Justice Minister Says ‘Never Again’ to Exchanging Israelis for Terrorists
By JNI Media October 24, 2017 , 5:20 pm
“Assuredly, the evil man will not escape, But the offspring of the righteous will be safe.” Psalms 11:21 (The Israel Bible™️)

Three days after the appointment of a new Coordinator of POWs and MIAs, Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked addressed the issue of the return of the bodies of two fallen IDF soldiers and two living Israeli civilians held captive by Hamas, vowing that as long as Habayit Hayehudi is in the government, no terrorists will be released as part of a prisoner exchange deal with Hamas, Channel 2 News reported Tuesday. “Everything that happened in the Gilad Shalit deal will not be repeated, I think everyone knows that today,” she said.
Shaked spoke at the Kohelet Policy Forum think tank, and referred to the yet to be published Shamgar Commission recommendations, issued in 2012, following the much-criticized Netanyahu government’s 2011 prisoner exchange that released some 1,000 terrorists with Jewish blood on their hands in return for a single Israeli corporal named Gilad Shalit. The commission’s report has been kept secret since it was issued in 2012, but cabinet ministers have seen it, and Shaked made clear she had read it.
According to leaked information about the report, it recommended supreme secrecy regarding POW and MIA negotiations, and strict limits on the ability of the families of the missing to influence the outcome of those negotiations. Gilad Shalit’s family was able to run a well-organized, effective propaganda campaign from 2006, when their boy was captured by Hamas, to 2011, when Netanyahu capitulated to the enormous public pressure they were able to drum up.

Yehudah Glick: Fighting For Peace and Reason in Turbulent Knesset

Knesset member Yehudah Glick (Likud), September 27, 2016. (Yonatan Sindel/Flash90)
Culture Minister Miri Regev leveled a withering attack on President Reuven (Ruby) Rivlin Tuesday, saying Rivlin’s speech during the opening of the Knesset’s winter session Monday was the “most un-statesmanlike” address by a president in Israeli history.
“Rivlin spat in the face of the will of the people, he spat in the face of democracy and of the politicians who elected him president. He was the the most un-statesmanlike president that Israel has ever had,” Regev steamed in a Facebook video.
Other Likud MKs, however, defended the president, implicitly criticizing Regev and repeating the president’s warning that illiberal trends and legislation emanating from the government are having a damaging affect on Israeli democracy and civil discourse.
“I certainly feel that the president put his finger on several social trends that are very worrying,” MK Yehuda Glick (Likud) told Tazpit Press Service (TPS). “He spoke about the need to conduct our public discourse in an atmosphere of balance and limits between the three branches of government: the legislature, the executive and judiciary, and that none of the three should try to trample another one.”
Glick said he “strongly disagreed” with Regev’s missive against the president and said that Rivlin’s speech stood in sharp contrast to the “debased” level of dialogue in the Knesset, exemplified by the near free-for-all that broke out during the ceremonial opening of parliament. The spectacle moved Glick to leave the plenum, but not before Knesset Speaker Yuli Edelstein had to remove two Zionist Camp MKs who had repeatedly shouted down Netanyahu’s speech.

Justice Needed For American Victims of Palestinian Terrorism
By Michael Freund October 24, 2017 , 8:00 am
For over two decades, Palestinian terrorists have literally and figuratively gotten away with the murder of dozens of Americans, slaying at least 64 US citizens in a chilling variety of stabbing, shooting and bombing attacks.
And yet, despite Washington’s undisputed commitment to fighting terrorism, not a single Palestinian perpetrator has been brought to justice for spilling American blood, nor has the Palestinian Authority been held to account.
After eight years in which the Obama administration did virtually nothing to pursue Palestinians wanted in connection with the murder of American citizens, essentially giving the terrorists a free pass, now is the time for the Trump administration to take a much tougher line on this critical issue.
Indeed, this week marks the 14th anniversary of one of the more brazen examples of anti-American Palestinian terrorism. It was on October 15, 2003, that Palestinian terrorists set off a remotely controlled explosive device on a Gaza road as a US diplomatic convoy passed by. The bomb killed three Americans: John Branchizio, 37, of Texas, John Linde Jr., 30, of Missouri, and Mark Parsons, 31, of New Jersey. One other American was wounded in the blast.
Despite the fact that the attack took place in broad daylight and the American vehicles all bore diplomatic license plates, the Palestinian Authority, first under Yasser Arafat and then with Mahmoud Abbas at the helm, refused to take action, preferring instead to allow the murderers to roam free.
Not surprisingly, the incident came in the wake of weeks of ongoing anti-American incitement in the official Palestinian media.

Trump Did the Right Thing By Walking Away From UNESCO – For Now
By Alan Dershowitz October 24, 2017 , 7:00 am
The State Department announced on Thursday that the United States would be withdrawing from UNESCO, citing financial reasons, the need for reform and the body’s “continuing anti-Israel bias.”
President Donald Trump’s decision to leave UNESCO – the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization – as of December 31, 2018, was an appropriate foreign policy decision that one hopes will prompt a much-needed rethink of the United Nations, its purpose, and practices.
It will also send a strong message to the Palestinians that statehood cannot be achieved on the basis of UN resolutions alone, and that the only way forward is to engage in direct negotiations with Israel where mutual sacrifices will be required.
In the aftermath of WWII, the intended goal of the Paris-based UN body was a noble one: to promote basic freedoms and security through international collaboration on education, science, and cultural projects. UNESCO- sponsored projects focused on literacy, vocational training, equal access to basic education and preservation of human rights and historical sites are indeed praiseworthy.
However, in practice, the 195-member body – with its automatic anti-Israel majority that exists in every institution of the UN – has become a springboard for Jew-hatred and the rewriting of history.
To be sure, UNESCO is far from the only UN agency to regularly single out Israel for reproach. Yet, its anti-Israel adoptions have been abhorrent even by the low standards established by the broader multilateral institution.
Consider a resolution introduced in May, which denied Israel – and the Jewish people’s – legal and historic ties to the city of Jerusalem, including its holiest sites.
It called the Tomb of the Patriarchs in Hebron – considered the resting place of the Jewish Patriarchs and Matriarchs – and Rachel’s Tomb near Bethlehem, “Palestinian sites.” Shamefully, this vote was deliberately held on Israel’s Independence Day.
Only two months later, the cultural body convened in Krakow, Poland – a city soaked in Jewish blood – and declared the city of Hebron, holy to Jews for millennia, an endangered Palestinian heritage site.

Hundreds of Thousands of Jews May Be Recognized in Groundbreaking Authorization of Genetic Determination of Halachic Jewish Status
By Eliana Rudee October 23, 2017 , 8:58 am
“They shall know that I Hashem am their God when, having exiled them among the nations, I gather them back into their land and leave none of them behind.” Ezekiel 39:28 (The Israel Bible™️)
A groundbreaking ruling by Eretz Hemdah, a respected Torah law institute, has paved the way to using genetic testing to establish Jewish identity. Though this is just the first step in a long process, it already affects tens of millions of people around the world who are discovering their ancestral roots in the Jewish people, while helping many others in their journey towards conversion.
In a groundbreaking Responsa B’mareh Habazak Volume 9 ruling by the Eretz Hemdah Institute for Advanced Jewish Studies in Jerusalem, a collection of dayanim (Rabbinic judges) ruled that it is possible to determine one’s Jewish status based on genetic testing of the mitochondrial genome. If the Chief Rabbinate of Israel embraces the ruling, some 40% of olim (immigrants to Israel) from the former Soviet Union may be absolved of the need to convert in order to receive state recognition as Jews.
According to Eretz Hemdah, the ruling is intended to “give expression to the unique situation that Jewish communities around the world are presently undergoing.” The ruling could consequently provide Jewish recognition for hundreds of thousands of olim from the USSR who are unable to prove their Jewish ancestry and are therefore barred from Israeli recognition in issues of marriage, burial, and other undertakings that require one to be Jewish.

For the first time in decades, the old-but-still formidable U.S. fleet of B-52 high-altitude long-range strategic bombers have reportedly been ordered prepared to return to their Cold War mission of carrying nuclear weapons in preparation for a conflict with North Korea.
Defense One, a national security website, published an exclusive story on Sunday saying that Barksdale Airforce Base in Louisianna has been ordered to prepare the enormous planes to return to 24-hour ready alert status. The bombers flew such missions until 1991 when the Soviet Union fell and the Cold War ended.

“This is yet one more step in ensuring that we’re prepared,” Gen. David Goldfein, Air Force chief of staff, said in an interview with Defense One. “I look at it more as not planning for any specific event, but more for the reality of the global situation we find ourselves in and how we ensure we’re prepared going forward.”

Mladenov was reacting to senior Hamas officials who made statements that the recent reconciliation with the Palestinian Authority (PA) does not affect Hamas’ intention to entirely destroy the State of Israel. Mladenov noted that the destruction of Israel would interfere with the two-state solution.
“I condemn the latest statements made by some Hamas leaders, reportedly calling for the destruction of the State of Israel,” Mladenov said. “They do not serve the interest of peace and the goal of achieving a negotiated two-state solution.”
Mladenov stated that working towards the destruction of Israel would also not help the humanitarian crisis in Gaza.

Residents Fume as Palestinians Stage Unprecedented Agriculture Heist
By Tazpit Press Service October 23, 2017 , 9:36 am
“Do you consider this House, which bears My name, to be a den of thieves? As for Me, I have been watching—declares Hashem.” Jeremiah 7:11 (The Israel Bible™️)

IDF and Border Police units arrested 67 Palestinians from the village of Beit Awwa over Shabbat for allegedly stealing tons of agricultural produce from the greenhouses of Moshav Shekef, in the Lachish region, near the West Bank security barrier.
During a routine tour, the IDF noticed something suspicious in the greenhouses but decided not to investigate the incident before involving Border Police. That took until 4:30 pm, when the joint operation caught nearly 70 people, including 27 adults and 40 children and teenagers, stealing produce, mostly grapes, tomatoes, and peppers.
Border Police investigators believe the suspects picked between 20 and 24 tons of grapes and another 5 to 7 tons of tomatoes, while also damaging greenhouses and agricultural property.
“They passed through the fence, entered the greenhouses and vineyards and begin to pick just everything, they took all the produce that was ready to be sold in the Israeli market,” said Giora Dan, 59, one of the three farmers who was robbed. Speaking to Tazpit Press Service (TPS) the morning after the incident, Dan estimated the damage in the tens of thousands of Shekels.

Jews Evicted From Hebron House Despite PA Attesting to Validity of Sale
By Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz October 23, 2017 , 4:35 pm
“So Ephron’s land in Machpelah, near Mamre—the field with its cave and all the trees anywhere within the confines of that field—passed to Avraham as his possession, in the presence of the Hittites, of all who entered the gate of his town.” Genesis 23:17-18)

In a strange twist, the Israeli Supreme Court kicked Jews out of a house they claim they purchased in Hebron, while the Palestinian Authority (PA) has no doubts: the Arab who sold the house to the Jews is being charged with selling the house to Jews, a crime punishable by death.
The State Attorney’s Office decided on Wednesday night to order the eviction of 15 families, comprising over 100 people, who moved into a building in Hebron last July. The families claim that they are the legal owners of Machpela House, so named because it is in close proximity to the Cave of the Patriarchs. But the Israeli High Court has rejected their claim and told them to vacate the property.
Yishai Fleisher, the international spokesman for the Jewish Community of Hebron, pointed out the glaring proof the purchase was legitimate.
“The previous owner, an officer in the Palestinian security forces, sold the house to the Jews at an exorbitant price,” Fleisher told Breaking Israel News. “He took the money and bought a palace in Ramallah thinking his protexia (influence) would protect him. He was arrested and charged with the crime of selling the property to the Jews.”
The former security officer has been charged and is awaiting sentencing, with the official penalty being the death penalty.
“According to the Palestinian Authority, the sale was a good sale,” Fleisher posits.
“The house is in an area that is legal for Jews to live in,” Fleisher noted. “Because it is across the street from the parking lot for the Machpelah (Cave of the Patriarchs), there are no extra or even extraordinary security requirements.
Shlomo Levinger, one of the owners of the house, agreed with Fleisher, noting that the PA’s testimony was more than implicit.
“When we bought the house, we knew from experience that this kind of thing might happen, so, through proxies, we got the PA’s official stamp on the sale,” Levinger told Breaking Israel News. Levinger was clear on the motivations behind the baseless legal hassle.

Genesis, Gematria Reveal Deep Hebrew Significance of Man
By Tsivya Fox October 23, 2016 , 7:30 am
“Happy is the man that hath not walked in the counsel of the wicked, nor stood in the way of sinners, nor sat in the seat of the scornful. But his delight is in the law of Hashem; and in His law doth he meditate day and night.” Psalms 1:1-2 (The Israel Bible™️)
image: https://www.breakingisraelnews.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/10/creation.jpg
What does the Hebrew alphabet have to do with the creation of Man? If one considers the words of the Torah, it becomes amazingly clear that the two are deeply entwined and, indeed, inseparable.

On the sixth day of creation, God made man.

And God created man in His own image, in the image of God created He him; male and female created He them. (Genesis 1:27)

The first man is called Adom (אָדָם). Why did God choose to call man this?

“In Judaism, the sages teach that God first created the Hebrew alphabet and then used those letters to create the world,” explained Roni Segal, the academic adviser for eTeacher, an online language academy specializing in the Hebrew language, to Breaking Israel News. “Knowing the depths of each Hebrew letter gives insights into understanding a bit of God’s plan for the world as well as the purpose of man’s existence.”

For example, Adom is made up of the Hebrew letter aleph, which always represents God, and then “dom”. “Dom” דם in Hebrew means blood. The Bible states:

Then Hashem God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul. (Genesis 2:7)

When God breathed life into man, He placed a bit of Himself, so to speak, into the blood of every human being to teach that man is meant to be God-like, sages teach.

“Hebrew numerology, called gematria, brings even deeper understanding to the purpose of man,” continued Segal. “The value of dom, blood, is 44. A person’s blood is formed through the blending of his mother and father. In Hebrew, mother is eem, which equals 41 in gematria and father is av, which equals 3 in gematria.

“The total value of mother and father is 44, the same as the value of the blood they create together.”

image: https://www.breakingisraelnews.com/wp-content/uploads/useful_banner_manager_banners/446-EN_BIB_Journey_600X150.jpg

Segal went on to explain that human beings are meant to be both spiritual and physical as they live out their lives in this world. Should a person only want to connect to their spirituality through their aleph Godliness or only want to connect to their blood physicality, they are not fulfilling God’s desire for man. A person must live fully in the physical world while bringing spirituality into their lives through Godly acts in their day to day lives.

Segal then showed that through understanding Hebrew, it becomes even clearer that man was not created to live life like an animal. “The Hebrew word for animal is beh-hay-mah, בְּהֵמָה. Beh means ‘in it is’ and mah means ‘what it is’. We understand from this that an animal is just an animal. It is what it is.

“This is totally different than man who has a Godly soul and therefore infinite potential. Man is meant to take what ever gifts God granted him and become greater each day. That is certainly not the expectation for an animal.”

Another way to achieve deeper understanding of a Hebrew word is through rearranging the letters of the word. When the Hebrew letters for Adom אָדָם are rearranged, they spell mah-ohd מְאֹד, which means “more”. Man is meant to become more each day through refining his character and actions.

Returning to Genesis 2:7, God created man from the ground, which, in Hebrew, is ah-dah-mah, אֲדָמָה. Aleph represents God. The next three letters, דמה, makes up the word doh-may and means “resemble” or “similar”. By creating man from earth, with these Hebrew letters, God is teaching us that we can choose how we will live our lives. Human beings can resemble God through performing good deeds or be like the lowliest dirt that has no intrinsic value except for what people create out of it.

“Hebrew is a fascinating and fun language to study,” expressed Segal to Breaking Israel News. “If someone ever questioned what they were created for, the answer is revealed through Hebrew. Studying the Bible in the Holy language brings a depth of understanding which cannot be reached in any other language.”

