Muslim Journalist on Trial for Supporting Israel
by Hana Levi Julian
(IsraelNN.com) Muslim journalist Salah Uddin Shoaib Choudhury is on trial in Bangladesh for the crime of supporting Israel, although the official charges are listed as treason and blasphemy. Choudhury, who has urged the Bangladeshi government to recognize the State of Israel, was back in the courtroom Thursday to face allegations of spying for the Mossad, Israel’s international espionage agency.
Although the government privately agreed to drop the charges, which officials quietly admitted were false, the Public Prosecutor said in the brief court session that he intends to proceed with the case.
A new trial date has been set for July 18th. If convicted, Choudhury will be executed by hanging or be sentenced to 30 years in prison – itself a death sentence, according to Bangladeshi sources.
The Muslim writer was arrested several years ago by agents of the previous government as he was leaving the country for a speaking engagement in Israel. The initial charge was violation of the country’s ban on travel to the Jewish State, which officials used as an excuse to torture and hold the journalist in prison for 17 months.
The real issue, according to the Independent Media Review Analysis (IMRA), is his Zionism, which he expresses in articles that also expose the rise of radical Islam in Bangladesh.
Intense pressure by U.S. Congressman Mark Kirk (R-IL) and human rights activist Dr. Richard L. Benkin led to Choudhury’s release, but the reprieve was temporary. A resolution by the U.S. Congress in March of this year, calling on the government to drop the charges went unheeded.
According to IMRA, there is enough evidence to prove Choudhury’s innocence. The Bangladeshi government, say numerous advocates for the Muslim journalist, knows the charges are false. A coup in January 2007 brought in a new administration, which claims to be free of Islamic radicalism, but the conduct of Choudhury’s case belies the statement.
His brother, Sohail, who sent a desperate appeal to the international community for assistance in saving Choudhury’s life, says the charge stems from “rumors originating in Saudi Arabia.”
“His country proclaims that Shoaib’s support for Israel is treason because it is in opposition to their policy and that is blasphemous, a charge they find convenient……..He is on trial because he writes plainly about the danger of extremist madrassas teaching children as young as five to hate Jews and Israel…..Shoaib works tirelessly for interfaith understanding. Bangladesh considers this treason and blasphemy,” wrote the journalist’s brother, who appealed to the international community to intervene in the case.

Terrorists Deny Abbas's Disarm Claims
by Aaron Klein, WorldNetDaily.com
(IsraelNN.com) Members of Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas' declared military wing, the Al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigades, today denied claims by Abbas he asked the terror group to turn in their weapons, stating officials instead have encouraged them to continue their "resistance" activities.
Abbas pledged during a summit with Prime Minister Ehud Olmert Monday he would immediately dismantle all militias in the West Bank not connected to security forces of his Fatah party. Abbas deputies have been telling the international media the Al-Aqsa Brigades agreed to turn in their weapons in exchange for guarantees that Israel not try to arrest or kill them.
"No one from Abbas' office ever asked us to disarm," Nasser Abu Aziz, the deputy commander of the Al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigades in the northern Samaria, told WorldNetDaily (WND). "We will never disarm until all issues are settled, including a complete Israeli withdrawal from the West Bank and Jerusalem and the right of return for all Palestinian refugees."
Abu Yousuf, a leader of the Al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigades in Ramallah, told WND Abbas' claims the Brigades will disarm "are more of a message meant for the Israelis, the Americans and the international community." "No one (from Abbas' office) addressed a single member of the Brigades and asked us to turn in our weapons," he said.
Zacharias Zubeidi, leader of the Al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigades in the northern Samaria city of Jenin, told WND the decree from Abbas' office for armed groups to be dismantled "has nothing to do with the Brigades. It's meant for Hamas. Abbas recognizes the Brigades as a legitimate source of resistance."
In March 2002, after an Al-Aqsa Brigade suicide bombing in Jerusalem, the group was designated as a foreign terrorist organization by the United States Department of State. In a scenario similar to Abbas's statements this week, late PLO Leader Yasser Arafat publicly condemned the Brigade while days later a Brigade leader, Naser Badawi, told the New York Times that Arafat had, at that point, never approached the group to ask it to stop its suicide bombings.
Together with the Islamic Jihad terror group, the Al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigades took responsibility for every suicide bombing in Israel the past two years. The Brigades regularly carries out shooting attacks and has taken credit for firing hundreds of rockets from the Gaza Strip aimed at nearby Jewish population centers.
Many members of the Brigades openly serve in Fatah militias, including Force 17, Abbas' presidential guard units which serve as de facto police officers in the Judea and Samaria.
In line with pledges made at Monday's summit in Sharm el-Sheikh, Abbas' office today issued a decree for all armed groups to turn in their weapons.
"On the basis of the declaration of a state of emergency in the Palestinian territories, and by virtue of my authority, all armed militias, groups and brigades that do not belong in practice to the security services shall be treated as illegal organizations," read the first order.
"The government must halt the phenomenon of armed groups, prevent the bearing of arms and confiscate guns, explosives and any type of weaponry purchased illegally, since they endanger the public order," the decree continued.
Fatah offers Al-Aqsa Brigades leaders shelter
Sources in the Al-Aqsa Brigades said officials from Abbas' office encouraged them in recent days to tell members of the international news media they are ready to hand in their weapons.
"But on the ground, not a single weapon has been turned in and it will remain this way," a Brigades source said.
Brigades sources said Fatah officials have invited some Brigades leaders to seek shelter in PA security buildings in Judea and Samaria.
Some Brigades members the past few years have lived regularly in PA compounds, including the Mukata, late PLO Leader Yasser Arafat's headquarters in Ramallah.
The Brigades sources said they were asked to leave the compounds last month, after the Israel Defense Forces threatened operations to arrest Brigades members. But the Brigades sources said they were told this week they could return to the PA compounds.
"It seems the threat of arrest from Israel for the time being is no longer there," said a Brigades leader.
These Islamic barbarians are smart. They picked up on the fact that puffed up gullible politicians making a name for themselves hear only what they want to hear. Islam knows they can use the pride of the politicians to their advantage. That is why Abbas can decree all arms be turned into him in Judah and Samaria knowing it will never happen, but the politicians will only hear his words despite what the reality on the ground may be. Olmert and Bush want to be lied to. If Abbas told the truth, and said he could decree until he was blue in the face, but the terrorists operating in Judah and Samaria will never turn in their weapons then both Bush and Olmert would tell him not to say anything at all. It is because Abbas says what they want to hear that he is getting all these millions upon millions of dollars.
The Road Map is based totally on the premise that we keep our word, and the Arabs lie. This fact is all that keeps the Road Map alive. The Arabs that do tell the truth say they will never rest until every Jew living in the Holy Land is dead. This phony peace plan called the Road Map dissolves on it's own once the truth be told.
The latest truth is that the Olmert government has given assurance to the barbarians of Judah and Samaria that they need not fear that the IDF will come after them. They once again have safe-haven in Palestinian Arab strongholds where Abbas has just taken control. These are the very people his decree to turn in their arms was given. I suppose this is more of that good will Olmert has become so famous over. What a shock should the IDF go after them, and kill them for their barbarous acts against the Jewish civilian population. How Bush would be beside himself if the IDF raided Palestinian Arab strongholds of Abbas in Jewish controlled Judah and Samaria where the Al - Aqsa Martyrs Brigade and Islamic Jihad prepare their child suicide bombers to attack Israeli children.
Folks, this is the politics of peace in the Holy Land. I hope you can see the truth through all the lies? Peace is only going to come through the return of the LORD Jesus Christ. It is never going to come through the good intensions of multiple religious politicians. It is only the Christ of the Bible who is without spot or blemish who can establish true peace in the Holy Land, and throughout the world. This miraculous Third Exodus of our generation is the first step! The Kingdom of heaven is at hand! The same Christ of whom John the Baptist introduced to the world is coming again. He is coming in judgment! The lying politicians have their place in the fire and brimstone of an eternal hell. The greatest lie is to decree yourself a Christian without ever having come to Christ. The eternal Lake of Fire will be filled with such! Friend, what about you? Will you be counted among those who came to Christ, and are born again, or will you be counted among the liars? The choice is yours. Won't you come to Christ, and live? It is not by doing your best. It is by coming to Christ.
20I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.
21I do not frustrate the grace of God: for if righteousness come by the law, then Christ is dead in vain.

Flaming Car Rams U.K. Airport; 2 Arrests
By IAN STEWART
GLASGOW, Scotland (AP) - Two men rammed a flaming sport utility vehicle into the main terminal of Glasgow airport Saturday, crashing into the glass doors at the entrance and sparking a fire, witnesses said. Police said two suspects were arrested.
The airport - Scotland's largest - was evacuated and all flights suspended, a day after British police thwarted a plot to bomb central London, discovering two cars abandoned with loads of gasoline, gas canisters and nails.
"One has to conclude ... these are linked," Dame Pauline Neville-Jones, former head of Britain's joint intelligence committee, told Sky News. "This is a very young government, and we may yet see further attacks."
Britain's prime minister, Gordon Brown, who took office only Wednesday, was being briefed on developments by his officials, Downing Street said.
In Glasgow, the green SUV barreled toward the building at full speed shortly after 3 p.m., hitting security barriers before crashing into the glass doors and exploding, witnesses said. Two men jumped out of the burning vehicle, one of them engulfed in flames, they said.
"The car came speeding past at about 30 mph. It was approaching the building quickly," said Scott Leeson, who was nearby at the time. "Then the driver swerved the car around so he could ram straight in to the door. He must have been trying to smash straight through."
Two men were arrested, Strathclyde Police spokeswoman Lisa O'Neil said.
Passengers fled running and screaming from the busy terminal, Margaret Hughes told the British Broadcasting Corp. "There was black smoke gushing out where the car had obviously been driven into the airport," she said.
Flames and black smoke rose from the vehicle outside the main entrance. Police said it was unclear if anyone was injured. Other passengers were stranded, with at least one airplane grounded on the runway, the BBC said.
The incident also comes exactly one week before the second anniversary of the July 7 bombings that killed 52 people.
Leeson said bollards - security posts outside the entrance - stopped the driver from barreling into the bustling terminal at Glasgow's airport.
"He's trying to get through the main door frame but the bollards have stopped him from going through. If he'd got through, he'd have killed hundreds, obviously," he said.
Leeson said only the nose of the vehicle made it inside the building. Richard Grey told the BBC that the vehicle was lodged into the center of the terminal's main entrance.
"The jeep is completely on fire and it exploded not long after. It exploded at the entrance to the terminal," witness Stephen Clarkson told the BBC. "It may have been an explosion of petrol in the tank because it was not a massive explosion."
Two men - one of them engulfed in flames - were in the SUV, witnesses told BBC News executive Helen Boaden, who was at the airport at time. She described the men as South Asian.
Clarkson described him as a large South Asian man. "His whole body was on fire.... He was just talking gibberish," he told the BBC.
"An Asian guy had been pulled out of the car by two police officers he was trying to fight off and they'd got him on the floor," Grey told the BBC.
Boaden said police "wrestled him to the ground - the fire was burning through his clothes - and finally put him out with a fire extinguisher."
Lesson said an airport officials did not think the incident was an accident.
"He said the men in the car got out and started throwing petrol about - that must be how it caught fire," he said.
Another witness, Fiona Tracey, described a "bang" coming from the SUV. The vehicle was on fire and "every now and again there was a bang coming off it. ... There was definitely a bang," she told Sky News television.
Grey said the car did not explode. "There were a few pops and bangs that seemed to be the tires and the petrol."
Woe to those of this generation that worship the beast that is presented to the world in the Koran. The false Arabic god called Allah. The god of the barbarians to whom these two barbarians dedicated their terrorist act as they tried to murder innocent families with woman and children in Glasgow. Their intent was to burn them all. I'm told nothing is more painful then serious burns. The worst job in the hospital is the one who must daily scrub the dead skin off the burn victims while they sit in the whirlpool. The healing process is long and painful. The Bible says the torment of those who are cast into hell is far worse. It never ends! There is no healing in hell. There is only eternal torment. Those who tormented others in this life will find their sins never find forgiveness. Those who spit in the face of God by rejecting the salvation He offers freely by grace through the LORD Jesus Christ will find nothing but the wrath of God abiding on them for ever and ever! The creator God of this world will not be mocked! His judgments are final, and never to be reviewed. The multiple rejections of Christ in this lifetime only increase the torments of hell. Each day of rejection kindles the fires that much higher. Oh friend, by not coming to Christ for salvation puts you in an extremely serious position. You compound your torment! Hear the words of the LORD Jesus Christ:
43And if thy hand offend thee, cut it off: it is better for thee to enter into life maimed, than having two hands to go into hell, into the fire that never shall be quenched:
44Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.
Mohamed read the Bible before he wrote the blasphemous Koran. He quotes the Bible often in the Koran, but he rejected both the Jewish God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, and the Jewish Messiah revealed in the New Testament as the LORD Jesus Christ. He replaced the Bible with his false concept of an Arabic god which he called Allah. The god of Abraham, Ishmael, and Esau. The Arabic world rejected the Bible as venomously as did Mohamed. Today, these proud and haughty Islamists boldly proclaim to the world that they will replace the Bible with the Koran in the Holy Land. They will exterminate the Jews, and any who would stand with the Jews. The London bombings of yesterday, and this sad demonstration of barbarianism in Glasgow today is directly related to the Islamic take-over of the Holy Land.
Why so much hate? It is because the God of the Bible condemns them for all eternity. Allah is a lie. The Koran is nothing but blasphemy. The seed of Esau the real father of Islam as it is today is hated from the very beginning, and condemned forever in the Bible. Only the God of the Bible who knows all things from beginning to end can make such judgments. The judgment on Islam is already an eternal fact. It is no wonder Islam hates the God of the Bible. The God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. The God who has only one begotten Son, and it is not Mohamed who's name is never even hinted as something holy.
2I 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,
3And I hated Esau, and laid his mountains and his heritage waste for the dragons of the wilderness.
13As it is written, Jacob have I loved, but Esau have I hated.
Friend, God already knows if you will receive Christ as your Savior. The one who does not know is you yourself. The depths of the God of the Bible go far beyond the comprehensions of mere men. What I do know is the decision to come to Christ for forgiveness of sin is yours. The refusal is applied to your account 100%. The personal torments of an eternal hell is fully laid upon you. The LORD Jesus Christ paid the price for your sin at Calvary, but you must humble yourself by coming to Him for the application of His sin cleansing blood. Oh friend, don't be guilty of spiting in the face of Christ's finished work on the cross by never coming. Do not abide in the wrath of God's hate. Won't you come right now to the love Christ offers, and live.

