Iran Joins EU and US in Funding
15:48 Feb 28, '06 / 30 Shevat 5766
By Ezra HaLevi
Iran will fund the Hamas-led Palestinian Authority. The European Union and United States have transferred hundreds of millions of dollars in funds as well, ahead of Hamas officially taking office.
Iran has promised $250 million to the Hamas terror group, to combat any sanctions placed upon the Palestinian Authority since the Islamic group swept the PA elections last month.
“The Iranian leadership announced that it will support the new Palestinian government and people,” Hamas chief Khaled Mesha'al told a British Arabic newspaper. “This was the viewpoint heard during my visit to Tehran, in response to the American threats and pressures. Other Arab and Islamic countries have committed to supporting the new government [as well].”
The terror group has also expressed satisfaction with the European Union's decision to transfer some $143 million to various bodies operating in the PA prior to Hamas officially forming its government. Israel already stopped transferring taxes and customs duties to the Authority since the Hamas-led government was sworn in on February 18.
Hamas said the EU's decision represented Europe's “coming to terms with the PA election results,” after less than a month of equivocation.
Philippe Douste-Blazy, France's foreign minister said that the funds were being transferred in order to prevent "economic chaos" in the Hamas Authority. EU officials claim the aid package comprises $48 million to pay for the Authority’s energy and other utility bills, $76 million for health and education projects and $21 million to help the authority pay its employees, including the 73,000 members of several armed factions.
"Europe understands that it would not be wise to discontinue the aid," said Hamas official Khalil Abu Laila, in a veiled threat toward the reluctant benefactor. He added that he was very pleased that Europe so quickly back-pedaled on its original stance demanding Hamas disavow terrorism and accept Israel. "Hamas [did not have] to make any concessions or yield to pressures,” he said. "[Though] Hamas will continue to uphold its principles even if the aid will be stopped."
Another Hamas delegation will set out to an official visit to Russia Friday, where Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov will meet representatives of the Islamic group.
It may well be that the new PA under Hamas will start with even more money from outside benefactors then the old PA under Fatah was receiving. The attitude of wiping Israel off the map has turned into a pot of gold for the barbarians. The phony rhetoric of peace coming from the politicians can no longer be hidden. It is only rhetoric. The meat is in the millions going to a government sworn to eliminate all the Jews from the Holy Land. The meat is going to the barbarians who openly make war on women and children!
The meat of the hate against the Jews living in the Holy Land is really hate against the God who chose the Jews to be His children. It is the same kind of hate that was manifested against the LORD Jesus Christ when He came the first time saying the Kingdom of heaven is at hand. This generation refuses to submit to the righteousness of the God of the Bible. This generation has redefined righteousness to meet their own selfish ideals. Democracy and freedom of religion is the point in contention. Righteousness to this generation is giving back to the barbarians what God has already given to the Jews. Now that God is forcing His righteousness on the planet there is rebellion. There is hate against every overt act that God makes in bringing to fulfillment His promises of a Kingdom founded on Biblical righteousness. That Kingdom is going to come to the Jews in the Holy Land, Jerusalem, and the Temple Mount according to the Bible, and the world is openly rebelling against this coming truth. Our Evangelical White House is leading the way of rebellion through it's insistence on the Road Map as the only peace plan for the Holy Land in the offering. A plan based on democracy, and freedom for all the worldly religions. A plan that has failed dramatically with the election of Hamas. A plan that can only survive if Hamas as a welfare state is supported by the world, and kept in power.
The God of the Bible is a jealous God. He refuses to share His perfect coming Kingdom with sin! He certainly is not going to share it with the barbarians. This generation is in rebellion against the puritanical one-sided rule of Christ that will demand sinless perfection, and immediate repentance the moment that perfection is broken by sin. This kind of rule is not democratic. Only the Bible defines the righteousness of God, and will be the only rule for the coming Kingdom. Men have no say in the definition of either righteousness or sin. It is all already defined by the holiness revealed in the Bible.
7 Sanctify yourselves therefore, and be ye holy : for I am the LORD your God.
8 And ye shall keep my statutes, and do them: I am the LORD which sanctify you.
1 Peter 1:15-16
15 But as he which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation;
16 Because it is written, Be ye holy ; for I am holy.
The greatness of holiness is that with perfect righteousness comes perfect peace. One single religion. One single government. One single King who is also Prophet and Priest. One single society where the righteousness of the Bible is the only rule! A perfect form of Judaism will function for 1000 years under the rule of the only perfect King of the Jews. He will rule from the Holy Land, Jerusalem, and the Temple Mount! Are you ready? Have you come to this Christ of the Bible. Is He the Savior of your soul? Only those who come with all their heart, soul, and might meet the requirements of full submission to this coming King. Why not settle any doubts by coming to Him right now for forgiveness and salvation. The call to repent is as real today as it was when first proclaimed to those lost in sin. Dear friend, won't you come to this Christ right now? Won't you let Him change your heart so you desire the holy righteousness of which the Bible speaks.

Abbas says signs of Qaida presence in Gaza, West Bank
By Arnon Regular, Haaretz Correspondent and The Associated Press
Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas said in remarks published on Thursday there were signs of an Al-Qaida presence in the Gaza Strip and West Bank.
"We have indications about a presence of Al-Qaida in Gaza and the (West) Bank. This is intelligence information. We have not yet reached the point of arrests," Abbas said.
"The last security report I received was three days ago," he told the London-based al-Hayat newspaper. "This is the first time that I've spoken about this subject. This is a very serious matter."
Israeli officials said they were worried that foreign militants and Al-Qaida agents entered Gaza from Egypt during a brief period of chaos on the border following the Israeli withdrawal from Gaza last year. The Palestinian Authority said that was untrue.
Abbas to transfer broad security powers to Hamas
Abbas also said Thursday that he intends to transfer broad security powers to the future Hamas government, including the national defense branch, preventive security, the civilian police and civil defense.
The national defense branch, which consists of 25,000 policemen, is the largest branch and is defined as the Palestinian army. The other three are subject to the Palestinian Interior Ministry.
In an interview to Al-Jazeera television in Qatar earlier this week, Abbas said that the only security branch which would not be subjected to the government would be General Intelligence, headed by Tawfik A-Tirawi. This branch remains subject to his ministry, he said.
"We'll grant Hamas authority over the Palestinians' national security because we need to have one body controling the situation to ensure security. I don't intend to deprive Hamas of what I demanded in the past from Yasser Arafat," he said.
This is the first time that Abbas has stated his intention to impart broad security powers to Hamas. According to sources close to Abbas, his statement was meant to clarify his intention to give Hamas partial security powers.
The Palestinian Constitution subjected the three security branches to the interior minister when Abu Mazen was forming his first government in 2003. Under pressure from the international community, then PA chairman Arafat agreed to renounce his control over some of the branches.
However, the sources said Abbas, who is defined by the constitution as "supreme commander of the armed forces," did not intend to renounce control over the branches, but rather to give Hamas the role of supervising them, not actually controling them.
Abbas also said in the interview that he is in favor of forming a unity government with Hamas "on the basis of a joint Fatah-Hamas platform. If no agreement is reached Hamas will form it by itself because it has a parliamentary majority."
Hamas leaders have stated that they do not seek direct control of foreign affairs and defense ministries, but will ask for authority to supervise these ministries' activities.
In recent weeks Abbas has transferred security authorities from the government to his own ministry. He appointed Interior Minister General Nasser Yusuf as his deputy for security affairs and put head of preventive security Rashid Abu Shabak in charge of "internal security in the West Bank and Gaza."
It was only a matter of time before Hamas and Al-Qaida hooked up. Both groups wear the 9-11 horror as a badge of honor. We should always remember all those woman office workers many leaving little babies behind that were specifically targeted by these modern day barbarians for the shock factor. They want us to cower in the corner at the mere mention of their names. They expect us to give them whatever they ask because of our fear for them. The barbarian by definition does not work to support himself and family. They rather steal, plunder, and rape the civilized societies. Today, they are raping the West by insisting we financially support their declared threat to kill every Jew living in the Holy Land. Should we hold back on the demanded tribute they threaten us with the same annihilation. It does not seem to matter that our armies have proved the bluff of the Islamic world. We wiped the map with them at every engagement. It is the bleeding hearts who keep taking away our victories in war, and then losing the peace by bowing to the Islamic barbarians every wish. These barbarians want the Holy Land that God promised the Jews in the Bible. They want the Bible to be a forbidden book in the Holy Land, and would replace it with the blasphemous Koran. These barbarians will cut off the hands of any caught with a Bible once Hamas and Al-Quida establish Islamic law upon the Holy Land. Today they have the Gaza, tomorrow it will be the West Bank, Jerusalem, and the Temple Mount, and the day after all of the Holy Land.
The Islamic Palestinian Arabs have cast their lot with Hamas and Al-Qaida. They look at all the politicians of the West as dupes. They look at you as a dupe for doing nothing while they brag of their barbarian ways. It is the present attempt at keeping the Road Map alive that is driving all this financing of the Palestinians now that there is no pretence as to their intent to murder the Jews of the Holy Land. In this twisted world the Road Map is what is giving the barbarians the victory. It is the Road Map that will give the barbarians Jerusalem as their capital. What a blasphemous thought that is!
The continuance of the Road Map is following the crooked way. The way of the Koran. The way of iniquity. The way of Hamas and Al-Qaida. The Bible has a different way that centers around Jerusalem, and Zion in particular. It is the only way to everlasting peace. The time has come for this generation to decide in whom they trust.
Friend, in whom do you trust? Christ is the only answer for all generations. The Jews were told by all their prophets to look forward to His appearing as their Messiah. The New Testament affirms that He came just as the prophets predicted. He fulfilled all the prophecies about His first coming as the babe of Bethlehem. The Bible tells us more about Christ, and reveals that He is coming again as the same Messiah to the Jews as He was the first time. He is coming to the Holy Land, Jerusalem, and to Zion. He is coming this time as the LORD of hosts. The Almighty God who can't be defeated or ignored. His offer of salvation is still made available to any who will come. Islam has refused that offer. They are about to suffer eternal torment for their evil ways. You will join them if you also reject Christ. He will not be ignored. The choice is to come to Him in repentance, or be banished to hell with the barbarians. Friend, on which road is your eternal soul traveling? The choice is yours, and the consequences lay on your shoulders. Won't you come to Christ right now?

Some progress reported as Iran-EU talks end without result
By The Associated Press
VIENNA - Iran and the European Union inched toward a compromise that diplomats said would allow Tehran to run a scaled-down version of a uranium enrichment program with potential for misuse to develop atomic weapons.
The development Friday was significant because the Europeans and the United States have for years opposed allowing Iran any kind of enrichment capability - a stance that Russia, China and other influential nations have embraced in recent months.
Top European officials - including the foreign ministers of France and Germany - publicly described talks Friday in Vienna as failing because of Tehran's refusal to reimpose a freeze on enrichment.
"Unfortunately we were not able to reach an agreement," French Foreign Minister Philippe Douste-Blazy told reporters. He said the EU continues to demand "full and complete suspension" of uranium enrichment and related activities that have fed fears that Iran may be pursuing nuclear arms.

Officer: Israel protected against Iran
A high-ranking Israeli army officer says that the country's latest generation anti-ballistic missile system can destroy anything Iran can throw at it.
In an interview with the Jerusalem Post, the unnamed officer said that improvements to the Arrow 2 have made it capable of shooting down Iran's Shihab 3 missiles even when they are equipped with nuclear warheads.
There is constant pressure to always stay a step ahead of our adversaries, the officer said. They developed decoys on their missiles and we developed ways to detect the decoys and to be able to accurately strike the incoming threat.
He said that the destruction would take place at such a high altitude that the missile would disintegrate and scatter, posing no danger to Israel.
The country reportedly has at least two Arrow batteries, one at Palmahim to protect Tel Aviv and the other at Ein Shemer near Hadera in the north.
My personal feeling about where this Iranian nuclear enrichment program is going is that the end of it all will be an international decree making all of the Middle East a nuclear free zone. Iran will be stopped, but not just Iran. Israel will be required by international law to give up all their nuclear deterrents, and they will agree to do it! It may be their trust in Jewish technology? It may be their trust in the international community to protect them from their Islamic enemies? It may be both, or some yet to be revealed method of providing security to the Jewish Nation? However it will come, I'm convinced the Jews are going to put down their guard.
The only real advantage Islam has over the Jews is numbers. In a back alley last man standing brawl with fists only Islam with a ten to one population advantage can't help but win. Jewish technology has always been the equalizer that has kept the Arab hordes at bay. The ultimate technological advantage is Israel's nuclear deterrents. The advantage of numbers becomes meaningless when nuclear bombs are brought into the fray. Yet, the Bible says Israel is going to let down their guard against Islam. I would not be surprised to see this present struggle with Iran move into the formation of a nuclear free Middle East.
God is very clear as putting Israel on their guard in the latter years. The invading force should this prophecy of the latter years be fulfilled in our generation can be nothing less then an Islamic invasion of Israel. The Jews are prophesied as being at rest. Dwelling safely in cities without bars, gates, or walls. Cities possibly overly confident in their anti-ballistic system as the infallible deterrent against Islam? The Bible also speaks of things coming into the minds of the invaders. Terrible things I believe that will come with the implementation of the Road Map. The vulnerability of the Jews living safely in the Holy Land will be too much for the hate filled Islamic hordes this generation has raised. They will take advantage of the Jews who refuse to listen to God about being prepared.
Friend, God wants all of us to be prepared for the latter years. There is only one way! It is by resting in Christ. Any other trust in any other source will prove futile as these latter years unfold. Are you prepared? Have you put your trust in the soon returning Jewish Messiah?

