The Clarion Project: “A German regional court ruled that the setting fire to a synagogue was not an anti-Semitic act, but rather was intended to draw “attention to the Gaza conflict.”

As such, the three men convicted of the crime – identified only as Muhammad E., 31, Ismail A., 26, and Muhammad A., 20 – were given suspended sentences. The men threw a firebomb into the synagogue in Wuppertal which caused $850 of damage in the summer of 2014 during Operation Protective Edge, Israel’s response to continuous rockets and missiles fired into its territory by Hamas.

In the ruling, the court noted that the men had been drinking alcohol and that no one was injured.”

Opinion: So it begins again!  Not just the increased attacks and acts of terrorism against the Jews; but now the ‘lawful’ sanctioning of such acts.  This, being in the very country that brought about the Holocaust.  Indeed, the very community that sanctioned Kristallnacht almost 80 years agoBut, back then Germany had the Nuremberg Laws of 1935, created by Hitler and the Nazis, as the ‘legal’ means for the destruction of Jewish property and basic rights – and later Jewish lives.  From Kristallnacht in November 1938, just seven years expired until the Final Solution ended with the murder of over 6 million Jews.  Seven years.

The length of time of the 70th week of Daniel – the time of tribulation.  Will we see another 6 million more Jewish lives destroyed?  What we learn from history is that we don’t learn much from history.  But wait!  Maybe we have learned something from history.  We’ll just skip all the bureaucratic law making and go to directly condoning the acts themselves.  Then it becomes a quick and easy way to appease all the Islamic terrorists that Madam Merkel has so graciously invited into her country.

From a prophetic standpoint Jesus noted in John 15:18, “If the world hates you, know that the world hated me first.”

And, Luke 21:24, “They [Jews] will fall by the sword and will be taken as prisoners to all the nations.”

But, this same prophecy was uttered well before Jesus: Leviticus 26:33, “You, however, I will scatter among the nations and will draw out a sword after you.”

However, soon, Jeremiah 30:11, “For I am with you,’ declares the LORD, ‘to save you; For I will destroy completely all the nations where I have scattered you, Only I will not destroy you completely But I will chasten you justly.”

This will not happen until the church is gone, then Jehovah turns His attention to His ‘stiff neck’ people,the Jews, during the 70th  week of Daniel which culminates in the Valley of Jehoshaphat, Joel 3:2.  Jehovah will then judge the nations and place His enemies under the footstool of the Messiah, His Son, then gives the iron scepter to His Son to rule from Zion (Jerusalem), Psalm 110.  See. All the UN resolutions will be for naught!

Reuters News: “U.S. President-elect Donald Trump’s nominee to be U.S. ambassador to the United Nations will blast the world body over its treatment of Israel at her Senate confirmation hearing, according to prepared testimony seen by Reuters on Tuesday.

“Nowhere has the UN’s failure been more consistent and more outrageous than in its bias against our close ally Israel,” Republican South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley said in the opening remarks for her appearance on Wednesday before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.

Any honest assessment also finds an institution that is often at odds with American national interests and American taxpayers.”

Opinion: Contrast Nikki Haley’s comments with Samantha Power, Obama’s UN ambassador to the UN:

“The United States will not support the use of any additional land for the purpose of settlements during the transitional period. Indeed, the immediate adoption of a settlement freeze by Israel, more than any other action, could create the confidence needed for wider participation in these talks. Further settlement activity is in no way necessary for the security of Israel and only diminishes the confidence of the Arabs that a final outcome can be freely and fairly negotiated.”

It should come as no surprise that Mrs. Power trained at the knee of George Soros.

Debkafile: Israel’s failure to deal with Bedouin lawlessness in the Negev exploded into violence over court-ordered demolitions of illegal homes and death of Police 1st Sgt. Erez Levy.

First Sgt. Erez Levy, 34, an officer in the operations branch of the Israel Police, was crushed to death Wednesday morning, Jan. 18, in a car-ramming attack at the Bedouin village of Umm-al-Hiran in the southern Negev region. He was laid to rest that afternoon at the military cemetery in the city of Yavneh. He left behind a wife and two children.”

Opinion: “I against my brother; I and my brother against my cousin; I and my brother and my cousin against the world.”

The old Bedouin saying is an interesting parallel to the prophecy the Angel of the Lord gave to Ishmael’s mother Hagar (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.”

(Bedouin is used commonly to refer to the people who live nomadic lifestyles outside cities and towns. It is popular lore among the Bedouin that they are the descendants of Ishmael, son of Abraham and Hagar)

At the age of 137, Ishmael died and was gathered to his people. The proof that the prophecy of Ishmael’s wild temperament would be fulfilled in Ishmael’s descendants can be found in his lineage Genesis 25:12-17. After his death, Ishmael’s 12 sons and tribes lived in the area of Havilah as far as Shur, which is east of Egypt.

Genesis 25:18 is a chilling reminder the prophecy the Angel of the Lord gave to Hagar of her son’s wild temperament was passed to Ishmael’s descendants:

“And they dwelled from Havilah to Shur that upon the face of the Egypt as one goes toward Assyria in defiance against all his brothers.”

The Sinai is the ancient home of Amalek, the illegitimate grandson of Esau, whom God swore to have war against (Ex 17:16), and Moses instructed the Israelites to pray against (Deut. 25:17).

