Twin explosions on 2 buses in Be'er Sheva; many said hurt
By Nir Hasson, Haaretz Correspondent, Haaretz Service and Agencies
Two explosions took place within minutes of each other Tuesday afternoon on two buses in the southern city of Be'er Sheva.
Many people were reported wounded in the blasts, which occurred at around 2:50 P.M. on Rager Boulevard, close to the city's municipal building.
Police and emergency personnel were at the scene soon after the blast.
According to paramedics at the scene of the blasts, at least 15 people were wounded. The extent of their injuries has not yet been ascertained.
Israel Radio said one bus was in flames, while windows were blown out of the second vehicle.
The radio report said Palestinian attackers had carried out an attack. The report couldn't immediately be confirmed.
Palestinian militants haven't carried out a suicide bombing inside Israel since March 14, when 11 people were killed in the port city of Ashdod.
IDF soldiers catch would-be suicide bomber at Erez Crossing
By Amos Harel, Haaretz Correspondent, and Agencies
Israel Defense Forces soldiers foiled a suicide attack Tuesday, when they prevented a Palestinian man carrying an explosive device in his trousers from passing through the Erez Crossing from the Gaza Strip into Israel.
The man initially aroused the suspicion of the troops at first stage of checks to pass through the crossing.
When the soldiers became aware that the man was holding false identification, they held him at gunpoint while they evacuated the entire terminal.
"Around 5 A.M. (0200 GMT), a suicide bomber arrived at the inspection sleeve at Erez Crossing. A soldier spotted him, he was isolated and his explosives belt was taken off him," a military spokeswoman said in Jerusalem.
The belt was different than any the IDF has dealt with before in that "it was sewn to resemble a pair of underpants," the spokeswoman said.
In January, a female Palestinian suicide bomber killed four Israelis when she blew herself up at the crossing.
Also Tuesday, IDF troops operating in the West Bank arrested 88 Palestinians, Israel Radio reported.
Among those detained were 24 people arrested in Hebron, seven detained in Bethlehem and seven who were arrested in Abu Dis, the radio said.
The Sharon retreat from the Gaza is having horrific effects in Israel. Soon, all of Islam will be embolden to invade satisfied that Allah is able to give them the victory. Already the Northern Islamic terrorists who will lead the invasion have followed up on the dual airplane explosions with another suicide attack in Russia. Israel has had a duplicate duel attack on their buses showing complicity between the Palestinian, and the Chechnyan terrorists. Another follow-up explosion in Israel was narrowly averted.
Militant Islam is coming together. The three pronged Last Jihad invasion described by Ezekiel is quickly coming into focus. The Northern "chief prince," or better translated "prince of Russia" Islamic terrorists are coming together. They are seemingly coordinating their attacks with the Palestinian terrorists. The Eastern Iranian prong is ready with rockets that can hit Tel Aviv. They are working hard to have a nuclear war head ready for use should it be needed. The Southern prong which Ezekiel identifies as Put (Libya) and Cush is active in the Sudan building their confidence in Allah as they exterminate the Christians.
Folks, the God of the Bible has given His children both Christians in the US, and Jews in Israel more then enough military power to control the heathen of this generation. That is a blessing for only imagine what Islam would do to both Christian and Jew if they had the power. The problem is that the politicians have taken the blessing, and turned it into a curse. They have left the heathen out maneuver them, and the whole world can see how Allah has been victorious over both Christian and Jew. It is a forgone conclusion that the Christians and Jews are going to give the Palestinians a State of their own. They have made Allah look all powerful through their milk toast politicking. The price is a glut of terrorism that will only increase as the embolden terrorists laugh at how easily they can intimidate the powder-puff politicians who represent the Bible.
We are moving to a time of phony peace. It will be all the more of calling the Oslo War the Oslo Peace Plan. The mantra of peace, peace when there is no peace will be the ultimate gift from the Road Map of which the first step is the retreat from Gaza. From Dan to Be'er Shiva was once a blessed phrase related to the bounty and blessings from the God of the Bible. Today, it only represents how far the arms of Allah can reach. Not because he has supernatural power, but because of blind, foolish Christian and Jewish politicians!

Attackers Storm Russian School
(CBS/AP) Attackers wearing suicide-bomb belts seized a Russian school in a region bordering Chechnya on Wednesday, taking hostage about 400 people — half of them children — and threatening to blow up the building. At least two people were killed, one of them a parent who resisted an attacker.
It was the first day of classes at the school, reports CBS News correspondent Richard Roth. The gunmen stormed a school-wide assembly and the deaths occurred in the chaos that followed. The attackers claim the building is booby-trapped and put small children at windows to discourage Russian security forces from considering a shootout.
The attack was the latest violence blamed on secessionist Chechen rebels, coming a day after a suicide bomber killed 10 people in the capital and a week after near-simultaneous explosions caused two Russian planes to crash, killing all 90 people on board.
President Vladimir Putin interrupted his working holiday in the Black Sea resort of Sochi and returned to Moscow. On arrival at the airport, he held an immediate meeting with the heads of Russia's Interior Ministry and Federal Security Service, the Interfax news agency said.
The school seizure began after a ceremony marking the first day of the Russian school year, when it was likely that many parents had accompanied their children to the facility which covers grades 1-11.
The ITAR-Tass news agency reported that hostage-takers released 15 children, but Ruslan Ayamov, spokesman for North Ossetia's Interior Ministry told The Associated Press that 12 children and one adult managed to escape after hiding in the building's boiler room. He denied that any hostages were released.
Gunfire broke out after the raid and at least two people were killed, including a father who had brought his child to the school and was shot trying to resist the attackers, said Fatima Khabolova, a spokeswoman for the regional parliament. She said most of the attackers were wearing suicide belts.
An attacker also was killed, and nine people were injured, including three teachers and two police officers, Polyansky said. More gunfire and several explosions were heard about three hours later, the Interfax news agency reported.
Suspicion in both the school attack and the Moscow bombing fell on Chechen rebels or their sympathizers, but there was no evidence of any direct link. "In essence, war has been declared on us, where the enemy is unseen and there is no front," Russian Defense Minister Sergei Ivanov said.
The latest violence also appears to be timed around last Sunday's presidential elections in Chechnya, a Kremlin-backed move aimed at undermining support for the insurgents by establishing a modicum of civil order in the war-shattered republic. The previous Chechen president, Akhmad Kadyrov, was killed along with more than 20 others in a bombing on May 9.
The school attackers demanded talks with regional officials and a well-known pediatrician, Leonid Roshal, who aided hostages during the deadly seizure of a Moscow theater in 2002, news reports said.
The hostage-takers also demanded the release of fighters detained over a series of attacks on police facilities in neighboring Ingushetia in June, the ITAR-Tass news agency reported, citing regional officials. Those well-coordinated raids killed more than 90 people.
There were 17 attackers, both male and female, Interfax said, citing Ismel Shaov, a regional spokesman for the Federal Security Service.
In television footage from outside the school in Beslan, a town about 10 miles north of the regional capital of Vladikavkaz, men in camouflage with heavy-caliber machine guns took up positions on the perimeter and other men in civilian dress with light automatic rifles paced nervously.
At one point, a girl in a floral print dress and a red bow in her hair ran around a corner apparently after fleeing from the school, her hand held by a flak-jacketed soldier, followed by an older woman. Russian news reports said about 50 students managed to escape, some after hiding in the school's boiler room during the raid.
"I was standing near the gates, music was playing when I saw three armed people running with guns, at first I though it was a joke, when they fired in the air and we fled," a teenage witness, Zarubek Tsumartov, said on Russian television.
The attack was the latest in a string of violence that has tormented Russians and plagued the government of Putin, who came to power in 2000 vowing to crush the Chechen rebels.
Terrorism fears in Russia have risen markedly following the plane crashes and the suicide bombing outside a Moscow subway station Tuesday night. The blast by a female attacker tore through a busy area between the station and a department store, killing 10 people and wounded more than 50.
A militant Muslim web site published a statement claiming responsibility for the bombing on behalf of the "Islambouli Brigades," a group that also claimed responsibility for the airliner crashes. The statements could not immediately be verified.
The statement said Tuesday's bombing was a blow against Putin, "who slaughtered Muslims time and again." Putin has refused to negotiate with rebels in predominantly Muslim Chechnya who have fought Russian forces for most of the past decade, saying they must be wiped out.
Several female suicide bombers allegedly connected with the rebels have caused carnage in Moscow and other Russian cities in a series of attacks in recent years.
Many of these women bombers are believed to be so-called "black widows," who have lost husbands or male relatives in the fighting that has gripped Chechnya for most of the past decade. Investigators of the plane crashes are seeking information about two Chechen women believed to have been aboard — one on each plane.

Open your eyes, and see what the "chief prince" of Ezekiel 38 & 39 is doing in preparation for the eventual Islamic invasion of Israel. These are the most vicious of all the terrorist groups recently coming on the historic scene. They make both Ben Laden and Arafat seem mild. It is women gone animalistic that makes these terrorists the worst. The "Black Widows" show the depravity of womanhood given over to animalistic Satanic influence. These woman are without honor! They have let hate turn them from being mothers to being the most filthy bile sin can produce. This is a culture sold out to the author of Islam. Watch them, and see the fruits of Satan. They are the first fruits of the future culture coming with the antichrist. The beast from the sin filled totally depraved mind is being released. Look what it has done to the woman! Only imagine how it will manifest itself under the leadership of the antichrist!
This Moslems hate for the atheistic Russians is obvious. Increase that hate ten-fold when it will be poured upon the Jews. These horrific attacks are going to increase. Each will surpass the last in viciousness. New methods of torture such as the world has ever known are coming from these depraved cultures now released upon planet earth. A foundation is being laid down for the antichrist. He must come before the LORD Jesus Christ returns.
Today, Arafat went to Be'er Sheba, and said "we will march toward Jerusalem." "we will sacrifice the blood of millions of martyrs." The Palestinians had been partying all night in ecstatic joy at the two Jewish busses bombed on Wednesday. Arafat is again sounding like the Islamic messiah as he rejoiced with the Be'er Sheba wild animals. The Sharon retreat from the Gaza under pressure from the gentile Road Map is the root of this latest release of depravity on the planet. The stage is being set up for the antichrist to make his entrance!

ISRAEL TURNS SIGHTS ON SYRIA
Hands US “concrete evidence” that Damascus planned Be’er Sheva attacks
Israel turned its sights on Syria in response to Tuesday’s bus bombing in the Negev town of Be'er Sheva, handing the Americans “concrete evidence” that the regime of President Bashar Assad in Damascus directly supported the twin suicide attacks that left 16 Israelis dead and nearly 100 injured.
"Syria is involved in terror all the time. Syria is responsible for acts of terrorism and granting patronage for terror, and therefore we view it as responsible the moment that those organizations receive direct orders from their headquarters in Damascus,” Foreign Minister Silvan Shalom told Israel Radio Thursday, just a day after the US and France tabled a motion at the United Nations Security Council calling for Syria to end its 30-year occupation of Lebanon.
Deputy Defense Minister Ze'ev Boim said Israel should consider military action against terrorist targets within Syria, Ha’aretz reported. "There is no immunity, and if there is a need, we will act," Boim warned.
Less than a year ago, the Israel Air Force attacked an abandoned Islamic Jihad training base near to the Syrian capital in response to a deadly bombing at a popular Maxim seaside restaurant in Haifa, which left 21 people dead. Israel said that the air raid, in which one security guard was injured, was a clear message to Syria to stop sponsoring Palestinian terror. It was the deepest strike into Syrian territory since the 1973 war.
According to Israeli sources Moussa Abu Marzook, a senior Damascus-based Hamas official who is wanted by the US, was the man behind the bombings. News reports have also linked Hamas ‘political’ leader Khaled Mashal, who is also based in the Syrian capital. The Syrian government, however, has defended shielding the Damascus Hamas bureau as a “press office.”
Defense Minister Shaul Mofaz said Wednesday that "a large portion of the terrorism in the territories" comes from Hamas headquarters in Damascus and Hizb’Allah in Lebanon. You cannot separate what happened in Be'er Sheva from what is going on in Lebanon."
Senior Hamas official Osama Hamdan Thursday cautioned Israel that the militant Islamic organization "will not sit idly by" if Israeli forces attempt to assassinate its leaders abroad. Hamas has said in the past that it would view such an attack as a "green light" to attack Jewish targets overseas.
US, FRANCE TELL SYRIA TO GET OUT OF LEBANON
The US and France introduced a United Nations Security Council resolution Wednesday demanding that 20,000 Syrian troops "withdraw without delay" from Lebanon and that Syria stop meddling in the country's November elections, The Washington Post reports. The resolution also calls on Lebanon to disband and disarm all militias, including Hizb’Allah. US Ambassador to the UN John Danforth told the council that he will press for a vote on the resolution Thursday.
I am convinced Syria will fall! The reason for this is looking at those Islamic nations not mentioned in the Last Jihad Islamic invasion of Israel found in Ezekiel 38 & 39. None of Israel's immediate neighbors are mentioned. Syria is not there along with Lebanon as part of the Northern prong. Jordan is not included with the Eastern invasion force. And, Egypt is also not mentioned as part of the Southern wing of the invaders. This all seems due to the fact that Israel is said to be dwelling in safety just before the invasion begins. A phony peace is next on the list as the countdown to invasion continues. The quickest way to this phony peace would be the fall of the present Damascus based government. It would bring about the pacification of both Syria and Lebanon.
There has long been a dream of the secular Jews of this generation that if they could get peace with their immediate Islamic neighbors the rest of Islam would be far enough removed to not be a problem anymore. The dream is now tied to the gentile Road Map. It seems Statehood for the Palestinians with a divided Jerusalem for their capital, and the most probable giveaway of the Temple Mount will be how this secular peace will work out. Ariel Sharon seems to be the Judas who will accomplish this feat. He is selling out the God of the Bible for the praise and glory men will bestow on him as the world's greatest peace maker. He will be the hero of every liberal Jew, and many conservatives as well. This will all be accomplished over the sacrifice of the Independent Fundamental Jewish Settlers most of whom will need be uprooted from the Gaza, Judah, and Samaria so the Palestinian State can be formed. This peace plan is a plan that excludes any need, or consideration for God. It will be the joy of the European Union which is working hard to prove to the world we need no mention of God when it comes to international affairs. Ariel Sharon will point the way riding on the gentile Road Map for all the secular world to follow.
This is not the Biblical plan for the future of the Holy Land, Jerusalem, or the Temple Mount. The fall of Syria like the fall of Iraq has a judgment on sin aspect that is directly related to God and the Bible, but the greater sin of the politicians of this generation will turn this blessing into a curse! Iraq is on the road to Islamic democracy without need for the God of the Bible. The result will soon be the birth of the city of Babylon as revealed in Revelation Chapter 18. The home of every source of filthy sin during the Great Tribulation.
2 And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird.
It is this democratized Islam that the Syrians will most likely find themselves in those last days. They will have friendly relations with the democratized secular Jews who will be resisting the back to the Bible movement taking place among the remnant. Democracy without the God of the Bible at the center will only result in a habitation for devils! Men are never going to get it right! Only the LORD Jesus Christ has all the right answers. Only the coming Jewish Kingdom to the Holy Land, Jerusalem, and the Temple Mount is the right answer as revealed in the Bible. Syria apparently does not join the Last Jihad disaster coming to Islam, but only jumps from the frying pan into the fire by leaving out the God of the Bible! It is the rejection of the LORD Jesus Christ that seals the fate of all of Islam whether militant or democratized. A future judgment is coming to the neighbors of Israel that will be as ferocious as any previously inflicted!

