PM confirms Israel offered direct assistance to Iran and Iraq following earthquake; Red Cross in Iraq and Iran refuse assistance; Netanyahu: Our humanity is greater than their hatred. Israel continues to be a light unto the nations, Nov. 15, 2017.
Israel offered humanitarian aid and support following the earthquake that killed over 500 and injured close to 8,000 Saturday, Iran and Iraq refusing the assistance.
Israel, as with all global natural disasters, attempted to act as a first responder to Iran and Iraq crisis contacting the Red Cross in both countries, both states refusing any assistance from the Jewish State. Prime Minister Netanyahu offered direct assistance and supplies, with the IDF Homefront Command preparing medical and search and rescue teams…. read more
Israel was startled by the Egyptian president’s comment that the Palestinian reconciliation process he is brokering would lead to peace with Israel.
Abdel Fatteh El-Sisi put it this way in an interview on Sunday, Oct. 8: “The Egyptian moves aimed at helping the Palestinian brothers to start a new stage of unity of the Palestinian ranks would pave the way for a just peace between Palestine and Israel.” He defined his goal as being: “The establishment of an independent Palestinian state to meet the legitimate aspirations of the Palestinian people for a secure, stable and prosperous life.”
El-Sisi added no further details, but he said enough to finally rattle the Netanyahu government. The Palestinian reconciliation process was clearly intruding on terrain that properly belonged to negotiations with Israel. Jerusalem’s policy of standing aside from Cairo’s efforts to broker the internal Palestinian rift between |Hamas and Fatah had left Israel without a say in the process as it advanced. It was becoming clear that Cairo was no longer briefing Israel, despite its promises to do so, on the directions to which Egyptian intelligence officials were leading the Palestinian negotiations for burying the hatchet. (On Oct. 3, DEBKAfile warned that Israel would pay a price for standing aloof from the process.)… read more
Genesis 12:3 And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.
Wow, it appears that God is warning Iran of the destruction that awaits this nation. He used President Trump and now Prime Minister Netanyahu to warn ancient Persia of the destruction that is coming for trying to destroy Israel! Iran was warned before the entire world! The Lord is really merciful.
I would say based on what happened at the United Nations, God is ready to destroy Iran. The warning was issued, and of course, Iran is not going to pay any attention but will plunge forward to its judgment. Trump also warned North Korea before the entire world, so maybe the stage is set for judgment of these two Israel-hating nations that are working together in an attempt to destroy God’s covenant nation…. read more
At Tuesday’s address to the 72nd United Nations General Assembly at the U.N. headquarters in New York, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu cited the Bible various times as a source against “fake history” and the true reason behind Israel’s flourishing in the face of its enemies.
During his speech, Netanyahu had harsh words for the United Nations, known for its anti-Israel bias. Condemning the UNESCO’s July declaration of the Tomb of the Patriarchs as a Palestinian World Heritage site, he said, “That’s worse than fake news, that’s fake history.” Citing the Bible as evidence to history, Netanyahu added, “It’s true that Abraham, the father of both Ishmael and Isaac, is buried there, but so too are Isaac, Jacob, Sarah, Rebecca – Sarah is a Jewish name, by the way – and Leah, who just happen to be patriarchs and matriarchs of the Jewish people. You won’t read about that in the latest UNESCO report.
“But if you want to, you can read about that in a somewhat weightier publication,” he continued. “It’s called the Bible. I highly recommend it. I hear it even got 4 ½ out of 5 stars on Amazon. And it’s a great read. I read it every week.”… read more
Have you ever heard of UNESCO? Well this all got started when we began to read articles on how UNESCO fails to acknowledge Jewish ties to the Temple Mount. We wanted to know where they got the power to disconnect Jerusalem and the Temple Mount from Jewish cultural history. When we began reading about… read more

PM and Macron meet in Paris, participate in ceremony for 75th anniversary of French Jewish deportation to concentration camps; Netanyahu addressed US-Russia ceasefire, Temple Mount security; Macron focuses on two-state solution
Prime Minister Netanyahu met with French President Emmanuel Macron at the Élysée Palace in Paris on Sunday as part of his tour to France and Hungary this week.
Their meeting centered on bilateral relations, security and economic cooperation with both leaders addressing the press.<!–more–>
It may very well be that this week was the week that Israel and the US put to rest former president Barack Obama’s policies and positions on Israel and the Palestinians.
If so, the move was made despite the best efforts of Obama’s team to convince the Trump administration to maintain them.
The details of Obama’s policies and positions have been revealed in recent weeks in a series of articles published in Haaretz regarding Obama’s secretary of state John Kerry’s failed peacemaking efforts, which ended in 2014.
The articles reported segments of two drafts of a US framework for a final peace treaty between the PLO and Israel. The drafts were created in February and March 2014.
The article series is predicated on the assumption that Kerry and his team were on the precipice of a historic breakthrough between PLO chief Mahmoud Abbas and Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu. But a close reading of the documents shows that the opposite was the case.
There are two reasons that Kerry had no prospects for reaching a deal.
First, he, Obama and their advisers were too hostile to Israel and its citizens to ever convince Netanyahu that Israel’s interests would be secured…. read more
