RUSSIA MIGHT NUKE ISIS ANYTIME NOW
ISLAMIC CULT-MODERATES ARE NOT MUSLIMS
28 And when these things begin to come to pass,(ALL THE PROPHECY SIGNS FROM THE BIBLE) then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption (RAPTURE) draweth nigh.
29 And he spake to them a parable; Behold the fig tree,(ISRAEL) and all the trees;(ALL INDEPENDENT COUNTRIES)
30 When they now shoot forth, ye see and know of your own selves that summer is now nigh at hand.(ISRAEL LITERALLY BECAME AND INDEPENDENT COUNTRY JUST BEFORE SUMMER IN MAY 14,1948.)
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.
30 And I will shew wonders in the heavens and in the earth, blood, and fire, and pillars of smoke.(ATOMIC BOMB AFFECT)
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.

France is Israel’s largest source of aliyah for 2nd straight year-Russia saw most dramatic increase in immigration to Jewish state, according to annual Jewish Agency figures-By JTA and Times of Israel staff December 22, 2015, 10:22 pm-THE TIMES OF ISRAEL
For the second consecutive year, France is the largest provider of Jewish immigrants to Israel with a record total of 7,328 newcomers in 2015.The number of French citizens who immigrated to Israel under the Law of Return for Jews from January 1 to December 1 constituted a 10 percent increase over the 6,661 French olim who came during the corresponding period last year, according to Jewish Agency for Israel figures obtained Tuesday by JTA. In all of 2014, a total of 7,238 olim came from France.Last year’s total, which was the highest since the establishment of the State of Israel in 1948, was surpassed last month with the arrival of 468 French Jews. According to the Jewish Agency, French aliyah has increased because of a mix of factors, including the community’s fear of anti-Semitic attacks, economic stagnation in France and its members’ attachment to Israel.The number of French Jews opting to leave an increasingly hostile France for Israel has increased steadily but significantly over the past few years. In 2012, 1,900 Jews came; in 2013, 3,293. The 2014/15 figures represent a nearly 300 percent increase to the number who came in 2012 and make France the world’s largest source of new Israeli immigrants.The most dramatic increase in aliyah this year came from Russia, which provided more than 6,000 olim in the first 11 months of 2015 — some 44 percent over the 4,458 who came in the corresponding period last year. In total, slightly more than 5,000 came from Russia last year.Russian aliyah increased following a financial crisis last year that halved the ruble’s value against the dollar and amid lingering concerns among Russian Jews over rising nationalism and undemocratic practices, according to Jewish Agency Chairman Natan Sharansky.Aliyah from Ukraine, which is also suffering from a financial recession following a bloody revolution last year and the secession of two pro-Russian eastern enclaves, increased to 6,848 people this year compared to the 6,149 who came in all of 2014.The United States has provided Israel with 2,730 olim this year compared to 2,940 in the corresponding period last year.
Hungary: Labeling of settlement goods is counterproductive-Initiative ‘merely substitutes real actions,’ weakens EU’s position in peace talks, Budapest foreign ministry tells Times of Israel-By Raphael Ahren December 22, 2015, 9:35 pm-THE TIMES OF ISRAEL
Hungary is sticking to its criticism of the European Union’s policy of labeling settlement goods, arguing that it is counterproductive to the body’s bid to become a significant player in the Middle East, and does nothing to advance Israeli-Palestinian reconciliation.“Hungary does not consider that the indication of origin of products from Israeli settlements is effective and timely, as it weakens the position of the EU in the Middle East peace process and does not contribute to the practical solution of the conflict,” the Foreign Ministry in Budapest told The Times of Israel on Tuesday.The statement appears to contradict the stance of the EU foreign policy czar, Federica Mogherini, who last week said that all member states are “united” in support for the measure. According to guidelines published last month by the European Commission, goods manufactured over the pre-1967 lines may not state that they were “Made in Israel.” Rather, they should be labeled with a formulation such as “Product from the West Bank (Israeli settlements),” the Commission suggested.“The European Commission expects all member states to comply with EU legislation,” an official in the union’s delegation to Israel told The Times of Israel at the time.While Hungary supports an “increased role” for the EU in the peace process, it believes that requiring special labels for Israeli products made beyond the pre-1967 lines “merely substitutes real actions,” its foreign ministry said.Hungarian Foreign Minister Péter Szijjártó made this position clear in meetings with both Israeli and Palestinian officials last month, the ministry added.Szijjártó declared during a visit to Jerusalem on November 16 that he considers labeling “an inefficient instrument” that is “irrational” and “does not contribute to a solution [to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict], but causes damage.” Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu subsequently praised him for his “strong statement.” The Hungarian foreign ministry vowed Tuesday to continue stating its position in the various EU forums. Other EU member states have taken a “similar approach,” the ministry noted, citing “published statements” but refusing to elaborate.In fact, few other states have come out as clearly and publicly as Hungary against settlement labeling.While Greek Foreign Minister Nikos Kotzias sent a letter to Netanyahu telling him Athens was opposed to the EU’s move and did not think it would do much to advance the peace process, Athens never publicly disowned labeling. Since the country doesn’t import any goods from the settlements, it does not face the questions of whether to implement the EU’s directive or whether to defy it.Hungary does import some items from the settlements, but they make for a marginal part of the country’s trade with Israel.Last week, the lower house of the Czech parliament passed two resolutions criticizing the labeling, and calling on the government to reject the measures.Some German lawmakers officials likewise said they deem labeling unwise, but the government later clarified that it backs the EU’s directive.At a meeting last week of the EU’s Foreign Affairs Council, Mogherini briefly addressed the controversy surrounding labeling.“We had an exchange of views in this respect with the ministers, and we commonly decided that it was important also for me to pass this message publicly that the Council and the European Union stay united on these technical guidelines on indication of origin, which is in no way a boycott and should in no way be interpreted as one,” she said.Israel fiercely rejects the EU’s labeling policy and threatened to cut off ties with the union’s regarding the peace process. However, last week top Israeli officials met with representatives of the Middle East Quartet, including an EU official, to discuss regional developments and the peace process.
Ancient inscription points to Jewish past for early Christian site-Marble slab with 7 lines of Aramaic and Hebrew text found at biblical town on banks of Sea of Galilee may be from Byzantine-era synagogue. ‘There’s been nothing like this before,’ says archaeologist-By Ilan Ben Zion December 21, 2015, 2:23 pm-THE TIMES OF ISRAEL
When Haifa University archaeologist Haim Cohen called the head of the Golan Heights regional council Eli Malka earlier this month, he said he had a Hanukkah present for him.“The good news: We’ve found a new 1,600-year-old Jewish settlement on the shores of the Sea of Galilee,” the archaeologist recounted in a phone interview with The Times of Israel. “The bad news: They haven’t been paying municipal taxes.” Cohen’s team recently unearthed a monumental Hebrew inscription at Kursi, on the eastern side of the Sea of Galilee on the Golan Heights, providing conclusive evidence that the Roman- and Byzantine-era town mentioned in the New Testament and Talmud was Jewish.Digs this month at the previously obscure site yielded a village with a large public building — possibly a synagogue — and an enormous inner harbor for large ships.More impressive, however, were seven lines of Hebrew and Aramaic text carved into a large slab of imported Greek marble. It includes the words “marmaria,” “amen,” “the holy king” and “the merciful,” researchers said.Excavations at the site are funded by the Avery-Tsui Foundation, and headed by Cohen with the collaboration of the Israel Antiquities Authories and the Israel Parks Authority. High school student volunteers also took part in the dig.Cohen was reluctant to reveal much about the inscription until experts had a chance to study the text more thoroughly. He did suggest, however, that “marmaria” could refer either to a type of marble, or — more intriguingly — “the rabbi of Mary.”Haggai Misgav, a Hebrew University expert in ancient inscriptions who studied the slab on site, said the text was a standard kind of dedicatory text from a synagogue, dismissing as unlikely the possibility that it was from a Judeo-Christian house of worship.The script used in the text was highly reminiscent of the Trumpeting Place inscription found at the base of Jerusalem’s Temple Mount, suggesting the preservation of highly skilled Hebrew masons over the centuries. While it likely dates to around the 4th or 5th centuries CE, the village probably predates it by centuries.The fact that it was carved into expensive stone, rather than embedded in a mosaic floor as was common in that period, was even more remarkable, Cohen said.“There’s been nothing like this before. We didn’t know something like this existed,” he said, calling the discovery of Kursi’s Jewish history “an exceptional accomplishment.”The site is associated with the account in the Gospels of Jesus exorcising the Gerasene demoniac, casting the demons into a herd of pigs. Early Christians venerated the place and established a monastery there. The remains of the monastery were found in 1970 during the construction of a road, and excavated in the years following.——————Follow Ilan Ben Zion on Twitter and Facebook.
