(IsraelNN.com) The High Court of Justice has upheld a decision by Public Security Minister Avi Dichter to ban Muslim burials on the grounds immediately southeast of the Temple Mount.
The area, which borders the eastern wall of the Temple Mount, is believed to contain important archaeological artifacts from the First Temple era and is designated as part of a national park. It is an extremely sensitive area in that the Temple Mount is considered Judaism's holiest site and the third holiest place in Islam.
Supporters of the committee and its petition included left-wing author A.B. Yehoshua, Hebrew University Jewish philosophy professor Avi Ravitsky, former IDF Chief of Staff Dan Shomron and senior archaeologists such as Gabriel Barkai, Eilat Mazar, Ehud Netzer, Ronny Reich and Ephraim Stern.
Police have been blocking Muslims from burying their dead at the site for several months, having identified dozens of plots sold by Silwan elders, who did not own the area, to Muslim families for their departed loved ones. At least 21 of the graves are occupied, 39 are empty and 35 other plots have not yet been opened. The committee has demanded in its petition that the unused gravesites be filled in.
“Muslim burial on the site, which was never a cemetery in the past, could end any possibility of excavating the area in the future, as has been done at the foot of the southern wall and the bottom part of the Western Wall” explained archaeologist Gabriel Barkai in the petition to block the burials.
An Islamic burial ground does exist outside the walls of the Temple Mount compound, at its southeast foot, but apparently Muslims had begun to extend their cemetery into the area defined as a national park.
Police had initially feared that stopping the burials would spark riots and other violence by Muslims. Jerusalem Police Chief Ilan Franco admitted to the court he had iniitially refused to escort city inspectors to hang up notices prohibiting use of the site after Muslims continued to build mausoleums, fearing the reaction by Islamic worshippers.
Repairs being made to a footbridge leading to the entrance of the Temple Mount at the Rambam (Mughrabi) Gate ignited days of violent protests across the country and massive demonstrations in Muslim communities worldwide. Muslims dumped tons of soil containing priceless artifacts into a riverbed in 1999 while digging a huge pit in the Temple Mount to build an entrance to Solomon’s Stables. The police did not act to stop the illegal digs despite numerous petitions and court orders to halt any such activity.
The area forms a seamline between construction from the Hasmonean and Herodian eras. Remains from the First Temple and 8th century B.C.E. sealing rings stamped “For the King” have been found in past excavations at the site, including one by British archaeologist Charles Warren 140 years ago.
Behind all the bravado lies a great deal of fear in the heart of Islam. They fear that the Bible will come true. They fear that the God of the Bible. The God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob will destroy their Arabic god of the Koran. The Islamic Ottoman Turks are the ones who built the present wall around the old city of Jerusalem atop the ruins of the original wall rebuilt by Herod who built upon foundations laid down by Kings David and Solomon. The Turks rebuilt all the gates right where the originals stood. They were shocked to find that the Bible predicted the walls and gates would all be restored in anticipation for the coming Jewish Messiah. Immediately the Turkish authorities bricked up the East Gate knowing it was through this gate that the Jewish Messiah was predicted to enter into the city to establish His Kingdom. The next thing they did was to plant a Moslem cemetery that reached right to the wall itself knowing no Orthodox Jew would ever knowingly walk over a grave. Islam today is under the same fear of the coming Jewish Messiah. They know how they have hated the Jews over the centuries when they have had the upper hand. They know retribution is coming, and they are in fear.
Friend, do you fear the wrath of the Holy God of the Bible who will not accept anything less then perfection? There is only one man who ever was commended by this God for His perfect life.
16And Jesus, when he was baptized, went up straightway out of the water: and, lo, the heavens were opened unto him, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove, and lighting upon him:
17And lo a voice from heaven, saying, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.
2 Peter 1:17-18
17For he received from God the Father honour and glory, when there came such a voice to him from the excellent glory, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.
18And this voice which came from heaven we heard, when we were with him in the holy mount.
Friend, I doubt this Holy God will say the same about you. I know He can't say that of me. The books are going to be opened, and the works of men will be their condemnation. Islam is wise to fear the retribution due their hate filled religion. The Bible is clear there is a place of refuge, but it is not in religion. It is only in the one single man who never sinned. Only He was able to make a perfect sacrifice of His own body that would be acceptable to a Holy God. That is just what the LORD Jesus Christ did for you on Calvary. It is only to Him where you can go to find salvation. Friend, have you come to this Christ of the Bible for the forgiveness of your sin? He has revealed in the Bible His great love for you, but He will not force His love on you. You must come to Him. The choice is left in your hands. The price for sin has been paid. It is up to you to receive the grace so freely offered. The masses are on their way to an eternal hell. They despise the love of this wondrous God of the Bible. Soon they will face the fierceness of His wrath. A Holy God is a just God, and for all sin there must be an accounting. I have come to Christ, and by simple faith trust Him to account for my sin through His precious blood shed at Calvary. I have no other plea. There is no other way to be written down in the book of life. What about you? The choice is to come to His love for lost sinners today, or face His wrath as a rebellious sinner who never came tomorrow. What is your decision?
The Lord Jesus Christ is coming again to the Holy Land, Jerusalem, and the Temple Mount. He will pass through this bricked up East Gate, and enter into the last Holy Jewish Temple yet to be built where this filthy shrine to man made religion now stands. The wrath of God will cleanse this world of sin on that day. A new dispensation is coming to planet earth. A thousand year Kingdom of perfect peace will be established in this very place. It is not going to be Islamic. It is all going to be about one single person - the LORD Jesus Christ. Are you ready?

Sderot: Rockets Keep Raining, Reservists Threaten Refusal
by Hana Levi Julian
(IsraelNN.com) IDF reservists who live in Sderot say they find it hard to protect others who won’t make an effort to help keep their own families safe from the Kassam rockets fired by terrorists in Gaza. Two rockets were fired Friday morning - one striking an auto garage in a western Negev kibbutz. No injuries were reported.
The group of enlisted men and officers sent a letter to Prime Minister Ehud Olmert, published today in the daily Yediot Ahronot, describing their disillusionment with the way the government has ignored their families’ need for protection.
The letter was translated by Dr. Aaron Lerner, director of the Independent Media Review and Analysis (IMRA) organization.
“With a heavy heart and feelings of harsh disappointment we are writing this letter…..We have stopped believing that someone is doing everything he can in order to protect us. We cannot accept that our children and the rest of the residents of the region will continue to be the cannon fodder of the State of Israel,” the letter reads in part.
The reservists remind the prime minister that they answered the call for duty without hesitation last summer when they were called to serve in the Second Lebanon War and charge Mr. Olmert with a double standard.
“We went out of a feeling of reciprocal pact, national obligation and common fate with the residents of the north,” the letter points out. “We feel that this pact was violating by the Government of Israel in Sderot and the communities adjacent to Gaza!”
The reservists end their letter by saying they do not want to serve and “protect the rest of the residents of Israel,” given the current situation in which “we are abandoned and our dear ones are unprotected without hope on the front.”
Israel Radio correspondent Nissim Keinan reported that the leaders of the reserve soldiers told him that the final version of the letter they gave Yediot Ahronot did not say that the sderot soldiers would not serve - but instead "find it difficult," but the paper opted to publish an earlier draft of the letter.
Imagine this being a black/white issue, or Hispanic/Anglo lack of protection situation. The media would be all over the government for bias treatment of an innocent minority group. Yet in Israel the discrimination against the Independent Fundamental Jewish Settlers is commonplace, and justified. They are looked upon as the hillbillies of the boarder towns. They are mostly the Russian Jews who flooded into Israel with the fall of the iron curtain. The cost of living skyrocketed with their arrival, and the mostly European resident Jews resented them. They represent the poor of which God speaks often in the Bible. It is the treatment of the poor that defines the culture of each generation. It is abundantly clear that this generation of Israelis are in big trouble with the God of the Bible.
11For the poor shall never cease out of the land: therefore I command thee, saying, Thou shalt open thine hand wide unto thy brother, to thy poor, and to thy needy, in thy land.
15Ye shall do no unrighteousness in judgment: thou shalt not respect the person of the poor, nor honour the person of the mighty: but in righteousness shalt thou judge thy neighbour.
The wrath of God is a terrible thing, and mistreatment of the poor will always bring justice from the mighty God of the Bible. Character is measured in real terms with how any particular generation treats the poor. The very poorest among us are the little babies in the womb. They are the most helpless. This hedonistic generation of ours has condemned itself to everlasting torment by this culture which is so filthy in the eyes of a Holy God. Our fate is set as the generation that will go into Great Tribulation and Armageddon. This hedonistic generation is going to be fodder for the antichrist as he uses one filthy group against another in his rise to power.
Self inflicted blindness is the root of this generation's downfall. The bleeding heart liberals actually believe they are being just is supporting filthy rotten mothers who would murder their babies out of convenience. Thank God such injustice will be done away when Christ returns.
A Kingdom is coming. Dispensational change is upon us. It is all centered in Israel. The Jews are back in their Promised Land because the Jewish Messiah is about to return. All injustice either by the Jews to the Independent Fundamental Jewish Settlers, or to the millions of little victims exterminated before they could ever take a breath by the blind liberals of America will end! It will be the wrath of God that will manifest itself in judgment, and that will set things straight once again.
Please note how blind the lost really are. They honestly believe that when they saw need they immediately took care of it. They will be blind to the end that what they perceived as need was only the fulfilling of their own hedonistic desires. Friend, how blind are you? Only Christ can reveal true righteousness. Only in Christ can the justice of the Holy God of the Bible be reconciled. We are all guilty, and in need of a Savior. Christ provided salvation at Calvary. Only His sin cleansing blood can open the blind eyes of this generation. Friend, are you saved? Have you come to this Christ of the Bible for the forgiveness of your sin? Now is the time! Come to Christ, and live!
A righteous man who is born again will do the right things. It will be automatic with him to chose the right side of every issue. It becomes so automatic that we do not even realize we are doing the will of the Holy God. The blind on the other hand are confident in their own righteousness. They justify everything they do even making it lawful to sin beyond imagination. Their fate is sealed in the words of the Bible. Their end will be eternal torment without the possibility of reprieve. Forever is a terrible condemnation. Friend, won't you come to Christ before it is too late?

Gaza Kindergarten Kids Get 'A" for Jihad
by Hana Levi Julian
(IsraelNN.com) Palestinian Authority kindergarten children demonstrated in a graduation ceremony how well they had learned their lessons this year.
A video clip of the ceremony, televised on Hamas’ Al-Aksa TV, was distributed Friday by the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI)
The little boys in the video march in formation and then drop to the floor, crawl on their bellies and vow to become terrorists when they grow up.
In the last minute of the clip, the boys in the televised ceremony shout “Allah Hu Akbar!” (Allah is great!).
“Who is your role model?” they are asked. “The Prophet,” they chant.
“What is your path?” demands the leader. “Jihad!” they cry, in their little camouflage uniforms and black masks, brandishing toy guns and waving green Hamas flags.
“What is your most lofty aspiration?”
“Death for the sake of Allah!”
The kindergarten is run by the same group that spawned the Hamas terrorist organization – the Islamic Association in Gaza.
This is not the first time that the Hamas terrorist entity has used little children as bait, indoctrinating them to hate Israel, Israelis and Jews and train them from infancy to become suicide bombers.
A significant number of suicide bombings have been carried out by PA adolescents and young adults.
Hamas recently used a look-alike of the Disney character, Mickey Mouse, in a television program promoting Islamic conquest of the world.
Known as a benevolent social services organization among the PA’s poor, Hamas continues to call for the destruction of the State of Israel.
Teaching the children to carry out terrorist attacks against Israel is a direct violation of the the Sharm el-Sheikh agreement in 2005. The Palestinian Authority (PA), headed by Fatah leader and PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas, agreed to halt incitement against Israel.
Hamas has said it is not bound by the pact, but the European Union (EU) and United States have declared it will not recognize the new Hamas-Fatah unity agreement if both factions do not accept previous agreements.
The god of the barbarians shows his face once again. We find this same god that caused those who worshipped him to cast their children as a living sacrifice into the fire with many names. He was called Molech, Moloch, Milcom, Malcham, and Chemosh down through the ages. Today he is called Allah! It is the same child sacrifice pagan god of the past. At his worst he was a bronze figure sitting with legs crossed, and out stretched arms. A fire was built in his lap that caused his arms to glow red with the heat. A family down on their luck were encouraged to cast their youngest child into his arms. This act of devotion was promoted as bringing prosperity back to the family. Desperate people do desperate deeds, and the worship of Molech brought out the most despicable religious worship the world has ever known. The cry Allah Hu Akbar (Allah is great) as well be Molech Hu Akbar, or Chemosh Hu Akbar. It is all the same god. The god that demands of the barbarians the sacrifice of their children. Death for the sake of Allah is taught to the kindergarteners of Islam as righteousness! The God of the Bible is clear that not only is the death penalty justified against these kindergarten teachers of Islam, but death is demanded of all who go a whoring after such teachers. The whoredom of Islam is rooted in their hate for the Jews. They have sold their souls to the devil as a result of their frustrated anger watching the Jews return to their Promised Land, and Islam is about to reap the whirlwind as a result. Molech worship is alive and well once again in the Holy Land thanks to Islam. The wrath of God is now kindled, and ready to pour down on these barbarians for such great sin.
The same type barbarians are working overtime here in America. Here we sacrifice our children while still in the womb. We cast them into the arms of Molech out of convenience for the promiscuous whores of our own making. Six years of Republican rule did nothing to stop the worship of Molech here in the United States. We teach the little girls how to move that body in kindergarten so they will fit into this filthy culture of rap dancing, and provocative cheerleading. I tell you true, as fierce as the wrath of God is going to come down on Islam is as fierce it will come down on the feather bed Christian culture of this generation.
Oh for the righteousness of Christ to reign on planet earth. Friend, I doubt you are part of the sins of Islam, but what about the sins of our Christian America? The forgiveness of sin is why Christ went to Calvary. The hedonistic sacrifice of innocent babies is called an abomination by the Holy God of the Bible. The willing sacrifice of the only perfect man to ever walk this planet is called the only acceptable atonement for sin. The LORD Jesus Christ said He did it out of love. Our death is a worthless thing only fulfilling the truth that the wages of sin is death, but the death of Christ who knew no sin offers Godly righteousness to the worthless sinner. Oh friend, won't you come to this Christ?
2 Corinthians 5:21
21For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.

(IsraelNN.com) The “Swords of Truth”, an Islamist vice squad responsible for bombing dozens of internet cafes, music shops, pool halls and at least two restaurants in Gaza, has now turned its attention to female TV broadcasters.
The group warned in a statement e-mailed to worldwide media Friday that it would behead female TV broadcasters in the Palestinian Authority who do not dress in strict accordance with religious Islamic standards.
“We will cut throats, and from vein to vein, if needed to protect the spirit and moral of this nation,” said the statement, which also called declared that female broadcasters are “without any…shame or morals.”
Female TV broadcasters in many Muslim countries wear headscarves and modest clothing. In some Arab countries, women are not allowed to broadcast at all.
This is the first time the Gaza terrorist organization has targeted a specific population. Until now, the Swords of Truth group has confined its activities to the destruction of places they consider to be venues of “immoral” activity.
Female broadcasters who were interviewed by the Associated Press (AP) said they had received death threats in calls to their cell phones. Many were frightened.
One PA anchorwoman said she did not go to work on Saturday as a result. “It’s a dangerous precedent in our society,” she said. “It will target all working women.” The journalist, who does not wear a headscarf, requested anonymity, fearing retribution.
The Palestinian Broadcasting Corporation (PBC), which is funded by PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas’ Fatah faction, said it was taking the threat seriously and had implemented security measures. PBC head Basem Abu Sumaya said, however, the company, which runs PA TV, could not protect broadcasters on their way to and from work.
Foreign Journalists Avoid On-site Coverage in Gaza
Gaza has become an increasingly hazardous place for journalists to ply their trade, with the Foreign Press Association warning its members several months ago to avoid entering Gaza when at all possible.
The last foreign journalist to maintain a full-time bureau office in Gaza City was British Broadcasting Corp. (BBC) reporter Alan Johnston, who was kidnapped at gunpoint March 12. Mr. Johnston had not been seen or heard from until last week, when he appeared in a video clip on an internet website frequently used by Muslim terrorists. The 45-year-old Scottish national appeared on the Islamist al-Ekhlaas website in a video clip bearing the Army of Islam logo. There is no way to know when the tape was made, however. Hundreds of journalists in and outside the Palestinian Authority have held demonstrations to protest the BBC reporter's abduction.
A number of other network news reporters have also been kidnapped within the past year.
Sixty-year-old American Steve Centanni and his 36-year-old cameraman Olaf Wiig of New Zealand were held for two weeks by a Hamas-linked group called the Holy Jihad Brigades. In an interview an hour after being freed, the two Fox News journalists said they had been forced at gunpoint to convert to Islam and also to tape a video they did not want to tape.
Associated Press photographer Emilio Morenatti, an Italian national, was kidnapped in October 2006, also in Gaza City and released unharmed 15 hours later.
Prior to Alan Johnston’s abduction, a 50-year-old Peruvian photographer with the French news agency Agence France Presse (AFP) was abducted by masked gunmen in January. The hostage, Jaime Razuri, was released a week later.
Islam is intent on replacing democracy in the Holy Land with Islamic law. It is the barbarian cry "off with their head" being heralded with all the hate the barbarian god Allah can muster. Women are a special target of these self appointed swords of truth vice squads. Woman are chattel to the barbarian god Allah. They are sex toys for all eternity in the Islamic concept of paradise. Yesterday it was child sacrifice, today it is cutting off the heads of working women. Islam has reached the depths of depravity. Islam is beyond repentance. They have become modern day barbarians.
Recognize this is just not a few radicals doing these barbarous acts. It may be a few who take the leadership rolls, but they could not do their dirty deeds if it were not for the support they have from the Islamic religion. The entire Islamic world is a world in bondage. Allah, the Arabic god of the barbarians has them all under lock and key. There was a moment in time when Arabs had an opportunity to come to the God of the Bible. They could have come to Christ for the forgiveness of their sins, and would have been fully accepted. Mohamed read both Old and New Testaments before he rejected Christ and the Bible. I would assume the Arabic world had the same opportunity. When Mohamed outright rejected the Christ of the Bible he had a long line of fellow rejecters ready to follow his lead when he wrote the Koran. Islam is without excuse! It may have taken 1700 years, but the Islamic vine is now ready for harvest. The wine press is full, and the wrath of God is about to crush these Christ rejecters for their most heinous sin. The fruit of their deception is clear to the entire world. Their mistreatment of women and children is legion. Their condemnation is fixed.
When they rejected Christ, they rejected truth. They turned to the lie, and the prince of liars. They purposely seared their consciences so that the lie would become palatable. Today, one of the worst generations of barbarians have been nurtured, and released on the planet. Each coming generation is being nurtured to be even more horrific then the one that went before. I can only wonder how this coming generation will treat women when they grow up? Their kindergarten training at age 5 is intended to make them far more depraved then these present sword of truth barbarians. Judgment is coming to Islam for these reasons. The wrath of God will not be contained for much longer.
Friend, it is not just Islam that is in a self willed bondage to sin. We were all born in sin after our father Adam who put us into this terrible bondage. God provided freedom from this bondage at the very beginning with the promise of a coming redeemer. Jesus Christ was that promised redeemer come from a virgin so as not to ever have been tainted with evil. His perfectly sinless sacrifice at Calvary provided the only atonement for sin that was acceptable to our Holy God. All men are without excuse for remaining in bondage. The deliverance has been accomplished as scripture always said would be the case. In our present dispensation all men are at liberty to receive Christ as Savior. He was the sure promise of the Old Testament, and the living Savior of our present dispensation. He is soon to be the King of Glory in the next dispensation. Friend, have you been delivered from the bondage of sin into the glorious liberty found in Christ? All you need do is come to Him for this eternal salvation He offers through His shed blood. Sin can be forgiven, but only through this Christ of the Bible. Won't you come right now? Won't you come to Christ, and live?
21Because the creature itself also shall be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God.

