Iranian poster on Israel border: ‘We are coming’
June 30, 2017 — WND.com reports: “According to a prominent Muslim cleric and ‘Leader of the Islamic Revolution,’ every single Muslim in the world must wage jihad against the state of Israel, not just those in the Middle East.
Ayatollah Sayyid Ali Khamenei, who posts comments on an English language website, spoke recently at a gathering of ‘officials, people from all walks of life and the ambassadors of Muslim countries.’
In his speech, he said, ‘According to Islamic jurisprudence, once faced with the domination of the enemy over Islamic territory, all Muslims are duty-bound to campaign and carry out jihad in whatever possible form and, therefore, fighting against the Zionist regime is incumbent upon and mandatory for the entire Islamic world.’
Khamenei declared that the Palestinian issue was ‘the foremost problem of the Muslim world,’ and he called for unity among Sunnis and Shiites to achieve this common goal.
‘Division and dispute are harmful to Islam and the Muslim Ummah and conversely, Muslim countries pulling closer to each other and refraining from pitting [their military] forces against each other conforms to divine wisdom and benefits all Islamic countries,’ he said…” (Iran’s goal is found in Psalm 83:4: “Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation; that the name of Israel may be no more in remembrance.” As I have emphatically stated before – it won’t happen. God has promised: “…I will give them [Israel] an everlasting name, that shall not be cut off” – Isaiah 56:5.)
Iranians confirm goal is to ‘rule worldwide’
July 5, 2017 — WND.com reports: “Remember all those ‘Islamophobes’ who are constantly fretting that Islam wants to take over the world?
That, in fact, is the religion’s ultimate objective, according to top commanders of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps in Iran, says a report in Joseph Farah’s G2 Bulletin.
According to the Middle East Media Research Institute, the commanders believe the Islamic revolution in Iran is only the first stage on a path to spreading the rule of Shiite Islam in the Middle East and worldwide.
The ‘mission of advancing the Islamic Revolution to these heights falls to the IRGC commanders,’ MEMRI said.
‘The commanders reiterated the argument that the U.S., the leader of the ‘world of arrogance,’ opposes Islam, and thus also Iran, which is, they say, the standard-bearer of the Revolution and its global vision,’ MEMRI reported…” (This is nothing new, the Grand Ayatollah Khomeini stated in 1981: “I say let Iran go up in smoke, provided Islam emerges triumphant in the rest of the world.”)
‘Israel will be around long after Iranian regime is gone’
June 26, 2017 — Israel National News reports: “Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu spoke at the Birthright Israel’s Mega Event in Rishon Letzion Sunday evening, at a gathering marking the 600,000th Birthright participant brought to Israel.
Along with Netanyahu, the event was attended by American Jewish philanthropists Sheldon Adelson and his wife Miriam, former minister Yossi Beilin, Meir Shamir, Birthright Israel board chairman Michael Steinhardt, sitting Knesset members, and donors from around the world.
‘By coming here you join the Israeli soldiers in helping secure Israel’s future. I want you to take everything that you see and share it with others, tell others about the miracle of Israel, this rare and thriving democracy in the Middle East’, said the Prime Minister.
‘It’s a strong country ready to defend itself from threats and also reach out in peace for those wishing for it. When they attack us, stand proud and say who you are for: is it the free people of Israel or those severing off heads? If you stand for the free, stand for Israel, for the truth. Tell everyone to come see it for themselves- we will be waiting for you; this is your Birthright.’…” (Amen, Prime Minister Netanyahu. God has promised the land to Israel for all eternity. In Genesis 15:18 God states: “In the same day the Lord made a covenant with Abram, saying, Unto thy seed have I given this land, from the river of Egypt unto the great river, the river Euphrates.” And Joshua 1:4, God tells Joshua: “From the wilderness and this Lebanon even unto the great river, the river Euphrates, all the land of the Hittites, and unto the great sea toward the going down of the sun, shall be your coast.” Currently Israel possesses just a fraction of the land that God has promised them.

“I have one message to Iran: Do not threaten Israel”
June 20, 2017 — Israel National News reports: “Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu on Monday warned Iran not to threaten Israel after Tehran launched ballistic missiles at a Syrian base of the Islamic State group.
