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.

We denounce the killing of innocents or any kind of aggression'-Rivlin hosts Israeli-Palestinian clerics in call for peace-Among the participants: Israel’s Sephardic Chief Rabbi and PA President Mahmoud Abbas’s Islamic affairs adviser-By Times of Israel staff October 13, 2016, 10:01 pm
Israeli President Reuven Rivlin on Thursday hosted a meeting of Israeli Jewish religious leaders with senior Palestinian Muslim clerics to issue a call against religiously inspired violence.Among those attending the conclave at the President’s Residence, hailed as the first of its kind, were Israel’s Sephardic Chief Rabbi Yitzhak Yosef and Sheikh Mahmoud Habbash, the Palestinian Supreme Sharia Court judge and Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas’s Islamic affairs adviser.“God created life and commanded life. Therefore, we denounce the killing of innocents or any kind of aggression against the other,” said a joint statement released after the meeting.“We believe the deliberate killing of or attempt to kill innocents is terrorism, whether it is committed by Muslims, Jews or others. In this spirit, we encourage all our people to work for a just peace, mutual respect for human life and for the status quo on the holy sites, and the eradication of religious hatred,” the statement said.Rivlin hailed the meeting as “important and significant.”“We all know that the tensions between Jews and Muslims are difficult and specifically for that reason we insist on meeting together here today. We must not allow this land to once again witness a sacrifice of blood senselessly spilled,” the president said.Highlighting the sensitivity of the meeting, the names of the other Palestinian religious leaders participating were not released and no photos or videos of the meeting were distributed.The meeting was organized by the Washington Institute for Near East Policy, an American think tank.“With all the stabbings and price tag (attacks) and other religiously motivated violence in the last year, there was a need for religious leaders to stand up and say that they are not only a part of the problem, but also can be part of the solution,” said David Makovsky from the Washington Institute.It took several rounds of meetings and more than a year of talks to set up this meeting, said Makovsky. “One should never assume one meeting alone can be transformative, but it could provide an important foundation to build upon,” he said, adding that organizers hoped to have a follow up meeting in Ramallah with Abbas.Other participants included two rabbis from a leading West Bank Yeshiva, Rabbi Moshe Lichtenstein, the head of Yeshivat Har Etzion in Gush Etzion and Rabbi Shlomo Brin.
PM: 'To say Israel has no link to the Temple Mount is like saying Egypt has no connection to the Pyramids'-Netanyahu leads angry denunciations of ‘absurd’ UNESCO decision-UN body’s motion ignoring Jewish link to Temple Mount draws scorn from across Israeli political spectrum, including charges of anti-Semitism-By Times of Israel staff October 13, 2016, 7:27 pm
Furious Israeli politicians accused the UN’s cultural arm of anti-Semitism Thursday in the wake of a resolution approved by UNESCO that erases the Jewish connection the Jerusalem holy sites.Lawmakers from both the right and left of the political spectrum said the decision, which refers to the Temple Mount and Western Wall only by their Muslim names and condemns Israel as “the occupying power” for various actions taken in both places, was ill-befitting of UNESCO.Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu called the decision “absurd,” while President Reuven Rivlin called it an “embarrassment” for UNESCO. The Executive Board of UNESCO is next week set to approve the resolution, which passed Thursday at the committee stage.Culture Minister Miri Regev slammed the resolution as “shameful and anti-Semitic,” and Agriculture Minister Uri Ariel called for Israel to increase the Jewish presence on the Temple Mount, a flashpoint site governed by a tense status quo, in response.