Gog Magog War: Key Islamic Nation of Turkey
Ezekiel 38:1-6, 39:1
In 2013 Pastor Steve Cioccolanti explained all the reasons why Russia is not the nation to the north as described in Ezekiel 38:1-6 ... it is the Islamic nation of Turkey. Pastor Steve's Biblical teaching describes the main players of WWIII and he has been on record for over a decade and is now being vindicated. The nations involved in the Gog Magog war are NOT what many Gentile prophecy teachers assume! We have to look at:
27 minute video here:
As part of NATO's nuclear umbrella, Turkey continues to host approximately 50 U.S. tactical nuclear weapons on its territory at Incirlik Air Base.  While the Cold War-era B61 bombs serve little military purpose, they provide tangible evidence of a continued American commitment to Turkish security.
There is ongoing debate in the policy community about whether the United States should continue to station tactical nuclear weapons in Turkey, given political instability in Turkey and the wider Middle East.  However, advocates for the continued presence of the weapons argue that, although they serve little military purpose, they provide tangible evidence of a continued American commitment to Turkish security. [..]
Currently, the Afghanistan Islamic terror is focused on the Kabul airport that was/is controlled by Turkey. Here

End-time experts are talking a lot about the Gog-Magog war prophecy that predicts a powerful confederacy, apparently led by Turkey. In Psalm 83 we see the prophet Asaph who saw beyond a period of peace when certain nations would seek the utter destruction of Israel; the time seems to be nearing.
“Come,” they say, “let us destroy them as a nation, so that Israel’s name is remembered no more.”
The nations of Iran  and Turkey  have both declared their desire to push the Jews into the sea.
On May 8, 2021 speaking at an event in Istanbul, the president of Turkey Tayyip Erdogan called on all Muslim countries and the international community to take "effective" steps against Israel [confederacy or coalition??], he adding that those who remain silent were "a party to the cruelty there." He falsely said: "The cruel, terror state Israel is mercilessly and unethically attacking Muslims in Jerusalem ... immediately launched the necessary initiatives to get the United Nations, Organisation for Islamic Cooperation and all relevant institutions to take action."

8-3-21, FrontPage -- Israel has for years been able to bomb targets in Syria virtually at will. These include Iranian bases, where precision-guided weapons are both assembled and made ready for delivery to Hezbollah, and Hezbollah bases which take delivery of these weapons and take them back to Lebanon. In hundreds of missions over Syria, Israeli planes have successfully avoided being hit; and the Syrian and Iranian defenses have proved unequal to the task of intercepting Israeli missiles.Until now.
The latest report on Russian missile systems being transferred to Syria is here: “Report: Russia helping Syria thwart Israeli attacks,” by Neta Bar and Shahar Klaiman, Israel Hayom. [..]
Israel will now have to find solutions to the Russian missile-defense system now being installed in Syria. The Russians feel secure in transferring these systems, now that Biden assured Putin in June that the Americans did not approve of Israeli attacks on targets in Syria, and thus would no longer object to Russia supplying the Syrians with missile-defense weapons that will now make the Jewish state’s task much more difficult. This betrayal of a country that has always been our steadfast ally, and has done more than any other country to combat terrorism, should not be forgotten. More:
Syria, Russia & Israel
Things Have Changed Since Netanyahu No Longer Prime Minister - Communications have ceased
7-27-21, BreakingDefense.com -- TEL AVIV: Defense sources say the Israeli military is planning to change its tactics in Syria to revolve around long-range standoff munitions as opposed to air strikes, following a new Russian policy to use its higher-end air defense systems capable of shooting down Israeli jets over Syrian airspace.
The change follows an announcement late last week by Rear Adm. Vadim Kulit, the head of the Russian military reconciliation center in Syria, who said in a TV interview that the Russian forces assisted the Syrians in intercepting four missiles launched by Israeli F-16s — the first time Russian assistance was given to counter Israeli military operations. [..]
Israeli sources confirmed that the BUK 2ME was used for the first time against Israeli missiles, raising fears that Israeli pilots could be targeted as well. As a result, military leadership here is planning to shift operations almost entirely to long-range strike weapons.
Compounding the situation is a change since Benjamin Netanyahu is no longer Israel's Prime Minister when Putin and Bibi had a good working relationship. For the majority of the conflict in Syria, Israel and Russia have maintained a hotline that allowed the Israeli military to alert Russian forces of incoming strikes, which were aimed at Syrian forces backed by Moscow; generally, sources say, Russia was given two to three minutes of warning before an attack in order to remove their personnel in the area; in some cases missions were aborted over fears of striking Russian forces. However, Russian officials are now being quoted in regional media as saying that deconfliction line no longer exists. Israeli sources here are saying communications through the line have effectively stopped.
