Effie Eitam: We Must Fight "Impure" Thoughts
18:24 Jun 02, '04 / 13 Sivan 5764
NRP head Housing Minister Eitam, one of the prime opponents of the disengagement plan, said, "The battle now is to raise awareness of the corruption inherent in uprooting living, flowering, legal communities."
Arutz-7's Ariel Kahane spoke today with Housing Minister Effie Eitam, head of the National Religious Party and one of the prime opponents of the disengagement plan. Kahane said, "Prime Minister Sharon says, 'The plan will be passed on Sunday, period.' Do you have any idea where he found this majority that he has long been seeking?"
Eitam: "I don't know, but I do know that we are now standing at one of the most critical junctures for the future of Zionism and the People of Israel" - and he explained why. Regarding the possibility of accepting a compromise proposal that would postpone the implementation of the withdrawal/expulsion for a year from now, or that would merely "declare a government intention" to retreat from Gaza, Eitam said the following:
"One of the great rabbis of Israel with whom we consulted said, 'Let's say that a government in Israel decides that the Sabbath will no longer be a day of rest, but that this decision will only take effect in a year from now - can anyone imagine that we would remain in the government?!'
"It must be clear that the battle now is to raise awareness of the rot and corruption inherent in uprooting living, flowering, legal communities. This thing - which comes from the truly impure thought that it's OK to do business with living parts of the Land, the People, and the Torah - this thought is truly impure, and we must have no part of it. And all those [such as Eitam's competing party colleague, Minister Zevulun Orlev - ed. note] who say, 'Let's just remain a little bit longer and we'll see how it develops - I say No! This very thought of the political leadership of Israel has to be fought, before it turns into actions.
"The NRP, and I personally, plan to fight against it with all our strength. We will go from town to town, from yeshiva to yeshiva, from person to person, and we will awaken the healthy forces in the nation that, as we have seen, are not willing to accept this lie. There's a story about a town where everyone began going insane, little by little, until there were only two people left who were still sane. They said to themselves, 'How will we know that we're still sane? Maybe they'll convince us that we're the crazy ones!' So they decided to make themselves a mark on their foreheads - tefillin on their heads, so to speak - that would remind them, whenever they looked at each other, that they were OK - and that even though the whole world had gone crazy, and even though commentator after commentator, and public official after public official, and rogue after rogue comes with all sorts of rotten merchandise, they will stand strong - and from these two sane people will come the salvation of the entire crazy country. We plan not to be two sane people, but thousands of us who will not allow these warped ideas to take over."
Eitam then admitted that the "weakness that we expressed, to some extent, when we allowed the Road Map to go through, was the beginning of this slippery slope. Although we made it contingent upon the cessation of terrorism, which we knew would not happen - but still, in principle, this helped the weakness take root... So now we have to repair this... As I said, the intentions alone are very bad, and have to be uprooted before they can be turned into actions."
"There is something else, and we have to say it out loud and without fear. We have another partner in this process of the Redemption of Israel and our return to the Land of Israel, and that is G-d. If you look at the entire history of Zionism, from the day it began, you see that it was always implemented in a joint manner - our actions, together with His. There have always been miracles. For instance, the recent referendum looked like it was going to be a walk-away victory for Sharon - but suddenly, the combination of our total dedication, and our faith, and our belief in the little speck of life, truth and holiness that is found in the heart of each and every Jew - turned the tables. We must not think that if we merely add one and one, it will come out two, and that everything goes according to predictable, rational rules... We are currently charged with one thing: strengthening the truth. G-d is not a coward, and He knows how to get things done, and when He sees that we are dedicated to this truth, there is no limit to what can be done."
Recognize the battle (tooth and nail fighting) now shaping up between the secular and religious Jews of Israel. The religious minority is at great disadvantage in a democracy. The even smaller minority who hold true to the purity of the literal Bible that commands the Jews to occupy, and conquer the Promised Land have almost no voice in Israeli politics. Yes, there are pompous Jews who think they deserve the land simply because they are Jewish, but there are also many who humbly recognize what a miracle it is that this generation can settle the land of their fathers. The pressure of decision is being forced on every Jew living in the Holy Land. Will we trust in men, or will we trust in God? Will we trust in politics, or will we trust in the Bible?
This is not the first time in Israeli history when the majority was wrong! The prophet Ezekiel had to stand against the crowd. It appears we are in another era where standing on the Word will draw only distain. The world hates the Independent fundamental Jewish settlers as it hates the idea of the coming Biblical Kingdom to the Holy Land, at Jerusalem, and on the Temple Mount. Mankind is quickly seeing that the Biblical Kingdom will end freedom of religion to worship anything but the Biblical Christ. The Palestinian culture must either submit or perish. The righteousness coming with the Kingdom will end the freedom of mankind to openly sin. All forms of sexual perversion will be outlawed. The Sabbath will be mandatory - no ball games, no fishing, no picnics, no nothing, but worshipping the Triune God of all creation. The Law of God as revealed in the Bible will be the Law for planet earth. It will not just be the Jews who will be required to keep the Law, but surviving gentiles will be just as responsible.
16 And 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.
17 And it shall be, that whoso will not come up of all the families of the earth unto Jerusalem to worship the King, the LORD of hosts, even upon them shall be no rain.
This generation does not want the enforcement of Biblical righteousness. They would rather have the wicked Palestinian Arabs in the Holy Land, at Jerusalem, and in control of the Temple Mount then the King, the LORD of hosts! This generation would rather give Arafat his rights then the LORD Jesus Christ.
It is time for God's children to stand firm against this generation. Are you willing to stand on the Bible, and the promise of the coming Kingdom? The world is rushing to Armageddon. The secular Jews are being swept along in the rush. In these critical days, where are you? I am absolutely secure in the Biblical Christ! I have no fear what the future holds for me. I know because of the assurances in the Bible that I abide in Christ. I have confidence, and know I will not be ashamed at His coming. Not because of what I have done, or where I have stood. But, because of what He did for me at Calvary of which I humbly submit.

Waqf Expanding Past The
18:49 Jun 03, '04 / 14 Sivan 5764
The Moslem Waqf is now beginning to take control not only over the Temple Mount, but also over areas adjacent to it. So says Nadav Shragai, author of a book on the topic of the struggle over the Mount.
Shragai told Arutz-7 yesterday that the Muslims are expanding the cemetery outside the eastern wall of the Temple Mount, and are now using area near the southeastern corner for burial. "The Nature and Parks Authority is trying to fight the Waqf on this," Shragai said, "and has enlisted the help of the Jerusalem Municipality, but they are having trouble. For one thing, the Prime Minister has ordered that everything having to do with the Temple Mount must go through his office, and also because in general the Waqf does whatever it wants..."
Shragai estimates that the Waqf's consent to allow Jews to visit the Temple Mount came at the price of being allowed a relatively free hand regarding matters such as digging and construction on the Mount - "and possibly adjacent to it, as well."
Shragai said that the media take interest in the Temple Mount only when a catastrophe occurs: "If there is a violent clash on the Mount or near it, all the press would rush to the site, and then there would be news about whatever it was that sparked the clash: the Moslem cemetery that is being expanded, or the digging on the Mount, etc. But when everything is quiet, the press takes no interest."
The focus of every Bible believing Christian interested in prophecy should first be the Holy Land. That focus should fine tune to Jerusalem specifically, and the Temple Mount intensely. We know all dispensations revealed in the Bible have this one place as the focus of all history. All Biblical blood sacrifice condensed to just this one place as history progressed. There was no other place on planet earth where acceptable Biblical sacrifice for sin could be given after the First Temple was built! The Bible is clear God is not finished with this place! The coming Kingdom dispensation centers around Ezekiel's Jewish Temple, and the altar of blood sacrifice it will contain. The Bible is ever so clear that for the 1000 year reign of Christ this Temple will stand at the center of everything happening in the Holy Land, and at Jerusalem. Both the Old Testament, and the New Testament confirm this truth!
One of the most necessary blessings coming from Ezekiel's altar will be the fount that will begin to flow at the Second Coming of Christ at the end of the Great Tribulation. Altar cleansing water mixed with blood will flow from the altar to the oceans of the Middle East, and outward encompassing the entire planet. They will bring life to a planet devastated by war and judgments brought about by the antichrist as he rises to power. Much like Hitler the antichrist will more then destroy his birth nation. He will destroy the earth. God gave this planet a realistic lesson with World War II to the last generation of what man will do when God is ignored. This generation remains oblivious to the obvious. The die is cast for those who have turned their back on the Bible. This generation is on record as giving the most holy place in the Bible to the heathen, Koran loving, hate mongering culture, that world history has ever recorded. Even the secular Jews submit to gentile pressure in doing nothing as these heathen gleefully shed their filth over everything most Biblically holy. It is this generation that God will execute His wrath. The lukewarm, lily livered, Christian Church of this generation remains silent to the "Road Map" that gives the heathen the encouragement to defy the Bible with even greater vindictiveness.
What was called the greatest generation has been followed by the worst generation of rich, do nothing, Christians who left the phony, mystical, Charismatics take over main stream Christianity. Fundamental doctrine demanding separation through Biblical righteousness and holiness was dumped for unity. The Evangelical leadership of this generation has brought about the greatest failure of Christian doctrine in all history. "Born Again" has been hijacked by the phony TV showman and showwoman on their watch.
The time for dispensational change is near. Watch the Temple Mount to see the truth of what the Bible has always said would happen. It is the Bible that will be proven true, and the Koran will be thrust on the dung hill of failed man centered history.
Are you washed in the blood? Only the shed blood of Christ has power over sin. All other blood, or sacraments can only be referenced to this one time sacrifice of Christ at Calvary. He was taken outside the city as the Red Heifer Bullock must first be sacrificed to provide the cleansing necessary for Ezekiel's altar, and for any of the other Temple altars before they could be sanctified (acceptable to a Holy God). My friend, there is only one way to be sanctified (made holy) according to the Bible, and that is to receive the Biblical Christ into the inner man of your heart! Only then can your sins be forgiven. Only then will Christ personally apply His blood for you. Won't you come to Him right now?

