Middle East Update July 2014
Genesis 12:3 – “And I will bless them that bless you, and curse him that curses you.”
Once again, Barky Insane O’Bummer has thrown Israel under the bus. The following is a few quotes taken from Caroline Glick’s post of Tuesday, July 29th, titled Israel, Hamas and Obama’s foreign policy. The full text can be viewed at: Israel-hamas-obama-real-foreign-policy.
“When US President Barack Obama phoned Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu on Sunday night, in the middle of a security cabinet meeting, he ended any remaining doubt regarding his policy toward Israel and Hamas. Obama called Netanyahu while the premier was conferring with his senior ministers about how to proceed in Gaza.”
“ . . the telephone rang. And Obama told Netanyahu that Israel must lose. He wants an unconditional “humanitarian” cease-fire that will lead to a permanent one. And he wants it now.”
“ . . And by the way, the eventual terms of that cease-fire must include opening Hamas-controlled Gaza’s borders with Egypt and Israel and ending Israel’s maritime blockade of the Gaza coast. That is, the cease-fire must allow Hamas to rebuild its arsenal of death and destruction quickly, with US political and financial support.”
The Towns Along The Coast
Zechariah 12:2-3 – “Behold, I am going to make Jerusalem a cup that causes reeling to all the peoples around; and when the siege is against Jerusalem, it will also be against Judah. It will come about in that day that I will make Jerusalem a heavy stone for all the peoples; all who lift it will be severely injured.”
Zephaniah 2:4-6 – “Woe unto the inhabitants of the sea coast, the nation of the Cherethites; For Gaza shall be forsaken, and Ashkelon a desolation: Ashdod and Ekron shall be rooted up.! O Canaan, the land of the Philistines, the coast shall be given to Judah for their shepherds and flocks . . .”
Cherethites [כְּרֵתִי Kĕrethim H3774] is synonym for the Philistines, or those living in the area of Gaza. Gesenius proposed that it should be rendered: executioners and runners, what today we would call terrorists.
Ashkelon [אַשְׁקְלוֹן ‘Ashqĕlown H831] is a coastal city in Southern Israel along the coast of the Mediterranean Sea. It is about thirty-one miles south of Tel Aviv. Tel Aviv is approximately how far north the rockets have been landing that are being fired from Gaza, much farther north than was the case just one year ago.
Ashdod [אַשְׁדּוֹד ‘Ashdowd H795] is the fifth-largest city in Israel, located just 12 miles north of Ashkelon. The city of Ekron [עֶקְרוֹן `Eqrown H6138] was where the Ark of the Covenant was carried by the Philistines carried before they sent it back to Israel (1 Samuel 5:10 and 1 Samuel 6:1-8). Joshua tells us it was the northern border city of the Philistines and one of the five governmental centers of their leaders.
The terrorism industry in The Middle East is in full force. Southern Israel, including in and around Jerusalem, is being bombarded with dozens of rockets out of Gaza daily, forcing Israeli citizens to run to bomb shelters several times every day. Twenty Israeli cities have been subjected to rocket attack by the over three hundred rockets Hamas shot into Israel – 150 in one night alone. It is estimated that up to one-half of all Israeli’s are sheltering due to the extent of the bombings.
The Palestinians do not want peace with the Israelis and their continued bombing demonstrates this with the steady barrage of rocket fire. So much for the Oslo accords and the farce which is land for peace. Israel continues to escalate the attacks against Hamas. It is essentially at war with an enemy who seeks to destroy it. Netanyahu has declared that Israel “can not tolerate the bombing of its citizens” and he will do whatever is necessary to stop these attacks. He has also stated, correctly, that “there can be no peace with Hamas.”
The terrorism industry in The Middle East is in full force. The Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) is now occupying large portions of Iraq. News of war crimes, beheadings, torture and mass executions are the norm for ISIS. ISIS rebels are exceedingly barbaric and are reported to have beheaded, tortured, and executed hundreds while setting up Sharia Law as they go. Most of those killed are other Muslims – predominantly Sunnis killing Shiites. ISIS has put the entire Middle East on notice that a Caliphate within Iraq, with intentions to include Syria, Jordan and Saudi Arabia as well, is in the making.