Russia: Al-Qaida involved in school attack; at least 340 dead
By News Agencies and Haaretz Service
BESLAN, Russia - Russian President Vladimir Putin called Saturday for a new approach to law enforcement in the wake of the school hostage crisis that killed more than 340 people, and pledged the reform would be in accordance with the nation's constitution.
Putin said international terrorists had declared "a full-scale war" against Russia, and that due to the collapse of the Soviet Union, the nation was weakened and unable to respond as effectively as it must.
The Russian premier flew to Beslan before dawn on Saturday, as smoke was still rising from the shattered school. Russian authorities, who have tried to prove that the battle with Chechnya is part of the international war on terror, have accused Al-Qaida of involvement in the Beslan attack, Army Radio reported.
"In general, we need to admit that we did not show an understanding of the complexities and dangers of the processes occurring in our own country and in the world," he said in a grim televised address to the nation.
"In any case, we couldn't adequately react ... We showed weakness, and weak people are beaten."
He noted in particular that Russia's borders had become porous and "unprotected from either West or East," and that corruption had pervaded the law enforcement agencies.
Putin called for mobilizing the nation before what he called the "common danger" of terrorism. He said measures would be taken to strengthen Russia's territorial integrity, create a more effective crisis management system, and overhaul the law enforcement organs.
In a visit at dead of night to the hospital in the town of Beslan, the scene of the drama not far from Chechnya, Putin warned separatist sympathizers they would be viewed as "accomplices of terrorism".
The death toll after Friday's bloody climax to the two-day siege included 155 school children, many of them held inside a gym by their captors, and confirmed the episode as the grimmest hostage-taking of modern times.
Officials confirmed for the first time media reports that the separatists had taken more than 1,000 people hostage when they stormed into the school on Wednesday.
A total of 26 militants, 10 of them Arabs according to Russian officials, had staged the hostage seizure, said Deputy Prosecutor-General Sergei Fridinsky. All had been killed.
"As a result of the terrorist acts, 322 people were killed, 155 of whom were children I think the death toll will rise, but probably not very much," Fridinsky said.
Putin said he had ordered Beslan and the surrounding region of North Ossetia to be sealed off in follow-up operations by security forces.
"One of the tasks pursued by the terrorists was to stoke ethnic hatred, to blow up the whole of our North Caucasus," he told security officials. ...
Barbarian has taken on new vistas of comprehension now that this generation of Islam has put it into practice. Oh, those little innocent children! I cringe at what these barbarians will do to the Jewish children of Israel when they are able. They are coming! Their barbarianism will drive them to do their worst to those they hate the most. Invasion Israel is on their compass. It will be soon!
The countdown to the coming Islamic Invasion of Israel is now in the final stage. The Northern Islamic Russian Prince is breaking free from the King of the North. The Last Jihad 3-peonged invasion of Ezekiel 38 & 39 seems to be the event that begins the Great Tribulation. This chief prince of the Gog is destroyed on the mountains and in the fields of the Land of Israel according to Ezekiel 39. This judgment act of God will end Islamic influence forever over the Holy Land, and open the door to the building of the Last Jewish Temple. The antichrist will be prone to a peace treaty with Israel after such a demonstration of God's power rather then mounting an invasion of his own. He breaks that treaty in a short 3-1/2 years. That will be long enough for the Two Witnesses and the 144,000 Jews to build the Temple with established kosher worship taking place. At the midpoint of the Great Tribulation the antichrist sits on the throne in the Last Jewish Temple that will have been built for the coming Messiah. Russia itself has a strong destructive roll to play during the final days of the Great Tribulation. This King of the North rebels against the powerful antichrist who will be King of the Western world controlling the economy of the entire world. The great Russian Bear swoops down into the Holy Land as described in both Daniel and Zechariah. The King of the South pushes first, but the Russians pass right on through the Holy Land conquering all that the King of the South possesses. This causes the antichrist to retreat from the Holy Land. It allows the spiritual Jews who built the Temple, and then had to flee into the wilderness because of the antichrist to return. They cleanse the Temple in preparation for the return of Christ. They manage to hold off the Russian invaders from the Temple Mount on that last day even though half the city is being ravaged by the Russians.
The Russian Bear will be merciless in the treatment of the Jews who survived the torturous rule of the antichrist over the last 3-1/2 years of the Great Tribulation. A final revival among the Jews takes place during those last perilous days. Many Jews join their brothers who are preparing the Temple for the return of the LORD Jesus Christ. The battle of Armageddon will be fully staged in the valley of Megiddo. The King of the East will have crossed the dried up Euphrates River crossing the lands formerly occupied by the Islamic, Arab, Iranian, Persians. The city of Babylon (capital of Iraq) will have fallen in one single day. The King of the East will have his billion plus man army deployed, and ready to attack. The Russian Bear will turn from Jerusalem to engage this new danger. The antichrist will stand with what power is left in the Western world after 7 years of tribulation. It is then that the LORD Jesus Christ returns to the Mount of Olives. The faithful Jews flee into the Valley of the Mountains formed when His feet touch the Mount of Olives. Judgment comes to planet earth! Christ fights the nations gathered for Armageddon, and they are utterly destroyed! The LORD Jesus Christ then goes to the Temple, sits on the throne, and becomes King over all the earth!
The Great Tribulation starts with the utter destruction judgment on Islam, but it ends with the utter destruction of the gentile nations as a judgment over the entire planet. The only issue is total submission to the LORD Jesus Christ as King of the Jews. All who reject Christ are terminated! The gift of life is taken away, and replaced with eternal condemnation. Friend, do not think lightly about being born again! Be certain you do not flock to the many false christs being presented today by the Apostate Christian Church. It is only the Jewish Christ/Messiah as presented in the Bible who can save. All other christs will lead to judgment!

Child Martyrom Returns to PA Television
19:45 Sep 05, '04 / 19 Elul 5764
An alarming television segment strongly promoting child “martyrdom” has returned to official Palestinian Authority TV.
The clip has been aired repeatedly in recent weeks after being taken off the air over a year ago following widespread outrage.
At a US Senate Hearing in October 2003, Director of Palestinian Media Watch (PMW) Itamar Marcus displayed extensive documentary evidence that the PA was indoctrinating children to aspire to heroic death as “Shahids” (martyrs for Allah).
Since then, many PA TV clips that encouraged children to seek martyrdom through involvement with terrorism were removed. The removal was ostensibly due to the inability of the PA representative at the Senate hearing to defend the practice, accompanied by extensive outrage from both the print and TV media.
One such clip, which presented a child's death in combat as "sweet," because it was Death for Allah (Shahada), was aired regularly up to the period of condemnations following the October, 2003 Senate hearings.
The clip was taken out of PA TV’s rotation and was not aired for almost a year. Suddenly, according to PMW, the clip is being broadcast again – at least three times in the last two weeks.
The segment, known as thee "Farewell Letter" clip, features an Arab child writing a farewell letter to his parents, glorifying his desire to die. The child then goes out to the combat zone, where he is shot and achieves his death wish. As he falls in death, the words of his letter are sung twice: "How sweet is Shahada (Death for Allah) when I embrace you, my land."
"The revival of this clip now may be an indication that the PA, after having its image blackened due to its involvement in suicide terror, wants to portray itself as the victim by having large numbers of dead and injured children to report to the press,” says Itamar Marcus.
The following is the text of the farewell letter sung during the segment:
"Do not be sad, my dear,
And do not cry over my parting,
My dear father,
For my country, Shahada [Death for Allah].
Do not be sad, my dear
And do not cry over my parting,
My dear father,
For my country, I will sacrifice myself!"
[Scenes of children joining violence against soldiers, the boy running with his friends, throwing stones ...]
The letter continues:
"With determination and desire
I long to approach...."
[The boy is shot in his chest and falls to the ground.]
The letter continues:
"How sweet is Shahada [death for Allah]
When I embrace you, my land!"
[Here the boy's mother is seen crying.]
The letter continues:
"My beloved, my mother, My most dear,
Be joyous over my blood and do not cry for me."
[Aired on PA TV Aug. 23, 26, 31, 2004, Translated by PMW]
“The message of this song to Palestinian children is clear,” says Marcus. “[It is that] it should be a child's wish and goal to die in confrontations with Israel, as this death is ‘sweet’.”
PMW’s web site features several other examples of PA TV’s indoctrination of children to pursue martyrdom through joining the terrorist assault on Israel.
Molech is the pagan god of child sacrifice. It was usually built of bronze. It was portrayed in a cross-legged sitting position with arms outstretched. A great fire was built in the pit formed by the crossed-legs. When the bronze arms glowed red the sacrifice was ready. It was usually the parents who cast their unwanted babies into the arms of Molech. It was taught this would bring prosperity to the family. It was the first form of abortion. It lightened the financial burden to barbarian pagan families in a socially acceptable way. It also was acceptable to sacrifice older children. Families under great duress were promised by the pagan priests that such devotion to Molech would being relief.
The sacrifice of children is barbarism at the worst. The world is still reeling from what the Islamic terrorists did in Russia to the children. Now, the Palestinian adults want to show they are even more barbaric in their willingness to sacrifice even their own children. We had thought the loping off of heads was barbarism at the worst, but these modern day conscienceless barbarians have showed the world there are depths of depravity not yet explored. The Palestinians have long sought to kill Jewish children. They know there is no greater hurt they can inflict on the Jews then by killing the children. They specifically target school busses. Their snipers even deliberately shot a baby in his stroller. The only reason why more Jewish children are not targets is because the Jews recognized the danger early, and took defensive measures. No longer do Jewish children share the playgrounds with the Palestinians. No longer are school busses without armor, or not escorted. Jewish security prevents the Palestinians from killing Jewish children so the Palestinians do second best by sacrificing their own. The intensity of their hate is the source of all this child sacrifice! They have turned themselves into animals! The mindless beast of the Jaws shark series has become reality in the Holy Land!
Child sacrifice is not new to the Holy Land. This filthy practice was condemned by the God of the Bible even before it could start. It was practiced by the pagan gentiles. God knew it would not be long before Jews would turn their backs on Him for the false promises of the barbarian gods. Moleck was among the worst. Not only were they who committed such abominations condemned, but even those who thought they would just stand on the sidelines saying and doing nothing.
Today, the Palestinians have condemned themselves in the Holy Land. They have not only condemned themselves, but have condemned all who would ignore what they have done to their children. This condemnation is ripe for any who would faint ignorance in their support of a Palestinian State as part of any peace plan for the Middle East. The practice of child sacrifice condemns all when the Holy Land is the place of such abomination. Jeremiah recorded the practice in his day. The Valley of Hinnom has long represented a picture of the depths of hell. The heathen, Islamic, Arab, Palestinians have brought hell back to the Holy Land in our generation. We must never be silent in the light of such a barbaric culture. Our Christian government should again demand the Palestinians stop these TV promotions for the practice of Molech worship by Islam in the Jewish Holy Land.
35 And they built the high places of Baal, which are in the valley of the son of Hinnom, to cause their sons and their daughters to pass through the fire unto Molech ; which I commanded them not, neither came it into my mind, that they should do this abomination, to cause Judah to sin.

Russia looks to Israel in the face of a gathering jihad

“There is a line connecting this weekend's mass murder in a school in North Ossetia, the ongoing genocide in Sudan, the bomb blasts on Madrid trains, the bombing of Istanbul synagogues and the suicide bombings in Be'er Sheva,” Ha’aretz journalist Ze’ev Schiff wrote in Sunday’s paper. “That line is Islamic - for the most part Arab - terrorism and it endangers world peace.”
In the post- 9/11 world, where many still view Israel as a greater threat to humanity than the concentration camps of North Korea or nuclear ambitions of Iran, the news that Arab jihadists made up at least 10 of the two dozen so-called Chechen freedom fighters that killed some 350 children, parents and teachers in a southern Russian school on Friday has generated shockwaves.
"We have to admit we showed no understanding of the danger of processes occurring in our own country and the world at large. We failed to react appropriately to them and, instead, displayed weakness,” President Vladimir Putin said in a somber televised address that followed a week of devastating terrorist attacks, including the loss of two domestic passenger aircraft and a Moscow subway blast, at the hands of three separate female suicide bombers. "And the weak are always beaten," he added.
In the Egyptian capital of Cairo a prominent Arab writer and television executive admitted on Saturday that Muslims worldwide are the main perpetrators of terrorism, and it is high time the Arab world acknowledge it.
"Our terrorist sons are an end-product of our corrupted culture," Abdulrahman al-Rashed, general manager of Al-Arabiya television wrote in his daily column in the pan-Arab pan-Arab Asharq Al-Awsat newspaper. The article ran under the headline, "The Painful Truth: All the World Terrorists are Muslims!"
Meanwhile in Israel, Prime Minister Ariel Sharon sent condolences to Russia, proposing on Sunday that Moscow and Jerusalem work together in the global fight against Islamic terror on the eve of scheduled talks with Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov.
According to an Israeli official quoted in The Jerusalem Post, President Putin's speech following the bloody end to the school seizure in Beslan marked a significant break from Russia's attempt in the past to separate Chechen terror from the wider stream of radicalized Islam, represented by al-Qaeda.
In the past, the official said, the Russians "isolated their problem, said it was a Russian problem that they can handle themselves. Now it seems they realize that in Chechnya, like here, you have local organizations supported from outside sources residing in places where they have immunity and sanctuary."
Although Lavrov was scheduled to arrive in Israel on Sunday evening to discuss the road map diplomatic plan together with the impending pullout from Gaza, Israel believes Russia is more interested now in opening dialogue on the war on terror.
Israel meanwhile is to propose unprecedented anti-terrorism security cooperation with Russia, including sharing of sensitive intelligence data. Sharon is also expected to offer to help rehabilitate a significant number of child victims of the hostage siege in Israel.
"Our countries are both in the crosshair of terrorism," Lavrov told Ha’aretz in advance of his trip last week, before the Beslan hostage tragedy began. "To fight this universal evil in a vigorous way is one of the areas where we can and should unite our efforts.”
"[The] fight against terrorism has nothing in common with [the] fight against Islam," he added. "To present this fight as a kind of a religious conflict or a clash of civilizations would only play into the hands of terrorists who in reality have neither national nor religious identity."
According to Ephraim Michaeli, former Israeli military attache to Russia, Moscow holds Israeli counter-terrorism capabilities in high esteem even though to date, co-operation has been limited.
"In this regard, it could be said that in the eyes of the Russians, we represent a superpower like the United States and Russia, no less than that," Michaeli told Army Radio on Monday.
But all the co-operation in the world will fail, Schiff warns, as long as “most members of the United Nations,” including Russia, “support ‘justified terrorism’ if it is carried out in the form of suicide bombings against Israeli civilians,” while turning a blind eye “to the fact that countries like Syria and Iran fund terror operations and harbor the culprits.”
“The massacre in North Ossetia,” Schiff concludes, “…shows that there is no ‘good’ or ‘bad’ terrorism.”
Israel is often described as the caged canary in the mineshaft of the world. As it goes for her, so too soon for everyone else. As Russia buries almost 500 killed in its bloodiest week of Chechen terror the question remains whether Moscow really believes what it says.
In the midst of building an Iranian nuclear reactor, which Tehran has openly said will furnish weapons to destroy the Jewish State – one wonders whether, despite their grief, the Russians fully understand yet.
The double standard used by Russia and the EU supporting Arafat and Palestinian terrorism has come home to roost on the Russians. World opinion has tied the hands of the Israeli's by suggesting that the Palestinian terrorists are victimized freedom fighters while the 9/11 terrorists are true terrorists. God has taught Russia a terrible lesson this past week. The Russians now realize that their support of the Palestinians has given the whole world the right to define the Chechnyan terrorists as freedom fighters also. Israel has long understood that the terrorism coming out of the Middle East is a world-wide blight. It is 100% Islamic, and overwhelmingly Arabic. It is clearly the Arabic mixed seed of Ishmael and Esau striving to overpower the seed of Jacob. The hate from cradle to grave of this generation of Arabs has turned them into barbaric animals who can snuff out the lives of innocent children with conscienceless expediency. These mad dogs will kill all who stand in their way as they strive for their ultimate goal of ethnically cleansing the Holy Land of Jews. This battle on the grandest scale is a battle between the Koran and the Bible. It is a battle between Allah and Jehovah. It is a battle between Mohamed and the LORD Jesus Christ. It is the battle over the Holy Land!
The jihad the Russians face is 100% Islamic. The terrorists who invaded the grade school had a disproportionate number of Arabs among them. The issue is an Islamic Federation North of the Caucasus Mountains. I don't know if such a federation will ever be formed, but I do know 100% of the Islamic hordes North of the Caucasus will flow over the mountains, and will be joined by 100% Turkish Moslems on their way to an invasion of Israel. I also know the stress between the Russians, and Islam will be relived because Russia will give it's blessings to the invaders. It may be good riddens, but in either case the Islamic invasion will be approved. The release of the Islamic "chief prince" from Russia is the beginning of the end for all Islamic influence over the Holy Land according to Ezekiel 38 & 39. This will open the door for a "Back to the Bible" movement (Two Witnesses of Revelation 11, and the 144,000 Jews of Revelation 7 & 14) in Israel to build the Last Jewish Temple on the Temple Mount!
The common complaint by Bible ignorant philosophers is that God is unfair to love Jacob and his seed while hating Esau and his seed! The truth is God offers His mercy freely to all. It was even offered to Pharaoh of Egypt. On the other hand, God has a perfect plan that can't be altered. That plan has always been the LORD Jesus Christ, and His sacrifice for sin! The problem comes when sin filled men try to stand in the way of God and His plan. Then what happens is the Omnipotent God begins to force His holy plan on the depraved sinner. The more God presses, the harder the heart of sin becomes. Is that being unfair? Pharaoh had to let the children of Israel go! Christ had to be born a Jew in Bethlehem for God's plan to continue successfully. Pharaoh was broken, but his pride would not allow him to submit to the God of the Bible. He could have submitted at any time, and he would have found mercy. But, the Bible records he rather died in his sin. The same is about to happen to this generation of Islam. The same is about to happen to this generation of gentiles. The Bible says a remnant of the Jews will find mercy, and God will establish the coming Jewish Kingdom with them! These Jews, and a few gentiles will submit to the LORD Jesus Christ with all their heart, all their soul, and all their might! The Bible wins the battle over the Holy Land, and the next dispensation will begin!
Friend, that same mercy is offered you right now! It is freely given because the LORD Jesus Christ paid the price for the forgiveness of your sin. Only your pride prevents you from coming to Him, and accepting His offer of salvation. Won't you come to him right now? Won't you let the God of all creation love you as He would in all His purity, all His righteousness, and all His holiness. Let Him show His mercy on you by washing away all your sin through the shed blood of the Biblical Christ. Only this Christ has the power to change your heart. Do not let your heart get only harder. Come to Christ, and find mercy!

