Mt. of Olives Cemetery Renovated, Gets Security Cameras
(IsraelNN.com) The Ministry of Religious Affairs has recently finished renovating the Mount of Olives cemetery in Jerusalem. Over 2,000 graves were repaired and security cameras were set up to prevent grave desecration by Arab vandals.
The project was undertaken at the request of MK Eliezer Moses of UTJ.
Soon, and very soon, we are going to see the King is a tune running through my mind since the Jackson funeral flooded the air waves. I noticed there were no wardrobe malfunctions as happened at the Superbowl Game where America's children were forced to see the lowering of the moral standard by another Jackson. I noticed the sexual gyrations, and sexually explicit hand movements of the Michael Jackson's career were kept to a minimum in respect for the holy place where the Hollywood crowd is certain he now resides. I'm thankful such so called entertainment will be outlawed when the real King establishes His Kingdom. Places like Hollywood, and Las Vegas will be crushed never to rise again. Mankind will come under the righteous iron rod rule of the LORD of hosts who will set the holy, puritanical, Biblical standard which will rule the soon coming thousand year reign of Christ. The children of the world will lead the beasts of the field by the nose, and put their hands in the hole of the asp with no fear of wild, beastly reaction. The God of the Bible will have subdued animalistic character of the beasts. My guide dog Zeke had to pass obedience school before he was ready to be a guide dog. One snap, or growl in anger meant failure. The standard is high for this highest calling of any dog, and it is for my benefit. A wild Zeke would drag me to my death, but the obedient Zeke can function as my eyes keeping me safe as we traverse through a sighted society. The lion will eat straw in the coming Kingdom much like the Panda Bear of today. However, the nature of the wild beast will not be allowed. The Bible says the lion will lie down with the lamb, and a child will lead them.
Friend, the Jackson's of this generation will never be allowed to lead the children of the world into their perverted concept of holiness and purity. The Hollywood concept of love will never be allowed to ruin the coming Kingdom. True Biblical love will never be mocked again by the perverts of future generations.
Yes friend, soon, and very soon, we are going to see the King. He is coming in power and great glory. The Bible says every eye will see Him when He comes again. The cameras meant to record this Biblical event are now in place running 24/7 in anticipation of the return of the LORD Jesus Christ. I pray you can understand the Biblical wonderment of these cameras now functioning on the Mount of Olives. I pray you can understand the glory these cameras are going to record when the LORD Jesus Christ touches down on the Mount of Olives.

Jews Fast, Mourn on 17th Day of Tammuz
by Hillel Fendel
The "Three Weeks" of gradually-increasing mourning over the destruction of the Holy Temples and Israel's exile begins Thursday with the fast of the 17th of the Hebrew month of Tammuz. This is the day on which Nebuchadnezzar and his Babylonian forces breached the walls of Jerusalem, after many months of siege, on their way to destroying the Holy Temple.
The Three Weeks end on the 9th of Av - Tisha B'Av - the date on which both the First and Second Temples were destroyed, roughly 2,500 and 2,000 years ago, respectively.
The 17th of Tammuz marks other calamities in Jewish history as well. It is the date on which Moses, having descended from Mount Sinai and seeing the people sinning with the Golden Calf, broke the first set of Ten Commandments. In addition, the priests of the First Temple era were forced on this day - a year before the Temple's destruction - to stop offering the daily sacrifice due to the shortage of sheep.
The Talmud also teaches that on this date some decades earlier, the evil King Menasheh had an idol placed in the Temple's Holy Sanctuary. Later, during Second Temple times, a Roman general placed an idol in the same place and publicly burned the Torah.
The fast ends at 8:10 PM, but other mourning customs, such as no weddings or haircuts, continue until the morning after Tisha B'Av.
Like other fast days, the morning prayers include special selichot prayers, mourning our losses and asking for forgiveness. Excerpts from the selichot of the 17th of Tammuz:
"We rebelled against Him Who dwells in heaven, therefore we were scattered in all directions... We acted rebelliously before Thee with slandering tongues, therefore our tongues were made to learn to utter lamentation... The tempest-tossed afflicted people were utterly broken up and dispersed; the dry land became a boat wrecked for lack of a captain; she received [punishment] for her sins with principal and double interest, with mourning and moaning... Their adversaries assailed them on that day and... drove the nation like a chased gazelle, and there was none that sought to protect it... Turn to us, O Thou that dwellest on high, gather our dispersed from the four corners of the earth. Say to Zion, Arise! And we shall arise. Convert the 17th of Tammuz into a day of salvation and comfort." (translation by Rev. Abraham Isaac Jacob Rosenfeld)
Folks, what great news I have from the Bible. The next Holy Jewish Temple that will be built on the Temple Mount will never be destroyed! It is described in Ezekiel 40 - 48. Sadly, it will be desecrated by the Antichrist for 3 1/2 years just before the return of the Lord Jesus Christ, but in those very last days the faithful Jews who will have fled into the wilderness after the death of the Two Witnesses of Revelations 11 will return when the Antichrist abandons Jerusalem as the King of the North advances into the Holy Land in preparation for Armageddon. These Jews will have but days to cleanse the Temple in preparation for the return of the Lord Jesus Christ. This Temple will endure even the final assault of Satan who when released from prison at the end of the millennial reign of Christ will cause one final rebellion just before the Great White Throne Judgment when sin ends forever according to the Bible.
I have just given you a lot of Biblical food for thought. All the events I have listed will take place according to Biblical prophecy. The timing I must admit is speculation, but the chronology I presented makes sense to me. A Third Holy Jewish Temple is part of the plan of God for the ages. The future of the Bible stands, or falls on this single issue of a Jewish Temple! The Koran says no! The Koran says the Biblical God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob is a lie! A Zionist plot is what the Islamic religious leaders call the Bible. Islam has reacted to this miraculous Third Exodus of the Jews back to their Promised Land as part of that Zionist plot, and not the fulfillment of Biblical prophecy. Islam is the religion of the Arabic seed of Abraham, Ishmael, and Esau as presented in the Koran. Allah is not the the Biblical Jewish God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. Allah is the fictitious god of the barbarians as invented by Mohammed who lops off hands and heads of all offenders. Mohammed read both Old and New Testaments. He rejected Christ out of hand, and turned to Satanic influence in his desire to replace Christ with himself claiming he, and his barbaric, Arabic, ways is of higher authority from God the Father.
Folks, I pray you understand what the God of the Bible is doing in the Holy Land in this our generation. It is true the Jews of today are still in rebellion against God. That is quickly going to change! I believe after the rapture of all born again believers out of the Great Apostate Christian religion of today takes place that then God will reach down to the Jews of Israel to lay the foundation for the coming \Kingdom. The result of the testimony of the Two Witnesses of Revelation 11, and 144,000 faithful followers whom I believe will build Ezekiel's Temple in expectation of the Second Coming of Christ will bring about the change of heart the Bible predicts as coming to the Jews of Israel. Not every Jew will be saved, but a great revival into redemption provided through the blood of Christ is predicted.
19And I will give them one heart, and I will put a new spirit within you; and I will take the stony heart out of their flesh, and will give them an heart of flesh:
20That they may walk in my statutes, and keep mine ordinances, and do them: and they shall be my people, and I will be their God.
21But as for them whose heart walketh after the heart of their detestable things and their abominations, I will recompense their way upon their own heads, saith the Lord God.
Friend, the same choice many of the Jews are predicted to take is available to you this very moment. Friend, you can come to this same Biblical Christ for redemption. You can be saved through the blood of Christ shed for you at Calvary. Only Christ is the perfect atonement for sin. His resurrection proved His sacrifice at Calvary was acceptable by the only perfectly Holy God of the Bible. Mohamed lays a molding in the grave to whom all Moslems face every day when they pray their blasphemies to one of the greatest blasphemers of all time. The issue in the Holy Land today is who has the authority of the Father. Is it the resurrected living Christ, or the rotting dead Mohammed? Friend, the choice is clear, but the masses prefer the detestable abominations of this world. The God of the Bible is not the god of the masses. He is the God of the individual who understands he can't save himself, and needs a Savior. It is to these individuals that Christ offers the gift of salvation through grace. Those who will come individually are those who reach out for this offer of grace. Friend, leave the crowd, and come to this Christ of the Bible who loves you. He died in your stead bearing your sins on His body shedding His precious blood for the cleansing of your sin. Only He has the power to save. Only you can receive His free gift of grace. Only you can come asking Him to forgive. No one else can come for you. It is you who must come! It is you who must be driven to repentance. Dear friend, do not let this moment pass. Come to this Christ of the Bible, and be saved!