Shin Bet foils Hamas's plans to control Temple Mount
Agents arrest 11 in year-long sting on Hamas investments, buildings
Hamas attempts to take over control of the Temple Mount as well as spread its terror ideology and recruit new members in Jerusalem has been foiled by the Shin Bet (Israel Security Agency,) senior Israeli security official announced today.
Officials told The Jerusalem Post that Hamas has invested millions of shekels in recent years in Jerusalem charities, religious institutions, and construction on the Temple Mount in an effort to recruit Israel Arab resident of Jerusalem into its ranks and strengthen bolstering its presence in the capital. One official said that Hamas also tried to infiltrate members into the Temple Mount as maintenance staff, in addition to its religious leaders who preach, give tours, and teach Koran classes there.
During a year-long operation, the Shin Bet has arrested 11 Hamas officials based in Jerusalem, 10 of whom held Israeli identity cards. In order to implement its goal of "brainwashing" local Muslims with violent Hamas ideology, the terror group had also set up a number of institutions of both religious and semi-religious nature to front illegal activities. According to officials, there are no Hamas institutions currently active in Jerusalem.
According to The Post report, the Shin Bet also cut off a major artery of Hamas's funding by arresting a senior official running a courier service that transferred funds from West Bank and abroad to the Hamas headquarters in Jerusalem. The Hamas party headquarters in Jerusalem were funded by Hamas's head offices in Syria, as well as a network of institutions in Saudi Arabia.
Hamas wants the Temple Mount. They know whoever controls the Temple Mount controls the future of the Holy Land. They know all hope of both Judaism and Christianity rests on the Temple Mount. The coming of the Jewish Messiah by religious Jews, or the second coming of the LORD Jesus Christ by Christians are both linked in the Bible to the Temple Mount. Hamas knows the secular politicians of the West care nothing about God, or His Holy Temple. The politicians care nothing for the Bible, or the God it represents. Islam knows the time is right for them to take this Holy site for Allah. Their goal is to replace the Bible with the Koran as the book of the Holy Land. Their goal is to replace the absolutely Holy God of the Bible with the sexually perverted god of the barbarian. The god whom the suicide bombers glorify as they murder innocent civilians in his name. The god who promises a sexually perverted paradise to the worst killers of our century. This filthy Arabic god concocted by Mohamed is openly challenging the God of the Bible to a showdown. The place is the Holy Land. The city where the actual confrontation is going to take place is Jerusalem, and the very spot will be the Temple Mount. The entire credibility of the oldest religious book which has stood the test of time is now laid on the line in this our generation. The upstart Koran seeks to replace the God of Israel with the blasphemous god of the Arabs. They intend to replace the LORD Jesus Christ with their own blasphemer Mohamed. They are telling the world that Allah is going to raise up all the dead Moslems for a final battle to dominate the world. The extermination of the Jews living in the Holy Land who are less then 1% of the world's population is the only way Allah will bring about this resurrection unto a final Islamic victory. It is at the Temple Mount where either the Koran, or the Bible will prove true.
Hamas understands all this, and are making sure that Islam will always have the upper hand over the Mount. Hamas has visions of grandeur right now thinking they will lead the disorganized hordes of Moslems to victory. The Bible says it will not be Hamas. The Last Jihad Islamic invasion of Israel will come from the North, East, and South. The Chief Prince of the North will lead the way quickly joined by the house of Togarmah.
3And say, Thus saith the Lord God; Behold I am against thee, O Gog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal:
6Gomer, and all his bands; the house of Togarmah of the north quarters, and all his bands: and many people with thee.
Should this prophecy out of Ezekiel take place in our generation the "Chief Prince" would be the Islamic hordes out of the old USSR. The house of Togarmah would be the Islamic hordes from Turkey. Out of the East will come Persia which is non other then Iran possibly joined by Iraq if the US pull out takes place allowing Iran free reign over all the Eastern barbarians. Closing the Southern Islamic pincher movement will be Ethiopia, and Libya. The Islamic barbarian hordes of North Africa.
5Persia, Ethiopia, and Libya with them; all of them with shield and helmet:
It is an unwholesome trio doomed for destruction by the God of the Bible. Read Ezekiel 39 to discover the Biblical fate of these Islamic invaders. What about you? What will your fate be when the Bible proves itself true one more time. Now that the LORD Jesus Christ has come fulfilling all the Old Testament prophecies about the coming Messiah, the Bible calls all to come to Him for salvation. Not to come is to reject Him. It is that simple. The LORD Jesus Christ being lifted up to Calvary where He willingly sacrificed Himself as the only perfect sacrifice that would be acceptable to a Holy God for sin. Do you believe? Have you come to this Christ of the Bible for the forgiveness of your sin?

Ex-IDF chief: Two-state solution is dead
Israel cannot obtain peace and security by supporting Palestinian moderates and giving up land for the creation of a potential Palestinian state, former IDF chief of staff Moshe Ya'alon said yesterday. "We have to replace the concept of a two-state solution - it is not relevant anymore," Ya'alon told Army Radio. "This is not pessimism, but realism. It is not practical to keep assuming it is the answer." Ya'alon said that Israel must examine its approach to the traditional peace process in light of the Hamas terror group's violent coup of the Gaza Strip last month, made possible by Israel's withdrawal from the Strip two years ago. Ya'alon exhorted the Israeli leadership to learn the lessons of Gaza and not repeat the mistakes of the past by now pulling out of the West Bank entirely.
I only wish the Two-State solution were dead. It is a blasphemous idea concocted by the atheistic Russians, and quickly supported by the godless Europeans. It is aimed at giving the terror minded Arab barbarians the same status as the civilized Jewish State of Israel. It is aimed at lifting the barbarians to an even higher status then the apple of God's eye. The purpose is to reduce the Bible to just another insignificant corrupted book about religion, and actually replacing it with the Koran. The Road Map more then any other factor in this our generation brings down the Bible while lifting up the Koran. The Road Map is the darling boy of all who are against God in the world today. It is clearly a rejection of the God of the Bible, and the uplifting of the blasphemous Allah. Even more importantly - it does not work! Here is the best that sin filled politicians can come up with as a peace plan for the Holy Land. It has become a laughing stock. The unilateral withdrawal of the Jews from Gaza was the first step that was to demonstrate to the barbarous Palestinian Arabs that the civilized Jews have peaceful intent, and that the more moderate Arabs have an open door to reciprocate. What happened? The barbarous Arabs voted the worst, most violent, killers from among them to govern their new founded freedom. All the withdrawal did was empower the worst of the Arabs not the moderates. The Palestinian Arabs don't want peace with the Jews. They only want to murder them so they can gain religious stature with Allah. What foolishness to call peace a plan that empowers the Islamic Arabs to ruthlessly murder Jewish civilians.
God is teaching this generation a lesson. A lesson that is going unheeded. The Holy Land is His, and no nation, or coalition of nations has the right to determine any other future then what God has revealed in the Bible. The barbarians are not going to inherit the Holy Land God promised to the Jews. Even the great power of the USA now collated with the Russians and Europeans thanks to the Evangelical White House is not going to stop God from fulfilling His plan for the peace of the Holy Land. The plan of God in the Bible is not the blasphemous Road Map! It is the soon coming of the Prince of Peace! He is not coming as one of those opulent Islamic princes, but as the Jewish Messiah through the seed of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.
Friend, the future is only for those who are born again! Those who have come to Christ for salvation. Those who were lost in sin, but came to Christ for forgiveness from their sin through His sacrificial blood. Won't you come to this Christ of the Bible. The future ruler of the planet. A rule which will establish perfect Biblical righteousness. Won't you come to Christ who has the power to cleanse, and make you fit for this coming era of perfect peace?

Fatah's Al-Aksa Brigades Terror Group Remains Defiant, Reckless
by Ezra HaLevi
(IsraelNN.com) Fatah’s pledge to disarm its Al Aksa Brigades terrorist group has not been fulfilled and the group’s terrorists still rule the streets of PA-controlled Judea and Samaria.
The group issued a press release Friday night demanding Fatah chief Mahmoud Abbas (Abu Mazen) fire Fatah’s Prime Minister Salem Fayad. Fayad, who is trusted by the US and controls the bank account through which Western monies are funneled to the PA, was appointed when Fatah established its own government in Judea and Samaria after being overthrown in Gaza.
He has recently called for Al-Aksa Bridages to be dismantled and warned Islamic preachers that they would be arrested if they incited against Fatah.
Al-Aksa Brigades accused Fayad of “providing Hamas with a free service and giving it an alibi to attack the emergency government and its policies, since such statements [calling for local terror groups to be disarmed] indicate that this government is against the resistance.”
The group also quoted Fayad’s interview with CNN where he claimed that local terror gangs had “brought misery to the Palestinian people” and said: “Now the truth is clear to us. Fayad is America’s man in Palestine, he is the first Palestinian Prime Minister who carries an American citizenship.”
Al-Aksa Terrorists Use Guns At High School Finals
Dozens of armed Fatah terrorists claiming membership in the Al-Aksa Brigades group stormed high school matriculation exams in Shechem Saturday, shooting in the air. They expressed outrage that they were not being allotted a special room to take tests in, which they claimed was necessary “for security reasons” as many are wanted by Israel. School official were hesitant to grant the request due to fear of widespread cheating.
More than 500 students had to wait hours until they were permitted to continue their exams.
The Al-Aksa terrorists reportedly are seeking to obtain high-school diplomas in preparation for being hired by Fatah’s security forces, which offer a higher salary for high-school graduates.
Fatah will reportedly offer amnesty to terrorists who join the security forces, offering them a salary and the ability to keep their weapons in return for loyalty to Abbas and Fayad. The terrorists who join the forces will presumably receive American military training together with the rest of Fatah’s armed groups.
I doubt The Al Aksa Brigade will be forced to tote the line in Judah and Samaria. Abbas was never able nor did he ever even make an attempt to control them all the time he was in charge in Gaza. It is foolish to think he will do now in Judah and Samaria what he never did in Gaza. It is all talk for Western ears, but the Arab street knows the truth about what is never going to happen. The Islamic barbarians all want to murder Jews, and who leads the carnage is not so important to the Arab Palestinians just as long as it gets done. Hamas will most probably take control of Judah and Samaria anyway. Fatah and the Al Aksa Brigades will only survive if under the Hamas banner. The first all Arab elections in Judah and Samaria will undoubtedly go as did the elections in the Gaza. The Arab Palestinian people want only to kill Jews. Should they not be powerful enough to exterminate the Jews in one fell sweep, they will torment them forever. The Road Map is already designed to function this way. The IDF has no intent to stop the rockets raining down on the conservative Independent Fundamental Jewish Settlements, but rather the government plan is to enforce new building codes requiring concrete roofs and walls. Let the conservative settlers foot the bill is now the Olmert plan as he gets sucked deeper and deeper into the Road Map. A bomb shelter type existence for the Jewish people is how the Road Map has evolved since the first step of the unilateral withdrawal from Gaza. The demons of hell have been released in this first stage of withdrawal. I only wonder what will be released with the next step of withdrawal from Judah and Samaria surrendering this massive part of the Holy Land to Abbas, and then eventually to Hamas? Olmert is politically committed to this next step, and like a blind man heading for a precipice the willing ignorance on his part makes disaster inevitable. I am especially grieved by the willing ignorance I see from our own Evangelical White House which adopted this blasphemous Road Map, and pushed the Jews into this dangerous situation.
Friend, we live in precarious, but exciting times. None of this is a surprise to the God of the Bible. Islam is doomed in Ezekiel 39, and dispensational change is inevitable. In the midst of the billions of lives that will be caught up in these end time events, God still has great intrest in you. He sent His only begotten Son to die at Calvary as the only acceptable perfect sacrifice for sin that can be presented to the Holy God of the Bible. Jesus suffered and died so you can be saved. His blood can wash away your sin, but you must come to Him first. Yes, there is a first step in becoming a Biblical Christian, and that is coming to Christ with all your heart, Soul, and might. Friend, won't you come to this Christ for salvation? Come to His love before it is too late. The Bible warns those who refuse to come that they will face His wrath. Eternal judgment without reprieve! Oh friend, come to the all knowing Christ, and you will stand in His righteousness. All your sins will be washed away in his redeeming blood.
9And they sung a new song, saying, Thou art worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation;

