USA REITERATES CALL ON AMERICANS TO LEAVE GAZA ASAP.
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.

Palestinian stabs Israeli soldier in West Bank, shot dead: army-[AFP]-August 24, 2016-YAHOONEWS
Jerusalem (AFP) - A Palestinian stabbed an Israeli soldier in the occupied West Bank on Wednesday and was shot dead, the army said.An army statement said Israeli forces had been chasing a group of alleged rock throwers who were in a car."One of the assailants exited the vehicle and stabbed a soldier," it said. "Responding, the soldier fired towards the perpetrator, resulting in his death."The soldier was taken to hospital for treatment, the statement said, without giving details on his condition.The attack took place close to the Israeli settlement of Ariel, near the Palestinian city of Nablus in the northern West Bank.A wave of violence since October has killed 221 Palestinians, 34 Israelis, two Americans, an Eritrean and a Sudanese, according to an AFP tally.Most of the Palestinians killed were carrying out knife, gun or car-ramming attacks, Israeli authorities say, with the majority of them from the West Bank.
US reiterates call on Americans to leave Gaza ASAP-State Deptartment repeats December warning against travel to Strip due to ‘dangerous and volatile’ security situation-By AFP August 24, 2016, 5:28 pm-THE TIMES OF ISRAEL
The United States on Tuesday reiterated its recommendation that Americans in Gaza leave the territory controlled by Hamas, which Washington considers a terrorist group, “as soon as possible.”The warning came after the Israeli army said it bombed dozens of targets in Gaza overnight Sunday to Monday, in response to rocket fire from the Strip. Palestinian medical officials said four people were wounded.Washington regularly updates warning notices to Americans traveling to and living in countries around the world.In the case of Gaza, the State Department warned against “all travel” to the territory and “urges those present to depart as soon as possible when border crossings are open.”It had issued a similar warning in December 2015.Since January, 14 rockets fired from Gaza have hit Israeli territory, the military said.The border area has remained tense since the July-August 2014 war between Israel and Gaza militants that killed more than 2,200 Palestinians and 73 people on the Israeli side.“Gaza is under the control of Hamas, a foreign terrorist organization. The security environment within Gaza and on its borders is dangerous and volatile,” the State Department said in its warning Tuesday.As for Israel and the West Bank, a wave of violence there since October 2015 has left Americans dead and wounded, the department said.However, “there is no indication that US citizens were specifically targeted based on nationality.”The violence has eased in recent weeks, but an AFP count shows 34 Israelis and 220 Palestinians killed since October 1, 2015 in Israel and the territories. Most of the Palestinians killed were attackers or suspected attackers. A number were killed in clashes with the Israeli army.The State Department on Tuesday also condemned plans, reported by Israeli media, to expand a Jewish military compound in the West Bank city of Hebron by building homes for settlers.“If these reports are true… that would represent a deeply concerning step of settlement expansion on land that is at least partially owned by Palestinians,” department spokesman Mark Toner said at a press briefing.“We strongly oppose all settlement activity, which is corrosive to the cause of peace. And we’ve said repeatedly such moves are not consistent with Israel’s stated desire to achieve a two-state solution,” Toner added.Washington regularly condemns its ally Israel for “illegitimate” settlements in the Palestinian territories.
On Gaza border, president says nobody wants wider flare-up-Both sides want to live in peace, but Israel ‘ready for any animosity,’ says Reuven Rivlin-TBy Times of Israel staff August 23, 2016, 6:13 pm
During a visit to the Gaza periphery on Tuesday, President Reuven Rivlin said Israel is not seeking a wider conflict with Hamas.“Just as the other side wants to live in peace, so do we. But in the same breath, we are ready for any animosity toward us,” Rivlin said while meeting with troops near the border.The visit took place two days after Israel carried out an unusually heavy bombardment of Hamas sites in the Strip following Sunday’s rocket attack from Gaza on the southern city of Sderot.Officials on both sides have since urged calm and signaled they did not seek a violent flare-up.While noting that Israel’s south was “thriving” two years after the last armed conflict with Hamas in Gaza, the president said the country had a “moral and civil obligation” to achieve the return of the bodies of Lt. Hadar Goldin and Staff Sergeant Oron Shaul, who were killed during the conflict and whose bodies are being held by Hamas.Rivlin visited the area earlier in the day but journalists were asked for security reasons to keep his visit under wraps until he left, as is often done with high-level visits to the restive region.
