EGYPT BEEFS UP SECURITY AROUND CHURCHES AHEAD OF EASTER.
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.

Egypt beefs up security around churches ahead of Easter-With Copts under attack, forces dispatched outside places of worship across country for festival celebrations-By Heba Afify April 13, 2017, 2:51 am-THE TIMES OF ISRAEL
CAIRO (AP) — Outside of Cairo’s St. Mark’s Cathedral, the seat of the Coptic Orthodox Pope, a dozen high-ranking police officers are stationed on all entrances, searching cars and scanning the area, as security measures are visibly beefed up outside churches before Easter prayers on Sunday.The usually festive occasion is tainted with fearful apprehension after twin bombings in the cities of Tanta and Alexandria killed 45 people this week at churches on Palm Sunday, which marks the start of the Coptic Christian Holy Week.The increased security measures on display outside churches across the country are meant to restore a sense of security for Egypt’s Copts amid a war on the embattled minority declared by the Islamist State group, which claimed Sunday’s bombings. However, the enhanced security can do little against the effect of repeated attacks on Coptic churches in recent years.“No security measure can stop a suicide bomber with jihadist beliefs from blowing up a church,” Coptic engineer Emad Thomas told The Associated Press on Wednesday. However, he believes that Copts will still attend prayers on Sunday as they have continued to go to church despite earlier attacks. “Egypt’s Copts put their trust in God and not in security measures,” he said.Egypt’s Ministry of Interior announced on Wednesday the identity of the Alexandria church bomber, saying that he belongs to the same terrorist cell that carried out the December bombing of a chapel adjacent to Egypt’s main cathedral. The ministry identified the suicide bomber as Mahmoud Hassan Mubarak Abdallah, a 30-year-old worker at a petroleum company, and published his picture. It also published names and pictures of others identified as fugitive members of the same cell, offering LE100 thousand ($5,510) for leads on their whereabouts. The Health Ministry said six Muslims were among the dead in Alexandria.Outside of St. Joseph Roman Catholic Church in Cairo’s central downtown area, a military tank is stationed with five soldiers on top — one of the more overt manifestations of President Abdel Fattah El-Sissi’s declaration of a three-month state of emergency.In the southern city of Assiut, security barriers closed off an area of about 100-meters around large churches. A local security source told the AP that agents will be dispersed ahead of Sunday’s prayers and a special unit will be formed at the security directorate to receive reports about suspicious individuals in the vicinity of churches. A military source said that troops have started patrolling the city and will be stationed across town before Sunday. Both officials spoke on condition of anonymity as they were not authorized to brief the media.In the neighboring city of Minya, home to the highest Coptic Christian population in the country, the Coptic Orthodox Diocese said that celebrations will only be limited to the liturgical prayers “without any festive manifestations,” in mourning for Sunday’s victims.Peter Naggar, a Coptic lawyer, saw the enhanced security around churches as an effort to appease Copts, many of whom blame the state for failing to protect them. In the Tanta attack, the bomber was able to enter the church and reach the front rows before blowing himself up.“The government should have taken these measures before the Coptic celebrations season and not after disaster struck,” he said.After claiming the December church bombing that killed 25 worshippers, the Islamic State group vowed in a statement circulated online to continue its war on Egypt’s Copts.The group continues to target security in the Sinai Peninsula almost daily while carrying out sporadic operations in mainland Egypt. According to SITE Intelligence Group, which tracks online activity of militants, the IS-affiliated Amaq news agency announced on Tuesday that the group has killed 172 soldiers in Sinai since the beginning of the year.The latest church bombings deal another blow to Egypt’s struggling tourism industry, which has suffered from political instability and a fragile security situation since the 2011 uprising. The U.S. issued a travel warning on Wednesday, advising its nationals in Egypt to stay away from places of worship for the next two weeks and to avoid crowds as long as they remain in the country.