“To say that Israel has no link to the Temple Mount is like saying that China has no link to the Great Wall or that Egypt has no connection to the Pyramids,” Netanyahu said, adding that “with this absurd decision UNESCO has lost what little legitimacy it still had.”He also said UNESCO was ignorant regarding the Bible, and accused the body of taking part in a “Theater of the Absurd.”What's next? A UNESCO decision denying the connection between peanut butter and jelly? Batman and Robin? Rock and roll? — Benjamin Netanyahu (@netanyahu) October 13, 2016-Twenty-four countries voted in favor of the resolution Thursday afternoon, six against and 26 abstained, though ambassador Carmel Shama-Hacohen praised the diplomatic effort that had changed several no votes in a similar resolution in April into abstentions this time around.it was “a significant accomplishment,” that countries like France, Sweden, Argentina and India, which had earlier supported the declaration, now abstained, he told Army Radio.“It’s not pleasant, ”he said, “but I’m pleased by the decision, relatively, because it was clear the decision would pass but we didn’t know which countries would support it. We had the goal of gaining back French support and our friends in Europe,” he said.(Voting in favor were: Algeria, Bangladesh, Brazil, Chad, China, Dominican Republic, Egypt, Iran, Lebanon, Malaysia, Morocco, Mauritius, Mexico, Mozambique, Nicaragua, Nigeria, Oman, Pakistan, Qatar, Russia, Senegal, South Africa, Sudan and Vietnam. Voting against were: Estonia, Germany, Lithuania, The Netherlands, United Kingdom and United States. Abstaining were: Albania, Argentina, Cameroon, El Salvador, France, Ghana, Greece, Guinea, Haiti, India, Italy, Ivory Coast, Japan, Kenya, Nepal, Paraguay, Saint Vincent and Nevis, Slovenia, South Korea, Spain, Sri Lanka, Sweden, Togo, Trinidad and Tobago, Uganda and Ukraine. Absent were: Serbia and Turkmenistan.) Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat said he was “outraged” over the decision “which denies thousands of years of Jewish connection to Jerusalem’s Western Wall.”“Would UNESCO vote to deny the Christian connection to the Vatican? Or the Muslim connection to Mecca,” he said in a statement.Opposition chief Isaac Herzog accused UNESCO of betraying their mission. “Whoever wants to rewrite history, to distort fact, and to completely invent the fantasy that the Western Wall and Temple Mount have no connection to the Jewish people, is telling a terrible lie that only serves to increase hatred.”Fellow Labor Party lawmaker Eitan Cabel called it “anti-Zionist, shameful and embarrassing.”“You can try and throw the innumerable testimonies (of a Jewish connection) into the trash, the evidence, the prayers and the archaeological discoveries. You can try and throw into the sea the millions of Jews who have touched this place with their hands and hearts,” he wrote on his Facebook page. “It won’t help you.”MK Merav Michaeli, also from the dovish party, said the resolution was the result of Netanyahu refusing to appoint a foreign minister and holding the position for himself for political capital.The left-wing Emek Shaveh organization, which says it seeks for archaeology to be decoupled from politics, said the resolution would only make a solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict more difficult.“Now that an international, professional entity like UNESCO has disregarded the deep relationship of the Jewish people to the Western Wall and the Temple Mount, they’ve only made it easier for the Israeli right to convince the Israeli public that Jerusalem is in danger,” the group said in a statement.Indeed, lawmakers from the right-wing Jewish Home party called on Netanyahu to use this opportunity to increase Jewish activity on the flash-point holy site.“Especially now, it’s on us as a government to act in defiance of these decisions and to strengthen the Temple Mount and the Jewish presence on the site holiest to the Jewish people — the Temple Mount,” said Agriculture Minister Uri Ariel.Rivlin, speaking at an event before the vote, said UNESCO was making a mockery of itself with the vote.“No forum or body in the world can come and deny the connection between the Jewish people, the Land of Israel and Jerusalem – and any such body that does so simply embarrasses itself,” Rivlin said at an event in his Jerusalem residence. “We can understand criticism, but you cannot change history”.In the US, Congressman Ted Duetch called the motion “dangerous.”#UNESCO vote dangerously seeks to rewrite Jerusalems Jewish & Christian history, rejects multi-cultural heritage https://t.co/WuAKM6Zj8Z— Rep.

