Report: Obama Will Present ‘General Framework’ For Peace During March Visit To Israel

03/07/2013 3 comments

They will say peace, but there will be no peace. In order to have even a remote chance of being “considered” by the Palestinians, any “general framework” for “peace” will need to begin with the division of Jerusalem as well as the division of the land of Israel, something that the prophet Joel said would happen in the last days. And it doesn’t end good for them that do …

Joel 3:1-2, “For behold, in those days and at that time, when I restore the fortunes of Judah and Jerusalem, I will gather all the nations and bring them down to the valley of Jehosh’aphat, and I will enter into judgment with them there, on account of my people and my heritage Israel, because they have scattered them among the nations, and have divided up my land”

The Times of Israel – “President Barack Obama will present a ‘general framework’ for Israeli-Palestinian peace during his visit to Israel and the West Bank in two weeks’ time, Israel’s Channel 10 news reported Thursday night, quoting what it said were remarks made by the president in a pre-visit White House briefing for US Jewish leaders.

He will not unveil a ‘comprehensive Middle East peace plan’ during the trip, the report said, but told the leaders Thursday they should not rule out him doing so ‘sometime in the next six, nine or 12 months.’

A US source close to the issue, however, described the Channel 10 report as ‘absolutely false.’

A senior administration official told The Times of Israel: ‘The president did invite leaders from across the American Jewish community to discuss and get input about his upcoming trip to Israel. He did not present a framework for peace talks.’

Added the official, ‘The president reiterated America’s unshakeable support for Israel and thanked the leaders for role they play in strengthening ties between the two nations. The president noted that the trip is not dedicated to resolving a specific policy issue, but is rather an opportunity to consult with the Israeli government about a broad range of issues – including Iran, Syria, the situation in the region, and the peace process. He also underscored that the trip is an opportunity for him to speak directly to the Israeli people about the history, interests, and values that we share.’

According to Channel 10, Obama told the Jewish leaders he would speak extensively about the peace process with Israel’s leaders, and would make clear that Israel’s desire for an accommodation with the Palestinians needed to be underpinned by concrete steps. He will be asking Israel ‘which tough steps it will be willing to take,’ the TV report said.

At the same time, Obama told the Jewish leaders Thursday he would make clear that he recognizes how much more unstable the Middle East has become, and would highlight the US’s iron-clad commitment to Israel, the report said.” Read more.

Flashback: Obama To Demand Israeli Plan For Withdrawal From West Bank During March Visit, Or ‘He’ll Act On His Own’ – “The Land. The City. The Temple Mount. If this report is accurate it will undoubtedly include the status of Jerusalem and will only serve as yet another excuse for the Palestinians to stage a violent, Islamist uprising. And judging from the state of the Islamic world of late, the next one may be much more difficult, if not impossible, to quell …” Read more.

Flashback: Barack Obama Says Israel Must Pull Back to Pre-1967 Borders, Netanyahu: That Will Not Happen – “Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu bluntly told President Barack Obama on Friday his vision of how to achieve Middle East peace was unrealistic, exposing a deep divide that could doom any U.S. bid to revive peace talks. In an unusually sharp rebuke to Israel’s closest ally, Netanyahu insisted Israel would never pull back to its 1967 borders — which would mean big concessions of occupied land — that Obama had said should be the basis for negotiations on creating a Palestinian state.” Read more.

‘Absolutely Incredible’: Thousands Of Dead Fish Found Along 10 KM Stretch Of Beaches In South Australia, ‘I’ve Never Seen A Fish Kill Like It’

By Tim Jeanes, ABC News – “Authorities hope to establish within a day or two why thousands of fish were found dead on Eyre Peninsula in South Australia.

Thousands of young leather jackets washed up in the Port Neill area.

Kirk Gibbons from the caravan park said it was a big talking point among locals.

‘The three main beaches here at Port Neill there’d be, on the high-tide mark, literally hundreds and hundreds and hundreds on each beach,’ he said.

‘[It is] not a pleasant sight, you literally couldn’t take a step without stepping on half a dozen or more.

‘At least the birds had a good feed, there were lots of birds around there feeding.’

Fisheries regional manager Andrew Carr doubted there was too much cause for alarm.

