By Attila Somfalvi, ynet – “The Counter-Terrorism Bureau at the National Security Council on Thursday issued a repeated travel warning to the Sinai Peninsula, calling on all Israelis who are planning to travel to or who are currently staying in Sinai to return to Israel immediately.
A travel warning to the area has been in place for a long time, however the Bureau is now reiterating its call, citing terror groups’ intention to carry out attacks against Israeli citizens.
The Bureau stated that it has obtained concrete information on terror organizations in Gaza Strip and other elements that are planning terror attacks and abductions of Israeli tourists in Sinai.
The statement also requested that relatives of Israelis who are currently in Sinai to inform them about the travel warning.
Despite the alarming announcement, a source at the border crossing between Israel and Egypt claimed that only 2,000 people crossed over into Sinai in the past two days, few of which were Israelis.
The source told Ynet that since the revolution in Egypt, Israelis have become more attentive to travel advisories, and most of those who enter Egypt these days are either Israeli-Arabs, or Israelis who head for the casinos in Taba. Only few, the source added, were backpackers heading to Sinai’s beach resorts.
In recent weeks, a number of attempts to carry out attacks against Israeli citizens and soldiers near the Egypt border have been thwarted.” Read more.
By Joel Richardson – “Among the many prominent end-time passages of the Bible, one of the clearest passages that proves the Antichrist and his coming armies will arise from the Middle East, is Daniel 11. In this chapter, a prophecy is given that begins with the historical Medo-Persian empire and concludes with the death of the Antichrist.
A large portion of Daniel’s prophecy (vv. 20-34) is focused upon the historical conflict between the infamous Antiochus IV Epiphanes, the king of the Seleucid Kingdom, who is called ‘the King of the North’ and King Ptolemy VI, the king of the Ptolemaic Kingdom who is called ‘the King of the South.’
The Seleucid Kingdom in the north included the region of modern-day Turkey, Lebanon, Syria, Jordan, Iraq, Iran and even Afghanistan and Pakistan. The Ptolemaic Kingdom in the south ruled Egypt and portions of modern-day Libya and Sudan.
All scholars agree that Antiochus IV Epiphanes, in the north, is perhaps the most significant type of the Antichrist in the whole Bible.
In the later portion of Daniel’s prophecy, the historical events and wars that took place between Antiochus IV in the north and Ptolemy VI in the south bleed into a powerful end-time prophecy concerning the Antichrist (the King of the North) and Egypt (the King of the South). In fact, this chapter is among one of the clearest ‘slam dunks’ for the view that the Antichrist will come forward out of the Middle East and not a revived Roman or European kingdom.
Recognizing the highly problematic nature of this passage for the European-centered view, however, some teachers, in more modern times, have developed a view which holds that the King of the North is not a reference to the Antichrist, but instead is Read more…
Acts 15:29, “You are to abstain from food sacrificed to idols … You will do well to avoid these things.”
1 Corinthians 10:19-21, “… the sacrifices of pagans are offered to demons, not to God, and I do not want you to be participants with demons. You cannot drink the cup of the Lord and the cup of demons too; you cannot have a part in both the Lord’s table and the table of demons.”
Great food, bad decision. As many of you already know, for meat to be considered Halal the animal must be sacrificed in the name of Allah. According to Biblical Scripture, Allah is a false god. False gods are idols. And as we can see from the verses above, God has a few things to say to His children when it comes to food that has been sacrificed to idols: don’t eat it.

Saudi Cleric: Giving Women Equal Rights Sends Shivers Down Your Spine And Makes Your Hair Stand On End
Here is a cleric from Saudi Arabia who decides to share a few thoughts from an Islamic perspective regarding the Convention on Elimination of Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW) that was adopted by the UN General Assembly on December 18, 1979 …
Qur’an Sura 4:34, “Men have authority over women because [Allah] has made the one superior to the other, and because they spend their wealth to maintain them. Good women are obedient. They guard their unseen parts because [Allah] has guarded them. As for those from whom you fear disobedience, admonish them and send them to beds apart and beat them. Then if they obey you, take no further action against them. Surely [Allah] is high, supreme.”
