ALL ABOARD THE TRUMP PROPHECIES THIRD TEMPLE EXPRESS: MASSIVE GOVERNMENT INFRASTRUCTURE UNDERWAY TO BRING MILLIONS TO ISRAEL FOR THE COMING OF MESSIAH
By Joshua -Wander - June 27, 2017 - July 2, 2017 by SkyWatch Editor
THE WORLD IS NOT READY FOR WHAT THE FIREMAN SAYS IS COMING NEXT! WILL YOU BE!?
For the first time in approximately 2,000 years, since the time of the Second Temple, plans are being formed by the Israeli government to build an effective infrastructure for Jews to make their obligatory pilgrimage to the Temple in Jerusalem. God commands in the Bible that all Jews make their way to the Temple three times a year. “Three times in a year shall all thy males appear before Hashem thy God in the place which He shall choose; on the feast of unleavened bread, and on the Shavuot, and on the Sukkot; and they shall not appear before Hashem empty” (Deuteronomy 16:16). The Third Temple will require a functional infrastructure that could facilitate the transportation of millions of Jews to Jerusalem during and after these festivals. Israel’s Minister of Transportation, Yisroel Katz, has publicly stated that facilitating this was his intention when planning the line of the fast train currently under construction between the airport in Tel Aviv and Jerusalem. In a meeting with Temple Movement representatives in February, the minister explained, “As a Kohen (Jew of the priestly caste) I have a special connection to the holy site. In front of my eyes I constantly see the words ‘Prepare the way, prepare the way…’” https://www.breakingisraelnews.com/90393/infrastructure-bring-millions-pilgrims-temple-mount-quietly-constructed/

U.N. DENIES ABRAHAM AS JEWISH PATRIARCH: NETANYAHU RESPONDS
PM Netanyahu Statement on UNESCO Hebron Resolution
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DjxgB33pVH4
By Geri Ungurean - July 10, 2017 - Satan’s influence upon this world gets stronger by the day. His hatred for Israel and the Jewish people is at the heart of his demonic influence over the United Nations and also over Globalists worldwide.
One would not think that a country roughly the size of New Jersey would be in the news daily; with Jerusalem being at the heart of the MSM coverage of Israel and the so-called Palestinians.
As Christians, we must understand that every event happening in the middle east and throughout the world must be God’s will. He is in full control of human history. These events are all leading up to the end of days, and Bible prophecy will be fulfilled to the letter. Watch PM Netanyahu as he condemns the U.N.’s denial of Abraham as the Jewish Patriarch. He speaks in Hebrew with English caption:

ISRAEL ENRAGED BY 'DELUSIONAL' UNESCO DECLARING TOMB OF PATRIARCHS PALESTINIAN
By Ben Cohen - Algemeiner.com - July 10, 2017
Israeli officials and Jewish leaders in the Diaspora reacted with fury following Friday's vote at UNESCO -- the UN's global cultural agency -- to declare the Tomb of the Patriarchs, a key Jewish holy site in the West Bank city of Hebron, an "endangered Palestinian world heritage site."
The resolution -- which claimed the tomb was "faced with serious threats which could have deleterious effects on its inherent characteristics" while under Israeli control -- passed UNESCO's World Heritage Committee by 12 votes to 3 during a session of the committee's annual meeting in the Polish city of Krakow. Six countries abstained. The nations voting in favor included "the Arab bloc, Cuba, Zimbabwe and other dictatorships," a report from Geneva-based monitoring organization UN Watch said.
The storm of condemnation in the wake of the vote was led by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who denounced it as "another delusional UNESCO decision," and reaffirmed that Israel would "continue to guard the Cave of the Patriarchs, to ensure religious freedom for everybody and guard the truth." The first Biblical patriarch, Abraham, and several male and female members of his immediate family are buried at the site.

