IDF KILLS THREE “PALESTINIAN” TERRORISTS OVERNIGHT
Overnight Wednesday into Thursday (03-09-2023) the IDF killed three “Palestinian” terrorists during an operation in the village of Jaba’, located south of Jenin in Samaria.The terrorists were members of “Palestinian” Islamic Jihad and had opened fire on the IDF from a moving vehicle. The IDF soldiers returned fire, killing the assailants, who were also in possession of explosive devices. Two of the terrorists were reported at large on suspicion of involvement in shooting attacks in the area and the third one had been released from an Israeli jail last month. No Israeli forces were injured in the exchange.
ISRAELI POLICE ORDERED ON HIGH ALERT AFTER DEADLY RAID
Israeli Police were put on high alert in Jerusalem and surrounding areas on Tuesday, 03-07-2023 following the deadly raid in Jenin that left six “Palestinians” dead. The increased alert is due to fears the “Palestinians” may seek revenge. The police announced in a statement that, “Police Commissioner Kobi Shabtai has ordered increased vigilance and a visible police presence in Jerusalem.” “It is important to note that the Israel Police are currently busy with a long series of missions to allow the general public to celebrate the Purim holiday safely all over the country,” the statement added. The move was announced hours after Israeli troops entered Jenin and surrounded a house as they hunted the suspected terrorist who killed two Israelis in this location last week. The operation ignited a gunbattle that left six “Palestinians: dead, including Abdel Fattah Hussein Kharousha, 49, the wanted terrorist. Kharousha, a Hamas member from the Askar refugee camp near Nablus, opened fire on an Israeli car driving through the town of Huwara on February 26th, killing Israeli brothers Hallel and Yagel Yaniv. “Palestinian” health officials reported that another 12 people were injured, three seriously.
IDF KILLS TERRORIST WHO MURDERED TWO YOUNG BROTHERS TEN DAYS AGO
On Tuesday, 03-07-2023, Israel Defense Forces killed the terrorist who shot at point-blank range and murdered brothers Hallel Menachem and Yagel Yaakov Yaniv near the Arab village of Hawara ten days ago. The IDF were engaged in a counter-terrorism operation in Jenin in northern Samaria when gunmen opened fire on them from a house they had surrounded. According to “Palestinian” officials, Abdel Fattah Hussein Kharousha, 49, was killed during the operation in addition to five other “Palestinians”. Kharousha was suspected of gunning down the Yanivs on Feb. 26th while they were stuck in a traffic jam near Huwara. Israeli police reported that two officers from the elite Yamam counterterrorism unit were lightly wounded during the mission and were transported to the hospital for treatment. The IDF said that soldiers fired shoulder-fired missiles at the building in which Kharousha had barricaded himself. Several riots developed as “Palestinians” threw concrete blocks and explosive devices at the IDF soldiers. According to the IDF, Israeli forces responded with crowd control measures and gunfire, injuries were identified, and two Israeli drones were downed during the mission. Two of Kharousha’s sons are suspected of involvement in the attack that killed the Yanivs and were taken for interrogation. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu stated, “our brave soldiers acted with surgical precision in the heart of the murderers’ lair. I commend them and send my best wishes for a swift recovery to our wounded. As I have said repeatedly: Whoever harms us will pay the price.” Netanyahu praised the soldiers who “eliminated the abhorrent terrorist who murdered the two wonderful brothers, Hallel and Yigal Yaniv, in cold blood.”
ISRAEL ENGAGING FOUR MUSLIM NATIONS WITH “ABRAHAM ACCORDS”
03-08-2023 The nations of Mauritania, Somalia, Niger, and Indonesia are about to engage in attempted ties with Israel. Under the Netanyahu coalition government, Eli Cohen, Israeli Foreign Minister, is currently promoting negotiations with these four nations regarding the Abraham Accords. Of course, the other “players” in this endeavor are U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken, National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan and Senior Adviser for Energy Security Amos Hochstein. Cohen met with German Foreign Minister, Annalena Baerbock, last week and requested that she assist Israel regarding the proposed agreement with Mauritania and Niger. The negotiations with Mauritania are currently in an advanced phase. Back in 1999, Israel and Mauritania had established diplomatic relations; however, Mauritania cut ties in 2008 due to that year’s Gaza war. Israel does not have a history of ties with Somalia, Niger, or Indonesia. Israel is interested in ties with Somalia due to their strategic location between the Gulf of Aden and the Indian Ocean at the Red Sea entrance. President Hassan Sheikh Mohamud of Somalia is interested in reaching out to Israel in diplomatic relations with them. Niger is a global supplier of uranium; therefore, ties to Israel could hinder the sale of the material to hostile countries, while reducing the number of nations voting against Israel in international forums. The Israeli Foreign Minister is also attempting to normalize ties with Indonesia, considered the largest economy in southeast Asia with a population of around 280 million. Indonesia’s capital, Jakarta, does not have official diplomatic ties with Jerusalem but there have been unofficial connections in trade, technology and tourism. As bible prophecy continues to unfold, the false peace of the Abraham Accords will be the springboard by which the fourth earthly kingdom is initiated. The false peace and safety is a deception folks. Keep watching for news of a third temple in Jerusalem and the confirmation of finding a red heifer without blemish. These will be very significant events toward the antichrist being revealed to the world. Stay in your bibles, stay in prayer with the LORD GOD, and do not be deceived.
Daniel 9:27 And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.
NETANYAHU CRITICIZES INTERNATIONAL ATOMIC ENERGY AGENCY DIRECTOR
On Sunday, 03-05-2023, Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu responded to the refusal of the International Atomic Energy Agency to declare Iran’s nuclear program illegal. Netanyahu labeled the refusal as “unworthy”, regarding the lack of action taken by Raphel Grossi, IAEA Director. Netanyahu asked, “Against which law?” during the Cabinet meeting on Sunday. “Is Iran, which openly calls for our destruction, permitted to defend the destructive weapons that would slaughter us? Are we permitted to defend ourselves? It is clear that we are, and it is clear that we will do so”. On Saturday, 03-04-2023, Grossi held a joint press conference with Mohammed Eslami, head of Iran’s Atomic Energy Organization. Grossi stated, “I think any attack, any military attack on a nuclear facility is outlaw(ed) – is out of the normative structures that we all abide by.” This two-day conference was a plan for the IAEA to encourage Iran to cooperate and maintain compliance with the JCPOA, the 2015 nuclear deal Iran signed with world powers. The two sides reportedly agreed to work together, and that Tehran would permit the IAEA to reinstall monitoring equipment that was removed in 2022. A quarterly IAEA report revealed that Iran is able to produce enough weapons-grade (90% enriched) uranium for a nuclear weapon in twelve days by using one-half of its current supply of 60% enriched uranium. The IAEA also detected uranium particles enriched to 83.7% in samples that were analyzed at the Fordow Fuel Enrichment Plant around the end of January 2022. The report findings determined that assemblage of a nuclear weapon could be difficult for inspectors to detect immediately if Iran were to “delay” access to the inspectors. This recent development comes several months after the United Nations General Assembly’s First Committee ordered Israel to dispose of all its nuclear weapons and place its nuclear sites under the IAEA purview. If this is the case with Israel, why is the IAEA, under the UN ordering Iran to dispose of all nuclear weapons?

WHAT DOES ALMIGHTY GOD SAY ABOUT THOSE WHO COME AGAINST ISRAEL?
Zechariah 14:12 And this shall be the plague wherewith the LORD will smite all the people that have fought against Jerusalem; Their flesh shall consume away while they stand upon their feet, and their eyes shall consume away in their holes, and their tongue shall consume away in their mouth.
DON’T CURSE THE JEWS!
ISRAEL IS THE CHOSEN NATION OF ALMIGHTY GOD!
Luke 21:20 JESUS CHRIST STATES: And when ye shall see Jerusalem compassed with armies, then know that the desolation thereof is nigh.
Realize this prophecy is unfolding right before our eyes! Throughout past generations and today, we witness all those who serve Satan desiring to steal the land of the Jewish people and destroy them. Israel is the chosen nation of ALMIGHTY GOD because JESUS CHRIST is in that lineage, of the tribe of Judah, the same tribe as King David. According to the Divine Plan of The LORD, Jerusalem is His city! In 2Chronicles 6:6 GOD’S WORD STATES: But I have chosen Jerusalem, that my name might be there; and have chosen David to be over my people Israel.
The increase of anti-Semitism is apparent worldwide, and this includes the United States. There were over 2,000 anti-Semitic crimes recorded in the United States for 2020 and this is the third highest annual total on record according to the ADL. As of 2021 about 63% of Jews living in the United States reported that they have experienced anti-Semitism over the past five years. The propaganda machine continues today with many heathens subtly disguising their prejudice. Just read the countless fake news media reports that are biased against the Jews. These carnival barkers portray Israel as bullies who are purposely attacking the Palestinians; however, the Jews are rightfully defending the land that ALMIGHTY GOD blessed them with. Many people say “never again” when discussing the holocaust, yet history is repeating itself right now and most folks have chosen to completely ignore this atrocity. GUESS WHAT FOLKS – ALMIGHTY GOD SEES EVERYTHING AND HE IS CERTAINLY NOT IGNORING IT! The U.S. is one of the largest supporters of anti-Semitism and is offering $1 million to act against Israel by reporting any human rights violations by Jews. What an abominable action on your part, United States, and shame on those responsible for this insult to the Jewish people! Any “peace treaty” or “peace accords” that the United States has deceitfully entered into is only an attempt to divide the land of Israel and make themselves look like the heroes in the process.
It is important to realize if you curse Israel then you will be cursed, according to the Holy Word of ALMIGHTY GOD! Of course, we know there are Jewish people who do not believe that their Messiah has yet come; therefore, they are still waiting for him. This is why the daily sacrifices will start again in the third temple, when antichrist is revealed to the world. Despite this fact, it is something that is between The LORD GOD and the Jewish people. The best thing we can do is witness to them if we are provided an opportunity and to pray for them if The LORD GOD places that desire on our hearts. We already know that Israel will return to ALMIGHTY GOD, and they will be reconciled to Him. In the book of Romans 11:26-27 GOD’S WORD STATES: And so all Israel shall be saved: as it is written, There shall come out of Sion the Deliverer, and shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob: For this is my covenant unto them, when I shall take away their sins.
In Genesis 12:1-3 GOD’S Word states: Now the LORD had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father’s house, unto a land that I will shew thee: And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing: and I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.
The LORD created Adam, placed him in the garden and formed Eve from Adam’s rib, but He began His chosen nation of the Jewish people with Abram, who then became Abraham. In Genesis 17:1, GOD’S Word states: And when Abram was ninety years old and nine, the LORD appeared to Abram, and said unto him, I am the Almighty God; walk before me, and be thou perfect, and Genesis 17:5 Neither shall thy name any more be called Abram, but thy name shall be Abraham; for a father of many nations have I made thee. The LORD GOD blessed Abraham and his wife Sarah with Isaac their son. This is when the nation of Israel began, not in 1948, as many people tend to believe. In the book of Matthew, chapter one, there is a complete listing of the generations of JESUS CHRIST. This begins with Abraham and Isaac,(not Ishmael, who was the son of Hagar, Sarah’s Egyptian handmaid) and ends with JESUS CHRIST. Isaac is considered the son of promise, who carried on the seed of the Nation of Israel, as we read in Hebrews 11:18 Of whom it was said, That in Isaac shall thy seed be called:
The book of Genesis provides us the lineage of the Jewish people: Abraham and Sarah begat Isaac, Isaac married Rebekah and they had twins, Jacob and Esau. In Genesis 25:22, Rebekah prays to The LORD: And the children struggled together within her; and she said, if it be so, why am I thus? And she went to inquire of the LORD. In Genesis 25:23 The LORD answers her: And the LORD said unto her, Two nations are in thy womb, and two manner of people shall be separated from thy bowels; and the one people shall be stronger than the other people; and the elder shall serve the younger. Esau came out first, followed by Jacob; Esau being the older would serve Jacob who was younger. Esau married a daughter of Ismael, the son of Hagar, Sarah’s Egyptian handmaid, and Jacob married within the lineage of the Jewish people. This was the beginning of the Two Nations that The LORD spoke to Rebekah about and this is why the Palestinians are constantly trying to take away Israel’s land. What about “Palestine”? The Roman emperor Hadrian reigned from 117-138 AD. and rebuilt the ruins of Jerusalem. He changed the name of the city to Aelia Capitolina (after his own family name Aelia and one of his pagan gods. After the Jewish revolt under Bar Kochba, Hadrian forbade Jews to set foot there. Hadrian also changed the name of the land from Judea to Palestine, after the ancient people called the Philistines, who were the Jews’ main enemy in the time of King David. There were no longer any Philistines in Hadrian’s time but his purpose in changing the name was not to be historically accurate, but to disconnect the land from the Jews in the public memory and discourage them from ever mounting another rebellion. The group of people who call themselves Palestinians are considered to be Arabs.
The land has already been promised to the Jewish people from The LORD GOD and there is nothing the Palestinians can do about that! EVER! In the book of Genesis 35:10 The LORD speaks to Jacob: And God said unto him, Thy name is Jacob: thy name shall not be called anymore Jacob, but Israel shall be thy name: and he called his name Israel.
Jerusalem: Mount of Olives

You may be asking, “if the Jewish people are The LORD GOD’S chosen people, where does that leave the rest of us”? The LORD loves all of us and is not a respecter of persons; therefore, He created us in His image. In Genesis 1:27 GOD’S Word states: So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them. It is not The LORD’S will that anyone should perish and be condemned to hell. This is why He blessed us with JESUS CHRIST, who is THE GOOD NEWS! In 2nd Peter 3:9, GOD’S WORD STATES: The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.
Because of our precious and priceless gift of JESUS CHRIST, who shed His blood on the cross for all of us, we have the gift of free will to choose Him as our Lord and Savior. In John 3:17, GOD’S Word states: For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.
The world doesn’t mean the earth, but those who are not saved and living their lives apart from JESUS CHRIST. It is important to remember that the Hebrews (the Jews) are the LORD GOD’S chosen people, but once JESUS CHRIST came and died for all of our sins, we who freely accept JESUS as our LORD and SAVIOR are granted the privilege to become part of the family of GOD once we repent and commit our lives to serve JESUS CHRIST. There is a good description of this in the book of Romans, chapter eleven. The LORD uses the example of an olive tree and branches being grafted in. There is only ONE TRUTH that exists, and that truth is in the Holy Bible. Remember the words of The LORD GOD in Genesis, chapter twelve that He will bless those who bless the nation of Israel and curse those that curse them. These are not empty words, but a powerful instruction and warning that is given to all of us.
WE ALL SHOULD DEFINITELY TAKE THIS SERIOUSLY, AS OUR ETERNAL LIVES ARE NO LAUGHING MATTER!

ISRAELI PARLIAMENTARY OFFICE IN SAMARIA EVACUATED
On 03-02-2023, the Israeli military evacuated the office in Samaria that was established by Religious Zionism Party lawmaker Tzvi Sukkot. The location of the parliamentary office was at the Evyatar outpost in Samaria. Sukkot was permitted by the IDF to temporarily set up his office there. Sukkot stated, “It’s time we returned to Evyatar.” In addition to the security steps taken against terrorism, this is the right and proper settlement answer to all those attempting to uproot us from the Land of Israel,” he added. Sukkot continued, “This is one stone on the way to our complete return to the community, as was agreed and as must be.” On Monday (02-27-2023) Israeli security forces evacuated the Evyatar outpost following the deadly terror attack that killed Israeli brothers in Huwara. In reponse to the attack, a group of approximately 450 Jews entered the outpost on Sunday. Sukkot, one of the founders of Evyatar, spent the night at the abandoned outpost, and visited his old home, which he found had been destroyed. The outpost of Evyatar was established in 2013 as a tent encampment and has been repeatedly evacuated over the years. In May 2021, in response to the killing of Yehuda Guetta, 19, who was shot at a bus stop by a “Palestinian” terrorist not far from the community, the area was more formally established. In July 2021, 53 families vacated Evyatar under an agreement struck with the government that allowed for the village to remain intact and under permanent supervision of the IDF. In return, the government vowed to carry out a survey of the land in order to determine its status. If the land is determined to belong to the state, the government agreed to immediately establish a yeshiva in Evyatar and subsequently allow a permanent civilian presence. A yeshiva is a traditional Jewish educational institution focused on the study of Rabbinic literature, while Torah and Jewish philosophy are studied in parallel. The Evyatar families have repeatedly accused the government of dragging its feet with respect to conducting the land survey.
PLOT TO ASSASSINATE BEN-GVIR ON TEMPLE MOUNT IS FOILED
On Thursday evening (03-02-2023) the Central Unit of the Jerusalem District Police along with Shin Bet, Israel’s internal security agency, arrested a “Palestinian” on suspicion that he intended to assassinate Ben-Gvir. Itamar Ben-Gvir is the National Security Minister of the Otzma Yehudit Party and has been aggressive in his intention to attack the growing wave of “Palestinian” terrorism upon Israelis. The suspect is a resident of Jerusalem and had recently met with known terrorists in a neighboring country, who paid him to carry out the murder plot. Some of the money was also intended for families of terrorists who had been arrested by Israel. The arrest was accomplished several weeks ago; however, the information has only now been made available. The suspect had gathered intelligence on Ben-Gvir, which involved stealing a license plate from a police vehicle and using it to approach the MK’s convoy. The plan was intended to be carried out during the Muslim month of Ramadan when Ben Gvir intended to visit the Temple Mount. A statement from Ben-Gvir’s office claimed that the suspect planned to carry out an additional murder of an Israeli in order to kidnap the body and use it to negotiate the release of “Palestinian” convicts incarcerated in Israeli jails. Ben-Gvir stated, “I am thankful for the security forces and the police officers that protect me and my life.” “I will not be scared off by attempts to harm me, and I will continue to work toward a strong right-wing security policy, defeat terrorism and return security and governance to the streets.” Ben Gvir is supporting a bill that calls for the death penalty for terrorists. The bill, part of a coalition agreement reached with PM Benjamin Netanyahu, states that someone who kills an Israeli citizen “out of racism or hostility to their group… and aiming to harm the State of Israel and the renewal of the Jewish people in their land, shall be sentenced to death, and this penalty only.” The bill, intended to act as a deterrent to terrorism, was approved by the Ministerial Committee on Legislation on Sunday. The prosecutor’s office is expected to file an indictment against the suspect next week, charging him with contacting a foreign agent and terrorist activity.
FIRST EVER ISRAELI – ARAB – AFRICA SECURITY CONFERENCE IN JERUSALEM
In March 2023 the Holy City of Jerusalem will host the first ever Israel-Arab-Africa conference on Middle East security. Representatives of fourteen African and Arab countries will meet in Jerusalem for this landmark event that comes amid tensions between supporters of Africa and opponents of Israel. This three-day event is entitled “Trusted Regional Partnerships at a Time of Shifting Alliances,” and was organized by the Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs. Roundtable discussions of the Trump era “Abraham Accords” in 2020 will be the main focus, as well as security, anti-radicalism, and food and water security which will involve two days of visits to cutting-edge Israeli tech companies. The expected attendants will represent Bahrain, Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Ethiopia, Uganda, Djibouti, Nigeria, Ghana, Kenya, Somalia, Sudan, Somaliland, South Sudan and South Africa. Dan Diker, president of the Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs stated, “The first ever Arab-Africa Israel policy summit in Jerusalem is particularly important at a moment in the Middle East and Africa when Iran and its Hezbollah terror proxy are subverting states across the region and Africa as well.” “Israel is being sought after by its Arab and African neighbors near and far to collaborate on key issues such as food and water security at a time of regional instability, “stated Diker. Israeli Foreign Minister Eli Cohen met with the leader of Sudan’s transitional government in Khartoum. During a separate event, the Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs recently hosted a panel of South African and African American religious leaders on confronting antisemitism and the apartheid libel against Israel. Israeli Minister for Diaspora Affairs, Amichai Chikli stated, “Instead of attacking the Jews as individuals or as small communities, the assault is against the collective identity of the Jewish people and especially the State of Israel.” “This apartheid narrative is one big lie, and just like the Soviet Union, it will collapse. It won’t stand the test of time.” Make no mistake about it folks. Bible prophecy continues to be fulfilled as the false peace narrative continues, which will enslave those who allow themselves to be deceived by the great lie. This false peace will certainly usher in the antichrist, who will be charismatic, and appear to have all the answers.
Daniel 9:27 And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.
EIGHT TERRORISTS ARRESTED IN SAMARIA
Shin Bet, the Israel Security Agency, along with the IDF arrested eight terrorist suspects regarding several shooting attacks in Samaria. The shootings took place in areas assigned to the Israel Defense Forces’ Binyamin and Efraim Territorial Brigades. During its investigation, Shin Bet discovered that Belal Barghouti and Ahmed Aqel, residents of the village of Beit Rima, northwest of Ramallah, were involved in shooting attacks against IDF soldiers in the nearby village of Nabi Saleh last December 7th and January 26th. The Israeli Security Agency also discovered these suspects were involved in a shooting attack against an Israeli vehicle near the city of Rawabi on February 3rd. Also arrested were Ahmed Manasra and Alaa Manasra, residents of the Qalandiya refugee camp. According to Shin Bet, these two allegedly carried out a shooting attack on the night of January 27th directed towards the Qalandiya checkpoint. Another suspect, Ahmed Abu Arida, a resident of the Beitunia refugee camp near Ramallah, is believed to have fired towards the Beitunia checkpoint, also on January 27th. Muhammed Makhrouk and Jibril Zbeidi, residents of the Jalazone refugee camp, which is also near Ramallah, were found to have carried out a shooting attack toward the Beit El community on December 18th. Shin Bet released this statement, “The Shin Bet and the IDF will continue to work to thwart terrorist acts and bring those involved in such activities to justice.” Once the investigation has been completed, the suspects are expected to stand trial for their activities.
JEWS IN JUDEA AND SAMARIA – LIVING UNDER CONSTANT THREAT OF TERRORISM
Photo by Yonatan Sindel/Flash90
For most of the half-million Jewish residents of Judea and Samaria, the threat of terrorism is a part of their daily routine. Israeli Government data reveals 5,000 attacks were carried out by “Palestinian” terrorists in 2022. Yaakov Idels, spokesman for the community of Har Bracha in Samaria stated, “I don’t think that the people in the US understand the complicated reality of living in Samaria. “When you get in your car for the simplest reason, in your mind is the thought that you may be attacked by Palestinians for no reason at all. We have no choice but to pass through enemy territory that sits right outside our front gate.” Idels also stated, “There are times that are considered heightened alert but like any family anywhere in the world, our daily life is important to us.” “We struggle with this.” As a result of the “Oslo Accords” during the “Clinton” administration, 38% of Huwwara (“Palestinian”) land was classified as Area B, and the remaining 62% as Area C designated for settlement by Israelis. Idels stated, “Unfortunately, we have anger towards the Arabs and even hatred.” ‘There is no choice. We are in the midst of a prolonged war, and it would be immoral to deny that. There are times when it is more active and apparent, but it is always there. The Arabs have never agreed to live in peace, to coexist without trying to harm us. They are very clear about this.” Following the recent terror attack that killed two brothers, ages 19 and 21, dozens of Israelis responded by entering Huwwara and rioting, burning cars and houses, and throwing stones at vehicles. One Arab was killed in the clashes. Rather than call attention to the “Palestinian” violence, the international community responded by criticizing Israel and equating the rioting with the terror attack.
Idels stated, “I understand the response and the emotions behind it.” “It would be inhuman to respond to murder with apathy. But there is a great danger in people taking the matter into their own hands. The response has to produce useful results and not act simply as a release of anger.” “As a community, we do not support these actions,” he emphasized. Idels strongly believes the solution to the situation is quite simple. “Israel needs to establish sovereignty over Judea and Samaria,” he said. “This is an unequivocal and clear statement that makes clear how all sides can move forward. The Palestinians have been fed a lie that the Jews will someday be leaving. That is not the case. As soon as they realize that they will have to live with us, they will act differently.” “Israel is a country with laws,” said Idels. “By saying that Israel does not exist in Samaria, the Arabs believe that the laws do not apply and that they can murder with impunity. The PA pays them for this. The Arabs need to understand that Israel is a country that has laws.”
Another resident, Seth Mandell, moved his family to Efrat in 1996 and soon after settled in Tekoa, which is in Judea. His son, Koby, was murdered by “Palestinians” in 2001 during a hike. “When we first arrived, Tekoa was an intimate community, but it has really grown since we moved here, thanks to a new road that makes us essentially a suburb of Jerusalem,” Mandell said. “Except for a few attempts to infiltrate the security fence, there has never been an attack inside the town. The threat is only really felt on the roads. There’s nothing you can do about it but that is when you try to be more careful.” “Some roads are more dangerous, and some periods of time are more dangerous,” Mandell said. “You do the best you can, but we have to live our lives.” Mandell explained that Tekoa is surrounded by Arab villages which are unsympathetic to Jews living in the region, but he feels safe when he is close to home. “Samaria somehow seems scarier to me,” Mandell admitted. “We drive past the Arab villages but are not permitted to enter.” “There are big signs warning us not to enter the Arab villages, that it is dangerous for Jews to enter Arab villages. But during the day, there are Arabs inside Tekoa, working in construction. They are our neighbors but not really. There is a relationship, but it has clear limits and is one-sided.” Mandell explained that the road to Jerusalem is considered safe; however, other roads in the area are a higher risk. “We live here for lifestyle reasons and accept the political situation for what it is without obsessing about it,” said Mandell. “My wife is less sanguine about it, but my kids grew up here and have accepted it.”
ISRAEL PRESSES U.S. TO TAKE A STANCE AGAINST “PALESTINIAN” TERRORISM
On Friday, 02-24-2023, Yoav Gallant, Israeli Defense Minister, urged his U.S. counterpart, Lloyd Austin, to take a “decisive position” against “Palestinian” terrorism and warned of Iran’s march towards a nuclear bomb. Gallant updated Austin on Israel’s counterterrorism operation that took place on Wednesday in Nablus. Israeli forces were attacked by “Palestinian” gunmen after surrounding a terrorists’ hideout in the center of Samaria. As a result of this action, 11 “Palestinians” were killed. Austin was aware that the terrorists were responsible for shootings in Israel and were planning more attacks. While Gallant emphasized the importance of maintaining a firm position against “Palestinian” terrorism in Judea and Samaria, Austin “encouraged the de-escalation of tensions.” It does not appear that the U.S. is fully supporting Israel regarding this matter. If the U.S.were truly a “friend of Israel”, they would be one hundred percent for Israel, no exceptions.
