Ex-Mossad Head: Peace Talks were Bungled - Middle East - News - Israel National News: " “We should have conducted secret negotiations with the Arab League, and only then begun open negotiations with the PA. The problem of Jerusalem, for instance, is not a PA problem but a problem of the entire Arab world. At least two states, like Jordan and Saudi Arabia, need to be brought on board, in order to give backing to any move.”"

7 reasons the Americans think this time will be different | The Times of Israel
"Undeterred by widespread Israeli and Palestinian skepticism, John Kerry is convinced he can broker a permanent accord. What does he know that we don’t?"

Hate to burst Mr. Kerry's bubble but lasting peace simply isn't going to happen in this age. I feel sorry for anyone who gets Israel to cede more of its territory. Ariel Sharon was the last one who attempted that.

Zechariah 12:
 This message concerning the fate of Israel came from the Lord: “This message is from the Lord, who stretched out the heavens, laid the foundations of the earth, and formed the human spirit. I will make Jerusalem like an intoxicating drink that makes the nearby nations stagger when they send their armies to besiege Jerusalem and Judah.On that day I will make Jerusalem an immovable rock. All the nations will gather against it to try to move it, but they will only hurt themselves.

Fate of Jerusalem looms over peace talks | Religion News Service
"Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas has said there can be no agreement and no end to the conflict between Palestinians and Israelis without a Palestinian capital in East Jerusalem, home to the Al-Aqsa Mosque, the last remnants of the Jews’ Second Temple and the Church of the Holy Sepulchre.

“Jerusalem will be a huge problem” to overcome for any final agreement,” said Aaron David Miller, a former adviser on Arab-Israeli peace negotiations to Democratic and Republican secretaries of state. “Down the road, (talks) will fail if Jerusalem is not resolved.”

These "peace talks" are doomed from the start. There will be no lasting agreement on partitioning Jerusalem for a Palestinian capital, but it's rather fun watching willingly ignorant world leaders spend their careers trying to make peace where none will be found...until the last day, but then it's very bad news for most of them.

Israel Hayom | An open letter from Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu

An open letter from Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu: "The following is the text of an open letter to the citizens of Israel from Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu ahead of the proposal to resume the peace talks with the Palestinians, which will be submitted to a cabinet vote on Sunday"

1 Thessalonians 5 NLT:
 "2 For you know quite well that the day of the Lord’s return will come unexpectedly, like a thief in the night. 3 When people are saying, “Everything is peaceful and secure,” then disaster will fall on them as suddenly as a pregnant woman’s labor pains begin. And there will be no escape."

I would make a lousy politician for Israel. As a Christian I could not in good conscience waste my time rallying Israel into a false peace with the Ishmaelites. I know that if any peace is achieved at all, it will only be momentary and leading into the bloodiest battle of Israel's history. Israel has been re-established in one (recent) day (May 14, 1948) per Isaiah 66, therefore we are staring directly at the end of this age. I probably sound like a crazed lunatic, but I choose to listen to the Bible to get a true understanding of when we are living. Don't be lulled by a false peace. Eventually there will be lasting peace, but not before the enemies of the God of Israel are wiped from this earth. I bet you won't hear that message in today's 'feel-good' church.

Isaiah 18:3-6

New Living Translation (NLT)
All you people of the world,
    everyone who lives on the earth—
when I raise my battle flag on the mountain, look!
    When I blow the ram’s horn, listen!
For the Lord has told me this:
“I will watch quietly from my dwelling place—
    as quietly as the heat rises on a summer day,
    or as the morning dew forms during the harvest.”
Even before you begin your attack,
    while your plans are ripening like grapes,
the Lord will cut off your new growth with pruning shears.
    He will snip off and discard your spreading branches.
Your mighty army will be left dead in the fields
    for the mountain vultures and wild animals.
The vultures will tear at the corpses all summer.
    The wild animals will gnaw at the bones all winter.