Sa’d Al-Qa’ud: “(CEDAW) means the elimination of all types of discrimination against women. In other words, it means complete and total equality between men and women. Allah says: ‘And the male is not like the female.’ The danger in this agreement lies in its being an international agreement. That means, according to the tyrannical international law, that it supercedes all local constitutions… Reading the articles of this agreement, dear brothers, sends shivers down your spine, and makes your hair stand on end, due to its hideous nature … Anyone contemplating this agreement knows full well that this is World War III … Anyone who reads this sinful, infidel CEDAW agreement will see clearly that whoever promoted this agreement, followed it, or helped it come into being has renounced Islam and declared war against Allah and his shari’a.”
But it’s the women who are causing earthquakes. Because the Jews are corrupted them …
Islamic Cleric on Sudan TV: “The worst thing is when societies are torn apart. We can all see on TV how the planet is being torn apart. The Jews are behind that. ‘Each time they kindle the fire of war, Allah extinguishes it. They strive to spread corruption on earth.’”
Here’s an update on this story …
Police fear that Islam, who raped four women over three months in east London, may have attacked many more.
At Woolwich Crown Court, Judge Patricia Lees sentenced Islam to a minimum sentence of 11 years before he is considered for parole. She told him: ‘The nature and extent of these offences drives me to the conclusion that you represent an extreme and continuing danger to women, particularly those out at night.’
Islam was traced through the number plate of his girlfriend’s car after he kidnapped and raped the 15 year-old in September 2010. He grabbed her from behind as she walked home with a friend, then drove her to a secluded spot where he raped her twice.
In a victim impact statement read to the court, the teenager said: ‘No one will ever understand the flashbacks, they are so real, at night I lay in my bed and it is like I am there.
‘It is like a screen in my mind forcing me to relive that night again and again. People will say time will heal, but I think time has helped me accept the truth — that I will never escape what happened.’” Read more.
Flashback: Muslim Violence in Europe Increases Sharply: Is It Crime or Jihad? – “The alarming increase in Muslim violence against indigenous Europeans the last several months has been virtually ignored by the American media. Is this due to respect for ‘peaceful’ Muslims, fear of the violent ones, or political correctness? I suspect it’s ‘all of the above.’ While the scant reporting that has occurred has mostly labeled the violence as ‘crime’ committed by Muslim ‘youths’ for ‘economic reasons,’ the facts suggest otherwise: When Ayatollah Khomeini returned to Iran from exile, he urged Muslims to move to Europe to claim it for Islam. They have moved there by the millions with precisely that intent.” Read more.
By Louise Rafkin – “In 2002, five years before journalist Chauncey Bailey was murdered by members of Your Black Muslim Bakery, a woman identified only as Jane Doe 1 stepped forward to report decades of sexual abuse, welfare fraud and violence by the bakery’s leader, Yusuf Bey Sr.
She was prepared to hand over to Oakland police DNA from three of her children, evidence that Bey had impregnated her, the first time when she was 12 years old.
Given the history of violence by members of Your Black Muslim Bakery, this was a risky move. But the woman was fueled by a mother’s anger. Her daughter, then 18, alerted her that Bey was trying to abuse her – his own daughter.
Now a devout Christian, Jane Doe 1 has decided she no longer wants to be the nameless whistle-blower. Her name is Kowana Banks and, in her first public interview, she said she made the decision to come forward to help other children trapped in similar situations. She hopes to publish a book about her experiences.
‘Abused people go one of two ways: Either they are going to self-destruct or they’re going to make a difference,’ said Banks, 44. ‘I’m going to make a difference.’
The violent saga of Your Black Muslim Bakery is fading into Oakland history, but wounds remain among Bey’s victims and family members. Today marks the fifth anniversary of the murder of Bailey, the Oakland Post editor who had been investigating the bakery’s finances…
Today, Banks is an optimistic, composed woman who has moved on as best she can…
Having wrestled with low self-worth, nightmares, and other aftereffects of childhood trauma, Banks is writing a book about her life with the therapist’s help. She credits her conversion to Christianity with making it possible for her to smile again.” Read more.
