Only Holy land - Israel!
"Behold, I will bring them from the north country, and gather them from the coasts of the earth, [and] with them the blind and the lame, the woman with child and her that travaileth with child together: a great company shall return thither.

They shall come with weeping, and with supplications will I lead them: I will cause them to walk by the rivers of waters in a straight way, wherein they shall not stumble: for I am a father to Israel, and Ephraim [is] my firstborn.

¶ Hear the word of the LORD, O ye nations, and declare [it] in the isles afar off, and say, He that scattered Israel will gather him, and keep him, as a shepherd [doth] his flock.

For the LORD hath redeemed Jacob, and ransomed him from the hand of [him that was] stronger than he.

Therefore they shall come and sing in the height of Zion, and shall flow together to the goodness of the LORD, for wheat, and for wine, and for oil, and for the young of the flock and of the herd: and their soul shall be as a watered garden; and they shall not sorrow any more
at all." Jeremiah 37
"The burden of the word of the LORD for Israel, saith the LORD, which stretcheth forth the heavens, and layeth the foundation of the earth, and formeth the spirit of man within him.

Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of trembling unto all the people round about, when they shall be in the siege both against Judah [and] against Jerusalem.

And in that day will I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people: all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces, though all the people of the earth be gathered together against it.

In that day, saith the LORD, I will smite every horse with astonishment, and his rider with madness: and I will open mine eyes upon the house of Judah, and will smite every horse of the people with blindness.

And the governors of Judah shall say in their heart, The inhabitants of Jerusalem [shall be] my strength in the LORD of hosts their God." Zechariah 12: 1-5
"But now thus saith the LORD that created thee, O Jacob, and he that formed thee, O Israel, Fear not: for I have redeemed thee, I have called [thee] by thy name; thou [art] mine.

When thou passest through the waters, I [will be] with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee: when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon thee.

For I [am] the LORD thy God, the Holy One of Israel, thy Saviour: I gave Egypt [for] thy ransom, Ethiopia and Seba for thee.

Since thou wast precious in my sight, thou hast been honourable, and I have loved thee: therefore will I give men for thee, and people for thy life.

Fear not: for I [am] with thee: I will bring thy seed from the east, and gather thee from the west; I will say to the north, Give up; and to the south, Keep not back: bring my sons from far, and my daughters from the ends of the earth; [Even] every one that is called by my name: for I have created him for my glory, I have formed him; yea, I have made him." Isaiah 43: 1-7
It is God's land

"No Jew is at liberty to surrender the right of the Jewish Nation and the Land of Israel to exist. No Jewish body is sanctioned to do so. Even all the Jews alive today have no authority to yield any piece of land whatsoever.
This right is reserved to the Jewish People throughout the generations.

This right cannot be forfeited under any circumstances. Even if at some given time there will be those who declare that they are relinquishing this right, they have neither the power nor the authority to negate it for future generations.

The Jewish Nation is neither obligated by nor responsible for any such waiver.
Our right to this land, in its entirety, is enduring and eternal. And until the coming of the Redemption, we shall never yield this historic right."

David Ben-Gurion, First Prime Minister of Israel, speech to the 21st Zionist Congress

Israel real estate market tops in the world

One industry watchdog lists it as the fastest-rising property market on earth.

JERUSALEM (AP) - Israel, despite perennial fears of war, has emerged as one of the hottest - and least likely - property markets in the world: Since real estate collapsed around the globe in 2008, at least one industry watchdog lists it as the fastest-rising property market on earth. But with global economic meltdown - and the subprime mortgage fiasco that precipitated it - still fresh in people's minds, officials are stepping up efforts to rein in its overheated property sector. The fear is that a property bubble could shake confidence in an economy that withstood the worst of the world's financial crisis. In the span of months, the central bank has raised interest rates several times and the government is rallying to build new units in this land-strapped country. "The housing market has set off enough crises, and we're not going to let that happen in Israel," Bank of Israel Governor Stanley Fischer said earlier this month in announcing his sixth rate hike in just over a year. According to Global Property Guide, a trade magazine that monitors the housing market, Israeli housing prices in the second quarter of 2010 rose sixth-fastest in a ranking of 36 countries. Four of the top five, including Singapore and Latvia, were rebounding from sharp price drops. So looking at the past two years ended in June - the last period for which there is data - Israeli real estate clocks in at No. 1." source - My Way