Moslem Prof.: Quran States that Holy Land is
15:51 Jun 06, '04 / 17 Sivan 5764
Prof. Khaleel Mohammed of San Diego State University is the latest Moslem expert to say that the Quran - the holiest Moslem work - is actually Zionist. He thus joins Sheikh Palazzi, secretary-general of the Italian Muslim Association.
Prof. Khaleel Mohammed, Assistant Professor at the Department of Religious Studies at San Diego State University, is the latest Moslem expert to say that the Quran - the holiest Moslem work - is actually Zionist.
In an interview with Jamie Glazov of FrontPageMagazine.com three days ago (June 3, 2004), Mohammed quoted the Qur'an (5:20-21) as saying:
"Moses said to his people: O my people! Remember the bounty of God upon you when He bestowed prophets upon you, and made you kings and gave you that which had not been given to anyone before you amongst the nations. O my people! Enter the Holy Land which God has written for you, and do not turn tail, otherwise you will be losers."
Prof. Mohammed emphasized that the above phrase "God has written for you" is very significant: "In both Jewish and Islamic understandings of the term 'written,' there is the meaning of finality, decisiveness and immutability... So the simple fact is then, from a faith-based point of view: If God has 'written' Israel for the people of Moses, who can change this?" He also quoted two of Islam's most famous exegetes - Ibn Kathir and Muhammad al-Shawkani - as supporting this explanation.
Imam Abdul Hadi Palazzi, secretary-general of the Italian Muslim Association, has long promoted that it is possible to be a Muslim scholar and leader and still support America, Israel and democracy. Citing pro-Jewish verses in the Quran, Sheikh Palazzi told a Jewish audience in Cleveland recently, "There are many good Muslims who value life on earth and the sanctity of their families. Israel should make every effort to support the growth of a pro-Israel movement among these Muslims... [but sadly, Muslims in Israel were emotionally and morally defeated by the Oslo Accords.] They felt that Israel was selling them out to Arafat. They need to be supported and encouraged to speak out in defense of Israel without fear of being assassinated by the PLO or Hamas... Oslo signaled to many of us that Israel was ready to accept peace at any price, and make incredible concessions to ruthless criminals."
Arab-American Nonie Darwish has recently opened a website <"www.ArabsforIsrael.com">. The site states, inter alia, "We are Arabs and Moslems who believe we can support the State of Israel and the Jewish religion and still treasure our Arab and Islamic culture."
Prof. Mohammed, in his interview with FrontPageMagazine, apportions at least partial blame for today's wars to the Muslims of the 7th century:
"[W]hen the Muslims entered that land [the Holy Land] in the seventh century, they were well aware of its rightful owners [the Jews], and when they failed to act according to divine mandate (at least as perceived by followers of all Abrahamic faiths), they aided and abetted in a crime. And the present situation shows the fruits of that action - wherein innocent Palestinians and Israelis are being killed on a daily basis."
"When the Muslims conquered Jerusalem," Prof. Mohammed continued, "it should have been left open for the rightful owners to return. It is possible that Jewish beliefs of the time only allowed such return under a Messiah - but that should not have influenced Muslim action... [The] Muslim occupation and building a mosque on the site of the Temple was something that was not sanctioned by The Quran. How honest is contemporary Islam with this? Given the situation in the Middle East, politicking, etc. stands in the way of honesty."
Prof. Mohammed says that Muslim groups have frequently denounced him because "I am out of line with the geo-political movement towards fundamentalism. What your readers must understand is that fundamentalism is rapidly becoming mainstream. Moderation is not. A perfect example is in Akbar Ahmed's "Islam Under Siege," where he points out that the Taliban are no longer a fringe group in Pakistan; many Pakistanis are finding themselves drawn to their teachings. Right here in the US, I present a problem to those at mosques who use social pressure to coerce others into accepting their extremism.. Many Muslims stand against me for no other reason than I say that Israel has a right to exist... I in no way deny that Palestinians have rights. But this is generally not considered by those that criticize my position..."
Is it not ironic that contained within the very writings of Islam is the statement that the Holy Land belongs to the Jews. The reason why is because Mohamed read the Bible. He did not respond to the truth, but could not deny the overwhelming evidence that the Holy Land is Jewish. If that makes him a Zionist, then every reader of the Bible is a Zionist also. The media, the politicians, and the gentile world in general do not agree with the statement that the Holy Land is Jewish. The most logical conclusion would be they never read the Bible, or read it with such animosity that even what Mohamed concluded was beyond their capacity to comprehend.
Islamic fundamentalism is a philosophy rather then adherence to the written word. They follow the philosophy of Mohamed who wrote the Koran putting it above the Bible. Even then they pick and choose which parts of the Koran they want to agree with. Apostate Christianity is as much a philosophy as is Islam. The Roman Catholics put tradition above the written word. It is how they come up with a Roman Pope, and Mary worship. Most who call themselves Christian put works above grace picking and choosing only those parts of the Bible that fortify this philosophy. Another large part of Christianity follow the philosophy of love leaving out all that the Bible says about the wrath demanded by holiness when rejected.
Judaism as practiced in Israel is nothing more then the leaven of the Pharisees. It has been corrupted into a legalistic hodgepodge of keeping only parts of the Bible. Again, tradition is put above the written word. The most holy part of traditional Judaism is the Torah (5 Books of Moses), yet they ignore the center of the Torah the book of Leviticus. God gave the Jews of Israel sovereignty over the Temple Mount 37 years ago, but they are yet to obey Leviticus. A kosher Red Heifer Bullock has been miraculously born in Israel, and they just lock it away out of sight and out of mind.
There is only one kind of fundamentalism that God demands of every man, and that is the fundamentalism of the literal Bible! All other forms of fundamentalism are anathema! They are the philosophies of men incorrectly called fundamentalism. It is the clear fundamental teaching of the Bible that is the only fundamentalism required by the God of the Bible.
The most fundamental truth found in the Bible is that all of mankind is corrupt. We need a Savior to save us from our sin. The LORD Jesus Christ came and died on Calvary providing the sacrificial blood necessary for sin to be forgiven. This is the fundamental record of the Bible. God offers this single atonement as a free gift to any who will ask, but you must ask the Biblical Christ personally. It is the only fundamental way to be saved.

MINISTERS AS LIKUD DEAL FOLDS
Draconian step secures cabinet majority for disengagement plan
Forty-eight hours before Sunday’s vote on the Gaza disengagement plan and still lacking a majority in Cabinet, Prime Minister Ariel Sharon summarily dismissed the National Union party from the coalition, firing Transport Minister Avigdor Lieberman and Tourism Minister Benny Elon first thing Friday morning.
"According to the protocols of the law I have decided to relieve you of your post, as is my right as prime minister," Sharon said in a terse dismissal letter dispatched to each of the minister’s homes after they failed to respond to his 9:00 am summons.
The departures leave Sharon with a slender Cabinet majority, following the collapse late Thursday night of a compromise proposal being brokered with dissenting ministers from his own Likud faction. But it also narrows his Knesset majority down to one seat.
The draconian step also raises the possibility that the National Religious Party could soon walk out of the Likud-led coalition, toppling the government and forcing new elections.
After a day in which it seemed Immigration and Absorption Minister Tzipi Livni had managed to persuade the three leading Likud skeptics to withdraw their opposition and allow the plan to pass through Sunday’s crucial Cabinet meeting without firing any ministers, Sharon on Thursday night admitted the deal was off.
"I didn't ignore all sorts of attempts and compromises, but there were some things I couldn't give in to, and I didn't,” he told Ha’aretz.
In turn the three Likud rebels, Finance Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, Foreign Minister Silvan Shalom and Education Minister Limor Livnat, accused Sharon of betraying a commitment not to freeze funds to Gaza settlements slated for evacuation, apparently after coming under strong pressure from the Bush administration in Washington.
But Sharon was adamant. “I need a majority on Sunday, and when I found out that this threesome was going to vote against me, I invited the National Union ministers for tomorrow in order to fire them."
With the morning papers full of speculation about the sackings, party leader Lieberman said Friday morning he had no obligation to support the disengagement plan because it had not been adopted by the government. "I'm being fired for disagreeing with the prime minister," he claimed, adding he would have resigned anyway had the plan passed.
It should be obvious the more God forces Sharon to obey His Biblical commands for the Jews to occupy and conquer the Holy Land, the harder Sharon's heart becomes. Resisting God is never wise. I do not expect things to go well for Sharon at the end. Right now, he prospers with the backing of the gentile world, but wiser minds know the gentiles will turn on the Jews in the end. Those who think they are riding high on the popular political wave will soon find themselves overwhelmed, and dashed to pieces before it hits the shore.
Antiochus Epiphanies exemplifies the back stabbing politics of the gentile antichrist. Sharon represents the secular Jewish politicians who thought they could compromise with this monster from the past. The historical account in the book of Maccabees says it all:
10 And there came out of them a wicked root Antiochus surnamed Epiphanes, son of Antiochus the king, who had been an hostage at Rome, and he reigned in the hundred and thirty and seventh year of the kingdom of the Greeks.
11 In those days went there out of Israel wicked men, who persuaded many, saying, Let us go and make a covenant with the heathen that are round about us: for since we departed from them we have had much sorrow. 12 So this device pleased them well. 13 Then certain of the people were so forward herein, that they went to the king, who gave them licence to do after the ordinances of the heathen: 14 Whereupon they built a place of exercise at Jerusalem according to the customs of the heathen: 15 And made themselves uncircumcised, and forsook the holy covenant, and joined themselves to the heathen, and were sold to do mischief.The Apocrypha : King James Version. 1995 (1 Mac 1:10). Oak Harbor, WA: Logos Research Systems, Inc.
The same type wicked men are running the secular government of Israel today. They would follow the heathen into the secularization of Israel. They want to please the European Union that just last week stood against any mention of God in their newly contrived constitution. This is not the Biblical plan God has for Israel. It is a doomed plan that would withdraw the independent fundamental Jewish Settlers from the Gaza, or anywhere else in the Holy Land. A compromised Holy Land can only go one direction!
41 Moreover king Antiochus wrote to his whole kingdom, that all should be one people, 42 And every one should leave his laws: so all the heathen agreed according to the commandment of the king. 43 Yea, many also of the Israelites consented to his religion, and sacrificed unto idols, and profaned the sabbath. 44 For the king had sent letters by messengers unto Jerusalem and the cities of Juda that they should follow the strange laws of the land, 45 And forbid burnt offerings, and sacrifice, and drink offerings, in the temple; and that they should profane the sabbaths and festival days: 46 And pollute the sanctuary and holy peopleThe Apocrypha : King James Version. 1995 (1 Mac 1:41). Oak Harbor, WA: Logos Research Systems, Inc.
There is no future in compromise. Only separation unto holiness as revealed in the Bible can please God. The ultimate symbol of holiness is coming to the Temple Mount in the form of Ezekiel's Temple. All Jewish governments that resist this plan are doomed to the same fate as the wicked men during the times of the Maccabees. The appointed time seems ready to overtake this generation.

NEWS – BARGHOUTI
The Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigades - the terrorist offshoot of Yasser Arafat's governing Fatah movement - have threatened to kidnap and execute Israeli soldiers and civilians, including women and children, to avenge a multi-life prison term given to former West Bank Fatah commander Marwan Barghouti, Ha’aretz reports.
"We urge all our fighters to kidnap Zionists, children, women and soldiers and sentence them to death," the al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigades said in a statement faxed to Reuters Monday after a Tel Aviv court gave Barghouti five life sentences on Sunday for organizing a series of deadly shooting attacks.
It is an outrage to all civilized societies for any group to publicly publish that it will torture and kill children. How can this heathen, Islamic, Arab, Palestinian culture that produced, and supports this type of wild animal ever be considered to have a State of its own? It is only this present generation that can go on with the "Road Map" plan without reevaluation. Only this generation lets such statements just roll of its back. I only wonder if these were American Children that a response would be coming? But, these are Jewish children, and this gentile generation seems to think they deserve such treatment because of the actions of their parents. Only the Jews are suppose to allow the animalistic Palestinians to do their worst with no response. It is almost a gleeful thought to give these wild animals a State of their own in the Holy Land so they can forever torture the Jews! It is a thought that will only bring the wrath of God to this generation.
This "Road Map" plan must stop! It does not bring peace to the wild animals, but rather encourages them to even greater autocracies. The world just closes its eyes to the reality of what the "Road Map" is doing. This generation has willingly blinded itself to the Bible, and God's plan for the coming Kingdom. They would cause God hurt for forcing them to do what they do not want. They would spit in the eye of God in their pompous resistance to His written Word.
Stand apart from this evil generation. Recognize what God is doing in the Holy Land. The time is quickly approaching when the God of the Bible will say "Now will I arise!" "I will set him in safety from him that puffeth at him!" Be certain you are right with God through humble submission to His Word. Do not stand with those puffed up who have plans that go contrary to what God is doing in the Holy Land! It is but a small remnant that seek Biblical righteousness among this generation. We must stand on the Bible alone, and leave the crowd that is on the road to Armageddon!

Iran Recruits 10.000 for Jihad against US and
Dissident leader: When in trouble, Mullahs play martyrs card - Iran’s elite Revolutionary Guards have registered at least 10,000 young volunteers for "martyrdom operations," against US forces in Iraq and Israel, according to the London-based Arabic daily al-Sharq al-Awsat, following calls from Muslim leaders for men and woman to join the Global Islamic Campaign.
OUTPOST PRESSURE - America has turned up the heat on Israel to abide by pledges to Washington to evacuate illegal outposts, dismantle some West Bank checkpoints, and act quickly to implement the withdrawal from Gaza Strip settlements, according to Ha’aretz. A senior Bush administration official told the paper on Tuesday that Israel “can't come up with excuses all the time,” and it is high time PM Ariel Sharon follows his talk with action. Amid a tense coalition crisis the government has refrained from leveling many of the settlement enclaves it has declared illegal, for fear of alienating pro-settlement ministers.
UN PROTEST - Israel has protested Lebanese violations of the northern border to the UN following a round of cross-border artillery fire from the Iranian and Syrian-backed Hizb’Allah militia which left one IDF soldier wounded on Tuesday. "We see this as a grave violation by the Lebanese and an escalation on the northern border,” said Israel's charge de affairs at the UN in New York.
OFFICE STRIKE - Israeli helicopters fired three missiles at an office building in Gaza City late Tuesday reportedly in response to a rocket attack on motorists near the Negev town of Sderot earlier in the day. The target, that Israel said was a Hamas office but Palestinians argued was a bicycle factory suffered extensive damage but no injuries were reported. Earlier Tuesday afternoon five Israelis were treated for shock, and several cars were damaged when one of the terror group’s homemade Qassam rockets exploded on a road outside Sderot.
READY CACHE - Smugglers are waiting for a chance to transfer huge amounts of weapons and ammunition into the Gaza Strip, according to IDF regional commander Col. Pinky Zuaretz. The cache, includes anti-aircraft and anti-tank missiles, as well as Katyusha rockets, according Zuaretz who warned against Israel pulling out of the strategic Gaza-Egyptian border corridor in order to prevent major arms shipments in the future.
Make no mistake! A global Islamic campaign is underway to stop the God of the Bible from bringing His Kingdom to planet earth. The Middle East war is the battle over which book is true. The Koran, or the Bible! Islam knows it stands, or falls over one single event. Everything going on today is only preliminary to the great deciding event yet coming. Islam knows it is finished if the Jews should ever start building a Jewish Temple on the Temple Mount. The cry has gone out for Islamic Youth to put their lives on the line rather then allow the Jews their Temple. It is the Koran that demands death rather then submission. It is the Bible that demands the Temple be built!
The gentile "Road Map" designed by the EU, UN, and Russia now joined by the US is meant to pressure Israel into compromise with the heathen, Islamic, Arab, Palestinians over the Holy Land. This "Road Map" clearly indicates the gentile world has chosen which side it has taken in the battle between the Bible and the Koran. The gentiles are doing everything possible to preserve the Koran, and keep the Bible an inert book of un-kept promises to the Jewish people. This generation does not want the LORD Jesus Christ to return. They would rather face a global Islamic campaign then the righteous rule by the God of the Bible.
The Apostate Christian Church does not want a Jewish Messiah to sit on the throne in the coming Jewish Temple. They want a Jew rejecting, gentile exalting, Jesus to rule. A turn the other cheek to sin example of love who wins the world to his way of thinking by smiling all the time. A ruler who will put gentile Christians in charge of the Holy Land, Jerusalem, and the coming Temple. They do not want the coming again LORD Jesus Christ as described in the Bible who will rule with a rod of iron. They reject the wrath of the Lamb!
The present Jewish politicians do not want to change. The God of the Bible demands a circumcised heart for every Jew who will enter into the coming Kingdom. There will be no pompous politicians running Israel when the righteous Messiah takes His rightful place on the Throne of King David.
Are you trusting in this Christ for your salvation? Only He bears the anointing of all the titles bestowed. Only He has the power to save. Only He can change the heart to understand, and seek true Biblical righteousness. This generation has presented the world with many christs, but only this Biblical Christ has the power to accomplish the Biblical plan for the Holy Land, Jerusalem, and the Temple Mount!

