3 Palestinians killed as daily violence grinds on – CBS 

We have been talking a lot lately about media coverage of Palestinian terror attacks lately. Over 30 Israelis have been killed individually in the last four months by the ongoing “knife intifada”. This week it escalated to the use of semi-automatic weapons when three terrorists intended to murder many at the Damascus Gate in Jerusalem. A nineteen year old female Israeli guard was killed and another wounded, but the killers were killed.

Yet, CBS used the above headline on their initial story! Here is a reprint of an excellent article from Israel Today Magazine (which I highly recommend).

The mainstream international media on Wednesday again demonstrated its outrageous bias against Israel in reporting on the terrorist attack near the Damascus Gate of Jerusalem’s Old City.

The culprit this time around was the American television network CBS, whose news website headlined its report of the incident “3 Palestinians killed as daily violence grinds on”.

It’s fairly simple to ascertain the goal of such an elusive headline.

The initial impression most readers would get is that the three Palestinians in question were the victims. And since so many news consumers these days merely scan headlines, they would have walked away believing that.

The problem is that the Palestinians were in fact the perpetrators.

An online outcry resulted in CBS later changing the headline to “Israeli police kill 3 alleged Palestinian attackers”. It was subsequently altered again to “Palestinians kill Israeli officer, wound another before being killed”.

At no point did CBS publicly apologize or clarify its change.

Israeli media officials called for all Israelis to denounce CBS’s blatant bias as loudly as possible, while Foreign Ministry spokesman Emmanuel Nahshon called the fraudulent headline “unprecedented chutzpah.”

This debacle has provided an opportunity to again highlight why it is so important to find a reliable source of news from Israel.

The news must be read with a critical eye, knowing that important elements were probably omitted, perhaps purposefully so. Our mission at Israel Today is to fill in those gaps, to provide the stories and angles that the mainstream media left out so that you can form a more complete and clear picture of what is really happening in the Holy Land.

Tailwind for Terror

30 01 2016

Dry Bones Ban Ki-MoonUN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon showed his bias and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu condemned his words this week in a heated exchange.

Netanyahu blasts UN’s Ban: “Your remarks are a tailwind for terror Speaking to the UN Security Council in a session on the current situation in the Middle East, Ban condemns terror wave, but says it is ‘human nature to react to occupation’… Netanyahu accused UN Secretary- General Ban Ki-moon on Tuesday of supporting Palestinian terrorism.

“It is human nature to react to occupation, which often serves as a potent incubator of hate and extremism,” Ban had told a Security Council meeting in New York.

In what became a war of words, Netanyahu shot back: “The secretary-general’s remarks provide a tailwind for terrorism. There is no justification for terrorism. Those Palestinians who murder do not want to build a state, they want to destroy a state and they say this openly.”

Ban made his remarks on the same day that terrorist victim Shlomit Krigman, 23, was buried in Jerusalem. The young woman was fatally stabbed on Monday evening by two Palestinian terrorists. Jerusalem Post 1-26-16

Perilous Times and Perilous Men
But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away! 2 Timothy 3:1-5




Breathtaking Boycott

26 01 2016

Israel boycottThere has been a growing anti-Israel, anti-Semitic boycott of Jewish products for several years. However it has now sunk to unprecedented depths of depravity. The BDS (boycott, divest and sanction) movement has been mainly on university campuses and some church denominations tainted by the error of replacement theology.

Now, 343 scholars from the United Kingdom called on their peers to boycott Israeli academic institutions in an ad they published in The Guardian. In the text of the petition, which is called “a commitment by UK scholars to the rights of Palestinians,” the academics pledged not to publicly cooperate with universities and colleges in the Jewish state, although they said they would continue to communicate with individual Israeli scholars. Jerusalem Post 10-27-15

Israel is working to overcome “an upcoming vote by the American Anthropological Association in which its 12,000 members will vote on whether to adopt a boycott and refrain from formal collaborations with Israeli academic institutions.” Jerusalem Post 1-20-16

But even worse, 71 doctors from the United Kingdom have now called for a boycott: The Knesset panel also heard from Dr. Zeev Feldman, chairman of the Israeli Medical Association World Fellowship and president of the Israeli Neurosurgical Society, who revealed that the latest boycott call comes from a group of 71 British doctors … Feldman said the doctors penned a letter last week to the World Medical Association seeking to expel the Israeli Medical Association, claiming that Israeli doctors carried out “medical torture” on Palestinian patients. Jerusalem Post