AIPAC condemns an 'affront to the truth'-US Jews: UNESCO vote seeks to erase Jewish ties to Jerusalem-American, Canadian groups accuse cultural body of historical revisionism for ‘nefarious’ resolution ignoring Judaism’s link to holy sites-By Times of Israel staff October 13, 2016, 11:12 pm
American Jewish groups on Thursday lambasted the United Nations’ cultural body for adopting a resolution that ignores Jewish and Christian ties to the Temple Mount and the Western Wall, accusing the organization of rewriting history as a way of undermining the legitimacy of the State of Israel.The UNESCO (UN Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization) resolution — adopted in a 24 to 6 vote at the committee stage — used only Muslim names for the Jerusalem holy sites and was harshly critical of Israel for what it termed “provocative abuses that violate the sanctity and integrity” of the area. The Executive Board of UNESCO is set to consider, and almost certainly approve, the resolution next week.“To expunge the Jewish connection to Jerusalem is to deny the very cultural heritage of Jerusalem,” Anti-Defamation League CEO Jonathan Greenblatt said in a statement. “This is not only unethical, but it contradicts the role of UNESCO to build intercultural understanding and protect cultural heritage.”“Resolutions such as these poison the atmosphere and sow mistrust making steps toward reconciliation all the more difficult,” he charged.The resolution “deeply decries the continuous Israeli aggressions against civilians including Islamic religious figures and priests, decries the forceful entering into the different mosques and historic buildings” into Muslim holy sites by Israelis, including employees of “the so-called ‘Israeli Antiquities.’” It also urges Israel to “end these aggressions and abuses which inflame the tension on the ground and between faiths.”The Orthodox Union also condemned the UNESCO resolution for what it called “unmistakably nefarious intent.”“UNESCO’s leadership has approved a blatantly biased resolution that attempts to erase the specific deep-rooted, historical connection of Jews (and Christians) to Jerusalem, Israel’s eternal capital,” wrote OU’s public policy director Nathan Diament.The American Jewish Committee said the resolution was a case of “blatant historical revisionism.”“Let’s be clear what’s at work here: This is another attempt to undermine the very foundation of the State of Israel and the documented, age-old historical Jewish connection to the land,” said AJC chief executive David Harris, who also praised the six UNESCO member states to vote against the resolution (Estonia, Germany, Lithuania, The Netherlands, United Kingdom and United States).This #UNESCO resolution is an affront to the truth and a crude attempt to delegitimize the Jewish state. https://t.co/qO91yi4nH6— AIPAC (@AIPAC) October 13, 2016-The American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) called the resolution an “affront to the truth and a crude attempt to delegitimize the Jewish state,” which “outrageously attempts to undermine historic Jewish and Christian ties to the Old City of Jerusalem.”The Centre for Israel and Jewish Affairs, a Canada-based advocacy group, likened the UNESCO resolution to a story worthy of the satirical news website The Onion, and also highlighted what is said was disregard for Christian tradition.“1,900 years before #UNESCO, Jews prayed facing & mourned the destruction of our Temple. Our memory is not determined by a UNESCO vote,” the CIJA tweeted. “To deny Temple Mount’s Jewish roots is to erase Christian Bible too. How many faiths did #UNESCO offend today?”1/2 1,900 years before #UNESCO, Jews prayed facing & mourned the destruction of our Temple. Our memory is not determined by a UNESCO vote.— CIJA (@CIJAinfo) October 13, 2016-A statement released by the Conference of Presidents of Major Jewish Organizations slammed UNESCO for “erasing the indisputable historical connection of Jews, Christians and faith traditions other than Islam to holy sites in Jerusalem.”“This is a moral issue. There can be no equivocation,” the umbrella Jewish group said.The resolution begins by affirming the “importance of the Old City of Jerusalem and its Walls for the three monotheistic religions,” but then goes on to accuse Israel — which it consistently calls “the occupying power” — of a long list of wrongdoings.In Israel, the document was swiftly condemned by lawmakers from both the right and left as “absurd” and “anti-Semitic.”The text “firmly deplores the continuous storming” of the Al-Aqṣa Mosque/Ḥaram Al-Sharif — Muslim names for the Temple Mount compound and the mosque located there — “by Israeli right-wing extremists and uniformed forces.”It also decries Israeli works in the Western Wall Plaza, which it terms the al-Burak plaza after the Muslim name for the site.The Western Wall, the outer retaining wall of the Temple Mount, is the holiest site where Jews today can pray, and is located at the bottom of the Temple Mount, Judaism’s holiest spot as the site of the Biblical temples. It was built during the Second Temple period.The Al-Aqsa Mosque, regarded by Muslims as the third-holiest site in Islam, sits atop the Mount, known to Muslims as the Haram al-Sharif, along with the Dome of the Rock.The Temple Mount compound has been a repeated flashpoint for clashes between Palestinian protesters and Israeli security forces. While Jews are allowed to enter the site, non-Muslims cannot worship there under arrangements instituted by Israel when it captured the area from Jordan in the 1967 Six Day War.