Gov't Votes to Free 250 Terrorists
by Hillel Fendel
(IsraelNN.com) The government, in its Sunday morning weekly session, approved the release of 250 convicted Arab terrorists from prison, as a goodwill gesture to PA chief Abu Mazen. Only terrorists without "blood on their hands" are to be released.
Some of the terrorists being freed attempted to murder Israelis but missed their targets.
Voting against the proposal were Transportation Minister Sha'ul Mofaz, the four Shas ministers (Yishai, Attias, Nahari and Yitzchak Cohen), and Tourism Minister Yitzchak Aharonovitch of Yisrael Beiteinu. Yisrael Beiteinu leader Strategic Affairs Minister Avigdor Lieberman was not present, but voted in writing against the deal.
Shas ministers stated that if Arab terrorists are freed, Jews in prison for security-related crimes should also be released.
Prime Minister Ehud Olmert admitted at the cabinet session that releasing the 250 terrorists will not convince Hamas and Hizbullah terrorists to free their IDF hostages. He explained that the move was a “good will” gesture to support Palestinian Authority Chairman and Fatah leader Mahmoud Abbas’s new government.
“I have come to the conclusion that releasing the prisoners will not affect the chances of bringing Gilad Shalit, Eldad Regev and Ehud Goldwasser home,” said Olmert. The families of all three captives are in France to attend a rally calling for the freedom of their loved ones, who were kidnapped in the south and north by terrorists last summer. The families will meet with French President Nicolas Sarkozy and French Foreign Minister Bernard Kouchner on Monday.
Minister Mofaz said the decision was pointless, in that "releasing 250 small-fry would not help Abu Mazen at all." He predicted that in any event, Hamas and Fatah would re-unite within several months.
Prime Minister Ehud Olmert promised Abu Mazen (Mahmoud Abbas) at their summit in Sharm el-Sheikh two weeks ago that he would release the terrorists. The Cabinet did not discuss the specific terrorists who are to be freed.
The General Security Service (Shabak) provided Olmert with a list of terrorists that could be released, but Olmert returned the list. He said it contained mostly terrorists who are to be freed within a short time in any event, and that releasing such terrorists would not help Abu Mazen.
Public Security Minister Avi Dichter agreed, saying that the release of terrorists whose jail terms end within 2-3 years would actually hurt the PA chief. Dichter also noted that “none of the gestures we made since 1994 (releasing terrorists in exchange for Israeli hostages, dead or alive) ever resulted in any PA action against terror.”
"My promise was given after a careful investigation and consultations," Olmert said. "I have no illusions that this very gesture will change the situation in the Middle East. However, we hope to be able to use every means that can strengthen and encourage the moderate elements in the Palestinian Authority, so that we can go in the direction of creating conditions of real dialogue."
This "strengthening the moderates" strategy has governed much of Israeli policy since the signing of the Oslo Accords with Yasser Arafat in 1993. Ever since then, the Fatah terrorist organization has received guns and money that were used to murder hundreds of Israelis, has refused to change its charter calling for Israel's destruction, and has lost control of Gaza to Hamas.
Fatah Charter Article 15 states: "The liberation of Palestine, from an Arab viewpoint, is a national duty and it attempts to repel the Zionist and imperialist aggression against the Arab homeland, and aims at the liquidation of the Zionist presence in Palestine. Absolute responsibility for this falls upon the Arab nation - peoples and governments - with the Arab people of Palestine in the vanguard."
MK Effie Eitam (National Union) called upon Shas and Yisrael Beiteinu to quit the coalition following today's decision. His party colleague MK Aryeh Eldad said that the release of the 250 terrorists "to the scarecrow Abu Mazen is political and ethical bankruptcy on the part of the Prime Minister."
More good will gestures by Olmert. Many of these barbarians now freed tried, but failed to murder Jews. They now have a second opportunity to conduct their dirty deeds. Face saving is what Islam is all about, and those who failed by getting caught must now save face by being successful. They will never be able to face family, or community until they have removed this terrible stain on their Islamic virtue. Allah is not pleased with losers. Here is the really prosperity minded god to whom the Christian prosperity crowd should go. Those giving away supposed magic handkerchiefs claiming they are inspired by the Apostle Paul should know when they claim they have the magic to heal finances that the inspiration really is coming from the same god who breaths only success for the Moslems, and will not tolerate failure. Men like Job, and even King David would have been rejected by Allah. I know neither are bothered by the fact that Islam of today rejects them when in their failed state. It is when we fail that the God of the Bible is at His strongest administering grace and mercy. This God of the Bible is just too great for the worm to stain His glory. Allah on the other hand loses his honor when his followers fail to keep him in power. The honor of Allah must be regained. Those who allow his honor to be soiled through failure are held accountable. The Holy Land is considered by Islam to be their possession. When the world for a brief moment after the holocaust had pity on the Jews, it gave them back a small portion of their own Promised Land. Islam went immediately into face saving mode sending 7 Arab armies to destroy the new formed tiny State of Israel. They failed, and the various Arab leaders of the day paid the price to Allah. The Islamic world does not hold them up in any esteem. Saddam who was basically hung by the Americans will not be lifted high by the Islamic world. He failed! It is no wonder Mohamed never understood the Bible. He had no concept of what the Apostle Paul wrote when he said:
2 Corinthians 12:10
10Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ's sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong.
Islam has no concept of the meek and humble other then to exploit them as suicide bombers whenever possible. This is how they fill their ranks with children. They prefer hate filled fanatics, but will take the exploited just as quickly. Today it is the most violent who rise to the top of Islam. The greatest haters of the Jews and the Christians are the top dogs when Islam is left to itself.
Folks, the victory of Christ is the victory of the meek. Only the humbled sinner comes to Christ for salvation. The masses like Islam are too proud to come. They would lose face if they submitted to such a puritanical Savior as presented in the Bible.
Friend, I pray your heart is not so hard that you can no longer respond to the great love Christ has manifested for you in the Bible. He knows you can't save yourself. Your works, no matter how sacrificial, fall far short of perfection. You don't even come close dear friend. You and I both need an advocate to stand before the absolutely perfect Holy God of the Bible, and plead our case. Not that we are deserving, but that His blood atoned for our sin when He died at Calvary. Friend, the Bible says there is such an advocate, but you must come to Him before He can be your spokesman. Won't you come to this Christ of the Bible?
1 John 2:1
2My little children, these things write I unto you, that ye sin not. And if any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous:

Reports: 'Abbas creating military dictatorship'
Fatah breaking law, cutting off civil liberties with 'emergency government'
Palestinian Authority Chairman and Fatah leader Mahmoud Abbas has come under heavy criticism from Palestinians - including drafters of the PA Basic Law - who say he is forging a "military dictatorship" in the West Bank by granting military courts broad powers to crack down on civilians.
According to The Jerusalem Post, Abbas is also under attack for seeking to weaken Palestinian Legislative Council, whose members were elected in January 2006. The PA Chairman has recently issued a series of decrees suspending parts of the PA Basic Law and granting himself, military and security commanders and judges far-reaching powers.
Abbas's recent actions have been translated by some as an attempt to enhance his power and to foil any attempt by the rival Hamas faction to undermine his Fatah group in the West Bank. According to his critics though, Abbas is violating PA law by establishing a separate "emergency government" from Hamas.
Meanwhile, several critics of Abbas's rule – including legal scholars and public figures - have been abducted by 'unidentified gunmen' in the West Bank, likely as a warning to others contemplating voicing their skepticism of Fatah. The abductions are yet another indication of the lawlessness in the West Bank, which now sits entirely under the control of armed forces loyal to Abbas.
The Post reports that Fatah security forces have detained more than 100 Hamas supporters in Nablus over the past three weeks. All of the prisoners are being held without trial or questioning and are banned from meeting with their lawyers.
Unconfirmed reports that the Hamas detainees are being tortured sparked a wave of protests earlier this week. Citing "security concerns," PA policemen banned reporters and photographers from covering a demonstration yesterday outside a PA prison. The Post reports that a university student suspected of using his mobile phone to take a picture of the event was beaten by officers and taken into custody.
In related news, Palestinian journalists have complained that the PA has banned the Hamas-affiliated Falasteen newspaper from being distributed in the West Bank. The paper is based in Gaza City.
Well, here is the savior of the Road Map. The man upon whom the Olmert and Bush governments are hanging their hats. Remember all those Banana Republics that we inappropriately supported in the past? Here comes another, but this time it is the Holy Land. This time it is the Promised Land that the God of the Bible has appropriated exclusively for the Jews. This time it is at the time God has chosen for which to conduct dispensational change. The LORD Jesus Christ is coming again, and the entire Western world is fixed on establishing the worst culture in existence to be His greeters. There are no people in the world who hate the LORD Jesus Christ (the Jewish/Christian King) more then the barbaric Islamic Arab Palestinians. This lawless rabble will be our welcoming greeting to our LORD and Savior when He comes again if the Bush/Olmert Road Map is to be kept alive. We already know what Abbas does with the scholars and public figures who question his authority. I don't need to imagine what he will do to Christ whom the Bible says is going to return to Judah, Jerusalem, and Mount Zion! Our own Evangelical White House is out in the forefront demanding Abbas be established as the dictator of Judah and Samaria (the West Bank).
11Let mount Zion rejoice, let the daughters of Judah be glad, because of thy judgments.
12Walk about Zion, and go round about her: tell the towers thereof.
13Mark ye well her bulwarks, consider her palaces; that ye may tell it to the generation following.
14For this God is our God for ever and ever: he will be our guide even unto death.
The Bible says both Judah and Mount Zion belong to God forever and ever. God is calling in His right to this sacred turf with the miraculous Third Exodus of our generation. The Jews are back, and this generation is in a rage. We are making the place where the Bible says Jesus is coming again into the most unwelcome place on the planet. The Holocaust denying Jew hating Abbas will be first in line to greet the coming King of the Jews. He will be expecting the, turn the other cheek, Christ whom Abbas would eat up as he does both Bush and Olmert. However, the Christ he will meet is the coming Jewish King LORD of hosts, the omnipotent God, the LORD mighty in battle, the absolutely perfect God of the Bible who can never lose, and is coming with great judgment to Judah and Mount Zion!
7Lift up your heads, O ye gates; and be ye lift up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in.
8Who is this King of glory? The Lord strong and mighty, the Lord mighty in battle.
9Lift up your heads, O ye gates; even lift them up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in.
10Who is this King of glory? The Lord of hosts, he is the King of glory. Selah.
I warn these Palestinian barbarians as I warn you dear friend. Balaam learned the lesson that Bush and Olmert have yet to discover. The world has not yet seen the wrath of the Lamb. A very real part of the full character of the LORD Jesus Christ is coming to the Holy Land, Judah, Jerusalem, and Mount Zion. I pray you have made peace with Christ before He returns. At the soon coming day of the LORD it will be too late.
12For the day of the Lord of hosts shall be upon every one that is proud and lofty, and upon every one that is lifted up; and he shall be brought low:
Oh friend, come to this Christ of the Bible for the forgiveness of your sin before it is too late. He promises redemption to all who come to Him with all their heart, all their soul, and all their might. It is complete surrender withholding nothing, and nothing less is acceptable to the Holy God of the Bible. Friend, are you saved? Has your heart been changed?