Quarry linked to Temple Mount found in Jerusalem
The Israel Antiquities Authority announced on Monday (July 6) the discovery of a quarry used to produce many of the stones which were used to build the outer retaining walls of the Temple Mount complex during King Herod’s building of the Second Temple over 2,000 years ago. The quarry, discovered during preparations for a building site on Shmuel Hanevi street in central Jerusalem, covers one dunam (approx. a quarter acre) and contain stones up to 2 meters high, indicating that they were used for large building projects, of which King Herod famously built several, including the Second Temple. "We know from historical sources that in order to build the Temple and other projects which Herod constructed, such as his palace, hundreds of thousands of various size stones were required - most of them weighing between two and five tons each," said Dr. Ofer Sion. "The dimensions of the stones that were produced in the quarry that was revealed are suitable for the Temple walls." Historical records show that Herod employed over 10,000 people in the process of quarrying and transporting the stones, which was one of the most technologically complicated engineering feats of the time.
Islam is furious that this latest archaeological find testifies to the truth that the Jews built not one, but two Holy Jewish Temples on the Temple Mount. The Islamic religious leaders teach the gullible that the only structures ever built on their Temple Mount were Islamic Mosques. Whenever the historic record indicates Allah has been seconded it is the record that must change. Only that which brings praise to Allah is allowed. Islam can't stand in the light of the truth. Islam is a lie, and can only stand in the darkness of lies. Any Moslem who might speak out on all the truths that contradict the Koran do so on pain of death. The Koran is an unholy book teaching the gullible that the Islamic Paradise is a sexually perverted place where women are used as sex kittens, and who's only function is to please the filthy Islamic warrior martyr for all eternity. It is the book of the barbarian where hands and heads are lopped off any who dare question Mohammed's invented Allah.
I have some good news. This quarry was not shut down because they ran out of stone. It was shut down because the Herodian building era ended. The good news is that there is plenty of stone left to build even greater structures then Herod was capable. There is enough stone to build Ezekiel's Holy Jewish Temple in all it's glorious magnificent splendor. The Second Holy Jewish Temple needed not one, but two holy men to bring it into fruition. It had to be an absolutely Holy Building, and the worship offered within had to also be absolutely Holy. Anything less then perfection would never be acceptable to the Holy God of the Bible. The same is true today. We will need holy men capable of divine revelation as was needed to build all the Holy Jewish Temples of the past. The Second Temple needed Zerubbabel the governor to build it, and Joshua the High Priest to establish holy acceptable worship within. Holy Sacrifice for the atonement of sin was central to the Biblical worship practiced in the Temple. It all had to be perfect. It all had to be without spot or blemish. Otherwise it was not acceptable to the Holy God of the Bible. Worship and sacrifice became nothing more then worthless ritual if not done according to the Biblical standard. Only holy men under divine revelation could ever build, and worship to the puritanical standards as revealed in the Book of Leviticus. Such were Zerubbabel and Joshua.
1In the second year of Darius the king, in the sixth month, in the first day of the month, came the word of the Lord by Haggai the prophet unto Zerubbabel the son of Shealtiel, governor of Judah, and to Joshua the son of Josedech, the high priest, saying,
2Thus speaketh the Lord of hosts, saying, This people say, The time is not come, the time that the Lord's house should be built.
3Then came the word of the Lord by Haggai the prophet, saying,
4Is it time for you, O ye, to dwell in your cieled houses, and this house lie waste?
5Now therefore thus saith the Lord of hosts; Consider your ways.
It is clear to me another prophet like Haggai is needed to stir the Jews of today into action. To cause them to consider their ways! The time is right for God to raise up another two olive trees as were Zerubbabel and Joshua when Zechariah refereed to them in his book as the two anointed ones, the two olive trees, the two olive branches, who would build and establish holy worship in the second Holy Jewish Temple.
9The hands of Zerubbabel have laid the foundation of this house; his hands shall also finish it; and thou shalt know that the Lord of hosts hath sent me unto you.
10For who hath despised the day of small things? for they shall rejoice, and shall see the plummet in the hand of Zerubbabel with those seven; they are the eyes of the Lord, which run to and fro through the whole earth.
11Then answered I, and said unto him, What are these two olive trees upon the right side of the candlestick and upon the left side thereof?
12And I answered again, and said unto him, What be these two olive branches which through the two golden pipes empty the golden oil out of themselves?
13And he answered me and said, Knowest thou not what these be? And I said, No, my lord.
14Then said he, These are the two anointed ones, that stand by the Lord of the whole earth.
The Bible reveals who the next Zerubbabel and Joshua will be for those who will open their eyes. \they are found in the book of Revelations chapter 11. Here is the only other refference to two olive trees.
11And there was given me a reed like unto a rod: and the angel stood, saying, Rise, and measure the temple of God, and the altar, and them that worship therein.
2But the court which is without the temple leave out, and measure it not; for it is given unto the Gentiles: and the holy city shall they tread under foot forty and two months.
3And I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days, clothed in sackcloth.
4These are the two olive trees, and the two candlesticks standing before the God of the earth.
Folks, it is no mystery what the testimony of these two Old Testament type prophets will be. They will build, and establish the worship in the next Holy Jewish Temple to be placed on the Temple Mount. They will be the first fruits of the next dispensation. They will lay the foundation for the Kingdom Age.They will have 144,000 anointed masons who will undoubtedly reopen the quarry of today's news event. They will meet the holy qualifications of the Holy God of the Bible. Notice the difference in their moral standards as compared to that of Mohammed, and his sexually perverted Islamic Paradise.

EU: 'Accept PA State as Full Member of UN'
by Hana Levi Julian
(IsraelNN.com) European Union foreign policy chief Javier Solana is taking steps to move the establishment of a Palestinian Authority state through the United Nations, whether Israel agrees to it or not.
Solana told a British audience in London on Saturday that Israel and the PA should be given a deadline by which to conclude negotiations for a two-state solution. If a final status agreement is not reached by that time, according to the Reuters news agency, Solana recommended that one be imposed by the United Nations instead.
“After a fixed deadline, a UN Security Council resolution should proclaim the adoption of the two-state solution,” he said. “It would accept the Palestinian state as a full member of the UN, and set a calendar for implementation. It would mandate the resolution of other remaining territorial disputes and legitimize the end of claims.”
He added, “If the parties are not able to stick to it [referring to the UN-imposed timetable -ed.], then a solution backed by the international community should be put on the table.”
Solana added that the UN-imposed “two-state solution” should include resolution of issues such as control over Israel’s capital, the city of Jerusalem, as well as border definitions, security arrangements and the “right of return” by millions of foreign descendants of Arab refugees who abandoned their homes during the 1948 war.
PA negotiator Saeb Erekat reiterated Sunday that no discussions between the Palestinian Authority and Israel would begin without a complete freeze of all Jewish construction in Judea Samaria. Erekat made the statement in response to a call by Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu to resume peace talks with Israel.
“There can be no compromises on construction,” Erekat said. “If Israel is allowed to build 1,000 or 2,000 housing units it will lead the PA and the Arab nations to believe the U.S. government cannot convince the Israeli government to stop building.”
PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas has said repeatedly he is unwilling to come to the table unless Israel stops all building in the regions, including construction within the city limits of existing cities and towns.
Notice how Jewish interests are of no account to the European Union. All that counts is what Abbas feels are the important issues. This is a one-sided approach to the Two-State Solution which favors only Islam. These are the gentile nations gathering together to force their will on the Jews. It is a harbinger of things to come. The Bible says the Gentile Nations are going to gather together against Jerusalem.
9And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will seek to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem.
The attitude is here right now for the nations to impose their will on the Jews. It is only a matter of time before these prophecies come to pass. It is not fairness, but hate that motivates these leaders of the nations to rise up against Jerusalem. It is all part of this Obama era where Islam is being raised up at the expense of the Jews. The Koran is being lifted up while the Bible is being cast down. This is a most evil generation.
The rights of the Islamic Arabs to return is nothing more then the planting of a fifth column right in the heart of Israel. Arab bombers would be unrestrained as they attacked every Jewish population center. Islamic barbaric aggression is at new heights, and the Jews have been abandoned to the torturous attacks of these barbarians. The Gentile Nations know the score, and are bold in their intimidation of the Jews. Christian America used to stand up for the Jews against such blatant attacks by the Europeans, but all that is changing with the Obama era.
The hate against the Jews is only surpassed by the hate for a Jewish King having the power to enforce His will upon this Gentile ruled planet. The Christ of mainstream Christianity is not Jewish, but a man-made gentilized version of Christ. The coming Kingdom is presented by this generation of Christians as just another version of the Church Age. A continuation of what God says ends forever at the rapture. It is the gentile Church, not the Jews, who are the grafted in branch. Our time in the limelight as the Gentile Church is ending. I know I stand on Biblical ground when I say that it is a Jewish Kingdom coming with Christ when He returns. The times of the gentiles is ending.
