WELCOME BROTHERS AND SISTERS WHO ARE WILLING TO STUDY TO SHOW YOURSELF APPROVED

 THERE IS NO EVIDENCE OF ANY  BIBLE VERSES SHOWING  7 YR PRE TRIBULATION RAPTURE

BIBLE VERSES EVIDENCE:

While JESUS was alive, He prayed to His Father: "I pray not that thou shouldest take them out of the world, but that thou shouldest keep them from the evil.  John 17:15 (KJV)

JESUS gave signs of what must happen before His Return:  "Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken:"  Matt. 24:29 (KJV)

 "For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:   Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord." I Thess. 4:16-17 (KJV)

"In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised imperishable, and we shall be changed."  I Corin. 15:52

The "Resurrection" has been erroneously labeled The "Rapture". 

  9 For God/JESUS hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by JESUS

KJV

        JESUS IS COMING SOON!

       We are followers of JESUS Only

 Seekers of the truth start here by praying

to the Holy Spirit to reveal the truth to you. 

Acts 17:10-12

10 And the brethren immediately sent away Paul and Silas by night unto Berea: who coming thither went into the synagogue of the Jews.

11 These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so.

12 Therefore many of them believed; also of honourable women which were Greeks, and of men, not a few.
KJV

Luke 21:25-28

25 And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring;

26 Men's hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken. 

27 And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory.

28 And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.

Global oil and gas Jihad against Israel
April 10, 2012


New blast hits Egypt gas pipeline to Jordan and Israel.



The gas pipeline has been blown up by Islamic terrorists for the 14th time in less than two years.

This Attack is the 14th to hit Sinai since Mubarak’s fall; pipeline remains closed from similar explosion in February.

An explosion hit the Egyptian pipeline carrying gas to Israel and Jordan on Monday for 14th time since the uprising against president Hosni Mubarak began last year, security sources said.

The blast took place in the northern Sinai at the entrance of the Mediterranean coastal town of Al-Arish. Residents in the city told Reuters they had heard the sound of the explosion.

Source: Jerusalem.com

My comment:

The Muslim Brotherhood wants to revoke the “peace agreement” between Egypt and Israel. First and foremost because Egypt had to accept the Sinai to be a demilitarized zone, that could not be used for Jihad”sits to fire rockets into Israel.

But also because the oil fields on the Sinai, had to deliver oil and gas into Israel and keep the Zionist state alive.

Jodan is another enemy of the Muslim Brotherhood. Because the Kingdom accepted a “Peace agreement” with Israel in 1994. So the gas from Egypt shall not be used to uphold this anti-Jihad Jordanian Kingdom.

Norway is a part of this Islamic oil and gas Jihad. The largest oil producer in Europe has signed an agreement with the Arab League, to join their oil embargo in the Jewish state. Just like Iran. Even to this Islamic Republic is not a member of the Arab League.

The cold war on Israel can very easily trigger another hot war in the Middle East. The Jews will simply not permit its leadership to lead them towards a second Holocaust. Benjamin Netanyahu is crystal clear. No new Holocaust on his watch.

Jesus the Messiah said that there will be terrible times ahed, and a horribly defaulted hatred towards Jews, who has its roots in satanic paganism of different kinds.

All true Christians will rejoice the global Jihad as a way to hell. We will stand with Israel and the Jewish people in their time of trouble. Amen.

Joe Biden blame Middle East for higher oil price
April 10, 2012


The US Vice President Joe Biden blames everyone in the Middle East for higher prices at the petrol pumps.



Joe Biden is only one heart beat from the Presidency of the USA.

Vice-President Biden blamed higher oil prices on “talk about war with Iran”.

He fear that Iran might “take out the Saudi oil fields and Bahraini oil fields”.

Biden is concerned about the Arab Spring movement; the “war in Libya”; the rise of the Muslim Brotherhood; and a potential for unforeseen political unrest, such as “chaos in Russia.”

Oil prices are going up because the world economy is consuming more oil and supply has not increased to meet the demand.

One might argue that the market should price strategic risk into the oil price, but the fact is that markets are not especially good at assigning prices to possible events whose probability can’t be measured.

The price of oil tracks economic growth expectations. It is statistically absurd to seek another reason. The problem is not risk, but supply. The only way to reduce gas prices is to drill for more oil.

Source: Gatestone Institute.org

My comment:

Vice President Joe Biden should make America her self take the blame for the present chaos in the Middle East.

Five per cent of the Worlds population live in the US. They consume 20 per cent of the global resources. 25 per cent of Americans consumption of oil has to be shipped out from the Persian Gulf.

To protect her self interests, the US has based her 5th fleet in Bahrain. That Saudi Arabia is a totalitarian Islamic dictatorship is not one of Joe Bidens concerns. As long as the American dream lives in, to hell with human rights, freedom and democracy for the people of the Middle East. The Saudi oil fields must be protected at all costs.

Up to the day of the fall of Hosni Mubarak, He was presented as a “peace maker” in the Middle East. Likewise did Gaddafi receive a red carpet welcome in cities like Rome and Paris.

Joe Biden represents the ugly American face of unlimited double standards and hypocrisy.

US Vice-president honored by nuclear Pakistan, tells Israel to bomb Iran
April 10, 2012


In January US Vice-president Joe Biden received an awards from the nuclear armed Pakistani government. Two days ago he confirmed that : «If Israel wants to bomb Iran, we can’t stop them». Joe Biden is accepting honor in one Islamic nuclear nation, and telling Israel to bomb another Islamic nation to try to stop it from going nuclear.



The US Vice President receive an award from the President of Pakistan

Can anybody trust Joe Biden?

Three years ago senator Joe Biden said Israel «have to reconcile themselves to the reality of a nuclear-armed Iran». According to the Israeli newspaper Haaretz, Biden, a six-time Delaware Senator and chairperson of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, told the «amazed» officials, «It’s doubtful if the economic sanctions will be effective, and I am against opening an additional military and diplomatic front».

January 9th 2009: The nuclear armed Pakistani President Asif Ali Zardari conferring the award of «Hilal-i-Pakistan» to US vice president-elect Joe Biden at The President’s House in Islamabad. Biden met Pakistan’s president to discuss tensions with India and the anti-terror fight in South Asia, This was only 11 days before he took office with Barack Obama.

On Saturday, In an interview with ABC’s George Stephanoupolos, vice president Joseph Biden said in answer to a question: «Look, Israel can determine for itself — it’s a sovereign nation — what’s in their interest and what they decide to do relative to Iran and anyone else».The interviewer asked: «Whether we agree or not?»: «Whether we agree or not», said the vice president.

This was the first time a senior Obama administration official left Israeli the military option against Iran’s nuclear sites. DEBKAfile’s Washington sources note that the vice president has the reputation for fast draws which are sometimes later modified by «clarifications». If this time Biden’s statement was coordinated with the president, it would mean that the administration has withdrawn its veto against Israel’s resort to military action to curtail Iran’s drive for a bomb before diplomacy has been fully tested.

Source: The DEBKAfile’s

My comment:

Israel has to be careful putting their trust in Joe Biden. As late as May 24th, the US Vice President was in Lebanon. There he meet the Lebanese Defense Minister Elias Murr, and promised to provide the Lebanese defense with 42 fighter jets as well as helicopters.



Joe Biden with President Suleiman in Lebanon in May. Biden came to bring peace to Israel by selling fighter jets to a nation that does not recognize the Jewish state.

For what do Lebanon want fighter jets? Are they going to use them to disarm Hizbullah? May be there one day will be Hizbullah pilots in these Jets, attacking Israel?

The US should have waited till Lebanon recognizes Israel`s right to exist, before promising the unstable Lebanese government attack weapons.

That Joe Biden as late as January 2009 accepted that «Hilal-i-Pakistan» award from the Government of Pakistan, should tell us about a man that seeks fame, rather than wisdom and justice. If Al Quaeda ever will get their hands on a nuclear bomb, they will get one from the Islamic Republic of Pakistan.

It is the hight of hypocrisy to go and get honored by an Islamic nuclear nation, and in the next moment tell Israel to do the dirty job of stopping another Islamic nation from developing a nuclear bomb.

Anyhow, Joe Biden is a Roman Catholic. He will not stand with Israel in her trouble, but rather support the Vatican in the Papal effort to force a false peace upon Israel. If Israel has to go against Iran alone, you can be sure that forced peace will be just around the corner. With the US, Russia, China, United Nations, EU, Pakistan and the rest of the Islamic World , all crying foul against Israel. In regards to Israel, most of the nations in this World are ruled by leaders who are hypocrites, like Joe Biden. Hypocrites from they get up in the morning till they go bed in the evening.

US Jewish students gets fake eviction notices
April 10, 2012


- More than 200 Jewish students at Florida Atlantic University’s Boca Raton campus received fake eviction notices from a pro-Palestinian group.



Israeli students in the US face persecution by mockers.

The notices were posted March 30 by the campus group Students for Justice in Palestine, the Florida Jewish Journal reported April 5. The notices were posted to draw attention to the alleged number of Palestinian home demolitions by Israeli troops over the past three decades.

Some of the students who did not read the notice carefully thought that they were actually being evicted, a Jewish student told the newspaper.

“We’re considering it a hate crime,” Rayna Exelbierd, 20, a Jewish student who received a fake eviction notice, told the newspaper. “The flier promotes hate; it doesn’t promote peace. People were scared by it. People felt threatened by it.”

The fliers contained the university housing department’s official stamp.

“The recent mock eviction postings did not comply with the policies of University Housing and Residential Life or the Office of Student Involvement and Leadership concerning the distribution of printed material, and therefore the postings were removed,” Charles Brown, FAU’s senior vice president for student affairs, said in a statement.

Andrew Rosenkranz, director of the Anti-Defamation League’s Florida region, said the university is going to open an investigation into the incident.

My comment:

Jew-hate dies hard even in America.

All who see me mock me; they hurl insults, shaking their heads:

Behold: The Messiah Jesus will judge all who defame and demonize his brothers and sister in the flesh.

At An Hour When Ye Think Not



Beirut, Lebanon—a spring night in 1973. The streets are teeming with people in what was once considered a jewel of the Middle East. That was before the PLO moved in.

The story goes that Ehud Barak was wearing a dress, strolling arm-in-arm down the street with “her date.” The future prime minister of Israel also had an Uzi tied around his waist, and dangling between his legs, if I may say it that way.

Barak, commander of the famed and elite counter-terrorism unit, Sayeret Matkal, was about to spring a surprise on key PLO leaders, this in retaliation for the ghastly Munich Olympics murders of 1972. Israeli premier Golda Meir approved the operation, dubbed “Operation Spring of Youth.”

The Munich killers were relaxing. Their minds were far from danger.

Members of the unit, which included Yoni Netanyahu, older brother of another future prime minister, landed onshore that evening, where they were met by Mossad agents, who drove them to and from the apartment building where the operation took place.

In the ensuing firefight, three PLO operatives were killed, and other Israeli commandos engaged in a savage battle nearby with members of the PFLP (Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine).

I was reminded of that legendary story this week—as were other writers—when Barak (now Israel’s defense minister) gave the order for security forces to remove “settlers” in Hebron who have not proven their ownership of property to the government’s satisfaction. The Jewish families were removed while preparing for Passover—a swift and stunning surprise just when it appeared they had won the day via public opinion.

With news that Barack Obama has cowardly sent secret messages to the Iranians, via Turkey, that he will accept the terror state’s “civilian” nuclear ambitions, the stakes are ramped-up even higher regarding the mullah’s deadly intentions toward the Jewish state.

This is relevant to the story of the Hebron settlers, and how Barak dealt with it.

It is perhaps here that we are seeing clues to how the Israelis will deal with this existential threat. I have said before that I am quite sure they are not going to Auschwitz again, and will never again allow themselves to be vulnerable. The only way Jews will remain safe in our world today is if they have guns and sundry other weapons.

Barak’s handling of both the ’73 operation, and the recent one in Hebron are good indications that the man plans strikes that occur without any kind of warning. Such is what I expect regarding Iran and its nuclear threats. Everyone is scanning the skies for an Israeli airstrike; I expect something quite different.

Remember too the incredible Entebbe raid, which Barak helped plan, and which Yoni Netanyahu led as commander of the rescue force. So sudden was their appearance in the dark African night at Entebbe Airport that the lead commando told me once the terrorists holding 105 men, women, and children did not know what was happening until he was in the doorway.

Something tells me that Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is going to get a bomb dropped down his shorts while he brushes his teeth one night in the not-too-distant-future.

When the smoke clears, there won’t be so much as Israeli fingerprints left behind.

Obama’s pitiful overture to the Iranians comes on the heels of news that SWIFT (Society for Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecommunication) was cutting off dozens of Iranian banks and financial institutions from its systems. Naturally, the Iranian people heard little about this, but officials, such as former Intelligence Minister Ali Fallahian and Mahmoud Ahmadi, director of the Central Bank both threatened the West and claimed they had already taken measures to overcome the SWIFT decision.

(By the way, another issue not directly tied to Iran’s race for nuclear weapons opens a fascinating window into just how interconnected global financial transactions really are, and one can see clearly how close we are to a system in which a single charismatic person will “solve” our problems. In a note from the Meir Amit Intelligence and Terrorism Information Center , we read:

“Mohammad-Reza Behzadian, former chairman of the Iranian Chamber of Commerce, warned about the possible repercussions of Iran’s disconnection from the international clearing house. In an interview given to the Iranian Diplomacy website, Behzadian said that, with Iranian banks cut off, even smaller banks that do not depend on the United States and were so far willing to continue cooperating with Iran will be unable to perform transactions with it. Behzadian estimated that it will be impossible for Iran to continue doing business securely using old-fashioned telecommunications systems, and that the country’s disconnection from SWIFT will lead to an increase in the costs involved in conducting international banking transactions.”

Sound like an antichrist system in development to you? Me too.)

Further, Iran’s economy is highly dependent on raw material and capital import for the agricultural and industrial sectors; it is not hard to imagine the very real economic sanctions causing Iranian currency to implode.

However…one must remember that the old Soviet Union was well on its way to economic meltdown and bankruptcy at the same time it developed nuclear weapons and built up its military infrastructure to menace the entire world.

I do not believe sanctions will prevent the Iranian regime from developing and potentially using nuclear weapons.

That will leave the one-time gun-toting “girl” on a Beirut street—and “her” military and diplomatic team of former fellow elite commandos to make the most momentous decision of their lives.

Cameron promote Sharia-law and order in Indonesia
April 13, 2012

David Cameron: “Indonesia is a model democracy for Muslims, that does not compromise security”.




David Cameron wants more trade from Indonesia, and praised its Muslim rulers.

Indonesia’s respect for democracy and minority religious groups should serve as an example for other Muslim nations, Mr Cameron said.

In Jakarta, capital of the world’s most populous Muslim nation, Cameron called on groups such as Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood, which has a conservative vision of Islam, to look to Indonesia’s for tips on nation building following the Arab Spring that toppled long-time Middle Eastern autocrats.

“What Indonesia is showing is that it is possible to develop a democracy and a modern economy that neither compromises people’s security nor their ability to practise their religion,” Mr Cameron said.

Source: The Telegraph.no

My comment:

Her is some news from April 9th, 2011, from Power Line Blog


Sharia In Indonesia:
Indonesia has long been held out as a country where moderate forms of Islam flourish. Perhaps so. But sharia law has been adopted in a number of areas in Indonesia. The effect was seen yesterday, when four people were caned in Aceh province on the island of Sumatra. The presumed offense was adultery, although commission of the actual act was not clear; the couples were punished, technically, for being in “close proximity.” Here, a woman named.



Indonesian woman Irdayanti Mukhtar is caned:

87.18 per cent of Indonesians identified themselves as Muslim.

If the Nazi-chuches in Germany had survived World War II, David Cameron would have landed in Berlin and praised a “peaceful” nation, where almost 100 per cent “agreed” on what religion to f follow.

When 81 per cent of the population in a nation have become Muslims, there will always be a Muslim President, and a Supreme Court ruled by Muslims.

That is what David Cameron desire. No need to say that Muhammad is a false prophet, and that the Koran promote the slaughter of people who “force” Islam to be a religion of the minority.

Even though only 7 per cent of the people in Indonesia are Protestant Christians, Radical Muslims still slaughter followers of Jesus, and burn down their churches. The model Islamic nation for David Cameron should not be Indonesia, but his allied in NATO, Turkey.

That is a nations who successfully slaughtered all their Armenian Christians in 1915-1916. There are only 0,2 per cent Christian left, a “great achievement” for the followers of Muhammad.

Catholic footballers in Spain submit to Sharia
April 13, 2012


Real Madrid changing cross logo for Muslim fans, sponsors in the Arabian world.



Love of money is the root of all kinds of evil. Also for Real Madrid, who submit to the demands of Sharia.

Real Madrid, the Spanish soccer powerhouse, will be making changes to their logo to appease and hopefully gain Muslim soccer fans.

After having the same logo for close to a century, Real Madrid is going to remove the cross from the top of the crown that lies within their insignia.


The cross is an offense to Koran-obeying Muslims.

The Marca newspaper in Spain quoted a source in the club’s administration who said the change was decided upon in hopes of, “avoiding all forms of misunderstanding and conflict in the regions where the majority of the population is Muslim.”

The change in logo goes hand-in-hand with Real Madrid’s building of a $1 billion sports tourist resort in the United Arab Emirates. The resort will be the world’s first theme park placed on an artificial island.

Source: New Jersey Newsroom.

It is easy to mock all who warn against the enforcement of Sharia in Europe.

The chime attitude of submission of the football club Real Madrid is only one of many examples.

Catholic Spain has been under Islam before. From 711 A.D to 1492 A.D.

Sine the Pope promote that all sons of Abraham, including the Muslims is a part of “god’s” plan for salvation, it would hardly matter is Spain is under Islamic of Catholic rule.

Catechism of the Catholic Church



841 The Church’s relationship with the Muslims. “The plan of salvation also includes those who acknowledge the Creator, in the first place amongst whom are the Muslims; these profess to hold the faith of Abraham, and together with us they adore the one, merciful God, mankind’s judge on the last day.”

Evangelical’s who side with this wicked religion presented as “Christianity”, please keep in mind the warning from Jesus our Messiah.


Luke 21: 16

You will be betrayed even by parents, brothers, relatives and friends, and they will put some of you to death.

Reject the falsehood of both the Vatican and Islam. They work for unity based on a wicked compromise, and will lift up the final antichrist as their common global leader. The false prophet and a beast has already signed the peace agreement between the two largest religions on the face of Earth.

Jewish Rabbis: «Catholics and Jews should make final peace»
April 13, 2012


«Catholics and Jews are brothers and sisters deeply bound by their fervent belief in the one creator of heaven and earth».


Pope Benedict XVI at the Park East Synagogue in New York just before the start of the Jewish Sabbath, in April 2008.



This are viewpoints of Rabbi Dr. Eugene Korn and Rabbi Dr. Shlomo Riskin. They have published a letter in Jerusalem Post. This is their conclusion and advice, in regards to Catholic-Jewish relations:

The reconciliation of the Church with the Jewish people is one of God’s great blessings, one that inspires all people around the world. If the Church and the Jewish people can make peace with each other after nearly 2,000 of enmity, then peace is possible between any two peoples anywhere.

Recognizing that Catholics and Jews are brothers and sisters deeply bound by their fervent belief in the one creator of heaven and earth who revealed Himself to the people Israel is one of the miracles of the last century – and it is too important for Jews, for Catholics and for the world to allow to lapse.


Rabbi Dr. Eugene Korn

Jews and Catholics share a common spiritual patrimony and all people of good will should pray that both the Church and the Jewish people continue to work for this historic reconciliation grounded in mutual understanding, respect and equality.

Source: Jerusalem Post.

Rabbi Dr. Eugene Korn is the North American Director of the Center for Jewish-Christian Understanding and Cooperation, Rabbi Dr. Shlomo Riskin is the Chancellor.

My comment:

It sounds loving and sweet that Catholics and Jews serve the same God, called the creator. But if that is the truth about «god», than also the Muslims should be included.


Rabbi Dr. Shlomo Riskin

But the this kind of «unity» is not based on the truth. Because the creator is a tribune God, of Father, Son and Holy Spirit. In fact all the three major faith`s on Earth rejects the tribune God, and in particular that the Son is the only way to our Father in Heaven. In Judaism «Jesus» is not found to be the Messiah. In the Catholic faith His saving blood is denied, and His glory not to be found in obedience to His words, but rather in worship of statues of wood and stone.

A unity outside of the faith in the Jewish Messiah, Jesus of Nazareth, is falsehood. It will only lead to the final false universal religion of all faiith`s lead to the one and only God the creator. Omitting the need to repent from sins, and accept the only valid redemption that is found in the blood of Jesus.

Jesus not invited to Jerusalem Prayer Banquet
April 13, 2012


The Messiah is not invited to the “peace process” that will make people of all faith united around the future of Jerusalem.


Robert Stearns and Pat Robertson are deceivers of the flock, promoting end time unity of all faiths in Jerusalem.

The Jerusalem Prayer Banquet, to be held in New York City next month and feature former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee as a guest speaker, promises to offer attendees a new perspective on the importance of Jerusalem for people of all faiths.

The event was organized by Eagles’ Wings, a global mission community with a network of supporters in Germany and Jerusalem founded by its executive director Dr. Robert Stearns.


”First of all, I hope that people will realize that people of every background – Jewish, Christian, Muslim, agnostic, people of every background who believe in human rights and human freedoms, [will] find themselves linked together in the question of Jerusalem’s future. I am hopeful that will be a new perspective for some,” said Stearns.

Source: Christian Post

My comment:

What do “Christian” leaders such as Jack Hayford, Frederick K.C. Price, Pat Boone, John Hagee, and Harry Jackson have in common?

If you have 100.000 US dollar available for donation, you will get the right to wine and dine with them at a banquette in New York.

And they promote “end time unity” of all faiths in Jerusalem.

These “preachers” do not preach that Jesus is the Messiah to Jews, and that those who rejects him will perish. They are more or less convinced that the gospel is an office to Jews, and that the blood of Jesus do not save Jews form eternal condemnation.

The blood of Jesus is only for the gentiles, to whom they preach. And in particular for people with money. Men like John Hagee preach that “poverty is a curse”.

Christian preachers must stand with Israel is regards to their right to have a state of their own, with Jerusalem as their not dividable capital.

But support for the “Judeo Christian” heritage will not save a single soul. Christians who are followers of Jesus must continue to preach like John the Baptist to both Jews and pagans. Repent or perish.

The Pope Prays for World Without Borders
April 13, 2012


Pope Benedict the XVI says that Jesus wants a world without borders and that everyone should be united as one human family.


The Pope is hailed as a great Global leader in the United Nations.



On World Migration and Refugee Day, the Pope said that Jesus was an refugee when he fled to Egypt with His parents. He said he is looking forward to the day where all people around the world see each other as brothers.

The pope quoted from Vatican II to explain the Church’s goals. From “Nostra aetate,” he said:


Who is like the Pope, who has followers across all the borders?

“One is the community of all peoples, one their origin, for God made the whole human race to live over the face of the earth.”

From the document “Lumen gentium,” he said:

“The Church in Christ like a sacrament or as a sign and instrument both of a very closely knit union with God and the unity of the whole human race.

For this, it is fundamental that Christians, despite being dispersed through the world and …diverse by culture and traditions, be a single thing, as the Lord wishes.”


The Pope works for a World without borders, with Him self as the religious head.



The pope spoke of Christian Unity week Jan 18-25, emphasizing the oneness of Christians. He also mentioned January 17 as the day of Jewish-Christian dialogue and how it was important to unite in the common roots of Judaism and Christianity.

My comment:

The Pope is praying for world government, plain and simple.

He is calling for a world without borders. He wants everyone to be ONE, as one big happy family. This is a very new age philosophy and it is of course, the Antichrist plan.



The United Nations put their hope in the Pope. He is branded as the global man of peace.

There is no utopia of brotherhood on earth.

That is the plan of Lucifer. He is setting up his earthly kingdom through all the governments of the earth. The Pope is in agreement with this plan and is fooling millions of Catholics around the world.

After the governments agree to have one world government the Pope will lead the one world religion. This plan seems to be picking up speed and it is as if nature itself is crying out with all of the animal deaths worldwide.

John 18:36

Jesus answered, “My Kingdom is not an earthly kingdom. If it were, my followers would fight to keep me from being handed over to the Jewish leaders. But my Kingdom is not of this world.”

What peace? Israeli TV shows air force gearing up for an attack on Iran



April 15, 2012 – ISRAEL – A major Israel TV station on Sunday night broadcast a detailed report on how Israel will go about attacking Iran’s nuclear facilities in the event that diplomacy and sanctions fail and Israel decides to carry out an attack. The report, screened on the main evening news of Channel 10, was remarkable both in terms of the access granted to the reporter, and the fact that his assessments on a strike were cleared by the military censor. No order to strike is likely to be given before the P5+1 talks with Iran resume in May, the reporter, Alon Ben-David, said. “But the coming summer will not only be hot but tense.” In the event that negotiations fail and the order is given for Israel to carry out an attack on Iranian nuclear facilities, “dozens if not more planes” will take part in the mission: attack and escort jets, tankers for mid-air refueling, electronic warfare planes and rescue helicopters, the report said. Ben-David said the Israel Air Force “does not have the capacity to destroy the entire Iranian program.” There will be no replication of the decisive strikes on Iraq’s Osirak reactor in 1981 or on Syria in 2007, he said. “The result won’t definitive.” But, a pilot quoted in the report said, the IAF will have to ensure that it emerges with the necessary result, with “a short and professional” assault. Ben-David said that if negotiations break down, and Iran moves key parts of its nuclear program underground to its Qom facility, the IAF “is likely to get the order and to set out on the long journey to Iran.” “Years of preparations are likely to come to realization,” he said, adding that “the moment of truth is near.” Ben-David interviewed several squadron leaders, pilots and other officers. He noted that some of the IAF personnel, “it is likely, will not return from the mission.” An officer named Gilad said it would be “naive” to think there would be no losses.



The IAF is said to be worried about the advanced anti-aircraft systems that Russia has sold to countries in the region, the report said. Among those systems, the SA 17 and 22 in Syria and Iran present a challenge, according to the report. According to the report, it’s the older versions of the F-15 that can fly further than any other plane in Israel’s arsenal, and this puts it on the front line of any potential attack. One pilot said in the report that the F-15, or ‘Havaz,’ “is a plane with a very wide range of operation — a combination of relatively energy-efficient engines, and significant flightworthiness regarding weapons and fuel.” The IAF has a full-sized unmanned plane, the “Eitan,” that is said to be able to fly to Iran, the report added. “This plane can do all that is required of it when the order is given,” a pilot said, without elaboration. The attack, the report said, would presumably trigger a war in northern Israel, with missile attacks (presumably from the Iranian-proxy Hezbollah in Lebanon). “There will no tranquility and peace anywhere in Israel,” Ben-David said. This could be the first full-scale war the IAF has fought in nearly 30 years, the report stated. Pilots had already been told where their families would be moved, away from their bases, for safety, the report said. –Times of Israel

Israel with written welcome note to provokers
April 16, 2012


The Israeli government issue a welcome letter to pro “Palestinian” activist who flew into Israel to create trouble.




Benjamin Netanyahu turn the tables on the totalitarian forces who try to defame Israel.

The Prime Minister’s Office published on Saturday the text of a welcome letter that will be handed out to pro-Palestinian activists.

The letter “thanks” activists “for choosing to make Israel the object of you humanitarian concerns.”

“We know there were many other worthy choices,” it says, and goes on to list a number of other such “choices”: Syria, Iran and the Hamas-ruled Gaza Strip.

“ You could have chosen to protest the Syrian regime’s daily savagery against its own people, which has claimed thousands of lives,” the letter says.

“You could have chosen to protest the Iranian regime’s brutal crackdown on dissent and support of terrorism throughout the world.”

“You could have chosen to protest Hamas rule in Gaza, where terror organizations commit a double war crime by firing rockets at civilians and hiding behind civilians.

The letter states that activists chose “to protest against Israel, the Middle East’s sole democracy, where women are equal, the press criticizes the government, human rights organizations can operate freely, religious freedom is protected for all and minorities do not live in fear.”

The text concludes by suggesting that the activists “solve first the real problems of the region, and then come back and share with us your experience,” before wishing them “have a nice flight.”

Needless to say more.

Benjamin Netanyahu said it all.

UK: Christians are persecuted and vilified
April 16, 2012


Christians are being “persecuted” by courts and “driven underground” in the same way that homosexuals once were.




Lord Cary warns of increase in persecution of Christians in the UK.

These are the words of former Archbishop of Canterbury, Lord Carey.

He claims worshippers are being “vilified” by the state, treated as “bigots” and sacked simply for expressing their beliefs.
The attack is part of a direct appeal to the European Court of Human Rights before a landmark case on religious freedom.

In a written submission seen by The Daily Telegraph, the former leader of more than 70 million Anglicans warns that the outward expression of traditional conservative Christian values has effectively been “banned” in Britain under a new “secular conformity of belief and conduct”.

His comments represent one of the strongest attacks on the impartiality of Britain’s judiciary from a religious leader.
He says Christians will face a “religious bar” to employment if rulings against wearing crosses and expressing their beliefs are not reversed.

“It is now Christians who are persecuted; often sought out and framed by homosexual activists,” he says. “Christians are driven underground. There appears to be a clear animus to the Christian faith and to Judaeo-Christian values. Clearly the courts of the United Kingdom require guidance.”

Source: The Telegraph.co.uk

My comment:

I am not an Anglican, but I agree with the analyze of this former Archbishop.

For Secular people the difference between a Conservative Anglican, a Bible obeying baptist or a pentecostal is immaterial.
If not Christians want to get rid of Christianity, they will go after us all.

The Bible explains that the great apostasy will start in the Church. Conservative Anglicans will first and foremost be betrayed by other corrupt and apostate Anglicans.


Luke 21:16
You will be betrayed even by parents, brothers, relatives and friends, and they will put some of you to death.

Many Christians have started to preach a twisted or corrupt “gospel”. A born again Christian do not have to worry by attacks from pagans. False brethren are a mush greater threat for the true Church of Jesus the Messiah.

Australia permits people to be hybrid “X” beings
April 16, 2012


In Australia a new race is being breaded. They are neither male or female, but gender “X”.




Gay parades all over the Planet display the ultimate ugliness of sodomy and rebellion against God their creator.

Previously, travellers were not able to change sex on their passport unless they had had surgery.

This is still the case in many countries, although any nation under the International Civil Aviation Organization’s authority is eligible to introduce category ‘x’.

In Britain, people do not have to have had an operation to change their passport details, as long as they have evidence that they are permanently living in a new gender role

She said: ‘”X” is really quite important, because there are people who are indeed genetically ambiguous and were probably arbitrarily assigned as one sex or the other at birth.

‘It’s a really important recognition of people’s human rights that if they choose to have their sex as “indeterminate”, they can.’
Kevin Rudd, Australia’s foreign minister, said: ‘This amendment makes life easier and significantly reduces the administrative burden for sex and gender diverse people who want a passport that reflects their gender and physical appearance.’

Peter Hyndal, who negotiated with the Australian government on the reforms on behalf of human rights advocacy group A Gender Agenda, said the new guidelines were in line with more flexible approaches to gender in U.S. and British passports.
‘It’s amazingly positive,’ he said. ‘It’s the biggest single piece of law reform related to transgender and intersex issues at a commonwealth level ever in this country – mind-blowing.’

Source: Daily Mail.co.uk

May comment:

Nazi-leader Adolf Hitler has not only a mass murderer. He was also a confused man, who had his own race theories. One of the was that a new race of super beings had to be breaded.




Australian passport display hybrid beings of various kinds.

God crated Adam and Eve. Not Adam and Edward. There is no gender “X” in God’s creation.

In the last days, people shall be vile mocker’s of God. Like in the days of the tower of Babel, man shall try to act like God.

The days of unlimited number of god-mocker’s are here. They will be shortened for the sake of the elect. For it is hard to live with the mental trauma of seeing all kind of filth being presented as “normal” and worthy of praise.


Genesis 1:27
So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them.

May Jesus have mercy on all perverts. He nailed their guilt and shameless behavior to the cross, too. Like all of us, they need to repent and worship God in spirit and in truth.

Secular forces loosing the war in Afghanistan
April 16, 2012


Militants have staged a wave of co-ordinated attacks on the Afghan capital Kabul and other locations.



Yesterday: An Afghan security officer take shelter behind the symbol of American secularism. The market share for Mac Donald's is at risk.

Foreign embassies, Nato’s HQ and the Afghan parliament were hit in the first major attack on Kabul in more than six months.
The attackers also struck in the provinces of Logar, Paktia and Nangarhar. The Taliban said it was the start of a “spring offensive” .

Two Afghan security force members and 17 militants were reportedly killed.

A further 17 Afghan police officers and nine civilians were injured, the Afghan interior ministry said.

Source: The BBC.

My comment:

The picture of an Afghan security officer hiding behind an American hamburger, is a valid illustration of the lost war.

The secular forces in Afghanistan do not longer have any clue what they are fighting for. The war has now lasted twice the length of World War II. The is not clear picture of who the enemy is, not what a peaceful solution will bring.

Islam is now portrayed in the west as a religion of peace, and NATO has already fought together with Islamic Jihad in Libya.

So why keep on fighting in Afghanistan?

The Bush-Blair war on terror has not brought peace, nor human rights and democracy to the Muslim World. It has only contributed to the radicalization of the Islamic World, and led to mass recruitment to Jihad.

Down at the end of the line, we can see the West and Islamic word unite. The common enemy of “world peace” will be Zionist Israel.


Isaiah 40:2
Speak tenderly to Jerusalem, and proclaim to her that her hard service has been completed, that her sin has been paid for, that she has received from the LORD’s hand double for all her sins.

Behold: God of Israel do not slumber, nor do He sleep. His Son Jesus the Messiah has set watchmen on the wall of Jerusalem. They will not keep quiet, day or night.

The fall of Saigon to be copied in Baghdad
April 16, 2012


The last Americans were evacuated from the US Embassy in Saigon on 29th of April 1975. Soon we will see similar pictures from Baghdad.




May the last American in Baghdad switch the light off. Like they did in Saigon.

This is what happened in the last days of American imperialism in Saigon:

“The final days of the Fall of Saigon began when the North Vietnamese forces commenced their final attack on April 29th, 1975. Heavy artillery bombardment ensued for most of that day and night. On April 30th, North Vietnamese Troops had occupied most strategic points of the city and finally overtook the South Vietnamese presidential palace”.

This is what will be copied in Baghdad.

Yesterday, Islamic forces blew up bombs in 13 cities in Iraq, to celebrate the US sending their combat troops home. Like the Viet Cong, al-Quada will now zoom in on the Green Zone in Baghdad.




This is not East Jerusalem or Berlin. This is the Green Zone in Baghdad.

The Green Zone in Baghdad is an American “cocoon” that holds up the puppet regime in Iraq. It is a fenced and walled fortress build around the area where the American Embassy is located.

The Americans have acted like Israel.

Israel has set up a fence trying to keep Islamic suicide bombers out of Jewish cities and townships in Israel.

Like hypocrites, Washington has criticized Israel, using the same protective measure in Iraq as the Jewish state has implemented around their capital.

And the most amazing event will now take place in Washington: On 1st of September there will be ” Peace talks between Islamic Jihad promoters and Israel”.

Based on the Pentagon failure in Iraq, Obama feels he has the authority to export the US failure to Israel, and teach the Jews how America now will be able to guaranty the safety of the state of Israel.

Who do they think they are fooling?

I guess around five billion people on Earth, who are watching the latest soaps on their TV, paying no attention to News That Matters.

Hatred



A few years ago, at the height of the controversy over the Israeli pullout from Gaza, I visited with Caroline Glick in the lobby of the Mount Zion Hotel.

