ISRAEL APPROVES ANOTHER 150 HOMES IN EAST JERUSALEM ON THEIR LAND GIVIN THEM BY GOD.
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.

Tom Udall of New Mexico as saying that the Senate resolution’s language is objectionable as it does not recognize that settlements are an obstruction to peace. Udall says that should Durbin lift his hold, he would place one of his own.The Republican Jewish Coalition responds by urging its members to call Durbin’s office to “stop playing games with Israel’s security.”— JTA-16:29-Trump to Mexico leader: Pay for wall or meeting is off-Trump takes to Twitter to threaten Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto with canceling their January 31 meeting if his country refuses to pay for the wall the American leader plans to build along their shared border.“The US has a 60 billion dollar trade deficit with Mexico.

Trump talk about moving U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem has Israel buzzing-[CBC]-YAHOONEWS-January 25, 2017
The U.S. Embassy in Israel isn't much to look at it: a drab, beige building across the street from Tel Aviv's picturesque and sun-soaked beaches. But it's the diplomatic mission that has Israelis — and Palestinians — talking.Why? Two words: Donald Trump.The self-proclaimed "best friend of Israel" during his presidential campaign, he promised to move the U.S. Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, a decision that would extend American recognition of the Holy City as Israel's capital while angering Palestinians even before the first moving van hits the highway.Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat told CBC News that members of his staff have begun discussions with the Trump Administration to work out details of the move."The next step is they walk in and probably move the embassy in stages," Barkat said."The ambassador first. Have him have an office. And slowly, but gradually, move the embassy. I think it would be a very important, strong statement by the Trump administration."It would also be hugely contentious.In the long-running Israel-Palestinian conflict, the status of Jerusalem is one of the most difficult issues in the search for peace.The Holy City is the seat of the Israeli government, but there are no foreign embassies located here. Canada — like all nations with diplomatic ties to Israel — has its mission in Tel Aviv.Israelis consider Jerusalem, including territory in the eastern part of the city captured from Jordan in the Six Day War in 1967, to be its eternal and undivided capital.Palestinians lay claim to Jerusalem as the capital of their future state."Therefore any [embassy] move by the U.S. would disqualify the U.S. as any kind of peace broker or partner in peace," said Hanan Ashrawi, a senior member of the Palestine Liberation Organization."It would make [the United States] complicit in Israeli violations, and it would destroy the chances of peace and provoke extremism and violence," Ashrawi told CBC News from Ramallah, the West Bank city that is the de facto Palestinian capital.Promising to move the U.S. embassy is nothing new.During their campaigns, Bill Clinton and George W. Bush both made the same pledge, but backed off due to security concerns when they took office.In 1979, then Progressive Conservative leader Joe Clark campaigned on a promise to move the Canadian Embassy to Jerusalem, but also never followed through when he became prime minister.Trump, however, seems more serious, telling a conservative Israeli newspaper, "You know, I'm not a person who breaks promises."Palestinians have already protested Trump's plans, and there are worries of a potential uprising if the embassy transfer goes ahead. Israeli media have reported that the country's army has drawn up plans to deal with an outbreak of violence.While the decision will be made by the U.S. president, it's Israel that would face the consequences. It could lead to international criticism of Israel and harm the country's relationship with Arab neighbours, including Jordan and Egypt.The consequences of the move have some Israelis asking whether it's all worth it."We have enough challenges around us, and I think it would be a huge mistake to turn the matter of the embassy into a central one," Israeli Defence Minister Avigdor Lieberman said at a security forum in December.With that kind of skepticism in mind, some Israeli political analysts have begun to parse the latest words from the White House, seeing an administration that may be dragging its feet on the issue."There's no decision" on the embassy move, said Sean Spicer, the White House spokesman on Monday. "We're at the very early stages of that decision-making process."Alon Pinkas, a former Israeli consul general in New York, said the Trump administration is "kind of scaling back" the embassy move."They're not ruling it out, but they're not going to do this as a first order of business."Pinkas wouldn't speculate whether he thinks Trump will follow through with his campaign promise by the end of his term, but he's hopeful."Imagine if Israel is declaring that they're going to move their embassy to Toronto or Montreal because they don't respect Ottawa as the capital of Canada," Pinkas said in Tel Aviv. "I mean, how ridiculous will that seem?"