UNESCO to vote on text describing Temple Mt, Western Wall as Muslim holy sites-In letter ahead of debate, 39 US legislators urge agency to reject resolution, slam ‘obsessive hostility towards Israel’-By Times of Israel staff October 11, 2016, 4:24 pm
A group of 39 US lawmakers called on UNESCO to oppose a resolution that would challenge Jewish and Christian historical ties to the Old City of Jerusalem.In a letter initiated by Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) and Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-Florida) to the Executive Board of the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization, the lawmakers from both houses of Congress slammed what they called the UN’s “obsessive hostility towards Israel.”That hostility, they wrote, “will be on display yet again this week as UNESCO considers another blatantly biased resolution that unjustly singles out our close ally Israel with false accusations and criticism, and attempts to erase the specific deep-rooted, historical connection of Jews and Christians to Jerusalem, Israel’s eternal capital.”UNESCO’s Executive Board is meeting in Paris from October 4 to 18. Item 25 on the board’s agenda, under the title “Occupied Palestine,” “seems to prioritize the Muslim heritage of the Old City, while diminishing the ties of either of the other religions,” the letter reads.The resolution, postponed from July’s meeting of the board in Istanbul, refers to holy sites in Jerusalem and its environs solely by their Muslim name.It refers to Hebron’s Tomb of the Patriarchs as the al-Ḥaram al-Ibrāhīmī and to Rachel’s Tomb outside Bethlehem as the Bilāl ibn Rabāḥ Mosque.According to the lawmakers, “the Temple Mount, the holiest site in Judaism, along with the Western Wall, where Jews from all over the world have come to pray, are described exclusively as Muslim holy sites and referred to only by their Muslim names. When the Western Wall is referenced, it is only with quotation marks, implying that the title is unofficial and not based on historic fact.”UNESCO & the Met want to define Jerusalem as anything but Jewish—but it is the capital of Israel, the Jewish state: https://t.co/bD9GEFHMq2— Ted Cruz (@tedcruz) October 10, 2016-Ros-Lehtinen slammed the resolution’s “ill intent.”Its purpose, she said, was “to deny the historical record of the Jewish peoples’ connections to their holiest city and to imply that Jerusalem is inconsequential to Jews and Christians, with the intent of laying the groundwork for additional UN efforts to delegitimize Israel and undermine its status as the capital of the Jewish State,” she wrote.The document relating to the agenda item shows that the resolution under discussion in Paris was itself a toned-down version of a virulently anti-Israel proposal raised in Istanbul.The resolution removed a call for a return to what it called “the historic status quo” at Jerusalem’s Temple Mount. Israel is no longer referred to as the “occupying power,” and the Western Wall is no longer referred to as the Al-Buraq Plaza.In June, the Palestinian delegation to UNESCO claimed Israel was preventing free Muslim access to the Al-Aqsa Mosque, a claim Israel has vociferously denied.Jerusalem’s Al-Aqsa Mosque is built on the site of the two biblical Jewish temples, Judaism’s holiest spot. Muslims regard it as the third-holiest site in Islam.While Jews are allowed to enter the site, their worship there is banned under arrangements instituted by Israel when it captured the area from Jordan in 1967.The latest document notes that in July “the Director-General issued a statement on the Old City of Jerusalem and its Walls… recalling notably that… the Old City of Jerusalem is the sacred city of the three monotheistic religions – Judaism, Christianity and Islam, and that each of its communities has a right to the explicit recognition of their history and relationship with the city.”