Listening to Caroline—I believe her to be the finest pure journalist anywhere today—give a hard-eyed assessment of the fallout from the pullout, with a backdrop of the Old City walls in the picture window behind her, I couldn’t help but wonder why this type of sane reasoning can’t find its way into politics.

Caroline, the Jerusalem Post’s deputy managing editor (I highly recommend her book, Shackled Warrior: Israel and the Global Jihad), is petite, but don’t let that fool you. A reserve officer in the IDF, she made aliyah in 1991, from her native Chicago. She doesn’t mince words, and her assessments of both the political and military situation in the Middle East is dead-on. I am reminded of the comment from CAMERA’s Andrea Levin a few years back, speaking of the insipid Anthony Lewis: “He’s always wrong.”

(Lewis often liked to lecture Israel from the safe confines of his ivy covered cottage in Cambridge, where he filed his Washington Post op-eds. After a Jordanian machine-gunned a group of Israeli girls during their school outing in 1997, Lewis wrote about it, somewhat lamenting the incident in the first paragraph, then bashing Israel’s Benjamin Netanyahu for the next 13 paragraphs.)

Well, if one described Caroline Glick’s writing: “She’s always right.”

Recently in the JPost, she got down to brass tacks regarding Barack Obama’s true intentions toward Israel, when she said that his “hatred” for the Jewish state would certainly come out from behind the mask if he gets a second term.

And don’t think for a minute that Bibi Netanyahu trusts him. In fact, the Israeli premier—who was seeing combat in his country’s most elite counter-terrorism unit while Obama was in bed at night reading Saul Alinsky by flashlight—wouldn’t trust the American president to get him a glass of water.

Obama’s astonishingly disingenuous speech before AIPAC was a classic in double-speak (he is another in a long line of presidents who claim to be Israel’s best friend, presumably supplanting biblical figures like Rahab, and extending all the way to Ord Wingate and Arthur Balfour).

What Obama is angling toward is having Israel’s neck in his hands during a second term. The Iranian threat is growing so grave that Israel will have to act soon.

The Americans have longer-range capabilities to knock out Iran’s nuclear facilities. At the very least, a joint effort with the Israelis would surely do the job.

Yet Obama is fully intent on not lifting a finger and forcing Israel to act alone. Once Iran moves enriched uranium and centrifuges to its facility at Qom, it will be too late. This is key, because while Obama publicly pushes sanctions and dispatches his Cabinet ministers like Leon Panetta to bully and threaten the Jewish state, the Iranians know he has their back. And, just like the theory of evolution, time is the core ingredient.

The PA’s Mahmoud Abbas told American officials that because Obama publicly demanded that Israel stop building in the so-called “settlements,” he, Abbas, had no incentive to sit at the negotiating table with Israel. This kind of nonsense is quite harmful both to Israeli and American interests.

Yet Obama’s foot soldiers in the media give him cover.

I held my nose the other day and purchased a TIME special edition called “The New Middle East.” It is of course full of the usual Hansel and Gretel fables about the Arabs, with some deft Israel-bashing thrown in for good measure. What really stands out, though, is a piece at the very end by Joe Klein.

I consider Klein to be one of the most mediocre and undiscerning writers of the last generation, but here he is with this platform. In “What America Can Do,” Klein makes the following inane-yet-fawning statement:

“One of the more remarkable aspects of the Arab Spring, from an American point of view, is that Barack Obama saw it coming.”

Klein lives in an alternate universe.

All American presidents have classified information not available to the rest of us, and can “see things coming” months before they do. But Klein was elevating Obama to seer-like status.

Klein also made one of those statements that bears further examination and reflection:

“Chaos is a strong possibility for the region, but not the only one. A simple-minded American looks at Egypt’s parliamentary election results, sees 70% of the seats going to Islamists, and assumes trouble.”

Did you notice that pejorative, “simple-minded American”?

He means us, of course.

Obama and his sycophant followers in media believe we are stupid. Wouldn’t it be nice to see him retired early next year?

If he isn’t, both Israel and the American people will suffer the consequences of coddling state sponsors of terrorism. Among other things, this race-baiting, enemy appeasing, political thug from Chicago knows exactly what he’s doing. It’s not that he’s stupid, as some allege.

The president’s hatred is on full display.

Netanyahu: Jewish people still face existential threat
April 19, 2012


“Our enemies tried to bury the Jewish future but our future was born again in the land of our forefathers”.



Benjamin Netanyahu at Yad Vashem in Jerusalem.

These are the words of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Holocaust Remembrance Day at Yad Vashem in Jerusalem.

“Here we built a base, and a new beginning of freedom, and hope and action.”

In his speech, Prime Minister focused on Iran, calling it a threat to Israel and to world peace.

Source: Israeli Daily Haaretz.

My comment:

The European culture birthed both Fascism and Nazism. The Holocaust did not take place in a vacuum. It was a fruit of false theology in the Church, teaching fellow pagans that God is finished with the Jews.

Today all nations of copying the mistakes of Fascists. Again the Jewish people are attacked form all side, demonized as the root to instability in the World.


Zechariah 12:3
On that day, when all the nations of the earth are gathered against her, I will make Jerusalem an immovable rock for all the nations. All who try to move it will injure themselves.

The prophetic words will be fulfilled by Jesus. The scriptures tells us that He will come back and terminate all who have worked against his plans for the restoration and rebuilding on the mountains of Zion.


Isaiah 52:7
How beautiful on the mountains are the feet of those who bring good news, who proclaim peace, who bring good tidings, who proclaim salvation, who say to Zion, “Your God reigns!”

The Messiah will take all nations to judgment. Still most people do not care.

The people of Europe rejected the Messiah in Europe 75 years ago. Likewise the present generation rejects Him today.

If they do not repent, they will all perish.

Egyptian war: The Empire strikes back
April 19, 2012


Egypt panel definitively bars top 3 presidential candidates from elections.




Omar Suleiman do not mind being barred from the President election.His fiends are still in power. The regime is buying time.

Egypt’s election commission rejected the appeals of three main contenders for president Tuesday, definitively removing the most polarizing candidates from the race to become the country’s first elected leader since the ouster of Hosni Mubarak.

The commission’s decision removes the top contenders in the race — Mubarak-era strongman Omar Suleiman, Muslim Brotherhood chief strategist Khairat el-Shater and Abu Ismail, a lawyer turned hard-line preacher. The panel had announced their disqualification over the weekend, shocking many in the country. Each appealed the decision but on Tuesday the panel rejected the appeals.

The disqualification of the three diminishes the chances that an Islamist candidate will win the presidency, but there are worries over the fallout from the decision, particularly from the supporters of one of the barred candidates, ultraconservative Islamist Hazem Abu Ismail.

The generals said over the weekend the constitution should be drafted before a president is elected, raising concern that the elections might be postponed if the document is not ready in time.

Source: The Washington Post

My comment:

The military dictatorship in Egypt strikes back.

The generals have a trump ace. The people of Egypt have no clue what democracy is all about, and frankly they do not care.

People are more conserved with getting bread. After the so-called “Arab spring started”, the Egyptian economy has moved form bad to worse. Slowly the Egyptian accept that the military regime at least offers some kind of predictability and stability in the midst of chaos.

The Muslim Brotherhood is also not ready to take over power. Simply because there is no clear agreement within the movement, for the way ahead.

The military regime will now that what time there is to draft a new constitution. For Israel the uncertainty is prolonged. Lets wait and watch.

Ban on gay healing ad in London
April 19, 2012


The mayor of London blocked a conservative group’s transit ads suggesting that people could “get over” being gay.



London has banned this ad from appearing on the public buses.

Anglican Mainstream, a worldwide orthodox Anglican group, has started legal proceedings against the Mayor of London following his ban on a bus poster campaign implying that gay men and lesbians can change and become heterosexual.

“We have instructed our lawyers to take action against Boris Johnson for inducing one of Britain’s leading advertising companies, CBS Outdoor, to abort our campaign, which was due to start on April 16 and run for two weeks,” Canon Christopher Sugden, executive secretary of Anglican Mainstream, told ENInews on April 13.

Days before posters were due to appear on 25 of London’s red double-decker buses reading

“Not gay! Post gay, ex-gay and proud. Get over it,”

Johnson ordered his transport chiefs to pull the advertisements.

The signs mimicked the wording of ads presently carried on the sides of several hundred London buses organized by the pro-gay group Stonewall.

They read: “Some people are gay. Get over it.”

Sugden described the mayor’s intervention and the ban as “outrageous” and “an assault against freedom and democracy.

“

Anglican Mainstream and a companion Christian group Core Issues Trust said their campaign, estimated to cost 5,000 pounds, had been cleared with Transport for London, which is chaired by the mayor.

Johnson said in a statement released to The Guardian newspaper that “London is one of the most tolerant cities in the world and intolerant of intolerance.

It is clearly offensive to suggest that being gay is an illness that someone recovers from and I am not prepared to have that suggestion drive around London on our buses.”

Source: Anglican Journal.com

My comment:

The totalitarian forces in Europe wants to remove the freedom of speech from the public domain. People who quote the Bible, are branded as hate-criminals. In particular of they say that homosexuality is sin, and that gay’s can be healed from this confusion in regards to sexual behavior.

Gay’s will be saved if they beg for mercy and repent. Jesus the Messiah died for all kinds of sins. Also gossips and white lies.

The Bible explains that Jesus gave the prophet Daniel special insight in regards to the end of the age. The Scripture is made available for all who are willing to read.


Daniel 12:7
The man clothed in linen, who was above the waters of the river, lifted his right hand and his left hand toward heaven, and I heard him swear by him who lives forever, saying, “It will be for a time, times and half a time. When the power of the holy people has been finally broken, all these things will be completed.”

All Bible obeying Christians, and even Jews, must be aware that there will be little or less support for God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob in our days. The Messiah has warned us in advance, that just before his Return there will be apostasy, deceptions and confusions.

Jesus said: – Watch out, so no one deceive you.

Jordanian army blew up the Hurva synagogue in 1948
April 19, 2012


During British rule in Jerusalem the Hurva Synagogue was the most important in Israel. In 1948, the invading Jordanian army blew it up.



Islam tried to destroy the Hurva Synagogue in East Jerusalem. Now its been restored

The Hurva, whose name means «ruin» was initially built by disciples of Rabbi Judah Hahasid in the early 18th century. It was destroyed shortly thereafter by Muslims demanding the return of loans given to build the synagogue.

After it was rebuilt in the mid-19th century, it became the most important synagogue in the country, but it was blown up in 1948 by the Jordan Legion a few days before the fall of the Jewish Quarter in the War of Independence.

In 2001, after years of debate, the government decided to restore the building.

Now Orthodox Jews and Ultra-Orthodox Jews have a debate on what kind of services should be offered in the restored synagogue. Should it be come a closes place of worship, or should it also be open to women and tourists.

Those who wants an open house of prayers, say the reconstructed synagogue should present the historical saga of the Jewish Quarter, display archaeological finds unearthed there, and be fully accessible to tourists, men and women together. The group wants to prevent a round-the-clock kollel (yeshiva for married men) from opening there, which would preclude any other activity.

However, for the ultra-Orthodox, the matter is unequivocal: “The question is whether this will be a synagogue and a house of study, or a display of all sorts of foolishness,” the Jewish Quarter’s rabbi Avigdor Nebenzahl said on an ultra-Orthodox Web site.

The Jordanian Kingdom of Islam showed its true colors in 1948. In a bid to delete the Jewish heritage in East Jerusalem, the invaders from the East blew up and destroyed 55 Synagogues and Jewish religious schools.

During the seize and Islamic occupation from 1948 to 1967, the Jewish people were not given access to this Apartheid state in East Jerusalem, and the so-called West Bank. It had become a closed Muslim zone, and a model for the racist state a new promoted Arab Palestinian statehood would look like.

In 1967 East Jerusalem was liberated by the Zionist state, and the city was again open to people of all faiths.

The Hurva Synagogue must be kept open to all lovers of israel and the Jewish people, tourists like me. The Government of Israel must display the evil of the Jordanian army. Let this place of worship forever be a testimony of how Islam tried and still tries to delete the Jewish heritage of East Jerusalem.

- A 15 minute film about a new perspective for peace between the Israelis and the Palestinians based on the discovery of the formerly classified minutes from the San Remo peace conference of April, 1920. This long hidden document explains the legal rights of the Jews as well as the Palestinians. By returning to the negotiating table and respecting historical facts and international law the film believes there can be real peace between Israel and the Palestinians.

The elephant of Jew hatred



Hatred of Jews is the central animating feature of the political and strategic reality of the Middle East. It is hatred of Jews that dictates the legal regimes, foreign policies, military aspirations, cultural mores, educational themes and even public health policies of our neighbors from Ramallah to Tehran.




Despite the centrality of Jew-hatred in all aspects of public life in the Arab and Muslim world, our neighbors' unrelenting and irrational abhorrence for Israel and the Jewish people remains a dirty secret that you aren't supposed to mention in polite company. From Washington to Brussels, talk of the policy implications of Arab and Muslim Jew-hatred is prohibited.




Omar Abu-Sneina, a convicted terrorist murderer, is one of the thousand Palestinian terrorists that Israel released from prison in order to secure the release of Israeli hostage IDF Sgt.- Maj. Gilad Schalit. Originally from Hebron, Abu-Sneina was released to Hamas-controlled Gaza.




This week the IDF announced that since his release Abu-Sneina has returned to the terror business. The Shin Bet (Israel Security Agency) intercepted a computer memory card he sent his family in Hebron with instructions for how his fellow terrorists should go about kidnapping and holding IDF soldiers hostage. The instructions demonstrate how for Abu-Sneina, Israelis don't even deserve to be treated like animals.




Among other things, he discussed how to hide a hostage. As he put it, "Avoid hiding [the captive soldier] in desolate places, tunnels or forests, unless the aforementioned [captive] is a corpse or a severed head. If the aforementioned is a live human, that must be visited at least once a week and provided with food and drink, it is best to hide him in a house, an agricultural farm, a workplace, etc."




Abu-Sneina's coldblooded cruelty and rejection of the inherent value of the lives of Israelis is not simply a function of the fact that he is a terrorist. It is a reflection of the values of Palestinian society. Those values are continuously expressed and reinforced by Fatah- and Hamas-controlled media outlets, cultural and educational institutions and religious authorities. The ubiquitousness of Jew-hatred in the daily lives of Palestinians is so overwhelming it is difficult to imagine any facet of Palestinian life that isn't inundated by it.




Take grammar lessons. According to a translation provided by Palestinian Media Watch, the Palestinian Authority's Arabic language matriculation examinations for high school students include questions such as "Punctuate the underlined phrase: Do not view the occupier as human." And "Punctuate the underlined phrase: We shall die in order that our land may live."




THIS WEEK, a Palestinian court sentenced Muhammad Abu Shahala to death for selling a home in Hebron near the Cave of the Patriarchs to Jews. Shahala was arrested shortly after several Jewish families moved into the house last month. He was reportedly tortured and quickly tried and sentenced to die by a PA court.




The PA was established in May 1994. The first law it adopted defined selling land to Jews as a capital offense. Shortly thereafter scores of Arab land sellers began turning up dead in Jerusalem and Judea and Samaria in both judicial and extrajudicial killings.




Leaders of the Jewish community of Hebron wrote a letter to international leaders this week asking them to intervene with PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas and demand that he cancel Shahala's sentence. They addressed the letter to UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, President of the European Council Herman Van Rompuy, the director-general of the International Red Cross, Yves Daccord, as well as Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and President Shimon Peres. In it they wrote, "It is appalling to think that property sales should be defined as a 'capital crime' punishable by death.




"The very fact that such a 'law' exists within the framework of the PA legal system points to a barbaric and perverse type of justice, reminiscent of practices implemented during the dark ages."




They went on to make the reasonable comparison between the PA's law prohibiting land sales to Jews to Nazi Germany's Nuremburg laws that constrained and finally outlawed trade between Jews and Germans. The letter concluded with the question, "Is the Palestinian Authority a reincarnation of the Third Reich?"




The Palestinians of course are far from unique in their obsession with hating Jews. Their hemorrhage of hatred, their obsessive need to reject any move towards peaceful coexistence with Israel, or what the renowned late Palestinian poet Yousuf Al Khatib referred to picturesquely as "the Jewish filth of Europe," is matched in every Arab land. And of course, it is the primary obsession of the Iranian regime.




The parallels between Nazi laws and the laws of the PA and the Arab states that outlaw all cooperation with Israel and make such cooperation a capital offense are obvious and straightforward. Yet generally speaking, anyone who points out this fact is automatically dismissed as an alarmist or an extremist. Given the PA's relative military weakness when compared with Israel and the Arab world's current lack of interest in waging active war against Israel, noting their inarguable ideological affinity with the Nazis is considered socially and even intellectually unacceptable. The fact that they lack the ability to implement their ideology renders it improper to mention it.




The social prohibition on drawing parallels between the threats facing Israel today and those that faced the Jewish people 70 years ago is not limited to the discourse on the Arab world's conflict with Israel. It also extends to polite society's discourse on Iran's nuclear program, which the Iranian regime has repeatedly made clear is aimed at destroying Israel.




In his address to the nation at the annual Holocaust Remembrance Day ceremony at Yad Vashem on Wednesday evening, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu took aim at that taboo when he attacked those who accuse him of belittling the Holocaust by comparing the annihilation of European Jewry to the threat posed by Iran's nuclear weapons program.




Netanyahu said, "I know there are also those who believe that the unique evil of the Holocaust should never be invoked in discussing other threats facing the Jewish people. To do so, they argue, is to belittle the Holocaust and to offend its victims.




"I totally disagree. On the contrary. To cower from speaking the uncomfortable truth - that today like then, there are those who want to destroy millions of Jewish people - that is to belittle the Holocaust, that is to offend its victims and that is to ignore the lessons.




"Not only does the prime minister of Israel have the right, when speaking of these existential dangers, to invoke the memory of a third of our nation which was annihilated. It is his duty."




NETANYAHU IS right, of course. Unfortunately for Israel, raising the Holocaust in the context of a discussion about contemporary threats to the Jewish people is the rhetorical equivalent of dropping a nuclear bomb. Just as no one is allowed to use a nuclear bomb, no one is allowed to mention the Holocaust. And that means that there is ultimately no way to speak about the violent hatred that animates our enemies in every aspect of their policy making. From the seemingly anodyne issue of property sales to the existential issue of nuclear weapons programs, the Jew-hatred that lies at the foundation of their actions is out of bounds for discussion.




Actually, the situation is both better and worse than that. Netanyahu's rhetorical boldness in drawing the parallel between Iran and the Nazis is arguably the only reason that the EU and the Obama administration have taken any actions against Iran. No, as their feckless negotiations with the mullahs, their foot-dragging in implementing economic sanctions, and their outspoken opposition to military action against Iran make clear, they do not really mind the prospect of Iran acquiring the ability to wipe out the Jewish state. The only reason they have adopted sanctions at all is because Netanyahu's Holocaust rhetoric made them fear that Israel would attack Iran's nuclear installations if they didn't.




On the other hand, when it comes to their direct dealings with Jew-haters, Westerners not only fail to confront them about their prejudice. They enable it. For instance, at a townhall meeting during her visit to Tunisia last month, Hillary Clinton was asked how US leaders can be trusted when during elections, "most of the candidates from both sides run towards the Zionist lobbies to get their support."




Rather than reject the anti-Jewish premise of the question - that Jews exert inordinate control over US politics or that there is something wrong with candidates expressing support for Israel - Clinton treated the question as legitimate.




She said, "A lot of things are said in political campaigns that should not bear a lot of attention."




Clinton even congratulated her anti-Jewish questioner, saying, "I think it's a fair question because I... sometimes am a little surprised that people around the world pay more attention to what is said in our political campaigns than most Americans."




Similarly, a report on the behind the scenes goings on at last weekend's nuclear negotiations with Iran published by Al-Monitor described the friendly discussion that took place at a dinner Friday night between EU foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton and Iranian chief negotiator Saeed Jalili. According to a European diplomat, the conversation was aimed at breaking the ice. And it included a discussion of "political party funding in the US."




It is hard to imagine that such a discussion involved anything other than a group tongue-clucking session directed against the inordinate impact of "Jewish money" on US electoral politics. That is, it is all but impossible to imagine that the discussion involved anything other than Ashton attempting to build a rapport with her Iranian counterpart based on shared hatred or contempt for Jews.




The fact that the West refuses to consider the policy implications of the most powerful force in Arab and Iranian policy-making and political life does not mean that Israeli policy-makers should necessarily expand their discussion of the topic - although it would probably not hurt for them to do so. What it means is that the general policy debate in the West about the nature of Middle Eastern politics is completely divorced from reality.




Because the Americans and the Europeans refuse to acknowledge the elephant of Jew-hatred in the middle of the room, they cannot be trusted to make reasoned or rational policy decisions. And since they cannot be trusted to act rationally, Israel cannot rely on the Americans or the Europeans as allies or partners when it confronts threats from its Jew-obsessed neighbors.

April 21, 2012 Israel and Iran on the verge of war and Obama buys Iran more time to prepare!


It is my opinion that one of the best sources of information about Israel and what is to happen in the middle east is obtained by watching the 10 minutes daily news updates at www.prophecyinthenews.com.

This video clip makes it obvious that something very critical is about to happen between Israel and Iran.

May God protect Israel from all her enemies.

(As they are relevant to today’s column, I recommend all readers pick up copies of two friends’ books: Alex Grobman’s License To Murder, and Michael Curtis’s Should Israel Exist? Each offers amazing information about the efforts to delegitimize Jews and Israel. Both are also available on Kindle. Highly, highly recommended—Jim)




Stakelbeck on Terror

My friend Erick Stakelbeck, a courageous reporter and TV host ( CBN’s “Stakelbeck on Terror” ) is superb at connecting the dots. He is also fearless, a much-needed trait in today’s harrowing world.

Today he posted an article about the nefarious work of Media Matters, the left-wing watchdog group that targets Christians and Israel. Not surprisingly, Media Matters is close to the White House.

Part of Erick’s research uncovered the following:

“’It is common for news and commentary by the press to present viewpoints that tend to overly promote...a conservative, Christian-influenced ideology,’ the group said in its application for non-profit status with the IRS.”

This is an absurd statement, and a good example of the brazenness of the left to peddle lies. It’s quite obvious to anyone paying even the slightest attention that media don’t “promote” conservative Christian worldview. The opposite is true.

David Brog, executive director of Christians United for Israel, thinks Media Matters’ targeting of Christians is influenced by its (MM) anti-Israel bias.

Erick makes an important point about Media Matters’ former senior foreign policy fellow, M.J. Rosenberg:

“Rosenberg routinely uses the label, ‘Israel Firsters,’ implying that American supporters put the interests of Israel above the United States. It's a charge commonly made by Neo-Nazis and anti-Semitic groups.”

It is interesting to note that Media Matters promotes the same kind of rhetoric as that of the American religious left, particularly those who are calling themselves evangelicals. This is an ongoing story that will get much bigger, as more facts come to light regarding the players and agendas involved.

There is plenty of evidence, for example, that Rick Warren has already aligned himself with a whole host of anti-Israel friends, in his purposeful drive toward pluralism. And he’s been at it a long time. Readers will simply have to figure out if supporting Israel is reason enough to oppose what Warren is about.

In 2008, Warren’s Saddleback Community Church hosted presidential candidates Barack Obama and the Republican ringer, John McCain. Warren of course proposed a balanced set of questions, ranging from the environment to poverty—all softball issues in such a forum.

But the group he selected to help him come up with questions for the candidates was most revealing: Faith in Public Life. Self-described as “a strategy center for the faith community advancing faith in the public square as a powerful force for justice, compassion and the common good,” this multidenominational religious group was founded by, among others, Jim Wallis (Sojourners); and Bob Edgar (former head of the National Council of Churches).

Among the board members and advisers for Faith in Public Life: EElizabeth Letzler, member of the PCUSA’s Mission Responsibility Through Investment committee and the Israel-Palestine Network (i.e., an Israel divestment proponent); Jim Winkler, General Secretary of the United Methodist Church’s General Board of Church and Society—he also sits on the board (with Communist Party USA leader Judith LeBlanc) of the US Campaign to End the Israeli Occupation; and Dr. Nazir Khaja, chairman of Islamic Information Service.

One would have had to have been aware for some time (as I have been) of the anti-Israel views of people like Winkler—a key mover in United Methodist circles—and Wallis, in order to fully understand the implications of Warren working with them.

What we now have, you see, is a man who is perhaps the most identifiable evangelical in the world linking arms with avowed opponents of a sovereign Jewish state to administer its own defense against relentless terrorism.

Fellow “evangelical” Brian McLaren also referenced recently on his blog (/span> http://brianmclaren.net/archives/blog/proisraeli-and-propalestinian.html )) the efforts of Aaron Niequist to be “Pro Israel and Pro Palestinian.” And who is Niequist?

He is the son-in-law of Bill and Lynne Hybels, founders of the monolithic Willow Creek Church outside Chicago. Willow Creek is a huge association of like-minded churches around the country. At 9,000 member churches—b style="mso-bidi-font-weight: normal">spanning 90 denominations——Hybels certainly has the attention of many thousands of evangelical Christians. And he and his wife were mentored by a Palestinian beginning in the 1970’s, so their animus towards Israel is not new.

I’m going to make a bold statement, but one I think that is backed with common sense:

It is not possible that those 9,000 churches do not share Bill and Lynne Hybels’ attitudes about modern Israel.

In August 2011, Lynne Hybels hosted a “Summit Lunch” entitled, “Leading Toward Peace in Israel and Palestine.” The tip-off of course that this was to be a left-wing gathering comes in the now ubiquitous use of the term “Palestine,” as if they are describing a sovereign nation.

The main presenter was Dr. Gary Burge, a Wheaton College professor and author, whose anti-Israel bias goes way back.

It is almost an afterthought to note that Rick Warren and Bill Hybels are chums. They share the same interests and goals.

In other words, what we now have facing us is a global coalition of anti-Zionists, many of them now operating in the open in evangelical camps. This takes me back to the beginning of this column, to point out that groups like Media Matters are no longer really New York-based groups (and thus far removed in every way from middle America); they are ideological bedfellows of the leading Christian speakers and writers today.

Rick Warren’s associations are the same in many respects as groups like Media Matters.

What I’ve written is the tip of the iceberg in the new war on Israel from tthe Religious Left in America. Watchmen like Erick Stakelbeck are heavily out-numbered by the above-mentioned individuals and groups, and more, but I still believe that personal courage and a passionate commitment to truth will win the day.

"Gary Stearman and Islamic Forces Update"

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------



April 26, 2012 Gary Stearman and Islamic Forces Update

It is my contention ever since the beginning of the Arab Spring that the results of these revolutions and upheavals will be the imposition of Islamic radical dictatorship in all these countries and that this would lead to the end time scenario in the prophecies of the Bible. Little known to these people are the strings that are being pulled in the background without their knowledge. These strings are used to place all the Islamic world into a war against Israel.
From this war the manipulators behind the scenes are hoping that Israel will be debilitated or destroyed completely so that they can easily impose a one world government.

In the video by Mr. Stearman he starts with the role of the USA Obama administration in the recognition of the peaceful Muslim Brotherhood that must be supported and recognized. It is the ultimate affront that will be committed against Israel and the descendants of Ishmael that have align themselves against Israel and the God of Israel.

As in many articles before it is my believe that Obama will become the Antichrist of the Apocalypse and it is in this role that he is laying out the groundwork for his complete control of the World.
The prophecies read in the video tell of the complete destruction that will be meted to the forces of Islam at that time.

Israeli leadership display serious disagreement
April 30, 2012


“I have no trust in the current Israeli leadership.”




The former head of the secret police of Israel backstab Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

These are the words of ‪‪Yuval Diskin, the ‬‬Former Shin Bet chief.

He says prime minister, defense minister not fit to stand at helm of Israeli government. ‬‬

Former Shin Bet chief Yuval Diskin on Friday leveled harsh criticism at Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Defense Minister Ehud Barak, saying “I have not trust in the current Israeli leadership.”

Speaking at a conference in central Israel, Diskin said: “I don’t trust a leadership that relies on messianic leadership. Our two messiahs from Caesarea and from the Akirov Towers are not fit to stand at the helm of the government.”

The former Shin bet chief slammed the Netanyahu and Barak over the Iranian nuclear program, saying that they “present the public with a mirage.

“If Israel acts against the Iranian nuclear bomb, the attack will encourage the Iranians to produce a bomb even faster,” he noted

Also former IDF chief Gabi Askenazi display disagreements with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Minister of defense Ehud Barak.


A military strike against Iran is “not needed tomorrow morning” but Israel does need to present a credible military threat alongside sanctions and diplomatic action against the Islamic regime, former IDF chief of staff Lt.-Gen. (res.) Gabi Ashkenazi said on Sunday.

Speaking at The Jerusalem Post conference in New York, Ashkenazi said that the right strategy was too continue the economic crackdown on Iran as well as covert action that takes place “under the radar.”

My comment:

The rice of fascism in Europe give new virtue to the wind of the final antichrist. This movement will be massive and welcomed by people at large. When the man of lawlessness appear, also the Jews will be fooled into the final trap.

Israel was re-birthed by Jesus, as the preparation for the final battle in Zion. Before the true Messiah return, Satan will have his last bid for Jerusalem.

The city of David will be handed over to the false prince of peace. The Jews will be under such heavy pressure, that Zionism will be abandoned. Self hating Jews will start to defame and attack their own Zionist leadership.

Behold: Do not end up with Satan and his forces of evil. Stay put. Jesus the Messiah will come back in the clouds of heaven, replacing sunlight as the Light of the World.


2 Thessalonians 2:2-4
not to become easily unsettled or alarmed by some prophecy, report or letter supposed to have come from us, saying that the day of the Lord has already come. Don’t let anyone deceive you in any way, for that day will not come until the rebellion occurs and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the man doomed to destruction. He will oppose and will exalt himself over everything that is called God or is worshiped, so that he sets himself up in God’s temple, proclaiming himself to be God.

Satan’s final man will be given a red carpet welcome at Ben Gurion Airport in Tel Aviv.

dis·in·for·ma·tion [dis-in-fer-mey-shuhn, dis-in-] noun

false information, as about a country's military strength or plans, publicly announced or planted in the news media, especially of other countries.



Israel Isn’t Clowining Around



If I can say it this way, the Iranian threat is almost becoming comical.

Long-time readers of “Israel Watch” know that I don’t mind saying my worldview is informed by the presupposition that the Bible is true.

Therefore, Iran cannot destroy Israel. A clear theme in Scripture is that the Jewish people will never be destroyed.

That this flies in the face of conventional wisdom is something I can live with, believe me.

But who can we believe in the Iranian-Israel story? Let me propose something shocking:

You can believe Iran, but you can’t believe Israel.

I’m not giving away any state secrets here, mainly because I don’t have any to give away. However, a hunch tells me that when the Iranian leadership says it wants to wipe Israel off the map, I believe them.

When Israel leaks stories of backroom fighting among the political and military leadership…I frankly don’t believe those stories.

The news chatter this week was that there is dissension among the Israeli leadership. We are told that former head of the Shin Bet, Yuval Diskin, is unhappy with the secretive planning going on between Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Defense Minister Ehud Barak. Both men have worked for each other before, stretching back to their days in Sayeret Matkal, the IDF’s elite counter-terrorism unit.

To hear Diskin and others tell it, a strike against Iran’s nuclear facilities would be a horrific mistake. Diskin even made an interesting comment this week about how Netanyahu and Barak make decisions:

"I have no faith in the prime minister, nor in the defense minister," Diskin, who stepped down as head of the Shin Bet a year ago, said in a speech partly broadcast by Israel Radio on Saturday.

"I really don't have faith in a leadership that makes decisions out of messianic feelings."

Clever! In one fell swoop, Diskin switched the truth in this equation. Iran’s mullahs have long been known to view their work as important for bringing back the Twelfth Imam, a messianic figure in Koranic literature.

By contrast, no one who knows them would ever accuse Netanyahu or Barak of having any messianic thoughts. At least that we know of; Barak in particular is rigidly secular.

Yet Diskin’s comments serve to confuse, and this, my friends, is the first tactic in a high-stakes war.

Diskin’s remarks came after Lieutenant-General Benny Gantz—Israel’s chief of general staff—claimed that Iran is “very rational” and unlikely to pursue nuclear weapons because the world opposes it.

American newspapers have reported that these kinds of comments apparently undermine the case for a strike against Iran’s nuclear facilities.

I don’t know whether to laugh or guffaw. Maybe I’ll chuckle vigorously.

I am certain of this: Iran’s nuclear weapons program will be destroyed.

How it’s done, of course, I have no idea. My deepest source within Israel is my usual cab driver, who was a naval commando in the Lebanon War.

Yet common sense and a healthy respect for Scripture (Isaiah 54:17) tell me that Israel will not allow an existential threat to come from Iran.

That spymasters like Diskin publicly rebuke the leadership means nothing. Except that it’s disinformation, pure and simple.

Look, Israel wants Iran to think it will strike. It wants Iran to think it won’t strike. Israel wants Iran to think the fries in Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s Happy Meal will blow up. They want the Iranians to think that clowns at a circus are members of Sayeret Matkal. They want Iran to think that black is red and milk is honey.

It’s called throwing your enemy off-base.

Diskin, when asked what he thought of Netanyahu and Barak, had this say:

"They are not people who I personally, at least, trust to be able to lead Israel into an event on such a scale, and to extricate it."

Let me tell you how I interpret that statement. On the issue of how to handle Iran, I believe that the truth is, Diskin trusts Netanyahu and Barak implicitly. He is part of a disinformation campaign to keep Iran guessing.

As to details of a strike, or whatever it will be, this is my personal feeling: Israel will do something so innovative—so breathtaking—that none of us will have ever seen it coming.

Am I lying?

Who knows?

UFOs, Aliens, Antichrist, Mark of the Beast, and Antisemitism






What do UFOs, Aliens, Antichrist, Mark of the Beast, the Disappearance of Millions of People, and Antisemitism have in common? Channellers around the world are receiving messages from alien beings that millions of people will disappear in the twinkling of an eye. Those that are left on the earth will have the opportunity to continue their evolution. The ancient Scriptures predicted this very scenario and we learn that a leader, whom the ancient texts refer to as the beast, man of perdition, antichrist, will come and will be a genetic hybrid of human and demon. He will deceive the world and will attempt to destroy the Jewish people.

Is It the End of the World?

In his riveting profile of Don Isaac Abravanel, acclaimed historian Benzion Netanyahu wrote about an encounter the Middle Ages statesman and philosopher had with Spain’s Queen Isabella, on the eve of the expulsion of the Jews from that country. Netanyahu wrote:

“If Isabella thought that, by measures like expulsion, the Jews could be brought to surrender or extinction, she was greatly mistaken. He pointed out to her the eternity of the Jewish people, that they had outlived all who had attempted to destroy them, that it was beyond human capacity to destroy the Jewish people, and that those who tried to do so only invited upon themselves divine punishment and disaster.”

My goodness, Abravanel “got it.” And Benzion Netanyahu got it.

When I learned early this morning that he died hours before, at his home in Jerusalem, I knew some rarified air had gone out of our world. Benzion, you see, was much like Abravanel and, may I say, Moses, who confronted Pharaoh by telling him that disaster awaited him for his persecution of the people God Himself has etched into his hands.

The elder Netanyahu, who would live to see three sons distinguish themselves in the Jewish state he helped create, taught for a time at Cornell. Yet he lived long and died in Jerusalem, the Holy City of his forefathers. What an other-worldly legacy he leaves!

Known far and wide for his embrace of “Revisionist Zionism,” which to much of the world means “right-wing” Zionism, Benzion had come to Palestine as a 10-year-old, in 1920. His singular life flourished in the place that would become the modern Jewish state.

