- JNW PRAYING THE WORD FOR ISRAEL
Shalom from Jerusalem
- Israel is teetering on the brink of war, a war which when
(not if) it breaks out has the potential to be the most devastating
this reborn nation has had to face, fight and win, in 60 years
of continuous conflict.
- As we head into the fall, rumors are flying thick and fast
in the Middle East, and everyone is wondering just where the
second-hand stands on the countdown to conflagration. The Bible
tells us that ingathered Israel will fight wars until the Lord
Himself will descend with a shout and go forth to fight against
the nations that come against Jerusalem. It tells us, too, that
Israel will win every battle until that great and final war to
end all wars. Watchmen posted on the walls of this city can hear,
see and feel the mounting waves of prejudice and hatred that
threaten to engulf the Jewish people in their God-given land.
- We know Israel will not be destroyed, but we can see, too,
that more pain and suffering threaten this nation as it fights
to survive. We need to pray, but how? How can we pray? What should

- ANALYST SAYS OLMERT PUT MILITARY OPTION ON PUTIN'S TABLE
- JNEWWIRE - By Stan Goodenough - October 19, 2007
- As war words swirled around the Middle East this week, a
respected analyst for the Israeli daily The Jerusalem Post wrote
Friday that in his meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin
Thursday Prime Minister Ehud Olmert had put the military option
against Iran on the table.
- Whereas Olmert had, at a meeting with Putin a year ago, alluded
at the possibility of such an option, the Israeli this week let
it be known that it exists.
- Wrote Keinon: "Olmert ... went [to Moscow this time]
to underscore Israel's sense of urgency in taking action now."
- According to an official in Olmert's entourage, the two leaders
extensively discussed the Iranian nuclear issue in a three-hour
meeting that was almost entirely held in private.
- Keinon recalled Olmert's words to Putin on October 18, 2006
when the Israeli told the KGB officer made president Iran had
better reverse its nuclear course or "something will happen
to them that they don't want."

- PUTIN TELLS ISRAEL TO TAKE A HIKE
- JNEWSWIRE - By Stan Goodenough - October 19, 2007 - Israeli
Prime Minister Ehud Olmert's personally-delivered plea Thursday
for Russian President Vladimir Putin to support international
sanctions against a nuclear-bomb-chasing Iran fell on deaf ears.
Just hours after the two leaders emerged from a three-hour meeting
in the Kremlin and Olmert flew home, Putin revealed he had been
unmoved by the visit, declaring he remained opposed to economically
strong-arming Tehran into changing course.
- He earlier let Olmert know Russia also rejected a military
solution to the standoff, saying he preferred to engage the Iranians
in "constructive dialogue."
- The Russian's intransigence on Iran is understood to be in
line with his plans to re-establish his country's Soviet-era
influence over the Middle East. Western analysts say Putin has
megalomanic ambitions; that he is maneuvering in readiness to
declare himself Czar of a Russia allied with a number of internationally-
blacklisted states, including North Korea, Iran and Syria. Olmert's
suddenly announced decision to pay a one-day visit to Moscow
came a day after Putin made a state visit to Tehran, during which
the Russian let it be known he had seen no evidence the mullahs
were pursuing nuclear weapons.
- But Putins assertion that the world needed to dialogue
with Iran to stop it from going down the wrong nuclear road gave
the lie to that statement. Not all Israel's Knesset members were
pleased with their prime minister. The Likud's Silvan Shalom
said Friday morning the visit had humiliated Israel. Speaking
on Israel Radio, Shalom said Olmert had run in a panic to Putin
the day after his return from Iran, thereby messaging Russia
that the Jewish state wanted to maintain close ties in spite
of Moscow's position on Iran.