Islamic Jihad Takes Credit for Failed Attack
(IsraelNN.com) Islamic Jihad took credit on Thursday night for a failed terrorist attack near Tul Karem that left one terrorist dead. The terrorist was identified as 23-year-old Mohammed Ziad.
Spokesmen for the group explained that Ziad was supposed to shoot soldiers at a nearby checkpoint as revenge for the killing of two Islamic Jihad terrorists near Jenin earlier in the week. Instead, soldiers fired back and Ziad was killed instantly. No soldiers were wounded in the attack.
Islamic Jihad is under the direct orders of Abbas the Islamic dictator our Evangelical White House wants to make the king of Judah. The ruin of Jerusalem, and the bringing down of Judah by this generation of politicians is finding judgment coming from the God of the Bible. The victorious Jews and Americans are now suddenly finding themselves losers when they face Islam. The turn of events is astounding. Israel entered the Second Lebanon War undefeated in every battle with the barbarians. America flowed into Baghdad with an unprecedented one-sided victory over the best Islamic army Allah had at his disposal. Oh how the tide has changed. It is the ruin of Jerusalem, and the bringing down of Judah that has brought about this calamity. It is the Road Map! It is the blasphemous plan to take Judah away from the Jews, and give it to the Islamic barbarians for a forever State.
God placed Judah into Jewish possession in 1967 when the IDF faced the Jordanian Army during the battle for Jerusalem. The Jordanian Jerusalem fortress fell under a costly Jewish assault. All the Islamic Jordanian soldiers then retreated across the Jordan River never to return to Judah again. Today, it is not the Jordanians, but the interloping Islamic Palestinian Arabs who are desiring to make Judah their kingdom. They clearly have more freedom under Israeli rule then they ever had under Jordanian rule, but they hate the Jews anyway even more then they did the Jordanians. The Hashemite Kings of Jordan put down many rebellious attempted bloody overthrows of their rule in Jordan. There is no love lost between the Palestinian Arabs and the Jordanians. The Jordanians do not want Judah back. They are happy to watch the Jews take on the headache that is no longer theirs. They are glad the Jews must now try to get along with these barbarians who are never satisfied. \
This is a sad generation that thinks they can overrule what God has done. God gave Judah and Samaria to the Jews not the barbarians in 1967. The politicians of our day would have the world believe God is really dumb by giving the Promised Land back to the Jews at this time. The politicians want the world to believe they are smarter then the God of the Bible. That they know how to bring about peace in the Holy Land without any consideration for what God has said in the Bible. This is really what is behind the Road Map. When the Islamic Arabs of Gaza voted in Hamas it ended the Road Map because Hamas is so vicious the world has said none are to negotiate with them. The Road Map intended to give the Palestinian Authority formed by Arafat, and now run by Abbas the kingdom of Judah. That was no longer possible after the Palestinian Authority was run out of Gaza by Hamas. To whom can we give the kingdom of Judah is now the driving question of those who continue to resist God by keeping the Road Map alive. Give it to Abbas who has fled to Judah and Samaria is the answer. The same fellow who orders suicide attacks aimed only at the murder of young Jewish soldiers. There is no military objective. It is just barbaric killing that Abbas orders. Folks, here is the next King of Judah if our Evangelical White House, and the liberal Olmert government have their way. We are guilty of standing around with our hands in our pockets while the God of the Bible is setting the stage for the return of His only begotten Son. While our politicians place stubbing stones aimed at humiliating the Bible, and lifting up the Koran. It is the ruin of Jerusalem, and the bringing down of Judah that is making this generation an abomination to the God of the Bible! It is for the attack on His glory that this generation must account.

Abbas consolidates West Bank leadership
The Associated Press
Published: July 13th, 2007 09:03 AM
Moderate Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas will consolidate his rule in the West Bank on Friday night by installing a caretaker government that is expected to rule indefinitely, Palestinian officials said.
The caretaker government will replace an emergency Cabinet formed after Hamas seized control of the Gaza Strip in mid-June and Abbas dissolved his unity government with the Islamic militant group.
Abbas, suddenly in control only of the West Bank, also declared a state of emergency that ends Friday night.
Nabil Amr, a top aide to Abbas, said the new caretaker government will be headed by Prime Minister Salam Fayyad, who heads the emergency Cabinet, and be made up of the same ministers, with several new additions.
Abbas has been ruling by decree since declaring the state of emergency. He ordered a new term of parliament to start this week to approve the emergency government as required by law, but Hamas boycotted the session.
Azzam al-Ahmed, a lawmaker from Abbas' Fatah movement, said that because neither side can muster a majority in parliament: "This government will continue running the country until the crisis ... is solved."
Dozens of Hamas lawmakers have been arrested by Israel in the past year, giving Fatah a slight majority in the 132-seat parliament even though Hamas won Palestinian elections in 2006. Both sides have charged the other with undermining the Palestinians' nascent democracy.
Here is Islamic democracy at it's very best. It will never get any better! It is based on Islamic law not Western law. The god whom they trust is Allah, not the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. The only reason democracy worked so well in America was because we submitted to the right God. The reason why democracy will never work in Islamic countries is because they have rejected the God of the Bible for the usurper false Arabic god Allah. Will we ever learn?
Today, Abbas has bypassed everything that democracy stands for, and established his own cronies by decree most probably forever. Where is the outrage? That liberal Jewish politician Olmert shakes the hand of Abbas. We send Mrs. Rice with millions of dollars, and military arms enough to sink a battleship so "democracy" will continue to flourish in the Holy Land. Folks, we are suckers! All we are doing is incurring the wrath of God. Now don't get me wrong. I'm a conservative through and through, but we have been hoodwinked into believing the Road Map is a good thing. It is a blasphemous plan that would make the Islamic military dictator Abbas the next King of Judah. Islamic democracy is what put Hamas in charge of the Gaza right now. Hamas is far more powerful then Abbas, and will overthrow his rule in Judah at the first democratically held election just as they kicked him out of the Gaza.
The God of the Bible has no intension to set up Abbas as the next King of Judah. Folks, the next King of Judah will be the coming again Jewish King of glory. He is coming in judgment. He is coming to set up a Kingdom of righteousness. The Bible is clear that when He comes He will have the power to force all of mankind to submit to His puritanical rule. Submit, or perish will be the results when He wields the rod of iron. The rod of perfect holiness. No other gods will be permitted when His Kingdom is established. All the manmade religions of the world whether based on the Bible or not will be outlawed. All the religious potentates will be brought low, or perish. Only the Christ of Calvary will be honored!
Friend, the Christ who is coming again will not be put on the cross a second time by rebellious men. This time all will submit, or perish. The nations are but dust in His hands. There is no power that can stop Him from taking the throne of Judah to Himself. What about you? Are you born again? Have you come to this all powerful Christ for the forgiveness of your sin? The same power that will crumble the nations is available for your forgiveness if you are willing. Won't you come to this Biblical Christ, and live?
29But if from thence thou shalt seek the Lord thy God, thou shalt find him, if thou seek him with all thy heart and with all thy soul.

Israel mulling offer of amnesty to 178 wanted Fatah militants
By Haaretz Service and Reuters
Leaders of Fatah's military wing said Saturday that they have reached an agreement with Israel that will pardon 178 of their members on condition they cease terror activities, the Palestinian Ma'an news agency reported.
The list of Al-Aqsa Martyrs' Brigade militants in the said deal include senior group figures such as Zakaria Zubeidi, the head of the Al-Aqsa Martyrs' Brigade, and the Ramallah head of the group, Kemal Renam.
According to the news agency, the deal will also contain the provision that the militants put down their arms, and recognize and remain with Palestinian security forces in the West Bank under Abbas' leadership.
Militants that will cooperate with the PA security forces and won't be involved with terror activities for three months will be allowed to leave the territory under full Palestinian control, known as Area A, and be able to travel abroad.
Abbas aide Saeb Erekat said talks were still underway on the security arrangements, part of which would "end the hunt for these people which the Israelis deem as wanted."
Prime Minister Ehud Olmert's office had no immediate comment on the talks, but a government official familiar with the deliberations said: "This is something we're considering."
The government official said Olmert planned to meet with Abbas on Monday.
Erekat said the leaders would meet in the coming days but he did not provide a specific date.
Last week, the cabinet approved the release of 250 Palestinian prisoners as a gesture to Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas. It was agreed that the prisoners will all be members of Fatah, residents of the West Bank, and they will have no "blood on their hands" - the euphemism used to describe Palestinians imprisoned for participating in the killing of Israelis.
Abbas would have the world believe that the leopard can change his spots. We all know this is a lie, but it is lies that the world wants to hear. The liberal Olmert government is especially ready to believe the lie. These wanted men have all been trained from the cradle to kill Jews. Their consciences have been seared from little up to make no distinctions between soldiers and little civilian children. They will murder any who are guilty of being Jewish. They will murder any who resist their barbaric ways Jew or Arab. The proposal that they will make good policeman for the proposed coming Islamic Kingdom of Judah and Samaria is ludicrous. They are thugs who will always be thugs. They will never repent of their ways. It is sad that Olmert is considering painting a false face on these gangsters for the sake of the Road Map. We are all expected to deny reality so the Road Map can proceed. Folks, the Bible tells the truth when it asks the rhetorical question can these barbarians also do good who are accustomed to doing evil? The only answer is no! They are incapable of ever doing good. They will continue to murder Jews at every opportunity. Olmert depends on the blindness of his constituency in order to sing this new song to the nation of Israel. He knows our Evangelical White House will give him kudos for making this decision that helps promote the Islamic Kingdom of Judah under the rule of Abbas and his personal thugs.
Friend, can you do good who are accustomed to only doing evil? The Bible says you were born in sin! You inherited the sin of Adam because as a representative of the human race he was the best. You would have fallen into sin much quicker then he had you been the one in the garden of Eden. This is why we need a Savior. This is why we need to be born again. Only miraculous power can change the leopards spots, or wash clean a heart of sin. The LORD Jesus Christ proved He had that power. It is your decision as to whether He applies the sin cleansing blood He shed at Calvary upon your heart. The perfect man/God Jesus sacrificed Himself as the only acceptable atonement for sin that an absolutely Holy God could accept as a substitute for those accustomed only to sin. You must come to Him for the forgiveness of your sin. It is a very personal thing. No one but you can come on your behalf, and no one but Christ can forgive. Won't you come to this Christ of the Bible, and live?

Sons of Aaron - The Priestly Tribe - Convene in Jerusalem
by Hana Levi Julian
(IsraelNN.com) A four-day International Conference of Descendants of the biblical figure Aaron, the Priestly Tribe (Kohanim) and the whole Tribe of Levi to which the Kohanim are a part, begins on Sunday, July 15.
“Bring forth Aharon’s sons….Then anoint them, just as you anointed their father, so that they will be Kohanim ("priests") to Me. It will be done so that their anointing will make them an eternal [hereditary] priesthood for all generations. Moses proceeded to do exactly as G-d had commanded him.” (Exodus 40:14, 15)
Throughout Jewish history and to this day, Jews are careful to note which families belong to the tribe of Levi and the priestly family of Aaron. At the special gathering this week in Jerusalem, they will learn more about their roots and discuss the latest research proving their genetic ties.
The International Conference of Kohanim and the Tribe of Levi falls on the first day of the Hebrew month of Av and the beginning of the nine-day period leading up to Tisha B’Av, the second-most solemn fast day in the Jewish calendar.
It is also the date on which Aharon the High Priest, brother of Moses left this world to enter the World to Come.
Recent scientific research and DNA testing has allegedly proven a genetic connection between the descendants of the Tribe of Levi, the biblical priests and their assistants who began with the sons of Aharon.
Project director Professor Karl Skorecki, one of the main researchers in the seminal “Kohen Genetic Signature” study, is scheduled to present the findings Monday, July 16 at 11:30 a.m. in “HaKotel Hall” auditorium, near the Western Wall Plaza.
“This is not only the first family reunion of the Jewish priestly dynasty in nearly 2,000 years,” said conference organizer Rabbi Yaakov Kleiman in a statement sent to the media. “The research and information we will share will play an important role in appreciating and maintaining our unique and precious heritage.” Rabbi Kleiman is the director of The Center for Kohanim in Jerusalem and the author of “DNA & Tradition.”
Molecular geneticists have recently discovered the “Kohen Modal Haplotype,” a Y-chromosome DNA lineage signature shared by a majority of both Ashkenazic and Sephardic Kohanim.
This indicates direct patrilineal descent of present-day Kohanim from an ancient ancestor, genetically dated to have lived approximately 3,000 years ago, corresponding to the time of the Exodus from Egypt.
Kohanim and other “members of the tribe,” the Levi’im (Levites), are being invited to participate in what has been billed as the “first ‘family reunion’ held since the days of the Temple in Jerusalem.”
Four days of seminars, touring, presentations of the latest research and lectures by leading rabbis and scientists on such topics as genetic genealogy, biblical history and contemporary issues in the Jewish legal arena will be offered in English as well as Hebrew.
We are another step closer to setting up the Last Holy Jewish Temple to be built on the Temple Mount. The Temple the Bible says will be the first place the Jewish Messiah (the LORD Jesus Christ) will go when His foot touches down on planet earth at the Mount of Olives. He will cross the Kidron valley, and enter into the Temple where these direct dissentiences of Aaron the first High Priest will minister.
2For 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.
3Then shall the Lord go forth, and fight against those nations, as when he fought in the day of battle.
4And 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.
The perfect God of the Bible is very exact as to how everything must be done especially when it comes to worship in His Holy Temple. Not anyone who feels like it is allowed to minister on His behalf. That honor was reserved thousands of years ago to just one single tribe of the twelve tribes of Israel. It is a modern day miracle that any Biblical Priest has survived intact over the years of persecution that the Jewish people have endured. It is a miracle in itself that even any Jew has survived assimilation throughout these 2000 years of dispersion among the gentiles much more the priestly cast.
I often thought upon the single artifact from the first Temple period is what the archaeologists call an ivory pomegranate bud inscribed "Sacred donation for the priests of (in) the House of [Yahwe]h." I have written a paper disputing the idea that it was arbitrarily designated a pomegranate bud. I argue that designating it an almond bud is far more appropriate. See Pomegranate Bud, or Almond Bud. It seems to me the LORD has good purpose in preserving this single archeological artifact of the First Temple era for our generation. The generation that will witness the re-establishment of the Jewish priesthood.
This of course will eliminate the Roman Catholic priesthood forever. These, murmuring for authority not theirs, Catholic usurpers recently exposed for their pedophile homosexual behavior are ripe for expulsion from the historic record. God is not only restoring Israel in our generation, but He is about to restore the true Biblical priesthood once again. All the Christian denominations that abused the absence of the true Biblical Priesthood by usurping the priestly roll for themselves will be left behind as fodder for the antichrist. The great whore of apostate Christianity with it's false priesthoods will be eaten up by the politicians of the world loyal to the antichrist as he lifts himself up to self-proclaimed deity.
15And he saith unto me, The waters which thou sawest, where the whore sitteth, are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues.
16And the ten horns which thou sawest upon the beast, these shall hate the whore, and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and burn her with fire.
17For God hath put in their hearts to fulfil his will, and to agree, and give their kingdom unto the beast, until the words of God shall be fulfilled.
Folks, we live in exciting times. Bible prophecy is coming to the forefront daily. The return of the LORD Jesus Christ seems imminent. His glory will fill the yet to be built Holy Jewish Temple. We are most likely the generation that will witness this wondrous event. Are you ready? Have you come to Christ for the forgiveness of your sin? He is coming again as the Jewish King of Glory. A Jewish Priesthood will be ready to welcome Him to His Holy House when He comes. Friend, has this Christ come into your life? Are you born again? The time is short. Many are going to find they waited too long, and will be lost forever. I pray dear friend that will not be the case for you.