The latest Gaza operation: Rescue inhabitants of ‘world’s worst zoo’-Four Paws, headed by Dr. Amir Khalil, will relocate the wildlife at the request of the park’s owner amid squalid conditions-By Rich Tenorio August 18, 2016, 7:43 pm-THE TIMES OF ISRAEL
From cramped cages to food shortages to military conflict, the animals of the Khan Younis Zoo in the Gaza Strip have suffered much. But the inhabitants of a zoo described as the world’s worst are about to receive a second chance.Four Paws, an international animal nonprofit headquartered in Vienna, will lead a rescue operation to close down the zoo “in the next days,” spokesman Nikolay Evstratov said in a press release on Thursday.The Gaza zoo has earned its dubious distinction because as the animals died off their bodies were preserved by the zoo’s owner, a novice taxidermist, and their mummified bodies displayed alongside living animals. Their aging cadavers have since been removed.The 16 living animals at the zoo include Laziz, believed to be the last tiger in Gaza, as well as tortoises, porcupines and an emu.Egyptian-born veterinarian Dr. Amir Khalil, director of emergency response for Four Paws, will coordinate a team of fellow veterinarians and logistical support members to relocate the animals.“The closure of the zoo means a new way of life for the tiger Laziz and the other animals, which up to now have had to waste their lives away in desolate cages, suffering from a lack of food and medical care,” Khalil said.Most of the animals will get a new home at the New Hope Centre for rescued animals in Jordan, part of the Al Ma’wa for Nature and Wildlife organization, administered by both Four Paws and the Princess Alia Foundation.Laziz, however, will undergo a longer journey.Four Paws will transport the tiger to its Lionsrock sanctuary in South Africa, as the New Hope Centre currently has no space to accommodate another big cat.Lionsrock is home to over 100 big cats that had been held in poor conditions. In South Africa, Laziz will first live in an adaptation enclosure to get familiar with the new environment before moving into a one-hectare space, with grass to walk across, trees for shade and a pond to bathe.This will be Four Paws’ third visit to Khan Younis this year, completing a process that began in February.“Early this year, financial difficulties meant that the Khan Younis zoo was no longer able to adequately care for and feed its animals,” Evstratov said, adding that the cadavers were displayed to “attract more visitors and income.”The zoo owner requested help from the nonprofit, which had previously helped other zoos among the six listed for the Gaza Strip. Four Paws responded by bringing in food supplies.In June, Four Paws completed a second aid mission, conducting medical checks on the animals and safety checks on the cramped enclosures.For the upcoming mission, Four Paws has adopted a unique crowdfunding idea: a “Lemon Challenge.”In the challenge, individuals are asked, in addition to financial support, to film themselves biting into a lemon to share solidarity with the sour situation of the animals and share the video on social media.Khalil and Four Paws have a long history of trying to help animals in combat zones, including during the 2011 Libyan uprising that toppled Muammar Qaddafi, when Khalil attempted to save Osama, a Siberian tiger at the Tripoli zoo. He was ultimately unsuccessful.Four Paws began aid efforts to the Gaza zoos in September 2014, after Israel’s Operation Protective Edge against Hamas, when the owner of the Al Bisan Zoo in Beit Lahia contacted Four Paws seeking aid for the surviving animals. Four Paws described this zoo as “badly damaged.” Four Paws transported three lions from Al Bisan to the New Hope Centre.Last April, Four Paws visited Khan Younis for the first time, providing medical treatment and food to the animals. Last September, Four Paws acquired two lion cubs from a refugee camp in Rafah. A father of six had purchased the cubs as pets from the strip’s Rafah Zoo.Now comes the organization’s arguably most challenging mission.Khalil said that “the hardest part is still ahead of us.”“To actually get the animals out of the worst zoo in the world and transfer them to their new homes,” he said.
International summit in Jerusalem to tackle education gaps-Academia and business reps will weigh how to add arts, design and innovation to math and science education-By Shoshanna Solomon August 24, 2016, 4:48 pm-THE TIMES OF ISRAEL
The Israel Sci-Tech Schools, an network of science and technology educational institutions in Israel, will hold an international conference in November in Jerusalem to focus on correcting global deficiencies in the education of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM).The conference will bring together international business, high-tech and education representatives to find ways to increase the scope of STEM education to include a greater focus on art, design and innovation, the Friends of Israel Sci-Tech Schools said in an emailed statement today.The gathering will also present methodologies that will help to prepare elementary, secondary and junior college students for an ever-changing global workforce, the statement said, as well as address the growing mismatch between skills learned in the classroom and its application in the workforce as found in OECD countries like Israel.Nobel Laurate Prof. Dan Shechtman of the Technion – Israel Institute of Technology, and Aaron Mankovski, managing general partner at Pitango Venture Capital, will co-chair the conference, the statement said.“To continue to fuel the growth of high tech corporations, we must be training students for the future in that industry,” said Israel Sci-Tech Schools director general Zvi Peleg. “Today, that includes a broader curriculum of art, design and innovation, in addition to the basic skills.”Friends of Israel Sci-Tech Schools is a US-based nonprofit organization that aims to support the 206 institutions and 100,000 students of the largest independent network of science and technology educational institutions in Israel, the statement said.
