Turkey Cuts Water Supply for NE Syria
Are the Palestinians urging peace dialogue with Israel heroes or traitors?
2-21-20. JPost -- Why is the PLO [Palestinians] overseeing a committee responsible for engagement with Israelis? Where are Palestinian nongovernmental organizations that are supposed to be promoting peace and coexistence with Israel? [..] Palestinian officials publicly condemn Arab states for normalizing their ties with Israel while the same officials are engaged in meeting with Israelis to promote peace. [..] Even if the current controversy over normalization with Israel subsides, it’s clear that the smear campaign against those Palestinians who still believe in promoting dialogue with Israelis has succeeded in deterring others from engaging in future “peace” encounters.
Israel’s ‘radical’ critics in U.S. have ‘taken political spotlight’ and increased ‘risks for war’ — AIPAC head
3-2-20, Mondoweiss -- Rightfully many support Israel’s right to exist; but that’s not up for debate– Israel exists! Recently head of the Israel lobby group AIPAC sounded “an alarm” about Israel’s political enemies in the USA taking “the spotlight” in politics. AIPAC ceo, Howard Kohr said that a “radical” movement to end the U.S. special relationship to Israel has “national ambitions” to undermine the bipartisan consensus in favor of Israel. Kohr targeted Bernie Sanders and his surrogates who have criticized Israel, such as Muslim American Linda Sarsour and the ex NY bartender turned Congresswoman Democrat Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
3-7-20, Haaretz -- While Prime MInister Benjamin Netanyahu's explained how he won despite the fact that his party came in second place. The numbers are quite simple. All the parties running in this 3rd election made Netanyahu-related commitments. Those who supported him won 2.2 million votes; those who swore never to sit with the man won 2.33 million. In other words, in the referendum on his rule, which was the main foundation of the election (as in the previous ones), he emerged the loser. Netanyahu’s famous whiteboard is erasable, but the votes of Israeli citizens are not. [Note: very complicated more here]
Turkey Fires Tear Gas At Greece Security Guards Blocking Migrants at Greek Border - WHY IS TURKEY STILL IN NATO?
Tear gas shot by Turkey and Greece over migrants at border
3-7-20, AP -- Turkey's Islamic President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has caused another conflict between Turkey and the European Union over Muslim migrants flooding into Europe from Turkey. After Erdogan's government recently said that it would no longer prevent migrants and refugees from crossing over into Europe; 1000s trekked into Turkey. Now the nation of Greece deployed riot police and border guards to repel people trying to enter the country from the sea or by land. Military clashes erupted Saturday, 3/7/20 between Greek police and Europe-bound migrants gathered on the Turkey side of a border crossing near the Greek village of Kastanies. Like previous confrontations this week, officers in Greece fired tear gas to impede the crowd. THEN THE TURKS military fired tear gas at their Greek counterparts.
Greek coast guard fires shots towards Muslim refugee migrant boats

Standing up to Turkey: Austria’s chancellor is the only EU leader prepared to call out Turkey's President Erdogan over weaponizing migrants to EU
While Brussels has taken its eye off the ball, Austrian Chancellor Sebastian Kurz was paying attention and rightly accused President Recep Tayyip Erdogan as weaponizing thousands of Syrians it's “an attack on the EU.”
In 2016, the EU naïvely entered into a pact with the populist Erdogan to stem what at the time was a rising tide of Syrians by offering €6 billion [$6.7 billion] to help deal with the crisis.
With around 3.7 million refugees from Syria, Afghanistan and other countries now in Turkey, that money was never going to be enough, and when the time came that Erdogan wanted leverage over the EU, he was always going to threaten to turn the migration tap on again.
Which is exactly what he has done.
Though Chancellor Kurz has come down hard on the threat, and no doubt scored some much-needed political points by doing so, you have to wonder where the outrage from Brussels is.
Greece is angered over Turkey’s actions, and the horror of images featuring dead children drowned after falling from boats and coastguards shooting at jam-packed refugee dinghies will only increase the temperature of this mess.
It’s not as if we haven’t been here before. The frontline states in this ongoing saga, Greece, Italy and Spain, extended the offer of help to the war-torn countries of the region to the south on the belief that the EU would come up with a common immigration policy that would share the burden equitably among the bloc’s member states.
But we’re still waiting for this to materialize.
What Erdogan wants instead, when Greece and Italy decided to take matters into their own hands, trying to turn back the people smugglers and their desperate passengers, there is outcry from the liberal democracies over alleged human rights abuses.
So suddenly, these two EU member states find themselves as the bad guys.
Turkey has a point. It did the EU a massive favor in taking in millions of Syrians fleeing a war zone, but the bill it has racked up so far of more than US$30 billion is not something they’ll ever recoup. Erdogan is resigned to that, and it means he can take the moral high ground refusing a paltry offer of a further €1bn from the EU with a sniffy, “Who are you trying to fool? We don’t want this money.”
The days of Turkey courting Western leaders and hoping to join the European Union seem a long way off under Erdogan. If he is trying to convince the EU leaders to help him over Syrian refugees then threatening them is not the smartest move.
In the meantime, the miserable refugees are used as bargaining chips by Erdogan until he can figure a way out of this mire. His hugely optimistic emergency meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin on Thursday, Mar 5, 2020 could hold the key.

