Inner Ring (Countries or terror groups that border Israel)
“Alert Border Police officers spot 14-year-old terrorist trying to sneak past security checkpoint, in arrest find he was hiding a knife.”
This is sad. Palestinian attackers are so young. I believe their families are coercing them to attack because then the families get paid handsomely by the PA if their children attack. This is why Israel threatens to deport the families of the attackers and destroy their homes. The families make their own children become murders. This is why the PA is so evil. They destroy Palestinian families and their children all with Western aide. It is basically child sacrifice.
“Shocking figures show how government isn’t planning to take deterrent steps on homes of half the Arabs who tried to murder Jews.”
“New film shows terrorists aiming advanced rocket launcher at IDF vehicle, warning ceasefire will end over Israeli ‘breaches.'”
Militant was on an ‘operational mission’ in tunnel east of Gaza City when he was killed, Hamas says, offering no explanation for cause of collapse.
It’s happening so often now it seems unlikely it is Hamas incompetence. Workers are now afraid to enter the tunnels. This slows the work. Hamas would take precautions to reassure the workers so they will work. Israel has found a way if not too completely counter the tunnels or at least slow down their construction. Such a waste. All the resources put into attacking Israeli civilians could be better used to rebuild Gaza for the Palestinian people. Why doesn’t the UN condemn this work?
“Israel’s reclassification of the property does not change existing use, but it does pave the way for Israel to develop the mostly empty desert terrain.”
The US is being hypocritical.The Obama administration has stolen thousands of square miles of land from US ranchers robbing them of their livelihood. Israel simply wants to develop on the land (their own land) which God gave them. It is not right for the US to judge.
“Syrian rebels, Hezbollah, IS and other extremist terror groups threaten the tense quiet on the northern border, senior officer says.”
Outer Ring (countries or terror groups that are close to but not bordering Israel)
“Watchdog group says Islamic State positions near ancient city bombarded to help latest Assad regime offensive.”
“MOSCOW — President Vladimir V. Putin of Russia on Monday ordered the withdrawal of the “main part” of Russian forces in Syria, a surprise move that reflected what he called the Kremlin’s achievement of nearly all its objectives in the war-torn country.”
Russian goals have been achieved. The Assad regime will survive. I think the article is spot on that this is more about putting pressure on Assad to accept peace proposals. Assad is in a much better place to accept a peace proposal generous to the regime. Assad however, may have different plans. It will be interesting to see what Iran and Hezbollah do now that momentum has clearly swung in Assad’s favor. The war has been a drain on them and they are eager for it to end.
“On March 8, 2016, Saudi journalist Muhammad Aal Al-Sheikh wrote in his column in the Saudi daily Al-Jazirah that today, Iran is the No. 1 enemy of Saudi Arabia and the Gulf countries, supplanting the historical enemy Israel. Any citizen of the Gulf who disagrees with this assessment, he added, is a traitor.”
“Iran’s battlefield losses have continued even after the drawdown of forces it surged into Syria late last year and the subsequent ‘cessation of hostilities,’ raising questions about Tehran’s strategy and tactics in the war.”
“The law differentiates between Israeli and other foreign investors, banning Israelis from renting or buying real estate in the entire Petra region.”
This is interesting because many believe that Petra is the area where Israelis will flee too escape persecution by the anti-Christ in the last days. God will protect them there and the anti-Christ will not be able to harm them.
“Last month, U.S. Attorney Andy Luger said he was working on additional funding, both federal and private. He pointed to a bill President Barack Obama signed into law in December that includes $50 million for efforts that combat terrorism as a possible source. Luger noted that $10 million of that appropriation is specifically for states’ efforts to prevent violent extremism, though it’s not yet known how much of that money will flow to Minnesota.
In a parallel effort, Minnesota lawmakers have also allocated $250,000 to programs designed to combat terror recruiting. The Department of Public Safety announced last month that it will soon start the process of awarding grants, with priority given to programs that will lead to long-term investment in communities most at risk. Meanwhile, House Democrats have also announced that they’ll push for another $2 million to dedicate to combatting terrorism in Minnesota.”
This is a foolish waste of money. It only emboldens Muslims to demand more. Your governments are being exhorted by Muslims through threat of terror.
“Man who stabbed two Canadian soldiers at a recruitment center in Toronto says he was told to do so by “Allah”.”
Western politicians keep telling us there is nothing to fear from Islam. The facts speak for themselves. Beware of the lies of politicians.
“After a tidal wave of refugees poured into Europe last year, some countries began erecting political and physical barriers to migration, which have left tens of thousands of refugees stuck in squalid conditions in the Balkans this spring.”
The world has indeed failed the refugees. Mostly the Arab world. This is because of fear that terrorists might be among the refugees. But also the change in culture as a result millions descending upon Western host countries. As I stated before, a vast majority of the refugees simply seek safety and peace from war. These people need to be shown mercy. Trust God, show these people mercy and you will be protected. Pray to God that you may overcome your fear. It’s interesting the refugees are fleeing to Western countries and not closer Middle East countries. They know there is a better chance of mercy in the West.
