Hamas calls to ‘slaughter’ Jews who visit Temple Mount
Verse of the Day
Luke 21:24 And they shall fall by the edge of the sword, and shall be led away captive into all nations: and Jerusalem shall be trodden down of the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled.
Once again the Temple Mount is front page news. It will continue to be so, right up to the Second Coming of Jesus Christ. I’ve posted great articles on a variety of issues that are critical to the hour in which we live. Make sure that you read the one about Hillary Clinton on killing babies right up to delivery, and the law in Mississippi about protecting people from homosexuals.
May the Holy God of Israel bless and protect you.
Luke 21:28 And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.
Jerusalem – Temple Mount
Hamas calls to ‘slaughter’ Jews who visit Temple Mount 04/05/16 This is the center of the bulls-eye of Bible prophecy. Things have been quiet for a while regarding the Temple Mount, but then an article like this pops up.
This is one of the major flashpoints for the all-out war in the Middle East, if not for WW3.
The Muslims can’t stand that Israel controls Jerusalem and the Jews are allowed on the Temple Mount.
“Hamas is continuing its calls for violence against Jews, with one official threatening on Monday to “slaughter” Jews who are “harming” the Al-Aqsa Mosque.
Faiza Al-Nashar, who heads Hamas’s women movement in Rafah, told the Hamas newspaper Palestine that “today’s generation waves his knife and his father’s old rifle and goes out to cut off the hands and slaughter the heads of those who attack the Al-Aqsa Mosque.”
Similar threats were made by the Deputy Chairman of the Palestinian parliament, senior Hamas member Ahmed Bahar, who participated in an event held in Rafah organized by the women’s movement of Hamas in support of the “Intifada” and in the memory of senior Hamas terrorists Ahmed Yassin and Abdel Aziz al-Rantissi, who were eliminated by Israel during the Second Intifada in the early 2000s.”
Israel and the Middle East War
ANTI-ZIONISM IS THE NEW ANTI-SEMITISM, SAYS BRITAIN’S EX-CHIEF RABBI 04/04/16 This is a very good article that takes a look how classic Jew-hating has now morphed into hating Israel.
“Anti-semitism is a virus that survives by mutating. In the Middle Ages, Jews were hated because of their religion. In the 19th and 20th centuries they were hated because of their race. Today they are hated because of their nation state, Israel. Anti-Zionism is the new anti-Semitism.
The legitimization has also changed. Throughout history, when people have sought to justify anti-Semitism, they have done so by recourse to the highest source of authority available within the culture. In the Middle Ages, it was religion. In post-Enlightenment Europe it was science. Today it is human rights. It is why Israel—the only fully functioning democracy in the Middle East with a free press and independent judiciary—is regularly accused of the five crimes against human rights: racism, apartheid, crimes against humanity, ethnic cleansing and attempted genocide. This is the blood libel of our time.
Anti-Semitism is a classic example of what anthropologist René Girard sees as the primal form of human violence: scapegoating. When bad things happen to a group, its members can ask two different questions: “What did we do wrong?” or “Who did this to us?” The entire fate of the group will depend on which it chooses.”
Syria: War and Madness 04/04/16 This article gives a good overall view of what happened in Syria.
As I read this what stood out in my mind was how Assad’s goal in life was to destroy Israel – and now look at Syria.
What Assad wanted to do to Israel has happened to Syria. This is not over, and the worst is yet to come because Syria will be totally destroyed. It will forever cease to be a nation.
“The cold numbers are the first thing that hit you. Figures telling of a human catastrophe on a scale hard to compute. Suffering on a level to which any rational response seems inadequate – 470,000 people killed, according to the latest estimates; 11.5 percent of the population injured; 45 percent of a country of 22 million made homeless; 4 million refugees and 6.36 million internally displaced persons. Life expectancy is down from 70.5 years in 2010 to an estimated 55.4 years in 2015. Welcome to the Syrian civil war.”
American Politics – Religious Rights
Mississippi governor signs law allowing service denial to gay people 04/05/16 Our religious rights supersede those of the delusional people who think that marriage is whatever one wants it to be.
This law stand firmly on the First Amendment to the Constitution which guarantees religious freedom.
First Amendment: Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.
“The measure’s stated intention is to protect those who believe that marriage should be between one man and one woman, that sexual relations should only take place inside such marriages, and that male and female genders are unchangeable.
“This bill merely reinforces the rights which currently exist to the exercise of religious freedom as stated in the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution,” the Republican governor wrote in a statement posted to his Twitter account.
The measure allows churches, religious charities and privately held businesses to decline services to people whose lifestyles violate their religious beliefs. Individual government employees may also opt out, although the measure says governments must still provide services.
“This bill does not limit any constitutionally protected rights or actions of any citizen of this state under federal or state laws,” Bryant said. “It does not attempt to challenge federal laws, even those which are in conflict with the Mississippi Constitution, as the Legislature recognizes the prominence of federal law in such limited circumstances.”
