ISRAEL SATAN COMES AGAINST
1 CHRONICLES 21:1
1 And Satan stood up against Israel, and provoked David to number Israel.
1 Now the LORD had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father’s house, unto a land that I (GOD) will shew thee:
2 And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing:
3 And I will bless them that bless thee,(ISRAELIS) and curse (DESTROY) him that curseth thee:(DESTROY THEM) and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.
11 Behold, all they that were incensed against thee (ISRAEL) shall be ashamed and confounded: they shall be as nothing;(DESTROYED) and they that strive with thee shall perish.(ISRAEL HATERS WILL BE TOTALLY DESTROYED)
7 Alas! for that day is great, so that none is like it: it is even the time of Jacob’s trouble;(ISRAEL) but he shall be saved out of it.
1 And at that time shall Michael(ISRAELS WAR ANGEL) stand up, the great prince which standeth for the children of thy people:(ISRAEL) and there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation(May 14,48) even to that same time: and at that time thy people shall be delivered, every one that shall be found written in the book.
4 But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro,(WORLD TRAVEL,IMMIGRATION) and knowledge shall be increased.(COMPUTERS,CHIP IMPLANTS ETC)
Anti-Semitic notes left in mailboxes in Florida community-‘X-mas is not for the Jews,’ reads message delivered to homes of Jewish families-By JTA December 16, 2015, 8:16 am-the times of israel
Anti-Semitic messages were left in the mailboxes of Jewish families in a gated community in South Florida.The messages left in at least two of the mailboxes in Cooper City in Broward County over the weekend read “X-mas is not for the Jews.” The words “not” and “Jews” were underlined, the Florida Sun-Sentinel reported Monday.The notes come on the heels of an anti-Muslim epithet spray-painted on the wall of a local Muslim school, according to the newspaper.“It’s had the opposite effect of whatever they intended because I had an outpouring of support from people of all faiths — it’s turned a negative into a positive,” Greg Popowitz told the newspaper, which described his home holiday decorations as including white lights on palm trees, a Jewish star dangling from a lantern and an inflatable 6-foot-high bear holding a dreidel.The note left in the mailbox of a local rabbi, who drives a van with a menorah strapped on top, read “WTF is on your Roof? #X-Mas is Better.”“I don’t know if it’s silly kids or one person who is a hater,” Malky Goodman, the rabbi’s wife, told the newspaper. “There’s people who do stuff for hate for no reason.”Residents in the Monterra development reportedly have complained about a holiday display that included a Hanukkah menorah next to the Christmas tree.
Spanish street sign honoring local Jew vandalized-Plaque for David Haim Melul knocked down in dispute over Torremolinos Hanukkah celebrations-By JTA December 16, 2015, 6:51 am-the times of israel
A street name sign honoring a Spanish Jew was damaged in the southern Spanish city of Torremolinos amid a debate over the municipality’s decision to celebrate Hanukkah.The sign named for David Haim Melul, the founder of the local Jewish community, was knocked down last week, two months after it was put up, the online edition of the local newspaper Diario el Sur reported.The vandalism occurred as local politicians were debating the placing this month of a neon sign reading “Happy Hanukkah,” which critics said was in violation of the separation between religion and government.The criticism comes from delegates of the center-right Popular Party to the municipal government of Torremolinos, where one of the ruling parties is the left-leaning Spanish Socialist Workers’ Party, the newspaper reported. The local politicians are unhappy over the absence of a municipal nativity scene to celebrate Christmas. Torremolinos has about 800 Jews.Elsewhere in Spain, the northern municipality of Estella-Lizarra celebrated Hanukkah for the first time last week. Estella-Lizarra is one of the 24 municipalities that form Spain’s Rede de Juderias — a network of locales that was formed in 1995 and whose members have undertaken to restore their Jewish heritage and celebrate it.Spain was home to hundreds of thousands of Jews before it expelled them or forced those who stayed to convert during the Spanish Inquisition. Approximately 45,000 Jews live there today.The municipally organized Hanukkah celebration at Estella-Lizarra, where only a handful of Jews live, was the initiative of a local Jewish couple, Yosef Rajmiel Fernández and Rivka Herrera Gonzalez, the local Diario den Avarra daily reported Sunday.One of the most colorful Hanukkah events this year took place in Toledo near Madrid, which used to be a major Jewish hub. The municipality hung neon Hanukkah decorations over streets in its old Jewish Quarter and projected them onto the roads. The celebration began with the lighting of the first candle of Hanukkah on a large menorah on Dec. 6 at what used to be the Synagogue of El Transito, which was converted into a church and currently serves as a museum.

