating Israel," Giora Eiland, Israel's former national security adviser, said Thursday.
The Jerusalem Post reports that presently, the ultimate decision-maker in Iran is Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, 67, but "if Ahmadinejad were to succeed him - and he has a reasonable chance of doing so - then we'd be in a highly dangerous situation."
The Iranian president "has a religious conviction that Israel's demise is essential to the restoration of Muslim glory, that the Zionist thorn in the heart of the Islamic nations must be removed, and he will pay almost any price to right the perceived historic wrong. If he becomes the supreme leader and has a nuclear capability, that's a real threat."
Meanwhile, the growing consensus within the Israeli defense establishment is that the US would not attack Iran, and Israel will have to act independently to stop the Islamic republic from obtaining nuclear weapons. Sources within the defense establishment told The Post on Thursday that the Bush administration does not currently have enough support in the US to launch a strike against Iranâ€™s nuclear sites.
God is bringing the Jews of the Holy Land to the reality that they stand alone in this generation at a time of monumental danger to the Jewish State. The world idly stands by waiting for the Islamic barbarians to develop an atomic bomb designed specifically to destroy the tiny nation of Israel. The Jews just bought two more submarines from Germany to increase their second strike capabilities. The Islamic barbarians don't care! Ahmadinejad may have said he is willing to sacrifice half of Iran, but the truth is he is willing to sacrifice all of Iran. No price is too great in order to wipe Israel off the map. His hate is that great! His Islamic pride in martyrdom is that big. Hitler was willing to take all of Germany with him when he died, and now we see another Hitler in the making. News commentators are already talking about history repeating itself once again. The Bible commentators who are far more important already know history is going to be repeated. The holocaust was only child's play compared to what the antichrist is going to do to the Jews when he comes to power.
12:1 And at that time shall Michael stand up, the great prince which standeth for the children of thy people: and there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation even to that same time: and at that time thy people shall be delivered, every one that shall be found written in the book.
The God of the Bible promises deliverance! What joy to know when things are at their worst God is still in control. What joy to know this Third miraculous Exodus came out of the Hitler holocaust, and the Kingdom of Heaven will be coming out of the next and last holocaust yet to come. God is not going to let the Hitler's, and the Ahmadinejad's take His creation into oblivion. These fellows could never come to power if there was not great support for their anti-Semitic theme. The overt anti-Semitism of the Islamic barbarians can't be denied, but the covert hidden anti-Semitism of the Europeans is much more subtle. I'm convinced after the rapture that the Great Apostate Whore of America's Christianity will step in to take the lead in the same anti-Semitism now alive in Europe. American Christianity will be the back bone by which the antichrist will rise to take economic control of the planet. His subtle anti-Semitism will be just what Apostate Christianity will be ready to support. Only in Israel will the real Christ of the Bible be found in those days. A remnant of Jews will be building Ezekiel's Holy Temple on the Temple Mount, and the antichrist will subtly allow them to do so for the first half of the Great Tribulation. He will even have signed a peace treaty to allow the Jews a free hand in their quest. According to the Bible Ahmadinejad never accomplishes his vision of nuking Tel Aviv, Hifa, and the other centers of the Israeli occupied Holy Land. The Jews are not wiped off the map. The Jews are delivered!
Ahmadinejad will find his end in Ezekiel 39. The event that allows the Jews to build Ezekiel's Holy Temple as described in Ezekiel 40 - 48. Almadinejad fits the profile of the leader of Iran at the time when Islam invades Israel. Persia, Iran, will be the Eastern prong of a three pronged Islamic barbaric invasion of Israel. A turkey shoot with Jews as the prey. A barbaric invasion aimed at spoiling, raping, and plundering the Jews occupying the Holy Land, but God delivers the Jews once again.
10 Thus 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:
11 And 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,
12 To 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, Ezekiel 39 that follows the Islamic invasion of Ezekiel 38 is the end of Islam as an influence in the Holy Land. Ezekiel 39 will free the Jews to build Ezekiel's Holy Jewish Temple. Ezekiel 39 puts a temporary halt to the antichrist's anti-Semitic desires. A 3-1/2 year halt. The Jews will cleanse the Temple Mount of all corruption before they build their Holy Temple. A Temple with a throne for their coming again Messiah and King. Apostate Christianity will not recognize this Jewish Christ as the same as their gentile christ. They will give all their support to the antichrist who will blasphemously sit on the throne of Ezekiel's Temple 3-1/2 years into the Great Tribulation. The time is called Jacob's Trouble, but God again delivers the Jews.