Though it failed to bring peace, Israel's 1967 military triumph saved the country and changed the global landscape.
By Michael Oren, MICHAEL OREN, a senior fellow at the Adelson Institute for Strategic Studies at the Shalem Center, is the author of "Six Days of War: June 1967 and the Making of the Modern Middle East" .
BY ALL contemporary accounts, it was one of the most stunning military victories in history. In six intense days of fighting that began on June 5, 1967, Israeli forces saved their country from an imminent existential threat, defeated three major Arab armies and almost quadrupled the territory under their country's control.
Israeli flags flew on the banks of the Suez Canal, over the Golan Heights and above the Temple Mount in Jerusalem, the holiest site in Judaism. The victory was so great that Israelis naturally assumed that this would be their last war and that the spoils of their triumph could be traded for a permanent peace.
Needless to say, it did not come to pass. Today, Israel still occupies much of the land it conquered in 1967, while peace remains maddeningly elusive. This week, 40 years after they astonished the world, and themselves, with their lightning-quick feat, many Israelis are questioning whether they indeed won the Six-Day War — or whether it was in fact a Pyrrhic victory leading to more wars, prolonged occupation, internal political turmoil and terror.
But that view ignores history and fails to consider Israel's position before the war began. Compare, for example, Israel's diplomatic and strategic situation on June 4, 1967: The country was surrounded by Arab states bent on its destruction, utterly isolated and outgunned. Egypt alone had five times as many soldiers as Israel, and 10 times the tanks. Beyond the Middle East, Israel faced an inimical Soviet bloc that generously armed the forces of Egypt, Syria and Iraq, as well as the animosity of China and India. Though generally friendly, the United States still refused to sell weapons to the Israelis, who remained militarily dependent on France. Worse yet, on the eve of the war, the French concluded that they had more to gain from Arab oil producers and abruptly switched sides, imposing a total arms embargo on Israel.
All of that changed within a week. Having begun the conflict with Arab guns pointed at all of its cities, Israel concluded the war with its own troops in artillery range of every neighboring Arab capital — an achievement that convinced Arab leaders of the impossibility of destroying the Jewish state by conventional means. Israel, as a result, was eventually able to reconcile with Jordan and to trade territory captured in the 1967 war for a peace agreement with Egypt, its strongest Arab adversary.
The victory over Soviet arms hastened the collapse of the Kremlin's influence in the Middle East and impressed the Indians and the Chinese, who later established excellent relations with Israel. Most significantly, the United States, which previously regarded Israel as a friendly country but one that impaired its relations with the Arab world, suddenly realized that the Jewish state was in fact a regional superpower. The U.S. subsequently forged an alliance with Israel that has remained robust ever since.
In addition to bringing geopolitical advantages, the Six-Day War vastly enhanced Israel's relationship with Jewish communities abroad. Before the war, some of the leading Jewish organizations in the U.S. were reserved, if not distant, in their relationship with Israel. Political mobilization for the Jewish state was minimal. But as Arab armies massed on Israel's borders, Diaspora Jews confronted the possibility of witnessing a second Holocaust within a single generation, and later, reveled in the joy of Israel's success. Many were inspired by the reunification of the state of Israel with the biblical Land of Israel — with Bethlehem, Hebron and, above all, Jerusalem. Contributions poured into Israel, enabling it to strengthen its economy and its ability to absorb new immigrants, and American Jewish organizations lobbied for its defense.
Of course, there can be no overlooking the fact that the Six-Day War led to the establishment of controversial Israeli settlements in the occupied West Bank and Gaza, to the ongoing conflict over Jerusalem and to the relentless debate over Palestinian statehood. And yet it was also the 1967 war that inaugurated the peace process — U.N. Resolution 242, enacted in its wake, remains the cornerstone of all negotiations — and created the conditions for Palestinian self-rule. The current Arab League peace plan calls for "full Israeli withdrawal … to the June 4, 1967, lines," and the "road map" plan endorsed by the United States and much of the international community provides for the emergence of a Palestinian state in the West Bank and Gaza.
None of this would be possible if the West Bank and Gaza were still occupied by Jordan and Egypt, respectively, as they were in 1967, and if the Arab world were still consumed with how best to make war, rather than peace, with Israel.
Even the most justified wars can have untold, negative consequences — World War II, for example, inaugurated the Cold War and communist control of Eastern Europe. The American Revolution, it could be argued, prolonged slavery in the United States and set the stage for the Civil War.
The Six-Day War was no exception. Though it resulted in a turbulent occupation of the West Bank and Gaza and contributed to the rise of terror, it also saved Israel from destruction and strengthened its economy, society and foreign relations. Most important, it opened opportunities for resolving the core issues of the Arab-Israeli conflict (which had already been underway for decades), for guaranteeing Israel's security and legitimacy and for achieving Palestinian independence.
It is now official. 40 years have pasted since God gave the Jews of Israel their greatest blessing. He gave them the city of Jerusalem, and the Temple Mount. The Jews of this generation have proved themselves as great a failure as the generations of the past when God cast them off into dispersion for their faithlessness. It is the Jews of this generation that have turned the blessing into a curse! They have refused to obey the LORD their God to keep and do His statutes and, judgments. This is a generation of mostly liberal secular politically motivated Jews of which a recent poll showed 80% do not even believe in God. Those Jews who do claim belief follow the leaven of the Pharisees. They turned to legalism, and pride in their own efforts to keep statutes of their own making. The God of the Bible demands perfection! He wants a humbled heart seeking forgiveness. The religious Jews of today give Him a mere 619 areas of obedience, and would obligate God to save them on such a pittance of attempted obedience. The religious Jews of today filled with the pride of the Pharisees are in the same condition of the Jews during the days of Amos.
21I hate, I despise your feast days, and I will not smell in your solemn assemblies.
22Though ye offer me burnt offerings and your meat offerings, I will not accept them: neither will I regard the peace offerings of your fat beasts.
23Take thou away from me the noise of thy songs; for I will not hear the melody of thy viols.
24But let judgment run down as waters, and righteousness as a mighty stream.
25Have ye offered unto me sacrifices and offerings in the wilderness forty years, O house of Israel?
26But ye have borne the tabernacle of your Moloch and Chiun your images, the star of your god, which ye made to yourselves.
The star of your god, which ye made yourselves is what the Star of David represents in modern Israel. These Jews do not even offer burnt offerings, and meat offerings as did the Jews in the days of Amos. Offerings for sin at the altar are not listed among the 619! 40 years have pasted as was the time in the wilderness for that pitiful generation which witnessed the great miracles of God in Egypt, but proved unfaithful. 40 years to die off so a new generation could be raised up to be faithful. Today, all that the Jews nurtured are Jews as unfaithful as themselves. The Jews of today are no closer to building Ezekiel's Temple on the Temple Mount as were the Jews of 40 years ago.
Friend, the LORD Jesus Christ has expectations for His children as this present dispensation draws to a close. It is a changed heart that He seeks. A heart that arbores sin! A heart that desires to do the statutes, and judgments of God. We fall short! We have to continually, and humbly cast ourselves before the altar of Calvary. We must acknowledge that it is only through Christ that we can do anything that would be a sweet savor to the perfect Holy God of the Bible. We must be born again, or all our efforts will be despised by this absolutely Holy God which we worship. Are you born again? Have you come to this Christ of the Bible who willingly sacrificed Himself on Calvary so sin for all time could be atoned? Christ paid it all with His precious blood, but you must come to Him for forgiveness. Won't you come? Have you been severed from this world of sin? Are you resting in Christ, and Christ alone?
22But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves.

(IsraelNN.com) The radical-left Peace Now group demands, in Hevron, an end to the Jewish presence there. The Jews counter-protested.
Though the Jewish Community in Hevron was unhappy with the Supreme Court's recent decision to allow the protest, the Jews decided not to fall into the trap set for them by Peace Now. "The leftists want to cause a provocation," said resident and activist Itamar Ben-Gvir, "and we won't let it happen. They're expecting us to throw tomatoes so that they can have photos all over the world - but we won't give them the pleasure."
Ben-Gvir explained, however, that they couldn't simply ignore those whose "traitorous actions caused us to run away from Gush Katif and most of Hevron."
In that spirit, therefore, a small but enthusiastic group of some 50 people - including many who do not live in Hevron - demonstrated and held signs boasting of the Jewish People's eternal connection to Hevron and the Land of Israel. The signs read, "Our parents are buried here" [a reference to the Machpelah Cave of the Patriarchs], "No more disengagement from our legacy," "The Kibbutzim are on stolen Arab land," "Hevron is like Tel Aviv," and even just "Traitors".
Many of the Land of Israel protestors arrived on a bus organized by Kumah and sponsored by Friends of the National Young Israel USA, together with representatives of Women in Green and the Nahalal Forum. They stood not far from the Machpelah Cave, separated by police from the 300 leftist protestors who came to demand an end to the Jewish Community in Hevron. The Peace Now group chanted slogans such as, "1, 2, 3, 4 (Arba) - Evacuate Kiryat Arba!" and "Peace yes, Occupation no."
Peace Now is dedicated to destroying the Jewish presence in Judea and Samaria [Yesha], and often seeks out Arabs who will claim that Jewish towns are built on their land.
The PA news agency Ma'an recently thanked Peace Now for publishing a report - false, according to the Yesha Council - alleging that 40% of Yesha communities are built on private Arab land. A Ma'an editorial wrote that the report "shows part of the true face of the Hebrew State... Where are all the Israeli mottos about justice, democracy and civil rights?... This is now a 'ready-to-go' case for the International Court... Now that Peace Now has given this gift to the land-owners, we must thank this organization, and see what the land-owners and the PA will do; for there is much to do..
Ben-Gvir said that now that the Supreme Court has allowed a near-provocation by approving the Peace Now rally in Hevron, "we will submit a request to hold a public protest in [the Israeli-Arab city] Um el-Fahm."
Activist Tzafrir Ronen of the Nahalal Forum said, "If an Israeli organization had organized a rally calling for the expulsion of Arabs from Hevron and from the Biblical Land of Israel that belongs to the Jewish People, what would all the righteous people of the legal system say then? Is it legitimate to call publicly for the destruction of the Jewish community in Hevron?"
Also addressing the crowd was IsraelNationalRadio.com broadcaster Yishai Fleisher, who said, "They use the right term when they say they wish to uproot us - for here is where our roots truly lie... This land is not 'occupied,' as some claim; we are rather 'pre-occupied' with this land, and have been for thousands of years... We are about to read the Torah portion dealing with the spies sent by Moses, who returned with a negative report about the Land; we dare not stand silently by as modern-day spies try to tear us away from our Land once again."
Ten of the spies said "we be not able to go up against the people for they are stronger then we." So also is Peace Now telling the Jews of this generation that they can't go up against the Islamic world because Islam is stronger then we. The whole idea is for the Jews to go up against people stronger then they. It is their God who gives them the victory, and His power would be meaningless if they had the power amongst themselves. The whole purpose of every Exodus is to prove not only to the Jews, but also to the gentile nations the power of this God of the Bible! It matters not what the enemy's strength may be, this God can't be resisted. His power can destroy the heathen no matter how big they may be. The faithful Jews of Hebron live right in the midst of the worst barbarians in the world,, and they have no fear. The barbarians are in turmoil that their fearsome faces have no effect on these faithful Jews. So it was also in Gaza until the forced expulsion of the 8,000 Independent Fundamental Jewish Settlers. Expelled because of evil reports by their own government. The truth in the days of the first Exodus was that God was able to drive out the giants with the grasshoppers. The truth today is that the Islamic barbarians are no match against the God of the Bible. It is not an issue of Islamic strength as much as it is an issue of Jewish faith. The vast majority of the Jews of this third Exodus have no faith. They think they can tame the savage barbarians through their own wit without any help from God. Oh what chastening God has prepared for this stiff-necked generation. Great Tribulation is coming to planet earth, but the end will loosen the neck. Then God will be acknowledged as their God, and they shall be His people.
Friend, God is about to set His tabernacle among the Jews one more time. Ezekiel's Holy Jewish Temple will be built on the Temple Mount. All the filth of Al Aqsa will be bulldozed away pushed into the Kidron Valley where all the smashed idols to false gods were dumped in past times. Oh friend, I pray you will hearken unto the God of the Bible, and come to Christ for your salvation.

(IsraelNN.com) As polls continue to show overwhelming national opposition to giving up the Golan, opposition MKs blast PM Olmert for offering it to Syria. Left-wing MKs, on the other hand, want him to act, not just talk.
Prime Minister Ehud Olmert's latest offer to give the Golan Heights to Syria flies in the face of polls showing public opposition to ceding the Golan, and has many MKs on both sides of the political spectrum up in arms
Olmert reportedly informed Syria last month that he is willing to cede the Golan to Syrian sovereignty, but wishes to verify that Syria will, in turn, cut its ties with Iran, Hizbullah and Palestinian terrorist organizations.
Likud MK Calls on Shas and Yisrael Beiteinu to Quit Government-
MKs from the Likud and National Union/National Religious Party came out vehemently against Olmert. Likud faction head Gideon Saar called upon Shas and Yisrael Beiteinu - two coalition parties whose voters are nearly all right-wing - to immediately quit the government. "Olmert has no public legitimacy for a withdrawal from the Golan," Saar said. "Far from our eyes, processes are taking place that will be hard to stop in the future. The responsibility for this lies upon all the members of the government and coalition."
Likud MK Yisrael Katz was more succinct, saying, "It would be better to replace Olmert than to give up the Golan Heights."
MK Effie Eitam (National Union), a former IDF Galilee Formation Commander and a resident of the Golan, told Ynet that the initiative is merely an attempt by the government to cover up its responsibility for its failures in the Second Lebanon War.
Along the same lines, National Religious Party leader Zevulun Orlev said, "Olmert is willing to sell the Golan to save his seat... This is his last-gasp effort to survive."
From the Left: Give it Away Now
Left-wing MKs, on the other hand, attacked Olmert for only offering the Golan and not actually taking steps to actualize the offer. Meretz Party leader Yossi Beilin said the agreement to give back the Golan has been ready to sign "ever since 2000 when [then-PM] Ehud Barak became scared of himself and ended the meeting with the Syrians in Shepherdstown, West Virginia." Barak is currently running once again for leadership of Labor; the internal election will be held this Tuesday.
MK Zahava Gal'on of Meretz said that Olmert must not suffice with declarations, but initiated a meeting with Syria's Foreign Minister.
Polls Show Support for Golan
A poll commissioned last summer by the Harry S. Truman Research Institute for the Advancement of Peace at the Hebrew University found that 56% of the Israelis oppose full evacuation of the Golan Heights in return for a full peace agreement with Syria.
A more recent poll, carried out this week by Teleseker for Maariv, shows that a full 84% of the public opposes a full withdrawal from the Golan. Some 44% oppose a withdrawal from any part of the Golan Heights, and 40% said they support only a partial withdrawal. In addition, 74% of the public do not believe that Assad is interested in peace.
The Jews of this generation now celebrating 40 years since the restoration of Jerusalem and the Temple Mount into Jewish hands are the give it all away generation. The Golan Heights were part of the 1967 victory blessing from God. It should be no surprise that the Olmert Liberal secular government would be ready to include the Golan giveaway as an intended goal of their reign. I question the poll that says 84% of Israelis are opposed to the Golan giveaway. I'm sure it has more with the way the poll questions were asked then revealing the truth of what is in the heart of this generation of Jews. I know that if Olmert were to give away the Golan 84% of the Israelis would not put up a fuss. The Jews of today are no less hedonistic a society as any other. The issue as far as the Bible goes is that God expects them to rise above all others. God has given them the Promised Land once again, and this generation is bending over backwards to give it to the barbarians. They treat God's blessings as a curse in need of being put into barbarian hands. God has not called the barbarians to lead the way to the promised Kingdom Age. He has called the stiff-necked Jews of this generation. It is not God who will change as a result of Jewish disobedience. It is Jewish disobedience that must change. A new heart is the only solution. A circumcised heart that will forever submit to the ordinances, statues, and commandments of God. A heart that would be acceptable by the Holy God of the Bible to build the next Holy Jewish Temple on the Temple Mount.
Deuteronomy 30 is about to be fulfilled for the Jews of this generation. What about you dear friend? Have you allowed this God of the Bible to circumcise your heart, or have you resisted Him at every turn? It is only through Christ that the heart can be changed. It is only the miracle working Christ who has such power. Friend, you must come to Him, or you will remain forever His enemy. It is His shed blood on Calvary that provides the power of salvation. It is His blood that is the basis for the forgiveness of sin. Friend, have you come to this Biblical Christ?