Combined, the lack of the active hotline and the activation of Russian anti-aircraft weaponry is sending a message to Jerusalem that Israeli forces are now officially at risk.
Proof: Jewish State and Land of Israel Never Belonged to Muslims
"The Lord made a covenant with Abram, saying, Unto thy seed [and wife Sarah, Son Isaac] have I given this land, from the river of Egypt unto the great river, the river Euphrates"
7-21-21, The vicious historical revisionism by the Muslim world to erase the Jewish State of Israel in the attempt to create a mythical Islamic narrative surrounding five thousand years of Jewish history has been proven again and again. Yet the Jew hating world refuses the truth. Genesis 17:15-19, 21; Genesis 23:16; Acts 7:5-7 Where are all the mosques of the claimed “1 million Palestinians?” The British army permitted only a few Ottomans [aka Muslims] to remain in the Jewish homeland due to religious observations, the balance was Jewish. According to eye witnesses the barren British Mandate they called ‘Palestine’ had a very small number of people living on it.
In July 1922, the League of Nations entrusted Great Britain with the Mandate for Palestine. Recognizing "the historical connection of the Jewish people with so called "Palestine," Great Britain was called upon to facilitate the establishment of a Jewish national home in Palestine-Eretz Israel (Land of Israel). In September 1922 they decided that the provisions for setting up a Jewish national home would not apply to the area east of the Jordan River.
Oppressed Muslims in Israel aka “Palestinians” or Oppressive Terrorists?
6-21-21, FrontPage, Raymond Ibrahim* -- Why do Islamic Palestinians in the Jewish State of Israel present themselves as victims and Israel as land-grabbing oppressors? They are not innocent & helpless victims  it is Jewish land. When all is said and done, Islamic notions of “justice” is based on their beliefs and acts of aggression conquering, slaughtering, subjugating and stealing land as justified whenever they conclude they’re living under “infidel” authority; hence the virulent hatred for and often attacks on the Jewish nation of Israeli civilians.
www.aljazeera.com/news/ On April 16, 2021, AlJazeera published an article by the head of the Political Science Dept at the University of the Ummah in Gaza, Adnan Abu Amar on the topic of jihad [war] during the month of Islam’s Ramadan. He explained how Palestinians find “inspiration” in various jihads throughout Islamic history, “prominent among them the raid of Badr, the opening of Mecca, the opening of al-Andalus and the battle of the pavement of martyrs [the Battle of Tours, 732 AD].”
In all the battles, Muslims were the aggressors invading non-Muslim territory, butchering and enslaving inhabitants and stealing their land. Reason? they were “infidels”[ non-Muslims]. Current day Muslims [aka Palestinians] elements in Israel are constantly praising the unjustified conquests of others as they again steal land. [Patriarch of Muslims: Abraham's Egyptian son Ishmael by Hagar wife Sarah's maid. Genesis 16:12]
On May 29, Hizb al-Tahrir—the “Liberation Party”—often holds large, outdoor events near al-Aqsa mosque on Temple Mount in Jerusalem ‘Dome of the Rock’ commemorating the anniversary of the Islamic conquest of Constantinople (May 29, 1453). During one Islamic events in Jerusalem with chants of “Allahu Akbar” Muslim cleric Nidhal Siam spoke:
“Oh Muslims, the anniversary of the opening [that is, conquest] of Constantinople brings tidings of things to come. It brings tidings that Rome will be conquered in the near future, Allah willing… Islam will throw its neighbors to the ground, and its reach will span across the east and the west of this Earth. This is Allah’s promise; and Allah does not renege on his promises.”
All Siam’s proclamations before thunderous applause; in other words no non-Muslim [infidel] is safe from Islamic jihad — including those who live countless leagues away from and have nothing to do with the Arab-Israeli conflict. Question: Why are the Muslims seeking sympathy from the international community presenting themselves as an oppressed people whose land is unjustly occupied when they proudly proclaim their inspiration as they seek to repeat the atrocities of the past stealing the lands of others including Israel?

Israel Coalition Prime Ministers
First Two Years: Naftali Bennett & Second Two Years: Yair Lapid
6-13-21, Jewish Library -- Naftali Bennett  is a former software entrepreneur and the new Prime Minister of the Jewish state of Israel. He is Israel’s wealthiest politician.
Under the coalition agreement, Bennett will serve two years before passing the torch to Yair Lapid for the latter half of the four-year-term. Together they helped bring together a diverse government body, including a party representing Arab citizens for the first time in the nation's history.