TRUMP BROKERS $7.6 BILLION ISRAELI MISSILE DEAL TO POLAND
By David Israel - July 9, 2017 David's Sling's Stunner interceptor - The $7.6 billion deal that Polish Defense Minister Antoni Macierewicz announced last Thursday morning, during President Donald Trump’s visit to Warsaw, revolves around Israeli Rafael Advanced Defense Systems’ technology without which the Poles would have nothing to do with the deal.
The US-based Raytheon is Rafael’s close partner in the development and production of Stunner, the interceptor of the David’s Sling system, which is possibly the world’s most advanced interceptors in its class—it can be fired at ranges from 25 to 300 185 miles.
Stunner works well with both Rafael’s David’s Sling system and Raytheon’s Patriot system, and the Poles want the Stunner inside their Patriot system. Macierewicz announced on live TV Thursday that “a memorandum was signed tonight that the US government has agreed to sell Poland Patriot missiles in their most modern configuration.” A memorandum signed between the US and Poland includes and American commitment to include in the deal technology related to SkyCeptor missiles and the 360-degree radar. The 360-degree radar peripheral defense is also a Rafael development. Macierewicz said on Thursdays that he had told Defense Secretary Jim Mattis that the SkyCeptor missile and 360-degree radar technology are critical, and without them there would not deal.

The video shows some of the tools by which the Talmudists/Pharisees/Illuminati and their stooge Masonry (Judaism for Goyim= Cattle = Non-Jews) brainwash the Goyim to blindly be driven into the direction of what the Talmudists/Pharisees always saw them to be: Worthless animals with only one justification: To serve the Jewish 2master race”.

ISRAEL EXPECTS CHANGE IN UN VOTING PATTERNS, NETANYAHU SAYS AFTER AFRICA TRIP
By Herb Keinon - June 5, 2017 - Netanyahu met with ten African leader one after the next until his plane left Liberia at 8 PM Sunday, meeting each for about 30 minutes.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who returned Monday from Liberia, said he made clear in each of his 10 separate meetings with African leaders on Sunday that he expects improved bilateral relations to be reflected in changing voting patterns toward Israel in international forums.
Netanyahu told reporters on his plane, however, that this is not a “condition” to Israel’s increased involvement in Africa. Can Israel help solve Africa’s problems? Yemen joins Riyadh, Cairo, UAE and Bahrain in severing ties with Qatar. Netanyahu, who spent less than 12 hours in Liberia, said his appearance at the 15-member Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) summit and his meetings on the sidelines with leaders of 10 of those states opened numerous doors for Israel in Africa. http://www.jpost.com/Israel-News/Politics-And-Diplomacy/Following-Africa-visit-Netanyahu-expects-

IRAN: ISIS LEADER CONFIRMED DEAD
By Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz - July 2, 2017 - Multiple sources have surfaced seeming to confirm that Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the leader of the Islamic State (ISIS), was indeed killed in a Russian airstrike in Syria last month. Russia said on June 17 its forces might have killed Baghdadi in an airstrike in Syria. Iran’s state news agency (IRNA) confirmed this last week when they quoted cleric Ali Shirazi, a representative of Iranian Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, as saying simply that al-Baghdadi was, “definitely dead”. An updated version of the article in IRNA removed the quote by Shirazi, casting grave doubts on the report.
Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei (Photo: Twitter) Washington said on Thursday it had no information to corroborate such reports. “We don’t have any concrete evidence on whether or not he’s dead either,” U.S. Army Colonel Ryan Dillon, spokesman for the international coalition battling Islamic State, told a Pentagon briefing. Iraqi officials have also expressed doubt as the the veracity of the Russian report. Iraqi News reported that Abu Qutaiba, an aide to al-Baghdadi, broke down in tears during a Friday sermon in the town of Tal Afar and “mumbled a few words suggesting his death”. https://www.breakingisraelnews.com/90692/iran-isis-leader-confirmed-dead/

80,000 GATHER FOR BLESSING
Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat has recently announced plans to build a cable car system that will be capable of transporting thousands of people per hour to the area of the Western Wall and Temple Mount. The Israeli government ministers just recently approved this plan during a cabinet meeting held inside the Western Wall Tunnels.
The stated purpose of all of these plans is to modernize the capital city, making it easier for both residents and tourists to navigate its increasing traffic. But it is abundantly clear that all of these upgrades will soon be used for the purpose of allowing millions of Jews from around the globe to quickly and easily visit the Temple and to fulfill their Biblical obligation.
“We need to establish express service bus transportation to the Temple Mount from all parts of the country,” Hayman said. “The Temple Mount Express bus lines will have special blue and white bus stops enabling Jews to regularly travel directly to the Temple Mount, pray and return home.”