Barkat: 'Just Say No' to Splitting Jerusalem

"Jerusalem must stay united. There is not one example in the world of a divided city that ever worked" - Nir Barkat

Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat addressed a crowd in Atlanta on Monday at the annual Jewish National Fund Conference. Barkat discussed the Palestinian Authority's demand that Israel hand over all parts of the city that were under Jordanian occupation between 1948 and 1967 to become the capital of a new Arab state. During this period, Jordan did not respect UN decisions that called for free access to religious sites in the city to all religions and did not allow Jews to visit the Western Wall, vandalized the Mount of Olives cemetery, and blew up the Hurvah synagogue. Barkat offered a straightforward solution: "We just have to say a simple 'No' about Jerusalem to the Palestinians and move on," he said. PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas demands control over all formerly Jordanian parts of Israel's capital city, including the Old City and other historically Jewish areas. The city has been unified for decades, since it was annexed following the Six Day War of 1967. Jerusalem must remain "the united, undivided capital of Israel," Barkat told his audience." source - Arutz Sheva


Referendum on Land Surrender May Include Judea and Samaria

A Cabinet-level committee Monday put teeth into last July's law requiring a plebiscite before any surrender of parts of Jerusalem or the Golan Heights. The bill is a victory for nationalists, who hope to expend the referendum provision for the approximately 300,000 Jews living in Judea and Samaria. Likud MK Ofir Akunis said he will submit a bill next week to require a plebiscite before Israel could give up parts of Judea and Samaria to the Palestinian Authority.


Benjamin Netanyahu told the voters He would continue to build in Judea and Samaria.

Monday's approval by the Ministerial Committee on Legislation of the Knesset involves procedural issues that allow implementation of the recently-passed law. A provision allows for circumventing a referendum in the event that 80 percent of the legislators agree, a virtually impossible circumstance given the nationalist stance of the Knesset. If Israel reaches any agreement with Syria for surrendering the Golan Heights or with the Palestinian Authority for giving up parts of Jerusalem, the public would vote on the question, "Are you in favor of or opposed to the agreement approved by the Knesset?" The only two ministers opposing the bill were Yitzchak Herzog of Labor and Dan Meridor of Likud and who is considered the head of the left-wing of his party. He previously has gone on record of favoring surrender of the Golan Heights in return for a peace pact with Syria." source - Arutz Sheva



Growing ties between Turkey, China, Iran worry Israel and U.S.

Turkey held military drill with China, after canceling with Israel; cooperation also reflected in weapons deals, with Iran buying from China mainly missile technology.


Someone must be reading the 38th chapter of Ezekiel again...


"The United States and Israel are watching with concern the growing military cooperation among Turkey, China and Iran, especially following a joint Turkish-Chinese air-force exercise last week. Until two years ago Israel was Turkey's main partner for air combat training. In 2001 the Turkish air force inaugurated a tactical air warfare center in Konya with Israel and the United States. Until 2008 the Israel Air Force was a frequent guest in Turkey's sky and a regular participant in the country's big annual exercise, Anatolian Eagle. In the wake of Operation Cast Lead and the subsequent deterioration of bilateral relations Turkey last year revoked Israel's participation in the maneuvers. The United States decided not to take part in the exercise this year because of that decision. A number of other NATO members followed suit. Turkey replaced the Israel Air Force with its Chinese counterpart. China sent Sukhoi SU-27 fighter aircraft and pilots to train with Turkey's F-16 fighters. In the past these exercises were held in relatively openness, but last week they were held covertly, with only a brief report appearing in the Turkish media after the exercise." source - Haaretz




Infected Iranian nuclear computer system worm may contain link to book of Esther

"So they hanged Haman on the gallows that he had prepared for Mordecai. Then was the king's wrath pacified." Esther 7:10

Deep inside the computer worm that some specialists suspect is aimed at slowing Iran's race for a nuclear weapon lies what could be a fleeting reference to the Book of Esther, the Old Testament tale in which the Jews pre-empt a Persian plot to destroy them.



