Israel is on its own in war against terrorism
Jewish World Review ^ | 7/13/2012 | Diana West

Posted on 07/13/2012 7:57:41 AM PDT by Former Fetus

The Washington Free Beacon reported this week on the continuing omission of Israel from a U.S.-sponsored organization called the Global Counterterrorism Forum (GCTF). At a recent forum meeting in Spain, Maria Otero, U.S. undersecretary of state for civilian security, democracy and human rights, delivered a speech titled "Victims of Terrorism," but, in her roll call of victims, she didn't mention Israel. The conference at which she spoke was described as a "high-level conference on the victims of terrorism," but Israel wasn't a participant.

It bears repeating because it is so fantastic: At an international conference devoted to victims of terrorism, the world's leading victim or, better, leading target of terrorism -- Israel -- was nowhere in sight, or mind.

Welcome to the GCTF -- U.S. counterterrorism's new "normal." This 30-member organization got its official start last September as a "major initiative" of the Obama administration when Secretary of State Hillary Clinton announced its launch in New York.

It was quite an occasion; Hillary curled her hair. Seated next to her Turkish co-chairman, ensconced amid ministers from Algeria, Egypt, Indonesia, Jordan, Morocco, Pakistan, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and 18 other miscellaneous member-states plus the European Union, she then said the magic words: "From London to Lahore, from Madrid to Mumbai, from Kabul to Kampala, it's innocent civilians who have been targeted ..."

Jerusalem, Tel Aviv, Ashkelon? Poof, gone. And that's the point

Just as prophesied:

http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Zechariah%2014:2-3&version=KJV

Zechariah 14:2-3

King James Version (KJV)

2 For I will gather all nations against Jerusalem to battle; and the city shall be taken, and the houses rifled, and the women ravished; and half of the city shall go forth into captivity, and the residue of the people shall not be cut off from the city.

3 Then shall the Lord go forth, and fight against those nations, as when he fought in the day of battle.

http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Isaiah+63:5&version=KJV

Isaiah 63:5

King James Version (KJV)

5 And I looked, and there was none to help;
and I wondered that there was none to uphold:
therefore mine own arm brought salvation unto me;
and my fury, it upheld me.

That’s the Great Tribulation and the Second Coming at the Battle of Armageddon, above, for those wondering.

It could just as easily be argued those prophecies were fullfilled by the Babylonian conquest of Israel in the 5th Century BC.

Just amazing.

I wonder if there are still active members of the Flat Earth Society?

No it can’t if you put it in the context of Micah 2, Zech 12 and 14 and Isaiah 63.

Good article, Former Fetus, thanks for posting.

The prophecies concerning the return of Christ are happening so fast now it's impossible to keep up.

The good news for those who know Christ as Savior is that Jesus told us that when we see all these things begin to happen, we need to look up because our redemption is getting close.

We're going home soon!

So Sunday, July 29 (over there?) is the 9th of Av this year?

I gotta admit I do wonder about that each year (though I’m not gonna go date-setting or such).

When the entire meaning of the Word of God has been changed to something alien and unrecognizable by allegorization and spiritualization, then none of Scripture can be reconciled and put into context with other Scripture even though God wrote the Bible to perfectly fit together and interpret itself.

Once you get fallen man out of the business of correcting the Bible and rewriting it to make it more acceptable to unredeemed man, and once you know Christ as Savior, everything in Scripture falls perfectly into place.

So you are absolutely correct. God is undeniably clear on the fact that the entire world will abandon Israel and come against her in the last days, and that is exactly what is happening.

I don't know when it is this year.

I'll wait to hear from those who do know.

Are there any reasons you are expecting the Rapture on Tishah B’Av?

No I’m not saying that at all. Not even hinting at that.

I’m saying I don’t set dates for anything.

I’m just saying the 9th of Av has a bit of history.

The 9th of Av just kinda gets my attention, what with all the Israel-haters in the world.

To the Arab world, many non-Muslim Euros, and some here in the US, even in government, killing Jews in Israel isn't really terrorism.

Yes it starts on Israels 28 of July at their sundown.
There is roughly 7 hours time difference between Jerusalem and the east coast United States.
