Top level Egyptians to Israel, Wednesday
Big News Network.com Tuesday 30th November, 2004
Egypt's foreign minister and
chief of intelligence Tuesday prepared for meetings in Israel to work on
advancing the peace process.
Foreign Minister Ahmad Ali Abu-al-Ghayt and intelligence chief Omar Suleiman were scheduled to arrive Wednesday, the Israeli Foreign Ministry announced. They were expected last week but postponed their trip after an Israeli tank killed three Egyptian police near Rafah. Israel apologized saying it was an accident.
Egypt has been deeply involved in attempts to end the Israeli-Palestinian fighting and Tuesday Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak met with Syrian President Bashar Assad in Sharm el-Sheikh. Assad has been sending messages saying he wanted to resume peace talks with Israel.
Egypt has offered its help to advance contacts with Damascus and al-Ghayt said he expected a response from Israel. So far Israeli officials have reacted coldly to the Syrian initiative.
Al-Ghayt and Suleiman are to meet the Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon and the foreign and defense ministers.
Now the Syrians are jumping on the peace bandwagon. It could be they have opened their eyes with the Bush victory election, and realized they are next on the list of Arab countries to be pacified. I doubt there is some secret great master plan to overthrow the hostel Arab neighbors of Israel, but were doors to open through the natural flow of events that would make this possible - I'm sure such an opportunity would be looked upon as very favorable. The Syrians looking at what just happened to Saddam Hussein may well be thinking very differently today. What is certain is that before the gentile Road Map can ever be enacted, something must change in Syria! Egypt had gone from being the worst enemy of the Jews to signing the first Arabic peace treaty with them. I suppose it is not an impossibility that Syria might contemplate doing the same. Especially with the US Army standing on their boarder fresh with victory over the more powerful Iraqi army.
The pacification of Syria would carry with it the pacification of Lebanon. This would force the Hizb Allah terrorists all the way back to the Iranian boarder. Islam would be besides itself were the Jews to find peace, no matter how phony, with their Arab neighbors. The death of Arafat has opened the door to all this. The politicos realize doors do not stay open long, and so the secular peacemakers are working quickly. Not one has considered the Bible, or what God's will is for the future of the Holy Land, but they all are working furiously while the moment is at hand.
It may seem strange to the God is love groups that this movement for peace in the Holy Land is doomed to fail. It will have temporary secular success which will make me look like an ogre, but then I see God as much more then just love. I see Him as Just, and I see His coming Kingdom as a Kingdom of perfect justice based on Biblical righteousness. I see God as no respecter of persons, or the religions they have put together. I see all men as lost in sin, and the God of the Bible as the only one who is right! I see the righteousness of mankind as filthy rags, and only God with the perfect plan for eternal peace.
Dispensational change is coming to the Holy Land, Jerusalem, and the Temple Mount. All religions, all governments, all Nations must step aside for the Holy God of the Bible. The LORD of hosts is about to reveal His fullness as the coming King of glory. All men will be required to bow the knee to this mighty ruler. He will be the perfect judge. Only He will be able to see into the heart, and judge accordingly. He will be the only perfect leader who will balance grace through love with righteous wrath against those who would desire their sin to ruin His perfect Kingdom. He is the only one who can establish perfect religion that humors holiness without compromise on any single issue. Only He has the power to change hearts into conformity to His holiness. Yet, He will not force His love on any who reject His revealed plan for salvation. The sad truth is that most of this generation reject His puritanical holiness. They want no part of it. They want the freedom to sin. They want the freedom to establish their own styles of religion. They refuse His standards as too perfect. They chose sin over righteousness! They reject the Christ of the Bible!

Al-Qaeda Statements Increasingly Focused On Israel
Secent statements by Al-Qaeda chief Osama Bin Laden and one of his top deputies may indicate an apparent shift in the global terror group’s main objectives.
Recent communications from Al-Qaeda show an intensified focus upon Israel, with attempts to scare the American public into abandoning its support of the Jewish State having become a recurring theme.
Osama Bin Laden released a statement last month addressing the American public prior to the U.S. elections. Though excerpts of the statement appeared in the Western press, the full text was not widely publicized for fear that it included coded messages to operatives. The following are excerpts of Bin Laden's October 29th statement, translated by MEMRI:
"O American people, I address these words to you regarding the best way of avoiding another Manhattan, and regarding the war, its causes and its consequences,Bin Laden said. "I say to you, as Allah is my witness: We had not considered attacking the towers, but things reached the breaking point when we witnessed the iniquity and tyranny of the American-Israeli coalition against our people in Palestine and Lebanon, then I got this idea.
The Al-Qaeda chief went on to explain how American support for Israel directly led to his murder of Americans:
"The events that had a direct influence on me occurred in 1982, and the subsequent events, when the US permitted the Israelis to invade Lebanon with the aid of the American 6th Fleet. They started shelling, and many were killed and wounded, while others were terrorized into fleeing. In those critical moments, I was overwhelmed by ideas that are hard to describe, but they awakened a powerful impulse to reject injustice and gave birth to a firm resolve to punish the oppressors.
"As I was looking at those destroyed towers in Lebanon, I was struck by the idea of punishing the oppressor in the same manner and destroying towers in the US, to give it a taste of what we have tasted and to deter it from killing our children and women.
On February 11, 2003, Bin Laden released a vehemently anti-Israel statement to Al-Jazeera:
"We are following up with great interest and extreme concern the crusaders' preparations for war to occupy a former capital of Islam, loot Muslims' wealth, and install an agent government, which would be a satellite for its masters in Washington and Tel Aviv, just like all the other treasonous and agent Arab governments. This would be in preparation for establishing the Greater Israel.
"...We stress the importance of the martyrdom operations against the enemy operations that inflicted harm on the United States and Israel that have been unprecedented in their history, thanks to [Allah].
"Allah says: 'O ye who believe! Take not the Jews and the Christians [emphasis added - ed.] for your friends and protectors: they are but friends and protectors to each other.' And he amongst you that turns to them [for friendship] is of them."
In earlier Al-Qaeda statements, US support for Israel was only referred to as one of many perceived injustices on the part of America. For instance, the terrorist organization demanded in October 2001 that the US "retreat in defeat in Afghanistan, stop your assistance to the Jews in Palestine, end the siege imposed on the Iraqi people, leave the Arabian Peninsula, and stop your support for the Hindus against the Muslims in Kashmir."
As noted, however, more recent communiques from the terror group have increasingly featured Israel as the main target. A videotape recorded before the American election but broadcast just two days ago (Monday) on the Al-Jazeera Arab satellite station is a prime example. The tape features Al-Qaeda's second-in-command Ayman Al-Dhawahiri telling Americans that it did not matter whether they voted for a Republican or Democratic candidate, because both were guilty of supporting Israel's existence.
"The two US presidential candidates are challenging each other to satisfy Israel," Al-Dhawahiri said, "to continue a crime against the Islamic nation in Palestine that began 87 years ago."
Al-Qaeda has been implicated in several attacks or attempted attacks against Jewish targets. In September 2003, IDF Chief of Staff Lt.-Gen. Moshe Yaalon mentioned plans by Al Qaeda to hijack a Saudi Arabian fighter jet and crash it into a major office tower in Israel. Earlier that year, police in Thailand nipped in the bud an Al-Qaeda shooting attack against El Al passengers in the Bangkok airport. In April 2003, it was reported that Al-Qaeda terrorists planned to fire a Strella-2 anti-aircraft missile at an El Al airliner landing in London's Heathrow International Airport. In October 2003, two Iranians with ties to Al-Qaeda were deported from Great Britain after they were caught photographing synagogues and other Jewish community buildings.
We lost one of our own this past week. A 25 year old Marine who grew up in our Church. He died in Iraq cleaning out those who are the sworn enemies of both Christians and Jews! A true Christian soldier who did his duty with pride, and is another added to the list of American heroes. He died fighting the supporters of the 9/11 attackers, and his death has great purpose and meaning. He represented the Bible, and his LORD and Savior Jesus Christ in a land buried in darkness. He died in defense of the God of the Bible who is forcing His will for the future of the Holy Land on the entire world. The conflict of sin filled resistance to dispensational change has only just begun. God is determined to bring in the Kingdom Age. Islam is the first that must step aside for the coming Jewish King of glory. David died for the Biblical future of the Holy Land, Jerusalem, and the Temple Mount. Our heart felt sympathy goes out to his mom, dad, and family. Our duty is to march ever onward as to war. Our Savior is worthy of all sacrifice. His coming Kingdom will be the victory we seek. Not by our power, but by our faithfulness.
Marine on 2nd tour dies in Iraq
Memorial service for lance corporal to be held Sunday in Mooresville
Bob Houck believes more than ever that the fight for the Iraqis' freedom must go on.
"I feel that any place worthy of shedding my son's blood is a place that's worth doing the right job for," said Houck, 57, of the Mooresville area.
His son, Lance Cpl. David B. Houck, 25, of Winston-Salem, died Friday while fighting in Iraq's Anbar province, the Department of Defense said. Houck was assigned to 1st Battalion, 8th Marine Regiment, 2nd Marine Division, II Marine Expeditionary Force at Camp Lejeune.
Bob Houck said he knew what to expect when he saw Marines in full dress uniform knocking on his door in the Millbridge community north of Mooresville.
He used to have the same job, he said, when he was in uniform himself. The elder Houck spent a career in the Navy working as an electronic technician senior chief and later as second in command in Arkansas.
"It's really hard to do when you see the sorrow and grief that families are going through," he said.
Bob and Beth Houck deal with their grief by remembering the funny songs they invented for David and his four siblings to help them fall asleep at night.
They also remembering how happy they were in February 2002, when David Houck called and asked if they could store his belongings.
He was joining the Marines.
"I was overjoyed," Houck said. "He had no direction. He had been floundering and working at UPS at night and delivering furniture during the day, wearing himself out."
The Marine Corps was a good fit for his son, Houck remembers thinking. David Houck knew right from wrong and had a strong sense of duty, he said.
In February 2003, Houck left Camp Lejeune for the Iraqi coast. His son fought at the airport in Mosul and helped quell riots, surviving on one meal a day, Bob Houck said.
According to The Associated Press, in the midst of the airport battle, Houck found a rose growing among the rubble. He enclosed petals from the flower in a letter he sent his mother.
In his letter, he wrote: "It seems strange that beauty can be found in the midst of chaos."
In later e-mails, he discussed how he had killed others.
"I've actually killed a couple of people," he wrote, according to The Associated Press report. "It's kind of strange how something that I've been trained to do can sit so heavily on my mind."
David Houck returned to Camp Lejeune in October 2003 and trained in urban warfare.
In June 2004, he was deployed again to Iraq.
With that kind of training, which focuses on fighting in tight spaces, the family knew their son would likely face situations where he could be injured or killed.
"We were hoping that wouldn't be true, but that's just reality," his father said. "We are both confident that David is in heaven and that we'll see him again.
"That's really what sustains us through the day."
A memorial service for David Houck will be held at 3 p.m. Sunday at Peninsula Baptist Church in Mooresville.
He will be buried at Arlington National Cemetery.

Farouk Kadumi: "Two States" Just a Temporary Solution
19:38 Dec 02, '04 / 19 Kislev 5765
A top PA official has reiterated the end-goal of the creation of a Palestinian state alongside Israel: a Palestinian state instead of Israel.
In a seeming re-affirmation of the PLO's 1974 "destroy Israel" program, commonly known as the Phased Plan, Fatah co-founder Farouk Kadumi termed the struggle for a two-state solution just a “stage” on the road to “only one [state].”
Kadumi spoke on Nov. 29th with Iran’s Al-Aram television station. When the interviewer asked Kadumi, “What is the future of Palestine?” the PLO leader answered: “At this stage there will be two states. Many years from now there will be only one.”
Asked why he has not softened his stance against Israel’s existence, Kadumi
replied, "Our enemy always says, 'This is Judea and Samaria' ... They haven't changed their discourse. If they change theirs, we will change ours, and if not, we will keep saying that armed resistance is the way to Palestine."
He expressed confidence in the Arabs' ultimate victory, saying, “[There are] 300 million Arabs, while Israel has only the sea behind it.”
The entire clip, translated by MEMRI, can be viewed by clicking here.
The basic principle of the 1974 Phased Plan is that the PLO would struggle to initially establish an "independent combatant national authority" over any territory "liberated" from Israeli rule. That “national authority” would then be used as a base for continued terror attacks. The final phase of the plan is all-out war against Israel by all her Arab neighbors with the hope of destroying the Jewish State entirely.
The truth is not hard to find. The real intent of the Palestinian Arabs has never changed. They have raised this generation on hate for the elimination of all Jews from the Holy Land. The plan is if this generation can't accomplish the goal then the next will. The gentile Road Map is only interested in one plan, and that is the two States. I suppose they figure once accomplished it will be someone else's problem what happens afterward. The Road Map is nothing more then self imposed blinders that refuse to see the surrounding truth. A peace plan based on lies! The Islamic Arabs could never be more clear in their intent, and lying to get to the two State step is already part of their final goal. They say one thing in English, and a totally opposite thing in Arabic.
Destroy Israel is what this generation of Islam is about. The world is on the brink of all out religious war already declared by Islam. Who does not know that if Islam should succeed with the Jews the Christians would be next. After them the Hindus, Buddhists, and down the line. Islam is a time bomb religion ready to explode. The defeats in Afghanistan, and Iraq have dented their resolve, but victory over the Jews is still statistically in their favor. Islam has the numbers. They have the oil money. They have the ear of the Europeans. They see only the United States as the thorn that prevents them from ethnically cleansing the Holy Land of Jews. The fact that they can't get along with each other never seems to enter into the discussion. It is always someone else to blame, and ultimately it is always the Jews.
God has His own plan for the future of the Holy Land. It is a plan that eliminates Islam! God is also very clear about His goal. The first step will be to lure Islam onto the mountains and into the fields of Israel. Then the final step will come crushing down in the destruction of the Islamic armies with one supernatural blow. Islam will never be an influence over the Holy Land after Ezekiel 39 takes place. The Jews will be free to build the Last Jewish Temple on the Temple Mount.
Folks, things are happening fast in the Holy Land once again. The false peace that Ezekiel predicted seems inevitable now. The death of Arafat has changed everything. The security wall is being put on hold, and I fully expect the Jews to pull it down just as Ezekiel predicted. This is all part of the first step God has planed to lure the blood thirsty heathen in for their final destruction. The 3 pronged Islamic Invasion is very close, and the resulting cleansing of the Temple Mount in preparation for construction of Ezekiel's Last Holy Jewish Temple (Ezek 40 - 48) is about to begin. No longer will God's sanctuary be trodden down. The latter days have arrived. The time for dispensational change is here.