For such a time as this? Iran would do well to remember that Haman was hung on the very same gallows he had built for Mordeci

That use of the word "Myrtus" - which can be read as an allusion to Esther - to name a file inside the code is one of several murky clues that have emerged as computer experts try to trace the origin and purpose of the rogue Stuxnet program, which seeks out a specific kind of command module for industrial equipment. Not surprisingly, the Israelis are not saying whether Stuxnet has any connection to the secretive cyberwar unit it has built inside Israel's intelligence service. Nor is the Obama administration, which while talking about cyberdefenses has also rapidly ramped up a broad covert program, inherited from the Bush administration, to undermine Iran's nuclear program. In interviews in several countries, experts in both cyberwar and nuclear enrichment technology say the Stuxnet mystery may never be solved. source - NY Times

If any of the Iranian leaders would read the Bible, they would see that in the 38th chapter of Ezekiel, Russia and Iran lead a group of nations to attack Israel. Funny thing, though, Ezekiel says that when they fire their weapons (nukes), that Almighty God turns their own weapons back on them and blows them to bits. Ahhh, the misery that could be avoid if them would only read the prophetic Word of Scripture. So go on, Iran, keep building those nukes, but just remember Haman.

Netanyahu says Olmert's deal is void, Israel will never give up Western Wall

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu is under no obligation to honor any of the commitments that former prime minister Ehud Olmert made to the Palestinians, Netanyahu's associates said on Saturday night, reiterating statements Netanyahu made throughout his campaign for the premiership a year and a half ago. Olmert wrote an opinion piece for Friday's Jerusalem Post in which he called on Netanyahu to offer the Palestinians what he did, which he first revealed to the public in a June 2009 interview with Newsweek's Kevin Peraino



"There is no situation in which Netanyahu or any Likud leader could offer the Palestinians what Olmert
offered, especially regarding Jerusalem," said Likud faction chairman Ze'ev Elkin, who is close to Netanyahu. "I don't think any Likud MK would vote for it, and the public would be overwhelmingly against it as well." Likud hawk MK Danny Danon said the problem was not with Netanyahu but with the president of the United States, Barack Obama. "I don't believe Netanyahu would have considered Olmert's conditions but there is no doubt that Obama sees them as obligatory," Danon said. "They don't understand that we had an election that changed the reality in Israel." source - JPost



Olmert wants Israel to relinquish sovereignty over Western Wall and Temple Mount

Israel should agree to an international trusteeship in Jerusalem's Holy Basin, should allow non-Jewish neighborhoods of Jerusalem to serve as the capital of a Palestinian state, and should offer to solve the Palestinian refugee problem within the framework of the Arab peace initiative, former prime minister Ehud Olmert urges in an op-ed article in today's Jerusalem Post. "If [Israel] takes a clear stance on these issues
and presents them as its position for the negotiations," Olmert writes, it would "transform the atmosphere" surrounding the direct talks with the Palestinian Authority.




The source confirmed that Olmert's reference to an international trusteeship in the Holy Basin, which "will not be a sovereign part of either the State of Israel or the state of Palestine," would involve Israel relinquishing sovereignty at the Western Wall and the Temple Mount. "There would be complete and unlimited access for all believers - of course, for Jews - to these sites. Basically," the source said, "this would represent a maintenance of the status quo, but under international trusteeship." source - JPost

So my first thought is - is he crazy?? Perhaps he has forgotton what happened to the last two leader of Israel who thought they should give up the Temple Mount. Click here to read what happened to them.



Cairo shocked by Israel's inaction on recent terror attack

After murdering four Israelis outside Hebron on Aug. 30, the Hamas gunmen planned to bury their bodies and use them as live hostages to extort the release of fellow-terrorists from Israeli jails. This was divulged by the Egyptian semi-official Al Ahram Monday, Sept. 20. Cairo was so astonished by Israel's failure fight the new wave of Hamas terror that it leaked this information, gained from grilling Hamas General Security chief Muhamad Hamis Dababash, to the Egyptian newspaper.