- U.N. HUMAN RIGHTS ENVOY RECOMMENDS U.N. QUIT THE QUARTET
by Hana Levi Julian - (IsraelNN.com) John Dugard, employed as
an independent expert (special rapporteur) to the United Nations
Human Rights Commission, has called on the U.N. to quit the Quartet
of Mideast peace brokers if the international body does not address
alleged human rights violations by Israel.
- In my most recent report to the General Assembly, which
I will present later this month, I will suggest that the Secretary-General
withdraw the U.N. from the Quartet, if the Quartet fails to have
regard to the human rights situation in the Palestinian Territories,
- Dugard said in an interview with the British Broadcasting
Corporation (BBC) Monday that the Quartet, which also includes
Russia, the United States and the European Union, is heavily
influenced by the U.S., weakening the international groups
- Every time I visit, the situation seems to have worsened,
he said. This time, I was very struck by the sense of hopelessness
among the Palestinian people. That hopelessness was also
noted in a report by the Economist magazine, albeit attributed
to different causes.
- Dugard added that the U.N. does itself little good
by remaining in the Quartet, due to human rights violations by
Israel in Judea, Samaria and Gaza.
- Israels security checkpoints, which have enabled the
IDF to prevent dozens of intended terrorist attacks, are used
as a method of collective punishment against the Arab population,
he said, to make the life of Palestinians as miserable
- Yitzchak Levanon, Israel's Ambassador to the U.N. in Geneva,
says that Dugard and the entire U.N. Human Rights Council in
Geneva are obsessed with the desire to continue with [its]
unending odyssey of bashing a single U.N. member state.
- At a meeting in Geneva last month, Ambassador Levanon also
blasted a decision to hold a special debate on Israel during
each session of the council, calling it a flagrant violation
of the fundamental principles of equality. Continued: http://www.israelnationalnews.com/News/News.aspx/123929
- SURRENDERING JERUSALEM'S OLD CITY
- This following article from Arutz-7 news clearly illustrates
the final decisions that have been made behind closed doors.
Regardless of the fact that the majority of Israelis oppose the
idea or thought of surrendering Jerusalem's Old City and allowing
as the capital of a Palestinian terror state. The government
of Israel in high gear preparing for the surrender of Israel's
God given land to hear sworn enemies. Shortly after George W.
Bush announced and introduced to the world what is now called
"The Road Map", the Lord spoke to me and said President
Bush is just like Balaam. The word Balaam literally means foreigner,
and this man has been used of satan to introduce a plan that
is quite foreign and contrary to God's word.
This is the second most serious issue facing Israel today.
- Every day hundreds of millions of dollars are being spent
on building roads and infrastructure in Judea and Samaria on
land that is scheduled to be given to our sworn enemies. As Israeli
citizens work hard and pay taxes, literally billions of dollars
are being spent on roads and fences and infrastructure for the
future benefit of our sworn enemies. In 1999 the Lord spoke a
word to me ("I AM ABOUT TO TEAR ISRAEL") that I have
been watching come to pass.
- He spoke saying that He would tear the land and the people
of Israel. Why? So that He may separate those who are His from
those who oppose Him. I ask that those of you who are reading
this would join me and fall upon the rock (Yeshua) in brokenness
and intercession for Israel and her neighbours, for we surely
stand on the threshold of a great threshing. In the book of Numbers
chapter 16 there is a story which demonstrates many things. The
one that stands out most to me is verse 5, "And when Moses
heard it, he fell upon his face:". We are again in a season
when Jews are facing off against other Jews. And the primary
division is between those who believe and trust in the word of
God and those who reject the word of God as a standard. http://www.israelnationalnews.com/
- LIKUD OFFICIAL INFERS TEMPLE NOT JEWISH HOLY PLACE
- Jerusalem News Wire - By Stan Goodenough - October 17, 2007
- The head of the Likud Party's foreign relations department
gave a massive boost to the claims of Islam - Israel's most implacable
enemy - Tuesday when he inferred that Jerusalem's Temple Mount
was not sacred to the Jewish people.
- The Temple Mount is the Jewish people's holiest site. Arab
and other Muslim leaders and clerics, who assert that the hill
is Islam's third holiest site, have long and fiercely maintained
that the Jews have no historical connection or claim to the outcrop
the Bible calls God's "holy hill."
- While secular Jews often appear content to limit their "right"
to the Western Wall, Israelis who have the fear of the Lord and
who know that their nation's First and Second Temples were built
on top of the mount will not agree to relinquishing it to the
followers of another god. Zalman Shoval, a former ambassador
to the United States, and traditionally a right thinker on Israeli
security issues, told a meeting of the Foreign Press Association
that the Likud - which is led by former Prime Minister Binyamin
Netanyahu - could allow an Arab or Muslim country to administer
the site for the sake of securing peace for Israel.
- "It is not in Israel's interest to be in any way in
charge of the holy places other than those of the Jewish faith,"
the secular Shoval said, adding he believed there were "ways
to adopt formulae to this end."
- Using politico-speech (universally known as the language
of compromise) Shoval first insisted that "the question
of Israel's sovereignty in Jerusalem, and first and foremost
the Temple Mount, is not negotiable."
- But he then reminded his audience that "actually there
have been plans for a long time" to find a way around this
"immovable" political reality. "Arab and Muslim
countries, Jordan for instance, could play a leading role,"
and it was even possible that the Palestinian Authority could
"run" the Temple Mount if there were real peace. Continued:
- VETERAN US EVANGELICAL WARNS AGAINST DIVIDING JERUSALEM
- Jerusalem News Wire - By Stan Goodenough - October 17, 2007
- Woe betide the United States if the Bush administration pushes
Israel into dividing Jerusalem with the Palestinian Arabs. So
warned veteran Christian broadcaster Pat Robertson Monday following
a flurry of reports that Israeli officials appear increasingly
willing to compromise on the sovereignty of what previous governments
always described as the "eternal and indivisible capital"
of the Jewish people. News of the erosion in the official Israeli
position on the city "coincided" with a visit to the
region this week of US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice.
- Rice - who is believed to be desperately seeking a breakthrough
in the "peace process" before the US enters election
year in a few weeks' time - has been pushing Israel hard to make
more concessions in the hope the "Palestinians" will
be encouraged to "play ball." While the Bush administration
has sought to portray itself as going along with Israeli decisions
rather than imposing its will on the Jewish state, the mask has
slipped on occasion - usually when the US feels that time is
- In this way, while the 2005 uprooting of 10,000 Jews from
their Gaza Strip homes was described by US officials as an Israeli
decision, it in fact came about as a direct result of unrelenting
American pressure on Israel to give in to Arab demands for Jewish
lands. To date, the past three decades of US diplomacy in the
Middle East has resulted in the erosion of Israel's security
and the strengthening of Israel's enemies.
- Many Bible-believers in the United States as well as around
the world are persuaded from Scripture that any nation that works
towards the dismemberment of the national homeland of the Jewish
people will come under divine judgment. Continued: http://www.jnewswire.com/article/2192
- RICE IN BETHLEHEM: 'PRINCE OF PEACE STILL WITH US'
- Jerusalem News Wire - By Stan Goodenough - October 17, 2007
- US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice apparently believes
she has God's blessing to push Israel into giving up land for
promises of peace from the "Palestinians." Wednesday,
the fourth day of her visit to the Middle East where she is trying
to cobble together a US-hosted peace conference between Israel
and the Palestinian Arabs next month, Rice visited the PA-controlled
town of Bethlehem and stopped at the Church of the Nativity.
- One of the oldest church structures in the region, the Church
of the Nativity is administered by Greek Orthodox, Roman Catholic,
and Armenian Apostolic authorities as a traditional site of the
birth of Jesus Christ. Christmas visitors to the once-Christian
but today almost wholly Muslim town have in recent years
seen Manger Square festooned by banners of the late arch-terrorist
Yasser Arafat posters describing Jesus as "the first freedom
fighter." "Being here, at the birthplace of my Lord
and Savior, Jesus Christ, has been a very special and moving
experience," Rice said afterwards. "The Prince of Peace
is still with us," she was also quoted as saying. Rice,
the daughter and granddaughter of Presbyterian ministers, describes
herself as "deeply religious." Continued: http://www.jnewswire.com/article/2189
ON WHOSE SIDE WILL YOU STAND ?
Here are just two verses that show us that at times past the
Lord has called for a separation unto Himself, and how the ultimate
reward for those who chose Him is to have the grand honour "to
stand before the LORD to minister unto him, and to bless in his
Then Moses stood in the gate of the camp, and said, Who is on
the LORDS side? let him come unto me. And all the sons
of Levi gathered themselves together unto him. Exodus 32:26
- At that time the LORD separated the tribe of Levi, to bear
the ark of the covenant of the LORD, to stand before the LORD
to minister unto him, and to bless in his name, unto this day.
- I ask that in this time of coming threshing and through the
days that follow. That you fall on the Rock and in prayer do
as Moses did, "And when Moses heard it, he fell upon his
face". I know that the Lord will hear and answer the prayer
of those He has chosen. (Email)

