PALESTINIAN AUTHORITY WARNS UNESCO MEMBERS THEY'D BETTER SUPPORT UPCOMING JERUSALEM VOTE.
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.

PA warns UNESCO members they’d better support upcoming Jerusalem vote-Ramallah, Amman threaten ‘other options’ if ‘consensus’ text slamming Israel is not approved unanimously; Israel: PA are ‘liars, bullies,’ pushing ‘biased’ resolutions-By Raphael Ahren October 25, 2016, 1:46 pm-THE TIMES OF ISRAEL
As another UNESCO vote on a resolution that omits Jewish ties to the Temple Mount in Jerusalem nears, the Palestinian delegation to the organization has threatened the international community, allegedly saying it will introduce text even harsher toward Israel if the resolution does not get full support from the world body.On Wednesday, the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization’s World Heritage Committee, currently convening in Paris, is set to vote on the text, which deals with alleged Israeli violations in Jerusalem’s Old City and is similar to a controversial resolution passed by the body’s executive board earlier this month.In a letter sent to the 21 member countries of the World Heritage Committee on Monday, the Palestinian and Jordanian delegations to UNESCO argue that they had made great efforts “to keep on the Jerusalem Decision consensual language” and that it had been endorsed by all members of the committee.In the letter, a copy of which was obtained by The Times of Israel, the Palestinian and Arab delegations say they learned that “a few member states are still hesitant whether they can commit to our agreement… or not.”This hesitance is seen “as a retreat from the consensual language,” the diplomats wrote. They expect their draft to be adopted by consensus and without a vote, they added.“Otherwise,” the letter continues, “the delegation of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan and the delegation of Palestine would and according to the rules of procedure be obliged to consider other options.”The letter does not spell out what these would be, but Israeli officials said the Palestinians, worried about recent diplomatic setbacks at UNESCO, are threatening to further harm the organization’s reputation by pushing through blatantly biased resolutions.In certain respects, the text for this week’s vote is somewhat softer in its attacks on Israel than a resolution passed last week that drew allegations of anti-Semitism and was seen in some quarters as giving the panel a black eye.For instance, unlike last week’s version, it does not call Israel an “occupying power” in Jerusalem’s Old City. It also does not place quotation marks around the Jewish term “Western Wall.”However, the text adopted on October 13 included one passage with a mention of the importance of Jerusalem’s Old City for “the three monotheistic religions,” while the heritage committee’s resolution includes no references at all to Jewish or Christian ties to the area’s holy sites.Jerusalem is currently engaged in a worldwide effort to prevent a unanimous decision to adopt the draft but rather force a vote in which some states are expected to vote against or abstain, Israel’s envoy to UNESCO, Carmel Shama-Hacohen, said Tuesday.“The Palestinians’ ultimatums and threats only demonstrate their [poor] situation and reveal their true character as bullies and liars,” he said. “The Arabs’ letter and ultimatum are an excellent sign telling us that we’re on the right path.”The earlier resolution, which was approved October 13 at the UNESCO committee stage with 24 “yes” votes, six “no” votes and 26 abstentions, and then formally confirmed by UNESCO’s executive on October 18, sparked vociferous condemnation in Israel, as well as from UNESCO’s own director, Irina Bokova, and several foreign leaders.A chorus of Israeli politicians, led by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu but including left-wing lawmakers, slammed the decision as absurd and UNESCO as detached from reality.Mexico and Brazil, which voted in favor of the resolution, later expressed regret and vowed to abstain in future votes on the matter. Italy, which abstained, said it would henceforth vote against similar resolutions.“The Palestinians and the Arabs understand that after Mexico and Italy they can expect a number of additional unpleasant surprises,” Shama-Hacohen said. Their ultimatum is intended to send the following message to the World Heritage Committee’s member states, he added: “Stop abandoning us or we’ll burn the house down with extreme anti-Israel resolutions that will cause tremendous damage to the organization.”Italy, Brazil and Mexico are not members of UNESCO’s World Heritage Committee, and thus will not be able to vote on Wednesday.The 21 nations that will vote on the text are: Finland, Poland, Portugal, Croatia, Turkey, Azerbaijan, South Korea, Indonesia, the Philippines, Vietnam, Kazakhstan, Tunisia, Kuwait, Lebanon, Peru, Cuba, Jamaica, Burkina Faso, Zimbabwe, Angola and Tanzania.
