Thou destroyest them that speak falsehood; the LORD abhorreth the man of blood and of deceit.
The popular association of "philistinism" with barbarity is fitting, for the Philistines represent the very opposite of the CHESED (kindness) that is the driving force of the religion of Abraham (Universal Torah, TOLDOT, by Rabbi Avraham Greenbaum).


The Hamas (Hebrew: “VIOLENCE”) Charter: The PLO: Article 27: "...The Islamic nature of Palestine is part of our religion and whoever takes his religion lightly is a loser. "Who will be adverse to the religion of Abraham, but he whose mind is infatuated? (The Cow - verse 130).

 

Fury in Israel over Abbas-Mashaal Meeting: Minister Yuli Edelstein: the PA is now a terror entity – result "will be a disaster for the Palestinians." Nationalist politicians reacted angrily to news of the meeting between Palestinian Authority and Fatah head (PA) Mahmoud Abbas and Hamas head Khaled Mashaal, and Abbas's statement that there are "no more differences" between the two movements (INN, 11/24/2011).


Saudi FM: Iran is 'A Threat to the Entire Middle East': Saudi Arabia's Foreign Minister called Iran a threat to the entire Middle East, accusing Tehran of instigating Shi'ite violence. While most analysts here and abroad fret about the possibility of a war between Iran and Israel, it could be that Iran has its eyes on another prize – Saudi Arabia.

Al-Feisal was more direct. The report quoted him as saying that it was necessary to examine problems of the Iranian nuclear program and Iranian intervention in countries like Bahrain in order to determine what could be done about them.

“Unfortunately, these developments have come about at the same time that other crises, which have unfortunately become part of the reality of this region, are still ongoing.” Chief among those, he said, are “the Palestinian problem,” which had gotten worse because of “Israel's stiff-necked refusal to submit to the authority of international groups” (INN,
11/24/2011 ).

"Israel's stiff-necked refusal" : "Hearken to My voice. Yet they hearkened not, nor inclined their ear (to Torah), but walked every one in the stubbornness of their evil heart; therefore I brought upon them all the words of this covenant (Lev. 26:14-43), which I commanded them to do, but they did them not' (Jer. 11:7-8, 3:17-18).

"Arise, O Lord, confront him (Edom: Esau-Ishmael); bring him down to his knees; rescue my soul from the wicked, Your sword" (Psalm 17:13, Isaiah 1:16-20 , Leviticus 26:25). The wicked are merely God's tools to execute His judgments (Psalms 89:29-33).

 

We can read in the Bible how God made Darius of Media & Cyrus of Persia His agents to overthrow the wicked Babylonians. (Isaiah Chs 13-14, Jer. Ch 50, Daniel). Retribution came to Babylon because they plundered God’s heritage and Jerusalem. See Joel 4:1-2, Zech. 12:9. Zeph. 3:19-20 which says: ”Behold, I wreak destruction upon all those who afflict you at that time.” At the time of the Ingathering of the exiles.

 

Therefore, Iran is 'A Threat to the Entire Middle East' and beyond. All Israel should therefore return to the Torah, to the best of their ability, if the nations want to "save themselves" they should eliminate the Iranian threat, return to the 7 Laws of Noah and immediately stop the persecution of Israel.


Fayyad Warns: No Tax Money - No More PA: Palestinian Authority Prime Minister Salam Fayyad: If Israel doesn't transfer our tax money, we will fail financially and cease to exist.

 

Israeli officials decided to halt the transfer of taxes to the PA as part of a round of sanctions against the entity, following its ascension as a 'full-member state' to UNESCO. Last week, Israel's cabinet voted to maintain the freeze. Israel transfers some $100 million in tax payments to the PA every month.


Foreign Minister Støre reportedly said Fayyad is correct in saying that the PA will soon cease to exist, and compared the Israeli decision to waterboarding, the method of torture used by the United States on security prisoners, when interrogators simulate drowning by pouring water on the head of the prisoner.

“This is waterboarding-style torture, only that it has to do with the economy,” Støre was quoted as having said.


On Tuesday, United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon asked Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu to resume the transfer of taxes to the PA, saying that transferring tax money to the PA would be in line with Israel’s legal obligations (INN, 11/25/2011).


Psalms 37:1-2  Of David. ”Do not compete with the evildoers; do not envy those who commit injustice. For they will be speedily cut off like grass and wither like green vegetation.”


