Saddam Hussein was no Nebuchadnezzar!

Jewish Calendar in Action
13:46 Dec 31, '06 / 10 Tevet 5767
by Hillel Fendel

Today, the 10th of Tevet, is a day of fasting, commemorating the siege of Jerusalem led by Nebuchadnezzar - the ancient Babylonian despot of whom Saddam Hussein claimed to be a reincarnation.

Just a day after the hanging of Saddam Hussein, Jews around the world remember another cruel tyrant - Saddam's self-proclaimed role model - and his murderous plans for the Jewish People. Nebuchadnezzar was more successful than Saddam in this regard, in that he destroyed Jerusalem and the Holy Temple, and put hundreds of thousands of Jews, including the nation's king and leaders, to death with unspeakable cruelty.

On this day, the 10th of Tevet, Nebuchadnezzar instated a tight siege on Jerusalem, setting off the chain of events that led to the destruction of the First Holy Temple and a 70-year exile of the Jewish People from their Holy Land.

Today, nearly 2,500 years later, Jews around the world - and especially in the modern renewed edition of the Jewish State that Nebuchadnezzar tried to rub out - refrain from eating and drinking until sunset to remember the calamities that occurred at that time.

Saddam Hussein, who was hanged yesterday in Baghdad, just 90 kilometers from Nebuchadnezzar's palace in the ancient city of Babyon, modeled himself in many ways after Nebuchadnezzar.

Much of the brickwork in the throne room of King Nebuchadnezzar's palace, for instance, was built by Saddam Hussein's workers. Just as the original bricks are inscribed with words praising Nebuchadnezzar, the newer ones - 60 million of them! - state that they were fashioned in "the era of Saddam Hussein, protector of Iraq, who rebuilt civilization and rebuilt Babylon."

In addition, in his book "Saddam Hussein, the Stairway to Heaven and the Return of Planet X," William Henry writes, "Saddam is saying he is the reincarnated Nebuchadnezzar... He is attempting to recreate and outdo the feats of the biblical king... It is well known that [he] has connected himself with Nebuchadnezzar, spending over $500 million during the 1980s on the reconstruction and the re-establishment of ancient Babylon, the capitol of Nebuchadnezzar."

Nebuchadnezzar was Divinely changed into an animal for a period of time - an event that many recalled when the once-opulent Saddam Hussein was captured two and a half years ago living in nearly animal-like conditions.

The Tenth of Tevet has also taken on another facet, in connection with the Holocaust. Many bereaved Jews who do not know the date or place of death of their loved ones recite Kaddish, the Jewish prayer for those who have died, on this day. For this reason, some consider this day as a Holocaust remembrance day.

Yishai Fleisher contributed to this article.

I was born on Tevet 10, which was January 10 in 1960, which I find interesting with my God-given love of Jews, Jerusalem and Israel. For the record, the Bible doesn't say Nebuchadnezzar became an animal, but appeared like Saddam Hussein when captured, animal-like.

May all our proud and stubborn world leaders learn what Nebuchadnezzar appeared to catch at least a temporary glimpse of and let it sink in, take it to heart, and keep it uppermost in their minds so they don't need to be horribly humbled or become so much history.

Daniel 4:30-34

30 The king spoke, saying, “Is not this great Babylon, that I have built for a royal dwelling by my mighty power and for the honor of my majesty?”

31 While the word was still in the king’s mouth, a voice fell from heaven: "King Nebuchadnezzar, to you it is spoken: the kingdom has departed from you! 32 And they shall drive you from men, and your dwelling shall be with the beasts of the field. They shall make you eat grass like oxen; and seven times shall pass over you, until you know that the Most High rules in the kingdom of men, and gives it to whomever He chooses."

33 That very hour the word was fulfilled concerning Nebuchadnezzar; he was driven from men and ate grass like oxen; his body was wet with the dew of heaven till his hair had grown like eagles’ feathers and his nails like birds’ claws.

34 And at the end of the time I, Nebuchadnezzar, lifted my eyes to heaven, and my understanding returned to me; and I blessed the Most High and praised and honored Him who lives forever:

For His dominion is an everlasting dominion,
And His kingdom is from generation to generation.

Will Bill Clinton and Janet Reno hang?

Some critics claim President Bush should have hanged next to Saddam Hussein. God knows, but Bush didn't have any trial.

What ought to be in the news is how BILL CLINTON and JANET RENO should be arrested, brought to trial and, if found guilty (and we know they are), hanged in the public square for their mass murder of the Branch Davidian "village" that didn't pose a threat to them or anybody else and should have been permitted to live in peace in these United States of America. It appears so far BILL CLINTON and JANET RENO have gotten away with murder, just like Shimon Peres in Israel. Every country appears polluted by such filth.

"Who Murdered Yitzhak Rabin?" Chapter Nine: The Kempler Film


Chapter Nine: "The Kempler Film"

copyright (c) 1998, 2006, by Mr. Barry Chamish

R&B Editor's Notes:

"Who Murdered Yitzhak Rabin?":
The Root & Branch Information Services is serializing the book Who Murdered Yitzhak Rabin?, by Mr. Barry Chamish, with permission of the author, to commemorate the eleventh anniversary of the assassination of Yitzhak Rabin (November 4, 1995 -- November 4, 2006).

The Bible Says:

"How is the faithful city [Jerusalem] become a harlot. She that was full of justice, righteousness lodged in her, but now murderers. Your silver is become dross, your wine is mixed with water. Your princes are rebellious and companions of thieves; every one loves bribes, and follows after rewards; they judge not the fatherless, neither does the cause of the widow come to them.

Therefore, says the Lord, the Lord of hosts, the Mighty One of Israel: Ah, I will ease Me of My adversaries, and avenge Me of My enemies; and I will turn My hand upon you, and purge away your dross as with lye, and will take away all your allow; and I will restore your judges as at the first, and your counsellors as at the beginning; afterward you [Jerusalem] shall be called the city of righteousness, the faithful city. Zion shall be redeemed with justice, and they who return of her with righteousness.

But the destruction of the transgressors and the sinners shall be together, and they who forsake the Lord shall be consumed. For they shall be ashamed of the terebinths which you have desired, and you shall be confounded for the garden that you have chosen. For you shall be as a terebinth whose leaf fades, and as a garden that has no water. And the strong shall be as tow, and his work as a spark, and they shall both burn together, and none shall quench them".

Chapter Nine: "The Kempler Film"

Almost two months after the Rabin assassination, Israelis were shocked to read in their newspapers that an amateur film of the event would be shown on Channel Two news. The film maker was announced as a Polish tourist with a long, unpronounceable name. However, this story changed the day of the broadcast. The film maker was, in fact, an Israeli named Roni Kempler.

There were obvious questions asked by the public. Why had he [Kempler] waited a month to show the film when he would have been a few million dollars richer had he sold it to the world networks the day following the assassination? In his sole television appearance the night his film was broadcast, Kempler explained he was not interested in making money. What else could he say?

It was quickly discovered that Kempler was no ordinary person. He worked for the State Comptroller's Office and was a bodyguard in the army reserves.

It is an extremely rare occurrence when the Israeli press publishes an opinion that expresses doubt about the veracity of the Shamgar Commission, which investigated the assassination on behalf of the government. Yet in the aftermath of a most revealing expose of the testimony of Shabak (G.S.S./General Security Services) agents and police officers present near the murder site published by Ma'ariv on September 27, 1996, two letters were published in response.

One was from Labor Knesset Member Ofir Pines, who admitted he, too, heard numerous security agents shout that the shots which supposedly felled Rabin were blanks. He added rather weakly that in retrospect, perhaps he heard the shouts because he wanted to believe that the bullets were not real.