Battle of Tours, 732: Muslims vs. Christians
In the years previous, having assessed the situation in Iberia and the Umayyad attack on Aquitaine, Charles Martell came to believe that a professional army, rather than raw conscripts, was needed to defend the realm from invasion.
3-1-20, Daniel Greenfield *-- Abandoning the pretense that the so-called "refugee crisis" is anything more than military colonialism, Turkey's Islamist tyrant, President Tayyip Erdogan has responded to military setbacks during his invasion of Syria by discarding his aid agreement with the EU, while the media under his control urged Muslim migrants to head to Europe ... and they have. The invasion has begun again.
An estimated 30,000 Islamic migrants gathered at border checkpoints after Turkey’s Erdogan claimed to have ‘opened the doors’ to allow as many as 4 million asylum seekers to leave the country. On Feb 29, 2020 tens of thousands of Syrian Islamic refugees massed on the Turkish borders with Greece and Bulgaria, hurling rocks at border guards trying to cut through razor wire. Syrians, Iranians, Iraqis, Pakistanis and Moroccans – demanded admission. The only thing these migrants have in common is their Muslim religion and its tradition of conquest by invasion and colonialism. They're not fleeing a civil war and they're mostly military-age men invading Europe and parts beyond. Obviously Greece and Bulgaria are outmatched and a repeat of history when these countries were the traditional targets of the ancient Islamic Ottoman Empire. [Erdogan believes he is the New Sultan Caliphate of the revived Ottomans]
If there's a role for NATO, it's not in Syria; it's protecting Europe from this Islamist invasion. NATO member  Turkey's President Erdogan insists he will not back down that his country could not handle another wave of refugees from northern Syria. ‘We opened the doors. We will not close those doors. Why? Because the EU should keep its promises.’
Syria doesn't have much of a functioning military so Turkey is actually fighting Russia, Iran and its proxies. It's Jihadist vs. Jihadist [Sunni Muslims vs Shiite Muslims] and they're welcome to fight each other Alien vs. Predator style. Turkey wants European and American help; and it's using this invasion as overt blackmail.
There needs to be a naval blockade to stop the invasion. These migrant invasions are WW3 in slow motion. And they can be stopped with little danger at Europe's borders. If they get inside, then we end up moving closer to days when a European version of ISIS is in control of Europe's arsenal and resources.

Turkey President Tayyip Erdogan Gives "Final Warning" Before Launching Gog-Magog War Against "Edom" Russia
Apostle John's vision: "The sixth angel poured out his vial upon the great river Euphrates; and the water thereof was dried up, that the way of the kings of the east [Shiite Muslims from Iran] might be prepared. And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast [Coalition of Islamic nations], and out of the mouth of the false prophet [Mohammad]. For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty. Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he that watcheth... And he gathered them together into a place called in the Hebrew tongue 'Armageddon'."
Turkey has threatened to launch an “imminent” operation in Syria’s Idlib Province if Damascus fails to withdraw behind Ankara’s military positions, sparking a warning from Russia. Turkey in bible prophecy Magog is a man who settled in the land of Turkey. Ezekiel 38:2 More here
- 2-20-20, Breaking Israel News -- After failed talks with Russian officials over the intensifying military conflict in Syria, Turkey’s President Recep Tayyib Erdogan issued his “final warnings” to Moscow. Turkish troops with heavy weapons entered northern Idlib Syria while Turkish artillery shelled Syrian army positions. The Russian air force came to the aid of the Syrian army, bombing Turkish positions. Fifty Syrian soldiers and members of Iranian-backed Shiite [Iran?] militias were killed in the battle and Turkey lost two soldiers. The Turkish military and their Islamist rebel allies also destroyed five tanks and four armored vehicles belonging to the pro-Assad troops. Sixteen Turkish military casualties and 50+ Syrian soldiers were killed in retaliation.

"...people began to look at Islam soon they believed that Islam never promoted violence, that Islam is completely against this kind of violence.

This is totally false! All through history Islam [Muslims] has always been warmongering killers. Peace loving non-Muslims are now deluded as they - with generous hearts - want to help the killers. They blame all sorts of things on the 'reason for their killing.' Remember Obama's gal Marie Harf who said in 2015 they just 'need jobs' others say they need love. Ridiculous.

Islamic Leaders aka 'Mullah's' War With Each Other
“... I set thy face against Gog, the land of Magog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal, and prophesy against them.”
The beast with seven heads introduced at Revelation 13:1 represents a coalition of Israel enemy Islamic nations. It has authority, power, and a leader called the Caliphate. Erdogan of Turkey has claimed that title. Thus, the wild beast of Revelation 13:2 represents a composite political organization. (Daniel 7:2-8, 17, 23)
2-13-20, * -- Struan Stevenson has laid out a clear-eyed picture of the collapsing Islamic Republic of Iran that is as good as anything you’ll read.
So it’s a civil war within Iran [aka Persia], fought between the different elements of the Islamic ruling classes. Since the spoils of this war will be measured in terms of government posts and bank accounts around the world, it’s a very intense struggle.
Under the leadership of Iran's President Rouhani, the Islamic Shiite Republic has executed more than four thousand persons, including women and children, thereby making it the leading per capita executioner in the world. Contrary to the myth of Rouhani’s “moderation,” he has made Alireza Avaei the Minister of Justice. Avaei has been singled out as a leading terrorist for his role as the killer of political prisoners in 1988, when more than thirty thousand followers of the MEK opposition movement and their friends were slaughtered.
Someone said: "The regime gave them an economy that's plummeting, a government that has invaded every aspect of their lives, [Revelation 13:17] whether that's your private life, your religious rights, your everything. You've had many celebrities defecting... This is a really strong signal to show that people are no longer buying in."
Although the Iranian people protests have been overwhelmingly peaceful, at least two acts of resistance against the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps . The firebombing of the Guards base in Tehran on January 19, 2020 and the following day a similar attack on the Headquarters of State Security Forces in Mashad on Jan. 20, 2020.
The clock is ticking on the Iranian regime. Any one of several factors could throw the country into turmoil. Khamenei is eighty years old, and his death could be a precipitating event.

Israel Peace Plan Analyzed
God Warned About Dividing Israel's Land
- #1 - 'No such thing as a Palestinian people' as such there is no such thing as a state of Palestine [Pastor Farag grew up as a Arab Muslim in Israel being told he was a 'Palestinian' ..] - Israel was named in 70 AD after the Jews enemy the 'Philistines' ergo the name ... appx 1994 Yassar Arafat who was an Egyptian started the entire 'Palestinian thing!' - the nation of Israel was reborn in 1948.
- #2 - the Arabs only want total destruction of the Jews and Israel - they don't want to co-habit in the land.
- #3 - Not only did Yassar Arafat reject Bill Clinton's peace plan of 1998 when the Arabs were offered 75% of Jerusalem they also rejected a state of 'Palestine'
- #4 - one illegitimate claim the Muslims make that Jerusalem's Islamic al-aqsa mosque on Solomon's Temple Mount is their holy site but: [strange that when they pray there they direct their back sides to it.
- #5 - Jerusalem is the true LEGITIMATE capitol of Israel only for the Jewish state of Israel beause almighty God literally deemed it so! In the Book of Genesis, God appeared to Abraham and said: “I will assign this land to your offspring” (Genesis 12:3, 15:18-21; Psalm 122:6) [no where in the Muslim book 'Koran' is Jerusalem mentioned even once - yet it appears over 600 times in the Holy Bible].
End the Hoax:
There Are No Palestinians
The “Palestinian people” is a propaganda fiction.
It’s time to stop playing along.
King Hussein of Jordan put it most succinctly of all in 1981: “The truth is that Jordan is Palestine and Palestine is Jordan.”
Nonetheless, the myth has taken hold, and it is now widely taken for granted, in our age that has little historical memory and scant interest in gaining more, that the Palestinians are a genuine nationality, and are the indigenous people of the land that Israel illegally occupies.
This is a propaganda success that Josef Goebbels and the editors of Pravda would have envied, and it became the foundation for more. Having established the Palestinians as a tiny indigenous people whose land was stolen by rapacious, well-heeled, and oppressive foreigners, it was time to return to the negotiating table – not in order to achieve any genuine accord with Israel, but to exploit the victimhood status of the new tiny people they had invented in order to win valuable concessions from the Israelis.
If all this were recognized, the onus would be on Jordan, Syria, Lebanon and the other Arab states for not welcoming their Palestinian Arab brethren. The contention that the Palestinians are a people who must have a state would lose much of its force. Returning to reality and discarding propaganda fantasies can never have a downside. It’s time to take that step. More here

