VATICAN WANTS CONTROL OF JERUSALEM
BIBLE PROPHESY IS BEING FULFILLED QUICKLY NOW. I BELIEVE IF HAMAS WINS THE PALESTINIAN ELECTIONS AND BENJIMIN NENTANYAHU WINS THE ISRAELI ELECTIONS IN MARCH. THIS WOULD FORCE ISRAEL TO BE SECURED BY THE EUROPEAN UNION LIKE THE BIBLE SAYS. I CAN SEE THE ISRAELIS GIVING UP LAND FOR SECURITY TO BE PROTECTED FROM HAMAS. THIS IN TURN WILL LEAD TO THE FINAL STATUS TALKS OVER JERUSALEM WERE THE VATICAN WILL BE INVOLVED AS WELL AS THE ISRAELI AND PALESTINIANS. NOW WE CAN SEE WHY THE WHOLE WORLD GETS INVOLVED WHEN IT COMES TO THE FINAL STATUS TALKS. AND SINCE THE BIBLE SAYS THE VATICAN AND THE EU WILL BE WORKING HAND IN GLOVE, NOW WE CAN SEE HOW THIS IS COMING TOGETHER LITERALLY LIKE THE BIBLE SAYS IT WILL.
THE EU LEADER AND THE FALSE POPE WILL BE CLOSE AND SINCE THE VATICAN OR WORLD CHURCH PROSTITUTES ITSELF WITH THE KINGS OF THE EARTH, HERE WE SEE THE VATICAN WANT CONTROL OF JERUSALEM SO IT WILL WANT IN ON ALL THE TALKS OVER JERUSALEM, TO TRY TO GRAB CONTROL OF IT.
PRAISE BE TO KING JESUS (THE GOD OF ISRAEL) THAT HE TOLD US WHAT WOULD BE HAPPENING AND WHAT TO WATCH FOR IN THESE LAST DAY OF THE AGE OF GRACE.

Vatican muscling in on Jerusalem
Says Jews cannot be trusted with ownership of their ancient capital
By Stan Goodenough
January 4th, 2006
The Roman Catholic Church says the Jewish state cannot be trusted to exercise control over the city of Jerusalem – ancient and eternal capital of the people of Israel. In a statement whose arrogance and contempt he seemingly could not see, the Vatican’s legal advisor in Israel, David Jaeger, told an international conference in Haifa Tuesday that Jerusalem was too important a city to leave in the hands of either “Palestinians” or Jews.
Jaeger’s view was that the status of Jerusalem required the approval of the international community as a whole. Ironically the Vatican, which claims to be spiritual home to one billion of the world’s Christians, rejects the biblical stipulation granting everlasting possession of ancient Canaan, inclusive of Jerusalem, to the Jewish people.
Since 1947 it has sought to have Jerusalem internationalized, confident that with Rome’s massive global constituency the pope will be able to exercise substantial control over the city.
Jaeger is historically on solid ground when he says the Palestinian Arabs should have no say over Jerusalem. The city has never been an Arab capital and the “Palestinians” have no historic or national rights to it (or to any other part of Israel’s biblical homeland).
The Jews, by contrast, have venerated the city as their holiest site for over 3000 years. Israel is the only nation that has ever had Jerusalem as its capital. During centuries of exile, Jews everywhere prayed daily to return to Jerusalem in order to be able to once again worship their God in this place.
Jerusalem is described in the New Testament as the “City of the great King,” referring to Jesus of Nazareth who also bears the title King of the Jews. The book of Revelation, foretelling Jesus’ return to Jerusalem, calls Him the Lion of the Tribe of Judah – i.e. He remains Jewish.
In recent history, it has only been while under Jewish administration that Jerusalem has flourished and that protected access to all of its holy places (including Christian and Muslim sites) has been guaranteed.
Between 1949 and 1967, when the Arab kingdom of Jordan occupied the eastern part of the city, the rights of Jews and Christians to visit their holy places was restricted, sometimes denied. The Jewish Quarter of the Old City was left to rot, its synagogues sacked and burned. Despite this, the Vatican believes it should have a say that could deny the right of the Jewish people to keep their beloved capital in their hands.

