Only A Matter Of Time Before US/Russian Conflict In Syria?
Is the escalating conflict in Syria setting the stage for World War III with Russia?
On Sunday, a U.S. Navy F-18 shot down a Syrian Army SU-22 near Raqqa. This represents a major escalation by U.S. forces, because this is the very first time that the U.S. military has shot down a Syrian warplane since the civil war began back in 2011. 
Needless to say, the Russians were not pleased by this at all. In fact, according to the Independent the Russians have just announced that all U.S. warplanes flying over Syria will now be treated as "targets" by the Russian military...
Russia has said it will treat US warplanes operating in parts of Syria where its air forces are also present as "targets" amid a diplomatic row caused by the downing of a Syrian jet.
The country's defence ministry said it would track US-led coalition aircraft with missile systems and military aircraft, but stopped short of saying it would shoot them down.
A hotline set up between Russia and the US to prevent mid-air collisions will also be suspended.
The Russians have some of the very best anti-aircraft systems on the entire planet, and they would be more than capable of shooting down our jets.
So let us hope that the Russians don't cross that line, because the anti-Russian hysteria in Washington would go to an entirely new level if footage of U.S. jets being blown out of the sky started running 24 hours a day on CNN, MSNBC and Fox News.

No Good Guys In Syrian Civil War - London Terrorist Fought For US Backed Rebels
Liam Clancy
Posted with permission from WND
WASHINGTON – One of the Muslim terrorists who perpetrated the London Bridge attack previously fought in a militia associated with the Free Syrian Army, a group that Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., has worked tirelessly to arm and support.
According to the London Telegraph, terror suspect Rachid Redouane fought first in the Libyan revolution under a group known as Liwa al Ummah. He later joined a militia that deployed fighters to Syria and worked alongside al-Qaida jihadists.
Liwa al Ummah was formed by an underling of Abdul Hakim Belhaj, the former emir of the al-Qaida-linked Libyan Islamic Fighting Group. The Liwa al Ummah in Syria merged with the FSA in 2012 and collaborated with al-Qaida's Syrian branch, Al-Nusra.
McCain constantly trumpets the FSA as a moderate opposition force to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's regime. The senator has parroted Elizabeth O'Bagy, a former director of a Syrian Islamic organization that helped define the Obama-era policy toward Syria.
Terror is more and more present in today's world, and the WND Superstore has the details you need to protect yourself, in "Muslim Mafia," "Islamic Terrorism," "Religion of Peace?" "Schmoozing with Terrorists," "God's War on Terror" and more.
O'Bagy claimed in a Wall Street Journal column that "Contrary to many media accounts, the war in Syria is not being waged entirely, or even predominantly, by dangerous Islamists and al-Qaida diehards."
Countless media outlets and politicians dispute that claim.
The New York Times ran a piece in 2013 outlining the dominance of jihadist groups in the fight against Assad's regime.
"In Syria's largest city, Aleppo, rebels aligned with al-Qaida control the power plant, run the bakeries and head a court that applies Islamic law," the Times begins. "Nowhere in rebel-controlled Syria is there a secular fighting force to speak of."
What do YOU think? Weigh in on the anti-Muslim terror in London
A report from the Telegraph echoes the claims, noting that the Syrian jihadists are "now the largest and best armed faction in the opposition." Consequently, the London paper says, the "more moderate elements have become progressively weaker through a lack of supplies and defection of members."
The Washington watchdog Judicial Watch, which documented the terrorist's connections to the group McCain supports, said McCain "was so smitten by O'Bagy that he read a chunk of her Wall Street Journal opinion piece – touting the FSA as a moderate opposition force – during a Senate Foreign Relations Committee hearing."
"In it, O'Bagy makes a case for U.S. military intervention in Syria by asserting that concerns about al-Qaida terrorists running the rebel operations are unfounded. After all, the United States doesn't want to support the very jihadists that want to murder its citizens."

How To Raise A Pagan Kid In A Christian Home
Are Christian parents just raising moral pagans?
Every imperfect and normal family wants their kids to turn out right. So, we establish goals for character development and try to create an environment where our kids can mature. 
Church, school, sports teams, family relationships ... each of these provides a context where our kids can learn to "love your neighbor as yourself." 
Unfortunately, our "good" objectives might have absolutely nothing to do with the gospel of Jesus Christ. And we inadvertently end up raising pagans instead of Christians.
Too many times, (Christian) parents have it as their goal to make their kids good and moral. 
It is as if the entire purpose of their family's spiritual life is to shape their children into law-abiding citizens who stay out of trouble. 
The only problem with this goal is that it runs in stark contrast to what the Bible teaches. The gospel is not about making bad people moral, but about making dead people alive. 
If we teach morality without the transforming power of the gospel and the necessity of a life fully surrendered to God's will, we are raising moral pagans.

Christian/Jewish Alliance Featured At Israel Policy Conference
The strategic importance of Christian Zionism was featured this week at the 2017 Herzliya Conference, one of Israel's most prominent annual policy summits.
Organizers describe the conference, which is hosted by the Institute for Policy and Strategy at the IDC Herzliya research college, as a platform that "facilitates and encourages an informed debate on the most pressing issues on the national and international agendas." 
Leading Israeli officials routinely address the Herzliya gathering, but one session stood out from the rest due to how it opened: with prayer.
"Heavenly Father, we thank you for this time of engagement together between Israel and the Jewish people and Christian friends...we just ask that this be productive and effective," said David Parsons, vice president and senior spokesman for the International Christian Embassy Jerusalem (ICEJ), an organization that states it "represents millions of Christians, churches, and denominations to the nation and people of Israel." 
Parsons told JNS.org, "We're excited to be here for the second year in a row, taking part in the Herzliya Conference, and being able to communicate the love of Christians to Israeli decision makers, policy makers, academics and all. It's a great privilege for us and we hope it has real practical impact for the state of Israel."
Evangelical Christianity is "the fastest-growing faith movement in the world," boasting as many as "700 million believers" and adding 50,000 new adherents daily, with each new "believer" representing another potential advocate for Israel, Parsons said.

Does God Observe Jubilees?
Christians know that the Bible is more than a collection of stories, allegories and illustrations. We know and truly believe that "all Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and it is profitable for doctrine" (I Tim. 3:16), etc.
Christians know that the things that happened to the Jews (blessings, curses, etc.) are examples or lessons for us. Paul said, "they are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the world (end of the ages) are come (I Cor. 10:11).
Christians know that "whatsoever things were written aforetime (in the Old Testament) were written for our learning, that we through patience and comfort of the scriptures might have hope" (Rom. 15:4).
"Whatsoever things were written" includes the stories, the history, the poetry, the Feasts of the Lord, the Jubilees, all of it. The whole Bible was written to give God's people hope.
Christians know that the things that Moses made in the wilderness (tabernacle, Ark of the Covenant, Table of Showbread, Golden Lampstand, etc.) were made "according to the pattern" that God showed him at Mt. Sinai (Heb. 8:5; Ex. 25:40).
The service of the priests and the things that were made were a copy or a shadow of what is in heaven (Heb. 8:5). That is why God warned Moses to follow the pattern carefully.

How The 6 Day War Birthed The Temple Mount Movement
On June 6th 1967, the now famous words of Paratroop Brigade Commander Motti Gur resounded across the nation of Israel: 'The Temple Mount is in our hands'.
Looking back at the 6 day war of 1967, many remember the emotional pictures of Israeli troops in awe as they arrived at the Western Wall. 
On top of the wall, and mostly out of sight of the cameras, dramatic scenes were also taking place on the Temple Mount itself - scenes which would lay the foundation for the modern day movement to rebuild the Temple. 
Looking Back at '67
On June 6th 1967, the now famous words of Paratroop Brigade Commander Motti Gur resounded across the nation of Israel: 'The Temple Mount is in our hands'. 
Rugged and war-weary Israeli soldiers who had been engaged in a battle for the very survival of the Jewish state, found themselves unexpectedly conquering the Old City of Jerusalem. 
The soldiers streamed to the Western Wall towards which the Jewish people had prayed ever since the destruction of the Temple in 70 A.D.  Even secular Israeli soldiers who had never prayed a prayer were seen openly weeping and asking their fellow soldiers how to pray.

Israel Concerned As Iran Quickly Filling Vacuum Left By ISIS Collapse
image: http://www.prophecynewswatch.com/images/recent/iranvsisraelmarch14.jpg
News Image BY BEN COHEN/ALGEMENIER JUNE 21, 2017 
As tensions between the US and Iran escalate in Syria, concern is growing in Israel that the Tehran regime is pressing ahead with its goal of carving out a land corridor stretching through Iraq and Syria to the border with the Jewish state, a leading expert on the region said on Tuesday.
Jonathan Spyer -- a senior research fellow at the Global Research in International Affairs Center (GLORIA) in Israel who has reported extensively from Syria -- told The Algemeiner that Iran's ultimate goal was to "complete a contiguous corridor from Iran itself via Iraq and Syria to Lebanon and the border with Israel."
The latest flashpoint for US forces in the region came on Tuesday. A US F-15E fighter downed an armed Iranian drone near Al-Tanf in Syria, where the US is training Syrian rebels fighting against ISIS. 
The area is perilously close to territory controlled by Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and his Iranian and Russian allies, and has been the site of armed skirmishes over the last month between Assad's troops and US-allied forces.
Another Iranian drone was brought down in southern Syria on June 9, while two days ago the US military shot down a Syrian jet conducting a bombing raid close to positions held by US-allied forces around Raqqa, the capital of Islamic State's so-called "caliphate."
"The demonstrated hostile intent and actions of pro-regime forces toward coalition and partner forces in Syria conducting legitimate counter-ISIS operations will not be tolerated," a statement from the Pentagon said, following today's drone incident.

Palestinian "Culture Of Peace" Praises Terror Attack

News Image BY BASSAM TAWIL/GATESTONE INSTITUTE JUNE 21, 2017
Share this article:
    
For many Palestinians, the stabbing murder of a 23-year-old Israeli Border Police officer in Jerusalem on June 16 is an act of "heroism" that proves that the "revolution against the Zionist entity will continue until the liberation of Palestine, from the (Mediterranean) sea to the (Jordan) river."

For many Palestinians, the three terrorists who murdered the young woman, Hadas Malka, are "heroes" and "martyrs" who will be rewarded by Allah in Paradise.

President Mahmoud Abbas's Palestinian Authority (PA), which is funded by Americans and Europeans, has once again chosen to maintain silence following a terror attack perpetrated by Palestinians. 

This silence of Abbas and his PA leadership, specifically their refusal to condemn the terror attack, can only be interpreted as an endorsement of the killing of Jews.

Moreover, in a move reminiscent of a demented Alice in Wonderland, Abbas's ruling Fatah faction, which is often described by Westerners as "moderate" and "pragmatic," publicly blasted Israel for killing the three terrorists who murdered the policewoman and wounded several others.

In a statement published in Ramallah shortly after the terror attack, Fatah "condemned the Israeli occupation forces for killing three young Palestinian men in East Jerusalem." 

It said that the killing of the three terrorists "proves that the Israeli government is pursuing its policy of escalation." Fatah called on the international community to "seriously look into providing protection for the defenseless Palestinian people."

The Fatah statement failed to mention that the three Palestinian "young men" were armed with knives and a homemade submachine gun. Nor did Fatah mention a word about the Border Police officer who was stabbed to death in the terror attack.
Such a statement could never have been published without the approval of Abbas and his top cronies in Ramallah. They even seem to have endorsed the Fatah communiqué by publishing it on the website of the PA's official news agency, Wafa. 
This agency is managed and funded by the PA, which also appoints the editors and journalists working there.
This is the twisted logic of Abbas and his people: How dare Israeli police officers shoot terrorists armed with knives and a machinegun and prevent them from killing more Jews?
Fatah spokesperson Osama Qawassmeh went as far as accusing Israel of committing a "war crime" by killing the terrorists and thwarting a bigger attack. 
He called on the international community to condemn Israel for the "cold-blooded" killing of the three terrorists in Jerusalem, dubbing it a "cruel crime."

Can We Know When Jesus Will Return?

News Image BY BRITT GILLETTE/ENDTIMESBIBLEPROPHECY JUNE 20, 2017
Share this article:
Can we know when Jesus will return? No. When it comes to the exact timing of His return, we can't know. Jesus Himself said "no man knows the day or the hour of my return, not even myself. Only my Father in heaven knows" (Mark 13:32). 
Jesus reiterated this concept when He said He would come like a thief in the night "when least expected" (Matthew 24:43-44). This idea, coupled with the statement "no one can know the day or the hour" of His return, has led many Christians to believe they can't know anything about the timing of His return. 

After all, if Jesus comes like a thief in the night when least expected, how could you know when He's coming?  
That's a good question. And while it's true we can't know the day or the hour, the idea no one has a clue as to whether it's tomorrow or a 1,000 years from now is just plain wrong. 
The Bible is clear we can know the general "season" of His return.
Like a Thief in the Night
Many people who believe we can't know anything about the timing of Christ's return base their belief on the idea Jesus "will come like a thief in the night." Jesus did say He would come unexpectedly, like a thief in the night (Matthew 24:43-44). And Paul said the same thing (1 Thessalonians 5:2).

London March Fly's Hezbollah Flag, Blame Zionists For London Tower Fire

Share this article:
Hundreds of anti-Israel protesters marched through the streets of central London on Sunday on the annual "Al Quds (Jerusalem) Day" demonstration convened by the Islamic Human Rights Commission (IHRC), a British Muslim organization with close ties to the Iranian regime.
At a rally outside the US Embassy following the march, one speaker blamed this week's tragic fire at west London's Grenfell Tower public housing project on  "Zionists."
"Some of the biggest supporters of the Conservative Party are Zionists," the speaker ranted. "They are responsible for the murder of the people in Grenfell. The Zionist supporters of the Tory Party."
Many of the marchers brandished signs calling for a boycott of the State of Israel. A number of flags of the Lebanese Islamist terror organization Hezbollah were also in evidence, including one at the front of the protest that was tied atop a Palestinian flag.
An energetic counter-rally organized by British Jewish organizations under the banner "Stand Against Hate" was staged close to the route of the march. Protesters waved Israeli flags and chanted "terrorists, off our streets."
The counter-rally was addressed by Kay Wilson, who survived a terrorist attack in Israel in 2010.
"It is a racist slur to say that all Muslims are terrorists," Wilson said. "However, it is deluded, dangerous and disingenuous to claim that terrorism has absolutely nothing to do with Islam."

BBC Supporting Incitement? Israeli Prime Minister Blasts For Misleading Headline
image: http://www.prophecynewswatch.com/images/recent/israellivesjune202017.jpg
News Image BY JNS.ORG JUNE 20, 2017
Share this article:   
Following complaints by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu over a BBC headline on the recent Palestinian terror attacks in Jerusalem, the British news organization recanted and apologized.

The Islamic State and Hamas terror groups both claimed responsibility for Friday's deadly attack in Jerusalem's Old City, carried out by three Palestinian terrorists, which killed Israeli Border Police Staff Sgt. Major Hadas Malka, 23, at Damascus Gate, and left two others injured. 
The terrorists were killed by security services. Malka was stabbed to death.
The BBC's original headline and tweet read, "Three Palestinians killed after deadly stabbing in Jerusalem," which omitted the fact that it occurred in response to the fatal stabbing of an Israeli police officer.
Netanyahu called on Israel's Ministry of Foreign Affairs to censure the BBC for the misleading headline. The Israeli embassy in London filed a complaint, citing the network's "false reports" and "refusal to use the word terror when it comes to attacks on Israeli citizens." 
Following the complaint, the BBC removed the offending tweet and changed the article headline to, "Israeli policewoman stabbed to death in Jerusalem." 
"We accept that our original headline did not appropriately reflect the nature of the events and subsequently changed it. Whilst there was no intention to mislead our audiences, we regret any offense caused," the BBC said in a statement. 
Also expressing outrage over the BBC headline choice was President Donald Trump's eldest son, Donald Trump Jr., who tweeted, "You mean after they stabbed a female Israeli police officer to death... right? This is as close to being misleading as possible," Trump Jr. replied.

Marriage Mending: How Churches Can Rescue Marriages In Trouble

Divorces are sky-high in Tinseltown, and we can't blame Liza Minnelli for all of them. Find out how we can avoid their marital failures.
Do Hollywood people know what marriage is all about?
Let's count up the splits just in 2017. Scarlett Johansson and her husband Romain Dauriac broke up after just two years of marriage. Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck held it together for ten years and three kids before deciding to untie the knot. David Schwimmer and Zoe Buckman hung on for seven years.
And while we're at it, who can forget the ten-million-dollar wedding between Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries, whose marriage lasted just 72 days? Not kidding.
So what do Hollywood marriages teach us? The answer, according to NewsMax writer Juliette Fairley, is to get a good prenup.
I hope we can do better than that.  And in fact, I know someone who DOES provide much better advice for protecting marriages: Mike McManus, founder of Marriage Savers.
Mike and his wife, Harriet, spend much of their time traveling the country teaching churches what they can do to protect marriages--even before couples exchange vows.
The first thing an engaged couple ought to do, they say, is take part in a premarital diagnostic program called PREPARE.  The couple separately answers a lengthy questionnaire, and then meets six times with a mentor couple--one that's been married for decades. 
The goal is to help the couple identify the strengths and weaknesses of their relationship and learn how to better communicate and resolve their differences.
Of those who complete PREPARE, some 20 percent abandon their wedding plans--which is actually good: better a broken engagement than a broken marriage. But an amazing 90-plus percent of those who do marry are still together twenty years later, says McManus.
Marriage Savers offers other programs, as well: RESTORE helps pull couples back from the brink of divorce. It's taught by those whose own marriages nearly crashed and burned. For instance, as Mike notes, "A couple who recovered from adultery can tell a couple in crisis, 'This is what we did to restore trust.'" Four out of five couples who took part in RESTORE were able to mend their marriages.