MASSIVE CROWDS OF ISRAELIS PROTEST OVER JUDICIAL REFORM BILL
On Saturday (02-25-2023) countless numbers of Israelis took to the streets in their continued protests against the Netanyahu government’s Judicial Reform bill. In Tel Aviv, the center of the main rally, crowds were estimated to be from 130,000-160,000 and tens of thousands more around the country. A massive demonstration of about 30,000 people also took place in Haifa. The overall estimates were reported to be around 300,000 protesters, making this the largest demonstration to date. The spark that has ignited these massive protests is the Judicial Reform Bill, proposed by Yariv Levin, Israeli Justice Minister. This proposed reform bill includes an “override clause” that would enable the Knesset to reverse Supreme Court decisions to overturn legislation. In addition, this bill would also change the way judges are appointed, giving the majority on the selection committee to elected officials, and eliminate the legal justification of “lack of reasonableness. This would actually benefit and strengthen the Israeli government because the Supreme Court judges have been known to cast out perfectly legal government actions, due to the fact they appeared unreasonable to one of the justices. Actions of this nature on a regular basis continues to weaken the structure of the coalition, providing an unstable government for the state of Israel. As the main rally in Tel Aviv ended, hundreds of protesters marched down to the Ayalon Highway, antagonizing the police who attempted to prevent them from blocking the major travel route. Some demonstrators set tires and wooden planks alight on the road, causing it to be blocked for several hours. The police reported that twenty-one protesters were arrested. Law enforcement also opened an investigation into one protester seen writing graffiti on the highway calling Netanyahu a “traitor.” A few police officers were attacked and injured by violent demonstrators, including two who were bitten by rioters. National Security Minister Itamar Ben Gvir stated that the events “show that this is a protest of anarchists,” accused the demonstrators of an “illegal rampage” and said he expected police to show “zero tolerance.” Ben Gvir called on opposition leaders Yair Lapid and Benny Gantz to “immediately condemn the anarchic riot and incitement.” Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu stated, “They are intending to create anarchy in the State of Israel and to harm its economy in order to bring a sixth election,” while opposition leaders have been “silent in the face of explicit calls by protest leaders for bloodshed, use of weapons, civil rebellion, assassinating the prime minister… they just cannot accept that they lost the election.” Netanyahu said he was calling on “responsible voices in the opposition not to cooperate with this lawlessness” and instead to immediately enter “serious dialogue for the good of the citizens of Israel and the State of Israel.”
12U SUMMIT IN ABU DHABI INCLUDES ISRAEL, INDIA, UAE, AND U.S.
Ronen Levy, Israeli Foreign Ministry Director General, headed Israel’s delegation to the first in-person I2U forum on Wednesday, 02-22-2023. This summit was held in Abu Dhabi (UAE) and consisted of representatives from Israel, India, the U.S. and the UAE. Levy stated, “This forum is evidence that the fruits of the Abraham Accords and new connections between peoples and countries sharing their capabilities and know-how can contribute to prosperity in the Middle East and beyond.” The converging of these nations is a continuation of last July regarding the Abraham Accords, when they announced the alliance would cooperate on water, energy, transportation, space, health and food security. The Israeli group of forty representatives range from officials from the Economy, Energy, Agriculture, Health and Transportation ministries to their space agency. The Space Agency officials examined methods that deal with climate change. PAY ATTENTION FOLKS, FALSE PEACE IS UPON THE WORLD UNDER THE GUISE OF THE “ABRAHAM ACCORDS”. The antichrist is waiting to be revealed to the masses and will be equipped by Satan to deceive all those who do not serve JESUS CHRIST. Do not be deceived by these lies of false peace, climate change, mixing all beliefs together, and stand for the truth, found only in the Word of ALMIGHTY GOD!
1Thessalonians 5:3 For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.
NETANYAHU MEETS WITH U.S. SENATORS
On Tuesday, 02-21-2023, Benjamin Netanyahu met separately with U.S. Sens. Jim Risch and Alex Padilla to discuss the importance of Israel’s relationship with the U.S. and that America is the Jewish state’s “greatest friend.” The Israeli PM informed the senators that despite any disagreements between Jerusalem and Washington, these meetings expressed the strength of ongoing bipartisan ties with Israel. The focus of the meetings with regarding the Trump administration-brokered Abraham Accords, as well as confronting Iran and its proxies. Senator Risch introduced a bill earlier this month which aims to stop the flow of American taxpayer dollars to the UN Relief and Works Agency. This bill partners with a bill introduced by U.S. Rep. Chip Roy, entitled, The United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) Accountability and Transparency Act. The bills include reforms that would require the “Biden administration” to confirm that no UNRWA employee is a member of a terrorist organization such as Hamas or Hezbollah, or has advocated terrorist activity, or promotes anti-American, anti-Israel, or antisemitic rhetoric. Last week, Senator Risch called on Joe Biden to veto a prospective U.N. Security Council resolution demanding an immediate halt to Jewish housing plans in Judea and Samaria, saying the initiative would “not lead to peace and only furthers anti-Israel actions at the U.N.” AMERICA THE “GREATEST FRIEND” OF THE JEWISH STATE? ABSOLUTELY NOT BECAUSE AMERICA IS PUSHING A NON-BIBLICAL “TWO-STATE SOLUTION” AND DESIRES TO DIVIDE THE LAND OF ISRAEL!
ISRAELI DIPLOMAT EJECTED FROM AFRICAN UNION SUMMIT
On Saturday, 02-18-2023, a senior Israeli diplomat was ejected from the African Union’s annual summit in Ethiopia. This action was taken because an ongoing disagreement regarding Israel’s accreditation to the faction escalated. Several online images revealed AU security officers confronting Sharon Bar-Li during the opening ceremony of the summit. Israeli Foreign Minister, Eli Cohen stated, “Israel looks harshly upon the incident in which the deputy director for Africa, Ambassador Sharon Bar-Li, was removed from the African Union Hall despite her status as an accredited observer with entrance badges.” Ebba Kalondo, the spokesperson for the African Union’s commission chairman, stated Bar-Li had been removed because she was not the duly accredited Israeli ambassador to Ethiopia, the official who was expected. Israel claims South Africa and Algeria, two key nations in the 55-nation alliance, were holding the AU hostage, and were driven by “hate”. “We call on the countries of Africa to stand up against these actions that harm the Organization of the African Union itself and the entire continent,” stated Eli Cohen. South Africa rejected the claim, stating Israel’s application for observer status at the AU has not been decided upon by the bloc. “Until the AU takes a decision on whether to grant Israel observer status, you cannot have the country sitting and observing,” stated Clayson Monyela, head of public diplomacy in South Africa’s department of international relations. South Africa’s ruling party has a long history of supporting the “Palestinian” cause, and The Algerian delegation at the summit did not release a statement regarding this matter. Back in 2021, Israel had gained observer status alongside “Palestine”, and Israel was previously an observer nation in the Organization of African Unity, which the African Union succeeded.
So, where does the U.S. stand in all of this confusion? U.S. President “Biden” and Secretary of State Antony Blinken arranged to send a team to the summit, which was led by Assistant Secretary of State Molly Phee. In addition, the team from the U.S. included Johnnie Carson, former assistant secretary who now travels as Biden’s special presidential representative, as well as several senior aides. As security guards ejected Sharon Bar-Li, Blinken’s team chose to remain silent. Traitors! If the U.S. actually considered themselves to be an ally of Israel, they would have done the right thing and stepped in whenever this atrocity took place.
IDF AIRSTRIKE ON SYRIA
On late Saturday evening, 02-18-2023, the Israeli Air Force carried out an airstrike in Damascus, Syria. As a result, five people were killed and 15 others wounded in the Kafar Sousah neighborhood in the Syrian capital. In addition, the airstrike also caused heavy damage to a number of residential buildings in Kafar Sousah. Syria regularly takes credit for interception of Israeli missiles, although military analysts doubt these claims. The IDF has claimed responsibility, citing this airstrike was in response to explosives placed along the land border the State of Israel shares with Syria. The Israeli Syrian border is forty-seven miles long, causing strained relations between the two countries since the 1949 Armistice Agreements. In the past, the IDF carried out several airstrikes against suspected Iranian weapon shipments disguised as harmless products. Large weapons are thought to be smuggled through Syria on Iranian cargo airlines, which frequently land at Damascus International and the Tiyas, or T-4, airbase, outside of the central Syrian city of Palmyra. The weaponry is then believed to be stored in warehouses in the area before being transported to Lebanon.
Isaiah 17:1 The burden of Damascus. Behold, Damascus is taken away from being a city, and it shall be a ruinous heap.
U.S. FUNDED “PALESTINIAN” SCHOOL HELD CEREMONY FOR TERRORIST WHO MURDERED JEWS
On 01-30-2023, the Omariya Secondary School for Girls held a ceremony to celebrate their “hero Khairy Alqum”. This terrorist honouring service was held three days after he murdered seven Israelis and wounded three as they gathered on Shabbat in front of a synagogue in Jerusalem. The ceremony was posted on the school’s Facebook page along with poetry to lift up the terrorist. “A distinguished view of the students of the Cultural Club, a stand in solidarity with our people in Jenin camp, and a lamentation for our martyrs and hero Khairy Alqum,” the post read, according to a Facebook translation. There was also a photo posted, showing a sign declaring that the school was funded by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID). According to a 2013-2014 report, USAID sponsored initiatives at the school under the Local Government and Structural program (LGI). The school has a reputation of celebrating terrorists who murder Jews. In December 2022, a Facebook post celebrated the release of Karim Younes, a “Palestinian” terrorist that murdered an IDF soldier in 1980. Earlier that year, the school displayed photos of terrorist Ibrahim Al Nabulsi, who carried out multiple attacks against Jews and Israelis.
The story was first reported by Israeli journalist Ishay Fridman on his Twitter page. Fridman has extensively covered “Palestinian” schools that celebrate the acts of terrorists and even the terrorists themselves. “Last week we published about the brainwashing that is carried out in Palestinian educational institutions where students and teachers praise the terrorist from the Neve Ya’akov attack,” Fridman wrote on Twitter. “This week we will publish that part of this activity is done under the auspices of American funding. As the world falls deeper into spiritual darkness, the true colors of the enemies of Israel are more prominent. If the U.S. is proclaiming to be “friends” with Israel, why are they shoveling money into such a wicked cause, instead of helping out all of the American people and calling for sovereignty for the land of Israel? SHAME ON YOU, UNITED STATES, FOR SUPPORTING SUCH ATROCITIES! I CALL ON YOUR WICKED GOVERNMENT LEADERS TO REPENT AND TURN TO JESUS CHRIST, BEFORE IT IS TOO LATE FOR YOU!
KNESSET PASSES LAW TO STRIP “PAY FOR SLAY” TERRORISTS OF CITIZENSHIP
On Wednesday,02-15-2023, the Knesset passed legislation that removes the right of terrorists to Israeli citizenship. Terrorists who receive kick backs from the “Palestinian Authority” as part of Ramallah’s “pay for slay” policy will be harshly punished through this new legislation. The new law applies to Israeli citizens and permanent residents convicted of terrorism, aiding terrorism, inciting war or aiding an enemy. The Israeli Interior Minister will hold the authority to revoke citizenship and resident status after a mandatory hearing and, if citizenship is revoked, deny entry of those expelled into Israel. On Sunday, 02-12-2023, Israel’s Security Cabinet approved several counter-terrorism measures. This would include reinforcing Israel Police and Border Police units in Jerusalem and expanding operations against incitement and supporters of terrorism. These decisions were made following last Friday’s terror attack in Jerusalem’s Ramot neighborhood that claimed the lives of Yaakov Israel Paley, 6, his brother, Asher Menachem Paley, 8, and 20-year-old Alter Shlomo Lederman. On Monday, Israeli soldier St.-Sgt. Asil Sawaed, 22, died from wounds sustained earlier in the day in a terrorist attack at a checkpoint to Shuafat in eastern Jerusalem. In late January, seven people were killed and several others were wounded in a terrorist shooting attack at a synagogue in Jerusalem’s Neve Yaakov neighborhood.
ISRAELI FOREIGN MINISTER MEETS WITH ZELENSKY IN UKRAINE
On Thursday, 02-16-2023, Israeli Foreign Minister Eli Cohen met with Ukrainian President Zelensky. This is the first time an Israeli minister traveled to Ukraine since the war commenced in February of last year. The purpose of the meeting was to show solidarity as Cohen stated, “I came to say that Israel stands by Ukraine and the Ukrainian people in its difficult hour.” Cohen is scheduled to meet with Volodymyr Zelenskyy and Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba. In addition to the meeting, Cohen will also attend a ceremony for the permanent reopening of the Israeli embassy in the Ukrainian capital, and tour Babyn Yar, the location where the Nazis murdered 34,000 Jews over two days during the Holocaust. “It is impossible to remain indifferent in the face of the terrible sights and horror stories that I have heard and been exposed to here. Israel condemns any intentional harm to innocent people,” stated Cohen.
UKRAINE SUBMITS DEMANDS TO JERUSALEM REGARDING RUSSIA – RUSSIA WARNS ISRAEL
The Ukrainian government is demanding that the Israeli government issue a statement condemning Russia’s invasion and supporting Ukraine’s territorial sovereignty. It has been reported that Kyiv is also requesting approval for a loan of $500 million, and staunch support of Zelensky’s “peace plan” which calls for total withdrawal of Russian forces from Ukrainian territory, access to medical services in Israel and the joint development of missile-defense technology. Russia has previously warned Israel against arming Ukraine, after Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu considered providing military assistance to Kyiv and was willing to mediate between the two sides. U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken said that Jerusalem should be doing more to support Ukraine from a security perspective. Blinken stated, “Russia’s ongoing atrocities” underscore the importance of “providing support for all of Ukraine’s needs—humanitarian, economic and security.” Israel has refrained from providing weapons directly to Ukraine, as doing so could risk undermining the Jewish state’s security. Of course, the United States supports this proposal because it would put demands on Israel and allow more distraction throughout Jerusalem, possibly allowing enemies to “slip in” unchecked. It would also promote the false peace agenda and move the enemies of Israel one step closer to dividing her GOD-GIVEN land.
UNITED STATES CHOOSES TO IGNORE TERRORISM AGAINST ISRAELIS – PUSHES FOR DIVIDING ISRAEL’S LAND
Antony Blinken, U.S. Secretary of State says Washington is “deeply troubled” by Israel’s decision to legalize outposts in Judea and Samaria. The State Department “strongly opposes such unilateral measures, which exacerbate tensions and undermine the prospects for a negotiated two-state solution.” Blinken and all of Washington appears more concerned about the Arabs (“Palestinians”) and dividing Israel’s land than the well-being of the Jews. The Secretary of State chose to ignore the increased terrorist attacks against Jews. An Israeli border policeman died after being stabbed by a terrorist, and another terrorist stabbed and wounded an Israeli teen in the Old City. The State Department also did not mention that the Israeli Security Cabinet’s decision to legalize the communities came after a terrorist attack in Jerusalem murdered three Israelis, including children. Make no mistake about it folks, the United States is not the friend of Israel, despite some of the rhetoric they express. They are on a mission for a false peace “two-state solution” that will take away the land from the Jews that ALMIGHTY GOD blessed them with generations ago. Does anyone realize when they speak the name Israel, they are speaking about Jacob, the patriarch of the twelve tribes of Israel? This also refers to the land of Israel, the land that ALMIGHTY GOD blessed Jacob (Israel) and his descendants with thousands of years ago. In the eyes of ALMIGHTY GOD, this fact will never change!
In the book of Genesis 35:10 ALMIGHTY GOD STATES: And God said unto him, Thy name is Jacob: thy name shall not be called any more Jacob, but Israel shall be thy name: and he called his name Israel.
HOUTHI YEMEN UNIVERSITIES INDOCTRINING STUDENTS WITH ANTI-SEMITISM
The Republic of Yemen, a country in western Asia. is situated on the southern end of the Arabian Peninsula, bordering Saudi Arabia to the north, Oman to the northeast, and shares maritime borders with Eritrea, Djibouti, and Somalia. There is a strong Islamist militant and political movement poisoning this country called the “Houthi Movement”, a.k.a. “ansar allah”. They identify as supporters of God. NO, allah IS NOT THE NAME FOR ALMIGHTY GOD; THEREFORE, allah IS NOTHING BUT A FALSE god. The people of this country have been suffering in the midst of a civil war that was ignited in 2014, when Houthi insurgents—Shiite rebels with links to Iran and a history of rising up against the Sunni government—took control of Yemen’s capital and largest city, Sana’a, demanding lower fuel prices and a new government. In the midst of this civil war, university students in Houthi-controlled areas are being forcibly indoctrinated with anti-Semitism and then sent to fight Israel and all allies of Israel on the front lines. A course taught by DFA brainwashed instructors is called “The Conflict with the Israeli Enemy,” and is mandatory for all students working toward a bachelor’s degree in public and private universities. The universities in northern Yemen are under the control of the DFA. The required textbook for this course uses verses from the Koran regarding Jews and Christians and portrays them in a negative context; therefore, mobilizing Muslims against their followers. A professor at one of the universities is concerned the forced indoctrination of these young students could produce an entire generation who wholeheartedly support any ideas presented to them, without thinking for themselves. Hatred is as old as sin and the LORD’S Word tells us there is nothing new under the sun. Justice will be served upon the enemies of Israel in the perfect timing of ALMIGHTY GOD. Please continue to pray for these young people who are being used as pawns in a game where there is no winner. Also, from some of the comments I have received from young people in the United States, it is apparent that anti-Semitism indoctrination is going on in full force throughout this country as well. I encourage you to continue to pray for the peace of Israel and for the Jewish people. Remember folks, the Jews are not our enemy. The only true enemy we have is Satan, the enemy of our souls and the father of lies!
ISRAEL LEGALIZES NINE OUTPOSTS IN JUDEA AND SAMARIA
On Sunday, 02-12-2023, Benjamin Netanyahu’s office has confirmed their plans to legalize nine outposts in Judea and Samaria. This action will be a strong response for two recent terror attacks in Jerusalem that killed 10 Israelis. Of course, the antichrist United Nations has attempted to rewrite history and renamed this area “the west bank”. NOT ACCORDING TO ALMIGHTY GOD! The Israeli Security Cabinet, headed by Itamar Ben-Gvir, decided to turn nine illegal outposts in Judea and Samaria into new settlements. They also plan to connect other illegal outposts to state owned infrastructure, such as water and electric, and construct thousands of new housing units in the settlements. Finance Minister Bezalel Smotrich reported the Cabinet decided to approve plans and building permits for 10,000 new housing units within the settlements. This landmark decision marks the first legalization of illegal outposts by the Israeli government since 2012. In addition, the outpost legalization will be the first time since the Netanyahu government has been sworn in that new building within the settlements has been approved. The Israeli ministers also discussed the increasing number of terror attacks in Judea, Samaria, and East Jerusalem. As a result, they have decided to expand the police presence throughout the “Palestinian” neighborhoods in East Jerusalem, according to the Prime Minister’s office. Prime Minister Netanyahu has clarified the operations will focus on those involved in terrorism without any collective punishment.
The Israeli government notified the “Biden” administration in advance of announcing their decision. Minister for Strategic Affairs Ron Dermer contacted U.S. Ambassador to Israel Tom Nides and White House Middle East coordinator Brett McGurk regarding the matter. The “Biden” administration made it clear it opposes any attempts made by Israel that would hinder plans for a “two-state solution”. The State Department and the White House did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
ANYONE WHO SUPPORTS A “TWO-STATE SOLUTION” IS AN ENEMY OF ISRAEL AND ENEMY OF ALMIGHTY GOD!
ISRAELI RESCUE MISSION FOR EARTHQUAKE VICTIMS
In the aftermath of two devastating earthquakes across Turkey and Syria, more than 4,300 people have been killed. Israel has dispatched two teams of rescuers who have arrived in Turkey to provide assistance to the victims. Over five thousand buildings have been flattened as a result of the 7.8 and 7.7 magnitude quakes that struck hours apart, originating on the Turkish Syrian border. The tremors were reported to be felt throughout Turkey, Syria, Cypress, and Israel, even setting off earthquake warnings in the central region of Israel. Hundreds of aftershocks are shaking buildings as rescuers are attempting to free people trapped beneath the rubble. Following a request for help from the Turkish authorities, The Israel government responded to a request for help from Turkish authorities, held an emergency meeting, and dispatched a team of medical and search and rescue experts. Israel’s Defense Minister, Yoav Gallant stated, “The security forces are ready to offer any assistance that is required.” Israel’s President Isaac Herzog announced, “On behalf of the Israeli people, I am deeply saddened by the enormous disaster that has befallen Türkiye following last night’s earthquake. My condolences to President Erdoğan and the Turkish people for the loss of life and destruction of livelihoods.” “The State of Israel always stands ready to assist in every way possible. Our hearts are with the grieving families and the Turkish people at this painful moment,” added President Herzog.
MUSLIM STRUCTURES ON TEMPLE MOUNT “FALLING DOWN”
On Tuesday, 02-07-2023, Arab media reported that pieces of mosaic tile containing anti-Christian verses from the Koran began falling off the facade of the Temple Mount in Jerusalem. The cause is attributed to heavy rain in Jerusalem the day before, and tremors from the earthquake that devastated Turkey and Syria was also felt in the city. The enemies of Israel blamed the incident on “the occupation’s [Israel’s] prevention of restoration work inside the mosque.” Similar incidents occurred a few months ago when stones fell in the interior of the Aqsa Mosque, the gray domed structure at the southern end of the Temple Mount. Also back in August, stones fell from a column adjacent to the Prophets Gate, also known as the Double Gate, one of the permanently closed gates along the Southern wall. The mosaics on the interior of the Dome of the Rock are a Koranic (19:33-35) rejection of the divinity of Jesus Christ.
The current shrine, constructed in 692 A.D. by the Umayyad Caliphate on the orders of Abd al-Malik on the site of the Jewish Temple, is the oldest Muslim structure in existence. The building was severely damaged by earthquakes in 808 and again in 846. The dome collapsed in an earthquake in 1015 and was rebuilt in 1022–23. The mosaics on the drum were repaired in 1027–28. The earthquake of 1033 resulted in the introduction of wooden beams to enforce the dome. Parts of the Dome of the Rock collapsed during the 11 July 1927 earthquake, and the walls were left badly cracked. Before the Dome of the Rock, a temple to the pagan god Jupiter was built at the site of the Jewish temple by the Roman Emperor Hadrian around 130 CE. Tuvia Sagiv, an architect who has studied the Temple Mount extensively, noted that both the Temple of Jupiter in Baalbek, Lebanon which is still standing today, and the Islamic buildings we see on the temple mount were almost an exact match in both design and scale. He theorized that the Muslim structures were based closely on the pagan temple. Though nothing remains of the original pagan temple in Jerusalem, it is believed to have stood until the time of Hadrian’s later successor Constantine in 325 A.D.
ALMIGHTY GOD WILL NOT BE MOCKED, MAKE NO MISTAKE ABOUT THAT!

MAJOR DRONE STRIKE ON MILITARY FACILITIES IN IRAN – ISRAEL IS BEING BLAMED, NOT YET CONFIRMED 01-29-2023
Some military facilities of the revolutionary guards of Iran have been struck by a major drone attack. This has taken place in the cities of Isfahan, Azarshahr, Rasht, Karaj and Mahabad. Some American sources claim it was the US along with other countries; however, the Wall Street Journal claims Israel is responsible for the attack. A few hours ago, a group of twenty-four cargo trucks was attacked from the air at the border crossing between Iraq and Syria in what appears to be an Israeli air strike. As a result of this attack, six refrigerated trucks were destroyed as they transported Iranian-made missiles. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Azerbaijan announced this evening the “evacuation of all employees of the Azerbaijani embassy in Iran, and the complete suspension of the diplomatic mission in Tehran.”
EVEN THE MIGRATING BIRDS DESIRE TO STAY IN ISRAEL!
Israel is considered a crossroads for migratory birds from Europe, Africa, and Asia because of its location that provides a “land bridge” to these surrounding continents. It has been estimated that 500 million birds have passed through Israel each year. However, the year of 2023 proves to be an unusual sight for many visitors in Northern Israel. Hundreds of flamingos are lengthening their winter stay in Israel, as they reside on Hula Lake, providing a treat to those who live in this area. The flamingos have been migrating to Israel in greater numbers and staying longer for reasons that scientists cannot explain. Up until ten years ago, flamingos were rarely seen in Israel. Though some of the birds passed through on their biannual migration, they never stayed. The guide manager at Hula Lake Park has reported that more of these flamingos have been passing through and are staying longer than ever before. The flamingos currently visiting Israel migrated from Iran and Turkey. The Iranian flamingos are drawn to the salt waters of Eilat and the freshwater of the Hula Lake is unusual for them. Perhaps the fact that Israel is the holy land that ALMIGHTY GOD provided to His people also draws these beautiful birds, and encourages them to stay!
ISRAELI SETTLERS ARRESTED FOR RETALIATING AGAINST “PALESTINIAN” TERRORISM
On Sunday, 02-26-2023, hundreds of extremist Israeli settlers, grieved after the murder of two young Israelis from “Palestinian” terrorist attacks, sought vengeance against the extremism. They entered a “Palestinian” town located in Judea and Samaria, the site of where the two young men, aged 19 and 21 were murdered, and set fire to homes, storefronts, and cars. Eight suspects were detained by Israeli troops and police officers on Sunday over the violence, which resulted in one “Palestinian” being killed and several others injured. Some of the offenders were released on Monday morning and one to house arrest, according to Israeli law enforcement officials. Herzi Halevi, the Israeli Military Chief, stated that he would investigate the “lawlessness.” “The grave events of lawlessness in Huwara after the severe attack will be thoroughly investigated,” Halevi said in remarks provided by the Israel Defense Forces. Folks, any life that is lost is considered valuable to ALMIGHTY GOD. The main focus to everyone should be where they desire to spend eternity, because it is our free will choice either for JESUS CHRIST, or the devil’s hell!
