DAY 9-ISRAEL CREATE HAMONGOG IN THE JORDAN VALLEY FOR THE ARABS TO BE BURRIED-MAKE EZEKIEL 39 LITERALLY COME TO PASS
2 PETER 3:8
8 But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.
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.
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."
7 A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee.
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.
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?
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.
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)

Israeli Airstrike Hits Home of Senior Hamas Leader-Israel hits empty Gaza home of Hamas leader Mahmoud al-Zahar and several other senior Hamas officials.By Elad Benari-First Publish: 7/16/2014, 2:42 AM-IsraelNationalNews
An Israeli airstrike on Tuesday night targeted the home of senior Hamas leader Mahmoud al-Zahar, security officials told the AFP news agency.There was no one in the house, in western Gaza City, at the time the airstrike hit, the security sources and witnesses said.Witnesses said at least two missiles hit Zahar's home, flattening the four-storey building and causing damage to the adjacent mosque and several neighboring houses.Israeli strikes also hit the home in western Gaza City of Bassem Naim, a senior Hamas official, and those of former health minister Fathi Hammad and Hamas MP Ismail al-Ashqar, both in Jabalia in the north.The airstrikes came hours after the IDF advised residents of several neighborhoods in northern Gaza to leave their homes ahead of an impending airstrike.“As part of our effort to avoid harming civilians, we are sending messages to residents of northern Gaza to leave homes for their own safety,” the IDF Spokesperson tweeted on Tuesday night.The IDF routinely warns innocent civilians ahead of an airstrike so that they are unharmed, whereas Hamas openly boasts about the "success" of its strategy of using civilians as human shields.Al-Zahar recently issued a direct threat against Israel, declaring that Hamas has rockets that can hit any city in Israel.He further said that during Operation Pillar of Defense in 2012, Hamas held a “dry run” in attacking Israeli cities such as Tel Aviv and Jerusalem. Hamas is known to have test-fired long-range M-175 rockets that can reach Tel Aviv and even beyond that when fired from Gaza.It is believed that Al-Zahar and the other senior leaders of Hamas are hiding in underground bunkers.
IDF Warns Northern Gaza Residents to Evacuate Their Homes-IDF tells residents of two northern Gaza neighborhoods that an airstrike against terrorists is impending.-By Elad Benari-First Publish: 7/16/2014, 12:12 AM-IsraelNationalNews
The IDF has warned residents of northern Gaza to evacuate their homes, Al Arabiya reported on Tuesday night.According to the report, the warning was given to residents of the Sajaiya and Zeitoun neighborhoods. The IDF traditionally warns innocent civilians ahead of an airstrike so that they are unharmed.Earlier this week, the IDF dropped leaflets above northern Gaza and sent cell-phone messages to locals.The messages warned civilians to move away from Hamas terrorists and command centers, which pose a grave risk to their safety. Hamas urged Palestinian Arabs to ignore these warnings.During the current escalation, Hamas has openly boasted about the "success" of its strategy of using civilians as human shields, and the IDF has published extensive evidence of the practice.Meanwhile, AFP reported that three people were killed in two Israeli air strikes on Gaza on Tuesday night.One strike killed two men in a car in southern Rafiah, and a second in central Johr al-Deeq killed one man, emergency services spokesman Ashraf al-Qudra told the news agency.
