From our good friends at the UN

THIRD Rocket Arsenal Found At UN School In Gaza
"The United Nations Relief & Works Agency For Palestine Refugees (UNRWA) announced Tuesday that another rocket stockpile has been found at one of its schools in Gaza. This instance marks the third time since the beginning of Operation Protective Edge that a weapons arsenal has been found at an UNRWA school in Gaza."

General Salami - funny guy. Sounds more like baloney than salami

Blah, blah, blah - Iran General: We Will Hunt Down Israelis House To House | The Daily Caller: "Salami, recalling previous wars Israel fought against Hezbollah in Lebanon, said: “The end of the Zionist regime [Israel] has arrived. Islamic movements are armed, missiles are positioned, and today we witness how the arms of the resistance in a corner of the Islamic world are controlling the events in the face of the tragic and barbaric attack by the Zionist regime against the oppressed and defenseless Palestinians in Gaza.”"

Oh, bring it on already, Iran. One has to be very patient knowing Biblical prophecy and waiting for world events to finally catch up.

Ezekiel 38:
25 “So now, this is what the Sovereign Lord says: I will end the captivity of my people; I will have mercy on all Israel, for I jealously guard my holy reputation! 26 They will accept responsibility for their past shame and unfaithfulness after they come home to live in peace in their own land, with no one to bother them. 27 When I bring them home from the lands of their enemies, I will display my holiness among them for all the nations to see. 28 Then my people will know that I am the Lord their God, because I sent them away to exile and brought them home again. I will leave none of my people behind. 29 And I will never again turn my face from them, for I will pour out my Spirit upon the people of Israel. I, the Sovereign Lord, have spoken!”

What Time Is It?

By Ellis Skolfield

First: The beginning of “the Time of the End” should be determined by Scripture, not by me. 

Luke 21:24 states: “And they (contextually the Jews) shall fall by the edge of the sword, and shall be led away captive into all nations: and Jerusalem shall be trodden down of the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled.”

That is a biblical given, but what does "trodden down of the Gentiles" mean? Governmental control not necessarily ethnic purity. When you look at the pre-Christian historic record, when a conquer defeated another kingdom, the first thing the new potentate did was make the defeated monarch bow down before him and the new King would place his foot on the deposed king’s neck. Thus the term, "trodden down." There are ample pictorial records all over the Middle East showing this practice.

Jerusalem was freed of Gentile governmental control on June 6, 1967, the historic reality we cannot deny, therefore we are no longer in "the time of the Gentiles." So you have to ask, if we're not in the time of the Gentiles what kind of time are we now in? Well, searching prophetic literature from end-to-end, the only other epochal time I could find was Daniels "time of the end." Ergo, we must be in “the Time of the End.”

Second: The parable of the fig tree.

Matthew 24:32-33, “Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh: So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors.”

Now the Lord Jesus has not gone to the cross yet so the Old Testament Levitical code is still in force. As a result, we need to look in the Old Testament to find the definition for figurative language in the Gospels. In Jeremiah 24:1-7 and in Hosea 9:10 we find Israel figuratively identified as a fig tree.

Hosea 9:10 “I found Israel like grapes in the wilderness; I saw your fathers as t he firstripe in the fig tree at her first time.”

Then as Jesus was going up to Jerusalem for the final time, he said the following . . .

Mark 11:13-14, 11:21-22 “And seeing a fig tree afar off having leaves, he (Jesus) came, if haply he might find any thing thereon: and when he came to it, he found nothing but leaves. And Jesus answered and said unto it, ‘No man eat fruit of thee hereafter for ever.’ And his disciples heard it. . . . And in the morning, as they passed by, they saw the fig tree dried up from the roots.  And Peter . . . saith unto him, ‘Master, behold, the fig tree which thou cursedst is withered away.’ And Jesus answering saith unto them, ‘Have faith in God.’”

