Campaign to Upgrade the Old City's 'Small Wall'

by Hillel Fendel

(IsraelNN.com) Unknown to most visitors to the Western Wall, the remnant of the Holy Temple compound extends to the north far beyond what they can see - and a campaign is underway to publicize this.

The Western Wall is a supporting wall of the Temple Mount complex, on which the two Holy Temples were built approximately 2,850 and 2,350 years ago, respectively. Though it is technically outside the Temple area, it has special sanctity; the rabbinic Sages taught that the Divine Presence would never leave the Western Wall.

Of the nearly 500 meters of length of the Western Wall, roughly 200 meters of the southern end [to the right of the worshipers] are easily accessible today - but the remainder is just as sacred. Another 100 meters or so are included in a tour of the Western Wall Tunnels. Above these tunnels, near the Iron Gate entrance to the Temple Mount and on Temple Mount floor level, is an open area facing a short segment of the Wall. This is the area known as the Kotel HaKatan.

One Would Not Know It
Though it is off the beaten track, the Kotel HaKatan is actually slightly more holy than the familiar Western Wall plaza, because of its closer proximity to the Holy of Holies of the ancient Temples.  However, one would not know this upon visiting it - for it is hard to get to, has no trappings of a holy site, and is not even protected 24 hours a day.

An ad-hoc committee named Kotleinu, "Our Wall," is working to promote and improve conditions at the Kotel HaKatan. The committee comprises mostly residents of the Old City of Jerusalem who are concerned that the area is not treated with the respect it deserves.

The group says that of late, for the first time ever, the Tourism Ministry department in charge of Holy Sites has committed to upkeep the Kotel HaKatan. Deputy Director-General Rafi Ben-Hur acknowledged that the Ministry is responsible for the area, but said that special budgeting must be obtained before this responsibility can be actualized.

Despite this, some recent improvements at the site include a police presence during daylight hours, a security camera monitoring the area and the access road, municipality-provided street-sweeping - and even a sign that says "Do not litter."

"A no-littering sign is an improvement," an active Kotleinu member told Arutz-7, "but what we really want is a sign saying that this is a holy site and that it should be treated appropriately."

Prayer Services and Arab Bicycles
Yeshivat HaKotel maintains a daily afternoon prayer service there, and other groups and yeshivot also pray there on Shabbatot. This, despite the fact that there are no chairs or prayer stands at the site; even prayer-books cannot be stored there, as there is no security at night. Sometimes, Arab children pass through there with their bicycles, or Arab women with their shopping bags - reminiscent of the scene of the "regular" Western Wall up until several decades ago.

"If the Ministry sees that tourists from both in and out of Israel frequent the place and are interested in it," Kotleinu feels, "this will provide an incentive to upgrade it. This is why we have started a letter-writing campaign to this effect."

Kotleinu asks concerned citizens and tourists to join the campaign for improving Kotel HaKatan conditions by visiting the Small Wall and by writing to or faxing (02-6496157) Tourism Minister Yitzchak Aharonovitch. A recommended sample letter can be seen here.

 

I have been teaching for years that the Western Wall must go! I have no problem, and actually support the Jewish effort to expand the Western Wall Plaza to include all of the Wall. However, I know that the day is coming when Biblical Judaism will be re-established in Israel, and that the Jews themselves will tear down that shrine to blindness. It is that wall that separates the Jews from their Temple Mount. It is to that Wall that they pray. A line can be seen where their foreheads touch the Wall as they literally beat their heads against the Wall trying to reach God. It is a tragedy that modern Judaism has so blinded the Jews of this generation that the closest they can get to God is a wall! A Wall that stands between them, and the dwelling place of their God. It has only been since 1967 that the Wall was taken from the Jordanians in battle. This June will mark the 40th birthday since the Wall had been freed. Already the barbarian Arabs are claiming ownership. They say Mohamed tied his magical flying horse to this wall when he made his journey to Paradise. This is all the barbarians need to claim it for themselves. I would suspect Mohamed took part in all that perverted sex going on while there in Paradise? In any case the Arabs want the Jews to give them the Wailing Wall as an Islamic Holy Site. Who knows but Olmert just might do such a thing for peace that never was, certainly is not today, and never will be. I know Olmert will give the Arab barbarians full sovereignty over the Temple Mount. It will probably be packaged with the Jerusalem give away. The one thing Olmert will never do is call upon the Jewish people to build God's House on the Temple Mount!

The day is soon coming when God is going to seal 144,000 Jews. They will know Jesus is the Jewish Messiah. They will be redeemed after the Church Age ends. I believe the Two Witnesses of Revelation 11 who never leave the city of Jerusalem will call upon the Jews to build the House of God. The excuse that the time is not come will not wash with these firstfruits of the next dispensation. They will warn the Jews to consider your ways. It has been too long since 1967. They will tell the Jews the time has come, and it is now!

Haggai 1:2-5

2 Thus speaketh the Lord of hosts, saying, This people say, The time is not come, the time that the Lord's house should be built.

3 Then came the word of the Lord by Haggai the prophet, saying,

4 Is it time for you, O ye, to dwell in your cieled houses, and this house lie waste?

5 Now therefore thus saith the Lord of hosts; Consider your ways.

KJV

I believe the 144,000 will respond to the Two Witnesses, and together they will build Ezekiel's Temple (Ezekiel 40 - 48). I know the project will be done in a short 3-1/2 years. An absolutely perfect Temple will be built, and absolutely perfect Old Testament worship including acceptable sacrifice will be offered to God. The uniqueness of this last Holy Jewish Temple will be that it will have a throne.

Ezekiel 43:7

7 And he said unto me, Son of man, the place of my throne, and the place of the soles of my feet, where I will dwell in the midst of the children of Israel for ever, and my holy name, shall the house of Israel no more defile, neither they, nor their kings, by their whoredom, nor by the carcases of their kings in their high places.

KJV

The other unique aspect of this Temple will be that the blood sacrifice offered to God will only be acceptable as a remembrance of Calvary. Ezekiel's Temple will have an altar, and sacrifice will be given! The Jews who will be the foundation for this next dispensation will all have been washed in the blood of the Lamb.

Ezekiel 43:18

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.

KJV

Revelation 7:13-14

13 And one of the elders answered, saying unto me, What are these which are arrayed in white robes? and whence came they?

14 And I said unto him, Sir, thou knowest. And he said to me, These are they which came out of great tribulation, and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.

KJV

Revelation 12:10-11

10 And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night.

11 And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.

KJV

This last Temple will have to be the holiest of all. Purity will find new heights of expression. The holy standards will be the highest men have ever known. The word puritanical will take on the fullness of meaning when applied to Ezekiel's Temple. I believe the Temple Mount will be bulldozed clean of all the filth of the millenniums. I do not think it is going too far to imagine the ranks of the 144,000 Jews scrubbing down the very bedrock before construction begins. The wailing Wall that stood since 1967 as an example of Jewish blindness blocking their entrance to the Temple will go! A new foundation will be laid fit for the centerpiece of the Millennial Kingdom of Christ. It will be the place where the soles of His feet will rest as He sits on His throne. Oh how pure it must be. Not spot or blemish will be allowed to come in contact with our Holy Christ.

Friend, He shed His blood at Calvary so you can be saved. That sacrifice will always be presented before men throughout eternity. Christ did His part of salvation, and now offers His miraculous sin cleansing blood to you freely. Will you accept His gift of grace? Will you come to Him in humble repentance, and ask Him to save you? The choice is yours alone. Won't you come?

Ezekiel 38:21-23

21 And I will call for a sword against him throughout all my mountains, saith the Lord God: every man's sword shall be against his brother.

22 And I will plead against him with pestilence and with blood; and I will rain upon him, and upon his bands, and upon the many people that are with him, an overflowing rain, and great hailstones, fire, and brimstone.

23 Thus will I magnify myself, and sanctify myself; and I will be known in the eyes of many nations, and they shall know that I am the Lord.

Report: Al Qaeda in Iraq Chief Abu Ayyub al-Masri Killed in Battle With Another Insurgent Group

Tuesday, May 01, 2007 - Associated press

BAGHDAD —  Iraqi officials have received reports that the leader of Al Qaeda in Iraq was killed by Sunni tribesmen but the information has not been confirmed, the chief government spokesman said Tuesday.

The statement by spokesman Ali al-Dabbagh followed a welter of reports from other Iraqi officials that Abu Ayyub al-Masri had been killed. Iraqi officials have rushed out similar reports in the past, only to acknowledge later they were inaccurate.

U.S. officials said they could not confirm the reported death.

Visit FOXNews.com's Iraq Center for more in-depth coverage.

Al-Dabbagh told Al-Arabiya that word of al-Masri's purported death was based on "intelligence information," adding tnat "DNA tests should be done and we have to bring someone to identify the body."

But he refused to say unequivocally whether Iraqi security forces have the body, citing security restrictions. Accounts were vague about when and where al-Masri supposedly died.

"We will make an official announcement when we confirm that this person is Abu Ayyub al-Masri. The Iraqi government will work to identify him," he said.

U.S. spokesman Lt. Col. Christopher Garver said the U.S. command was looking into the reports.

"Obviously I hope it's true," Garver said, pointing out that previous Iraqi claims had proven false. "We want to be very careful before we confirm or deny anything like that."

Tribesmen in the western Anbar province have been fighting Al Qaeda for weeks and claim to have killed dozens of them.

Al-Masri, an Egyptian militant also known as Abu Hamza al-Muhajer, took over leadership of the terror network and was endorsed by Usama bin Laden after Abu Musab al-Zarqawi was killed last June in a U.S. airstrike in Diyala province.

 

 

 

The Russian military trained Egyptian who took the semi-retired Bin Laden's place is now most probably dead at the hands of his fellow Islamic barbarians. Someone worse then him will certainly take his place as the working head of Al Qaeda. The Russian connection should be noted. Bin Laden rose to power fighting the Russians in Afghanistan. Today, it is the Russians who are the mentors of the Al Qaeda leadership. Russia is also the author of the Road Map. They sold it to the Europeans who share the same anti-Semitic feelings, and then almost fell over with joy when the Evangelical Bush White House adopted it as their plan for peace in the Holy Land. I still remember that Colin Powell was ready to make the announcement of adoption, but the news events of the day (9/11) put it on the back burner. Later, Bush was under great criticism for going it alone in Iraq. The official announcement of US support of the Russian Road Map came right after the great one-sided victory over Saddam's military. It was a good political move that did smooth ruffled feathers, but God was not pleased at all that the Evangelicals would silently back a plan giving away most of the Holy Land to the barbarians. The great Iraq victory quickly deteriorated into the IED war of attrition for which the feather bedded liberal Americans are not willing to fight. They are falling over each other proposing tribute to the barbarians as their peace plan.

Everything happening in the world today is heading toward an Islamic invasion of Israel. The Russian connection is clearly growing. All who have any understanding of the Bible are familiar with the Gog! John Whitcomb wrote a very popular Christian book years ago titled "The Coming War with Russia" where he detailed the prophecy concerning the Gog, and the coming invasion of Israel. History has progressed since then, and a better title today would be "The Coming Islamic Invasion of Israel." The Gog will be there, but represented by their "Chief Prince" not the masses of Russians whom God is holding back as the King of the North who will be a major player at Armageddon. Ezekiel 38 & 39 describes such a horrific defeat of the invaders apart from Armageddon that they could never rise to power again. Ezekiel 38 & 39 is not the coming war with Russia, but the coming Islamic invasion of Israel.

Ezekiel 38:2-3

2 Son of man, set thy face against Gog, the land of Magog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal, and prophesy against him,

3 And say, Thus saith the Lord God; Behold I am against thee, O Gog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal:

KJV

Ezekiel 39:1-2

39 Therefore, thou son of man, prophesy against Gog, and say, Thus saith the Lord God; Behold, I am against thee, O Gog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal:

2 And I will turn thee back, and leave but the sixth part of thee, and will cause thee to come up from the north parts, and will bring thee upon the mountains of Israel:

KJV

The chief prince of Meshech and Tubal is the Islamic brotherhood of the old USSR, and the Islamic hordes still part of the Russian State. The trained Islamic barbarians put in leadership rolls among the Islamic terrorists. All can be counted among the chief prince of the Gog who will die upon the mountains of Israel. The chirf prince is only part of the Northern prong of a 3 pronged Islamic invasion. Turkey joins the chief prince as they flow over the Cacusus Mountains on their way to Israel. Iran as ancient Persia, and possibly an Iranian controlled Iraq if the Democrats get their way will be the Eastern prong of the Islamic attack. Finally. Islamic North Africa as Put (Libya) and Cush (Ethiopia) will invade from the South.

Ezekiel 38:4-8

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:

6 Gomer, and all his bands; the house of Togarmah of the north quarters, and all his bands: and many people with thee.

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.

KJV

 

Ezekiel 39 is one of the most horrific descriptions of slaughter ever put from pen to paper. I believe this will be the end of Islamic influence over the Holy Land. I believe Ezekiel 39 opens the door for a new Biblical Judaism to lay a foundation in Israel in preparation for the next Kingdom Age dispensation. The last Holy Jewish Temple will be built on the Temple Mount after Ezekiel 39 takes place. I believe Ezekiel 38 & 39 take place after the rapture. At the beginning of the Great Tribulation. At the moment of dispensational change. The sealed Jews of Revelation 7 and 14 join the Two Jewish Witnesses of Revelation 11 in Jerusalem, and in 3-1/2 years build and establish acceptable worship in Ezekiel's Temple (Ezekiel 40-48).

Friend, are you ready? Have you come to the Biblical Christ who died in your place at Calvary. Ezekiel's Temple will be dedicated to this Christ. Blood sacrifice will be offered daily throughout the Millennial Kingdom in remembrance of Calvary when Christ offered Himself as the only effective atonement for sin. The free gift of salvation from sin is offered to you, but you must come to Christ to receive it. Friend, won't you come to Christ, and live?

Ezekiel 39

The End of Islam


39:1 Therefore, thou son of man, prophesy against Gog, and say, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I am against thee, O Gog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal:
2 And I will turn thee back, and leave but the sixth part of thee, and will cause thee to come up from the north parts, and will bring thee upon the mountains of Israel:
3 And I will smite thy bow out of thy left hand, and will cause thine arrows to fall out of thy right hand.

4 Thou shalt fall upon the mountains of Israel, thou, and all thy bands, and the people that is with thee: I will give thee unto the ravenous birds of every sort, and to the beasts of the field to be devoured.

5 Thou shalt fall upon the open field: for I have spoken it, saith the Lord GOD.
6 And I will send a fire on Magog, and among them that dwell carelessly in the isles: and they shall know that I am the LORD.


7 So will I make my holy name known in the midst of my people Israel; and I will not let them pollute my holy name any more: and the heathen shall know that I am the LORD, the Holy One in Israel.
8 Behold, it is come, and it is done, saith the Lord GOD; this is the day whereof I have spoken.


9 And they that dwell in the cities of Israel shall go forth, and shall set on fire and burn the weapons, both the shields and the bucklers, the bows and the arrows, and the handstaves, and the spears, and they shall burn them with fire seven years:
10 So that they shall take no wood out of the field, neither cut down any out of the forests; for they shall burn the weapons with fire: and they shall spoil those that spoiled them, and rob those that robbed them, saith the Lord GOD.

 

11 And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will give unto Gog a place there of graves in Israel, the valley of the passengers on the east of the sea: and it shall stop the noses of the passengers: and there shall they bury Gog and all his multitude: and they shall call it The valley of Hamon-gog.


12 And seven months shall the house of Israel be burying of them, that they may cleanse the land.


13 Yea, all the people of the land shall bury them; and it shall be to them a renown the day that I shall be glorified, saith the Lord GOD.

14 And they shall sever out men of continual employment, passing through the land to bury with the passengers those that remain upon the face of the earth, to cleanse it: after the end of seven months shall they search.


15 And the passengers that pass through the land, when any seeth a man's bone, then shall he set up a sign by it, till the buriers have buried it in the valley of Hamon-gog.
16 And also the name of the city shall be Hamonah. Thus shall they cleanse the land.


17 And, thou son of man, thus saith the Lord GOD; Speak unto every feathered fowl, and to every beast of the field, Assemble yourselves, and come; gather yourselves on every side to my sacrifice that I do sacrifice for you, even a great sacrifice upon the mountains of Israel, that ye may eat flesh, and drink blood.

18 Ye shall eat the flesh of the mighty, and drink the blood of the princes of the earth, of rams, of lambs, and of goats, of bullocks, all of them fatlings of Bashan.
19 And ye shall eat fat till ye be full, and drink blood till ye be drunken, of my sacrifice which I have sacrificed for you.

20 Thus ye shall be filled at my table with horses and chariots, with mighty men, and with all men of war, saith the Lord GOD.


21 And I will set my glory among the heathen, and all the heathen shall see my judgment that I have executed, and my hand that I have laid upon them.

22 So the house of Israel shall know that I am the LORD their God from that day and forward.

23 And the heathen shall know that the house of Israel went into captivity for their iniquity: because they trespassed against me, therefore hid I my face from them, and gave them into the hand of their enemies: so fell they all by the sword.
24 According to their uncleanness and according to their transgressions have I done unto them, and hid my face from them.

25 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Now will I bring again the captivity of Jacob, and have mercy upon the whole house of Israel, and will be jealous for my holy name;

26 After that they have borne their shame, and all their trespasses whereby they have trespassed against me, when they dwelt safely in their land, and none made them afraid.

27 When I have brought them again from the people, and gathered them out of their enemies' lands, and am sanctified in them in the sight of many nations;
28 Then shall they know that I am the LORD their God, which cause them to be led into captivity among the heathen: but I have gathered them unto their own land, and have left none of them any more there.
29 Neither will I hide my face any more from them: for I have poured out my spirit upon the house of Israel, saith the Lord GOD.

Beleaguered Olmert Seeks Refuge, Plans to Uproot Yesha Outposts

by Hillel Fendel

(IsraelNN.com) Prime Minister Ehud Olmert has asked Defense Minister Amir Peretz - both of whom are under heavy pressure to resign - to prepare an organized plan to destroy small Jewish communities in Judea and Samaria.

News of Olmert's request was included in a State response submitted to the Supreme Court Tuesday regarding an appeal from last year. The suit in question, submitted by Peace Now and a group of Arabs, charges that the town of Migron is illegal and must be destroyed.

Olmert has asked that the plan to destroy Jewish homes be ready within two months. He has thus apparently changed his policy regarding the destruction of unauthorized outposts. In the past, he has frozen plans to do so, explaining that the timing was not right in light of the diplomatic situation with the Palestinian Authority.