Friend, no matter Jew, or gentile. The time for you to be saved is right now. The LORD Jesus Christ was, is, and always will be the Jewish Messiah. He came the first time as the suffering servant to make the perfect atonement for sin at Calvary. He is coming again not as the babe of Bethlehem, but this time as the mighty LORD of hosts! He is coming to claim His inheritance paid for with His own precious blood. He is coming for the Jews who will submit to His authority. All, either Jew or gentile, that refuse to submit will perish! This coming King of the Jews will not be denied. Friend, He loves you, and knows you can't save yourself from sin. He took your place at Calvary so the penalty of death would not be measured against you. It is His righteousness that provides the forgiveness of sin. Friend, it is all by grace, but grace must be received. This is your responsibility. Dear friend, you must come to Him. He will drive you to repentance because of His absolute Holiness. He will break your heart of stone, and replace it with a heart of fleashly compassion. You will never be the same after you come to this Christ of the Bible. Friend, won't you come right now. Won't you come to this Jewish Messiah, and live.

Fatah Official: “Our Goal is Not Peace, but Rather Palestine”
by Hillel Fendel
(IsraelNN.com)"Our goal has never been peace,” says a Fatah official in a PA TV panel. “Peace is a means; the goal is Palestine" – meaning the conquest of Israel.
Palestinian Media Watch (PMW), directed by Itamar Marcus, reports on a panel discussion on a television program of the Fatah organization broadcast this past week. Headed by Mahmoud Abbas, Fatah is considered the more moderate wing of the Palestinian Authority, compared with Hamas.
The panel discussion shows that in actuality, Fatah is no less firm than Hamas in seeking the goal of Israel’s destruction. Kifah Radaydeh, the deputy head of the Jerusalem chapter of Fatah, says openly that the PA will resume violence and terror against Israel when Fatah is "capable," and "according to what seems right."
"It has been said that we are negotiating for peace,” she further stated, “but our goal has never been peace. Peace is a means; the goal is Palestine."
Radaydeh is considered a “promising and rising young force” in Fatah, according to a PMW source, “and this report will likely give her extra prominence. But we have to publicize her words in order that the truth about the PA and Fatah be known.”
PMW was established in 1996 to “gain an understanding of Palestinian society through the monitoring of the Palestinian Arabic language media and schoolbooks,” its website states. The organization “analyzes Palestinian Authority culture and society from numerous perspectives, including studies on summer camps, poetry, schoolbooks, religious ideology, crossword puzzles, and more. [It plays] the critical role of documenting the contradictions between the image the Palestinians present to the world in English and the messages to their own people in Arabic.”
Marcus and Nan Jacques Zilberdik, writing this latest PMW report, emphasize that when Fatah refers to "Palestine," as when Radaydeh says the “goal is Palestine,” the reference is to all of Israel. As proof, it is noted that the Fatah flag still shows the map of Israel under rifles.
In addition, Fatah MP Najat Abu Bakr said in a PA TV interview last year that Fatah's goal remains the destruction of Israel, but that their political plan is to focus on returning to the 1967 borders. "It doesn't mean that we don't want the 1948 borders,” Abu Bakr said, referring to all of Israel,” but rather that “our current political program is to say that we want the 1967 borders."
Just four months ago, senior PA official Mohammed Dahlan stressed that Fatah adamantly refuses to recognize Israel, and that even the Palestinian Authority’s recognition is only for the sake of receiving foreign aid: "…the Fatah movement does not recognize Israel, even today... [such recognition is] required of the government but not of the Fatah, so that this government will be able to offer the necessary assistance, to carry out the necessary reconstruction, to offer assistance to the sick, to bring relief to needy families... This can be dealt with [only] by a government that has relations with the international community, one that is acceptable to the international community, in order that we can work together and benefit from the international community."
Here is the Islamic State of Obama's Two-State Solution. This attitude has not been hidden from Obama. He knows exactly what he is trying to force on the Jews. An Islamic government built upon lies! Obama is the chief of liars when he uses the excuse that this Two-State Solution is a peace plan. It is anything but a peace plan. It is the attempt to stop the God of the Bible from bringing this miraculous Third Exodus to it's natural conclusion which is the next Holy Jewish Temple built on the Temple Mount. Obama wants not only to stop the Exodus, but to turn back the prophetic clock to pre-1967 when all of Jerusalem including the Temple Mount became Jewish. Let me be clear that should Obama be successful he will not stop at the 1967 Jewish boarder, but will go all the way bnack to 1948 when Israel became a Nation. The goal of Obama is idenical to the goal of Fatah and Hamas. It is to make all of Palestine a Jew free zone. It is to take the Holy Land away from the Biblical Jews, and give it to the Koran loving Islamic barbarians.
I saw through the Road Map of the phony Evangelical Bush who was an Ecumenicalist in sheep's clothing, and I see right through this Two-State Solution of the Obama wolf disguised as an Evangelical. I see right through these secular world politicians who use the word peace in order to spit in the eye of the God of the Bible. They all think themselves something when in reality they are only another piece of fodder for the lake of fire where they will spend all eternity in torment under the wrath of God. The Great God of the Bible sees right through all their phoniness. He sees the truth of what is in their heart. All who reject Christ reject the Biblical plan God has for Christ as part of the future for the Holy Land. They mark their rejection by their support for these blasphemous plans to usurp Christ with Mohammed for convenience sake if nothing else.
Friend, I implore you to see the truth of what the politicians are doing with the Holy Land. They are rejecting God who has determined now is the time for the return of Christ. Should the politicians of this generation have their way Christ would not return for another 2,000 years. They would have the Jews forget about the promises made to them in the Bible about a future Kingdom with a future King in the linage and likeness of David. They would rather the Islamic future for the Holy Land be realized. These politicians have quit on the Bible, and are ready to compromise with the barbarians giving them all they ask for. The leaders of the Gentile Nations of this generation are ripe for judgment.
I pray you will not be part of their folly. Friend, you need to come to the Christ of the Bible for the forgiveness of your sin. You need to be saved through the blood of Christ. It is Christ who willingly sacrificed Himself at Calvary so that the perfect atonment for sin could be offered. Friend, that offer must be received! It is you who must come to accept this gift of grace. God will not force anyone to be saved against their will. It is your decision! Friend, will you come to Christ, and live?

PA Acts Like Boss in Jerusalem
by Hillel Fendel
(IsraelNN.com) The Palestinian Authority is resuming public moves to demonstrate sovereignty in Jerusalem. First it was an official reception for the Egyptian ambassador, and now it is the official opening of a new business center.
Arab nations’ ambassadors to the PA, foreign consuls, and Palestinian Authority businessmen took part in the festive opening of the Al-Hambra (Red Palace) compound on Salah A-Din St. – the same street that houses a major branch of Israel’s Justice Ministry offices – on Tuesday night.
Just a few days ago, the Palestinian Authority conducted an official reception for Dr. Othman Yasser, the new Egyptian ambassador to the PA, in an eastern Jerusalem hotel. Taking part were senior PA figures, Fatah leaders, and even Israeli-Arabs.
The Oslo Accords forbid the Palestinian Authority from maintaining an official presence or conducting official activities in Jerusalem.
Correspondent Haggai Huberman reports that the new Arab business center will include restaurants, luxury stores, and even convention halls. The PA investment company Bedico spent millions of dollars to refurbish and rebuild the site, which has stood empty since 1989, after housing a movie theater for over 35 years.
Bedico chairman Munib Masri sounded almost like a Zionist in explaining his company’s motives: “It is important for me to invest in Jerusalem in order to support the Arab residents, create jobs and provide services for tourists and pilgrims who arrive in the holy city.”
At the reception in his honor, Dr. Yasser said, “The continued attempts to Judaize Jerusalem will harm the very existence of the Palestinian nation.”
Despite the ban on official PA activities in Jerusalem, the PA ran a Jerusalem headquarters in a building known as Orient House until 2001; the building was ultimately closed down at the height of the PA-initiated terrorist war in which some 1,300 Israelis were murdered. Upon closing down the building, Israel found thousands of documents proving that the offices were used to finance terrorism. Orders to this effect signed by Yasser Arafat himself were found as well.
In February 2008, an aide to PA prime minister Salam Fayyad confirmed that Orient House had been partially reopened, with security and intelligence offices operating in the eastern Jerusalem building on a limited basis.
Everything the Palestinian Authority does is linked to the destruction of the Jews. How can Obama claim he has a peace plan that would give the PA all of Judah and Samaria, the heartland of Israel, for the establishment of this kind of planed destruction of the Jews, and call it a peace plan? I am not revealing news items unknown to Obama. On the contrary, he knows more then I about the intent of the Palestinian Authority. The reason he continues dealing exclusively with the PA is because they are the only Arabs who are willing to accept land from the infidels even if it is under false pretenses. The rest of Islam will not stoop to such levels. The rest of Islam intend to win the Holy Land in holy battle where the Jews are exterminated as part of the Islamic Final Solution. The Palestinian Arabs are looked down upon by Islam as the slimy untrustable part of the family. In Egypt, I noticed other Arabs won't eat near Palestinian Arabs once their origin is recognized. Who knows, but just yesterday they may have been shaking hands with a Jew. Islam does not trust the Palestinian Arabs, but their hate for the Jews overwhelms the repugnance they feel. I'm sure should Islam get the upper hand in the Holy Land the Palestinian Arabs would find themselves at the bottom of the social register. They are the Arabs who lived side by side with the Jews. Something absolutely repugnant to Islam!