Once the grass is cut from its roots, it is condemned to whither and fade. Those who seek to do wrong and who strive to corrupt this world have no real roots. Their nourishment comes from others, and when they are separated from those (financial) sources, they cannot have any life (state) of their own (Rabbi Yitzchak Rubin). Similarly, the socalled ’Palestinians’ have no real roots in the land of Israel. See 'Watch the Grass Grow'   

PA Admits Israeli Sanctions Are Cutting Deep: PA prime minister Salam Fayyad says Israel freeze of tax revenues to Ramallah is having a 'devastating impact'. Israel froze the transfer of tax revenues - amounting to roughly $100 million per month - after the PA launched a series of unilateral moves at the United Nations aimed at attaining recognition of a state based on pre-1967 lines at the world body.

 

Officials in Jerusalem said the moves, which began with a now-moribund application for statehood at the UN Security Council and culminated in UNESCO voting to induct the PA as a 'member state,' were a direct violation of the bilateral Oslo Accords. All contacts and cooperation with the PA - including the transfer of tax revenues - occur under the auspices of bilateral agreements that proscribe unilateral moves like those the PA is pursuing, Israeli officials note (INN, 11/27/2011 ).


"For, behold, the day cometh, it burneth as a furnace; and all the proud, and all that work wickedness, shall be stubble; and the day (of the redemption of Israel) that cometh shall set them ablaze, saith the LORD of hosts, that IT SHALL LEAVE THEM NEITHER ROOT NOR BRANCH. But unto you that fear My name shall the sun of righteousness (kingdom of David, Psalm 89:34-38) arise with healing in its wings; and ye shall go forth,.. And ye shall tread down the wicked; for they shall be ashes under the soles of your feet..." (Malachi 3:19-21, Isaiah 26:1-6).


Lieberman: Cash for PA Encourages Murder: Foreign Minister says transfer of money to PA is irresponsible, vows to fight it. Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman said Monday that he would oppose intentions to release funds to the Palestinian Authority (PA). He called such a move "irresponsible" and said it would encourage murder.

The funds -- from tax revenues collected by Israel on behalf of the PA – were frozen after the PA took unilateral steps toward statehood. Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu said Sunday that he might release the funds, but Lieberman came out against the plan with all guns blazing (INN; 11/28/2011).

Netanyahu May Reward Abbas for ‘Diplomatic Calm’ : Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu says he may release Palestinian Authority (PA) tax revenues collected by Israel because PA chairman Mahmoud Abbas has “calmed down” after his failure to win full membership in the United Nations (INN, 11/28/2011). 

Lieberman: Resuming Tax Transfers to PA Perpetuates Terror: The release of tax revenues to the PA "gives the murderers of Jews and Israelis luxury and respectability." Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman on Wednesday criticized the decision of eight senior ministers to release frozen tax revenue funds to the Palestinian Authority (INN, 11/30/2011).


If the redemption is delayed, it is because "your destroyers and those that lay you waste come forth from you"  (Isaiah 49:17). It is the wicked of Israel who cause the destruction of Zion, this is seen today in the transfer of money to the PA which enables them to maintain their irrational hatred for the Jews and in the tireless efforts by Israel 's secular political leadership with the full backing of its judiciary, police, the media etc. to uproot Jews from their religious inheritance and their own ancestral land. See Rabbi Avraham Greenbaum on Isaiah 49:17.

”Woe that Assyria is the rod of My wrath... Against a hypocritical nation (Israel) I will incite them,.." (Isaiah 10:5-6). Sennacherib's advance against Jerusalem was the prototype of the destined attack by Gog and Magog at the end of days. Isaiah's teachings and Rabbi Avraham Greenbaum's commentaries (Azamra.org) on these prophecies can thus provide us with timely lessons as to how WE should SEE and RESPOND to the protracted campaign of the nations of the world against Israel today (Isaiah Chs. 10, 37, Daniel 12:1, Ezekiel 38).

'Merkel Beat Netanyahu at Poker over Submarine Sale': Merkel approved the sale of a submarine to Israel on condition that Netanyahu unfreeze taxes collected for the PA, reports Die Welt. The Prime Minister ostensibly freed the taxes, which were frozen in retaliation for the PA’s unilateral bid for United Nations membership, because PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas supposedly has ”calmed down.” However, the day after the Cabinet approved handing over the monthly sum of $100 million, Abbas reiterated that the PA will continue its membership bid, a blatant violation of the Oslo Accords. 

Merkel told the Knesset in 2008, "The security of Israel is for me, as German Chancellor, never negotiable,” but the sale of a sixth German submarine was very much negotiable. Israel’s freezing of tax funds for the Palestinian Authority gave Merkel an opportunity to exercise pressure on Israel while allowing Netanyahu to secure the submarine, with a hefty subsidy from Germany (INN, 12/4/2011).


