Israel: Worry Grips Jerusalem Residents Awaiting Next Attack, Security Measures Not Seen In Years Now In Place
Zechariah 12:2-3, “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.”
Declaring the end from the beginning, the Bible is proving itself to be more than just human in origin every day. According to the article below it may be largely “business as usual” in west Jerusalem right now, but in the Old City of east Jerusalem — which was built around 1000 BC and was the entire city of Jerusalem up until 1860 where the Western Wall, the Church of the Holy Sepulchre and al Aqsa Mosque all reside — we’re seeing an entirely different situation develop. Jews, Christians and Muslims all reside within the Old City, but Muslims — increasingly “radicalized” and lawless — now make up the overwhelming number of residents. And this, my friends, is prophetic. According to Zechariah 14:1-3, the world will one day witness an “intifada” unlike any other, an uprising that could be sparked by a triggering event to rouse the Muslim population to obligatory jihad, possibly strengthened by other Islamist elements coming from or through the West Bank to take over much of east Jerusalem. The homes of Jews and Christians will be plundered, non-Muslim women will be raped as the “spoils of war.” And as that day approaches, let us not sleep as others do, but let us watch and be sober. For while the Islamic world continues to surround Israel, we know what, and we know Who, is coming …
Al Rod Al Anf, Volume 2, Page 182: “You see [our god Allah] will soon make you inherit their land, their treasures and make you sleep with [rape] their women.” – The “prophet” Mohammed
Zechariah 14:1-4a, “Behold, a day is coming for the LORD, when the spoil taken from you will be divided in your midst. For I will gather all the nations against Jerusalem to battle, and the city shall be taken and the houses plundered and the women raped. Half of the city shall go out into exile, but the rest of the people shall not be cut off from the city. Then the LORD will go out and fight against those nations as when he fights on a day of battle. On that day his feet shall stand on the Mount of Olives …”
By Daphne Rousseau, AFP – “Rocked by weeks of deadly violence, Jerusalem is witnessing security measures not seen in years as residents try to maintain some semblance of normal life while awaiting the next attack.
Raheli, who is eight months pregnant, recently stopped travelling on the city’s light railway system, which she dubs ‘the train of fear’, after deadly attacks at roadside stops by lone Palestinians.
‘The last time I took it I stayed pressed against the back wall of the train stop,’ she says. ‘I had images in my head of a car ramming in to us or an explosion. It’s too stressful, I would rather walk.’
Earlier this month a Palestinian from east Jerusalem deliberately rammed his car into two groups of pedestrians, killing a border police officer and wounding another nine people, the second deadly car attack in two weeks.
Twin knife attacks outside Jerusalem this week killed an Israeli soldier and a young woman and wounded two others as simmering violence spread across Israel and the occupied West Bank.
In annexed east Jerusalem, Israeli passengers now get off the train and take the bus in a bid to avoid the hail of stones from Palestinian protesters that is becoming a daily occurrence.
Yoni, on his way to the Hebrew University, barely looks up from his book as he makes his way through the hotspot.
‘That is what the Palestinians want. They want us to live in fear,’ he says.
In west Jerusalem, in contrast to the darkest days of the second Palestinian intifada of 2000-2005, cafes, shops and restaurants carry on with business as usual.” Read more.