The PA right now is puffed up with pride. They know they have Obama in their pocket. They think he believes their lies, and they can lead him, and the secular Jewish government around by the nose. They flaunt their superiority before the world saying we are the sovereign of Jerusalem. Their flaunting is tenuous at most, and they are careful not to cross the line angering the real sovereigns of Jerusalem. The PA fear the Jews, and do their prancing in softened steps.
Unlike the Islamic sexually perverted Paradise, the heaven of the Bible is not a place for the proud. Christian have been praying for 2,000 years that the coming Kingdom where the will of God will be done here on earth as it is in heaven will come soon.
4Blessed is that man that maketh the Lord his trust, and respecteth not the proud, nor such as turn aside to lies.
It is a shame that Obama does not read the Bible. He might gain some spiritual wisdom where wisdom really counts. Obama is traveling the wrong road in the Holy Land, and it can only lead to his demise. The only history that counts in eternity will be the history connected to the Bible, and the return of the LORD Jesus Christ. The Obama record is only one of wasted efforts on frivolous plans that were doomed before they were even started. Obama has left Christ out of all his planning. He wants a Holy Land peace that excludes Christ. It would only be Obama, and the world politicians getting the glory. This is a doomed plan from the get go.
Friend, I offer you a plan from the Bible. A plan based on the truth that you are a lost sinner in need of a Savior. The Biblical offer is not to the proud, but to the meek. The proud can't understand grace. They have no need of mercy. Only the downtrodden can understand the Christ of the Bible who came to offer the perfect atonement for sin. There could never be forgiveness of sin without the atonement Christ provided at Calvary. That forgiveness is being offered to you this very moment. Christ forces none to be saved, but the humble sinner coming for forgiveness is promised eternal life by this Christ of the Bible. Salvation is based on truth not lies. Come to this Christ of the Bible, and see the miracle He can do in your heart. He loves the lost sinner seeking to repent, and promises eternal life to all who will come.
Friday July 17, 2009Ayalon on Al-Hurra TV: ‘PA Hasn’t Moved an Inch’
Reported: 13:37 PM - Jul/16/09
(IsraelNN.com) Deputy Foreign Minister Danny Ayalon spoke about Middle East peace and said that the Palestinian Authority hasn’t budged while Israel has made great strides during a Wednesday interview on the Arabic language satellite television network Al-Hurra. “Two states are an important matter for all. I think we have come a long way; Israel today has come a long way – we are ready to give up land, territories and sovereignty, and also to recognize a Palestinian State,” said Ayalon.
“This was not the case 16 years ago. But today even the Israeli right wing, the Likud government, is talking about it. So we have come a long way. However if we compare that with the Palestinian positions, we see they have not changed since 1993, they have not moved an inch.”
The reason why the Palestinian Authority, and Islam in general has not responded to all the Israeli compromises for peace is because they do not want peace. Islam and the PA only want the extermination of the Jews. We saw this with the Nazis of the last generation, and now we see it again from the Moslems. The same uncompromising Satanic influence is at work again in our generation. Again the world politicians are willing to sell the Jews down the river. The majority of liberal Israeli secular Jews coming mostly from America and Europe have buckled under the pressure forced upon Israel by these politicians. The Jewish politicians are afraid to trust God, and go it alone. They would rather trust Clinton and Obama then the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. They would rather entangle themselves among the Gentile Nations accepting Diaspora once again rather then stand independently as God intends of them. These are a weak generation of Jews who have been blessed with the Nation of Israel. They are not worthy of all God has done for them in the Holy Land. The only ones even less worthy then the Jews of this generation are the Christians of main stream Christianity who have chosen even a more cowardly approach to the return of the LORD Jesus Christ so clearly coming within the next few years.
It is the wickedness of main stream Christianity that has chummed up with the Apostate Church that is causing God to turn away from today's Christianity, and turn again toward the Jews. It is the silence of Charizmatic false doctrine. It is the silence when Billy Graham invited the Roman Catholics to participate in his crusades. It is the silance of Evangelical leaders when the Ecumenicalists Bush and Obama claimed they were born again. It is the silence of the Southern Baptist Denomination when Carter and Clinton claimed they were born again. God is about to spew this kind of Christianity out of His mouth. He is turning back to the Jews. Not because they are so righteous, but because Christianity has become so wicked.
Folks, understand the coming dispensational change is not because the Jews are so righteous, but rather because main stream Christianity has become so wicked. We have an Evangelical President who rejects the Christ of the Bible. He is out to stop this miraculous Third Exodus of our generation with his Two-State Solution. He would never admit for political reasons the truth that his peace plan excludes Christ, but this is the truth. He is not a born again Christian, but main stream Christianity does not challenge his doctrine at all. I have pointed out many times that both Bush and Obama are Ecumenicalists in Evangelical clothing. They are enemies against each other, but more importantly they are both enemies against the God of the Bible. They believe and teach that the god of the Koran, and the God of the Bible are the same. It is the old blasphemous Ecumenical wagon wheel approach where all religions are just spokes of the wheel all leading to the same hub. It is Christian apostasy in it's worst form. It is paganism in truth, and rejected by the God of the Bible.
The LORD Jesus Christ is a jealous God. He will not share His glory with a lie. All religions are the lies of men. The Bible is not a religion. It has been turned into many false religions by men, but the truth of the Bible remains. The Bible is not religion. The Bible is Christ the Savior. The coming again Jewish Messiah. The righteous branch of whom Jeremiah spoke.
5Behold, the days come, saith the Lord, that I will raise unto David a righteous Branch, and a King shall reign and prosper, and shall execute judgment and justice in the earth.
Friend, it is this Biblical Christ of whom I speak. He came to sacrifice Himself as the perfect atonement for sin. He shed His blood at Calvary for your sins and mine. Our only hope of sinless perfection comes through His righteousness. We are the wicked ones who have failed His purity in every way. We are unworthy to be called Christians, but He loves us anyway. He knew us from the beginning, and knew we needed a Savior. He took our sins upon His body so we could be saved. Friend, He forces salvation on no one. We must come to Him if we want our sin's forgiven. The Bible is clear salvation is by grace. The thing about the free gift of grace is that it must be received. Friend, are you ready to receive Christ? All you need do is come to Him in prayer. He will do the rest. The requirement is coming with all your heart, soul and might. There is no holding back. There is no phoniness when it comes to being born again. Friend, do not put off this opportunity to come to Christ. This is the moment when you must decide. Come to this Christ of the Bible, and live. Be certain you are not trusting in the many false christs of religion. It is only the Christ of the Bible who has the power to save.
Sunday July 19, 2009Kassam Attack in Western Negev
by Maayana Miskin
(IsraelNN.com) Gaza terrorists fired a short-range “Kassam” rocket on southern Israel on Thursday night. The rocket hit a field in the Sdot Negev region, causing no injuries.
The attack was the first of its kind in several weeks. Rocket attacks from Gaza have been relatively infrequent since the conclusion of Operation Cast Lead earlier this year.
On Wednesday, President Shimon Peres met with residents of a Gaza-area kibbutz (cooperative community). Residents told the president that this summer, for the first time in years, children are able to play outdoors, and are not restricted to taking part in activities held in or near bomb shelters.
Also Wednesday, the new anti-ballistic defense system Iron Dome passed a series of live tests. The system is designed to protect civilians from short-range rocket attacks such as those favored by Gaza terrorists.
The system succeeded in demolishing a test rocket in mid-air.
The Iron Dome system is expected to intercept and destroy rockets fired from 3-72 kilometers (2-45) miles away. The system will be used against short and medium-range rockets and mortar shells. Previous rocket defense systems have focused on taking own larger, long-range rockets.
This reduction in rocket attacks, and the implementation of Iron Dome may well be reason for the predicted dropping of the guard that Ezekiel predicts before the Islamic Invasion of Israel takes place. Ezekiel sees the Jews at rest. He watches them develop a feeling of safety right before Islam attacks.
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.
11And thou shalt say, I will go up to the land of unwalled villages; I will go to them that are at rest, that dwell safely, all of them dwelling without walls, and having neither bars nor gates,
14Therefore, son of man, prophesy and say unto Gog, Thus saith the Lord God; In that day when my people of Israel dwelleth safely, shalt thou not know it?
