Israel Hayom Staff: At UN summit, Erdoğan calls Zionism a ‘crime against humanity’—Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan grouped Zionism with anti-Semitism and Islamophobia as a “crime against humanity” in a speech at a U.N. summit on tolerance held in Vienna on Wednesday, “Just like Zionism, anti-Semitism and fascism, it becomes unavoidable that Islamophobia must be regarded as a crime against humanity,” Erdoğan said.

Ezekiel 48: 30-35

“These are the exits of the city: on the north side, 4,500 cubits by measurement, shall be the gates of the city, named for the tribes of Israel, three gates toward the north: the gate of Reuben, one; the gate of Judah, one; the gate of Levi, one. On the east side, 4,500 cubits, shall be three gates: the gate of Joseph, one; the gate of Benjamin, one; the gate of Dan, one. On the south side, 4,500 cubits by measurement, shall be three gates: the gate of Simeon, one; the gate of Issachar, one; the gate of Zebulun, one. On the west side, 4,500 cubits, shall be three gates: the gate of Gad, one; the gate of Asher, one; the gate of Naphtali, one. The city shall be 18,000 cubits round about; and the name of the city from that day shall be, ‘Yahweh is there.’”

  • God also said to Moses, “Say to the Israelites, ‘Yahweh, the God of your fathers—the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac and the God of Jacob—has sent me to you.’ This [Yahweh] is my name forever, the name by which I am to be remembered from generation to generation.” (Exodus 3: 15)
  • “Therefore behold, I am going to make them know—this time I will make them know My power and My might; and they shall know that My name is Yahweh.” (Jeremiah 16: 21)
  • “Behold, the days are coming,” declares Yahweh, “when I will raise up for David a righteous Branch; and He will reign as king and act wisely and do justice and righteousness in the land.  In His days Judah will be saved, and Israel will dwell securely; and this is His name by which He will be called, ‘Yahweh our righteousness.’” (Jeremiah 23: 5-6)
  • Yeshua said to them, “Truly, truly, I say to you, before Abraham was born, I am.” (John 8: 58)

Brett LoGiurato: BOB WOODWARD: Obama Is Showing ‘A Kind Of Madness I Haven’t Seen In A Long Time’—The Washington Post’s Bob Woodward ripped into President Barack Obama on “Morning Joe” today, saying he’s exhibiting a “kind of madness I haven’t seen in a long time” for a decision not to deploy an aircraft carrier to the Persian Gulf because of budget concerns. “Can you imagine Ronald Reagan sitting there and saying, ‘Oh, by the way, I can’t do this because of some budget document?'” Woodward said.

Boaz Bismuth: The world grows indifferent to Iran— The sole “achievement” of the talks in Kazakhstan is that they did not implode. And why would they? Everything is going exactly Iran’s way.

Clifford D. May: The sanctions paradox— Economic warfare is absolutely essential — even though it will almost certainly fail.

David M. Weinberg: Chill out, Obama and Kerry— Modest diplomacy is the only realistic way to push Israeli-Palestinian relations away from the dangers of confrontation.

Adam Levick: Terrorist Propagandizing – a Beginners Guide: By Ben White— Ben White, professional Israel hater, anti-Semite whisperer, and ‘Comment is Free’ contributor, may have landed a new gig. White – a proponent of the one-state solution, and a Brit who’s arguably one of  the Guardian’s favorite BDS supporters – has previously romanticized about the bloodshed of Palestinian ‘martyrs’, so it’s not surprising that a recent commentary he published at Al Jazeera on Feb. 22, titled ‘What a period of relative calm looks like in the Occupied Territories‘, was recently cross posted.

Ted R. Bromund: Al-Qaeda in the United States—Yesterday, Jonathan remembered the 20th anniversary of the first attack on the World Trade Center by pointing out that, while we’ve come a long way since 9/11, we are at risk of putting the dangers of al-Qaeda and radical Islam “in our collective rear-view mirrors.” It was also 20 years ago that Senator Daniel Moynihan warned of the dangers of “defining deviancy down.” Today, our strategy against al-Qaeda is to win by defining victory down, and focusing only on the damage we do to its so-called core. That wrongly elevates drone strikes from a tool into a strategy, ignores the recruiting appeal of the Islamist ideology that is at the heart of the danger posed by al-Qaeda, and neglects the fact that we are not very good at anticipating how al-Qaeda’s franchises and allies will grow, cooperate, and spread. Last year, very few analysts worried about Islamist militants in the Maghreb; today, they control half a country.

Michael Rubin: Iranian Flotilla to Head to China—It was inevitable that in an era when John Kerry is the secretary of state and the State Department basically runs the Pentagon, America’s adversaries would begin to test U.S. resolve. Hence, the latest news out of Iran should not surprise: Navy Commander Rear Admiral Habibollah Sayyari said Tuesday that Iranian flotilla of warships entered the Pacific Ocean after passing through the Malaga region, one of the most important waterways around the world. On the sidelines of a national ceremony, Sayyari told IRNA that the Iranian flotilla is to be berthed at a Chinese port with the objective of strengthening friendly relations between Tehran and Beijing.

Amb. Matthew Gould: Three Rules to Understanding Iran—Ten years ago I was living in Iran, as Britain’s deputy ambassador. I dealt daily with the Iranian regime, traveled the country, and learned Persian history and culture. Iran is complicated and hard to understand, but I took away three lessons that are important now. First, in every decision the regime takes, they are focused on one overarching goal: To stay in power. One key reason they want nuclear capability is that they believe it will guarantee them their continuity in power.

