IDF Returns to Netzarim

by Hillel Fendel

(IsraelNN.com) IDF tanks deployed on Sunday morning on the ruins of the Gush Katif town of Netzarim, preparing to encircle Gaza City just to the north. So reports Channel Two, based on civilian Arab reports from within Gaza.

The IDF’s presence on the road to Netzarim means that Gaza City is cut off from central and southern Gaza. Gaza City is the Hamas war and terrorism headquarters. It was also reported that IDF forces had taken up positions to the south, near the former Kissufim crossing, once used by Israelis to access their homes in the Gush Katif region.

Before Israel’s unilateral withdrawal from Gaza in the summer of 2005, the IDF would often divide the Gaza Strip into two or three parts, in order to prevent the free transport of weapons and terrorists from one place to another. This is apparently the objective of the present offensive, though the IDF is keeping close guard on the details of its war plans.

Thousands of IDF soldiers are now inside Gaza, in a ground offensive that began shortly after the end of the Sabbath. The IDF announced the objectives: “To deal a major blow to the Hamas networks, take control of the areas from which rockets are launched, and to strengthen our deterrence, in order to create a better long-term security situation.”

Dozens of terrorists were reported killed over the first night of the ground offensive, and 20 IDF soldiers were wounded in battle, including two seriously.

 

 

 

It should be clear to all that it was the withdrawal that opened the door to Hamas, and the present escalation of the conflict coming from Gaza. Had the Jews never withdrew, or if the Jews reoccupy Gaza the conflict will end. The Arab barbarians will lose their rocket launching platform, and peace under occupation will result. It has done Israel no good to unilaterally withdraw from the Gaza. The barbarians continued the propaganda that they are an occupied people after the withdrawal anyway. The barbarians do not want autonomy as long as they have Jews as their neighbor. What Hamas wants is the elimination of every Jew living in Israel. Only then would they be willing to say the Jewish occupation is over. It is not the Gaza, but the entire Holy Land where Hamas is fixed. The Jews are presented as inferior to the Arab masses. It is humiliating to have such subhuman masters. It makes Allah look weak, and ineffectual. Folks, it can only be full reoccupation that has any hope of bringing this present conflict to a peaceful solution. That of course will never happen under the present world political situation. The two state Road Map is the only acceptable route the world politicians will accept, and that makes for an impossible solution. The hate of Islam against the Jews will never allow peaceful cohabitation in the Holy Land. One, or the other must go! The Bible says it will be Islam!

Folks, this entire planet must recognize the futility of rebelling against the God of the Bible. The rebellion against His only begotten Son is about to be ended. Christ came as a Jew, and as a Jew He will rule this planet in perfect righteousness. The elimination of Islam will be the first step in breaking the rebellion. The last step will be Armageddon where the times of the gentile rule of the planet ends. Only those humbled through the returning Jewish Messiah will enter into the next Age of the Kingdom. The rebels will all be judged, and will abide under the wrath of God for all of eternity future because they rejected the LORD Jesus Christ.

Friend, what about you? Are you in rebellion against Christ? Have you refused His grace that would give you forgiveness of sin? Have you despised the cross where the atonement for your sin was accomplished? Your rebellion is without excuse. Love was offered, but you selfishly refused. The same wrath God has for the blasphemous Islamist barbarians is going to abide on you for all eternity if you refuse to repent. Friend, come to this Christ of the Bible, and let Him love you as He desires. The alternative is far too terrible to contemplate.

 

Luke 13:27-30

27 But he shall say, I tell you, I know you not whence ye are; depart from me, all ye workers of iniquity.

28 There shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth, when ye shall see Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, and all the prophets, in the kingdom of God, and you yourselves thrust out.

29 And they shall come from the east, and from the west, and from the north, and from the south, and shall sit down in the kingdom of God.

30 And, behold, there are last which shall be first, and there are first which shall be last.

KJV

By the Numbers
 

On Dec. 27, Israel began "Operation Cast Lead" to stop Iran-backed Hamas in Gaza from continuing its decade-long campaign of attacking Israeli civilians with thousands of rockets, missiles and mortars. Following are facts and figures released by the IDF and related to Israel's decision to launch "Operation Cast Lead":
9,400+   Rockets and mortars fired from Gaza since 2003.
3,200+   Rockets and mortars fired from Gaza in 2008.
6,500+   Rockets and mortars fired from Gaza since Israel withdrew from Gaza in 2005.
543+     Rockets and mortars fired from Gaza into Israeli territory during the ceasefire from June
            19 to Dec. 19, 2008.
28         Deaths caused by rockets and mortars fired from Gaza into Israel since 2001, including
             Israelis, Palestinians and foreign workers.
1,000+   People in Israel injured from rockets and mortars fired from Gaza since 2001.
20,000   Hamas and allied militiamen Israel is targeting as part of "Operation Cast Lead."
750,000  Number of Israeli civilians that Hamas rockets can now reach.
15       Seconds Israelis have to get to a bomb shelter once a warning siren has sounded.
8      Years that Israel has been hit by rockets and mortars from Gaza.

 

 

 

This is a one-sided view of why Israel re-occupied the Gaza Strip. Justification on the part of Israel can't be denied. Islam for it's part is putting all the emphasis on the fact that the Jews control the Holy Land in spite of the withdrawal. They claim the Gaza withdrawal did nothing, and that the Jews are still the occupying force over the Arabs living in the Strip even though the Arabs have an autonomous government dedicated to the destruction of Israel. It can be argued that any hope for peace in the Strip ended when the Arabs voted in the Hamas government which has sworn to never make peace with the Jews. It was a vote for perpetual war between the Jews, and the Arabs living in Gaza. Only the destruction of the Jews, from the Arab perspective, can bring peace to the Holy Land. This is the reality on the ground, and it is no surprise to God. He knew this would be the case when He began this miraculous Third Exodus. God knew the Arabs living in the Holy Land would hate the Jews unto their death. God knew that the Arab heart would only harden as He began the process of establishing the Jews in the Holy Land once again. Much like old Pharaoh of Egypt the Arabs must either submit to the will of God, or perish.

Be certain the more God forces His will on the Arabs of the Holy Land, the more hard their hearts are going to get. The more the God of the Bible forces His will on the Holy Land, the more Allah, and the blasphemous Koran will fade into oblivion. God is preparing to end the times of the gentiles, and it will begin with Islam as the Holy Land again is raised to the center of all God is doing. A 7 year period of Great Tribulation will end in Armageddon. The back of gentile rule over planet earth will be broken forever.

Today, God is hardening the hearts of the Arabs. He will continue hardening the hearts of all gentiles until Armageddon. This is the generation that must accept the return of the LORD Jesus Christ, or perish! It is the will of God as revealed in the Bible. Friend, as God forces Christ on you, what is happening to your heart? Is His righteousness driving you to repentance, or does it only harden a hardened heart even more? Dear friend, I pray you will repent of your sin, and ask the LORD Jesus Christ for forgiveness. Only He can save. Only you can come in humble submission to His offer of grace. Won't you come to Christ this day, and live.

Matthew 11:28-30

28 Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.

29 Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.

30 For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.

A Tense Quiet in the North Follows Lebanon Rocket Attacks
 

by Avraham Zuroff

(IsraelNN.com) The Lebanese government has joined the IDF in looking for the source of Thursday morning's rocket attacks into Nahariya, albeit on different sides of the border, as ministers say they are not interested in an escalation of military action against their country.

Northern Israeli citizens, prepared for the eventualities of a replay of the 2006 Second Lebanon War, were nevertheless surprised Thursday morning due to the air raid sirens’ failure to sound.

Although the Home Front has not ordered the closing of schools, the Nahariya and Shlomi municipalities have decided to cancel classes until further clarification of the situation.

Lebanese Rocket Attack Anticipated
Intelligence head Amos Yadlin warned during Sunday’s cabinet meeting that it is anticipated that Lebanese terrorist organizations would engage in a rocket attack against Israel.

At the Cabinet meeting, Brigadier-General Yossi Beidatz, head of the research department for military intelligence, stated, “Hamas has not raised the white flag in the past and wants to remain in power.” Beidatz added, “Nasrallah is in a dilemma. What would Israel do if firing from the northern border would begin? He does not want to enter in a fight with Israel. In contrast to Hizbullah, which is on high alert, there are other extremist organizations in southern Lebanon who are bound to fire towards Israel – and there is a strong concern for Israeli reactions.”

Hizbullah secretary-general Hassan Nasrallah this week sent a threatening message towards Israel from his Beirut stronghold that the 2006 war in Lebanon would be nothing compared to what “awaits Israel if it opens a second front.” In the Hizbullah leader’s videotaped address, Nasrallah mocked the Israeli government and stated, “I say to Olmert, the failed leader who was defeated in Lebanon – you can never beat Hamas and Hizbullah.”

Jacky Sabag: Replay of Second Lebanon War
Nahariya’s mayor, Jacky Sabag, in an interview with Channel 2 news Thursday morning, stated, “We have returned to what happened two years ago. There is a situation of uncertainty.” The Nahariya mayor ordered schoolchildren to be sent home and that the public bomb shelters be opened.

Unlike the schools in Nahariya and Shlomi, Kiryat Shemonah residents are remaining in school. However, southern Lebanese educational authorities are not taking any chances. In anticipation of Israeli military action against Lebanon, school has been canceled in southern Lebanon.

Sources from Hizbullah have emphasized that the rockets are very old and not the type that the guerrilla group would use to attack Israel.

Nahariya police said they had been prepared for the probability of a rocket attack since Operation Cast Lead began. One police officer commented, “It was a miracle that the rocket landed on the roof of the old age home.” The rocket pierced the roof, causing a meter-diameter opening, and exploded in a bathroom that was unoccupied at the time. Many water pipes were shattered from the explosion. The facility sustained extensive damage, and all its residents are to be evacuated from the building. Two residents of the old age home were lightly injured from the rocket attack.

The security situation in the north remains tense and many residents were sure that the loud noises they heard were the explosions from additional rocket attacks aimed at Israel. Nahariyah residents experienced 600 Katyusha rockets exploding during the 2006 war in their otherwise quiet seaside town.

An air raid siren mid-morning renewed the residents’ fears and reawakened past traumas for many. At least two Galilee residents were treated for shock. Police later reported that the false alarm was a result of supersonic booms from aircraft.

 

 

 

 

I agree all that will result from "Cast - Lead" will be a repeat of the 2006 Lebanon War which resulted in the first defeat of the Israeli Army. Behind all the rhetoric is the liberal politicians trying to save face, and salvage the coming shellacking they are facing in the February elections. It is all political folks, and will be terminated long before any real destruction of either Hamas or Hizbullah takes place. The gentile world does not want, and will never stand for a Jewish Holy Land. The gentiles want the worst culture in the world to forever remain in the Holy Land continually torturing the hated Jews. The hope is the Jews will some day realize that they must find another homeland giving the Holy Land to Islam. I am going to tell you the truth that unless "Cast - Lead" leads to the bulldozing of all the blasphemous Islamic shrines on the Temple Mount it will accomplish nothing.  This miraculous Third Exodus has stalled at the Temple Mount. It should have been bulldozed in 1967, but the Jews acquiesced to the gentile demands that the Islam remain in control of the Mount. The building of the next Holy Jewish Temple went on hold, and the Jews have suffered ever since.

None of this was a surprise to the God of the Bible. Islam has grown as a force of evil in the world, and not even 911 was able to turn the world into resisting Islamic control over the Holy Land including the Temple Mount. The politicians know deep down that should the Jews build their Temple their (the politicians) days of rule will end. The meek and the humble would replace them, and they would be exposed and judged as the evil men and women that they are. The Bible is clear that the gentile politicians will never peacefully relinquish their power to a Jewish Messiah. The LORD Jesus Christ can't come again as the helpless babe of Bethlehem. This time He must come as the undefeatable LORD of hosts who will put down all evil resistance to His righteous and holy rule.

Psalms 2:9-12

9 Thou shalt break them with a rod of iron; thou shalt dash them in pieces like a potter's vessel.

10 Be wise now therefore, O ye kings: be instructed, ye judges of the earth.

11 Serve the Lord with fear, and rejoice with trembling.

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.

KJV

Friend, it is better to come to the Christ of Calvary who sacrificed His life that the lost sinner could be saved then to face, the LORD of hosts, the coming King of the Jews. This gentile ruled planet is about to be turned up-side down. The King is coming! A Jewish Kingdom is clearly coming next according to the Bible. A Kingdom ruled by a perfect King. Absolute holiness and righteousness will be imposed on all for the next 1000 years. A Holy Jewish Temple will daily shed blood on the altar in remembrance of Calvary. The Holy Jewish Messiah will sit on His throne in the midst of the Holy of Holies administering righteousness upon the entire planet. Friend, only the born again will enter into this coming Kingdom. Only those with a circumcised heart will be fit to enter into what the LORD of hosts will accomplish through the coming judgment. Friend, I pray you will come to Christ before you have to face His wrath. Won't you humble yourself, and repent of your sin. Won't you come to this Christ of the Bible, and live.

 

Psalms 24:6-25:1

6 This is the generation of them that seek him, that seek thy face, O Jacob. Selah.

7 Lift up your heads, O ye gates; and be ye lift up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in.

8 Who is this King of glory? The Lord strong and mighty, the Lord mighty in battle.

9 Lift up your heads, O ye gates; even lift them up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in.

10 Who is this King of glory? The Lord of hosts, he is the King of glory. Selah.

Armored Corps Deepen into Gaza
 

(IsraelNN.com) IDF Armored Corps went deeper into Gaza City on Sunday. Armored forces stationed in Netzarim advanced on Saturday towards the Sheikh Agilin neighborhood on the Gaza coast, south of the port. In a battle between the IDF and armed terrorists that lasted five hours, at least 50 terrorists were killed.

A senior officer of the armored corps stated Sunday that his troops have attained great success in the fights with the terrorists, in wounding terrorists, identifying structures and arms caches. Although the route was booby-trapped, the IDF’s operation along the Gaza coast was successful. “We are still encountering explosive devices and booby traps in the area,” the senior IDF officer stated.