Report: Diplomat credits Jordan king for Israel tax release:
The Palestinian ambassador to Jordan lauded the role of King Abdullah in pushing Israel to release frozen tax revenues to the PA, Jordanian media said Saturday. Ambassador Atallah Khayri told Amman-based daily Al-Arab Al-Youm that the Jordanian king secured international and regional pressure on Israel to unblock the held funds. Khayri said King Abdullah's efforts -- including contact with German Chancellor Angela Merkel and the British Prime Minister David Cameron -- paid off when Israel finally released the payments on Dec. 1.
(Maan News, 04/12/2011).

Netanyahu Thanks Merkel for Submarine: PM Netanyahu thanks Chancellor Merkel for agreeing to provide Israel with submarine, says it will help Israel's security needs (INN, 3/22/2012).

Like Norway's FM, Germany's Chancellor Angela Merkel is scolding Israel which comply with the Oslo Accords, while they support the Arab "Palestinians" which deal contrary to it.

Desparate for a 'Success,' Top Obama Official Leans on Israel: U.S. Defense Secretary Leon Panetta demanded that Israel get back to the "damn" negotiating table - and make concessions to the PA (INN, 12/3/2011).


Obama in Hot Water Over Envoy’s Anti-Israel Remarks: The White House distanced itself from an ambassador’s blaming Israel for fueling anti-Semitism because of the standoff with the PA. Howard Gutman, U.S. Ambassador to Belgium, told a conference of Jewish lawyers last week,

“A distinction should be made between traditional anti-Semitism, which should be condemned and Muslim hatred for Jews, which stems from the ongoing conflict between Israel and the Palestinians.
Gutman added that reaching a peace pact with the Palestinian Authority will reduce anti-Semitism. He was speaking at a conference on how to combat anti-Semitism, which he claimed is not worsening.

His remarks reflect views of the State Department, which has been conducting a behind-the-scenes campaign for more than 30 years to eliminate a Jewish presence in Judea and Samaria (INN, 12/4/2011).


Muslim hatred for Jews, stems from the ongoing “ancient hatred” which is fueled by the endless spread of incitement through the Arab, PA/Hamas media, Mosques, schools--funded by Norway, USA, EU and UN -- they all together have aroused an entire generation of Muslims to hate the Jewish people. In the last quarter of 2010 alone, the PA was responsible for more than 20 cartoons, videos and speeches calling for violence and the destruction of Israel. And Americas terrorist in the Middle East, PA's  President Abbas personally honors families of suicide bombers, terrorists and martyrs.


Last week the bankrupt EU agreed to approve an increase

of €100 million in aid to  Hamas and PLO terrorists next year. To fund this, the MEPs cut other lines such as the EU Police Mission in Afghanistan.
The money will secure the continued capacity of the Arab-Palestinian propaganda machine, which daily are calling their audience to eliminate the Jews of the world.

This is a fresh, detestable video from the Christian Norwegian FM's collaborating partner in Gaza: Islamic Militants in Gaza: With Allah's Teachings "We Harvest the Skulls of...Jews" (at Youtube or MEMRITV.org).


Ezekiel 38:10-13, 36:2,5 and Psalm 83 state explicitly, that the intention of Gog and his allies is to despoil Israel of their wealth and appropriate their land, a common trait among Israel's enemies, throughout history. At the End of Days both Edom and Ishmael will join forces together and come against the Jewish people in Israel (Lech Lecha: Hail to the Chief, Levi Chazen, INN).

 

In the course of this campaign they will become embroiled in conflict with one another since their faiths are different and they will make war against each other (MALBIM). And this is how God will judge them. ”And it shall come to pass in that day, that a great tumult from the LORD shall be among them; and they shall lay hold every one on the hand of his neighbour, and his hand shall rise up against the hand of his neighbour (Zechariah 14:13-14). ”every man's sword shall be against his brother” (Ezekiel 38:21). ”Then shall the LORD go forth, and fight against those nations, as when He fighteth in the day of battle (Zech. 14:3, 12:9, Jeremiah 30:7-11, Daniel 12:1, Exodus 14:24-31).

 

VIDEO: Barack Obama vs the People of Israel:  On May 19, 2011, President Barack Hussein Obama delivered a Middle East Foreign Policy speech in Washington, D.C.

"And Jacob beheld the countenance (face) of Laban, and, behold, it was not toward him as beforetime. And the LORD said unto Jacob: 'Return unto the land of thy fathers, and to thy kindred; and I will be with thee' (Genesis 31:2-3).