Migron: Strategically Situated
Situated atop a strategic hill, 6 miles north of Jerusalem, between Beit El, Psagot, and Michmash, Migron is included in Olmert's demolition request. Peace Now, the radical left-wing organization dedicated to destroying the Jewish presence in Judea and Samaria [Yesha], claims that most of land on which Migron was built belongs to Arabs.

Migron residents, however, say Peace Now worked hard to find the Arabs in question and convinced them to file the suit against the Jewish town.

Peace Now and Israel's Enemies
Binyamin Regional Council head Pinchas Wallerstein said that Peace Now worked together with Defense Minister Amir Peretz for their common political goals. Peretz says that the government no longer needs time to negotiate a compromise with the Migron residents. Wallerstein, who built Migron, said, "Peretz apparently feels that the main thing is his bid to win his party's primaries [later this month] - even if it means that several dozen more families will be thrown out of their homes.... He was advised to call off talks with us, because it would not look good for his primaries campaign if he comes to an agreement with us. It's very sad to see a man who puts his own personal interests ahead of those of the nation."

Wallerstein explained Migron's critical strategic importance in that it overlooks the highway leading to many Jewish towns in the Shomron: "A few years ago, former Defense Minister Binyamin Ben-Eliezer [of Labor] agreed that this place must remain [settled by Jews]. Very sadly, Peace Now reminds me of other dark times in Jewish history when Jews would join up with their enemies against their own people..."

Even ex-Prime Minister Ariel Sharon declared that Migron was strategically vital, Wallerstein said: "He told us, the members of the Yesha Council, that he had informed the Americans that he insists that this place and three other outposts must remain, despite other previous commitments that might have been."

"In this spirit," Wallerstein continued, "the Defense Minister agreed that Migron would not be removed, and all Central Commanders since then have also demanded that this location remain as is. Furthermore, many different government offices have helped Migron with infrastructures, and it was even decided in the Defense Ministry to begin with planning the permanent community."

Wallerstein said that Peace Now has other court suits coming up against the town of Haresha, 11 miles northwest of Jerusalem, and against a neighborhood in Eli, 18 miles north of the capital.

Modern-Day Zionism
One resident of Migron, Aviva W., told Arutz-7, "When we arrived here, it was clear that the land had no claimants and no one working on it... We are a continuation of the Zionist enterprise and the Zionist dream - just like all the pioneers who came to the Land of Israel over the centuries, starting with the students of the Gaon of Vilna [early 19th century], and later the First Aliyah [1882-1903], and the Second Aliyah [1904 - 1914], etc. - there is no difference. If anything, we are more in the heart of the Land of Israel than Tel Aviv is. The only difference is political - an arbitrary difference made based on what is convenient for different politicians at different times - but we are doing the same thing that Land of Israel pioneers have done for generations."

Founded in March 2002, Migron (mentioned in Samuel I 14:2 and Isaiah 10:28) grew quickly, reaching 42 families after only a year and a half - at which point the government abruptly clamped down on further growth. Over 200 people, including well over 100 children, now live there. A synagogue and two homes are in permanent structures, while most of the residents live in mobile homes. Six government ministries, the Civil Administration, the Electric Company, Mekorot Water Company and other official bodies have all taken part in establishing infrastructures for the community.

Olmert now proposes a series of criteria to decide which outposts will be destroyed and when. The criteria include:

 

 

Exodus in reverse! This is what the Olmert government is all about. Throwing this miraculous Third Exodus into reverse. Sharon, the turn coat, turned the Gaza and the city of Jericho into Arab occupied land, and now Olmert wants to out-do Sharon by making all of Judea and Samaria Arab occupied land. The Jews of the First and Second Exoduses must be turning over in their graves. The incompetence of both Prime Minister Olmert and his Defense Minister Peretz during the latest Lebanon War has stirred a call for their removal. Like other slick liberal politicians they are attempting to shift the focus from themselves. There is no other better target in liberal Israeli politics in which to focus hate then the Independent Fundamental Jewish Settlers. The vilification of these poor folk has been going on for years. The great influx of mostly Russian Jews when the USSR fell has driven up housing costs. The liberal media fixed on the new comers classifying them as the hillbillies who can't afford sophisticated city living, and are confined to the outer hills of the boarder country. The truth is that most of these Alliah refugees are hard working farmers who have made the desert bloom. They came to Israel only knowing they were being persecuted in their homelands because they were Jewish. They had long ago lost identification with the blasphemous traditional practices of modern Judaism because practicing Judaism was outlawed where they lived. The traditional liberal Jews saw them as ignorant simpletons who drove up the cost of living. The price for feather beds in Tel Aviv were going up.

A good number of these Jews who are now living as settlers do not have the attachment to Jewish tradition as the more entrenched Jewish majority. They understand that they are Jewish through ancestry, and they also understand that they have come to live in the Promised Land. In every Exodus the Land had to be occupied, and they see no difference in today's miraculous Third Exodus. It is against these Jews that the liberal Olmert, and Peretz are now focusing the hate of the nation. The liberals want to paint these mostly conservative settlers with terminology such as religious fanatics, or right wing agitators who are the thorn that prevents peace in the Holy Land. The thorn has already stuck many a feather bed, and the animosity is ripe for political picking. If Olmert and Peretz are successful in shifting the public focus from the Lebanon War toward the war with the settlers, they just might be able to stay in power. It will be as slick a move as that fellow who said "I did not have sexual relations with that woman" pulled on the American public shifting the focus to Ken Star in order to stay in power.

Folks, God is in the process of changing dispensations. The Church Age is ending, and the Kingdom Age is next. It is not the powerful who will enter into the Kingdom. It is the meek!

Friend, are you fit for the Biblical future God has for the Holy Land? The LORD Jesus Christ has been declared worthy to take, and open the title deed which He purchased with His own blood at Calvary. You must be born again if you are to spend all eternity future with Christ. Won't you come to Him today? Let Him change your heart. Let Him wash away your sin!

 

Matthew 5:3-12

3 Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

4 Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted.

5 Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth.

6 Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled.

7 Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy.

8 Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God.

9 Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.

10 Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness' sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

11 Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake.

12 Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you.

Special Knesset Session: Likud, Labor, UTJ Say Olmert Must Go

by Hillel Fendel

IsraelNN.com) In a special mid-recess Knesset session on Thursday afternoon, leaders of parties in and out of the opposition have called on Olmert and his government to quit.

Five minutes were granted to each speaker - a representative of each party - except for opposition leader Binyamin Netanyahu, who received ten.  A tense moment occurred when Speaker Majali Wahabe of Kadima refused to allow Zahava Gal'on of Meretz to say an extra sentence when her time was up, despite her repeated insistence on doing so; only the intervention of Prime Minister Ehud Olmert himself - despite Gal'on's very sharp words of criticism against the Prime Minister - convinced Wahabe to grant her the extra seconds.

Ex-Prime Minister Netanyahu opened the session by calling for new elections:
"This week, the Winograd Commission removed the screen from the eyes of the citizens, and reminded us of a truth that we all knew very clearly for the first decades of our State, but that has become blurred of late - namely, that our existence and peace with our enemies are dependent mainly on our strength. Only if we are strong, will we prevent or win wars, and will we have a genuine hope for peace.

I have said before: If our enemies lay down their swords, there will be peace, but if we lay down our swords, we simply won't be at all. This is the clearest message of the Winograd report - that our sword is held by a weak hand. I quote from the report: 'This is the first time in Israeli war history that a war in which we were involved ended without our clear victory... as our enemies saw as well.' This is something we cannot afford.

"Therefore, the rebuilding of our strength is not only the charge of the hour, but the charge of our existence. We must rebuild ourselves in every way...

"On July 12 [when the Second Lebanon War started], when danger arose, Israel once again proved its strength by volunteering and answering the call. Reservists left their affairs, showed up at their bases, and waited for orders, while in the north and in Sderot, people remained in shelters without complaining, and elsewhere in the country, people opened their homes for the northern residents who went south. This was the spirit of '48 and '67 and '73 that was once again revealed. We stood as one nation, putting a up a united front, showing national responsibility...

"We gave total backing to the government to achieve its aims and remove the threat. We thought, then, that there was someone we could count on. But in actuality, there was no leadership. The government failed twice - in its performance, and in its reading of the situation. The government was deeply entrenched in its conception of unilateral withdrawals - a policy that failed. In the north it failed, and in the south it is failing. This policy did not advance the peace that we all want; peace cannot be achieved via one-sided moves, but with dialogue with those of our enemy who want to end war. The time has now come to make the necessary changes and corrections. We must restore our deterrence and self-respect."

"We must fix the errors, and first and foremost - the lack of leadership, decision-making, etc. Leadership is the most important part of any organization, large or small. A leader must have a vision and lead the way, and if not, the organization loses its way very quickly. The country is longing for leadership like this; we all feel it. There is a general feeling that there is helplessness and paralysis in every aspect. The people want leaders who will make the necessary decisions, with national responsibility and good judgment. The State of Israel needs a different leadership - experience and not amateurism; judgment and not adventurism; etc. We must return to the nation and ask it what it wants."

Next to speak was MK Effie Eitam of the National Union, who addressed his remarks directly to the government ministers:
"We see you in your shame and embarrassment, hiding behind Ehudgrad, the ruins of your government, knowing that your time is up yet refusing to go. A good democracy doesn't need [rallies in] public squares - it has representatives, etc. But there are times when the government is no longer the public's representative, but only that of itself and its desire for power. That time is now. Tonight we will see in Rabin Square in Tel Aviv that that is the situation now.

"Reservists who fought in the war will be there, and families of those who fell, and many others, and many who won't be able to be there physically - and there will be hope, hope for something better that we deserve and that we will receive, if only you will allow the natural democratic events to take their course.

"There is a very broad consensus, wall to wall, united in their desire to see you go home. You, Olmert, say you will fix the faults - but you are the main fault."

MK Danny Yatom of the Labor Party, which is a leading partner in the government coalition, also called for Olmert's resignation:
"You have failed in all that is concerned with the Second Lebanon War. The time of responsibility has arrived. You must now show leadership - that which was so sorely missing during the war - and quit. This crisis is among the worst in the history of the State. You have lost the confidence of the voters, and you can no longer represent them. Instead of spending your time dealing with political survival, there is a country that has to be run." ...



 

 

The hand writing is on the wall. The Olmert government has been weighed, and found wanting. Should Olmert fall at this time be sure to know it is by the hand of God! Old Belshazzar was as puffed up as the liberal Olmert. He thought God would have to bend to his decrees rather then he bending to God.

Daniel 5:22-25

22 And thou his son, O Belshazzar, hast not humbled thine heart, though thou knewest all this;

23 But hast lifted up thyself against the Lord of heaven; and they have brought the vessels of his house before thee, and thou, and thy lords, thy wives, and thy concubines, have drunk wine in them; and thou hast praised the gods of silver, and gold, of brass, iron, wood, and stone, which see not, nor hear, nor know: and the God in whose hand thy breath is, and whose are all thy ways, hast thou not glorified:

24 Then was the part of the hand sent from him; and this writing was written.

25 And this is the writing that was written, MENE, MENE, TEKEL, UPHARSIN.

KJV

 Olmert did as bad as if he had desecrated the Holy vessels from the House of God when he decided to give away most of the Holy Land to the barbarians. He knew better! He saw what happened to Ariel Sharon right after he gave away the Gaza including the city of Jericho. Olmert, filled with his own pride, has bragged that he will go even beyond what Sharon had done. Olmert brags that before his term is finished he will give away all of Judah and Samaria (The West Bank). Olmert includes almost all the city of Jerusalem with Judah, and I'm convinced Jewish sovereignty over the Temple Mount will be tossed into the deal with the Jerusalem give away. This is plain and simply blasphemy. The Holy Land, Jerusalem, and most importantly the Temple Mount belong to God. He allowed them to fall into the hands of many filthy despots and potentates over the millennia, but in these later days He has given the Jews sovereignty over their Promised Land. In 1967 all of Judah, and Samaria along with all of the city of Jerusalem including the Temple Mount became Jewish. The Jordanian army pulled back across the Jordan River, and made it clear to the international community that they have no desire to ever return. The want no part in any claims to these lands. They have no love for the barbarian Palestinian Authority now wanting to be declared the sovereigns. It was Civil War with the Palestinian refugees inside Jordan when the Palestinians tried to overthrow the Jordanian Monarchy turning it into a barbarian State was enough for Jordan to wipe their hands of the entire matter. They do not want anything to do with the lands west of the Jordan River. They do not want anything to do with the Palestinian Arabs.

Olmert would love to give the West Bank back to the Jordanians, but they want no part of it. His plan is to give it instead to the worst culture in the world today. The culture behind the first hijacking of an airliner bringing the entire international community into their private battles with the Jews. The culture that staged the Olympic Massacre in Germany under the eyes of the world. This is the culture that brought Islamic barbarism to the whole world. This is the culture that introduced child suicide bombers to the world. This is the culture that has been perpetually firing Kassam rockets into Israel. This is the culture that Olmert intends to give all of the West Bank as a staging area from where to kill Jews. It is no wonder the call for impeachment is so strong.

Daniel 5:3-6

3 Then they brought the golden vessels that were taken out of the temple of the house of God which was at Jerusalem; and the king, and his princes, his wives, and his concubines, drank in them.

4 They drank wine, and praised the gods of gold, and of silver, of brass, of iron, of wood, and of stone.

5 In the same hour came forth fingers of a man's hand, and wrote over against the candlestick upon the plaister of the wall of the king's palace: and the king saw the part of the hand that wrote.

6 Then the king's countenance was changed, and his thoughts troubled him, so that the joints of his loins were loosed, and his knees smote one against another.

KJV

 

The hand writing seems implicate. God has publicly stripped Olmert of any honor. It is like Bill Clinton being confronted with the seaman stained dress. Both of these liberal politicians have been weighed in the balances, and found wanting by God. There still can be a different evaluation by the sinful evil men of Israel. The American Democrats found the Clinton sexually perverted behavior in the White House as acceptable. They stood on the Capital steps supporting his presidency, and He survived. Olmert may also survive his incompetence in order to accomplish his blasphemous plan for the Holy Land, Jerusalem, and the Temple Mount. It will not be the first time that sin wins a battle here in this sin filled world. Friend, it is the disposition of the entire war that should be of concern to you. Battles go back and forth, but final victory in this war over the Holy Land is a forgone conclusion according to the Bible. The Lord Jesus Christ is going to win! All those who have refused to be born again, or just gave lip service to spiritual rebirth will lose!

John 3:16-21

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.

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.

21 But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.

U.S. ‘Benchmark Plan’ May be a Timeline for Terror

by Hana Levi Julian

(IsraelNN.com) Israeli officials are worried about a set of so-called “benchmarks” presented last week by U.S. diplomats that would be used as steps toward final status negotiations with the Palestinian Authority.

As before, U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice will fly to the region, this time on May 15th to drag the powerless PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas and unpopular Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert back to the bargaining table to enforce the implementation of those benchmarks.

The eight-month timeline calls for a series of steps that resemble the “confidence-building measures” laid out in the tattered Road Map plan, another U.S. initiative which Israel began to carry out and the PA basically ignored.

Prime Minister Ehud Olmert already tentatively agreed last week to comply with America’s latest laundry list, according to the Reuters news agency. U.S. officials said the PA had also agreed to carry out the plan, which is set to begin this month and carry on through December.

Neither Israel nor the PA, however, has officially responded to the document, which becomes a binding contract if both sides formally accept it.

Israeli officials are deeply concerned about the viability of the plan, authored by U.S. Security Coordinator Keith Dayton, U.S. Ambassador to Israel Richard Jones and U.S. Consul-General in Jerusalem, Jacob Walles.

The benchmarks include a deadline by which Israel will allow PA bus and truck convoys to shuttle between Gaza and PA-controlled areas of Judea and Samaria.

Israel is also expected to remove the security roadblocks in Judea and Samaria and extend operating hours at the major border crossings with Gaza.

More ominous, Israel will be forced to provide arms, ammunition and equipment to PA security forces in an “immediate and ongoing” manner, whenever U.S. Maj.-Gen. Dayton “requests” it.

Israel’s security establishment emphasizes that these moves would dramatically endanger an already vulnerable Israeli civilian population constantly facing missile launchings from Gaza, suicide bombings, and other terrorist attacks.

On the PA side of the deal, a deadline is set for Chairman Mahmoud Abbas (Abu Mazen) to increase deployment of security forces and “begin curbing rocket fire by militants,” according to media reports.

The PA corridor demand is not new. Convoys between the PA territories and Gaza were approved in a deal brokered by U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice in November 2005, before the Hamas terrorist organization became the ruling faction of the PA government.

Although Israel faced numerous attacks prior to the elections, the number skyrocketed after Hamas took control of the PA, adding kidnappings of an IDF soldier, foreign nationals and terrorists from both factions. IDF Corporal Gilad Shalit has yet to be returned by the Hamas-allied terrorists who kidnapped him, killed two soldiers and critically wounded another in a cross-border raid in June 2006. 

Hamas, Fatah Cannot Ensure Safety in PA-Controlled Areas, Even for PA Residents

Thousands of PA residents are desperate to escape the nightmare of life under the PA government, lining up to apply for visas that will enable them to live in other countries.

Hundreds of other PA Arabs have been killed or wounded due to the internecine fighting between Fatah and Hamas terrorists as they battle for control of the government – this, despite the so-called “unity” coalition that was to have ended the bloodbath several months ago.

Foreign journalists no longer maintain permanent bureaus in Gaza – it is simply not safe to do so. Furthermore, the Foreign Press Association recently warned its members to avoid on-site coverage in Gaza if at all possible due to the chaotic conditions and lack of security in the area.

A number of reporters have been kidnapped in the past 12 months, including journalists from Associated Press, the French AFP news agency and others. Some were held for an hour or two, others were held longer. A Fox news team was kept incommunicado in the latter half of 2006 for two weeks. Most recently, a Scottish national named Alan Johnston, a reporter for the British Broadcasting Corporation, was snatched in March and has not been heard from since.

U.S. Ignoring the Dangerous 'Facts on the Ground'

The Bush administration nonetheless insists that the eight-month plan will bring a win-win situation for all parties.

Secretary Rice expresses confidence that the specific deadlines will create a firm structure in a process that has not moved forward despite years of efforts by various U.S. governments.

A senior U.S. official commented the plan provides incentives on both sides – “One side gets security. The other side gets greater [freedom] of movement.”