ISRAELI AMERICAN CITIZEN KILLED BY TERRORIST IN JORDAN VALLEY
On Monday, 02-27-2023, an Israeli American was killed as terrorists randomly fired at Israeli vehicles near the town of Jericho. Israeli police pursued the terrorists who shot at them, and gunfire was exchanged, as the terrorists fled the scene. Roadblocks and checkpoints have been established, and a search is underway for the attackers, who at some point set their car on fire and continued on foot into Jericho. This area is considered to be under control of the “Palestinian Authority”. The victim was identified as Elan Ganeles of West Hartford, Connecticut. Arriving at the scene were volunteers from United Hatzalah and Magen David Adom who treated Ganeles, who was in his mid-20s and in cardiac arrest when help arrived. He was taken to Hadassah Hospital Mount Scopus, where he was pronounced dead. Writing on Twitter, U.S. Ambassador to Israel Thomas Nides revealed that the victim was also an American citizen. “Sadly, I can confirm that a U.S. citizen was killed in one of the terror attacks in the West Bank tonight,” wrote Nides. “I pray for his family.” REALLY, THOMAS NIDES? IF YOU AND THE U.S. WERE SO CONCERNED ABOUT ISRAELIS, YOU WOULD NOT BE TAKING THE SIDE OF TERRORISTS OVER ISRAELIS. ALSO, YOU WOULD NOT BE PART OF A GROUP THAT PUSHES TO DIVIDE THE LAND OF ISRAEL WITH YOUR “TWO-STATE SOLUTION”.
“PALESTINIAN” TERRORISTS MURDER TWO MORE ISRAELIS – AGES 19 AND 21
As Israel is being reprimanded by Jordan, the PA, Egypt, and the US over the violence in Judea and Samaria, a “Palestinian” terrorist murdered two more Israelis. Two brothers, Hillel Menachem and Yigal Yaakov Yaniv, were killed near the Einabus Junction in Samaria on Sunday (02-26-2023). The victims, ages 21 and 19, were residents of the nearby community Har Bracha. United Hatzalah volunteer EMT Shlomo Rakover reported, “Together with additional first responders we performed CPR on two young men who were critically injured.” “They were then transported to the hospital while undergoing continued resuscitation efforts.” The two victims died shortly after being transported to the hospital. Israel’s security forces are currently searching for the shooter, who opened fire at an Israeli vehicle and is still at large. Yossi Dagan, head of the Samaria Regional Council stated, “The government must change the paradigm and move from defensive to offensive. It cannot be that in the middle of the day terrorists allow themselves to shoot innocent civilians.” Over ten Israelis have been killed in the past few weeks, not to mention the murdered and wounded Israelis the weeks before as the result of an ongoing Israeli counter-terrorism effort in Judea and Samaria. The Israelis are not actively seeking to murder “Palestinians” in cold blood. They are simply protecting one another and defending the land that ALMIGHTY GOD blessed them with generations ago. To ALMIGHTY GOD, all lives matter, so why are the “Palestinians” and the nations that support them placing more value on the lives of “Palestinians” than Israelis? Pay attention to the biased media reports, whether online or other sources, that always place the “Palestinians” in a positive light and the Jews as the villains. Following the terrorist attack, Israeli Defense Minister Yoav Gallant announced he would hold a security assessment to discuss the deadly shooting. Israel Police chief Kobi Shabtai announced that security forces were “entering maximum alert in order to be at the highest level of preparedness for operations.” ALMIGHTY GOD WILL REPAY THESE ENEMIES OF ISRAEL AND ALL THE NATIONS THAT TAKE THE SIDE OF TERRORISTS OVER ISRAEL!
“PALESTINIAN” MARCH THROUGH JUDEA, SAMARIA, GAZA, and EAST JERUSALEM
Midnight marches were held overnight into pre-dawn hours (02-24-2023) throughout Judea, Samaria,Gaza, and east Jerusalem as thousands of “Palestinians” called for revenge upon the Israelis. The “Palestinians” are furious over the IDF’s recent mission into Nablus on 02-22-2023. setting off low-level clashes with security forces in some places. The “Palestinians” now call for demonstrations by the Lion’s Den terror group and demonstrated a show of solidarity with the armed outfit. Members of Lion’s Den, an offshoot of “Palestinian” Islamic Jihad formed in 2022, had been targeted by Israeli forces during the Wednesday morning raid in Nablus. On Thursday (02-23-2023), On Thursday, Lion’s Den persuaded the “Palestinians” to show support for the group and “let the world know that the Lion’s Den and the resistance is ready for a swift reprisal.” The police raised their alert level Wednesday night over possible revenge attacks, threats from “Palestinian” terror groups, and the condemnation of Israel from many nations. Throughout 2022, the IDF has conducted near-nightly raids in Judea and Samaria in response to several “Palestinian” terror attacks that killed 32 people, and another 11 since the beginning of this year. The majority of the recent military raids s have targeted the Lion’s Den, a terrorist organization of Nablus-based gunmen who have won widespread popularity on the “Palestinian” street. This terrorist group has launched repeated brazen attacks on military posts, troops operating along the Judea and Samaria security barrier, Israeli settlements, and civilians on the roads.
LATEST ISRAELI VICTIMS ARE BROTHERS, AGES 6 AND 8, AND NEWLYWED
On Saturday, 02-11-2023, eight-year-old Asher Menahem Paley died from the wounds he sustained on Friday afternoon when a “Palestinian” terrorist drove his car into a crowded bus stop in the Ramot section of Jerusalem. Six-year-old Yaakov Yisrael Paley, Asher’s brother, died at the scene of the attack. Their brother, Moshie, age ten, was lightly wounded in the attack and released from the hospital over the weekend. The boys’ father, 42, remains hospitalized in moderate condition. The children were buried on Friday afternoon and Saturday night in Jerusalem. Another victim of the terror attack was Alter Shlomo Lederman, a 20-year-old yeshiva student who had gotten married two months ago. He and his wife were on their way to spend Shabbat with his parents. Lederman was buried on Friday before Shabbat. Two men in their 20s are still hospitalized in serious condition. The “Palestinian” terrorist was an Israeli citizen and a resident of the Issawiya neighborhood of Jerusalem. Eyewitnesses said he accelerated into the group of Israelis waiting at the bus stop and purposely rammed into them. He was shot and killed by a police officer who happened to be at the scene. Many “Palestinians” went to the streets to celebrate the murders, including children in Gaza who handed out cake and candies.
THREE MORE TERROR ATTACKS IN JERUSALEM
The Holy City of Jerusalem is undergoing a dramatic increase in terrorist attacks. The majority of these attacks are being carried out by young boys, many armed with handguns. On Monday evening (02-13-2023), a 22-year-old IDF Border Police officer was stabbed by a 13-year-old “Palestinian” terrorist and was killed. IDF Staff Sgt. Asil Sawaed was carrying out a security check on a bus in the Shuafat neighborhood of Jerusalem when he was attacked. A civilian security guard accompanying Sawaed fired his weapon at the terrorist, killing him. Shortly after the attack, a company of IDF soldiers entered Shuafat to arrest people connected with the incident and were attacked by stone-throwing and a car sped toward them. The soldiers opened fire as per the IDF rules of engagement and the driver was neutralized. The Arab driver was taken for treatment after the incident. Earlier that day a 17-year-old Israeli boy was stabbed by a “Palestinian” terrorist near the Chain Gate in the Old City of Jerusalem. The Israeli victim fled toward the Western Wall and was treated there by paramedics before being evacuated to Hadassah Ein Kerem in moderate condition. The 14-year-old attacker fled, entering the Temple Mount and the Al Aqsa Mosque. Police closed the Temple Mount until they were able to arrest him. The enemies of Israel will continue to rise up against them. Of course, there will be a false “peace” with Israel and her enemies (which includes the United States). In the end, ALMIGHTY GOD will be reconciled with the remnant of the Jews who come to salvation through JESUS CHRIST and all the enemies of the Jews will be destroyed.
Zechariah 12:9 And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will seek to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem.
DRAMATIC INCREASE OF “PALESTINIAN” ATTACKS AGAINST ISRAELIS
AFP PHOTO / HAZEM BADER
A dramatic increase in terrorism has been afflicting Israel over the past year, carrying into 2023. Last year, Israel registered a total of five-thousand attacks orchestrated by “Palestinian” terrorists, who murdered 31 people and injured over four-hundred Israelis. The list of victims at the hands of terrorists continues to climb as two brothers, ages 19 and 21, were murdered on Sunday. The terrorist took advantage of a traffic jam, ramming their car before shooting them at close range. On Monday, 02-27-2023, Elan Ganeles, an Israeli American man was killed by terrorist gunfire. On Monday evening, terrorists opened fire at an Israeli vehicle carrying two parents and three children in Samaria. The vehicle was hit by four bullets, but PRAISE JESUS no one was wounded. Arab youths also perpetrated terrorist acts inside Jerusalem Monday evening as they threw Molotov cocktails at houses. No injuries were reported but three cars were damaged by the fire. This type of attack has been carried out several times within that neighborhood. On Tuesday, 02-28-2023, United Hatzalah volunteers treated an infant who was injured in a rock-throwing attack targeting a highway Ein Sima. On Sunday, 02-26-2023, Defense Minister Yoav Gallant conducted a situational assessment with the heads of the defense establishment. Gallant ordered the strengthening of defense efforts in the towns and roads in Judea and Samaria. As a result the IDF will reinforce the Judea and Samaria Division with two additional battalions. The southern border is also at risk as six rockets were fired from Gaza toward Israeli territory on Thursday morning.
FOLKS, DESPITE WHAT MAN THINKS, THERE WILL NEVER BE TRUE PEACE ON THIS EARTH, AND THIS VIOLENCE WILL CONTINUE AGAINST ISRAEL. THERE WILL BE A FALSE PEACE UNDER THE ABRAHAM ACCORDS, THE TREATY THAT WILL USHER IN THE ANTICHRIST, AND MANY PEOPLE WILL BE FOOLED. THE ONLY TRUE PEACE WILL COME WHEN JESUS CHRIST RETURNS!
HOME OF “PALESTINIAN” TERRORIST WHO KILLED SEVEN WILL BE DEMOLISHED
The IDF has announced that the home of the terrorist who killed seven people outside a synagogue in the Neve Yaakov neighborhood of Jerusalem will be demolished. Alqam Khayri, 21, was shot and killed by police during the attack on 01-27-2023. According to the Israeli military, Khayri’s family had been notified of the decision. The residence is located in a-Tur, the eastern part of Jerusalem and has already been sealed off by Israeli security forces, which often precedes demolishing a terrorist’s home. This process could take several months given that the structures need to be mapped out by the military, and court appeals sometimes arise. Khayri’s family is eligible to appeal the move to Israel’s High Court of Justice, but such attempts rarely succeed. National Security Minister Itamar Ben-Gvir stated, “A terrorist is a terrorist, even if he has not succeeded in carrying out his vile plans. Glad that the Cabinet accepted my proposal, and we will continue to fight terrorism by all means,” Ben-Gvir also stated that he would soon propose a bill to institute the death penalty for terrorists.
“PALESTINIAN” ENVOY TO UK DENIES MURDER OF SEVEN ISRAELIS AS TERRORISM
Husam Zomlot, “Palestinian” envoy to the UK, refused to admit the “Palestinian” assault that killed seven Israelis on Shabbat was an act of terrorism. Zomlot sympathized with the Islamic Jihad terrorists and described that as “refugees” who were “ethnically cleansed.” During a recent interview, Zomlot was asked if he condemned the synagogue attack in Jerusalem that took place on International Holocaust Remembrance Day. The “Palestinian” envoy replied, “Every life lost is absolutely a tragedy, and no one works for a nonviolent solution to this more than us.” When questioned, “Do you condemn it?” Zomlot answered, “No, I condemn the origin of all this. That’s what needs to be condemned here.” When asked again on whether he condemns the murder of Jews, Zomlot stated,“We can sit here until the morning talking about condemnation. We must stop the cycle of violence. That’s what we need to do. And we must visit the root cause of this violence.” He proceeded to describe Israel as a “colonizer,” “occupier” and “besieger.” He also claimed that the “Palestinians” killed during last Thursday’s IDF raid in Jenin were “refugees who were ethnically cleansed,” when in fact eight out of the nine fatalities were members of Islamic Jihad, designated by the United Kingdom as a terrorist organization. Israeli security forces determined to conduct a large-scale counter-terrorism operation in Jenin during daylight hours in order to prevent a major terror plot from moving ahead. According to military intelligence, the plot involved a “Palestinian” Islamic Jihad attack against Israelis to be carried out in the immediate future. Mahmoud Abbas, PA chief stated that he could not condemn the recent series of terrorist attacks as doing so would be “political suicide.”
“PALESTINIANS” CARRY OUT TERROR ATTACKS ON SHABBAT
The “”Palestinians” unleashed yet another terror attack on Israelis, beginning on Thursday (01-26-2023) evening by fired a barrage of rockets from Gaza. On Friday evening, beginning of Shabbat (true Sabbath), a “Palestinian” terrorist murdered seven Israelis and wounded three others In Jerusalem. The terrorist opened fire at the people gathered in a synagogue in the Neve Yaakov neighborhood of Jerusalem, then fled in a vehicle to the Arab neighborhood of Beit Hanina that was in close proximity. He was shot and killed by security forces as he exited the vehicle. A handgun, presumably the weapon used in the attack, was found at the scene. Medics declared five victims dead at the scene, and another two victims were declared dead at hospitals in Jerusalem. The dead were five men, aged 20, 25, 30, 50, and 60, and two women, aged 60 and 70. Among the wounded were a 15-year-old boy in moderate-to-serious condition, a 24-year-old man in moderate condition, and a 60-year-woman, also in moderate condition. On Saturday morning, a 13-year-old Palestinian boy armed with a handgun shot and wounded two Israelis. A father, age 59, and son, in his 20s, near the Old City of Jerusalem. The son, an off-duty officer in the Paratroopers Brigade, returned fire despite his wounds, hitting the terrorist. The victims were taken to Shaare Zedek Medical Center with gunshot wounds to their upper bodies where they were listed in serious but stable condition. In response to this cold-blooded terror attack, celebrations were held by the “Palestinians” in several Arab cities.
The PA Security Council released an official statement, blaming Israel for the attacks. “The Palestinian leadership holds the Israeli occupation government fully responsible for the dangerous escalation that the situation has reached due to its crimes, which amounted to 31 martyrs during the current month, and its continuation of its colonial settlement practices, land annexation, house demolitions, arrests, policies of ethnic cleansing and apartheid, and the desecration of Islamic, Christian holy sites, and storming of Al-Aqsa Mosque,” the statement read. “These policies are a result of the Israeli occupation government’s evasion of its commitment to implement the signed agreements and its violation of the resolutions of international legitimacy. The leadership warns the occupation government against continuing this approach, which will lead to further deterioration, threatening security and stability in the entire region.” As a reminder folks, ALMIGHTY GOD blessed the Jews with all of this disputed land and it all belongs to them! The Arabs who choose to call themselves “Palestinians”, a leftover term from the “Yassar Arafat terror reign” are not entitled to any of this territory. ALMIGHTY GOD is giving them time to repent, just like He does with all of us and if they choose to remain spiritually blind, they will certainly regret their hatred of the Jewish people on judgment day. They paint Israel as the vicious cold-blooded murderers; however, they are being obedient to what ALMIGHTY GOD had instructed them to do generations ago. To cast out their enemies and occupy the land that He blessed them with.
A spokesman for Antonio Guterres, UN chief, stated the secretary-general “strongly condemns today’s terrorist attack by a Palestinian perpetrator outside a synagogue in Jerusalem” and “extends his heartfelt condolences to the families of the victims and wishes a prompt recovery to those injured. “It is particularly abhorrent that the attack occurred at a place of worship, and on the very day we commemorated International Holocaust Remembrance Day. There is never any excuse for acts of terrorism. They must be clearly condemned and rejected by all,” the statement added. Guterres said he was “deeply worried about the current escalation of violence in Israel and the Occupied Palestinian Territory. This is the moment to exercise utmost restraint.”
Folks, do not allow this false concern from Guterres to deceive you. The United Nations is an antichrist organization, and an enemy of the Jewish people who desire to divide Israel’s land and establish the fourth earthly antichrist kingdom false peace. Just like their father who is Satan, the governing figures within the United Nations pose as angels of light, keeping their true agenda hidden. They want to appear as the “saviour” who steps in with their words of vanity. Make no mistake about it folks, the UN is one of many enemies of Israel, and their purpose to commemorate Holocaust Remembrance Day is not for them to declare “never again”, but to bring these very atrocities of the Nazi regime back once more. The very thought of genocide of the Jews is devilishly appealing to them and this is why they choose to remember this abomination.
Psalm 120:6-7 My soul hath long dwelt with him that hateth peace. I am for peace: but when I speak, they are for war.
FURTHER DEVELOPMENT ON THIS STORY: On Sunday, 01-29-2023, Israeli officers sealed off the Jerusalem family home of the “Palestinian” gunman who killed seven people outside a synagogue on the outskirts of the city after Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu promised “a swift response”. The massacre was the worst such “Palestinian” attack on Israelis in Jerusalem since 2008. This atrocity followed an Israeli raid in city of Jenin on Thursday, the deadliest for this area in years. Netanyahu, who returned to power in December has pledged to improve personal safety for Israelis after a dramatic increase of deadly “Palestinian” street attacks last year.
PA SUSPENDS “SECURITY COORDINATION” WITH ISRAEL AFTER JENIN RAID
On Thursday, 01-26-2023 the PA declared its “security coordination” with Israel has been suspended. This decision was announced after news of the raid in Jenin, where PIJ operatives opened fire on Israeli forces attempting to arrest them for terrorist attacks. Nine “Palestinians” were killed during the raid, which included an elderly woman. “The security coordination is nonexistent starting from now,” stated the Palestinian Presidency. The “Palestinians” intend to go immediately to the UN Security Council, request UN intervention, and resume their bid to join UN agencies as full members. In addition, the Palestinian Authority will ask the International Criminal Court to add Thursday’s incident in Jenin to its open investigation against Israel. UN envoy Tor Wennesland warned “Palestinian” officials that suspending “security coordination” with Israel could result in major consequences and urged them not to take that step. The UN envoy also spoke with Israeli defense officials, advising them to take urgent steps to calm down the situation. Khader Adnan, an Islamic Jihad official, reported that his group will do whatever it takes to defend the “Palestinian” people and sent messages to Israel through mediators that it is “ready and prepared for a confrontation.” In addition, Hamas, which governs the Gaza Strip, stated the “response of the resistance will not be delayed.” IDF officials are preparing for possible rocket fire from “Palestinian” armed groups in Gaza to retaliate. And what a coincidence folks! In just days, US Secretary of State, Anthony Blinken, just happens to be scheduled to visit the Middle East, meeting with Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu, and PA’s Mahmoud Abbas separately to discuss the escalating tensions. Sounds like a well-planned agenda of false peace to me, folks. Remember, all of this land that the “Palestinians” are crying over has belonged to the Jews for thousands of years. Despite this fact, Israel will certainly go through many trials and tribulations before their land is fully restored to them from ALMIGHTY GOD.
“PALESTINIANS” OPEN FIRE ON IDF – NINE PEOPLE KILLED
Nine “Palestinians” were killed as PIJ operatives opened fire on IDF soldiers during intense clashes on 01-26-2023. The Israeli forces were attempting to arrest the operatives in Jenin (Northern Judea and Samaria). The Israeli military reported it had received intelligence regarding a group of Islamic Jihad operatives suspected of carrying out armed attacks against Israeli soldiers. The group was planning more attacks, the Israeli military said. “During an attempt to arrest them, the wanted men opened fire and were killed in an exchange of fire,” stated the IDF. “Three members of the PIJ cell were killed and a fourth was arrested. No Israeli forces were injured in the clashes, although video footage circulating online appears to show Palestinians downing an IDF drone. Israeli forces remain engaged in a counter-terrorism offensive, primarily in Judea and Samaria, in response to a series of “Palestinian” attacks that killed 31 people in 2022.
“PALESTINIAN” FOREIGN MINISTER’S VIP TRAVEL PERMIT REVOKED BY ISRAEL – 01-08-2023
Israel’s new government is now pushing back against the atrocities of the “Palestinians” as well as the UN. On Sunday, 01-08-2023, Israel revoked the VIP travel permit of Riad Malki, the Palestinian foreign minister, following through with a series of actions against the “Palestinians” that the Israeli government had announced just days ago. Malki stated that he was “returning from the Brazilian president’s inauguration when he was informed that Israel had rescinded his VIP travel permit, which allows top Palestinian officials to travel more easily in and out of the occupied West Bank than ordinary Palestinians”. Just to clarify, the antichrist United Nations took it upon themselves to rewrite maps of Israel and rename Judea and Samaria the “West Bank”, which is an abomination to ALMIGHTY GOD! Judea and Samaria are part of the total land mass that the LORD GOD blessed the children of Israel with generations ago. When the twelve tribes of Israel were provided their particular location, the area of Judea (Judaea) and Samaria were given to Judah, Benjamin, Ephraim, and Manasseh. This land encompasses the very heartland of the Jews’ homeland. Folks, when ALMIGHTY GOD blessed the Hebrew nation with this land, He did not intend for them to give it away or divide it into “colonies”. ALL OF THIS LAND IS FOR THE JEWISH PEOPLE, LIKE IT OR NOT! THIS IS A FACT THAT CANNOT BE CHANGED BECAUSE ALMIGHTY GOD SAYS SO!
On Friday, 01-06-2023, the Israeli government approved the steps to penalize the “Palestinians” in retaliation for them pushing the highest judicial body of the United Nations regarding Israeli occupation. Rulings by the International Court of Justice are not binding, but they can be influential on world opinion. The “Palestinians” condemned the revoking of Malki’s permit, stating that, “Israel should be the one being punished for its violations against international law.” Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu met with his Cabinet on Sunday, 01-08-2023, and informed them the measures against the “Palestinians” were aimed at what he called “an extreme anti-Israel” step at the United Nations. Malki’s office said he was still permitted to travel like ordinary “Palestinians” but had lost the VIP privileges that allow him to bypass lines and move quickly through Israeli checkpoints or through the “West Bank’s” (Judea and Samaria) crossing into Jordan. Also on Friday, 01-06-2023, the government’s Security Cabinet decided Israel would withhold $39 million from the “Palestinian Authority” and transfer the funds instead to a compensation program for the families of Israeli victims of “Palestinian” militant attacks. It was not clear whether the VIP permits of other officials had been revoked as well.
BEN-GVIR ORDERS POLICE TO REMOVE “PALESTINIAN” FLAGS FROM PUBLIC AREAS
Itamar Ben-Gvir, Israel’s new National Security Minister instructed police to remove Palestinian flags from public spaces on Sunday, 01-08-2023. Israeli law does not prohibit “Palestinian” flags; however, Israeli police and military reserve the right to remove them in cases where they perceive there is a threat to public order. The recent order from Ben-Gvir, who oversees the police, follows the release last week of a long-serving “Palestinian” prisoner, convicted of kidnapping and killing an Israeli soldier in 1983, who waved a “Palestinian” flag while receiving a hero’s welcome in his village in northern Israel. Folks, just like the rest of us, the Arabs who identify as “Palestinians” (term from Yassar Arafat and UN) have the same opportunity to call on the Name of the LORD GOD, believe on JESUS CHRIST, repent, and commit their lives to serve JESUS CHRIST. Sadly enough, they choose to remain in spiritual darkness, being driven by blindness, hatred, misinformation, and confusion.
PALESTINIAN AND ISRAELI VIOLENCE DEADLIEST SINCE 2006
In the wake of the most recent Palestinian terrorist attack against Israelis, we are reminded that the increase in Israeli-Palestinian violence in Judea, Samaria, and east Jerusalem has killed at least 25 people on the Israeli side and more than 130 Palestinians. These deaths on both sides are making 2022 the deadliest since 2006. The IDF declares that its almost nightly arrest raids in Judea and Samaria — which began after Palestinian attacks killed 19 Israelis last spring — are needed to remove terrorist networks at a time when Palestinian security forces are unable or unwilling to do so. The Palestinians claim the Israeli raids undermine their security forces and are aimed at cementing Israel’s open-ended 55-year occupation of lands they want for their hoped-for state. Hoped for state? THE NATION OF ISRAEL IS SO BECAUSE IT IS THE DIVINE PLAN OF ALMIGHTY GOD!
Hundreds of Palestinians have been rounded up in such raids, with many placed in so-called administrative detention, which allows Israel to hold them without trial or charge. Israel captured Judea and Samaria in the 1967 Mideast war, along with east Jerusalem and the Gaza Strip. The Palestinians seek those territories for their hoped-for independent state. Notice how the Palestinians believe the Israelis have no right to defend themselves? Notice how they desire to take away all the land that ALMIGHTY GOD provided to the Jews generations ago? Who do you think gave Israel the victory in the 1967 Mideast war? Strategically, the odds were stacked against Israel; however, nothing is impossible with ALMIGHTY GOD!
If the Arabs, who so hate Israel, would repent and turn to ALMIGHTY GOD, He would forgive them and accept them. But they freely choose to remain an enemy of The LORD GOD and wage war against His chosen people. They will continue to deal with the consequences as long as they remain hard hearted and attempt to divide the land that The LORD has already given to the Jews.
SMOTRICH CONDEMNS “PALESTINIAN” AUTHORITY AS SUPPORTER OF TERRORISM
Israeli Finance Minister Bezalel Smotrich stated, “as long as the “Palestinian” Authority supports terror there is no point in its existence”. Smotrich signed an order on Sunday, 01-08-2023 to transfer $39 million of “Palestinian” tax fees to Israeli terror victims. Smotrich further stated, “The PA must decide if it wants to continue to exist and if so, it will deal with the needs of its Arab citizens in Judea and Samaria and will stop engaging with terror or it does not want to exist and it prefers to return to the situation where it is Israel’s enemy. An enemy is an entity that one does battle with it,” he said. “There is no situation in the world where on one hand the PA is a partner that receives funds from us and on the other hand it is an enemy that is leading [terror activities] and supporting the murder of Israelis,” stated Smotrich. Israel has long opposed the PA policy of paying monthly stipends to terrorists who have killed Israelis and their families. The Israeli Security Cabinet recently decided to resume withholding the sum given to terrorists from the tax fees it transfers to the PA, in addition to the $39 million now being intended for Israeli terror victims. These latest strategies will certainly cause a financial crisis for the PA, which is already suffering economically. Smotrich stated that, “the PA’s financial collapse is a crisis of its own making and not his concern. “As long as the PA supports terror and is an enemy, why am I interested in helping it exist? My only interest in its existence is if it operates within existing agreements… and takes care of its citizens and thwarts and acts against terror and works in conjunction with the Israeli security forces, then the PA is an authority with which one can have an in-depth relationship,” stated Smotrich.