World War 3
North Korea can put nuclear warheads on mid-range missiles, official says 04/05/16 According to this report, North Korea can’t reach the US right now but this is their goal and it can’t be far off.
I have said for a long time that God is going to use NK as a “rod-of-iron” in judgment against America. All it takes is one nuke to hit the US mainland and America NEVER will be the same.
Remember, that Obama has set up Iran to do what North Korea has done with nukes.
“North Korea has the capability to mount a nuclear warhead on a medium-range missile that could strike targets in Russia, China, Japan and the Korean Peninsula, a South Korean official revealed for the first time Tuesday.
“We believe they have accomplished miniaturization of a nuclear warhead to mount it on a Rodong missile,” an official with knowledge of South Korea’s assessment of the North’s nuclear program, who spoke on condition of anonymity, told Reuters.
North Korean ruler Kim Jong Un said in March that his country had miniaturized nuclear warheads to mount on ballistic missiles, but the claim was never independently verified.
The official said there is no direct evidence that the North has actually mounted such a warhead on a ballistic missile and declined to elaborate on the assessment.”
Hard Left – Child Murder
Hillary: An Unborn Child on His or Her Due Date Has No Constitutional Rights 04/05/16 Is there any doubt that we have ISIS in our midst! We recoil in horror at what ISIS does in slaughtering the infidels, and then we legally slaughter babies in the womb just as ISIS kills.
The Hard Left are dangerous people because they can declare that we have no rights like the babies, and then act on it.
These are extremely dangerous people and they are in power. Always, always, always remember that they hate us as much as the Nazis hated the Jews.
“Tuesday on ABC’s “The View” Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton reiterated her claim from over the weekend that a child, on its due date, just before delivery has no constitutional rights.
Co-host Paula Faris asked, “I want to ask you about some comments that you made over the weekend on ‘Meet the Press,’ you said, quote, ‘The unborn person doesn’t have constitutional rights.’ My question is at what point does someone have constitutional rights, and are you saying that a child, on its due date, just hours before delivery still has no constitutional rights?”
Clinton said, “Under our law that is the case, Paula. I support Roe versus Wade because I think it is an important — an important statement about the importance of a woman making this most difficult decision with consultation by whom she chooses: her doctor, her faith, her family. And under the law and under certainly that decision, that is the way we structure it.”
China jitters could trigger global market bloodbath, IMF warns 04/04/16 This is a good article to keep you updated on what is happening with the world economy. Everything still is spiraling downward as the debt continues to increase with no end in sight.
The key is interest rates because when they start rising it will bring down many economies, starting with Japan.
“Highlighting last summer’s massive stock market sell-off after China devalued its currency, the IMF noted that Chinese growth had an “increasing” and “significant” impact on global equity prices.
“The impact of shocks to China’s fundamentals on global financial markets is expected to grow stronger and wider over time,” the Fund said in a pre-released chapter of its Financial Stability report.
“Clear and timely communication of its policy decisions, transparency about its policy goals, and strategies consistent with achieving them will, therefore, be essential to ensure against volatile market reactions, which may have broader repercussions.”
The IMF also urged policymakers to do more to rein in corporate debt, which it has previously said could see a wave of defaults as the US hikes interest rates.
“Fire sales” of assets by money managers could also amplify emerging market spillovers in a downturn, if mutual funds rushed to sell illiquid assets, the IMF warned.
Financial “spillbacks” triggered by policy actions in advanced economies such as tighter monetary policy in the US underscored “the importance of enhanced international macroeconomic and macroprudential policy co-operation”, the IMF said.”
Why use negative interest rates? 04/04/16 I posted this article to try and help you understand why banks are now using negative interest rates.
After reading it, I still don’t understand why and think that this is all smoke and mirrors.
Who trusts the banksters and gangsters (politicians)!
“So why do we have negative rates at all?
Some examples are central bank policies. In the eurozone, in Denmark, Sweden, Switzerland and Japan, central banks have decided to have a negative rate on commercial banks’ excess funds held on deposit at the central bank. In effect, private sector banks have to pay to park their money.
In the case of Sweden, the central bank has gone below zero on the rate it lends money to the banks, its main policy tool.
The aim in the eurozone is to stimulate economic growth and to raise inflation, which is also below zero and even further adrift of the European Central Bank’s target of below but close to 2%. In Sweden too, it is about raising inflation.
In Denmark and Switzerland the immediate objective has been to prevent the currency rising too much. The idea of lower and negative interest rates is to discourage investors from buying the local currency, which tends to push its value up.
These policy decisions are not the most surprising examples. They are the actions of central banks whose job is to keep inflation under control and to support economic growth and employment. If they judge that their economic policy objectives are best pursued by negative official interest rates, why not?
Betting on currencies
It gets slightly stranger when the lender is a private sector firm, which you would normally expect to try to maximise its profits.
In fact it is possible in some circumstances that a negative interest rate might be profitable, if you think currencies are going to move in your favour. Take the case of Switzerland, where, earlier this month, the government borrowed money for 10 years in the financial markets at an interest rate slightly below zero.”
