August 8-9, 2015 SnyderTalk: What Yasser Arafat said and Why it Matters

1--Intro Covering Israel and ME

“And it will come about in the last days that the mountain of the house of Yahweh will be established as the chief of the mountains. It will be raised above the hills, and the peoples will stream to it. Many nations will come and say, ‘Come and let us go up to the mountain of Yahweh and to the house of the God of Jacob, that He may teach us about His ways and that we may walk in His paths.’ For from Zion will go forth the law, even the word of Yahweh from Jerusalem.” Micah 4: 1-2

What Yasser Arafat said and Why it Matters

A poll among Palestinians taken recently revealed a fundamental truth about them and the way they think.  An article by David Pollock titled “Poll: Palestinians Say Even After Two-State Solution, Resistance Should Continue Until All of Historic Palestine Is Liberated” provides the gist of it:

A poll of Palestinians conducted June 7-19, 2015, found that 58% of West Bankers and 65% of Gazans say that even if a “two-state solution” is negotiated, “the struggle is not over and resistance should continue until all of historic Palestine is liberated.” At the same time, 83% of Gazans say that “Hamas should maintain a ceasefire with Israel.”

Far too few people are willing to accept the fact that Palestinians do not want peace with Israel.  To Palestinians, a peace treaty with Israel if there ever is one will be nothing more than a step toward the annihilation of the Jewish state.  That’s what the poll told us.

That’s exactly what Yasser Arafat said a long time ago:

“Since we cannot defeat Israel in war we do this in stages.  We take any and every territory that we can of Palestine, and establish sovereignty there, and we use it as a springboard to take more.  When the time comes, we can get the Arab nations to join us for the final blow against Israel.” (Yasser Arafat speaking on Jordanian television, September 13, 1993—the same day the Oslo Peace Accord ceremony was held in Washington D.C.) 

The Oslo Peace Accord is the birthplace of the “two-state solution”.  On the very day that he signed the Accord, Arafat went on television in Jordan to let his people know that it was a meaningless piece of paper and that he hadn’t changed his position one iota.  For that charade, he won the 1994 Nobel Peace Prize.

Arafat was around for a long time doing evil deeds.  In 1980, he laid out his strategy for Israel’s destruction so clearly that you need help to be confused:

“Peace for us means the destruction of Israel.  We are preparing for an all-out war, a war which will last for generations.  Since January 1965, when Fatah was born, we have become the most dangerous enemy that Israel has….We shall not rest until the day when we return to our home, and until we destroy Israel.” (El Mundo, Caracas, Venezuela, February 11, 1980)

Even though Arafat is dead, his philosophies are alive and well in Gaza and the West Bank.  Islamists are trumpeting Arafat’s cause and using his strategy, too.  President Obama appears to be in lockstep with them.  On the global scene, anti-Semitism is increasing rapidly, and Israel haters routinely use the so-called “plight of the Palestinians” as an excuse for their vehement loathing of Jewish people and Israel.

Would appeasing Israel haters and other anti-Semites by giving in to Palestinian demands solve the problem?  Absolutely not.  As long as Israel exists, they won’t be satisfied.

Arafat’s legacy matters a lot.  Like Arafat, Palestinians today will say anything while talks about peace in the Middle East are ongoing and lots of money is on the table, but what they say is as meaningless as the Oslo Accord.  All they want and the only thing they will accept is Israel’s destruction.

That’s the truth, and that’s why there can be no peace.

This is the bottom line: a big war is coming and it will center on Israel.  Therefore, all of us need to know whose side we are on.  Either we are for Yahweh and His promises to and about the Children of Israel or we are against Him.  It’s as simple as that:

“I know your deeds, that you are neither cold nor hot; I wish that you were cold or hot. So because you are lukewarm, and neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of My mouth.” (Revelation 3: 15-16)

That’s Yahweh speaking.  There are no fence sitters from His perspective.

I hope you will take the time to watch this video.  It will give you a good idea how invalid the claims of Palestinian are.  Just click on this title to see it: “Animated Presentation of Empires in the Middle East”.

I also hope that you will take the time to examine the His Name is Yahweh website. The homepage cover picture is below:

13--Perspectives 2


William Booth: ‘We are the tip of the spear’ that protects Israel, right-wing settlers say—This Jewish settlement of zealots on a stony hilltop has been branded by fellow Israelis as one of the most extreme in the West Bank, the vanguard of past violent confrontations with both the Israeli military and Palestinian neighbors. The settlers of Yitzhar admit they are hard-core, but they say they are the tip of the spear that protects Israel — not baby-killers. “You won’t hear even my most radical neighbors say that Duma was a good thing, at least out loud,” said Ezri Tubi, the newly elected resident spokesman for Yitzhar, referring to the Palestinian village where a toddler died last week in arsonists’ flames.