3 A fire devoureth (ATOMIC BOMB) before them;(RUSSIAN-ARAB-MUSLIM ARMIES AGAINST ISRAEL) and behind them a flame burneth: the land is as the garden of Eden before them, and behind them a desolate wilderness; yea, and nothing shall escape them.

12 And this shall be the plague wherewith the LORD will smite all the people that have fought against Jerusalem; Their flesh shall consume away while they stand upon their feet,(DISOLVED FROM ATOMIC BOMB) and their eyes shall consume away in their holes,(DISOLVED FROM ATOMIC BOMB) and their tongue shall consume away in their mouth.(DISOLVED FROM ATOMIC BOMB)(BECAUSE NUKES HAVE BEEN USED ON ISRAELS ENEMIES)(GOD PROTECTS ISRAEL AND ALWAYS WILL)
13 And it shall come to pass in that day, that a great tumult from the LORD shall be among them; and they shall lay hold every one on the hand of his neighbour, and his hand shall rise up against the hand of his neighbour.(1/2-3 BILLION DIE IN WW3)(THIS IS AN ATOMIC BOMB EFFECT)
47 And say to the forest of the south, Hear the word of the LORD; Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I will kindle a fire in thee, and it shall devour every green tree in thee, and every dry tree: the flaming flame shall not be quenched, and all faces from the south to the north shall be burned therein.
18 Neither their silver nor their gold shall be able to deliver them in the day of the LORD'S wrath; but the whole land shall be devoured by the fire of his jealousy: for he shall make even a speedy riddance of all them that dwell in the land.
1 For, behold, the day cometh, that shall burn as an oven;(FROM ATOMIC BOMBS) and all the proud, yea, and all that do wickedly, shall be stubble: and the day that cometh shall burn them up, saith the LORD of hosts, that it shall leave them neither root nor branch.
And here are the bounderies of the land that Israel will inherit either through war or peace or God in the future. God says its Israels land and only Israels land. They will have every inch God promised them of this land in the future.

What Jewish groups have (and haven’t) said about Trump-A look at the responses of various organizations to the Republican candidate’s Muslim comments-By Uriel Heilman December 16, 2015, 6:17 am-the times of israel
NEW YORK (JTA) – Donald Trump’s call last week to bar all Muslims from entering the United States “until our country’s representatives can figure out what is going on” has set off a deluge of criticism in America and around the world, from US House Speaker Paul Ryan to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.“Prime Minister Netanyahu rejects Donald Trump’s recent remarks about Muslims,” Netanyahu’s office said in a statement. “The State of Israel respects all religion and strictly adheres to the rights of all its citizens.”Trump’s December 7 remark also spurred numerous Jewish organizations to speak up.Here’s a roundup of some of the more notable Jewish organizational responses, as well as some of those that have stayed silent.Jewish defense organizations:Anti-Defamation League CEO Jonathan Greenblatt: “A plan that singles out Muslims and denies them entry to the U.S. based on their religion is deeply offensive and runs contrary to our nation’s deepest values.”American Jewish Committee Associate Executive Director for Policy Jason Isaacson: “We are deeply disturbed by the nativist racism inherent in the candidate’s latest remarks.”B’nai B’rith International: “Singling out an entire religious community for diminished rights amounts to bigotry, and it should not be accepted.”Umbrella organizations:Jewish Council for Public Affairs, the public affairs arm of the organized Jewish community: “There is no place in America, a nation founded on religious freedom, for discrimination on the basis of religion — or any other immutable characteristic, for that matter. … Recent statements are misleading to voters, because they imply that sacrificing our values will advance our security, which is a fallacy.”Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations, the umbrella organization of the American Jewish community on foreign policy matters, did not issue any public statement after Trump’s remarks. But reached by telephone, Executive Vice Chairman Malcolm Hoenlein told JTA, “Obviously we reject what he said. It’s a given.”Religious organizations:Orthodox Union Executive Vice President Allen Fagin: “We call on all Americans to reaffirm that discrimination of any group solely upon religion is wrong and anathema to the great traditions of religious and personal freedoms upon which this country was founded.”Rabbinical Council of America (Orthodox) President Rabbi Shalom Baum: “The complex issues that face us in ensuring the safety and security from terror of innocents and free societies throughout the world need to be addressed, but need to be done in sober and responsible