MINISTERS GIVE GREEN LIGHT TO PUT 70 MILLION DOLLARS INTO SETTLEMENTS.
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.

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.

Ministers give green light to pump NIS 70 million into settlements-Opposition incensed as cabinet approves aid package to beef up security, economy over the Green Line-By Times of Israel staff June 19, 2016, 3:09 pm
The government on Sunday approved a financial aid package for West Bank settlements of over NIS 70 million ($18 million) because of the “security situation.”Speaking at the weekly cabinet meeting, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said the government would push for the large effort aimed at pumping millions into settlements across the West Bank.“This is a multi-ministry effort aimed at strengthening security, aid small businesses, encourage tourism and more,” Netanyahu said.According to a report in the Yedioth Ahronoth daily, the package would included a NIS 15 million stipend to local authorities in West Bank settlements, NIS 10 million in aid to renovate and improve security at public buildings and infrastructure, NIS 5.5 million to develop tourism, NIS 6 million for youth programming social and NIS 2 million in small business aid.“Israeli settlements in Judea and Samaria are experiencing a unique daily security situation because of their geographic location and the make up of life in the region,” the cabinet said in a statement after the vote. The eight-month spike in terrorist attacks in the West Bank has had “a variety of effects on life, particularly sociological and psychological effects and economic damage to businesses which require redress and special services.”Earlier, opposition lawmaker Itzik Shmuli (Zionist Union) called it “absurd” that while regional leaders from southern Israel were protesting the lack of investment in their communities, the government funneled funds into the settlements.Zionist Union MK Tzipi Livni charged Saturday that the Netanyahu government’s national agenda was run by the settlers’ council and reiterated her call for a referendum on a one-state or two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.Speaking at a cultural event in Rishon Lezion, Livni said that the “Israeli government does whatever the Yesha Council [the umbrella organization of municipal councils of Jewish settlements in the West Bank and formerly in Gaza] wants; it is a minority that imposes its national agenda on the government.”The move would also fly in the face of the international community, who consider Israel’s West Bank settlements illegal and have called on Netanyahu’s government to halt activity there.France is pushing for an international peace conference to bring Israel and the Palestinians back to the negotiating table after talks broke down amid mutual recrimination over two years ago. At the end of a confab in Paris earlier this month, participants in the conference expressed alarm “that actions on the ground, in particular continued acts of violence and ongoing settlement activity, are dangerously imperiling the prospects for a two-state solution.”Neither Israel nor the Palestinians took part in the conference.
Preempt’s firewall tracks behavior, responds to threats in real time-Identifying unusual behavior, Preempt’s system verifies threats by interacting directly with users-By Shoshanna Solomon June 19, 2016, 2:55 pm-THE TIMES OF ISRAEL
Preempt has launched what it says is the industry’s first firewall based on tracking user behavior coupled with an instant automated ability to respond.The “behavioral firewall,” which aims to protect enterprises from security breaches and malicious insiders, couples analysis of the behavior of users to detect threats with a response system to neutralize the threat. The system allows organizations to avert threats in real-time, said the company, which has its headquarters in San Francisco and a research and development center in Ramat Gan, Israel.Even as companies are securing the perimeters of their businesses using firewalls, hackers have shifted their focus to weaknesses in the internal networks of companies, Preempt said. Trusted employees sometimes mistakenly give hackers access though misplaced laptops and smartphones, incorrect disposal of company information, or sending sensitive information to the wrong person, Verizon said in its 2016 Data Breach Investigations Report.“Humans were found to be the weakest link across a vast majority of data breaches investigated” in 2015, Verizon said in the report. In 60 percent of the breaches, hackers are able to compromise an organization within minutes, the report said.