SnyderTalk Comment: “Right-wing” is a terrible descriptor.  They are simply being faithful to Yahweh. Regrettably, in Israel, that’s what “right-wing” means most of the time.

There are some nutjobs in Israel, but settlers are not in that category.

Maj. Gen. (ret.) Yaakov Amidror—The Vienna Accord Only Postpones Confrontation with Iran:

  • It is clear that the agreement with Iran was signed in order to delay the Iranian nuclear bomb program, not to end it. Thus, when the program rears its head again, it will be a problem several times more serious and far harder to deal with. There is no cause for hysteria. The agreement will not bring about Israel’s downfall, and in the best-case scenario may even buy Israel some time to better prepare for confronting the Iranian challenge.
  • It is a bad agreement. The reality facing Israel (and the world) following its signing is significantly more threatening than before. Iran gets to keep its (military) nuclear program, while sanctions against Iran are lifted.
  • At some stage the U.S. decided to move from a policy aimed at dismantling Iran’s nuclear capability, to a policy aimed at delaying Iran’s ability to achieve nuclear weapons. As soon as the U.S. decided to make do with delaying Iran’s getting the bomb, then Israel was left on the outside – not because of strained relations between the president and the prime minister, but because of significant differences of opinion.
  • The fact that the powers signed an agreement must not be allowed to paralyze Israel. The country’s security is at stake. As the current president of the U.S. has said: “Israel must be able to defend itself, by itself.”
  • Governments do not like to be put in the position of having to make difficult decisions. In 1995 Israel presented a great deal of high-quality, well-analyzed intelligence information to the U.S., to show our friends in Washington that the Iranian administration had begun a military nuclear program. The Americans appointed a team headed by a senior official to examine it. At the end, this official let us know that we had “failed completely in our efforts to create a new enemy.” A further two years passed before my successor was able to persuade the Americans that the Iranian enemy was real and that its nuclear military program was dangerous.
  • It is not difficult to imagine U.S. intelligence staff presenting information about Iranian violations and being rebuffed by decision-makers, using learned explanations, until it is simply too late. If the Iranians make an effort to cheat and to hide the evidence, it is almost certain that they will be able to develop their first nuclear device before the West can respond.
  • There is little chance that America will follow through on its promise that, after signing the agreement, it will be more determined in its efforts to contain Iran. Once a rival state becomes a partner to an agreement, one does not increase efforts taken against it in other realms. No one in the West will now be interested in jeopardizing either the agreement or trade relations with Iran. It is therefore likely that Iran will become much stronger internally, regionally, economically, and militarily, with little opposition from the U.S.
  • This agreement will likely and necessarily lead to the use of force against Iran, at some stage or other, in order to halt its race toward nuclear weapons. This, however, will take place in far worse conditions than before the agreement, against a far stronger Iran.

Frank Gardner: Saudi Arabia flexing its muscles in Middle East—In its place has come a new, assertive attitude that is seeing the oil-rich kingdom set off on previously untried and potentially risky ventures. In Yemen, the Saudi military has now been at war with Houthi rebels for more than four months. In Syria, Saudi patronage for Islamist rebels opposed to the government of President Bashar al-Assad has been stepped up dramatically – and, on the Iran nuclear deal, well-placed Saudi sources have let it be known that if they assess Tehran as likely to acquire nuclear weapons in the future, then Saudi Arabia will go down the same path, triggering a Middle Eastern arms race. So, what’s behind this?

Fareed Zakaria: Why the United States can be optimistic about the Middle East—Many critics of the nuclear deal with Iran believe that the problem lies in the disposition of the president. “A very, very naive man who does not know how the world works,” said Rick Perry of President Obama. “Dangerously naive,” noted Lindsey Graham. In fact, Obama is not naive, but disposition does matter. Obama is an optimist — about the world, the United States’ place in it and even the threats it faces in the Middle East. And history suggests that it’s the optimists who have tended to be right. Today we are awash in pessimism, with people who see the world as a dark and dangerous place, where threats are growing and enemies are gaining strength. Last year, John McCain declared that the world is “in greater turmoil than at any time in my lifetime” (which includes the rise of fascism, Nazism, World War II and the Soviet nuclear threat). We’ve seen this before, often. In an essay in 1989, Harvard scholar Samuel Huntington noted that the United States was experiencing its fifth wave of that kind of pessimism since the 1950s.