 

 

 

 

Hamas has only one battle plan, and that is to trap and kill as many Jewish soldiers as they can. It is not a plan to win, but rather a plan to torture the Jews forever. It is not a plan aimed at bringing about peace. It is a plan of perpetual torture of the hated Jews whom Hamas has no intention of ever living together in peace. Hamas does not care how many incursions into the Gaza are made by the Jews. All that matters are that these incursions give them the opportunity to spring their traps that they can't set up outside the Gaza. Hamas must provoke the Jews to come into their web in the Gaza. This is why the rocket attacks from the Gaza will never end. Were the Arab Palistinians ever to live co habitually with the Jews, they would be classified as traitors to the rest of the Islamic world. The Palestinians through Hamas must prove every day that they will never compromise with the Jews, or they will lose face in the Islamic world. 

The Jews have a major problem with trying to appease the gentile nations. The Jews can't push the Arabs out of the Gaza. The world politicians are already lined up to accuse the Jews of committing the greatest human rights travesty in all of history should they try. My thoughts are for the Jews to really occupy the Gaza as they are already accused of doing anyway. I think the Jews by taking complete control of daily life in the Gaza would force the Islamic Arabs to either submit to Jewish authority, or voluntarily leave. The Arabs would either face losing face in the Islamic world, or pull out of the Gaza forever. I already know this is not going to happen. What is going to happen is that Islam is going to invade Israel in an attempt to exterminate the Jews of the Holy Land.

It is the God of the Bible who establishes peace in the Holy Land the only way it can be done. It will be through judgment. God has clearly stated in the Bible that it is the Jews whom He loves, and the Arabs whom He hates. He will judge accordingly.

Romans 9:13

13 As it is written, Jacob have I loved, but Esau have I hated.

KJV

Malachi 1:2-3

2 I have loved you, saith the Lord . Yet ye say, Wherein hast thou loved us? Was not Esau Jacob's brother? saith the Lord : yet I loved Jacob,

3 And I hated Esau, and laid his mountains and his heritage waste for the dragons of the wilderness.

KJV

God knew from the very beginning that Hamas was eventually coming to His Holy Land. God knew how great their hate for the Jews would be, and how it would never be satisfied. Yes, God hates the Islamic Arab seed of Esau, and is going to judge them into submission or death. God is sending His only begotten Son to rule over the Holy Land as the King of the Jews. Islam must submit, or perish. Peace is coming, but it is coming through judgment!

 

Ezekiel 39

The End of Islam


39:1 Therefore, thou son of man, prophesy against Gog, and say, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I am against thee, O Gog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal:
2 And I will turn thee back, and leave but the sixth part of thee, and will cause thee to come up from the north parts, and will bring thee upon the mountains of Israel:
3 And I will smite thy bow out of thy left hand, and will cause thine arrows to fall out of thy right hand.

4 Thou shalt fall upon the mountains of Israel, thou, and all thy bands, and the people that is with thee: I will give thee unto the ravenous birds of every sort, and to the beasts of the field to be devoured.

5 Thou shalt fall upon the open field: for I have spoken it, saith the Lord GOD.
6 And I will send a fire on Magog, and among them that dwell carelessly in the isles: and they shall know that I am the LORD.


7 So will I make my holy name known in the midst of my people Israel; and I will not let them pollute my holy name any more: and the heathen shall know that I am the LORD, the Holy One in Israel.
8 Behold, it is come, and it is done, saith the Lord GOD; this is the day whereof I have spoken.


9 And they that dwell in the cities of Israel shall go forth, and shall set on fire and burn the weapons, both the shields and the bucklers, the bows and the arrows, and the handstaves, and the spears, and they shall burn them with fire seven years:
10 So that they shall take no wood out of the field, neither cut down any out of the forests; for they shall burn the weapons with fire: and they shall spoil those that spoiled them, and rob those that robbed them, saith the Lord GOD.

 

11 And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will give unto Gog a place there of graves in Israel, the valley of the passengers on the east of the sea: and it shall stop the noses of the passengers: and there shall they bury Gog and all his multitude: and they shall call it The valley of Hamon-gog.


12 And seven months shall the house of Israel be burying of them, that they may cleanse the land.


13 Yea, all the people of the land shall bury them; and it shall be to them a renown the day that I shall be glorified, saith the Lord GOD.

14 And they shall sever out men of continual employment, passing through the land to bury with the passengers those that remain upon the face of the earth, to cleanse it: after the end of seven months shall they search.


15 And the passengers that pass through the land, when any seeth a man's bone, then shall he set up a sign by it, till the buriers have buried it in the valley of Hamon-gog.
16 And also the name of the city shall be Hamonah. Thus shall they cleanse the land.


17 And, thou son of man, thus saith the Lord GOD; Speak unto every feathered fowl, and to every beast of the field, Assemble yourselves, and come; gather yourselves on every side to my sacrifice that I do sacrifice for you, even a great sacrifice upon the mountains of Israel, that ye may eat flesh, and drink blood.

18 Ye shall eat the flesh of the mighty, and drink the blood of the princes of the earth, of rams, of lambs, and of goats, of bullocks, all of them fatlings of Bashan.
19 And ye shall eat fat till ye be full, and drink blood till ye be drunken, of my sacrifice which I have sacrificed for you.

20 Thus ye shall be filled at my table with horses and chariots, with mighty men, and with all men of war, saith the Lord GOD.


21 And I will set my glory among the heathen, and all the heathen shall see my judgment that I have executed, and my hand that I have laid upon them.

22 So the house of Israel shall know that I am the LORD their God from that day and forward.

23 And the heathen shall know that the house of Israel went into captivity for their iniquity: because they trespassed against me, therefore hid I my face from them, and gave them into the hand of their enemies: so fell they all by the sword.
24 According to their uncleanness and according to their transgressions have I done unto them, and hid my face from them.

25 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Now will I bring again the captivity of Jacob, and have mercy upon the whole house of Israel, and will be jealous for my holy name;

26 After that they have borne their shame, and all their trespasses whereby they have trespassed against me, when they dwelt safely in their land, and none made them afraid.

27 When I have brought them again from the people, and gathered them out of their enemies' lands, and am sanctified in them in the sight of many nations;
28 Then shall they know that I am the LORD their God, which cause them to be led into captivity among the heathen: but I have gathered them unto their own land, and have left none of them any more there.
29 Neither will I hide my face any more from them: for I have poured out my spirit upon the house of Israel, saith the Lord GOD.
KJV

UN Human Rights Council condemns Israel over Gaza op
 

The United Nations Human Rights Council, dominated by Muslim states and their allies, condemned Israel on Monday for "grave violations" of human rights of the people of Gaza.

A resolution drafted by Arab, Asian and African countries also called for the urgent dispatch of an international mission to Gaza and called on Israel to cooperate with it. But the non-binding resolution, passed by 33 votes with 13 abstentions and one against, was dismissed by Israel as one-sided and reflecting the "fairytale world" of the 47-member Council, for which the Jewish state is a prime target.

The text of the document said the Council "strongly condemns the ongoing Israeli military operations...which have resulted in massive violations of human rights of the Palestinian people and systematic destruction of the Palestinian infrastructure."
 

 

 

 

There is a separation between the God of the Bible, and the United Nations representing this present gentile ruled planet as great as the gulf that separates Lazarus from the rich man.

Luke 16:22-23

22 And it came to pass, that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels into Abraham's bosom: the rich man also died, and was buried;

23 And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments, and seeth Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom.

KJV

Luke 16:26

26 And beside all this, between us and you there is a great gulf fixed: so that they which would pass from hence to you cannot; neither can they pass to us, that would come from thence.

KJV

This is the generation that will stand defiantly against God when He brings back His only begotten Son. The LORD Jesus Christ is Jewish. He is Jewish by choice! God chose the linage of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob through which the Savior would come, and that choice was not based on their righteousness. It was based on His love for the Jewish people as stiff-necked as they have always been.

Deuteronomy 9:4-6

4 Speak not thou in thine heart, after that the Lord thy God hath cast them out from before thee, saying, For my righteousness the Lord hath brought me in to possess this land: but for the wickedness of these nations the Lord doth drive them out from before thee.

5 Not for thy righteousness, or for the uprightness of thine heart, dost thou go to possess their land: but for the wickedness of these nations the Lord thy God doth drive them out from before thee, and that he may perform the word which the Lord sware unto thy fathers, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.

6 Understand therefore, that the Lord thy God giveth thee not this good land to possess it for thy righteousness; for thou art a stiffnecked people.

KJV

Understand, dear friend, that what is happening today in the Holy Land has nothing to do with the righteousness of man. It has everything to do with the promise of God, and His personal honor and integrity. God made a promise to Abraham, again to Isaac, and again to Jacob that He would lift up the Jewish nation to head the world. A Jewish Kingdom under one supreme perfect Jewish King/Messiah would rule the planet for 1000 years.  It is the fulfilling of that promise which is taking place today. The overthrow of gentile rule is what is happening in the Holy Land. It is because of the wickedness of the gentile nations that they are being disposed. It is because this is the generation God has chosen to experience the second coming of Christ. He is coming to judge the wickedness of the nations.

Friend, God has made a promise to you that He also desires to keep. A promise of salvation if you will just come to His only begotten Son for the forgiveness of your sin. This salvation will not be forced. You must come on your own free will to accept it. Once given it can never be revoked. It is a promise based on God's own holy word that will live forever.

 

Daniel 12:2

2 And many of them that sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt.

KJV

Matthew 19:28-30

28 And Jesus said unto them, Verily I say unto you, That ye which have followed me, in the regeneration when the Son of man shall sit in the throne of his glory, ye also shall sit upon twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel.

29 And every one that hath forsaken houses, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for my name's sake, shall receive an hundredfold, and shall inherit everlasting life.

30 But many that are first shall be last; and the last shall be first.

KJV

John 3:16

16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

KJV

John 3:36

36 He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.

KJV

Hamas leader defiant in face of new Israeli assault
 

In a recorded televised address, Hamas leader, Ishmael Haniyeh, has said the militant Islamist movement will still be able to drive Israel from the Gaza Strip.

haniyeh said the city would never be allowed to fall to the Israelis.

The defiant Hamas leader said his fighters were closer than ever to victory after 17 days of conflict.

Israeli infantry units, which have been augmented with thousands of newly-deployed reservists, have swept across Gaza in the operation which has been named Cast Lead.

Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert has promised there will be severe consequences for Hamas if it continues to send rockets into Israel.

In a speech in the southern Israeli town of Ashkelon, Mr Olmert said: "We want to end the operation when Hamas ends the rocket fire and stops rearming. If these two conditions are met, we will end our operation in Gaza. The Israeli people are no longer ready to tolerate the Qassam rockets."

An army spokesman said that close to 30 missiles had been launched from Gaza during the course of Monday, but there were no reports of casualties.

 

 

 

Hamas say they will never quit, and the Israelis say the same. Understand this is all political talk. The truth is that nothing is going to change. The hate the Islamic Arabs have for the Jews will never change, and the necessity of the Jews to defend their civilian population will never change. The conflict is endless until one, or the other wins a total victory much as happened in World War II. The Bible tells us that God is going to intercede. The plan of God is to bring back the LORD Jesus Christ to this generation. God has already brought the Jews back to their Promised Land. The next thing will be the building of the last Holy Jewish Temple on the Temple Mount where Ezekiel tells us Christ will have His Throne.

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.

KJV

It is the God of the Bible who is driving the events taking place in the Holy Land this very day. The next Holy Jewish Temple must be built before the coming Jewish King can take His rightful place as KING of Kings, and LORD of Lords. Islam will never tolerate a Jewish King sitting on a Jewish throne atop the Temple Mount. It is the plan of God to offer Islam an opportunity to submit to the Christ of the Bible, but it will be judgment if they reject Him. Islam must willingly step aside for the LORD Jesus Christ, or perish! The time is getting short. Islam must soon decide. The terrorists are mounting the opposition to Christ, and sadly the Islamic people are following them to their doom. 

Friend, are you also following those who are opposing the return of Christ to this generation? Your fate is as doomed unless you come to Him for the forgiveness of your sin. Friend, you must repent, and come to Christ. Your eternal future rests totally in Christ. He is the only Savior. There is no other.

John 14:6

6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

Ezekiel 39

The End of Islam


39:1 Therefore, thou son of man, prophesy against Gog, and say, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I am against thee, O Gog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal:
2 And I will turn thee back, and leave but the sixth part of thee, and will cause thee to come up from the north parts, and will bring thee upon the mountains of Israel:
3 And I will smite thy bow out of thy left hand, and will cause thine arrows to fall out of thy right hand.

4 Thou shalt fall upon the mountains of Israel, thou, and all thy bands, and the people that is with thee: I will give thee unto the ravenous birds of every sort, and to the beasts of the field to be devoured.

5 Thou shalt fall upon the open field: for I have spoken it, saith the Lord GOD.
6 And I will send a fire on Magog, and among them that dwell carelessly in the isles: and they shall know that I am the LORD.


7 So will I make my holy name known in the midst of my people Israel; and I will not let them pollute my holy name any more: and the heathen shall know that I am the LORD, the Holy One in Israel.
8 Behold, it is come, and it is done, saith the Lord GOD; this is the day whereof I have spoken.


9 And they that dwell in the cities of Israel shall go forth, and shall set on fire and burn the weapons, both the shields and the bucklers, the bows and the arrows, and the handstaves, and the spears, and they shall burn them with fire seven years:
10 So that they shall take no wood out of the field, neither cut down any out of the forests; for they shall burn the weapons with fire: and they shall spoil those that spoiled them, and rob those that robbed them, saith the Lord GOD.

 

11 And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will give unto Gog a place there of graves in Israel, the valley of the passengers on the east of the sea: and it shall stop the noses of the passengers: and there shall they bury Gog and all his multitude: and they shall call it The valley of Hamon-gog.


12 And seven months shall the house of Israel be burying of them, that they may cleanse the land.


13 Yea, all the people of the land shall bury them; and it shall be to them a renown the day that I shall be glorified, saith the Lord GOD.

14 And they shall sever out men of continual employment, passing through the land to bury with the passengers those that remain upon the face of the earth, to cleanse it: after the end of seven months shall they search.


15 And the passengers that pass through the land, when any seeth a man's bone, then shall he set up a sign by it, till the buriers have buried it in the valley of Hamon-gog.
16 And also the name of the city shall be Hamonah. Thus shall they cleanse the land.


17 And, thou son of man, thus saith the Lord GOD; Speak unto every feathered fowl, and to every beast of the field, Assemble yourselves, and come; gather yourselves on every side to my sacrifice that I do sacrifice for you, even a great sacrifice upon the mountains of Israel, that ye may eat flesh, and drink blood.