Violent Words Have Turned To Violent Deeds: The Rise Of The Radical Left

From violent campus protests to the shooting of a congressman, the violent, radical left is rising. But this should not surprise us at all. The handwriting has been on the wall for years.
What else do you expect when those who believe a child should have a mother and a father are likened to the KKK, Nazis, the Taliban, and ISIS? What else do you expect when Christian conservatives have been branded dangerous enemies?
To repeat what I've shared before,
Already in May, 2005, John McCandlish Phillips, formerly a Pulitzer Prize-winning New York Times reporter, pointed out how newspapers like the Washington Post and the Times told their readers that evangelicals and traditional Catholics were engaging in a "jihad" against America.

Markos Moulitsas, founder of the radically left-leaning Dailykos.com, wrote a whole book in 2010 in which he accused conservative Christians of being the "American Taliban," which in turn reflected the sentiments of some Californians who opposed the Proposition 8, pro-marriage bill in 2008 and who carried signs reading: Prop 8 = American Taliban; and, 52 percent = Nazi (this referred to the 52-48 percent vote in favor of Prop 8); and, Don't Silence the Christians, Feed Them 2 the Lions.
My fellow believers, don't stick your heads in the sand and ignore this.
People don't just hate you. They see you as downright dangerous, and that in itself is dangerous.
Really now, do you think people who compare you to ISIS and the Nazis do not look at you as a real threat? Do you think they can hold up signs calling for you to be thrown to the lions without holding some genuine animosity towards you? And do you think that people who express themselves in such sick and ugly terms would be upset if someone actually did you harm?
To quote again from my previous article (which was published September, 2015, and drew on developments I had been tracking since 2004):
As Maggie Gallagher pointed out earlier this year, those who express extreme hatred towards conservative Christians in America "tend to hold relatively high levels of social power," citing a recent book on "Christianophobia" by sociologists George Yancey and David A. Williamson.

We have not been crying wolf. We have not been exaggerating the danger. The unthinkable is now reality in Canada. And it could be coming to America next.
In 2012, headlines announced, "Homeschooling families can't teach homosexual acts sinful in class says Alberta government."
As the article explained, "Under Alberta's new Education Act, homeschoolers and faith-based schools will not be permitted to teach that homosexual acts are sinful as part of their academic program, says the spokesperson for Education Minister Thomas Lukaszuk."
So, in the privacy of your own home, as you teach and instruct your own children, you would be forbidden by law to teach them what the Bible said about homosexual practice. And how, pray tell, was the government planning to monitor this?
In 2015, Dawn Stefanowicz, herself the child of a gay father who died of AIDS, raised her voice as well. The headline to her article read, "A Warning from Canada: Same-Sex Marriage Erodes Fundamental Rights."
She wrote, "I want to warn America to expect severe erosion of First Amendment freedoms if the US Supreme Court mandates same-sex marriage. The consequences have played out in Canada for ten years now, and they are truly Orwellian in nature and scope.
"In Canada, freedoms of speech, press, religion, and association have suffered greatly due to government pressure. The debate over same-sex marriage that is taking place in the United States could not legally exist in Canada today. Because of legal restrictions on speech, if you say or write anything considered 'homophobic' (including, by definition, anything questioning same-sex marriage), you could face discipline, termination of employment, or prosecution by the government."
She was not exaggerating. In fact, she may have understated her case. The latest headlines from Canada announce something even more Orwellian: "Canada's New Law Lets Government Take Children Away If Parents Don't Accept Their Gender Identity."
What exactly does this mean?

Japan Imposes Sweeping Pre-Crime Surveillance Law Ahead Of 2020 Olympics

With the latest spate of terror attacks we are beginning to witness supposedly democratic countries take increasingly tyrannical positions in the name of security.
Yesterday, Germany made it clear that they were willing to eradicate basic civil liberties by forcing the surveillance of smartphone apps and communications as well as absurdly permitting children as young as 6-years-old to be fingerprinted.
England, of course having been the direct target of terrorism over the course of weeks, has taken so far the most draconian position of moving to completely curtail Internet freedom, despite legal experts voicing their concerns about eradicating free speech as well as the limited effectiveness of such measures.
Japan is the latest to join the move toward a new level of government control over every aspect of their citizens' lives in the Orwellian vision to protect freedom by removing it.
Bloomberg reports that,
Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe's government passed controversial legislation that gives prosecutors the power to monitor and arrest people in the planning stages of crimes. (emphasis added)
On the surface, when applied to the planning of bona fide terrorist activities, it appears reasonable. 
However, the new measures will apply to 277 types of crimes which include some very pedestrian offenses hardly seeming worthy of pervasive government surveillance and new powers -- like copyright violations (???).
Opponents to the new legislation say it is the latest round of Prime Minister Shinzo Abe's desire to overhaul Japan's constitution, a charge that stems back to at least 2013 when he granted a very American provision to the government to hide information under the label of "state secrets."
In 2015 Abe passed the so-called "defense and security" bills which removed previous restrictions that were imposed on the role of the Japanese military; it sparked massive protests across the country as citizens feared a return to Japan's imperial past.
And, again, people turned out en masse to protest Shinzo Abe's latest legislation:

Katy Perry Talks About Evil: Why Sentimentality Is No Response to Terrorism

I love Dr. Seuss, but in the real world, joining hands and singing a musical number is not an effective strategy against evil.
Just over a year ago, Omar Mateen, claiming allegiance to the Islamic State, gunned down 49 people at an Orlando night club. It was the worst terrorist attack on U.S. soil since 9/11. And in Europe, there have been terror attacks in Paris, Brussels, Nice, Berlin, and London.
Only one word describes the sort of carnage being perpetrated by radical Islamists: "Evil."  These attacks, which deliberately targeted innocents, all in the name of God, are among the vilest crimes imaginable.
And it only makes it more troubling that these attacks continue to take place in a time when the West is least equipped with the moral framework necessary to describe them, much less respond to them.
I'm thinking of cringe-worthy responses by celebrities like singer Katy Perry, who said on a talk show after the Manchester bombing that "the greatest thing we could do is just unite and love on each other, and like, no barriers, no borders...we all need to just co-exist."
Jodi Picoult one-upped Perry when she took to Twitter and compared the attack to Dr. Seuss' "How the Grinch Stole Christmas." "When terror attacks happen," she wrote, "I think of the Whos...singing after Xmas is ruined. It isn't fear/hate that changes [the Grinch], it's love." No, I'm not kidding, she really said that.
t should be unnecessary to say this, but as one commentator noted, Islamic terrorists don't carry out attacks because someone was mean to them. They do it because they've embraced a deadly ideology that teaches mass-murder is the will of God.

Response To Bernie Sanders Belief That Christians Should Not Hold Public Office
Bernie Sanders recently voted against a nomination for the office of Office of Management and Budget stating this individual "is really not someone who this country is supposed to be about."
Dear Senator Sanders,
I write this letter to you with respect and concern. Respect because of your years of service to our country and your terrific campaign last year. Concern because of your grilling of Russell Vought, President Trump's nominee for Deputy Director of the White House Office of Management and Budget, earlier this week.
Frankly, sir, I found your exchange with Mr. Vought to be quite alarming, not to mention downright un-American.
May I have your ear for a moment, Mr. Senator?
Although I am registered as an Independent rather than a Republican, I am strongly conservative, an so, in fundamental disagreement with much of your ideology. Yet when you rose to such national prominence last year, I found much to like about you.
You were unafraid to put your beliefs on the table. You were plainspoken rather than rhetorical. You had a great following among the younger generation. You had no history of ugly scandals in your past. And you had great passion and vision, in particular for a man in his 70's.
All this was impressive to me, and, in candor, I felt that the election was stacked against you and in favor of Mrs. Clinton.

U.S. Sending Christians Back To Iraq To Face 'Slaughter'
Chaldean Christians in Sterling Heights have been fighting a mega-mosque proposed for a residential area where they live for more than a year. Now, up to 200 of their family members are set to be deported by the Trump administration.
More than 100 Iraqi Christians were rounded up Sunday evening in federal raids in Michigan and will soon be deported back to their native land, where they face an uncertain fate in a country where Christians are marked for death in a genocide carried out by ISIS and other Islamic groups.
The raids were conducted by the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, or ICE. The ICE agents showed up without warning at the homes of Chaldean Christians and at a popular restaurant called Ishtar's in Sterling Heights, Michigan.
Those detained were mostly legal residents of the U.S., some having spent the majority of their lives here, but have had felonies on their records.
Hundreds of Chaldeans were out protesting Monday evening at 15 Mile and Ryan in Sterling Heights.
Nahren Anweya, who emigrated to the U.S. with her family as a young girl and is now in her early 30s, said up to 200 were rounded up Sunday, most of them Chaldean or Assyrian Christians.
Video taken of the raids showed distraught families screaming and weeping.
"So, as you can see from video the family members were very confused. They didn't know what is going on, and their families were beside themselves," she told WND.
Watch video of the raids Sunday in Michigan:

Southern Baptists Go 'Gender-Inclusive' On Bible
The Southern Baptist Convention's 2017 meeting is underway during a time of crisis and division for the nation's largest Protestant denomination.
Much of the division centers on politics – and at the center of the firestorm is Russell Moore, president of the Southern Baptist Convention's Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission (ERLC).
Moore spent last year waging a long and bitter war against President Donald Trump and his supporters, including penning frequent attacks on the then-candidate in the pages of leftist media outlets like the New York Times.
He also condemned Trump's immigration policies after the president's election.
Even before the rise of Trump, Moore had also been pushing the denomination to support amnesty for illegal aliens, skepticism of Israel and other stands with which most American conservatives would disagree.
During last year's meeting, the Southern Baptist Convention even took time to denounce the display of the Confederate battle flag. Some observers argue Moore may even break evangelical Christians' reliable support of the Republican Party.
While President Trump has delighted many American social conservatives, especially with his actions against abortion, Moore has been largely frozen out of the White House and was noticeably absent from President Trump's signing ceremony for an executive order on religious liberty.

Amazon's Checkout-Free Stores Provide Testing Ground For Surveillance Technology

Amazon Go appears to be ready to take the next step after some delays have seen it's first cashless retail store opening in Seattle fall behind schedule.  
Now a recent job listing seeking a senior real estate manager has raised speculation that not only will the first store be opening this year but the online giant plans to roll out its checkout-free convenience store concept on a larger scale.

For those who havent heard, the next iteration of the cashless society has crested the horizon. Amazon has come up with a new idea that just might change the way retail businesses operate. 

Amazon Go is set to be a retail experience for customers with no checkout lines. You read that right. Using a complex combination of lasers, sensors, cameras, scanners, apps, and tags to ensure that the right person is charged for the items purchased, but there will be no checkout lines or cash registers.
Shoppers click on the new Amazon Go app as they enter the store, and hold their smartphone to a scanner similar to an airport security line.  
Every time the customer picks up an item, it is automatically added to their virtual cart. (If the shopper puts the item back on the shelf, the item is automatically removed from the cart.) Once the customer leaves the store, their purchase is billed to their Amazon.com account.
Amazon claims their shopping experience employs the same types of technologies that enable driverless cars, such as sensor fusion, deep learning, and computer vision. 
For some, the idea of shopping without lines to checkout is a golden one, but others are sounding the alarm with concerns over privacy and rightfully so. 
One of the key elements of their security, CCTV cameras equipped with facial recognition software, may even be illegal - at least in the UK. At the very least, it is a stark breach of privacy.

Another Failed Attempt To Defend Sharia Law And Islam
On Saturday, June 10, there were marches against sharia in at least 20 cities in America. But according to the Bridge Initiative Team, these marches were both misinformed and misguided. Is the Bridge team correct
On Saturday, June 10, there were marches against sharia (i.e., Islamic law) in at least 20 cities in America. But according to the Bridge Initiative Team, these marches were both misinformed and misguided. 
"In reality," we are told, "these protests are motivated by Islamophobia. They are organized by an anti-Muslim group, and are an attempt to further entrench and legitimate myths about sharia, 'Islamic law,' and thus Muslims everywhere."
The marches were organized by Brigette Gabriel's ACT for America. Previously, she claimed that "a 'practicing Muslim,' who believes in the teachings of the Koran, cannot be a loyal citizen to the United States of America."
The Bridge Initiative Team categorically rejects this point of view, also rejecting ACT's "top 10 list of reasons as to why 'Sharia Law is incompatible with American Law.'"

The Sad Case Of Suing For 'Wrongful Birth'
Cases of "wrongful birth" are becoming increasingly common as prenatal medicine has advanced alongside cold and callous humanism.
Cases of "wrongful birth" are becoming increasingly common as prenatal medicine has advanced alongside cold and callous humanism. 
In 2013, Brock and Rhea Wuth won a $50 million dollar lawsuit in Washington against Valley Medical Center and Laboratory Corporation of America for failing to notify them of their son Oliver's genetic defects. 
If they had known, they would have killed him before birth, thus his life was found by the court to be "wrong". 
In 2014 an Australian woman paid for an abortion but her son lived and she too sued her doctors for depression, suffering and the full cost of raising her child.
More recently, the Supreme Court of Iowa found that a mother may sue the doctor's involved in her pregnancy because they neglected to provide her with sufficient information to decide to have an abortion.

With a name like the "National Democratic Institute" (NDI) one might expect the US State Department-funded, corporate-financier chaired front to be the premier proponent of freedom and democracy worldwide. 
And although it poses as such, it does precisely the opposite. It uses principles like free speech, democracy, press freedom, and human rights as a facade behind which it carries out a politically motivated agenda on behalf of the special interests that fund and direct its activities.
In a recent Tweet, NDI linked to a New York Times article titled, "In Europe's Election Season, Tech Vies to Fight Fake News." It claimed in the Tweet that the article featured:
A look at some of the projects aiming to use automated algorithms to identify and combat fake news. 
The article itself though, reveals nothing short of a global effort by US tech-giants Google and Facebook, in collaboration with the Western media, to censor any and all media that fails to align with Western-dominated narratives.
The article itself claims:
The French electorate heads to the polls in the second round of presidential elections on May 7, followed by votes in Britain and Germany in the coming months. Computer scientists, tech giants and start-ups are using sophisticated algorithms and reams of online data to quickly -- and automatically -- spot fake news faster than traditional fact-checking groups can. 
The goal, experts say, is to expand these digital tools across Europe, so the region can counter the fake news that caused so much confusion and anger during the United States presidential election in November, when outright false reports routinely spread like wildfire on Facebook and Twitter.

When Sharia Meets The Internet: Sentenced To Death For Blasphemous Facebook Post

Pakistan has handed down the stiffest penalty imaginable for a post to social media -- the death penalty -- for blasphemy, after a 30-year-old man argued with someone online who turned out to be a counterterrorism agent.
Taimoor Raza allegedly denigrated the Prophet Muhammad, his wives, and companions, in a debate about Islam, according to Bahawalpur public prosecutor Shafiq Qureshi and the Human Rights Commission of Pakistan, and was arrested and charged for the crime as part of an oppressive crackdown on dissent by the administration of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif.
"An anti terrorism court of Bahawalpur has awarded him the death sentence," Qureshi told Reuters. "It is the first ever death sentence in a case that involves social media."
Reuters notes, "Qureshi added that Raza belongs to the minority Shia community and in court he accused of spreading 'hate speech' against the Deobandi sect, which adheres to a strict school of Sunni Islam."
Dozens of others currently languish on Pakistan's death row for insulting the Prophet -- but Raza's death sentence is unique for the putative crime having occurred on Facebook and for involvement by the Pakistani counterterrorism department.
"My brother indulged in a sectarian debate on Facebook with a person, who we later come to know, was a [counter-terrorism department] official with the name of Muhammad Usman," asserted Raza's brother, Waseem Abbas, describing his family as "poor but literate."
Reports indicate the country's counterterrorism department maximized possible punishment for Raza by charging him under two separate sections of the law.

Convergence Of Signs Prepares The Way For Third Temple
Posted with permission from WND
For millennia, it was a scene that would have been unimaginable. Soldiers of the Jewish state, under the banner of the Star of David, crying exultantly, victoriously, "The Temple Mount is in our hands!"

It has been 50 years since Israel captured the Temple Mount and Old Jerusalem after brutal house-to-house fighting during the 1967 Six-Day War. Five decades later, the sacred site remains politically explosive, with even the simple act of prayer generating huge conflict.

Yet, the biggest battles undoubtedly lay ahead. Competing claims to sovereignty are always at the center of any negotiations between Israel and its Arab neighbors.

More importantly, there is a steady progression of signs indicating Jews are making real progress towards actually building the Third Temple, an act that would have profound geopolitical and spiritual ramifications.

Passover sacrifices are being held near the Temple Mount.
The specific breeds of animals needed to engage in the Temple sacrifices described in the Torah are being reintroduced into Israel.
Modern DNA technology allows the identification of those who can serve as priests in the Temple once it is constructed.
An altar, priestly garments, and other materials which would be needed to conduct services at the Temple have been created.
Many believers argue there is deep eschatological significance in how all of these unlikely events are coming together so swiftly and dramatically.

"Israel is the plumb line of prophecy," said Joseph Farah, author of "The Restitution of All Things: Israel, Christianity and the End of the Age." "That there is so much chatter and activity within the Jewish state about the rebuilding of the Temple in Jerusalem represents we live in an exciting time of history – the one about which all the prophets looked with hope for restoration of the world.Posted with permission from WND

Farmer Banned From Selling Blueberries For Not Supporting Gay Marriage
Gender activists are once again in the spotlight for using the legal system to force private businesses to support their views and lifestyles, even when that means state-sponsored religious discrimination.
ender activists are once again in the spotlight for using the legal system to force private businesses to support their views and lifestyles, even when that means state-sponsored religious discrimination.
This time their target is Steve Tennes and his family, the owners of the Country Mill Farms fruit orchard in Charlotte, Michigan. Now banned by the city of East Lansing from selling his fruit at the local farmer's market,
Tennes's only crime was referring a lesbian couple to another orchard for their marriage ceremony, since to host the ceremony would violate his Christian beliefs that a marriage is a sacred covenant between a man and a woman. 
Same-sex marriage activists have no shortage of facilities willing to bake cakes or host ceremonies, but targeting Christians and labeling them as bigots has been a tactic too effective for them to abandon.
The Tennes family's 120-acre farm is open to the public and they welcome people of all sexual orientations to pick produce, pet farm animals, go on hay rides, buy fresh baked goods and fruits. 
 
