"... in the last days perilous times will come: For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good...  lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God... And from such people turn away!" 2 Timothy 3:1-14

September 2013

Collapse reported on Temple Mount: "...a portion of the Temple Mount platform near the Al Aqsa Mosque has collapsed, creating a serious safety hazard and a possible threat to the stability of the Islamic structure. If the report is accurate, it would be the second serious collapse on the Temple Mount in the past five years.

     "Palestinian officials claim that the collapses are caused by deliberate Israeli action to bring down the Al Aqsa Mosque and the Dome of the Rock so that the Jewish Temple can be rebuilt. But archaeologists and engineers have been warning for years that the heavy construction projects being carried out by the Muslims atop the Temple Mount are destabilizing the huge number of ancient structures and water cisterns that riddle the sacred plateau."  See Critical Security Needs of Israel

Palestinians declare war over Temple Mount: "The armed wing of Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas' own Fatah faction has declared war on Israel over what it said are attempts to lay the groundwork for the rebuilding of the Jewish Temple in Jerusalem.

     "Fatah's Al Aqsa Martyrs' Brigade issued a statement on Tuesday decrying renewed visits by Jewish groups to the Temple Mount, calling such visits an ' settlers'....

     "...the group threatened to green light a new wave of terrorism against Israel if the Jewish visits to the Temple Mount did not cease by Friday." See Jerusalem

Threats Facing Israel: "Threats for the north, south, east, west, from nearby and from afar. That's the gist of an alarming map graphic that the Israeli Embassy in the U.S. posted this week." See Jerusalem

Egyptians Bewildered Over Support for Muslim Brotherhood: "Why is the U.S. administration siding with the forces of oppression in their country and assisting with its transformation into a failed state under the leadership of the Muslim Brotherhood? ... They simply do not understand the Obama Administration's efforts to bring the Muslim Brotherhood back to power.... Morsi worked systematically to dismantle the institutions of a 7,000 year-old country. ... Morsi also straightforwardly stated that he was recreating an Islamic 'Caliphate.'" See Muslim Brotherhood

Netanyahu bolsters Jewish settlements in 'West Bank': "The Cabinet of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Sunday approved a new list of municipal priorities that demonstrated it still very much backs the Jewish settlement of Judea and Samaria, despite renewed US-driven negotiations with the Palestinians. Those cities and towns on the list will receive special grants for development."

Israeli, Jewish targets worldwide on terror alert: "Israel's government this week issued a severe warning to Israeli and Jewish targets around the world of imminent terrorist threats. The Counter-Terrorism Bureau issued a statement saying that it had 'concrete' evidence of planned attacks against Israeli and Jewish targets in dozens of countries." See Jerusalem

United Nations admits bias against Israel: "United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon on Friday finally admitted what most people already knew, that the world body operates with an unfair bias against Israel. ...The UN chief tried to clarify that as a full-fledged member of the world body, Israel would always be treated equally along with the other 192 member states. But the grossly disproportionate number of resolutions passed against tiny Israel provided evidence to the contrary." See Western Europe will soon be 'Judenrein' - Norway now is!  [See the last item below]

 Palestinian lecturer denies Temple ever existed: " 2000, Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat famously denied that a Jewish Temple in Jerusalem ever existed.... Temple Denial has since metastasized in Palestinian popular belief. Under Arafat’s leadership, Palestinian historians were forbidden to refer to a historical Jewish Temple.

Destruction of Israel guaranteed, ayatollah says: "The ayatollah promises a restructuring of the Middle East: 'Palestine will be free, have no doubt in this. … Palestinians will return there and there will be a Palestinian government … and that is based on the truth revealed by God. A new Middle East will be… an Islamic Middle East. ... There is no doubt that vwaits the Palestinian people in the future, and the myth of Zionist power over this region will h willing.'” See Jerusalem

Message decoded: 3,000-year-old text sheds light on Biblical history

IDF faces oncoming Al Qaeda tide on three Israeli borders: Golan, Lebanon, Sinai: "Kochavi warned that the thousands of al Qaeda pouring into Syria from around the world are fighting to create an Islamic state there, just as they are in Afghanistan, Pakistan and Yemen. This peril, he said, is closing in on Israel, Lebanon, Jordan and Egypt’s Sinai Peninsula." See Critical Security Needs of Israel

Talks Begin on Mideast, to Doubts on All Sides: "In making the revival of the Middle East talks his top priority, Mr. Kerry is not only challenging the status quo in the region but also taking on the conventional wisdom in much of the American foreign policy establishment.... With the Palestinians poised to take their claim for statehood to the International Criminal Court and United Nations bodies, American officials say the two sides were facing a downward spiral in which the Israelis would respond by cutting off financing to the Palestinian territories."