Since the Modern State of Israel was created in 1948, and even to a greater extent, since the liberation and reunification of Jerusalem in 1967, building has been non-stop in the capital city. Nonetheless, all this progress is only the first step.
Many new hotels will need to be built and upgraded. Roads will need to be widened and extended. Utilities will need to be improved and upgraded. And new methods of transportation will need to be implemented.

UN POLICY REPORT
On Tuesday U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley testified before the House Appropriations Subcommittee on State, Foreign Ops, and Related Programs on the FY2018 budget for the United Nations and International Organizations.
Ambassador Haley responded to questions from the Reps. Nita Lowey (D-NY) and Barbara Lee (D-CA) on the Trump Administration's State Department determination that the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) is ineligible to receive global health funds under the Kemp-Kasten Amendment.
The Kemp-Kasten Amendment is a longstanding amendment that gives the President the authority to discontinue funding to organizations that participate in the management of a coercive abortion and sterilization program.
In response to questioning from Rep. Barbara Lee (D-CA), Ambassador Haley explained that the Administration did not fund UNFPA because of its associations with forced sterilization. She noted that instead the Administration redirected the money previously designated for UNFPA toward global health care that the United States could support.
During questioning by Rep. Nita Lowey (D-NY), Ambassador Haley reiterated that other global health organizations are receiving the same amount of money that UNFPA received, and that the United States continues to support healthcare for women and girls; she noted it's a matter of which avenue is used to provide that healthcare.

BRACING FOR TEMPLE MOUNT VIOLENCE, ISRAEL BOOSTS SECURITY
By The Jerusalem Connection - July 20, 2017 - By Lilach Shoval, Itsik Saban, Associated Press and Israel Hayom Staff -
Following a security assessment Thursday morning, amid escalating tensions at the Temple Mount compound in Jerusalem, the IDF decided to deploy five battalions comprising hundreds of soldiers to the area to brace for potential violence on Friday. The decision will be finalized following another situation assessment Friday morning. The latest friction surrounds the placement of metal detectors at the entrance to the contested Jerusalem shrine following a deadly terrorist attack there last week. Israel maintains that the metal detectors are essential to ensure security, while Muslims oppose the move, claiming it is an Israeli attempt to expand its control over the site. Mass protests were expected to erupt at the site on Friday, the highlight of the Muslim religious week, when tens of thousands of Muslims typically attend prayers in the walled compound in Jerusalem’s Old City. Sporadic violent clashes in and around the compound since the introduction of the metal detectors raised concerns of further escalation.
Earlier Thursday, reports suggested that American and Jordanian mediators were stepping in to resolve the crisis. According to the reports, the Americans are seeking a compromise whereby the metal detectors will be removed and instead, security personnel will conduct individual security checks on flagged suspects.
The White House issued a statement Wednesday expressing concern over the latest developments and calling on Israel and the Jordanian administrators overseeing the site to defuse tensions. “The United States is very concerned about tensions surrounding the Temple Mount/Hamam Al-Sharif, a site holy to Jews, Muslims and Christians,” the statement said. “[We] call upon the State of Israel and the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan to make a good faith effort to reduce tensions and to find a solution that assures public safety and the security of the site and maintains the status quo.”
Palestinian sources reported that Israel had been given a Thursday evening deadline to remove the metal detectors. Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas, currently heading back to the region after cutting his visit to China short, was to convene an emergency consultation upon returning to Ramallah.
Meanwhile, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu signaled that he did not intend to instruct security forces to remove the metal detectors.
Netanyahu spoke by phone from Hungary Wednesday with Israeli security chiefs about the escalation in Jerusalem and was to hold further consultations after his return to Israel on Thursday. “There is no change regarding the metal detectors,” Netanyahu told security officials during the phone consultation.
Several thousand Muslims worshippers prayed Wednesday evening in the streets near Lions’ Gate, one of the entrances to the shrine, now fitted with metal detectors.
Muslim clerics on Wednesday urged the faithful to forego prayers in neighborhood mosques in the city on Friday and converge on the shrine, in an attempt to draw larger crowds. Worshippers were instructed to pray in the streets rather than submit to the new security procedures. Israeli media reported that security chiefs were at odds over the new security measures. Israel’s Shin Bet security service reportedly opposes the metal detectors as counterproductive, while the Israel Police support the new measures. Netanyahu said Israel was in close contact with Jordan, the traditional Muslim custodian of the shrine. Netanyahu said Jordan wants to “end this as quietly as possible.”
“We expect everyone to help restore calm,” he said.
Netanyahu rejected Muslim allegations that Israel is changing long-standing arrangements at the holy site. “We should look at the facts and the truth — the installation of metal detectors does not constitute any change in the status quo,” he said. “It is only meant to prevent a repeat of an attack with weapons.”
Jordanian Foreign Minister Ayman Safadi said the key to restoring calm is to have Israel respect the “historic and legal status” at the shrine, Amman’s state news agency Petra reported. Safadi told ambassadors from Europe and Asia that ending tensions is in Israel’s hands, adding that Israel should immediately reopen the shrine without any hindrances.
After last week’s shooting attack, in which three Israeli Arabs murdered two Israeli police officers, Israel closed the site for two days for searches. It was only the third time the site was closed since Israel reunited Jerusalem in the 1967 Six-Day War. The closure drew wide condemnation from the Muslim world. Israel began opening the site gradually on Sunday. http://thejerusalemconnection.us/blog/2017/07/20/bracing-temple-mount-violence-israel-boosts-security/