At the end of 1920, the "Palestinian people" was artificially carved out of the Arab population of "Greater Syria."
Gingrich said, "I feel quite confident that an amazing number of Israelis found it nice to have an American tell the truth about the war they are in the middle of, and the casualties they are taking and the people around them who say, ‘They do not have a right to exist and we want to destroy them.'"

US President Trump & Israel Prime Minister Netanyahu Unveil Precepts in 'Peace Plan'
Full video about 48 minutes here
See Prime Min Netanyahu at 30 min mark
Today, Tuesday, January 28, 2020 President Donald Trump with Israel's Prime Minister Netanyahu at the White House announced the plan for peace in the Middle East. [Trump met with challenger to Netanyhu's election - Benny Gantz yesterday, 1-27-20]. Proposing that Israel and the region will be safer [skirting complaints that Palestinians have already rejected the proposal and didn’t take part in drafting the plan or were invited to this current event]. The President said this plan:
- Presents a “contiguous” [neighboring - see map below] territory for a Palestinian state once conditions are met
- Demands “rejection of terrorism”
- Opens a “transition” to a two-state solution
- Jerusalem Israel’s “undivided capitol”
- Will have a territory destined for Palestinian control that would go undeveloped for four years to give space for talks with Israel to progress
- Israel is willing to make territorial sacrifices [again land for peace!]
- Palestinians will have twice the land
- $50 billion dollars offered for future self sustaining Palestinian people – stop charity
- No Jews or Muslims would be removed from their homes
- Calls on the Palestinian Authority to:
- adopt “basic laws” on protecting all human rights
- fight corruption
- stop malign activities of Hamas and Islamic Jihad
- end financial compensation to terrorists
- stop incitement against the Jewish People of Israel
- recognize Israel as the official 'Jewish State'
However, even before the plan was released, the proposal was criticized by Palestinians and many Mideast analysts for being biased in Israel’s favor and thus unlikely to end the centuries old conflict. And the notion of an “undivided” Jerusalem will anger Palestinians, who have long sought to make East Jerusalem the capital of their future state.
The plan gives the Palestinians less than they have been offered in previous plans that they rejected, leaving its prospects for success slim. A Palestinian official Secretary-General of the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) Saeb Erekat has threatened that the Ramallah-based Palestinian Authority would withdraw from key provisions of the Oslo Accords if US President Trump unveils his so-called “Deal of the Century.”
Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas is due to convene Palestinian leaders to discuss the plan after its presentation and to release a statement. His administration has also called for an emergency session of the Arab League in Cairo on Saturday, Feb 1, 2020. Abbas didn't immediately comment on the plan, but called for Palestinian demonstrators to protest in a "Day of Rage" as their response.
Israeli security forces prepare for more violent confrontations stemming from disapproval of the 'peace plan.'

Pres Trump Invites Israel's PM Netanyahu and Benny Gantz to White House to Unveil Peace Plan, January 28, 2020
But there will be no peace ...
"In those times there was no peace to him that went out, nor to him that came in, but great vexations were upon all the inhabitants of the countries."
1-25-20, ForeignPolicy.com -- On Tuesday, January 28, 2020 the U.S. President Donald Trump is scheduled to host Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his political rival Benny Gantz at the White House. The purpose of the meeting is to unveil some of the details of the Middle East peace plan. PM Netanyahu and Gantz both have accepted the invitation.
In June 2019 - in Bahrain's Middle East Peace to Prosperity Conference, Jared Kushner, Trump’s son-in-law and a White House adviser, announced the first part of the plan—expanding foreign investment in the Muslim aka "Palestinian" enclaves. The meetings were boycotted by Muslim/Palestinian officials. One of the Muslim leaders in Israel, Mahmoud Abbas and other leaders were not invited as they have refused to discuss the plan since the Jewish city of Jerusalem has been recognized by many nations as Israel’s capitol. The US and others have moved their embassies there; in 2018 the USA was the first.
The Palestinians rebuffed attempts to discuss any peace plan with Israel; they were attempted through European intermediaries and are expected to reject the plan once it becomes public. Jeremiah 6:14; Ezekiel 13:16; Matthew 13:43

The Catholic parishioner bride Martha Bulus was killed by Boko Haram extremists on Dec. 26 in Nigeria’s northeast Borno state. Miss Bulus’ wedding was scheduled to take place on New Year’s Eve in Adamawa state.
British Soldier Lee Rigby Beheaded in London Street
5-22-13, Military.com -- A brazen, brutal beheading near a military barracks in London by Islamic fanatic murdered soldier Lee Rigby (2013 London machete attack). British Army soldier, Fusilier Lee Rigby of the Royal Regiment of Fusiliers, was beheaded by Muslim Michael Adebolajo.