Sharon Turns to Labor
Without Likud Permission
12:04 Dec 03, '04 / 20 Kislev 5765
Israel once again faces an uncertain political future, with Prime Minister Ariel Sharon making every effort to garner the support of a majority of the Knesset.
The firing of the five Shinui Party ministers, and the party's departure from the coalition, takes effect tonight, 48 hours after they voted against the government's 2005 budget proposal.
The government currently includes only 13 ministers, the smallest it has been in over 50 years. More tellingly, it commands the support of only precisely one-third of the Knesset, namely, the 40 MKs of the Likud. Prime Minister Sharon is now pursuing the Labor and United Torah Judaism parties, in an attempt to retain his hold on the regime.
Though the Likud Central Committee has rejected the option of including Labor in the government without at least one religious party, Sharon has already begun negotiations with Labor. The Committee is scheduled to convene next week to vote on the move. Significantly, Sharon has refused to say that he would honor whatever decision is made in that forum. Asked by reporters if he would abide by the party's decision, the Prime Minister said yesterday, "I know how to handle things... I expect to win the vote." This past summer, Sharon said he would abide by the results of the party referendum on the disengagement – but proceeded with his program even after it was defeated in the vote.
Health Minister Danny Naveh, who opposes the disengagement/expulsion plan, said today that he would rather have the Likud "renew our historic alliance with the religious parties," and not be beholden to Labor.
Sharon, however, has said that all future coalition partners must agree in advance to support the disengagement. This rules out Shas, whose spiritual leader Rabbi Ovadiah Yosef has come out strongly against a unilateral withdrawal. United Torah Judaism, however, has been more circumspect. Though the party voted against the withdrawal and uprooting in the recent Knesset vote, some of its MKs made clear that this did not necessarily mean its absolute opposition to the plan.
UTJ's MK Meir Porush said this morning, "Such an ultimatum [by Sharon] is not a respectable way of doing things. According to this, some of Sharon's own ministers who have voted in the past against the disengagement will have to be replaced. Let them [the Likud] first invite us to talks, we'll see what they want, we'll see what we want, and things will proceed from there."
The Prime Minister said yesterday that Arafat's death will not impede the disengagement. Though he hopes that Arafat's successors will enable the renewal of talks with Israel, he emphasized that "the disengagement will take place, period."
There is one big thorn to the gentile peace plan that is yet to be tested. The Jewish street response to Sharon's unilateral withdrawal plan which will be the first step onto the Road Map. Already the Sharon government is in terrible trouble, and close to collapse. The dictatorial approach by Sharon is hitting heavy resistance. The ultra right wing Sharon is reaching out to the ultra left wing Peres to save his withdrawal plan. It is hard to figure how Israeli politics work, but the conservative Sharon has adopted the most liberal position of giving away the Holy Land for a hand shake. It is no wonder Israeli politics are in turmoil. The Jews are confused not knowing who stands for what.
The untested factor to Sharon's dictatorial approach for withdrawal will be the passion of the 8,000 Independent Fundamental Jewish Settlers who are expected to sacrifice their homes in the Gaza. Next will be the 250,000 Settlers living in Samaria and Judah. It is not just their homes, but their vision of the future for the Holy Land. It is their faith in the God of the Bible that is about to be tested. The government is offering them large cash incentives to go along with the relocation program. That will all be lost should they refuse to leave, and concentration camps are already under construction to forcibly house the resistors. Automatic jail sentences for entire families are being formulated by the liberal politicians. An iron fist is the plan on how to deal with a remnant of Independent Fundamental Jewish Settlers by the secular majority. What is yet to be seen is how the average Jew on the street will react to such strong arm tactics? Many are predicting Civil War will break out with the first pictures of Jewish children behind barbed wire fences. Residual memories of the Holocaust may be more then what this generation of Jews can take. Many still remember how turn coat Jews worked with the Nazi gentiles to create the Holocaust, and Jewish government officials could find themselves categorized as such collaborators. There is plenty of liberal hate for these conservative Jewish settlers to cause great misery. Sharon, who used to support the settlers is now stabbing them in the back. They are no longer politically useful in the Road Map era of Jewish politics. The unknown factor remains how the Jewish street will react when the violence begins.
The cost of the coming Kingdom is going up. Already, many Christian soldiers have paid with their lives in Afghanistan and Iraq. Many Jews have been paying ever since 1948 with the establishment of the State of Israel. The price is definitely going up! The faithful Jews are now about to be isolated. They are about to be concentrated behind barbed wire. The government will do it's best to vilify their motivations. The world will hate them for putting God's plan for peace above the more popular secular peace plan. The sacrificial lambs have been chosen. The scapegoats are ready to be rounded up. I don't think they are going to go peaceably. The Holocaust is just too fresh in their memories.
The full price has been paid at Calvary, but faithfulness to God in a world sold out to sin has a price exacted on the children of God by the majority. It is not possible for a mere man to buy his way into salvation. The price is too high. Only the precious blood of the LORD Jesus Christ is able to atone for sin. Another price is required from those who love this Savior who died in the sinner's place. A price of living for Him in a hostel world. It is that price which has just gone up because the hostility has just gone up. The hate for any who put God above the interests of men is increasing with the approach of the coming Kingdom.

New slump in 2004 immigration to Israel
Fri Dec 3, 8:13 AM ET
JERUSALEM (AFP) - Immigration to Israel further slumped in 2004, as a rise in Jews coming from Western countries failed to compensate for plummeting numbers of immigrants from the former Soviet Union.
"Israel is set to absorb some 22,000 immigrants this year," compared with around 25,000 in 2003, Jewish Agency spokesman Yarden Vatikai told AFP on Friday.
The number of immigrants from the former Soviet Union went down from 12,500 to 10,000 during the same period and represents half of those Jews and descendants of Jews who immigrated to Germany.
The Jewish Agency, the semi-government agency that promotes Jewish immigration, criticized Germany's generous immigration policy, which led to a decrease in the number of Jews from the former Soviet Union settling in Israel.
It deemed that Germany should not consider them as refugees.
Sixty percent of immigrants from the former Soviet Union are not viewed as Jews by Israel's rabbinic authorities, but still enjoy the Jewish state's law of return that automatically grants them the Israeli citizenship as Jews or descendants of Jews.
The number of French and US Jews moving to Israel in 2004 went up 20 percent but remained quite modest with 2,400 coming from France and 2,800 from the United States.
In 2002, 34,831 people immigrated to Israel, compared with 44,000 in 2001 and 60,000 in 2000 -- numbers that were already in stark contrast with the massive wave of immigration from the former Soviet Union in the 1990s.
Jewish immigration in 2004 is five times lower than that forecast by Israel's Prime Minster Ariel Sharon (news - web sites) for the next ten years.
Since 1948 when the Jewish state was created, more than three million Jewish immigrants have settled in Israel.
The last Exodus from the Babylonian captivity did not involve the majority of Jews. It was only a remnant that returned with Ezra and Nehemiah. It was only a remnant that built the Second Holy Jewish Temple on the Temple Mount. It may well be that the remnant of this third Exodus are now in place? The Exodus has slowed, and may be over. Should this be true then the first responsibility of this remnant is now to build the Third Holy Jewish Temple on the Temple Mount! There is no doubt in my mind that the Last Biblical Holy Jewish Temple (Ezekiel 40 - 48) will soon be built upon the Temple Mount. This present Exodus has no purpose without that Temple! The greatest obstacle today preventing the building of the Last Temple is Islam. Many are convinced this is too great an obstacle to be overcome by man or God. Compromise and negotiations are the practical solution by little men who have no concept of just how great is the God of the Bible. This generation has willingly forgotten what this God did to Egypt, Babylon, more recently the Nazis, and all other obstacles placed in His way.
The building of the Last Jewish Temple is a task relegated to just a remnant of the remnant. I'm convinced the Two Witnesses and 144,000 Jews of Revelation will accomplish this task. I'm convinced 12,000 from every tribe are those Jews now living on those original tribal lands. Most of whom are now part of the over 250.000 Independent Fundamental Jewish Settlers now living in Yesha (Samaria, Judah, and Gaza). The conflict between God's plan for the Last Holy Jewish Temple, and the gentile Road Map is about to explode. God is forcing the issue! Sin, in resisting God, is forcing the issue from the other direction. The hostility against the Jewish Settlers will find full fruition when the 8,000 Settlers of Gaza are physically removed from their homes.
Only one plan is going to work. I suspect the Road Map forces will gain a temporary victory. A phony peace that will only encourage Islam to invade Israel. The God of the Bible has not only compensated for this coming shallow victory, but will incorporate the Islamic invasion into His overall plan for the building of the Last Holy Jewish Temple on the Temple Mount. Ezekiel 39 describes the supernatural destruction of the Islamic armies. Islamic influence over the Holy Land ends with Ezekiel 39. It is no coincidence that after Ezekiel 39 comes the description of Ezekiel's end times Temple from chapter 40 - 48. The chronology is the end of Islam, and then Ezekiel's Temple.
It will be up to the remnant of Jews to build this Temple. They will need supernatural direction to accomplish the task. The Last Holy Jewish Temple must be perfect. It will be holy! Nothing will be allowed to pollute this Holy House of God. This Temple will have an altar as did all previous Temples. Blood sacrifice will be offered, but this time as a remembrance of Calvary not looking forward to Calvary. This Temple will be the only Temple built with a throne. It will be in preparation for the coming King of glory. The return of the LORD Jesus Christ.

A New Government.
This last week, the government was very busy haggling with the religious parties to get their support and all they had to do in return was to name their price.
The Likud, Prime Minister Sharon's leading party gave in to the blackmail and we saw funds that could not previously be found for medical aid or education, suddenly appear out of nowhere distributed freely to the religious sector for their support.
PM Sharon knew that his main partners in government, the "Shinui" (Change)
party, would not allow for this and would vote against the budget; I am at a
loss as to his tactics this time.
The budget of course did not pass and all Shinui ministers were fired from the government for voting against the budget. (Great democracy :-) ).
Now PM Sharon has a government of 40 members of Knesset as opposed to 80 members of Knesset. (120 in total)
He is looking to create a national unity government with the Labor party and who knows whom, but one thing is for certain. If it were not for the detachment plan that is getting everyone's support, we would be having elections in 3 months time.
The "lucky" religious party that is going to do the best negotiating is going to take money for Yeshivas and their own purposes instead of it going where it should.
Shame on you Mr. Sharon.
Shame on you Mr. Nethanyahu.
These "Insider" comments show the frustrations faced by the Independent Fundamental Jewish Settlers. Everyone in Israel, even the so called religious right wing, is ready to sell them (the settlers) down the river for the right price. Democracy is a sham whenever the sin of greed is allowed to dominate. America has been blessed with enough honest men to keep our democracy from tumbling into the pit. The God of the Bible can be thanked for such results. We have also had our share of crooked politicians who make democracy stink. Hopefully, the Jews will be able to overcome this present crop of politicians, and get back to basic honesty. The more probable course will sadly be that sin will drag down Israeli politics to the murky depths where all godless governments eventually go. It is only when men turn to God that good comes out of a government. The founding fathers of the United States emphasized that it was in God that we trust for our democracy to work right.
There is a lot of talk these days about democracy. The vote is thought to be the factor that corrals greed. They have it all wrong! It is God not the vote that makes the democracy of America shine. The light is fading fast. I suspect the rapture will forever put out that light, and godless men will control American politics taking it into the same miry pit the Jews are now heading. Democracy is no man's salvation. Democracy in Iraq based on the wrong god is a disaster in the making. Democracy in Israel based on hypocrisy will not fair much better.
God is in control! He uses a remnant of faithful followers to keep the gospel light shining in a world sold out to sin. It is amazing how a minority of small, and seemingly insignificant little lights can guide the masses into right thinking. Even more amazing is that they lead some to the Bible, and salvation. Yes, God is in control!
I do not have good feelings about where I see Israeli politics heading. I rejoice knowing God is preparing this generation of Jews for redemption. Dispensational change will start in the hearts of many Jews now living in Israel. It will happen after the rapture. It may even touch some of the crooks now ruining the present government? It is not democracy, but theocracy that can save. But, only when that theocracy is centered in the Bible. It is only when the theocratic King the LORD Jesus Christ sits on His throne in the Holy Land, at Jerusalem, and on the Temple Mount that redemption will be realized for this generation of Jews in Israel.