A second letter was from Hannah Chen of Jerusalem. She succinctly summarized some of the most blatant suspicions about Roni Kempler. The letter read:

"Allow me to add my doubts about the strange facts surrounding the Rabin assassination. First, it was said that the video film maker who captured the murder did not own his own camera, rather borrowed one. It is odd that an amateur film maker did not own a camera and, if he borrowed one, then from whom? Why were we not told what kind of a camera was used? Secondly, no one initially knew that he made the film, that a film of the assassination existed. Does that mean none of the security agents on the scene spotted him filming from a rooftop? And how did the video get to the media? Should not the Shabak have confiscated the film from its owner if this was the only documentary evidence describing the crime? And why did not the film maker voluntarily turn over the film to the police? It is completely uncertain if the film is authentic. In my opinion, it was tampered with. Perhaps people were removed or bullet wounds added. It appears to me that we were all fooled. The film maker worked for the Shabak and everything to do with the film and the timing of its release were fake".

Ms. Chen expressed the view of many. Nonetheless, the film, as edited as it obviously was during its two months of non-acknowledgement, is as valuable to solving the Rabin assassination as the Zapruder film in putting to rest the lone-gunman lie foisted on the American public in the wake of the J.F.K. murder.

One event in particular that was captured on the film is becoming the center of doubt about the veracity of the Shamgar Commission. Before Rabin enters his vehicle, the opposite door closes from inside. To almost everyone who watches that door close, it is certain that someone, perhaps the murderer, was waiting in the Cadillac for Rabin. This is in direct contradiction to the official conclusion that Rabin entered an empty car. But there is more on the Kempler film that contradicts the official findings -- much more.

As the fifteen-minute film begins, Yigal Amir looks in the distance; and, as the television commentator noted, "Seems to be signaling someone". It is not the first time that the possibility of an accomplice was noted. At the Shamgar Commission, police officers Boaz Eran and Mori Sergei both testified that Amir spoke with a bearded man in a dark tee-shirt, whom he appeared to know, about 30 minutes before the shooting.

As the film progresses, the viewer realizes that Shabak (G.S.S./General Security Services) testimony before Shamgar was very incorrect. One of the primary excuses given for not identifying Amir in the sterile area was because of the "crowded" situation. To prove the point, the testimony of police officers saying that "another well-known demonstrator, who works for the city, rushed at Rabin and shook his hand", is cited. Amir, then, was not the only anti-Rabin individual in the sterile zone. However, Amir is not filmed in a crowd. He stands for long minutes meters away from anyone else. No one could have missed him had they wanted to see him.

Then, two security officers strike up a conversation with Amir. He was noticed and apparently had something to say to the very people who should have identified and apprehended him.

A few seconds later, Shimon Peres comes down the steps and walks towards the crowd at the barrier. He accepts their good wishes and walks to a spot about a meter and a half opposite the hood or Rabin's car. He is accompanied by four bodyguards, one of whom clearly points to Yigal Amir sitting three meters away opposite them. Peres stops, looks inside the car and begins a conversation with the bodyguards. All now take a good look at the Rabin limousine rear door.

At this point there is a cut. Suddenly, Peres is talking to Rabin's driver, Menachem Damti. Damti was nowhere in the screen previously and was likely by his post beside the driver's seat door. The cut is significant, probably of several seconds. There was something the folks who chopped the film did not want the public to see.

After a hard night at the rally, instead of getting into his car and going home, Peres decided it was more important to examine Rabin's car and have a serious chat with his driver.

Roni Kempler was asked to explain the cut in the film under oath at Yigal Amir's trial. He [Kempler] testified that "Shimon Peres left and I filmed him as he was supposed to enter his car. But when Shimon Peres stood on the same spot for a long time, he stopped interesting me cinematically. I stopped filming and started again the moment he entered his car".

Kempler's account was wrong in every detail. If the film was not cut and he shut off the camera, he decided to turn it back on while Peres was still standing opposite Rabin's car, only now talking to Damti. Many seconds later, he started walking towards his own car. Kempler's testimony was perjured, yet Amir's lawyers, possibly not familiar enough with the film, let him off the hook.

Peres enters his car as Rabin descends the steps. The camera captures the agent at Rabin's rear clearly stopping. He abandons Rabin's back deliberately; a huge gap between him and Rabin opens, allowing Amir a clear shot at the Prime Minister. Amir draws his gun from deep inside his right pocket and the television commentator notes, "Amir is drawing his gun to shoot". Anyone, trained or not, could see that Amir was drawing a gun, and at that point he should have been pounced on. But this was not to be. Instead, he circles a student reporter named Modi Yisrael, draws his gun and shoots.

We now play the murder frame by frame. Rabin has supposedly taken a hollow-point 9mm bullet in his lung, yet he does not wince or flinch. He is not even pushed forward by the impact nor does his suit show signs of tearing. Instead, he continues walking forward and turns his head behind him in the direction of the noise.

Three doctors watched this moment with me; Drs. B. and H. asked for anonymity and Dr. Klein of Tel Aviv had no objection to being cited. I asked if Rabin's reaction was medically feasible if he was only hit in the lung or if his backbone was shattered. I was told that if the spine was hit, Rabin would have fallen on the spot. However, in the case of a lung wound, I was told that there are two types of pain reaction: One reflexive, the other delayed.

Rabin did not display the reflexive reaction, which would have most likely meant clutching the arm. Instead, he displayed a startle reaction, painlessly turning his head toward the direction of the shot. The conclusion of the doctors was that Rabin heard a shot, perhaps felt the blast of a blank and turned quickly towards the noise. This was a startle reaction, and it cannot occur simultaneously with a reflexive pain reaction.

Rabin takes three or four steps forward, and suddenly the film becomes totally hazy for just under two seconds. A technical expert told me he is convinced the film was deliberately made fuzzy by an artificial process duplicating a sudden, quick movement of the camera. To illustrate his belief, he put his finger on one point, a white reflective light on the windshield, and notes that it stays in the same position while the camera is supposedly moving. Yet the haze lifts momentarily almost two seconds later and Rabin appears, still standing but a step or two forward. He has taken at least five steps since the shooting. Then the swish returns and within the next round of haze, another shot is heard but not seen.

According to the Shamgar Commission and the judges at Yigal Amir's trial, Yoram Rubin was on top of Rabin lying on the parking lot ground when the second shot was fired. The official version is that after hearing the first shot, Rubin jumps on Rabin and pushes him to the ground. Amir approached Rabin and Rubin and, while being held by at least two other bodyguards, pumped one bullet into Rubin's arm and another into Rabin's spleen. There followed a hiatus in the shooting, during which Rubin thinks to himself, "A defect in the weapon", and then according to Rubin,

"I shouted at him several times, 'Yitzhak, can you hear me, just me and no one else, g-dammit? He (Rabin) helped me to my feet. That is, we worked together. He then jumped into the car. In retrospect, I find it amazing that a man his age could jump like that."

This author finds it amazing that a man his [Rabin's] age with bullets in his lung and spleen could jump at all.

Vatican Linked to the Assassination of Yitzhak Rabin

The EU and The New World Order

The EU and The New World Order

by Yacov Menashe Ben Rachamim

Following the end of the Cold War between the two superpowers, the United States and Soviet Union, the only superpower that remained was the United States. Today five powers are trying to challenge American dominance as the only remaining superpower: the European Union, Russia, China, Japan, and India. This may cause a new conflict.