G8 launches Mid-East reform plan
World leaders at the G8 summit endorsed a watered-down version of a US proposal on democratic and economic reforms in the Middle East and North Africa.
The leaders, meeting in the US state of Georgia, said the reforms should be accompanied by support for a settlement in the Palestinian-Israeli conflict.
President Bush's original plan was seen by the Arab leaders as an attempt to impose American values on their region.
On Thursday, the summit focus shifts to Africa, discussing debt relief.
The G8 leaders also have plans to train and equip more than 50,000 peacekeepers over the next five years, particularly for deployment in Africa.
US officials said the initiative had grown out of African requests for assistance in ending the civil wars plaguing the continent.
The leaders of the UK, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Russia and the US said that ending the Palestinian-Israeli conflict was a priority, but should not be used as an excuse for not seeking reform.
"Our support for reform in the region will go hand in hand with our support for a just, comprehensive and lasting settlement to the Arab-Israeli conflict," the statement said.
The BBC's Jill McGivering in Georgia says earlier drafts of the statement originating from Washington made no mention of the importance of the conflict and proved highly controversial in the Arab world and Europe, and the inclusion will make it more palatable to critics.
And in an attempt to deflect criticism from some Arab leaders, the statement noted that the reform should not and could not be imposed from outside.
The big news out of the G-8 summit is the European endorsement of the new Iraqi government, but the real news is the inclusion of gentile plans for settling the Middle East War including plans to settle the African Wars. God has His own plans for both North Africa, and the Middle East as already written in the Bible. Now we will find out which plans will be effected?
The Middle East is heading for a phony peace guaranteed by the gentile powers. The Jews of Israel will put their trust in the gentiles rather then the God of their fathers. It will be a lesson for all Jews to remember throughout the Great Tribulation. The Bible describes in Ezekiel 38 & 39 a three pronged Islamic Invasion of Israel with Libya and Cush (North Africa) comprising the Southern prong. The gentile guarantees prove ineffective as the Western World of gentile powers sit on their hands when Islam invades. I suspect Israel will either give up their nuclear deterrents, or turn over control to the gentiles. It appears the destruction of the Islamic invaders on the mountains and fields of Israel is a clear act of God rather then an Israeli military victory.
Every generation of powerful men always think they are in control of their destinies, but God always proves them wrong. It will be no different for this generation of G-8 diplomats. Each has his own plan for the future, but only the Biblical future will become reality.
The Biblical future for you is as clearly revealed in the Bible. It is either eternal life in heaven, or hell. There are no other options. We come into this world condemned already.
18 He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.
19 And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.
The whole New Testament is the record that the light has come. Evil men hate the Bible because it means their inexcusable condemnation. The Bible said the Jews would come back to the Holy Land as can't be denied by this generation. Friend, are you "born again?" Is your heart circumcised? Or, do you remain unrepentant in condemnation? An unrepentant generation is moving toward Armageddon. You must separate yourself from them by coming to the Biblical Christ, or eternal condemnation will be your future!

Five Palestinian suicide bombings have been thwarted since the start of May, and 60 since the beginning of the year, Israeli security officials said Thursday. They were unable to divulge details, as the suspects are still being interrogated by Israeli intelligence, according to The Jerusalem Post.
Among three wanted Hamas terrorists captured by IDF forces on Thursday in a sweep through Ramallah was a Palestinian fugitive nabbed on his way to the altar. Dozens of soldiers in jeeps arrived in the middle of his wedding celebration and carted the groom off along with several other suspects, reports Ma’ariv. Another Hamas detainee was Ramzi Barash, who was involved in the murder of Gadi Rajwan at the Atarot industrial zone in February 2002.
The Palestinian Legislative Council on Thursday called for a criminal probe into charges that four Palestinian companies have been importing cement from Egypt on behalf of Israeli contractors to help build the security fence and new houses in Jewish settlements in the territories. A parliamentary commission of inquiry has implicated Palestinian Authority Economic Minister Maher Masri, among other PA cabinet ministers and senior PA officials, in the cement scandal, calling it a “political crime.” The commission's report, however, made no reference to the Al-Quds Cement Factory in Abu Dis, which also was accused of supplying construction material for the security fence and settlements. The factory is co-owned by the family of PA Prime Minister Ahmed Qurei.
IAEA UNEARTHS SIGNS OF HUGE IRAN NUKE PROGRAM
The UN nuclear watchdog has found indications Iran wanted to equip thousands of uranium enrichment centrifuges, enough to produce bomb-grade material for several warheads per year, diplomatic sources told Reuters Thursday.
The findings added further proof to the position of the United States that Iran's purported civilian nuclear program is a front for developing an atom bomb.
At a closed-door meeting on Iran, a senior inspector from the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) told the agency's governing board a private Iranian company had expressed interest in "tens of thousands" of magnets for advanced P-2 centrifuges from a European intermediary, said a diplomat who attended.
The IAEA said last week in its latest report on Iran that the company had expressed interest in 4,000 magnets from a European intermediary -- enough for 2,000 centrifuges -- and had added it might buy in "higher numbers" to get a lower price.
Iran said it only bought 150 sample magnets from an Asian firm. But one diplomat told Reuters "tens of thousands" meant the Iranian firm was considering buying at least 20,000 more.
Since two magnets are required for a single centrifuge, which purifies uranium for use as fuel for power plants or weapons by spinning at supersonic speeds, this would have been enough for at least 10,000 P-2 centrifuges, diplomats said.
"This could produce a significant amount of weapons grade uranium," said one diplomat, adding that it would be enough for at least several nuclear warheads a year.
The IAEA's other major unanswered question concerns traces of enriched uranium found on domestic and imported centrifuge parts. The Iranians have said the traces were all due to contaminated centrifuge parts purchased from Pakistan, though the IAEA no longer finds this explanation plausible.
The hand of God can be recognized by those who are willing to look. The animalistic Palestinians are confounded that their best laid plans fail. Meanwhile, the plans laid for the wicked wild animals are successful. Again, we see the best the Islamic Palestinians are willing to let into leadership are goons and crooks who have no more concern for the people they are suppose to represent as they have for their sworn enemies. Money and power are the only concerns of the Islamic Palestinian leadership. Yet, these are the characters that the gentile world would give a State in the middle of the Holy Land. Political corruption is not limited to the Palestinians, but they have managed to lift it to new highs. The world chooses these kinds of evil people over the righteousness represented in the Bible. No greater defamation could be introduced to the "Holy Land" then what this generation intends to do with the Palestinians!
Islamic Iran was caught in a lie. They want the Islamic bomb to use against Israel, and will do whatever it takes. They know the Jews would never build their Temple on the Temple Mount with an Islamic bomb aimed at Tel-Aviv. I fully expect the Middle East will be declared nuclear free as part of the future phony gentile peace plan. Islam knows this would be to their advantage. The numbers of Islamic fanatics could not be countered by the number of Jews living in the Holy Land through conventional means. It is the Israeli nuclear deterrent that has countered the Arab numbers up to now.
It seems the secular Jewish political system has finally deteriorated to the point where this critical deterrent would be put on the bargaining table for a phony peace. It will open the door for Iran to be the Eastern prong of the three pronged Islamic invasion of Israel coming in the latter years. The time is very short for these Biblical prophecies to come to fruition. Are you trusting in the Biblical Christ as the only way for a personal peaceful conclusion for your life? The horrors of the Great Tribulation are quickly approaching this evil generation. Be certain you are trusting the Biblical Christ.

Hamas: Attacks against
Israel will continue after Gaza pullout
By News Agencies
GAZA CITY - The Islamic militant group Hamas will continue attacks against Israelis, despite plans to withdraw settlements and military bases from the Gaza Strip, a top Hamas leader in Gaza said Saturday.
"We do not trust the Israelis and we do not trust that the Israelis are going to withdraw from Gaza while they are speaking of controlling the sea and the air. Until the occupation completely ends, our resistance will continue," Mahmoud A-Zahar said.
"Evacuating the Gaza Strip does not mean the end of the Israeli occupation, therefore, we need answers regarding the issue of prisoners, borders, water resources, airspace and economic trade as soon as possible," he added.
"The only guarantee we can give so far is the continuation of the resistance," he said.
A-Zahar's comments came as Egyptian officials worked on an agreement for maintaining security in Gaza, Hamas' stronghold, in the wake of the planned pullback.
Egypt has offered to send security advisers to Gaza to help train and equip Palestinian forces, but A-Zahar said he rejected the proffered assistance.
"We are against any sort of commitment to any security steps on any side," A-Zahar told reporters in Gaza City. "We are still in the resistance ... to free our land from the occupation."
However, A-Zahar later said Hamas leaders abroad were expected to begin talks with Egyptian officials within several days.
Al-Zahar spoke before a meeting with Palestinian Authority Prime Minister Ahmed Qureia, who made a rare trip to Gaza to meet with the heads of the various Palestinian security branches and members of Palestinian political and militant groups.
It was al-Zahar's first public appearance since the funeral of Hamas' Gaza leader Abdel Aziz Rantisi, who was assassinated by Israel in April. Al-Zahar is one of Hamas' top leaders in Gaza. Many Hamas leaders have gone into hiding since then, though it is considered unlikely Israel would target Hamas leaders during a meeting with Qureia.
Prime Minister Ariel Sharon's cabinet approved a plan Sunday to evacuate settlements and soldiers from the volatile coastal strip by the end of 2005. Under the plan, Israel would maintain control of Gaza's coast, airspace and border with Egypt.
Al-Zahar said that the continued Israeli presence was unacceptable.
He did leave open the possibility that Hamas, which rejects the existence of Israel and hopes to replace it with an Islamic state, could change its position.
"When we hear something concrete, about full sovereignty, we will think about what is proposed to us," he said. "At this moment, our position stands firm. Our endeavor is a liberation endeavor, and if this liberation is not a full and comprehensive one, our endeavor will continue."
In addition to sending security advisers to Gaza, Egypt intends to increase the number of troops on its side of the border with Gaza and to help build new police stations and jails in the territory.
Egypt has also demanded Palestinian Authority Chairman Yasser Arafat reorganize the nearly one dozen Palestinian security forces into three branches and give up much of his control over them.
Al-Zahar also warned Arab leaders not to cooperate with U.S. President George Bush, and called on them all to reject his proposals for reform in the Arab world.
Nothing has changed, and nothing will change with an Israeli pullout from the Gaza. The Islamic, Arab, Palestinians will never be satisfied until all the Jews of Israel are subdued or dead. A mass of shoulder mounted anti-tank missiles are hidden in the Egyptian desert awaiting delivery to the Gaza. These are the weapons used so effectively against American forces in Iraq. Iran supplied them, but Israel has so far been able to close the boarder between Egypt and the Palestinians. Corrupted politics based on false promises is how the Palestinians intend to arm themselves with this new weaponry. Hamas and the PLO meet using world pressure on Israel to play the game of killing Jews. They know the gentile world protects them in their animalistic terror attacks on the Jewish civilian population.
The withdrawal plan of Sharon has been exposed as a foolish plan, and yet the proud Sharon pushes on. He allows the gentile quartet to influence his decisions. He bulls his way through all opposition, and is now finding the liberal labor party are his strongest supporters concerning withdrawal from all the Holy Land occupied since the 1967 Six Day War. The Land means nothing to the liberal Jews who only want a humanistic good life with no obligations of strict obedience to the God of the Bible. It will take seven years of great tribulation for these Jews to be broken. The hard uncircumcised heart is still not beyond the tender touch of the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. All the patriarchs had to be broken before they were ready to submit. A stiff-necked people are not beyond the reach of the God of the Bible. His record in both Old sand New Testaments is that of breaking hardened hearts, and comforting the humbled afterward.
What a difference between the God of the Bible, and Allah of the Koran! It is the God of the Bible who continues to seek after those who rebel against His holiness. It is only the God of the Bible who promises He will be persistent to change the heart of even the stiff-necked.