The unprepared state of Israel is noted by the Gog (Russians), and they see the opportunity for attack. I don't think Russia as a nation is part of the attacking force. Ezekiel is clear it is the "chief prince," or the Prince of Rosh (Russia) who invades. I have wrote often this seems to be the Islamic part of the old USSR. It seems to me the Russians provide the logistics, and much of the military armaments. But, leave Islam be the sole invading force greatly encouraged by the Russians. It is the Jews false trust in external things that brings about this calamity. God brought about this miraculous Third Exodus so the Jews would trust Him not the iron dome. The secular politicians have seduced the Jews into a false feeling of security. The Islamic invasion of Israel will change the hearts of the Jews. I can't think of an American President more apt to do nothing when the Arabs invade other then Barack Obama. He is the right man at the right time who will sell the Jews down the river. I'm sure he will say trust in your Iron Domes not America when the millions upon millions of Islamic warriors cross the boarder into Israel.
It is the plan of God in the Bible to draw in Islam for destruction. It is the plan of God to change the hearts of the Jews by His action once Islam crosses the boarder. It is the plan of God to remove all Islamic influence over the Middle East thus opening the door for the Jews to build Ezekiel's Temple. It is the plan of God to begin the end of gentile reign over planet earth by destroying Islam first. Islam will be the example to the rest of the Gentile Nations that the God of the Jews is not to be trifled. A lesson that will go unheeded leading to Armageddon. It is the plan of God to replace gentile rule with a Jewish Kingdom ruled over by the only perfect Jewish King the LORD Jesus Christ.
Friend, are you ready? Do you know this Christ of the Bible as your own Savior? Are you born again? The Bible says you must decide if you want your sins forgiven. Salvation is by grace, but grace must be received! Christ is the perfect atonement for sin. He shed His own perfect blood at Calvary so you could be redeemed. The price has been paid for sin, but it is your responsibility to come to Christ in order to receive the gift of grace He offers to the lost sinner. Friend, won't you come to Him, and live. Friend, you can know this Christ of the Bible, but you must first come to Him as the Jews of today are prophesied to come, and know Him.
Monday July 20, 2009Netanyahu: Jerusalem is Ours, Not Up for Debate
by Maayana Miskin
(IsraelNN.com) Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu issued a sharp response Sunday to United States pressure to stop Jews from building in parts of Jerusalem claimed by the Palestinian Authority. Israel's sovereignty in Jerusalem is “not up for debate,” Netanyahu said, and Jews are permitted to build in any part of the capital city, as are Arabs.
Netanyahu implied that the U.S. request was racist, saying before the weekly Cabinet meeting, “Imagine what would happen if Jews were forbidden to live or to buy apartments in certain parts of London, New York, Paris or Rome. There would be an international outcry."
"All the more, we cannot to a decree like this regarding Jerusalem,” he said.
Over the weekend, the U.S. State Department summoned Israeli envoy Michael Oren and demanded that Israel halt construction of Jewish homes in the Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood, near the ancient grave of Shimon HaTzaddik (Simon the Just). The property on which the homes are to be built has been owned by Jewish activist Dr. Irving Moskowitz for more than 20 years.Oren told U.S. officials that Israel would not agree to stop building in the area.
Israel annexed Sheikh Jarrah and other Jerusalem neighborhoods following the Six Day War, in which the city was reunified after 19 years of Jordanian rule in the eastern half of the city. While Israel has maintained sovereignty in the capital city for more than 40 years, the Palestinian Authority continues to demand all areas controlled by Jordan in the 1950s.
The United States, along with most of the world, has refused to recognize Israeli sovereignty in Jerusalem in deference to the PA. The American embassy is located in Tel Aviv, not Jerusalem, and American citizens born in Jerusalem may not list “Israel” as their country of birth on their American documents.
Israeli Muslim Children told Jerusalem Occupied, Raise Millions for Al Aksa
While Israeli leaders proclaim Jerusalem to be the unified capital of Israel, Israeli Muslim leaders teach their children that Jerusalem is rightfully Arab and Muslim. On Saturday, the Islamic Movement bussed thousands of Israeli Arab Muslim children to the Al Aksa Mosque on the Temple Mount, where they heard speeches referring to the Temple Mount and Jerusalem as areas “occupied” by Israel.
"We must remove the occupying forces from the mosque, and from all of Jerusalem,” said Sheikh Khamel Khatib, a senior Islamic Movement leader.
The children brought money which they had gathered throughout the year on behalf of the Islamic Movement. Donations came to roughly 3 million shekels, which Islamic Movement leaders said would be used for the Al Aksa Mosque and Islamic Movement institutions.
It is Jerusalem stupid sounds very crass, but it is time for this generation to wake up! It is Jerusalem where the God of the Bible has chosen to make His stand. It is not Rome, or New York city. It is Jerusalem! It is Jerusalem where the Islamic barbarians have chosen to defy the Almighty God of the Bible by replacing the Bible with the blasphemous Koran. It is Jerusalem where every Moslem is taught from little up to take it from the Jews. Islam has told the world that the Islamic barbarians will never rest until they have Jerusalem. Terrorism is the way of the barbarian, and Jerusalem is the place where the barbarian will be either victorious or subdued. The Bible says the heathen Moslems of this generation are going to find their Waterloo when they invade Israel in their attempt to take Jerusalem from the Jews. Later during the Great Tribulation it will be the Gentile Nations meeting their Waterloo when they come up against Jerusalem.
16And it shall come to pass, that every one that is left of all the nations which came against Jerusalem shall even go up from year to year to worship the King, the Lord of hosts, and to keep the feast of tabernacles.
2Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of trembling unto all the people round about, when they shall be in the siege both against Judah and against Jerusalem.
3And in that day will I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people: all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces, though all the people of the earth be gathered together against it.
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.
12And this shall be the plague wherewith the Lord will smite all the people that have fought against Jerusalem; Their flesh shall consume away while they stand upon their feet, and their eyes shall consume away in their holes, and their tongue shall consume away in their mouth.
Folks, it is a very stupid person who would defy the God of the Bible over Jerusalem. It would take a very stupid President of the United States to propose giving Jerusalem to the Palestinian Authority. It would take some very stupid Jewish politicians to even think about dividing this city of God. It would take a very stupid generation of gentile politicians to scoff at what God has said in the Bible. Most obviously it will take a very stupid Islamic religion to teach their little children that Jerusalem must be taken from the Jews.
Friend, do not think you can defy God. Jerusalem is the city where the God of the Bible intends to establish His Son as the King. It is the LORD Jesus Christ who is more important to the God of the Bible then all of Islam. It is Christ who is more important then all the false man-made religions of all history. They are all doomed to fail, but Christ will never fail. I would invite you to know this Christ of the Bible who provided the only perfect atonement for sin at Calvary. His resurrection proved Him victorious over sin and death. He offers you eternal life if you will come to Him. Only He through His precious blood can wash away all your sin. He is willing, but you must be willing also. You must be willing to let Him change your heart. It is His righteousness that must reign for all eternity not your sinful desires. Friend, won't you come to this Christ of the Bible, and be saved. You can't break the bands of sin no matter how hard you try, but the LORD Jesus Christ can! He will, if you just come to Him. The world does not want Christ. They want to sin. They do not want a righteous King to rule over them. Friend, you must leave this worldly crowd, and come to Christ for the eternal life He offers.
Tuesday July 21, 2009'The Temple Will Never be Rebuilt', Islamist Movement Saysby Yehudah Lev Kay
(IsraelNN.com) The deputy chief of the Islamist movement in Israel Kimal Al-Khatib told thousands of children in a Saturday Islamist protest on the Temple Mount that the Jewish Temple will never be rebuilt. His speech was published in the Jerusalem-based Al-Quds Al-Arabi newspaper Monday morning.
“If the Jews think that their mourning will end and they will rejoice by destroying the Al-Aqsa mosque and building their Temple, we say to them that their dream will not be fulfilled and they will continue to mourn. Al-Aqsa is for Muslims only,” he said.
Al-Khatib was referring to the traditional period of mourning Jews commemorate every summer for the destruction of the Holy Temples on Tisha B'Av (The ninth of the Hebrew month of Av). The Second Temple was destroyed in 70 CE by the Romans, while the Dome of the Rock and the Al-Aqsa mosque were erected in 691 and 705 CE.
The Head of the Islamist movement in Jerusalem, Icharma Savri, also spoke to the assembled children. He previously served as the Chief Mufti of the Palestinian Authority.
“I tell this gathering, swearing by Allah, and in defiance of our enemies. We pass this safekeeping from generation to generation. Al-Aqsa is the safekeeping of the future generations, one after the other, and the children are dedicated to Al-Aqsa. They are the generation which will free it from our enemies,” he said.