The European Union is the strongest of these powers to pose a threat in international diplomacy. Europe is a concept more than a continent. In reality it is a peninsula of Eurasia. It is made up of many nations that today want to unite and create a continental government. To do this they have created the European Union, a union of many European countries with a single currency and a single European Parliament in Brussels. Using the federalism approach, they first created the European Defense Community (1950-1954). This was an attempt to create an all-European army to defend Western Europe. The neo-functionalism approach uses smaller organiations. For example, they created European Coal and Steel in 1951 followed by the European Economic Community in 1957. The EEC was enlarged in 1973. In 1991, the Maastricht Treaty set out to create the current EU making plans for a common currency – the Euro, a common foreign policy, and a common justice and internal policy. Today, Europe with its EU foreign minister tries to play a role in diplomacy in places such as the Middle East and challenge American diplomacy there.

In international governmental organizations (IGOs), the EU and US have about equal power. For example, both the EU Commission and US Justice Department have to approve mergers of multinational corporations because both powers are important players of the International Monetary Fund. This limits the sovereignty of the US and especially the individual countries that make up the EU.

Regarding hard power, the US and the entire EU as a whole are about equals. The economies are equal but the EU has a larger population and more eports. The EU only spends two thirds of what the US spends on defense but it has more men under arms and two countries within it – Great Britain and France – have nuclear arsenals. Regarding soft power, the US is the model of culture that people all over the world want to emulate but people all over the world like European culture as well. After all, American culture is a product a mixture of European cultures transplanted in the New World.

The EU poses a threat to American global power and world stability because of its agenda of creating a multinational government. Critics of this policy see it as wanting itself to be a model for creating One World government for the entire world under the United Nations with limited powers of individual nation states. At a time of the threat of Islamic terrorism worldwide that threatens to disrupt world peace, nations must retain their sovereignty to defend their national security and national interests. The EU using such institutions as the UN tries to prevent Aerican military action to defend itself as with the war in Iraq. The EU also sides with the Arab enemies of the US and Israel in conflicts in the Middle East.

To sum up, the end of the Cold War left a void in an opposing superpower to the US. The EU, through diplomacy in places throughout the world and especially the Middle East seeks to challenge the interests of the US. This may spark a new cold war between the US and EU.

The E.U. Will Brutally Betray U.S.

John Blundell of the Heritage Foundation questions:
Is the E.U. America's Friend or Foe?

It's great to see some are beginning to ask uncomfortable questions that few folks consider or want to know the answers to, preferring to believe that the Frankenstein Monster we've helped to create in Europe would never turn against us. Even Mr. Blundell believes the U.S. "unconditional backing" of the European experiment of political integration was thought to be in our own best interests; that an increasingly independent Europe could be relied upon for excellent trade opportunities and shared security responsibilities. Who would dare to suggest sinister motives were behind key players in this European project? Even treason.

Herbert W. Armstrong warned the American and British peoples for over 50 years that the German Nazis merely went underground and were adroitly winning the peace. His prophetic words have since been further confirmed by the revelation of a declassified U.S. intelligence document that exposes top Nazi German officials and German industrial leaders made a pact to secure positions and finances throughout the world for secret Nazis to bankroll, advance and forge Germany's Fourth Reich to spring upon an unsuspecting world. Blitzkrieg is the German way. Will we never learn?

Is Germany in danger of backsliding? Isn't it the responsibility of our government to consider every possibility to protect America's future? Many Euro-skeptics are already aware that the "European Union" is modeled after the grand design of the Nazis, and that even as Hitler went from failed putsch to abusing democracy to obtain his goals, isn't it possible that following the failure of WWII German wolves would dress themselves in sheep's clothing and follow the democratic pattern to power?

The German-Jesuit threat to world peace demands serious consideration. With Germany due to take the E.U. bull by the horns in January, with great expectations by the Bavarian pope, will Germany be Europe's miracle worker or simply bewitch the masses to bear the cross to ward off the evil of Islam and then backstab America?

Olmert Hastens Redemption

From A Voice from Hebron --


Olmert Hastens Redemption
Gary Cooperberg
December 25, 2006

The present Israeli Prime Minister seems to be taking steps which will hasten Redemption. While this clearly is not his intention, the fact that Mr. Olmert is taking far reaching steps which, logically, can only lead to the destruction of the Jewish State, he will be forcing Supernatural intervention as the only way to save us from self-destruction.

This is not a pleasant observation, nor a positive one. If G-d is forced to intervene to save us from ourselves, it will be a painful intervention.

“Therefore say unto the House of Israel, thus saith the Almighty G-d; Not for your sake do I do this, O House of Israel, but for My Holy Name’s sake, which you have profaned among the nations...” Ezekiel 36:23

Olmert has failed to prepare a decisive plan to disarm Iran as it develops a nuclear program and declares its intention to destroy Israel. He has refused to destroy the PLO ability to launch Kassams into Israel from the Gaza Strip. He is planning a pre emptive release of PLO terrorists with no offer to receive Israeli soldier Gilad Shalit in return. He is giving the PLO over 100 million NIS as well as arms and ammunition as a “good will” gesture. In effect he has given the PLO everything except his own neck.

There can be no doubt that, should such policies be enacted by any other country, that country would not last for two weeks. It is a policy of self-destruction which clearly helps our enemies in their efforts to destroy us. It is a wonder that such a leader as Olmert is allowed to remain in power. It would seem that our entire government has a death wish for the country it was elected to protect!

While our prophets of old have warned us that the nations of the world will gather against the tiny Jewish State in a futile effort to destroy us, the amount of suffering we will have to endure is dependent upon how we conduct ourselves in these days of challenge. If we express a greater fear of our enemies than for our Creator our punishment will be considerable. If, on the other hand, we face the challenge with genuine faith in our Creator by taking bold steps to destroy our enemies and by refusing to back down to their demands, much of the coming disasters can be averted.

Rather than giving money and arms to the PLO, we should destroy it physically and take back all Jewish Lands we have handed to them. Rather than trying to negotiate for the release of our captives, we should simply declare that if they are not returned within 48 hours we will begin to execute PLO prisoners, one every day, until our captives are returned. Rather than hope that the USA will find a way to control Iran, the IDF should be instructed to immediately plan and execute an operation to destroy its nuclear ability. And rather than hope that the USA will move its embassy to Jerusalem, Israel should move her embassy from Washington to Philadelphia with a promise to return as soon as the USA moves her embassy to Jerusalem.

Self respect and self defense should be top priorities in any normal country. In Israel the only priority above these is our expression of complete faith in the Living G-d of Israel. For only by such expression of genuine faith will we be able to enact the other priorities. Since, until now, our leadership has failed to express such faith, our G-d has given us a hapless leader who is taking very real steps to place Israel in dire danger. It will only be in reaction to clear and obvious threat to our very existence that our leaders will be motivated to at long last turn to G-d. When our leadership and all of our people really feel that G-d is our only hope and we turn to Him in desperation, that is when true redemption will begin.

Right On!: In praise of Christian Zionists

Right On!: In praise of Christian Zionists
Michael Freund, The Jerusalem Post
December 22, 2006

They number in the millions and wield increasing power and influence across the United States. From year to year their voice grows stronger and more resolute, as their role in shaping policy, and the future of American society continues to expand.

Guided by faith, they love Israel passionately and pray for her well-being, rejoicing in her successes and grieving over her setbacks. They are America's Bible-believing Christians, and it is time for Israel to reach out to them in a far more sophisticated and comprehensive manner.

A great deal has already been written about the close ties that have developed between the two, as Israeli officials have at last begun to appreciate the depth and feeling of American evangelical support for the Jewish state. Indeed, what was once unthinkable has now become routine, as leading Christian pastors and Israeli government representatives regularly confer with one another, exchanging ideas and views on the principal issues of the day.

