“For from the rising of the sun even to its setting, My Name will be great among the Gentiles, and in every place incense is going to be offered to My Name, and a grain offering that is pure; for My Name will be great among the Gentiles,” says Yahweh Sabaoth. (Malachi 1: 11)
Palestinian Violence on the Temple Mount is Part of a Well-Orchestrated Strategy
In an article for Times of Israel, Elhanan Miller wrote,
Less than 24 hours after US Secretary of State John Kerry lauded the idea of placing round-the-clock surveillance cameras on Temple Mount as a means of ensuring calm at the holy site, Palestinian Foreign Minister Riyad al-Maliki on Sunday called the idea “a trap.”
Speaking to Palestinian radio on Sunday, Maliki warned that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s assurances Saturday that Muslims would be allowed to pray on Temple Mount while non-Muslims would only be allowed to visit the site were not credible.
Netanyahu, he said, had promised King Abdullah of Jordan and Kerry that Muslims would be granted unrestricted access to Temple Mount ahead of the month of Ramadan last June, only to restrict the age of men eligible to enter to above 40 or 50.
“We are falling into the same trap once again,” Maliki told the radio station. “Netanyahu cannot be trusted.”
“Who will monitor the screens of these cameras? Who will record the movements of those worshipers wishing to enter? How will these cameras be employed, and will the recordings later be used to arrest young men and worshipers under the pretext of incitement?” Maliki wondered.
On Sunday, Netanyahu vowed once again to leave the status quo on the Temple Mount in place, with Muslim prayer and non-Muslim visits guaranteed.
He said the cameras would help dispel accusations that Israel was breaking the status quo, and expressed hope it would help calm the region.
Palestinians don’t want video cameras on the Temple Mount because round-the-clock video surveillance of their activities will expose their lies.
I’ve been to the Temple Mount many times. Not once have I seen a Jewish person do anything that could be construed as provocation. I’m not naïve enough to believe that it hasn’t happened, but I’ve never seen it.
Without exception, every time I visit the Temple Mount, I see Palestinians doing provocative things. Hatred of Israel and Jewish people is so ingrained in Palestinians that they can’t help themselves.
Like Pavlov’s dog, when Palestinians on the Temple Mount see Jewish people, they salivate.
Jews and Christians praying on the Temple Mount is the issue du jour. The Kotel (a.k.a. the Western Wall) is the next issue in line. Palestinians have staked their claim to it already.
Occasionally, Palestinians on the Temple Mount throw stones at people below who are praying beside the Western Wall. Most of them are Jewish.
If that’s not provocation, I don’t know what is.
I took the video below early in the morning when very little is happening. That’s the safest time of day to visit the Temple Mount:
The moment Jewish people set foot on the Temple Mount, things started hopping. It doesn’t matter what they do. The three young Jewish men in my video were victims of unprovoked Palestinian incitement. The real rabble-rousers were at home sleeping. They don’t report to work until later in the day.
Anyone wearing a kippah or tzitzis is recognized immediately as being Jewish. They are followed around on the Temple Mount by crowds chanting “Allahu Akbar” or, as in the video, groups of Muslim “worshippers” chant that phrase while Jewish people move from point-to-point.
That’s not coincidence. It’s orchestrated provocation of Jewish people.
Actually, it’s more than that. It’s mocking Yahweh.
Why would they chant the name of their god if he was the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob? They wouldn’t.
Those provocateurs were making a point. We don’t all worship the same God, and they know it.
There is only One Elohim. His Name is Yahweh.
I had just walked by that group of Palestinian men. My being there didn’t bother them one bit. If I had been wearing a kippah, things would have been different because that one item would have associated me with Yahweh in their minds.
On their good days, Palestinians on the Temple Mount make pests of themselves by trying relentlessly to con tourists. During the middle of the day when large numbers of Palestinians arrive, it’s like going to a carnival. There are hawkers at every turn.
That’s another reason why I prefer going to the Temple Mount early in the morning.
On bad days, the Temple Mount can become a dangerous place in a heartbeat, especially for Jewish people.
Palestinian leaders carefully plan everything. Outbursts are choreographed like a Broadway play and coordinated with Palestinian media staffers. Nothing is left to chance. Video surveillance threatens to render their strategy ineffective.
The U.N. is in cahoots with Palestinians. See “UN fires Palestinian aid workers over incitement claims”.
The firings were just for show. When the heat dies down, all those who were “fired” will be rehired. That’s how it works. I’ve seen it many times before. It’s part of the Palestinian Two-Step.
Palestinian leaders use the Temple Mount and Al-Aqsa Mosque to stir up trouble. “Al-Aqsa is under attack” is the code phrase they use when it’s time for the attacks to begin. It works every time without fail.