“This highlights a need for real-time visibility into breach detection and response capabilities that can instantly pre-empt these threats,” Roman Blachman, a co-founder and chief technology officer at Preempt said in a statement. Traditional firewalls tracking user behavior can perhaps detect threats, but are unable to respond, he said.Blachman served over 10 years in the Israeli army, leading cyber security product development teams and a mobile cyber-security research team, the company said.When identifying unusual user behavior, Preempt’s system uses a set of automated response mechanisms to a verify the threat by directly interacting with the user. If a real threat is perceived, then the system can automatically apply a policy to block, notify, or challenge users with multi-factor authentication.“Behavioral firewalls can characterize user behavior through machine learning and other techniques to determine what is normal behavior for a specific user or a group of users within an enterprise network,” Ajit Sancheti, a co-founder of the company who has 20 years of experience in IT security, said in an email interview. Preempt’s solution not only can track user behavior but can also adapt to the changing behavior of users, as they switch from project to project, he said.Traditional firewalls, on the other hand, are static and cannot adapt to the changing nature of user behavior as the roles and projects inside enterprises change. “Companies are attempting to characterize and understand user behavior but we have not seen any solution combine user behavior analysis with adaptive policy based response,” Sancheti said.In April this year Preempt raised $8 million in series A financing led by General Catalyst Partners and other investors including Mickey Boodaei and Rakesh Loonkar, the founders of Trusteer and Paul Sagan, the former CEI of Akamai Technologies.
Palestinians held after M-16 rifle found in car-Intelligence information leads to arrest of trio of suspected arms dealers from Ramallah and Nablus-By Stuart Winer June 19, 2016, 11:16 am-THE TIMES OF ISRAEL
Security forces arrested three Palestinians late Saturday after they were caught at a West Bank junction with an M-16 rifle hidden in their car.Border Police stopped the vehicle as it passed through Tapuah junction, a major West Bank intersection near a number of Israeli settlements south of Nablus.The men, said to be in their twenties, were from Ramallah and Nablus and were detained on suspicion of arms dealing. Troops had been dispatched to the site to search for the three after intelligence on them was received, according to police.A search of the vehicle uncovered the rifle, which had been broken down into parts and concealed in different parts of the car. The suspects were detained for further investigation by security forces-There have been several terror incidents at the busy junction including three this year in which Palestinians were stopped in the area with knives they intended to use for stabbing attacks, according to the IDF.In November 2015, four Israelis were wounded, two of them seriously, in a car-ramming attack at the site. A group of Israelis was waiting for a bus when the driver — 22-year-old Sleiman Shahin from Ramallah — approached the intersection, then accelerated into the waiting crowd, according to witnesses and police. Border Police shot and killed him at the site.Times of Israel staff contributed to this report.
As Palestinian violence recedes, some question if lull can hold-A social media echo chamber creates a sense of an intifada run wild, but it’s not clear that those cheering terror attacks are also willing to carry them out-By Avi Issacharoff June 19, 2016, 12:48 pm-THE TIMES OF ISRAEL
Eight and a half months after the “lone-wolf intifada” — or the Al-Quds Intifada, as Hamas refers to it — began amid scuffles on the Temple Mount and prayers by Knesset members there, the area received a visit that was unexpected given the political circumstances: Palestinian Authority Prime Minister Rami Hamdallah attended prayers in Al-Aqsa Mosque on Saturday afternoon, accompanied by Palestinian general intelligence chief Majd Faraj and Preventive Security Service head Ziad Hab al-Rieh.The visit was coordinated with Israel’s security establishment. It went off without a hitch. So did the prayer services of the second Friday of Ramadan 24 hours before, which were attended by 80,000 worshipers. The prayer services of the previous week, the first Friday of Ramadan, also took place quietly, with no unusual incidents.This may sound surprising considering the terror attack that took place a week and a half ago at the Sarona Market in Tel Aviv in which four people were killed, or considering all the incitement and hate speech filling social media.But things are relatively quiet throughout the West Bank. While stones and firebombs have been thrown, there are almost no