Hamas Sets Up Standing Army in
Gaza to Spread Jihad
15:47 Mar 05, '06 / 5 Adar 5766
By Scott Shiloh
The Hamas terror organization, which won control of the PA legislature in January elections, is setting up a standing army in Gaza based on its military wing, the Al-Kassam Brigades.
A senior official in the Hamas military, known by his nom de guerre, Abu Huzaifa, told the PA news agency Duniya Alwatan that since the Disengagement from Gaza, the Hamas has set up military bases in every city in Gaza. The bases have been training a new cadre of highly motivated fighters for the Jihad, or holy war against non-Moslems in general and the Jewish state in particular.
Recruits are sent to the camps for four months. The first month consists of basic training, and after that, recruits are taught more advanced military maneuvers.
More specifically, Abu Huzaifa said PA soldiers are taught a number of techniques including firing rifles, shooting Kassam rockets, crawling under fences, and climbing up and down buildings. The instructors are Hamas terrorists who received training abroad.
The goal, he said, was to turn the Al-Kassam Brigades into a full-fledged standing army. That army would be dedicated to eliminating Israel and replacing it with an Arab state ruled by the Hamas.
Abu Huzaifa said that military units were already working on developing more sophisticated rockets and explosive devices to advance the Jihad.
Wary of being targeted by Israel, Hamas terrorists have also set up an intelligence infrastructure to warn of an impending Israeli strike, according to the Duniya Alwatan news agency. Terrorist have been deployed at strategic locations in order to provide advance warning as Israeli fighter jets or helicopters approach the Gaza district.
The Hamas already has a communications system capable of warning thousands of terrorists of an oncoming Israeli air strike, or of the need to deploy fighters on the border with Israel, in the event that Israel decides to send ground forces into Gaza.
Abu Huzaifa warned Israel that it will encounter fierce resistance, should it try to reconquer Gaza from the Hamas.
Rain of Kassam Rockets Doesn´t
17:07 Mar 05, '06 / 5 Adar 5766
By Hillel Fendel
fewer than 8 Kassam rockets were fired
Sunday morning from northern Gaza towards Ashkelon and the western Negev.
No casualties or damage were caused; two of the rockets landed in the Mediterranean Sea. The Israel Air Force responded with seven artillery responses towards the rocket launching areas.
On Friday, a Kassam hit a site identified publicly only as a "strategic site" in southern Ashkelon. The attack caused damage to a building and sent two people into shock. Southern Ashkelon boasts several strategic sites, including a major electric power plant, pipelines, and a desalination facility.
Friday night and early Saturday morning, the IAF retaliated by bombing eight access routes to northern Gaza, hoping to stop the terrorists from bringing rockets to launching sites.
In the northern Samaria terror-center city of Jenin, three Arab youths were caught over the weekend, in two separate incidents, attempting to smuggle knives through checkpoints. They admitted their goal of stabbing Jews. Some 30 would-be stabbers have been caught in this manner over the past two months. The latest stabbing victim, a truck driver who was attacked this past Thursday in the northern Jerusalem industrial zone in Atarot, is now listed in moderate condition.
Arabs rioted today near Ramallah against the construction of the security wall/fence. An IDF officer was hurt moderately and a Border Guard policeman was lightly wounded.
Hamas is training the Islamic youth of Palestine to not just be soldiers for Allah, but to be sneak killers of civilian Jews. These knife attacks by youthful Arabs upon the Jewish population are increasing as Hamas control increases. This is the Hamas idea of the Boy Scouts. The training camps are to assure an entire nation will be ready to die for Allah when the mullahs call for the extermination of the Jews. The arms are already flowing into the Gaza to make sure every young boy has a rifle and bayonet with which to kill Jews upon graduation.
Islam continues to call for Jihad. They want a religious war! They are training, and preparing for a religious war. They have in their own eyes a religious war! The only problem is that in the politically correct West religious wars are not in the vocabulary. Wars of oppression, wars of culture, wars of most anything but religion are all that will be recognized. The vocabulary coming out from the Palestinians is always painted over with the words like oppression for Western World consumption. The implication is that should the Jews ever lift their oppressive ways over the Arabs then all hostilities would end. A religious war means only the extermination of the Jews can ever bring peace from the Islamic view point. The thing about this declared religious war by Islam is that it works the other direction also, and especially when it is the peace of the Holy Land that is being engaged. The extermination of Islam so as never to be an influence in the Holy Land is what God has already decided will be the end of this present conflict which has come as a result of this Third miraculous Exodus. The God of the Bible through His sovereign will has determined this is the time in history for the Jews to return to their Promised Land. It matters not what the Europeans may think about God's timing. It matters not what the United States thinks about the timing, and it certainly matters not what Islam thinks about the timing of the God of the Bible. The God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob! It is His time, and that is all that matters.
The end of the religious war the God of the Bible has mounted against the entire world in this our generation is aimed at forcing the submission of all to Christ the coming King of the Jews. God has decided it is time for the Kingdom to come. He does not have to open fronts in Russia, China, Europe etc. The Holy Land is the sufficient place for Him to stand, and this evil generation will flow to Him filled with the same hate we see coming from the Palestinians today. It is just not Islam that is refusing to submit to the God of the Bible, and His returning King of kings. It is the entire world that will never submit to His puritanical righteousness coming with the return of Christ. They will flow into the Valley of Decision where Armageddon takes place. There the God of the Bible will confront them with His only begotten Son!
Today, we watch Islam as the first line of rebellion boldly displayed against the will of the God of the Bible. Ezekiel 39 will be the response of God as He engages in this declared religious war by Islam. I doubt there is a more gruesome description in all the world of literature as is the description of what happens to the Islamic invaders of the Holy Land. Read it for yourself, and see if you agree?
Read Ezekiel 39
Friend, the issue is submission. Hagar was commanded by the pre-incarnate Christ appearing as the Angel of the LORD to submit to her mistress Sarai. God loved Hagar. He wanted the best for her. He wanted her to submit only to the God of Abraham and Sarai. He knew even before Ishmael was born all about this wild man, and his future seed. The worst of that seed was the coming of Mohamed who wrote the Koran which is the greatest factor in keeping the Arabs, and all other followers of the Koran from coming to Christ the seed of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob! Islam will never submit to the Biblical Jewish King! The Koran prohibits such submission!
What is preventing you dear reader from submitting to the Christ of the Bible? The religious war the God of the Bible is engaged with this generation will not end when Islam is destroyed. It will not end until Armageddon takes place at the end of the Great Tribulation. It will not end until every Jew and gentile submit to Christ, or perish from this earth into eternal condemnation. It is the will of the God of the Bible that Christ be the only Messiah/Savior, and sinners must submit to Him for salvation. There is no other way. There is no other Savior. Won't you come to Him right now with all your heart, soul, and might?

Saudis Break Promise on Israel Trade
Kingdom to Host International Boycott Parley
Despite a promise made to Washington last November to drop its economic boycott of Israel, Saudi Arabia is moving forward with plans to host a major international conference next week aimed at promoting a continued trade embargo on the Jewish state, reports The Jerusalem Post.
The Post also found that Riyadh continues to prohibit entry to products made in Israel or to foreign-made goods containing Israeli components, contrary to the conditions placed on Saudi entry to the World Trade Organization in November 2005.
In a recent telephone interview, the commissioner for the Islamic Office for the Boycott of Israel said that all 57 Muslim nations would attend and discuss ways to "strengthen the boycott."
In US Senate hearings last month, the Bush administration's trade representative, Rob Portman, insisted that the Saudis "have a responsibility to treat Israel as any other member of the WTO. We've received assurances from Saudi Arabia (that) they will abide by their WTO commitments."
Nonetheless, The Post has found that Saudi customs officials continue to enforce the boycott, asserting that no Israeli-made goods be brought into the country.
What is the worth of the word given by Islamic controlled nations? It is worth absolutely nothing. There is no fear of retribution from Allah when Islamic character is called into question. They lie to us, and they lie to each other. They all claim the blessings of Allah in every lie. Each Islamic group is a religious island of their own accountable for nothing but their own thoughts about what serves them best. Islamic righteousness according to the Saudi leaders is to lie to the international community. They promise one thing while they practice just the opposite. The Al-Qaida Islamic's see righteousness as attacking America's civilian office work force. They tell all who will listen that 9-11 was an act of Islamic righteousness. The Saudi's publicly do not take this position, but then what can you put to the words of a liar? There is a form of Islamic righteousness that seems to have universal acceptance in the Islamic world no matter which island cultural group is examined. That being the murder of Jews. The hate of these modern day barbarians has no limits when it comes to the Jews. The 57 Moslem Nations gathering together in Saudi Arabia share this one common form of Islamic righteousness. They want to make sure not one single penny of Islamic money will ever profit those hated Jews.
The God of the Bible is nothing like the Islamic Allah. He calls all His followers to a different standard. The God of the Bible recognizes the source of Islamic righteousness, and pulls no punches when identifying that source.
44 Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar , and the father of it.
It should be no surprise that after the Jew Islam hates the Christian because we both hold to the Bible as the guiding force for our character. It is that same Bible that so eloquently describes the source of Islamic righteousness. The apostle John wrote these words of Christ 300 years before Mohamed wrote that blasphemous Koran. Only the omniscient God of the Bible could have so well identified this Islam that we are witnessing today. It is no wonder Islam hates the Bible. It is no wonder they had to write another book so that their style of righteousness would be acceptable. Islam in practice is a religion for the barbarians. They can openly lie, cheat, and murder under Islamic law as described in the Koran. They can murder, rape, rob, and pillage whomever they want in the name of Allah.
The Bible is certainly not politically acceptable. It uses only the language of truth. Only the Bible says the LORD Jesus Christ is the Savior, and there is no other. The Bible identifies Mohamed as a tool of his father the father of lies! The LORD Jesus Christ unlike Mohamed, and his Arabic Allah was obsessed with the truth. Christ not only spoke the truth, but He lived the truth. He, and only He is truth! He wants you to come to Him for salvation. He died as a sacrifice for sin. Your sin, and mine. There is no other way to the Father God then the way of Christ. This is the great truth that the Bible teaches. Won't you come to this Christ of the Bible? Won't you come to Him right now?
6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth , and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
But by Christ is a powerful statement. It means that by Allah as presented through Mohamed is a lie! The war between the Bible and the Koran is fully engaged in the Holy Land. The truth is that the LORD Jesus Christ is coming again. This is the time of God's choice. Are you ready?

End to the Jericho Casino
15:37 Mar 08, '06 / 8 Adar 5766
By Hillel Fendel
Hamas has announced plans to close the
Oasis Casino in Jericho - a million-dollar-a-day operation that enriched
Sharon-crony Martin Schlaff, and allegedly, indirectly, Ariel Sharon himself.
The Oasis Casino, which sometimes had a daily turnover of close to a million dollars, was built in Jericho after the signing of the Oslo Accords, over ten years ago. In 1999, it made a profit of $54 million from the close to 2,900 people who visited the casino daily - 99% of them Israelis.
The casino shut down in late 2000, a month after the PA started the Oslo War, after its roof was used for terrorist gunfire attacks at Israeli targets. The building was heavily damaged by Israeli retaliatory fire, and though it was later refurbished, it has never re-opened.
In September 2005, the German weekly "Focus" reported that Austrian businessman Martin Schlaff, a co-owner of the casino, tried to bribe PM Sharon into re-opening the casino earlier than planned. The reports stated that Schlaff allegedly funneled some $4.5 million into Sharon family bank accounts, possibly via Sharon's friend Cyril Kern, in exchange for a decision to re-open the casino. This took place, the reports state, in February 2002, 16 months after the casino was closed.
Another Sharon controversy regarding the casino involved the Prime Minister's top aide Dov Weisglass. The latter's law firm represented the Oasis casino in Jericho, and in May 2004, the Israel Civil Service Commission declared that this represented a conflict of interest for Weisglass. In July 2004, Weisglass resigned his position as Director of the Prime Minister's Office - but then assumed a new position as "advisor" to PM Sharon.
Yonatan D. HaLevy, writing for the Hebrew website NFC, reports that a new Hamas legislature member, Naif Rajoub, said that the casino, "which was a source of corruption in terms of ethics, finance and security, and is opposed to the values of Islam, will not be re-opened to the public." Rajoub's brother Jibril, formerly a senior security officer in the PA, was responsible, for several years, for security over the casino.
Gambling is against Moslem law, known as Sharia, which Hamas has announced its intention to instate in the Palestinian Authority it now heads. A significant step towards doing so would be the absolute closure of the Jericho casino.
It is always sad when God's children are chastened by the heathen. I still remember vividly after the fall of Viet Nam the news reports I saw where the communists were rehabilitating all the Saigon prostitutes utilized by the United States troopers. They were teaching them various trades such as seamstress so they would not have to sell their bodies on the streets. That was a sad day of rebuke for Christian America. Today, the closing of the Jericho Casino by Islam is another such rebuke by the heathen.
I know I can say with confidence that when the Biblical Kingdom comes there will be no Casinos allowed not only in Jericho, but anywhere on the entire planet. True righteousness will be the law of the land. Righteousness as defined by the Holy God of the Bible. In that day there will be only one religion allowed. There will be only one worldwide government ruled over by one single King of kings. The puritanical values of Christ will be the rule! The Old Testament law will finally come to fulfillment. Biblical Judaism will be complete when Ezekiel's Temple is built on the Temple Mount, and will be the only religion of the Kingdom Age ready to instruct all men how they must live for the next 1000 years. All worship, and all sacrifice will point only to Calvary.
17 Think not that I am come to destroy the law , or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil .
18 For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law , till all be fulfilled .
19 Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.
Friend, I pray this kind of holiness is what you strive to achieve? There is a term coming from the old Puritans that has been lost by today's Evangelical bandwagon. It is called mortification! It is being tempted to sin, but gritting your teeth saying I will not do it because I love Jesus more. Few Christians practice mortification any more. Most have no concept of the principal where by we are to die to sin. I commend every Christian soldier who walked the streets of Saigon, but said no to the offerings from the ladies of the street because their Christian testimony was more important then their carnal lusts. I commend every Jew who had a few hundred bucks in his pocket, but said I will not go to Jericho.
Are you living a life that no longer serves sin? I recognize we are not perfect yet, but we all can do better. The more I study the Bible the holier I find God becomes. As His holiness grows in my apprehension the greater my own sin becomes. It drives me to my knees, but that is a good place for me to be. Friend, I pray the holiness of the God of the Bible will drive you to your knees. I pray that you might grasp what the truth of mortification really means. It is not becoming a legalist who does not gamble, drink, or chew tobacco. It is living a life where when sin abounds grace super abounds. I pray you will desire not to serve sin any longer because you love Jesus the Messiah more.
5 For if we have been planted together in the likeness of his death, we shall be also in the likeness of his resurrection:
6 Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin.

Hamas Launches Web Site
Encouraging Kids to Become ´Martyrs´

The Palestinian Authority's ruling Hamas terror group has launched a web site for children, preaching the moral desirability of being a suicide terrorist via cartoons and children's stories.
The Hamas-run Al-Fateh.net glorifies shahada, martyrdom, and presents the deaths of terrorists attacking Israelis as a time of celebration, according to a report by Palestinian Media Watch.
One of the stories on the site quotes a mother saying that when she heard her son had become a shahid, a martyr, she bought dates, candies and coffee to give out. An entire section of the site is called "Stories of the Shahids," and the most recently posted story honors Hamas terrorist Naseem Ja'abari, who murdered 16 people when he blew himself up on a bus in Be'er Sheva on August 31, 2004.
The page is egalitarian in its encouragement of martyrdom, with a prominently featured drawing of a religiously garbed girl participating in violent attacks (pictured above) on both the homepage and on a second page. The drawing is accompanied by a poem glorifying Jihad, Islamic conquest, and Shahada.
Hamas won the Palestinian Authority's parliamentary elections in January by a large majority, and has since been subject to requests and demands that it at least verbally recognize Israel. On the web site, though, according to PMW, "Israel is repeatedly referred to as 'thief' and 'invader,' and its defeat in battle is both desired and anticipated."
Though the site shares its name with Yasser Arafat's rival terror group, Al-Fateh, the name means "The Conqueror" and is run by Hamas.
The following are excerpts from PMW's translation of a poem on the site and excerpts from the "Stories of the Shahids" section:
We Rose Up
We rose up against the thieves
We rose up against [them], and we shall never surrender
We will rise up in determination, like our ancestors
We will sacrifice, sacrifice our lives
Our father's bidding has taught us
That Jihad is the eternal path
And that the oppressors will be defeated...
We have become devoted and we will never surrender
One day we will defeat all the invaders
We bless and honor the proud
The blood of the shahid has taught us
That Shahada is a new life
O Allah, bless the steps of the rebels
Indeed, Shahada is an open victory
[Al-Fateh website, March 7, 2006]
Stories of the Shahids
"...Our shahid today is the the Shahada-seeker, the hero Naseem Al-Ja'abari."
Naseem's mother tells of her son's merits and says that when she heard of his terrorist action, she took the money he had left her and "went to buy dates and candies for the people who came to congratulate [us]." She goes on to tell how she heard her son committed the suicide bombing. Finally, she sends her greetings to all those people who want to become shahids.
Naseem's mother also gloats that in light of "the success of the heroic attack in Be'er Sheva, the Zionist Secret Service admitted they failed in eliminating the Resistance [euphemism for terror group], its roots and infrastructure."

