Articles of the Day 8/19/15: Not A Bad Deal For A Terrorist
Inner Ring (Countries or terror groups that border Israel)
“Al Qods commander Gen. Qassem Soleimani, acting on the orders of Iran’s supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, this week set up a new Iranian command to fight Israel, DEBKAfile reports exclusively from its military and intelligence sources.
It has been dubbed the Eastern Command of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards.The Al Qods Brigades, which are the external terrorist arm of the Guards, are organized according to sectors, with commands for Hizballah, the Palestinians, Syria, Iraq and the Gulf.
Their newest sector is the Eastern Command which, our sources report has been assigned as its first task to start handing out weapons, including missiles, to any Palestinian West Bank group willing to receive them. Tehran’s object is to transform the West Bank into a territory hostile to Israel on the model of southern Lebanon which is ruled by the armed Hizballah and the Gaza Strip under the Hamas and Islamic Jihad terrorists.”
“The country already presented two compromise proposals to end Islamic Jihad terrorist Mahmoud Allan’s hunger strike. He refused both of them. Israel’s Internal Security Minister: “We should fight against terrorism and to not look for compromises.”
Not a bad deal for a terrorist. Kill a Jew, hunger strike, get freed , return to terror. Rinse repeat.
“Visiting frontier with Lebanon days after large scale drill, prime minister says Israel is ready to strike ‘at those who try to harm us’”
“WASHINGTON (AP) — The Obama administration is quietly reviewing the future of America’s three-decade deployment to Egypt’s Sinai Peninsula, fearful the lightly equipped peacekeepers could be targets of escalating Islamic State-inspired violence. Options range from beefing up their protection or even pulling them out altogether, officials told The Associated Press.”
So afraid of conflict the Obama administration is considering removing peacekeepers who have been there for 30 years. Yeah that will send a good message to their allies.
Outer Ring (countries or terror groups that are close to but not bordering Israel)
“DEBKAfile’s military sources report that the Russian arms lift to Damascus continued Wednesday with a delivery by An-124 transports of heavy Russian M-46 MM1954 130 towed field guns with range of up to 27 km. Monday and Tuesday, as DEBKAfile reported on Aug. 18, six Russian MiG-31 Foxhound interceptor aircraft touched down at the Mezze Airbase in Damascus international airport, followed An-124 transports, which delivered 1,000 Kornet-9M133 anti-tank guided missiles.”
“The short clip, produced by the Islamic Revolution Design House and brought to light by the Investigative Project on Terrorism, begins by showing terrorists preparing for battle, while bearing the insignia of a range of Iranian-sponsored terrorist groups – including Iran’s own Revolutionary Guards Corp, the Iraqi Badr Organization, Hezbollah and Hamas.”
Wow, the Iranian movie makers must have recently saw the movie 300.
“Republican Senator Mitch McConnell acknowledges President Obama has ‘great likelihood of success’ in successfully vetoing vote against.”
The Israelis likely already know this and have probably already put into motion their plan to counter Iran. I believe, as soon as Obama is out of office the Israelis will attack Iran.
“Iranian defense minister says deal already reached, just needs to be formalized; system would prevent airstrikes against nuclear sites.”
This deal has been announced so many times I have lost count. Will Israel hit them immediately or wait until Hezbollah gets them?
“Pope Francis is making a plea for the union of many faiths. He reportedly said recently, “Jesus Christ, Mohammed, Jehovah, Allah. These are all names employed to describe an entity that is distinctly the same across the world.” He opened the door to Muslim prayers at the Vatican.
Can you say one-world religion?
Pope Francis is headed for the White House, Congress, and the U.N. in a few weeks! He will be pushing climate change and “sustainable development” which is again all about global government! One has to wonder where he fits the gospel into his agenda. It doesn’t appear as though it does. One writer calls him a “wolf in Pope’s clothing.”
Put it all together: Marxism, environmentalism, new world order, global government, sustainable development, the Jesuit agenda, unity of faiths, a global constitution, a global court, a departure from Catholic traditions.”
“Bible prophecy is one of the most ignored topics in churches today. Pastors avoid it like a plague. They usually assert that it is either too controversial or too difficult to understand. They often claim it is too other-worldly, meaning it has no relevance to Christian living here and now. The result is that one-fourth to one-third of God’s Word has been put on the shelf, and the average Christian ends up living with no anticipation or even yearning for the Lords’ soon return.”
“The organization that has released six videos exposing the scandal of Planned Parenthood selling aborted babies and their body parts has released a new undercover video today with another shocking discovery. This latest video catches the nation’s biggest abortion business harvesting the brain of an aborted baby who was still alive.”
This is child sacrifice to the god of money. We are no better then the Canaanites who worshiped Molech. May the Lord put a stop to this terrible, horrible, disgusting practice. Defund Planned Parenthood!
“Q. With evil running rampant in the world today, I feel increasingly angry and cold blooded toward those involved. I find it difficult to pray for them. Instead I want God to rain down judgment on them.
My heart still breaks for the unsaved I’m in daily contact with, but those committing the extreme evil I read about it no longer does.
I know this isn’t a road I want to go down. I also know I’m not really all that good myself, an undeserving sinner saved by grace.
What advice would you give?
A. It’s hard not to feel the way you describe, especially if you’re talking about the people responsible for taking the world in this direction.
These people have consciously chosen a direction in defiance of God’s will and as such have identified themselves as His enemies.
Even so , the Lord would have us pray for them. Not that they would prosper in their way, but that they would come to a knowledge of the truth and be saved (1 Tim.2:3-4).
That’s because no matter how much evil they’ve brought into the world, you really don’t want them to suffer the fate of the condemned.”
As difficult as it is, Jack is right.