After his eldest son, Yonatan, was killed commanding the assault force at Entebbe in July, 1976, Benzion and his beloved Cela moved home. When I read Entebbe: The Jonathan Netanyahu Story, written by the youngest brother, Iddo (it remains the best book I’ve ever read), I could see much of the old man in the son(s).

In the book, Iddo recounts the moments before planeloads of Israeli counter-terrorist commandos landed at the African airport. The night-time raid caught PLO terrorists and their Ugandan hosts flat-footed, and the ensuing firefight was over in minutes and the 100+ hostages were loaded onto the planes and flown home to freedom.

As the lead pilot guided his plane through the night, Lt. Col. Yonatan Netanyahu (“Yoni” made his way to the cockpit.

“If he’s there, I’m going to kill him,” he said matter-of-factly.

“Who?” asked the pilot.

“Idi Amin,” Yoni answered.

The astonished pilot argued that they didn’t have authorization to kill Amin, who was in the middle of a reign of terror as the strongman of the African nation.

Yoni replied that it didn’t matter, that killing Amin would save countless lives, since the fiendish dictator was known for throwing innocents off buildings, or feeding them to crocodiles. In Yoni’s world—a world shaped by a father of uncompromising principles—offing the Butcher of Uganda was the humanitarian thing to do.

I agree.

That Amin missed the party didn’t detract from the spectacular success of the mission. The lone loss, however, was unrecoverable: Yoni Netanyahu was killed while directing the initial assault. His death would alter the family forever.

In his foreword to The Letters of Jonathan Netanyahu, compiled by the fallen commander’s brothers, the novelist Herman Wouk likened Yoni to “an ember of sacred fire,” a person of such unusual abilities and outsized life that the rest of us can only marvel.

Wouk was right, of course. Such a man could only have come into being by sitting at the feet of greatness. Benzion instilled in his sons a love of their own people.

I am often struck by the vapidness of their ideological enemies (oddly enough, a growing number of them in leadership positions in my own American evangelical community). These are people who have been overtaken by the rhetoric of the left and denounce perhaps the most moral initiative in all of human history, Zionism. Interestingly, in a piece on Benzion from the Israeli newspaper Ha’aretz, he was quoted as saying that the left posed an existential threat to Israel and the Jewish people.

This is a very profound statement, and one we would do well to read three or four times.

It isn’t simply that the left is an annoyance, or even an opponent. It is that the pacifist, defeatist—I will also call them immoral—policies of the left endanger all of us.

I think of how the Religious Left in America so loathes people like Benzion Netanyahu. They express displeasure at people who kill enemies in battle. They decry war, as if this last-ditch option is not moral.

It is very moral. And men like Benzion Netanyahu and his sons (each served in the same elite counter-terrorism unit that went to Entebbe) keep the rest of us safe from unhinged, malevolent murderers, many of whom list jihad as their occupation.

Those were the kinds of people the Netanyahu family fought all their lives. How many of us who are old enough to remember felt safer when boarding a plane after Entebbe? How many of us stop to realize what an impenetrable fortress/outpost the Israel Defense Forces brings to the Middle East, thus creating at least a semblance of stability in a region that would be far more dangerous for America, were the Israelis not there?

No, the Religious Left can continue chattering about alleged brutality perpetrated by the Israelis, and call Zionists a bigger threat to peace than Hamas. They are bearing false witness when they do, and History will vindicate the Jews. Men like Brian McLaren and his friends…are not fit to lace the boots of the men and women who make up the IDF.

I have seen the graves in Jerusalem of the 22 young IDF men who died in Jenin in 2002, during an operation to stem the tide of bloody terrorism, unleashed on innocents—the terror campaigns of Hamas. The Israelis sent those men house-to-house to find terror operatives, rather than bomb the city from the air and kill innocents.

Did the Israelis “receive credit” for that? Does the Religious Left think about the 22?

No.

The IDF is the most ethical army in the world, fighting an existential threat every second of every day. Benzion Netanyahu was well aware of this fight.

He was a personal friend. I well remember visiting him for the first time. Evening had fallen and I wondered if I’d come to the right house. Then I saw the side steps, the same steps I’d seen his boys play on in grainy documentary footage. He came to the door and his eyes twinkled.

That first visit was sublime. We sat in the family dining room, where so many profound conversations had taken place in the previous half-century. In the corner was a bust of his fallen son, Yoni. We discussed culture, politics, history. He told me how much the Russians had hated the Jews. How much Europe had hated the Jews. How much the Arabs hated the Jews.

And there we were, enjoying a delightful evening in the Jewish homeland, which still serves as a finger in the eye of Pharaoh, Queen Isabella, and Idi Amin.

The Jewish people are indestructible, more than the stuff of legend. For they are living, breathing, singing, dancing this night—in the City of David.

Goodnight, Benzion.

None of it was in vain.

Where We Are



I had the pleasure of speaking to a group of Bible-believers this weekend, not in a church, but in a community center. Small in number, we had a great time. I leave it to church-growth hobbyists to obsess over numbers. My experience the past two days reinforces my view that the Church is doing just fine.

It’s just not very large.


(This all relates to Israel, by the way, as I’ll attempt to demonstrate.)


One of the things I shared with the group this week was the bomb that Andy Stanley dropped recently at his church in Atlanta. I won’t go into detail here, but you can read the entire saga at:


http://apprising.org/2012/05/05/homosexuality-megachurches-and-andy-stanley/



Andy Stanley has now legitimized the homosexual lifestyle for the evangelical world. Is it a coincidence that both the vice president and the president recently officially gave their approval of what they call “same-sex marriage”? I do not believe it is. For some time, Obama has been courting those who call themselves evangelicals, who are in fact with him much of the time regarding worldview. This is key.


Very public pronouncements on this subject, from cultural and political leaders, has been orchestrated.


Because all these guys move in the same circles—Stanley, Scot McKnight, Erwin McManus and younger leaders like Cameron Strang hob-nob with Obama—one can safely assume they have similar views on large issues; I am friendly with discernment and apologetics ministries, and it follows that we have the same worldview.


It’s obvious that one gravitates toward the community with whom one shares common interests.


Because Andy Stanley is considered an authoritative figure (and I urge you to read the above link and digest the implications), his public stances will be embraced by millions. Here’s how:


Just one segment of Stanley’s mega-church empire is his association with Bill Hybels of Willow Creek. There are now 9,000 churches in the Willow Creek Association. Stanley appears routinely at Hybels’ “leadership” conferences. Since Hybels and wife, Lynne, are pro-Palestinian, it is not hard to speculate that Stanley—if the subject were to come up—would not exactly see the Israeli point of view.


As I’ve written before, the director of the anti-Israel documentary, “Little Town of Bethlehem,” Jim Hanon, attends Craig Groeschel’s LifeChurch in Edmond, Oklahoma. This is one of the largest and fastest-growing churches in America, and while Groeschel is probably too smart to comment publicly on an issue like the Arab-Israeli conflict, it seems reasonable to assume that since his friends like Hanon, Bill Hybels, etc., have the same view, he would, as well.

They are impacting millions of young people in America, right now.

It is a given that the Emergent community (a label they gave themselves, by the way) has a deep dislike of dispensationalism and Christian Zionism. Witness Todd Deatherage’s comment at a Catalyst conference:

“Eschatology matters, in so many areas of life. What we think about the end helps shape how we live and act today. So if we believe that violence and war and bloodshed in the Middle East has been predetermined—if necessary, maybe even a good thing—then how responsive are we to Jesus’ call that we be peacemakers? How authentically Christian is any theology that makes us more perpetuators of conflict than agents of reconciliation?”

In the same statement, he also said that the “Israeli-Palestinian” conflict seems “blind at times.”

He means, of course, that, for example, Christian Zionists are “blind.”

Let me break-down the above comments:

•When Deatherage says that eschatology matters, what he means from his point of view is that one’s view of the last days’ theology will either compel one to work for the betterment of man, or it will lead to what Brian McLaren calls an “eschatology of abandonment.” In other words, us Rapture-nuts figure that since the planet is on a collision-course anyway…why work for peace and for good? Emergents, of course, stand in stark contrast to this “Armageddon mentality,” and are harmonious, loving folk.

•Notice his subtle inference that war and bloodshed might be “a good thing,” again, in the worldview of a pro Israel/Bible prophecy Christian. This is bearing false witness, my friends, and is a very dark charge to lay at our feet—and it comes without evidence! To say that we enjoy war and bloodshed…wow, that from a self-professing Christian brother.

•Deatherage also charges that our version of Christianity is not authentic, because of alleged rejection of peacemaking, etc. He has blundered into dangerous rhetoric, yet will not be held accountable.

As I’ve said many times, all (meaning, all) Bible prophecy teachers I’ve known, along with Christian Zionist leaders, have never practiced an “eschatology of abandonment.” Many engage in all sorts of relief activity and activism for the less fortunate. Men like David Lewis were pioneers in bringing Israelis and Palestinians together for dialogue. David used to tell me that the peace treaty with Egypt was “very good,” because it saved lives.

Todd Deatherage, you are bearing false witness against your fellow Christians by making statements like the above, at Catalyst.

The Catalyst audiences are made up of the next-generation evangelical leaders in this country.

Where Israel is concerned, that is very bad.

As we move through time, and as I study and investigate the statements and agendas of what I will now call the Religious Left (theological and social liberals who have hijacked the term “evangelical,” in order to burrow-into conservative churches), I will say clearly that a war has been declared on Christian Zionists and Bible prophecy students and teachers; the latter two groups of course are really one, generally.

What this means for you is that you are going to have to think-through your level of commitment. I am certain that we have seen the tip of the iceberg in what I will call the coming persecution in this country of Christian Zionists.

If you stand for Israel and for Bible prophecy, you will increasingly lose friends and even family. Prepare yourself mentally and spiritually for that, because it is coming. In some cases, you will be shocked and dismayed; in other situations, the end of a relationship will seem anticlimactic.

I mention Andy Stanley in this column specifically because, though my main point is not to discuss homosexuality per se, his recent message at NorthPoint Church is instructive because one strategy of the homosexual lobby is very similar to that of Christian Palestinianists: put a human face on the issue.


Because Stanley has now given the homosexual lifestyle credibility among evangelicals (it is already rapidly being embraced by the youngest generations, raised on a steady diet of television—see Ellen DeGeneres—and multi-cultural education), the dominoes will now begin to fall. Very near the top of the agenda of the Religious Left is undermining/destroying support for Israel among evangelicals.


This is why, because many of your friends and family are now bending on the large social issues that have long divided the country, they will also abandon you at some point regarding support for Israel.


But, unlike the Emergents/Seeker-Driven/Church-Growth crowd, it’s never been about the numbers. See: Army, Gideon’s.


That’s why, when the dust settles, you will be left with genuine relationships.


Quality over quantity, my friends.

Sara Reynolds (14 May 2012)
"April 14th, 1912, May 14th, 1948 and Israel's 64th Birthday"

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------


April 14th is one month before May 14th. On April 14, 1912, the Titanic sank in the Atlantic Ocean. At exactly 36 years and 1 month later, Israel was reborn. That's 433 months from the sinking of the Titanic. Israel celebrated 19 years as a nation after 228 months. That's 661 months from the sinking of Titanic. 23 days later, on June 7th, 1967, Israel reclaimed Jerusalem as its Capital. Israel will be 64 years old this Monday. 23,376 days have passed. Multipy by 1440 = 33,661,440. 33 is half of 66 and there are 1440 minutes in a day.

Happy Birthday Israel.

Evangelicals Who Have a Problem with Israel

In his 2004 look at our nation’s 39th president, The Real Jimmy Carter, Steven Hayward really got down to brass tacks. I highly recommend this book to anyone who is puzzled by the Man from Plains.

Specifically with regard to Israel, Carter was and is a menace. Although there are two sides to the argument, Carter’s arm-twisting-breaking-tearing off finally compelled the Israelis to give up the Sinai, to sworn enemy Egypt. The Israelis forfeited gas and oil fields, and other infrastructure built up since the Six Day War, and Egypt benefitted from all this beginning in 1981.

The severe downside to the deal, however, is that it set a precedent for Israeli withdrawals. Surely Menachem Begin regretted this to the end of his life. Ever since, the Israelis have been conceding territory, and it is patently obvious that the world body demands more and more, while hating the Jewish state more and more! A most curious condition.

Hayward offers quite a few compelling observations of Carter, a one-time (and long-time) Southern Baptist, famous for teaching Sunday school in his hometown of Plains, Georgia.

Writing about Carter’s religious belief system, Hayward stated:

“He is sincere about his beliefs, and is an authentic representative of a segment of Christianity that modern liberalism has corrupted and politicized. Douglas Brinkley regards Carter as ‘the most principled American president since Harry Truman.’ The core of the problem with Carter is that his principles are wrong.”

It’s that kind of clear thinking and writing that serves the rest of us well, as we try and figure out who is right and who is wrong in this messed-up world. Hayward’s observation about Carter is dead-on.

At a “peace conference” in Geneva, in 2003, Carter let slip a very revealing comment:

“Had I been elected to a second term, with the prestige and authority and influence and reputation I had in the region, we could have moved to a final solution.”

As Hayward then noted, “Strange that such a politician of such prestige, authority, and influence would use that particular phrase.”

The “Final Solution,” of course, is the chilling phrase coined by the Nazis in 1943, in their satanic drive to kill all the Jews. It is indeed a telling phrase by Carter, who is not ignorant, and especially not ignorant of history.

And let me hack through Carter’s narcissism with a machete and parse his ode to himself.

Prestige. Authority. Influence. Reputation.

These are the words of a man in love with himself. I would argue that he certainly had/has a reputation in the Middle East. The rest are iffy. The Israelis basically don’t want him in the country even as a visitor, and I’m quite sure the Arabs can hardly believe their good fortune to have befriended such a high-level dupe.

One wonders where Carter went off the rails regarding Israel. His religious background was not in the mainline. This was a man raised in the Bible Belt South. Yet somewhere along the line, he began to dislike Jews.

Let me attempt to explain the linkage between Carter’s worldview and that espoused by today’s Emergent crowd. Again, Hayward’s book is invaluable.

“’A quotation from [German theologian Paul] Tillich sticks in my mind,’ Carter wrote and said on many occasions. ‘Religion is the search for the truth about man’s existence, and relationship with God.’ Maybe our search will be fruitful.’ The emphasis is in the original. A hallmark of modern liberal theology is that the search for truth is more important than the truth itself.”

This is exactly what Emergents believe and teach.

Jimmy Carter is not an anomaly in our world today, especially in the evangelical world.

Also worth noting, Hayward wrote that: “In his peanut warehouse office, Carter kept a small statue of Gandhi. Notably missing from his repertoire of religious references are conservative theologians or thinkers present or past, such as C.S. Lewis, Francis Schaeffer, Charles Spurgeon, or Jonathan Edwards. These loud signals went unnoticed by the millions of conservative evangelical Christians who thought Carter was ‘one of us’ in the 1976 campaign.”

You see, just because it walks and quacks like a traditional evangelical doesn’t mean it is an evangelical.

It might be a left-handed Texan (see MacArthur, John, below).

That’s why I urge pro Israel Christians and Bible prophecy students to pay careful attention to organizations like www.catalystspace.com. There are those who call themselves evangelicals who know they are not.

Increasingly, I am writing about Israel’s enemies within the Church. I could write of course about recent goings-on in Israel, but others do that well. I believe that presently, “Israel Watch” is serving a purpose by calling attention to the malevolent rumblings coming from within evangelicalism.

John MacArthur (who has perhaps made some efforts to distance himself from newer forms of dispensationalism) has offered a tremendous rebuttal to Replacement “Theologians,” who like to mask their Jew-hatred behind a veneer of scholarship:

“Listen folks, once you're not literal, then who's to say? Right? I mean, then why not just say, ‘Well, Israel really means 'left-handed Texans'--if it's not exegetical--if it's not in the text, it could mean 'Canadians' How can you say, if you can't say what's literally there?”

Left-handed Texans. That’s awesome.

He’s right, of course. The word-games played by Emergents and outright liberals are confusing people, big-time.

Chris Rosebrough of Pirate Radio, posted on his Facebook page this week the following stunning conversation:

“A few weeks ago I had a high school freshman girl explain to me how language is a cultural creation and that as a result there are no eternal truths but only truths that are determined by society. I asked her where she learned this and she told me ‘I don't remember. But, I think I learned this in school and by watching television.’”

Folks, this is mind-boggling. Should we stop communicating altogether? Quit talking? Quit writing? What would be acceptable to people like this?

It is an indication, though, how far apart we are from those who don’t believe the Bible.

You can hold up a Bible today and proclaim that it is God’s Word, but today’s unbeliever will scream back that that’s our opinion. Words have no meaning for them today, and that is why anyone can interpret Scripture to fit his own agendas.

You see, this “postmodern” culture bases decisions on feelings. Not words. Not authority.

Feelings.

Experiences.

This is why the so-called “Palestinian narrative” has gained so much traction today with young people. No longer can we point to Scripture as the basis for declaring Israel’s right to her ancestral land.

Now the counter argument will be based on the feelings of someone who simply doesn’t like Jews in the West Bank. This is how Lynne Hybels (www.lynnehybels.com) promotes the Palestinian narrative.

You must understand that one basing a worldview on subjective feelings will always be at enmity with Scripture as the final and only authority. It is war, unrelenting.

“Language is a cultural creation.” Wow. If you have wondered why the Church has become unrecognizable, start there. Emergent proponents/pied pipers in particular are good at using this tactic, claiming that it is the “conversation” that’s important, not ending up at a final answer.

Jimmy Carter simply believes that the Old Testament promises to the Jews are no longer valid. That’s why he could cobble together an illogical and dangerous strategy for Middle East “peace.”

Now we have whole generations of young people who do not believe in Zionism. They do not because they have a wholly different view of the Bible.

That is the product of a generation of topical sermons, church-growth obsession, seeker-driven models, celebrity focused “Bible studies,” and more.

It is also, as Hayward said of Jimmy Carter’s principles, wrong.

Jesus chose Israel and the Jewish people
May 28, 2012


The Messiah chose the Jews. They are His people, even those who refuse to accept His selection. He will judge them.




The Jews are the subject of Jesus the Messiah, either they like it or not.

The whole idea of Replacement theology is that God of the Bible is a complete failure. He chose the Jews as His chosen people, but has been so powerless that He have lost them all.

An angry God, has chosen to abandon His people, will be the logical conclusion of such false theology.

Because no one can doubt that God did select the Jews, and promised to be their God forever.

When did “god” give up?

Here are some words that proves the selection:


Exodus 19:6
you will be for me a kingdom of priests and a holy nation.’ These are the words you are to speak to the Israelites.”

Deuteronomy 7:6

For you are a people holy to the Lord your God. The Lord your God has chosen you out of all the peoples on the face of the earth to be his people, his treasured possession.

The Jews were not chosen because they were strong, mighty, or righteous. Nor were they powerful.


Deuteronomy 7:7-9

The Lord did not set his affection on you and choose you because you were more numerous than other peoples, for you were the fewest of all peoples.

But it was because the Lord loved you and kept the oath he swore to your forefathers that he brought you out with a mighty hand and redeemed you from the land of slavery, from the power of Pharaoh king of Egypt.

Know therefore that the Lord your God is God; he is the faithful God, keeping his covenant of love to a thousand generations of those who love him and keep his commands.

The question will arise:

Did God end His relationship with the Jews, because the majority of them failed to accept Jesus as the Messiah?

Let me use the words of Paul the Apostle to answer this question:


Romans 9:27-28

Isaiah cries out concerning Israel:


“Though the number of the Israelites be like the sand by the sea, only the remnant will be saved. 
For the Lord will carry out
 his sentence on earth with speed and finality.

Are you one of the men of Israel who fear God?

Are you one of the remnant that will be saved, when the Lords sentence will come to Earth with speed?


Romans 1:1-2
I ask then: Did God reject his people? By no means! I am an Israelite myself, a descendant of Abraham, from the tribe of Benjamin. God did not reject his people, whom he foreknew.

If God of the Bible did reject His people based on their rejection of Jesus during the crucifixion in Jerusalem, how could Paul him self be saved?

Paul was not a student of Jesus, but came to faith after Jesus had returned to His throne in Heaven. Paul was saved by a mighty move of the Holy Spirit, sent back to Earth as the Fathers replacement of His Son.

How come the first century Church in Jerusalem, were a gathering of Jews only?

Why would Jesus restore Israel in 1948, If He has rejected the Jewish people?

The good news is that Jesus loved and still loves the Jewish people. He Him self was a Jew, when He walked on the Earth in flesh. He died for the sins of both Jews and gentiles, when He shed his blood on the cross in Jerusalem, for the forgiveness of all sins.

But:

If you want Yeshua (Jesus) to save you, you have to be willing to surrender your life on Earth to Him. The Bible says that without faith, it is not possible to please God.

It’s the Holy City, Stupid



There is a key element of reality in our world today that most entire countries simply don’t get. They don’t get it because they have bought into the propaganda that the Bible is not credible.

Too bad for them.

Whenever someone asks me, “What is the one sign we are living in the last days?” I always answer one word: “Israel.”

It’s obvious. And the obviousness of the painfully obvious is lost on a clueless world.

I don’t think people who ask me this question are stupid; I do think the global community as a whole is stupid for blatantly rejecting the specialness of Israel and the Jewish people.

We have more clues this week that Bible prophecy is true, and the broad lines of the time of the end can be seen.

HonestReporting posted an article exposing the bias of The Guardian, the British paper that printed a “correction,” alleging that Israel’s capital is Tel Aviv, rather than Jerusalem.

(We must understand, “Israel Watch” readers, that appealing to the Bible holds little weight in today’s culture. In what is called a “postmodern culture,” the Bible is derided as an outdated myth.)

The paper’s own style guide says: “Jerusalem is not the capital of Israel; Tel Aviv is.”

This isn’t a surprise, since the British long ago ceased to be a Bible-believing people. It follows that the British media would concede the Jerusalem issue to the Muslims.

HonestReporting submitted a formal complaint, and it is instructive to note the response:

“Irrespective of whether the international community recognizes Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, it is simply inaccurate to unilaterally confer capital city status on Tel Aviv. Believing The Guardian to be in clear breach of the UK Press Complaints Commission clause on accuracy, HonestReporting submitted an official complaint.

“Ironically received on Jerusalem Day, this was the outrageous PCC ruling:

“The terms of Clause 1 (i) of the Code make clear that newspapers “must take care not to publish inaccurate, misleading or distorted information”, and the terms of Clause 1 (ii) state that “a significant inaccuracy, misleading statement or distortion once recognised must be corrected promptly and with due prominence.

“In this instance, the Commission noted that the correction published had been a clarification of the newspaper’s earlier claim that Jerusalem was the Israeli capital. The Commission was mindful that while it is correct to say that Israel classes Jerusalem as her capital city, this is not recognised by many countries and those nations enjoying diplomatic relations with Israel have their embassies in Tel Aviv. As such, the Commission was of the view that the newspaper was entitled to refer to Tel Aviv as the capital of Israel. There was no breach of the Code in this instance.”

So, the world continues to bare its fangs to Israel regarding the status of Jerusalem. Sadly, that isn’t the only troubling development, and the one that follows hits even closer to home.

We have just learned that the Obama administration is releasing $192 million in aid to the Palestinian Authority/PLO. Congress had frozen the financial package when Mahmoud Abbas (the Holocaust denier) threatened to unilaterally declare statehood. This after the administration also tried to restore funding to a cultural agency with the UN that recognizes the “State of Palestine.”

(Sounds like much of America’s evangelical leadership, by the way.)

A White House spokesman said that “The P.A. has recognized Israel’s right to exist, renounced violence, and accepted previous agreements, including the Roadmap”—all direct lies. The PA/PLO has done no such thing and continues to agitate for the destruction of Israel.

Itamar Marcus, director of Palestinian Media Watch, told a group of congressional staffers last week just how the cow ate the cabbage:

“This is totally, totally false information. Someone has to get the proper information to the White House” because it is “releasing $192 million based on false information.”

Marcus gave a detailed presentation on how the PA infuses its youth with hatred for the Jewish state.

For many years now, ever since the diabolical Oslo Accords, we have been hearing how compliant the Palestinians are. Not so.

In early May, a broadcast of a Palestinian children’s TV show celebrated a child saying, “Our enemy, Zion, is Satan with a tail.”

Interestingly, the child then goes on to describe taking Israeli land. How fascinating that the left decries alleged theft of Arab land, but never mentions Arab incitement.

There was much more to this report from Marcus, and I encourage you to check out www.palwatch.org.

The thing is, while congressional staffers appeared to be shocked by such revelations, the administration knows full well what the Palestinians are up to—and they don’t care.

Palestinian children are being prepared for a literal assault on the city of Jerusalem, since it is Israel’s capital.

What is described in Zechariah? A global attack on Jerusalem. The two news items mentioned above are yet more bricks in the wall of that story, which is rapidly advancing.

Turkey tries to persecute the Israeli Navy command
May 29, 2012


Turkish judges approve demand for a sentence of a combined 18.000 years for former IDF chief of staff and others.



Forme IDF top commander Gabi Ashkenazi defended Israel against a terrorist attack launched from Turkish soil. Here with defense minister Ehud Barak.

A Turkish court on Monday formally pressed charges against members of Israel’s military for the killing of nine people aboard a Turkish ship trying to break Israel’s blockade of Gaza in 2010, Turkey’s state-run news agency said.

The court in Istanbul voted unanimously to approve an indictment against Israel’s former military chief Lt. Gen. Gabi Ashkenazi, along with the former heads of its navy, air force intelligence, and military intelligence, Eliezer Marom, Amos Yadlin, and Avishai Levi, the Anadolu Agency said. They face nine consecutive life terms in prison for “inciting to kill monstrously, and by torturing,” the agency added.

It is unlikely Israeli military members will be brought before Turkey’s judicial system, since Israel does not regard them as criminals. If they are convicted in absentia at the end of the trial process, which could take months if not years, the Turkish court could issue an order for their arrest, but such a move would be symbolic and not binding.

Source: Israeli Daily Haaretz.

My comment:

To give you the correct parallel.

Think if Israel decided to break the Turkish navel control of Northern Cypress. And after ignoring the Turkish navy’s warning, the Israeli ship would have continued towards the shore.

And the Israeli ship was full of Jews singing old Nazis songs, of how they were going to cripple and kill all Turks.

Do you read me?

And when the Turkish navy officers entered the Israeli ship, The naval commando’s had been attacked by Jews using knifes and rods?

This kind of scenario is so laughable, that is does not even fit into a movie.

But for the Islamic republic of Turkey, this ****able Jihadist attitude is inside the head of the Prime Minister and President. They have no shame. Not even for a single second.

Not only did Turkey attack the Israeli naval blockade of terrorist controlled Gaza. Now Ankara even sue the Israeli commanders who upheld the sovereignty of the state of Israel.

That a NATO member can be indulged in piracy at high seas is a complete disgrace for all educated and civilized human beings who lives within nations of this alliance.

When God of the Bible finally decides to intervene, There will be pain and agony for eternity for people who support the new Jihad’ist Ottoman Empire.

Swedish author threatens Israel with massive assault from the sea
May 29, 2012


In a year’s time there is a plan to return. And then there could be hundreds of boats. And what will the Israelis do then? Release a nuclear bomb to stop us?



This is the threat on Israel, given by the Swedish author Henning Mankell. The International recognized writer was on board the Islamic armada that tries to break into Israeli controlled sea waters off the cost of Gaza.

The bestselling Swedish crime writer on Saturday accused Israel of murder, piracy and kidnapping after describing how the «aid ship» he was travelling on was seized by Israeli forces this week. In regards to the IDF commandos that was ordered to board the ships, and stop them Mankell told the British press: «I think they went out to murder»

«And it was the most stupid thing they could have done, because look around, Israel has never been so criticised in the world as of today, and if you ask me, this blockade will be over within the next six months»

Source: The UK Newspaper, The Guardian.

My comment:


Peace activites and Islamic terrorists at war with Israel. A Strange alliance.

The Israeli naval control of the sea of Israel and Gaza do not stop aid form getting through to the people of Gaza

Every week, more than 15.000 tons of aid is received into sea ports of Israel like Ashdod and Haifa. There the aid is going to customs, reloaded on trucks and transported into the Gaza strip.

What is wrong with this?

Why cant Hamas receive this kind of aid directly into Gaza?

The answer is in the pudding. If there is no border control into Gaza, than the Islamic terrorist organization can receive whatever given to them.

The Islamic Republic of Iran would surely like to send them more than just home made cakes.

What is Israel suppose to do whit this? Just accept Iranian «aid» to Hamas?

Would the US give us its border control to people who wants to establish a Islamic regime in Washington?

To end the misery for the people of Gaza, you have to bring and end to the regime of Hamas. Attacking Israel with an armada of ships would be the most insane thing you every could do. This will be the final war on the Jewish people.

Brussels to take control of struggling European banks
May 29, 2012


Struggling European banks could be seized and controlled by Brussels as part of secret plans being drawn up, it has emerged.



The EU-elite in Europe, that works for the last and final Fascist regime to come. On top will sit the final antichrist.

Politicians hope the proposals, which would be funded by a new tax on banks, will stem the rapid escalation in the debt crisis witnessed in recent weeks.

The plan is being formulated alongside Italian Prime Minister Mario Monti’s desire for a guarantee on bank deposits.

The annual levy would be placed into a “deposit guarantee scheme”, with the fund – backed by the EU, ECB or European Stability Mechanism – also having the power to take over struggling banks.

Source: Telegraph.co.uk

My comment:

Just like in the run up to World War II, media in London was a spoil spot to the European “peace party”.

Just like before the out break of war, we need to read the London papers to get the truth about what goes on in Europe.

Many branded Hitler as a man that could unite Europe, and should be given enough assets to proclaim his dreams and visions.

Berlin was going to be the center of the new European state. The nations who already had entered into the union formed by Nazi-Germany, hailed their new political leader.

Just a copy of what takes place today.

The UK media can now see that the mistakes are repeated. The Fascist style federal movement is back. This time without brown shirts and the swatsika, but rather backed by Investment bankers crowned with a blue flag full of stars.

1. London has refused to accept the replacement of Commonwealth laws with the new European constitution.

2. The United Kingdom refused to become a part of Schengen, and remove its borders.

3. United Kingdom has refused to replace Pound Sterling with the Euro.

Like in 1940, The United Kingdom seems to be the only nation in Western Europe who lift up freedom and liberty. The will of the people rule, still not replaced by the will of a small elite. The betrayal in London has not yet been completed.

The rest of Europe have already bought the lies, and let the elite destroy their own nations, and removed their own democratic powers, and handed it back to Berlin. Brussels is only a puppet of Berlin, just as it was from 1940 to 1945.

Hitler failed in his plan to build a Federal Europe, the One World Government who were supposed to control of the One World religion.

The qualities and ideology of the final antichrist was foretold by the prophet Daniel:


Daniel 11:37-39
He will show no regard for the gods of his fathers or for the one desired by women, nor will he regard any god, but will exalt himself above them all.Instead of them, he will honor a god of fortresses; a god unknown to his fathers he will honor with gold and silver, with precious stones and costly gifts. He will attack the mightiest fortresses with the help of a foreign god and will greatly honor those who acknowledge him. He will make them rulers over many people and will distribute the land at a price.

Today’s elite will be able to accomplish Hitlers visions and dreams. Only the names and symbols have changed.

Iran has enough uranium for five nukes
May 30, 2012


The Islamic republic of Iran is buying time “negotiating” an possible end to its nuclear bomb program.




The men on the podium behind this missile can hardly wait for their first bomb being ready to be used for “allah”.

Iran has significantly stepped up its output of low-enriched uranium and total production in the last five years would be enough for at least five nuclear weapons if refined much further.

This is a warning issued by the Institute for Science and International Security (ISIS).

The ISIS-warning is based on data in the latest report by the UN International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) which was issued on Friday.

Iran has produced almost 6.2 tons of uranium enriched to a level of 3.5 per cent since it began the work in 2007 – some of which has subsequently been further processed into higher-grade material.

This is nearly 750 kg. more than the IAEA reported in February. ISIS said Iran’s monthly production had risen by roughly a third.

Source: Reuters

My comment:

People who believe liars are fools. The present Iranian regime is based on lies.

The leaders claim that they are not building a nuclear bomb. If that was true, Iran should hand over all the enriched Uranium.

Will they do that?

Off course not. Iran is hell bent on destroying Israel. Without a nuclear bomb, that would not be possible.

How do we know? Just listen to the Iranian President on this short video:


Now Iran have enough enriched Uranium for five bombs. One for Tel Aviv, one for London, one for Berlin, one for Paris and one for Washington.

President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad believes he is called to destroy bout the little Satan and the greater Satan. The smaller one is Israel, and the big one is the chair where you are sitting.

By destroying you in the name of Muhammad and “allah”, men like Ahmadinejad believe the hidden 12th Imam will return to Earth, and save all the Muslims.

Funny that you do not react to the treat against Israel. Only when you own house if on fire, you might scream in pain and agony. On that day, no one will be willing to listen to you.

Because you were lukewarm when the Jews needed you help, you put a curse down on your own head.


Matthew 7:13
[ The Narrow and Wide Gates ] “Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it.

Feel free to do something with this today. Cry out to Jesus to forgive you for betraying His chosen people. Ask Him to have mercy on your soul, and save you. Amen.

Iran to copy Operation Starfish to knock out the USA
May 30, 2012


One single Iranian nuclear explosion 400 kilometers above Lexington in Kentucky will be able to lock down the American nation.



The night sky over Honolulu was put on fire on July 9th in 1962.

Not many people remember Operation Starfish, that was triggered on July 9th, 1962.

What was this military operation all about?

The USA sent a rocket into space with a nuclear warhead 80 times more powerful that the Hiroshima bomb. The doomsday tool was detonated 400 kilometers above Earth, 1445 kilometers west of Hawaii.



The electromagnetic lights of this nuclear explosion west of Hawaii could be seen even in New Zealand. This picture is taken in Honolulu.

The effect of the detonation deep into space shocked the American generals. The effects could be measured as fare as New Zealand.

In Hawaii street lights went off, and electronic devises stopped functioning.

What the US had done, was to put the electro magnetic field over the Pacific Ocean on fire.

The long term effects of the electromagnetic fireball in space, became more devastating than the total destruction such a bomb could have created on a relatively small area of the ground.

In the split of a second, three US Satellites in low obit were disabled. TV sets on Hawaii and the Pacific ocean went into black, and telecommunication went dead.



This picture is taken from an American Military aircraft 3 minutes after the detonation.

Seven satellites failed over the months following the test as radiation damaged their solar arrays or electronics.

These man-made radiation belts eventually crippled one-third of all satellites in low Earth orbit.

The very Van Allan belt was disrupted, and took time to come back into balance.

Since 1962, cancer on Earth has developed into the greatest pandemic ever.

You can read more about this from multiple sources on the net.

Where does this leave the Islamic Republic of Iran, who is hell bent on destroying both Israel and America for the sake of “Allah”.

They just have to try to copy this explosion in deep space over central America.

Today, America would be completely blinded if a powerful electromagnetic pules had knocked out electronic devises. Because unlike 1962, today’s society in completely interconnected. America as we know today would not only stop functioning. It will most likely never be able to recover. The perfect place for an all out onslaught of the Global Jihad.

The Iranian Ayatollah do not have to fire a Ballistic Missile on the US. He just have to send up a claimed to be commercial Satellite, and put it into high altitude orbit over the Western hemisphere. The Nuclear program in Iran, is of course only for “peaceful purposes”. And there will surely be no nuclear device inside a peaceful Satellite.

Only God of the Bible knows how advanced their programs are.

The War on Bible Prophecy, Part 486




That’s tongue-in-cheek, of course—barely. I’ve written before about what I am calling the “War on Bible Prophecy,” and the truth is, I could write about it endlessly, because it is so pervasive in American evangelical circles today.

