AMID JERUSALEM ANGER, JORDAN MPS VOTE TO REVIEW PEACE DEAL WITH ISRAEL
Image is Jordanian Parliment
The measure is unlikely to lead to concrete changes as the king is in charge of the country's foreign
affairs
By Dov Lieber - December 10, 2017
Amid mounting anger over the US decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, the Jordanian
parliament on Sunday voted unanimously to review the 1994 peace deal with Israel.
The parliament authorized a legal committee to examine all agreements signed with Israel, including the
peace treaty, in order to take a decision on them, the leading Jordanian daily al-Ghad reported. The step is seen as largely symbolic as matters of foreign policy are mostly decided by Jordan’s Royal court rather than parliament. Jordan has strong security relations with Israel, while social and civil communications between the two countries remains low.
Israel and Jordan are also currently embroiled in a dispute after an Israeli security guard at the embassy in Jordan shot and killed a teen who tried to stab him. A bystander was also killed. Jordan has refused to allow the embassy staff to return until the guard has been put on trial. Israel believes he acted in self-defense.
Thousands of Jordanians took to the streets on Friday in order to protest Trump’s decision on recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s capital. Jordan has a special stake in Jerusalem. Its monarch is the religious guardian of the Muslim holy sites on
the Temple Mount, and the kingdom has a large Palestinian population. In a Wednesday address from the White House, Trump defied worldwide warnings and insisted that after repeated failures to achieve peace a new approach was long overdue, describing his decision to recognize Jerusalem as the seat of Israel’s government as merely based on reality.
The move was hailed by Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and by leaders across much of the Israeli
political spectrum. Trump stressed that he was not specifying the boundaries of Israeli sovereignty in the city, and called for no change in the status quo at the city’s holy sites. AFP contributed to this report.

ARAB STATES URGE U.S. TO ABANDON JERUSALEM MOVE
Foreign ministers late on Saturday urged the United States to abandon its decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital, saying the move would increase violence throughout the region. The announcement by President Donald Trump on Wednesday was a "dangerous violation of international law," had no legal impact and was "void," the Arab League said in a statement after a session attended by all its members in Cairo. Trump's endorsement of Israel's claim to all of Jerusalem as its capital would reverse long-standing U.S. policy that the city's status must be decided in negotiations with the Palestinians, who want East Jerusalem as the capital of their future state.
"The decision has no legal effect ... it deepens tension, ignites anger and threatens to plunge region into more violence and chaos," the Arab League said at 3 a.m. local time after hours of meetings that began on Saturday evening.
It said it would seek a U.N. Security Council resolution rejecting the U.S. move.
Lebanon's Foreign Minister Gebran Bassil said during the emergency meeting that Arab nations should consider imposing economic sanctions against the United States to prevent it moving its Israel embassy to Jerusalem from Tel Aviv.
"Pre-emptive measures (must be) taken ... beginning with diplomatic measures, then political, then economic and financial sanctions," he said, without giving specific details.

ERDOGEN ON TRUMP'S 'UNACCEPTABLE RECOGNITION: JERUSALEM IS 'OUR RED LINE''
Turkish president also slams Syrian leader Assad as 'terrorist' who 'has killed close to a million of his citizens'
By AGENCIES and TOI STAFF - Today, 4:35 pm 2141
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Wednesday said his country would not tolerate the recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital. “Jerusalem is our red line. Any steps against Jerusalem’s historic status and holiness are unacceptable,” Erdogan said, adding that his country will work toward international recognition of the Palestinian state and seek the support of the European Union. In a move that delighted much of Israel’s leadership but ignited protests across the Muslim world, US President Donald Trump announced on December 6 that the US recognized Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and planned to move its embassy there from Tel Aviv. Trump stressed that he was not specifying the boundaries of Israeli sovereignty in the city, and called for no change in the status quo at the city’s holy sites.
Erdogan spoke during a visit to Tunisia at the end of a four-day Africa trip focusing on economic issues.
At a joint news conference with Tunisian President Beji Caid Essebsi, Erdogan called Assad a “terrorist who engaged in state terrorism” and should not be part of Syria’s post-conflict future.

