PSALMS 90:4
4  For a thousand years in thy sight are but as yesterday when it is past, and as a watch in the night.

EVEN CREATION IS ONE THOUSAND YEARS IN JESUS SITE IS ONE DAY.SO ONE DEAD ISRAELI TO ONE THOUSAND DEAD ENEMIES FITS RIGHT IN WITH CREATION.THE WORLD GOES ON FOR 6 THOUSAND YEARS-THEN THE 7 THOUSANDTH YEAR IS JESUS' RULE FROM JERUSALEM FOR ONE THOUSAND YEARS-THEN FOREVER.AND IN WAR IS THE SAME BY CREATION.FOR EVERY ONE DEAD ISRAELI-ONE THOUSAND DEAD ENEMIES WILL OCCUR.

ISAIAH 30:17
17 A thousand will flee at the threat of one; at the threat of five you will all flee away, till you are left like a flagstaff on a mountaintop, like a banner on a hill."

PSALMS 91:7
7 A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee.

LEVIDICUS 26:7-8
7 You will pursue your enemies, and they will fall by the sword before you.
8 Five of you will chase a hundred, and a hundred of you will chase ten thousand, and your enemies will fall by the sword before you.

DEUTERONOMY 32:30
30 How should one chase a thousand, and two put ten thousand to flight, except their Rock had sold them, and the LORD had shut them up?


EZEKIEL 39:11-21
11  And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will give unto Gog (RUSSIA-ARAB-MUSLIMS) a place there of graves in Israel, the valley of the passengers on the east of the sea: and it shall stop the noses of the passengers: and there shall they bury Gog and all his multitude: and they shall call it The valley of Hamongog.(THE ARAB-MUSLIM-RUSSIA BURRIAL SPOT WILL BE EAST OF THE DEAD SEA IN THE JORDAN VALLEY)
12  And seven months shall the house of Israel be burying of them, that they may cleanse the land.
13  Yea, all the people of the land shall bury them; and it shall be to them a renown the day that I shall be glorified, saith the Lord GOD.
14  And they shall sever out men of continual employment, passing through the land to bury with the passengers those that remain upon the face of the earth, to cleanse it: after the end of seven months shall they search.
15  And the passengers that pass through the land, when any seeth a man’s bone, then shall he set up a sign by it, till the buriers have buried it in the valley of Hamongog.
16  And also the name of the city shall be Hamonah. Thus shall they cleanse the land.
17  And, thou son of man, thus saith the Lord GOD; Speak unto every feathered fowl, and to every beast of the field, Assemble yourselves, and come; gather yourselves on every side to my sacrifice that I do sacrifice for you, even a great sacrifice upon the mountains of Israel, that ye may eat flesh, and drink blood.
18  Ye shall eat the flesh of the mighty, and drink the blood of the princes of the earth, of rams, of lambs, and of goats, of bullocks, all of them fatlings of Bashan.
19  And ye shall eat fat till ye be full, and drink blood till ye be drunken, of my sacrifice which I have sacrificed for you.
20  Thus ye shall be filled at my table with horses and chariots, with mighty men, and with all men of war, saith the Lord GOD.
21  And I will set my glory among the heathen, and all the heathen shall see my judgment that I have executed, and my hand that I have laid upon them.

GENESIS 16:11-12
11 And the angel of the LORD said unto her,(HAGAR) Behold, thou art with child, and shalt bear a son, and shalt call his name Ishmael;(FATHER OF THE ARAB/MUSLIMS) because the LORD hath heard thy affliction.
12 And he (ISHMAEL) will be a wild (DONKEY-JACKASS) man;(ISLAM IS A FAKE AND DANGEROUS SEX FOR MURDER CULT) his hand will be against every man,(ISLAM HATES EVERYONE) and every man's hand against him;(PROTECTING THEMSELVES FROM BEING BEHEADED) and he (ISHMAEL ARAB/MUSLIM) shall dwell in the presence of all his brethren.(LITERAL-THE ARABS LIVE WITH THEIR BRETHERN JEWS)

Israel says Gaza ground operation aims to restore calm, not oust Hamas-First IDF major land offensive against Hamas in five years unfolding on several fronts, open-ended-By AP and Times of Israel staff July 18, 2014, 2:17 am 4