- WORD FROM YERUSHALAM
Kaddish in France - The following commentary was given by Scott
Simon in NPR radio,
Saturday morning August 11, 2007: - "There used to be a
joke in Paris, what is the difference between the chief rabbi
in France and the Cardinal of Paris? The Cardinal speaks Yiddish!
Jean Marie Cardinal Lustiger was buried yesterday; he died this
week of cancer. He was born almost 81 years ago to Polish parents
who ran a dress shop in Paris. When the German army marched in
his parents sent him and his sister into hiding with a Catholic
family in Orleans. Their mother was captured and sent to Auschwitz.
In 1999 as Cardinal of Paris, Jean Marie Lustiger took part in
reading of the names of France's day of remembrance of Jews who
had been deported and murdered. He came to the name Gesele Lustiger,
paused, teared and said, my mama. The effect in France during
a time of revived anti-Semitism was electric.
- He was just 13 and in hiding when he converted to Catholicism,
not to escape the Nazis he always said, because no Jew could
escape by conversion, and not of trauma, he said. Among his most
controversial observations, I was born Jewish and so I remain,
even if that is unacceptable for many. For me the vocation of
Israel is bringing light to the goyem. That is my hope and I
believe that Christianity is the means for achieving it. There
were a great number of rabbi's who consider his conversion a
betrayal. Especially after so many European Jews had so narrowly
escaped extinction. Cardinal Lustiger replied, to say that I
am no longer a Jew is like denying my father and mother, my grandfathers
and grandmothers. I am as Jewish as all other members of my family
that were butchered in Auschwitz and other camps.
- He confessed to a biographer that he had a spiritual crisis
in the 1970's provoked by persistent anti-Semitism in France.
He studied Hebrew, and considered emigrating. He said I thought
that I had finished what I had to do here, he explained and I
might find new meaning in Israel. But just at that time the pope
appointed him bishop of Orleans. He found purpose he said in
the plight of immigrant workers. Then he was elevated to Cardinal.
- The Archbishop of Paris. Jean Marie Lustiger was close to
the Pope. They shared a doctrinal conservatism. He also battled
bigotry and totalitarianism. For years Cardinal Lustiger's name
was among those who was considered to succeed John Paul. Without
putting himself forth, the Cardinal joked that few things would
bedevil bigots more than a Jewish Pope. They don't like to admit
it he said, but what Christians believe, they got - through Jews.
The funeral for Cardinal Lustiger began at Notre Dame Cathedral
yesterday (August 10/07), with the chanting of Kaddish, the Jewish
prayer for the dead." Sometimes there are profound inconsistencies