SnyderTalk Comment: Hogwash.  Zakaria is just blowing smoke.  I hope he didn’t plagiarize this article, but you never know.

Raphael Ahren: U.S. Jewish Leader: Several EU PMs, Including from P5+1, Very Unhappy with Iran Deal—European leaders have reservations and concerns about the Iran nuclear deal, but have reluctantly followed Washington’s enthusiastic lead, according to Malcolm Hoenlein, the executive vice president of the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations. Hoenlein told the Israel Diplomatic Correspondents Association on Thursday that he knows first-hand that Israel and the Gulf states are not alone in their apprehension over the Iran deal. European prime ministers and foreign ministers – including from countries that negotiated the accord – are “very uncomfortable with this deal,” he said. President Obama on Wednesday said Israel was the only country in the world to publicly oppose the deal.

Brennan Weiss: Arabs Eye Iran Nuclear Deal with Distrust, Disapproval—Mideast analysts say most Arabs are worried about the implications of the deal and whether Iran will ramp up its involvement in regional conflicts. “Most people in the Arab world are very skeptical about Iran and mistrustful, especially along sectarian lines. Iran is not popular these days in the Sunni-Arab world,” said Hussein Ibish, a senior resident scholar at the Arab Gulf States Institutes in Washington. “I think this is one instance in which public opinion and the opinion of the governments, which often do diverge, are actually fairly closely in sync.” “What drives suspicion of the Iranian deal in the Arab streets is Iranian behavior of funding of wars in the region,” Joyce Karam, an expert on U.S. policy in the Middle East and a correspondent for Al-Hayat, said Wednesday at the Middle East Institute in Washington. “What is Iran doing fighting Syrians? What is Hizbullah doing in Yemen? What is Iran doing in Saddam [Hussein’s] town of Tikrit? These are all questions that are being raised by Arab youth and by average people.”

Hisham Melhem: Arabs View the Nuclear Deal as a U.S. Shift towards Iran—The nuclear deal is seen by many Arabs as signifying the beginning of an American strategic shift towards Iran as the regional influential, at a time when they are locked in what they and the Iranians see as an epochal geo-political struggle. In a region where perception usually trumps reality, the nuclear deal comes at a time when many people in the region believe that America’s influence in the Middle East and beyond is declining, and that Iran is a rising power. The nuclear deal, as touted by Iranian officials and their allies, is seen as a validation of Iran’s narrative of its indispensable regional role, even for the U.S., as demonstrated in the tacit alliance between Iran and the U.S. against ISIS in Iraq. President Obama himself reinforced this Iranian narrative, by his talk of Iran becoming “a very successful regional power” without conditioning his recognition of this status on a shift in Iran’s behavior. One can understand Arab concern that the U.S. is gradually lowering its profile in the Middle East-Gulf region, and pushing it further under Iran’s shadow.

David Brooks: The Iran Agreement—a U.S. Defeat—Over the past several years the U.S. has engaged in an economic, clandestine and political war against Iran to force it to give up its nuclear program. Wars, military or economic, are measured by whether you achieved your stated objectives. By this standard the U.S. lost the war against Iran. As a report from the Foreign Policy Initiative exhaustively details, the Iran agreement delays but does not end Iran’s nuclear program. It legitimizes Iran’s status as a nuclear state. Iran will mothball some of its centrifuges, but it will not dismantle or close any of its nuclear facilities. Nuclear research and development will continue. Iran wins the right to enrich uranium. The agreement does not include “anywhere, anytime” inspections; some inspections would require a 24-day waiting period, giving the Iranians plenty of time to clean things up. After eight years, all restrictions on ballistic missiles are lifted.

Charles Krauthammer: Who Is Helping Iran’s Hard-Liners?—Everyone now knows that “anytime, anywhere” inspections – indispensable for a clandestine nuclear program in a country twice the size of Texas with a long history of hiding and cheating – has been changed to “You’ve got 24 days and then we’re coming in for a surprise visit.” Snapback sanctions? Everyone knows that once the international sanctions are lifted, they are never coming back. The Death-to-America Iranian hard-liners are the government, for God’s sake – the entire state apparatus of the Islamic Republic from the Revolutionary Guards to supreme leader Ayatollah Khamenei – who for decades have propagated, encouraged and applauded those “Death to America” chants. With this agreement, this repressive, intolerant, aggressive, supremely anti-American regime – the chief exporter of terror in the world – is stronger and more entrenched than it has ever been.