RIOTS CONTINUED IN JERUSALEM AMID HEIGHTENED TEMPLE MOUNT TENSIONS
July 19, 2017 - JNS.org -

JNS.org – Clashes erupted between Muslim rioters and Israeli police officers in Jerusalem’s Old City on Wednesday for the fourth consecutive day.
Around 200 protesters convened near the Old City’s Lions’ Gate and performed Islamic prayers to protest the bolstered security implemented at the Temple Mount following last Friday’s terror attack that killed two Israeli police officers near the holy site.
Several of the protesters began shouting chants in support of the Temple Mount complex’s Al-Aqsa Mosque, and were asked by police to leave the area. When one of the protesters refused to comply with the police order, several other protesters began rioting and throwing water bottles at the officers. The police responded by implementing crowd control measures and arresting the man who defied the police order.
Wednesday’s protests came after Muslim rioters clashed with police in the Old City Tuesday night, after Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas’s Fatah party called for a “day of rage” to take place in eastern Jerusalem and the disputed territories. Riots also broke out in Jerusalem’s Old City Sunday when Muslim worshipers blocked a road in protest of new metal detectors placed at the entrance gates to the Temple Mount.

ISRAEL: UNESCO IS A FULL PARTNER IN PALESTINIAN INCITEMENT
By The Jerusalem Connection - July 20, 2017 - Jerusalem, Temple
By Tovah Lazaroff - JPost - Israel has charged that UNESCO’s actions have helped Palestinians use the Temple Mount to incite violence against Israel. “UNESCO is a full partner to the false incitement by Palestinians and radical Islam who claim that Al-Aksa [Temple Mount mosque] is in danger,” Israel’s ambassador to UNESCO in Paris Carmel Shama HaCohen said on Thursday. HaCohen said that Israel hopes to see an end to the incitement that comes from sensational and false stories put out by Arab and Palestinian media about the Temple Mount.
This year, both UNESCO’s Executive Board and its World Heritage Committee passed a resolution that disavowed Israeli sovereignty on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem’s Old City, known to Muslims as Al-Haram/Al-Sharif. This followed two years of resolutions that also ignored Jewish ties to the Temple Mount – as well as the city of Jerusalem as a whole – by referring to Judaism’s holiest site solely by its Muslim name.
He spoke as tensions mounted in Jerusalem’s Old City in the aftermath of last Friday’s terror attack, in which two Israeli policemen were killed by three Israeli Arabs. The assailants were shot and killed by Israeli police as they attempted to flee the site of the attack.
Israel’s decision to place metal detectors at the entrances to the site to ensure that weapons would not be brought in has sparked outrage among Muslim worshipers.
Instead of entering the Temple Mount compound, the worshipers have stood daily next to the metal detectors at the Lion’s Gate and held prayer services in protest.
Shama HaCohen said he is certain that in October, UNESCO’s Executive Board will condemn Israel for placing the metal detectors at the site. The text of that resolution will most likely state that the metal detectors harm the site’s integrity, freedom of worship, and the status quo of the area.
To help remedy the situation his office has called on UNESCO’s Director-General Irina Bokova to condemn any attempts to use the Temple Mount as a location from which to launch terror attacks.
It is important that Bokova state that incitement and terrorism are the true threats here, Shama HaCohen said. The letter his office sent stated: The Old City of Jerusalem, and its Walls, including Har-Habait (Temple Mount), is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and as the Director-General of [that] organization, I urge you to strongly condemn this deadly and shameful attack, [which] occurred within a UNESCO World Heritage Site.” “Furthermore, I urge you to condemn the use of Har-Habait (Temple Mount), as a place for launching terror attacks against Israel , and condemn as well the violations of the holiness of this sacred place by terrorists,” the letter stated. http://thejerusalemconnection.us/blog/2017/07/20/israel-unesco-full-partner-palestinian-incitement/