18 Ye shall eat the flesh of the mighty, and drink the blood of the princes of the earth, of rams, of lambs, and of goats, of bullocks, all of them fatlings of Bashan.
19 And ye shall eat fat till ye be full, and drink blood till ye be drunken, of my sacrifice which I have sacrificed for you.

20 Thus ye shall be filled at my table with horses and chariots, with mighty men, and with all men of war, saith the Lord GOD.


21 And I will set my glory among the heathen, and all the heathen shall see my judgment that I have executed, and my hand that I have laid upon them.

22 So the house of Israel shall know that I am the LORD their God from that day and forward.

23 And the heathen shall know that the house of Israel went into captivity for their iniquity: because they trespassed against me, therefore hid I my face from them, and gave them into the hand of their enemies: so fell they all by the sword.
24 According to their uncleanness and according to their transgressions have I done unto them, and hid my face from them.

25 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Now will I bring again the captivity of Jacob, and have mercy upon the whole house of Israel, and will be jealous for my holy name;

26 After that they have borne their shame, and all their trespasses whereby they have trespassed against me, when they dwelt safely in their land, and none made them afraid.

27 When I have brought them again from the people, and gathered them out of their enemies' lands, and am sanctified in them in the sight of many nations;
28 Then shall they know that I am the LORD their God, which cause them to be led into captivity among the heathen: but I have gathered them unto their own land, and have left none of them any more there.
29 Neither will I hide my face any more from them: for I have poured out my spirit upon the house of Israel, saith the Lord GOD.

Obama May End Military's Ban on Gays

January 07, 2009

Agence France-Presse

Sixteen years after Bill Clinton tried to end restrictions on gays in the military, the U.S. armed forces under Barack Obama may be forced to give homosexuals the same welcome as non-gays.

Under president Clinton, the policy that once saw homosexuals discharged from US military service evolved to "Don't Ask, Don't Tell," allowing gays to remain in the military so long as they did not reveal their sexual orientation.

Obama has pledged to overhaul current law.

"The key test for military service should be patriotism, a sense of duty, and a willingness to serve. Discrimination should be prohibited," reads an entry on the president-elect's transition website.

Poll: Should Obama Overturn "Don't Ask Don't Tell?"

Shortly after taking the oath of office in 1993, Clinton originally moved for an outright ban on discrimination based on sexual orientation in the military.

That step, for better or worse, prompted an outcry among top military brass, along with many Republicans and a significant segment of the public.

Clinton quickly came up with his "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" compromise, allowing gays and lesbians to serve in the military as long as they did not speak about their sexual orientation.

The law however still has seen a large number of dismissals of gay service members. Since its enactment, some 12,500 soldiers have been sent packing for acknowledging their homosexuality or after being outed as gay.

Those booted included some 800 key jobs such as Arabic translators, medical staff, pilots and intelligence personnel, according to the Servicemembers Legal Defense Network, a group which is fighting to end all restrictions on military service based on sexual orientation.

Backers of reform said the move toward loosening restriction reflects a change in societal attitudes.

"There has been a sea change in the way this issue is viewed, especially in light of our national security needs," said Democratic lawmaker Ellen Tauscher.

"We shouldn't be forcing good men and women out of military service," Tauscher told AFP.

The lawmaker is the lead sponsor in the House of Representatives of the Military Readiness Enhancement Act, which would replace "Don't Ask, Don't Tell."

"The momentum for repeal has already begun. This summer we held first hearing on this issue in 15 years and recent public surveys show 75 percent of Americans believe (homosexual) men and women should be able to serve openly," the California lawmaker continued.

"My bill to repeal the policy last year had 148 co-sponsors in the House. I will reintroduce this legislation in the coming Congress," Tauscher added.

Even a group of some 100 retired generals and admirals recently appealed for "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" to be scrapped.

"As is the case with Great Britain, Israel, and other nations that allow gays and lesbians to serve openly, our service members are professionals who are able to work together effectively despite differences in race, gender, religion, and sexuality," the former military brass wrote in their November 2008 letter.

Many in the traditionally conservative military community continue to have misgivings, but that lack of support should not impede getting rid of the law, opponents said.

"There will always be some people who will prefer the status quo, but people who preferred segregated units (banned in the U.S. military in 1948) didn't leave the military by and large," notes Aubrey Sarvis, director of the SDLN.

Obama will have to be firm in his commitment to ending discrimination against gays in the military, he warned, despite a full agenda of burgeoning crises.

"Of course, the economy has to be the first priority, but it's a matter of developing a plan on how to move forward successfully," said Sarvis, who predicted a new law within the year.

"I take the president-elect on his word," he said. "I think he'll do it."

This is what I have feared more then any other move made by the liberal Obama. The politicizing of the military! Olmert, the Prime Minister of Israel, lost the Second Lebanon War because he politicized the IDF forcing out his conservative detractors who would have balked at forcibly removing over 250,000 conservative Independent fundamental Jewish Settlers. For the first time since the modern State of Israel was formed God turned His back on the Jews, and they lost a major confrontation with the Arabs. I can only see God turning His back on America's military after such a move by Obama. The press will never report such happenings, but remember the press is not on the side of God when it comes to reporting the truth. I am just so sorry for all the faithful military personal who have found God determines our victories are now going to be victimized by politics.

I was assigned to the CID when in the Army, and know how prevalent the homosexual threat is to our young men and women. I know how aggressive the homosexuals are. They look at the military like a gluttonous child looks at a candy store. Folks, this is the truth. Homosexuality has nothing to do with genes. It has everything to do with lust. Unbridled, out of control sexual lust! Lust surrendered to by those of little character who only seek their own gratification. All the worst qualities of human behavior pointed out in the Bible are manifested in homosexuality. Just watch one gay pride parade, and you will know the truth. The military has always in the past represented the highest ideals to seek after, but Obama is about to change all that so his personal politics can be forced on America. Now we are about to experience the "change" he so vocally expressed when running for office. This is what America wanted, and this is what America is going to get. This is truly an evil generation.

Judgment is coming to this evil generation with the return of the LORD Jesus Christ. His Kingdom will be built upon Biblical righteousness. The perverted lusts of the homosexuals will be judged on the spot. It will be they who are forced to repent and submit to Biblical righteousness on that day, and not our young men and woman serving in the military today. This evil generation must be brought to task. Acceptance of homosexuality seems to be the last step before judgment in the Bible. Dear reader, on which side do you stand? Will you passively watch our military be politicized by the liberal Democrats who have now taken control of America?  Will you plead with God on behalf of an evil generation? Folks, it may be time to cry out for Biblical justice on a generation willingly out of control.

Hamas Offers Ceasefire, Threatens Revenge

by Maayana Miskin

(IsraelNN.com) Hamas has offered to stop attacking Israel for one year if Israel will open its western Negev crossings to Gaza, Egyptian officials announced Thursday night. The group demands that Israel withdraw its troops from Gaza within one week and refrain from any and all operations in the area while the ceasefire lasts.

Also on Thursday night, Hamas's Az a-Din el-Kuds Brigades, a branch of the Hamas armed forces, said they would take revenge for the death of Hamas minister Said Siyam. Siyam was killed in an Israeli airstrike on Thursday evening along with his brother, another senior Hamas leader.

His blood was not shed in vain. The response will be expressed in deeds, not words,” Hamas terrorists threatened.

Egyptian media sources reported earlier in the evening that Israel had in principle accepted an Egyptian ceasefire proposal. Israeli officials demanded certain changes to the plan, Egyptian diplomats said. Those demands will be presented to Hamas leaders in upcoming meetings.

Senior Defense Ministry official Major-General Amos Gilad returned from Cairo on Thursday after meeting with Egyptian diplomats to discuss progress in ceasefire talks with Hamas. Gilad met with Acting Prime Minister Ehud Olmert, Defense Minister Ehud Barak, and Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni to discuss the issue. The ministers are reportedly split on whether to seek a ceasefire at the current time.

Crossings Opened in exchange for Shalit?
According to Channel 10 news, Israel is willing to open Gaza crossings as part of the ceasefire deal. In exchange, Hamas would be required to reduce its demands regarding the release of kidnapped IDF soldier Gilad Shalit. The group is currently demanding the release of over 1,000 terrorists, including senior terrorists who bear direct responsibility for multiple murders.

If Hamas scales back its demands, a deal could be reached that would lead to Shalit's release, political analysts say. Barak met with Noam Shalit, Gilad's father, on Thursday, apparently to discuss developments in Gaza and the negotiations with Hamas.

 

 

 

Hamas has never ever kept their word. They are liars! They believe Allah just rewrites history so that anything done in his name will always be remembered as right. The ends always justify the means in Islamic theology. Lying to the Jews in order to gain an upper hand is Islamic righteousness. Should victory come because of a lie, then Islamic history will record that the lie was really truth because Allah got the glory. The bottom line of all this is that a ceasefire with Hamas is meaningless.

John 8:44

44 Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.

KJV

 

The conflict will only continue. Hamas will regroup, rearm, and require the Jews to pay the price of never-ending torture. Nothing is too dirty for Hamas to perpetrate against the hated Jews. The depths of human depravity is where Allah is leading every Moslem willing to follow. The most foolish part of all this is that the politicians keep telling all who will listen that they can make peace when there is no peace. Many of the religious leaders follow the politicians saying the god of Islam, and the God of the Bible are one in the same.

Jeremiah 6:13-15

13 For from the least of them even unto the greatest of them every one is given to covetousness; and from the prophet even unto the priest every one dealeth falsely.

14 They have healed also the hurt of the daughter of my people slightly, saying, Peace, peace; when there is no peace.

15 Were they ashamed when they had committed abomination? nay, they were not at all ashamed, neither could they blush: therefore they shall fall among them that fall: at the time that I visit them they shall be cast down, saith the Lord .

KJV

This evil generation is being prepared to be cast down. Peace is going to come to the Holy Land first then on to the rest of the world, but it will be peace brought through judgment.  It will not be another peace based on broken promises that accomplish nothing. The peace the LORD Jesus Christ is bringing will be permanent. It will be everlasting. It will not fail! Dear friend, The Savior, the redeemer, the mighty One of Israel wants to save you if you will only come. He offers eternal life to all who repent of their sin, and come to Him for forgiveness. He has opened His everlasting arms for you dear friend. It is the eternally perfect Christ who sacrificed Himself as the perfect sacrifice for sin at Calvary. However, He forces His salvation on none. It is you, dear friend, who must come of your own will. He promises He will not reject you if you will only come. Dear friend, won't you come to this Christ of the Bible, and live.

 

 

Deuteronomy 33:27-29

27 The eternal God is thy refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms: and he shall thrust out the enemy from before thee; and shall say, Destroy them.

28 Israel then shall dwell in safety alone: the fountain of Jacob shall be upon a land of corn and wine; also his heavens shall drop down dew.

29 Happy art thou, O Israel: who is like unto thee, O people saved by the Lord , the shield of thy help, and who is the sword of thy excellency! and thine enemies shall be found liars unto thee; and thou shalt tread upon their high places.

KJV

Isaiah 60:14-16

14 The sons also of them that afflicted thee shall come bending unto thee; and all they that despised thee shall bow themselves down at the soles of thy feet; and they shall call thee, The city of the Lord , The Zion of the Holy One of Israel.

15 Whereas thou hast been forsaken and hated, so that no man went through thee, I will make thee an eternal excellency, a joy of many generations.

16 Thou shalt also suck the milk of the Gentiles, and shalt suck the breast of kings: and thou shalt know that I the Lord am thy Saviour and thy Redeemer, the mighty One of Jacob.

Turkey's Erdogan: Bar Israel from UN

Erdogan he spoke before a visit by UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon in Ankara to discuss the Gaza conflict.

(IsraelNN.com) Turkey's prime minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan said Friday that Israel should be barred from the United Nations as long as it ignores the UN's calls to stop fighting in Gaza.

"How is such a country, which does not implement resolutions of the UN Security Council, allowed to enter through the gates of the UN (headquarters)?" Erdogan said.

 

 

It is no surprise to see Turkey expressing their contempt for Israel. The prophet Ezekiel wrote some 2600 years ago about events that would take place during our evil generation. Ezekiel went back to the days of Noah to identify the people now living in modern Turkey as joining a massive invasion force headed for Israel that this generation is about to witness. Ezekiel identifies the Turkish group as Togarmah who was a great, great grandson of Noah.

Genesis 10:1-3

10 Now these are the generations of the sons of Noah, Shem, Ham, and Japheth: and unto them were sons born after the flood.

2 The sons of Japheth; Gomer, and Magog, and Madai, and Javan, and Tubal, and Meshech, and Tiras.

3 And the sons of Gomer; Ashkenaz, and Riphath, and Togarmah.

KJV

It is here in Genesis where Ezekiel goes recollecting names such as Gomer, Magog, Tubal, Meshech, and Togarmah as all being joined together in this future invasion of Israel.

Ezekiel 38:1-7

38 And the word of the Lord came unto me, saying,

2 Son of man, set thy face against Gog, the land of Magog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal, and prophesy against him,

3 And say, Thus saith the Lord God ; Behold I am against thee, O Gog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal:

4 And I will turn thee back, and put hooks into thy jaws, and I will bring thee forth, and all thine army, horses and horsemen, all of them clothed with all sorts of armour, even a great company with bucklers and shields, all of them handling swords:

5 Persia, Ethiopia, and Libya with them; all of them with shield and helmet:

6 Gomer, and all his bands; the house of Togarmah of the north quarters, and all his bands: and many people with thee.

7 Be thou prepared, and prepare for thyself, thou, and all thy company that are assembled unto thee, and be thou a guard unto them.

KJV

Folks, the entire Bible is coming together (Genesis - Revelations) in this generation, and the world is refusing to acknowledge that God is again actively at work in the Holy Land controlling all events. The LORD Jesus Christ chided us to examine the generation of Noah, and make a comparison. Turkey as Togarmah out of the Book of Genesis is fluffing its feathers in preparation for its part in the coming Islamic invasion of Israel.

Matthew 24:37

37 But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.

KJV

 

Friend, I can only pray you are ready. Noah's generation foolishly ignored the building storm clouds God was sending on the earth of their day. Don' t be as foolish. Come to Christ for your salvation before the days pass you by, and it becomes too late. God destroyed an entire generation with the only exception being Noah and his family. Friend, without Christ you are nothing. You will be flushed into hell with the billions of others of this generation who reject His salvation refusing to repent, and come to Him for forgiveness. Oh friend, won't you come to this Christ of the Bible, and live?