Never thought you’d read a statement like that, did you?

I didn’t, either.

This is not a mystery. The future scenario outlined by God in Genesis 3—the enmity between the woman and her Seed, and the serpent and his seed—is clearly played-out today, as the world loathes both Israel and the Messiah.

So then, a key battleground in this long war against Israel is the current direct attack on Bible prophecy.

In his book, The Emerging Church, Dan Kimball makes the following statement:

“The basis of learning has shifted from logic and rational, systematic thought to the realm of experience. People increasingly long for the mystical and the spiritual rather than the evidential and fact-based faith of the modern soil.”

A couple points. Those young people today who are leaning in this direction are doing so because Dan Kimball and his friends are pushing them in that direction with their mystical teachings. Secondly, his comment of course is heavily biased; there are also plenty of people left who will respond to that approach that Emergents so hate, the “evidential and fact-based” apologetic that worked so well the last 2,000 years, between the time of Christ and the apostles…and Dan Kimball.

At a Catalyst Conference in March, 2011, speaker Christine Caine said, “God is still in the miracle business today.”

He certainly is, but the problem for Caine and her friends in Emergent is that they so dislike the eschatology of their parents and grandparents that they are ignoring the biggest miracle in our world today: the fulfillment of predictive prophecy, centered around of course Israel.

Emergents (Caine might dispute that she is Emergent, but the fact is, she pals-around with tons of them) hate Bible prophecy because it pushes against their own understanding of prophecy: man can save himself and is carving-out a glorious future.

This latter view is in direct contrast to the biblical view, which is crystal clear: the Savior must return to prevent man from destroying himself. Of course, if you are a Purpose-Driven pastor or follower drunk on your own accomplishments, this is a hateful view!

Let me digress just for a moment, and attempt to show you what we are up against, in the battle for the hearts and minds of young people—all of whom could find the freedom they so long for, in the God of the Bible.

Brad Lomenick, who leads the Catalyst team (www.catalystspace.com), periodically lists people he’d love to meet. A few months ago, he published another list, and added a list from his assistant, Michelle Hoeft. Among the folks they’d love to have dinner with:

•Nelson Mandela (hugger of dictators and quasi-Marxist)

•Richard Branson (maverick businessman)

•Melinda Gates (wife of Bill Gates)

• Malcolm Shabazz (Malcolm X grandson)

• Michelle Obama

• J.K. Rowling (“Harry Potter” author)

• Zach Galifianakis (profane comedian)

• Eminem (profane rock star)

Why are Brad Lomenick and Michelle Hoeft encouraging young people to follow such people? The answer in part is that they want to prove that they are relevant and the farthest thing from stodgy.

Problem is, those change-agents listed above do not have a biblical worldview, and the world loves them. Please read James 4:4 and meditate on it:

“Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God.”

Also note 1 Corinthians 15:33:

“Be not deceived: evil communications corrupt good manners.”

Hey, guess what? Bad company corrupts good company. This is practical, real-life stuff that should be taught to young people. The Bible is, among other things, a practical-living guide from the Lord.

Our young people today are taught instead that we should follow after rock stars, mystics, and political change-agents.

How sad.

An off-shoot conference effort from Leadership Network (the engine-driver for Catalyst) is “The Nines.” In September, 2009, it was announced:

“We are collaborating with Leadership Network to put-on a free online conference - THE NINES.

“The NINES will be held at your desk, on your computer screen, all day, on 9/9/09 (that's the Tuesday after Labor Day).

“The NINES will feature over 70 phenomenal speakers and leaders of innovation all across the Church. Each speaker will have 9 minutes to give their message, so the content will be focused and practical - not a lot of fluff!

“Speakers include: Mark Driscoll, Perry Noble, Alan Hirsch, John Ortberg, Steven Furtick, Margaret Feinberg, Mark Batterson, Anne Jackson, Neil Cole, Dino Rizzo - and many, many more.”

Problem is, guys like Driscoll and Ortberg have a skewed view of eschatology, and they are influencing many people.

In his landmark book, The Emergent Church: Undefining Christianity, Bob DeWaay explains clearly just how Emergents view eschatology. His book is one I’d highly recommend.

You see, for example, Ortberg (pastor of Menlo Park Presbyterian Church in California) not only attended the odious “Christ at the Checkpoint” conference recently, he once taught at Willow Creek Church, where pro-Palestinian founders Bill and Lynne Hybels give the stage to various left-leaning speakers.

In a July 23, 2002 letter to President Bush, several left-leaning religious leaders urged him to support a Palestinian state; Ortberg was a signatory.

Driscoll, of course, has made his views on the Rapture known far and wide, and he also practices (oddly enough, I think) Reformed Theology, never a friend of Israel or Bible prophecy.

So, my friends, this is a tiny part of what we’re up against. The forces arrayed against the teaching of Bible prophecy are deeply networked, motivated, well-financed, and aggressively opposed to that “old-time religion.”

I’m already at work on “The War on Bible Prophecy, Part 487.”

It’ll be a long series.

Obama extends Israel embassy waiver
June 6, 2012


President Obama extended a waiver for an additional six months that delays moving the U.S. Embassy in Israel to Jerusalem.


Every US president is willing to deny Israel its capital for a handful of petro dollars.

Obama’s waiver, issued June 1, follows in the footsteps of predecessors Bill Clinton and George W. Bush, who also extended the waiver every six months since a law was passed in 1995 mandating moving the U.S. Embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

Presidents are permitted to delay the move on national security grounds.

Some Jewish groups have pushed for the United States to move the embassy as a way to bolster Israeli claims to the city.

Those favoring the use of the waiver say that moving the embassy would anger the Arab world and put the United States in the position of taking sides on an issue that should be settled in peace talks.



B. Hussein Obama has a special love and connection to the Islamic Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

Mitt Romney, the Republican presidential candidate, has privately told Jewish leaders he would not commit to moving the embassy as president.

Source: JTA.org

My comment:

Is a shift of the US embassy from Tel Avis to Jerusalem a matter of national security?

If the answer is “no”, than every US President since 1995 are law breakers.

If the answer is “yes”, there is a need to explain where the treat is located.

Is is the state of Israel that is a threat to the US national security?

I guess the answer is absolutely not.

Could it be Saudi Arabia?

The answer is “more than just likely”. Because if the Saudis have given the US an ultimatum, Washington has bowed and obeyed. Like: – We will permit US military bases in Saudi Arabia on one condition. The US Israeli embassy stays put in Tel Aviv.

This is most likely the reason for why all the US Presidents since 1995 have lived in submission to the Saudi Kingdom. The US economy will collapse if the oil export out of the Persian gulf is blocked.

If the US looses its Military bases in the Saudi, no longer will the US be able to be the “police of the Middle East”.

Washington have told Jerusalem that such a collapse of US military power will also endanger the existence of Israel…..Like if there never existed a God of Israel.

The Jews must not make Washington their “god”, and believe that America is the ultimate protector of the Jewish homeland.


1 Timothy 6:10
For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil. Some people, eager for money, have wandered from the faith and pierced themselves with many griefs.

Also the USA will betray Israel, divided the land and let the “false peace deal” lift the final antichrist onto the stage in Jerusalem. Some silver coins will surely change hands in the deal of the millennium.

The Messiah Jesus is the rock of Israel. He is the servant of God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. Amen.

Judea and Samaria again hot potato in Israel
June 6, 2012


The Likud party is split in two over settlement regulation bill.



Benjamin Netanyahu and Knesset speaker Ruven Rivlin strongly disagree on a law securing Jewish properties on the Mountains in Zion.

The growing controversy surrounding the impending eviction of the Ulpana neighborhood in the West Bank settlement of Beit El is threatening to seriously rattle the Likud.

Party sources told Ynet Tuesday of an ideological spilt between those supporting the High Court-ordered eviction of five houses in the neighborhood, and those who oppose it.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu opposes the bill, which aims to circumvent the court’s ruling. The PM wants the legislation quashed and has therefore imposed party discipline on all Likud ministers, ordering them to enter a nay vote.

Those supporting the bill include Knesset members Danny Danon, Tzipi Hotovely, Gila Gamliel, Miri Regev, Yariv Levin and Coalition Chairman Zeev Elkin.

Source: Ynetnews.com

My comment:

The very idea of Zionism is up for a trial in the Likud party in Israel.

Benjamin Netanyahu is in favor of avoiding international wrath, by erasing a handful of Jewish houses in a large settlement.


Five of the houses in this Jewish settlement might be demolished.

Others in the Likud party do not want the International society to decide where Jews inside Israel can live, and live not.

The UN, US and EU have already told Netanyahu that they expect the Israeli government to erase the houses. The number of Jewish properties are few, but the symbolic act is of enormous value for the anti-Zionist lobby.

This houses are not caravans or tents on a hilltop in Samaria. These are full fledged Jewish bungalows. If Jerusalem is wiling to destroy there home, why not remove the other 100.000 houses, just like Islam demands?

Daniel 9:16
O Lord, in keeping with all your righteous acts, turn away your anger and your wrath from Jerusalem, your city, your holy hill. Our sins and the iniquities of our fathers have made Jerusalem and your people an object of scorn to all those around us.

God of the Bible is watching. The Jews have got yet another chance to obey Him, or to trash the Hebrew Bible than explains that Judea and Samaria are both Jewish properties.

Obama searching Mosques for spiritual support
June 6, 2012


Why would a Christian search in Mosques in the Middle East for spiritual support?



Listening to a sermon of the Mufti, Prime Minster Edrogan of Turkey and the fresh President of the USA, Barack Hussein Obama. Blue Mosque in Istanbul on April 7, 2009.

Be aware that these pictures in this article seems to have nothing to do with the security crisis in the Middle East. But only from a perspective in a human mind, who do not believe in the Spiritual war that is going on.

Islam does not acknowledge that there is a Jewish homeland in the Middle East.

If US President Barack Hussein Obama is a “friend of Israel”, what is he doing touring Mosques in Turkey, Egypt and Saudi Arabia to hunt for both spiritual wisdom and political support?



Obama spent his first weeks of Presidency visiting Mosques in Turkey, Egypt and Saudi Arabia.

The turn of event in Turkey, points to a radicalization of a NATO-member, and a turn towards the Islamic revolution of Iran.

When Obama was in Turkey in April 2007, He did tell the Turkish people about “the great religion of Islam”.

He did not mention that their forefathers in the Ottoman Empire committed a horrible crime in the name of “Allah” as late as 1915. That was the Armenian genocide, where between one million and 1,5 million people were slaughtered by Muslims.

Neither did Obama mention the human right abuses against the Kurdish minority in Eastern Turkey. Tens of thousands of refugees has been displaced, and do need a right of return to their homes.


Please take your shoes off. Because this place is Holy, the Mufti tells Edrogan and Obama.

The Turkish occupation of the Northern part of Cyprus was not on the agenda, when Obama searched for political support in Ankara.

36 years has passed since that illegal occupation started.

That Turkey has forced the United Nation to build a segregation wall through the Cypriot capital of Nicosia, seems to have been blotted out of any discussion between Obama and the Turkish political and religions establishment.

What about the visit to Egypt?


Obama must have heard about the Yom Kippur war in 1973, when Egypt lead a Pan-Arabic military force in a bid to destroy the state of Israel.

Egypt lost the war. Still the accused “colonial, racist apartheid” state of Israel returned the Sinai desert.

What about Obama”s visit to Saudi Arabia?


A claim to be a "Christian" accepts an Islamic medal of honor.



Could it be, that Obama has forgotten that people in the Islamic Kingdom get their hands cut off, if they have stolen or cheated someone?

I guess the troublesome Sharia Law, is a part of Obama”s “great religion” of his father, and his step father?


Obama on his way into Sultan Hassan Mosque in Egypt. Methodist Hillary Clinton joins him.



That ladies can not drive cars in Saudi Arabia, or be member’s of Parliament, does not seems to be of any concern for the US President.

That the Saudis have no free access to web-sites like Face Book or You tube is not a topic that Obama would like to confront the Saudi leadership.

The fact that its illegal to carry a Bible inside Saudi Arabia, and that Jews are not allowed to get Visa’s to the Islamic Kingdom, can only be looked up on a reasonable good Islamic policies.



Mosaic of Obama in the city of Jakarta, in the Islamic nation of Indonesia,. This photo is taken on 25th of October 2008.

Still, some people do not get it.

Obama feels also “Allah the great”.

Joel Osteen to produce movie about Catholic “Mary”
June 7, 2012


Megachurch pastor and best-selling author Joel Osteen will produce his first movie, considered the biblical prequel to the story of The Passion of The Christ.




Joel Osteen and wife victoria is to honor the Queen of Heaven in their first movie.

Israeli actress Odeya Rush will play the role of Mary in Mary, Mother of Christ, which Lionsgate will distribute in North America next year, Variety reported.

“Mary is portrayed as a brave, faithful young woman who readily embraces her divine destiny regardless of the sacrifices and hardships she must endure,” said Osteen, whose best-selling books include Your Best Life Now and Every Day a Friday.

Rush joins actors Julia Ormond and Peter O’Toole in the movie, to be directed by Alister Grierson. The original screenplay for Mary, Mother of Christ was written by Benedict Fitzgerald (The Passion of The Christ) and Barbara Nicolosi, Variety said. Mary, Mother of Christ is produced by Mary Aloe of Aloe Entertainment and Shawn Williamson of Bright Light Pictures.

Besides Osteen, Mike Dolan and Ben Barton of Smithfield Street Productions, Alan Weinberger of the ASCII Group, the Samaritan Group and philanthropists Frank Carlucci (former U.S. Secretary of Defense), Mike Connell, Robert Gottlieb, Mike Nead and Herb Lande will also serve as executive producers, Variety reported.

Filming is scheduled to begin this summer in the Middle East.

My comment:

I have for a long time claimed that all false teachers will accept the Antichrist of Rome. Many prosperity teachers in the World of Faith movement have already accepted the papacy as a seat of Christianity.

These are man like Benny Hinn, Rick Joyner and Joel Osteen.

The very idea of making a movie about “Mary the mother of Christ”, is to evaluate the Queen of Heaven. If the Charismatic pentecostal movement shall be accepted by the Vatican, they have to honor the dogmas.

Benedict Fitzgerald is a Roman Catholic, who will surely make a movie that can get an approval from her Bishop.

What can we expect from these movie makers?

The Jewishness of Miriam will be deleted, and an antisemitic false gospel will be presented.

This is a recorded interview in Star Bulletin with Benedict Fitzgerald. It is recorded in 2004, when she directed the movie “passion of Christ” with Mel Gibson.


Benedict Fitzgerald: More difficult. … From a technical point of view, I understood it would have to have certain epic qualities, and simultaneously with that, it also had to have intimacy, which is vitally important. These two things have to be occurring at all times because it’s an eyewitness account.

The true Catholic church is an apostolic, not an ecumenical, church. We depend on the eyewitnesses and Holy Ghost for everything we believe.

Serious in Syria

Word came this weekend that “rebels” in Syria were fighting government forces in Damascus. This is obviously quite significant, since dictators caught in their own capitols often don’t fare well (see Hitler, Adolf).

Many have wondered why Obama and NATO haven’t intervened/interfered in Syria, as they did in Libya (and, indirectly, Egypt). We can only speculate, but a clue lies in the geo-political situation in Libya, ruled with an iron fist by Muammar Gaddafi. The cartoonish Libyan was more like a tribal chieftan, and his loyalists would have held out much longer against the Muslim Brotherhood-inspired “rebels” fighting against Tripoli…had not NATO and Obama been so hell-bent on removing Gaddafi.

Hauled-out and shot, Mussolini-style, last October, Gaddafi passed from the scene as a chilling Muslim horde moved across the sands of the Middle East.

In Syria, however, Bashar Al-Assad (himself a mass-murderer) is more of a secular autocrat whose loyalists make up only about 10 percent of the population. Assad, an Alawite (a branch of Islam) who, perhaps surprisingly to many, has been relatively easy on Syrian Christians, has been allowed to continue in power—savagely murdering his own citizens in the year-long uprising—because, in my opinion, he was going to fall without Western intervention.

If he killed 10,000 men, women, and children, well, tsk, tsk.

Gaddafi had to be removed much more quickly in order for the Brotherhood to come to power.

In Syria, once the inevitable happens and Assad is strung up by his heels, the conditions will exist for the Muslim Brotherhood to rule that country. We know where that leaves Israel.

The Jerusalem Post reported that:

“Russia will not oppose the departure of Syria's President Bashar Assad if such a move is a result of a dialogue between Syrians themselves and is not enforced through external pressure, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said on Saturday.”

No matter who lands in power in Syria, Russia intends to be a player for the duration. Interesting, in light of Ezekiel 38,39.

Because Assad was similar to Hosni Mubarak of Egypt, Jordan’s King Abdullah and, to some extent, Saddam Hussein, he was content to be a menace to Israel, but not a lethal threat. The new rulers of Middle East countries will be much more like the Iranian mullahs—religious psychopaths who do have lethal intentions for Israel.

The passing of the Assad regime in Damascus provides the framework for the next rulers to unwittingly bring Isaiah 17 to pass.

68 per cent of Arab-Israelis prefer to live in Israel
June 13, 2012


Survey by Haifa University shows over two-thirds of Arab-Israelis are resigned to living in a Jewish state, but 63 per cent don’t think it’s fair‬‬.



Jews and Arabs live in peace inside the Zionist state of Israel, defamed by global media.

Some 80 per cent of Arabs living in Israel blame Jews for the Nakba, but 60 per cent of them are resigned to Israel as a state with a Jewish majority, the Index of Arab-Jewish Relations for 2011, conducted by Prof. Sami Samuha of the University of Haifa shows.

The full results of the survey, which Samuha has run annually for the last 30 years, are due to be announced at a university conference on Thursday.
Despite the fact that most of the respondents accepted Israel as a majority Jewish state, 63 per cent of Arabs polled believe that it was not fair. Seventy-three percent of Arab respondents said they believe that the government treated Arabs as second-class citizens undeserving of equality.

Moreover, 68.3 per cent of Arabs polled said they preferred to live in Israel than in other countries. Slightly more than half (56.5 per cent) accepted Israel as a Hebrew-speaking state, and 58 per cent accepted Shabbat as the day of rest.

In Israel there are a lot of benefits and a modern way of life, as well as economic and political stability. You can’t compare the lives of Arabs in the Galilee to that of Arabs in Palestine, Lebanon, or Egypt. There is also the element that in Israel there is no concern of an Islamist takeover.”

Samuha pointed to responses that showed that 71 per cent of Israel Arabs felt that Israel was a good place to live, while 60 per cent said they felt it was a home and a homeland.

Source: Ynetnews.com

My comment:

The Word is getting polarized. For or against a Jewish homeland, where a majority of Jews can rule them selves.

The majority of Israeli Arabs are happy living inside Israel. 71 per cent is a clear and absolute majority.

This number makes all claims that Israel is a racist state quite ridiculous. And even worse. Large parts of educated people in the West brand Israel as the last apartheid state.

There is no logic in such claims. The Jews have always looked for a valid and understandable reason behind Jew-hate. But there are non. This kind of hatred has its origin in the spiritual realm of darkness. It is Satan who makes his children hate the chosen people of God, Because they birthed the Messiah, who stripped Lucifer of all his powers at Calvary Hill.

The truth is as simple as this.

Interfaith Jerusalem: “Let us save the environment”
June 13, 2012


“What emerged from the panel of distinguished clergymen was a vision of interfaith tolerance, even brotherhood”




All care about the environment. But who care for souls that has been deceived by Satan, and do not want to preach the Gospel?

This was the message from the Interfaith Climate and Energy Conference that took place on March 19, in Jerusalem.

The conference was organized by the Interfaith Center for Sustainable Development together with the Konrad Adenauer Foundation.



“I came today, not to say anything new – but to learn.”

The Greek Orthodox Archbishop, Dr. Elias Chacour. opened the Interfaith Climate and Energy Conference.

The atmosphere among the 200-odd participants was optimistic. They gladly heard speeches on man’s God-sent responsibility towards creation.

The Greek Orthodox Patriarch of Jerusalem, Patriarch Theophilos III, spoke movingly about the intimate relationship between creation and the Creator.

Amid quotations from the Old and New Testaments and the Koran, most of what emerged from the panel of distinguished clergymen was a vision of interfaith tolerance, even brotherhood.

Sheik Muhammad Amara, Imam of Israel’s Ministry of the Interior spoke more directly of equality.


“It’s easy to gather religious leaders who tell us what we want to hear,” he said. “Truth is difficult. We can’t live in a good environment unless there is justice.”

“I wish to push back the idea of technology as our goal. Global warming, smog, and the hole in the ozone appeared as a consequence of our tyranny over the land. All of us must work together to restore balance.”

The conference’s high tone revolved around establishing the brotherhood of man and respect for the planet. Not much talk about exactly how the world’s believers can effect change. It was disappointing to perceive how little great religious leaders are involved in environmental issues.

Rabbi Ronen Lubitch, rabbi of Kibbutz Nir Etzion and lecturer at Haifa University, was possibly the most knowledgeable and pro-active of the panel speakers.

He spoke of specific ecological disasters such as the effect of industrial waste on the ecology, and food security for the expanding world population. Sheik Amara and Rabbi Ronen both raised the issue of ecological education in schools.

Following the panelists’ presentations, we viewed video clips with messages from world religious leaders. Especially thrilling were the Dalai Lama’s smiling reminder that what affects the environment will ultimately affect the world’s peoples, and the late Lubavitcher Rebbe speaking in Yiddish about the mitzvah of developing solar energy. Participants then gathered into workshops on climate change and sustainable energy.

If 85 per cent of the people in the world do what they do as taught by religious leaders, these leaders should educate them in caring for the environment.

Introducing the Interfaith Climate and Energy Conference



Source: Green Prophet.com

My comment:

Jesus did not enter Jerusalem with the message: “Save the environment”. He had no “green prophets”.

The essence of the message from the Messiah is: “Repent from your sins, and accept Me as God and savior”.

The united message from the Imam’s, Catholic Bishops, Jewish rabbis and Dalai Lama is the message that has its origin in the United nations (UN). All religious leaders must accept the UN’s role in forming a Global One World Government.

All people can agree around a message that “god” wants us to unite to save the environment.

On top of this agenda will come the last man of lawlessness. He will claim to be “god” and unite all religions to submit to the message from a global summit in Jerusalem. The World will hail him as the leader of the flock.

The problem for all who believe in Jesus, is that the last and final antichrist and the UN will not proclaim the gospel about salvation in the blood of Jesus, only.

Imam’s and priest might have spent all their lives together planting trees, but will still perish because of their acceptance of sin and faithlessness as “holiness”.

The Bible expose Anglican and Roman Catholic bishops as fools. They are not supposed to become friends of the World, and set their focus on the affairs of the World.


2 Timothy 2:3-4
Endure hardship with us like a good soldier of Christ Jesus. No one serving as a soldier gets involved in civilian affairs—he wants to please his commanding officer.

John 15:19
If you belonged to the world, it would love you as its own. As it is, you do not belong to the world, but I have chosen you out of the world. That is why the world hates you.

In stead of listening to video messages from the head of the Buddhist religion, and promote and distribute his message, they should read, obey and proclaim the messages from Jesus of the Bible.

Ottoman turks force Obama to expel Israel
June 12, 2012


The U.S. blocked Israel’s participation in the Global Counterterrorism Forum’s (GCTF) first meeting in Istanbul on Friday.




They ploy against Israel as we speak. If the Jewish nation is not deleted, than their “allah” is a false God.

This blockade took place even though Israel has extensive experience in counterterrorism.

A source in Washington said Israel was excluded from the meeting because of fierce objections by Turkish President Erdogan. Israel tried hard to obtain an invitation to the meeting, and its exclusion has greatly disappointed officials in Jerusalem.

The GCTF, one of the pillars of President Barack Obama’s antiterrorism campaign, was established in September 2011. The White House calls the forum as a wise use of force against terrorism, and chose Turkey as the forum’s joint chair, together with the US.

29 countries are participating in the GCTF, ten of which are Arab and/or Muslim countries: Algeria, Egypt, Indonesia, Jordan, Morocco, Pakistan, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Turkey, and the United Arab Emirates. Other members include China, Russia, India, and Western European countries.

Source: Globes.co.il

My comment:

In Obama the US has submitted to the dhimme attitude of the infidels. Non-Muslim must obey the Mullas, or face the sword.

Barack Hussein Obama has a deep desire in his heart. And that is to be loved in the Muslim World. And to be loved within Koran obeying Islam, an semi-Muslim like Obama must take a stand against Israel.

Since Turkey is a member of NATO, Obama feel the need to stand with his Islamic “peace partner”.

By submitting to the Turkish demand for the “Counterterrorism Forum”, is will quickly become a “supply-terrorism forum”.


Joel 3:2
I will gather all nations and bring them down to the Valley of Jehoshaphat. There I will enter into judgment against them concerning my inheritance, my people Israel, for they scattered my people among the nations and divided up my land.

The Zionist state of Israel is indeed a hair in the soup. At the end of the road it will be God and Israel against the rest.

Do not end up on the wrong side.

The new regime that will change Jerusalem
June 14, 2012


When the Pope landed in Jerusalem, he came by helicopter to the Mount of Olives. Just like a copy-cat Messiah.



May 2009. The Pope is transported by the IDF, and lands just north of the Mount of Olives at the military helipad at Mount Scopus.

For all who are not aware of the Roman Catholic influence in East Jerusalem, be aware of the mode of transportation the Pope used when He came to Jerusalem in May 2009.

In stead of being transported in a limousine from Ben Gurion Airport, the “Holy see” came by helicopter. The IDF transported the Pontiff to Mount Scopus, which is located just north of the Mount of Olives.

The significance of this flight is highly prophetic. Because the last and final antichrist will also land on Ben Gurion Airport. He is supposed to bring “peace” to Israel and the entire Middle East. The last and final antichrist can easily be discerned by the mode of transportation. Because He can not copy the second coming of the Messiah.

While the antichrist might land on the Mount of Olives in a helicopter, the true Messiah will return to this place from the clouds of Heaven. He will come with full power and in glory, shining like the sun.

The Bible says that when the feet of the Messiah lands on the Mount of Olives, there will be a huge earthquake in Jerusalem.


Zechariah 14: 2-4

I will gather all the nations to Jerusalem to fight against it; the city will be captured, the houses ransacked, and the women raped. Half of the city will go into exile, but the rest of the people will not be taken from the city. Then the LORD will go out and fight against those nations, as he fights on a day of battle. On that day his feet will stand on the Mount of Olives, east of Jerusalem, and the Mount of Olives will be split in two from east to west, forming a great valley, with half of the mountain moving north and half moving south.

No doubt that the Pope is a powerful leader. But this landing with a helicopter is not enough to rock the city. Even is some bombs were detonated in the neighborhood, any Vatican delegation will not be able to create an Earthquake.

Lets take a look at some pictures from the Popes last visit to Israel:


A Roman Catholic nun hails the Pope as he arrives in Jerusalem.


A Papist puts the Vatican flag on a roof top in Jerusalem.


The poster of the Pope is put in a window in Jerusalem.


An Israeli textile worker makes Vatican flags.


The Vatican flag used as decor in a street of Jerusalem.


rab Catholics in Nazareth waives the Vatican flag at the arrival of the Pope.


The Pope in the center of an Interfaith gathering in Nazareth, May 14th 2009.


The Pope is treated a royal on his arrival at Ben Gurion Airport.


The Papal trone is presently located in Jerusalem's Church Of The Holy Sepulchre.


The Pope takes a stroll at the Temple Mount, together with the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem.


Every morning, the Vatican flag is hoisted just outside the Temple Mount.


A Religious Zionist Jew carried away from a protest against the royal treatment of the Pope.



The two cheif Rabbis in Israel came to the Vatican to greet the late Pope with costly gifts.

The last and final antichrist will be welcomed to Jerusalem. In millions He will be worshiped. The Pope’s visit to the city of David sets an example. It was like a dry trial.

The city was covered with flags of the Vatican statehood, the IDF gave him security, and only some religious Zionist Jews protested against this abomination coming to their home turfs.

The Pope was guided from the helicopter, to the Temple Mount. He took a stroll up on the Temple Mount together with the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem, who controls the Dome of the Rock.


2 Thessalonians 2:2-4
not to become easily unsettled or alarmed by the teaching allegedly from us—whether by a prophecy or by word of mouth or by letter—asserting that the day of the Lord has already come. Don’t let anyone deceive you in any way, for that day will not come until the rebellion occurs and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the man doomed to destruction. He will oppose and will exalt himself over everything that is called God or is worshiped, so that he sets himself up in God’s temple, proclaiming himself to be God.

Since the Pope in not yet in control of the holiest site of Judaism, He has to move on another 700 meters. Into the Latino Quarter, where His throne stands.

One day, when Islam and the Catholic religion has made a peace agreement, the Pope will shift the location up on the Temple Mount. There He will sit down in “Gods temple”, and be hailed as “god”. The very “Holy father”.

Arabs concerned over Vatican talks with Israel
June 15, 2012


There are rumors on the Islamic wold that the Pope is ready to accept Israeli law on Catholic Church properties in East Jerusalem.




The Political wrestling over the future of the Temple Mount goes on.

Palestinian officials voiced concern about possible concessions by the Vatican ahead of talks on Tuesday between Israel and the Holy See on the status of Catholic Church property in Jerusalem.

The Palestinians said a copy of an alleged draft agreement prepared for the talks, which could not be independently verified, reportedly includes an implicit recognition by the Vatican of Israel’s annexation of East Jerusalem.

Asked Monday about the meeting, Vatican spokesman Federico Lombardi would only say that the talks would take place on Tuesday following a previous meeting in Jerusalem in January and gave no further details.

The Vatican is reportedly preparing to accept the application of Israeli law on Catholic Church properties in East Jerusalem, which Palestinians say would be a violation of international law.

Nabil Shaath, a Fateh negotiator for relations with the Holy See, said the Vatican should “reaffirm its historic position in favour of the Palestinian people’s inalienable rights in line with international law”.

“We trust that the Holy See will clarify the situation and affirm that it will uphold its legal and moral responsibility,” he said.
The Palestinian Islamic movement Hamas which rules the Gaza Strip also voiced its “serious concern” at the reported draft agreement.

“Holy Islamic and Christian sites will remain Palestinian and Arab and that their control or their administrations will not fall into the hands of the occupier,” Hamas said.

Israel and the Vatican have been holding talks on the legal status of Catholic Church property in the Holy Land since 1999.

Source: Jordan Times

My comment:

This article from Jordan Times brings is interesting stuff.

Like: What is the Vatican going to get in exchange for a recognition of Israeli laws in East Jerusalem?

Could it be the acknowledgement of a special regime to be established in the Old city?

The Holy see is not interested in ruling the suburbs in East Jerusalem, which has a Arabic speaking majority. The Pope is interesting in the Temple Mount. He wants to control the very site where God the Holy Spirit was reigning in Jerusalem, and from where the “prince of peace” is coming back.

The views of the Hamas are the views of the World at large. That it is “Palestine” that shall control the Temple Mount, and the so-called holy sites of “Christianity”. This is the de facto consequence of refusing to move any embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. The Western World has submitted to the Islamic demands in regards to the capital of Israel.

Jesus the Messiah is not to concerned about the ongoing political wrestling. He will come back to Jerusalem, and kill the appointed fake “prince of peace”, elected by the US, EU, UN, Russia and China, and the Pope, as the Global leader.

We know that the final antichrist is about to enter the stage in Jerusalem, and we will reject his authority and visions as falsehood. His miracles will mot impress all who know the Word of God and listen to the Holy Spirit.

Catholics and communists tried to block Jewish control over Jerusalem
June 15, 2012


Catholic, Muslim and Communist nations voted for an International Zone to be established in Jerusalem in 1949.




Anything but Jewish control over Jerusalem was acceptable to Catholics, Muslims and Communists in 1949.

Who were the supporter of a United Nation resolution that tried to block Jews from gaining control over their ancient capital?

You might not be surprised that the Muslim block in the United Nations, voted for a resolution that opted for an International zone to be established in Jerusalem in 1949. It was to be called a “Special International regime”.

Lets take a look at the resolution:


International Regime for Jerusalem, General Assembly Resolution 303 (IV), 9 December 1949:

(1) The City of Jerusalem shall be established as a corpus separatum under a special international regime and shall be administered by the United Nations;

In spite of the vehement opposition of Israel and Jordan, the General Assembly restated its aim that Jerusalem be placed under a permanent international regime, and the Trusteeship Council was called upon to prepare a Statute for the city.

The Resolution was adopted by 38 votes in favour, 14 against, 7 abstentions, Most of the Catholic, Moslem and Communist States voted for.

It might be rather surprising that the Communist block voted for the same resolution, together with the block of Catholic nations like Italy, Spain and Portugal.

Not so strange: The same antisemitic block of nations today, tries to rob the control over Jerusalem from the Jewish people.

Who voted against the formation of an International Zone in Jerusalem?

Not surprisingly, all the reformed Christian nations of the Western Civilization.

What does this tell us?

A simple message. Jesus promised to bless people who loved Him for a thousand generations. He used reformed Christian nations to block the devils plans of denying Jewish control over Jerusalem, a control they will not loose before the appointed time.



A special regime, that will be ruled by the Vatican.

When the Jewish freedom fighters ended British occupation over Western Jerusalem, the Kingdom of Jordan invaded and occupied East Jerusalem.

It was interesting to study the documents available on the website of the Israel Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

You should take a look your self.

Please also take a look at the “special regime”, planed by the “Old City of Jerusalem Initiative”, an ecumenical body formed to complete the devils task delayed by 62 years.

The Vatican is a copy of Old City of Jerusalem
June 15, 2012


Mussolini and the Pope shaped the Vatican city as a copy of the Old City of Jerusalem. Rome was labeled “The eternal city”.



In 1929 Mussolini shaped the Vatican city. St. Peters square is formed as a key. The key to "heaven" held by the Pope as a claimed successor of Peter.

The Vatican city is 0,44 km2. The Pope is sitting in His temple, and claim to be the “Holy Father”, and the “Vicar of Christ”.

The Old City of Jerusalem is 0,9 km2. This will be the very location where the last antichrist will rule in the days before the Messiah returns in the clouds of Heaven.



The Dome of the rock and St. Peters Square is localted at the same spot.

If you look at the location of St. Peters basilica in Rome and the Dome of the Rock, you see the copy cat made in Rome. The Dome of the Rock and the basilica in Rome, are even built in the same fashion.


St. Peters Basillica.


The Dome of the rock in Old city of Jerusalem.



The Pope and the Imams will find a solution to who will govern the coming special regime in the Old City.

Fascist dictator Benito Mussolini prepared for the next Catholic Kingdom in Jerusalem. Mussolini even gifted the Islamic Warf on the Temple Mount the marble pillars used during a renovation of the Dome of the rock. Read more about Mussolini’s special gift, accepted by the British rulers who took control of Jerusalem in 1917, That was hardly five years before the Fascist takeover of Rome.


This pin explains wat kind of hybrid status that is waiting for Jerusalem.




When the city of Jerusalem is divided, the special regime that is coming in East Jerusalem might use this flag.

If Hitler and Mussolini had won World War II, the Pope would have become the leader of both the Vatican state and the city of Jerusalem.. Than the Pontiff could have shifted his throne from Rome to the Old City of Jerusalem without any objections.

The true Holy Father and His Messiah will soon rule in Jerusalem. But tens of millions will fall for the ultimate deception staged by the counterfeit “kingdom” of Rome. Satan has taken the Roman Catholics for a ride. You better jump of the train before it crashes.

Revelation 17:1-8


The beast, which you saw, once was, now is not, and yet will come up out of the Abyss and go to its destruction. The inhabitants of the earth whose names have not been written in the book of life from the creation of the world will be astonished when they see the beast, because it once was, now is not, and yet will come.