ARIEL SHARON HAS MASSIVE STROKE

Hospital Director Dispels Rumors: Sharon is Alive, Unconscious
By Hillel Fendel
The Director-General of Hadassah Hospital, Dr. Shlomo Mor-Yosef, spoke to reporters at 2 PM this afternoon and told them that the rumors of Sharon's death are not true.
"The Prime Minister's condition is stable, but still serious," he said. "All the vital signs that we measure are in accordance with what we expect after an operation of this type.
"Part of the required treatment at present," Mor-Yosef said, "is to retain low pressure within the skull, and this requires deep anesthetization for at least the coming 24 hours."
"My purpose in telling you this is, first of all, to keep you informed, and also," Mor-Yosef then added emphatically, "to put to bed the rumors that are sweeping the country. As director of Hadassah, I pledge that any change in the Prime Minister's condition will be reported to you."
Prime Minister Ariel Sharon's condition deteriorated critically upon his arrival in the hospital Wednesday night, and he underwent an emergency seven-hour operation to stop the massive bleeding in his brain. Following the surgery, his condition was described as "serious," then "very serious." It is noteworthy that virtually every interview on public television and radio begins with the interviewee saying that he is "praying for Sharon's full recovery."
Most interviewees and their interviewers even add that they "join the entire country" in praying for the Prime Minister. As news of Sharon's operation became known, Army Radio reported that "spontaneous prayer quorums" had sprouted up at the Western Wall to pray for Sharon. This appeared to be a case of wishful thinking, however, as web-photos of the holy site, backed up by eyewitness testimony, showed very sparse attendance at the Wall - except for several press photographers making a rare visit and photographing the worshipers from various angles.
Olmert Holds First Cabinet Meeting Next to Sharon’s Empty Chair
By Hillel Fendel and Scott Shiloh
“This is a difficult time for all of us,” said Acting Prime Minister Ehud Olmert at the emergency cabinet meeting he led Thursday morning.The meeting was unusually short, and no decisions were made. “Arik is not just a leader, but a close friend to us all," Olmert said. "We all hope that Arik, who has won many battles in his life, will emerge from this one as well, healthy and whole."
Olmert conducted the meeting next to Prime Minister Ariel Sharon’s empty chair, which was placed as usual at the center of the long cabinet conference table.
Attorney-General Menachem Mazuz clarified today that Sharon is still considered to be only "temporarily" unable to fulfill his duties, meaning that Olmert is still only a "substitute" Prime Minister. The "temporary" period ends automatically after 100 days - but in any event, the national elections are only 82 days away.
Mazuz explained that the "temporary" period could also end based on a clear medical prognosis about Sharon's condition. In any event, Mazuz clarified that the elections will be held on March 28, as scheduled.An unprecedented amount of power has now been concentrated in the hands of Ehud Olmert. In addition to serving as prime minister, he also holds the powers and portfolios of 12 government ministries. The ministries were recently vacated by the Labor Party ministers, and Sharon had not yet appointed their replacements.
At a meeting of police and security leaders today, it was decided that if the Prime Minister passes away, they will be the first to be informed. This, in order to enable the police and Shabak (General Security Service) to prepare for various situations, ranging from the expected arrival of throngs of citizens to the hospital, up to total preparedness of the security establishment
for internal and external threats.
It was further decided that a total curfew would be declared on the Arab-populated areas of Judea and Samaria. Army forces are to be thickened in Judea and Samaria, and specifically around Gaza, from where Kassam rockets are expected to be fired in response to the news.
Likud party leader MK Binyamin Netanyahu has suspended his decision that Likud ministers must leave the government. That decision was supposed to take effect on Sunday, after Prime Minister Sharon’s heart catheterization which had been scheduled for today (Thursday).
“We’re still in [the government]," a senior Likud official said.