Syria turning into ‘center of global jihad’ – IDF Intel Chief: "Israeli Military Intelligence chief said that Syria is becoming a ‘center of global jihad’ right on Israel’s border, with extremists trying not only to topple President Bashar Assad, but also to create a state governed by the Islamic religious law." See The Muslim Brotherhood


Secret Obama plan' forfeits Temple Mount to Palestinians: "The Obama administration has quietly presented a plan in which the Palestinian Authority and Jordan will receive sovereignty over the Temple Mount while Israel will retain the land below the Western Wall, according to a senior PA negotiator speaking to WND. The Temple Mount is the holiest site in Judaism." See Jerusalem

EU turns its back on Israel; Implications dire: "The European Union last week announced its new official policy of boycotting Jews and Israelis in areas of Israel liberated in the 1967 Six Day War, including Judea, Samaria and most of Jerusalem.  "Given the current state of affairs in the Middle East, this controversial move by the EU is poised to have devastating effects. Starting in 2014, contracts and agreements between EU businesses, institutions and individuals from those newly outlawed areas will no longer be legally recognized by EU courts." See Critical Security Needs of Israel

June 2013

Kerry demands “peace agreement” that cripples Israel: “Israel is not interested in becoming a 'bi-national country,' but must ensure that it can defend itself by itself against any threat, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu said on Thursday, hours before US Secretary of State John Kerry arrived for talks. ...

     " Netanyahu... said before Kerry arrived that Israel wanted peace 'because we want to live in peace.' But, he said, no one should 'delude themselves into thinking that if we reach an agreement with the Palestinians it would erase the wild slander against the Jewish state.'

     "Netanyahu said that regardless of what Israel does, its name will still be blackened around the world and it will continue to be depicted as 'rejecters of peace, as warmongers, as a dark country that aspires to conquer.' He reiterated a theme he has repeated a number of times over the past few months: that anti-Semitism, the historic hatred of the Jews, has now been transferred into a hatred of the Jewish state." See Critical Security Needs of Israel


Obama Inc. Leaks Details of Israeli Secret Base: " was unthinkable for the U.S. Defense Department to publicize more than 1,000 pages of the most minute details of a system whose success rests, among other things, on being totally hidden from enemy eyes. This is a huge blow to Israeli defense, because the Arrow 3 is designed to seek and destroy Iranian Shihab 3 missiles and other long-range projectiles. It does this after being launched into space, where its interceptor breaks away and becomes a vehicle for targeting and crashing into oncoming missiles.....Hagel has long-standing ties with the pro-Tehran lobby in the United States. Since 2002, he has appeared as a keynote speaker at fund-raisers and conferences for the American-Iranian Council."

Obama quotes Alinsky in speech to young Israelis: "...citing the radical community organizer’s defining mantra, [Obama] urged young Israelis to 'create change' to nudge their leadership to act. ...In his defining work, 'Rules for Radicals,' which he dedicated to 'the first rebel, Lucifer, Alinsky used those words to lay out his main agenda. He asserted radical change must be brought about by working within a system instead of attacking it from the outside. ...He further suggested Israelis do an end-run around the country’s leadership and 'create the change that you want to see.' ...Alinsky’s ideology is not foreign to Obama. The politician started his career as an Alinsky-style community organizer in Chicago and taught the radical’s tactics at the University of Chicago." See Alinsky's Rules for Radicals

Israel's Critical Security Needs for a Viable Peace:  Remember, Israel is surrounded by hostile Islamic lands. Only 44 miles separates the Mediterranean sea from the Jordan valley on its eastern border. How can it protect itself?  If the White House map becomes reality, it seems almost impossible. But our God reigns in the midst of the dire threats!  His will, not man's, will ultimate rule!  See Jerusalem

Previewing the President's trip to Israel, The West Bank and Jordan: "Notice the White House logo in the upper right corner, then see the diminished size of Israel on the White House map. How will Israel be able to defend itself when those who hate her are all within short incredible short distance. Then watch the sobering video below:

Obama to Demand Israel Withdrawal from Judea & Samaria?  "Will Obama offer his own plan on reinforcing the faltering security apparatus of the Palestinian Authority during the period of resumed negotiations...?

    "Obama has a blueprint to turn to if he is so inclined, co-authored by his new Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel. This 2009 report recommended the two state solution boundaries embraced by Obama, enforced by a 'U.S.-led multinational force' which would be 'under a UN mandate' and 'feature American leadership of a NATO force supplemented by Jordanians, Egyptians and Israelis.' Jerusalem would have 'a special security and administrative regime of its own.'"

 Europe's "Decoy Jews": "'Decoy Jew' is a new phrase in the Netherlands. Jews are no longer safe in major Dutch cities such as Amsterdam. ...Being insulted, spat at or attacked are some of the risks associated with being recognizable as a Jew.... Last week, a television broadcast showed how three Jews with skullcaps, two adolescents and an adult, were harassed within thirty minutes of being out in the streets of Amsterdam. Young Muslims spat at them, mocked them, shouted insults and made Nazi salutes. 'Dirty Jew, go back to your own country,' a group of Moroccan youths shouted at a young indigenous Dutch Jew.
     "'It is rather ironic,' the young man commented, adding that if one goes out in a burka one encounters less hostility than if one wears a skullcap."