This is lunacy. Consider the record of Jews winning Nobel prizes.  Nobel Prizes have been awarded to over 850 individuals, of whom at least 170 individuals (20%) were Jews, although Jews comprise less than 0.2% of the world’s population. Wikipedia

Meanwhile, Muslims comprise over 23% of world population and have had 12 Nobel Prizes. (One of these was a Peace Prize given to Yasser Arafat, the infamous Palestinian terrorist): As of 2015, twelve Nobel Prize winners have been Muslims. More than half of the twelve Muslim Nobel laureates were awarded the prize in the 21st century. Seven of the twelve winners have been awarded the Nobel Peace Prize, including a controversial award to Yasser Arafat. Wikipedia

Jews have found cures for many diseases. Do the British doctors also want to refuse this medicine? Here is a partial list: Syphilis, Gonorrhea, Heart Disease, Headaches, Typhus, Diabetes, Mental Disorders, Polio, Convulsions and Tuberculosis.

We can only pray to God for mercy for Israel, His chosen ones. Pray for the peace of Jerusalem

God’s Choice

21 01 2016

Blessing Israel cover photoIsrael was chosen by Yehovah God for a reason. It was His choice. To question the choice is to challenge God. Here is the shocker. He chose Israel as His means of blessing all the other nations of the earth. God did not choose them as a way of excluding the nations, but as His method of inclusion. How did the nations react? They were jealous, resentful and covetous of the blessing. He did not choose them because they were better, they were better because He chose them.

Yet God’s original plan is clearly spoken in Genesis.

“I will bless those who bless you, and I will curse him who curses you; and in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed. Genesis 12:3

“Also your descendants shall be as the dust of the earth; you shall spread abroad to the west and the east, to the north and the south; and in you and in your seed all the families of the earth shall be blessed. Genesis 28:14

Now it shall come to pass in the latter days that the mountain of Yehovah’s house shall be established on the top of the mountains, and shall be exalted above the hills; and all nations shall flow to it. Isaiah 2:2

What motivates Yehovah? Did God bring Jews back to Israel from all over the world to just destroy them? No, that is the mantra of Iran. Did God originally choose Israel as a means to reject the world? No, His motive was to pave the way for all the nations to be blessed through Israel. Did God later choose the Church so He could find a way to completely and permanently reject Israel? No! He never gave up on them. He vowed to restore them and we have seen it in our lifetimes. Blessing Israel Ch. 13

After the fall, God kept His promised seed of the Messiah passing from generation to generation from Adam through Seth and on to Noah. However, the rest of mankind had become so wicked that the flood took them all away except righteous Noah and his family. After the flood, God singled out Abraham who was in the chosen lineage. Yehovah blessed him and narrowed the favor to Abraham’s son Isaac and his son Jacob (whose name was changed to Israel). He even narrowed it further by declaring the seed would come through David’s lineage.

It is at this point in God’s redemptive story, that an interesting phenomenon surfaces. As God chooses Israel for special blessing, the other nations become resentful and jealous. Never mind that in God’s heart Israel would become the salvation of the nations. The Gentiles could not see that far down the road and began attacking Israel to destroy her, an intent that continues into the 21st Century! Remember John 3:16 tells us God loved the world so much that He gave His Son.

Rather than God’s choice of Israel eliminating salvation for the other nations, in God’s heart it was the means of saving them. He intended to bless all nations through Israel! Blessing Israel Ch. 3

God’s End Game

18 01 2016

christian_zionismWe have reached the climax of the ages. It is crunch time. I mean that in the clearest possible prophetic declaration. This is not symbolic. We are living in the last generation. I believe it with all of my heart and explained where the Bible teaches it in my book, Generation Last. This is no shameless plug, I am serious.

Through history God has been building up His Plan and preparing His people for their roles. Abraham was ready. Moses was ready. David was ready. Jesus was ready. This is our time, and we are ready! God is with us, God is for us. We are important in our places as He establishes Zion. This is not just another century, or just another millennium. This is the End Game. Fasten your spiritual seatbelt.

We can absolutely trust God to do His part. YEHOVAH GOD IS READY! He is advancing us forward into our pre-selected positions. This is the day for the glory of God to shine in us.

Arise, shine; for your light has come! And the glory of Yehovah is risen upon you. Isaiah 60:1

(The above quote is from my newest book, Blessing Israel, Chapter 13 – The End Game.)

I shared this excerpt because of an article in Israel Today: Is ‘Christian Zionism’ Becoming a Dirty Word?

