Pray for Israel, Pray for Peace

October 7, 2023PJMedia.com reports: “Fifty years ago, almost to the day, on Oct. 6, 1973, Israel was attacked on the holy day of Yom Kippur. I remember being a child attending services and the Rabbi stopping the liturgy to tell us what had happened and to pray for Israel. On Oct. 7, 2023, Israel has again been attacked, this time on the holiday of Shemini Atzeret. Once again, our people and nation have been attacked on a holy day. All reservists have been called up, and Israel is again fighting for her life.

Hamas terrorists infiltrated Israeli communities through the Gaza Strip and launched a surprise attack in conjunction with over 5,000 rockets fired into Israel. Horrific videos of terror are filling the internet. One clip from Gaza shows a lifeless Israeli soldier being trampled by an angry crowd. Hamas asks that all Arab nations attack Israel immediately to ‘set the earth on fire.’ The Hamas commander, Mohammed Deif, specifically asked all terror groups in Syria, Lebanon, and Iraq — all of which are funded through Iran — to join in a war against Israel. Israeli civilians are being specifically attacked, slaughtered, and kidnapped as hostages. We see video after video demonstrating that the Hamas terrorists act in ways that are beyond comprehension by any human being. Rather, they act like sick, rabid animals or zombies who have lost any sense of humanity…”  (Keep not thou silence, O God: hold not thy peace, and be not still, O God. For, lo, thine enemies make a tumult: and they that hate thee have lifted up the head. They have taken crafty counsel against thy people, and consulted against thy hidden ones. They have said, Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation; that the name of Israel may be no more in remembrance. For they have consulted together with one consent: they are confederate against thee: The tabernacles of Edom, and the Ishmaelites; of Moab, and the Hagarenes; Gebal, and Ammon, and Amalek; the Philistines with the inhabitants of Tyre; Assur also is joined with them: they have holpen the children of Lot. Selah. Do unto them as unto the Midianites; as to Sisera, as to Jabin, at the brook of Kison: Which perished at Endor: they became as dung for the earth. Make their nobles like Oreb, and like Zeeb: yea, all their princes as Zebah, and as Zalmunna: Who said, Let us take to ourselves the houses of God in possession. O my God, make them like a wheel; as the stubble before the wind. As the fire burneth a wood, and as the flame setteth the mountains on fire;  So persecute them with thy tempest, and make them afraid with thy storm.  Fill their faces with shame; that they may seek thy name, O Lord. Let them be confounded and troubled for ever; yea, let them be put to shame, and perish: That men may know that thou, whose name alone is Jehovah, art the most high over all the earth Psalm 83:1-18.)

Photos of babies being burnt, decapitated confirmed

October 13, 2023The Jerusalem Post reports: “The Jerusalem Post can now confirm based on verified photos of the bodies that the reports of babies being burnt and decapitated in Hamas’s assault on Kfar Aza are correct. May their memory be a blessing.

The photos were shown to US Secretary of State Antony Blinken during his visit to Israel on Thursday by the Public Diplomacy Directorate in the Prime Minister’s Office. Later in the day, the photos were published by the Prime Minister’s Office on Twitter. The photos are graphic and have a content warning covering them until a button reading ‘show’ is pressed.

In the past two days, the Hamas terrorist movement has launched a campaign denying that it kidnapped, murdered, and abused civilians during its attack on southern Israel.

In a video published by Hamas, the movement dismissed the reports of babies being decapitated in Kfar Aza. On Thursday, Hamas deputy leader Saleh al-Arouri claimed as well that the 1,200 members of the al-Qassam Brigades who infiltrated Israel did not target civilians, saying Palestinian civilians had entered later and fought with Israeli civilians…”  (Hamas is full of savage barbarians that continue to sink lower and lower into depravity.  What human being could decapitate and burn a baby to teach others a lesson?   Our Lord showed great compassion towards children: “Then were there brought unto him little children, that he should put his hands on them, and pray and the disciples rebuked them.  But Jesus said, Suffer little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me; for of such is the kingdom of heaven.  And he laid his hands on them, and departed thence” – Matthew 19:13-15.)

Handwritten note found on Hamas terrorist calls for beheading, removing hearts and livers

October 25, 2023The Jerusalem Post reports: “A handwritten note discovered on the body of a Hamas terrorist encouraged the fighters to carry out a merciless massacre, including decapitation and dismemberment of the victims’ bodies. 

The note, announced by IDF Spokesperson R.-Adm. Daniel Hagari in an interview with American television network CBS, contains words of encouragement from the Hamas leadership declaring the religious importance of killing Jews, and imparts inspiration from historical Muslim leaders who massacred men, sold women and children into slavery, and looted cities.