Now publicly shamed as a bigot for his Christian beliefs, Steve Tennes pointed out in an interview that he has employed both straight and gay farm workers in his business. He had no quarrel with any gay or lesbian customers, until he was contacted in 2014 by two lesbians who wanted to have their marriage ceremony on his property.

Hoodwinking The Kuffar
Muslims in general, especially those promoting extreme ideas, are growing more and more conscious of how they appear in the forum of public opinion.
When long-standing Palestinian Authority (PA) president Mahmoud Abbas met US President Donald Trump on May 7, he came out with what we British call a whopper, a huge lie. Here is what Abbas said with a straight face:
"Mr. President, I affirm to you that we are raising our youth, our children, our grandchildren on a culture of peace. And we are endeavoring to bring about security, freedom and peace for our children to live like the other children in the world, along with the Israeli children, in peace, freedom and security."
We expect politicians to lie out of all sides of their mouths, to use doublespeak in order to seduce citizens to vote for them. Whether they be government officials or opposition hopefuls, a certain amount of economy with the truth is par for the course.
Political analysts and well-informed journalists know this, of course, and work hard to untangle these webs. Facts matter.
Sources make a difference. And in democratic countries that value free speech and the freedom of the press, politicians are held to account. Not many falsehoods get off Scot-free, and serial liars are regularly brought to book.
Politicians and their spokespeople know this, however, and do their best to keep their lies within reasonable bounds, even when making promises they have no real desire to fulfil. Abbas's lies, however, are so gargantuan as to be in a league of their own.
There, the exact opposite is true, and thousands of videos, texts, and recorded radio broadcasts show that the PA, the PLO, Fatah and Abbas himself have, over the years done their utmost to teach Palestinian children to hate and prepare themselves for violence against Jews.

Jewish Anti-Zionists Protest Christian Zionists
image: http://prophecynewswatch.com/images/recent/protestjun122017.jpg
News Image BY ABRAHAM H. MILLER/JNS.ORG JUNE 12, 2017   
With more than 3 million members and the ability to mobilize activists in a heartbeat, Christians United for Israel (CUFI) is one of the strongest and most effective pro-Israel lobbies.
Its efficacy has sidelined the pseudo-Zionist J Street, and has served as a bulwark for elected officials whose support for the Jewish state might otherwise waver.
CUFI's impact is not limited to the national level. Through its network of Zionist churches, it also acts on the vital grassroots level. The essence of American politics is that it is local, and CUFI clearly understands that. 
With this year's 50th anniversary of the reunification of Jerusalem and the restoration of long-denied Jewish rights to their holy places under the illegal Jordanian occupation, CUFI has joined their Jewish brethren in celebrations that have been taking place in local churches.
The 1967 Six-Day War liberated historic Jewish holy places and made them accessible to Jews for the first time since 1948. Jordan had illegally occupied eastern Jerusalem, as it did the entire area of the "West Bank."
While Christians, many of them fundamentalists, have embraced the Jewish state and are committed to its survival, the Jewish left has found this as appalling as they have found the very existence of a Jewish state.
Pastor Victor Styrsky and his congregation were celebrating the reunification of Jerusalem June 4 at their church in Stockton, Calif., when they were disrupted by agitators from the leftist, anti-Zionist Jewish group IfNotNow.
When the final speaker was introduced at the Jerusalem Jubilee event, eight IfNotNow members maneuvered to the front of the stage and unfurled banners with messages condemning CUFIs mission.

Powerful 6.0 Earthquake Strikes Western Turkey
JUNE 12, 2017
An earthquake with a magnitude of at least 6.0, at a depth of approximately 10km, has struck off the coast of western Turkey. Effects of the quake have been felt in the cities of Izmir and Athens, according to the European Earthquake

monitor, EMSC. Witnesses said they felt a strong quake as “everyone ran outside,” with one describing it as the biggest they ever felt in Turkey. Other earthquake monitoring agencies issued preliminary reports of a tremor of varying magnitude, with the USGS alerting a 6.3 and the Greek Geodynamics Institute posting a 6.1 quake.

North Carolina County Approves Resolution Recognizing ‘Month of Ramadan’
JUNE 12, 2017
Commissioners over one county in North Carolina have approved a resolution recognizing June as the “Month of Ramadan.” The Mecklenburg County Board of Commissioners adopted the resolution on Tuesday, with six in favor and three against.  “Ramadan is a sacred time that commemorates the revelation of the Quran to the prophet Mohammad, and encourages fasting, prayer, reflection, God consciousness and gratitude,” the resolution reads. “[E]ach day of fasting

teaches the soul to struggle with the self, persevere, be patient and to forgive and love.” It asserts that Islam is a part of America’s history and that Muslims should be recognized for their contributions. “Ramadan reminds us that Islam has always been a part of America and Muslims have made extraordinary contributions to our country, including those made by the famous Muslim scholar Omar Ibn Said, who was enslaved and brought to the Carolinas in 1807,” the resolution states.

Shocking New Canadian Law! - Christian Families At Risk Of Having Children Taken

The transgender movement continues to gain momentum across the Western world, bulldozing, sanity, common sense, traditional values and cultures in its path of destruction.
In Canada, prior to 2017, the Child and Family Services Act that regulates the foster care and child protective services agencies took into consideration the religious beliefs of the family with regard to gender identity.
Removal from the home was to be a last and most gravely considered option in the face of abuse and to be done "in the best interests of the child."
Now, removal of children from the home is considered to be in the best interests of gender radicals who are pushing for the power to force transgenderism on families who want no part in it. 
The Ontario bill that just passed (63 to 23), and which repeals the aforementioned law, is officially designated Bill 89 and is labeled the Supporting Children, Youth and Families Act, 2017.
With the addition of "gender identity" and "gender expression" to the law, it also removes the religion of the family as a factor that the government will weigh when deciding whether to remove a child from the home.
Instead, the government will now legally consider only the "creed" of the child when assessing a case for a removal decision. 
The result is to grant an already liberal and intrusive government more control over its citizenry and tighter control of the family unit. Jack Fonseca, senior political strategist for Campaign Life Coalition commented that "With the passage of Bill 89, we've entered an era of totalitarian power by the state, such as never witnessed before in Canada's history."
He went on to say, "Make no mistake, Bill 89 is a grave threat to Christians and all people of faith who have children, or who hope to grow their family through adoption."

A Jihad Army In Europe?
In the four European countries most targeted by terror attacks -- Britain, France, Belgium and Germany -- the number of official extremists has reached 66,000. That sounds like a real army, on active duty.
"Germany is quietly building a European army under its command," according to some in the media. Apparently German Chancellor Angela Merkel, after her clash with U.S. President Donald Trump, would like to invest, along with France, in a European army.
At present, however, there is just one real army in Europe -- the Jihadist Army, as in the terrorists who struck London on June 3 and murdered seven people, just two weeks after carnage in Manchester.
In the four European countries most targeted by terror attacks -- Britain, France, Belgium and Germany -- the number of official extremists has reached 66,000. That sounds like a real army, on active duty.
Intelligence officers have identified 23,000 Islamic extremists living in Britain as potential terrorists. The number reveals the real extent of the jihadist threat in the UK.
The scale of the Islamist challenge facing the security services was disclosed after intense criticism that many opportunities to stop the Manchester suicide bomber had been overlooked.
French authorities are monitoring 15,000 Islamists, according a database created in March 2015 and managed by France's Counter-Terrorism Coordination Unit. Different surveys estimate up to 20,000 French radical Islamists.

Abortion Is What Planned Parenthood Does: No More Dishonest Rebranding
What does Planned Parenthood do? Everyone seems to know the answer except Planned Parenthood.
When I say "Colgate," what comes to mind? Well, toothpaste, of course. Too bad no one in the 1980s explained that to Colgate when they launched a line of frozen dinners named "Colgate Kitchen Entrees." Understandably, customers found the idea of eating food from a toothpaste company less than appetizing, and the whole experiment bit the dust.
But there's another brand today trying very hard to convince the public that it sells more than one product. Planned Parenthood has spent the last few years insisting that its clinics offer all kinds of services besides abortions. As the latest stunt in this ongoing campaign, they've partnered with "Avengers" director Joss Whedon to produce a high-budget ad titled "Unlocked."
In this three-minute propaganda piece, Whedon depicts a world without Planned Parenthood. It's a dark and scary place where a mother dies of cancer because she can't get screenings, where a couple breaks up because of a sexually transmitted disease, and where a young woman's dreams of college are crushed by a positive pregnancy test.

The Lessons And Consequences Of The Six-Day War

When you mention history, it can trigger a roll of the eyes. Add the Middle East to the equation, and folks might start running for the hills, unwilling to get caught up in the seemingly bottomless pit of details and disputes.
But without an understanding of what happened in the past, it's impossible to grasp where we are today; and where we are has profound relevance for the region and the world.
Fifty years ago this month, the Six-Day War broke out.
While some wars fade into obscurity, this one remains as relevant today as it was in 1967. Many of its core issues remain unresolved.
Politicians, diplomats and journalists continue to grapple with the consequences of that war, but rarely consider, or perhaps are even unaware of, the context. Yet without context, some critically important things may not make sense.
First, in June 1967, there was no state of Palestine. It didn't exist and never had. Its creation, proposed by the UN in 1947, was rejected by the Arab world because it also meant the establishment of a Jewish state next to it.
Second, the West Bank and eastern Jerusalem were in Jordanian hands. Violating solemn agreements, Jordan denied Jews access to their holiest places in eastern Jerusalem. To make matters still worse, they desecrated and destroyed many of those sites.
Meanwhile, the Gaza Strip was under Egyptian control, with harsh military rule imposed on local residents. And the Golan Heights, which were regularly used to shell Israeli communities far below, belonged to Syria.

Grooming Jihadists: The Ladder Of Radicalization And Its Antidote
If you spend hours listening to speeches and sermons by "respectable" local imams and Islamic scholars -- you can see a pattern emerge.
On March 22, when Khalid Masood rammed his vehicle into pedestrians on Westminster Bridge in London before attempting to stab his way to the Parliament building, it was as if the heart and soul of British democracy were under assault.
As horrifying as the terrorist attack was, however -- murdering four innocent people and wounding scores of others -- it belied the magnitude of a much larger problem that has been plaguing Europe and creeping up on the rest of the West. Jihadists committing murder in the name of Islam have left a trail of blood across North America, the Middle East, Australia, the Indian Subcontinent, Southeast Asia, Africa and Europe.
In November 2015, a suicide-bombing and shooting spree in Paris left 130 people dead and hundreds wounded; in March 2016, three coordinated suicide bombings targeting travelers in Brussels killed 32 and wounded hundreds; and last December, a truck-ramming at the Christmas market in Berlin left 12 people dead and another 56 injured.
These were just a few of the successful attacks; those thwarted were more numerous.
France's prime minister said last September that authorities were foiling plots "daily," while some 15,000 people "in the process of radicalization" were being monitored. Last year, British security services prevented no fewer than 12 other assaults.

Cities around the country are quickly adapting "smart" technologies in efforts to bring about greater efficiency, reduce crime, identify at-risk areas, improve traffic, ensuring adequate downtown parking, and accomplish many more solutions to everyday big city problems.
This greater efficiency, though, may come at a prohibitive cost for the citizens. In fact, it's leading many citizens to take notice and begin asking questions on their own.
Consider these potential pros and cons and get involved in the conversation in your community before agreeing to go "smart" for various vital operations and infrastructures that will affect your life and the lives of your family.
What Types of Technology do Smart Cities Employ?
The term Smart City means different things to different people. For instance, the city of San Diego recently installed well over 3,200 cameras and microphones throughout the city so they could engage in large-scale use of this surveillance technology.

Will Brits Vote For A Hard Left Antisemite This Week?
image: http://prophecynewswatch.com/images/recent/ukvotejune072017.jpg
News Image BY ALAN DERSHOWITZ/GATESTONE INSTITUTE JUNE 07, 2017
Share this article:
On June 8, British voters will head to the polls. Recent numbers show the gap closing between British Prime Minister Theresa May and Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn. When Prime Minister May called for a snap election last month - three years early - most assumed she would win easily and increase her parliamentary majority. But Corbyn - who was given odds of 200-1 when he ran for his party's leadership in 2015 - is doing surprisingly well again.

He also happens to lead a party that has been soft on antisemitism, and Corbyn himself has been accused of anti-Jewish bigotry. When facing such criticism, the Labour leader has offered the defense that he is anti-Israel, not anti-Jewish. But Corbyn's words and deeds demonstrate that he often uses his virulent anti-Zionism as a cover for his soft antisemitism.

Consider a speech Corbyn gave last year where he said that Jews are "no more responsible" for the actions of Israel than Muslims are for the actions of the Islamic State terrorist group. Moreover, Corbyn's "affinity" for terrorist groups (avowed to the destruction of the nation state of the Jewish people) is also well documented.

In 2009 Corbyn said: "it will be my pleasure and my honor to host an event in Parliament where our friends from Hezbollah will be speaking. I also invited friends from Hamas to come and speak as well." In light of these events, a key former adviser to Corbyn, Harry Fletcher, wrote: "I'd suggest to him [Jeremy] about how he might build bridges with the Jewish community and none of it ever happened."

Corbyn himself has said that he is not an antisemite but rather opposed to Zionism. Generally speaking, it is easy to say you hate Israel but you don't hate Jews. Even if this were true - and I am not sure that it is - the company that Corbyn keeps suggests that at best he gives a free pass to bigotry, racism and antisemitism within the ranks of his own party, and at worst, he espouses those same views.

Indeed, Corbyn has been known to share speaking platforms and lead rallies with some of the most infamous Jew-haters. He has attended meetings hosted by Paul Eisen -a 9/11 conspiracy theorist and Holocaust denier who wrote a blog titled "My Life as a Holocaust Denier."

Corbyn has also been associated with Sheikh Raed Salah - who was convicted for incitement to violence and racism and has been known to perpetuate traditional blood libels about Jews and said that Jews were warned not to go to the Twin Towers on 9/11 - calling him a "very honored citizen" whose "voice must be heard." Corbyn was also a paid contributor for Press TV, which is part of Iran's tightly controlled media apparatus whose production is directly overseen by Iran's antisemitic Supreme Leader.

One of the biggest criticisms of what has been referred to as the "Corbynization" of British politics has been the mainstreaming of traditional antisemitism. The country's Chief Rabbi, Ephraim Mirvis, has also chimed into the conversation, calling the Labour party's antisemitic problem "severe."

Consider, the bigotry of Gerald Kaufman (now deceased), for example - a Labour veteran and close political associate of Corbyn - who touted conspiracies about Jews and Jewish money throughout his political career. When speaking at a pro-Palestinian event Kaufman said: "Jewish money, Jewish donations to the Conservative Party - as in the general election in May - support from the Jewish Chronicle, all of those things, bias the Conservatives." While Corbyn condemned these remarks, he refused to yield to widespread demands for disciplinary action against Kaufman.

Let's be clear: I do not believe that Corbyn's rise in the polls is because he hates Jews and their nation state, but rather despite his bigotry. His opponent, Theresa May, called for elections and then refused to debate her opponents. She is running a lackluster campaign somewhat reminiscent of Hillary Clinton's last year.

Corbyn for his part, like President Trump, is a populist. Though they represent polar opposites on the political spectrum, they have much in common including their penchant to shoot from the hip, and their unpredictability. Many British voters are unaware of his antisemitic associations.

Others know but don't care. The hard left in Britain, especially among union activists and academics, include many knee jerk opponents of the nation state of the Jewish people and many supporters of academic and cultural boycotts of Israel. Many such supporters favor trade and engagement with such massive human rights offenders as Iran, Cuba, China, Russia, Belarus and Venezuela.
image: http://prophecynewswatch.com/images/ads/TCC_banner1.jpg


Indeed, it is antisemitic to single out only the nation state of the Jewish people - the Middle East's only democracy and a nation with one of the world's best records of human rights, the rule of law and concern for enemy civilians -- for boycotts.

Corbyn himself has called for boycotts of Israel. He has advocated for an arms embargo citing Israel's supposed "breach" of the human rights clause of the EU-Israel trade agreement. Corbyn also supports academic boycotts in some instances, and when Israel's national soccer team was travelling to Cardiff, Wales, for a qualifying game for the European Championship, Corbyn led calls for a boycott only of the soccer team representing the nation state of the Jewish people. (Ironically, Israel only plays in this league as it was expelled from the Asian Football Confederation due to the Arab League's boycott.)

Moreover, Corbyn has been a vocal supporter of the so-called Palestinian right of return stating that the Palestinians' "right to return home" is "the key" to the solution. This would soon make Arabs the majority within Israel and Jews the ethnic minority, rendering the two-state solution completely obsolete.

Whether antisemitism is the root of the Labour party's problem or the consequence is not important. Likewise, the distinct role Jeremy Corbyn has played in getting the Labour party to this point is not particularly relevant.

The fact is that he has not stemmed the tide of bigotry and anti-Jewish hate within the ranks of his party, but has played a big part in perpetuating it. British voters now have the opportunity to choose where they will go as a nation. Will they opt to move away from stability, rationality and tolerance-- and toward simple mindedness, xenophobia and intolerance? I don't know, but I hope they choose wisely.
Bernie Sanders has already made his choice. He is campaigning for Corbin despite his record on antisemitism. Sanders will have to explain why a Jew is helping to elect a bigot with the views Corbin holds about the Jewish people and their nation state.

