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.

Outpost bill makes return to Knesset after coalition overrides opposition objections-AG says government can use parliamentary regulations to shorten deliberations on bid to legalize settlement homes built on private Palestinian land-By Times of Israel staff January 31, 2017, 10:55 am
The Knesset was to begin a week-long debate Tuesday on a controversial bill to legalize some 4,000 homes in West Bank settlements built on privately owned Palestinian land, after coalition lawmakers used a clause in the Knesset regulations to override the opposition’s request for over a month of deliberations.The legislation, known as the Regulation Bill, was originally scheduled to pass into law on Monday evening. However, opposition MKs sought to introduce hundreds of revisions to the bill and requested 38 days of debate on the legislation, plus an additional two days for voting. The vote was then pushed off until a compromise on the time frame was reached.Due to the stalemate, Attorney General Avichai Mandelblit informed the powerful Knesset House Committee — tasked with setting which bills come up in the plenum — it may use Clause 98 if a compromise could not be reached. The clause is a provision that allows for the significant shortening of a period of debate for a given piece of legislation.Israel Radio reported Tuesday morning that with the coalition’s implementation of Clause 98, the bill will be introduced in the plenum that afternoon for a debate that will run until 9 a.m. Wednesday morning. At that point, the Knesset will determine the schedule for further deliberations to run until Thursday morning. The bill is scheduled to be brought before the plenum next Monday for its second and third readings.Coalition chairman David Bitan told Israel Radio that the opposition’s intransigence forced the coalition to resort to Clause 98.The “meaningless reservations that were presented by [the opposition],” were what “obliged [the coalition] to use Clause 98 of the regulations to prevent the debasement of the Knesset,” Bitan said.Zionist Union MK Merav Michaeli, chair of the opposition, accused the coalition of acting out of cowardice and refusing to hear any dissent on the legislation.“If it were not enough that the coalition is bringing forward an illegal law, they don’t have the bravery to hear a true debate and to listen to the destructive results of this law,” Michaeli told Israel Radio.Condemned by the Obama administration, the European Union, the United Nations and Israel’s attorney general, the so-called Regulation Law is being hailed by the settler movement as a turning point in the 50-year settlement project. Once passed, supporters say, the era of evacuating Jewish settlements will be over, though the measure will not cover the doomed Amona outpost, slated for evacuation by early next month.The legislation had been taken off the Knesset slate late last year, as Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu reportedly waited for Obama to leave office. On Sunday, he announced it would come back for a vote this week.The final draft of the bill outlines the procedures for legalizing unauthorized construction on private land and compensating the Palestinian landowners. It also immediately freezes administrative proceedings in 16 West Bank settlements for a period of 12 months. As the text stands, it does not apply to buildings that have received final demolition orders from Israeli courts, effectively excluding the outpost of Amona, which is set to be razed by next Wednesday.The proposed bill stipulates that settlement construction in the West Bank that was carried out in good faith, without knowledge that the land was privately owned, would be recognized by the government, provided the settlers show some kind of state support in establishing themselves at the site. This support could in some cases be as minimal as having access to public infrastructure.Under the terms of the bill, the government will be able to appropriate land for its own use if the owners are unknown. If the owners are known, they will be eligible for either yearly damages amounting to 125 percent of the value of leasing the land, a larger financial package valued at 20 years’ worth of leasing the plots, or alternate plots.Attorney General Avichai Mandelblit has warned that the Regulation Bill breaches both local and international law, and indicated that the High Court was likely to strike it down. Some officials, including Netanyahu himself, have also warned that the law could see Israeli officials brought before the International Criminal Court in The Hague.Marissa Newman and Raoul Wootliff contributed to this report.