Considering all the false gods throughout history there is none worse to the God of the Bible then Molech! This demonic god has raised his head many times throughout history with various names, but always the same common action. That of child sacrifice! Archeologists have discovered Molech worship among the Aztec and Inca cultures of South America. The mummified bodies of adolescent girls murdered by the priests of Molech, though they had other names for this demonic god, are being found in profusion. Molech demands the ultimate in depravity of his followers. The sacrifice to him of children to appease his wrath, or fulfill his will is without doubt as low as depravity can go. Molech worship seems to be the last stage of depravity among the barbarians before the God of the Bible takes action. Every culture that has embraced Molech worship has ended in some catastrophic way. The anthropologists try to blame such extinctions on some unknown environmental disaster, but the more enlightened make the correct connection between the judgments by the God of the Bible on the depravity of those cultures. The Mormons in their book of Mormon tell a fairytale of Jesus going to these depraved tribes of South America after the crucifixion with Mormon mythology trying to somehow connect them to supposed lost tribes of Israel? Jesus never went to such depraved cultures as the Mormons falsely claim in the Book of Mormon. To what end? Molech worship and extinction? That is all that comes out of South America during that era. Christianity on the other hand comes out of the Holy Land, and the Bible. The Bible is the true account of Christ. The Book of Mormon a false account.
Today, Mohamed wrote another book which he like the Mormon's claim is a latter day revelation that supercedes the Bible. The most devout of the followers of Mohamed, and his Koran are now actively encouraging Molech worship among the Islamic faithful. It fits like a glove to the Koran, and the character of Mohamed. There is not a single Palestinian Arab outraged by what Hamas is doing to their children. Rather, there is a barbarian willingness to sacrifice even more children! Arafat and his Fatah set the groundwork for Molech worship among the Arab Palestinians, but Hamas intends to take it to new depths of depravity. The Arab Palestinian culture intends to make the Aztecs and Incas look like babes when they finish with their style of Molech.
The Jews faced Molech worship many times throughout their history. God did His best in the Bible to warn them of the dangers.
30 Take heed to thyself that thou be not snared by following them, after that they be destroyed from before thee; and that thou inquire not after their gods, saying, How did these nations serve their gods? even so will I do likewise.
31 Thou shalt not do so unto the LORD thy God: for every abomination to the LORD, which he hateth, have they done unto their gods; for even their sons and their daughters they have burnt in the fire to their gods.
32 What thing soever I command you, observe to do it: thou shalt not add thereto, nor diminish from it.
The most common form of Molech worship was tied to idolatry. A bronze Molech in a sitting Buddha position with arms held out as if ready to embrace was the most common form. A huge fire was built in the lap of the idol, and stoked until the arms glowed red from the heat. The children were then brought by the parents, and cast onto the open arms of Molech. I can't envision a greater example of total depravity then that which would convince a parent to commit such a horror to their own child. The braggadocios of Hamas using the mothers of their own shahada children comes close. This Allah of the Koran has convinced the Palestinian Arabs that he takes pleasure in their child sacrifices. He takes pleasure in their hate for the Jews living in the Holy Land. He would have all who follow him to celebrate the death of 16 civilian Jews murdered in a bus bombing. It is his pleasure for the mothers of Molech to pass out candies and sweets to all who come to celebrate the death of her son whom she cast into the fiery arms of Molech. You can see how Molech worship fits Islam like a glove that they call shahada!
Only Islam could riot in a frenzy of death over some cartoon charactuers of Mohamed, and then make their own cartoons exalting the sacrifice of their own children as if it is some honorable cause? The false gods of this generation are presented in all their foolishness, and yet the masses follow. There will be no excuse to any who have rejected Christ for these false gods. I pray you will not be so foolish? I pray you will come to the Christ of the Bible for salvation. His arms will never burn the seeker who comes with all his heart, soul, and might. His desire is to embrace you as a lost sinner, and forgive you of your sin. He shed His blood at Calvary because it alone can be the only acceptable sacrifice for sin. Only Christ has the power to save. Won't you leave the crowds of this foolish generation, and come to Him? Do not make the mistake of thinking you can somehow mix with this world of sin, and yet be acceptable to the Holy God of the Bible.
37 In the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried, saying, If any man thirst, let him come unto me , and drink.
38 He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water.
3 Incline 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.

Former IDF Chief of Staff:
Iranian Military Attacks Viable
09:47 Mar 10, '06 / 10 Adar 5766
By Ezra HaLevi
Former IDF Chief of Staff Moshe Ya'alon said publicly this week that an Israeli military attack on Iran is both viable and possible - with the participation of the United States and Europe.
Ya'alon spoke at the Washington, D.C.-based Hudson Institute, where he outlined detailed military options available to the Jewish state in dealing with Iran's bid to obtain nuclear weapons as it calls for Israel to be "wiped off the map."
Israel destroyed Iraq's Osarik reactor in 1981, in an operation that was condemned almost universally, but which prevented Saddam Hussein from possessing nuclear weapons and was later acknowledged by the U.S. to have been the right move.
Iran's nuclear facilities are scattered throughout the large country, so an attack, which would necessitate dozens of simultaneous attacks, has been declared impractical – at least publicly – until Ya'alon's comments. Ya'alon said that, though, that such an operation was no more difficult than Israel's pinpoint strikes of wanted terrorists. He said, though, that such an operation would have to receive the participation of American and European air forces in addition to Israel, and should be put into effect after Iran is economically and politically isolated.
He acknowledged that Israel would certainly be the target of Iranian retaliation following the attack, but expressed confidence that Israel's anti-missile systems could protect the country, whether missiles are fired directly from Iran, by the Hizbullah launchers amassed along Israel's northern border or through Kassam rockets and other missiles being amassed within Judea and Samaria. "Israel is able to strike at Iran in a number of ways, not just through air strikes," Ya'alon added, "Israel has a number of options."
Ya'alon warned, though, that Iran's nuclear attainment would only be delayed by a few years, and not eliminated altogether, by a successful air strike. In the interim, Ya'alon hoped a regime change could be brought about in the Islamic country.
As of now, Ya'alon said, the Islamic republic is just 6-18 months away from nuclear capability and 3-5 years away from an operation nuclear bomb.
IDF and defense officials have sharply criticized Ya'alon's statements from several angles, claiming that there is nothing to be gained by Ya'alon disclosing military strategy publicly and worrying that his words will lead the international community to dismiss the Iranian threat, assuming Israel can handle it on its own.
Meanwhile, Iranian leader Mahmoud Ahmadinejad addressed a huge gathering of Iranians in the country's western region of Lorestan Thursday and was met with cheers after declaring: "[This nation] will not allow others to treat it with a bullying attitude, even if [they] are international bullies…They know they are not capable of inflicting the slightest blow on the Iranian nation because they need the Iranian nation. They will suffer more and they are vulnerable."
On Wednesday, Iran's delegate to the UN atomic watchdog agency threatened that the U.S. would face ''harm and pain'' if the UN Security Council becomes involved.
The Holy Land is moving quickly to a crises. Only 3 - 5 years is given before some great move must take place by the world powers. Iran is predicted in the Bible to play a critical roll in these now inevitable events. I expect the events are going to change quickly over the next 3 - 5 years. I would not be surprised to see Israel give up their nuclear bombs as another attempt to appease Islam. Rather then Israel invading Iran, I expect Iran to invade Israel!
There is only one reason why I expect the events of today to do such a turn around, and that is because of Ezekiel 38 & 39. It may not happen like I'm thinking, but the certain thing coming is that Israel is going to get involved in some phony peace plan that will cause them to put down their guard.
7 Be thou prepared, and prepare for thyself, thou, and all thy company that are assembled unto thee, and be thou a guard unto them.
8 After 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.
God has clearly warned the secular Jews of these latter years to be prepared for an Islamic invasion. He has told them to be on their guard against them. Rather then listen to God the secular Jewish government has put into practice an appeasement program. The American pressure for the Road Map is the source behind the Gaza giveaway that put Israel on this road to appeasement. I suspect the appeasement will not end until Israel agrees to a nuclear free Middle East by giving up their own nuclear bombs. Once the Jews as the Road Map dictates give up all of Judah and Samaria including most of Jerusalem for the capital of the proposed Palestinian State, and the giving up of their sovereignty over the Temple Mount that then giving up their nuclear bombs will be but a little thing. The secular Jews will in effect give up all their Biblical aspirations for a Jewish Kingdom that will rule the world in peace. They will have given up on the coming of their Messiah. They will have given up on God as being a part of their future in the Holy Land by giving the Temple Mount as an appeasement to Islam. They will have decided to be just another secular state like all the heathen round about them.
The Bible says these foolish bleeding heart secular Jews are going to lay Israel wide open for an Islamic invasion, and Islam will be quick to respond.
11 And thou shalt say, I will go up to the land of unwalled villages; I will go to them that are at rest, that dwell safely, all of them dwelling without walls, and having neither bars nor gates,
Iran (Persia in the Bible) is clearly defined as a major player in this predicted invasion. All the appeasement by the Jews will have no effect on this generation of Islam. They have been nurtured in hate, and are now beyond repentance. Nothing can appease the hate Islam holds for the Jews. The giving up on all the Promised Land hanging on to just a mere sliver, giving up on 2000 years of expectations for Jerusalem, and most importantly giving up on ever building a Jewish Temple on the Temple Mount will not be enough appeasement for Islam.
Friend, all the peace plans by the secular politicians are only going to lead to Armageddon. Mankind is incapable of ever making peace. Sin is the problem, and not until the sin problem is solved can there ever be real peace. The problem with sin was solved at Calvary for those who have come to Christ. Our future is fixed in His blood. We have made the ultimate peace agreement with the Holy God of all creation. Christ has died in our place for our sin at Calvary. The proof of His sacrifice being acceptable was His resurrection from the dead. The proof of our accepting Him as our only Savior will be our own resurrection onto eternal life. Won't you come to this Christ of the Bible?
5 For if we have been planted together in the likeness of his death, we shall be also in the likeness of his resurrection :
1 Peter 1:3-5
3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which according to his abundant mercy hath begotten us again unto a lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,
4 To an inheritance incorruptible, and undefiled, and that fadeth not away, reserved in heaven for you,
5 Who are kept by the power of God through faith unto salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.

Olmert Border Plan Attacked on all Sides
Kadima's fifth straight fall in election polls
Politicians from both the left and right of the political spectrum criticized Acting Prime Minister Ehud Olmert on Friday for his comments on shaping permanent borders and building up the disputed E-1 zone between Jerusalem and Ma'aleh Adumim.
Olmert told Ha'aretz that if he is elected prime minister, Israel will set down permanent borders within four years, separating itself from the "decisive majority" of the Palestinian population of the West Bank, and that he will build up E-1, despite American opposition.
Olmert said he plans to offer the settlers a deal in an effort to reach an agreement about Israel's withdrawal line in the West Bank: convergence into expanded settlement blocs in exchange for evacuation of settlements beyond whatever border is set.
Â The Acting Prime Minister's statements and his accusations of incitement against Likud chairman Binyamin Netanyahu will expedite Kadima's downfall in the polls, Likud leaders claimed Thursday.
"The weakening of Kadima and the strengthening of the Likud will continue the more Kadima moves to the Left," said MK Gilad Erdan, a leader in the Likud campaign team. "Olmert's comments show once again how irresponsible he is for being willing to give land to Hamas. No matter where he would draw the border, it will just be a starting point for negotiations that will force Israel to give up strategic areas, making peace impossible."
This has been Kadima's fifth straight week to fall in the polls, slipping two more seats from last week to 34-35. Likud rose about half a mandate after Friday's statements to between 17 and 18, and Labor climbed to 18 mandates.
It is clear to me that there is no Israeli politician willing to stand for God, and against the US led Road Map. Ehud Olmert, heir apparent of Ariel Sharon, has already published his 4 year plan which includes the give away of most of the Holy Land to the Islamic Arab barbarians. Olmert represents the most bleeding heart liberals found among the Jewish politicians. He wants to allow the formation of a heathen State right where the Bible says the Jewish Messiah will appear. At Jerusalem, and on the Temple Mount. Bibi Netanyahu the conservative candidate has the same plan. The only difference is he has said he expects payment from the Palestinians for the giveaway. Since the Palestinians are a welfare society I suppose Netanyahu expects the world to pay his price for this phony peace?
What has happened in Israel among the secular Jewish majority is that they do not trust in the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. They have come to trust in their own bow and sword to defeat their enemies. They think that by their own wit they can plot their own peace plan for the Holy Land. They would rather trust their own politicians then the God of their fathers. The God of David has become a myth to them. They do not call upon Him for the deliverance they need. They would rather trust the gentile United States. This is sin in the eyes of the God of the Bible, and will bring great chastisement to the Jews of this generation. they must learn the lesson of David. They must learn that only God is their rock. Only He can save them from their enemies!
Friend, the greatest enemy you face today is sin. The Bible says you are enslaved to this evil taskmaster, and it is by your own free will. You leave sin control your life. The provision has been made to free you from this terrible enemy, but you must make the decision to leave it's evil tentacles. The power of Christ is more then sufficient to break those bonds of sin, but you must come to Him before you can be saved. Christ will not force His salvation on anyone who refuses. It is your choice! Won't you come to this Christ of the Bible? He wants to be your rock. He wants to be your deliverer. He wants to save you from your greatest enemy.

