GAZA SHOOTS ROCKET INTO ISRAEL-ISRAEL RETALIATES AT THE ARAB MURDERERS.
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.

Gaza rocket strikes near homes in Sderot; no injuries-Projectile hits between two homes near train station and college in Israeli border town, causes no damage; Israel strikes back at two Hamas targets in northern Strip-By Judah Ari Gross and Times of Israel staff August 21, 2016, 3:02 pm-THE TIMES OF ISRAEL
Palestinian terrorists in the Gaza Strip launched a rocket into Israel on Sunday afternoon, setting off warning sirens in the western Negev.The projectile exploded inside the territory of the border town of Sderot, causing no casualties or damage.The rocket landed between two homes, near a college and the local train station. Locals said it was “a miracle” that nobody was injured.In response to the attack, the Israel Defense Forces attacked two sites of Hamas “terrorist infrastructure” in Beit Hanoun, in the northern Gaza Strip.An Israel Air Force plane was used to strike the first target, while an IDF tank was used to attack the second, the army said.Palestinian health and security sources said two people were lightly wounded by the Israeli fire, AFP reported.“One of them is a 20-year-old (young man) who was hit by shrapnel in the face,” said Ashraf al-Qudra, spokesman for the Palestinian health ministry in Hamas-controlled Gaza.This was the first time air raid alerts sounded across the area bordering the Gaza Strip in several weeks.The rocket struck on Hanehalim Street, near the Sderot Train Station and Sapir College, according to police.Sappers were called to the scene in order to handle the projectile, police said.A spokesperson for local law enforcement called for the public to stay away from the area in order to allow “police bomb disposal experts to maintain full safety at the scene.”The Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) took responsibility for the rocket launch shortly after the attack.The PFLP’s military arm, the Abu Ali Mustafa Brigades, told local media: “Our people have the right to practice all forms of resistance in response to the crimes and hubris of the occupation.”The rocket launch was apparently in response to the ongoing imprisonment of Bilal Kayed, a PFLP member who has been kept in prison through an Israeli detention order, despite being scheduled for release earlier this summer after serving a 14.5-year sentence.In a press conference in Gaza on Saturday night, the group promised to carry out retribution for Kayed’s detention, though it did not specify what form that would take.Launches from Gaza are infrequent and usually carried out by small fringe groups without the approval of Gaza’s Hamas rulers.The last rocket to hit Israel from Gaza hit an empty preschool in Sderot on July 1.Israel has said it holds Hamas responsible for any attacks emanating from Gaza and routinely responds to such launches with strikes inside the Palestinian territory.
Gazans report intense Israeli airstrikes in fresh reprisal-As Hamas parades missiles and hours after rocket fired at Sderot, several new raids said to hit northern Strip; no IDF confirmation-By Judah Ari Gross and Times of Israel staff August 21, 2016, 10:57 pm
Palestinians in Gaza reported fresh Israeli airstrikes in the Strip Sunday night, hours after rocket fire at southern Israel drew an Israeli reprisal and as Hamas paraded missiles through the streets and threatened renewed violence.The Israeli air force was carrying out raids in northern Gaza Strip, according to reports in Palestinian media.Reports on social media indicated that several waves of bombings had taken place in the Strip late Sunday night.OVER 30 AIRSTRIKES ON #GAZA NOW#GazaUnderAttack pic.twitter.com/EF5GuzF20N— Dr.Basel Abuwarda (@BaselAbuwarda) August 21, 2016-There was no immediate confirmation from the Israeli military.The large-scale shelling would indicate the most intense Israeli reprisal attack on Gaza since the sides fought a bloody war in 2014, and could signal a shift in policy by newly installed Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman, considered a hard-liner.The air strikes reportedly targeted installations belonging to Hamas, a terror group which is the de facto ruler of the Strip and which Israel holds responsible for any fire emanating from Gaza.On Sunday afternoon, Palestinian terrorists in the Gaza Strip launched a rocket into Israel, setting off warning sirens in the western Negev.The projectile exploded inside the border town of Sderot, causing no casualties or damage. The attack was the second serious rocket strike from Gaza since Liberman took office in May, following a strike that hit an empty kindergarten in July.The rocket Sunday landed between two homes, near a college and the local train station. Locals said it was “a miracle” that nobody was injured.In response to the attack, the Israel Defense Forces attacked two sites of Hamas “terrorist infrastructure” in Beit Hanoun, in the northern Gaza Strip.An Israel Air Force plane was used to strike the first target, while an IDF tank was used to attack the second, the army said.Palestinian health and security sources said two people were lightly wounded by the Israeli fire on Sunday afternoon, AFP reported.