Netanyahu signs natural gas deal, passing major hurdle-But critics vow to take fight to court, signaling year-long battle over deal with conglomerate to extract gas from offshore fields will continue-By Raoul Wootliff and Melanie Lidman December 17, 2015, 3:00 pm-THE TIMES OF ISRAEL
After months of intense debate and numerous bureaucratic and legislative hurdles, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu signed Thursday a controversial deal on Israel’s newly found gas fields in the Mediterranean.The agreement paves the way for a consortium of Noble Energy and the Delek Group to begin work on extracting gas from the massive Leviathan gas field off Israel’s coast, which is thought to contain some 22 trillion cubic feet of gas, and is expected to transform the country into a regional energy powerhouse. However, activists and politicians against the deal wasted no time in vowing to take the agreement to the High Court, signaling that the fight over the move was far from over.During a ceremony at the Ne’ot Hovav industrial zone near Beersheba, Netanyahu called the gas “a gift from God” and said the deal would pave the way to energy independence.“This plan is important to our economy because it gives us a much cheaper source of energy,” he said. “It makes us, if not an energy superpower, then definitely an important international force.”The move comes after a year of performing political cartwheels to override Knesset and public opposition to the deal, which critics claim will create a monopoly in the gas market and lead to higher prices for Israeli consumers.In a reference to ongoing calls to renegotiate the deal Netanyahu said, “There is no way to open up these additional gas fields without this plan. This is the only option.” Netanyahu was able to sign the deal after invoking a never-before-used clause to override an antitrust ruling against the deal by declaring it an issue of national security.“Unfortunately, this issue has become a political and populist discussion,” he said Thursday. “This plan is vital to our security, because we don’t want to be left with one power plant that’s under fire; we need multiple gas fields.”In addition to security considerations, Netanyahu said the deal was also an issue of international diplomacy.“This is essential for our foreign relations. Many countries have expressed interest [in buying the natural gas]. Not just Greece and Cyprus, whose leaders I am meeting in a few weeks. Jordan, and of course the Palestinian Authority as well, have shown interest. Turkey and Egypt are also interested, and we are in discussion with them,” he said.But critics have vowed to continue their struggle against the deal.Opposition leader Isaac Herzog said Netanyahu’s use of Clause 52 of the Restrictive Trade Practices (antitrust) Law was “a cynical ploy that takes advantage of our security situation.”He said his Zionist Union faction would bring the issue before the High Court, “in order to save Israel’s economy and preserve the rights of the Israeli public.” Former environmental activist MK Yael Cohen-Paran (Zionist Union) warned that the struggle is far from over. “We will continue in the courts and by every lawful means,” she said in a statement. “The evidence we have accumulated in the past proves time after time that the use of Article 52 is not legal, and that public interests are being trampled in favor of tycoons.”Cohen-Paran slammed Netanyahu for “ignoring the recommendations of the Economic Affairs Committee, and the security, economic, and energy interests of the State of Israel.” She also pushed the Bank of Israel and the Finance Ministry to increase their transparency about the details of the gas deal.Netanyahu was forced to pursue the use of Clause 52 after then-antitrust commissioner David Gilo ruled last year that the Delek-Noble conglomerate that is developing Leviathan may constitute a monopoly, sparking a vociferous national debate on the terms given to the energy companies.Gilo resigned in May over Netanyahu’s decision to push the current deal through.Former economy minister Aryeh Deri, not wanting to pay a political price for the gas deal but also not wanting to stand in its way, resigned his post last month, allowing Netanyahu to take over the ministry and sign the deal himself.Netanyahu previously failed over several attempts to pass a Knesset vote transferring Deri’s “Article 52 authority,” as it is known, to the broader cabinet.Under the terms of the outline, the Delek Group will sell its holdings in the Tamar gas field, as well as two smaller, as-yet undeveloped fields about 120 kilometers off the Haifa coast called Karish and Tanin, within six years and Noble Energy will gradually reduce its holdings in Tamar to no more than 25 percent within the same time frame. During those six years, prices for natural gas will be regulated.Professor Zvi Eckstein, the deputy governor of the Bank of Israel between 2006 and 2011, said the gas deal will bring cheaper energy, cleaner energy, a lot of billions of shekels in taxes, but that the agreement should have been hammered out five years ago when the massive gas fields were first discovered. Eckstein, who