- I AM ABOUT TO TEAR ISRAEL GEOGRAPHICALLY AND NATIONALLY
- On August 13 1999 Simantov Allalouf
(my 23rd wedding anniversary), Linda and I went up to the Galilee
to a nice quite place over looking the Sea of Galilee, just to
celebrate God's goodness in our lives, and our marriage. It was
pretty much an uneventful time except for the word the Lord spoke
- On the way up to the Galilee we went up to the top of Mt.
Tabor, while we were up on this high mountain I so clearly felt
the Lord say I want to give you a sign. So as we stood in prayer
and silence with such an awesome view of the valley below I looked
to see what the sign might be. But even as I looked at the many
people up riding the winds on special parachutes, I did not sense
anything in the spirit. We felt such a peace, it was incredible.
But I did not sense any of this to be the sign, and we ultimately
left knowing that our time on Mt. Tabor (Har Tavor in Hebrew)
- When we finally got to our destination on the mountain over
looking the Sea of Galilee, and moved into our room. We went
out to sit and have a coffee, and just enjoy the peace and quite,
with again an awesome view. While just relaxing and looking out,
an Israeli flag on the property caught my eye, as it was blowing
in the wind. We soon went down to have a bite to eat and stroll
the town centre, after which we went back to the Hostel we were
staying at. As we sat again looking out at the view, my eye again
was caught by the Israeli flag. But this time when I saw the
flag it was torn on top and at the bottom, and I immediately
knew this was the sign the Lord was telling me about. The top
of the flag was torn right along the blue line about 30% of the
way and the bottom also along the blue line was torn about 15%,
and I began to understand the sign. I feel the Lord was saying
I am about to tear Israel geographically and nationally I will
tear my people Israel. And immediately I said Lord why, again
shall we suffer the loss of our land and the pain of your dealing
with us your people. And His answer was short and direct, He
answered by these verses of scripture.
- Hosea 6:1,3 "Come let us return to the Lord, He has
TORN us to pieces but he will heal us, he has injured us but
he will bind up our wounds. 3) Let us acknowledge the Lord; let
us press on to acknowledge him. As surely as the sun rises, he
will appear; he will come to us like the winter rains, like the
spring rains that water the earth." I do not know how or
when this will happen, but the part I'm praying for and waiting
for is, "As surely as the sun rises, he will appear",
and the Lord knows we need rain both in the natural and spirit.
We are in the midst of a drought of both kinds of rain. Lord
come, we long for your appearing ! Email by Simantov Allalouf
- OLMERT GAVE PERMISSION FOR MUSLIMS TO DIG ON THE MOUNT!
- Prime Minister Ehud Olmert is at it again- undermining the
very foundations of the Holy Land! This time he has granted the
Muslim custodians of the Temple Mount permission to dig unsupervised
on the sacred site, and at night no less, where bulldozers dont
discriminate dirt from a precious antiquity! Ancient articles
proving that Jews were on the Mount are dug up and discarded
by the Muslims. Israeli archeologists know that the Muslims will
no doubt dispose of such sacred treasures as they continue to
deny the historical reality of Israels history.
- The last time the Waqf (Islamic clerics and custodians of
the Mosque of Omar and the al-Aksa Mosque) conducted an unsupervised
excavation on the Temple Mount in 1997, the Muslim custodians
ultimately were caught by Israeli authorities disposing of truckloads
of Mount dirt that contained Jewish Temple artifacts from both
the first and the second temple periods. As I have mentioned
in previous issues the the O.S., Palestinian leaders routinely
deny well-documented Jewish ties to the Temple Mount, the holiest
site in Judaism.
- The Muslims gained permission from Olmerts government
by saying they needed to dig to install new electrical and telephone
lines inside of their al-Aksa Mosque. The government of Jordan
helped convince Olmert by petitioning on behalf of the Waqf.
The Waqf also began digging a massive tunnel that snakes from
the Al Aqsa Mosque to the nearby Dome of the Rock, bringing in
heavy equipment for the work. There is no Israeli archaeological
supervision of all this digging. Which means anything of value
can be looted or thrown away. The Temple Mount is already in
danger of collapse from the numerous porous ancient tunnels under
the surface. Perhaps the Muslims will succeed in bringing down
their own Mosques!
- In an interesting footnote, Waqf official and chief Palestinian
Justice Taysir Tamimi claimed the Jewish Temples "never
existed." The Palestinian cleric denied the validity of
dozens of digs verified by experts worldwide revealing Jewish
artifacts from the First and Second Temples, tunnels that snake
under the Temple Mount and over 100 ritual immersion pools believed
to have been used by Jewish priests to cleanse themselves before
services. Asked about the Western Wall, Tamimi said the wall
where merely a place where Muhammad tied up his horse and it
was always part of the Al Aqsa Mosque, even though the Wall predates
the mosque by more than 1,000 years! We should remember the history
of the Temple Mount: Top of Form
- The First Jewish Temple was built by King Solomon in the
10th century B.C. It was destroyed by the Babylonians in 586
B.C. The Second Temple was rebuilt in 515 B.C. after Jerusalem
was freed from Babylonian captivity. That temple was destroyed
by the Roman Empire in A.D. 70. Each temple stood for a period
of about four centuries. The Jewish Temple was the center of
Jewish life and worship. The Holy of Holies, (the
place where Gods presence dwelt) and the Ark of the Covenant
were in the Temple. Without the Temple on the Mount, Jews cannot
offer sacrifices. Today the Muslim Al Aqsa Mosque occupies this
sacred site. The Al Aqsa Mosque was built around 709 A. D. and
serves as a shrine near another shrine, the Dome of the Rock.
Jerusalem is not mentioned in the Koran (Quran) though Muslims
insist Jerusalem is their third holiest site after Mecca and

- VISITING IRAN, PUTIN HAS WARNING FOR U.S.
Russian Leader Meets Ahmadinejad; Both Warn West To Stay Out
Of Regional Affairs
TEHRAN, Iran, Oct. 16, 2007 - (CBS/AP) Russian leader Vladimir
Putin met his Iranian counterpart Tuesday and implicitly warned
the U.S. not to use a former Soviet republic to stage an attack
on Iran. He also said nations shouldn't pursue oil pipeline projects
in the area if they weren't backed by regional powers. And while
Putin delivered smiling support to Iranian President Mahmoud
Ahmadinejad, he kept the presidents nuclear ambitions at
arm's length, reports CBS News correspondent Richard Roth.
- At a summit of the five nations that border the inland Caspian
Sea, Putin said none of the nations' territory should be used
by any outside countries for use of military force against any
nation in the region. It was a clear reference to long-standing
rumors that the U.S. was planning to use Azerbaijan, a former
Soviet republic, as a staging ground for any possible military
action against Iran. "We are saying that no Caspian nation
should offer its territory to third powers for use of force or
military aggression against any Caspian state," Putin said.
- Ahmadinejad also underlined the need to keep outsiders away
from the Caspian. "All Caspian nations agree on the main
issue - that all aspects related to this sea must be settled
exclusively by littoral nations," he said. "The Caspian
Sea is an inland sea and it only belongs to the Caspian states,
therefore only they are entitled to have their ships and military
forces here." Putin, whose trip to Tehran is the first by
a Kremlin leader since World War II, warned that energy pipeline
projects crossing the Caspian could only be implemented if all
five nations that border the Caspian support them. Putin did
not name any specific country, but his statement underlined Moscow's
strong opposition to U.S.-backed efforts to build pipelines to
deliver hydrocarbons to the West bypassing Russia. "Projects
that may inflict serious environmental damage to the region cannot
be implemented without prior discussion by all five Caspian nations,"

