Sociopathic elephant exiled to Israeli barn after murderous past
By Associated Press October 31, 2005
Ostracized by her herd, La Petite is looking to pack her trunk and move to a new home.
The 19-year-old elephant with a checkered past -- she killed her first baby and is suspected of killing a handler -- failed to fit in at a British zoo, and now is having trouble at an Israeli safari park.
Until she can be moved, the former circus performer is isolated from the park's other elephants, and animal rights activists are up in arms.
La Petite landed at the safari park in Ramat Gan in 2001 after being blamed for the death of a British trainer. Curators at the park hoped she would assimilate into their herd and breed.
For four years, La Petite did well. But shortly after giving birth, she killed her calf.
After that, the herd shunned La Petite. She attempted to rejoin the group, but a younger female elephant attacked her. In July, curators separated her from the other animals and started searching for yet another new home.
La Petite is restricted to a few stalls in the safari park's barn complex. While other elephants roam the park's spacious land during the day, La Petite is kept separated.
Safari park curator Amelia Terkil said the elephant is not violent.
"She had an unfortunate experience in a previous zoo...a bad day in which the keeper was alone in the house with her. Nobody knows exactly what happened but the keeper was found dead," Terkil said. "It's possible one of the other elephants (in the enclosure) might have done it, but they attributed it to her. We could take her because we do not handle our elephants."
Animal rights activists are frustrated that, after four months of isolation, La Petite is still in limbo.
Gadi Vitner, of the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) in Tel Aviv, said his group tried to arrange for a Tennessee wildlife refuge with other Asian elephants to take her.
"They are very social animals that should be with their families," Vitner said. "They don't like to be alone."
Safari officials didn't send La Petite to Tennessee because Asian elephants are an endangered species, and moving her to a zoo would give her another chance to breed. The World Wildlife Fund estimates fewer than 35,000 Asian elephants exist in the wild today.
Safari officials think they have found La Petite a suitable home at the Pont Scorff Zoo in northern France, which has pledged to create a new herd for her with another breeding male and an older, non-breeding female.
But until the paperwork is finalized and a transportation crate is built, La Petite continues to live in exile.

Architect of Park Hotel Bombing Planned Cyanide Attack
18:39 Nov 01, '05 / 29 Tishrei 5766
By Scott Shiloh
Abbas Al-Sayed, convicted of planning the bombing of Netanya’s Park Hotel that killed 30 Jews in April 2001, on the first night of Passover, also planned mass murder using cyanide.
After the bombing, Al-Sayed’s nephew, Tarik Zeidan, a pharmacist, provided his uncle with four kilograms of cyanide which he purchased in Jordan, according to a verdict issued Tuesday by Tel Aviv’s District Court.
Al-Sayed planned to use the cyanide to mass murder Jews in various parts of the country. Exposure to only a small quantity of the deadly material in one location could have potentially killed dozens of people.
Al-Sayed, who was arrested by IDF troops during Operation Defensive Shield that followed the Park Hotel bombing, was also convicted of planning the attack on the Sharon mall in Netanya which killed five people.
In yet another conviction, handed down in October, Al-Sayed was found guilty of from receiving explosives from Hamas terrorists in Syria.
According to reports, Al-Sayed was paid thousands of dollars for his terrorist activity against Israel. A number of Hamas terrorists who worked with Al-Sayed have still evaded capture by Israel’s security services.
The prosecution intends to ask the court to sentence Al-Sayed, 39, to consecutive life sentences. The three judge panel convicted Al-Sayed unanimously.
Poor La Petite, and poor terrorists. The world laments the plight of rouge elephants as it laments over the so called Israeli occupation of the Palestinians. The truth seems to indicate in this particular area the elephants are smarter then the Palestinian people! They ostracize baby killers, and have no room for them is their society. The Palestinians honor, and support their suicide bomber recruiters who often send the Palestinian children to their death as they target Jewish children. The Israeli's have the right plan that even "old mother nature" approves. They segregate, or kill those who have so hardened their conscience that only wild beastly behavior remains. The Bible warns the Palestinian people that by their behavior motivated by beastly hate for the Jews they are endangered with forcing God to manifest His wrath. The world will lament when Ezekiel 39 ends Islamic influence over the Holy Land, and in the process destroys the Palestinian Arabs. They are wiped off the scene as the Bible predicts the last years of this present dispensation. Islam ends when Ezekiel 39 takes place!
Friend, even the animals have enough sense to realize it is foolish to go against the structured plan of God. What about you? What have you done about God's plan for salvation? What have you taught your children about the God of the Bible?
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.
10 There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire , or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch,
11 Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer.
12 For all that do these things are an abomination unto the LORD: and because of these abominations the LORD thy God doth drive them out from before thee.
20 Moreover thou hast taken thy sons and thy daughters, whom thou hast borne unto me, and these hast thou sacrificed unto them to be devoured. Is this of thy whoredoms a small matter,
21 That thou hast slain my children, and delivered them to cause them to pass through the fire for them?
37 That they have committed adultery, and blood is in their hands, and with their idols have they committed adultery, and have also caused their sons, whom they bare unto me, to pass for them through the fire , to devour them.
38 Moreover this they have done unto me: they have defiled my sanctuary in the same day, and have profaned my sabbaths.

15 Thus saith the LORD; A voice was heard in Ramah, lamentation, and bitter weeping; Rahel weeping for her children refused to be comforted for her children, because they were not.
18 In Rama was there a voice heard, lamentation, and weeping, and great mourning, Rachel weeping for her children, and would not be comforted, because they are not.
Improvements Slated at Rachel's
21:58 Nov 02, '05 / 30 Tishrei 5766
(IsraelNN.com) Major General Yair Naveh, head of the Central Command, has promised that improvements will be made at the entrance and in toilet facilities at Rachel's Tomb in Bethlehem.
Several leading rabbis recently toured Rachel's Tomb with Yair, who said improvements will be delayed until completion of the nearby security fence. The anniversary of the death of Rachel, the younger wife of the patriarch Jacob, is marked on the 11th day of the Hebrew month of Chesvan, which begin the night of November 13.
Israel's plan to stop Palestinian violence is sensationalized by Reuters as "splitting Christ's birthplace".
As Israel prepares to build a wall to protect worshippers at Rachel's Tomb in Bethlehem, Reuters published this headline:
"ISRAEL TO SPLIT CHRIST'S BIRTHPLACE WITH BARRIER"
Reuters would have readers believe that Israel is driving a bulldozer straight through the Church of the Nativity. In fact, the proposed wall is miles from the church, and involves only 3.5 acres of land on the Jerusalem-Bethlehem border.
Apparently Reuters' agenda is to drive a wedge between the Jewish and Christian communities. To emphasize its point, Reuters repeats the word "Christ" or "Christian" in each of the article's first four sentences.
Read the article at:
The Oslo Accords provide for freedom of worship at holy sites, yet two of these sites -- Joseph's Tomb in Nablus and the ancient Peace For Israel synagogue in Jericho -- have been vandalized and burned by Palestinians acting under the watchful eye of PA police.
In the past 29 months, Rachel's Tomb has endured constant sniper fire, and Jewish worshipers must currently travel there by armored bus. The proposed wall will guarantee free access for all worshippers.
In an unintentional endorsement of the need for this wall, a website under the direct supervision of the Palestinian Authority designates Rachel's Tomb as a mosque -- "Bilal Ibn Rabah Mosque." Should the PA control the area, non-Moslems would be precluded from praying at Rachel's Tomb, since the position of the Mufti and other PA religious leaders is that it is blasphemy for infidels (Jews, Christians, etc.) to pray in a mosque. (IMRA) http://www.palestine-pmc.com/details.asp?cat=1&id=59418/02/2003
It is interesting to note that Palestinian officials announced they will appeal to Israel's Supreme Court to halt construction of the wall. Let's appreciate the irony: Forget the fact that the PA provides no legitimate due legal process for Arabs, but can you possibly imagine Jews getting a fair hearing in a PA court?!
And finally, we wonder how many media outlets will properly describe Rachel's Tomb as "Judaism's third-holiest site"? After all, we are so accustomed to seeing the Temple Mount described as "Islam's third-holiest site," in the interest of fairness, the media will certainly reciprocate, right?
===== MORE REUTERS' BIAS =====
Reuters's anti-Israel bias pervades its editorial policies. For example, in answering a reader's question: "Why do you refer to 'Arab East Jerusalem,' when that's not its real name?" the Reuters website states:
"We call it Arab
East Jerusalem to make clear this is the part of the city which is in the
West Bank, was occupied in 1967 and is predominantly inhabited by
Arabs/Palestinians, whereas West Jerusalem was occupied in 1948 and has a large
Read carefully. In the world of Reuters, East Jerusalem was "occupied" only in 1967, but no "occupation" status is accorded to Jordan's annexation of Jerusalem in 1948, which violated international consensus.
It is no wonder that Rachel was buried so close to Bethlehem. Her most famous mortal son David the mighty King of the Jews was to be born there 1000 years later. It was all part of God's great plan for the Holy Land. 1000 years after the birth of King David came one through this same seed, but who would be greater then David. Another King of the Jews, but one born miraculously of a virgin. A Jewish King planed by God to rule the entire planet, and establish a Kingdom that would never end.
There is no reason to doubt this Tomb is built on the authentic site where Rachel was buried. The history of this place is almost as old as time itself. The present conflict over this site has an age old origin of sorrow going all the way back to the days of Christ. The usurper King Herod was threatened when he found out Biblical prophecy was coming to pass in his generation. He feared the rightful King of the Jews would replace his usurped kingship. The murder of all the babies up to two years of age was his evil way of trying to keep his greedy possession of a title that was not his to claim.
Today, the Arabs acting like King Herod are trying to claim the Holy Land for themselves from the rightful owners. The story of the Jews is almost as old as the Bible itself. The Bible was turned into a Jewish Book from the 12th chapter of Genesis to the Book of Revelation. Clearly a mystery was revealed by Paul when he taught us about the Christian Church, but it is explained as nothing more then a wild branch grafted into the Jewish root.
17 And if some of the branches be broken off, and thou, being a wild olive tree, wert graffed in among them, and with them partakest of the root and fatness of the olive tree;
18 Boast not against the branches. But if thou boast, thou bearest not the root, but the root thee.
The Church Age is drawing to a close. The Bible is clear the next dispensation will be that of the Kingdom Age. The lament of Rachel over all these long ages will finally be comforted. Her seed, the seed of King David. The seed of the Jewish Messiah soon coming again to fulfill the prophecy found only in the Bible. He is coming again to deliver the Holy Land. The little town of Bethlehem so close to Jerusalem with all the richness it has as a birthplace will be delivered.
Friend, there is only one way for you to be delivered, and that is to accept this Christ of the Bible as your Savior. The door is closing on this present Age. The gentile branch will have lived out it's destiny. The true branch is quickly coming to life in this our generation. The root of old Abraham is surging forth to take the rightful God planed place in history. The Jews will be totally submitted to their soon coming King. It is to Him that you must also submit. Only His Kingdom is eternal never ending. You are either part of it, or you will abide under the wrath of God forever. The decision about Christ that you make is not taken lightly by God. It should never be looked upon lightly by his subjects either.
6 And thou Bethlehem, in the land of Juda, art not the least among the princes of Juda: for out of thee shall come a Governor, that shall rule my people Israel.
7 Then Herod, when he had privily called the wise men, inquired of them diligently what time the star appeared.
8 And he sent them to Bethlehem, and said, Go and search diligently for the young child; and when ye have found him, bring me word again, that I may come and worship him also.
9 When they had heard the king, they departed; and, lo, the star, which they saw in the east, went before them, till it came and stood over where the young child was.
10 When they saw the star, they rejoiced with exceeding great joy.
11 And when they were come into the house, they saw the young child with Mary his mother, and fell down, and worshipped him: and when they had opened their treasures, they presented unto him gifts; gold, and frankincense, and myrrh.
12 And being warned of God in a dream that they should not return to Herod, they departed into their own country another way.
13 And when they were departed, behold, the angel of the Lord appeareth to Joseph in a dream, saying, Arise, and take the young child and his mother, and flee into Egypt, and be thou there until I bring thee word: for Herod will seek the young child to destroy him.
14 When he arose, he took the young child and his mother by night, and departed into Egypt:
15 And was there until the death of Herod: that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying, Out of Egypt have I called my son.
16 Then Herod, when he saw that he was mocked of the wise men, was exceeding wroth, and sent forth, and slew all the children that were in Bethlehem, and in all the coasts thereof, from two years old and under, according to the time which he had diligently inquired of the wise men.
17 Then was fulfilled that which was spoken by Jeremy the prophet, saying,
18 In Rama was there a voice heard, lamentation, and weeping, and great mourning, Rachel weeping for her children, and would not be comforted, because they are not.