Report: U.S. backs Mideast peace conference in London
LONDON - Britain has won U.S. agreement to hold an international peace conference on the Middle East in London early next year, the Daily Telegraph reported on Monday.
The newspaper, quoting unidentified senior diplomatic sources for its information, said British Prime Minister Tony Blair would discuss details with Israeli and Palestinian leaders during a visit to the Middle East this month.
No immediate comment was available from British officials on the report, but Blair has made a resolution of the conflict between Israelis and Palestinians a foreign policy priority and has linked it to fighting terrorism.
The conference, planned for late January or early February, was likely to be attended by foreign ministers but it was not yet clear that Israel would send a delegation at that level, said the Daily Telegraph.
The newspaper said the conference would probably be announced only after a Jan. 9 Palestinian ballot to choose a successor to Yasser Arafat and would depend on the election of moderate former Prime Minister Mahmoud Abbas.
It quoted an unidentified Israeli source as saying "there will be no conference" if Palestinians elected Marwan Barghouti, who is serving five life sentences in an Israeli jail for ordering militant attacks that killed Israelis.
The Daily Telegraph said Washington was unlikely to deal with Barghouthi either.
The newspaper quoted the diplomatic sources as saying preparations for the conference now dominated U.S.-British foreign policy talks and were at the heart of attempts to heal rifts between Washington and some European nations over Iraq.
Blair discussed the question of a conference with U.S. President George W. Bush in Washington last month. Both leaders said the death of Arafat offered an opportunity to advance the long-stalled Middle East peace process.
Bush has vowed to use the next four years of his second term to help establish a Palestinian state as part of a peace deal.
The entire world is now noticing that on this London Conference will ride all expectations for the future of mankind. This gentile dominated world is putting all their eggs into one basket with only one single two State peace plan. The gentile world is determined to make it work! The time is right with the death of Arafat. The mood is right with the disgust of terrorism. The place is right with the Holy Land being center to all the perceived unrest in the world. 9/11, terrorism, the Iraq War, and the relationships between the Western powers are all riding on this conference producing results. Failure will not be tolerated! God and the Bible are expected to step aside as the wisdom of men prepares the way for world peace. It is a Christ-less peace plan that totally ignores the fact that the God of the Bible has chosen this time for dispensational change. All these world leaders have purposely ignored the clear teaching of the Bible that the Lord Jesus Christ is coming again to the Holy Land, Jerusalem, and the Temple Mount.
The gentile challenge against the Bible is being formulated. The London Conference will establish the implementation of this affront to the God of the Bible. The world, and especially the Christian religious world, lies slumbering in some unexplainable stupor. It is almost as if the Bible never said anything about the future coming Kingdom Age. It is as if the most repeated prayer "thy kingdom come, thy will be done" are just words without meaning. Folks, giving the worst culture in the world today a large part of the Holy Land is not a plan the will produce peace! The Holy Land does not belong to the gentiles, or the compromising Jewish politicians. It belongs to God, and God has clearly brought about this third miraculous Exodus ever recorded in human history to prove His intent to keep His word about the Jews! A Jewish Kingdom with a Jewish Temple at Jerusalem is center to the Biblical peace plan, and this London Conference will totally ignore that plan. In fact, it will be the compete opposite replacing the Arabs for the Jews, and giving Allah the glory rather then the God of Abraham. Isaac, and Jacob! This plan is blasphemous!
This world needs to learn a hard lesson! It is not man, but God upon whom we must trust for our future. It is His righteousness that will prevail. It is His mighty arm that will accomplish all that He wrote in the Bible. Salvation is coming to Zion once again, and it is man who must step aside. The plan that God had from the very beginning through Father Abraham will be accomplished. The whole gentile world is scheduled for destruction because they will refuse to submit to God's Biblical plan. The times of the gentiles is over. The times for the Kingdom Age are about to begin.

December 8 - 15
Chanukah was established to commemorate the very opposite of cultural assimilation. It dates back nearly 22 centuries, to the successful Jewish revolt against Antiochus IV, one of the line of Syrian-Greek monarchs who ruled the northern branch of Alexander the Great's collapsed empire. Alexander had been respectful of the Jews' monotheistic religion, but Antiochus was determined to impose Hellenism, with its pagan gods and its cult of the body, throughout his domains. When he met resistance in Judea, he made Judaism illegal.
Sabbath observance, circumcision, and the study of Torah were banned on pain of death. A statue of Zeus was installed in the Temple in Jerusalem, and swine were sacrificed before it. Some Jews embraced the new order and willingly abandoned the God and faith of their ancestors. Those who wouldn't were cruelly punished. Ancient writings tell the story of Hannah and her seven sons, who were captured by Antiochus's troops and commanded to bow to an idol. One by one, each boy refused -- and was tortured to death before his mother's eyes.
The fight to reclaim Jewish religious autonomy began in 167 BC. In the town of Modi'in, an elderly priest named Mattathias refused a Syrian order to sacrifice to an idol. When an apostate Jew stepped forward to comply, Mattathias killed the man and tore down the altar. Then he and his five sons took to the hills and launched a guerrilla war against the armies of the empire.
When Mattathias died, his third son, Judah Maccabee, took command. He and his band of fighters were impossibly outnumbered, yet they won one miraculous victory after another. In 164 BC, they recaptured the Temple, which they cleansed and purified and rededicated to God. On the 25th day of the Jewish month of Kislev, the menorah -- the candelabra symbolizing the divine presence -- was rekindled. For eight days, throngs of Jews celebrated the Temple's restoration. "All the people prostrated themselves," records the book of Maccabees, "worshipping and praising Heaven that their cause had prospered."
This was the Second Temple that was completely refurbished by King Herod in the days when Christ walked the streets of Jerusalem. The Greek despot Antiochus IV is a prominent character in the Book of Daniel. He is known as the "little horn" who was predicted to come, and torment the Jewish people. Bible scholars have long recognized Antiochus !V as a type of the antichrist yet to come in the latter days. Just as Antiochus was prophesied to come, and did! So also will the antichrist come! Both are called the "little horn" in the Book of Daniel. Both are the worst thing that ever happed to each perspective Jewish generation. Antiochus IV was a vicious fellow who made Hitler look like a kindergartener. The worst thing I read about his outrages against the Jews was what he did to mothers who circumcised their male babies as Jewish law required. He would have the baby murdered in front of the mother, and then have the dead corpse chained around her neck. She was forced to walk the streets of Jerusalem with a sign designating her crime against the State. The crime of obeying the Bible. She would eventually succumb to the diseases produced by the decaying corpse around her neck. It was a scene of unparalleled barbarianism.
The barbarians of our generation are yet to reach this level of depravity. The same prophet Daniel predicted another "little horn" is yet to come. He will be more vicious then the first who already came. He will not just control the pleasant land, but the whole world. He will not just oppose the Bible, but will declare himself to be god. His blasphemies and barbarianism will set new lows in human depravity. He is called the beast by God for good reason. His animalistic behavior will have no equal. Today, our generation is being reintroduced to barbarism. It is only the beginning. The Jewish Temple Mount is again becoming the center of all resistive barbarism in the world. The great conflict between the beast, and the God of the Bible is almost here. The full meaning of Chanakkah is about to revealed to the world.

Two children suffer shock in attack on Gaza settlement
By Haaretz Service
Palestinians fired two anti-tank rockets at a day-care center in the northern Gaza Strip settlement of Nissanit early Wednesday, causing two children to suffer from shock.
The attack came as PA officials in Gaza confirmed that the Lebanese-based Hezbollah is trying to recruit activists from among local armed groups in the Strip, Israel Radio reported.
Reacting to the rocket attack, Nissanit settlers Wednesday demanded that the IDF demolish the buildings from which the projectiles were fired.
In a separate incident, a mortar shell was fired at an area of hothouses in a settlement in the Gush Katif region in the southern Strip. The shell caused neither damage nor casualties.
PA officials: Hezbollah seeking inroads in Gaza
Senior Palestinian Authority officials in the Gaza Strip have confirmed that the Lebanese-based militant organization Hezbollah is trying to recruit activists from among local armed groups, Israel Radio reported Wednesday.
According to the report, the officials believe that the Iranian-backed group is trying to repeat its success in recruiting in the West Bank, but, save for a few exceptions, the group has failed to attract any recruits in Gaza.
The sources claimed, however, that the Palestinian group behind the kidnapping of Israeli Arab journalist Riad Ali several months ago had ties to Hezbollah and had received funding from the group, the radio said.
The sources also said that they were looking into the possibility of replacing the top official in the security forces in Gaza in a bid to improve performance.
According to the sources, the head of the Preventative Security in the Gaza Strip, Rashid Abu Shbak, could be named as the new head of the Palestinian police force.
Here is a politically improper report that will never make CNN, or any of the other American news sources. It most certainly will not be reported in Europe. It is anti-peace. It reveals the truth of the targeting of Jewish children by the Islamic militants. However, this story will be reported in the Islamic press where it will cause joyful excitement as the power of Allah over the Jews is promoted between the lines. There will be no disgust at the targeting of Jewish children. This is not a story that will cause embarrassment in the Islamic street. It will be accepted as a positive story! The Palestinian Arabs will characteristically dance in the streets at the news of Jewish children being terrorized. They would dance even more intensely had they been murdered. The politicians only talk peace while the truth says there is no peace.
Iran wants desperately to have an influence over the Holy Land. Right now the only instrument at hand is Hizb Allah, the army of god. These mercenary terrorists are the worst of the worst. In this particular instance they purposely targeted a Day Care School where they knew the youngest of Jewish Children would be present. Other Hizb Allah targets are school buses, and playgrounds. What a sick army of Allah they are! They should be called the perverts of Islam not the army of god. There are only one class of people who get a thrill out of terrorizing children, and Islam has put all they could find into Hizb Allah. Islam glorifies these perverts who would be jailed in any other culture in the world. It is hate for the Jews which blinds Islam to the truth.
I have seen many pictures showing how the adult terrorists use the Arab children as shields. It makes me wonder what they do to their own children when not trying to kill Jews? I only wonder how many perverted acts are perpetrated against Arab children by these perverts that are never reported? What do these perverts do in the dark? They seem to have no respect for children using them as human shields. What kind of sexual respect do you think they would have for these same children?
The God of the Bible has clearly always stood against any such kind of disrespect perpetrated against any children who dwell in the Holy Land. The causing of children to go through the fire of Molech sums up all child abuse conducted in the presents of God who is everywhere. The penalty is not only execution of the pervert, but expulsion of any who hide their eyes from such perverted acts. Ignoring Hizb Allah, or any of the other perverts acting in the name of Allah will bring down the wrath of God. The judgment on judgment day will fit every filthy act these perverts have ever committed against little children. Justice will be fierce as the Holy God of the Bible lets lose the full extent of His anger on this particular class of people. Perverts who prey on children will find the God of the Bible does not tolerate their behavior. There will be no excuses! There will only be wrath! Woe to Islam for supporting what God says is defiling perversion!

Seven Mortar Shells Today –
"and the World is Silent"
13:50 Dec 09, '04 / 26 Kislev 5765
Seven mortar shells were fired from PA-controlled areas in southern Gaza at Jewish communities this morning, and another two in the north. "The world is silent," dryly sums up the Katif.net website. No one was hurt in the rocket attacks.
Veteran Gaza resident Avi Farhan said today, "Following yesterday's miracle in which rockets were fired and hit a kindergarten in northern Gaza [no one was physically hurt – ed.], two more shells were fired at a neighboring town today.
"We expected that Arik Sharon and [Defense Minister] Sha'ul Mofaz would instruct the IDF to enter [PA-controlled] Beit Lahiya and instill some order. We're sure that if there were similar rockets on a nursery in Sderot, the IDF would have already been in action in these areas. But apparently the Prime Minister and the Defense Minister don't want to upset the Likud convention today, or possibly they don't want to intervene in the one-sided 'hudna' ceasefire [being talked about by the PA].
"In any event, as long as the shells only land on Jewish areas in Gaza, it's apparently OK not to respond."
Rabbi Yishai Bar-Hen, northern Gaza's regional rabbi, will light tonight's three Chanukah candles at a large menorah in Elei Sinai, at the spot where the most recent rocket fell.
Last night, four terrorists were sighted approaching the Israeli-Egyptian border from the Egyptian side. IDF soldiers opened fire, hitting at least two of them. Somewhat later, after midnight, an IDF force saw another terror cell approaching from the Gaza side, with the apparent goal of meeting up with the Egyptian smugglers. The Israeli force again opened fire, and verified hits against at least three of them.
It appears the new policy will be silence. All mortar and rocket attacks on settlements will be considered a necessary evil which will now be included as part of the peace plan. It will be a green light to the animals of Islam that they can have open season on the settlers. This policy will break down quickly because the animalistic terrorists do not have the discipline to just target the settlers. Once loosed, their lust for Jewish blood has no discrimination. They are all Jews whether liberal, conservative, or settler. The liberal politicians will soon find the beast they are releasing on the settlers will come back to bite them. It will be their own children who will die once the genie is let out of the bottle.
It amazes me how many bad things keep coming out of the Road Map. The desire to make it work seems always to effect the the good guys rather then the bad guys. It is not until the effects are felt by the political elites that resistance to the Road Map takes place. Mortars and rockets on the settlements are ok, but suicide bus bombings that take liberals as well as conservatives are not acceptable.
The animosity toward the settlers is not the first time that Jews meant evil unto their brethren. The story of Joseph should be remembered. How his brothers sold him into slavery. God took something meant for evil, and turned it into something for good. Joseph was used by God to provide for his brothers, and their families the sustenance they needed during the time of famine. Joseph not only saved his brother Jews, but he saved the rest of the gentile world of which they lived.
The Independent Fundamental Jewish Settlers may well be from where God draws the 144,000 Jews of Revelation. They also like Joseph are experiencing evil from their brothers. That which is meant for evil will be turned to good once God calls 12,000 Jews each living on the tribal lands of the original seed from the brothers of Joseph. What was meant for evil will become a light for the Jews first, and then the gentiles. These Jews will continue the testimony of Christ after the rapture of born again Christians out of the Apostate Church.