Bennett is the first religious prime minister and first born of American parents who immigrated to Israel from San Francisco California USA soon after the Six Day War in 1967. He is the youngest of three sons. Like Netanyahu, he is fluent in English; is married to Gilat and they have four children.
He served in the Israel Defense Forces in the elite Special Forces commando unit Sayeret Matkal as well as the Special Forces unit Maglan. After his service he earned a law degree at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. In 1999, he co-founded and co-owned the U.S. company Cyota focused on preventing various types of online fraud. The company was sold in 2005 for $145. Million. Bennett also served as CEO of Soluto, an Israeli cloud computing service, reportedly sold in 2013 for $100–130 million.
From 2006 to 2008, Bennett served as Benjamin Netanyahu's Chief of Staff. In 2010, he was chosen to be the Director General of the Yesha Council and worked against a settlement freeze. In December 2018, he was among the Jewish Home MKs to leave the party and form the breakaway New Right Party. Netanyahu pressured Bennett to form a union with the far right parties to increase the chance they would exceed the electoral threshold in the election for the 23rd Knesset in March 2020. However, Bennett ran a joint slate … The United Right as they were also called. In the 2021 election, Bennett’s Yamina Party won seven seats and he was viewed as the kingmaker; his natural allies are on the right.
Bennett does not support a ‘Palestinian State’ and supports the idea that Gaza should be ruled by Egypt. According to Gabe Friedman, “Bennett advocates for free-market reforms, particularly in Israel’s expensive housing market: He is against regulation, taxes and other restrictions on business. He is a proponent of widening Israel’s network of trade partners around the world, including in emerging markets and in smaller countries with newer relationships with Israel.”

Bibi’s done? Anti-Netanyahu coalition notifies Israeli
6-3-21, Israel's Prime Minister Netanyahu, who has been prime minister since 2009, maybe finished. Yamina’s Bennett signed a coalition agreement with Lapid. They also secured the support of Blue and White, led by current Defense Minister Benny Gantz – his former coalition partner who had accepted a role in Netanyahu’s unity government in May 2020.
If Lapid and Bennett’s razor-thin coalition gets approved by the Knesset, it will hold off the need for yet another general election; Israel has held four over the past two years.
Israel's Prime Minister Netanyahu admits receiving gifts, insists they were 'trifles
1-3-17, Times of Israel -- Israel’s state comptroller released a critical report about Netanyahu’s foreign trips, some with his wife and children, between 2003 and 2005, when he was finance minister. M/M Netanyahu are accused of using public funds on garden furniture and electrical repairs at their home in Caesarea. A former staffer whistle blower has accused Mrs Sara Netanyahu of pocketing cash/coin from deposit refunds for empty bottles returned from the official residence between 2009 and 2013, money that should have gone to the treasury! In 2013, Netanyahu reimbursed the state $1,000. but the staffer said the figure should have been six times higher!
Pandemic of Hate in the Middle East
Islamic Nations World’s Majority of Anti-Semitism
6-7-21, FrontPage* -- Concurrent with Israel’s military response to the latest wave of Islamic terror of rocket and mortar salvos targeting Jewish civilian areas — the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) issued a May 20, 2021 press release chronicling “a dangerous and drastic surge in anti-Jewish hate right here at home,” in the United States. We have people waving Muslim Palestinian flags and then attacking Jewish people. Omitted from ADL’s assessment was any reference to the organization’s own copious global polling data on the disproportionate occurrence of virulently Anti-Semitic attitudes among Muslims.
At least six of eleven Anti-semitic stereotypes are 2- to 4.5-fold more common among Muslims, relative to non-Muslims, worldwide; per the ADL’s 2014-2019 surveys:
Intellectually honest assessments of what animates such intense Muslim Jew-hatred—whether the current pandemic, or regional historical examples dating back to at least the 9th century, demonstrate Islam itself engenders this pervasive phenomenon. From their teachings:
“Fight those who do not believe in Allah or in the Last Day and who do not consider unlawful what Allah and His Messenger have made unlawful and who do not adopt the religion of truth (Islam) from those who were given the Scripture (Jews/other ‘scriptuaries’) - [fight] until they give the jizya (Koranic poll-tax, in lieu of being slain) willingly while they are humbled (such as the humiliating jizya collection ‘rituals’, blows, mock beheadings, etc.).”
The late Grand Imam of Al-Azhar University reiterated the overarching principle, established across a millennium of uniform commentary on this verse from their book the Koran: Jews (and other “scriptuaries,” or “People of the Book,” Christians) must be fought, subdued and humbled because they constitute a chronic danger to an Islamic, Sharia-based society.