It’s interesting how Palestinians respond when they fear that their lies will be exposed to the world. It’s even more interesting when their lies are exposed, because the world doesn’t seem to care.
Yahweh cares. He holds us accountable for our thoughts and actions.
“Yahweh sees not as man sees: man looks on the outward appearance, but Yahweh looks at the heart.” (1 Samuel 16:7)
If you are a believer, that should matter a lot to you. If you aren’t a believer, one day it will matter to you a lot more than you realize.
Video cameras on the Temple Mount serve the world’s interests.
The mufti is a world-class liar. He gets lots of practice, and his lies are believed by the ignorant stooges who carry out his incitement plans.
The website is loaded with factual information that proves beyond a shadow of a doubt that Yahweh is our Savior and that the Messiah is Yahweh.
I hope you will take a few minutes and explore the website. I also hope you will share it with your friends and family.
It’s time for believers to tell the world about our God by His Name—Yahweh.
Caroline Glick—Column One: Crazy like a fox:
Prime Minister Benyamin Netanyahu is crazy like a fox.
Netanyahu’s assertion on Tuesday before the World Zionist Congress that the founder of the Palestinian people, Haj Amin al-Husseini, convinced Adolf Hitler to eradicate rather than expel the Jews of Europe was an overstatement of Husseini’s role.
No, the Holocaust was not Husseini’s idea.
But he was a partner in perpetrating and promoting it. He also made it inevitable.
As I detailed in my book The Israeli Solution: A One-State Plan for Peace in the Middle East, during the course of Husseini’s meeting with Hitler in Berlin in November 1941, Hitler told the Arab leader of his plan to eradicate European Jewry.
Husseini told Hitler that he would support the Nazis, and rally the Arab world to their side, if Hitler agreed to two conditions: that Hitler support his bid to rule over a postwar Arab state comprised of present-day Iraq, Syria, Jordan, Lebanon and Israel; and that Hitler support the genocide of Middle Eastern Jewry.
As both the official Nazi record and Husseini’s summary of the meeting in his diary report, Hitler accepted Husseini’s demands.
And it makes sense that he did.
U.S. Senator Ted Cruz, conservative Republican firebrand from Texas, is running for president. Up until a few weeks ago, his candidacy was met with indifference as the media and political operatives all dismissed the viability of his candidacy. But that is beginning to change. The voices arguing that Cruz, the favorite of Tea Party fiscal conservatives and Evangelical Christians may have what it takes to win the Republican nomination have multiplied.
Since arriving in Washington four years ago, Cruz has arguably been Israel’s most avid defender in the Senate. During Operation Protective Edge in July 2014, Cruz used his authority as a member of the Senate Foreign Affairs Committee to force the Obama administration to end the Federal Aviation Commission’s ban on US flights to Ben-Gurion Airport. Cruz announced at the time that he would put a hold on all State Department appointments until the administration justified the flight ban.
Rather than defend its position, the administration restored flights to Israel after 36 hours.
Michael Curtis—Murderous Religious Intolerance in the Middle East:
On October 22, 2015, Secretary of State John Kerry, in the context of Palestinian terrorist attacks against Israeli civilians and the Israeli response to them, spoke of the need to end the incitement to violence and to lower the level of tension so that calm could be restored in the area. Speaking to Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu, he asserted that both Israel and the Palestinians are interested in bringing an end to escalation of violence.
It is arguable whether Palestinian leaders are so interested. German chancellor Angela Merkel, speaking on October 21, 2015, must have doubted the Palestinian interest when she said she expected Palestinian Authority head Mahmoud Abbas “to condemn everything that constitutes an act of terrorism. One cannot open talks with Israel if this does not happen.” So far, President Abbas has not done so in any serious fashion.
This indeed will not happen if the Palestinian leaders not only remain unwilling or unable to control young Palestinians from stabbing Jewish civilians, but also concoct stories that it is Israel that is fabricating stories of the stabbings, and even planting knives as fake evidence. The falsehood is reminiscent of the Orson Welles film noir masterpiece Touch of Evil, in which the corrupt and obsessed police captain plants evidence on people to get convictions.
Denis MacEoin—The Shi’ite Leopard: Iran’s Religious Persecution:
- Despite promises of amelioration from Iran’s current President, Hassan Rouhani, the situation for Christians has not improved at all.
- Rouhani, came to power as a proponent of human rights and reform, and has been considered a reformer and moderate in the West ever since. He made countless declarations of his intention to pursue a human rights agenda and guarantee equal rights for all Iranians: Every one of those promises has been broken, yet the U.S. continues to put faith in Rouhani as an honest broker.
- “Christians continue to be arbitrarily arrested… [They] disappear for weeks at a time… Detainees are sometimes told they must to convert to Islam or their families will be killed.” — Ruth Gledhill, journalist
- Even though many Sufi Muslims are fervently pious in their devotion to the faith of the Shi’a, clerics in Qom declared Sufis to be apostates and attempted to expel them from the town and to take over their religious centre.