The Apostle John's vision: "I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon. 12And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed. 13And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men, 14And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, [732 AD Charles Martell] and did live. 15And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed. And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads."
"And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed:
and all the world wondered after the beast." Revelation 13:3
All of Spain had once been a Visigothic kingdom, but the land had been completely conquered in 714 by Musa, son of Nusair, the Muslim governor of Africa; it had taken the Muslims only three years to do.
In 732 AD France Charles Martel Defeated the Hordes of Islam
By 732 AD in northeastern France in October of 732 AD Commander Charles Martel of the Franks, and likely equal in number to the Muslim army fought General Abdul Rahman Al Ghafiqi, who commanded the Umayyad army that had a large amount of cavalry. Charles’ force was well trained and fought with the equipment and close order style that echoed the hoplite formations of the ancient Greeks. He occupied an elevated position and used the trees and rough terrain in front of his infantry to protect them from cavalry charges. Reinforcements arrived for the Muslims, but Charles had arguably better reinforcements. Many of his veterans, who had personally fought under him came in huge numbers. These professional fighting men would have been amongst the best and most experienced in all Europe. Their arrival meant that the main battle was at hand after a week of skirmishing. [..skip]
The Muslims were defeated and the survivors retreated to their camp in the middle of the night, carrying mostly their prized loot. The next morning, Charles was deeply concerned that his enemies were setting up an ambush.
After extensive scouting, it was discovered that the Muslim enemy had fled; forced to withdraw back into Spain. Charles was granted the nickname of Charles “the Hammer” for crushing his enemies and both he and Odo, who had won the first great victory and served at Tours, would be considered heroes of Christianity killing off the beast of hordes of Muslims as they tried to invade Europe.

Egypt: Twenty-One Christians Beheaded by Islamic Terror Group Isis
2-15-15, NBCNews -- The U.S. condemned the video released by Isis of the beheading of 21 Egyptian Christians kidnapped in Libya, explicitly blaming ISIS-affiliated terrorists Sunday for the "wanton killing of innocents." The video called "A Message signed with blood to the nation of the cross" and was released by the group’s Al-Hayat Media Center, according to Flashpoint Intelligence, a global security firm and NBC News consultant.
‘Opposite of Benghazi’: Obama’s weak response motivated Trump to strike Iran's Gen Soleimani
1-12-20, WashTimes -- Pres Trump calls his military clash with Iran over a besieged U.S. embassy in Iraq “the opposite of Benghazi” & people close to him say it’s impossible to overstate how deeply the president was influenced by the fatal 2012 terrorist attack on the U.S. facilities in Libya. Pres Obama’s weak response with no response for 13 hours causing Ambassador Stephens and 3 other Americans to be killed.
So when Iran-backed forces attacked the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad and set fires to the walls of the compound, Pres Trump quickly ordered a contingent of Marines to defend the complex. Then he ordered a drone strike in Baghdad that killed Iranian Maj. Gen. Qassem Soleimani, a designated terrorist believed to have plotted the embassy assault and to have been planning more attacks on Americans. More here
Iran does have a role to play in the end times. History of Iran and its neighborhood, as it relates to biblical history:
The prophet Jeremiah prophesied that Elam, a nation east of Babylon, west of Persia and south of Media would be conquered and then rise to power again. True to that prophecy, Babylon conquered Elam in 596 BC. However, then Persia, under Cyrus the Great, took control of that area, and the Elamites and Medes became part of the Persian Empire. The Medo-Persian Empire ascended to power and conquered Babylon in 539 BC, fulfilling the prophecy of Isaiah 21:2. This happened during the time of Daniel; in fact, Daniel later resided “in the province of Elam” in Persia. Persia is the setting for the book of Esther and the first part of Nehemiah... More here
John Haller reports ...
1-12-20, America, Israel and Missiles, oh my! Isaiah 2:3-4
Unless you've been living under a rock, or cowering in your "safe space" you cannot help but realize that the convergence of events has taken a major adreneline shot in the arm over the past week. With the precision strike on one of the most notorious Iranian generals in history [Soleimani], eventually relegating what was left of him to room temperature, there has been a variety of responses.
While the everyday Iranian people are celebrating his demise, the regime, and their allies in the US mainstream media, are lamenting his death in surreal tributes and accolades.
Unlike the Bin Laden death, which the American media celebrated and lauded praise on Obama...
... the tone of this death has taken on a regretful, remorseful apology tour with unprecedented worship of this violent General.
It is a despicable display of sympathy for one of the world's worst humans, while the vitriol and rhetoric that should have been directed the brutal Iranian regime ... it was redirected toward President Trump who authorized the strike. It is a surreal world we live in...and who knows where this is going next. What we do know, and are assured of, is that our Lord is in full control of the affairs of men, and He will not leave or forsake us.
Don't fret and worry...while John Haller will share his critical analysis of the current state of the world, do not despair. These are the things that must happen before we see the Lord Jesus' arrive in glory to judge the earth and her people for the transgressions they commit. Jeremiah 31:31-34
Full Transcript President Trump's Remarks
"Iran appears to be standing down...."
Regarding Iran Military Action and
US Disposal of Iran's General Soleimani
United States White House
Washington DC, USA
President Donald J. Trump:
"As long as I am President of the United States, Iran will never be allowed to have a nuclear weapon.
Good morning. I’m pleased to inform you the American people should be extremely grateful and happy that no Americans were harmed in last night’s attack by the Iranian regime. We suffered no casualties, all of our soldiers are safe, and only minimal damage was sustained at our military bases.
Our great American forces are prepared for anything. Iran appears to be standing down, which is a good thing for all parties concerned and a very good thing for the world.
No American or Iraqi lives were lost because of the precautions taken, the dispersal of forces, and an early warning system that worked very well. I salute the incredible skill and courage of America’s men and women in uniform.
For far too long — all the way back to 1979, to be exact — nations have tolerated Iran’s destructive and destabilizing behavior in the Middle East and beyond. Those days are over. Iran has been the leading sponsor of terrorism, and their pursuit of nuclear weapons threatens the civilized world. We will never let that happen.
Last week, we took decisive action to stop a ruthless terrorist from threatening American lives. At my direction, the United States military eliminated the world’s top terrorist, Qasem Soleimani. As the head of the Quds Force, Soleimani was personally responsible for some of the absolutely worst atrocities.
He trained terrorist armies, including Hezbollah, launching terrorist strikes against civilian targets. He fueled bloody civil wars all across the region. He viciously wounded and murdered thousands of U.S. troops, including the planting of roadside bombs that maim and dismember their victims.
Soleimani directed the recent attacks on U.S. personnel in Iraq that badly wounded four service members and killed one American, and he orchestrated the violent assault on the U.S. embassy in Baghdad. In recent days, he was planning new attacks on American targets, but we stopped him.
Soleimani’s hands were drenched in both American and Iranian blood. He should have been terminated long ago. By removing Soleimani, we have sent a powerful message to terrorists: If you value your own life, you will not threaten the lives of our people.
As we continue to evaluate options in response to Iranian aggression, the United States will immediately impose additional punishing economic sanctions on the Iranian regime. These powerful sanctions will remain until Iran changes its behavior.
In recent months alone, Iran has seized ships in international waters, fired an unprovoked strike on Saudi Arabia, and shot down two U.S. drones.
Iran’s hostilities substantially increased after the foolish Iran nuclear deal was signed in 2013, and they were given $150 billion, not to mention $1.8 billion in cash. Instead of saying “thank you” to the United States, they chanted “death to America.” In fact, they chanted “death to America” the day the agreement was signed.
Then, Iran went on a terror spree, funded by the money from the deal, and created hell in Yemen, Syria, Lebanon, Afghanistan, and Iraq. The missiles fired last night at us and our allies were paid for with the funds made available by the last administration. The regime also greatly tightened the reins on their own country, even recently killing 1,500 people at the many protests that are taking place all throughout Iran.
The very defective JCPOA expires shortly anyway, and gives Iran a clear and quick path to nuclear breakout. Iran must abandon its nuclear ambitions and end its support for terrorism. The time has come for the United Kingdom, Germany, France, Russia, and China to recognize this reality.
They must now break away from the remnants of the Iran deal -– or JCPOA –- and we must all work together toward making a deal with Iran that makes the world a safer and more peaceful place. We must also make a deal that allows Iran to thrive and prosper, and take advantage of its enormous untapped potential. Iran can be a great country.
Peace and stability cannot prevail in the Middle East as long as Iran continues to foment violence, unrest, hatred, and war. The civilized world must send a clear and unified message to the Iranian regime: Your campaign of terror, murder, mayhem will not be tolerated any longer. It will not be allowed to go forward.
Today, I am going to ask NATO to become much more involved in the Middle East process. Over the last three years, under my leadership, our economy is stronger than ever before and America has achieved energy independence. These historic accompliments [accomplishments] changed our strategic priorities. These are accomplishments that nobody thought were possible. And options in the Middle East became available. We are now the number-one producer of oil and natural gas anywhere in the world. We are independent, and we do not need Middle East oil.
The fact that we have this great military and equipment, however, does not mean we have to use it. We do not want to use it. American strength, both military and economic, is the best deterrent.
Three months ago, after destroying 100 percent of ISIS and its territorial caliphate, we killed the savage leader of ISIS, al-Baghdadi, who was responsible for so much death, including the mass beheadings of Christians, Muslims, and all who stood in his way. He was a monster. Al-Baghdadi was trying again to rebuild the ISIS caliphate, and failed.
Tens of thousands of ISIS fighters have been killed or captured during my administration. ISIS is a natural enemy of Iran. The destruction of ISIS is good for Iran, and we should work together on this and other shared priorities.
Finally, to the people and leaders of Iran: We want you to have a future and a great future — one that you deserve, one of prosperity at home, and harmony with the nations of the world. The United States is ready to embrace peace with all who seek it.
I want to thank you, and God bless America.
Thank you very much."

