Pray for the Peace of Jerusalem


Kerry Plan: Arab Capital in East Jerusalem


January 29, 2014Israel National News reports: “US Secretary of State John Kerry is about to present a plan for peace between Israel and the Palestinian Authority (PA) that will call for a phased Israeli withdrawal from Judea and Samaria based on the 1949 lines, with ‘unprecedented’ security arrangements in the strategic Jordan Valley, writes Thomas Friedman in the New York Times – one of the journalists considered most close to the Obama administration.

The Israeli withdrawal will not include certain settlement blocs, but Israel will compensate the Arab side for this with Israeli territory. The deal will call for ‘Palestine’ to have a capital in Arab East Jerusalem and to recognize Israel as the nation state of the Jewish people. It will not include any right of return for Palestinian refugees into pre-1967 Israel, Friedman says.

Kerry has been ‘fanatically relentless’ but also ‘highly sophisticated’ in his attempts to bridge the gaps between Israel and the PA, he adds. ‘After letting the two sides fruitlessly butt heads for six months, he’s now planning to present a U.S. framework that will lay out what Washington considers the core concessions Israelis and Palestinians need to make for a fair, lasting deal.’…” (930 times God promises Jerusalem forever to the Jews. President Obama and U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry are violating the promises of the Almighty God to Israel. Soon all Hell will break loose in the Middle East. Joel 3:2 warns todays 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. See the next report.)


Rabbis Threaten Kerry with ‘Divine Wrath’


February 5, 2014Israel National News reports: “A group called Rabbis from the Committee to Save the Land and People of Israel sent a letter to US Secretary of State John Kerry this Sunday, warning him to end his ‘antagonism’ towards Israel.

The rabbis sharply criticized Kerry for his plans to establish an Arab capital in Jerusalem for Palestinian Authority (PA) Chairman Mahmoud Abbas, and to have Israel withdraw to the 1949 Armistice lines. On Saturday, Kerry threatened Israel with an international boycott if peace talks fail, in addition to previous threats of a ‘Third Intifada’ last year.

‘Your incessant efforts to expropriate integral parts of our Holy Land and hand them over to Abbas’s terrorist gang, amount to a declaration of war against the Creator and Ruler of the universe. For G-d awarded the entire Land of Israel to our ancestors, Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, in order that they bequeath it, as an everlasting inheritance, to their descendants, the Jewish people, until the end of all time,’ opens the rabbis’ letter.

The letter was signed by Rabbi Gedalya Axelrod, emeritus head of the Haifa Rabbinical Court, Rabbi Yisrael Ariel, Chairman of the Temple Institute, Rabbi Ben Tziyon Grossman of Migdal Haemek, Rabbi Shalom Dov Wolpo, Dean of the Institute for the Complete Code of Maimonides, and Rabbi Yigal Pizam, Dean of Yeshivat Kiryat Shmuel.

Warning of the imminent security threat that Kerry’s plans would place Israelis in, and bringing the example of Gaza’s having turned into a launching pad for rockets, the rabbis slammed the plan for seeking to immediately uproot ‘20% of the Jews now living productively in Judea, Samaria and the Jordan valley.’

The letter adds that Kerry’s plan ‘would force tens of thousands of Jews to be evicted from their homes and livelihoods, devastating their lives financially, economically and psychologically, as happened to those expelled from the flourishing Gaza settlements, most of whom still suffer from the expulsion’s ruinous after-effects.’

Drawing on Jewish history, the letters declares to Kerry: ‘If you continue on this destructive path, you will ensure your everlasting disgrace in Jewish history for bringing calamity upon the Jewish people – like Nebuchadnezzar and Titus who destroyed, respectively, the first and second great Temples and the entire Holy City of Jerusalem, and who, by Heavenly punishment, brought eventual disaster upon themselves, too.’…”


Ya’alon: Palestinians see destruction of Jews as realistic possibility


January 27, 2014The Jerusalem Post reports: “Israel will no longer tolerate Palestinian incitement and attempts to isolate it in international institutions, Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon said on Monday.

Speaking at an event to mark International Holocaust Remembrance Day, the defense minister lashed out at the Palestinian Authority for claiming to seek peace on one hand yet encouraging ‘efforts to boycott Israel.’

‘In the Palestinian Authority, whose leadership presents itself as one that is striving to reach an agreement with us, the brutal, insufferable incitement against the State of Israel and the Jewish people continues,’ Ya’alon said.

‘This incitement is manifest in the education system and the media, where the hatred and poison ought to be an affront to any human,’ he said. ‘It is creating another generation of Palestinian children who are taught to look at the expulsion and destruction of the Jews as a realistic possibility instead of educating them toward a culture of peace and co-existence alongside Israel.’…” (Israel will never be destroyed again. Yahweh God states in Isaiah 56:5 – “I will give them [Israel] an everlasting name…” See the next five reports.)


Iran: ‘We Won’t Leave Zionists with Air to Breathe’


February 2, 2014 Israel National News reports: “Hossein Salami, commander of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards, threatened US, the West, and Israel in a televised interview Saturday, according to Maariv.

‘If the Islamic nation would unite, it could minimize the breathing room of the US and the West until the Zionist regime would no longer have room to breathe,’ the commander threatened on Iranian state television.

Salami downplayed the possibility of a military attack against Iran, while noting that the US stated recently that it is leaving a military option on the table.

‘We also have strong military capabilities that can attack and destroy [our enemies],’ Salami boasted. ‘We can threaten the interests of major powers in every arena; but during the diplomatic negotiations we are not talking about military power.’