This swearing by Allah to prevent Ezekiel's Temple from being built is forced on every Islamic child. The adults forbid the children to have any other view other then their own. Islam passes on their blasphemies from generation to generation. I often tell folks they must leave the crowds to find the Christ of the Bible. It certainly holds true for these Islamic crowds who drag their children down into the same cesspool they have chosen for themselves. Islam is the only religion in the world that puts the death penalty on any who would leave the faith. These little children know the penalty should they ever question their religious leaders. This is not religion as defined by mankind. It is barbarianism. The political leaders of this generation will be shamed throughout eternity for not telling the truth about Islam. The blood of these little children will be on their hands forever.
Islam has chosen the Temple Mount, and the city of Jerusalem as the place where they will stand unto the death. They swear by Allah that they will never allow the Jews to build the next Holy Jewish Temple there. This has nothing to do with politics anymore. It is a direct challenge aimed against the God of the Bible by this barbarian culture. Islam stands before the secular world of this generation saying the God of the Bible is too small to do anything in this present confrontation with Allah. Islam defies Him to complete what He started with this miraculous Third Exodus. The world politicians are siding with Islam over the Bible. Our own President of the United States is putting all the influence that resides in America in support of his Two-State Solution that would cut the heart out of the Jewish Promised Land. There must be some sort of perverted feeling of power in thinking God must adjust to the future of the Holy Land as proposed by Obama. Many gentile heads of State have often thought similarly, but the grave always ended their prideful desires without them ever changing the Biblical course of history. Not one powerful world politician has ever been able to stop the God of the Bible. No gentile power, no matter how great, has been able to stop the Jews from reaching their dream. They prayed for centuries "next year Jerusalem," and now that Jerusalem is Jewish no power on earth can stop the Jews from building Ezekiel's Temple.
Friend, the LORD Jesus Christ is coming again just as is promised in the Bible. He is coming to the Holy Land, Jerusalem, and the Temple Mount. He is coming as the King of the Jews. Islam must submit to this coming Jewish King, or they will perish. The United States must submit to this coming Jewish King, or it will also perish. The gentile nations must submit to this coming Jewish King, or they likewise will perish. This has nothing to do with politics. It has everything to do with the God of the Bible. Friend, have you made peace with this God by coming to His only begotten Son? It is Christ who made the perfect atonement for sin at Calvary. He is the one, and only Savior of which the Bible speaks. The blood of all of Islam is worthless when compared to Christ. God wiped out greater nations in the past who followed false man-made gods. A billion barbarians are but dust on the scales when God deals in judgment. Friend, God tells us in the Bible that Christ loves us, and paid the price for sin at the cross. His resurrection proved the acceptance of His perfect sacrifice, and He had the victory over sin and death. That victory can be yours if you will come to Him, and accept the gift of grace that He offers you so freely. It is Christ, not Mohammed, who loves the lost sinner. Friend, won't you come to this Christ of the Bible, and live.
Wednesday July 22, 2009Gaza Arabs Fire at Israeli Construction Workers
(IsraelNN.com) Gaza terrorists fired shots Tuesday at Defense Ministry construction crews carrying out work on the security fence near Ein HaShlosha. No one was hurt.
A volunteer at Ein HaShlosha was killed by terrorist fire in January 2008.
Here is an example of the news that will be coming out of Israel should the Obama Two-State Solution ever go into effect. Instead of the shots coming out of Gaza only they will be coming from everywhere once Judah and Samaria become Arabic. Should anyone complain the Palestinian Authority will say we need more guns to fight the terrorists, but just like in the Gaza the guns will go to the terrorists first before ever going to the defense forces who in name only fight the terrorists. Obama knows this well, but he continues telling this lukewarm American public he sides with our friend Israel. He says he only has the most peaceful intent for the welfare of Israel.
I can tell you the favorite targets of the snipers because this was who they were shooting at before Israel cracked down on this kind of terrorism. The rank and file Arab snipers were targeting children. Jewish children in busses going to school. Jewish children in playgrounds. And, most barbaric of all, Jewish children in strollers. These were the targets of choice when the Arabs could hide in the Arab villages close to Israeli towns. Walls had to be built blocking Arab view, and checkpoints in the Arab villages that prevented Arabs from traveling caring firearms. Obama would restore the Arab's ability to shoot Jews for target practice.
Everything I know about the Palestinian Arabs indicate these are barbarians. Their actions, the government leaders they appoint, the educators they choose to teach their children, the religion they follow. The entire culture is based on barbarianism. The central focus of these people is destroying the Jews. It is hate plain and simple that drives the culture. We now have had a series of Evangelical (in name only) Presidents who reward these barbarians for their actions. Obama keeps waving Judah, and Samaria in their face saying here is my reward to you. The city of Jerusalem is promised to them as their capital no matter that the Jewish government after the Six Day War voted Jerusalem as the Jewish capital. The nations of the world have rejected the Jewish claim to Jerusalem, but are ready to support Jerusalem as the Palestinian Arab Capital. This is a terrible indictment of the Gentile Nations from a Biblical perspective. the anger of God will not be turned back. This generation is ripe for judgment.
Friend, the Bible says you also are ripe for judgment. Your sins have condemned you already. God has every right to judge you by His wrath. It is only through Christ the Savior where hope can be found. Only Christ is God incarnate. He shed His perfect blood at Calvary so a perfect atonement for sin could be offered. His resurrection proved His sacrifice was accepted. Christ is the only man ever to be perfectly sinless. Only His blood carries the perfect atonement for sin. It is only to Him you can go if you want to be forgiven of your sin. No religion in the world can save. It is only the perfect Christ who applies His atonement to the lost sinner. Friend, the requirement is that you come to Him. He will not force you to be saved, but He promises He will never turn away the repentant sinner coming for salvation. It is the perfect holiness of Christ that drives the sinner to repentance. And, I tell you true there is no one who is saved who has not repented of their sin. Friend, won't you come to this Christ of the Bible, and live eternally.

Israel Unhappy with Clinton Remarks on Defense
by Gil Ronen
(IsraelNN.com) U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said Wednesday that if Iran continued with its nuclear program despite President Barack Obama's overtures, her country would respond by increasing its military aid to friendly nations in the region. Israel, which prefers an offensive approach to the Iranian danger rather than a defensive one, was unhappy with the remarks.
In 2007, the U.S. agreed to provide weapons worth at least $16 billion to its allies in the Gulf, including Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Bahrain, Qatar and the United Arab Emirates. Clinton said this could be taken a step further and the U.S. could choose to further "upgrade the defense of our partners in the region".
"If the US extends a defense umbrella over the region, if we do even more to support the military capacity of those in the Gulf, it's unlikely that Iran will be any stronger or safer because they won't be able to intimidate and dominate as they apparently believe they can once they have a nuclear weapon," said Mrs. Clinton in Thailand, ahead of an Asian security conference to be held in the Thai resort of Phuket.
Mrs. Clinton said that her country "still hold[s] the door open" to talks with Tehran, but added the "nuclear clock is ticking". She also reiterated a statement she made several weeks ago, regarding "crippling action" that could also be taken against Iran.
"I heard without enthusiasm the American declarations according to which the U.S. will defend their allies in the event that Iran uses nuclear weapons, as if they were already resigned to such a possibility," Israeli Intelligence Services Minister Dan Meridor said.
"This is a mistake," he added. "We cannot act now by assuming that Iran will be able to arm itself with a nuclear weapon, but [rather] to prevent such a possibility."
Clinton later clarified her remarks and explained that they did not signal a change in U.S. policy. "I am simply pointing out that Iran needs to understand that its pursuit of nuclear weapons will not advance its security," she said. "It faces the prospect, if it pursues nuclear weapons, of sparking an arms race in the region.”
NPR quoted Flynt Leverett, a senior fellow at the New America Foundation in Washington, D.C., as saying that Clinton's idea of providing a defense umbrella over the Gulf is not a new one. She discussed it during the Democratic Party’s primaries has mentioned it again since then, the expert claimed.
Leverett explained that "The Israelis' preferred way to stop [the Iranian nuclear program] would be to launch a military strike. For them, this is troubling because it raises questions about whether the U.S. would ever be willing to launch a strike or to let them do it.”
Robert Malley, an analyst with the International Crisis Group, also told NPR that Secretary Clinton's comments do not mean that the U.S. has accepted a nuclear-armed Iran as inevitable.
It appears Obama just does not get it. Islam has declared war on the Bible. Islam is standing in the face of God ready to stop the soon coming Jewish King from ever establishing His Kingdom in the Holy Land, at Jerusalem, and on the Temple Mount. It was America who was given the greatest responsibility to protect the Bible over the last centuries. We inherited the mantle from England where the great missionary endeavors were mounted, but apathy set in ending the era. Now America has moved into the Obama era where comfort has replaced Biblical responsibility. Change has set in, and now America sides with Islam over the Jews in all negotiations over sovereignty in the Holy Land. The latest taking of sides is this proposal to form a US backed military umbrella using Islamic Nations as a proposed solution to the nuclear weapons production taking place in Iran. It is like feeding the wolf before he attacks. Islam, and the Koran are the great enemies of God in this generation, and Obama is feeding the enemy. Obama is giving Israel even greater headaches then they already have. Obama is taking away the technical edge Israel has over Islam. Obama is only making Israel more vulnerable to their enemies. Enemies who hate the Jews, and will never tolerate a Jewish King ruling over the Holy Land.