Shots Fired at Soldiers Near Shechem
(IsraelNN.com) Shots were fired at an IDF position in Tel A-Ras, south of Shechem, Tuesday night.
No one was hurt, nothing was damaged.
This little news item will go unnoticed by most, but it is the first attack on Israeli soldiers by the Abbas regime. The Olmert government, and our own Evangelical White House are pouring millions of dollars into this Abbas fiasco telling us that this is where peace is found in the Holy Land. Never mind that Abbas won his way to fame in the Islamic world by writing a book that denies the Holocaust. Never mind that Abbas fled for his life out of the Gaza Strip when Hamas took control, and has no country anymore to represent. The Bush and Olmert governments closed their ears when Abbas dissolved the Palestinian Authority Government so Hamas would not get all the money earmarked for the PA. It is as if nothing happened? Abbas took up refuge in the West Bank (Judah and Samaria), and both Olmert and Bush continued to support him as if he never left. Abbas was never elected to anything in the West Bank. He just showed up, and began ruling by decree. He is now for all practical purposes the King of Judah. No one is voicing any opposition to this move. The political parties of America in the heat of the coming elections are signally silent. Not one candidate from either party is raising a voice in opposition to this outrage. There is not a single Christian organization standing in opposition to this self proclaiming barbarian King of Judah. The liberal Jewish majority noted for 80% of them not even believing in God are unconcerned. I suppose if they care nothing for God they also care nothing about this new King of Judah. Am I the only one who is responding to this outrage against the LORD Jesus Christ, and the Bible? It is the LORD Jesus Christ who is promised the Kingship of Judah not the murdering Islamic Abbas.
The scepter shall not depart Judah. A lawgiver is promised coming through the stem of Jesse (the linage of King David) who will judge with perfect righteousness. His rule will be from the throne of King David who was born in Bethlehem. A town of Judah. Yes, it is the LORD Jesus Christ also born in Bethlehem who is promised the scepter of Judah, but to whom is our generation giving the scepter not only of Judah but also Samaria? That holocaust denier, and liar extraordinary Abbas. He has declared himself King of Judah with the blessings of both Olmert and Bush. The blessings go much higher to include the EU, UN and Russia who is the author of the Road Map. It is really the whole world which would rather have Abbas as the next King of Judah then the LORD Jesus Christ. It is no wonder it is this generation that will face the wrath of the Lamb when He returns.
Folks, understand it is the Road Map that is behind all this. The Two State solution of which we are told is a peace plan. When Abbas fled Gaza we had no one to give the Palestinian State to. Hamas does not want a Palestinian State for peace. Hamas wants to exterminate all the Jews living in the Holy Land. They will not lose face to a Jew by accepting a gift. What is so ridiculous is that the extermination of the Jews is the plan of Abbas also. Abbas tells the Arabic people this all the time. The only thing Abbas does that is different is when he speaks in English to the West he says he will settle for peace if given his own kingdom. His thinking is he will then have a platform from which he can forever torture the Jews of the Holy Land with suicide bombings and rocket-fire until they are all dead, or leave out of frustration.
Friend, you must come to Christ before the wrath of the Lamb is poured out on this planet. God is not going to wait for you. The die is cast, and judgment is coming. Nothing can stop what has been set in motion during our generation in the Holy Land. The Jews are back. Their hearts will soon be changed, and they will exalt their coming King from the linage of David. It will be too late for you on that day. come to Christ right now. Tomorrow may well be too late.
16And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb:
17For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?

Arab Diplomats Happy with Bush Speech
(IsraelNN.com) Saudi King Abdullah spoke with US President George W. Bush Tuesday and praised his initiative for a summit designed to revive the "peace process" in the Middle East.
Arab League Secretary General Amru Moussa also voiced satisfaction with what they termed the "positive sections" in Bush's speech.
The Palestinian Authority Chairman's spokesman, Nabil Abu Rdeina, said Bush's speech was an important step, and said that the summit needed to create a mechanism for implementing the Road Map to Peace and the Arab Peace Initiative.
by Hana Levi Julian
(IsraelNN.com) The bi-weekly talks between Prime Minister Ehud Olmert and Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas are headed for an impasse, just in time for an upcoming visit by U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and the Quartet’s new Middle East envoy, former British Prime Minister Tony Blair.
Rice and Blair, who was only recently hired by the Quartet (comprised of the U.S., Russia, the European Union and the United Nations), are expected to visit the region toward the end of the month for a new round of shuttle diplomacy between Israel and its Arab neighbors.
PA sources say that Abbas plans to pressure Olmert into discussing permanent borders and other final status issues in two weeks, at their next bi-weekly meeting, scheduled at present to be held in Jericho.
The Prime Minister’s Office, meanwhile, said Tuesday that Israel is not ready to talk about final borders for a PA state in Judea, Samaria and Gaza.
The issue of final status negotiations has shadowed every discussion between Olmert and Abbas, since their bi-weekly meetings began.
“We have been very clear that we are not willing to discuss at this stage the three core issues of borders, refugees and Jerusalem,” said Miri Eisen, spokeswoman for the Prime Minister.
Abbas is being encouraged in his bid to force the issue by U.S. President George W. Bush, who said in his speech on Monday that he intends to convene an international conference for “the establishment of a Palestinian state.” The conference, said Bush, would include Israel, the PA and “certain Arab states.”
Among the conditions that would need to be met before such a state could be established, said Bush, "the PA government must arrest terrorists, dismantle their infrastructure and confiscate illegal weapons as the Roadmap [peace plan] requires. They must work to stop attacks on Israel, and to free the Israeli soldier held by extremists."
Israel must make more security concessions and continue to release tax monies collected on behalf of the PA government which were withheld since Hamas was elected to the leadership in January 2006, he said. "Unauthorized outposts should be removed and settlement expansion [in Judea and Samaria] must be ended."
Bush added that PA residents will have to choose whether to support Hamas, which means choosing the path of terror, or support PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas in his “vision of a peaceful state called Palestine.”
Beware when the enemies of Israel are pleased. Something rotten is on the way. Here is the big push to make the blasphemous Road Map work even though God has exposed it for all it's phoniness. It is just so clear that this attempt to establish an Islamic King over Judah is all wrong. It is illegal from even the most liberal standards, but our Evangelical White House is plowing ahead anyway. The Road Map false peace plan aimed at establishing an Islamic Kingdom in most of the Holy Land is what this is all about. Biblical ignorance for some, and outright Biblical defiance for others is where the politicians of this generation stand. The fact that the Road Map will not die after being inflicted with so many death blows convinces me this is the false peace plan of which the prophet Ezekiel envisioned when he wrote Ezekiel 38 & 39. The results are only going to lead to the guard of Israel being so lowered that Islam sees the opportunity to invade. The old prophet has given Israel more then adequate warning to be prepared. This generation of liberal secular Jews pay no attention to the Bible.
7Be thou prepared, and prepare for thyself, thou, and all thy company that are assembled unto thee, and be thou a guard unto them.
8After many days thou shalt be visited: in the latter years thou shalt come into the land that is brought back from the sword, and is gathered out of many people, against the mountains of Israel, which have been always waste: but it is brought forth out of the nations, and they shall dwell safely all of them.
9Thou shalt ascend and come like a storm, thou shalt be like a cloud to cover the land, thou, and all thy bands, and many people with thee.
They follow Olmert rather then God. They do not look beyond their own creature comforts, and are selling their souls for this phony Road Map peace plan. They are going to make Abbas the next King of Judah. It is not that he is so powerful, but it is because the Jews have become so weak. The world, the flesh, and the devil rule the Jewish State of Israel today, and the God of the Bible is going to put an end to it! The Jewish heart is going to be changed, but it is coming with great tribulation. The Jews are going to find their friend the United States is going to stand by with hands in pocket as will the rest of the Quartet once the invasion starts. The foul end of the Road Map though no one will admit it will be to give Islam the advantage so an invasion can take place. The world, only concerned with their comfort, is willing to sacrifice the Jews for peace with Islam. The sacrifice of the Gaza did not bring peace, and the coming sacrifice of Judah and Samaria is not going to bring peace either. The sacrifice of the Jews would also not bring peace with Islam if it were not for the fact that the Bible says God will intervene. Ezekiel 39 is one of the most horrific judgments on any people in the annals of history. These Islamic barbarians are going to be fodder for the very beasts of which they have become. Ezekiel 39 reveals the real coming peace with Islam when God destroys them for their defiance of His coming King of Judah. They will never submit to a Jewish King, and God is going to destroy them over this single issue! Islam today is willing to destroy the Jews. The Bible says God is going to turn the tables on them.
4Thou 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.
5Thou shalt fall upon the open field: for I have spoken it, saith the Lord God.
17And, 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.
19And ye shall eat fat till ye be full, and drink blood till ye be drunken, of my sacrifice which I have sacrificed for you.
20Thus ye shall be filled at my table with horses and chariots, with mighty men, and with all men of war, saith the Lord God.
21And 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.
Friend, I hope you can recognize the heathen here spoken of are non-other then the Islamic barbarian hordes of today. The time to come to Christ is short. God is going to change the hearts of the Jews, but they are going to suffer terribly for their resistance. Ezekiel 38 & 39 is for the chastening of Israel, but it will also be for the end of Islam. Where the Jewish heart will soften into repentance, the Islamic barbarians will only harden their hearts unto destruction. Friend, I can only pray if you have never come to Christ for salvation that your heart will soften to the Gospel message. Won't you come to Christ, and live?

Terrorist Gets Life Sentence for Killing Tourist
(IsraelNN.com) Islamic Jihad terrorist Ashraf Hanaisha was sentenced to life in prison on Thursday for the murder of 24-year-old Italian tourist Angelo Frammartino in 2006 in Jerusalem’s Old City. Hanaisha admitted to the murder, but said it was accidental. He had only stabbed Frammartino because he mistook him for a Jew, Hanaisha said.
Frammartino came to Israel to set up a summer camp for Arab children. While he was a self-proclaimed pacifist, Frammartino said before his death that he “[did] not seek to avoid legitimate acts of defense” such as attacks on Israelis during the so-called “first Intifada” attacks of the late 1980s and early 1990s.
Oh, what a terrible accident for the courts to consider. The Islamic Jihad terrorist mistook the Italian tourist for a Jew! Be certain if Islamic law were the law of the land as will soon happen when Abbas becomes the next King of Judah that this filthy murderer would be freed immediately. Such an accident is understandable to the Islamic mind. At worst it might generate a small fine. Kind of like getting a parking ticket. At least it was Israeli law based on Western Christian law that prevailed in Jerusalem. Justice did prevail in this particular case. How sad that this Islamic barbarian murdered a fellow who came to help Islamic children because he looked like a Jew. It is like shooting yourself in the foot. That is the way it goes for these animalistic barbarians. They really don't care who they murder. Their consciences have been seared into insensitivity when it comes to mayhem. They can murder themselves just as quickly as they can murder anyone else. It is like a feeding frenzy among the beasts of the jungle. They are barbarians through and through accustom only to doing evil. They must either be killed, or caged for the rest of their lives. They have so sunk into the depths of depravity that they are beyond repentance and rehabilitation. The entire Islamic world has followed the worst of the worst. Hamas now controls the Gaza with full acceptance by Islam. Islamic law has just been decreed for all who enter there, and the people rejoice. The Islamic righteous police squads now intimidate the formerly emerging working class of Arabic woman. The Gaza has retrogressed into the dark ages, and Islam rejoices. Today, we blindly stumble forward promoting the blasphemous Road Map so that Judah and Samaria will be next to follow Islamic law. These cowardly murderers who stab in the back will become the heroes of the people, and encouraged to murder again only this next time making sure it is a Jew. Don't forget that the Intifada is a righteous movement within Islam, and the murder of innocent Jewish civilians is legal and encouraged!
I'm sure the fact that a tourist was murdered is low-keyed by the press. Tourism is the life blood of the Holy Land, and effects both Jew and Islamic Arab. Islam has become so fanatical lately that they care less about the tourism bucks. I noticed more and more Holy sites in the Holy Land are being closed to Western tourists by Islam. Jericho is closed, Bethlehem is take your life in your own hands, and the Dome of the Rock is forbidden. I remember traveling to the Tomb of the Patriarchs in Hebron which is now closed because of Islamic pressure. The Holy Land is changing for the worse as Islamic influence increases. This is the battlefield where the Bible is being replaced with the Koran. Money is not a factor to the Islamic fanatics. They find it easy to fight an opponent not willing to fight back. Our politicians keep telling us Allah, and the God of the Bible are the same. Nothing could be more blasphemous then to make such statements. Islam hates the Jew first, and the Christians run a close second. They know their enemy. We of the West are more interested in playing patty-cake then engaging a murderous foe. Tribute always worked in the past when dealing with the barbarians, and that is the basis of the Road Map today. The problem is Islam does not want tribute. They have their oil, and it serves them fine. What Islam wants is the Holy Land for now. The whole world will come next.
Bible prophecy is clear that Islam will never reach their goal. Islam is doomed to the dung heap of history with all the other barbarians. Islam will go the way of the Nazis of the last generation. A great threat during their hay day, but an absolute failure as recorded in history. God used the Allies of the last generation as instruments of His judgment, but this time with Islam it will be dispensational change that will be the source of judgment. The Church Age is ending. The times of the gentiles is almost over. The coming Jewish Kingdom so often mentioned in the Bible is about to be established. The miraculous Third Exodus became fact during our generation. Friend, are you ready? Have you repented and come to this Christ of the Bible? The coming Jewish King of Glory. The one who was born in Bethlehem, and will sit on the throne of David in the Holy Land, at Jerusalem, and on Mount Zion. Have you repented of your sin, and come to Him for the application of His sin cleansing blood shed at Calvary? Jesus is coming again!
3In those days came John the Baptist, preaching in the wilderness of Judaea,
2And saying, Repent ye: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.

