JERUSALEM A CUP OF TREMBLING
‘Jihad in Jerusalem’
January 15, 2014 — Israel National News reports: “Palestinian Authority (PA) Minister of Religious Affairs Mahmoud Al-Habash claimed Monday that Jihad fighters should not flock to Syria, but to Jerusalem – and PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas applauded, according to Palestinian Media Watch (PMW).
‘Whoever wants resistance, whoever wants Jihad, the direction for Jihad is well-known and clear,’ Al-Habash claimed to a crowd at a PA-sponsored event. ‘Those who send young people to Syria or elsewhere to die for a misdirected cause must stop and understand that Jerusalem is still waiting. Jerusalem is the direction, Jerusalem is the address.’
‘There is a message we must convey to those who kidnapped the Yarmouk [Palestinian] refugee camp [in Syria] with baseless false slogans, pretexts, and excuses,’ he continued. ‘We say to them: ‘The [place for] resistance and Jihad is not the Yarmouk refugee camp. Whoever wants resistance, whoever wants Jihad, the direction for Jihad is well-known and clear. Everyone knows it. I don’t think that there is anyone who doesn’t know where Jihad is supposed to take place.’
‘I don’t think that there is anyone who doesn’t know to where we should direct efforts or where to concentrate the masses. I don’t think there is anyone who doesn’t know this. Those who send young people to Syria or elsewhere to die for a misdirected cause must stop and understand that Jerusalem is still waiting. Jerusalem is the direction, Jerusalem is the address.’…” (This utterance against Jerusalem is the prophecy that leads the world into the greatest war ever, Armageddon – Revelation 16:16. Jerusalem becomes a cup of trembling and a burdensome stone globally – Zechariah 12:2, 3. This troublesome Jewish capital witnesses all nations coming against the Holy City- Zechariah 14:2. At this point, verse 4 Christ returns, puts down the world’s enemies – Zechariah 14:4-9 and then rules the world from Jerusalem as He sits on David’s [Israel’s] throne forever.)
Hamas: ‘Israel Has Eight Years Left’
January 13, 2014 — Israel National News reports: “Israel will be gone in eight years, according to one Hamas official.
Fathi Hamad, Hamas’s Interior Minister, claimed in a speech honoring the anniversary of Operation Cast Lead that ‘Palestine’ would replace the Jewish State by 2022.
Hamad noted in his speech that the Palestinian Arabs, according to Islamic prophecies, will enter the Al Aqsa Mosque ‘in jubilation and victory like they entered it the first time’. He said that Israel has failed in previous wars waged against the Palestinians, while the Palestinians are progressing nationally towards the stage where they are capable of conquering Jerusalem.
After the ‘liberation’ of Al-Aqsa Mosque, said Hamad, the ‘Hittin’ system will prevail. That statement refers to the means by which Saladin conquered the Land of Israel against the Crusaders, in particular during the Battle of Hittin/Hattin; namely, by slaughtering or enslaving the non-Muslim forces arrayed against him.
‘We’ll destroy the enemy,’ Hamad assured his audience, noting that achieving that goal would take ‘eight years.’ Hamad also claimed that the Palestinians are at the stage of readiness for ‘jihad and martyrdom in the way of Allah’…” (This report is nonsense according to God’s Holy Word. Isaiah 56:5 states: “I will give them [Israel] an everlasting name…” Also, Christ returns, sits upon David’s Throne in Jerusalem and reigns over the world from Israel – Luke 1:32, 33. It’s Hamas who won’t be around as Christ rules the world as the “King of kings, and Lord of lords” – Revelation 19:16. See the next two reports.)
Hamas Minister: First Israel, then the World
December 25, 2013 – Israel National News reports: “The ultimate goal of the Hamas movement is to establish Islam worldwide, Hamas minister Fathi Hammad declared during a recent public address in Gaza.
‘We shall liberate our land, Allah willing. We shall liberate our Al-Aqsa Mosque, and our cities and villages, as a prelude to the establishment of the future Islamic Caliphate. Therefore, brothers and sisters, we are at the threshold of a global Islamic civilization era,’ Hammad proclaimed.
‘The fuel and spearhead of this era will be Gaza, and its mujahideen and leaders will be from Gaza, Allah willing,’ he added.
Hammad’s speech was translated by the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI).
He then appealed to Fatah, which heads the Palestinian Authority in Judea and Samaria, to stop negotiating with Israel.
‘We just sit and talk to the Jews. Enough with that! Come join us, the legions of the believers, which have translated the Koran into victory, the law of the Prophet’s ancestors into glory, and Jihad into liberation,’ he urged.