When will non-Muslim religious, political and “intellectual” leaders publicly denounce the ongoing, institutionalized Jew-hatred of Sunni Islam’s pre-eminent teaching institution, Al-Azhar University, and insist upon wrenching reforms of mainstream Islam’s “sacralized,” Jew-hating canon?

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu May Be On His Way Out. What Happens Next?
Caretaker Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is now set to undertake every possible political maneuver to prevent his ousting from office – by using the time remaining before the necessary vote of confidence by the Knesset in the new proposed government before it can be sworn in. He will take particular aim at Yamina members rumored to be unhappy about joining forces with Arab and leftist lawmakers.
Benjamin Netanyahu  Israel’s longest-serving Premier, has sought to discredit the Bennett-Lapid alliance, saying it would endanger national security – an allusion to efforts to curb Iran’s nuclear program and manage ever-present friction with Palestinians in the West Bank and Gaza.

Sacrifices Israel has made for peace; but God's word says there'll be no peace and that the land should not be divided; yet they repeatedly gave away God's land
God said, "I will also gather all nations, and will bring them down into the valley of Jehoshaphat, and will plead with them there for My people and for My heritage Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations and parted My land."
Jeremiah 6:14; Joel 3:2
8-17-20, ArutzSheva -- Jared Kushner, adviser and son-in-law to US Pres Trump addressing the Jewish State Israel peace agreement. He recently helped broker between Israel and the United Arab Emirates [UAE] and said:
"Israel has made a very generous proposal for the establishment of a Palestinian state, including an exchange of territories. The understanding that this is the situation has enabled the breakthrough that led to the current agreement. The president laid out his vision for peace in January this year ... and this is the first map ever agreed to by one of the parties publicly put out in a peace negotiation. We got Israel to agree to negotiate on the basis of the process of division, they agreed to the map and agreed to move forward on a Palestinian state. This was a major breakthrough that changed the view of a lot of people in the region about Israel's seriousness to actually make concessions to resolve this longstanding conflict. [..]
When asked how the US would make certain that Israel does not unilaterally annex any territory he said: "We built a very trusting relationship with Israel. President Trump is committed to holding them accountable to it, and Israel has agreed with us that they will not move forward without our consent. We do not plan to give our consent for some time, as of right now the focus has to be on getting this new peace agreement implemented. We really want to get as much interchange between Israel and the United Arab Emirates as possible, and we really want Israel to focus on creating new relationships and new alliances.
"That land is land that right now that Israel, quite frankly controls. It’s Israelis who are living there; it’s not going anywhere. There shouldn’t be any urgency to apply Israeli law. So we believe that they will stick to their agreement.” Source: https://www.israelnationalnews.com/News/News.aspx/285415

Tolerating Hate or Standing Against Hate?
King David said: “For Your lovingkindness is before my eyes; and I have walked in Your truth. I have not sat with vain persons, neither will I go in with dissemblers. I have hated the congregation of evildoers: and will not sit with the wicked.”
5-25-21m * -- The recent attacks on the Jewish State of Israel by the Islamic terrorists in Gaza Israel - Hamas - calling themselves "Palestinians" has once again brought out the haters of Jews in America. Like roaches from that darkest dankest places, they emerged, stirring up violence with a common chant, “Kill the Jews.” This is like Nazi Germany history repeating itself, except this time it is in the land of the free and home of the brave = AMERICA.
We need to denounce this hate speech, this horrible sentiment, in no uncertain terms. The haters have gone over the top with weaponizing race, sexual origin, ethnicity, politics — you name it, if there is a way to hate, the haters are making it and taking it. These are the same people who go overboard with slogans like “Hate doesn’t live here.”
What we are seeing is that people are protesting by channeling their hate toward groups of people under the mask of a political belief. Both are very dangerous.
This goes far beyond the right to free speech, which they have a right to express, but it doesn’t make them right. It goes to the heart of a civilization.
A very concerning reality about the ongoing anti Israel riots we've witnessed and tolerated, is they're destroying property, occupying areas and are violent against others because they are upset about a perceived social ill.
In reality, they're advocating an overthrow of the Israeli government, which means they demand nothing less than replacement of freedom and liberty with the chains of anarchy and Marxism. They are pawns of a greater cause, but are too blinded by their hate to see it.
We are witnessing American elected officials using sly words to espouse and incite hate, and it's actually being tolerated. The recent protests and harassment against Jews by supporters of Islamic terrorists are an example. This is how it starts. The seeds of hate are being watered by the words of the haters. It must stop.
You see, all the hate is causing such vitriol that if it doesn’t stop, we risk the historic outcome of death and ultimate destruction. There is a right and a wrong. When the head of Hamas, for example, is bragging about how Hamas targeted groups of Jewish civilians with rockets, and a "President" of the United States demands Israel cease its defense against it, the cry “Never Again” has renewed meaning.
