JPost:
Netanyahu noted that Hamas is getting stronger in Egypt and has moved to run its operations from Syria to Egypt following anti-Assad uprisings there. “Egypt has had difficulties exercising its sovereignty over Sinai. We saw this in the two gas pipe explosions that occurred there,” Netanyahu said. “What’s happening in Sinai is that global terrorist organizations are meddling there and their presence is increasing because of the connection between Sinai and Gaza.”

Opinion:
The Sinai is strategically located as a desert buffer to the south. Israel’s buffer on the north is the Golan Heights, on the east the Jordan River and to the West is the Mediterranean sea. Going back to the pre-1967 borders would eliminate these God-made protective buffers which is exactly what Israel’s growing list of enemies want.

It is easier to count Israel’s friends than enemies. Go ahead, try and guess who their friends are. No friend would want a friend to be open to attack, so that eliminates the US. A friendly nation would put their embassy in their friend’s capital, not the US. A friend would stand up for a friend and never let the friend’s capital and holiest sites be cut in two pieces, again not the US. In fact the only friend of Israel that easily comes to mind is Canada.  Ecclesiastes 4:9-10  says “Two are better than one, Because they have a good reward for their labor. For if they fall, one will lift up his companion. But woe to him who is alone when he falls, For he has no one to help him up.”

 After September’s UN vote on Palestinian statehood, Israel’s friends and enemies will be obvious.

Bloomberg News:
Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper made a surprise stop in Afghanistan to mark the end of the country’s decade-long military mission and pay tribute to fallen soldiers. Harper commented to Canada’s troops “As the combat mission here in Kandahar draws to a close, and Canadian boots no longer tread this dusty ground, always remember that we Canadians do not dream of empire, we do not covet what other nations possess and we do not make war to advance selfish or cynical ends.”

Opinion:
Canada anyone?

Haaretz:
“Diplomats involved in Middle East discussions at the G8 summit said Canada had insisted that no mention of Israel’s pre-1967 borders be made in the leaders’ final communique, even though most of the other leaders wanted a mention. The Canadians were really very adamant, even though Obama expressly referred to 1967 borders in his speech last week (May 19).”

Opinion:
Thank God for the Prime Minister of Canada, Stephen Harper. At least one world leader has the courage to stand up for Israel. He and the Canadian people will be blessed. But what about the US and God’s promises in Genesis 12:3?
 
Few nations in history have experienced God’s blessing like the US. “In 1993, the United States burdened itself with Jerusalem when it forced Israel into the land for peace formula formalized in the Oslo Accords. At the time, the United States was at the zenith of its power, wealth and international prestige. The US had just led the largest international alliance since World War II in a successful war against Iraq to secure the liberation of Kuwait, winning the Cold War in the process. By 2000, Israel had lost everything it had gained in the five preceding wars and was prepared to trade away Jerusalem when Yasser Arafat invoked a new uprising. The following year, the United States was attacked by the forces of radical Islam and has been steadily cut into pieces since.” Omega Letter March 29, 2010

Fast forward to May 2011 and strap yourself in. Economically, the US dollar is crumbling and there is a global outcry for a replacement of it as the world’s reserve currency. The Federal Reserve is on the second round of QE or buying back our own debt, pumping fiat money into banks to create the illusion of a strong stock market. Inflation statistics are created by the government to calm fears but the real inflation figures are 4 times higher than reported. Gas is near $4.00 per gallon. We are officially out of money with record deficit spending as the government hit the debt ceiling in May. We are now borrowing from federal pensions to pay the government’s bills while Congress decides if there is any way to cut spending. Our military is stretched, our equipment and fighter jets are aging and the government is planning to slash defense spending. Oh, did I mention that Iran is building the bomb and interfering throughout the ME at will. One more, Egypt is dissolving into an Islamist state while all of America’s traditional alliances are crumbling before our eyes.

The fate of the nations in the last days is dependent on how they treat Israel. Canada’s government is standing up for Israel while the US government is not. “I will gather all the nations and bring them down to the valley of Jehoshaphat, then I will enter into judgment with them there on behalf of my people and my inheritance, Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations, and they have divided up my land” Joel 3:2

The speech that will divide that land was given on May 19. Pass the aspirin.