"Killing Jews is worship that draws us close to Allah": During the eight-day military conflict between Hamas and Israel, Hamas broadcast various ideological messages on its official Al-Aqsa TV station. One recurring message called for the killing of Jews, which Hamas defined as a religious Islamic act in worship of Allah. During one music video, these words were shown on the screen: 'Killing Jews is worship that draws us close to Allah.'"

"Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; Who put darkness for light, and light for darkness..." Isaiah 5:20-21

Tunisia: Muslim cleric calls for "sterilizing the wombs of Jewish women": "During a Friday sermon broadcast live on November 30 on Hannibal TV, Sheikh Ahmad Al-Suhayli of Rades, a suburb of Tunis, told his followers at the Khatib mosque that 'God... is for sterilizing the wombs of Jewish women.'"

December 2012

Congressman blasts Obama's decision to 'arm' extremists: " is irresponsible for Barack Obama to be 'arming' a country that may be aiming for the destruction of Israel with a shipment of 20 F-16 fighter jets. 'It is reckless and unwise for the U.S. to give F-16s to Egypt and its new president/dictator, controlled by the Muslim Brotherhood.... This extremist group is notoriously anti-American and anti-Israel....

      [Yet] "Obama is proceeding with his plan to gift Egypt with 20 brand new F-16 fighter jets as part of a $450 million aid package promised to Egypt in 2010.... The new President Mohammed Morsi, head of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, recently joined in a public prayer to the effect of  'Oh Allah, destroy the Jews and their supporters....'Oh Allah, disperse them, rend them asunder.'... Mahmoud Ahmadinejad... has said he wants to 'wipe Israel off the face of the map' and that 'We don’t shy away from declaring that Islam is ready to rule the world.'” 

Syrian Rebels: 'When We Finish With Assad, We Will Fight the U.S.': "...the militants now on the front lines of the rebel uprising in Syriasupported by the Obama administration and other western powers – are Al-Qaeda terrorists who killed U.S. troops in Iraq and openly espouse their desire to 'fight the U.S.' after they topple Bashar Al-Assad. ...

     "Jabhat al Nusra has claimed responsibility for numerous suicide bombings and other attacks that have killed hundreds of innocent people. Last weekend, disturbing footage emerged of one of their members slaughtering prisoners in cold blood. Extremist militants have also ransacked Christian churches and carried out sectarian beheadings. ...Syrian rebels were shown on camera proudly burning U.S. flags on two separate occasions recently. ...Syrian rebel fighters are routinely photographed wearing the Al-Qaeda motif." See A Taste of Blood: Human nature without a moral conscience!

Iran aims biological warheads at Israel :"...the Islamic regime has 170 missiles targeted at Tel Aviv from underground silos, some of which are armed with biological warheads. The Islamic regime ruling Iran has prepared for the total destruction of Israel as well as a capability to target European capitals, he said....

     "The CIA has long warned about Iran’s growing missile threat, and in 2010, Defense Secretary Robert Gates warned Congress of Iran’s capability of launching a salvo of missiles, even at European capitals....

     "A senior Iranian cleric, Ayatollah Ahmad Khatami, warned then that Tel Aviv 'will burn to ashes,' and the regime’s supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, promised 'the superfluous and fake Zionist regime will disappear from the landscape of geography.'”

      But God has sent us a different message:

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

November 2012

Hamas leaves Israel no choice: "Hamas’s charter includes the aspiration that 'The Day of Judgment will not come about until Muslims fight the Jews (killing the Jews).' While many concentrate on its... bloodthirsty killing of adversaries, or its contempt for women, Christians and homosexuals, it is this aspiration for genocide that is at the root of Hamas activities. This is the primary reason why Hamas, the governing regime in Gaza, will never recognize or accept a peace accord with Israel in any form....

     "Every rocket from Gaza is a double war crime. First, the rockets are aimed at civilians; second, they are fired from built-up civilian areas, often close to schools, mosques and hospitals. And about 10% of Hamas rockets fired from Gaza don’t reach Israel, exploding in Gaza."

ISRAEL Announces Ceasefire, Hamas Keeps Firing: "Obama spoke to Israeli PM Netanyahu Wednesday evening and asked him to agree to abide by a ceasefire with Hamas. Netanyahu gave his consent. Netanyahu, Defense Minister Ehud Barak and ...Lieberman held a joint news conference Wednesday evening announcing the ceasefire. However, Hamas kept on firing rockets.... Egyptian FM Mohammed Kamel Amr, speaking at a joint news conference in Cairo with US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, said the cessation of hostilities would begin at 9 pm.... PM Netanyahu's office confirmed the news earlier Wednesday evening, but its statement leaves room for the use of greater force if Hamas fails to abide by the terms of the ceasefire."