- MUSLIMS CAUGHT RED-HANDED DESTROYING TEMPLE ARTIFACTS
- FROM WND'S JERUSALEM BUREAU - September 2, 2007 - Muslims
caught red-handed destroying Temple artifacts Archaeologists
kept out as WND obtains photo of pulverized antiquities at Judaism's
holiest site. Posted: September 2, 2007 - By Aaron Klein - WorldNetDaily.com
- JERUSALEM Islamic authorities using heavy machinery
to dig on the Temple Mount Judaism's holiest site
have been caught red-handed destroying Temple-era antiquities
and what's believed to be a section of an outer wall of the Second
Jewish Temple. WND today obtained a photograph of a massive trench
the Waqf, the Muslim custodians of the Temple Mount, have been
blasting around the periphery of the holy site purportedly to
replace 40-year-old electrical cables for mosques on the Mount.
The Waqf has steadfastly denied they found or destroyed any Jewish
antiquities during their dig. Possible carved stone from Jewish
Temple-era antiquity exposed by digging at Temple Mount in Jerusalem
- In view in the picture,
which was obtained in conjunction with Israel's Temple Institute,
are concrete slabs broken by Waqf bulldozers and what appears
to be a chopped up carved stone from Jewish Temple-era antiquity.
Eilat Mazar, considered one of the most prominent Temple Mount
archaeologists, analyzed the photo and told WND the damaged stone
displays elements of the second Temple era and might be part
of a Jewish Temple wall Israeli archeologists charge the Waqf
found and has been attempting to destroy. If authenticated, the
wall would be one of the most important Temple Mount archaeological
discoveries in recent history.
- "It looks like Second Temple antiquity and could very
well be part of a Second Temple courtyard wall," Mazer said.
She said in order to certify the stone in the photo, she would
need to personally inspect it.
- But Israel is blocking leading archaeologists from surveying
massive damage Islamic authorities are accused of causing to
what may be the outer wall of the Second Jewish Temple. Last
month, the Waqf, the Muslim custodians of the Temple Mount, were
given permission by Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert to use
bulldozers and other heavy equipment to dig a large trench they
say is necessary to replace electrical cables. The dig is being
protected by the Israeli police and is supposed to be supervised
by the Israeli government's Antiquities Authority. Archeologists
say Islamic custodians of Temple Mount are destroying what could
be part of a wall from the Second Jewish Temple (Courtesty TempleInstitute.org)
(photo attached) Earlier this month, after bulldozers pulverized
a trench 1,300 feet long and five feet deep, the Muslim diggers
came across a wall Israeli archaeologists believe may be remains
of an area of the Second Jewish Temple known as the woman's courtyard.
- The Antiquities Authority
has not halted the dig and has not inspected the site. The Waqf
has continued using bulldozers to blast away at the trench containing
the wall. The Antiquities Authority did not return repeated requests
- Leading Temple Mount archaeologists, including Mazar and
Gavriel Barkai, petitioned the Israeli government to immediately
halt the dig and allow experts to inspect the emerging wall.
But Mazar and other archaeologists say they are being blocked
by the Israeli government. "The Antiquities Authority tells
us to coordinate with the police. The police send us back to
the Antiquities Authority," said Mazar, who is a professor
of Hebrew University and member of the Public Committee for Prevention
of the Destruction of Antiquities on Temple Mount. Mazar also
is the discoverer and lead archaeologist of Israel's City of
David, believed to be the palace of the biblical King David,
the second leader of a united Kingdom of Israel, who ruled from
around 1005 to 965 B.C.
- "It's crucial this wall is inspected. The Temple Mount
ground level is only slightly above the original Temple Mount
platform, meaning anything found is likely from the Temple itself,"
the archaeologist said. Fed up, Mazar and other top archaeologists
last week ascended the Mount to hold a news conference and inspect
the site without government permission, but they were blocked
from the trench by the Israeli police.
- "It is unconscionable that the Israeli government is
permitting the Waqf to use heavy equipment to chop away at the
most important archeological site in the country without supervision,"
Mazar told WND. "The Israeli government is actively blocking
us from inspecting the site and what may be a monumental find
and is doing nothing while the Waqf destroys artifacts at Judaism's
holiest site," she said.
- Rabbi Chaim Rechman, director of the international department
at Israel's Temple Institute, was among those on the Mount last
week with Mazar. He told WND he attempted to take pictures of
the damage the bulldozers are allegedly wrecking on the wall,
but his digital camera was confiscated by Israeli police at the
direction of Waqf officials. "If Israel was building a shopping
mall and they found what may be an ancient Buddhist structure,
the government would stop the construction and have archaeologists
go over the area with a fine tooth comb. Here, the holiest site
in Judaism is being damaged, a Temple wall was found, and Israel
is actively blocking experts from inspecting the site while allowing
the destruction to continue," Rechman said. Rechman charged
the Waqf was "trying to erase Jewish vestiges from the Temple
Mount." [partial article] http://WorldNetDaily.com
ISRAEL CONTEMPLATES GAZA INVASION
- September 5, 2007
- Defense Minister Ehud Barak said today that Israel may have
to launch a ground assault into the Gaza Strip. The last time
the IDF made such a move, was last summer and it triggered a
war with Lebanon. IF Israel does make such a move, The Alpha-Omega
Report will be moving to a Yellow Alert and possibly a Red Alert,
meaning special coverage will be provided with nearly round-the-clock
DF military vehicles inside the Gaza Strip
on Tuesday. (AP)
- Such a move, runs the risk of a wider
- war between Israel and its northern neighbors in Syria and
Hezbollah in Lebanon. Also it runs the risk of Iran and the United
States being drawn into a conflagration and particularly the
risk of a squaring off between the United States and Iran over
Iran's nuclear facilties. For this reason, A-O will be carefully
monitoring events in the Mideast for the next several days. For
A-O donors, The A-O Insider Report is providing additional "intelligence"
information on this developing situation so donors are encouraged