The New American: “In a bizarre spectacle that took many low-level establishment-minded analysts by surprise, brutal Communist Chinese dictator Xi Jinping was crowned the king of globalism this week by embattled Western globalists at the World Economic Forum (WEF) in Davos. Blasting “excessive pursuit of profits,” Xi (shown) offered a “vigorous defense” of globalism and pseudo-“free trade” schemes in his keynote speech at the event.

Without a trace of irony, the brutal dictator claimed to be working for “the people” while promoting “liberalization” and “openness”.

Opinion: The revived final empire will not be run by Xi Jinping. Daniel 9:26 is clear that the final dictator will come from somewhere inside the  ancient Roman empire.

We stated numerous times during the presidential campaign that globalism was on the ballot. A win for Hillary Clinton was a vote for a hemispheric common market with open borders and free trade, while a vote for Donald Trump was a vote to make ‘America Great Again’ by putting America first.

The problem for globalists is that their heroes Barack Obama and Ban Ki Moon are yesterday’s news. Nationalism is sweeping the world and until a charismatic politician from somewhere in the vast boundaries of ancient Rome stands up (Daniel 7:20) new globalist leaders will have to carry the banner.

McClatchy Report: “With barely 72 hours left in office, President Barack Obama Tuesday did an abrupt U-turn on his years-long assault on government leaks and showed leniency toward two military figures who’d helped make public highly sensitive secrets.

Both Democrats and Republicans said they were bewildered – even angered – by Obama’s commutation of the 35-year prison term of Chelsea Manning, the former Army intelligence specialist who turned over some 700,000 classified and sensitive diplomatic documents to the anti-secrecy website WikiLeaks.”

Opinion: The Russians Are Coming was a 1996 comedy of a Russian submarine that ran aground off Cape Cod, which had a significant number of summer visitors. Rather than radio for help and risk an embarrassing international incident, the captain sends a nine-man landing party, headed by Political Officer Lieutenant Yuri Rozanov (Alan Arkin), to find a motor launch to help free the submarine from the bar.

It was a silly B movie and made about as much sense as the latest pardon. Obama now condones what he has been making an uproar about since the election; hacking – and specifically – Russian hacking.

One can’t help but wonder how much of this is pandering to the LGBT community?

But then again, national security under this president has been a façade. Since 2009 Obama’s former Secretary of State ran multiple, private, unsecured internet servers as the nation’s top Diplomat.

A hacker’s dream.

In 2015, CBS’ Bill Plante (CBS News) asked Obama when he learned about Clinton’s private server, and Obama answered: “The same time everybody else learned it – through news reports.”

Documents later released by the FBI  showed that Obama used a pseudonym in emails to Clinton — emails sent to the address on her private server.

Next up for pardon: Hillary Clinton, the ultimate leaker.

The Times of Israel: BRUSSELS (AP) — European Union nations bracing for the looming Donald Trump presidency showed defiance Monday in the face of the president-elect’s stinging comments on everything from NATO and German cars to the crumbling of the EU itself.

Trump also said Britain’s decision to leave the 28-nation European Union would “end up being a great thing,” and he predicted that other countries would also leave.

Opinion: EU progressives have their collective noses out of joint. The utter gall of a nationalist president-elect insulting the very fabric of socialism, is beyond the pale.

Worst of all Trump even had the nerve to slam Sunday’s Paris peace conference that was trying to negate 4,000 years of Bible history. Because of Trump the conference folded like a house of cards.

The current structure of the European Union is a train wreck. Wealthy northern countries mixed with economically weak southern countries is a page right out of Daniel 2.

Daniel is about to interpret king Nebuchadnezzar’s dream:

“You, O king, were watching; and behold, a great image! This great image, whose splendor was excellent, stood before you; and its form was awesome. This image’s head was of fine gold, its chest and arms of silver, its belly and thighs of bronze, its legs of iron, its feet partly of iron and partly of clay.” Daniel 2: 31-33

After praying to God who reveals secrets, Daniel described the king’s dream and interpretation in detail:

Head of gold: You are this head of gold (Babylon)

Chest and arms of silver: After you another shall arise inferior to you (Medo-Persia)

Belly and thighs of bronze: A third kingdom of bronze shall rule over all the earth  (Alexander/Greece)

Legs of iron: Will break in pieces and crush all the others (Rome/Constantinople)

Feet of iron and clay: Partly of potter’s clay and partly of iron, the kingdom shall be divided (revived Rome, a perfect description of the EU today).

Astounding, isn’t it? Daniel gave an account of the Gentile empires that would dominate the world all the way to the end of the age. The current structure of the EU will one day give way to 10 divisions each with a king (leader).

The eleventh king will trample the earth Daniel 7:23-25.

Breaking Israel News: “The United Kingdom defied the anti-Israel sentiment coursing through Sunday’s “peace” summit in Paris by criticizing the conference as detrimental to Israel’s interests and refusing to sign a joint statement issued after the summit which called for a two-state solution.”

Opinion: The stunning announcement from the UK would suggest that the country voted against UN resolution 2334 which made all Jewish settlements on the West Bank and Jerusalem illegal.

But on December 23, 2016, the UK voted against Israel, so why the sudden change of heart? The third paragraph of the article tells the story:

The statement also referenced the inauguration of Donald Trump, arguing that the timing of the conference “just days before the transition to a new American President” rendered moot any agreement, of which the US would eventually be the “ultimate guarantor.”

And he is not even sworn in yet – 2017 promises to be quite a year.
