  • Why Jerusalem Matters

    05/16/2018 4:50:00 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 28 replies ^ | May 16, 2018 | Ben Shapiro
    This week, the Trump administration inaugurated the new American embassy in Jerusalem. The celebration in Israel was palpable; the embassy move came amidst the national celebration of the 70th anniversary of the creation of the state. The streets filled with Jews of all sorts, cheering and dancing. Meanwhile, on the Gaza border, Hamas broadened its monthlong campaign to break down the Israel border, staging border "protests" attended by thousands -- including terrorists who have used the supposed protests as a staging point for violent attacks on Israeli troops and territory. Palestinian terrorists have caused mass chaos, throwing Molotov cocktails at...

    There is a war coming. A war for your minds. A war for your beliefs. A war in the Middle East. And a war in the Church. John explains with an in-depth look at the false teaching of Andy Stanley who is encouraging believers to "disconnect" the Old Testament from the New in the spirit of "unity." Yet Scripture is replete with warnings against exactly this, as well as the false teachers who would rise to prominence in the end times. He ends the message with a look at the events in Israel this week and next which should have...

    Former Sen. Joseph Lieberman (I-CT) discussed the Iran nuclear agreement on Thursday’s Breitbart News Daily, stating that President Donald Trump’s announcement on Tuesday that the United States is pulling out of the deal “took guts.” “I actually think it’s a great thing,” Lieberman told Breitbart Editor-in-chief Alex Marlow. “I think the president made the correct decision, and, frankly, it’s a courageous decision.” Lieberman, who now is on the advisory board at the Gatestone Institute and chairman of United Against Nuclear Iran, said former President Barack Obama “basically gave all our leverage away” and only stalled–rather than stopped–Iran’s nuclear weapons program....

    As usual, John has too many slides and too much info to share, but he gives it another valiant effort to bring us up to date on what in the world is going on. In summary, we are living in "The Age of Insecurity" where many moving parts, which appear to be unrelated, are actually interconnected and working behind the scenes to set the stage for the finale. Yet even during this apparent worldwide peril, God's spirit is moving in amazing ways that John will share at the end of this update. John does not trust the suddenly popular leader...

    Direct conflict between Israeli and Iranian forces is increasingly likely in Syria as Tehran pursues a permanent military presence there, US Secretary of Defense James Mattis warned on Thursday. Addressing a congressional panel before hosting his Israeli counterpart, Avigdor Liberman, at the Pentagon, Mattis said it was “very likely” from his perspective, “because Iran continues to do its proxy work there through Hezbollah.” Receiving Liberman, Mattis told reporters that he saw no reason for Iran to ship advanced missiles to Hezbollah through Syria except to threaten Israel. “I can see how it might start, but I am not sure when...

    A Desert Rat's captivating photo album charting the iconic army unit's epic journey from the North African desert to Germany in the Second World War is being auctioned off. Sergeant Ronald Jenner, of the 7th Armoured Division, fought in North Africa, the Middle East, Italy, France, Holland, Belgium and Germany. His armoured car was one of the first to enter Tripoli during the North African campaign when the city was captured by the Allies in January 1943.

    70 years ago this week, Israel regained her statehood. And from that moment, the plot to destroy her has been in full motion on multiple fronts. Likewise, here in America, explosive charges have been set under the core pillars of our Christian beliefs. From undermining marriage, to socializing education, from banning First Amendment free speech if it doesn't agree with the PC rhetoric, to removing to enumerated rights found in the 2nd Amendment intended to protect the rights of the First, the lot has been cast for the total destruction of society as we know it, in order to reunite...

    The dominant narrative of modern Middle East history emphasizes European colonization and accepts as a truism that the former colonial powers prioritized the protection of their material interests—in oil, above all—above the dignity and self-determination of the region’s inhabitants. --Thus did botched decolonization result in endless instability...Thus did the region become a breeding ground for radicalism, intensified by Cold War rivalry between the superpowers, who replaced the European colonizers as the region’s meddling overlords...Then came Mikhail Gorbachev—a Westernizing reformer. At last, the Cold War was over. A new world order was at hand. What if this conventional wisdom is nonsense?...

    The highest-ranking intelligence officer ever to defect from the Eastern Bloc says the Soviet Union orchestrated an anti-American and anti-Israeli propaganda campaign in the Middle East four decades ago -- and the effects of the effort still reverberate. The Middle East was a key battlefield in the Cold War, and Moscow spent considerable resources courting Arab states in the region and vocally backing the Palestinian cause. Humiliated by the defeat of the Soviet-backed Arab states in their 1967 war against Israel, Yuri Andropov devised the operation to discredit the Jewish state and present Zionism as "Nazi-style racism" while at the...

    A former Minneapolis FBI agent has been charged after allegedly leaking secret documents to a national news reporter, according to federal criminal charges filed in Minnesota this week. The charges, filed by prosecutors for the Justice Department’s National Security Division, are the first to come in Minnesota since Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced a broad crackdown on government leaks last year. A two-page felony information, a charging document that typically signals an imminent guilty plea, outlines two counts filed against Terry J. Albury of unlawfully disclosing and retaining national defense information. Albury is accused of sharing a document on assessing...

    For his return after a 3 week whirlwind tour in California where a lot of things were going on, John's message this week concentrates mostly on Israel, Syria and the Middle East where "A Lot is Going On." From Israel finally admitting that they took out the Syrian nuclear reactor over 10 years ago, to the rapid progression of Turkey into an enemy of Israel and NATO, John looks at the latest issues that are coming to the forefront of this week's prophetic outlook. Oh, yeah..and he briefly mentions the new "Youth Movement" headed up by the foul-mouthed David Hogg,...

    Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman said Thursday it would be ‘‘really insane’’ for him to trade classified information with presidential son-in-law and White House adviser Jared Kushner, or try to use Kushner to promote Saudi aims within the Trump administration. Having that kind of relationship ‘‘will not help us’’ and does not exist, he said. Speaking in a meeting with Washington Post editors and reporters, Mohammed denied U.S. media reports that he had claimed Kushner was ‘‘in his pocket,’’ or that he had sought or received a green light from Kushner, when the two met in Riyadh in October,...

    The Arab League Secretary-General Ahmed Aboul-Gheit urged Guatemala to cancel its decision to move its embassy to Jerusalem on Thursday, according to the official Palestinian Authority news site Wafa. In an urgent letter to Guatemalan President Jimmy Morales, Aboul-Gheit expressed his dissatisfaction with the president's decision to relocate its embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, Spokesman for the Secretary-General Mahmoud Afifi said in a statement. Guatemala was one of a handful of countries that backed a UN vote on US President Donald Trump's December 6 recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital. Last Sunday, President Morales confirmed at AIPAC...