China Threatens Internet Porn Merchants with Life
BEIJING (Reuters) - China has intensified its battle against Internet and mobile phone pornography by threatening distributors with life in prison, Xinhua news agency said.
A pornographic Web site that had been clicked on more than 250,000 times would be considered a "very severe" case that could warrant a life sentence for its producers, Xinhua said. It did not elaborate.
A china's communist rulers have gradually relaxed the puritanical rule they imposed when they swept to power in 1949, but sporadically try to crack down on the sex industry and are particularly nervous about pornography on the Internet
It is always sad when Christianity must be chastened by the heathen. The hate for purity is obvious in the statement about the "puritanical" rule of the Chinese government. I hate to be a spoil sport, but the LORD Jesus Christ is going to rule over the next dispensation with a righteous iron rod! During His reign pornographers will not receive life imprisonment, but the death penalty! They will not be permitted to spoil the perfect peace, and joy that will accompany the coming Kingdom age. It is no wonder the psalmist exhorts us to serve the LORD with fear, and rejoice with trembling. The puritanical rule of Christ will not permit the slightest infraction. Jesus is not bringing some milk toast dispensation. The great lesson is that men can live virtuous lives. Not sinless, because perfection only comes with death, or the rapture. It is the miraculous promise given the saved that someday we will be totally changed into the perfection of Christ. Mankind is about to be taught by the next dispensation that a life of Job can be reached by the masses under the right circumstances. Those circumstances come with the righteous rule of Christ.
The Chinese government has proved to the world in this one single area of pornography that higher standards of virtue can be put into practice. It is possible to lift an entire society to do what is right! The way it is done is by not making the penalty a slap on the wrist. The penalty for pornography in China now meets the severity of the crime. What happens in human government is that the penalty is not always applied evenly. This will not be the case when the LORD Jesus Christ rules. He is the perfect judge because He can see right into the heart! He will never make a wrong decision, or be bias in application of the penalty. His standards are absolutely perfect. Mankind is going to learn that a society can function with such standards, and with such penalties. Playboy type magazines witch were the springboard for today's pornography blight will never have an opportunity to be published during the coming dispensation. Such filth will never stain the perfection of the coming Kingdom where the iron rod of righteousness rules. The penalty will be death. The only recourse for the pornographer will be immediate repentance. Freedom of speech will fall on deaf ears because it will not be relative during the Kingdom Age. There will be only one freedom available in that day, and that will be the freedom of coming to Christ for mercy and forgiveness. There will be no other alternative!
There is no beer for our Christian soldiers in Iraq because the heathen standards again chasten us! This lukewarm Church must step aside so the world can be instructed again in Biblical righteousness. Make no mistake! The rapture is not about the victory of the Christian Church, but rather the spewing out of a bile passing itself off as righteous!
16 So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.
Make no mistake! Biblical righteousness is a serious matter. It defines sin, and defines the penalty for sin which is death! The only refuge for a sinner is the LORD Jesus Christ. Won't you come to Him for forgiveness? The only alternative is to face His rod of iron!

EU Official Learns
Something New About Disengagement
17:28 Sep 08, '04 / 22 Elul 5764
The Foreign Minister of Austria told Knesset Speaker Ruby Rivlin yesterday that she was not aware that the disengagement was not a part of the Road Map plan. Furthermore, she said, her country's support for the disengagement, and that of the entire European Union, is based on their perception that the plan is part of the Road Map.
The Road Map is supported by the Quartet - namely, the United States, Russia, the United Nations, and the European Union. It is based entirely on the idea of reaching a comprehensive and agreed-upon settlement of the dispute between Israel and the Palestinian Authority. In addition, it states that Israel need not withdraw from any areas until such time as the PA fulfills its obligations regarding an end to terrorism. It also stipulates reforms that the PA leadership must make in its government.
The disengagement plan, on the other hand, is totally unilateral in that it demands nothing of the PA leadership. It does not even claim to be a part of a comprehensive agreement, and involves not the transfer of control of Gaza, but rather the abandonment thereof.
Austria's Foreign Minister Dr. Benita Ferrero-Waldner met with Rivlin yesterday. Rivlin, who opposes the disengagement plan, told his guest that the plan is not a part of the Road Map "because of the fact that there is currently no partner with whom Israel can carry out it out, and the Palestinians have not yet fulfilled one condition laid out in the Road Map."
Ferrero-Waldner expressed great surprise upon hearing this, and said, "This is the first time I am hearing that the disengagement is not part of the Road Map." She said that no Israeli official ever told her this fact.
Minister Ferrero-Waldner is to assume the post of EU Foreign Affairs Commissioner one month from now.
Do not let all this diplomatic prattle confuse what is happening. The Gaza retreat that is playing into the hands of the terrorists, and giving Arafat new life is very much a part of the Road Map. Ariel Sharon is withdrawing only because of the pressure from the Bush Administration. He must demonstrate some proof Israel really wants a Godless gentile peace. This Road Map like the withdrawal are still only words, but look what those words have produced on the reality level. The Hamas terrorists supported by Iran are now using the Gaza as a missile launching pad. The IDF has been forced to make raid after raid into the Gaza to control this new menace. The plan is to drive out the neighboring Jews from this first autonomic Islamic, Arab, Palestinian parcel of the Holy Land through indiscriminant rocket fire. Hamas knows it has a Ho-Chi -Min supply route through Islamic Egypt right into the Gaza. It will only be a matter of time before the Jews will have to retreat again from adjoining land providing new launching sites with each withdrawal.
The Road Map promises the terrorists a State of their own to launch all kinds of terror weapons against the Jews with no fear of reprisal raids that would cross territorial sovereignty boarders protected by international law. Just these words about the Road Map have encouraged the Chechnyan terrorists who want an Islamic Federation North of the Caucasus to murder over 300 innocent civilians mostly children. It is only the words Road Map which have produced such horrors. We can't imagine what the actual implementation of these words will bring in new horrors all over the world.
Islam has raised a generation on hate. They have produced a generation of conscienceless animals. Islam is committed to force the Koran on the world with this generation. The Holy Land is the focus because it is the birthplace of the Bible. The overthrow of the Bible, and the Christian/Jewish God of the Bible is the declared war Islam has challenged their youth to accomplish. They are fully engaged. They are convinced they can replace the Bible with the Koran. Replace Jehovah with Allah. Replace the LORD Jesus Christ with Mohamed. And, just as the Sharon withdrawal has been turned into the Sharon retreat by Islam, so also will the gentile Road Map be turned into the retreat of the Bible believing world. The Mullahs will teach their youth that Allah is giving them the victory over the infidels against all odds, and the youth will believe it.
The only hope for this foolish world is that single hope that comes out of Zion! It is a hope limited to the next dispensation. The Bible beams with the knowledge of what is coming. "Oh that the salvation of Israel were come out of Zion!" Only then shall Jacob rejoice, and Israel shall be glad! A foolish generation shall be brought to an end, and joy shall return to planet earth.

US Court Turns Down "Jerusalem, Israel" Suit
13:34 Sep 09, '04 / 23 Elul 5764
The U.S. District Court in Washington, D.C. has found that United States consular offices in Israel need not register the birthplace of an American citizen born in Jerusalem as "Jerusalem, Israel," but merely as "Jerusalem."
Suits demanding that Jerusalem be listed as belonging to Israel were filed by Ari and Naomi Siegman Zivotofsky of Beit Shemesh on behalf of their infant son and by Dan and Jocelyn Odenheimer of Efrat on behalf of their minor child. The suits, filed against the U.S. Department of State and Secretary of State Colin Powell, were rejected yesterday by U.S. District Judge Gladys Kessler. The plaintiffs say they will appeal.
Both plaintiffs challenged Powell's failure to implement Section 214(d) of the 2003 Foreign Relations Authorization Act, Pub. L. 107-228, which requires the Department of State to list an individual's place of birth as "Jerusalem, Israel" upon request. The law states, "For purposes of the registration of birth, certification of nationality, or issuance of a passport of a United States citizen born in the city of Jerusalem, the Secretary shall, upon the request of the citizen or the citizen's legal guardian, record the place of birth as Israel."
Judge Kesser ruled that the plaintiffs have no standing to demand that this law be implemented because they have "sustained no injury in fact." The judge wrote that the "mere existence of a statute does not negate the requirement that the party seeking review must himself have suffered an injury." Plaintiff A. Zivotofsky later commented to Arutz-7, "Though I'm not a lawyer, this does seem bizarre; basically, the judge has rendered the law meaningless."
Judge Kessler also rejected the suit based on the grounds that it is a "non-justiciable political issue" and that the U.S. "does not recognize any sovereign over the city." She explained that the status of Jerusalem is "a hotly contested issue, one that has consumed policymakers in the United States and the Middle East for the past fifty years... Pursuant to the policy [that Jerusalem's final status has not yet been determined], United States citizens born in Jerusalem are identified on their passports with only their city of birth; no country of birth is listed, because the United States does not at this time recognize any sovereign over the city."
Attorney Mordechai Haller of Jerusalem said that by definition, the issue is certainly justiciable:
"An issue is non-justiciable either when there are no legal standards or norms that can lead the court to decide on it, or when it is a matter of government policy within the exclusive jurisdiction of another branch of government. This case, however, in which the law itself specifically mandates a course of action, goes beyond mere policy. It therefore is by definition a justiciable issue."
The defendants (Powell and the State Department) made three other points in their defense, but Judge Kessler did not relate to these claims.
The U.S. "Jerusalem Embassy Act of 1995" states that official U.S. policy toward Jerusalem is that the city should remain a united city in which the rights of all ethnic and religious groups are protected; that it should be recognized as the capital of the State of Israel; and that the U.S. Embassy should be established there no later than May 31, 1999. The Act also stipulates that 50% of the money used to acquire and maintain official US buildings abroad may not be spent if the Embassy has not been opened in Jerusalem by May 31, 1999. Contrary to public perception, the law does not grant the President the right to delay the opening of the Embassy for six months at a time, but rather to waive the 50% spending restriction if the Embassy is not built. Presidents Clinton and Bush have invoked the waiver every six months since the Act was legislated, and the Embassy has not been built.
God gave Israel soviernty over the entire city of Jerusalem during the Six Day War of 1967. It has been 37 years now, and the politicians have refused to acknowledge what God has done! There is no difference between refusing to acknowledge the Bible, and refusing to acknowledge who is the sovereign over the entire city of Jerusalem. It is all rejection of the God of the Bible! The politicians of this generation have taken the greatest miracle blessing since the resurrection of the LORD Jesus Christ, and turned it into a curse. This generation has as surly rejected Christ as the generation that put Him on the cross.
The God of the Bible has brought the Jews back to the Holy Land in this our generation. The Bible has long prophesied this would happen. It is all related to the Second Coming of the LORD Jesus Christ. That former generation mocked the Savior by putting a sign above the cross saying "The King of the Jews!" This generation mocks Him by refusing to acknowledge reality. It mocks Him by refusing to acknowledge that dispensational change has come to the Holy Land. It mocks Him by proposing to give the worst culture of hate on the planet a State of their own in God's Holy Land. The mocking continues with the proposal to Give the Palestinians a large part of Jerusalem for their capital! That part would certainly include the Temple Mount!
Friends, God will not be mocked by this generation! The LORD Jesus Christ is not coming back to be put on the cross once again. He is coming back as the LORD of hosts! He is coming back as the LORD mighty in battle. He is coming back to judge this generation for the same transgressions of that generation that crucified Him. The crowd is going to be cast into the Lake of Fire for what they did to God's only begotten Son. The days of longsuffering are about to end. The wrath of the Lamb is about to be poured out on this generation because they thought to mock the God of the Bible by mocking Jerusalem at this most critical time in history. Jerusalem will soon be known as "The City of Righteousness" "The Faithful City" "Zion." It will happen after those of this generation who forsake the LORD are consumed.
Have you acknowledged that the LORD Jesus Christ is coming again? Is the Holy Land, Jerusalem, and the Temple Mount precious to you? Are you excited that the King is coming to Jerusalem? I pray such is so with you. To all others there is a refuge, but only one. You must come to the Biblical Lord Jesus Christ for forgiveness of sin. To reject His offer of salvation, is to mock Him as those did while He was shedding His precious blood on Calvary. Such mockery this time will be answered catastrophically with the wrath of God.

First Wedding On Temple Mount
17:23 Sep 09, '04 / 23 Elul 5764
For possibly the first time in over 1,930 years, a Jewish wedding ceremony of sorts was held on the Temple Mount this afternoon. The groom, from a Jewish town in eastern Judea, placed a ring on his young bride's finger in front of a group of friends, and then recited the traditional blessing on the wine. Muslim Waqf officials, usually very vehement about not allowing Jewish prayers to be said at the site, sufficed with a weak protest. The couple's friends accompanied the new family with singing and dancing.
An aura of mystery surrounded the event. Students at the groom's yeshiva refused to answer questions about the ceremony - though it is known that a "follow-up" real wedding ceremony will be held this evening.
It is known that in the times of King Solomon, there was a gate called the Grooms' Gate - but this was a place for grooms to come and receive a blessing before or after their wedding. More recently, Noam and Elisheva Federman of Hevron were married just outside the Temple Mount, at the Mughrabim Gate entrance.
"Therefore will I offer in his tabernacle sacrifices of joy; I will sing, yea, I will sing praises unto the LORD." Yes, for the first time in 1930 years Jews have come to the site of the tabernacle of God with a sacrifice of joy singing praises unto the LORD. A young Jewish couple came to the site of the Temple of God with joy in their hearts. All this happened in the midst of the most hate filled culture on the planet. Suicide bombers would have greeted them had the Arab Palestinians culture known of this event. Yet, in the middle of all this hate for the Jews this couple managed to find joy! They fearlessly defied the enemies of God with an example that should stir the hearts of the Jewish people.
Christians should look hard at what God is doing in the Holy Land, Jerusalem, and on the Temple Mount. It is not the Jewish government that is seeing the light of the LORD, but Independent Fundamental Jewish hearts. It is not organized religion, but individuals standing by themselves saying "whom shall I fear" when I am set up on a rock. Especially when that rock is the one upon which the God of the Bible said to Solomon on this rock "build my house!"
David said there was one thing he desired of the LORD. That thing was to dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of his life. He explained his desire was to contemplate forever the beauty of the only perfect God of glory, and to have the privilege to inquire of Him in His Temple. I have seen the beauty of Montana close up as a missionary, but those majestic mountains can never compare to seeing the glory of God. Imagine living in the presents of the creator God without a six day imposed restriction, and being able to freely communicate with Him forever. It is more then a man can imagine. It certainly was more then what David could hope for, yet the God of the Bible confirms unto David that he will be set upon the rock of all his hopes and dreams. It is not an hallucination of paradise, but the very Word of the living God.
David, as a redeemed Jew, will be able to dwell in all purity, righteousness, and holiness with the God of his fathers. They will be friends! There will be no sin to sever this wondrous relationship with the holy God of the Bible. A far different desire does David, and all the soon to be redeemed have of heavenly paradise then do the sexual perverts of Islam. The contrast is striking.
The Temple Mount represents all that is pure, and righteous, and holy to a people seeking redemption. The white wedding dress represents those same ideals being presented to the world as a statement of fact. A virgin coming to marriage having saved her virtue for this one man of her troth. This young Jewish couple for the first time in 1930 years have come with joy, and presented themselves at the site of God's house where purity, righteousness, and holiness once dwelt. Imagine the joy, and singing when the LORD returns to His Last House the Bible says will be built on that very same site. It will not be an Islamic house of prostitution. It will be the house of the LORD. It will be His tabernacle that will bring Biblical righteousness back to planet earth. The fear of purity will not be an issue when the redeemed come into the presents of the God of the Bible. They will all have been washed clean in the blood of the Lamb!
13 And one of the elders answered, saying unto me, What are these which are arrayed in white robes? and whence came they?
14 And I said unto him, Sir, thou knowest. And he said to me, These are they which came out of great tribulation, and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb .
15 Therefore are they before the throne of God, and serve him day and night in his temple: and he that sitteth on the throne shall dwell among them.