Jordan, Egypt have ‘special’ relationship with Israel, says Jordanian king-Monarch says he was ‘struck’ by Trump’s commitment to solve the Israeli-Palestinian conflict-By Times of Israel staff April 11, 2017, 4:57 pm
Jordan and Egypt have a “special” relationship with Israel, said Jordan’s King Abdullah II, as the only two Arab nations to have signed a peace treaty with the Jewish state.In an interview with the Washington Post ahead of his meeting with US President Donald Trump on Wednesday, the monarch spoke about the raging civil war in Syria, Russia’s role in the region, Iran’s influence and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.Israeli settlement activities in the West Bank, said Abdullah II, create “animosity and difficulty” and “give ammunition to the Iranians, to [Islamic State leader Abu Bakr] al-Baghdadi and ISIS,” an acronym for the Islamic State.Trump, with backing from Arab leaders, must push for a resolution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, he indicated.“Egypt and Jordan have a special relationship with Israel, and so if we don’t move forward, it puts more pressure on the Jordanians and the Egyptians,” he said, adding that he is “in contact” with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.“[The point of] my visit here — and the American administration agrees with me — is that we have got to put this all together. If there are settlements, how does this affect the peace process? I think the major challenge that we have is: Are we for a two-state solution? I don’t see any alternative but the two-state solution.”The Jordanian king said Iran’s growing influence in the region, in Iraq and Syria in particular, presented an opportunity to “bring[ing] Israel and the Arabs closer together.”“Because of the Iranian regime’s potential threat to the region, Israel wants to have a relationship with the Arabs. But the problem that is [standing] between the Arabs and the Israelis is the Palestinians. The whole point of our peace initiative is for us to be the guarantors of Israel’s security. If we can solve the Palestinian problem, then this is a new era of stability in our area, where Israelis are truly a part of the neighborhood,” he said.Trump, indicated Abdullah II, “wants to engage and make a deal for Israelis and Palestinians. I was really struck by the commitment he had in bringing the Israelis and Palestinians together.”The meeting between the US president and the Jordanian king came less than a day before Trump ordered US strikes on an airbase in Syria in response to a suspected chemical attack by Syrian military forces on civilians in rebel-held territory that killed over 80 people, including dozens of children.At their joint press conference, Trump said the use of chemical agents was intolerable but stopped short of indicating that a US response was coming.The strike infuriated Russia, a staunch ally of the Assad regime, and Iran, which is heavily invested in the war.In his interview, Abdullah II said the international community had a “moral obligation to fight this horrendous tragedy that is befalling civilians in Syria,” but that the US and other nations should engage with Russia to help solve regional issues.“I’ll tell you why that works: From the Russian point of view, they play what I describe as a three-dimensional chess game. To them, Crimea is important, Syria is important, Ukraine, and we see them in Libya. The Americans and Europeans must deal with the Russians on all these issues simultaneously,” he said.
UK’s foremost libel lawyer sets his sights on Israel’s enemies-After bringing down News of the World for cellphone hacking, Mark Lewis is intent on combating anti-Semitism — even as he travels to Israel to fight his multiple sclerosis-By Jenni Frazer April 12, 2017, 9:08 am-THE TIMES OF ISRAEL
LONDON — You really wouldn’t want to be on the wrong side of media and libel lawyer Mark Lewis. For a good 20 minutes of our interview Lewis relives — in withering detail — tiny victories over alleged anti-Semites at his old school in south Manchester.His phenomenal memory in battles fought and won has propelled him to become one of the best-known libel specialists in Britain. Now he is bringing that steel-trap mind to bear on fighting battles for Israel — where he is the beneficiary of advanced medical treatment that may enable him to turn his life around.Lewis’s latest victory was won last month in a new battleground — social media. He represented a food blogger and left-wing activist, Jack Monroe (who despite the name, is female), against one of the UK’s most controversial tabloid columnists, Katie Hopkins. After a war memorial was daubed with red paint, Hopkins — in error — attacked Monroe on Twitter, alleging that she had supported the action.Unfortunately for Hopkins, Monroe comes from a military family and was furious at the allegation. She invited Hopkins to apologize — and when she did not, sued for libel, led by Mark Lewis. His tenacious work produced a stunning victory for Monroe, and an order by the court for Hopkins to pay her £24,000 — almost $30,000 — plus nearly three times that in court costs.These days Lewis, 52, is a partner in the prestigious central London Seddons law firm and is renowned as the leading figure in breaking the phone-hacking scandal which led to the closure of one of Rupert Murdoch’s most cherished newspapers — the hugely circulated News of the World.But Lewis’s early life gave no clues to his present high-profile image.Instead, he speaks of “being the freak in the family, because I was the clever one,” born and brought up in the northern city of Manchester to a secretary mother and a father, who by Lewis’s own account, drifted between periods of unemployment, working as a carpenter or in a candy store.