Mt. Zion Handover: President
Denies, Reports Persist
16:57 Nov 03, '05 / 1 Cheshvan 5766
By Hillel Fendel
President Katzav's office categorically denies any intention to sign an agreement to give over parts of Mt. Zion to the Catholic Church.Arutz-7 has received a copy of the alleged agreement to do so.
The proposed contract reads as follows:
"The State of Israel hands over to the Holy See the use of the Cenacle [the room of the event known as the Last Supper, above King David's tomb - ed.], of the access path to it, and of the spaces adjacent to it... It is the Holy See's intention to inform the Bishops - and through them the world's Priests - that the Catholic Church has been given the use of the Cenacle, inviting them to visit the Holy Place together with their faithful... The Holy See hands over this use of the Cenacle to the Custody of the Holy Land [which acts on behalf of the Holy See]... [which] will keep the Cenacle open from 6 AM to 8 AM for the celebration of the Holy Mass... Official liturgical celebrations of non-Catholic Churches can take place only upon prior written permission by the Custody of the Holy Land."
The proposed agreement stipulates that the Holy See will preserve the historic character of the site and keep it open to pilgrims and tourists, and that Israel will provide for the safety of the site.
A Foreign Ministry official said, “Israel is not prepared to relinquish its jurisdiction over this area” - but he admitted that a blueprint of a possible agreement with the Vatican has been received.
At present, since shortly after the Six-Day War in 1967, the Diaspora Yeshiva is located on Mt. Zion, and warns of the catastrophic implications for Israel if the deal goes through. "This is an enormous issue that is being pushed through without any public debate whatsoever," Yeshiva Director Rabbi Shabtai Herman told Tovia Singer on IsraelNationalRadio. He also spoke on INR's Stutz and Fleisher show.
He explained that if the Catholic Church receives control of the area, just a few hundred yards from the Temple Mount and adjacent to the Old City walls, it will turn it into "the international center for Catholics all around the world, and if the pope just gives the word, Christians will be flocking over here en masse." In addition, he noted, "there are many different religions here, and we have respect for all of them, but giving control to the Catholics will cause terrible friction."
Rabbi Mordechai Goldstein, who founded and still runs the Diaspora Yeshiva, officially known as Yeshiva Toras Yisrael. He elaborated in a follow-up discussion with Arutz-7:
"According to their bible, the land is to return to the Christians, and 144,000 Jews are to return to Mt. Zion. So their plan is for them to take control of the site, and then to announce that they are holding a mass reenactment of the Last Supper, with [all types of religious rituals], and to invite millions of Christians to come to Jerusalem and celebrate." He said that this means much tourism money for Israel, and that someone in the Israeli government is apparently very interested in making this happen.
The King David's Tomb complex is a complex of buildings of some 100,000 square feet where David, Solomon and others kings of Judea are said to be buried. "It is certainly one of the holiest spots in the Land of Israel," Rabbi Herman said. "We've already given away the Temple Mount and the Machpelah Cave, except for here and there when we're allowed in; now they want to give Mt. Zion away as well? For thousands of years, this area was almost always totally closed off to Jews. G-d gave it back to us in 1948, but parts of it were still in range and sight of Jordanian snipers and were not in full use. After 1967, Rabbi Goldstein founded the Diaspora Yeshiva here - and it became an island of holiness, the first yeshiva for baalei teshuvah [newly religious] in Israel; we were there day and night learning Torah. Rabbi Goldstein was almost prophetic in establishing this yeshiva at that time at that spot; destiny from above intertwined him with Mt. Zion."
President Katzav's office categorically denies any knowledge of plans to sign away the King David's complex, or intention to do so during his trip to the Vatican later this month. Despite this, Christian newspapers in Italy and around the world are replete with reports that such a deal is in the works. According to the reports, Israel will receive control of an 800-year-old synagogue in Toledo, Spain, known now as Santa Maria, in exchange for David's Tomb.
In an open letter to President Katzav, Shlomo Alfassa, Executive-Director of the
International Society for Sephardic Progress, ridiculed this idea: "When the Jews of Toledo prayed each morning, they faced east towards Jerusalem. It was not Toledo that they desired, but the Land of Israel, which was still unobtainable. Now, we have Jerusalem, we can go to the holy sites and we can live in the land. If those who built that synagogue knew that this abandoned building in Christian Spain was being traded for a piece of real estate in the Land of Israel, they would roll over in their graves. Today, the Santa Maria Synagogue is nothing but an empty shell, a tourist stop in a city where no Jews remain."
Rabbi Herman said that the above plan is merely the first step of a larger plan to turn all of Mt. Zion into a Christian site. He explained that the lower level of the complex, containing many chambers, rooms, passageways and the like, has long been under the control of Israeli bodies such as the Lands Authority, and that half of the area was assigned to the Diaspora Yeshiva. ...
Rabbi Herman said, "Our information, supported by many sources, is that this entire area is going to be given over to a tourism promotional company fronted by a man named David Bertoldi. Bertoldi has come with a supposed tourism project to take ownership of this area, close it off, and make it into a project that will serve Catholic tourists - and then anyone who wants to recite a chapter of Psalms will have to pay a $10 entrance fee, except for two hours in the morning. Bertoldi professes to be Jewish, but to the best of our information, he is a 'mumar,' someone who has transferred his faith elsewhere. He claims to be an independently wealthy man, but in fact is really just a straw man for -- the Pope! We have lots of information that he is in the pay of the local Francescan brothers, headed by Father Pierre Batista, and as far as we know they've already paid him $70,000, and he goes in to the various offices buying his way through the bureaucracy."
How can King David's Tomb itself, in the heart of Jerusalem, be passed along to the Pope, without even a whisper of discussion?!"
It was no coincidence that the LORD Jesus Christ picked that particular building in which to call together His disciples for the last supper. At that particular time the Tomb of David was not known being lost to history, but not to the LORD. The site of David's burial was only realized by archeologists in more recent history. It may be one of the best kept secrets that after one visits the authentic upper room of the last supper that one can go into the basement of that building on Mt. Zion, and visit the cave entrance where King David is buried.
The great tragedy of this generation is the secular Jewish government in Israel. These wicked fellows have no use for the Bible, or the holy places it identifies. The Bible is just a book of fairytales to them. They look at everything God has given them since 1948, and value it only as it can benefit them. Their liberal party only looks for what will cause good relations with the gentile dominated world. Value is measured in money not historical, or spiritual worth. The conservative side of this government has joined forces with the far left through Ariel Sharon in order to give away the Gaza. The Independent Fundamental Jewish Settlers who were the lone dissenters were effectively demonized into losing all their rights even rights as just plain helpless human beings over-run by a dictatorial government.
The Roman Catholic Church would love to have another place for pilgrims to go, and spend their money. Another Lourdes which is the most religiously visited site year in, and year out in the world even outpacing Mecca of Moslem fame. How the Roman Catholic Church could benefit in money, and prestige if the upper room could reach the status of Lourdes. All it would take is a couple of miracles attributed to the upper room, or a vision of Mary. The rush would be on, and the Israeli government would also surly benefit from the mass of Catholic pilgrims.
Folks, these are the great plans of little men, and worthless governments that are counted less then the dust found on the balance of God's judgment. They are insignificant worms trying to manipulate the Almighty God of all eternity. They are soon to pass away into eternal condemnation for having rejected God's only plan for salvation. The LORD Jesus Christ is coming again, but this time as the conquering King. Evaluate your standing with Him when He returns as the LORD of hosts. His awesome power will overwhelm the planet in an instant. Friend, beware lest He be angry with the testimony of your life as it relates to Him. His wrath when kindled just a little is more then all human history can bare. Blessed are all they that put their trust in Him. Cursed for all eternity will be the rest! The lost will abide under His never ending wrath while the saved will bask in His everlasting love. The choice is yours! You have no one to blame but yourself should you pass by this opportunity to go to Him in humble repentance, and ask for salvation. He paid the price for your sin with His blood at Calvary, but He will only apply that cleansing blood to those who personally come to Him and ask! Friend, are you saved?
6 Yet have I set my king upon my holy hill of Zion .
7 I will declare the decree: the LORD hath said unto me, Thou art my Son; this day have I begotten thee.
8 Ask of me, and I shall give thee the heathen for thine inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the earth for thy possession.
9 Thou shalt break them with a rod of iron; thou shalt dash them in pieces like a potter's vessel.
10 Be wise now therefore, O ye kings: be instructed, ye judges of the earth.
11 Serve the LORD with fear, and rejoice with trembling.
12 Kiss the Son, lest he be angry, and ye perish from the way, when his wrath is kindled but a little. Blessed are all they that put their trust in him.