HOLOCAUST REMEMBRANCE DAY
Israeli President Isaac Herzog recently addressed the European Parliament and called remembrance to International Holocaust Remembrance Day, held annually on Jan. 27, the anniversary of the liberation of survivors from the Auschwitz-Bikrenau Nazi death camp. Herzog also addressed a group of Holocaust (Shoah) survivors and lawmakers. “The Holocaust was not born in a vacuum. We must never forget that the Nazi death machine would not have succeeded in realizing its nightmarish vision had it not met soil fertilized with Jew-hatred, which is as old as time itself. The stereotypical depiction of Jews had struck roots through Europe for centuries and generations, before the rise of Nazism. Nazi ideology intensified traditional antisemitism, and primordial fears fanned the flames of hatred,” said Herzog. “Even before a single extermination camp was built, in the minds of the masses, the Jew was already human dust, sub-human. It is precisely for this reason, precisely because the Holocaust was predicated on much older antisemitic foundations that had taken root and flourished in Europe, that this dark abyss is a terrible, profound, and compelling lesson for the whole of Europe,” stated the Israeli president. “When we stand together, here, in the beating heart of the European Union, we understand well the mission of memory that we all share: We recognize that at the memorial site to which we make pilgrimage, we must remember not only the Holocaust and the destruction, but also the sacred alliance forged alongside this horrific disaster, to sanctify the memory of the victims, to prioritize the welfare of the survivors who are still with us, to teach and educate in light of the lessons of the historic catastrophe that was the Holocaust, and to prevent any repetition of these ghastly crimes,” said Herzog. “I can only imagine the Allied forces marching into Brussels [in 1944] and liberating the city and some Jewish soldiers, like my father, going into this building, just like the Maccabees cleared out the desecrated Temple. And while Jews should be free to be equal citizens anywhere they choose, and to make their home anywhere they choose—in Brussels, Paris, New York or Jerusalem—there are naturally special and unbreakable bonds between the Jewish people and the Jewish state,” concluded Herzog.
The crime of anti-Semitism has not gone away folks. It is still being exercised throughout the world today, only in more subtle ways. Anyone who supports a “two-state solution” and desires for Israel’s land to be divided is proclaiming themselves to be anti-Semitic. Anyone who denies a Jew the right to pray on the Temple Mount and considers it provocative is anti-Semitic. Anyone who has this information and chooses not to speak out against it is anti-Semitic. Don’t just say, “never forget”, but strongly show your support of the Jewish people.
If you curse the Jews, you will be cursed, and this would include standing by and not speaking out against wickedness when you see and hear it going on around you. As we read the words of ALMIGHTY GOD when He spoke to Abraham, whom the LORD began the Jewish nation with…Genesis 12:3 And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed. The genealogy line of the Jews began with Abraham and ends with JESUS CHRIST (fully GOD and fully man, sinless).
SIDE NOTE: When were Jews forced to wear badges to identify themselves? It was not during the Nazi era, as most people believe. During the eighth century A.D. Muslim rulers were among the first groups to cause Jews and Christians to wear a badge. This method was used to divide the Jews and Christians from the Muslim population. Muslims called Jews and Christians “People of the Book” and recognized their right to practice their faith and be provided state protection. In exchange for these “services” the Jews and Christians were required to pay the Muslims a tax (jizya). The main intent of wearing badges, primarily in yellow, was to brand the people whom the Muslims believed were socially inferior to them. During the Middle Ages, European kings and Catholic “popes” continued this practice. And of course, most of us are aware of the notorious yellow “star” badge with the word “Jude” in the middle, imposed by the Nazi-era minions of Satan. Be aware that Muslims are right now targeting Christians and all non-Muslims on the Temple Mount by forcing them to wear humiliating yellow garments. There is an article regarding this matter further down this page.
ANTI – SEMITIC BRITISH MINISTER PRAYS ON SITE OF TEMPLE MOUNT – EMPHASIZES “JORDANIAN CUSTODIANSHIP”
Lord Tariq Ahmad, Minister of Middle East Affairs at the British Foreign Ministry, prayed at the Temple Mount site on 01-12-2023 in a blatant anti-Jewish display. Ahmad declared his support for “Jordanian custodianship.” The Temple Mount is considered the holiest site in Judaism because many significant biblical accounts took place there. The LORD GOD began the nation of Israel with Abraham, and this site is where Abraham was spared from offering Isaac his son, whom the LORD formed His covenant with. It is also where King Solomon built the first Jewish temple, King Herod the Great built the second temple, destroyed by the Romans in 70 A.D. and is the site of a future temple from which Messiah JESUS CHRIST will rule over the earth during His 1,000-year reign. Ahmad is just one example of many anti-Jewish minions of Satan, who desire to take away the land of Israel from its rightful owners. In meetings with “Palestinian” officials, he spoke against Israel’s “occupation” of “Palestine”. The British diplomat was accompanied by several senior Waqf officials and of course, not one Israeli was asked to accompany him on his visit to Judaism’s holiest site. This demonic desire to obliterate the chosen nation of Israel has been going on since Satan (formerly Lucifer) was cast out of heaven for trying to be equal with ALMIGHTY GOD. The British and the U.N. are fierce enemies of Israel and desire to divide the land and “colonize” it, just like during WWI. Read the Holy Bible, the only truth that exists, for yourself, and stop being ignorant of these facts, unless you prefer to stay in darkness! The most important matters to consider is that ALMIGHTY GOD is always in charge, all the original land given to the Jews will be restored to them, the LORD will be reunited with the Jews, and there will come a day when all the enemies of Israel (the Jews) will be cursed if they do not repent and turn to JESUS CHRIST!
GEORGE WASHINGTON UNIVERSITY ACCUSED OF ANTI SEMITISM
StandWithUs, a pro-Israel nonprofit organization, accused George Washington University, located in the U.S. capital, of encouraging a pervasive, hostile, and discriminatory environment for Jewish and Israeli students. The organization filed their complaint with the US Department of Education’s Office for Civil Right on 01-12-2023. StandWithUs claims that GWU was in violation of Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, which states that “no person in the United States shall, on the ground of race, color, or national origin, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any program or activity receiving federal financial assistance.” The university’s Professional Psychology Program is the focus of this complaint, specifically the facilitator of the program’s mandatory diversity course, Professor Sheehi, who was accused by StandWithUs of denying Jewish and Israeli students “the right to an equal educational opportunity.” Details of the filed complaint reveal that Israeli and Jewish students who came forward about their experience were punished for speaking out. It is alleged that Sheesi slandered students’ reputations to fellow members of GWU faculty, while targeting the students with excessive and irregular disciplinary procedures against them. Further details claim that Sheehi invited a guest lecturer who spewed antisemitic rhetoric about Jews being dishonest and using their influence for criminal purposes. According to the complaint, the guest lecturer, identified as Dr. Nadera Shalhoub-Kevorkian, “expressed support for violence against Israeli civilians.” StandWithUs also reports, “when the students raised concerns about the antisemitic harassment they were experiencing, Sheehi denied that what the students had experienced was antisemitism and distorted the Jewish students’ comments to accuse the Jewish students of attacking other identity groups. In reference to her academia.org.page, Sheehi is a supporter of the “Palestinian” movement. She has written several articles such as the following: “The will to Live in Palestine (2021),” “Psychotherapeutic Commons in Liberated Palestine (2021),” “Enactments of otherness and searching for a third space in the Palestine-Israel matrix (2016)” and “The settlers’ town is strongly built: Fanon in Palestine (2020).” If these allegations are proven, this professor has no right to teach a class based on “diversity” when she is obviously biased from the start. As a reminder, ALMIGHTY GOD warns us that anyone who curses the Jews will be cursed!
ILHAN OMAR’S ANTI JEWISH REMARKS WILL CAUSE HER REMOVAL FROM HOUSE FOREIGN AFFAIRS COMMITTEE
U.S. House Speaker Kevin McCarthy recently vowed to block Rep. Ilhan Omar from the House Foreign Affairs Committee due to her blatant anti-Semitic remarks. McCarthy stated, “Look at Congresswoman Omar, her antisemitic comments that have gone forward. We’re not going to allow her to be on Foreign Affairs.” McCarthy previously commented,” Omar’s antisemitic and anti-Israel comments includes when she accused the Jewish state of having “hypnotized the world,” accused Jews of buying control of Congress, called Israel an “apartheid state” and likened Israel to the Taliban and Hamas terrorist organizations. The Zionist Organization of America (ZOA) supported McCarthy’s repeated promise to remove Omar from the committee. “ZOA applauds Speaker Kevin McCarthy for following through on his commitment,” ZOA National President Morton Klein said in a statement. “Jew-hatred and unwarranted Israel-bashing are dangerous not just to Israel, but to the United States. They undermine the safety of American Jews in the streets of our cities and on college campuses, and they corrode the fabric of our society.” Klein went on to say that Omar’s removal sends a powerful message that antisemitism will not be tolerated and urged McCarthy to take the same action against Rep. Rashida Tlaib “as punishment for her bigotry as well.” Obama and Tlaib are leftovers from the “Obama” era and their “anti-American” and anti-Semitic” rhetoric continues to pervert the halls of justice in Washington today. The world hasn’t seen much of Obama since he faded into the background but make no mistake about it. he is still present on the Washington stage along with all of his “fan club” who he presented with medals of honour several years ago.
Proverbs 29:12 If a ruler hearken to lies, all his servants are wicked.
BIDEN DENIES STUDENTS PROTECTION AGAINST ANTISEMITISM
The “Biden” administration declared that once again, it will be postponing a Trump-era executive order that protects students from antisemitism. Sadly enough, this announcement comes during a time of increased on-campus antisemitism. The purpose of Title VI, introduced in 2019, was to call attention to a gap in the interpretation of Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. This federal statute is designed to prohibit discrimination in programs receiving federal financial assistance on the basis of race, color or national origin. The original Title VI did not bar discrimination on the basis of religion; however, the 2019 update now includes the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (HRA) working definition of anti-Semitism. The U.S. Department of Education pledged to issue new regulations in September 2020 but after Biden entered the White House, the department announced that the changes would take place in December 2022. 39 members of the US Congress released a letter in February urging the Department of Education to escalate the process. Apparently, the “Biden” Administration does not believe protecting the civil rights of Jewish people is important. During the 2021-2022 school year, threats to Jewish identity on college campuses doubled from 114 incidents the year before to 228 incidents, while incidents of suppression of Jewish identity almost tripled from 37 to 123, according to a report from the AMCHA Initiative, a pro-Israel college campus organization. The IHRA definition states, “Antisemitism is a certain perception of Jews, which may be expressed as hatred toward Jews. Rhetorical and physical manifestations of antisemitism are directed toward Jewish or non-Jewish individuals and/or their property, toward Jewish community institutions and religious facilities.” While the definition seems straightforward, it is controversial due to 11 illustrative examples, seven of which relate to Israel. These include “claiming that the existence of a State of Israel is a racist endeavor,” “denying the Jewish people their right to self-determination,” and “applying double standards by requiring of it a behavior not expected or demanded of any other democratic nation.” As such, people and organizations that are critical of Israel object to the IHRA definition.
This certainly explains why the “Biden” white house is delaying the process of this executive order, because they desire to divide the land of Israel, which is against the Divine Plan of ALMIGHTY GOD! It appears Biden is more concerned about promoting the killing of babies through abortion and mutilating children through transgenderism than offering protection to the Jewish people. You should be ashamed of yourself, Joe Biden, if that is who you really are! I believe you have an “actor” who has taken your place, while you are hiding safely away in your underground compound. Regardless, you are still a puppet in this “end-game” production. Never forget that ALMIGHTY GOD is always in charge, and He sees everything that you and your cronies are doing, at all times!
MAHMUD ABBAS MAKES FALSE HOLOCAUST CLAIM
Palestinian Authority President Mahmud Abbas had the audacity to compare the Holocaust to the killing of Palestinians by the Jewish state. Abbas made this atrocious remark during the Berlin press conference, and his words were condemned by Israel and Germany. Chancellor Olaf Scholz asked Abbas if he would apologize on behalf of the Palestinian militants who carried out the 1972 Munich Olympics hostage-taking in which 11 Israelis were killed. Abbas did not provide a direct response to this question, and Scholz did not immediately challenge Abbas on his Holocaust comments. However, Scholz tweeted on Wednesday that he was “disgusted by the outrageous remarks” made by the Palestinian leader. “For us Germans in particular, any relativization of the singularity of the Holocaust is intolerable and unacceptable,” Scholz wrote. “I condemn any attempt to deny the crimes of the Holocaust.” “Six million Jews were murdered in the Holocaust, including one and a half million Jewish children, under the Nazi “3rd Reich” of Adolph Hitler. This was an orchestrated, demonic agenda to attempt to eliminate the nation of Israel by destroying the Jews.” In strong opposition to the atrocious remarks of Mahmud Abbas, the Israeli military are defending the land given to them by ALMIGHTY GOD, and the Arabs (“Palestinians”) are trying to steal from them. Oh yes, IT IS NIGHT AND DAY IN COMPARISON. Shame on you, Mahmud Abbas, and anyone who takes your side!
MORE ANTISEMITIC REMARKS FROM TLAIB
Rep Rashida Tlaib — who considers herself Palestinian American — spoke out against the “apartheid government of Israel” during a recent Muslim Americans for Palestine event. Tlaib continued her threat to “push back” on the idea that individuals can be progressive and pro-Israel. “I want you all to know that among progressives it has become clear that you cannot claim to hold progressive values yet back Israel’s apartheid government, and we will continue to push back and not accept this idea that you are progressive except for Philistine any longer,” Tlaib said.
Tlaib and some other progressive Democrats — particularly those in the “Squad,” including Reps. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.), Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) and Cori Bush (D-Mo.) — have been critical of Israel in the past, raising concerns about how Palestinians are treated in the country. It appears “the squad” is carrying on the Obama agenda from his administration, when he turned his back on Israel with a smirk on his face. In addition to this, he also mocked the Holy Word of ALMIGHTY GOD during his first campaign, yet America still voted for him.
Apartheid? REALLY! Maybe it is time for these enemies of Israel to open up the Holy Word of ALMIGHTY GOD and read the truth. Israel was given all of their land by The LORD GOD thousands of years ago and He states that Jerusalem belongs to Him! May I suggest to Rep. Tlaib and all who agree with her point of view that they should take this up with ALMIGHTY GOD and learn the truth before it’s too late for them. If they continue to reject JESUS CHRIST and the absolute truth, their next discussion will be on judgment day when it is too late for them!
BEWARE – FALSE DOCTRINE OF BLACK HEBREW ISRAELITES
The ongoing and increasing Black Hebrew Israelites movement is nothing but another false doctrine unleashed upon the world. The followers of this abomination consider themselves — and not mainstream Jews — to be the true descendants of the ancient Israelites. They profess that modern Jews are Edomites that hijacked Judaism from blacks. This amounts to nothing more than reverse discrimination; a mirror image of the white supremacist agenda who push the lie that northern Europeans, not Jews, are the chosen people of ALMIGHTY GOD. Both Black Hebrew Israelites and British Israelists view the Jewish people as the spawn of Satan and accuse them of secretly controlling society by Machiavellian string-pulling. Tom Metzger, leader of the White Aryan Resistance, has said, “They’re the black counterpart of us
The Black Hebrew Israelite movement is very anti-Semitic, as they not only deny the bloodline of the true Jews, but they often demonize the Jewish race, and are frequently seen praising Hitler for the holocaust. Consider the babbling and ranting of Kanye West, as one example. It is completely insane that proponents of this movement would think highly of Adolf Hitler, who believed in the principles of eugenics. The Nazi regime taught that the black race was inferior to the white Europeans, who these monsters considered to be “superior”. Despite this fact, hatred for the true Jews has blinded these people and they seem to ignore this fact. Ultimately, what the more radical Black Hebrew Israelites are advocating is a demonically inspired genocide of the Jewish race, much like many of the neo-Nazis of today desire. The origins of the Black Hebrew Israelite movement had its roots in Black Judaism, a belief system that evolved out of the black Pentecostal “holiness” movement. This certainly does NOT represent the true Body of Christ!
One of the first groups of Black Hebrews, the Church of God and Saints of Christ, was founded in 1896 by William Saunders Crowdy. He claimed to have a “divine revelation from God that told him that America’s recently emancipated slaves were God’s chosen people, the true Hebrews”. According to Black Judaism doctrine, when the Kingdom of Israel was destroyed, the Israelites were first scattered across the African continent and then selectively targeted by enemy African tribes who captured and sold them to European slave traders for bondage in the New World. These liars profess the common myth that slaves were randomly shackled up and carried off to slavery. In reality, slave traders sailed for months and days to get to specific pickup points. They knew what people they were taking — specifically, the lost tribes of Israel. Black Judaism leaders preached self-empowerment and economic independence, an early form of black nationalism that was foundational for later groups like the Nation of Islam. Be warned and do not grasp onto this lie directly from the father of lies, who is Satan. There is one chosen nation of ALMIGHTY GOD, the Jews, which ALMIGHTY GOD began with Abraham, and ended with JESUS CHRIST. The lie of Black Hebrew Israelites is not in the bible because it NEVER happened. THIS IS A WARNING TO ANYONE WHO PARTICIPATES IN THIS GARBAGE: YOU ARE MOCKING ALMIGHTY GOD, CURSING HIS CHOSEN PEOPLE, AND WILL BE CURSED BY HIM IF YOU DO NOT REPENT!
BEWARE – FALSE DOCTRINE OF BRITISH ISRAELISM
Now that Elizabeth, who ruled as monarch of the UK for the past 70 years has died, her son, Charles is now the reigning king. Be aware of the false doctrine called British Israelism, a movement of propaganda teaching that the people of England (or more broadly, the people of United Kingdom) are “genetically, racially, and linguistically the direct descendants” of the Ten Lost Tribes of ancient Israel. Charles, Klaus Schwab, and all these “globalists” believe in the wicked practice of eugenics, thinking they are the “chosen people” and everyone else is nothing but garbage, deserving of death or serving them. What is eugenics? the study of how to arrange reproduction within a human population to increase the occurrence of characteristics regarded as desirable. This practice has been discredited as unscientific and racially biased during the 20th century, especially after the adoption of its doctrines by the Nazis in order to justify their treatment of Jews, disabled people, and other minority groups.
This is a lie directly from the father of lies, who is Satan, the prince of this world. It is quite possible that Charles, who believes in the lie of climate change and worships “mother earth” instead of JESUS CHRIST, will promote this false doctrine. Do not be deceived folks, the only way to know the truth is to study The LORD GOD’S Word and rely on the guidance of The HOLY SPIRIT, a gift given to us once we are saved and serving JESUS CHRIST. The nation of Israel, the Hebrews, were started by ALMIGHTY GOD beginning with Abraham and ended with JESUS CHRIST! Read about the genealogy line of JESUS CHRIST in the LORD’S Word, the book of Matthew, chapter one. Study to show yourself approved in the eyes of ALMIGHTY GOD!
OTHER ENEMIES OF ISRAEL
HEZBOLLAH HAS BUILT MORE THAN 20 GUARD POSTS ALONG ISRAEL-LEBANON BORDER
Hezbollah, the Iranian-backed terrorist organization, has built more than 20 observation and guard posts along the Israel-Lebanon border in the past year. A few months ago, Israeli media reported that Hezbollah had constructed 15 outposts on the Israeli border, parallel to Israel’s fortified perimeter fence running along the approximately 90-mile shared border. Each of these 20 Hezbollah outposts contain an outlook tower, two to three housing units and storage facilities. The IDF reported that the Lebanese terrorist group had established an intelligence-gathering outpost on the Israeli border disguised as an environmental protection facility. Back in July, Gilad Erdan, Israeli Ambassador to the United Nations, demanded that the U.N. take action against Hezbollah regarding this atrocity. The flag of a fictional Lebanese civil organization, “Green Without Borders,” flies over the outposts. However, the IDF has exposed this non-existing organization which was founded by Hezbollah back in 2018.
Gilad Erdan warned Security Council and U.N. Secretary-General António Guterres in a letter that the “new reality on the Israel-Lebanon border points to a clear escalation that could ignite the entire region” and argued that the true objective of the posts is intelligence gathering. “Under the guise of the so-called ‘Green without Borders’ environmental organization, Hezbollah is expanding its terror footprints on a daily basis, just mere meters from Israel’s northern border, and from within UNIFIL’s area of operations,” he said. “The use of this organization as a front for Hezbollah’s malign activities has been recognized by the U.N. and described in several periodic reports of the secretary-general. As has been flagged by several U.N. reports and noted in relevant U.N. resolutions, this perverse tactic, of terror organizations hiding behind non-profits and NGOs, is a growing phenomenon that is not only employed by Hezbollah but by many other terror groups across the globe as well,” stated the letter. “These are military outposts for all intents and purposes, established and maintained by Hezbollah terrorists and not innocent Lebanese environmentalists. This is part of the broader picture of Hezbollah’s growing presence in southern Lebanon and yet another example of its ongoing hostile activity in the area,” the letter continues. “Israel continues to stress that the responsibility for Hezbollah’s expansion lies squarely on the shoulders of the Lebanese authorities and expects the Lebanese government to take immediate action to curb Hezbollah’s advancements and military buildup,” wrote Erdan.
ALL THE ENEMIES OF ISRAEL WILL COME TO REALIZE THAT ALMIGHTY GOD BLESSED THE JEWS WITH LEBANON, AS PART OF THE LAND HE GAVE THEM THOUSANDS OF YEARS AGO. IT IS JUST A MATTER OF TIME…
Deuteronomy 11:24 Every place whereon the soles of your feet shall tread shall be yours: from the wilderness and Lebanon, from the river, the river Euphrates, even unto the uttermost sea shall your coast be.
“ALLIANCE FOR GLOBAL JUSTICE” UNDER FIRE FOR SUPPORTING “PALESTINIANS”
Zionist Organization of America, the oldest pro-Israel nonprofit located in the United States, has called attention to the anti-Semitic practices of the Alliance for Global Justice (AFGJ). This organization is based in the United States with headquarters in the state of Arizona and has been proven to have strong ties with “Palestinian” terrorism. Therefore, Zionist Organization of America is asking payment processors, including credit cards and banks, to sever all ties with the Arizona-based Alliance of Global Justice, who has been legally criticized due to its fundraiser for Collectif Palestine Vaincra, a French company closely tied with the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, a U.S. terrorist organization. This French group belongs to a coalition called the Samidoun Palestinian Prisoner Solidarity Network. Morton A. Klein, president of Zionist Organization of America, stated, “This is not the first front group trying to raise money for Palestinian terrorists, and it won’t be the last. The enemies of Israel and the Jewish people are determined, which is why we have to stay vigilant and strong in our defense”. Klein continued, “Any group breaking the law by funding terrorist groups must be prosecuted and shut down.” Klein made reference to a law regarding U.S. groups that provided “material support” to aid terrorism. It has been discovered that the AFGJ has received millions of dollars from “liberal” organizations.Under 18 U.S. Code § 2339B(2), payment processors need to freeze funds raised for the PFLP’s agents and report the transactions to the U.S. Secretary of the Treasury. Fiscal sponsorship means groups without IRS tax-exempt status can receive services such as legal oversight, donation processing, and payroll services.
Now folks, this certainly looks good in print, doesn’t it? Of course, any organization that supports terrorism should be stopped in their tracks. But let’s look at the bigger picture of where this may lead in the future. The U.S. could certainly expand their definition of terrorism to include: anyone who claims to be a Christian and preaches the gospel of JESUS CHRIST, anyone who professes allegiance and loyalty to JESUS CHRIST instead of the government, or anyone who has their own opinion, rather than go along with the “status quo”. The U.S. could pervert the existing laws to determine these certain groups of people are “terrorists” and freeze their bank accounts as well. Just something to think about…
HAMAS CALLS FOR INCREASED “RESISTANCE AND REVOLUTION” AGAINST ISRAEL
Hamas, a “Palestinian” Sunni-Islamic fundamentalist, militant, and nationalist organization, continues its ongoing campaign of hatred against Israel. To celebrate the 35th anniversary of their founding, Hamas announced a series of events in the Gaza Strip which will include military parades and rallies, with a major rally in Gaza City on December 14th. The mayhem began in 2006 when the Islamist movement won the elections for the Palestinian parliament, the Palestinian Legislative Council. A year later, Hamas seized control of the Gaza Strip through a violent coup that led to the collapse of the Palestinian Authority. Since then, various attempts by Israel and the PA to undermine Hamas or remove it from power have been unsuccessful. Hamas has chosen to mark this year’s anniversary using their fabricated map of “Palestine” stretching from the Mediterranean Sea to the Jordan River and from Rosh HaNikra in the North to Eilat in the South. Attached to the right side of the map are a rifle and a Palestinian flag. Hamas has confirmed the rifle symbolizes their group’s strategy of continuing the armed struggle “as the only option for liberating all of Palestine.” Since its founding in 1987, Hamas has carried out thousands of terrorist attacks against Israel.
Hamas officials said this year’s anniversary of their founding would be held under the slogan “We are headed toward Jerusalem with a roaring flood.” Hamas is determined to “liberate Jerusalem and its holy sites” and foil any attempt to “Judaize al-Aqsa Mosque or divide it in time and space [between Muslims and Jews].” On the eve of the anniversary, Hamas called on Palestinians to step up their “resistance and revolution” against Israel. Senior Hamas official Osama al-Mazini announced the launch of the Hamas celebrations during a press conference outside the home of the group’s founder, Sheikh Ahmed Yassin, who was assassinated by Israel in 2004. Mazini stated his group aims to send a message that Israel will not be permitted to “Judaize” or divide Jerusalem and al-Aqsa Mosque. Hamas would continue to support the Palestinians in Judea and Samaria in their fight against Israel, he said. Addressing Prime Minister-designate Benjamin Netanyahu, Mazini said the “warriors will come to uproot you… We will continue to carry the banner of truth and resistance until the liberation of Palestine.” Another Hamas official, Maher Sabra had a message for Israel: “We are coming with a roaring flood to uproot the occupier and that the Gaza Strip stands, with all its capabilities, together with Judea and Samaria (West Bank) and Jerusalem.” “You have no place on our land, and if you want peace, leave Palestine,” he told the Palestinian news site Safa.