 

1 Timothy 6:14-16

14 That thou keep this commandment without spot, unrebukeable, until the appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ:

15 Which in his times he shall shew, who is the blessed and only Potentate, the King of kings, and Lord of lords;

16 Who only hath immortality, dwelling in the light which no man can approach unto; whom no man hath seen, nor can see: to whom be honour and power everlasting. Amen.

KJV

Revelation 17:14

14 These shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them: for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings: and they that are with him are called, and chosen, and faithful.

KJV

Revelation 19:11-16

11 And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war.

12 His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself.

13 And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God.

14 And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean.

15 And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God.

16 And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND Lord OF Lord S.

KJV

"Iranian Unit" Destroyed, Hamas was Suprised

by Ernie Singer

(IsraelNN.com) The so-called "Iranian Unit" of Hamas has been destroyed, according to Gaza sources cited Thursday by the Haaretz daily. The sources said most of the unit's 100 members were killed in fighting in the Zeytun neighborhood of Gaza City.

The terrorists had been trained in infantry tactics, the use of anti-tank missiles and the detonation of explosives, among other skills, by the Iranian Revolutionary Guard at Hizbullah camps in Lebanon's Beka'a Valley, as well as sites in Iran.

The IDF Southern Command has reportedly stepped up ground operations in Gaza, in anticipation of a ceasefire declaration in the near future. Senior officers said Thursday that there are probably no more than a few days until the end of the fighting.

According to the Arab sources, when that happens Iran will send money to assist Hamas in restoring its military capabilities, in addition to the more widely-publicized program of rebuilding destroyed homes.

Hamas: We Didn't Expect it
Two captured terrorists interviewed by Maariv/NRG say that Hamas was not expecting Israel's response to the escalation in missile attacks on Israeli targets that preceded Operation Cast Lead. One of them, a 52-year-old victim of a premature detonation who had already done time in an Israeli jail, said, "Hamas took a gamble. We thought, at worst Israel will come and do something from the air - something superficial. They'll come in and go out. We never thought that we would reach the point where fear will swallow the heart and the feet will want to flee. You [Israel] are fighting like you fought in '48. What got into you all of a sudden?"

The second terrorist, a 21-year-old, said Hamas brought order to Gaza, but also brought fear. He noted that it was dangerous in Gaza for non-Hamas members, citing an instance of his being beaten and another in which he saw a friend killed when he went to get gas. "Now they're all gone," he said. "There have been no Hamasniks in the streets since the start of the campaign."

 

 

 

Yes, Hamas was surprised! The Jews were supposed to have their hands tied through political correctness. The Road Map was not to be threatened by Jewish retaliation. The world politicians were sure they had the Jews under their control. What happened was the Jews realized the gentile nations are not their friends. A new America under Obama is about to emerge that may not be as friendly to the Jews as before. The Jews realized they are alone, and must stand alone if they are going to stand at all. The pressure from the world is intense to bring the Jews back under gentile domination. The world wants a ceasefire before Islam gets too angry. The worldly idea of peace in the Holy Land is that the Jews just accept perpetual terrorism coming from Islam, and just passively sit by in hopes the enemy will eventually tier of the carnage. I doubt the remnants of the liberal Olmert government in these waning days is going to stand up long against the pressure of the gentile world. I suspect a ceasefire will come far too early to have done much good in stopping Hamas. Even if the Jews were successful in destroying Hamas in the Gaza, all that would happen is something worse then Hamas would fill the void.

The only answer is the Biblical answer. God has said that Islam is soon to invade the Holy Land. The aim will be to exterminate the Jews, and bring Islamic peace to the Holy Land. The Biblical plan is to pull Islam onto the mountains and fields of Israel like a fish being pulled in for the catch. The forces set in motion will be too strong for Islam to resist invasion. It is then that the God of the Bible says He will judge Islam! A last ever Jihad is what is described in Ezekiel 38 & 39. Islam will be relegated to the dung hill of history where all the past enemies of the Jews reside. The most recent being the Nazis. They were more powerful then Islam is today, and yet God destroyed them quickly. It is going to happen again! This world refuses to see the truth. The LORD Jesus Christ is coming again to the Holy Land, Jerusalem, and the Temple Mount. He is coming as the KING of the Jews. He is coming in the charater of the LORD of hosts. Islam must step aside from the Temple Mount for His Holy Jewish Temple to be built, or they will perish like the Nazis.

Friend, you also will perish like the Nazis of the last generation if you refuse to come to Christ. The decision is yours! 

 

Ezekiel 38:1-6

38 And the word of the Lord came unto me, saying,

2 Son of man, set thy face against Gog, the land of Magog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal, and prophesy against him,

3 And say, Thus saith the Lord God ; Behold I am against thee, O Gog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal:

4 And I will turn thee back, and put hooks into thy jaws, and I will bring thee forth, and all thine army, horses and horsemen, all of them clothed with all sorts of armour, even a great company with bucklers and shields, all of them handling swords:

5 Persia, Ethiopia, and Libya with them; all of them with shield and helmet:

6 Gomer, and all his bands; the house of Togarmah of the north quarters, and all his bands: and many people with thee.

KJV

Ezekiel 39:1-5

39 Therefore, thou son of man, prophesy against Gog, and say, Thus saith the Lord God ; Behold, I am against thee, O Gog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal:

2 And I will turn thee back, and leave but the sixth part of thee, and will cause thee to come up from the north parts, and will bring thee upon the mountains of Israel:

3 And I will smite thy bow out of thy left hand, and will cause thine arrows to fall out of thy right hand.

4 Thou shalt fall upon the mountains of Israel, thou, and all thy bands, and the people that is with thee: I will give thee unto the ravenous birds of every sort, and to the beasts of the field to be devoured.

5 Thou shalt fall upon the open field: for I have spoken it, saith the Lord God .

IDF Begins Leaving Gaza; Europe Vows to Stop Smuggling

by Tzvi Ben Gedalyahu

(IsraelNN.com) The IDF began a partial withdrawal of troops from Gaza immediately after a government-ordered ceasefire even though southern Israel continued to suffer rocket attacks. The troop movement was ordered despite a Saturday night Cabinet decision that troops would remain in the area until Hamas stops firing rockets on Israel.

Seventeen rockets struck as far away as Kiryat Gat, causing light injuries and widespread damage. One rocket was fired from between two schools, and the IDF did not strike back at the cell, presumably in order to avoid hitting civilians.

After the one-sided ceasefire went into effect and following the rocket attacks, Hamas claimed victory in the midst of defeat by announcing its own ceasefire. It "gave" Israel seven days to withdraw its troops from the Gaza area.

Outgoing Prime Minister Ehud Olmert made it clear to European leaders in a summit at Sharm el-Sheikh and later at a dinner in Jerusalem Sunday night that he will order the IDF to remove all soldiers from the Gaza region as soon as conditions allow.

"We halted fire after reaching most of our aims," he told six visiting European leaders. "If the ceasefire will continue, we have no intention of remaining in Gaza. The IDF will pull out when we are sure there is not danger to the citizens of Israel. We do not want to remain in Gaza, and we intend to withdraw as soon as possible."

All six European countries - Britain, France, Germany, Italy, Spain and the Czech Republic promised to lend technical and physical support to stop arms smuggling.

French Foreign Minister Bernard Kouchner, answering a journalist's concerns that smuggling will continue, stopped short of promising that the international community will succeed where Egypt failed three years ago in a similar agreement following the IDF withdrawal from Gaza under the Disengagement program.

"Step by step," Kouchner said while expressing hope that the smuggling will stop.

"First, we must stop rocket attacks," he said. Step two is to stop smuggling, Kouchner added, followed by the opening of Gaza crossings. 

Maj. Gen. Amir Eshel, Head of IDF Strategic Planning, updated foreign press on the situation in Gaza after the cease fire was announced (see video above).

 

 

 

It is sad to see all this carnage, and loss of life for nothing. It was all political. It was all about the liberal Olmert government in it's last days trying to save face after their humiliating defeat in the Second Lebanon War. Hamas was not destroyed. The rockets never were stopped. The perpetual torture of the Jews by Hamas will continue. Only the spin will claim a great victory. The spin from the Jews will be it was their victory. The spin from Hamas will be it was their victory. The spin will be taking a lie, and trying to convince the gullible it is the truth. The turning of the truth into a lie is Satanic, and always leads to worse things down the road.

Isaiah 59:4

4 None calleth for justice, nor any pleadeth for truth: they trust in vanity, and speak lies; they conceive mischief, and bring forth iniquity.

KJV

What an indictment that applies to our evil generation. What an accurate assessment of our present politicians. History has taken a turn for the worst once again. Operation Cast Lead has become just another step that will lead to the fulfillment of Ezekiel 38 & 39 when God is forced to actively intercede in the affairs of Israel. God has brought about this miraculous Third Exodus of our generation because the time is right for the return of the LORD Jesus Christ. The Bible says a last Holy Jewish Temple must be built on the Temple Mount as part of this present Exodus. Islam has sworn unto death that they will never permit the Jews to cleanse the Mount of all those blasphemous Islamic shrines now polluting this Holy Site. Ezekiel 38 & 39 is how the Bible says this dilemma will be solved. God will destroy the Islamic invaders of the Holy Land, and end all opposition to the building of the last Holy Jewish Temple. God is preparing the Holy Land for the return of His only begotten Son.

Friend, the end of a dispensation is upon us. A great judgment is predicted in the Bible. All who have rejected Christ, and turned their backs on the grace He offers through His blood shed at Calvary will collectively be judged guilty! Friend, if you are judged guilty you are without excuse. What more could Christ have done for you other then force His salvation on you while kicking and screaming never to submit to His holiness. Dear friend, repent, and come to Christ so you can live in perfect righteousness with Him through all eternity. He has the power to change your heart, but you must ask Him first. It is your responsibility. Won't you come, and live?

 

 

John 5:25-30

25 Verily, verily, I say unto you, The hour is coming, and now is, when the dead shall hear the voice of the Son of God: and they that hear shall live.

26 For as the Father hath life in himself; so hath he given to the Son to have life in himself;

27 And hath given him authority to execute judgment also, because he is the Son of man.

28 Marvel not at this: for the hour is coming, in the which all that are in the graves shall hear his voice,

29 And shall come forth; they that have done good, unto the resurrection of life; and they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of damnation.

30 I can of mine own self do nothing: as I hear, I judge: and my judgment is just; because I seek not mine own will, but the will of the Father which hath sent me.

KJV

The Bible and the War in Gaza

by Tzvi Ben Gedalyahu
 

(IsraelNN.com) Tzfat Chief Rabbi Shmuel Eliyahu told Ashdod students last week that Hamas is like the ancient Amalek, which attacked the children of Israel right after the Exodus from Egypt, and then wrote in a weekly Torah leaflet that they are like the Philistines in the time of Samson (Shimshon). Whether one or the other, or both, the rabbi called on the government not to surrender to modern moral values "at the expense of Jewish lives."

Rabbi Eliyahu told the students at the Bnei Akiva high school that the war against Hamas is "a war of the people of Israel against Amalek, against those wishing to destroy Jews."

The People of Israel's first encounter with Amalek is recounted in the Book of Exodus. "Then Amalek came and fought with Israel at Rephidim," the Torah relates in Exodus 17:6," and then continues, "So Moses said to Joshua, 'Choose for us men, and go out and fight with Amalek." In the end, "Joshua overwhelmed Amalek and his people with the sword."

Amalek also appears in the Book of the prophet Samuel (Shmuel), where King Saul (Shaul) failed to obey the command to kill Agag, the king of Amalek, and paid the price of a kingdom ripped apart by disunity.

Jewish tradition states that the identity of the Amalek people today is not known, but Amalek's intention of exterminating the People of Israel is associated with several figures in Israel, from Agag descendant Haman in the Book of Esther to Hitler and Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad - and now, Hamas.

However, Rabbi Eliyahu also wrote in a weekly Torah bulletin this past Sabbath that the rulers of Gaza today are the same Philistines from the same Gaza area and with the same lack of morals as they displayed in the days of Samson.

"Learn from history," he wrote. Then, like today, they had no moral problem to burn the Philistine wife of Samson with her father's family.

"Then, like today, the Israeli 'elite' did not exactly tolerate Samson, who was not a member of the 'clique' and who burned Philistine fields.

"The story of his last days is similar to today's events," according to Rabbi Eliyahu. "He stands at the base of the columns in the presence of thousands of Philistines who laugh" at his being apparently powerless.

"What would you do?" the rabbi asked rhetorically. "Samson intended to bring down the building on the residents and asks for help from the Almighty. Will He answer him? Are his intentions positive to kill thousands of people, women and children, because they want to kill him?

"G-d helped him. The Philistines learned a lesson not to mess around with those Jews. Twenty years of quiet" followed.

He concluded, "We hope that that Israel today will succeed in its task against the same Philistines from the same place and not fold its hands in 'morality' and prefer that Philistines live instead of Jews."

 

 

 

Yes, the Rabbi has gleaned some real truth from the Bible. It is God who brought the Jews back to their Promised Land in this miraculous Third Exodus of our generation, and it is the same God who saw fit to write the Old Testament who is applying those Old Testament truths to modern Israel. The Old Testament lives in today's news! Amalek and the Nazis, or Hamas and the Philistines, the truths most certainly does apply. It took mighty King David to finally end the Philistine threat to the Jews, and it will take a son of David to end the present Islamic threat to the Jews of today.

Isaiah 11:10-12

10 And in that day there shall be a root of Jesse, which shall stand for an ensign of the people; to it shall the Gentiles seek: and his rest shall be glorious.

11 And it shall come to pass in that day, that the Lord shall set his hand again the second time to recover the remnant of his people, which shall be left, from Assyria, and from Egypt, and from Pathros, and from Cush, and from Elam, and from Shinar, and from Hamath, and from the islands of the sea.

12 And he shall set up an ensign for the nations, and shall assemble the outcasts of Israel, and gather together the dispersed of Judah from the four corners of the earth.

KJV

Folks, that day is our day. This is the second time the Jews have been brought back to the Holy Land. The Old Testament lives in today's news! The apathy of this generation is beyond belief. The LORD Jesus Christ is coming again, and this evil generation could care less. Here in America we are installing a President who advocates the murder of babies for convenience sake. A man who has boasted one of his first acts will be to open the military to the perverted homosexuals giving them free reign where the highest values were once treasured among our young soldiers. Obama is intent on changing the moral values of the country. He is intent on forcing his liberal unbiblical morals on everyone. What is clearly defined in the Bible as sin, Obama intends to change into righteousness. In Obama's America it will be right to murder little babies in the womb. It will be right for perverts to do their best to entice young men and women into their filthy world of sexual sodomy. What the Bible says is wrong, Obama will be saying is right. At a time when this generation should be seeking Christ they have turned once again to Barabbas.