Four Israelis wounded by mortars in Gaza settlement
By Amos Harel, Haaretz Correspondent, and Haaretz Service
Four Israelis were wounded Friday afternoon in a Palestinian mortar attack on the southern Gaza Strip settlement of Neveh Dekalim.
A woman and child were lightly to moderately wounded and two men were lightly wounded. The four casualties were evaucated to Soroka Medical Center in Be'er Sheva.
In a separate incident, Palestinians fired a Qassam rocket Friday morning at the border fence separating Israel from Gaza south of the Sufa crossing. There were no casualties and no damage was caused.
Settlers clash with soldiers evacuating outpost
Police officers and Israel Defense Forces soldiers evacuating a caravan from the illegal West Bank settlement outpost of Nofei Nehemiyeh faced opposition on Friday morning from settlers at the scene.
According to police, settlers illegally brought the caravan to the site east of Ariel on Thursday.
The area was declared a "closed military zone" due to the settlers' opposition.
8 Mortar Shells Were Fired into N’vei Dekalim
14:55 Dec 10, '04 / 27 Kislev 5765
(IsraelNN.com) A total of eight mortar shells/rockets were fired into N’vei Dekalim during a twenty minute period. Two persons are listed in moderate condition and the remainder light. Three persons were transported to Soroka Medical Center in a military helicopter and one by ambulance. The remainder appears to be hysteria victims, possibility being treated and released on the scene.
Numerous Injured in Southern Gaza Mortar Shell Attack
14:19 Dec 10, '04 / 27 Kislev 5765
(IsraelNN.com) Magen David Adom emergency medical service officials report at least four persons have been injured in a mortar shell attack in the southern Gaza community of N’vei Dekalim. At least one of the victims appears in serious condition. Details to follow as they become available.
It did not take the Palestinians long to realize they could freely shell the Jewish settlements in Gaza. Here is the fruit of the gentile Road Map peace plan. It is now open season on Jewish settlers. Islam does not want them there. The gentiles don't want them there. The majority of secular Jews do not want them there. It seems only God wants the Jews to reposes their Promised Land! It is only a small remnant of Jews who have responded, and they have turned the world upside-down. They are not vicious animals like the Palestinians. They are peaceful family units following the open doors that the God of the Bible has provided for them. It is just this that causes the world to hate them. The press must now vilify them for standing in the way of the Two State Peace Plan. The Independent Fundamental Jewish Settlers must be turned into unreasonable animals while the Palestinians must be turned into honorable freedom fighters for this plan to go forward. Much of the world hates the Jews already so such spin is exactly what they want to hear. The secular Jews who compromise with the gentiles at every turn they will tolerate. Jews who are committed to the God of their fathers, and will not budge are beyond contempt.
This settler issue is going to be the news for the foreseeable future. Everything happening in the Holy Land seems destine to be tied to the settlers. The gentile Road Map will only work if the world can be convinced that the settlers are bad, and the Palestinians are good. It is these Independent Fundamental Jewish Settlers who must pack up their families, and leave their homes in the Holy Land while the mortar shooting Palestinians are given their land. This is how the peace of man works! God has a totally different plan based on good! His plan is to force all who resist His holiness to move right off the planet. Armageddon is God's answer to all evil plans no matter how they are spun! God's plan is to establish His Jewish King in the Holy Land, at Jerusalem, and on the Temple Mount. The Christmas season re-enforces that one never ending plan! It is evil mankind that must leave not the children of God.
A perfect Kingdom is coming soon. The only perfect King will rule! The Bible says He will bring peace through judgment and perfect justice. The bad people will be suppressed, and only good will be allowed. The lion will lie down with the lamb, and a child will be safe between them. This peace is beyond the ability of the politicians. It is the future for the Holy Land not the Road Map. It is near at hand.

Likud and Labor Join Together
By Mazal Mualem, Haaretz Correspondent
Likud and Labor negotiation teams met late on Saturday, after earlier the Labor Party Central Committee approved a measure that allows party leadership to enter coalition talks on forming a unity government with the Likud.
Representing Labor at the talks are MKs Benjamin Ben-Eliezer, Dalia Itzik, Haim Ramon and Peres' aide Yoram Dori. Likud is represented by Minister Tzipi Livni, MK Gideon Sa'ar and attorney Yoram Raved.
Labor MK Dalia Itzik said Friday that her party would insist on receiving key portfolios, like Education, National Infrastructure and the Interior Ministry.
Speaking to his party's central committee, Labor chairman Shimon Peres said, "The question that will stand before each of us in the coming six months or year is whether to hold elections, to hold primaries, or to take action to advance the peace process." According to Peres, party voters expect Labor to prefer the good of the country over "other things."
Peres said that the main reason Labor was joining the government was to advance the disengagement plan, adding that "if there will be no disengagmenet, Labor will leave the government." ....
I don't know how many of you realize what this shift in the Israeli government means? The largest conservative Likud Party had been in charge. Ariel Sharon was elected as the head of the Likud. He suddenly changed horses midstream with his withdrawal plan. He suddenly took the main platform of the largest Liberal Labor Party, and began promoting it as a conservative goal. The Likud split over this turncoat position almost causing the collapse of the government and new elections. What is happening this weekend is that the Liberal Labor Party is shoring up where the conservative Likud Party has pulled out. The government will continue, but with a strong liberal influence.
The Labor Party hates the settlers. The Labor Party is the anti-religious party in Israel. They are the modernists who revel in their secular self-determination. It is the Labor Party that has been trying to pass legislation to put all the Independent Fundamental Jewish Settlers who refuse to withdraw peacefully from their homes into concentration camps. Labor has proposed jail sentences for entire Jewish families should they resist the Two State gentile peace plan.
The Likud was never the friend of the Settlers, but at least they tolerated them. The Settlers kept their independence not flocking to any of the many political parties now part of Israeli politics. The settlers in general wanted to follow God not politics. It is probably why the Likud never saw any gain by supporting them during difficult times. Today, the settlers are being abandoned by all except God.
A modern miracle is in the making for those who want to watch. How the settlers of Yesha (Samaria, Judah, and Gaza) survive during an era when the majority of secular Jews hate them, the majority of Islam hates them, and the majority of the gentiles hate them. The entire world is coming down on only a little over 250,000 individuals who will not join. They are convinced that God has called them to occupy the Holy Land of their fathers. They have built their homes on the tribal lands of their fathers in expectation that God will keep His word about establishing a Jewish Kingdom. They know it can't be by their strength for they have no political power. It will have to be by the miraculous power of God that they continue. They have no friends in these times of the gentiles. Their survival can only be successful if the times of the gentiles ends.
I am convinced it will be from these settlers of Yesha that God will chose the 144,000 Jews from every tribe during the Great Tribulation. They are the Jews living on those lands settled by those original tribes. Who else would be qualified? These will be the Jews who build Ezekiel's Holy Jewish Temple on the Temple Mount (Ezekiel 40 - 48) under the direction of the Two witnesses of Revelation 11 during the first half of the Great Tribulation. This last Jewish Temple is the only Temple that will have a throne. It all falls into place, and the miracle is now in the offering!
. Ezekiel 43:7
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.

Arabs Continue to Bombard
Gaza With Kassam Rockets and Shells
14:15 Dec 12, '04 / 29 Kislev 5765
Close to ten mortar shells and 1-2 Kassam rockets have been fired at and exploded in Jewish towns in Gaza since last night – a follow-up to the eight shells that hit N'vei Dekalim on Friday.
No one was hurt today, though eight people were wounded on Friday, including one who was taken in serious condition to Soroka Hospital in Be'er Sheva.
In the northern Gaza community of Nisanit, just six miles south of Ashkelon, a youth club sustained significant damage from a mortar shell blast – one of four shells that hit the town today. No children were in the building at the time. Shrapnel of a Kassam rocket hit a car in northern Gaza today, severely damaging it; the driver, head of security in his community, was miraculously unhurt.
In addition, a shell hit Gadid last night, as did two in Netzarim. This morning, residents of Ganei Tal were asked to remain in protected areas following the fall of one mortar shell in their town. Shortly afterwards, another blast rocked N'vei Dekalim. Yesterday, one shell hit Rafiach Yam.
Seven-year-old Nechemiah Kirzenshaft of N'vei Dekalim was in his room on Friday afternoon, and a visitor from Belgium – an 18-year-old yeshiva student who came to distribute Chanukah donuts to soldiers – was in the home's adjacent living room. The windows of both rooms were open in honor of the unseasonably warm temperatures. Suddenly, a Palestinian-fired mortar shell exploded atop a shed in the next-door home, and shrapnel flew at the Kirzenshaft home. One light piece penetrated the jacket of the student; he didn't even realize it until he began to feel faint, and a subsequent search produced the wound.
Seven-year-old Nechemiah, however, was hit more seriously, with a large piece shooting through the window into his chest-stomach area. Both of the wounded victims were rushed to Soroka Hospital in Be'er Sheva. Nechemiah was operated on, and his condition is much improved.
Arutz-7's correspondent spoke with his sister today, and learned that her mother and another brother spent the Sabbath with Nechemiah in the hospital, while the rest of the family celebrated the miracle at home. "He suffered a direct hit, and is now fine," she said. "It's simply a miracle." She said that she has not seen Nechemiah yet, "except via the internet, on one of the Chabad/Lubavitch sites. Several Chabad people went to visit him last night..."
In response to a request to speak with her father, she said, "He's with the soldiers, spreading Chanukah cheer – donuts, candles, and the like. Business as usual!"
The army might finally be beginning to take action. In the army's first substantial response to the mortar shell bombardments in several weeks, IDF troops approached Khan Yunis on Friday, a city of 250,000 that borders most of the Jewish towns in Gush Katif. The troops limited their actions, however, to taking up positions around the city and shooting into areas from where mortars were fired.
"We will not accept this massive shelling, just as we do not accept the firing of Kassam rockets near Sderot," army sources said Saturday. The declaration came after weeks of protests from Gush Katif residents. The residents decried the army's limited response to the daily shelling of Gaza's Jewish communities - in contrast with the swift response to rockets fired on Sderot, a city within Israel's pre-1967 borders.
Following the Friday attack, Nechemiah's father Yigal decried the lack of IDF response to the constant barrage of mortar shells. "Jewish children are being abandoned because the army is afraid to act," he said, echoing the complaints of the entire Gush Katif community.
Despite the army's reaction on Friday, or possibly because of its limited nature, angry residents are ominously promising to "step up our fight against the incessant shellings on our town." They did not elaborate, but said that their reaction would "force the responsible elements to take action to immediately end the situation in which the blood of soldiers and residents is worthless."
The big test is coming quickly to the settlers of Gaza. How are they going to handle their abandonment by the rest of Judaism? Never had the Jews abandoned their own except for those Messianic Jews who became saved through Jesus Christ. Now, another class of Jews are being prepared for the chopping block. The majority of Jews who control the direction of Judaism must choose what they will do also. God is preparing the entire State for a major test. These Jewish settlers can't be categorized as anti-Jewish as has been done to the Messianic Jews. If anything, they have taken their Judaism to a higher level of participation. The secular liberal Jews are leading the attack. These liberal Jews want a government devoid of anything to do with God. The Independent Fundamental Jewish Settlers are bringing God into the political decision making, and the liberals hate them for this. The Settlers feel compelled to occupy the Promised Land! They will not budge on this single issue. The Land that means everything to the settlers means nothing to the liberal secular Jews who are prepared to trade it off for a bowl of red pottage. Along with the Land will go most of the city of Jerusalem, and the Temple Mount. They are all considered expendable for the phony gentile Road Map plan.
The liberal secular Jews want to be the voice for all of Judaism. They want a secular government that will have no religious overtones. They want a Jewish democracy that would tolerate a minority of token Arabs, but they want some certainty that Jews will always be the majority. They want the same for any religious Jews who may be part of their grand plan. The religious Jews must always be the minority with no voice over governmental decisions. The religious Jews must always be subservient to the secular government.
It is not God's plan to have a secular government, Jewish or otherwise, to have the final authority over the coming Kingdom. The only plan God will tolerate for the Kingdom is for all Jews to be submissive to Him in both religion and government. Democracy is not God's plan for the future of the Holy Land. God will be the only authority establishing both religious standards, and governmental law. The Bible will be the single book for both, and the LORD Jesus Christ will be Prophet, Priest, and King! As Prophet He will interpret the Bible correctly in every situation establishing the direction the Kingdom will go. As Priest He will administer the application of His shed blood providing a way between fallen man, and the Holy God of the Bible. And, as King He will be judge over all governmental decisions as to how the righteous law of the Bible will be applied to each individual living in His Kingdom. The majority will never be a factor in His Kingdom. Right always being dominant over wrong. Holiness always the rule over iniquity. Righteousness the only law that will ever have a voice in regulating human affairs. A perfect Kingdom is coming to the Holy Land, Jerusalem, and the Temple Mount. Many of the Independent Fundamental Jewish Settlers seem certain to be part of the coming Kingdom. How many of the majority of liberal secular Jews will survive is not as certain. What is certain is that all the liberal secular Jews will weep as did Esau when he realized he lost both the birthright, and the blessing!