“One of them is a 20-year-old (young man) who was hit by shrapnel in the face,” said Ashraf al-Qudra, spokesman for the Palestinian health ministry in Hamas-controlled Gaza.This was the first time air raid alerts sounded across the area bordering the Gaza Strip in several weeks.The rocket struck on Hanehalim Street, near the Sderot Train Station and Sapir College, according to police.Sappers were called to the scene in order to handle the projectile, police said.A spokesperson for local law enforcement called for the public to stay away from the area in order to allow “police bomb disposal experts to maintain full safety at the scene.”The Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) took responsibility for the rocket launch shortly after the attack.The PFLP’s military arm, the Abu Ali Mustafa Brigades, told local media: “Our people have the right to practice all forms of resistance in response to the crimes and hubris of the occupation.”The rocket launch was apparently in response to the ongoing imprisonment of Bilal Kayed, a PFLP member who has been kept in prison through an Israeli detention order, despite being scheduled for release earlier this summer, after serving a 14.5-year sentence.In a press conference in Gaza on Saturday night, the group promised to carry out retribution for Kayed’s detention, though it did not specify what form that would take.However, at least one smaller salafist group ties to the Islamic State also took responsibility for the attack.Launches from Gaza are infrequent and usually carried out by small fringe groups without the approval of Gaza’s Hamas rulers.The last rocket to hit Israel from Gaza hit an empty preschool in Sderot on July 1.Israel has said it holds Hamas responsible for any attacks emanating from Gaza and routinely responds to such launches with strikes inside the Palestinian territory.Earlier Sunday night, Hamas held a large rally in the southern Gaza town of Rafah, parading rockets through the streets and threatening to renew fighting if Israel did not lift a decade-old blockade on the enclave.Israel says the blockade, also imposed by Egypt, is necessary to keep Hamas and other terror groups from re-arming or rebuilding military infrastructure.
Hamas threatens to abuse Israeli hostages, renew fighting-Parading rockets through Rafah and threatening new fighting, Gaza terror group says Israelis held in Strip will receive same treatment as Hamas members in Israeli jails-By Dov Lieber August 21, 2016, 10:37 pm-THE TIMES OF ISRAEL
The Hamas terror group threatened Thursday to maltreat Israeli hostages being held in the Strip, saying it would offer them the same conditions its own members are given in the Jewish state’s jails.Hamas is holding the remains of soldiers Oron Shaul and Hadar Goldin, who were killed in the 2014 Gaza war, as well as 29-year-old Avraham Mengistu and Juma Ibrahim Abu Anima, both of whom entered the Strip in 2014 and have not been heard from since.Speaking at a massive rally in Rafah in the southern Strip, Abu Obieda, spokesperson for Hamas’s military branch the Izz ad-Din al-Qassam Brigades, accused Israel of “racist” and “repressive” measures for Hamas prisoners.Speaking hours after a Gazan rocket struck the Israeli border town of Sderot, Abu Obeuda also threatened that hostilities could renew, after two years of relative calm.“The enemy [i.e., Israel] knows that its prisoners will receive the same treatment as our prisoners in Israeli jails,” Abu Obieda said.On August 4, 300 Hamas prisoners announced a massive hunger strike, protesting what they said were worsening conditions in Israeli jails.Two days later, the Hamas prisoners ended their strike, saying prison authorities had agreed to end “humiliating” body searches and return recently transferred prisoners.AFP reported that over 1,000 masked members of the Qassam brigades were in attendance at Sunday’s rally, and were holding various weapons. Rockets and missiles were also reportedly displayed.The Hamas spokesman threatened new violence if the Israeli blockade of the Strip continues.“The siege will not prevent the Qassam Brigades from developing its abilities, and shall not serve the continuance of the state of calm,” he said.“Whoever plants anger will reap a volcano,” the Hamas spokesperson warned.Israel says the blockade is necessary to keep arms and other military infrastructure from reaching Hamas and other terror groups in the Strip.Since the end of the summer 2014 war, Hamas has repeatedly threatened to restart hostilities with Israel if the blockade of the Strip is not lifted.Earlier on Sunday, a rocket fired from the Gaza Strip landed in the Israeli town of Sderot, causing no injuries or damage.The Israeli army blamed the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine for the attack, though a number of smaller salafist groups also took responsibility for the missile.In response to the attack, the Israel Defense Forces attacked two sites of Hamas “terrorist infrastructure” in Beit Hanoun, in the northern Gaza Strip.