But in far too many instances, Israel's attitude toward evangelicals has been short-sighted and ill-advised, with the relationship often focused on soliciting dollars rather than devotion. And that has got to change, because far greater things are at stake here than just boosting revenues from tourism. For as strong and robust as the American Jewish community might be, it cannot and will not last forever, as recent demographic trends make clear. That leaves evangelical Christians as the best hope for ensuring that bedrock US support for Israel remains firm and unwavering in the decades to come.

In other words, thank God for Christian Zionists. Like it or not, the future of the relationship between Israel and the US might very well hinge far less on America's Jews than on its Christians.

By all accounts, evangelical Christians are a force to be reckoned with. As the Independent put it the other day (London, December 19): "To say the United States is a religious country is an understatement. According to polls, an estimated 47 per cent of American adults claim to be 'born-again' or evangelical."

Even if the figure is an overstatement, it still means there are tens of millions of Americans who identify themselves as evangelical. And this translates into an enormous wellspring of support for Israel, as an August 2006 study by the Pew Research Center revealed. According to the report's findings, "Seven-in-ten white evangelicals (69%) believe God gave Israel to the Jewish people and a solid majority (59%) believes that Israel is the fulfillment of biblical prophecy."

Not surprisingly, the study found that "those who believe that God gave Israel to the Jews and that the State of Israel fulfills biblical prophecy are much more likely than others to sympathize with Israel in its dispute with the Palestinians."

No wonder so many evangelicals have taken to calling themselves "Christian Zionists."

Their sympathy and concern for Israel is readily apparent. I see it in the e-mails I receive regularly from evangelical Christians in the US in response to my columns in The Jerusalem Post. They are sincere and caring, and full of love and concern for Israel and its plight.
Sure, there are some who would like to convert Jews, and they make little or no attempt to hide their agenda. But the vast majority simply wish to bless Israel because that is what they truly believe God wants them to do.

AND IT IS this genuine and heartfelt affection that contains within it the potential to forge a historic alliance, one that could help heal some of the painful wounds of the past even as it paves the way for a close and meaningful partnership in the future.

By adopting a few simple but significant steps, Israel can lay the groundwork for ensuring that the bond with US Christians continues to deepen.

* First, Israel should appoint a roving ambassador tasked with responsibility for maintaining relations with Christians in America. This should not be just an honorary title, nor should it go to one of the usual organizational fund-raisers or foreign service hacks. Instead, the government should appoint a person of faith, one who can communicate with evangelicals in terms they both understand and appreciate.

* Second, Israel should reach out to Christian leaders and their communities, and initiate the establishment of "prayer battalions" in churches across the United States. Like rapid-deployment forces used by the military, these battalions could be mobilized at a moment's notice to pray for specific issues, such as the return of Israel's missing soldiers or the threat posed by Iran's nuclear ambitions.

Such an undertaking would have nothing to do with asking for funds, but everything to do with tapping into the vast reservoirs of faith and belief that underscore Christian backing for the Jewish state.

And you can be sure that if a person is moved to pray for Israel, chances are that his sense of affinity will only continue to grow.

* Other steps that Israel could take to reinforce US Christian support might include organizing an annual conference for religious and lay leaders in Jerusalem, as well as helping them to develop the equivalent of a birthright-Israel program for young churchgoers which would serve to reinforce their connection with the land of the Bible.

Christian support for Israel is broad, profound and deep. If cultivated properly, it can blossom into a lasting friendship of historical, political and diplomatic significance.

And with American Jewry steadily shrinking in size, nothing could be more pressing or more vital.

The writer served as Deputy Director of Communications in the Prime Minister's Office under former premier Binyamin Netanyahu.

Israel could start to show their appreciation for Christian Zionists by ending the Nazi-Muslim occupation of the Temple Mount in Jerusalem.

A House of Prayer for All Peoples?

Israel must stop Muslim religious discrimination against Christians and Jews!
The wicked Wakf (the hostile Muslim authorities) illegally forbids Christians from praying or reading the Bible upon the Temple Mount where Yeshua and His students taught and prayed and worshipped. The Temple Mount is supposedly Judaism's holiest site but you couldn't tell it due to their woeful neglect of it and consequent default to Muslims who also illegally discriminate against Jews of faith and trample their religious rights daily.

Israel must understand that Bible believers, both Jews and Christians, honestly consider it a statement of faith when we speak of the Third Temple as an imminent fact on the ground, a prophecy as sure as reality.

Our spiritual conviction -- that the mosques and foreign objects presently polluting the Temple Mount will soon be history (to clear the way for the Temple) -- should not be misconstrued as "incitement" and our biblical beliefs wrongly classified as "dangerous ideas" to abuse, detain and deport innocent people.

If the Israeli authorities are serious about showing proper appreciation for Christian Zionists, let them lift the unjust ban against this Christian Zionist who suffered unjust deportation -- after spending three weeks in the rotting Russian Compound while Edward Abington, Jr. looked the other way -- for writing an article published in Jerusalem (and read throughout Israel and now the world) that exposed the plight of the Temple Mount suffering under Nazi-Muslim occupation.

Why should Israel reject constructive criticism that would bless all mankind? Isn't it past time Israel change the deplorable condition and improve religious relations and welcome Christian and Jewish worship upon the Temple Mount?

Israel as I see it: Destroy Mass Murderers ("Terrorists") Now

YERUSHALIYIM, Israelite Tribal Territories of Judah and Benjamin, Kingdom of David and Solomon, United Israelite Kingdom of Judah and Joseph, Fourth Day, Tenth Month ("Tevet"), 5767; Yom Sheini (Second Day of the Week/"Mon"-day, December 25, 2006), Root & Branch Information Services []:

Ismail Haniyeh, "Palestine Authority" Prime Minister (and leader of Wahhabi Hamas, "Palestinian" branch of the international Wahhabi Muslim Brotherhood, sister organization of Wahhabi Al Qaeda, all financed by Wahhabi "Saudi" Arabia with petro-dollar profits), appeared in the press worldwide with a chummy smile upon his face. His host was Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, who joined this happy occasion. Ismail declared with a loud voice, "We will never recognize Israel. Jihad will continue for the liberation of Jerusalem!"

Haniyeh said a dirty word: "Israel". All other mass murderers call us the "Zionist entity". He went on praising Iran, stating, "We have a strategic ally in Iran, a country which is our powerful, dynamic and strategic depth". Haniyeh spent four days meeting the Iranian leadership and was promised $250 million.

Ismail, located closer to Israel than Mahmoud, wants to help Iran wipe Israel off the map. Shi'ite Iran, together with Alawite Syria, smuggles in huge quantities of arms to Lebanon, particularly longer range katyushas for Shi'ite Hizbollah and shorter range katyushas for Wahhabi Hamas. Anti-tank equipment has been resupplied to Hizbollah since the July-August 34 day I.D.F. operations in Lebanon. New equipment has also been smuggled to Hamas through the Philadelphi corridor, presumably guarded by Egyptian soldiers. The Israel Air Force has been scouting the areas, but U.N. forces on duty in Lebanon refuse to prevent arms smuggling.

Meanwhle, Hizbollah with Syrian backing has held massive demonstrations of over 100,000 throughout Lebanon, for the right of Hizbollah to receive greater representation in the Lebanese Parliament and replacement of the present Prime Minister. Lebanon and the U.N. were directed to disarm Hizbollah. Not only was disarming Hizbollah ignored, but they have even sneaked back to positions along the border with Israel. Experts say that within a year Hizbollah will be ready to attack Israel with powerful rockets, and with ground operations.

Hizbollah has power in the north and Hamas in the south, in the Gaza Strip given as a gift by Ariel Sharon under the mistaken impression that there would be "reciprocity" by "Palestinians" and Hamas. Instead, they celebrated their "military victory" over the I.D.F. Thereafter, a weak Ehud Olmert as Prime Minister with his unsteady government were set upon offering other unilateral "gifts".