- The document organized the methods of oppression used to persecute the Baha’is, and contained specific recommendations. When Iranian judges offer the Bahai’s life in exchange for abandonment of faith it is a clear admission of a purely religious motive.
- Why do so many Western states and the UN condemn Israel while bending over backwards to accommodate every demand Iran makes in its bid to build nuclear weapons, expand its terrorist influence, and threaten the West?
David Mikics—The Day We Burned Our Neighbors Alive:
“I can’t sleep at night. I see it as if it were yesterday. … That terrifying scream that probably didn’t last for more than two minutes, it’s still inside me.” The woman speaking these words was 10 years old on July 10, 1941, when she saw her fellow Poles driving their Jewish neighbors into the barn. Schoolboys jeered at their Jewish classmates, hounding them toward death. Mothers wrapped their babies tight as they tried to shield them against the blows. Within minutes nearly all the town’s Jews—hundreds of them, from infants to old people—would be burned alive. The 10-year-old girl at the window watched the townspeople of Jedwabne pour gasoline at the barn’s four corners and set it alight. Then came the scream.
This account comes from Anna Bikont’s book The Crime and the Silence, which appeared in 2004 in Polish and six years later in French (it won the European Book Prize in 2011) but has just now been translated into English by Alissa Valles. In her work as a reporter for the Gazeta Wyborcza, the liberal Polish newspaper, Bikont has done obsessive, heroic work, interviewing witnesses, perpetrators, and survivors of the Jedwabne massacre and similar mass killings of Jews in the nearby towns of Radzilow and Wasosz. She has discovered a bizarre psychological phenomenon: The townspeople of Jedwabne still insist that they are the victims of Jewish slander. The massacre, they say, was perpetrated either by a few thugs, probably people from out of town, or by the Germans.
The most significant and contested gathering of Roman Catholic bishops in the past 50 years formally ended Sunday after three weeks of debate and dispute, but the arguments over who “won” and who “lost” are only beginning.
The synod of 270 cardinals and bishops from around the world was the second in a year called by Pope Francis to address whether Catholicism could adapt its teachings to modern family life. Traditionalists had taken a hard line against any openings, especially after last October’s meeting seemed to point toward possible changes.
While the delegates made hundreds of suggestions on a host of issues, two took center stage: Could the church be more welcoming to gays, and was there a way divorced and remarried Catholics could receive communion without an annulment?
Eman El-Shenawi—Why has Israel gone quiet over ISIS?:
In its first-ever video message in Hebrew, the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) has sent out a threat that “not one Jew will remain in Jerusalem,” amid recently escalating Israeli-Palestinian tensions.
But the video, released on Friday, has so far failed to attract official Israeli attention – in contrast to Israel’s previous persistent finger-pointing at ISIS.
Israeli officials have now noticeably diverted their attention to a deadly surge in Israeli-Palestinian violence, predominantly in Jerusalem and the occupied West Bank. Have Israeli concerns over ISIS now taken a back seat?
Aviad Kleinberg—Too bad Israel’s right is not in power:
The old lines which separated between the right and the left exist in theory, but like the Green Line, which also exists in theory but is actually no longer there, they have become blurred.
Allegedly, there are still Israelis who believe in a withdrawal from the territories, but there are fewer and fewer Israelis who believe it will ever happen; there are still Israelis who believe in peace, but most of them are unprepared to pay its price; there are still Israelis who believe in a secular country, but what they are willing to define as secular includes more and more things which the surprised onlooker would define as national-religious; they still believe, at least theoretically, in universal principles like equality, but the amount of exceptions they are willing to apply to these universal principles would blow our onlooker’s eyebrows off to the top of the Himalayas.
SnyderTalk Comment: I’m beginning to agree. We’ll see. Netanyahu’s comments/concessions concerning the Temple Mount are disconcerting.
Ariel Ben Solomon—Analysis: Russia-Iran alliance tactical, not strategic:
Iran’s military alliance to help keep Syrian President Bashar Assad in power is fraught with underlying tension, which could be exploited by Israel or the US.
Christian Russia and Shi’ite Iran’s revolutionary expansionist agenda and its targeting of Israel is at odds with Russia’s long-term goals in the region.
Russia seeks to solidify Assad’s regime in an Alawite mini-state in the face of a Sunni onslaught funded by Gulf states.
Russia President Vladimir Putin’s military buildup and activity in Syria caught the West off guard just as he did in other hot spots, such as Ukraine and Georgia. Putin is also filling in the vacuum of a retreating US in the region.
Iranian and other allied Shi’ite militia forces including Hezbollah, were not able to prop up Assad’s military alone and needed Russia’s help.