Settlers and the Left
by Emanuel A. Winston
Nov 03, '05 / 1 Cheshvan 5766
Despite the political talk of unity, it is clear that there are significant, unbridgeable gulfs between the pioneering settlers and, let's say the Tel Avivians, for example.
Generally speaking, non-observant Jews of the Left refer to the settlers pejoratively as "fanatics" or "zealots". The settlers, on the other hand, often view the Left as empty of higher ideals and dedicated to self-serving pleasure, with little commitment to very much that is spiritual or with Jewish content. This may be because of the secular tilt to education, as the curriculum has been set by the Left since the founding of the State.
The average day in the life of a settler is quite different, in many respects, other than going to work. One significant difference is that an observant Jew prays three times a day, says a blessing for many of life's daily acts, such as eating, dressing in new clothes, and exhibits a respect for what HaShem provides through nature. These acts of blessing what comes from G-d are considered by the non-observant as primitive and useless ritual. Why bless an apple before taking a bite? Why offer a blessing after performing certain bodily needs, thanking G-d that you are able to function?
What they cannot grasp is that we humans are exceptionally fallible and need constant reminders to behave in a highly civilized fashion. Therefore, the morning prayers, for example, speak about being ethical, moral, ignoring the temptations of the flesh and the pocket. In effect, each day we are reminded to be honorable and to teach our children higher values.
It's not that there are no honorable people in Tel Aviv, Haifa, etc., because there are and I am proud to know many of them. It's just that most have been brainwashed to transfer their fear of terrorist attacks onto the settlers - as if the settlers are responsible for the teachings of Islam that mandate these murderous attacks for Allah. Strangely, certain non-observant Jews exhibit a certain respect for other religions, but little for their own. These non-observant Jews are also not interested in keeping the Land of Israel whole, secure and sovereign. They don't seem to know the two go together.
For them, if there were no settlers or settlement, then the Arab Muslim Palestinians would have the land they claim and their terrorist acts would return to a 'tolerable' level. The occasional suicide bomber blowing up a cafe or a wedding party at a hotel would just be an irritating, but acceptable, momentary shock, which would wear off in a day or a week. They wouldn't consider the reality that the terrorists are fighting for Islam to dominate the world and plan to continue until they have taken over all of the Land of Israel, because this is what they promise to do. The settlers and the settlements have been Israel's first line of active defense, a buffer, the red line, the warning signal, the canary in the coal mine.
But, to the city folk, particularly of the Left, the settlers are an uncomfortable mirror to many who consider themselves free of any religious burden and not subject to a higher authority than the laws of the government. For them, there is no Higher Authority through which they must filter what they do in their daily lives.
There was a time when the whole nation admired the settlers because they were a front-line tripwire to stop incoming terrorists or even full scale war by any coalition of surrounding Arab Muslim states. The nation knew that the settlers volunteered at a disproportionate rate to join the military. Their officers seemed more motivated to face the enemy, not break and run. Even the General Staff had to admit that their observant Jews in tanks had a better staying power than others.
This was a revealing mirror into which the non-observant, usually the Left, simply did not want to look. Who wants to have themselves compared to people who pray to be ethical and help their neighbors, even the Leftists, should the need arise? So, their next step was to demonize the settlers as "religious fanatics", "extremists" and all-around terrible folk. While the Leftists condemn observant Jews as "religious fanatics", they would not dare speak of church-going Christians or even the 'peaceful' Muslims in the same way. They refuse to grasp the fact that the mere existence of Jews, be they settlers or the most radical Leftists, is a provocation to the Muslims. Come to think of it, Adolph Hitler also considered any Jew a provocation.
The Left acts as if they believe that these hard-working farmers, among others, who made the sandy desert bloom are a provocation to the Arab Muslim Palestinians, who would otherwise be friendly, peaceful and no enemy to a non-Muslim State. The Left are quick to praise any effort to eject settlers from their land and their homes, hoping that this 'gesture' will bring a respite from terror attacks; which, of course, it doesn't.
As the Leftists quickly forget each suicide bombing attack, they also forget the killing of Jews by Arabs long before there was a proclaimed Jewish nation in 1948. They forgot the proclamation of Haj Amin Al-Husseini in 1929 that the Jews were going to attack the Al-Aksa Mosque built on the Mount of Solomon's Temple, and that, therefore, the Muslims must rise up and massacre the Jews. The result in Hebron alone was 69 Jews murdered. Not surprisingly, just the other day, a mullah in Gaza claimed the same thing, urging the masses of Muslims to rise up against the Jews in the name of Allah, to save Al-Aksa.
When Israel's Prime Minister Ariel Sharon fulfilled the wishes of the Left and evacuated Gaza/Gush Katif and northern Samaria - so there would be peace - the very next day, the Arab Muslims burned and looted the Jewish synagogues in a wild frenzy and then fired over 46 Kassam rockets into Israel. The Left fell silent for a moment, just as they did when the Oslo Accords failed and so many Jews were murdered. Since Oslo was signed September 13, 1993 on the White House lawn, more than 1,700 Jews (including some 48 Americans) have been murdered, with tens of thousands injured, many maimed for life. Indeed, the non-observant Left are definitely a breed apart from nationalistic Jews of the Right, particularly the settlers.
The settlers are a unique breed of Jews, more like the early, courageous Jews who came to Israel to farm arid land, drain swamps and build a nation. Later, the settlers retained that credo, while the Left became apologists for the Arabs, thinking that appeasing them would bring them peace. The Left seeded the army with politically-correct officers who would eventually become Leftist politicians. The Left seeded the courts with their kind, to the point that from the Supreme Court on down, it was merely a political party dedicated to a Leftist ideology of acceptable defeat and abandonment of the land. The Labor Left had one doctrine, which was to remain in power and to de-Judaize the nation, so it would be like all other nations. That ideology did, indeed, split the nation between those who believed G-d gave them the Land of Israel in perpetuity, and those who believed only in themselves and thought that the Land did not belong to the Jews.
Come to visit Israel and wander through the towns and villages that are the so-called settlements. You will see well-kept homes and streets. Go to their schools and observe the curriculum, which does not teach history with a hostile spin against our Jewish heritage. Note the hard-working families who make the land green and alive. Remember, there was a time these good folks tried their best to live with Arabs in nearby villages, worked with them, invited them to their celebrations. Then, the Oslo Accords, conceived in secret by then-Prime Minister Yitzchak Rabin and Shimon Peres, resurrected Yasser Arafat and the Islamists, motivated them to kill Israelis, and to teach their children to hate and kill their Jewish neighbors, according to strict Koranic laws.
There is a vast chasm between the coastal Jews, who claim to be superior to the Jews in the hills to the East, and those Jews in the hills to the east. Some will recall Abraham's offer to Lot as to where each would settle. Lot chose the then-fertile valleys of Sodom, where life was easier, although decadent. Abraham chose the harder life of the hill country. The Sodomites sank lower, immersing themselves in the easy life, corruption and abomination.
Eventually, G-d sent his emissaries to destroy Sodom and Gomorrah. But, even then, Abraham, the first Jewish settler, interceded and tried to stop the destruction. G-d agreed to Abraham's plea that even if there were only 10 good, honest men, then Sodom would be spared. When they could not, well, you know the rest.
Hopefully, this will not happen again to the Jews of the low-lying coastal cities, who may once again adopt the Jews of the hills and the settlements as their true brothers and sisters, and adopt a credo of a higher plain of life, giving thanks to G-d. May it come soon, and swiftly, and in our time.
The history of the Jews is the history of a divided Kingdom. They split soon after the death of King Solomon, and forever recorded the schism between the secular and the spiritual. Judah of the South retained control over the Temple while Israel (or Ephraim) of the North looked to the golden calves that Jeroboam set up in Bethel and Dan.
1 Kings 12:26-29
26 And Jeroboam said in his heart, Now shall the kingdom return to the house of David:
27 If this people go up to do sacrifice in the house of the LORD at Jerusalem, then shall the heart of this people turn again unto their lord, even unto Rehoboam king of Judah, and they shall kill me, and go again to Rehoboam king of Judah.
28 Whereupon the king took counsel, and made two calves of gold, and said unto them, It is too much for you to go up to Jerusalem: behold thy gods, O Israel, which brought thee up out of the land of Egypt.
29 And he set the one in Bethel, and the other put he in Dan.
A substitute for the God of the Bible was provided much like the secular humanism philosophy has taken control of the Tel Avivians. Today the schism is between the liberals and conservatives. The city folk against the country folk. The majority of secular Jews against the remnant of Independent Fundamental Jewish Settlers. The non-observant Jews against the observant Jews as the above opinion would have us understand.
The present day Christian Church suffers from a similar schism between the liberal minded Evangelicals, and the fundamentalist remnant. I would agree that as the history of Judah indicates they did not do a sterling job of being a humbly holy and pure people as so also today's fundamentalists are not so humbly holy and pure. The failure of Judah, the Independent Fundamental Jewish Settlers, and today's Christian Fundamentalists should in no way confuse the issue over who was, and is putting the Bible first in their allegiance. The failure of men should never reflect on the Holiness of the God of the Bible. It has, and always will be the remnant that stands on obedience to the Bible where the God of the Bible can be found. Today, tradition has been given a higher standing then the word itself in most of Christianity and Judaism. It remains those few who add nothing to, or take anything away from the word who are the remnant that God recognizes. The rest have only the phrase "woe" as their future.
28:1 Woe to the crown of pride, to the drunkards of Ephraim , whose glorious beauty is a fading flower, which are on the head of the fat valleys of them that are overcome with wine!
2 Behold, the Lord hath a mighty and strong one, which as a tempest of hail and a destroying storm, as a flood of mighty waters overflowing, shall cast down to the earth with the hand.
3 The crown of pride, the drunkards of Ephraim , shall be trodden under feet:
Those who would follow the golden calves of worldly compromise are compared to drunkards who are motivated by their own hedonistic self interests. They will be trodden under foot in the end.
God has no plan in His coming Kingdom for any schisms. All will be required to submit totally to the Biblical Christ, and to serve Him in perfect unity. All the rules and regulations for the Kingdom are already written down. They are found in the statutes and ordinances that God expected His chosen people to abide within. It will be the Bible, and only the Bible that will rule the next dispensation. They will all be cleansed through the blood of Christ. All who can't submit to the Biblical Savior will perish.
16 Moreover, thou son of man, take thee one stick, and write upon it, For Judah, and for the children of Israel his companions: then take another stick, and write upon it, For Joseph, the stick of Ephraim , and for all the house of Israel his companions:
17 And join them one to another into one stick; and they shall become one in thine hand.
18 And when the children of thy people shall speak unto thee, saying, Wilt thou not shew us what thou meanest by these?
19 Say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I will take the stick of Joseph, which is in the hand of Ephraim , and the tribes of Israel his fellows, and will put them with him, even with the stick of Judah, and make them one stick, and they shall be one in mine hand.
20 And the sticks whereon thou writest shall be in thine hand before their eyes.
21 And say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I will take the children of Israel from among the heathen, whither they be gone, and will gather them on every side, and bring them into their own land:
22 And I will make them one nation in the land upon the mountains of Israel; and one king shall be king to them all: and they shall be no more two nations, neither shall they be divided into two kingdoms any more at all:
23 Neither shall they defile themselves any more with their idols, nor with their detestable things, nor with any of their transgressions: but I will save them out of all their dwellingplaces, wherein they have sinned, and will cleanse them: so shall they be my people, and I will be their God.
24 And David my servant shall be king over them; and they all shall have one shepherd: they shall also walk in my judgments, and observe my statutes, and do them.