We hope the Israeli government's over-excitement will soon be proven unfounded'-PA hasn’t given up on Trump, senior official says-Husam Zomlot, who may be the next envoy to the US, says Washington has yet to reach out to the Palestinians, but doesn’t subscribe to idea that the White House is completely in Israel’s corner-By Dov Lieber January 31, 2017, 8:04 am-THE TIMES OF ISRAEL
The Palestinian Authority believes US President Donald Trump has not abandoned long-held policies in Washington regarding the Israel-Palestinian conflict, a senior Palestinian official reportedly slated to be the next envoy to the US said Monday.Husam Zomlot, a senior political adviser to PA President Mahmoud Abbas, said the Trump administration had yet to reach out to the PA. But despite the apparent cold shoulder, Ramallah is not taking for granted that Washington will shift under Trump to align with the Israeli right wing, as many have predicted, Zomlot said.“Our expectation is that the long-held US policies with regards to the illegality of the settlements, the status of Jerusalem and with regards to the contours of the solution will remain,” said Zomlot.“We did not hear any change of these long-held US policies up until today. Until we hear otherwise, this will be our working assumption,” he added.During the first week of Trump’s presidency, Israel approved the construction of 2,500 new homes to be built in West Bank settlements, as well as the construction of 566 housing units in East Jerusalem, and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu vowed more of the same was to come.The US has yet to respond to the announcements and when asked, White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer offered only that Trump would discuss the matter with Netanyahu when the Israeli leader visits in February.Zomlot said he does not believe the silence of the Trump administration is a tacit approval for settlement construction.“The Trump administration is not yet fully formed,” he said, pointing out that Secretary of State Rex Tillerson has yet to take office.“It’s premature to judge. We hope the Israeli government’s over-excitement will soon be proven unfounded,” he added.Zomlot argued that the idea that Trump will allow unfettered Israeli settlement construction is an unfounded narrative being pushed by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.“It is not the US administration that is acting at this point in time; it is the Netanyahu government that is acting, thinking that in this limbo [of the presidential transition] it could actually reshape US policy and recruit President Trump to abandon the two state solution, as [Israel] did,” he said.Netanyahu recently said he was willing to give the Palestinians “not exactly a state with full authority, rather a state minus,” but did not elaborate further.However, the Palestinians have argued that Netanyahu’s commitment to building settlements in the West Bank shows he is only playing lip-service to the two-state solution.Trump’s appointment for ambassador to Israel David Friedman has expressed support for and funded construction in Israeli settlements, and has expressed doubt about the need for a two-state solution.When asked whether this appointment was a signal from the Trump administration, Zomlot responded, “Ambassadors do not make national policies. They are the conveyors of national policies. They are not decision makers.”But Zomlot conceded that there is “worry” within the PA.“But we are not speculators here. We will only act based on information and direct engagement with the new administration,” he added.It’s not clear when Zomlot, who for years has acted as a Palestinian representative in meeting with American officials, might replace Maen Areikat, the current ambassador to the US. Reports emerged in October that he had been tapped for the post, on the eve of a major Fatah congress.Despite the lack of contact between Ramallah and Washington, Zomlot maintained the PA will “have contacts with the new administration once it is intact.”“We expect to be invited to the White House and State Department once the new administration is fully operative. We have been a key partner of the US for decades and expect no change,” he said.-US could ‘disqualify itself’ as mediator-Zomlot pointed out that in the past Trump has said he was keen to make a peace deal, and that when the president appointed his son-in-law Jared Kusher to be his envoy to the region, he also expressed enthusiasm that Kushner could make peace.In an interview aired Monday, Trump seemed to acknowledge for the first time that the Palestinian side’s claims would have to be dealt with, saying there were “two sides” to the issue of moving the US Embassy to Jerusalem. Abbas has warned that the PA might revoke its recognition of Israel if the embassy is moved.But given the signals that the Trump administration might not hew as closely to the idea of the two-state solution as past administrations, Zomlot warned the US would thus be de facto “disqualifying itself” from the job of mediator between Israelis and Palestinians.“The US engagement since 1991, all of the agreements written and signed, are based on the two-state solution along 1967 lines,” he said.Zomlot stressed that even if the US withdraws its support for a two-state solution, the PA will continue to pursue it, including by pursuing multilateral efforts in the international arena.“[Would a US withdrawal] from the two-state solution mean it is over? No. It just means we need to look for a new strategy to achieve the same goal. And we believe international law and consensus, as reconfirmed in the recent UNSC Resolution 2334, multilateralism and reestablishing international political sponsorship towards finding a solution as manifested in the Paris peace conference two weeks ago, is the way forward,” he said.The 70 countries who recently met in Paris as part of the French peace initiative reaffirmed that a two-state solution is the only one acceptable to the international community and called on both sides to act accordingly.After the meeting in Paris, Abbas said he would meet in the near future with French President Francis Holland to see how to advance the initiative.Israel has rejected the French initiative, arguing only bilateral negotiations will prove fruitful.During a phone call with Netanyahu last week, Trump also said bilateral negotiations were the only way forward, according to a White House readout of the call.