Bibi & the Bible
Prime Minister Netanyahu’s speeches reveal the meaning and mission of Israel and Jewish destiny.
by Chief Rabbi Warren Goldstein
When leaders make speeches, people listen not only to the specific policies and positions but also to the vocabulary of ideas, which impacts public discourse and has the power to create a new way of thinking. An analysis of Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu’s speeches reveals an important philosophy of the meaning and mission of Israel and of Jewish destiny.
The prime minister often invokes Judaism and the millennia sweep of Jewish history rooted in the Bible as the context for the ideas and policies he presents to the world.
His most recent speech to the United Nations General Assembly on September 27 is a classic example of this:
“Three thousand years ago, King David reigned over the Jewish state in our eternal capital, Jerusalem. I say that to all those that proclaim that the Jewish state has no roots in our region and it will soon disappear – We say in Hebrew, ‘Am Yisrael Chai,’ and the Jewish state will live forever.”
In his speeches, Netanyahu integrates Jewish history and destiny with Torah values, as he did on that occasion before the nations of the world: “Yesterday was Yom Kippur, the holiest day of the Jewish year. Every year for over three millennia we have come together on this day of reflection and atonement. We take stock of our past. We pray for our future.
“But at the end of Yom Kippur, we celebrate. We celebrate the rebirth of Israel. We celebrate the heroism of our young men and women who have defended our people with the indomitable courage of Joshua, David and the Maccabees of old. We celebrate the marvel of the flourishing modern Jewish state.”
Modern Israel, as the third great Jewish commonwealth in 3,300, is presented here as the spiritual heir of its illustrious predecessors, sharing the values and moral vision of generations of Jews throughout the ages.
Providing a full historic context is crucial to understanding Israel today.
This speech is an example of others that the prime minister has given in recent years, framing the context of Israel as a Jewish state within the values of Judaism and Jewish history. In his 2011 speech to the UN General Assembly, the prime minister referred specifically to Jewish history as rooted in the Bible:
“In my office in Jerusalem there’s an ancient seal. It’s a signet ring of a Jewish official from the time of the Bible. This seal was found right next to the Western Wall, and it dates back 2,700, to the time of King Hezekiah. Now, there’s a name of the Jewish official inscribed on the ring in Hebrew. His name was Netanyahu.
“That’s my last name. My first name, Benjamin, dates back a thousand years earlier to Benjamin – Benyamin, the son of Jacob, who was also known as Israel. Jacob and his 12 sons roamed these same hills of Judea and Samaria 4,000 years ago, and there’s been a continuous Jewish presence in the land ever since.”
These biblical references made by the prime minister are very significant. Providing the full historic and value-based context is crucial to understanding Israel and the Jewish people today. It is of vital moral and strategic importance that Zionism and the modern State of Israel be recognized not to have originated just over 100 years ago in Basel, Switzerland, but, in fact, as being rooted in almost 4,000 years of Jewish history, beginning with G-d’s promise to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.
This is important from a moral point of view because it establishes our right and connection to the Land of Israel.
If Zionism is perceived to be a modern phenomenon, then the accusation that Israel is a colonialist power is indeed tenable. On the other hand, if it is understood that the Land of Israel has been the Jewish people’s biblical and historic homeland of thousands of years, then the dialogue in the global arena is dramatically transformed; as the prime minister said in his 2011 speech to the United States Congress:
“We’re not the British in India. We’re not the Belgians in Congo. This is the land of our forefathers, the Land of Israel, to which Abraham brought the idea of one God, where David set out to confront Goliath, and where Isaiah saw his vision of eternal peace. No distortion of history could deny the 4,000-year-old bond between the Jewish people and the Jewish land.”
Such assertions do not preclude the possibility of territorial compromises to establish a Palestinian state on the biblical land of Judea and Samaria, also known as the West Bank, as the prime minister said in the very next paragraph of the same speech:
“But there is another truth. The Palestinians share this small land with us. We seek a peace in which they’ll be neither Israel’s subjects nor its citizens. They should enjoy a national life of dignity as a free, viable and independent people living in their own state – They should enjoy a prosperous economy, where their creativity and initiative can flourish.”
But even with territorial compromise, the historical context is crucial. If Israel concedes that the land of the West Bank – Judea and Samaria – is not Jewish land but illegally occupied Palestinian land, the framework of the international debate shifts. Israel can demand that its security needs be taken into account, but the world will counter that ending the illegal occupation is the overriding priority.
These roots give Israel the sense of pride, destiny and divine mission to go forward with confidence.
On the other hand, by asserting that all of Israel, including the West Bank, has for thousands of years been Jewish land, the State of Israel stands before the world with moral authority and from a position of strength, ready to negotiate and even give away land for the establishment of a Palestinian state, but doing so with the integrity of being the rightful owners of the land and not colonial robbers.
In his concluding words at the UN this year Prime Minister Netanyahu said:
“The traditions of the Jewish people go back thousands of years. They are the source of our collective values and the foundation of our national strength. Throughout history, we have been at the forefront of efforts to expand liberty, promote equality and advance human rights. We champion these principles not despite of our traditions but because of them. We heed the words of the Jewish prophets Isaiah, Amos and Jeremiah to treat all with dignity and compassion, to pursue justice and cherish life and to pray and strive for peace. These are the timeless values of my people and these are the Jewish peoples’ greatest gift to mankind. Let us commit ourselves today to defend these values so that we can defend our freedom and protect our common civilization.”
By framing Israel’s vision from a moral perspective the prime minister creates the opportunity of establishing an alliance of values bringing together most nations of the world. The struggle that is taking place between radical Islam on the one hand, and Israel on the other, is a struggle of values, and a powerful international alliance that can be galvanized around the values of human dignity, freedom and the sanctity of human life.
Furthermore, this approach of a broad moral vision is not only about convincing the outside world – it is also about creating an inspiring calling for Jews, in terms of which Israel is a meaningful and sacred part of almost 4,000 years of Jewish history and destiny, and a crucial part of the fulfillment of our divine and eternal values. If the modern State of Israel is cut off from its roots in Jewish history, Torah values and divine destiny, it cannot, in the long-term, survive the military and political forces which seek its destruction.
It is these deep roots that give Israel its moral justification and determined motivation to withstand the passing storms of the day, as the Jewish people have done for millennia. It is these roots that give Israel the sense of pride, historic destiny and divine mission to go forward into the future with confidence and faith.

Aleksandra Cybulska, a Polish woman who will turn 100 0n November 11, and her husband Kazimierz, who died in 2002 at the age of 94, were presented on Thursday with the Righteous Among the Nations award for risking their lives to save Jews during World War II.
Due to Cybulska age and health, the award was presented at a ceremony in Gdynia, northern Poland, by the deputy Israeli ambassador to Poland, Ruth Cohen-Dar.
The couple was recognized for rescuing Sonia Berkowicz who was born on 15 September 1933 in Orbis, Poland. The Catholic couple was friends of Sonia’s parents before the war broke out. The entire family of the girl was deported by the Nazi Germans to the ghetto in Klecko, Belarus, but in the spring of 1942, Sonia and her brothers knocked on the Cybulskas’ door in the village of Jakszyce and asked for food. The couple housed and fed the children for several days but the boys returned to the ghetto and were taken to the death camps.

After U.S. led coalition forces finally raised victory flags over the devastated city of Raqqa last week, liberating it from jihadist and Islamic State (ISIS) forces, Russia responded by condemning the U.S.
Major-General Igor Konashenkov, a spokesman for the Russian Defense Ministry, condemned the U.S. in the harshest possible terms for their involvement in the Syrian conflict. Konashenkov said in a statement on Sunday to the Russian News Agency TASS that around 200,000 people had lived in Raqqa before the conflict in Syria, but that not more than 45,000 people remained.
“Raqqa has inherited the fate of Dresden in 1945, wiped off the face of the earth by Anglo-American bombardments,” said Konashenkov.
Near the end of World War II, British and American warplanes bombed the city of Dresden, Germany so intensely that it generated a firestorm. An estimated 22,700 to 25,000 people were killed.

Freud’s Subconscious Discovery of God
By Rabbi Dr. Nathan Lopes Cardozo October 22, 2017 , 9:00 am
Sigmund Freud (1856-1939), the father of psychoanalysis and a figure as eminent as Galileo or Einstein, devoted a great deal of attention to religion. Some of his works, such as Totem and Taboo (1913), The Future of an Illusion (1927) and Moses and Monotheism (1939), reveal his unusual interest in religion, specifically in the psychology behind religious belief.
Freud had nothing good to say about religion. He regarded religious beliefs as “…illusions, fulfillment of the oldest, strongest and most insistent wishes of mankind.” (Sigmund Freud, The Future of an Illusion, trans. and ed. by James Strachey, (New York: Liveright Publishing Corp., and London: The Hogarth Press Ltd., 1961) p. 30.) Religion, he believed, was a mental defense against life’s hardships, against its threatening aspects, such as earthquakes, floods, storms, diseases and inevitable death, which “rise up against us, majestic, cruel and inexorable.” (Ibid., p.16) Man looks for some kind of security into which he can escape from many of these threatening misfortunes. And if he cannot avoid them, he needs to at least feel that these disasters have an exalted purpose. This requires the existence of an ultimate father figure, an infinite being who can stop any disease or natural disaster, or has good reason for causing these calamities to take place.
This, claims Freud, is the reason why millions of people, including highly intelligent ones, believe in God. It is not because they have a high mental capacity to understand this world, but rather because of “the universal, obsessive neurosis of humanity,” (Ibid., p. 44.) which would be left behind if people would finally learn to face the world, relying no longer on illusions but upon scientifically authenticated knowledge.
In Totem and Taboo, Freud introduced his famous Oedipus complex. (Oedipus is a prominent figure in Greek mythology that unknowingly killed his father and married his mother; the Oedipus complex of Freudian theory is the child’s unconscious jealousy of his father and longing for his mother.) Strangely enough, Freud uses this complex to explain the tremendous emotional intensity of religious life and the associated feelings of guilt and obligation to obey the dictates of the deity. He postulates a stage of human pre-history in which the family or tribe unit was the “primal horde,” consisting of father, mother, and offspring. The father, as head of the family or tribe, retained exclusive rights over all the females and drove away or even killed his sons who challenged his authority. The sons, seeing that they could never challenge their father’s authority, decided to kill him and (being cannibals) eat him! This, states Freud, who saw the Oedipus complex as universal, is the primal crime of which guilt is born and which is responsible for so much tension within the human psyche

WATCH: Israel prepares for Hezbollah chemical attack
October 22, 2017
The largest hospital in northern Israel, Rambam Medical Center, conducted a drill simulating the arrival of hundreds of citizens wounded by rocket and missile attacks, including those injured by chemical weapons, as Iran’s proxy terror army, Hezbollah, is increasing its stockpile of over 150,000 rockets and missiles on Israel’s northern border.

The Golan Heating Up, Five Rockets From Syria, Iran Steps In
By Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz October 22, 2017 , 1:01 am

“Blessed is Hashem, my rock, who trains my hands for battle, my fingers for warfare;” Psalms 144:1 (The Israel Bible™️)
Illustrative: Israeli artillery on high alert after they responded to several rockets hitting the Mount Hermon Resort, in the Golan Heights, northern Israel, January 27, 2015. (Photo: Basal Awidat/Flash90)
At around 5:00 A.M. on Saturday morning, five rockets from Syria landed in the Golan. IDF artillery fired back, destroying three rocket launchers. There were no injuries or damage in Israel.
Channel 2 News reported that the IDF stated this recent incident was spillover fire from hostilities between the Syrian army and rebels. The new report also said there was “a growing sense” in the IDF that the Syrian fire was intentionally aimed at Israel.
This recent incident was exceptional in that at the time the rockets were fired, there were no hostilities between the Syrian army and rebel troops. The rockets were fired in quick succession and landed deep in Israel than usual.
The Syrian army issued a statement to the Syrian press regarding the IDF shelling, saying it came after “Syrian opposition fighters fired mortar rounds that hit an open area in the Israeli-occupied Golan giving the Jewish state a pretext to bomb the army.”
The Syrian Foreign Ministry sent messages sent to the UN secretary-general and the UN Security Council, accusing Israel of aiding the rebel groups in order to instigate spillover fire, thereby giving Israel an excuse to attack Syria.
“The recent Israeli attack on the outskirts of Quneitra is a new chapter in the conspiracy between the Israeli occupation and armed terror groups, and another attempt to support these organizations,” warning that the “dire consequences of these repeated aggressive actions, which cannot be seen as anything but support for terrorism and the criminal terror groups.”
Tensions between Israel and Syria are growing on the northern border. On Monday, a Syrian surface-to-air missile (SAM) SA-5 battery fired a missile at Israeli Air Force planes on a routine reconnaissance flight over Southern Lebanon on Monday.

Netanyahu Rejects IDF Choices for Military Secretary, Wants Commander Who Told Troops to Fight in God’s Name
By JNI Media October 22, 2017 , 11:42 am
When you take the field against your enemies, and see horses and chariots—forces larger than yours—have no fear of them, for Hashem your God, who brought you from the land of Egypt, is with you.” Deuteronomy 20:1 (The Israel Bible™️)

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will soon announce his choice for his next military secretary, but according to Ha’aretz pundit Yossi Verter, so far the PM has rejected three brigadier generals suggested by IDF Chief of Staff Gadi Eizenkot: Yehuda Fuchs (Gaza Division), Yaniv Asor (Golan Division) and Uri Gordin (Reserve Paratroopers Brigade). Netanyahu cannot directly pick his choice for military secretary since the position is under the control of the Chief of Staff. So, until Eizenkot comes up with the man Netanyahu wants, things will remain at a standstill.
According to Verter, the nomination the PM wants and the Chief of Staff does not is Brigadier General Ofer Vinter, chief of the Central Command staff. Vinter wears a knitted yarmulke and represents the cadre of quality career officers produced by the National Religious education system. He lives in a religious communal village in lower Galilee, married, father of eight who was the youngest division commander ever to become a grandfather. He is admired in the religious sector for all of the above, but mostly for his famous (or infamous, depending on your political inclination) daily order of July 9, 2014, just as Operation Protective Edge was starting in Gaza.
“History has chosen us to be at the forefront of fighting the Gazan terrorist enemy, who is vilifying the God of Israel,” then Colonel Ofer Vinter wrote his soldiers of the Givati Brigade. The reference to I Samuel 17:26 was not lost on his secular and religious public school graduates: David said to the men standing with him, “What reward will be given to the man who kills this Philistine and removes this disgrace from Israel? Who is this uncircumcised Philistine anyway, that he vilifies the armies of the living God?”

Hamas Officials Meet With Tehran to Discuss “Wiping Israel Out”

A delegation of senior Hamas officials arrived in Iran Friday to improve ties between the Palestinian terror group and the Islamic Republic.
According to Iran’s Tasnim News Agency, the Hamas officials “will discuss the latest developments on the Palestinian arena, especially the reconciliation file and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, as well as bilateral relations.”
The delegation is headed by Saleh al-Arouri, who heads Hamas’s terror activity in the disputed territories.
The visit comes amid the terror group’s reconciliation agreement with its Palestinian rival, Fatah. As a result of the deal, the Palestinians are set to form a unity government by Dec. 1. Both the U.S. and Israel have called on Hamas to disarm, recognize Israel and cut off ties with Iran as prerequisites for future negotiations with the Palestinian unity government.
But Hamas’s Gaza leader, Yahya Sinwar, said Thursday, “The discussion is no longer about recognizing Israel but about wiping Israel out.”
Sinwar also said anyone who thinks Hamas would sever ties with Iran is “delusional.”
“Our relationship with Iran or Egypt or any Arab or Muslim state provides us with strategic depth,” the terror chief said.

NASA Insists Newly-Discovered 9th Planet Isn't Nibiru; Skeptics Disagree
By Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz October 18, 2017 , 12:30 pm
“What I see for them is not yet, What I behold will not be soon: A star rises from Yaakov, A scepter comes forth from Yisrael; It smashes the brow of Moab, The foundation of all children of Shet.” Numbers 24:17 (The Israel Bible™️)

After years of denying and debunking, NASA scientists confirmed the existence of a ninth planet in a discovery that seems to conform to popular theories of an apocalyptic collision with a planet called Nibiru. Skeptics on both sides bring their arguments, while researchers continue to present more amazing discoveries of this yet-to be-seen addition to the solar system.
On October 4th, NASA published a press release stating that it had discovered unmistakable evidence of a ninth planet in the far extremes of space, orbiting the solar system. The planet is surmised to be ten times the mass of Earth, but it has yet to be seen since its elliptical orbit is estimated to be about 60 billion miles away from the sun.
The description of the new planet conformed so closely to the predictions of Nibiru, a large planetary object that many believe will collide with the earth, that the NASA press release contained a cosmic disclaimer.
“If a planet is there, it’s extremely distant and will stay that way (with no chance — in case you’re wondering – of ever colliding with Earth, or bringing ‘days of darkness’).”

Mass Arab Emigration to Jordan Would Solve Israel’s Palestinian Problem, Suggests Conference
By Eliana Rudee October 18, 2017 , 9:30 am
“On that day Hashem made a covenant with Avram, saying, ‘To your offspring I assign this land, from the river of Egypt to the great river, the river Euphrates.’” Genesis 15:18 (The Israel Bible™️)
MK Yehudah Glick speaks at the Jordanian Option Conference in Jerusalem, October 17, 2017. (Eliana Rudee/Breaking Israel News)
“Everybody knows that Jordan is a Palestinian State,” said MK Yehudah Glick at the Jordanian Option Conference in Jerusalem on Tuesday. Nearly every other speaker at the conference agreed that the Jordan ‘option’ is a satisfactory solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
According to conference organizers, the ‘Jordan is Palestine’ solution “calls for Jordan to be the Arab state and Israel to the Jordan River, to be the state of the Jews.” To these ends, Israel would incentivize and encourage local Arabs to emigrate to Jordan.
Israel would support the development of a new Jordanian city to accommodate a million new residents, stimulating the Jordanian economy and creating jobs. An interim Jordanian government would offer citizenship and “right of return” to all Palestinians, putting an end to the Palestinian Authority (PA) and the Palestinian refugee problem.
“The concept of a Palestinian state in Judea and Samaria doesn’t exist anymore, and anyone who is genuine knows that. It is wrong, dangerous, and not possible,” said MK Glick, speaking at the conference hosted at the Menachem Begin Center. “Jordan as a Palestinian state is a serious potential because the majority of Jordanians are Palestinian,” he explained. “Before 1967, the Palestinians were Jordanian.”

