Mahmoud Abbas will get His Global War but He Won’t Like It

According to an article in the Times of Israel,

Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas on Tuesday warned that the Palestinians will not allow Israeli extremists to “contaminate” the Temple Mount, and said that allowing Jewish prayer at the site would risk a global religious war.

The PA leader also maintained that the rioters at the Al-Aqsa Mosque on the disputed holy site had the right to defend themselves, and said Muslims and Christians would never recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

Abbas’s remarks (Arabic link) came in an address to thousands who gathered in Ramallah in honor of the 10th anniversary of the death of PLO leader Yasser Arafat, during which he cautioned the Israeli government against changing the status quo at the Temple Mount.

“Keep the settlers and the extremists away from Al-Aqsa and our holy places,” Abbas demanded. “We will not allow our holy places to be contaminated. Keep them away from us and we will stay away from them, but if they enter al-Aqsa, [we] will protect al-Aqsa and the church and the entire country,” he said. It was unclear what church Abbas was referring to.

Abbas and his fellow Islamist agitators are playing a political game for personal wealth and power, but this is deadly serious business for Yahweh.  Jews and Christians aren’t contaminating the Temple Mount.  Abbas and his band of rabble-rousers are.

Jews and Christians pray on the Temple Mount all the time with no difficulty whatsoever.  I do it myself every time I visit.  Since I don’t lie down on a prayer rug and chant, they don’t know.

Prayer is personal.  It doesn’t have to be done with a lot of show, but Muslims on the Temple Mount don’t get it because Yahweh isn’t their Elohim.  They have to make a demonstration to make their god happy.  In their world, no exhibitionism is the same as no prayer.

Be that as it may, as the old saying goes, a blind hog finds an acorn once in a while.  Mahmoud Abbas has finally found an acorn.  He said that we are heading for a global war over the Temple Mount, and he’s right.  It’s not his doing.  Yahweh will make sure that it happens, and when it does, people like Abbas will suffer more than they can imagine.

Zachariah chapter 12 talks about it and so do other scriptures.  It has to do with Yahweh’s promises.  He will fulfill all of them, and no one can stop Him.

Matthew chapter 23 deals with it as well.  At the very end, the Messiah explains that Jewish people in Israel will turn to Him when they have no choice.  Regrettably, they won’t turn to Him unless they have no other alternative.  Their rabbis have made sure of that.  The rest of Matthew 23 is about them.

We are closer to that happening than most people realize.  Under Barack Obama’s leadership, the U.S. has become more of an enemy to Israel than an ally.  If we are against them, they have no friends in the world.  Yahweh is Israel’s only hope and they are a hop, skip, and jump away from realizing it.

So let Abbas agitate.  He won’t be deterred because he is in lockstep with his master.  Only Yahweh can stop them and He will.

HalleluYah!  Maranatha!






13--Perspectives 2


Ynet News: More Israelis killed by terror in past month than last two years—More Israelis have been murdered from attacks by terrorists from the West Bank and East Jerusalem in the last month than in the past two years combined. The dismal statistic comes as uncertainty and fear of more violence prevailed in the wake of two deadly stabbing attacks in Tel Aviv and Alon Shvut on Monday. Sergeant Almog Shiloni, 20, from Modi’in, killed in Tel Aviv, and Dalia Lemkus, 26, who was stabbed to death at the entrance to Alon Shvut, were the tenth and eleventh Israelis to be murdered in the past six months. They are the fifth and sixth fatalities in the past month, compared to five Israeli deaths from terror emanating from the West Bank in all of 2012 and 2013. Furthermore, more than 100 Israelis have been wounded in the past month due to terror attacks with perpetrators coming from the West Bank.

SnyderTalk Comment: That’s a fact that needs to be understood and shared.  It helps to see the “peace talks” in perspective, and it was as predictable as night following day.

Who should we blame?

Here’s a hint: his last name starts with an “O” and ends with an “a”.

Michael Curtis: Jerusalem in Israel— In 1003 B.C., King David proclaimed Jerusalem the capital of Israel.  He reigned there for 33 years.  The city is mentioned by name more than 500 times in the Bible.  It is never mentioned in the Koran.  Nor did Jerusalem ever become the capital of any Muslim political entity or province, Arab or non-Arab. In recent days, violence in the city and attacks on Israeli citizens have occurred, partly because of unjustified accusations that Israelis were damaging the Al Aqsa Mosque on the Temple Mount, or what Muslims refer to as Haram al-Sharif (Noble Sanctuary). The area is revered by both Jews and Muslims.  For Jews it is the place of the First Temple, built by Solomon and destroyed by Roman Emperor Titus in 70 A.D., though the 62-foot wall remains and is a place of Jewish prayer.  For Muslims it is the place where the Prophet Mohammed rode his horse to heaven, and the site, which also houses the Dome of the Rock, is regarded as Islam’s third-holiest place.  By agreement in 1967, the site is administered by the King of Jordan.  He pays the salaries of the 500 employees of the Waqf, and the Muslim authority that takes care of the mosque.  By mutual agreement, Jews can visit the area during certain hours but are not allowed to pray on the Mount.