 

Exodus 22:22-24

22 Ye shall not afflict any widow, or fatherless child.

23 If thou afflict them in any wise, and they cry at all unto me, I will surely hear their cry;

24 And my wrath shall wax hot, and I will kill you with the sword; and your wives shall be widows, and your children fatherless.

KJV

Deuteronomy 27:19

19 Cursed be he that perverteth the judgment of the stranger, fatherless, and widow. And all the people shall say, Amen.

Leviticus 18:22-25

22 Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination.

23 Neither shalt thou lie with any beast to defile thyself therewith: neither shall any woman stand before a beast to lie down thereto: it is confusion.

24 Defile not ye yourselves in any of these things: for in all these the nations are defiled which I cast out before you:

25 And the land is defiled: therefore I do visit the iniquity thereof upon it, and the land itself vomiteth out her inhabitants.

Saudis Pledge to Cover Over Half of PA War Costs

by Nissan Ratzlav-Katz
 

(IsraelNN.com) The economic cost of the three-week Gaza war to the Palestinian Authority totals more than 1.9 billion US dollars, according to PA estimates. Saudi Arabia has pledged to pick up more than half of the tab, with other states offering financial assistance to Hamas as well.

Dr. Loai Shabana, Director of the PA's Central Bureau of Statistics, claimed Monday that the massive economic damage included the destruction of 14 percent of Gaza's infrastructure, including residential buildings and public facilities. According to a 2007 PA census, there were 147,437 buildings in Gaza

Speaking in Jerusalem, Shabana said that more than 5,000 PA residents were injured during Israel's Operation Cast Lead and will require some form of rehabilitation or financial assistance. Thousands of other households lost their breadwinners or their homes. She estimated that 31.5 million dollars will be needed in direct aid to Gazan families and individuals.

Saudi Arabia to Pick Up the Tab
Saudi Arabia pledged to provide the PA in Gaza, under the jihadist Hamas regime, with one billion dollars. The funds, Saudi King Abdullah said, are to go towards the reconstruction and rehabilitation of Gaza.

According to the Saudi monarch, "One drop of Palestinian blood" is more valuable than all the money in the world. He announced his kingdom's intention to make the billion-dollar donation at an Arab League economic summit held in Kuwait City on Monday. The meeting was called in light of harsh economic indicators regarding the Arab world in light of the global economic downturn. Aside from the Gaza issue, delegates focused on development in the Middle East.

In other forums, Syria and Iran also offered significant financial aid to help the Hamas regime recuperate from the heavy blows struck by Israel in the Jewish State's recent counter-terrorist offensive.


Iran looks to quickly rearm Hamas


Iran has launched a probe to determine why the battle plan it designed for Hamas in Gaza failed during the IDF’s recent offensive, and is looking to rearm the terrorist militia quickly, according to Israeli intelligence assessments. Tehran has already launched an internal probe to determine why the military blueprint and training it provided for Hamas failed to cause more Israeli casualties. Iran's military doctrine for the terrorist militia was based on three pillars: The first being defensive measures including hundreds of tunnels, booby-trapped homes and thousands of roadside bombs. The second pillar consisted of increased rocket attacks on Israel. Rockets pelted Israeli towns in the south throughout the campaign but Hamas intended on launching more rockets deeper into the Israeli heartland. The Iranian designed third pillar focused on creating a "victory image" in the form of a kidnapped soldier, burned out tank or downed aircraft, all tactics that led to a declaration of victory by Hizbullah after battling the IDF in 2006. Jerusalem is concerned that Iran is now attempting to smuggle long-range Fajr ballistic missiles into Gaza. The Iranian designed Fajr has a range of 70 km or 44 miles, easily putting Tel Aviv in striking distance. On Monday, Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni addressed the issue by saying that renewed smuggling would be legitimate grounds for Israel to renew attacks against Hamas.
 

 

 

 

Well here it is. Hamas is going to come back even stronger then it was before Cast-Lead was enacted. Let me be clear in stating that all the politicians knew this from the beginning. This was not an operation aimed at changing things. It was 100% a face saving move by the liberal politicians of Israel as they contemplated the trouncing the polls are predicting they are about to experience in the February elections. Olmert is trying to recover from the first ever defeat of the Israeli Defense Forces by the Islamic terrorist organization Hizbullah now entrenched in Lebanon. Olmert must now convince the Jews that he single-handedly defeated Hamas in the Gaza thus redeeming himself, and his liberal policies for the foreseeable future. The liberals are now in full control of the United States. Olmert must convince the Jews it would be foolish for them to turn to the conservatives at this time in history when the popularity of Obama has put the world in his hands. Olmert must convince the Jews that now is the time for liberal "do nothing" endless compromise not conservative principled toughness sticking through the hard times.

The world is about to take another great turn with the liberal Obama Presidency. A liberal approach to solving the Middle East problems is in the wind. I would hope Obama will abandon the failed Road Map Two State solution, but I fear he will only give it even more emphasis then did the conservative Bush. Time will tell, but I do not believe Obama is going to be a friend to Israel. A weak Israel will encourage the Islamic invasion I refer to often in Ezekiel 38 & 39. I am reminded that Ezekiel refers to a phony peace being in place when the invasion takes place.

Ezekiel 38:11

11 And thou shalt say, I will go up to the land of unwalled villages; I will go to them that are at rest, that dwell safely, all of them dwelling without walls, and having neither bars nor gates,

KJV

It is most probable that Obama will be the one who takes Israel into this phony peace that leads to the Ezekiel invasion. Obama may well be the influencing power that will bring about this unwalled condition of which Ezekiel speaks. Israel is going to be lulled into a false sense of safety. I would expect some commitment by the United States will guarantee the Jews that they will be able to rest from the ever present Islamic threat. Some kind of agreement will cause the Jews to lower their guard. Only the United States is powerful enough to make such an agreement have meaning. The implied scenario of events indicate that whoever gave the Jews confidence to lay down their guard does nothing when the Islamic invasion takes place. Ezekiel is clear the invaders cross the boarders, and then it is God who intervenes not any of the gentile nations. Ezekiel is clear that God uses this Islamic invasion to reveal to both Israel, and the heathen that He is again standing up for the Jews as He did in Old Testament times.

Ezekiel 38:23

23 Thus will I magnify myself, and sanctify myself; and I will be known in the eyes of many nations, and they shall know that I am the Lord .

KJV

Ezekiel 39:7

7 So will I make my holy name known in the midst of my people Israel; and I will not let them pollute my holy name any more: and the heathen shall know that I am the Lord , the Holy One in Israel.

KJV

Ezekiel 39:22-23

22 So the house of Israel shall know that I am the Lord their God from that day and forward.

23 And the heathen shall know that the house of Israel went into captivity for their iniquity: because they trespassed against me, therefore hid I my face from them, and gave them into the hand of their enemies: so fell they all by the sword.

KJV

 Obama may well lead Israel into conditions that produce the coming invasion, but God will get the glory in the end. God will not abandon His chosen people as apparently do the gentile nations including the United States. The destruction of Islam opens the door for the Jews who come to know God at this time to build the Temple Ezekiel describes (Ezek 40 - 48) after Ezekiel 39 takes place.

Friend, one thing I know for certain is that if you repent, and come to Christ as a lost sinner that He will never abandon you. He is a faithful Savior who never breaks His word. His promises last for all eternity. Won't you come to this Christ of the Bible, and live.

John 10:27-28

27 My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me:

28 And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.

KJV

 

Ezekiel 39

The End of Islam


39:1 Therefore, thou son of man, prophesy against Gog, and say, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I am against thee, O Gog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal:
2 And I will turn thee back, and leave but the sixth part of thee, and will cause thee to come up from the north parts, and will bring thee upon the mountains of Israel:
3 And I will smite thy bow out of thy left hand, and will cause thine arrows to fall out of thy right hand.

4 Thou shalt fall upon the mountains of Israel, thou, and all thy bands, and the people that is with thee: I will give thee unto the ravenous birds of every sort, and to the beasts of the field to be devoured.

5 Thou shalt fall upon the open field: for I have spoken it, saith the Lord GOD.
6 And I will send a fire on Magog, and among them that dwell carelessly in the isles: and they shall know that I am the LORD.


7 So will I make my holy name known in the midst of my people Israel; and I will not let them pollute my holy name any more: and the heathen shall know that I am the LORD, the Holy One in Israel.
8 Behold, it is come, and it is done, saith the Lord GOD; this is the day whereof I have spoken.


9 And they that dwell in the cities of Israel shall go forth, and shall set on fire and burn the weapons, both the shields and the bucklers, the bows and the arrows, and the handstaves, and the spears, and they shall burn them with fire seven years:
10 So that they shall take no wood out of the field, neither cut down any out of the forests; for they shall burn the weapons with fire: and they shall spoil those that spoiled them, and rob those that robbed them, saith the Lord GOD.

 

11 And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will give unto Gog a place there of graves in Israel, the valley of the passengers on the east of the sea: and it shall stop the noses of the passengers: and there shall they bury Gog and all his multitude: and they shall call it The valley of Hamon-gog.


12 And seven months shall the house of Israel be burying of them, that they may cleanse the land.


13 Yea, all the people of the land shall bury them; and it shall be to them a renown the day that I shall be glorified, saith the Lord GOD.

14 And they shall sever out men of continual employment, passing through the land to bury with the passengers those that remain upon the face of the earth, to cleanse it: after the end of seven months shall they search.


15 And the passengers that pass through the land, when any seeth a man's bone, then shall he set up a sign by it, till the buriers have buried it in the valley of Hamon-gog.
16 And also the name of the city shall be Hamonah. Thus shall they cleanse the land.


17 And, thou son of man, thus saith the Lord GOD; Speak unto every feathered fowl, and to every beast of the field, Assemble yourselves, and come; gather yourselves on every side to my sacrifice that I do sacrifice for you, even a great sacrifice upon the mountains of Israel, that ye may eat flesh, and drink blood.

18 Ye shall eat the flesh of the mighty, and drink the blood of the princes of the earth, of rams, of lambs, and of goats, of bullocks, all of them fatlings of Bashan.
19 And ye shall eat fat till ye be full, and drink blood till ye be drunken, of my sacrifice which I have sacrificed for you.

20 Thus ye shall be filled at my table with horses and chariots, with mighty men, and with all men of war, saith the Lord GOD.


21 And I will set my glory among the heathen, and all the heathen shall see my judgment that I have executed, and my hand that I have laid upon them.

22 So the house of Israel shall know that I am the LORD their God from that day and forward.

23 And the heathen shall know that the house of Israel went into captivity for their iniquity: because they trespassed against me, therefore hid I my face from them, and gave them into the hand of their enemies: so fell they all by the sword.
24 According to their uncleanness and according to their transgressions have I done unto them, and hid my face from them.

25 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Now will I bring again the captivity of Jacob, and have mercy upon the whole house of Israel, and will be jealous for my holy name;

26 After that they have borne their shame, and all their trespasses whereby they have trespassed against me, when they dwelt safely in their land, and none made them afraid.

27 When I have brought them again from the people, and gathered them out of their enemies' lands, and am sanctified in them in the sight of many nations;
28 Then shall they know that I am the LORD their God, which cause them to be led into captivity among the heathen: but I have gathered them unto their own land, and have left none of them any more there.
29 Neither will I hide my face any more from them: for I have poured out my spirit upon the house of Israel, saith the Lord GOD.

Hamas rallies in Gaza celebrate ‘victory’ over IDF


Makes false claims of Israeli losses in fighting
 

Waving the familiar green flags of the movement, thousands of Hamas loyalists in Gaza staged a dozen street rallies on Tuesday to celebrate their “victory” over the IDF in the recent fighting, while the Islamist terror militia’s officials continued to make false claims of Israeli losses in Operation Cast Lead.

After Hamas leader in Gaza Ismail Haniyeh emerged from hiding this week and
announced the group’s “divine victory” in a televised address, the group has tried to present a celebratory mood even amid the destruction of Gaza. Thousands of Gazans marched yesterday in Gaza City and gathered on the ruined homes of targeted Hamas militia commanders to express their joy at the “victory of the resistance.”

Addressing a crowd near Gaza City's demolished parliament building, Ismail Radwan, a Hamas leader, declared:
"Gaza is not our goal. The liberation of all of Palestine, from the [Jordan] river to the [Mediterranean] sea, God willing, will be achieved."

But Gaza resident Jawdat Abu Nahel dismissed Hamas' victory claims, telling the AP, "We can't talk about real victory because there were
thousands of martyrs, and we didn't liberate anything.

Meanwhile, the Hamas military wing’s spokesmen kept trying to paint the false picture that Hamas “won” the war,
falsely claiming that 80 Israel soldiers had been killed (ten Israeli soldiers were killed, four by friendly fire).

In broadcasts on its Al-Aqsa TV channel, the group has also boasted of
fictitious military achievements, such as the downing of helicopters, the abduction of IDF soldiers and attacks within Israel.


Hamas reasserts control in Gaza, rounds up 'collaborators'

The Islamist Palestinian group Hamas said on Wednesday it had begun reasserting control in the Gaza Strip and rounding up suspected collaborators with Israel, drawing accusations from the rival Fatah group that its members were being targeted.

"The internal security service was instructed to track collaborators and hit them hard," said Ehab al-Ghsain, spokesman of the Hamas Interior Ministry, without singling out Fatah members by name.

"They arrested dozens of collaborators who attempted to strike the resistance by giving information to the occupation about the fighters," he said, using a Hamas term for Israel, whose 22-day offensive devastated the Gaza Strip.
Earlier this month, Haaretz correspondent Amira Hass first reported the secret executions of dozens of Gazans consider by Hamas to be "collaborators" with the enemy.

Hamas and Fatah supporters have traded accusations in Arab media that Fatah collaborated with Israel in the hope it could return to power in the Gaza Strip and that Hamas provoked the Israeli invasion by firing rockets into southern Israel.

Hamas, an Islamist group that won the 2006 Palestinian election, violently seized the coastal enclave from Fatah, led by Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, in 2007.