Hamas Platform: Terrorism is
10:44 Mar 12, '06 / 12 Adar 5766
By Hillel Fendel
The Hamas movement, about to assume control over much of Judea/Samaria, presented its platform over the weekend - defining Israel as "the Zionist enemy" and approving continued terrorism.
Ismail Haniye, designated to be the prime minister in the new Hamas Authority, presented the document to Mahmoud Abbas, the chairman of the Palestinian Authority, in the framework of the efforts to form a new government. Known as Abu Mazen, Abbas is seeking to lead his Fatah organization into a coalition with Hamas, but the two terrorist groups have not yet succeeded in finding sufficient common ground.
The Hamas platform, as outlined in the document, states that the dispute with the "Zionist enemy" continues, Israel is a conquering state, and that the path of resistance - a codeword for terrorism - is a "legitimate means of attaining the Palestinian nation's goals." The platform further states that hudna - a ceasefire that can be suspended the moment one side feels confident of victory - is also a legitimate tool.
"The conditions for a continued ceasefire," Hamas states, "are an end to all the attacks against the Palestinian nation, and the release of the all the Palestinian prisoners [terrorists].
"The Zionist government did not allow the negotiations to succeed," according to Hamas. "Hamas will be happy to learn of a more efficient way of achieving the Palestinian goals... We will relate to previously-signed agreements according to the interests of the Palestinian nation... Negotiations are merely a means, and not a goal; past talks have not provided us with our minimum demands. However, negotiations in the future will be considered, if they serve our interests."
More excerpts: "The Palestinians have the right to return to every centimeter of their lands, and this right cannot be ceded. Every Palestinian has the right to return to his home and land from which he was banished, and not to give up any morsel of his land."
It was first reported that Abbas had rejected the Hamas document as being too vague and bellicose, but this was later denied. Saed Seyam, a Hamas member of the Palestinian Legislative Council (PLC), said, "Abbas has not rejected a Hamas letter he received on Friday [nor] the program of the new cabinet."
Hamas spokesman Assad Farhat said late last week that Hamas absolutely does not accept the Road Map plan, which he called an "American Zionist program."
Hamas is now officially on record as declaring themselves a forever barbarian state that expects only what is in their own interests. They reject the Road Map because it does not give them everything. The great future victory for the world politicians will be to get the barbarians to accept the Road Map if only for a moment. To just lie, and say they will live peacefully with their Jewish neighbor. The politicians have their hands full in dealing with these barbarians, but I'm confident that in the end they will get the lies they expect from them. This phony peace platform that only fools could support will I'm sure go forward.
Hamas is as clear as clear can be that they will never accept a single Jew to ever live in the Holy Land. Every centimeter of land they control must be purged of the Jewish enemy. It was so in Gaza, and it will be true for Judah and Samaria. Over 250,000 Independent Fundamental Jewish Settlers must be forcefully removed from their homes because of the Road Map. Only a fool would think Hamas will ever be satisfied with all of Judah, and Samaria. They want it all, and all they would get if it were not that God has a different plan for the future of the Holy Land. Olmert talks of arranging some kind of agreement from the settlers, but we all know it will be a one-sided agreement with no concern over the settler's desires to obey the God of their fathers. The Independent Fundamental Jewish Settlers are conservative Jews. Olmert and his fellow liberals hate them even more then the Palestinians. They recognize the rights of these barbarians, and do not recognize the rights of their own brothers who do not agree with their liberal foolishness. Everyone expected a civil war when they saw the rights of the conservatives so blatantly trampled upon in Gaza by the liberal majority, but it did not happen. Had the liberals been displaced from their comfortable dwellings in the big cities such a Tel Aviv there would have been a civil war, but these settlers are of a different sort. They put their lives on the line putting fear into the hearts of the barbarians with their boldness, but refuse to fight their brother Jews in the face of one of the greatest outrages of the decades.
I look at the character of these Independent Fundamental Jewish Setters, and can't help but think they will be the first to be redeemed by the Lamb in the next dispensation. They have the character needed to stand for the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob during times of Great Tribulation. They have already been tested and proved. Right now they are living on the tribal lands of their heritage. It would be an easy thing for God to assign them a tribal heritage from where they live right now. Folks, it just might be that the rapture will take place before this remnant of special Jews are displaced from their homes by the secular liberal majority now running Israeli politics?
Are you ready? Are you trusting in the Lamb? Jesus Christ willing allowed sinful men to nail Him to Calvary's Cross. His body was torn as none other. His blood was shed unto death so that a perfect sacrifice for sin acceptable to the Holy God of the Bible would be made. This was the Biblical plan from the beginning. It will not be complete until He returns to rule a worldwide Kingdom in perfect righteousness from the Holy Land, Jerusalem, and the Temple Mount. Have you come to this Biblical Lamb for the forgiveness of your sin? Why not seal your salvation right now by coming to Christ?
29 The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold the Lamb of God , which taketh away the sin of the world.
34 And I saw, and bare record that this is the Son of God.
35 Again the next day after John stood, and two of his disciples;
36 And looking upon Jesus as he walked, he saith, Behold the Lamb of God !

Purim Attack Prevented: 20-Kg.
11:04 Mar 13, '06 / 13 Adar 5766
By Hillel Fendel
A bomb was found Sunday night when two Arabs tried to bring it through a checkpoint near Shechem (Nablus) for planned detonation on the festive holiday of Purim on Tuesday. Israel is on high alert.
The small but powerful, almost 20-kilogram bomb was hidden in a large jar of olives, which two 18-year-olds were carrying in a duffle bag.
The two youths acted "strangely," an officer said, arousing the suspicions of the checkpoint soldiers. The soldiers told them to place their bags on the ground, at which point a suspicious object was noted, and the entire checkpoint entered "suicide terrorist" mode. The terrorists were told to move away from the bags, the checkpoint was closed, and sappers were called to the site. Upon their arrest, the Arabs told investigators that the bomb originated in Shechem, where terrorist activity has been on the increase of late.
Israel is on high terrorist alert throughout the country, and particularly in the north, because of fear of Purim terrorist attacks. The holiday is tonight (Monday) and tomorrow in most of the country, while in Jerusalem, it is tomorrow night and Wednesday.
Israel's intelligence community is considering 59 different terrorist warnings, including 14 specific ones. Three specific warnings were received just last night (Sunday). A closure has been imposed on the PA-controlled areas in Judea and Samaria, and thousands of policemen and volunteers are manning areas around the country.
The threat from the Hizbullah terror organization in Lebanon is also being taken seriously. Several roads have been closed in the north, and farmers are not permitted to farm their lands adjacent to the Israel-Lebanon border fence.
The Tel Aviv District Court sentenced Lanin Muhammed Al-Turi to 16 years in prison this morning, for his attempt to kill an Israeli and kidnap a soldier and transfer him to Hamas in Ramallah.
Two wanted Tanzim terrorists were arrested by Israeli forces in Bethlehem during the night.
No Kassam rockets have been fired from Gaza since Sunday afternoon, when two were fired at the western Negev. No damage resulted.
The story of Purim is found in the book of Esther. Folks, there is absolutely no difference between the Persian followers of Hyman, and the Islamic supporters of Hamas. Both groups had and have the extermination of the Jews as their boldly declared goal.
My short comment for today is that Islam should take note of what the God of the Bible did to those former haters of the Jews! The same happened to the Nazis of the last generation, and Ezekiel 39 predicts the same end to the Islamic haters of the Jews in our generation.

JERICHO, West Bank - Israeli forces raided a jail Tuesday in the West Bank town of Jericho, demanding the surrender of prisoners and sparking a shootout with Palestinian police that left one Palestinian officer dead and another man wounded, Palestinian security officials said.
A senior Israeli military official said Tuesday that the inmates must either surrender or face death.
The colonel, who briefed reporters, said Israel's main objective is to arrest those at the prison. "The objective is to arrest them, but there are no negotiations. Either they come out or they will be killed," the colonel told reporters.
He said that of 200 people inside, 44 have surrendered so far. He said the main targets of the raid, including those involved in the assassination of an Israeli Cabinet minister in 2001, have not yet come out.
“Our prison is surrounded on all sides by Israelis. They are asking us over loudspeaker to come out,” Ahed Abu Ghoulmi, one of the prisoners, told The Associated Press by telephone. “We will not come out under any circumstances.”
Among the targets of the raid is Ahmed Saadat, head of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, a radical PLO faction. Saadat, who was elected to the Palestinian legislature in January, is being held for ordering the assassination of Israeli Tourism Minister Rehavam Zeevi in 2001.
Saadat was being held at the jail, along with four other PFLP members, including the gunman who killed Zeevi, under the supervision of U.S. and British guards. But after Hamas won the Jan. 25 Palestinian parliamentary elections, top leaders of the militant group said they planned to free Saadat.
In addition, to the five PFLP prisoners, Israel was also demanding the surrender of Fuad Shobaki, the alleged mastermind of an illegal weapons shipment to the Palestinian Authority several years ago, surrender to Israeli forces.
U.S., U.K. observers depart
Israeli forces entered the town Tuesday morning and surrounded the prison, and originally demanded over loudspeakers that only six prisoners give themselves up. The troops then broke into the jail in a bulldozer and armored personnel carriers, and engaged in a shootout with the Palestinian police, said Akram Rajoub, the local security commander.
One policeman standing near the prison gate was killed in the shootout, security officials said. At least one other man was wounded in the exchange, the officials said.
The raid on the jail, which holds prisoners accused of assassinating an Israeli Cabinet minister, was the most high-profile Israeli incursion into a Palestinian town in months and came just two weeks before Israel holds national elections.
The jail had been monitored by U.S. and British observers, but they withdrew just before the raid, following complaints that Palestinian officials had not shown enough concern for their safety. It appeared their departure precipitated Israel’s decision to step in.
British Foreign Minister Jack Straw issued a statement Tuesday to the British parliament saying the observers were withdrawn because the Palestinian Authority had ignored repeated British requests for guarantees regarding their security.
“Ultimately, the safety of our personnel has to take precedence,” Straw said.
Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas said earlier he held Britain and the U.S. responsible for the raid.
Palestinians threaten to Americans, British
Palestinian gunmen on Tuesday attacked offices with ties to the U.S. and Britain in protest over an Israeli arrest raid at a West Bank prison.
Gunmen fired shots at the British cultural center and briefly stormed the offices of AMIDEAST, a private organization that provides English classes and testing services.
"We don't want to see any Americans here," one of the gunmen shouted when Palestinian police approached the AMIDEAST office. Later, some 300 Palestinians led by gunmen marched toward the British cultural center.
A Palestinian militant spokesman on Tuesday warned American and British citizens to leave Palestinian territories or they would be kidnapped in response to an Israeli raid on a West Bank prison.
“We call upon all American and British citizens to leave Palestinian territories immediately otherwise they will be subject to kidnapping and other consequences,” said Abu Qusai, a spokesman for the Al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigades.
He said Americans and Britons had two hours to leave.
The barbarians are at it again. They first agreed to international overseers because the world has tired of their revolving jail house door for convicted terrorists. They expected the UN to assign easily intimidated international troops from Tim-buck-too, but were thwarted when American and British regulars showed up. The revolving door policy was checkmated. The next step was to intimidate the jail watchers with threats of releasing anti American and British assaults by the barbarian masses. I suspect the UN will be passing a resolution censuring the Israeli government for the present intrusion into Jericho? The UN did nothing when Hamas boldly proclaimed that their first act as a government was going to be to free these jailed international terrorists, and parade them around as heroes.
Jericho is a picture of how the Road Map is going to work once the heathen Arab Palestinian State is established. Gaza is another example with daily rocket attacks against Israel. The international community does nothing forcing the Jews to get into the mix in order to protect themselves. The international community then criticizes Israel for enlarging the hostilities. Once the barbarian state is formed Israeli intrusions will take on a even higher censures from the international community paramount to an invasion of a sovereign helpless nation.
It was a sad day when the secular Jews gave away Jericho to the barbarians. I have no doubt both Moses and Joshua turned over in their graves. Jericho represented the first victory in the Promised Land during the first Exodus, and now represents the first giveaway in this third Exodus. Folks, the Jews are going backwards! They have buckled under the Road Map pressure coming from our Evangelical White House! Everything that can be done to stop the return of the LORD Jesus Christ seems to be part of the political correctness of this generation. Every attempt to ridicule the Bible, and replace it with the Koran as the book of the Holy Land seems to achieve popular support. The barbarian kingdom is preferred to the Kingdom of God by this generation of both Jew and gentile. The time is certainly ripe for dispensational change. The foolishness of a barbarian kingdom is exposed again and again, but this generation continues the plunge to Armageddon!
Friend, the only answer is Christ! Are you trusting in Him for your salvation? He is the LORD of hosts coming to redeem the Jew first in the next dispensation. He is the Capitan of the host of the LORD who revealed to Joshua on the plains of Jericho where the real power for victory resides. It is no small thing that the Passover looms so high in the account of the first entrance by the Jews into the Holy Land. The sacrificial Lamb of God was planed from the beginning to come to the Holy Land, Jerusalem, and the Temple Mount! He is coming again according to the Bible. He is coming again to the Holy Land, Jerusalem, and the Temple Mount in order to establish His Kingdom. Friend, is this Christ of the Bible, the soon coming LORD of hosts, in whom you trust? Is He your Passover Lamb? Have you come to Him for the forgiveness of your soul? It is only His blood that can wash away sin! Why not come to Him right now? Accept Him as the sacrificial Lamb before you must face Him as the LORD of hosts. Today, is the day dear friend. The day for you to come to Christ!
8 Who is this King of glory? The LORD strong and mighty, the LORD mighty in battle.
9 Lift up your heads, O ye gates; even lift them up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in.
10 Who is this King of glory? The LORD of hosts, he is the King of glory. Selah.

EU: Recent violence has no bearing on aid to PA
The European Union condemned widespread Palestinian violence that followed Tuesday's Jericho Prison raid, but said neither the attacks on EU offices in Gaza City nor the kidnapping of foreigners would alter its plans to give the interim Palestinian Authority a 143 million dollar emergency package to help pay its billsÂ until the new Hamas government takes power. "We want to meet the challenges of the Palestinian people," said EU Commissioner Benita Ferrero-Waldner after meeting with PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas in Austria. Abbas said he would continue to push the new PA government to adhere to previous Israeli-Palestinian agreements and reject violence - efforts that so far have failed to produce any results.
US holds veto over UN condemnation of Israel
The threat of a US veto hovers over deliberations Wednesday regarding Qatar's bid for a UN Security Council to condemn Israel's Jericho jail siege and the detainment of the killers of former cabinet minister Rehavam Ze'evi.Â A draft statement by Qatari Ambassador Abdulaziz Al-Nasser, speaking for the Arab nations, would condemn "Israel's violent incursion" in besieging the Jericho prison, and would demand that Israel return the prisoners it seized in an effort to "return the situation to that which existed prior to the Israeli military attack."
Imagine what would happen if Ben Ladin were a prisoner in the Jericho Jail. The prisoners now in Israeli custody are as filthy a terrorist to them as Ben Ladin is to us. The Hamas barbarians thrilled with their victory using democracy to climb to power among the Islamic Arab Palestinians planed to release these murderers, and then parade them through the streets thumbing their noses at the civilized world. The UN has proved itself impotent once again as these barbarians wave their fannies in their face. Islam giggles as they once again call for a resolution against Israel, and watch the UN buckle under their pressure. The Koran gains prestige on the backs of the foolish politicians of this generation. From the liberal secular Jews of Israel through the Evangelical White House of the United States the fools continue to play into the hands of these Islamic barbarians.
The fool of fools is now saying they must continue to financially support the barbarians, or worse will probably happen. No one has thought it might actually be better if this barbarian welfare state were forced to do something productive rather then living on handouts. The Bible says if they won't work neither should they eat! The very best thing the world could do for the Arab Palestinians is give them some self respect. Forcing them to work, or else they will not eat just might be the very best the world could do for them. These Islamic barbarians have convinced themselves that they can extract tribute from the civilized world by just growling and showing their teeth. Their armies have proved a total failure whenever they have tried to stand and fight, but they have found the bleeding hearts of this generation the right kind of fools willing to give them everything they want.
I am convinced the reason why the Independent Fundamental Jewish Settlers are so hated by everyone is because they have stood in the face of these Islamic barbarians, and proved their ferocity is of no effect when the God of the Bible is brought into the fray. The Islamic Arab Palestinians like to play the game before the world that they are the tiny David fighting against the mighty Goliath. The truth is it is the Independent Fundamental Jewish Settlers who are truly the tiny David hated even by their own secular brothers. The world does all it can to economically ruin this small remnant of Jews. The Presbyterian Church is the latest to call for an economic boycott of any products coming from Judah and Samaria produced by Jews. Arab products are fine. It is just Jewish products the Presbyterians want to boycott. This is filthy racism through and through, but then why should the Presbyterians care about ethics and morals? They show their hate for the Jews by their action, but hide behind international doubletalk so the truth can be bypassed. These settlers are extremely productive, and in spite of all the attempts to ruin their economy they continue to work hard making a living. They even employ many Arabs which gives the world fits in trying to find ways to hurt the Jewish settlers, but not the Arabs.
24 Proud and haughty scorner is his name, who dealeth in proud wrath.
25 The desire of the slothful killeth him; for his hands refuse to labour.
26 He coveteth greedily all the day long: but the righteous giveth and spareth not.
The Bible always proves true over the Koran. The greed of today's barbarians will prove their downfall. It will not be the fools of this generation who will bring down the barbarians, but the God of the Bible. The God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. Allah the false god of Abraham, Ishmael, and Esau who is the god of the Koran encourages the barbarians, and in the end will kill them. These proud and haughty Islamic Arab Palestinians are headed to the most horrific destruction recorded in all of literature. They are headed for Ezekiel 39! Read it for yourself.
Sin is the reason why we must all work in order to eat. Hard sweaty work is the curse of sin from the beginning. The greater sin is to sit on your fanny, and let everyone else work then intimidate them to feed you. The God of the Bible does not put up with this kind of behavior for very long. Islam is soon to find out where their giddy laughter is going to end. Only Christ can overcome sin! Friend, are you trusting in Him? Heaven is going to be a wonderful place. There we will never work again, but we will have the joy of serving the God of the Bible forever. Only those who are born again will be given this privilege to serve for all eternity. The rest will find themselves in hell with the barbarians where they will be in torment forever, and ever. Oh dear friend, come to Christ for salvation. Don't put it off for another day that never seems to come. Chose Christ and live!