Iran’s Revolutionary Guard said it had fired six missiles from western Iran into northeastern Syria on Sunday, targeting ‘terror bases.’
The Guard said the strike was ‘in retaliation’ for June 7 attacks in Tehran that killed 17 people in the first IS-claimed operations in the country.
Netanyahu has repeatedly said Iran is a threat to the Jewish state, the Middle East and potentially the world.
‘We follow their actions and we follow their words,’ he said Monday. ‘I have one message to Iran: Do not threaten Israel.’
‘The army and our security forces are constantly monitoring the activity of Iran in the region,’ Netanyahu told senior members of his Likud party on Monday.
‘This activity also includes their attempts to establish themselves in Syria and, of course, to transfer advanced weapons to Hezbollah and other operations,’ a party statement quoted him as saying…”
UNESCO: Cave of the Patriarchs belongs to Palestinian Authority
July 7, 2017 — Israel National News reports: “UNESCO on Friday announced their decision to award Israel’s Cave of the Patriarchs (Me’arat Hamachpela) to convicted terrorist and Hevron Mayor Tiyassir Abu Sanina, as a representative of the Fatah’s Palestinian Authority.
Adam and Eve, as well as Avraham and Sarah, Yitzhak and Rivka, and Yaakov and Leah, are buried in the cave, which Avraham bought from Ephron the Hittite, long before Islam existed.
‘The hypocrisy knows no bounds,’ Public Security Minister Gilad Erdan (Likud) said. ‘The Palestinians campaign of incitement and lies via UNESCO.’
‘UNESCO’s obscenity has been exposed: While ISIS destroys historical sites in Aleppo, Palmyra, Mosul, and other areas, UNESCO chooses to concentrate on Hevron and the Cave of the Patriarchs, which was never, and were never, under any threat for as long as the State of Israel has existed.’
‘You cannot rewrite history, and you cannot erase it. Our father Avraham bought the Cave of the Patriarchs and paid for it in full. It is, and has always been, the burial place of our forefathers. Our response will be to strengthen and deepen our connection to the Jewish city of Hevron.’
Education Minister Naftali Bennett (Jewish Home) said, ‘The Jewish connection to Hevron has existed for thousands of years. Hevron was the cradle of King David’s dynasty, and the Cave of Machpela is the first Jewish acquisition in Israel, and the burial place of our nation’s fathers and mothers. It is one of our most ancient our ancient heritage sites.’…” (What utter lunacy on the part of the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization [UNESCO]. In Genesis 23 Sarah died and Abraham sought out a burial place for her: “And Abraham stood up, and bowed himself to the people of the land, even to the children of Heth. And he communed with them, saying, If it be your mind that I should bury my dead out of my sight; hear me, and intreat for me to Ephron the son of Zohar, That he may give me the cave of Machpelah, which he hath, which is in the end of his field; for as much money as it is worth he shall give it me for a possession of a buryingplace amongst you. And Ephron dwelt among the children of Heth: and Ephron the Hittite answered Abraham in the audience of the children of Heth, even of all that went in at the gate of his city, saying, Nay, my lord, hear me: the field give I thee, and the cave that is therein, I give it thee; in the presence of the sons of my people give I it thee: bury thy dead. And Abraham bowed down himself before the people of the land. And he spake unto Ephron in the audience of the people of the land, saying, But if thou wilt give it, I pray thee, hear me: I will give thee money for the field; take it of me, and I will bury my dead there. And Ephron answered Abraham, saying unto him, My lord, hearken unto me: the land is worth four hundred shekels of silver; what is that betwixt me and thee? bury therefore thy dead. And Abraham hearkened unto Ephron; and Abraham weighed to Ephron the silver, which he had named in the audience of the sons of Heth, four hundred shekels of silver, current money with the merchant. And the field of Ephron which was in Machpelah, which was before Mamre, the field, and the cave which was therein, and all the trees that were in the field, that were in all the borders round about, were made sure” – Genesis 23:8 – 17. Abraham, Sarah, Isaac, Rebecca, Jacob and Leah are all buried in this cave. While it is not mentioned in the Bible, Rabbinical Literature teaches that Adam and Eve are buried there as well.)