     But Hamas did fail to abide by those terms. See the next link:


Terror Attack Near Israel's Defense Center Makes Ground War More Likely: "Today’s bus bombing in central Tel Aviv--the first in more than six years--injured twenty-three people and will likely rule out any cease fire in the Gaza conflict in the coming days. ... The attack was also timed to coincide with Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s visit to Israel, and sends a message of contempt to the U.S.... Hamas claimed credit for the attack, and Gaza residents reportedly celebrated."


Video: 15 seconds for Sderot: "Sderot [in Israel] has only 15 seconds to take cover from when the missiles are launched from Gaza until they land. Now, even other cities have to worry."

Emergency insight for intercessors: "PM Netanyahu addressed the nation tonight saying: 'Hamas and the other terror organizations chose to escalate its attacks in recent days. Israel has sent Hamas a clear message that it is prepared to defend its citizens. Hamas is purposely shooting at civilians, and hides behind its own civilians. We avoid striking civilians.... Blessedly, this man of God, who is leading the nation, is saying that we refuse to go the way of perpetual restraint and victimhood that the nations have required of us. We will not go where our enemies are demanding that we go, which is to death and destruction. We will take hold of our destiny and fight to retain it with the help of God.

          "Please act as a Watchman on the wall, intercede and PRAY: 'Pray against all kidnapping of Israeli soldiers and citizens.
Pray that Hizbullah in the north (Lebanon) will not enter into this fight (unless it is YHVH, who brings that nation in). For the past 30 days, chemical weapons that have been stored in Syria have been moving west into the hands of Hizbullah....Pray that Egypt doesn’t get into this war (unless it is YHVH, who is drawing Egypt in to fulfill Isaiah 19)..."


Iran admits pulling strings on Gaza crisis: "As the conflict between Israel and the Palestinian Hamas faction is escalating and rockets are hitting Tel Aviv and Jerusalem, Iran announced Friday that its missiles were being used against the Jewish state.... Iran has large stockpiles of chemical and microbial weapons and it has armed the Lebanese terrorist group Hezbollah with them."

Christian pastor: The Church is hopelessly anti-Semitic: "At an interfaith conference bringing together Jewish leaders and Protestant Christian pastors outside Jerusalem this week, several of the Christian representatives painted a very worrying picture about the future of relations between Israel and the mainstream Church. ...many of the mainline Protestant churches have been actively boycotting Israel....

      "The Goliath we face is the Goliath of replacement theology, the Goliath of Christian Palestinianism that taunts Israel.....' Replacement theology... is the belief that Christendom has taken the Jewish people’s place as the recipients of promises God made in the Old Testament." See Jerusalem  (Please read these Scriptures and remember the promises God made to Israel concerning its future.)

U.S. to Help Create an Elite Libyan Force to Combat Islamic Extremists: "The Pentagon and State Department are speeding up efforts to help the Libyan government create a commando force to combat Islamic extremists like the ones who killed the American ambassador in Libya last month.... The Obama administration quietly won Congress’s approval last month to shift about $8 million from Pentagon operations and counterterrorism aid budgeted for Pakistan to begin building an elite Libyan force over the next year that could ultimately number about 500 troops. American Special Operations forces could conduct much of the training."

     Why? The Obama administration refused to answer Ambassador Stevens' desperate call for American help -- yet is willing to spend millions to strengthen Libyan power. Why? Who are we really helping? The Muslim Brotherhood

Benghazi: Marines 'supported' by jihadists: "Video and documentary evidence shows that a Libyan-government-sponsored militia that reportedly provided support to American Marines on the night of the Sept. 11 Benghazi attacks is a radical Islamic militia that, like the presumed assailants, flies the black flag of jihad." See next link:

This is what Benghazi 'consulate' really was: [by Aaron Klein] "The U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi, Libya, actually served as a meeting place to coordinate aid for the rebel-led insurgencies in the Middle East, according to Middle Eastern security officials. Among the tasks performed inside the building was collaborating with Arab countries on the recruitment of fighters – including jihadiststo target Bashar al-Assad’s regime in Syria. The distinction may help explain why there was no major public security presence at what has been described as a 'consulate.' Such a presence would draw attention to the shabby, nondescript building that was allegedly used for such sensitive purposes." See The Nazi/Arab plots to exterminate Jews

Is This the Real Reason We Sent U.S. Troops To Jordan? "The reasons offered by Sec. Panetta were tied to the latest escalation of the violence between the rebels and the Assad regime in Syria.... Panetta also said something that sparked a question about the possibility of other reasons behind the need to have American troops in Jordan: ...The phrase that caught our ear was — 'to insure that we make the relationship between the United States and Jordan a strong one.'...