A statement issued by Fatah in Gaza said that since fighting between Israel and Gaza militants ended - Hamas and Israel put separate ceasefires into effect on Sunday - Hamas militias had carried out a number of attacks against Fatah members.

These attacks, according to the statement, included "shooting at the feet of Fatah members, brutal crimes of execution and throwing the bodies in the rubble of destruction." Fatah appealed to Abbas' Palestinian Authority to intervene.

Ghsain denied the allegations but said authorities had begun tracking down suspected "collaborators" with Israel.

"These are familiar lies and false allegations from Fatah and the forces of sedition," he said.

"It is also an attempt to steal the light of victory and cover up how they bet on the enemy and their disappointment that the enemy could do nothing to return them [to power]."

Residents said several suspected collaborators were killed by unknown assailants during the Gaza war. No Hamas-related groups have claimed responsibility and relatives of militants killed by Israel are thought to be behind some of the attacks.

Some prisoners escaped from the Israeli-bombed security complex housing Gaza's main prison early in the conflict. At least two were subsequently shot in a settling of scores with people suspected of collaboration with Israel.

The offensive Israel launched on Dec. 27 with the declared aim of ending rocket attacks from the Gaza Strip killed nearly 1,300 Palestinians and made thousands homeless. Gaza medical officials said the Palestinian dead included at least 700 civilians.

Israel, which put its own losses at 10 soldiers and three civilians, says hundreds of militants died. It completed a Gaza troop pullout on Wednesday.

The Hamas government said many employees were back at work on Wednesday in buildings such as the Ministry of Education that survived the Israeli attack intact. Employees of destroyed ministries would be relocated to other buildings.

Armed police in official uniforms were on the streets, organizing traffic and guarding government buildings. Hamas says 230 policemen were killed during the fighting. An Israeli attack also killed Hamas' security chief, Said Sayyam.
 


 

 

 

These are the people the world politicians want the Jews to share the Holy Land. A people who are dedicated to the destruction of the Jews. A culture dedicated to barbarianism. The world as well rounded up all the hardened Nazis after World War II, armed them to the teeth, and said live here in the Holy Land. Actually the hate of these Arabs surpasses the hate of the Nazis. Things always go from bad to worse when Satan gains control. Obama in his first day in office is telling America and the world he intends to become fully engaged in forcing peace in the Holy Land, and his commitment will surpass the Bush effort which he analyzes as a major failure of the Bush Administration. Obama is ready to jump into the Holy Land conflict with both feet. He knows nothing of what the Bible reveals as God's plan for the Holy Land today. Though he claims to be an Evangelical, he has no concept of the imminent return of Christ. His dealings with the Holy Land will be without any thought to what effect his manipulations will have on the return of the LORD Jesus Christ. He is only interested in forcing Moslem, Jew, and Christian to compromise for peace during his term in office. A forced peace during the wrong time in Biblical history. This is the time for the heathen to awake. It is not the time for a phony peace!

Joel 3:10-12

10 Beat your plowshares into swords, and your pruninghooks into spears: let the weak say, I am strong.

11 Assemble yourselves, and come, all ye heathen, and gather yourselves together round about: thither cause thy mighty ones to come down, O Lord .

12 Let the heathen be wakened, and come up to the valley of Jehoshaphat: for there will I sit to judge all the heathen round about.

KJV

There is nothing more foolish then for a commander to commit all his forces into one massive attack draining all his resources only to find he attacked the wrong mountain. Ignorance of the Bible is leading Obama into such action in the Holy Land. He is seeking peace from the very heathen whom God is in the process of waking up. The plan of God is to judge the heathen for their sin while Obama's plan is to offer the hand of friendship to this filthy vicious enemy dedicated to the destruction of God's chosen people. An enemy sworn to death never to allow a Jewish King to sit on His throne in Jerusalem. Obama just has the wrong plan at the wrong time.

Friend, there is only one plan when it comes to God. Men are lost in their sin, and need a Savior. God so loved lost mankind that He sent that Savior.

  

John 3:16

16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

KJV

How sad that instead of rejoicing this sin filled world despised Him when He came the first time. This evil generation continues to despise Him this very moment. Friend, this time when H3e comes He is coming in great power qand glory. This time He is coming in judgment. Once He finishes judging the rebellious sinners He will establish a perfect peace. Once the heathen are destroyed this world will have the peace promised in the Bible. Friend, you can have that peace this very day. All you need do is repent of your sin, and come to Christ as your Savior. Only Christ has the power to wash away all sin. His promise is that if you come, He will forgive. Won't you come to this Christ of the Bible?

 

Isaiah 2:4-5

And he shall judge among the nations, and shall rebuke many people: and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruninghooks: nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more.

5 O house of Jacob, come ye, and let us walk in the light of the Lord .

Hundreds of Gazans amasse on Egypt border to repair tunnels destroyed by IAF
 

Hundreds of Palestinians came to the Gaza Strip's border with Egypt on Thursday to try to repair smuggling tunnels bombed by Israel during a 22-day offensive and restore a commercial lifeline to the Hamas-ruled territory.

Residents along the border, where some Palestinians own tunnels and run them as businesses, said shipments of fuel and kerosene stoves had already been moving through the several dozen tunnels, out of hundreds, that were still functioning.

Tunnel-owner Mohammed said he and three partners had paid $40,000 to build their supply line.

Soon it will be operational, I will not bring drugs or weapons, I plan to use it to bring in what people need most - food and fuel, and that is very profitable," he said.

Hamas and other militant groups use their own tunnels to smuggle in weapons but journalists do not have access to them and it was impossible to see whether they had resumed operation.

Israel has threatened new military action to prevent Hamas from replenishing the rocket arsenal it used to strike southern Israeli towns. Israeli troops pulled out of the Gaza Strip on Wednesday, three days after separate ceasefires declared by Israel and Hamas went into effect.

"If we need to do additional military operations to stop smuggling, it will be done ... Israel reserves the right to act against smuggling, period," Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni told Israel Radio.

In the southern Gaza town of Rafah, hundreds of Palestinians who own a financial stake in tunnels checked on their status and began repair work under the cover of tents.

Israel's blockade of the Gaza Strip - it has been allowing in humanitarian aid - has turned tunnels into a big business.

"We have to make a living. We are still young and we have no other job except in the tunnels," said an 18-year-old tunnel owner, who gave his name only as Mohammed.

Using pulleys, workers pulled generators out of collapsed shafts covered by sand. Trucks carried away damaged caravans. Once fixed, they will be returned to digging sites and used by laborers taking a break.

The chief of staff of Israel's armed forces, Lieutenant-General Gabi Ashkenazi, said last week that Israeli aircraft had bombed "all of the known tunnels" during the Gaza assault.

In Brussels, Livni said after talks with European Union officials on Wednesday that she had won an "understanding" of the need to prevent the smuggling of arms into the Gaza Strip.

She said on Army Radio that Israel wanted the Europeans to assist in stopping ships carrying arms to the territory and in "tightening sanctions on Iran" as a weapons supplier to Hamas.

Earlier, EU ministers stressed that a reopening of border crossings was a key precondition to halting the flow of smuggled goods, including arms, into the Gaza Strip through the tunnels.

"Let them open the crossings and we will quit this work," said tunnel owner Abu Al-Bara


 

 

I would hope you understand that open boarder crossings is the fastest way for Hamas to rearm. The slower, and more difficult way to bring in arms, and rockets is through the tunnels. Hamas propaganda wants to turn the boarder crossing issue into a humanitarian issue rather then the true issue which is the Hamas desire to perpetually torture the Jews. The most profits made by the tunnel owners is that coming from Iran. Any tunnel owner who might refuse to allow arms shipments to pass through his personal tunnel would be quickly murdered by Hamas. Folks, realize these are barbarians we are dealing with not principled entrepreneurs. I'm sure there are profits to be made in the black market, but no one bucks Hamas in the Gaza. When the shiploads of arms find their way from Iran to the Egyptian boarder, you better believe every tunnel is being used to quickly move them into the interior of the Gaza. The black market goods lose their priority when Hamas is moving weapons.

Operation Cast-Lead accomplished nothing. What is needed in the Holy Land is to stop Iran, and all the other Islamic counties from causing all the trouble through Hizbullah and Hamas. War with Iran is the only solution if the Jews want to remain in the Holy Land dwelling in safety. The political will to end the Iranian nuclear threat, and support of Hizbullah and Hams is not there! Neither the American politicians, or the Israeli politicians want to take on Iran, and the other Islamic counties at this time. Endless negotiations, and compromises until it is too late is all I see either Obama; or Netanyahu (should he win in February) accomplishing. Iran has only one goal, and that is to wipe Israel off the map. Nothing is going to change that, and the Bible confirms this.  According to Ezekiel it will not be until Iran joined by many other Islamic countries invades Israel that this present situation will finally change.

 

 

Friend, the time is short. Islam is ready for the "Last Jihad." The politicians necessary to bring about the "Last Jihad" of Ezekiel are being positioned this very day. God has chosen this our generation to bring the Jews back to their Promised Land in this miraculous Third Exodus we are experiencing. The Biblical "Times of the gentiles" is coming to an end! Dispensational change is overtaking this evil generation. The stone cut without hands, the only virgin born Spirit filled being, is about to break into pieces gentile rule of planet earth. Never again will the gentile nations rule as the Jewish Kingdom Age is ushered in. Only the LORD Jesus Christ as KING of the Jews, as KING of Kings and LORD of Lords, will rule! The Bible says His reign will be glorious! The Bible says "Thy kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven!"

Daniel 2:32-35

32 This image's head was of fine gold, his breast and his arms of silver, his belly and his thighs of brass,

33 His legs of iron, his feet part of iron and part of clay.

34 Thou sawest till that a stone was cut out without hands, which smote the image upon his feet that were of iron and clay, and brake them to pieces.

35 Then was the iron, the clay, the brass, the silver, and the gold, broken to pieces together, and became like the chaff of the summer threshingfloors; and the wind carried them away, that no place was found for them: and the stone that smote the image became a great mountain, and filled the whole earth.

KJV

The LORD Jesus Christ is coming again just like the Bible says. He is coming to the Holy Land, Jerusalem, and the Temple Mount. The stone that is about to smite the mighty gentile nations is about to become a great mountain that will fill the whole earth. The LORD Jesus Christ is about to establish His Jewish Kingdom promised from before the foundations of the earth were laid. The time has come for Daniel's prophecy to come into fullness. These are the days of Ezekiel, and all the prophets who wrote about these last days. Are you saved? Have you been washed in the sin cleansing blood of the Lamb? Are you "born again" as Christ admonished Nicodemus in the Book of John? Friend, there is only one way to be saved, and that is to come to the Savior. Religion can't save. No religious leader no matter how high up in the hierarchy of worldly religions has the power to save. It is only Christ. It is to Him I invite you to come. Repent of your sin, and cast yourself upon His mercy. He loves you dear friend. He will save you if you humble yourself, and ask. Won't you come to this Christ of the Bible, and live?

 

Isaiah 2:4-5

And he shall judge among the nations, and shall rebuke many people: and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruninghooks: nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more.

Saudi prince says US ties at risk over Gaza


Condemns 'Israeli atrocities', Bush's 'sickening legacy'


A top Saudi prince warned on Friday that “unless the new [Obama] administration takes forceful steps to prevent any further suffering and slaughter of Palestinians, the peace process, the US-Saudi relationship and the stability of the region are at risk.

Israel had come close to "killing the prospect of peace" with its offensive in Gaza, Prince Turki al-Faisal wrote in an article published on the Financial Times website today.

"If the US wants to continue playing a leadership role in the Middle East and keep its strategic alliances intact -- especially its
'special relationship' with Saudi Arabia - it will have to drastically revise its policies vis-a-vis Israel and Palestine," Turki wrote.

He also
urged new US President Barack Obama to condemn what he called "Israel's atrocities" against the Palestinians, and insisted the outgoing administration of US President George W. Bush had left a "sickening legacy" in the Middle East, singling out the Iraq war.

He added that Iranian President Mahmoud
Ahmadinejad had written to Saudi King Abdullah last week urging Saudi Arabia to lead a "jihad", or holy war, against Israel. This call for jihad would, if pursued, create "unprecedented chaos and bloodshed" in the region, said Turki. "So far, the kingdom has resisted these calls, but every day this restraint becomes more difficult to maintain," he said.

Turki is a former Saudi intelligence chief and former ambassador to the United States and Britain, but currently holds no official government position in the Saudi regime.


 

 

I would hope Obama will use his popularity to break this special relationship we have with the Saudi's. What is the relationship? It is a strangle hold that we permit the Saudi's to have on us.  It is about time we get tough with these barbarians who just the other day promised Hamas they would provide the lion's share of whatever the cost to restore Hamas to even greater strength then where they were before the Jewish incursion. It is our money that we give to the Saudi's for oil that they are promising to Hamas. Obama could call their bluff, and force them to not give Hamas any more of our money. This would be a change that I would love to see. We should not be having any kind of special relationships with the Saudi's. We should hold them to the same standards we impose on any other nation giving aid and comfort to the enemy. Hamas is dedicated to the destruction of Israel. It is a terrorist organization now running the government in the Gaza. The Arab Palestinians voted them into office because they want to exterminate the Jews. We should put such pressure on the Arab Palestinians that they vote out Hamas. There can never be peace when one of the party's is sworn to exterminate the other. How sad that the Saudi's are using revenues collected from us to assure that Hamas survives operation Cast-Lead. And, not only survives, but thrives!

Friend, these changes are never going to happen. We do not have the power to force the politicians to do what they should, but there is a change that can happen in your life where you do have control. The work has already been done. All you need do is open the door. The LORD Jesus Christ paid the penalty for sin at Calvary. He offers forgiveness of sin, and eternal life to any who will come. It is a gift the Bible calls grace. Everything has been done. You only need recognize that you are lost in sin, and do not have the power to change your condition. The LORD Jesus Christ says He will do the changing. All you need do is come, and freely partake of His grace. Friend, won't you come to Christ this day, and live.

 

Ezekiel 11:19-21

19 And I will give them one heart, and I will put a new spirit within you; and I will take the stony heart out of their flesh, and will give them an heart of flesh:

20 That they may walk in my statutes, and keep mine ordinances, and do them: and they shall be my people, and I will be their God.

21 But as for them whose heart walketh after the heart of their detestable things and their abominations, I will recompense their way upon their own heads, saith the Lord God .

KJV

2 Corinthians 5:17

17 Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.