Obama is an African American. He watched what Islam did, and is still doing in North Africa to the black Christians living there. He was alive to witness the massacres done to the praise of Allah. I would have thought His conversion to Evangelical Christianity would make him more aware of the danger of Islam. I now know his conversion was lip service only. It was a smart political move which won him the election. Now he is free to support Islam over the Bible upon which he spits with his Two-State Solution which is totally one sided in favor of Islam. The Bible says it is our works by which we will be judged. It will not be our lying lips, but our works. Obama is working hard to stop this miraculous Third Biblical Exodus of our generation. He is working hard not only to stop it, but reverse it. Right now he is advocating a return to the 1967 boarders before the miraculous Six Day War occurred when Israel in the aftermath became the sovereign of all of Judah and Samaria including all of the city of Jerusalem and the Temple Mount. Obama will not be satisfied there, but should he ever re-establish Islam within the 1967 boarders he will go right on to the 1948 boarders before Israel became a sovereign Nation. The changes Barack Obama is working on in the Holy Land is to turn back all God has done through the Jews in preparing the way for the return of the LORD Jesus Christ as the coming King of the Jews. It is not what Obama is saying to this gullible lukewarm Christian America, but it is what hie is doing in the Holy Land that is leading to final judgment.
My hope is that I will be translated out of this Obama era of America, and this Laodicean era of the Christian Church with some dignity. I do not want my testimony for eternity to be I was spewed out of this era because I was lukewarm, and neither cold or hot. I want all to know I hate the Charismatic movement for all the false doctrine they introduced into main stream Christianity. I hate all the Evangelicals who were more interested in numbers then doctrine. Who opened the door for the apostates to enter. I hate the phony Roman Catholic Church that has replaced Christ with the Virgin Mary. I hate the liberal Christians who deny a literal Bible. I hate all man-made religion that would propose other ways to heaven without Christ. Folks, what I love is the Christ of the Bible whom I would suffer all things. I love the testimony of the Bible which is the Lord Jesus Christ from cover to cover. And, dear friend, I love the lost sinner who needs Christ in order to be cleansed from all sin. It is not the false christs of religion, but the Christ of the Bible who has the power to change the heart. It is this Christ who came as the perfect atonement for sin when He died at Calvary of whom I speak. His resurrection proved that His sacrifice was acceptable to the Holy God of the Bible. Friend, I can tell you it is this Christ to whom you can come for salvation. Won't you come this very moment? Won't you make this Christ your Savior? The decision is yours. The power to keep this promise to you is His. Come to Christ, and live.

Obama Boomerang: Demand for Building Freeze Spurs Rush to Buy
by Tzvi Ben Gedalyahu
U.S. President Barack Obama’s attempt to freeze building for Jews in Judea and Samaria appears to be backfiring as real estate agency report a boom in new home sales in Maaleh Adumim, located several minutes east of Jerusalem.
The result is a further increase in the number of Jews living in Judea and Samaria, countering the intentions of the new American government.
The price of a three-bedroom apartment in Maaleh Adumin was $215,000 before President Obama’s campaign against Israel. The price for the same unit now is $244,000.
The city’s mayor Benny Kashriel said that all 450 apartment that are under construction, with previous government approval, are almost sold out. He vowed that Israel will not bow to American pressure against continued development. He told the American National Public Radio that “280,000 people in Judea and Samaria will be together against him, will demonstrate together and will not let our government compromise with him.”
Maaleh Adumim resident and American native Beth Gordon, who has been discussing buying property for her children, laughed at President Obama’s description of the city as a settlement.
“I ask people in the States, 'What do you think a settlement is?' And they say, 'I picture a caravan [mobile home without wheels] on a hill.' And I say, 'You have to come to Maaleh Adumim and visit us!' “she told NPR. Her desire for her children to live nearby is part of the “natural growth” that U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has decried.
The bottom line for most people is money. The cost of housing in Maaleh Adumim and other communities in Judea and Samaria is far less than in Jerusalem, where the housing market is way beyond the reach of the average Israeli.
Real estate agent Ayalon Cohen told NPR the he is selling six to 10 units a month, comparable to the fastest-growing areas in Israel. "There's a lot of demand. A young couple that wants to buy in Jerusalem cannot afford to do so," Cohen says.
There is a great change taking place in Israel. The housing crises goes back to the great influx of Soviet Jews who flooded into Israel after the fall of the Iron Curtain. A sellers market developed, and prices jumped through the roof. This influx of Jews was rightfully blamed for the housing crises, and vilified as a result despite the fact they were only seeking the freedom to worship God. These Soviet Jews could not afford housing in Israel proper, but the Six Day War of 1967 opened cheap land in Judah and Samaria from which Jordan had just retreated swearing they will never return to this cursed land. The Palestinian Arabs hated the Jordanians, and wanted to overthrow the Jordanian government as they are doing in Lebanon, and have done in the Gaza Strip. The world offered Jordan the return of the West Bank multiple times, but the Jordanians have vigorously refused every effort. These Soviet Jews flooded the job market as well, and it was not uncommon to find a Soviet Doctor sweeping floors in a factory. The vilifying called these Jews hillbillies. They were depicted as bumpkins where the best of them could only sweep the floors of the more sophisticated European and American Jews. It was mostly these Jews who became the Independent Fundamental Jewish Settlers of Judah and Samaria. They are the ones who built the Jewish cities now derogatorily called settlements in Judah and Samaria. They gained the respect of the other Jews by withstanding the rocket attacks coming from Gaza because it was their cities that stood on the boarder. The barbarian Palestinian Arabs could not intimidate them.
Today, the other Jews are realizing the intelligent move these settlers have made by moving into Judah and Samaria. The settler movement has gone out of the hillbilly class, and into main stream Judaism, The flood is on, and Obama now knows his phony peace plan attempt to give the Islamic Arabs Judah and Samaria is in trouble. This Third miraculous Exodus continues as the Jews occupy their Biblical Promised Land. Obama and Clinton threaten the Jews, but they are only ignored by the conservative government of Netanyahu.
My personal feelings are the 144,000 Jews coming out of every tribe spoken of in Revelation chapters 7 and 14 will be some of these Independent Fundamental Jewish Settlers now living on the very Jewish tribal lands of which are found in the Bible. I feel the LORD led them here to Israel in this generation so the prophecy can be fulfilled. Most Jews are so engrained in tradition that they would never turn to Christ as their Messiah, but these Soviet Jewish settlers come without the stigma of Jewish tradition. They come only knowing they are Jewish, and they know their God is the creator God. They will be more open to what God does in the rapture of true Christians more then the traditional Jews steeped in tradition. They have already suffered not only at the hands of the communist Russians, but also at the hands of their own Jewish brethren. They are now the thorn in the side to the Obama blasphemous Two-State Solution standing in the way of the turn over of Judah and Samaria to the Palestinian Authority. They are the object of vilification by the world gentile politicians. These are the Jews who stood toe to toe with the Islamic terrorists, and never flinched. When the whole world hates a group like this because they want to obey God by occupying the Promised Land, they get my attention.
Friend, I pray you are realizing how close we are to dispensational change. God is ending the Church Age, He is ending gentile rule of planet earth. He is preparing the way for a new dispensation. A Kingdom Age is coming, and the LORD Jesus Christ is getting ready to return as He promised in the Bible. Friend, now is the time to come to Christ. Tomorrow will be too late. Receive Christ as your Savior, and live.
28Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
29Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.
30For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.

As Tisha B'Av Approaches, Knesset Focuses on the Temple Mount
by IsraelNN staff
(IsraelNN.com) As Tisha B'Av, the annual day of mourning over the destruction of the Temple, approaches, Members of Knesset met to talk about the Temple, its role in Jewish life, and Israel's approach to the Temple Mount today.Dr. Mordechai Keidar discussed the political implications of Israel's stance vis-a-vis the Temple Mount. Referring to the Palestinian Authority's demands for Jerusalem and the Temple Mount, he said, “The struggle for Jerusalem is not territorial, it is theological... do we give in to the Muslim claim that Judaism is no longer relevant?”
The Muslim view of Judaism is the root of the PA's refusal to recognize Israel as a Jewish country, he said. The PA's claims to Jerusalem are clearly not due to Islam's reverence for Jerusalem, as Jerusalem is not mentioned once in the Koran, he argued.
