Arutz Sheva: “Hezbollah officials say they are preparing to use the strategies and techniques they learned fighting Syrian rebels along the border with Lebanon to conquer Israel’s northern Galilee region.

The Iranian-backed Shia Islamist group has been making steady gains in its hard-fought campaign to wrest control of the Qalamoun region in Syria from Sunni rebels, including jihadists from Al Qaeda’s Nusra Front, despite itself incurring significant losses.

But although that battle is still ongoing, a series of remarks by Hezbollah officials and propaganda outlets, translated by MEMRI, reveal that the terror group still has its eye on a future conflict with Israel.”

Opinion: Galilee is a stepping stone for the ultimate prize –  Jerusalem. Not just for Hezbollah, Hamas, and the Palestinian Authority, who are within close proximity, but for the whole world, Zechariah 14:2.

Here’s why:

Zechariah 3:2 “And the Lord said to Satan, “The Lord rebuke you, Satan! The Lord who has chosen Jerusalem rebuke you! Is this not a brand (Judah) plucked from the fire (delivered from the Captivity)?”

And God told the nations that Jerusalem will confound them:

Zechariah 12:2-3 “Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of drunkenness to all the surrounding peoples, when they lay siege against Judah and Jerusalem. And it shall happen in that day that I will make Jerusalem a very heavy stone for all peoples; all who would heave it away will surely be cut in pieces, though all nations of the earth are gathered against it.

And in that day (near the end of the tribulation), the Lord will remove the scales from their eyes (Acts 9:18).

Zechariah 12:10 “And I will pour on the house of David and on the inhabitants of Jerusalem the Spirit of grace and supplication; then they will look on Me whom they pierced. Yes, they will mourn for Him as one mourns for his only son, and grieve for Him as one grieves for a firstborn.”

Wow.

angel

The New York Times: “Every word counts in the delicate diplomacy of the Middle East, where negotiators have often resorted to creative ambiguity.

So Pope Francis’ sotto voce greeting to President Mahmoud Abbas of the Palestinian Authority during a meeting at the Vatican on Saturday, in which he referred to Mr. Abbas as an “angel of peace,” but with an uncertain verb, has caused a linguistic and political furor that is still resonating days later.

Did the pope tell Mr. Abbas “You are an angel of peace,” as many news outlets, including the main Italian news agency ANSA, The Associated Press and The New York Times, reported? That phrasing pleased Palestinians but infuriated some Israelis and Jewish leaders around the world.”

Opinion: The verb is irrelevant. Whether the Pope said you are an angel, or you could be an angel, or we would like you to be an angel, is a distraction.

Pope Francis is all for giving a descendant of Esau control of Jerusalem. And Abbas, the unelected leader of a non-people, is obsessed with coveting it.

“And they will fall by the edge of the sword, and be led away captive into all nations. And Jerusalem will be trampled by Gentiles until the times of the Gentiles are fulfilled.” Luke 21:24

The times of the Gentiles ends with the coming of Jesus Christ.

Find us ready, Lord.

sjp_0Front Page Magazine: “The world is witnessing a resurgence of global anti-Semitism not seen since the 1930s and the “Final Solution.” In the Middle East, Hitler-admiring regimes like Iran, and Hitler-admiring parties like Hezbollah, Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood, are openly planning to finish the job the Nazis started. Even in America, until now the most hospitable place outside of Israel for Jews, the atmosphere is more hostile than at any time in the last 70 years.

Across the United States student groups associated with the Muslim Brotherhood, specifically Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP) and the Muslim Students Association, are engaged in a vitriolic campaign against Israel and those students who support its right to exist. These organizations promote the propaganda of the terrorist organization Hamas, and call for the destruction of the Jewish state.

To advance this genocidal agenda, SJP endorses the lie that Israel was created on territory stolen from the Palestinians and, therefore, Jews illegally occupy Arab lands from which they must be purged.

In 1948 when Israel was created, there was no Palestinian political entity, no movement for a Palestinian state, and no people calling itself Palestinian.”

Opinion: News Flash: There is no such thing as a Palestinian. The name was re-crafted for Arabs from Jordan by a blood thirsty Amalek of the 20th century, Yasser Arafat.

Non-revisionist history:

The 1967 war, also called the six day war, was to be a genocidal assault against the Jewish state by Egypt, Jordan and Syria. But Israel, having learned from the book of Esther in 520 BC, rather than wait to be annihilated, preempted and attacked first.

The victory stunned the world as Israel captured the West Bank, East Jerusalem, the Gaza Strip, the Golan Heights, and the Sinai Peninsula.

When Israel recaptured the West Bank from Jordan, King Abdullah refused to repatriate any more refugees, and instead put them in internment camps.

It was in those camps, with the help of Yasser Arafat, that the name Palestinian became associated with Arabs from Jordan. Prior to 1967, “Palestinian was a disparaging name for Jews living in Palestine” (which was renamed Israel in 1948).

Yet, since 1967, the UN has called these lands “occupied,” even though the recaptured lands were part of the 1917 British Mandate, and no nation has ever returned land taken during a defensive action.

Here is what the SJP and MSA are fighting against:

The land of Israel was granted to a man named Abram, whom God renamed Abraham, in 4000 BC . The gift was an unbreakabe and forever covenant between God and Abraham and his descendants after him, Genesis 17:7-8.

Be careful trying to explain this to a progressive, they have a tendency to get very angry. It’s that truth thingy.

The ‘Framework’ for Israel’s Doom

Front Page Magazine: “It  was recently revealed that the President intends to publicly endorse specific borders and other terms for a Palestinian state, which he hopes will go down in history as the “Obama Framework.”  But it would be more truthful to call it what it is — the Palestinian Framework. The new “Obama Framework”

Mideast Disasters Multiply Thanks To U.S. Power Vacuum

Investors Business Daily Op-Ed: “In the summer of 2007, first-term Sen. Barack Obama of Illinois greatly enhanced his media-perceived gravitas with what was hailed as a weighty article in Foreign Affairs magazine. Its title was “Renewing American Leadership.” But it is its subtitle that is painfully ironic today: “Common Security for our Common Humanity.” The

Great Friday

Was Jesus Crucified on Friday? Some time ago a member of a small group I was leading got very upset over which day of the week Christ was crucified. My friend was absolutely positively sure that Christ was crucified on Wednesday. When I first came to Christ and began to study, I was surprised by the controversies within the body of Christ: which version