From Rome to Judea
14:13 Dec 13, '04 / 1 Tevet 5765
Haggai Segal writes of a correspondence that was initiated by a left-wing author and was interrupted for 15 years, and that yielded fruit for Israel and the Jewish People.
"I fear that [extreme left-wing Israeli author] David Grossman won't like this story," writes Arutz-7's Haggai Segal in this week's edition of B'Sheva, "but it's true to life. One day, about 15 years ago, a letter from a Catholic country was placed in my mailbox. A 12-year-old girl named Gila wrote to me in good English that she is following 'with concern' the stormy events in our region. She had recently encountered Grossman's book 'The Yellow Wind' – the preparatory document of the first Arab intifada – and could barely get over her sorrow and frustration. Grossman tried to convince his readers that the Jewish settlers were the bad guys in the Judea and Samaria story, but she actually felt that the opposite was true – and decided to make contact with them. I was mentioned briefly in the book, not necessarily complimentarily [Segal was a member of the first Jewish 'underground,' in the 1980's – ed.], and so she turned to me.
"I sent her a letter in reply, including – at her request – a photo of the community of Shilo. Gila then thanked me in return mail, and for a while we continued sending letters on and off, until I tired. After all, as a writer, my audience was more focused on Hebrew-speakers than on Catholic girls from abroad, no matter how much she loved Israel and settlers – which she did.
"But Gila didn't get tired. A month ago, I suddenly received a call from her, and she told me that she now lives in a Yesha community near Jerusalem, and that she is in the midst of an Orthodox conversion to Judaism. She still doesn't know Hebrew, but she is most optimistic, and is more convinced than ever that the settlers are right. She is careful about daily prayers and eating only Kosher, is modestly dressed like a young observant Jewish woman, and gratefully remembers Grossman. After all, he placed several tiles along her path from Rome to Jerusalem."
Here is the villain! One of those terrible Independent Fundamental Jewish Settlers. She is unique with gentile roots, but like Rahab and Ruth who were both part of the linage of David the King and the LORD Jesus Christ has become Jewish through and through. The greater number of these settlers come from Jewish roots, but there are a few like Gila who are of gentile stock. They all have an inner desire to be part of what God is doing in the Holy Land. They come with conviction seeking to accomplish something pleasing to God. They place themselves in harm's way with an unexpected innocents. They are not a whiskey drinking rabble defiant of any governmental control, but rather a group of individuals seeking purity in both dress and behavior. They are not trying to force their values on the world. They just live their own lives individually seeking what is wholesome and good by anyone's standard.
These are those terrible people who defy the will of the peacemakers. They stand in the way of the gentile Road Map. A Two State solution is not possible as long as these Jews live on the land the world wants to give to the Palestinians. They are a thorn in the side that the world is determined to remove. The problem is the world is wrong! God knows real peace is beyond the grasp of depraved mankind. Only a redeemer can bring a lasting peace, and for that redeemer to come the Jews must be back occupying the Promised Land!
Dark days have confronted the Jews in the past. It was God, and not their wits that delivered them. The dark days in Egypt produced some of the greatest miracles ever recorded as God delivered His chosen people from bondage. The sad testimony of that generation was that they accepted the deliverance, but rejected the Redeemer. An entire generation died in the wilderness while God prepared a new generation to occupy the Promised Land. The Land of their redemption! Today, another generation of Jews have accepted the deliverance, but rejected the Redeemer. That is about to change! The Book of Revelations reveals Two Witnesses, and 144,000 Jews from every tribe will be the first to find their Redeemer. A movement back to the Bible will take hold among these Jews. They will see the importance of a literal interpretation. They will see Leviticus, the Temple, the altar, and Calvary all coming together in their generation. They will come to their Redeemer with all their heart, all their soul, and all their might. I am personally convinced that out of the settler movement will come the majority of these chosen Jews. Some will have gentile roots, but all will be Jewish through and through. It will be a new dispensation. The dispensation of the Kingdom Age.
Redemption and the Holy Land are tied together in the Bible. Redemption of the land, makes redemption of the soul understandable. God created man with a pure soul free from sin, but in Adam that purity was lost. Since that first sin all men inherit a fallen nature. We need redemption! We need someone to intervene with the power, and authority of a kinsman redeemer as Boas was to Ruth. The LORD Jesus Christ came to fulfill the roll of kinsman redeemer. The price for our redemption from sin was nothing short of His life giving blood. Calvary was the altar upon which the redemption for sin was accomplished. The price beyond measure was paid. Friend, are you under the blood? Have you asked this Christ of the Bible to save your soul? There is no other way to salvation! There is only one Redeemer! All who come to Christ are called a part of His bride so intimate is the relationship. Jesus loves lost sinners. He offers redemption freely. Won't you come to Him today?

Israel has to be part of non-proliferation pact for real peace in region : El Baradei Dubai, 13 Dec.04 (WAM) - The Director General of the International Atomic Energy Agency, Dr. Mohammed ElBaradei, today stressed that Israel -- which is currently not part of any global non-proliferation pact - needs to be included in such a group for peace to have any chance in the Middle East.
"In the context of peace in the Middle East, Israel has to be part of weapons of mass destruction free area. This has to run parallel to the peace process. There should not only be land-for-peace, but security-for peace approach," ElBaradei told delegates at the Arab Strategy Forum, which opened at the Madinat Jumeirah in Dubai. The three-day forum runs till 15th December.
In his address on the third session on 'Security in the Arab World in 2020', ElBaradei pointed out that global "threats are becoming more complex and much more invasive and need to be addressed at the national, regional and international level." He pointed to six main forms of threats: economic and social, internal conflict, terrorism, international crime, interstate conflict and weapons of mass destruction (WMD). "All of these exist in the Arab world and many exist in extreme, such as poverty. We do have a problem on our hands and we have to acknowledge that." ElBaradei said the world does not only have to address terrorism with coercive measures, but has to address its root causes.
"All have to share in the responsibility to protect each other. No country - no matter how powerful - is invulnerable.
We need to protect each other to protect ourselves," ElBaradei said.
Session moderator, Dr. Abdulkhaliq Abdulla, Professor of Political Science at the UAE University, pointed out that the security situation in the Arab world today is more complicated than the political situation. The region is the most volatile in the world, most active militarily. "It is rich in oil, but poor in stability and peace." In response, General Wesley Clark, Former Supreme Allied Commander of NATO and Former Commander-in-Chief of the US European Command, urged the Gulf countries to enter into security alliances with the USA and European Union. ...
I fully expect the Middle East will become a nuclear free zone. I'm expecting Israel to allow the international community take control of their nuclear facilities. It will all be part of the coming phony gentile peace plan that will lead the Islamic world into a final invasion of the Holy Land. Ezekiel 38 &v 39 is a prophecy waiting fulfillment. The lands settled by the grandsons, and great grandsons of Noah mentioned in Ezekiel 38 & 39 are now Islamic. It is no little thing that Ezekiel would go all the way back to the times of Noah to describe this coming invasion.
37 But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
Bible scholars have long recognized that all these coming prophetic events are tied to the return of the LORD Jesus Christ. Another great transition in Biblical dispensationalism is about to take place. A change as great as when Christ came the first time, and the Church dispensation was ushered in. Today, we are on the verge of the next Biblical dispensation called the Kingdom Age. It will be centered in the Holy Land, at Jerusalem, and on the Temple Mount.
Ezekiel takes us back to the days of Noe (Noah) when he identifies those nations that will be part of the coming invasion of Israel. Names that are only mentions rwo times in the Bible. The first is in the Genesis record of these xlose relatives of Noah. The second is in the Book of Chronicles where the record is repeated showing how meticulous those records were kept over the years.
Gog, Magog, Meshech, Tubal, Togarmah, and Gomer are the grandsons and great grandsons of Noah. Gog, Magog, Meshech, Tubal, and half the tribe of Gomer all went North across the Caucasus Mountains from the peak called Ararat. Togarmah and the other half of Gomer went South settling in the plains under the Caucasus. The same Caucasus Mountains run between the Caspian and Black Seas, and have forever been a natural barrier separating the North from the East as world history progressed. Through most of my lifetime they separated Turkey (East) from the USSR (North). Today with the collapse of the USSR it is Islamic dominated people who have claimed their independance. Countries like Georgia, Chechnya, etc, are all seeking to lead their Moslem brothers into some great Islamic Federation north of the Caucasus.
This Islamic invasion of Israel would never take place as long as Israel has nuclear deterrents. The open door invitation to Islam can only be made if the Middle East becomes a nuclear free zone. I believe the Jews are going to find putting their trust in the international community rather then God will be a great mistake.

Key militants reject Abbas' call to end armed attacks
By Arnon Regular, Haaretz Correspondent, and Haaretz Service
Key Palestinian militant groups on Thursday rejected a call by moderate leader Mahmoud Abbas to end their armed fight against Israel, saying they were not bound by his authority and attacks would continue
Members of Islamic Jihad and Al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigades, an armed group within Abbas' own Fatah movement, rebuffed the demand in a taped joint statement.
"Calls by some Palestinian persons to stop the armed uprising are totally rejected ... These statements are not binding on us," a masked gunman said on the video.
It also claimed joint responsibility for an attack on Wednesday on a Jewish settlement in Gaza.
"The blessed intifada will continue, both on its military and popular lines. No one, however senior or at whatever level - Palestinian, Arab or international - will be able to stop it," added the gunman, wearing an Islamic Jihad headband.
A top Islamic Jihad official, in a statement on the group's Web site, said it was not the right time to give up arms.
"Resistance factions have the right to keep their arms as long as occupation exists and as long as Zionist aggression continues on Palestinian land," Mohammad al-Hindi said.
The Islamic Jihad remarks echoed the stance of the largest militant faction, Hamas. It says its campaign is legitimate self-defense against Israel Defense Forces strikes and incursions in the West Bank and Gaza.
Hamas rejects claim use of weapons must end
A Hamas spokesman dismissed remarks made by Abbas, who said Tuesday in an interview with the London-based Arabic newspaper Asharq al-Awsat that the use of weapons in the four-year-long intifada was a mistake and should end.
Khaled Mashal, head of the Hamas politburo based in Damascus, said Hamas is not yet ready to accept a cease-fire with Israel. Mashal did say that a pan-Palestinian agreement for a cease-fire remains an option.
Abbas, who is expected to win the January 9 presidential elections in the Palestinian Authority, said Palestinians should resist the Israeli occupation of the West Bank and Gaza without resorting to violence.
It is important to "keep the uprising away from arms because the uprising is a legitimate right of the people to express their rejection of the occupation by popular and social means," he said. "Using the weapons was harmful and has got to stop.
Earlier this week, Defense Minister Shaul Mofaz said that if the Palestinians work to quell the violence, Israel could coordinate its planned withdrawal from the Gaza Strip and four West Banks settlements with the new Palestinian leadership, and that Israel would be ready to hand over West Bank cities now under Israeli control to the PA if it could guarantee law and order would prevail.
Abbas told the newspaper that Palestinian security is currently in a state of chaos. "Frankly, the Palestinian [security] apparatus needs discipline. There is security chaos, that's why were demanding and are seeking to unify the security apparatus," Abbas told Asharq al-Awsat.
There will always be security chaos with the Palestinians as long as they reject submitting to the coming Jewish King who will rule over all of the Holy Land. The issue with the Arab Palestinians is their rejection of the Bible. It is the same issue with all of Islam as well as almost all of this present generation. The more this generation faces the puritanical righteousness found in the Bible, the more they reject the coming again Jewish Messiah who is predicted to force His values on the entire society. It is not just the Palestinians who are rejecting the Biblical LORD Jesus Christ. Apostate Christianity will be quick to take up arms once they realize they have been rejected for their compromised religious practices. There will be no freedom of religion when Christ rules! All false un-Biblical religions will be forbidden. Only one Savior will redeem only those who willingly come to Him with all their heart, all their soul, and all their might. The masses that refuse will be judged. The LORD Jesus Christ will never compromise His holiness. He will protect His throne from all worldliness. A perfect Kingdom with the single, only, perfect King is coming to the Holy Land, Jerusalem, and the Temple Mount.
The Bible is very clear that when the puritanical King of kings comes, He will come with judgment. Biblical justice will become extremely important when this judgment is executed. It will not be the justice of any worldly international court. It will be the justice as revealed in the Bible called righteousness. It will be God's standards not the standards of men. Biblical justice has one overriding factor. What have you done with the LORD Jesus Christ in your lifetime? The provision for sin was sent to earth just as the Bible said would happen. The babe was born in a manger in Bethlehem. He willingly sacrificed Himself as the atonement for sin. The price of His own shed life-giving blood paid the price for the judgment on sin. Salvation's plan was offered freely to any who would submit to this Savior. To reject this Christ is to reject everything about God, and results in God rejecting you when judgment comes. It is one thing to stand like a man, and take the eternal punishment due. It is a much worse thing to reject the love of God to His face when grace and mercy come together in the LORD Jesus Christ! The issue becomes even more personal when provision has been made for sin, and men spit at what Christ has done.
Judgment is tied to redemption. Judgment is tied to righteousness. The entire Bible is tied to Zion. It is the place where judgment will be meted out by the coming again King of the Jews. He is coming again not as the suffering Savior, but as the conquering King. Submitting to Him will not be optional. Judgment always was, is, and ever will be the only alternative. It is wise to fear the name of Him who is coming again to redeem Zion.
12 Kiss the Son , lest he be angry, and ye perish from the way, when his wrath is kindled but a little. Blessed are all they that put their trust in him.
Peace will never come to the Arabic Palestinians until they can submit to the coming Jewish King. Their destruction is as sure as their hate for the Jews of the Holy Land. The righteous God of the Bible has chosen the Jews to again be center to His plans for the next dispensation. All who resist will be judged. Judgment will be on the basis of their rejection to the revealed will of God as recorded in the Bible. The Biblical Christ will demand this obedience when His Kingdom comes.