Israeli officials aren’t so sure; Jerusalem noted that Israel is being told to erase security measures without first making sure that Abbas can keep his promises to ensure security for Israelis at the same time.

As an unnamed Israeli official pointed out, “There is not (sic) conditionality. Even if they don’t complete their obligations, we’ll have to complete ours.”

 

 

The Islamic barbarians were beside themselves when the boarder between Egypt and the Gaza was put entirely under Islamic control. The arms began flowing into the Gaza like water. The rocket attacks on Israel markedly increased. The Gaza was turned into a terrorist staging area for even bolder attacks on the Jews. Islam now sees how to broaden the attack zones by moving the same armaments into Samaria and Judah. The convoys are not the issue. They are already functioning delivering goods back and forth among the Arabs. The issue is convoys inspected only by Islam. The same standards as are applied on the Egyptian Gaza boarder will now be applied to the Gaza Samaria / Judah boarders. I'm sure the Arabs of Samaria and Judah are already digging the secret rocket bunkers from which to fire the expected bonanza. The lesson of the Lebanon War, and the success of Hizbullah is now being applied to Samaria and Judah. The Evangelical White House is making it all possible. The silent majority just fold their hands in prayer, and go right along with the Road Map as planed.

Folks, this eight month plan could well be an eight month plan for the countdown to Armageddon. God is not going to put up with this sin filled generation for long. The Bible is so clear that this miraculous Third Exodus is purposed for dispensational change! The LORD Jesus Christ is coming again! Islam is not going to stop Him. The Olmert government is not going to stop Him. And, Apostate Christianity is not going to stop Him. I do not know how far the Road Map is going to go, but I know it is not going to stop Christ either.

What is happening in the Holy Land has nothing to do with politics. The Kingdom of heaven is at hand, and men need to either repent or perish! The old cry to God thanking Him for delivering the Jews from the Egyptians is about to change. A new cry will be going up in thanks to all God is about to do in this our generation. The generation of the miraculous Third Exodus.

Today the Russian Jews from the North make up a large portion of the Independent Fundamental Jewish Settlers. They are the object of all the fierce persecution taking place by the Olmert Government in conjunction with American Road Map policy. They may well be the first Jews to experience redemption when the Church Age ends, and the Kingdom Age begins. Jesus Christ is coming again to the Holy Land, Jerusalem, and the Temple Mount. Ezekiel's Temple with a throne must be built in preparation for His return. The task is already given to the Jews. The same Jesus Christ of the rapture is the same Messiah of those Jews who will build Ezekiel's Temple. Friend, will you be counted among those of all Ages who will be found in Christ? In our Age only those who are born again will be partakers in the coming Kingdom. Oh friend, come to Christ before it is too late.

 

 

Jeremiah 23:5-8

5 Behold, the days come, saith the Lord, that I will raise unto David a righteous Branch, and a King shall reign and prosper, and shall execute judgment and justice in the earth.

6 In his days Judah shall be saved, and Israel shall dwell safely: and this is his name whereby he shall be called, THE Lord OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS.

7 Therefore, behold, the days come, saith the Lord, that they shall no more say, The Lord liveth, which brought up the children of Israel out of the land of Egypt;

8 But, The Lord liveth, which brought up and which led the seed of the house of Israel out of the north country, and from all countries whither I had driven them; and they shall dwell in their own land.

Nasrallah praises Winograd's 'verdict of failure'

In an unprecedented statement, Hizb'Allah terror leader Hassan Nasrallah yesterday praised the Winograd Committee's report on the Second Lebanon War, expressing his respect for Israel's "verdict of failure." During an appearence in Beirut, Nasrallah said:
"Even though they're our enemies, it is worthy of respect that the political forces and the Israeli public act quickly to save their state, entity, army and their existence in the crisis." Nasrallah added that "When it comes to survival, the Zionists are prepared to sacrifice Olmert and a thousand more like him." The outpspoken terror leader also said that Winograd had vindicated his claims that Israel was defeated in the war. "The report is a clear declaration of defeat for Israel," Nasrallah said. "The report wrote the word failure more than 100 times."

 

 

It seems the only one still going around claiming the Second Lebanon War was a clear cut Israeli victory is Olmert. Nasrallah is convinced Allah is about to give him the even bigger victory of exterminating all the Jews of the Holy Land. A victory over a nation of monkeys is not very honorable so Nasrallah can afford to give the Jews some respect at this time. The Second Lebanon War would not have been lost if Olmert would not have turned it into an attempted political victory. He cleaned out the officer corps of conservatives who might have balked at removing over 250,000 Independent Fundamental Jewish Settlers, but who would have defeated Hizbullah knowing their God gives them the victory. Olmert replaced them with liberal officers who believe in God only with their lips, and who proved totally incompetent in battle. They will, however, prove themselves vicious fighters in removing the mostly passive civilian settlers from their homes in the Holy Land.

We here in America are about to follow Olmert as the liberal Democrats flex their muscles in Iraq. They are determined to bring their politics into the War which will only assure defeat. Nothing will convince them of the disaster they are creating. They are going to call it peace, and they are going to shove it down the throats of all the hated conservatives.

It is God who is giving this generation a verdict of failure! This is the only verdict that matters. The Church has failed to keep separated from false doctrine, and worldliness. All that matters to this generation of Christians is numbers! The biggest congregation. The biggest viewing audience. The biggest number of converts coming forward to give lip service to the god of this generation. The Great Apostate Whore is growing by leaps and bounds. Only a small remnant are expected to be raptured as God brings the Church Age to a close. They will be translated out of Great Apostasy which will be left behind as fodder for the antichrist. Failure will be the verdict when the rapture takes place. The lukewarm generation of neither cold or hot Christians will close the Church Age in failure.

The verdict of failure toward Israel is even more clear. God will have to raise up a remnant out of the masses of failed Jews now living in the Holy Land. Two Witnesses of Revelation 11, and 144,000 Jews of Revelation 7 & 14 will be the remnant God will raise to set the foundation for the next Kingdom Age. A Temple must be built. A Holy Jewish Temple on the Temple Mount. A Temple with a throne and an altar. A throne for the coming King of Glory, and an altar where blood sacrifice will offered daily for the next thousand years in remembrance of Calvary.

The verdict is failure for all of Islam. They will not step aside for the coming Jewish King, and so Ezekiel 39 is what the Bible says will be their fate. A horrific defeat in the fields and on the mountains of the Holy Land. Their dead bodies will be fodder for the beasts of the field, and the fowl of the air. Their destruction will open the door for the remnant of Jews to build Ezekiel's Temple on the Temple Mount.

The verdict is failure to the gentile nations as God brings an end to the times of the gentiles. Armageddon is their fate at the end of the Great Tribulation when the LORD Jesus Christ returns for the second time. Just as Islam would not step aside at the beginning of the Great Tribulation for the remnant of Jews in the Holy Land so also will the gentile nations refuse to step aside for the Jewish Messiah King when He comes at the end of the Great Tribulation.

Friend, what will the verdict of God be when He evaluates your life? Will you be found a failure to have come to Christ for salvation? You can fix that failure right now by coming to Him! Jesus died in your place at Calvary. He bore your sin on His body. He suffered and died on your behalf. He shed His blood so your sin could be washed away. His resurrection was proof that His perfect sacrifice was acceptable by the perfect God of the Bible. The offer of salvation for you is by grace. There is no price (you could not pay for such great a gift anyway). All Jesus asks is that you come to Him in humble repentance, and ask Him to save you. Friend, won't you come to Christ today?

Matthew 11:28-30

28 Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.

29 Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.

30 For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.

2 And though they say, The Lord liveth; surely they swear falsely.

3 O Lord, are not thine eyes upon the truth? thou hast stricken them, but they have not grieved; thou hast consumed them, but they have refused to receive correction: they have made their faces harder than a rock; they have refused to return.

4 Therefore I said, Surely these are poor; they are foolish: for they know not the way of the Lord, nor the judgment of their God.

Terrorists Hit Sderot as Abbas and Olmert Weaken

by Tzvi Ben Gedalyahu

Terrorists continued to unleash Kassam rocket, rock and firebombing attacks from Gaza and throughout Judea and Samaria Saturday, most of which have been ignored by Israeli media.

Islamic Jihad terrorists attacked the Negev town of Sderot with three rockets, and one of them scored a direct hit on a home, causing extensive damage but no injuries. Five more rockets fell in open areas across the western Negev Saturday. At least four more were fired Sunday. 

The rock and firebomb attacks Saturday included stonings of a bus and cars near Bethlehem, on the road between Kfar Sava and communities in Samaria and on a highway south of Hevron. Several vehicles sustained damage, and one man suffered injuries in his eye.

The escalation in attacks came as Palestinian Authority (PA) Chairman Mahmoud Abbas and Prime Minister Ehud Olmert have become more powerless to fight terrorism and even failed to resume twice-monthly meetings this week.

American Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice initially brought the two together in a meeting marked by angry shouts and mutual charges of failure to act. They last met in mid-April in what appears to be a quick end to the bi-weekly face-to-face conferences resulting from an American effort to force renewed negotiations

Abbas, Olmert Lead Weak Governments

Each leader is facing his own political crisis, leaving both of them without time or energy to deal with terrorist attacks. Hamas, which shares the reins of power with Fatah, challenged the Bush administration Saturday, saying it does not accept an American plan calling for more "good will" measures by Israel in return for another attempt to stop terrorist attacks.

The American government has been pressuring Israel to eliminate more army checkpoints, although their removal usually is followed by an increasing number of attacks

Government officials have expressed strong opposition to the latest American plan for more "good will" measures in return for PA plans, without action, to curtail terrorism. The Hamas rejection of the American proposal may bury it.

Abbas has renewed threats that he will call new elections in an effort to reverse the Hamas domination in the legislature. He claimed that the government will collapse because of the continued American-led sanctions against transferring money to a PA government that is shared by Hamas.

"Tensions between Fatah and Hamas are very high," said a senior PA official. "The situation could deteriorate into violence at any moment."

Prime Minister Olmert is facing one crisis after the other, including charges of corruption and blame from the Winograd Committee for failures in the war against Hizbullah. He has resisted calls to resign.

Despite repeated vows not to tolerate continued attacks from Gaza, the Olmert administration has confined its counter-terrorist actions to Judea and Samaria, where it killed three terrorists in Jenin Friday afternon.

Attempts by terrorists to infiltrate from Egypt also continued Saturday, and army soldiers killed one armed man who tried to sneak across the border.

Egypt has taken responsibility for patrolling the border since Israel withdrew from the area following the demolition of Jewish communities in the Gaza region two summers ago.

Hamas militias said Saturday they have taken control of the sites of most of the demolished Jewish communities, which were supposed to have become the foundation for growth in Arab agriculture.

In a separate incident within the PA Saturday, Al Aksa Martyrs Brigades terrorists aligned with Abbas executed a man suspected of cooperating with Israel.

Folks, please click the above link that will take you to a video about the Independent Fundamental Jewish Settler attempt to hold on the Promised Land despite the stiff liberal political opposition they face. You will not find this report anywhere in the main stream media. I had to go to underground sources. Often the real truth is hidden purposely from the public by liberal bias such as the continued rocket attacks being launched against the settler town of Sderot. I just tried a 10K walk with a group of Volkswalkers. My feet gave out at the 8 K mark, and I did not get credit for finishing the walk. I guess I'll have to stick to the 5K walks for a while longer. The pace is 3 miles, or 5 K per hour. It sounds like the Independent Fundamental Jewish Settlers according to the video were forced by the Israeli Army to walk for 2- 1/2 hours. That must be close to 8 miles or 12K. I would not have made it! I have a good perspective right now of what these settlers are facing as they try to fight the Olmert government, and hang on to their homes and lands.

The Islamic movement aimed at taking over the Holy Land is not limited to just the boarder towns. Bethlehem is a prime target where a strong Christian Arab presents existed for thousands of years. Arafat began the intimidation with death squads that have now driven out almost all the Christians from Bethlehem. It is now an Islamic barbarian stronghold. Only a few years ago the barbarians fleeing from the Israeli Army held up in the Church of Nativity in the heart of Bethlehem. The Pope who hates the Jews more then even the barbaric Moslems gave them sanctuary. They repaid his kindness by trying to burn down that ancient Church. Today they intend to build a Mosque on the front lawn of the Church of Nativity that will completely block it from view. Even the main entrance will no longer be available to the Christians forcing them to use a side entrance to access the Church.

Hate has no bounds. It's origin is sin, and as we approach these last days it is clear to see how the environment for the antichrist is set in place. The world does not want a Messiah to restore righteousness. The world wants the antichrist so they can sin and hate all the more. The era of the majority has bloomed, and the majority wants the freedom to sin. The lusts of the world, flesh, and the devil rule with the majority wanting to get on the most popular bandwagon. We are entering a new era of the liberal. Tolerance for a minority seeking higher values does not exist. Hate is the liberal response to all who would defy whatever sinful direction they may choose to go. The antichrist is ready to point the masses in the direction of destruction, and the gullible crowds are ready to be his fodder.

Friend, you need not let this evil world drag you along as the antichrist takes control. You can break from the crowd. You can be more then a conqueror in Christ. We will mostly lose all the little battles, but the final victory which is the only one that counts can be ours. These last days are going to be hard days for those who love Christ, but we have the assurance we will conquer all things in Christ. Paul tells us in Romans that there is no power strong enough to separate us from Christ. All the liberal politicians, and even all of Islam do not have the power to stop Christ from keeping His word to us. Friend it all starts with being born again. This is the only place you can start with the Christ of the Bible. Won't you come to Him today? 

 

Romans 8:36-39

36 As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.

37 Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.

38 For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come,

39 Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Hamas' Mickey Mouse: Teaching Kids to Hate and Kill

by Gil Ronen

(IsraelNN.com) Hamas TV has a new children's show which features a Mickey Mouse lookalike. But this Mickey does not romp about with Pluto, nor does he woo Minnie Mouse. Instead – he teaches his young viewers to fight the "Zionist Occupation" and dream of a world dominated by Islam

The squeaky-voiced Mickey Mouse lookalike, named Farfur, is the star of a weekly children’s program called Tomorrow’s Pioneers on the official Hamas TV station (Al-Aqsa TV), which broadcasts from Gaza via satellite to the entire Arab world. Farfur and his co-host, a young girl named Saraa’, teach children about such things as the importance of the daily prayers and drinking milk, but also instruct them to hate Israel and the US and support "resistance" – a euphemism for te

Farfur tells children that they must pray in the mosque five times a day until there is “world leadership under Islamic leadership.” The earnest and soft-spoken Saraa’ explains that the nucleus of the Islamic leadership of the world will be from “all of Palestine,” including Israel. Farfur refers to Israel as “the oppressive invading Zionist occupation,” which the children must "resist."

Saraa’ announces that after death, the children will have to answer to Allah for what they did or did not do for the Al Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem and for Palestinian prisoners: “I remind you that Al-Aqsa and the prisoners are a responsibility on our shoulders, and Allah will ask us on Resurrection Day what we gave for their sake," she tells the tots viewing the show.

According to Palestinian Media Watch, "using a character based on an appealing, world-famous and beloved icon like Mickey Mouse to teach Islamic supremacy and resistance as Islamic duty is a powerful and effective way to indoctrinate children."
 

The program encourages participation by child viewers, who phone in to the show and recite poems with images of hate and violence; for example, “We will destroy the chair of the despots, so they will taste the flame of death,” and, in another poem, "Rafah sings ‘Oh, oh.’ Its answer is an AK-47. We who do not know fear, we are the predators of the forest."

Folks, if you think this Islamic generation of suicide bombers is horrific, wait until you see this next generation come up. These Mickey Mouse nurtured barbarians will never make peace with either Jew, Christian, or any other infidel. They will not even make peace with the antichrist when he comes on the scene. I suppose this is even more evidence why Islam is destroyed at the beginning of the Great Tribulation rather then at any other time. God is going to use Islam as an example to the rest of the world as to what happens when the return of the LORD Jesus Christ is resisted. The puffed-up pride of Islam makes them unique in the world today, and I believe God is going to deal with them in a very unique way. Ezekiel 39 is the Biblical answer to Islamic influence over the Holy Land. Today Islam stands boldly in the way of the plan for the Holy Land found in the Bible. A Jewish King is coming to set up His Jewish Kingdom. The miraculous Third Exodus is already reality. Soon the Last Holy Jewish Temple must go up on the Temple Mount. The Al Aqsa, and Dome of the Rock mosques must be bulldozed away. It must be obvious that Islam must be swept out of the way at the same time. I believe in the aftermath of Ezekiel 39 not only will the Jews be free of Islamic influence over the Holy Land, but the antichrist will make his appearance signing a peace treaty with the Jews as the representative of the Western World in the absence of Islam. The peace treaty will allow the Jews to build their Temple. 5 out of every 6 Moslems will be dead. Islam will never recover from their soon coming invasion of the Holy Land.

Ezekiel 39:1-5

39 Therefore, thou son of man, prophesy against Gog, and say, Thus saith the Lord God; Behold, I am against thee, O Gog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal:

2 And I will turn thee back, and leave but the sixth part of thee, and will cause thee to come up from the north parts, and will bring thee upon the mountains of Israel:

3 And I will smite thy bow out of thy left hand, and will cause thine arrows to fall out of thy right hand.

4 Thou shalt fall upon the mountains of Israel, thou, and all thy bands, and the people that is with thee: I will give thee unto the ravenous birds of every sort, and to the beasts of the field to be devoured.

5 Thou shalt fall upon the open field: for I have spoken it, saith the Lord God.

KJV

 

Islam will never recover from this prophecy once it is fulfilled. The Jews will be free to build Ezekiel's Temple on the Temple Mount. The antichrist will be free to impress the world with his wiles which will ultimately lead to his self-declaration as being god! What is left of Islam will be ready to give up on Allah, and follow this latest usurper with the same devotion they gave to Mohamed and the Koran.

Islam is doomed. They are doomed by the God of the Bible for their bold resistance to the return of the LORD Jesus Christ. They are doomed by the coming antichrist who will demand they turn from Allah to him, or die. The blasphemous Koran written by Mohamed is doomed to the dung heap of history with all the other books of false religions. Most of all Islam is doomed because of what they are doing to their own children. Islam worships the god of the barbarians. They joyfully sacrifice their children to Molech. Justice demands God act because this lukewarm generation does nothing. God has given both Israel and the United States the power to smite Islam for their barbaric behavior. That is not going to happen under the wave of liberal political power now washing over the planet. The time is right for the fall of Islam. The Bible is clear it will happen on the mountains, and in the fields of the Holy Land. The fall is a surety for the Lord God of the Bible has spoken it! The Paklestinian Arabs are about to be humiliated as were the Philistines who went before them in rebellion against God, and His future plans for the Holy Land. I can only imagine what the image of a emerod must have looked like. I only wonder what the Palestinian barbarians will be required to make as an appeasement to the Great God of the Bible?