1-8-20, Fox News -- Reportedly Iran fired dozens of missiles aimed at bases in Iraq in retaliation for the American strike that killed Iranian general Qasem Soleimani last week. Iran may have chosen to just send a face saving message rather than take significant enough action to provoke a substantial US military response. Many believe the current action is possibly a signal that the Iranian administration's current desire is to calm tensions. Iranian missiles landed close to the US consulate in Erbil, but didn’t target the consulate itself, though the belief is that they could have...
Obama's Benghazi in Baghdad
In both Benghazi and Baghdad, Islamist terror militias who we thought were our allies turned on the United States. In both cases, there was nothing surprising or unexpected about this inevitable development to anyone except foreign policy experts and the media. Obama had helped birth the Islamic State by backing Iran's takeover of Iraq. Forced to fight ISIS, he doubled down on the same strategy. And that completed the takeover.
And, in both Benghazi and Baghdad, the Obama administration's policy of cultivating Islamic terrorists had come home to roost. The current Islamists who attacked the US embassy in Baghdad were not Trump's allies, but Obama's allies. When in 2011 the head of Badr Brigade of Iraq visited the White House … it was Obama’s not Trump’s. The close IRGC ally was welcomed by Obama, and played a role in the current embassy attack. Trump listed the IRGC, Iran's global terror hub as a terror group - Obama resisted it dating back to his time in the Senate [2005-08].
Once in the White House, Obama's policies so empowered and enabled the IRGC that in one of the most infamous incidents in American history, members of the Islamic terror group captured and humiliated American sailors. There is little doubt that the IRGC was the hidden hand behind the embassy attack in Baghdad through its PMF proxies.
The rise of ISIS and the attack on our embassy in Baghdad had their roots in Obama's backing for Iraq's Shiite dominated government. [..] Obama wanted to pull out of Iraq as soon as possible. His plan for a quick pullout was to allow Iran a free hand in Baghdad. The Sunni Islam tribal leaders who had made the 'awakening' against Al Qaeda possible were ignored by Obama when they came to D.C. seeking support against Iran.
While the media went on touting Obama's incredible successes in Iraq, the country split into two terror camps. While the Popular Mobilization Forces rolled up Shiite areas, Al Qaeda in Iraq reinvented itself as ISIS.
Unlike President Trump, Obama chose not to hit ISIS hard. Instead, after Iraq's military collapsed, his administration's anti-ISIS strategy relied heavily on supporting the Shiite PMF militias which included embedded Iranian forces.
Iran's takeover of Iraq, like its involvement in Yemen's civil war, in Lebanon, Syria and Gaza [in Israel] were funded by the wages of Obama's nuclear sellout. The billions that Obama directly and indirectly handed to the terrorists of Tehran were used to fund soft and hard influence across the region.
The Iran deal didn't just mean that the terror regime was able to continue building up its nuclear program, but that it could increase its financial commitments to the Islamic terror group Hamas [in Gaza], help build up Hezbollah in Lebanon, the Houthis in Yemen and the PMFs in Iraq. [..]
Under Obama, billions in foreign currency were illegally flown into Iran on unmarked cargo planes, then Pres Trump cut off the cash.
The cash crunch not only weakened Iran's regime, where fresh protests arose, but its terror networks, including in Iraq, began facing their own cash shortages. And so Iran's rulers, their IRGC hidden hand, and their Islamist PMF proxies decided to send America and the protesters a message. [..]
Who helped build up the Islamic terrorist infrastructure? The Obama administration did. Beyond the cash shipments to Iran and the sanctions relief, the PMFs benefited from US foreign aid directed through Iraq's Interior Ministry. Even as Iraq's Interior Ministry was headed by a Badr leader trained by Iranian forces who had been arrested for smuggling explosives used to attack American soldiers, US foreign aid kept flowing through an Iraqi ministry run by terrorists.
The Obama administration may be history, but the damage it did still reverberates through the region as the Islamist forces it unleashed continues to tear apart nations and threatens American lives.