Erdogan Accuses Israel of 'State Terrorism'-Turkish Prime Minister attacks Israel, as rockets continue to rain on civilians and Hamas rejects ceasefire.By AFP and Tova Dvorin-First Publish: 7/15/2014, 1:54 PM / Last Update: 7/15/2014, 8:29 PM-IsraelNationalNews
Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan fired more accusations at Israel on Tuesday, even after Israel accepted a cease-fire agreement that saw Hamas rain tens of missiles on innocent Israeli civilians in its wake."Israel is continuing to carry out state terrorism in the region. Nobody, except us, tells it to stop," Erdogan told members of his ruling party in parliament, accusing Israel of perpetrating a "massacre" of Palestinians."To what extent will the world remain silent to this state terrorism?" he asked. "What's the difference between this mentality and that of Hitler?"Meanwhile, over 30 rockets have rained on Israel in three hours on Tuesday, after Israel accepted a cease-fire proposal from Egypt and agreed to halt its self-defense operation, Operation Protective Edge. Hamas spokesperson Sami Abu Zahri reiterated shortly after the truce announcement that it is uninterested in attacking the Israeli civilian population - despite the fact that all of Hamas's rockets have been aimed at civilian population centers. The group's propaganda has also openly threatened Israeli civilians."The idea of disarmament is not subject to discussion," he said, adding that "the Palestinians are on occupied land, so it has a legitimate right to resist."In a statement issued around the same time, Hamas said it did not consider itself obliged by the Egyptian proposal."Because we were excluded from the consultations for this (truce) initiative, we are not obliged to abide by it," it said.Erdogan has become increasingly more vocal over the operation, and threatened to end the normalization process with Israel.Erdogan also accused Israel of "lies" because "not enough" Israeli Jews have died in the conflict."They say (Hamas) is firing rockets. But is there anybody who died?" he asked. "The number of Palestinians that you (Israel) killed is now 100. Their (Israel's) life is based on lies.""You will first stop this oppression. If not, it is not possible to realize normalization between Turkey and Israel," Erdogan said, on a separate occasion.As of Tuesday night, no contacts have been made with Israel so far, a Turkish official told AFP."Concrete steps can only be taken after Israel stops its assault on Gaza," the official said, speaking on condition of anonymity.Erdogan himself has also had a long public record of anti-Semitic statements, including several recently despite efforts to normalize relations.Several months ago, Erdogan kicked and beat a protestor who approached the premier over the May 2014 Soma mine disaster."Why are you running away from me - Israeli sperm!" he shrieked, slapping the protester, in video footage uploaded to Sozcu TV. The word "sperm" is seen as a particularly offensive insult in Turkish. The footage later shows security forces beating the man.In 1998, prior to his stint as PM, Erdogan - then mayor of Istanbul - infamously declared that "the Jews have begun to crush the Muslims in Palestine, in the name of Zionism. Today, the image of the Jews is no different than that of the Nazis."More recently, Erdogan accused Israel of being behind the ouster of Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood leader Mohammed Morsi.
Netanyahu Promises 'Great Force' Until Hamas Stops Rockets-Prime Minister promises to do 'everything necessary' until rocket fire ceases, after renewed aggression leaves 1 dead.By Tova Dvorin and Hezki Ezra-First Publish: 7/15/2014, 8:09 PM / Last Update: 7/15/2014, 8:19 PM-IsraelNationalNews
Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu addressed the security situation in Israel on Tuesday night, threatening a full ground invasion in the event that escalation from Gaza continues."If Islamic Jihad and Hamas do not respond to the Egyptian[-mediated] ceasefire, I will tell the IDF to act against them with great force," he said. "And this is what we did: the IDF bombed many terror targets in Gaza, the attacks will continue.""Hamas chose to continue the conflict and it will pay the price for it," he continued. "Anyone who tries to harm the citizens of Israel, Israel will hurt them.""For as long as there is no cease-fire, we will respond with fire [of our own]," Netanyahu added.The Prime Minister vowed to take all necessary measures to protect Israeli civilians.He added that "this campaign has several fronts: the operational front, the political front and the home front. We operate in accordance with our determination, judgment and experience to protect Israeli citizens.""It would be better to resolve it politically but Hamas does not leave us any other choice but to expand and intensify the campaign," he continued. "We will act to restore peace to the citizens of Israel." Netanyahu also implied that the operation, which is finishing up its eighth day, will only intensify."These are moments when decisions must be made patiently and not recklessly, and I know you trust me to arrive at the decision that would bring peace," he said. "We will do everything necessary to ensure that calm will return to Israeli citizens."Hamas and Islamic Jihad fired more than 100 rockets on Israeli civilians on Tuesday, despite Israel's agreement to adhere to an Egyptian-brokered truce deal early Tuesday morning. Hamas categorically rejected the cease-fire in multiple statements, insisting that the terms of the agreement 'did not apply' to them.The latest volley of rockets left one Israeli dead, a 38 year-old man serving food to soldiers near the Gaza border.The Israeli Air Force responded by launching 30 airstrikes on terrorist targets in Gaza.