Egypt not stopping weapons flow into Gaza
The Israeli defense establishment is growing increasingly frustrated with Egypt's inability to put a stop to the continuous flow of illegal weapons into the Gaza Strip via Sinai. Some senior Israelis have come to believe that Cairo might just be interested in "seeing Israeli blood spill." Last month, The Jerusalem Post reported that Egypt had told Israel that it would consider digging a moat along the corridor separating the Gaza Strip from Sinai. Dozens of tunnels used to smuggle weapons into the Strip run under the corridor, and some 750 Egyptian border policemen are currently stationed in the area and charged with the sole task of curbing the smuggling. "If the Egyptians wanted to, they could have stopped the smuggling a long time ago," an Israeli official recently said, adding that the likelihood of an Egyptian moat being built along the border is very low.
Islam follows the prince of the air, the father of liars, and so it should be no surprise that all Islamic nations have no convictions about what they say as opposed to what they do. Islam as a religion teaches every faithful Moslem to hate the Jew. This hate has reached a new fervor ever since God began this Third Exodus of our times bringing the Jews back to their Promised Land. Islam wants the Holy Land for themselves, and will never share it most of all not with the hated Jews. The fox is in the hen house as long as the Egyptians are expected to stop the flow of weapons into the Gaza. Islam is preparing to wipe Israel off the map, and the liberal politics of today are tying the hands of any who could stop them. It is only a matter of time before war breaks out. Syria is already stacking up the boarder with military units ready for invasion. The liberal Jewish politicians are scurrying to give the Syrians the Golan in hopes it will pacify these barbarians. The Syrians smell the fear of the hated Jews, and see victory in the air. They are not going to stop even if Olmert gives them the Golan as a free gift. The lust for Jewish blood is too great among the this generation of Moslems. I don't know how this latest crises will proceed, but I do know a much greater Islamic invasion is in the wind. An invasion bringing the Islamic barbarians North of the Caucasus Mountains into the fray as the Northern prong of the invading Islamic force. Iran is already prepared to be the Eastern prong, and the Moslems of North Africa will quickly join the fray as the Southern prong. I see this very clear future prophecy laid out in Ezekiel 38 & 39 as the "Last Jihad."
I assume the US will have pulled out of Iraq as the liberal Democrats are promising the American public. I also assume that the political hands of the US will be tied forcing us into inaction. We will just comfortably sit back, and watch once extricated from the Middle East. God is going to intervene on behalf of His Jewish seed. Ezekiel 39 describes the end of Islam. This filthy religion of the barbarian is already relegated to the dung heap of history. The Bible tells us that as a result of Ezekiel 38 & 39 the Jews will acknowledge their God once again.
7So will I make my holy name known in the midst of my people Israel; and I will not let them pollute my holy name any more: and the heathen shall know that I am the Lord, the Holy One in Israel.
Once Islamic influence over the Holy Land is destroyed, the Jews will be free to build their last Holy Jewish Temple on the Temple Mount. The Bible tells us the antichrist will make his appearance at this time signing a treaty with the Jews as a representative of the Western world. He will sign the peace treaty that will allow the Jews to build Ezekiel's Temple on the Temple Mount as described in Ezekiel 40 - 48. The chronology of Ezekiel is indisputable. The last Jihad then the Last Holy Jewish Temple! A great change takes place in the Jewish heart after God saves them from the barbarians. They will no longer pollute His Holy Name. The Jews will have the right kind of heart that will be acceptable to this Holy God of the Bible. They will be ready to bring in the transition from one dispensation to the next. The Church Age will have ended, and preparation for the Jewish Kingdom Age with Ezekiel's Temple will have begun.
Friend, are you ready? There is only one place of refuge from the horrors that are coming to planet earth, and that place is the LORD Jesus Christ. Are you born again? Have you come to Christ for the application of His precious blood shed a Calvary for the remission of your sins? Another Holy Jewish Temple with an Altar for blood sacrifice is predicted to be built for the kingdom Age. All blood will be offered in remembrance of Calvary. Friend, are you covered by the blood for the remission of sins?

Syria Continuing to Mobilize for War
by Hana Levi Julian
(IsraelNN.com) The IDF is preparing for a defensive war with Syria, even as Prime Minister Ehud Olmert continues to send messages of peace to President Bashar Assad.
The prime minister told the Syrian president last month that Israel would be willing to withdraw from the Golan Heights if Syria were prepared to make peace, according to the Hebrew newspaper Yediot Aharonot. The Syrian ruler responded positively to the offer, the newspaper stated.
The report said Prime Minister Olmert instructed his aides to make contacts with Assad following an hour-long phone conversation with American President George W. Bush in May. The U.S. president reportedly gave his go-ahead for the contacts despite the stated American policy that dissuades Israel from dealing with Syria as long as it supports terrorism.
A number of other government officials are supporting continued efforts to cool down the situation.
IDF Chief of General Staff Lt.-Gen. Gabi Ashkenazi has reportedly advised the government to conduct secret negotiations with Syria in the hopes of staving off a conflict. The army chief of staff warned in a speech to the IDF Officers Training School earlier this year, “The IDF is preparing for an escalation on both the Palestinian and the northern fronts.”
Defense Minister Amir Peretz also added his hope that negotiations with Syria would prevent such an escalation.
Nonetheless, Mossad Chief Meir Dagan strongly opposed suggestions that Israel respond to President Assad’s public overtures. The head of international intelligence said the Syrian president is simply trying to relieve international pressure to end its support for terrorist organizations and has no intention of avoiding a war.
Damascus is home to Hamas political bureau chief and arch-terrorist Khaled Masha’al, who is largely responsible for the continued captivity of IDF Cpl. Gilad Shalit, kidnapped a year ago in a cross-border raid by Hamas terrorists from Gaza.
Syria also provides generous support to the Iranian-backed Hizbullah terrorist organization in Lebanon. It was Hizbullah which ignited the Second Lebanon War last summer with a simultaneous cross-border attack that sent Katyusha rockets flying toward northern Israeli communities while operatives kidnapped IDF reservists Ehud Goldwasser and Eldad Regev and killed eight others.
Thousands of weapons, ammunition and other materiel have made their way to Hizbullah terrorists from Iran through the Syrian border, despite a United Nations mandate that Lebanon prevent the smuggling. UNIFIL (the United Nations Interim Force in Lebanon) has reported the arms transfers but is powerless to stop them unless authorized by the Lebanese government to do so. At least five cabinet members in the Lebanese government are linked to Hizbullah.
Meanwhile, the IDF continues its preparations for a possible conflict in case Mr. Olmert fails in his efforts to convince the Syrians not to attack. A large-scale military exercise held three days ago at the Shizafon base in the south of Israel simulated an invasion of Syria within the context of a war, involving infantry units, tank divisions and the Air Force.
Defense Minister Peretz admitted in an interview on Army Radio that the IDF is indeed preparing for the possibility of war.
The defense minister stressed, however, that the IDF drills are “not an indication of any decision, either by us or the Syrians, to go to war. These are purely defensive measures,” he added.
IDF intelligence chief Major-General Amos Yadlin also hastened to play down the significance of the preparations, saying that the army exercises were “merely precautionary.”
But Syrian MP Muhammad Habash confirmed on Al-Jazeera Arabic world news satellite television network Tuesday that Syria is indeed actively preparing for war with Israel, which it expects to start this summer. He claimed it was Israel’s government, however, that wants the war, in order to survive politically.
In response, Social Affairs Minister Yitzchak Herzog warned at a meeting in Europe this week that Syria would be wise to reconsider its hostility.
"The Syrians should not miscalculate," Herzog said. "The chances for negotiations are dependent on the seriousness of President Assad's intentions. In recent days, we have made it clear that Israel has no intention of opening up a front with the Syrians. We hope that on their side, as well, there is no intention to drag the region into unnecessary tensions."
Israel is preparing for a conventional war while the Syrians are preparing from the lessons learned in Lebanon. They will let Israel come in, and then close the trap with gorilla tactics using road side bombs in populated areas where detection is near impossible. Russian made tank busters will be used not as tactical weapons, but solely aimed at the psychological effect this will have on the Jewish populous. The invincibility of the Merkvah reflects on the invincibility of the IDF. The Islamic world has found the winning combination. Draw the Jews into a forever battle that will never end. Kidnapping one or two is far better then killing a thousand soldiers in conventional warfare. It is very obvious Olmert is undeterred, and never learning. He is going to make the same mistakes he made in Lebanon. He is preparing for another Israeli defeat. This will be another war run by the politicians. Every move by the Israeli Defense Force will be measured not for victory, but for political consequences. Israel may even go so far as to check with Bush before issuing an order.
It is a sad thing that Bush is again making decisions that would give parts of the Holy Land to the barbarians. I'm convinced the downward spiral of the Bush presidency started with his adoption of the Road Map. Afghanistan was an astounding success. The conventional war in Iraq was icing on the cake, but then came the announcement by Colin Powel that the Evangelical White House would back the Road Map peace plan for the Holy Land that was designed by the Russians. The atheistic Europeans had already gotten aboard, and Bush looking to counter all the "going it alone" criticism made the crucial decision to adopt the Road Map. This is the plan that turned the 1967 blessings of God into a curse! This is the plan that will give Jerusalem, and the Temple Mount to the barbarians. This is the plan that is the greatest attempt in our age to stop the LORD Jesus Christ from returning because the capital of His coming Kingdom would be in Islamic hands. I doubt our Evangelical White House had this in mind when they adopted the Road Map, but that is certainly what is happening. We have become the enemies of the Bible by supporting the Koran over the Bible in the Holy Land. We have become the enemies of God, and His only begotten Son the LORD Jesus Christ! We are the stumbling stone put in the path of those who will build the last Holy Jewish Temple from where Jesus is predicted in the Bible to rule the world. We are doing our best to stop any Biblical prophecy from taking place during our generation.
I attribute White House Evangelical acceptance of the Road Map to Biblical ignorance. Our neither cold or hot last generation of the Church Age fittingly fills the lukewarm indictment made in the Bible against us where the Road Map is concerned. God has performed a miracle in 1967 by putting Jerusalem, and the Temple Mount in Jewish hands for the first time in almost 2000 Years. It is this Evangelical generation that would take away from the Jews the Gaza, the Golan heights, most of Jerusalem, and with Jerusalem will go Jewish sovereignty over the Temple Mount. We are the guilty party throwing stumbling stones in front of God as He is working to change dispensations in our generation. What about you dear friend? What are you throwing in the path of God? He intends that you be saved through Christ. Have you submitted to His plan of salvation, or are you doing all you can to evade your need of coming to Christ? Jesus died on Calvary a most cruel death so that sinners could be freed from the bondage of sin. Do not throw His love back in His face by avoiding the issue of your salvation. Won't you come to this Christ of the Bible, and live. Be warned, what you do with Christ has eternal consequences.

(IsraelNN.com) Hamas and Fatah terrorists agreed Monday to hold their fire, at least long enough for Palestinian Authority high school children in Gaza to get through their high school graduation exams. The ill-fated truce which lasted only several hours was brokered by Egypt.
The 70,000 students have been forced to dodge machine gun barrages, snipers’ bullets and kidnappers on their way to and from school over the past months.
But hours after the Monday truce was declared, gunshots created new pockmarks in buildings as Hamas and Fatah terrorists continue to try to kill each other. Loyalists to Mahmoud Abbas' Fatah attacked the PA Ministry of Youth and Sports, headed by Hamas member Bassam Naim. PA sources said no one was injured in the gunfight.
Six people were killed over the weekend and at least 55 others were wounded in the latest round of fighting between the two Palestinian Authority coalition government partners.
Both terror organizations used new methods as they redoubled their struggle for control of the government.
Militants opened fire at the home of Hamas PA Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh in the Shati neighborhood of Gaza City. Hamas officials would not say whether their leader was present during the apparent assassination attempt.
Local sources did say the PA prime minister’s wife, children and grandchildren were in the home during the 15-minute barrage of bullets fired from a nearby high-rise building.
On Sunday, Hamas terrorists grabbed a member of PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas’ elite Force 17 Presidential Guard and hurled him to his death from the roof of a 15-story apartment building.
Fatah responsed in kind by kidnapping a Hamas imam (cleric) and shoving him to his death from the 12th floor of a building. In ensuing gunbattles and shelling, at least one other person was killed and over 30 wounded.
Three others were killed in the course of the weekend.
Some of the fiercest fighting took place in the strategic town of Rafiah, located next to the Rafiah terminal which serves as Gaza’s international border crossing into Egypt.
Terrorists toting rocket-propelled grenades (RPGs) and machine guns patrolled the town, while sniper shots rang out in the blood-drenched streets.
Egyptian negotiators brokered a previous truce between the Hamas and Fatah terrorist organizations which broke down two months ago.
Since then, more than 60 people have been killed and at least a hundred have been wounded, including several children, as a result of the PA militia war.
This is the kind of government, and culture the Road Map wants to rule most of the Holy Land. These would be the forever neighbors to a drastically scaled down Israeli presents in the Holy Land. Here is the proof of what Islamic law is all about. It is the law of the barbarian! It is the law of Islamic righteousness where children are encouraged to be suicide bombers. It is the law of slitting the throats of working women who would step out from the chattel cages where Islamic culture has placed them. Now it is the law, or a righteous act to throw your enemies alive off multistory buildings. These are the people that the Road Map wants to place in the Holy Land forever. The Road Map would give them a forever state with most of Jerusalem as their capital. What a slap in the face to the God of the Bible who says that He shall bless out of Zion, and shall dwell at Jerusalem. If the Road Map gets its way Islam will be sending children suicide bombers after each blessing is generated. I hope you can see why Islam must be wiped out of the Holy Land if God is ever going to bless this sorry planet. Days of great blessings through the Jews are predicted in the Bible. It will be the Jewish King of Glory ruling from the Last Holy Jewish Temple yet to be built on the Temple Mount who will be the source of all blessings. The heathen barbarians will be ban from ever stepping foot into the Holy Land in that day. Holiness will reign when Christ sits on His throne.
20In that day shall there be upon the bells of the horses, HOLINESS UNTO THE Lord; and the pots in the Lord's house shall be like the bowl's before the altar.
21Yea, every pot in Jerusalem and in Judah shall be holiness unto the Lord of hosts: and all they that sacrifice shall come and take of them, and seethe therein: and in that day there shall be no more the Canaanite in the house of the Lord of hosts.
Friend, Islam is not going to be the victor in the Holy Land. The Koran is soon to be dumped on the dung hill of history where all other false religions have ended up. Islam will follow the way of all the pagans who went before them. The God of the Bible will not be mocked.
7Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.
All men are going to be judged, and what they sowed in this life is what they will reap. God is never going to let Christ be mocked again! Those who never come to Christ for salvation would mock Him for all eternity as having wasted His life on Calvary. This is not going to happen. Eternal condemnation in the lake of fire where they will be forever in torment will end all their mocking. Friend, what about you? Have you ever come to Christ in humble repentance, or are you another mocker of Christ? He was mocked once, but never again! The Holy King of Glory will not be mocked either by Islam, or by you! Won't you come to this Christ of the Bible, and live? Oh what He went through so that you and I could be saved. Friend, won't you come?

