The Times Of Israel: “Exactly how bad are Israel-US relations today? Who the Hellfire knows. What is clear is that two weeks after the revelation that the US had added an additional level of scrutiny to resupplying the IDF with weapons, business was anything but usual regarding the military-to-military relationship upon which Israel relies.

Washington has, in fact, been extremely closed-lipped about the Hellfires.

Asked about the Hellfires almost two weeks ago, State Department Deputy Spokesperson Marie Harf said that “we generally don’t talk about specific deliveries after they’re requested and before they’re delivered, but I will say that things are being — things that have been requested from Israel are — we’re taking a little bit of additional care now given the situation, and if there were requests for such missiles, that would fall under that.”

Opinion: Israel is in a tense ceasefire in the south, while trying to stop Al Qaeda’s Nusra Front fighters and its Sinai arm (Ansar Beit Al-Madis) in the north, who just happen to be tied into Hamas in the south.

At last count, there are over 30 al Qaeda factions operating all around Israel.

The US, Jordan, and Israel are quietly backing the mixed bag of Syrian rebel factions which yesterday seized control of the Syrian side of the Quneitra crossing, the only transit point between Israeli and Syrian Golan.

With all that going on, the US is dithering, a common occurrence these past years, on sending Hellfire missiles.

It is no wonder that terror leaders are so arrogant.

golanThe Jerusalem Post: “With the Nusra Front, al-Qaida’s Syria wing, now reportedly in control of the Quneitra crossing between Syria and Israel on the Golan Heights, Israel must be very clear about its red lines, former National Security Council head Ya’akov Amidror said Wednesday.

“As in the previous battles between the Assad regime and the rebels, we are not in position to determine the fight or the processes in Syria,” Amidror said in a conference call organized by The Israel Project.

But, he added, “We should be very clear about our red lines: no one will cross the border, and if someone will try, we will kill him.”

Likewise, he said, Jerusalem needs to make it clear that “if someone will use rockets or artillery toward Israel, our retaliation will be immediate, and it doesn’t matter if it will be the Syrian regular army or the rebels.”

Opinion: Now that there is a temporary calm in the south – there is trouble in the north. Al Nusra founded in 2012,  is a branch of al-Qaeda/Muslim Brotherhood operating in Syria and Lebanon.  Prior to the rise of ISIS, Al Nusra was known as the most aggressive and successful terror group in the area.

In recent months Al Nusra has been weakened by the ISIS advance into Syria, and appears to be turning their attention towards attacking Israel by taking control of the Golan Heights.

Having been under Israeli control since the 1967 war, the Golan would give Al Nusra a clear a rocket shot at Tel Aviv and control of the eastern shore of the Sea of Galilee – Israel’s main source of fresh water.

Don’t expect that to happen without Israel mounting a ferocious defense.

hm1YNet NewsHamas leader asserts Obama has moral responsibility to pressure Israel to halt fire in Gaza; claims he is not responsible for rocket fire as he does not interfere in military affairs.

“You as the leader of the most powerful state in the world, I ask you to call (on) Israel to stop its aggression on Gaza — and to lift the siege and open the cross borders and to rebuild Gaza.”

The Hamas political leader told Yahoo that Obama had a moral responsibility to pressure Israel to halt fire in Gaza, and said Hamas on its part was “ready for a ceasefire.”

Opinion: It is little wonder that the secular world is confused.  Mashal blames Israel for rocket attacks/holocaust and Abbas blames Israel for the occupation.

If Hamas stopped shooting rockets, there would be no war; if the occupation were to end, Hamas and the PA would have to leave Israel.

But it just may be a rather brilliant deception.

According to a 2009 Barna poll

  • only 9% of all American adults have a Biblical worldview
  • Among those who call themselves born-again Christians, only 19% have a Biblical worldview
  • Among young American adults (ages 18 to 23) only .5 of 1% have a Biblical worldview
  • Half of Protestant pastors have a Biblical world view

Without the Bible’s guidelines, the secular world has no understanding of either the origins of this conflict or the ultimate resolution.

It began with an ancient hatred Genesis 27:41

It will have a temporary end Daniel 9:29

It will have a permanent end Zechariah 14:4, Revelation 20:1-2