PM Sharon Gives Orders To Hasten Evacuation
18:57 Jun 13, '04 / 24 Sivan 5764
"I have given orders to begin the work immediately and without delay," Prime Minister Ariel Sharon opened the Cabinet meeting today, "in order to meet the timetable we have set, namely, the completion of the evacuation by 2005."
Sharon also said that last week's Cabinet decision approving the disengagement/expulsion plan also included the approval of several committees working to advance the retreat.
The Cabinet is expected to approve today the request of Welfare Minister Zevulun Orlev (National Religious Party) to grant him some of the functions filled by resigned party leader Minister Effie Eitam. Eitam was a member of the mini-security cabinet and the ministerial committee for legislation.
The tension between Eitam and Orlev continues, on the backdrop of Eitam's unilateral resignation from the government last week. Eitam said he could not continue to be part of a government that has decided to uproot Jewish towns - but he was unable to convince the rest of his party to quit the coalition. Orlev is of the opinion that as long as the evacuation has not begun, the NRP must remain to "fight from within." MK Yitzchak Levy, who agrees with Eitam and who resigned his Deputy Ministerial position, says that the NRP cannot effectively do that, because "as soon as matters come to a critical vote in the Cabinet, Sharon will throw us out and replace us with Labor."
Of the 6 MKs of the NRP, Orlev is supported mainly by Sha'ul Yahalom, with Gila Finkelstein and Nissan Slomiansky also on their side but leaning towards quitting. Finkelstein said on Friday that among her top concerns is to maintain party unity, and that Eitam should not have made his decision to resign on his own. "It could even be that we will quit [this] week if we see that the evacuation is actually beginning," she told Arutz-7's Yosef Meiri on Friday.
Today's announcement by Sharon is merely the latest indication that the wheel of evacuation has actually begun rolling. All government-funded building has been stopped in Gaza, the Erez Industrial Zone is on its way to being closed, a timetable for the evacuation/expulsion has been released, and Gush Katif residents report that the government has begun "to put security pressure on us as well, partially removing soldiers from roadblocks and from the main roads." Arutz-7's calls to Orlev's spokesmen over the past few days have not yet been returned.
The six MKs of the NRP are scheduled to meet tomorrow afternoon for their weekly Knesset faction meeting. A spokesperson for MK Levy told Arutz-7 that on the agenda is the question of how to vote in tomorrow's no-confidence motion against the government. The required 61 MKs necessary to topple the government will not be attained in any event, as Labor has promised to not to vote in favor of the motion.
The wheel is defiantly turning to force the independent fundamental Jewish settlers out of the Gaza, and then Judah and Samaria. It is one man who has engaged this plan loved by the liberal Jews (Labor Party), loved by the gentiles (Russia, EU, UN, USA), loved by the entire Islamic world, but hated by the God of the Bible. The wicked, forward hearted, people of this generation are exerting their power over the Holy Land. They demand the God of the Bible grant freedom of religion by compromising with the animalistic, heathen, Islamic, Arab, Palestinians over the administration of the Holy Land, Jerusalem, and the Temple Mount.
This may well bring about Civil War to Israel? The passions are rising as this Liberal plot is being activated. I only wonder how far opposition to the wicked Liberal plans for the future of the Holy Land will go? I watch the Evangelical Church of today so rich and in need of nothing slumber away without a peep about the evil "Road Map" pressuring Sharon into action.
The lines of battle are most clear before this generation. God is forcing this generation to get off the fence, and choose which side it will take. The Holy Land is the instrument God is using to force this generation to chose! Which side have you chosen? The fence is no longer an option. Do you stand for freedom of religion (freedom to sin against the God of the Bible), or do you stand on the Bible? Do you stand with Christ, and only one way to be saved which excludes all religions? Do you stand on the Biblical prayer "Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done!" Or, are you blind to who the enemies of God are in this generation? Have you chosen compromise over separation unto holiness? The choice is yours. Holiness and righteousness is coming to the Holy Land, Jerusalem, and the Temple Mount. On which side do you stand?

Settlers gather strength for 'apocalyptic showdown'
By MATTHEW GUTMAN
The Council of Jewish Communities of Judea, Samaria, and the Gaza Strip on Sunday billed the evacuation of settlements under Prime Minister Ariel Sharon's plan for unilateral disengagement an apocalyptic showdown, as it set the stage for what movement leaders called the fight for its life.
August 14, 2005, Gaza's Gush Katif bloc of settlements alerted reporters Sunday, "is the last day of the existence of Jews in Gush Katif. It also happens to be the Ninth of Av, the day of the destruction of the First and the Second Temples and the expulsion of the Jews from Spain."
The message was hammered home at a 1,000-person rally in Gush Katif Sunday night, with National Religious Party chairman Effi Eitam and council chairman Benzi Lieberman lambasting the NRP's continued presence in a government that would evacuate Jewish settlements.
The council is deciding on a new strategy to throw thousands of dedicated volunteers into torpedoing Sharon's plan for taking down Jewish settlements in the 340 sq. km. strip. Its first order of business is toppling Sharon, said settlement leaders and the NRP's rabbis and. ...
The council is an old hand at political activism, a fact that greets visitors to the group's Jerusalem offices. Banners, leaflets, and blunt slogans, like "Uprooting settlements, a victory for terrorism," litter the basement offices' cramped lobby. The offices are modest for a political machine with such power: several cramped rooms, primarily adorned with the council's own propaganda posters.
In his little office, Bratt describes his final method for victory. "We are having babies at a much higher rate than the rest of the country. The national-religious camp is growing at such a fast rate that in 15-20 years there will be no choice for Israelis."
But the key, observed Bratt, is installing a prime minister who possesses "the principles and ethical code of the Land of Israel, rather than pure pragmatism."
It is not a matter of increasing the numbers, but just the opposite! The attitude that we will out-propagate our detractors is foolish. I doubt the settlers think much of such statements. It is rather difficult to get someone to speak for the settlers because they are so independent. There is no unifying entity that speaks for them other then the God of the Bible. The independent fundamental Jewish settlers are a conglomerate of differing social, and even religious groups who have but one common denominator. They all feel called to settle the Holy Land as the Bible tells them they should. It is a heart condition that can't be passed on through genetics. It is a calling that can only be explained on a spiritual level. The dedication of their conviction is being tested. It is not a democratic exercise because the majority are polarized against them. It is more like Gideon determining what part of the disadvantaged minority is really worthy to experience the coming victorious miracle from God. The Jews are going to gain absolute sovereignty over all the Holy Land, Jerusalem, and the Temple Mount. It will be a miracle provided by the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob for just a remnant. It will demonstrate that human numbers are not important, but the truth and righteousness of God is what really counts when it comes to the Holy Land! Islam may have its billion against the lesser Jewish millions, but victory in the Holy Land will not be determined by numbers. The greater gentile world is also polarized against the coming Jewish Kingdom, but Armageddon is the Biblical answer to counter the numberless hordes of human rebels.
It was only a small remnant that survived the end of Noah's dispensation. God has recorded His actions so there can't be a misunderstanding of how He deals with a generation in rebellion. Today, the Biblical Kingdom is coming to the Holy Land, Jerusalem, and the Temple Mount. Islam is the first that must step aside, or perish! Next, will be the world of the gentiles. The Bible is clear the times of the gentiles will end! A remnant will survive that will be mostly Jews who will establish the Kingdom! This present generation of rebels are doomed should they refuse to step aside, for the future plan, for the Holy Land, by the God of the Bible.
The LORD Jesus Christ is coming again. This time He will not be the suffering servant, but the conquering King! A rod of righteous iron will be His scepter. His Kingdom will be a Holy Kingdom without spot or blemish. Sin filled humans will be forced to submit, or perish! Only circumcised hearts will desire such standards be applied to their lives. Only humbled repentant citizens will fit into such a religious/governmental 1000 year Kingdom. It will be the last dispensation, as recorded in the Bible. The lion will lay down with the lamb as all nature will respond to the righteous rule of Christ as the King of the Jews. This is the Biblical Christ, and trust in the false christs of today's Apostate Christianity is doomed to fail. It is only a remnant that gain the victory at the end of any dispensation. Where are you? Have you separated from the crowd? Are you faithfully standing with the Biblical Christ? Do you long for His Kingdom of righteousness, or do you loath such puritanical rule that removes all freedom to sin? Are you praying: "Thy Kingdom Come, Thy will be done!"
Only Christ can give such high desires to the beasts of this generation. Be certain you have not been seduced into trusting a false christ of the apostates who will be left behind. Won't you come to the Biblical Christ right now? Only He can change your heart! Only He can lead you to correct Biblical, doctrinal truth.

MASSING TROOPS ON IRAQI BORDER
A Saudi newspaper reported Tuesday that Iran is massing troops on the Iraqi border. The Al-Sharq al-Awsat daily quoted "reliable Iraqi sources" as saying, "Iran moved part of its regular military forces towards the Iraqi border in the southern sector at a time its military intelligence agents were operating inside Iraqi territory". The paper claims the build-up is either part of Iranian preparations to invade Iraq after US forces leave or a move to pressure the UN into seeking a compromise that would allow Tehran to continue developing its nuclear weapons program.
FREQUENT FREELANCER – Labor party chairman and opposition leader Shimon Peres confirmed in an interview with Israel Radio on Tuesday that he has been holding renewed contacts with Palestinian Authority Prime Minister Ahmed Qureia (Abu Ala) aimed at reviving an interim peace deal the two negotiated nearly three years ago. Palestinian sources were quoted as saying the recent contacts had the approval of Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon, but both his office and Peres denied those claims. The Peres-Abu Ala understanding was secretly concluded in Rome in late 2001, proposing a two-state solution based on the pre-1967 borders. The document first called for establishing a temporary Palestinian state, a cessation of all terror attacks, a partial Israeli withdrawal and the launching of permanent status talks.
KARNI CHAOS – Alert IDF troops thwarted a car-bomb attack on the Karni-Netzarim corridor in the Gaza Strip on Tuesday. When a car refused to stop as it approached an IDF position, soldiers opened fire. The car rammed against a sand embankment and moments later exploded, apparently loaded with explosives. The foiled car bomb attack was the third of its kind in the past two months against Israeli targets in Gaza. Meanwhile, the head of IDF intelligence told the Knesset yesterday that a terror plot featuring six suicide bombers planning to blow up simultaneously at the same Karni crossing was foiled two weeks ago. All six bombers were captured, adding to the 72 suicide bombings foiled by Israel so far this year.
BALATA BLAST – Three Palestinian terrorists, one a local Fatah militia commander, were killed late Monday night in an IDF missile strike on their car in Balata refugee camp in Nablus. The camp is a stronghold of the Fatah-linked Al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigades. One of the dead was considered the successor of two previously killed Islamic Jihad militia leaders in Nablus. All three were wanted for previous involvement in terror attacks and had avoided recent arrest attempts.
PROUD PARENTS – Threats by elements of the al-Aksa Martyrs Brigades to break away from the Fatah movement have forced the Fatah Central Council to form a special committee to study their demands, marking the first time Yasser Arafat’s faction has openly acknowledged its patronage of the terror militia. Al-Aksa militia commanders have accused the Fatah leadership of corruption and of stopping their salaries to force them to abandon the intifada. One militia leader said the armed group was forced to suspend attacks against Israel when payments stopped coming. Arafat convened an emergency Council session on Sunday night to deal with the crisis and has offered to absorb militia members into the Palestinian security services.
DRONE ENVY – Israel’s advanced expertise with unmanned military aircraft has drawn the attention of even the French, with reports indicating Israel and France are poised to sign a $150-200 million deal involving Israeli drones. The expected agreement is being pegged as the largest arms deal between the two countries since France imposed an arms embargo on Israel just prior to the 1967 Six-Day War. The pact will allow Israel Aircraft Industries (IAI) to sell expertise for the manufacture of drones to a consortium of French defense contractors. Several other countries that otherwise have chilly diplomatic relations with Jerusalem are also looking into securing Israeli drones. The IAI has developed a vanguard of drones with real-time battlefield surveillance capabilities that can also serve as platforms for launching a variety of advanced missile systems.
It seems very obvious that the withdrawal of the Jewish settlements from the Gaza is only going to have horrific negative effects. The Islamic terrorists are emboldened to grab control of the Gaza at the first opportunity. They are not being drawn to peace, but rather salivating over how they can better torture Jews from this gift being given them by the secular Jewish politicians. It is mostly the bleeding heart liberals who follow the theology that mankind is good who envision that catering to the terrorists will bring about good. They are blind to the truth that all the hate from cradle to grave propagated to this generation of Islamic, Arab, Palestinians can't be forgotten, or dismissed because of such a foolish act. Thankfully, there are Jews who take the reality of Islamic hate to heart. They take the torturous intents of the terrorists to their own front door. An IDF missile is the only greeting that a wild animal devoid of conscience can understand.
The gentile world continues to offer only one peace plan to the Jewish politicians. The forever establishment of a heathen, terrorist State in the middle of the Holy Land. This proposal takes foolishness to new vistas of deceitfulness. The gentiles put an umbrella of protection around Arafat because he represents the leadership they must support for such a terrorist State to be established. The whole world knows the ties between Arafat, and the terrorists! It is no surprise that he would put the worst of them on his payroll! Who is so foolish as to believe that by changing their titles to security forces that this will change their hate, and torturous intents toward the Jews? Only the bleeding hearts with their faulty concepts of reality!
Iran is the most relevant news item today. They flex their power in preparation for the end as already revealed by the God of the Bible. Old Persia was the second great gentile power after Babylon when the times of the gentiles began. The destruction of the First Jewish Temple was the official Biblical begriming of this gentile age which is predicted to end with the establishment of another Jewish Kingdom, and Temple that will be perfect. Another third Jewish Temple is predicted in the Bible to be built on the Temple Mount. Ezekiel's Temple of Ezekiel 40 - 48 (also Rev 11)! Before this Temple can be built Ezekiel 38 & 39 must take place. The Islamic Invasion of Israel in a three pronged attack. God utterly destroys the invaders, and Islam will be cast onto the dung heap of human history as just another of the many anti-Bible religions. Islamic influence over the Middle East will end forever. The door will open for the Jews to build their Temple on the Temple Mount!
Friend, I pray you are ready? Jesus Christ is coming again to the Holy Land, Jerusalem, and the Temple Mount! Won't you humbly submit to His irresistible power? Won't you ask Christ to be your Savior? You must go to Him alone! You must plead His sacrificial cleansing blood be applied to your sins! Do it now before it is too late.