Israel, Mexico presidents to speak to smooth over rift-Two countries work to get past crisis over Netanyahu tweet praising border walls-By Times of Israel staff January 31, 2017, 10:30 am
President Reuven Rivlin on Tuesday was set to speak to his Mexican counterpart in a bid to smooth over a diplomatic rift caused by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s Twitter praise for building walls to keep out refugees.Rivlin’s planned phone call with Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto came a day after Israel’s Ambassador to Mexico Yoni Peled met with Mexico’s deputy foreign minister as part of efforts to soothe Mexico City’s wounded response to the prime minister’s post. The tweet was perceived as offering an endorsement of US President Donald Trump’s plan to build a wall along the US-Mexico border.Netanyahu on Saturday posted a Twitter message that read: “President Trump is right. I built a wall along Israel’s southern border. It stopped all illegal immigration. Great success. Great idea.” The prime minister later denied the post had anything to do with Mexico.Trump made construction of a controversial anti-immigration wall between the US and Mexico a key plank of his election campaign. One of his first acts after inauguration as president was to sign an executive order to begin work on the wall.President Trump is right. I built a wall along Israel's southern border. It stopped all illegal immigration. Great success. Great idea— Benjamin Netanyahu (@netanyahu) January 28, 2017-In an interview with Fox News on Thursday, Trump appeared to be touting Israel’s border know-how as an example of a successful deterrent to unlawful entry into a country.“The wall is necessary,” Trump said. “That’s not just politics, and yet it is good for the heart of the nation in a certain way, because people want protection and a wall protects. All you’ve got to do is ask Israel. They were having a total disaster coming across and they had a wall. It’s 99.9 percent stoppage.”On Saturday, Mexican officials phoned Jerusalem and angrily demanded a clarification on the tweet.Mexican Foreign Minister Luis Videgaray reportedly called on Netanyahu to apologize, saying his comments “felt like an act of aggression.”“We hope that Israel’s government will be sensitive enough to correct Netanyahu’s statement,” Videgaray said.Mexico’s Foreign Ministry said in a communique that it had expressed its “profound surprise, rejection and disappointment in the prime minister’s message on Twitter” to Israel’s ambassador. “Mexico is Israel’s friend and should be treated as such.”On Monday, Netanyahu denied that his tweet had constituted support for Trump’s border wall with Mexico. He told the weekly Likud faction meeting he had merely been responding to Trump’s praise for the Egypt border in the social media post, which was later retweeted by the US president. “Who even mentioned Mexico?” asked the prime minister.Backtracking after Mexican officials demanded a clarification, a spokesman for the Israeli Foreign Ministry stressed Saturday that Netanyahu was not commenting on US-Mexican relations.“[Netanyahu] referred to our specific security experience which we are willing to share,” spokesman Emmanuel Nahshon wrote on Twitter. “We do not express a position on US-Mexico relations.”