organized demonstrations or riots except for specific memorial days (Nakba Day, Naksa Day and so on). The number of terror attacks continues to decline significantly compared with the terrible final months of 2015.Thus, for example, according to statistics on the Shin Bet’s website, there were 67 terror attacks and significant terror attacks in May (including firebombs), while there were 483 in October 2015. These numbers are similar to those of particularly quiet months over the past two years, such as March 2015 (61) or July 2015 (66). Something odd is happening on the Palestinian street: on the one hand, public opinion’s hatred of Israel and of the Palestinian Authority as well appears to be greater than ever. But on the other hand, things have calmed down on the ground and the number of terror attacks continues to drop. How can this be explained? “If you look at Facebook pages of the young people and of the public in general, and also according to public opinion polls, you might easily think that dozens of people were waiting with bomb belts, knives, and rifles, ready to engage in terror attacks,” one Palestinian commentator told The Times of Israel. “But many times, Facebook creates an illusion, and both you and we do not understand that. There is a wide gap between the statements being made on the social networks or in public opinion polls and people’s willingness to act. And since the beginning of this year, at least, around January and February, we can see and fewer and fewer young people are willing to be killed carrying out these terror attacks.“In the end, we need to understand that there is a difference between praising the Al-Quds Intifada or the attacks in Tel Aviv and the willingness to engage in a terror attack. Most of the public, and even most of the young people, prefer to continue working or studying and not be killed. What for? They also realize that the possibility that a stabbing attack will lead to change is close to zero. Also, today anyone who writes on Facebook or anyplace else that he wants to perpetrate a terror attack is arrested right away.”His colleague sees things a bit differently.“Many people are willing to take action today. Even violent action. They are fed up with their personal situation and the national situation; this is particularly true of the young people. So yes, the older generation and the middle generation mainly want quiet. But it’s different for the young people, and it could burst out at any moment.”Why is that not happening? Why is the situation in the West Bank so calm? “There are quite a few reasons for that. First, the realization that stabbing or ramming attacks bring no benefit. Nothing. So there’s more support now for shooting attacks and even for suicide attacks. Second, this is the Palestinian Authority. The young people see it as part of the problem, not part of the solution. In other words, Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas himself came out against these terror attacks when he said that the security services were holding inspections at schools and confiscating knives. Also [intelligence chief Majid] Faraj made similar statements. So people are thinking twice. What benefit will come from something like this if the Palestinian leadership itself is working against anyone who plans or wants to perpetrate terror attacks? “Look: in the First Intifada and even in the second, there was at least an attempt in the beginning to guide the public by means of posters or announcements: what would be done on which day. In the latest outbreak, there was nothing. There was no leadership, no guiding voice, no plan. And there are other reasons: this whole incident started around the Al-Aqsa Mosque, with the visit of Agriculture Minister Uri Ariel and the statements that Israel wanted to divide Al-Aqsa. But people saw that this wasn’t really how it was. The visits by the Knesset members stopped, no change was made in the status quo and the restrictions on the worshipers’ ages no longer exist. Israel’s policy has a part in that, too. Take Jerusalem as an example: places from which people set out to commit terror attacks, such as Jabel Mukaber or Issawiya, were put under closure, while other, quieter neighborhoods, continued to enjoy freedom of movement. And this was something that people, even the young people, understood.”But he sounds far from optimistic. “The situation is still very explosive. The motivation of these young people to fight against Israel and Israelis still exists. But as I see it, the next stage we see will be an outbreak against the Palestinian Authority itself, and against Israel at the same time. The hostility that the young people felt toward the ‘occupation’ is changing its form, and now it is against the PA. They see the PA as a heavy