Thousands of Israeli soldiers backed by tanks poured into the Gaza Strip on Thursday night, escalating a 10-day military operation to try to destroy Hamas’s weapons arsenal, rocket firing abilities and tunnels used to send terrorists from the Palestinian territory into Israel.The goal of the ground operation was to restore security for Israel’s citizens by stopping Hamas attacks, Israeli diplomatic sources said, and not to reconquer Gaza and oust Hamas.The high-stakes move was compelled by Israel’s growing exasperation over unrelenting rocket fire and followed the collapse of Egyptian-led efforts to broker a cease-fire. It also came after a failed attempt by 13 terrorists to infiltrate Israel earlier Thursday through a tunnel under the Gaza-Israel border near Kibbutz Sufa, only to be stopped by an Israeli strike at the mouth of the tunnel.Israel’s security cabinet approved the ground offensive in principle on Tuesday, after Hamas rejected an Egyptian ceasefire proposal. The resort to ground forces received unanimous approval; centrist Justice Minister Tzipi Livni said she did not take the decision “lightly,” but had “no doubt” that it was necessary.The military said the first major Israeli ground offensive in Gaza in just over five years was open-ended and would be carried out on several fronts in the coastal strip.“Our forces, large ground forces accompanied by massive air force support, naval forces and intelligence, are taking over targets in Gaza, operating against tunnels and terror activists and infrastructure,” IDF Spokesman Brig. Gen. Motti Almoz said.He called on Gaza residents to evacuate areas where the military is operating, warning the “military is operating there with very great force.”Hamas spokesman Fawzi Barhoum said Israel “will pay dearly” for the assault. “Hamas is ready for a confrontation,” he said.An official in the Gaza security operations room reported heavy Israeli tank shelling along Gaza’s border areas with Israel since 8 p.m. Thursday.“All border areas are under fire. There is a tank shell every minute,” said the official. “There is also fire from the sea toward police checkpoints.”Residents said the northern Gaza town of Beit Lahiya came under heavy Israeli shelling. “There is the sound of tank shells all the time,” said Jamal Abu Samra, 42, a farmer in the area. He said his wife, six children, four brothers and their families were huddling on the ground floor of the family home. “We don’t have power since the afternoon so we are listing to the (battery-operated) radio to hear the news,” he said.He said the Israeli military sent text messages to residents urging them to leave the area. Abu Samra said he and his relatives decided to stay because they felt nowhere in Gaza is safe. “It is better to stay home than move anywhere,” he said.Thousands of soldiers backed by tanks and huge DC9 bulldozers entered the Hamas-ruled territory after 10 p.m. Thursday, Israeli spokesman Lt. Col. Peter Lerner said.Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who had come under growing domestic pressure to ratchet up Israel’s response to rocket fire that 10 days of airstrikes had failed to stem, was set to brief ministers in Tel Aviv on Friday morning on the ground offensive.Israel has faced pressure over mounting civilian casualties, especially after at least 13 Palestinian children under the age of 12 were killed by Israeli strikes in the past two days.But the Israeli diplomatic said Israel believes it has considerable international support for the operation, since Hamas has fired some 1,500 rockets throughout Israel. The US did not try to veto a ground offensive, the sources said. Israel on Wednesday accepted the Egyptian cease-fire proposal which was essentially a return to the status quo ante — and Hamas then rejected it. Similarly, on Thursday, Hamas ended a “humanitarian lull” of several hours by immediately resuming rocket fire, actions that Israel feels have boosted its legitimacy in the operation, even though it has been heavily criticized for the fatalities in Gaza, where the death toll is some 250. Only one Israeli has died as a direct result of Hamas fire; Israel’s Iron Dome anti-missile system has intercepted hundreds of the Hamas rockets.Thousands of Israeli soldiers had massed on the border with Gaza in recent days, waiting for the order to go in.Israel had called up 48,000 reserve soldiers, and later Thursday the Cabinet authorized the military to call up 18,000 more.The ground operation followed a brief truce earlier Thursday in which Israel held fire to allow Gazans to stock up on food and other necessities after being largely holed up at home since the conflict began last month.Since July 8, Israeli strikes have hit more than 2,000 targets in Gaza.“In light of the despicable and relentless aggression by Hamas and the dangerous infiltration into Israel, Israel is obliged to protect its citizens,” a statement from Netanyahu’s office said late Thursday.Israel last carried out a major ground offensive in Gaza in January 2009. During the three-week campaign, some 1,400 Palestinians were killed, including hundreds of civilians. Thirteen Israelis were killed as well. Israel has blamed Hamas for the heavy civilian toll, saying the Islamist group stages attacks and fires rockets from heavily populated residential areas, as well as mosques and schools.“This is the second stage of the operation,” said IDF Spokesman Almoz, referring to Operation Protective Edge, launched 10 days ago to stop the Hamas rocket fire.The IDF had spent the past few days making final preparations for the ground offensive, he said. “Our forces heading to their goals are determined and full of motivation.”