US Navy Interception of Iranian Ship Probably Covert Operation


by Avraham Zuroff


 

(IsraelNN.com) A U.S. Naval vessel in the Gulf of Aden has been ordered to search for suspicious Iranian ships containing weaponry heading for Gaza. Combined Task Force 151, which is keeping pirates at bay in the Gulf of Aden, has been ordered to track Iranian arms shipments, the Sunday Times reports.

Naval officers from the USS San Antonio, an amphibious transport dockship that serves as the headquarters for the taskforce, last week boarded a cargo vessel registered in Limassol and flying a Cypriot flag.

Upon boarding the ship in the Red Sea, the naval officers discovered numerous crates with the inscription “hazardous materials.” The naval officers asked Egyptian authorities to order the Iranian ship to proceed to an Egyptian port for a detailed search before allowing it to travel through the Suez Canal. According to unconfirmed reports, the navy found armaments. However, the U.S. has not confirmed the media reports.

Probably 'Covert Operation'

Prof. Raymond Tanter, president of the Washington-based Iran Policy Committee, told The Jerusalem Post, “It is not surprising that the U.S. Navy is reluctant to acknowledge the operation, which may have been covert,” adding that legal challenges are present when intercepting ships flying flags of a sovereign country. In last week’s seizure, the Iranian-owned ship was flying a Cypriot flag, “and the maritime law is less able to justify stop and search operations against such ships,” Tanter clarified.

Tanter said he feels that intelligence provided by friendly nations, such as Egypt, helped the U.S. intercept the Iranian boat. Due to concern in intelligence circles that Iran is attempting to ship a ‘dirty bomb’ to Gaza, the U.S. has taken strong measures to prevent the arms from reaching Hamas. Nonetheless, due to legal wranglings, the U.S. has covertly performed the operation, Tanter implied.

In recent weeks, at least two Iranian warships have entered the Gulf of Aden, officially as a means of fighting Somali piracy. Israel nevertheless claims that Iran is attempting to rearm the Hamas-run Palestinian Authority in Gaza.

Israel and the U.S. signed a political-military memorandum of understanding on January 16 regarding the joint tracking of arms smuggling from Iran into Gaza. The agreement includes the American obligation to act together with NATO and other agents in order to prevent arms smuggling into Gaza via the Mediterranean Sea, the Gulf of Aden, the Red Sea, and eastern Africa.

Although one of the IDF’s objectives in the Operation “Cast Lead” was to eliminate smuggling tunnels from Egypt to Gaza, Arab sources estimate that 20 percent of the pre-war total, or 100 tunnels remain open as a possible means to rearm the Hamas terrorist entity.


 

 

Iran is trying to rearm Hamas the fastest, and easiest way possible by sending shiploads of weapons into Egypt. The Navy seems to be on top of the effort shutting them down fairly effectively. The slower, and more difficult overland route seems the only alternative. Iran will be persistent. Hamas will be rearmed, and daily rocket attacks will again be the status quo. I suspect only a temporary lull in the attacks on the Jewish civilian population. The hate of Islam against the Jews will never rest. Islam will never give up on the Holy Land which they believe the Koran gives them the right to claim as their own, and that puts them into direct conflict with the God of the Bible who has given the Holy Land to the Jews as their Promised Land. The God of the Bible by choosing this generation to experience the return of Christ has seen fit to bring about this miraculous Third Exodus which has given the Jews sovereignty over the Holy Land. The God of the Bible has openly challenged the blasphemous Koran by bringing the Jews back to their Promised Land. The battle has been engaged for 50 years now, and yet this generation still refuses to acknowledge what is taking place. This is a religious war being waged by the God of the Bible over His right to the Holy Land. It is here that all future Biblical prophecy has focus. The LORD Jesus Christ is coming back to the Holy Land, Jerusalem, and the Temple Mount. Islam has taken a death vow never to leave this coming Jewish King have even a toe hold on any part of the Holy Land. Islam is intent on forcing out the occupying Jews, and all remnants of Christianity will go also. Islam must have absolute sovereignty over all of the Holy Land, or they will die in the effort. Perpetual never ending religious war is all Islam understands in these last days.

The God of the Bible fully understands the heart of Islam, and that is why He determined in Ezekiel 38 & 39 to judge this barbarian religion, and wipe them off the planet. The plan of God through the Jews for our generation is coming to a conclusion. Islam is about to invade Israel, and will come face to face with God. The time is short. The die is cast. Islam is about to join all the false religions of the past who thought they could userp the mighty God of the Bible. The God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. The God who sent His only begotten Son to make the only perfect atonement for sin at Calvary.

Friend, if you are without Christ at this stage of time. I pity you. We are about to enter the Kingdom Age. The LORD Jesus Christ is coming again. He is coming to judge an unrepentant generation. Friend, will He be forced to judge you, or will you be counted among the redeemed. The only way to salvation is through Christ. He was the perfect sacrifice for sin at Calvary. He offers forgiveness to all who will come. Won't you seek this Christ of the Bible, and live.

Ya'alon: No More Retreats; Arabs Never Accepted Our Existence


by Gil Ronen

(IsraelNN.com) Lt.-Gen. (res.) Moshe “Bogey” Ya'alon, who is eighth on Likud's Knesset list, opened the first session of the three-day Jerusalem Conference with a Zionist speech of the old-fashioned, hard-hitting kind, that outlined a new strategy for Israel: no more retreats.

“We suffer from inertia in our way of thought,” Ya'alon said. “We pretend that there is a Palestinian entity which has recognized Israel. But from the dawn of Zionism there has not been an Arab movement that was willing to recognize Israel as the sovereign state of the Jewish nation. Mahmoud Abbas said it well before Annapolis: "Why should Judaism, this religion, have a state?" But we didn't want to listen. We blur this in the political and public debate.”

Ya'alon pointed to a disconnection from reality in Israel's strategic thinking. “We pretend that the problem began in the Six Day War,” he told a packed hall at Jerusalem's Regency Hotel. “But did the Arabs recognize us before the Six Day War? We wanted peace in exchange for territories, but we received terror for territories. And when we exited Gaza unilaterally, we received rockets for territory... After the Disengagement we went to Annapolis anyways. We didn't change the concept. Isn't this confusion?”

'Let's try something else'
The former Chief of Staff pooh-poohed the claim that the retreats were forced upon Israel by United States: “The United States did not pressure Israel to go to Oslo, or to carry out the Disengagement, or to do what it did last year with the Syrian President. There is a blurring here also. I think that after September 2000 we should have stopped and said – 'we've tried two states for two peoples, let's try something else.'”

“We pretend that the conflict is the Middle East is a territorial one but it is a clash of civilizations,” Ya'alon said. “We retreat from Lebanon and we think that this will cancel the Hizbullah's reason for existing but the exact opposite happens.”

Confusing the Arabs
Ya'alon outlined his prescription for the next government's policy: “We must stop talking about territories for peace, about the division of Jerusalem, and let the Arabs in Judea and Samaria have autonomy. Just by talking about retreats we give jihadist Islam a boost.”

“Some of our politicians have a hidden agenda of a binational state,” he accused. “This confuses the Arabs. When Israeli politicians turn into our enemies' advisors and we remain silent we confuse them,” he said, in an apparent reference to Ra'am-Ta'al's Ahmed Tibi, who was Yasser Arafat's advisor before running for Knesset. 

He also took jabs at statements made by outgoing Prime Minister Ehud Olmert and Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni, without mentioning their names: “We need leadership that doesn't say 'we are tired of fighting wars.' The nation is not tired and the army is not tired. If the leadership is tired it should be changed. As for another statement, that the state of Israel is finished if we do not return to the 1967 borders: time works in favor of whoever makes good use of it,” Ya'alon stated.


 

 

I love what this crusty old General has to say. How wonderful it would be if the Jews were to stop retreating in the Holy Land. God has given them a great victory in 1967 when all of Jerusalem became Jewish. It was the Jewish politicians who turned this great blessing into a curse by retreating after the victory was won. Islam surrendered the keys to the Temple Mount giving them to Israeli General Moshe Dayan in 1967 who returned them because the politicians did not want to upset the gentile nations. This is when the blessing was turned into a curse which has lasted 40 years now. An entire generation of Jews have grown up under the curse. Yes, old General Bogey is right - It is time for change! It is time to break away from the Road Map two state solution to peace in the Holy Land. It is time to stop trying to turn back God's prophetic clock to pre-1967. It is time to stop negotiating away Judah and Samaria to Abbas, and his Islamic barbarians. It is time for the Jews to reclaim sovereignty over all that was conquered in 1967, and most especially the Temple Mount. 

I only wonder how thrilled President Obama would be if the up-coming Jewish government made such a declaration as being suggested by this old General. What would our Evangelical President have to say if the Jews declared they were going to build the Third Holy Jewish Temple on their Temple Mount? I dare say our Evangelical President would join with all the other gentile leaders of the nations in condemning Israel even if Israel was obeying the God of the Bible. I'm sure Obama would tell all the Evangelicals that this is not the time for Christ to return. The building of the Temple where Christ will come would be a sure way to plunge the World into a massive religious war that could bring us to the brink of Armageddon. Obama might well be willing to say he will not permit such a thing to happen on his watch.

The future of the Holy Land is for the Jews to stop listening to the gentiles, and start obeying God. God has been very patient not only with the Jews, but with the world. The time of His longsuffering is coming to an end. Nothing is being learned. None are turning to God. The time has come for judgment. Friend, I pray you will leave the crowd. I pray the times in which we live are causing you to seek the truth. I pray you will seek Christ as your Savior. Those who call not upon the LORD will be judged. Friend, come to Christ, and live.

Netanyahu: Obama Will Try to Internationalize Jerusalem Sites

by Hana Levi Julian

(IsraelNN.com) Likud party chairman and Knesset Opposition leader MK Binyamin Netanyahu warned at the Jerusalem Conference Wednesday that the Obama administration and leftist Israeli politicians will try to internationalize holy sites in Jerusalem -- and he vowed to fight the move.

Netanyahu told the audience, “Some politicians are trying to blur the importance of the Temple Mount to the Jewish People by referring to it as the ‘Holy Basin.’ We, as Jews, know who built the Temple Mount.”

The term “Holy Basin” refers to the area of the Temple Mount, the Mount of Olives, Mount Zion and a variety of Christian holy sites which the administration of former U.S. President Bill Clinton recommended be administered under a “special regime.”

This raises the issue of who would administer the Temple Mount, since at present the Wakf Islamic Authority controls the site, albeit under Israeli sovereignty. Moreover, the Arab neighborhoods surrounding the Temple Mount, home to tens of thousands of Israeli Arab residents, are also a part of greater Jerusalem, and thereby fall into the same discussion.

Former prime minister Netanyahu, who will likely return to his old leadership role after the February 10 Israel elections, repeatedly emphasized the Likud’s loyalty to the concept of a united Jerusalem.

“We have demonstrated in the past, and will continue to demonstrate our commitment to a complete, undivided Jerusalem,” Netanyahu assured a packed hall at the Jerusalem Regency Hotel, where he opened the final day of the Jerusalem Conference.

“What would have happened had we not built all those neighborhoods” around the central part of the capital after the Six-Day War, Netanyahu asked. “Jerusalem would have been choked.” Moreover, he said, transferring sovereignty over those areas to the Palestinian Authority is not an option.

“Everyone knows what will happen if we were to leave those areas and divide Jerusalem. Someone will enter – and that someone will be Hamas.”

Dividing the capital, or resurrecting the specter of internationalizing the “Holy Basin”, this time at the recommendation of the U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, would cause more problems even for the international community that it would solve, he added.

The three major religions of the world exist in peace, have access to all their sites, only because Jerusalem is united and under Israeli rule, Netanyahu contended, adding in deliberately Hebrew-accented English, “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it!”

 

 

I never liked that phony Christian Clinton. His actions when President proved his lack of commitment to Christ, and the righteous standards that Christ represents. Clinton still believes he did nothing wrong. "Is" is not "is" in his way of justifying his sin. He still does not believe he is an adulterer, but rather sees himself as a victim. The sad part of all this is he remains a member in good standing among the Southern Baptist Denomination. His religious integrity remains snowy white in Southern Baptist circles. It does not surprise me to see our Evangelical President Obama embracing the "Holy Basin" idea contrived by that filthy mind of former President Clinton. A plan to take the Temple Mount out of the hands of God, and His chosen people. A plan for the gentile nations to forever have the sovereignty rather then the Jews. A blasphemous plan coming out of the depths of hell, and as anti-Biblical as any plan could be. It will be Clinton's wife who has the power, and influence to enact such a travesty in the Holy Land. Folks, understand terrible things are happening in the Holy Land, and they are taking place quickly. We are not even one week into the Obama Presidency, and already the Bible is being stripped out of all the planning. God must conform to what the gentile nations decide should be the future of the Holy Land. It matters not what the Bible says, and Obama certainly does not care to learn. The Holy Basin seems all he has on his mind.

I know the gentile nations will never stand for a Jewish Temple being built on the Temple Mount once they have sovereignty over the Holy Basin. The direction Obama, and the world want to go is the secularization of the only Biblical Holy site on the planet. The ultimate aim will be to show to all the people that we don't need a God especially one as presented in the Bible. The internationalizing of the Temple Mount is just another way of saying secularization!

Friend, this evil generation thinks they can be the generation that finally will free themselves from the restrictions coming from a God of righteousness. This computerized society thinks they have intellectually risen to a state where there is no need of a God.  Former President Bill Clinton wants to free himself from the humiliation he faced by his immoral behavior. Rather then repent; He determined through the Holy Basin plan to eventually do away with the God who condemned him. Friend, it is not going to work. All this planning is only bringing judgment to this generation. The politicians all seem ready to push God out. What about you? Will you be judged with them, or will you repent coming to Christ? The tine for decision is now. Will you humble yourself, and come to Christ for the forgiveness of your sin?  The decision is left up to you.

The Holy Basin internationalization includes that part of the City of Jerusalem including Mount Zion, the Temple Mount, and the Mount of Olives with all of it's Christian sites.

 

Joel 3:12-16

12 Let the heathen be wakened, and come up to the valley of Jehoshaphat: for there will I sit to judge all the heathen round about.

13 Put ye in the sickle, for the harvest is ripe: come, get you down; for the press is full, the fats overflow; for their wickedness is great.

14 Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision: for the day of the Lord is near in the valley of decision.

15 The sun and the moon shall be darkened, and the stars shall withdraw their shining.

16 The Lord also shall roar out of Zion, and utter his voice from Jerusalem; and the heavens and the earth shall shake: but the Lord will be the hope of his people, and the strength of the children of Israel.