      "The map shows that Jordan’s borders touch Egypt, Israel, Syria, Iraq, and Saudi Arabia. The location of Jordan could be viewed as strategically important... especially if someone had an interest in surrounding Israel.... Jordan has been averaging $450 million a year in US aid for quite some time."  Remember this Scripture:

Israel will deal with Iranian threat, with or without help: "A member of Israel's Knesset says his country is in a life or death struggle as Iran continues to accelerate its development of nuclear bombs. The Iranians are threatening to drag the United States into any confrontation with the Jewish state.... Danon says if President Obama does not want to help, there is no other alternative -- but that Israel will do what it must do to survive. ....Danon is the author of Israel: The Will to Prevail, which is extremely critical of President Obama." See Jerusalem

War against Israel: "He said he is seeing with his own eyes military movements the likes of which he has never seen in his 20+ years in Israel. ...a massive redeployment and protective tactics of forces is underway. Over the last two days he has seen anti-aircraft missile deployments throughout the Jerusalem area....

     "...he has seen very large Israeli armored columns moving fast toward the Sinai where Egypt has now moved in Armor. ...pray for Israel and its people....

    "It is the belief in Israel that Obama does not stand with Israel but with the Arab countries. ... He was at the Wailing Wall two days ago and there were hundreds of IDF soldiers there. As he was leaving he passed at least 20 military buses full of soldiers in route to the wall."


"On that day,  when all the nations of the earth are gathered against her,

I will make Jerusalem an immovable rock for all the nations.

Recruiting HAMAS at St. Louis University this month: "...a new national organizers conference by the International Solidarity Movement (ISM) is scheduled to be held at St. Louis University from September 21-23, 2012. St. Louis University is a Jesuit college, yet is playing host to what amounts to an anti-Jewish, anti-Israel, pro-Palestinian festival.... The keynote speaker... an Israeli radical who boasts she has cost the Israeli economy 1.5 billion dollars thus far in promoting the worldwide boycott of Israel.....One session will also teach anti-Israel activists how to tie their Palestinian revolution to other social causes such as the environment in order to make Palestine’s final destruction of Israel everyone’s goal."

Affirming the Jewish State’s Territorial Rights: "The report’s conclusions.... First, Israel is not an occupier in the West Bank; second, what the 1949 Geneva Convention said about population transfers—in response to Nazi occupations in World War II—does not apply to Israel’s circumstances in the West Bank; and third, 'according to international law, Israelis have the legal right to settle in Judea and Samaria and the establishment of settlements cannot, in and of itself, be considered illegal.'...

    "In the Palestine Mandate of 1922, the League of Nations granted Jews the right to 'close settlement' of the land between the Jordan and the Mediterranean—including, of course, the West Bank. While, according to the terms of the 1947 UN Partition Resolution, the Jewish leadership was willing to forgo its right to parts of the land where a Palestinian state was to be established, including the West Bank, the Palestinian and Arab side emphatically rejected the partition plan and instead launched a war....

     "In the 1967 Six-Day War—in which Egypt, Syria, and Jordan again tried to wipe out the Jewish state—Israel instead conquered the West Bank back from Jordan. In 1988 Jordan formally renounced all claim to the territory. Simple logic, then, dictates that since 1967 the West Bank has belonged to Israel—unless it should voluntarily choose, similar to the Jewish leadership in 1947, to forgo part of its right to it."

"On that day, when all the nations of the earth are gathered against her, I will make Jerusalem an immovable rock for all the nations." (Zechariah 12:3)

AJC, Mormons Hold Historic Dialogue: "An AJC [American Jewish Committee] delegation met this week with senior leadership of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS) at the church’s world headquarters in Salt Lake City.

Jerusalem to become Egypt’s capital under Mursi’s rule, says Muslim cleric: "If Muslim Brotherhood candidate Mohammed Mursi became president, Egypt’s new capital will no more be Cairo, but the new capital will be Jerusalem, a prominent Egyptian cleric said...'Our chants shall be: ‘millions of martyrs will march towards Jerusalem,' prominent cleric Safwat Hagazy said.... 'The United States of the Arabs will be restored on the hands of that man [Mursi] and his supporters. The capital of the [Muslim] Caliphate will be Jerusalem with God’s will,' Hegazy said, as the crowds cheered..." See The Muslim Brotherhood and its plots to kill Jews & Christians

New Threats to Israel: "By permitting the Brotherhood to participate in the elections for parliament and the presidency, the military signed the death warrant of its regime. The Brotherhood will rule Egypt. ... The inevitability of the Islamic takeover of Egypt means that the peace between Israel and Egypt is meaningless.... The only questions that remain are how long it will take and what form it will come in....

     "With the Brotherhood ascending to power, the security cooperation Israel has received from the Egyptian security forces in Sinai is over... With the US siding with the Brotherhood against the military, maintaining the peace treaty has ceased to be important for the generals....This dismal situation requires Israel’s leaders to take several steps immediately."