Joel 3

New Living Translation (NLT)

Judgment against Enemy Nations

[a]“At the time of those events,” says the Lord,
    “when I restore the prosperity of Judah and Jerusalem,
I will gather the armies of the world
    into the valley of Jehoshaphat.[b]
There I will judge them
    for harming my people, my special possession,
for scattering my people among the nations,
    and for dividing up my land.
They threw dice[c] to decide which of my people
    would be their slaves.
They traded boys to obtain prostitutes
    and sold girls for enough wine to get drunk.
“What do you have against me, Tyre and Sidon and you cities of Philistia? Are you trying to take revenge on me? If you are, then watch out! I will strike swiftly and pay you back for everything you have done. You have taken my silver and gold and all my precious treasures, and have carried them off to your pagan temples. You have sold the people of Judah and Jerusalem to the Greeks,[d] so they could take them far from their homeland.
“But I will bring them back from all the places to which you sold them, and I will pay you back for everything you have done. I will sell your sons and daughters to the people of Judah, and they will sell them to the people of Arabia,[e] a nation far away. I, the Lord, have spoken!”
Say to the nations far and wide:
    “Get ready for war!
Call out your best warriors.
    Let all your fighting men advance for the attack.
10 Hammer your plowshares into swords
    and your pruning hooks into spears.
    Train even your weaklings to be warriors.
11 Come quickly, all you nations everywhere.
    Gather together in the valley.”
And now, O Lord, call out your warriors!
12 “Let the nations be called to arms.
    Let them march to the valley of Jehoshaphat.
There I, the Lord, will sit
    to pronounce judgment on them all.
13 Swing the sickle,
    for the harvest is ripe.[f]
Come, tread the grapes,
    for the winepress is full.
The storage vats are overflowing
    with the wickedness of these people.”
14 Thousands upon thousands are waiting in the valley of decision.
    There the day of the Lord will soon arrive.
15 The sun and moon will grow dark,
    and the stars will no longer shine.
16 The Lord’s voice will roar from Zion
    and thunder from Jerusalem,
    and the heavens and the earth will shake.
But the Lord will be a refuge for his people,
    a strong fortress for the people of Israel.

At least 38 pro-Morsi protesters killed in clashes with security forces in Egyptian capital: "Clashes erupted early Saturday in Cairo between security forces and supporters of Egypt's ousted President Mohammed Morsi, killing at least 38 protesters and overwhelming field hospitals with the wounded, the Health Ministry said, in an outburst of violence that put the possibility of political reconciliation in the deeply divided nation ever further out of reach."

Egyptian health dept. reports 29 Muslim Brotherhood protesters killed, 650 injured, says MB inflated Saturday’s casualties: "The Egyptian Health Moslem Brotherhood reported 29 Muslim Brotherhood protesters killed, 650 injured - not more 100 dead and 4,000 injured as the Brotherhood claimed from live fire it said was directed against its supporters around Rabaa al-Adawiya mosque in Nasser City early Saturday, July 27.  Earlier, Interior Minister Mohammed Ibrahim vowed to end the three-week sit-in at the mosque calling for the reinstatement of ousted president Mohamed Morsi and restore order to Cairo streets after the two massive rival demonstrations Friday night."

Saying 'peace and safety' when there is no peace

1 Thessalonians 5

New Living Translation (NLT)

Now concerning how and when all this will happen, dear brothers and sisters, we don’t really need to write you.For you know quite well that the day of the Lord’s return will come unexpectedly, like a thief in the night. When people are saying, “Everything is peaceful and secure,” then disaster will fall on them as suddenly as a pregnant woman’s labor pains begin.

Kerry to remain in Amman amid signs of progress in efforts to resume peace talks. Israeli official says in possible announcement top US diplomat will describe future Palestine within 1967 borders existing alongside 'Jewish state' of Israel; Netanyahu spokesman denies report
News agencies

Israel has agreed to a proposed formula for new peace talks with the Palestinians under which the border of their future state would be along lines that existed before the 1967 Middle East war, but with agreed land swaps, an Israeli official said on Thursday.