Two Three-Pronged Major Attacks Thwarted
18:23 Jun 16, '04 / 27 Sivan 5764
Arutz-7 correspondent Kobi Finkler reports that the security establishment is in a minor uproar over the discovery of a six-man, three-pronged terrorist attack in the works.
This is the second such plot thwarted in the past several days.
IDF Intelligence Chief Gen. Aharon Ze'evi-Farkash told the Knesset Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee yesterday that four terrorists were arrested two weeks ago as they tried to exit Gaza and perpetrate the attack. Finkler reports that, according to additional details supplied in a GSS briefing today, two Israeli-Arabs were to meet up with the four, and together they were to perpetrate a three-pronged mega-attack. It was to begin with a carbomb, continue with a suicide bomber exploding himself amidst the medical and rescue personnel who would have arrived on the scene, and end with a round of shooting and grenades at the ever-increasing crowd. The arrests occurred two weeks ago, and the attack was planned for "somewhere within the Green Line." The investigation continues, and no further information is expected to be released before the end of the week.
Just three days ago, Defense Minister Sha'ul Mofaz told his Cabinet colleagues of a different attack that was to be perpetrated in Gaza - also involving a car bomb, shooting, grenades and a suicide bomber. This attack, too, was thwarted in time.
Several terrorist attacks occurred this morning, including shootings in southern Gaza and near Hevron, with no injuries and, in one case, minor damage to an Israeli car. At least one person was lightly injured this afternoon in rock-throwing attack emanating from the Arab village of Sinjel, south of Shilo in southern Shomron.
These two three pronged attacks by the Islamic, Arab, Palestinians were not successful. However, the idea of three pronged attacks is now firmly entered into the minds of the Islamic terrorists. They know single attacks do not cause the amount of pain they desire to inflict. Three pronged attacks hitting in succession together triple the impact of what any three single attacks would accomplish. The Islamic terrorists have realized they reached the maximum devastation that can be attained by conventional means in attacking the Jewish civilian population. Weapons of greater potential are not in their grasp. What they can do is increase the number of suicide killers at any one time, and in this way create greater pain on their victims. Three seems the number that satisfies them.
It now is no surprise that three is also the number that satisfies the invaders of Israel in Ezekiel 38 & 39. Again, the maximum devastation to the Jews is all that will satisfy. Absolute ethnic cleansing of all Jews from the Holy Land now unilaterally claimed by Islam is the intent of such a plan. The invaders come from the North, South, and East. The plan is to put the backs of the Jews toward the Mediterranean Sea. There will be no escape route. Every single Jew living in Israel will be targeted for death with this master three pronged attack plan. The final solution that Hitler was never able to totally implement will be the same revived plan by Islam as indicated in Ezekiel 38 & 39.
The plan fails as miserably as the recent Islamic, Arab, Palestinian plans have done! Ezekiel 39 records the end of Islamic influence forever over the Holy Land! The invaders are destroyed in the mountains, and on the fields of the Holy Land. It is the first time since the days of the Old Testament when the fierce wrath of God is physically, and most certainly manifested against His enemies. It will not be a military victory as God disposed of Hitler, but fire and brimstone, consuming plague, confused self destruction that all come upon these wild animalistic invaders in one successive moment. Islam will never recover from such devastation. Islamic opposition to the Jews building Ezekiel's Temple will suddenly become a non-issue! The antichrist, who will be on the scene at this time as the leader of the Western World, will sue for a peace treaty with the Jews of Israel rather then confront them in the light of such a demonstration by the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob! This is the God that the gentile world will reject. True Biblical righteousness and holiness will begin touching many Jews who will experience the circumcision of their hearts. A Biblical Judaism will appear again in the Holy Land acknowledging the Christ of the recently raptured Christian Church is the same anointed Messiah for whom the sages have always taught the Bible as saying was going to come to the Holy Land, Jerusalem, and the Last Jewish Temple. The time is short. Are you saved? Do you know the Biblical Christ as your personal Savior? The whole world is about to know Him, but most are predicted to reject His holiness.

US President Bush Once Again Blocks Embassy Move
14:51 Jun 18, '04 / 29 Sivan 5764
U.S. President Bush has, once again, suspended the relocation of the American embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Israel's capital, Jerusalem. Asserting that US national security will be harmed if he implements the US law requiring the move, Bush signed yet another six-month security waiver.
Congress overwhelmingly approved the Jerusalem Embassy Relocation Act in 1995, mandating that the Embassy be moved from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem by May 1999 and that the US recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital. Former US President Bill Clinton, who promised in both of his presidential campaigns to move the embassy, signed successive six-month security waivers, thus passing on the "hot potato" to his successor.
During the 2000 election campaign Bush pledged that if he was elected, he would "begin the process" of moving the embassy to Jerusalem on his "first day in office." He has not done so, however - though he wrote this week to the Secretary of State, "My Administration remains committed to beginning the process of moving our embassy to Jerusalem."
After the failed Camp David talks in July 2000, Clinton suggested in an interview with Israeli television that he was considering moving the US Embassy to Jerusalem. "I have always wanted to do it. I've always thought it was the right thing to do. But I didn't want to do anything to undermine the peace process ... But it's something that I have taken under review now because of the recent events," Clinton told the Israeli public. In reaction, Hizbullah terror chief Sheikh Hassan Nasrallah threatened the US that he would "turn your embassy into rubble and return your diplomats in coffins."
The Zionist Organization of America (ZOA) has sharply criticized the continued failure to implement the Embassy Relocation Act. "The failure to recognize Jerusalem is a violation of US law and a blatant surrender to Arab terrorist threats," ZOA National President Morton A. Klein said. "At a time when America is engaged in a life-or-death struggle with terrorists worldwide, it is especially important to implement US law on Jerusalem and thereby send a message to terrorists everywhere that America will not capitulate to their blackmail. It is President Bush's refusal to move the embassy which could undermine national security because it encourages terrorists to believe that threats and violence will force the US to change its policies."
There is only one reason why the Jews were allowed a nation of their own during this generation in the Holy Land. It is because the God of the Bible is going to keep His Word as recorded in the Bible. He is going to bring the Kingdom age to the Holy Land, Jerusalem, and the Temple Mount! President Bush joins the gentile resistance to what the God of the Bible is doing today with Jerusalem by continuing to deny acknowledgment to the Jews of their Biblically secured capital. The Six Day War of 1967 gave the Jews sovereignty over the city from the Islamic Jordanians. Today, Jordan wants no part of the city! There is no public outcry that the city be given back to the Jordanians. They just do not want this hot potato! It is the left over Jordanian, Islamic, Arab, Palestinians who who rejecting their former Jordanian nationality have demanded the world give them the Holy Land, and Jerusalem as their capital even though the Jews are the present land owners. The gentile world keeps terrorists like Arafat protected so that leadership to such a flagrant claim can be kept alive.
Secular Jews who would sell their souls for a hedonistic peace support the gentile "Road Map." The value of Jerusalem to them is only what they can get for it. A phony hand shake would do for most. It is a shame that this city which meant so much to Jews of past generations praying faithfully for the restoration of Jerusalem should now have their expectations administered by such a hedonistic, secularized generation.
The value of Jerusalem to the God of the Bible is beyond comprehension. Only those who read the Bible understand the great compassion God has for this single city. This city was destine for fame from the very beginning of time. It was here where God chose that the LORD Jesus Christ was going to sacrifice Himself for the sins of all mankind. This was the eternal plan of God that continues onto eternity future. The great Biblical promise is that Christ is coming again! He is coming to Jerusalem. He will be the one who makes this single city the greatest city of all time as noted in the Bible.
The Jewel of Jerusalem is the Jewish Temple that gives Jerusalem the lead above all other cities. Only one religion will be allowed during the coming Kingdom age. That religion will have the last Jewish Temple at Jerusalem as the center of all worship. It is there that the Messiah/King will sit on His throne! He will administer as the High Priest a perfect world religion. He will also be King of the world administering all government from this same throne. Under His perfect rule, the future of mankind will be determined. It is this great Prophet, Priest, and King who will give Jerusalem the future standing upon which God reveals so much of His passion in the pages of the Bible.
Evil men are doing all they can to stop God from keeping His promises about Jerusalem. Separate yourselves from such during this evil generation. Today is the day that a remnant need stand apart from the crowd, and uphold the Biblical future for Jerusalem!

Powell Calls American's Killing Barbaric
Colin Powell Condemns Beheading of U.S. Hostage by Militants in Saudi Arabia As Barbaric
WASHINGTON June 18, 2004 — Secretary of State Colin Powell on Friday condemned as barbaric the beheading of U.S. hostage Paul Johnson by Islamic militants in Saudi Arabia, and he vowed to redouble American efforts to combat terrorism.
Powell, meeting briefly with reporters, said he could not officially confirm reports of Johnson's death but his words suggested he had no quarrel with the reports.
"If these reports are true about Mr. Johnson, we, of course, totally condemn this action of barbarism, an action which shows what the world is dealing with, with these kinds individuals who behead somebody or murder somebody in cold blood," he said.
Powell described Johnson as an innocent individual who "was just trying to help people and trying to do his job."
If anything, he said Johnson's murder "will cause us and, I'm quite confident, it will cause our Saudi colleagues to redouble our efforts to go after terrorists wherever they are trying to hide."
Who in their right mind would give such barbarians a homeland in the midst of a civilized peace loving community? I do not see a difference between cutting off a man's head, and sending children strapped with explosives into Jewish civilian centers. It is all the same barbaric behavior cultivated within an Islamic culture of hate. It is a mistake to separate the various Islamic hate cultures into individual groups such as Al Quida, Hamas, Fatah, etc. etc. They are all barbarians! Saddam Hussein is most certainly guilty as a leading barbarian of this generation. The tortuous death toll under his rule is astronomical. The Iraqi culture under his dictatorship was a culture of barbarians that needed to be exterminated. Syria should be next on the list.
The 911 attack should never be isolated to just Al Quida! It was an attack by the entire Islamic barbarian culture, and the war on terrorism should include all who partied in the streets at the carnage. There was no greater partying then that done by the Islamic, Arab, Palestinians. This culture should never have been given the gift by the US joining with Russia, the UN, and the EU in their proposal for the "Road Map."
The Christian "born again" remnant of Christianity should be adamant that this "Road Map" plan be scuttled. We should oppose giving the barbarians a State of their own in the Holy Land. We should oppose any attempts to replace Jews with barbarians anywhere within the Holy Land. It is the Bible that predicted the last generation of the true Christian Church would be dominated by a lukewarm culture. The Evangelicals of today have rejected the strict standards of the fundamentalists from the last generation. Today's Evangelicalism has rejected the application of doctrine by the fundamentalists for the sake of unity. Today the Charismatic Pat Robertson is as much an Evangelical as Billy Graham, and together with many others have produced this generation of Evangelicals that God says He will spew from His mouth. Acceptance of the Apostate Roman Catholics is the determining factor in my mind that demonstrates the culture has drifted into doctrinal depravity.
The time is right for dispensational change. This generation of Christians have allowed "born again" be hijacked by the apostates. The growth of the mystical Charismatic movement coattails on Roman Catholic visions of Mary, and phony magic healings rather then seeable Biblical miracles. Those who should have separated all the showman who used "born again" only looked at the numbers rather then the Bible. This culture is now engrained in Christianity as much as the barbarian culture is engrained into Islam. Dispensational change is the only way that the wheat and tares can be separated in Christianity anymore. Dispensational change is the only way the Bible can defeat the lies of the Koran in a lukewarm Christian culture. Evangelical, Charismatic, Roman Catholic are all the same Christian culture that is bringing an end to 2000 years of the New Testament Church. Bible doctrine is at war not with each individually, but with the whole bunch!