I have never had a desire to study the significance of Bible numbers, but I have long believed that everything in the Bible is significant.
I have always been leery of going too far in the study of numbers, but I have recently seen some amazing things that other prophecy teachers (Bob Mitchell, Dan Goodwin, etc.) have pointed out.
I don't agree with everything they say, but I will try to take some of the amazing things these prophecy teachers say that seems right to me and pass it on in my own words.
Notice these six (the number of man) historical facts:

1897--A Zionist conference was held to find a homeland for the Jews.
1917--War: England capture Palestine (Israel, Jerusalem and more).
1947--A UN conference was held to find a homeland for the Jews.
1967--War: Israel captured West Bank (including East Jerusalem).
1997--An Arab conference was held to take the homeland of the Jews.
2017--War: threats from Iran, Hezbollah, ISIS, some Arabs, etc.

Rabbi: DNA Holds Secret To Rebuilding Temple
An Israeli rabbi is making the case the Hebrew priesthood can be re-established through genetics, making it time to rebuild the Temple.
Posted with permission from WND
An Israeli rabbi is making the case the Hebrew priesthood can be re-established through genetics, making it time to rebuild the Temple.
"Genetics connects modern Judaism to the Bible, confirming 3,000 years of Jewish tradition," explained Rabbi Yaakov Kleiman to Breaking Israel News. "This is an amazing testament to God's covenant and the Jewish people. Despite more than 2,000 years of exile we have maintained our religion, our customs, our Torah, and our genetic identity."
Kleiman opened the Center for Kohanim in Jerusalem nine years ago as a practical endeavor, and has authored a book on DNA evidence of the priesthood. Kohanim, or priests, are Jewish men believed to be descendants of Aaron, the first high priest of Israel. Only kohanim are permitted to conduct Temple services, according to the Bible.
Isn't it time for you to take a tour of Israel with WND's Joseph Farah, author of "The Restitution of All Things: Israel, Christians and the End of the Age"?
The tools he is using only became available in the last 20 when genetic researchers in Haifa discovered a Y chromosome, a genetic marker passed from father to son, that indicated a common ancestry for Jewish men whose family traditions hold that they are descended from the biblical priestly class.
"According to prophecy, there will be a Third Temple, and when there is, we will need to identify the priests," Kleiman said. "Kohanim are the manpower of the Temple. Without them, it is an empty building."
He cites Ezekiel 44:15 as the authority.

Can Our Universities Be Saved From Radical-Left Ideologies?
If we ignore the crisis, things will only get worse and we effectively surrender the souls of the next generation.
Where is the one place in America where free speech is commonly suppressed, where there is often as much indoctrination as education, and where radical-left ideologies reign almost unchallenged?
It is our college and university campuses. Many of them have become so biased and extreme that even CNN's Fareed Zakaria, hardly a conservative, excoriated their intolerance. Can our universities be saved?
We're not just talking about the occasional educational faux pas, such as the embarrassing incident that occurred in 1989 when heavyweight boxer Mike Tyson received an honorary doctorate from Central State University in Ohio.
Speaking at the graduation ceremony in cap and gown, Tyson remarked, "I wasn't sure what kind of doctor I was, but looking at all the lovely sisters here, I think I'll be a doctor of gynecology."
No, we're talking about a systematic dumbing down and radicalizing of our campuses.
Typical of the dumbing down of our schools was this comment from comedian Kumail Nanjiani, delivering the commencement speech at his alma mater, Grinnell College in Iowa.
He said, "So here's another concrete piece of advice I can give you - have sex with an immigrant. We're going through a tough time right now and it would just be really great for morale."
What great advice from a commencement speaker.
Typical of the radicalizing of our schools were these comments from Keeanga-Yamahtta Taylor, an assistant professor in African American studies at Princeton. Speaking at the graduation service for Hamilton College in Massachusetts, she referred to President Trump as "a racist, sexist megalomaniac."

Palestinian Authority Paid Terrorists More Than $1 Billion In 4 Years
The longer a Palestinian terrorist prisoner remains in an Israeli jail, the higher the salary
The former director general of the Ministry of Strategic Affairs, Brig. Gen. (res.) Yossi Kuperwasser, told the Knesset's Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee Monday the Palestinian Authority (PA) has paid $1.12 billion to Palestinian terrorists and their families during the past four years.
Kuperwasser said the longer a Palestinian terrorist prisoner remains in an Israeli jail, "the higher the salary...Anyone who has sat in prison for more than 30 years gets NIS 12,000 ($3,378) per month."
He added, "When they're released, they get a grant and are promised a job at the Palestinian Authority.
They get a military rank that's determined according to the number of years they've served in jail."
Kuperwasser's briefing of Israeli lawmakers follows President Donald Trump's recent rebuke of Palesti
nian leaders in a joint press conference with PA President Mahmoud Abbas in Bethlehem.
image: http://prophecynewswatch.com/images/ads/TCC_banner1.jpg
Trump said, "Peace can never take root in an environment where violence is tolerated, funded and even rewarded."
During the leaders' closed-door meeting in Bethlehem, Trump reportedly yelled at Abbas, "You tricked me in D.C.! You talked there about your commitment to peace, but the Israelis showed me your involvement in incitement."

Are Christians In Military Really A 'National Security Threat'?
Newsweek runs hit piece on Christians in the military brandishing them as 'radicals'.
Jason & David Benham
Posted with permission from WND
On this Memorial Day, we honor those who have died serving our country. We thank God for their sacrifice. And we stand in solidarity with all those in the military. We're grateful for their service to our country.
Unfortunately, this is also a perfect time for the mainstream media to spew propaganda against Christian influence in the military. We've gotten used to this by now, because propaganda is vital to the health of today's radical, anti-God, secular revolution.
Hitler wrote in "Mein Kampf," "By clever and persevering use of propaganda even heaven can be presented as hell to the people, and conversely the most wretched life as paradise."
A few decades later, Saul Alinsky wrote in "Rules for Radicals," "If you push a negative hard enough it will eventually push through to become a positive."
This is the power of propaganda.
The problem is, when it's left unchecked, propaganda sets the stage for radicals to "create problems" that don't truly exist in order to target and vilify groups of people so they can advance an agenda.
It's a page right out of Alinsky's book. He wrote: "In the beginning, the organizers' first job is to create the issues or problems. Doing this allows the people to feel so frustrated, so defeated, so lost, so futureless in the prevailing system that they are willing to let go of the past and chance the future."
So last week, when Newsweek ran an article, titled, "Trump effect inspires radical Christians in military," it was as if the writer had just finished reading "Rules for Radicals" – because the entire article was nothing less than a targeted hit piece on Christianity. Check out the first sentence:
"Donald Trump's election has led to such a steep rise in fundamentalist Christian evangelizing and religious bigotry in the U.S. armed forces that the matter is reaching the level of a ‘national security threat,' according to complaints from the Military Religious Freedom Foundation (MRFF)."
Are you kidding? Faithful Christians in the military a "national security threat?" This should be laughable, except for the fact that "clever and persevering use of propaganda," as Hitler put it, will eventually flip things upside-down.
Here's more: http://prophecynewswatch.com/article.cfm?recent_news_id=1276


Mere weeks after the terrorist attacks in Britain -- on May 22 in Manchester and earlier in Westminster -- there is planned in London, on July 8-9, a major event which its organizers describe as:
Palestine Expo: the biggest social, cultural and entertainment event on Palestine to ever take place in Europe. In a year of immense significance for Palestine, we are pleased to announce, Palestine Expo 2017.
In a major coup, the exposition will take place, not in a scruffy hall on the outskirts of the city, but in the Queen Elizabeth II Centre in Westminster, near the Houses of Parliament, in the shadow of Big Ben and Westminster Abbey.
The prestigious centre is owned by the UK Government and its operation is conducted by an executive agency of the Department for Communities and Local Government. 
On the surface, it might appear that this is merely a cultural event designed to give the British public a taste of Palestinian cooking, music, art, in particular, history (starting in 1948!).
A closer examination, however, reveals something less pleasant. Underneath the surface, this exposition is dedicated to a presentation of Palestinian victimhood and "resistance" (read terrorism), the same "resistance" as in Israel, and on similar false pretexts.
In Israel, the false pretext is that Jews -- who have lived in Canaan and Judea for 3,000 years, as is substantiated by enough documentary and archaeological evidence to sink a supertanker -- are supposedly occupying "Palestinian land".

A Tale of Two Toys: Fidget Spinners vs. Journey To Jerusalem

Share this article: 
Two toys on separate sides of a conflict, one meant to promote peace and the other to foment violence.
What parents teach their children, what society puts in their hands, says a remarkable amount about the values of our culture and deep-seated desires. Do we yearn for our children to live in a world of peace or do we strive to instill in them a violent nature?
Fidget spinners are the latest toy fad that is selling by the millions to children and teens across the country, but few know surprising origin of the tiny plastic toys, an origin rooted in the conflict between Israel and Palestine.
Far from the classroom annoyance that it has become today, the original fidget spinner was invented in the 1980s, during the First Intifada by Catherine Hettinger. Hettinger was visiting her sister in Israel when she witnessed Palestinian children throwing rocks at IDF soldiers and police officers.
Young boys, most not yet teenagers, put the lives of Israeli police and soldiers at risk, as well as their own, with a senseless act of restless violence that Hettinger sought to quell.

Culture Wars - Censoring You To 'Protect' You
In the culture-wars currently rocking US campuses, the enemies of free speech have plenty of tools on their side.
In the culture-wars currently rocking US campuses, the enemies of free speech have plenty of tools on their side. Many of these would appear to be advantages.
For instance the employment of violence, thuggery and intimidation against those who disagree are generally effective ways to prevent people hearing things you do not want them to hear.
As are the subtler but more regularly employed tactics for shutting people down, such a "no-platforming" people or getting them disinvited after they have been invited, should the speaker's views not accord 100% with those of their would-be censors.
As also noted in this space before, many of the people who campaign to limit what American students can learn also have the short-term advantage of being willing to lie without compunction and cover over facts whenever they emerge.
The important point here, however, is that word "short-term". In the long run, those who wish to cover over a contrary opinion, or even inconvenient facts, are unlikely to succeed.
Adults tend to be capable of more discernment and initiative than the aspirant-nannies believe them to be, and the effects will always tend to show. Take, for example, events in Portland, Oregon, last month.
In April, a gathering took place at the Portland State University. The occasion was billed as an interfaith panel and was given the title, "Challenging Misperceptions."

Living Prophecy - Stunning 'Ingathering' Of Jews To Israel
Within only a few generations, Jews scattered around the world have reassembled into a nation in their ancient biblical homeland of Israel.
Posted with permission from WND
It's perhaps the most rapid demographic shift in history. Some would even call it miraculous.
Within only a few generations, Jews scattered around the world have reassembled into a nation in their ancient biblical homeland of Israel. One Israeli in the new film "I Am Israel" marvels that there were only around 60,000 Jews in what is now Israel at the turn of the last century, compared to more than 6 million today.
As Breaking Israel News notes, the global population of Jews outside Israel has decreased from 1945 to today, while the number of Jews within Israel has dramatically increased. Today, 43 percent of the global Jewish population now resides in Israel. If current trends continue, the majority of the world's Jewish population will soon reside in Israel.
"Another Bible prophecy is about to be fulfilled in Israel," said Joseph Farah, founder of WND and the author of "The Restitution of All Things: Israel, Christians and the End of the Age." "We're reaching the tipping point at which the majority of the world's Jews are actually living in Israel. That strikes me as a big deal when you consider how many times the Bible predicts this miraculous ingathering – something that has never happened with any other nation in the history of the world."
Farah points to Scriptures such as Isaiah 11:11 and Jeremiah 16:14-16 that suggest the biggest miracles in Israel's history, such as this vast ingathering of the Jews from all parts of the earth, are still to come. Farah, who along with his wife Elizabeth will be leading the 2017 WND Israel Tour in November 2017, has argued the rebirth of Israel and the prophesied ingathering of the Jews is God's greatest miracle.

The Christian Exodus From The Middle East 
The largest Christian exodus in modern history is currently taking place thanks to Islamic extremists.
The years of bloody conflict still raging across the Middle East in Iraq, Egypt, Syria and other failing states have made headlines for the mass migration of Muslims out of the region, but there is another side to this story: the largest Christian exodus in modern history.
As the fellows at the Center for American progress point out, Christians, now faced with murder on a genocidal scale, have abandoned their ancestral homes across the Middle East under intense pressure from not only from civil wars, ISIS and other Islamic extremists but also from increasingly discriminatory legal codes and institutions in Muslim countries.
Threatened with discrimination, enslavement and death at the hands of Islamic radicals, millions of families are forced to make a desperate choice to leave behind everything they know and seek safety in the West. 
Christian migration from the Middle East is not a new phenomenon, though its acceleration is.
The exodus started more than a hundred years ago and has come in stages as people were pulled by economic opportunities in the West and pushed by civil wars in Lebanon and conflict in Iraq in the 1990s.
There was hope for religious tolerance at the start of the decade in 2010 when protestors took to the streets in more than a dozen Middle East countries to protest the excesses of dictatorship, but this was short lived as these popular movements were subverted by Islamic radicals or descended into civil strife that made conditions far worse for Christians.

Ben & Jerry's Same-Flavored Scoop Ban - Why Same-Sex 'Marriage' Is Not Marriage
If you want two scoops of New York Super Fudge Chocolate on your ice cream cone, you can't have it.
It certainly wasn't their intent, but Ben and Jerry's, the famous, specialty ice cream company, has given us further evidence that same-sex "marriage" is not marriage. How so?
The company, which has long been known for its left-wing activism, went one step farther this week. As a headline in the Daily Mail announced, "Ben & Jerry's BAN customers from ordering two scoops of the same ice cream until Australia legalises gay marriage."
That's right. If you want two scoops of New York Super Fudge Chocolate on your ice cream cone, you can't have it. You'll have to settle for just one scoop or mix in another flavor.
This is Ben and Jerry's way of sending a message: "we believe love comes in all flavours."
As they explained on their website: "Imagine heading down to your local Scoop Shop to order your favourite two scoops of Cookie Dough in a waffle cone,' the company wrote on their website.
"But you find out you are not allowed... you'd be furious!

Drone Vs Drone: Race For Countermeasures Against Drone Terrorism
We may be on the cusp of a new frontier where drone-versus-drone combat becomes an everyday reality.
Almost any time a significant new technology becomes viable there are serious military implications to be reckoned with. It was true with the advent of repeatable firearms, the mass production of automobiles, as well as the advent of networking computers.
Now, the next big piece of tech lined up for intense regulation is drone technology.
So far, drone technology is familiar to most people in two major ways; as a terrifying robotic military weapon, and as an exciting hobby for people of all ages.
But drone technology has become so robust that it is rapidly dropping in price while still achieving better and better capabilities.
Drones are now so reliable and cost effective that online retailers like Amazon and package carrier services like Fed Ex are investing millions in creating drone-based delivery systems.

Americans Love Jesus But Struggle With The Church
image: http://prophecynewswatch.com/images/recent/leavingchurch.jpg
News Image BY PNW STAFF MAY 29, 2017
Decline in church attendance has been the focus of dire predictions for decades now, often attributed to a rise in secularism in American culture that corresponds to a decay in the nation's moral fabric.
A new study by Barna raises another interesting possibility however: "Americans who love Jesus but not the Church." Foregoing church attendance for more personal and individual expressions of faith, this group poses several interesting questions to researchers.
Is this shift a long-term trend or simply a generational change likely to revert? Does lack of attendance correlate with a lack of knowledge of or belief in the Bible? Does this indicate a fundamental shift in Christianity and what could be the cause?
The drop in church attendance is not seen uniformly across all age groups nor in all parts of the country. Barna found that the group of Christians that has "de-churched", that is to say previously been regular church-goers who continue to profess Christian beliefs but who have not attended church in the last six months, is composed of 60% women, 80% of whom are between the ages of 33 and 70.
This argues against an indictment of youth culture moving away from the faith and instead points to different motivations. Only 14% of those who have moved away from church attendance are part of the millennial generation.

The Left's Misguided Love Affair With Islam
image: http://prophecynewswatch.com/images/recent/liberalmay292017.jpg
News Image BY MICHAEL BROWN/ASKDRBROWN.ORG MAY 29, 2017
Why do so many liberals praise a religion that, at its root, is quite conservative, if not fundamentalist?
Why do they defend a faith that would not defend them? Worse still, why do they defend a faith that, in some cases, would do violence to them?
Last week, Robert Spencer, Director of Jihad Watch and a New York Times bestselling author on radical Islam, was invited to speak at the University of Buffalo.
But he was unable to say much because of the vocal opposition. He was shouted down and reviled, especially when attempting to read Islamic texts describing Islamic beliefs.
To paraphrase, "Not on our campus! We are progressive. We are liberal. We are enlightened. You will not bring your hate-filled bigotry here!"
In Spencer's own words, "I spoke a few sentences and made a couple of points in between being screamed at by Leftist and Islamic supremacist fascists who think they're opposing fascism."
Did you catch that? Spencer was opposed by staunch liberals and staunch Muslims. What an odd couple they make, yet this has happened time and again in the recent past. Why?

End The Propaganda Myth That Jerusalem Is Holy To Muslims

Upon the 50th anniversary of the Jewish state of Israel's reunification of Jerusalem, there is no better time to end the propaganda myth that Jerusalem is a holy city to Muslims.
The Muslim fixation and clamor on Jerusalem is actually a very recent historical development--a product of political conflict, not historical truth.
Jerusalem rates not a single mention in the Quran, and Muslims face Mecca in prayer. In the 7th century A.D., the Damascus-based Umayyad rulers built up Jerusalem as a counterweight to Mecca.
This is when the important Muslim shrines, the Dome of the Rock (691) and the Al-Aqsa mosque (705), were intentionally built on the site of the destroyed biblical Jewish temples--a time-honored practice to physically signal the predominance of Islam.
Yet references in the Quran and hadith to Muhammad's night journey to heaven on his steed Buraq from the "farthest mosque" couldn't mean Jerusalem, because the Quran refers to the land of Israel as the "nearest" place.
It couldn't have been a reference to the Al-Aqsa mosque, for the simple reason that Al-Aqsa didn't exist in Muhammad's day.
With the demise of the Umayyad dynasty and the shift of the caliphate to Baghdad, Jerusalem fell into a long decline, scarcely interrupted by occasional bursts of Muslim interest in the city during the Crusader period and the Ottoman conquest. Mark Twain, visiting in 1867, described it as a "pauper village."