IRAN RECRUITS NUCLEAR HUMAN SHILEDS
Iran is seeking volunteers to act as a massive human shield around Iran's Russian-built nuclear reactor in case of an Israeli or US military strike, the AP reports. According to a spokesperson from the Committee for the Commemoration of Martyrs of the Global Islamic Campaign, some 25,000 people have already signed up to the campaign to protect the Bushehr reactor in the south of the country.
U.S. official to visit Israel for talks on Iran's nuclear program
By Nathan Guttman and AP
U.S. Undersecretary of State John R. Bolton will arrive in Israel on Saturday for consultations on the state of Iran's nuclear program and on an upcoming International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) meeting
Bolton is scheduled to meet Foreign Minister Silvan Shalom and other senior officials, as part of an effort to give priority to the Iranian nuclear issue at the upcoming meeting of the United Nations Security Council.
Bolton attended two days of meetings with senior disarmament officials from the Group of Eight industrial countries in Geneva.
Washington wants the backing of the G-8 for its attempts to have the UN watchdog agency declare Iran in violation of the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty because of its program of enriching uranium that the U.S. suspects is part of a nuclear weapons program.
Such a vote by the IAEA board at its three-day meeting in Vienna, Austria, starting Monday, could lead to UN Security Council sanctions.
The European allies have indicated they want to hold off such a vote until the next meeting in November so they can let diplomacy work.
Diplomatic sources in Jerusalem assess that no compromise will be reached by Security Council members, and that a decision will be delayed until the group's next meeting in November.
Iran insists it only is interested in nuclear power, which can be created with lower levels of enrichment than the levels necessary for nuclear weapons. Iran is hoping the matter of its nuclear program will not top the IAEA's agenda, and that it will be able to continue with plans to enrich uranium.
Bolton said the U.S. would use "persuasive arguments" over the weekend in hopes of winning European support for UN Security Council action to keep Iran from developing nuclear weapons.
"There's no disagreement on our broad objective," Bolton said after two days of meetings with senior disarmament officials from the Group of Eight industrial countries.
The goal is "to ensure that Iran does not acquire a nuclear weapons capability and that is an objective shared by all of the G-8 countries," Bolton told reporters.
He said the U.S. has been narrowing differences with Britain, France and Germany on the tactic of bringing the issue before the Security Council, which the United States hopes to precipitate next week in a vote of the International Atomic Energy Agency.
"We have a ways to go," Bolton said. "We're going to keep our persuasive arguments running and we'll see what happens."
Bolton maintains that Iran "has concealed a large-scale, covert nuclear weapons program for over 18 years" but could avert any action by stopping suspect programs and opening up to inspection.
"If they have nothing to hide it's very easy to demonstrate," he said.
Russia has said it will continue to work with Iran on building its nuclear power program, but says it will ensure that its cooperation cannot contribute to a nuclear weapons program. Russia's position has been criticized by the United States.
The nuclear threat from Iran is the terrorist issue that must be given top priority once the elections are over. It should really be top priority today, but politics will give it a back seat until after November. I continue to watch for the phony, Godless, gentile peace that will be coming soon to Israel. I would not be surprised to see Sharon turn over all of Israel's nuclear weapons for a hand shake with the Iranians. I know Sharon has contemplated making the Middle East a nuclear free zone, and the end of this Iranian threat could just lead to such a peace treaty proposal.
[News Flash as I write: France, Germany, and Brittan have all agreed with the US that Iran must account for their nuclear program!]
Well, what a surprise! Folk's, don't be surprised if nuclear free zone for the Middle East becomes a front page news item. As long as I'm going out on a limb, don't be surprised if the separation security fence comes down! I say this because a literal interpretation of Ezekiel 38 & 39 would imply these events will take place. I doubt Islam would ever invade a nuclear armed Jewish State. I do not doubt Islam would lie about peace with the Jews. A nuclear free Middle East would change the power advantage to Islam. They do not have the technology, but they do have the numbers of animalistic barbarian invaders who would kill every last Jew in the Holy Land. They have raised this generation of hate for just that task. A generation of murderous liars looking for the opportunity to kill Jews.
Israel must first be lulled into believing that Islam will give them peace. It is when Israel is at rest, dwelling safely in un-walled cities, that the Bible says the hordes of Islam will launch a three pronged invasion aimed at the ethnic cleansing of all Jews from the Holy Land. The prey will be every man, woman, and child that is Jewish. I suspect the antichrist will be on the political scene as the Western world fails to do anything when the invasion takes place. Spain (Tarshish) along with Sheba and Dedan of the non-Moslem African continent speaking for the merchant interests of the Europeans ask with implied non-committal "Art thou come to take a spoil?" "Hast thou gathered thy company to take a prey?" As if some other peaceful motivation might explain this Islamic invasion into the Holy Land.
Iran as old Persia is the Eastern prong of the Biblically predicted Islamic invasion of the Holy Land in the latter years! Folk's those latter years have come to this generation! A phony Godless peace guaranteed by the gentile Western world seems next on the countdown to the Last Jihad Islamic invasion into the Holy Land. The aftermath will put the antichrist into power as the King of the West. The fury of God will destroy all Islamic influence over the Holy Land as the invaders are eradicated on the mountains of Israel. The antichrist will be prepared to make a new Holy Land peace treaty with his personal signature after this demonstration of God's power. He will agree to the building of the Last Jewish Temple on the Temple Mount! It will be another phony peace given by the father of lies, but it will not fool the God of the Bible who is preparing the Holy Land for the return of the LORD Jesus Christ!

PM Sharon Attacks Right-Wing for Alleged "Civil
12:25 Sep 12, '04 / 26 Elul 5764
The key is in the hands of the Prime Minister," said MK Aryeh Eldad (National Union). "If he refrains from trying to uproot Jewish communities, there won't be a threat of a civil war." Prime Minister Sharon, however, is on the offensive: " They won't scare me," he told his advisors, who "leaked" this to the media. "I won’t let them divide the nation... I call upon the [Yesha] residents to stop this thing."
This morning, at the start of the weekly Cabinet session, Sharon banged on the table and stridently declared, "We are witness to a grave campaign of incitement, with calls for a civil war. I view this with great gravity. ... I call upon the Defense Minister to employ all the necessary measures to stop the threats on IDF officers."
Sharon was referring to an incident that allegedly occurred two weeks ago in Gush Etzion in which a security officer who supervised the evacuation of an outpost in the Shomron was either threatened or otherwise made to feel unwelcome.
Nationalist camp leaders issued a public declaration two days ago in which they made no mention of a civil war. The declaration, signed by increasing numbers of public figures, states only, "We declare that the expulsion and uprooting are a national crime and a crime against humanity." It also calls upon all those involved in the "ethnic cleansing of the Jews from their homeland" not to take part in these acts, and upon the Government of Israel not to issue these "blatantly illegal orders that must not be given and must not be fulfilled," and to thus "prevent an irreversible split in the nation and the army."
Another point of contention between Sharon and the nationalist camp he so recently headed is a giant rally is planned for tonight in Jerusalem against the withdrawal. Some 100,000 people are expected to participate.
The rally will be preceded by a prayer rally at the Western Wall, beginning at 5:15 PM.
Sharon hinted his disapproval of the silence of some of the ministers in the fact of these efforts against Sharon's policies. "I expect the ministers to speak out on these issues," he said. Left unspoken was the fact that Finance Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's father and brother, and Education Minister Limor Livnat's brother, are signed on the declaration.
Responses to Sharon's accusations against the right-wing and their alleged calls for a civil war were fast and furious. NRP leader MK Effie Eitam said, "Sharon knows that the leaders of the struggle against the disengagement are against violence, but he prefers to use false propaganda in order to push broad sectors of the nation into the corner."
MK Aryeh Eldad (National Union) said that if a civil war erupts, the responsibility will be on Sharon's shoulders: "If it happens, he will be remembered in Jewish history as the one who caused it."
MK Uri Ariel (National Union) warned Sharon "not to trample all the democratic ideals on his way to disengagement. The pain of the right-wing is a genuine one, their protest is legitimate, and Sharon's attitude towards it is shameful and provocative."
Civil War is a fact when Sharon puts his withdrawal plan into operation. Sharon is positioning himself so when the war breaks out it will be the Independent Fundamental Jewish Settlers who will be blamed. It is the Settlers who are being forced out of their homes by Sharon. It is the Settlers who legally moved into the Yesha since 1967. It is the Settlers who have had the Sharon government abandon them for political expedience. And now, Sharon is saying when the inevitable Civil War breaks out it will be the fault of the Settlers? Over 250,000 Independent Fundamental Jewish Settlers have established full functioning communities over the last 37 years in the Gaza, Samaria, and Judah. Many of these communities were expansions of Jewish settlements already there even before 1967. These are not tent cities, but suburbia communities with schools, hospitals, and government offices. The politics have changed with the Bush administration backing of the gentile Road Map developed by Russia, the EU, and UN. It is the Jewish settlers who are being sacrificed for a gentile peace plan that can never work.
It always amazes me how the world takes the truth, and turns it into a lie! Sharon is successfully turning the Independent Fundamental Jewish Settler movement into the scourge of the earth. A people who can't even defend themselves with debate. Their very words of defense are now designated as "Civil War talk." Sharon would have their words of defense appear as words of defiance against the world body. The Road Map is a Godless gentile plan that defies the Biblical plan for the future of the Holy Land, and yet it is the Settlers who followed the Bible are now being persecuted for what they have done. It is a sad indictment on this generation that they can't identify the real enemy! I already know how this generation is going to respond the the Second Coming of the LORD Jesus Christ. This generation will demand Christ be crucified again for His words of righteousness. This time Christ is not coming as the suffering Savior. This time He is coming as the King of Glory.
Woe to this generation. It does not seek after clean hands or a pure heart! It is a generation that shall not receive the blessing of righteousness and salvation. This generation is about to meet the LORD of glory, and will be found wanting. Friend, you must break from this crowd. You must stand against the tide of this generation! You must stand against this Great Apostate Whore about to be left behind. You must come to the seed of David whom David also was required to receive the blessing of salvation. Today, we know the name of King David's seed who has no beginning or end. He is the LORD Jesus Christ the King of Glory. The LORD of hosts. The God of the whole earth. The Savior of of all who will come! Won't you come right now?

Opponents of Gaza Expulsion Protest in Downtown
00:51 Sep 13, '04 / 27 Elul 5764
Tens of thousands of protestors opposed to the expulsion of Jews from Gaza packed downtown Jerusalem tonight (Sunday), calling upon Prime Minister Ariel Sharon to heed the voice of the people.
“Tonight we won’t be hearing from politicians,” announced the master of ceremonies Chisdai Eliezer at tonight’s rally in downtown Jerusalem’s Zion Square, “tonight we will be hearing from people just like you and me, who are being threatened with expulsion from their homes and everything they have built.”
The demonstration centered in Zion Square, but large movie screened enabled supporters who flooded Jerusalem’s streets from across the country to see and hear what was going on.
Rabbi Yigal Kaminetsky, the chief Rabbi of Gaza, opened the event with a reminder to the tens of thousands of participants that there is a higher authority. “We have embarked on a struggle to win the hearts of the nation and to oppose the plan to withdraw from Gush Katif,” said Rabbi Kaminetsky, “and we must devote 100% of our efforts to averting the expulsion. But we must remember that there is One who is in charge of this world, and we are merely striving to help Him help us.”
The Rabbi, raising his voice and looking skyward, ended by quoting a verse from Psalms: “Save Your people and bless Your inheritance; tend them and sustain them forever (Psalms 28:9).”
Noam Namir, a young girl from the Gaza community of Neve Dekalim, elicited prolonged cheers and applause when she addressed Prime Minister Sharon, asking him how he could threaten to throw her out of her home in Israel after her grandmother was expelled from her home in Poland, her grandfather expelled from Spain, and her father exiled from the Sinai town of Yamit. “I don’t know how any Jewish soldier or police officer could bring themselves to throw my family and me out of our house,” said Namir, “how could they listen to such an order?”
Rabbi Chanan Porat followed the twelve-year-old Gush Katif resident, telling the crowd: “Noam Namir will overcome the Prime Minister!” Porat then read a prayer on behalf of the Jews of Judea, Samaria and Gaza.
Many protestors held banners reading,"Disengagement tears the nation apart” and “Sharon government – a government of destruction.” A handful of signs referred to Prime Minister Ariel Sharon’s refusal to heed the voices of his own party members, calling the Prime Minister a dictator. Similarly-styled placards bore pictures of Yonatan Bassi, who heads the Disengagement Administration, with the words “Head of the expulsion authority – we will not forgive.”
A major focus of the rally addressed the National Religious Party’s continued presence in the government coalition. Speakers called upon NRP officials to leave the government, insisting the party no longer has a place in the current coalition, considering the policies of Prime Minister Sharon. Many protestors held signs printed by the Tekumah party (now part of the National Union) calling upon NRP’s Minister Zevulun Orlev to leave the government immediately. A meeting of the NRP’s central committee is scheduled to take place Monday, in which the future of the party is to be decided.
All streets leading to Zion Square were packed with people as far as the eye could see; Yesha Council spokesman Yehoshua Mor-Yosef released an estimate that 70,000 protestors were present. Tonight’s rally was advertised far less than previous rallies.
From Zion Square, the throngs of protestors lit torches and marched down the Ben-Yehuda pedestrian mall, along King George Street, and toward the Prime Minister’s residence.
The Zion Square rally, along with the mass prayer service at the Western Wall, was covered live on Israel National Radio. The coverage will be rebroadcast throughout the evening.
Bible reading and prayer mark those who rallied at Zion Square. These are not redeemed Jews. They themselves admit they are still seeking redemption, but who will God go to first when redemption comes to the Jews? To the secular politicians who leave God out of all decision making, or the Independent Fundamental Jewish Settlers who look to the Bible for their future?
Civil War, and a divided nation is what is happening in Jerusalem. God is on record that this time He will not tolerate a divided Kingdom. When redemption comes, all Jews will be required to come to the King of glory. Those who would divide the Kingdom on that day will find death the answer to their calls of dissent. The LORD Jesus Christ as the LORD of hosts will be mighty in battle on that day. The King of glory is coming with a righteous rod (scepter) of iron. His rule will not be challenged! It will be the day of the remnant not the masses. It will be the day of the individuals who come one by one for circumcised hearts, and not a day for the crowd.
It is Christ who will wave the banner of unification. It will be the ensign under which all nations must rally, or be destroyed. There will not be a secular Israel, and a spiritual Judah. There will be no carnal Ephraim, and spiritual Judah to envy and vex each other. God is going to give them all one heart, and they will all submit to one Head. He will be the King of glory. The mighty God. The everlasting Father. The prince of peace. He is coming again to sit on the throne of David in the Holy Land, at Jerusalem, and on the Temple Mount! He is coming to establish His kingdom that will have no end! That Kingdom is coming with judgment on all who would divide, and justice for all who will submit. The Bible says it will be the zeal of the LORD of hosts who will perform this.
Friend, this is what is happening in the Holy Land during this our generation. The redemption of the Jews is coming. Ariel Sharon can't stop it. Islam can't stop it. The entire gentile world can't stop it. A united Kingdom is coming just as the Bible promises. All who enter will be of a circumcised heart. All will be born again! The Jews will never be divided into two Kingdoms again.