Friend, have you been delivered as the God of the Bible promises a future deliverance for the Jews? Salvation is found in only one person, and that person is the LORD Jesus Christ. Have you come to Him with all your heart, soul, and might? There is no other way to come. It must be full surrender to the coming conquering King. Oh friend, be saved today!

Country With Jerusalem Embassy Abandoning Capital
22:35 Aug 26, '06 / 2 Elul 5766
El Salvador, the last country with its
embassy in Jerusalem, has decided to move it to Tel Aviv.
El Salvador's foreign ministry announced on Friday that, despite statements to the contrary earlier in the month, it would in fact be following Costa Rica’s lead and moving its embassy from Israel’s capital, Jerusalem, to Tel Aviv.
"Considering the current situation in the Middle East, El Salvador has decided to move its diplomatic representation in the State of Israel…With the decision announced today, El Salvador seeks to contribute through diplomatic means to peace between all the parties involved," El Salvador’s Foreign Ministry spokesman said, adding that it would continue to “recognize and guarantee the right of Israel to exist and live in peace within internationally-recognized borders."
El Salvador’s President Tony Saca, is descended from Christian Arabs who emigrated before the founding of the State of Israel.
As recently as August 22nd, following Costa Rica’s decision to improve ties with Arab states by moving its embassy, El Salvador has claimed it had no intention of relocating its embassy.
El Salvador said it had made the decision to move the embassy in consultation with the Israeli government, led by former Jerusalem mayor, Ehud Olmert.
The State of Israel declared Jerusalem as it's capital, but no one came. Chief among the missing was the United States even though our Congress approved the building of an Embassy in Jerusalem back in the Clinton era every President including, and since then has refused to comply. A number of smaller countries anticipating the coming of America did move their embassies to Jerusalem, but as the news of today states the last has now pulled out. This generation hates the idea of a Jewish Jerusalem. Israel stands alone! The Palestinian Arabs are expecting to be given most of Jerusalem as part of the Olmert withdrawal plan from Judah and Samaria. They are on record calling the world on notice that they will make Jerusalem their capital once they have their own State. The world is wound up, and ready to charge into Jerusalem with embassies from the nations once this happens. This generation loves the idea of a heathen capital assigned to Jerusalem. Israel stands alone.
This generation is satisfied with giving the most barbaric society since the Nazis the city of Jerusalem for their capital. Even our Evangelical White House is guilty of both hate, and contempt for the God of the Bible.
5 If I forget thee, O Jerusalem , let my right hand forget her cunning.
6 If I do not remember thee, let my tongue cleave to the roof of my mouth; if I prefer not Jerusalem above my chief joy.
Today, the Old Testament is a forgotten book. With the exception of a few Psalms and other favorite passages it is ignored. I have been doing what I can to remind this generation that this is having contempt against the God of the Bible. Ignoring the feelings God has for the city of Jerusalem next to where Christ was crucified, and raised from the dead is to invite the repayment of such iniquity to our face. Islam is intent on replacing the Bible with their blasphemous Koran throughout the Holy Land. They hate the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. They want Him replaced with their own blasphemous god Allah. The god of Abraham, Ishmael, and Esau. The nations are poised right now to push the God of the Bible out of Jerusalem, and replace Him with the god of the Koran. Folks, this is inviting the wrath of God on this generation!
Friend, who shall stand on that great day when God rightly judges the nations for their contempt over His Holy City? Only those who are in Christ! Only the "born again" of this dispensation will be able to withstand the wrath of the Lamb. Won't you come to Christ right now for the forgivness of your sin? Won't you plead His sin cleansing blood be applied to your heart? Only He has the power. Only you can make the decision to come. Won't you come right now?
8 Therefore wait ye upon me, saith the LORD, until the day that I rise up to the prey: for my determination is to gather the nations , that I may assemble the kingdoms, to pour upon them mine indignation, even all my fierce anger: for all the earth shall be devoured with the fire of my jealousy.

Intelligence Chief: Army Having Trouble Maintaining Control in N. Samaria
12:47 Aug 29, '06 / 5 Elul 5766
(IsraelNN.com) Shabak (General Security Service) chief Yuval Diskin, in his briefing to the Knesset Foreign Affairs and Security Committee Tuesday, said that the IDF is having difficulty maintaining control over the areas of northern Samaria from which Jews were forcibly evicted last summer.
Diskin said that maintaining intelligence information on the terror organizations that now dominate the area was made much more difficult by Ariel Sharon’s unilateral withdrawal.
Kidnapped journalists forced to convert
Two Fox News journalists released after 12 days as prisoners of Palestinian militants in Gaza were forced by their captors to convert to Islam.
A video tape showing Steve Centanni, from the United States, and Olaf Wiig, of New Zealand, being forced to convert at gunpoint was released just hours before the men were let go, The Times of London reported Monday. The men had been deployed to report on Israel's incursions into Gaza.