Netanyahu, Giuliani meet in run-up to summit with Trump-Confidant to new US president delivers message of ‘friendship’ to Israeli leader-By Times of Israel staff and JTA January 26, 2017, 2:40 pm
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu met with former New York City mayor and confidant of US President Donald Trump Rudy Giuliani Thursday morning, with the Prime Minister’s Office saying in a statement that Giuliani delivered a personal message from Trump to the prime minister in anticipation of their scheduled meeting in early February.Giuliani, who is serving as an unofficial adviser on cybersecurity for the Trump administration, told Fox News earlier this week that he might pass a message of friendship from the US president to Netanyahu during his time in Israel.Appearing Monday morning on “Fox and Friends,” Giuliani was asked whether he will be relaying a message to Netanyahu from Trump during a business trip starting that evening.“If I do, it’ll be from him,” Giuliani said. “But I can give the general message, which is ‘I like you very much and we’re very good friends.’“They were friends even before. This is not a new relationship, but now obviously it’s a much more important one,” Giuliani said.On Sunday, Netanyahu spoke with Trump by telephone for the first time since the latter’s inauguration, marking what some Israeli officials hope will be the start of a reset in ties with the US after years of strained relations with the administration of former US president Barack Obama.Trump invited Netanyahu to visit Washington in February during the phone call, with a final date to be set in the coming days, a statement released Sunday from the PMO said.Trump told reporters after the half-hour phone call that his conversation with Netanyahu was “very nice,” a sentiment the prime minister echoed on Monday when he said during a Likud faction meeting that their chat was “very warm.”According to Netanyahu’s office the two leaders discussed the Iran deal, the peace process, and “other issues,” while “the prime minister expressed his desire to work closely with President Trump to forge a common vision to advance peace and security in the region, with no daylight between the United States and Israel,” Sunday’s statement saidGiuliani is in Israel for his law firm, Greenberg Trauring. Guiliani said his meeting with Netanyahu is something he does every time he visits Israel, since the two men have been friends for 25 years.
Palestinians say Obama’s last-minute $221 million payout frozen by Trump-Source says State Department has notified Ramallah the funds will not be immediately available, while it examines the transfer-By Avi Issacharoff and AP January 25, 2017, 7:43 pm-THE TIMES OF ISRAEL
The Trump administration has informed the Palestinian Authority that it is freezing the transfer of $221 million which was quietly authorized by the Obama administration in its final hours on January 20, a senior Palestinian source has told The Times of Israel.US officials conveyed to PA Prime Minister Rami Hamdallah on Tuesday that the funds were not expected to be handed over in the immediate future, said the source, who spoke on the condition of anonymity.On Tuesday, the State Department said it was reviewing the last-minute decision by former secretary of state John Kerry to send the funds to the Palestinians despite objections to the transfer by congressional Republicans.The department said it would look at the payment and might make adjustments to ensure it comports with the Trump administration’s priorities.The Obama administration had for some time been pressing for the release of the money for the Palestinian Authority, which comes from the US Agency for International Development, known as USAID, and is to be used for humanitarian aid in the West Bank and Gaza to support political and security reforms, as well as help prepare for good governance and the rule of law in a future Palestinian state, according to the notification sent to Congress.Even without the $221 million, the Palestinian source noted that in 2016 the PA received $250 million from the US government.These funds included $180 million from USAID, $25 million to support Palestinian hospitals and $45 million to pay for fuel purchased from Israel.Congress had initially approved the Palestinian funding in budget years 2015 and 2016, but at least two GOP lawmakers — Ed Royce of California, the chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, and Kay Granger of Texas, who sits on the House Appropriations Committee — had placed holds on it over moves the Palestinian Authority had taken to seek membership in international organizations. Congressional holds are generally respected by the executive branch but are not legally binding after funds have been allocated.Kerry formally notified Congress that State would release the extra $221 million money Friday morning, just hours before President Donald Trump took the oath of office.Granger released a statement Tuesday saying, “I am deeply disappointed that President Obama defied congressional oversight and released $221 million to the Palestinian territories.”She added: “I worked to make sure that no American taxpayer dollars would fund the Palestinian Authority unless very strict conditions were met. While none of these funds will go to the Palestinian Authority because of those conditions, they will go to programs in the Palestinian territories that were still under review by Congress. The Obama Administration’s decision to release these funds was inappropriate.”