The official said that, were the Palestinians to accept the formula, it would be announced by US Secretary of State John Kerry, who would also describe the future Palestine as existing alongside a "Jewish state" of Israel. A spokesman for Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu denied the report.

It was further reported Thursday that Kerry has prolonged his Middle East visit amid signs of progress in his efforts to kickstart direct talks between Israel and the Palestinians.

"Secretary Kerry will remain in Amman on Thursday night to determine if there is additional work that requires his presence before he returns to the United States," the State Department official said.

In a further sign of a possible breakthrough in Kerry's intense diplomatic efforts to get the Israelis and Palestinians back to the negotiating table after a three-year break, Israeli army radio said Thursday the military is preparing to lift some restrictions on Palestinian movement in the West Bank.

"It appears that in the next few days the future of negotiations between Israel and the Palestinians will be determined," army radio's reporter for the Palestinian territories reported.

"In the light of security assessments, two roads in the territories are expected shortly to be opened to Palestinian traffic; one north of Ramallah and one close to Beit Haggai," he added, referring to a settlement near the southern West Bank city of Hebron.

The radio quoted the military spokesman's office as saying that the plans were a gesture for the Muslim fasting month of Ramadan and not linked to peace efforts.

The gestures come as Palestinian president Mahmud Abbas prepared to meet senior members of his Palestine Liberation Organization in the West Bank city of Ramallah later on Thursday to brief them on his meetings in Jordan with Kerry, a Palestinian official said.

Kerry, who was due to end his visit to Jordan on Thursday, was awaiting the outcome of that meeting before deciding his next step, a US official indicated.

Following his meetings with Abbas and after outlining his latest peace proposals to Arab League officials in Amman, Kerry reported a narrowing of the gaps between Israel and the Palestinians.

"Through hard and deliberate, patient work, and most importantly through quiet work, we have been able to narrow those gaps very significantly," the top US diplomat told reporters.

"We continue to get closer and I continue to be hopeful that the two sides will come to sit at the same table," he added, standing alongside his Jordanian counterpart Nasser Judeh.

The US envoy, who has made the resumption of Middle East peace talks a priority since he took office on February 1, acknowledged that differences remained between the two sides, despite his dogged shuttle diplomacy which saw him hold hours of talks with both Abbas and Netanyahu on his visit last month.

"There are still some elements and some language that needs to be agreed upon and worked out. This is normal, and I'm not going to detail specifics," he said.

The Palestinians insist that they will not return to the negotiating table until Israel agrees to accept as a baseline the lines that existed before the 1967 Middle East war, when it occupied the Gaza Strip and West Bank.

They say Israel needs to freeze all settlement construction in the occupied lands, including in east Jerusalem, which it annexed in a move never recognised by the international community.
Israel rejects such "preconditions."

As yet it is understood there is no Israeli agreement to meet demands for either a settlement freeze or a prisoner release.

A team of experts has been drawing up a plan to attract some $4 billion in private investment to shore up the struggling Palestinian economy, which Kerry repeated could boost GDP by 50% over three years.
A Palestinian official, who asked to remain anonymous, told AFP things were moving and Kerry was "determined" to announce a resumption of talks before he leaves the region.

But the atmosphere has been clouded by an EU decision barring any investment in Jewish settlement projects which has incensed Israel.

In a phone call with Kerry on Wednesday, Netanyahu said the EU move was "damaging efforts to restart the talks" with the Palestinians, an Israeli official said.

There are no immediate plans for Kerry to visit Israel and meet Netanyahu.

Review & Outlook: Red Lines in Syria, and Iran –

Red Lines in Syria, and Iran –


Netanyahu’s actions and Obama’s words.
‘I am not in the habit of saying what we did or we didn’t do,” Benjamin Netanyahu told CBS’s “Face the Nation” Sunday, when he was asked if Israel had carried out a July 5 attack in Syria against a cache of Russian-made anti-ship missiles. “My policy,” the Prime Minister added, “is to prevent the transfer of dangerous weapons to Hezbollah and other terror groups.”