A Series of Dramatic
13:25 Nov 11, '05 / 9 Cheshvan 5766
By Nissan Ratzlav-Katz
Archaeologists announced this week the discovery of a 3,000-year-old Hebrew inscription. It is merely the latest of a series of dramatic archaeological finds in Israel in recent months
Archaeologists have discovered a 40-pound stone containing the oldest known example of the Hebrew alphabet. The stone, inscribed with the Hebrew alphabet written out in its traditional order, was found in the wall of a building dated from the 10th century BCE in Tel Zayit, ancient Judea, south of Jerusalem. The building itself was part of a network of structures at the site, indicating an important border town connected to a centralized kingdom.
The discovery was made by Dr. Ron Tappy, a professor at the Pittsburgh Theological Seminary, on the last day of a five-week dig at Tel Zayit. "This is very rare," he said, "This makes it very historically probable there were people [3,000 years ago] who could write." In an interview with the New York Times, Dr. Tappy said, "All successive alphabets in the ancient world, including the Greek one, derive from this ancestor at Tel Zayit."
In addition to constituting an important contribution in understanding the history of writing, the inscription helps to counter claims that the Bible could not have been written by Jews in ancient times, experts said. The find, in its context, suggests literacy levels that support Biblical writings of a unified Jewish kingdom.
Further details of the Tel Zayit discovery are to be reported next week during a meeting of experts on Biblical literature in Philadelphia.
For Biblical scholars, the latest discovery dovetails with another ancient Hebrew inscription found in August of this year in an archeological dig in the City of David, adjacent to the Old City of Jerusalem. The inscription was on a royal seal dating to the period of the First Temple. The seal has the name of Yehudi, son of Shelemiah, one of the top officials in the court of the last Judean king prior to the destruction of the First Temple, King Zedekiah. He is mentioned in the Book of Jeremiah.
The seal was found at the site of the palace of the Judean kings, according to archaeologists under the supervision of Dr. Eilat Mazar of Hebrew University. Several years ago, another circa-580 BCE royal seal was found in the same area. It had the name of Gemaryahu, son of Shafan, who is also mentioned in the Book of Jeremiah as a top official in the court of King Zedekiah's predecessor, King Yehoyachim.
The discovery of the ancient alphabet in Tel Zayit was preceded last week by the announcement of the discovery of a rare Christian religious structure from the 3rd-4th centuries CE on the grounds of Megiddo Prison, in northern Israel. Excavations at the site, carried out by the Israel Antiquities Authority (IAA), included the discovery of an impressive mosaic floor and three ancient Greek inscriptions.
IAA excavation supervisor Yotam Tefer said, "This is a unique and important structure vis-a-vis our understanding of the early period of Christianity..."
One of the inscriptions is dedicated to the memory of four women: Primilia, Kiraka, Dorothea and Crista. Other inscriptions memorialize the people who contributed to the church, including a military officer.
The Road Map, the withdrawal from the Gaza, and the entire worldly future plans for the Holy Land are all based on the idea that the Bible does not mean anything. The heathen Palestinians tell the world that the Holy Land belongs to them. They deny the historical claims of the Jews, and in so doing deny the Bible. The God of the Bible continually reminds men of the truthfulness of His word. The Biblical record is the true historical record of fallen mankind. Men try to deny the fact that God controls history. His intent is to over the generations to provide a means of salvation to those few of each age who humbly seek Him. The Biblical record teaches us that the LORD Jesus Christ was that provision for all who seek cleansing from sin. His sacrificial blood shed at Calvary is the only provision ever revealed in the Biblical record for eternal redemption.
1 John 5:11-13
11 And this is the record , that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son.
12 He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life.
13 These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God.
Denial of this truth is the condemnation for all of mankind born into sin. In very short time the heathen Palestinian usurpers will taste the wrath of the God of the Bible. Their denial that God is ending this present dispensation by bringing the Jews back to the Holy Land will be their death. The plan of God for the future of the Holy Land as revealed in the Bible is to bring in the promised Kingdom. All resistance to this biblical plan will result in judgment. This means the the blasphemous Road Map plan that would give the Holy Land to the heathen will be discredited in failure. The Israeli government that has given away Jericho, and the Gaza. That is planning to give away Samaria and Judah. The government that in accordance with the gentile Road Map is giving away Jewish sovereignty over the Temple Mount will end in total contempt by the God of the Bible, and the Jewish remnant that turn to Him. The entire world looking to the Road Map rather then the Kingdom as the future for the Holy Land will find only Armageddon in their denial of this great truth.
The LORD Jesus Christ according to the Bible is coming again. He is coming to the Holy Land, Jerusalem, and the Temple Mount. He is coming to establish His Kingdom where He will be the forever King of the Jews. All who are in denial of this great truth are predicted to die in their rebellion. provision for the gentile stranger is part of God's plan for this future Kingdom, but it will be a Jewish Kingdom! The Old Testament, and New Testament will merge in this coming Kingdom where Calvary will be remembered forever in the daily sacrifices that will be honored at the altar of the yet to be built Ezekiel's final Holy Jewish Temple!
18 Then he said to me, "Son of man, this is what the Sovereign LORD says: These will be the regulations for sacrificing burnt offerings and sprinkling blood upon the altar when it is built:
Friend, it is Christ from beginning to end of which the Bible reveals. Calvary was the peak of all human history. The Old Testament looked forward to the Messiah's sacrifice, and all future dispensations look back to Calvary. Don't follow the crowd into denial.
Have you come to this Biblical Christ for your salvation? He is the only one who can apply the cleansing blood of His sacrifice to you. It is a very personal application which requires you to go to Him in humble submission to His provided plan of redemption. There is no other way to be saved. Religion with all the trappings of generations of tradition can't save. Only the Biblical Savior has the power to save. Won't you go to Him today? Only Christ is the sacrificial lamb offered for sin so that lost sinners can be saved. The future Temple of Ezekiel's vision will always present this truth to those of the coming Kingdom dispensation.

Clinton, Peretz Speak at Rabin
00:07 Nov 13, '05 / 11 Cheshvan 5766
By Tzvi Ben Gedalyahu
Former President Bill Clinton told the crowd to stop memorializing and continue Rabin's policies. Newly-elected Labor party chairman Amir Peretz declared, "The way of Oslo is the way to peace."
"There is enough of all this missing." Clinton told more than 150,000 people who gathered for the 10th annual memorial at Rabin Square Saturday night. He said that if Yitzchak Rabin were present, he would tell them, "If you really think I lived a good life and if you think I made a noble sacrifice in death, for goodness take up my work and see it to the end."
The crowd wildly applauded newly elected Labor party chairman Amir Peretz who declared, "The way of Oslo is the way to peace."
Making his first major speech since his surprise triumph over Shimon Peres this Wednesday night, he said the series of Oslo peace agreements, which Yitzchak Rabin pursued as Prime Minister, "lives in every corner and is our hope."
He foresaw the days that "Arabs from Bet Hanoun [in northern Gaza] and Jews will play together" near the Negev city of Sderot, Peretz's home town.
The crowd interrupted Peretz with applause when he said, "The land is full of violence. It is found among ourselves. We have not stopped the atmosphere of violence" which he said is caused arresting Arabs in Judea and Samaria.
Justice Minister Tzipi Livni (Likud) told the crowd, "I see the signs and slogans, but this is not a political rally." Several politicians and public figures have criticized the annual memorial for the assassinated Prime Minister as being too political.
Earlier in the evening, former American President Bill Clinton told the Savan Forum on United States-Israel Dialogue that he believes Rabin's policies still represent "our best chance for a comprehensive and lasting peace."
The conference and dinner, for which people paid up to $100,000 to attend, was held at the King David Hotel in Jerusalem. Clinton told Israelis, "Do what Jews have done throughout history: Grieve, laugh, remember that God gives no guarantees, and get back to greening the desert of despair, one tree at a time."
Peretz Threatens To Topple Government This Week
21:34 Nov 12, '05 / 10 Cheshvan 5766
By Tzvi Ben Gedalyahu
Peretz puts his cards on the table: A meeting with Sharon this week or the government falls; Labor will not join a Likud coalition after the next elections; Arabs will be part of a Labor government.
The ultimate liberal Labor Party in Israel is seizing the moment. The Oslo Accords founded by Bill Clinton and then Labor Party leader and President Rabin that resulted in the disaster of today's peace in the Holy Land is now about to be revived. The spin blaming the Independent Fundamental Jewish Settlers for all the trouble has worked. The failed Oslo Accords that was the precursor for the Gaza withdrawal as the first step in implementing the Road Map is now about to be spun into a good thing. Bill Clinton who remains in denial about his sexual perversions as not being condemned by the Bible now goes into greater denial by promoting the failed Oslo Accords as a good thing. Bill Clinton has told the Jewish liberal majority that they must proceed in the spirit of Oslo. Ariel Sharon was a gift horse when he took the conservative Likud Party into the liberal camp by adopting their policy of giving away to the heathen Arabs most of the Holy Land for the hope of peaceful relations. Now, the liberals are seizing the moment to take control of the government once more as in the blasphemous days of Clinton and Rabin.
We in America have experienced our own gift horse to the liberals with the adoption of the Road Map by our conservative president. The adoption of the Road Map by the Evangelical White House is as diabolical as the adoption by Sharon of the Oslo withdrawal polices aimed at giving away most of the Holy Land to the heathen Arabs! the abandonment of the Bible by the liberals of both Israel and America is nothing new, but the abandonment by the conservatives of both is unprecedented.
The God of the Bible is neither conservative or liberal. What He is is absolutely holy! His standard is that of perfect righteousness. I have watched this God side with the liberal civil rights movement of the sixties as well as the conservative pro-life antiabortion issues of today. This God of the Bible is where right is being upheld. Men try their best to draw Him into their politics, but the Bible always prevents that from happening. It rebukes the wrong found in all politics, and reveals the truth behind all secular political movements. Only in the next Kingdom dispensation will the Bible be the politics of the world as the Jewish King takes possession of His rightful inheritance. Only then will righteousness rule planet earth.
The re-emergence of Bill Clinton into Israeli politics should be no surprise. He represents everything that is wrong both morally, and politically in the world today. The schism in Israel that is being developed will soon be a remnant of those who stand on the Bible being opposed by the vast majority of those who disagree with Biblical righteousness.
Friend, your agreement with the Christ of the Bible is all that matters today in your life. Have you received Him as your Savior? Are you one of His children? Have you been cleansed in His blood? Now, is the time to go to Him with your sins, and ask for forgiveness. He has never refused a lost sinner coming to Him in humble repentance seeking eternal salvation. Acceptance is available to all who come with all their heart, soul, and mind.

Islamic Radicals Plan World
Revolution from Temple Mount
20:47 Nov 13, '05 / 11 Cheshvan 5766
By Scott Shiloh
Islamic radicals have been using the Temple Mount as a focal point for planning and preaching the establishment of a world Islamic state with Jerusalem as its capital.
One of the radical groups operating on the Temple Mount is Hizab Altahrir (The Islamic Liberation Party), which espouses an ideology similar to Al Qaeda. Hizab Altahrir’s network spans most Western European countries. The party puts Islamic revolution and an uncompromising form of Jihad (holy war) at the top of its political agenda.
The group advocates subjecting the entire world to Islamic law (Shariya), and destroying non-believing nations and religions.
Hizab Altahrir’s activity, however, is not limited to the Temple Mount. The group is sending out charismatic Islamic preachers to spread its radical ideology to mosques in villages near Jerusalem, Hebron, Kalkilya, and Tulkarem.
Last October, during Ramadan, when large numbers of Moslems visit mosques, the party expanded its efforts to recruit new members and activists.
Thousands of young Arabs living in the Palestinian Authority have been participating in the party’s youth movement under the slogan, “Campaigning to Preach Revolution.”
On the Temple Mount, near the Dome of the Rock, Altahrir’s youth recently put up a giant banner declaring “Revolution is a Divine Command.” The party’s flag appears on the right and left hand side of the banner. (See photo above). The youth were greeted by party members who shouted, “Next year in Jerusalem, under the rule of the Islamic revolution.”
The party has targeted Europe, specifically Denmark, for spreading its revolutionary ideology, and providing a springboard for renewing Islamic conquests in Europe. A senior party activist in Jerusalem, Sheikh Issam Amira, expressed this philosophy in a recent speech which he made on the Temple Mount:
“Listeners! The Moslems in Denmark make up three percent [of the population], yet constitute a threat to the future of the Danish kingdom. It’s no surprise that in Bitrab (the ancient name of Medina, a city in Arabia to which Mohammed immigrated) they were fewer than three percent of the general population, but succeeded changing the regime in Bitrab.
“It’s no surprise that our brothers in Denmark have succeeded in bringing Islam to every home in that country. Allah will grant us victory in their land to establish the [Islamic] revolution in Denmark.”
After Denmark, the Sheikh said, the party will carry the revolution to Oslo and change its name to Medina. “They will fight against their Scandinavian neighbors in order to bring the country into the territory of the revolution,” he said. “In the next stage, they will fight a holy jihad to spread Islam to the rest of Europe, until it spreads to the original city of Medina where the two cities will unite under the Islamic flag.”
Sheikh Riyad Salah, head of the Islamic movement in Israel has also been active teaching the tenets of “Islamic revolution.”
“We are at the gates of the Islamic revolution,” he proclaimed in one of his sermons to Arab citizens of Israel. “The global forces of evil will be eliminated from the world and the Islamic nation will remain in place in order to bring about the world Islamic revolution, with its capital, Jerusalem.”
Salah, who until a few months ago was under arrest for allegedly assisting an organization connected to the Hamas terror group, has for a number of years been attempting to organize Israel’s Arab citizens into an “independent Palestinian society,” disconnected from the State of Israel and its institutions.
Salah’s organization has also contributed to efforts to repair Arab mosques on the Temple Mount, and attempts to erase the remains of Jewish antiquities on the Mount.
The battle of Jew and Arab over the Holy Land is finally focusing on the Temple Mount where the Bible always predicted. It will soon be the center of contention. Islam contends that their noble warriors are going to exterminate all the rebellious infidels in the Holy Land starting with the Jews. The 1948 formation of the State of Israel on land Islam claimed was theirs since the crusades is where the modern battle has it's origin. The Biblical plan of God was always to bring the Jews back to the Holy Land in order to establish the next Biblical Kingdom dispensation. The Arabs were aghast to find that the God of the Bible was taking back control of the Holy Land. The Jewish State became a threat to the Koran which claims the Arabs are the chosen of Allah while the Bible predicts it is the Jews who are the chosen of God! The real battle that is underway is that of which book accurately predicts the future of the Holy Land? The Bible, or the Koran? Who is the greatest prophet of all time. The Jewish LORD Jesus Christ, or the Arab usurper Mohamed? The answers to these great questions are being sorted out in the events taking place on, and around the Temple Mount.
Today we see a secularized Jewish government doing everything it can to ignore the Bible. They think through their own wit they can control the Islamic hordes. They have put their trust in the gentile Evangelical Bush White House, and the gentile Road Map authored by the atheistic Russians and Europeans. They should be putting their trust in the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob who produced this miraculous Third Exodus of Jews back to the Holy Land.
I am convinced that the Road Map, and 9/11 are tied together. The first announcement by Colin Powel of the adoption by the US of the Russian / European Road Map plan for the future of the Holy Land was postponed because of the events of 9/11. The announcement was intended to be the news story of the day, but was abandoned when the Islamic attack took place. I would go so far as reminding everyone that in Iraq our early unprecedented low casualties came because Bush went against the atheistic gentile world, and invaded the terrorist enemy. Again, the compromised Road Map intended to smooth ruffled feathers during the occupation I think caused the quagmire of our present situation. Even so, 2000 casualties at this point is still unprecedented in a major military engagement. Only the bleeding heart liberals could spin such figures into something bad.
The bad thing is the Road Map! It is intended to give Islam the prize! The Temple Mount! God gave the Jews sovereignty over this extraordinary site in the 1967 when Jewish troops dislodged the Jordanian defenders. The Islamic Waft recognizing the hand of God turned the keys of the Mount over to the Israeli General Moshe Dian who then made the biggest blunder in Jewish history by returning the keys to them. This act of compromise may have given Dian a day or two of worldly fame, but ended all God was doing for the Jews of that first generation of the Exodus. Today these secular Jews have given away Jericho where Joshua won the first decisive battle over the indigenous Canaanites. They have given away the Gaza Strip. The next step of the Road Map will be the give away of Samaria and Judah. With Judah will go most of Jerusalem, and most importantly that part of Jerusalem where the Temple Mount is located.
The Bible is very clear that this Road Map peace of compromise will not work! It will only bring about the yet to be fulfilled prophecy of the Islamic Invasion of Ezekiel 38 & 39. Folks, that invasion is almost here! Are you ready? The LORD Jesus Christ is coming again to the Holy Land, Jerusalem, and the Temple Mount! The Bible says He is coming in great power such as was never experienced on this planet. A part of His character is yet to be revealed. The LORD of hosts! The mighty God of battle is about to claim the Holy Land for Himself. Friend, if you have never come to Him for salvation you will never stand against Him in your flesh.