Barry Rubin: Who Will the Muslim Brotherhood Heed: Allah, or Tom Friedman?—For the last two years, Thomas Friedman has been an apologist for the Muslim Brotherhood, a cheerleader for the course taken by the “Arab Spring,” and he has constantly insisted that the “democratic” revolution is going well. Now he is saying that you cannot trust the Brotherhood, as it seeks total power and is anti-democratic. This is a perfect example of the farce passing for Middle East commentary in the West.

Claudia Rosett: A Rocket from Gaza, and UN as Usual—It looks likely that apart from voicing concern, United Nations officials won’t bestir themselves in the cause of stopping more terrorist rockets from Gaza. Israel’s Ambassador Prosor will be left to write more letters, until Israel’s next attempt to defend itself gets the UN’s full attention.

Yiftah Shapir: Another Layer of Defense: The Arrow-3 Test—The first test launch of the Arrow-3 missile interceptor system was conducted by the Israeli defense establishment on February 25, 2013. Once it becomes operational, scheduled for 2014-2015, the Arrow-3 system will add another layer to Israel’s multi-tiered missile defense system and will provideIsrael with protection against a threat that until now has not been met. In addition, the Arrow-3 has aspects that are no less important than Israel’s heightened ability to intercept missiles. The development of the system represents a technological achievement for the defense industry that will advance it and preserve its leading position on the global technological front.

HonestReporting: Inmate Death: What the Media Chose to Ignore—When is a terrorist not a terrorist? Apparently, when it doesn’t fit the media’s narrative, like the coverage of Arafat Jaradat, who died in an Israeli prison this week.

Leslie H. Gelb: How to Save Syria from Al-Qaeda—President Obama is wisely avoiding ever creeping military measures on behalf of rebels, many of whom might well turn out to be even worse than the already viperous President Assad. The real dangers in Syria today come less from Assad and much more from increasingly potent Sunni extremist fighters. If the “rebels” win, jihadis likely would be the real victors. They’d swiftly create a terrorist state to menace Turkey, Lebanon, Jordan, and Israel.

Lt. Col. (ret.) Michael Segall: Iran’s Attempted Rapprochement with Egypt: Implications for Sunni-Shiite Relations—The Arab Spring has reinforced the conflict between the Arab states and Iran. While Iran continues to see the Islamic manifestations of the Arab Spring as an opportunity to promote its Islamic hegemonic aims, upheavals in the Arab world have in fact widened the gaps between Iran and the Arab states. This is mainly due to Iran’s unequivocal backing of Syria, where Assad keeps trying to crush the opposition, and Iran’s support for the Shiite opposition in Bahrain.

Seth Mandel: Hagel Supporters Suddenly Singing Different Tune—Those backing Hagel couldn’t seriously argue that he is competent or well-versed in the facts–after all, Hagel himself admitted he wasn’t knowledgeable and pledged to try his best not to let his stunning incompetence get in the way of those actually making policy. The best they could do was argue Hagel’s views wouldn’t matter.

Peter Wehner: Obama Demagoguery Supplemented by a Touch of Cruelty—In the Great Sequestration Debate, here’s what we know: (a) The president has paternity of an idea he now characterizes as a brutal and senseless assault on America. (b) The president and his then-chief of staff, Jack Lew, misled the public about their role in giving birth to the sequester idea. (c) House Republicans have twice passed legislation to avoid the sequester cuts with carefully targeted ones, but Senate Democrats refused to act. (d) Mr. Obama has brushed off a Republican plan to give him flexibility to allocate the $85 billion in spending cuts, which makes no sense if the president wants to replace reckless cuts with responsible ones.

Arnold Ahlert: Obama Terrorizes Public with Illegal Alien Releases—Scandalous scare tactic over sequester backfires on the administration.

Hal Scherz: Healthcare and Politics Do Not Mix—Make no mistake about it- the Obama administration’s Medicaid expansion plan at the state level is not about providing healthcare insurance coverage to those who do not currently have it, and it certainly has nothing to do with compassion. It is about control and dependency. It is about expanding the rolls of Americans who rely on government subsidized healthcare. It is about moving forward with the Affordable Care Act which will ultimately touch every American but will be controlled from Washington DC.

Bruce Johnson: Low Information Voters? How about a Low Information President?—Obama’s non-engagement and aversion to compromise is actually seated in his complete lack of knowledge, and therefore inability to defend his agenda or even forge a compromise.

Warren Beatty: ‘Forward!’ They Cried—Mussolini and Hitler may be tough acts to follow, but Obama’s the man who can do it.

Bethany Mandel: Donna Brazile Discovers the Personal Cost of Obamacare—This morning, liberal political strategist and CNN contributor Donna Brazile posted an update to Twitter that has had conservatives laughing for hours. She complained: What’s on your menu? Just got off the phone with my health care provider asking them to explain why my premium jumped up. No good answer!



14--Blessings from Revelation

Blessings in the Book of Revelation is a book that you need to read, especially now.  There are blessings throughout the Scriptures but Revelation is the only book in the Bible actually containing a specific blessing for reading it. It’s repeated twice, once at the beginning and again at the end. This is the reason that I believe Revelation should be the first step toward studying biblical prophecy. Though not easy to do, Revelation can be broken down and understood by anyone, not just the academic elite. So, Revelation’s blessings are for everyone.  Click here to order the eBook.  Click here to order the paperback.