THE REAL PALESTINIAN RESPONSE TO TRUMP'S JERUSALEM SPEECH
By Bassam Tawil - By misrepresenting the poster burning "ceremony" as a reflection of widespread Palestinian rage concerning Trump's policy on Jerusalem, the international media is once again complicit in promoting the propaganda of Palestinian spin doctors. The journalists, including photographers and camera crews, have been handed detailed schedules of events that will take place in different parts of the West Bank and Gaza Strip.
When we sit in our living rooms and watch the news coming out of the West Bank and Gaza Strip, let us ask ourselves: How many of these "events" are, in fact, media burlesques? Why are journalists allowing themselves to be duped by the Palestinian propaganda machine, which spews hatred and violence from morning until night?
It is high time for some self-reflection on the part of the media: Do they really wish to continue serving as a mouthpiece for those Arabs and Muslims who intimidate and terrorize the West? The "rivers of blood" we are being promised are flowing as we speak. Yet, it is the knife that Arabs and Muslims take to one another's throats that is the source of this crimson current, not some statement made by a US president. Perhaps that could finally be an event worth covering by the roving reporters of the region?
A short three hours after US President Donald Trump phoned Palestinian Authority (PA) President Mahmoud Abbas to inform him of his intention to move the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, a number of Palestinian photojournalists received a phone call from Bethlehem. The callers were Palestinian "activists," who invited the photographers to come to the city to document an "important event." When the photographers arrived, they discovered that the "important event" was a handful of Palestinian "activists" who wanted to burn posters of Trump in front of the cameras. The "activists" waited patiently as the photojournalists and cameramen set up their equipment to get the "important event" on film. Shortly thereafter, the media was abuzz with reports about "angry Palestinian protesters taking to the streets to protest" Trump's intention to move the embassy to Jerusalem and his recognition of the city as the capital of Israel. The handful of Palestinians who were filmed burning the Trump pictures were made to look as if they were part of a mass protest sweeping Palestinian communities. https://www.gatestoneinstitute.org/11508/trump-jerusalem-speech-palestinians

ISRAELI WARPLANES BATTER GAZA WITH MISSILES AFTER DAY OF RAGE OVER TRUMP'S JERUSALEM ANNOUNCEMENT
Air strikes injure 15 after terrorists launched rocket attack
Terrorists fired rockets from the Gaza strip to Israel last night - one fell short, one was stopped, one hit city. In retaliation, Israeli warplanes hit Gaza with missiles targeting military bases and killing two Hamas members. Today Palestinian protesters marched on Israel border after Trump recognised Jerusalem as Israel's capital
By By Jake Wallis Simons, Associate Global Editor, In Jerusalem - December 9, 2017
Israeli warplanes rained down missiles on Gaza overnight in retaliation for rockets shot into Israel as violent protests continued today following Donald Trump's recognition of Jerusalem as the country's capital. Targets included two weapons manufacturing sites, a military compound and an arsenal. Reports in Gaza said that 15 people were injured in the strikes, including a six-month-old boy. Two members of Hamas were killed by strikes on the Hamas facility at Nusseirat in central Gaza, officials said. The attack was a response to rocket fire from the Gaza Strip on Friday which forced Israeli civilians in the south of the country to run for cover as air raid sirens blared for the first time since the unrest began. One rocket fell short, the second was intercepted by Israel's Iron Dome missile defence system, and one landed in the southern Israeli city of Sderot, damaging property but causing no casualties.
The Israeli Defence Force blamed Palestine for the deaths and injuries caused by its retaliation. It said in a statement: 'The IDF views the shooting at Israeli communities severely. Hamas is solely responsible for what happens in the Gaza Strip.'
Palestinian protesters burn tyres during clashes with Israeli troops following protests on the streets of Israel

As the violence intensified, police forcibly closed shops along the streets. Dramatic video taken by MailOnline reporter Jake Wallis Simons showed mounted Israeli police, backed up by officers shooting teargas, violently dispersing a demonstration in the heart of Arab East Jerusalem.

POPE FRANCIS CRITICIZES PRESIDENT TRUMP FOR RECOGNIZING JERUSALEM
December 6, 2017 - By sundance - The Holy Father, Pope ‘Marxist‘ Francis, continues to affirm a legacy best described as a political activist in the Vatican. A far-left religious figurehead for Catholics who prefer, well, a more totalitarian flavor within their faith. As such, Pope Francis advocates for the UN position toward Israel; which is to quietly say, get rid of it.

