Breaking Israel News: “Three weeks after renaming the Western Wall Al-Buraq, a Muslim holy site, the UN is now considering a demand by the Palestinian Authority to censor an exhibition because it mentions a Jewish connection to Jerusalem.

The furor surrounds an exhibit in a corridor near a popular cafe in the UN basement. Several panels depict Israel’s Arabs, its technology innovations and other aspects of Israeli life. One panel shows Jerusalem, referring to it as “the spiritual and physical capital of the Jewish people.”

Palestinian Charge d’Affaires Feda Abdelhady-Nasser wrote to UN Secretary General Ban Ki Moon and General Assembly President Mogens Lykketoft demanding the panel be removed.

The letter said any references “which purport to assert Israeli sovereignty on this land…are legally, politically and morally incorrect and unacceptable.”

Opinion: The possession of Jerusalem, the city of David, was and is the immovable rock spoken of by Zechariah 12:2-3.

Psalm 137:1-4 tells of  the horror of the Israeli people watching the destruction of Jerusalem in 586 BC. So great was their grief that the singers were silent as the exiles were taken to a foreign land.

Psalm 137:5-6 the Psalmist vows to keep Jerusalem in his memory: “If I forget you, O Jerusalem, Let my right hand forget its skill!  If I do not remember you, Let my tongue cling to the roof of my mouth—If I do not exalt Jerusalem
Above my chief joy.”

And in Psalm 137: 7 the eternal and perpetual enemy of the Jewish people comes into view: “Remember, O Lord, against the sons of Edom The day of Jerusalem, Who said, “Raze it, raze it, To its very foundation!”

What is important to see here is that God has pronounced a future  judgment against Edom. When Nebuchadnezzar’s armies came to take the Israelites captive it was the Edomites who gave aid in the destruction of Jerusalem.

“In the day that you stood on the other side—In the day that strangers carried captive his forces, When foreigners entered his gates And cast lots for Jerusalem—Even you were as one of them.” Obadiah 1:11

Obadiah 1:13-14 goes into great detail about how judgment will come because the Edomites stole the Israelites’ possessions, even turning in those who escaped; and Obadiah 1:15 assures Edom that what they have done to God’s people will be done to them.

Obadiah 1:18 gives the final disposition “… no survivor shall remain of the house of Esau, For the Lord has spoken.”

Regardless of what the UN does or doesn’t do, Jerusalem will be the eternal capital of Israel, for the Lord will dwell there, Zechariah 8:3.

Report: US planning to take tougher line against Israel

Arutz Sheva: “The Middle East Quartet, made up of the US, EU, UN, and Russia, is scheduled to release a major policy report later in coming weeks, and senior diplomats involved in its drafting have indicated that the US is taking a far harder line on Israel than in the past.

The report, which is likely to be released in late May or early June, will focus heavily on Israeli construction in Judea, Samaria, and Jerusalem, senior diplomats told AP. The Quartet’s report will also take Israel to task for the demolition of illegal Arab buildings – many of which were built with the support of the European Union.

While in the past the US worked to soften some of the criticism against Israel leveled by the EU, UN, and Russia, now, say officials working on the Quartet report, US diplomats are pushing for harsher language against the Jewish state.

One diplomat said the report was the Obama administration’s way of putting Israel “on notice” that its patience was wearing thin.

Opinion: This would be humorous if it were not tragic ( “I will bless those who bless you, And I will curse him who curses you …”)  since it is our nation who will suffer the consequences.

We reported on a UN vote that Mahmoud Abbas brought to the UN Security Council on April 22 on final status terms for Palestinian land and boundaries. The vote was delayed for unknown reasons and most experts expect the final decision to rest on President Obama.

Based on the words from the Obama diplomat that Obama’s patience is wearing thin, a vote against Israel may be forthcoming.

It is not the patience of Mr. Obama that the world should be concerned with, but the King of the Universe.

ISIS to Israel: “We’re coming very soon”

Debkafile: “The last 48 hours (May 7-8) have seen a major escalation of the ISIS threats against Israel, debkafile’s intelligence and counterterrorism sources report. In a coordinated maneuver by all of the ISIS commands in the Middle East, the terrorist organization simultaneously released at least 10 videos that it said showed ISIS forces on their way to attack targets in Israel.

All of the videos refer to the Palestinian issue, Jerusalem and the timing of the attacks. In each one, the narrator claims the terror organization did not forget the Palestinians, and will not neglect them any more; describes Jerusalem as “a bridge to Islam”; and threatens an impending attack, saying “We’re coming, and coming very soon” accompanied by images of fighters from the ISIS affiliate in the Sinai are shown.”

65 Killed in Egypt's Sinai, ISIS Claims Responsibility

65 Killed in Egypt’s Sinai, ISIS Claims Responsibility

Opinion: According to the Bible, Amalek was the first enemy that Israel encountered after the crossing of the Red Sea:

Excerpt Antichrist The Search For Amalek: “No sooner had he heard of Israel’s departure from Egypt, than he set out against them and met them by the Red Sea. Amalek now marched from his settlement in Seir [southern Jordan today] which was no less than four hundred parasangs [approximately 900 miles] away from the encampment of the Jews; and although five nations, the Hittites, the Hivites, the Jebusites, the Amorites, and the Canaanites, had their dwellings between his home and the camp of the Jews, he insisted upon being the first to declare war upon Israel.”

Amalek was a son of Eliphaz who was a son of Esau, a hereditary and eternal enemy of Israel. Esau was a son of Isaac and Rebekah and twin brother of Jacob Malachi 1:1-3

joining

The Amalekites were a people of the Negev and adjoining Sinai desert. The hatred over the birthright that Esau sold for a bowl of soup was passed to Amalek who God has sworn to have war with generation after generation (Ex. 17:16). It is that same bloodline that is  threatening Israel today.

Headlines of Arabs from the southern deserts are a neon sign that God has given us the outcome of the future war of Psalm 83:

The Psalm 83 Arab alliance:
1. Edom Mount Seir (modern day Palestinians, West Bank and southern Jordan)
2.
Moab (Palestinians, central Jordan)
3. Ammon and Lot (Palestinians, northern Jordan)
4. Amalek (Arabs of the Sinai)
5. Ishmaelites (Saudi Arabia)
6. Hagarenes (Egypt)
7. Philistia (Gaza, Hamas)
8. The inhabitants of Tyre (southern Lebanon, Hezbollah)
9. Gebal (northern Lebanon, Hezbollah)
10. Assyria (Syria and Kurdish northern Iraq)