A man's face mirrors his feelings (Akeidas Yitzchak). This removal of God's protection as evidenced by the displeasure of Laban and his sons, was designed to provoke Jacob to leave Charan (literally, “Wrath”: a place of lies, deceptions, struggle and hardship), and return to Eretz Israel (Malbim). (While you still can bring your riches and your wealth with you). See'Image of God'

On Shabbat, some Azhkenazim recite this prayer: Master of All Worlds (Ribbon Kol Ha-Olamim) “...King Who is exalted above all the supernal host, Creator of all things, I beseech Your radiant presence, that You enable me and all the members of my household to find grace and favor in Your eyes, and in the eyes of all the offspring of Adam and Eve, and in the eyes of all those who see us, to serve You: and alllow us to recicve Shabbat with great joy, with prosperity and honor...

 

And give us a good urge to serve You with truth and with awe and with love, and may we be honored in Your eyes and in the eyes of all those that see us, for You are the King of glory, for to You it is pleasing and seemly...” See 'Pathway to Peace'

 

Jacob receives his father’s blessings for “the dew of the heaven and the fat of the land” and mastery over his brother Esau.  When Esau returns and the deception is revealed, all Isaac can do for his weeping son is to predict that he will live by his sword, "and you shall serve your brother, and it will be, when you grieve, that you will break his yoke off your neck." I.e., when Jacob/Israel falters the younger brother will forfeit his supremacy over the elder Esau/Edom (Psalms 89:29-33, II Samuel 7:14, 1 Kings 11:4-25, Isaiah 53:5).

God tells Rebekah that the younger Jacob / Israel will prevail over the elder Esau / Edom (Daniel 2:31-35,40-44, 7). "one people shall be stronger than the other people" (Gen. 25:23), i.e., they will never be equal: when one rises, the other will fall, and vice versa. In the end of days, God will redeem Jacob /Israel and save "him out of the hand of him (Esau/Edom) who is stronger than he. And they shall come and jubilate on the height of Zion, and they will stream to the goodness of the Lord,.." (Jeremiah 31:10-11, Isaiah 49:24-26).

Malachi 1:1-2:7 was chosen by the sages as Haftara to
Parshas Toldos (Genesis 25:19-28:9) which tells of the birth of Jacob and Esau and how Jacob took the birthright and the blessings from his brother. In Malachi's prophecy, God reproves the descendants of Jacob for failing to live up to their mission, followed by Malachi warning the "kingdom of priests" (Exodus 19:6, Isaiah 61:6-11) of the curses (Leviticus 26, Deut. 28) that will come upon them if they fail to heed his call to serve God with the proper respect (R' Avraham Greenbaum, Azamra).

Today is the New Moon (1 Samuel 20:18-42). The nations of the world are compared to the sun, while Israel is compared to the moon. Though Israel is the weakest and numerically smallest of the nations, (Deut. 4:27, 7:7-9), she is destined to rule the world after the dominion of evil will pass.

For as long as the greater light shines in the world, the lesser light is not seen. But when the greater light sets, the lesser light attains prominence. Similarly, as long as Esav’s light shines, Ya’akov’s light remains invisible. But when Esav’s light sets, then Yaakov's light becomes prominent! "At eventide it shall be light" (Zechariah 14:7, Tzefaniah 2:7, Isaiah 17:12-14, 60:1-7). May we soon see all Israel liberated from the yoke of the Christian and Muslim nations (Jer. 30:7-11, Daniel 12:1, Isaiah 54:10, Ezekiel 34:25-31, Leviticus 26:1-9).

"One cannot help but ponder how easily Jews can be deceived over and over and yet, over again by a "herd of sheep" (being led to slaughter) mentality into voting a certain way in national elections, or local elections for that matter, by a blindness which obscures facts, past track-records and affiliations.  And so we vote for mis-perceived “golden boys”, retrospectively at our own peril.   Doesn't it seem as if we keep failing because we can't or don't rise above our natures or perceive Hashem's tests? (False Perceptions Vs Hashem’s Will - Then and Now? By Moshe Burt, INN).

Palestinian Bid for UN Membership Faces
Near-Certain Defeat: The Palestinian bid to become a full member of the UN headed toward certain failure on Tuesday after the Security Council's membership committee deadlocked on the issue. It has become increasingly apparent that there are not sufficient votes to get a resolution passed, and it may not even come to a vote (New York Times).Palestinian Foreign Minister Admits Not Enough Support in UN Security Council for State (AP-Washington Post).