WHITE HOUSE VERY CONCERNED OVER TEMPLE MOUNT TENSION
By The Jerusalem Connection - July 20, 2017 - Jerusalem, Temple
By Times of Israel - The White House is “very concerned” over tensions surrounding Jerusalem’s Temple Mount complex, it said in a statement late Wednesday, urging Israel and Jordan to restore calm to the area after days of violent clashes. Muslim worshipers have been protesting Israel’s decision to install metal detectors and other security measures at entrances to the holy site in the wake of a deadly terror attack near there on Friday, saying the move breaks the delicate status quo agreement between Jerusalem and Amman.
“The United States is very concerned about tensions surrounding the Temple Mount/Haram Al-Sharif, a site holy to Jews, Muslims, and Christians, and calls upon the State of Israel and the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan to make a good faith effort to reduce tensions and to find a solution that assures public safety and the security of the site and maintains the status quo,” the White House press office said in a brief statement.
It added that Washington would “continue to closely monitor the developments.”
On Wednesday, rioters clashed with Israeli police at sites around Jerusalem as part of a “day of rage” called to protest the metal detectors, the fourth straight day of violence stemming from the move. Metal detectors were set up in front of entrances to the Temple Mount as part of increased security measures Sunday after police said three Arab-Israeli attackers who emerged armed from the compound and shot dead two police officers just outside on Friday had stashed their weapons on the holy site. Waqf officials have boycotted the site in protest and have called on other Muslims to do the same. Several clashes have broken out following protest prayers next to the metal detectors.
Officials are worried that tensions may come to a head on Friday — the Muslim holy day — should the metal detectors remain in place.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, in Hungary on a state visit, said Wednesday he held security consultations with police and defense officials, but decided to leave the detectors.
“We want to solve this crisis in the quietest way possible and to bring back the calm,” Netanyahu said. “We talk with the Arab world and we explain that there is absolutely no change to the status quo” on the holy site. Under the status quo governing the site, Israel controls access to the site and the Waqf Islamic trust set up by Jordan administers activities inside the compound. Non-Muslims are allowed to visit but are prohibited from prayer.
Jordanian Foreign Minister Ayman Safadi said the key to restoring calm is to have Israel respect the “historic and legal status” at the shrine, the state news agency Petra reported. Safadi told ambassadors from Europe and Asia that ending tensions is in the hands of Israel which he said should immediately reopen the shrine without any hindrances. Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, who was in China, is returning to the West Bank to deal with the crisis, his office said in a statement.
In the meantime, Abbas is in touch with Arab and international leaders to try to “prevent a deterioration of the situation,” it said. Israel is in talks with Jordan over the situation, according to the Waqf. “We are in communication with the Jordanian government which is in contact with the government of Israel,” the director of the Waqf, Sheikh Azzam al Khati, said. “As is known, security has always been in the hands of Israelis. But for us, we will not accept any changes, even for security,” he said. On Saturday night, Jordan’s King Abdullah spoke to Netanyahu and condemned the attack. According to the official Petra News Agency, the Jordanian king slammed those who “undermine security and stability” and pave the way for further violence, in an apparent reference to the Arab Israeli gunmen. In the wake of the attack, the White House backed Israel’s decision to close the Temple Mount, the first time it had been shuttered on a Friday in decades. “We urge all leaders and people of good faith to be understanding as this process proceeds and reaches its conclusion,” the White House said then.