When the actions of Hamas are celebrated in the streets of America and our leaders do not denounce them or it takes days after such a hate-filled protest for the current sitting leader of the USA to even acknowledge the issue, as a society, we have a deep problem. This weaponization of race and ethnicity must stop before it goes systemic deadly. There is right and wrong. And these days the wrong is being not only tolerated, but hailed as just. [Isaiah 5:20 Evil is now considered good.] Pray, speak, stand against it that it may not engulf us.

Isaiah 1:4, 9:17
Democrats Should Punish Tlaib & Omar for their Israel Hatred
5-19-21, AZCentral -- The moment we fail to recognize good vs. evil, the concept ceases to exist. The Bible speaks of it in Isaiah 5:20.
This is happening before our eyes. The Islamic terror group Hamas that rules Gaza in Israel is supported by Iran, has launched thousands of missiles at dozens of major Israeli cities and towns with the intent to murder as many civilian Jews as possible and terrorize Israelis who've once again been forced into bomb shelters.
Israel’s Iron Dome missile defense system, intercepted many/most of the Gaza rockets saving thousands of Israeli lives.
Sadly mobs in Israel & the world support the Muslims attacks on the Jews as they continue to riot ...
Hamas has made clear that their attacks on civilians are in pursuit of their antisemitic aim, as expressed in their Covenant's article 7 to destroy the state of Israel:
“the Day of Judgment will not come until Muslims fight Jews and kill them.”
Any objective observer sees and knows that Hamas is evil. We know from 9/11 that Islamic terror group al-Qaeda is evil as is Islamic terror group ISIS. The Jewish state of Israel - the ONLY Democratic state in the Middle East - unlike Hamas, has taken unprecedented steps to avoid civilian casualties, including advance evacuation warnings to civilians in target areas and focused precision strikes. Many [most?] of the deaths in Gaza have been caused by Hamas rockets that landed in their own territory.
Astonishingly, in America, Democrat politicians support the terrorists Hamas:
P12-20-19, Jake Silverstein -- Critical race theorists [CRT] maintain that America has been defined since its founding by racism and that American racism has never truly diminished. To these theorists, Martin Luther King Jr. was both wrong in his goals and naïve in his view of Americans’ abilities to judge people by the content of their character rather than the color of their skin. The CRT-based “1619 Project” suggests that the U.S. cannot overcome the “original sin” of slavery and claims that “nearly everything that has truly made America exceptional” grew out of slavery and racism. -- Source New York Times Magazine here

Right now, as I speak to you, Israeli citizens are running to seek shelter from Hamas' indiscriminate attacks. You are calling on Israel to exercise restraint when it is facing indiscriminate attacks every day. The hypocrisy in this institution knows no boundaries," Erdan said, hitting out at Turkey, Denmark and France. He said: "We go above and beyond the demands of international law." Erdan presented placards contrasting the clauses in the UN's charter, which seeks to uphold human rights, and that of Islamic terror group in Gaza, Hamas, which calls for the destruction of Israel. Erdan accused the member states of failing to uphold the organization's founding principles through their weak action on Hamas.
'WE WILL DRIVE THE JEWS INTO THE SEA!"

Egypt Proposes Ceasefire for Israel & Muslims in Gaza
After Eleven Days of Hostilities It will go into effect May 21, 2021
5-20-21, The Israeli government has agreed to a mutual ceasefire with the Muslims aka Palestinian terror group Hamas and Palestinian Islamic Jihad, as proposed by Egypt. It would put an end to 11 days of rocket strikes on Israel and IDF retaliated bombardment of Gaza.
Israel's National Security Adviser Meir Ben Shabbat was authorized to start talks with Egypt on the ceasefire initiative, to work out the details and the starting date, Israeli media reported.
The Islamic Terror groups Hamas and Palestinian Islamic Jihad began firing rockets into Israel on May 10, 2021. [..] Since then, more than 4,000 rockets were fired from Gaza into Israeli territory.
While many of the Hamas rockets misfired they fell back into the Gaza strongholds and killed Muslim civilians. In Israel most of them were intercepted by Israel's Iron Dome missile defense system, about a tenth got through. Most struck areas close to Gaza such as Sderot or Ashkelon, but some hit as far as Jerusalem and the suburbs of Tel Aviv killing Jewish civilians..
Meanwhile, IDF planes, drones, tanks and artillery bombed Gaza, destroying a number of prominent high-rises where terrorists had headquarters and terrror tunnels.
The truce will be "mutual and unconditional." Meanwhile, Hamas and Islamic Jihad have confirmed in a statement that they will observe the ceasefire. Earlier, Reuters cited a Hamas official who said a “mutual and simultaneous” truce with Israel will begin at 2am local time on Friday, May 22, 2021.
