JPost: “According to the comptroller report, there are several significant defects regarding preparations in the fields of physical protection, early warning systems and the evacuation of the population, which would increase the risk of civilian lives during a war.

In addition, there has been increased criticism of shortcomings in the coordination between the various government bodies which deal with the home front, including the Defense Ministry, the IDF and the National Security Council.”

Opinion: “Let us take for ourselves the pastures of God for a possession.” Psalm 83:12

It’s about the land. The same land that God promised to Abraham as an everlasting possession. The land that would normally be given to the first-born son but was not, because Ishmael was a child born of the flesh.

“Now we, brethren, as Isaac was, are children of promise. But, as he who was born according to the flesh then persecuted him who was born according to the Spirit, even so it is now” Galatians 4:28-29.

The son of promise, Isaac, would be given the title deed to all the land and all the possessions of a wealthy father, explaining the prophecy about Ishmael found in Genesis 16:12:

He shall be a wild man; His hand shall be against every man, And every man’s hand against him. And he shall dwell in the presence of all his brethren.” 

After Isaac died at 180 years, the land was given to the second son again: Esau sold his inheritance for a bowl of soup (Genesis 25:29-33), and Jacob, whom God called Israel, became the rightful owner of the land.

The 3000 year old prophecy of Psalm 83 describes a war to be waged by Israel’s neighbors over that same land. That the exact alignment of nations has never attacked Israel is important since fulfilled prophecy is always perfect.

Both Ishmael’s descendants and Esau’s descendants make up the invasion force.

That the prophecy of a temple priest in 1000 BC was able to name each nation that would be so hostile against Israel thousands of years into the future, should get our attention.

Front Page Mag: Turkey’s president Recep Tayyip Erdogan is a desperate man. He is faced with turmoil at home and abroad, the Turkish lira is crashing and internationally he is in the doghouse.

Opinion: The wanna-be Sultan of Turkey is a dangerous man. His desire for unbridled power is obvious in his $615 million palace and recent disruption of a coup that may or may not have been a false flag.

Turkey, prior to 2010, was a mostly secular nation with a European feel. Turkey was also a staunch NATO ally until trading with Israel abruptly ended with the Mavi Marmara Flotilla incident on May 31, 2010.

It has been downhill from there.

Erdogan’s Islamic roots and support for Hamas was out in the open. The flotilla that was meant to end the Israeli blockade of Gaza was instead a blatant act of aggression on the part of Erdogan against the Jewish state.

The Israeli embargo was/is for the sole purpose of preventing weapons, missiles, and tunnel-building materials from entering Gaza. No humanitarian aid has ever been blocked.

In 2013, President Obama got into the act and coerced Netanyahu into making an apology for Turkey’s act of aggression and pay reparations of $20 million in a move that emboldened PM Erdogan. With the president of the US involved, Israel acquiesced.

Since then, Turkey has reestablished relations with Israel but Erdogan makes no secret of his support for Hamas – whose only reason for existence is the total destruction of Israel.

Since we know from Ezekiel 38:1-6 that Turkey will one day join in an invasion force led by Russia, we can conclude that Erdogan’s hand of reconciliation from Turkey is a fist.

bungle

JPost: “Israel is “heading to a place of danger,” Kerry told the Saban Forum, warning of “an erosion over a period of time” of the chances for a real and lasting Israeli-Palestinian peace “by virtue of this continued settlement process.”

Opinion: Since being sworn in as Secretary of State on February 1, 2013, John Kerry’s Middle East blunders are epic:

  • 2014: Kerry warns Israel of becoming an apartheid state while negotiating a two-state solution
  • 2014: Kerry drew moral equivalence between Hamas and the IDF
  • 2015: Kerry declared climate change a greater threat to the world than terrorism
  • 2015: Kerry hails nuclear deal as Iran calls for death to America
  • 2016: Kerry lobbied western banks to open business with Iran, the world’s largest state sponsor of terror
  • 2016: Kerry has concerns over Iran’s missiles with Israel must be wiped off the map written in Hebrew
  • 2016: Kerry thanks Iran for releasing US Navy sailors held on their knees at gun point

The damage done to Israel in the eight years of the Obama presidency has been nothing short of catastrophic and, apparently, neither Obama nor Kerry are done.

Israel is God’s land and His covenant with Abraham will never be broken:

  • Israel’s ownership of Israel including the West Bank were part of the Abrahamic Covenant (Genesis 17:7-8; Joel 3:1-2; Romans 9:3-5)
  • Israel’s ownership of Palestine was part of the 1917 Balfour Letter
  • Israel’s legal right to the entire West Bank, Jerusalem, Sinai, Gaza and the Golan heights was settled after the 1967 war

EMPs are bursts of energy that can be caused by a high-altitude nuclear detonation or a major solar storm.” Opinion: The possibility of an EMP exists for Israel
