JPost:
The Church of the Nativity in Bethlehem on Friday became the first World Heritage Site to be listed under the name of Palestine.

Its approval, by a 13 to 6 vote with two abstentions, marks the second victory in less than a year for the Palestinian Authority’s pursuit of unilateral statehood at the UN Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization.

Opinion:
The Church that marks the birthplace of Jesus Christ is an Arab Heritage site,***!!!!!????

Excuse my language. Despite the 190 nation roster, the US contributes 22% of the UN’s $5 billion budget or over 2 billion per year. The UN is always there when they need us.

Despite President Obama’s assertion that the US is not a Christian nation any longer (76%) and that we have a large Muslim population (2%), with a little over (2.5%) or 7 million Jews, the UN never misses an opportunity to advance the so-called Palestinian cause at the peril of both the US and Israel.

How ’bout we save a few billion per year and throw the UN out of the US? Tehran, maybe?

The Blaze:
“Leaders of the 17-nation eurozone announced on Friday a plan to rescue their failing banks with cash normally reserved for fledgling governments. When the “recapitalization” (i.e. bailout) plan was unveiled, markets responded very, very well.

However, despite the positive market reaction, there is one veteran businessman who thinks the deal is a big mistake. In fact, he thinks it’s only making things worse. According to Jim Rogers, Quantum Fund co-founder, free market advocate, author, and regular lecturer of finance at the Columbia University Graduate School of Business, the EU’s decision to recapitalize its banks won’t do anything to fight off the oncoming “financial Armageddon.”

Free Republic:
VATICAN CITY – “The Vatican has formally proposed a way to reconcile with a breakaway group of ultra-traditionalist Catholics in a final bid to end a quarter-century of schism, offering it a special legal status in the church currently enjoyed only by the conservative Opus Dei movement.
The Vatican said Thursday it had proposed making the Society of St. Pius X a “personal prelature” — akin to a diocese without borders.”

Opinion:
1. In 2009, Pope Benedict made a move to bring the group back into the fold by removing the excommunications of the four bishops.

2. Benedict has allowed greater use of the pre-Vatican ii (Latin Mass), which the SSPX celebrate.

3. Richard Williamson, one of the excommunicated SSPX bishops, made headlines that same year when he denied the full extent of the Holocaust in a television interview broadcast on the same day his excommunication was lifted.

4. SSPX websites, publications and representatives have charged contemporary Jews with deicide (killing Jesus Christ), have endorsed the Protocols of the Elders of Zion (which accuses Jews of harboring a plan for global domination), and have claimed that there is factual basis for the “blood libel” (that Jews murder children to use their blood in rituals).

5. Members of the Jewish community are watching the result of these talks with intense interest.

Contrast between two Popes:


The Vatican has confirmed that Pope Benedict XVI has made an offer of reconciliation to the Society of St. Pius X (SSPX), and the Vatican has prepared a document that would establish a personal prelature for the traditionalist group. (Catholic World View)

Pope John Paul II, blessed the Jewish people calling the Shoah (Holocaust) the Golgatha (place where Christ was crucified): “Auschwitz, along with so many other concentration camps, remains the
horribly eloquent symbol of the effects of totalitarianism. It is our duty to
make a pilgrimage to these places, in mind and heart, on this 50th anniversary.
As I said at the Mass celebrated in 1979 at Brzezinka near Auschwitz: ‘I
kneel at this Golgotha of the modern 
world.‘ 

The Abrahamic Covenant that God made as an everlasting promise to Abraham and his descendants is on display for all to see:
Genesis 12:3 “I will bless those who bless you and curse those who curse you.”

No scandal reached to Pope John Paul II, and he died with the dignity of his position intact.

Pope Benedict, however, is mired in three scandals:

March 2010- The pedophilia scandal has reached Pope Benedict as accusations of having moved sixty-two year-old Pastor Peter H., who had been providing pastoral care at the church for the past two years and had been tried and convicted of sexual abuse in 1986. Not only had this conviction been kept secret, but the priest’s superior at one time – Joseph Ratzinger, the former Archbishop of Munich who is today better known as Pope Benedict XVI – had knowingly moved this known pedophile from parish to parish.

On  May 28, 2012 – A new  Vatican scandal deepened  when the pope’s butler, arrested for allegedly releasing confidential documents. The investigation is ongoing.

On June 23, 2012- The Wall Street Journal ran a story of the first Catholic Church official, Msgr. William Lyon, who was tried and found guilty of the crime of child endangerment for moving a priest that had been accused of improper contact with minor boys, opening up other Church officials to possible prosecution.

Front Page Mag:
“This week, President Obama’s Egyptian Revolution bore its first fruit: the
election of Muslim Brotherhood President Mohammed Mursi. Mursi, of course, is
the same fellow who stated last month,

The Koran is our constitution, the
Prophet is our leader, jihad is our path and death in the name of Allah is our
goal. Today we can establish Sharia law because our nation will acquire
well-being only with Islam and Sharia. The Muslim Brothers and the Freedom and
Justice Party will be the conductors of these goals.”

Rallies for Mursi have
included calls to make Jerusalem the capital of Egypt, and songs and chants
about how his supporters are all affiliated with Hamas.”

Opinion:
So how does one make lemonade out of this lemon?
Let’s take a look:

1. We know from the apostle Paul that in the last days “perilous times will come” (2Timothy 3:1).

2. We know from the prophet Asaph that Egypt will part of the Psalm 83 invaders of Israel (Psalm 83:6).

3. We know from the prophet Daniel that Egypt will be the King of the South in the final tribulation war of Armageddon (Daniel 11:40).

4. The apostle Mark tells us that after the tribulation “… they will see the Son of Man coming in the clouds with great power and glory. And then He will send His angels, and gather together His elect from the four winds, from the farthest part of earth to the farthest part of heaven” (Mark 13:26-27).

5. John the Revelator gives us the best part: “Then I, John,  saw the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.  And I heard a loud voice from heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and He will dwell with them, and they shall be His people. God Himself will be with them and be their God.  And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away” (Revelation 21:2-4).

Can I get an Amen?

Obamacare's Hidden Taxes

Investors Business Daily Op-Ed:
“Taxation: The high bench has confirmed that ObamaCare’s individual mandate is a massive tax on the American middle class. But let’s not forget the 20 other new taxes that are embedded in the law.

Though President Obama never sold it as a tax hike, the Supreme Court ruled the mandate is exactly that. Unfortunately, the majority argued it’s legal under Congress’ taxing authority. Forcing citizens to buy health insurance is absolutely not a tax increase,” Obama insisted in 2009.”