Courtesy of Iran, Gaza Terrorists Fire Thousands of Rockets at Israeli Civilians
“Hamas uses children to protect its missiles. Israel uses missiles to protect its children.” - UN Ambassador from Israel
5-18-21, FrontPage* -- During the 2014 Gaza War against the Jewish state of Israel, the Palestinian Islamic terrorists of Hamas and Islamic Jihad deliberately rained down enormous barrages of rockets on Israel’s civilians while Barry O watched. Once again we’re seeing the Muslim’s engage in the same level of savagery just four months after ole Joe [Obama 2.0] claimed the US presidency. Since May 10, 2021 the terrorist groups in Gaza fired nearly 3,000 rockets into Israel. In that time, Israel has at least nine dead, including five women and two children.
Israel has forcefully responded with hundreds of air strikes in Gaza successfully eliminating: senior terrorist leaders, their military, command & intelligence facilities, officers’ homes, terror tunnel networks also building shared by media & terrorists. Israeli army spokesman said: “Hamas will think 500 times before ever again going to war against Israel.”
Recently the UN Security Council held an open meeting calling for maximum mutual restraint with ceasefire in Israel without pointing out that the Islamic terrorists in Gaza began the hostilities by raining down hundreds of rockets on Israel’s civilians and Israel is once again is defending herself. Nor was Iran’s documented role as the terrorists’ main military supplier and funder mentioned … not even once.
Before Obama left office the Iranian regime was rewarded with billions of dollars of cash. The world’s largest state sponsor of terrorism no doubt used some of the money to: replenish and upgrade the Palestinian terrorists’ rocket arsenal as it was prior to the 2014 Gaza War and building underground attack tunnels from Gaza into Israel began in earnest.
Obama also bent over backwards to fund the Palestinians during his administration, again with no strings attached. The funding did not stop after the conclusion of the 2014 Gaza War. In fact, U.S. aid to the Palestinians increased to $557 million in 2015 from $497 million in 2014.
The Palestinian & Iranian terrorists are counting on obtaining sanctions relief and cash from the USA again now that President Trump is no longer in charge. Then they’ll be able to replenish rocket and mortar supplies used in the current Gaza assault on Israel.
MEMRI reported that Islamic Revolution Guard Corps Genl Sepehr, commander of the Iranian Central Training Base said: “We have a religious duty to act against Israel and annihilate it. This is the command and strategy of both imams of the Revolution. This is the command and strategy of the Prophet Muhammad and of God Himself."
And comments by the Palestinian Islamic Jihad’s senior official Al-Halabi who boasted: "The mujahideen in Gaza and in Lebanon use Iranian weapons to strike the Zionists. We buy our weapons with Iranian money. An important part of our activity is under the supervision of Iranian experts. The contours of the victories in Palestine as of late were outlined with the blood of Qasem Soleimani, Iranian blood. [..] I am proud to say that the rockets that are used to pound Tel Aviv have an Iranian signature on them. The guns that we use to shoot at the Israeli enemy... Those who use these guns were trained by our brothers in the IRGC. [..] They are the ones who support us."
The Palestinian terrorists and the Iranian regime that enables them are to blame for the deadly consequences of the rocket attacks from Gaza and of Israel’s military response, including the deaths of Palestinian civilians the terrorists regularly use as human shields.

Israel's Jihad Crisis is Also the World's Jihad Crisis
The World Has Immigrated Millions of Potentially Threatening Jihadists
The Lord Jesus said, "Many shall come in My name, saying," I am Christ; and shall deceive many. And ye shall hear of wars and rumors of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, pestilences and earthquakes, in divers places. All these are the beginning of sorrows."
Matthew 24:5-8; Revelation 13:2
5-16-21, * -- Israel is a not a war zone because of geopolitics, but because it shares a common crisis with Europe, America, Russia, China and numerous other countries, most of whom are trying to buy time for their own internal Islamic insurgencies by siding with the Jihadist insurgency inside Israel.
A sizable hostile minority within your borders is always an explosive element, but Islamic migration is unique in that it emerged and still emerges from a tribal and religious manifest destiny of world conquest.
Israel's Islamic minority is particularly hostile because unlike those of America, Europe, Russia, and China it came to the Jewish State as a conquering force and made up the 'Herrenvolk', the colonial master race, within living memory (religiously, if not ethnically under the Ottoman Empire). [..]
