Iran’s Rouhani Anti-Israel Attack: Urges ‘Righteous’ Muslim Nations to ‘Rid the Region’ of ‘Zionism’
April 18, 2019 — Breitbart.com reports: “Iranian President Hassan Rouhani used an address at an Army Day parade in Tehran on Thursday to call on ‘righteous’ Muslim countries across the Middle East to unite against Israel and the United States.
In urging neighbouring countries to ‘drive back Zionism’, the Islamic republic’s leader said the U.S. and its ally Israel were the root cause of all the troubled region’s problems.
‘The region’s nations have lived alongside each other for centuries and never had a problem… If there is a problem, it is caused by others,’ he said in the speech broadcast live on state television. ‘Let us stand together, be together and rid the region of the aggressor’s presence.’
Rouhani assured neighbouring countries that Iran’s armed forces are ‘never against you or your national interests’ but are ‘standing against the aggressors.’
‘The power of our armed forces is the power of the region’s countries, the Islamic world’, he said. ‘If we have a problem in the region today, its roots are either with Zionism or America’s arrogance.’
Rouhani said Muslim nations must band together and ‘restore the historical right of the nation of Palestine,’ saying that ‘Zionism … has been committing crimes in the region for the past 70 years’,
‘The final victory will surely be with the righteous,’ he said…” (This will never happen. Almighty God has stated: “…I will give them [Israel] an everlasting name, that shall not be cut off” – Isaiah 56:5. Everlasting means everlasting. God promised to Abraham in Genesis 22:17: “…in blessing I will bless thee, and in multiplying I will multiply thy seed as the starts of the heaven, and as the sand which is upon the sea shore…” “And because he loved thy fathers, therefore he chose their seed after them, and brought thee out in his sight with his mighty power out of Egypt; To drive out nations from before thee greater and mightier than thou art, to bring thee in, to give thee their land for an inheritance, as it is this day. Know therefore this day, and consider it in thine heart, that the Lord he is God in heaven above, and upon the earth beneath: there is none else. Thou shalt keep therefore his statutes, and his commandments, which I command thee this day, that it may go well with thee, and with thy children after thee, and that thou mayest prolong thy days upon the earth, which the Lord thy God giveth thee, for ever” – Deuteronomy 4:37 – 40.)
Khamenei: Normalizing relations with Israel against the Quran
April 16, 2019 — Israel National News reports: “Iran’s Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, said on Monday that normalizing relations with Israel goes against the Quran and Islamic faith.
Speaking at the closing ceremony of a Quran competition in Tehran, Khamenei criticized ‘certain Islamic nations’ that are not adhering to Muslim principles, he claimed.
‘Unfortunately, the rulers of some Islamic countries do not adhere to Quranic teachings and instead of being ‘harsh against the unbelievers,’ they have become servants and followers of America and the Zionists; and instead of being ‘merciful to one another,’ they pave the way for divisions and wars, like the wars in Yemen and Syria, and the massacre of Muslims,’ Khamenei said, according to local media.
‘Today, many leaders of Arabic countries are of this kind,’ Khamenei added, claiming that some of those rulers ‘colluded with Israelis and stepped on the blood of Palestinians.’
He added that unlike some Islamic nations, Iran is putting the Quran at the heart of its decision-making, ‘no matter how angry this makes them (the enemies).’
‘Although today the hostilities look more than they were in terms of both volume and intensity, these actions and conspiracies are the last throes of our enemies’ enmity with the Islamic Republic,’ said Khamenei…” (The Gatestone Institute, in an article entitled: The Quran Says Jerusalem Belongs to the Jews – https://www.gatestoneinstitute.org/11680/quran-jerusalem-jews states: “…Although ordinary Muslims who might not actually have read their holy book could be excused for their ignorance about the Jewish roots of and rights to Israel and Jerusalem, the same cannot be said for the leaders of Muslim countries, imams and the heads of illustrious Islamic institutions. Dignitaries and scholars of that caliber should know better. Yet many of them repeat false assertions that contradict the Quran and scholarly interpretations of its verses.)