PA GAINS RAFAH BORDER
Rice secures midnight compromise
The long-awaited agreement over control of the Gaza-Egypt border crossing has been finalized after both sides took part in midnight negotiations on Monday with US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice. Rice, who was scheduled to leave Jerusalem for North Korea on Monday morning, extended her stay until a deal was secured. Under the terms of the new arrangement, the border crossing is the first to be transferred to full PA control, and is tentatively scheduled to open on November 25.
Praising the agreement as a "big step forward" in strained Israeli-Palestinian relations Rice insisted that the opening up of the Rafah crossing would be a key to the future economic development of the impoverished Palestinian coastal strip.
"This agreement is intended to give Palestinian people the freedom to move, to trade, to live ordinary lives," Rice told a news conference.
Speaking at the Knesset's Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee meeting on Tuesday, former Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu slammed the decision as an open door for terrorist weapons to make their way into Gaza.
"Kassam rockets and mortars will be transported through Judea and Samaria to be launched at Israel," he said. Committee Chairman Yuval Steinitz meanwhile accused the government of bowing to US demands. "Israel was pressured into opening up the crossings before we were ready; we gave in to pressure from the Americans," he said.
Rice also discussed the upcoming Palestinian parliamentary elections assuring Prime Minister Ariel Sharon that the US administration never to hold contacts with Hamas or Islamic Jihad even if their members are elected to office in January.
Katsav: Al-Qaida Penetrated Gaza Strip
Israeli President Moshe Katsav said Tuesday that the global al-Qaida terrorist network penetrated the Gaza Strip after Israel's summer pullout, becoming the latest senior Israeli official to issue the warning. "The world praises Israel for evacuating the Gaza Strip, but because of that, more sophisticated weapons and terror groups, including some al-Qaida cells, have penetrated," Katsav said in Rome after talks with his Italian counterpart Azeglio Ciampi. Last month, Israel's Prime Minister Ariel Sharon's counterterrorism adviser, Danny Arditi, said al-Qaida operatives apparently infiltrated into Gaza during several days of chaos following Israel's pullout, according to The Jerusalem Post.
The Road Map is the driving force the whole world is pressuring on the conflict in the Holy Land. The United States has put all the weight the Bush administration can muster to see that it is the Road Map that will direct the future of the Holy Land. Ariel Sharon has proved to be a puppy when dealing with the chief negotiator sent by the US. He bends over backwards so as not to offend. He must know the PA are not going to control the arms crossing the boarder into the Gaza. He must know this is not a good thing for the Jewish people, but he is willing to have the Jews sacrifice for gentile favor. He is willing to trust the Evangelical George Bush to do what only God can do. Bush apparently feels that he can do what God has not done yet, and that is to bring peace to the Holy Land. He treats the Holy Land as just another place that is no more significant to the God of the Bible then Tim-Buck-Too. God has nothing to say about Tim-Buck-Too in the Bible, but He has a lot to say about the Holy Land. Both Bush and the secular Jewish Government of Israel have left God out of their future planning. They will probably have to be shaken to their core before they will acknowledge that this is God's Land, and He is changing dispensations as the Bible predicts right where He did most everything else in the Bible. God is not planning to give away His Holy Land to the heathen at this crucial point of the present day Third miraculous Exodus. The Road Map is a slap in the face of God to any who claim they are following the Bible.
The whole world is blind to the times. The news media mock any talk of Christ coming again to the Holy Land, Jerusalem, and the Temple Mount. They mock talk of Armageddon, and the seven years of Great Tribulation leading up to this day of overwhelming wrath. This puffed up Evangelical Church of today for the most part is silent as our Evangelical President goes deeper and deeper into the blasphemous Road Map. It is as if the Bible does not exist! What greater plan could Satan come up with to stop the second coming of Christ then to plant the most barbaric society on the planet right in the middle of the Holy Land giving them a forever kingdom? What greater plan then to give the heathen most all of Judah and Samaria? What greater plan then to give them most of Jerusalem for their own capital (What a slap in the face that is!). What greater plan then to give the heathen total sovereignty over the Temple Mount after God gave it to the Jews for the building of the Last Holy Jewish Temple? Yet, the Evangelical Church of today supports their Evangelical President in all he does. Politics are more important then truly believing the Bible!
I suppose some can say it is not for our generation. Some generation way off in the far future may see the Bible fulfill all it says about the future of the Holy Land, but it is not for us. Friend, I tell you this generation is far more blind then the majority of Jews were when Christ came the first time! It is this neither cold or hot generation that the God of the Bible says He will spew from His mouth.
The worst place to be today is meandering around with the crowd of wretched, miserable, poor, blind, and naked Christians.

Palestinians stage mass armed march
Defying a Palestinian Authority ban on public displays of weapons, about 1,000 people brandishing assault rifles and rocket launchers marched through Gaza City on Thursday and vowed to hold on to their arms.
Members of the Al Aksa Martyrs' Brigades, fired into the air while their leaders made speeches insisting on the right to bear arms against Israel.
"Brothers, don't ever give up your weapons," said a senior Gaza leader known by the nickname Abu Ibrahim. "We can't lay down our arms while Israel still occupies the West Bank, surrounds Gaza and controls our airspace and coastal waters, which means that the occupation remains and resistance will continue."
The arms ban officially went into effect two months ago days after an explosion at a rally for Hamas killed 25 people. Hamas blamed Israel, but Palestinian investigators said the blast was set off when militants mishandled explosives they were displaying at the rally.
Al Aksa spokesman Zakariye Assouli said the group supported the Palestinian Authority's efforts to stop internal violence while reserving the right to avenge Israeli attacks.
"We respect our brothers in the political leadership," Assouli said. "We honor their commitments, but they can't ask us to watch daily Israeli aggression and to remain silent."
The Palestinian Authority has had great difficulty trying to impose order in Gaza, where terrorists routinely flaunt their power.
A generation of Arab youth now grown up have heard only "kill the Jew!" They heard it from their parents, they heard it from their neighbors, they heard it from their school teachers, they heard it from their religious mullahs, they heard it from their governmental leaders, and they heard it from the media on a daily basis. Who could be so naive as to think they will now put down their arms because their Chairman who's claim to fame beforehand was a book he wrote denying the Holocaust as a Zionist plot has asked them tongue-in-cheek to do so? This Road Map defies reason! Only Satan himself could so deceive such a naive generation.
The Road Map encourages the Arabs into the false belief that the Holy Land is theirs. The gentile world has all but said most of old Canaan is rightfully yours for a forever kingdom! This attitude is blasphemous to the Bible. Even the secular Jewish government has agreed to compromise with the gentiles, and particularly with the Evangelical Bush administration to do all it can to see the Road Map is put into place. They have given away a part of Canaan Land that God has already given them in this Third miraculous Exodus as a first step in the Road Map. Next will be Samaria, and Judah, and with Judah most of Jerusalem for their capital. The capstone of the Road Map will be the Temple Mount sovereignty that will go with Jerusalem to the most barbaric society on the face of the planet.
On that day the gentile god Allah can claim victory. The god of Abraham, Ishmael, and Esau will have defeated the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob! The Nation of Israel will be just another insignificant spec of dust on the justice scales of God like all the rest of the nations. Folks, that day, if and when it should come, will not last long! God has put His word on the line in the Bible. He has directed His prophets to singularly declare it is the Jews not the Arabs who are His chosen! God has told us that even when the Jews were wandering through the nations the Land of Canaan was theirs! It was theirs then, and it is theirs now! The Bible says so! Woe to any man who would suffer them wrong. That goes for the Arab Palestinians as well as the rest of the gentile world.
This Road Map is a bad thing, and I would caution any who would support it as treading on dangerous ground with the God of the Bible!