Palestinian campaign vs Balfour shows hostility to Jewish state undimmed after 100 years-Op-ed: Netanyahu always claims Palestinian opposition to Jewish sovereignty anywhere, not just to occupation and settlements, lies at the root of the conflict. The PA’s new battle against a century-old British declaration sadly proves his point-By David Horovitz October 25, 2016, 6:35 pm-THE TIMES OF ISRAEL
Hidden away at the British Library — available for viewing only by special permission — is the original Balfour Declaration, foreign secretary Arthur James Balfour’s short but oh-so-resonant century-old letter of British government intent to revive Jewish sovereignty in the Holy Land. Also preserved, in an elegant folders kept under lock and key, is an earlier draft of the Declaration, a version that was circulated to various officials for their responses and possible amendments before the final text was issued on November 2, 1917.Even after deciding on the legitimacy of the Zionist cause — and assessing its potential advantage to British interests — the Brits, as the various drafts of the Declaration make plain, recognized the spectacular sensitivities and potential repercussions of the decision to “view with favour the establishment in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish people.”From the get-go, the British sought to square the circle — to restore Jewish statehood in the only place on earth where the Jewish people had ever been sovereign, but to do so while preserving the rights of the other communities living in the Holy Land. That effort to realize Jewish sovereign rights while also legitimizing the claims of the Arab peoples here was maintained when Britain ended its mandate and the UN in 1947 recommended partition — a revived Jewish state alongside a first-ever Palestinian state.The Arab world opposed the Balfour Declaration from day one, opposed the UN partition plan, and sought to destroy the State of Israel in 1948. And on Monday, even though the Palestine Liberation Organization ostensibly came to terms with pre-1967 Israel when Yasser Arafat entered the ill-fated Oslo process with Yitzhak Rabin a quarter-century ago, a senior member of that same PLO proclaimed the Balfour Declaration to be a criminal “colonialist project” and formally launched what he promised will be a year-long campaign designed “to remind the world and particularly Britain that they should face their historic responsibility and to atone for the big crime Britain committed against the Palestinian people.”A few months ago, the Palestinian Authority revealed it was also preparing a lawsuit against the British government over the Balfour Declaration, with the PA’s Foreign Minister Riyad al-Malki holding London responsible for all “Israeli crimes” committed since the end of the British mandate. It was Britain that had committed the original sin of paving the way for Israel’s establishment, because the Balfour Declaration, said Malki, “gave people who don’t belong there something that wasn’t theirs.”Polished Palestinian Authority politicians and spokespeople would have the world believe that their objections to Israel are centered on the occupation of the West Bank and East Jerusalem, and on the settlement enterprise — and that what they seek is an independent Palestine alongside Israel, not in place of it.Here we still are, a century later, with the Palestinian leadership branding as a ‘crime’ the start of a process that, had they accepted it, would long since have given them statehood-The Palestinians’ new campaign to highlight the ostensible illegalities and iniquities of the Balfour Declaration tells a different story. It shows an undimmed hostility to the very notion of Jewish sovereignty anywhere in the holy land, and an abiding refusal to accept Jewish legitimacy here. The 1917 Declaration pledged to safeguard the rights of others even as it sought to realize the rights of the Jews. So, too, the UN vote on partition in 1947. And yet here we still are, a century later, with the Palestinian leadership branding as a “crime” the start of a process that, had they accepted it, would long since have given them statehood. For the Palestinian leadership, in 2016, we Jews remain people who don’t belong there, who got something that wasn’t theirs.This is not Hamas talking, not a terrorist organization avowedly committed to destroying all vestiges of Israel. This is the supposed moderate, mainstream Palestinian leadership. The relative good guys. The hierarchy regarded internationally as responsible. The leadership with which Israel has negotiated and would negotiate.Unfortunately, there should be no great surprise about this. The same purportedly responsible Palestinian leadership, while claiming to seek a two-state solution, is relentlessly pushing resolutions through UNESCO that rewrite history to sever Judaism (and Christianity) from its holiest places in Jerusalem, and thus to discredit Jewish sovereign legitimacy. Pathetically, most UNESCO nations are abetting the farce, either failing to oppose or actually voting in support of the Palestinian mockery of historical fact. With their pusillanimous votes, these nations are thus encouraging the Palestinian intolerance of Jewish