"We have a responsibility to the country, and this not the time to discuss resignations." Netanyahu himself said that all politicking should be put on hold for a few days. Foreign Minister Silvan Shalom, #2 man in the Likud, said, “This is a painful and difficult time for the Israeli people. The hour is difficult and complicated.”Education Minister Limor Livnat (Likud) said, “We are praying for the prime minister’s recovery. The Likud is represented at the cabinet meeting and will be here in the future.”
Agriculture Minister Yisrael Katz (Likud), one of the only opponents of the disengagement who remained in Sharon’s Cabinet, said, “The Likud will stay in the government to assist its new head.” He described Sharon as “a great fighter who is now lying powerless, and we are all praying for his welfare.”Justice Minister Tzippi Livni (Kadima), to whom Sharon was reportedly planning to grant a very high place on the party's Knesset list, said, “The message coming out of today’s cabinet meeting, aside from hoping and praying, is that the government is functioning. I will do everything I can to help the Acting Prime Minister function as leader of this government, and to make the right decisions.
I am certain that the other ministers will do the same.”Rabbi Yitzchak David Grossman, Chief Rabbi of the development town of Migdal HaEmek in the lower Galilee, visited Sharon's hospital room this afternoon. Rabbi Grossman, who spoke to Sharon yesterday afternoon, moved from Jerusalem's insulated Meah She'arim quarter over 30 years ago straight to Migdal HaEmek, is the founder and head of the Migdal Or yeshiva institutions, in which over 6,000 students - mostly from underprivileged homes - study.

AUSTRIA EU 2006 TAKEOVER
The European union is the third-largest governing institution in the world. Its 455 million citizens are spread out over a landmass that is half the size of the continental United States. In the course of the next 2 years, its people will ratify a constitution, pledgeing their lives and fortunes, and tying their personal and collective destiny to its political success.
What is Europe?
All in all , the EU is a remarkable feat, especially when one stops to reflect on the fact that even its architects are unsure of exactly what the EU represents. The problem is that there has never been any governing institution like the EU.
It is not a state, even though it acts like one. Its laws supercede the laws of the twenty- five nations that make it up and are binding. It has a single currency-the Euro-that is used by many of its members. It regulates commerce and trade and coordinates energy, transportation, communications, and increasingly, education across the many national borders that make it up.
Its citizens all enjoy a common EU passport. It has a European Parliament, which makes laws, and a European Court, whose judicial decisions are binding on member countries and the citizens of the EU. And it has a president and a military force. In many of the most important particulars that make up a state, the EU qualifies. Yet, it cannot tax its citizens, and its member states still enjoy a veto on any decision that might commit their troops to be employed.
Most important of all, the EU is not a territory-bound entity. Although it coordinates and regulates activity that takes place within the territorial boundries of its nation-state members, it has no claim to territory and is, in fact, an extra-territorial governing institution. This is what makes the EU unique.
Nation-states are geographically defined governing institutions that control specific territory. Even dynasties and empires claimed ultimate control over the territory of their subject kingdoms. The only faint historical parallel to the EU is the Holy Roman Empire of the 8th to the early nineteenth centuries. In that period, the Vatican claimed ultimate sovereignty over the principalities, city-states, and kingdoms of much of western and northern Europe.
In reality, the Holy see's actual influence over territory-related matters was more moral and ethical than enforceable. The member states of the European Union still control the territory they represent, but their absolute power over geography has been steadily eroded by EU legislative encroachments.
For example, the Schengen Agreement, an EU agreement forged in 1985, gives the European Union the power to create a Europe -wide set of rules governing immigration into the EU, and even includes a European police force to protect the EU's members' borders. The individual states, however still retain the right to decide how mant immigrants to allow into their country and to designate which countries outside the EU they can emigrate from.
Because the EU itself is not bound by territorial constraints, it can continue to bring new states under its umbrella. Indeed, the eU's criteria for membership is value-based rather than geographically conditioned. In theory, any country can apply for membership and, if it fulfills the qualificatiions, be admitted into the union. The open-ended and inclusive nature of this new kind of governing institution has caused concern among existing members and tentions among prospective candidate nations.