SCOTLAND CHURCH DEBATES DIVESTMENT
But will continue investing in Israeli property
Taking part in a widening campaign of mainline Protestant churches to divest from Israel, the moderator of the Church of Scotland's General Assembly, David Lacy, has called on the church to halt humanitarian efforts in Israel. The General Assembly, the church's highest decision-making body, is scheduled to hear issues on divestment at their next meeting in May.
Rev. Clarence Musgrave, minister of St. Andrews Church in Jerusalem, told The Jerusalem Post "The church exercises moral judgment regarding where it invests." He said. "This subject is under discussion in many churches in the UK and US. Many people within the church are not in favor of particular policies that the church is also not in agreement with for example, Israel's settlement policies and discrimination against a particular group based on their religion."
However, a spokeswoman for a hotel in Tiberias owned by the Church of Scotland that is continuing with its $5 million refurbishments, countered Lacy's remarks. Despite growing support for Lacy's view in the church, Yael Shavit said that Lacy's words were taken out of context.
"This is not the church's position. The Church of Scotland has no political agenda, only to help weaker sections of society. The church does not think in radical terms. It looks after weaker people," she said.
Many Christians do not realize the animosity the main line denominations have toward Israel. It stems from the long taught false doctrine of replacement theology. The puffed up leadership of main line Christianity believe that when the Jews rejected Christ they forever lost their standing as God's chosen people. These pompous Christians teach that all future blessings promised to the Jews are now nullified, and everywhere that the Bible predicts future blessings for the Jews that they (the main line Christian Denominations) should be understood as replacing all references to Israel.
The conceit of this generation of main line Christianity will be their doom. It will be the doom of all their constituents who give them the position from which they exhibit their animosity toward Israel. Dispensations are changing! The Kingdom is coming! The LORD Jesus Christ is coming again to the Holy Land, Jerusalem, and the Temple Mount as King of the Jews. God has brought the Jews back to their Promised Land in this our generation so the Bible will be literally fulfilled. Where it says Jacob it means Jacob. The physical seed of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob! The main liners are in denial. The Holy Land, Jerusalem, and the Temple Mount are now in Jewish hands. Their theology has been proven a lie! The times of the gentiles is coming to a close.
Folks, do you see why the Road Map is supported by the main liners? Do you understand why even the heathen Islamic Arabs are preferred over the Jews? The Church of Scotland is but a small cog in the wheels of main stream Christianity, but it reveals the attitude of the entire whore of Apostate Christianity. They have branded this Third miraculous Exodus of Jews back to the Holy Land as immoral! They brand the Independent Fundamental Jewish Settlers as one of the most immoral societies on the planet today.
I can only pray your priorities are better aligned with a literal Biblical interpretation of the events of today. Great things are happening in the Holy Land during this our generation. The sad part is that most of the world is willingly blind to what is happening.

Radical Islamic Leader of
Israeli Arabs Visits Temple Mount
19:12 Nov 20, '05 / 18 Cheshvan 5766
By Scott Shiloh
Ra’id Salah, head of the radical
Islamic movement in Israel, which denies
the Jewish state’s right to exist, paid a visit to the mosques
on the Temple Mount on Sunday.
Salah, who heads the Galilee branch of the movement, spent the past two and a half years in jail for a variety of security related offenses, among them, money laundering, membership in illegal organizations, maintaining illegal contacts with persons hostile to the state, and funding activities of the Hamas.
The Hamas is a radical Islamic terror group, popular among Arab residents of Judea, Samaria, and Gaza.
Salah was released last July, on condition he not visit Jerusalem for four months. The ban expired last Thursday.
Fearing an outbreak of violence, police, according to one report, persuaded Salah, not to visit the Temple Mount last Friday. A spokesman for the Islamic movement, Zahi Nujidat, said however, that he did not know of any such agreement with the police. He said that Salah’s visit was planned for Sunday, due to time constraints.
The Islamic movement in Israel has gained in popularity out of the resentment many Israeli Arab citizens feel about living in a country under non-Moslem rule. Salah’s movment is centered in the Arab-populated city of Um al Fahm, located in the Nahal Iron (Wadi Ara) district, between the Sharon plain and the Galilee.
Salah’s movement is also fanatically anti-American. In he speech he gave on Sept. 18, Salah said that hurricane Katrina was brought about by President George W. Bush. “What has brought hurricane Katrina upon you is the injustice of George Bush Jr. and of the White House. Remove this injustice from the world if you want Allah's punishments to cease afflicting the American people,” he said.
What is it that makes the Temple Mount the most Holy site on the planet? It is the Holy of Holies, and the altar of blood sacrifice that stood before its entrance! The place where this Holy House of God once stood makes it sacred, and the Bible says the Jews are going to restore the Holy Jewish Temple one more time! It will be even more glorious then it was in the past after the last Temple (Ezekiel's Temple Ezek 40 -48) is completed. The Glory of God will return to the Holy of Holies one more time as it did twice before. Once in the wilderness, and once on the Temple Mount.
34 Then a cloud covered the tent of the congregation, and the glory of the LORD filled the tabernacle.
1 Kings 8:10
10 And it came to pass, when the priests were come out of the holy place, that the cloud filled the house of the LORD,
Ezekiel speaks of his vision during the Babylonian captivity after the First Temple was destroyed where God took him to a future Temple that to date has not yet been built. This was not a vision of the Second Temple because there is no record in the Bible, or anywhere else where such a Temple as Ezekiel describes was ever built. Ezekiel tells us this Temple of his vision will be built on Mount Zion within the city walls of Jerusalem. He tells us how the same Glory of God comes through the East Gate (Golden Gate), and enters the Holy of Holies>
43:1 Afterward he brought me to the gate, even the gate that looketh toward the east:
2 And, behold, the glory of the God of Israel came from the way of the east: and his voice was like a noise of many waters: and the earth shined with his glory .
3 And it was according to the appearance of the vision which I saw, even according to the vision that I saw when I came to destroy the city: and the visions were like the vision that I saw by the river Chebar; and I fell upon my face.
4 And the glory of the LORD came into the house by the way of the gate whose prospect is toward the east.
5 So the spirit took me up, and brought me into the inner court; and, behold, the glory of the LORD filled the house.
Folks, there is nothing more blasphemous then to have this radical Islamic heathen stand on this Holy Place, and curse the chosen of the God of the Bible. This puffed up Islamic usurper would tell the world that the God of the Bible is about to be defeated. The God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob is about to bow-down to the Islamic god Allah. The god of the Koran who boasts of the seed of Abraham, Ishmael, and Esau as being the chosen of Allah.
It is the Road Map that gives him such confidence to stand on this Holy Jewish place, and make such blasphemous statements. Should he live long enough to see the glory of which Ezekiel speaks enter through the East Gate, his tongue will surely melt in his mouth as he is burned in the fervent heat of the coming judgment.
2 Peter 3:9-10
9 The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.
10 But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat , the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.

Sharon Once Again Speaks of
01:22 Nov 22, '05 / 20 Cheshvan 5766
(IsraelNN.com) Prime Minister Ariel Sharon on Monday night once again spoke of the need to make “painful concessions” to the Palestinian Authority (PA) in talks surrounding the final status borders.
Sharon indicated that additional Jewish communities would be uprooted in Judea and Samaria, despite having said following the Gaza disengagement that there would be no additional removal of communities in the future. The prime minister spoke of “settlement blocs” but made it clear that his plan for the future entails additional “painful concessions.”
Sharon Remains Committed to
23:11 Nov 21, '05 / 19 Cheshvan 5766
(IsraelNN.com) Prime Minister Ariel Sharon told reporters at a nationally televised press conference on Monday night that he remains committed to the Roadmap plan, stating Israel will have to determine final status borders with the Palestinian Authority (PA).
Sharon stated that regarding security, Israel and Israel alone will determine security needs, and on this there will be no compromise as is his policy today.
Speaking of his past accomplishments, the prime minister stated he has been serving the country for 60 years and hopes to continue doing so as long as he is able.
Multi-Pronged Hizbullah Attack
on Northern Israel
18:24 Nov 21, '05 / 19 Cheshvan 5766
By Ezra HaLevi
In a massive offensive, Hizbullah terrorists fired Katyusha rockets and mortar shells at Israeli targets and infiltrated an IDF position in the Har Dov region Monday, wounding eleven, two seriously.
Dozens of Katyusha rockets were fired at the cities of Kiryat Shemona, Metulah and other targets in the Galilee throughout Monday afternoon and evening. In addition, two Hizbullah terrorists infiltrated the IDF's Gladiola position, wounding four soldiers, including one seriously.
The injured soldiers were evacuated to Haifa's Rambam Hospital. Reports from the scene say the rocket attacks were particularly intense.
The attacks then continued later in the evening, with rockets launched at the Galilee city of Metulah, followed by an IDF Northern Command announcement for all residents of the northern Galilee to enter their bomb shelters. The Metulah attack directly struck a home.
Residents of nearby Kibbutz Snir, in the Galilee panhandle below Har Dov, took cover in their bomb shelters during the afternoon attack, as one rocket struck the kibbutz itself. As a precaution, children in three other Galilee kibbutzim were also rushed into bomb shelters due to the bombardment.
During the barrage, Israeli security forces exchanged fire with several terrorists near the Arab village of Rajar, which straddles the Israeli-Lebanese border. Four Hizbullah terrorists were killed in the exchange.
The IDF launched an air strike against a Hizbullah command post and surrounding roads used by the terrorists. Political commentators predict that Israel will not offer a stronger response than that already taken for fear that a more intense reaction would play into the hands of Hizbullah chief Sheikh Hassan Nasrallah, who would benefit politically from an escalated conflagration.
There has been a heightened alert along the northern border in recent days, with the reception of intelligence information pointing to planned Hizbullah attacks and kidnappings.
Ariel Sharon has quit the conservative Likud Party leaving it in taters. He takes with him most of the moderates leaving the party with little strength for those vying for it's leadership. He has taken from the Liberal Labor Party those like Shimon Peres who dramatically lost the leadership position to Peretz this past week. The coalition Sharon is forming will be hard to beat. Elections coming this March will most probably give Sharon, and his new coalition the victory. He will also have the mandate from the majority of secular Jews to bring the Road Map to a final conclusion. Judah and Samaria are next, and with Judah will go most of Jerusalem for a capital of the first ever Islamic Arab Palestinian State. A forever heathen kingdom that will be formed as the secular Jews giveaway most of the Holy Land for a peace that the Arabs only mock. A peace that is no peace, and is condemned by the God of the Bible as a compromise that unites the State of Israel with the great sin of the gentiles! Once most of Jerusalem is given away it will be of no matter to the secular Jews if the sovereignty they now have over the Temple Mount is also given to the Islamic heathen.
Folks, this Road Map peace plan is only going to lead the whole world to Armageddon! The faster it is implemented the faster will come the rapture of born again believers out of the great apostate whore of today's Christianity. The sooner that heathen kingdom is formed in the Holy Land the sooner will come the Islamic invasion of Ezekiel 38 & 39. Only the utter destruction of these Islamic invaders will open the door for a new Spiritual, Biblical, movement among a remnant of Jews in the Holy Land who will be mandated to build the Last Holy Jewish Temple on the Temple Mount. This event will lead in negotiations with the antichrist of a new peace plan for the Holy Land at the beginning of the Seven year Great Tribulation that ends in Armageddon.
The Road Map is not going to stop until it tears down the security walls now being constructed in Israel. This is what Ezekiel predicts! If the Road Map is truly the false peace that Ezekiel saw in his vision of Ezekiel 38 & 39, then the security fence is going to come down! Ezekiel was very specific in saying that when Islam attacks it will attack unwalled cities. Watch what happens to the security fence as negotiations continue to establish the Road Map. The foolish secular Jews are mesmerized in their own conceit that they can lead the world to peace without the Bible, or the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.
Peace is coming to the Holy Land, but it is coming the way God said it will come in the Bible. It will come through a remnant of Jews who will turn to the LORD Jesus Christ as their personal Redeemer / Messiah. They will build the Last Jewish Holy Temple in preparation for His return. All who can't submit to this coming King of the Jews will perish as Islam is predicted to perish forever from the Holy Land in Ezekiel 39. Armageddon at the end of the Great Tribulation will end of the times of the gentiles! The Jewish Kingdom (the next dispensation) at the Second Coming of Christ will become the reality.

