JPost: “In a huge blow to Israel, Dutch Foreign Minister Bert Koenders announced Thursday that calls to boycott the Jewish state fall within the limits of free speech, undermining intensive Israeli diplomatic efforts to sway European capitals to outlaw the Boycott, Sanctions and Divestment Movement.”

Statements or meetings concerning BDS are protected by freedom of expression and freedom of assembly, as enshrined in the Dutch Constitution and the European Convention on Human Rights,” Koenders said Thursday during a debate on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict at the Dutch parliament’s Foreign Affairs Committee in  the Hague.

He added that the Dutch government has explained to Israel that it opposes any boycott against it, but that BDS endorsement is a free speech issue. Sweden recently made a similar declaration.”

Opinion: In a response to our post on world leaders being rattled by Donald Trump’s candidacy, one off our readers, Shelly, sent in a quote from Benjamin Franklin that makes the case against labeling BDS as hate speech.

“Whoever would overthrow the liberty of a nation must begin by subduing the freeness of speech.”

BDS is the essence of anti-Semitism. It wants to destroy Israel economically and literally starve it out of existence. I may find it repugnant but it is free speech.

In recent weeks the Attorney General of the United States has said she is considering legal action against:

  • Anti-transgender speech
  • Speech against Muslims
  • Climate change deniers

While I am convinced that the government of a future world dictator as described by Daniel 8:23-26 will quickly eliminate freedom of speech, we need to hang on to it as long as we can.

Arutz Sheva: The World Health Organization (WHO) called for an investigation into alleged abuses of “mental, physical and environmental health” rights by Israel, the only country singled out during the U.N. agency’s annual assembly in Geneva.

The motion was co-sponsored by the Arab Group of States and the Palestinian delegation, and it commissioned a WHO delegation to investigate and report on “the health conditions in the occupied Palestinian territory” and “the occupied Syrian Golan.”

France, Germany and the United Kingdom were among the 107 countries that voted for the proposal. Eight countries – the United States, Canada, Australia, Paraguay, Guatemala, Micronesia and Papua New Guinea – voted against the resolution.

Opinion: Since its creation in 2006, the UNHRC  has issued more resolutions condemning Israel than on the rest of the world combined.

In the years 1947 to 1989, the General Assembly passed a total of 690 resolutions (full or partial). Of these, 429 were against the Israeli position while only 56 were against Arab positions.

Israel has been the subject of aggressive wars in 1948, 1967 and 1973 and the victim of countless terrorist attacks; the Security Council and the General Assembly have never once censured its assailants.

Israel has never been invited to sit on the UNHRC. Saudi Arabia, Lebanon and Pakistan have.

The terror group Hamas spends $140,000,000 per year building attack tunnels, while the Palestinian territory decays from raw sewage:

Breaking Israel News: “Judaism holds that a name is a powerful aspect of a person’s identity. Gematria, a method of Hebrew numerology, is commonly used as a method to understand how one fits into the divine plan. A glimpse into what numerologists have said about US President Barack Obama may reveal some uncomfortable truths, or simply confirm what we already suspect.

Gematria is the practice of assigning each Hebrew letter a numerical value. Rabbis teach that calculations of the Gematria of Hebrew names and words reveal hidden layers of meaning by linking together words and phrases of similar or identical numbers.

Torah scholars Joel Gallis and Dr. Robert Wolf, who taught the Bible for almost two decades, are experts in making connections through numerology. They wrote extensively about Obama in their blog, Redemption 5768, during Obama’s first term, and many of their conclusions are still quoted by Jewish thinkers today.”

Opinion: If you are reading this then Editor didn’t hit the delete button (which she does from time to time).

In our BP 101 study, Chapter 2 is about Biblical numbers as they relate to God’s plan. It does not, however, go into the meaning of each letter numerically.

Normally I would pass on a story like this, not because I don’t find it interesting, but because I have no way of proving that an Assyrian-Babylonian-Greek system of code and numerology adopted into Jewish culture is really Biblical.

BIN published a similar post on May 16 (here) that gave the Gematria of Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton, and Bernie Sanders.

Just for fun, here are the findings:

The Gematria for Bernie Sanders’ name (636) also hints at one of his character traits. It is equal to  וַיֵּלְכוּ אַחֲרֵי אֱלֹהִים אֲחֵרִים (“And they went after other gods”).

The Gematria of Donald Trump points to one of his traits is (424) is the equivalent of כְּמוֹ-נָחָשׁ like a snake which  is also remarkable to note that (424) is the Gematria of “Messiah for the House of David” (משיח בן דוד). What do you get when you combine Messiah and snake?

The Gematria of  Barack Hussein Obama (בּרק חוסיין אובּאמה) 501, is equal to the word ( יִּשְׁמְעֵאלִּים)  Ishmaelites or as Genesis 16:12 says: “A wild ass of a man”.

The Gematria of Hillary (הילרי), Rodham (רודהם), and Clinton, (קלינטון) 255 is equal to the word for a female from the nation of (עמלקיה) Amalek.

After spending three years researching the movement of the bloodline of Esau and his grandson Amalek, the idea never occurred to me that Amalek could well be a female (Exodus 17:16).