The Roman Catholics do not understand. They will not be astonished before Jesus reveal who the beast is. Those whose name is written in the book of life do understand, by simply comparing scriptures to not Biblical dogmas made by the “Holy see”.

The Enemy Within


There are several realities on the ground in Israel that show us clearly the global community is ineffective in trying to bring peace between Arabs and Jews.

The Meir Amit Intelligence and Terrorism Information Center this week brought an interesting fact to light:

The website of the Jerusalem Brigades, the military-terrorist wing of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad, recently posted pictures from the end-of-the-year party held at one of its affiliated kindergartens in the Gaza Strip. The children put on a display in which they pretended to be armed Palestinian terrorist operatives, Palestinian prisoners and Israelis.”

A teacher at the school emphasized the “need” to teach children jihad, and the idea of “resistance.”

(Do they know Israel supplies their electricity?)

One of the children was interviewed and said:

“When I grow up, I want to get on a bus with lots of Zionists and blow myself up in a suicide bombing attack and kill them..."

This according to the Jerusalem Brigades website and Hamas' PALDF forum.

Among others, for years Hillary Clinton, as the top American diplomat, has “strongly” urged the Palestinians to remove such teaching from school curriculum. This demand stretches back 20 years, to the disastrous Oslo Accords.



The Palestinians have never complied and by the way, I call on all American religious leaders, such as Lynne Hybels, Jim Wallis, and Shane Claiborne (I could name dozens more) to publicly repudiate this ghastly form of child abuse, xenophobia, and anti-semitism.

I have toured the Meir Amit facility north of Tel Aviv, and seen the tragic school notebooks, drawings, and toys that show clearly the Palestinian youth are taught to glorify death and murder.

Here is the point: until the international community gets serious about holding the Palestinians accountable, we will actually continue to move away from realistic chances for peace.

Also, last month, specialists at West Point’s Combating Terrorism Center released English translations of some documents captured at Osama Bin Laden’s Pakistan hideout. Among other things, the documents reveal that Al-Qaeda is coordinating with a Gaza Strip group called the Army of Islam.

This chilling revelation tells us that the most lethal terror groups in the world are a direct internal threat to Israel. By extension, they are a threat to the rest of us (some of my local National Guard friends have operated in the Sinai in the past few years, so this news impacts very close to home).

One of the documents reveals that the Army of Islam was asking Al-Qaeda leadership if it is permissible under Islamic law for them to accept operational funding from outside groups, including—and this perhaps for comic effect—the “infidel” Shi’ite state of Iran.

Do you see? This Islamic version of the Hatfields and McCoys can certainly come together when working to kill Israelis and Americans.

For context, you should know that the above document dates from 2006 and, according to the Israelis, the Army of Islam has “considerable operative capabilities,” and two of its operatives were involved in the kidnapping of Gilad Shalit.

The Army of Islam was also involved—knock, knock, knock, Lynne Hybels, Jim Wallis, and Shane Claiborne—according to the Hosni Mubarak government in Egypt of being involved in a terror attack on a Coptic church in Alexandria in 2011.

Do any evangelicals who support the Palestinians decry Palestinian abuse of Copts? Aren’t they Christians, too? Or do they count?

Is anybody listening? The segment of Palestinian society that is radicalized is of course an existential threat to the rest of us, but let’s be honest: they are also a threat to themselves. Can you imagine living in this kind of hate-filled environment? Can you imagine the psychological damage inflicted by these terror groups on their own people?

I cannot. I can only grieve for them, reduced to living in that kind of emotional squalor. If the international community doesn’t care about Jews, do they really care about Arabs? Why does our diplomatic corps pacify the Palestinian Authority/PLO?

Finally, another hair-raising development is being reported by my friend, the Italian journalist Giulio Meotti, who wrote this week for Arutz Sheva that the campaign to erase Hebrew and Christian history is in full-swing by the Palestinians. This is one of the most odious efforts going on today in this arena, and the rest of us should be outraged.

According to Meotti:

“At UNESCO’s next session, which will run from June 24th to July 6th in St. Petersburg, the UN cultural body will assess the Palestinian request for admission of the “Birthplace of Jesus: Church of the Nativity and the Pilgrimage Route, Bethlehem” to the list of world heritage sites.

“The Christian shrine will become Palestine’s first world heritage site.

“Next in line is the Hevron’s Cave of the Patriarchs.”

Where is the outrage? Since Yasser Arafat arrived in Israel two decades ago, a systematic effort has been underway to remove Jewish history from the land. This absurd reality has been allowed to continue (Bill Clinton heard Arafat deny there were ever Jewish temples on the Temple Mount, and the man who had sat under the Southern Baptist teaching of W.O. Vaught Jr. no doubt just sat there and bit his lower lip).

American diplomats, political operatives, and religious leaders have let it go on.

Do you understand that if they deny Jewish history they are also denying Christian history?

Do religious leaders like Rick Warren, Bill Hybels, John Ortberg, and John Spong think this through? Spong, who champions his own efforts to combat anti-semitism (he says this with a straight face) also relegates the Hebrew scriptures to the realm of myth. Is he not aware that one can’t get more anti-semitic than that?

I worry about something else: facts are on the side of those of us who support Israel, yet the “millennial generation” is not so moved by facts. They are moved by experience and feelings and narrative (the latter of course can be pregnant with lies, but they seem unaware of that). As Meotti puts it:

“The Palestinians are trying to erase any trace of Jewish history in Judea and Samaria. Yet a few days ago Israeli archaeologists discovered a seal bearing the name “Bethlehem” in ancient Hebrew script from First Temple times, one of the most important pieces of physical evidence supporting the Jewish claim to the town before it became revered as the birthpace of Jesus.”

Are Claiborne, Bob Roberts (senior pastor, NorthWood Church, Keller, TX), Joel Hunter, and Tony Campolo aware they are being used as stooges by the Palestinians when they appear at Christ at the Checkpoint? Do they realize they are part of a diabolical effort to erase their own religious heritage? Don’t you find that profoundly ironic and sick?

Mustafa Barghouti, a so-called moderate in the Palestinian authority, said in 2009 that Jesus “is the first Palestinian who was tortured in this land.”

Hello? Is this thing on?

What in the world has happened to our world? Truth is lie and lie is truth. Our own Christian leadership in America cannot discern good from evil.

Meotti also makes the following salient points (the entire article can be read at: http://www.israelnationalnews.com/Articles/Article.aspx/11770#.T9ypf7-shXX)

“There is a growing global network of Islamophile Christians with organizations like Amos Trust, Christian Aid, Sabeel, Living Stones, World Council of Churches, and influential bishops and pastors like Mitri Raheb, Stephen Sizer, Elias Chacour, Naim Ateek and Michael Prior.

“It doesn’t matter that Jesus was not born a Christian, but a Jew, and that Bethlehem was a Jewish town in Judea, not a Muslim one - because there was no Christianity before his death and certainly no Islam for hundreds of years after his death.

“It doesn't matter that the Palestinian Authority persecuted Arab Christians in its midst.”

You know what? I think he’s right. I don’t think these things matter to those who let themselves be used by Jew-haters and Christ-deniers. That’s the answer. Which is why it is critical to reach those who don’t yet understand, or who are on the fence.

When I attended the Evangelicals for Middle East Understanding conference in California last fall, the only speaker I felt who lives in reality is Botrus Mansour, director of Nazareth Baptist School.

Mansour would certainly not agree with me about many things, but he did say something profound and enlightening. He said there are two kinds of people in the world: those who believe man is inherently good, and those who believe man to be inherently bad.

He’s spot-on, of course. What we have to hope and pray for is a growing awareness that the latter condition is the accurate one.

Son of Hamas exposes violent false prophet Muhammad
June 21, 2012

Mosab Hassan Yousef making film highlighting prophet’s penchant for “violence.”

Former Hamas man to 'tell truth' about Muhammad

Full story here:http://www.jpost.com/Features/InThespotlight/Article.aspx?id=274511

Mosab Hassan Yousef making film highlighting prophet's penchant for "violence."


Ramallah-born Mosab Hassan Yousef has made enough enemies in the Palestinian territories to last a lifetime. The eldest son of Sheikh Hassan Yousef, one of the founders of Hamas, spent his early years as a Hamas activist and went through more than a few stints in Israeli prison.

But for ten years, Yousef was “the Green Prince,” a code name given to him by the Shin Bet (Israel Security Agency), with whom he worked to prevent dozens of terrorist attacks during the second intifada, saving hundreds of Israeli lives.

Two years ago, Yousef – who now lives in the US – published the book Son of Hamas: A Gripping Account of Terror, Betrayal, Political Intrigue and Unthinkable Choices, in which he detailed his disillusionment with the violence inside Hamas and his decision to assist Israel from around 1996 to 2006.

Now 34, Yousef is a devout Christian who is open about his faith as well as his pessimism for the future of peace in the Middle East.

Source: Jerusalem Post

My comment:

There are not many followers of Jesus who reach the headlines in Israel. Most claimed to be “Christians” are rather lukewarm in regards to Israel, if they ever will support, pray for, or visit the Mountains of Zion.

Mosab Hassan Yousef is a great witness of a living God. Making a film that exposes the truth about a wicked, violent and evil false prophet called Muhammad, will obviously not make this man popular in the Arab World.

But a lot of people will be astonished to see that a lot of “Christians” will attack this project. Simply because they are carnal, corrupt and religious. They do not want to touch the issue of this violent ideology, but would rather like to support “Interfaith project” with what they brand as a “religion of peace”.

John the Baptist came in the spirit of Elijah, and demanded fruits of repentance before baptizing people. The brood of vipers refused to listen. Many of them are still around, even appointed priests and pastors in our fellowships and Churches.

Hamas rockets have killed 44 Israelis in six years
June 21, 2012


Rockets from Gaza have killed 44 Israelis and crippled 1687 since Hamas declared “independence” in 2006.




The Hamas keep on sending rockets into Southern Israel, in a bid to destroy the Jewish state.

Hamas’ weapons arsenal is growing with the new and advanced Iranian made Fajr-3, Katyushas/Grads, anti-tank missiles, and heavy mortars. 
 Over the past 6 years, Hamas rocket fire has killed 44 innocent Israeli civilians and injured a staggering 1,687.

Source: The IDF

My comment:

The Israeli Government promised the Jewish homeland peace, when the IDF destroyed Jewish properties in Gush Katif in Gaza in 2005.

The idea was that when Gaza is turned into a “Jew free zone”, the Arabs will chose peace, and starts to develop their sociality and submit to human rights.

Naive, secular and disconnected religious people believed the message.

After a year, the people in Gaza revolved against the US and UN backed Puppet regime of the PLO. The Iranian controlled Hamas took over in a bloody cue.

Today we can see the fruits of this political mistake of Jerusalem.


Daniel 12:1
[ The End Times ] “At that time Michael, the great prince who protects your people, will arise. There will be a time of distress such as has not happened from the beginning of nations until then. But at that time your people—everyone whose name is found written in the book—will be delivered.

Luke 21:23
How dreadful it will be in those days for pregnant women and nursing mothers! There will be great distress in the land and wrath against this people.

Are the Israeli government going to commit the same mistake in the Jewish districts of Judea and Samaria as they did in Gaza?

Hamas son: Islam is a religion that teaches people to kill
June 21, 2012


Islam is not a religion of peace. The biggest terrorist is the God of the Quran.



This is a statement of Mosab Hassan Yousef, who helped Israel’s security forces in their fight against the Islamic militant group Hamas.



«I know this is very dangerous and this will offend many people. The more you follow the steps of the prophet of Islam and the God of Islam, the more you get close to being a terrorist».

Yousef got a story to tell in his new book «Son of Hamas».
«To be honest with you, being killed is not the worst thing that can happen», he said Wednesday in an interview with The Associated Press. «If they want to do kill me … let them do it, and they will be responsible for my blood.».

In his memoir, Yousef, the 32-year-old son of a Hamas founder, claims he was one of the Shin Bet security agency’s best assets and was dubbed The Green Prince, a reference to his Hamas pedigree and the Islamists’ signature green color.

During his 50-minute interview, for which he arrived with armed security, Yousef criticized Hamas leaders including political chief Khaled Meshaal. He lashed out at Hamas, saying the organization lives in the Middle Ages.

And he hurled his most inflammatory comments at Islam, which he called a religion that teaches people to kill.

Source: Jerusalem Post

My comment:

It is amazing to see that Christian leaders have started to defend Islam. While Muslim converts, who know the “god of Islam”, warns against the religion they once practiced.

Who are we going to listen to?

Rome has already made peace with Islam, and the Roman Catholic Church and Mecca is going to form an end time religious platform in the name of peace. A big compromise outside of the truth. And any Christian who believe this is the right path, should listen to this «son of Hamas».

India offers 10 USD billion aid to the eurozone
June 21, 2012


India on Tuesday committed to extend a USD 10 billion lifeline to help ailing Eurozone countries grappling with a sovereign debt crisis.




Sonia Gandhi is a born Catholic from Italy. Now she and PM Manmohan Singh gives Europe some financial aid.

Prime Minister Manmohan Singh announced India’s contribution to the International Monetary Fund’s $456 billion bailout corpus at the G-20 summit at the Mexican resort of Los Cabos.

India’s commitment is part of the BRICS funding estimated to be around $75 billion, out of which China’s contribution will be USD 43 billion. Like India, Brazil and Russia pledged USD10 billion each, while South Africa offered $2 billion.

Source: The Times of India

My comment:

It must be a great feeling for all Indians, that India finally offers the helpless Europeans some financial aid.

For hundreds of years, the colonial European powers burned, crippled and killed Indians, in a bid to control this nation who accounts for 1,2 billion souls.

The Kingdom of Portugal and Spain were in union during their onslaught on India. This kingdom represented one of the colonial powers who committed most crimes against humanity in India.

The worst part of the Roman Catholic onslaught on India took place from 1498 to around 1520. Their criminal activities kept hundreds of millions of people in India away from the living God, Jesus of Nazareth. The Indians could simply not phantom that such evil could represent the Messiah who walked in Israel 2.000 years ago.

The Portuguese attacked and burned almost all ancient Jewish settlements on the west coast of India. On their onslaught on Goa in November 1510, they massacred more than 6.000 people within three days. From 1560 to 1812, more than 16.000 people are arrested, and condemned during the Inquisition of Goa. In the hundreds, Jews, Hindus, and Thomas Christians were burnt at stake.

Indians who refused to accept Catholics from Portugal as Christians were right. Such criminals had absolutely nothing to do with Biblical Christianity. They were all filled with the spirit of antichrist.

If Europe ever is going to pay back what they destroyed or stole in India up to its independence in 1947, the bill would be in tens of trillions USD.

It is my prayer, that the Nation of India will understand the difference between the antichrists among us, and a Jew called Yeshua. That the Indians will be given a chance to repent, and be baptized. May they be found in the Kingdom of Heaven. Amen.

Pope worked for united European Catholic Kingdom
June 21, 2012


His pontificate Pope John Paul II has consistently preached his vision of a Christian Europe stretching from the Atlantic coast to the Ural Mountains.




Ronald Reagen shared the visions of the Vatican. The US President opened an Embassy at the "Holy See".

This is the message from the US Embassy in the Vatican to the State Department in Washington.

The cable has been published by Wikileaks.


2002-01-02 16:22

PAGE 02 VATICA 00024 021816Z
¶1. POPE JOHN PAUL II HAS “BLESSED” THE ARRIVAL OF THE EURO CURRENCY CALLING IT AN HISTORIC STEP. IN A JANUARY 1 ADDRESS IN VATICAN CITY, THE POPE SAID HE WISHED PEACE AND PROSPERITY ON THE COUNTRIES OF THE EUROPEAN UNION. HE SAID, “I HOPE THAT IT (THE EURO) PROMOTES THE COMPLETE DEVELOPMENT OF THE CITIZENS OF THE VARIOUS COUNTRIES.”

¶3. COMMENT:

THE INTRODUCTION OF THE EURO IS ACTIVELY SUPPORTED BY THE VATICAN BUT FOR POLITICAL RATHER THAN ECONOMIC REASONS. THE VATICAN’S FINANCE MINISTER, CARDINAL SERGIO SEBASTIANI HAS PREVIOUSLY SAID THAT THE EURO CAN BE SEEN AS A KIND OF GUIDING STAR FOR EUROPE “SO THAT IT CAN OVERCOME THE BARRIERS OF PAST DIVISIONS AND BECOME A
STIMULUS FOR GREATER UNITY AMONG THE NATIONS.”

THROUGHOUT HIS PONTIFICATE POPE JOHN PAUL II HAS CONSISTENTLY PREACHED HIS VISION OF A CHRISTIAN EUROPE STRETCHING FROM THE ATLANTIC COAST TO THE URAL MOUNTAINS. HE IS LIKELY TO REGARD THE INTRODUCTION OF EURO NOTES AND COINS AS ANOTHER UNCLASSIFIED

Source: Wikileaks

My comment:

To claim that the final anti-Christ will rule over a “United Europe” from Portugal to beyond Moscow, is not science fiction. The Bible explains that the last wicked king will rule over the whole World.

The Pope is not at all promoting Christianity, but a political and military set of rule. He wants to become the religious head over the whole Europe.

Again Wikileaks are exposing what the European elite have agreed on in secret summits. The Pope will soon be branded as the ultimate man of peace, and NATO as his “peace partner”,

At the end of the road, they will all see Jerusalem, coming to “liberate” her from the “horrible” Zionist Jews.

The battle of Armageddon will be an ugly display of the wickedness of men, who were misled by the Pope, to become the enemies of God of the Bible.

Ready to walk into the final trap of “special regime” in Jerusalem
June 23, 2012


Ehud Barak and Mahmoud Abbas has agreed to let the Old city of Jerusalem be taken over by a “special regime”.




The Israeli leadership seems to walk right into the final trap. The stage for the final anti-Messiah is about to be set up in Jerusalem.

The Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak offered the PA government East Jerusalem already in 1997. Before He left for “peace talk” in Jerusalem, Barak held secret talks with chairman Mahmoud Abbas.

To the Israeli Daily “Haaretz”, Barak disclosed that the government of Israel is willing to divide Jerusalem.

“As for the “Jerusalem problem” the western side of the city plus “12 Jewish neighborhoods that are home to 200,000 residents will be ours. The neighborhoods in which nearly 250,000 Arabs are living “will be theirs.”, explained Barak.

In regards to the Old city, Barak envisions a “special regime” with “agreed-upon arrangements” to administer the Old City, the Mount of Olives and the City of David.

The concept is similar to one raised in the past by the administration of former U.S. President Bill Clinton, who recommended the area, which he referred to as the “Holy Basin,” be internationalized under a “special regime.”



Prior to his re-election as Israel’s prime minister nearly two years ago, Binyamin Netanyahu warned a gathering at the Jerusalem Conference in January 2009 that leftist politicians would try to internationalize the holy sites in Jerusalem.

He vowed to fight the move.

“Some politicians are trying to blur the importance of the Temple Mount to the Jewish People by referring to it as the ‘Holy Basin’,” he told the crowd at the time. “We, as Jews, know who built the Temple Mount.”

Netanyahu promised the packed hall, “We have demonstrated in the past, and will continue to demonstrate our commitment to a complete, undivided Jerusalem… Everyone knows what will happen if we were to leave those areas and divide Jerusalem. Someone will enter – and that someone will be Hamas.”

Source: Israeli Daily Haaretz

My comment:

I have earlier published articles about the “special regime” in Jerusalem, that will be bring the final anti-Messiah into the “Holy basin”.

Link to the article about the Old city of Jerusalem initiative.

Martin Luther called the Pope in Rome for an anti-Messiah. I agree with him.

I have also published an article about the shift of the anti-Messiah’s chair in Rome, to be shifted to Jerusalem.

Read the article behind this link.

Now it looks like the leaders of the Jewish people is about to walk into the trap, that the devil’ s children has set up.

Netanyahu made Ulpana residents leave peacefully
June 22, 2012


The owners of five houses in Ulpana neighborhood have agreed to leave voluntarily.




Benjamin Netanyahu made Jewish settlers give up their homes without a fight.

An Israeli government committee approved a compromise agreement with the families of the Ulpana neighborhood under which they would leave voluntarily.

Under the agreement approved Wednesday, the five buildings in the outlying neighborhood in the West Bank settlement of Beit El that were found to be built on privately owned Arab Palestinian land will be moved. Until the move is completed, the 30 families being evacuated will live in mobile homes, starting next week. Israel’s Supreme Court will be asked to allow more time for the buildings to be moved rather than razed.

In addition, 300 new apartments will be built on an evacuated Border Police base that will be annexed to Beit El.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu reportedly stressed that the agreement is not a precedent for future evacuations of West Bank outposts.

“At the outset, we set two goals: upholding the law and strengthening the settlement movement. This outline meets both of these,” Netanyahu said in a statement issued from his office.

Source: JPA

My comment:

Benjamin Netanyahu has most likely won a political victory. But what does God of the Bible think about the acts of Jerusalem?

If the Supreme Court of Israel decided that all Jews will have to leave Judea and Samaria, what will Benjamin Netanyahu do?

Shall the Jewish people be guided by so-called International law, or are every Jew called to obey the Word of God?


Luke 1:33
“and he will reign over the house of Jacob forever; his kingdom will never end.”

Let us pray for Benjamin Netanyahu. That He will submit to the Scriptures, and that Yeshua the Messiah will appear in his life. Amen.

The US dominance in the Middle East is over
June 22, 2012


“American era of dominating the Middle East peace process is ending”.




Hillary Clinton still gives big smiles and bold statements. But Richard Haass expose that the show is about to end.

These are the words of Richard Haass. He is a former director of policy planning at the U.S. State Department.

Speaking on the possible effect that recent upheavals in the region could have on the peace process, Hass, said that the U.S. will no longer have such a big part in future diplomatic developments.

”The issues of Iran and Arab upheavals will dominate the Middle East agenda, and the peace process with Israel will be a less dominant aspect of U.S. Middle East policy,” Haass said

The former U.S. official added that the “American era of dominating the Middle East peace process is ending. More responsibility will fall on the shoulders of Israelis and Palestinians themselves.”

Referring to upcoming U.S. presidential elections, Haass said that what “happens in the Middle East, short of crisis with Iran, will have little to no impact on election.”

“Regardless of who wins in November, the U.S. is done with Iraq, and drawdown in Afghanistan will continue. The pace could depend on who is president,” he said, adding: “Domestic issues will dominate next presidency, no matter who wins, says Haass.”

Source: Israeli daily Haaretz

My comment:

The US President has already told the Congress, that the US defense forces in the future will be focused on tasks in the Pacific.

This makes sense for all generals and navy commanders. It was Japan who attacked the US in December 1941. Not Iran.

Today, it is China who challenge the US supremacy on the seven seas. Only China is capable of disrupting American foreign policy.

In regards to the Middle East, the US will be forced to enter into peace treaties with Iraq, Iran and Afghanistan.

The US tax payers can simply not keep on paying the bills of the Arabs and Persians. The US official debates have crossed 14 trillion USD. If the costs of being the self-styled Global police is not cut dramatically, the US will simply go bankrupt.

The same rule that applies to the World, also applies to Washington. ” If you cant beat evil people, join them”. The US will eventually supply and support Islam, and make peace with the enemies of truth. The Global One World Government is emerging.

History Repeating Itself, Repetitively

Late in the evening of March 4, 1975, members of a PLO terror group landed on the beach at Tel Aviv and made their way to the Savoy Hotel, where they took hostages.

The siege lasted until the next day. The usual demands were issued: the release of other terrorists from prison; with no deal, the hostages would be executed.

As they have so many times, members of Israel’s elite counter-terrorism unit, Sayaret Matkal, stormed the hotel the next morning. In the ensuing firefight, seven of eight terrorists were killed. Eight hostages were killed, along with three Israeli troops. To this day, the Savoy is a bitter pill for Israel to swallow.

Eventually, after the spectacular rescue mission at Entebbe a year later, and after the cold peace with Egypt, and the Lebanon War of 1982, followed by the so-called Intifada, the debacle known as Oslo was hatched. By now, most of us know that the infamous Oslo Accords aimed to bring peace in the Arab-Israeli conflict.

Sadly, our diplomats and political leaders—almost all of whom are not Bible-believers—have put the squeeze on Israel for 20 years. The reasoning goes that if we can only understand the root cause of terror, we can eradicate it. In other words, justice for all people will achieve peace.

Somebody should tell that to Muslims.

The folly of Oslo and subsequent failed strategies is that most do not grasp what Islam is, a war religion. It is an ideology bent on conquering the infidels—anyone who is not Muslim.

This is painfully, easily documented. The cause-and-effect of Islam is as plain as the nose on one’s face. Yet our leadership is willfully ignorant of this fact.

Two events this week are tragic reminders that the policies of “peace” that have exhausted all of us are total failures. According the a Reuters story earlier this week:

“KABUL (Reuters) - Elite Afghan police backed by NATO forces ended a 12-hour siege on Friday at a popular lakeside hotel outside Kabul, leaving at least 20 dead after Taliban gunmen stormed the lakeside building, bursting into a party and seizing dozens of hostages.

The night-time assault on the hotel with rocket-propelled grenades, suicide vests and machine guns again proved how potent the Islamist insurgency remains after a decade of war.”

At least a dozen civilians, two hotel guards, and a policeman were killed in the firefight. Five terrorists were killed.

(Get this: besides watching their hostages closely, the Taliban terrorists also searched for “illegal” stocks of wine. If you have wondered what Sharia law is, there’s your answer. Islam in its purist form is a totalitarian nightmare, suffocating any form of freedom of thought.)

An example of how deluded the political global leadership is came from the president of Afghanistan, Hamid Karzai, who rationalized that because the terrorists targeted civilians and not soldiers, it exposed the whole affair as “a sign of defeat for the enemies of Afghanistan.”

This is routine rhetoric for political leaders, but I don’t think this kind of hackneyed propaganda works anymore.

The attack wasn’t a sign of defeat. It was a sign that the Taliban is growing stronger. Why not attack them and destroy them completely, rather than whisper “signs of defeat” and then run back into your compound?

Has any Western country actually tried to win a war in the last 67 years? The Israelis seem to be the only ones to actually try, and their record is pretty good.

Israel is losing the propaganda war, of course, and we need to be upfront about that.

The second event this week to grab my attention was the barrage of rockets from Hamas in Gaza. More than 130 landed in Israel, and here was the kicker: nary a peep from the media.

I did read quite a lot about the tiny fire allegedly set at a West Bank mosque, by Israeli citizens (the world calls them, contemptuously, “settlers” . This tracked on Yahoo News! and others all day Wednesday. I found out about the huge story of the rocket attacks via Twitter and the IDF spokesman.

Doesn’t that say a lot?

More specifically, the Christian Palestinianists in America (folks like Brian McLaren, Lynne Hybels, Jim Wallis, Shane Claiborne, and others) said not one word about the rocket attacks. They do take every—and I mean, every—opportunity to bash Israel.

Why the silence? Can anybody justify it?

Why do those who purport to be humanitarians and social justice advocates go silent when Jews are being attacked and murdered? I call on the aforementioned Christian Palestinianists to answer and explain why they engage in disproportionate condemnations of Israel…while the Palestinians continue to shoot, stab, bomb, and stone Jews.

This collective moral failure is grotesque, outrageous, and profoundly shameful. The Almighty has specifically said in His Word that He will deal harshly with the nations, specifically because they mistreated the Jews.

Those of you who find it repulsive that the Christian Palestinianists pile-on Israel while peddling PLO propaganda have a right to hear from them: why the silence? It is silence in the face of the real root of terror that has brought us to this global threat from jihad.

I invite you to check-out the following blogs this week:

www.brianmclaren.net

www.lynnehybels.blogspot.com

www.sojo.net

www.thesimpleway.org/shane/

Check and see how they comment about Israel. Then ask them the above. The propaganda war against Israel that Christian Palestinianists aid cannot go unanswered.

For many, the Savoy Hotel attack is still fresh. For the rest of the world, it never happened.

Some things never change.

Alive and Well

Sometimes, especially in my own writings, one can get the impression that all is doom and gloom. The engulfing of the culture by Emergent philosophy is a serious problem. Young “millennials” are being targeted to give their allegiance to the Palestinians. Israel continues to be squeezed from every side.

But I’m attending the Lamb & Lion Annual Bible Conference this weekend, north of Dallas, and the theme is “Israel in the End Times.” What a terrific gathering!

I arrived last night just in time to hear David Reagan give a rousing opening address, as he highlighted the prophecies fulfilled by the modern state of Israel. Dave is a liberal theologian’s worst nightmare, and represents much of the good that is going on among pro Israel supporters. And each speaker here is terrific: Jeff Seif, Bill Koenig, Mark Hitchcock, Gary Frazier, and Arnold Fruchtenbam.

An additional delight has been the music of Jack Hollingsworth and Ted Pearce, who prove that there are brilliant alternatives to the sludge played at the “evangelical” conferences targeting millennials.

You would do yourself a favor by checking out www.lamblion.com, and avail yourself of the resources. Dave’s “A Prophetic Manifesto” pamphlet made available at this conference is sobering, but needed. He discusses the reasons we have biblical ignorance in this country, and that is has led to the “un-doing of doctrine.” A brilliant observation.

If there’s one thing the Emergents hate—besides Israel—it’s doctrine. They tell us it isn’t necessary, that the point is to “experience” God. The result is that, as Dave says, “the term evangelical has lost its meaning.”

I appreciated Dave mentioning in his address last night the astonishing Israeli hostage rescue at Entebbe. The anniversary of the raid is this week (July 4), and is but one example of the amazing protection God is bringing His people even today.

At the moment, I am listening to the great Bill Koenig (Koenig’s International News). As the only White House correspondent who is pro Israel, Bill is in a key position. He is also a terrific speaker. He is making some fascinating points, discussing the scourge of Replacement Theology.

Essentially, Bill is saying that it’s as if in the evangelical community, we are on different planets—so difficult is it to reach people with the reality of Israel’s significance.

Bill said that a very small percentage of the Church gets Israel. He estimates that 65 percent of the Church is into Replacement Theology. Staggering!

He has been able to place copies of his book, Eye to Eye, with Rahm Emmanuel, George W. Bush, David Axelrod, George Mitchell and…Jimmy Carter!

Lamb & Lion’s staff did a superb job in making this conference a rousing success for the attendees. It was perhaps the best-organized conference I’ve ever attended, and the Saturday night banquet was wonderful.

The reality is this: fewer pastors are teaching Bible prophecy; the Emergents are far down the road in their hijacking of churches; Church-Growth proponents like Rick Warren continue to marginalize Bible prophecy teaching.

However…

When articulate spokesmen like Dave Reagan, Mark Hitchcock, Gary Frazier, Joel Rosenberg, and several others continue to speak and research and write, we can rest easy that we are just where we’re supposed to be. Add to that new voices like Brian Thomas of Blessings to Israel Ministries (www.blessingstoisrael.com) and I see that teaching about Israel and prophecy is still very much alive.

If Dave Reagan’s powerhouse final address at the conference, in which he put his shoulder into the subject of Replacement Theology, is any indication, Israel still has friends in high places.

When Non-Violence Becomes Violent

This week, the UN—that pacifist bridge club on the Hudson—co-sponsored an international anti-drug conference in Tehran (of all places). Predictably, the Iranians used it for another opportunity to blame Israel for drug trafficking.

The Bible calls this “bearing false witness.”

Reuters reported that 10 Western diplomats sat and listened to Iranian Vice President Mohammad-Reza Rahimi blame the Jewish state for the global drug trade. Rahimi made the following points, alleged by his superiors:

•The Talmud teaches Jews how to destroy non-Jews

•As “proof,” of the Zionist drug plot, no “Zionist” was addicted to drugs, according to Rahimi. Anywhere. He offered to pay if anyone could find even a single Jewish drug addict anywhere in the world.

•Doctors sometimes kill black babies, on the order of the Zionists.

This madness is difficult to deal with, to say the least. With all the legitimate problems in the world, the Iranians focus on a psychopathic cocktail of anti-semitism in order to blame Jews for every ill in the world.

Added to this mixture is news this week that Yasser Arafat might have been poisoned—by the Jews, of course—and his body might be exhumed. Proponents of this view conveniently forget that Israel could have killed the terrorist a dozen times over in the years before Oslo, but didn’t.

Arafat, vaguely resembling a shaven Dopey when he emerged in France for medical treatment near the end of his life, cultivated his cherubic, Seven Dwarfs persona for the West, at the same time he plotted to murder Jews around the world. Yet Israel is blamed.

(A couple books come to mind that shed light on the diabolical attempts to libel and slander the Jews: License to Murder—The Enduring Threat of the Protocols of the Elders of Zion, and Nations United—How the United Nations Undermines Israel and the West. I urge you to read these books in order to understand the roots of Jew-hatred.)

An interesting backdrop for this Blame Israel First mentality is playing-out this week at the national assembly for the Presbyterian Church (USA), where, by a narrow 333-331 margin, “divestment” was voted down. This initiative calls for entities to pull investments from companies that do business with Israel. In this case, Caterpiller, HP, and Motorola.

This slim margin of victory is to be celebrated (I have several mainline friends who have done exhaustive work to combat divestment; they are to be commended). There are further battles to fight, including motions to condemn the “settlements,” and to boycott goods from the territories.

This vote comes on the heels of a somewhat surprising decision at the May gathering of the United Methodist Church, as reported in the Jerusalem Post:

“The general conference of the United Methodist Church voted not to divest from three companies that trade with Israel.

“Two-thirds of the approximately 1,000 delegates to the conference voted Wednesday in Tampa, Fla., against a motion to divest from Caterpillar, Motorola Solutions and Hewlett-Packard.

“The conference passed motions opposing Jewish settlements in the West Bank, recommending the boycott of products manufactured in settlements, and investment in the Palestinian economy.”

Although there are several reasons for these slight wins, I believe they also arise from pragmatism and practicality. Proponents of divestment, leftists of various stripes, recognize that the extreme leftist mentality eventually wears thin with the wider audience, so new strategies must be developed. This is not so different from the shift in Arab strategies after the shattering defeats at the hands of the IDF: Arafat was schooled by his Marxist handlers to become a “revolutionary” fighting for statehood for a disenfranchised people, rather than an upfront terrorist. He could dispatch his killers, but would shrink from overt attacks himself.

Arafat even ingratiated himself with certain mainline church officials as far back as the 90’s.

An interesting study was done by the Institute on Religion and Democracy, which found that between 2000 and 2003, 37 percent of the statements made by mainline officials concerning human rights abuses focused on Israel! Notice this key phrase:

“No other country came in for such frequent criticism, though the US was a close second at 32%. China, North Korea and Saudi Arabia were not critiqued at all.”

These people are turning truth on its head.

Yet they are taking a play from the PLO playbook, insofar as they are refining their attacks on Israel. I see Western leftists shifting their confrontational strategies to more subtle attempts to weaken Israel. They are now preaching a concept called “non-violence,” which aims to achieve Palestinian goals via “non-violent” methods.

This means, at best, that they work for a so-called bi-national state, as opposed to either a Jewish state or a Palestinian Arab state. This stands in some contrast to the blatant former efforts by the PLO to liquidate Israel straight-up. The bi-national agenda is liquidation by other means.

“Non-violent” means.

Dexter van Zile, whom I believe to be the premier Christian researcher in this arena, has written a fascinating article on Sami Awad, the Bethlehem native who is currently networking heavily among American evangelicals:

http://www.newenglishreview.org/custpage.cfm/frm/117818/sec_id/117818

It’s quite a fascinating look at the agenda of the man who has become a friend of Lynne Hybels, Mart Green, and Gary Burge—each a highly influential networker within the American evangelical community. The Palestinians, you see, have used connections with their Christian Palestinianist friends to infiltrate the American Church.

Infiltrated.

It’s already happened.