Dead Sea Scroll to be Exhibited
for U.S. Audience
18:10 Nov 22, '05 / 20 Cheshvan 5766
By Debbie Berman
The longest scroll of the Dead Sea Scroll collection is slated for exhibition in the United States. It will go on display at a Jewish museum in Cleveland at the start of 2006.
The exhibition will include many ancient artifacts from the Israel Museum in Jerusalem and will highlight the 28-foot Temple Scroll, the longest of the Dead Sea Scrolls.
The Dead Sea Scrolls were publicly unveiled in 1949 at the Library of Congress in Washington, D.C. and are permanently housed at the Shrine of the Book wing [pictured above] of Jerusalem’s Israel Museum. While selected documents from the Dead Sea Scrolls have been previously displayed outside of Israel, this tour will grant North Americans the opportunity to view the popular documents for the first time in over 50 years. The Maltz Museum of Jewish Heritage in Beachwood, Cleveland will be the first stop of a tour that will include two additional North American museums yet to be announced.
The Dead Sea Scrolls are ancient manuscripts that were discovered between 1947 and 1956 in eleven caves near Khirbet Qumran, located on the northwestern shores of the Dead Sea. Some 800 documents were found, written in Hebrew, Aramaic and Greek. The scrolls are dated from the third century BCE to the first century CE and contain biblical, apocryphal, and sectarian texts. Scholars attribute the writing of the scrolls to the Essenes, a breakaway Jewish sect.
Israel Museum staff describe the historical significance of the scrolls as follows; “The discovery of the Dead Sea Scrolls represents a turning point in the study of the history of the Jewish people in ancient times, for never before has a literary treasure of such magnitude come to light. Thanks to these remarkable finds, our knowledge of Jewish society in the Land of Israel during the Hellenistic and Roman periods as well as the origins of rabbinical Judaism and early Christianity has been greatly enriched.”
The Dead Sea Scrolls are an amazing find at a critical time in the history of the Holy Land. The liberal higher critics were having a field day with their speculations as to how the Bible was written. The popular position was that the Bible was revised by later writers again, and again to make it look like it had predicted future events that the more recent writer had written into the text. The oldest Old Testament manuscripts before the scrolls were discovered were dated around 1000 AD, and so their speculative approach was lauded throughout liberal academia as being the only logical way to view the Bible. The Dead Sea Scrolls ended these revisionists theories forever. The Biblical texts were 1000 years older then the oldest Old Testament manuscripts, and they read exactly as they are translated in your Bible sitting on the mantle reads. There were no revisionists! The Bible was never rewritten. The Jewish scribes proved meticulous in transcribing each new copy of the Old Testament books. If they were this accurate going back 1000 years to around 100 years before the birth of Christ, it only stands to reason they were that accurate throughout the 1000 years preceding their work on what is now known as the Dead Sea Scrolls. That length of time would go back to the time when the original authors wrote their revelations from God. Folks, your Bible reads exactly as the prophets wrote it. There was no tampering with the text. There was no any age revisionists changing the text!
The Arabs hate the fact that the Bible is about the history of the Jews. It is about the history of the Holy Land. It makes no mention of Arabic history. They are just another insignificant group of gentiles who have no standing with the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. Mohamed wrote the Koran around the time when those oldest manuscripts before the Dead Sea Scrolls were written. Like the Arabian Nights he wrote a fairy tale that would make the Arabs believe they were the chosen of Allah. Islam today teaches that the Bible is a lie. It is the Koran that must be believed. Any criticism of the Koran by anyone results in death threats by the Islamic fanatics. Islam teaches all their children that all the blessings written in the Bible about the Jews is nothing more then a Zionist plot of revisionism. They teach their children that the Christian Christ is the greatest example of revisionism ever written. They teach that Christ was a prophet like Mohamed, but of a much lesser standing. The Christians did the same with the Christ of the New Testament as the Jews did with the Old Testament. They revised it over the years into saying what they wanted it to say.
God has a way of combating the lies ,men attribute to His word down through the ages. The Dead Sea Scrolls is just another example of how God controls the truth about His word to mankind. The main truth the Bible focuses on again and again is that through the Jews comes the redeemer who can forgive sin. It is only to Him that men can go to be saved. One of the many Old Testament Scrolls is that of Isaiah. The Dead Sea Isaiah Scroll translates into English exactly as it reads in your Bible today. It is exactly as the prophet Isaiah wrote it.

SHARON ON QUEST TO DRAW FINAL
PM accused of bringing tyranny, corruption and danger on Israel
Ariel Sharon wants to draw Israel's final borders with the Palestinians, Deputy Prime Minister Ehud Olmert said Tuesday adding that the Prime Minister had just met with a very senior Palestinian official in hopes of creating the "momentum," to "a better understanding."
Olmert, who has often voiced Sharon policies in advance of their adoption, spoke a day after Sharon quit his governing Likud Party and took a third of its Knesset Members with him to form a centrist political movement.
Former prime minister Binyamin Netanyahu, the favorite of six candidates to succeed Sharon as the leader of the once-dominant Likud, Tuesday branded his longtime party rival as a "dictator" who was leading Israel into tyranny and was endangering its security. He spoke even as the polls indicated that Sharon could gain as much as 37% of the popular vote compared to only 15% for the reconstituted Likud.
"Why is it important if the dictator has this kind of smile or that kind of sense of humor, if he's bringing you to tyranny and he's bringing you to corruption and he's endangering your security?"
Sharon has said the new party would follow the US-backed road map peace plan, which calls for the disarming of Palestinian terrorist groups as a precursor to the final status negotiations on settlements, borders and the establishment of a Palestinian state.
Sharon's new party may be named Kadima, Hebrew for "forward," Israel Radio reported Tuesday, as the prime minister's aides sought additional defections from existing factions. The tentative name Ahrayut Leumit, 'National Responsibility' was rejected on Monday.
IRAN RECEIVES WARHEAD
Nuke plans linked to Pakistani scientist Khan
International concern that Iran is seeking out supplies for and developing nuclear weapons were again confirmed on Friday after the UN atomic agency announced that Iran has received designs for encasing weapons-grade uranium in a missile warhead.
According to British daily The Guardian, this information was obtained from disgraced Pakistani scientist, Abdul Khan, who presided over a global network that sold black market nuclear weapons secrets to countries such as North Korea and Libya.
Officials learned at the same time that Iran had begun the conversion of uranium into gas, an important step to creating the enriched uranium needed to build bombs.
"You've given the world cause for concern," US State Department spokesman Adam Ereli said in Washington. "The international community doesn't like what it sees."
Iran pulled the curtain tighter around its increasingly suspicious nuclear activities on Sunday after its parliament approved a bill that allows the government to block intrusive inspections of Iran's facilities if the UN nuclear agency refers the Iranian program to the UN Security Council.
The measure was passed just days before the International Atomic Energy Agency board is due to consider referring Teheran to the UN Security Council for stiff sanctions.
The news coming from Israel is that the new Sharon government is all but a shoe- in to win the elections coming at the end of March. A victory will all but assure quick implantation of the blasphemous Road Map peace plan centered around the establishment of a forever heathen kingdom in the midst of the Holy Land. Everything is going against the Biblical plan for the next dispensation to be ushered in. The gentiles through the Road Map are establishing their will over the Holy Land. They have abandoned the Biblical plan ending in the Second Coming of the LORD Jesus Christ to the Holy Land, Jerusalem, and the Temple Mount as the King of the Jews. The Evangelical Bush White House has compromised with the atheistic Russians and Europeans by adopting their plan for the establishment of that forever heathen kingdom as the replacement for the promised Kingdom of Heaven. The quartet of the Russians, EU, UN, and USA are now controlling the future of the Holy Land with the Road Map.
Iran is stretching her muscles as Old Persia in the middle of all these plans for the Road Map. What the quartet does not know is that the Bible already tells us that it will be Persia who with the Islamic terrorists from the North and South that will end the Road Map peace plan with war! An Islamic Invasion into the mountains and fields of an Israel at rest under false pretenses. A secular Israel dwelling foolishly in the safety of a gentile Road Map guarantee. The security wall is predicted to be torn down so overconfident are the secular Jews that they have through their own wit established a peace without the need of going to God, or obeying the Bible.
Folks, the time has come. The latter days and years of Ezekiel's prophecy are upon us. This generation is plunging head long into Armageddon just as the Bible always said would happen.
Are You Ready?

EU REPORT CHIDES ISRAEL OVER EAST JERUSALEM
The European Union's diplomatic corps has sharply criticized Israel's policies in east Jerusalem, saying it is using settlements and the security fence to create a "de facto annexation of Palestinian land," American and British newspapers reported Friday.
In a yet-to-be-published report, the EU warns that the Israeli measures "are reducing the possibility of reaching a final-status agreement on Jerusalem that any Palestinian could accept," The New York Times reported.
Israeli officials caught wind of the expected negative report several weeks ago and some media accounts here suggest the Sharon government requested EU monitors at the Rafah border crossing in hopes it would head off publication of the report.
The pressure is on for the Jews to relinquish their sovereignty over East Jerusalem as the future capital of the Arab Palestinian coming kingdom. The secular Jews under the Sharon government are expected to comply. Sharon has already given away Jericho, and the Gaza. Next year it will be Judah and Samaria. The over 250,000 Independent Fundamental Jewish Settlers will be willingly sacrificed by the Jewish majority for the Road Map. With Judah will go East Jerusalem, and with East Jerusalem will go Jewish sovereignty over the Temple Mount. It is all part of the Road Map's future for the Holy Land. The Evangelical Bush White House knows Islam will settle for nothing less. They also know East Jerusalem, and the Temple Mount mean nothing to the secular Jews just as Jericho and the Gaza meant nothing to them. Bush went against the EU when he invaded Iraq. He would not compromise with these atheistic European leaders, and did what was right from a Biblical perspective. Saddam had to go! The US had the power, and the responsibility. Where everything went wrong was when Bush decided to compromise with these atheistic Europeans who had joined the Russians in producing the Road Map. Just the other day Colin Powel was exalting himself as the voice authoring this sad compromise with the devil. It matters not who authored this blasphemous plan for the future of the Holy Land. What matters is that George Bush signed on to it. He committed the United States to a deal with the devil. A heathen kingdom rather then Christ's Kingdom will be the future of the Holy Land. The Koran rather then the Bible will be the book of victory for Jerusalem, and the Temple Mount.
I am convinced the Road Map is the false peace of which Ezekiel speaks about in Ezekiel 38 & 39. A phony peace that lures secular Israel into a feeling of security. They lower their guard at a time when Ezekiel is warning them to be on guard!
7 Be thou prepared, and prepare for thyself, thou, and all thy company that are assembled unto thee, and be thou a guard unto them.
8 After many days thou shalt be visited: in the latter years thou shalt come into the land that is brought back from the sword, and is gathered out of many people, against the mountains of Israel, which have been always waste: but it is brought forth out of the nations, and they shall dwell safely all of them.
It is the Road Map that is preparing the way for the need of Ezekiel's warning. It is this generation that is responsible to hear and respond! There is no excuse for Christian or Jew not to know what this Road Map is about. The secular majority is forcing their will on the world for the future of the Holy Land. Their future visions ignore both God and His Bible! They plan in a way to block the coming Biblical Kingdom. The Evangelical Bush White House is blind to what it signed on. Their superficial Christianity has only made them the dupes of the devil. The entire Evangelical community seems both deaf and dumb when it comes to discerning the times in which we live. They talk of the rapture and the end of the Age, but then act as if the Road Map is of no consequence. Turning over the Temple Mount to the Islamic heathen is the greatest issue on the Christian and Jewish table today. The spiritual minority should be exclaiming Ezekiel's warning to this blasphemous generation.
Judgment is coming. It is coming to the EU and UN. It is coming to the Russians. It is coming to the USA. It is coming to the Holy Land, Jerusalem, and the Temple Mount. It is not that this generation has been warned. The issue is that they did absolutely nothing when they heard.