- IRAN TO HOLD PALESTINIAN SUMMIT
- Seeks to Unify Palestinian Movement - September
5, 2007 - Iranian President Ahmadinejad will host various leaders
from the Palestinian movement, including the top leadership within
Hamas, Fatah and Jihad Islami.
- Participants in the meeting will include Damascus-based Hamas
leader Khaled Mashaal, Islamic Jihad leader Ramadan Shalah, Democratic
Front for the Liberation of Palestine (DFLP) leader Nayef Hawatmeh,
and the leader of the Syrian- backed Popular Front for the Liberation
of Palestine-General Command, Ahmed Jibril. In addition, senior
Fatah leader-in-exile Farouk Kadoumi, an adversary of Palestinian
Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas, will join the meeting, the
report said. According to Iran's Mehr news agency, Kadoumi met
with Ahmadinejad on Tuesday. The Iranian leader praised the Palestinian
organization for staying true to the path of "armed struggle,"
the report said.
- "The Palestinian problem is still a gaping wound for
the entire Islamic world and nations of the region," Ahmadinejad
said. "The only way to treat it is through the resistance
of the Palestinian nation, along with faith, unity and an unwavering
stance." The Iranian President added that nobody was capable
of defeating the Arabs of Palestine, and promised that the world's
superpowers were headed for destruction.
- Iran's call for a summit is an effort to restore unity to
the Palestinian movement before any military conflict breaks
out between Israel and her neighbors or a US attack on Iran.
Depite President Ahmadinejad's claims that Iran is not worried
about, nor believes an US attack is likely, behind the scenes
the Iranian leadership is highly worried and working overtime
to prepare for any military clash with the United States.
- Meanwhile, Syria has suddenly become very quiet amid reports
that Syria was preparing for an attack against Israel. It may
well be that no Syrian attack will develop unless or until a
unified Palestinian front can be developed on Israel's southern
flank to create a 3-front war against Israel which would include
Gaza in the south, the West Bank on the East and Syri-Lebanon
in the north. For more on the summit to be held Thursday in Tehran,

By Patrick Grimm - February 28, 2007
- 1. They have destroyed our pride in our history, and a nation
that loses its sense of history soon ceases to be a nation.
- 2. They have labeled our beloved Founding Fathers as racists
and white slavers, ignoring the great representative
republic that these men constructed.
- 3. They have promoted multiculturalism, celebrating every
cultureno matter how backward and barbaricexcept
for Western white European culture. As Jewish Marxist intellectual
thug Susan Sontag stated in a poisonous rant The white
race is the cancer of humanity.
- 4. They have driven our Christian faith and heritage from
the public square by utilizing their countless criminal cadres
of ADL and ACLU Communist lawyers. Our children will soon grow
up in a society wiped clean of any vestiges of the Bible, Christ
or the cross. However, the menorah is still allowed in the White
House for Hannukah celebrations.

the Third World dregs who will soon replace us as the majority.

- The Christian world and top U.S. Christian leaders are being
urged to petition the Israeli government to immediately halt
a massive dig Islamic authorities are conducting on the Temple
Mount Judaism's holiest site that is said to be
destroying antiquities and what archaeologists believe is a wall
from the Second Jewish Temple. The Israeli government has barred
archaeologists from inspecting the Temple-era wall, believed
to be from the outer courtyard of the Second Temple . The wall
reportedly has been pulverized by bulldozers operated by the
Waqf, the Mount's Muslim custodians. "The Christian people
must rise up and stand with their brethren in Israel and make
their voices heard to stop this travesty," states an open
letter from Israel 's Temple Institute, an organization seeking
to promote awareness of the Temple Mount. "We are asking
Christians to do everything possible to petition the Israeli
government to halt the Waqf destruction and have archaeologists
immediately inspect the area." (The Israeli government does
not respect Jewish heritage and the rights of her own people!
It only responds to public opinion and pressure from outsiders!)

- MUST ISRAEL ALWAYS GIVE?
- by Lawrence Uniglicht - Isn't it rather curious the only
nation asked to give up anything tangible in any Middle East
peace negotiations is Israel? Israel's land mass is about two-
tenths of one percent the size of its surrounding mostly hostile
Islamic Middle East neighbours, yet Judea, Samaria, the Golan
Heights and the eastern part of her capital Jerusalem remain
on the table. Furthermore, Israel is asked to give so-called
Palestinian Arabs a right of return to Israel, yet no Islamic
Middle East regime offers a similar right to Jews evicted from
Once Israel so asserts herself she will no longer be
disrespected, she will no longer be expected to give and give
with no tangible quid pro quo. Her point of view will be a lead
talking point in any so-called peace negotiations. Ceding her
land for peace, ceding her heritage for peace, will no longer
be assumed, indeed will no longer be part of any negotiated package
when nations attempt to stabilize, in fact civilize the Middle
A strengthened confident Israel will no longer be viewed
as an occupier of poor Palestinian waifs once she asserts her
unwillingness to surrender her sovereign territory, justifiably
secured in 1967 in the process of defending herself against aggressive
Arabs attempting to annihilate her.
When Israeli leaders at last reinvent their own self-deprecating
states of mind, begin to defend the essential character of the
nation they were elected to steward, and demand respect from
other nations, the Jewish State will shine as a beacon of strength,
hope, and prosperity for this emerging third millennium.
- Almost at the same time as Islamic Jihad a close associate
of the Al-Aksa Brigades (Fatah) - fired longer-distance missiles
into an Israeli military base injuring 69 soldiers, Olmert has
agreed to begin destroying Jewish towns in Judea and Samaria

coming November. When will the stupidity and treason end?