KJV

Zechariah 14:2-4

2 For I will gather all nations against Jerusalem to battle; and the city shall be taken, and the houses rifled, and the women ravished; and half of the city shall go forth into captivity, and the residue of the people shall not be cut off from the city.

3 Then shall the Lord go forth, and fight against those nations, as when he fought in the day of battle.

4 And his feet shall stand in that day upon the mount of Olives, which is before Jerusalem on the east, and the mount of Olives shall cleave in the midst thereof toward the east and toward the west, and there shall be a very great valley; and half of the mountain shall remove toward the north, and half of it toward the south.

IAF Strikes Gaza Terrorist Who Killed IDF Soldier

by Hana Levi Julian

(IsraelNN.com) Israel Air Force (IAF) war planes struck a wanted terrorist in southern Gaza at midday Thursday in retaliation for his attack on an IDF patrol unit that killed a soldier two days earlier.

The target, 25-year-old Machmad Uda Chamdan Samiri, was critically wounded in the strike, according to officials at Nasser Hospital in the southern Gaza town of Khan Younis. A second terrorist who was a passenger in Samiri's vehicle was also injured in the strike.

Local sources claimed that five children were injured as well.

A statement issued shortly after the strike by the IDF Spokesperson's Unit said that Samiri was a known terror operative of the Global Jihad in Gaza. "Samiri is a former Hamas terror operative who received military training with the Hamas," said the IDF.
 
Samiri was part of the terrorist cell responsible for the detonation of the explosive device near the Kissufim Crossing last Tuesday, which killed an IDF warrant officer and wounded three other soldiers. One officer was seriously wounded in the bombing. In addition, the IDF said that Samiri had participated in the detonation of an explosive device that killed two IDF soldiers near Kissufim in March 2008.
 
"As the sole authority in the Gaza Strip, Hamas bears full responsibility for all terrorist activity originating from Gaza," said the IDF, adding that Israel "will respond to any terror attacks in accordance with decisions made by the Israeli government."

Mitchell Meets with Ashkenazi
IDF Chief of Staff Lt.-Gen. Gabi Ashkenazi met earlier in the day in Tel Aviv with United States Middle East envoy George Mitchell, a follow-up to Mitchell's meetings Wednesday with top government officials.
 
The Chief of Staff presented Mitchell with the main points of Israeli security operations regarding the Palestinian Authority in Judea and Samaria and the goals of the recent Israeli operation in Gaza.

"In addition, they discussed the security challenges faced by the IDF and Israel, the strategic situation in the Middle East and the need to face the global threat of terror," the IDF said.

 

 

Here is the way to deter terrorism. However, it is only a matter of time before the politicians end such effective retaliation by the Jews.  The world politicians care little about a dead Israeli soldier. It is the poor Islamic, Arab, barbarians that must be appeased before the Road Map, and the Holy Basin peace plan can go forward. The internationalization alias secularization of the Holy Land is what Obama wants, and this is the Mitchell marching orders. The Islamic Arabs could even go along with such a blasphemous plan that would include the secularizing of the Temple Mount. The Mount was of no real value to Islam until the Jewish State appeared. Only then did Islam start convincing the world of how precious the Mount was to them. I think as long as the Jews can't get access to the Mount in order to build their Temple, the Arabs wouldn't get irate at it being secularized by the international community. 

I don't know how long this effective strike back quick attitude will last among the Jews. It will take this kind of aggressive boldness for the Jews to ever rebuild their Temple. A change of heart brought about by the reality on the ground could possibly last. A Third Holy Jewish Temple could be in the offering should the Jews reject all the pressure that is now coming from the Obama Administration. I do not expect the Moslem background of Obama to ever make him a real friend to the Jews especially when the Jews get the backbone to listen to the Bible. Biblical Judaism centers in the Temple. Biblical Judaism centers in blood sacrifice for the atonement of sin. The Bible says the Jews are soon to return to their Biblical roots. The deteriorated Jewish religion based on tradition will be replaced with the Book! A Third Holy Jewish Temple with an altar for blood sacrifice will be built. The plans for that Temple are found in ?Ezekiel 40 - 48. How this all happens, and how the events taking place today are part of that - I do not fully understand. I do know the time is right for that Third Temple to be built.

Friend, all the blood sacrifices that will be offered in the Third Holy Jewish Temple will be offered in remembrance! Remembrance of Calvary! The Bible says God is going to take out (rapture) the true "born again" Christians, and then He will turn the hearts of the Jews to their Messiah/King. The LORD Jesus Christ is coming again to the Holy Land, Jerusalem, and the Temple Mount. Are you ready? Have you come to Christ for the forgiveness of your sin? Have you been washed in His sin cleansing blood? Only the saved will be passed over by judgment when Christ returns in great glory.

3 And many people shall go and say, Come ye, and let us go up to the mountain of the Lord , to the house of the God of Jacob; and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths: for out of Zion shall go forth the law, and the word of the Lord from Jerusalem.

4 And he shall judge among the nations, and shall rebuke many people: and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruninghooks: nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more.

5 O house of Jacob, come ye, and let us walk in the light of the Lord .

4 But in the last days it shall come to pass, that the mountain of the house of the Lord shall be established in the top of the mountains, and it shall be exalted above the hills; and people shall flow unto it.

2 And many nations shall come, and say, Come, and let us go up to the mountain of the Lord , and to the house of the God of Jacob; and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths: for the law shall go forth of Zion, and the word of the Lord from Jerusalem.

3 And he shall judge among many people, and rebuke strong nations afar off; and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruninghooks: nation shall not lift up a sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more.

Carter: Israel must Negotiate with Hamas

by Avraham Zuroff

(IsraelNN.com) Former President Jimmy Carter says that peace in the Mideast is realistic. However, he contends, Israel must be willing to negotiate with Hamas.

In an interview Tuesday with Charlie Rose on PBS, the former president said that President Barack Obama personally promised him that he would start working on the Middle East peace process at the beginning of his term, and not wait until the last year of his term.

“Apparently he has done that already with his public statements and telephone calls," Carter noted approvingly, adding that the first four phone calls Obama made were to the Middle East region. Former U.S. President Bill Clinton had criticized Carter for waiting to host a peace summit at Camp David between Israeli and Arab leaders at the end of his presidency. Former U.S. President George Bush also did not address Middle East peace until late in his term.

Carter did not mince words with his opinion of the policies of Bush. “I’m relieved that he’s been replaced. I think that he probably had the most disastrous term relating to foreign policy of any previous president, and he removed our nation’s reputation as a champion on human rights,” Carter stated.

President Obama also immediately appointed George Mitchell, and sent him to the Middle East on a fact-finding mission "to bring peace to the region," Carter observed. He said he was pleased with Obama’s choice. “I talked to [Mitchell] twice since he was chosen. I am thankful that he was chosen. I think he is the best possible American that could be chosen,” Carter said.

When asked if he thinks that it is possible for peace in the Middle East to reign, as he advocates in his recent book, Carter said that he indeed does. “I think that it is a propitious time for it. We’ve gotten into a crisis time,” explaining that Israel will have to decide whether peace will be negotiated through a two-state or one-state solution to peace in the region. He assessed Israel’s current modus operandi as working on a one-state solution. “That’s the way that Israel is going now, including Barak, Olmert, and Ms. Livni,” stated Carter, referring to Israel’s current leaders who have publicly called for a two-state solution.

Carter also mentioned that Jewish residence in Judea and Samaria has “made it increasingly unviable that the Palestinians could make a two-state solution likely.”

Carter said he hopes that the new U.S. envoy can meet with Hamas in brokering a peace agreement. “He will have to. Anyone who wants to negotiate for peace in the Mideast will have to speak with Hamas, who now governs 1.5 million civilians in Gaza,” Carter emphasized.

Regarding the Hamas terrorist group’s firing of rockets into Israel, Carter blames Israel for not opening up the borders and said that Hamas is merely interested in drawing world attention to the plight of Gaza civilians, who are without food and water. Carter claimed that Hamas is not interested in hurting Israelis. As "proof", the former president stated that although hundreds of rockets were fired into Sderot by Hamas between 2007 and June 2008, “only one Israeli was killed in Sderot.”

Carter, who considers himself a peacemaker, nevertheless spoke with Hamas leaders in Gaza and condemned the rocket firing as an act of terrorism. “The Hamas leaders told me that they wanted to bring international attention that they were starving to death. Forty-nine Palestinians were being killed per month on average,” Carter stated.

In April, Carter met with Hamas in Damascus, and said they told him that they would stop firing rockets into Israel when Israel would send food and water into Gaza. Carter, however, blames Israel for keeping the borders closed as a way of punishing Hamas, “because they don’t want to recognize Hamas. They want to see Fatah in power,” Carter said.

Israel: Half of Supplies were Diverted by Hamas
Israeli figures show that Carter’s claims are unfounded, however. Since the beginning of Operation ‘Cast Lead’, 74,979 tons of humanitarian supplies have been transferred to Gaza. In addition, 6,682,451 liters of fuel have been conveyed through Nahal Oz and Kerem Shalom. In the ongoing humanitarian effort, since Israel declared its unilateral ceasefire more than a week ago (18 January 2009), 35,404 tons of aid has been delivered to Gaza and 2,873,900 liters of fuel.

Colonel Nir Press, head of the Coordination and Liaison Administration, stated last April that the Arabs in Gaza are staging an energy crisis while instigating a strike and protest rallies. He claims that the closed filling stations, the long lines of people and vehicles waiting many hours to fill their tanks, are all part of a planned Hamas media campaign being conducted at the expense of the civilian population - a crisis caused by their failure to pump available fuel supplies from the Nahal Oz Palestinian fuel depot. 

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs has stated that Hamas is intentionally harming the civilian population in the Gaza Strip by not allowing the supply of fuel for humanitarian purposes, and preventing the distribution of fuel to civilian filling stations. In addition, a substantial share of the fuel supplies - almost half - was diverted for use by the Hamas terror organization and its operatives.

In addition, the Ministry adds that deadly Hamas attacks at the Gaza crossings stand as additional testimony to the terror from Gaza directed at Israel, while attempting to create a crisis and to harness Arab public opinion against Israel as part of this campaign.

“The cynical use of the Palestinian population, as well as the stoppage of the supply of fuel for civilian and humanitarian use, could have been prevented by drawing the available fuel from the depot at the Palestinian terminal and directing it to humanitarian/civilian needs and to local filling stations, for the benefit of the residents of Gaza,” the Ministry stated.

 

 

I had thought Carter was suffering from some mental problem, but now am convinced it is Satanic influence not human failing. It is clear to me Carter is suffering from Satanically induced anti-Semitism! He has whitewashed all Jews as being deceptive in their dealings with the gentiles. Why would he condemn Olmert, Barak, and Livni who are the most liberal political promoters of the Road Map two state solution other then that even these Jews are being deceptive in his mind. All their rhetoric is a lie according to Carter because they are Jews, and you can't trust a Jew to be truthful. Folks, that is anti-Semitism! According to Carter all the time the Olmert government was promoting the Road Map two state peace plan for the Holy Land they were really working on a one state Jewish only plan. These liberal Jews are anti-Bible Jews. Olmert has publicly told the Jews that they must forget the promises made in the Bible of a Jewish kingdom Age. He has told them those are but dreams that will never come to pass. Olmert's world view is that the Jews must submit to the gentile powers if they ever want peace. The Jews tried that for the last 2000 years, and all it brought was the Holocaust! This kind of Jewish leadership does not work, and they never seem to learn. They should be friends with liberal gentiles like Carter, but instead Carter sells them down the river in an anti-Semitic rage. He turns on them implying they are liars and deceivers. It is the God of the Bible who continues to frustrate any two state solution to peace in the Holy Land, but Carter puts the blame on the liberal Olmert Government as the reason why the Road Map has been frustrated.

Next, Carter focuses his anti-Semitic tirade on the Jews he hates the most. The Independent Fundamental Jewish Settlers living in Judah and Samaria. These are the most obedient to the Bible Jews living in Israel. It would be expected that this group would find the greatest condemnation from this former Southern Baptist Sunday School teacher. It is Carter who said "Jewish residence in Judea and Samaria has “made it increasingly unviable that the Palestinians could make a two-state solution likely" It is the God of the Bible who brought about this miraculous Third Exodus. It is the God of the Bible who commanded obedient Jews to occupy their Promised Land. It is Carter who blurts out in a rage that it is the Jews who are the problem. I only wonder which Bible Carter reads? I only wonder what kind of theology causes him to be so anti-Semitic? He is like a blind man seeing only what his mind can imagine rather then the reality on the ground.

The problem with Carter is that when Satan dangled the false theology called replacement theology before Carter he took it hook, line, and sinker. This is the theology that spins the Bible truths into a Satanic lie. It goes something like this: When the Romans crucified Christ it was under Jewish instigation, and the Jews forever lost favor with God. All the future promises made in the Bible for the Jews was now now to be replaced with Christians rather then Jews. Christians by their good works such as Habitant for Humanity will make the world such a better place that the world will agree to give the Holy Land to them not the Jews, and when Christ comes to establish His Kingdom in the Holy Land,  at Jerusalem, and on the Temple Mount it will be Christian not Jewish. Carter believes in a Christian Kingdom overseen by Southern Baptists rather then a Jewish Kingdom ruled over by a Jewish Messiah/King. The Jews returning to the Holy Land, and showing that a literal interpretation of the Bible is correct has pulled the rug from under Carter's replacement theology. In order for Carter to save face for all his Sunday School teachings he must get rid of the Jews! He could repent coming to Christ, but his face saving is more important. So Carter must do all he can to get the Jews out of the Holy Land. The gentile Islamic Arab barbarians are a better choice in Carter's view then the dreaded Jews who make him out for the false teacher, and liar that he is.

Friend, where Carter can't repent - you can! You can see the hand of God working in the Holy Land preparing the way for the return of Christ in this our generation. Christ opposed the religious and political leaders at His first coming, and dear friend He will oppose the pompous religious Southern Baptists, Evangelicals, and all the other Denominational heretics of today. It is Christ, not religion where you must go. It is Christ who made the perfect atonement for sin at Calvary. Only Christ can wash away all the sin in your heart. Won't you repent coming to this Biblical Christ, and live?

 

John 14:1-4

14 Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me.

2 In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.

3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.

4 And whither I go ye know, and the way ye know.

KJV