In Nov 1979 Jimmy Carter was the Dem US President; a group of Iranians stormed the U.S. Embassy in Tehran holding FIFTY-TWO Americans hostage for 444-days. Carter ordered a military operation involving an elite rescue team that failed when their helicopter crashed into a transport plane, killing eight American servicemen. Amid constant media coverage, Carter’s weakness & failure to resolve the hostage crisis was one of many reasons that Republican Ronald Reagan became the US President causing Carter not to serve a second term. Soon after Reagan's election in Nov 1980, the Iranians agreed to release the Americans just minutes after Reagan delivered his inaugural address on January 20, 1981. Strength works!
Obama paid Iran $400 million ransom for American hostages
8-2-16, WashingtonTimes -- In January 2016 Obama secretly airlifted $400 million in cash to Iran it the same time the Iranians were finally releasing four jailed Americans, he tried to argue it wasn't ransom. [chuckle] The Wall Street Journal, citing U.S. and European officials and congressional sources, reported that Obama procured the money from central banks in Switzerland and the Netherlands. The cash was stacked on wooden pallets and flown to Tehran in an unmarked cargo plane. The cash was paid in foreign currency because any transaction with Iran in U.S. dollars is illegal under U.S. law.
Obama White House Caught Secretly Airlifting $1.7 Billion US
8-3-16, ZeroHedge -- What candidate Donald Trump proclaimed as the worst deal ever made, may just have become "worst-er." The truth behind the US-Iran nuclear deal, was as WSJ reports that John Kerry and the Obama ordered $1.7 bn of cash to be airlifted the rogue Islamic terror nation of Iran. Obama claimed the events were separate [$400 mill and $1.3 bill], but acknowledged the cash was used as leverage [aka quid pro quo] for the release of American hostages [aka ransom!]. The remaining $1.3 billion represented interest on Iranian cash the U.S. held since the 1970s. More here from LA Times
4-6-15, wnd.COM -- When President Obama announced a "framework" nuclear agreement with Iran – which Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu warned threatens the very existence of Israel – few noticed the significance of the date. On the Jewish calendar in 2015; April 1 coincided with Nisan 13, the date in history when a Persian [modern day Iran] king signed an agreement calling for the destruction of the Jews. "King Obama has issued his decree putting the Jewish nation at risk of annihilation on the very same day that King Ahasuerus' scribes came together and issued their statement to the rulers of every people of every province according to the writing thereof, and to every people after their language and sent letters by posts into all the king's provinces, to destroy, to kill, and to cause to perish, all Jews, both young and old, little children and women, in one day." [..] The outcome may already be written down! The Bible records the Jew hater of the Bible's book of Esther, Haman was hanged on the very scaffold he had prepared for Mordecai, a Jew, and the king dispatched a letter exposing Haman's plot, instructing Jews to defend themselves.

Iraq: US Embassy Under Attack
On Sunday, 12/30/19 approximately 25 Islamic terror group Hezbollah fighters died when the US bombed bases associated with the Kataib Hezbollah militia in western Iraq and eastern Syria. The current protests outside the US Embassy in Iraq apparently are in response to the US action against Hezbollah and orchestrated by Islamic 'Shiite' [Iranian] Protesters who managed to break through the main gate of the Baghdad embassy.
12-31-19, Baghdad Iraq gunfire reported after Iraqi Shiite [Irainian] militia supporters storm compound and started fires. US President Donald Trump sending additional military support to the U.S. embassy. Shiite militiamen and their supporters broke into the US embassy 100 acre compound smashing a main door and setting fire to a reception area. American guards fired tear gas at protesters while columns of smoke rose over the embassy grounds. A reporter at the scene saw flames rising from inside the compound and at least three U.S. soldiers on the roof of the main embassy building.
Pres Trump blamed Iran for the embassy breach and called on Iraq to protect the diplomatic mission. He said in a tweet: “Iran killed an American contractor, wounding many. We strongly responded, and always will. Now Iran is orchestrating an attack on the U.S. Embassy in Iraq. They will be held fully responsible. In addition, we expect Iraq to use its forces to protect the Embassy, and so notified!”
A U.S. defense official told Fox News 100 Marines are being sent to the embassy to bolster security. A U.S. Apache helicopter gunship also flew over the embassy and dropped flares in a “show of force,” attempting to disperse the crowd. A US spokesperson said: “As the president said, Iran is orchestrating this attack, and they will be held fully responsible. It will be the president’s choice how and when we respond to their escalation.”
In 2003 under Republican President George W. Bush the United States invaded Iraq and overthrew the government of Saddam Hussein. The U.S. then established diplomatic relations with the new Iraqi government. The old U.S. embassy was deemed unsafe for American diplomats and remained deserted so a temporary embassy was established in the Republican Palace. Then on 100 acres in 2005 construction began on the decadent Baghdad US 'palace.' The completion target date was September 2007. Pres Bush sent Congress an FY2005 emergency funding request for the embassy in Iraq. In 2013 Business Insider reported that the cost of the embassy had surpassed $750 million. The embassy formally opened behind schedule in January 2009 with a staff of over 16,000 people. In 2012 Obama requested more than $100 million for a "massive" upgrade to the compound. As of 2006, construction was being led by First Kuwaiti Trading & Contracting.  [Didn't even give the job to American contractors??] The embassy features extensive housing and infrastructure facilities in addition to diplomatic buildings as follows. Source Wikipedia
- Six apartment buildings for employees
- Water and waste treatment facilities
- A power station
- Two "major diplomatic office buildings"
- Recreation, including a gym, cinema, several tennis courts and an Olympic-size interior swimming pool as well as one outside
SICK! As Fighters Stormed Baghdad Embassy, Democrats Blamed Trump for Iran Militia Attack, Some Cheered for Benghazi Replay
12-31-19, A leading Never-Trumper attacked President Trump even as Iranian backed militias were storming the U.S. embassy in Baghdad, with several blaming Trump–not Iran–for the attack while others cheered for a Benghazi replay. It was so bad that a Hillary Clinton State Department/Obama NSC alum called on one Democrat group to delete a Benghazi tweet about the Baghdad attack.
On Sunday, 12/30/19 approximately 25 Islamic terror group Hezbollah fighters died when the US bombed bases associated with the Kataib Hezbollah militia in western Iraq and eastern Syria.