“You Cannot Understand the Mid-East Conflict Without the Bible”
By Maayan Jaffe-Hoffman October 18, 2017 , 1:30 pm
“Do what is right and good in the sight of Hashem, that it may go well with you and that you may be able to possess the good land that Hashem your God promised on oath to your fathers.” Deuteronomy 6:18 (The Israel Bible™️)
The Palestinian-Israeli conflict is a “religious, spiritual and moral conflict,” said David Parsons, vice president and senior international spokesman for the International Christian Embassy in Jerusalem (ICEJ), on Tuesday. “If you ignore that, then you ignore the heart of the problem.”
Parsons, who was addressing a group of Christian journalists during a panel discussion about media bias on Tuesday as part of the government’s Christian Media Summit in Jerusalem, said he believes faith still motivates and drives people in the region far more than the mainstream media understands.
“Most reporters completely ignore it,” Parsons said.
In the last decade, several media outlets have come under fire for their anti-religious attitudes and for hiring correspondents with little understanding of religious issues. Brexit and the victory of President Donald Trump highlighted the liberal, elite media’s struggle to understand “ordinary people.”

3,200-Year-Old Hieroglyphics Reveal Secrets of Fabled ‘Sea People’
By Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz October 17, 2017 , 12:30 pm
“No smith was to be found in all the land of Yisrael, for the Philistines were afraid that the Hebrews would make swords or spears.” I Samuel 13:19 (The Israel Bible™️)
image: https://www.breakingisraelnews.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/Beyk%C3%B6y-Inscription-Luwian-Studies-640x400.jpg

A 3,200-year-old text that lay undeciphered for 140 years has finally been translated, revealing details of the military campaign of the fabled Sea People and the downfall of the Hittites. Most importantly, it gives definitive clues about the true identity of Israel’s archnemesis, the Philistines.
The remarkable story behind the story began in 1978 when villagers in the village of Beyköy discovered scattered pieces of a hieroglyphic inscription that, when assembled, was over 95 feet long. At the time, the inscriptions, Luwian hieroglyphics, were indecipherable, but French archaeologist Georges Perrot made detailed copies. But after local residents used the stones to build a mosque and Perrot’s copies disappeared, it seemed that the fabled inscription was gone forever.
Then in 2012, a six-inch-thick manuscript of Perrot’s work was discovered. Dr. Eberhard Zangger, the president of the Luwian Studies Foundation, teamed with Dr. Fred Woudhuizen, a scholar near Amsterdam, who is one of only two dozen people in the world able to decipher Luwian script.
“We believe the frieze to be the only contemporary account describing the fall of the Hittite Empire,” Dr. Zangger told Breaking Israel News. In the Bible, the Hittites are descended from Het, Noah’s grandson, who settled in the land of Canaan, named for Het’s father.
Canaan begot Tzidon, his first-born, and Heth. Genesis 10:15
More important to Bible scholars is what the new findings reveal about Israel’s Biblical arch-nemesis: the Philistines. Throughout the Bible, the Philistines controlled the coastal region down to Gaza. This is confirmed by Dr. Zangger’s finding, but with significant additional details.
Some historians theorized that the Philistines were not a specific nation but a conglomeration of marauding states, but the frieze’s description contradicts this theory. The inscription describes in detail the rise of a powerful kingdom called Mira, which launched a military campaign led by Prince Muksus from Troy, now in modern Turkey.
Mira was part of a confederation that comprised ‘the Sea People’, who led a naval expedition into Syria. The Sea People worked their way down the Mediterranean coast, eventually establishing a stronghold in Ashkelon.
In the Bible, the Philistines are described as conquering the coastal region. Some historians conjecture that the term Philistine refers to a confederation of nations. Dr. Zangger admits that his knowledge of the Bible is too limited to draw conclusions, but according to his findings, the Philistines, described in the frieze as Philistia, were clearly an entity unto themselves.
“The Luwian hieroglyphics state that Mira is part of the confederation, which make up the Sea People, and also describes Philistia as being part of the Sea People, all of whom came from Western Asia Minor,” Dr. Zangger explained. “They were not a unit unto themselves but they could form a unit if needed. There were 150 separate place names, and one of them was clearly Philistia.”

Dr. Eberhard Zangger (Courtesy)
Dr. Zangger noted that like the other nations in the confederation, the Philistines came from Western Asia Minor.
Much of the manuscript has yet to be translated, so there may be more remarkable revelations in the future.
“This is one of the more special works of its kind in archaeology today,” Dr. Zangger said, noting that the original inscriptions, stone and bronze, may still come to light.

Congress Resolutions Slam UNESCO’s Israel Hatred, Proudly Support Biblical Ties to Jerusalem
By Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz October 17, 2017 , 1:30 pm
“Behold, I will make Yerushalayim a bowl of reeling for the peoples all around. Yehuda shall be caught up in the siege upon Yerushalayim.” Zechariah 12:2 (The Israel Bible™️)
The Senate side of the U.S. Capitol. (Wikimedia Commons)
One day after the US pulled out of the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) due to its anti-Israel bias, Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas) and Congressman Matt Gaetz (R-Fla) doubled down with twin resolutions supporting the historic and Biblical Jewish connection to Jerusalem that UNESCO has tried to erase.
Last week, Rep. Gaetz presented a resolution to the Congress in support of Israel and Jerusalem. The resolution condemns UNESCO’s anti-Israel actions and calls on the US to prevent such resolutions in the future. Later in the week, Senator Cruz will present an identical resolution to the Senate.
Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL)
“I rise today to support our friend and ally Israel and to stand for the obvious proposition that Israel, the Jewish people, have an ancient connection to the city of Jerusalem,” Gaetz told the press after presenting Resolution 570 to the House.
“This connection has been forged through millennia shared faith and shared history, yet the UN is actually trying to rewrite history and condemn Jerusalem and call it an occupying power in Jerusalem and prevent scientists from excavating even though past findings have been significant.”
“They have been silent when Israel’s culture has been attacked including the desecration and burning of holy sites,” Gaetz continued, referring to the Tomb of Joseph, which has been burned and vandalized multiple times. “[The UN’s] cruelty and attempts to erase history and anti-Semitism cannot be tolerated any longer.”
Senator Cruz, who co-authored the resolution, is expected to present the sister motion, Resolution 291, to the Senate later this week. Cruz addressed the press alongside Gaetz.
“I am proud to have worked with Rep. Matt Gaetz on this bicameral resolution that formally rejects UNESCO’s shameful and absurd attempts to deliberately erase the history of Jerusalem, Israel’s eternal capital,” Cruz said on Friday. “This resolution reaffirms the profound historical connection of the Jewish people to Jerusalem that has existed for thousands of years, describes archeological excavations at the City of David that have revealed incontrovertible, physical evidence of the Jewish, as well as Christian ties to Jerusalem, and denounces efforts at UNESCO to delegitimize Israel and deny historical truth.”

Hamas-PA Unity Already on Shaky Ground as Abbas Mantains Gaza Sanctions
By JNS October 17, 2017 , 9:30 am
“He who loves transgression loves strife.” Proverbs 17:19 (The Israel Bible™️)

Despite a reconciliation deal signed last week between rival Palestinian factions, the Palestinian terror group Hamas slammed Palestinian Authority (PA) President Mahmoud Abbas, who heads the Fatah party, for not yet lifting crippling sanctions on the Gaza Strip.
“The failure of [Palestinian] Authority President Mahmoud Abbas to respond affirmatively to the popular and national demands to cancel his arbitrary measures against our people in Gaza is unjustifiable and a clear denial of the demands of reconciliation,” Hamas spokesman Fawzi Barhoum tweeted Monday. “He must bear responsibility for exacerbating the people’s suffering and crises.”
As part of the unity deal signed last week, the PA promised to lift sanctions imposed on the Hamas-ruled Gaza over the past year in exchange for the restoration of a PA-controlled government in Gaza by December 1.
In a statement, Fatah spokesman Osama Qawasmeh said sanctions would likely only be lifted once the PA allowed Gaza back in power.
“We agreed with Hamas in Cairo to enable the government to work. We need to make sure this is achieved,” Qawasmeh said, the Jerusalem Post reported. “The government will be going to Gaza this week to evaluate the situation. Thereafter, it will send a report to the President [Abbas], who will make the appropriate decision.”
There also remains several outstanding questions over the reconciliation deal, including the future of Hamas’s armed wing comprised of some 25,000 fighters.

‘Defenders of Jerusalem’ Plan Will Protect Holy City From UNESCO ‘Assault’: Minister

“Pray for the well-being of Yerushalayim; May those who love you be at peace.” Psalms 122:6 (The Israel Bible™️)
Jerusalem. (Avraham Gracier/Wikipedia)
The Israeli government is launching a campaign to “defend Jerusalem in the international arena” in the wake of United Nations attacks, Jerusalem Affairs and Heritage Minister Ze’ev Elkin told a gathering of Christian journalists on Monday.
Jerusalem is under “unprecedented assault,” Elkin said, referring to a United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) resolution, passed on Israel’s Independence Day in May, which completely denies Israeli sovereignty over Jerusalem.
“Today, Jerusalem is at the eye of a storm, under an unprecedented assault born from malice and ignorance that attempts to rewrite her history and erase her deep link to the millennia-old history of the Jewish people,” Elkin said at the Christian Media Summit.

“This assault is directed not only at Jerusalem’s Jewish roots, but also at the fundamental beliefs of the Christian faith,” he continued, emphasizing Jerusalem’s importance to Christians and Bible believers.
Jerusalem, he pointed out, is “the birthplace of the Christian faith, in whose streets occurred the defining events of Christian history and consciousness, the Christian story. “Anyone who attempts to erase from history the Jerusalem of King David and King Solomon, of the greatest of the prophets, Isaiah and Jeremiah, the Jerusalem of Ezra and Nechemia, and of the Maccabees, and the Jerusalem of the last days of the Second Temple that served as a central arena for the greatest events the shaped Christian consciousness – that same rewriter of history denies the Bible in its entirety.”

Ancient Roman Theater Discovered Under Kotel Proves "Deep Connection of Jewish People to Jerusalem”
By Eliana Rudee October 16, 2017 , 12:30 pm
“Fair Tzion, the lovely and delicate, I will destroy,” Jeremiah 6:2 (The Israel Bible™️)
Remains of the newly unearthed Roman theater found beneath the Western Wall. (Eliana Rudee/Breaking Israel News)
In a surprising find by the Israel Antiquities Authority (IAA), archaeologists have unearthed an ancient theater, the first ever found in Jerusalem, which proves Jewish heritage reaches back thousands of years. Dating back to the Roman period, the Western Wall Heritage Foundation and the Western Wall rabbi have deemed the finding to be affirmation of the eternal bond between the Jewish people to Jerusalem and the Western Wall, which predates the Roman structure.
Yohanna Bisroar of the Western Wall Heritage Foundation told Breaking Israel News that the Roman structure, which is found near the Western Wall, or Kotel, is “another testimony of the deep connection of the Jewish people to Jerusalem and to the Western Wall.”
“The Roman structure is found near the Western Wall. So when we see that the Western Wall was first here and then the Roman structure arrived, for us that’s the most exciting part,” she explained.
Similarly, the rabbi of the Western Wall, Rabbi Shmuel Rabinowitz, lauded the archeological findings that “allow our generation to actually touch the ancient history of our people and Jewish heritage and its deep connection to Jerusalem.” He continued, “I am certain that the deeper we dig, the earlier the periods we will reach, further anchoring the profound connection of the Jewish people to the Land of Israel and to Jerusalem.”
In collaboration with The Western Wall Heritage Foundation, the IAA excavated the Roman theater-like structure under Wilson’s arch in the Western Wall Tunnels beneath the Kotel. The excavations have exposed a large, preserved portion of the Western Wall stone courses that has been hidden for 1,700 years.
According to site excavators Dr. Joe Uziel, Tehillah Lieberman, and Dr. Avi Solomon, from a research perspective, this is a “sensational” and “emotional” finding, as it confirms historical writings from the Second Temple period and after, such as the writings of Romano-Jewish scholar Flavius Josephus, which describe theater-like structures near the Temple Mount.

“The discovery was a real surprise. When we started excavating, our goal was to date Wilson’s Arch. We did not imagine that a window would open for us onto the mystery of Jerusalem’s lost theater.

“There is no doubt that the exposure of the courses of the Western Wall and the components of Wilson’s Arch are thrilling discoveries that contribute to our understanding of Jerusalem,” said the site excavators.

Eliav spoke of the “living historical mosaic of Jerusalem” that this discovery creates, saying, “There is no doubt as to the immeasurably rich scientific value of the discoveries in this area. The findings symbolize the guests from past empires that were here and have been here ever since and always.”
The excavated area measures eight meters deep, 15 meters wide, and contains the foundations of approximately 200 seats. Dating of pottery and coins in the area indicate that the theater is from the late Roman period in the second and the third centuries CE, when Jerusalem became the Roman colony of Aelia Capitolina.

The location of the excavations, Wilson’s Arch, is the only intact, observable edifice remaining from the Temple Mount compound of the Second Temple period. The arch was once part of an enormous bridge leading to the Temple Mount from the west and served as a passageway for people entering the Temple. Until now, the location of the Roman public buildings that were described in historical sources was unknown.

According to the excavation directors, a final analysis and carbon-14 dating of the structure conducted by the Weizmann Institute will be released in approximately six months. However, archaeologists hypothesize that the structure is an unfinished and unused odeon used for acoustic performances from the Roman colony of Aelia Capitolina. Alternatively, the structure may have been a bouleuterion, the building where the city council met.
Archaeologists note that the staircase found at the site was never completely hewn, indicating that the building was likely abandoned before it was used, perhaps because of the Bar Kokhba Revolt.

Hamas Agrees to Stop Terror Attacks in New Palestinian Unity Deal: Report
By Abra Forman October 15, 2017 , 9:30 am
“Hashem informed me, and I knew— Then You let me see their deeds.” Jeremiah 11:18 (The Israel Bible™️)

Palestinian terror group Hamas has agreed to stop carrying out violent terror attacks in Judea and Samaria as part of a unity deal between Hamas and Palestinian Authority (PA) ruling faction Fatah, according to the Arabic London-based paper Asharq Al-Awsat.
The reconciliation deal, signed by the PA and Fatah in Egypt on Thursday, stipulates that Hamas halt terror activity against Jews in the ‘West Bank’ so as to avoid sparking confrontations with Israel which could jeopardize diplomatic relations.
In exchange, Hamas will have an equal voice with the PA in making decisions related to Palestinian-Israeli peace negotiations or declarations of war, Asharq Al-Awsat reported.
While PA President Mahmoud Abbas had previously vowed that no unity deal would be reached without a full disarming of Hamas’s military, no such agreement was included in the deal signed Thursday.
Hamas militants have planned and carried out dozens of terror attacks against Jews and Israelis in Judea and Samaria, while on occasion Palestinian Authority security forces have worked with Israeli authorities to uncover and thwart terror plots.
According to the terms of the agreement, the Palestinian Authority will take over governance of the Gaza enclave on December 1.