“He was never particularly successful at anything, he just meandered about,” says Lewis.But Lewis himself was clever, and won a scholarship to one of Manchester’s best schools, William Hulme, which he hated from day one. His school career — according to Lewis — was a litany of run-ins with despised teachers. He refused to play according to school rules and attracted endless attacks as a result.At William Hulme, he says, “I was quite outspoken, ran Jewish assemblies, was very big in BBYO (B’nai B’rith Youth Organization) where I was regional president for a time, and always took my Jewish identity and support for Israel very seriously.”Painstakingly Lewis reaches back to his schooldays, reliving slights by teachers, including one who addressed him as “Jewish, I mean Lewis.” He later stood up to him when the teacher threatened to report him to the local education authority, which paid Lewis’s school fees.‘I liked old cars and I wasn’t very mechanical, so I thought, well, I like arguing and lawyers make a lot of money, so I can buy cars’“It’s nothing personal,” the 18-year-old student told his teacher. “Actually, it is personal. I just don’t like you.”The teacher backed down and Lewis was transferred to the supervision of another staff member.He always knew, he says, that he wanted to be a lawyer, for an odd reason.“I liked old cars and I wasn’t very mechanical, so I thought, well, I like arguing and lawyers make a lot of money, so I can buy cars. It wasn’t that I wanted to save the world,” Lewis says.He went to London to study and worked his way through college by becoming a waiter at Sammy’s, one of the capital’s first kosher restaurants in the influx of Israeli-run eateries of the late 1980s.‘I panicked. At 23 or 24 you don’t expect to be unwell’Not long after he began working as a lawyer in London, Lewis experienced his first episode of MS, or multiple sclerosis, the debilitating disease of the central nervous system in which the coating around nerve fibers become damaged.“I panicked,” he admits. “At 23 or 24 you don’t expect to be unwell.”The neurological condition, for which there is currently no cure, has affected Lewis more as the years have gone by. He walks with a pronounced limp and has limited use of his right hand.But characteristically, Lewis has refused to let MS define him. After he was diagnosed he went back to Manchester to work and followed a relatively traditional path for a young Jewish lawyer — he married, had four daughters, “and I had a nice house, and all the old cars that I wanted. In 2006 I co-drove a 1926 Rolls Royce for the JNF’s London to Jerusalem rally. It was the best old car holiday I ever had.”He was working in Manchester as a commercial litigator “with the odd bit of defamation thrown in.” But gradually, the defamation and libel side of Lewis’s practice grew until it formed around 40% of his work.Lewis’s law firm had always represented the Professional Footballers’ Association (PFA) and in 2005 he took on the case of the PFA’s chief executive, who was accused by the News of the World of having an affair with the PFA in-house lawyer.It wasn’t true, and Lewis prevailed on the newspaper not to publish any such story. But a year later he was watching TV and saw a story about the so-called rogue News of the World reporter, Clive Goodman, and private investigator Glenn Mulcaire, who pleaded guilty to hacking the phones of the royal family.The report mentioned some other celebrities whose phones had been hacked, too. One of them was the PFA chief executive. It turned out that he had spoken at the funeral of the father of the in-house lawyer — and that she had left a message on his phone to thank him. In hacking his phone, the reporter, according to Lewis, “put two and two together and made 84” — in other words, assumed that the CEO and the in-house lawyer were having an affair.It was the beginning of a massive uncovering of phone-hacking in Britain and the opening of an inquiry into press behavior, the Leveson Inquiry, whose recommendations are still being hotly contested.The revelation of the PFA case led to a huge upswing in similar claims by people all over the country whose phones had been hacked by tabloid journalists. Many of the cases, particularly after Lewis’s role was highlighted in a Guardian story in 2009, landed on Lewis’s desk.For reasons that are still unclear, his Manchester law firm gave him an ultimatum: stop accepting phone-hacking cases, or leave.So Lewis left, and moved, after a 21-year absence, to London. His marriage had broken