ways. We call upon all Americans and the United States government to recognize the threats posed by radical Islamists, while preserving and protecting the rights of all people who seek peace, no matter how they worship God.”Rabbinical Assembly (Conservative): “We recognize the need to be vigilant in providing security and protection from those who seek to do our country harm, but discriminating against an entire religion is wrong and dangerous.”Religious Action Center of Reform Judaism Director Rabbi Jonah Dov Pesner: “While we take no position on Mr. Trump’s candidacy for president, we condemn in the strongest terms his comments calling for barring the entry of Muslims into the United States. As Jews who too often suffered persecution because of our faith, we cannot abide religious bigotry.”Reconstructionist Rabbinical Association: “We call on all Jews and all Americans to denounce hate speech and fear-mongering against Muslims in politics and the media, and to reach out in support of Muslim Americans in every way that we can.”Political organizations:J Street, the “pro-Israel, pro-peace” lobbying group that has positioned itself as a left-wing alternative to AIPAC: “Donald Trump’s statement today calling for a ‘total and complete shutdown’ of Muslim immigration to the United States is repugnant and unacceptable. This statement is the latest in a string of deeply bigoted and Islamophobic remarks by Mr. Trump and others seeking to stoke and take political advantage of rank hatred.”National Jewish Democratic Council: “It is long past time for leading Republicans, especially Jewish Republicans, to strongly speak out against the bigotry coming from its leading candidate. No single religion is our enemy — terrorists and all those who seek to destroy us are our enemies.”Which Jewish groups of note have not responded? AIPAC – the American Israel Public Affairs Committee: The nation’s premier pro-Israel lobbying group does not frequently make public statements on matters not directly connected to the initiatives it backs in Congress. But the organization occasionally does wade into partisan political waters. Back in March, AIPAC in a statement applauded Netanyahu’s controversial speech to Congress warning of the perils of the Iran deal. (Netanyahu consulted with Republicans in Congress, but not the White House, when scheduling his congressional address.) And three weeks later, when Netanyahu reaffirmed his commitment to a two-state solution after vowing during Israel’s election campaign days earlier that a Palestinian state would not emerge on his watch, AIPAC issued a statement expressing dismay that Obama administration officials expressed skepticism of Netanyahu’s seeming about-face. On Trump, AIPAC has been silent; a spokesman told JTA the organization’s focus is U.S.-Israel relations.Zionist Organization of America: This group on the right end of the American Jewish political spectrum on Israel rarely misses an opportunity to promote its views, issuing statements on everything from what public officials fail to say (Dec. 10: UN’s Ban Ki-Moon Condemns Terror Attacks On Civilians in Many Countries – But Not In Israel) to little-noticed initiatives the organization itself undertakes (Sept. 25: ZOA Testifies to U. Cal. Regents: Adopt State Dept. Def. of Anti-Semitism). While the ZOA has not addressed Trump’s call to bar Muslims entry to America, the organization issued a statement about Syrian refugees after Trump made his comments. “ZOA: Don’t Bring ISIS/Terrorist Infiltrated, Hamas Supporting, Jew-Hating, Syrian Muslims Into the US,” reads the headline of ZOA’s Dec. 8 news release. “The Zionist Organization of America (ZOA) strongly opposes bringing more Syrian Muslim ‘refugees’ into the United States,” wrote the group’s president, Morton Klein. “Syrian immigrants pose a grave danger to all Americans – and an even greater danger to American Jews, for a host of reasons.”Republican Jewish Coalition: The nation’s premier Republican Jewish group has opted to stay silent on the remarks by Trump, who has led the Republican presidential field in national polls for most of the past few months. RJC officials did not respond to a JTA request for comment.Jewish Federations of North America: While the umbrella group for North American Jewish federations tries to stay out of the partisan fray, it has weighed in on political matters when it felt the issue merited it. For example, on Dec. 10, JFNA rebuked Israel’s chief rabbi for criticizing an Israeli politician’s visit to a non-Orthodox Jewish day school in New York. In its statement, JFNA said: “Israel’s Ashkenazi Chief Rabbi David Lau was wrong to criticize Minister Naftali Bennett for the latter’s visit to a Solomon Schechter community day school in Manhattan.” On Trump, JFNA has issued no statement, and a representative told JTA it has no plans to do so.