burden that damages the effort toward change and does not benefit it. They follow the incitement on social media, including against Abbas, and it influences them.”One of the big stars on Palestinian social media is 33-year-old Fadi Elsalameen, who has 530,000 followers. He lives in the United States and was educated abroad; his mother is from Beersheba and his father from Hebron, and he has Israeli residency. From where he lives abroad, he criticizes Abbas and his sons, various high-ranking PA officials and Hamas as well. The only one who has escaped his critical remarks is Mohammed Dahlan, Abbas’s chief rival.Elsalameen quotes extensively from essays written by Dahlan’s close associates (such as Hassan Asfour). Palestinian security officials say that they have proof of the connection between Elsalameen and Dahlan. And that is only part of the problem that the PA deals with on Facebook or on Twitter: criticism on these social networks is not aimed solely at Israel but also against Hamas, or against Abbas and the PA, as well.So Fatah and the security services are leading opposing campaigns over social networks, but the battle is doubtless almost a lost cause from the start in light of the terrible frustration and hostility that the young people feel toward Abbas. And that is also part of the problem for whoever seeks to understand the situation in the Palestinian arena (or any other arena) at present. For some time, Facebook and Twitter have not been a true reflection of public opinion in the media. They are often influenced by organized and orchestrated campaigns.Meanwhile, it is almost business as usual in the West Bank. As we learn from the high-ranking Palestinian officials’ visit to the Temple Mount, security coordination continues, even more strongly. Despite all the statements made by the PLO’s upper echelon, the PA’s security services are keeping close cooperation with Israel on the ground.The unending discourse around the identity of Abbas’s successor also refuses to subside. Marwan Barghouti has succeeded in marking himself as the leading candidate for the presidential elections, though it is doubtful whether such elections will take place even if Abbas cannot continue functioning or announces his retirement. Barghouti has also succeeded in creating a feeling that he has a specific plan that will bring about change in the status quo, a plan that was published in these pages approximately a month ago. Incitement against Israel continues, as stated, but it is also accompanied by incitement against the PA. Violence is declining, and the toughest and most problematic question of all is whether the terror attack in Tel Aviv might signal a change in direction of the Palestinian attacks: beyond stabbing and ramming, back to shootings and bomb belts.
Defending and denouncing the ‘hipster’ critic-Barak’s rebuke of Netanyahu gets vociferously rejected-in Israel Hayom; a deadly car accident recalls terrorism-By Ilan Ben Zion June 19, 2016, 1:27 pm-THE TIMES OF ISRAEL
A freak car accident that left three dead in Tel Aviv grips the tabloids on Sunday, while former prime minister Ehud Barak’s relentless assault on Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu continues to make headlines.After lashing out at the prime minister on Thursday at the Herzliya Conference, Barak doubled down in a weekend TV interview, saying that Netanyahu was “off the rails” and “must be replaced,” Haaretz reports on its front page. For good measure, Yedioth Ahronoth throws in criticism by the sister of a soldier killed in Lebanon who charges “Netanyahu told me that this is my brother’s tank,” after the Prime Minister’s Office denied that Netanyahu said Russia gave back the same exact tank lost in Sultan Yacoub.“(They don’t) respect the will of the voter: The left and the generals in an undemocratic lesson,” screams a white-on-red banner across the top of Israel Hayom — a plug for a two-page op-ed defending the prime minister against his former defense ministers. The tirade in response to criticism of the prime minister by former defense minister Moshe Ya’alon and former prime minister Ehud Barak opens with a facetious rebuke of the right for winning democratic elections.“The expansion of the government gave the signal for an unprecedented charge under the slogan ‘Anyone but Netanyahu.’ Why? Because democracy, in the eyes of [his] opponents, has one meaning: their presence in government. They’re the good, the beautiful, the kind, the acceptable. And everyone who joins their side — their sins are erased as if they never were,” Boaz Bismuth and Amos Regev say.In their blunderbuss attack on Ya’alon, Barak and everybody else who defies Netanyahu, they proclaim that Israel has never been safer, dismiss the Saudi peace initiative as bunk, and maintain there’s no international isolation of Israel whatsoever.