legitimacy, and, by extension, tacitly countenancing Palestinian violence against the ostensibly unrooted Jewish state.The same purportedly responsible Palestinian leadership, it might also be recalled, chose not to accept prime minister Ehud Olmert’s 2008 peace offer, which again would have given the Palestinians the viable, contiguous independent state alongside Israel that they assure the international community is all they seek.And the same purportedly responsible Palestinian leadership tirelessly uses its TV, print media and social media to incite violence against Israel and assert the illegitimacy of sovereign Israel.By continuing to expand the settlement enterprise, building homes for Jews even in West Bank areas that Israel cannot credibly envisage retaining in any peace agreement, the Netanyahu government, like almost all of its predecessors since Israel captured the territories in the 1967 war, gradually discredits those genuine Palestinian moderates who seek peace and believe it is attainable. Building homes in such areas also discredits Israel internationally — undermining the government’s claim to strive for peace and a viable two-state solution. And it harms Israel’s fundamental interest in maintaining a Jewish state and a democratic regime, since one or both of those foundational qualities will be lost if we cannot disentangle ourselves from the millions of Palestinians in the disputed territories.But when Netanyahu tells Israelis and the international community that the root cause of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict is not the settlement enterprise, as the Palestinians claim, but rather the perpetual refusal of the Palestinian leadership and populace to internalize the Jewish people’s right to sovereignty anywhere in the holy land, the Palestinians themselves provide ongoing confirmation.The Balfour Declaration sought to restore a Jewish homeland while respecting the interests of the non-Jews who share this land. Thirty years later, the UN set out a specific framework for achieving this. This was not acceptable to the Palestinians and those who spoke for them at the time, since their desire for a first-ever Palestinian state was outweighed by their hostility to the notion of a revived Jewish state alongside them. And it is all too evidently not acceptable to the Palestinian leadership now.In declaring diplomatic and legal war on the Balfour Declaration, Palestinian leaders are telling the world — to their and our enduring misfortune — that nothing has changed in 100 years, that their opposition to our state in any borders remains greater than their desire for their own independent entity. A century later, they are affirming that their refusal to share any part of this land with the Jewish people remains absolute.
Teenage Israeli worker shot dead near Egypt border; IDF rules out terror-Defense Ministry civilian contractor, 15, was performing maintenance work on fence; Sky News Arabia says shots fired during clash between smugglers, Egyptian border guards-By Judah Ari Gross October 25, 2016, 3:45 pm-THE TIMES OF ISRAEL
An Israeli teenager was shot and killed near Mount Harif in southern Israel on Tuesday afternoon while working on the border fence with Egypt, officials said.The bullet came from across the border in Egypt, though it was not immediately clear who fired it, the army said.However, the shooting “does not appear to be connected to terror activities,” the army said in a statement.The victim was named as Nimer Bassem Abu Amar, a 15-year-old from Lakiya, a predominantly Bedouin village in southern Israel, according to the Defense Ministry.Egyptian security sources told Sky News Arabia the shots were fired during a clash between smugglers and Egyptian border guards.According to the Arabic report, the smugglers opened fire at a group of Israeli contractors during the shootout, before Egyptian forces shot back.The IDF could not confirm the claim, as details of the incident were still being investigated, a military spokesperson said.The Israeli and Egyptian militaries were working together to sort out what had happened, the IDF said.The slain teenager was employed by a civilian subcontractor hired by the Defense Ministry, who had been performing maintenance work on the fence, a spokesperson for the ministry said.The ministry did not immediately respond to requests for comment on how the minor came to be employed along the Egyptian border, but said it had “reached out to the maintenance subcontractor company” in order to get additional information.After he was shot, Abu Amar was transported by helicopter to Beersheba’s Soroka Medical Center for treatment, but succumbed to his wounds, the IDF said.This was not the first time civilian contractors employed by the Defense Ministry have been killed while working close to the border, nor was it the first 15-year-old.In 2014, a missile was fired at a group of contractors and one of the workers’ sons, who were riding in a car near the Syrian border. The 15-year-old, Mohammed Karkara, was killed and three others were injured in the attack.The year before, Saleh Abu Latif, a Defense Ministry contractor, was shot and killed by a sniper as he repaired the Gaza security barrier after a storm.