Now do you believe Jesus was worried about figs, or could He be He implying, have faith in God and you too, can curse a fig tree? Of course not, that fig tree is being used as a figurative example of Israel. Jesus knows He is going to the Cross and that the Christian era will begin shortly thereafter. As a result, the Jewish faith will not grow beyond the Jewish people, but the church will cover the whole Earth. Nevertheless, have faith in God for the people with whom He made an everlasting,.

Matthew 24:32-33 “Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves (not spiritual fruit), ye know that summer is nigh: So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors.”

Luke 21:31-32 “So likewise ye, when ye see these things come to pass, know ye that the kingdom of God is nigh at hand. Verily I say unto you, This generation (of the fig tree putting forth leaves, i.e., the new nation of Israel being established in 1948) shall not pass away, till all be fulfilled.” (that’s everything, including the return of Jesus).

New Israel is the Fig Tree Generation

Luke 21:29-33 “And he spake to them a parable; Behold the fig tree (Israel), and all the trees (the surrounding nations); When they now shoot forth (leaves not spiritual fruit), ye see and know of your own selves that summer is now nigh at hand. So likewise ye, when ye see these things come to pass, know ye that the kingdom of God is nigh at hand. Verily I say unto you, This generation (of the people who were alive and helped Israel become a nation in 1948) shall not pass away (shall still be alive), till all be fulfilled (at the return of Jesus). Heaven and earth shall pass away: but my words shall not pass away.”

Jesus Warns Today’s Church!
Luke 21:34-36 “And take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting, and drunkenness, and cares of this life, and so that day come upon you unawares. For as a snare shall it come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth. Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.”

Iran Supreme Leader: The Only Solution For Crisis Is Israel’s Destruction

The Ayatollah Calls (again) for Israel's Destruction
"The armed confrontation must expand beyond Gaza"
The world is rapidly approaching the Gog & Magog war of Ezekiel 38. Putin is acting without restraint against the Ukraine, while Obama, leader of Israel's only powerful ally, is asleep at the switch and disrespected worldwide, except amongst the Ummah.

No reason why Iran can't have nukes, fortunately they only want fission for power production and a little itsy bit for medical isotopes. [/sarcasm off]

Obama vs. Romney on Russia - Cold war rekindled and Obama's fundraising for the Dem's

Israel: the biggest, baddest bully (lol) Obviously this is a spiritual war. Islam just wants a little more land, then we'll have peace

Bob Dylan (nee Robert Allen Zimmerman)

Well, the neighborhood bully, he's just one man,
His enemies say he's on their land.
They got him outnumbered about a million to one,
He got no place to escape to, no place to run.
He's the neighborhood bully.

The neighborhood bully just lives to survive,
He's criticized and condemned for being alive.
He's not supposed to fight back, he's supposed to have thick skin,
He's supposed to lay down and die when his door is kicked in.
He's the neighborhood bully.

The neighborhood bully been driven out of every land,
He's wandered the earth an exiled man.
Seen his family scattered, his people hounded and torn,
He's always on trial for just being born.
He's the neighborhood bully.

Well, he knocked out a lynch mob, he was criticized,
Old women condemned him, said he should apologize.
Then he destroyed a bomb factory, nobody was glad.
The bombs were meant for him.
He was supposed to feel bad.
He's the neighborhood bully.

Well, the chances are against it and the odds are slim
That he'll live by the rules that the world makes for him,
'Cause there's a noose at his neck and a gun at his back
And a license to kill him is given out to every maniac.
He's the neighborhood bully.

He got no allies to really speak of.
What he gets he must pay for, he don't get it out of love.
He buys obsolete weapons and he won't be denied
But no one sends flesh and blood to fight by his side.
He's the neighborhood bully.

Well, he's surrounded by pacifists who all want peace,
They pray for it nightly that the bloodshed must cease.
Now, they wouldn't hurt a fly.
To hurt one they would weep.
They lay and they wait for this bully to fall asleep.
He's the neighborhood bully.

Every empire that's enslaved him is gone,
Egypt and Rome, even the great Babylon.
He's made a garden of paradise in the desert sand,
In bed with nobody, under no one's command.
He's the neighborhood bully.