What about you? Are you going to fall before this omnipotent God who dictates the future of the Holy Land? He has declared His only begotten Son is coming again to the Holy Land, Jerusalem, and the Temple Mount. He is not coming as Allah  the Arabic god. He is not coming as the christ of the Apostate Church left behind after the rapture. He is coming as the Jewish Messiah of the Two Witnesses and 144,000 Jews of Revelation. Only the born again will be part of the coming Kingdom our LORD Jesus Christ is going to establish. Friend, are you born again? Have you come to this Christ of the Bible. The Christ without spot or blemish who laid down the only perfect sacrifice that could ever be offered for sin. Friend, come to this Christ, and live!

 

1 Samuel 5:1-6

5 And the Philistines took the ark of God, and brought it from Eben-ezer unto Ashdod.

2 When the Philistines took the ark of God, they brought it into the house of Dagon, and set it by Dagon.

3 And when they of Ashdod arose early on the morrow, behold, Dagon was fallen upon his face to the earth before the ark of the Lord. And they took Dagon, and set him in his place again.

4 And when they arose early on the morrow morning, behold, Dagon was fallen upon his face to the ground before the ark of the Lord; and the head of Dagon and both the palms of his hands were cut off upon the threshold; only the stump of Dagon was left to him.

5 Therefore neither the priests of Dagon, nor any that come into Dagon's house, tread on the threshold of Dagon in Ashdod unto this day.

6 But the hand of the Lord was heavy upon them of Ashdod, and he destroyed them, and smote them with emerods, even Ashdod and the coasts thereof.

KJV

1 Samuel 5:9

9 And it was so, that, after they had carried it about, the hand of the Lord was against the city with a very great destruction: and he smote the men of the city, both small and great, and they had emerods in their secret parts.

KJV

1 Samuel 6:17-18

17 And these are the golden emerods which the Philistines returned for a trespass offering unto the Lord; for Ashdod one, for Gaza one, for Askelon one, for Gath one, for Ekron one;

18 And the golden mice, according to the number of all the cities of the Philistines belonging to the five lords, both of fenced cities, and of country villages, even unto the great stone of Abel, whereon they set down the ark of the Lord: which stone remaineth unto this day in the field of Joshua, the Beth-shemite.

2 Now when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judaea in the days of Herod the king, behold, there came wise men from the east to Jerusalem,

King Herod's tomb discovered at Herodium
 

 

Ambitious ruler's final resting place uncovered by Hebrew U team

Professor Ehud Netzer of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem Institute of Archaeology has discovered the final resting place of Herod the Great, king of Judea from 37 to 4 BCE, at Herodium. Herod was, and still is, renowned for his stunning building projects, of which Herodium is considered the most outstanding.
    
The long search for Herod the Great's tomb is now that the remains of his grave, sarcophagus and mausoleum have been uncovered on Mount Herodium's northeastern slope.
 
Herod was the Roman-appointed king of Judea from 37 to 4 BCE, who was renowned for his numerous building projects, including the reconstruction of the Temple in Jerusalem, the grand mountain palace of Masada, and the outstanding complex at Herodium, some 15 kilometers south of Jerusalem. .
 
Herodium - regarded as the most impressive of Herod's projects - is the only site that carries the ruler's name, and is also the location he chose to be buried and memorialize himself. Prof. Netzer said in his announcement that the exposure of his tomb is the climax of the research at this site.



 

 

This should forever silence the nay-sayers who are forever attacking the veracity of the Bible. It should also silence the Islamic religion which is built upon the lie that there is no significant Jewish presents found in the Holy Land that predates Islam. The very foundations upon which the Al Aqsa and Dome of the Rock mosques are built were laid down by this King Herod now rediscovered from the annals of history. Moslems who are so big on calling for the death penalty on anyone who even hints at something that demeans Allah must now face the reality that their favorite Al Aqsa mosque is built on a Jewish foundation laid down by the Jewish King Herod. Every time those oh so holy Moslems get on their knees to worship their blasphemous usurper of the Great God of the Bible in the mosque, they are kneeling on Holy Jewish foundations. How demeaning this must be to such a proper god? Folks, Islam of today is a farce. It has only been in this generation that the Al Aqsa mosque took on all this holy fervor from the barbarians. It had always been a backwater religious site until Arafat saw the significant political achievements he could gain by changing Islamic history. Most Moslems had no interest in contaminating themselves with such an overwhelming Jewish presents found at the site, but Arafat convinced the Palestinian Arabs that if they did not turn the mosque into some kind of sacred site the Jews would get it.

We all know the consequences coming out of the new history Arafat wrote. The Palestinian Moslems believed it right away, and were laying down their lives in groves to show their love for Al Aqsa. Today, it is not just the Palestinians, but the entire Moslem world that has embraced love and loyalty to Al Aqsa. It happened so quick that no one considered the foundation upon which Al Aqsa is built. Hordes of Islamic warriors have gone off to that barbaric sexually perverted paradise for the sake of Al Aqsa, and it is too late to contemplate the serious foundation contamination problems unique to that mosque. The lie is always the way out for the barbarians. They are not very bright so they are easily bamboozled. Arafat just said that the Bible, and Jewish history is a lie. That King David and King Solomon just never existed. The same goes for King Herod. The Jewish foundation he laid that the whole world can see so plainly Islam denies as a figment of the infidel's imagination. The not so bright Islamic world accepts this Islamic explanation as a reasonable answer, and so give their lives for the love of Al Aqsa.

It has just become more difficult for Islam to lie. The greatest lies of Islam is that the Koran supplants the Bible in authority. That Mohamed is a greater prophet then the LORD Jesus Christ. That Islamic history negates all history that has gone before. And, most relevant to this very day that Islam is going to be victorious over the Jews in the Holy Land. Friend, do not believe the lies of Islam! The LORD Jesus Christ as the King of the Jews is coming again to the Holy Land, Jerusalem, and the Temple Mount. Dispensational change is coming to planet earth. Have you come to this Christ for salvation? Have you learned to love this Christ more the death. Will you be counted among those who will enter into His glorious Kingdom. Friend, you must be born again. You must be washed clean in the blood of the Lamb. Won't you come to this Christ right now? He has the power to change your heart forever. Come, and be saved.

Yesha Protestor, Mother of 6, Sentenced to Three Months

by Hillel Fendel

(IsraelNN.com) Mother of six and expelled northern Shomron resident Miriam Adler has been sentenced to three months in jail or its equivalent in public service. Her crime: Attacking a policeman during a Disengagement-related protest.

The incident occurred shortly before the Disengagement in August 2005, when police came to arrest her and her husband for their vocal and active opposition to the expulsion. As she told Arutz-7 last year:

We lived [in 2005-6] in Sa-Nur, one of the four Shomron communities destroyed in the Disengagement. My husband and I were both placed in jail, in administrative detention, for the two critical weeks of the expulsion, so that our children had to go through it without us

When they arrested me, it was very violent; the police charged me with violence, and I charged them with the same. My complaint was of course ignored, but their charges that I had attacked a policeman were taken very seriously. They called me in several times and I didn't show up. Finally, [in August 2006], instead of conducting the hearings without me, as they often do in these cases, the judge decided to order my arrest.

The police came with a very large force to our home in Tal Menashe, and it took them five hours to get past all the protestors and finally arrest me. I was in jail overnight, and then in the morning they threatened me that I would sit in prison until the end of the proceedings against me. I admitted defeat - I have children at home, and I couldn't allow myself to remain in prison; I was even afraid that they would take my baby away from me - and so I agreed to their conditions.

Miriam, who grew up with her refusenik-parents and two younger siblings in a one-room apartment in Moscow, showed up at future hearings, but did not participate, explaining that she refuses to recognize the justice system.

"Behind this seemingly fragile person hides a violent, aggressive and dangerous personality," Judge Clara Rejenino ruled Thursday. "She does not regret her crimes and she plans to commit them again... The public welfare demands that she be sent to jail, and she must be taught a lesson... " However, the judge continued, because the defendant has six children, she said that Miriam may perform public service works instead, in addition to an 11-month probationary sentence, as well as what Miriam called the "most maddening of all," a 1,000-shekel compensation to be paid to the policeman.

Miriam said this week that her complaint of the policeman's violence against her was not investigated at all, "while their indictment against me is purposely designed to destroy any spark of opposition and resistance to the regime's actions... I was convicted, of course, and the Prosecution asked for a stiff sentence in order to educate me for my lack of surrender and cooperation with the courts and police."

Miriam said she hopes her struggle will help others who are in the same position: "If many people join, we can beat the current law system. It could be that individuals will have to pay a price along the way, but that's how it is in war - and this is war."

"True, this State was to be the beginning of our Redemption," she told Arutz-7 last year, "but I'm not so sure anymore. In any event, I care about it and about our People too much to merely go along with them, as if this were some foreign country. This country is mine, and I feel a responsibility to the People of Israel, and I hope that my gestures will be a step along the right path."

 

 

The Jewish liberal politicians are in control, and woe to any who dare protest their one-sided rule. I fear what has happened in Israel is happening here in the United States. Liberalism has a new life since the 2006 elections. Woe to any who dare protest their one-sided rule seems to be the message they are sending. Pay back with threats of impeachment is what I'm hearing.

What is happening in Israel is far more important then what is happening in the US. The focus of God is swinging back to the Holy Land. Dispensational change means the Church Age is coming to an end with the soon coming rapture. America has been the bastion of Christianity in these last few hundred years, but that is all coming to an end. The future of the Holy Land is where the focus of God will be for the next thousand years. A seven year period of Great Tribulation as revealed in Daniel, Revelation, and other books of prophecy reveal the end of the times of the gentiles, and opens the door for the Jewish Kingdom Age dispensation. The King of Glory is coming to rule the planet from the Holy Land, Jerusalem, and the Temple Mount (Mount Zion).

I feel very sorry for poor Miriam Adler. She grew up in a one room apartment in Moscow watching her refusnik parents fight against the oppression of communism. They knew they were specifically persecuted because they were Jewish. They could not publicly practice any form of Judaism, and so only the private family worship was what sustained them. The Promised Land was undoubtedly held up as a place of refuge from all the persecution they faced daily. What joy they must have felt when the iron curtain fell, and Allyia to Israel became possible. How sad that they as Independent Fundamental Jewish Settlers are again facing the same persecution they experienced in Moscow, but this time by the Jewish liberal politicians. How sad is her statement: "True, this State was to be the beginning of our Redemption," she told Arutz-7 last year, "but I'm not so sure anymore. The liberal secular mind set is being demanded of Miriam. The Olmert government is demanding she submit to their liberal ways of determining the future of the Holy Land. The threat is that they will take her babies away if she does not submit. Even the communists did not stoop to such filthy politics when they were in Moscow. Miriam seems to be motivated by her love for the Jewish people:  This country is mine, and I feel a responsibility to the People of Israel, and I hope that my gestures will be a step along the right path." This is her mistake as has been the mistake of Jews down through the ages. It is not the Jewish people, but the Jewish God who must be honored and glorified. It is the God of the Bible who is perfect, not the seed of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. The Jews have had to be chastened down through the millenniums because of the Olmert's of the past who led them into evil. Miriam needs to submit to the Holy God of the Bible. The day of her expected redemption will only come when she allows the Jewish Messiah to circumcise her heart. Today, during the Church Age she must come to the Jewish Christ of the Bible. After the rapture she will need to follow the Two Witnesses and 144,000 sealed Jews who will set the foundation for the coming Kingdom Age. They will submit to the same Christ who translated all the born again Christians out of the Great Apostate Whore of today's Christianity. On that day Miriam will find new persecutors who will hate her for her Jewishness, and for her faith in the coming again Jewish Messiah.

Friend, the land can't redeem, nor can the people of the land. The land and the people are only the product of redemption. They are powerless to produce redemption. Only the God of the Bible is the redeemer! Only to Him can you appeal for such a wondrous miracle. John the Baptist was prophesied to go before the redeemer, and prepare His ways. The message of John was repent for the Kingdom of heaven is at hand! Friend, have you repented before your redeemer? Have you come to the Biblical LORD Jesus Christ for forgiveness of your sin? There can be no redemption if you do not come! Oh dear friend, won't you come to Christ?

Luke 21:25-28

25 And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring;

26 Men's hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken.

27 And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory.

28 And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.

70 As he spake by the mouth of his holy prophets, which have been since the world began:

71 That we should be saved from our enemies, and from the hand of all that hate us;

72 To perform the mercy promised to our fathers, and to remember his holy covenant;

73 The oath which he sware to our father Abraham,

74 That he would grant unto us, that we being delivered out of the hand of our enemies might serve him without fear,

75 In holiness and righteousness before him, all the days of our life.

76 And thou, child, shalt be called the prophet of the Highest: for thou shalt go before the face of the Lord to prepare his ways;

77 To give knowledge of salvation unto his people by the remission of their sins,

26 To declare, I say, at this time his righteousness: that he might be just, and the justifier of him which believeth in Jesus.

UN attacked for spreading Christianity?
Gaza terrorists claim UN school is cover for missionary work

The deadly attack Monday against a United Nations school in the Gaza Strip was carried out by Islamic terrorists because the international body was "spreading Christian missionary activity," according to a statement faxed to WorldNetDaily.

The group that sent the fax and claimed responsibility for the attack has operated in Gaza as an Islamic outreach movement seeking to make secular Muslims more religious, but the leader of the organization confirmed to WND yesterday that his organization had recently opened what it called a "military wing" to target individuals, establishments and groups it claims are "corrupting Islam."

One person was killed Monday when unidentified attackers hurled grenades at a UN-run school in the Gaza Strip after announcing on loudspeakers they were angry over the participation of boys and girls in a sports event. The gunmen said the event "taught children immoral values." Six other people, including at least one pupil and a school principal, were wounded in the attack.

Monday's attack was the latest in a wave of violence against Christian and non-Muslim establishments in Gaza since Israel withdrew from the territory in 2005.

Anti-Christian riots have also been reported in the West Bank cities of Ramallah, Nazareth and surrounding villages, as well as in towns in Gaza. In Bethlehem, the city's Christian population, once 90 percent, has dwindled to less than 25 percent, according to Israeli surveys.

Analysts told WND that the recent bombings of secular and Christian institutions in Gaza could be an indication that the ruling Hamas party is seeking to impose Islamic rule on the Palestinian population.
 

 

 

The barbarians are breeding more barbarians. They shove their barbaric behavior on whomever they wish knowing there will be no repercussions from this neither cold or hot generation. The Christian Church remains docile in the face of these Islamic barbarians. We watched Islam push most of the Christians out of that little town of Bethlehem in our generation without so much as a whimper. We allow them to kill both Christians and Jews without penalty. We have the power, but the will is gone to stop them. The feather bed Christians and Jews would rather pay tribute then get up out of their comfort. We pay tribute by holding to the Road Map even though the Islamic barbarians throw it back in our face. They do not want our tribute. They want the Holy Land! They will never be satisfied until every Christian and Jew has been exterminated. They justify their barbaric behavior with the flimsiest of excuses. It is just more of their throwing it in our face. The more ridiculous the justification for murder, the more great do they perceive their god of the barbarians. Never has Allah won more praise then from this generation of Islam. They do not need mighty armies. They can beat us right in the bedroom of the feather bed.

Proverbs 6:9

9 How long wilt thou sleep, O sluggard? when wilt thou arise out of thy sleep?

KJV

 

It seems to me the sleep of this generation is permanent. God is going to have to intervene in the Holy Land. The political winds have turned, and the sluggard shall not be moved out of his comfort. Talk and meaningless negotiations is all I see for the future of the Holy Land. All this time Islam will be preparing for invasion. They understand the politics of the West, and know the Jews will be left out to dry when it comes to getting up out of that political feather bed. Ezekiel 38 & 39 predict an Islamic "Last Jihad" invasion of Israel. Where is the West? We are not there! We are fast asleep in our oh so comfy lukewarm feather beds. We don't even stir when the Islamic hordes begin moving from North, South, and East. The merchants of the Mediterranean will know the purpose, but do nothing. They will know Islam is coming to take a prey. Islam is coming to exterminate every Christian and Jew from the Holy Land.

Ezekiel 38:13-16

13 Sheba, and Dedan, and the merchants of Tarshish, with all the young lions thereof, shall say unto thee, Art thou come to take a spoil? hast thou gathered thy company to take a prey? to carry away silver and gold, to take away cattle and goods, to take a great spoil?

14 Therefore, son of man, prophesy and say unto Gog, Thus saith the Lord God; In that day when my people of Israel dwelleth safely, shalt thou not know it?

15 And thou shalt come from thy place out of the north parts, thou, and many people with thee, all of them riding upon horses, a great company, and a mighty army:

16 And thou shalt come up against my people of Israel, as a cloud to cover the land; it shall be in the latter days, and I will bring thee against my land, that the heathen may know me, when I shall be sanctified in thee, O Gog, before their eyes.

KJV

 

Where is the Christian Church? Islam is there. The Jews are there. The merchants are there. Where is the Christian United States? We are no where to be found! We are fast asleep in our feather beds. The born again Christians will most probably have been translated up to heaven at this point in history. The Pelosi/Clinton Democrats I would expect will be locked in endless talk and negotiations. The time will be right for Islam to invade. I suspect the Road Map will have stripped the Jews of most of their defensive ability. They will be resting on the United States to provide them security, but they will never have counted on the talkability of liberal minded Democratic women settled into their vanity filled feather beds.

It will be the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob who must intervene for the Jews, or the final solution would become reality. Islam is intent on finishing what Hitler started. Islam foolishly forgets what the God of the Bible did to the Nazis, and their thousand year reign. It will not be the Allies who put Islam in it's place, but it will be the God of the Bible by supernatural force who will set the stage for the Great Tribulation. Notice one of the purposes of Ezekiel 38& 39 is so that the heathen may know who this Great God of the Bible is! Much like Pharaoh of old it will only harden their hearts all the more, but they will know that to resist God's future plan for the Holy Land is futile! The LORD Jesus Christ is coming again. He is coming to the Holy Land, Jerusalem, and Mount Zion. Islam's barbaric god Allah has no power to stop what God is doing. The whole world is facing judgment! Are you ready? Are you secure in the blood of the Lamb? Friend, the latter days are upon us. The only refuge found in the Bible is Christ! Won't you come to Him for forgiveness of your sin? Won't you come to Him for salvation? Wake up oh sluggard! The time is almost gone!