Gush Katif Expellees to Build Gush Lachish
13:18 Mar 17, '06 / 17 Adar 5766
By Hillel Fendel
A new Gush Katif - "Katif Bloc of Settlements" - is to arise in the Lachish area, east of the Be'er Sheva-Kiryat Gat area, west of Hevron. It will be built mainly by former residents of Gush Katif.
Five new communities are scheduled to be built along a north-south 15-kilometer range - though most of them are still very much in the planning stage. It could be anywhere from 2-4 years before all the permits and approvals are obtained and construction is completed.
Lior Kalfa, who has taken over the duties of the Regional Council head of the Gush Katif expellees - despite the large distances that separate them one from another - outlined the five new communities he hopes will arise:
"The northernmost and largest one is planned, with G-d's help, for a beautiful hilltop area known as Givat Egoz, not far from Kiryat Gat. Families from N'vei Dekalim and elsewhere in Gush Katif, who are now living in Nitzan, Ein Tzurim and Jerusalem hotels, hope to move there and build it up into a beautiful town. The problem is that the government is giving us a hard time with all the approvals and permits, but I truly hope that its policies will soon change, in accordance with its declarations about developing the Negev."
The town of Egoz is to be designed by the same architect who designed N'vei Dekalim, and will be planned for 600 families, making it slightly larger than N'vei Dekalim.
Proceeding southward, the next community to be built, Kalfa said, "will be a new neighborhood adjacent to the existing town/moshav of Amatzia. At present, families from Moshav Katif and others are living in pre-fab caravillas there, and are fortunate to be living close to where their permanent homes are to be built. Next on the route is Mirsham, which will be just west of the planned security partition wall. Families from Tel Katifa and N'vei Dekalim hope to build it and move in; in two weeks, they will be moving to caravilas in nearby Shekef."
The fourth in line is Kibbutz Shomeriya, which already exists. Some 50 families from Atzmona moved in last week, after the government paid the remaining members of the failing secular kibbutz some $300,000 each to move out.
Last in line, south of Shomeriya, is Karmit, northeast of Be'er Sheva. It is being designated for the former residents of Kfar Darom, who are currently living in a high-rise building in Ashkelon. The Kfar Darom-Karmit connection has not yet been finalized, however.
Kalfa explained that this will not be the only bloc of settlements to be formed out of what was Gush Katif. He said that in addition to the 300-400 families he foresees living in the Lachish bloc, there will also be three other blocs of new "settlers:"
* Close to 450 families who will opt to remain in the Nitzan-Nitzanim area, north of Ashkelon;
* 150 families living in the Halutza Sands area, due south of the southernmost Gush Katif community Morag, and along the Israel-Egypt border. Approximately 100 families already live there, in Yated and Yevul, and another 50 are expected to arrive.
* Close to 300 families in the Nachal Sorek area, building new towns in Yad Binyamin, Chafetz Chaim, and Yesodot.
"It's as we always said," Kalfa summed up. "Whoever doesn't want one Gush Katif, will end up with a few of them."
Michal Shomron, a former resident of N'vei Dekalim who is leading the Egoz project, said, "This is our mission now: to actualize the long-waiting vision of settlement in this area, until, with G-d's help, we can return to N'vei Dekalim and Gush Katif. [We may be angry at the State], but not at the Land of Israel..."
Each plot of land in Egoz will cost $10-15,000, and 100 families have signed up thus far. "Egoz will be similar to N'vei Dekalim," Shomron said, 'with the same educational institutions - a yeshiva high school, a higher-level yeshiva, etc. It will be located in a beautiful green area, and a large-scale tourism project is planned for the area. Investors have already started showing interest. Employment opportunities will abound, as we will be only 15 minutes from Kiryat Gat and 45 from Tel Aviv."
I do certainly pray these Independent Fundamental Jewish Settlers will have beautiful hill tops and green fields wherewith to live after the backstabbing they have gone through by the secular government of Israel. They are truly the first victims of the Road Map. They were rooted out of their legal communities when the political climate changed due to the pressure put on the secular Jewish government by our Evangelical White House. The spirit of these settlers is what makes them the best Jews living in the Holy Land during this present generation. They are the remnant of Jews who stood with their families in the face of the barbarians, and backed them down. They settled in the midst of the Gaza Strip because of their convictions that the God of the Bible said they should occupy His Promised Land. While the barbarians wasted the land living in poverty these Jews prospered even when the worldly bleeding hearts called for economic boycotts against them. They are a hard working sort who have revived the pioneer spirit of the American westward movement. Among all the Jews living in Israel today only they show the spirit of Ezra - Nehemiah working with trowel in one hand and sword in the other.
The government has given them one of those failed secular Kibbutz experiments the liberals so much like to extol as a Utopia until reality sets in. Watch these hard working Independent Fundamental Jewish Settlers make it go. Watch all of these little communities exhibit what is truly the blessings of the God of the Bible. It is sad that the government after treating them so terribly in Gush Katif should now continue their badgering by causing all kinds of little legal objections even though they are building within the green line. It is a sad indictment on the liberals when they gain control, and the way they treat their conservative brethren. These Jews could have fought to the death to keep their homes. They fought the barbarians fearlessly for almost 40 years with many casualties. They just could not find it in their hearts to fight their liberal brothers in similar manner no matter how badly they were treated.
The Independent Fundamental Jewish Settlers of Gush Katif represent only some 8,000 settlers. There are more then 250,000 more Independent Fundamental Jewish Settlers living right now in Judah and Samaria. The Road Map has targeted them as the next to go! They began moving into Judah and Samaria after the 1967 Six Day War. They strengthened a number of small Jewish settlements that survived the Jordanian occupation. They then expanded Jewish presents all over the West Band recognizing God's hand in opening these tribal lands for occupation during this third miraculous Exodus. Like the settlers of the Gaza they faced the barbarians who outnumbered them, and backed them down. Yes, there were bloody confrontations, but these Independent Fundamental Jewish Settlers stood their ground. They not only backed down the barbarians, but they thrived on the same land that the barbarians lived in poverty. God blessed them, and for this they are hated!
Today, Judah and Samaria has become a curse to the secular Jews as was Gaza. The removal of the Gush Katif Settlers has not brought the liberal Utopia they promised. The rocket attacks are at the highest level out of the Gaza as they ever were. All the secular Jews have done by persecuting these conservative settlers is make the curse they brought down on their own heads by disobeying God even worse. Watch what happens to all who promote this foolish Road Map. Watch as former blessings are turned into an ugly curse.
Friend, when we do what God commands it goes well for us. The worst battles in life are spiritual. They are far more bloody then any physical battle, yet God always blesses us when we are obedient. The first requirement of obedience in this dispensation is to come to Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. The rest of the Bible has no meaning if this first step is not taken. There is no salvation unless you obey this commandment first. Won't you come to Christ right now?
17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.
18 He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.
19 And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.
20 For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved.

"Dear Adults, Now It´s Your
13:22 Mar 17, '06 / 17 Adar 5766
By Ilan Maeir
A 16-year-old resident of Beit El in Judea/Samaria wrote the following exhortation to his neighbors, in light of the Face-to-Face get-out-the-religious/right-wing-vote campaign currently underway.
• We, the Youth - gave up our summer vacation and went around giving out orange ribbons.
• We, the Youth - were in Kfar Maimon, where you asked us not to go wild, so we didn't.
• We, the Youth - sat with self-sacrifice on roads and highways in order to prevent the expulsion.
• We, the Youth - were arrested and tried by a twisted system of "law and order."
• We, the Youth - sat for days and weeks in prison, sometimes in indescribably harsh conditions.
• We, the Youth - marched for many kilometers in the fields of the south in order to save the Gush.
• We, the Youth - lived in crowded conditions in Gush Katif because we believed that in this way we could prevent the uprooting.
• We, the Youth - we were hit in our heads and all over our bodies in Amona by wild men known as "law enforcers."
And you, the adults - and excuse me for the generalization - mainly supported us from behind. You told us, "Yasher koach, great job, what wonderful youth!" You told us, "We have jobs and family." And you know something? You were right. At that time, what we did was our job.
But now, the moment of truth has arrived. And now we say to you that the "Face to Face" campaign is your job. Now it's your turn.
• Now it's your turn. Because you told us, "You have to look at the long-range."
• Now it's your turn. Because there's no chance that the average secular person will pay real attention to a young 16-year-old.
• Now it's your turn. Because to tell the truth, it's hard for us to know how to explain and persuade someone who doesn't believe.
• Now it's your turn. Because according to the natural course of events, if a Kadima government is formed, it won't leave a single stone in place here.
• Now it's your turn. Because if you stay at home now, it's not clear that you'll have a home to stay in later.
• Now it's your turn. Because if you say, "I can't leave my job," how do you know that later you'll have a job at all? - see entry for "Gush Katif residents."
• Now it's your turn. Because it's better to go face-to-face with the residents of Petach Tikvah than with those in the black uniforms.
• Now it's your turn, and please do it with all your souls, so that it won't soon be our turn again.
Please, mom and dad, go out to Tel Aviv or somewhere else today. We'll take care of the rest.
It is sad that now the hope of Israel rests only in the hands of the youth. The adults of this generation were tried, and proved flawed. Much like the generation which witnessed the mighty works of God against the Egyptians that caused the first redemption, but died in the wilderness because of their unbelief. So also this generation of adult Jews have failed to obey God after the miraculous 1967 victory over the Islamic Arab barbarians, and are now bound to the same fate. Only two survived the wilderness wanderings to enter into the Promised Land. Joshua and Caleb led the youth born in the wilderness to the final victory, and not only conquered but occupied the Holy Land.
Biblical history is about to repeat once again. God is about to raise up another two who will lead the way of redemption for this third miraculous Exodus.
3 And I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days, clothed in sackcloth.
4 These are the two olive trees, and the two candlesticks standing before the God of the earth.
Those who will follow the future Joshua and Caleb are described as youth. Virgins born during a time of wilderness wanderings. Today, the Jews are lost. The great majority are secular, and are not actively seeking after the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. God opened the door not only for the Jews to occupy Judah and Samaria, but to build the Last Holy Jewish Temple on the Temple Mount. It was unbelief that caused the secular Jewish leadership to give back the keys to the Mount when offered by the defeated Islamic Arab barbarians. A down-hill giveback wilderness road has been followed ever since for almost 40 years now. The Jews of Israel depend on their own foolish wit to survive. They put their faith in foolish politicians who most recently put their faith in a foolish Road Map oriented Evangelical White House, and all ignore the teachings of the Bible for the future of the Holy Land. God has purposed to raise up a new foundation for a new dispensation coming to the Holy Land. It will be 144,000 Jews. The Bible is clear that they will follow the Lamb! They will be led by Two Witnesses for the first part of the journey. Because these Two Witnesses apparently never leave Jerusalem; I'm convinced their finished testimony will be the completion of the last Holy Jewish Temple as described in Ezekiel 40 -48 (the only Temple to be built with a throne). I'm convinced the skilled laborers who will not only build Ezekiel's Temple, but establish kosher Biblical worship acceptable to the God of the Bible will be these same 144,000!
Blood sacrifice as described in the Book of Leviticus will again be re-established on the Temple Mount.
Ezekiel 43:18 (Ezekiel's Temple)
18 And he said unto me, Son of man, thus saith the Lord GOD; These are the ordinances of the altar in the day when they shall make it, to offer burnt offerings thereon, and to sprinkle blood thereon.
7 If he offer a lamb for his offering, then shall he offer it before the LORD.
8 And he shall lay his hand upon the head of his offering, and kill it before the tabernacle of the congregation: and Aaron's sons shall sprinkle the blood thereof round about upon the altar.
Friend, it was the plan of God from the very beginning that blood must be shed for the remission of sin. Not just any blood, but innocent sacrificial blood. The Book of Leviticus specified how perfect the sacrifice was required to be: "Without spot or blemish." Perfect lambs are the norm in the world of the beast, but a perfect man is not the norm since the sin of Adam. God made the provision by sending His own Son. He is coming again to the Holy Land, Jerusalem, and the Temple Mount. Have you come to Him for the remission of your sin? Is the LORD Jesus Christ your redeemer? Why not ask Him into your heart right now? Just pray in the simplicity of a lost child seeking a heavenly home. Jesus will not refuse if you come with all your heart, all your soul, and all your might!