Hamas not interested in peace as ceasefire rejected: Foreign Minister Baird-The Canadian Press By Terry Pedwell, The Canadian Press | JULY 15,14-YahooNews
OTTAWA - Canada's foreign affairs minister says the refusal by Hamas to honour an Egyptian-sponsored ceasefire in Gaza makes it clear the group has no interest in peace.Israel resumed bombardment of Gaza on Tuesday after Hamas rejected the truce plan and instead unleashed more rocket barrages at the Jewish state.Minister John Baird told a news conference the battle isn't between the Palestinian people and Israel or even the Palestinian Authority and Israel — rather it's a fight between Hamas and a country trying to defend its people."It is a conflict between an international terrorist organization and the Jewish state," he said Tuesday. "Hamas started this bloodshed. Hamas can end it."Hostilities between the two sides escalated this month after three Israeli teenagers were killed, and a Palestinian teen died in a revenge attack.In a statement issued Tuesday, Hamas said it was not compelled to abide by the ceasefire since it was excluded from consultations on the proposal.Baird said he regrets the loss of life in the region and feels the sympathy everyone should feel toward the innocent victims of the conflict, but said Israel has been left with no choice but to defend itself."I just can't imagine the horror if you're a Palestinian mother or father and your next-door neighbour is a Hamas terrorist leader, launching rockets from just a few metres from your house," said Baird."How could you not have great compassion for those who have been tragically killed in war?"But blame for the deaths, he said, lies squarely at the feet of Hamas.Nearly 200 Palestinians have been killed in strikes in Gaza since Israel launched the campaign over a week ago to stop the rocket fire.Gaza militants have reportedly fired more than 1,100 rockets toward Israel in the fighting, although Israel's so-called "Iron Dome" defence system has prevented many of the projectiles from reaching their intended targets.At least 15 Israelis, including several children, have also been injured by rocket fire from Gaza, said police.Tuesday marked the first time an Israeli had been killed in the attacks.Police said a man in his 30s who was delivering food to soldiers died when a mortar was launched at the Erez Crossing with Gaza.The United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees, or UNRWA, has called the Israeli attacks against civilians and civilian infrastructure in Gaza contrary to international humanitarian law.UNRWA said there are about 17,000 refugees taking shelter in 20 schools in Gaza, and the airstrikes have damaged dozens of buildings, including medical clinics and schools.The bloodshed in the Middle East has also sparked a war of words in Ottawa between the Harper Conservatives and the opposition parties, with accusations lobbed from all parties that their rivals were using the conflict to score political points.Liberal Party Leader Justin Trudeau issued a news release commending Israel for having tried to enter into a ceasefire and condemning Hamas for rejecting it."Hamas is a terrorist organization and must cease its rocket attacks immediately,” said Trudeau.But Baird criticized Trudeau for taking too long to issue such an equivocal statement, complaining in French that the sentiment was only expressed after seven days while he Conservatives had indicated strong support for Israel since the most recent conflict erupted a week ago.The Conservative Party also condemned a statement from a Liberal candidate in the Toronto-area riding of Mississauga Centre, calling former Liberal MP Omar Alghabra's words "offensive and ignorant."Alghabra had earlier posted a picture on his Facebook page of a bombed Gaza neighbourhood, and denounced the Israeli bombing campaign. The post was no longer publicly available on his Facebook page late Tuesday."We are urging Justin Trudeau to condemn his remarks and demand an apology," Conservative Party Communications Director Cory Hann said in a note to supporters linked to a fundraising campaign.Similarly, the Tories earlier issued a statement on Twitter that accused the Liberals of not standing with Israel — a tweet that was linked to a Conservative party website that asked for personal information and includes a "Donate Now" button at the top of the page.The opposition New Democrats also got into the mix over the weekend, criticizing a statement by Prime Minister Stephen Harper that expressed Canada's unwavering support of Israel while making no mention of the loss of Palestinian lives.On his Facebook page, New Democrat MP Charlie Angus called Harper "thuggish" for cheering on Israel's leaders.His remarks were followed by condemnation from Costas Menegakis, the parliamentary secretary to the immigration minister, who accused Angus of "attacking the people of Israel" by using inflammatory language.