"And the eyes of the wicked shall fail
, and they shall have no way to flee, and their hope shall result in intense grief" (Job 11:20). Every expression of ”failure of the eyes” in the holy tongue, means one who looks forward to see something but does not achieve his wish. What they hope to see in you will be intense grief for them... (Rashi).

 

"And it will be, if you do not obey the Lord, your God, to observe to fulfill all His commandments and statutes,.. that all these curses will come upon you and overtake you. Your sons and daughters will be given over to another people, thine eyes shall look, and fail with longing for them all the day; but you will be powerless" (Deut. 32:15,32). Your eyes will longingly look out for the return of your children, but they will not return. The expression  refers to a hope which never materializes.

 

"So says the Lord: A voice is heard on high (Ramah), lamentation, bitter weeping, Rachel weeping for her children, she refuses to be comforted for her children for they are not. So says the Lord: Refrain your voice from weeping and your eyes from tears, for there is reward for your work, says the Lord, and they shall come back from the land of the enemy. And there is hope for your future, says the Lord, and the children shall return to their own border" (Jeremiah 31:14-16). Tens of Thousands Visit 'Mother Rachel's Tomb (INN, 11/9/2011).

 

Then it should be clear to all what is demanded from the Jewish people and those who identify with them.

PA Mourns Support for Jewish Israel as the ‘Cursed Promise’: The Palestinian Authority continues to speak in two languages. PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas official says he recognizes Israel but officials mourn the Balfour Declaration of November 2, 1917, in which Britain expressed Britain's support for "the establishment in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish people."

 

In its annual condemnation of the Balfour statement, high school girls in Tulkarm located several miles east of Netanya, wrote “letters of sorrow and pain” to Queen Elizabeth, Palestinian Media Watch (PMW) reported. Fatah member Faiz Abu Aitah told the official Palestinian Authority's daily newspaper that the Balfour Declaration was "the greatest crime that the international community is responsible for."

 

In its continuing attempt to rewrite history, PA television reported, "Today is the 94th anniversary of the cursed Balfour promise, in which those who had no ownership (Britain) permitted those who had no right (the Jews) to establish a national homeland for the Jews in Palestine."

 

A PA reported chimed in on cue, “They [the Jews] took the place of the original inhabitants, conquered their land, and turned them into refugees throughout the world. A promise that brings a mark of shame upon humanity because it [humanity] ignored the colonialist frenzy - not only in Palestine but in the Arab homeland, from east to west... (INN, 11/28/2011).


Abbas Reaffirms UN Statehood Bid: It's Our Legitimate Right: Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas reaffirms his bid for UN membership. "It's our legitimate right," he claims. Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas reaffirmed his bid for UN membership on Tuesday, saying it should complement peace negotiations, provided that Israel is prepared to negotiate on the basis of the 1949 armistice lines.


According to a report by The Associated Press, Abbas said the PA’s decision to apply to join the United Nations “is our legitimate right” based on the 1947 UN resolution to form a Jewish and an Arab state in the region (INN,
11/30/2011 ). 

After the Holocaust, November 29th 1947, the UN General Assembly, passed Resolution 181 partitioning the land of Israel into two states, one Jewish and one Arab (Trans-Jordan). This has also  already been done, and the Arabs rejected it, because they could not accept a Jewish state and  because they wanted the entire country for themselves!

 

A Return to the 1947 Partition Plan? All of the Arab states voted against the UN Partition Plan - UN Resolution 181 on the partition of Palestine - that was adopted by the General Assembly on Nov. 29, 1947. Now, 64 years later, the Palestinians have second thoughts about their rejection of the plan. The UN Partition Plan unambiguously calls for the establishment of a Jewish state. This provision is contrary to the Palestinian Authority's stated position that it will never recognize Israel as a Jewish state.

 

The Partition Plan specifically states, "No discrimination of any kind shall be made between the inhabitants on the ground of race, religion, language or sex." "Arabs and Jews who...reside in Palestine...shall...become citizens of the state in which they are resident and enjoy full civil and political rights." Yet PA President Mahmoud Abbas has repeatedly made it clear that there is no room for Jews in the future state called Palestine. UN Resolution 181 calls for the establishment of a special international regime for the City of Jerusalem, which it defines as including Bethlehem. Are the Palestinians really willing to give up Arab control of Bethlehem? (Winnipeg Jewish Review).

The Palestinians Resurrect the Partition Plan : UN General Assembly Resolution 181 - the famous Partition Plan - was approved on Nov. 29, 1947. In 1999 the Palestinians were to claim that, according to Resolution 181, "both parts of Jerusalem - west and east - are occupied territory." However, Resolution 181 proposed internationalizing Jerusalem only as an interim measure, for ten years, after which there was to be a referendum. Given the Jewish majority in Jerusalem, it was expected that the city would then be annexed to the Jewish state.
 