Israeli delegation in Cairo to discuss peace push — report-Officials said set to meet for several hours on Egyptian initiative, other unspecified matters, days after Abbas signals willingness to join talks-By Times of Israel staff August 21, 2016, 8:45 pm
An Israeli delegation was reportedly in Cairo on Sunday to meet with Egyptian officials on President Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi’s proposal to revive the peace process.Israeli officials were scheduled to meet their Egyptian counterparts on Palestinian peace talks, as well as other matters related to the two countries, the DPA news agency reported.The talks were set to last several hours, according to the report by the Germany agency.Last week, Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas reportedly informed Egypt he is no longer opposed to participating in a regional or international peace summit in Cairo.According to a report on Israel Radio on Friday, the Palestinian leader told an Egyptian delegation in Ramallah that he was willing to attend such a conference, but stressed that the Egyptian peace push would not replace the French initiative to revive talks, which the Palestinians have favored, but Israel has strongly opposed.The PA president also reportedly asked that France, Russia and Switzerland attend the summit.Abbas urged Egypt to press Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to freeze settlement construction and release Palestinian prisoners ahead of a meeting between the two leaders in Egypt, the report said, but Cairo’s position on the proposed preconditions was not immediately clear.In July, Palestinian leaders presented several preconditions for participating in a trilateral Israeli-Egyptian-Palestinian peace summit in Cairo, including a freeze on Israeli settlement construction, a Palestinian official told The Times of Israel. Abbas also demanded that Israel acquiesce to negotiations based on the pre-1967 lines and pledge ahead of time to implement any agreements reached in the talks.Netanyahu in July reportedly told Egyptian Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry — on a rare visit to Jerusalem — he would be willing to meet with Abbas in Cairo for talks hosted by Sissi. The Prime Minister’s Office did not deny the report by the Saudi-owned, pan-Arab news outlet Al-Arabiya. It said in a statement that “whether the issue was discussed or not, Israel has always said it is prepared to conduct direct bilateral negotiations with no preconditions.”Sissi reportedly offered to host direct talks between the sides as part of Cairo’s initiative to kick-start the moribund peace process.Shoukry’s visit to Israel was the first by an Egyptian foreign minister since 2007. The visit came amid speculation over the renewal of an Arab peace initiative and as Israel’s military recently saluted “unprecedented” intelligence cooperation with Egypt to combat the Islamic State group.According to Israel’s Channel 2 television, Shoukry’s surprise visit was also aimed at arranging a first meeting between Netanyahu and Sissi in Egypt in the coming months.The TV report said Shoukry’s first visit to Israel was coordinated between Egypt and Saudi Arabia, whose Arab Peace Initiative is backed by Sissi and much of the Arab world as the basis of any regional peace effort. Netanyahu has rejected the initiative in its current form, but said in late May that it “contains positive elements that could help revive constructive negotiations with the Palestinians.”Avi Issacharoff contributed to this report.
PA, Hamas recycle lie ‘radical Jew’ set fire to Al-Aqsa Mosque-Palestinian leaders link 47-year-old arson by mentally-ill Christian tourist to current tensions in Jerusalem and warn of new ‘attacks’-By Dov Lieber August 21, 2016, 6:21 pm-THE TIMES OF ISRAEL
Palestinians marked 47 years since a fire set by a Christian fundamentalist damaged the Al-Aqsa Mosque by blaming the 1969 arson on a “radical Jew.”Official news outlets for both the Palestinian Authority and the Hamas terror group on Sunday reported the oft-cited falsehood, while arguing the famous Islamic site faces a similar threat today.Denis Michael Rohan, a 28-year-old mentally ill Christian fundamentalist from Australia, set fire to the Al Aqsa Mosque, believing he had been given a “sign from God” to carry out his crime. The Palestinians and much of the Arab world blamed the Israeli government for the fire, which destroyed part of the old wooden roof and a 800-year-old pulpit — a gift from the Islamic hero Saladin.The Palestinian official news outlet Wafa reported Sunday that the Palestinian National Council (PNC) said in a statement: “The crimes of the Israeli occupation and its attempts to Judaize Jerusalem and the Al Aqsa Mosque are still continuing, 47 years after the arson crime.”The PNC asked for protection from the Arab world to secure the Al Aqsa Mosque from “attacks” by Israelis.While reviewing the history of the 1969 arson, Wafa