God Warned the Nations:
DON’T DIVIDE THE LAND OF ISRAEL
12-17-19, Presstv.com -- A Lebanese TV network has published what it reported to be a draft of US President Donald Trump’s controversial deal on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, which envisages the establishment of a “New Palestine,” with occupied Jerusalem al-Quds remaining under mostly Israeli control and Saudi Arabia replacing Jordan as custodian of Al-Aqsa Mosques. Mohammad Bin Salman Al Saud says the Muslims/Arabs aka "Palestinians" in Israel should accept peace deal or 'shut up!' Reportedly, if:
- Israel rejects the deal, the US will end economic support for the regime.
- The Islamic terror group ruling Gaza "Hamas" and the PLO oppose the agreement, Washington will end all financial support it provides to Palestinians and prevent funding provided by other nations.
- The PLO accepts the plan and Hamas or the Islamic Jihad dismiss it, then the two groups would bear the responsibility of their decision.
- Any military confrontation between Israel and Hamas, the US will still support Israel.
- “The Day of the Lord is coming; surely it is near” — “Blow a trumpet in Zion, and sound and alarm on My holy mountain! Let all the inhabitants of the land tremble, for the Day of the Lord is coming; surely it is near.” (Joel 2:1)
- “Return to Me,” says the Lord — “‘Yet even now,’ declares the Lord, ‘return to Me with all your heart, and with fasting, weeping and mourning; and rend your heart and not your garments.’ Now return to the Lord your God for He is gracious and compassionate, slow to anger and abounding in lovingkindness and relenting of evil.” (Joel 2:12-13).
- Do not divide the Land of Israel — In my message about the final chapter of the Book of Joel, I explained the warning to the nations that the Lord gives. I focused in particular on Joel 3:2 (which is 4:2 in the Hebrew Bible) in which the Lord says, “I will gather all the nations and bring them down to the valley of Jehoshaphat. Then I will enter into judgment with them there on behalf of My people and My inheritance, Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations; and they have divided up My land.” The Bible is very clear: the Lord is going to judge all the nations for dividing up the Land of Israel. Let the United Nations and the United States and the European Union and the Palestinian Authority and the Israeli government itself be warned. More here

Weekly Update on the Jewish State
“In their case the god of this world has blinded the minds of the unbelievers, to keep them from seeing the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God.”
12-5-19, * -- US NEWS magazine for the second consecutive year has ranked the Jewish state of Israel the 8th most powerful nation in the world. Amazing that such a small nation, with only 9.2 million people, that has been in a state of war since its birth only 72 years ago in 1948; to be so named. [Clearly supernatural blessing from God!]
Israel is still in a very uncertain political deadlock. Next week, we should know if and when there’ll be a third election this year. The indictment documents against Prime Minister Netanyahu were submitted to the speaker of the Knesset parliament and from what we know; it’ll be a very long trial with hundreds of witnesses.
The UN and EU are displaying a new level of hypocrisy against Israel this week. The annual UN resolution against Israel passed again although gaining unexpected defense from 13 nations. Five anti-Israel resolutions passed in the General Assembly in a full-day session connected to the United Nations’ “Palestine Day,” held on Nov. 29, 2019. However, they cannot discern difference between good and evil as no condemnation to the terror states of Iran and Lebanon: [2 Corinthians 4:4; Isaiah 5:20]
- In Iran: The current political unrest has seen the regime:
- Massacred over 450 people in Iran and many more in Iraq
- Injured more than 2,000 in Iran and many more in Iraq
- Detained at least 7,000 in Iran and many more in Iraq
- What was the response from the UN Human Rights Council?
- ZERO emergency sessions
- ZERO condemnations
- ZERO fact-finding missions
- What was the response from the UN Human Rights Council?
- The more shocking thing is that six European nations say they will join a fledgling financial system to bypass U.S. sanctions against Iran, challenging U.S. President Donald Trump days before he meets with NATO leaders in London.
- In a joint statement Belgium, Denmark, Finland, the Netherlands, Norway and Sweden said they are in the process of becoming shareholders of the Instrument in Support of Trade Exchanges (INSTEX). Britain, France, and Germany launched INSTEX in January to enable companies to trade with Iran without using U.S. dollars or going through U.S. banks, thereby shielding such companies from U.S. sanctions.
In Turkey: On November 27, 2019, according to the Middle Eastern News Agency Al-Monitor, “Turkey signed an agreement with Libya’s internationally recognized government denoting new maritime boundaries between the two nations. The area spanning from southwest Turkey to northeast Libya cuts across a zone currently claimed by Greece and Cyprus, where plans for a future gas pipeline are in the works to link eastern Mediterranean gas fields with European markets...”
There’s no doubt that gas & oil of Israel’s region will become the reason for the upcoming regional war described in Ezekiel 38:5, 13 39:1-2. [And it'll not be Russia. More here ]

