NEWS FROM ISRAEL AND THE MIDDLE EAST
Nasrallah: Arab states that support Israel ‘will fall’ with it
March 6, 2016 — The Times of Israel reports: “Hezbollah chief Hassan Nasrallah denounced Israel on Sunday as a ‘permanent enemy’ of the Arabs, and lashed out at Saudi Arabia amid a continuing spat between his Shiite, pro-Iran organization and the Sunni-dominated Gulf kingdom.
‘O Zionists, if any Arab regime supports you, it will fall with you,’ he said, according to a translation of his words by the Hezbollah media outlet al-Manar.
‘Israel’s presence will never become normal and it can’t be an ally to Arabs while it is terror itself,’ he was quoted as saying. ‘No Arab regime will be able to normalize ties with Israel, neither the House of Saud nor anyone.’
In the televised broadcast, intended to mark one week since the funeral of one of the group’s top commanders, Ali Fayyad, near the Syrian battleground city of Aleppo, Nasrallah defended his Shiite group against widespread criticism in Lebanon and the Arab world over its allegiance to Iran’s ruling ayatollahs and its fighting on behalf of Assad in the Syrian civil war…” (Arab States? Yes. Israel? Never. Yahweh, the Judeo-Christian God promises in Isaiah 56:5 – 7: “Even unto them will I give in mine house and within my walls a place and a name better than of sons and of daughters: I will give them [Israel] an everlasting name, that shall not be cut off. Also the sons of the stranger, that join themselves to the Lord, to serve him, and to love the name of the Lord, to be his servants, every one that keepeth the sabbath from polluting it, and taketh hold of my covenant; Even them will I bring to my holy mountain, and make them joyful in my house of prayer: their burnt offerings and their sacrifices shall be accepted upon mine altar; for mine house shall be called an house of prayer for all people.)
Abbas: Intifada – a peaceful popular uprising
March 7, 2016 — Israel National News reports: “Palestinian Authority (PA) Chairman Mahmoud Abbas met with officials of his Fatah faction last Wednesday.
During the meeting, Abbas once again expressed his support for the French political initiative, which seeks to set up a support group of the permanent Security Council members, some Arab and European states and international organizations.
‘There is a need to convene an international peace conference in order to extract the current deadlock in the peace process, and that the Palestinians intend to appeal to the Security Council to get resolutions which will cease all settlement in the Palestinian territories,’ said Abbas.
Abbas dubbed the current intifada as a ‘popular peaceful uprising’ initiated as a proportional response to the ‘occupation’, Israel’s non-commitment to implement agreements, damage to the holy places of Islam and Christianity, arrests, house demolitions, killing and expulsion of Palestinians, and the ‘siege’ on Gaza…” (This plan will fail. “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. Know therefore that the Lord thy God, he is God, the faithful God, which keepeth covenant and mercy with them that love him and keep his commandments to a thousand generations; And repayeth them that hate him to their face, to destroy them: he will not be slack to him that hateth him, he will repay him to his face. Thou shalt therefore keep the commandments, and the statutes, and the judgments, which I command thee this day, to do them. Wherefore it shall come to pass, if ye hearken to these judgments, and keep, and do them, that the Lord thy God shall keep unto thee the covenant and the mercy which he sware unto thy fathers: And he will love thee, and bless thee, and multiply thee: he will also bless the fruit of thy womb, and the fruit of thy land, thy corn, and thy fruit of the vine, and thine oil, the increase of thy kine, and the flocks of thy sheep, in the land which he sware unto thy fathers to give thee. Thou shalt be blessed above all people: there shall not be male or female barren among you, or among your cattle. And the Lord will take away from thee all sickness, and will put none of the evil diseases of Egypt, which thou knowest, upon thee; but will lay them upon all them that hate thee. And thou shalt consume all the people which the Lord thy God shall deliver thee; thine eye shall have no pity upon them: neither shalt thou serve their gods; for that will be a snare unto thee” – Deuteronomy 7:7 – 16.
The next report will also become a flop because Israel is God’s elect – Isaiah 42:1, 45:4, 65:9 – 20.)
PA boasts of the ‘achievements’ of the ‘intifada’
March 4, 2016 — Israel National News reports: “The Palestinian Authority (PA) is boasting over the ‘achievements’ of the current terror wave, which Palestinian Arab terrorist groups have named the ‘Al-Quds Intifada’.
The Gaza-based Al-Quds Center on Thursday published statistics regarding the wave of terrorism against Israel for the month of February 2016.
According to the Arab organization, during the month of February there were 30 stabbing attacks (and attempted attacks), 13 shooting attacks, five car attacks (and attempted attacks), over 11 firebomb attacks and 10 attacks involving explosives.
The Center further listed the following ‘achievements’ of the ‘intifada’: The torching of a synagogue in Gush Etzion, the torching of a bus in Jerusalem in a firebomb attack, an attempt to kidnap an Israeli soldier in the Jezreel Valley, stealing weapons from a soldier in the Qalqiliya area, burning an army jeep in the Kabatia region and clashes with IDF forces in Qalandiya.
The PA has continued to incite to terrorism against Israelis, as shown just this week in a new review of dozens of Palestinian Authority educational books for the 2015-2016 school year.
The review found that the PA education system continues to encourage terror against Jews and completely ignores the Holocaust in history books discussing World War II…”