What to do about Syria: "While Syria is an anti-Semitic and anti-Israel police state, what will inevitably follow the fall of Assad will make the current regime look like a benevolent picture of stability by comparison. Syria is the home of one of the largest Christian populations in the Middle East. That is largely due to the Christian refugee crisis that was brought about largely due to the turmoil in Iraq since the U.S. intervention there. While Assad is a bad actor, he has been tolerant of religious minorities, including Christians. In fact, Assad, an Alawite, is part of a religious minority himself. But if the Assad regime falls, it will mean genocide for the Christian community. In fact, the escalating rebellion is already taking its toll on Syrian Christians." See Deceptive alliances

More war preparations for Israel: "Those preparations include arming and fueling Israel’s nuclear-capable Jericho II missiles and the deployment of covert intelligence ships near Iran for intelligence-gathering and surveillance. In addition, Israel is preparing its own German-supplied electric submarines which are capable of firing a nuclear-tipped cruise missile. Israel has three such submarines and hopes to receive a fourth almost any time."

The Last Days of Jews in the Islamicized Europe: "The March attack at a Jewish school in Toulouse... triggered 'an explosion' of anti-Semitic attacks across France. ...more than 90 anti-Semitic incidents took place in France only in the 10 days that followed the shooting.... In total, 148 anti-Semitic incidents were recorded in March and April. It’s an anti-Semithic pandemonium totally silenced by the European media. ....

      "During the Holocaust, Europe dispatched its Jews to the gas chambers. ....A few days ago, Jews were nearly lynched in Lyon by an Arab mob armed with hammers and yelling 'dirty Jews.' That’s why in the past few years, the number of French Jews immigrating to Israel has doubled. Hundreds of French Jews have bought apartments in Israel."

Iran boasts U.S. has abandoned Israel: "Iranian outlets have been claiming recently the United States has been forced to bow before Iran on its nuclear program, demonstrating the West’s abandonment of Israel and paving the way for the Islamic regime to annihilate the Jewish state. ...Ayatollah Mesbah Yazdi, one of the most influential clerics in the Islamic regime...has stated that it is the duty of Muslims to destroy the 'Zionist regime and its arrogant supporters.'

     "Yazdi had decreed in 2006 that in case of war between Muslims and 'infidels,' Muslims can take the 'infidels' as slaves until they become Muslims and then send them back to their countries. ...'When protecting Islam and the Muslim (community), martyrdom operation not only is allowed, but it even is an obligation.'" See Jerusalem

HISTORY of Israel & "Palestine": "Take a close look at this PRESENT DAY MAP of the Middle East in which you can see that 22 Arab and/or Muslim [Iran is not considered Arab] nations completely engulf Israel. If someone can explain to me how "expansionist Israel" has "taken over" the Middle East, please email me! The Arab countries occupy 640 times the land mass as does Israel and outnumber the Jews of Israel by nearly fifty to one."

Where’s the Coverage? Egyptian Presidential Campaign Rally Vows to March on Jerusalem: "At a rally to kick off the presidential campaign of Muslim Brotherhood candidate Muhammad Mursi in Egypt, the cleric introducing the candidate declared the aim of forming a Muslim caliphate, 'The United States of the Arabs,' the capital of which will be Jerusalem....Our capital shall not be Cairo, Mecca, or Medina. It shall be Jerusalem, Allah willing. Our cry shall be: 'Millions of martyrs march toward Jerusalem.'"

Libels Against Israel Defenders Rampant at UC San Diego: "Students for Justice in Palestine at Univ. of California San Diego launch false accusations against pro-Israel students."

Israel, against all odds: "The First World War pitted Germany, the Ottoman Empire and others against Britain, France and Russia. Although the great mass of Jews lived in the Pale of Settlement which was situated in eastern Poland, Ukraine, and western Russia, there was an established Jewish presence in Western Europe and in the United States. The Jews were divided into ideological camps, namely, the assimilationists, the Communists, the socialists, the orthodox and the Zionists. For the most part they were loyal to the country where they lived."

The Radical Left Unites With Iran in March on Jerusalem: "In the wake of the innocuous-sounding 'Arab Spring' that has brought openly Jew-hating Islamists to power in the Middle East, Israel’s enemies everywhere smell blood. ...And now on March 30, an Iranian-backed protest march will attempt to storm Israel’s borders again in an effort to take Jerusalem – or at the very least to draw fire, enabling the marchers and the complicit media to denounce Israel’s 'brutality' against 'peaceful' protesters.

      "The Global March to Jerusalem (GMJ) is a well-organized, well-funded movement consisting of Israel-hating activists from around the world seeking to deny Jewish historical connections to Jerusalem and to claim the city for the Palestinians instead.

     "In a clear case of psychological projection, the organizers’ strategy begins with falsely accusing Israel of racism and war crimes: 'The march will confirm that the policies and practices of the racist Zionist state of Israel against Jerusalem and its people are a crime not only against Palestinians but against all humanity.'