Now his holiest books have been trampled upon,
No contract he signed was worth what it was written on.
He took the crumbs of the world and he turned it into wealth,
Took sickness and disease and he turned it into health.
He's the neighborhood bully.

What's anybody indebted to him for?
Nothin', they say.
He just likes to cause war.
Pride and prejudice and superstition indeed,
They wait for this bully like a dog waits to feed.
He's the neighborhood bully.

What has he done to wear so many scars?
Does he change the course of rivers?
Does he pollute the moon and stars?
Neighborhood bully, standing on the hill,
Running out the clock, time standing still,
Neighborhood bully.

Netanyahu: IDF prepared for expansion of ground op | The Times of Israel
"Abbas heads to Turkey for ceasefire talks; IDF soldier killed overnight in Gaza identified as Eitan Barak, 20, from Herzliya; at least 14 Hamas fighters killed since troops entered Strip; IDF tackling Hamas tunnels, infrastructure"
Isaiah 11:
13 Then at last the jealousy between Israel and Judah will end.
    They will not be rivals anymore.
14 They will join forces to swoop down on Philistia to the west.
    Together they will attack and plunder the nations to the east.
They will occupy the lands of Edom and Moab,
    and Ammon will obey them.

Truce? What truce?

Humanitarian truce ends; officials deny reports of ceasefire | The Times of Israel: "Rocket fire on Israel resumes as truce runs out at 3 p.m.; IDF thwarts cross-border attack, killing Hamas gunmen as they emerge from tunnel; Israel, Palestinian teams in Cairo for ceasefire contacts"


Hamas tried sending a commando team through a tunnel snaking under the Gaza border for a large-scale terrorist attack or kidnap early Thursday, July 17.  As the group of 13-30 started coming to the surface near Kibbutz Sufa, some 15 km from the southern Gaza Strip, it ran into heavy IDF fire. Some were killed; the rest turned tail to escape through the tunnel and reach home. Israeli helicopters bombed the tunnel which exploded, and went on to scour the area around the Gaza Strip for more attempted incursions, through the honeycomb of secret tunnels Hamas has sunk for terrorist attacks and kidnaps.
debkafile quotes Israeli and Western military experts as estimating that the prospects of an Israeli ground incursion into the Gaza Strip are now more real than the chances of a ceasefire. There is little substance to the reports that Hamas and Israeli delegations are in Cairo to discuss various drafts of a ceasefire accord.

No to "2-state solution"

Netanyahu finally speaks his mind | The Times of Israel
"At his Friday press conference, the prime minister ruled out full Palestinian sovereignty, derided the US approach to Israeli security, and set out his Middle East overview with unprecedented candor. His remarks were not widely reported; they should be"

Monday, July 14, 2014

No other country in the world would put up with a continuous threat like this. Interesting that the left-leaning world has the audacity to try and restrain Israel's response to Hamas terrorists - chief among them is the Obamanation Administration.

Peace is the only path to true security for Israel and the Palestinians
"In an exclusive article for Haaretz's Israel Conference on Peace, Barack Obama says that the only solution is a democratic, Jewish state living side-by-side in peace and security with a viable, independent Palestinian state."

Blah, blah, would be helpful if Hussein Obama (peace be upon him) wasn't a supporter of the religion of death, dismemberment, subjugation and pure evil, and if the Palestinians would stop promoting hate toward Israel and for Israel's destruction.

Let's not forget, the current skirmish started because Hamas launched rockets at Israel. Israel is merely responding to an attack on their homeland.

An Israeli victory is inevitable, but praying for a quick one

"Four Israeli soldiers lightly injured in battle, after entering Gaza for the first time in Operation Protective Edge"

Praying that a Hamas rocket hits the Al Aqsa mosque and Dome of the Rock in Jerusalem. That would be most excellent!

Psalm 121:
1I look up to the mountains—
does my help come from there?
2My help comes from the LORD,
who made heaven and earth!
3He will not let you stumble;
the one who watches over you will not slumber.
4Indeed, he who watches over Israel
never slumbers or sleeps.