Israel postpones choosing new ambassador to Turkey-Meeting to pick nominee pushed off, no new date set; envoy exchange to mark final stage of reconciliation deal-By Times of Israel staff October 25, 2016, 5:49 pm
Israel’s Foreign Ministry on Tuesday postponed a meeting to nominate a new ambassador to Turkey.The meeting, scheduled for October 27, has been pushed off and no new date has been set, according to Channel 2.A Foreign Ministry spokesperson confirmed to The Times of Israel that the meeting had been delayed, but did not offer an explanation.The recent reconciliation deal hit a bump last week, however, when a Turkish court refused to dismiss a case against members of the Israeli military, a key condition of the agreement. Dismissing the legal charges against IDF officers connected to a 2010 naval raid on a Turkish flotilla trying to breach Israel’s blockade of the Hamas-controlled Gaza Strip was a central Israeli condition for the June agreement.Appointing a new ambassador is a key component of the agreement. Earlier this month, Turkish media reported that Kemal Okem, a close associate of Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, had been selected as Turkey’s ambassador to Israel.Turkey and Israel have been planning to make an official announcement about their new ambassadors at the same time.The exchange of diplomats is the last main element of an agreement signed between the two countries.Among the terms of the deal was Israel’s payment of $20 million in compensation to Turkey for the IDF raid in 2010, during which 10 Turkish citizens were killed.The Israeli commandos were violently attacked by those on board the Turkish-flagged Mavi Marmara, and nine Turkish citizens, including one with American citizenship, were killed in the ensuing melee. A tenth died of his wounds years later. A number of Israeli soldiers were injured in the raid.
Hamas returns Arafat’s Nobel prize to PA-Medal, missing since 2007 following takeover of Gaza Strip, to go on display at new Ramallah museum-By Agencies October 25, 2016, 7:31 pm-THE TIMES OF ISRAEL
A relative of Yasser Arafat says the Hamas terror group has returned the late Palestinian leader’s 1994 Nobel Peace Prize to the Palestinian government in the West Bank.Nasser al-Kidwa, Arafat’s nephew, said Tuesday that the medal will be among dozens of Arafat’s belongings to be displayed in a new museum opening in Ramallah on November 9. Kidwa is president of the Arafat Institute.Arafat shared the Nobel prize with then-Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin and Foreign Minister Shimon Peres for reaching the 1993 Oslo interim peace agreement.Arafat died in 2004, and three years later many items at his Gaza headquarters were lost when the rival Hamas terror group seized control of the territory.Al-Kidwa said the only missing piece that Hamas has returned was the medal.
I DON'T GET IT-HOW COULD THE LIBERAL-DEMOCRAT-PROGREESIVES POSSIBLY GET JEWISH VOTES AND MONEY. WHEN CLINTON IS AGAINST EVERYTHING THE BIBLE STANDS FOR INCLUDING HATING JEWS-CHRISTIANS.