      "...the marchers plan to launch their offensive from the Arab countries surrounding Israel and to infiltrate its borders, forcing the Israelis to respond with (justifiable) force – their ultimate goal being to overwhelm the Jewish state and Jerusalem itself by sheer numbers... The protest has also been endorsed, unsurprisingly, by prominent radical leftists in the West." See Jerusalem

Harvard's Latest Assault on Israel: "...campus incitement against Israel has been growing....A conference at Harvard next week called 'Israel/Palestine and the One-State Solution' is but the latest aggression in an escalating campaign against the Jewish state. ... The sequence is by now familiar: Arab student groups and self-styled progressives organize a conference...targeting Israel as the main problem of the Middle East. ...since the roster of speakers and subjects makes their hostile agenda indisputable, university spokespersons scramble to dissociate their institutions from the events they are sponsoring....A featured speaker at Harvard's conference is Ali Abunimah...who opposes the existence of a 'Jewish State' as racist by virtue of being Jewish.... The avowed mission of the Harvard Kennedy School of Government, host of the upcoming conference, 'is to strengthen democratic governance around the world.... How farcical that instead of seeking to strengthen democratic governance, its students hijack its forum for 'studying' how to destroy the hardiest democracy in the Middle East."

So Jesus lived in occupied territory? "The premise of the event is that the Palestinians live under brutal Israeli 'occupation.' ...Some 30 Christian leaders will be gathering at the Bethlehem Bible College to raise the banner of 'Palestinian Liberation Theology'....[the anti-Israel] struggle for 'freedom' from their 'occupied land.' ...reality shows that Israel has worked them into their society, given them seats in the Israeli parliament, and given them a decent standard of living. Israel gave the Palestinians so much freedom that they let them elect the terror group Hamas to govern them. As a thank you, Hamas shells Israeli towns and settlements regularly. ...Many of the participants are part of the 'religious Left'....It seems [Stephen Sizer] cannot -- or perhaps chooses not -- to see the brutality of Israel's enemies."

Netanyahu: Crime is terrorizing nation’s Arabs: "The level of crime in the Arab sector has created an intolerable reality for these Israeli citizens...Siham Agbariya from Umm el-Fahm broke into tears describing the heartbreak and terror she feels following the murder of her husband and two of her children four months ago."

Ayatollah: Kill all Jews, annihilate Israel: "The Iranian government, through a website proxy, has laid out the legal and religious justification for the destruction of Israel and the slaughter of its people. Calling Israel a danger to Islam... opportunity must not be lost to remove 'this corrupting material. It is a ‘jurisprudential justification” to kill all the Jews and annihilate Israel, and in that, the Islamic government of Iran must take the helm.”

Palestinians throw shoes, sticks at UN Secretary General: "On his visit to the Middle East last week, UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon attempted to get Israel and the Palestinians to restart the peace talks. Since the Palestinians don’t want peace and the Israelis aren’t willing to give in to all the Palestinian demands before the talks even start, he didn’t get very far.... While Secretary Ban was in Gaza, his armored convoy (...he needs armed protection to visit the Palestinians...) was attacked by dozens of Palestinians. They threw sticks and their shoes—a sign of great disrespect.... The real danger is posed by Iran....'”

Obama and Occupy Wall Street – Re-elect him and you get them: "Howard Gutman, Obama’s creepy ambassador to Belgium, explained to a conference that the Jews had no one but themselves to blame for the violence directed at them in Europe, because of 'tensions between Israel and the Palestinian territories.' This sounded eerily like Nazi apologists blaming Kristallnacht on the Jews’ 'disproportionate influence' on German society."

UN Textbooks for Palestinian Children ‘Explosively Anti-Semitic, Anti-American and Anti-Israeli': "The textbooks used to educate Palestinian children who live in refugee camps came under fire at a briefing on Wednesday on Capitol Hill where experts said lessons of intolerance and hatred toward Jews and Israel fill the books’ pages. Rep. Chris Smith (R-N.J.), chairman of the House subcommittee on Human Rights... [said] that U.S. donations to the United Nations Refugee and Works Agency (UNRWA) make the federal government [as "the largest contributor] accountable for what is in the books....

     "In the same [textbook] (p.16), a map is entitled 'Arab and Muslim Nations' [but] 'Israel does not exist' 'on the map....In the textbook National Education, Grade 7 (2011), pp. 20-21, it says, 'The Zionist colonialist greedy ambitions in Palestine started in 1882. ...The coming of the Jewish throngs to Palestine continued until 1948 and their goal was taking over the Palestinian lands and then taking the original inhabitants' place after their expulsion and extermination. ...

     "In the book Readings and Texts, Grade 8... it says, 'Your enemies killed your children, split open your women's bellies, took your revered elderly people by the beard and led them to the death pits...." In Reading and Texts, Grade 8... it states: 'O brother, the oppressors have exceeded all bounds and Jihad and sacrifice [fida] are imperative..." See The Nazi/Arab plots to exterminate Jews

Christian Palestinianism. A very interesting video!

January 2012

Holocaust Memorial Day and the Auschwitz Album. January 27 is the International Holocaust Memorial Day.

Sweden a center of anti-Semitism: "' was 'unthinkable that in the 21st century Jews need to move from the city of Malmo to Stockholm and elsewhere.'...Kantor said he had repeatedly contacted the office of Swedish Prime Minister Fredik Reinfeldt, but has received no reply."