(IsraelNN.com) Once again, Gush Katif expellee families find themselves shifted about in power struggles between the powers-that-be.
Some 50 families thrown out of northern Gush Katif two years ago still have no permanent solution on the horizon - and now they are being told they must leave their temporary homes as well. ...
by Hillel Fendel
(IsraelNN.com) Speaking from the Ketziot prison, where over 250 terrorist prisoners were released this morning, terror victims' activist Meir Indor says many Israelis are disgusted at the idea.
Indor, head of the Almagor Terror Victims Association, was on hand to watch the 255 terrorists being released. "I came with just one other person," he said, "a man whose son was murdered by terrorists several years ago and who came straight from visiting a monument to his son, and yet the authorities here didn't let us come near the reporters. They called this mission 'Fresh Breeze,' and they didn't want to let anything ruin the refreshing atmosphere..."
"But I can tell you," Indor continued, "that even though the politicians and the higher-ups in the army and those who are waiting to be promoted don't object to this release, the fact is that as you go further down in the army and security forces, there is a lot of opposition and disgust. In the Supreme Court, as well, at least one judge - Elyakim Rubenstein [the lone dissenting voice in the 2-1 decision upholding the release] - showed, let's say, dissatisfaction with the release."
"You can also tell by the talkbacks on the websites," Indor said. "Opposition to this deal is very widespread... It's just a terrible deal for Israel. And the authorities tried to hide its full extent. Even today, the commander of the southern region of the Israel Prison Service was quoted as saying that all the prisoners to be released had served 70% of their time - when in fact he's either stupid or a liar. About 3/4 of them have served only between a third and a half of their sentences, and we showed this in the Supreme Court yesterday!"
"We also forced the State's representative to admit that several of them were repeat offenders. Judge Rubenstein asked, 'Don't you think that this is an indication that they should not be freed?'"
Later, Indor was allowed to speak with reporters, and he expressed satisfaction at having been able to explain his case to several news outlets. "I don't wage these battles in order to win," he said, "but merely in order to hopefully ensure that the next time, more terrorists will remain in prison."
Gesture to Abu Mazen
The 255 prisoners were freed today as a gesture by Prime Minister Olmert to Fatah leader and Palestinian Authority chairman Abu Mazen (Mahmoud Abbas), in order to strengthen his waning stature. Olmert promised the release four weeks ago at the Sharm el-Sheikh summit with Abbas, Jordan's King Abdullah and Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak.
"Olmert just threw out the number 250," Indor said, "and then told the security services to deal with finding the right ones. And then when they came up with a list, Olmert behaved like a gangster and said, 'That would be insulting to Abu Mazen. I need bigger fish!' And so they gave him bigger fish - people who placed bombs, who used to be sentenced to 20 years and now are sentenced to only 10, and now they got out after 3-4 years, just because they were lucky and the bomb didn't kill anyone but only damaged the car. And they included attempted murderers, and those who fired shots and missed, etc."
Reminded that the terrorists signed a commitment not to return to terrorism as a condition for being released, Indor said, "We have 196 families whose loved ones were murdered by terrorists who were once in prison. The lesson is simply not learned, and we see that Olmert's decisions are made hastily, not only in last summer's war, but here as well."
Fatah claimed on Friday morning that 30 of the 255 freed prisoners were Hamas members, but both Israel and Hamas denied this.
Scattered Throughout Yesha
The terrorists were taken to the Bituniya checkpoint, north of Jerusalem, from where buses took them to the various area of Judea and Samaria. The release of one terrorist was canceled when he was found to be a Hamas member, and that of another one was delayed when he refused to sign the commitment; he was finally persuaded to do so, and was freed.
On hand to greet the freed prisoner terrorists outside Ramallah was Arab-Israeli Knesset Member Ahmed Tibi, together with Abu Mazen and others.
Among the 255 is Abdel Rahim Mallouh, who was Deputy Secretary General of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP). Mallouh's PFLP terrorists were behind the assassination of Tourism Minister Rehavam Ze'evi, the suicide bombing in a pizzeria in Karnei Shomron, murdering two teenagers, and more. Mallouh, a personal friend of Abbas, was sentenced to seven years in prison, and was scheduled to be released two years from now.
In another Olmert gesture to Abu Mazen, 178 wanted Fatah terrorists have been taken off of Israel's wanted list for the coming three months, unless they are found to be actively engaging in terrorism. If they succeed in acting peacefully for the next three months, their names will then be taken off the wanted list permanently.
All these efforts of giving freedom to criminals are because of the Road Map. They are good will gestures that will never be reciprocated by the Islamic barbarians. It is certain that most of these released prisoners will be back to their murderous deeds. They certainly will not become Sunday School teachers. Now in Islam they are prime Friday School Teachers in the mosques where they can teach the little children to hate the Jews. They are heroes to the Arab Palestinian people, and their heroism comes from their attempts to kill Jews. A glory that I'm sure most will continue to pursue. How sad that they are released just outside Jerusalem. The city of peace. What a gesture this is to the God of the Bible! Yes, Olmert is more concerned to make good gestures to Abbas then he is to stand for righteousness as revealed in the Torah.
The Independent Fundamental Jewish Settlers who pioneered the Gaza into a very successful hydroponics farming community, and were forcibly removed by the Sharon government remain in more distress then the recently released barbarians. They watched on the news how the barbarians stripped, and destroyed all their hard work over the last 30 years in a religious frenzy aimed at anything Jewish. Now, they have been forced into needing governmental help, and the Olmert government has decided to wash their hands of the matter. It just could happen that some of these released prisoners may find formerly Jewish property to trash once the settlers are evicted for the second time.
Justice is a joke in Israel today with the liberal Olmert in control. The barbarian Abbas is given the welcome gesture while the settlers get the boot once again. Biblical justice is what is coming with dispensational change. The contrast of what is happening in Israel is huge. The recent gay parade forced on the city of Jerusalem by the liberal Olmert government most surly fixed the future attitude God will have toward this generation.
19For I know him, that he will command his children and his household after him, and they shall keep the way of the Lord, to do justice and judgment; that the Lord may bring upon Abraham that which he hath spoken of him.
20And the Lord said, Because the cry of Sodom and Gomorrah is great, and because their sin is very grievous;
21I will go down now, and see whether they have done altogether according to the cry of it, which is come unto me; and if not, I will know.
God now knows, and has revealed to the world the injustice going on in Israel today. Judgment is coming to those who refuse to be just. Judgment is coming to the whole world. Injustice such as is happening in Israel today will be outlawed.
Friend, I only wonder what kind of justice is coming for you? I'm thankful that the perfect judge died at Calvary shedding His blood so my sin could be washed away. Justice would demand my eternal condemnation were I to stand before this perfect judge in my own strength. I rest alone in His love, and promise that I am forgiven in His courts. He loves me, and I love Him. I love His righteousness that will restore this old earth into a real fresh breeze of purity where everything will be made right. Friend, you also can have this same love promise applied to you. Just come to this Christ of the Bible, and live.
17Therefore doth my Father love me, because I lay down my life, that I might take it again.
18No man taketh it from me, but I lay it down of myself. I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it again. This commandment have I received of my Father.

Hamas warns Tony Blair ignoring group will damage his credibility
By The Associated Press
Hamas warned Tony Blair on Saturday his credibility as the new international Mideast peace envoy will be damaged if he ignores the militant Islamist organization.
The former British prime minister was expected in Israel and the West Bank early next week in his maiden visit since his appointment as envoy of the Quartet of Middle East peace negotiators - the United States, European Union, United Nations and Russia.
"We warn the new envoy that any attempt to marginalize the Hamas movement will cost him his credibility," said Hamas hard-liner Mahmoud Zahar, a former Palestinian foreign minister.
Blair's mandate is limited to helping Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas build the Palestinian economy and infrastructure.
He also has been instructed to have no dealings with Hamas, which last month forcibly seized control of Gaza from forces of the Fatah movement loyal to Abbas.
The Quartet refuses to deal with Hamas because it refuses to recognize Israel's right to exist, renounce violence or accept agreements by previous Palestinian governments with Israel.
"That policy won't change to accommodate Blair," Zahar said. "We are not ready to sit with anyone calling on us to abandon our national constants and to foreswear the aspirations of the Palestinian people," he said.
After his first meeting with Quartet leaders Thursday, Blair said he will need all the optimism he can muster to "make headway in his new task, but I am determined to try."
Meanwhile, Hamas said it is replacing Gaza's defunct courts with a legal committee comprised of an Islamic law expert, a military court lawyer and the head of the main prison.
Keeping the Road Map alive has become beyond stupidity. The whole effort is now trying to make Hamas lie about their intent so something positive can be written down on paper. This is what was done with the Palestinian Authority under Arafat and Abbas. The intent to exterminate the Jews of the Holy Land never changed, only the written words of peace were used as the violence escalated. The Intifada was birthed at the Oslo Peace Accords where the Palestinian Authority signed the words of peace while at the same time was releasing their barbarians on the Israeli civilian population. The first organized Islamic suicide bombers made their appearance on the world stage as a result. The PA continues to lie about peace on paper while the extermination of the Jews remains their goal. The rival Hamas are too proud to lie. They know Western easy money will flow into their coffers if they would even hint at signing something that could be spun into a peace initiative, but they stand before the Islamic world saying they will take no tribute from the hated Jews and Christians. They will kill them before ever accepting their charity. Hamas receives all the military arms they need from Iran, and they expect charities to feed the people. They are barbarians through and through only interested in recruiting more welfare state barbarians. Hate the Jews is their mantra that even more then ever permeates the Gaza from cradle to grave. That same hate has now been exported to Judah and Samaria by the rival Fatah under that lair Abbas who has declared himself the next King of Judah along with all the rest of the West Bank. Our own Evangelical White House has put their blessings on this liar, and keep the pressure on Olmert to do the same. Abbas is the only Palestinian Islamic Arab who will accept Judah and Samaria as a gift so the Road Map leading to a Two-State barbarian forever kingdom being established in the Holy Land can continue. God has blocked this move again and again, but the secular politicians of our generation will not be moved away from the Road Map. They persist in their folly of the Road Map by bringing the biggest gun available in Tony Blair, and by so doing are bringing this generation into judgment! The Great Tribulation has been prophesied as the just deserts for a generation such as ours. The four horsemen of the apocalypse are mounted, and ready to ride. It is the blasphemous Road Map that will give them direction, and the entire world is on the brink of catastrophe. The leaders of our generation are counted as dross to this great God of the Bible!
Friend, I can only pray you are not on the brink of catastrophe. The LORD Jesus Christ is the only answer for the lost sinner. Calvary was a very personal act suffered by our Savior so that a perfect blood atonement could be made to a Holy God. Our coming to Christ is just as personal an act. Religion can't save! Only the LORD Jesus Christ has that power. He asks us to come to Him, and offers the gift of salvation freely. The Bible says it is by grace. The offer is as available right now as it ever has been, but you must come to accept it. An offer rejected can't be forced on the receiver. Friend, Calvary is a completed act never needing to be repeated. It is your personal responsibility to accept it. Friend, this is where Biblical Christianity starts. It is the forgiveness of sin, and a new heart inserted. Won't you come to this Biblical Christ, and live?