Some argue that even though membership is value-based, it ought to be limited only to those countries that make up historical Europe. he problem is, historians disagree as to exactly what constitutes historical Europe. Geographers say there is no such thing as the European continent. Yet others argue that Europe begins at the edge of the Atlantic Ocean and extends across europe into Russia and even to Turkey to the southeast. Is Russia part of Europe or Asia? Is Turkey part of Europe or the Mideast? Recall, the ottman Empire controlled parts of europe at various times. So is Europe part of the Mideast?
Where, then does the European Union end? No one knows. EU observers use the term "variable geometry" to encompass all of the possible combinations that might make up this new governing experiment. If it's hard to grasp exactly what the EU is, it is because it is continuously metamorphosing into new forms as it adjusts to fast-moving new realities. The EU is , in actuality, the first really post-modern governing institution.
Like Daniel says this EU will devour the whole world thru peace agreements.
33 His legs of iron, his feet part of iron and part of clay.
39 And after thee shall arise another kingdom inferior to thee, and another third kingdom of brass, which shall bear rule over all the earth.40 And the fourth kingdom shall be strong as iron: forasmuch as iron breaketh in pieces and subdueth all things: and as iron that breaketh all these, shall it break in pieces and bruise.41 And whereas thou sawest the feet and toes, part of potters' clay, and part of iron, the kingdom shall be divided; but there shall be in it of the strength of the iron, forasmuch as thou sawest the iron mixed with miry clay.42 And as the toes of the feet were part of iron, and part of clay, so the kingdom shall be partly strong, and partly broken.43 And whereas thou sawest iron mixed with miry clay, they shall mingle themselves with the seed of men: but they shall not cleave one to another, even as iron is not mixed with clay.
7 After this I saw in the night visions, and behold a fourth beast, dreadful and terrible, and strong exceedingly; and it had great iron teeth: it devoured and brake in pieces, and stamped the residue with the feet of it: and it was diverse from all the beasts that were before it; and it had ten horns.8 I considered the horns, and, behold, there came up among them another little horn, before whom there were three of the first horns plucked up by the roots: and, behold, in this horn were eyes like the eyes of man, and a mouth speaking great things.
23 Thus he said, The fourth beast shall be the fourth kingdom upon earth, which shall be diverse from all kingdoms, and shall devour the whole earth, and shall tread it down, and break it in pieces.24 And the ten horns out of this kingdom are ten kings that shall arise: and another shall rise after them; and he shall be diverse from the first, and he shall subdue three kings.25 And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time.
'New thoughts' from Austria as it takes EU helm
By James Kanter International Herald Tribune
MONDAY, JANUARY 2, 2006
Vienna : Austria is to revive the moribund European constitution and will promote expansion of the European Union, but it will also raise a critical voice on issues like the involvement of European institutions in the domestic affairs of the 25 member states, according to Chancellor Wolfgang Schüssel, whose country took over the six-month rotating EU presidency on Sunday.
Following months of bitter contention over the Union's direction, Schüssel, 60, said Europe needed "some moments of fantasy and flexibility and new thoughts." He said he would restart efforts to draft a new constitution at an EU conference on European identity to be held in Salzburg in late January. In an interview at his office at the chancellery, Schüssel was generally upbeat about Europe's prospects. But he warned that Turkey might never become a full member of the EU and said that the services directive, a bill making it easier for European workers and companies to offer services abroad, should be probably be scrapped and rewritten.
"We shouldn't wait too long to revive the debate on the European future," Schüssel said. He said he aimed to have a timetable and road map for ratification of a new European constitution ready by mid-2006, when Austria hands over the EU presidency to Finland. French and Dutch voters rejected the previous constitution in referendums last spring, effectively killing its chances of ratification. The dense and lengthy document had been drafted by about 100 European notables headed by Valéry Giscard d'Estaing, the former French president.