EU pleased Palestinians pursue peaceful post-Arafat transition
By The Associated Press
BRUSSELS - European Union leaders praised Palestinian authorities Friday for pursuing a peaceful transition of power after the November 11 death of Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat.
In the draft of a statement to be issued after a two-day EU summit, the Europeans urged Palestinians and Israelis to "maintain their current positive and cooperative attitude" in the wake of the death of the former Palestinian leader.
The European leaders, closing a two-day summit, reiterated Europe's financial and other support for Palestinian presidential elections in January.
"The EU will support the electoral process financially, technically and politically and its observer mission ... will help to verify" voting is democratic, free and fair, they said in the draft statement.
They underlined their commitment to the road map peace plan - drafted by
the EU, the United States, the United Nations and Russia - which foresees an independent Palestinian state living side by side with Israel.
The Europeans said they were ready to "support an Israeli withdrawal from the Gaza Strip and part of the northern West Bank as a first step in the overall [peace] process."
5 Palestinians die in Gaza tunnel collapse
By Arnon Regular and Amos Harel, Haaretz Correspondents, Haaretz Service and Agencies.
Israeli and Palestinian rescue forces were cooperating Friday in their search for three Palestinians declared missing after a weapons-smuggling tunnel collapsed along the Gaza-Egypt border overnight, killing at least five Palestinians who were trapped inside, Israel Radio reported.
Elsewhere in the Gaza Strip, at least three Palestinians, apparently militants, were killed in an Israel Defense Forces raid aimed at ending mortar and rocket attacks.
The IDF allowed Palestinian ambulances and rescue workers to get to the scene of the tunnel collapse, which is usually off-limits to Palestinians. Rescue forces extricated the bodies of the dead Palestinians from the tunnel, the radio said.
The tunnel, which is located between an IDF base and the south Gaza area of Rafah, collapsed late Thursday, but neighborhood residents only discovered the gaping hole that remained of the tunnel on Friday.
Meanwhile, three Palestinians were killed and several were wounded in the Khan Yunis raid, Army Radio quoted Palestinian sources as saying. The IDF said troops wounded or killed six Palestinian militants in the operation.
One soldier operating in the raid suffered light to moderate wounds from an anti-tank missile fired by militants, the Itim news agency reported. An additional soldier was treated for shock.
IDF tanks and bulldozers moved into Khan Yunis early Friday morning to knock down buildings used as cover by militants, in an operation intended to reduce the number of mortar and rocket attacks from the camp at nearby settlements, the IDF said.
Hundreds of Palestinians fled their homes for fear the army would demolish them. The families sought refuge in a nearby hospital, a stadium and at the homes of relatives who don't live on the front line of fighting.
As the troops continued their raid Friday, Palestinians fired two Qassam rockets at the western Negev. They hit open areas and caused no injuries.
Palestinians also fired anti-tank missiles at the troops and detonated an explosive device near them, causing no casualties, Israel Radio said.
IDF commander Ofer Winter said the army would stay in Khan Yunis indefinitely.
"The forces are prepared to stay in the refugee camp for as long as it takes to secure quiet in the Israeli communities," he told Israel Radio, referring to Gaza Strip settlements and the Negev town of Sderot, which have been frequent targets of mortar and rocket fire.
In the last week, Palestinians have fired 50 mortar shells at settlements and military posts in the Gaza Strip, killing a Thai laborer and wounding 15 soldiers and a civilian, Israel Radio said. Eleven of the soldiers were hurt just a few hours before the raid began.
IAF destroys Gaza munitions workshop
The raid came several hours after an IAF helicopter gunship fired a missile at a Gaza Strip workshop which the army said was used by Palestinian militants to store munitions, destroying it but causing no casualties.
Palestinian witnesses said the target was a basement carpentry shop in Rafah refugee camp on Gaza's flashpoint border with Egypt. An IDF spokeswoman said the workshop contained mortar bombs stowed away by Hamas.
Troops also targeted a building hiding a tunnel in south Gaza apparently used to smuggle weapons, Israel Radio said.
11 troops lightly hurt by mortar fire
Also Thursday, 11 IDF soldiers were lightly wounded when Palestinians fired four mortar shells at an outpost near the Atzmona settlement in the southern Gaza Strip.
The wounded soldiers received initial medical attention at the outpost, and then were evacuated to Soroka Medical Center in Be'er Sheva.
Earlier in the day, Palestinians fired two mortar shells that landed in the hothouses of a Gush Katif settlement and one at an IDF post, causing no casualties.
Meanwhile, IDF troops shot dead a member of the militant Islamic Jihad who was attempting to plant an explosive device near a Gaza settlement on Thursday morning, sources from the movement said.
Well, what a wonderment is this European concept of peace? I wonder if the Palestinians will frame, and hang on the wall this latest pat on the back for a peaceful transition in the aftermath of the death of Arafat? Reality would indicate it is open season on the Jews while the Europeans give the Palestinians awards for peaceful coexistence. This is a strange concept of peace. I only wonder what the concept will be when the Palestinians get a State of their own? How will the Europeans evaluate peaceful transition then?
I suppose the Jews are the bad guys for clamping down on the Palestinian mortar brigades that have been left to indiscriminately shell the Gaza Settlements. I noticed it wasn't until some soldiers were injured that the IDF went into action. Apparently the injured settlers who were injured first do not count? This is one goofy peace plan as I see it.
The Palestinians construct arms smuggling tunnels, they mortar shell and fire rockets into the Jewish settlements, they send bombers into Jewish communities, they attack the IDF soldiers with anti-tank grenades, they build factories to produce weapons, and it is called a peaceful transition.
There is another kind of peace revealed in the Bible. It is based on justice and righteousness. It is centered in the Holy Land, in the tribal inheritance of Judah, at Jerusalem, and on the mountain of the LORD's House (the Temple Mount). All the nations will exalt the God of Jacob with this peace plan. There will be no freedom of religion. They will only exalt the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. The God of the Bible! Men will have to learn correct definitions for peace. They will have to learn God's way. They will need to study the Bible to know how God's law will be administered from Zion. Only then, in the last days, will real peace come to planet earth. Only then will all of mankind never learn war any more! It is to the house of Jacob, the Jews, that this peace is offered, and prophetically will be accepted. Jews living in the Holy Land free of all heathen influences.
Friend, those last days are almost upon us. The Jews are back in the Holy Land. The world is being turned upside-down. The God of the Bible is demanding the attention of this generation. His offer of peace goes deep. It goes right to the soul! It is peace with God. It is peace with self. It is forgiveness for all sin through the sacrificial blood of the LORD Jesus Christ. Won't you come to Him right now. Make peace with Him, and a changed heart is His reward. It is only complete surrender that will be accepted. It must be with all the heart, soul, and might. Those who come find they have gained eternal life. Sins are washed away never to menace again, and eternal peace with the Holy God of the Bible becomes reality.

Likud and Labor: It's A Deal
22:17 Dec 18, '04 / 6 Tevet 5765
The Labor party has accepted the Likud final offer and the two parties are expected to sign a coalition agreement Sunday.
The United Torah Judaism (UTJ) party continues to negotiate with the Likud over the conditions necessary for it to join the coalition as well.
Labor party chairman Shimon Peres used his position to finalize the deal after his party's chief negotiator, MK Dalia Itzik, antagonized Prime Minister Ariel Sharon into suspending talks after claiming the Likud was "groveling." Sharon's negotiators had offered Labor eight cabinet posts plus two more without portfolio, three deputy ministries and additional budget outlays for hospitals and education. Itzik had rejected the offer, demanding more cabinet posts and accused Sharon of leaving Labor the "crumbs."
Peres stepped in when it was clear that the Likud "had enough of Itzik's games," as one Likud party source described the situation.
The agreement will also give Peres a new and undefined title of "Deputy Prime Minister in the Prime Minister's Office" after Deputy Prime Minister Ehud Ohlmert protested against the suggestion that Peres replace him. Labor is set to receive the Ministries of Interior, Housing, Tourism and Communications, among others.
The Likud-Labor deal will give Sharon 59 Knesset supporters, still leaving a majority opposition of 61, which could theoretically bring down the government. Likud is banking on the UTJ party's MKs to fill out a majority and has also not yet given up on Shas.
UTJ is demanding more authority for religious affairs than what Likud is offering. It also wants a deputy ministry responsible for social affairs or housing and construction.
Former chief rabbi Mordechai Eliyahu is trying to convince the UTJ not to support the government's so-called disengagement program that would expel Jews from 21 communities in Gaza and northern Samaria. Sharon has demanded support for his plan as a pre-condition for joining the coalition, a stipulation that the Shas party has so far rejected. Sharon is to meet Shas party leader Eli Yishai Sunday in another effort to convince Shas to join the coalition.
Further economic concessions to UTJ and Shas will be difficult for Finance Minister Binyamin Netanyahu to accept. The deal with Labor will cost the government about 600 million shekels.
The new coalition leaves the anti-religious Shinui Party out in the cold after it left the coalition after voting against the proposed 2005 budget led Prime Minister Sharon to dismiss Shinui's five cabinet ministers.
Shinui chairman Yosef Lapid bitterly criticized the Labor-Likud deal, promising that "Shinui will wait in the opposition for elections and will settle accounts with both Labor and Likud."
The Meretz and Yahad parties also opposed the deal because of fear that Sharon will "buy" Labor in return for delaying the plan to transfer Jews out of their communities and hand over the Jewish land to Arabs.
The deal is set! What this means is that the secular conservative Jews have joined with the secular liberal Jews to ensure that the Independent Fundamental Jewish Settlers will never have any governmental, or political support when they resist being physically removed from their homes. It seals the determination by secular Jews to remove most, if not all, of 250,000 Jewish settlers now living in Yesha. Their land and homes will be given to the Arabic Palestinians to meet the gentile Road Map plan that will give away much of the Holy Land as a forever Palestinian State. This is the only plan with which this generation is confronting the God of the Bible. It will forever stop the establishment of the coming Jewish Kingdom promised in the Bible. It would force God to rewrite the Bible were that possible. It says very clearly that man has a better plan then God for the peace of the Holy Land and the world. In a very real sense it says "we don't need God!" "We don't need the Bible as a guide!" This challenge will not go un-noticed! The God of the Bible has already committed Himself by bringing the Jews back to the Holy Land in this our generation. It is God who opened the door for the Independent Fundamental Jewish Settlers to occupy His Promised Land.
The gentile world would be better to step aside rather then step in the way of the God of the Bible. This conflict will never be resolved until man willingly submits to God, and His wisdom as always being best. The Turks who rebuilt the old walls of Jerusalem were confronted with the Bible after they restored the East Gate of the city. They were shown how that unwittingly they had provided the way whereby Bible prophecy would now be able to come to pass. The Bible had always said the Jewish Messiah when He comes will enter the Holy City through the East Gate. The Islamic Turks immediately bricked the gate shut, and to double their efforts planted a Moslem cemetery right to the very lentil of the gate knowing no orthodox Jew would ever contaminate himself by stepping on a dead body. Today the gentile world with the cooperation of the secular Jews are bricking up the gate opened in 1948 when Israel became a State in the Holt Land. They are further determined to plant the dead bodies of the Independent Fundamental Jewish Settlers as a surety that God's Biblical plan will never be able to take place. I don't think it is going to work either for the Turks, for Islam, or for this generation of gentiles.