IsraelNN.com by Hillel Fendel - An ex-Minister of the Interior
in the Ukraine and board member of an anti-Semitic newspaper
was granted Israeli citizenship under the Law of Return.
- Yuri Lutsenko, a former Interior Minister of the Ukraine,
received Israeli citizenship on July 22, 1999 - though he is
not Jewish according to Jewish law. The discovery of this fact
recently has caused a political storm in his home country, as
Lutsenko himself had strongly condemned political opponents who
sought citizenship in other countries. His political opponents
in the Ukraine, of which he has many, are up in arms at the fact
that while he served as a high-ranking Cabinet official and eaded
what is known there as the "orange" revolution in favor
of democracy and Westernism, he found himself refuge abroad in
case of need.

Israeli citizenship while at the same time serving in his home

"LAND FOR PEACE"
- September 23, 2007 - Stating the Obvious. Speaking on Tuesday
to some 150 foreign reporters President Shimon Peres poured cold
water on the plans to give up 95% of Judea and Samaria for an
Arab state. He said the "land for peace" formula on
which Prime Minister Ehud Olmert is working has not worked for
Israel. Deadly Cooperation between Iran and Syria. Dozens of
Iranian engineers and 15 Syrian officers were killed in a July
23 accident in Syria. According to the report, cited by Channel
10, the joint Syrian-Iranian team was attempting to mount a chemical
warhead on a Scud missile when the explosion occurred, spreading
lethal chemical agents, including sarin nerve gas. (source Jane's
Defence Weekly) (Hate toward Israel unites enemies like Sunni
Syria and Shiite Iran with no respect for International law!)
- Abbas: "Slaughter" Hamas. Hamas TV has aired a
short videotape that seems to show Fatah chief Mahmoud Abbas
telling a security chief to "slaughter" Hamas' men.
Abbas asks a man in charge of a Fatah force created to fight
Hamas "are you the commander of the operational force?"
and the man answers in the affirmative. Abbas then says one word
forcefully: "itbakh!" in Arabic "slaughter."
(If Abbas is ready to slaughter his Muslim brothers, how is he
going to deal with the Jews?)
- Immoral Political Morality. Ami Ayalon, who lost to Ehud
Barak in the race to become Labor Party Chairman in June, has
been named a Minister Without Portfolio, bringing the number
of Cabinet ministers to 26, in the government of Prime Minister
Ehud Olmert - despite Ayalon's previous protests that such a
post is "immoral." He originally objected strongly
to Labor's remaining in the Olmert government and has called
for PM Olmert's resignation. On the sixth anniversary of 9/11,
the US-backed Palestinian Authority continued its tradition of
celebrating the attacks by publishing cartoons in its official
daily that glorify Osama Bin Laden and mock American suffering.
PA's celebration of 9/11 goes back to the day of the attacks
in 2001 when the world was shocked by televised scenes of Palestinians
rejoicing in the streets.

"Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing

NEW YORK (Reuters) - Sptember 27, 2007 - Egypt´s foreign
minister warned on Friday that if U.S. President George W. Bush´s
planned Middle East peace conference fails, extremists among
the Palestinians would be strengthened. Egypt and other Arab
countries have been pressing Washington to prepare a detailed
agenda for the meeting, expected to take place in November near
Washington. Speaking at the Council on Foreign Relations, an
influential think tank in New York, Foreign Minister Ahmed Aboul
Gheit said it was vital for Washington to do as much preparation
as it did before the 1978 Camp David accords that led to a peace
treaty between Israel and Egypt.
"We need to understand where we are heading and the end
game -- the end game for the settlement between the Israelis
and the Palestinians," he said. U.S. Secretary of State
Condoleezza Rice met Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert and Palestinian
President Mahmoud Abbas this week. She said she was optimistic
they would agree to a joint document before the talks, but she
did not think the document would include a timetable. The drawing
up of a document is a contentious issue for the conference, which
still has vague goals and participants, venue and timing not
The Palestinians are pushing for a firm framework agreement looking
at the future of Jerusalem, borders, refugees and security while
the Israelis are reluctant to rush, calling for a softer "declaration
Aboul Gheit said there were plenty of discussions between Israel
and Abbas´s administration, but it was unclear whether
they were close to any kind of breakthrough. "The window
is there," he said, adding that it was vital to show Palestinians
that real progress to a settlement was possible under Abbas´s
Fatah leadership in order to weaken the appeal of its rival Hamas,
which controls the Gaza Strip.
"If before the conference there will be a document that
would convince people that both of them are able to do something,
then you will find everybody jumping in and trying to help,"
Aboul Gheit said.
"If, on the other hand, we would not see that situation,
then by the end of the year it will be a very difficult situation,
for the Palestinians mainly, and the extremist elements among
the Palestinians would win the day," he said. Bush has promoted
a two-state solution but the Israeli-Palestinian peace process
has been stalled for most of his administration. Arab diplomats
say they suspect the United States sees the peace talks as a
means to convey a false sense of momentum toward peace in the
Middle East rather than as a serious attempt to settle the Israeli-Palestinian

- ISRAELI ARCHEOLOGIESTS ORDERED OUT OF COURT HEARING
THE JERUSALEM POST Sep. 21, 2007 - Etgar Lefkovits - A group
of Israeli archeologists and public
officials who petitioned the High Court of Justice against Prime
Minister Ehud Olmert and the Antiquities Authority over ongoing
Wakf infrastructure work on the Temple Mount were ordered out
of the courtroom during a hearing Thursday, an archeologist said.
The members of the nonpartisan Committee Against the Destruction
of Antiquities on the Temple Mount had to leave the courtroom
while the state-run archeological body presented "secret"
evidence to the court. "It is more than clear that Prime
Minister Ehud Olmert has instructed the Antiquities Authority
to cooperate with the Wakf and conceal the damage to antiquities
being done during the infrastructure work at the site,"
said Hebrew University archeologist and leading Temple Mount
expert Dr. Eilat Mazar. The two-month old dig on the Temple Mount
is being carried out by Islamic officials with Israeli approval
as part of infrastructure work to repair faulty electrical lines
on the ancient compound. The independent Israeli archeologists
say that the dig, which is being carried out with tractors and
other heavy construction machinery, has created a 400-meter long
and 1.5 meter deep trench, destroying several layers of ancient
remains on the Temple Mount I don't know what happened at the
end or why they arrested Nadia. Things were over and quite when