Afghan Man Faces Death for Allegedly Converting to Christianity
Sunday, March 19, 2006
KABUL, Afghanistan — An Afghan man who allegedly converted from Islam to Christianity is being prosecuted in a Kabul court and could be sentenced to death, a judge said Sunday.
The defendant, Abdul Rahman, was arrested last month after his family went to the police and accused him of becoming a Christian, Judge Ansarullah Mawlavezada told the Associated Press in an interview. Such a conversion would violate the country's Islamic laws.
Rahman, who is believed to be 41, was charged with rejecting Islam when his trial started last week, the judge said.
During the hearing, the defendant allegedly confessed that he converted from Islam to Christianity 16 years ago when he was 25 and working as a medical aid worker for Afghan refugees in neighboring Pakistan, Mawlavezada said.
Afghanistan's constitution is based on Shariah law, which states that any Muslim who rejects their religion should be sentenced to death.
"We are not against any particular religion in the world. But in Afghanistan, this sort of thing is against the law," the judge said. "It is an attack on Islam. ... The prosecutor is asking for the death penalty."
The prosecutor, Abdul Wasi, said the case was the first of its kind in Afghanistan.
He said that he had offered to drop the charges if Rahman changed his religion back to Islam, but the defendant refused.
Mawlavezada said he would rule on the case within two months.
Afghanistan is a deeply conservative society and 99 percent of its 28 million people are Muslim. The rest are mainly Hindus.
The Islamic barbarians reach much farther then the suicide bombing Arabs of Palestine. Shariah Law comes right out of the Koran, and is the law of the barbarians. The choice is either to join in with the barbarians, or off with the head. It is no wonder Afghanistan is 99% Moslem. They allow a tiny 1% to survive only so they can tongue in cheek brag on their religious tolerance, but Islam will never let that 1% begin to grow. These barbarians show their teeth in vicious death threats whenever they feel threatened. They are like the wild animals of the field ready to fight over a kill. Their reasoning is that of the conscienceless beast that only knows how to go into a wild frenzy. Should Abdul be set free the riots would be uncontrollable as Islam reacts to this threat to Shariah law. Look how they went into religious frenzy over a few cartoons of Mohamed. Imagine what will happen at this perceived attack on the Koran.
The God of the Bible is well aware of the heart condition of these Islamic barbarians, and their Shariah law. Judgment is coming, and it will be swift. In just a day or two Islam will be relegated to the historical dung heap of false religions. They will join with the pagans of the past who tried to usurp the authority of the one single creator God. The god of the Koran is the god of Abraham, Ishmael, and Esau rather then the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. When Mohamed read the Bible he rejected it realizing it was the Jews that God had chosen to be His children, and the Christians carried on the Jewish promises by accepting the Jewish Messiah as their Savior. Mohamed did not want to submit to a Jewish God. He wanted an Arabic god! This god would put to death any who would submit to any other then Allah. The false mantra was established in the Koran he wrote saying there is only one god Allah, and Mohamed is his prophet. Death is the law for any who would deny this mantra wherever this Arab god is worshipped. Arab righteousness demands the death of Abdula. Islamic Arab holiness demands the death of every Jew and Christian until their numbers drop below 1%. The Islamic Arabs want 99% of the world to become barbarians just like them. It is a Satanic plan that would then let the barbarians rip and tear this creation of God into a catastrophe through their wild animalistic frenzies. Allah is not a god of peace, but the god of the barbarians.
The battle field for this war against the Bible by the Koran is not in Afghanistan. Christian martyrs are not new to this world of sin. The God of the Bible has chosen the Holy Land to be where He takes His stand. He brought the Jews back to their Promised Land during this our generation with purpose. He will use the Jews as bait on a hook to lure the barbarians in for a quick death dealing blow of which Islam will never recover. Read about it in Ezekiel 39! Once Islam is removed as an influence in the Holy Land the Jews will be free to build the Last Holy Jewish Temple on the Temple Mount. It will be Ezekiel's Temple as described in Ezekiel 40 - 48. The only Holy Jewish Temple with a throne! The destruction of the Islamic barbarians takes place in Ezekiel 39, and the Last Holy Jewish Temple is then described in Ezekiel 40 - 48. It is perfect chronological order. It will be to this throne that the antichrist attempts to usurp the authority of the returning Christ at the midpoint of the Great Tribulation much as Islam is today trying to usurp the Holy Land. The time of Jacob's trouble is next in the chronology when the faithful Jews must flee Jerusalem for their lives. God protects them through this terrible era of 3-1/2 years until just before the return of Christ. The faithful protected Jews return to Jerusalem to cleanse the Temple bringing with them one final great revival among the secular Jews who stayed behind trying to compromise with the antichrist. In those last days as the king of the North invades driving off the antichrist half the city falls, but at the high point of Jacob's trouble now coming from the Russian hordes of the North as God gathers the nations against Jerusalem. The LORD Jesus Christ returns as the King of the Jews! The King of kings! The mighty LORD of hosts to meet out judgment upon the nations!
Friend are you ready? Are you trusting in this Christ for your salvation? Have you come to Him for the forgiveness of your sin? He is coming again to the Holy Land, Jerusalem, and the Temple Mount! Are you ready?

State Comptroller to probe response to bird flu outbreak
By Amiram Cohen, Haaretz Correspondent, and Haaretz Service
State Comptroller Micha Lindenstrauss decided Tuesday to examine the response of authorities to the recent outbreak of avian flu.
The move came amidst harsh criticism of authorities for the nature of their response to the epidemic's appearance in Israel.
Henhouse owners from Moshav Amioz, which has been found to be affected by bird flu, blocked Agriculture Ministry inspectors and veterinarians on Tuesday from entering the moshav to hand them culling orders.
The henhouse owners refused to receive the orders to slaughter their fowl until compensation for their losses is guaranteed by the government.
Residents finally opened the gates to the officials after the intervention of Ya'acov Cohen, secretary of the organization of poultry farmers, and Yossi Ishai, director general of the Agriculture Ministry, who promised the farmers the matter would be solved.
The farmers are protected by a law guaranteeing compensation to agricultural workers forced to cull their livestock. However, the law only covers direct damage, and would restrict payment in this case only to dead poultry. The law does not cover indirect expenses, including the rehabilitation of coops or any potential future financial losses.
Compensation for indirect losses would be guaranteed should the government declare the outbreak of bird flu a natural disaster, which it is expected to do in the coming days. However, compensation of this sort would only protect farmers who had insured their stocks through Kanat, the government insurance company. Many farmers are not insured through Kanat, and will remain unprotected by a government declaration of a natural disaster.
In a meeting on Tuesday between poultry farmers, moshav movement officials, Agriculture Minister Ze'ev Boim and Ishay, the farmers demanded the government reword the law to promise full compensation for losses. The farmers began on Tuesday to collect information on the extent of direct and indirect damaged caused by the outbreak.
Agriculture Minister Boim admits tainted poultry was mishandled
Agriculture Minister Ze'ev Boim admitted Tuesday that allowing fowl to rummage in the carcasses of dead poultry suspected of having contracted the disease was a mistake, which has since been remedied. The fear arose that the fowl would then transmit the disease to other, remote areas.
Meanwhile, the Palestinian Authority on Tuesday declared a state of emergency due to the avian flu outbreak.
"A mistake occurred, and from now on we are systematically culling and burying the birds," Boim said at a meeting of the Knesset's Economic Committee. He assured members of the committee that the flu is not spreading, but has been confined to six known locations.
The Agriculture Ministry's general manager, Yossi Ishai, said that the culling of poultry in known affected areas will be completed Tuesday. Culling in surrounding areas will be done with by the end of the week.
The shortage of manpower needed for this operation was solved through the retaining of 8 Defense Ministry contractors, each with a staff of 20. The government allocated NIS 5 million for the additional manpower.
The Agriculture Ministry stated Tuesday morning that the initial mishandling of the bird flu occurred because of a difficulty in submitting the culling orders, which must be handed personally to henhouse owners.
"Our farmers' database is lacking and since we could not destroy property without first contacting the farmer, it was impossible to begin the culling on time," said a ministry official, adding that this obstacle has since been overcome.
Dr. Avi Israeli, general manager of the health ministry, said that he would not be surprised if one or two people contracted the disease, although none have so far. He stated that even though this is not currently a human epidemic, there are enough vaccines for 25% of the population.
In a meeting on Tuesday between poultry farmers, moshav movement officials, Agriculture Minister Ze?ev Boim and Ishay, the farmers demanded the government reword the law to promise full compensation for losses.

590,000 Chickens and Turkeys Have Been
22:50 Mar 21, '06 / 21 Adar 5766
(IsraelNN.com) Some 590,000 birds have been destroyed since the outbreak of avian flu.
Agriculture Ministry inspectors continue monitoring the disease, adding and additional 150,000 birds are slated to be destroyed and another 380,000 will be quarantined in the coming days.
Birds are very prolific, and it will not take long for the number of the presently culled birds to be replaced. Controlling the plague is another matter. God has used plague down through the ages to chasten both His children when they were in error, and the heathen when they were ready for judgment. Today, science and government have replaced God, and the success or failure in fighting the plague is put on the shoulders of the scientists and government officials. Those in Israel who are warning that this plague is a curse from God for Israel's disobedience to occupy the Land are being mocked. It will be the government officials who will be called to account should the plague get out of control. These secular Jews are beyond the ability to repent. God can not speak to them! Even the threat of a devastating plague will not drive them to their knees.
I remember when the ash cloud from Mt. St. Helens began falling about Kalispel, Montana where I was ministering. Fear was rampant. The schools were closed, and most places of business warned their employees to stay inside for fear of breathing the ash which hung in the air like a thick fog. I drove into town to give assurance to the little congregation we had in that time of Church planting. What I saw has never left my thoughts. Though most businesses were closed the bars were all open, and their parking lots filled to overflowing. I remember thinking this mission field is reflective of our times. These people are filled with all kinds of fear, but the fear of God. I remember reading about the New York Churches being filled the Sunday after 9/11, but the movement to God was very short lived. Two weeks later it was only the regular attendees who came, and the short lived movement was over. The same holds true for the vast majority going forward at the great Christian crusades of our day. The Churches are not filling up as a result of these modern crusades, or from a generation of Christian television. It is seed falling on the road side. There is no fear of God in this generation. The charlatans have taken over main stream Christianity, and the flock is bamboozled.
The absents of the fear of the LORD is reason enough for dispensational change! God Himself is about to intercede. He is finished with the Church Age, and is moving His focus back to the Jews. The times of the gentiles is coming to a close. The stone cut without hands is about to dash into dust the great gentile vision of old King Nebuchadnezzar. The power of the gentile nations is in the process of being humbled. Judgment is coming to this generation! A Kingdom is coming to the Holy Land, Jerusalem, and the Temple Mount! The King of the Jews is coming again, but this time not as the babe of Bethlehem. He is coming as the mighty LORD of hosts to establish a Jewish Kingdom that will never end.
The religions of this world come and go. It is only Christ who transcends all religion who came from eternity, and continues into eternity. It is your relationship with this Christ that determines where you will spend eternity. He calls you to come to Him not the religious leaders of any generation. It is only His perfect sacrificial shed blood that can wash away sin. It must be applied by Him personally. He never gave that power to men. It means you must come to Him personally, and cast yourself upon His mercy. There is no other place to go! Friend, won't you come to Christ right now? Won't you ask Him with all your heart, soul, and might to save you?

Bush Pledges to Defend Israel
From an Iranian Attack
13:19 Mar 21, '06 / 21 Adar 5766
By Ezra HaLevi
United States President George W. Bush has declared that the U.S. will defend Israel militarily should Iran launch an attack on the Jewish State.
"I see a threat in Iran," Bush said Monday, answering a question after a speaking engagement in Cleveland, Ohio. "The threat from Iran is, of course, their stated objective to destroy our strong ally Israel. That's a threat, a serious threat. It's a threat to world peace; it's a threat, in essence, to a strong alliance. I made it clear, I'll make it clear again, that we will use military might to protect our ally, Israel."
Bush stressed, though, that diplomacy was America's preferred mode of operation.
During the first Gulf War, the U.S. also promised to defend Israel. The practical assistance Israel received, though, in the form of sometimes-effective Patriot defense missiles, was paid for by Israel's agreement not to defend itself against Saddam Hussein's unprovoked Scud missile attacks.
Members of the United Nations' Security Council, America, Russia, China, France and Germany, met Monday to formulate diplomatic measures against Iran. Officials involved report that Russia and China have not yet agreed to cooperate with action against Iran, but have given indications that they may in the future.
At the beginning of March, Iran's UN representative dealing with nuclear matters, Ali Asghar Soltanieh, threatened the U.S., saying, "The United States is also susceptible to harm and pain. So if that is the path that the U.S. wishes to choose, let the ball roll."
The U.S. suspects that Iran has funneled weapons into Iraq to support the local guerilla war against U.S. troops stationed there.
Here is a pledge that will only be broken. The Bible is even clearer then President George Bush that it will be broken! Everything happening in the Middle East today is going in the direction of an Islamic invasion of Israel as predicted in Ezekiel 38 & 39 with Iran (Persia) as a major player.
4 And I will turn thee back, and put hooks into thy jaws, and I will bring thee forth, and all thine army, horses and horsemen, all of them clothed with all sorts of armour, even a great company with bucklers and shields, all of them handling swords:
5 Persia, Ethiopia, and Libya with them; all of them with shield and helmet:
The phony peace as predicted in Ezekiel is already enacted through the Road Map. Next, comes the letting down of the Israeli guard. Pledges such as this from our Evangelical White House go far in bringing this prediction to the full. I don't believe this is a planned effort by George Bush to lay Israel bare before the barbarians, but I am convinced his Methodist Evangelical approach to the Bible allows him to be duped. It was the old Independent Fundamentalists who recognized dispensationalism, and a literal approach to the Bible. They knew it was the only way to understand what would be, and now is the future for the Holy Land. Their predictions about a literal return of the Jews to the Holy Land was a joke to the denominations such as the Methodists until 1948 when the modern State of Israel was established. The denominations immediately went into denial with their replacement theology where the Christian Church replaces all future blessings the Bible predicts for the Jews in the Holy Land, and the Methodist Evangelicals remain in that denial today. They still sing "Oh Jerusalem" thinking this is about a Methodist Evangelical Christian victory over the Holy Land.
Friend, you have heard it before, but let me say it again. There will be no Methodists, there will be no Evangelicals, or any other religions in in the coming Kingdom. There will only be Christians who either put their faith and trust in Christ as the predicted Messiah/Savior of the Old Testament, or in Him personally after the incarnation! The LORD Jesus Christ is the promise of the Old Testament given to Adam after the fall, and the fulfillment of every prophecy found in the Old Testament as the New Testament affirms. He is the only Savior! The Holiness of God as presented in the Bible put into practice will be the only thing that comes close to a religion that will go into eternity. A perfect Savior is saving individuals this very day who will be soon washed clean of all sin never to sin again. Only perfect Saints washed in the blood of the Lamb will inherit the coming Kingdom the God of the Bible is establishing in the Holy Land today.
5 And from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, and the first begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth. Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood ,
God kept His promise, and sent His Son saying "this day have I begotten thee." The greatest pledge ever given was the birth, death, and resurrection of the LORD Jesus Christ. Have you come to Him for salvation? The promise becomes void when men reject the Bible. The promise becomes meaningless to those who refuse to read what God has so clearly revealed. Friend, if you are not saved you can blame no one but yourself. Won't you come to the Christ of the Bible right now? Just ask Him! The promise from the very beginning is still valid for you, but time is running out. The door to this dispensation is closing. Judgment is coming to all who have ignored the Bible promise. Friend, chose Christ, and live. The rest of the promise is yet to come with the return of Christ according to the Bible. He is coming as the King of kings. He is coming as the seed of David King of Israel. This pledge is taking place right now in our generation. Look to the Holy Land, Jerusalem, and the Temple Mount to see God finishing His promise through Christ.