So Israel has red lines after all. Mr. Netanyahu’s non-denial amounts to confirmation that Israel has launched at least four attacks on Syrian targets this year. Previous targets include a convoy of surface-to-air missiles headed for Lebanon, and an arms depot near Damascus believed to contain Iranian ballistic missiles that could have brought Tel Aviv within Hezbollah’s range.

Now consider another set of red lines. “We have been very clear to the Assad regime but also to other players on the ground that a red line for us is, we start seeing a whole bunch of [chemical] weapons moving around or being utilized,” President Obama warned on August 20, 2012. “That would change my calculus. That would change my equation.”

In March, Mr. Obama stressed “we will not tolerate the use of chemical weapons against the Syrian people, or the transfer of those weapons to terrorists. The world is watching; we will hold you accountable.”
Or not. As everyone—most especially Bashar Assad—now knows, Mr. Obama has no red lines regarding Syria or chemical weapons. Even his belated policy change to deliver small arms to the opposition is bogged down in bureaucratic inertia and congressional resistance. Readers may or may not think the U.S. should involve itself in Syria, but serious powers cannot issue empty threats and not expect consequences.

In his CBS interview, Mr. Netanyahu was also asked when he would be prepared to take military action to stop Iran’s nuclear programs. “Well, I can tell you I won’t wait until it’s too late,” he replied. The Prime Minister has been saying this for nearly two years, perhaps waiting for the U.S. to act instead, but he is learning in Syria that Israel will have to enforce its own red lines.

    Jacob will shout with joy, and Israel will rejoice.

Israel Has Launched Long-Shot Attacks Before – Wall Street Journal

Iran should take heed: In 1967, a pre-emptive strike on Egypt seemed impossible too.

Former Prime Minister Levi Eshkol in 1965.
Gamma-Keystone/Getty Images
Last week, Israel’s outgoing ambassador to the U.S., Michael Oren, sought to settle a long-running debate regarding Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s willingness to use military force to prevent Iran from acquiring nuclear weapons.

“Certainly,” Mr. Oren told daily newspaper Haaretz, “[Mr. Netanyahu] was the one who succeeded in drawing the world’s attention to the threat. . . . But this success is not enough. The question he faces is similar to the question that [former Prime Minister Levi] Eshkol faced in May 1967.”

As a close confidant to the prime minister and an award-winning historian of the Six Day War, Mr. Oren’s comparison of Mr. Netanyahu to Eshkol is an ominous one that shouldn’t be ignored.
Throughout its short history, the state of Israel has repeatedly shocked the world with bold military operations previously considered impossible, unthinkable, or borderline suicidal. On June 5, 1967, Eshkol sent most of Israel’s air force into Egypt for a surprise preemptive attack, which left less than a dozen warplanes to defend the entire homeland. In the six days that followed, Israel defeated multiple threatening Arab armies, changing the face of the Middle East to this day.
Since the Six Day War, successive Israeli leaders have signed off on daring operations that have entered the annals of history: the 1976 hostage rescue in Entebbe, Uganda, the bombing of Saddam Hussein’s Osiraq nuclear reactor in 1981 and the sneak attack to spoil Bashar al-Assad’s own nuclear ambitions in 2007, to name a few. Premiers like Eshkol, Yitzhak Rabin and Ehud Olmert embarked on each of these operations after becoming convinced that even their staunchest allies would not come to Israel’s assistance.

In the face of such choices, forget the intelligence estimates and risk assessments. It ultimately takes a do-or-die, all-or-nothing mindset to make a decision which could either bring complete victory, or considerable military defeat and diplomatic isolation. In this context, Mr. Netanyahu not only views Iran as an existential threat comparable to the Nazi Holocaust—he also wishes to be remembered as the one who personally delivered its demise. On this point, sources close to the prime minister assert that he keeps in his desk drawer World War II-era letters from the U.S. War Department, which decline requests by the World Jewish Congress to bomb gas chambers at Auschwitz.