Trump fires acting attorney general for ordering staff not to defend refugee ban-White House says Sally Yates, a Democratic appointee, ‘betrayed’ Justice Department by refusing to enforce ‘legal order’ to protect US citizens-By Agencies and Times of Israel staff January 31, 2017, 4:44 am
WASHINGTON — US President Donald Trump on Monday fired the acting attorney general, a holdover from the Obama administration, after she ordered Justice Department attorneys not to defend his controversial executive order on immigration.“The acting attorney general, Sally Yates, has betrayed the Department of Justice by refusing to enforce a legal order designed to protect the citizens of the United States,” the White House said in a statement.“President Trump relieved Ms Yates of her duties and subsequently named Dana Boente, US attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia, to serve as acting attorney general until Senator Jeff Sessions is finally confirmed by the Senate.”The statement called Yates an Obama administration appointee “who is weak on borders and very weak on illegal immigration.”Trump had earlier complained of being saddled with an “Obama A.G.” in a tweet.The Democrats are delaying my cabinet picks for purely political reasons. They have nothing going but to obstruct. Now have an Obama A.G.— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 31, 2017-Yates had indicated earlier Monday that she was not convinced Trump’s executive order barring travel and immigration from seven Muslm-majority countries was legal.Yates’ abrupt decision reflected the dissent over the order, with administration officials moving to distance themselves from the policy. As protests erupted at airports over the weekend and confusion disrupted travel around the globe, some of Trump’s top advisers and fellow Republicans privately noted they were not consulted about the policy.At least three top national security officials — Defense Secretary James Mattis, Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly and Rex Tillerson, who is awaiting confirmation to lead the State Department — have told associates they were not aware of details of directive until around the time Trump signed it. Leading intelligence officials were also left largely in the dark, according to US officials.Tennessee Sen. Bob Corker, the top Republican on the Senate Foreign Relations committee, said that despite White House assurances that congressional leaders were consulted, he learned about the order in the media.The fallout was immediate: Friction between Trump and his top advisers and a rush by the Pentagon to seek exemptions to the policy. The White House approach also sparked an unusually public clash between a president and the civil servants tasked with carrying out his policy.Other parts of Trump’s administration were voicing dissent Monday. A large group of American diplomats circulated a memo voicing their opposition to the order, which temporarily halted the entire US refugee program and banned all entries from seven Muslim-majority nations for 90 days. In a startlingly combative response, White House spokesman Sean Spicer challenged those opposed to the measure to resign.“They should either get with the program or they can go,” Spicer said.The blowback underscored Trump’s tenuous relationship with his own national security advisers, many of whom he met for the first time during the transition, as well as with the government bureaucracy he now leads. While Trump outlined his plan for temporarily halting entry to the US from countries with terror ties during the campaign, the confusing way in which it finally was crafted stunned some who have joined his team.Mattis, who stood next to Trump during Friday’s signing ceremony, is said to be particularly incensed. A senior US official said Mattis, along with Joint Chiefs Chairman Joseph Dunford, was aware of the general concept of Trump’s order but not the details. Tillerson has told the president’s political advisers that he was baffled over not being consulted on the substance of the order.US officials and others with knowledge of the Cabinet’s thinking insisted on anonymity in order to disclose the officials’ private views.Trump’s order pauses America’s entire refugee program for four months and indefinitely bans all those from war-ravaged Syria. Critics dispute the president’s assertion that the policy is needed to keep Americans safe, noting that recent acts of extremist violence have been carried out either by US citizens or by individuals whose families weren’t from the nations singled out in the order.The president has privately acknowledged flaws in the rollout, according to a person with knowledge of his thinking. But he’s also blamed the media — his frequent target — for what he believes are reports exaggerating the dissent and the number of people actually affected.Trump has also said he believes the voters who carried him to victory support the plan as a necessary step to safeguard the nation. And he’s dismissed objectors as attention-seeking rabble-rousers and grandstanding politicians.After a chaotic weekend during which some US legal permanent residents were detained at airports, some agencies were moving swiftly to try to clean up after the White House.Homeland Security, the agency tasked with implementing much of the refugee ban, clarified that customs and border agents should allow legal residents to enter the country. The Pentagon was trying to exempt Iraqis who worked alongside the US and coalition forces from the 90-day ban on entry from the predominantly Muslim countries.