Todd Gitlin: Apocalypse Soonest— On Oct. 29, in Jerusalem, a member of Islamic Jihad fired four shots into the chest of the American-born Rabbi Yehuda Glick, a prominent campaigner for Jews’ right to pray on what they call the Temple Mount and Muslims call the Noble Sanctuary (Haram al-Sharif). Glick had just given a speech to a conference called “Israel Returns to the Temple Mount.” As he was speaking, his mobile phone rang, whereupon he told his audience (“lightly,” in one account): “I always keep my mobile phone on, in case I get the message that permission has been granted to build the Temple and I have to run.” I admire his sense of humor, if that is what it is. The program of one of the leading groups that aims to revise the rules governing the Haram al-Sharif, Temple Mount Faithful, goes well beyond the right to pray to an even more provocative call “to build the Third Holy Temple without our lifetime with no delay … and to bring to pass all of His end-time prophetic plans for Israel and the entire world.”

Khaled Abu Toameh: Why Abbas Will Not Condemn Terror Attacks— Secretary of State Kerry’s “peace process” actually put Israelis and Palestinians on a new collision course. Not a single Palestinian Authority official has denounced the wave of terror attacks on Israel. They, too, are afraid of being condemned by their people for denouncing “heroic operations” such as ramming a car into a three-month old infant. Kerry and other Western leaders do not want to understand that Abbas is not authorized to make any concessions for peace with Israel. For Abbas, it is more convenient to be criticized by the U.S. and Israel than to be denounced by his own people. Ignoring these facts, Kerry tried to pressure Abbas into making concessions that would have turned the Palestinian Authority president into a “traitor” in the eyes of his people. Abbas knows that the people he has radicalized would turn against him if he dared to speak out against the killing of Jews.

Stephen Collinson: Will Congress kill an Iran nuclear deal?— Republicans poised to take control of Congress are already threatening to kill what could turn out to be President Barack Obama’s most significant second-term achievement: a nuclear deal with Iran. U.S. and Iranian negotiators are quickly approaching a Nov. 24 deadline to reach an agreement that would freeze Iran’s nuclear program in return for lifting international sanctions on the Islamic Republic. Hopes for a deal have been rising, though Obama cautioned this weekend a “big gap” remains between the two sides and there are powerful constituencies in each country angling against an agreement. In the U.S., Republicans — long skeptical of the talks — are increasingly furious that Obama might sideline Congress to finalize an accord. They’re especially angry that the administration might make such a move after last week’s midterm elections gave the GOP — dominated by foreign policy hard-liners — firm control of the House and Senate.

Peter Huessy: Hiding Unilateral Disarmament Objectives— It has been 33 years since the U.S. last embarked on a nuclear modernization program. Both the Secretary of the Navy and Secretary of Defense have called for a debate over what the future costs of the nuclear deterrent enterprise should be and what investment is needed to keep the peace and prevent nuclear war. At issue is whether the United States can afford to spend 4% of its defense budget and 0.6% of all federal spending to modernize its nuclear deterrent over the next decade and beyond. Two widely divergent views are emerging. The first is that a plan is necessary to modernize the U.S. nuclear capability to keep it a robust and credible deterrent in the face of advances currently being made by China and Russia and North Korea in their nuclear programs.

Lawrence Kadish: Ancient Kosher Laws Have Lessons for a 21st Century War against Ebola— In an era before antibiotics, blood tests and digital scanning thermometers; In an era before EKG’s, stethoscopes, blood transfusions and even refrigeration; In an era before doctors, science and even a rudimentary understanding of human anatomy, there was the ancient Jewish dietary law of kosher, which continues to offer a lesson for today’s fractured societies of western Africa struggling to contain the Ebola epidemic. Centuries ago, with an understanding of microbes and hygiene still far in the future, Jews observed that those who ate meat from sick or dead animals would often fall ill and die. Similar woes could result from animals not consumed in a timely way after being slaughtered. While they didn’t know of trichinosis, they also saw that eating pork could be fatal. Shellfish and fish without scales contained a similar lethal threat. The rich and frothy milk of that time could produce gastro illness when served with meat.