The author discusses the concept of Christian Zionism and its disfavor in many parts of “Christendom.” Since I call myself a voice of Christian Zionists, I wanted to inspire you to take up the cause and see yourself as a Zionist. It is a minority position in the world today, but since God is the #1 Zionist, I will stick with Him! Take a couple minutes and read the short article at the above link.

And remember to pray for the peace of Jerusalem!

Terror Child Abuse – PA Style

14 01 2016

Dry Bones PA educationToday we celebrate our grandson’s sixteenth birthday. We are going to see the new Star Wars movie in IMAX 3D. Yet, in Bethlehem, a completely different celebration was recently held. It was a birthday of sorts. It celebrated 51 years since the Palestine Liberation Organization’s (PLO) first terror attack. This Bethlehem parade was sponsored by the Palestinian Authority (PA), Israel’s “peace partner” for the failed “two-state solution.”

Kid-Rocket-Launcher-620x412Palestinian children holding axes, either real or fake guns and wearing mock suicide belts joined a large rally adjacent to Bethlehem last week, celebrating the 51st anniversary of the first terrorist attack by Fatah, the party led by Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas. The reception of the all-out festivity stood in marked contrast to the request issued to Christians just a month earlier by the Palestinian Authority asking them to tone down their Christmas celebrations in the town of Jesus’ birth. (The Blaze)

PA 160114_child_abuseIt was notable that while the Bethlehem-based Palestinian news agency Ma’an covered the parade extensively on its Arabic-language website, the story was completely missing from its English-language website, which is widely followed by the international press. Yet another example of the Palestinians sending out completely different messages in Arabic and English, just as the parade itself was further evidence that Israel has no Palestinian peace partner at the governmental level. (Israel Today)

This is clearly the worst form of child abuse. It is genocidal. Kids are raised to be murderers. They have no noble purpose or redeeming value. Their goal is simply to kill Jews, to destroy Israel. And the world remains silent, just as the Hitler Youth of the 1930’s. Nothing good can come of this in the natural. Only Yehovah God can redeem. It will end with the complete restoration and blessing of Israel even as all the demons of hell are rallied against her. We have “read the end of the Book,” God wins! His Messiah will come right on schedule with salvation for all who will believe in Him.

So, what should we do? Speak up for Israel and God’s plan, of course. But  pray for the salvation of Palestinians, especially the children who are being brainwashed as we speak.

But you, beloved, building yourselves up on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Spirit, keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life. And on some have compassion, making a distinction; but others save with fear, pulling them out of the fire, hating even the garment defiled by the flesh. Jude 20-23

PRAY FOR THE PEACE OF JERUSALEM!

Devout Muslim Shoots Cop in the Name of Islam

9 01 2016

Philly cop shooter edward-archerThe police news conference was crystal clear. This devout Muslim (according to his own mother), tried to execute a Philadelphia police officer in the name of Islam and the Quran in support of ISIS. This was by his own video confession.  This attempted execution was Friday night and left the heroic policeman in need of multiple surgeries to save his arm.  

Commissioner Ross says the suspect has given a full confession, saying he did it in the name of Islam. “According to him, police bend laws that are contrary to the teachings of the Quran.” Sources say the suspect’s full confession of the alleged attack was written down and recorded on video. CBS Philly

However, in the very same news conference, Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenny (D) perversely contradicted his own Police Commissioner. The Mayor tried to defend Islam in a cowardly “politically correct” denial of the stipulated truth. Here is his statement:

“In no way, shape or form does anyone in this room believe that Islam or the teachings of Islam have anything to do with what you’ve seen on that screen,” Kenney said. “That is abhorrent. It’s just terrible, and it does not represent the religion in any way, shape or form or any of its teachings. This is a criminal with a stolen gun who tried to kill one of our officers,” he added. “[It] has nothing to do with being a Muslim or following the Islamic faith.” (Click here for the video statement.)

Who made the Mayor an expert on Islam? There are millions of radical Muslims who base their entire religious ideology squarely on the Quran and Islam. What audacity for the Mayor to claim such omnipotent knowledge of Islam! We are at the point in prophetic history where official leaders blatantly lie publicly to deceive gullible people.

So, what does the Bible say? I submit two references for your consideration.

#1 – The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders, and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this reason God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie, that they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

#2 – But you have an anointing from the Holy One, and you know all things. I have not written to you because you do not know the truth, but because you know it, and that no lie is of the truth. Who is a liar but he who denies that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist who denies the Father and the Son. Whoever denies the Son does not have the Father either; he who acknowledges the Son has the Father also. 1 John 2:20-23