CAMPAIGNERS IMPLORE US STATE DEPARTMENT TO STAND FIRM AGAINST LYBIAN ATTEMPT TO CONFISCATE PROPERTY OF JEWISH HERITAGE
By Ben Cohen - July 19, 2017 - Campaigners representing Jewish communities expelled from Arab countries reacted furiously on Tuesday to an effort by the current Libyan government to win legal recognition for its claims to property of Jewish heritage. In addition, under the terms of a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) which the Libyans have submitted to the US State Department, the historic properties of the Jewish community in Libya — including archives, holy books and objects used in synagogue worship - would be barred from entry into the United States.
“I ask the Libyan government: ‘Where are the bones of my ancestors?

A MUSLIM AND A JEW WALK INTO A TV NEWS SHOW - AND COMMIT HERESY

Truth is the last taboo – and the New Inquisitors are coming after us
By Kevin Barrett, Veterans Today Editor - I identify as an Irish-American Muslim. Jeremy Rothe-Kushel identifies as a Mexican-American Jew. Together, we identify as this week’s False Flag Weekly News. Watch it above, and click HERE for links to the stories we covered. (Professor Anthony Hall was on leave at an undisclosed location.)
Jeremy and I are heretics. Not against Christianity – there are no more Christian inquisitors drooling to torture, murder and expel Jews and Muslims from Christendom. We are heretics against the new Orthodoxy that dominates mainstream media, academia, politics, and the corporatocracy. Jonathan Revusky calls this new orthodoxy AARF (Anti-Religious Religious Fanaticism). He quotes one of its high priests, Jeremy Scahill: “I believe that the United States was attacked on 9/11 by Al Qaeda by men flying airplanes into buildings…” (DEEP STRUCTURE TRANSLATION: “I am not a heretic.” I believe in the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost…)
The official story of 9/11, the official story of the Holocaust, the official story that the USA is a democracy…these are some of the new sacred narratives that you are not allowed to doubt or question in any way, shape or form, lest you be labeled an unperson – a modern-day heretic – and expelled from polite society.
To be deemed acceptable by the mainstream, you have to profess belief in the most ludicrous lies. You have to swear by all that is holy that minor office fires can cause three gigantic skyscrapers to explode into dust at near free-fall acceleration, through the path of most resistance, all on the same day – meaning that the laws of physics were suspended on that day, and that day only. You have to insist that black box electronic voting machines, whose only conceivable purpose is to miscount votes in order to rig election results, actually count the votes accurately even though there is no incentive for them to do so, massive incentives for them to be hackable, and no way to verify their alleged accuracy. You have to loudly proclaim undying fealty to the endless, ever-more-absurd tales of Bashir al-Assad’s imaginary chemical weapons attacks, and ignore the hard proof that these events are among the most shameless, obvious, out-in-the-open false flags ever perpetrated. http://www.veteranstoday.com/2017/07/01/heresy/