 

 

Jonah 1:4-7

4 But the Lord sent out a great wind into the sea, and there was a mighty tempest in the sea, so that the ship was like to be broken.

5 Then the mariners were afraid, and cried every man unto his god, and cast forth the wares that were in the ship into the sea, to lighten it of them. But Jonah was gone down into the sides of the ship; and he lay, and was fast asleep.

6 So the shipmaster came to him, and said unto him, What meanest thou, O sleeper? arise, call upon thy God, if so be that God will think upon us, that we perish not.

7 And they said every one to his fellow, Come, and let us cast lots, that we may know for whose cause this evil is upon us. So they cast lots, and the lot fell upon Jonah.

Islamic Movement Initiates Effort to Flood Temple Mount

by Nissan Ratzlav-Katz

(IsraelNN.com) Sheikh Raad Salah, the head of the northern branch of the Islamic Movement, has been working hard to ensure that thousands of Muslims will arrive in Jerusalem's Old City every day to pray in the Al-Aksa mosque, located on the Temple Mount. Salah has been talking with Arab clan leaders from Jerusalem and its environs in an effort to convince them to take turns bringing their entire extended families to the mosque.

Salah also said that he plans to see to it that Jerusalem mosques are closed on Friday, the Muslim day of rest, in order to force all those who wish to take part in group prayers to travel to the Al-Aksa mosque. He has talked to Muslim leaders in other parts of Israel, asking them to tell their followers to visit the Jerusalem mosque in order to demonstrate a strong Muslim presence there. Such a presence, Salah is telling local Muslims, is the best defense against "Israeli aggression."

Salah expressed his conviction that Jerusalem will fall into Muslim hands by "Heavenly promise." He also said that in such a conquest, no sign of a Jewish presence will remain.

Several months ago, Jerusalem police initiated an investigation of Salah for incitement-filled, anti-Israel speeches he made in Nazareth and Wadi Joz. Earlier, he was banned from Jerusalem for several days after inciting violent mobs against Israeli policemen. Salah claimed that Israel was trying to destroy the mosques on the Temple Mount. He was also accused of attacking a police officer during the anti-Israel demonstrations.

The Islamic Movement is a branch of the Muslim Brotherhood, as is Hamas. Group members call Salah the leader of the "1948 branch."


 

 

The Islamic barbarians will not be satisfied with the extermination of every Jew living in the Holy Land, but intend to wipe away all evidence of Jewish presents ever in the Holy Land! The truth is the Al Aqsa mosque which Islam is intent on raising up to exalted status is really built upon a Jewish foundation laid down by King Herod. The plan is to lie. They just tell their not so bright fellow barbarians that the foundation is Islamic not Jewish despite all the archeological evidence. They will murder any of their own who might have a higher level of intelligence as a traitor to Allah, and thus the Islamic lie becomes Islamic theology. These barbarians will murder anyone who would question their ever changing theology. They kill each other with the same relish that they kill the infidels. They are barbarians through and through. God has already determined that they are unfit to live in the future He has planed for the Holy Land, Jerusalem, and Mount Zion. The rod of these wicked barbarians is not going to rest upon the lot of the righteous Jews soon to set the new foundation  for the coming Kingdom Age. That foundation will begin upon Mount Zion. Ezekiel's (Ezekiel 40 - 48) Holy Jewish Temple must be built where Al Aqsa and the Dome of the Rock mosques now stand. It must be obvious to all that Islam will have to be destroyed before the Jews can build this soon coming Temple. Ezekiel 39 which is just before Ezekiel 40 - 48 is the obvious solution. The Last Jihad is described in Ezekiel 39 as one of the most horrific accounts of God's wrath as manifested against any single group of people. The Islamic barbarians are doomed! They will not stand in the way of God's plan for the future of the Holy Land, Jerusalem, and Mount Zion.

Friend, Mount Zion will be redeemed by the spirit of judgment, and the spirit of burning. Great Tribulation is coming to the Holy Land before it can be made holy. That same spirit of Judgment and burning must come upon you before you will repent, and come to Jesus for forgiveness of your sin. It is through great tribulation that any of us come to be saved. I have no idea what God may be putting you through this very day, but I do know that Christ is the perfect refuge. I know His desire is to gather us together under His protective wings. Oh friend, won't you come to this loving savior who chastens with purposes of love. Won't you come to this Christ of the Bible?

Matthew 23:37

37 O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, thou that killest the prophets, and stonest them which are sent unto thee, how often would I have gathered thy children together, even as a hen gathereth her chickens under her wings, and ye would not!

3 And it shall come to pass, that he that is left in Zion, and he that remaineth in Jerusalem, shall be called holy, even every one that is written among the living in Jerusalem:

4 When the Lord shall have washed away the filth of the daughters of Zion, and shall have purged the blood of Jerusalem from the midst thereof by the spirit of judgment, and by the spirit of burning.

5 And the Lord will create upon every dwelling place of mount Zion, and upon her assemblies, a cloud and smoke by day, and the shining of a flaming fire by night: for upon all the glory shall be a defence.

6 And there shall be a tabernacle for a shadow in the daytime from the heat, and for a place of refuge, and for a covert from storm and from rain.

Week of Celebrations in Jerusalem

by Hillel Fendel

(IsraelNN.com) Israel and world Jewry celebrate the 40th anniversary of Jerusalem's unification in the Six Day War this week. The European Union plans to boycott.Though Jerusalem Day is celebrated on the 28th day of the Jewish month of Iyar, which falls this year on Wednesday, May 16, the celebrations will take place all week.  The government's weekly Cabinet session today (Sunday) will be largely dedicated to Jerusalem, as will a special Knesset session tomorrow, which will be followed by a musical festival featuring Avihu Medina, Shuli Natan and others.

 

The walls of the Old City will be lit up in a unique manner, as will the streets, overpasses and central sites.  

 

On Tuesday evening, some 10,000 people are expected to take part in a farmers' parade, which will feature exhibits, floats, tractors, bands, dancers and even acrobats.

 

Also Tuesday evening, beginning at 7 PM, actors from the Jerusalem street theater "Virtuoso" will enact scenes from the period of the establishment of the State.  Interspersed with their acts will be circus tricks of various kinds, musicians, drummers' circles, dancers and field games.  A giant park festival will conclude the evening.

 

Asked about the lack of religious-oriented municipal festivities, Deputy Mayor Yehoshua Pollack told Arutz-7, "the religious public celebrates in the syngagogues and Torah study halls."

 

Traditional Merkaz HaRav Kook Celebration
On Tuesday night, the central religious-thanksgiving celebration will be held in Yeshivat Merkaz HaRav Kook in the Kiryat Moshe neighborhood. Leading politicians such as the Prime Minister often participated, but of late, secular politicians have not been invited.  It is not yet clear what the plans are for this year.

 

On Wednesday, thousands of youngsters and others will march in the now-traditional Rikudgalim (Flag Dance) March, from downtown Jerusalem to the Western Wall. Roads in the capital will be closed as the marchers advance towards the Old City. In addition, a marathon of musicians in various locations and short Maaleh Film School movies will occupy much of Wednesday.  Admission will be free to the Israel Museum, the Science Museum and other sites.

 

On Wednesday night, a main event featuring the Paratroopers Brigade that liberated the Old City will be held at Sultan's Pool.  Thursday will see a "Tour de Jerusalem" bicycle event, as well as an afternoon of "cycling" at Kibbutz Ramat Rachel in the southern part of the city.

 

Putting a slight damper on the festivities, even if not unexpected, is the European Union's boycott. German's Ambassador to Israel has informed the Knesset that the European Union plans to boycott all Jerusalem Day celebrations, including the special Knesset session.  He explained that the EU cannot take part in an event that implies recognition of the current borders of Jerusalem.

 

Despite this, some 20 ambassadors from around the world have said that they will take part, and some EU ambassadors have hinted that they might participate as well

 

 

It is Jerusalem Day! 40 years of inaction are about to be celebrated. The Jews have done nothing about the Temple! The greatest blessing ever brought to the earth since the first coming of the LORD Jesus Christ has been turned into a curse! The EU is united telling the God of the Bible they categorically oppose a Jewish Jerusalem. They are boycotting the celebrations. Guess what our Evangelical White House is saying to the Great God of the Bible on this same issue? You got it! We are joining the EU in the boycott of the 40th anniversary of the unification of the city of Jerusalem under the Jewish flag. We are not boycotting Jewish inaction in obeying God to build His house, but rather that we are recognizing that the city according to the Road Map plan must be mostly given away to the Islamic barbarians. Our Evangelical White House does not want the LORD Jesus Christ to return during our generation. I suppose it might be ok at some far distant date, but not now! The Road Map designed by the atheistic Russians, and supported by the atheistic Europeans along with our Evangelical White House is purposed to stop the imamate return of the LORD Jesus Christ. They would rather have the barbaric god of the Arabs come to Jerusalem. They are in process of giving most of the now Jewish city to the barbarians as an eternal gift. Oh what a blasphemous plan is this Road Map!

The Jews themselves have nothing to celebrate. An entire generation (this generation) is now guilty of disobedience! God can now bring down Great Tribulation upon the Jews of Israel for their sin. They are without excuse! Just as the wrath of God abides on all who through inaction do not come to Christ in this present dispensation so also do the Jews of today find themselves abiding under the same wrath for not setting the foundation of the next dispensation. Inaction in the light of the clear teaching of the Bible is a a terrible sin that condemns men to an eternal hell.

John 3:16-19

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.

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.

KJV

This is the condemnation! Any who do not come to Christ in this our present dispensation are condemned already. God has made it very clear in the Bible. Men are without excuse. The first coming of the LORD Jesus Christ is not a secret. All was done in the light of history. Jesus Christ is coming again to the Holy Land, Jerusalem, and Mount Zion. He is coming with judgment as the LORD of hosts. He is coming to establish His Kingdom here on earth. Jesus is coming as the King of Glory. The Road Map, and all those sinners who support it shall be confounded, ashamed, and destroyed in the light of His glory.

Isaiah 24:21-23

21 And it shall come to pass in that day, that the Lord shall punish the host of the high ones that are on high, and the kings of the earth upon the earth.

22 And they shall be gathered together, as prisoners are gathered in the pit, and shall be shut up in the prison, and after many days shall they be visited.

23 Then the moon shall be confounded, and the sun ashamed, when the Lord of hosts shall reign in mount Zion, and in Jerusalem, and before his ancients gloriously.

KJV

Friend, are you guilty of inaction? Have you never come to the LORD Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sin? Are you guilty of  making light His blood shed for you at Calvary? Such sin condemns you already. Won't you respond to the call of Christ, and come to Him. He loves you, and wants to change your heart. His desire is to wash away all your sin, and make you fit for a perfect eternity of sinless perfection. Won't you come?

Matthew 11:28-30

28 Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.

29 Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.

30 For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.

KJV

Psalms 101:1-3

101 I will sing of mercy and judgment: unto thee, O Lord, will I sing.

2 I will behave myself wisely in a perfect way. O when wilt thou come unto me? I will walk within my house with a perfect heart.

3 I will set no wicked thing before mine eyes: I hate the work of them that turn aside; it shall not cleave to me.

The LORD Jesus Christ has come as the Psalmist pleaded! It is now up to you to come to Him.

Peretz Makes No Decision to Defend the South

by Hana Levi Julian

(IsraelNN.com) Defense Minister Amir Peretz has not decided what to do about Gaza – other than talk. Neither has anyone else in the government, other than those who are directly involved with defending Israeli citizens against the Palestinian Authority terrorists firing the rockets.

Mr. Peretz told reporters Monday morning there is a possibility the IDF might have to stage a ground offensive in Gaza in order to reduce Kassam rocket attacks on southern Israel.

The defense minister emphasized, however, that any such action must be examined carefully in order to assess the fallout that might result. Mr. Peretz did not request authorization for a ground incursion into Gaza at the Sunday morning cabinet meeting, despite the fact that three rockets had been fired by the time the cabinet meeting had convened. The IDF did advise just that at a meeting of the security cabinet later in the day, but the advice was ignored.

Nonetheless, the defense minister claimed in an interview with Channel 10 TV news Sunday evening that Israel’s response to the constant rocket fire on western Negev communities would be decisive.

“We need to act,” he declared. “We need to target the people who are causing the escalation. What we received today was more freedom to act.”

Mr. Peretz’s remarks came after a lukewarm approval by the security cabinet to broaden IDF operations in Gaza, without deciding on a specific plan.

Top officers from the General Security Service (Shin Bet), IDF and Foreign Ministry each offered their assessments of the situation in Gaza and recommendations for protection of the Israeli communities facing the border. The IDF bluntly advised the cabinet to allow a ground incursion to stem the constant rocket fire.

But after hearing four hours of presentations by the security establishment, the cabinet put off deciding on any specific action. Any so-called “broad” response to the rocket fire will still require prior authorization from Prime Minister Ehud Olmert, or the defense minister.

This leaves open the possibility that Israel might continue its “hands off” policy which stops IDF troops from shooting terrorists unless they are caught in the act of launching the rockets or leaving the scene of a launch.

“The moment we decide on harsh action,” Defense Minister Peretz assured the viewers, “it will be a decisive action.”


Key PA Minister Quits, Violence Continues

(IsraelNN.com) Palestinian Authority (PA) Interior Minister Hani al-Qawasmeh, who was appointed to oversee unification of rival terrorist militias, resigned Monday as terrorists continued gun battles.

"He asked for more authority which was not granted. He was not informed about the deployment last week and that's why he resigned," Hamas spokesman Ghazi Hamad said. Al-Qawasmeh had resigned three weeks ago but later agreed to continue in his position.

Gun battles in Gaza City are continuing at this hour, and the minister's resignation prompted concern that the PA may collapse.


 

 

 

The festivities surrounding the 40th anniversary of Jerusalem Reunification Day are hollow with this secular liberal government of Olmert and Peretz. The disaster of the Lebanon War has produced a do nothing mentality that has given the Islamic barbarians the upper hand. They fire their rockets from Gaza occupied territory with immunity. Today, the Islamic barbarians are busy murdering each other, but tomorrow they will be back to murdering Jews. How sad that the world is intent on giving these barbarians most of the Holy Land, Most of Jerusalem, and all of the Temple Mount from where to carry on their brutality. These Islamic barbarians hold back nothing. They have boldly turned the occupied land of the Gaza into a rocket launching site. This was not the case when the Jews controlled the Gaza Strip. The Europeans rather then being critical of what they call Jewish occupation should acknowledge that things only got worse when the  Jews withdrew. What is needed if the world will not encourage the Jews to keep these Islamic barbarians at bay is for the UN to step in, and give the Gaza the same type of stability that the Israeli Defense Force had done before the withdrawal. The world wants to stick with the Gaza as being a Jewish problem rather then admitting the truth that these barbarians are going to kill no matter who tries to keep them under control. This is an Islamic barbarian problem that can only be solved by iron rod rule. The Olmert government is clearly demonstrating that they have no stomach for keeping the barbarians under control. The United Nations never had the stomach for such responsibility, and now the American Democrats under Pelosi are pushing the US to withdraw from Iraq as Israel withdrew from the Gaza. A failed plan that only produces even more brutality on the part of the Islamic barbarians.

Jerusalem has become the focal point as to who will lead this generation, and what kind of a world our future has in store. The liberal politicians and the weak kneed conservatives of this world are demanding the Road Map that would give most of this Holy City to the Islamic Barbarians. All the evidence points to Jerusalem then becoming another launching base for terrorism from the barbarians just like the Gaza. The city which just 40 years ago was freed from Islamic law that forbid, or severely restricted all other religions will go back to the former dark ages. The city which is now relatively free of murder, and safe for tourists will become a killing field for the Islamic barbarians as has happened in the Gaza. This is the reality of the Road Map.

The God of the Bible who authored this miraculous Third Exodus taking place in this our generation is not going to allow His Holy City to revert back to the filth of the past. God is in action, and He will not go backwards. An entire generation of Jews have refused to build God's House since that became the reality after the 1967 War. It is this generation of the Olmert's and the Peretz's that must now answer for their inaction. They made a conscience decision to do nothing. They have refused to consider their ways. Now they will see the consequences!

Haggai 1:2-5

2 Thus speaketh the Lord of hosts, saying, This people say, The time is not come, the time that the Lord's house should be built.

3 Then came the word of the Lord by Haggai the prophet, saying,

4 Is it time for you, O ye, to dwell in your cieled houses, and this house lie waste?

5 Now therefore thus saith the Lord of hosts; Consider your ways.

KJV

The Jews of the miraculous Second Exodus responded when the prophet Haggai called them to be responsible to the purpose of God in their day. I watch with anticipation for God to raise up similar prophets like Haggai and Zachariah calling the Jews of this generation into action.

Zechariah 1:3-4

3 Therefore say thou unto them, Thus saith the Lord of hosts; Turn ye unto me, saith the Lord of hosts, and I will turn unto you, saith the Lord of hosts.

4 Be ye not as your fathers, unto whom the former prophets have cried, saying, Thus saith the Lord of hosts; Turn ye now from your evil ways, and from your evil doings: but they did not hear, nor hearken unto me, saith the Lord.

KJV

Zechariah 1:14-16

14 So the angel that communed with me said unto me, Cry thou, saying, Thus saith the Lord of hosts; I am jealous for Jerusalem and for Zion with a great jealousy.

15 And I am very sore displeased with the heathen that are at ease: for I was but a little displeased, and they helped forward the affliction.

16 Therefore thus saith the Lord; I am returned to Jerusalem with mercies: my house shall be built in it, saith the Lord of hosts, and a line shall be stretched forth upon Jerusalem.

KJV

Just as God was jealous for Jerusalem and Zion during the Second Exodus, so it is also true in this Third Exodus. Just as God said to Zechariah about Jerusalem and Zion that My House shall be built in it, so also it is true today! The same LORD of hosts who spoke threw the prophets Haggai and Zechariah is again speaking today! He is coming again as the King of Glory! He is coming to establish His Kingdom in the Holy Land, at Jerusalem, and on Mount Zion!

Psalms 24:6-10

6 This is the generation of them that seek him, that seek thy face, O Jacob. Selah.

7 Lift up your heads, O ye gates; and be ye lift up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in.

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.