HERE IS NEWS FOR YOU, HAMAS: YOU WILL NEVER ACHIEVE YOUR OBJECTIVE, AND UNLESS YOU TURN AWAY FROM CURSING ISRAEL, YOU ALL WILL BE CURSED! THIS LAND BELONGS TO THE JEWS, NOT ANY OF YOU, SAYS ALMIGHTY GOD!!!
EU’S “ILLEGAL” ATTEMPT TO STEAL BIBLICAL LAND
A leaked European Union document has revealed it is illegally trying to create a “Palestinian state” which is an atrocity to the Jewish people. As a result, forty members of Israel’s parliament, sent a harshly intense letter to three top European Union officials. The Knesset accused the EU of working against the Jewish state in by attempting to carve out territory for the creation of a Palestinian state.
The letter stated, “We learned of an official policy document of the European Union, a document the gravity of which cannot be overstated, one that leaves no room for doubt as to the one-sidedness and animosity of the EU towards the State of Israel and the Jewish people. The document completely ignores our people’s historical affinity to our homeland, completely ignores the political agreements and the status of the State of Israel in Area C and seeks to establish the 1949 borders as Israel’s final-status permanent borders – in complete disregard of the Jewish communities in the area.” Area C is located in Judea and Samaria, which the antichrist UN renamed the “West Bank”. Approximately 500,000 Israelis and about 300,000 Palestinians live in Area C, which makes up 60% of the total area of Judea and Samaria. Palestinians want Area C as part of an independent state, while a number of Israeli parties want the territory to be absorbed into Israel proper. The EU leaked document surfaced ahead of Benjamin Netanyahu’s efforts to form a new Israeli government. The forty Knesset members also stated that the document “exposes only the tip of the iceberg of the EU’s activities to undermine the State of Israel. We have not lost sight of your ongoing and continuous contribution, both direct and indirect, to campaigns designed to tarnish Israel’s name, from blood libels regarding alleged violence on the part of settlers, through unfounded accusations that Israel deliberately harms children, to specious comparisons of the policies of the government of the State of Israel to those of the Apartheid regime in South Africa of yesteryear.”
The leaked six-page document entitled “European Joint Development Programme for Area C” has surfaced to reveal the true ugliness and expose the EU as the enemy of Israel that it has always been. Peter Stano, spokesman for EU Foreign and Security Policy, stated that the High Representative of the EU for Foreign Policy, Josep Borrell, “doesn’t seem to be among the addressees, so we cannot really comment on the substance. For that you would need to contact the press teams of the three Presidents mentioned.” Of course, the three mentioned presidents: President of the European Commission Ursula von der Leyen, President of the European Council Charles Michel, and President of the European Parliament Roberta Metsola, have not responded regarding this matter.
THE CLOSER WE DRAW TO THE END TIMES, THE MORE WE WILL CERTAINLY SEE THE TRUE ENEMIES OF ISRAEL REVEAL THEIR TRUE SELVES!
BEN-GVIR VOWS TO RETURN TO TEMPLE MOUNT
Itamar Ben-Gvir, Israeli National Security Minister, vowed on 01-25-2023 to continue visiting the Temple Mount. This declaration was announced just one day after Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu informed Jordan’s King Abdullah that he would uphold the status quo concerning interfaith relations in Jerusalem. In response to this news, Ben-Gvir stated, “I devise my own policy on the Temple Mount, not that of the Jordanian government.” “I went up to the Temple Mount and I will continue to go up to the Temple Mount. “With all due respect to Jordan, Israel is an independent country. I assume the Americans understand freedom of movement; in the United States, no person would be prevented from going anywhere just because he is a Jew,” stated Ben-Gvir. The Jordan Palace of Amman aggressively responded when earlier this month Ben-Gvir visited the Temple Mount in the Israeli capital. Jordan decried Ben-Gvir “in the severest of terms [for] the storming of the Al-Aqsa Mosque and violation of its sanctity,” despite the Israeli minister not having approached the mosque. Back in December, King Abdullah made it very clear that he was ready for a conflict should Israel’s new government violate “red lines” because Jordan holds custodianship of Muslim and Christian holy sites in the Israeli capital, including the Al-Aqsa Mosque.
Netanyahu released a statement after Ben-Gvir visited the Mount, saying that his government was “committed to strictly maintaining the status quo, without changes, on the Temple Mount.” The Israeli PM also denied assertions that Ben-Gvir’s visit to the holy site constituted a change in the understandings governing activities there. “Under the status quo, ministers have gone up to the Temple Mount in recent years, including [then-]Public Security Minister Gilad Erdan; therefore, the claim that a change has been made in the status quo is without foundation,” stated Netanyahu. The Temple Mount is considered the holiest site in Jerusalem, and Jerusalem has been given to the Jews by ALMIGHTY GOD, case closed!
2Chronicles 6:6 ALMIGHTY GOD STATES: But I have chosen Jerusalem, that my name might be there; and have chosen David to be over my people Israel.
Zechariah 2:12 GOD’S WORD STATES: And the LORD shall inherit Judah his portion in the holy land, and shall choose Jerusalem again.
NETANYAHU MEETS WITH JORDAN’S KING ABDULLAH
On 01-24-2023 Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu met with Jordan’s King Abdullah in Jordan. According to the royal court, a meeting between the two leaders was needed regarding the status quo of the Al-Aqsa mosque in Jerusalem. The fuel that ignited this fire was the recent visit of Itamar Ben-Gvir, Israeli National Security Minister, to the Temple Mount. Ben-Gvir’s visit was considered provocative by the “Palestinians” (who cares?) which caused an outcry among Arab states. This area is considered by Islam to be the third-holiest site, and Judaism’s most sacred site. King Abdullah informed Netanyahu that Israel should respect the “historic and legal status quo in the holy Aqsa mosque and not violate it.” Abdullah told Netanyahu that, “an end to violence was crucial to allow long-stalled peace talks to resume between the Palestinians and Israel.”
Again folks, this is the ongoing false “peace” treaty of the antichrist kingdom and Israel will form an alliance with the antichrist, (the beast system) believing he is the Messiah. However, once the Jews realize they have been deceived by the antichrist, they will come to believe on JESUS CHRIST, their true MESSIAH, and call on His Name. This is when JESUS CHRIST will return, set His feet upon the Mount of Olives, and establish His kingdom on this earth for a thousand years, while Satan is cast into the bottomless pit.. After this time period, Satan will be loosed out of his prison and the Gog and Magog war (great battle) will take place. Satan, along with all those who reject JESUS CHRIST and are against the Jews will be devoured by the fire of ALMIGHTY GOD (Revelation 20:9). Then the devil will be cast into the lake of fire, where the beast (antichrist) and false prophet have already been cast (Revelation 20:10).
Daniel 9:27 And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.
Zechariah 12:10 And I will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit of grace and supplications: and they shall look upon me whom they have pierced, and they shall mourn for him, as one mourneth for his only son, and shall be in bitterness for him, as one that is in bitterness for his firstborn.
Zechariah 14:4 And his feet shall stand in that day upon the mount of Olives, which is before Jerusalem on the east, and the mount of Olives shall cleave in the midst thereof toward the east and toward the west, and there shall be a very great valley; and half of the mountain shall remove toward the north, and half of it toward the south.
Revelation 20:2-3 And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years, And cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal upon him, that he should deceive the nations no more, till the thousand years should be fulfilled: and after that he must be loosed a little season.
ABDULLAH WARNS ISRAEL NOT TO CROSS JERUSALEM “RED LINES” AT HOLY SITES
King Abdullah II, King of Jordan, warned that he was ready for a conflict if Israel’s incoming government violate “red lines” regarding relations at Jerusalem’s holy sites. “If people want to get into a conflict with us, we’re quite prepared,” stated Abdullah. In addition, Abdullah stated, “I always like to believe that let’s look at the glass half full, but we have certain red lines… And if people want to push those red lines, then we will deal with that.” Since 1967 Jordan has been the keeper of holy sites in the Israeli capital’s Old City, including the Al Aqsa Mosque that sits atop the Temple Mount, considered the most holy site in Judaism. While Muslims are allowed to freely visit and worship at the mosque, Jews are severely restricted from accessing this site where two biblical temples stood and are banned from praying there. Abdullah also warned that the Palestinians could launch another terror war if “red lines” are crossed. “We have to be concerned about a next intifada,” he said, adding: “If that happens, that’s a complete breakdown of law and order and one that neither the Israelis nor the Palestinians will benefit from. I think there is a lot of concern from all of us in the region, including those in Israel that are on our side on this issue, to make sure that doesn’t happen.” The Palestinian Authority stated that the incoming Israeli government’s policy agenda constituted a “dangerous escalation.” Nabil Abu Rudeineh issued a veiled warning that there would be ongoing violence unless a Palestinian state was created. Abu Rudeineh called on the Biden administration “to turn its words into deeds since it is committed to the two-state solution, without which there will be no stability in the region.”
Folks, if you cannot clearly see what is unfolding, please pray that The LORD GOD removes the veil from your eyes and your heart, so you can see the truth. King Abdullah is not an ally of Israel, nor is the United States. Anyone who desires to divide the land of Israel is in effect cursing the Jews, and according to ALMIGHTY GOD, will be cursed! UNTIL JESUS CHRIST RETURNS, NO PEACE WILL BE ACHIEVED ON THIS EARTH! IT WILL BE THE FALSE PEACE OF THE ANTICHRIST KINGDOM THAT WILL ENSLAVE MANY PEOPLE WHO REJECT JESUS CHRIST AND BELIEVE A LIE!
Abdullah II, King of Jordan and the Hashemite Kingdom is a direct descendant of the false “prophet” Mohammad, therefore being a Muslim. Jordan is also prophesied to be the only nation to escape the conquering of the antichrist. (Daniel 11:41-42). We certainly know that the nation of Jordan is featured in end times prophecy.
JORDANIAN ENVOY DELAYED FROM ENTERING AL-AQSA MOSQUE (AREA OF TEMPLE MOUNT)
On 01-17-2023, Israeli police blocked the way of the Jordanian envoy when he attempted to enter the Al-Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem. Jordan was unsettled by this move and summoned the Israeli ambassador to Amman to protest this action. Ghassan Majali, Jordan’s Foreign Minister to Israel, was prevented from entering the mosque because he arrived “without any prior coordination with police officials”. An Israeli officer did not recognize the Jordanian envoy and notified his commander regarding the unexpected visit. The officers waited for further instructions on this matter and detained Majali, along with Azzam al-Khatib, director of the Jerusalem Waqf. Majali refused to wait and made the decision to leave the site, according to Israeli police officers. About two hours later, Jordanian state-run media reported that Majali finally entered the compound without showing any kind of permission and held talks with al-Khatib, who “briefed him about the Israeli violations in Al-Aqsa.” In addition to the Al-Aqsa Mosque, this land also contains the Dome of the Rock, and most importantly, the Temple Mount, the holiest site in Judaism. When ALMIGHTY GOD blessed the Jews with the victory of the 1967 Mideast War, Israel established control of East Jerusalem and is in charge of security at the site. However, Jordanian “religious” authorities are considered the custodians of the site as part of an unofficial “peace” agreement with Israel in 1994, despite the fact that Jordan renounced any claims to this territory in 1988. Within the1994 “peace” treaty, the 9th article states that Israel commits to “respect the present special role of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan in Muslim Holy shrines in Jerusalem” and that “when negotiations on the permanent status will take place, Israel will give high priority to the Jordanian historic role in these shrines”.
Folks, there will come a day when all of this confusion will be done away with, ALMIGHTY GOD will restore all of this land to the Jews, and the enemies of the Jews will be destroyed. Pay attention to the “Hashemite” Kingdom of Jordan, because it is found in bible prophecy. ALMIGHTY GOD said there would be a power restored on the ancient territory of Moab in the latter days and we are all witnesses to this event right now. If you read the book of Daniel chapter eleven, you will receive insight on this matter. The territory of Moab is considered modern Jordan, who “escape” the Northern invasion. This indicates Jordan is not an ally of Israel, nor will they defend the Jews.
BEN-GVIR VISTS THE TEMPLE MOUNT – PROVOKING ISRAEL’S ENEMIES
Israeli Cabinet minister Ben-Gvir followed through with his plan and ascended the Temple Mount on Tuesday, 01-03-2023, escorted by a company of police officers. This joyous event marks the first time in five years that a sitting Israeli minister visited the Temple Mount, which is considered Judaism’s holiest site. During Ben-Gvir’s visit, the entrance for Israelis to the Temple Mount was blocked. Sadly enough, the visit attracted condemnation from enemies of Israel, including “Palestinian” militant groups voicing their usual threats. The IDF reported that Gaza militants tried to fire a rocket into southern Israel; however, their misfire caused the projectile to hit in the Hamas-controlled territory instead.
Describing the Temple Mount as “the most important place for the Jewish people,” Ben-Gvir described what he called “racist discrimination” against Jewish visits to the site. Since Israel captured the site in 1967, Jews have been permitted to visit but not pray there. Ben-Gvir has long called for greater Jewish access to the holy site. Palestinians consider the mosque a national symbol and view such visits as provocative and as a potential precursor to Israel seizing control over the compound. And of course, the United States, along with the so-called “Biden” administration has voiced their disapproval and appear to agree with the enemies of Israel. U.S. Ambassador, Tom Nides, stated he “has been very clear in conversations with the Israeli government on the issue of preserving the status quo in Jerusalem’s holy sites. Nides went on to say, “The United Arab Emirates, which established full diplomatic ties with Israel in 2020, “strongly condemned the storming of Al-Aqsa Mosque courtyard by an Israeli minister under the protection of Israeli forces.” It called on Israel to “halt serious and provocative violations taking place there.”
Other critics of Ben-Gvir’s visit are Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Qatar, Turkey, Egypt, and Jordan, which acts as custodian of the Temple Mount. The fierce aggression toward Israel regarding this matter is certainly nothing new. “Palestinian” demonstrators provoked Israeli security forces in and around the site in 2021 which ignited an 11-day war with Hamas. Hamas spokesman Hazem Qassem stated Ben-Gvir’s visit was “a continuation of the Zionist’s occupation aggression on our sacred places and war on our Arab identity.” “Our Palestinian people will continue defending their holy places and Al Aqsa Mosque,” he said. Lebanon’s Hezbollah terrorist group, who provoked a war against Israel in a monthlong war in 2006, said the visit threatened to “blow up the region.” Responding to the outcry, Netanyahu late Tuesday said Israel remains committed to “strictly maintaining the status quo” at the site. “The claim that a change has been made in the status quo is without foundation.” Ben-Gvir stated, “Our government will not surrender to threats from Hamas, “The Temple Mount is the most important place for the people of Israel. We maintain the freedom of movement for Muslims and Christians, but Jews also go up to the site, and those who make threats must be dealt with with an iron fist,”.
The propaganda and the carnival barkers continue with the anti-Israel rhetoric, folks. THE MOST IMPORTANT MATTER MOST PEOPLE TEND TO OVERLOOK IS THE FACT THAT ALMIGHTY GOD BLESSED THE JEWS WITH ALL OF THE LAND OF ISRAEL, INCLUDING THE AREA WHERE THE TEMPLE MOUNT IS LOCATED. It does not matter what Tom Nides, the “Biden” administration, the “Palestinians”, or any leader of any nation thinks about the matter. The world is polluted by the prince of this world, who is Satan. These puppets of the world system have allowed themselves to be guided by lies and hatred within their stony hearts and spiritually blinded eyes. WHY IS IT OKAY FOR MUSLIMS TO TAKE OVER A HOLY SITE OF THE JEWISH PEOPLE? AND WHY IS IT OKAY FOR EVERYONE ELSE TO POINT THEIR FINGERS AT ISRAEL, SCOLDING THEM LIKE CHILDREN WHEN THEY ATTEMPT TO OBEY WHAT ALMIGHTY GOD COMMANDED THEM TO DO?
There will come a day when all nations will look to the Jews and realize that they are indeed the chosen nation of ALMIGHTY GOD. In the book of Zechariah 8:23 ALMIGHTY GOD STATES: Thus saith the LORD of hosts; In those days it shall come to pass, that ten men shall take hold out of all languages of the nations, even shall take hold of the skirt of him that is a Jew, saying, We will go with you: for we have heard that God is with you.
Isaiah 54:15 Behold, they shall surely gather together, but not by me: whosoever shall gather together against thee shall fall for thy sake.
Zechariah 12:9 And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will seek to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem.
Zechariah 1:16 Therefore thus saith the LORD; I am returned to Jerusalem with mercies: my house shall be built in it, saith the LORD of hosts, and a line shall be stretched forth upon Jerusalem.
ARAB ATTACKS JEW ON TEMPLE MOUNT
One of the most recent assault of Arabs upon Jews has taken place on the Temple Mount, considered the holiest site in Judaism. The victim reported he was walking slightly behind a group of Jewish visitors toward the site when an Arab attacked him from behind and broke his glasses. The attacker was wrestled to the ground and arrested. “I stood a little further away from the rest when I noticed the Arab approaching”, the victim informed Beyadenu, a Temple Mount activist organization. “I signaled to the policeman to watch him but while I was signaling, I felt someone coming up behind me, grab at me, and trying to strangle me. I fell to the ground and managed to get away, thank God. My glasses were broken, and my shirt was torn. The policeman ran to him and took control of him”. Tom Nisani, CEO of the Beyadenu organization, responded in a statement. “The Arabs roam freely on the Temple Mount as compared to the groups of Jews who are restricted in every way. This encourages the Arabs to feel like they own the Temple Mount and can act as they wish. There must be a change in the attitude of the Israeli government to the Temple Mount in order to prevent such incidents. Our compliments and gratitude to the policemen who responded quickly. It must be ensured that the terrorist will now go to prison for a long time”. Nisani also noted that just recently, a group of Arabs taunted Jewish visitors to the Temple Mount with cries if, “Khaybar, Khaybar, ya Yahud”. This is an antisemitic chant used by Muslims to intimidate Jews. Funny, you never hear stories about Jews taunting or viciously attacking Arabs! This antagonism has been going on for many years and will certainly not change until JESUS CHRIST returns. Then the unsaved Jews will finally realize that He is indeed the Messiah!
When I hear of such matters, I cannot help but ponder the Old Testament account of Ishmael taunting Isaac. In the book of Genesis 21:8-10 GOD’S WORD STATES: And the child grew, and was weaned: and Abraham made a great feast the same day that Isaac was weaned. And Sarah saw the son of Hagar the Egyptian, which she had born unto Abraham, mocking. Wherefore she said unto Abraham, Cast out this bondwoman and her son: for the don of this bondwoman shall not be heir with my son, even with Isaac. WHAT DID ALMIGHTY GOD INSTRUCT ABRAHAM TO DO? Genesis 21:12 And God said unto Abraham, Let it not be grievous in thy sight because of the lad, and because of thy bondwoman; in all that Sarah hath said unto thee, hearken unto her voice: for in Isaac shall thy seed be called.
Ishmael is considered of Arab descent because his mother was Egyptian. Isaac is considered of Jewish descent because his mother and father were both Jewish, the beginning of the genealogy line of the nation of Israel. According to ALMIGHTY GOD, Isaac is the one The LORD formed His covenant with, not Ishmael. This fact will NEVER change!
CHRISTIAN VISITORS AT TEMPLE MOUNT FORCED BY MUSLIMS TO WEAR YELLOW GARMENTS!
Some Christian tourists visiting the Temple Mount with their pastor have been forced by the Jerusalem Islamic Waqf to wear garments with bright yellow stripes on them. In the Islamic world, the color of yellow represents that non-Muslims are lower than Muslims. The Waqf is the Jordanian entity that has a custodial status at Jerusalem’s holy sites, which includes the Temple Mount. Non-Muslims, including Jews, can visit this site where the Holy Temple of Jerusalem used to stand; however, under severe restrictions. The pastor who led the tour group explained that he had visited Israel dozens of times and ascended the Temple Mount several times in the past. This was the first time he had been required to wear the strange garments, and he added that the women felt humiliated. The pastor described the episode to Amit Barak, the head of the Jerusalemites Initiative and a tour guide. He emphasized that due to the humiliating incident, he will no longer take groups to the Temple Mount. Do we witness the Jews forcing anyone to dress according to their demands? Do Christians force anyone different than them to dress according to their demands?
The Temple Mount activist organization, Beyadenu conducts tours of the Temple Mount. Their guides have recently witnessed Waqf representatives requiring Christian and non-Muslim tourists to wear the same long garments with the yellow stripe. Yaakov Hayman, an activist for Jewish prayer on the Temple Mount, frequently visits the site and has observed the Waqf telling tourists to wear the garment on numerous occasions. “It is not new, but it is becoming more frequent,” Hayman said. “Since it was clearly intended to be humiliating, Women for the Temple, a division of Beyadenu, made modest skirts available for women”, stated Hayman. But since the police intentionally separate Israeli Jews from tourists, the skirts have not been made available to tourists. Akiva Ariel, a spokesman for Beyadenu, explained that non-Israeli visitors are not given instructions at the site. While the Israeli police will not prevent them from praying at the site, Ariel has overheard tour guides instructing their groups to refrain. Christian tourists who violate this have been verbally and even physically assaulted by Muslims at the site.
ONCE AGAIN FOLKS, THE MUSLIMS HAVE NO RIGHT TO PREVENT ANYONE FROM PRAYING ACCORDING TO THEIR BELIEFS, ESPECIALLY THE JEWISH PEOPLE BECAUSE THE TEMPLE MOUNT ENCOMPASSES THEIR LAND GIVEN TO THEM BY ALMIGHTY GOD GENERATIONS AGO! THERE WILL COME A DAY WHEN ALL THE ENEMIES OF ISRAEL WILL REALIZE THE TRUTH AND REPENT OR CONTINUE TO HARDEN THEIR HEARTS AGAINST THE LORD GOD AND BE CONDEMNED TO HELL FOR ETERNITY!
Isaiah 60:2-3 For, behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people: but the LORD shall arise upon thee, and his glory shall be seen upon thee. And the Gentiles shall come to thy light, and kings to the brightness of thy rising.
Isaiah 60:12 For the nation and kingdom that will not serve thee shall perish; yes, those nations shall be utterly wasted.
US OPPOSES JEWISH PRAYER ON TEMPLE MOUNT – NETANYAHU AGREES
The Likud Party rejected a demand from their coalition partners to allow Jews to pray on the Temple Mount. Jewish prayer at the site is mandated by Israeli law; however, Likud leader Benjamin Netanyahu has historically refused to enforce this law. Netanyahu made it clear there was one event when he would permit Jews to pray at their holiest site; to greet the Messiah. Coalition negotiations were held about three weeks ago and the Otzma Yehudit negotiating team was led by Chanamel Dorfman. Dorfman reportedly called for Netanyahu to allow Jews equal rights on the Temple Mount but the Likud negotiating team refused. Netanyahu became furious with Dorfman due to his demands. “The status quo on the Temple Mount will be preserved,” reported a Likud source.
This decision mirrors the opinion of the Biden administration that was expressed last week by Antony Blinken, Secretary of State. Blinken said that the administration would oppose any changes in the status quo at the Temple Mount. Thomas Nides, the ambassador to Israel, refused to commit to meeting with Ben Gvir, promised the national security portfolio, and demanding the permission of Jews to pray on the Temple Mount. The current “status quo” regarding Jerusalem is based on a decree of Ottoman sultan Osman III in 1757. This decree preserved the division of ownership and responsibilities of various Christian holy places, which includes the Temple Mount. The details were further formalized in the 1949 UN Conciliation Commission after the 1947–1949 war. The firman (decree) ensured the Jewish right to visit their holy sites with limitations. However, when Jordan occupied Jerusalem, Hebron, and Bethlehem in 1948, Jews were barred from the holy sites and were not permitted to return to their holy sites until the IDF conquered them in 1967.
Religious equality is a basic tenet in Israeli law and Jewish prayer has been upheld several times in the Supreme Court, defending the right of Jews to pray on the Temple Mount. An exception to this rule is the courts allow the police to exercise their judgment based on security considerations during that specific time. Because of this measure, the police restrict Jewish rights on the Temple Mount for fear that the Arab Muslims will react violently. During last year’s elections, Netanyahu explained permitting Jews to pray on the Temple Mount, “would have ignited the Middle East and brought down the anger of one billion Muslims on us. And there are things I am not willing to do in order to win the elections.” In 2019, Netanyahu was quoted as saying, “The right of the Jewish people to their holy place, the Temple Mount, is unquestionable. I believe that the right of prayer for Jews in this place should be arranged, and even more so that we should provide for the freedom of worship for all religions in Jerusalem.” At the time he set a timeframe for Jews to pray at their holiest site: “…it will happen, and before the arrival of the Messiah.”
First of all, the United States has no right to put their nose into the business of the Jewish people with their arrogance. Second of all, ALMIGHTY GOD blessed the nation of Israel (Jews) with their land, which includes the Temple Mount, and all will be restored to them in the perfect timing of ALMIGHTY GOD!!!
PROTESTS AGAINST NETANYAHU GOVERNMENT
FORMER ISRAELI PM LAPID JOINS IN PROTEST AGAINST NETANYAHU GOVERNMENT
Yair Lapid, former Israeli PM, joined masses of protestors on 01-21-2023 in the Israeli city of Tel Aviv. According to Israeli media, it is estimated that 100,000 people turned out for the rally, considered the largest gathering since Netanyahu returned to office as prime minister of Israel. Lapid has voiced his frustration several times regarding the new Israeli government, officially sworn in on 12-29-2022. “People who love the state came to defend its democracy, its courts, the idea of a common life and a common good, “stated Lapid on social media. He also confirmed he would, “not give up until we win.”
A major point of conflict is the Judicial Reform Bill, proposed by Yariv Levin, Israeli Justice Minister. This proposed reform bill includes an “override clause” that would enable the Knesset to reverse Supreme Court decisions to overturn legislation. In addition, this bill would also change the way judges are appointed, giving the majority on the selection committee to elected officials, and eliminate the legal justification of “lack of reasonableness. This would actually benefit and strengthen the Israeli government because the Supreme Court judges have been known to cast out perfectly legal government actions, due to the fact they appeared unreasonable to one of the justices. Actions of this nature on a regular basis continues to weaken the structure of the coalition, providing an unstable government for the state of Israel. The major news media sources are calling Netanyahu’s government “right wing”. Just what does that mean? It means this coalition is focused on preserving the beliefs of the Jewish people throughout the land of Israel by adhering to the instruction given to them by ALMIGHTY GOD. It means that the Jews desire to claim all of the land that ALMIGHTY GOD blessed them with thousands of years ago.