(IsraelNN.com) An Israeli Institute for Democracy survey shows that 66% of Israelis are unhappy with the way Israeli democracy functions - but they're not leaving.
The latest annual survey, entitled "2007 Israeli Democracy Index: Cohesiveness in a Divided Society", finds that the proportion of those who are unhappy with Israel's democracy jumped by 12 percentage points over last year.
In general, the survey finds that Israelis are not proud of the way their country works - but do not want to leave, and are willing to fight for it if necessary.
Among the findings:
- 79% of those interviewed say they concerned with the current situation in Israel.
- 86% of state that the government is not dealing adequately with the country’s problems. Only 29% give credence to statements issued by the political echelon regarding Israel’s security.
- 70% agree that politicians tend not to take the average citizen’s opinion into account, and 68% believe that the people running the country are motivated by personal interests rather than the public good.
- Despite the above, 76% of Israeli citizens are proud to be Israeli, despite the current atmosphere, and 80% of Israelis want or seriously intend to continue living in Israel in the long term. Most Israelis deeply identify with the state and the problems that it faces, and are prepared to fight for their country should the need arise.
- Support for a "strong leader" is up. Those who agree that a few strong leaders would prove more useful to the state than all of the discussions held and laws passed now number 69%, compared to 60% last year.
- 75% of the respondents believe that there is a great deal of corruption in Israel.
Regarding Jewish-Arab relations, 87% rated Jewish-Arab relations in Israel as poor or very poor. Both Jewish and Arab respondents stated that they find it difficult to trust each other; 73% expressed the belief that the other side tends to behave violently.
Significantly, the report did not provide the breakdown of how many Jews felt Arabs are violent, and how many Arabs feel that way about Jews.
Trust in Government - Down
The authors of the report feel that its most conspicuous finding is a 22% decline in the level of trust shown by the public in the Prime Minister – 21% now, compared to 43% a year ago. However, trust in all government bodies dropped: Trust in the Supreme Court dropped to 61%, compared to 68% last year; the police - 41 (44 last year), IDF - 74 (79), Knesset - 74 (79), and the government - 31 (39). Trust in the media stayed basically the same, at 45%, compared to 44% last year. Trust in the President plunged drastically from 67% to 22% - an unsurprising finding, given the accusations against President Moshe Katzav.
The Supreme Court is perceived by 39% of the public as the institution that most effectively safeguards democracy, followed by the media at 34%, the Prime Minister at 14%, and the Knesset at 13%. A significant increase was registered in the degree of trust placed in the media as a means to safeguard democracy – from 25% to 34%.
The survey also found that 59% of those interviewed stated that they favor a socialist-economic approach over capitalism.
The Democracy Index is produced by IDI's Guttman Institute, by Yael Hadar and Nir Atmor under the direction of Professor Asher Arian. The Index includes data from a public opinion survey based on a representative sample of 1,203 interviewees in three languages, conducted by Machshov as well as assessments and comparative data from international research institutes.
The only reason why democracy worked so well in America was because it was based on "in God we trust." It was the God of the Bible to which we referred, and we were blessed. Today, God has been turned into the universal god of the ignorant. Our own Evangelical President tells us that Allah, and Jehovah are the same god. Folks let me be as clear as I possibly can be. Allah is a false god of Arabic origin. Mohamed read the Bible both Old and New Testaments, and rejected the God of the Bible who sent His only begotten Son to be the single atonement for the sins of all the ages. Mohamed then wrote the Koran, and introduced the world to Allah. History has revealed that Allah is really the god of the barbarians. He is the same child sacrificing god we read about from the past known as Moloch, Molech, Chemosh, and Milcom. Today this heathen god is named Allah. The names may change, but the barbarous method of worship remains the same. It is blasphemy to take the theological position that Allah, and the God of the Bible are the same! The Jews are in the forefront as the victims of Allah. The children of Islam have been nurtured to sear their consciences when it comes to murdering Jewish innocent civilians. All Jews have been categorized as worthless monkeys. Vermin of which the world would be better off with their extermination. The children of Islam are taught to sacrifice their lives to Allah in the murdering of Jews. This battle over the Holy Land is not just the battle of democracy or barbarianism. It is much greater! It is the battle between the Bible, and the Koran. The battle between good and evil! Democracy becomes insignificant when the larger picture is in view. Especially the way Jewish democracy works. It has everything to do with filthy politics, and nothing to do with God.
The hope of Israel is not in democracy. The hope of Israel is in the Messiah their redeemer. He is not going to run for office. If He did this generation would never vote for Him. He will immediately demand Ezekiel's Temple be built on the Temple Mount. He will not take a poll. He will just say the Bible commands the Temple be built. It is the clear will of God! The majority is of no consequence where God is concerned. His righteousness and holiness is all that matters. Men must come into line, or they will eventually pay the consequences. The majority do not count. It is the humbled faithful remnant for which God has promised His blessing. The rejecting masses are on their way to hell. The majority is wrong. They want only the world, the flesh, and the devil. Their end is fixed in eternal torment where the worm never dies. Friend, what about you? Where are you headed? Come to Christ, and live.
3Incline your ear, and come unto me: hear, and your soul shall live; and I will make an everlasting covenant with you, even the sure mercies of David.

Dozens of Fatah Members Flee to Egypt
(IsraelNN.com) Dozens of members of Fatah fled to Egypt on Wednesday afternoon after members of rival terrorist group Hamas managed to take control of Gaza, according to Al-Jazeera. Once in Egypt, the Fatah terrorists turned themselves in to Egyptian forces and requested refuge.
According to the Al-Jazeera report, hundreds more Gaza Arabs are attempting to enter Egypt at this time. Hamas has warned members of Fatah to surrender within two days or face a widespread and brutal attack.
Hamas Publishes Fatah Hit-List, Confiscates US-Supplied Weapons
by Ezra HaLevi
(IsraelNN.com) The civil war between Hamas and Fatah terrorists raged on in Gaza Wednesday, with Hamas on the verge of victory. Hamas seized thousands of weapons and vehicles granted to Fatah by the Oslo Accords.
A Hamas spokesman said that a decision had been taken to kill all of Fatah’s leading officials, who he referred to as “dogs beholden to their Israeli masters.”
Hamas has distributed a list of at least 30 Fatah officials it seeks to have killed for complicity, they say, in a US-backed plan to topple Hamas. The first name is senior Fatah terrorist Mohammed Dahlan, who holds the position of National Security Adviser in the Fatah-Hamas PA unity government. He has been hiding out in Egypt for the past two months. Many of the other Fatah men on the list have fled Gaza.
Hamas took over nearly all Fatah positions in Gaza and confiscated thousands of rifles, tons of ammunition and armored jeeps and APCs supplied by the US, Egypt and Israel over the years.
Eight Fatah men were killed Wednesday morning defending the home of senior Fatah official Mahr Mekhdad – who escaped the fighting. About 200 Hamas terrorists surrounded the home of Yassir Arafat confidant Nabil Shaath – shooting one of his body guards.
PA reports say 15 were injured in Wednesday’s clashes – five civilians. More than 25 people were killed in Tuesday’s clashes totaling more than 66 in recent days.
Tuesday night, senior Fatah commander Jamal Abu Jadian tried to escape a Hamas siege on his northern Gaza home, dressed as a Muslim woman, in full hijab. He took refuge in a nearby hospital, but was spotted by Hamas terrorists, who pumped more than 40 bullets into his head with automatic rifles. He died from the assault.
A close ally of Dahlan’s, Abu Jadian is the third senior Fatah commander to be gunned down in recent clashes.
Hamas has completely taken control of northern Gaza, declaring it closed to members of the Fatah-loyal PA forces. In central Gaza, Hamas took over Fatah Presidential Guard positions with hardly any resistance. A Fatah position controlling Gaza’s main road was also seized and destroyed. The only Fatah presence remaining in Gaza is a few positions in Gaza City.
Fatah terrorists fired an RPG (rocket-propelled grenade) at the home of Hamas’s deputy Information Minister Tuesday, setting it on fire.
PA Foreign Minister Ziad Abu Amr said that the clashes between Fatah and Hamas could be expected to spread to Judea and Samaria as well. Shooting between Fatah and Hamas terrorists has already been reported in Shechem.
Both Fatah’s Mahmoud Abbas and Hamas’s Ismail Haniyeh called for an end to fighting Tuesday. Both had their homes and offices targeted by rival terrorists and the calls of both have been ignored. Abbas called Hamas’s attacks a “bloody coup.”
Fatah has decided to “suspend its participation in the national unity government until the fighting stops,” said a statement following a Fatah session in Ramallah Tuesday.
No news specials. No interruption of daily life here in America. This is not even the leading news story of the day. Paris Hilton has that honor. Hamas barbarians have taken full control of the Arab Palestinian Government. It is the Iranian backed terror organization which will now rule any future Palestinian State the Road Map might establish. Israel should expel all of Hamas from not only the Gaza, but Judah and Samaria. Hitler himself would be no greater threat to the Jewish State then is Hamas. The Jews have the military power to accomplish the task, but the liberal political government now in power will never do what is needed for Jewish survival. They will instead sit on their hands as the rockets rain down on Jewish civilian centers. Here in the United States the anti-war Democrats are demanding victory for their cause that they feel they won at the voting booths. Nothing is going to happen as Hamas goes out to conquer. Nothing is being talked about in the news now that Hamas has brutally taken full control over all the Arabs of Palestine. How could there ever have been peace in the last generation with the Nazis demanding the holocaust as the only final solution? The same holds true for Hamas in this generation! This is Islamic democracy in all its glory. The people vote, and Hamas pumps bullets into the heads of any who would resist their uncompromising anti-Jewish rule.
Now, for certain the Road Map must be abandoned! These brutal barbarians must never be allowed to establish a forever State in the Holy Land. Their blood lust for Jewish blood must not be allowed. The only answer is their expulsion into the Islamic world from where they found all their nurture. They will never ever be good neighbors to the Jews. They will never ever submit to a Jewish King who will rule the Holy Land. Their true character has been revealed. They have been weighed and found lacking any qualities that would lift them above the category of the wild beast. They who have lived by the sword now earned the same response. The last generation did the right thing to the Nazis who lived by the same sword. This generation has a different code. A liberal bend that blurs the vision. A pride that thinks all problems can be solved by human wit without any consideration of God.
Friend, God is forcing Himself on this generation. He began by establishing this miraculous Third Exodus. He knew the barbarians would stand in His way, but He will not be turned back. The die is cast. Dispensational change is coming to planet earth. The Church Age is ending, and the Jewish Kingdom Age is about to begin. All who resist God are doomed to perish should they not be capable of repentance. Islam is being tested as to their ability to repent. Evangelicalism is being tested as to their commitment to the Road Map. You are being tested as to whether you can repent, and come to Christ right now. The book seems closed already on the world and religion. Repentance is predicted in the Bible for only a remnant. The masses are predicted to reject Christ. The Great Tribulation reveals the judgments coming because they will not repent. What about you? Jesus Christ fulfilled all the Bible prophecy concerning the promised Jewish Messiah when He came the first time. He died at Calvary as the only single acceptable atonement for sin as the Bible said He would. He shed His precious blood for you dear friend. He loves you, and knows you can't save yourself. It is His blood that is acceptable to the Holy God of the Bible for the remission of sin. The requirement is that you must come to Christ for forgiveness. Here He will not force you to be saved. It is your decision to either accept, or reject this Christ of the Bible. Friend, won't you come to Him right now? Won't you receive Christ as your Savior?
12But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:
18Who is a God like unto thee, that pardoneth iniquity, and passeth by the transgression of the remnant of his heritage? he retaineth not his anger for ever, because he delighteth in mercy.
19He will turn again, he will have compassion upon us; he will subdue our iniquities; and thou wilt cast all their sins into the depths of the sea.
20Thou wilt perform the truth to Jacob, and the mercy to Abraham, which thou hast sworn unto our fathers from the days of old.

PA Government Dissolved, Abbas to Declare 'State of Emergency'
by Nissan Ratzlav-Katz
(IsraelNN.com) Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas (Abu Mazen), the head of Fatah, announced on Thursday night that he is dissolving thegovernment of the PA. By dismissing the PA's legislative head, Ismail Haniyeh, and other Hamas officials, Abbas formally ended the power-sharing agreement between Hamas and Fatah. The agreement had been in effect for just a few months and was marked by intermittent violence between the two groups from the start.
A spokesman for Abbas, Tayeb Abdel-Rahim, said, "The President is determined to go back to the Palestinian public, when the situation allows that." Abu Mazen is intending to form a new government, Abdel-Rahim explained.
US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice called Abbas and expressed her government's support for the forces of Fatah, which she defined as "moderate."
Earlier in the day, the Islamist Hamas terrorist group completed its takeover of Gaza, sending the surviving local Fatah leaders fleeing across the border to Egypt and by boat into the Mediterranean Sea. In what was the Fatah-run General Security Services building in Gaza City, Hamas gunmen claimed to have found documents proving strong ties between Fatah and the United States Central Intelligence Agency. Spokesmen for Hamas said they would show the documents on local television on Thursday night.
All "Fatah traitors" who refuse to surrender to will be killed, a Hamas spokesman recently made clear. Hamas gave Fatah gunmen a Friday deadline to turn over all their weapons, but Fatah terrorists have been blowing up their own weapons caches and headquarters in various parts of Gaza to prevent their falling into Hamas's hands.
The Executive Committee of the PLO recommended that Abbas ask for international protection against Hamas. During a meeting in Ramallah on Thursday, the committee authorized Abbas "to take whatever decision he judges appropriate," according to one committee member. Abbas said he plans to declare a state of emergency in Hamas-controlled Gaza.
In Judea and Samaria, Fatah gunmen arrested dozens of Hamas activists during the day Thursday. According to spokesmen of Abbas's Fatah, the sweeping arrests were for the detainees' own protection. PLO leaders wanted "to protect the Hamas activists from angry Fatah members," they said.
Senior Fatah terrorist Abu Udai, however, seemed to disagree, telling the Bethlehem-based Maan news service that "Hamas is now a legally prohibited movement... Its activities are banned, and Hamas members will be punished if they participated in any Hamas activity." On Tuesday, Abu Udai threatened to "wipe out the entire leadership and all the activists of Hamas in the West Bank."
Let me remind everyone that Fatah and Hamas are both terrorist organizations. They were both founded on the same premise, and that is the extermination of the Jews from the Holy Land. The fact that Fatah lies, and tells the West what we want to hear is of little consequence in the end. Never in the history of diplomacy has there been such kissing up to such a barbarous group as Fatah. Nothing could be more blasphemous then to offer Fatah an independent forever State in the Holy Land. The diplomats of this generation have painted a false picture of Fatah, and now I'm sure they will do the same for Hamas. The truth is the Palestinian Arabs do not want even to lie about peace with Israel. The Palestinian Arabs want every Jew slaughtered like animals in a butcher shop. The fools of this generation gave Islam the Gaza telling everyone that this is a peace initiative. All that came out of the withdrawal was the raining down of rockets on Jewish civilian centers. The next peace initiative is going to be the West Bank. Biblically the West Bank is Judah and Samaria. With Judah will go most of Jerusalem, and with most of Jerusalem will go Jewish sovereignty over the Temple Mount. Folks, nothing could be more an act of spiting in the face of God by this generation then the giving to the barbarians Jerusalem and the Temple Mount! We of this generation as well crucify Christ once again as give the seat of His coming Kingdom to the heathen!
Condoleezza Rice is quickly moving to get the West Bank into the hands of Fatah before Hamas takes control as they already have in Gaza. A Jewish withdrawal must be accomplished quickly, or the blasphemous Road Map will never be able to be implemented. The phone call to Abbas most certainly has something to do with how the Road Map can proceed under these impossible conditions. The great liar Abbas who is a holocaust denier, and even wrote a book to that subject has lost the Gaza, and dissolved the government. His only stronghold is now the West Bank. The diplomats of this generation must move fast if they want to implement the Road Map. Hamas is not going to wait long before they take control of both Judah and Samaria. God is forcing the Jews into action. They must either militarily remove the terrorists from Judah and Samaria which is now Jewish, or lose all of the Holy Land to the heathen. God used the Babylonians to dissolve a corrupted Jewish government of the past. Today, He is using Hamas to so embrace the liberal Olmert government that it must act against the Islamic barbarians.
A great evil has been dissolved today. A greater evil is in the sights of Biblical judgment. A Kingdom is coming from which all evil will be dissolved. The LORD Jesus Christ is coming again to the Holy Land, Jerusalem, and Mount Zion. Biblical righteousness will reign on planet earth. Friend, have you come to this Biblical Christ for salvation? Only you can make the decision to accept, or reject the perfect sacrifice He made for sin on Calvary. You must come to Him! It is the only way to be saved. It has nothing to do with religion. It has everything to do with truth, and the light coming into a world of darkness. Friend, won't you come to this Christ, and live?