Israel's strategy of integrating the Arab Muslim population within randomly defined borders, convincing them to see themselves as part of the Jewish State…The fragmented Muslim populations of the world are the remnants of an aspiring empire created by centuries of conquests and invasions. Islam convinces them to see themselves as part of that Ummah, a civilizational empire that is meant to encompass the world. Muslim terrorism kills more Muslims than non-Muslims do. Islamic manifest destiny has traditionally destroyed Muslim societies comprehensively. [..]
However, the Jewish State isn't suffering from an Islamic insurgency because it wanted to operate on a global scale, but because foreign invading powers, most notably the Syrian-Greeks and the Romans, imposed their dominion using Arab mercenaries. ..The Islamic conquests failed to assemble any kind of global utopian empire. They did however destroy countless peoples, eliminate many cultures, and create broken mirror images of the original Mohammedan Jihad with little emirates ruled by little Mohammeds. And they killed countless millions and ushered in a thousand years of tyranny and terror.
The fall of the Ottoman Empire [mainly today’s Turkey] revived Jewish hopes for reclaiming their homeland, but the Zionists had not counted on the endurance of that original war imperative or on the weakness of civilization. And so the conflict continues in Israel and around the world; the conflict has been particularly sharp in Israel because where Muslims are a minority in other nations, they are a regional majority. And because of the strategic importance of the region, half the world has made it its business to intervene… The Nazis shaped the Muslim Brotherhood and the Soviet Union shaped the PLO with their strategies, tactics, and organizations, so that Israel is fighting both the Communists and the Nazis in its own territory. ..So the campaign against Israel gets plenty of support from the Left as does Islamic terror in general.[..]
Thanks to Pres Trump, the Jewish State adroitly managed to form a temporary alliance through the Abraham Accords with some regional traditional Islamic Sunni powers that have become alarmed at the threat of both of Islamic Shiite Iran and Islamist transnational ideological groups like the Muslim Brotherhood. Combine that with the fall of America’s Trump administration and the rise of a pro-Iran and a pro-Brotherhood Biden regime and the current conflict was inevitable.
Iran, Qatar, and various other Islamic players have not been investing a fortune in the terrorist group Hamas and other groups just to have them sit on the money. After a certain number of years they start a war to test Israel's defenses, military and diplomatic, leading to chaos, carnage, and a pressure for more concessions. This time is no different. [..]
Modern Islamic governments pursue utopian socialist schemes using a corrupt ruling class, much like the Communists and the Nazis, resulting in corruption, economic disaster, and external conflict. ... Israel hasn't figured out how to resolve the problem; neither has anyone else in the world. There may be no answer. The world is facing a 7th century crisis and trying to deal with it through 21st century means. …Neither the modern nor postmodern
Israel’s Prime Minister Netanyahu, like other conservative leaders, has appeared modern while eschewing modernity's preference for pat solutions and postmodernity's apologies and appeasement. And so Israel has been living in a premodern moment, adapting rapidly to circumstances as it has in some ways throughout its modern existence. But that's just a survival strategy and not a healthy one.
Israelis are always in crisis mode and they take one crisis at a time and what ought to be a shambles somehow turn around. Yet Israel persists. …Israel has fought an almost impossible war bravely, gallantly, jumping from one innovation to another and then being miraculously rescued with familiar certainty that neither it nor the Jewish people could exist without G-d Who intervenes invisibly at crucial moments.
The world nations must recognize that they/we all share a common problem and after generations of 'bargaining' with the Islamist’s ‘Jihad,’ that we're all facing the same war that across cultures, and even political affiliations, the West and the East, Right and Left we may be enemies, but we also share a common enemy - one whose assault civilization may not survive.
We can either unite against the Islamic Ummah, that embryonic empire of Sharia and Jihad, whose boundaries are those of the world, or we can cut our separate deals with its separate parts, which will all fail. And then we will fail and fall with them.

Israel: Jewish Lag B'Omer 2021 Commemoration Ends in Tragedy
“From the day after the Sabbath, the day you brought the sheaf [omer] of the wave offering, count off seven full weeks. Count off fifty days up to the day after the seventh Sabbath and then present an offering of new grain to the Lord.”
4-29-21, JERUSALEM (AP) — This annual Jewish one-day holiday is celebrated between the Passover and Shavuot (Weeks/ Pentecost). Although, this holiday was instituted by the rabbis , it does fall within the Biblically mandated observance of counting the Omer, the period of time linking Passover (the exodus from Egypt) with Shavuot (the giving of the Torah). Lag is the number 33 and Omer is a unit of measure, means “sheaves of a harvested crop.
In ancient times, the Jewish People cut down an omer of barley and brought it to the Temple as an offering on the second day of Passover. The Torah commanded the Jewish people to count from the time of this ‘wave offering’ the seven weeks until the evening of Shavuot [aka Pentecost] May 23, 2021.