KJV 

Friend, are you ready to listen to the soon coming LORD of hosts? The Bible tells us He is the soon coming King of Glory. He is the returning LORD Jesus Christ. He is the King of the Jews. His message to you is to come to Him for salvation. Come unto Him for forgiveness of sin, and perfect redemption. Won't you come?

John 7:37-38

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.

Palestinian moms becoming martyrs


TIME reports that since 2002, 88 Palestinian women have attempted suicide bombings, with eight of those being "successful" attacks. Though there were just six suicide attacks against Israelis in 2006, two were carried out by women. "There's a growing involvement of Palestinian women in terrorism, everything from scouting targets and smuggling guns and explosives to becoming suicide bombers," said Anat Berko, an Israeli counterterrorism expert at the International Policy Institute for Counter-Terrorism. Some women suicide bombers believe that in paradise they will become queens, while others are told by recruiters that they will become the fairest of the 72 virgins that await each jihad warrior.

Muslim Religious Ban on Leaving Israel

by Hillel Fendel

(IsraelNN.com) Yet another Islamic religious ruling forbidding Moslems from leaving the Holy Land has been issued, this time from the Mufti of Jerusalem and Palestine.

Recently, the Hamas-affiliated Association of Religious Sages of Palestine publicized its ruling forbidding emigration from the lands of the Palestinian Authority. The Mufti of Jerusalem has now joined in with his own ban, released on Monday, May 14.

The rulings are an indication of the great fear in the Arab world that young people from the Palestinian Authority are increasingly seeking their fortunes abroad.

The latest ruling, entitled, "No permission to emigrate from the land of Palestine," reads as follows:

"There is much talk these days in our land of Palestine about emigration, and especially among the young, and this because of the difficult security and economic situation, and out of a desire to find a living in other lands. Expression of this can be found in the rush to the gates of the embassies and consulates of the Western nations with requests for visas in order to reside permanently in those countries...

"Based on [the ruling of the prophet Muhammed and his friends], emigration from the blessed lands to live permanently in other countries is not permitted in terms of religious law. The people living in these areas must remain in their places of residence, and not leave them to infiltrators and conquerors, and they will thus perform an act of honor, and will be a support for the Al-Aqsa mosque... and will merit the good tiding of the prophet...

"Regarding temporary travel to other lands for the purpose of study and work, this is permitted as long as there is a determination to return and live in the blessed lands after the stage of study and work."

Tens of Thousands
PA officials reported last November that in the preceding four months, foreign and Arab diplomats had authorized the entry of 10,000 PA residents to their countries, and that another 45,000 emigration requests were under similar consideration. Similar statements were made in October.

 

 
 

 

The Bible tells us that truth is extremely important. One thing that we Christians must acknowledge is that Islam is at war with us. This is the truth! Islam is a dirty religion. Anything goes! They speak with their lips of high moral standards while in practice they send out their woman and children to fight their battles. Hate is the center root involved with the worship of Allah. That hate has reached a fevered pitch in this present generation. The Holy Land, Jerusalem, and the Temple Mount is the focus of Islam in this present war. Barbarism is the method Islam uses to fight. The call to wipe Israel off the map resonates with highest acclaim throughout the Islamic world. The 9/11 sneak attack on the American civilian population  for supporting the Jews is the highest act of praise for Allah this generation of Islam can give to their god. Islam has carefully nurtured this generation on hate. They have raised a generation of barbarians with seared consciences capable of committing the worst atrocities ever conceived by the depraved nature of men. The goal is to bring in the Islamic golden age where Islamic Law becomes the law of planet earth. All Islam knows Allah demands a gift before he will exalt the mullahs of today into such heights of power. The gift as clearly described in the Koran is the Jews. Allah wants all the Jews murdered. It is the Holy Land, and the Jews of the Holy Land where all the focus of Islamic barbarism is now focused.

The theology of Islam is as changeable as the wind. Today, any Moslem who dare sell land to a Jew is given the death penalty. A realtor is sitting in a Jordanian jail awaiting implementation of just such a theological decree for selling a piece of property he owned in Hebron, the city where father Abraham is buried, to a Jew. Today, the latest decree forbids any Moslem from leavening the Holy Land! I would assume the same death penalty will be enacted against any who would defy Allah on this point. Islam wants the Holy Land, and will barbarically murder any who will oppose this theology both from within and without.

Islam wants to rule the world. They want to rule via the law of the barbarian. The God of the Bible has told us that He is the creator of everything including this world. Sin broke the relationship that the Holy God of the Bible had with men, but it is only temporary. Many have come over the millennium to try to usurp the authority of this Great God of the Bible. They know the revelation, and promises of this God have come almost exclusively through the Jews. This is why Hitler singled out the Jews for extermination, and why this present generation of Islam has the same hateful desire. The truth is that God is going to restore His holy and pure relationship with men through His only begotten Son the LORD Jesus Christ. The perverted sexual paradise of Islam is a lie! Purity, righteousness, holiness is where God is going lead this planet when Christ returns to the Holy Land, Jerusalem, and Mount Zion as the King of Glory. Islam will never degrade the honor of woman again! Islam will never sacrifice their children to Allah again! Islam is doomed to the dung hill of all other false religions that would have usurped the power of God.

Friend, Christ offered the only perfect sacrifice for sin. Mohamed offered the world nothing more then another god of the barbarians. It is only in Christ that restoration is possible. It is only in Christ that redemption can be gained. It is only for those who come to Him for the forgiveness of sin who find the redemption of which the Bible speaks. Dear friend, won't you come to this wondrous Christ of the Bible?

Sderot on High Alert; Nine Kassam Rockets Fired Today

by Hana Levi Julian and Hillel Fendel

(IsraelNN.com) The western Negev city of Sderot is on high alert, school is cancelled and residents are monitoring news reports after a night of terror.

It was reported at noon that hundreds of Sderot residents - pregnant and nursing women, and Ethiopian immigrants whose homes are not reinforced - are being evacuated from the city.  Though buses are in short supply because of the Jerusalem Day celebrations, Russian-Israeli business tycoon Arkadi Gaydamak sent eight buses to Sderot to help out in the evacuation.  The residents are being taken to Kibbutz Tzbua near Jerusalem.

Israelis who managed to get to sleep in the western Negev Tuesday night were awakened by the sounds of rocket explosions on Wednesday morning. Dozens of civilians were wounded in Sderot and nearby communities in the course of the night. Officials have placed the community on high alert. School was cancelled for the day, and residents were told to monitor news reports for breaking security developments.

By midday Wednesday, Arabs in northern Gaza had fired nine rockets at Israel.  One of the Kassam rockets fell short and landed in Gaza.

One of the early-morning missiles scored a direct hit on the house next door to the Sderot home of Defense Minister Amir Peretz. A second one landed in the basketball court of a kibbutz near Ashkelon, while the rest landed in open areas near Sderot and the coastal city. No injuries were reported in these attacks, though a fire resulted from one.

Terrorists fired over 21 rockets at Sderot and nearby communities on Tuesday, with more than a dozen fired Tuesday night. At least 26 Israelis were wounded in the attacks and six of the victims remained hospitalized at Barzilai Hospital in Ashkelon Wednesday morning. One of the victims, a woman who was critically injured when a rocket slammed into her home, is now listed in fair condition, as is her son who was with her when the house was hit. Four others, including a pregnant woman, are listed in good condition. Most of the others were treated for shock and trauma reactions, and were released Tuesday evening.

Israel Air force helicopters were ordered to northern Gaza where they responded to the rocket attacks by firing on empty fields. The fire, Peretz explained, is designed to prevent terrorists from using the fields to launch rockets. This policy of launching counter fire into the Gaza sands has long been practiced by the IDF, but, as noted by many experts, has not been proven effective.

No IDF ground operations have been approved, despite the onslaught of rockets and mortar shells fired at Israeli communities. In the emergency meeting held by the defense minister Tuesday night, however, it was decided to allow the IDF to resume targeted assassinations and other unspecified military operations. Prime Minister Ehud Olmert will hold a security consultation Wednesday afternoon.

The edge of Sderot is located less than a kilometer from the northern Gaza town of Beit Hanoun, making it an easy, inviting target for the attackers to launch the cheap, easily-made Kassams. Sderot is not alone in its vulnerability, however; the range of the Kassams has been vastly improved in several newer models of the rocket, not to mention the much longer range of Katyusha rockets recently acquired by Gaza terrorists.

Northern Israel was peppered with Katyusha fire in the last summer’s Second Lebanon War with Iranian-backed Hizbullah terrorists – who have since made a concerted effort to share their largesse with Hamas terrorists on the southern front.

Goading Israeli Incursion Might End Internal Warfare
Political analysts said Tuesday that the large-scale attack on Israel is a Hamas attempt to distract Gaza residents from the internal violence that is wracking the Palestinian Authority there.

Much of the bloodshed is coming from Hamas, which came into power and has ruled the PA government since the beginning of last year. At least six Gaza residents were killed early Wednesday when Hamas terrorists attacked the house of a senior Fatah official, shooting his guards and burning the building. In the past three days at least 23 Arabs, mostly terror gang members, have been killed.

Gaza terrorists also fired on Egyptian mediators who were in the area trying to negotiate an end to the militia war. No one was injured in the sniper fire on the delegation.

In a bid to swing the focus of the attacks back to Israel, the Hamas terror organization has posted a statement on its website claiming, "These operations are part of the 'Faithfulness of the Free' campaign against the occupation assault on the Gaza Strip and the continued targeting of innocent Palestinian civilians and their installations in the West Bank."  The reference to an assault on Gaza is connected with the deaths of nine terrorists who were killed during the latest round of internecine warfare now taking place in the PA-controlled areas.

Defense Minister Peretz told reporters Wednesday morning while observing an IDF military exercise in the north, "Israel has no intention of intervening with the internal clashes in Gaza, but we will not tolerate having these clashes impact the security of Israeli residents; these events will reap a suitable response."

 

 

 

The war with Islam is reaching a new low point. The present Olmert liberal secular Israeli government is being put to the defeatist test. Islam wants to know how far they can go once the political hands of their enemies are tied. They know the political hands of the United States are now tied with the recent Democratic victory over Congress. They also know what happens in Israel will directly effect Islamic policy throughout the world. The time to push is now at hand. Islam knows they can't fight the might of the West, but they can have victory over the political will of the West. The kidnapping of Israeli soldiers brought about the Israeli defeat in the Second Lebanon War because they are still unaccounted, and Islam is now looking to see if the United States learned the same lesson in Iran as the Jews have learned in Israel. The Israeli prisoners as well as the Americans disappeared into the evil world of Islam probably never to be heard from again. Silence is the best tool Islam has. They love to watch us squirm over what our own imaginations can produce. They love to hint that the prisoners live knowing this kind of torture is the most effective. Islam is now going on the offensive knowing the Israeli response is going to be muted. I suspect the same is going to be true in Iraq. The will to hit them so hard they never dare again kidnap is not there. Politics now rule the battlefield, and this plays right into the hands of Islam.

I would only warn Islam of the recent demise of the Nazis. Hitler bragged of a thousand year reign of his Nazi barbarians, but it was only a few short years before they were all in the grave. The downfall came from the nazi obsession with the final solution to what they called the Jewish problem. Islam is at it's bragging height saying they will wipe the Jews off the map. The political hands of the West are as tied as they were when the peacenik Chamberlain waved the agreement he made with Hitler into the faces of the world. Hitler proved the worth of his word by invading Poland. Islam has already proved the worth of their word with lie after lie. The Bible says Islam is not going to stop until they invade the Holy Land. God is not going to use the allies this time. God Himself is going to destroy Islam in one quick move. World War III will never have the time to develop because the God of the Bible will take such offence to Islam that He will wipe them off the face of the earth. Islam will be relegated to the dung heap of history where all other false religions have gone before, and where all religions will eventually end. Only the Word will stand firm throughout all eternity, but the religions made by man whether through the abuse of the Bible or not will end! The Bible is not a religious book. It is the revelation of the God of all creation that provision has been made whereby sinners can be saved. The Word is the LORD Jesus Christ! The Bible is the LORD Jesus Christ. It is not religion. It is a person! Friend, have you come to this person for the forgiveness of your sin? Friend, won't you come to the light?

 

 

John 1:1-5

1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

2 The same was in the beginning with God.

3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.

4 In him was life; and the life was the light of men.

5 And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.

'Doctors Without Borders' Gave Terrorist Entry Pass to Israel

by Ezra HaLev

(IsraelNN.com) An Arab man from Gaza was given a VIP pass by Doctors Without Borders, which he used to plan assassinations of Prime Minister Olmert, Minister Lieberman and David Be’eri.

The 25-year-old PA Arab from Dir El Balah in Gaza, Masab Bashir, was charged in a Jerusalem Court Thursday. He has been employed by Docters Without Borders for at least five years and received a pass to travel freely to the Jerusalem region in his capacity as a doctor for the organization.

Doctors Without Borders are recognized by the UN as a humanitarian group and are granted free passage by the Israeli government through checkpoints and closed military areas. They feature large decals on their vehicles with a picture of a crossed out assault rifle – to indicate they are non-combatants.

Another man, an Israeli Arab, was also arrested for assisting Bashir. A third man's identity has not been released by the Shabak (General Security Service).

Bashir was arrested three weeks ago and confessed to collecting intelligence information for the PFLP terror group with the goal of killing Prime Minister Ehud Olmert, Strategic Affairs Minister Avigdor Lieberman and David Be’eri. Be'eri heads the Elad organization which develops Ir David, the Jewish archaeological gardens in the Silwan region below Jerusalem’s Old City.

The terrorist met with PFLP handlers in September 2006, after which he received combat and arms training. He said he eventually concluded that security was too tight around the government officials and in December, 2006 decided to instead murder David Be’eri, a target because of his development of Jewish neighborhoods in eastern Jerusalem. In January 2007, with a pass from Doctors Without Borders, Bashir targeted Be’eri and began gathering intelligence information on his daily routine. He returned in February and March – and was arrested on his latest trip, on April 19.

On the web site of Doctors Without Borders, the organization’s stated goals in the PA-assigned areas are to: “…provide psychological and medical care and social assistance to families affected by the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.” Last year, it condemned the decision of several governments to cut funding to the Hamas-led PA and channel it to humanitarian organizations instead.

Doctors Without Borders says it had no idea that Bashir was engaging in such activities.

 

 

The Islamic barbarians continue to stoop to new lows using one of the most humane organizations working today so they can murder Jews. Doctors Without Boarders purposely keeps free from politics so they can give humanitarian aid to the victims of abusive governments without repercussion. Most governments recognize the good intent of these volunteer doctors, and give them the respect they are due. That is most governments except those controlled by the Islamic barbarians. These filthy religionists who send their woman and children out to fight their battles as suicide bombers have no interest in humanity. Hate filled dirty fighting is the way of the barbarian, and Allah the god of the barbarians encourages their depravity. These are the filthy moral standards of this generation of Islam. They have no interest in the suffering of their woman and children. The compassionate hand of those who would help is only used to prove they can be even more barbaric then they have already been. These Islamic people are beyond repentance. They are seared in conscience to only murder. Everything that enters their world is twisted into an object that is used for hate. They refuse the hand of mercy!

Ezekiel 39 is the Biblical answer to today's Islam. The God of the Bible is going to humiliate them by sacrificing them to the lowest forms of scavenger beasts on the planet. A fitting end to a people who sold their souls to the devil god Allah. Islamic leaders sacrificed their own woman and children to Allah, and soon the God of the Bible is going to sacrifice them to the filthy beasts of the field, and scavenging fowl of the air. Only animals able to handle the stench of rotted carcass will feast at the supper God has planed for Islam. A filthy end to a filthy religion is what we find in Ezekiel 39.

Ezekiel 39:17

17 And, thou son of man, thus saith the Lord God; Speak unto every feathered fowl, and to every beast of the field, Assemble yourselves, and come; gather yourselves on every side to my sacrifice that I do sacrifice for you, even a great sacrifice upon the mountains of Israel, that ye may eat flesh, and drink blood.

KJV

 

Friend, what is your end going to be like? What happens when the books of your life are opened before this perfectly Holy God of the Bible? What evaluation will His perfect righteousness reach before the eternal sentence is cast? You will stand alone dear friend. No other people will be used for a comparison. Just you, and your creator. Just you, and the perfectly Holy God of the Bible who loved you so much He sent His only begotten Son to die as a perfect atonement for sin so that your sins could be washed away. Will your life be revealed as dishonorable? Will the filth of your sin condemn you before the spotless Holiness of this God of the Bible? Friend, there is only one refuge, and that is the LORD Jesus Christ. It was not religion that shed perfect soul cleansing blood on Calvary. It was the Christ of the Bible. Religion can't save, but Jesus Christ can. Won't you come to Him right now for salvation? Won't you allow Him to write your name in the book of life?

 

Revelation 20:12-15

12 And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works.

13 And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works.

14 And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death.

15 And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.

Jerusalem Day: Remembering the Critical Ammunition Hill Battle

by Hillel Fendel

(IsraelNN.com) Yaki Haimovitch, a simple private who received a medal in the Six Day War, tells how he ended up in the front of the line, leading his comrades to victory.

One of the bloodiest and most important battles of the 1967 war was fought just across the street from the modern Jerusalem neighborhood of Ramat Eshkol, on what is now known as Ammunition Hill (Givat HaTachmoshet).

A very large Jordanian position, chock-full of enemy troops, ammunition, fortified bunkers and winding trenches, stood on the hill northwest of the Old City, blocking the IDF's way. It also prevented access to Mount Scopus and the Jerusalem-Ramallah road. The task of capturing the position was assigned to the Paratroopers Brigade, and the battle took place on the night of June 6, 1967.

Speaking with Arutz-7's Shimon Cohen, Yaki recounts yet again the details of the battle:

"I was just a simple soldier, 21 years old, in Platoon 2 of Company C in Regiment 66 - just a soldier who did what they told me, nothing more, and suddenly I find myself in the thick of the fire... At 10 PM, we received our first briefing, and we saw that there was no intelligence, nothing was known about this bunker. They showed us a tiny aerial photo in which we saw two tunnels or trenches, but we were warned that there were others. That was the whole thing. We also saw three tiny structures - but it turned out that these were very large buildings, and one of them was the Jordanians' living quarters... That's how we set out for the battle.

"For almost an hour, our tanks and mortars fired at the Police School nearby, but it turned out that the Jordanian soldiers had run away before we even got there. But on the hill, we found two units facing us - one of professional soldiers, and the other of younger reinforcements."

The Ammunition Hill website states that the Israeli paratroopers had expected a Jordanian platoon (some 50 soldiers) to be defending the site, but that the number had actually swelled to company proportions (some 120 troops).