down and he was at a low point as far as work went.And then he received a phone call from the Dowler family. Milly Dowler was a 13-year-old schoolgirl who had gone missing in March 2002. Her body was eventually discovered in September of that year.In the intervening agonizing months until their daughter’s remains were discovered, the Dowler family thought that she might still be alive because Milly’s phone was still accepting voicemail messages. It transpired, however, that Milly’s phone was one of an estimated 6,000 in Britain to have been hacked by the News of the World — and in Milly’s case, the paper had deleted some messages on her phone, destroying potentially crucial evidence.Mark Lewis took on the Dowler case against the News of the World on a no-win, no-fee basis, and won. It was described as a “nuclear” moment and it led to the closure of the paper and a number of arrests.“All of a sudden — I began to get clients from all over the place, from all over the world,” says Lewis.He became the go-to lawyer for celebrity cases of libel, and a familiar “talking head” on TV and radio.The Jack Monroe-Katie Hopkins case is certainly a legacy from the phone-hacking cases. It’s become known as a “Twibel,” or “Twitter libel” case and Lewis, though obviously pleased with the outcome and the damages awarded to his client, has bigger fish to fry — namely how to apply the result to helping Israel online.It seems that #kenlivingstone has confused "Socialist" with "National Socialist". Then again maybe he wasn't confused— Mark Lewis (@MLewisLawyer) April 5, 2017-“I do like to take people on,” admits Lewis, who himself can be found Tweeting to his 43,500 followers at all hours of the day, often indulging in hours-long back-and-forths with anti-Semitic trolls. “I don’t like to block people, because I believe in a free press, and I also don’t want to give them the satisfaction of putting ‘blocked by Mark Lewis’ on their timeline, as though they had intimidated me.”“There’s a Jewish choice in life,” he continues. “You can either be the Jew that people want to pick on — or they can say, oh, typical Jews, so belligerent. I always think, well, if people don’t like me, at least I’ve hit them.”Lewis takes a ruthless approach, believing that it’s necessary to be aggressive against anti-Semites on social media.“Someone can be a Nazi, but at least [if they are taken to court] they can be a homeless Nazi,” he says. “I’m quite happy to take their homes off them. If these people would have rational debate, I would do that [instead], but they are nutters who have conspiratorial theories and I will never change their outlook.”‘I always think, well, if people don’t like me, at least I’ve hit them’A couple of years ago Lewis became a director of UK Lawyers for Israel (UKLFI).“None of us charge for our time but we devote it to putting legal arguments forward for Israel,” he says.Many nights he stays up to midnight, giving legal advice on behalf of UKLFI.With some wryness, he says, “Had UKLFI existed when I was at school and the teacher called me ‘Jewish’ rather than ‘Lewis,’ they could probably have sorted that out.”Lewis never hides his beliefs, making it plain, where necessary, of his love of Israel if that might lead to a conflict of interest. So far, such plain dealing has not cost him any clients. What has, ironically, is his own reputation — “people think either I must be too busy or too expensive. So it’s actually not as easy to get clients as it might be.”When diagnosed with MS, says Lewis, it’s common for the consultant to ask the patient, “are you still working?” And if the answer is yes, sufferers are usually advised, “don’t do anything too stressful.” Lewis applies neither of these strictures — in fact the opposite. His rather too-public image and the continuing stress of his celebrity libel cases do have an effect on the progress of his condition, however much he wishes otherwise.‘I like to think that technology has caught up with everything’“I like to think that technology has caught up with everything,” he says. “For example, I can’t write with my right hand any more. But you don’t sign checks any more, or credit card slips; you don’t write letters any more, you tap out emails… I’m quite adept on a keyboard with my left hand.”Last summer Lewis heard about stem cell research taking place at Jerusalem’s Hadassah Hospital along with clinical trials for a number of neurological diseases, including MS, ALS (or Lou Gehrig’s disease) and Parkinson’s.He successfully applied to be part of the Hadassah clinical trial and now, with his Israeli-British partner Mandy Blumenthal, travels to Jerusalem every six weeks for treatment. The process is being filmed every step of the way for a British Channel 4 documentary to be screened in the autumn.Lewis won’t talk about the details of the clinical trial, which could last for 18 months before the results are assessed. But it is believed to be groundbreaking and revolutionary science taking place at Hadassah.If perseverance is the key, if anyone can make it, Lewis can. He is, he says, a firm believer that there is a cure for everything “if you hang on long enough.”