The terrorists are encouraged to decapitate heads and remove the hearts and livers of their victims. 

‘You must sharpen the blades of your swords and be pure in your intentions before Allah. Know that the enemy is a disease that has no cure, except beheading and removing the hearts and livers. Attack them!’ the note reads…”  (The Koran calls Jews “apes” and “pigs” I quote: “…those who incurred the curse of Allah and his wrath…those of whom some he transformed into apes and swines…those who worshipped evil…these are many times worse in rank, and far more astray then the even path” Surah 5:60. See also Surah 7:166.

The American Thinker web page gives the Top ten reasons why sharia is bad for all societies:

  • Islam commands offensive, aggressive and unjust jihad which is a holy war
  • Islam orders apostates to be killed
  • Islam orders death for Muslims and death for non-Muslim critics of Muhammad and the Quran, and even Sharia itself
  • Islam orders unmarried fornicators to be whipped, put to death, and adulterers to be stones
  • Islam commands all homosexuals to be executed
  • Islam commands that highway robbers should be crucified or mutilated
  • Islam commands that a male and female thief must have a hand cut off
  • Islam allows an injured plaintiff to exact legal revenge, physical eye for physical eye
  • Islam allows husbands to beat their wives
  • Islam commands that drinkers and gamblers be beaten.

Hamas religious scholars: ‘Spill the blood of Israeli soldiers and settlers’

October 26, 2023YnetNews.com reports: “Officials in the Religious Scholars Association of Palestine in Gaza issued a decree calling for the killing of Israeli soldiers and ‘settlers,’ inside and outside the Gaza Strip.

The association is the central governing body that is affiliated with Hamas and functions from inside the enclave. They are charged with publishing religious and moral guidelines, including those issued to the Izz ad-Din al-Qassam Brigades, the military arm of Hamas.

Since the war’s second day, on October 8, while skirmishes and firefights were still raging inside Israeli territory, the decree called for the taking of lives.

Signed on behalf of ‘The Islamic nation’s Religious scholars’, it read: ‘Religious scholars make it unequivocally clear that any soldier and Zionist settler are to be killed, wherever they are found in all Muslim lands, both within and outside of Palestine.’

Association senior official, Saleh al-Raqab, published an article on October 8 called ‘Oh Jihad warriors in Palestine’, in which he wrote: ‘Allah, grant victory to Jihad warriors in Palestine, guide their strikes and gunfire upon the Jews’ throats, stabilize the warriors’ legs and bring forth their stabbing blades into their hearts’…”

Hamas terrorists ordered to kill as many people as possible, target schools in attacks: report

October 16, 2023The Christian Post reports: “Newly uncovered documents reveal that Hamas terrorists were directed to kill as many people as possible, with a specific focus on elementary schools and youth centers. These meticulously rehearsed attacks resulted in a death toll exceeding 1,300 in Israel alone, according to official sources.

Israeli officials say the attacks were not a byproduct of military action but rather a central objective, as can be concluded from the documents recovered from the bodies of dead militants at the sites of the attacks, The Wall Street Journal reported.

Written orders carried by Hamas explicitly directed them to maximize human losses and take hostages, the Journal said, citing one set of orders that specifically targeted the farming community of Alumim, instructing militants to ‘achieve the highest level of human losses.’

Another set of orders focused on Sa’ad, a 670-person collective farming community, with the directive to ‘take control of the kibbutz, kill as many individuals as possible, and capture hostages.’

Details in the recovered documents also indicate that elementary schools and youth centers were among the primary targets…”

Hamas launched unique terror tactic: Livestreaming horrors on victims’ social media

October 18, 2023 The Times of Israel reports: “Hamas seems to have intentionally adopted a new terror tactic during its devastating attack on Israeli communities on October 7 — that of using the social media accounts of their victims to spread fear and confusion among their families and friends as the killings and abductions unfolded.

In a report Tuesday, The New York Times followed multiple instances in which terrorists who broke into homes in towns and kibbutz communities took control of residents’ phones. In some cases, they then livestreamed their abuse of victims. In others, they posted messages or media to their social media accounts or called relatives to taunt them.

In one case, a teenage hostage was filmed by terrorists being forced to walk around homes in his community and calling on neighbors to come out as it was safe, NYT reported.

In another, a family’s ordeal was live-streamed to their Facebook account as parents held at gunpoint attempted to calm their two sobbing children, while the kids asked about an older daughter who had been shot dead in another room…”  (Killing is rewarded in Islam.  Not only do they receive 72 virgins as righteous and martyred godly men, but what even more shocking is they get to choose 70 relatives and friends to go to heaven.  Their plan of winning the lost is a sick one and against God’s plan which is: For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life – John 3:16.)