Hamas Leader:Our Spirit and Determination Will
15:42 Mar 20, '06 / 20 Adar 5766
By Scott Shiloh
The leader of the Hamas, Khaled Mash’al, said in a speech in Damascus that Arab determination and spirit will ultimately vanquish Zionism and bring about the liberation of all of Palestine.
Mash’al, whom Israel attempted to assassinate in 1997, said the dream of returning millions of Arab refugees to Israel is coming closer to reality as the final battle with Zionism approaches.
The real power behind the Hamas, Mash’al is a former resident of Gaza. Israel has barred Mash’al from reentering the country and assuming any role in the new Hamas government of the Palestinian Authority.
Speaking at a gathering marking 40 days since the death of the head of the Palestinian National Council, Khaled Alfahom, Mash’al emphasized the importance of the “Palestinian spirit” in winning the historic battle against Zionism.
The following are excerpts from his speech:
“Ben-Gurion [Israel’s first prime minister] hoped that subsequent generations of Palestinians will forget [their defeat in the 1948 War of Independence, commonly referred to by Arabs as] the catastrophe.”
“Today’s followers of Ben-Gurion know that they have to contend with a [Palestinian] generation that is stronger than its predecessors. They will see future generations of Palestinians and the Arab and Islamic nation waving the banner [of Islam].”
“The liberation [of Palestine] will come with the help of Allah, until it is attained by the last soldier, woman, and child, despite resistance by Israel and the United States… Jerusalem will become Arab and Muslim again, including all the places holy to Islam and Christianity.”
“Today, we are close to attaining Palestinian national rights… When a [Palestinian] child says that his grandfather or father was born in Nazareth, Haifa, or Jaffa, there’s powerful human force in that. Can any power on earth erase this memory? How can Nazareth, Haifa, Be'er Sheva, Jaffa, and Akko be erased from the Palestinian memory? Therefore, one who says that Palestinian rights will die out, or that the Palestinians will relinquish or sell [their rights and values] is living an illusion.”
“We and the Zionists have been brought together by destiny. If they want a fight, we’ll be there; if they want a war we’re ready; if they want a conflict we’ll be there however long it takes.
“We have more determination that Israel…We’ll defeat it, with the help of Allah, and we’ll liberate the land.”
The Palestinian Spirit so touted by the Islamic Arabs is a spirit of defiance against the creator God of the Bible. The God who created the Holy Land now called Palestine by the Arabs has His rights which outweigh all others. The God of the Bible has a plan going all the way back to the creation itself which centers around this one single holy place. Nations have come and gone, but God never wavered from His focus on this single spot on planet earth. The focus on the Holy Land can be fine tuned to Jerusalem, and even tuned finer to the Temple Mount. It was here that Abraham took his only begotten son Isaac to be a sacrifice. The Bible is clear it was Isaac not Ishmael who was brought to Mt. Moriah (the Temple Mount). The Koran redacts the Biblical account by replacing Isaac with Ishmael. The whole plan of the Koran is to replace the Jews with the Arabs. Replacing the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob with the Arab god Allah of Abraham, Ishmael, and Esau. Replacing the LORD Jesus Christ God's only begotten Son with the usurper Mohamed, and the blasphemous Koran that he wrote. The whole plan of God in the Bible was to bring the Jews to this one place on the planet. It was here where the LORD Jesus Christ was sacrificed as the King of the Jews. It is here that the Bible says He will return! Of all people on the planet today the Islamic Palestinian Arabs stand in the forefront to stop the God of the Bible from continuing with His stated plan! The Palestinian Spirit is the spirit of defiance, and is echoed throughout this generation by the other gentile nations. Many of these nations stand arm in arm with the Islamic Palestinian Arabs, and others more subtly. All oppose the return of the LORD Jesus Christ, and His coming Jewish Kingdom at this time to this generation. Even our own Evangelical White House encourages this spirit by adopting the Road Map that would give most of the Holy Land, most of Jerusalem, and all of the Temple Mount to the Islamic Arab Palestinians.
God is forcing this generation to choose! God has made the choice very clear by allowing Hamas to become the representatives of the Islamic Arab Palestinians. They are clearly the barbarians of this generation boldly confronting the civilized world with their barbaric action and rhetoric. The world must now choose between these barbarians, and God's chosen people. They must choose between the Koran and the Bible, between freedom of religion and the God of all creation, and between Mohamed's future for the Holy Land and the return of the LORD Jesus Christ. These are all major choices being forced on this generation because of this third miraculous Exodus that God has pressed on the whole world from this one tiny spot on the globe.
Hamas has rightly recognized that destiny has brought them onto the world scene at this moment in history. It is more then just destiny. It is the God of the Bible who planned, and brought them to the forefront as the most active resistors to His Word. They are the ones who will be used to reveal where the hearts of the men of this generation really lay. So far it is overwhelmingly for the barbarians either openly, or by subtle support.
Judgment is where this is all going. It is not going to be judgment on the Jews through an Arabic liberation of the land with the help of Allah. It is going to be Armageddon! This is the last planned Exodus in the Bible. The Jews are here in the Holy Land to stay. They are here to establish not the Road Map division of the Holy Land, but the perfect Jewish Kingdom that the Bible has long predicted. A Kingdom ruled over by a perfect King who made a perfect sacrifice for sin thus assuring Him the rule over the entire planet. Is this the Christ you have put your faith and trust in? Won't you come to Him right now, and settle the question of the eternal salvation of your soul? Only those washed clean of sin in the Lamb's blood will enter.
41 Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels:
46 And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal.

Poll: Kadima on 36 seats, Labor on 17, Likud gets 14
By Yossi Verter and Mazal Mualem, Haaretz Correspondents
With less than a week to election day, the number of floating voters has fallen dramatically, but the breakdown of voting intentions hasn't changed, according to an Haaretz poll supervised by Professor Camil Fuchs.
Kadima still leads the race with with a projected 36 Knesset seats - a 19-seat lead on the 17 Labor has after dropping three this week.
The Likud went down from 16 Knesset seats to 14.
A week ago voters amounting to 26 Knesset seats told pollsters they hadn't decided how to vote yet. This week only a number of voters equivalent to 18 Knesset seats are still fluctuating, or saying they are. Most of the undecided have been divided according to their answers, such as whom they voted for last time, or which two parties they were swaying between, among the various parties.
The expected voter turnout remains low: only 65 percent said they would definitely go to vote next Tuesday. The poll indicates that Acting Prime Minister Ehud Olmert will not have difficulty setting up any coalition he wishes next week without having to sacrifice too many government guidelines or senior portfolios. Olmert can form a left wing-ultra-Orthodox coalition (Kadima, Labor, Meretz, Shas and Torah Judaism equal 76 Knesset seats), a left-right coalition (Kadima, Labor, Meretz, Shas, Torah Judaism and Yisrael Beitenu equal 85 Knesset seats), a coalition with the Likud, Yisrael Beitenu and the ultra-Orthodox (76 Knesset seats) or a coalition with the medium and small parties, without the Likud and Labor (Kadima, Yisrael Beitenu, Shas, Torah Judaism (62 Knesset seats).
This is all assuming that the elections results corroborate the poll.
The Haaretz-Channel 10 News poll was held among a sample of 600 people Tuesday with an error margin of 4 percent.
According to the poll Meretz soared by two Knesset seats in one week, reaching six, Balad leaped from two to four, Yisrael Beitenu has lost one Knesset seat, dropping from 10 to nine, and the Pensioners Party is touching the minimum required number of votes, with two Knesset seats.
The poll examined the public's approach to the three leading parties and three candidates for prime minister. The results indicate the public's negative attitude toward the Likud and its chair, Benjamin Netanyahu. Some 50 percent regard the Likud in a negative manner, and 20 percent regard it positively. Some 44 percent regard Labor with a negative view, compared to 26 with a positive view. Kadima gets the highest grade from the public - 37 percent have a negative view of it and 26 have a positive view.
The public's view of the leaders is similar. Some 50 percent have a negative image of Netanyahu, compared to 22 who have a positive image of him. Amir Peretz's image is slightly better - 23 percent said they have a positive image of him compared to 43 percent who have a negative one. Ehud Olmert gets the best marks here, too: 39 percent have a negative image of him, while 26 percent have a positive one.
Asked which of the three is most suitable to be prime minister, those surveyed gave answers that indicated no significant changes. Olmert still leads over Netanyahu and Peretz with 26 percent, 20.5 percent and 16 percent respectively. However, 24 percent answered no one, which indicates a general lack of enthusiasm for the three.
Kadima, Likud strive to counter voter apathy
Kadima is increasingly worried about low voter turnout for the elections Tuesday, in the wake of opinion polls indicating voter apathy.
In discussions with his consultants, Acting Prime Minister Ehud Olmert has expressed concern that a low voter turnout will take a toll primarily on Kadima, which is counting largely on "spontaneous voting," as one Olmert adviser told Haaretz. The party is afraid that those supporting Kadima in the polls may wind up thinking that the election has already been won by Kadima, and will not feel obligated to actually vote.
"A low voter turnout will make it difficult for us to form a stable coalition," Olmert said.
The campaign will therefore focus on conveying the message that the battle isn't over yet and that a strong Kadima is needed to implement its platform.
A further concern among Olmert associates is that if the gap between Kadima and the Labor Party shrinks to 10-12 Knesset seats, Kadima will be forced to give Labor chair Amir Peretz the finance portfolio.
"A ruling party must not forgo the finance portfolio," a senior Kadima member said yesterday. "But if we weaken, and Peretz insists, we will be facing a tough problem."
The Likud is also worried about the voting public's seeming lack of interest in the elections. In response, the party has decided to focus all its efforts in the time remaining on bringing back wavering Likud voters, having realized there is no longer any point in spending energy on an appeal to right-wing voters that has yielded no significant results. The object is to win between two and three Knesset seats from the pool of undecided Likud supporters, or from those who were not planning to vote at all because of disappointment in the Likud.
Likud chair Benjamin Netanyahu ended his speech at a party rally for female activists yesterday by asking his audience to work to convince former Likud supporters to vote for the party.
"I am asking you to talk only to them," he said. "The [Knesset seats] are sitting at home. Go to them and ask they whether they want Kadima, because sitting at home is like voting for Kadima. Tell them that only the Likud can stop the dangerous things."
In keeping with this dictum, the last lap of Likud's campaign will employ messages such as this cry by Likud leaders: "Don't let the pollsters, the commentators make decisions for you. The elections have not been decided."
The pollsters are finished, and I assume they will be right. The Jews like the Arabs are now to speak with their vote where their hearts are. The liberal bleeding heart secular Jews are about to speak as the representatives of the majority of Jews now living in Israel. Olmert seems to be a shoe in for the highest position as Prime Minister. His Kadima Party hastily formed as the last act of Ariel Sharon now appears to have taken full control of Israeli politics. The Likud similar to our Republican Party, and Labor similar to the Democrats are out. This baby only months old Kadima party is the strongest political voice for continuation of the Road Map giveaway policy. This is the Jewish answer to the Hamas victory. Olmert has promised that if elected he will giveaway all of Judah and Samaria within four years. With Judah will go 3/4 of Jerusalem, and with the giveaway of most of Jerusalem will go the Temple Mount! Folks, I'm convinced God is not going to put up with this ultimate insult being planed by these secular Jews!
The coming Tuesday victory of Kadima will signal the kick off for the political assassination of the remaining 250,000 Independent Fundamental Jewish Settlers who settled Judah and Samaria after the 1967 Six Day War. The barbarians send out their suicide bombers to decimate the Jewish civilian population, but it is the Independent Fundamental Jewish Settlers who have obeyed the God of their fathers to occupy the Promised Land who will lose their rights to live in the Holy Land that God provided for them. Olmert hates these conservative Jews who keep bringing God into the Land debate. To Olmert Judah and Samaria along with most of Jerusalem, and especially the Temple Mount has become a curse to all secular Jews. Like a hot potato they can't pass it on fast enough. The settlers are quick to point out that disobedience is the reason why God has turned this 2000 year old blessing in waiting into a curse. The Jews were expected back in 1967 to prepare for the building of the Last Holy Jewish Temple, but they left liberal politics stop them from obeying God. They gave the keys to the Temple Mount back to the defeated Islamic Waif, and began the giveaway disaster now reaching it's climax with the coming election.
Kadima is about to go down as the party that through it's bleeding heart naivety brought about the greatest Islamic Jihad invasion ever to be recorded in the annals of history. I'm expecting Olmert to go far beyond just giving away God's Holy Land to the Islamic Arab barbarians sworn to destroy the Jews, but to be first to turn in all of Israel's nuclear deterrents probably for a Nobel Peace Prize as the first step to a nuclear free Utopian liberal dream for the Middle East.
The Great Tribulation ending with Armageddon is where Kadima is heading. This is how close I believe we are to the rapture, and the coming Kingdom. I expect the last leader of Kadima will be the Idol Shepard who is that Biblical secular Jew of the last days of the Great Tribulation. The spirit of Kadima fits the Idol Shepard to a tee.
Friend, the foolish shepherds control this generation of both Jew and gentile. The LORD Jesus Christ is the only answer. The barbarians are not going to stop Him from returning. His Kingdom of righteousness is coming very quickly. Have you put your faith and trust in this Christ of the Bible? What keeps you from coming to Him right now? You will not be refused as long as you come with all your heart, soul, and might.