Israel’s envoy to US faces harsh criticism in Twitter Q&A-Ron Dermer uses social media tool for public diplomacy, responds to charges of genocide, war crimes-By Rebecca Shimoni Stoil July 17, 2014, 9:09 pm 10-The Times of Israel

WASHINGTON — As a brief humanitarian ceasefire came to an end in Israel on Thursday, Israel’s Ambassador to the United States Ron Dermer took to the Twitterverse to engage in a open question-and-answer session that boosted the hashtag #AskDermer to a number one trending rank in the US Thursday morning. Dermer faced a barrage of questions critical to Israel, but aides emphasized that the diplomat, who has been in office for under a year, views social media as critical to Israel’s public relations effort.Dermer’s first questioner, who identified as Tauseef Hassan, asked the ambassador “how can Israel drop a bomb exactly on a house knowing who is inside but it can’t tell 4people playing soccer on a beach are kids?”Dermer responded that “we’re doing everything to keep civilians out of harm’s way. Multiple warnings calls, texts, leaflets to evacuate. Unfortunately Hamas is using human shields to protect their rockets, placing missiles next to mosques, hospitals & schools. Even with all the measures Israel takes innocents are sometimes unintentionally harmed. We investigate every incident.”The Associated Press’s veteran diplomatic writer Matt Lee noted during the talk that “a quick check of the #AskDermer twitter chat questions this morning seems to indicate a certain level of hostility toward #Israel,” but Dermer described the participants as a “small vocal minority.”Dermer reiterated that Israel had “broad strong support 4 Israel’s right to defend itself throughout America & internationally,” a statement reinforced by data from a recent Pew Research poll that found that 51% of Americans were sympathetic to Israel in the current conflict.Embassy officials said that Dermer took to Twitter in an effort “to reach as many audiences as possible.” According to the embassy, the #AskDermer hashtag was posted in over 16,500 tweets, making the topic the top trending item in the US and the third trending item worldwide.“The Israeli case is just and stands on a steady foundation. I am willing to participate in challenging forums in order to defend Israel and defend the truth,” Dermer explained Thursday.Dermer faced questions that included “Why does Israel dramatically intensify its bombing campaign in the hours before a ‘ceasefire’? Is it like getting your licks in?” – which he denied – “Does Israel have the right to defend itself by bombing hospitals?” and “Would you say that a Palestinian life is worth as much as an Israeli’s? Or is an Israeli Jew’s simply worth more?”To the last, Dermer argued that “Israel cares more about Pal civilians in Gaza than Hamas. We try to get them out of harm’s way. They put them in harm’s way.”He also responded to claims of genocide, noting the scale of genocides perpetrated in the past hundred years and contrasting them to the estimated 15,000 people killed in almost 70 years of conflict between Israelis and Palestinians.Twice in the course of the discussion, he referred readers through a live link to the version of Hamas’s charter available on the website of Israel’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs.One participant pushed Dermer on Israel’s warnings regarding Iran’s nuclear program, asking “why should we believe you, or PM Netanyahu, about Iran when we’ve heard for 20+ years that they’re 6 months from having nukes?”Dermer denied that Israel has been making the claims for two decades, but argued that “had no pressure been put on Iran, they would have had nuclear weapons a long time ago.”