KASSAM ROCKET FIRED AT SDEROT
Israel Radio is reporting on Friday that a Kassam rocket that crashed into a home in Sderot at dawn this morning is an advanced Nasser 3 rocket with a longer range and heavier payload than those previously launched by Palestinian terror militias from Gaza. Residents of the neighborhood are calling it a miracle that one was hurt when the missile slammed into the backyard of a house, rendering the dwelling unlivable for now. Israeli officials are calling the use of the rocket an escalation. Also early Friday, Palestinians shot mortar shells and rifles at Israeli civilians and military forces in the Gush Katif bloc of southern Gaza.
BOOM TOWN - Residents and officials in the Israeli Arab town of Umm el-Fahm are praising the security fence for reducing crime and creating an economic boom in their area. Until the fence was completed last August, they told The Jerusalem Post, their city was used as a main entry point into Israel for Palestinian terrorists and thieves from nearby Jenin. Their fellow Arabs from the territories also stole from Umm el-Fahm residents, they claimed. But now crime is down, Israel’s security presence is reduced and people are now shopping locally rather than going to Jenin for cheaper goods. As a result, new businesses are flourishing and even leaders of the radical Islamic Movement in Israel admit the security fence has significantly improved their lives.
DASHING BRITS – Three British construction workers helping to rebuild the Jenin refugee camp have fled for their lives after shots were fired at their headquarters earlier this month, according to The London Times on Thursday. The three men said construction teams working on beautiful new homes for camp residents paid for with United Arab Emirates money were constantly intimidated and threatened by certain local elements who were apparently afraid of losing their refugee status in the eyes of the world. Some 500 new homes were being built to European standards, featuring Italian marble kitchen tops and ceramic tiles. UNRWA has stopped all work on the Jenin project, meant to replace homes destroyed in fighting between Palestinian terror militias and IDF troops two years ago.
The Islamic, Arab, Palestinian response to the foolish Israeli withdrawal plan is only to escalate their terrorism. It is now clear any Jewish withdrawal from Gaza, and Judah and Samaria will not bring the area closer to peace. It is just the opposite that is happening. The terrorists feel they are winning, and so only increase their efforts to torture the Jews. The things that are working on the ground are things like building the security fence. It is this plan that the bleeding hearts of the world oppose? It is clear the peace loving Arabs benefit from the fence while the hateful terrorists along with their criminal cohorts are stopped. Yet, the politics of the bleeding hearts refuse to acknowledge reality, and stick with their failed philosophy. Another reality shock proves that by pouring money into the terrorist beds will not buy their pacification. The hate for Jews is so imbedded that Italian marble toilets will never change the spots on the leopard. These hate filled Arab, Palestinians would rather have their children suffer then to forego any compromise with the Jews. This culture has only one reason for life, and that is to torture and kill Jews. Their refugee status gives them credibility in a foolish world, and no amount of money will ever be allowed to create a change in the squallier that they willing endure. They chose squallier and killing Jews over opulence and no excuse to kill Jews. The Islamic, Arab, Palestinian, culture will never be bought off. They chose criminals to lead them in their hate filled desires to kill the Jews. This culture must be expelled from the Holy Land before Biblical righteousness can come to planet earth. God is about to judge the entire Islamic world. Death and destruction is what the Bible says will be their fate. Evil hearts beyond repentance are ripe for judgment. It is this generation of Islam that meets the criteria. It will be the God of the Bible who will destroy them.
Our Christian responsibility in such a world environment is only to be right with God. We need to exemplify our support for the written Word. We need to support the Bible alone over the Koran, or any other book that would pervert the authority of God. We need to tell the world that the God of the Bible, and the god Allah of the Koran are not the same! We must acknowledge that God is changing dispensations, and the evidence that this is the generation is that the Jews are back in the Holy Land with their own nation once again. We must proclaim that the Kingdom of heaven is coming to the Holy Land, Jerusalem, and the Temple Mount! Jesus Christ is coming again as the King of the Jews! We must not be lukewarm in the battle between the Bible and the Koran. We must support what God is doing with the Jews of Israel as He prepares the world for dispensational change. We must remain right with God at such a time in history! "Out of Zion" must be our message to this generation!

Jordan: Kingdom, PLO in Agreement
15:00 Jun 23, '04 / 4 Tammuz 5764
(IsraelNN.com) Asmaa Khuder, spokeswoman for the
Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan, said
this week that Jordan holds "the same position [as that] of the Palestinian
leadership" regarding the issue of Arab refugees of the 1948 War of
In a press conference Monday, Khuder said that there is coordination between Jordan and the PLO leadership regarding the issue of "refugees".
She explained that the position of PLO leader Yasser Arafat, as expressed to the Israeli daily Haaretz, is not "different in substance" from the Jordanian or accepted Arab position. (Arafat had commented in the newspaper interview that not all of the "refugees", whom he claimed numbered four million, will want to "return" to Israel.)
"The question of the Palestinian refugees and the right of the refugees to return is a right that we officially or the Palestinian leadership can not give up," the Jordanian spokeswoman said, "because it is an individual right for the Palestinian refugees. A right supported by international resolutions."
The Jordanians want to get rid of the Islamic, Arab, Palestinians who fled to Jordan in 1948 when they were told by the Arab League to get out of the way so the joint Arab armies could kill all the Jews. The war went bad for the Arabs, and the Jews won. Jordan kept these refugees in camps of squalor blaming it all on the Jews. Jordan would not allow the refugees to join any part in the government, and when they rebelled the Jordanian army massacred many of them. The world said nothing about this action. The lying Islamic, Arab, Palestinians are always quick to cry massacre whenever the Jews houseclean the terrorists out of Palestinian controlled cities. The United Nations investigates every claim, but so far have not found a single massacre by the Jews of Palestinians. Most certainly nothing like the massacre done to the evil Palestinians by the Jordanians.
These Arab refugees are not nice people. They are taught from cradle to grave to hate Jews. It is the identical teaching that the Palestinian Authority has long subjected the entire Arab culture under their control. These are cultures of hate that encourage their children that the greatest glory of an Islamic Arab is to kill Jews. Imagine 4 million more barbaric, Arab, Palestinians, who have proven themselves to be the dregs of society, who party at each beheading by their fellow barbarians, being imposed on the Holy Land where the God of the Bible is committed to bring in the next Kingdom age. It seems clear to me that the gentiles are doing everything they can to stop the Bible, and the God of the Bible. The Bible talks about peace and righteousness, and the gentiles are intent on enlarging a society that gleefully beheads any who will not bow down to their Allah of the Koran. A society that hates the Jewish heritage of the Bible as no other society on earth. The most amazing thing of all is that this is promoted as a "Road Map" plan for peace? This generation is intent on doing everything possible to support the Palestinians, and restrict the Jews in the Holy Land. It matters not that God is moving in preparation for a perfect Jewish Kingdom of absolute holiness and righteousness. A Kingdom ruled over by the only perfect Jewish Messiah who already sacrificed His own life so His blood could wash away sin, and so sinners could find acceptance before a Holy God. It is certain this generation does not want this Christ to come again as an all powerful, unrelenting, Jewish King.
The Jews hated Christ at His first coming because He was the suffering Savior, and not the all powerful Jewish King they wanted. This entire gentile and Jewish generation hates the idea of the coming again Jewish Christ of the Bible. They do not want Him to come again as the Bible describes Him. A puritanical ruler who wields an iron rod of righteousness to which the whole world must submit or perish. The greatest massacre of all time is when that rod is waved for the first time at His return. It is Armageddon! It is when the entire world is confronted with a one time decision. Will they accept the Biblical Christ, or will they reject Him! The results are already written in the pages of the Bible.
Friend, this is your opportunity to settle what you are personally going to do with Christ. Will you go to Him with all your heart, all your soul, and all your might? Will you ask Him to change your heart? Do you desire to have Him turn you into a puritanical follower of His perfect righteousness? Or, is that Christ not the one you want forcing Himself on your generation? The final decision is coming quickly. It will be in the Valley of Decision! The Valley of Jehoshaphat! This will be the final Armageddon for this generation. Where are the desires of your heart? What decision have you made?

Israel hails House vote on Bush Mideast stance
By Haaretz Service and news agencies
Prime Minister Ariel Sharon's senior side Dov Weisglass Thursday hailed as "one of the most important days in Israel-United States relations" an overwhelming U.S. House of Representatives vote to "strongly endorse" President George W. Bush's April 14 declaration, which effectively rejected key Palestinian demands for an Israeli withdrawal to the pre-1967 war borders and a right of return for Palestinian refugees.
"The House of Representatives, in an astonishing vote of 407 for and nine against, and a few months before elections, when partisan rivalries are naturally at their height, lined up together behind the president in his support of Israel, as expressed in his letter to the prime minister," Weisglass said.
The Senate is expected to ratify the measure by a wide margin later on Thursday.
The resolution also backs Prime Minister Ariel Sharon's disengagement plan. It states that Congress "strongly endorses" the principles laid down by Bush in an April 14 letter to Sharon, including that the stance that it was "unrealistic" to expect Israel to pull back to borders that existed before the 1967 Mideast war because of the large Jewish populations that have settled in contested areas.
The Bush letter also stated that a final status agreement on a Palestinian state must arrange for settling Palestinian refugees in that state, rather than in Israel.
The letter was seen as one of the signal achievements of the many shuttle missions which Weisglass has taken to Washington to lobby for the disengagement plan, which foresees a withdrawal from all Gaza Strip settlements and four West Bank enclaves.
For Israeli officials monitoring the House debate and vote live on the C-Span network, Weisglass said, "To hear these amazing words of support, the friendship with Israel and Israelis - these were hours and hours of nachat," a term connoting both pleasure and pride.
No right of return
"Put simply," said House Majority Leader Tom DeLay, who sponsored the resolution with Democratic Whip Steny Hoyer "Israel must not retreat behind its 1949 borders, and there is no so-called right of return" for refugees.
"The president believes that this plan will make a real contribution toward peace and so do I," Hoyer said. "This plan in my view is a bold historic opportunity to break the deadlock in Israeli-Palestinian relations."
The second part of the resolution, which now goes to the Senate but is not legally binding, supports international efforts to build the will of Palestinians to fight terrorism and prevent the areas from which Israel has withdrawn from posing a threat to the security of Israel.
There was some muted criticism, among Democrats, of the level of administration involvement in the Mideast peace process and the wording of the resolution.
Rep. Nick Rahall, who has complained that past resolutions on the Mideast have been one-sided in favor of Israel, said the language this time was slightly better, but asked "where were the Palestinians in this dialogue? ... Where are the Palestinians involved in the discussions upon the no-return issue?"
Foolish men do make right decisions from time to time, and this is one of those times. The greater issue of an Islamic, Arab, Palestinian State being forever established in the Holy Land continues to be the fly in the ointment. These Palestinians have proven themselves to be the barbarians of this generation. God is forcing dispensational change on planet earth, and these Palestinians have so hardened their hearts to this coming change that they have turned themselves into conscienceless wild animals. They have become barbarians, this last generation of them, because of their hate for the Jews. It is the Jews whom God says will be center in the Kingdom that is coming to the Holy Land, Jerusalem, and the Temple Mount. These Palestinians have sworn most defiantly among all the gentiles that the Biblical future for the Jews will not happen. They say their Koran will replace the Bible, and their Allah will replace Jehovah.
The Christian world strands by nether cold or hot. They only want freedom of religion. To this generation, even the barbaric Palestinians have a right to their barbarism against Jews in the name of Allah. In this generation, freedom of religion means freedom to worship anything but the Biblical God. It is the freedom to sin in the final analyses. The freedom to water down Biblical righteousness and holiness so that tolerance reigns in this sin filled generation.
This vote by congress may well be the last gasp of doing the right thing by a Christian gentile nation. We should stand behind the Jews unequivocally as this generation has seen the rise of anti-Semitism greater then what took place in the 1930's. We should make it clear to the Palestinians that their barbarous behavior though done in the name of Allah, and justified through the Koran is unacceptable as religious, or any other kind of behavior according to the Bible. All who stand on the Bible must oppose the Palestinians who would lock-up the Holy Land forever in heathenistic barbarism.
This generation is on record as putting God to note by 2007 there will be a forever Palestinian State in the Holy Land. This generation is so bold that they are challenging God and the Bible. They plan to replace the Bible with the Palestinians, Allah, and the Koran as the religion of the Holy Land, and force the Jews whom God has brought back to the Holy Land during this generation to live with such neighbors. It is this generation of gentile Christians that would spite in the face of God who will find themselves spewed from His mouth. This generation has willingly forgotten the God of the Bible is a jealous God, and is not going to tolerate such treatment!