A “right wing government” also translates to free enterprise, which establishes law and policies to treat the poor, middle, and rich classes the same. The problem remains that people desire to be “taken care of” with government hand-outs through the concept of socialism, the opposite of free enterprise. This may paint an ideal picture to many people right now because it would seem that “special” government supported benefits would be given to those without capital. This is especially enticing to younger people because they desire for someone to pay off all their debts and enjoy being coddled like spoiled children. They desire to live in whatever way they choose, without repercussions. However, in the end, socialism is conjured up to enslave the masses because it gives the government total control over the basic rights of the people.
Remember folks, this is how the Nazi regime started, by rejecting capitalism and embracing socialism. The Nazis instituted major public works projects such as the Autobahn, promised full employment, and dramatically increased government spending. However, once the Nazis achieved their objective, they supported and were supported by big business, and they even privatized a few government-operated services. Times have certainly not changed and despite many people saying “never again” it is happening right now. Sadly enough, this is why Lapid, Gantz, Golan, and Ya’alon are standing in unity with the protestors, because they apparently have grasped onto this dangerous ideology. Remember folks, Lapid gladly signed over Israel’s right to the Karish gas field, does this really make him an ally of the Jews? We know in the end that ALMIGHTY GOD is in control and Israel will be completely restored to the Jewish people, because the LORD says so in His Word. However, before that day arrives, there will be many conflicts, and this just happens to be one of them right now. HOLD ON FOLKS, IT IS GOING TO BE A BUMPY RIDE! Make sure you are saved and serving JESUS CHRIST, so you have the strength to endure.
DECEPTIVE POLICIES OF THE UNITED STATES
U.S. AND “PALESTINIAN AUTHORITY” PRESSURE ISRAEL TO STOP NEW SETTLEMENTS
In response to U.S. and PA pressure, the Netanyahu government has agreed to forego any new settlements in Judea and Samaria. As a result, the “Palestinian Authority” has ended their U.N. Security Council resolution that condemns Israeli housing plans in these areas. The PA draft resolution demanded an immediate halt to all Israeli building activities across the Green Line and was to be voted on as early as today (02-20-2023). The Green Line is the boundary set out in the 1949 Armistice Agreements between the armies of Israel and those of Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon and Syria after the 1948 Arab-Israeli War. Instead of proceeding with the PA resolution, the U.N. Security Council is expected to issue a non-binding statement supported by Washington that denounces both Israeli housing plans and recent “Palestinian” terror attacks. The anti-Semitic “Biden Administration” has been pressuring Israel to seek a “compromise” and Antony Blinken, U.S. Secretary of State, pushed “commitment to a negotiated two-state solution and opposition to policies that endanger its viability”. Israel will now postpone any new construction beyond the Green Line, delay planned demolitions of “Palestinian” homes built without permits in eastern Jerusalem, reduce evictions of “Palestinians” in illegal housing, and limit IDF raids in “Palestinian” cities.
The U.S. puppets “Biden” and “Blinken” are falsely attributing the reason for these extreme measures to restore “calm”. Adding fuel to the fire, the foreign ministers of France, Germany and Italy, the British foreign secretary and the U.S. secretary of state issued a joint statement saying they were “deeply troubled” by Israel’s recent decision to advance “nearly 10,000 settlement units” and its intention “to begin a process to normalize nine outposts that were previously deemed illegal under Israeli law.” Several U.S. lawmakers, including House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.), Majority Leader Steve Scalise (R-La.) and Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Michael McCaul (R-Texas) called on “Biden” to veto the “biased, anti-Israel” initiative. The letter stated, “As the U.N. Security Council once again moves to consider another one-sided, biased, anti-Israel resolution, it is imperative that the United States maintain its position that only direct negotiations between Israelis and Palestinians can yield progress. For this reason, we urge your administration to use the voice and vote of the United States to oppose and veto any anti-Israel action, including resolutions, at the U.N. Security Council.” The office of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu stated that Israel would not greenlight any new settlements in Judea and Samaria beyond nine such outposts built without authorization that it approved retroactively earlier this month. However, there was no mention of the thousands of additional settlement homes in existing settlements officials say are to be soon approved.
Despite all of this pressure upon Israel, Finance Minister Bezalel Smotrich has vowed to promote unrestrained construction in Jewish communities in Judea and Samaria, regardless of opposition from the “Biden” administration. “The real response to [Palestinian] terror is to continue to build, to continue to set roots in the Land of Israel,” stated Smotrich at a meeting of his Religious Zionism Party in Givat Harel in the Binyamin region, one of the nine outposts the Security Cabinet decided to legalize. “The American response is entirely understandable,” he continued, but “the [Biden] administration knows that this government is committed to the settlements. There’s nothing wrong with two friends having disputes. They understand, and that’s the way things will continue.” An Israeli official said that no concessions have been made to the P.A. with a view to thwarting its diplomatic offensive at the U.N. Israel’s Security Cabinet unanimously decided to legalize the communities in Judea and Samaria in response to a wave of deadly terrorist attacks in Jerusalem.
U.S. SECRETARY OF STATE BLINKEN VISITS ISRAEL
U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken is in Israel this week (01-29-2023) in the aftermath of the most recent wave of violence to rock the country. Blinken is also scheduled to visit Egypt after spending time in primarily the Judea and Samaria region of Israel. Blinken focused on “de-escalation” with Israeli PM Netanyahu and PA leader Abbas because of the ongoing violence between Arabs (“Palestinians”) and Israelis, and the recent punitive measures Netanyahu has imposed on “Palestinian” terrorists. This would include sealing and demolishing the homes of “Palestinian” attackers, canceling social security benefits for their families, and handing out more weapons to Israeli civilians. Netanyahu’s announcement is a response to the recent synagogue attack by a “Palestinian” who murdered seven Israelis and wounded five others in Jerusalem. And U.S. “President Biden” states, “the terrorist who murdered seven Jews coming out of a Jerusalem synagogue on Friday evening was striking a blow against the civilized world. ” SERIOUSLY! AND REMEMBER FOLKS, THIS IS COMING FROM THE MOUTH OF A GROWN MAN. NO, JOE BIDEN, THIS TERRORIST INTENDED TO MURDER JEWS IN COLD BLOOD, NOT THE “CIVILIZED WORLD”!
This tragedy comes days after a deadly raid in Jenin, when IDF soldiers were defending themselves against armed “Palestinian” terrorists. As a result, 10 “Palestinians” were killed, most of them were identified as terrorists. The recent violence has made January one of the bloodiest months in Judea, Samaria, and east Jerusalem in several years. Blinken’s trip has been planned for several weeks, following prior visits by U.S. national Security Advisor, Jake Sullivan, and CIA Director, William Burns.
Of course, the United States has to put their “two cents” in where it is certainly not needed. They proclaim themselves to be friends of Israel. If they were truly allies of Israel, the United States would not also be siding with the enemies of Israel. In addition, the U.S. would not try to persuade Israel to divide their land that ALMIGHTY GOD blessed them with generations ago. The United States is concerned about Netanyahu’s promise to strengthen Judea and Samaria, the land of the Jews that the “Palestinians” desire to claim as their own. Bezalel Smotrich, Netanyahu’s, Cabinet Minister, in charge of settlement policy, said he would seek new construction in a strategic section of Judea and Samaria called E1. The U.S. has repeatedly blocked previous attempts by Israel to develop the area. The U.S. has blocked this new construction because it throws a “monkey wrench” into their plans to carry out this false peace treaty and continue to advance their wicked agenda. We know according to bible prophecy that Israel will endure many trials and tribulations before many of them come to accept JESUS CHRIST as their Messiah. Until that time arrives, ALMIGHTY GOD is still on His throne and watching all things as His Divine Plan continues to unfold.
US THREATENING TO CUT WEAPONS SUPPLY TO ISRAEL
Daniel Kurtzer, former US ambassador to Israel under George W. Bush, and Aaron David Miller, US Middle East peace negotiator during several administrations, are urging the Biden Administration to cut weapons supplies to Israel if the incoming Israeli government expels Arabs, annexes “Palestinian” land, or decides against a “two-state solution”. Kurtzer and Miller have called for an “unprecedented and controversial” break from US military and diplomatic support for Israel if “the most extreme government in the history of the state” pursues the stated aims of some of its members.
These two men speak of the new Israeli government possibly engaging in “efforts to change the status of the West Bank”, and warning against partial or wholesale annexation of “Palestinian” land to Israel. “Israel should be told that, while the United States will continue to support its ally’s legitimate security requirements, it will not provide offensive weapons or other assistance for malignant Israeli actions in Jerusalem or the occupied territories,” stated Kurtzer and Miller. The pair also called for Washington to end its almost total protection of Israel in diplomatic forums, including the UN security council and the international court of justice, if its government takes “actions that deserve to be called out and condemned”.
Are you paying attention yet folks? The US is playing both sides to their advantage, pretending to be the “saviour” so they can receive their accolades. The US desires now and has desired for generations to divide the land of Israel. This does not represent a nation that supports the chosen people of ALMIGHTY GOD. Anyone that believes in a “two-state solution” is an enemy of Israel, therefore an enemy of ALMIGHTY GOD. The LORD blessed the Jews with their land generations ago, as we read in the Old Testament. It may appear that Israel will be attacked and fall; however, in the end the Jews will be saved, and their land will be fully restored to them, according to the Holy Word of The LORD GOD. In reality, Israel has ALMIGHTY GOD on their side and certainly does not require the assistance of the US, or any other nation to help them. NO ONE CAN FIGHT AGAINST THE LORD GOD AND WIN!
When JESUS CHRIST returns and sets His feet upon the mount of Olives (Zechariah 14:4) the mountain will then resemble a plain (Zechariah 14:10). JESUS CHRIST will return to rule with a rod of iron to the heathen, completely different from when He was born into this world as a babe in a manger (fully GOD and fully man without sin) over 2000 years ago. During this time of the millennial reign of JESUS CHRIST on earth, Jerusalem shall be safely inhabited. Where will THAT get all of you enemies of the nation of Israel?
Zechariah 14:11 And men shall dwell in it, and there shall be no more utter destruction; but Jerusalem shall be safely inhabited.
Romans 11:26-27 And so all Israel shall be saved: as it is written, There shall come out of Sion the Deliverer, and shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob: For this is my covenant unto them, when I shall take away their sins.
ISRAEL INFORMS U.S. THAT JEWISH SETTLEMENTS IN JUDEA AND SAMARIA “SHOULD CONTINUE”
It appears that the United States is attempting to discourage Israel from progressing with Jewish settlements in Judea and Samaria. This is considered part of the land that ALMIGHTY GOD blessed the Jewish people with thousands of years ago. However, those that reject JESUS CHRIST and despise the Jews have taken it upon themselves to try and divide the land of Israel and rename Judea and Samaria the “west bank”. These are lies that are not according to scripture and is nothing but blatant anti-Semitism from the world system. On 01-11-2023 an introductory meeting was held between MK Yuli Edelstein and Tom Nides, the U.S. Ambassador to Israel. Nides, a puppet of the U.S. government, was sent to continue to push the idea of a “two-state” solution and express the opposition of the U.S. to Jewish settlement expansion. Edelstein, chair of the Knesset’s Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee, informed Nides that settlement expansion would continue, despite Washington frowning upon the idea. Edelstein stated, “I expressed to the ambassador my clear position regarding the need for construction in the areas of settlement in Judea and Samaria.” Edelstein continued, “The families there are developing and it’s impossible to put their lives on hold. Construction should continue.” In addition to these recent statements, Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu recently laid out the new government’s guiding principles, including a statement that the Jewish people have “an exclusive and inalienable right to all parts of the Land of Israel.” The coalition plans to expand Jewish settlements in Judea and Samaria, and to apply Israeli sovereignty over substantial portions of this territory. Nides also expressed his criticism of Ben-Gvir’s recent visit to the Temple Mount. Nides stated he had “been very clear in conversations with the Israeli government on the issue of preserving the status quo in Jerusalem’s holy sites” and that “actions that prevent [the preservation of the status quo] are unacceptable.” Ben-Gvir’s visit at the Temple Mount was within the bounds of the status quo, as he visited within the limited time allowed for Jews, quietly walked along an approved route and did not pray. Nevertheless, the “Biden” administration remained critical of the event. WHAT GIVES THE UNITED STATES OR ANYONE A RIGHT TO TELL THE JEWS WHAT TO DO IN THEIR OWN LAND? THE FINAL AUTHORITY IS ALMIGHTY GOD, AND HE HAS ALREADY PROCLAIMED HIS DESIRE IN HIS HOLY WORD. CASE CLOSED!
ZONING FOR NEW U.S. EMBASSY IN JERUSALEM IS MADE PUBLIC
The municipality of Jerusalem published the zoning description for a new US Embassy complex in Israel’s capital city. The embassy will be located on an area known by its British Mandate-era name, “Camp Allenby.” The complex will include an embassy, offices, residences, parking and security structures. The buildings can be no more than 10 stories high, and the wall surrounding the area will be 3.5 meters high. The former US Consulate in Arnona was expanded to include more offices and has a much larger “branch office” in the former site of the embassy in Tel Aviv. The US also sold the beachfront residence in Herzliya in which past ambassadors lived, reportedly to pro-Israel billionaire and Republican donor Sheldon Adelson. The embassy found a residence for Ambassador Thomas Nides on Jerusalem’s Emek Refaim Street. He previously lived in the Waldorf Astoria Hotel but was unable to host guests there.
I find it quite intriguing that a new US Embassy has to be constructed. Is not the current one good enough? There has to be more than meets the eye with this one, folks!
BIDEN ADMINISTRATION APPEARS MORE CONCERNED ABOUT PALESTINIANS THAN ISRAEL!
Trying to Usurp Authority Over Israeli Security Measures
There has been a recent increase of Palestinian violence against Israelis in Judea, Samaria, and Jerusalem. One of the most recent attacks happened when terrorists opened fire on a bus in the Jordan Valley, attempted to douse it with gasoline and ignite it. The terrorist attacks continued in Jaffa with an attempt to destroy the city’s iconic clock tower. Israel has responded by increasing raids and arrests within these “Palestinian” towns. The Biden administration, however, seems mostly worried about the Palestinians. Barbara Leaf, US Assistant Secretary of State for Middle Eastern Affairs, recently visited Israel and expressed concern about the Palestinian Authority’s instability. To rub more salt into the wound, Leaf pressured Israel to improve the situation.
As if this were not enough, the US is also applying pressure on Israel relating to the Palestinians, including in areas that are directly related to national security. For example, there is the matter of the Israeli Defense Forces rules of engagement. US State Department spokesperson Vedant Patel said the US is “going to continue to press our Israeli partners to closely review its policies and practices on rules of engagement and consider additional steps to mitigate the risk of civilian harm, protect journalists and prevent similar tragedies” to the death of Palestinian journalist Shireen Abu Akleh. Former Israeli PM Lapid stated, “No one will dictate our rules of engagement to us, when we are the ones fighting for our lives…. We are deeply committed to freedom of the press and to some of the most stringent rules of engagement in the world.” Defense Minister Benny Gantz said the IDF “chief of staff, and he alone, determines and will continue to determine the open-fire policies, in accordance with the operational need and the values of the IDF, including the purity of arms,” which refers to not discharging a firearm unless necessary.
The Biden Administration portrays itself as an enemy of Israel by attempting to dictate to Israel where to station their soldiers. US Embassy staff have been looking into the IDF’s mostly haredi Netzah Yehuda Battalion, which has been involved in countless encounters with Palestinians. They were also collecting reports by the media and NGOs as well as conducting interviews. A recommendation reportedly under consideration is to rotate Netzah Yehuda out of Judea and Samaria (West Bank) to other fronts for longer periods of time.
Other matters on which the US has been pressing Israel is the Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories’ rules on foreigners – including Americans – visiting Palestinians in Judea and Samaria. Israel revised its guidelines, not requiring visitors to report relationships with Palestinians, lifting academic quotas and extending the permissible length of a visit. Yet the reaction from Nides, US Ambassador to Israel, was that he still had “concerns,” lamenting that the IDF would want to have a role in deciding who can enter Judea and Samaria to lecture at Palestinian institutions. IS THIS INSANITY OR WHAT?
During a time of heightened security concerns, the US is asking Israel to loosen its security? There are other American requests to which Israel has agreed, which include opening the Allenby crossing 24/7 and allowing Palestinians to have 4G Internet that the Americans decided wasn’t happening fast enough. Nides is pressing Jerusalem on that front as well, US opposition to construction in the West Bank, which led Gantz to postpone a planned project between Jerusalem and Ma’aleh Adumim. For Israel, all of this adds up to considerable pressure. The bottom line is that the “Palestinians” are the enemies of Israel because they desire to obliterate the Jews and steal their GOD-GIVEN land. Therefore, anyone who takes their side is also considered an enemy of Israel!
ISRAELI GOVERNMENT AND POLICIES
JUDICIAL REFORM VOTE GIVEN APPROVAL
Despite the major controversy surrounding the Judicial Reform Bill, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu announced first reading for the law changes will go on as scheduled Monday (02-19-2023). Netanyahu stated, “So, today there will be votes, and tomorrow I hope the path will be opened to dialogue.” “One thing won’t change. The people made their electoral choices, and the representatives of the people will exercise their right to vote here in the Knesset. That’s called democracy.” Last week, President Isaac Herzog was calling for the legislative process to be paused. Former prime minister Yair Lapid also called for a 60-day halt to the voting process on the judicial changes so negotiations can take hold, but Netanyahu’s coalition refused. Netanyahu stated there was “more than enough time to talk and a genuine desire” to reach a compromise, adding that some members were willing to enter talks without conditions but were too “afraid of bullies in their camps” to do so. Netanyahu called the behavior of the protestors “thuggish,” and chastised them for preventing Likud Knesset member Tally Gotliv from leaving her house to vote and hindering her from taking her daughter to school, exclaiming the demonstrators had reached “a new low this morning.”
ISRAEL’S MINISTERS DEMAND RESPONSE TO INCREASED THREATS AGAINST GOVERNMENT
Mounting aggression toward the newly formed Israeli government led to several threatening phone calls over the weekend, targeting PM Benjamin Netanyahu. On Sunday, 02-05-2023, Netanyahu and his cabinet and coalition members demanded a response from law enforcement over these inciteful calls, focused on the government’s intention to reform Israel’s judicial system. During Sunday’s meeting, a discussion was held to determine “what constitutes a strengthening of democracy, and all sides agreed that political assassinations were not part of that”, stated Netanyahu. A specific example would be retired fighter pilot Ze’ev Raz’s call on Facebook to kill Netanyahu, along with his ministers and followers if they turn the country into a dictatorship, and Tel Aviv mayor Ron Huldai’s warning that a harsh reform would draw harsh reactions and that eventually “words will turn to deeds.” These aggressive comments were condemned by opposition leader MK Yair Lapid, former defense minister Moshe “Bogie” Ya’alon, former Aliyah and integration minister and current national Unity MK Pnina Tamano-Shata.
LAW TO STRIP TERRORISTS OF ISRAELI CITIZENSHIP ADVANCES IN KNESSET
As the “Palestinian” reign of terror increases toward Israelis, a law to punish these terrorists is advancing within the Knesset. A special joint Knesset committee has approved the preliminary reading of a law structured to severely punish terroristic acts. According to the bill’s provisions, a terrorist with Israeli citizenship who receives PA money as a reward will be stripped of Israeli citizenship. The legal process involves the minister of interior submitting a request to a court while the terrorist is in prison, and the court will approve or deny the request. Once the terrorist completes his prison term, he is released not back into Israel proper but to PA.-controlled territory. This legislation originated with a group called “Palestinian Media Watch”, under the direction of IDF Lt. Col (res.) Maurice Hirsch, director of legal strategies. “We came up with the idea and initiated it,” stated Hirsch. “The way that we explained the law throughout the [Knesset] hearings is that the Palestinian Authority sees all terrorists, including the Israeli Arab terrorists, as its soldiers. They say you can’t send a soldier to war without looking after his family. The terrorists see themselves as soldiers of the Palestinians, and when they request and receive payment from the PA as a reward for their acts of terror, they complete the cycle,” stated Hirsch, who reported the chances of the bill passing are excellent.
“One hundred and six Knesset members have already expressed their support for the law,” he said, noting that the Labor Party may also join in the effort. “Potentially it will pass with a majority of 110 votes to 10.” Hirsch expects the bill to become law within two to three weeks. It goes before the Knesset on Monday (02-06-2023) for the first of three additional required votes. There will be further committee discussions, but those should go quickly as debate on most major issues has already been held. Although there is a law on the books to revoke citizenship, Hirsch said it involves a “long and arduous process” and “there is no certainty at the end how the judge will decide.” The new bill would strip citizenship from a terrorist within six weeks, start to finish. Micah Lakin Avni, whose father was killed by terrorists on the No. 78 bus in Jerusalem in October 2015, stated, “This is a law that should pass as soon as possible with a 100% majority. There is no conscionable argument for opposing this law. Any Knesset member who opposes this law will essentially be saying, ‘I support rewarding acts of terror aimed at killing Jews and destroying the State of Israel.’
“My father, Richard Lakin, was brutally murdered by two terrorists who held Israeli national identity cards. One of the terrorists is serving a life sentence in Israeli prison for his crime. It is unconscionable that the terrorist, whose stated aim is to kill Jews and destroy the State of Israel, and who receives monthly payments from the Palestinian Authority as a reward for killing my father, be permitted to vote in Israeli elections. The terrorist’s stated goal is to kill Jews and destroy Israel. He is our enemy and must be treated as such.” Hirsch said the legislation is critical as Israeli Arabs make up a large proportion of terrorists. “There are 1,000 Israeli Arab terrorists in prison at the moment, which is one-fifth of the entire terrorist population. Of them, 300 are Israeli citizens, and 700 are [permanent] residents.” Hirsch, who also heads the Minister of Interior’s National Advisory Committee for the Cancellation of Citizenship, expects the law to act as a major deterrent for would-be terrorists. Although the terrorists carry out acts in the name of Palestinian nationhood, none of them appears to want to live under Palestinian rule. “I think there are many terrorists who will forgo the payments in fear of losing their citizenship. When someone who lives in Jerusalem and can wander around the country freely suddenly finds that he’s going to find himself not only in prison but also potentially expelled to Gaza, it’s quite a deterrent,” Hirsch said. “I think it’ll be a deterrent to carrying out terror at all. And those who have already carried out their acts of terror will suddenly have the fear of God put in them that they will be released not to Jerusalem, not back to their cushy life, but suddenly to Gaza.”
ISRAELI LAWMAKERS PREPARING BILL TO BAN “PRO-TERROR” COALITION MEMBERS
A new bill proposed by Israeli lawmakers will expand the evidence needed to ban Knesset members who have expressed support for terrorism. The new legislature is being advanced by Ofir Katz, coalition chairman (Likud), and would make it possible to exclude from the Israeli parliament anyone who praises attacks on Israelis, such as those who visit the families of terrorists. This bill would also prevent parties that reject Israel’s Jewish and democratic character from running for the Knesset even if they are part of a joint slate, which has previously prevented the exclusion of such parties. Under this proposed legislature, most of the currently serving Arab MKs would be disqualified from the Israeli parliament. The coalition will formally present the bill after its judicial reform package is passed, due to concern that the Supreme Court will strike down the legislation. The judicial reform package includes passing an “override clause,” which would give legislators the power to reverse, or “override,” the Supreme Court when it cancels laws. Hadash-Ta’al leader Ayman Odeh (Arab) criticized the judicial reform bill, stating that, “the struggle for democracy needs to be a struggle for democracy for all. We, the Arabs, cannot block the fascists by ourselves, but without us, the democratic Jews can’t [either].”
In July, Odeh refused to condemn Hezbollah as a terrorist group during an interview and shifted the focus to Israel’s “occupation” of Judea and Samaria. Responding to the question, “Is it possible to agree that Hezbollah is a terrorist organization?” Odeh characterized Israeli control over territories captured in the 1967 Six-Day War as the “primary terrorism.” Odeh was then asked, “More than [Hassan] Nasrallah?” which refers to the Hezbollah leader who the same week had threatened Israel’s offshore gas fields. Odeh replied that the Israeli “occupation” was “the most real, strategic and continuous terrorism since 1967 until now. We need to stop this, and strive for peace with all Arab countries, including Lebanon.” “The terrorist supporter is the one who supports the occupation of territories in the occupied territories of 1967,” Odeh answered. On April 10, he appealed to Israeli Arab members of Israel’s security forces to lay down their arms, drawing harsh criticism and accusations of incitement. Last year, the Israeli Central Elections Committee prohibited the “Palestinian” nationalist party Balad from participating in the country’s November election. That is because Balad challenges Israel’s status as a Jewish and democratic state. The ban was later overturned on appeal, although the party subsequently failed to pass the electoral threshold to enter the Knesset.
How can someone who supports terrorists and desire to divide the land of Israel be a part of their parliament? In the book of James 3:11 GOD’S WORD STATES: Doth a fountain send forth at the same place sweet water and bitter?
LEVIN REVEALS ISRAELI JUDICIAL REFORM BILL
Yariv Levin, Israeli Justice Minister, released a draft of his judicial reform bill on 01-11-2023 which is proposed as an amendment to Basic Law. This proposed reform bill includes an “override clause” that would enable the Knesset to reverse Supreme Court decisions to overturn legislation. In addition, this bill would also change the way judges are appointed, giving the majority on the selection committee to elected officials, and eliminate the legal justification of “lack of reasonableness,” which critics argue is legally vague and has been used by the court to mean whatever it likes. Israeli President Isaac Herzog met with Levin and requested that he soften his proposed reforms. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu defended the proposal and stated the judicial reform bill would be “strengthening all of our systems, democracy and the rule of law, that are dependent on the correct balance between institutions. This balance that we find in all countries across the world has been somewhat broken in Israel, and we have to return it in a responsible way and that’s what we will do.” Herzog addressed politicians and the general public who oppose this legislation and stated, “During recent days, I have held discussions with many parties, and I am doing everything in order to create a respectful atmosphere and dialogue, in the hopes of reaching a broad understanding. I appeal to you, elected officials and citizens of Israel from the entire public and political spectrum: Show restraint and responsibility. We must … lower the flames. We have no other country.” Otzma Yehudit lawmaker Zvika Fogel accused opposition leader and former PM Yair Lapid, National Unity Party Leader Benny Gantz, former Deputy Economy Minister Yair Golan, and former Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon of “treason” and described them as the “most dangerous” people in Israel. “These four are talking about war. If they were calling to protest, I’d give them every right to protest. But they’re talking in terms of me being an enemy. As far as I’m concerned, it’s treason against the state,” said Fogel. Yair Lapid recently called the proposed judicial reform an “extreme regime change” and vowed to continue fighting in streets across the country in “a war over our home.” Benny Gantz claimed solidarity with Lapid and stated, “If you [Netanyahu] continue the way you are going, the responsibility for the civil war that is brewing in Israeli society will be on you.” Netanyahu responded and accused his political opponents of “planting the seeds of disaster” by encouraging a rebellion against a democratically elected government.