MUSLIM TERRORISTS STIKE PREGNANT WOMEN DEAD IN HEBRON AS FOUR ISRAELIS ARE MURDERED BY
PALESTINIANS


The Egyptians were totally nonplussed when 48 hours after this intelligence was put in Israel's hands, Israel was idle. Even more puzzling was the Netanyahu government's passivity in the face of another connected security threat: Hamas cells had infiltrated the Sinai Peninsula from Gaza bent on a dual mission: to abduct Israeli holidaymakers and repeat their mortar-missile attack on Eilat and possibly Jordanian Aqaba too during the weeklong Succoth festival beginning Wednesday, Sept. 22." source - DEBKA



Hamas uses phosphorus shells in stepped-up assault on Israel

IDF explosives experts identified four phosphorus shells among the nine rounds fired from Gaza against Israeli civilian locations Wednesday, Sept. 15, as Israeli-Palestinian talks resumed in Jerusalem. This was the first known use by Palestinian terrorists of phosphorus whose use against civilians is banned by international law against civilians.


Hamas uses deady - and illegal - phosphorus shells against civilians in Israel

Phosphorus shells cause severe burning and set off fires. Hamas has cranked up its attacks since Israeli and Palestinian leaders began talking at Sharm el-Sheikh under the aegis of US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton Tuesday. None of the participants mentioned Hamas' escalating war on Israel and the IDF reprisal was understated, a belated Air Force strike against empty tunnels in southern Gaza. debkafile reported earlier:
Tuesday and Wednesday morning, three missiles, almost certainly Iranian-made Grades, were fired from Gaza at the two Israeli port cities of Ashkelon and Ashdod, and another missile and nine mortar rounds by noon Wednesday - 7 against Eshkol region farms and two at Kibbutz Nirim. This was the most extensive Palestinian assault from Gaza since Israel's Cast Lead operation early last year. debkafile's military sources report that at least three explosions were heard across the port-towns of Ashkelon and Ashdod, sending people scurrying to the nearest bomb shelters, although the "Red Color" alert was not switched on - apparently to fit the official government line, which is not to rock the diplomatic boat. In fact, the army spokesman tried insisting at first that only one rocket had been fired and only hours later did teams arrive to investigate the blasts.

1 terrorist dead, 4 wounded in IDF response to Gaza attack

IDF returns fire after Palestinian cells launches anti-tank missile at Israeli troops by border fence; top Hamas military leader threatens wave of violence intended to derail peace talks. One Palestinian was killed and at least four were wounded on Tuesday after the IDF returned fire in response to a terrorist attack in the northern Gaza Strip. The IDF said that a force operating near the fence came under anti-tank fire and responded with tank shells and light gunfire. One of the terrorists was killed and four others were wounded. Rocket attacks from Gaza have increased since before the Rosh Hashana holiday. Predictions in the defense establishment are that Hamas will continue to carry out attacks against Israel as the peace talks progress. Commander of the Gaza Division Brig.-Gen. Eyal Eisenberg said that the IDF held Hamas responsible. "The Gaza Strip is controlled by Hamas, which is a terrorist organization," he said. "Hamas is in control of the territory and we hold it responsible for what happens in the Strip." source - JPost


Obama says Israel's security hinges on surrendering 1967 Six-Day War gains

U.S. President Barack Obama has sidestepped a chance to back Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's demand that the Palestinian Authority call Israel a Jewish State, but he told reporters that the Prime Minister should accept Abbas's demand and extend the building freeze for four more months. The Prime Minister told the Cabinet Sunday morning, "I hear about two states, but I don't hear two peoples." In a press conference Friday, President Obama directly told reporters that Israel should meet Abbas' demand but ignored the Israeli demand, stated in a reporter's comment that "Abbas said the Palestinians won't recognize Israel as a Jewish state." The reporter continued, "The question is, if these talks fail at an early stage, will this administration disengage? Or maybe you're ready to step up and deepen your personal involvement."


Is Obama conspiring with the Palestinians behind Netanyahu's back? Can Israel still trust the US?

President Obama did not refer to the "Jewish State" issue except to clearly imply that its definition depends on Israel's surrendering all of the areas restored to the country in the Six-Day War in 1967. In a reply to another question if Israel "should extend the settlement moratorium as a gesture to peace," President Obama commented that "it makes sense [for Israel] to extend that moratorium," which is due to expire September 26." source - Israel National News



Hamas may accept a peace agreement with Israel

Hamas may be willing to accept a peace deal with Israel should the agreement resolve the core issues at hand, Palestinian chief negotiator Saeb Erekat told Army Radio on Sunday. "It is now time for decisions, not for negotiations," he said, and referred to building moratorium saying that the next few days would be key in determining the direction of progress.