It is also important to recall that UN General Assembly resolutions are only recommendations and do not bind member states under international law. Moreover, the Arab states rejected Resolution 181 in its entirety, especially its call for establishing a Jewish state.

Israel's first prime minister, David Ben-Gurion, understood the moral importance of Resolution 181 because of its recognition of the right of the Jewish people to a state. But on Dec. 3, 1949, at the end of Israel's War of Independence, Ben-Gurion told the Knesset he opposed calls for Jerusalem's internationalization: "We can no longer regard the UN Resolution of 29 November as having any moral force. After the UN failed to implement its own resolution, we regard the resolution of 29 November concerning Jerusalem to be null and void."

Furthermore, it was not the UN that legally created the Jewish state with Resolution 181, but rather Israel's own declaration of independence in 1948. (Dore Gold, Israel Hayom, Nov. 25, 2011). 

Re-Enactment on Tuesday of UN Recognition of Israel : The World Zionist Organization is staging in Jerusalem on Tuesday (today) a re-enactment of the November 29, 1947 recognition of Israel by the United Nations. The dramatic vote in the United Nations 64 years ago gave the British Empire one year to leave the country it had occupied since 1917, after the fall of the Ottoman Empire.

Op-Ed: Nov. 29, 1947: UN Partition Vote Day: Video and Quiz: The Jews accepted the partition plan for a miniscule Israel because it used the word "state". They even named a Jerusalem Street "29th of November". The Arabs said no, the state was declared and the Arabs invaded. Is that all you know? Read on (INN, November 29, 2011).

UN Resolution 181 - The Partition Plan: A "Green Light" for Jewish Statehood - A 'Dead' Blueprint for Peace
N ovember 29, 1947 By
Eli E. Hertz:
Resolution 181 was the last of a series of recommendations that had been drawn up over the years by the Mandator and by international commissions, plans designed to reach an historic compromise between Arabs and Jews in western Palestine. The first was in 1922 when Great Britain unilaterally partitioned Palestine. This did not satisfy the Arabs who wanted the entire country to be Arab.

Every scheme since 1922 was rejected by the Arab side, including decidedly pro-Arab ones because these plans recognized Jews as a nation and gave Jewish citizens of Mandate Palestine political representation (Myths and Facts).

Haniyeh calls new Tunisian PM, invites him to Palestine: Jabali, a leader in the Tunisian political party Ennahda, applauded the Palestinian people for their struggle, saying that their steadfastness provided inspiration to Tunisia and the Arab world (Ma'an News, 28/11/2011).


Tunisia: Islamist Prime Minister Nominee Calls for Restored Caliphate, Liberation of Jerusalem : The Tunisian Islamist party Ennahda invited Houda Naim, a Hamas member of the Palestinian Legislative Council based in Gaza, to speak at a rally in Sousse on Sunday, the first time a member of Hamas has addressed the Tunisian public. Naim stated her hope that the "liberation" of Tunisia would lead to the liberation of Palestine.

At the event, Ennahda's general secretary Hammadi Jebali, recently proposed by the party to be the new prime minister of Tunisia, declared that the occasion was "a divine moment in a new state, and in, hopefully, a 6th caliphate," referring to the historical system of Islamic monarchies. Jebali also echoed Naim's words, stating, "The liberation of Tunisia will, God willing, bring about the liberation of Jerusalem" (Tunisia Live).

 

Tunisia's Ghannouchi: "I Quite Like" Hamas' Kassam Rockets:  Rachid Ghannouchi, the leader of the Islamic Tunisian political party Ennahda, told Al Hiwar Arabic TV on Feb. 22, 2009: "I quite like the Kassam rockets. During the war [referring to the Israeli incursion into Gaza] they did not kill anyone on the other side, they scared them only. It is a civilized weapon as it serves the purpose, it creates balance in power" (Ofcom-UK).

Tunisia's New Constitution to Oppose Ties with Israel: The new Tunisian government is gearing up to ratify a new constitution that includes a section condemning Zionism and ruling out any friendly ties with Israel. Aviva Raz-Schechter, deputy director-general of the Middle East Division of the Israel Foreign Ministry, said that if the anti-Israel clause was inserted, "It will inevitably affect other Middle Eastern countries as well" (Israel Hayom).

Islamist Group Hosts Tunisia's Muslim Brotherhood Leader on Capitol Hill : The Muslim Public Affairs Council was given space on Capitol Hill Tuesday to welcome Rachid Ghannouchi, the leader of the Ennahda, the Muslim Brotherhood affiliate that recently won the election in Tunisia.