Former Justice Minister Calls For Army to
Abandon Jews in Gaza
18:10 Sep 14, '04 / 28 Elul 5764
The former Meretz official said that as far as he's concerned, Israel can withdraw its military forces from Gaza - and let the residents decide on their own if they want to remain there or not.
Former Justice Minister Amnon Rubenstein (Meretz) said today that as far as he's concerned, Israel can withdraw its military forces from Gaza - and let the residents decide on their own if they want to remain there or not.
Asked on Voice of Israel Radio today if he was in favor of a referendum on the disengagement issue, Rubenstein said that this would be a case of overkill: "To withdraw the IDF from Gaza, not only is a referendum not necessary, but it doesn't even require a Knesset vote. A Cabinet decision is sufficient."
Interviewer: "Yes, but we're talking not only about withdrawing the army, but about removing people from their homes."
Rubenstein: "Who said we have to forcibly remove the residents from their homes? It is sufficient just to pay them compensation, and to withdraw the army from Gaza, and that's it."
Interviewer: "What, we should just leave the residents there on their own?"
Rubenstein: "It's up to each individual to decide on his own if he wants to leave."
Interviewer: "--and they should just be left to fend with the Palestinians on their own?!"
Rubenstein (after a short pause): "I of course would advise all Israelis not to remain in areas that are under Arab control. I would advise every lover of democracy not to remain in such areas. But to use the army to force them out? I don't think this is necessary."
Rubenstein did say, however, that he sees nothing wrong with holding a referendum on the issue, "as long as it is decided by a regular majority. All these calls for a special majority are merely tricks designed to neutralize the Arab vote. This is not legitimate in my eyes." The interviewer did not ask why it is not legitimate to ensure that an issue of historic significance for the Jewish State is decided exclusively by Jews.

Last Update: 18:10 September 14, 2004
One side, the Settlers, pray and read the Bible at their rally. The other side, mostly liberal all secularized Jews, respond with venom, and a tortuous death sentence for every Independent Fundamental Jewish Settler. The hate for those who would strive for Biblical purity is enormous, and not limited to the Arabs. Do not mistake what this representative of the anti-settler Jews is saying. Put these Jewish Settler and their children in the cross-hairs of the terrorists because they are Biblically conservative. Let them die horrific deaths at the hands of Arafat because they have decided to follow the Bible rather then the politicians.
The whole world is becoming polarized, and that polarization is manifesting itself in the form of hate for the Bible. Even the most universally accepted portions like the ten commandments are subject to hate that goes far beyond normal discord. This hate drives those given over to total depravity to eradicate all Biblical righteousness from off the planet. The Church age is ending with the rapture, and soon only a remnant of Jews in Israel will remain standing for Biblical righteousness. Soon, the hate of the world will focus on these few holdouts who remain steadfast in prayer to the God of the Bible.
The light of righteousness shining in the darkness drives the totally depraved crowds into madness! It drives totally depraved Islamic terrorists to murder over 150 children with no remorse, and drives Jewish politicians to turn over the Settlers to such animals because they pray and quote the Bible!
Today, the politicians would have the world believe the Bible is evil! They would have us all believe that prayer to the God of the Bible is an exercise in pagan darkness not fit for a sophisticated society. These secularized politicians have taken the sweetness of salvation for the lost, and turned it into a bitter message that must be wiped off the planet.
The evil people have polluted the planet. Those who work out evil in their planning beds are now in control of Israeli politics. They have polluted the Holy Land. The prophet Micah has written all that needs be said to these evil men! The God of the Bible will eject them. This last Exodus is not for them! They will find no rest in this last return of the Jews to the Holy Land. Destruction for those who would do violence to the homes of the Settlers. Destruction to those who would oppress a man and his house! Destruction to those who would cast out woman and children from their pleasant houses, and in so doing take away the glory of the God of the Bible!
The end of these secularized politicians is fixed! Friend, the offer of salvation through the LORD Jesus Christ is still open for you. Won't you repent as a lost sinner, and come to Him for mercy? Won't you receive Christ today, and be the recipient of His grace? Won't you join the remnant that stands against the crowd? The remnant that has come to the light in an evil era. A remnant that reads the Bible, and prays?

POP: 6.8 MILLION, TOURISM UP 23%
6.8 million people currently live in Israel, 5.5 million (81%) of them Jewish, according to a Central Bureau of Statistics census published on the eve of Rosh Hashana, accounting for 40% of the 13 million Jews worldwide. Israel's population rose by 1.8% in the past year, the CBS said by more than 100,000 people. Furthermore 22,000 new immigrants arrived – half of them from the former Soviet Union. Meanwhile tourism increased by 23 percent in 2003, a reversal of a slump that began with the outbreak of the Palestinian intifada four years ago this month. Most visitors came from the United States.
It is a New Year for the Bible, and for the Jews God has brought back to the Holy Land. It will soon be 38 years since God gave the Jews soviernty over the Temple Mount. Instead of talking about building the Last Jewish Temple as the Bible commands, they are talking about giving the Gaza back to Arafat and his thugs. That direction will only lead to the give back of the Temple Mount! Imagine Joshua pulling stakes because the gentiles didn't like the Jews in Canaan. What a calamity that would have been after all God did to bring the Jews to the Holy Land that first time. This third Exodus is no less important to God and the Bible. It is time for this generation of Jews to get some back bone! 38 years is ridiculous for them to just sit on their backsides and fret.
The Bible is clear there are Two Prophets coming to Jerusalem who will get some action out of this powder puff generation. It will not be much different then what Haggai had to do with the Jews of the Second Exodus. It will soon be time for this generation to "consider your ways." There will be no excuse that the Last Jewish Temple not be built when the Two Witnesses of Revelation 11 present themselves to Jerusalem. All opposition will be burned with fire for debating against their mandate. Ariel Sharon will find himself on the wrong side of all that God has planned for the Holy Land, Jerusalem, and the Temple Mount.
Civil War and a divided government is coming to Israel. It will be short lived because God has mandated that never again will He tolerate a divided Kingdom. Lest I appear a waffler, let me explain. The secular Jews have a leader revealed in the Bible just as the spiritual, back to the Bible, Jews have Two leaders revealed. Another, walking in the shoes of Ariel Sharon is coming called the Idol Shepherd, a foolish shepherd. He will lead secular Israel through the Great Tribulation. He will compromise with the antichrist at the cost of the sheep he claims to represent. Not all Jews get saved at the beginning of the seven year Tribulation. Redemption starts with only Two Witnesses from Jerusalem, and 144,000 called out Jews from Yesha. However, all Jews will be saved who enter into the Kingdom at the end. Through great tribulation do a large number of Jews find redemption in Christ their Messiah.
The Two Witnesses build the Temple, and establish kosher worship during the first 3-1/2 years of the Great Tribulation. They are killed by the antichrist, and their followers must flee into the wilderness. The secular Jews will appear to have won. The last half of the Great Tribulation is called Jacob's Trouble, and the secular Jews left behind find Hitler, Arafat, and Satan himself all clumped together in the person of the antichrist as he torments them. I suspect many of these Jews will see what the Spiritual Jews had warned them about. Far better had they sought their Messiah during the first half then the last half of the Great Tribulation.
Maybe it will be this year that the foolish shepherd, and the Two Witnesses will be revealed? Whatever, it is very close!

‘COLLABORATOR’ SHOT EN ROUTE TO RAMALLAH COURT
Palestinian gunmen in Ramallah Tuesday shot and killed a local man suspected of tipping off Israel about the whereabouts of wanted terrorists and engaging in “immoral behavior,” The Jerusalem Post reports. Eyewitnesses said Rami Yaghmour was killed while Palestinian Authority policemen were escorting him to court to face charges of collaboration.
IRAQI CONGRESS FIRES AIDE FOR ISRAEL VISIT
Ahmed Chalabi's Iraqi National Congress has fired one of its most senior members for visiting Israel on Monday the former exile group has announced. Mithal al-Alousi who attended a counter-terrorism conference in Herzliya told the Israeli press that: “it is in Iraq's interests to have diplomatic relations with everyone, and that is what we want.” Ten days ago the Iraqi ambassador in London told Ha’aretz there is a powerful lobby in Baghdad pushing for an end to the formal state of war between the two nations.
AL-QAEDA BOMBED TURKEY OVER ISRAEL TIES
Harun Ilhan, a leader of a Turkish al-Qaeda cell responsible for truck bombings last November that left 61 people dead, warned in court Monday of more attacks if Turkey continues to support U.S. policies or diplomatic links with Israel. "Even if Osama dies, our jihad will continue," he told the court according to the AP.
ISRAELI INTELLIGENCE OFFICERS IN RUSSIA
Israel has sent intelligence officers to Russia and is hosting at least two senior Russian officers in Tel Aviv - quietly moving to upgrade anti-terror cooperation with Moscow in the wake of a series of devastating attacks in Russia, The Guardian reports, even as Russian President Vladimir Putin has moved to strengthen his iron grip on power.
A Palestinian State will operate just like the Palestinian Authority operates. The prescient is set that any Arab who turns in a wanted terrorist will be murdered. A peaceful neighbor for Israel is an impossibility with this Palestinian culture. It is about time this foolish Road Map be dropped, and another approach be sought to dampen the terror of the Palestinians. A people who can't manage themselves need to be managed by others. A police force, and court system that can protect the individual is a must! The Palestinians are incapable of such justice! There is no hope of going to Islam seeking such justice because the whole system suffers from the same malady. The religious Mullah's have corrupted the entire religion with their teaching of hate for all infidels starting with the Jews first! The War is fully engaged. It is Islam against the world. The Jews remain the primary focus of all the hate that has been pumped into this present generation.
The Bible is clear where this generation of Islam is heading. The Russians despite all their bravado are going to compromise with the Islamic Terrorists North of the Caucasus Mountains. The Gog will release their "Chief Prince" better translated as the "Russian Prince" to invade Israel. I suspect in the end the Russian Gog will arm, and supply the hordes of Islam North of the Caucasus with all they need to leave their ancestral homelands in a massive invasion of Israel. It just might be promoted as some great pilgrimage to the Temple Mount by all of Islam? It may be that the Two Witnesses of Revelation 11 decree the God of the Bible has mandated them to build His House on the Temple Mount. This great pilgrimage/invasion might be Islam's response? No matter what the Islamic hordes tell the world, the Bible says their motivation is to take a spoil and a prey! Their intent will be to take the Holy Land for themselves, and exterminate every Jew caught in their three pronged military pincer trap.
Turkey will join the Russian Prince as he flows over the Caucasus into Turkish territory. This great army will flood into Israel where they will meet-up with the Islamic hordes from North Africa now causing such turmoil in the Sudan. Libya is specifically mentioned as part of the Southern Prong that flows up into Israel cutting off any retreat from the Northern invaders. Old Persia, Iran, closes the trap from the East pushing the Jews into a tight defensive circle with their back up against the Mediterranean Sea. It is a terrible scene, but the Bible says God comes to the aid of His children Israel as He did in days of old. A new relationship with the Jews will be available when the rapture of the Christian Church takes place. The LORD of hosts will be free to unleash His power on these Islamic invaders. The destruction of Islam will have one purpose. To free that generation of Jews to build the Last Jewish Temple on the Temple Mount!
Folks, today's news is pointing to a Biblical solution to world wide Islamic terrorism! It is not milk-toast, turn the other cheek, dialog. It is judgment fit to the crime against humanity. It is the utter destruction of all of Islam in the Middle East. Never again will Islam have a say in what will happen in the Holy Land, at Jerusalem, or on the Temple Mount. Peace with terrorism is still not the answer because just as the Jews survived the Nazis only to face Islam, so also will the end of Islam bring on the greater gentile world with the same hate for the Jews. A Jewish Kingdom replacing the times of the gentiles is the big plan of the God of the Bible. All opposition will receive the same treatment as Islam is about to experience. The time of longsuffering is about to end. This world of mankind that put the LORD Jesus Christ on the cross is about to receive the long overdue judgment it fully deserves! The King of Glory is coming again!

Michael Costello: To
survive, Israel will have to strike nuclear Iran
September 17, 2004
SOMETIME in the
next year or two, Israel is going to have to make a decision. Will it
accept that Iran has nuclear weapons and
the missiles to deliver them against Israel? Or will it do what it did to Iraq's
developing nuclear capability in 1981 and bomb it out of existence?
This sounds all rather apocalyptic. That is because it is - at least for Israel. Iran is developing a wide range of nuclear facilities and capabilities. It is doing so even though there can be few countries with less need for nuclear energy than oil-rich Iran.
But, surely, Iran is developing these nuclear facilities under the eagle eye of the International Atomic Energy Agency, the body charged with ensuring that such facilities are developed for peaceful purposes only and not diverted to military use. True enough. Furthermore, the IAEA is charged with referring any concerns it may have of any possible diversion to military use to the UN Security Council for action.
Now this sounds all fine and dandy. But there are a few problems. The IAEA supervised Iraq's nuclear facilities and developments and swore they were for peaceful purposes only. Unfortunately for Iraq, its invasion of Kuwait in 1990 led to its military trouncing and to the imposition of UN weapons inspections. These weapons inspectors found that the American and Israeli assertions that Iraq was indeed developing nuclear capability were not accurate - they were far too optimistic. The Americans and Israelis had in fact underestimated - that's right, underestimated - how far Iraq had progressed down the path to nuclear weapons.
Then there was Libya. When Libya in the past 18 months decided to give up its nuclear facilities, lo and behold, once again it turned out that Western intelligence agencies had severely underestimated how far Libya had progressed down the nuclear weapons path.
And, of course, there are the fine fellows who lead the Democratic People's Republic of Korea. Their nuclear facilities were also subject to IAEA safeguards. Yet they, too, have diverted so-called peaceful uses of nuclear energy to military purposes, and have left the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty and the IAEA system.
Former IAEA director-general Hans Blix has been replaced by a genuinely competent and much more serious person, Mohamed ElBaradei. The new director-general has done everything he can to try to bring the Iranians to heel. The Europeans demanded a central role in helping out on this, but every time things come to a head the usual suspects, Russia and France - and this time, to its shame, Britain - have refused to take the necessary action to force Iran to comply with its obligations. Only in the past few days they have again failed to take strong action.
The Iranian leadership is widely hated by its own people. It is a fundamentalist Islamic dictatorship that made a farce of the recent so-called elections - a fundamentalist dictatorship that is another great gift to the world from that fine nation France, just as Iraq's original nuclear reactor was a gift from the generous-hearted people of France. While the Iranian dictatorship is no friend to Osama bin Laden, it does agree with him absolutely on one thing: Israel should cease to exist.
Furthermore, we cannot rely on this kind of dictatorship having the same sense of self-preservation as the US and the Soviet Union showed during the Cold War. Although there were moments when we stood on the brink of nuclear war, each side accepted the terrible logic of mutual assured destruction and stepped back. This is not true of Iran's leadership. Their beliefs embrace death and martyrdom. To rely on a nuclear-armed Iran to show restraint would be a triumph of hope against reason.
So, sometime soon, Israel will be faced with this choice. Does it allow an implacable enemy determined to obliterate it as a nation to develop the means by which it can achieve that end? Or does it rely on the international community to protect it, an international community that cannot even agree on action to protect the hundreds of thousands of people being subjected to genocide right now in Darfur? Or should it simply "go gentle into that good night"? No, I don't think so. I think it will "rage against the dying of the light".
If Israel does undertake military action to protect itself, action that will be far more difficult, extensive and dangerous than that which it took against Iraq, the world will throw up its hands in horror. Instead the world should hang its head in shame for its failure to insist that Iran meet the commitments it has made.
Whether it is Iraq, or Iran, or North Korea, or Rwanda, or Darfur, or any of the other many and manifest blights on human decency, the international community continues to fail the great promise of those who founded the UN with such high hope: hope that it would bring to the world peace at last. Not peace at any price - but peace with justice and right.
This world goes from one crises to another. It is foolish to think man can solve the problems. Today, the crises does take on apocalyptic proportions when the conscienceless Islamic Mullahs get to trigger atomic weapons. This generation has a culture nurtured on hate that has turned their children into wild animals. This is the generation of Islamic barbarianism! Imagine the Nazis of the last generation having such power at their command? Imagine what those barbarians would have done to the world? The intervention of the God of the Bible is the only hope for this generation. That intervention is exactly what the Bible says is coming!
The Bible is clear if God let mankind go his own way there would be total destruction is short time. Man would destroy himself. It is only the intervention of God that saves, but it is a salvation fpr only a remnant. A submitted remnant of individuals that come to the God of the Bible in repentance seeking redemption. The rest of mankind, the crowd, are crushed as they gather for the final battle of Armageddon.
It is a sad ending for such a proud race of sinners, but the God of the Bible has limits to His longsuffering. Justice must come! Biblical justice that demands death as the wages of sin! Mankind has been paying those wages one life at a time. Soon mankind will pay the wages due corporately. It will not be nuclear inhalation at the hands of man, but God will intervene. Death is not the end with God because after death comes judgment! The justice of God is far worse then men are willing to admit! It lasts forever! It never ends! It is irreversible! It is fixed by the very attributes of God who never makes a mistake, or changes. Mercy and grace are available through the LORD Jesus Christ today, but once rejected, so great is that rejection to God, that eternal condemnation under His wrath is what Biblical justice demands. There is no purgatory. That is the lie of the Apostate Whore that will be left behind. There will be no parole. There will only be eternal wailing, and gnashing of teeth for all Christ rejecters who spit at Calvary when it was offered.
Friend, reach out for grace while the day of mercy is at hand. Come to the Lord Jesus Christ for salvation. Repent of your sin, and cast yourself at His feet. You will not be rejected! His grace is able to embrace the worst of us. The day is coming when longsuffering will end for you. Then, it will be too late. Now, is the day you must come! It is the Christ of the Bible you must receive.
12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:

UN Official Blasts Palestinians, Israel Over Stalled Road Map
Big News Network.com Saturday 18th September, 2004
A top United Nations official Friday again reported "a bad month in the Middle East."
Under-Secretary-General for Political Affairs Kieran Prendergast told the Security Council in a regular monthly briefing on the crisis pointed to a resumption of Palestinian suicide bombings inside Israel, further deadly Israeli military operations in Palestinian territories and no progress on an international peace plan that offers the only way out of "the current hopeless situation."
"Absence of hope for a peaceful settlement leads to despair, strengthens extremists and is sure recipe for continuing violence and instability,"he said.
Prendergast stressed that both Israel and the Palestinians continued to fail their minimum obligations under the so-called Road Map peace plan sponsored by the UN, European Union, Russia and United States, which calls for a series of parallel and reciprocal steps leading to two states living side-by-side in peace by 2005.
He voiced "extreme concern" at recent remarks by Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon that Israel is not following the Road Map and might stay in the West Bank long after any withdrawal from Gaza.
Mr. Prendergast said the proposed Israeli withdrawal could provide new momentum for peace only if it was complete, accompanied by similar steps in the West Bank, took place within the framework of the Road Map and is fully coordinated with the Palestinian Authority.
He noted that in the past month 80 Palestinians and 17 Israelis had been killed and 630 Palestinians and 133 Israelis injured, bringing the toll since the outbreak of the current unrest four years ago to 3,633 Palestinians and 966 Israelis killed and 35,400 Palestinians and 6,235 Israelis injured.
Referring to the suicide bombing which killed 16 Israelis, he said: "We again call on the Palestinian Authority to bring those implicated in terrorist acts to justice and to fulfil its obligations under the Road Map, as well as under international law, to do their utmost to prevent such attacks."
He noted that Israeli restriction on movement had affected UN refugee relief operations and had a severe impact on the social and economic life of Palestinian civilians. "The widespread destruction of Palestinian property by Israeli forces raises concerns about collective punishment and fuels more violence and bloodshed," he added.
He called on Israel to abide by an advisory opinion of the International Court of Justice to dismantle the separation barrier it is building on the West Bank and to pay compensation for the olive and fruit groves and other agricultural land destroyed in the process.
And he called on Palestinian President Yasser Arafat to institute tangible reforms of the security services so as "to take immediate action on the ground" to combat terror.
The Road Map should be a dead issue, but proud politicians just can't let it go. Hitler had a problem at the end of the war with being unable to face reality. It was not until he pulled the trigger of the pistol he pointed at his forehead that reality finally sank in. Today, this unworkable Road Map is pushing the Jews into the same bunker as Hitler should they not break free from this phony peace plan. Reality says it is not working, it never did work, and it never will work. The last generation discovered it was foolish to seek peace with the Nazi culture, and this generation must learn there will never be peace with the Islamic, Arab, Palestinian culture. It is the culture of hate which must be changed before peace can ever become reality.
Ariel Sharon as a peace maker is not trusted by either Jew or gentile. All are beginning to realize he is a politician first, and does what is in his best political interest. He will use whoever he can, and will abandon them as soon as better prospects develop. One moment he tells the gentiles he will unilaterally withdraw from Yesha to make room for a Palestinian State, and then when the Jewish people begin to rebel he suddenly says he will not withdraw from Samaria and Judah? I can say very distinctly that no one, not even Sharon himself, know what he is going to do? He just watches the wind ready to move in whatever direction it may blow for his political gain.
The God of the Bible offers a workable peace to the entire world. It is so fixed, and unchangeable that it was written down thousands of years ago. It remains as it was written! The LORD Jesus Christ is coming again as the King of the Jews. He is coming to the Holy Land, Jerusalem, and the Temple Mount! He is coming as the LORD of hosts! The King of Glory! This is the only peace plan that has always worked, is working today, and will work throughout eternity. Peace with God must come before mankind can have peace with each other. Man must step aside admitting his sin is what prevents peace. The Bible says the only permanent solution to sin is Christ. The penalty of sin was paid for at Calvary. The problem is men refuse to come to Christ for cleansing. Men refuse to make peace with the God of the Bible!
It is only Christ who can change this worldly culture of sin and hate. Redemption is freely available to any sinner desiring peace with God. This plan is the peace God has always offered to the whole world. It will begin in the Holy Land, and no phony political plans will push it out of the way.
25 See that ye refuse not him that speaketh. For if they escaped not who refused him that spake on earth, much more shall not we escape, if we turn away from him that speaketh from heaven:

Hamas in Support of
10:59 Sep 19, '04 / 4 Tishrei 5765
Hamas, the Palestinian terror organization whose members have murdered hundreds of Israelis over the past four years, supports the Chechen terrorists in Russia and Islamic terror worldwide.
Hamas literature captured by the Israel Defense Forces includes CD's and posters expressing admiration, solidarity and support of the Chechens and other Moslem terrorists. Correspondent Haggai Huberman reports that the Hamas organization disseminates these materials in schools and universities throughout Judea, Samaria and Gaza, as part of their indoctrination program of the young generation.
The CDs that contain support for the Chechens - who just 18 days ago massacred over 400 school children and adults in an attack on a school in southern Russia - were disseminated in the American University in Jenin last November, in Hebron College this past February, and last month in the Hebron Orphanage.
The literature describes the Russian military operations against the Chechens as "terroristic," while lauding the Chechen terrorist leaders such as Shamil Basayev and "Hatab," the code-name for Samir Tzalah Abdullah Al-Sawilem.
One of the posters disseminated by Hamas features Osama Bin-Laden together with Ahmed Yassin of Hamas and several Chechen terrorist leaders. The literature includes a message of brotherhood and international Islamic revival of Moslems living as an "oppressed minority" under the rule of "infidels."
Here is a news item that will be suppressed by the media. The sure link that exists between Osama ben Laden, Hamas Palestinians, and Chechen terrorism. Hamas for those who may not know is the Palestinian terrorist group supported by Iran. Two prongs of the three pronged Islamic invasion of Israel in Ezekiel 38 & 39 are now clearly united with that piece of garbage called Osama ben Laden. I suspect the Moslems of North Africa will soon be discovered as united with the others, and then the last prong will be in place for the Islamic invasion of the Holy Land!
I'm sure Saddam Hussein would have been in the thick of things if it wasn't for the action of the Christian world that has ended his terrorism. It is the Christian world that must still wake up to reality. The tie between Osama ben Laden, and the Palestinians should convince all that to negotiate with the Palestinians is the same as negotiating with Osama! Hamas is loved by the Palestinian culture, and this latest news item shows not only are united terrorist links welcomed throughout the Palestinian school system, but it even reaches into the orphanages of the youngest Palestinians.
It is time to demand of this Palestinian culture it repudiate all links to these barbarian killers of children, or face world wide Christian condemnation. Their demands for a State of their own should be put in the same category as that of the Nazis of the last generation. Who would have said the Nazis deserved a State of their own after World War Two? These political games being played must end! The greatest insult of all is the proposal to give this barbarian culture a State in the middle of the Holy Land. This not only should offend Christians, but it most certainly offends the God of the Bible. Cultures of barbarism such as represented by ben Laden, and his supporters should be given no single piece of this planet to exercise their ideologies of hate and terrorism. They should forever be cultures without a country. Cultures without a place to call home. When men refuse to police themselves of such animalistic, totally depraved cultures, it is time for the God of the Bible to fight as He did against the nations of old!
The United States took Afghanistan from the ben Laden culture for his act of terrorism against innocent men, woman, and children on 9/11. The Russians now want to do the same to the Chechen terrorists who murdered in cold blood all those poor little children that so shocked the world. Why, oh why, are the Palestinians treated differently? Is it because they murder Jewish children? The time for games must end. Ending the mindless games of sin is exactly what God is planning to do in the Holy Land, at Jerusalem, and on the Temple Mount!
Israel has treated the Arab Israelis far more fairly then those same Arabs would be treated in any other Arab controlled land. There are almost no Jews living in Arab controlled lands today because they have all been evicted under the threat of death. It is true today that as Rahab was treated fairly so also shall any peaceful Arab be treated with that same kind of respect by Israel. It is the Arab Palestinian culture which will never submit to Jewish soviernty over the Holy Land that causes world wide Islamic Terror. It will soon be the God of the Bible who answers their barbarianism with destruction.

Ashrawi: "Peace and
Justice" PA TV: "Kill The Jews"
00:58 Sep 21, '04 / 6 Tishrei 5765
While PA Chairman Yassir Arafat dispatches diplomats to promise peace in exchange for Israeli concessions, his TV station broadcasts a clear message to his Arab constituents: Kill the Jews.
This brief comparative study presents video footage released
today of Mr. Arafat's primary spokesperson - Dr. Hanan Ashrawi
- addressing an
overseas audience in English alongside two TV programs broadcast last week
Arabic on PA TV. Dr. Ashrawi's message of
"peace with justice for Palestine
and Israel" did not translate over to the Arabic broadcast of outright
incitement to murder Jews, "the brothers of monkeys and pigs."
The PA Message in English
In honor of the International Day of Prayer for Peace, the World Council of Churches posted on its website today a video message from Palestinian Authority spokesperson Dr. Hanan Ashrawi. In an eloquent address, Dr. Ashrawi declares:
"Peace with justice is not an abstract value; it is a real determining factor of our lives. It is a most basic human right, and we appreciate everything you've done, in order not just to talk about peace with justice for Palestine and Israel, but also to act on that basis."

While Dr. Ashrawi was convincing an English-speaking audience that "peace with justice.. is a real determining factor of our lives," a video address from the same Ramallah offices was broadcasting a very different message. Palestinian Media Watch (PMW)captured footage of two PA TV programs in three days showing official religious leaders openly calling for the genocide of Jews.
The PA Message in Arabic
In his sermon of Friday, September 10th, 2004, televised on PA TV, Sheikh Ibrahim Madiras told the Arabs of Judea, Samaria, and Gaza:
"The Prophet said: the Resurrection will not take place until the Muslims fight the Jews, and the Muslims kill them. The Muslims will kill the Jews, rejoice [in it], rejoice in Allah's Victory. The Muslims will kill the Jews, and he [the Jew] will hide. The Prophet said: the Jews will hide behind the rock and tree, and the rock and tree will say: oh servant of Allah, oh Muslim this is a Jew behind me, come and kill him!. Why is there this malice? Because there are none who love the Jews on the face of the earth: not man, not rock, and not tree everything hates them. They destroy everything. They destroy the trees and destroy the houses. Everything wants vengeance on the Jews, on these pigs on the face of the earth, and the day of our victory, Allah willing, will come."
Click here for a brief clip of the above televised footage of Sheikh Madiras'
September 10th, 2004, sermon.
In both the above sermon of Sheikh Madiras and the address of Dr. Muhammad Ibrahim Maadi which follows, the religious leaders present the killing of Jews not merely as the will of Allah, but also as a necessary stage in history that should be carried out now. This call to murder Jews by Mr. Arafat's Arabic language TV station stands in sharp contrast to the calming words of his English language spokesperson Dr. Ashrawi regarding, "courage, conviction, integrity and a genuine commitment to peace with justice."
On September 12th, Dr. Muhammad Ibrahim Maadi on his weekly PA TV show, said the following:
"We are waging this cruel war with the brothers of the monkeys and pigs, the Jews and the sons of Zion. The Jews will fight you, and you will subjugate them. Until the Jew will stand behind the tree and rock. And the tree and rock will say: oh Muslim, oh servant of Allah, there is a Jew behind me, come and kill him."
here for the short video clip from Dr. Maadi's Sept. 12th show.
To support the mandatory killing of Jews, both religious leaders cited the same Hadith - a verse of Islamic tradition attributed to Mohammed - expressing Allah’s will that Muslims kill Jews, before the “Hour” of Resurrection. The words of the Hadith:
"The Hour [Resurrection] will not take place until the Muslims fight the Jews, and kill them. And the Jews will hide behind the rock and tree, and the rock and tree will say: oh Muslim, oh servant of Allah, this is a Jew behind me, come and kill him!"
Numerous times in recent years, Arab religious leaders and
academics in the areas controlled by
Yassir Arafat have taught publicly that
this particular Islamic teaching calling for the murder of Jews applies today.
Below are a few examples [courtesy of Palestinian Media Watch] of previous PA TV
broadcasts which convey this same message.
"There is a Jew behind me, come and kill him."

video of Dr Hassan Khader, founder Al Quds Encyclopedia on a July 13, 2003 PA TV
broadcast and Dr. Ibrahim Maadi on an Apr. 12, 2002 PA TV clip.

Council, Rector of Advanced Studies, Islamic Univ on a PA TV, Oct. 13, 2000
This teaching may well be a dominant motivating factor that
drives terror against Israeli civilians, because it presents the
killing of Jews
as a religious obligation inherent to Allah’s world, not related to the conflict
Hanan Ashrawi in her above-cited video address spoke of "several attempts to exclude the Palestinians from human recognition and consideration and from the moral framework of humanity." Only days before, Dr. Ashrawi's own PA TV station broadcast the above-cited religious lessons which reduced the Jews to "pigs on the face of the earth" and "the brothers of the monkeys and pigs." PA religious leaders teach, based on a story in the Quran, that Jews were cursed by Allah and turned into monkeys and pigs.
This is consistent with the PA teaching that the Jew's have inherent and unchanging character defects. Dehumanizing Israelis and Jews is common in the PA print media.
Click here for examples of cartoons which depict Jews as sub-human, provided by Palestinian Media Watch.
Finally, Dr. Ashrawi's repeated references to peace in her English address ("genuine commitment to peace," "the pursuit of Palestinian-Israeli peace") and her self portrayal as an opponent of terrorism are not consistent with her own track record of statements in Arabic.
As PMW's Itamar Marcus notes in an in-depth analysis of Ashrawi's one and only Arabic condemantion of suicide terrorism:
"Ashrawi did not condemn in Arabic the suicide bombing that killed tens in a Jerusalem pizza shop, or the hundreds of civilians murdered on buses, in recent years. Not even once... The first public statement against suicide terrorism in Arabic was made by Ashrawi only in an open petition she signed with other Palestinians in the Al-Quds newspaper on June 19, 2002... However, even a simple reading of the petition shows that she explicitly does not reject terror as a tool when it is politically effective, but only when it causes political damage. The petition does not include a single word of condemnation of suicide terrorism, and does not rule out terrorism at times when it is an effective tool. It deals entirely with the negative political results of suicide terrorism now for her cause."
"Ashrawi is not a moderate by any Western standard. She is a slick, terrorist supporter who understands the importance of public relations, proper timing and spin for terrorism."
What a contrast between what the Bible says, and what the Koran says! Mohamed said the resurrection will not come until the Moslems kill all the Jews! Every man, woman, and child will be their prey! Ezekiel 38 & 39 is a Biblical prophecy yet to be fulfilled, and fits right into this epitaph of hate left behind by Mohamed to his seed. The Bible says the Jews will survive the Moslem onslaught. The fig trees of Israel will provide a pleasant place for every Jew to sit, and God declares none shall make them afraid! There will be no Islamic resurrection after the last jihad of Ezekiel takes place. The Koran is a book of lies authored by the prince of lies. The last jihad will bring only the judgment of death to Islam. It will take just such a catastrophe as recorded in Ezekiel 39 to open the door for the building of the Last Jewish Temple on the Temple Mount. Islamic influence over the Middle East must end! What better judgment then to have a united Islam putting all their faith into an Islamic resurrection based on the eradication of all the Jews? What better picture of ungodly religion meeting judgment then to have Islam believe the lies of Mohamed, and march into destruction for their murderous intentions toward the Jews? What greater victory for the Bible, and utter defeat for the Koran then what Ezekiel 39 predicts?
The showdown is quickly approaching. A great Biblical event is almost here, and the Christian world sleeps! It is the Christian United States that is forcing the Road Map on Israel. We Christians are being duped by Arafat who is telling the Moslems he is the Islamic Messiah who will march victoriously into Jerusalem. Our stupid peace plan convinces the Islamic world Allah is great. His trickery has outwitted those foolish Bible people. We encourage Islam to think the Koran is superior to the Bible because the Bible believers are giving away the Holy Land for some foolish hand shake in hopes that Islam will behave. All the time Islam is preparing for the resurrection! The day when they murder all the Jews! I'm sure they believe Allah will then make short work of any other infidels.
The good thing about all this is that the God of the Bible does not need the Christians in order to bring in the next dispensation. In fact, the Bible says the Christians will be raptured out of the world before He begins the Great Tribulation that ends the times of the gentiles. The stone cut without hands will smote all the gentile kingdoms. This stone will set up His own Kingdom which shall never be destroyed. Not another failed religious Church Age, but a Kingdom. A Kingdom established in the Holy Land, at Jerusalem, and on the Temple Mount. Not in New York City, or Rome, Italy, but Jerusalem! The gentile world will end, and the Jewish Kingdom will begin. The gentile Church age will end, and the Great Tribulation will begin that brings the Jews back to their Messiah. It is not the Koran, and the murderous Arafat who will enter Jerusalem victoriously because of the stupidity of this lukewarm Christian Church. It will be the King of the Jews. The King of Glory. The LORD Jesus Christ who will be the victor over Jerusalem forever.... He is coming again! He did not need a Christian Church to come the first time, and He will not need a Christian Church to come again!
9 Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion; shout, O daughter of Jerusalem : behold, thy King cometh unto thee: he is just, and having salvation; lowly, and riding upon an ass, and upon a colt the foal of an ass.