POPE WORRIED OVER TRUMP'S PLAN ON JERUSALEM
By Reuters - December 6, 2017 - VATICAN CITY - Pope Francis, speaking hours before U.S. President Donald Trump’s announcement on Jerusalem, called on Wednesday for the city’s “status quo” to be respected, saying new tension in the Middle East would further inflame world conflicts. Trump is due on Wednesday to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and set in motion the relocation of the U.S. Embassy to the ancient city, senior U.S. officials said, a decision that upends decades of U.S. policy and risks fueling further violence in the Middle East. In an appeal at the end of his weekly general audience, Francis called for all to honor United Nations resolutions on the city, which is sacred to Jews, Christians and Muslims.
“I make a heartfelt appeal so that all commit themselves to respecting the status quo of the city, in conformity with the pertinent resolutions of the United Nations,” he said. The Vatican backs a two-state solution to the Palestinian-Israeli conflict, with both sides agreeing on the status of Jerusalem as part of the peace process. Palestinians want East Jerusalem as the capital of their future independent state, whereas Israel has declared the whole city to be its “united and eternal” capital. The pope told thousands of people at his general audience: “I cannot keep quiet about my deep worry about the situation that has been created in the last few days.”

CAN THE UN SECURITY COUNCIL REVERSE TRUMP'S JERUSALEM RECOGNITION?
By JNS - December 11, 2017 - "I will not violate My covenant, or change what I have uttered.” Psalms 89:35 (The Israel Bible™)
The Palestinians are pushing the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) to demand that the US reverse its recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.
At an emergency session of the UNSC on Friday convened by eight of the council’s 15 members, 14 member states condemned the US move.
“We are satisfied that there are 14 countries in the Security Council that are defending international law, defending Security Council resolutions as they relate to Jerusalem and rejecting the unilateral, illegal decisions by President [Donald] Trump two days ago,” said Palestinian Ambassador to the UN Riyad Mansour.
Due to U.S. being one of five permanent members of the UNSC, the passage of a resolution on the matter is unlikely.
U.S. Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley defended the recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, stating that America remains a credible peace partner in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. She blamed the world body for being the real obstacle to peace. Cont'd https://www.breakingisraelnews.com/99143/can-un-security-council-reverse-trumps-jerusalem-recognition/

PREPARING OIL FOR THE TEMPLE MENORAH
Friday Church News Notes, November 24, 2017 - The Mount Zion Group is preparing special olive oil in preparation for the Third Temple. " The oil-making is part of an ongoing effort by the Mount Zion Association to recreate Temple rituals and become familiar with them in every detail, so they can be reinstated without delay, should the need arise in the near future" ("Sanhedrin/Mount Zion Group Prepares Oil," Breaking Israel News, Nov. 16, 2017). The oil is made from trees in Amona in the territory of the tribe of Benjamin. The oil is made by beating, as per the instructions in Exodus 27:20, as opposed to the normal method of crushing and pressing. Olive oil comes from the olive seed, not from the meat or pulp. Beating the olives produces oil in less quantity but of a superior quality. About 450 pounds of olives produces 25 quarts of oil. The preparation for the Third Temple is in high gear. The Temple Institute and others will tell you that they do not know how it will be built, but they are sure that it will be built and they sense that the time is drawing near. Not believing Bible prophecy, they do not know that the Third Temple will be occupied by the Antichrist. See Daniel 9:27; Matthew 24:15; 2 Thessalonians 2:3-9. Revelation chapter 11 describes the measuring of the temple during the ministry of the Two Witnesses who will prophesy during the first 3.5 years of the Antichrist’s reign during which a peace covenant will be in effect.

TRUMP'S DECLARATION SPARKS TALK OF 3RD TEMPLE
WND - Staff - December 2017 - WASHINGTON – While Muslims jeer, Israelis cheer President Trump's Jerusalem declaration, prompting Jewish religious activists to suggest building the Third Temple is closer to reality than ever before.
"What he did … was an enormous step in bringing the Temple," said Asaf Fried, official spokesman for the United Temple Movement, an association of organizations working towards making the Third Temple a reality. He added, "This necessarily had to come from a non-Jew in order to bring them into the process, so they will be able to take their part in the Temple."
Fried sees Trump's role similar to the one played by Cyrus, the Persian king who ended the Babylonian exile and helped build the Second Jewish Temple. "There have been amazing advances towards bringing the Temple this year. It was clear that Trump was part of that process, guided by Hashem (God)," Fried declared. Thank President Trump for declaring Jerusalem to be the capital of Israel and all his accomplishments during his first year in office. Send him a FREE card of your choice. Go to ThankTrump.us He is hardly alone in his jubilation about the possibilities of rebuilding a Temple last destroyed in A.D. 70 – 1,948 years ago. "The prophets' words of prophecy are coming forth from the Bible and becoming facts right before our eyes," said Likud lawmaker and prominent Temple Mount movement figure Yehuda Glick.