HAREDI MINISTER CALLS FOR ISRAELI MAINTENANCE ON RAILWAY TO STOP FOR SHABBAT
On Sunday, 01-08-2023, Israel’s Economy Ministry declared they refused to stop routine maintenance work on the public intercity rail system for Shabbat, which is the LORD GOD’S true Sabbath (Saturday). MK Yitzhak Goldknopf, head of United Torah Judaism, sent a letter to the Economy Ministry, demanding that such operations be stopped during the weekly Jewish day of rest. In response, the ministry stated such works “have always been carried out within the framework of Israel Railways’ permit to carry out maintenance and safety work.” “There is no intention to cancel them,” it stressed. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has assured Haredi parties that non-essential work on Shabbat would end.
Transportation Minister Miri Regev held a meeting on Sunday evening to address the issue, where it was agreed that Israel Railways would present “solutions” for reducing work done on Shabbat by the end of the week. “The status quo regarding the railway work on Shabbat will be maintained as it was in the [previous] Netanyahu governments,” she said, alluding to work continuing as it has in years past. At this time, the disagreement between Regev and Netanyahu’s reported responses could not immediately be settled. According to ALMIGHTY GOD, the Sabbath (Shabbat) is a day of rest, because it was the day that He rested from all of His creation. Folks, this day of rest (Friday at sunset to Saturday at sunset) is not only intended for the Jews, but for all of us. The LORD GOD gave His ten commandments to His servant Moses for the Jews; however, now that JESUS CHRIST shed His blood, died on the cross, and arose from the dead the third day, the Old Testament has been fulfilled by JESUS CHRIST. Now everyone is free to come to JESUS CHRIST for salvation (Romans 10:9), repent, and commit our lives to serve JESUS CHRIST. There is no difference between Jew and Gentile in the eyes of ALMIGHTY GOD once we come to salvation. Also, JESUS CHRIST states in Matthew 5:18 For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled. This means we all are subject to obey the ten commandments, the moral law of ALMIGHTY GOD, until the end of time.
Genesis 2:1-3 THUS the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them. And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made. And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it, because that in it he had rested from all his work which God created and made.
Exodus 20:8 Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy.
PUTIN CONGRATULATES NETANYAHU
Russian President Vladimir Putin called to congratulate Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on 12-22-22 after hearing of the announcement he had formed a government. This is a follow-up to his original call back in November when Netanyahu won the majority 120-seat Israeli parliament. “There is mutual confidence that Russian-Israeli relations will continue to develop progressively, and contacts at various levels will continue,” said the Russian Foreign Ministry after the call. Putin has developed a close relationship with Netanyahu over the past decade. Earlier this month, an official delegation from the Moscow city government visited Israel, a visit unlikely to have occurred without a green light from Putin as Netanyahu prepared to officially take the reins in Israel.
Keep your eyes on the Word of ALMIGHTY GOD and realize that bible prophecy is continuing to unfold.
37TH ISRAELI GOVERNMENT IS OFFICIAL – 12-29-22
Benjamin Netanyahu, Israel’s longest serving Prime Minister. returns as the 37th government has been officially sworn in. Netanyahu, 73 years-old, has formed his sixth government which consists of a majority of far-right parties. Many people fear this newly formed government may cause dissention within the Israeli population as well as among the allies of Israel. The Israeli parliament has 120 members, and Netanyahu has the support of 64 of those members — all right-wing, including his Likud party supported by the ultra-orthodox Shas, United Torah Judaism, the far-right Otzma Yehudit, Religious Zionist Party, and Noam.
Netanyahu stated the three “national goals” of his government would be to prevent Iran from going nuclear, launch a bullet train that runs across the length of the country and bring more Arab countries into the Abraham accords fold. During his swearing in speech, Netanyahu encountered many hecklers who opposed his government, calling him “weak” and “racist”. The newly designated Prime Minister encouraged them to “respect the will of the voters,” and that “this is not the end of democracy or the end of the country.” “In a democracy, you don’t climb over the walls of the Capitol nor those of the Knesset,” he said. Several lawmakers were removed from the swearing in ceremony after hitting tables with their hands and repeatedly calling Netanyahu “weak.”
Outgoing Prime Minister Yair Lapid in his address to the Knesset listed the achievements of his short-lived government, including those of his coalition partner and previous PM Naftali Bennett. Lapid stated, “We are handing you a government in excellent condition … try not to destroy it, we will be back soon.” Lapid also posted on Face book, “Citizens of Israel, thanks for the last year and a half.” “This isn’t the end; this is the beginning of the struggle for our beloved country. We are fighting for the future of our kids, and we won’t stop until we topple the government of destruction, and return”.
Folks, make no mistake about it, this matter is certainly not over and is just the beginning of the turmoil that will ensue regarding the leadership over the nation of Israel. According to biblical prophecy, during the end-times, Israel will be without a king (leader) and will be deceived by her enemies. This is exactly what is taking place right now as Israel desires peace and is willing to compromise with her enemies. Even to the point of the false “peace” within the Abraham accords, which will divide the land of Israel. She is being led astray by the many wolves in sheep’s clothing; however, when everything is said and done, all Israel will be saved, their land will be restored to them, and ALMIGHTY GOD WILL be reunited with His chosen people.
Isaiah 60:18 Violence shall no more be heard in thy land, wasting nor destruction within thy borders; but thou shalt call thy walls Salvation, and thy gates Praise.
Hosea 3:4 For the children of Israel shall abide many days without a king, and without a prince, and without a sacrifice, and without an image, and without an ephod, and without teraphim: Afterward shall the children of Israel return, and seek the LORD their God, and David their king; and shall fear the LORD and his goodness in the latter days. This prophecy of Hosea was given after the reign of King David; therefore, we know “David their king” refers to the Jews finally believing on JESUS CHRIST (root of Jesse, the genealogy line of David, of the tribe of Judah) during the end-times and calling upon His Wonderful Name.
Romans 9:27-28 Esaias also crieth concerning Israel, Though the number of the children of Israel be as the sand of the sea, a remnant shall be saved: For he will finish the work, and cut it short in righteousness: because a short work will the Lord make upon the earth.
Romans 11:26-27 And so all Israel shall be saved: as it is written, There shall come out of Sion the Deliverer, and shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob: For this is my covenant unto them, when I shall take away their sins.
KNESSET EMERGENCY CONFERENCE REGARDING “LAW OF RETURN”
An emergency conference was held by Knesset members and ministers from the outgoing coalition on 12-13-22. They discussed the ongoing issues of immigration and Israeli influence on the world, as well as proposals to alter Israel’s Law of Return. The reason for the “emergency” meeting? The religious parties of the incoming government have demanded the cancellation of the so-called “grandchild clause” of the Law of Return. If the new government has their way, the “Law of Return” will guarantee citizenship to anyone with at least one Jewish grandparent so long as they do not practice another religion. This proposal has been strongly rejected by politicians from the outgoing coalition, as well as by top officials in international Jewish organizations. Those who denounce the new proposal warn that such a move could cause irreparable damage to Israel’s ties to communities in the Diaspora. The Diaspora is the dispersion of the Jewish people beyond the borders of Israel. The parties calling for the change, specifically the Religious Zionism party, consider the immigration of non-Jews to Israel to be a threat to the country’s demographics and to what they see as its Jewish identity. The message from the opposing speakers was that limiting the “Law of Return” would alienate World Jewry, sending a message to the children and grandchildren of Jews that they are unwanted and that any identification they may feel with Judaism is false. The current version of the Law of Return was passed in 1970 with the support of the religious Zionist party.
We know from studying the Old Testament that ALMIGHTY GOD permitted the Jews to be scattered when they turned their back on Him and followed the ways of the heathen. However, we also know there will come a day when all Jews return to their homeland, which is Israel. In the book of Isaiah 11:11-12 GOD’S WORD STATES: And it shall come to pass in that day, that the Lord shall set his hand again the second time to recover the remnant of his people, which shall be left, from Assyria, and from Egypt, and from Pathros, and from Cush, and from Elam, and from Shinar, and from Hamath, and from the islands of the sea. And he shall set up an ensign for the nations, and shall assemble the outcasts of Israel, and gather together the dispersed of Judah from the four corners of the earth. This would mean from the lands of Assyria (Iraq, NE Iran, SE Turkey, NE Syria), Egypt, Pathros (upper Egypt), Cush (Sudan), Elam (Iran), Shinar (Iraq), Hamath (Syria), including anywhere else the people were scattered.
LIKUD PARTY DESIRES TO PASS LAW BANNING THE FILMING OF IDF SOLDIERS
Likud Knesset members Miki Zohar and Eli Dallal proposed a law that would prohibit photographing IDF soldiers during operational activities. This proposal is the result of recent incidents in which anti-Israel activists filmed IDF soldiers and hindered their ability to carry out their duties. The proposal states that “whoever videos or photographs soldiers and members of the security forces while performing their duty, as an act of protest with the conscious intent to interfere with the performance of their mission or with the intent to undermine their spirit while performing their mission, shall be punished with imprisonment of up to five years; intent to harm in terms of state security, his punishment is punishable with imprisonment for up to ten years. “In addition, the proposal includes punishment for those who distribute the same content: “Whoever publicly distributes such photographic content, including through social networks and the established media with the intention of discrediting and/or undermining the morale of Israeli soldiers and the security forces, shall be punished by imprisonment of up to five years; intending to harm the security of the state, shall be punished with imprisonment of up to ten years. “Since 2005, the B’Tselem organization, which is funded by foreign countries, has been operating the “Armed with Cameras” project in which their activists document IDF soldiers in operational positions throughout Judea and Samaria. This proposed law is intended to deal with interference of IDF soldiers while performing their duties. MK Miki Zohar stated: “The immediate response to the anarchists’ war on IDF soldiers is to forbid them from taking pictures of them. In any reformed country, the camera would be confiscated, and the anarchist would be arrested. This is the way to back up our fighters.”
NEW ISRAELI TRANSPORTATION MINISTER TRYING TO DIVIDE ISRAEL’S LAND
Merav Michaeli, Israel’s Transporation Minister, said that the West Bank, known in Israel as Judea and Samaria, would ultimately not belong to the Jewish state. “It’s a shame to invest in a place that, at the end of the day, won’t be part of Israel,” said Michaeli recently during a television interview. Michaeli said that no existing transportation projects in Judea and Samaria had been cut; however, her ministry had not advanced any new ones. WHAT! Judea and Samaria (given the name west bank by the UN) is part of the land that ALMIGHTY GOD gave to the Jews generations ago. Folks, this is biblical prophecy being fulfilled, as The LORD warns us about evil leaders that will be present in Israel during the last days.
In the book of Isaiah 28:15 ALMIGHTY GOD STATES: Because ye have said, We have made a covenant with death, and with hell are we at agreement; when the overflowing scourge shall pass through, it shall not come unto us: for we have made lies our refuge, and under falsehood have we hid ourselves: VERSE 18: And your covenant with death shall be disannulled, and your agreement with hell shall not stand; when the overflowing scourge shall pass through, then ye shall be trodden down by it.
NEW ISRAELI COALTION GOVERNMENT
The Israeli government allows for a multi-party system with various political parties represented in the 120-seat Knesset. The Knesset כְּנֶסֶת הַגְּדוֹלָה or “great assembly” is considered the supreme body of legislature and has complete control over the Israeli government. The exception would be checks and balances from the courts and local governments. Responsibilities of the Knesset include passing all laws, electing the president and prime minister (ceremonially appointed by the president), elects the state comptroller, approves the cabinet, and supervises the work of the government. The Knesset also holds the authority to waive immunity of its members, remove the president and state comptroller from office, dissolve the government (no confidence vote), and dissolve itself and call for new elections.
The prime minister also holds the power to dissolve the Knesset; however, until an election is completed, the Knesset maintains authority. The Knesset has no formal constitution and no Basic Law, the Supreme Court of Israel asserts its authority to invalidate any Knesset laws it determines to be inconsistent with Basic law. The 120 members of the Knesset are elected from a single nationwide electoral district to concurrent four-year terms, subject to calls for early elections (which are quite common). All Israeli citizens 18 years or older may vote in legislative elections, which are conducted by secret ballot.
The first Knesset convened on February 14, 1949 in Tel Aviv and replaced the Provisional State Council, Israel’s previous legislature from its date of independence on May 14, 1948. This succeeded the Assembly of Representatives that operated during the British Mandate era.
WHAT ABOUT THE NEW COALITION GOVERNMENT? Israel’s parliament approved a new coalition government in 2021. Netanyahu has called the new coalition the “fraud of the century” and the political transition arrived at a time of heightened tensions between the Israeli military and the Palestinian group Hamas. This coalition is the first of its kind to include an Islamist party, eight female ministers as well as conservatives, leftists, and centrists. To many outsiders this may seem like a good solution. In reality, it is a further attempt within to “divide and conquer” by removing the Israeli government, meant for the nation of Israel since it was reborn in 1948.
ALMIGHTY GOD is always in control and will bring the victory to Israel, once they “look upon him whom they have pierced” and realize JESUS CHRIST is their Messiah. In Zechariah 12:10 ALMIGHTY GOD STATES: And I will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit of grace and of supplications: and they shall look upon me whom they have pierced, and they shall mourn for him, as one mourneth for his only son, and shall be in bitterness for him, as one that is in bitterness for his firstborn.
IDF BATTLES FORCES IN NABLUS
On Wednesday, 02-22-2023, the IDF came under fire during an arrest operation in the city of Nablus. The Israeli Defense Force surrounded a building in Samaria and were ambushed by the two terrorists they were intending to arrest. The “Palestinian” terrorists were identified as Hussam Isleem, who is linked to Lions’ Den terror group, and Muhammad al-Junaidi, the “Palestinian” Islamic Jihad’s military commander in Nablus, a city in Judea and Samaria. According to intelligence, Isleem and al-Junaidi were both part of the cell that murdered IDF Staff Sgt. Ido Baruch during a shooting attack in October. Earlier this month, the IDF arrested two “Palestinians”, identified as Obkamel Guri and Osama Tawil, in connection with Baruch’s murder.
IDF DEMOLISHES HOUSE OF “PALESTINIAN” TERRORIST
On Thursday, 02-16-2023, the Israeli Defense Forces demolished the house of a “Palestinian” terrorist who murdered Ronen Hanania and wounded three others near Kiryat Arba in October 2022. The demolition was carried out by IDF troops and Border Police officers after the Supreme Court rejected a petition to halt the move. The terrorist, Hamas member Muhammad al-Jabari, was shot dead by security forces during the attack in October 2022. Upon hearing the news, “Palestinians” celebrated the killings and handed out candy to the children.
ISRAEL RESPONDS TO MILITANT AIRSTRIKES
On Friday, 01-27-2023 Israel responded to terrorist rocket fire and launched air strikes on Gaza. Aggression continues to escalate following the Jenin raid, where nine “Palestinians” were killed after terrorists opened fire on IDF soldiers attempting to arrest them. Israel responded to numerous rockets launched toward southern Israel from Hamas Islamists with at least two rounds of strikes. There were no reported injuries on either side and most of the Gaza rockets were intercepted by Israel’s air defense system. No “Palestinian” group in Gaza has claimed responsibility for the rockets; however, both Hamas and Islamic Jihad had vowed to respond to Thursday’s Israeli raid in Jenin, which killed nine people. Israeli forces came under fire during a “counterterrorism operation to apprehend an Islamic Jihad terror squad” and shot several enemy combatants, according to the military.
We are in the beginning of sorrows folks, according to LORD JESUS CHRIST, and prophecy will continue to unfold. I pray for the Jews and the Arabs alike, who do not recognize JESUS CHRIST as their LORD and SAVIOUR. I pray that they come to know the truth before it is too late for them. We all have the same opportunity, and it comes down to our free will choice.
Matthew 24: 8 All these are the beginning of sorrows.
Matthew 24:42 Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come.
IDF PREPARES FOR POTENTIAL WAR – HOLDS DRILL AT JERUSALEM HOSPITAL
Hadassah Ein Kerem hospital in Jerusalem was ground zero for a large-scale military and medical drill on 12-15-2022. The IDF simulated a massive rocket attack on the capital, including one projectile slamming into the medical center amid a multi-front war. Officers from the Israel Defense Forces’ Home Front Command and hundreds of soldiers participated in the exercise, alongside hospital staff. The drill simulated a war between Israel and the Lebanese Hezbollah terror group, who launch thousands of rockets at Israel. In addition, terror groups in the Gaza Strip join in the fighting and begin to launch hundreds of rockets at Israel, including Jerusalem. Dr. Inon Buda, hospital manager, stated, ““Past experiences have taught us that if we once thought rockets wouldn’t hit Jerusalem, well, they hit Jerusalem.” Buda was speaking about the 11-day war between Israel and the Hamas terror group in the Gaza Strip in May 2021. Hamas launched a barrage of rockets at the capital, which did not cause any injuries as they were either intercepted or landed in open fields.
Colonel Shlomi Ben Yair, commander of the Home Front Command’s Jerusalem and Central District, stated that the military identified hospitals as the “most sensitive” civilian site to potentially be hit in war. There is no shortage of sites we fear may be hit, but the most complicated places that may be hit are hospitals,” stated Ben Yair. “We understand that within a day or two after a war breaks out, the hospitals will be full… and if a rocket strikes a hospital or a nearby building collapses from an attack, the hospital will need our assistance,” he said. Lt. Colonel Diana Herzog, a Home Front Command officer in charge of preparing hospitals for emergencies, reported that this war simulation drill began about six months ago. Herzog stated, “A war is a new scenario because in the past, Jerusalem was mostly free [of rockets]. It was very hard… unlike other hospitals that are well accustomed to war, we had to start from scratch here,” Herzog said. Her unit was collaborating with all hospitals throughout Israel to help them prepare for a potential war, “with the assumption that the third Lebanon war will be relevant for all hospitals.” The biggest threat on Israel’s borders? Iran-backed Hezbollah, with an estimated arsenal of nearly 150,000 rockets and missiles that can reach anywhere in the country.
KOHAVI STATES IDF AND US MILITARY ACTIVITY WILL BE EXPANDED
Israeli Lt. General Aviv Kohavi stated, “Joint activity with US Central Command will greatly expand’. Kohavi made this statement following his final visit to the US as IDF chief of staff. “To improve our capabilities toward the challenges in the region, joint activity with CENTCOM will be significantly expanded in the near future. At the same time, the IDF will continue to act at an accelerated rate against the entrenchment of the Iranian regime in the region,” he said. During his recent visit, Kohavi toured the US Navy Fleet Forces Command headquarters in Norfolk, Virginia, accompanied by the commander of the US Fleet Forces Command, Adm. Daryl Caudle. The IDF chief of staff also toured a nuclear submarine and an aircraft carrier to deepen his understanding of their operational capabilities. On Tuesday, he participated in a situational assessment at the CENTCOM Coalition in Tampa, Florida, and held work meetings with the CENTCOM Commander Gen. Michael “Erik” Kurilla. What is CENTCOM? the unified armed forces command organization that oversees US military operations in the Middle East. The IDF stated the joint operation held between the militaries were focused on Middle East challenges, Iran in particular. “During the assessment, a plan for the continuation of the joint activity and the establishment of dedicated teams to deal with the Iranian challenge was agreed upon,” the IDF said. The IDF and CENTCOM forces have held several joint drills and operational missions over the past year.
Make no mistake about this folks, the US is not the ally of Israel, despite the fact they are playing a convincing game. This is prophecy unfolding as the enemies of Israel continue to surround her with flattery, deceit, and false “peace”, entwining her just like the snakes that they are. ALMIGHTY GOD will deliver His people out of their hands, when the times of the Gentiles are fulfilled. We know the Jews have been scattered throughout the world, but now they are returning in great numbers back to Jerusalem, according to the plan of ALMIGHTY GOD.
Luke 21:24 And they shall fall by the edge of the sword, and shall be led away captive into all nations: and Jerusalem shall be trodden down of the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled.
IDF CHIEF OF STAFF WARNS U.S. ABOUT IRAN NUCLEAR PROGRAM ADVANCING
IDF Chief of Staff Maj.-Gen. Aviv Kohavi warned officials at the Pentagon and White House to accelerate operational plans against Iran, stating it has reached a “critical point”. Kohavi met with Israel’s Ambassador to the US Michael Herzog, then met with US chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Mark Milley. The Chief of Staff also met with National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan and discussed defense challenges in the Middle East and the Iranian threat. The national security adviser stressed that the US stands behind President Joe Biden’s commitment to prevent Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon. The two also discussed the security situation in Judea and Samaria and the desire to maintain stability and prevent an escalation.
Make no mistake about it folks, the U.S. does not have the best interests of Israel in mind. They desire to divide their land and support the enemies of Israel, who are considered the Palestinians, a people who never existed until the terrorist PLO came into existence, with Yassar Arafat. Those who reject JESUS CHRIST follow Satan, who desires to steal, kill, and destroy, all through flattery and deceit, which is the continuation of the false peace. I encourage you to continue to pray for the nation of Israel and the Jewish people.
IDF GROUND FORCES OPENS NEW ELITE PROGRAM
Israeli Defense Ground Forces is opening a new elite program for future officers. The program is named Erez after Brig.-Gen. Erez Gerstein, who commanded the Lebanon Liaison Unit and was killed in an explosion in southern Lebanon in March 1999. Over 2,000 invitations were sent out to cadets who demonstrate leadership abilities, a strong moral compass, high motivation for combat roles, strong and fast learning abilities and physiological capabilities needed for an elite combat role. Of those, only 80 will continue into the six-year, tailor-made program, which will recruit once a year and train the cadets to serve as commanders and not just soldiers. The Erez program hopes to increase the number of quality officers; therefore, ensuring command positions will be filled by the most talented and suitable soldiers. The military will handpick recruits for the program through detailed screening procedures, including the “Yom Hame’a,” which examines the recruit’s creativity, interpersonal abilities, data-processing skills, management skills, teamwork and more. IDF Chief of Staff Lt.-Gen. Aviv Kohavi said the motivation of cadets has risen significantly over the past two years, with more than 70% of all new recruits expressing interest in serving in combat roles.
ISRAELI MILITARY LARGEST DRILL EXERCISE – Chariots of Fire
Chariots of Fire has updated and prepared the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) to withstand the modern threats of war against their nation. The IDF’s largest drill exercise to date, Chariots of Fire involves the precise organization of military troops, aircraft and navy vessels. Because Israel has many enemies on all sides, the Israeli military will be trained together to war against their enemies, on all fronts.
Hezbollah boasts an arsenal of 130,000-150,000 missiles and rockets, while Hamas, Palestinian Islamic Jihad, and other terrorist groups in Gaza have an estimated 30,000 rockets, missiles and mortars. The constant targeting of Israel from its enemies presents the need for a mission such as Chariots of Fire. With such a heavy arsenal aimed at the Israeli home front and strategic infrastructure, the military has to increase its ability to strike targets deep inside enemy territory in order to bring an end to the fighting as quickly as possible and prevent mass casualties. The LORD will always equip His people when they turn to Him, and the only true protection comes from the sovereign hand of ALMIGHTY GOD.
QUATAR GIVEN APPROVAL BY ISRAEL TO DRILL IN GAS RESERVOIR
A Qatari company received authorization from Israel to be involved in drilling for natural gas in the Kana-Sidon Reservoir in the Mediterranean Sea. One provision of the recent maritime agreement signed by Israel and Lebanon was Israel was given veto power over any company’s involvement in extracting gas from the field that crosses into Israel’s economic zone. The Energy Ministry confirmed on Tuesday that “in the framework of the agreement…to ensure Israel’s rights in the Sidon Reservoir, an option was also authorized for the Qatari company Energy Consortium to join.” Energy Consortium is projected to be involved in up to 30% of Kana’s development. The Qatari company was interested in replacing a Russian company that was originally supposed to work with French TotalEnergies and Italian EN on developing the Kana field as the Israel-Lebanon deal came to a close. According to the maritime agreement, Israel will receive about 17% of the value of the field once the energy companies complete a thorough survey of how much gas is in the reservoir, which is expected to take over a year. If the energy companies find gas, it will build an economic plan for developing the reservoir, after which they will sign a more detailed agreement with Jerusalem.
ISRAEL AND LEBANON MARITIME AGREEMENT SIGNED
Israel and Lebanon signed the Maritime Border Agreement on 10-27-2022, a day after natural gas extraction began at Israel’s Karish field. Israeli and Lebanese negotiating teams signed the agreement at UN Interim Forces in Lebanon (UNIFIL) headquarters in Naquora, on the border between the two countries. Lebanon refused to recognize Israel in the framework of the deal and did not negotiate directly; therefore, each country’s delegation was in a different room. United States energy envoy Amos Hochstein visited Beirut to meet with Lebanese President Michel Aoun, Speaker of Parliament Nabih Berri, and Prime Minister Najib Mikati, before the ceremony. Hochstein also visited Jerusalem, to meet with then Prime Minister Yair Lapid, after the agreement was finalized. This entire process was mediated through the United States and will permit Lebanon to develop the Kana Reservoir. Lebanon will be extracting any natural gas that exists within the Kana field, located in the Mediterranean Sea. Israel was manipulated by the United States and Hezbollah to concede to their enemies. Israel will receive 17% of the total amount of extracted gas, according to the maritime agreement. The deal also gives a more official international standing to the “buoys line,” a physical boundary that the Israeli Navy set up in 2000, which extends approximately 3 miles into the sea from the Israel-Lebanon land border. Meanwhile, British company Energean began extracting natural gas from the Karish field. Hezbollah, the Iran-backed terrorist group that is a party in Lebanon’s government, threatened Israel over the Karish field in recent months, claimed it is in the dispute, and launched drones at it – which Israel shot down – though it is not in the area that was under negotiation with Israel. Lebanese Foreign Minister Abdallah Bou Habib stated that Lebanon has “no problem” with Israel beginning to extract gas since a deal has been reached, even though it hasn’t been signed yet.