‘Americans are wrong in their assessments [of Iran], which leads them to adopt mistaken policies,’ he continued. ‘They need to look at the distant past and learn their military might not yield results. If they think that by means of threats they will make us retract our positions, they are wrong.’…”


Gaza Youth Encouraged to Carry Out Terror Attacks


January 24, 2014Israel National News reports: “Suicide terror attacks against the ‘Zionist enemy’ were glorified in a televised graduation ceremony for a Hamas youth camp in Gaza.

The ceremony aired on Hamas’s Al-Aqsa TV on January 16 and translated by the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI).

In the video, the campers are encouraged to ‘rock the fortifications of the enemy’ and become liberators of the land that was ‘occupied’ by Israel.

The campers are heard saying, ‘Our message to the Zionist enemy, everywhere and at any time, is this: You shall never enjoy a pleasant life on our beloved homeland. We, the sons of the ‘Futuwwa’ youth camps, will confront you on every hill, in every valley, and on every road. Nothing awaits you here but to be killed. Nothing awaits you here but to be killed or to leave.’

The graduation ceremony was attended by Hamas’s Gaza Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh, as well as by Hamas Education Minister Osama Al-Mazini and Interior Minister Fathi Hammad…”


Fatah Leader Calls for ‘Armed Uprising’


January 26, 2014 Israel National News reports: “A senior member of Fatah, the party headed by Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas, has called to renew terrorist attacks on Israel, Maariv/nrg reports.

Fatah Central Committee member Tawfik Tirawi reportedly told Al-Miadin that there will be no new Arab state in Judea, Samaria and Gaza in the near future, and not even in 20 years. For that reason, he said, Fatah must resume the ‘violent uprising’ against Israel – meaning terrorism.
‘That’s the only way things will change,’ he argued.

Fatah must ‘join all of the organizations, both those operating under the Palestinian Authority, and those outside it,’ he added, in an apparent reference to Hamas and Islamic Jihad. Hamas remains openly committed to obliterating Israel, while Islamic Jihad recently threatened to resume suicide bombings.

Tirawi argued that Fatah never truly abandoned terrorism. ‘Fatah never abandoned any form of action, including armed resistance,’ he insisted…”


FHamas Trains 13,000 Teens to Emulate ‘Suicide Martyrs’


January 16, 2014Breitbart.com reports: “Hamas has historically engaged in concerted efforts to brainwash its youth to wage violent jihad. Roughly 13,000 high school students participated in a week-long training camp geared to enable the teenagers ‘to follow in the footsteps of the suicide martyrs.’

This is more than twice the enrollment from last year’s camp, the Times of Israel reports. The ‘Pioneers of Liberation’ camp included weapons training, marching exercises, and ‘security awareness’ classes concerning the identification of Israeli spies.

While addressing the graduation ceremony, Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh warned Israel that ‘this is a generation which knows no fear. It is the generation of the missile, the tunnel, and the suicide operations.’ Hamas’ interior minister said that the training was in preparation for the next war with Israel…”


Intel head: 170,000 rockets and missiles threaten Israel


January 29, 2014 The Jerusalem Post reports: “Military intel head Gen. Aviv Kochavi said on Wednesday during his remarks at the INSS annual security conference that Israel’s ability to deter enemies is strong, but on the other hand, terror is still a challenge.

‘We call this period in time the ‘Era of Fire’, in light of the amount of missiles and rockets we face as a constant threat. There are about 170,000 rockets and missiles that threaten Israel,’ Kochavi said.

‘For the first time the enemy now has the ability to hit Israeli cities hard,’ he commented.
‘The state of Israel is surrounded 360 degrees with active enemies. The conventional threats have not disappeared.’

Speaking of the challenges of guarding Israel’s border’s, however, Kochavi said that neighboring countries have little interest in war.

‘The countries around us are busy with themselves, they have less funds to start a war. There is no question that there is a decrease in such threats but they have not given up,’ he said…”


Jordan’s FM Rejects Recognizing Israel as Jewish State


February 3, 2014 Israel National News reports: “Jordan’s Foreign Minister said Sunday that he was against recognizing Israel as a Jewish state, the Jordanian website Ammon News reports.

The minister, Nasser Judeh, also rejected the idea of Jordan being an alternative home for Palestinian Arabs.

Speaking during a parliament session which dealt with U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry’s peace plan, Judeh reiterated that Jordan will not be an ‘alternative home for anybody.’

Judeh described American efforts to push peace talks between Israel and the Palestinian Authority (PA) as a ‘serious attempt’ to reach tangible results.

‘Jordan is integrally involved in and has big role in the Palestinian-Israeli talks,’ he added, according to Ammon News.

Judeh stressed that Jordan is not absent from the peace negotiations and will not accept any solution that contradicts with the country’s interests and national security…” (Israel will always be a Jewish state. Though Satan has always stood against Israel — I Chronicles 21:1 – Yahweh God will “…send a fire against Magog [Russia] and her Arabic allies –Daniel 11:40; Isaiah 17:1; Ezekiel 38:5-7 and Psalms 83:5-7. In the heat of the battle to destroy Israel – Psalms 83:4 – the enemies of God will be crushed as Jesus, the Son of God sets up His kingdom. Isaiah 59:20 states: “…the Redeemer shall come to Zion [Jerusalem], sent by His Father – Psalms 2:6 – to reign over the world from Jerusalem forever – Luke 1:32 – 33.)