“Asia’s third-largest economy — INDIA — was hit by three more huge power grid failures, one day after a similar, but smaller power failure covered half the country — leaving more than 650 million people without electricity in the world’s biggest blackout according to the ATCA Research & Analysis Wing. More than half the population of India has been affected, which is roughly 10% of the world’s population and bigger than the entire population of the European Union or the United States, Russia and Brazil combined. In parallel, hours of power outage in the scorching summer sparked protest in most parts of Pakistan and angry protesters attacked offices of power supply departments in some areas.
Is a ‘Solar Flare’ partially responsible for India and Pakistan’s massive power outage? Could it have been a Coronal Mass Ejection (CME) since most of Pakistan, along with northern India, also suffered long blackouts? Given that rains had arrived, temperature was down in north India so there was less requirement for a power overdraw. For example, the temperature in New Delhi on 31st July was 25.4 degrees Celsius, more than ten degrees below what it had been during the peak of the summer heat. If electricity overuse was the sole cause of the power failure, because of too many people drawing power, this would have happened before now.
A medium-size solar flare erupted from the sun this weekend, hurling a cloud of plasma and charged particles towards Earth on a cosmic path that was expected to deliver a glancing blow to our planet on July 31st, according to space weather forecasters, the day the massive power outage took place across India and Pakistan. The M6-class solar flare exploded from the sun on Saturday — July 28th — unleashing a wave of plasma and charged particles, called a coronal mass ejection (CME), into space. ‘This is a slow-moving CME,’ astronomer Tony Phillips wrote on Spaceweather.com, which regularly monitors space weather events. ‘The cloud’s low speed (382 km/s estimated) combined with its glancing trajectory suggests a weak impact is in the offing. Nevertheless, polar geomagnetic storms are possible when the cloud arrives.’…
We all know that blackouts happen in India and Pakistan somewhat regularly, but not on this massive scale.” Read more.
Explosive material was seized at an address in San Roque where a Turkish man was arrested. Two other men were held near Almuradiel.
They are thought to have been planning an attack in Spain or elsewhere in Europe, according to the Spanish Interior Minister Jorge Fernandez Diaz.
The arrests are part of one the biggest international operations to date against al-Qaeda, Mr Diaz said.
The material is currently being tested but is thought to be enough to ‘destroy a bus’, he told reporters.
Mr Diaz also said one of the suspects was a senior al-Qaeda operative with extensive experience ‘in the manufacture of poison and car bombs’.
One of the men put up ‘massive resistance’ during the arrests, he added. None of them have been named.
Police found the explosives in a flat in the southern town of La Linea de Concepcion in Andalusia and arrested a Turkish national at the address.
The two other suspects were travelling on a bus from Cadiz on Spain’s Atlantic coast to Irun near the French border when they were seized in a lay-by near Almuradiel by a police special operations group, Mr Diaz said.” Read more.
By Aidan Clay, ICC – “Christians approaching a Protestant worship service near Freha, Algeria last week were told to return home by an armed mob of disgruntled neighbors. The mob had assembled outside the service and demanded the church’s immediate closure. The congregation, which meets in an unregistered house-church, is the latest group of Christians to be threatened and harassed because of their inability to quickly obtain legal status.
On July 20, a group armed with guns and knives prevented Christians affiliated with the Protestant Church of Algeria (EPA) from entering a house where services were being held in the village of El Majene, near Freha in northern Algeria. The mob accused the church’s 80 members of meeting ‘illegally’ and launched a petition demanding the church’s immediate closure, the Algerian daily La Dépêche de Kabylie reported.
Despite permission given by the Ministry of Interior in July 2011 stating that all EPA churches are allowed to officially register their congregations, many EPA churches, including the church in El Majene, have not yet been approved. Until the registration is processed, Protestant churches are considered illegal and often face harassment by neighbors and local authorities.
‘It’s possible that more churches will be closed because the registration process takes so long,’ an EPA spokesman told International Christian Concern (ICC). ‘Without legal status, neighbors will continue to pressure the church and force Christians to leave. But, if churches have government authorization, then there will not be as many problems.’
Similar demands to close Christian worship services have threatened EPA churches before. ‘The same thing occurred in Tizi Ouzou when several churches were ordered to close under threats that legal action would be taken against the leaders,’ said a Protestant church leader in Tizi Ouzou. ‘Our church also received this order in 2008, but because we resisted, the church continues to this day.’