Israel's war against Hizbollah was sadly planned and only badly conducted. Destruction of Hizbollah was claimed as the objective. Lo and behold only the Litany River operation was reached to bring Hizbollah katyushas out of range, and also to discourage Israelis to return northward.

Both objectives failed, as Hizbollah reorganized quickly and began to replace their positions throughout Lebanon, particularly south of the Litany River. The Beirut areas of Hizbollah are already partially restored. To date the cease fire is providing excellent cover for preparations for a two front war against Israel, Hizbollah from the north and Hamas from the south, well equipped and financed, aided by Iran to "wipe the Zionist entity off the map".

Despite efforts by U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and President George W. Bush, stuck in the Iraq mess, to get a "Palestinian" unity Government together representing Mahmoud Abbas and Ismael Haniyeh, all agree that such efforts are at a dead end.

If there was any small chance of a "Palestinian" unity Government, the Ismael meeting with Iranian authorities and Iran's commitment to provide money and arms destroyed that chance completely. Abbas and his armed Fatah murderers are no match for Haniyeh and his armed Hamas murderers.

Abbas may call for new elections, hoping that a majority of "Palestinians" will follow his plans for a two state agreement according to the "Road Map". Outgoing U.N. Secretary General Kofi Annan is appealing to "both sides" to cease fighting. However, a majority of "Palestinians" may still back the late Egyptian from Alexandria (last alias "Yasser Arafat", previous alias "Abdul Rauf el-Codbi el-Husseini") one state "Palestine" "solution", and support Hamas plans to destroy Israel.

This situation must be avoided as quickly as possible. There is a good chance that President Bush may cool off the Iraq situation with the help of six Sunni and Wahhabi nations, and confront Iran directly. Otherwise, we may have a very difficult situation that brings us back to a war that we must begin as soon as we are fully prepared to destroy Hamas and its supporters.

As we recommended all along, destroying mass murder requires round-the-clock operations, attacking the leadership, planners, suppliers and transporters of mass murderers. A good start would be with Ismael Haniyeh and his Ministers. The cease fire will cease soon. We cannot tolerate further arming our enemies while we sit and do nothing.

If war must come, let us be fully prepared. A new Israeli unity government should be formed after elections and thereafter we will hopefully be ready for war with Iran and possibly Syria.

With the help of the Almighty we shall overcome with (or better without) a war.

Shalom from Yerushaliyim,

Is The Plain Truth Too Strong?

Recently somebody who went by the name of "Refiner's Fire" (ironically) condemned my writing style as a stumbling block:

Did you plant the seed of "truth" in this person, or did you turn this person away with your words? Yes, I know people need to hear the "truth", but how can they, if they are getting nailed across the head with a 2x4 by your writing style?

Have you never read where Paul, like Yeshua, must have offended some? "Have I therefore become your enemy because I tell you the truth?" (Galatians 4:16).

There are plenty of others who write in a more gentle style. That is their prerogative. I don't speak against their approach, since the Bible basically teaches "different strokes for different folks." After all, tough love is tough love.

Have you never read where Yeshua spoke of how some will make up any excuse under the sun regardless of the effort to reach them, whether we dance for them or mourn?

Luke 7:31-35

31"To what, then, can I compare the people of this generation? What are they like? 32They are like children sitting in the marketplace and calling out to each other:
" 'We played the flute for you,
and you did not dance;
we sang a dirge,
and you did not cry.' 33For John the Baptist came neither eating bread nor drinking wine, and you say, 'He has a demon.' 34The Son of Man came eating and drinking, and you say, 'Here is a glutton and a drunkard, a friend of tax collectors and "sinners." ' 35But wisdom is proved right by all her children."

If somebody is of God, or being called by God, they can get good and angry like Herbert W. Armstrong did with his wife with her seventh day Sabbath "fanaticism" -- mad enough to check it out, which he did, and then he saw she was right! And he was humble enough to admit it and submit to it and turn from pagan Sunday to the holy Sabbath.

My responsibility is to share the plain truth of the Bible as God has given me to understand it. How folks respond to the plain truth is not my responsibility. It is between God and them. That being said, I believe the time of "soft spoken" ministers is about up, and that we need more refining fire ministers (not dying embers) or refining fire servants of God (not dying embers) willing to turn over a few tables and kick a few chairs and drive out some men and animals from the Temple courtyards with a whip in hand, turning heads and raising eyebrows, as necessary.

The Two Witnesses of Revelation 11 certainly won't speak in pretty platitudes and the whole world will hate their guts and wish them dead! Those who simply want to hear smooth things will continue to hear smooth things from their false prophets and lying ministers.

Isaiah 30:9-11

9 These are rebellious people, deceitful children [1 John 2:4],
children unwilling to listen to the LORD's instruction.

10 They say to the seers,
"See no more visions!"
and to the prophets,
"Give us no more visions of what is right!
Tell us pleasant things,
prophesy illusions.

11 Leave this way,
get off this path,
and stop confronting us
with the Holy One of Israel!"[by replacing him with a Gentilized Jesus, a counterfeit gospel and a different spirit]

2 Timothy 4:3-4

3For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear. 4They will turn their ears away from the truth and turn aside to myths [like Christmas and Easter].

Since our countries are incurring the wrath of God, and soon will suffer divine punishment for our pagan holidays like Christmas pretending to be Christian -- part of our national idolatry and immorality we must confess and forsake to avert a nuclear holocaust -- it's time to love and obey God and:

Isaiah 58

1 "Cry aloud, spare not; Lift up your voice like a trumpet; Tell My people their transgression [the Church and Synagogue], And the house of Jacob [the family of Israelite nations - all Twelve Tribes of Israel] their sins. 2 Yet they seek Me daily, And delight to know My ways, As a nation that did righteousness, And did not forsake the ordinance of their God. They ask of Me the ordinances of justice; They take delight in approaching God.

Folks who continue in their pagan ways and hollow days will be left without excuse. God won't go for the lame excuse, "Well, we didn't appreciate how folks like David Ben-Ariel came across." God will simply say, "Why weren't you like the noble Bereans and look and see if these things were so and act accordingly?"

Acts 17:11

11Now the Bereans were of more noble character than the Thessalonians, for they received the message with great eagerness and examined the Scriptures every day to see if what Paul said was true.

Enough excuses!

Revelation 3:19

As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten. Therefore be zealous and repent.

ZOA Urges Protests as Bush Keeps US Embassy out of Jerusalem

ZOA Urges Protests as Bush Keeps US Embassy out of Jerusalem
13:26 Dec 22, '06 / 1 Tevet 5767
by Hillel Fendel

For the 12th time, US President Bush has invoked a waiver preventing the transfer of the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. American-Jewish leaders, at a White House Chanukah party, are silent.

The Zionist Organization of America (ZOA) has written a sharp letter of protest to the President, citing his twice-a-year violation of his public presidential campaign promise in 2000 to move the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem. During his presidential campaign that year, the ZOA reports, Bush "made numerous speeches before Jewish organizations, promising to move the embassy, for which he received wild applause and standing ovations, including one before thousands of AIPAC delegates in Washington, D.C. in May 2000."

ZOA National President Morton A. Klein responded to a White House official's explanation that the move "would complicate our ability to help Israelis and Palestinians advance toward peace and the president's two-state vision."

The refusal to move the embassy to Israel's capital "actually harms the cause of peace," Klein wrote, "by sending a message to Palestinian Arab terrorists and other Islamist terrorists that their use and threat of terrorism pays and even intimidates the United States into submission to their demands. This only encourages more terrorism, because they see it works. This policy is detrimental to our international war against Islamist terrorists."