Campaigns do have something in common: Their top donors are members of the tribe-Jewish donors fill candidates’ war chests, especially Clinton’s-According to latest election filings, Democratic nominee’s 5 biggest financial backers are Jewish; so are GOP rival Trump’s top 2-By Eric Cortellessa October 25, 2016, 4:21 pm-THE TIMES OF ISRAEL
WASHINGTON — Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton may be further apart than any two presidential candidates in recent memory, but they share at least one thing in common: Jewish donors make up the top tier of those opening their checkbooks for the campaigns.According to the latest Federal Election Commission disclosure, American Jewish donors funneled more than $90 million to the presidential campaigns of Democratic nominee Clinton and her Republican opponent Trump. The controversial real estate mogul, however, has failed to gain the support of several typical GOP donors to whom a more conventional candidate might have appealed.Making their contributions through campaign committees, joint fundraising entities and allied super-PACs, Clinton’s five biggest financial backers are Jewish, and so are Trump’s top two.The largest individual donor in this cycle has been Donald Sussman, a founding partner the Paloma Partners hedge fund based in Greenwich, Connecticut. Thus far, he has given more than $20 million to Clinton’s campaign, mostly through a super PAC supporting her bid, Priorities USA Action.Clinton’s four other top donors are JB and Mary Kathryn Pritzker, Haim and Cheryl Saban, George Soros and S. Daniel Abraham. Along with Sussman, they have collectively contributed $69.7 million to the campaign, according to an assessment by Bloomberg Politics.Pritzker, founder of the Pritzker Group and scion of the famed Chicago family, donated $15 million to the former secretary of state’s bid; Saban, the Israeli-American media mogul who has long been a faithful supporter of Clinton, has given $12.5 million; Soros, a Hungarian-born business magnate, chipped in $11.8 million, far more than he gave to Barack Obama four years ago; and Abraham, an American businessman and philanthropist, contributed $9.6 million.Other prominent Jewish Americans who have poured money into Clinton’s bid include: filmmaker Steven Spielberg, fashion designer Ralph Lauren, Facebook co-founder Dustin Moskovitz and entertainment industry executive David Geffen.The amount that Jewish donors have pitched in to Clinton’s campaign far exceeds the amount granted to her adversary. Trump’s largest funder is casino magnate Sheldon Adelson, who has a propensity to donate lavishly to Republican nominees and whose donation to Trump was $10.5 million.Along with his Israeli-born wife, Miriam, Adelson bestowed at least $98 million on Republicans in the 2012 election cycle, making the couple the highest individual political donors in America that year. It is not clear exactly how much he gave to GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney that year because several of the groups to which he contributed are not required to disclose their donors.The New York Times reported late last month that the Las Vegas billionaire had given up hope Trump would prevail on November 8, and decided instead to focus on down-ballot races and on trying to secure a GOP majority in Congress.He remains the single largest overall contributor in the country for 2016, as his family has given two super PACs supporting Senate and House Republicans $20 million each.Perhaps Adelson’s biggest boost to Trump came last week, when The Las Vegas Review-Journal, an outlet he owns, became the first major newspaper to endorse the business mogul. A number of traditionally conservative publications — The Arizona Republic, The Cincinnati Enquirer, The Dallas Morning News — have endorsed Clinton.Trump’s second biggest donor is Bernard Marcus, the son of Russian-Jewish immigrants who co-founded Home Depot. He’s given $7 million to the former reality television star.Other prominent GOP Jewish backers pulling out their wallets to make large contributions for Trump are few and far between. One of the candidate’s friends whom he often mentions on the trail and has named as someone he’d consider for a spot in a Trump cabinet, corporate raider Carl Icahn, has donated a mere $50,000 to his campaign.While Clinton has attracted far more support from Jewish donors than Trump, both have accrued millions from a select assortment of billionaires. Throughout this election cycle, both candidates have repeatedly argued the wealthy have too much influence over national politics. Six years after the Supreme Court’s Citizens United case opened extensive channels for unlimited spending on elections, they both are benefiting from the aftereffects.It has usually been the case that the Democratic nominee accumulates more in donations from Jewish backers than the Republican hopeful. In 2012, for instance, 71% of the $160 million that Jewish donors contributed to the two nominees went to Obama’s re-election bid, whereas 29% went to Romney’s campaign, according to an analysis by the FiveThirtyEight political statistics analysis website.Those figures tend to align with overall political support patterns in the American Jewish community. Since 1928, an average of 75% of the Jewish vote has gone to the Democratic candidate in each presidential election. Obama lost 9% of his Jewish support from 2008 to 2012, going from 78% to 69%.The FiveThirtyEight survey noted that the GOP’s reliable Jewish donors are deserting their party’s official nominee this year. As of September 21, 95% of the donors who appear to be Jewish gave to Clinton and just 5% to Trump, it said.
