Inner Ring (Countries or terror groups that border Israel)
“From ‘free’ homes with strings attached to taxes for police calls – Hamas’ tricks for fleecing Gaza, fooling world about ‘Israeli blockade.'”
“How does a teenager decide to skip school one day put a knife in his or her backpack to stab an Israeli? How does one decide not to show up for work because they want to ram their car into Israelis waiting at a bus stop? Where does this drive to kill come from?”
The Palestinians have created a culture of hate and killing. Every bit as bad as NAZI Germany. Only difference is that Israel can defend itself.
“In waning days of his presidency, Obama reportedly looking to UN Security Council to force Israel to divide Jerusalem.”
Obama….a friend of Israel? Nope. Will Clinton be much better? Nope. See below.
“The abuse Israel’s leaders suffered at the hands of the Obama administration is becoming more and more evident. There have been dozens of emails revealed from Hillary Clinton’s private server that have countless numbers of her aides and advisers attacking Israel and its elected leadership. Clinton herself has admitted in the past that she was the “designated yeller” at Benjamin Netanyahu. In this upcoming last batch of emails, there was still a hope that some positive emails towards Israel would have been found. But it doesn’t seem to be the case.”
“Islamic movement spokesman Zahi Nujidat says seminars offered by a Jewish organization on the third Temple endangers the al Aqsa Mosque, a holy site for the Islamic world. This three-part seminar held throughout Israel with tens of thousands in attendance, included a virtual tour of the Temple Mount, an explanation of the daily Temple life as well as a job description for the kohanim, the priests. The Islamic spokesman said the seminars are a serious threat and a drastic move toward the establishment of a Jewish Temple on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem in place of al Aqsa Mosque which is the third holiest site in Islam.”
This is one of many reasons why the Palestinians are attacking. Sorry but virtual tours are not justification for murder. Until people in the Islamic movement are stopped Palestinian attacks will continue. Why can’t Jews build a temple? IT’S THEIR LAND!
“Dr. Eilat Mazar, professor at Hebrew University in Jerusalem and the leader of the archaeological team digging at the City of David, has unearthed proof of another biblical story, this time a story of one of the ministers of King Zedekiah from the period of the Babylonian invasion of Jerusalem. A completely in tact seal impression or “bula” bearing the name of Pashur was uncovered only a few feet away from a second such seal which was found three years ago, this first seal also belonging to a minister of King Zedekiah. Dr. Mazar remarked that this archaeological find is absolutely fantastic and very special, and again gives proof of the authority and authenticity of the biblical account of the city of Jerusalem and the Babylonian captivity of the Jewish people.”
“US Vice President Joe Biden reportedly offered division of Jerusalem, total ‘settlement freeze’ in exchange for very little; Abbas refused.”
Just as well. It was a bad peace plan. Like they all are.
“It has been a half of year since the beginning of the wave of terror and the IDF is increasing their efforts to fight against Palestinian incitement. Channel 2 News accompanied the IDF as they went door to door, warning young people about incitement on social media.”
“Fatah and the Palestinian Authority celebrated yesterday’s murder of Taylor Force, an American tourist who was visiting Israel with Vanderbilt University. Fatah’s official Facebook page posted a drawing of a knife held over the PA map of “Palestine” that includes all of Israel and the PA areas.”
Disgusting. The US should withhold all aide that goes to the PA.
“Citing uptick in stabbing and shootings, diplomatic mission urges Americans to ‘maintain high degree of personal awareness’”
Beware, don’t let your pastor fool you. They will say it is so safe in Israel so you pay money to join their trip to Israel. Don’t do it. It is not safe there!
“Ministers approve completion of Jerusalem-area fence, steps to curb illegal Palestinian entry and incitement.”
Not really dwelling securely I would say.
“PA foreign ministry condemns Israel’s ‘executions’ of terrorist murderers, and relies on radical leftist Israelis for ‘proof.'”
Outer Ring (countries or terror groups that are close to but not bordering Israel)
“Iraqi government forces make fresh gains against Islamic State in Ramadi, retaking key town and setting their sights on another.”
“Sky News gives British intelligence purported details of 22,000 fighters it received from disillusioned ex-jihadist.”
“Captured ISIS operative proves to be a treasure trove of intel, helping US launch first air strikes on the jihadists’ chemical weapons.”
Wow, lots of bad news for ISIS this morning.
“Islamic State has greatly expanded its control over territory in Libya and the militants are claiming to be the key defense for the North African state against foreign military intervention, United Nations sanctions monitors said.
In their annual report to the UN Security Council, which was released on Wednesday, the monitors also said Libya has become more attractive to foreign fighters who mainly arrive through Sudan, Tunisia and Turkey.”
I think most ISIS leaders know their time in Syria and Iraq is almost over and they have relocated to Libya.
“Q. Thank you for your insight! I glean your site 7 days a week. I was watching a well known Bible teacher on tv today, and he referred to 2 Thes. 2:3, and said that the “falling away” was the rapture of the Church. However, I looked up “falling away” in my Strong’s concordance, and # 646 says “Apostasia.” Am I missing something here?
A. Prior to the King James Translation of 1611, the Greek word “apostasia” was translated as departure, not falling away, and was thought to refer to the Rapture of the Church. This view was apparently taken from the root word “aphestemi” which can mean departure as well as falling away. Even though falling away has been the preferred translation for over 500 years now, some still cling to the earlier interpretation to show evidence that Paul taught the Thessalonians a pre-trib Rapture.
But you don’t need to make that stretch to demonstrate Paul’s pre-trib position. The whole 2nd Thessalonians letter only makes sense if Paul had taught them a pre-trib Rapture. Think about it. They were horrified at being told that the Day of the Lord had come. Why? If they were post trib they would have concluded that the 2nd Coming was only seven years away. But if they were pre-trib such news would mean that they has missed the Rapture, and that would mean that they weren’t saved. Now that would be cause for the kind of alarm their letter to Paul conveyed. (2 Thes. 2:2) Paul explained that the Day of the Lord couldn’t come until three things take place. The falling away, or apostasy, the removal of the restraining power holding the anti-Christ back, and finally the anti-Christ’s official introduction.
The first of these three is underway with the Emergent Church movement and the splitting up of the Evangelical Church over environmental issues. The second is the soon coming Rapture of the Church, and the third is the Abomination of Desolation that Jesus also spoke of in Matt. 24:15.”
“‘Radically’ anti-Israel Penny Green has accused Israel of apartheid and ethnic cleansing, called for its total boycott, UN Watch says.”
You can always count on the UN to elect the most antisemitic human available. Where do they find these people?
“According to NGO Monitor, a new document published by the US Presbyterian Church promotes the BDS Movement against Israel and downplays Palestinian terrorism: “International law gives an occupied people the right to armed struggle to resist the occupier.”
So blind and foolish the US Presbyterian Church is. This shows they are not reading the Bible or studying covenants between God and Israel. They also ignore Bible prophecy to their peril. God clearly gave the land to Israel. And God clearly defends Israel. These guys need to spend some time in Genesis.
18 On the same day the Lord made a covenant with Abram, saying:
“To your descendants I have given this land, from the river of Egypt to the great river, the River Euphrates” Genesis 15:18
“3 I will bless those who bless you, And I will curse him who curses you; And in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed.” Genesis 12:3