MPAC is an Islamist group whose founders included disciples of Brotherhood founder Hassan al-Banna as well as admirers of Hizbullah. After 9/11, MPAC's current director, Salam al-Marayati, immediately pronounced that Israel should be on top of the list of suspects. Only a few months ago, in an interview with an Arab-language website, Ghannouchi called for the destruction of Israel and expressed optimism that the Jewish state would soon disappear (National Review, Nov. 29, 2011). Though hailed as a pro-democratic and moderate party by several media outlets and political figures  (Media Whitewash Ghannouchi's Radical Islamist Views), Ennahda, and its leader, have provided ample evidence to the contrary (MPAC Proud to Host Radical Tunisian Leader,IPT News, Nov. 28, 2011).

Muslim Brotherhood Holds ‘Kill the Jews’ Rally on Election Eve: Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood, which expects to win Monday’s legislative elections, held a “kill the Jews” rally in Cairo Friday. Thousands of supporters attended the pre-election rally at a mosque on the Muslim Sabbath, promising to “one day kill all the Jews” and wage war against Jerusalem’s “Judaization.” The demonstration was held on the anniversary of the United Nations’ proclamation of the 1947 partition plan that established the State of Israel and which was immediately followed by a pan-Arab war aimed at annihilating it (INN, 11/27/2011).

‘Like It or Not, Egypt is New Iran’ say Iranian Guards : Egypt is becoming the new Iran, “whether you accept it or not,” says a general of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards. As the radical Islamic Muslim Brotherhood movement waits for an expected victory in the long and drawn-out legislative electins in Egypt, Iran is looking forward to Egypt being its next cog in the Islamic Empire that it hopes for and wants to head.

"A number of major (new) Irans have been born in the region today. Egypt is a (new) Iran, whether you (the US-led West) accept it or not," reported the Iranian semi-official Fars News Agency , quoting Guards commander Major General Qassem Soleimani. Speaking to a reported crowd of 50,000 Basij forces, he addressed the United States and added, "Know that today Libya, Yemen and Bahrain are also (new) Irans. [These] "great nations will stand together against the threat" of western powers, he said (INN, 11/28/2011). 

Iran Threatens to Attack Turkey, Israel if Attacked: Iran threatens to attack both in Turkey and in Israel if the Jewish state attacks its nuclear facilities. “Should we be threatened, we will target NATO’s missile defense shield in Turkey and then hit the next targets,” Hazijzadeh was quoted as having told the Mehr news agency.
Turkey agreed in September to have the NATO anti-defense missile shield installed in its territory, prompting criticism from Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, who claimed the defense system was meant to protect Israel against Iranian missile attacks (INN, 11/27/2011).

Turkey wary of Nato missile shield: The US has asked Turkey, to host some of the radar defences and to approve the proposal for a Europe-wide defense network.Turkey is mindful of its delicate position with neighbouring Iran and has said it will refuse to sign a Nato document that names Iran as the threat in the final declaration.

Turkey also wanted to make sure that the system would in no way be used to protect Israel from attack. Anita McNaught, Al Jazeera's correspondent in Istanbul, said, "It [Turkey] wants to be clear that this system is for the defence of territories from Turkey's eastern border, westward. It wants to be sure this is not a 'proxy' defence system for Israel. "It does not want any of the intelligence gathered through this system to be shared with Israel"  (Al Jazeera, 19 Nov 2010).

Iran Threatens Israel with Missile Barrage if Attacked: Iran continues to threaten Israel, this time hinting it will hit it with up to 150,000 missiles if its nuclear facilities are attacked. Iran’s Defense Minister Brigadier General Ahmad Vahidi told the Fars news agency that Israel will not have a minimal chance of survival after attacking Iran (INN, 11/28/2011).

Ahmad Vahidi, is wanted by Interpol for participation in the 1994 terrorist attack of the Jewish community building in Buenos Aires. He was also involved in the car bombing terrorist attack of the Khobar Towers in Saudi Arabia (2006).

PA's Chairman, the White House's "white-washed" terrorist and Israel's enforced "peace partner", Abu Mazen, is a well known Holocaust denier, he financed the "Black September" attack which killed eleven Israeli athletes at the 1972 Olympic Games in Munich, Germany. He is also responsible for sending terrorists to commit the murder of 22 school children at the Maalot School Massacre, May 15, 1974. Why isn't he wanted by Interpol? See'Ambassadors of Peace'

Muslim Brotherhood Raising Jordan to Boiling Point: A growing reality of the nightmare of refugees from Iraq, from the Palestinian Authority (PA) and from Syria swarming across the borders to Jordan, along with the growingly influential Muslim Brotherhood, threaten the kingdom’s stability, researchers report.