President Trump Was Right About Sweden:
Muslim AK-47s & Bombings Turn Sweden Into War Zone
- this isn’t just Islamic terrorism; it’s a war going on everyday
There have been 187 bomb attacks this year. In just 1 week in August, there were three major bombings. Much of the violence is concentrated in [Muslim onclave] Malmo which experienced 58 bombings in 2017.
Swedish authorities and its media rarely discuss or name the perpetrators. A recent shooting left Jaffar Ibrahim, a 15-year-old boy, dead; shot in a Malmo pizzeria. The shooting attack was preceded by a car bombing which was used as a diversion. Nine out of 10 shooters are foreign immigrants or the children of foreign migrants. However, Muslim gang violence in Sweden isn’t just its problem anymore; also in:
- Copenhagen with explosions outside a police station and a tax office over the summer. The targets were political and the bombs weren’t fireworks or hand grenades, but commercial explosives used for demolitions. The suspects turned out to be criminals who had entered from Sweden. Denmark has reacted to the terror traffic from Sweden by imposing border controls on bridge crossings.
Europe’s open infrastructure, its rejection of national and regional borders, has worsened the problem. From the mass flow of migrants from Muslim countries to the ease with which Muslim gang members move between European countries, the lack of border security has made the conquest of Europe easy.
Government [Sociaist] agencies suggest a comforting message that the solution to Islamic violence is social welfare. Their answer to everything. It's been tried but Muslim migrants are so deep in the social welfare system that they often never leave it. The gang members and ISIS terrorists are the welfare system’s children.
While the same old lies keep being told, the bombs keep going off, the bullets keep flying and AK-47 fire is heard in broad daylight; the Islamic terrorists are protected while they kill law abiding citizens. In the USA presidential hopeful Socialist Bernie Sanders would like America to be more like Sweden ; causing taxes to fund social welfare programs for killers. *Excerpted and adapted full original report from Daniel Greenfield here
In 2017 President Trump was right about Sweden. Sweden is the tip of the Spear in the multicultural attack on Western nations. On Jan 3, 2017 Vice Prime Min Mona Sahlin of Sweden said, “I think it is that which makes many Swedes so envious of immigrant groups. They have a culture, an identity, a history, something that binds them. And what do we have? We have Midsummer Eve and such silly things.”
This sort of insanity is rampant on the Left. They view thousands of years of Nordic culture as irrelevant and manufactured on the back of white privilege. They don’t allow their rich history to bind them with their countrymen because to do so would be a racist declaration of self-determination. In defiance of this fabricated “racism” they instead make excuses for foreign ideology and culture. Recently a court ruled that it was legal to fly an ISIS flag which should come as no surprise after their expert on Islamophobia left the country to join ISIS.
The Last Hours of the Last Days
On the first Christian “Pentecost” Peter spoke to approximately one hundred and twenty disciples saying: “Men & brethren, this scripture must needs have been fulfilled, which the Holy Ghost by the mouth of David spake … Wherefore of these men which have companied with us all the time that the Lord Jesus went in and out among us, Beginning from the baptism of John, unto that same day that He was taken up from us, must one be ordained to be a witness with us of His resurrection.”
11-17-19, * --The world has been in the last days since the apostle Peter preached his sermon on the first Christian Pentecost  following the ascension of Jesus (Acts 1:11, 2:17) and current events seem to indicate that it is now down to the last hours of the last days; Islamic terror plays a big important part. Many dispute that America is even in the Bible; but we can see - before our very eyes - how she is much involved with end time prophecy as follows:
- Sept. 11, 2001, Islamic terrorists attacked the USA; US Pres. Bush could have pointed out that Islam divides the world into two parts: The Domain of the Faithful (Muslims) and the Domain of Those that Islam is at War [Jihad] With (all non-Muslims), but Pres. Bush chose to appease Islam, refer to Islam as a religion of peace, etc., because he didn’t want to alienate all Muslims. Pres. Obama followed by removing terms like “Islamic terrorists,” “jihad,” etc., from military training manuals; and he ordered the State Dept., Intelligence agencies and the FBI not to use those terms.
- From 2012-2018 US ally Islamic nation of Qatar gave over $1.1 billion to Islamic terror group Hamas in Gaza Strip. A Lebanese Al Akhbar newspaper claims Qatar will cease funding in 2020.
- On Oct 26, 2019 the US Military and Conan [a dog] cornered the ISIS terror leader Al-Baghdadi – Pres Trump said Baghdadi died like a dog, like a coward, whimpering and crying. In Islam dogs are considered to be unclean animals; clearly Pres Trump is not trying to appease Islam, he’s calling it like it is – Baghdadi was a brutal barbarian who raped, murdered many and enslaved women and children. Pres Trump is more astute than either Bush or Obama knowing that radical Muslim terrorists intend to establish a global Islamic caliphate with world dominance.
- Currently [Nov 2019] the Islamic Shiite nation of Iran has stepped up her enrichment of nuclear materials and could have a nuclear weapon in two to three months (one year at the most). Iran is in flames with protests in 53 cities. The people are against the regime foreign terror spending, perceived to be the cause of the deteriorating economic situation in Iran with gasoline rationing. The USA also is against Iran's participation in international terror and has sanctioned Iran heavily. More here from Clarion
- Russia and Iran are both building up their forces in Syria while Turkey is attacking the Kurds in Syria. [Ezekiel 38:2-3, 16]
- Ten Islamic nations [Daniel 2:40-45, Revelation 17:12] will form a coalition in their efforts to attack the Jewish state of Israel. [The European Union and USMCA are examples of regional trading blocs.] Also, a regional group of nations called the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN regional group) has just concluded a treaty with China and five other nations that covers one-third of the trade on earth.
- Politics: November 2019 two main parties in the Jewish state are in a standoff to create a new government, but there is one thing that they both agree on: Israel should annex the Jordan Valley and declare Israeli sovereignty over it.
- Pres Trump declared Jerusalem the capitol of Israel moving the US Embassy there and Israel’s right to the Golan Heights
- Prophecy fulfilled prosperity: Israel will be wealthy in the latter years and latter days (Ezek. 38:11-12).
- Israel has built a railroad, they are now building hotels and restaurants and they just voted to build a cable car to move 3,000 visitors per hour to the Wailing Wall below the Temple Mount. Here
- Large deposits of oil and natural gas have been discovered off the coast of Israel.
- Pres. Trump has convinced the EU to stop buying oil and natural gas from Russia and to start buying it from Israel. This will financially hurt Russia as Israel becomes richer.
- Jews returning to the Promised Land is a fulfillment of prophecy. [Psalm 107:2-3; Hosea 3:4-5, 6:1; Ezekiel 20:34; Isaiah 11:11-12, 43:5-6, 21, 66:8; Jeremiah 32:44]
- Israel’s currency the shekel has gained strongly against the dollar, while most major currencies have weakened against the US. Israel has gone from a wasteland in 1948 to the strongest currency in the world (should I add with cattle and goods, silver and gold).