Michael Singh: Implications of the Iran Agreement for U.S. Policy in the Middle East—The agreement will permit Iran to retain the option to build a nuclear weapon in the future. Indeed, the agreement could be seen as a means by which Iran buys time to perfect, in some cases with international assistance, advanced centrifuges, weaponization, and long-range ballistic missiles. Iran’s “redlines” seem to have been designed to shape this outcome, implying that Iran’s purpose in the talks has been to obtain sanctions relief while retaining or even improving its nuclear weapons capability. The strength of the agreement must rest on our ability to detect and deter any such weapons-development effort, whether covert or overt. Unfortunately, the inspection mechanism in the accord does not appear up to this task. While robust monitoring will be in place at declared sites, the U.S. intelligence community assessed in 2007 that Iran “probably would use covert facilities – rather than its declared nuclear sites – for the production of highly-enriched uranium for a weapon.” The agreement does not, however, permit inspectors anything approaching unfettered access to suspect sites.

Michael Gerson: How the Nuclear Deal Will Fund Iran’s Imperialism—Over the past few decades, Iran has pursued a highly effective, asymmetrical campaign to spread its influence and destabilize its enemies. Iranian operatives have set out to exploit local grievances and export their version of anti-American, anti-Semitic, revolutionary Islamism. Iran’s first and best success was the creation of Lebanese Hizbullah. Through it, Iran changed the regional balance of power by positioning 100,000 rockets in Lebanon aimed at Israel. Tehran is responsible for the survival of Bashar al-Assad’s murderous regime, propped up at key moments by Iranian money and Hizbullah ground forces. Iran has also gained effective control of Iraq’s public institutions, since Shiite militias (many allied with Iran) seem to be the only effective fighting forces in the country other than the Islamic State and the Kurds. With the nuclear deal, Iran will have more money to purchase weapons from Russia to challenge U.S. military access to the Persian Gulf, and to purchase a great deal of regional chaos. While administration officials talk of pushing back against Iranian influence, “They have no answer to the subversive activities of Iran in Iraq, Syria, Lebanon and Yemen,” said Michael Doran of the Hudson Institute.

Chuck Schumer: My Position on the Iran Deal— Over the years, I have learned that the best way to treat such decisions is to study the issue carefully, hear the full, unfiltered explanation of those for and against, and then, without regard to pressure, politics or party, make a decision solely based on the merits. I have spent the last three weeks doing just that: carefully studying the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, reading and re-reading the agreement and its annexes, questioning dozens of proponents and opponents, and seeking answers to questions that go beyond the text of the agreement but will have real consequences that must be considered.

Burning churches kosher? ‘Halachic nonsense,’ says Torah professor

SnyderTalk Comment: “Halachic nonsense” is correct.  If those who worship Halacha instead of Yahweh had any idea who the Messiah is, they would be shocked.  Yahweh called them blind leaders of the blind.  Matthew chapter 23 is about them. Take a look:

1 Then the Messiah spoke to the crowds and to His disciples, 2 saying: “The scribes and the Pharisees have seated themselves in the chair of Moses; 3 therefore all that they tell you, do and observe, but do not do according to their deeds; for they say things and do not do them. 4 They tie up heavy burdens and lay them on men’s shoulders, but they themselves are unwilling to move them with so much as a finger. 5 But they do all their deeds to be noticed by men; for they broaden their phylacteries and lengthen the tassels of their garments. 6 They love the place of honor at banquets and the chief seats in the synagogues, 7 and respectful greetings in the market places, and being called Rabbi by men. 8 But do not be called Rabbi; for One is your Teacher, and you are all brothers. 9 Do not call anyone on earth your father; for One is your Father, He who is in heaven. 10 Do not be called leaders; for One is your Leader, that is, Christ. 11 But the greatest among you shall be your servant. 12 Whoever exalts himself shall be humbled; and whoever humbles himself shall be exalted.”

13 “But woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites, because you shut off the kingdom of heaven from people; for you do not enter in yourselves, nor do you allow those who are entering to go in. 14 Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites, because you devour widows’ houses, and for a pretense you make long prayers; therefore you will receive greater condemnation.”

15 “Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites, because you travel around on sea and land to make one proselyte; and when he becomes one, you make him twice as much a son of hell as yourselves.”