In 1995, Congress overwhelmingly voted to mandate the embassy's move. However, it included a clause allowing the President to push off the move by six months. President Bill Clinton invoked the clause several times, and Bush has done so every six months as well.

Bush wrote in a statement Monday that his "administration remains committed to beginning the process of moving our embassy to Jerusalem."

American-Jewish Leaders Quiet
That same evening, leaders of various American Jewish organizations - including the Orthodox Union (OU), AIPAC, Agudath Israel, JCPA, Hillel and others - participated in a menorah lighting and Chanukah party with President Bush at the White House. An OU press release noted with pride that, "For the second year, at the behest of the First Lady Laura Bush, the entire party menu was comprised of kosher food to the highest standards of kashrus."

The ZOA, on the other hand, wrote that it is "deeply disappointed that American Jewish organizations have been frozen into silence about [the refusal to transfer the embassy to Jerusalem]. We also urge pro-Israel Christian groups like Reverend John Hagee's Christians United for Israel to speak out. Such failure may send another harmful message, that American Jewry does not care sufficiently about Jerusalem as Judaism's holiest place."

Reports of the White House Chanukah party did not mention what issues of concern to Israel, if any, were raised. Mattot Arim, a grassroots pro-Land of Israel organization based in Rehovot, has written to the OU, for instance, about the "banishment of 21 Orthodox Jews [from their homes in Judea and Samaria] by the Olmert administration... We still remain in the dark as to whether or not your organization will be taking steps to intercede with the Prime Minister on behalf of these Orthodox families... Our suggestion to the OU, which remains unanswered, was that a conference call might be set up between Prime Minister Olmert and the OU leadership to determine how this annoying and entirely superfluous problem can best and most expeditiously be solved."

Benny Hinn and other Pentecostal drunks fall for Satan

I've visited Pentecostal "bars" before where the "drunks" were falling out on the floor. IT IS DEMONIC.

Every person in the Bible who came into contact with God or Jesus Christ or a holy angel bowed their face to the ground (and were corrected by the holy angels that such worship belongs to God alone) - it was those under demonic influence who came after Yeshua in the Garden who, when Yeshua asked whom they sought, they said Yeshua of Nazareth and He said, "I AM" and they fell backwards. The demons are repelled. Everybody else bows and worships, going forward, face to the ground, prostrate on their stomach sometimes even - but NEVER on their backs speaking false tongues and showing what unclean spirits they're under the evil influence of!

The Pagan Trinity Concept is Condemned by Christians!

The pagan trinity concept was NEVER taught by the Sabbath-keeping Church of God. It stems from the Babylonian Mystery religion and continues today under the guise of traditional Christianity. The Sabbath-keeping Church of God knows that there are presently two unique divine beings in the One God Kingdom-Family and that we can be born again into such a divine royal family at the return of Yeshua and the first resurrection. The Holy Spirit is the power or essence of God, but it is nowhere addressed as God and Paul never greets it in his salutations.

Mr. President: Don't undermine Israel for Germany

President Bush,

Let me speak bluntly with you as a friend would. You profess to be a Christian. What part of the Promised Land of Israel don't you get? There isn't a single Scripture in the Bible that supports carving up the Holy Land, especially for lying visions of peace pimped by false prophets. In fact, there are warnings against such dangerous delusions.

Why aid and abet sworn enemies of Israel to pervert parts of the Promised Land of Israel into an accursed "Palestine"? If Israel's resident Arabs truly want to live in peace, let them live in peace in the Jewish Homeland of Israel - not seek to divide and conquer it through phased destruction.

Stop supporting the dismemberment of Israel for Ishmael! Stop rewarding terrorism! Don't bring divine judgment upon yourself and the United States for undermining our Israeli ally.

Response by Stephen Flurry to Judean Voice ad

Free Image Hosting at

[Click on the ad to enlarge it]

It grieves me to report for the record, for the sake of the Church of God history, that too often politics has impeded the progress of the Work of God. The following is typical of the attitude I encountered when I shared my dreams for God's Church to reach out to Judah, informing them (the Philadelphia Church of God) of what I was doing:

Judean Voice Ad [The Judean Voice was a strong Jewish magazine read throughout New York City and Israel that taught the plain truth of the Torah as shared by former Israeli parliament member and rabbi, Meir Kahane]

Too bad the Church of God doesn't follow Mr. Armstrong's example and run FULL PAGE ADS in newspapers. If God's Church really wants to reach the general public they would run such ads that would generate attention and controversy. I'm doing what I can to reach "the cities of Judah" (Isa. 40:9) by blowing "the trumpet of Zion" and sounding "an alarm in [God's] holy mountain" (Joel 2:1), letting God's warning roar (Joel 3:16).

(Thursday, March 1, 2001)

Stephen Flurry promptly responded:

Too bad you don't follow Mr. Armstrong's example of submitting to God's government and growing within the body of His one true Church. Are you trying to say that by putting a FULL PAGE ad in the "Judean Voice," you are following in Mr. Armstrong's steps - that you are the one generating attention and controversy? Please.

My response:

Shalom Stephen,

What I said was I am DOING what I can to reach Judah with what I have, too bad God's Church didn't stop playing Church and only preaching to a converted audience and step out from behind the podium and GO TO THE GENERAL PUBLIC. You've miserably failed to do that with all of your many resources.

Did Mr. Armstrong submit to those politicking in Sardis? [Church of God, Seventh Day] NO. Will I submit to the likes of Herr Leap who would have me obey men over God? Who would forbid me from doing all that I can for God? (Luke 9:50). NO. It's too bad the PCG [Philadelphia Church of God] has failed to apply MM [Malachi's Message] to themselves and quit looking to men to save them. It's too bad that too many have failed to learn that is IS following GOD'S GOVERNMENT when we refuse to obey men when it means disobeying God.

I've continued to grow, by God's grace, as a member of HIS Church (I wasn't baptized into any sect or denomination of men, remember?). I'm not a Catholic who thinks salvation is impossible outside of the Church hierarchy/religious establishment.

All that being said, I still feel that the PCG has more truth than any of the other splinter groups (like Mr. Armstrong felt about Sardis), but is not rich and in need of nothing (like some vainly imagine). That's why I still direct people and attention to the Philadelphia Trumpet [magazine] that many may glean what God will grant them. May God bless the PCG and every individual to continually grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ (not any man).

CYPRUS: Why Does No One Cry for Cypriots as they do for "Palestinians"?

CYPRUS: Why Does No One Cry for Cypriots as they do for "Palestinians"?

copyright (c) 2006 by Mr. Joel Bainerman

Excerpt: "Following the 1974 Turkish invasion over a third of the 650,000 Greek Cypriots became refugees. Embarking on what they called a 'Reactivation Effort', within seven years all of these refugees lived in permanent homes and were gainfully employed, without any U.N. agency involved in the process. ('Palestinians' could take a few lessons from the Cypriots when it comes to helping oneself not be refugees anymore and staying off the U.N. dole)".

While most Israelis have never given it much thought, one of Israel's closest neighbors is by far its best friend in the region.

I just returned from a visit to the tiny nation-state of Cyprus and was amazed to find out how much the Cypriots not only like Israel, but admire our country. The two countries have something important in common: They think of themselves and aspire to be part of Europe (Cyprus already is a standing member of the European Community), and not "Middle Eastern".

To better understand the Cypriots, we need to first explore what happened back in the summer of l974. Why did Turkey invade the independent nation of Cyprus and continue to occupy it for the next 32 years? Why has there been no organized campaign to stand behind the Greek Cypriots and demand that Turkey remove its occupying forces? Why do the hearts of "liberals" worldwide not leak for Cypriots as they do for "Palestinians"?