US Senate Passes Anti-Hezbollah Bill, Earning Jewish, Christian Praise
By Eliana Rudee October 15, 2017 , 11:30 am
“Happy is the man who has not followed the counsel of the wicked, or taken the path of sinners, or joined the company of the insolent.” Psalms 1:1 (The Israel Bible™️)
Pastor John Hagee, founder of Christians United for Israel (CUFI).
In the context of a golden age for Jewish-Christian relations and strong Christian support for Israel, Zionist Jews and Christians joined forces to praise the passing of a bill in the U.S. Senate that imposes sanctions on the terrorist group Hezbollah and its affiliates.
Hezbollah, a US-recognized state sponsor of terrorism in Lebanon, is an Iranian-backed proxy that has been stockpiling barrel bombs, ammunition, rockets, mortars and weapons on the southern Lebanese border with Israel. It has trained highly skilled fighters and amassed thousands of weapons directed at Israel’s civilian population, in anticipation of a third Lebanon-Israel war.
This month, the “Hizballah International Financing Prevention Amendments Act of 2017,” sponsored by Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) and Senator Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH), passed in the U.S. Senate with an amendment by unanimous consent.
Together, Christian and Jewish leaders reaffirmed the bipartisan commitment, surpassing religious difference, to confront Israel’s enemies.
Christians United for Israel (CUFI) founder and Chairman Pastor John Hagee said in a statement supporting the Act, “Hezbollah is a terrorist army. They’ve killed hundreds of Americans and Israelis and have allied themselves with the butchers in Damascus and the tyrants in Tehran. We must do everything we can to stop this evil organization and this legislation is a good step in the right direction.”US Senate Passes Anti-Hezbollah Bill, Earning Jewish, Christian Praise

Artificial Intelligence Revolutionizing How Israel Defends Itself
By JNS October 15, 2017 , 8:30 am
“Do not rejoice over me, O my enemy! Though I have fallen, I rise again; Though I sit in darkness, Hashem is my light.” Micah 7:8 (The Israel Bible™️)
image: https://www.breakingisraelnews.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/Untitled-design-24.jpg
By: Yaakov Lappin/JNS.org
Artificial Intelligence (AI), in pop culture and science fiction, suffers from an image of being a technology posing a threat to humanity. But in the real world, AI’s many benefits are just beginning to come to light, and it has sparked a quiet revolution inside one of the world’s most sophisticated militaries.
Today, AI is revolutionizing the ways in which Israel defends itself. AI systems are providing recommendations to military commanders, both on the battlefield and in command centers, in ways that no human adviser could.
AI is affecting every aspect of how the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) operates, from monitoring enemies to the ways in which strategic decisions are made, Lt.-Col. Nurit Cohen Inger, a senior IDF officer overseeing the introduction of this cutting-edge technology, told JNS.org.
image: https://www.breakingisraelnews.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/cyberspies.jpg
Illustration: Cyber Security IDF Unit. (IDF Spokesperson)
Inger, who heads the IDF’s Sigma Department, which is a part of the Lotem information technology and communications unit, views AI as a game changer for the military.
One significant boost AI provides the IDF is the ability to accurately predict what enemies will do, based on an analysis of what they’ve done and are currently doing, Inger said.
Technologies like machine learning and deep learning are gradually being introduced at all levels of IDF decision making, she said.
While many examples of these changes remain classified, Inger revealed how AI is already assisting the IDF in analyzing its vast quantity of video feeds, which are provided to the IDF by cameras fixated on potential hot spots.
“There are lots of algorithms for video analysis,” Inger said, adding that AI systems analyze real-time video feeds, and then assist the IDF in making decisions accordingly.
Eventually, Inger argued, this technology should replace human operators who staff control rooms watching surveillance video feeds for lengthy shifts around the clock.
“Many roles that exist now will disappear and new roles will appear because of this,” she said.
The same kind of technology is helping the IDF deal with the avalanche of audio and text-based intelligence they receive.
AI, Internet of Things and the IDF
In the civilian world, the Internet of Things (IOT), a network of internet-connected devices from cars to kitchen appliances to wearable devices, is taking root. In the IDF, soldiers and platforms are broadcasting vast amounts of data on their own activities to the military’s shared data network.
The IDF is using artificial intelligence to take stock of what its units are doing. This, Inger said, will enable officials to make significantly more effective battlefield decisions.
Important breakthroughs in computing have occurred in recent years, which have been accompanied by a data revolution, Inger said, where enormous quantities of information are sent and received.

Pastor Alex Cho, chairman of the Taiwan Holocaust Peace Museum, has taken on the unique mission of showing fellow Taiwanese Christians how Biblical prophecy has been fulfilled throughout Jewish history and how it continues to be fulfilled in the modern State of Israel.
Pastor Cho, an enthusiastic Israel supporter, recently visited Israel for the 12th time. He has brought over 600 members of his congregation with him to fulfill this mission of educating the Taiwanese Christian communities about Israel, the Jewish people, and the Torah.
“In the beginning, I didn’t think it was my duty or responsibility to do this work,” Pastor Cho told Breaking Israel News. “But after I went to the Jerusalem and the Temple Mount and met the Jewish people, I felt this mission.”

In this Round of Reconciliation Talks, Hamas is the Great Victor
By Caroline Glick October 8, 2017 , 10:00 am
Tuesday a delegation of 400 Fatah officials from Ramallah, led by Palestinian Authority Prime Minister Rami Hamdallah, arrived in Gaza to officially surrender to Hamas.

No, the ceremony isn’t being portrayed as a Fatah surrender to Hamas. But it is. It’s also an Egyptian surrender to Hamas.

How is this the case? Ten years ago this past June, after a very brief and deadly assault by Hamas terrorists against US-trained Fatah forces in Gaza, the Fatah forces cut and ran to Israel for protection. Fatah politicians also headed for the border and then scurried into Fatah-controlled (and Israeli protected) Ramallah. Ever since Hamas has served as the official authority on the ground in Gaza. Its personnel has been responsible for internal security and for Gaza’s borders with Egypt and Israel.

Despite their humiliating defeat and removal from Gaza, Fatah and its PA government in Ramallah continued to fund Hamas-controlled Gaza. They paid Gaza’s bills, including the salaries of all the PA security forces that were either no longer working or working double shifts or stay at home Fatah gunmen and up and coming Hamas terrorist forces.

The PA paid Hamas’s electricity bills to Israel and it paid Israeli hospitals which continued to serve Gaza. Internationally, the PA defended Hamas and its constant wars against Israel. The PA and Fatah, led by President-for-life Mahmoud Abbas, continued to use Israel’s defensive operations against Hamas as a means to ratchet up their political war against Israel. The latest victory in that war came last week with Interpol’s decision to permit the PA to join the organization despite its open support for and finance of terrorism.

Where Have All the Feminists Gone?
By Dr. Phyllis Chesler October 10, 2017 , 7:00 am
I came into my feminist destiny in 1967, both as an academic and as an activist. Our original feminist vision was radical and transformative. We believed in universal human rights. We envisioned multicultural diversity but we were not multicultural relativists. We called out misogyny when we saw it and did not exempt a rapist, a wife-beater, or a pedophile because he was poor (his victims were also usually poor), or was a man of color (his victims were often people of color), or had an abused childhood (so had his victims).
Like other American radical feminists, I was active in the civil rights and anti-war movements. Unlike other feminists, I had “once lived in a harem in Afghanistan.” This is the opening line of my book, An American Bride in Kabul. Quite unexpectedly, I lived in a polygamous household in very posh purdah—which meant I was not allowed out without a male escort. Quite surprisingly, my father-in-law had three wives and 21 children—facts my Westernized husband failed to mention during our long American college courtship.
When I was 20, I saw Afghan women stumbling around in burqas—sensory-deprivation isolation chambers, ambulatory body bags. These ghosts were forced to sit at the back of the bus. This was long before the Taliban arose. I remembered that sight even when I critiqued American sexism, racism, homophobia—and imperial overreach.

Hundreds of Christians Bless Lulav, Etrog at ICEJ Feast of Tabernacles [PHOTOS]
By Maayan Jaffe-Hoffman October 13, 2017 , 8:30 am
“Take the product of hadar trees, branches of palm trees, boughs of leafy trees, and willows of the brook, and you shall rejoice before Hashem.” Leviticus 23:40 (The Israel Bible™️)
image: https://www.breakingisraelnews.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/christian-lulav.jpg
Hundreds of Christians made a blessing over the lulav and etrog during Sukkot at the ICEJ Feast of Tabernacles event. (Israel365)
Several hundred Christian participants in the International Christian Embassy’s 2017 Feast of Tabernacles shook the lulav and etrog for the first time earlier this week.
The lulav, a date palm branch, combined with myrtle and willow branches and a etrog or citron fruit, is one of the key symbols of Sukkot. Jews are commandment to shake the lulav in Leviticus.
On the first day you shall take the product of hadar trees, branches of palm trees, boughs of leafy trees, and willows of the brook, and you shall rejoice before Hashem your God seven days. Leviticus 23:40
Shortly before Sukkot, which ran from Oct. 4 to 11 in Israel, a prominent Israeli rabbi made a halachic (Jewish law) ruling that not only can Christians shake the lulav and etrog on Sukkot, but that they can do it with a blessing. He gave the ruling on condition of anonymity.
Jews are commanded to wave the lulav each day of the Sukkot holiday, except on Shabbat. Most people wave it in the morning, either before or during the morning prayer service.
Israel365 set up a booth at ICEJ at which participants could learn about the Jewish holiday, wave the lulav, and recite the blessing with a related meditation. Throngs of Christians stopped by to try it. Shakers included men and women of all ages from more than 50 countries.

In Memory of Holiday Pilgrimage, Ascending to the Temple Mount On Sukkot [PHOTOS]
By Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz October 13, 2017 , 12:21 pm
“Gad came to David the same day and said to him, “Go and set up a mizbayach to Hashem on the threshing floor of Araunah the Jebusite.” II Samuel 24:18 (The Israel Bible™️)

Ascending the Temple Mount (Photo by Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz/Breaking Israel News)
A Sukkot visit to the Temple Mount, currently a mostly-empty site full of ancient stones, graphically illustrates how far away the Biblical reality is. Though the glory of the Temple is still in ruins, the glow of holiness is still evident.
On a desperately limited basis, Jews are permitted to walk quickly through the site, closely guarded by police and Waqf Muslim Authority guards, who ensure that the only prayers emanating from the site are uttered in Arabic. Despite 2,000 years of exile and the Muslim veneer, the site still glows with the Holy presence that, according to Jewish tradition, has never left the site since Solomon first established his Temple.
Jews who wish to visit their holiest site are only permitted to enter the Temple Mount via one gate and at set hours that are severely limited and prone to cancellation at any signs of Arab violence. Separated out from tourists, Jewish visitors are organized into groups. No religious articles, books, signs of Israeli nationalism or laptop computers are allowed. Visitors must present identification and background checks are conducted. Jews are scrupulously checked and must pass through a metal detector. In comparison, Arabs have access to the site via eleven gates and there are no security measures.

47,000 Christian Pilgrims Infuse Jerusalem With Joy - and Economic Bounty - on Sukkot
By Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz October 10, 2017 , 11:30 am
“Three times a year—on the festival of Pesach, on the festival of Shavuot, and on the festival of Sukkot—all your males shall appear before Hashem your God in the place that He will choose. They shall not appear before Hashem empty-handed.” Deuteronomy 16:16 (The Israel Bible™️)

Christian tourists are flooding Jerusalem during the holiday of Sukkot, bringing a blessing to the economy in a manner reminiscent of Jerusalem in the days of the Temple, when pilgrims filled the city’s markets. This faith-based tourism has its own special flavor, connecting Jews and Christians in unexpected ways.
In what is shaping up to be a record year for tourism, the Sukkot holiday was an especially blessed period. According to the Israeli Ministry of Tourism, 739,000 tourists visited Israel in the first quarter of the year, a 24 percent increase from the same period last year, giving an estimated $1.14 billion boost to the economy.

In addition to the holy sites and other tourist attractions that have always attracted people of all religions to Israel, the Sukkot holiday offers a special atmosphere created by the festive booths and many activities and events, both religious and secular. The Ministry of Tourism estimated that the week-long holiday attracted an astounding 47,000 Christians.
Undoubtedly the largest draw for Christians during Sukkot is the week-long Feast of Tabernacles hosted by the International Christian Embassy Jerusalem (ICEJ). The event brings over 5,000 Christians from 85 nations to Jerusalem, and though their intention is to bless the nation of Abraham and to be blessed in return, hosting these well-minded pilgrims brings an economic blessing as well.

Faith-based diplomacy is leading the efforts against delegitimization of Israel, said Josh Reinstein, president of the Israel Allies Foundation (IAF) on Monday.
This week, IAF, together with the World Jewish Congress, the International Christian Embassy in Jerusalem (ICEJ) and Bridges for Peace, brought 27 members of parliament (MPs) from 15 countries to Israel for the Jerusalem Chairman’s Conference to arm participants with the inspiration and clarity they need to defend the State of Israel in their home countries.
“We witness once again the rise of anti-Semitism around the world, which is often couched in political stances against Israel’s right to exist,” said Reinstein.
On Monday, the delegation signed a resolution forcefully rejecting all declarations seeking to deny Israel’s and Jerusalem’s Jewish origins, as well as any misrepresentation of the Jewish State of Israel as an occupier.
The resolution calls upon governments to adopt the US State Department’s and the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance’s definition of anti-Semitism, and thereby recognize that anti-Israel and anti-Zionist expression can be used to convey anti-Jewish bigotry

Echoing the past glory of what used to occur in the Temple, approximately 50,000 people gathered at the Kotel (the Western Wall) on Sunday to receive the priestly blessing from hundreds of Kohanim (Jewish men of the priestly caste) during the festival holiday of Sukkot. Jews and non-Jews, religious and secular, people from all over the world, filled Jerusalem for the holiday that, in Temple times, was a universal celebration honoring the God of Abraham.

Trump Wants to “Give Peace a Shot” Before Moving Embassy to Jerusalem
By Abra Forman October 8, 2017 , 9:30 am
“Let me hear what Hashem, Hashem, will speak; He will promise well-being to His people, His faithful ones; may they not turn to folly.” Psalms 85:9 (The Israel Bible™️)

President Donald Trump’s plan to delay moving the U.S. Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem until his administration attempts an Israeli-Palestinian peace deal won’t help to make peace, MKs Yehudah Glick and Tzipi Hotovely told Breaking Israel News after the president revealed his vision in interview with Trinity Broadcast Network’s (TBN) Mike Huckabee on Saturday
MK Yehudah Glick, Likud. (Knesset)
“I don’t think that transferring the embassy to Jerusalem should happen after we achieve peace but as part of achieving peace. Any delay will not get us closer,” MK Glick told Breaking Israel News while touring Rachel’s Tomb with the Israel Allies Foundation (IAF).
“We all want peace. But real peace will be when the world recognizes Jerusalem as the eternal capital of the Jewish people. Trump said he would recognize this and we expect him to do it.”
MK Tzipi Hotovely agreed, arguing that a unified Jerusalem was the best way to encourage peace.
“If you really would like to give peace a chance, move the embassy to Jerusalem in order to make sure Jerusalem will never be divided and to make sure Jews and Arabs can live peacefully together,” she told Breaking Israel News on the IAF tour.

“In the Middle East, where we live, the fact that terrorism is here is not because we gave up the idea of a peace process, but because they would like to remove Israel from the map of the Middle East.”
Trump’s campaign promise to open an embassy in Israel’s capital was a major appeal to Evangelical Christian voters, but the president has hesitated since taking office. He told the Christian media network that the decision over the move to Jerusalem would be made “in the not too distant future.”
“They say the toughest deal of all is peace between Israel and the Palestinians, so we’re going to work off that, and if that doesn’t work, which it’s possible that it won’t, to be totally honest,” he said. “I’m not making any predictions, but I want to give that a shot before I think about moving the embassy to Jerusalem.”
Maayan Hoffman contributed to this report.

The Kotel Plaza had a distinctive holiday atmosphere as thousands of lulavs (palm fronds) waved in the air. Sukkot is a particularly aesthetic holiday in which Jews are commanded to dwell in gaily-decorated booths for seven days. The prayer service performed at the Kotel prior to the Priestly Blessing included hallel, celebratory verses in Psalms which are sung while waving the Four Species: a frond from a palm tree, myrtle leaves, willow leaves, and a citron (etrog in Hebrew).

This event was a much larger enactment of the Kohanic blessings that are part of the regular prayers. In the presence of a quorum, the Kohanim are called to bless the congregation in a rite that has its roots in the Bible.
(Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz/Breaking Israel News)

Before giving the blessing, the Kohanim had their hands washed by Levites, men from the tribe of Levi, tasked with serving in the Temple. The Kohanim then moved to the front of the crowd and took up places adjacent to the ancient stones of the Kotel. They removed their shoes, since the priests served in the Temple barefoot, and covered themselves entirely in a tallit (prayer shawl).

The blessing is performed by the priests holding their hands up with the fingers of both hands separated so as to make five spaces between them. The spaces are between the ring finger and middle finger of each hand, between the index finger and thumb of each hand, and the two thumbs touch each other at the knuckle.
Speak to Aharon and his sons: Thus shall you bless the people of Yisrael. Say to them:
Hashem bless you and protect you!
Hashem deal kindly and graciously with you!
Hashem bestow His favor upon you and grant you peace!
Numbers 6:23-26

Many VIPs came to be blessed as well. Both new chief rabbis, Ashkenazi Chief Rabbi David Lau and Sephardi Chief Rabbi Yitzhak Yosef, were present, as was Likud MK Rabbi Yehudah Glick. The U.S. Ambassador to Israel, David Friedman, a religious Jew, also attended.

The event takes place twice a year, during chol hamoed (the intermediary days) of Sukkot and Passover. In Temple times, people of all faiths came from all over the world to celebrate Sukkot alongside the Jews. This is reflected in modern times as the city of Jerusalem fills up with tourists from around the world.

On Tuesday, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu continued a longstanding tradition when he hosted a Bible study group at his residence in Jerusalem. This tradition has deep roots in the first-family and has Biblical significance for leaders of Israel.
The Bible study group was a tradition begun by David Ben Gurion, Israel’s first prime minister. It was discontinued but Prime Minister Menachem Begin reinstated the practice in the late ’70’s. The practice was abandoned but Prime Minister Netanyahu restarted the study group to honor the passing of Shmuel Ben Artzi, Sara Netanyahu’s father who passed away in 2011. Ben Artzi was a noted writer, poet, and educator, as well as a scholar of the Bible.
The study session was attended by Bat-Galim Shaer, the mother of Gil-ad Shaer, who was abducted and murdered by Hamas terrorists along with two other teenage boys in the summer of 2014.
Upon the conclusion of the study session, Shaer gave Netanyahu and his wife a book she recently wrote about her son.
“There is no Jewish existence without the Bible; it doesn’t exist,” the prime minister said. “In my opinion, there is also no Jewish future without the Bible.”