Bashar Al Assad’s systematic torture and killing of his citizens is now being compared to the that of Hitler. Syria continues its bloody civil war with the body count rising daily and with no end in sight. There is also an Israeli Defense Force (IDF) buildup on the northern Israel borders with Syria and Lebanon with an occasional rocket coming across the border into Israel. The entire region is erupting as Syrian rebels now control the Golan Heights. Assad has previously threatened to destroy Israel and the Mullahs of Iran, who are backing ISIS, also want Israel destroyed.
In February, OBAD bozo John Kerry tried blackmailing and bullying Israel claiming that for, “Israel there is an increasing de-legitimization campaign that has been building up. People are very sensitive to it, there is talk of boycott and other kinds of things. Are we all going to be better with all of that?” Kerry went on to predict a high risk of increased boycotts and a higher likelihood of international isolation for Israel if peace talks broke down.
On April 28, Holocaust Memorial day, John Kerry announced, “If there’s no two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict soon, Israel risks becoming ‘“an apartheid state’.” “One senator has called for Kerry’s removal from office for effectively cursing Israel In a speech on the floor of the U.S. House of Representatives, Rep. Louie Gohmert, R-Texas, blasted Secretary of State John Kerry for saying that Jewish people of Israel are risking guilt for the crime of apartheid by not agreeing to Kerry’s two-state solution”, according to World Net Daily.
An event began on April 30, 2014 called the Abu Dhabi International Book Fair. The U.S. State Department served as a cultural partner, despite knowing that the event would promote many anti-Semitic books in both English and Arabic. Three of the titles being promoted were The International Jew, Mein Kampf, and The Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion. All three of these books are frequently cited as having fueled anti-Semitism in 20th Century Europe, paved the way for The Holocaust, and are quite popular today in the Middle East.
It is extremely disturbing that the U.S. State Department, under John Kerry, would lend an air of legitimacy to an event at which such books are being promoted. But it is a sign of the times in which we’re living.
Tornadoes hit the US mid-states big time at the same time as OBAD Kerry’s latest remarks and his State Department partnering with the book fair. U.S. tornadoes killed at least thirty four and damage in our South was massive on day one. On the second day at least 21 lives in the southern United States were taken and a tornado tore through the Mississippi town of Tupelo. Deaths were also reported in Oklahoma and Iowa on Sunday, and Alabama and Tennessee on Monday. More than 2,000 houses and 100 commercial properties have been reported damaged.
Genesis 12:3 – “And I will bless them that bless you, and curse him that curses you. . .”
Once again, the Obama Administration (OBAD)has denigrated Israel, and once again, the United States has been hit with natural disasters. Barky Insane O’Bummer hates Israel, and his foreign policies are now beginning to openly show that hatred: Israel must lose and the radical, Israeli hating Muslims and Hamas must win, he says. This continued hatred of Israel will only bring down Yahweh’s wrath upon this nation. Be prepared for further and more devastating “natural” disasters if our other governmental leaders allow these demands to continue.
We are literally seeing the nations, including the United States, turn against Israel, which will fulfill the prophecy of Zechariah 12. Hamas rocket fire into Israel is being portrayed as a retaliatory measure and the fault of Israel. Israel is going to push back and most likely will do so soon, which will fulfill Zephaniah 2.
According to some reports ISIS was equipped by the United States to fight Bashar Al Assad in Syria. This has backfired and now ISIS has overtaken large portions of Iraq and has declared a Caliphate in that nation. It is only a matter of time before they expand the Caliphate into Syria, Jordan and Saudi Arabia as well. ISIS, according to some reports, is already in the Gaza Strip and linked with the Palestinian Hamas government – a perfect setup for their goal of destroying Israel and taking Jerusalem.
Yahweh’s foreign policy is still intact – any who curse Israel, will be cursed themselves. Prophecy continues to unfold as foretold by the Hebrew prophets. The stage is being set. History is moving extremely quickly towards the prophesied one world government, the one world financial system, and the rise of both the Antichrist and the False Prophet. The birth pangs are just over the horizon. Yeshua Ha’Mashiach is coming soon – get busy reaching the lost.