ABBAS AIDE: PA NOT SEVERING TIES WITH US OVER JERUSALEM RECOGNITION
Nabil Shaath says contacts with administration on the peace process are 'interrupted,' but communication still open on other matters
By Dov Lieber - December 10, 2017 - US President Donald Trump, left, and Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas shake hands during a joint press conference at the presidential palace in the West Bank city of Bethlehem on May 23, 2017. (AFP/Mandel Ngan)
A senior adviser to Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas appeared to back away Sunday from the Palestinian threat to sever ties with the US over the recognition of Jerusalem, saying that they were only “interrupted.”
“We are not cutting our relationship with America. We are protesting the move of Mr. Trump,” Abbas’s foreign affairs adviser Nabil Shaath told The Times of Israel in a phone interview. “We think Mr. Trump has acted in a way that makes it impossible for the United States to act as an honest broker. We are just expressing that,” Shaath said.
Nabil Shaath, the Commissioner for External Relations of the Fatah movement, seen in his office in the West Bank city of Ramallah... He clarified, however, that all other communications between the PA and the US were not affected, even though the PA has stated that its president, Mahmoud Abbas, will not meet US Vice President Mike Pence when he visits later this month. https://www.timesofisrael.com/abbas-aide-pa-not-severing-ties-with-us-over-jerusalem-recognition

LIKUD FUMES OVER 'GUILLOTINE' AT TEL AVIV ANTI-CORRUPTION RALLY
By Raoul Wootliff and TOI staff - Labor chief also slams prop as 'incitement' against Netanyahu, dismisses Israel boycott signs spotted at protest. President raps guillotine sign at anti-corruption rally as ‘incitement’ . 'I am a pacifist and reject all forms of violence,' insists protester behind cardboard cutout as criticism mounts
By ALEXANDER FULBRIGHT and RAOUL WOOTLIFF
December 24, 2017 - A man with a cardboard guillotine attends an anti-Netanyahu rally in Tel Aviv on December 23, 2017 (screen capture: 0404.co.il). President Reuven Rivlin on Sunday criticized a protester who brandished a cardboard guillotine at an anti-corruption rally in Tel Aviv on Saturday night, calling the use of the prop “clear incitement.”
“An act like the one we witnessed last night, of a guillotine at a demonstration in Tel Aviv, was a sin against peaceful protesters and the democratic right to protest,” Rivlin said in a statement. “This is clear incitement, which crosses the boundaries of freedom of expression and protest, and I condemn the clear statements implied by such an exhibit,” he added.
Rivlin’s condemnation came after the cardboard guillotine was denounced by politicians on both sides of the political aisle, with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s Likud party saying it constituted incitement to violence against the Israeli premier.
Public Security Minister Gilad Erdan was quoted by the Kan public broadcaster as saying an investigation for incitement to violence should be opened over the sign. Amid the growing furor, the protester behind the cutout denied it was a call for violence. https://www.timesofisrael.com/president-slams-guillotine-sign-at-anti-corruption-rally-as-incitement/

The vote, which passed 207-0 in the 290-member Majlis, requires Tehran to recognize Jerusalem as “the everlasting capital of Palestine.” The vote “comes in response to the recent US decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital in hopes of dealing a blow to Muslims,” the Turkish Anadolu news agency quotes speaker Ali Larijani saying.

PLANNED WESTERN WALL TRAIN STATION TO BE NAMED FOR TRUMP
Yisrael Katz approves extension of Tel Aviv-Jerusalem high speed line to Old City, reserving special honor for US president
By TOI staff and AP - Today, 12:28 pm -
A controversial plan to place a train station in the heart of Jerusalem’s Old City and whisk tourists from Ben-Gurion Airport to the Western Wall may have a controversial name attached to it: Donald Trump.
Transportation Minister Yisrael Katz said a planned train station would be named after US President Donald Trump, who earlier this month recognized Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and vowed to move the US embassy to the city. Katz’s plan, currently in the initial planning stage, involves extending the upcoming high-speed Jerusalem-Tel Aviv train line to the Old City. The plan would involve constructing two underground stations and excavating over two miles (three kilometers) of tunnel beneath downtown Jerusalem and under the politically and historically sensitive Old City. The Western Wall is the holiest site where Jews can pray. Transportation Ministry spokesman Avner Ovadia said Wednesday the project is estimated to cost more than $700 million and, if approved, would take four years to complete. https://www.timesofisrael.com/planned-western-wall-train-station-to-be-named-