‘If, for example, there was some sort of spillage in the water or the ocean, some sort of toxic chemical you would think every fish, every species, would be killed and that’s why it would seem to be more environmental or natural causes,’ he said.

‘But we’re going to make sure and do a biopsy just to double check.'” Read more.

Half Devil Half Child: Can One Be Both Muslim And Christian?

Ephesians 5:11, “… have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather expose them.”

1 John 1:4-3a, 2:21-23a, “Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits, whether they are of God; because many false prophets have gone out into the world. By this you know the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is of God, and every spirit that does not confess that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is not of God. And this is the spirit of the Antichrist … I have not written to you because you do not know the truth, but because you know it, and that no lie is of the truth. Who is a liar but he who denies that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist who denies the Father and the Son. Whoever denies the Son does not have the Father …”

By Joel Richardson – “One of the most controversial issues that has plagued the Missions movement in recent years is the Insider Movement or as some refer to it; Chrislam. There has recently been a full documentary produced that I would like to highly recommend to everyone who has a concern for a proper biblical approach to reaching Muslims with the Gospel. The title of the documentary is Half Devil Half Child. The issue of hyper-contextualization among missionaries is a pressing issue that will only become even more relevant in the years to come. If you are a pastor that supports missionaries to the Islamic world, this is certainly an issue that you should inform yourself concerning. It is important that those who love Muslims and desire to see them reached in a way that is faithful to the Scriptures are not supporting those who are promoting what can often become outright syncretism and compromise. Make sure to visit the Half Devil Half Child website and recommend the documentary to your friends.Source – Joel’s Trumpet.

Mass Arrests Of Christians, Reports Of Torture, Inconsistencies In Official Statements – ‘What Is Going On In Libya?’

03/07/2013 Leave a comment

What is going on in Libya? What is going on is Islam. Islam means “submission” and what we are witnessing is nothing more than complete submission to the will of “Allah” and his beast religion, something that we will continue to witness in increasing measure until our Deliverer comes to rescue all those who belong to Him

Daniel 11:43, “He will gain control of the treasures of gold and silver and all the riches of Egypt, with the Libyans and Cushites in submission…”

Daniel 12:1b-2, 10, “And there will be a time of distress such as never occurred since there was a nation until that time; and at that time your people, everyone who is found written in the book, will be rescued. Many of those who sleep in the dust of the ground will awake, these to everlasting life, but the others to disgrace and everlasting contempt… Many will be purged, purified and refined, but the wicked will act wickedly; and none of the wicked will understand, but those who have insight will understand.”

By Raymond Ibrahim, The Algemeiner – “Last week’s news of four Christian missionaries in Libya placed under arrest, possibly facing the death penalty for ‘proselytizing,’ is apparently the tip of the iceberg. Yesterday, Arabic media reported that over 100 Christian Copts from Egypt, who appear to have been living and working in Libya, were recently arrested in Ben Ghazi—also on the accusation, or pretext, of being ‘Christian missionaries.’

One video made by the Libyan militia interrogators—most of whom look like Islamic Salafis, with long beards and clipped mustaches—appeared on the Internet yesterday. It shows a room full of detained Copts. They sit hunched over on the floor—with all their hair shaven off, looking like dejected, or doomed, concentration camp prisoners. According to one source, many of these Copts have been tortured. Some have had the famous Coptic cross often tattooed on the wrists of Copts burned off with acid.

Next, the camera-man zooms in on the material which got them in this predicament: atop a table, several Bibles, prayer books, and pictures of Jesus, Mary and other saints appear spread out. The Libyan interrogators complain about how these Christians could dare bring such material into Libya, and that they, their abductors, are sure that the Copts were going to use such Christian materials to proselytize Libya, to sporadic ejaculations of “Allah Akbar!” from across the room.

What is going on in Libya? Do these reports—first of four foreign Christian missionaries, including one American, now of more than 100 Christians from neighboring Egypt—indicate that Christian missionaries recently decided to flood Libya in droves? Or are these ongoing reports an indication that post-Gaddafi Libya is simply becoming increasingly intolerant of any Christian presence?