Schüssel called that process elitist and anachronistic, declaring, "I want to avoid a top-down approach." This time, he said, a broad spectrum of citizens including scientists, journalists and professors should contribute ideas for a new constitution. "We should really now start again with a real European debate," he said in the interview Friday, adding that a new document could possibly be ratified in tandem with European parliamentary elections in 2009.
Although much of the current unhappiness about the EU appears to stem from the latest round of expansion, from 15 to 25 members, in May 2004, Schüssel said he would push plans to add another four members quickly. Romania and Bulgaria should be able to join by 2007, or 2008 at the latest, he said, while membership for Croatia and Macedonia should follow soon after.
The European Commission, the EU executive, is expected to announce in the coming months whether Romania and Bulgaria have made the grade. Bulgaria in particular has "made enormous progress in fights against organized crime," Schüssel said.
Regarding Turkey, which opened EU membership talks in October, Schüssel said it deserved to be a candidate even though the outcome of negotiations toward full membership remained uncertain. "The end must be open," he said. This is the second time Austria has held the EU presidency since the country of eight million joined the EU in 1995.
Schüssel, who has led the center-right People's Party for a decade, said the timing was felicitous because it coincided with the 250th anniversary of the birth of Mozart and the 150th anniversary of the birth of Sigmund Freud, both born in present-day Austria.
The anniversaries, he said, could serve as "a hook to make visible that Europe is not only one identity, but that European identity consists of a great variety of sounds, images, thoughts, poems, languages, cultures - even smells, when you think about all those varieties of cooking."
In addition to the focus on identity, Schüssel said, a key event of the Austrian presidency will be a conference in April, in the northern Austrian town of Saint Poelten, on the principle of "subsidiarity" - EU jargon for allowing member states to keep rule-making under local control where possible. Even as Europeans integrate their economies, it remains critical to respect national sovereignty, Schüssel said.
"There are some tendencies within the European Union that can be seen with critical eyes," he said, notably "an extension of communitarian law by the European court. The Luxembourg-based European Court of Justice is similar to the U.S. Supreme Court in the way it decides how to apply federal-style laws. A recent decision by EU judges to force national treasuries to reimburse companies for tax losses outside their home countries was among a series of "backdoor decisions of the European court" that Schüssel said served to extend EU law without politicians' prior agreement.

2006 JUDGEMENT ALREADY
Sunday January 01,06 3:30PM
Like Reuven Kossover said since January 1,06 and the Jewish Calendar Tevet 01,5766 line up this means judgement for the Nations. Well he got that one right from Rav Yehoshua Friedman. In Just the Last week, From The begining of Chanukah (December 25) to January 01,06.
Fires destroy acres and homes in Texas, and Oklahoma. Western parts of California get flooded big time. Australia wildfires raging as of January 1,06. And last but not least, The European Union troops come in to Israel as part of a 3 year agreement with the Palestinians to help at the border.
God said that on the feast days prophesies would be fulfilled. As we see right off in Genesis 1:14
14 And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years:
Notice Jewish feast days begin from 6 PM till 6 PM the following night. Notice in this verse and let them be for SIGNS. What is prophesy. Prophesy is SIGNS being fulfilled, its no accident that these fires and flooding and EU troops come into Israel on this Chanukah 2005-2006.
All kinds of happenings have happened on previous feast days, and in the future all the main
prophesy happenings will be on feast days or Israeli hollidays.
Heres Reuvens article were I got the Calendar imformation from. See Gods Israelis are even blessing me with information I don't know. to help me put prophesy happening in perspective. I give all the praise to the God of Israel (JESUS CHRIST OUR SAVIOR).
This process will accelerate after January 1, 2006.This is also 1 Tevet, 5766, the day that G-d begins executing judgment against non-Jews (according to Rav Yehoshua Friedman). Here I'm following (more or less) the words of a leading mekubal in Israel, who warned that American Jews should leave and come home because a series of terrible disasters would begin to
overtake the world.If I were you, I'd really celebrate Christmas or Hanukkah this year, and if you can, buy some gold coins and store them in a safe place. Pick up Yeats' poem, "The Second Coming", and read it over a time or two. Kedai lekha -- it will be worth it to you.