PA: UNESCO vote is call for Israel to end ‘illegal, colonial’ acts-Abbas aide says backing for resolution that ignores Jewish ties to Jerusalem’s holy sites sends ‘clear message’ to US over its support for Israel-By Stuart Winer October 13, 2016, 10:58 pm
The Palestinian Authority on Thursday hailed a resolution passed by the United Nations’ cultural arm that ignores Jewish ties to the Temple Mount and the Western Wall in Jerusalem, saying the motion was in essence a call to end Israel’s “illegal and colonial actions.”The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) resolution was adopted at the committee stage. The Executive Board of UNESCO is set to consider, and almost certainly approve, the resolution next week. Twenty-four UNESCO member states backed the resolution, while six voted against and 26 abstained at the vote held in Paris.The resolution uses only Muslim names for the holy sites and is harshly critical of Israel for what it termed “provocative abuses that violate the sanctity and integrity” of the area.The PA’s Foreign Ministry said in a statement that the resolution, along with another one condemning Israel for allegedly destroying Palestinian educational institutes in the Gaza Strip and West Bank, reflects “the continued commitment of the majority of member states to confront impunity and uphold the principles upon which UNESCO was founded.”“Palestine will continue to defend the rights of our people through all available legal and diplomatic avenues, including UN organizations. Our peaceful agenda will not be derailed by propaganda, nor will our tolerance and adherence to international law be altered by fallacies and cynical spin,” the statement said.A spokesman for PA President Mahmoud Abbas also said Thursday that the vote sends a “clear message” from the international community to the US regarding its stance on Israel.“[It’s] a clear message that the international community does not agree with the policy that protects the occupation and contributes to creating chaos and instability,” said Nabil Abu Rudeineh, according to the Palestinian Authority’s official news outlet Wafa.Abu Rudeineh said the result of the vote also shows the need for the US to “review its mistaken policy represented by its encouragement for Israel to continue its occupation of Palestinian land.”He called the resolution an “important” message to Israel to recognize a Palestinian state with East Jerusalem as its capital, and to end its policies “that contribute to the negative atmosphere in the region.”The resolution begins by affirming the “importance of the Old City of Jerusalem and its Walls for the three monotheistic religions,” but then goes on to accuse Israel — which it consistently calls “the occupying power” — of a long list of wrongdoings.It also decries Israeli works in the Western Wall Plaza, which it terms the al-Buraq plaza — the Muslim name for the site.The Western Wall — built during the Second Temple period — is the outer retaining wall of the Temple Mount and is the holiest site where Jews today can pray. It is situated at the bottom of the Temple Mount, Judaism’s holiest spot, the site of the Biblical temples.The Al-Aqsa Mosque, regarded by Muslims as the third-holiest site in Islam, sits atop the Mount, known to Muslims as the Haram al-Sharif, along with the Dome of the Rock.While Jews are allowed to enter the site, they cannot worship there under arrangements instituted by Israel when it captured the area from Jordan in the 1967 Six Day War. The Temple Mount compound has been a repeated flash-point for clashes between Palestinian protesters and Israeli security forces.The PA said it regretted that “a few countries succumbed to the PR bullying orchestrated by Israel, which shifted the focus from Israel’s illegal and colonial actions in occupied East Jerusalem to issues irrelevant to the content and objectives of the resolutions, which aims to put an end to Israel’s dangerous and illegal actions against holy sites in Jerusalem and Palestinian rights, including the right to worship.”It added: “This is especially regrettable since those member states are well aware of the dangerous situation in Jerusalem.”Israeli lawmakers on both the left and the right of the political spectrum furiously slammed the resolution. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu called the decision “absurd,” while President Reuven Rivlin branded it an “embarrassment” for UNESCO.Opposition leader Isaac Herzog of the center-left Zionist Union accused UNESCO of betraying its mission. “Whoever wants to rewrite history, to distort fact, and to completely invent the fantasy that the Western Wall and Temple Mount have no connection to the Jewish people, is telling a terrible lie that only serves to increase hatred,” he said.
11 And thou shalt say,(RUSSIA-ARAB-MUSLIMS) I will go up to the land of unwalled villages;(ISRAEL) I will go to them that are at rest, that dwell safely, all of them dwelling without walls, and having neither bars nor gates,
12 To take a spoil,(OIL IS IN SPOIL) and to take a prey; to turn thine hand upon the desolate places that are now inhabited, and upon the people that are gathered out of the nations, which have gotten cattle and goods, that dwell in the midst of the land.