The left of course has always loved totalitarian regimes (the Palestinian Authority/PLO is one), but until recently, this was the playground of scholars, theologians, the media, and political influencers. Only fairly recently has it spread into the bloodstream of the evangelical community.

Just after World War I, the ACLU was formed by the likes of Roger Baldwin, an atheist, with Harry F. Ward serving as the group’s first chairman. Ward was a Methodist minister who warmly supported Soviet Communism. In his book, Dupes, Paul Kengor says of Ward:

“Put simply, the Reverend Ward may well have been the single greatest sucker in the entire history of the American Religious Left.”

He had plenty of company, and I find it fascinating that the Palestinians are following the same model taught by the Soviets decades ago: infiltrate and destroy from within.

The Soviets used a variety of methods to accomplish their goal of bringing-down America, including newspapermen like Frank Marshall Davis, who wrote race-baiting stuff (and, to show his versatility, a porn novel) and gained support for the Communist Party USA from prominent left-wing American pastors, such as Walter Russell Bowie.

Interestingly, the race-baiting whipped up by the Soviets is quite similar to that being pushed today by the current American president and his friends, who specifically embrace Black Liberation Theology.

BLT is a concept by which other “oppressed groups” (hint: Palestinians) aim to throw off the shackles of their slave-masters (Israel) and step into the light of freedom. And what did the Civil Rights movement preach?

Non-violence.

When Arafat and his cronies realized that body parts shown on the evening news were bad for their image, they began to develop the concept of Palestinian non-violence. That is what is being preached in evangelical churches across America right now. The Palestinians are following the identical model of the Leninists a couple generations ago, and not only are they good at it, they are winning.

That’s right, I said, winning.

The situation is growing dire, I believe. A generation ago, these were things only discussed in seminaries, but now those seminarians have grown up and are in turn mentoring other seminarians.

(By the way, Rick Warren, no friend of Israel or her Christian Zionist friends, has a doctorate from the thoroughly liberal Fuller Theological Seminary. “Pastor Rick” is also mentor to untold numbers of young evangelical leaders, and he currently has 656, 851 followers on Twitter, most of whom eagerly re-tweet his messages—whether they be birthday greetings to aging rockstars, or suggestions to “unfollow” the “twits” who dare to criticize him. Pastor Rick’s Saddleback Church is a member of the Southern Baptist Convention.)

Just sayin’.

In his (in)famous 1993 book, The Scandal of the Evangelical Mind, Mark Noll (then professor at Wheaton, now at Notre Dame) barely concealed his contempt for Bible-believing Christians, many of whom support Israel. He used his own propaganda techniques to denigrate this community.

Citing Dwight Wilson’s 1977 book, Armageddon Now!, Noll wrote that Wilson had “expertly summarized a dismal tale,” in which the historian took to task Bible prophecy proponents who embrace “the supposed restoration of Israel.”

Supposed restoration!

My friends, when acclaimed historians deny history, you know the jig is up.

This type of revisionism is being used to great effect by Christian Palestinianists. It is another weapon in their non-violence arsenal, which grows more deadly by the day.

Bearing False Witness

Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbour. (Exodus 20:16)

There are two definitions of words that you should commit to memory.

Misinformation is the spreading of untruths, unintentionally. Disinformation is the spread of untruths, intentionally. In other words, the latter is misinformation, Soviet-style. The practice of spreading lies about an individual or an entity with the intent to cause harm is a scourge in our world today. Israel gets a disproportionate amount.

One often hears about “the occupation.” This refers to that territory the world calls the West Bank. Bible-believers and other Zionists call it Judea and Samaria.

The region is the heartland of Israel, and is loaded with historical meaning. Kings have fought there, and most of the great biblical figures lived there at one time or another. For centuries, it was largely uninhabited, although both Arabs and Jews have lived there since time immemorial, as they say.

Until 1917, it was part of the Ottoman Empire. Then, the British took control before knocking the dust off their sandals 30 years later and leaving it to Jews and Arabs to fight it out. After Israel’s War of Independence, which ended in 1949, Jordan controlled what King Hussein would come to call the West Bank.

In the 1967 Six Day War—which Israel-haters call a land grab, and Israel supporters remember as both a fight for survival and a miracle—the vaunted IDF gained a wide swath of territory, including the biblical heartland. Ever since, the international community has scorned Israel for holding the territory. But Ariel Sharon once told me that the nation can’t be conquered if the IDF controls the ground.

It is a very telling viewpoint and in fact, the wily old general was right. The mountainous terrain—the hills that dot the landscape, at sharp angles—is relatively easy to defend. It is almost impossible to take.

When the Israel-haters on the battlefield, the Arabs, realized military action was a non-starter, they turned their attention to “diplomacy” and propaganda. That is where we are today. They also utilize the Israel-hating bent found in many Westerners, including of course those in the American Evangelical Church.

I want to point out two errors that these self-described evangelicals make in this propaganda war. Some know they are lying; others simply spread misinformation.

The first involves the security fence or, as the Israel-haters call it, “the Wall.” Many are now taking their cues from the Sunday school teacher, Jimmy Carter, and call it an “apartheid wall.” They are bearing false witness against the Jewish state and will one day answer the Almighty for their lies.

The fence was put up in the wake of the homicide bombings that have claimed so many Jewish lives. Let’s be clear: many Israel-haters consider Jews to be scum, so they don’t truly bemoan the deaths of innocents, if they are Israelis. They talk about a commitment to Israel’s security, but that’s a lie.

Now, there are many sincere Christians (dupes) who are being used by the PLO/PA to undermine and attempt to destroy Israel. These people feel they are human rights activists.

But they are being misled on a colossal scale.

More than 90 percent of the security fence is barbed wire. Only a small percentage around certain Arab and Israeli towns is a concrete barrier.

Few people know that.

The vast majority of Americans will never visit Israel, so they rely on someone else to tell them what’s up. The “apartheid wall” (so-named to link Israel to the South African regime that oppressed blacks) in fact only encircles Arab dwellings here and there.

A supremely interesting plot point here is the fact that the Christian Palestinianists in America who are being schooled by folks like Sami Awad will tell you that Bethlehem has become a “prison” because the fence has completely encircled it.

That is false.

The security fence does not go all the way around the town (a thoroughly Jewish area, especially from biblical times, but in the 90s control was given to the PLO). I asked that question on the Facebook page for “Little Town of Bethlehem,” the anti-Israel propaganda film produced by evangelical businessman Mart Green’s EGM Films.

The person who maintains the site answered (in reference to my question: “Does the security fence completely encircle Bethlehem?” that he/she didn’t know.

I no longer see my comment on that FB page; I’m sure it’s been taken down because it doesn’t fit the Palestinian narrative.

What if your life story was largely based on lies? What if the so-called Palestinian narrative is disinformation?

A second interesting question is the settlement of Judea and Samaria by Jews. One can fairly hear critics hiss when they say, “sssettlements,” and this of course is a linchpin in the narrative about the “occupation.”

Yet consider these facts:

Most of it is uninhabited. Only 10 percent has been settled (and that includes Arab towns like Ramallah and Nablus). Ninety percent is empty!

Further, only three percent of the built-up sections is Jewish!

You don’t hear that on the news, do you? You especially don’t hear it from the American Christian Palestinianists, who—I can tell you from personal experience—“turtle-up” when asked direct questions that don’t fit the Palestinian narrative.

One of the problems with embracing the Palestinian narrative, which is really, largely Soviet propaganda going way back, is that it causes people to make wrong choices.

The American Christian Palestinianists like to say that Christian Zionists affect America foreign policy, due to our Israel advocacy.

How absurd.

Is that why the official American foreign policy affirms the creation of a new Arab terror state (Palestine) alongside Israel? Is that why American presidents sit on their hands while PA leaders deny Jewish history in the Holy Land? Is that why political leaders in Washington maintain intense pressure on Israel to not only cede half of Jerusalem, but refuse to place an embassy there? Prediction: if the day comes when we see a state of Palestine come into existence, American diplomats will trip over themselves to cut the ribbon at their embassy in east Jerusalem.

Let me explain to you how American foreign policy is affected by Christian and Jewish Zionists.

In 2011, the Global Counterterrorism Forum was formed under the leadership of the United States, to “provide a unique platform for senior [counterterrorism] policymakers and experts from key partners in different regions to share key insights and best practices.”



That’s okay, I guess. Here’s what’s not okay. The countries making up this elite “counterterrorism” forum include:



Algeria, Australia, Canada, China, Colombia, Denmark, Egypt, European Union, France, Germany, India, Indonesia, Italy, Japan, Jordan, Morocco, The Netherlands, New Zealand, Nigeria, Pakistan, Qatar, Russia, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, Spain, Switzerland, Turkey, United Arab Emirates, United Kingdom, United States.

What? Seriously? Is this a joke? Are we on Candid Camera?

Russia, and Arab states are members of this forum? Have we gone mad?

Yes, we have. The world is insane. Oh, and the country missing from this panel of elites?

Israel.

The whole sad affair surrounding the embrace of the Palestinian narrative/disinformation affects not only foreign policy, but has hijacked the Church.

Recently, at York, England, the Church of England voted “overwhelmingly” to strengthen ties with something called the Ecumenical Accompaniment Program in Palestine and Israel[*].

*Nice they included the country that actually exists in that region.

The EAPPI is into the whole “BDS” movement: boycott, divestment, and sanctions against Israel. Notice this from the EAPPI website:

“We have a deep concern for the safety and dignity for all those we work with, and provide protective presence wherever possible. However, the protection we provide is by presence alone and as such is limited – we recognise that we cannot protect civilians from suicide bombings, rockets or military operations because of the nature of such acts.”

Some of the “sending organizations” working with EAPPI include:

Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, United Methodist Church, Presbyterian Church USA, United Church of Christ, Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), Maryknoll Missioners, Episcopal Church, Church World Service, The National Council of the Churches of Christ in the USA.


So, a key lie in the disinformation campaign aimed at bringing-down Israel is that Christian and Jewish Zionists control American foreign policy.

I wish we did.

Some of the Christian Palestinianists in America are sincere humanitarians who feel their work advances peace. I’m sorry for them, but at least they come at it from a pure heart.

Others, though, know exactly what they’re doing. They don’t like to answer uncomfortable questions, and they don’t like supporters of Israel at all.

The whole thing is diabolical, and is very much about bearing false witness.

The world embraces lies about Israel. Misinformation and disinformation. Deceiving and being deceived.

God help them.

Jul 23, 2012

At the Summit

I told you last week that I’d report on the Christians United for Israel Summit, held in Washington D.C. It was the first one I’ve attended (CUFI is six years old).

I shall do that, but give my impressions rather than a straight report. Much happened, and it was all good. While at the event, I had a chance to talk to a great many people, including CUFI Executive Director David Brog, scholar Alex Grobman, and brave Palestinian pastor Steven Khoury.

The gathering was an encouragement, since the thousands who attended were treated to outstanding speakers, workshops, and a renewed sense that as the opposition to Israel grows stronger, so do her defenders.

I arrived Sunday and had the pleasure of having dinner with a few folks, including CUFI Eastern Coordinator Victor Styrsky. I can tell you that pro Israel activism is in deluxe hands with people like Victor. The passion, intelligence, and sophistication of the CUFI operation is impressive to see up close. Victor told me that the grassroots organization is growing by leaps and bounds. With that growth, challenges grow, as well.

“We know that Replacement Theology is a serious problem,” he said.

Perhaps the thing that surprised me most was the level of coordination that is rising between evangelicals and Jews. Malcolm Hoenlein, the executive vice chairman of the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish organizations, gave a stunning address. The forcefulness of his message drew wild applause.

“We stand for living Jews and for a living Jewish state!” Hoenlein thundered.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu addressed the gathering via satellite from Jerusalem. He said with obvious genuineness that Israel does not feel alone, with such friends advocating around the globe.

(In a moving and almost ironic coincidence, the CUFI leadership hosted a screening of a new film, “Follow Me,” which chronicles the life of Jonathan Netanyahu, the PM’s older brother, who was killed leading the successful hostage rescue at Entebbe, in 1976. About 600 people attended the screening, and afterwards, during a panel discussion, I was almost taken aback by the outpouring of emotion from those who rose to ask questions and comment. One woman said she was speechless for the first time in her life, and that the film had changed her life. If your church would be interested in hosting a screening, let me know via email and I’ll pass that along to the producers.)

I also had a chance to visit with CUFI executive director David Brog, the classy architect of the group’s advancement to the million-member mark. David is a Palestinian advocate’s nightmare, and he emphasized that Israel advocates would begin “push-back,” rather than tolerate lies and slander about Israel from her enemies.

Another highlight of the week was the chance to sit down and visit with Steven Khoury, a Palestinian Christian pastor from Bethlehem. Steven, who was willing to say that he loves Jews, stands apart from some other Palestinian Christians who peddle the PLO/PA line about Israel. I asked him what we could do to help the Palestinian people, and he asked for prayer, and for folks to check out a new initiative he’s part of: www.bethlehemfreedom.com.

That website will give you an idea of what it’s like to live as a Christian under Muslim rule. Steven also told me that reports that the Palestinian Authority had shut down his church were not accurate. The church still operates.

As I mentioned, cooperation between Jews and Christians continues to grow by leaps and bounds. Alex Grobman, executive director of the America-Israel Friendship League, attended CUFI for the first time. The AIFL is a non-partisan group based in New York, and exists to build friendships between people who share common values and respect for freedom for all people.

“We applaud Reverend John Hagee and his wonderful staff for making this conference such a moving experience,” said Grobman. “What makes CUFI conferences so inspiring are not only the excellent speakers, but the incredibly dedicated people you meet at these events. They have an infectious enthusiasm, a profound love for Israel, and an understanding of the importance of the Jewish state as being in the forefront in the war against terror. They recognize that Jews and Christians are in this fight together for the future of our way of life.

“May God give supporters of CUFI the strength, the wisdom and ability to continue their holy work to preserve our freedoms.”

The Rev. William Harter, a Presbyterian who has been heavily involved in combatting the boycott and divestment campaign in mainline churches, also attended for the first time and came away amazed by the experience:

"The conference provided convincing and detailed information underscoring the necessity of understanding the Israeli/Palestinian struggle as part of the ongoing search for authentic pluralism on the part of minority peoples---Jewish, Christian, Muslim and others---in the larger Middle East as well as significant portions of Africa and Asia.

“The conflict between authoritarian and triumphalist world-views and those who advocate human and civil rights including the rights of women and children was articulated very well."

Bill is a dear friend of mine, and he is also a Christian director with AIFL. He’s hosted delegations to Israel via “The League,” and works closely with chairman Ken Bialkin, and Grobman. What makes Bill’s work with the AIFL important in the context of attending the CUFI Summit is that it brings a mainline church perspective together with CUFI’s base of evangelical support.

I was most excited about this. When you have a sophisticated group like AIFL—with its advocacy for Israel headed by an urbane fellow like Bialkin—linking arms with veteran Christian Israel advocates like Bill…I think this represents a key element in CUFI’s rise to prominence. Truly, the organization now is represented in all denominations, and the close cooperation between these disparate groups bodes well for Israel.

All in all, the Christians United for Israel “Washington Summit” was a smashing success, and I already greatly look forward to next year. I invite you to go to www.cufi.org to find out more.

The Sword of Damocles



From Greek legend we learn of the so-called “Sword of Damocles,” a story about a member of the court of Dionysius II. The courtier, Damocles, was a typical sycophant and often remarked to the king how majestic he was, and how it must be amazing to wield such power.

One day, Dionysius allowed Damocles to switch places with him for a day, in order to have the experience. The king, however, arranged for a sword to hang over Damocles’ head, held in place by the single hair of a horse’s tail. The point of course was that yes, power might have a certain magnificence and allure, but in the end, one cannot find happiness under the constant threat of destruction.

Thus the Sword of Damocles has often been invoked to describe the precarious nature of power among rulers and kingdoms. On July 12, at a conference in Tehran, Cyber Hezbollah—sophisticated terrorist entities operate in a variety of spheres—dealt with “Syria, the First Line of Resistance.”

According to the Meir Amit Intelligence and Terrorism Information Center:

“Cyber Hezbollah is an organization that was established in the summer of 2011 by supporters of the Iranian regime who operated in cyberspace against the reformist opposition during the riots of 2009. The organization’s first conference was convened in August 2011.

“A memorandum of opinion released by the organization shortly after it was established listed its goals and objectives, which include bringing together regime supporters who are active in cyberspace, organizing courses and training for the activists, holding meetings to acquaint the activists with tactics of cyber warfare, and mobilizing the activists for online activities. Since its establishment, the organization has provided a supportive environment for philosophical and cultural discourse between figures considered close to the radical right wing bloc and regime supporters.”

The situation in Syria is complex, and indicative of a wider complexity with regard to how various countries and terror states in the Middle East interact.

Bible prophecy students have been keen in recent weeks on the idea that Syria’s Bashar Assad, as a last, desperate act, would launch a missile attack on Israel, thus inviting a withering response that would bring Isaiah 17 into fulfillment.

However, I don’t think the coming destruction of Damascus is that simple. While Syria and Egypt launched conventional wars against Israel, the regimes were sane and rational in the sense that they did not want to hasten their own destruction. In this way, the situation was akin to American-Soviet stances during the Cold War.

But with the Middle East now aflame with jihad—thanks in no small part to (intentional?) blunders by Western leaders like Barack Obama—I believe the opportunities for Isaiah 17 are richer in the context of a coming Muslim Brotherhood takeover of Syria.

If Bashar Assad is going to use WMD against Israel, he’d better hurry up. He is closer to ending up like Gaddafi or Mussolini than he is to attacking Israel.

The Iranians have long backed Syria, used as a proxy in the terror war against Israel. Were the Brotherhood to take control in Damascus, Tehran’s ability to manipulate Israel’s northern border would be uncertain. Assad is a puppet of the Iranian mullahs and while they evidently wish to launch a nuclear attack on Israel, I don’t believe Assad is in position to make his own decisions at that level.

Again, from the Meir Amit report:

“Cyber Hezbollah’s ninth conference, held in the presence of Hamed Hassan, the Syrian ambassador to Iran, was dedicated to the current developments in Syria, with its participants expressing the Iranian regime’s continuing support for President Bashar Assad and his government.

“Speaking at the conference, Hojjat-ol-Eslam Mohammad Hassan Akhtari, Iran’s former ambassador in Damascus and chairman of the international Ahlulbayt Association, addressed the developments in the Arab world, saying that the enemies of Islam are concerned about the ‘Islamic awakening’ in the region and are attempting to hold back the progress of the Islamic movements in various ways, which include hitting the front of Islamic resistance against Israel, whose center is in Syria.”

Akhtari listed several reasons why he feels the situation in Syria is different than other uprisings over the past year, and it’s clear that he wants Assad to remain in power. The Iranians, like all clans, are at odds with various other terrorist/jihadist clans in the Middle East. Akhtari feels that Al-Qaeda operatives working against the Syrian regime have done little to help Hezbollah or Syria against Israel.

These are tactical differences.

The Iranians feel that the Syrian situation represents a form of the Sword of Damocles doctrine, in that if the West were to act directly against Assad, a “retaliatory blow with a sword whose edges are Syria and the Islamic resistance in Palestine and Lebanon” would commence. The jihadists loathe American military might, and relish the idea that the U.S.-led West would never find contentment with the constant threat of destruction in place.

(Notice too the use of the word “resistance.” This is propaganda, since the jihadists opposing freedom and the West are not technically resisting; they are advancing with an offensive war whose ultimate goal is world domination. Yet the word “resistance” seeps into the gullible Western mind, and too many view these killers as freedom fighters.)

In short, while all these jihadists—from the Iranian mullahs to the Wahhabists in Egypt—have the goal of Israel’s destruction, I do not feel Assad (more of a secular strongman than religious martyr) will be the triggerman. Much more likely Isaiah 17 will find its fulfillment in a Muslim Brotherhood-led Syria, which will follow its religiously motivated imperative to strike Israel.

Jew-hate main reason for Arabs endless poverty
August 2, 2012


One reason Arab Palestinian economic growth has been so disastrously slow is the terror war that Yasser Arafat launched against Israel in 2000




A MBA holder from a Roman Catholic University burn Jewish products on the mountains of Zion.

The Second Intifada shattered Israeli hopes for peaceful concert with a new neighboring country, and led to an economic estrangement that proved horribly costly to Arabs, claimed to be “Palestinians”.

Israelis stopped employing these Arabs workers and stopped buying “Palestinian” goods. Transit and trade between the two became difficult and painful.

And whose fault was it?

Israel, which agreed in principle to a deal at Camp David in 2000 granting Palestinians a state with sovereign dominion over nearly 94 per cent of the West Bank?

No, it was exclusively the doing of Arafat, who served as a reverse George Washington – rejecting nationhood for violence.

Saeb Erekat blames “occupation” for Palestinian poverty. But the PA has dominion over almost all of the West Bank and Hamas has control over all of Gaza, so the word “occupation” is all but meaningless.

Source: The New York Post

My comment:

You will simply be a liar, if you claim that the same Jew-hate that ran in Hitlers mind, is not present in the so-called “moderate Islam”.

The best proof there is, is the picture of Salam Fayyad acting like a full blown Nazi, burning Israeli products on January 5th 2010.

Fayyad is not a lesser learned hooligan from an Arab village.

Fayyad is a MBA graduate from St. Edward’s University is a private Roman Catholic institution of higher learning located in Austin, Texas. He is also the present Prime Minister of the self governed PA in Ramallah.

We saw similar fires in Berlin in the years 1936 to 1938.

God of the Bible promised to curse all who curse the Jewish people. God can be trusted.


Genesis 12:3
I will bless those who bless you, and whoever curses you I will curse; and all peoples on earth will be blessed through you.”

Say no more. I rest my case.

Israel must overcome CIA-pressure on its military


Netanyahu recalls Begin’s decision to bomb Iraq reactor despite opposition from Mossad, military intelligence heads.




Benjamin Netanyahu is feeling the heat also from the Obama lead CIA, trying to bribe the military leadership of Israel.

The decision whether to attack Iran will be taken by the country’s elected political leadership, and not by the defense and security establishment,.

This was the message from Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu said in a number of television interviews Tuesday.

Netanyahu’s comments followed a front page headline in Tuesday’s Yediot Aharonot saying that the US administration believes Israel’s top military and intelligence brass – including IDF Chief of Staff Lt.-Gen. Benny Gantz, Air Force Commander Maj.- Gen. Amir Eshel, Head of Military Intelligence Maj.- Gen. Aviv Kochavi, Mossad head Tamir Pardo, and Shin Bet (Israel Security Agency) head Yoram Cohen – are all opposed to an Israeli attack without US backing.

Source: Source: The Jerusalem Post

My comment:

The CIA is active inside Israel, also.

If CIA-head Barack Hussein Obama can bribe the Mossad, Washington might be able to entice the Israelis military to disobey the political leadership.

This was the basic doctrine behind the US lead cue in Iran in 1953. CIA also set in several puppets in banana republics in Latin and South America in the 1960 and 1970-ties.

What is the CIA major doctrine?


If you do not do what Washington say, Washington have the right to place on of its own as a leader of your nation.

For all who feel the US lead war in Libya was justified by a popular vote or democratic tools, please send me a link who prove this.

In a similar way, all democratic institutions will be brushed aside when the last and final war on Israel will be launched.

What will it take Obama to bribe and corrupt the Mossad?

Let me underline, that I have the deepest respect for the military leadership in Israel. They are doing a great lob. But all men can fall.

Every Jew who have no Zionist conviction in his heat, have a price in US dollar. There have always been some corrupt Jews working for the despots who harm the Jewish people.

“Fierce and Desperate”

And they that shall be of thee shall build the old waste places: thou shalt raise up the foundations of many generations; and thou shalt be called, The repairer of the breach, The restorer of paths to dwell in. (Isaiah 58:12)

A recent item in the Jewish Press is but one more indicator that Israel/Jerusalem is the key puzzle piece in these last days.

The JP’s Yishai Fleisher interviewed Arieh King, director of the Israel Land Fund, and the discussion centered on the spiritual center of the universe, Jerusalem.

Interestingly, King and his friends are focused on reclaiming “stolen properties in eastern Jerusalem,” and, even more provocatively, “to expand the borders of the entire metropolis.”

The Palestinians of course oppose this, as do their friends—especially, odiously, those in the mainline and evangelical communities. The United Methodists, for example, have been decrying Israeli sovereignty over Jerusalem at least since Oslo 20 years ago. We also well remember Barack Obama’s chilling quote from last year, in which he felt compelled to say that the international community is getting tired of the status quo in the peace process. That means he and his friends are sick and tired of Israel.

If Zechariah can be believed, this is precisely the scenario required for a climactic battle involving the global community.

Fleisher, whom I’ve met, discussed in the piece an ambush he was the victim of in a narrow street just north of the Old City. When I was there 10 years ago, during the Second Intifada, it was common to see Hamas posters on the streets.

Just around the corner from this area is the so-called Orient House, from which the PLO operated for years. King had this to say:

“There’s no question that once Jews are not there, there is no sovereignty, police are not entering there, this is the basis for anti-Israeli organizations to put their roots …There’s no question, if Jews were living there, things like that would not happen.”

Christians are often not aware that this section of the city is a nest of terror activity, and home to terror operatives. From the Fleisher article:

“King got his start as a security guard in the City of David in 1997. Then most commonly known as Silwan, the area was wrought with strife and was targeted frequently by local Arabs for attacks, despite his position just adjacent to the most significant place in the city, the Old City of Jeruasalem. Born on Kibbutz Alumim, King is one of the ten original residents of Ma’ale Zeitim (Ras-Al-Amud) where he currently resides with his wife and children. He started the Israel Land Fund while trying to recover property on the Mt. of Olives in 2007.

“According to King, the battle for Jerusalem is fierce and ‘desperate.’”

As Hillary Clinton, the UN, the British, and religious leaders grind their teeth in heavy handed efforts to get Israel to stop building Jewish communities in the Land of Israel, King’s group has had some success. Apartments have been built in Beit Orot, and in Shimon HaTzaddik.

“Up until now, King’s focus has been on areas specific to eastern Jerusalem – the Mount of Olives, Shimon HaTzaddik (the burial place of Temple high priest Simon the Just), Beit Hanina, Beit Tzafafa,and Jabil Mukaber, areas he said nobody was talking about 10 years ago.”

Despite assertions that Israeli Jews are stealing Arab land, King makes it clear that his group has actually worked with local Arabs to determine land ownership, even extending back to 1948.

Overall, King’s initiative would extend Israeli sovereignty to the north, and south by the year 2050:

“As part of the plan, Gush Etzion in southern Judea will become a suburb of Jerusalem, as will Maale Adumim and Givat Ze’ev.”

To give you some perspective, the gleaming community of Maale Adumim sits just east of the Old City, and is populated by thousands of Jews. This is a central location involved in the global negotiations to solve the Israeli-Arab conflict. It is a place that folks like Bill Clinton know very, very well. The problem for the globalists is, this suburb and others like it are like a force of nature. It isn’t a few tents here and there that can be uprooted. Read Amos 9:15.

The international community loathes this reality, it really does.

We live in momentous times, my friends. Prophecies are being fulfilled on the ground, literally, day by day. As King says:

“Many ruins in Jerusalem are waiting to be built.”

The Bible explains the destruction of Damascus


The Bible explains that Damascus shall be reduced to rubble. See, and learn that the Bible can be trusted.




The city of Damascus has no future. Jesus will com back to Jerusalem.

It is sad that Muslims slaughters Muslims. But being deceived by a desert demon, what can we expect?

The Bible is crystal clear that before Jesus will be back on Earth, the city of Damascus will cease to be a city. The king of kings will not come back to Damascus. He will come back to the city of the Great Jewish King David, the city of Jerusalem.

Isaiah 17:1
[ An Oracle Against Damascus ] An oracle concerning Damascus: “See, Damascus will no longer be a city but will become a heap of ruins.

When we look at pictures from the capital of Syria, we can see the prophetic word being fulfilled in our days. So all the pagans can read, be enlighten and turn towards the living God. Because if they do not turn to the Messiah, they will all perish.

Jesus is the Messiah. He has come once, and we can expect no one else.

Iran to trigger first nuke very soon
August 10, 2012


New intelligence reveals Iranian military nuclear program advancing faster than previously thought.




The United Nations entertain a Holocaust denier. Secretary General Ban-Ki Moon agrees with Ahmadinejad that Israel is the problem.

Western diplomat and Israeli officials who asked not to be named say U.S., Britain, France, Germany and Israel share same intelligence information, agree that assessment.’

New intelligence information obtained by Israel and four Western countries indicates that Iran has made greater progress on developing components for its nuclear weapons program than the West had previously realized, according to Western diplomats and Israeli officials who are closely involved in efforts to prevent Iran from building a nuclear bomb.

A Western diplomat who asked not to be named because he was not authorized to discuss intelligence information said the United States, Britain, France, Germany and Israel agree on that assessment.

Source: Israeli Daily Haaretz

My comment:

The World does not take Iran seriously.

The UK Bank Standard Chartered was so “afraid” of the Ayatollah, that they helped him to clear some 300 transactions, raising fund for Global Jihad.

Israel is always at the receiving end. The Ayatollah regime has promised the Islamic World to wipe Israel off the map, as soon as the Imams gets their hands on the trigger of a nuclear bomb.

In the same explosion goes two million Muslims who we call Israeli Arabs. They are all full citizens of the state of Israel.

In the same inferno of evil goes the so called “Palestinians”. Both al-Fatah and the Hamas. Unfortunately for “allah”, Gaza is hardly 50 kilometers south of Tel Aviv. And Ramallah is hardly a 12 kilometer buss ride north of Jerusalem.

If Jerusalem ever will be the target of a nuclear bomb, also the Temple Mount and the Mosques in “al-Quds” will be vaporized. So the most idiotic statements of Islamists, is that the al-Aqsa mosque and the southern end of the Temple Mount is “holy” to all Muslims.


Psalm 137:7
Remember, O LORD, what the Edomites did on the day Jerusalem fell. “Tear it down,” they cried, “tear it down to its foundations!”

The only true “holiness” for Muslims is Jew-hate. It is called Jihad. Or Holy war.

Because there is a a problem with letting Israel survive as a Zionist state. An independent Jewish homeland in the Middle East, proves that the Koran is a false revelation from “god”. Muslims have simply lost their salvation, by believing in a “god” that is compromised and weak. A grand looser.


Only if the Jews enter a “peace agreement” with Muslims, and live in submission, “allah” can be honored as Lord.

Within Islam, Jesus (ISA) is a prophet who will come back to turn the Jews and Christians towards worship of “allah”. In the Bible this deceiver is known as the last antichrist. All who believe in his falsehood will summit, honor and worship the false Messiah as their “god”.

Not you, I presume. Be careful what kind of fellowship you are attending.

Muslim fifth column of arsonists threaten West Jerusalem


Jerusalem area fire contained; 4 “Palestinians” arrested.




The People of Jerusalem have seen this too many times this summer. Everyone knows this is a fruit of Global Jihad against the Jewish people.

Over 40 firefighting squads, at least two planes extinguish large fire near Moshav Even Sapir; Jerusalem Police: Four Palestinians arrested in connection with blaze‬‬

Two large fires broke out near Moshav Even Sapir in the Jerusalem area and in the eastern Carmel region.

Over 40 firefighting squads from Jerusalem and Beit Shemesh and two airplanes were deployed to the Even Sapir area to put out the blaze, and four other aircraft were said to be on their way to the scene. Fire and rescue services annouced that the flames have been contained around 5:30 pm.

Acting Jerusalem Police Commissioner Menny Yitzhaki said that four Palestinians have been arrested in connection with the fire. He noted, however, that the police is also looking into the possibility that the fire was caused by negligent behavior of hikers.

Source: Ynetnews.com

My comment:

There might be some few arsonists who are not Muslims, but:

Some few weeks ago I saw the forest fires with my own eyes. I had just left the bus stop at Mevaseret Zyyon, when a huge fire threatened the residents living south of the highway between Jerusalem and Tel Aviv.

The fire started at two separated locations at the same time.

A couple of Arab youth had been seen in the area of the fires, and they were arrested.

Global Jihad have no regards for West Jerusalem. For them all of Israel has to be deleted.

The Jerusalem Fire Department is aware that Islamists have started to target the forest areas in West Jerusalem. The government have small aircraft’s monitoring the forests very closely.


Luke 21:23
How dreadful it will be in those days for pregnant women and nursing mothers! There will be great distress in the land and wrath against this people.

People who set the Jerusalem forests on fire, should be sentenced to long terms in prison. This kind of arsons is yet another sign of the degeneration of mankind, and that the children of the devil are loosing both their minds and all hopes for escaping the eternal fire of Hell.

Aug 13, 2012

Read Jim’s column on Rick Warren at

http://www.wnd.com/2012/08/rick-warrens-unholy-reign-as-americas-pastor/

An Unholy Reign

The piece I wrote for WorldNetDaily this week, about Rick Warren, has already produced a huge response. So much so that I wanted to take the opportunity at Israel Watch to once again discuss “Pastor Rick’s” influence regarding evangelical support for Israel.

Few people are unaware of Rick Warren’s influence. Over 30 million copies of The Purpose Driven Life have been sold. Warren regularly boasts of training a quarter million pastors in his PD marketing scheme. He gave the invocation at Barack Obama’s inauguration. The pastor of Saddleback Church in southern California—one of the very largest congregations in the U.S.—is constantly interviewed by media. He counts Tony Blair and Bono as friends.

And there is plenty of circumstantial evidence that he is no friend of Israel.

I should preface my remarks by saying that the “average” evangelical is not aware of Warren’s background or present-day associations that are really at odds with biblical Christianity. For those who have the time (and I literally urge you to find the time; I have each of the following books, along with the Kindle versions that are available); there are several key resources that will stun the reader:

•The New Evangelicalism, by Paul Smith

•Redefining Christianity, by Bob DeWaay

•A Time of Departing, by Ray Yungen

•A Wonderful Deception, by Warren Smith

•The Dark Side of the Purpose Driven Church, by Noah Hutchings

Am I really endorsing these books and prompting you to get them?

Yes, and with as much urgency as I can muster. I wouldn’t waste your time or money if I didn’t think each of the books mentioned above weren’t vital to a proper understanding of Rick Warren, the change agent. Each provides compelling evidence that Something Wicked This Way Comes to evangelicalism.

Actually, it’s already here.

Change agents began operating behind the scenes decades ago, working to transfer classic liberal theology to mainstream evangelicalism. When I was a teenager, no self-respecting pastor in America would have been caught dead even standing next to Brian McLaren. Yet in Dan Kimball’s 2003 book, The Emerging Church, forewords were written by…Rick Warren and Brian McLaren. Additionally, the cover reveals that commentary was provided by Warren, Howard Hendricks, McLaren, Sally Morgenthaler, Chip Ingram, and Mark Oestreicher.

(For a thorough critique of McLaren’s aberrant theology, I strongly urge you to search for his name at www.apprising.org)

Liberals love to complain that “critics” use “guilt by association” to unfairly characterize them. This is classic evasion with a generous helping of illogic.

We can all be measured by our associations. I associate with Bible prophecy teachers. It means that, in general, we believe the same things. For example, I treasure my friendship with David Reagan, because he is a bold witness in a dark world. If a liberal wanted to criticize me for associating with Dave, I’d say, “Thank you, sir, may I have another?”

Liberals do not like it when their associations are brought to light because, as Spurgeon used to say, darkness hates the light.

Rick Warren should have some ‘splainin’ to do with regard to his endorsement of Kimball’s book.

He doesn’t have to explain. Pastor Rick doesn’t have to be accountable for questionable associations. He’s too powerful.

When his protégés, such as Perry Noble and Steven Furtick, mock critics and call them names, Warren’s own reputation is on the line, however.