U.S. lawmakers: Use Israeli bullets for training
WASHINGTON - Israeli-made bullets bought by the U.S. army to plug a shortfall should be used for training only, not to fight Muslim guerrillas in Iraq and Afghanistan, U.S. lawmakers told army generals on Thursday.
Since the army has other stockpiled ammunition, "by no means, under any circumstances should a round [from Israel] be utilized," said Rep. Neil Abercrombie of Hawaii, the top Democrat on a House of Representatives Armed Services subcommittee with jurisdiction over land forces.
The army contracted with Israel Military Industries in December for $70 million in small-caliber ammunition.
The Israeli firm was one of only two worldwide that could meet U.S. technical specifications and delivery needs, said Brig. Gen. Paul Izzo, the army's program executive officer for ammunition. The other was East Alton, Illinois-based Winchester Ammunition, which also received a $70 million contract.
Although the army should not have to worry about "political correctness," Abercrombie was making a valid point about the propaganda pitfalls of using Israeli rounds in the U.S.-declared war on terror, said Rep. Curt Weldon, the Pennsylvania Republican who chairs the subcommittee on tactical air and land forces.
"There's a sensitivity that I think all of us recognize," Weldon told the army witnesses, including Maj. Gen. Buford Blount, who led the U.S. Third Infantry Division that captured Baghdad in April 2003.
Blount, now the Army's assistant deputy chief of staff, said the Army had sufficient small-caliber ammunition - 5.56mm, 7.62mm and .50 caliber - to conduct current operations in Iraq, Afghanistan and elsewhere.
But taken together with training needs, the United States had strained its production facilities, he testified.
"To fight a major combat operation in another theater will require the army to impose restrictions on training expenditures and to focus current inventory and new production on combat operations," Blount said.
As a result, he said the army hoped to stretch U.S. supplies to supplement the capacity of the government-owned Lake City plant in Independence, Missouri, which currently makes more than 90 percent of U.S. small caliber ammunition.
The Lake City factory, operated by Alliant Techsystems Inc., has nearly quadrupled its production in the past four years. This year, it will produce more than 1.2 billion rounds, Karen Davies, president of the ATK arm that runs it, told the panel. Lake City provided more than 2 billion rounds a year during World War II and Vietnam, she said.
The army's needs will grow to about 1.5 billion to 1.7 billion rounds a year in coming years, Blount said.
"In the near-term, balancing training requirements with current operational needs is a manageable risk-mitigation strategy," he said.
The army does not want to repeat its history of building capacity during wartime "only to dismantle it in peacetime," Blount added.
Here is another example of political correctness being taken to absurdity. It would naturally be the democrats who would raise the issue. Imagine how terrible it must be to the family honor of a terrorist attempting to kill American soldiers if shot dead with a bullet made in Israel? Oh, how sensitive we should be to the terrorist supporters left behind, and I would assume to the terrorist himself. His honor will forever be tarnished because a Jewish bullet sent him to the perverted paradise of the Koran. I suspect once this proposal gets traction the democrats will want to pull out all the unmanned remote planes which use Israeli technology? God forbid we not be sensitive to Islamic feelings in this war on terrorism? How terrible it would be that the world might think we do not uphold freedom of religion for these sensitive Moslems.
I'm glad to see the liberal democrats acknowledge just how great Islamic hate is for the Jews that this issue of Jewish bullets comes to the fore. It shows with whom their sensitivities lie. It is important to see that there is this subtle anti-Semitism ready to explode into full blown hate for the Jews within the American government. I'm sure no survey of black workers in ammunition plants have been brought before congress with the thought of being sensitive to possible shooting of KKK members, or neo-Nazis with such manufactured goods. Only Jewish goods are a commodity worthy of being sensitive about in relations with our Islamic brother gentiles.
I think the whole world is getting sensitive to Jewish bullets. Imagine a righteous star of David being placed on every bullet used by the Millennium Army of the Kingdom Age. Imagine death as the penalty for every pornographer, and every sexual pervert who would dare try to practice their perversions on the citizens of that future age. Imagine puritanical rule where sin is against the Law, and Jesus Christ is the Judge and Jury over every resistant action by sinners. As the coming King, it will be Christ Who will set the standards of the Kingdom, and will have the unlimited power to enforce those standards. Righteousness and holiness during the Kingdom Age will stand, or fall on His ability to enforce His righteous Will on the citizenry of that era. Any who would intend to defy His rule will find only a righteous bullet with their name on it! It is no wonder Jewish bullets put a shiver down the spine of every potential rebel. It is no wonder that today laws are being contemplated to restrict Jewish ammunition! Use it only for practice, but never, never, never let it be used for real!

NEARING DECISION ON FENCE
The International Court of Justice at The Hague said Friday that it will issue its much-anticipated opinion on the legality of Israel’s ‘seam-line’ security fence in two weeks time. Palestinian officials said today they expect the ruling, to be handed down on July 9, will condemn Israel’s erection of the fence as illegal and will demand that it be torn down. But Israeli officials responded that, even though the UN General Assembly asked for an “urgent” advisory opinion last December, the fact that the Court is just now coming to a decision shows the case is not as cut-and-dried as the Palestinians suggest. "The reason why Israel built the fence - the suicide bombers - unfortunately... still exists," Israeli Foreign Ministry spokesman David Saranga said today.
ISRAEL-TURKEY RELATIONS LOSING ALTITUDE
EL AL Flight Ban Latest Hiccup – Israel’s relations with Turkey, its closest strategic ally in the region, continue to nosedive, as the national air carrier El Al was forced to cancel flights to Istanbul on Friday due to an imposed change in security procedures, while a Turkish newspaper reports the country’s foreign minister may be spreading tales about the Mossad.
SYRIA FINGERED AS PART OF KHAN NUCLEAR RING
Damascus Still Home to Terror Groups As Well – Syria is suspected of acquiring nuclear technology and expertise through the black market network operated by rogue Pakistani scientist Abdul Qadeer Khan, reports the Los Angeles Times.
FEWER JEWS – The Jewish population worldwide is approaching zero growth rate, warns a new study to be presented to the Israeli cabinet this Sunday. The study on global Jewry prepared by the Jewish People Policy Institute says the current 2% rate of growth could soon reach zero not only due to declining birth rates, but also because of assimilation, anti-Semitism, and the proliferation of weapons of mass killing in the hands of anti-Jewish and anti-Israeli elements. The JPPI study puts the Jewish population worldwide at 13 million people in 2004, with 5.1 million in Israel and 5.7 million in the US. Other surveys, however, have claimed that the Jewish population of Israel recently surpassed in size the American Jewish community.
This prestigious Hague International Court is the same Court that will rule the Second Coming of the LORD Jesus Christ as illegal. It represents the gentile world legal system, and as such will never recognize the authority of Christ. They will never recognize the authority of His coming Jewish Kingdom. They will never recognize the Biblical condemnation of all who resist this soon coming dispensational change. This Court of the Hague represents this present gentile generation. They pompously, and willingly ignore what the Bible says. The God of the Bible has no influence over these heathen Judges. They sit on pompous seats of worldly authority accountable to none. It is the LORD Jesus Christ who the Bible says will be Prophet, Priest, and King. Who will combine all authority to Himself. It will be this Biblical Christ who will overthrow the Hague in His wrath. It is Christ who will judge the judges, and fill the grave with their dead bodies.
The time is short! Anti-Semitism is greater then it was when the last generation allowed the Holocaust. Should the anti-Semites not finish the final solution, the Jews of this generation will. Assimilation during this Bible ignoring generation is clearly doing more ethnic cleansing then the hated Islamic terrorists. All the numbers coming after zero are negative with the trend of this generation. It should be clear to all that without the Jews the Bible becomes meaningless. Or, those who would replace all future blessings predicted for the Jews with individual denominational Christian Churches, though I know not which one would be the right substitute, have the correct theology. I rather think the Jews will survive long enough for the literal promises to them be fulfilled. I rather think the Denominational heads of these apostate Christian Churches will have their dead bodies tossed in the same grave as the Hague judges. The time is short. This generation meets all the Biblical criteria for the generation that goes to Armageddon.
Only dispensational change can save a remnant out of this willingly ignorant generation. The times of the gentiles is coming to an end, and the Kingdom age is next according to the never changing Bible. It is coming to the Holy Land, Jerusalem, and the Temple Mount. Oh, foolish Christian who thinks his gentile christ will give him victory in this generation - Wake Up! The false christs of this generation are arrayed to deceive. Only the Christ of the Bible can save. Only He is of the never ending Priesthood of Melchizedek. The denominations can make no such claim for their authority. It is only this Jewish Priest to whom you can go for cleansing from sin. It has always been that way according to the Bible, and always will be. Separate yourself from this evil generation before it is too late. Accept only the Biblical Christ as your Savior!

Shechem: Israel Kills
Three Top Terror Leaders
17:11 Jun 27, '04 / 8 Tammuz 5764
Prime Minister Ariel Sharon called the elimination of several senior terrorist leaders - from Hamas, Fatah and Islamic Jihad - on Saturday "a great success in the war on terrorism."
IDF sources report that eight wanted terrorists in the Shechem area were killed by Israeli forces on Saturday, the third day of a counter-terrorism operation in Shechem. Among the terrorist leaders eliminated were Naif Abu Sharah, the commander of the Al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigade of Yasser Arafat's Fatah organization, Faddy Bahti, a commander of the Islamic Jihad, and Jaffer Mitsri, a leader in the Hamas.
Among many other attacks, Abu Sharah behind a suicide bombing in Tel-Aviv, in January 2003, in which 23 civilians were murdered and dozens were injured, and a suicide bombing in November 2002, in which two Israeli civilians were murdered and 30 were injured. His many attempts to dispatch suicide bombers were sometimes funded by the Hizbullah, sometimes by the Palestinian Authority. Islamic Jihad commander Bahti and Hamas leader Mitsri were each responsible for dispatching terrorists and for their organization's respective explosives laboratories in Shechem.
In the counter-terror operation, nine soldiers sustained light and light-to-moderate injuries, apparently from smoke inhalation. The encounter began when an IDF force conducting searches in Shechem opened fire at two gunmen, killing one of them, a senior terrorist of the Fatah Al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigade in Shechem. The second terrorist escaped into a secret hideout under the floor of the house. After calling for those inside the hidden basement to come out, the soldiers hurled in smoke grenades and hand grenades. One of the terrorists fled and was caught, but in a subsequent grenade volley, seven other top wanted terrorists who hid inside were killed.
The curfew imposed on the residents of Shechem four days ago was lifted today.
The accounts of the acts of terror are front page, but you must read the Israeli news for the final act. These front page Islamic warriors always have a back page death. Israel is very good at hunting them down, and executing them. It is truly suicide for the leaders once they reach the Jewish list of terrorists. In this case a bunch of grenades were Judge and Jury. I can only speculate on what went through their minds in those last seconds as they watched the grenades awaited the explosion. I doubt it was perverted sex with 70 sex kittens? I think reality overtook the fairytales they were fed by their religious leaders.
The Bible tells of an old warrior tradition of burying the brave who die in battle with their sword placed under their head. It was meant to be a badge of honor reserved only for those who stood their ground, and would not retreat. Even God allowed for such honor among the uncircumcised who will forever be cast into hell. What I find interesting in Ezekiel is the terrorist hordes of Meshech and Tubal are so buried, but God says of these heathen such honor will never be acknowledged by Him. The only conclusion is that these barbarians were so animalistic in behavior that honorable death, no matter what the circumstances, was not available for them by God's own decree. What was recognized for most would never be acknowledged for the barbarians of Meshech and Tubal.
I do not think myself out of line by proposing this same restriction is being applied by the God of the Bible to the Islamic terrorists of today. They may well be the terror in the land of the living at present, but in death there will be granted no honor by all of heaven to these animalistic indiscriminant killers of Jewish woman and children. The Palestinians may place their swords under their heads in the grave, but the God of the Bible only spits at their record of life. Their eternal souls will forever be condemned to hell where they will abide under the wrath of God. It is only fitting that their death be of no consequence to the world. It certainly is of no consequence to the God of all eternity. They just join the multitudes of all past generations who rejected the God of the Bible. It is hell where they go, and torment forever is their fate. It is Biblical righteous justice at work, and these barbarians have forfeited forever their opportunity for salvation! They also forfeited even the acknowledgment of some sort of honor among the condemned. It is only gnashing of teeth for these latest entries.