Pride parade protests turn violent
Hundreds of Jewish ultra-orthodox protesters turned out yesterday in Jerusalem and in a Tel-Aviv suburb to demonstrate against the planned Jerusalem gay pride parade, scheduled for next Thursday. Protesters set traffic bins aflame, threw garbage on the road, and stoned a bus in demonstrations that resemble the violent protests of last year. This morning, four orthodox men were arrested for throwing stones at police forces in Jerusalem. In the background of the Jerusalem parade controversy, the port city of Haifa held its first ever gay pride parade yesterday. Some 300 participants took part in the march, which was largely uneventful. The event in Jerusalem was scaled down last year and held in an enclosed arena following weeks of violent demonstrations against the planned march.
It is the liberal Olmert government that is shoving gay pride down the throats of the Orthodox Jews. Everything was fine as long as the gays stayed in the liberal areas of Tel Aviv and marched. That was not good enough for these perverts. They wanted to be in your face, and so they expanded their gay parade into the conservative neighborhoods of Jerusalem. Decadence and nudity was rampant as is the case in every gay pride parade. Gays are sold out to sexual perversion, and their parades reflect the truth of what gay pride is all about. Leather suited perverts wielding whips, and sex toys are always highlighted in every gay pride parade. The news media is already under orders from the liberals not to publish the bad stuff. That is categorized as being a gay basher if a reporter should report the truth.
The goal of the gays in Jerusalem is to wave their gentilities in the face of God, and any who would stand with God on moral issues. This bold, in your face, aggression brings out the worst in people, and the Orthodox Jews are no exception. It is just not the Orthodox, but many secular Jews with common decency are also offended by such bold perversion. I know the judgment of God on such perverts who join the Islamic perverts with similar desires reflected in their concept of the Islamic sexually perverted Paradise are all going to spend eternity in forever torment. God is not one to be mocked. The gay pride parade in Jerusalem is no little matter. It .0reflects the direction Israel is going. The Jews of this generation can stand with the worst generations recorded in the Bible. The earth opened up and swallowed similar Jews of past generations.
It is sad that at this time of great anxiety over what is happening in Gaza the Jewish gays should be pushing their perverted selfish agenda. It is sad that the heathen have a higher standard then the Jews of today when it comes to homosexuality. It would be wrong to follow the barbarians in their dealing with homosexuality, but it is just as wrong to be nether cold or hot over the issue. A lukewarm attitude will only cause one to be spued from the mouth of God.
Friend, if you do not have a testimony of being born again you are no better then the worst gay person who will be part of this coming parade. Every day you go through life rejecting Christ is a day you wave your defiance in the very face of God. The Bible teaches "born again" is not an option. It is a command! God has placed the responsibility on you dear friend. Christ has paid the price of your sin at Calvary, but it is up to you to accept the sacrifice that He made. You must come! Christ is the only Savior. There is none other to which you can go. Dear friend, stop defiling God. Come to Christ, and live!
7Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again.

"Moderate" Abbas Executes Man Without Trial and Attacks Others
by Tzvi Ben Gedalyahu
(IsraelNN.com) Palestinian Authority (PA) Chairman Mahmoud Abbas unleashed his party's Al Aksa Martyrs Brigades terrorist militia Friday, executing one person without trial and wounding and arresting dozens of others. Al Aksa said it murdered a 32-year-old Hamas loyalist from Shechem in retaliation to Hamas assassinations of Fatah terrorists in Gaza.
The bloodshed spread to Tulkarm, east of Netanya, where masked Fatah terrorists sprayed fire indiscriminately and torched a Hamas office, according to the Bethlehem-based Ma'an news agency.
Abbas' terrorists also kidnapped a grocery store owner in Tulkarm, shot at two buses, set fire to a Hamas charity office and to stores and raided homes.
The US State Department said it will continue to train Abbas' elite Presidential Guard militia. American Middle East military envoy Lt. Gen. Keith Dayton said last week that reports of Hamas forces being superior to those of American-trained Fatah were incorrect. He and US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice recently convinced American Congressmen to approve more than $60 million to help equip the Fatah militia despite the danger that Hamas might confiscate its weapons.
Hamas confiscated on Thursday and Friday a huge arsenal of rifles, grenades, ammunition and American armored personnel vehicles in Gaza. Hamas terrorists paraded in the streets of Gaza and showed off the weapons while hundreds of Fatah fighters fled to Egypt.
The State Department hurried to Abbas' side after Hamas devastated Fatah in Gaza. Secretary of State Rice said: "President Abbas has exercised his lawful authority ... We fully support him."
She telephoned Abbas to "underline the United States support for [him and] for the Palestinian moderates who have made the commitment to work with the Israeli government," said State Department spokesman Sean McCormack.
McCormack referred to Abbas and his supporters as "advocates...with whom we are going to work.... Make no mistake about it, that the way to achieve a Palestinian state, is via the negotiating table. It is never going to be achieved via the use of violence, threats, intimidation or terrorism.... The strategy is to help build up functioning, effective, legitimate institutions of a future Palestinian state." McCormack deflected reporters' doubts about the extent of Abbas's power.
David Makovsky of the Washington Institute for Near East Policy, stated: "The people who are moderate are not effective, and the people who are effective are not moderate."
Local commentators note little difference between Fatah and Hamas with regards to their designs to perpetrate attacks against Israel. It was Fatah under Yasser Arafat which signed the Oslo Accords. In the framework of the agreement, Israel authorized the transfer of thousands of rifles to Fatah, but the Israeli government documented their use in fatal terrorist attacks against Israeli civilians and soldiers.
Both Fatah and Hamas demand the right of more than five million Arabs to immigrate to Israel as descendants of half a million Arabs who fled Israel in 1948.
One major difference between the two groups is that Fatah is a secular party. The Arabic meaning of its name is "conquest," and the word "Fatah" is also a reverse acronym for the Arabic term for the Palestinian Liberation Movement.
Another apparent difference is that Abbas outwardly accepts a two-state solution including Israel. But in practice, PA schools under his authority teach children that all of Israel is "Palestine."
The State Department has maintained that Abbas' statements are only a prelude to negotiations, but the Hamas takeover in Gaza and Hamas claims that Fatah leaders are linked with the United States will make it harder for him to live up to his "moderate" image.
It is over in the Gaza. Hamas is in full control. Abbas has fled to the West Bank, and the Palestinian Authority founded by Arafat has been forever dissolved. Stupid is the only word I can think of for the US diplomats who are fixed on keeping the Road Map two State Holy Land peace plan alive. The Palestinian Arabs do not want peace! They want to exterminate the Jews. They have the entire Islamic world behind them. The Arabs voted for Hamas in the last democratic election held in Gaza, and now they have their desired results. Only a fool would think the same is not going to happen in the West Bank should Abbas set up a government there. The Arabs of the West Bank hate the Jews as much as the Arabs of Gaza. The West Bank Arabs do not want Abbas. They want Hamas. They want to forever terrorize the Jews. They kill and murder each other with the same seared consciences that they nurtured among their children to kill and murder innocent Jews. These are the barbarians! They strap on suicide belts thinking they will go to a sexually perverted Islamic paradise. It is a lie, but it is truth to a barbarian. They are wild beasts who have no conscience. They do not just kill, but rip and tare. They slit the throat, and cut off the head. This is the culture the Road Map would concede almost all of the Holy Land, Jerusalem, and full control over the Temple Mount. These are an unproductive people that live on perpetual welfare. They expect the barbarian tribute, and the Road Map is what we of the West are offering them. The problem is they will not accept it. They want blood. Jewish blood is all that will suffice. Yet, the politicians blinded by their own pride in their own wit keep offering them the same rejected package.
Islam teaches a religion of pride. All others are infidels. Any non-Moslem is looked upon as a worthless piece of dung. It is hard for them to see the mostly Christian/Jewish West having all the power in the world today. Islam could be squashed in a moment, and so they must take care. They now see the time is right. They see the hands of the West tied by political ineptness. The Olmert government in Israel, and the Democratic victory in the Congress have opened the door. They see the time is right to push the Jews out of the Holy Land. They see the time is right to push the Americans out of Iraq. They will be relentless. They have raised this generation to challenge the God of the Bible over the Holy Land. They are prepared as ever can be to rid themselves of the Christians and Jews. The objective is to place the Koran of the barbarians above the Bible.
This may be fine with the politicians, but it is not fine with God. He is preparing to bring in the Jewish Kingdom Age with the return of the LORD Jesus Christ as the coming Jewish King of Glory. There is no room in the Holy Land for the heathen. There is no room for religion. There is no room for government. There is only room for Christ, and those who are totally submitted to His rule. His righteousness is the righteousness revealed in the Bible. Perfect holiness will be the standard far higher then any puritanical concepts of the past. Friend, are you ready for such a transition? Is your heart desirous of such perfection here on earth? Jesus made the only perfect sacrifice acceptable to a Holy God. He died at Calvary so sin could be atoned. He shed His blood so that our sin could be forgiven. Friend, the onus is on us to come to Christ, and receive the gift He offers through grace. Those who do not come reject His free offer. They are just too proud to be saved. How about you? How important is your pride? Come to Christ, and live! The longsuffering of God has limits. Do not be counted among the wicked when judgment comes.

Abbas PA Gov't Sworn In, Haniyeh Denies He's Out
by Hana Levi Julian
(IsraelNN.com) A new, Fatah-led Palestinian Authority government was sworn into power on Sunday – in PA-controlled areas of Judea and Samaria. But Hamas still rules the new, Fatah-free Gaza.
Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas swore in an “emergency government” in the Samarian city of Ramallah on Sunday, installing 11 new ministers who are to serve for as long as the PA chairman deems it necessary. According to the PA chairman’s aide, Nabil Amar, all of the new ministers are “independent technocrats”,
The ceremony took place a day after Mr. Abbas issued a decree allowing the formation of a government without prior approval from the Palestinian Legislative Council. The PA chairman had already officially dissolved the Hamas-Fatah “unity government”, led by Hamas Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh, last Thursday.
The emergency government will be led by newly-appointed Prime Minister Salem Fayyad, a professional economist and finance minister in the previous PA government, whose bank account was used to channel foreign aid into Fatah-controlled PA coffers. According to media reports, Mr. Fayyad will keep his job as finance minister and will also take on the additional role of foreign minister.
Abdul Razek al-Yihya was sworn in as the new Interior Minister. Mr. al-Yihya served as interior minister in the PLO government of the late Yasser Arafat and was involved in negotiations with Israel.
The new interior minister faces an uphill battle, having to coordinate security and civilian affairs in the PA-controlled areas of Judea and Samaria, while trying to resurrect the Fatah-linked security forces – the few that remain – in Gaza.
The rest of the Fatah-appointed PA cabinet ministers are as follows:
Riyad al-Maliki – Justice and Information Minister.
Ziyad al-Bandak – Municipal Affairs Minister.
Ashraf al-Ajarmi – Prisoners, Youth and Sports Minister.
Kamel al-Hasuna – Communications, Economy and Public Works Minister.
Hulud Deibas – Tourism and Women’s Affairs Minister.
Namis el-Alami – Education Minister.
Samir Abdullah – Planning Minister.
Fat’hi Abu Marli – Health Minister.
Jamal Bawatna – Religious Affairs Minister.
Mr. Bawatna is also the mufti of the Ramallah district.
Mashhur Abu Dakka – Transportation Minister.
Who Rules the PA – and in Which Area?
Mr. Abbas declared that the new emergency government has authority in Judea and Samaria and in Gaza. He also announced Sunday he was outlawing the Islamist Hamas terrorist organization and disbanding its armed militia.
Fatah security men have been attacking Hamas-linked stores and other buildings in Judea and Samaria, burning several of them, since last week. The incidents have taken place primarily in the Samaria cities of Ramallah and Shechem.
Local residents said that Fatah members kidnapped several Hamas men last week in Shechem. There were also reports over the weekend that Fatah security men executed a resident for allegedly collaborating with Israel. It was not clear whether the man was associated with Hamas, although it seemed unlikely.
Hamas issued a statement in response to the attacks, accusing Fatah of “ethnic cleansing” against its members. Fatah spokesman Abu Odai responded by charging Hamas with trying to divert attention from Gaza, where he said Hamas had “murdered 400 Fatah activists.”
Hamas has led the government after being elected by Palestinian Authority residents to take the helm in a landslide victory at the polls in the PA elections held in January 2006.
Mr. Haniyeh insists that mandate is still in force.
The deposed prime minister issued a statement saying “The national unity government asserts here that we are fulfilling our duty according to the law.”
Mr. Haniyeh’s words were echoed by Hamas representative Abu Osama Abd el-Moti, stationed in Iran, who promised that the “resistance” to Israel’s presence “will get stronger.” Mr. el-Moti added that “Hamas has no intention of establishing a government in the Gaza Strip, and responding to Israel’s and Fatah’s dictates.”
Hamas is insisting that the new Fatah emergency government is irrelevant, the result of an American-Israeli conspiracy, calling it “the peak of illegal political thuggery.”
Spokesman Ismail Radwan told reporters, “The Islamic Resistance Movement considers this government illegitimate and illegal. We will not work with it.”
Nonetheless, there were glimmers on Sunday that Mr. Haniyeh has begun to realize the party’s over, dismissing several senior officers in the PA security forces in Gaza. Kamal el-Sheikh, chief of the PA police was one of the first to go, as was the commander of the Preventive Security Services, Rashid Abu Shabak, who had already seen the writing on the wall and tendered his resignation last month.
The flood is on to support Abbas, and his Fatah government in Samaria and Judah as the only Palestinian Arabs willing to make peace with Israel. What a joke! His first official act is to execute (no trial) a citizen of Shechem for collaborating with the Jews. How can you make peace when an immediate death sentence hangs over anyone who would dare talk with a Jew? This is truly an illegal government. Abbas just walks into Judah and Samaria decreeing without any authority, and a new government emerges. The Jews still have the sovereignty over Judah and Samaria. Abbas just murdered a citizen for whom the Jews are responsible. He should be hauled into Jewish Court, and charged with murder. That would be the right thing to do, but the politicians are not interested in what is right. All they are concerned about is keeping the Road Map alive. Abbas would never have declared a new government in Judah and Samaria if he did not have the okey dokey from the Bush administration. The call from Condoleezza Rice yesterday I'm sure was the basis for his bold move. Olmert is running to Washington this very moment to be lectured by Bush himself on saving the Road Map. Hamas is too proud to take a Palestinian State as a gift from the Jews. They will only take through conquest. The politicians have no Arab group with whom to give Judah and Samaria with most of Jerusalem for a capital, and full sovereignty over the Temple Mount. That is unless they can quickly make the new Abbas government the recipient. They must do this before Hamas takes control of Judah and Samaria as they have already done in Gaza. The Palestinian Arabs are in a landslide favoring Hamas over Fatah. It will not be long if the Jews withdraw from Judah and Samaria that Hamas will do the same as they have done in Gaza. The hand writing is on the wall!
Folks, God is displeased with this blasphemous Road Map being pushed by both the Olmert government, and our Evangelical White House! God has closed the door! The politicians are set like flint to oppose God, and open the door once again. They have put all their eggs in this one single basket. There is no other peace plan for the Holy Land. Folks, if ever there was a phony peace plan, this Road Map is it! Olmert dedicated his whole term in office to the Road Map. Bush dedicated his entire second term in office to the Road Map charging Condoleezza Rice to get it done. Now, they all have egg on their faces, and none will back down.
Friend, I pray you can back down. I pray you are not beyond repentance. The LORD Jesus Christ loves you, and died at Calvary to be the only acceptable atonement for sin. Salvation is freely offered to you this very moment. The only thing you need do is back down, and admit you are worthy of judgment and condemnation for your sin. Friend, you must repent if you are to enter into the coming Kingdom Christ is now preparing to establish in the Holy Land, at Jerusalem, and on Mount Zion. Won't you come to Christ for forgiveness? Won't you come to Christ, and be saved?
18Come now, and let us reason together, saith the Lord: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.
19If ye be willing and obedient, ye shall eat the good of the land:
20But if ye refuse and rebel, ye shall be devoured with the sword: for the mouth of the Lord hath spoken it.

The U.S. is planning to end its embargo against funding and other aid to the Palestinian Authority – in Judea and Samaria. Gaza is not included.
The Bush administration wants to send more guns to Fatah, to replace those they surrendered to Hamas after losing the PA civil war in Gaza.
Report: Hamas Told Egypt 'It Was Us or Al Qaeda'
(IsraelNN.com) Syrian-based Hamas leader Khaled Ma'ashal warned Egypt that Al Qaeda would take over Gaza if the Fatah faction were to stay in power, according to the London-based Arabic daily Al Quds. It said that Hamas gave Egypt several days notice of the overthrow of Fatah in Gaza.
The newspaper also reported that Israel informed Hamas that if it halts Kassam rocket attacks and frees kidnapped IDF soldier Gilad Shalit, the government will remove the economic blockade.
What we have in the Holy Land is three rotten apples all vying for absolute power: Al Qaeda, Hamas, and Fatah. The Road Map wants to give any of them, or even all of them most of the Holy Land under the false belief that they will then be pacified. The problem is that two of the three say boldly they will never accept a gift from the Jews even if it is most of the Holy Land. All three are on record as intent on exterminating the Jews of Israel, but only Fatah is willing to lie to the West about a willingness to make peace with the Jews. It is a flat lie which is never repeated in Arabic. The words of peace are only made in English for Western gullible consumption.
Today Bush and Olmert are having an emergency meeting to manipulate the survival of Fatah. The Arab Palestinians want no part of the liars who also lied to them as they formulated a government based on corruption. Fatah became rich on Western aid all on the backs of the Palestinian Arab people. What the Arab Palestinians want is to forever boldly terrorize the Jewish people with no intent to ever have peace. That is why Hamas won the landslide victory of the last democratic elections held in Gaza.
It is a terrible decision for the politicians to support the continuance of Fatah for the sake of the Road Map. This PA government was officially dissolved when Abbas fled Gaza. All agree the government Abbas decreed in Samaria is a new government. The old Palestinian Authority is now relegated to the dung heap of history. It is the bastard child of that murdering Arafat who introduced the world to airliner hijacking. Good reddens to the birth place of modern barbarian terrorism. Yet, here is the Bush and Olmert governments doing all they can to revive the left-overs of the Palestinian Authority in the Holy Land. It is Judah and Samaria where Abbas now claims he is king following the filthy corrupted line established by Arafat. It is the Holy Land that the Bush and Olmert administrations want to give to the barbarians for a forever welfare State dedicated to terror. The money and arms necessary for this future heathen State is about to flow. The end will be to place the worst culture in the world directly in the path where the Bible says the LORD Jesus Christ is going to come to establish His Jewish Kingdom. This is a direct attempt by the politicians in their ignorance to place a stumbling stone in the path of the returning Christ. The returning Jewish Messiah who will not be deterred by the stupidity of today's politicians.
Friend, are you ready for Christ? Have you been washed clean from sin by His blood? Are you saved for all eternity through the power of His word?
6Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