I never gave these questions much thought, such as how the 1974 Turkish invasion took place, until visiting Cyprus. The origins of the conflict in Cyprus were never high on the agenda in my high school or university history class.

For those of you in the same boat, here are the answers:

The "Cypriot conflict" began back in the mid-l950s when the British Colonial Office decided that Cyprus had immense geo-strategic significance. The British realized that he who controls Cyprus can dominate most of the Middle East's air space (which was proven correct in the Anglo-French-Israeli invasion of the Suez Canal in 1956).

This geo-strategic significance put the British in conflict with a small, but well-motivated groups of Greek Cypriots who either wanted Cyprus to be independent, or to be merged into Greece as were other Greek islands. Ethnic conflict with the much smaller Turkish population (about 30% of the total island population) led to periodic fighting. At no time in its history did Cyprus ever belong to the modern nation of Turkey.

In 1959, the British cooked up a constitution for power sharing between Greek and Turkish Cypriots, but also generously granted themselves total sovereignty over a portion of the island. The result was the creation of the independent Republic of Cyprus. When fighting continued between Turkish and the Greek Cypriots in the mid-60s, the administration of U.S. President Lyndon Johnson got involved in the conflict. The United States saw Turkey (which had been part of N.A.T.O. since 1952) as being a more important future ally than Cyprus.

Another view of what happened is given by Brendan O'Malley, co-author with Ian Craig of The Cyprus Conspiracy, perhaps the only book every published to offer a true history of the events that took place in Cyprus from the early 1960s through the 1974 invasion by Turkey.

O'Malley claims:

"While most people think the 'Cyprus problem' begins when the Turks invaded in 1974, it's origins are in the early and mid-60s when the U.S. began its involvement in the region".

As Craig and O'Malley tell the story, former U.S. National Security Advisor Henry Kissinger conspired with the Greeks and the Turks to first foment a coup in Cyprus using right-wing groups aligned to the then military dictatorship in Greece, which enabled Turkey to invade the island on the grounds that they were "protecting the ethnic Turkish population" (none of whom were Turkish citizens).

At the same time, the Nixon administration had been paying Turkey not to grow opium, or at least that is what The New York Times told us, claiming it was part of the White House's "war on drugs" (the first "war on drugs", not to be confused with the Reagan-Bush "war on drugs" in the 1980s). Craig and O'Malley say that the Turks asked the U.S. if they would mind if Turkey invaded Cyprus. Kissinger then told the Greek military dictatorship that the U.S. would not mind if Greece invaded Cyprus. This is how the events unfolded.

In addition to occupying the entire top third of the island, as a result of the Turkish invasion about 70% of the Republic's economic capacity was confiscated, about $4 billion (in l974 dollars). This included real estate, all major water resources, the main port, highly productive agricultural holdings, and hotel properties, much of that concentrated in the resort town of Farmagusta on the eastern coast.

Following the 1974 Turkish invasion over a third of the 650,000 Greek Cypriots became refugees. Embarking on what they called a "Reactivation Effort", within seven years all of these refugees lived in permanent homes and were gainfully employed, without any U.N. agency involved in the process. ("Palestinians" could take a few lessons from the Cypriots when it comes to helping oneself not be refugees anymore and staying off the U.N. dole).

Despite Cyprus having been lost a third of its territory to a foreign invader (Turkey), within 20 years the Greek Cypriot nation built a prosperous and efficient island nation state which provided for all the needs of its million or so inhabitants and foreign residents. Cyrpus has a huge tourism industry, offshore financial industry, and a complete industry catering to retirees from the U.K. and Europe.

Cyprus's Cinderella story from rags to riches is nothing short of a miracle. In just a few decades this tiny industrious nation with its highly educated population (Cyprus has the highest per capita number of university graduates in Europe and the third highest in the world) built world class industries in transportation, shipping, banking and telecommunications. Today the G.N.P. per capita income is over $15K. All of this was done with no external aid from anyone, least of all, the United Nations.

I hope that every "Palestinian" reads that previous sentence more than once.

Shalom and Chanukah Sameach from Zichron Ya'akov,

Israeli retreat from Bethlehem, DBA detained for praying

International Christian Embassy
starts drive to ensure rights to territories

by Liat Collins

The International Christian Embassy in Jerusalem is beginning an international campaign to ensure Christian rights after IDF (Israeli Defence Forces) withdrawal from the territories.

On Sunday, some 1,200 Christians carrying banners proclaiming "Bethlehem will be Jewish Forever," attended a solidarity and prayer rally at Rachel's Tomb.

International Christian Embassy spokesman Jan van der Hoeven stressed the need to keep Bethlehem open to all faiths and spoke against the rise of Islamic extremism. He noted the growing number of Christian residents in Bethlehem who are asking the embassy's help in moving out of the city for fear of Moslem action against them once the IDF leaves.

The deadline for IDF evacuation has been brought forward to December 22.

Nearly all the participants at the rally were visiting for the International Christian Embassy's Feast of Tabernacles activities. Rabbi Shlomo Riskin, of Efrat, also addressed the crowd.

About 30 residents of Jerusalem's Gilo section attended the rally, noting the proximity between their neighborhood and Rachel's Tomb.

Yesterday, David Ben-Ariel, a Christian member of the Temple Mount Faithful, said he was harassed and detained by both Moslem Wakf guards and the police after he went up to the Mount to pray.

"It's not news that Jews can't pray there, even though everybody claims there is freedom for all faiths," he said. "But people don't realize that Christians can't pray there either," he said.

Ben-Ariel was wearing a shirt with the Temple Mount Faithful slogan on it at the time of his arrest.

Christmas and Lady-day by Alexander Hislop

The Two Babylons
by Alexander Hislop

Chapter III
Section I: Christmas and Lady-day

How, then, did the Romish Church fix on December the 25th as Christmas-day? Why, thus: Long before the fourth century, and long before the Christian era itself, a festival was celebrated among the heathen, at that precise time of the year, in honour of the birth of the son of the Babylonian queen of heaven; and it may fairly be presumed that, in order to conciliate the heathen, and to swell the number of the nominal adherents of Christianity, the same festival was adopted by the Roman Church, giving it only the name of Christ. This tendency on the part of Christians to meet Paganism half-way was very early developed; and we find Tertullian, even in his day, about the year 230, bitterly lamenting the inconsistency of the disciples of Christ in this respect, and contrasting it with the strict fidelity of the Pagans to their own superstition. "By us," says he, "who are strangers to Sabbaths, and new moons, and festivals, once acceptable to God, the Saturnalia, the feasts of January, the Brumalia, and Matronalia, are now frequented; gifts are carried to and fro, new year's day presents are made with din, and sports and banquets are celebrated with uproar; oh, how much more faithful are the heathen to their religion, who take special care to adopt no solemnity from the Christians." Upright men strive to stem the tide, but in spite of all their efforts, the apostacy went on, till the Church, with the exception of a small remnant, was submerged under Pagan superstition.

That Christmas was originally a Pagan festival, is beyond all doubt. The time of the year, and the ceremonies with which it is still celebrated, prove its origin. In Egypt, the son of Isis, the Egyptian title for the queen of heaven, was born at this very time, "about the time of the winter solstice." The very name by which Christmas is popularly known among ourselves--Yule-day --proves at once its Pagan and Babylonian origin. "Yule" is the Chaldee name for an "infant" or "little child"; * and as the 25th of December was called by our Pagan Anglo-Saxon ancestors, "Yule-day," or the "Child's day," and the night that preceded it, "Mother-night," long before they came in contact with Christianity, that sufficiently proves its real character.