ISRAELI DEFENSE MINISTER AVIGDOR LIEBERMAN: WE WANT ASSAD OUT OF SYRIA NO MATTER WHAT THE COST
By Jonas E. Alexis - July 2, 2017 - "The country [Syria] was at peace, prosperity was on the rise, and human rights were respected. A common home and fatherland to many ethnicities and 23 different religious groups, Syria has always been a place where all were free to believe and live out their creed, all relationships were characterized by mutual respect. The freedom that is purportedly being brought to us by the rebels is precisely what this rebellion has taken away from us." …by Jonas E. Alexis
Israeli Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman thinks that he is fooling the entire world when he has recently said that “We have no intention of entering any conflict, but I advise our neighbors not to test us.” [1]
Israel has no intention of getting involved in the Syria conflict? Doesn’t this man know that even Efraim Halevy, former director of the Israeli Mossad, admitted unequivocally that Israel has supported factions of Al-Qaeda and al-Nusra in Syria? Does this man really think that he can con the entire world with crazy statements like this? That’s not all. Lieberman has more interesting things to say. He declares that Israel wants to flesh out a peace process in Syria, but get this: that peace process must not involve interesting guests like Iran, Hezbollah and Assad. Lieberman declared: “Keeping Assad in power is not in our security interests.”[2]
The logic is pretty clear here: for Lieberman, peace process means that Assad has to go and has to be replaced with ISIS or al-Qaeda or al-Nusra. As Israeli ambassador Michael Oren himself has said, Israel prefers the bad guys in Syria over Assad.[3] According to Lieberman, if Assad isn’t dead like Gaddafi or Saddam, then there will be no peace in Syria. Here again we are confronted with one of the most fundamental issues of our age: the Israeli regime wants to kill, steal, and destroy. They want to create an unnecessary war, which potentially can morph into a nuclear war with Russia. As Gordon Duff has recently argued, Israel wants to push both Russia and the United States into a nuclear war. http://www.veteranstoday.com/2017/07/02/israeli-defense-minister-avigdor-lieberman-we-want-assad-

REVISING HISTORY: 'JOSEPH' MUSICAL REMOVES 'ISRAEL' FROM ITS LYRICS
By: Jeremy Frankel - June 21, 2017 - Most of us are familiar with the Biblical story of Joseph and his multicolored coat, which his father, Jacob, made for him as a sign of his favor. Joseph’s brothers became jealous, threw him into a pit, and then sold him as a slave, and Joseph ended up in Egypt, eventually becoming second-in-command to Pharaoh himself. When the brothers eventually traveled to Egypt to look for food, Joseph as the viceroy, who was unbeknownst to them, revealed himself to them. This major Biblical event was the precursor to the Israelites becoming slaves in Egypt until God, with the help of Moses, took them out, an event which Jews commemorate on Passover. The story of Joseph is a major catalyst, if not the main precursor, to most of the Torah (Five books of Moses). The entire story of the Exodus is based on it. And no one would deny that it was the children of Israel who went to Egypt and later left based on this event.
Except history-revising Leftists.
A children’s production of the musical Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, originally written by Andrew Lloyd Webber, scheduled to play in September at the Artsplash Festival in New Zealand, was criticized by the original musical’s lyricist Tim Rice for replacing the phrase “Children of Israel” with “Children of Kindness” without his permission. The change in lyrics was noticed when song sheets were handed out to the participants. One astute woman saw the change and questioned on Twitter why they changed the lyrics and if they had permission to do this. http://www.dailywire.com/news/17794/revising-history-joseph-musical-removes-israel-its-jeremy-frankel