reported that Rohan, the arsonist, was a “Jewish-Israeli” and had carried out his crime “under the protection of the occupation authorities.”Rohan was arrested shortly after the attack, tried by Israel and deported to Australia after being found to be insane.Yet the fact that he was not a Jewish Israeli or acting under Israel’s auspices is rarely mentioned in some Palestinian circles.In a Palestinian Authority 11th-grade history textbook, revised for 2016 and reviewed by EU representatives, the Al Aqsa Mosque arsonist is referred to as a “radical Jew,” Israel Radio’s Gal Berger reported on Twitter.Hamas’s official media outlet Al Aqsa TV, in an article on the 47th anniversary of the arson attack, also labeled Rohan a “radical Jew,” calling the crime part of a “Zionist occupation scheme to target the mosque.”The Al Aqsa TV article also attempts to link the 1969 arson to Hamas’s allegations of recent attempts by “radical Israelis” to “attack” the mosque.The report also accuses Israeli authorities of protecting Jews performing “Talmudic rituals” on the Temple Mount, of building an underground tunnel network under the mosque, and of plans to divide the mosque between Jews and Muslims, as is currently the situation at the Cave of the Patriarchs in Hebron, known as the Ibrahimi Mosque to Muslims.Under the current status quo arrangement, Jews may visit the compound, but not pray there.Turkey’s state-run Anadolu Agency, while noting the fact that Rohan was a tourist, nevertheless counted the arson as one of a number of Israeli “assaults” on the flashpoint compound. The report also quoted Sheikh Ekrema Sabri, a former Al-Aqsa Mosque preacher, who accused Israeli authorities of preventing Palestinians from trying to put out the blaze by cutting off the water supply.The Temple Mount, known to Muslims as the Haram-al-Sharif, is the holiest site in Judaism and third-holiest in Islam. The compound, and the Al-Aqsa Mosque atop it, have been a recurring source of tension in Jerusalem in recent years.Palestinians have cited Israeli “provocations” there as one of the main catalysts for months of violent attacks this year and late last year. They have become increasingly wary of Israel’s intentions at the holy site, often accusing the Jewish state of attempting to impose greater control over the compound, and even of planning to eliminate the mosque and establish Jewish hegemony there.Israel has repeatedly denied any change in the status quo at the site.
Ultra-Orthodox protesters clash with police over arrested draftee-Three detained as demonstrators throw stones, try to block road outside Jerusalem IDF recruitment office-By Stuart Winer and Times of Israel staff August 21, 2016, 8:28 pm-THE TIMES OF ISRAEL
Several dozen ultra-Orthodox protesters clashed with police Sunday as they demonstrated outside the Jerusalem army recruitment office against the arrest of a yeshiva student who failed to show up for his enlistment.Protesters gathered outside the recruitment office on Rashi Street and some threw rocks at police or tried to block the road.Police cleared the protesters from the the road and three demonstrators were held. There were no injuries to security forces.The arrested yeshiva student, a 23-year-old from Jerusalem who planned to get married in two weeks, claims he didn’t turn up for his induction date a month ago because he didn’t get a notification in the mail, the Hebrew-language Ynet website reported.Later on Sunday evening, Haredi protesters in Jerusalem blocked off the Mea Shearim neighborhood, while demonstrators in Beit Shemesh pushed dumpsters into the street, blocking traffic, and hurled stones at police officers.Last Thursday, hundreds of demonstrators in Jerusalem and Beit Shemesh torched dumpsters and threw rocks at police officers in protest against the same arrest. Seven were detained in the capital and one in Beit Shemesh.Many in the ultra-Orthodox (“Haredi”) community shun the mandatory national service that applies to most Israelis, and the community has historically enjoyed blanket exemptions from the army, in favor of religious seminary studies.Police have sporadically detained ultra-Orthodox draft-dodgers in the past year.In July, five Haredi demonstrators protesting the IDF draft outside a Jaffa courthouse were arrested. At the end of the mostly peaceful protest, some of the demonstrators attacked policemen, overturned garbage cans, blocked traffic, hurled eggs and stones at cops, and flipped over two motorcycles, damaging them, police said at the time. There were no reports of injuries.Reforms passed in the Knesset in 2014 that sought to do away with the exemptions and gradually increase ultra-Orthodox recruitment met fierce opposition from many in the community.In late November, the Knesset approved an amendment to the Equal Service Law, dramatically rolling back 2014 reforms and scrapping collective penalties to be imposed if annual quotas for ultra-Orthodox draftees were not met.