Chicago men charged with trying to join Islamic State after FBI sting-Part time chef and cancer treatment center worker seen posing with IS flag, arrested by undercover agents on way to join terror group in Syria-By Agencies April 13, 2017, 5:27 am-THE TIMES OF ISRAEL
CHICAGO — Two suburban Chicago men who posed for photos holding a black Islamic State group flag at a Lake Michigan beach park were arrested Wednesday on federal terrorist charges, and an undercover operative said one of the men suggested homosexuals should be thrown off the city’s tallest building.An FBI sting begun in 2015 compiled evidence that Joseph D. Jones and Edward Schimenti sought to provide material support to Islamic State, including by provided cellphones to one person working for the FBI and posing as an IS supporter believing the phones would be used to detonate car bombs in Syria, the 65-page complaint says.Jones, a part-time chef who also has been attending college, and Schimenti, who worked at a cancer treatment center, drove the FBI operative to Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport last week on what they thought would be the first leg of a journey to Syria. The complaint says Schimenti told him to “drench that land … with blood.”The 35-year-old men looked tired standing in street clothes with their hands folded behind their backs during a brief initial hearing Wednesday in federal court in Chicago. When Magistrate Judge David Weisman asked if they understood the charges, both answered calmly that they did.Schimenti’s mother, Joni Schimenti, attended the hearing and told reporters outside court: “Eddie is no terrorist.”If convicted, the two men would face a maximum prison term of 20 years. A detention hearing was set for Monday, after which they would enter pleas.The complaint includes photos of them holding the IS flag at the Illinois Beach State Park in Zion, where they live. It also has postings on their social media accounts.While he helped the man he believed would go to Syria get into condition at a local gym, Schimenti conceded he wasn’t close to fighting shape, the complaint says. “I’m all big, fat,” he is quoted as saying. “But (God willing), the brothers will just have me be the one to cut the neck.”Schimenti, who also went by “Abdul Wali,” allegedly told one person in on the sting in February that he was angry about a co-worker because the person was gay. Under Islamic Law, Schimenti was quoted as saying, “We are putting you (homosexuals) on top of Sears Tower (now the Willis Tower) and we drop you.”A photo posted on Schimenti’s Google Plus profile shows a masked man holding a knife, and caption written in capital letters says that if you can’t travel abroad to fight, “then slaughter the pagans next to you.” After watching an IS video of captured soldiers being burned alive as they spoke a language he didn’t understand, Schimenti says, “I don’t know what they’re saying but I love it,” the complaint says.A video was posted on Jones’ Google Plus profile entitled, “Some of the Deadly Stabbing Ways: Do not Forget to Poison the Knife,” the complaint says. Another time, a person in on the FBI sting asked Jones if he ever thought about traveling to Syria to live in Islamic State territory. Jones, who was also known as “Yusuf Abdulhaqq,” allegedly answered: “Every night and day.”This is the latest of several area cases related to Islamic State. A Chicago federal judge last year sentenced former Illinois National Guard Hasan Edmonds to 30 years in prison and his cousin, Jonas Edmonds, to 21 years for plotting to join Islamic State fighters and to attack a National Guard armory just outside Chicago.The complaint makes a brief reference to Schimenti allegedly suggesting in March that the Naval Station Great Lakes, a training ground for US sailors just south of Zion, could be a terrorist target.The sting started in September 2015 when an undercover agent approached Jones at the Zion Police Department — where Jones was being questioned about the killing of one of his friends — and the two began talking about Islam. The complaint didn’t offer details about the killing.Schimenti grew increasingly suspicious about the undercover agents, suggesting that at least some weren’t actually Islamic State sympathizers. He once suggested something was “fishy” about them, adding that he had a good sense of such things because of his own criminal history. Jones also spoke about past convictions.
