Palestinian Terror Youth Summer Camps Begin: Military Training, Indoctrination, Planning ‘Demise of all Jews, Israel’
June 30, 2021 — Breitbart.com reports: “Hamas’ military wing, the Izz ad-Din al-Qassam Brigades, as well as the Palestinian Islamic Jihad, have opened registration recently for their annual summer camps for Gaza youth, where children as young as nine are trained in marksmanship, kidnapping, and tunnel warfare, as they’re encouraged to become next-generation terrorists.
This summer’s camps, which begin on Tuesday and are designed for young primary school students as well as college- and even post-college age Gaza residents, are dubbed ‘Sword of Jerusalem,’ after Hamas’ recent conflict with the Jewish state, which began after the U.S.-designated terror group launched over 4,000 rockets at civilian population centers throughout the Jewish state last month.
Many camps carry anti-Israel themes and are named after terrorists who murdered Israelis in the past…” (Proverbs 22:6 states: Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it. This is seen in the New Testament in the life of Timothy. Paul writes in II Timothy 1:5: When I call to remembrance the unfeigned faith that is in thee, which first dwelt in thy grandmother Lois, and thy mother Eunice; and I am persuaded in thee also. Islam also believes in training up a child – but not to follow the Lord. The Islamic State refers to them as Cubs of the Caliphate and has released training videos showing them murdering helpless prisoners. How warped can these barbarians be? Jesus said in Matthew 19:14: …Suffer the little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me: for of such is the kingdom of heaven. And in Matthew 18:6 He stated: But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea.)
Nasrallah: There are no people in Israel, only settlers and occupiers
July 6, 2021 — The Jerusalem Post reports: “‘There are no people in the Israeli entity, they are all occupiers and settlers,’ said Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah during a speech on Monday afternoon.
The speech was delivered at the opening of a conference titled ‘Palestine is Victorious,’ convened in Lebanon in order to renew media discourse and manage the conflict with Israel.
Nasrallah did not specify whether Arab Israelis were also considered occupiers and settlers.
With tensions rising between the US and pro-Iranian militias in Syria and Iraq, Nasrallah stressed on Monday that Hezbollah is ‘facing the American hegemony’ in Iraq and Syria…” (…when thy days be fulfilled, and thou shalt sleep with thy fathers, I will set up thy seed after thee, which shall proceed out of thy bowels, and I will establish his kingdom. He shall build an house for my name, and I will stablish the throne of his kingdom for ever…And thine house and thy kingdom shall be established for ever before thee: thy throne shall be established for ever – II Samuel 7:12, 16. I have made a covenant with my chosen, I have sworn unto David my servant, Thy seed will I establish for ever, and build up thy throne to all generations – Psalms 89:3-4. He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Highest: and the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of his father David: And he shall reign over the house of Jacob for ever; and of his kingdom there shall be no end—Luke 1:32, 33. Jerusalem is the Eternal Capital of Israel, and the Lord Jesus Christ will reign from David’s Throne in Jerusalem for ever and ever. See the next report.)
Palestinian Authority official: No relation between Israel and Jews
July 9, 2021 — Israel National News reports: “Palestinian Authority official Mohammad Shtayyeh explained this week in a speech to members of the Fatah party how he thinks the narrative against Israel should be presented.
He asked those present to engineer the public consciousness in a way that would clarify the difference between the Jewish people and the State of Israel.
‘To fight the narrative, one has to understand that clearly, the Hebrews, the Jews, and the Israelis are not the same thing.’ said Shtayyeh in a video translated by Mechon Mamre.
He bases his explanations on various Islamic commentaries on the Bible. ‘Israel is Jacob. The children of Israel, they are the children of Jacob; 1300 years separate his children from the prophet Moses, making the Israelites and the Jews two different entities.’…”
Islamic Jihad threatens escalation of violence from Gaza
July 27, 2021 — Israel National News reports: “The Islamic Jihad terrorist organization has threatened that it intends to escalate the situation on the Gaza border.
Tariq Salami, a spokesman for the Islamic Jihad movement, told the Ma’an news agency that the Israeli attack last night in retaliation to the continued launching of arson balloons was a ‘failed attempt to improve the army’s image’ after Operation Guardian of the Walls.
He said, ‘Israel is trying to impose new rules of the game, but it will not succeed because the resistance organizations are monitoring its crimes and for them all options are open to thwart Israeli actions that violate the rights of the Palestinian people.’
Salami added that the terrorist organizations had imposed new rules of the game in the last round of confrontation and that the last word would be theirs…” (Israel will never be destroyed. God has declared His love for Israel from its very beginning: And as for thy nativity, in the day thou wast born thy navel was not cut, neither wast thou washed in water to supple thee; thou wast not salted at all, nor swaddled at all. None eye pitied thee, to do any of these unto thee, to have compassion upon thee; but thou wast cast out in the open field, to the lothing of thy person, in the day that thou wast born. And when I passed by thee, and saw thee polluted in thine own blood, I said unto thee when thou wast in thy blood, Live; yea, I said unto thee when thou wast in thy blood, Live… Then washed I thee with water; yea, I throughly washed away thy blood from thee, and I anointed thee with oil – Ezekiel 16:4 – 6; 9. Deuteronomy 7:6-8 states: For thou art an holy people unto the Lord thy God: the Lord thy God hath chosen thee to be a special people unto himself, above all people that are upon the face of the earth. The Lord did not set his love upon you, nor choose you, because ye were more in number than any people; for ye were the fewest of all people: But because the Lord loved you, and because he would keep the oath which he had sworn unto your fathers, hath the Lord brought you out with a mighty hand, and redeemed you out of the house of bondmen, from the hand of Pharaoh king of Egypt. Despite the rantings and ravings of the world: …let us cut them off from being a nation, that the name of Israel may be no more in remembrance – Psalm 83:4, God has promised: …I will give them [Israel] an everlasting name, that shall not be cut off – Isaiah 56:5.

Israel warns US: Iran approaching nuclear weapons capability
July 26, 2021 — Israel National News reports: “Israel recently warned the US that Iran is approaching the point of becoming a nuclear threshold state, that is a country with operational capability to build nuclear weapons, Kan 11 News reported on Sunday.
According to the report, the message was conveyed in several conversations of senior Israeli officials, including Foreign Minister Yair Lapid and Defense Minister Benny Gantz, with their American counterparts.
The report further stated that in internal discussions, Prime Minister Naftali Bennett said that the situation is that Iran is actually accelerating its actions on the nuclear issue.
A senior diplomat said, ‘Something needs to happen regarding the negotiations with Iran. This ‘limbo’ cannot continue a time when Iran is advancing rapidly to the point where it is a threshold state.’
Iran has gradually scaled back its compliance with the 2015 deal in response to former US President Donald Trump’s withdrawal from the agreement in 2018, but has been holding indirect talks with the Biden administration on a return to the agreement…”