U.S. hands over Iraq
2 days early
BAGHDAD (AP) — The U.S.-led coalition transferred sovereignty to an interim Iraqi government two days early Monday in a surprise move that apparently caught insurgents off guard, averting a feared campaign of attacks to sabotage the highly symbolic step toward self-rule
Legal documents transferring sovereignty were handed over by U.S. governor Paul Bremer to chief justice Mahdi al-Mahmood in a small ceremony attended by about a half dozen Iraqi and coalition officials in the heavily guarded Green Zone. Bremer took charge in Iraq about a year ago.
"This is a historical day," Interim Prime Minister Iyad Allawi said during the ceremony. "We feel we are capable of controlling the security situation."
Militants had conducted a campaign of car bombings, kidnappings and other violence that killed hundreds of Iraqis in recent weeks and was designed to disrupt the transfer, announced by the Bush administration late last year. Intially, the Americans were thought to have planned for about one more year of occupation.
Two hours after the ceremony Bremer left Iraq on a U.S. Air Force C-130, said Robert Tappan, an official of the former coalition occupation authority. Bremer was accompanied by coalition spokesman Dan Senor and close members of his staff.
The new interim government was sworn in six hours after the handover ceremony, which Western governments largely hailed as a necessary next step. The Arab world voiced cautious optimism, but maintained calls for the U.S. military to leave the country quickly.
The NATO alliance quickly said it would begin training the Iraqi military, which faces a daunting task in putting down the growing insurgency threatening the country.
It was a surprise, and a stroke of wise diplomacy that has given the sovereignty of Iraq back to the Islamic, mostly Arab, Iraqis. They are now able to fulfill their destiny as the God of the Bible brings dispensational change to this generation. The Iraqis destiny is tied to its capital city much the same as the Jewish destiny of this generation is tied to Jerusalem. It is from Babylon that the Bible reveals the future of man without God will progress. Jerusalem will represent where men submitted to God will dwell. It will be only a remnant, but a victorious remnant. The future of the world from this day forward may well be reduced to "A Tale of Two Cities."
It may seem ridiculous to many that I would say Babylon is about to become the capital of the world! I lived in Butte Montana, and it would seem just as ridiculous for me to say that Butte once controlled the economy of the world. However, it is true. When the world needed copper to wire-up the new inventions brought by the discovery of electricity, it was Butte that controlled the world copper prices. It was Butte, Montana that controlled the economy of the entire world by setting the price of copper. So also is Babylon destine to control the world economy most probably with control of all the oil in the Middle East. The Bible is very clear that the antichrist will control Babylon, and through Babylon take economic control over the entire planet. He will offer mankind wealth untold if they tie their destiny with him. But, only If they accept his 666 number forever attached to their names, and their bodies. The choice for this generation will soon be made clear. It will either be accept the antichrist and survive economically, or reject his lies and trust in the God of the Bible for personal survival in this coming evil era.
Babylon is destine to grow and prosper. Jerusalem is destine to be a stumbling stone to this coming world order. The city of Babylon is destine to survive the coming Islamic destruction after the invasion of Ezekiel 38 & 39. Babylon will break free of all the present worldly religions, and apparently will concentrate on global secularism? That global secularism will feed right into the antichrist's grasp when he turns on all his weakened supporters claiming himself the god of humanism. The god of secularism. The god of merchandise. Babylon is destine to be the capital of the new globalization that will lift the antichrist to power. Iraq will soon be the center of all that is anti- God of the Bible. Only Jerusalem of all the cities on earth will offer an alternative to the antichrist's rule. Only Jerusalem will survive Armageddon! It is Jerusalem, not Babylon where the final victory will reside.

Another Kassam on Sderot; Three Hospitalized
10:10 Jun 29, '04 / 10 Tammuz 5764
Two more Kassam rockets were fired towards the western Negev this morning, and one person sustained moderate wounds. He and two others suffering from shock were transported to Soroka Hospital in Be'er Sheva. One rocket landed in a potato sorting plant in Sderot's industrial zone, east of Gaza, and the second fell two miles away in an open field near Kibbut Erez, north of Gaza.
Just yesterday, exactly 24 hours before this morning's attack, a man and a little boy - originally reported to have been his grandson - were killed in a similar rocket attack on Sderot. A spokesman for the city of Sderot, Yossi Cohen, told Israel Radio yesterday that Prime Minister Sharon's "disengagement" plan from Gaza is turning Sderot into a frontline border town.
One woman told Arutz-7 today, "It's clear that the disengagement plan will simply bring the terrorism that much closer to us, and to other towns as well. What's the point?" In a spirit of patriotism that characterizes Israelis at a time of crisis, she said, "We were thinking of moving to Jerusalem for a few weeks because of the strong heat - but now I certainly can't do that."
Likud MK Ehud Yatom, a member of the Knesset Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee, said, "The Prime Minister is more determined than ever to carry out the disengagement, and every attack like those in Sderot and on the Kisufim outpost [yesterday and the night before] don't interest him at all... I therefore demand of the Prime Minister that he deal with Gaza just like the refugee camp Balata [in Shechem, where IDF forces have operated many times], to expel Arafat, and to stop this disengagement plan that provides new wind for the sails of terrorism."
Former government minister and National Union Party chief Avigdor Lieberman warned, "If the disengagement plan is carried out, Kassam rocket attacks will be the lot of cities from Ashkelon to Ofakim and will become a daily occurrence." Lieberman called on the government, from which he was forced out when he objected to Prime Minister Sharon's plans, to reconsider the unilateral withdrawal.
The Yesha (Judea, Samaria and Gaza communities) Council similarly stated, "After this devastating attack, it is obvious that the IDF Chief of Staff's dire warnings cannot be ignored, and that withdrawal from Gush Katif leads to an invigorated terrorist infrastructure and renewed attacks."
The wild, animalistic, Islamic, Arab, Palestinians again thumb their noses at the civilized world. They are given a peace gift, and even before it is unwrapped just use it to to continue their revengeful torture of the Jews. The plan is not to overthrow Jewish reign, though that would be welcomed. The plan is to forever torture the Jews because the God of the Bible chose them of this generation to be the sovigerns in the Holy Land. Even the secular Jews are angry with the God of the Bible! Sharon does not want the Gaza that God has given the Jewish people. He does not want the Temple Mount, or the Arabic part of Jerusalem. It is too much of a headache to follow the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. Sharon wants the sweet onions of Egypt. His desires are to be chummy with the leaders of the gentile world. Sharon and all the secularized Jews are about to find out the greater headache is not to follow God.
These are Biblically significant times. Babylon is about to emerge as the leading city of the gentile world. Many secularized Jews will follow the temptations for wealth and fame. It will make good business sense to be chummy with Babylon. It will seem foolish to follow God, and go against the tide. Righteousness will be out, and greed will be in as this globalization plan that brings the antichrist to power now comes in earnest. Retreat from the Gaza. Retreat from Judah and Samaria. Retreat from Jerusalem, and most certainly retreat from the Temple Mount is the direction of secularized globalization. A few Jews sacrificed daily to the barbarians is a small price when greed can be filled beyond imagination. The antichrist will make it all sound great to this most foolish generation.
Friend, there are no Cadillac cars for those who humble themselves before the Biblical Christ. The joys of eternal salvation surpass materialism. It is only the foolish who allow worldly lusts to blind them to the brighter heights of righteousness and holiness. This world is soon to be judged. The material wealth that was so lusted after will be nothing but rust, or moth eaten strands of rotted matter. Strive for that which endures forever. There is only one place to start. All must first come in repentant humility to the Biblical Christ. All of this present generation must first be "born again" before salvation can be applied through the shed blood of Christ. We must all first come with all our heart, all our soul, and all our might! Won't you come to the Biblical Christ right now? Just come to Him! Just come!

COURT ORDERS CHANGES TO FENCE ROUTE
Rules that quality of life supercedes security – In a landmark ruling, Israel’s High Court of Justice on Wednesday ordered the re-routing of a 30-kilometer stretch of the security fence northwest of Jerusalem, in order to reduce the humanitarian impact on Palestinians living in the area.
KOSHER KILLING – Bringing back memories of Oslo, the rabbi of the Old City of Jerusalem said Tuesday that anyone who gives away parts of the Land of Israeli to gentiles is open to a "din rodef" - a religious license to kill a fellow Jew. Rabbi Avigdor Neventzal said that although these days it is impossible to issue such a verdict, “it should be known that anyone who wants to give away Israeli land is like a rodef, and certainly land should not be given to idol worshipers.” Finance Minister Benjamin Netanyahu criticized the rabbi's comments. “We are a law-abiding country and if we make difficult choices from a national standpoint, we accept them in a democratic and law-abiding manner.” The late Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin was the subject of a similar debate for signing on to the Oslo peace process.
FRENCH SUPPORT – On a regional visit, French Foreign Minister Michel Barnier expressed support Tuesday for a multinational force in the Gaza Strip after an Israeli withdrawal. Barnier met with Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat yesterday despite calls by Israel and the United States for the Palestinian leader to be shunned. Voicing support for the deployment of "an international presence," including European observers, in the Gaza Strip after the planned pullout, Barnier also said France backed Egypt's security plan for Gaza, which includes the dispatch of Egyptian experts to train Palestinian security forces. This idea was recently criticized by human rights organizations that say Egyptian police tactics are often brutal.
CHURCH GUNMEN - Israel plans to tell the European Union that it will not allow the 13 Palestinian terrorists from the Church of the Nativity standoff to return to Palestinian territories. The 13 were escorted from Bethlehem and divided among several Europeans countries as part of a compromise ending the prolonged standoff at the Nativity compound in April/May 2002. According to EU reports, the deportees' subsidized stay in EU countries has been extended twice, and cannot be legally extended a third time. Some of the European countries expressed fear that the deportees would turn to crime or terrorism. Residents of Bethlehem have complained that some of the men, leaders of local terror militias, had imposed a reign of intimidation in the city. Two of them, now in Spain and Ireland, are believed to have raped two Christian girls before killing them under the pretext of collaboration with Israel.
TROOP MOVEMENT – Early Wednesday, Israeli troops encircled the northern Gaza town of Beit Hanoun with tanks and tore up roads to halt the firing of Kassam rockets that have hit nearby Israeli communities in recent days, killing two Israelis. Forces are expected to continue operating in the northern Gaza Strip on-and-off for the next few months. Meanwhile, troops killed a top Hamas commander near Beit Hanoun and shot dead a 14-year-old in southern Gaza who Palestinian medics said was standing on the roof of his home. IDF sources said troops fired at a person watching them from an abandoned building used by gunmen.
KIWI AID - New Zealand criticized Israel's recent destruction of Palestinian homes and donated hundreds of thousands of dollars to a UN organization helping Palestinian refugees on Wednesday. Associate Foreign Affairs Minister Marian Hobbs said, "We have been shocked and appalled by the recent displacement of thousands of civilian refugees following the destruction of their homes in the past few months.” New Zealand contributes NZ$300,000 (US$188,000) annually to UNRWA.
Where do I start today? The liberal Israeli Court again rules in favor of Arab, Palestinian rights as having priority over Jewish life (as long as it is not their lives). These liberal lawmakers of this generation boldly make the law rather then enforce what is already written. Only God's Law as written in the Bible remains unchangeable. It is absolutely pure, and only needs pure Judges to administer it correctly. The Millennial Kingdom will have such judges in the form of the perfected Christian Church saints. We will get intensive training in the Bible after the rapture to prepare us to administer God's Law for 1000 years. Read Mishpat to better understand the future of the "born again: Christian Church. Our future is to be expert in Jewish Law as the Old Testament and New Testaments equally come together without contradiction during the Millennial Kingdom!
"Din Rodef" is an example of corrupted application of the Jewish Biblical Law. There will be no room in the Millennial Kingdom for such Rabbis as Neventzal. There will be no room for corrupted traditions of either Jew or Christian. A perfect society is the intent by God in ushering in the Coming Kingdom. One perfect religion. One perfect government. All ruled over by one perfect Prophet, Priest, and King! It is all coming to the Holy Land, Jerusalem, and the Temple Mount!
The French seem to be the loudest voice of European gentile intentions. They would love to send an Islamic contingent of the French Foreign Legion to the Holy Land with credentials to kill Jews. It is all part of the gentile peace plan for the Holy Land! The Europeans so wanted to preserve the lives of the terrorists of Bethlehem as a political statement, but now must face the parents of two raped and murdered little girls. The God of the Bible intended these men be killed or caged for the rest of their lives, but the politically correct, God rejecting, Europeans wanted their rights be preserved.
The foolishness of the withdrawal from the Gaza continues to confront the conservative Sharon who has found the liberal Jews his biggest allies. The whole world can see the intent of the animalistic, Arab, Palestinians, and yet this withdrawal process continues. Self-righteous pride is the only explanation! It is akin to another liberal political leader saying "I did not have sexual relations with that woman" while the stained dress is being waved in the background?
Finally where were all the bleeding hearts when the Jews of this generation were kicked out of the Islamic countries where they had lived over a thousand years in som cases? These crockidial tears for the destruction of Palestinian homes of terrorists who go into Israel and blow themselves up is misplaced. This one sided New Zealand sentiment for the Islamic, Arab, Palestinians does not go un-noticed by the God of the Bible. I only wonder if when the Two Witnesses of Revelation 11 bring down fire, some of it will fall on New Zealand?
Judgment is coming to all of mankind. This generation is the one God chose to have the Jews return to the Holy Land, Jerusalem, and the Temple Mount. It is this generation that the preparations for dispensational change has begun. It is this generation God has chosen to stand as representatives of all previous generations who defied the God of the Bible. Much as Sodom and Gomorrah this generation is about to be the show piece of executed judgment! It may not be any worse, but it most certainly is not any better then those who have gone before. It will only be through the Jews that any gentiles will be blessed in the Kingdom Age. Abraham will finally be the blessing to the gentile nations so long proclaimed by the Bible. A perfect Jewish Kingdom will embrace all gentiles willing to come, and worship their Messiah/King in the Holy Land, at Jerusalem, and on the Temple Mount!!