Olmert Reiterates Stance to Give Away Judea and Samaria
by Alex Traiman
(IsraelNN.com) Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert reiterated his belief that Israel "needs to withdraw" from the biblical Jewish provinces of Judea and Samaria.
Speaking at a gathering of farmers in the Jezreel Valley, Olmert maintained that Israel would have to make "tough decisions" with regard to territorial compromise.
According to the Prime Minister, anyone who thinks Israel can continue to hold onto the provinces captured in the defensive Six Day War of 1967 is "living in a dream."
"Everyone understands that the State of Israel can't exist without a guarantee of a Jewish majority," Olmert added.
Although many in Israel believe the question of Jewish majority to be a fundamental problem, recent research suggests otherwise. A major demographic study published in 2005 by Bennett Zimmerman, Roberta Seid and Michael L. Wise revealed that the status of a Jewish majority between the Jordan River and Mediterranean Sea is much more stable than previously reported, with Jews representing at least 60 percent of the total population.
The data further suggests that the numbers of Arabs living in Judea and Samaria (commonly referred to as the West Bank) in particular have been grossly overstated.
Olmert added in his address that any territorial compromise to giveaway all or parts of Judea and Samaria would not occur unilaterally—as was the withdrawal from Gaza 2005—but rather through a negotiated solution with the Palestinian Authority.
The statements came on the eve following Olmert's release of 255 convicted terrorists serving terms in Israeli prisons, back into the general population of Judea and Samaria, a move which drew the criticism of many throughout the country. Olmert did not demand any information on the whereabouts of kidnapped soldier Gilad Shalit in exchange for the release of the terrorists, but rather said that letting the terrorists out of jail was a "goodwill gesture."
According to the Council of Jewish Communities in Judea and Samaria, there are over 260,000 tax paying Jewish residents living in the region. When including the outlying neighborhoods of Jerusalem, the Jewish population of Judea and Samaria reaches close to half a million.
The provinces of Judea and Samaria are also home to many of Judaism's holiest cities including Hevron, Shechem, Beit El, Beit Lechem, and Shiloh. Each of these cities (and others) play key roles in Jewish History as chronicled by the Jewish Bible.
On Saturday, Olmert stated his intention to run for a second term as chairman of the Kadima party, despite numerous calls for his resignation, allegations of criminal activity, and public approval ratings in single digits.
This commitment to the Road Map takes on almost demonic proportions as God continually throws road blocks in the way. The intifada under Arafat was kicked off even before the ink was dry after the signing of the Oslo Accords. The suicide bombers should have ended the Road Map peace plan right then! Today, the violent overthrow by Hamas of the Palestinian Authority in Gaza should be nothing more then the kicking of a dead horse, but this generation of politicians are not beyond thinking they have the power to raise the dead. In desperation they have all stood aside as the ejected Abbas decreed himself King of Judah and Samaria when he fled to the West Bank. There was no democratic elections, he just made the decree with the full backing of both the Olmert government, and our own Evangelical White House. It was the politically correct thing to do even though it breaks all the laws of the land, and makes Islamic democracy a joke. There is no justice in the Holy Land while these present politicians rule.
The Bible tells us there is another who has decreed Himself King of Judah. His declaration is purposely hidden by the news media of today. It is politically incorrect to bring religion into the Holy Land controversy. Remember folks it is the Bible that gives the Holy Land that designation. It is a world wide acknowledgment that the terminology Holy Land is correct, but our politicians are intent on turning the name into Fatahland for now knowing it will ultimately become Hamastan. It is not that Islam has become so powerful as it is that our politicians have become so demonically possessed. They are pawns to the powers of evil in the world today.
Friend, what about you? Are you a pawn to the powers of the world, flesh and devil? What kind of a testimony do you leave with those who know you best? Do the good love you for your righteousness, and hate you for your sin? Do the bad hate you for your righteous stand, and love when you fall into sin? Who is the true King of Judah in your heart? The Bible offers only one road to salvation, and that is through the LORD Jesus Christ. There is no other. Won't you come to the Christ of the Bible, and live?

by Hillel Fendel
(IsraelNN.com) Speaking with Arabic-language Radio Sawa, based in Washington and Dubai, U.S. Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice went further in her demands on Israel than President Bush did in his recent speech on Israel.
Rice, about to depart for the Middle East to prepare an upcoming international meeting of regional leaders, said that President Bush recently stated "very clearly that Israel's future will rest in Israel, in places like Galilee and in the Negev - and that the occupation of the West Bank will have to end, and a Palestinian state will need to be established."
In fact, however, in his recent speech, President Bush did not phrase this as a demand upon Israel, but rather cited Prime Minister Olmert as having "made clear that Israel's future lies in developing areas like the Negev and Galilee - not in continuing occupation of the West Bank. This is a reality that Prime Minister Sharon recognized, as well. So unauthorized outposts should be removed and settlement expansion ended."
Rice Sets New Standard
Pres. Bush also stopped short of saying Israel must withdraw from all of Judea and Samaria. Bush said rather that future Israel-PA negotiations must "lead to a territorial settlement, with mutually agreed borders reflecting previous lines and current realities, and mutually agreed adjustments."
By stating so clearly that the "the occupation of the West Bank will have to end," Rice has set a new standard for United States officials of her stature in opposition to Israel's presence in Judea and Samaria.
Secretary Rice did not deal with the question of what to do with the 240,000 Jews living in the non-annexed areas of Judea and Samaria (nor the roughly equal amount living in the outlying neighborhoods of Jerusalem beyond Israel's pre-1967 borders). Israel has not yet been able to solve the problems of the fewer than 10,000 Jews it evicted from Gaza two years ago; those Jews are still living in transient camps of temporary pre-fab houses, with no long-term housing or employment solutions in sight.
No Invitations Yet
Secretary Rice also told Radio Sawa that "no invitations have gone out yet" for the planned meeting. "I want to talk to our allies in the region and our friends in the region about how they see and what they would see to be a useful international meeting," she said. "[It] will be, as the President said, an opportunity to review our progress. It will be an opportunity to make commitments to support the Israelis and Palestinians in their discussions, in their future negotiations... The United States doesn't want Made-in-America solutions. We need the entire population of states that are devoted to the two-state solution to work with us. And so these will be very important consultations."
Bush: Hamas - Bad, Fatah - Great
President Bush, in his speech ten days ago, compared Hamas and Fatah in stark terms, painting a picture of contrasts in which the Arabs under PA jurisdiction can, seemingly, choose either evil (Hamas) or good (Fatah).
"This is a moment of clarity for all Palestinians," Bush said," and now comes a moment of choice... There is the vision of Hamas, which the world saw in Gaza - with murderers in black masks, and summary executions, and men thrown to their death from rooftops. By following this path, the Palestinian people would guarantee chaos, and suffering, and the endless perpetuation of grievance. They would surrender their future to Hamas's foreign sponsors in Syria and Iran. And they would crush the possibility of a Palestinian state."
"There's another option," Bush continued, "and that's a hopeful option. It is the vision of [Fatah] President Abbas and Prime Minister Fayyad; it's the vision of their government; it's the vision of a peaceful state called Palestine as a homeland for the Palestinian people. To realize this vision, these leaders are striving to build the institutions of a modern democracy. They're working to strengthen the Palestinian security services, so they can confront the terrorists and protect the innocent... And they're ensuring that Palestinian society operates under the rule of law. By following this path, Palestinians can reclaim their dignity and their future -- and establish a state of their own."
Rampant Fatah Terrorism and Hatred
In fact, however, Fatah's Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigades have actually taken responsibility for every suicide bombing in Israel the past three years. Just this week, WorldNetDaily's Aaron Klein reports, Fatah terrorists organized yet another terrorist cell in Samaria for attacks against Israel. In addition, the 178 wanted Fatah terrorists whom Israel agreed to pardon last week if they would renounce terrorism described their hand-in of weapons as a "big joke."
Interestingly, Bush noted that Hamas men threw Fatah members out of apartment buildings during their recent battles, but neglected to mention that Fatah did the same to Hamas members.
As Caroline Glick wrote in the Jerusalem Post on Dec. 26, 2006, "If Abbas were interested in peace, he would not be demanding that Israel [do the following]: release terrorists from prison; stop arresting wanted terrorists; make it easier for terrorists to operate in Judea and Samaria by suspending IDF counterterror operations and taking down roadblocks; bring more terrorists into the areas from Jordan; arm terrorists through Egypt; and give him money to pay the salaries of terrorists."
Former Israeli Cabinet Minister Natan Sharansky succintly described the cultural milieu in the Fatah-controlled Palestinian Authority as one that “promotes genocide” against Jews: “As in Nazi Germany, there is an entire culture of hatred in Palestinian Arab society today, from textbooks to crossword puzzles, from day camps to TV music videos. Calling for the murder of Jews, as Jews, is the end result.”
The "Big Joke" is on us who support this blasphemous Evangelical White House. The "Bigger Joke" will be when Hillary becomes the next, and probably last President of the United States. The end of the Church Age could be that close. All the politicians of this generation demand a heathen State be forever established in the Holy Land. They all spit in the eye of the Great God of the Bible. They support the removal of the Bible for the Koran, Western law for Islamic law, and the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob for the false god Allah of Abraham, Ishmael, and Esau. This Road Map has turned into the greatest blasphemous plan introduced to the Holy Land since God miraculously brought about this Third Exodus. God blessed the fledgling Nation of Israel in 1967 by giving them the sovereignty over Jerusalem and the Temple Mount. The door was opened for the building of the Last Holy Jewish Temple on the Temple Mount. The Temple that would be standing when the LORD Jesus Christ returns. It was the politicians who entered into the picture at that time puffed up with visions of peace keepers to the accolades of this filthy generation. Now they have sing handedly turned God's blessing into a curse. A curse that will effect the entire planet. A curse that will bring this generation to Armageddon.
Folks, if you want to see what God is doing in the world today look toward Jerusalem, and the Temple Mount. The more God puts stumbling blocks in front of the politicians of our day the harder their hearts become. The "Big Joke" is the coronation of Abbas as the King of Judah and Samaria by these politicians. This coronation is an absolute rejection of the LORD Jesus Christ who is the intended rightful King of Judah coming on the heels of this miraculous Third Exodus. These worldly politicians have blasphemed His authority won at Calvary. They put in Abbas as their candidate for peace despite the reality of his record. They are blind! They are willingly blind! They are going to drag this filthy generation into judgment, and the masses to their doom! The cries of torment coming from the eternity of hell will be no joke on the day of judgment.
This generation does not want Christ to return on their watch. The Palestinians are sworn to the death never to let a Jewish King rule over them. The Jews do not even believe what the Bible says about their coming Messiah. They, however, are the only group with a future promise. God says He will change their hearts. He will reveal their redeemer, and they will morn for Him whom they had pierced.
10And I will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit of grace and of supplications: and they shall look upon me whom they have pierced, and they shall mourn for him, as one mourneth for his only son, and shall be in bitterness for him, as one that is in bitterness for his firstborn.
11In that day shall there be a great mourning in Jerusalem, as the mourning of Hadadrimmon in the valley of Megiddon.
Yes, it will be front Armageddon, the Valley of Megiddon, that the Jews will mourn for their returning Messiah. The end of the times of the gentiles will have arrived. The Church Age will have ended 7 years earlier at the translation of the saints into heaven. Now, all that will be left is to separate the sheep from the goats. The LORD Jesus Christ will sit on His throne in His Temple on the Temple Mount, and the Jewish Kingdom Age will begin. The Jews will have to have gone through great tribulation in order to be prepared for redemption. They will enter in mass having submitted to their returning King of Glory. The great masses of gentiles will be cast into hell as the goats of that great judgment.
Friend, that redemption offered so freely to the Jews on that day is offered to you right now. The God of the Bible. The God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob sent the Messiah to die at Calvary so your sins could be atoned. The offer of forgiveness is available to you right now. All you need do to have your heart changed is to come to Christ, but you must come with all your heart, all your soul, and all your might. When you have submitted thusly to this Christ of the Bible, He promises to redeem you fully and forever.
12But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:

