kerry-in-cairoFront Page Mag: “The objective here is to get the fastest possible ceasefire. That doesn’t mean that it’s going to be fast, and it certainly doesn’t mean it’s going to be easy, but that’s the goal,” a senior US official travelling with Kerry was quoted by AFP as saying on condition of anonymity.

Kerry is even throwing in additional money for Gaza to help seal the deal. On top of the half a billion dollars that the Obama administration is continuing to send to the Palestinian “unity” government in which Hamas is a partner, Kerry has just offered a $47 million bribe in the form of so-called “humanitarian” aid for Gaza.”

Opinion: Israel is being pulled back. You’d think that the US would at least support neutralizing the vast tunnel network in which Hamas’ political and military commanders are said to be hiding. But no, the US objective is to end the war under a phony humanitarian banner.

Here is what Israel is up against:

  • Iran: The largest financier and supplier of rockets to Hamas
  • Muslim Brotherhood: Hamas, al Qaeda and Islamic Jihad make up the Brotherhood military wing
  • Turkey: Financier of Hamas, sponsored the Mavi Marmara incident
  • Qatar: Financial supporter of Hamas, Al Nusra and ISIS
  • USA: Financier of Unity government of which Hamas is a part

While that sounds like impossible odds, the Creator of the universe always provides protection for such a time as this.

“Behold, He who keeps Israel Shall neither slumber nor sleep” Psalm 121:4.

Investors Business Daily Op-Ed: “As al-Qaida threatens to blow up U.S. planes and the U.S. Open in New York, the president is cutting loose hardcore al-Qaida terrorists from Gitmo through a secretive parole board.

Set up under a little-known executive order, the Periodic Review Board has already cleared for release detainees who were classified “continuing significant threats” and unreleasable. It maintains that they’re no longer dangerous because they’ve taken up yoga and want go home and be “milk and honey” farmers. It actually finds their stories “credible.”

Osama bin Laden’s ex-bodyguards are among the al-Qaida operatives with their bags packed and ready to go.

And now, defense lawyers are using Obama’s recent release of five top Taliban commanders as legal precedent for releasing even more dangerous al-Qaida detainees. As one lawyer boasted, the parole board, whose members include State and Justice department officials, is “predisposed” to their approval.

According to declassified documents, the board is considering repatriating, for example, al-Qaida assassin Muhammad Murdi Issa al-Zahrani to Saudi Arabia, where he’ll no doubt rejoin the jihad against the U.S. with other repatriated Saudi terrorists.

“During his time in Afghanistan,” the intelligence dossier on al-Zahrani warns, he “almost certainly cultivated direct relationships with numerous terrorists leaders who could provide him avenues to re-engage.”

Freeing him would be nuts. Only last month, his government-appointed rep argued, somewhat reasonably, that he no longer meets the threshold for a high-risk detainee. That’s because Obama lowered the bar for what’s considered high-risk when he agreed in May to repatriate the Taliban Five to Qatar, which he entrusted with “appropriate security measures.”

“We have demonstrated that Mr. Al-Zahrani represents a lower threat than the (Taliban) detainees that have been released,” his defense team wrote the board, “and therefore does not rise to the standard for ‘continuing significant threat’” to U.S. security.

When the commander in chief vouched that national security “would not be compromised” by the release of Taliban leaders, he created a legal loophole through which some 40 remaining, uncharged Gitmo detainees too dangerous to release can wiggle.

Obama had to have known that he was creating a new precedent for release. And now his hand-picked parole board is suddenly taking a new look at these cases.

If Obama thinks that emptying Gitmo of al-Qaida is the way to end the war on terror, he’s sadly mistaken. He’s only restarting it.

RT: “Unnamed US officials are telling Associated Press that their intelligence suggests Malaysia plane shot down by anti-Kiev militia, no link to Russia found.

Officials believe that the passenger aircraft was intercepted by an SA-11 surface-to-air missile, which was fired by Ukrainian  militia members.”

Opinion: President Obama attended five fund raisers and was not available for comment as the White House apparently decided, without a shred of evidence, that this minor incident was an accident and not all that important after all.

Wow, I sure feel better now … all aboard!

jonBusiness Insider: “Last week’s sketch was a satirical news segment in which Stewart pointed out the disproportionate amount of strength on Israel’s side against Gaza in the recent attacks, which has now claimed hundreds of lives.

“Both sides are engaging in aerial bombardment, but one side appears to be bomb-better at it,” said Stewart. The comedy talk show host went on to point out that Israel has the Iron Dome, an anti-missile defense system, and an app that warns users of incoming missiles. How are the residents of Gaza warned, according to Stewart?