Concerning the four foreign missionaries whom the Western media picked up on earlier, it is difficult to say who they are and what they were doing, since they basically have been swallowed up by the Ben Ghazi prisons; their names and identities have not even been revealed. As for the 100 Egyptian Copts, it is hard to believe they were proselytizing. Christians in Egypt dare not proselytize to their fellow Muslim citizens, who speak the same dialect and share the same Egyptian culture. It is a dangerous thing to do. Is it reasonable, then, to believe that some 100 Copts decided to proselytize to Muslims in Libya—where it is common knowledge that the Obama-supported jihadis reign?

Even the Coptic Church in Egypt made statements to this effect. According to Coptic Bishop Pachomios, ‘This is a very Read more…

Chechen Islamists Join Syrian Rebels, ‘Truly Today There Is A Chance To Establish An Islamic State On Earth’

03/07/2013 Leave a comment

By Thomas Grove and Mariam Karouny, Reuters via AINA – “Flanked by almost 20 men with rifles, Omar Abu al-Chechen kneels on a carpet and delivers a rousing speech urging fellow Muslims to support the ‘jihad’ against Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

Dressed almost entirely in black, the militant from Russia’s Chechnya region declares an Islamist state is within reach. Fellow fighters from the brigade of foreign militants he leads translate his Russian words into Arabic.

His recently distributed video highlights the role militants from the volatile North Caucasus region now play in Syria’s civil war, fighting a government that has been backed by Russia and staunchly protected by President Vladimir Putin.

It also puts in focus the security risks they may pose for Russia if they return to the Russian region, which borders the area where Moscow plans to host the Sochi 2014 Winter Olympics.

‘Jihad needs very many things. Firstly it needs money. Much is dependent on money today for jihad,’ said al-Chechen, his nomme de guerre, the leader of what rebels and websites call the Brigade of Migrants, an opposition group of foreign fighters.

‘(We) have missed many chances, but truly today there is a chance to establish (an Islamic state) on Earth,’ he said.

Syrian rebels confirmed separately that he is in Syria and the leader of the brigade. His real name was not clear.

While Moscow has been one of Assad’s main protectors, members of an Islamist insurgency involved in daily clashes in Russia’s predominantly Muslim North Caucasus and their compatriots have trickled into Syria to fight for the rebels.

‘This is the first time that a mass number of Chechens have taken part in military actions abroad,’ said analyst Mairbek Vatchagayev, based in Paris, adding that claims were made that Chechens had fought with the Taliban in Afghanistan or in Iraq, but no definitive proof had been given.” Read more.

In the past five years, the bodies of dozens of young Chechen women have been found dumped in woods, abandoned in alleys and left along roads in the capital, Grozny, and neighboring villages.” Read more.

Nigeria: At Least 13 Christians Slaughtered By Islamists For Not Saying Muslim Prayers

03/07/2013 Leave a comment

Revelation 13:15, “And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.”

PM News – “The Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN has urged the authorities to probe the gruesome killing of 13 factory workers identified as Christians at Sheka, Sharada Phase 111 in Kumbotso Local Government Area of Kano, by gunmen suspected to be Boko Haram members…

‘The occupants of that compound are mostly factory workers, and they are Christians. The gun men who came in taxi asked if they were not observing the evening Muslim prayers; and when they confirmed their victims were Christians, they started killing them sparing only the female and children.

‘After the attack, I counted at least, 13 dead bodies murdered in gruesome manner. Security agencies later came and evacuated them, while the very few of them who survived the attack fled the area and vowed never to return,’ said a resident of the area.

Bishop Ransom Bello, CAN chairman in Kano has been in a very bad mood, not only because of the killings but what he described as the non-challant attitude of Kano state government over the incident.

Bello who is also the General Overseer of Calvary Life Assembly said he has handed over the matter to CAN’s national leadership, adding that with what is happening, it has become obvious that Christians are no longer safe in Kano.

‘Reports of the attack reaching us disclosed that on that fateful Saturday at about 7 p.m, Muslim faithful were conducting their prayer close to the affected compound occupied by Christian families, when two taxi cabs stopped in front of the compound and the occupants, who all concealed their arms dashed into the complex and demanded to know why the residents were not part of the 7 p.m. Muslim prayer.

‘They responded by telling the visitors they were Christians and so could not be part of the Muslim gathering. At that point, they separated the men from their wives and children and shot them dead on the spot after ordering the women and children into their homes.'” Read more.