Two killed in suicide attack at French Hill in Jerusalem
By Amos Harel, Roni Singer and Arnon Regular, Haaretz Correspondents, Haaretz Service and Agencies
At least two Israelis were killed and some 15 others were wounded Wednesday afternoon in an terror attack at the French Hill neighborhood of northern Jerusalem.
The blast, which occurred
at about 3:50 P.M. at the French Hill junction hitchhiking post on the
road leading to the Dead Sea, was caused
by a female suicide bomber, according to Jerusalem police chief Ilan
Of the wounded, two people have serious injuries and 13 others sustained light and moderate wounds. One of the wounded is a 9-year-old child.
Moshe Suissa of the Jerusalem fire department said the attacker tried to approach a hitchhiking post used by IDF soldiers when a Border Policeman spotted her.
The blast destroyed the bus stop, leaving shards of glass scattered in the road as the smell of burnt rubber wafted in the air.
The bomber was carrying a bag containing the explosive device, which weighed around 3 to 5kg, Channel 2 reported.
Al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigades, the military wing of Palestinian Authority Chairman Yasser Arafat's Fatah faction, claimed responsibility for the attack, saying that the female bomber came from the area of the West Bank city of Jenin.
The group said the attack was in retaliation for the killings of Palestinian militants in Nablus and Jenin.
Palestinian Cabinet Minister Saeb Erekat condemned the attack, saying the Palestinians oppose all violence aimed at civilians.
He called on the United States to use its influence to bring the Israelis and Palestinians back to the negotiating table.
Security forces sealed off the area of the attack and carried out searches for additional explosive devices, and set up roadblocks in the Ramallah area, not far north of French Hill.
The French Hill junction has been the scene of numerous terror attacks during the past four years of Israeli-Palestinian violence, including a 2002 suicide bombing in which six people were killed and 50 wounded.
This was the first suicide bombing in Israel since the August 31 double suicide bus bombing in Be'er Sheva that killed 16 people.
It is no surprise to hear a senior Palestinian official condemn this act of murder for English speaking audiences. I expect he danced in the street before his Arabic neighbors? It is the rest of the story that Christian America needs to hear. Islam has turned this horror of terrorism into a game. It is called lie to the foolish infidels while planning for the extermination of the Jews. It should be clear that Islam as a religion justifies Moslems who lie to non-Moslems. It is not a sin, and in fact is considered a gift of Allah to those who do it best. Arafat has climbed to the top of the Palestinian ladder using just this one ability to lie. Arafat knows the torture of Jews will always be his goal in whatever he says. Justice for the Palestinian people may be the biggest lie of all. It is not justice, but torture of Jews that has been Arafat's goal for the Palestinian people. He makes sure such Jewish torture is always positively presented to this generation of the Palestinian culture. It is this same goal that motivates all of the support Arafat receives with the exception of those English speakers who are duped into believing his lies.
Islam knows the Temple Mount is the center to all their lying hopes and aspirations. The Al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigade comes directly from Arafat. It is named for the Islamic Mosque located on the Temple Mount. It is, in your face, terrorism while the world media reports the phony words of condemnation against such murderous action by the Palestinians. Islam has declared war using the Al-Aqsa Mosque as the battle cry. It is the Temple Mount that Islam has identified as the center of their life or death battle for this generation of Moslems.
Israel became the sovereign over the Temple Mount in 1967 after the Six Day War. This was part of God's plan in preparation for dispensational change. The gentile Christian Church Age is ending, and the Jewish Kingdom Age is about to begin. Islam can't stand what the God of the Bible is doing to Allah and the Koran in the Holy Land, Jerusalem, and the Temple Mount! Arafat and his cohorts are telling Islam the time of the Moslem resurrection is here for this generation. The teachings of Mohamed from the Koran demand that Islam must exterminate the Jews, and then Allah will resurrect all of Islam to do the same with the rest of the infidels. This is the great lie of the Koran which Arafat, and now most of Islam believes. It is the great message to this generation of Islam that has been nurtured on hate, murder, and suicide bombing.
The Temple Mount will never be Islamic. It is going to be the center of the coming Kingdom Age promised to Jacob. The liars will lose, and the truth will prevail. Another truth that must prevail is just how foolish it is for the United States to back the Road Map constructed by the Russians, EU, and UN. The best gift Christian America can leave for the Jews of the next dispensation is to clearly end all support for the gentile Road Map. What a sad legacy we will leave behind after the rapture. Silence on the part of born again Christians toward a plan to give most of the Holy Land to Islam! Silent support for a plan that helps promote an Islamic resurrection at the cost of ethnically cleansing all the Jews from the Holy Land. It is a legacy that should never have seen the light of day. It is a legacy based on a great lie. It gives Islam, and characters like Arafat legitimacy that the teachings of the Koran are latter day revelations, and of greater import then the Bible! It is a legacy I will not endorse. It is a black stain that will be left behind by the last generation of the remnant of Christians of the last days of the Biblical Church.

BUSH CALLS FOR SETTLEMENT FREEZE
US President George W. Bush on Tuesday urged Israel to freeze settlements and dismantle unauthorized outposts in the territories while telling the Palestinian leadership to abandon ties to terrorist groups, The Jerusalem Post reports. Bush, addressing the UN General Assembly in New York, also called on Arab states to "establish normal relations with Israel."
"Israel should impose a settlement freeze, dismantle unauthorized outposts, end the daily humiliation of the Palestinian people, and avoid any actions that prejudice final negotiations," Bush said. Closed door discussions with Israeli officials, however, have led the administration to soften its working definition of a “freeze” allowing for ‘natural growth’ in certain larger communities envisioned as falling under Israeli sovereignty under a prospective future peace deal.
Bush’s comments, re-iterating formal US policy on settlements as spelled out in the 2002 road map plan, came as Israel launched a focused diplomatic effort to convince UN member states that the adoption of a balanced, unbiased stance toward the region's problems is essential in the promotion of peace. Israeli Foreign Minister Silvan Shalom spent Tuesday meeting with the foreign ministers of Egypt, Jordan, Canada, Denmark, and Angola, and is due to have talks with UN Secretary General Kofi Annan on Wednesday.
The Bible is full of gentile leaders who opposed the First and Second Exoduses of the Jews to the Holy Land. They all ended up as losers for opposing the God of the Bible. I suspect things are not going to be different during this Third miraculous Exodus to the Holy Land. Dispensational changes are always major Biblical events. Woe to any who would resist God when He has clearly defined His intent for the future of the Holy Land. We do not like it when change is forced upon us. It is natural for sinners to resist God when He begins forcing His perfect righteousness on a generation comfortable with an unbiblical concept of self-righteousness. It is happening to Islam, and to the Christian Church. It is happening to Jew, and gentile alike. Change is being forced on the gentile controlled world by events taking place in the Holy Land, at Jerusalem, and on the Temple Mount. The Jews are back! They meet at Jerusalem where the Knesset is located. They have no united plan right now, but know the Last Jewish Temple must be built on the Temple Mount. They know there will never be purpose behind this Third Exodus until that Temple is built. God is moving in that direction, and the gentile world resists! Soon, God will raise up in Jerusalem the Two prophets predicted in Revelation chapter 11 for the purpose of giving the Jews direction in building a kosher Temple. One may be the builder like Zerubbable of the Second Exodus, and the other responsible for kosher worship within the Temple like Joshua of the Second Exodus.
The designation of the two olive trees confirms exactly what the ministry of the Two Witnesses of Revelation will be. They will do in this Third Exodus what Zerubbable and Joshua did at the Second Exodus! They will build, and establish a kosher Temple where kosher worship will be practiced! The Two Witnesses have absolutely nothing to do with the Christian Church. The Church Age will have ended! These are two Jewish prophets from Jerusalem who will be focused on the next dispensation God is creating as already recorded in the Bible. The Church Age ends, and the Jewish Kingdom Age begins. A Kingdom centered in the Holy Land, at Jerusalem, and on the Temple Mount! 144,000 Jews from Yesha living on the lands of the original tribes will supply the workers who will accomplish the task!
All gentiles must step aside in the light of such a major event. Pharaoh found resistance was foolish. He not only destroyed himself, but the nation of Egypt. More recently, Hitler of the last generation met the same fate. Woe to those of this generation who would resist the future plans of the God of the Bible for the Holy Land. Righteousness is coming back to planet earth. Not the phony stuff we see in today's Christianity. It will be puritanical righteousness exampling the Holy God of the Bible in all truthfulness. The games all end when the next dispensation begins. All must step out of the way when this God of the Bible steps in!
11 And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them.

It is the holiest space in the Jewish world. It is also the holiest space inside each one of us. The Holy of Holies. Plunge the depths...
Suicide Bomber Was Children´s TV Show Hostess
20:39 Sep 23, '04 / 8 Tishrei 5765
The young 18-year-old female suicide terrorist, Zeinab Ali Isa Abu-Salem, who murdered two Israelis yesterday, was none other than a children's TV show hostess on a local station in Shechem.
The young 18-year-old female suicide terrorist, Zeinab Ali Isa Abu-Salem, who murdered two Israelis yesterday and wounded some 30 others, was none other than a children's TV show hostess on a local station in Shechem. Ofra resident Debbie Segal, who noticed the terrorist approaching the bus stop moments before she blew herself up, described her as "extraordinarily beautiful." She comes from a very wealthy Arab family in Shechem, which owns the TV station where she worked.
Palestinian Media Watch has thoroughly documented numerous children's TV programs that indoctrinate Arab children to seek "heroic death for Allah." On January 15, 2002, Arafat himself, during a PA televised message to children, told them, "Is it not the greatest message to the world, when a child dies for Allah?"
Abu-Salem raises the number of female suicide terrorists to eight. Security sources say that she, like most of them, was young, single, and intelligent. Another 40 female terrorists have been arrested since the Oslo War began on Rosh Hashana, 2000, some of whom were on their way to commit suicide attacks.
Eyewitnesses to yesterday's attack said that the terrorist, clad in a veil, was stopped at the Border Guard post at the entrance to the crowded bus-and-ride stop, and argued with one of the policeman who wanted to check her. When the second officer approached them, Abu-Salem detonated the explosives that she held in a bag in her hand. IMRA notes that this occurred just a day after US President Bush told the UN General Assembly that Israel must "end the daily humiliation of the Palestinian people" - a reference to the checkpoints.
The two Border Guard policemen who were killed in yesterday's suicide bombing in northern Jerusalem were buried today. They are Momoya Tahio, 20, from Rehovot, who immigrated from Ethiopia a number of years ago, and Menashe Komemi, 19, from Moshav Aminadav in the Jerusalem area.
Komemi's cousin, Raanan Komemi, was killed a year ago in a battle with terrorists in central Gaza. Raanan's father - the uncle of the policeman killed yesterday - is one of the founding members of an organization called the Three Fathers, which demands that the government allow the army to fight the anti-terror war without restraint and that the Supreme Court not prevent the army from razing structures used by terrorists to perpetrate attacks.
A few hours after the attack, Israeli forces demolished the homes of the terrorist and of her dispatcher. The two lived in the Shechem area in northern Shomron. In addition, IDF forces arrested over 15 terrorists in various Yesha areas last night.
This beautiful, bright, young lady is now a murderess forever! She closed her eyes in this world to open them in torment! Hell is where she dwells according to the Bible, and her torment matches her hate for Abraham's seed. There are no cuti-pies in hell. The light of absolute purity reveals the truth! Death ends the life-story of each individual. The Bible says the accurate records kept of each life are then sealed onto the day of final judgment. All who face God on that day will be found wanting in the light of His Glory! Each life will be measured against perfection, and then comes judgment! Such is the seriousness of even a little sin. Judgment means the Lake of Fire. A terrible place of eternal torment even worse then hell! This young girl who encouraged Palestinian children to become suicide bombers is feeling the wrath of God. The example she left behind will forever condemn her to the torments of hell, and then the lake of fire. Nothing in the books that record her life here on earth can be changed. The Holy God of the Bible who dwelt in the previous Jewish Temples will apply His perfect standard to each life as they are brought before Him on the day of coming judgment. Who will be able to stand?
16 And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb :
17 For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?
Certainly not this dead Moslem young lady! She ended her life encouraging children to follow her example of defiance against the King of Glory coming to the Holy Land, Jerusalem, and the Temple Mount. There can be nothing more noxious to holiness then the willful corruption of little children! Such perverts will find the wrath of God beyond imagination.
Yom Kippur was the one day each year when the Jewish High Priest was required to enter into the Holy of Holies. He entered with sacrificial blood for the atonement of sin. He came into the presence of the Holy God. His body had to be washed of every trace of dirt. His cloths had to be immaculate. His heart had to be clean. He had to be fully confessed of all sin for this brief moment when he could come into the presence of absolute holiness. It was no ritual. The penalty of just the slightest infraction was death. The God of the Bible plays no games when it comes to sin. It is serious business that evokes the highest penalty should a lackadaisical attitude be found. Who can stand before this God? The High Priest could for a brief moment, but were he ever to come without blood he would be consumed.
10 And Aaron shall make an atonement upon the horns of it once in a year with the blood of the sin offering of atonements: once in the year shall he make atonement upon it throughout your generations: it is most holy unto the LORD.
The LORD Jesus Christ provides the blood we need to come into the presence of holiness. The blood He shed at Calvary is what makes atonement for sin. Without the blood of Christ there is no atonement. There is only eternal condemnation under the never ending wrath of God. Rejecting such a great salvation is why the lake of fire was created. Friend, if you have never received Christ you will share the torment of this Moslem lady killer. The Devil, the Beast, the false prophet, are all equally tossed into this eternal place of torment along with all others who rejected Christ in their lifetime. Only those written down in the book of life survive judgment. Only those who come with blood will find atonement for sin. Nothing has changed from the First Temple until today. Soon, the LORD Jesus Christ will sit on His throne in the Last Jewish Temple to be built on the Temple Mount. Only His blood has power over sin. There is no other way to come into the presence of holiness! There is only one Christ who shed His blood at Calvary. There is only one who can save!