This leaves Russia as the most powerful player in Syria, and because its strategic interests do not entirely coincide with those of Iran’s Shi’ite axis, Israel and the US could seek some kind of deal or accommodation with Russia that would limit the Shi’ite axis.
Burak Bekdil—Turkey’s Thugocracy:
- As in 1908-1912, journalists are at the center of the government’s rage.
- “They [journalists from Turkey’s leading newspaper, Hurriyet] had never had a beating before. Our mistake was that we never beat them in the past. If we had beaten them…” — Abdurrahim Boynukalin, Member of Parliament from the governing AKP Party.
- Last week, Ahmet Hakan, Hurriyet’s popular columnist, who has 3.6 million Twitter followers, was beaten by four men, three of whom happened to be AKP members. Hakan had to undergo surgery. Of the seven men involved in allegedly planning and carrying out the attack, six were immediately released.
- The mob confessed to the police that they had been commissioned to beat Hakan on orders from important men in the state establishment, including the intelligence agency and “the chief.”
- Hundreds of Turkish and Western politicians have publicly condemned the attack on Hakan. Except President Erdogan. Hardly surprising.
Peter Huessy—The End of Arms Control in the Second Nuclear Age?:
- So radical is this proposal that — while Russia, China, Iran and North Korea are arming themselves to the gills and seizing territory — it would reduce America’s nuclear “assets” from over 500 missiles, bombers and submarines to less than a handful of nuclear-armed submarines.
- “To my knowledge, our unilateral disarmament initiatives have done little to promote similar initiatives in our potential adversaries, and at the same time, they have reduced our arms control negotiating leverage.” — Admiral Richard Mies (Ret.), former Commander of the United States Strategic Command
- America’s nuclear deterrent is roughly 35-40 years old. By the time there has been a complete modernization (by 2020) of the Russian nuclear missile force, the U.S. will not have yet built a single new strategic nuclear weapon for its arsenal.
- To help with modernization, Congress and administration needs to get rid of the defense budget caps. Removing them should be America’s #1 arms control and nuclear deterrent priority in the nation.
- Congress should approve, and potential presidential candidates should announce, their support to fund and accelerate the modernization of the U.S. nuclear deterrent, including capabilities that strengthen tactical nuclear deterrence especially in Europe. The modern U.S. nuclear deterrent umbrella over more than 30 NATO allies is one of the prime reasons most of them have not sought to build nuclear weapons themselves — the U.S. makes them feel safe.
- Most importantly, with the North Korean, Chinese and Russian nuclear and missile capabilities in mind, the U.S. and its allies should as quickly as possible protect our country and its electrical grid from missile delivered nuclear electro-magnetic pulse (EMP) threats. The U.S. should also adopt a global missile defense plan, including enhanced U.S.-based missile defenses that can deal with EMP threats. Of particular concern is that the U.S. has no missile radar capability looking south from the continental United States.
SnyderTalk Comment: Yahweh is the real secret behind Israel’s ability to make the desert bloom. He promised that the land and the weather will respond positively to them if they obey Him.
SnyderTalk Comment: It’s worse than discrimination. It’s betrayal of Yahweh.
SnyderTalk Comment: It didn’t take a rocket scientist to figure that out.
SnyderTalk Comment: You get directions to the Temple Mount.
SnyderTalk Comment: That’s a reasonable conclusion.
SnyderTalk Comment: The Cave of Machpelah is Abraham’s and Sarah’s tomb.
SnyderTalk Comment: “Police went to serve Brent Nicholson, who had been arrested earlier in the week for drug trafficking…”
Anyone who believes that criminals have trouble getting their hands on guns and ammunition is mistaken.
Do-gooders who want to restrict or abolish access to guns and ammunition for ordinary citizens are catering to a political base that is woefully ignorant.
Their logic baffles me. A criminal, terrorist, or insane person goes on a rampage, and they start screaming about law-abiding citizens.
They remind me of Palestinians. No matter what happens, they blame Israel and Jewish people.
It doesn’t make any sense, but it works.
SnyderTalk Comment: I’ll bet it’s not aged I oak barrels.
15 “And for the other side shall be hangings of fifteen cubits with their three pillars and their three sockets. 16 For the gate of the court there shall be a screen of twenty cubits, of blue and purple and scarlet material and fine twisted linen, the work of a weaver, with their four pillars and their four sockets. 17 All the pillars around the court shall be furnished with silver bands with their hooks of silver and their sockets of bronze. 18 The length of the court shall be one hundred cubits, and the width fifty throughout, and the height five cubits of fine twisted linen, and their sockets of bronze. 19 All the utensils of the tabernacle used in all its service, and all its pegs, and all the pegs of the court, shall be of bronze.”
SnyderTalk Comment: Read His Name is Yahweh.
- 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)

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.