Hamas fires major barrage at Tel Aviv, central Israel; Israel stages heavy raids on Gaza
"Operation Protective Edge continues for a fifth day Saturday, over 500 rockets have been fired from Gaza at Israel, with several direct hits and several Israelis injured. Rockets fired throughout the day targeted communities near the Gaza Strip as well as Beersheba, Ashdod, Ashkelon, Rehovot and Rishon Lezion.

The Israeli Air Force carried out around 60 air strikes in the Gaza Strip overnight Friday, and over 1,000 airstrikes since the operation began. Palestinian reports say at least 130 Palestinians have been killed. Prime Minister Netanyahu said Friday all Gaza casualties are the fault and responsibility of Hamas, which uses Gazans as human shields while Israel does its best to avoid hitting civilians."

Israel is surrounded by her enemies. Be wary.

Netanyahu floats exit plan: Let Hamas rule Gaza, leave the IDF in control of West Bank security:
"This is consistent with the policies Netanyahu has pursued for five years.
In his televised news conference Friday, the prime minister publicly admitted for the first time the presence of al Qaeda forces around Israel’s borders – to the east, in Iraq and Jordan; to the north, in Syria and Lebanon; and to the south in the Gaza Strip and Sinai."

Rouhani: 'Palestinians will defeat Zionist regime'
Iranian President Hassan Rouhani sent letters to Muslim world leaders and urged them to do their upmost to break what he called the siege on Gaza. "The unity of Muslim nations against our enemies is essential at this juncture," said Rouhani.

"To help the oppressed Palestinian people and prevent the Zionist regime from committing its horrors is the responsibility of all the international organizations and the countries that love freedom in the world," he stressed. "The Palestinian people, who are difficult to subdue, will no doubt defeat the Zionist regime."

Iran's president calling for the unity of Muslims against Israel is significant. Eventually Iran will attack Israel; will it be for the "Palestinian cause?" If so, how close are we to the war of Ezekiel 38-39?

IDF urges Gazans near border to clear out; West Bank attack thwarted
"Hamas rocket chief killed; missiles downed in Beersheba; shrapnel falls in south Tel Aviv, damaging cars and gas station; Fatah-linked group claims to shoot rocket; Dimona targeted; Palestinian death toll climbs"

Top Obama official blasts Israel for denying Palestinians sovereignty, security, dignity
How can Israel have peace if it’s unwilling to delineate a border, end the occupation?’ asks White House Mideast chief, Phillip Gordon, in blistering Tel Aviv speech.

"Jerusalem “should not take for granted the opportunity to negotiate” such a treaty with Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas, who has proven to be a reliable partner, Gordon said."

Ahh, without being a stickler for details, didn't Abbas just take Hamas in as part of the Palestinian Authority? Doesn't Hamas have the 'destruction of Israel' as a goal written in its charter? More Obama nonsense.

Honestly America, where do you find these "experts" to represent you? Sad two terms for America.

Israel eyes ground op in Gaza; Netanyahu: Gloves are off
"Israel launched a major operation against Gaza in the early hours of Tuesday morning, dubbed Operation Protective Edge, following heavy Hamas rocket fire over the preceding days. "

Joel 3:
“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.

Armageddon on the doorstep: the ISIS conquest of Iraq leads to Jerusalem – are you ready for the next world war?

As we witness the brutalization of Iraq by the ISIS terror organization consider this: this Islamic march of death leads to Jerusalem. The leading result of the call of the people in the Arab world for the overthrow of unsatisfactory leaders has been their cause being hijacked by insurgent jihadist terrorists.

We saw that in Libya with the fall of Gadhafi. We saw it in Egypt where Mubarak was replaced by the Muslim Brotherhood, in this case an in-house jihadist movement. We see it in Syria where the people’s cry against Assad has led to an influx of Al-Qaida type groups vying for dominance. Now we witness the conquest of Iraq by a vicious Islamic terror regime against which Al-Qaida pales into moderation.