Israel Braces For Its Next Battlefront: The Sea

Share this article:  
Amid a quiet-yet-massive arms race between Israel and Hezbollah, both sides are preparing for the possibility of a war branching out to sea.  
The new reality for Israel's navy is that Hezbollah and Hamas are more than terrorist organizations--they represent new kinds of armies, and in Hezbollah's case, an army with advanced state-level weaponry. 
In Lebanon, Hezbollah's enormous arsenal of ballistic projectiles and missiles continues to grow. The Iranian-backed Shi'a terror group also has a growing number of rockets with GPS guidance kits, and a stockpile of surface-to-sea cruise missiles for taking aim at sensitive targets. 
Such targets could include Israeli ports, navy bases, civilian and military sea vessels, and offshore gas rigs.
In Gaza, Hamas is manufacturing unguided ballistic rockets it can use to attack ships, gas rigs and the Ashdod port, though Hamas appears to lack Hezbollah's cruise missiles and guided rockets. 
The IDF has developed ways to attack these threatening projectile launchers in the event of a military escalation, and the Israeli Navy plays a key role in these plans.
The navy is also acquiring systems for defending itself--and others--against incoming rockets and missiles, former Israeli Navy Chief Vice Admiral Eliezer Marum told JNS.org.

What Time Is It On God's Calendar? Watch Jerusalem
image: http://prophecynewswatch.com/images/recent/godstimepiecemay242017.jpg
News Image BY BARRY ELKIN MAY 24, 2017
In the twenty-fifth chapter of Leviticus is found God's giving of the Jubilee to the nation of Israel.
"And thou shalt number seven Sabbaths of years unto thee, seven times seven years; and the space of the seven Sabbaths of years shall be unto thee forty and nine years. Then shalt thou cause the trumpet of the jubilee to sound on the tenth day of the seventh month, in the day of atonement shall ye make the trumpet sound throughout all your land. And ye shall hallow the fiftieth year, and proclaim liberty throughout all the land unto all the inhabitants thereof: it shall be a jubilee unto you; and ye shall return every man unto his possession, and ye shall return every man unto his family."
Every seventh year was a Sabbath year and after seven Sabbath years numbering forty-nine years in all, they were to proclaim the following year, the fiftieth year a jubilee.
One of the primary functions of the jubilee was to return every possession unto its original owner. The institution of the Jubilee Year became the means of fixing the price of real property and moreover, it excluded the possibility of selling any piece of land permanently.
In verse 23 God furnishes the motive:
"The land shall not be sold for ever: for the land is mine; for ye are strangers and sojourners with me."

Europe's Islamic Future
Europe is changing and experts now believe that the process of Islamization has moved past a point of no return.. 
The familiar image of Europe is quickly fading in a post modern liberal form of cultural suicide. 
Soon to be distant memories, in just a few decades we will look back on Christian values, democratic principles, freedom of belief, equality of the genders and respect for individual rights as echoes of a glorious European past. 
Just as the castles dotting the landscape recall a feudal history, so too will we look back on a time when Europe wasn't Islamic.
There is no great Islamic army of tanks and soldiers arrayed across Europe's borders, waiting for the signal to thunder across. 
Neither Turkey, Egypt, Syria nor Iran need to declare war or fire a single shot and yet within a few short generations, Islam will overwhelm the European continent and snuff out French, German, Swedish, British and a host of other European cultures. 
The invasion is one of immigration and higher birthrates, and it is well underway. It is a silent jihad.
No accident of history, this demographic shift is a long-term strategy that the autocrats of Islamic nations recognize and proudly boast of to the world. Immigration is a part of the equation, but equally important are the higher birthrates of Muslim families that tend to have more children. 
Yasser Arafat, as Christian lecturer Dr. Alex McFarland points out, famously told the Arab world in 1994, while he was the President of the PLA, that Islam would "win the world through the wombs of the Arabic women." He was not the only leader to make such claims.
As recently as March of 2017, the increasingly authoritarian President Erdogan of Turkey delivered a speech in which he instructed Turks to "Make not three, but five children. Because you are the future of Europe. That will be the best response to the injustices against you."

Jerusalem's Ancient Temple Vessels Hidden In Plain Sight?
Biblical Archaeology is a powerful way to discredit UNESCO's Anti-Israel Agenda.
"Then Shlomo assembled the elders of Yisrael, and all the heads of the tribes, the princes of the fathers' houses of Bnei Yisrael unto King Shlomo in Yerushalayim to bring up the Ark of the Covenant of Hashem out of the City of David, which is Zion." (I Kings 8:1)
With the United Nation's cultural body (UNESCO) once again passing a series of anti-Israel resolutions that deny the country's biblical and historical claims to Jerusalem, Harry H. Moskoff, investigative archaeologist, author, and Temple Ark expert, believes that one of the strongest ways to support Israel is through searching, and even finding the Ark along with the holy Temple vessels, for whose true location he claims to have a unique theory.
"In my recent book I provide many proofs, all sourced and referenced to prove that the Temple stood more to the southwest of the Dome of the Rock, i.e. closer to the Western Wall of today," explained Moskoff to Prophecy News Watch. "All of these proofs come from a scriptural perspective, specifically from the Torah and other Jewish sources."
Moskoff has spent significant time and resources into searching the location of these artifacts which he believes are urgently needed to be found to not only silence Israel's enemies, but also to speed up the final redemption.
"I'm finding that more and more people from all walks of life are seeking ways to help the plight of Israel in the mainstream media and in the forum of public opinion," he continued. "With Jerusalem celebrating 50 years of its reunification with the miraculous Six-Day War, now is the most appropriate time to recognize the importance of biblical archaeology and support these projects."

Jerusalem, If I Forget You
Jerusalem Day this year marks the 50th anniversary of the reunification of the holiest city in the world.
Free activities in the Old City and surrounding areas will include musical performances, a parade, a prayer service at the Western Wall and free tours of different historical sites.
Israelis and Jews worldwide viewed the reunification of Jerusalem as a momentous event, if not a divinely orchestrated occurrence - a gift to the Chosen People from God.
But despite the citys continued growth and development, there are still thousands of needy residents in the city. The Meir Panim charity organization was established ten years ago to keep those disadvantaged people from going hungry. 
Jerusalem has always been a city under siege, falling into the hands of many rulers and governments for thousands of years. After the State of Israel was established in 1948, the holy city was still under Jordanian control.
And then, for six harrowing days in 1967, the very existence of Israel was again at risk when Egyptian, Jordanian, and Syrian military attacked the young country. Against all odds, Israelis were victorious, and along with the Golan Heights, the Sinai Peninsula, and the West Bank, Jerusalem was captured and once again safely in possession of the Jewish People - after they had been denied access to the site of the Holy Temple for 2,000 years.
 
The Temple Mount is in our hands!
These were the famous words exclaimed by Commander Motta Gur upon reaching the Dome of the Rock. In fulfillment of the Biblical prophecy, General Rabbi Shlomo Goren, chief chaplain of the IDF, heralded the liberation of the Western Wall by triumphantly sounding a shofar.

Jewish Sanhedrin Challenge To Trump: Pray At Temple Mount
 
The reconstituted Jewish high court, the nascent Sanhedrin, has a plan for the beleaguered president to obtain a massive blessing for himself and the world.
Posted with permission from WND
President Trump is headed to the Holy Land, leaving behind a domestic media frenzy over alleged campaign collusion with Russia.
But the reconstituted Jewish high court, the nascent Sanhedrin, has a plan for the beleaguered president to obtain a massive blessing for himself and the world – pray at the Temple Mount.
The Sanhedrin, a group of prominent rabbinical leaders who re-formed the ancient body of Jewish judges which was once the legislative body of Israel, said President Trump would help the cause of world peace by praying at the sacred location.
They're not the only ones encouraging Trump to take such a step.
"I love this idea by the Israeli Sanhedrin for President Trump to visit the Temple Mount when he is in Israel," said Joseph Farah, author of "The Restitution of All Things: Israel, Christians and the End of the Age." "The president needs to see what all the conflict is about – this 35-acre piece of real estate smack-dab in the midst of Israel's capital city.
"Israel has bent over backward accommodating the religious traditions of Muslims by permitting them to administer what is, in effect, the holiest site in Judaism. Is there any gratitude for such a concession? No, the Islamic clerics and leaders insist on forbidding Christians and Jews to pray there. They harass Christians and Jews over their attire. They monitor what Christians and Jews say to one another on the Temple Mount and sometimes force them off the property. What an opportunity President Trump has to see the dynamics of this conflict for himself."

Palestinians: The Threats Trump Needs To Hear
Hamas could easily take over any Palestinian state that the U.S. and the Europeans help create in the West Bank.
As U.S. President Donald Trump prepares to hold his second meeting with Palestinian Authority (PA) President Mahmoud Abbas in Bethlehem next week, two Palestinian terror groups have announced that the new U.S. administration is planning to "liquidate the Palestinian cause." 
The warning by Hamas and Islamic Jihad is directed not only against Trump and his new administration, but also against Abbas and any Arab leader who dares to "collude" with the U.S.
The two Palestinian terror groups, which control the Gaza Strip and its two million residents, also renewed their pledge to pursue the armed fight against Israel; they said they would not give up one inch of Palestine, from the (Mediterranean) sea to the (Jordan) river.
Trump and his administration would do well to heed the warning issued by Hamas and Islamic Jihad, especially in the wake of Abbas's recent statements concerning a two-state solution and peace with Israel. 
Abbas controls only parts of the West Bank, and how he intends to establish a Palestinian state when he cannot even set foot in the Gaza Strip is anyone's guess. 
Recently, Hamas announced that if and when the 82-year-old Abbas shows up in the Gaza Strip, he will be hanged in a public square on charges of "high treason."
The warning by the Palestinian terror groups was made during a joint rally in the Gaza Strip on May 14. Leaders of Hamas and Islamic Jihad vowed to "preserve the Palestinian rifle and Palestinian rights in the face of any schemes and attempts to liquidate the Palestinian cause."
Hamas leader Mahmoud Zahar stated that Palestinian "principles are part of our [Islamic] religion, and we cannot make any concessions on them. We will not give up one inch of our land and holy sites. We will continue to work until the liberation of each inch of Palestine."
Zahar also warned Abbas against signing any agreement with Israel that includes relinquishing Palestinian rights. "Anyone who gives up our rights and holy sites will betray Allah and his Prophet Mohammed," Zahar cautioned.

Christian Zionists Urge Trump To Keep His Promise On Moving Embassy To Jerusalem
Christian Zionist organizations are calling on the president to fulfill his election campaign promise to relocate the U.S. embassy in Israel.
Ahead of President Donald Trump's Israel visit, top Christian Zionist organizations and leaders are calling on the president to fulfill his election campaign promise to relocate the U.S. embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, despite reports that Trump is unlikely to make the move in the near future. 
Pastor John Hagee, founder and chairman of Christians United for Israel, wrote in a letter published in the Washington Times that Trump's promise to move the embassy had been "vital to securing the support of millions of Christian Zionists around the country" for the GOP candidate.
Hagee also noted Trump will soon need to decide whether to postpone the embassy's transfer to Jerusalem by at least half a year.
"Like [former President Harry] Truman, Mr. Trump must contend with well-entrenched anti-Israel bureaucrats at the State Department who will try to use their positions to make moving the embassy difficult. But the buck does not stop with bureaucrats," he wrote.
Hagee added, "The Jewish state has the right to determine where it would place its capital, and it has chosen Jerusalem. The international community's decision to cower before Israel's enemies by keeping embassies in Tel Aviv is disgraceful."
In 1995, Congress passed the Jerusalem Embassy Act, which calls on the U.S. to move the embassy to Jerusalem and recognize the city as Israel's capital.

Jerusalem's Population Growth Booms
As Israel prepares to mark the 50th anniversary of the reunification of Jerusalem, the nation's capital has experienced significant population growth.
As Israel prepares to mark the 50th anniversary of the reunification of Jerusalem May 23, the nation's capital has experienced significant population growth.
According to the Israeli Central Bureau of Statistics, Jerusalem's population has grown from just 84,000 in 1948 to 883,000 in 2016. Around 10 percent of Israel's population resides in Jerusalem.
Last year, 3,118 new immigrants made the capital their home and Jerusalem's population grew by 16,000 people.
There were 23,600 births in the city in 2016, which constituted 13 percent of births across the country. 
The total fertility rate in Jerusalem stood at 3.87 children per woman in 2016, compared with the national average of 3.1. The average household in Jerusalem, with 3.9 members, was also larger than the Israeli average of 3.3 household members.
Ninety-three percent of Jews and 89 percent of Arabs who live in Jerusalem say they are satisfied with their lives.

Jerusalem Institute for Policy Research data reveals the high-tech industry is thriving in the capital. In the past two years, the number of Jerusalem residents employed in the high-tech industry rose by 28 percent. 
In 2015, 18,500 people worked in high-tech, compared to 14,400 in 2013. Workforce participation in 2016, however, stood at 52.4 percent, as opposed to the national average of 64.1 percent.

Ransomware Is Tip Of The Iceberg: America's Infrastructure At Risk
It's only a matter of time before rogue groups make a direct attempt at taking down core systems that keep millions of people in America alive.
Ransomware Is Tip Of The Iceberg: America's Infrastructure At Risk
image: http://www.prophecynewswatch.com/images/recent/ransomewaremay172017.jpg
News Image BY MAC SLAVO/SHTFPLAN.COM MAY 17, 2017:
The Ransomware that began spreading across the globe on Friday is still going with more computers reportedly being affected today by new variants of the virus.
What we've learned is that the attack hasn't just taken down personal computers, but core government and business networks affecting everything from health care systems and transportation in Europe, to ATM withdrawals in China.
It's massive, to be sure. But in the grand scheme of things, up to this point, it has been a fairly minor inconvenience.
But as Joe Joseph warns in his latest news report at The Daily Sheeple, this is just the tip of the iceberg, because now that we've seen how quickly such an attack can spread, it's only a matter of time before rogue groups or state-sponsored players make a direct attempt at taking down core systems that keep millions of people in America alive. 
As we've previously noted, U.S. cyber command has warned that power grids, physical infrastructure and commerce systems will be a major target of future cyber attacks, and the latest Ransomware attack utilizing NSA-created exploits proves just how serious the damage could be:
Experts are saying this is just the tip of the iceberg... what the NSA has done and the damage they have caused as the result of coming up with these exploits in the first place is criminal... but it's beyond criminal... in our society we have become so dependent on technology.. our computers... our cell phone...
We've become so hooked on it that if something happens and it looks like it can very easily happen... where some of these hacks are exploited... we could see an instantaneous change in the way that we live... to the point where you could see upwards of 80% or 90% of the population just in the United States dying as a result of a prolonged power outage because the grid gets hacked...
Joseph's figure of a 90% die off in the event of a grid failure is based on the work of EMP researcher Dr. Peter Pry, who recently testified before a Congressional panel on the dangers of "grid down" scenarios resulting from electro-magnetic pulse attack. 
Though Pry's research is primarily based on the threat of a nuclear device being detonated a couple hundred miles above the central United States taking out the entirety of the domestic power grid, the end result of a grid-down scenario, whether initiated by a cyber attack or something else, is very much the same.
Without the grid, all life in America would come to a standstill. Gas station pumps wouldn't work, which means trucks couldn't deliver food to grocery stores. And even if your local store still had food on the shelves, cash registers and bank payment verification systems would be unavailable, making hard currency like gold and silver the only means of transacting. 
As we've seen in China over the weekend, ATM's would likely be inaccessible. So, too, would be your access to clean water, as most utility plants are tied to the power grid.

In short, within about 72 hours, there would be pandemonium in the streets, as highlighted by The Prepper's Blueprint author Tess Pennington in her article The Anatomy of a Breakdown:

Are Scientists Playing God By Manipulating DNA Of Human Embryos?
image: http://www.prophecynewswatch.com/images/recent/dna2jan102017.jpg
News Image BY PNW STAFF MAY 17, 2017:
    
Some human beings think that they are close to achieving the power of God, and widespread fear exists that even this degree of power will corrupt. 

Researchers at London's Francis Crick Institute have been given the green light to experiment with and modify human embryos in the same controversial fashion that giant dogs and mini pet pigs have been created in laboratories. 

Known as Clustered Regularly Interspaced Palindromic Repeats (CRISPR), the technology strategically identifies specific genes, alters them and changes a living organism's DNA. 

Although banned in the United States, U.K. scientists are exploring methods of eradicating debilitating illness and abnormalities at the genetic, pre-birth level. 

Naturally, many critics point to the fact that the road to Hell is paved with good intentions and liken genetic modification of human beings to opening a veritable Pandora's Box. 

It's important to recognize that science isn't an exact science. The methods are often theoretically and include a tremendous amount of trial and error. 

Take, for example, researchers that attempted to cure cancer in laboratory mice at the genetic level. The gene they thought inhibited cancer cell growth ended up causing the mice to age and die prematurely.

 Putting The BDS Movement On The Defensive
From boycotting film festivals where Israeli films appear to pressuring artists not to perform in Israel; BDS has declared war on Israel and it's time to fight back.

 
 A recent open letter to FIFA by 174 Palestinian sports clubs called on world soccer's governing body to "immediately suspend the Israel Football Association's (IFA) membership over its inclusion of seven football teams based in illegal Israeli settlements." 

Israel's standing was set to be decided on May 11 at the FIFA Congress in Bahrain, but FIFA's executive council delayed the vote.

Some might downplay this development, saying, "So what? It's only sports." But the context of this anti-Israel campaign shows why it matters. 

What's surprising is not the Palestinian sports clubs' hypocritical request itself -- considering the massive human rights violations committed in Gaza, Palestinian Authority (PA)-controlled territory and the Muslim/Arab world in general -- but that they posted their open letter on the BDS movement's official website.

The BDS movement claims to stand for "freedom, justice and equality," but its singular goal is a one-state solution in Israel with a Muslim majority. In other words, the movement works to wipe away the world's only Jewish-majority state and replace it with a Muslim-majority country, adding to the 51 Muslim nations globally.