“There is no Jewish existence without the Bible; it doesn’t exist,” the prime minister said. “In my opinion, there is also no Jewish future without the Bible.”
Bible study is a first-family tradition. Three of Sara Netanyahu’s siblings won both the National Bible Quiz and the International Bible Quiz. In 2010, Avner, the prime minister’s son, won first-place in the National Bible Quiz and went on to take third-place in the International Bible Contest.
The Netanyahu clan’s connection to the Bible is strongly reminiscent of the Biblical commandment for a king of Israel to write a personal Torah scroll. The Torah mandates that the bond between the ruler and the Bible be constant and unbreakable, similar to the manner embodied by the Netanyahu family.
And it shall be with him, and he shall read therein all the days of his life; that he may learn to fear Hashem his God, to keep all the words of this law and these statutes, to do them, that his heart be not lifted up above his brethren, and that he turn not aside from the commandment, to the right hand, or to the left; to the end that he may prolong his days in his kingdom, he and his children, in the midst of Israel. Deuteronomy 17:19-20
This Biblical mandate seemed to come alive two years ago, when Prime Minister Netanyahu took a break from his duties to compete in the International Bible Quiz in Jerusalem.

Washington Sources Say President Will Reject Iran Nuclear Deal Next Week
By Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz October 6, 2017 , 2:09 am
“As for those peoples that warred against Yerushalayim, Hashem will smite them with this plague: Their flesh shall rot away while they stand on their feet; their eyes shall rot away in their sockets; and their tongues shall rot away in their mouths.” Zechariah 14:12 (The Israel Bible™️)
image: https://www.breakingisraelnews.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/02/iran-nuclear-flag.jpg
(Photo: United Against Nuclear Iran / Facebook)
Multiple sources in Washington D.C. have reported that President Donald Trump plans on decertifying the Iran nuclear deal next week.
On Wednesday, The Washington Free Beacon and The Washington Post reported that President Trump is expected to declare Iran in breach of the deal next week. The Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), the deal that was brokered by former President Barack Obama with Iran first signed in 2015, has to be recertified by the president every ninety days and the next deadline is October 15. President Trump has recertified the deal twice since entering the Oval Office. If the Iran deal is decertified by the president, the decision is then moved to Congress which will have 60 days to decide the future of the deal, which might include reinstating sanctions that were removed under the agreement.
The president is scheduled to deliver a speech on October 12, but the White House has not confirmed that the speech will take place or what its subject matter will be. Sarah Huckabee Sanders, the White House press secretary, said in a press conference on Thursday, “The president is going to make an announcement about the decision that he’s made on a comprehensive strategy that his team supports, and we’ll do that in the coming days.”
Opponents of the nuclear deal have claimed that the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), the nuclear watchdog tasked with verifying Iranian compliance, have been prevented from doing their job.
“The IAEA’s admission that they are unable to verify a fundamental provision under the nuclear deal—that the Iranians are not engaging in activities or using equipment to develop a nuclear explosive device—is highly alarming. In these circumstances, issuing a compliance certification would be a serious mistake,” Texas Senator Ted Cruz said to the press.
“If the Iranians are serious about a peaceful program, they need to prove it. Iran’s continued refusal to allow IAEA access to military sites—a clear requirement of the terms of the deal—renders the JCPOA utterly ineffective, and, even worse, a sham that only facilitates Iran’s acquiring nuclear weapons. This absence of any meaningful verification is yet another reason to vitiate this foolhardy agreement.”
Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said last month that he will not reopen the deal for negotiations.

Sukkot is a State of Mind
By Rabbi Dr. Nathan Lopes Cardozo October 4, 2017 , 7:00 am
Traveling through a desert is journeying through a lonely place, completely forsaken. There is neither food nor water nor any other form of sustaining substance. There are only the unbearable sun and its heat. There is no grass, and there are no trees. The only signs of life are deadly snakes and scorpions. In a desert, death stares you in the face. It is a dangerous and outrageous place.
But a desert is also a magnificent locale, filled with grandeur and full of life. It is an area where many things can happen that are impossible in any other location.
First and foremost, it is a place of authenticity; and therefore a place of miracles.
Because the desert is an area of devastating silence, there is no distraction and no competition.
It is the desert’s thundering silence that allows a “still voice” within us to speak, and that cannot bear mediocrity. Instead, a desert seeks singular excellence, even when most men cannot recognize it as such. It protests against those who are appeased when they find something old in the new, even though it is clear that this old could not have given birth to this new.
The Egyptian French poet Edmond Jabès noted the connection between the Hebrew words “dabar” (word) and “midbar” (desert). This, he claims, goes to the core of what it means to be a Jew:
“With exemplary regularity the Jew chooses to set out for the desert, to go toward a renewed word that has become his origin… A wandering word is the word of God. It has for its echo the word of a wandering people. No oasis for it, no shadow, no peace. Only the immense, thirsty desert, only the book of this thirst…” (From the Book to the Book: An Edmond Jabès Reader [Hanover, NH: Wesleyan University Press, 1991] pp. 166-7)
In the emptiness and silence of the desert, an authentic inner voice can be heard while sitting in the sukkah, a hut that existentially gives protection but in no way physically shields. Its roof leaks and its walls fall apart the moment a wind blows. It is a place with no excuses. But it can only be experienced by a people of the wilderness; a people who are not rooted in a substance of physical limitations and borders; a people who are not entirely fixed by an earthly point, even while living in a homeland. Their spirit reaches far beyond restrictive borders. They are particularistic so as to be universalistic. They are never satisfied with their spiritual condition and are therefore always on the road, looking for more, even when they live in their homeland, which is nothing more than a feeble sukkah.
They are a wandering people that can never permanently land because the runway is too narrow and they cannot fit into any final destination. They are a people who always experience unrest because they carry a spiritual secret that doesn’t fit anywhere and wanders in the existential state of an unlimited desert. An existential experience that unnerves because it’s rooted in the desert where it becomes deadly, if not properly handled.
But a desert is even more. It is an area where nothing can be tangibly achieved. In a desert, people cannot prove themselves, at least not in the conventional sense. It doesn’t offer jobs that people can fight over and compete for. It has no factories, offices, or department stores. There are no bosses to order people around and no fellow workers with whom to compete. It is ‘prestige deprived.’ In a desert, there is no kavod (honor) to be received. It doesn’t have cities, homes, or fences. If it had these, it would no longer be a desert. Human achievements would end its desert status and would undermine and destroy the grandeur of its might and beauty.

Refugees, Intersectionalists, and Jews
By Dr. Denis MacEoin October 4, 2017 , 8:00 am
According to a leaked German government report, up to 6.6 million migrants — both refugees and migrants seeking a better life — are currently waiting to cross to Europe from Africa.
The “mistake” the Israelis made seems to have been that, although driven out as refugees, they exercised their right to self-determination, returned to their homeland, and turned it into one of the most successful countries in the world. The Palestinians, who had an equal opportunity to achieve that, remain in poverty and disarray, with terrorism for 80 years as their only notable achievement. If they had agreed to work with the Jews instead of fighting them, who knows where they might be today?
To begin with, there actually are no Palestinian people, as used in the current sense of the term. The Oslo Accords accurately refer to Arabs, which is what they are — Arabs who left Israel in the war of 1947-8 in order not to be involved in a conflict in which other Arabs fought with Jews and Christians and who currently make up more than a million of the Arabs now living in Israel as citizens with equal rights. Refugees are back in the news. This summer, the number of migrants crossing the Mediterranean from North Africa is likely to rise significantly. According to the Daily Telegraph:

In Growing Trend, Faith Entering Public Life as Legislators Show Rare Support
By Eliana Rudee October 3, 2017 , 9:30 am
“Go, inquire of Hashem on my behalf, and on behalf of the people, and on behalf of all Yehuda, concerning the words of this scroll that has been found.” II Kings 22:13 (The Israel Bible™️)

Religious movements and values are increasingly making their way into public life in the US as lawmakers introduce legislation to earmark federal funds for houses of worship and students bring their Bibles to school, signaling a new age in the interaction between ‘church’ and ‘state’ in America.
While the role of religion in public life has long been controversial among advocates for the separation of Church and State who consider these trends to be an encroachment on the U.S. constitution, recent months have seen a shift towards bringing the Bible, God, and houses of worship into the public arena. Both in politics and education, religious supporters are requesting legitimacy in public life, and legislators are listening.
Meanwhile, religious movements such as “Bring Your Bible to School Day,” which attracts hundreds of thousands of students across the nation each year, also aim to engage religion in public arenas. Surprisingly, the general shift towards accepting this trend has received widespread bipartisan support, backed by the U.S. Supreme Court, the President of the United States, Senate Republicans, and even several Democrats.
While these groups do not agree on much, when it comes to supporting houses of worship and enforcing freedom of religion, a rare consensus, perhaps signaling a new age in the interaction between religion and public life, is beginning.

In the wake of the recent major natural disasters in Texas and Florida, on September 19th, Senate Republicans Ted Cruz (R-TX), Roy Blunt (R-MO), Senate Majority Whip John Cornyn (R-TX), and James Lankford (R-OK) introduced the Federal Disaster Assistance Nonprofit Fairness Act, which would make houses of worship eligible for routine federal disaster aid. The proposed legislation seeks to permit religious institutions to receive federal relief, easing recovery efforts after natural disaster.
The bill has 18 cosponsors, 17 Republicans and Democratic Representative Grace Meng (D-NY), who argue that because houses of worship play an essential role in the daily lives of nationwide communities, they should receive public funding for rebuilding when disaster strikes. Often, they say, such religious institutions offer invaluable education, enrichment, and social activities that are essential for community building.
US President Donald Trump, who called for a day of prayer after Hurricane Harvey devastated Houston, chimed in on the conversation, tweeting in support of the bill.

Former FBI Agent Investigates: Who Betrayed Anne Frank?
By JNS October 4, 2017 , 8:30 am
“My ally in whom I trusted, even he who shares my bread, has been utterly false to me.” Psalms 41:10 (The Israel Bible™️)

Anne Frank. (Collectie Anne Frank Stichting Amsterdam via Wikimedia Commons.)
A retired FBI agent has launched an investigation into identifying those who may have betrayed the hiding place of Anne Frank and her family to the Gestapo secret police in 1944.
Former agent Vince Pankoke believes investigative techniques developed in the past decade, including the crunching of big data to uncover leads, will help his team of 19 forensic experts with research pertaining to Anne Frank, The Guardian reported.
The Anne Frank House in Amsterdam has welcomed the initiative, which is being filmed and chronicled online, as investigators—including historians, psychological profilers and former police detectives—work through the evidence.
Immediately after the war, Anne Frank’s father, Otto Frank, strongly suspected warehouse worker Wilhelm van Maaren of betraying the group’s hiding place. Two investigations by the Dutch police, however, did not find any evidence against Van Maaren.
“They weren’t really investigations,” said Pankoke. “I am working through the files and there are so many questions unanswered.”
Last December, the Anne Frank House museum published its own study suggesting the Franks may have been discovered by chance instead of being betrayed.
Pankoke, meanwhile, says his preparatory work—examining recently declassified documents shipped back to the U.S. after the war—has led to fresh insights.
According to The Guardian, the project leaders hope to unveil their findings Aug. 4, 2019, on the 75th anniversary of the Frank family’s arrest.

Feast of Tabernacles: Celebrating 37 Years of Christians’ Prophetic Gathering in Jerusalem [PHOTOS]

“May You hear in Your heavenly abode and grant whatever the foreigner appeals to You for. Thus all the peoples of the earth will know Your name and revere You, as does Your people Yisrael; and they will recognize that Your name is attached to this House that I have built.” II Chronicles 6:33 (The Israel Bible™️)

On Wednesday, the International Christian Embassy Jerusalem will begin its 37th annual Feast of Tabernacles, a spectacular week of devotion and learning that will bring together over 6,000 pilgrims from nearly 100 nations. Based on the gathering of nations in Solomon’s Temple for the holiday of Sukkot, the 2017 Feast is expected to be the largest yet, bringing about the prophetic gathering of nations in Jerusalem.
The Feast was first established by ICEJ in 1980, and has grown yearly ever since, with more and more Christians and international figures attending each year.

Frightening New Wave of Anti-Israel, Anti-Semitic Activity on Campuses Across US

Jewish college students returning after their summer break are encountering a wave of swastika daubings and anti-Israel activity on campuses across the country—and there are signs the hostility may intensify in the weeks ahead.
The latest incidents coincide with a new campaign by pro-Palestinian activists to portray Israel as a “white supremacist country,” linking the Jewish state to accusations about white supremacist activity in the U.S.
At Tufts University, near Boston, a “Disorientation Guide” prepared by militant students for incoming freshmen accused Israel of “white supremacy” and promoted “Israeli Apartheid Week,” which the Tufts branch of Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP) holds each spring.

The cover page of the “Disorientation Guide” prepared for incoming freshmen at Tufts University.
The guide also charged that when Jewish groups at Tufts sponsored a talk by the parents of Trayvon Martin—the African-American teenager shot in Florida in 2012—they were “exploiting black voices for their own pro-Israel agenda.”
SJP activists at Columbia University were among the authors of the Columbia edition of the “Disorientation Guide.” The guide brands Israel “an apartheid state” and encourages incoming students to join their campaign, “Columbia University Apartheid Divest.”

In Exotic Biblical Feast, Strange and Rare Delicacies Recall Ancient Ties Between Man and Beast [PHOTOS]

On Monday, the Biblical Museum of Natural History in Beit Shemesh hosted a “Feast of Exotic Curiosities” to order to revive the Biblical relationship between animal and man of Biblical times, serving rare and strange delicacies which the Bible says are kosher, but which have been largely lost to Jewish cuisine.
In co-creating the dinner, Rabbi Dr. Natan Slifkin, founder and director of The Biblical Museum of Natural History, sought to promote “a living and breathing Judaism that is connected to daily life, that is relevant within the modern world, and that adds value and meaning for the individual and for the community.” It was his desire, he told Breaking Israel News, “to draw inspiration from the beauty and wonder of the natural world and the great doings of God.”

Las Vegas Massacre Will Likely Cause Terror PTSD, Says Expert
By Tsivya Fox October 4, 2017 , 9:30 am
“His threat will terrify you, And His fear will seize you.” Job 13:11 (The Israel Bible™️)

Following the shooting massacre at an open-air country music concert in Las Vegas on Sunday which left 59 people murdered and 527 injured, David Rubin, terrorism expert and founder of Shiloh Israel Children’s Fund, which treats children in the Biblical heartland traumatized by terror, spoke with Breaking Israel News about what is needed to both prevent and heal from such a tragedy.
“There are various aspects to combating terror,” explained Rubin to Breaking Israel News. “On a national level, countries need to recognize that there is a jihadist Islamic evil ideology which creeps into the psyche of terrorists, even if they aren’t directly paid or led by radical Muslims. Governments cannot keep chasing individuals and calling them ‘lone wolf’ terrorists. Rather, they must recognize that their is a poisonous ideology which they must combat.”
The investigation into the motives of gunman, 64-year-old Stephen Paddock, is continuing. President Trump, appearing before reporters at the White House soon after the mass shooting, called it “an act of pure evil“. ISIS has claimed responsibility, stating that Paddock was a recent convert to Islam, but the FBI has found no evidence of any ties to militant or radical organizations.
“In either case, the resultant PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) is about the same,” continued Rubin. “There is, perhaps, a subtle psychological difference between knowing that a terrorist is part of a radical ideological group, which might cause people greater trauma, than if the person is a crazed individual. However, in both situations, the psychological reverberations and suffering are enormous.”

Abbas Refuses to Allow 'Hezbollah Model' With Hamas Militants in Gaza

Palestinian Authority (PA) President Mahmoud Abbas said Monday he would not allow the Gaza-ruling Palestinian terror group Hamas to keep its weapons and armed brigades if control of the coastal territory is transferred to the PA.
“All control needs to be in the hands of the PA,” Abbas told the Egyptian television station CBC, ahead of a meeting between senior PA officials and Hamas members.
“I am not prepared to accept a reality like that which Hezbollah dictated in Lebanon. The organizations in Gaza needs to relinquish their weapons. We want to be one state, with one governing body, with one law, and one military body,” he said.
Abbas also warned that if these conditions are not met, efforts to form a Palestinian unity government between the rival factions could be halted.
“If we catch a weapon on a Hamas member, we will imprison him, just as is done with Fatah members who do not hold an official security position,” said Abbas.
Senior Hamas member Mousa Abu Marzook recently said the issue of dismantling the terror group’s military is not up for negotiation.
Earlier Monday, PA Prime Minister Rami Hamdallah arrived in Gaza for the first time since 2014, as the PA and Hamas initiated the first steps in forming a unity government. Hamdallah’s visit was intended as the first symbolic move towards transferring custodianship of the coastal territory from Hamas to the PA.