The Islamic State of Iraq (ISIS) is headed by Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi. He transformed a few small terror cells into the most brutal and lethal terror group on earth. Mercy is not in this man’s vocabulary. Abu Bakr picked up the mantle after Abu Omar al Baghdadi was killed in a joint U.S.-Iraqi operation in 2010. Al-Qaida in Iraq was under the leadership of Abu Musab al-Zarqawi who, in a 2005 letter to the head of Al-Qaida, Ayman al-Zawahiri, put the aims of Al-Qaida in Iraq into four stages;

1. Drive America out of Iraq.

2. Create a Caliphate in Iraq.

3. Use that as a base to attack other countries.

4. Attack Israel.

When both al-Zarqawi and al-Baghdadi were killed by American forces it looked as if Al-Qaida was decimated in Iraq, but Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi reformed a weakening terror group by leading it in battle, honing its fighters’ training and experience in Iraq and Syria, and by using political savvy to link his growing group to local and tribal demands and interests. It became both a fighting force and a social benefactor, winning local hearts and minds along a bloody path of victory. He absorbed the al-Nusra Front terror group in Syria into his ranks, demanding their obedience. Seeing the growing threat, Al-Qaida’s al-Zarqawi, from his hiding place somewhere in Afghanistan or Pakistan, criticized ISIS for not concentrating on Iraq. In response, a confident ISIS hit back, accusing the Al-Qaida chief of “Sheikh Osama (bin Laden) gathered all the mujahedeen with one word, but you divided them and tore them apart.”

ISIS has attracted thousands of foreign fighters to its ranks, increasing its power and size. The shockwaves caused by its Iraqi Blitzkreig in seizing the towns of Mosul, Tikrit, and Fallujah was met by a mocking response by ISIS.

“The battle is not yet raging, but it will rage in Baghdad and Karbala. Put on your belts and get ready” as they contemptuously called Iraqi leader, Nouri al-Maliki, an “underwear salesman.”

Clearly, the battle for Iraq is along sectarian lines with the Sunni ISIS, representing the majority of Iraqis, challenging the Shia al-Maliki rule. Clear also was al-Maliki’s refusal to allow American forces to stay on in Iraq, but the ISIS victories were enhanced by the military vacuum in Iraq following the American pullout, and this responsibility can be put at Obama’s White House door.

Obama’s self-proclaimed foreign-policy “achievements” have been U.S. troop withdrawals from Iraq, and “Al-Qaida has been decimated and is on the run!” These two boasts have now come back to haunt him. Al-Qaida has morphed into a bigger monster that is about to take over Iraq. And what was President Obama’s response?

“We don’t have the resources. Let the local leaders deal with them.”

This is shortsighted weakness, and dangerous. This was emphasized on Friday, June 13, when Obama, confronted by the deteriorating situation in Iraq, decided to head off to California for a fund-raising event and some golf. America spilled blood and treasure in Iraq including 4500 lives, $17 billion in military training to Iraqi forces, and $15 billion in military equipment. Now ISIS terrorists are seen driving around in American military Humvees.

The United States embassy in Baghdad is the largest global American embassy. It has 15,000 workers. It would be a mistake to think that they did not pick up intelligence on the gathering Islamic terror storm. They did, and it fed it up the chain to the State Department and the White House, for months. Neither of those bodies acted on the intel. As one staffer told Lt. Colonel Ralph Peters,

“We couldn’t convince the President that this is serious!”

Now the Baghdad embassy could be under ISIS fire, making Benghazi look like child’s play. And the attack on Americans will not end there. Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi was captured, imprisoned, and then released by America in Iraq, just as Obama recently released the five top Al-Qaida/Taliban prisoners at Gitmo.

America, and others, will pay for both these foolish gestures. As Ken King, the commander of the Bucco Camp that was ordered to release al-Baghdadi, related on the Fox News “Kelly Files” program, as a parting shot the ISIS leader glared at King and warned:

“I’ll see you in New York!”