“There are a number of people in Iraq who have worked for us in a partnership role, whether fighting alongside us or working as translators, often doing so at great peril to themselves,” said Navy Capt. Jeff Davis, a Pentagon spokesman.Policies with such broad reach are typically vetted by affected agencies and subject to review by multiple agencies. It’s a process that can be frustratingly slow but is aimed at avoiding unintended consequences.On Capitol Hill, lawmakers in Trump’s party sought to distance themselves from the wide-ranging order.While Spicer said “appropriate committees and leadership offices” on Capitol Hill were consulted, GOP lawmakers said their offices had no hand in drafting the order and no briefings from the White House on how it would work.“I think they know that it could have been done in a better way,” Corker said of the White House.The executive order was largely crafted by Steve Bannon, Trump’s chief strategist, and Stephen Miller, a young policy adviser and former congressional aide to Trump’s pick for attorney general, Sen. Jeff Sessions. Spicer insisted the advisers had kept departments “in the loop at the level necessary,” but he sidestepped questions about whether Cabinet secretaries were directly involved in the process.Some Trump supporters defended the president, saying his actions should not have come as a surprise given his positions during the campaign.“Nothing he did over the weekend was new,” said Newt Gingrich, the former House speaker and an informal adviser. He conceded that coordination could have been better, but he said Trump’s vow to quickly bring change to Washington will sometimes mean he needs to prioritize fast action over broad consultation.
Jerusalem strike intensifies as daycare centers join municipal walkout-Standoff between city, Treasury deepens on day 3 of wage row that sees capital without garbage collectors, welfare services-By Times of Israel staff January 31, 2017, 6:46 am
Municipal day care centers in Jerusalem were shut on Tuesday as a municipality strike entered its third day amid a budgetary standoff between the city and the Finance Ministry over unpaid wages.Programs for special-needs children would continue normally, Israel Radio reported, but other municipal services including garbage collection, welfare and social services, would be non-operational for a third day.The municipality announced a general strike on Sunday because its 2017 budget has not yet been transferred to the city by the Finance Ministry.On Monday, Jerusalem high schools and middle schools started at 10 a.m. and kindergarten afternoon programs were canceled altogether.Hundreds of demonstrators also blocked major roads in the capital’s downtown area Monday, near the Prime Minister’s Residence, to demand an end to the public spat over city funding.Elsewhere in the city, large buildups of garbage disrupted the light rail service. Outside the Mahane Yehuda market on Jaffa Road, uncollected trash spilled out onto the train tracks, limiting service in downtown Jerusalem.The ongoing dispute has featured biting public arguments between city and Finance Ministry officials.The municipality says that if the Finance Ministry does not transfer the funds, it will be forced to lay off staff and the quality of services in the city will drop.Paz Cohen, head of the Jerusalem teachers’ organization, on Sunday said that auxiliary teachers had not been paid a salary since the beginning of the school year in September.Mayor Nir Barkat called on Finance Minister Moshe Kahlon to personally intervene to ensure the money is transferred immediately, “to prevent more suffering for the city’s residents.”However, the Finance Ministry claims the lack of funds is a result of mismanagement, and asked Interior Minister Aryeh Deri to appoint a city accountant to stop the municipality from holding Jerusalem residents “hostage to foreign interests.”In response, the municipality bitterly denied the accusations of mismanagement under Barkat and accused the treasury of waging a dishonest media campaign.“We are sorry that the Finance Ministry uses lying media spin instead of strengthening the city. The challenges of the capital are the challenges of the country,” the municipality statement said.“In contradiction to the lies of the Finance Ministry, throughout the entire Barkat era the municipality has never been in deficit and it even earned prizes from the Interior Ministry for the proper use of its finances and its transparent conduct.”“If you’re the reformer, you need the momentum,” Gingrich said.