We have reached agreement on the agenda of the direct talks," Erekat said. "We have also reached agreement on a timeline for a temporary framework agreement - 12 months." Erekat said that the final-status issues that the sides have agreed to discuss during this period include Jerusalem, borders, refugees, settlements, water, security and prisoners held in Israeli jails. He added that defining the future borders of a Palestinian state would be the first issue on the negotiating table. "This is the time for decision-making, not negotiations," he said. "What is needed is agreement on the principles of the finalstatus issues. When the leaders and decision-makers agree on the principles, the negotiators will then start discussing the details. Erekat revealed that the Palestinians have set up 14 committees consisting of more than 220 experts to prepare for the negotiations. The Palestinians were encouraged by what they heard from the US administration at the launch ceremony for the direct talks last week, he said. "The Americans told us that they plan to play an active and major role in the peace talks," he said, noting that it was still unclear whether US officials would be present at the negotiating table." source - JPost



Palestinians set their sights on all of Jerusalem

The Palestinian Authority on Sunday again reiterated to its own people in Arabic that the ultimate goal in regards to Jerusalem is to wrest control of the entire city from Israel. And once again, the international media ignored the nefarious agenda that the Palestinians themselves admit they have. The WAFA news agency, an official mouthpiece of the Palestinian Authority and the PLO wrote that the Palestinian government was outraged this week when the World Jewish Congress kicked off its annual gathering in Jerusalem.

"The action...is a blatant defiance of international resolutions, which considers all Israeli actions in Jerusalem as 'invalid and illegal', and which emphasizes that Jerusalem is part and parcel of the occupied territory," read the Palestinian statement. The Palestinians called the World Jewish Congress meeting an act of "Israeli aggression against the holy city" and "a provocation to the feelings of Arab and Islamic nations."

The thing is that the World Jewish Congress is being held at the David Citadel Hotel on the western side of Jerusalem, which up until now has not been disputed as sovereign Israeli territory. It was also telling that the Palestinian statement did not use the phrase "East Jerusalem" when referring to Palestinian rights to the city, but rather the entirety of Jerusalem." source - Israel Today


Hamas spokesman: We will attack more Israeli settlers

A Hamas spokesman told Arab language newspaper Al-Hayat that the group intends to continue its attacks on settlers because they are "legitimate targets" on Saturday. Azat al-Ghashek reportedly said that "Zionist settlers" made up an entire army living on occupied land, with a large cache of weapons at their disposal.


Ever wonder what Palestinian television programming was like? Now you know.

The spokesman made the comments in an interview with the newspaper, adding that the peace talks launched on Thursday in Washington were nothing but a "media circus." On Thursday, Reuters reported that thirteen Gaza militant groups have joined forces to launch a wave of attacks against Israel. When asked if the renewed attacks would include suicide bombings, the Hamas spokesman reportedly answered: "All options are open." source - JPost





Obama pressuring Israel to give up Jerusalem

Israel is under attack, her enemy? Barack Hussein Obama.



(Reuters) - Israel's defense minister said on Wednesday the Jewish state would be willing to hand over parts of Jerusalem in peace talks with the Palestinians to be launched by President Barack Obama. Defense minister Ehud Barak's rare comments about the need to partition Jerusalem, which is at the heart of the conflict, could signal Netanyahu's willingness to divide the holy city in any final peace deal with Palestinians. Netanyahu has publicly balked at ceding the eastern, Arab part of the city that Israel captured in the 1967 Mideast war. "West Jerusalem and 12 Jewish neighborhoods that are home to 200,000 (Israeli) residents will be ours," Barak told the Haaretz newspaper. "The Arab neighborhoods in which close to a quarter million Palestinians live will be theirs," he added, referring to East Jerusalem, which the Palestinians want as capital of a future state in the West Bank and Gaza Strip." source - Reuters



Obama is on a mission, one that is clear and defined - divide the land of Israel and give it to the palestinians. He wants this trophy like no other. He is the Destroyer of Jerusalem.