It's also clear that BDS is the de facto leader of the international political warfare campaign against Israel.

Revelation 12 - The Hottest Trending Topic on Google
http://www.therevelationsign.com/
On September 23, 2017 a sign will form in the heavens that fits the description of Revelation 12. What does this mean?
Thousands of people across the world believe that the Great Sign of Revelation 12 will reach a stage of completion on the 23rd September 2017. Many believe this sign could trigger some of the most astonishing series of events in the history of the human race.

What is the true verdict on this phenomena?
Revelation 12 - The Hottest Trending Topic on Google
"And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars: And she being with child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered. And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads. And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and did cast them to the earth: and the dragon stood before the woman which was ready to be delivered, for to devour her child as soon as it was born. And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up unto God, and to his throne. And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she hath a place prepared of God, that they should feed her there a thousand two hundred and threescore days."
Revelation 12 and the Great Sign is trending as one of the top 5 bible prophecy searches on Google in 2017. What is the reason for this and why has a bible passage that has been existent in the scriptures from the time of John's revelation on the isle of Patmos all of a sudden become a global obsession with many astronomical and bible prophecy researchers?

The Undeniable Sign Of Christ's Return
Next to the convergence of all end times signs, this is arguably the biggest sign of all.
The signs of the Second Coming are all around us. When His disciples asked Jesus to describe the signs, He gave them several. The Jewish people back in possession of Jerusalem (Luke 21:24-28)...  the Gospel preached throughout the world (Matthew 24:14)... the arrival of the exponential curve (Matthew 24:3-8)... and more. 

The Old Testament prophets also pointed to a number of signs. An increase in travel and knowledge (Daniel 12:4)... the rise of a united Europe (Daniel 2:42)... the rise of the Gog of Magog alliance (Ezekiel 38-39)... and more.

Today, all these signs are either present or in the process of being fulfilled. Yet for 1,800+ years, none of these signs were present. Think about that. None of the signs. But today? Today, they're all around us. 

Nevertheless, most of the world remains ignorant of the soon return of Jesus Christ. While I can understand why some people might overlook some of these signs, I don't understand how they could miss one sign in particular. 
It's a clear and unmistakable sign. I believe in and of itself, it not only shows the return of Jesus is near - I believe it proves the existence of God beyond all doubt. So what is this sign?
Israel.
That's right. The existence of modern day Israel is a clear and unmistakable sign Jesus is about to return.
Israel Back in the Land
Centuries in advance, God foretold the modern day nation of Israel. He promised to bring the Jewish people back into the land and re-establish the ancient nation. 
Moses declared God's promise when he said God would gather the Jewish people back from the nations where He scattered them and bring them back into the land of Israel (Deuteronomy 30:3-5).
Jesus also foretold the rebirth of Israel. He said Jerusalem would be destroyed and the Jewish people taken away to serve as slaves in all parts of the world (Luke 21: 24). He then said non-Jewish people would control Jerusalem until the Jewish people come back into possession of it (Luke 21:24).

Rebellion Grows Against Muslim Indoctrination In Schools
From coast to coast, parents are rebelling against what they describe as Islamic indoctrination of their children in public schools.

Posted with permission from WND
From coast to coast, parents are rebelling against what they describe as Islamic indoctrination of their children in public schools.
In Florida, for example, parents are protesting a newly approved textbook they say whitewashes Islam's violent history of conquest and subjugation, while in San Diego, an angry father confronted the city's school board about its partnership with the controversial Council on American-Islamic Relations in an "anti-bullying" program.
The Brevard County School Board in Florida has revised a history textbook that had been condemned by some parents for its selective treatment of Islam, but the new edition still has its critics, reported WKMG-TV in Orlando. The board decided Tuesday night by a 5-0 voted to adopt the ninth-grade 2018 World History book published by Pearson Prentice Hall.
The local chapter of the activist group ACT for America pressed for the revision in an effort "to protect against indoctrination," arguing the section about Islam ignored the religion's "true history" and painted Muhammad and the treatment of women favorably.
ACT for America's local leader, Roger Gangitano, told WKMG the new edition is an improvement, but the "problem remains that Islam is being portrayed in a far more favorable light than what would be 100 percent accurate," with parents calling it partially "incorrect," "incomplete" and "slanted."

Preach Scripture, Fill the Pews: Seekers Seek Truth
What's the number one thing we can do to fill our churches? It's probably not what you think
According to a new Gallup survey, the quality of the worship band isn't the main reason people go to church. Neither is it thriving kids' programs. Or even a dynamic personality behind the pulpit. 
No, respondents said that "Sermons that teach about Scripture" are the reason they show up on Sunday mornings.
As Christianity Today reports, "Researchers found that 82 percent of Protestants and 76 percent of all regular worshipers consider sermons' biblical lessons as a major factor that draws them to services." 
They also want application: "80 percent of Protestants and 75 percent of worshipers valued sermons that connect faith to everyday life."
Now it shouldn't really surprise us that people are hungry for truth in this post-truth, post-fact culture, especially when it's harder than ever to discern fact from fiction, reality from conspiracy theory.

The Foolish Embassy Expectations Game

When President Donald Trump heads to the Middle East later this month, the world will be primarily watching closely to see if he makes any of his trademark gaffes that set off a cultural land mine in Saudi Arabia or Israel. 
But the more important question is whether he will use the trip to actually make policy.
The expectation is that at some point during his visit, Trump will announce the convening of a new Middle East summit. Trump appears to believe in the "outside-in" approach to peace talks, in which Arab states like Saudi Arabia would play a role in trying to encourage and even muscle the Palestinians into negotiating in good faith with Israel at a peace conference. 
But whether or not that dubious plan is put into action, Trump's presence in Jerusalem is also being scrutinized for any hint that the U.S. is prepared to acknowledge his stay at the King David Hotel will be time spent in Israel's capital.
Though Trump repeatedly pledged during the 2016 campaign he would move the U.S. embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, it hasn't happened yet. 
It's still possible he could do it, perhaps even when he's there only a day before Israel celebrates Jerusalem Day--which this year marks the 50th anniversary of the city's reunification during the Six-Day War. But few in the know think this is going to happen.
In recent weeks, Trump has been listening to his more mainstream advisers such as Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and Secretary of Defense James Mattis. This has led him to take a more realistic attitude toward NATO, Russia and the conflict in Syria. 
It's also likely to mean he will heed their warnings that an embassy move would set off riots in the Muslim world rivaling those occurring in reaction to a Danish newspaper publishing cartoons of the Prophet Mohammed. That's a price that not even a Trump may be willing to pay to keep a promise

The Shifting Sands Of America's Moral Compass
In 2017, our notions of "right" and "wrong" are constantly shifting because they are not based on anything permanent.
Could it be possible that Americans are more concerned about declining standards of morality than most of us initially thought? 
A very surprising new survey conducted by LifeWay Research has discovered that a whopping 81 percent of Americans agree with this statement: "I am concerned about declining moral behavior in our nation." 
If you follow my work on a regular basis, you already know that moral decay is a theme that I keep coming back to time after time. 
To me it is quite obvious that moral behavior is deteriorating all around us, but I had no idea that so many other Americans were deeply concerned about the exact same thing.

The Man Who Was Beheaded The Day He Became A Believer
The untold stories of a new generation of Christian martyrs.
Most of us are familiar with the story of the 21 Coptic Christians from Egypt who held fast to their faith and were beheaded by ISIS in February, 2015. 
But did you know that only 20 of them were actually Copts from Egypt? Did you know that one of the martyrs was from Chad, and he had not been a Christian prior to the day of his beheading?
Although this story was previously reported, I had not heard it before this week. 
But at this week's World Summit in Defense of Persecuted Christians hosted by the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, which I had the privilege of attending, a Coptic leader shared the account. 
It is a remarkable story and yet another tribute to the faith of these martyred Copts.

Israel Ranked 15th Most Militarily Powerful Nation in World
Israel ranks among the top 25 military powers in the world -- but so do several of its historical and current adversaries. according to the latest military rankings published by military analytics website Global Firepower on Friday.
The website ranks a country's military capabilities based on 50 factors, among them: diversity and amount of weaponry, geographical position, available manpower, and whether the country is an actual or a suspected nuclear power.
Israel came in at number 15 on the list of 106 nations. Its annual defense budget is $15.5 billion and it commands 160,000 active frontline personnel. 
But the Jewish state ranked beneath Egypt, at number 11, and Turkey, at number 8.

Saudi Arabia isn't known for gender equality. In fact, the Saudi government's idea of fair play among the sexes is ensuring women their husbands can only have three more wives. 
Saudi women truly have zero rights in society. Ranking Saudi Arabia among the 10 worst countries for women, the Toronto Star wrote,
In oil-rich Saudi Arabia, women are treated as lifelong dependents, under the guardianship of a male relative. Deprived of the right to drive a car or mix with men publicly, they are confined to strictly segregated lives on pain of severe punishment.
So, imagine the surprise and dismay the world is now exhibiting with the knowledge the United Nations has elected Saudi Arabia as a member of its Women's Rights Commission called the "Commission on the Status of Women."
Geneva-based UN Watch president Hillel Neuer likened the election to, "making an arsonist into the town Fire Chief!" Neuer went on a Twitter tirade to drive home the significance of his opposition to allowing Saudi Arabia to have a seat anywhere near a women's rights council.

Remember scenes from movies like Mission Impossible or Minority Report where people are subjected to microchip implants? 
Well, it's not just in the movies anymore--it's real. Ask the employees of the Swedish company Epicenter, based in Stockholm, where it's routine to have your hand implanted as part of your new employee on-boarding process. 
The company gives its workers the choice of an implant that will operate printers and open doors--you can even buy items from the vending machine with it.
Apparently, it is an extremely popular undertaking that so far, about 150 of the 2,000 employees have opted for. 
Epicenter CEO and co-founder Patrick Mesterton says, "The biggest benefit I think is convenience," as he waves his own hand to unlock a door. "It basically replaces a lot of things you have, other communication devices, whether it be credit cards or keys."

Islam
Muslims Want 'Blasphemers' Identified And Prosecuted... Worldwide!
 Pakistan, historically a U.S. ally, is seeking to introduce what is in effect a global Islamic blasphemy law that prohibits any Internet material critical of Islam.
Bob Unruh
Posted with permission from WND
For years, Islamic nations have successfully pressed the United Nations to pass non-binding resolutions condemning "defamation of religion."
In nations such as Pakistan, the penalty for "blasphemy" against Islam or its prophet is death. While the sentence has not been imposed in recent years, some people who have been accused of blasphemy have been murdered by Muslim vigilantes before they can get to court.
Reuters reported just days ago an estimated 65 defendants, lawyers or judges involved in blasphemy cases have been murdered since 1990.
WND reported seven years ago the defamation resolutions introduced in the U.N. by the 57-member Organization of Islamic Cooperation were losing support.
But now a worldwide Christian ministry that operates in dozens of Muslim-dominated countries warns a new effort is under way.
"House of War: Islam's Jihad Against the World" conveys what the West needs to know about Islam and the violent, expansionary ideology that seeks the subjugation and destruction of other faiths, cultures and systems of government
"The aim is not simply to remove anything posted on the Internet deemed offensive to Islam, but to find out who posted it and prosecute them," says the non-profit charity Barnabas Aid, which assists persecuted Christians globally.

The Candy Bar That Blew Barghouti's Cover
Palestinian incitement against Israel resumed this week after it exposed the leader of the Palestinian hunger strike sneaking a candy bar in his prison cell.
The Palestinian Journalists Syndicate (PJS), a body dominated by loyalists to Palestinian Authority (PA) President Mahmoud Abbas, has resumed its incitement against Israeli media outlets and journalists.
On May 7, Israeli authorities released a video showing imprisoned Fatah leader Marwan Barghouti, who is leading a "hunger strike" of more than 1,000 inmates held in Israeli prisons, secretly eating a candy bar in the bathroom of his prison cell. 
Israeli media outlets and journalists, like many of their Western colleagues, reported on the video, which has seriously embarrassed Barghouti and many other Palestinians.
The prisoners' "hunger strike" is not about torture or denial of medical treatment. The prisoners seek expanded visitation rights, better access to public phones and more access to higher education.
But Barghouti, who began leading the "hunger strike" on April 17, has more on his mind than incarceration privileges.
The "hunger strike" is actually a strike against Mahmoud Abbas, who Barghouti believes has marginalized him, denying him an official senior position in Fatah.
It is worth noting that no one in the Israeli media was involved in the secret filming of Barghouti. Nor did any Israeli journalist know in advance about the authorities' decision to film Barghouti. 
All the Israeli media did was report on the release of the scandalous video, together with analysis about the implications of the video on the Palestinian prisoners' "hunger strike."
Yet the moment the video appeared in the Israeli media, Palestinian Authority officials and several Palestinian institutions and groups rushed to make serious and unfounded charges against the Israeli media for reporting on the video.

Down The Slippery Slope: Canada May Extend "Right To Die" To The Mentally Ill
The expression "mental illness" is a broad category that opens up tens of thousands to the dangers of assisted suicide.
We could have predicted this: Canada may extend the "right to die" to the mentally ill. It's an evil idea.
In 2015, Canada legalized physician-assisted suicide. We have talked about the Canadian decision several times on BreakPoint. In March, in fact, we talked about how many Canadian doctors who had originally indicated a willingness to be the "physician" in "physician-assisted suicide" were having second thoughts.
Now, there's a campaign to extend what Canada calls "physician assistance in dying" beyond the terminally ill to include the mentally ill. This comes as no surprise to those who have followed the trajectory of Belgian and Dutch laws, which have served as a model for the rest of the world.
Not only is this a terrible idea, it's also what's to be expected if, as Wesley J. Smith told Fox News, "society broadly accepts the agenda of killing as an acceptable end to human suffering . . . We eliminate suffering by eliminating the sufferers."
But even if you don't believe in the sanctity and dignity of human life, and even if you could rationalize physician-assisted suicide for the terminally ill, extending this "right" to the mentally-ill is an idea that should be resisted at all costs.
The reason why lies in how "mentally ill" is defined. The expression "mental illness" is a broad category that includes different psychiatric disorders such as schizophrenia, bi-polar disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, and clinical depression, to name but a few.

Why People Attend Church
The Gallup Organization decided to ask people who actually attend church why they attended, and the answers they got are helpful . . . sort of.
It's a pretty straightforward question. But even among Christians--especially Christian leaders, writers, and pundits who make a living commenting on such things--the answers are many and varied. 
People attend church because of culture and tradition, because of the music, because of a sense of community, because it's the right thing to do, because of the children's program, because of the hospitality and feeling of warmth and well-being.
The Gallup Organization decided to ask people who actually attend church why they attended, and the answers they got are helpful . . . sort of.
Gallup asked people if various aspects of worship were a "major factor," a "minor factor," or "not a factor" in their church attendance. 
About 76 percent of respondents said "sermons or talks that teach you more about scripture" was a major factor. If that's all you knew about the survey, you might say that Bible-based expository preaching was the way to fill pews. 
Such a finding warms the hearts of the theologically conservative. And they would not be wrong. Lots of the largest churches in the country follow that strategy.
But, as they say in infomercials: "Wait, there's more!"
Almost as many people--75 percent--said "sermons or talks that help you connect religion to your own life" were a major factor. 
What does this mean? Are we talking about topical Bible studies? "How to have a better marriage" ? "What the Bible says about money" ? Or could we be straying even further away from expository preaching into Joel Osteen territory, into what Christian Smith has called "therapeutic moralistic deism"?

Life Insurance For Terrorists? America's 1st Somali Legislator Says 'Yes'
In December 2015, Syed Farook shot and killed 14 people and injured 22 at an office Christmas party. Before doing so he made sure his life insurance policies worth $250,000 were valid.

She burst on the scene last August when she upset a 44-year incumbent Democrat in the Minnesota state primary elections to become the nation's first female Muslim state legislator.
Ilhan Omar, the 34-year-old community organizer who came to America as a refugee from Somalia, was touted by Democrats as a model success story.
"From a refugee camp to the State Capitol with intelligence and insight," beamed former Minneapolis Mayor R.T. Rybak, who endorsed Omar. "This is a wonderful story to tell as Americans, and a great source of pride for the state of Minnesota's open arms."
But on Thursday Omar made her mark in another way.
She was one of only two members of the Minnesota State House to vote against a bill that would allow life insurance companies to deny payouts to the beneficiaries of terrorists who die in violent attacks on Americans.
The House voted 127-2 to pass the bill, which now moves on to a vote in the State Senate.
Omar, who represents the heavily immigrant Cedar Riverside area of Minneapolis, was joined by fellow Democratic Rep. John Lesch of St. Paul in voting against the bill.
Omar's vote sticks out because at least 42 Somali refugees have been confirmed by the FBI to have left the U.S. to join overseas terrorist organizations, including al-Shabab, the al-Qaida affiliate in Somalia, and ISIS in Syria and Iraq.
Dozens of other Somali-Americans have been tried and/or convicted of providing material support to overseas terrorists.

A Secular Rapper Calls American Pastors To Account
You know we're in trouble when a secular rapper urges pastors to get back to preaching that the Lord is a jealous God of "discipline and obedience."
You know we're in trouble when a secular rapper urges pastors to get back to preaching that the Lord is a jealous God of "discipline and obedience." 
As a recent article declared, "Chart-Topping Rapper Kendrick Lamar Is Preaching More Spiritual Truth Than Most of the Dead Churches In America." So sad, but so true.
Lamar is a 29-year-old, Grammy Award-winning rapper, and his lyrics are typical, hardcore rap: filled with content, packed with protest, laced with profanity. 
Suffice it to say that he is not a pristine pure, born-again, Christian rapper. Yet he sees a gaping hole in many churches today, and it mirrors his experience as a boy.
In an email to Hip Hop website DJ Booth he wrote, "I went to a local church some time ago, and it appalled me that the same program was in practice. 
A program that I seen as a kid the few times I was in service. Praise, dance. Worship. (Which is beautiful.) Pastor spewing the idea of someone's season is approaching. The idea of hope."
He continued, "After being heavily in my studies these past few years, I've finally figured out why I left those services feeling spiritually unsatisfied as a child. 
I discovered more truth. But simple truth. Our God is a loving God. Yes. He's a merciful God. Yes. But he's even more so a God of DISCIPLE. OBEDIENCE. A JEALOUS God. . . ."