Temple Mount Collapse Atop Moslem Worshipers
17:26 Sep 26, '04 / 11 Tishrei 5765
An Israeli report, based on Egyptian findings, states that there is an immediate risk that the Temple Mount could collapse when many thousands of Moslems arrive for Ramadan prayers in three weeks.
A report by the Israel Antiquities Authority, based on the findings of an Egyptian engineering team, states that there is an immediate risk that the Solomon's Stables area of the Temple Mount could collapse when many tens of thousands of Moslem worshipers arrive for Ramadan prayers in three weeks' time. The Authority's report says that the danger is "almost certain."
Israeli security officials are taking the warnings seriously, but it appears that the Moslem officials are less concerned. Although Israel is sovereign over the area, Moslem Waqf officials have forbidden Israeli engineers from entering the area to evaluate the risk. The Waqf has also refused to limit the number of worshipers at the Temple Mount during Ramadan prayers. Even a visit by Jerusalem Police Chief Ilan Franko to Jordan in an effort to have the Jordanians exert pressure on the Waqf has apparently not succeeded.
Public Security Minister Gideon Ezra says that if there is no choice, the Israel Police will restrict the number of Moslems entering the Temple Mount for the Ramadan services. Waqf director Adnan Husseini says there is no reason for such measures, and that the whole issue is merely "Israeli propaganda."
Over the past several years, the Waqf has made major structural changes on and under the Temple Mount, in a two-pronged effort to expand the mosques there and erase any vestiges of Jewish history at the site. The Temple Mount is Judaism's holiest location in the world, where the two Holy Temples were built and destroyed and where the Third Temple will be built. Moslem worshipers are now directed to two main areas on the Mount - on the ground level and on a roof supported by pillars in which cracks have been noted. The unsupervised digging under the site, heavy tiles placed on the upper plateau, and recent earthquakes and weather conditions have all greatly increased the danger of collapse.
The annual Ramadan prayers - which take place every 12 lunar months on the Muslim calendar - attracts tens of thousands of people to the Temple Mount each Friday of the month of Ramadan. A collapse of the pillars could bury many thousands of worshipers, and the Moslem world would likely blame Israel.
I don't know if the Temple Mount will fall down on the heathen Moslems or not? They certainly have done everything they can to cause such a tragedy. They are even preparing to blame such a tragedy on the Jews should it happen. Islam never loses is the only theology they know. There is no way to wake such proud religionists to the reality that they chose a phony man made god, and rejected the only true Creator God of the Bible. In doing so, they rejected the only way of salvation offered to the world of lost sinners. They reject the LORD Jesus Christ!
It was Christ who said of the Second Temple that not till every stone be cleared away shall the end come! Every stone has not been removed even to this day, but the day is coming when Solomon's Stable will be torn down. The Wailing Wall where Jews press their heads in prayer as the closest they can approach the site of the Temple must also come down! This wall that separates the Jews from their God must be removed! The entire Temple Mount must be cleared of every polluted pebble. This cleansing must be done in preparation for the building of the Last Holy Jewish Temple to be built on the Temple Mount as described in Ezekiel 40 - 48. This is a radical proposition I'm making as the proper interpretation of Matthew chapter 24, but an interpretation that fits the facts for this generation.
It was this statement by Christ that all the false witnesses could agree was worthy of His death. It was this statement that caused the court to falsely accuse Him of blasphemy! It was this statement about the Holy Place that sent Him to Calvary's Cross!
13 And set up false witnesses, which said, This man ceaseth not to speak blasphemous words against this holy place, and the law:
14 For we have heard him say, that this Jesus of Nazareth shall destroy this place, and shall change the customs which Moses delivered us.
I'm convinced a literal interpretation of the Bible is the best. There are stones which were placed one upon another on the Temple Mount which Jesus could see from His vantage point on the Mount of Olives that are still unmoved to this day! The words of Jesus as recorded in Matthew 24:2, Mark 13:2, and Luke 21:6 are a prophecy yet to take place. It is the abomination of Daniel that fixes the time for the cleansing of the Temple Mount in preparation for the building of the Last Holy Jewish Temple!. I'm convinced the testimony of the Two Witnesses of Revelation 11, and the 144,000 Jews of Yesha will be to build Ezekiel's Temple. That is the only Jewish Temple with a throne!
7 And he said unto me, Son of man, the place of my throne , and the place of the soles of my feet, where I will dwell in the midst of the children of Israel for ever, and my holy name, shall the house of Israel no more defile, neither they, nor their kings, by their whoredom, nor by the carcases of their kings in their high places.
It will be the Last Temple to be built on the Temple Mount! It will be absolutely holy meeting all the absolute standards of the only absolutely Holy God as presented in the Bible. It will require all the pollution of the years be bulldozed out of the way into the valley of Hinnom. I suspect redeemed Jews will sweep the Mount clean of every speck of the former filth before construction begins.
Only this generation can put together a throne built for the coming again King of the Jews, and the terrible usurpation of that throne by the antichrist midway through the Great Tribulation. It is the generation of the rapture that can see holiness has fallen into unrecoverable depths by an Apostate Church with only a lukewarm remnant to admit failure. The next Biblical dispensation of the Kingdom Age is the only answer to restore holiness as the God of the Bible demands. Yom Kippur must be restored, or holiness will be falsely represented to the world by a people too proud to see the truth of their filthiness. Holiness is the end to which the God of the Bible demands be the victor! That Holiness can only come with the Jewish Messiah. It is the rejected King who never stopped loving the seed of Abraham who insists His Jewish Kingdom will rule the whole world from the Temple Mount in perfect righteousness, in perfect purity, and in perfect holiness! This is the generation raised up for just this purpose!

Israeli mayor calls for Gaza town to be erased
Big News Network.com Tuesday 28th September, 2004
Responding to Kassam rockets being fired into the Israeli town of Sderot, the local mayor says the Gaza town of Beit Hanoun should be destroyed.
In an interview aired by Israeli army radio, Sderot Mayor Eli Moyal said if the only solution was to destroy Beit Hanoun (where the rockets were fired from), then "so be it."
Beit Hanoun is in northern Gaza.
"Everything that the government has done so far has not helped the situation. It has just increased the terror attacks. Their methods are simply not working. If the price of stopping the attacks is wiping out Beit Hanoun -- that's what should be done," Moyal went on.
"If this had happened to the Americans, Russians or French ? Beit Hanoun would have been erased long ago," Moyal said.
"It is intolerable that every morning, at the same hour, houses in Sderot are damaged and people suffering shock are taken to hospital," he added.
"The situation in Sderot is 'boiling,'" he went on, "the government must immediately put a stop to Kassam attacks on the town - before things get out of hand. There is so much rage and anger here, I am hearing things that I haven't heard in years."
"These elements will spot the weak link and take advantage of it to gain power," he said. "I ask in the name of our residents, bring peace and security to Sderot."
Brig. Gen. Yakov Amidror, the former deputy director of Israel's military intelligence, agreed the situation was intolerable, and that the only solution was for Israel to conduct a large scale operation throughout the Gaza Strip, similar to the Defensive Shield operation in Judea and Samaria that followed a bloody spate of suicide bombings in the spring of 2002.
Meantime Haaretz newspaper reported a Palestinian militant was killed Monday afternoon in an Israel Air Force missile strike in the southern Gaza Strip, bringing to seven the number of Palestinians killed in the territories during the day.
The missile fired by an IAF helicopter hit a vehicle in the town of Khan Yunis, killing one man and wounding three others, Palestinian witnesses told Haaretz.
The witnesses said the apparent target of the strike was Mohammed Abu Nsair, a leading activist of the Popular Resistance Committees, an umbrella militant group. Medics said he was wounded in the strike.
The man killed in the strike was identified as 26-year-old militant Ali Al-Shaer.
Also Monday Israeli Police arrested a settler from Alon Moreh who allegedly shot dead a Palestinian driver at the Itamar junction in the northern West Bank.
The settler, who was driving at the time along the same road, claimed the Palestinian intentionally tried to run him off the road with his vehicle.
The settler reported the incident to police upon arriving at the settlement of Elon Moreh, reported Haaretz.
"In his [the settler's] version, a Palestinian car tried to force him off the road and he fired his weapon in response to that attempt," said police spokesman Gil Kleiman, adding that a criminal investigation was under way.
According to the the settler's account, he repeatedly signaled for the Palestinian to slow down, but his calls were ignored, and he eventually used his personal firearm to shoot the Palestinian dead.
But Palestinian hospital officials said the dead man, a taxi driver in his 40s, was shot by a group of settlers as he ferried passengers to a nearby Palestinian town.
The passengers were being questioned about the incident by police and military, and were not available for comment, the Haaretz report added.
The clash of cultures makes for the worst of neighborly relations. The Jews are faced with a culture of hate. This Palestinian generation has been taught from cradle to grave to kill the Jews. What might be simple road rage turns tragic when the Jew is convinced the Palestinian driver is out to kill him. It only makes sense when rockets rain down on Israeli towns with no more direction then to maim and murder Jews. Any Jews, Jewish children not withstanding! The days when Jews were only the victims of gentile hate ended in 1948 when the State of Israel was established. There is now a Jewish generation that will not passively march into the holocaust ovens. They have shown great restraint now that they have the power to defend themselves. There is a Jewish Army that is second to none, and a match for any murderous intents fostered by Islam. The Palestinians themselves could be wiped out in hours should Jewish wrath ever be stirred beyond the boil. The Palestinian culture is it's own worst enemy. It kicks at the giant defiantly, and then cries and moans when the giant stirs.
There is a greater giant then the Israeli Army. He is the Jewish God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. He has decided that this generation would see the Glory of the LORD. The promises made to father Abraham about a Jewish Kingdom are being brought to fruition by this great God. It is not just the gentile world, or all of Islam, or the Palestinians, but the Jews themselves who kick at His overpowering determination. The next Biblical event will be the removal of a remnant of "born again" Christians from the great Apostate Church. The Church Age will end, and the Kingdom promised to Abraham will begin with seven years of great tribulation aimed at the redemption of the Jews first. The LORD Jesus Christ will return as the King of the Jews. The King of Glory! He will not be the victim of any of the hate filled cultures this time. He suffered, and shed His blood to wash away sin once and for all. He will never do that again. Now, is the time for victory. The Bible will never take a back seat to the Koran. The end of the Church Age also ushers in the end of the times of the gentiles. A Jewish Kingdom will be the only acceptable dispensational change that will be tolerated by this awesome God! All who would kick at this giant will find judgment. The days of longsuffering are coming to an end! Dispensational change is intended to re-establish purity, righteousness, and holiness to the planet. Mercy and grace will still be available, but righteous rule with a rod of iron will be the giant's method of governing for 1000 years. All cultures will be forced to submit to the puritanical rule of the LORD Jesus Christ. There will be no rebels. There will be no kicking at perfect holiness. This perfect Kingdom is coming soon to the Holy Land, Jerusalem, and the Temple Mount! Are you ready? Are you washed in the blood of the Lamb?
The Land and the promises can never be separated. Gerar is now part of the modern Gaza. The God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob is not going to tolerate any Jew, or Jews from giving it to the heathen Palestinians. Not during this generation!
"Thy Kingdom Come, They Will be Done!"

Hamas Indicates It Will Challenge Arafat

RAMALLAH, West Bank (AP) - Israeli troops pushed into the northern Gaza Strip and killed at least two Palestinians, witnesses said, while new signs emerged that the violent Hamas group is preparing a political challenge to Yasser Arafat despite a series of blows from Israel.
The incursion into Gaza came late Tuesday, the day Palestinians marked the fourth anniversary of their bloody uprising. Military sources speaking on condition of anonymity said Israel was trying to stop Palestinian militants from firing rockets at nearby Israeli towns.
About 30 Israeli tanks moved into northern Gaza, witnesses said. Palestinians said a 22-year-old Hamas militant was killed in an exchange of fire with Israeli forces near the Jebaliya refugee camp. Gunmen took up positions to resist the Israelis, they said.
Violence continued early Wednesday when two Palestinians, including a 14-year-old boy, was shot and killed by Israeli forces near the camp, Palestinians said. They said 10 other Palestinians aged 12 to 21 had been wounded by Israeli forces after they threw stones at Israeli jeeps and armored vehicles.
Separately Wednesday, a wanted Palestinian man was killed in the West Bank city of Nablus when he tried to flee Israel troops who had come to arrest him, the army said. Palestinians identified the man as Majdi Halifa, a member of the Al Aqsa Martyrs' Brigades, which is linked to Arafat's Fatah movement.
Hamas published newspaper ads urging supporters to vote in upcoming municipal elections, saying ``it's time for change.'' A top Hamas leader also indicated that the group may challenge Arafat in presidential elections, which have not yet been scheduled.
The Israeli military had no immediate comment.
Looking back on Tuesday at four years of Palestinian-Israeli violence, the Palestinian premier said both Israel and the Palestinians should reassess their positions.
``We need an evaluation of these four years,'' said Palestinian Prime Minister Ahmed Qureia. ``Where have we been right and where have we been wrong. What did we achieve and what didn't we achieve?''
The uprising erupted on Sept. 28, 2000, after Ariel Sharon, then Israel's opposition leader, visited a sensitive Jerusalem hilltop revered by Jews and Muslims. Palestinian riots broke out, and five months later Sharon defeated Ehud Barak in a special election for prime minister.
The fighting has taken a heavy toll on both sides, killing more than 3,000 Palestinians and nearly 1,000 Israelis.
But Israel appears to have gained the upper hand. It has confined Arafat to his West Bank headquarters for three years and killed hundreds of leading militants. The Palestinian economy is in tatters.
In a sign of Palestinian weariness, a recent opinion poll by An-Najah University found that two-thirds of Palestinians now support a cease-fire with Israel.
``The uprising has not been defeated, but it has not brought victory. Frankly, it is now closer to defeat than victory,'' wrote commentator Hani al-Masri in the Palestinian daily Al Ayyam.
Sharon has abandoned peace talks with the Palestinians and instead launched his ``unilateral disengagement'' plan meant to separate the two peoples. The plan includes a huge barrier complex being built along the West Bank, as well as a complete pullout from Gaza next year.
Hamas is vying with other groups for a prominent role after the Israeli withdrawal from Gaza. Despite Israeli assassinations of its top leaders, the group still wields great influence in its Gaza stronghold.
On Tuesday, Hamas published newspaper ads urging its followers to register to vote in local Palestinian elections, which are scheduled to begin on Dec. 9. ``Fellow citizens, it's time for change. It's time to register your name,'' the ad said.
A strong Hamas campaign could pose a formidable challenge to Arafat. The veteran Palestinian leader consented this month to holding municipal elections in response to widespread discontent over his corruption-plagued government.
Arafat has long resisted elections, saying Israeli military occupation of the West Bank and Gaza Strip make orderly voting impossible. But critics accuse him of making excuses at a time of growing dissatisfaction with his rule.
Hamas, which has carried out dozens of suicide bombings against Israel, is committed to the destruction of the Jewish state. Even so, Palestinian officials welcomed Hamas' participation in the political process as a sign of moderation.
``If Hamas participates in these elections, this will enforce the possibility that Hamas will be closer to a political settlement,'' said Hassan Abu Libdeh, the Palestinian Cabinet secretary.
Palestinian officials also expressed hope that the Hamas announcement will spur people to register to vote.
The Palestinian Authority launched a voter registration drive on Sept. 4 in the West Bank, Gaza Strip, and east Jerusalem. But few have heeded the call, with many saying they did not believe the process would bring any real change. The registration period ends in early October
Hamas or the Palestinian Authority? Osama ben Laden or Saddam Hussein? Such "either or" solutions are no solutions at all. A wise politician should withdraw from making such choices. A deadly snake is a deadly snake no matter what color it may be. Hamas and the Palestinian Authority both are the enemies of the Bible! Neither will ever submit to the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. The culture they have formed can only respond in hate to the Biblical future prescribed in the Bible. This culture has sold it's soul to the Koran which teaches Islam that the murder of Jews is a virtue. The same Jews the God of the Bible calls the apple of His eye! The remnant within the gentile Christian Church have submitted to the Jewish Christ of the Bible, and found salvation. The majority of Christians who turned Christ into a gentile will be left behind. Soon, Islam is going to be confronted with this same Jewish King who is about to rule the whole world from the Holy Land, Jerusalem, and the Temple Mount. He can't be transformed into a Moslem Messiah any more then He can be transformed into a gentile. He is Jewish through and through! He came to the Jews first the first time, and He is coming to the Jews first this second time. The true Christian Church will be removed at the rapture leaving only the Jews to respond to His call for redemption.
In the Old Testament, the gentiles were left out. A few like Caleb, Rahab, Ittai, Ruth etc. found grace in the eyes of the LORD, but the masses of their brethren were left in the darkness of their paganism. I know from my personal studies in the Bible that God would have all men saved, but most would rather have the Allahs and Mohameds of hate then the Holy God of the Bible. Most of the gentile world rejects the Jewish Biblical Christ who shed His blood so sinners can be saved. They will be cast into hell for all eternity as have all the generations that have preceded this generation. So great a salvation requires so great a response when rejected.
Hamas or Palestinian Authority, it matters not. The Holy Land is not for them! Greater things are planed by the God of the Bible. It will be the Jews who will be redeemed first. A few gentiles will find redemption, but it will only be in the context of the Jewish Christ. The whole world is about to be confronted with the necessity to submit to the Jews. It will be their Jewish King who will demand all submit to Him for salvation! Submitting to Christ will be the same as submitting to Biblical Judaism during the Millennial reign. All the Old Testament redeemed gentiles submitted to Judaism, and so also will all the Kingdom Age redeemed gentiles submit. Judaism as the God of the Bible always intended it to be will be the only religion allowed during the Kingdom Age. All sacrifice in the millennial Temple will look back in remembrance of Calvary! The atoning blood of Leviticus will find full redemptive power only as it is understood in relation to Calvary. All religion, all government, all cultures will be integrated together in Christ, and Christ alone! Nothing else will be allowed when the King of Glory reigns from the Holy Land, Jerusalem, and the Temple Mount!