This Sabbath: "Most Jews Ever in
13:43 Nov 25, '05 / 23 Cheshvan 5766
By Ezra HaLevi
The Jewish community in Hevron is expecting more guests this Sabbath than any previous Sabbath in the history of the renewed Jewish presence in the City of the Patriarchs.
Thousands descend upon Hevron each year on the Sabbath corresponding with Parshat Chayei Sarah, the Torah portion dealing with Abraham's purchase of the Cave of the Patriarchs as a burial-place for his beloved wife Sarah.
Though often described as "contested" in the international press, the purchase of the Tomb of the Patriarchs is documented, in detail, in Genesis 23, which will be read Saturday morning by Jewish worshippers.
Abraham was offered the cave at no charge by the local Hittite population in Hevron 3,000 years ago, but insisted on paying for it to ensure that the ownership of the property would not be contested in future generations.
According to Moshe Ben-Zimra, a Hevron resident busy with logistical preparations for the coming Sabbath, there has been an unprecedented interest in attending this year's Shabbat Hevron. "I estimate that that this Sabbath in Hevron will be the largest ever known since the time of Abraham," he said.
Visitors will be housed in school dormitories and in every room of families' homes in the adjacent city of Kiryat Arba.
"Families can be heard on the streets discussing how many people they are hosting for Shabbat – usually around 15 or twenty," Kiryat Arba resident Michael Pollack told Arutz-7. "The stores are all packed and Shabbat supplies are on sale in a show of appreciation to the visitors. Tents are also popping up all around town."
The Egged bus company is providing extended service to Hevron from both Jerusalem and Be'er Sheva throughout Friday and after the Sabbath ends Saturday evening.
All areas of the Tomb of the Patriarchs will be open to Jewish worshippers during the course of the Sabbath. Usually, the Hall of Isaac and Rebecca is used as a mosque by local Arabs, but it is open to Jews seven days a year. Tours of Hevron's various Jewish neighborhoods and historic sites will be provided as well
Not all Jews are out to give away most of the Holy Land to the heathen. Not all Christians are dumb about the blasphemous Road Map. It is up to the remnant to stand, and uphold the Bible standard. The Jewish remnant are yet to be redeemed. The Bible is clear about the 2 Jewish prophets, and the 144,000 Jews who will have settled the lands given of old to the tribes of Israel as being the first to be redeemed in these latter years. They will set the foundation for the coming Kingdom Age. It is the Jewish remnant that would be expected to honor the Bible. Jews such as those making this pilgrimage to the very first piece of the Land of Canaan that became Jewish. Their Biblical heritage is important. They would never consider giving such a gift as the Tomb of the Patriarchs to the heathen for any price.
Evangelical Christians of the United States seem unaffected by the Road Map that would create a forever heathen Kingdom in the midst of the Holy Land. The very place where the Bible says Christ will return. They seem to care nothing about the fact that the Evangelical White House is selling out our Christian heritage to the worst barbarian culture of our era for a phony peace that the heathen break daily. There is little difference between the secular Sharon government, and this Evangelical White House. It is just not heritage that is being shamed, but the God of the Bible's promises for the future of the entire world that is being flaunted. This has nothing to do with Republican, or Democrat. Who could even guess how terrible things would be if the liberal Democrats were leading the way? It has to do with the proof of the truthfulness of God in the past, and whether we believe He will be as truthful in our day.
The Bible says this is a world sold out to sin. The majority rule is not the place to seek truth. Freedom means nothing when it becomes the freedom to sin. Freedom only has meaning when we leave the crowd of sinners, and have the freedom to become part of the Biblical remnant found in every age. I doubt these freedom loving Jews who have made this pilgrimage to Hebron will draw much sympathy from the world when Sharon gives away Hebron to the Islamic Arabs as he continues to implement the Road Map. Their freedom to visit will never be allowed again once Islam assumes the sovereignty over this first piece of Jewish property in the Promised Land. Islam has already claimed the Tomb of the Patriarchs as a mosque. They only await the official sanctions to ban Jews forever from visiting this historical place.
The majority of Christians and Jews want the Road Map. It is only a small remnant that oppose. Friend, I can only pray you have the fortitude to leave the crowds on the road to Armageddon. I can only pray that you will come to the Christ of the Bible. The Christ of the remnant. The redeemer of the lost who go to Him for forgiveness from their sin. I can only pray that you have found your way to the remnant of our generation who seek truth rather then the failed lies of a sin filled majority.

Sharon Plans Massive Withdrawals

Reports are increasing that Prime Minister Sharon has drafted a plan for Israel's withdrawal from almost all of Judea and Samaria by 2008.
Middle East Newsline (MENL) reports in the name of "political sources" that Sharon has begun briefing senior U.S. officials of his intention to withdraw unilaterally from more than 95% of Judea and Samaria. Sharon is hoping to be elected Prime Minister for a third time - this time not in the Likud, however, but as head of his new Kadima Party.
One of the most valuable "acquisitions" of the Kadima Party, MK Chaim Ramon, formerly of Labor, said openly last week that Sharon will unilaterally withdraw to final borders in Judea and Samaria if Palestinian terror continues. IMRA reported that Ramon said this on a live interview on Channel 10's "London and Kirschenbaum" news program just hours after he announced his decision to join Sharon's Kadima.
Ramon explained that Sharon will keep his plans secret until the elections because he wants to give the Road Map a chance.
Many public figures said, both immediately before and after Sharon's decision to quit the Likud, that this decision stems from his desire to carry out dramatic diplomatic moves that he knows the Likud would not approve. Among those who have said this are Binyamin Netanyahu, former Ashkelon Mayor and long-time Sharon confidante Eli Landau, Likud ministers, and others.
The MENL report indicates that Sharon would seek a U.S. and international security presence in Judea and Samaria, as well as yet another commitment for the dismantling of Palestinian terrorist groups.
Sharon's reported plan is to order a unilateral withdrawal, at first, from more than 90% of Judea and Samaria, while retaining control over air space. The pullout would be accompanied by a pledge of an additional withdrawal, as well as full Palestinian independence, once the PA dismantles terrorist groups and maintains security cooperation with Israel. The MENL sources said a version of the plan has already been drafted by Israel's National Security Council.
Though Sharon has denied that he plans any further disengagements, he pledged last week to "lay the foundation for a peace in which we set the permanent borders of the state, while insisting on the dismantling of the terror organizations."
Be absolutely clear that the secular Jewish government under the Sharon leadership is going to give all of East Jerusalem including the Temple Mount to the defeated heathen for the capital of their forever kingdom. It is the only way the Road Map can continue. Be absolutely clear that this blasphemous plan is an affront to the God of the Bible. The God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. Never in the history of the world has such indignation for the God of the Bible been so boldly flaunted. The Evangelicals of the United States have joined in the indignation by continuing to support their Evangelical President who dedicated his last term in office to the accomplishment of this dastardly deed. Instead of rejoicing at the miraculous victory of the Jewish Army in 1967 that proved God is keeping His word as written the Bible about the Second coming of Christ to Jerusalem as the King of the Jews, they have done everything within their power to turn back the clock, and block all the promises made to this generation of the last days of the Church Age.
Judgment will be God's answer to all those who are so bold as to defy the Biblical future for the Holy Land. The gullible public that allows such leadership to continue are not without blame! Some Christians will be raptured in shame for not having discerned the times in which they live. They will appear before Christ naked for having been His enemy over this singly important issue of our day. Most other Christians will be left behind as part of the Great Apostate Whore of their making. They will suffer the horrors of the Great Tribulation ending in their total destruction at Armageddon!
21 For then shall be great tribulation , such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.
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.
The Jews are going to go into Great Tribulation for their sin. Their shame will be without equal as the Great God of the Bible reveals His power to this sorry generation. Only those washed clean in the blood of the Lamb will find consolation during this coming time of wrath. It will only be a small remnant that will survive this future God has planed for the Holy Land and the world. Only a few will offer acceptable sacrifices of righteousness when these days come upon mankind.
folks, I have no fear of the future! I am fully committed to the God of my righteousness as He reveled Himself in the Bible. He bought my pardon with His own precious blood. He does not lie. My shame is covered by His righteousness. I agree with the Christ of the Bible that He knows best how to bring a real peace to the Holy Land. I am a follower of this Christ who is the redeemer of all. You also can find the same sure hope for the future. It can only be found by coming to this Christ for redemption. There is no other!
1 Cor 4:12-16
12 And labour, working with our own hands: being reviled, we bless; being persecuted, we suffer it:
13 Being defamed, we intreat: we are made as the filth of the world, and are the offscouring of all things unto this day.
14 I write not these things to shame you, but as my beloved sons I warn you.
15 For though ye have ten thousand instructors in Christ, yet have ye not many fathers: for in Christ Jesus I have begotten you through the gospel.
16 Wherefore I beseech you, be ye followers of me.

IRAN OFFERS NORTH KOREA NUKES FOR OIL
According to the German daily Deir Spiegel, Iran has offered North Korea oil and natural gas in exchange for assistance in developing nuclear missiles, The Jerusalem Post reports. Army Radio has reported a senior Iranian government official traveling to North Korea in October to propose the deal, however it is not clear exactly what North Korea's response was. Israeli diplomatic sources re-iterated their warning on Saturday that Tehran's pursuit of the enriched uranium was not for "peaceful purposes" as it has claimed.
Oslo architect calls for his immediate Release
A jailed Fatah leader who is serving five life sentences for terrorist attacks against Israelis came out on top during Friday's party primaries for the upcoming Palestinian Authority elections. Marwan Barghouti, former head of the Tanzim youth wing of the PA's governing Fatah movement, has won almost half of the votes in the Ramallah district, leading to calls for his immediate release.
Yossi Beilin, head of Israel's dovish Meretz faction and architect of the Oslo Accords echoed Palestinian demands for Barghouti's clemency calling him a necessary figure to the peace process. However, Israeli's Foreign Minister HHHSilvan Shalom responded to Beilin's call on Saturday by reminding that Barghouti was responsible for the deaths of unknown amounts of Israelis.
"Barghouti is not in prison because of his political activities. He is in prison because of his terrorist activities; sometimes people forget it," a senior government official said on Saturday.
"Granting Barghouti clemency would set a dangerous precedent for Hamas members who might also succeed in the upcoming January Palestinian Legislative Council elections," he continued.
It is the heart of Islam that will condemn them when the wrath of God is manifested once more on behalf of the Holy Land. This present miraculous Third Exodus of Jews back to their Promised Land is not going to be turned back. The God of the Bible has committed Himself to this present Exodus, and He will not allow the gentile world to turn back the clock He has set into motion.
Iran is feverously working on their atomic weapons and missile programs with only one thought, and that is to destroy the State of Israel. All the talk about the stop / start nuclear program is only propaganda. You can be sure Iran's scientists have not lost a single day of work while the European negotiators patted themselves on the back for supposed diplomatic successes. It is the hate for the Jews that drives Iran to defy the world community over this issue. The heart of Islamic Iran is fixed. There is no hope of repentance. The Bible already predicts judgment is coming for these hard hearted heathen who would defy the God of the Bible in their hate for the Jews.
Only the Palestinian Arabs show greater defiance of the God of the Bible in the warped world of Islam. The majority are showing their preference for the next Palestinian government that will lead the Arabs into their own kingdom in the midst of the Holy Land. A convicted murderer of Israeli men, woman, and children! A man with a five lifetime sentence for those murders! What a statement that is in the face of the blasphemous Road Map, and world opinion.
God is not going to give up on His plan to change dispensations. He is going to usher in the Kingdom Age despite all attempts to thwart what He is doing. The LORD Jesus Christ is coming again as the King of Glory to the Holy Land, Jerusalem, and the Temple Mount. The more God forces His holy will on this generation of sin; The more hard the unrepentant hearts become, and the greater the resistance from Islam! The only end can be the total destruction of Islam in the Holy Land. God has done this before, and the bible says He is going to do it again.
7 And Pharaoh's servants said unto him, How long shall this man be a snare unto us? let the men go, that they may serve the LORD their God: knowest thou not yet that Egypt is destroyed ?
Friend, I only pray you are trusting in the Holy Christ of the Bible for your salvation. Just as Islam is condemned for their unbelief so also will all gentiles not trusting in the Jewish Christ of the Bible be destroyed. Dispensational change means God is going to focus on His chosen people once again. The offer of salvation is predicted to break the hardened hearts of many Jews as dispensational change takes place. Woe to all who will resist God's Holy Will for His future plans over the Holy Land. Soon both Israel, and the heathen shall know the power of the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob in this generation.