US warns of anti-American violence risk in Turkey-American consulate says ‘extremist groups’ are persisting in ‘frequent and aggressive efforts to attack US citizens’-By AFP January 26, 2017, 4:42 pm-THE TIMES OF ISRAEL
The United States embassy in Turkey on Thursday warned against the risk of attacks against its citizens in the country after a rise in anti-American rhetoric.Turkey has been hit by a slew of attacks over the last months claimed by jihadists and Kurdish militants that have left the country on edge.In the latest strikes, 39 people were gunned down in an attack on New Year’s night claimed by Islamic State jihadists at an Istanbul nightclub.Just three weeks earlier, 46 people were killed in a double suicide bombing claimed by Kurdish militants close to the stadium of the Besiktas football club.The attacks prompted claims in the radical conservative press that the United States had a hand in the violence, although the allegations have been repeatedly and angrily denied by the embassy.“An increase in anti-American rhetoric has the potential to inspire independent actors to carry out acts of violence against US citizens,” the embassy said in a travel warning.It said new attacks could occur at major events, tourist sites, restaurants, nightclubs, shopping centres, places of worship, and transportation hubs.An October order for family members of employees posted to the US Consulate in Istanbul to depart Turkey temporarily remains in place, it added.Meanwhile, all US government travel to Istanbul is subject to State Department approval, it said.This is based on intelligence “indicating extremist groups are continuing frequent and aggressive efforts to attack US citizens and foreign expatriates in areas of Istanbul where they reside or frequent,” it said.Several Turkish officials and media outlets blamed the United States for the failed July 15 coup aimed at toppling President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, allegations ridiculed by Washington.The alleged mastermind of the plot, the preacher Fethullah Gulen, lives in the United States but has denied any links to the putsch.Washington has so far not yielded to persistent Turkish requests to extradite Gulen, increasing tensions in relations and raising the hackles of Erdogan’s supporters.In another sign of the poor atmosphere, Erdogan on December 27 accused the United States of supporting “terror groups” in Syria, even including Islamic State jihadists.
Truck driver turns himself in after smashing dozens of cars in Tel Aviv-After initially fled scene, man came to police after public appeal to track him down, sent for questioning-By Times of Israel staff January 26, 2017, 4:10 pm
A truck driver, who sparked a police manhunt in Tel Aviv on Thursday, after he hit dozens of parked cars on two narrow streets in the city and fled the scene, turned himself in to police.Police said that the 33-year-old resident of Petah Tikva came to them voluntarily and was sent for questioning.Earlier the man contacted police after they issued an appeal for public help in tracking him down. They were seeking any information that could help locate the driver and his truck.Video recorded by a fellow driver shows the truck banging and scraping the cars as it makes it way down Mazeh and Strauss streets in central Tel Aviv.Ynet quoted an eyewitness who said the driver was aware of the damage he was doing, yet failed to stop.“I approached him and asked him what he was doing, and in response he swore at me and carried on zigzagging between the cars,” the eyewitness, Rami Raz, told Ynet.No one was hurt in the incident and police stressed that they do not believe it was terror-related.