Although Jordan would be pleased with Assad's demise if it weakens ties with Iran, “the fact that the Muslim Brotherhood in Jordan has sided with the Syrian anti-government forces…puts King Abdullah in an awkward situation. The specter of Jordanian and Syrian Muslim Brotherhood cooperation no doubt raises concerns in the Jordanian palace” (INN, Nov, 29, 2011).

Ezekiel 38:21-23 "And I will call for a sword against him throughout all my mountains, saith the Lord GOD; every man's sword shall be against his brother. And I will plead against him (Gog the Prince of Magog) with pestilence and with blood; and I will cause to rain upon him, and upon his bands, and upon the many peoples that are with him, an overflowing shower, and great hailstones, fire, and brimstone.Thus will I magnify Myself, and sanctify Myself, and I will make Myself known in the eyes of many nations; and they shall know that I am the LORD." Zechariah 14:12-14, Zephaniah 3:8-9.

Haggai 2:21-22 "I will shake the heavens and the earth; and I will overthrow the throne of kingdoms, and I will destroy the strength of the kingdoms of the nations; and I will overthrow the chariots, and those that ride in them; and the horses and their riders shall come down, every one by the sword of his brother." Michah Ch. 5.
Ezekiel 39:20-21 "And ye shall be filled at My table with horses and horsemen, with mighty men, and with all men of war, saith the Lord GOD. And I will set My glory among the nations, and all the nations shall see My judgment that I have executed, and My hand that I have laid upon them..."

Psalms 46:3-12 "Nations were in tumult, kingdoms were moved; He uttered His voice, the earth melted. The LORD of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our high tower. Selah Come, behold the works of the LORD, who hath made desolations (devastations) in the earth (But the land of Israel is fruitful).

Therefore will we not fear, though the earth do change, and though the mountains (nations) be moved into the heart of the seas (falling prey to other powers); Though the waters thereof roar and foam, though the mountains shake at the swelling thereof. Selah

He maketh wars to cease unto the end of the earth (all the lands of the nations will be at peace with Israel).; He breaketh the bow, and cutteth the spear in sunder; He burneth the (war) chariots  (of the nations) in the fire. 'Let be (desist all nations from further marching upon Jerusalem), and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations (with the vengeance which He will wreak among the nations), I will be exalted in the earth.' The LORD of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our high tower. Selah 
Although, the Messianic Era will bring peace, it will begin with the war of Gog and Magog (Psalm 45). But God will shield Israel, as He shields all distraught people who seek His support.

PLO's Shaath Hospitalized after Heart Failure: Fatah terror organization's Nabil Shaath, 73, was aboard a plane when he felt chest pains. Shaath had been visiting Denmark, Sweden and Belgium to garner diplomatic support for the recognition of a state of Palestine at the United Nations.

Israelis are familiar with Shaath as a representative of the PLO since the Oslo Accords that gave Fatah legitimacy in official Israeli eyes. He doggedly refuses to recognize Israel as a Jewish state and has said several times that the PA will not relent in the matter of recognizing Israel as Jewish. 

In an Al Jazeera interview two months ago he said: "I've seen how peace could work ... I've seen how the Israelis can also be drawn into hope, a real hope that brings real results"  (INN,  11/28/2011).

The False Hope: "The endeavour to create a Palestinian state between Jordan and Israel, the socalled ”peace process,” in which one is fighting to deprive the Jewish people of their historical homeland, cultural heritage and national identity is a show in denial of reality. Only Israel wants a Palestinian state. The Arabs want the conflict.

At the same time the Palestinian leaders have to take into consideration their promise to satisfy their voters with the annihilation of Israel, they also have to keep alive the hope for peace among the western donor nations. This is the explanation for the PA continuing to speak in two languages. Our leaders think they are donating toward "peace" (Attributed to; Michal Rachel Suissa, Senter Mot Antisemittisme).

"The heart is deceitful above all things, and when it is sick, who will recognize it?, I, the Lord, search the heart, test the kidneys, to give everyone according to his ways, according to the fruit of his deeds" (Jeremiah 17:9-10).

Literally, "kidneys and heart," is an oft-used metaphor for thoughts, feelings, the mind (Jeremiah 11:20, 12:1-4). God can inflict illness to make the victim mend his ways, thereby saving his life in the process (Job 33:15-30, 38:36, Psalm 51:8, Isaiah 28:17).