FROM WND'S JERUSALEM BUREAU
Christians warned: Accept Islamic law
'New Hamas rule means real changes,' missionaries to be 'dealt with harshly'
Posted: June 19, 2007
1:00 a.m. Eastern
By Aaron Klein
JERUSALEM – Christians can continue living safely in the Gaza Strip only if they accept Islamic law, including a ban on alcohol and on women roaming publicly without proper head coverings, an Islamist militant leader in Gaza told WND in an exclusive interview.
The militant leader said Christians in Gaza who engage in "missionary activity" will be "dealt with harshly."
The threats come two days after a church and Christian school in Gaza was attacked following the seizure of power in the territory by the Hamas terror group.
" I expect our Christian neighbors to understand the new Hamas rule means real changes. They must be ready for Islamic rule if they want to live in peace in Gaza," said Sheik Abu Saqer, leader of Jihadia Salafiya, an Islamic outreach movement that recently announced the opening of a "military wing" to enforce Muslim law in Gaza.
Jihadia Salafiya is suspected of attacking a United Nations school in Gaza last month, after the school allowed boys and girls to participate in the same sporting event. One person was killed in that attack.
"The situation has now changed 180 degrees in Gaza," said Abu Saqer, speaking from Gaza yesterday.
"Jihadia Salafiya and other Islamic movements will ensure Christian schools and institutions show publicly what they are teaching to be sure they are not carrying out missionary activity. No more alcohol on the streets. All women, including non-Muslims, need to understand they must be covered at all times while in public," Abu Asqer told WND.
"Also the activities of Internet cafes, pool halls and bars must be stopped," he said. "If it goes on, we'll attack these things very harshly."
Abu Saqer accused the leadership of the Gaza Christian community of "proselytizing and trying to convert Muslims with funding from American evangelicals."
"This missionary activity is endangering the entire Christian community in Gaza," he said.
Abu Saqer claimed there was "no need" for the thousands of Christians in Gaza to maintain a large number of institutions in the territory.
About 2,000 Christians live in the Gaza Strip, which has a population of over 1 million.
Abu Saqer said Hamas "must work to impose an Islamic rule or it will lose the authority it has and the will of the people."
His comments come after gunmen Sunday attacked Gaza's Latin Church and adjacent Rosary Sisters School, reportedly destroying crosses, bibles, pictures of Jesus and furniture and equipment. The attackers also stole a number of computers.
The attack was the first targeting of Christian institutions since Hamas last week staged a coup against the rival Fatah party of Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas, seizing all Fatah positions and security compounds, essentially taking complete control of the Gaza Strip.
Hamas officials in Gaza claimed to WND Fatah was behind Sunday's church attack in an attempt to discredit Hamas to the international community.
Abu Saqer claimed he had "good information" the attack actually was a robbery aimed at the church's school computers, even though Bibles and Christian holy objects were destroyed.
Christians, secular institutions targeted
Israel evacuated the Gaza Strip in 2005. Since then, there have been a slew of attacks there against Christians and non-Muslims.
A month before the U.N. school was targeted, Palestinians bombed a Christian book store in Gaza reportedly funded by American Protestants that exclusively sold Christian books. Two nearby Internet cafes also were bombed.
At the time, Abu Saqer, who didn't take credit for the attack, told WND the Christian bookstore was "proselytizing and attempting to convert our people."
"As a principle, we believe that Jews and Christians will always do everything in order to keep Muslims far from their religion," Abu Saqer said.
Even before Hamas took over Gaza last week, some analysts here called the recent bombings of secular and Christian institutions in the territory indications Hamas may be seeking to impose Islamic rule on the Palestinian population.
Israeli officials said Hamas in 2005 established hard-line Islamic courts and created the Hamas Anti-Corruption Group, described as a kind of "morality police" operating within Hamas' organization. Hamas has denied the existence of the group, but it recently carried out a high-profile "honor killing" widely covered by the Palestinian media.
A Hamas-run council in the West Bank came under international criticism last year when it barred an open-air music and dance festival, declaring it was against Islam.
'West can learn from Islamic values'
In response to the uproar, Hamas chief in Gaza and former foreign minister Mahmoud al-Zahar told WND in a recent interview: "I hardly understand the point of view of the West concerning these issues. The West brought all this freedom to its people but it is that freedom that has brought about the death of morality in the West. It's what led to phenomena like homosexuality, homelessness and AIDS."
Asked if Hamas is seeking to impose hard-line Islamic law on the Palestinians, al-Zahar responded, "The Palestinian people are Muslim people, and we do not need to impose anything on our people because they are already committed to their faith and religion. People are free to choose their way of life, their way of dress and behavior."
Al-Zahar said his terror group, which demands strict dress codes for females, respects women's rights.
"It is wrong to think that in our Islamic society there is a lack of rights for women. Women enjoy their rights. What we have, unlike the West, is that young women cannot be with men and have relations outside marriage. Sometimes with tens of men. This causes the destruction of the family institution and the fact that many kids come to the world without knowing who are their fathers or who are their mothers. This is not a modern and progressed society," al-Zahar explained.
The terror chieftain told WND the West can learn from his group's Islamic values.
"Here I refer to what was said in the early '90s by Britain's Prince Charles at Oxford University. He spoke about Islam and its important role in morality and culture. He said the West must learn from Islam how to bring up children properly and to teach them the right values."
There is nothing worse then to be chastened by the barbarians. We must acknowledge that there is very little true Christian influence over Western culture anymore. We have the Rev. Jessie Jackson using Budweiser Beer to support a family business that made him a rich man in Chicago :
Jackson used his standard tactics to get the beer company to give his son a lucrative beer distributorship on the outskirts of Chicago.
(At one point, to hurt Budweiser, Jackson had encouraged African-Americans to quit drinking alcohol because of the harm it had done to the black community. But that stopped once his family got the distributorship.)
It is Jackson a thousand times over by today's Christianity that gives Hamas the right to make their accusations. The old time tea totaling fundamentalists would not put up with this kind of Christianity, but the lukewarm Evangelicals of this generation are silent. The decadence of teens shaking their bodies out of control at an Evangelical Christian rock concert only adds fuel to the charges made by Islam. Today's Christianity has long lost their respect for God, and it shows in their loss of respect for themselves. The loss of values is indicative to the loss of Christ-like character. Today's Christianity is long removed from the puritanical Christianity of the fundamentalists when Christ-likeness was prominent. Today puritanical and fundamentalist are considered dirty words by the Evangelical community. There is no desire to go back to those days of restricted freedom (freedom to sin). Today is the day when the heathen rightfully chasten us for our behavior.
The loss of sound Biblical doctrine is the root to all that is wrong with Christianity today. The TV Charismatics have taken over mainstream Christianity. Their influence has established the condition of this Laodecean Church that God says He would spue from His mouth. Mysticism and magic have replaced the real miracles found in the Bible. The masses ebb and flow with each new character rising to the top of this swill known as Christianity today. It is a sorry concoction that is being presented to the world. Israel in the past was given opportunity to repent, but if they rejected the chastening of God they were judged. I only wonder what will be the fate of this generation's Evangelicalism?
Oh, LORD Jesus come quickly!

EU Pledges 22 Million Euro to PA
(IsraelNN.com) The European Union announced Wednesday that it would be transferring 22 million Euro to the Palestinian Authority.
The aid was described as "part of the efforts to bolster the leadership of Mahmoud Abbas." Abbas, though he is head of the terrorist organization.
Fatah, is considered moderate by some Israelis.
Am I stupid? I thought it was perfectly clear that Abbas dissolved the Palestinian Authority last week? This new government he decreed from the West Bank city of Ramala has no other authority then his personal declaration. There was no voting. There was no endorsement from the former PA parliament. Abbas just did it all on his own. The land from where he made the declaration is not even Arab Palestinian land. It used to be Jordanian land before the 1967 Six Day War, but now it is all under Jewish sovereignty. This has to be one of the most illegal moves made in the last century, and yet the politicians throw away the law books on behalf of the barbarians.
How can the atheistic European Union give millions of dollars to an organization which has been officially dissolved? How can Bush and Olmert meet to ensure the survival of the Palestinian Authority when that government no longer exists? The right thing to do would be for Israel to withdraw once again as they did in the Gaza so there would be a land for which the Palestinian Arabs would have a claim. They would then need to go through the process of forming a government as is happening in Iraq. Elections would be a critical part of any nation building according to our Western values. This is never going to happen! The only way the Road Map can proceed is that there must be a Palestinian Arab government to which can be given most of the Holy Land for a forever State. Any election in the West Bank would probably end up in another landslide victory for Hamas as happened in Gaza. The politicians know a democratic election most probably will end the Road Map forever. Instead they are going to pretend like the Palestinian Authority still exists. It just moved from the Palestinian Arab controlled Gaza to the Israeli controlled Samaria and Judah.
Should the Jews do exactly the same thing the world would be in an uproar. Every law book would be opened, and searched for any little loophole that would prevent the Jews from controlling all of their Promised Land. What will happen when the LORD Jesus Christ returns, and makes His claims on this same Land?
Friend, the Bible says there will be no opposition on that day. Armageddon will have taken place, and all opposition will have been cast into the eternal punishment of hell. Where are you headed dear friend? The Bible tells us Jesus loves us all so much that He made a perfect sacrifice on Calvary so sin could be forgiven. He took our place, and the punishment due us was placed upon Him. He offers the gift of salvation freely, but it must be accepted. Friend, you must come to Christ for the forgiveness of your sin. Won't you come to Christ as a repentant sinner? He will not refuse any who will come with all their heart, all their soul, and all their might.

Parade Over, 12 Arrested
(IsraelNN.com) The Gay Pride Parade in Jerusalem ended on Thursday afternoon less than two hours after it began. A gathering and party scheduled to take place after the parade were cancelled due to a firefighters strike.
Approximately 2,000 people participated in the parade. They were protected by 7,000 police officers. At least 1,000 held an anti-parade protest in the city center, and many others protested elsewhere. 12 anti-parade protestors were arrested, and have been accused of harassing parade participants.

PLO Supports PA Gov't Without Hamas
by Hillel Fendel
(IsraelNN.com) Testimony from within Gaza belies the Hamas "reign of peace" claimed by a Hamas official in a New York Times op-ed.
The PLO, convening in Ramallah, has announced its support of the Fatah-led government of PA chairman and Fatah head Mahmoud Abbas. It also supports Abbas' proposal to establish an emergency government without Hamas. The Fatah chief has installed Salam Fayad as Prime Minister, and has halted the payment of salaries to public employees in Gaza.
Other decisions by the PLO governing board: a call for Abbas (Abu Mazen) to prepare for new elections for both Chairman and the Parliament, and support for the Fatah decision to disarm all armed groups in the PA, including Hamas and Fatah's Al-Aksa Brigades.
Hamas, on the other hand, does not recognize Abu Mazen's dismissal of Hamas leader Ismail Haniye as Prime Minister of the PA. It is trying to stabilize its rule in Gaza.
The division of the Palestinian Authority into two entities - Gaza and Judea/Samaria - thus becomes more of a fact, with two different governments shaping up. Gaza is now widely and informally known as Hamastan, and Judea/Samaria as Fatahland.
Hamas has threatened to publicize Fatah documents it uncovered during its sudden takeover ten days ago. The documents purportedly show that officials in the Abu Mazen administration cooperated with Israel in anti-terrorist and anti-Hamas actions.
Op-ed Paints Rosy - but Disputed - Picture
Though an op-ed article in The New York Times on Thursday, by Haniye's advisor Ahmed Yousef, maintains that Hamas is peace-loving and responsible, many do not agree.
Yousef writes, "From the day Hamas won the general elections in 2006, it offered Fatah the chance of joining forces and forming a unity government. It tried to engage the international community to explain its platform for peace. It has consistently offered a 10-year cease-fire with the Israelis to try to create an atmosphere of calm in which we resolve our differences... For 18 months we have tried to find ways to coexist with Fatah, entering into a unity government, even conceding key positions in the cabinet to their and international demands, negotiating up until the last moment to try to provide security for all of our people on the streets of Gaza... Eventually we were forced into trying to take control of a very dangerous situation in order to provide political stability and establish law and order. The streets of Gaza are now calm for the first time in a very long time. We have begun disarming some of the drug dealers and the armed gangs, and we hope to restore a sense of security and safety to the citizens of Gaza. We want to get children back to school, get basic services functioning again, and provide long-term economic gains for our people... Our sole focus is Palestinian rights and good governance. We now hope to create a climate of peace and tranquility within our community that will pave the way for an end to internal strife... We reject attempts to divide Palestine into two parts and to pass Hamas off as an extreme and dangerous force. We continue to believe that there is still a chance to establish a long-term truce. But this will not happen unless the international community fully engages with Hamas. .."
Others tell a very different story. The NFC news site quotes residents of Gaza who speak of a "regime of fear." Life has become impossible under the Hamas militias, they said. The site reports that hundreds of residents were forcibly removed from their homes and mosques on Wednesday night in order to take part in protest rallies against Abu Mazen. "We couldn't refuse," residents said, "because the Hamas forces would not have hesitated to murder us with the claim that we belonged to the Fatah revolutionaries."
In addition to their fear of expressing anti-Hamas opinions, the residents also are concerned that food and medicine supplies will run out within a number of days. Even fishermen are not allowed to fish past a certain distance from the shore.
Many can't wait to leave for Egypt. One man said, "We look forward to stability not in hope that Haniye's government will succeed, but just so that the crossings will open and we can get out of here... Hamas will try to survive despite international isolation, and we will become poverty cases in the name of the political struggle here."
Even Arab Knesset Member Muhammed Barakeh, speaking at the PLO meeting today, implied that Hamas was not working for the good of the Palestinian Authority people. He said that the main goal now is to "protect our nation fro m regional and international agendas that are disconnected from our national issues." Barakeh implied that Hamas was not working for a Palestinian state. Other Arab MKs said earlier this week and last that the Hamas violence during its takeover of Gaza had "put Palestinian nationalism tens of years behind," and called it "crimes against the Palestinian nation."
While the Jewish liberal government is demonstrating to the world how open-minded they are by allowing the gays to parade in Jerusalem, Hamas and Fatah prepare for the forever establishment of Hamastan and Fatahland. The city of Jerusalem is designated as the soon coming capital of Fatahland, but that will only last as long as the Islamic Arab people are prevented from voting for Hamas. What happened in the Gaza after the Israeli withdrawal will happen in Judah and Samaria once the Road Map is implemented there. The Jews of this generation now living in Israel have forfeited their God given right to the Holy City of Jerusalem. They sent out 7000 police to protect the gay pride parade, and arrest any who might be bold enough to protest this government's decision to allow the gays to parade in the conservative bastion of Jerusalem. The police should be arresting those Arabs who invaded from Gaza defying Jewish sovereignty over Judah and Samaria by proposing an Islamic Fatahland where Islamic law will reign replacing Biblical based law that now functions there. It is the Bush Evangelical White House, and the Olmert government that are doing everything in their power to establish Fatahland in the Holy Land. Our Evangelical White House is committing all the small arms Fatah might need to establish Fatahland through intimidation of any who might want to protest. The money is already flowing as the coffers are now opened wide to Abbas. Who they can't intimidate they will surly be able to buy off as they set the foundation for the forever Fatahland that would greet the LORD Jesus Christ when He returns.
What a present the Bush Administration is planning for our Lord's return. The persistence in keeping the Road Map going after God has so clearly shut the door is worse then what the liberal Jews are doing in Jerusalem. We live in very sad days. It is a cursed generation. We have an Evangelical White House that prides itself in daily Bible studies, and yet they are completely ignorant of what they do as being in opposition to God's plan in bringing about this miraculous Third Exodus. We have a Jewish government given the greatest of all blessings in 1967 when God gave them the Holy City of Jerusalem, but they can't work fast enough to give it away to the barbarians.
The politicians of the world are all in favor of turning the Holy Land into Fatahland. All know that Fatahland will become Hamastan very quickly, and no one cares! Oh foolish generation! The blessing for which Jerusalem always stood has been taken away by the wicked men among them. They treat Jerusalem as a cursed city of no value, and intend to give it to the sexual perverts of our day. They would give Jerusalem to be the capital of Fatahland, and later Hamastan. They would give it to the Islamic barbarians who teach their children that paradise is a place of sexual perversion, and Allah the god of the barbarians will reward them if they throw away their lives in sacrifice to him. There is no difference here between the sexually perverted homosexuals, and the sexually perverted Moslems. They are all an abomination to the Holy God of the Bible!
Friend, what about you? Will you also be declared an abomination for never having come to Christ for salvation?