Amid turmoil now in Egypt, bedlam in Syria and musings of reform from Iran’s newly elected President Hassan Rouhani, Mr. Netanyahu now fears that his campaign to stop Iran from going nuclear has been put on the international community’s back burner. Israel’s ambassador to the U.N., Ron Prosor, has repeatedly warned the Security Council that Iran’s nuclear program is racing forward like an express train, passing diplomatic efforts that lag behind on the local route. Recent statements by the Netanyahu administration indicate they believe that Iran’s nuclear train will arrive at its final destination by Nov. 2013 unless the international community intervenes.

Last month, Israeli Minister of Strategic Affairs Yuval Steinitz revealed Israel’s assessment that Iran is close to stockpiling 200 kilograms of 20% enriched uranium and repeated that acquiring 250 kilograms would constitute Mr. Netanyahu’s so-called “red line.” His assessment is in line with th International Atomic Energy Agency’s May 2013 report, which alleges that Iran possessed approximately 182 kilograms of 20% enriched uranium. With Iran’s current ability to stockpile roughly 15 kilograms of 20% enriched uranium per month, Iran could trigger a preemptive Israeli strike in less than four months.

Meanwhile, while Mr. Netanyahu may have faced resistance in the past to launching a preventative strike, current conditions at home and across the region may be the most optimal he has ever had. Since Jan. 2013, Israel has provoked Iran and its allies (at least) three times with airstrikes against weapons convoys destined to Hezbollah in Syria, albeit without any reaction. The incidents, which served to reduce fears of a regional conflagration, have clearly resonated with Israel’s various security chiefs, who have refrained from voicing any concerns about a strike on Iran, unlike their predecessors.

On July 14, Mr. Netanyahu commenced a widespread public and back-channel diplomacy campaign to re-rally Israel’s allies to commit to both a convincing military threat and additional economic sanctions against Iran. His hope is that such a stance by the world community would deter Iran’s decision makers from taking advantage of Mr. Rouhani’s transition period to advance the nuclear program beyond the point of no return. Iranian officials, meanwhile, have stated that nuclear negotiations with the West should be put on hold until after Mr. Rouhani’s cabinet is inaugurated in August. It is Jerusalem’s fear that by the time Iran and its negotiating partners agree on a timetable and venue for new talks, it may be too late.

Many Israeli pundits, as well as Ambassador Oren himself, have compared Mr. Netanyahu’s diplomatic push to Eshkol’s last-ditch efforts to convince Washington of the existential threats posed by Arab nations in the weeks before June 5, 1967. As in 1967, this is a conflict that Israel has been anticipating for years, building previously unused military capability and practicing its strategy in preparation for another surprise feat, which may ultimately shock the world once again.

Having recently announced its willingness to negotiate with President-elect Rouhani, the Obama administration should heed this history lesson, lest the U.S. and the international community be caught off guard by another Israeli-induced regional earthquake.

As the Bible accurately predicts, the world is asleep in this monumental time we live in. Israel is just a sideline headline next to the George Zimmerman case and all the fires, floods and general mayhem that are occurring on a weekly basis. The stage is set for the last act. I'm not being overly-dramatic (how can you over-dramatize the end of the age?); I have a good appreciation of the significance of Israel being back in the land after 2,500 years, surrounded by her enemies, and so should everyone reading this.

"US Secretary of State John Kerry will return to the region on Tuesday for the sixth time since taking office February 1, in a further effort to restart peace talks between Israel and the Palestinians, according to the Palestinian Authority’s chief negotiator."

Kerry is returning to negotiate the division of Israel after his wife's health scare. Very unwise.

2 Samuel 7:
8“Now go and say to my servant David, ‘This is what the LORD of Heaven’s Armies has declared: I took you from tending sheep in the pasture and selected you to be the leader of my people Israel. 9I have been with you wherever you have gone, and I have destroyed all your enemies before your eyes. Now I will make your name as famous as anyone who has ever lived on the earth! 10And I will provide a homeland for my people Israel, planting them in a secure place where they will never be disturbed. Evil nations won’t oppress them as they’ve done in the past

Ezekiel 37:
25They will live in the land I gave my servant Jacob, the land where their ancestors lived. They and their children and their grandchildren after them will live there forever, generation after generation. And my servant David will be their prince forever. 26And I will make a covenant of peace with them, an everlasting covenant. I will give them their land and increase their numbers, and I will put my Temple among them forever. 27I will make my home among them. I will be their God, and they will be my people. 28And when my Temple is among them forever, the nations will know that I am the LORD, who makes Israel holy.”