UN Uses Intimidation Tactics on Companies Working in Judea and Samaria
By Eliana Rudee October 1, 2017 , 11:30 am
“Because he was a hireling, that I might be intimidated and act thus and commit a sin, and so provide them a scandal with which to reproach me.” Nehemiah 6:13 (The Israel Bible™️)

The United Nations has sent letters to 150 companies that operate in Judea, Samaria, and the Golan Heights, threatening to add them to the their “blacklist” of firms that enable or benefit from the growth of Israeli settlements. The blacklist relies on intimidation tactics, as the UN would not be able to enforce a boycott of the Israeli companies listed on their blacklist. However, the UN “stamp of approval” is already influencing international companies to avoid direct or indirect transactions with Israeli companies.
In March, the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHCR) voted in favor (32 nations in favor and 15 abstentions) of the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) Act of 2017, which entails creating a “blacklist” of companies, the full list of which will be published this December. The blacklist includes major American corporations like Airbnb, Caterpillar, Priceline.com, and TripAdvisor as well as Israeli companies such as Coca-Cola Israel, Teva Pharmaceuticals, Bank Hapoalim, Bank Leumi, Bezeq, and Egged.

Out of the 150 companies that received letters, half are Israeli, 30 American, and the rest include countries such as Germany, South Korea, and Norway.
UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein began sending the letters in early September. According to senior Israeli officials and Western diplomats, as reported by Haaretz, the letters requested responses from the companies detailing their business activities in Israeli settlements.

Trump and Pence Send Yom Kippur Wishes to “Be Written in the Book of Life”
By Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz September 30, 2017 , 11:42 pm

“When he is seated on his royal throne, he shall have a copy of this Teaching written for him on a scroll by the levitical Kohanim.” Deuteronomy 17:18 (The Israel Bible™️)

image: https://www.breakingisraelnews.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/09/trump-yk.png

President Trump tweeted Yom Kippur wishes to Jews around the world. (Twitter)
Many heartfelt Yom Kippur greetings came out from the White House, including the President, the Vice President, and the First-Daughter.

Trump tweeted a photo of himself praying at the Kotel (Western Wall) with the caption, “My thoughts are with all those observing Yom Kippur, the holiest day of the Jewish year.”

My thoughts are with all those observing Yom Kippur, the holiest day of the Jewish year. pic.twitter.com/0LuZCZl29D

— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 29, 2017

Vice President Pence tweeted, “On this holiest of Jewish days, may our Jewish friends be granted a Yom Kippur of atonement, forgiveness & inscription in the Book of Life.”

On this holiest of Jewish days, may our Jewish friends be granted a Yom Kippur of atonement, forgiveness & inscription in the Book of Life.

— Mike Pence (@mike_pence) October 11, 2016

Last week, Pence issued a statement for the Jewish New Year which reflected a deep understanding and appreciation for the Jewish holiday.

The most important word during this most important period of the Jewish year is “Teshuvah,” or Repentance. Teshuva tells us we can change. It tells us that what we have been until this moment need not limit what we can become from this moment. It says we can be better tomorrow than we were today, and that in the affairs of humankind, nothing is fixed. Of all the manifold gifts bestowed upon us by the Almighty, is there any gift greater than the power He gave us to change?

Today, it is not just the Jewish people who find themselves and their freedoms imperiled. It is all of us. Therefore let us all approach this Jewish New Year with unity, solidarity, and a renewed strength of purpose.

Ivanka Trump, the president’s Jewish daughter, tweeted, “Wishing everyone an easy and meaningful fast and may we all be inscribed in the Book of Life. G’mar Hatimah Tovah! (A good final sealing, the traditional greeting for YomKippur).”

Wishing everyone an easy and meaningful fast and may we all be inscribed in the Book of Life. G’mar Hatimah Tovah! #YomKippur

Herzl Fulfilled Dream of Moses to Lead Jewish People Home: Netanyahu
By Eliana Rudee September 29, 2017 , 8:30 am
“Then Hashem said to Moshe, ‘Set out from here, you and the people that you have brought up from the land of Egypt, to the land of which I swore to Avraham, Yitzchak, and Yaakov, saying, “To your offspring will I give it.’” Exodus 33:1 (The Israel Bible™️)

At the 120th anniversary celebration of the First Zionist Congress on Wednesday evening on Mount Herzl in Jerusalem, Prime Minister Netanyahu proclaimed, “Herzl is the modern day Moses,” invoking the prophetic aspects of the State of Israel, namely, that the events in the Torah are a forecast of what will occur in the modern Jewish State.

Theodor Herzl, born in 1860 in the Austrian Empire (now Budapest, Hungary) was the founder of political Zionism, the movement to establish a Jewish homeland. Herzl was a journalist and playwright before being influenced into political activism by the Dreyfus affair, a notorious anti-Semitic incident in which a Jewish French army captain was falsely convicted of spying for Germany. He thus formed the World Zionist Organization and founded the First Zionist Congress in Basel, which led to the future formation of the Jewish State of Israel.

Franz Rosenzwag, a Jewish philosopher, saw Herzl as decisive proof of the historicity of the Biblical Moses. According to Dr. Shuki Friedman of the Israel Democracy Institute, whose areas of expertise include the relationship of religion and state and secular-religious relations, both men “established, ‘from the sand up’, a vision for the Jewish people and assembled them, from Egypt and the diaspora, into a community” – the Promised Land of Israel.

Herzl was not unaware of his similarities to Moses, and neither was Prime Minister Netanyahu the first to point out their connection. “Herzl followed and was aware of the prophetic ideas of Moses,” Dr. Friedman said, noting that Herzl had planned on writing a five-part Biblical drama about Moses.

Herzl evoked Moses in his own diary. Writing on June 2, 1895 in his diary he wrote, “It will be a long time before we arrive in the Promised Land. It took Moses 40 years.” When Herzl first met with him and outlined his vision, the Chief Rabbi of Vienna, Moritz Gudemann, told the Zionist visionary, “You remind me of Moses.”

Indeed, the connection between Moses, the legendary leader of the Israelites who received the Torah from Heaven, and Theodor Herzl, the modern founder of political Zionism and founder of the World Zionist Organization, is uncanny. While Moses heeded the divine call from God to lead the Jewish people into the Promised Land, Herzl’s belief that the Jewish people need a state in order to avoid anti-Semitism, express their culture freely, and practice religion without interference led to the establishment of the Jewish State and ingathering of exiles into the Promised Land.

Both leaders began their leadership journey as outsiders to the Jewish story. Although Moses belonged to a Jewish family, he grew up in the palace of Pharaoh. Similarly, although Herzl was raised in a Jewish family, he was a secular Jew without ties to the Jewish community. According to Jewish Virtual Library, Herzl “was educated in the spirit of the German-Jewish Enlightenment, and learned to appreciate secular culture.” His Jewish identity only developed in his 20s as a writer in Paris.

Although they were at first outsiders, both Moses and Herzl were driven by injustice they saw at the expense of the Jewish people. “Both Moses and Herzl became leaders after gaining an awareness of the suffering of the Jewish people,” Dr. Friedman told Breaking Israel News. While Moses was driven to impulsive action after seeing an Egyptian hitting a Jewish slave, the anti-Semitism Herzl witnessed in the Dreifus Affairs as well as the thought of Jews being unprotected without a national home led him to action. For both men, there was a “shaking experience that made them change their course of life,” and more importantly, the course of Jewish history.

While they both were driven by injustice, the inspiration from which they were called to action differed. “Moses was pushed and motivated by God in each and every step he made and only took responsibility to lead the Jewish people after this call,” Dr. Friedman told Breaking Israel News. But on the other hand, “Herzl had internal motivation to promote what were considered crazy ideas of the time – he dreamt against all odds and opposition of all kinds; he was more willing to lead and fulfill dreams than Moses was.”

Although they were unlikely leaders, each rose to positions of authority to guide their people into the Promised Land. But before doing so, each faced resistance from their own people out of fear that a change in their situation could be a change for the worse. Fellow Jews tried to kill Moses to stop him from leading the Jewish people into new circumstances that might be worse than what they thought would be a short-term enslavement in Egypt.

According to Dr. Friedman, during Herzl’s rise to leadership, he received a two-fold opposition. First, secular European Jews believed that national independence would risk the positive treatment they received in the countries that awarded them rights. Second, some Orthodox Jews rejected taking Jewish fate into their own hands by returning to the State of Israel before the arrival of the Messiah. In fact, the First Zionist Congress was supposed to be in Munich, Germany, a center of Jewish life, but because of Orthodox opposition, it was moved to Basel, Switzerland.

Yom Kippur War: When the Nation Of Israel Was Judged and Nearly Failed
By Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz September 29, 2017 , 12:21 pm
“Even the darkness is not dark to You, And the night is as bright as the day. Darkness and light are alike to You.” Psalms 139:12 (The Israel Bible™️)

Yom Kippur War

On Yom Kippur, October 6, 1973, while Jews around the world were praying for God to redeem their souls, the still young State of Israel went through a trial of fire which it came very close to losing. For the first three days of the Yom Kippur War, Israel’s fate hung in balance while overwhelming Arab forces advanced almost unopposed into the heart of the tiny country. Only the heroic acts of a few inidividuals saved the tiny State of Israel from total annihilation.
Exactly 44 years ago, a coalition led by Syria and Egypt and supported by the former Soviet Union, launched a surprise attack on Israel. The enemy attack focused on the Golan Heights and the Sinai, territories gained in the 1967 Six Day War that gave Israel a strategic buffer zone necessary for its survival. Israel, with 400,000 troops supported by 1,700 tanks and 440 combat aircraft faced a combined force of almost one million enemy soldiers supported by 3,600 tanks and 450 combat aircraft.
32,000 Egyptian troops crossed the Suez Canal in a massive but meticulously planned operation, advancing almost unopposed into the Sinai Peninsula. They quickly overwhelmed the Bar Lev Line, a series of fortifications that Israeli military experts had claimed was impenetrable.

Massive Bird Die-Off in Bali Precursor to Messianic Volcanic Eruption as Prophesied in Ezekiel
By Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz September 27, 2017 , 11:30 am
“The fish of the sea, the birds of the sky, the beasts of the field, all creeping things that move on the ground, and every human being on earth shall quake before Me. Mountains shall be overthrown, cliffs shall topple, and every wall shall crumble to the ground.” Ezekiel 38:20 (The Israel Bible™️)
image: https://www.breakingisraelnews.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/09/Untitled-design-15.jpg

As the island of Bali waits for a catastrophic volcanic eruption expected at any moment, residents discovered a chilling scene straight from the Book of Prophets: thousands of birds died overnight, inexplicably, falling to the ground en masse. One rabbi warned that this message is a last minute hint of man’s mission on earth, a mission that is mankind is clearly failing.
Bali has been on edge for almost a month as hundreds of tremors shake the volcanic Mount Agung, the most prominent feature on this Indonesian island in the Pacific. Seismologists have warned that a major eruption is imminent, leading officials to declare a state of emergency. More than 75,000 people have been evacuated from this island paradise. In a scene reminiscent of Mount Sinai, the archetypal fiery mountain, a 7-mile exclusion zone has been set up around the volcano, preventing people from approaching.

Mount Agung hasn’t erupted for more than 50 years, but the last time it did, in 1963, almost 1,600 people were killed and hundreds more were injured.
In the midst of all the fear, another strange note of warning was heard. After a night of heavy rains, Amin Basri, a park gardener and Bali resident, was shocked to find thousands of dead sparrows covering the ground when he made his rounds through a park, usually full of singing birds, on Monday morning.

Pope Accused of Material Heresy for First Time Since Middle Ages
By Eliana Rudee September 27, 2017 , 12:30 pm
“That shall be your fringe; look at it and recall all the commandments of Hashem and observe them, so that you do not follow your heart and eyes in your lustful urge.” Numbers 15:39 (The Israel Bible™️)

In a move unprecedented since the Middle Ages, 62 clergy and lay scholars from around the world have issued a formal filial correction to Pope Francis accusing him of “propagating heresies” about “marriage, the moral life, and the reception of the sacraments.”

“Respectfully insisting” that the Pope condemns the heresies that he has directly and indirectly upheld, the letter suggests that the Catholic leader’s unorthodox views have “caused these heretical opinions to spread in the Catholic Church.” The Pope has yet to respond to the accusations.

According to the National Catholic Register, the 25-page Correctio filialis de haeresibus propagatis (A Filial Correction Concerning the Propagation of Heresies) was delivered to the pontiff at his Santa Marta residence on August 11. It accused him of propagating heresies, including allowing some divorced or remarried Catholics to receive communion.

Pope Francis is known for being more liberal than his predecessors, often embracing modernism, which is seen in Catholicism as the antithesis to definite truths, which are God-given, eternal, not to become “provisional and subject to revision.” In a trip to Lund, Sweden in 2016, the Pope came under Catholic condemnation when he visited the Lutheran Church of Sweden that is said to “accept contraception, abortion, homosexuality, and female clergy, all of which are strictly and unalterably forbidden in the Catholic Church.”

The same year, he made an official statement in Amoris laetitia (Pope Francis’ book, translated as The Joy of Love) calling for acceptance of non-traditional lifestyles and those who practice them, challenging the long-held Catholic condemnation of homosexuality. The Pope has even been compared to Protestant leader Martin Luther, to whom he has given “explicit and unprecedented praise” despite the fact that Luther’s attempts to reform the Church ended in a great schism.

The letter, dated July 16th, 2017, was signed by 62 Catholic leaders, including the superior general of the Society of St. Pius X Bishop Bernard Fellay, former president of the Vatican Bank Ettore Gotti Tedeschi, and German intellectual Martin Mosebach. This is the first filial correction addressed to a reigning Pontiff since Pope John XXII was reproved in 1333 for saying that those who died in grace do not see God face-to-face until the Last Judgment, where Catholic belief holds that those who die in the faith do indeed immediately meet with God.

The letter reads that it is with their “profound grief” but moved “by love for the Church and for the papacy, and by filial devotion toward yourself” that they must address “a correction to Your Holiness on account of the propagation of heresies affected by the apostolic exhortation Amoris laetitia and by other words, deeds and omissions of Your Holiness.”

Those who signed stress that they are not accusing the Pope of the formal sin of heresy, which is a heretic opinion expressed willfully and deliberately, knowing of its contradiction of some revealed truth. Rather, they accuse him of ‘material’ heresy, in which an opinion unknowingly contradicts the teachings of the Church, leading Catholics into false doctrines.

This is the sixth major initiative since September 2015 in which clergy and lay scholars have condemned the Pope’s liberal teachings and controversial passages in Amoris laetitia that contain “a number of statements that can be understood in a sense that is contrary to Catholic faith and morals.” These previous initiatives garnering hundreds of thousands of signatures from individuals and associations from around the world, none of which have garnered a Papal response.

Outrage as Satanic Fashion Show Desecrates 1,000-Year-Old London Church
By Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz September 27, 2017 , 5:14 pm
“Like a gold ring in the snout of a pig Is a beautiful woman bereft of sense.” Proverbs 11:22 (The Israel Bible™️)
image: https://www.breakingisraelnews.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/09/Capture-11.jpg
A fashion show in London last week left many aghast as it transformed an ancient and venerated church into a Satanically inspired display, with transvestite models dressed as the devil. Though the designer and fashionistas claim it was all in the name of art with no ill-will intended, the church has expressed its deepest regret.

Turkish designer Dilara Findikoglu’s collection was displayed in St. Andrew Holborn church in Central London as part of the Spring/Summer 2018 London Fashion Week. But rather than reflect or honor the setting, a 1,000-year old church, the show became a tribute to Satanism.

The apse of the church was decorated with a wild display of demonic imagery, including pentagrams, goatheads, inverted crosses, all-seeing eyes, and other occult symbols. The models, including at least one drag queen, were dressed as devils, with symbols used in devil worship and black magic designs drawn on their faces and bodies.

The designer is considered to be an up-and-coming star of the fashion world, with celebrities like Rihanna wearing

her latest styles. Findikoglu rejected criticism of her demonic display.

“The show I did has no religious, Illuminati, secret society meanings,” the 26-year-old told Dazed. “All the symbols I used were for positive purposes. I am a creative and I am not trying to offend anyone. I understand people can be sensitive, but I think all these hate emails and attacks I am getting from Christians show who really is wrong,” she said, adding, “If there is such a thing as right or wrong.”

Though the designer claimed that the show was not satanically inspired, the Diocese of London released a statement expressing regret for their decision to allow the fashion show to take place in the church.

“We took this booking in good faith and were not aware of the content or design before the show took place,” the statement read. “This was obviously a mistake, and the content of this show does not reflect the Christian faith of the Church. We will be looking at our booking processes going forward to ensure this does not happen again.”

Despite her claims to the contrary, religion (and anti-religion) have played a significant role in Findikoglu’s design career and personal life. Raised in a religious Muslim family, she admits to being driven by a negative perception of religion.