Israel Ministry of Foreign Affairs: Negotiations with Holy See on Track


Negotiations with Holy See on track 14-Dec-2006
(The following is an agreed press communique)
The Bilateral Permanent Working Commission between the State of Israel and the Holy See met Wednesday morning (13 December 2006) at the Foreign Ministry to continue negotiations on the "economic agreement" concerning fiscal and property matters.
The delegations met in an atmosphere of great cordiality, made progress, and renewed their shared determination to speed up their work in order to conclude the agreement as soon as possible. They agreed to meet again on 29 January 2007.


Israel stands condemned, its Jewish people betrayed and marked for destruction, about to be put on the fast track to Auschwitz borders and brutal Roman occupation as the end result of "negotiations" - UNJewish collaboration - with German-Jesuits on the eve of the anniversary of Hitler's rise to power.

The treacherous Israeli leaders, including Shimon Peres who came to power over Rabin's dead body, foolishly think they can escape the TSUNAMI the Holy See will soon release, flooding the Holy Land of Israel with "peacekeepers" and polluting Mount Zion and the Temple Mount with their unclean presence. The bloody Vatican will stop at nothing to possess Jerusalem and will dispose of useful Jewish idiots once they've served their perverse purposes.

The lying peace process will strip Israel of its sovereignty over Jerusalem and all the wheeling and dealing with the Vatican will crush those responsible.

Isaiah 28:

14 Therefore hear the word of the LORD, you scoffers
who rule this people in Jerusalem.

15 You boast, "We have entered into a covenant with death,
with the grave we have made an agreement.
When an overwhelming scourge sweeps by,
it cannot touch us,
for we have made a lie our refuge
and falsehood our hiding place."

16 So this is what the Sovereign LORD says:
"See, I lay a stone in Zion,
a tested stone,
a precious cornerstone for a sure foundation;
the one who trusts will never be dismayed.

17 I will make justice the measuring line
and righteousness the plumb line;
hail will sweep away your refuge, the lie,
and water will overflow your hiding place.

18 Your covenant with death will be annulled;
your agreement with the grave will not stand.
When the overwhelming scourge sweeps by,
you will be beaten down by it.

19 As often as it comes it will carry you away;
morning after morning, by day and by night,
it will sweep through."
The understanding of this message
will bring sheer terror.

Quotations Concerning the Jesuit Order

Quotations Concerning the Jesuit Order

Compiled by Darryl Eberhart, Editor of ETI & TTT newsletters

Tackling the Tough Topics and Call to Decision

"My history of the Jesuits is not eloquently written, but it is supported by unquestionable authorities, [and] is very particular and very horrible. Their [the Jesuit Order’s] restoration [in 1814 by Pope Pius VII] is indeed a step toward darkness, cruelty, despotism, [and] death. …I do not like the appearance of the Jesuits. If ever there was a body of men who merited eternal damnation on earth and in hell, it is this Society of [Ignatius de] Loyola."

John Adams (1735-1826; 2nd President of the United States)

"It is my opinion that if the liberties of this country – the United States of America – are destroyed, it will be by the subtlety of the Roman Catholic Jesuit priests, for they are the most crafty, dangerous enemies to civil and religious liberty. They have instigated MOST of the wars of Europe.”

Marquis de LaFayette (1757-1834; French statesman and general who served in under the command of General George Washington during the American Revolutionary War)

"The war [i.e., the American Civil War of 1861-1865] would never have been possible without the sinister influence of the Jesuits."

Abraham Lincoln (1809-1865; 16th President of the United States)

Christians cause confusion over Christmas!

After reading The ACLU Zealots' Christmas Mission by Bonnie Alba, I wrote her:

Christians who read and believe the Bible wage war against "Christmas" to
let the truth set folks free who choose to be.

The confusion in this country, first and foremost, is the fault of
keeping a Roman Catholic hollow day, the "mass of Christ,"
having failed to completely come out of BABYLON.

The confusion is the Roman Catholic Cult dressing up a pagan holiday (they stole) in Christian drag. Throw in atheists and it's all a mess that the God of the Bible and the real Jesus don't want their holy Family name associated with.

C. H. Spurgeon on Christmas

Spurgeon from a sermon preached by C. H. Spurgeon on Dec. 24, 1871:

We have no superstitious regard for times and seasons. Certainly we do not believe in the present ecclesiastical arrangement called Christmas. First, because we do not believe in the mass at all, but abhor it, whether it be sung in Latin or in English. Secondly, because we find no Scriptural warrant whatever for observing any day as the birthday of the Savior; and consequently, its observance is a superstition, because not of divine authority. 'Superstition' has fixed most positively the day of our Savior's birth, although there is no possibility of discovering when it occurred. ... It was not till the middle of the third century that any part of the Church celebrated the nativity of our Lord; and it was not till very long after the Western Church had set the example, that the Eastern adopted it. ... Probably the fact is that the "holy" days were arranged to fit in with the heathen festivals. We venture to assert, that if there be any day in the year, of which we may be pretty sure that it was not the day on which the Savior was born, it is the 25th of December. ... Regarding not the day, let us, nevertheless, give God thanks for the gift of His dear Son.


The Pilgrims also had enough biblical sense to reject the "mass of Christ" as pagan and Roman Catholic.

What doesn't traditional Christianity understand about such a simple command not to try and modify pagan holidays to worship the true God since He says He hates it and rejects them as abominations? Why do some professing Christians permit themselves to be ensnared, carried away with heathen customs and pagan practices?

Deuteronomy 12:30-31

30 take heed to yourself that you are not ensnared to follow them, after they are destroyed from before you, and that you do not inquire after their gods, saying, ‘How did these nations serve their gods? I also will do likewise.’ 31 You shall not worship the LORD your God in that way [not the pagan gods, but modified to try and worship God - but in vain] - for every abomination to the LORD which He hates they have done to their gods...

Jeremiah 10:2-3

2 Thus says the LORD:

Do not learn the way of the Gentiles

IF Jesus is Lord, then why do so many professing Christians refuse to love and obey Him? (Titus 1:16, 1 John 2:4).

1 Samuel 15:22-23

“Has the LORD as great delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices [lip service/sacrifices],
As in obeying the voice of the LORD?
Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice,
And to heed than the fat of rams.

23 For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft,
And stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry.
Because you have rejected the word of the LORD [for your own traditions],
He also has rejected you...

Bonnie Alba responded:

Thank you for your comments and information. It might surprise you to know that I agree with your presentation. I am a long-time reader and admirer of C.H. Spurgeon. There are many Christians, regardless of sect, are turning away from the commercialization of Christmas. They are using Christmas to refocus their energies and faith into what God has called them to do---a personal relationship with Christ---all through the year and not just the "lip service" many are prone to. The Mass is only a Catholic rite. Protestants, the remnant who already have a distinct ongoing relationship with Jesus, take Christmas as a "reminder" of who He is and what He has done for us. The symbols (definitely not idols) are reminders also of our faith in Jesus (the Lord who saves).

Thank you for taking the time to write.

Good morning Bonnie and thank you for promptly responding.

I'm glad you're against the commercialization of the Name of Christ but those who have an ongoing relationship with Jesus Christ don't need any whitewashed pagan holiday to "remind" us of who He is and what He has done for us. We're to come out of BABYLON all the way, not look back with any sympathy upon Sodom, so help us God.

Christians must learn to hate hollow days that misrepresent God and Christ and love the biblical festivals that reveal His plan of salvation for all mankind. We should be offended at the Roman Catholic Cult for misappropriating the Name of Christ for their abominations, just like Simon Magus did. We should war against "the mass of Christ" for the fraud it is and let the light of truth expose their Babylonian Mystery religion's darkness.

Happy Hanukkah! (I don't officially keep it, but commemorate it as a Christian by reading at least parts of the Books of the Maccabees)