- WE HAVE BEEN WARNED!
By Elyakim Haetzni - August 20th, 2007 - Some day we'll recall
these tranquil months of headlines devoted to road accidents
and minor scandals &SHY; the headlines of a society free from
existential cares -- as a fools paradise whose fools turned
a blind eye to the erupting volcano threatening to bury us all.
There was another summer like this one preceding Yom Kippur in
73, but this time the surprise attack is being readied
from within, and the calamity will be diplomatic. Im referring
to the ritual sacrifice that the Bush administration is preparing
for us this November that goes by the name of a peace conference.
The role of the sacrificial lamb will be filled by Jerusalem,
Judea, Samaria, hundreds of Jewish communities, and hundreds
of thousands of Jews that will become refugees in their own land
&SHY; all this on the backdrop of national, societal, and diplomatic
- The kindling and the fire for the sacrifice will be brought
by Shimon Peres and his perpetual partner in crime, Terje Larsen.
Serving them are Haim Ramon, Ehud Olmert, and Abu Mazen. Spurring
them on are two evil and ambitious women who, like the most destructive
tornadoes, are called by cute nicknames: Tzippi and Condi. On
the tombstone the gravediggers will engrave the words The
Diplomatic Horizon (for the Palestinians) and/or Principles
for the Final Status Agreement and/or Framework Agreement
for the Establishment of a Palestinian State. The conference
will deal with core issues, that is to say it will
uproot the core and the heart of our hold on our land: Jerusalem,
borders, refugees, destruction of the settlements.
- Discussions on these matters are being held continually and
urgently to the end of bringing the sacrificial lamb to Washington
on time, already bound and readied for slaughter. There are those
who are working to ensure that the sacrificial feast will be
well attended -- from Morocco in the West to the Gulf States
in the East. Israels enemies have waited 40 years for this
moment when Israel will be forced to regurgitate all that she
swallowed during the Six Day War. Their eyes will finally merit
to see the ceremony of subjugation whereby the Jews will return
to the Arabs their lost honor and resume their proper places.
To our enemies good fortune, manning the helm of Israels
ship of state is a man supremely appropriate to the task of self-administering
this coup de grace to the Jews -- a man dogged by failures and
accusations of corruption, whose personal attributes embody all
that is weak, rotten, spoilt, and foundering among the Jews in
their land at this hour . . .Continued: http://www.cephas-library.com/israel_we_have_been_warned.html

- Sharp increase in number of Israelis who choose to concede
their nationality in order to be granted German citizenship -
By Eldad Beck - BERLIN A sharp increase has been registered
in the number of Israelis who choose to give up their Israeli
citizenship in order to be granted German nationality. While
only 30 people contacted the Israeli embassy in Berlin with a
request to concede their nationality last year, 150 have already
done so in 2007.
- According to German law, applicants who wish to acquire German
citizenship must give up their former nationality, except in
cases of Jews who were persecuted by the Nazis, or of children
of mixed couples in which one of the parents is German and the
other is not. The German authorities easily grant unlimited residency
permits to Israeli immigrants who are registered as members of
one of the Jewish communities in the country or who are married
to German nationals. Permit holders enjoy most of the rights
given to citizens, save for the right to vote in elections, or

- By Thomas Omestad - Posted September 5, 2007 - As diplomats
prepare for meetings at the International Atomic Energy Agency
in Vienna next week, new pledges by Iran to answer unresolved
questions about its once clandestine nuclear program are complicating
the Bush administration's strategy of ratcheting up pressure
on Tehran. Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad speaks with
journalists during a news conference in Tehran, Iran. He denied
that the country had stalled its nuclear program, which is claimed
to be for energy only.(Majid/Getty Images). U.S. diplomats have
seized on the confirmation provided by an IAEA report finalized
last week that Iran is continuing to enrich uranium and to build
what would be a plutonium-making heavy-water reactor - in defiance
of United Nations Security Council resolutions, as well as those
of the IAEA's own board. However, the same report declared that
Iran had made "a significant step forward" by agreeing
to a work plan for addressing remaining issues about its nuclear
facilities and capabilities. IAEA officials suggest that if Iran
carries out its promises, outstanding questions could be answered
by the end of this year. Iran welcomed the report, contending
that it showed U.S. accusations that it is pursuing nuclear weapons
were groundless. That reaction was perhaps predictable. More
worrying for the administration, IAEA chief Mohamed ElBaradei,
in interviews with the New York Times and the German weekly Der
Spiegel, hailed the Iranian agreement as unprecedented and worthy
of giving Iran the limited time it prescribes to show its peaceful
intentions. He sounded a loud note of skepticism about President
Bush's current approach: gathering support for a third, tougher
round of U.N. sanctions. Continued: http://www.usnews.com/articles/news/world/2007/09/05/

the international community's silence over the incident could
have "tragic consequences." In a letter sent to UN
Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, Syria warns Israel that its "outrageous

The eight points upon which Olmert and Abbas undertake to agree
are the following:
- 1. Israel will end the occupation of the West Bank within
an agreed-upon time period. The retreat and the evacuation of
the settlements will occur gradually and in several stages. Each
area that is evacuated will be transferred to the Palestinian