When asked last year by i-D, a fashion site, what the inspiration was behind her collection, she stated that it was a desire to rebel against religion, equating organized religion with the worst form of terrorism facing the world today.
“It was about a new belief system that ignores the control imposed by religions and unifies people by its laws based on simple human acts,” she answered candidly. “This was a reaction to question fundamentalist constructs that is currently terrorizing the world.”
“I use a lot of religious iconography, or occult symbols, magic symbols,” she said, adding the disclaimer, “Even if I don’t believe in them.”
This aspect of her art comes from her childhood. Satanism was a hobby for the budding artist when she was growing up.
“I’m into parapsychology and all the occult and magic stuff, so when I was reading those books, [my parents] thought I was going to be a Satanist.”

Israel Stung as "State of Palestine" Admitted Into Interpol

Despite heavy diplomatic pressure exerted in recent days by the Israel’s National Security Council, Foreign Ministry and Ministry for Strategic Affairs, the Palestinian Authority (PA) on Wednesday was officially accepted by the world policing organization Interpol, currently meeting in Beijing, China, Israel’s Channel 2 reported. 75 countries in the organization’s plenum voted for the proposal, while only 24 states opposed it.

The most serious meaning of the PA’s acceptance is that they will now be receiving sensitive information related to the war on terror. The PA will also be able to issue arrest warrants against IDF officers which would lead to their arrest abroad and extradition to the PA. For all intents and purposes, the status of the Palestinian Authority security force will be identical to that of the Israel Police.

The debate in the plenum was delayed by claims from several countries, including Israel, about irregularities in registering the results of the vote on the criteria for receiving new members into Interpol. Eventually the vote was held, and the PA won the needed majority and then some.

PA Foreign Minister Riyad al-Maliki celebrated the vote as a “victory” and vowed that the “State of Palestine” would continue to seek membership in world bodies.

“The State of Palestine will continue to struggle to raise the status and role of Palestine at the international level and defend the rights of our people in security and freedom by all diplomatic and legal means available and including joining the relevant international institutions,” he said.

Human rights groups have argued against letting China host the annual gathering of the global police force, citing Beijing’s misuse of Interpol’s “red notice” arrest warrant system to arrest fugitive ex-officials and business people wanted for corruption, as well as political dissidents such as German-based activist Dolkun Isa.

In End of Days, Everyone Will Speak Hebrew
By Maayan Jaffe-Hoffman September 28, 2017 , 7:30 am

“Everyone on earth had the same language and the same words.” Genesis 11:1 (The Israel Bible™️)

(Breaking Israel News/Shutterstock)
In the End of Days, all the nations of the world will study Hebrew to call out the name of God together in His holy language, explained Rabbi Tuly Weisz, founder of the Yeshiva for the Nations.

Speaking to Breaking Israel News, Rabbi Weisz said that the prophet Zephaniah describes how all the nations of the world will have “purity of speech” in the End of Days:

For then I will make the peoples pure of speech, so that they all invoke Hashem by name and serve Him with one accord. Zephaniah 3:9

Rabbi Weisz said Jewish tradition has always maintained that the pure language that Zephaniah promises is the language of Hebrew.

Today, students of all backgrounds have a chance to learn Hebrew in a new Yeshiva for the Nations course, “Introduction to the Hebrew Alphabet and Hebrew Reading.” Yeshiva for the Nations is a Jewish school for religious studies, designed for non-Jews. Registrants dip into the deep wells of Jewish knowledge by engaging with Jewish texts through the eyes of Jewish rabbis and teachers.
Rabbi Weisz said the language of creation was Hebrew and that God spoke Hebrew to the first people, Adam and Eve. He believes the whole world spoke Hebrew until right after Noah’s flood, at which time the people of Babel joined forces to build an impressive tower with evil intentions: to display the achievements of man without acknowledging the Creator above.
Come, let us build us a city, and a tower with its top in the sky, to make a name for ourselves; else we shall be scattered all over the world. Genesis 11:4
The punishment for the people’s sin of rebellion and failure to acknowledge God as creator was to be scattered across the earth, their language diversified so they could no longer communicate as one, explained Rabbi Weisz.
However, despite their dispersion, the Jews worked to maintain some use of the Hebrew language. With the founding of the state of Israel in 1948 and the ingathering of the exiles, the Jewish people miraculously revived Hebrew and made it, once again, their national language.
“Hebrew is one of the most beautiful languages,” said Sharon Niv, who teaches the Yeshiva for the Nations Hebrew course. She said that while in English there are more words than in Hebrew, the Hebrew language has greater depth.

World's Oldest Beehives, Found in Israel, Promise Biblically Sweet New Year [PHOTOS]
By Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz September 26, 2017 , 1:30 pm
“My son, eat honey, for it is good; Let its sweet drops be on your palate.” Proverbs 24:13 (The Israel Bible™️)

An Israeli archaeologist made a remarkable and rare discovery to ensure that all of Israel has a year as sweet as honey, while helping understand the Bible just a little bit better.
Hebrew University professor Amihai Mazar was exploring an archaeological dig at a site in the Jordan Valley called Tel Rehov when he found evidence of beekeeping 3,000 years ago, the oldest evidence of this industry ever discovered.

“Beekeeping is not described in the Bible and Israel is not especially suited for beekeeping, no more or less than any other place with flowers,” Professor Mazar said. “But even today, if you go out to the fields in that region, there are hives in the field.”
Biblical scholars believe that when the Bible mentions honey, it is usually referring to honey made from dates. Professor Mazar pointed to his discovery as evidence that the Bible could also be referring to honey from bees.

Just last week, Jews around the world dipped apples in honey in hopes of a blessedly sweet New Year. This find may indicate that the link between Jews and honey is more ancient than previously thought.
The archaeologists did not expect to find beehives while digging, but there was no other explanation for the discovery.
“We found a long row of clay cylinders, each one of them approximately two and a half feet long and about one foot in diameter,” Professor Mazar told Breaking Israel News. The clay pots, made of unbaked clay mixed with straw, were piled three high.
At least 180 hives were found. (Courtesy Amihai Mazar)
The researchers eventually concluded they had discovered the oldest beehives in the world. Sealed with removable lids at one end, the other end of the cylinder had a small hole for the bees to enter. The discovery was unprecedented, and no other ancient hives have been found in Israel.
“This is the only archaeological dig in Israel at which beehives have been found,” Dr. Mazar said. “It was also unusual since normally, beehives are kept outside of the city. We were surprised when we found the hives where they were – inside a large and thriving city.”

Many archaeologists believe the site is where the Prophet Elisha lived at approximately the same time bees were buzzing around.
“Though it was not mentioned in the Bible, this was a very large and important city in the time of King Achav and Elijah the prophet,” Professor Mazar said. He estimated that at the time, the city was home to approximately 2,500 people.
Researchers believe there were at least 180 hives housing more than a million bees, with each hive producing about 11 pounds of honey each year.
The archaeologists also found remains of actual bees, identifying the breed as being native to Turkey.

“These are the most ancient bees ever found in the world,” Professor Mazar said. “They did not arrive in Israel by themselves, so there had to be thriving trade between Israel and Turkey at the time.”

Israel’s Soldiers Doing God’s Work in Post-Quake Mexico

“Many of those that sleep in the dust of the earth will awake, some to eternal life.” Daniel 12:2 (The Israel Bible™️

Rather than celebrating the Jewish New Year with the nation of Israel last week, a 71-person delegation of Israeli soldiers flew to Mexico to provide urgently needed disaster relief after a 7.1 magnitude earthquake.
The IDF delegation, sent by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu following a request for aid from the Mexican authorities, was made up of soldiers and reservists from three army teams: search and rescue, engineers, and medical personnel.
“Yahad-United for Israel’s Soldiers was fortunate to have a Yahad-Mexico branch,” said Brigadier General Yehiel Gozal, CEO of Yahad-United for Israel’s Soldiers, the only organization sanctioned by the Israeli government and Ministry of Defense to provide soldier welfare.
He told Breaking Israel News, “We immediately set into motion our teams to ensure that the soldiers have all they need to perform their duties safely and would have the food, housing and resources that they need, including for the High Holidays.”
IDF search and rescue teams have been going house to house searching for victims, both alive and dead. IDF engineers are tasked with checking the security of affected buildings and letting people know if they may return to their homes, offices and schools. IDF medical teams are on call should extra staff be required to treat the wounded and shell-shocked.
“The Israeli army is known for their outstanding and efficient pop-up field hospitals, which have given aid following natural disasters in Turkey, Nepal, Haiti, Japan, the Philippines and even Syrian refugees who make it to Israel’s border,” continued Gozal. “However, thus far, Mexico has not requested field hospitals, though part of Yahad’s budget ensures that medical and other supplies are well stocked and ready to go worldwide should the need arise.”
During natural disasters worldwide, Yahad has funded such items as incubators, especially since there tends to be an increase in births during crises, respirators, rescue gear for IDF teams, clothing, hygiene packages, food, housing, toys for children and more.
Thus far, the death toll from Mexico’s earthquake is at least 320. As finding survivors following an earthquake in building ruins declines sharply after three days, the IDF delegation received orders to fly out of Israel just before the Jewish New Year began.

In Defiance of US, Iran Tests Balistic Missile Capable of Striking Israel With Nukes
By Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz September 23, 2017 , 11:26 pm
“And I will visit upon the world their evil, and upon the wicked their iniquity; and I will cause the arrogancy of the proud to cease, and will lay low the haughtiness of the tyrants.” Isaiah 13:11 (The Israel Bible™️)

Photo: Shutterstock.com
Iran’s provacative Friday test-firing of a new ballistic missile capable of striking Israel with nuclear warheads threatens the free world, Israeli Defense Ministor Avigdor Liberman said on Saturday.

“This Iranian missile launch is an act of provocation and defiance against the United States and its allies, as well as an attempt to test them,” Liberman said. He added that it was “also further proof of Iranian aspirations to become a world power that threatens not only the Middle East, but all the countries of the free world.”

Hours after displaying their newest intercontinental ballistic missile in a Tehran military parade on Friday, Iran test-fired the new Khorramshahr missile capable of carrying multiple warheads a distance of 1,250 miles. This puts Israel, Saudi Arabia, India, and much of Eastern Europe within striking distance of Iran.

The test violated Iran’s agreements with the UN as expressed in the UN resolution 2231 which forbids Iran from testing missiles capable of carrying nuclear warheads. Iran has violated these agreements several times in the past resulting in U.S. economic sanctions against companies involved in the Iranian missile program. Iran denies its missile development breaches the resolution and says its missiles are for defensive purposes only and are not designed to carry nuclear weapons.

“We will promote our defensive and military power as much as we deem necessary,” Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said at the parade, according to Press TV. “We seek no one’s permission to defend our land. Whether you like it or not we are going to help Syria, Yemen, and Palestine, and we will strengthen our missiles.”

On October 15, U.S. President Donald Trump will have to decide if Iran is complying with the agreement put in place by former President Barack Obama called the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action concerning the Iranian nuclear program. If he does not certify Iranian compliance, Congress will have 60 days to decide whether to reimpose sanctions waived under the deal.

Trump told the UN General Assembly on Tuesday that Iran was building its missile capability and accused it of exporting violence to Yemen, Syria and other parts of the Middle East, saying it was a “rogue state whose chief exports are violence, bloodshed, and chaos.”

Britain, France, Germany, China, Russia and the European Union also signed on the nuclear deal and their leaders have all announced publicly that they want the agreement with Iran to continue without sanctions. The International Atomic Energy Agency, the UN watchdog agency responsible for verifying compliance, has repeatedly confirmed Tehran is meeting its commitments.
On Sunday, Priime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu convened a special meeting of his security cabinet to discuss Iran’s missile test.

Lebanese President Won’t Disarm Hezbollah; “It Only Fights Israel”
By Tazpit Press Service September 24, 2017 , 11:30 am
“The face of Hashem is set against evildoers, to erase their names from the earth.” Psalms 34:17 (The Israel Bible™️)

Lebanese President Michel Aoun will not demand that Hezbollah disarm itself, as was requested of other Lebanese militias, Aoun told the French newspaper Le Figaro.

Aoun claimed that Hezbollah does not get involved in internal Lebanese politics, but rather directs its efforts against Israel.

“Hezbollah are not using their weapons in internal politics. They only ensure our resistance against the State of Israel, which continues to occupy part of our territory and which refuses to implement UN resolutions regarding the Palestinians’ right of return”

Aoun, a Maronite Christian, founded the Lebanese Free Patriotic Movement in 2005 and has been a political ally of Hezbollah since 2006. Following his 2016 election, he vowed to “liberate the rest of our land from the Israeli occupation.”

In Aoun’s view, Hezbollah’s presence in southern Lebanon is necessary to balance Israel’s heavy military presence in the region.

“You cannot disarm Hezbollah at the same time that Israel fails to respect UN Security Council resolutions. Israel should have the right to wage war whenever it wants at the same time that others are deprived of the right to have weapons to defend themselves? No, it’s not possible,” he said.

Interestingly, Lebanon has continually failed to respect its own UN body, the United Nations Interim Force in Lebanon (UNIFIL), by allowing Hezbollah to brazenly violate its terms and build up weapons stores.

Commenting on Hezbollah’s role in instigating the 2006 war with Israel, Aoun defended Hizbollah’s cross-border attack and abduction of three IDF soldiers and attributed the escalation to Israel’s “overreaction”.

“It’s a classic border incident which escalated due to an Israeli overreaction,” Aoun said. “You’ll say that Hezbollah violated territory that day – it’s possible. But these types of incidents happen very frequently. A few days ago, Israeli fighter jets broke the sound barrier above [Lebanese territory], violating our airspace and shattering glass everywhere.”

Responding to Aoun’s declaration of support for Hezbollah, Israeli Education Minister Naftali Bennet told the Israel Broadcast Corporation (Kan) that in the event of a clash, Israel would not differentiate between Hezbollah and Lebanese actions.

“If Hezbollah opens fire on the Israeli Home Front, we will regard this as a declaration of war by the state of Lebanon. We’re no longer going to play this ‘needle in a haystack’ game,” Bennett said.
In July, when President Donald Trump met with Lebanese Prime Minister Saad al-Hariri, the American leader said that Hezbollah was a “menace” to Lebanon and the region.

Congress Fights Back Against UN’s Anti-Israel Blacklist With ‘Anti-Boycott Act’
By Eliana Rudee September 25, 2017 , 1:30 pm
“I will bless those who bless you And curse him that curses you; And all the families of the earth Shall bless themselves by you.” Genesis 12:3 (The Israel Bible™️)
Composite image: The Capitol building in Washington DC with the Israeli flag. (Breaking Israel News/Kevin McCoy/ Wiki Commons)
In response to United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) efforts to undermine Israel’s legitimacy through their Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) Act of 2017, the U.S. Congress and Senate have introduced a bipartisan bill, the “Israel Anti-Boycott Act,” that would protect U.S. companies targeted by the international boycotts and punish those who comply with them.
Earlier this March, the UNHRC voted in favor (32 nations in favor and 15 abstentions) of the BDS Act of 2017, which entails creating a “blacklist” of companies enabling or benefitting from the growth of Israeli settlements. Blacklisted companies under the BDS Act of 2017, the full list of which will be published this December, include major American corporations like Coca-Cola, Teva Pharmaceuticals, Airbnb, and TripAdvisor.

The UN blacklist treads in the footsteps of the broader BDS movement, which was established in 2005 in an attempt to economically undermine Israel’s sovereignty. The stated goal of the BDS movement, according to its founders, is to “end international support for Israel’s oppression of Palestinians and pressure Israel to comply with international law.”

In response to the UN’s blacklist, Representative Peter J. Roskam (R-IL) and Senators Benjamin L. Cardin (D-MD) and Marco
Rubio (R-FL) introduced the Israel Anti-Boycott Act (H.R. 1697 and S.720). The US Act has seen overwhelming support, with 49 senators and 253 House members co-sponsoring it to date. The bill was initiated in the context of a strong U.S.-Israel alliance celebrating the U.S. government’s proud history of protecting the Jewish State from economic warfare.

Jews Forbidden From Carrying Sukkot 'Four Species' on Temple Mount
By JNI Media September 25, 2017 , 9:30 am
“On the first day you shall take the product of hadar trees, branches of palm trees, boughs of leafy trees, and willows of the brook, and you shall rejoice before Hashem your God seven days.” Leviticus 25:40 (The Israel Bible™️)

Chief Superintendent Michael Frankenburg, the legal advisor of the Jerusalem District Police, has recently decreed that Jews carrying the “four species” would be banned from the Temple Mount during the holiday of Sukkot, Kipa reported.

The decree was announced in response to a request by a number of Jews who plan to ascend to the Temple Mount during the intermediate days of Sukkot – Rabbi Yisrael Ariel, Attorney Aviad Visoli, activist Michael Puah, Yochai Sarel and Maayan Magen.