13 Sheba, and Dedan,(SAUDI-ARABIA) and the merchants of Tarshish,(SPAIN) with all the young lions thereof,(ENGLAND,AND ALL ITS ASSOCIATES-CANADA,AUSTRALIA-NEW ZEALAND, USA, AND WESTERN ENGLISH SPEAKING NATIONS) shall say unto thee, Art thou come to take a spoil? hast thou gathered thy company to take a prey? to carry away silver and gold, to take away cattle and goods, to take a great spoil?(OIL IS IN SPOIL-I BELIEVE THATS WHY RUSSIA,ARAB/MUSLIMS MARCH TO ISRAEL)
14 Therefore, son of man, prophesy and say unto Gog, Thus saith the Lord GOD; In that day when my people of Israel dwelleth safely, shalt thou not know it?
15 And thou shalt come from thy place out of the north parts, thou, and many people with thee, all of them riding upon horses, a great company, and a mighty army:
16 And thou shalt come up against my people of Israel, as a cloud to cover the land; it shall be in the latter days, and I will bring thee against my land, that the heathen may know me, when I shall be sanctified in thee, O Gog, before their eyes.
17 Thus saith the Lord GOD; Art thou he of whom I have spoken in old time by my servants the prophets of Israel, which prophesied in those days many years that I would bring thee against them?
18 And it shall come to pass at the same time when Gog shall come against the land of Israel, saith the Lord GOD, that my fury shall come up in my face.
Saudi lobbyist in US urges ‘collaborative alliance’ with Israel-Salman al-Ansari says nations must not miss ‘historic opportunity’ to establish enduring relations and foster peace and prosperity-By Times of Israel staff October 12, 2016, 9:58 pm
A Saudi Arabian lobbyist in the US has called for “a collaborative alliance” between Riyadh and Jerusalem based on regional and economic interests, citing “a historic opportunity” for a new era of peace and prosperity.Salman al-Ansari, president of the recently established Saudi American Public Relations Affairs Committee in Washington DC, wrote in The Hill on Tuesday that Israel is uniquely situated to assist its neighbor in its economic development in the coming years.Israel, he noted, was “one of the most sophisticated and technologically advanced countries in the field of mining,” as well as “a world leader in the water engineering industry” — both matters of significant interest to the developing Arab Kingdom.Israel and Saudi Arabia have no formal ties. However, it has long been rumored that the two countries have held clandestine discussions on matters of regional security, and talk of warming relations has proliferated in recent months.Perhaps the chief incentive for such a thaw is the 2015 nuclear agreement between Iran and world powers — a deal that leaves Riyadh concerned over its position in the Middle East.Al-Ansari stressed that the two nations share security concerns, with both “facing constant threats from extremist groups that are directly supported by the totalitarian government of Iran.”Israel and Saudi Arabia, he argued, could serve as “the new twin pillars of regional stability,” and together could help foster peace and development throughout the Middle East.He urged leaders on both sides not to “stifle” the opportunity for both countries to develop these mutual goals.Recent months have seen various signs of the change in tone between Saudi Arabia and Israel.A media campaign in Saudi Arabia in August sought to combat anti-Semitism in the kingdom, in a possible effort to prepare public opinion for deepened relations with Israel.In late July, a retired Saudi general visited Israel, heading a delegation of academics and businessmen seeking to encourage discussion of the Saudi-led Arab Peace Initiative.Meanwhile a former Israeli minister, who met with the visiting Saudi delegation, said peace between the nations was very much “in the cards.”
Three Iranians caught in Italy with fake Israeli passports-Israel checking whether the 3, who were deported to Turkey, are tied to Iranian global terror plots against Israelis-By Times of Israel staff October 12, 2016, 11:10 pm
Three Iranian nationals were caught in Italy with forged Israeli passports, Channel 2 News reported Wednesday night.Italy updated Israeli authorities on the incident and deported the three to Turkey via Serbia, according to the report.Security officials are looking into possible connections between the three and attempts to carry out terror attacks against Israelis throughout the world.In January two Iranians were arrested in India after attempting to board a flight using fake Israeli passports. The two were reported to be a married couple who had been living in India for the past several years and intended to use the fake passports to immigrate to the United States.In 2014, two Iranians were arrested at an airport in Nairobi, Kenya, after attempting to enter the country using fake Israeli passports. They were sentenced under anti-terrorism laws to two years in prison and ordered to pay a large fine.