The Logic Behind Israel's Presence In Judea And Samaria
No area has impacted Israel in modern politics more than Judea and Samaria.
Fifty years ago, Israel faced a looming attack from Egypt, Jordan and Syria. But on the morning of June 5, 1967, Israel's air force launched a pre-emptive strike against these enemies, and destroyed most of their aircraft in a matter of hours. 
During the next five days, Israel's ground forces conquered the Sinai, the Gaza Strip, Judea and Samaria (the West Bank), the Old City of Jerusalem, and the Golan Heights.
Israel eventually pulled back from the Sinai Peninsula and made peace with Egypt, thereby ending its regional isolation. It also made peace with Jordan in the early 1990s, and withdrew from the Gaza Strip in 2005.
In contrast, Israel annexed East Jerusalem and the Golan Heights because of the historical and religious value of the former, and the strategic importance of the latter.
No area, however, has impacted Israel more than Judea and Samaria. 
Because of its ongoing administration of large parts of this territory, Israel faces serious international criticism -- and is often called an "occupier." So, is maintaining a presence in Judea and Samaria actually worth it?

ISIS And Al Qaeda May Join Forces To Spread Extremist Disease
An unholy union between the two largest terror groups in the world may be in the works.
Just like the Black Plague spread from country to country on the backs of rats during the Middle Ages, the radical Islamic disease known as ISIS may level its highest death toll yet as jihadist fighters are driven from the battlefields.
As U.S.-led coalition forces and the Russian-backed Syrian military regain the massive swaths of land ISIS claimed as its "caliphate," the terror group has opened negotiations with al Qaeda to join forces. 
The unholy union would open the door for thousands of battlefield hardened jihadists to utilize underground networks and hidden terror cells.
Although the two terror groups have differing ideologies about the role of Islamic extremism, Western security leaders are well aware that ISIS sprang out of al Qaeda. 
ISIS placed a high value on holding territorial lands and have enjoyed far greater comfort with inflicting civilian casualties, even Muslims. 
With roots running back to Osama bin Laden, al Qaeda's tactics have been to garner financial resources and act out surgical terror strikes such as the 9/11 attacks. 
But with the fall of ISIS-held cities imminent, the groups see a path to an unprecedented global jihad as thousands of insurgents relocate or return to Europe, Africa and North America.
Spreading Mayhem
One of the primary concerns pointed out by experts such as Army Lt. Gen. Michael K. Nagata is that the pool of terror recruits has grown enormously and they will spread the jihad.
"A lot of what comes out of ISIS is just 'Go where you can and kill who you can," Gen. Nagata said. "Even as they acted to save their skin by fleeing Iraq and Syria, there's still a latent desire to wreak havoc. And, they'll find an outlet for that."
The potential merger with al Qaeda would provide resources and support in countries such as Yemen, Saudi Arabia, Nairobi, Kenya, Tanzania, Mali, Nigeria, Indonesia, Philippines as well as cells in Europe and North America. 
To refer back to the plague metaphor, these rats are getting on ships and joining forces with vermin in ports around the globe. Other factions may also see an uptick in their ranks as the land war comes to an end.

Palestinians: Abbas's "Culture of Peace"

Palestinian Authority (PA) President Mahmoud Abbas may soon be known for his sense of humor. Like many Palestinians, Abbas believes that Westerners will swallow his lies wholesale. 
Abbas, for instance, ended his May 3 meeting with US President Donald Trump with the following whopper: "We are raising our youth, our children, our grandchildren on a culture of peace."
Abbas did not provide further details about the "culture of peace" upon which Palestinian children are being raised. Nor did anyone bother to ask Abbas or any member of his entourage to provide examples of the "culture of peace" in Palestinian society. Yet major Western media outlets were quick to publish Abbas's unmistakable lie.
Apparently, like his predecessor, Yasser Arafat, Abbas is convinced that Palestinians can fool "all of the people, all of the time" about their true goals and intentions. Arafat lied to Presidents George W. Bush and Bill Clinton when he told them that he and the Palestinian Authority were promoting peace and coexistence with Israel. 
Under Arafat, anti-Israel incitement in the Palestinian media, schools and mosques intensified until Palestinians waged the Second Intifada in September 2000. This intifada was the result of seven years of vicious incitement and indoctrination that came after the inception of the PA. 
In a truly ironic turn of events, the Oslo Accords, signed between Israel and the PLO in 1993, gave the Palestinians media outlets, including television and radio stations, which were then used to amplify hatred against Israel and Jews on a daily basis.

Trump's Religious Freedom Order: Once Again Politics Downstream From Culture
President Trump's long-anticipated order on religious freedom reminds us that salvation won't come on Air Force One.
Yesterday, on the National Day of Prayer, President Trump signed an executive order on religious liberty.
Unfortunately, though it was a "first step," it was a small one, an order Ryan Anderson of the Heritage Foundation called "woefully inadequate."
Now, let me be clear: there are things in the order worth praising. The president said that "No American should be forced to choose between the dictates of the federal government and the tenets of their faith."
I couldn't agree more. And I'm thankful that at least so far this administration, unlike the last one, isn't forcing that choice on Americans. 
Still, protecting religious freedom requires more than just noble sentiments. And here is where the executive order disappoints. 
After directing the federal government to "vigorously enforce Federal law's robust protections for religious freedom," the measures set forth in the order are, well, less than vigorous.
The order instructs the Secretaries of the Treasury, Labor, and HHS to "consider amending existing regulations" to address "conscience-based objections" to the HHS mandate.
Words like "consider" aren't exactly a guarantee that anything will change. 
As Ryan Anderson told The Atlantic, the "regulatory relief" promised to groups like the Little Sisters of the Poor may very well amount to, "Well, you have to do it, because [the Supreme Court] told you to do it," but, it "doesn't move the ball" on religious liberty.
Nor does the emphasis on the Johnson Amendment, which prohibits churches and other charitable organizations from endorsing political candidates.

Target Doubles Down On 'Gay' Pride Despite Losses In Bathroom War
Rainbow-themed merchandise reflects retail giant's aggressive LGBT stance.
Alicia Powe 
Posted with permission from WND
Despite the drastic financial blowback Target Corporation has been weathering since announcing its plan last year to allow men to enter women's bathroom facilities, the retail giant is continuing full-speed ahead in its pursuit of LGBT social activism, all in the name of "inclusivity."
For the second year, Target is using a #TakePride hashtag on social media to promote its rainbow-themed online merchandise. The retailer's "pride" paraphernalia include tee-shirts, swim trunks, flip-flops, headphones, iPhone cases and an assortment of other products emblazoned with LBGT logos.
In fact, the retail giant, second in size only to Walmart, has become more well-known for its aggressive support of the LGBT agenda and other progressive policies than any other major retailer:
Target came under criticism in August 2014 for signing onto an amicus brief to redefine marriage (in the 7th Circuit).
It was among the first companies to advertise a homosexual "wedding registry" in 2012.
The same year Target exploited its clothing lines to propagandize the LGBT agenda, selling "Love is Love" tee-shirts to raise money for a group working to defeat a same-sex marriage ban in Minnesota.
In August 2015, Target eliminated "boys" and "girls" signs from its toys and bedding departments to transcend "unnecessary" gender stereotypes and rid its toy departments of anything that could reflect "gender."
Target declared support in September 2015 for the "Equality Act," which ensures that religious freedom bows to the LGBT agenda.
"Everyone deserves to feel like they belong," read a statement from the retailer announcing the intensely controversial transgender bathroom policy, which turned half of Target's red bull's-eye logo into a "gay"-pride rainbow.

"PNW Video Update - Trump Could Trigger Gog and Magog Prophecy"
http://www.prophecynewswatch.com/


Demography Is Destiny - The Muslim Baby Boom
It's been said that demography is destiny. If true, and if current trends continue, then the future will look very Muslim indeed
A baby boom on the horizon could radically change our world. Here's another connection between family and faith explained.
It's been said that demography is destiny. If true, and if current trends continue, then the future will look very Muslim indeed.
According to the respected Pew Research Center, as reported by Christianity Today, between the years 2030 and 2035, for the first time in history, the total number of babies born to Christian mothers will be fewer than those born to Muslim mothers.
While the difference may seem relatively small--225 million births for Muslims to 224 million for Christians, it reflects a demographic pivot that, in just 20 years, could change the world.
Globally, Muslims and Christians, in that order, have more babies on average than any other group. "By 2060," CT notes, "such growth will result in the global population of Christians and Muslims approaching parity--totaling 3.1 billion and 3 billion, respectively--with each tradition accounting for nearly 1 in 3 people on earth.
Over the 45-year period, the Christian population is predicted to hold steady at 31 percent [of the world population], while the Muslim population is predicted to rise from 24 percent today to the same level."

Trumps Ultimate Negotiation - Israel/Palestinian Peace Deal
"We want to create peace between Israel and the Palestinians. We will get it done. We will be working so hard to get it done,".. President Trump.
President Donald Trump and Palestinian Authority (PA) President Mahmoud Abbas met for the first time at the White House Wednesday as Trump's nascent administration ventures down the road of its predecessors, making a fresh bid to broker an Israeli-Palestinian peace deal.
"We want to create peace between Israel and the Palestinians. We will get it done. We will be working so hard to get it done," Trump said alongside Abbas during a press conference.
Later, in a luncheon with senior advisers, Trump expressed even greater confidence in achieving peace.
"It's something that, I think, is frankly maybe not as difficult as people have thought over the years," he said.
Trump made a similar claim in an interview last week with Reuters.
"I want to see peace with Israel and the Palestinians," the president said. "There is no reason there's not peace between Israel and the Palestinians--none whatsoever."
In his remarks at Wednesday's press conference, Abbas flattered the American leader, expressing confidence in Trump's "great negotiating ability" and saying he looks forward to working with Trump to "come to that deal, to that historical agreement to bring about peace."

Opening Closed Minds The Chick-Fil-A Way: Friendship, Not Confrontation
Chick-fil-A's president has set an incredible example of how to be a peaceable witness with those whom we disagree.
A new fast-food restaurant on campus should have been a no-brainer. Sadly, closed minds don't work that way.
Some college students at Pittsburgh's Duquesne University are claiming, like Chicken Little, that the sky is falling. Sadly, given these crazy times, that's no longer really news.
We've seen a steady stream of reports about scholars being driven off campus by mobs of triggered students, of speakers being disinvited or losing announced awards because of their Judeo-Christian beliefs--all in the name of tolerance, diversity, and "safe spaces"!
Truly, though, the kerfuffle at Duquesne shows what we're up against. In March the university announced that the popular fast food chain Chick-fil-A would be opening in the Catholic school's main food court.

U.S. Green Party Goes All In For Islam
The hardcore left has been in bed with Islam for years, but the alliance is now more out in the open.
Leo Hohmann
Posted with permission from WND
The U.S. Green Party has put out a briefing paper for party activists instructing them to work with the Council on American-Islamic Relations and other Islamists in fighting "Islamophobia" and "oppression in all its forms."
According to the document, "Islamophobia" is a "contrived fear or prejudice fomented by the existing Eurocentric and Orientalist global power structure" and should be treated as a type of racism.
The fact that Islam is a religion/political ideology and not a race seems not to stand in the way of the Green Party's burgeoning alliance with Islam, says Robert Spencer, author of the Jihad Watch blog and several best-selling books about Islam.

The deterioration of national moral character means inevitable tragedy.
That was the message to Belshazzar, the Babylonian King, who was celebrating in revelry, extravagance and luxurious passion when he made a momentous and daring decision.
In Daniel chapter 5 of the Bible, it is recorded that at the height of a tremendous festival he ordered the vessels of gold and silver that were taken from the Temple in Jerusalem to be brought.
Belshazzar would use them as wine goblets, while in his orgy he praised his own gods. It was an open defiance of the living God of Israel whose moral requirements were known throughout the world.
Suddenly, a ghostly hand appeared in front of everyone to write on the wall of the palace banquet hall. It was a message of judgment for a people who were godless in their behaviors.
As they drank from cups dedicated to God's service, the irony was that sin's work of dissipation had filled the cup of their lives and was overflowing.
The hand writing upon the wall was God's own, saying, "Mene, mene, tekel, upharsin"  meaning "numbered, numbered, weighed in the balances and found wanting; your kingdom is gone."
Before that very night would end, King Cyrus of Persia would attack Babylon; Belshazzar would be slain, and Darius given the kingdom.
The truths of this story are self-evident for our own time.

Mystery Babylon: Unlocking the Bible’s Greatest Prophetic Mystery is an in-depth look at the prophecy of Revelation 17 and 18. Richardson dissects the longest prophecy in the New Testament in order to make sense of these deeply elusive and profoundly controversial passages.
VIDEDO
As Turkey's president, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, continues to consolidate power in the formerly secular nation, one of the foremost experts on Middle East geopolitics is sounding a desperate warning.
Erdogan is just getting started
"I've been saying this for 12 years," said Joel Richardson, New York Times bestselling author of "The Islamic Antichrist" and "Mideast Beast." "I've said for years: ‘Watch Turkey. Watch Turkey. It's going to become a radical nationalist Islamist nation.'"
Richardson made the comments on a recent episode of the "Shaun Tabatt Show" as the author discussed his newest book, "Mystery Babylon." Though Richardson believes Saudi Arabia and its city of Mecca is the real "Mystery Babylon," he says Turkey is turning out to be an end times actor in its own right, and the tensions between the Sunni Islamic powers of Turkey and Saudi Arabia will shape the Middle East in the coming years.
Richardson's warning of an Islamist, anti-democratic Turkey is now widely accepted among geopolitical analysts, many of whom are deeply concerned the NATO nation, once spoken of as a potential member of the European Union, is being systematically transformed into an anti-Western power.

Once the most wealthy and developed nation on the continent, South Africa is quickly facing economic collapse and brimming with racial tensions that many fear could spill over into civil war.
Stoking the fears of race wars is South Africa's President Jacob Zuma who recently held a rally for 20,000 people in which he warned the white population that he was coming for their land.
"They are telling us that we will be breaking the law when we take the land -- but they broke the law first by stealing our land!"
Zuma had earlier informed the South African parliament that he planned to introduce a new law allowing land seizures to go ahead without compensation, saying all blacks should unite to "take back the land".
Mzwandile Masina, a prominent member of the ruling African National Congress (ANC), made his own incendiary contribution, warning that 'we will crush' anyone who stands 'in the way of nation building'.
Whites, who comprise four million out of a total South African population of 50 million, should expect that things will be 'very, very rough' for them, Masina warned. He told the crowd that while the white population is small in number, "we are many".
The ANC is currently training thousands of 'national rural youth service corps' at military bases. There are reports that volunteers on the two-year programmes have been promised land.

Can Trump Survive Abbas?

Share this article:
There was something of a motivational speaker about President Donald Trump as he welcomed Mahmoud Abbas, the gerontocrat at the helm of the Palestinian Authority (PA) for the last 12 years, to the White House May 3.
At their joint appearance, Trump was confident and beaming. Abbas, in turn, came across as eager and respectful. As Trump surely knows, to sell something you need to believe in it--and to look like you believe in it.
In tone and body language, both leaders pulled that off in their comments on prospects for a final Israeli-Palestinian peace deal, even if they came across as overly self-conscious in doing so.
On the face of it, there is no doubting Trump's personal investment in securing what he sees as the ultimate deal.
"Over the course of my lifetime, I've always heard that perhaps the toughest deal to make is the deal between the Israelis and the Palestinians--let's see if we can prove them wrong," Trump declared.
Whether his administration has the mettle and the patience to pull off a lasting agreement that will suffer many false starts along the way, during a process facing the implacable opposition of people far more devious than the congressional Republicans who derailed the repeal of Obamacare, remains very much an open question.
For his part, as he stood alongside Trump, Abbas gave the impression of playing ball more than he ever did than when President Barack Obama was in charge.
During Obama's second term, Abbas refused direct talks with Israel following the collapse of the 2013-2014 negotiations, pursuing a policy of sulky unilateralism that aimed to secure international recognition of a Palestinian state.
"We believe that we are capable and able to bring about success to our efforts because, Mr. President, you have the determination and you have the desire to see it come to fruition and become successful," Abbas gushed.

UN Condemns Israel's Presence In Jerusalem To Mark Israel's Independence Day
As Israel celebrated its 69th Independence Day on Tuesday, the UN once again found opportunity to condemn the Jewish nation on this historic day.
UN Condemns Israel's Presence In Jerusalem To Mark Israel's Independence Day

News Image BY BEN COHEN/ALGEMEINER.COM MAY 03, 2017
As Israel celebrated its 69th Independence Day on Tuesday, UNESCO -- the cultural arm of the United Nations -- voted by a 22-10 margin (with 23 abstentions and three absences) to approve a resolution that condemned what it called Israel's "illegal" presence in Jerusalem.
However, the number of "yes" votes was down from similar past resolutions -- a development one watchdog group viewed as progress.
"Israel lost the vote today, but it did score a moral victory by winning more votes than ever before, including from leading democratic members like the US, Britain, Germany, Italy, and the Netherlands," Hillel Neuer -- executive director of the Geneva-based UN Watch NGO -told The Algemeiner.
"The Palestinians at UNESCO are hemorrhaging support for their ritual anti-Israel resolutions: last April they had 33 yes votes, then in October it was down to 24, and today it's down to 22.
And once again, India -- an increasingly important friend of Israel -- has voted to abstain, showing that its recent break from decades of lockstep voting with the Arab states is now a fixed policy."
The resolution passed on Tuesday stated that "all legislative and administrative measures and actions taken by Israel, the occupying Power, which have altered or purport to alter the character and status of the Holy City of Jerusalem, and in particular the 'basic law' on Jerusalem, are null and void and must be rescinded forthwith."
Holy sites outside Jerusalem were also included in the resolution. Two shrines sacred to Jews -- the Cave of the Patriarchs in Hebron and Rachel's Tomb in Bethlehem -- were defined by the resolution as the "two Palestinian sites of Al-Haram Al-Ibrahimi/Tomb of the Patriarchs in Al-Khalil/Hebron and the Bilal Ibn Rabah Mosque/Rachel's Tomb in Bethlehem." Both, the resolution said, "are an integral part of the Occupied Palestinian Territory."
The resolution also "deplored" what it described as "the continuous Israeli closure of the Gaza Strip, which harmfully affects the free and sustained movement of personnel, students and humanitarian relief items."
Israeli officials were likely to be pleased with the list of countries that either abstained from the vote or opposed the resolution.
Abstentions included Albania -- which has a Muslim majority -- and four African states with whom Israel now enjoys revived relations: Ghana, Guinea, Kenya and Uganda.
The US voted against the resolution, as did key European nations like France, Germany, Greece, Lithuania and the Netherlands.
There was a similar lack of consensus among the Latin American delegates.