ALMIGHTY GOD is certainly not pleased because Israel is giving away land that He provided them. There is no room for compromise, folks, and this is truly sad that Israel allowed Hezbollah and the United States to pressure them and manipulate them in this way. Despite this fact, ALMIGHTY GOD is always in charge folks, and we are reminded in His Word that the Jews who ultimately are saved and accept JESUS CHRIST as their Messiah will be reconciled with Him.
Something that is neglected throughout this entire matter is the fact that ALMIGHTY GOD blessed the nation of Israel with the country of Lebanon thousands of years ago. In the book of Deuteronomy 11:24 ALMIGHTY GOD STATES: Every place whereon the soles of your feet shall tread shall be yours: from the wilderness and Lebanon, from the river, the river Euphrates, even unto the uttermost sea shall your coast be.
In the book of Joshua 13:1 GOD’S WORD STATES: Now Joshua was old and stricken in years; and the LORD said unto him, Thou art old and stricken in years, and there remaineth yet very much land to be possessed. Verse 5: And the land of the Giblites, and all Lebanon, toward the sunrising, from Baalgad under mount Hermon unto the entering into Hamath.
WARS AND RUMOURS OF WARS
GERMANY SEEKING HELP FROM ISRAEL
As Russia continues drone warfare in Ukraine, Germany is now seeking assistance from Israel. Twelve German pilots have arrived in Israel to engage in a course to operate Berlin’s newest Heron TP unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV), developed by Israeli Aerospace Industries. The German pilots are training at Tel Nof Airbase in central Israel with the Israel Air Force’s Red Baron squadron, named after German World War I ace Manfred Albrecht Freiherr von Richthofen. The IAF squadron, opened in 2018, is the only Israeli squadron that permanently works with a non-Israeli one and will be training German pilots until 2027. The training of the German pilots in Israel marks the first time that Germany has had a constant deployment in Israel or any non-NATO state.
The course opened as German Member of Parliament Johannes Arlt from the Social Democratic Party (SPD) proposed to use the new UAVs to protect German critical infrastructure from any possible future Russian threat. Though the drones were initially purchased to be used abroad, “due to Russian threats we must quickly create the legal basis that will allow the use of these UAVs for national security purposes,” said Arlt. Germany currently does not permit UAVs to fly in its airspace; however, the Israeli-made drones will be deployed to Schleswig in northern Germany in the second half of 2023.
ISRAEL WILL NOT PROVIDE UKRAINE WEAPONS SYSTEMS SAYS GANTZ
Israel Defense Minister Benny Gantz announced, “Israel has offered to help Ukraine develop an early-warning system but will not provide weapons systems”. “Our policy vis-à-vis Ukraine will not change,” he said. “We will continue to support and stand with the West. We will not provide weapons systems. We have asked the Ukrainians to share information regarding their needs and have offered to assist in developing a lifesaving, early-warning system.” Gantz made these statements in a briefing to EU member state ambassadors in Israel. “Jerusalem has sent a request to Kyiv to share information about the country’s needs for air-defense alerts, he said, and “we will be able to assist in the development of a lifesaving, civilian early-warning system.” But due to “limitations” and “a variety of operational considerations,” Israel would not deliver any weapons systems to Ukraine, said Gantz.
Gantz voiced his concerns regarding the expanded alliance between Iran and Russia. He stated, “Iran and Russia are getting closer as a result of the war in Ukraine, and we are preparing for any scenario in this regard.” “We are continuing to monitor the effects of the war on our region, and we are conducting ourselves in a way that preserves our freedom of operation.” “When I see that Russia has to get weapons from Iran to strike Ukraine, I have to rub my eyes,” he added. “When you see the number of casualties Russia has suffered… in not a small way, Russia’s real strength has been exposed to the world.” “I want to make it clear that we are not selling weapons to Ukraine,” stated Gantz. “I am the defense minister, and I am responsible for the export of Israeli weapons.” Gantz confirmed that Jerusalem was following Iran’s involvement in the war in Ukraine, despite Tehran’s denial in providing Moscow with Shahed-131 and Shahed-136 drones. “The Iranians lie methodically about selling this equipment,” and “this same kind of involvement takes place across the Middle East.”
UNITED NATIONS TACTICS AGAINST ISRAEL
ISRAELI SECURITY CABINET RESPONDS TO U.N. RESOLUTION REGARDING ANNEXATION OF “PALESTINIANS”
On Wednesday, 02-08-2023, the International Court of Justice declared July 25th as the deadline for state bodies and organizations to submit documents pertaining to Israel’s presence in Judea and Samaria. Back in December, the U.N. General Assembly responded to the pressing of the “Palestinian Authority”, calling on the ICJ to “render urgently an advisory opinion” on what it called Israel’s “prolonged occupation, settlement and annexation of Palestinian territory.” The ICJ stated that it has set “July 25, 2023, as the time list within which written statements on the questions may be presented to the court and October 25, 2023, as the time limit within which states and organizations, having presented written statements, may submit written comments on the written statements made by either states or organizations.”
The Israeli Security Cabinet has clearly responded to the U.N. resolution by deciding to withhold taxes and tariffs collected on behalf of the P.A., in an amount equal to that which Ramallah paid to terrorists and their families in 2022 under its “pay-for-slay” policy. Since this decision was made, Finance Minister Bezalel Smotrich has signed an order that doubles that amount. Benjamin Netanyahu described the U.N. move as “disgraceful. ” Just like the hundreds of distorted U.N. General Assembly resolutions against Israel over the years, this disgraceful resolution will not obligate the government of Israel.”
To add salt to the wound, it has been reported that U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken requested that Netanyahu temporarily freeze construction in Judea and Samaria and halt demolition of illegal Arab structures in those territories as well as the eastern part of Jerusalem. This request was made under the guise to de-escalate escalating threats of terrorism.
ISRALI AMBASSADOR CALLS ON UN TO STOP IGNORING JEWISH NAKBA
THE ANTICHRIST UN GENERAL ASSEMBLY VOTED IN FAVOUR OF HOLDING A COMMEMORATIVE EVENT TO MARK WHAT THE ARABS (PALESTINIANS) CALL NAKBA DAY, REFERING TO THE GLORIOUS DAY THAT ISRAEL BECAME A STATE AS A “CATASTROPHE”! The Israeli Ambassador to the UN, Gilad Erdan, stated that “passing such an extreme and baseless resolution, the UN is only helping to perpetuate the conflict.”
Nakba Day is the Arab (Palestinian) name for the establishment of the state of Israel. The Arab name “nakba” translates to “catastrophe” and refers to the 750,000 Jews who were expelled from Arab and Muslim countries following the establishment of the state of Israel in 1948. Gilad Erdan, Israeli Ambassador to the UN, called the UN General Assembly to “stop ignoring the Jewish Nakba” and to vote in favour of holding a commemorative event in honour of the 75th “Nakba Day”. “What would you say if the international community celebrated the establishment of your country as a disaster? What a disgrace,” Erdan said. The ambassador described the history of that time period, when the UN voted on November 29, 1947, in favor of the British Mandate into Jewish and Arab states. The Jews were willing to agree to the mandate; however, the Arabs rejected it and declared war on the fledgling State of Israel the following year. The Jewish communities in the Middle East and North Africa “did not revolt against the international community’s decision,” Erdan said. “They did not try to annihilate another people. Their only crime was being Jewish. This is the true Nakba. This is the disaster carried out against the Jewish people and this is the disaster that this body has ignored for decades.”
Folks, could you just imagine what would happen if the tables were turned, and Israel spoke out against the Arabs in this manner? They would be persecuted to the highest degree possible from all of these antichrist representatives, which proves the ugliness of anti Semitism continues now just as in did in pagan Rome centuries ago. The UN and all enemies of Israel did not rejoice in the establishment of the state of Israel but instead focused on that day in 1948 as a cataclysmic event in history. If the Arabs would get down on their knees, believe on JESUS CHRIST and repent, ALMIGHTY GOD would accept them as He accepts everyone that commits their lives to serve JESUS CHRIST. Instead, these people chose to exist with their hearts of stone and continue to wage war against the chosen nation of ALMIGHTY GOD!
UNITED NATIONS ORDERS ISRAEL TO DISPOSE OF ALL NUCLEAR WEAPONS
The United Nations General Assembly’s First Committee has ordered Israel to dispose of all its nuclear weapons and place its nuclear sites under the International Atomic Energy Agency’s purview. UNGA made this statement in an initial 152-5 vote. The five nations that opposed this resolution on the “risk of nuclear proliferation in the Middle East” were: Canada, Israel, Micronesia, Palau and the United States. Another 24 countries abstained, including European Union (EU) members. The annual resolution submitted by Egypt to the UNGA in New York was sponsored by the Palestinian Authority (PA) and 19 countries including Bahrain, Jordan, Morocco and the United Arab Emirates (UAE). The UN is once again targeting the nation of Israel, believed to be one of only nine nations to possess nuclear weapons, although Israel has never admitted to having such weapons.
The resolution notes that Israel is the only country in the Middle East and one of the few among the UN’s 193 member states, which has not signed the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons Treaty (NPT). The UN also called on Israel “to accede to the Treaty without further delay, not to develop, produce, test or otherwise acquire nuclear weapons, to renounce possession of nuclear weapons and to place all its unsafe guarded nuclear facilities under the full scope of Agency safeguards as an important confidence-building measure among all States of the region and as a step toward enhancing peace and security.”
The First Committee also approved with 170 votes – including Iran – a call for a nuclear-free zone in the Middle East. Israel was the only country that opposed the text. Four countries abstained: the United States, Cameroon, Comoros and Tanzania. Earlier this month, an Israeli deputy ambassador to the UN Michal Maayan said the NPT is only as relevant as the level of compliance and is not a remedy for the “unique security challenges” of the Middle East. “Four of the five cases of serious violations of the NPT took place in the Middle East since its entry into force,” she explained. “For decades now, Iran has been rapidly advancing its illicit nuclear programs and currently possesses large quantities of highly enriched nuclear material,” Maayan charged. Maayan also explained it is impossible to speak of a regional security architecture around the nuclear issue because Middle East countries refuse to recognize Israel’s right to exist. Folks, it appears that the antichrist and anti-Semitic UN is attempting to further pressure and control Israel, under the guise of “peace and security“.
1Thessalonians 5:3 For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.
UNITED NATIONS ATTEMPTS TO DECLARE ISRAELI OCCUPATION ILLEGAL
The United Nations, the ultimate antichrist organization, and enemy of Israel, is trying to declare Israeli occupation illegal. They desire the International Court of Justice (ICJ) at The Hague (Netherlands) to issue an advisory opinion declaring that “Israeli occupation” of territory over the pre-1967 lines are illegal. A request for such an opinion has already been submitted to the UN’s Third Committee by the Commission of Inquiry on “the Occupied Palestinian Territory, including East Jerusalem, and in Israel,” headed by South African legal expert Navi Pillay, according to Chris Sidoti, COI Commissioner. The commission also called on the International Criminal Court to investigate whether it would accept war crimes suits against Israelis for their treatment of the Palestinians. WHAT! This is nothing short of outrageous folks because these wicked enemies of the Jews are trying to steal their land and eliminate the nation of Israel. However, there is one VERY IMPORTANT matter to consider: ALMIGHTY GOD GAVE THE JEWS THIS LAND THOUSANDS OF YEARS AGO AND HE IS THE ONLY ONE IN CHARGE!
UNGA UNANIMOUSLY VOTES AGAINST ISRAEL
The recent Third Committee of the UN General Assembly unanimously voted in favour of the Palestinian right to self-determination. The ultimate goal of the Palestinians is to “step up” their diplomatic campaign against the nation of Israel within the international arena. This latest slap in the face to the Israelis is presented just after the results of the recent Knesset elections. The right of “self-determination” to the Palestinians was approved by UNGA in a majority vote of 167 to five (Nauru, Marshall Islands, US, Israel, and Micronesia). The seven nations who abstained from the vote were Cameroon, Kiribati, Guatemala, Paula, Rwanda, Solomon Islands, and Togo. The latest resolution was submitted by Egypt, in coordination with the Palestinians, on behalf of the member states of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC). It is scheduled to be submitted for approval by the UN General Assembly in mid-December. How timely that the latest COP27 UN Climate Conference just ended in Egypt! The Israeli representative to the UN stated that Israel does not dispute the right of people to self-determination. However, she disputed the political motive behind the resolution, noting a pattern that begins with adoption of non-selective resolutions by consensus, then moves to Palestinians abusing these topics to push their agenda through political resolutions. Asking delegations to imagine what would happen if the UN gave all those seeking self-determination even a tenth of the attention it gives the Palestinians, the Israeli representative said the draft resolution represents “a relic of the past,” with Israel being isolated in the Middle East and the OIC being used to undermine its existence.
MAKE NO MISTAKE ABOUT IT FOLKS, THE UN DESIRES TO COMPLETELY OBLITERATE THE NATION OF ISRAEL AND STEAL HER LAND AWAY FROM HER. AS A REMINDER, THIS WILL NEVER TAKE PLACE BECAUSE ALMIGHTY GOD SAYS SO IN HIS HOLY WORD! There will come a time when great tumult takes place throughout Jerusalem, and it will appear that the Jews have been defeated. Then comes the final blow of ALMIGHTY GOD against ALL those who rise up against Israel!
FALSE PEACE and “TWO-STATE SOLUTION” LIE
SAUDI ARABIA REJECTS “NORMALIZATION” OF TIES WITH ISRAEL WITHOUT “TWO-STATE SOLUTION”
Saudi Arabia has once again rejected the idea of normalization with Israel as long as the “two-state solution with the Palestinians” is not achieved. On 01-20-2023, Saudi Arabian diplomat Prince Faisal bin Farhan Al Saud stated that “true normalization and stability will only come if Israel agrees to resolve the dispute with Palestine.” Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu recently met with Jake Sullivan, U.S. national security advisor on 01-19-2023 in Jerusalem. During that time, Netanyahu reported a breakthrough in relations with Saudi Arabia and confirmed that diplomatic relations with Riyadh were discussed. According to the Israeli PM, this process involves the unfolding of the Abraham Accords which continues the Trump-era “peace” treaty that established ties between Israel, the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain. Adrienne Watson, Sullivan’s spokesperson stated that U.S. president Biden has committed to working together with Jerusalem, Abu Dhabi, and Bahrain while “promoting a more integrated, prosperous, and secure Middle East region with benefits for all of its people”. This is just the beginning of the prophesied fourth earthly kingdom on this earth, which is the kingdom of the antichrist. In order for this wickedness to proceed, a false “peace” will be necessary and as we are witnessing right now, it appears to be unfolding.
PUTIN AND ABBAS “PUSH” ISRAELI-PALESTINIAN TALKS
Vladimir Putin met with his Palestinian Authority counterpart Mahmoud Abbas in Kazakhstan regarding the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. They intend to promote the need to resume peace talks which have been frozen for eight years. Putin and Abbas attended the sixth summit of the Conference on Interaction and Confidence Building Measures in Asia (CICA). It is the 30th anniversary of the group of 27 member states that includes Russia, Iran, China, Turkey, Pakistan and Israel, as well as the PA, which CICA recognizes as a state. Israel was represented at the CICA by the Foreign Ministry’s head of the Eurasian and West Balkans Division Simona Halperin. The increased high tension between Iran and Israel and increased tension between Moscow and Jerusalem over Israeli support for Ukraine is the motivation for this unusual gathering of these countries. Abbas has regularly sought Russian support for a two-state resolution to the conflict with Israel, based on the pre-1967 lines. Russia has sought to replace the United States as the prime broker of a peace process, with calls for a Moscow summit. Any talks of peace among the enemies of Israel means a false “peace” in an attempt to destroy the nation of Israel and steal their land.
ISRAEL CHASTISES BRAZIL FOR LETTING IRANIAN WARSHIPS DOCK
On Thursday, 03-02-2023, the Israeli Foreign Ministry chastised and condemned Brazil for permitting two Iranian warships to dock in Rio de Janeiro. The Israeli Foreign Ministry released a statement calling on Brasilia to not grant any “prizes” to Tehran. The statement continued, “Israel sees the docking of Iranian warships in Brazil a few days ago as a dangerous and regretful development.” “Those ships were specifically designated by the United States only a few weeks ago, and they are part of the Iranian Navy, which works closely and synchronizes its actions with the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, a designated terrorist entity.” In addition to these statements, the Israeli Foreign Ministry noted that the Islamic Republic is a hostile state “responsible for human rights violations against its own citizens, executing terror attacks all over the world and proliferating weaponry to terrorist organizations all over the Middle East. The ministry proceeded with a call for immediate action “This is the time to follow the steps taken by the E.U., U.S., Canada, Australia, Japan and many other countries, and single out the Iranian regime as what it really is: A terror entity. It is still not too late to order the ships to leave the port.”
PAPUA NEW GUINEA OPENS EMBASSY IN JERUSALEM
Announcement was made on Sunday, 02-26-2023 that Papua New Guinea will open its first embassy in Jerusalem this year. This island nation of 9 million people is geographically situated in the Southern and Eastern hemispheres of the Earth and located in the SW Pacific Ocean. It occupies the eastern half of New Guinea (the world’s 2nd largest island) and includes numerous offshore islands. A phone meeting between Eli Cohen, Israeli Foreign Minister and Justin Tkatchenko, his New Guinea counterpart resulted in this historic move. Cohen and Tkatchenko also discussed expanding bilateral economic relations, especially in the field of advanced agriculture. In respone, Tkatchenko promised that his government would continue its support for Israel in the international arena. “I would like to thank Papua New Guinea for the courageous ties, their overwhelming support in international institutions, and their decision to open an embassy in Jerusalem,” Cohen stated. “This is further evidence of the warm and important relationship between the countries.” He pledged to work to encourage other countries to open or relocate their embassies in Jerusalem as well. Currently, the U.S., Guatemala, Honduras and Kosovo maintain their Israel embassies in Jerusalem. This is the continuation of false peace between the nations as we see biblical prophecy unfolding right before our eyes. Jerusalem is considered the spiritual center of the world folks, and the Gentiles will continue to tread this city down, until ALMIGHTY GOD decides it is enough!
Luke 21:24 And they shall fall by the edge of the sword, and shall be led away captive into all nations: and Jerusalem shall be trodden down of the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled. WORDS OF JESUS CHRIST.
NETANYAHU MEETS WITH PRESIDENT OF CHAD BEFORE EMBASSY OPENING
Benjamin Netanyahu, Israeli Prime Minister, met with President of Chad, Mahamat Idriss Deby Itno, on 02-02-2023 in Jerusalem. The Chadian President is visiting Israel to dedicate the African country’s embassy. The country of Chad had severed ties with Israel back in 1972 because of pressure from Muammar Gaddafi, Libyan leader from 1969-2011. Gaddafi transformed Libya into a socialist (communist) regime, resulting in a hostile relationship with Israel, the US, and the UK. Diplomatic relations resumed in 2019 when Netanyahu and late Chadian President Idriss Deby agreed to reestablish ties during a ceremony in N’djamena. “Israel and Chad established relations between our two countries with your late father. It is in our view a tremendously important relationship with a major country in the heart of Africa,” stated Netanyahu. “It is something that we want to carry to new levels, new heights, and your visit here in Israel and the opening of the embassy is a reflection of that. “We believe that our cooperation can help not only advance our relations, but it is also part of Israel’s coming back to Africa and Africa coming back to Israel. We have common goals of security, prosperity and stability,” he added. The two leaders are expected to hold a private meeting and then an expanded one being attended by Israeli Strategic Affairs Minister Ron Dermer, Mossad Director David Barnea, National Security Council Director Tzachi Hanegbi, Chadian Foreign Minister Mahamat Saleh Annadif and Defense Minister Daoud Yaya Brahim, among others.
ISRAEL LAUNCHING “THERE IS NO OCCUPATION” CAMPAIGN
Israeli Public Diplomacy Minister, Galit Distal Atgaryan, announced on 01-16-2023 that Israel is launching a campaign directed to the global community that is entitled, “no occupation.” Atbaryan will campaign against the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement, acting in conjunction with the Foreign Ministry and that of the Diaspora Affairs Ministry. In 2015, Benjamin Netanyahu formed the Strategic Affairs and Public Diplomacy Ministry. This time around he has repurposed that office while giving it slightly different functions. Atbaryan stated she, “disagreed with past diplomatic Foreign Ministry initiatives to rebrand Israel as a country of innovation, agriculture technology, having a great music scene and being tolerant of gay rights, rather than one that is beset by conflict and war.” “The time has come to delve into the heart of the matter”, she said. “First, Israel has to create an infrastructure by which to explain that Jews had historical ties to the region of Judea and Samaria”, stated Atbaryan, referring to the land that ALMIGHTY GOD blessed the Jews with thousands of years ago. “People do not know about this,” she said, adding that, “the Bible is the deed of the Jews to the land”. “Once that is understood it would help to put events within perspective”, she said. “The question of a resolution to the issue of Judea and Samaria (West Bank) is separate from the question of occupation,” stated Atbaryan, who explained that a public relations campaign had to be opened in the Arab world. “The equation has to be changed. Netanyahu has explained that the attitude of the Arab world has to change so that “99[%] of the Arab world is with us” and then the conflict with the Palestinians can be resolved through dialogue with them and the Arab world”. Atbaryan continued, “I don’t believe that most of the Arab world hates Jews and Zionists. There are many people in the Arab [states] who have fallen away to mistaken information and incitement.” She explained that her office will also deal with public relations campaigns on normalizations with Saudi Arabia and Netanyahu’s push to stop Iran from becoming a nuclear state. The Public Diplomacy Ministry will also focus on educating other offices that deal with public diplomatic campaigns to form a common infrastructure, making it easier for everyone to advocate on behalf of Israel.
NO SUBSTITUTE FOR RELATIONSHIP WITH U.S. – STATES ISRAELI FOREIGN MINISTER
Eli Cohen, incoming Israeli Foreign Minister, proclaimed in his inaugural speech that maintaining a strong U.S.-Israel relationship remained the top priority. “As in the past, so it will be the same in the future. Our priority will be the strategic relations with our closest ally, the United States. There is no substitute for Israel-U.S. relations. It is a long-term strategic partnership based first and foremost on common values as well as on interests that we share,” Cohen said. Cohen said he was pleased to speak with U.S. Ambassador to Israel Thomas Nides on Sunday. Cohen is scheduled to speak with U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken on Monday afternoon. Of the Abraham Accords, signed by Israel, the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain in 2020, and later joined by Morocco and Sudan, Cohen said, “The expansion of the Abraham Accords is not a question of if, but when.” The Accords, he continued, had “dramatically changed the face of the Middle East.” In the past year alone, “trade volumes between Israel and the countries of the Abraham Accords crossed the threshold of 10 billion shekels,” and “beyond the economic contribution, there is a very significant security element for the countries involved as well as for the strengthening of regional stability,” he said.
Cohen elaborated as he stated, “a working meeting of the CEOs of the foreign ministries is planned in Abu Dhabi in preparation for another summit of the foreign ministers planned for Morocco this coming March.” Turning to the ongoing Russia-Ukraine war, said Cohen, “We will do one thing for sure—in public, we will talk less. We will prepare a detailed advisory from the Foreign Ministry to the Cabinet in order to formulate a responsible policy. In any case, the significant humanitarian aid to Ukraine will continue.” With regard to Iran, Cohen said there is now an international consensus that the nuclear agreement with Iran is “no longer relevant.” Cohen also stated, “Israel, in tandem with building up its own independent military capabilities to deal with any scenario, would also work to form an international front to prevent a nuclear Iran.”
Again folks, we are witnessing the groundwork being laid for the fourth earthly kingdom of the antichrist, beginning with this false “peace” of the Abraham Accords. Make no mistake about it and realize that anyone who desires to divide Israel’s land is an enemy of ALMIGHTY GOD.
NEW AMBASSADOR FROM TURKEY ARRIVES IN ISRAEL
Sakir Ozkan Torunlar, Turkey’s newest ambassador to Israel, recently submitted his credentials to the Foreign Ministry in Jerusalem. The ambassador presented a copy of his letter to Chief of Protocol Gil Haskel and will give the original to President Isaac Herzog. Once these formalities take place, Torunlar will officially be his country’s ambassador to Israel.
Former Israeli PM Yair Lapid and Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan decided on the move two months ago, which indicates normalization of relations between the two countries. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said he was, “pleased with the improved relations”. “Our relations have improved. [Erdogan] used to call me Hitler every six hours,” Netanyahu remarked. “We actually had a friendly conversation the other day, and I’m very happy with that, I think it’s important. Not because I necessarily approve of everything that Erdogan does; I don’t… that’s what foreign policy does. It’s a combination of interest and values, and you balance them.” Turkey previously expelled Israel’s ambassador and withdrew its own in 2018, after the US opened its embassy in Jerusalem. Do not allow this “peace” to fool you, folks. We know that this is bible prophecy unfolding right before our very eyes!
ISRAEL AND EU HOLD FIRST ASSOCIATION COUNCIL MEETING AFTER A DECADE
Israel and the European Union recently held an Association Council meeting after nearly a decade has passed. The ministerial-level dialogue is supposed to take place once a year. There was complaining from the European representatives prior to and during the meeting that former Israeli PM Yair Lapid participated by video link rather than show up in person. The 2013 meeting was canceled by then-prime minister (now current PM) Benjamin Netanyahu because of a proposed EU restatement that agreements with Israel only applied to the pre-1967 borders. The 2014 meeting was canceled by the Europeans, after being pressured from certain member states’ governments to take symbolic action against Israel following the 51-day conflict in Gaza that summer. Since that time, no concerted effort was made by either side to resume with the annual meetings. These two cancellations resulted in a mutual boycott, which neither side really wanted nor was able to justify. During 2021, Yair Lapid, then foreign minister, made it a personal goal to see the Association Council reconvene. Lapid was supported in this measure by a cross-party initiative in the European Parliament. When the first Cooperation Agreement was signed in 1975, Israel’s population was three million, making it smaller than all the European member states except for Luxembourg. It is estimated that during the next two years, the Israeli population will increase to 10 million people. Israel would then be considered significantly larger than Ireland, Denmark, Finland and Austria (among others), and roughly equal in population to Greece, Portugal and Sweden. This correlates with the fact that a record number of Jews have recently moved to Israel, which is a fulfillment of end-times biblical prophecy.