Netanyahu: Terrorists Burned People Alive; Every Hamas Member Is ‘a Dead Man’; Gantz Invokes Ten Plagues

October 12, 2023Breitbart.com reports: “Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu recounted the horrors of Saturday’s terror attack by the Palestinian terror group Hamas in an address Wednesday evening to his nation introducing his emergency national unity government.

As Breitbart News reported earlier Wednesday, Netanyahu and opposition leader Benny Gantz of the Blue and White Party agreed to form an emergency government of national unity, setting aside political differences until the end of the war. Other opposition parties may follow…

Netanyahu added that every member of Hamas should be considered ‘a dead man.’

Minister of Defense Yoav Gallant also spoke, vowing to ‘wipe Hamas off the face of the earth.’

‘What happened has not happened to the Jewish people since 1945,’ he added. ‘There’s no situation in which you kill Israeli kids and we go about our business.’

Those remarks came as the Israeli Air Force (IAF) hit Gaza on what was called an ‘unprecedented’ scale…

He warned: ‘The reward of our enemies will be blood, fire and pillars of smoke’ — a quote from the Book of Joel (3:3) that is also reference, in Jewish tradition, to the Ten Plagues of the Bible that preceded the liberation of the Israelites from slavery….”  (Prime Minister Netanyahu is correct.  Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing?  The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the Lord, and against his anointed, saying, Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us.  He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the Lord shall have them in derision.  Then shall he speak unto them in his wrath, and vex them in his sore displeasure.  Yet have I set my king upon my holy hill of Zion.  I will declare the decree: the Lord hath said unto me, Thou art my Son; this day have I begotten thee.  Ask of me, and I shall give thee the heathen for thine inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the earth for thy possession.  Thou shalt break them with a rod of iron; thou shalt dash them in pieces like a potter’s vessel.  Be wise now therefore, O ye kings: be instructed, ye judges of the earth. Serve the Lord with fear, and rejoice with trembling.  Kiss the Son, lest he be angry, and ye perish from the way, when his wrath is kindled but a little. Blessed are all they that put their trust in him – Psalm 2:1-12.  See the next report.)

New Israeli unit has one goal: Kill all terrorists involved in massacre

October 23, 2023The Jerusalem Post reports: “In Israel’s ongoing effort to track down all those involved in the brutal terrorist attack that left more than 1,400 Israelis murdered, the Shin Bet (Israel Security Service) has established a new unit named Nili, an acronym in Hebrew for ‘The Eternity of Israel Will Not Lie.’

The unit is dedicated to hunting down and eliminating every individual who played a role in the massacre in the western Negev settlements two weeks ago.

This force was specifically set up to target members of a special commando unit within Hamas’s military wing called Nukhba (‘elite’) who infiltrated Israel, executed mass killings in various villages and IDF outposts, and then returned to the Gaza Strip.

The members of this new organization function independently from other Command and Control units that are focused on neutralizing strike cells and high-ranking terrorists. This particular mission is distinct, with the organization encompassing both field operatives and intelligence personnel…”

Israeli military warns Gazans to relocate south for safety

October 13, 2023The Jerusalem Post reports: “The Israeli military announced on Thursday evening that some 600,000 Palestinians in Gaza should relocate to the enclave’s south within the next 24 hours.

This, according to Reuters and confirmed by military sources, is ahead of an expected ground invasion of the Gaza Strip.

Sources have told the Jerusalem Post multiple times this week that the counter-ground invasion would start sometime on or after Saturday, October 14.

‘The IDF calls on all residents of Gaza City to evacuate their homes, move south for their protection, and settle in the area south of the Gaza River,’ the IDF statement read. 

‘This evacuation is for your personal safety. It will be possible to return to Gaza City after a notification confirming [safety]. Do not approach the border fence with the State of Israel.’…”  (Israel does all that it can to protect civilians – Hamas uses civilians to protect their missiles; placing them next to schools and in residential neighborhoods.  Golda Meir has been quoted as saying: “We can forgive the Arabs for killing our children.  We cannot forgive them for forcing us to kill their children.  We will only have peace with the Arabs when they love their children more than they hate us.”

 Jesus says: …whosoever shall offend one of these little ones that believe in me, it is better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he were cast into the sea – Mark 9:42; and Suffer [allow] little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me: for of such is the kingdom of heaven – Matthew 19:14.  See the next report.)

Israel issues new warnings to Palestinians to evacuate northern Gaza

October 16, 2023SpaceWar.com reports: “Israel on Saturday gave Palestinians living in the northern Gaza Strip a six-hour window to use safe corridors to evacuate the area before an expected ground invasion as the United States urged protection for civilians.