In a strange twist on “the enemy of my enemy is my friend,” Republican lawmakers called for a partnership with Iran to stop ISIS from attacking Baghdad. Senator Lindsey Graham warned that ISIS “will eventually march on Jordan and Lebanon. They’re going to take the King of Jordan down.” The unspoken implication is that Israel will be next. ISIS is now pumping Iraqi oil. It grabbed half a trillion dollars when it seized Iraq’s central bank in Mosul making it the richest terrorist organization in the world. ISIS has been called too extreme for Al-Qaida with justification. Al-Baghdadi is being crowned “the next Bin Laden.”

ISIS is guilty of wholesale massacres in Syria, leaving the bodies to rot for all to see. It beheaded a top rival rebel commander, leaving his head in the middle of the market. Amnesty International listed a few of their atrocities in their 18-page report “Rule of fear;ISIS abuses in detention is northern Syria.”

“They have conducted hundreds of executions, beheadings, even crucifixions in Mosul, Iraq. They destroy anything that is not Islamic, such as the Assyrian Church in Mosul. Hundreds have been slain for being “infidels.”

Once Islamic ISIS establishes its permanent presence in Iraq, as Hizb’allah has done in Lebanon and Hamas in Gaza, it will strengthen its grip on Syria. While looking down on Israel from the Golan Heights, it is likely to turn its attention to a militarily weak Lebanon, seeking to remove the Shiite Hizb’allah from power, taking over its armory of a hundred thousand rockets, and taking control of that country.

From its northern stronghold in Iraq, Lebanon, and Syria it will target Jordan with the intention of deposing, or killing, the Hashemite king, as a preliminary step to taking over his country. If America, Egypt, and Saudi Arabia do not immediately move to strengthen the kingdom, King Abdullah will be exposed to mortal danger, granting ISIS control over Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, and Jordan in their march to a global Caliphate, and Stage 4 of their original plan. Israel would be advised to keep a sharp eye on future moves by ISIS to attack or infiltrate Jordan via Syria.

Who is to say that radical Palestinians and Islamists in Jordan will not open the gates of that country to ISIS, just as Syrians reached out to them at their cost? When that scenario is achieved, Israel will be exposed to a threatening and powerful terror enemy stretching from Rosh HaNikra on the northern Mediterranean to Mount Hermon in the northeast of Israel, sweeping through the Golan Heights and down the Jordan Valley to the Dead Sea and the Red Sea in the south. In the turmoil that is the Middle East, where regimes are falling and nations are toppling, who is to say that such a nightmare scenario is not possible unless ISIS is stopped in its tracks now?

Iran Leader: The Islamic Messiah Is Coming To Free The World. Oh, and kill all non-Muslims 
"Iran’s supreme leader is promising a world free of infidels and nonbelievers with the coming of the Islamic messiah, Mahdi, a 9th-century descendant of the prophet Mohammad whom the Shiites refer to as the 12th Imam."

Good thing we have Obama and Kerry in charge of nuclear negotiations. Whew! Now, if only they weren't so busy being allied with Iran against ISIS/ISIL.

War around Israel is inevitable. Is this the start of the end?

Escalation scenario starting to fulfill itself - Israel Opinion, Ynetnews
"In such a war, the Israeli home front will be hit with a large amount of missiles and rockets and will become, like the home front in Gaza and possibly in Lebanon, a main battlefield."

What happens in Israel matters to the rest of the world. You can watch Israel like a countdown clock, counting down to the end of this age. Sounds ominous, but isn't that exactly what the Bible tells us to watch for after Israel becomes a reborn nation in her land? Of course it is!

The fact that an identifiable group of people came together again, after enormous persecution, and re-formed Israel in one day, is ample proof that the Bible is true. Expect the rest to be fulfilled as well.