BILL IN CONGRESS WOULD PRESSURE PALESTINIANS GOVERNMENT TO CUT OFF TERROR-TIED PAYMENTS
By Eric Shawn - April 30, 2017 - Taylor Force was a West Point graduate who served in Afghanistan and Iraq. He was pursuing his MBA at Vanderbilt last year, and his future was certainly very bright. "Taylor was stabbed to death while he was in Israel by a Palestinian," says his mother, Robbi, matter-of-factly. Taylor, who was 28, was walking along the Mediterranean boardwalk promenade with friends in Tel Aviv, when he was savagely knifed to death on March 8, 2016. His killer was identified as a Palestinian terrorist, 22-year-old Bashar Masalha, who authorities say went on a stabbing spree that also severely wounded ten others before he was shot dead by Israeli police. "All dads and all moms are proud of their kids. Taylor basically did everything right, but he was humble about it," says his father, Stuart. Taylor's parents say their grief was compounded by the fact that the family of their son's murderer is making money off his death. The Palestinian Authority spends hundreds of millions of dollars a year paying jihadists and their survivors who were involved in acts of terrorism, and critics say some of those funds come from U.S. taxpayer money that Washington sends to the P.A.

IT'S TIME TO PASS THE TAYLOR FORCE ACT
By: Jeremy Frankel - May 22, 2017 - On March 8, 2016, U.S. Army Veteran Taylor Force, a Texas native, was stabbed to death by an Arab terrorist while on a visit to Israel. The reaction to the murder of someone who risked his life for his own country by joining the U.S. military and served in both Iraq and Afghanistan should have been met with much more anger than it was.
Yet the U.S. still funds the Palestinian Authority (PA), while the PA refuses to denounce terrorism, funds terrorism and names schools and town squares after terrorists, whom they refer to as “martyrs” and “heroes.”
This begs the question: Why do we still fund this evil organization, which is nothing more than an offshoot of the Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO), which identified as a terrorist group led by Yasser Arafat? To solve this problem, both the House and Senate, led by Reps. Doug Lamborn and Lee Zeldin and Sen. Lindsey Graham, introduced legislation, appropriately called the Taylor Force Act, to stop taxpayer money from funding the PA until it stops funding terrorism and stops paying surviving family members of suicide bombers. These three men were joined by Senators Ted Cruz, Roy Blunt, Tom Cotton, and the act was cosponsored by Sens. Tim Scott, Marco Rubio, John Boozman, Richard Burr and John Thune. http://www.dailywire.com/news/16734/its-time-pass-taylor-force-act-jeremy-frankel

HOUSE COMMITTEE APPROVES STRICT RESTRICTIONS ON US FUNDING FOR UN AND PALESTINIAN AUTHORITY
By Ben Cohen - July 20, 2017 - The House Appropriations Committee is placing tough funding restrictions on the UN and the PA. Tough conditions on American funding for both the UN and the Palestinian Authority (PA) have been approved by the congressional committee overseeing the US Foreign Operations Bill for 2018. The bill — passed by the House Appropriations Committee on Wednesday — places strict restrictions on how the $47.4 billion budget for overseas operations will be disbursed. A statement from the committee confirmed that there will be “no funding for the (UN) Human Rights Council unless the Secretary of State determines that it is in the national security interest and the Council stops its anti-Israel agenda and increases transparency in the elections of its members.” https://www.algemeiner.com/2017/07/20/

RAMADAN EARNS PRIME SPOT ON GULF FASHION CALENDAR
By Afp - June 22, 2017 - From Dolce & Gabbana to Michael Kors, major brands are catering to lucrative Gulf markets during the Muslim holy month of Ramadan, which is earning its own slot on the global fashion calendar.
From Dolce & Gabbana to Michael Kors, major brands are catering to lucrative Gulf markets during the Muslim holy month of Ramadan, which is earning its own slot on the global fashion calendar. With Muslim spending on clothing on the rise, mainstream labels are courting the dirham, dinar and riyal in a region home to some of the world's biggest buyers of fashion.
High-end and fast-fashion brands in the United States, Europe and Asia have made an aggressive push to break into the Gulf, where demand for "modest wear" is skyrocketing, fuelled in part by the rise of social media influencers and Muslim lifestyle and beauty vloggers.
Holidays have long been high seasons for retailers around the world and Ramadan, a month of fasting from dawn to sunset aimed at reflection and modesty, is no longer the exception. The market for the abaya, a long, loose robe worn over clothes, in particular peaks during the holy month, according to Dubai-based designer Aiisha Ramadan, as women strive to avoid outfit repeats at all costs.