Israel Defense Forces instructed residents to flee to the southern part of the enclave using designated evacuation corridors between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. in a message posted to social media in Arabic.

‘If you care about yourself and your loved ones, go south as instructed,’ the IDF wrote. ‘Rest assured that Hamas leaders have taken care of themselves and are taking cover from strikes in the region.’

Israel forces are preparing for the ‘next stages’ of the war and will attack the Hamas rulers of the Gaza enclave ‘with great force,’ IDF spokesman Rear Adm. Daniel Hagari said Saturday at a press briefing, again urging Palestinian civilians to flee region as the war entered its eighth day.

The United Nations reported that more than 400,000 Palestinians have already fled northern Gaza in the wake of a massive Israeli aerial bombardment in retaliation for last week’s unprecedented surprise attack by Hamas which killed more than 1,300 Israelis…”

Iran’s Khamenei Threatens Israel with ‘Greater Disaster’ if It Defends Itself from Terror

October 11, 2023Breitbart.com reports: “Speaking at a graduation ceremony for Iranian military cadets on Tuesday, Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei described the brutal Hamas terrorist attack on Saturday as an ‘irreparable defeat’ for Israel.

He blamed the Israelis for bringing rape and murder upon themselves.

‘The cause of this destructive storm was the continuous brutality and ferocity of the fake usurper regime against the Palestinian nation,’ Khamenei said, as reported by Iran’s Tasnim news agency…

Khamenei took his bluster to Twitter on Tuesday morning, only to have an amusing encounter with the Israelis, who let him know that his regime is very much on their minds as they set about neutralizing Hamas and its sponsors.

‘The heads of the Zionist regime and their backers should know that the massacre and mass murder of the people of Gaza will cause a larger calamity to come upon them,’ Khamenei wrote.

‘It’s easy to be brave when you’re hiding behind a keyboard,’ the State of Israel’s official Twitter account responded. ‘You and your Hamas friends will regret your barbaric actions very soon.’…”  (Iran will be blotted out when Russia, China, and Islamic nations fight Israel and her allies during Armageddon – Revelation 16:16.  The battle is described in Ezekiel 39:1 – 5: …thou son of man, prophesy against Gog, and say, Thus saith the Lord God; Behold, I am against thee, O Gog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal:  And I will turn thee back, and leave but the sixth part of thee, and will cause thee to come up from the north parts, and will bring thee upon the mountains of Israel: And I will smite thy bow out of thy left hand, and will cause thine arrows to fall out of thy right hand. Thou shalt fall upon the mountains of Israel, thou, and all thy bands, and the people that is with thee: I will give thee unto the ravenous birds of every sort, and to the beasts of the field to be devoured… Soon the war of wars will arrive from the North and East [Russia and China] – Daniel 11:44.  The battle is described in Ezekiel 38:1 – 5: …the word of the Lord came unto me, saying,   Son of man, set thy face against Gog, the land of Magog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal, and prophesy against him, And say, Thus saith the Lord God; Behold, I am against thee, O Gog, the chief [Russian] prince of Meshech and Tubal: [Moscow and Tubal, or Tubalsk – Southwest of the Russian capital]:  And I will turn thee back, and put hooks into thy jaws, and I will bring thee forth, and all thine army, horses and horsemen, all of them clothed with all sorts of armour, even a great company with bucklers and shields, all of them handling swords:  Persia, Ethiopia, and Libya with them; all of them with shield and helmet.)

Nasrallah, senior Hamas and PIJ leaders talk of achieving ‘victory’ over Israel

October 25, 2023The Times of Israel reports: “The leader of Lebanon’s Hezbollah held talks on Wednesday with senior Hamas and Palestinian Islamic Jihad figures in a key meeting of the region’s top three anti-Israel terror groups amid the war raging in Gaza.

A brief statement following the meeting said that Hezbollah’s leader Hassan Nasrallah agreed with Hamas’s Saleh al-Arouri and Islamic Jihad’s leader Ziad al-Nakhaleh on the next steps that the three — along with other Iran-backed, non-state actors — should take at this ‘sensitive stage.’

Nasrallah is known as a reclusive leader who rarely ventures beyond the confines of Hezbollah’s fortified zones in south Lebanon, where the Iranian-backed jihadi group has an extensive network of underground bunkers.

Their goal, according to the statement that was carried on Hezbollah-run and Lebanese state media, was to achieve ‘a real victory for the resistance in Gaza and Palestine’ and halt Israel’s ‘treacherous and brutal aggression against our oppressed and steadfast people in Gaza and the West Bank.’…”  (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 stars 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.)