"During the course of the night," Yaki continued, "Regiment 66 hid out in the old buildings of the Pagi neighborhood in Jerusalem [located between today's Ramat Eshkol and Sanhedria]. We waited during the night while our sappers cleared the way for us... Company D broke through the fence, and snipers started shooting at us. We returned fire, and they were quieted. But they kept on firing at us - though not yet with any accuracy."

Yaki's company was assigned to circle around from the west - a decision that proved to be strategically correct. A Jordanian officer with whom the Israelis met several years later told them that the fact that the Israelis attacked from the west was what confused the Jordanians holding out on the hill. Yeki's platoon walked in single-file towards the target, with the sounds of non-stop shooting and explosions in the background.

"I was at the end of the line," he said. "Yoram Elyashiv, the platoon commander, led us coolly and carefully, without automatic fire. We shot only when we identified an enemy, and I even thought for a moment that I might end up not firing the whole day.

"But at this point everything changed. Yoram asked for a bazooka. I ran from the back of the line with the bazooka, and gave it to him - and I then remained with him as we walked the next few meters - until he was hit by Jordanian fire. We yelled out, 'He was hit, he was hit!' and within a moment, all the confidence that Yoram had given us dissipated.  Until then we had followed him with confidence and trust in his every move, and suddenly I find myself at the head of the line.

"I was afraid that the Jordanians, running from one side to the other, might split us in two, identify us and shoot at us like sitting ducks. I said to myself that we had no choice but to go on. The guys told me later that I yelled out 'After me!' but [smiling] I don't remember doing that."

Yaki then continued leading the platoon, when Jordanian reinforcements then arrived: "They shot without a break. I was sure I would be able to advance no more than 50 meters [55 yards] before I would get hit as well. But miraculously, I was able to advance. I'm not defined as religious, but I have no other explanation as to how I remained alive. I felt that someone was protecting me from above. Afterwards, I had a dream that it was my grandfather, who was a big rabbi..."

"The Jordanians - very professional, well-trained and brave - were shooting at us from every direction. To restore my confidence, I shot two bullets that brought me back to reality.  But from then on, I shot very sparingly, afraid that my bullets would run out... We advanced slowly, shooting into every corner and every bunker in the trench, to see if there was any response; if not, we continued... Don't forget that I was walking without knowing the area, with no map, just intuition. At one point, there was a fork where I was supposed to turn left, but for some reason, maybe because of the direction of the shooting, I turned right - and it turned out to be the correct move...

"Another move that turned out to be right was when I chose the better-lit tunnels, instead of the darker ones... In one of the encounters, I wounded a Jordanian who turned out to be the company commander... We kept on going, with them shooting at us; at one point I called a machine-gunner and he fired a shell so that we could go on...

"Suddenly I see a black opening in front of me. I fired one bullet, and that was my last one. As per our training for such situations, the soldiers in back of me passed me and advanced in the tunnel. I went into a side bunker to find bullets or Jordanian grenades. I found a box of ammunition, and while I was opening it, a wounded soldier came to me. I started treating him, while outside I hear yells and shooting the whole time. The wounded soldier is yelling, 'They're killing us all there. We can't go on.' I found a machine gun, but it didn't fire, even though the barrel was hot. I realized that the Jordanian machine-gunner acted professionally and made sure to take out one of the parts of the gun before leaving so that we wouldn't be able to use it..."

"I was sure I was left alone. I saw two Jordanians who looked dead. I approached them, and one of them got up towards me with his gun cocked; I shot him and he fell dead. At that second, they started shooting at me from the black opening near me, grenades and bullets non-stop. I was afraid it might be our own guys shooting at me, and I was afraid to shoot at them. I yelled out the password - and then suddenly the picture became clear: It was the large bunker that we were looking for, covered with concrete. The thick dust coming out of it hid the opening, but five Jordanian soldiers were shooting at me non-stop, apparently feeling they had nothing to lose. I couldn’t get close.

"At that second, the company commander Dudik saw me. He sent over a soldier so that I could explain to him what was going on. I tried to yell that this was the large bunker we were looking for, but he couldn't hear me because of the noise of the shooting. Yehuda Kandel also got there. I went inside to get grenades and suddenly I see a Jordanian soldier standing over me. We aimed our guns at each other, but he missed; I shot and he fell.

"On the other side of the entrance to the bunker I saw David Shalom... and then a few seconds later a bazooka-shooter from another company joined us. He fired, but the bazooka just scratched the wall. Another few seconds passed, and another soldier came - he looked like a private, but it turned out later he was an officer. He asked me what to do. I asked him if he had explosives. He said no, but if we needed, he would get some. He went back, with me covering him, ready to fire. He returned with sacks of explosives. I threw them to Yehuda, and [whenever there was a break in the shooting] he placed them near the entrance to the bunker. All this with non-stop shooting going on around us. I also asked him for explosive bricks, and he found me three and a half bricks. I threw these to Yehuda as well, using the same method and yelling the instructions at him, and then we activated the explosives - and we blew up the bunker."

When the smoke cleared, it became clear that the bunker had collapsed atop the Jordanian soldiers inside it. This was the sign to many that the battle was over, and Yaki and his comrades joined up with the soldiers of Company B arriving from the other side.

Yaki received the medal of valor for the calm manner in which he ran the operation to blow up the bunker, but he himself is not convinced that that was the most dramatic part of the battle. "In briefings afterwards, they never really questioned me as to all the details - maybe because I wasn't an officer. I also disappeared afterwards for a year of recovering... But I would have told them that the most dramatic part of the whole story was not necessarily the bunker, but the fact that an inexperienced and unsure private soldier actually led the platoon through the trenches."

Seventy-one Jordanian soldiers and 36 Israelis were killed in the Battle for Ammunition Hill. Today, the site serves as a memorial to all those who fell in battle for Jerusalem in the Six Day War.

 

 

 

Jerusalem fell into Jewish hands on June 6, 1967. All of Judah and Samaria also became Jewish. Most importantly the Temple Mount for the first time in almost 2000 years became Jewish once again. The soldiers who fought the battle take little credit to themselves. They very clearly reveal that it was God who gave them the victory. God did not need the great generals, or government officials. He used the lowly privates to drive the Islamic Jordanians back across the Jordan River, and out of the Promised Land. The God of the Bible is not the God of big time religionists as He is not the God of the big time politicians. The God of the Bible is the God of the meek and lowly. His Kingdom is not prepared for the big shots of this world. It is prepared for the poor privates who find themselves in impossible situations. God reveals His presents to the meek, but it is in the Bible where He reveals salvation.

Matthew 5:3-12

3 Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

4 Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted.

5 Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth.

6 Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled.

7 Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy.

8 Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God.

9 Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.

10 Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness' sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

11 Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake.

12 Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you.

KJV

Friend, there is a reason why the Holy Land is in the news today. The Holy City Jerusalem is the bone of contention. God has brought His stiff-necked people back to the Promised Land to keep His word. It has nothing to do with all the big time politicians. It has everything to do with the promise God made to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. It has everything to do with the compassion God has for the children of Israel even though they are stiff-necked, and unresponsive right now.

Exodus 2:23-25

23 And it came to pass in process of time, that the king of Egypt died: and the children of Israel sighed by reason of the bondage, and they cried, and their cry came up unto God by reason of the bondage.

24 And God heard their groaning, and God remembered his covenant with Abraham, with Isaac, and with Jacob.

25 And God looked upon the children of Israel, and God had respect unto them.

KJV

.The covenant God made with the Patriarchs was that of a Kingdom. A perfect paradise here on earth. A restoration of the Garden of Eden before sin ruined everything God created. Redemption was in the mind of God when He made His promise so long ago. The Redeemer has come, and sinners now know through the Bible that perfect atonement was made for sin. It is now 2000 years later, and next comes the redemption of the Land, and the people of the Land where the Kingdom will be located. Jerusalem is the promised capital where Jesus Christ will establish His throne. The big shots of the past were unable to prevent the resurrection of Christ, and the big shots of today are unable to stop His return. He is coming for the humble who cry unto Him for relief. Oh friend, He has already come for you. It is now you who must come to Him.

Matthew 11:28-30

28 Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.

29 Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.

30 For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.

Hamas Increasing Terror Capabilities; Al Qaeda Joining Fray

by Hana Levi Julian

IsraelNN.com) The Hamas terror organization has been increasing the number and efficiency of attacks on Israel, while engaged in its militia war with rival PA terror faction Fatah. New reports suggest that Hamas' capabilities are improving, particularly with the influence and assistance of Al Qaeda.

IDF Maj.-Gen. Giora Eiland said in an interview with Israel Radio on Friday that the Gaza terrorist group’s military capability and the range of its rockets are improving. He also expressed doubt that Fatah could prevail in the militia war against Hamas for control of the government.

“Gaza is a clear and hostile Hamas state in every sense of the term,” Eiland said. “The Palestinian Authority and [PA Chairman Mahmoud] Abbas are pathetic and irrelevant,” he added.

Al Qaeda’s Fingerprints Increasing in Gaza

A new report indicates that Al Qaeda has begun active efforts to strengthen the Hamas terror organization in the battle for control of the Palestinian Authority.

As the Palestinian Authority (PA) continues to weaken, the Al Qaeda terrorist network has strengthened ties with Hamas, according to a report written by Army reserve Lt. Col. Jonathan HaLevi for the Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs.

Following the expulsion of Jewish residents from the Gaza area and the destruction of their communities, Al Qaeda already had begun to fill the vacuum in security, HaLevi wrote.

Palestinian Authority (PA) Chairman and Fatah leader Mahmoud Abbas last year said, "We have signs of the presence of Al Qaeda in Gaza and the West Bank."

Further evidence of the al Qaeda presence was produced earlier this month when the terrorist group Army of Islam, identified with Al Qaeda, took responsibility for the March kidnapping of British Broadcasting Corp. (BBC) reporter Alan Johnston, whose whereabouts and condition are unknown.

The same group teamed up with two Hamas-sponsored terror groups to carry out last year's abduction of IDF soldier Gilad Shalit in a cross-border attack which killed two other soldiers and wounded a third.

"Even external appearances show Al Qaeda's growing influence as members of its affiliate movements in the Gaza Strip will often wear the same black head covering that was a trademark of the late Al Qaeda leader in Iraq, Abu Musab al-Zarqawi," noted HaLevi.

"All the evidence indicates that rather than challenge Al Qaeda's bid to expand its presence in the Gaza Strip, Hamas prefers to collaborate with these new militant groups," he added.

Fatah May Pay the Price for Al Qaeda Presence

The Fatah faction led by the PA chairman has been warring with Hamas for control of the government for more than a year. Despite numerous efforts by local and international leaders to end the internecine clashes between the two factions, the fight has continued.

Fresh shootouts and kidnappings resumed in Gaza a week ago; two broken ceasefires attempts, 44 dead civilians and terrorists and more than a hundred other wounded have not yet stemmed the flow of blood in the streets.

For its part, Fatah has spent the past year cultivating cozy relations with Jordan and the United States, which pledged millions of dollars and munitions to help shore up the PA Chairman’s personal security force.

Fatah, which is seen by most western nations as a moderate force in the terrorist-led PA government, was promised – and received – thousands of weapons from Jordan in a deal approved by the Olmert government.

Hamas has similarly boosted its weapons cache, by smuggling through elaborate tunnels across the Egyptian border. At the moment, Fatah and Hamas guns are being aimed at each other.  But longer-range weapons have been reserved for use against Israel.

Hamas Receiving Upgraded Weapons and Training

Hamas has worked hard with other groups to develop and refine the Kassam rockets they use in their attacks on the western Negev, focusing especially on improving their aiming capability and range. The short-range Kassam rockets can be pointed in a general direction, but are incapable of pinpoint targeting. Improvements in the past year have created what is considered by weapons experts to have been the final product in the Kassam line, a rocket which they say cannot be refined further.

Intelligence reports indicate that Hamas terrorists this year acquired Russian-made 22 kilometer-range Grad missiles, more versatile and lethal than the primitive, short-range Kassams.

In addition, Hamas operatives have been bolstered by advance terror training programs, financial support and gifts of Katyusha rockets from the Iranian-backed Hizbullah terrorists in Lebanon. Hizbullah used several different Iranian and Syrian-made missiles against Israel in last summer’s Second Lebanon War; most were short and medium-range Katyushas.

According to one military source that requested anonymity, PA terrorists used Katyushas in three attacks within the past year, reaching the outskirts of Ashkelon each time. A number of strategic installations exist in the Mediterranean coastal city, making it an inviting target. Police said Friday they are preparing for the possibility that long-range rockets may be fired at Ashkelon. 

Regardless of who received guns and from where, at the end, a Hamas official commented to a WorldNet Daily reporter, the weapons will eventually all be distributed among the other terrorist groups anyway, and all will ultimately be pointed at Israel. 

Al Qaeda Urged Hamas to Escalate Against Israel

While the two factions continue their renewed militia war, the Hamas organization simultaneously launched an intensive attack against the Jewish State on Tuesday, aiming at communities in the western Negev. Sderot, closest to the border, has taken the brunt of the rocket fire, although other communities have been attacked, including the large coastal city of Ashkelon.

The attacks have come less than a month after a senior member of Al Qaeda called on Hamas to show a little more energy in its war against Israel. In a video that appeared on Al Qaeda’s website, Abu Yaha al Libi asked Hamas, “Where is the revenge? Where are the bombs? Where is the fire?”

The senior Al Qaeda terrorist urged Hamas to step up its attacks. “Your loyalty will be measured only through your commitment to the path of Jihad,” chided al Libi.

 

 

What is happening in Gaza after the withdrawal is what is about to happen in the West Bank should Olmert continue with the Road Map. What has happened in the Gaza with the advancement of Al Qaeda is what will happen in Iraq should the Pelosi Democrats get their way. The end result is Al Qaeda wins! They win because we quit! What happens in the Holy Land is by far more important then what happens in Iraq, but Iraq does play an important roll in end time events. The surprise is that Islam will not be a factor in either the Holy Land or in Iraq in the end times. A far more sinister culture is on the rise that will supplant Islam. An even more filthy false barbaric god then Allah is about to step into the void once the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob destroys all Islamic influence over the Holy Land as described in Ezekiel 39. The wrath of God is coming down on Al Qaeda, and all the rest of the Islamic barbarians far worst then any revengeful feelings we may have over 9/11. The wrath of God will be more connected to the Holy Land, Jerusalem, and Mount Zion then it will New York City. The destruction of Islam will be but a little thing. A forerunner to the greater destruction coming to all the gentile nations at Armageddon. Sinful men are beyond the ability to learn. Their sin causes them  to repeat the past again and again. Like blind men they crawl out of the pit only to walk right back into it. Islam is blind to what God did to the Nazis of the last generation. The failed thousand year reign of the third reich has had no influence on today's Islamic barbarians bent on destroying the Jews. They continue blindly on their evil quest never considering the power of the God of the Bible.

Islam's loss will be the antichrist's gain. The great wealth of Middle East oil now squandered by the opulent princes of Islam will be used by the antichrist to control the economy of the world. Babylon will become the greatest city on the planet from where the antichrist will rule. The antichrist will come out of a 10 nation Western confederacy of which the United States will be joined. He will control 3 of the most powerful confederates, and through them be the leader of the Western world.

Daniel 7:24-25

24 And the ten horns out of this kingdom are ten kings that shall arise: and another shall rise after them; and he shall be diverse from the first, and he shall subdue three kings.

25 And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time.

KJV

This antichrist will come on the scene at the beginning of the Great Tribulation. He will sign a peace treaty with the Jews that will permit them to build Ezekiel's Temple on the Temple Mount. His power will be restrained for the first 3-1/2 years of the Great Tribulation (giving the Jews time to build their Holy Temple), but at the half way point He takes full control. He murders the Two  Witnesses of Revelation chapter 11, and sits on the throne they placed in the Temple for the returning Christ. All the faithful Jews will be forced to flee into the wilderness. The antichrist will see Jerusalem as a competitor against the worldly power complex he will have built in Babylon. He will extend his kingship into the higher position of godhood usurping Jesus Christ far beyond anything Mohamed ever contemplated.

The time for Ezekiel 39 is almost here. The reign of the antichrist will follow in quick succession. Friend, are you ready? The diverse horn is probably already here waiting in the wings for his entrance unto the world scene. The coming elections may be the ones that will lift him into his first position of power. Will you be just that much more fodder for him to use on his rise to the top, or will you stand in his way as a pillar for Christ? The plan of God is to allow the antichrist to rule. God is going to translate out of this world those who will never give in to his evilness. God is going to end the Church Age, and through Great Tribulation convert the Jewish heart to Christ. The Kingdom of heaven is the ultimate end of what God has planed for the Holy Land, Jerusalem, and Mount Zion. What will your end be? Will you be found standing in Christ, or will you be rejected by God? The choice is yours. Won't you come to Christ, and live?

 

Joel 3:12-17

12 Let the heathen be wakened, and come up to the valley of Jehoshaphat: for there will I sit to judge all the heathen round about.

13 Put ye in the sickle, for the harvest is ripe: come, get you down; for the press is full, the fats overflow; for their wickedness is great.

14 Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision: for the day of the Lord is near in the valley of decision.

15 The sun and the moon shall be darkened, and the stars shall withdraw their shining.

16 The Lord also shall roar out of Zion, and utter his voice from Jerusalem; and the heavens and the earth shall shake: but the Lord will be the hope of his people, and the strength of the children of Israel.

17 So shall ye know that I am the Lord your God dwelling in Zion, my holy mountain: then shall Jerusalem be holy, and there shall no strangers pass through her any more.

'Special Situation' Declared in Sderot and Western Negev

by Hillel Fendel

(IsraelNN.com) Defense Minister Amir Peretz, who lives in Sderot, announced a "special home front situation" in Sderot and neighboring towns this morning, in light of the continuing Kassam attacks. The decision, made together with Prime Minister Ehud Olmert, is a signal that the Kassam rocket attacks are expected to continue.

"Regional solutions, not specific local ones, are needed now," a Defense Ministry official explained. The IDF Home Front Command now has regional authorities over issues such as deciding if factories, schools and stores must close - or remain open.

The "special situation," which must be renewed after 48 hours, gives the Home Front Command the authority to order employees at vital workplaces, such as supermarkets and health clinics, to report for work. The Command can also order the police to station more forces in the affected area.