And let me give you a brief example of how a paper trail gives strong evidence that a mainstream evangelical pastor in 2012 America is not really promoting a biblical worldview:

In Paul Smith’s book, we learn that not long after the founding of Fuller Theological Seminary, liberal influences crept in. Charles Fuller’s own son, Daniel, went to Switzerland to study under Karl Barth and when he returned, he had largely abandoned belief in Bible prophecy. Fuller the Younger then exerted his influence over the seminary for the next several decades.

Rick Warren obtained a Ph.D from Fuller. In PDL, he discourages the study of Bible prophecy and, tragically, he repeated this theme at the 2011 Southern Baptist pastor’s convention.

Prophecy, of course, is intertwined with the story of Israel in the Bible. It is foundational to understanding reality.

Add to the mix the seminary’s bent toward the Church Growth movement and other unbiblical practices, and it’s not hard to see why Warren pals around with Muslim imams, denigrates Bible prophecy teaching (see PDL), and presides over a PD system that rewards the compliant and boots “dissenters.” Strong words?

I haven’t even gotten started.

There is a mountain of evidence that Warren is not what he appears to millions who don’t know enough to question his associations and practices.

His 2006 visit to Syria, in which he gave Bashar Assad an award, reveals at the very least a man so alarmingly undiscerning that he serves as a dupe for a totalitarian regime that takes its place in the pantheon of history’s most infamous.

And consider this:

Millionaire evangelical businessman Mart Green gave Saddleback a 170-acre tract of prime land in southern California (www.ocregister.com/articles/church-310690-green-lobby.html) in 2011.

Green, founder of Mardel Christian Stores and an heir to the Hobby Lobby empire, is the financial wizard behind the curtain of the anti-Israel film, Little Town of Bethlehem. The documentary follows the lives of three men who purport to practice “non-violence” in order to bring about peace between Israel and the Palestinians. Problem is, the Palestinian Christian, Palestinian Muslim, and Israeli who tell their stories all push the basic PLO line: Israel is an occupier and we must have a Palestinian state.

This odious film, along with the similar-themed With God on Our Side, is being used to turn people away from supporting Israel. Screenings at campuses and churches coast-to-coast ensure that many socially minded young evangelicals see a skewed view of the Jewish state.

By the way, it might interest you to know that I have been counseled—even, incredibly, by pro Israel supporters—to temper my remarks on these subjects and to avoid naming so many names. Everyone is free to follow his or her own conscience. As for me, I am committed thoroughly to exposing the anti-Israel agenda being sold to evangelical audiences in America.

We are in the place we are in due in part to our past silence, or failure to see what was going on. When McLaren, Hank Hanegraaff, Gary Burge, Stephen Sizer, Jim Wallis and several others denigrate Christian Zionists and Israel, it’s past time to speak up.

Let me give you another example of how associations and like-mindedness harm Israel and her Christian supporters.

Craig Groeschel is senior pastor of LifeChurch.tv in Edmond, Oklahoma. It is I believe the fastest-growing church in the country, and Groeschel is a protégé of Warren and Bill Hybels; his ministry roots come from the United Methodist Church (among other things, perhaps the premier anti-Israel denomination in the U.S.).

Groeschel is an affable, engaging, brilliant communicator who is a key player in the Church Growth/Seeker Driven methodology that is currently the rage. He is disciplined, smart, and seemingly free from the immaturity of his own, lesser-disciplined protégés Noble and Furtick (be sure and check out Furtick’s “Hey, Haters” video rant on YouTube).

So far as I know, Groeschel doesn’t take controversial stands in public. Yet his associate pastor at LifeChurch, Bobby Gruenewald, displays on his Facebook page an affiliation with the group, “Help Spread the Message of Non-Violence.”

Sounds good, right? What self-respecting Christian wouldn’t endorse a non-violent approach to the Middle East crisis? I mean, we’re not Bashar Assad, are we?

However…some rainy afternoon when your chores are done, scroll through the associations of those “members” of this group. Here are a few examples:

•Benjamin Por Boonyarit supports the “cause” titled: “Stop the [sic] Israel’s War Crimes in Gaza.”

•Janelle Gingrich-Caudle supports the “causes” titled: “International Solidarity Movement,” and “Stop House Demolitions in east Jerusalem.”

•Sami Awad, the spirit behind Little Town of Bethlehem, and a friend of Mart Green, supports the “cause” titled: “Stop Calling Muslims Terrorists.”

My question is, why would a Palestinian Christian like Awad take on this issue? Further, one has only to investigate the claims of researchers like Erick Stakelbeck, Robert Spencer, Pam Geller, and Steve Emerson to conclude that not only are a huge number of Muslims either terrorists or supporters of the ideology, but that they are making alarming inroads into the fabric of American life.

The associations above (the ISM is a radical left-wing movement openly hostile to Israel) are part of what people believe. They are like-minded folks. While Gruenewald might not endorse everything these people do, he identifies with this larger “non-violence” group. To accuse Israel of war crimes is to bear false witness against the Jewish state.

(As an aside, Gruenewald, on his FB page, describes himself as having skills in the area of “activator, futurist, ideation, achiever and competition.” Huh? Can you imagine the pastor of your youth self-identifying with such New Age goo?)

Again, it’s all about associations.

Further, as of last fall, Jim Hanon, the director of Little Town of Bethlehem, attended LifeChurch.

I’m stating the obvious: like-minded folks mix with like-minded folks. We all do. The issue is, what do they believe and what do they promote/endorse? What is true and what is not true? What is good and what is harmful?



Let me digress for a minute to show you where a pastor who no longer teaches from the Bible ends up. Not long ago, I was watching a mega-church pastor I personally know. He favorably quoted the French philosopher Jean Paul-Sarte. I studied Sarte in college and know that among other things, he was a Che Guevera groupie, going so far as to calling the killer-thug the “era’s most perfect man.” He called Che an intellectual. Wow. Why would a pastor think that a fellow like Sarte had anything of value to say to an evangelical audience?

Here’s another one: a few years ago while perusing my local paper’s Religion section, I saw that a church was going to have a seminar entitled: “The Theological Implications of King Lear.”

Question: who cares? When did we stop teaching the Bible in America? 1792? How have we gotten to this point? Pastors today preach about sex, getting along with your boss, even fashion. The pulpit has been replaced by thin plexiglass stands, beds, cars, motorcycles, tables from Pier 1. “Sermons” have titles with words like “naked” in them, so that today’s Evangelical Pastor is more snickering 12-year-old behind a fence, reading a dirty magazine than he is spiritual leader.

Jean-Paul Sarte? Seriously?

When a church leader departs from biblical teaching—of which a chunk is a proper understanding of the role of Israel, the Jews, and Bible prophecy—he becomes a cartoon.

Back to eroding support for Israel.

It is at least plausible that Craig Groeschel shares similar views of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. His mentor, Rick Warren, mixes with younger evangelical leaders who are concerned about the situation in “Palestine.”

Even those who identify with “Palestine” telegraph their politics and worldview. Do you see? Palestine doesn’t exist. It might exist, depending upon the pressure put on Israel by the global body known as the UN. The international community—several leaders are Rick Warren’s friends—loathe the Jewish state.

As of yet, however, when an evangelical leader says that he is going to visit “Palestine,” we can know that he has already gone over to the left. He already identifies with the Palestinians, whose leadership at the very least wants to destroy Israel.

This anti-Israel ideology and theology is coming into the American Church like a flood.

Let me be clear about something: my litmus test for endorsing/following a religious leader is Israel. I look for other things, as well, but it all pivots off one’s worldview regarding Jews, Israel, and predictive prophecy.

My thinking is, if such a leader is right about the theology of Israel, he’s probably going to be right about most other things in the Bible. That’s why those evangelical pastors who attended last spring’s anti-Israel “Christ at the Checkpoint” event—Joel Hunter, John Ortberg, Bob Roberts—have zero credibility with me. None.

When John Piper tweets the anti-semitic question, “Who is a Jew?” as he did, I tune him out. When a Christian publisher begins to hang out with PLO groupies, I’m not listening to him anymore or supporting his propaganda.

There is much more to write, and it will be written, I can assure you.

If you are a supporter of Israel, and care about both the Jewish state and the American Church, you’d better pull your head out of wherever it’s stuck and get in the game. Time is running out; evangelical change agents are well on the way to overturning pro Israel support in America.

If you’d like to communicate with me directly about this clear-and-present danger, please do.

Re: Make sure you love Israel

This is my witness about blessing Israel:

Part of my tithe I gave so far for spreading the words and poor people around the world except in Israel.
I get my blessing but not as abundant as I get when I started this month to bless Israel by my money literally.
I am in a financial trouble. We started to give to Israel just last month, and suddenly out of no where I started to receive income from some sources I never expected before. It is really a miracle. It is still a mystery to me how blessing Israel before blessing the gentiles will bring more to our everyday blessing.
I couldn't explain why, but it is true ... now I am blessing Israel also with part of my tithe a significant portion of it ... and the result even more amazing. You want to receive the blessing too? Start doing it and experience it ...

Re: Make sure you love Israel

Amen.

Can Anything Good Come Out of Nazareth?

Ariel Sharon told me once that he expected peace with the Arabs “in 500 years.” I thought then that his assessment was pretty accurate. From time immemorial, the Jews’ cousins have fomented violence in the region, and today they have infected seemingly the entire international community with a hatred of Zionism.

But I am cautiously optimistic.

I spoke this week with two people who personify the hope that can come to this tortured region. They are part of a new generation that from all indications is serious about moving past ancient blood feuds. Perhaps there can even be rapprochement among factions in the Arab League. Wouldn’t that be a miracle and a blessing?

My dear friends at the America-Israel Friendship League (AIFL) have been sponsoring young people on trips to Israel for a quarter-century. Michael Watts, who lives in Washington DC, visited with me this week about his delegation in 1989, as part of the League’s “Youth Ambassador Student Exchange” program. Here’s the really interesting part: at the time, as a teenager, Watts came from a religiously blended family: a Muslim mother and a Christian father (today he is about to become a licensed Christian minister).

Watts is president of the Michael Watts Project, which specializes in organizational development and executive coaching. He credits his trip to Israel as a catalyst for what he does today.

“It was part of my classroom,” he remembers. “The experience shaped my career, and my philosophy of working with others.”

Although Watts took his trip to Israel at the beginning of the First Intifada, he had a delightful experience and maintains to this day a positive impression of the Jewish state.

Kathleen Kim is a recent graduate of Syracuse University, where she majored in journalism, and was an editor with the school’s newspaper. She is obviously part of the “Generation Y” demographic—college-age citizens who seem especially interested in impacting the world in a positive way. I believe I can say with some knowledge that Kathleen and her fellow travelers appear more engaged with helping others than accumulating “stuff” for themselves—certainly more than my generation. Although multi-culturalism has to have checks and balances like anything else, it is the vehicle by which Generation Y hopes to drive to a better future.

Kathleen told me that this was her first trip to Israel, and that several things impressed her, especially the devotion to country she saw from young members of the IDF.

“Their love of country and patriotism was very impressive,” she said.

I see this as an important perspective that acts as a counter-weight to the propaganda put out by a growing number of American Christian leaders that seem drunk on the false view that Israel is an apartheid state. Folks like Jim Wallis could learn a thing or 80 from the participants in the YASE program (who, by the way, receive a well-rounded trip, which includes plenty of opportunity to have private dialogue with Palestinians).

One can think back to the environments in which, for example, a young Yasser Arafat emerged, and recognize that that cauldron of xenophobia and racism produced nothing but tragedy. The AIFL trips are the antithesis of that dark period, bringing together Muslims, Jews, and Christians who can see each other as human beings.

Kenneth Bialkin, chairman of the AIFL, is frankly a power-broker in New York, Washington, and Jerusalem. He counts heads-of-state among his friends. Yet he is passionately devoted to bringing youth into the future in a positive way. Ken understands that Christians especially are true friends of the Jewish people:

“Working with Christian evangelicals is more than rewarding—it is inspiring. It is inspiring because it is not unusual to find friendly reception from Jewish people, and so when non-Jewish people see the merit and the justice in Israel’s situation, we know it reflects thought and reflects study and understanding. Which is what gives me a great sense of comfort.

“In fact, given the current political environment, it is becoming more likely that Jews we encounter because of their political leaning are somewhat less sympathetic to Israel than Christians who have taken their learning and study of these issues more seriously.”

Bialkin recognizes the genuine value in building bridges of understanding, and in this I am optimistic that extremist views can be blunted.

When I attended last fall the annual meeting of Evangelicals for Middle East Understanding (EMEU), I was of course dismayed by the anti-Christian Zionist fervor of the Western speakers. Yet it was the Arab speakers who seemed to understand reality. Several even found one or two positive things to say about Israel, and I found those like Nazareth attorney Botrus Mansour possessing a discerning grasp of human nature.

All this makes me somewhat hopeful that younger generations will not wake up too frequently to terrible news of death in the Middle East. Bible-believing Christians know where Ultimate Peace comes from, but in the meantime, there is nothing wrong at all with extending a hand of kindness to those who come from different experiences.

That is an effort that makes me cautiously optimistic that Sharon’s gloomy view was too pessimistic.

Holy Land Tours


I attended a seminar at a nearby mega-church yesterday. The seminar itself was based on church growth techniques and was disturbing (although the 1,500 who attended soaked it up like sponges), but that subject is for another day.

The relevance for our purposes today is that one of the presenters at this seminar is pastor of a rabidly anti-Israel church—identified as evangelical!

While strolling through the church’s bookstore during a break, I noticed a flyer on the counter: the host pastor of this seminar is also hosting a “Holy Land Tour” next year in—as I like to call it—Israel.

A dear Lutheran friend of mine clued me in a few years ago that for decades, there has been a tendency to call organized trips to Israel…”Holy Land tours.” It is a subtle attempt to remove the Jewish nature of the country; many Christian leaders today are loathe to say “Israel.”

I knew when I picked up the flyer that this mega-church pastor is in reality what I’d call quasi-pro Israel. This means that he would be nominally—at best—“pro Israel.” He has from time to time hosted prophecy teachers, and his denomination in the past was traditionally hospitable to dispensationalism.

What we are witnessing in our Church culture in this country is a passing—a transition from a “golden age” of pro Israel support, to a turning away from the Jewish state and embrace of the Palestinian narrative.

This grieves my heart.

In the coming months, I will be exposing a light on these shocking developments, and presenting an action plan for pro Israel folks to counter this rising tide of leftist theology.

(Only this week, I heard the fellow I am now calling “The Koran Answer Man,” Hank Hanegraaff, take a call from a woman who asked if there is a biblical mandate to support Israel. He said of course there isn’t, and went on to say that we are in fact called to support “moral evil.” I’m going to put words in Hanegraaff’s mouth at this juncture and say that he was a step away from alleging that the state of Israel engages in moral evil by occupying the Palestinians.)

At the same time these things are going on in America, word comes (via the Jewish Tribune) that Bedouin in the Negev are claiming 200,000 acres, squatting on Jewish land. This of course is another form of land-grab; a more sophisticated version is the Oslo “peace process,” now 20 years old and more of a disaster than when it began.

I point this out because one can admit to being taken aback by the myriad threats facing Israel. Benjamin Netanyahu must be made of stern stuff, to be able to put his feet on the floor each morning and face his day. And to think, some heads of state play golf regularly, vacation with their family and entourage, and undermine their own country.

In this age of anti-Jewish invective coming from…the Church…and a lack of courage in our pulpits (generally speaking), we see a paradox: as the end of the age draws nigh, it is easy to be anxious and worried. At the same time, if we hold to Scripture alone, we know this is a glorious time to be alive.

Israel will survive and thrive. At the same time, I am grieved by the posture of the Church on this issue. Standing up to these forces from the left requires one to engage in a brutal and dark fight with people who do not hold to Scripture as their authority.

The saints who have gone on before us, I’m convinced, would be shocked at these developments, but they wouldn’t be surprised.

There is a strange wind of ecumenical fervor sweeping through the Evangelical Church in America, and it is making for some strange bedfellows. The pastor I mentioned at the outset of this article is a prime example.

Stay tuned.

Takeover

I have been writing recently about the transformation of the Evangelical community from its 20th century identification, to one that has been hijacked by liberalism and a leftist agenda that has truly, “crept in unawares.”

Phil Johnson has provided a clear definition of this:

“Historic evangelicalism has two clear distinctives. One is a commitment to the inspiration and authority of Scripture. The other is a conviction that the gospel message is clear and non-negotiable.”

What we are now witnessing is the almost-complete takeover of historical evangelicalism by folks like Brian McLaren and his friends. A major plank of their platform is a denial of Bible prophecy and the closely associated support for Israel that has been a hallmark of dispensationalist teachings. The new breed of pastor in America’s pulpits seems to have a particular loathing of the Jewish state. They are also clever enough to stage the takeover in, well, stages. Again, Johnson:

“With the advent of the seeker-sensitive movement, however, evangelicals began to be influenced by a new species of entrepreneurial leaders who marginalized those core doctrines by neglect. Most of them didn’t overtly deny essential biblical truths; but neither did they vigorously stress or defend anything other than their own methodology.

“The results were predictable: Churches are now filled with formerly unchurched people who are still untaught and perhaps even unconverted. Multitudes of children raised on a treacly diet of seeker-sensitive religion have grown up to associate the label evangelical with superficiality. Most of them cannot tell you what the term originally meant, and they reject whatever vestigial evangelical boundaries or doctrinal distinctives their parents may have held onto. But they still call themselves evangelicals when it’s convenient, and many have remained at the fringes of the visible movement, decrying how out of step the church is with their generation. That, after all, is exactly what they learned from their parents.”

Frankly, evangelicalism’s most prominent voices supportive of Israel have begun to pass from the scene: men such as Jerry Falwell and Adrian Rogers. They have been replaced by the likes of Andy Stanley, Craig Groeschel, Bill Hybels, and Rick Warren. None of those men are pro Israel, and from all indications, they treat Bible prophecy teachers like lepers.

I spoke to a former member of a church pastored by one of these men, and was told that the pastor treats prophecy like it’s a red-hot poker.

My writing of late has been repetitive on this subject, simply because I believe this is the great, under-reported story of our time, in the Evangelical community. It is leading to an overtly hostile view of Israel and the Jews.

A new example of the close inter-action between evangelicals and Palestinian propagandists is the Holy Land Christian Ecumenical Foundation. Palestinians Elias Chacour and Michel Sabbah are involved. They have teamed with evangelicals such as Wheaton’s Gary Burge to disseminate the Palestinian narrative.

On the HCEF’s board of directors is Michael Kruse, another Wheaton grad whose career as a diplomat serves him well in networking internationally.

Let me share with you, my friends, a key strategy of groups that promote the Palestinian propaganda. The HCEF is hosting in November the “14th International Conference 3rd Business, Investment & ICT Conference, at the National 4H Conference Center in Chevy Chase, Maryland. The theme is “Continuing Our Commitment to Peace, Prosperity & Dialogue.”

Also on the agenda is the “2nd-KTH Palestinian Youth Diaspora Conference,” which will be held on Sunday, November 11, 2012. Part of the published agenda is to “build relations with the youth where the Palestinian Youth Diaspora lives to build solidarity and support with the Palestinian People.”

Notice the reference to “diaspora,” meaning dispersion and exile from one’s homeland. This term is most closely associated of course with Jews who were expelled from their ancestral homeland. By co-opting the term, the Palestinians further their goal of moral equivalency.

Interestingly, one of the presenters is Noa Baum, described as “Storyteller, Promoting Peace through the Art of Storytelling.”

According to the conference literature:

“Noa’s one-woman show, A Land Twice Promised, relives her heartfelt dialogue with a Palestinian woman, illuminating the complex and contradictory history and emotions surrounding Jerusalem for Israelis and Palestinians alike.”

Because today’s younger generations tend to place more emphasis on subjectivism, and hold at arm’s length a presentation of facts and documentation, “storytelling” becomes preeminent. In other words, a story about Palestinian abuse at the hands of Israelis (often made up out of thin air) trumps facts and history that buttress Israel’s position.

A small-but-interesting detail is that Baum “performs and teaches internationally, highlights include: The World Bank, Mayo Clinic,

US. Defense Department, Hebrew University in Jerusalem, Fabula Festival, Sweden, Jewish Theological Seminary, NYC, GWU Law School, DC, Brandies and Stanford Universities, Hebrew University and The Kennedy Center.”

I mention this to highlight again the global cooperation the Palestinians have attained.

I hope you are able to see at least in part how the Palestinians have garnered international support for their goals. The goal, in essence, is the same hatched by Yasser Arafat in the 1950s: liquidate the Jewish state. Whereas in the past, the Arabs wished to do so on the battlefield, they now have shifted their focus to the geo-political realm and the religious community. There’s nothing like a shattering military defeat, repeatedly, to foster a change in one’s tactics.

Because that’s all this is: tactics and strategy. The main goal is always the same: destroy Israel.

A key element in this plan—which, I’d like to emphasize, is working splendidly—is to hijack evangelical support of Israel. That is happening now on a breathtaking scale.

What I’m attempting to communicate is that while certain evangelical leaders like Groeschel and Stanley don’t make comments about Israel (their main focus of course is Church Growth/Seeker Driven strategies), they associate with plenty of people who hate Israel. This view has become mainstream among top evangelical leadership in America.

To bring this back around, modern evangelicalism in America has little to do with advancing a Gospel agenda. It has much to do with social justice and misguided attempts to dialogue with our sworn enemies.

This type of dialogue goes back decades, when mainline representatives became pals with the likes of Arafat. The influence has trickled down to now, when the same type of leftist, social-justice emphasis has supplanted evangelical outreach. Sadly, many seem not to notice.

The Religious Left, which includes the “new evangelicals,” is shockingly hostile to Israel, and opposes the Jewish state through subtle means. They are even employing the “non-violent” emphasis, which is pushed by Palestinian Christians like Sami Awad. This approach oddly enough—tongue-in-cheek—has the same goals as the PLO/PA.

A sure sign you’ve stumbled-onto this propaganda is when you hear someone say they are both “pro Israel and pro Palestine.” When someone talks of “Palestine” like it’s a current political reality, you can be sure you are hearing leftist ideology. Simply put, I don’t believe any of the new evangelicals who are proponents of this, when they say they are also pro Israel. If one supports a Palestinian state, in the current climate, then one either has no clue what the Palestinian Authority/Hamas has planned, or they do and don’t care. I’m afraid too many fall into the latter camp, including “evangelicals” supportive of “Palestine.”

The battle rages.

Europe is Finished

Yes, finished.


It never ceases to amaze me how dumb sophisticates can be, particularly when it comes to Israel and the Jews. History is littered with the wreckage of civilizations that thought it was expedient to either oppress the Jews, or be indifferent to their plight.

Now comes word that Greek announces the European Union might ban goods made in the “settlements.” Once again, it’s not hard to hear them hiss when they say “sssssssettlements.”

There are gleaming Jewish communities throughout the land of Israel—although much of Judea/Samaria (international community: the “West Bank” ) is still empty. In the modern era’s inversion of the truth, calling good evil and evil good, Israel is “racist” when it comes to dealing with the Palestinians. Even though the ultimate racism is preventing Jews from living wherever they want. No one tells a person from Oman that he can’t live somewhere.

From a Jerusalem Post report:

According to multiple Israeli media reports, the Greek diplomat, speaking to reporters during a Geneva Initiative seminar in the Greek capital, said that EU nations were currently holding discussions on the issue. Among moves being considered were a total import ban on settlement goods or the implementation of special labels for goods made in communities beyond the Green Line, such as South Africa adopted last month.”

Of course, South Africa. Get it? Apartheid state?

The Post report continues:

“The Foreign Ministry issued a harsh statement following South Africa's decison, saying that the measure adopted was unprecedented and constituted ‘blatant discrimination based on national and political distinction. This kind of discrimination has not been imposed – and rightly so – in any other case of national, territorial or ethnic conflict. Israel and South Africa have political differences, and that is legitimate. What is totally unacceptable is the use of tools which, by essence, discriminate and single out, fostering a general boycott.’”

As I keep saying, Israel is in effect now surrounded by enemies, and every time an American Christian leader pushes the Palestinian narrative, Israel suffers. Which is what these leaders like. However, they should read history and realize that, like Haman, Antiochus, Titus, Muhammad, etc., History is watching.

The “apartheid” label is something that “Christians” also like pushing, particularly that rare cat, Jimmy Carter, who is both an international politician and menacing critic of the Jewish state, from within the Christian community. Look, at least he identifies that way.

One would think that the Greeks could find better things to do than join another Jewish witch-hunt.

It is fascinating, in a scary sort of way, to watch the international community coalesce around a vicious anti-Israel campaign. It is outright disconcerting to see the American Christian leadership community follow suit. Truly, the encirclement of Israel is almost complete.

The nations are right where History wants them.

The Turning Point

A few years ago, while walking down Nablus Road in Jerusalem, I saw two Israeli police officers holding six Palestinian men for questioning. The six were standing against a wall. I’m pretty sure the police would have rather been doing anything else, yet the six were obviously suspected of something not good.

Hamas “martyr” (shaheed) posters were all over the eastern part of the city.

The issue then, as now, involves the Islamist agenda of jihad. Terrorist attacks, “small” or large, have been foisted upon peaceful people for decades by people who hate because their religion tells them to hate. And conquer. And destroy.

The events this week, beginning with the brutal torture and murder of our diplomats in Libya, are now burning across the Middle East. Egypt. Yemen. Tunisia. The psychopaths involved are waging a campaign of murder, disinformation, propaganda, destabilization, and economic misery.

A friend of mine who lives in Israel told me this week that there is an unusually large number of Israeli troops stopping to pray at the Western Wall. Everywhere, there are signs that the country is on a war footing.

What many in American fail to grasp is that Western civilization is on a war footing. For many years we have been fed the lie that Islam is a peaceful religion. We’ve been told that only a tiny percentage of Muslims advocate violence. We’ve been told that grievances over alleged American sins have contributed to a climate of mistrust that inevitably spills over into violence.

All of that is a lie.

The Israelis have known this for a very long time. What’s disturbing is that so few American leaders understand it or are willing to face up to the threat. It is a complete outrage that our diplomats and our embassies are under attack. And the American president is standing down. I wonder…why?

There are myriad elements to this story, but perhaps the most disturbing to me, an evangelical/Bible-believing Christian, is why our religious leaders are such dupes for the jihadists. This period of time we’re living in requires all of us to examine who we are and what we believe.

I am greatly concerned that evangelical leadership and the Religious Left—increasingly seen as the same entity—are either silent or complicit in the propaganda war waged so skillfully by the jihadists.

At the time of this writing, no real word on the embassy attacks and murders from the likes of Brian McLaren, Jim Wallis, Rick Warren, Lynne Hybels, or Shane Claiborne. Hybels did forward a commentary from a friend of hers, who felt compelled to also mention that film that served as a pretext for the pre-planned attacks.

Lame.

A recent article in Charisma News featured Muhammad Musri, president of the Islamic Society of Central Florida. Musri said, among other things, that:

“No religion condones terrorism, and that includes Islam. What came out of 9/11 was the worst of a small percentage of Muslims. As a Muslim, I believe that a true Muslim would not fly a plane into a building and kill people. Islam by name is peace. Those people were extremists, and they used our religion to further their own goals and agenda.

“It’s a constant struggle. It’s very discouraging when someone looks at you with fear in their eyes because they think you could be a terrorist. It’s gotten much worse since 9/11. We are trying to educate Christians and others by coming together and showing them that’s not what we’re about. We’re about peace.”

Really? Because it is a matter of historical fact that 19 true Muslims did fly airplanes loaded with innocents into the World Trade Center. I find it very difficult to believe that any Muslim in a significant leadership position actually believes the religion is about peace.

Epic, stunning lies are being forced down onto the American people.

A wave of what I’d call “softening-up” of American attitudes toward Islam is washing over our country, particularly our churches. I’ve discussed quite a bit the warm relations Rick Warren has with Muslims, including his infamous 2006 visit with the Butcher of Damascus, Bashar Assad. To my knowledge, only Joseph Farah at WorldNetDaily had the guts to forcefully call Warren on this outrage.

If one examines the speakers at the Catalyst Conferences (www.catalystspace.com), there is a definite pattern of accommodation with worldviews that are the antithesis of biblical Christianity and Western values. I’m speaking of—as just one example—the inclusion of Dr. Cornel West as a Catalyst speaker. West is a self-described “non-Marxist socialist.”

Can you imagine we’ve come to this? A pro Palestinian, Marxist (I know, I know…he said he isn’t a Marxist) is an invited speaker at an event organized and hosted by the likes of Andy Stanley? Does anybody understand the implications of that? Hello? Anybody home?

Do you understand that our Evangelical community is being fundamentally changed in the same way the president is fundamentally changing America? Remember, in a current television ad, former President/Appeaser-in-Chief, Bill Clinton, said that Obama has a plan to rebuild America from the ground up.

Yes, he does.

Andy Stanley, in 2011, hosted Michelle Obama to speak at his Atlanta church. Obama and her husband are perhaps the most anti-Israel occupants of the White House ever. And that’s saying something, since the White House was stained by Jimmy Carter for four years.

There is a definite Leftist element in such mega-churches as Stanley’s and Craig Groeschel’s LifeChurch. Yet few seem to care. I’ve attempted to interview all these people, to try and understand why they have created these cultures in their churches and, since they are the major movers and shakers in Evangelical leadership today, it seems highly important that they are advancing these agendas.

I’ve been turned down by all of them, despite repeated requests through proper channels to interview them. When leaders don’t want the masses to really know what they’re up to, they stonewall and go silent.

Wake up, Christians.

I spoke to a mega-church Southern Baptist pastor about this two weeks ago and in effect, he gave me the written equivalent of the finger. Told me I was flat wrong about “his friends” and that I was being judgmental.

Whew. We are in deep, dark waters, my friends.

All this to say, Scripture tells us quite clearly that at the time of the end, the Jews/Israel will be protected supernaturally by the Lord Himself. Of this I have no doubt.

It is the rest of us I am deeply saddened about. May God have mercy on believers in our beloved country. We are now sailing in uncharted waters, watching an American president fiddle while the country burns. Our national religious leaders are standing-down and/or are complicit in the implantation of socialist/Marxist values in our nation and in our churches.

They loathe Israel, Jews, and Bible prophecy with a vehemence I find breath-taking.

I care not one whit about the denials of what I’ve just outlined. I have quite a large database of documentation to back up what I’m saying.

And my friends in Israel—God love all of you—are going to glorious victory after victory on the battlefield that is looming, because He is going before you. God bless Bibi Netanyahu and the magnificent fighting men and women of the IDF.

I love my own country and the people in it, and those who have gone before, who never got off the beaches at Normandy, or who likewise perished, from Tripoli to Baghdad.

May God have mercy on us.

When Discernment is Gone

In 2010 and again in 2011, the German newspaper Die Welt alleged that Venezuela and Iran had entered into an agreement for the joint operation of a missile base in Venezuela. Almost as a punch line, the U.S. State Department said that it had no evidence of such a claim. Of course, that doesn’t mean the CIA doesn’t.

Since the beginning of 2011, a total of 1,383 rockets have been fired into Israel, from Gaza. U.S. officials are largely silent about this, and the American Religious Left pretends that the “occupation” is to blame for the lack of peace in the Middle East.

And according to the Meir Amit Intelligence and Terrorism Information Center this past week:

“A press release issued by Egypt’s interior minister said that Egyptian security apparatuses operating in the Sinai Peninsula were able to ascertain the identity of seven mostly Palestinian individuals suspected of carrying out the terrorist attack at Kerem Shalom on August 5, 2012, in which 16 Egyptian soldiers had been killed. Also seized were numerous weapons, including hundreds of anti-aircraft missiles, ground-to-ground missiles, and RPG rockets.” Additionally, we learn that:

“A large stockpile of weapons was seized in the south of Mount Hebron during a round of terrorist operatives’ arrests conducted by IDF forces. The arrests took place in several Palestinian villages near Hebron after intelligence information was received suggesting that a there was a large stockpile of weapons inside a residential building. The weapons seized by the IDF soldiers included two Uzi submachine guns, a pistol, a Kalashnikov, and numerous rounds of ammunition. The operatives were detained and handed over to security forces for questioning.”

These large and “small” developments are deeply troubling, and reflect the mendacious nature of the Arab/Muslim world, directed at both Israel and America. That Hugo Chavez has struck a missile deal with the Iranians should is a matter of critical national concern. It should keep Americans up at night.

This also coming on the heels of the ghastly murder of four American embassy staffers in Libya last week.

And yet…

We have long known that a high number of American officials in Washington are deluded when it comes to threats from our enemies. Liberals believe in appeasement and the fundamental goodness of man, which is an obvious myth.

But it is the growing delusion of the American Religious Left that I think is the biggest under-reported story going on in geo-politics. Researcher and writer Dexter Van Zile produced a brilliant analysis this week of one such religious leader, evangelical pastor Bob Roberts, Jr., pastor of NorthWood Church in the Dallas/Fort Worth area. Roberts advocates building bridges of cooperation with Muslims. I strongly urge you to read Dexter’s report:

http://blog.camera.org/archives/2012/09/megachurch_pastor_bob_roberts.html

Earlier in the week, Roberts went on a disturbing rant on Twitter, demanding that evangelicals “denounce” the film, “The Innocents of Muslims,” which has been used as a pretext for murdering Americans. The murders are the story, not the film trailer (which I’ve watched). Yet Roberts and his fellow dupes fall in line with Barack Obama’s grotesque round of apologies. Can you imagine FDR apologizing to the Japanese on December 7, 1941? We’re all still here because America did the opposite after that day of infamy.

Roberts’ stunning appeasement of our enemies emboldens them. The real danger here is that this pacifism doesn’t stop with Roberts. As I’ve documented numerous times, plenty of leaders from the Religious Left advocate for our enemies. Specifically, those who have hijacked the term “evangelical,” in order to fool real evangelicals, help to spread both Palestinian propaganda and the lies of the wider Arab/Muslim world.

As an aside, one can begin to get a sense of where Roberts is coming from by looking at his background. Like Rick Warren and other key leaders on the Religious Left, Roberts earned his doctorate from Fuller Theological Seminary. The lefties at Fuller and Wheaton have made sure for a long time that liberalism slithers into the Evangelical Community.

With stories circulating that a massive naval confrontation is looming in the Persian Gulf, and reports that Israel is on a war footing, it behooves all of us to pay attention to what is going on. In particular, I urge readers to follow, analyze, and disseminate the allegations of leaders like Bob Roberts, Jr. He has many friends in leadership positions around the country and around the world, including his friends at the infamous “Christ at the Checkpoint” conference.

Many thanks to Dexter Van Zile for spotlighting the problem.

Pro Peace. Pro Palestinian. Pro Jesus. Pro Israel?

I attended Catalyst East this week, in Atlanta. It is one of the largest gatherings of young evangelical leaders in America. Catalyst had its genesis with The Leadership Network, a key group aligned with Rick Warren, Andy Stanley, and others.

My primary interest was to observe up-close new trends toward Israel, among evangelical leadership. I’ve been writing about this for some time. To paraphrase a description once of James Cagney, these young evangelicals are what they appeared to be.

That is, largely pro Palestinian.

Mentoring leadership, such as that of Lynne Hybels, contributes to this. Hybels presented a workshop based on her understanding of the Arab-Israel conflict. We disagree on a great many things but to her credit, she agreed to an interview with me in several weeks, after she returns from a heavy travel schedule.

Among other things, Hybels presented no context with regard to physical conflicts between Israel and her Arab neighbors. For example, in her admittedly brief overview of the region, war seemed to spring up out of nowhere. No mention of Arab invasions of Israel in 1948 or 1973, or the cataclysmic decisions of Egypt’s Nasser in 1967, which led to Israel administering the disputed territories of Judea/Samaria, or as the world largely knows it, the West Bank.