Israel on the brink of
WORN down by a bloody five-year
Palestinian uprising, Israelis look set for a
seismic shift in policy after
Analysts say Israelis are set to discard their two polarising dreams of either settling Jews in a Greater Israel of biblical dimensions or trading much of that land for peace with the Palestinians.
The emerging consensus is to unload much of the West Bank, dismantle Jewish settlements and withdraw behind a barrier in exchange for some normality, though not a peace deal with the Palestinians.
"There is a change, a maturity, an understanding that we can't go on like this," sums up Haim Yavin, a veteran Israel TV news anchorman. He said the public mood was that "enough is enough, let's get on with the business of living".
This far-reaching change of heart, if it translates into votes the way pollsters predict, would remake Israeli politics by propelling the neophyte Kadima Party to power as a centre party between Israel's right-wing Likud and left-leaning Labor.
Kadima's leader, acting prime minister Ehud Olmert, is tapping into the new consensus with promises to withdraw by 2010 to a final border. He has turned the election into a referendum on the fate of land captured by Israel in 1967.
Prime Minister Ariel Sharon quit his Likud Party in November to form Kadima with disaffected Likud and Labor heavyweights.
The new party has shot to the top of the polls and stayed there even after Mr Sharon was incapacitated by a stroke on January 4.
As for giving up land, Mr Sharon already forged that template in September when he pulled Israel out of the Gaza Strip. So what his successor, Mr Olmert, is proposing has not come as a complete surprise.
Throughout the turmoil of the past four months, polls have held surprisingly steady, predicting Kadima will win just under one-third of the 120 seats in parliament, about double that of Labor and Likud.
That would enable Mr Olmert to form a coalition with either of those parties, or smaller political groups.
Yet, as the election draws near, pollsters are increasingly jittery. Kadima has lost ground in recent weeks, 10 per cent of voters are still undecided, and many of those who said they would vote for Kadima could change their minds because the party has no proven track record.
This is the day the Jews vote in Kadima, and in the process vote out God. A seismic shift has taken place in the hearts of the Jews of this generation. The 2000 year old dream of next year in Jerusalem which always meant the coming of the Biblical Jewish Kingdom that would bring peace to the world through the coming of the Jewish Messiah has been abandoned. The secular Jews now fully in charge of Israeli politics are openly set to discard the whole concept of the Biblical Messiah, and His coming Davidic Kingdom. They are ready to declare to the world today that the dream has ended. They think they have a better plan then God does in the Bible. All the land including most of Jerusalem and all the Temple Mount that God gave the Jews in the 1967 miraculous Six Day War is going to be given away not to the former Jordanian occupiers, but to the newest Islamic barbarian interlopers Hamas. The foolish secular politicians have told the Jews that by following this their plan Israel will gain peace. This despite all the ethnic cleansing statements coming from the Hamas barbarians who swear there will never be peace with the Jews until they are all killed, or removed from the Holy Land. There is a no more foolish dream of peace then that of the Road Map that would establish an Islamic barbarian State in the Holy Land supposedly living peacefully with the Jews! Who would put a baby in the den of an asp for safe keeping? The only way it could be done would be for a miraculous transformation to take place in the very nature of the asp. The Bible does say that such a miraculous event is not beyond the power of the God of the Bible. In fact, it is a characteristic of the coming Jewish Kingdom!
8 And the sucking child shall play on the hole of the asp , and the weaned child shall put his hand on the cockatrice' den.
9 They shall not hurt nor destroy in all my holy mountain: for the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the LORD, as the waters cover the sea.
However, there is no place in the Bible where such a transformation is predicted in the nature of Hamas, or any of the other enemies of the Jews such as the Nazis. For them it is only judgment! Unless God intervenes all is lost for both Jew and gentile. Thank God there is a promise to the Jews of this third miraculous Exodus. The God of the Bible. The God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob has made a promise to this generation of Jews living in the Holy Land.
26 A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh .
27 And I will put my spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes, and ye shall keep my judgments, and do them.
28 And ye shall dwell in the land that I gave to your fathers; and ye shall be my people, and I will be your God.
The sad part is that this greatest blessing promised to the Jews can be resisted, and made of no effect. Not every Jew will receive a circumcised heart as promised by God. However, a remnant of Jews are predicted to respond to this new everlasting covenant offered by the God of the Bible. The opening of their hearts that will bring this Kingdom will be primarily for them. This Jewish Kingdom will be ruled over by the only perfect King of the Jews ever presented in the Bible.
31 Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah:
32 Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day that I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt; which my covenant they brake, although I was an husband unto them, saith the LORD:
33 But this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel; After those days, saith the LORD, I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their God, and they shall be my people.
Friend, that same covenant is offered to you this very day through the LORD Jesus Christ. You do not have to wait like the remnant of Jews now living in the Holy Land. God is ready right now to write this everlasting covenant in your heart. It will cause a miraculous transformation! The old man, the old nature, can be subdued for now, you will be able to walk in the statutes and ordinances of God, and the promise is the old nature will be eradicated never to surface again at death or the rapture by the very promise of God. This covenant is offered to every lost sinner Jew or gentile seeking salvation. Any who will come to the sacrificial lamb who shed His blood on Calvary can find the forgiveness of their sin if they will only come with all their heart, soul, and might. It is complete and total surrender to this soon coming conquering King of the Jews. It is the promise of God through Christ that fixes this salvation for all eternity. It is a miraculous transformation that is promised, and it can be yours right now if you will only come to this Biblical Christ! Do not resist so great a salvation, or the recompense of the God of the Bible will rest upon your own head!.

Haniyeh wants Jerusalem as capital
Palestinian Prime Minister-designate Ismail Haniyeh will seek Palestinian statehood using 1967 borders, with Jerusalem as its capital.
Haniyeh made the remarks to the Palestinian Legislative Council in Ramallah Monday. He claimed Israel has escalated its aggression against the Palestinians, in a bid to punish them for electing Hamas in January, Ynetnews.com reported.
Meanwhile, Palestinian Chairman Mahmoud Abbas said in a letter to the group he may exercise his mandate if he believes the new Hamas Cabinet to be sworn in Wednesday hurts Palestinian interests, and hinted he can disband the government and fire the prime minister.
In Jerusalem, senior Israeli officials dismissed Haniyeh's statements that he wanted to end the bloodshed as a ploy to confuse the international community and the Israeli diplomatic establishment.
The Jerusalem Post said senior strategists had warned the government the Hamas tactic would be to pay lip service to the international community's expectations while maintaining its strategic goal of destroying Israel.
The challenge has been issued by the barbarians. They want Jerusalem! The Jews have given their answer through the ballot box. They voted for the party that has made the giveaway of Jerusalem as a major part of their political platform. Now it is up to the God of the Bible to keep His promise about Jerusalem. The city of Jerusalem was the focus of God at the first coming of Messiah the Prince. The very day Daniel predicted Messiah the Prince would come is recorded in the Bible. It was the glorious entrance of Jesus coming into Jerusalem as the son of David, and acknowledged as the prophesied coming King of the Jews. He went right to the Temple, and cleansed it of all the corruption that manmade religion, and the sin filled greed of depraved men had created on this single holy place. For a moment it was holy again. Righteousness had triumphed! However, that generation of Jews, and gentiles rejected Christ as quickly as they acknowledged who He was. They tried Him, and crucified Him because of His righteousness. They put above His head their indictment for all generations to read.
37 And set up over his head his accusation written, THIS IS JESUS THE KING OF THE JEWS .
That generation did not want a righteous King to rule over them. They refused to submit to His puritanical rule. The Messiah Prince was not for them! He is no more for this present generation of Jews and gentiles as He was for that former generation. He is coming again, and He will come again via the Mount of Olives as He did at the first.
2 For I will gather all nations against Jerusalem to battle; and the city shall be taken, and the houses rifled, and the women ravished; and half of the city shall go forth into captivity, and the residue of the people shall not be cut off from the city.
3 Then shall the LORD go forth, and fight against those nations, as when he fought in the day of battle.
4 And his feet shall stand in that day upon the mount of Olives, which is before Jerusalem on the east, and the mount of Olives shall cleave in the midst thereof toward the east and toward the west, and there shall be a very great valley; and half of the mountain shall remove toward the north, and half of it toward the south.
This time He is not coming as the Sacrificial Lamb that will take away the sins of the world. He has already accomplished that task. This time He is coming as the LORD of hosts to again cleanse, and establish His righteousness. This time the world is not going to be allowed to reject Him! Wicked and evil men will instead find judgment coming from this Christ of the Bible.
Friend, the secular Jewish majority may be prepared to giveaway Jerusalem to the barbarian gentiles, but the LORD of hosts is not! Read Ezekiel 39 about the prediction of the end of all Islamic influence over the Holy Land. A small remnant of Jews will then be free to build Ezekiel's Temple (Exekiel 40 - 48). That Holy Temple is predicted to be corrupted by the antichrist midway through the 70th week of Daniel's prophecy. The above passage from Zechariah tells of Jesus coming again from the Mount of Olives to cleanse this Third Temple just like He did at His first coming in the Second Temple. This time wicked and evil men will not put Him to death. Rather, they will be put to death themselves as the events of Armageddon reveal. The LORD of hosts will bring to an end the times of the gentiles as the nations are judged. The Great Tribulation will end, and the Jewish Kingdom Age will begin. Christ will rule the planet with His rod of iron righteousness, and the very nature of the wild beasts of the field will be transformed. The lion and the lamb will be at peace. All the world will be at peace. A Biblical peace that will start at Jerusalem!
Only those who totally submit to this Biblical King of the Jews will enter into this promised rest. Are you trusting in Christ? Have you received Him as your Savior, or will you perish with the nations in rebellion? The choice is yours to make. Chose Christ and live!

Solar Eclipse Envelopes Israel
in Brief Darkness
20:34 Mar 29, '06 / 29 Adar 5766
By Ezra HaLevi
An 82% solar eclipse enveloped Israel in sudden darkness Wednesday. The eclipse began at 11:37 AM, peaked at 12:58, and lasted until 2:13 PM.
As Israel digested the results of Tuesday's election, the sky went dark, the sun was slowly blocked out, temperatures dropped and animals howled, barked and crowed across the Land of Israel.
An eclipse occurs when the moon passes between Earth and the sun during daylight hours, causing its shadow to pass across the planet. Viewed from inside the moon's shadow on Earth, the moon is exactly the right size to completely block the sun. From Israel, Wednesday's eclipse blocked 82% of the sun.
The moon's shadow began in Brazil, crossed the Atlantic, Ghana, Nigeria and Chad. The shadow of the moon then passed by way of the Mediterranean across southeast Turkey and continued until Siberia.
Yishai Fleisher and Alex Traiman spoke with the head of Israel's space agency and examined the Divine message of the post-election eclipse for the Jewish people and the world. Click here to listen to the segment
It is now official. The majority of Jews who are liberal and secular have voted out forever the 2000 year old dream of the Jews down through the ages regarding their hopes in a coming Jewish Messiah. This Messiah is predicted in the Bible as coming to the Holy Land, Jerusalem, and the Temple Mount. The liberals ran on the political platform of the now silenced turncoat Ariel Sharon which was started with the giveaway of Jericho and the Gaza Strip. Kadima and Labor together are on record as supporting the Road Map next giveaway of Samaria and Judah. This after Hamas won the Palestinian election on a platform of annihilation of the Jewish State. These blinded liberal Jews are still intent on next giving away with Judah most of Jerusalem, and with Jerusalem the Temple Mount despite the reality that giving land to the barbarians only emboldens them to greater demands. It is because there is no other plan. There was never a plan for what if the Road Map fails. What if the Islamic Arab Palestinians never accept peace with the Jews. The Palestinians were never confronted with penalties that would make them think twice about their aggressive barbaric attacks on the civilian Jewish population. The world should have ended all aid to these barbarians after the free democratic election of Hamas. That is clearly not going to happen! This giveaway will only increase such attacks. The giveaway with no penalties is the only plan of the United States Evangelical White House, and the liberal secular Jewish majority now living in Israel. This kind of peace plan can only end in Armageddon, and it will!
The signs are there for those who care to look. Not as much this expected recent eclipse as the return of the Jews for this third miraculous Exodus back to the Promised Land. The gullible proud Charismatic Christians who believe they are special by receiving greater gifts then the other Christians of our day are big on looking for signs. They follow every charlatan claiming some phony supernatural power from a phony Jesus, but never do they base their faith on the real miracles of God in our generation happening among the Jews. It should be no surprise that most of the world can't see the real signs and miracles of our generation. It was like that when Christ came the first time.
16:1 The Pharisees also with the Sadducees came, and tempting desired him that he would shew them a sign from heaven.
2 He answered and said unto them, When it is evening, ye say, It will be fair weather: for the sky is red.
3 And in the morning, It will be foul weather to day: for the sky is red and lowring. O ye hypocrites, ye can discern the face of the sky; but can ye not discern the signs of the times ?
4 A wicked and adulterous generation seeketh after a sign; and there shall no sign be given unto it, but the sign of the prophet Jonas. And he left them, and departed.
"And He left them, and departed." So also will all those who follow false christs, proclaiming false signs and wonders find He has departed. Their faith is in false things that can't be seen by everyone openly like the return of the Jews, and are the kind of things this generation trusts as real signs and miracles. So also will Christ depart from a press core that reports everything, but the truth of what God is doing in this our generation! So also the deceived Evangelicals, and liberal secular Jews unless they repent. Their blindness without repentance only proves they were never looking for the real truth about signs and miracles which always leads to the real Christ of the Bible!
Friend, in whom is your faith? Which Jesus have you come for salvation? Take warning that the LORD Jesus Christ of the Bible does depart when resistance causes the hardness of heart to never be circumcised. Only those who come with all their heart, soul, and might find the real Christ of the Bible. All those phony conversions to the phony christs will find the real Christ has departed from them forever. Will you come to the real Christ who will never forsake you? He is waiting ready to transform your heart. Won't you come?

Hamas Festival Promotes
Terror and Violence Among Children
16:57 Mar 27, '06 / 27 Adar 5766
By Scott Shiloh
The Hamas terror organization, which will take control of the Palestinian Authority this week, has been promoting the use of children to perpetrate violence and terror.
The Hamas placed pictures of children in combat roles and combat dress on its web site for one week. The pictures were taken at a “Palestinian Children’s Festival” in Yemen.
The Yeminite press reported on the festival. Yemen News said, “A Hamas representative [in Yemen] Jamal Issa … stated that the Palestinian children fight alongside the adults in the resistance."
The pictures can also be seen on the website of Palestinian Media Watch, or on a website reporting on news and events in the Palestinian Authority.
Another picture shows a girl wearing a sash with the name Reem Riyashi on it. Reem Riyashi was a woman suicide terrorist who murdered four Israelis.
Despite Yemenite complicity with the Hamas in using children to promote terror and violence, US News and World Report reported last week that Yemen "has become one of America's most unexpected allies in counter terrorism." [March 13, 2006 page 38].
Temple Mount Remains Closed to Non-Muslims
06:06 Mar 30, '06 / 1 Nisan 5766
(IsraelNN.com) Jerusalem district police announced late Wednesday night that the Temple Mount would remain closed to Jews and other non-Muslims on Thursday.
Police officials explain the move is based on intelligence community warnings of tensions in the area that could leader to widespread Islamic riots.
Jerusalem Police Chief Ilan Franco has ordered a large deployment of forces around the Old City of Jerusalem on Thursday, Land Day, as well as in other “sensitive areas in the capital.
Land Day is observed on 30 March by the Arab community, marking the deaths of six rioters in the Israeli Arab municipality community of Kafr Kassam during 1976 rioting.
Islamic peace in the Holy Land does not exist. This is a religion for the barbarians who can lie out of both sides of their mouth while praising Allah all the while for the stupidity of their politically correct victims. The Koran encourages this kind of character behavior among the faithful. The thought of child sacrifice invokes joy in the hearts of those who understand the Koran the best. They know Allah like Moloch of old is a god who places the sacrifice of children on the highest level. This is the highest form of Islamic righteousness. It results in the highest reward in the Islamic paradise. It is the right thing for Islamic mothers to dedicate their children as a death sacrifice to this god Allah.
Herein lies the conflict between the Koran and the Bible. Herein lies the difference between Koran righteousness and Biblical righteousness. Never could anyone so twist the Bible into condoning the abomination of child sacrifice.
35 And they built the high places of Baal, which are in the valley of the son of Hinnom, to cause their sons and their daughters to pass through the fire unto Molech ; which I commanded them not, neither came it into my mind, that they should do this abomination, to cause Judah to sin.
Even Abraham who was specifically commanded by the God of the Bible to sacrifice Isaac his only begotten son on Mount Moriah (the Temple Mount) as a symbol of the promised Messiah of Isaiah 53 had his hand stayed by God who provided a ram as a replacement. The reason the God of the Bible so adamantly opposes child sacrifice, and the reason Islam rejoices in it is because it demeans the sacrifice of God's only begotten Son who died on Calvary as the only acceptable sacrifice for sin.
14 And 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.
16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.
17 By faith Abraham, when he was tried, offered up Isaac: and he that had received the promises offered up his only begotten son,
1 John 4:9
9 In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him.
Friend, it is through God's only begotten Son that salvation has come to planet earth. Islam teaches that paradise can be gained by sacrificing children for Allah. The Bible teaches that the only way to heaven is through the death, burial, and resurrection of God's only begotten Son the LORD Jesus Christ. Islam is intent upon proclaiming their false righteousness to the world from the Holy Land, Jerusalem, and the Temple Mount. They intend to send out their children again looking for non-Moslem targets to suicide bomb as the Islamic way to paradise. Their accomplished, and coming acts of abomination have already been judged in the Bible. All eternity in the torments of hell is the sentence. Friend, do not join them in their Christ rejecting fate. Come to Christ and live. Desire His righteousness. Ask Him for the salvation you so earnestly need. Won't you come to the Christ of the Bible?