‘We shall be coming with a third Intifada, an armed revolution, a Jihadi revolution, Allah willing,’ Hammad continued, adding that ‘Gaza and the West Bank will fuse together, along with our brothers within the 1948 borders, in a second Battle of Hattin, in order to uproot the Jews,’ referencing the defeat of Christian Crusader forces by Saladin’s Muslim army in 1187…”
‘Hezbollah commander says none of Israel’s borders are safe’
January 2, 2014 – The Jerusalem Post reports: ““While Hezbollah remains entangled in the Syrian conflict, one of its top field commanders is warning in an interview with the British newspaper Guardian on Thursday that it would behoove Israel to remain on alert.
‘None of their borders are safe now and this is not a good thing for them,’ the commander said. ‘They cannot be happy with the momentum anywhere in the region, especially Syria. Egypt is perhaps the only border that gives them comfort. The rest are outside of their control.’
In the interview with The Guardian, the Hezbollah commander vowed that its allies would emerge victorious and that Bashar Assad’s government, which has received support from the Lebanon-based Shi’ite militia and their main patron, Iran, would remain in control in Damascus.
‘This is a war not just against us, but against humanity,’ he said. ‘And it is one that we will win.’…”
Iranian MP: We need nuclear bomb ‘to put Israel in its place’
January 8, 2014 — The Jerusalem Post reports: “Iranian parliament representative Muhammad Nabavian said that Iran needs a nuclear bomb because of Israel.
‘We don’t aspire to obtain a nuclear bomb, but it is necessary so we can put Israel in its place,’ Nabavian said in a speech given on Friday and quoted by MEMRI (the Middle East Media Research Institute).
The Iranian Tasnim News Agency website, which first quoted Nabavian, later removed the comment about Iran needing a nuclear bomb, according to the MEMRI report…” (Iran has met with the 6 nations to pledge they will only use their nuclear power for peaceful purposes. It’s a pledge until June 2014. This report proves their honesty and trustworthiness is unreliable. God bless Israel and America. If they create the bomb, all hell will break loose – Ezekiel 38:1-5. Persia changed its name to Iran in 1935.)
Netanyahu Opposes Framework Dividing Jerusalem
January 10, 2014 — Israel National News reports: “Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu announced to senior officials in his government that he won’t agree to any division of Jerusalem in framework agreements. Sources previously revealed that US Secretary of State John Kerry’s proposals would divide the capital under international management.
Netanyahu has claimed he won’t sign any document which in any way allows the establishment of a Palestinian Authority (PA) capital in Jerusalem, no matter the price to peace talks, according to Haaretz reports Friday morning.
On Thursday, sources in Jewish Home reported that Chairman Naftali Bennett was ready to quit the coalition if a framework of Israeli withdrawals was adopted.
Kerry’s interim plans reportedly would have Jerusalem follow the model of the Vatican, whereby the Old City and the Temple Mount would be a sort of autonomous region under joint international management, including Israeli and PA representatives.
Reports by a senior PA official on Monday further clarified that Kerry’s plan would divide part of Jerusalem to the PA, while Jordan would have jurisdiction on holy sites in the Jewish capital…” (God’s Word teaches 120 times that Jerusalem belongs to the Jews. Away with Islamic boasting and Protestant apostasy called ‘Replacement Theology’ that states 2,604 times that the term Israel mentioned in Holy Scripture should be changed to ‘church’ and Jerusalem 613 times to ‘heaven’. What nonsense and blasphemy. Stick to your convictions Netanyahu – Psalm 122:6. See the next report.)
‘Arab States Will Never Recognize a Jewish State’
January 14, 2014 — Israel National News reports: “Arab states ‘will never recognize Israel’, the Palestinian Authority’s (PA) foreign minister stated on Monday, according to NRG/Maariv.
Riyad al-Malki was speaking to Radio Palestine after participating in a weekend meeting in Paris between U.S. Secretary State of John Kerry and foreign ministers of the Arab League.
In the interview, al-Malki said that at the meeting Kerry, who is mediating the talks between Israel and PA, presented some issues raised by both sides. One of these issues, according to al-Malki, is the need for Arab support for the ‘Jewish character’ of Israel. Kerry told the ministers that this issue remains one of the main points over which there is a disagreement.
In response, said al-Malki, the Arab foreign ministers expressed their full support for all the PA’s demands, especially regarding non-recognition of Israel as Jewish state.
‘The Arab states will never recognize a Jewish state,’ he stressed, according to NRG/Maariv.
He further noted that there is still no progress in the ongoing peace talks and that large gaps remain between the parties…”