Rockets Bombard Negev City; Eight Wounded
11:58 Dec 19, '04 / 7 Tevet 5765
As the government prepares to quit Gaza – with no clarity as to how it will guarantee the safety of the Kassam-beleaguered western Negev – 11 Kassam rockets landed in Sderot yesterday and today.
Six people were treated in Barzilai Hospital in Ashkelon: two were lightly wounded by fragments, and four were treated for trauma. Several others were treated locally.
Sammy Moyal, principal of a religious school in Sderot, related how one rocket landed this morning on his car outside his house, precisely as he was about to drive off with his children. "My children were a bit late, but I decided not to push them too hard – I wanted things to go in 'ways of pleasantness,'" he said. "Then just as we were finally about to go out, I tarried another few seconds because my wife reminded me to take a coat – and then the rocket fell. My life and my children's lives were saved by these simple acts."
Rockets landed in or near the city yesterday morning, last night, and this morning. The city's army-operated Kassam-warning system did not work this morning when three rockets fell, though it did provide a warning shortly before 10 AM when yet another rocket landed in an open area. Over 400 Kassam rockets have been fired at the city of Sderot in the past two years.
Sderot Mayor Eli Moyal was originally very critical of the disengagement plan, though his voice has been somewhat muted over the past few months. "This is an evil plan," he told Arutz-7 this past April "- an act of folly of giving over parts of the Land of Israel to murderers and terrorists." Two months later, he said, "We knew all along that this was what was going to happen; the writing was on the wall. The rockets are fired not merely to land, but to kill... The State of Israel is acting unilaterally, carrying out illogical moves, and conducting dialogue with itself."
The IDF ended its two-day anti-mortar shell offensive in southern Gaza last night. Two mortar shell launching cells were liquidated in the course of the operation.
Neither Prime Minister Sharon nor security officials have been able to say that security for the Negev will definitely be improved following an Israeli withdrawal from Gaza. Several army generals, most recently Ex-Deputy IDF Intelligence Chief Gen. Yaakov Amidror last week, say that the only way to fight terrorism is for the army to physically be present in the area.
Nearly 5,000 Mortar Shells
Have Hit Gush Katif
12:56 Dec 19, '04 / 7 Tevet 5765
The mortar shell bombardment of Gush Katif is a critical and life-threatening issue, but many Israelis only learned the seriousness of it yesterday when reading Yediot Acharonot's Friday edition.
The paper, Israel's largest, published a long article about the nearly 5,000 mortar shells that have bombarded Gush Katif – the bloc of Jewish communities along Israel's Mediterranean Gaza Coast – for the past four years. For many readers, it was their first glimpse at a problem that has made life almost intolerable for thousands of Jews.
The main points of the article, as summarized by Cities of Israel spokesperson Susie Dym, are as follows:
* The "Avot" [Fathers] neighborhood in N'vei Dekalim, Gush Katif's largest community, is filled with mini-craters – each one the result of another mortar shell. It is no doubt the most shelled neighborhood in the history of the State of Israel.
* The capabilities of the mortar shells have increased over the past several months. The new models are larger and more exact, and they more frequently strike inside the towns - often near schools and nurseries. A regional council employee said, "Today's shells look like they came out of Israel's Military Industries."
* When the army receives an order to stop the shelling, it succeeds in doing so.
* N'vei Dekalim resident Meir Cohen said, "Our house was refurbished five times already; the windows and doors have been smashed countless times. Our neighbors, the Golans and Dahans, have been hit as well, and so have the Adam, Gross, Sokol, Yerimi, Zelinger and Alfasi families."
* Chana Adam, whose house has been hit no fewer than nine times, said, "I can't speak, look how I'm shaking, the fear has paralyzed my voice. It's a fear that I can't control."
* The Palestinian terrorists fire the shells mainly in the morning, when the children are on their way to school and kindergarten, and they target those buildings specifically.
* Ganei Tal resident Tova Bar-Shalom: "Can you imagine any community in Israel that would be hit 500 times, or 100, or even 20, and the IDF would barely react? We're almost up to 5,000 shells!" N'vei Dekalim alone, with 520 families, has been hit 2,500 times.
* Another resident: "Everyone knows that they have mobile launchers near mosques and in residential neighborhoods. But the IDF commander says that the army can't shoot into residential neighborhoods or mosques. We yelled at him, 'But our children are more important than [that]!'"
Cities of Israel, a grassroots pro-Land of Israel organization, calls for the bombardment of the Prime Minister's Office and IDF Chief of Staff with faxes and phone calls: "The message must be, 'Solve the problem, immediately and once and for all.'" The above information, the organization states, should be posted on bulletin boards in synagogues, schools and public areas, and distributed by email.
The Youth Council of Gush Katif is planning a "Youth Shabbaton" in Katif for two weeks from now, Jan. 1. The objective: "Not to remain apathetic in light of the declarations in the government and Knesset on weakness, lack of spirit, giving up and retreat. We are here! We will spread the message of settlement throughout the Land!" The event will include tours of the Katif area, lectures and classes by guests and residents, and a musical performance by "L'Chatchila." For more information, visit http://www.katif.net.
The news you will never hear. The truth about this phony Toad Map gentile peace plan. It is no secret, but it is not what the peaceniks of this generation want to hear. The peaceniks of the last generation wanted only to hear men like Chamberlain, and refused to listen to men like Churchill. One pontificated about pie in the sky peace while the other talked reality. The world listened to Chamberlain, and the result was WW ll. Now this generation is being told of pie in the sky through the Road Map. The truth is that all the evidence says the Palestinians, and Islam as a whole are preparing for war! The Pearl Harbor for the Holy Land is coming when Ezekiel 38 & 39 comes to pass. The Last Jihad Islamic invasion of the Holy Land is described in all of it's horrors. The prophecy describes a pompous Israel asleep at the wheel. It describes an Israel without security wall or fence. A sleepy majority dwelling at rest, and a feeling of security all brought about by their own wit. A phony peace that really was a lie.
A worse then WW ll is coming to planet earth. The end of gentile domination of the planet is what the Bible says is coming with the return of the LORD Jesus Christ. A Jewish Kingdom will be established by God that will never end. The reign of the gentiles began with the destruction of the First Holy Jewish Temple on the Temple Mount. Old King Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon had a dream after the fall of Jerusalem of which the prophet Daniel wrote, and provided the interpretation. It covered the entire reign of the gentiles with Nebuchadnezzar as the head of gold to the very end of gentile rule when the stone cut without hands would destroy the feet and toes. The entire gentile image will then crumble into dust, and a New Kingdom that will have no end replaces it. These things are all tied together with the building of the Last Holy Jewish Temple on the Temple Mount. Ezekiel 40 - 48 describes this yet to be constructed Temple. The Jews are back in the Holy Land . The Temple Mount is in their possession. All that is needed is a prophet like Haggai to call the faithful few to action. No power on earth will stop them once God gives them the mandate. It will not matter how unpopular such a proposal will be. It will matter not that the majority of Jews will see this as the end of the Road Map. It will matter not what Islam, or the rest of the gentile world may think. All that will matter is that the LORD Jesus Christ is coming again as the King of the Jews. They will not put Him on a cross this time. What they will do is bow down to His authority, or they will be judged. Crushed never to rise again by the stone made without hands.
Folks, it's all coming soon to the Holy Land, Jerusalem, and the Temple Mount. The phony gentile peace plan will go the way of the gentile nations. It will be mostly Jews with a few gentile converts who will enter into the Kingdom. The rest will be scattered as chaff in the wind. A new dispensation is upon us. A Jewish Kingdom dispensation. It is God's plan as written in the Bible. It is the only plan that will be victorious in the end!

Mortar Shell Hits Ritual
Bath, IDF Brass: Gov´t Tying Our Hands
02:20 Dec 26, '04 / 14 Tevet 5765
Terrorists continued to attack Gush Katif Saturday, while army officers revealed "there is a lot to do against mortar shelling, but our hands are tied."
Our frustration doesn't even begin to describe our feeling. Terrorists have learned the pattern of (our) maneuvers and this only encourages them to continue shooting," officers said on the Ynet web site operated by the Hebrew daily newspaper Yediot Aharonot. "This cannot go on for a long time," they added.
Arabs continued their non-stop barrage on Jewish communities in northern and southern Gaza Friday and Saturday, heavily damaging a building that houses a ritual baths (mikveh) at Netzarim. Mortar shells and Kassam rockets landed next to a synagogue and a house in Netzer Hazani as residents returned from a memorial service for their rabbis who was killed by terrorists two years ago. No one was hurt in the explosions.
A resident of another Gush Katif community was hospitalized Friday after being struck in the head by shrapnel from a mortar shell blast. His condition is stable.
"We have enough forces and are not lacking plans that can decidedly disrupt the gangs that launch mortar shells, but we have not received a 'green light.' The problem is that terrorists see that we move in for several hours, and they understand the maneuvers are not serious," a high ranking officer disclosed.
Jewish communities in southern Gaza include 18 in the Gush Katif area, adjacent to the city of Khan Yunis, and three in the north, between Gaza to the south and Ashkelon and Sderot to the north and west. Army forces are stationed in both areas, but IDF spokesmen have said that their main objective is to patrol the main roads, preventing terrorists from planting roadside bombs and bypass various walls and fences through the use of tunnels.
Col. Hirsch Expels Another
Student for Political Views
15:08 Dec 26, '04 / 14 Tevet 5765
A young cadet in the IDF Officers Training School has been expelled from the school because he said he would not fulfill orders, if given, to destroy Jewish communities.
The soldier was taking part in a class on democratic ideals and refusal. The issue arose during discussion about last year's "Pilots' Letter," in which a group of Israel Air Force pilots wrote that they would refuse to drop bombs on residential areas used by terrorists to hide. During the course of the class, the commander said that the army would not tolerate refusal under any circumstances, and that he himself would volunteer to evacuate Jewish communities in Yesha.
The soldier in question - a resident of Karnei Shomron in northwestern Samaria who serves in the Engineering Corps - was unable to remain silent, and said that there was no room for comparison between the two issues. He made it clear that he would refuse an order to take part in demolishing Jewish communities.
The soldier's father told the Yediot Acharonot newspaper, "My son said that the refusal of the pilots, who in the middle of a war announced that they would not fight, is not the same as ideological refusal to expel citizens from their homes and destroy Jewish communities in the Land of Israel. He said that the evacuation of communities is a badge of shame for the country, and that the comparison to the pilots who refused is inflammatory."
Col. Gal Hirsch, Commander of the Officers School, in consultation with other officers, spoke with the soldier, who repeated his claims and said that the disengagement plan "stands in opposition to the spirit of the Declaration of Independence." Hirsch then removed him from the course, for reasons of "unsuitability" and "unbecoming behavior."
The soldier's father, Vitaly Vovnoboy, who made Aliyah from one of the former Soviet Union countries in the late 1980's, told Army Radio that he is proud of his son. "An order to evacuate communities is a blatantly illegal order, which no one is allowed to fulfill. If they tell the soldiers to conquer the Knesset, would they be expected to fulfill that order?" He added that when he was in the Diaspora, "I dreamt for a long time that my son would serve in the Israel Defense Forces." The father also said, "I taught him that the IDF is a humanitarian, strong, and now he sees that the army... creates a situation in which soldiers and officers are afraid to sound their views and to ask questions. This is the true danger, not my son."
Col. Hirsch, in February of this year, also removed a cadet from an officers' course after he expressed harsh criticism of then-Chief of Staff Sha'ul Mofaz, now the Defense Minister. The would-be officer criticized Mofaz for the way he handled the October 2000 incident at Joseph's Tomb - in which soldier Madhat Yusuf bled to death while the army waited for PA forces to allow Israel to rescue him. Likud MK Ayoub Kara, who led an unsuccessful public campaign at the time to have the student reinstated, spoke with Arutz-7 today about Col. Hirsch's apparent tendency to oust students because of their political views, said,
"It's a terrible thing for an army to do. In this [latest] case, the student is not refusing orders, but merely expressed his view about what he would do if and when he faces the situation. To oust a student from the course because of his views?!"
Politics and political correctness have gone out of control in the Israeli political system. The conservative Independent Fundamental Jewish Settlers are now politically out of step. The great tragedy in Israel is that such policies cause death. It is very apparent that the message to the settlers is that they are expendable when it comes to the implementation of the gentile Road Map. The Jewish politicians have decided to make the Settlers the scrape goat for a gentile peace plan that will only fail in the end.
The God of the Bible is about to turn the tables on these secular politicians. They will be the sacrifice for the coming Biblical Jewish Kingdom. It will not only be these conscienceless secular Jews who will be sacrificed for the coming Kingdom, but the entire gentile dominance of the planet. This generation is about to learn that God is everything, and His creation is but a six day project. Imagine what this God can do throughout eternity future? Man has gotten too big for his britches. Man has willingly forgotten who the God of the Bible is!
Preparations are under way to intimidate any who might have convictions about removing whole families from their homes in Yesha. These are the families that responded to the Biblical call for the Jews to occupy the Holy Land. It has only been since the 1967 War that such Jewish occupation was finally possible. It was only a small group of independent Jews who responded. They should be commended for their faithfulness, but this generation is making sure they will be singled out for punishment. The Arabs can make all kinds of demands on the Holy Land with no direct references from the Koran to support their claims, but the God who promised the Holy Land to the Jews is of no account. The Bible that records the thousands of year old promises is ignored as if it does not exist.
The table is about to turn on this willingly ignorant generation. The truth about who the God of the Bible is will soon flood the planet. The irresistible God will soon confront the ignorance of this pompous generation. It is all about to happen in the Holy Land, at Jerusalem, and on the Temple Mount!