Abbas, Sissi urge immediate Gaza ceasefire-Egyptian and Palestinians leaders meet in Cairo to broker deal as fighting intensifies-By AFP and Times of Israel staff July 17, 2014, 11:11 pm 1
Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas and Egyptian President Abdel Fattah el-Sissi called Thursday for an immediate ceasefire amid intensifying efforts to end Hamas’s rocket fire at Israeli territory and the IDF’s military offensive on the Gaza Strip, Ahram Arabic news website reported.Abbas and Sissi issued a joint statement on the matter after a meeting in Cairo on Thursday afternoon.The talks came hours before Israel launched a ground operation in the Gaza Strip aimed at destroying Hamas’s terror infrastructure, significantly widening the 10-day campaign.More than 230 Palestinians have been killed since Israel launched Operation Protective Edge on July 8 to stamp out rocket fire from Gaza terrorists, medics say. One Israeli died in cross-border rocket fire.Cairo has once again become a diplomatic hub to end the fighting in Gaza after Egypt initially proposed a failed truce without consulting Hamas.Abbas met in Cairo on Wednesday Hamas deputy leader Moussa Abu Marzouk who insisted on changes to the Egyptian truce plan including guarantees on opening border crossings to the besieged Gaza Strip.The initiative called for a return to an Egyptian-brokered 2012 ceasefire that ended eight days of fighting, and loosened border restrictions on goods for the blockaded coastal enclave.Israel initially accepted the Egyptian initiative but Hamas rejected the plan, saying it had not been consulted.

EU leaders urge end to Gaza violence-17.07.14 @ 09:26-By EUOBSERVER

EU leaders in Brussels on Wednesday in a statement urged both sides of the conflict in Gaza to "de-escalate the situation, to end the violence, to end the suffering of the civilian populations". The leaders noted that while Israel has the right to defend itself, it must act proportionately.

07/17/2014 - VATICAN INSIDER--Gaza’s Christians and life under the bombs-Bombings on Gaza-The pastor of the Holy Family Church in Gaza, Fr. Jorge Hernandez describes the daily life of Christians in the Gaza Strip. Three missiles landed near the church where Mother Teresa’s nuns have sought shelter along with a group of disabled children-Giorgio Bernardelli

“We were also asked – as were the residents of Beit Hanoun and Beit Lahia - to evacuate our homes immediately. And like everyone else, we are asking ourselves where we can go. Gaza is small. Everything is close by. There is no safe haven or neutral place that can shelter us. Where do we go?”From the Latin parish of the Holy Family in Gaza, Fr. Jorge Hernandez, a member of the Institute of the Incarnate Word describes the reality his community is experiencing. He is also standing under the rain of bombs falling down from the sky onto the Strip and this is not the first time. The Argentinean priest has been leading the Gaza Strip’s small Catholic community – just 200 faithful in a land that is home to just under 2000 Christians in total - for several years. They have shared the all the suffering of a population that remains isolated inside an area that barely measures 360 km² but is inhabited by 1,8 million people.On Wednesday afternoon – around about the same time as four children were being killed by an Israeli missile which struck a beach – fear enveloped the Holy Family Church as well: three missiles fell very close to the parish buildings, so yesterday it was decided that the three nuns from the same order who are working with Fr. Hernandez would return to Bethlehem. Because they are foreign, they were able to leave the Strip during the brief ceasefire the UN managed to obtain on humanitarian grounds.  But the pastor has stayed put, along with the Mother Teresa nuns who moved in with a group of disabled children. Their institute is also located in an area affected by raids so they thought the Holy Family Church was a safer place to be.In this period of huge turmoil, Fr. Hernandez has been keeping in touch with the outside world by posting letters on the Institute of the Incarnate Word’s Facebook page. These letters describe the daily lives of his parishioners who face the constant threat of bombs. “As I was preparing my sermon for mass, I asked myself: what can I tell these people? How do I comfort them? What good word can I throw in? It’s so hard. And then I thought: will anyone come? Today, thank God, I was able to celebrate Sunday mass with seven courageous nuns and four courageous men. Given the circumstances, that gave us some reason for some joy.” “One Christian family felt the effects of a bomb which fell on a house near theirs. Broken windows, smoke, screams, chaos: this was the tragic consequence they experienced. And now young children are starting to get sick from the fear, the stress, the shock waves caused by detonations and the constant noise. Their parents are really doing all that they can to distract them and ensure that they are not traumatized by this brutal violence: every time there’s “noise”, they play at jumping around, they dance or hug the children trying to cover their ears.”In his letters, Fr. Hernandez says the war was not unexpected. “People had expected this military escalation for some time now and it could last a long time. The only thing that surprised us was that the local authorities showed resistance on a larger scale and were better prepared than in other wars. The fact that Hamas attacked Tel Aviv and Jerusalem was no small matter,” he explained. The priest also said he feared that the war would lead to Islamic fundamentalists striking out against Christians: “Judging by what is going on elsewhere, I wouldn’t be surprised,” he said. “This is partly why the strength Christians in Gaza have shown is admirable. They know only too well now that their fate lies in God’s hands.”