Meanwhile, a controversial law introduced in 2006 that regulates non-Muslim worship continues to hinder the freedoms of religious minorities. Ordinance 06-03 prohibits Christians from holding services without government authorization and outlaws religious practices that conflict with the government’s interpretation of Islamic law.” Read more.
Revelation 6:8, “And I looked, and behold a ‘chlōros [green]‘ horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the ‘thērion [brutal, savage men]‘ of the earth.”
In Revelation 6:8 John describes the “fourth horseman of the Apocalypse” as being “chlōros”, literally translated as “green”. Green is the official color of Islam and is believed to have been Mohammed’s favorite. The “fourth horseman” is described as having power over the fourth part of the earth. I don’t believe that it is a mere coincidence that Islam today has dominion over a fourth part of the earth. John describes the “fourth horseman” as having the power to “kill with sword.” Islam is spread through Jihad, the “Sword of Islam.” The “fourth horseman” also kills with hunger/famine. Spiritual destitution aside, Islamists would even prefer to see children starve to death than have them receive life-saving aid from the “Christian West.” The “fourth horseman” kills with “death”, and the love of death in suicide and martyrdom operations against men, women and children for the cause of “Allah” permeates Islamic culture, so much that they openly declare to “love death more than you love life.” Lastly, the “fourth horseman” is described as killing with “the beasts of the earth.” The Greek word “thērion” here is, I believe, being used metaphorically to refer to “savage”, “brutal” and “bestial” men, a perfect description of what we see today in the radical world of Islam’s death seekers …
Egyptian Cleric Hashem Islam Ali Islam on Al Aqsa TV (Hamas/Gaza): “I say to the people who object to martyrdom operations that martyrdom operations are among the deeds most pleasing to Allah. They constitute a religious duty in this day and age, in order to strike the Zionist enemy.”
MEMRI – “In Pakistan, where Islamic clerics routinely promote Antisemitism, leading Pakistani politician and prominent religious leader Maulana Fazlur Rehman recently accused Israel of deploying Israeli soldiers in support of Indian security forces in Kashmir.
Maulana Fazlur Rehman is the head of the Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam (JUI-F) party. His remark on Kashmir came in an official statement marking the Kashmir Martyrs’ Day – July 13, 2012. Rehman is the head of Pakistan’s Parliamentary Committee on Kashmir Affairs.
In another Antisemitic video that appeared on YouTube in June 2012, Pakistani cleric Pirzada Muhammad Raza Saqib Mustafai argued that world peace will be established only when all the Jews are wiped out from the earth.
In the video entitled ‘Yahodi Islam Kay Aur Aman Kay Asal Dushman Hain’ (Jews Are the Real Enemy of Islam and Peace), Muhammad Raza Saqib Mustafai states: ‘And all the troubles that exist around the world are because of the Jews. When the Jews are wiped out, then the world would be purified and the sun of peace would begin to rise on the entire world.’ His speech is part of the Fikr-e-Iman (Concern for Faith) series of lectures.
Mustafai is a leading cleric belonging to the Barelvi School of Sunni Islam and is also the founder of Idarat-ul-Mustafa Pakistan, which is described as a spiritual movement for the enforcement of Islamic shari’a in the country. He is a cleric at the Markazi Jamia Masjid Gulzar-e-Madinah, Gujranwala, Pakistan.” Read more.
Pakistani Cleric: ‘When The Last Jew Will Be Killed From This World, Then Peace Would Be Established’ – “And a time is about to come when Allah would bestow such a success on Islam that there would not be a single Jew left on the face of the earth. Hazrat Eisa [Jesus] would come; the warriors of Imam Mahdi [according to Islamic traditions he is the last Imam] would march into the battlefield; the pig would be killed and the symbol of cross would be broken… And when the last Jew will be killed from this world, then peace would be established in the world – so much so that snakes would roam among people but would not bite. Wolves and goats would drink water from the same quayside and goats would not have any fear from wolves. It is the guarantee of world peace when the last Jew is slain. As long as there are Jews in this world, peace cannot be established in the whole world.” Read more.