The Bible is very straight forward on the status of Israel, and the Bible is more than just a book, as everyone should have learned by now. We live in a world of hard-hearted people.

Let's tell the truth about Islam

Lying is a fundamental Islamic concept
Politicians and the MSM have been lying to you about Islam
The Quran-derived "taqiyya" concept is a core cause of systematically-failed U.S. peace initiatives in the Middle East; 1,400 years of intra-Muslim/Arab warfare and the lack of intra-Muslim/Arab comprehensive peace; the tenuous nature of intra-Muslim/Arab agreements; and the inherently shifty, unpredictable and violent intra-Muslim/Arab relations, as currently demonstrated on the chaotic, seismic Arab street.

Obama: arming Egypt before its participation in a Muslim war against Israel

BBC News - Egypt unrest: US to go ahead with F-16 jets delivery
"US massive military aid to Cairo would have to be cut by law if the removal of the Islamist leader is determined by Washington to have been a coup."

Obviously the definition of "coup" has been changed within the walls of the White House.

From the British Oxford dictionary then (afterall english came from the British):

Coup noun (plural coups /kuːz/)
  • 1 (also coup d'état) a sudden, violent, and illegal seizure of power from a government:he was overthrown in an army coup

    I don't know America, with that continued "leadership", unfortunately you'll endure more of God's punishing correction." Even John Kerry has been personally affected due to his plan for dividing Israel with the Islamist terrorists. Sad but true.

Coming to repentance because of a fear of God's wrath is not a bad thing

Jesus' message to the last church in Revelation:

Revelation 3:
15 “I know all the things you do, that you are neither hot nor cold. I wish that you were one or the other! 16 But since you are like lukewarm water, neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of my mouth! 17 You say, ‘I am rich. I have everything I want. I don’t need a thing!’ And you don’t realize that you are wretched and miserable and poor and blind and naked. 18 So I advise you to buy gold from me—gold that has been purified by fire. Then you will be rich. Also buy white garments from me so you will not be shamed by your nakedness, and ointment for your eyes so you will be able to see. 19 I correct and discipline everyone I love. So be diligent and turn from your indifference.

Luke 16:
27 “Then the rich man said, ‘Please, Father Abraham, at least send him to my father’s home. 28 For I have five brothers, and I want him to warn them so they don’t end up in this place of torment.’
29 “But Abraham said, ‘Moses and the prophets have warned them. Your brothers can read what they wrote.’
30 “The rich man replied, ‘No, Father Abraham! But if someone is sent to them from the dead, then they will repent of their sins and turn to God.’
31 “But Abraham said, ‘If they won’t listen to Moses and the prophets, they won’t listen even if someone rises from the dead.’”

Today's church is falling into Satan's trick by not mentioning hellfire. Satan doesn't want us to fear God or be occupied with preaching about eternal punishment in Hell; to Eve he says:

Genesis 3:
“Of course we may eat fruit from the trees in the garden,” the woman replied. “It’s only the fruit from the tree in the middle of the garden that we are not allowed to eat. God said, ‘You must not eat it or even touch it; if you do, you will die.’”
“You won’t die!” the serpent replied to the woman. “God knows that your eyes will be opened as soon as you eat it, and you will be like God, knowing both good and evil.”

Copts under the Gun: Religious Freedom in Egypt
"The Obama administration is enabling Christian persecution...

In Egypt, as expected, since the Obama-backed Brotherhood came to power, the persecution of Copts has practically been legalized, as unprecedented numbers of Christians — men, women, and children — have been arrested, often receiving more than double the maximum prison sentence, under the accusation that they “blasphemed” Islam or its prophet."