It was something we felt we had to do because they had the guns and we didn't know what the hell was going on, Centanni said.
Centanni, who was captured along with Wiig Aug. 14 while they were preparing to leave Gaza for Jerusalem, said the captors had told the journalists they were kidnapped on behalf of al-Qaida head Osama bin Laden and dead Iraq terror leader Abu Musab al-Zarqawi.
Palestinian Prime Minister Ismail Haniya said the kidnappers were from a local faction and not connected to al-Qaida or any other foreign militant organizations, The Independent reported.
The Popular Resistance Committees, an association of fighters, announced it had mediated the release.
These Fox reporters probably represent most reporters out on the field. Men of no conviction. Men and woman who haven't a clue about what is happening in the Holy Land. To them one religion is the same as another. The danger to them are people with religious convictions. I'm sure they feel the governments of all nations will never be able to function correctly until separation of Church and State is forced on all. What this really means is the forceful removal of all religion from government. The secular liberal Jewish majority living in Israel has this same ideal. Their greatest fear is that religious zealots might take control. Zealots who would demand the Jews build the Third Holy Jewish Temple on the Temple Mount as is commanded in the Bible. Islam is ready to die for Allah. Soon the God of the Bible is going to raise up a group of Jewish zealots ready to live for their Messiah God, the Bible, and the Holy Jewish Temple. These zealous redeemed Jews will be the first fruits unto the Lamb of God the LORD Jesus Christ in the next dispensation. I'm convinced they will be the builders of the Last Holy Jewish Temple on the Temple Mount. I'm convinced the architects will be the Two Witnesses of Revelation 11, and these 144,000 will be the work force. Together they will build Ezekiel's Temple (Ezekiel 40 - 48), and establish kosher acceptable worship. This Temple will have an Altar where blood sacrifice will be offered in remembrance of Calvary. These first fruits will establish Biblical Judaism in the next dispensation as God always intended it to be. Centered in the LORD Jesus Christ. Perfect government ruled over by a perfect King merged into perfect religion centered in a perfect Savior all under the absolute control of the perfect Holy God of the Bible. In that day they will honor the Lamb!
3 Saying, Hurt not the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees, till we have sealed the servants of our God in their foreheads.
4 And 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.
3 And 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.
4 These 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.
5 And in their mouth was found no guile: for they are without fault before the throne of God.
Today, our Evangelical White House along with the liberal secular Jewish majority living in Israel have no convictions about the disposition of most of Jerusalem, and who has sovereignty over the Temple Mount. They see both Jerusalem, and the Temple Mount as stumbling stones to their secular peace plans. The withdrawal from Judah and Samaria goes on as if the last month never happened. Jerusalem and the Temple Mount are considered cursed, and the sooner they get rid of them the better. I'm sure the song the 144,000 sing which no man can learn will be related to building the absolutely pure and holy House of God which is beyond the abilities of sin filled men. A Temple so perfect that the presents of God will fill it with His glory.
2 And, behold, the glory of the God of Israel came from the way of the east: and his voice was like a noise of many waters: and the earth shined with his glory .
3 And it was according to the appearance of the vision which I saw, even according to the vision that I saw when I came to destroy the city: and the visions were like the vision that I saw by the river Chebar; and I fell upon my face.
4 And the glory of the LORD came into the house by the way of the gate whose prospect is toward the east.
5 So the spirit took me up, and brought me into the inner court; and, behold, the glory of the LORD filled the house.
Islam will have met it's match in zealousness when these Jews arrive on the scene. Nothing is going to stop them from building Ezekiel's Temple. There will be no forced worship in this Temple. It will be just the opposite. Only a privileged few will be allowed to go beyond the court of the gentiles. These precious few will be perfectly cleansed both outwardly, and inwardly through water immersion. Only then will they be fit to come into such a holy place. Only then can they come near the Holy God of the Bible. The God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. The soon coming King of kings and LORD of Lords. Only then will their sacrifice be acceptable in remembrance to the only single sin cleansing sacrifice by the Lamb of God. The LORD Jesus Christ in all His glory will be sitting on His throne in the Holy of Holies looking out upon the Altar accepting the worship of these humbled converts to Biblical Judaism.
Friend, you may be able to clean the outside to pass the inspection of men, but you can't clean the inside. Only by being washed in the sin cleansing blood of Christ can you pass His inspection. Won't you come to Him for that cleansing right now? Just pray to Him that He would save you from sin. That He will give you new life that will be acceptable to the absolutely Holy God of the Bible. This generation does not want a Holy Jewish Temple to be put up on the Temple Mount. Won't you join the remnant that do?