I also spoke with Bobby Gruenewald, a leader with LifeChurch.tv, in Edmond, Oklahoma. LifeChurch is perhaps the fastest-growing church in America, with its emphasis on video links with satellite church locations. Gruenewald and Hybels were willing to engage me in conversation about this subject although, to be fair, the Palestinian issue is not Gruenewald’s issue. One of his passions is the furtherance of “YouVersion,” Bibles people can download to reading devices, including their smartphones. Gruenewald told me that last month, Lifechurch tracked two billion minutes of reading time among YouVersion readers.

All that is to be commended.

For the purposes of this discussion, though, it is quite clear that evangelical leadership (Bob Roberts, Jr., Shane Claiborne, Lynne Hybels, etc.) has moved away from the pro Israel leadership exemplified by folks like Jerry Falwell. I have noted a strong affinity with the Palestinian position in churches like LifeChurch, WillowCreek, and others.

Everything I saw at Catalyst confirmed this drift. In dozens of random conversations, I noted that “Millennials,” the 20-somethings who are quickly dominating the evangelical scene, expressed solidarity with the Palestinians, and annoyance with Israel. This is a seismic shift in the American Church, a serious, serious threat to Israel’s one traditional area of support.

For example, Hybels and others have begun framing the issue in terms of “Pro Peace, Pro Israel, Pro Palestinian, and Pro Jesus.” Others, such as Glenn Stassen, David Gushee, Brian McLaren, and Tony Campolo, savage Christian Zionists in the most odious terms. Hybels presents a softer, gentler side of Palestinian advocacy.

One area of dispute I have with Christian Palestinianists like Hybels is that if one is “Pro Palestine” in the sense of embracing the diabolical “land for peace” initiative, or even the “two-state solution,” one cannot in any real sense be pro Israel. There are myriad issues related to Israel’s security that simply don’t square with this latest plank in the PLO strategy to destroy the Jewish state.

That is a bridge I’m not confident we can build together.

Several young people I spoke with at Catalyst displayed little actual knowledge of the conflict, yet they soak up “story” and “narrative.” In other words, facts no longer work. Some data I read from LifeWay indicates that 71 percent of Millennials don’t read the Bible. This is probably similar to that of the rest of the country, but it represents a reality that leaves me dismayed.

If you ask a person like this if they know the PLO was formed in 1964, three years before the Six Day War, they stare at you and blink. After a moment, though, they will begin to rattle-off the usual list of alleged Israeli “crimes,” such as detaining pregnant women at checkpoints. They have absorbed the talking points put into their hands by Palestinian change agents.

But they don’t understand reality.

Couple this with an alarming trend of what I’d call quasi-Replacement Theology, in which celebrity pastors like Steven Furtick lift OT passages dealing with the Jews and Israel, and use them to stoke the already growing narcissism present in humanity. In other words, the story of God’s protection of His Chosen People in the example of Joshua becomes, in Furtick’s hands, a lesson in self-help and reaching for God’s “Greater” vision for your life!

Or in the account of David and Goliath, we see evangelical leadership now teaching congregations how to “slay the giants in your life.”

On and on it goes.

Pro Israel leadership has a serious problem on its hands in America. Unless Millennials can be reached with the message and legitimacy of Zionism, Israel will see her allies in America dry up to nothing.

Christians gathers in Jerusalem to support Israel


Waving blue and white Israeli flags, thousands of evangelical Christians from around the world filled streets of downtown Jerusalem.


Evangelical Christians gathered in Israel for the Biblical festival of Sukkot.

The annual march during the weeklong Jewish Sukkot holiday brings together Christians from dozens of countries.

Evangelical Christians are known as strong supporters of Israel, providing financial help and political backing, especially in the U.S. Even so, their hard-line views toward Palestinians and suspect religious motivations make some moderate Israelis and Jews abroad uncomfortable.


“This is the real United Nations,” said Sheila Hakes, 41, from Alabama. “Israelis are our brothers and sisters, so we must protect them from Iran and evil,” a reference to Iran’s suspicious nuclear program, adding, “Jesus will come here again.”

Thursday’s event was organized by the International Christian Embassy of Jerusalem, a group that promotes ties between Israel and the world’s Christian communities. The group also sponsored a conference this week that drew more than 5,000 people from nearly 90 countries, including 25 parliamentarians from various nations.

Another prominent group, the International Fellowship of Christians and Jews, said it raises more than USD 110 million a year for charitable causes in Israel.

Source: Washington Post

My comment:

Evangelical Christians who do not support Israel have been deceived. At best they are lukewarm.

Let me underline: Many people will be saved by the Messiah, regardless of they were able locate Israel on the map. But if it was within your capacity to bless the Jewish homeland, and you ignored or harm the Jewish people, you are in for trouble.


Isaiah 40:1-3
Comfort, comfort my people,
 says your God.
 Speak tenderly to Jerusalem,
 and proclaim to her
that her hard service has been completed,
 that her sin has been paid for,
that she has received from the Lord’s hand
 double for all her sins.

The normal deceptions, are linked to these few points of view:

1. You have not read the full Bible.

This is a not excusable error among people who claim they love Jesus. They have simply not read the Bible that Jesus had. They have only read the New Testament.

2. Your pastor or priest have never taught about Israel.

Jesus do not care who you have spoken to, or what kind of deception you have walked into. You are personal responsible to be in a fellowship where the truth is spoken.


Hosea 4:6
my people are destroyed from lack of knowledge. “Because you have rejected knowledge, I also reject you as my priests; because you have ignored the law of your God, I also will ignore your children.

3. You do not believe that the Bible is the infallible word of God.

This is also a common error. Because if the Prophetic Word can not be trusted, not a single line in the Bible can be trusted. You have built your faith of a “Jesus” of your own choice.

4. Israel do so many bad things, that God can not love them

If you feel Israel are doing more mistake than others, it is time for you to take a look in the mirror.

All That Jazz

While sitting on my deck earlier this evening, I watched a savage thunderstorm gather, then dump high winds, lightning, and sheets of rain on the trees and hills.

I watched the storm for some time, as it came near.

About the same time I noticed on my phone a Twitter message from Cameron Strang. It was a photo of the Relevant magazine publisher with author Donald Miller, in Jerusalem. The whole thing intrigued me, because only a week before, I’d attended the Catalyst East conference, where thousands of young evangelical leaders met to hear speakers like Andy Stanley, Jen Hatmaker, and Lynne Hybels.

Strang was there to promote his magazine. The public didn’t know at the time that in a few short days, he would join other progressive evangelicals and members of the Religious Left for a tour of what they refer to as Israel/”Palestine.”

Miller, who wrote Blue Like Jazz a decade ago, has seen his star rise among younger, progressive evangelicals. Think of the book as sort of a Catcher in the Rye manifesto for 20-somethings who lean somewhere left of center both politically and religiously.

This is all Relevant because these individuals met up in Israel, to take part in ongoing efforts at “peacemaking,” an agenda driven largely by Hybels and her Palestinian friend, Sami Awad. The addition of Miller to the traveling party is significant, since he is listened to by growing numbers of Millennials, those who have largely abandoned their parents’ way of “doing church.” Among the things jettisoned is a commitment to support Israel.

On October 7, Miller tweeted:

“Off to Israel in the morning. Blogs are all lined up for the week. Can't wait to tell some stories when I get back. Will miss y'all.”

From that, we can expect a whole raft of “stories” which will present the Palestinian narrative against a backdrop of alleged Israeli abuses. Make no mistake, Donald Miller’s newfound interest in “Palestine” will open up a new front in the propaganda wars being waged against the Jewish state.

No one is denying that there are plenty of sincere, well-meaning people in the peacemaker movement. The problem is, they are being schooled by the Palestinians themselves. The so-called Palestinian narrative, coming in via people like Sami Awad, isn’t different from the agenda of former PLO chief Yasser Araft, in any real sense. The Palestinians then wanted to eliminate Israel any way possible; today’s “two-state solution,” “one-state solution,” etc., is simply window-dressing for the goal of eliminating the Jewish state.

Professing to be concerned about Israel’s security, while devoting every waking moment to undermining it totally is textbook disingenuity.

One can safely say that Strang, Hybels, Miller & Friends (including Todd Deatherage) will not hear about the Savoy Hotel massacre, or the Ma’a lot Massacre (a 1974 terrorist attack on an Israeli school, carried out by the so-called “Democratic Front for the Liberation of Palestine,” in which 25 hostages were killed). They won’t hear about Ron Arad, or the Fogel family.

Strang tweeted a couple days ago that he was preparing to visit an Israeli “settler’s” home. Hybels in particular has opened a clever strategy of emphasizing the balance of her visits; for example, she will talk with members of the Israeli Knesset, Palestinian families, Israeli and Arab peace activists, “settlers,” etc.

The reality is the striking imbalance of these tours/visits, because no doubt the “settlers” will make all sorts of provocative statements that the Western peace activists can use to demonstrate that these folks are extremists.

Visits are also made to Israel’s Holocaust museum, Yad Vashem. This can be useful in equating Jewish suffering at the hands of the Nazis, with that of the suffering of the Palestinians at the hands of the Israelis: the abused becomes the abuser, in other words.

Bottom line: the result of these tours—stacked with evangelical leadership from America—is that more Americans will hear subtle and overt claims that the absence of peace in the Middle East is Israel’s fault. They will hear that biblical support for Israel is illegitimate, even a “sin,” that Bibi Netanyahu loves war, that Israeli communities in the country’s heartland are illegal, etc.

This narrative is being soaked up by a generation raised on The Simpson’s, multiculturalism, appeasement, socialist/Marxist ideas, and the mocking of the Bible, among many other things.

The propaganda forces arrayed against the Israelis right now is the most sophisticated the Jews have ever seen. As I’ve been writing for some time now, a key (but greatly overlooked) front in that information war is the Evangelical community in America. Pro Israel activists are waking up to this reality very late.

I invite you to read online just a few articles from Relevant magazine—www.relevantmagazine.com. If you “search” for articles about Israel/”Palestine,” you will find a leftist view of the conflict. Right now, Cameron Strang has staff members over there with him, and the reportage will be decidedly different from that of evangelicals a generation ago.

Recently, another Twitter message summed-up this strategy quite well:

Tell your story, don't preach. Your audience will know what to do with it #PearlsOfWisdom @US_PNB Entrepreneurs delegation #Palestine



Notice the emphasis on storytelling. Narrative. The dislike of “preaching.” Younger generations today don’t like to be preached-at; they’ll tell you that. They want to hear, rather, “story.” Your experience. My experience. A downtrodden people’s story.

Individual human experience, story, narrative can depart from biblical truth. I’ll give you an example.

Ten years ago, I had a lengthy email experience with one of the Palestinian leaders now educating the Blue Like Jazz generation. He finally told me that Palestinians, particularly Palestinian Christians, simply don’t like the Old Testament. Why? Because of the promises to the Jews! Keep in mind, all totalitarian regimes loathe the Bible, especially the Old Testament.

Let’s look at this another way. Let’s say that I disagree with the biblical command to love my wife as Christ loved the Church (and gave Himself for it). That isn’t my story. I like a story in which I dominate my wife and belittle her and refuse to honor her.

I just reject that part of the Bible, because it doesn’t fit the narrative I’m after.

An entire alternate reality is being created for Israel as we speak. Replacement Theology, Liberation Theology, the Palestinian narrative.

If you were the Arabs, and you’d been blown off the battlefield a few times by the Israelis, what would you do?

The Arabs aren’t stupid. They simply internalized and refined the Soviet propaganda that Arafat learned, and decided to try and defeat the Jews in the realm of ideas and principles. Arafat, who found that overt terrorism landed one in a Tunisian desert, with lizards and sand, began cultivating mainline Church officials in the 1980s and 1990s. Now, younger Palestinian leadership, even that of NGOs like Sami Awad’s Holy Land Trust, have refined the strategy and message even further.

They are influencing your kids.

When I was at Catalyst, I had 57 individual conversations with attendees. I asked them about their views of Israel and the Palestinians. Not one advanced what I’d call a pro Israel view. Yet when I asked them for specifics: can you tell me why you believe Israel’s communities (“settlements” are illegal and illegitimate? Do you know why the security fence was erected? Do you know what the ’67 borders are? The 1949 Armistice Lines?

Not a single young person I asked could answer the questions. They could only tell me that IDF soldiers detain pregnant Palestinian women at checkpoints, and that Israel would not engage in serious peace talks with the Palestinians. Curiously, when I asked them how they knew that, they told me that’s what Lynne Hybels, Shane Claiborne, Tony Campolo, and Jim Wallis say.

Don Miller might be the most sincere guy of all time. Lynne Hybels might believe everything she’s spreading about peacemaking in the Middle East. It’s possible Cameron Strang is attempting to use his powerful bully pulpit among young evangelicals to effect positive change.

The real question, though, is what is the Palestinian leadership up to in this regard? Said another way, who is telling the truth in this…story?

When one considers the Palestinian leadership’s agenda, coupled with the interconnectedness of America’s young evangelicals, one must face up to the fact that the image of Israel in the United States is heading in a darker direction.

In Blue Like Jazz, Miller wrote about—and made famous—“Mark, the Cussing Pastor.” This refers to Mark Driscoll, of Seattle’s Mars Hill Church. Driscoll’s often profane, provocative approaching to preaching had made him a hit with Millennials.

Recently, Driscoll taught from the book of Esther. At one point, he said that there are no miracles in the book!

There are no miracles, because Driscoll and his legion of friends minimize the role of Israel in the Bible. Whole generations have now been raised on biblical minimalism, moral relativism, and totalitarian propaganda.

Targeting America’s young evangelical leadership is the smartest the thing the other side has done in decades.

That’s why a seemingly winsome chap like Donald Miller can travel to a place called Palestine, and believe he just experienced reality.

The Innovators

My friend Marcella Rosen sent me an advance copy of her new book, Tiny Dynamo: How One of the World’s Smallest Countries is Producing Some of Our Most Important Inventions.

The subtitle isn’t tiny, and neither is the sum of what the Israelis are producing in the field of burgeoning technologies.

It’s astonishing, really.

While certain groups, individuals, and states are busy thinking up ways to kill them, the Israelis are making the world a better place for all of us. I cannot over-emphasize how remarkable their achievements are.

For example, in Tiny Dynamo, we read about medical breakthroughs, drip irrigation techniques, and efforts to prevent SIDS. These projects, and many others, are staggering in their implications. And again, the Jewish state is achieving this while also shooting from behind barriers.

With regard to hospital infections, wrap your mind around this statistic: every year, one million people around the globe die from hospital infections. In the U.S., very surprisingly, 90,000 people die from infections!

Now consider that while there are myriad reasons for this (unsterilized instruments, for example), Israelis have determined that a key culprit is…textiles. Listen to this:

“But the biggest culprits couldn’t be more mundane: Pajamas. Sheets. Pillowcases. Gowns. Curtains.”

Turns out that such are carriers of bacteria that produce the deadly infections. Turns out that Aharon Gedanken is on the case, and has developed “a method for making anti-bacterial fabrics” that he believes will reduce such infections.

And while an increasingly desperate Barack Obama throws the kitchen sink at the electorate, by promising “alternative energy initiatives,” the Israelis are actually doing something about it.

The rest of the book is equally fascinating, and I can’t wait for it to come out. Israelis are doing lots of other things in the way of improving life.

A recent Jerusalem Post article revealed a funding source for important research:

“Scientists across Israel will be receiving portions of a $15 million gift to develop solar energy and biofuels research, in a project overseen by the Weizmann Institute of Science and the Technion- Israel Institute of Technology.



“Dispensed over the course of three years, the $15m. will fund the work of scientists developing renewable energy from a variety of fields, initially focusing on biofuels, photovoltaics and optics for light harvesting, according to information from the Weizmann Institute.”

Most people are unaware of the enormous benefits to mankind that have come from Israeli ingenuity. From cellphones to alternative energy, Israel is a bright shining light.

That makes her numerous enemies’ murderous goals all the more shameful.

Re: Make sure you love Israel


Our Father in Heaven in Yahshua, I pray openly this time for Your interference in US election result.

I pray that You will only appoint a person who bows to Your commandment for living in holiness and I pray that person would support the integrity of the Bible and core values of Christianity.

More importantly, I pray for Your intervention in US Election so that a person chosen to the US President will be one who loves Israel, who stand for Israel and who cares of what the Bible said and prophecied about Israel.

I pray that Your Words of Prophecies comes true and declare whomever stands against Your prophecies will be against You directly and thus be under Your consideration as enemies of the Kingdome.

I pray that prophecies concerning Israel to be back as Your children from being lost will be fulfilled now and I pray also that whomever against Israel will be humiliated and defeated but whoever stands supporting Israel spiritually and financially that Israel will be able to regain the whole Holy Land promised by You Yourself will be blessed beyond understanding.

Let it be done as it has been done in the Heaven. Let Your glory comes and fulfill the US and entire earth will rejoice for death has been defeated and hell has been thrown down under the feet of Our Majestic Lord Yahshua.

Let all the enemies of Yahshua be destroyed by Yahshua Himself for this is the time for the Kingdom of Heaven to defeat the Evil. Take care all of us and remember us for I and my family supporting Israel and pray for glory of Yahshua upon the land of America.

In Yahshua Ha Mashiah, I pray.

Baruch Atah Adonai Eloheinu Melech Haolam, Bashem Yahshua.
Amen.

Permanent War

I am sitting on a balcony, overlooking the Old City of Jerusalem. I hear a cacophony of birds, bells, and car horns. The sun has come up, and I watch, as it now bathes the walls of the Holy City in gorgeous light.

There is no place like this place.

I sat the other morning with my computer and noted quickly that gloom still hangs over our White House, for another four years. Being in Israel, though, I am reminded time and again of the times in which we live, and how certain we can be that God alone is the architect of history.

Last night, I had the great pleasure of attending synagogue with a friend from Efrat, between Bethlehem and Hebron. We then enjoyed a Shabbat dinner I will not forget.

My friend and his wife have five daughters and one son, and they are living out their magnificent lives as Jews in the sovereign state of Israel. He noted this, and while he is a social liberal, he and I connect because we both understand what a miracle they are.

Just before sundown, he drove me through Efrat and showed me two places where homicide bombers entered the city a few years ago. One simply crossed through a field, from a neighboring Palestinian village, asked two ambulance drivers where he could buy cigarettes, then detonated as they pointed to a supermarket.

I have been attending a conference, and was pleased to meet Malcolm Lowe and his wife, the peerless Petra Heldt. They are pro Israel Protestants who work tirelessly to advocate for Israel. Malcolm’s recent essay for the Gatestone Institute (http://www.gatestoneinstitute.org/3430/gary-burge-wheaton-college) is simply brilliant. Malcolm has used a term, “permanent war,” to describe what is going on here regarding Palestinian propaganda.

It is an accurate description.

I will tell you, however, that miracles are so commonplace here (is that a contradiction? Probably.), one wonders why the Religious Left in America misses it on so grand a scale.

In Efrat in 2002, a bomber (who had been working on a construction project there) crossed over into the city on the eve of Shabbat. He entered a crowded supermarket as people shopped for dinner that evening. On a warm March day, he was wearing a long overcoat. He was going to kill a lot of people.

An Efrat resident happened to see him enter, and recognized him. Two things: A) no Palestinian had a reason to be there on Shabbat and B), more obvious, the overcoat. He opened his coat and pressed the detonator, as so many Hamas zombies had done before.

Nothing.

His bomb belt didn’t detonate.

The fellow who knew him raised his pistol and shot the guy dead.

The bleeding-heart, faux-humanitarians who visit Israel in order to go home and bash the Jewish state after consuming a week-long diet high in propaganda calories are morally bankrupt. They willfully refuse to acknowledge the Jews’ historic right to the land, and they are dismissive of efforts by Israelis to preserve their lives in the midst of a barbaric enemy.

My friend and his family laughed and talked and sang last night, around the table. They are living witnesses to the majesty and power of the living God.

This war is permanent until it ends. This morning I am full of contradictions. Yet I know that while the world waits with high anticipation for the end of the Jewish state, Israel’s glory is ahead of her. The war will end one day, and, to hugely paraphrase the Rolling Stones, Israel will discard the dead flowers her enemies have handed her, while she places flowers on their grave.

The Six-Week War

Now that the death cult Hamas has decided to go out Bonnie and Clyde-style, word comes that Israel’s leadership is preparing for a two-month engagement. Let us all fervently pray that they completely destroy the terror entity that has plagued the region (including the Palestinians) for a quarter-century.

Others are writing very good reports on the fighting thus far—hundreds of rockets have landed in Israel, including Tel Aviv and Jerusalem! The Hamas stockpiles are such that until the IDF gathers its full strength, some damage will be done. I left one friend’s home in Jerusalem last week to travel to another in Efrat, and I passed the Gush Etzion turn.

At least two rockets landed in Gush Etzion yesterday, with other reports that they landed in Jerusalem as well. You can’t imagine how small the country is if you haven’t been there. Imagine driving from Richardson, Texas, to Plano. Culver City, California, to Glendale. Washington D.C., to Silver Spring, Maryland.

What I want to spotlight this week at “Israel Watch” is the unfolding propaganda war, equally vicious and important. Within 48 hours of the terror war launched against Israeli civilians by Hamas, Israel’s tiny window of goodwill began to predictably shrink. Among those leading the charge—and I find this repulsive and ghastly in the extreme—are religious leaders in the West.

(An aside: as war raged in the Middle East, and much of the world burns, Rick Warren Tweeted more of his PDL pablum: 11/17/12, 5:09 AM

Like a great movie, for the story of your life to be great requires a great #character.)

On Facebook, I urged Christian Palestininiasts Lynne Hybels, Tony Campolo, Sami Awad, Shane Claiborne, Bob Roberts Jr., Joel Hunter, John Ortberg, Gary Burge, Jim Hanon, Bill Oechsler, Todd Deatherage, Jim Wallis, Porter Speakman Jr. to speak out unequivocally about the terror war against Israel. Hybels did on Twitter, after I asked her if she would.

I haven’t checked all those mentioned above, but it highly unlikely they can bring themselves to condemn this barbarism against the Jews, without shoving a word like “occupation” or “settlements” into the statement.

On the contrary, Deatherage and Roberts were quite predictable in their social media comments; the following are via Twitter:

Todd Deatherage (@ToddDeatherage)

11/16/12, 9:33 PM

Over 500 rockets fired at Israel; over 500 airstrikes on Gaza; Israeli cabinet approves calling up 75,000 reservists including Telos friends

Bob Roberts Jr. (@bobrobertsjr)

11/16/12, 10:03 PM

Push our leaders to deal w/crisis in Israel/Palestine - or get ready to send your sons & daughters to a 60 year unresolved conflict

Bob Roberts Jr. (@bobrobertsjr)

11/16/12, 10:00 PM

2 states - Palestine & Israel - Everybody agrees & knows it - Netanyahu / Abbas / Obama do it NOW! delay = death - why wait???? Be LEADERS

Do you see what’s going on here? Deatherage, being the savvy and trained communicator he is, has injected the old tactic of “moral equivalency” into this story.

Deatherage wants you to focus on the fact that the sides are trading equal blows. Another way to put this will be to number the Palestinian deaths vs. the Israeli deaths. Hybels also engaged in a bit of this moral equivalency yesterday, but as I point out in these situations: who is responsible for this carnage? Why have their been hundreds of Israeli airstrikes?

And, please notice this important point: Deatherage does not reveal in his Tweet that Israel is launching surgical strikes against Hamas leadership. No, he would have you believe (as many of his friends and followers do) that both sides are pounding the others’ innocents. Let’s call that what it is: a lie.

Next, we see that Bob Roberts Jr., pastor of the megachurch NorthWood Church in Keller, Texas, evidently graduated from the Barbra Streisand School of International Diplomacy. From time to time, Streisand feels it necessary to call into question the foreign policy moves of various Republican presidents. Never mind the fact that she doesn’t know what she’s talking about.

Roberts, too, is so enamored of his Muslim friends, who feed him generous helpings of their own propaganda, that he advocates policies that are insane and unworkable.

By the way, Roberts is a major figure in evangelical leadership circles in America, which should scare the daylights out of the rest of us. This is leadership in 2012 Christian America?

And what is Sami Awad posting on his Facebook page, as a major regional war started by Palestinians is going on outside his bedroom window?

Well, a few minutes ago, he posted a greeting-card-type affirmation from something called “Gypsy Spirit Wind”:

Laugh your heart out,

dance in the rain,

cherish the moment,

ignore the pain,

live, laugh love,

forgive and forget,

as life is too short

to be living with regrets.

Huh. Well, if one is a Christian Palestinian leader like Awad, one either endangers himself by speaking out against Hamas barbarism, or one keeps his trap shut and lets the propaganda flow. That’s when statements condemning the satanic-level violence of Hamas are never issued and in their place, New Age pablum reigns.

Indeed, the peerless Dexter Van Zile (www.camera.org) Tweeted the following to Awad yesterday:

When will @holylandtrust Protest Hamas rockets in Manger Square? @Sami_Awad

If you hold your breath waiting for Awad or any of his Religious Left friends in America to answer, you’ll be dead within minutes.

The point to all this is, if you are a supporter of Israel, or simply a supporter of basic human rights, you must realize that not only is there a war raging with bullets and bombs, but one for minds and hearts.

Do not be duped by the Left. Speak out for Israel and for our own country, both to date impregnable fortresses for freedom worldwide. With the re-election of an anti-American president, and with jihad spreading around the globe, we are in for the vicious fight of our lives.

And may God continue to bless Israel!

God and Magog



I’ve heard the question hundreds of times.

“Could this be Gog/Magog?” asks a sincere student of Bible prophecy. He or she is referring, of course, to the very famous passage in Ezekiel 38-39, in which a regional war confederation invades Israel, only to be supernaturally destroyed by the Almighty.

My answer is usually, “I don’t know.”

The question has surged in recent weeks, since Israel was attacked by Hamas rockets from Gaza. Almost 900 fell in Israel, and several people were killed.

Now comes word that Hezbollah has pledged to use its arsenal against Israel in a future confrontation with Hamas; the Gazan terror group has improved its long-range capability and for the first time in history, hit Jerusalem with rocket fire.

The issue of Hezbollah’s rocket arsenal is quite problematic for Israel. When the Jewish state built a security fence (“apartheid wall” to Religious Left Jew-haters), the scourge of homicide bombers was halted.

Rockets were the terrorists’ answer.

Iran sent Fajr-5 rockets to the killers in Gaza, and continual efforts are made to upgrade the terrorist arsenal on Israel’s doorstep.

There is another interesting development, however, courtesy of the Meir Amit Intelligence Center:

"It is our assessment that the exposure of the Iranian military assistance, including the Fajr-5 rockets provided to the terrorist organizations, reflect Iran’s deep frustration with the way Egypt and its allies (Turkey and Qatar) are taking charge of the mediation efforts to stop the fighting, turning Cairo into a venue for the talks. These

countries, in Iran’s view, take a patronizing approach to the Palestinian problem, benefit politically and publicity-wise, and take away Iran’s credit for the massive military assistance it has provided to Hamas and the PIJ and which has allowed them to fight against Israel.”

What this tells us is that while the terror threat against Israel is real and serious, the jihadists also never miss an opportunity to shoot themselves in the foot. Time and again, whether it was Nasser’s disastrous meddling in the Six Day War, or internal conflict between Hamas and Fatah, these terror entities see their goals of destroying the Jewish state thwarted because focus is lost.

I put a great deal of stock in Israel’s ability to defend herself. I also put stock in the Muslim capacity for self-destruction.

But my greatest safeguard is that the Lord has promised unequivocally that He will defend and preserve Israel.

We worry about rockets from Lebanon and Gaza, after we worried about homicide bombers. No doubt many worry about Iran’s nuclear threat.

Yet we forget history—even recent history.

So, just as He confused Israel’s enemies in the ancient past, so too are they being confused again. Here is more from the Meir Amit report:

“Ibrahim al-Amin, an important Lebanese commentator close to Hezbollah who is frequently interviewed by Al-Manar TV, published an article criticizing Hamas for not giving Iran and Syria credit for the military assistance they had given it. The article also notes that the damaged military infrastructure needs to be rebuilt (i.e., with

the assistance of Iran and Syria). The following are the main points of the article, published in the Lebanese newspaper Al-Akhbar, considered to portray Hezbollah’s views (Al-Akhbar, November 20, 2012).”

Once again, I have to say that I don’t believe we should focus so very much on our obsessions with the timing of Gog/Magog; we will know it when it happens.

What we should focus on is the majesty and sovereignty of the Living God, who will preserve His people without question.

God will take care of Magog. He has before.

Steady

I’m working, and not watching the UN speeches regarding the Palestinians’ bid for nation status. I am however monitoring social media, and the reactions from pro Israel folks who are rightly revolted over the unjust speeches, and in the growing discomfort with a legitimized Palestinian entity.

We should not worry, though.

A few weeks ago, while driving near the Golan Heights, I saw one of what I believe were 2-3 tanks Israel had at its disposal during the harrowing months following the declaration of statehood in 1948. No matter how you or any revisionist slices it, the young Jewish state faced overwhelming odds in struggling to survive. (Footnote: the aforementioned tank sits under some trees on a kibbutz, a cool reminder of those momentous days.)

I submit that we are looking at similar odds now, but our perceptions are skewed.

Certainly, the international community—cowardly and immoral as it is—not only will cave to bizarre and unjust Arab demands, but the community actually likes the inversion of the truth, since it participates in it. Global media, political operatives, and religionists fall over themselves in efforts to advance evil in our world.

That’s exactly what they’re supposed to do.

God told us a long time ago pretty much exactly what’s going to happen. Why are we shocked and saddened to see these days arrive? If the Word of the Lord is true, it had to be this way.

Those of us who love and support Israel for biblical reasons should not be weak-kneed and wavering now. We should be exhilarated. I don’t need to stem the tide or try and halt the advance of those who are determined to destroy Israel. First, because they can’t.

Secondly, because I can’t.

God alone writes history. He has written corporate history and your history. He knew how Caleb and Joshua would respond in Canaan. He knew how many Panzer divisions Hitler would throw at Europe. He knew that a gaggle of mendacious, malevolent religionists in the last days would fulfill prophecy by clicking their teeth at Israel and shaking their fists at Zion (see Sizer, Stephen).

He isn’t surprised and we shouldn’t be, either, of all people.

As a matter of fact, as the world collectively loses its mind and individuals prepare to head into an emotional abyss, the remnant should be leaning against a tree somewhere, looking at their nails and watching calmly, lest someone should ask them why they are calm, and be saved.

That is our mandate.

Over a week ago, popular “evangelical” author Donald Miller wrote and published the most tendentious hit-piece against Israel I’ve ever read by someone who isn’t a Muslim. I mean, the whole thing is soaked in anti-Jewish poison.

Miller, after a few hours of the posting, removed a passage that—insanely—alleged that Benjamin Netanyahu is guilty of more deaths than terrorists!

Miller also alleged, with zero documentation, that Israel—please sit down as you read this—controls the caloric intake of Gazans.

Why am I telling you this?

Because, despite the faux-intellectual protests and catcalls from the “careful thinkers” in Evangelicalism (think historian Mark Noll, the editorial staff of Christianity Today, entire publishing houses, Brian McLaren, Tony Campolo, Sojourners, Relevant magazine, et cetera), Bible prophecy is supremely, acutely relevant and upon us, right now.

God told us men would hate Zion in the last days.

In Zechariah, we are presented with an almost unbelievable scenario in which the entire world will throw itself and its hate at Israel.

This attack will be repelled, with cataclysmic results for the invaders.

The issue is this: either one believes this is future history, or one does not.

I believe it is. I also don’t care who thinks I’m a nut for thinking so. It doesn’t matter.

The only thing that matters is that someone is wrong, and someone is right, and we are awfully close to finding out who is right and who is wrong.

Let me add more evidence to the pile.

Earlier this week, British activist Stephen Sizer Tweeted YouTube videos alleging that Israelis dump sewage into Palestinian lands.

I personally checked out this smelly story, and will soon be publishing a report on it. Suffice to say: Sizer is caught with his factual pants down.

Mendacity gazes at Zion.

So, to repeat: if we see the whole world mobilizing against Israel, what should we expect? The UN, terrorists, mass murderers, pagan Europeans, pastors—pastors!—are aligning against the Jewish state.

Was this not supposed to happen?

I would say to you, remember what Moses said to the Israelites as they huddled in fear at the approaching Egyptians:

“Stand still, and see the salvation of the Lord.”

This mendacity that is causing such fear in the ranks of the remnant is but for a little while.

I for one believe God. I believe Israel’s glory is ahead of her. Some of us will see it.

What a great, great time to be alive!

Follow Me

I rarely use “Israel Watch” to ask for personal favors, but when you hear what I’m asking, you’ll realize it’s as much for you as for me.

In the spring, my friend Benzion Netanyahu passed away. The patriarch of this great Israeli family—sons Jonathan, Benjamin, and Iddo—was a world-class historian. For those of you who enjoy historical works and some deep reading, his Don Isaac Abravanel is mind-blowing. One of the best books I’ve ever read.

And of course, there is Entebbe: The Jonathan Netanyahu Story, about the famous hostage rescue in which “Yoni” was the only Israeli commando killed, in 1976. I often tell people it is the best book I’ve ever read, and I don’t say such things lightly.

Now comes a crowning achievement. A new film, “Follow Me,” has been produced that chronicles the life of Yoni Netanyahu, with special emphasis on the Entebbe mission. I’ve already watched it three times, and it is quite riveting.

One of the most professionally produced documentaries I’ve ever seen, “Follow Me” features interviews with the Netanyahu family, including Iddo and his wife, Daphne. The interviews with Benjamin are quite moving. It also features extensive interviews with members of Sareyet Matkal, the elite Israeli counter-terrorism unit that went to Entebbe with their commander, Yoni.

The way the producers weave the story of Yoni with the raid itself is riveting. One gets a sense of the human side of elite Israeli soldiers, while at the same time learning just what it’s like to live among implacable enemies. The whole thing is a tour-de-force, a triumph of storytelling.

You have my personal guarantee that you will be on the edge of your seat as you listen to these aging men recount that night in far-away Africa. Their words, the production values, and the story arc will leave you speechless.

I know this because in July, I attended a premier of “Follow Me” at the annual summit for Christian United for Israel (CUFI) in Washington. About 800 people jammed into a ballroom to view the film and I was astonished afterwards by the outflow of emotion from the audience members, several of whom went to the microphones during a Q&A with the production team. One woman stammered and dabbed her eyes before almost whispering, “This has changed my life…”

I’m telling you all this because, while the film is being screened at locations around the U.S., you have an opportunity to own your own copy. DVD sales just launched, and you can get your copy(ies) at www.followmethemovie.com.

Everything about this project excites me, including the involvement of my great friend, publisher Thomas Sharp. His Balfour Books imprint is partnering with the production team of “Follow Me,” and the Entebbe book is also offered.

I was fortunate to meet producer Mark Manson after the Washington screening, and his commitment to excellence is evident in every aspect of this production.

You’ve probably already guessed this, but did I mention I’m excited about this project? Thomas has informed me that a special combo pack is offered through the website: a “Follow Me” dvd and Entebbe book are offered for $29.99. You can also be the catalyst for having a screening at your church. If you’d like to do something that would really help Israel, organize a screening of this brilliant documentary.

In the strongest possible terms, I ask you to go to www.followmethemovie.com and take advantage of these special offers.

If you care about Israel, and want to get a truly unique perspective on what makes this special nation tick, dive into “Follow Me.” Read Entebbe cover-to-cover. Also, don’t forget to find out about how to have a screening at your church or civic auditorium.

Do me a favor afterwards: email me and let me know what you think.

Come on. Follow me.

Re: Make sure you love Israel

The Lord Yehovah YHWH has promised to protect Israel by Himself. He calls Israel His Beloved.

So don't risk yourselves by hating Israel and be left behind but instead loving Israel as God loves Israel and calls her My Beloved Israel.