Keith Johnson: Xi’s Just That Into You— Just as President Barack Obama landed in China to try to salvage his vision of an American-led trading order in Asia, Russia and China took a giant step toward closer economic and political ties with an agreement on another massive energy deal that promises to tighten the bear hug between Moscow and Beijing for decades to come. The preliminary accord, which comes just months after China and Russia inked a landmark, $400 billion natural gas deal, is a reflection of the shifting balance of power in Asia. It’s a marriage based on needs: Russia’s to break out of the isolation imposed by the West in the wake of its annexation of Crimea and China’s for reliable and affordable sources of energy. Coupled with China’s economic offensive in Asia — which includes everything from new trade pacts with U.S. partners such as Australia and South Korea, to a push for Chinese-led development banks that can wrest financing muscle from the West — the latest gas deal shows what kind of challenges await the U.S. economic and diplomatic pivot to Asia.

David Remnick: The One-State Reality—Reuven (Ruvi) Rivlin, the new President of Israel, is ardently opposed to the establishment of a Palestinian state. He is instead a proponent of Greater Israel, one Jewish state from the Jordan River to the Mediterranean Sea. He professes to be mystified that anyone should object to the continued construction of Jewish settlements in the West Bank: “It can’t be ‘occupied territory’ if the land is your own.” Rivlin does not have the starched personality of an ideologue, however. He resembles a cheerfully overbearing Borscht Belt comedian who knows too many bad jokes to tell in a single set but is determined to try. Sitting in an office decorated with mementos of his right-wing Zionist lineage, he unleashes a cataract of anecdotes, asides, humble bromides, corny one-liners, and historical footnotes. At seventy-five, he has the florid, bulbous mug of a cartoon flatfoot, if that flatfoot were descended from Lithuanian Talmudists and six generations of Jerusalemites. Rivlin’s father, Yosef, was a scholar of Arabic literature. (He translated the Koran and “The Thousand and One Nights.”) Ruvi Rivlin’s temperament is other than scholarly. He is, in fact, given to categorical provocations. After a visit some years ago to a Reform synagogue in Westfield, New Jersey, he declared that the service was “idol worship and not Judaism.”

Caroline Glick’s Comment: It works out that David Remnick, the editor of the New Yorker follows me on Facebook. He quoted my posts rather liberally, (and my columns and book not at all, but whatever), in his new article in the New Yorker about the inevitability of Israeli sovereignty over Judea and Samaria.

It’s important on a day like today and a time like this, when the Palestinians feel it necessary to remind us the depths of depravity to which they are happy to sink, for us all to recognize that there is no way to separate from the Palestinians.

The only way to ensure our future — and theirs — is for Israel to apply our sovereignty over Judea and Samaria. Otherwise we will be destroyed as a state and a people. For their part, they will be overrun by jihadists. Only Israeli sovereignty can bring and maintain peace. Every other option is a recipe for disaster.

The Inquisitr: The Middle East Is Making Fun Of ISIS, New Satire Mocks Terrorists—The Middle East knows there’s one thing that Islamic terrorists can’t stand, satire. Which is why comedians and networks in the region have started a humor offensive against the Islamic State. Cartoons and sketches now regularly harpoon the group and its leaders, slowly chipping away at their fabricated image of invincible killers. According to the Economist, a state TV channel in Iraq, Al Iraqiya, has pumped about $600,000, an unprecedented amount for the channel, into the production of Dawlat al-Khurafa, which shows ISIS taking over a fictional village in Iraq and the dysfunctional antics that occur as a result. For example, they put the town drunk in charge of the alcohol ban, silly ISIS. The first episode is already appearing to be a big hit in the Middle East with 750,000 views on YouTube. Lebanon has been getting in on the trend too.

SnyderTalk Comment: We can make as much fun of ISIS as we want, but in the end, we’re going to have to fight them and kill them.  They have given us no choice.  They are killing as many of us as they can already.  We are behind the curve.  With Obama and Kerry in charge of U.S. policy, that’s where we are likely to remain for the next 2 years.

Will ISIS wait that long to ramp up their assaults?  I doubt it.

SnyderTalk Comment: When I think about Turkey’s President Erdogan, I remind myself where Satan’s throne is.  I didn’t understand how relevant the location remains to this day.

Obama desperate for a deal with Iran at any price

SnyderTalk Comment: Rewind to 2008 and remember this question: What harm can Obama do?

Add a nuclear armed Iran to the very long list.

Two times U.S. voters elected Barack Obama president.  As a nation, we can’t say we didn’t understand.  Before he was elected the first time, we had lots of evidence, but before his re-election, we had mountains of solid proof.

Stupidity demands a price, and the price will be paid.

SnyderTalk Comment: This is not a joke.  I wish it was.

“Obama” and “strategy” are two words that don’t belong in the same sentence, and “Obama” and “thinking” are polar opposites.

Obama had a very good reason to prevent the release of any of his academic records, and there is a very good reason why he didn’t write a single article for the Harvard Law Review while he was editor.

Two More Years!  Two More Years!

I’m afraid that we’re about to realize how long two years can be.

14--Blessings from Revelation 2

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.