NewsMax, Memorial Day Report:
In an exclusive Newsmax interview, SEAL Team Six veteran and author Howard Wasdin says Americans should reflect this Memorial Day on the incredible sacrifice of the nation’s finest warriors. It was that courage, training and America’s “go-it-alone” spirit that made the death of Osama bin Laden possible.

  A Day of Rememberance

It is with a great sense of thankfulness that we can report a news event that favors prayer for our military veterans in a day of remembrance for those who have died in our nation’s service. The Christian community can celebrate the position of a Federal judge that refused to bar a Houston pastor from invoking Jesus Christ in a Memorial Day prayer. Judge Lynn Hughs (picture below) said “The Constitution does not confide to the government the authority to compel emptiness in a prayer, where a prayer belongs.” The judge noted that the Rev. Scott Rainey, the lead pastor of the Living Word Church of the Nazarene, was likely to prevail on his claims should the case reach trial. It should come as no surprise that the judge was appointed by Ronald Reagan in 1985. Pictured right is the tomb of the Unknowns.

                                         SUNDAY POST

World Net Daily:
“Koenig,(World Watch Daily), points out that nine of the ten costliest insurance events in U.S. history followed dramatic calls by U.S. officials for Israel to make land concessions in bids for peace with its neighbors. He points out with startling detail how six of the seven costliest hurricanes in U.S. history followed such events. He points out how three of the four largest tornado outbreaks in U.S. history followed such developments.”

Fact:
The Gaza expulsion plan deadline, conceived by then US President George W. Bush and Ariel Sharon, was August 15, 2005. The eviction of all Israeli residents, demolition of the residential buildings and evacuation of associated security personnel from the Gaza Strip was completed by September 12, 2005. Hurricane Katrina, the deadliest in US history hit the US on August 23, 2005. The following year, Sharon went into a coma and the Bush presidency suffered widespread criticism for his handling of Katrina and lost the majority in Congress in 2006.

Opinion:
On May 19, President Obama made an historic speech, and the 1967 borders are now out on the table. He put them out there and despite the daily spin of the media denying that he was the first to do so, a return to the ’67 borders is now in the global consciousness. As a result, the world is being desensitized to this deadly proposition and seemingly unaware of God’s warnings. On May 22, the Joplin tornado literally cut the city in two, and 2011 is named the deadliest year for tornadoes since 1953.

Rabbi Jonathan Bernis:
Last summer we attended a Last Days Conference, led by Rabbi Jonathan Bernis, which included several other guest speakers. The audience, comprised of Christians and Messianic Jews, was inspired by what was heard that day. Yeshua was celebrated, and no one wanted the conference to end. I encourage you to visit Rabbi Bernis website http://www.jewishvoice.com/ and follow his ministry. This blog has done many posts on the speech but the following five minute video by Rabbi Bernis sums it up in the way that only a Jewish follower of Jesus Christ can. Click here:

WSJ Op-Ed:
“Were Assad to fall, a key link in Iran’s strategic chain across the region would be broken. While Iran could possibly find work-arounds to supply Hezbollah, such as by sea or air, it would lose both strategic depth and an eager ally. Furthermore, if protesters in Syria were to inspire Iran’s own democracy activists to redouble their efforts, the Iranian regime would find itself in serious peril. Thus it is unsurprising that it has dispatched the Quds Force to help Assad stop the Arab Spring at his doorstep.”

Opinion:
Iran produces 3.5 million barrels per day and at roughly 100.00 per barrel provides enough  income to supply both Hezbollah, Hamas, Syria and rogue terrorists groups with arms. Bashar Assad is really important to Iran. According to the US Institute for Peace “For Iran, the ouster of President Bashar Assad in Syria would arguably be the most significant setback since the end of its eight-year war with Iraq in 1988 and possibly even since its 1979 revolution. Regime change would be a major blow for both Iran’s ideological and foreign policy goals.” 

Syria and its capital, Damascus, have an appointment with Bible prophecy. Isaiah 17:1 “ Behold, Damascus will cease from being a city, And it will be a ruinous heap.” Isaiah 17:14 says it will happen overnight.