Gaza-based Palestinian terrorists fired five Kassams at the western Negev Sunday morning, causing injuries, damages and continued fear and anxieties amidst the besieged residents.  Over 125 rockets have hit the town at all hours of the day over the past five days, often with no more than 2-3 seconds' warning. Some 6,000 residents are estimated to have left the town, and more are on their way. The Defense Ministry and philanthropist Arcadi Gaydamak are sponsoring short vacations for the suffering townspeople.

Defense officials say that the Kassam rockets cause not only direct injuries and property damage, "but also various tribulations, such as those who are afraid to leave their homes and go to work, and businesses that are suffering. We must give a general economic, social and security solution."

Responses - Generally Favorable
Sderot Mayor Eli Moyal said the decision is "good news. I am happy that the government is beginning to make decisions, and that my call was answered."  Moyal ordered schools closed today, and explained that essentially there is no difference between schools and workplaces - "both are equally unsafe."

Shaar HaNegev Regional Council head Alon Shuster also expressed satisfaction: "The government is waking up. It's slow, but we are seeing a change in policy."

Alon Davidi, head of the Sderot Residents Forum, was not thrilled with the new decision: "Peretz and Olmert are waging the war in Sderot, instead of in Gaza. If they do not decide on a wide-scale ground offensive immediately, they will go down in infamy for the purposeless evacuation of a city."

MKs Tzvi Hendel and Aryeh Eldad (National Union) took opposite approaches. Hendel, a former resident of Gush Katif who was accustomed to living in an area under attack, said the decision is a good first step: "The next step must be a massive ground force offensive into Gaza to raze all the terror infrastructures to the dust - and not to repeat the mistakes that were made in Lebanon."

Eldad, on the other hand, was biting: "Instead of declaring a 'special situation' in the home front, Olmert's shadow government must declare a 'special situation' in the government. It must realize that it does not know how to function, and resign."

Meanwhile, Olmert and the Gaza-based terrorists are trading threats. With Hamas and Islamic Jihad threatening to resume suicide terrorist attacks, Olmert said before the Sunday Cabinet meeting, "Hamas has already begun to pay, and its leaders and terrorists will soon pay a heavy personal price."

 

 

Peretz makes big mention of his home in Sderot, but where does he live daily? The Sderot home is only a political show piece that works well for the bleeding heart liberals. If his family were exposed to the Kassam rockets on a daily basis, he would have cleaned out the Gaza long ago.

Breaking news tells us a woman was just killed in Sderot by a rocket that made a direct hit on her car. A sacrifice to the do nothing government of Olmert and Peretz. How many more Jews must be sacrificed?

(IsraelNN.com) A local woman was killed by a Kassam rocket in Sderot Monday night after an attack that scored a direct hit on her car as she stood next to it near a bakery in the center of town.

The woman, whose age was estimated by eyewitnesses to be about 35, was pronounced dead on arrival at Barzilai Hospital in Ashkelon. She had suffered severe injuries to her chest and stomach, and bled to death.

The barrage of five rockets slammed into a commercial shopping area in the center of town shortly before 8:00 p.m. Monday evening while business owners were meeting to discuss the situation. Most businesses were closed as a result, minimizing what might otherwise have become a mammoth disaster.

 

It is not that the Jews are helpless. They could wipe out these barbarians if they had the political will. The Lebanon army knows how to deal with the Al Qaeda barbarians, and they have the political will to keep them under control. Today they are attacking a Palestinian refuge camp where Al Qaeda has been operating with impunity. I doubt the UN will pass a resolution against Lebanon for their action as they would if Israel were to do the same thing to the Palestinian barbarians.

Lebanese Army Clashes With Islamist Militants; 70 Die (Update4)
 

By Tarek Al-Issawi and Gregory Viscusi

May 21 (Bloomberg) -- Lebanon's soldiers clashed for a second day with Islamist militants in the northern city of Tripoli as Lebanese officials accused neighboring Syria of sparking the bloodshed that may have killed 70 people.

Gunfights yesterday killed about 40 people, including 27 soldiers, the state-owned National News Agency said. As well as the soldiers and militants, another 30 people may have died yesterday and today inside the Nahr el-Bared camp, which houses about 30,000 Palestinian refugees and is at the center of the fighting, the agency reported.

A bank robbery set off this conflict. Palestinians left their refuge camp to rob their Lebanese hosts. They thought the Lebanese hands were politically tied. Lebanon moved in with tanks firing at point blank range into the refuge camp. Every shot fired from among the Palestinians was met with overwhelming canon fire. I doubt the Palestinian Al Qaeda will lift their heads again soon in Lebanon. The Lebanese do not send in the negotiating teams until after they crush the barbarians. It is a good lesson for all those who are pushing the Road Map on the Holy Land.

The God of the Bible also knows how to deal with the barbarians in the Holy Land. His dealings will be final (Ezekiel 39), and Islamic influence over the Holy Land will end forever. A negotiation offer will be available, but Islam is already known to reject it. The barbarians will be offered eternal life, but that life will only come through the Jewish Messiah and coming King. Friend, what about you? Will it be too much for you to submit to the coming Jewish King? Will you rather face death daily then come to Christ for eternal life? It may well be your heart is of no better quality then that of the barbarian? God often takes us to the limits before He opens the plan of salvation to our rebellious hearts. The hard heart must be broken before the loving Savior can enter. Friend, I don't know what you are facing this day, but I do know that Christ is the answer. Won't you come to this Savior who refuses to give up on your hard heart?

Matthew 13:15-16

15 For this people's heart is waxed gross, and their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes they have closed; lest at any time they should see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and should understand with their heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them.

16 But blessed are your eyes, for they see: and your ears, for they hear.

KJV

 

Luke 2:25-32

25 And, behold, there was a man in Jerusalem, whose name was Simeon; and the same man was just and devout, waiting for the consolation of Israel: and the Holy Ghost was upon him.

26 And it was revealed unto him by the Holy Ghost, that he should not see death, before he had seen the Lord's Christ.

27 And he came by the Spirit into the temple: and when the parents brought in the child Jesus, to do for him after the custom of the law,

28 Then took he him up in his arms, and blessed God, and said,

29 Lord, now lettest thou thy servant depart in peace, according to thy word:

30 For mine eyes have seen thy salvation,

31 Which thou hast prepared before the face of all people;

32 A light to lighten the Gentiles, and the glory of thy people Israel.

3 Their slain also shall be cast out, and their stink shall come up out of their carcases, and the mountains shall be melted with their blood.

Hamas Extending the Conflict to Judea and Samaria

by Hana Levi Julian

(IsraelNN.com) The Hamas terrorist organization has made it clear that the barrage of Kassam rocket attacks launched at western Negev communities from Gaza is only the beginning.

“Hamas has no red lines anymore because of the Israeli attacks on our children,” said a spokesman for the terrorist group on Monday.

Media reports quoted a senior Hamas leader as saying that the terrorist organization intends to wipe Israel off the map, echoing an oft-repeated vow by Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, who has referred to Israel as a malignant tumor.Hamas has recently become the beneficiary of generous funding, training and other support from Iran as well as its partner in Lebanon, the Hizbullah terror organization.

Soviet-made Grad missiles, with a 22-km range, have been added to the Gaza arsenal, as have Katyusha rockets, which were fired at northern Israel by Hizbullah in last summer’s Second Lebanon War.

The calls for Israel’s destruction came after Israeli missiles struck the home of a hamas lawmaker, killing several terrorists in the house. The attack had been intended to hit a different nearby terrorist cell.

Senior terror officials warned their members not to use cell phones, travel in cars or gather in public places, in order to reduce the chances of being targeted by Israeli air strikes.

 

 

The Road Map demands of the Olmert government that they withdraw from Judah and Samaria as the Sharon government did in Gaza. This is the next step in the Road Map plan. Already Hamas is preparing for just such a withdrawal. They are packing their new Russian made rockets into Arab Palestinian controlled areas within the West Bank. Folks, the hand writing is on the wall! Hamas is going to turn the entire West Bank into a rocket launching site as they have in Gaza! It is the Road Map peace plan for the Holy Land that is forcing this horror on the Jewish people. It is the secular liberal government of Olmert and Peretz that has committed themselves to implementing the Road Map. The plan is to give the Islamic barbarians most of the Holy Land, almost all of Jerusalem, and complete autonomy over the Temple Mount despite the clear intent of the Arab Palestinians to only intensify their ability to wipe Israel off the map. Never, in the entire history of mankind has such a plan been called a peace plan. It is absolutely foolish for any clear thinking human being not to see this as anything other then the final solution preventing the Jews from ever occupying the Holy Land. The plan is to give away forever most, and eventually all the land of the Bible to Islam. This would make the Holy Land become the land of the Koran in our lifetime. We are the generation sitting silently by while the world politicians spit in the face of God on our behalf. The final solution will be when the Jews realize that the Islamic Palestinians will never stop killing Jews. The Palestinian Arabs will have a forever base to continuously terrorize the Jews of Israel. It will never end until every Jew has been exterminated, or the God of the Bible steps actively into the picture. Ezekiel 39 is the final solution as presented in the Bible. It will not be the Jews who will be forced out of the Holy Land, but the Arabs.

The final solution in the last generation was what happened to the Nazis. The final solution in this generation will be what is going to happen to the mostly Arab Moslems. Death and destruction will be their end. They will stag a three pronged invasion of the Holy Land, but will die on the mountains and in the fields of the Promised Land. These interlopers will face the same fate as the Nazis.

Ezekiel 39:4-5

4 Thou shalt fall upon the mountains of Israel, thou, and all thy bands, and the people that is with thee: I will give thee unto the ravenous birds of every sort, and to the beasts of the field to be devoured.

5 Thou shalt fall upon the open field: for I have spoken it, saith the Lord God.

KJV

 

Friend, what is the final solution God has planed for you? What saith the Lord God about your fate? Friend, there is only one Savior. Have you come to Him for the forgiveness of your sin? Have you cast yourself upon His mercy and grace? Friend the final solution as to where you will spend all eternity hinges on what you personally have done with the LORD Jesus Christ! He is coming again to establish His Kingdom in the Holy Land, at Jerusalem, and on the Temple Mount. Friend, are you committed in your heart to His coming Kingship? Only the born again are going to enter into His coming Kingdom. Where will He place you when the final solution to your immortal soul is determined? You can still come to Him and be saved. Oh friend, won't you come to the light?

 

John 3:2-3

2 The same came to Jesus by night, and said unto him, Rabbi, we know that thou art a teacher come from God: for no man can do these miracles that thou doest, except God be with him.

3 Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.

KJV

John 3:7

7 Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again.

KJV

John 3:15-20

15 That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life.

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.

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.

Amnesty accuses Israel of 'serious rights abuses'

May 23 07:43 AM US/Eastern

Israeli soldiers and Jewish settlers committed "serious human rights abuses" against the Palestinians in 2006, mostly with impunity, Amnesty International said in its annual report issued Wednesday.

It also said civilians bore the brunt of rising violence last year between Israelis and Palestinians that saw a three-fold jump in Palestinians killed, although the number of Israelis killed fell by half.

During the 34-day Lebanon conflict last summer "both Hezbollah and Israel committed serious violations of international humanitarian law, including war crimes," said the report.


Truce Allows Civilians to Flee Refugee Camp in Lebanon

 

TRIPOLI, Lebanon  —  Hundreds of Palestinian civilians carrying their belongings in plastic bags trickled out of a besieged refugee camp Wednesday, taking advantage of a truce in fighting that mostly held overnight.

About 15,000 — nearly half the camp's residents — fled Tuesday night and another 1,000 left Wednesday, officials said. Those fleeing reported bodies littering Nahr el-Bared's streets and scenes of blasted buildings and destruction. U.N. officials said the bodies of at least 20 civilians have been retrieved from the camp.

It was unclear how long the truce would hold, and there were fears that allowing civilians out could be a prelude for a major showdown.

Meanwhile, Lebanese military officials said the body of the second-in-command of the Fatah Islam militant group was retrieved Wednesday near the camp in Tripoli.

The officials, speaking on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to talk to the media, said that the Lebanese Civil Defense personnel uncovered the body of Abu Madyan in the area of Abde, just north of the Nahr al-Bared camp.

 

 

Folks, I hope you understand how the politics work in our generation. International humanitarian Law forbids the Jews from defending themselves while the Arab people are free to follow their barbaric practices with impunity. It is a one sided world that hates God for having chosen the Jews above all other people groups. It was to the Jews God gave His Word both as revelation, and for preservation. It was to the Jews first God sent His only begotten Son, and it is to the Jews first that He is coming again. The world is jealous of the Jews, and so is quick to point out every weakness as if to say God made a big mistake by choosing the Jews. It is not that God chose the Jews exclusively, for He abandoned them in their sins often, and the world continued on. Provision was always available for the gentile. Read my article on the Old Testament stranger. Joshua the son of Nun the Canaanite, Ruth the Moabites, and David's mighty Philistine men are all examples of gentiles coming to the God of the Bible. The God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.

We are about to enter a new dispensation which is as great a transition as was the last from Old Testament to New Testament. The gentile Church Age is ending, and the Jewish Kingdom Age is about to begin. There will be no need for a Newer Testament to be written because all the statutes and ordinances for the Jewish Kingdom Age are already recorded in the Bible. John the Baptist (last of the Old Testament prophets) proclaimed "Repent, for the Kingdom of heaven is at hand!" That same Kingdom of which he spoke is being offered to the Jews first once again. This time the Bible says they are going to respond! The first time they rejected Christ, but this time they will come. God says He will put a new heart of obedience in them so that they will do all He commands. Biblical Judaism will rise out of the ashes of the leaven of the Pharisees which is today's Judaism. Through the blood of Christ the entire planet will be restored to Eden like existence. The curse will be lifted, and the lion shall lay down with the lamb. The intent of God when He first called father Abraham will finally be realized in Abraham's seed. The Holy Land, Jerusalem, and Mount Zion are all part of the plan God is formulating this very day. The Jews have returned in this our generation. Next will come restoration! The promised redemption of the heart and the Land is the future plan of God. A Holy Jewish Temple will offer daily blood sacrifice in remembrance of Calvary. The whole world both Jew and gentile will rejoice.

Friend, what about you? Without Christ there is nothing for you but eternal condemnation. The wrath of the Lamb is recorded in the B ible as awesome. You can come to the loving sacrificial Lamb of God who shed His perfect atoning blood for your sin, or He will come to you in judgment. Which will it be for you? This world will be jealous of you, and hate you for Christ's sake. Friend, rejection by this sinful world is little in comparison to what you will gain in Christ. Won't you come to Him for salvation, and live?

 

Revelation 6:16-17

16 And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb:

17 For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?

KJV


Revelation 5:12-13

12 Saying with a loud voice, Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive power, and riches, and wisdom, and strength, and honour, and glory, and blessing.

13 And every creature which is in heaven, and on the earth, and under the earth, and such as are in the sea, and all that are in them, heard I saying, Blessing, and honour, and glory, and power, be unto him that sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb for ever and ever.

Amnesty Int'l Targets Israel More Than Sudan's Genocide

by Ezra HaLevi

IsraelNN.com) Amnesty International issued a report last week accusing Israel of committing “war crimes” during last summer’s Second Lebanon War and in counter-terror operations since then.

The group’s report, an annual assessment of human rights violations, accused both the IDF and the Hizbullah – to an equal extent – of “serious violations of international humanitarian law, including war crimes.”

The report alleges: “Israeli forces carried out indiscriminate and disproportionate attacks on a large scale. Israeli forces also appear to have carried out direct attacks on civilian infrastructure intended to inflict a form of collective punishment on Lebanon's people, in order to induce them and the Lebanese government to turn against Hizbullah, as well as to cause harm to Hizbullah's military capability.” The report also condemned the IDF's use of cluster bombs, which it says has caused the death of 20 people since the end of the war.

With regard to Hizbullah, the report states: “Hizbullah's rocket attacks on northern Israel amounted to deliberate attacks on civilians and civilian objects, as well as indiscriminate attacks. Its attacks also violated other rules of international humanitarian law, including the prohibition on reprisal attacks on the civilian population"

The Jerusalem-based organization NGO Monitor took issue with Amnesty's claims. "Many of Amnesty's claims regarding the Lebanon War were false or severely lacking in credibility,” an NGO Monitor report found. “Amnesty accuses Israel of targeting residential areas without mentioning Hizbullah's systematic practice of operating from within civilian areas…[Also], no statements or documents of any type were issued condemning Hizbullah for abducting two Israeli soldiers, despite Amnesty's core mission of promoting freedom for political prisoners.

Turning to Judea, Samaria and Gaza, the Amnesty report claimed “650 Palestinians were killed by Israeli soldiers in 2006.” It later qualifies the figure that, saying “half of them [were] unarmed civilians.”

The IDF responded to the report, calling it “inaccurate.” The chief critique is that Amnesty regularly equates "terrorist groups who indiscriminately target civilians to a democratic country acting within the legal framework, fulfilling the right to defend its land, sovereignty, and citizens."

At the same time, the statement said the IDF has "great respect for Amnesty International for its actions in promoting the issue of human rights and does not intend to contest what is written in the report."

NGO Monitor went further than the IDF, pointing out that “the article accuses Israel of engaging in ‘excessive and disproportionate force against the Palestinian population’ without providing a legal analysis for this statement. The article goes on to claim Israel is ‘appropriating large areas of fertile Palestinian land’ without providing any sources for this allegation.”

NGO Monitor's report found that Amnesty International inordinately targeted the Jewish state for criticism. Conducting a quantitative analysis of Amnesty International’s focus and allotment of resources in the Middle East, the report summed up:

“In 2006, Amnesty International continued to promote a biased, anti-Israel political agenda, which exploited the language of human rights,” the NGO-Monitor report found. “Amnesty officials published more documents on Israel than on any other Middle Eastern country (with the partial exception of Iran).”

One of the key disparities, the report found, is that Amnesty has published far less significant documents dealing with Sudan (37), where there is an ongoing genocide of the local population by Muslim militias, then it did for Israel (48).

The NGO-Monitor report concludes: "The illustrations above are but a very few examples of the biased perspective that dominated Amnesty International's publications in 2006, leading to the dissemination of unbalanced and, at times, inaccurate information about the situation in the Middle East.”

Amnesty International’s Israel Branch Director Amnon Vidan defended the organization, saying Israel is held to a higher standard due to its status as a democracy.

“I would suggest NGO Monitor address the content of documents, rather than count their words. That way they will be able sympathize with the suffering of non-Jews," Vidan told Yediot Acharonot. He also said that Amnesty International did not condemn the kidnapping of two IDF reservists by Hizbullah since it “did not violate international law…Only the taking of civilians captive is against international law."