Netanyahu Surprise: Bring Jordanian Troops into Yesha
by Hillel Fendel
(IsraelNN.com) Opposition leader Binyamin Netanyahu has expanded on his general call for Egyptian and Jordanian intervention in the PA, and says Jordan should send over its PLO brigade.
Speaking with Israeli reporters in
on Thursday, the former Prime Minister said that Fatah chief Abu Mazen cannot be expected to maintain law and order in Washington Judeaand on his own. He said that Samaria should dispatch its Palestinian force, known as the Badr Brigade. "The Badr Brigade, which is Jordanian-Palestinian, can create law and order," Netanyahu said. Jordan
is ruled by the Hashemite family, though much of its population is considered "Palestinian." Jordan
Ariel and Feiglin Respond
MK Uri Ariel (National Union) said, "We have already made the mistake of thinking there is a substitute for the IDF's presence. Wherever the IDF is, things are relatively quiet; and wherever the IDF has left, they shoot at us from there."
Moshe Feiglin, chairman of the Likud Party's Manhigut Yehudit (Jewish Leadership) faction, responded, "It is very sad that Netanyahu is reviving, via the back door, the Oslo illusion that Palestinian terrorists should protect the State of Israel against other Palestinian terrorists."
Instead of standing firm for the Likud's principles, and for those of the nationalist camp, Netanyahu remains a captive to the conceptions of Beilin and Peres," Feiglin said.
Netanyahu also said that
must be more forceful in manning its border with Egypt , where tons of arms and explosives have been smuggled in during the past two years. Shortly after Gaza quit Israel in the summer of 2005, it also left the Gaza Philadelphi Routeon the southern border in the hands of Egyptian and European Union monitors. Gaza
Netanyahu, who met in
with presidential candidates Hilary Clinton and Fred Thompson, earlier explained to CNN his position: "Palestinian society is not functional. On the one hand, it is ruled by extremist Islam and is supported by Washington , and on the other hand, it is led by a moderate but weak regime. The moderate elements must be strengthened... I think that [PA Chairman] Abu Mazen has good intentions. The fact that he called Hamas 'terrorists and murderers' is important... I hope that his recent statements indicate that he plans to fight terrorists wherever they are. Therefore, until he does this, we see that his leadership is too weak to take the Palestinians along a new path." Iran
Netanyahu said that in both
and Lebanon had created Iranian bases on its border by withdrawing unilaterally. "What's clear to me is that we must not make the same mistake in [ Gaza, Israel Judeaand ]. We must isolate Hamas and strengthen the moderates with the help of our neighbors.... It is clear to all that in the Samaria Middle Eastthere are extremists supported by and Al-Qaeda, and, on the other side, moderates. The Arab nations can already say clearly that extremist Islam is a common enemy to both themselves and Iran ." Israel
Shalom: They're Too Old
Netanyahu's party colleague MK Silvan Shalom, who does not hide his plans to challenge Netanyahu for leadership of the Likud, was quick to criticize the proposal. He opposes the idea not on ideological or strategic grounds, but rather because of the age of the Badr force members.
"The members of the Badr Brigade have been there for many years," Shalom said, "and they are not the ones to bring order, chase after Palestinians, confiscate weapons and arrest them. Expecting Palestinians to do the job against Palestinians is silly."
Olmert and Livni
Prime Minister Ehud Olmert is scheduled to hold a four-way summit next week with Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak, King Abdullah of Jordan, and Abbas (Abu Mazen).
Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni said this week that
refuses to calmly accept a situation of Hamas rule in Israel , "and we are therefore continuing to act militarily and diplomatically there." Gaza
Folks, I hate to keep reminding everyone that Netanyahu, the poster boy for conservatives who speaks in perfect American English, is just another politician! He certainly would be in a practical sense better then Olmert, but he is just another secular politician in his heart. He also wants to institute the Road Map. The only difference in his way of doing things is that he would not give the land away free, but would demand recompense from the Islamic Arabs. Don't be fooled. Netanyahu will give away Judah and Samaria just as fast as Olmert. He also would give most of Jerusalem as a capital for Fatahland, and though he may swear on the Bible that he would never relinquish Jewish sovereignty over the Temple Mount it would go in an instant for a peace agreement from any Palestinian Arab group. George Bush pulled the wool over our eyes with his Evangelical testimony. His adoption of the Russian invented Road Map was aimed to appease the Europeans who had already adopted it. This was fully political, and a slap in the face to the God of the Bible in the midst of this miraculous Third Exodus! God provided one of the great miracles for Israel in 1967 by giving the Jews of this generation both Jerusalem, and the Temple Mount. It is our Evangelical White House that pressured the former conservative Sharon to jump ship, and withdraw unilaterally from the Gaza. Today, our Evangelical White House is putting even greater pressure on Olmert to quickly bolster Abbas, and his future Fatahland so that Judah and Samaria can be the second stage of the failed Road Map withdrawal plan. We here in America are the greatest stumbling stone to what God is doing in the Holy Land! It is the lukewarm Evangelicals in love with our conservative President who by their silence are for all practical purposes holding a stop sign up to God. We are saying the Lord Jesus Christ can come again, but not now! Not in our generation. We want our democratic right that we might have the freedom to sin should we care to. We do not want the puritanical rule of Christ to upset our convenient life style. We are placing the worst barbarian culture in the world today as a greeting committee for Christ should He be so bold as to come on our watch. Fatahland will be Foreverland with most of Jerusalem recognized throughout the world as their forever capital. This is our answer to the Bible. This is our answer to the returning Christ! This is the Road Map of the politicians and Evangelicals. They have no other plan for peace in the Holy Land. It is the Road Map, or nothing. The politicians have all staked their political careers, and reputations on the Road Map. Nothing, not even God, will sway them from their blasphemous plan. The Holy Land will forever more be known as Fatahland should the Evangelical politicians of this generation get their way.
The solution to peace in the Holy Land will never ever come through the politicians no matter how religious their claims. Friend, only the LORD Jesus Christ has the power to bring about real peace. The Bible promises that that is exactly what Christ will do. It has already begun with this miraculous Third Exodus. Jesus is coming as the Biblical Jewish King of Glory to the Holy Land, Jerusalem, and Mount Zion. Nothing is going to stop Him! The politicians, and their dreams of Fatahland where the barbarian, and the innocent Jew play together is baloney. Wake up you Evangelical sluggards, and repent! It is the old time fundamentalists who always had it right. Their puritanical preaching, and living for Christ was far closer to the reality of the coming Kingdom Age then what you have produced.
Repent, for the Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!
Oh friend, won't you too repent? Won't you come to Christ, and live?

by Hana Levi Julian
(IsraelNN.com) Dozens of trucks carrying tons of food and medical supplies have entered Gaza since the Hamas terrorist organization took over the area. Another 400 tons were transferred via the Kerem Shalom border crossing on Thursday.
Included in the delivery were 130 tons of flour, 50 tons each of rice and sugar, 34 tons of pasta, 33 tons of lentils, 30 tons of margarine, 20 tons of beans, 18.5 tons of barley, 15 tons of chickpeas, 8 tons of powdered milk, 7 tons of astringents, 5 tons of tea, 2 tons of soup and thousands of liters of oil.
Jordan supplied the lion’s share of the basics – flour, legumes and oil – and international aid organizations provided the rest, to be distributed by their representatives to Palestinian Authority residents now being ruled by the Hamas terrorists.
Thousands of liters of gasoline, diesel fuel and natural gas supplies were delivered through the Nahal Oz terminal.
Tons of medical supplies were provided as well, and Red Cross surgeons were sent in to add their expertise to doctors working round the clock in Gaza hospitals. Medics also evacuated residents to Israel for specialized medical care.
And that’s only in Gaza.
Propping Up the PA in Judea and Samaria
U.S. officials have asked the Congress to restore $27 million in aid, to purchase more arms for PA Chairman and Fatah leader Mahmoud Abbas’ personal militia, Force 17.
The Defense Ministry is considering allowing the transfer of thousands of new weapons to Abbas’ forces as a “good will” gesture to prop up the new PA emergency government.
Officials explained Friday on Voice of Israel government radio that Abbas needs the weapons to replace the arsenal that was lost to Hamas terrorists who routed Fatah loyalists in Gaza over a week ago. Thousands of weapons and millions of bullets and other ammunition had been shipped to the PA militia by American allies Egypt and Jordan, with Israel’s full knowledge and approval.
The government will also transfer most, if not all, of the $700 million that remains of the tax revenues collected by Israel on behalf of the PA but withheld after Hamas won the legislative elections in January 2006.
Prime Minister Ehud Olmert has said he might also agree to dismantle numerous security checkpoints and roadblocks throughout Judea and Samaria as another “confidence building” measure.
Strategic Affairs Minister Avigdor Lieberman (Yisrael Beiteinu) objects to providing arms to Fatah. "It has been proven in the past that giving arms and money to Fatah serves to support terrorism," Lieberman said. "Even if we give guns to Abu Mazen, he has no ability and no chance."
The People's Choice
With the PLO backing Abbas in his bid to hold new elections, the latest polls indicate that the most popular leader in the PA is Marwan Barghouti, now serving five life sentences in a Negev prison for murder.
That Barghouti must be released in any prisoner swap deal for IDF Cpl. Gilad Shalit, kidnapped a year ago by Hamas terrorists, is the one point both Fatah and Hamas have agreed on this year.
Barghouti masterminded more than 30 terrorist attacks against Israeli citizens, in which some 35 were killed. Sufficient evidence was found to convict him of only five murders, however. Prime Minister Olmert has said he will not free Barghouti, even at the expense of Shalit’s freedom.
But if PA elections were to be held today, Marwan Barghouti would be the people’s choice to lead them.
It is very hard for me to read the news from Israel, and not get discouraged. I am legally blind having slight sight in only one eye, but the Jews under Olmert are totally blind spiritually as is our own Evangelical White House. It is beyond reason that all of this support is flowing to sustain the worst culture of our generation. The entire world is of one accord, and that is to have Fatahland greet the LORD Jesus Christ when He returns. The politicians of this generation would have a little Islamic Arabic child embrace Christ with a suicide bomb on His entrance to the Holy Land.
This Palestinian future Statehood known as Fatahland should be left to crumble under it's own corruption as should Hamastan in Gaza. Humanitarian treatment is an enigma to these modern day barbarians. They nurtured a generation on hate, and it has become a perpetual welfare State that expects the barbarian tribute. There is no such thing as good will to, or from the barbarian. All they understand is that they gain tribute through fear. The only reason their enemies give them sustenance is not out of compassion which they do not understand, but out of fear from their threats of violence. The more they gain the more violent they become. How foolish is the Olmert government to think they can conduct confidence building among the barbarians. The Nazis never accepted any confidence building from the Jews, but used every attempt at dialog to only send more Jews to their Holocaust. Islam has been far more direct in their intent to exterminate the Jews then ever were the Nazis. The boldness of the Islamic barbarians is exemplified in Hamas. They won't even lie about possible peace with the Jews, and why should they? We pay their tribute by the tons, and fill their coffers by the millions. The lying Fatah who have no land as of right now are expecting everything they need from Israel, and the West so they can be given most of the Holy Land. We already know Abbas is not long as leader of Fatahland. The Islamic Arab barbarians living in Judah and Samaria have already confided that they want Barghouti the vicious killer of 35 Jews now in a Jewish prison. They can make such bold demands because they know the Olmert government is afraid. They know the most impossible demands will be theirs. All they have to do is become more violent. They can spit in the face of the Jews, and the Jews of this generation will only offer good will in return.
These barbarians are not dumb. They know the political will of the Jews is only to build confidence in a peace which all the barbarians reject. The Road Map will never die. Too many political careers are tied to it. The barbarians are embolden to their dedication to the eradication of all Jews from the Holy Land. The coming Jewish Messiah of the Bible will find only Fatahland to greet Him. Barghouti will personally make the coming Jewish King of Glory number 36 on his notched belt. When democracy comes to the future Fatahland the vote will be clear. Oh foolish politicians of this generation. How blind you have become.
Friend, the Bible predicts a better day is coming. A day when the blind eyes will be opened. A wonderful Kingdom Age is coming with the LORD Jesus Christ when He returns. I only pray you are prepared? I only pray you have come to this eye opening Christ of the Bible. He loves you, and died on Calvary so your sins can be washed away. Won't you come to Him, and live?

Five UNIFIL Soldiers Killed by Bomb
(IsraelNN.com) Five Spanish soldiers were killed and six others were wounded by a roadside bomb Sunday afternoon. Hizbullah has denounced the attack and some observers suspect a Sunni terror group is responsible.
Initial reports were that a mine had exploded, but according to the latest reports from Lebanon, the blast was caused by a remote-controlled bomb that was planted on the road between the villages of Hiyam and Marjayoun in southern Lebanon. Eyewitnesses said the soldiers had been traveling in two armored cars, which were heavily damaged by the blast.
Hizbullah's Al-Manar television said that the Hizbullah denounced the attack and claimed that those responsible for it were interested in destabilizing Lebanon. "The attack hurts the residents of southern Lebanon and all of Lebanon," said the Hizbullah announcer.
Should the Democrats of our Congress treat the UN as they do our own soldiers in Iraq they would be demanding all UN troops be pulled out of Lebanon right now! Fair is fair, and the cost of keeping peace in Lebanon has now become too high for the Democrats. Better to save the UN soldiers, and let Hizbullah take control making the Third Lebanon War inevitable by forcing the Jews to defend themselves with another invasion. Pulling out the UN troops would make the exact scenario in Lebanon that caused the Second Lebanon War. Why not have sent all the solders home out of harms way a few months earlier letting the Nazis keep control of Germany, and the militarists keep control of Japan as World War II was winding down? What a world we would have today were this generation of Democrats in charge. What ever happened to the World War I attitude "We won't be back till it's over over there?" We learned a hard lesson by coming back too early during World War I. We should have heeded the words of the song. Now the same song haunts us everywhere in the world where we battle the Islamic barbarians. "It won't be over till it's over over there!"
Hizbullah must be pacified through military might before it is over. Hamas must be forcibly pacified through military might before it is over over there. It must be total victory, or it is never going to be over over there. Don't believe what the Democrats say about there can never be a military victory over the Islamic barbarians. That is the lie of the devil. We as well have said as World War II was winding down that there would be perpetual forever gorilla War in both Germany and Japan. Send the troops home, and we will just negotiate a peace with the Nazis and Japs after we made them think they had the final victory through their threats of forever barbarian violence against our soldiers. I am telling you the truth. These barbarians as all barbarians of the past are cowards. They need to be hunted down like the wild animals that they are with whatever force is necessary before their cowardliness will cause the entire movement to crumble. It happened at the end of World War II, and it will happen again to these Islamic barbarians. Every known terrorist whether of Hizbullah, Hamas, Fatah, or whatever should have an irrevocable death sentence. All soldiers worldwide should be ordered not to come back until they the terrorists are all dead. No capture just dead starting with Abbas. Folks, it would be over over there tomorrow.
Now folks, I can hear the rumblings. "Where is the love of Christ?" Well, He is coming soon. What do you think He will do to these same barbarians sworn to murder Him by any diabolical means available? What Will Jesus Do? Negotiate? Compromise? Give them most of the Holy Land in the hopes they will become submissive? Give them the Holy City of Jerusalem as a good will gesture? Turn over the keys for the Temple Mount so Fatahland can save face, and continue their barbarianism? I for one do not think so.
Friend, the only hope for the barbarian is to give up his barbarian ways. He must be converted from barbarianism to the LORD Jesus Christ. There is no other way to peace in the Holy Land. The Islamic barbarian must come to the Jewish King of Glory with all his heart, all his soul, and all his might before Christ will accept him. The alternative is forever condemnation in the torments of hell where every Islamic warrior now resides because he died as a rejecter of Christ. Friend, if you have never come to Christ with all your heart, all your soul, and all your might you will face the same fate as any Islamic barbarian. My thoughts are that this generation of Islam is beyond repentance. I don't see many if any coming to Christ. What about you. How important is your honor, your pride, that keeps you from humbling yourself before the Savior as revealed through the Bible? Are you also beyond repentance? No! It is another lie of the devil. Friend, you can come right now. You can receive Christ, and live!
12But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:

(IsraelNN.com) Jordanian King Abdullah II pre-empted talks set for Monday at the four-way summit between Israel, the PA, Egypt and Jordan with a phone call to Prime Minister Ehud Olmert a day earlier.
The Hashemite monarch made the call Sunday while meeting with visiting Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas, ostensibly to lay out the groundwork for Monday’s meeting.
The conversation appeared to be the opening gambit in talks that were not scheduled to take place until Monday, when Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak would also be present.
Abdullah urged Israel to begin negotiations on the final status for a new Arab state in Judea and Samaria, adding his voice to the pressure on Israel that has been exerted by the PA chairman for months.
Israel has rejected the idea, saying the move would be too fast and too drastic. Israel insists that Abbas first manage control over his own population, halt terrorism and incitement, and work to prevent terrorist attacks against Israel.
The Jordanian king also addressed the status of the Palestinian Authority itself, and was adamant that Gaza should be included with Judea and Samaria in being considered as one PA entity, according to the Jordanian News Agency. At present, Gaza is being ruled by the Hamas terrorist organization which staged a bloody coup two weeks ago. Abbas’s Fatah terrorist group managed to retain control of the PA-administered areas of Judea and Samaria, however, leaving a functional split between Gaza and the rest of the PA.
Abdullah also charged that Israel's steps to ease travel restrictions for PA Arabs are "inadequate." Prime Minister Olmert had reportedly already assured U.S. President George W. Bush that he would agree to remove security checkpoints and roadblocks in Judea and Samaria in a confidence-building measure designed to help prop up the Abbas emergency government. However, the IDF and defense establishment has opposed the move. They say that opening these routes will endager the lives of Israeli citizens.
Olmert is also expected to formalize a decision made by Israel to transfer more than half a million dollars in tax revenues collected on behalf of the PA but withheld after the election of Hamas to the ruling faction in the government.
The Hashemite monarch also pressed on with an oft-repeated Arab League position that Israel agree, in its entirety, to the 2002 Saudi-authored proposed for settlement of the Arab-Israeli conflict.
The four-way summit Monday is being hosted by Egypt’s President Mubarak. Prime Minister Olmert told the Associated Press news agency before leaving for the summit that it was unlikely that any major breakthroughs would be forthcoming at the meeting.
“Don’t wait impatiently tonight for the outcome, as if at the end of the day you are going to see us sitting and signing a peace treaty,” he said. “It will take time.”
The prime minister added that he is ready to consider the Arab League proposal but warned it was little more than a springboard for further discussion. It’s not going to be simple and not going to be easy,” he stressed. “It’s going to be a long and painful road.
The pain of others especially the Independent Fundamental Jewish Settlers has never caused Olmert to hold back in the past, and I doubt their pain at forced removal (all 250,000 of them) from Judah and Samaria will be too much for Olmert this time either. After all, they are conservative, and he is liberal! The settlers scheduled for removal are all hard working middle to lower class Jews. What a contrast to the lazy barbarians who eternally live off welfare. Would it not be something if the millions flowing into the future Fatahland were instead given to the settlers. They would probably turn it over ten fold in profits from their hard work and resourcefulness. Instead, it will be spent on Kassam rockets of destruction aimed at Jewish civilian centers. This Road Map has people acting like they lost their brains. I just can't believe how removed from reality the politicians of our generation have become.
Islam is calling the shots in the Holy Land, and the Jews whom God blessed with possession are caving into whatever they may demand. Jordan who never won a single battle with the Jews is now demanding the final agreement with the establishment of Fatahland be made immediately. A forever Islamic State from which reality dictates forever terrorism against Israel will be launched. Hamastan is also to be established right now according to the dictates of the Arabs with out any lull in the rocket attacks coming from Gaza against the Jews. This is the reality of the Road Map. The reason great pressure is being applied on the removal of all travel check points in Jewish controlled Judah and Samaria is so the illegal arms flowing into the Holy Land from the Islamic neighbors can be easily distributed and hidden. Never to be found no matter how many times the Jews may make incursions into Fatahland. It is our own Evangelical White House that has made travel in Judah and Samaria a special issue. Our stand on the issue is clear as the Arabs gather to dictate to the Jews the future of Judah and Samaria. Violence is coming no matter what, but the Arabs would love to have an Islamic State right in the middle of the Holy Land from which to launch their never ending torment of the Jews living there.
Islam has already stated publicly their uncompromising plan for the future of the Holy Land before the summit even takes place. The weak Jewish politicians are expected to cry and moan as they wiggle under the foot of the Arab league, but in the end all know the Arabs will win the day. The Jews of this generation have lost their vision of the God of the Bible. They would rather trust the incompetent political leadership of Olmert then put their faith in the God who brought them back to their Promised Land after almost 2000 years. The blasphemous Road Map is the best the politicians can come up with, and the secular Jewish majority have resolved themselves into accepting it.
Friend, you do not have to accept an eternity in torment because the man made religions of this generation have no other alternative. They are all the same saying just do your best! No guarantees! No assurance! Just do your best. Friend, let me tell you the truth. Your best is not good enough before an absolutely Holy God. It would be good enough before that Allah god of the barbarian sexually perverted paradise, but before the Holy God of the Bible your best comes too far short. That is why God sent a Savior. It was God's plan from eternity to save fallen men from their sin! It was God's plan from eternity that the Holy Land would be where this all takes place. Oh dear friend, come to this Christ of the Bible, and live.
21And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins.

Quartet said set to name Blair as its Mideast envoy
By Haaretz Service and The Associated Press
The Quartet of Middle East negotiators will confirm the appointment of outgoing British Prime Minister Tony Blair as its special envoy Tuesday, according to a report published in the London-based Financial Times.
"Blair's appointment has been 150 percent approved," the report quoted a figure close to negotiations over Blair's new role as saying. "The Jerusalem meeting is all about arranging logistics, making final arrangements and getting the announcement out."
Speaking to reporters in London, Blair said: "I think anybody who cares about greater peace and stability in the world knows that a lasting and enduring resolution of the Israeli-Palestinian issue is essential and, as I have said on many occasions, I would do whatever I could to help such a resolution come about."
Envoys from the United States, United Nations, European Union and Russia, which comprise the Quartet, met Tuesday for nearly three hours at the U.S. consulate in Jerusalem for their first talks since Hamas seized control of the Gaza Strip nearly two weeks ago.
Heading into the meeting, UN spokesman said the envoys had no set agenda and would discuss recent developments and the way forward.
Participants left without speaking to the press, and details on the talks weren't immediately available, but the envoys were expected to issue a statement later in the day.
While Russia had expressed reservations about Blair's appointment but has decided not to oppose it. EU foreign policy chief Javier Solana has also expressed opposition to the move, saying it would distract from his own mediation efforts in the region.
Diplomats told the Financial Times that the Quartet envoy's role is largely focused on improving Palestinian governance, and would not involve diplomatic negotiations between Israel and the Palestinian Authority.
Blair will step aside Wednesday after a decade in power, handing over the reigns of power to Chancellor Gordon Brown.
A spokeswoman for the British Embassy in Israel would not confirm the report.
The biggest name available in international politics has now been placed before the public in an attempt to keep the Road Map alive. The Islamic Arabs of Palestine have only been getting worse ever since the Road Map was introduced. The first step of the Road Map was the withdrawal from Gaza which brought only rockets raining down on the Israeli public. The next step will be the withdrawal from Judah and Samaria. The final nail in the coffin of the Road Map should have been two weeks ago when Hamas took control of Gaza. Actually, the final nail should have been when Hamas had the landslide victory in the last democratic election taking place in Gaza. Our Evangelical White House along with the rest of the Quartet refused to face reality, and so they continued with the Road Map even though the Arab Palestinian side was boldly and completely out of the peace process. God has most certainly closed the door to the Road Map by making the world face up to the reality that the Palestinian Arabs want no part of peace with the Jews! There can never be peace with a people sworn to murder every Jew living in Israel. Yet, here is Tony Blair being put out front to convince all that reality does not exist, and the Road Map is going ahead. The Road Map peace plan is now only one sided. Israel withdraws, and the Islamic barbarians murder even more Jews. This is like saying we have peace with Jaws the shark star of the movie Jaws. We feed him all the people he may want calling it a peace plan, and he will so respond to our love that he will stop eating people (so say the politicians). What a Road Map to peace that would be! We are dealing with an Islamic generation nurtured to be even worse then the wild beast in Jaws. They have been raised from cradle to grave to kill Jews. They must be rehabilitated not coddled. Islam must be rehabilitated, and it must start in the Holy Land! Islam is intent on eradicating every Jewish man, woman, and child from the Holy Land. Islamic suicide bombers target the gathering places of Jewish teens. If the world is not going to fulfill their responsibility to rehabilitate Islam from this dastardly goal then the God of the Bible will.
Read Ezekiel 39 to see the Biblical solution to the Islamic threat to the Holy Land. It is one of the most horrific descriptions of Judgment to be found in the annals of literature. Obviously Fatahland and the Road Map are major issues to God that He used the prophet Ezekiel to record the end of all Islamic influence over the Holy Land for all generations to contemplate. We are the ones who will be witness to the fulfillment of Ezekiel 38 & 39 (hopefully from a vantage point in heaven after the rapture). The blasphemous Road Map is the phony peace process that causes Israel to not be on guard when the Last Jihad takes place.
7Be thou prepared, and prepare for thyself, thou, and all thy company that are assembled unto thee, and be thou a guard unto them.
8After many days thou shalt be visited: in the latter years thou shalt come into the land that is brought back from the sword, and is gathered out of many people, against the mountains of Israel, which have been always waste: but it is brought forth out of the nations, and they shall dwell safely all of them.
9Thou shalt ascend and come like a storm, thou shalt be like a cloud to cover the land, thou, and all thy bands, and many people with thee.
The Olmert government is certainly not on guard making plans to support the Road Map. The latter years are upon us, and reality teaches the blasphemous Road Map is going to lead to an Islamic invasion of Israel by the worst barbarians to walk the planet.
Friend, Islam is not going to be spared. After Islam will come the antichrist, and after the antichrist will come Armageddon. Where do you fit into these latter years picture that are now upon us. Will you find your refuge in the LORD Jesus Christ, or like Islam reject His loving offer of grace for the phoniness of man-made religion. The choice is yours. Come to this Christ of the Bible now for salvation, or face the wrath of the Lamb. Only those who are born again will be able to stand when the wrath of the Lamb is manifested.

Israeli Government to invest NIS 1b. to secure South
After years of rocket barrages aimed at the southern Israeli town of Sderot and at the Gaza-belt communities, the government has decided to invest some NIS 1 billion ($250,000) in a new plan to protect the area, Israeli Army Radio reported this morning. The plan focuses mainly on the protection of private homes, and includes the possible addition of a small secure room to each housing unit. Other possible solutions include installing fortified roofs and walls, or turning one room in each house into a secure room. According to the report, the plan also takes into account the fact that many residents are usually not inside their homes when the rockets fall. "We plan to find a solution for the streets themselves, as well as the large public areas," a security source said.
Well, here it is! The Road Map peace plan in operation. Here is the answer to the never ending Arab barbaric torment of the Jews. The solution is not stop the Islamic Arab barbarians from firing ever more powerful rockets at the Jews. The peace plan is to have the Jews go underground. A perpetual blitz is now the acceptable outcome of the Road Map. Sderot sets the future for the Holy Land peace process. Imagine the cost of housing after the Olmert government gets finished with governmental standards for new housing. The next step will be mandatory bullet proof clothing when walking through the land of milk and honey. It is the liberal timidity of the Olmert government that has changed the attitude of the Islamic world from losers to winners. Folks, this is all leading to the Last Jihad Islamic invasion of Israel, and it is very close!
Basically, the world has agreed that Islam can continue nurturing Jewish hate as a forever theological doctrine exemplifying Islamic righteousness so long as there is a Jew left alive in the Holy Land. This is the blasphemous Road Map! This is the world's way of answering the God of the Bible who has decided to change dispensations in our generation. The Jewish Kingdom Age first step started with this miraculous Third Exodus of our generation. It will culminate with the coming of the Jewish King of Glory who will return to the Holy Land, Jerusalem, and Mount Zion. Nothing is going to stop the LORD Jesus Christ from coming again as the Jewish Messiah. He is going to redeem His children, and bring in a 1000 year peace that will be noted for His rule with a rod of Iron. A rod of Biblical righteousness where sin will be outlawed, and Christ will have the power to enforce Biblical law. Nothing can stop Christ from taking control of all religion, and all government. He will establish a culture of purity and righteousness. Judgment and justice will be the forever worldwide standard once the Kingdom Age is established.
6For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.
7Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this.
Friend, are you prepared for the return of the LORD Jesus Christ. He is not coming so Islam can put Him on the cross once again. Fatahland righteousness will not rule over Judah and Samaria. The blasphemous shrines to Islam will have long been bulldozed off Mount Zion before Jesus returns to His Father's House. He will bring real peace to the Holy Land, but it will be established with judgment! The Bible says the zeal of the LORD of hosts will perform this! Jesus Christ is not returning as the suffering Savior this time, but as the mighty LORD of hosts who can not lose! His victory is guaranteed by the very power of God. He bought the right of full submission by the heathen at Calvary.
8Ask of me, and I shall give thee the heathen for thine inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the earth for thy possession.
9Thou shalt break them with a rod of iron; thou shalt dash them in pieces like a potter's vessel.
10Be wise now therefore, O ye kings: be instructed, ye judges of the earth.
11Serve the Lord with fear, and rejoice with trembling.
12Kiss the Son, lest he be angry, and ye perish from the way, when his wrath is kindled but a little. Blessed are all they that put their trust in him.
Friend, again I ask are you prepared? All who have refused to come to Christ will be broken by His rod of iron. The time to come is now. Tomorrow may prove too late. Kiss the Son dear friend. Come to this Christ of the Bible so He can bless you. He can wash away your sin with His precious blood shed at Calvary. He has the power to forgive sin. You have the decisive power to either accept, or reject His free gift of grace. Oh friend, kiss the Son! The soon returning LORD of hosts.

(IsraelNN.com) Twelve terrorists were killed as the IDF carried out counter-terror operations in Judea, Samaria and northern and southern Gaza Tuesday night and Wednesday.
In Khan Yunis, next to the destroyed Jewish town of N’vei Dekalim, Islamic Jihad terrorist Di Abu Daka was killed in a gunbattle with IDF Givati Brigade troops pre-dawn Wednesday. Two more terrorists were wounded, and no IDF injuries were reported.
Three Hamas terrorists were later killed in Gaza City by an IDF tank shell after they engaged soldiers with anti-tank rockets. In addition, Islamic Jihad’s senior terrorist in charge of launching rockets, Raad Fanuneh, was killed in an explosion while driving in the city’s Sajaiya neighborhood. PA reports claimed it was an IAF air strike, but the IDF said it has no knowledge of such an attack.
The IDF forces entered Gaza through the Karni Crossing in the north and Sufa Crossing in the south for the two morning operations.
Shortly afterwards, terrorists fired a Kassam rocket from Gaza towards Sderot; it landed uneventfully in an open area. Later in the day, a second Kassam rocket slammed into the city's industrial zone, sending several people into shock.
An IDF tank in northern Gaza was damaged and two soldiers lightly injured when terrorists fired anti-tank missiles at it Wednesday before noon. The Salah a-Din Brigades of the Hizbullah-backed Popular Resistance Committees took responsibility for the attack.
IDF sources said that the army would continue to take action in Gaza to fight the terrorist threats against Israel, particularly the manufacture and launching of Kassam rockets. This, regardless of the "internal Hamas-Fatah situation in Gaza, which is not Israel's concern."
Judea and Samaria
IDF soldiers engaged an Islamic Jihad terrorist in a gun battle in Burkin, a village near Jenin, Tuesday night – after he resisted arrest and opened fire on the troops. The man was seriously wounded, despite PA reports he was killed in the fighting.
Two other terrorists were wounded in the fighting and taken to Afula’s HaEmek Hospital for treatement. No IDF injuries were reported. The terrorists were involved in Fatah terrorism in addition to Islamic Jihad operations.
Abbas Bans ‘Unauthorized’ Guns
Fatah chief Mahmoud Abbas declared unauthorized guns banned from the streets of the PA-assigned areas of Judea and Samaria. Army Radio reported that the directive applies mostly to Hamas, but also to those members of Fatah’s Al-Aksa Brigades terrorist group whose weapons are not authorized.
IDF Continues Humanitarian Aid Despite Dangers
The Kerem Shalom Crossing was closed Tuesday after terrorists targeted it with gunfire and mortar shells. A large bomb was discovered near the crossing earlier Tuesday.
The crossing had been used to transfer humanitarian assistance to the Arabs of Gaza. At least 80 trucks filled with food crossed into Gaza via the Sufa crossing after Kerem Shalom was closed. The shipment also contained 600,000 young plants for Gaza’s greenhouse farmers.
The PA assigned area of Judah and Samaria? Who assigned what to whom, and when? The last I heard Abbas was run out of Gaza with his tail between his legs, and officially dissolved the Palestinian Authority. Where are the international judges who determine the legality of such claims? They were quick to deny the Jewish claim to Jerusalem as their capital in 1967, but they will bend over backward when Abbas makes the same claim for the Islamic barbarians once Fatahland is presented to the world. The only legitimacy Abbas (the Holocaust denier) has is in the PA that he himself dissolved. This Road Map steps all over legitimacy as it continues to move forward. It is an unjust plan that ignores reality. Where is justice when Abbas gives orders in Judah and Samaria? Hamas laughs at him, and so should the world. A little Jew hating mini-dictator who talks big, but has no authority whatsoever. The problem with the Road Map is that the Islamic Arabs of Palestine are too proud to accept a gift from the hated Jews. It is too humiliating! They would be looked down upon by the rest of Islam. The Olmert government has no one, but Abbas among their enemies who will accept Judah and Samaria. The blasphemous Road Map can't continue unless the Jews withdraw from all that God blessed them with in 1967. They must have someone to give it to before they withdraw. I have a suggestion! Why not give it to the Independent Fundamental Jewish Settlers already living there. They are prosperous, and actually want this land that they love. They would make it a productive land of milk and honey from which the entire world would benefit. This is a far better proposal then the Road Map which would make it a perpetual welfare State called Fatahland until elections when it will convert to Hamastan so the Palestinian Arabs can save face.
I can tell you that in the end the Jews will have control over all of the Holy Land. The Islamic barbarians will have been destroyed by God in judgment. The present battle between the Bible and the Koran will be only a bad memory. A hic-cup in the course of the history of the Holy Land. The Islamic Arab conquest is doomed. They have proven themselves as dishonorable a people as the Bible always said they were. They rejected the Bible for the Koran. They rejected Christ for Mohamed. They rejected the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob for Allah the invented Arabic god of Abraham, Ishmael, and Esau.
2I have loved you, saith the Lord. Yet ye say, Wherein hast thou loved us? Was not Esau Jacob's brother? saith the Lord: yet I loved Jacob,
3And I hated Esau, and laid his mountains and his heritage waste for the dragons of the wilderness.
12It was said unto her, The elder shall serve the younger.
13As it is written, Jacob have I loved, but Esau have I hated.
Friend, does God hate you? All who do not come to the LORD Jesus Christ for salvation reject Him. They reject the free gift of grace offered by the great God of the Bible. It is on this basis of rejection that the wrath of God is kindled. It is spiting in the face of the God of all creation by rejecting His only begotten Son. Won't you come to Him for the forgiveness of your sin?
14And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.