Stop playing with the generals,’ Lapid told Bennett during Gaza war-Fresh leaks from secretive security cabinet reveal sharp strife among top ministers during the 2014 conflict-By Times of Israel staff January 26, 2017, 3:48 pm
Further animosity between senior Israeli officials during the 2014 war with Gaza cabinet discussions was revealed Thursday as more explosive leaks from those meetings came to light.Ahead of the impending release of a State Comptroller report said to be fiercely critical of Israel’s political and military command during war, Yedioth Ahronoth published a second round of transcripts painting a picture of a deeply fractious leadership before and throughout the military operation.The latest excerpts reveal a web of distrust and discontent between the then-ministers of defense, foreign affairs, finance and education, and a general skepticism toward the information being provided by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.In a transcript from July 1, 2014, a day after the bodies of three Israeli teenagers kidnapped and murdered by a Hamas cell were found, then-education minister Naftali Bennett hurls criticism at then-defense minister Moshe Ya’alon for what he calls a “weak and disgraceful” response.A day later, Yair Lapid, who served at the time as finance minister slams Bennett for “playing with the generals” suggesting they were underplaying the treat of terror-tunnel emanating from Gaza.In the months before the kidnapping, the IDF had uncovered a number of tunnels from Gaza reaching into Israel, leading to assessments that Hamas terrorists were planning a large-scale attack. Bennett has contended that the security cabinet was not given enough information about the threat.“I demand a plan for the tunnels,” Bennett tells the security cabinet on June 2, according to the Yedioth transcript.“The tunnel problem is new and we have no response,” Netanyahu responds before Ya’alon interrupts to contradict the prime minister. “We are ready with plans,” Ya’alon says.Frustrated, Lapid tells Bennett: “The debate about neutralizing the tunnel threat is not for the security cabinet. This isn’t a battalion commanders’ forum.”“This is really not for battalion commanders, this is for the security cabinet,” Bennett says.“Stop playing with the generals,” Lapid replies.State Comptroller Yosef Shapira’s report — the public release of which the Knesset pushed off on Tuesday due to security considerations — is said to show bitter infighting among members of the security cabinet, especially between Ya’alon and Bennett over the conduct of the war in Gaza, dubbed Operation Protective Edge.Leaked transcripts published by Yedioth Ahronoth on Monday highlighted the bitter divide between Ya’alon and Bennett, with the two clashing over Israel’s approach to the war and how aggressive a response to take to the threat of attack tunnels built by Hamas reaching into Israel.Thursday’s excerpts show Ya’alon accusing Bennett of undermining him by contacting senior field officers behind his back.“You will not run my army, you will not come from the field and tell me, ‘we should do this, we shouldn’t do this,’ you hear?” Ya’alon tells Bennet during a July 15 meeting.“I will, if the truth is not being reported,” Bennett replies.The conflict between the two reached new heights this week, as Ya’alon and Bennett traded barbs at the Institute for National Security Studies’ conference in Tel Aviv on Tuesday, with Ya’alon hinting that Bennett leaked the conversations of the cabinet meetings “to get a few ‘likes’ on Facebook,” while Bennett characterized the military’s approach under Ya’alon as being defined by “rigidity and footslogging.”Following the latest Yedioth report, Ya’alon accused Bennett of causing damage to the cabinet and its procedures, the Hebrew-language Walla News site reported.The new transcripts also shed light on how the ministers differed in their approach to accepting a Hamas ceasefire.In a conversation reported to have taken place on July 15, a week into the fighting and two days before the ground operation was launched, Ya’alon and Netanyahu try to persuade the cabinet to accept an offer from Hamas to end hostilities.“The IDF’s accomplishments are excellent. Now we need to decide whether we accept the ceasefire,” then-IDF chief of Staff Benny Gantz tells the security cabinet.“There is willingness on Hamas’s part to end the escalation. That much is clear,” head of the Military Intelligence Directorate at the time, Aviv Kochavi says.Both Ya’alon and Netanyahu appear to be in favor of accepting a deal.“We’ve won,” Netanyahu says. “We inflicted 180 losses [of lives] on them. We must demand the demilitarization of the tunnels and the elimination of rockets.”But Bennett objects to the ceasefire, saying that, “The tunnels haven’t been destroyed, we must destroy them first.”