Plunging into hell of Auschwitz, ‘Son of Saul’ confounds-Academy Award nominee film haunts and provokes with its stark portrait of a Jewish Sonderkommando on a mission to bury his son-By Jake Coyle December 16, 2015, 8:50 am-the times of israel
NEW YORK (AP) — The power and horror of “Son of Saul,” a visceral plunge into the life of a Sonderkommando at Auschwitz-Birkenau, has left audiences staggering since it first debuted at the Cannes Film Festival in May.It won the Grand Prix there, earned the praise of “Shoah” director Claude Landzmann and announced its maker and co-writer, the 38-year-old Hungarian-born Laszlo Nemes, as an uncommonly assured first-time feature filmmaker. The film follows a Sonderkommando (a Jewish prisoner forced to work at the camp), played by Geza Rohrig, who believes he sees his son among the exterminated and seeks to smuggle the body in order to give him a religious burial.“By making a portrait of a man in the midst of hell, we give the measure of humanity,” says Nemes. “To see whether there can be humanity beyond inhumanity. There’s nothing left. Can there still be an inner God?”It’s not for the faint of heart. “Son of Saul,” the favorite to win the best foreign language film at the Academy Awards, is a deliberate rejection of less severe Holocaust films. It’s a harrowing depiction of concentration camps’ machinery in action.“I’m interested in evil,” Nemes said in an interview earlier this fall. “A sort of evil that cannot be understood at a glance or represented. Exactly the contrary of our representation of evil in a modern world, especially in cinema.”Shot on 35mm film, “Son of Saul” stitches together lengthy tracking shots that stay close to Rohrig’s Saul. Much of the camp’s surrounding activity is blurry in the background — a second layer of action that required its own director. The film never depicts the gas chamber, but sits right outside the door.Nemes, who has ancestors who were killed at Auschwitz, wanted to make a film that reminded viewers of the reality of the Holocaust. While the film has been met by widespread acclaim, it has also drawn skepticism in some quarters for its blend of historical atrocity and a technically cunning film-making that, in staying with Saul over a day and a half, bares no context of the Holocaust.“Is that the place for a thriller? Was there suspense inside Auschwitz?” asked Film Comment in a critical review. New York Times film critic Manohla Dargis called it “a radically dehistoricized, intellectually repellent movie.”Nemes confidently brushes aside any such criticisms. “She must feel alone,” he says of Dargis, alluding to broader positive reaction.“The only thing I know is that by making this film, I tried to give the dignity back to the dead and the dying,” says Nemes. “I don’t think I ever lost from my aim the fact that I was speaking about the destruction of the European Jews. It’s in my blood. I will leave a trace for my family that were scattered into the Polish rivers.”It took Nemes six years to make “Son of Saul,” which began to form for him when he read vivid personal testimonies of Sonderkommandos from Auschwitz. “I always wondered what it would be to go from the train to the gas chamber,” he says, “what this dusty road looks like when you’re there.”Nemes, who moved to France with his mother at age 12, worked up to “Son of Saul” with a two-year apprenticeship with the existential Hungarian filmmaker Bela Tarr. After failing to find financing in France and Israel, Nemes made the film with a minuscule budget of about $1.5 million, with support from the Hungarian National Film Fund and the Conference on Jewish Material Claims Against Germany.“I didn’t want to give the impression that it’s a first feature,” says Nemes, who’s now working on a pre-World War I thriller set in 1910 Budapest that he says is partly about “the death of civilization.” “‘I’m not that young. It’s not a 25 year old who makes this film.” Saul’s desperate mission may be delusional. Other prisoners doubt whether he could even recognize his son, years after last seeing him. But his struggle – impossible and doomed – is mad resistance to the madness all around him.“The experience of the camp is very remote to this generation,” Nemes says. “If this world is not aware of the temptation to destroy itself on an industrial level, it cannot have a future. It’s about what’s inside the human civilization.”
Three soldiers lightly wounded in West Bank operation-IDF says troops in Qalandiya may have been hit by friendly fire, as 2 Palestinians killed when trying to ram soldiers with cars-By Itamar Sharon December 16, 2015, 3:37 am-the times of israel