Paraguay voted against, while Argentina -- an ally of Iran before current President Mauricio Macri defeated incumbent Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner in the November 2015 election -- also abstained.
Other abstentions included the Dominican Republic and El Salvador. Brazil was the only Latin American country to vote "yes."
Arab and Muslim states, among them Qatar and Iran -- both of whom have extensive financial and political ties with the Palestinian terrorist organization Hamas -- voted overwhelmingly in favor

Climate Activists Suggest Parents Should Be Penalized For Having "Extra Kids"
"Bill Nye Saves The Earth" program asks if it would be a good idea to have the government penalize having "extra kids"
The myth that is overpopulation is already starting to unravel before our eyes, just as predicted years ago. The propaganda will only work on the masses for a few more years before the mathematical reality will render it impossible to believe anymore.
Birth rates have now officially declined below the necessary 2.1 replacement rate to maintain population in most every developed country in the world, with some Asian country birth rates now so low, their governments are actually attempting to pay the population to reproduce. China even relaxed its one child policy to two children. (They did the math.)

Are Our Universities Producing Spoiled Brats?
Schools are now responding to student tantrums: If you threaten to throw a fit, we will back down, post haste. We do not want to get you upset! There are plenty of fine universities in America today where the students are challenged and stretched. But all too many schools are coddling their students rather than challenging them, thereby producing graduating classes filled with lots of spoiled brats.
how bad are things on some campuses?
Not only are schools offering coloring books and crayons during finals week to help students deal with stress.
Not only are schools providing safe-spaces where students can go to escape from the conflicts of the real world.
Not only are schools issuing guidelines for campus speech, replete with the latest trigger warnings to guard against microaggressions.
All that is absurd enough.
But schools are now responding to student tantrums: If you threaten to throw a fit, we will back down, post haste. We do not want to get you upset!
In the home, parents know how to deal children who throw tantrums. They don't give in to the screaming and crying and foot stomping.

Saudi Arabia's 'Lavish' Gift to Indonesia: Radical Islam
The Saudi influence has taken a serious toll on Indonesia, 90% of whose 250 million people are Sunnis.
Accompanied by a 1,500-strong entourage, Saudi King Salman bin Abdul Aziz arrived in Indonesia on March 1 for a nine-day gala tour. He was welcomed warmly not only as the monarch of one of the world's richest countries, but as the custodian of Islam's two holiest cities, Mecca and Medina.
While appearing to be taking a holiday rather than embarking on an official state visit -- the 81-year-old sovereign spent six days at a resort in Bali -- the king had some serious business to attend to.
In what was advertised as an effort to promote "social interaction" between Saudi Arabia and Indonesia -- with His Majesty announcing a billion-dollar aid package, unlimited flights between the two countries and the allotment of 50,000 extra spots per year for Indonesian pilgrims to make the hajj to Mecca and Medina - it seems as if the real purpose of the trip was to promote and enhance Salafism, an extremist Sunni strain, in the world's largest Muslim country, frequently hailed in the West as an example of a moderate Islamic society.
Jakarta-based journalist Krithika Varagur, writing in The Atlantic on the second day of the king's visit, describes Saudi efforts in Indonesia:
"Since 1980, Saudi Arabia has devoted millions of dollars to exporting its strict brand of Islam, Salafism, to historically tolerant and diverse Indonesia.
It has built more than 150 mosques (albeit in a country that has about 800,000), a huge free university in Jakarta, and several Arabic language institutes; supplied more than 100 boarding schools with books and teachers (albeit in a country estimated to have between 13,000 and 30,000 boarding schools); brought in preachers and teachers; and disbursed thousands of scholarships for graduate study in Saudi Arabia."

Breaking Updates For May 01, 2017
San Francisco Grid Failure Offers Preview Of EMP Threat
What if next time, the power goes out not for seven hours, but seven days?
Paul Bremmer
Posted with permission from WND
For seven hours last Friday, San Francisco was in chaos. A fire in a utility company substation caused a power outage that knocked out traffic lights, cable cars, elevators and computer systems.
At least 88,000 Pacific Gas and Electric Co. customers were left without power for most of the workday.
Employees in the city's financial district had to go home for the day as they found themselves unable to do business. Many retailers shut their doors as well, unable to accept credit card payments using their electronic card readers. Major traffic jams plagued the city as motorists were forced to treat every intersection as a four-way stop.
However, there were no reported deaths or major injuries associated with the outage, and all power was restored to customers within eight hours.
But what if next time is different? What if next time, the power goes out not for seven hours, but seven days? What if it goes out not merely in part of San Francisco, but the entire Western half of the United States?

Technology's Dark Side: Isolation And Depression
Thanks to technology Americans are more isolated than they have ever been before.
Do you ever feel like you have been completely abandoned by the world? Do you struggle with feelings of loneliness, isolation and depression? If so, you are far from alone.
Thanks to technology Americans are more isolated than they have ever been before, and as you will see below, this is really starting to cause a major national crisis. Humans were designed to be social creatures, and researchers have found that a lack of interaction with others can cause major mental, emotional and social problems.
Not only that, it can also lead to premature death. We actually have a need to love others and to be loved by them, and if those needs are not met the consequences can be quite dramatic.
Unfortunately, our society has evolved to the point where we hardly interact with one another anymore. First of all, the size of the average household has declined from about 4.5 people to about 2.5 people over the past 100 years, and we lead the world in the number of one person households.
So for most of us, the number of people that we interact with in our homes is quite limited.
For children, at least there is quite a bit of interaction with others at school, but once you become an adult things are very different.

Donald Trump Disappoints The Anti-Semites
Donald Trump delivers a speech in honor of Holocaust Remembrance Day, and the anti-Semites are up in arms. He is not the man they thought he was.
In reality, he never was that man, which was more a projection of their own ideology than a right assessment of his. As Sam Kestenbaum reported on the Jewish Forward, "Trump Gives A Holocaust Speech -- And The 'Alt Right' Screams 'Betrayal'."
How, exactly, did Trump betray the "alt-right"?
In his speech, he said, "The State of Israel is an eternal monument to the undying strength of the Jewish people. The fervent dream that burned in the hearts of the oppressed is now filled with the breath of life, and the Star of David waves atop a great nation arisen from the desert."
This was certainly in keeping with his campaign speeches, in which he pledged to be a great friend of Israel and guaranteed that he would move the American embassy in Israel to Jerusalem.
Trump commended the late Elie Wiesel, perhaps the most famous Holocaust survivor, affirming his call that "we must bear witness." Trump spoke to the survivors who were there, people who witnessed "the Nazi genocide of the Jewish people."
And he denounced Holocaust denial, saying, "Denying the Holocaust is only one of many forms of dangerous anti-Semitism that continues all around the world. We've seen anti-Semitism on university campuses, in the public square, and in threats against Jewish citizens.

Ezekiel's Bones Live - Israel Prepares To Celebrate Independence Day
Israel's population continues to grow as it prepares to celebrate the country's 69th Independence Day.
Israel has approximately 8.68 million residents, more than 10 times the population at its founding in 1948, and is on track to reach more than 15.2 million residents by 2048, the Israeli Central Bureau of Statistics reported Thursday ahead of the country's 69th Independence Day.
Currently, there are 6.48 million Jewish residents in Israel, accounting for 74.7 percent of the population, and 1.81 million Arab residents, comprising 20.8 percent.
Permanent residents who, according to the Interior Ministry's Population Registry, are neither Jewish nor Arab--including most non-Jewish immigrants, many of whom are non-Arab Christians or have no religious affiliation--make up 4.5 percent of the Israeli population. The figures do not take into account foreign workers and others not considered permanent residents.
Israel's population has grown by 159,000 residents since Independence Day 2016, an increase of about 2 percent. The past year saw the birth of 174,000 babies and the arrival of some 30,000 new immigrants, while about 44,000 Israeli residents died.

Turning Science Into A Religion
Science is not God, so why do so many people keep trying to turn it into a religion?
This article is likely to get a lot of people out there quite angry.
In our world today, many have become convinced that science has all of the answers to humanity's most important questions, and those that question the high priests of this new religion (scientists) are often accused of a form of "blasphemy".
We saw this clearly on display last Saturday when protesters gathered in Washington D.C. and in about 600 other cities worldwide for "the March for Science".
Those of us that are skeptical and that don't necessarily buy into the scientific orthodoxy of the day were accused of "ignoring facts" and being "climate deniers" by various speakers at these protests.
But of course the truth is that scientific theories have always been in flux all throughout history, and this will continue to be the case as time moves forward.
Google defines science as "the intellectual and practical activity encompassing the systematic study of the structure and behavior of the physical and natural world through observation and experiment."
Personally, I very much believe in the scientific method because it has helped us to understand a great deal about how our world operates.

Why Islamists Attack On Holidays
Attacking places of worship on holy days is part of a much larger strategy by Islamists.
On Palm Sunday, nearly 50 people were murdered when Islamic State terrorists bombed two Coptic churches in an Easter celebration-nightmare. The next day, on the eve of Passover, the Islamic State's Sinai affiliate launched rockets at Israel.
Just before Christmas, a terrorist claimed by the Islamic State rammed a truck into Berlin's crowded Christmas market, killing 12 people. At the same time, in Australia, a group of self-radicalized Islamists planned to attack St. Paul's Cathedral. In 2011, Nigerian Islamists murdered nearly 40 Catholic worshipers in a Christmas Day attack.
Terrorists attack where and when they can. But they seem keenly aware that turning holidays into horror can carry greater shock and terror.
In 2002, 30 Israeli civilians were massacred and 140 were injured by a Hamas suicide bomber who blew himself up during a seder at the Park Hotel in Netanya.
And it isn't just terrorists who see advantages in striking during holidays. The 1973 Yom Kippur War may be the most famous example, when the armies of two Muslim-majority states, Egypt and Syria, attacked Israel on the most sacred day of the Jewish calendar. That war produced an estimated 20,000 deaths.
What's more, Christians and Jews aren't the only religious groups that have been targeted by Islamists during non-Muslim holy days. The Hindu festival of Diwali has also been attacked.

North Korea's Surprising Christian Heritage and Destiny
Many Christians would be surprised to learn that North Korea - the world's undisputed top persecutor of its own Christian population - was once the centre of sweeping revivals.
Even more surprising to many would be the fact that the ruling Kim dynasty came from a devout Christian family.

What went wrong and how can we pray for North Korea at this time of increasing tensions? Is there hope for the long oppressed people of North Korea?

Pyongyang - the Jerusalem of the East

The city of Pyongyang is today synonymous with the tyrannical nuclear-tipped regime of Kim Jong-Un. However if we were to wind back the clock 100 years, we would see a very different city.

After the first Presbyterian mission opened in Pyongyang in 1895, revival movements rapidly brought in many converts.

These waves of revival culminated in the 'Great Pyongyang Revival' of 1907 which spread out from the city and touched the whole nation of Korea.

The fruit of the revival was that by 1910, Pyongyang was the most Christianised area of Korea - boasting over 60'000 Christians in the Presbyterian Church alone!

Christian activity was such a prominent feature that postcards from those days featured pictures of Christian street evangelists in action rather than the more traditional postcard pictures of scenic sites.

By the time of the Communist take-over in 1948, there were 2000 churches throughout Korea and they were predominantly located in the North.

Pyongyang itself was known as a bustling head-quarter of missionary activity and was affectionately called the 'Jerusalem of the East'.

The Christian Heritage of the Kim Dynasty

According to the outstanding book 'Back to the Jerusalem of the East' by Eugene Bach and Luther Martin, many of the original ruling elite of communist North Korea were in fact from Christian families or received a Christian education.

Even more startling is the fact that Kim Il-Sung - the founder and supreme leader of North Korea who ruled for 46 years - came from a devout Christian family.

According to Kim's official biography, his grandfather was a minister and his parents served as elders in a Presbyterian church. The young Kim grew up in church, and it is even reported that he was an accomplished organist!

What went wrong?

How did Kim Il-Sung turn so radically against the Christian faith of his parents?

According to Bach and Martin, the young Kim observed with resentment the high living standards of the western missionaries while the average Korean struggled to put food on the table.

The apparent apathy of western missionaries to the Japanese invasion, and their possible ties with the wealthy and oppressive landlords were also issues triggering resentment.

Another pivotal event in Kim's life was his family's forced exile in China due to his father being blacklisted by the Japanese authorities. Sadly they were not safe in China either, and one day Japanese soldiers snatched Kim's father.

Local Christians prayed fervently and passionately for his release, but he never returned. No doubt this event would have marked the young Kim and sown seeds in him leading to his complete rejection of Christianity.

Kim later became a rebel leader fighting against the Japanese, and was installed by the Russians as the leader of Korea after the defeat of the Japanese armies.

Pyongyang's status as the Jerusalem of the East came to a close with the establishment of the 'Democratic People's Republic of Korea' under Kim Il-Sung in 1948 and the subsequent rapid closure and confiscation of church properties.

Kim Il-Sung's repudiation of his Christian heritage and ruthless persecution of Christianity forms a horrific part of Korea's history.

As his son and now grandson continue in his footsteps, millions of Koreans are suffering from Kim's fateful decision to turn away from the God of his fathers.

Did Kim Il-Sung entirely forget his Christian heritage?

In Christian circles, bible study groups, worship songs and confession of sins are important in the development of strong committed disciples.

Even though Kim turned his back on Christianity, it appears that his regime chose to use surprisingly similar methods to unite the people around their 'dear leader'.

These practices include regular breaks at work to study the writings of Kim Il-Sung in small groups, the singing of songs to the 'dear leader' and even the confession of 'sins' in weekly confessionals.

Perhaps some of these corrupted practices are the secret to the enduring strength of the North Korean dictatorship?

Furthermore, Kim Il-Sung is revered as a god, and his son as 'the son of god' - obscenely mirroring Christian theology. Founding father Kim Il Sung is even believed by many to be god in the flesh and the creator of the earth!

The words of North Korean blogger 'Juche girl' give insight into a Christ-like perception of their leader. She writes 'Dear Leader can make the handicap walk and the blind to see'.

Sounds like a twisted version of a Sunday School song!

While one report suggested that Kim Il-Sung later in life once agreed to pray with a doctor before a major operation, there is sadly no evidence to suggest that he had any real change of heart or returned to the God of his fathers.

Hope for the Future of North Korea

It would seem that there has been a systematic satanic attempt to destroy the Christian heritage of North Korea. Perhaps God has a special destiny for this nation that the enemy has tried to thwart?

According to Open Doors there are today an estimated 300'000 believers in North Korea.

This is an extraordinarily high number considering the high price these believers may end up paying for their faith. The calibre of these Christians who are willing to stand in the fire of persecution is to me a great sign of hope for the future of Korea.

I believe there is great hope for a future revival in North Korea - and I base these hopes on the very similar history of the Chinese Church in the lead up to the great revivals in the late 70's and 80's.

Prior to that time Chairman Mao was practically worshipped as the great saviour of China - and Christians went through vicious persecution to the point of the church being thought to have become extinct.

However, as a result of the widespread tumult and havoc wreaked by Mao and also as a result of his death in 1976, millions of Chinese lost faith in their once great leader.

This experience and the fall of their great leader produced fertile soil in millions of Chinese hearts for what would become possibly the greatest revival of the 20th Century.

This revival was led by ordinary Chinese believers - many of whom had stood firm during the darkest night of persecution.

Could the same happen to North Korea? Could a tumultuous removal of the Kim dynasty lead millions of North Koreans to turn away from worshipping this false god?

Like in China, could this revival be headed up by North Korean believers who have been through the purifying fire of persecution?

Can Pyongyang once again be the epicentre of a tremendous revival to have an impact even the borders of North Korea?

Perhaps this is the reason why the enemy has tried to hold North Korea in the iron-grip of the Kim dynasty for so long.

A Call to Prayer

In these days of escalating tensions on the Korean peninsula, let us remember to pray for the North Korean people.

Let us pray for a change in the North Korean leadership and an opening of the borders to the Gospel.

May the Christian heritage of the nation be restored and may Pyongyang once again be known as the 'Jerusalem of the East'!

Where Is The UK Outrage? - Terrorist Rewarded For British Student Murder
The Palestinian Authority continues to reward "pay to slay" with your tax dollars.
The Palestinian terrorist who murdered a British student in Jerusalem earlier this month will receive a stipend of approximately $1,000 per month from the Palestinian Authority (PA).
"According to PA law, everyone who is imprisoned for 'resisting the occupation' receives a PA salary," explained Itamar Marcus, founder and director of Palestinian Media Watch, the Daily Mail reported, about the reward 57-year-old Jamil Tamimi will receive for murdering 21-year-old Hannah Bladon while she was riding the light rail on the Christian holiday of Good Friday.
"In PA practice, 100 percent of the suicide bombers, stabbers, shooters and car-rammers have been included in this category and do receive PA salaries," Marcus said.
Israeli authorities said Tamimi, who allegedly has a history of mental health issues, initiated the terror attack in the hope that he would be killed by security forces.