In his response, Frankenborg wrote that he was authorized by Jerusalem Police District Commander, Yoram Halevi to announce that “in the framework of the rules of the Temple Mount, in accordance with the status quo in the area, ritual activity with overt external features, including the four species, is forbidden.”

“In view of the above, we are forced to respond to your demand in the negative,” the Police legal advisor concluded.

Michael Puah, chairman of B’Tsalmo, said in response: “It is regrettable that the legal advisor of the Jerusalem District justifies a discriminatory policy. His attempt to ignore the fact that this is a prohibition against worshiping Jews while Muslims are allowed the full freedom of worship will lead us to write a letter asking him to clarify the matter.”
Back in 2014, Puah was videotaped shaking his four species in the Temple Mount compound, when a Waqf agent alerted a policeman who told him to halt while he consulted his superiors. Puah then instructed his son to shake his lulav, and as a result was detained for questioning and released.

WATCH: Christian Zionist Leader Calls for Unequivocal Rejection of Replacement Theology, Missionizing Jews
By Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz September 25, 2017 , 4:00 pm
0Share 0Email 0Share
“Our mouths shall be filled with laughter, our tongues, with songs of joy. Then shall they say among the nations, “Hashem has done great things for them!” Psalms 126:2 (The Israel Bible™️)
Tommy Waller, founder of Hayovel, has made a gruondbreaking statement about Christian-Jewish relations. (Screenshot)
In a watershed video released on Monday, Christian Zionist leader Tommy Waller made a groundbreaking proclamation calling for an unequivocal end to centuries of replacement theology and Christian missionizing.
The announcement, released on Monday just prior to the 500th anniversary of Martin Luther’s Ninety-Five Theses, is intended to catalyze the theological changes necessary to allow Christians and Jews to, as one prominent rabbi put it, be “partners in the Great Redemption”.
“Any agreement with replacement theology is disagreement with God, who identifies himself as the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob – the God of Israel,” Waller states firmly in the video, which is captioned in Hebrew.

HaYovel | Tommy Waller to Fellow Christians: "Stop Stealing Jewish Identity"

Replacement theology is a Christian doctrine which holds that Christians “replaced” Jews in the Biblical covenant with God. Waller’s declaration comes a month before Reformation Day, commemorating when Christian reformer Martin Luther nailed his Ninety-Five Theses on the door of the Castle Church in Wittenberg, Germany on October 31, 1517.

Germany Election Results Ushering in Far-Right Party “Great Warning Sign” for Jews

“When the righteous exult there is great glory, But when the wicked rise up men make themselves scarce.” Proverbs 28:12 (The Israel Bible™️)

Though Angela Merkel’s conservative party retained its control over German parliament in Sunday’s elections, the unprecedented success of the far-right party Alternative for Germany (AfD) has raised major fears and anxieties among Jewish groups and Germans alike.
AfD, which campaigned on a nationalist platform many saw as anti-Semitic and xenophobic, became the third-largest party in the Bundestag, German parliament, winning 13 percent of the vote. Merkel’s party, in contrast, took only 33 percent of the vote, the lowest margin by which the German chancellor has won in four elections.

AfD’s success represent the first time since World War II that an openly nationalist party will join the government. It is a stunning victory for a party formed only four years ago.
Critics and protesters say the hard-right party is anti-Semitic, neo-Nazi, and racist, and that in light of Germany’s history, the victory is a tragedy for the country.
“They are like the Nazis under Hitler,” a German citizen who lived through the Holocaust told the BBC. “I was born in 1939. I’m a war child. I grew up in the ruins and now we get this again. They are criminals.”

Latest Iran Missiles Threaten Free World, Warns Israel Defense Minister

Iran’s provacative Friday test-firing of a new ballistic missile capable of striking Israel with nuclear warheads threatens the free world, Israeli Defense Ministor Avigdor Liberman said on Saturday.

“This Iranian missile launch is an act of provocation and defiance against the United States and its allies, as well as an attempt to test them,” Liberman said. He added that it was “also further proof of Iranian aspirations to become a world power that threatens not only the Middle East, but all the countries of the free world.”

Hours after displaying their newest intercontinental ballistic missile in a Tehran military parade on Friday, Iran test-fired the new Khorramshahr missile capable of carrying multiple warheads a distance of 1,250 miles. This puts Israel, Saudi Arabia, India, and much of Eastern Europe within striking distance of Iran.

150 Years After Mark Twain’s Visit to Palestine, ‘Innocents Abroad’ Deemed Prophetic
By Eliana Rudee September 24, 2017 , 11:30 am
“This whole land shall be a desolate ruin. And those nations shall serve the king of Babylon seventy years.” Jeremiah 25:11 (The Israel Bible™️)

When Mark Twain visited Palestine in 1867, the land was empty and desolate. (Old City of Jerusalem in the 19th century)
On his landmark visit to Israel 150 years ago, American literary giant Mark Twain witnessed what he did not then know was the start of the prophetic return of the Jewish people to the land. The renowned travel book that became the foundation for his success, Innocents Abroad, painted a picture of a holy land whose desolation would serve as the beginning point of prophecy brought to life.

In June of 1867, Mark Twain embarked on a journey to Europe and Ottoman Palestine, now Israel. Unimpressed, he described the Holy Land as “unpicturesque” and “unsightly”, even “desolate”. From September 24-25, 1867, Twain stayed at the Mediterranean Hotel, now called the Wittenberg House, in the “Old Jewish Quarter” (now the Muslim Quarter of the Old City). At the time, Jews in the Old City had just become a majority, but the margins were slim.

Since then, the Old City, Jerusalem, and Israel has begun a redemption process in which in addition to the land giving fruit, there is a revival of Jewish life, an ingathering of exiles, and Jewish sovereignty in the land. Indeed, Twain’s book, which was published 30 years before the first World Zionist Congress, has often been used to support the Zionist idea that Palestine was a “land without a people for a people without a land.”

“The Innocents Abroad”, 1869
According to Daniel Luria, the Executive Director of Ateret Cohanim, an organization that works to reestablish Jewish roots in the Old City of Jerusalem, when Twain visited, the Old City was a “backwater town for the Ottomans, not a glorious city like it is today.” But now, he told Breaking Israel News, “We are living in the realization of the prophecies that Twain witnessed. Only when the Jewish people returned to the land was it built up. Am Yisrael (the Jewish people) returned and finally we see the true unfolding of the redemption process.”

Twain’s descriptions in Innocents Abroad gave evidence to Jeremiah’s prophecy of destruction of the Holy Land, followed by an end to desolation. Jeremiah prophesied in 25:11 and in the Book of Lamentations that “This whole land shall be a desolate ruin.” Echoing the Biblical words, Twain wrote, “Palestine sits in sackcloth and ashes…. desolate and unlovely.”

Of the Jezreel valley (in Israel’s lower Galilee region), Twain wrote, “Stirring scenes […] occur in the valley no more. There is not a solitary village throughout its whole extent-not for thirty miles in either direction. There are two or three small clusters of Bedouin tents, but not a single permanent habitation. One may ride ten miles hereabouts and not see ten human beings.”

He described the Galilee as “the sort of solitude to make one dreary […] Come to Galilee for that […] these unpeopled deserts, these rusty mounds of barrenness, that never, never do shake the glare from their harsh outlines, and fade and faint into vague perspective; that melancholy ruin of Capernaum: this stupid village of Tiberias, slumbering under its six funereal palms […] We reached Tabor safely […] We never saw a human being on the whole route.”

“It’s an interesting reflection to see how far we’ve come, with the Hula Valley, Jerusalem, and the sites and seas he visited,” said Yoni Shapira, founder of Landmark Heritage Services and lecturer on the Holy Land in the 19th century through the eyes of Mark Twain. “Twain would not have recognized the land if he saw it today.”

Twain’s descendant, Tommy Waller, is a witness to the transformation that the Holy Land has seen since Twain’s visit 150 years ago, and has actually become part of its redemption. Twain was Waller’s great-great-grandmother’s nephew, and “It is interesting,” noted Waller to Breaking Israel News, “that a cousin of his would come here to Israel and say the opposite that he said 150 years ago. But they say there are no coincidences in Israel.”

Waller, the founder of an organization called HaYovel which brings Christian volunteers to work on the land and strengthen independent farmers in Israel, only understood the prophetic nature of his ancestor’s, and then his, time in Israel when he first began to harvest grapes in Israel. In Jeremiah 33:11, it is prophesied that the land would later flourish: “For I will restore the fortunes of the land as of old—said Hashem.”

Waller echoed this prophecy, saying, “Where he saw desolation, I’m seeing restoration. Where he saw rocks, I’m seeing vineyards.

“Our volunteers talk about how beautiful the land is. Not about desolation, but communities and farming land – the opposite of what it once was. It’s a prophetic place,” he said.

Waller argues that although Twain was “making fun of the land,” he essentially strengthened the prophetic truth of what would happen in the future as the Jewish people began to return. “He wasn’t trying to be an advocate of Israel, we was trying to write a good article. But as it turns out, he’s an Israel advocate whether he would like it or not,” said Waller.

An illustration of Jerusalem found in “Innocents Abroad”.
During his travels in Jerusalem, Twain purchased a Bible as a keepsake and inscribed it in English and Hebrew for his mother. The Bible, made of “Balsam-wood from the Jordan,” “oak from Abraham’s tree at Hebron,” and “olive-wood from the Mount of Olives”, was surprising for an adamantly secular writer who described the land so unemotionally, called religious passions “emotions of the nursery,” and questioned the link between “The Land” and “The Book.”

Shapira explained that the norm of the day was for Westerners to look at Jerusalem as an exotic place through orientalism and a Biblical lens. But Twain saw Jerusalem as it was, “A place of desolation, over population, disease, swamps, and animals,” looking past the romanticism that many artists and travelers portrayed.

Twain, who was a freemason, was cynical about organized religion and critiqued “American vandals abroad” who brought back merchandised items and called them part of reality, Shapira told Breaking Israel News. Nevertheless, Twain respected his mother’s devout Christian approach and knew that she would appreciate a Bible from Jerusalem with “Yerushalayim” – “Jerusalem” – written on it in Hebrew.

Rabbi Tuly Weisz of Breaking Israel News went so far as to suggest that Twain’s eventual fame in the American canon was a result of his unconscious role in the fulfillment of prophecy.

“He wasn’t the father of American literature until this visit, when he wrote the postscript to Jeremiah,” noted Rabbi Weisz. “As the last one to report on the destruction chronicled by Jeremiah, God used Mark Twain to be a prophet.” Rabbi Weisz believes the current flourishing of the Land of Israel is undoubtedly part of Jeremiah’s prophecy that the land will be restored.

Mexico Hit By Second Devastating Earthquake as Puerto Rico Prepares for Category 5 Killer Hurricane
By Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz September 20, 2017 , 12:11 pm
” I form light and create darkness, I make weal and create woe— I Hashem do all these things.” Isaiah 45:7 (The Israel Bible™)

Nature is still raging as a second major earthquake shakes Mexico and yet another Category 5 hurricane is about to hit Puerto Rico. While Mexican rescue teams sift through the rubble and mourn the hundreds dead, residents of Puerto Rico have been told, “Evacuate or die.”

Less than two weeks after getting hit by a major earthquake, leaving 90 dead, the earth shook yet again in Mexico. At around 1PM local time on Tuesday, a 7.1 magnitude earthquake hit Mexico. The government has confirmed that at least 216 people are dead, but the death toll is expected to rise as rescue workers clear the rubble. The US Geological Survey predicted up to 1,000 fatalities will come from the earthquake, as well as an economic impact of between $1-10 billion.

Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto said more than 20 children and two adults had died and 30 were missing after a school collapsed. 15 people were reportedly killed in Atzitzihuacan when a church on the slopes of a volcano – which appeared to have a small eruption following the earthquake – collapsed during a mass.

The epicenter of the latest quake was near Atencingo in Puebla state, about 75 miles from Mexico City. At least 40 buildings collapsed in Mexico City, the nation’s capital. About two million people in the capital were left without electricity and phone lines were down in many areas. Officials warned residents not to smoke on the streets as gas mains could have been ruptured.

Many world leaders responded to the Mexican disaster and U.S. President Donald Trump tweeted, “God bless the people of Mexico City. We are with you and will be there for you.”

God bless the people of Mexico City. We are with you and will be there for you.

— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 19, 2017

The quake hit just two hours after a nation-wide disaster drill. Each year on September 19, cities across Mexico stage emergency disaster simulations and evacuations. The drill falls on the anniversary of an 8.0-magnitude earthquake that hit Mexico City in 1985, killing nearly 10,000 people.

While Mexico struggles to recover, Puerto Rico braced for Hurricane Maria. Meteorologists say it is the first Category 5 hurricane to make landfall on the island in 80 years and may be the most powerful storm to ever hit the island. Maria could bring up to 2 feet of rain and a storm surge of up to 9 feet to Puerto Rico, sparking flooding and mudslides, CNN Meteorologist Allison Chinchar said.

Governor Ricardo Rosselló declared a state of emergency and urged people to evacuate.

“There’s still time … but people need to move fast,” Ricardo Rosselló told CNN’s Anderson Cooper in an interview on Tuesday, calling the storm the “worst hurricane in modern history in Puerto Rico.”

Héctor Pesquera, Puerto Rico’s commissioner of public safety, was even more grim.

“You have to evacuate — otherwise, you are going to die,” he said, according to Telemundo, NBC’s Spanish-language network. “I do not know how to make this any clearer.”

Maria has already hit Dominica and killed at least one person in Guadeloupe. Puerto Rico was spared last Tuesday when Hurricane Irma swerved north. Irma killed at least 70 people as it raged through the Caribbean and the Southeastern United States earlier this month.

5777 Population Stats Prove Jewish People Flourishing in Land, Exiles Returning
By Eliana Rudee September 19, 2017 , 1:30 pm
“I will bestow My blessing upon you and make your descendants as numerous as the stars of heaven and the sands on the seashore; and your descendants shall seize the gates of their foes.” Genesis 22:17 (The Israel Bible™)
image: https://www.breakingisraelnews.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/02/baby-israeli-flag-.jpg
On Monday, The Central Bureau of Statistics published data on the population of Israel just ahead of Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year, shining a light on the fulfillment of several Biblical prophesies anticipating the return and flourishing of the Jewish people in Israel.
Israel’s population stands at 8.743 million on the eve of Rosh Hashanah. Jews number over 6.5 million, representing 74.6 percent of Israel’s population, a slight decrease compared to last year. Arabs numbered over 1.8 million of the Israeli population, representing 20.9 percent of Israel’s population, a 3 percent increase over the past year.
The statistics showed a population increase similar to previous years of 1.8 percent and a steady maintenance of Israel’s high immigration and fertility rates, the latter ranking as the highest in Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) countries.
According to end-time scholar Rabbi Pinchas Winston, this decade’s rise in Israel’s Jewish birthrate is indicative of fulfillment of God’s promise to Abraham of his prophesied descendents.
Bestow My blessing upon you and make your descendants as numerous as the stars of heaven and the sands on the seashore; and your descendants shall seize the gates of their foes. Genesis 22:17
Israel’s high birth rates juxtapose with declining global fertility rates. The global birthrate in the 1950s was 3.6 while last year, the global birthrate was just 1.85, showing a sharp decrease. In contrast, Israel’s birth rate was 3.11, the highest fertility rate in Western developed economies of the OECD. The death rate was four times less the birth rate, with 43,000 deaths in the past year.

Top 5 Revealed Biblical Prophecies Fulfilled in 5777
By Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz September 18, 2017 , 11:30 am
“Every word of Hashem is pure, A shield to those who take refuge in Him.” Proverbs 30:5 (The Israel Bible™)

(Breaking Israel News)
As Rosh Hashana, the Jewish New Year, approaches this week, it is customary to look back and reflect on the previous year. Between Sunday and Wednesday, Breaking Israel News will present a series of Top Lists recalling some of the most significant Biblical and Israel stories of 5777. On Sunday, we look back on 5777’s biggest stories of redemption: the year’s top 10 articles demonstrating that the Messiah is on his way. On Monday, we will revisit the top 5 Biblical prophecies fulfilled in Israel and around the world this year. On Wednesday, the series will conclude with the year’s top 5 stories of how the Bible comes to life in spectacular images and events worldwide.

In 5777, Biblical and Jewish prophecies manifested before our eyes in real and unmistakeable news events. A Biblically-based retrospective reveals that the words of the Torah are as relevant today as they were at Sinai, reappearing in current events that speak in a prophetic fashion.

1. Fulfilling Ezekiel’s Prophecy, Jacob’s Biblical Sheep Arrive in the Promised Land

In December, after a 2,000-year absence, the distinctively speckled and four-horned Jacob’s Sheep finally returned to the grazing lands of their original owners: the Biblical patriarchs, as the prophet Ezekiel foretold in 34:11 when he predicted that God’s flocks would be “gathered from the countries” and returned to Israel. An intrepid young couple overcame bureaucratic entanglements and obstacles to bring this flock of 119 sheep “on the wings of eagles” from Canada to Israel. Once again, the distinctive bleating of the sheep that accompanied Jacob when he left Laban is being heard in the hills of Israel.