In response to those who say that Fatah is more moderate than Hamas when it comes to Jewish claims in Jerusalem, he showed the audience a PLO scarf bearing the words “Jerusalem is Ours,” with a picture of the Al-Aksa mosque on the Temple Mount. Even the “moderate” PLO sees it necessary to firmly reject all Jewish claim to the Temple Mount, he concluded.
Another speaker, MK Uri Ariel of the Ichud Leumi (National Union), related his encounter with a former chief of Israel police. MK Ariel opened his meeting with the police chief by inquiring into matters on the Temple Mount, and explained his interest by reminding the officer that the Temple Mount is Judaism's most holy site.
The officer was surprised, he recalled, as he had been told that the Western Wall is the holiest site in Judaism. Many share this misconception, Ariel said.
A Chabad rabbi was invited to speak as well, and shared a religious view of the matter. By laying a firm claim to sovereignty on the Temple Mount, Israel will not only not drive supporters away, but will actually win friends, he said.
"When you tell the nations of the world the truth, not only will they stop fighting against you, but they'll even join forces with you,” he explained.
I'm afraid the old rabbi lost his way when he said the nations want the truth. Folks the Bible says the Gentile Nations want the lie not the truth. The rabbi said the nations would join forces with the Jews once the Jews tell the truth that God has commanded them to build the next Holy Jewish Temple on the Temple Mount. The Bible says the Gentile Nations will seek the antichrist, and Armageddon rather then submit to a perfect Jewish King sitting on the throne that will be unique to this last Holy Jewish Temple yet to be built. Ezekiel 40 - 48 describes this coming Holy Jewish Temple , and this Temple has a throne for the LORD Jesus Christ when He returns as the King of the Jews.
7And he said unto me, Son of man, the place of my throne, and the place of the soles of my feet, where I will dwell in the midst of the children of Israel for ever, and my holy name, shall the house of Israel no more defile, neither they, nor their kings, by their whoredom, nor by the carcases of their kings in their high places.
Please note that the Jews recognize even the most moderate Moslems will never give up Jerusalem. As near as I can tell this out of necessity includes all of Islam. Understand folks that this is a root theological problem that can only be solved by either the Jews, or Islam being taken out of the equation. It is either the Koran, or the Bible! There is no fence sitting over Jerusalem. The Koran says Islam will in the end exterminate all the Jews. The Bible says in Ezekiel 38 & 39 that God is going to devastate Islam to such an extent that it will never be an influence anywhere in the Holy Land.
The Jewish politicians for the most part are in the hands of the Gentile World Politicians. It will not be until God changes the hearts of a new foundational group of Jews who will be given a mandate to build Ezekiel's Temple in anticipation for the return of the LORD Jesus Christ. The world will hate these Jews for their testimony. The Jewish politicians will hate these Jews for their testimony. They will be hated from within and without, but they will build Ezekiel's Temple on the Temple Mount once Islam has met it's Waterloo in Ezekiel 39.
I pray you are ready for the coming Biblical victory, and the end of Islamic influence over the Holy Land. I'm convinced these foundational Jews will bulldoze not only the blasphemous Islamic shrines off the Temple Mount, but will also bulldoze down that blasphemous wall which Jews have pounded their heads against since the last destruction of the Holy Jewish Temple. A wall of tradition never mentioned in the Bible that has separated them from their Holy Temple Mount over the last 2,000 years. Folks. just as Jerusalem is not mentioned in the Koran, so also is the Wailing Western Wall never mentioned in the Bible. It is only found in the unbiblical traditions of phony Judaism. The time has come for the Jews to discard unbiblical tradition, and turn back to the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. The time is now for Ezekiel's Temple to be built!

Netanyahu, Mitchell report ‘progress’ in settlement talks
Obama team giving Israel, Palestinians 18 months to conclude peace deal
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and US special Middle East envoy George Mitchell both came out of their latest meeting in Jerusalem on Tuesday claiming that “progress” had been made in resolving the lingering dispute over Washington’s demand that Israel impose a total freeze on Jewish settlement activity.
Netanyahu remarked afterwards, "I think we're making progress toward achieving an understanding that would enable us to continue, and in fact complete, a peace process that would be established between us and our Palestinian neighbors and ultimately the entire region." Seeking to calm Israeli nerves, Mitchell assured that Israel and the US were "friends and allies," and that indeed "good progress" was made towards ending the settlements row, which has gotten the Obama administration and the Netanyahu government off on the wrong foot.
Israeli officials said it is emerging from the current round of talks with a quartet of US officials – including Mitchell, Defense Secretary Robert Gates, special Iran advisor Dennis Ross and special Mideast security advisor Gen. James Jones – that the Obama administration does not intend to table its own peace plan as yet, but rather will set a time frame to encourage Israel and the Palestinians to reach a final peace deal that has wider Arab backing.
The London-based newspaper Al-Hayat reported today that Mitchell has indicated those final status talks will take place for no more than one and a half years. According to the report, which cited "reliable" sources, the American administration is currently working for an agreement on the borders of a future Palestinian state. Once that agreement is reached, efforts would be made to find a compromise on settlement construction.
In recent weeks, Washington and Jerusalem were reportedly closing in on an understanding whereby Israel would announce a temporary moratorium on new housing starts in the West Bank in exchange for being able to complete some 2,500 apartments already under construction as well as Arab gestures towards normalization with Israel. But once it became clear the Arab states were not willing to budge, the sense in Jerusalem was that the pressure from the Obama administration would begin to relent.
However, Mitchell dismissed that impression in talks in Ramallah on Monday with Palestinian Authority chairman Mahmoud Abbas, assuring him that the US demand for a settlement freeze remains unchanged. "Mitchell told Abbas that contrary to what has been said in the mass media there is no agreement with the Israeli side on anything," Palestinian official Saaeb Erekat told reporters
Israeli sources added today that the Obama team, while initially disappointed by the Arab position, has decided to simply redouble their efforts to wrest “meaningful gestures” towards Israel. To that end, Mitchell has so far visited the United Arab Emirates, Syria, and Egypt during his current regional swing.
Meanwhile, around 1,500 people gathered to protest outside the Prime Minister’s residence in Jerusalem on Monday evening and called on Netanyahu to simply say "no" to US pressure to freeze settlement activity. "People tell us that it is impossible to stand up against American pressure; there is no bigger lie," shouted Dani Dayan, who heads the Settlers Council. "David Ben-Gurion founded Israel in spite of American pressure... Menachem Begin destroyed Osirak in spite of American opposition, and Yitzhak Shamir rejected American demands to stop construction."
Let's face the truth! A total freeze on Jewish Settlement activity is just another way of saying "stop this miraculous Third Exodus that God has decided to bring about in this our generation." A total freeze means let us stop the God of the Bible in His tracks. This generation has decided God does not know what He is doing in the Holy Land! Let our worldly wise politicians lead us to peace. Folks, it is this rejection of the God of the Bible that is leading the way of this generation to Armageddon.
I think we now have a grasp of how Obama is going to lead. He will never admit he is wrong. His Two-State Solution will never go away even after the Islamic Arabs make it as clear as possible that they do not want peace. They only want to kill the Jews. It wasn't until the end of World War Two that the politicians finally got the message that the Nazis only wanted to exterminate the Jews. There was no compromising. There were no offers that could sway the Nazis from their "final solution." Obama will never give up on his Two-State Solution no matter how many holocausts perpetrated by the Islamic Arabs take place. The Two-State Solution is the Obama Peace plan for the Holy Land, and he can never be wrong.
The other thing we now know about Obama leadership is endless negotiations even when there is no movement whatsoever. The negotiations go on forever. Nothing really happens, but the spin! Deadlines are the secret to keeping the endless negotiations in the news. Deadlines that come, and go with only more deadlines proposed to cover-over failed leadership. Prepare for endless deadlines throughout the Obama reign. Prepare for endless talk of peace that never comes in the Holy Land. Obama is not a leader! He is just another politician! Another anti-Bible puffed-up politician who thinks himself something great, and to whom God is irrelevant.
The truth that God is preparing this generation for the return of the LORD Jesus Christ is meaningless to Obama, and all the other world politicians. The Holy Land is just another place to make political hay. The politicians see themselves as the ones who let the Jews back into their Promised Land, and think whenever politically convenient they can get rid of them. The plan that is never going to happen is the Two-State Solution that would not just stop this miraculous Third Exodus, but would turn back the prophetic clock God has already put into motion. Obama wants the pre-1967 Six Day War boarders not with the Jordanians who were the sovereigns at the time, but with the Palestinian Authority formed by the leading terrorist of this generation Yasser Arafat. Obama calls this a peace plan. I call it blasphemy!
Friend, you'll not be able to hide from reality for long. dispensational change is coming to the Holy Land, and the entire planet. Only those who are in Christ will not suffer the judgments found in the Bible. The die is cast dear friend. Either you are born again, or you are going to judgment. I pray you will come to the Christ of the Bible before it is too late. Friend, I pray you are a seeker after truth.