“So the Israeli military warns Gaza residents of imminent bombing…with a smaller warning bombing! An amuse-boom, if you will.”

One of the most vocal critics of the segment was conservative (and Jewish) radio host Mark Levin, who, according to Politico, called Stewart a “knee-jerk idiot” and “self-hating Jew” (Stewart is also Jewish).”

Opinion: Self-loathing of one’s Jewish blood is what our book Antichrist: The Search For Amalek is about.

Excerpt:  ”It was Amalek, who was part Jewish, who was first to draw Jewish blood in the Exodus. And it was Amalek’s self-loathing of that blood that the LORD has sworn to avenge in every generation,” Exodus 17:16.

One thousand years later, the psalmist wrote “They have said, “Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation, That the name of Israel may be remembered no more” Psalm 83:4.

That verse was written by a Jewish temple priest about a future alliance of Israel’s ancient foes: Edomites and Amalekites.

The hatred playing out on the front pages today between Israel and Hamas has its roots in the twins, Jacob and Esau. Palestinians are from an Abrahamic Jewish/Gentile bloodline that they loathe.

But God called both Jew and Palestinian brothers:

Obadiah 1:15 “For violence against your brother Jacob, Shame shall cover you” Obadiah was not speaking to Esau but his descendants since Obadiah was written some 1500 years after Esau.

In Amalek, we found the same indwelling evil blood of his grandfather Esau, which will prevail in the final Man of Sin.

This hatred that started 4000 years ago will continue until the promise to Jacob is fulfilled:

May God give you heaven’s dew and earth’s rich- ness—an abundance of grain and new wine. May nations serve you and peoples bow down to you. Be lord over your brothers, and may the sons of your mother bow down to you. May those who curse you be cursed and those who bless you be blessed” (Gen. 27:28–29 NIV).

That will happen with the return of Jesus Christ.

World Net Daily: “JERUSALEM – Officials in Jerusalem are quietly wondering whether the Federal  Aviation Administration’s prohibition on U.S. flights to Tel Aviv is partially a  tactic to pressure Israel into a cease-fire.

The FAA’s decision will likely impact the Israeli economy. The action, while  temporary, tarnishes Israel’s image around the world, putting the Jewish state,  at least for one day, on par with Third World countries where U.S. flights are  banned, including Ethiopia, North Korea, Iraq, Somalia and Libya.

Even if U.S. flights resume after 24 hours, the FAA decision sets the  precedent for more flight bans in the coming days in response to any rockets  hitting near the airport.”

Opinion: I’m not sure I ever wanted to go to Israel more than right now – today.

EPA04263560382193_jpg_JUMYNet News: “We are witnessing unnecessary and irritating bloodshed. It could have ended long ago. It can be ended, maybe, just maybe, as soon as tomorrow.

When Israel embarks on a battle of this kind, it is waging a double battle: One on the ground, the other over the global public opinion. Israel should know that it will not succeed on the ground without succeeding on the public opinion front. The world is not interested in the mass murder committed by ISISI, as we speak, in Syria. Nor is it interested in the abuse of Christians in Musul. The world is only interested in Gaza, because that’s where the cameras are.

So Israel must make a move: It must accept Hamas’ conditions, add to them, and announce its agreement to a ceasefire, in exchange for the Strip’s demilitarization by an international force.”

Opinion: And there you go. The Israeli government knows that they cannot win the war of public opinion. After Inquisitions, Pogroms and Holocausts over thousands of years, Jews know what the outcome will be … this time.

But some day, possibly tomorrow, all this will change. Someday Hamas or some other Muslim Brotherhood terror group will not stop and the first prophetic war of the last days will commence.

We don’t know for sure if Christians will be here for Psalm 83. I have always hoped we would be, since it would give us a chance to warn those who we care about.

Our job is to watch.

Zero Hedge: “As the world slowly turns against US Dollar hegemony, it appears the BRICS are pressing to fill any gaps. Having created the BRICS Bank “alternate to the West-controlled IMF or World Bank,” Xinhua reports that Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov believes the BRICS mechanism has been fully developed and can now transform into a political alliance to “reform the international financial system.”

Opinion: Notice the guy in the middle. That would be Czar Putin who has the motivation to dethrone the dollar. Holding his left hand is Xi Jinping, president of China.

Together they signed the energy deal of the century in May. The 30-year agreement will provide China with over $400 billion dollars’ worth of natural gas.

What is not being outwardly discussed in the mainstream press is that this trade agreement is the latest to bypass the US dollar. China and Russia essentially agreed to pay each other in their domestic currencies, furthering initiatives by the BRICS — Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa — to diminish the international role of the dollar.

Daniel 5:13-30 says it best “Mene, Mene, Tekel, Upharsin”