World has remained indifferent to genocide: "The world has not learned the lesson of the Holocaust and is allowing genocide to take place in Syria, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu said in the Knesset on Tuesday. honor of International Holocaust Memorial Day, Netanyahu said one of the reasons the UN was founded was to prevent genocide, but that goal was not reached. 'Just ask the Cambodians, Rwandans or Sudanese,' he pointed out. 'When the world intervened, it was always too late, and when too many lost their lives. Look at Syria.'....'There is a tradition of hate,' the prime minister said, mentioning that the grand mufti of Jerusalem from 1921-1948, Haj Amin al-Husseini, was one of the 'architects' of the Final Solution.” See The Nazi/Arab plots to exterminate Jews

The Islamist Plan for Victory: “Gradualism” : "The Islamists, especially the Muslim Brotherhood, have always worked in stages. In December, the Brotherhood’s Supreme Guide, Mohamed Badi, outlined six phases: Sharia over the individual; Sharia over the family; Sharia over the society; Sharia over the government; the resurrection of the Caliphate and finally, 'mastership of the world.' The Muslim Brotherhood is in the process of completing the fourth phase in Egypt....Sheikh Qaradawi explains, 'What I am for is a genuine type of democracy, for a society driven by the laws of Sharia that is compatible with the values of freedom, human rights, justice and equity.' [That's means redefining freedom and justice.]

      Qaradawi admits that 'our democracy is different.'....The document says to exercise 'flexibility at the local level' .... It calls for 'controlling the local centers of power through institutional action' and to build alliances with other Islamic groups..... It supports 'temporary cooperation' with non-Muslim groups that are anti-Israel.... In December, the leader of Hamas stated that it was working towards the 'interim objective of liberation of Gaza, the West Bank, or Jerusalem.' The destruction of Israel, or in the Islamists’ words, the 'liberation of all Palestine,' follows....

     "In 2004, the FBI found seized another Brotherhood strategy document that describes its 'work in America as a kind of grand jihad in eliminating and destroying Western civilization within.' It describes 5 phases:

1. "The 'secret establishment of leadership' ...This phase calls for 'infiltrating various sectors of government,' 'gaining religious institutions,' 'gaining public support and sympathy,' and 'establishing a shadow government.'

2. '"Escalation phase.' This focuses on 'utilizing mass media'...

3. “'Open confrontation with the government through…political pressure.'

4. "It also calls for 'training on the use of weapons domestically' and says that there are 'noticeable activities in this regard.' Could this have something to do with the Jamaat ul-Fuqra training camps on American soil? [video]

5."The final phase: 'Seizing power to establish their Islamic Nation..."'

EU report calls for action against Israeli settlements: "The European Commission is being urged to consider drafting legislation to ensure financial transactions by EU member states do not support Jewish settlements in East Jerusalem....The Palestinians want East Jerusalem to be the capital of a future state, but Israel is determined that Jerusalem be its undivided capital."

The land-for-peace hoax: "...[this treaty] is based on the false proposition that the peace process is a two-way street. Israel gives land, the Arabs give peace. But the inevitable death of the Egyptian-Israeli peace accord under an Egyptian jihadist regime makes clear that the land-for-peace formula is a one-way street. Israeli land giveaways are permanent. Arab commitments to peace can be revoked at any time....All the American and European promises to Israel... will be exposed as worthless lies. ...No one will insist that the Egyptians honor their bargain....

     "Qaradawi, an Egyptian who ...was forced to flee Egypt due to his jihadist politics, made a triumphant return to his native land last February following the overthrow of president Hosni Mubarak. Speaking to a crowd of an estimated two million people in Cairo's Tahrir Square, Qaradawi led them in a chant calling for them to invade Jerusalem.... In 2009, he called for the Muslim world to complete Hitler's goal of eradicating the Jewish people." See The Nazi/Arab plots to exterminate Jews

US commander visits Israel to finalize missile drill: "Israel is moving forward with plans to hold the largest-ever missile defense exercise in its history this spring amid Iranian efforts to obtain nuclear weapons. Last week, Lt.-Gen. Frank Gorenc, commander of the US’s Third Air Force based in Germany, visited Israel to finalize plans for the upcoming drill, expected to see the deployment of several thousand American soldiers in Israel."
      [Since Obama has demonstrated his support for the Muslim Brotherhood with billions of taxpayers' dollars and high positions in his administration, I need to ask this question: Is this an attempt to save Israel, or to control Israel, or to block war in the Middle East, to gain election points, or all the above?] See next link:

Repeated: Egypt's Embattled Christians Seek Room in America: "The pivotal Middle East ally [Egypt] receives $1.3 billion annually in military aid....The U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom, a federal advisory agency, asked the State Department to place Egypt on its list of 'countries of particular concern'—egregious violators of religious freedoms. The department declined.... Throughout the Middle East, 'Democratization has resulted in ethnic cleansing."