by Nissan Ratzlav-Katz
(IsraelNN.com) Shortly after it was made public on Thursday that Israel approved the transfer of thousands of assault weapons from Jordan to the Palestinian Authority, Likud Knesset Member and faction chief Gideon Saar warned that the guns will be used against Israelis. A Popular Resistance Committees (PRC) terrorist said that, in any case, the guns will end up in different hands than those for which they are intended.
The transfer of 3,000 guns - some reports said 1,000 - from Jordan to PA forces in Jericho was apparently approved by the Israeli government this week. The guns are earmarked for PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas's elite Force 17 militia. It will be the largest such weapons transfer in several years.
In reaction to the news of the intent to further equip PA forces, MK Saar said, "This is an irresponsible move by [Prime Minister Ehud] Olmert and [Defense Minister Ehud] Barak. It is based on totally ignoring our past experience and lessons, which show that the guns will be used against Israeli citizens and IDF soldiers. Fatah has no lack of weapons.
PRC spokesman Muhammad Abdul El ("Abu Abir") seemed to confirm MK Saar's warnings: "The PA hasn't learned from Gaza, as we warned in the past, that the weapons transferred to Gaza would eventually end up in the hands of the Palestinian resistance. So we promise that these weapons will end up in the hands of the Palestinian resistance."
Thousands of weapons given to Abbas's Fatah militias ended up in Hamas hands during the Hamas takeover of Gaza.
The PRC is a local Gaza confederation of armed factions from several PA terrorist groups, operating in unison under a Hamas umbrella. The PRC was one of three terrorist groups that kidnapped IDF Cpl. Gilad Shalit in June 2006. Shalit's exact whereabouts and condition are currently unknown.
Imagine arming every prisoner released from jail. The politician who would propose such legislation would be disbarred in an instant, but not in Israel with this liberal Olmert government. The Israeli arsenals are full of weapons given to the Palestinian Authority that were seized from terrorists. Despite the reality here is Olmert releasing some 3000 more weapons that will be passed out to any Palestinian Arab willing to fight against the Jews. We know what Abbas did in Gaza. How dumb it is to think he will not do the same in Judah and Samaria. It is the politics that drive this madness. The Road Map has turned the politicians of this generation into the proverbial dumb dogs of the scriptures. These are the shepherds God warned about that cannot understand. They have willingly blinded themselves to reality. They sleep while Abbas prepares for war. The blasphemous Road Map has blinded them with visions of grandeur as they are led to believe through their own wit they can bring peace to the Holy Land. They see self glorification by generations to come as they leave a legacy of peace. It is all a false illusion easily put in their minds by Satan himself. The reality of the Road Map is it does not work. Islam is using the Road Map to better position themselves for the final eradication of every Jew from the Holy Land. I believe the Russians, and Europeans already understand this. They hate the Jews anyway, and from their way of thinking the eradication of the Jews would bring peace, an Islamic peace, to the Holy Land. It is our naive Evangelical White House, and the liberal Olmert government that seem to be the only ones still in the dark. The sad part of all this is should the Democrats take control of the White House the naivety would disappear, and the same behind the scenes Islamic peace that the Russians and Europeans long for would be joined by the United States. There is no love for the Jews in this last generation before the Great Tribulation.
Yes, this is the generation of dumb dogs. They close their eyes to reality, but with purpose. No matter what God does to wake them to reality they just continue on the same path. They arm the bad guys so they can do their worst, and tell the world they are peacemakers. They use the Road Map to justify such stupidity, and this generation of Evangelicals and Jews go right along without a whimper. Shame on the Evangelical pulpits of the land. The greatest challenge to the Bible has come in the form of the Road Map, and they are silent. It is no wonder the rapture is imminent. The watchmen have all failed in their charge from God!
6For thus hath the Lord said unto me, Go, set a watchman, let him declare what he seeth.
Friend, even though the watchmen of this generation have become dumb dogs it does not lessen our responsibility to Christ. The very first responsibility is to come to Christ for salvation. The next responsibility is to be a watchman. We need to break from this lukewarm Evangelicalism, and return to our fundamental roots. We need the fire of the old time fundamentalists who would not be silent. The second coming of Christ should not be obscured by being nether cold or hot toward the blasphemous Road Map. The Biblical answer is to separate from the watchman who will not sound the trumpet. What is happening in the Holy Land is the most relevant issue of our generation, and the Road Map stands as a beacon of opposition to the Biblical plan for the return of Christ. God says He will require at their own hand the watchman of this generation. Our responsibility is to separate from these dumb dogs, and to separate ourselves unto Christ!
31Thus shall ye separate the children of Israel from their uncleanness; that they die not in their uncleanness, when they defile my tabernacle that is among them.
2Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, When either man or woman shall separate themselves to vow a vow of a Nazarite, to separate themselves unto the Lord:
14Thus shalt thou separate the Levites from among the children of Israel: and the Levites shall be mine.
2 Corinthians 6:17-18
17Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you,
18And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.

Four Wounded in Mosque Fight
(IsraelNN.com) According to Bethlehem-based Maan news, four Fatah members were wounded in a fight outside a mosque in Rafiah on Friday. One of the wounded men had been shot, while another was severely beaten.
10 members of Fatah, including one senior terrorist, were arrested after the fight. It is unclear what caused the fight.
Failed Kidnapping Attempt in Jerusalem
by Ezra HaLevi
(IsraelNN.com) Arab terrorists reportedly tried to kidnap a Jerusalem teenager Sunday. The boy escaped and police are searching for the terrorists.
The 14-year-old Jerusalemite was walking in the Hareidi-religious neighborhood of Sanhedria, where he lives, when three Arab men pulled up in a car and forced him inside.
He told police that the men tried to leave Jerusalem, but he jumped out while the car was stopped at a traffic light. The boy then called his mother, who notified the police.
Police told Army Radio that the boy seemed to be telling the truth and that a dragnet was being conducted in hopes of locating the would-be kidnappers.
The violence will only grow as Abbas firms up his Islamic Fatah rule over Judah and Samaria. Oh poor little town of Bethlehem. What do the Islamic barbarians have in store for you? You birthed both King David, and the LORD Jesus Christ. What will these barbarians filled with hate do once they have consolidated their rule? Guns and money pour into this fledgling Kingdom of the newly declared Islamic King of Judah. I can only imagine how they will be used for continued violence against everything Christian and Jewish.
The intimidation of Jews living in Jerusalem is sure to increase. Abbas will demand at least 3/4's of the old city leaving only the Jewish quarter which will certainly undergo continual murders and kidnapping of Jewish children. The Islamic barbarians know the best way to run the Jews out of Jerusalem is to target their children. The liberal Olmert government looks upon the conservative orthodox Jews of the old city as political enemies. There will be little governmental help coming to these Jews as the Islamic King of Judah takes control of Jerusalem.
The prize for this Islamic King will be full sovereignty over the Temple Mount. The liberal Olmert government cares nothing for this religious site which only causes them trouble with the Arabs. A little trouble from the conservative Jews as their interests are sacrificed for the Road Map is considered politically acceptable. After the removal of over 250,000 Independent Fundamental Jewish Settlers from Judah and Samaria takes place so the Islamic King can rule, the turnover of the Temple Mount will be but a little thing.
The new Islamic King of Judah is on the move. He knows he heads up the only Islamic Arab group willing to accept land from the Christians and Jews. All the rest are intent on eradicating all the Jews from the Holy Land right now. Abbas has the same intent, but his method is to do it one step at a time. First he will establish a forever Islamic Kingdom in Judah and Samaria by lying about peaceful intent. At the same time he will be increasing violence throughout his Kingdom aimed at forever torturing the Jews. Abbas knows any Islamic government that makes an honest peace with the Jews will be forsaken by the rest of the Islamic world. His intent is to use the politicians to his own advantage, and become the Islamic hero as he outwits the Jews with the rest of the West. The Road Map is the instrument that will accomplish the task.
This Islamic King of Judah is building his Kingdom on deception. He does not speak the truth when he offers peace to the Jews. Many a Christian today claims to be born again, but they are deceived. They have not come to Christ in humility with all their heart, soul, and might. They did not tell the truth when they prayed for salvation. They never had the intent to fully submit to the LORD Jesus Christ, and His puritanical standards. They came with ulterior motives. Some wanted wealth, some wanted mystical powers, and some wanted God to get them out of the trouble they brought upon themselves. They are all quick to follow those who present the false christs of this generation. Friend do not be deceived! Only the honest seeker finds Biblical salvation.

Olmert Government Destroys Synagogue Next to Joseph's Tomb
by Hana Levi Julian
(IsraelNN.com) The Civil Lands Administration destroyed a one-year-old synagogue built on Mount Gerizim near the Samarian city of Shechem on Monday afternoon. The structure was built not far from one of the holiest sites in the Jewish world.
Government officials maintained that the building was erected without a permit, and was not a synagogue.
Dozens of Breslov Chassidim and other rabbis and students worshipped there daily, learning Torah between the services. The rabbinical students vowed not to give up the site without opposition. “If the synagogue is destroyed, it will be re-built,” vowed one student before the house of worship was razed to the ground.
The structure was built by the students in order to study as close as possible to the burial place in Shechem of the biblical Joseph, son of the Jewish matriarch Rachel and Jewish patriarch Jacob, following its capture and destruction by Palestinian Authority Arab hordes in October 2000. There have been many clandestine pilgrimages by Jews – and some not so clandestine – to the tomb since then.
Echoes of the past reverberate in the hills around the grave of the biblical Joseph, whose bones were brought to rest in Samaria by the Children of Israel when they escaped from Egyptian slavery thousands of years ago.
"The bones of Joseph which the Children of Israel brought up from Egypt were buried in Shechem in the portion of the field that had been purchased by Jacob." (Joshua 24.32)
The Tomb of Joseph, whose sons headed two of the twelve tribes of Israel, was to remain accessible to Jews under the terms of the Oslo Accords signed by Israel with the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO), which represented the PA.
The area around it, including the city of Shechem, was handed over to the PA, then an administrative body whose leaders had promised to protect the site.
But Jewish access to the tomb was blasted away by PLO terrorists in October 2000 a scant few days after the start of the second intifada, which many refer to as the Oslo War.
Israel Border Police officers spent days fending off terrorist attempts to capture and destroy the tomb. Within a week, the government of then-Prime Minister Ehud Barak, currently Israel’s Defense Minister, caved in and ordered IDF troops to abandon the site.
Another Joseph was also abandoned that day in 2000 - a Druze Border Policeman named Madhat Yusuf (Joseph, in Arabic) who was left to bleed to death as soldiers waited for the order to rescue him. It took five precious hours for then IDF Chief of Staff Shaul Mofaz to negotiate with the PLO for his evacuation to safety, but by then it was too late. The government later told journalists the talks were necessary in order to avoid the risk of killing PA civilians.
The PA promise to preserve Joseph’s Tomb and allow Jewish access was violated within two hours after Yusuf’s body was carried away. A flood of PA Arabs entered the compound and razed the synagogue to the ground, burning furniture and holy books as the PA policemen who had vowed to protect the site stood idly by.
Two days later, the dome of the tomb itself was painted “evil eye green” as some people refer to the color, which in Arabic tradition wards off the evil eye. Bulldozers cleared away the remnants of the orgy of violence that had taken place there, transforming the holy Jewish monument into a Muslim religious site.
If you thought Islamic democracy based on Allah was bad, take a good look at Israeli democracy based on the liberal interpretation of the Olmert government. If you are a conservative religious Jew, there is no governmental tolerance for you, or your practices. Olmert and his cronies spit on anything with a Biblical foundation. The Bible and Biblical religion are just archaic residue of a bygone era to them. They are secularists who do not believe in God. Biblical sites have no significant meaning for them. Their attitude is if the Arabs want it then give it to them. We really don't care. Our intellectualism raises us above such petty squabbles. It is an easy attitude to have when you don't think you will have to answer to the God whom Joseph put his faith. This entire generation is guilty of the same lackadaisical attitude to the Great God of the Bible. These holy sites are of extreme importance to God especially as He has returned the Jews to their Promised Land during this miraculous Third Exodus of our generation. These desecrations aimed right in the face of the God of the Bible are not going to go unanswered. The days of longsuffering ended with the return of the Jews.
The timing of this desecration is directly linked to the establishment of the Islamic Abbas as the King of Judah and Samaria. Olmert wants to show his good will, and support of this blasphemer who fled the Gaza. He entered the West Bank as a refugee, and just assumed power with no elections. Our own Evangelical White House almost fell over itself releasing millions of dollars to his fledgling Kingdom. The Olmert government just the other day authorized Jordan to release 3000 guns so Abbas can enforce his rule through violence. The move is to ensure that should democratic elections take place in the West Bank Abbas will be able to stifle a Hamas victory as happened in Gaza through force.
Democracy, fair play, justice all have to be violated in order to make Abbas the King of Judah. I'm convinced should an election take place in the West Bank tomorrow that Hamas would win! The Islamic Arabs know Abbas only represents all the corruption associated with Arafat at the end. All the bad that soured the Arabs under the dictatorship of Arafat is all that Abbas represents. His power is in the cronyism he brought with him from Gaza, the millions of American dollars he uses for bribes, and the guns he now can use to force his will upon the people of Judah and Samaria. Over 250,000 Independent Fundamental Jewish Settlers are not intimidated. They will not join into his corruption. They will not be bribed. They will fight back putting their lives on the line rather then step aside to this self proclaimed potentate. Olmert intends to remove them as he did the synagogue near Joseph's Tomb. Nothing is going to be allowed to stop the Road Map. However, God is more then either our Evangelical White House, or the Olmert secular government can contend.
Friend, the God of Joseph is about to turn this generation upside-down. Not only are the heathen going to know His mighty power, but the Bible says the Jews of this generation will also know! What about you? Do you know the LORD Jesus Christ as your personal Savior? Better to know Him as He offers His sin cleansing blood through love to you then when His wrath is kindled but a little. Won't you come to Christ today, and live!
12Kiss 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.