“Count off seven weeks from the time you begin to put the sickle to the standing grain. Then celebrate the Feast of Weeks [Shavuot] to the Lord your God by giving a freewill offering in proportion to the blessings the Lord your God has given you.” Deuteronomy 16:9–10
[In modern day this commemoration does have some wonderful history for born again Believers in Messiah the Lord Jesus. It was during the counting of the Omer that Yeshua (Jesus) appeared to His disciples after the resurrection.]
The tone of the Counting of the Omer is not one of joy, but of somber introspection, as people prepare themselves to receive the Torah by reflecting on how to be a better person.
This year a stampede broke out injuring and trampling more than 100 people, dozens critically.
Yes ... Lag b’Omer: Yearning for the Messiah
Syrian Missile Strike Near Israeli Domona Nuclear Site
'Errant Syrian missile' fired at Israeli jet explodes near Dimona Israel Nuclear Site
4-21-21, Times of Israel -- A surface-to-air missile fired from Syria penetrated Israeli airspace early this morning. Debris from the projectile was located in the northern part of southeastern Negev region, about 19 miles from the Shimon Peres Negev Nuclear Research Center near the town of Dimona. [..]
Residents about 85 miles away in Jerusalem reported hearing a powerful explosion and that their homes were shaken by the force. Syria’s SA-5 missile – which has a range of 500 kilometers – is not believed to have been directed at the research facility where Israel is alleged to operate its secret nuclear program.
The Israeli Air Force (IAF) retaliated with strikes on Syria, including the battery from which the missile had been launched adjacent to the town of Ad Dumayr about 40 kilometers northeast of Damascus, where Iranian-backed militias have a presence.
Four SAF soldiers sustained injuries and material damage was cause as a result of the Israeli air assault, according to a Syrian military source cited by the state-run SANA news agency.
The Russian-made SA-5 is an outdated missile system that has been used by Syria for nearly three decades.
Israeli media has reported that air defenses around the Dimona reactor and the Red Sea port Eilat have been bolstered in recent weeks, against potential long-range missile or drone attack by Iranian-backed forces, including Houthi rebels based in Yemen.
Hostilities between the Jewish State and the Islamic Republic are high over Tehran’s nuclear program and a recent surge in sabotage attacks, several of which the arch-foes have blamed on each other.

The Israelites ate manna forty years after being released from slavery
So the people of Israel ate manna for forty years until they arrived at the promised land ... They all ate the same spiritual food. Deuteronomy 8:2. Remember that these forty years the LORD your God led you all the way in the wilderness, ... You did not withhold Your manna from their mouths, and You gave them water for their thirst. Exodus 16:35
What is Manna? Bible Story of Wilderness Miracle Explained
After 400 years of Egyptian slavery, the Hebrews spent forty years wandering in the wildernes, God provided their daily food called 'Manna.' While they grumbled saying their days in slavery were better. Manna, basically a word that means “what is it?” is a bread-like substance that fell from heaven (Psalm 78:24), and that tasted like honey.
The Israelites would go and collect a daily portion of manna each day, ensuring to get a double portion before the Sabbath (so they didn’t work for their food on the Sabbath). If they grabbed too much or too little, they suffered the consequences (Exodus 16:20). In Numbers 11:8 describes bread from heaven; they made it into cakes, boiled it, and ground it into flour. Also Deuteronomy 8:3, which Jesus later quotes when tempted by Satan, mentions these provisions from God.
Israel Election Results: Anti-Netanyahu Parties Divided on Next Move as PM Lacks Majority [again - still counting votes]
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's Likud has emerged as the largest party with the majority of the vote counted in Israel's unprecedented fourth election in two years. However, Netanyahu still does not have a clear path to a 61-seat majority needed to form a coalition. The vote count is expected to continue through Friday.
The anti-Netanyahu bloc, a motley crew of left, right and centrist factions, was also just shy of a majority. The Islamist United Arab List party, headed by Mansour Abbas, and Naftali Bennett's Yamina have not yet declared their support for either bloc. [..]
Likud has approached each member of New Hope with offers to convince them to defect =>
<= so that Netanyahu can create a coalition. Shasha-Biton said she had been offered the role of education minister. "There will absolutely not be any defectors," she said. "We will make an effort to form a government of change and prevent a fifth election."
The Central Elections Committee has released the full count of the vote, showing no change in the distribution of seats from earlier in the day. Parties supporting Netanyahu total 52 seats, and those opposing him 57, with the uncommitted Yamina and United Arab List parties holding a combined 11 seats. The results are not considered final, as they must be made official before being sent to President Reuven Rivlin next week. (Netael Bandel)