PA calls for European recognition of ‘Palestine’
April 18, 2019 — Israel National News reports: “Mohammad Shtayyeh, the new leader of the Palestinian Authority (PA) cabinet, on Wednesday called on European countries to hurry up and recognize the ‘state of Palestine’ within the 1967 borders.
In a meeting with the Swiss ambassador to the PA, Shtayyeh said that the European recognition of the ‘state of Palestine’ would save the two-state solution as Israel seeks to annex parts of Judea and Samaria.
Shtayyeh stressed that the Palestinians would not cave to the economic pressures exerted by the US and Israel on the Palestinian Authority in order to force them to accept the Trump administration’s so-called ‘Deal of the Century’.
He further said the Arab powers and countries should work to establish a joint international working group that would sponsor the peace process and oppose the Trump peace plan…” (Mohammad Shtayyeh does not know his history, or the Qur’an – “And , when Moses said to his people, “O my people, remember the favor of Allah [God] upon you when He appointed among you prophets and made you possessors and gave you that which He had not given anyone among the worlds. O my people, enter the Holy Land which Allah has assigned to you and do not turn back and [thus] become losers.” — Quran, Surah Al-Ma’idah 5:20-21. And he does not know the Bible — Genesis 15:18 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 in Joshua 1:4 we read: “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.” These verses encompass all of the land modern Israel currently possesses, plus all of the land of the Palestinians (the West Bank and Gaza), plus some of Egypt and Syria, plus all of Jordan, plus some of Saudi Arabia and Iraq. Israel currently possesses only a fraction of the land God has promised. See the next report.)
PA has plans to strengthen its hold on Jerusalem
April 14, 2019 — Israel National News reports: “Palestinian Authority (PA) cabinet chief Mohammad Shtayyeh said on Saturday, after his cabinet was approved by PA chairman Mahmoud Abbas, that he intends to work to strengthen the steadfastness of the Palestinian residents over their land.
In an interview with Palestine TV, Shtayyeh said that the presidency, the government, the security services, the justice system, the information system, the Fatah movement and the PLO member organizations are working to strengthen the legitimacy of the PLO and its leader Abbas.
According to Shtayyeh, his cabinet has plans related to housing residents in Area C of Judea and Samaria, which is under Israeli security and civil control, by strengthening residents’ steadfastness and thwarting Israeli activity.
He noted that the policy of strengthening the steadfastness of Palestinian residents will also be implemented throughout the city of Al Quds (eastern Jerusalem) and will include all Palestinian institutions operating there…”
Gantz; No to the 1967 lines, Jerusalem will remain united
April 3, 2019 — Israel National News reports: “Blue and White party leader Benny Gantz rejected a return to the pre-1967 borders and the division of Jerusalem.
Speaking to the Times of Israel, Gantz said that ‘We must maintain the Jordan Valley as a security border, we can’t withdraw to the ’67 lines, and Jerusalem must stay the undivided capital of Israel.
The former Chief of Staff also questioned the viability of Palestinian Authority chairman Mahmoud Abbas as a peace partner. ‘It’s very important that we have someone to talk to. Currently, that is not the situation. Only if we have both sides can we eventually move on.’
Gantz noted that Israelis come together during times of crisis and blamed Prime Minister Netanyahu for dividing the nation. ‘Netanyahu did a lot for this country, his brother was killed, but – enough is enough.’
Saying that Netanyahu is a ‘good man’ who he has nothing against, Gantz nevertheless insisted that it was time for a new prime minister…” (930 times God promises Jerusalem forever to the Jews. Soon all Hell will break loose in the Middle East. Joel 3:2 warns today’s politicians that World War III occurs because of parting God’s land. It won’t succeed. Christ will return, stop the horrendous war and reign over the world from the Throne of David in Jerusalem forever – Revelation 11:18; Luke 1:32, 33. Psalm 122:6 – “Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: they shall prosper that love thee.”)