16 “Woe to you, blind guides, who say, ‘Whoever swears by the temple, that is nothing; but whoever swears by the gold of the temple is obligated.’ 17 You fools and blind men! Which is more important, the gold or the temple that sanctified the gold? 18 And, ‘Whoever swears by the altar, that is nothing, but whoever swears by the offering on it, he is obligated.’ 19 You blind men, which is more important, the offering, or the altar that sanctifies the offering? 20 Therefore, whoever swears by the altar, swears both by the altar and by everything on it. 21 And whoever swears by the temple, swears both by the temple and by Him who dwells within it. 22 And whoever swears by heaven, swears both by the throne of God and by Him who sits upon it.”

23 “Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you tithe mint and dill and cummin, and have neglected the weightier provisions of the law: justice and mercy and faithfulness; but these are the things you should have done without neglecting the others. 24 You blind guides, who strain out a gnat and swallow a camel!”

25 “Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you clean the outside of the cup and of the dish, but inside they are full of robbery and self-indulgence. 26 You blind Pharisee, first clean the inside of the cup and of the dish, so that the outside of it may become clean also.”

27 “Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you are like whitewashed tombs which on the outside appear beautiful, but inside they are full of dead men’s bones and all uncleanness. 28 So you, too, outwardly appear righteous to men, but inwardly you are full of hypocrisy and lawlessness.”

29 “Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you build the tombs of the prophets and adorn the monuments of the righteous, 30 and say, ‘If we had been living in the days of our fathers, we would not have been partners with them in shedding the blood of the prophets.’ 31 So you testify against yourselves, that you are sons of those who murdered the prophets. 32 Fill up, then, the measure of the guilt of your fathers. 33 You serpents, you brood of vipers, how will you escape the sentence of hell?

34 “Therefore, behold, I am sending you prophets and wise men and scribes; some of them you will kill and crucify, and some of them you will scourge in your synagogues, and persecute from city to city, 35 so that upon you may fall the guilt of all the righteous blood shed on earth, from the blood of righteous Abel to the blood of Zechariah, the son of Berechiah, whom you murdered between the temple and the altar. 36 Truly I say to you, all these things will come upon this generation.”

[The verses below are the conclusion of Matthew 23.  They are prophetic verses, but they didn’t come from a prophet.  This is Yahweh speaking.  I think they are the saddest verses in the Bible, but they are uplifting as well.  One day the Children of Israel living in Israel and specifically in Jerusalem will call on the Name of their Creator and know who they are calling on.]

37 “Jerusalem, Jerusalem, who kills the prophets and stones those who are sent to her! How often I wanted to gather your children together, the way a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, and you were unwilling. 38 Behold, your house is being left to you desolate! 39 For I say to you, from now on you will not see Me until you say, ‘BLESSED ISHE WHO COMES IN THE NAME OF YAHWEH!’”

This is how Zechariah described what will happen:

10 “I will pour out on the house of David and on the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the Spirit of grace and of supplication, so that they will look on Me whom they have pierced; and they will mourn for Him, as one mourns for an only son, and they will weep bitterly over Him like the bitter weeping over a firstborn. 11 In that day there will be great mourning in Jerusalem, like the mourning of Hadadrimmon in the plain of Megiddo.” (Zechariah 12: 10-11)

Sadly, for that to happen, they must have no other alternative except Yahweh.  Actually, He is their only alternative now, but they don’t realize it.

Exodus 18

5 Then Jethro, Moses’ father-in-law, came with his sons and his wife to Moses in the wilderness where he was camped, at the mount of God. 6 He sent word to Moses, “I, your father-in-law Jethro, am coming to you with your wife and her two sons with her.” 7 Then Moses went out to meet his father-in-law, and he bowed down and kissed him; and they asked each other of their welfare and went into the tent. 8 Moses told his father-in-law all that Yahweh had done to Pharaoh and to the Egyptians for Israel’s sake, all the hardship that had befallen them on the journey, and how Yahweh had delivered them. 9 Jethro rejoiced over all the goodness which Yahweh had done to Israel, in delivering them from the hand of the Egyptians. 10 So Jethro said, “Blessed be Yahweh who delivered you from the hand of the Egyptians and from the hand of Pharaoh, and who delivered the people from under the hand of the Egyptians. 11 “Now I know that Yahweh is greater than all the gods; indeed, it was proven when they dealt proudly against the people.” 12 Then Jethro, Moses’ father-in-law, took a burnt offering and sacrifices for God, and Aaron came with all the elders of Israel to eat a meal with Moses’ father-in-law before God.

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.