Isaiah 66:

Who has ever seen anything as strange as this?
    Who ever heard of such a thing?
Has a nation ever been born in a single day?
    Has a country ever come forth in a mere moment?
But by the time Jerusalem’s birth pains begin,
    her children will be born.
Would I ever bring this nation to the point of birth
    and then not deliver it?” asks the Lord.
“No! I would never keep this nation from being born,”
    says your God.
10 “Rejoice with Jerusalem!
    Be glad with her, all you who love her
    and all you who mourn for her.
11 Drink deeply of her glory
    even as an infant drinks at its mother’s comforting breasts.”
12 This is what the Lord says:
“I will give Jerusalem a river of peace and prosperity.
    The wealth of the nations will flow to her.
Her children will be nursed at her breasts,
    carried in her arms, and held on her lap.
13 I will comfort you there in Jerusalem
    as a mother comforts her child.”
14 When you see these things, your heart will rejoice.
    You will flourish like the grass!
Everyone will see the Lord’s hand of blessing on his servants—
    and his anger against his enemies.
15 See, the Lord is coming with fire,
    and his swift chariots roar like a whirlwind.
He will bring punishment with the fury of his anger
    and the flaming fire of his hot rebuke.
16 The Lord will punish the world by fire
    and by his sword.
He will judge the earth,
    and many will be killed by him.

Israel Hayom | Count to 10, and act in full force

[Sahih Bukhari, volume 4, book 52, number 176] narrated 'Abdullah bin 'Umar: Allah’s apostle said, "you (i.e. Muslims) will fight with the Jews till some of them will hide behind stones. the stones will (betray them) saying, 'o 'Abdullah (i.e. slave of Allah)! there is a Jew hiding behind me; so kill him.'”

Israel Hayom | Count to 10, and act in full force
"I counted to 10. And what now? How do we change the reality, not out of vengeance but out of a determination and sense of responsibility for our children's futures, a sentiment that has never been a component of Palestinian considerations? How do we prevent the next attack and create a chance for progress?

 We need courageous leadership to look at the big picture and understand that the terrorist armies and states around us are an existential threat. The answer is hard and painful to hear. There, without responding tempestuously, without making empty promises and threats, we have no choice but to eliminate Hamas in Gaza, from its leadership down to the very last of its terrorists. No pinpoint assassinations, no increasing our deterrence, no special operation -- a war over our right to exist."

The Obamanation weighs in

Useless Obummer Urges Israel Not to 'Destabilize Situation' (if you can believe it) 
Obama urges Netanyahu to do as he does, that is: nothing (after drawing scary red lines)

President Obama urged Israeli leaders not to “destabilize the situation” following the discovery of the bodies of three teenagers, including one American citizen, who were kidnapped by Hamas, according to Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu."

Counting down the months until the Obama'nation is gone. Will America survive his presidency?

US President Barack Obama urged “all parties to “refrain from steps that could further destabilize the situation” and encouraged Israel and the Palestinians “to work together to find those responsible for the crime with US support.”

The Palestinian alliance with Hamas perpetrated these murders, you dolt! That's what joints do to the brain, I guess.

Muslims beware. The only God is not yours.

Report: Arabs Attacked IDF Ambulance Transporting Bodies of Murdered Israeli Teens
"Palestinian Arabs attacked an Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) ambulance humvee on Monday that was transporting the recently discovered bodies of three murdered Israeli boys who were kidnapped on June 12, an Israeli source told The Algemeiner."

If this is true, I'd say it's time to clean up Gaza and reverse the damage that Sharon did. We need a King David, or better - Jesus Christ himself who will do the following. Here Isaiah illustrates a Jesus who most people don't know. He is love, but he's also all about justice and yes, even vengeance.

Isaiah 63:
Judgment against the Lord’s Enemies
Who is this who comes from Edom,
    from the city of Bozrah,
    with his clothing stained red?
Who is this in royal robes,
    marching in his great strength?
“It is I, the Lord, announcing your salvation!
    It is I, the Lord, who has the power to save!”
Why are your clothes so red,
    as if you have been treading out grapes?
“I have been treading the winepress alone;
    no one was there to help me.
In my anger I have trampled my enemies
    as if they were grapes.
In my fury I have trampled my foes.
    Their blood has stained my clothes.
For the time has come for me to avenge my people,
    to ransom them from their oppressors.

I was amazed to see that no one intervened
    to help the oppressed.
So I myself stepped in to save them with my strong arm,
    and my wrath sustained me.
I crushed the nations in my anger
    and made them stagger and fall to the ground,
    spilling their blood upon the earth.”