Tidal Waves Kill More Than 3,900 in Asia
Moved the entire island of Sumatra about 100 feet toward the southwest; first tsunami in the Indian Ocean since 1883...
Sun Dec 26, 9:03 AM ET
By LELY T. DJUHARI, Associated Press Writer
JAKARTA, Indonesia - The world's most powerful earthquake in 40 years triggered massive tidal waves that slammed into villages and seaside resorts across Asia on Sunday, killing more than 3,900 people in six countries. ...
"All the planet is vibrating" from the quake, said Enzo Boschi, the head of Italy's National Geophysics Institute. Speaking on SKY TG24 TV, Boschi said the quake even disturbed the Earth's rotation.
The U.S. Geological Survey (news - web sites) measured the quake at a magnitude of 8.9. Geophysicist Julie Martinez said it was the world's fifth-largest since 1900 and the largest since a 9.2 temblor hit Prince William Sound Alaska in 1964. ...
This quake should be a wake-up call to this generation. The death toll is expected to exceed 40,000. It is no coincidence that the nations effected are mostly Moslem. Now, I know all about the tower falling indiscriminately on the men of Christ's day, but there is also the knowledge of this generation of Islam challenging the God of the Bible for the Holy Land. The barbaric savagery that has become the emblem of Islamic displeasure is a world wide phenomenon. It should be no surprise that God would single out Islam for judgment. I suspect far worse is coming to the heathen who dwell in the isles.
It is through natural phenomenon that God often speaks to His creation. His blessings are well known with the spring rains. The balmy days always outnumber those of storm. His wrath is also recognized in the awesome power of the tempest storm. This earthquake has brought the fear of God to all who have experienced it. It is one disaster to Islam that can't be blamed on the Jews.
The intent of God is always to reveal His single plan of salvation through Christ. This world, and especially this generation have willingly ignored His eternal record as revealed in the Bible. The gentile Road Map has been designed to defy the future plan of God for the Holy Land, and the return of the LORD Jesus Christ. Hardly a word of opposition has come from the religious leaders.
The only hope for Islam is to reject the lies of the Koran. The vast Islamic hordes of the isles are doomed for all eternity unless they turn to the Christ of the Bible. There is no other way to salvation. They must come to the babe of Bethlehem or perish. It is the rejection of the Bible that will be the end of Islam.
A wake-up call has been extended to the heathen of the isles. The Jewish Kingdom promised to Jacob is coming to the Holy Land, Jerusalem, and the Temple Mount. It is this generation which has experienced the miraculous return of the Jews. It is this generation which must listen, or the judgment of the sword coming from the mouth of Christ will be their doom!

Quake rattled Earth orbit, changed map of Asia: US geophysicist
An earthquake that unleashed deadly tidal waves on Asia was so powerful it made the Earth wobble on its axis and permanently altered the regional map, US geophysicists said.
The 9.0-magnitude temblor that struck 250 kilometers (155 miles) southeast of Sumatra island Sunday may have moved small islands as much as 20 meters (66 feet), according to one expert.
"That earthquake has changed the map," US Geological Survey expert Ken Hudnut told AFP.
"Based on seismic modeling, some of the smaller islands off the southwest coast of Sumatra may have moved to the southwest by about 20 meters. That is a lot of slip."
The northwestern tip of the Indonesian territory of Sumatra may also have shifted to the southwest by around 36 meters (120 feet), Hudnut said.
In addition, the energy released as the two sides of the undersea fault slipped against each other made the Earth wobble on its axis, Hudnut said.
"We can detect very slight motions of the Earth and I would expect that the Earth wobbled in its orbit when the earthquake occurred due the massive amount of energy exerted and the sudden shift in mass," Hudnut said.
Another USGS research geophysicist agreed that the Earth would have got a "little jog," and that the islands off Sumatra would have been moved by the quake.
However, Stuart Sipkin, of the USGS National Earthquake Information Center in Golden Colorado, said it was more likely that the islands off Sumatra had risen higher out of the sea than they had moved laterally.
"In in this case, the Indian plate dived below the Burma plate, causing uplift, so most of the motion to the islands would have been vertical, not horizontal."
The tsunamis unleashed by the fourth-biggest earthquake in a century have left at least 23,675 people dead in eight countries across Asia and as far as Somalia in East Africa.
The tsunamis wiped out entire coastal villages and pulled beach-goers out to sea.
The International Red Cross estimated that up to one million people have been displaced by the natural calamity.
The Bible has always been in conflict with science when that science is skewed to explain away a six day creation. The billions of years this skewed science needs has taken another blow from reality. It is not until this day of global positioning that the truth can't be denied. The earth can change in a matter of seconds, not millions of years. Mount St Helens turned geology upside-down when a miniature Grand Canyon formed in a matter of a few hours. Not from water erosion, but from exploding pieces of glacier buried under the multiple layers of ash. The Tuttle River then flowed through the gap as the easiest way down the mountain. The river had nothing to do with the formation. Today, the land slants the wrong way for the Colorado River flowing through the great Grand Canyon, but all the books still say it was formed by the river over vast periods of time? This despite what was learned at Mount St Helens.
I suppose the only thing that does take millions of years is the pompous scientists to admit the truth. A God who created the world only thousands of years ago not billions will never be admitted by those who must justify their unbelief in the Bible. It would make them responsible to that God, and without excuse for denying the great salvation offered through Christ. A billion times a billion will never be long enough for the masses who want evolution rather then the Bible to ever acknowledge the truth. All eternity will not be long enough for them to admit they have sinned against the God of the Bible.
The awesome power of the God of the Bible has been forgotten. He says in the Bible He will roll up the entire universe like a scroll. Not over trillions of light years, but in a moment when it has finished serving His purpose. A new creation with a new heaven and earth is planned. The old system corrupted by sin will be done away. A new perfect creation will quickly come into existence. A new creation that will never be polluted with the fruit of sin. A perfect environment for those perfected through the blood of Christ. There will be no need for a sun because the God of the Bible will provide all that is needed. There will never be fear of natural calamities because sin will be no more!
34 And they shall teach no more every man his neighbour, and every man his brother, saying, Know the LORD: for they shall all know me, from the least of them unto the greatest of them, saith the LORD; for I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more .
35 Thus saith the LORD, which giveth the sun for a light by day, and the ordinances of the moon and of the stars for a light by night, which divideth the sea when the waves thereof roar; The LORD of hosts is his name:
Mankind does not deserve such a heavenly future. Mankind, if not changed first, would ruin such perfection in an instant. The Bible goes far beyond the sexually perverted Islamic paradise. It goes far beyond any religious concepts of man made utopias. It goes right to the heart of things in dealing with sin, and God's perfect sacrifice for the conquering of sin. It is the greatest story ever told, and it is all true. It is the story of the LORD Jesus Christ the Savior of all who come by their own free will. The price is free, but the requirement is that we come with all our heart, all our soul, and all our might.

Sri Lanka rejects Israel rescuers
Israel has cancelled plans to send a 150-person rescue mission to Sri Lanka after the devastated island objected to the military composition of the team.
The delegation - including 60 soldiers - had been due to set off on Tuesday to help after Sunday's tsunami disaster.
Instead, a smaller team will escort a convoy carrying emergency supplies, Israeli officials said.
Sri Lanka restored diplomatic ties with Israel in 2000, despite objections from the island's Muslim minority.
Neither side has officially explained the change of plan, although some reports say the objection came from Sri Lanka's military.
Sri Lanka Ambassador Diffa Digeratna is quoted by Jerusalem Post as saying that the change was due to the "the lack of accommodations in Colombo".
Israel's army had planned to send staff to set up field hospitals, including internal medicine and paediatric clinics, an Israeli army spokesman said.
Other Israeli agencies have sent emergency relief to Sri Lanka and other tsunami-hit countries.
Humanitarian organisation Latet sent a jumbo jet carrying 18 metric tons of supplies to Colombo, medical teams have been dispatched to Thailand and help offered to India, Haaretz reported.
A rescue-and-recovery team from the Jewish ultra-Orthodox organisation Zaka left for the region on Monday with equipment used for identifying bodies, as well as body bags.
Israel's foreign ministry has set up a situation room for relatives to track down hundreds of Israelis on holiday in the tsunami zone, who have not yet made contact.
No one from the country has yet been confirmed dead in the disaster.
On a day when President Bush is being maligned by the world for not doing more, and being skimpy with sending relief; the hate for the Jews comes into full light. Never has relief offered in a calamity been refused as has happened this day. Israel more then any other nation has become expert in dealing with calamity. Yet, their expertise is refused for no other reason then that they are Jews! As the world refuses Jewish help today, so also will it refuse help from the coming Jewish King. The great lesson coming out of this disaster now being recognized as one of the worst to hit the planet is that this generation hates the Jewish Christ of the Bible, and will single Him out for particular shunning. It is the rejection of Christ that brings the wrath of God upon mankind.
A generation that can't stand the Jews is a poor prospect for the coming Jewish Kingdom Age. The God of the Bible offers only one savior, and He is Jewish. The repulsive feelings stirred in the hearts of many will forever be their doom. It is not just Islam that hates anything Jewish. The entire gentile world is guilty. Even Christians are guilty of detracting from Christ's Jewishness. They would convert Him into a gentile. They are repulsed by His natural Biblical heritage. They hate the fact that He offers His coming Kingdom to the Jews. They have long refused to heed the words to the Jew first!
16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first , and also to the Greek.
This open rejection of anything Jewish is why the times of the gentiles is coming to an end. No matter what God may do to get attention focused on the Biblical Christ, this generation will rebel. It is a generation beyond repentance. God can't change because of who He is. His attributes are fixed. He is absolutly holy, and sin can't exist in His presents. It is man who must change, not God! It is man who must accept God's perfect sacrifice for sin, or perish.
This calamity only pictures the greater tragedy coming to this generation when dispensational change takes place. The LORD Jesus Christ is coming again as the King of glory. He is coming with justice and judgment. This world must bow the knee to this coming Jewish King, or perish! The lesson has been taught. It is now up to this generation to apply the Biblical truth to heart. The God of the Bible is about to overwhelm this world of sin. His judgment can't be resisted. He will not just effect a few hundred meters of beach frontage, but His judgment will extend to the highest mountains. There will be no escape! Without Christ they will all perish.

MAN WOUNDED IN VOLLEY OF GAZA MORTARS
IDF pull out of Khan Yunis, three Palestinians killed in fighting
In one of the heaviest attacks in the past four years of shelling, a barrage of 14 Palestinian mortar shells hit the Netzer Hazani settlement in the southern Gaza Strip on Thursday, wounding one man and damaging a house, the army said, according to Haaretz. One Palestinian was reported seriously wounded as Israeli forces returned fire. The attack came hours after Israeli forces pulled out of the southern Gaza township of Khan Yunis in a two week bid to stop terrorists firing mortars and rockets at Israeli settlements and army bases. Three Palestinians, at least two of them gunmen, were killed in exchanges of fire during that raid.
Israel mulling third party security at Gaza gateways
Israel will consider letting a third party take over security at Gaza Strip naval and aerial ports that the PA plans to set up after the disengagement plan is carried out, World Bank regional head Nigel Roberts told The Jerusalem Post on Wednesday. In the past, Jerusalem has refused any suggestion of allowing a foreign entity any on-land presence in the territories fearing an "internationalization" of the conflict.
Reality is again bringing to light how phony has become this gentile Road Map to peace plan. The moment Israeli troops pull back the Arab Palestinians let go with a barrage of mortar shells. The rhetoric may be all about peace, but the reality is that the Arab Palestinians are preparing for a long war of attrition. I'm convinced that this Palestinian war is intended to never end. Constant and continual torture of the Jews is how great the hate has become. These Islamic Arabs have seared their conscience to such an extent that peaceful coexistence is impossible. They have become savage beasts who can only rip and tear at their Jewish prey. They are beyond reason just as the beast of the field. They are ready for judgment because of their barbarian behavior. The culture is no longer able to repent. Only eternal condemnation is left for such depravity.
The record of UN peace keepers in Israel is appalling. They have watched with their hands in their pockets as terrorists openly attacked Jews from Lebanon. It is ridiculous to think such troops would be watchful for arms flowing into the Gaza once the eyes of Israel are removed. The sad part of all this is that it is going to be called peace. Anyone who talks about reality will be branded a rebel. The phony gentile peace of which Ezekiel predicts seems certain. The world wants peace in the Middle East even when the truth is there is no peace.
Islam is about to be convinced that Allah is greater then great when they see the Jews turn their security over to a none caring gentile peacekeeping force. They will be convinced Allah has opened the door to the extermination of all the Jews in the Holy Land while they did not even have to lift a finger. The desire for a phony peace will have blinded the world to the truth. The foolish secular politicians will have given Islam the plum for which they have long sought. The gentiles will sell out the Jews once Islam begins to move. Just as before the peacekeepers will stand by with their hands in their pockets. The Islamic hordes will swarm into the Holy Land in a three pronged mass invasion intended to surround the Jews with their backs to the Sea. It is then that the God of the Bible will intervene supernaturally, and utterly end all Islamic influence over the Holy Land forever. The door will open for the building of the Last Jewish Temple (Ezekiel's Temple) on the Temple Mount.
A greater calamity then the recent earthquake is about to overcome Islam. This past week's tragedy is only the opening round of what the God of the Bible is about to do in response to Islam's challenge to the Holy Land. The option is always open for Islam to submit to the coming Jewish King. Nothing is preventing Islam from accepting the will of God over the future of the Holy Land. It is the foolish animalistic resistance to God that brings calamity to the cultures of this generation.
The King of glory is coming again to the Holy Land, Jerusalem, and the Temple Mount. Men must step aside for the God of the Bible, or they will be swept away. There is only one true peace plan, and it is not the Road Map! The plan of God centers around the Prince of peace coming again to planet earth. There is nothing phony about this plan. There are no lies that need be swallowed to make it work. It unites religion and government into one perfect culture that will never end.