is now the dean of the Arison School of Business and the School of Economics at IDC Herzliya, said that the gas deal can improve regional ties with countries like Jordan, Egypt, and Turkey. While Egypt recently discovered a massive offshore gas field, it will take years to develop and Israel can provide much-needed gas in the meantime.He said he believes Israel could start exporting natural gas within a year once the High Court of Justice approves the deal that Netanyahu signed on Thursday.US company Noble Energy and the Israel-based Delek Group have been producing gas from the Tamar field off the Israeli coast since 2013. They have also teamed up to develop the offshore Leviathan field, believed to be the largest in the Mediterranean until a recent Egyptian find which dwarfed Leviathan.Oshrit Gan-El, a spokesperson for the Green Course environmental activist group, which specializes in the gas deal, predicted that the agreement would not stand.“We’re not surprised [Netanyahu signed the deal]; it’s another step in the chain of antidemocratic actions that we’ve seen for this gas deal,” she said. “We think that this deal will collapse in the coming months, there’s no balance between interests of the public and the interests of the companies.”She added that the group will support all of the petitions filed in court against the deal.Green Course has been part of a number of environmental organizations organizing weekly protests against the gas deal on Saturday nights. This coming Saturday night, they will protest in Netanya in front of the home of Yitzhak Tshuva, the owner of Delek Group.Tamar Pileggi contributed to this report.
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)
UN demands Syria allow urgent aid to 13.5 million people-Security Council resolution says 6.5 million are internally displaced, 393,700 trapped in besieged areas-By AP December 22, 2015, 10:50 pm-THE TIMES OF ISRAEL
UNITED NATIONS — The United Nations Security Council has unanimously approved a resolution demanding that all combatants in Syria allow the urgent delivery of desperately needed humanitarian aid to more than 13.5 million people.The resolution expresses “outrage” at the escalating violence in Syria and extends the authorization for cross-border aid deliveries without government approval until Jan. 10, 2017. The council said it was “gravely distressed by the continued deterioration of the devastating humanitarian situation in Syria.”Of the more than 13.5 million people in need of food and medical assistance, it said 6.5 million are internally displaced, 4.5 million including Palestinian refugees are living in hard-to-reach areas, and 393,700 are trapped in besieged areas.The council also expressed grave concern that extremist groups are hindering aid deliveries.The International Organization for Migration said Tuesday that its statistics show the number of people fleeing conflict or poverty who have arrived in the European Union by sea this year has hit the one million mark.Most people arriving in Europe are now entering Greece after taking short trips on rickety boats or inflatable rafts from Turkey. The IOM says more than 820,000 came that way in 2015, many fleeing the wars in Syria and Iraq. As winter closes in, the colder weather appears to have slowed the flow somewhat, although this is unlikely to last long.
UN condemns fighting by Syria and rebels on Golan-Unanimous Security Council resolution sponsored by US, Russia reveals fears of Syrian-Israeli escalation-By Agencies and Times of Israel staff December 22, 2015, 9:16 pm
UNITED NATIONS — The UN Security Council has strongly condemned the fighting and use of heavy weapons by Syrian government troops and armed groups on the Golan Heights.The area that has separated Syrian and Israeli forces since 1974 is supposed to be a demilitarized zone.A resolution co-sponsored by Russia and the United States and adopted unanimously by the council on Tuesday calls on parties to the Syrian conflict to halt military activity there.The resolution extends the mandate of the nearly 800-strong UN peacekeeping force on the Golan Heights until June 30, 2016.The Security Council echoed Secretary General Ban Ki-moon’s findings that the ongoing military activities have the potential to escalate Syrian-Israeli tensions.It reaffirmed its readiness to impose sanctions on individuals or groups supporting extremists. In recent years, the Golan has seen fierce fighting between pro-Assad forces and an al-Qaeda-affiliated extremist group, al-Nusra Front, among other rebels. Gun, mortar and rocket fire has occasionally crossed the border, leading to Israeli retaliatory strikes against Syrian army positions.Meanwhile, the Syrian side of the plateau has seen a growing presence of Hezbollah-allied terror cells backed by Iran. An Iranian general, Mohammed Allahdadi, was killed in a reported Israeli airstrike while coordinating these activities in January. Early Sunday, a purported Israeli missile attack on a Damascus suburb killed Samir Kuntar, a Hezbollah-linked terror chief who spent 29 years in an Israeli prison for is part in the kidnapping-murder of four Israelis in 1979.