“The new trend is also to brandish [the term] fascism. Jeez, really. Everyone on the left sees himself as Bertolt Brecht, everyone wants to be a martyr in the style of the days of Weimar,” they write. “But that’s just it, they’re not, and every comparison is ridiculous, absurd and laughable.” The only law passed that curbs free speech, they say, is the one against Israel Hayom, which was supported by left-wing free speech advocates.“A threat to democracy is when the will of the nation isn’t respected,” they charge. “It’s legitimate to want to be in power, it’s legitimate to try to topple the government, it’s legitimate to criticize, it’s legitimate to want to win in elections.”“But that’s it, that the elections were a short while ago, and there aren’t any new elections yet. And until we change this unruly nation, let’s assume that the government will continue to operate. Is that hard for Barak, hard for Ya’alon, hard for the left? Deal with it.”From the other side of the aisle, Sima Kadmon writes in Yedioth Ahronoth that she hasn’t forgotten that Barak is an opportunist who served in Netanyahu’s government and split the Labor Party. That being said, she concedes that the “hipster,” “Robinson Crusoe” former prime minister is right. Despite his “outrageous performance,” “Barak apparently among the last who indeed understands the depth of the danger of Netanyahu.”“If only it weren’t Barak who said those things, but people within Netanyahu’s government,” she says. “But that apparently won’t happen, or will happen only when Netanyahu is bleeding on the floor.” Thankfully there are people who are willing to speak out for what’s right, she says, even if it’s Ehud Barak.Whereas Kadmon offers more cautious praise of Barak, Haaretz’s editorial throws its weight behind the former defense ministers who spoke out against the prime ministers.“In Israel the defense minister is the true second-in-command to the prime minister in the most critical area, and if all those who served in this position denounce the behavior of the person who appointed them and who depended upon them, then the problem is necessarily with him, not his critics,” it says.With Avigdor Liberman as his newest defense minister, Netanyahu’s conduct is “reckless and dangerous,” and he’s dragging Israel into needless military conflicts while jeopardizing valuable partnerships, such as the one with [Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud] Abbas.”The outsiders’ criticism of Netanyahu is important in forming a “broad resistance front, within the Knesset and without, to replace the government and prevent the grave damage by Netanyahu and Liberman,” Haaretz says.Three are dead and seven injured after a driver on Ben Yehuda Street reportedly suffered a heart attack and plowed into a crowded sidewalk. “The car threw my daughter through the air and cut my husband in half,” is Yedioth Ahronoth’s headline, which quotes a grieving woman who was hurt in the accident. Just a week and change after a deadly terror shooting across town, witnesses said they feared far worse.“We lay on the floor, we thought it may have been a terrorist attack,” the wife of the restaurant owner tells Haaretz.The pictures from the scene that are splattered across the front pages show a black Audi surrounded by wreckage, the police swarming the scene of the accident.“If a foreigner had passed the intersection of Ben Yehuda and Idelson Streets last night, they would have surely thought they encountered the site of a terrorist attack,” Israel Hayom’s Avi Cohen writes in something that approximates an op-ed. He says that car accidents are a blight that claims hundreds of lives each year in Israel, “and it would appear that there’s almost nothing that can be done.”What kind of “crazy reality” do Israelis live in, however, that eyewitnesses thought it was a terrorist deliberately ramming his car into a restaurant, he asks. What exactly the point of his Page 3 article remains unclear.Haaretz reports on the European Union’s foreign ministers upcoming meeting to vote in support of the French peace initiative, a proclamation that will give a shot in the arm to Paris’s efforts to kick-start Israeli-Palestinian peace talks. Israeli officials tell Haaretz that the Foreign Ministry failed to prevent the EU foreign ministers’ motion from being passed, and that it’s now focusing efforts on getting them to soften the announcement’s language.“Everyone agrees with us in principle that direct negotiations between Israel and the Palestinians are preferable,” an unnamed senior official in Jerusalem tells Haaretz. “But in practice, they’re ignoring our objections to the French initiative. Most states don’t understand our position.”