In surprise move, Iran’s Ahmadinejad registers to run for president-Defying Khamenei, hardliner ex-president to challenge incumbent Rouhani in May elections-By Agencies April 12, 2017, 10:59 am-THE TIMES OF ISRAEL
Iran’s former President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has filed to run in the country’s May presidential election, contradicting a recommendation from the nation’s supreme leader that he stay out of the race.Associated Press journalists watched as stunned election officials processed Ahmadinejad’s paperwork on Wednesday.Ahmadinejad previously said he wasn’t going to run after Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei advised him not to, saying he would instead support his former deputy Hamid Baghaei who also registered on Wednesday.At a press conference Wednesday, Ahmadinejad called Khamenei’s comments “just advice,” and described his registering for the election as helping Baghaei, a close confidant.Many hard-liners in Iran seek a tough-talking candidate to rally around who can stand up to US President Donald Trump. But Ahmadinejad’s candidacy could expose the fissures inside Iranian politics that linger since his contested 2009 re-election, which brought massive unrest.Iran’s moderate President Hassan Rouhani, who negotiated the nuclear deal with world powers, is expected to run for re-election.Ahmadinejad previously served two four-year terms from 2005 to 2013. Under Iranian law, he became eligible to run again after four years out of office, but he remains a polarizing figure, even among fellow hard-liners.Ahmadinejad was reviled in Israel and the West for repeatedly questioning the scale of the Holocaust, calling for the destruction of the Jewish state and expanding Iran’s contested nuclear program.Two of his former vice presidents have been jailed for corruption since he left office. Iran’s economy suffered under heavy international sanctions during his administration because of Western suspicions that Tehran was secretly pursuing nuclear weapons. Iran insists its nuclear program is for peaceful purposes.Ahmadinejad’s disputed re-election in 2009 sparked massive protests and a sweeping crackdown in which thousands of people were detained, dozens killed and others tortured.The memory of the 2009 unrest likely sparked Khamenei’s comments in September. At that time, he recommended an unnamed candidate not seek office as it would bring about a “polarized situation” that would be “harmful for the county.”
Junior Jihad-Hamas designs terror-inspired ‘Snakes and Ladders’-In ‘Reaching Jerusalem,’ players are helped by rockets and attack tunnels, while having to avoid IDF tanks and helicopters-By Times of Israel staff April 11, 2017, 9:38 am
A terrorism-inspired children’s board game based on “Snakes and Ladders” (also known as Chutes and Ladders) that glorifies the Hamas terror group is soon set to hit stores in the Gaza Strip.According to the Middle East Media Research Institute, “Reaching Jerusalem” was designed by Muhammad Ramadan Al-Amriti, an employee of the Hamas Interior Ministry who has previously produced and directed videos praising Hamas and terror attacks against Israel.In a post on his Facebook page, Al-Amriti said the purpose of the game is to teach Palestinian children the proper tenets of Islam and “that return to the homeland will be achieved only through resistance and jihad.”In the game, players attempt to reach Jerusalem, which on the board is illustrated by the Al-Aqsa Mosque and the Dome of the Rock, with their advances helped via “ladders” in the form of Hamas made rockets and underground attack tunnels, the two primary means by which the terror group focuses its efforts on to attack Israel.Like in the classic game, players must avoid landing on the “snakes” in order not to be set back, which in “Reaching Jerusalem” take the form of IDF tanks and helicopters.The design of the board is also replete with pictures of Hamas fighters. It also shows the Israeli cities of Tiberias, Ashdod, Acre, Haifa, Jaffa, Ramle and Safed, which had significant Arab populations prior to the establishment of the State of Israel and are all located in the pre-1967 borders. Hamas avowedly seeks to destroy Israel, and maintains that these cities will one day be Palestinian-ruled.“The game ‘Reaching Jerusalem’ is an important component in the correct upbringing [of our children] in the near future… We created this game so that children do not forget their cities of origin and in order to establish [these cities] in their consciousness, and also in order to strengthen the children’s military culture and love of jihad,” MEMRI quoted al-Amriti as saying.According to MEMRI, al-Amriti said that 10,000 copies of the game will be produced, and will soon be available in stores.

North Korea said to ready nuclear test as tensions climb-Monitor says activity at site indicates fresh test may be in offing; VOA reports Pyongyang has placed nuke in tunnel ahead of Saturday detonation-By AFP April 13, 2017, 4:47 am-THE TIMES OF ISRAEL
WASHINGTON — North Korea is ready to launch a nuclear test at its Punggye-ri Nuclear Test Site, the 38 North monitoring group reported on Wednesday.The 38 North analysis group described the test site as “primed and ready.”“Commercial satellite imagery of North Korea’s Punggye-ri Nuclear Test Site from April 12 shows continued activity around the North Portal, new activity in the Main Administrative Area, and a few personnel around the site’s Command Center,” the North Korea-related analysis website said.A barrage of recent North Korean missile tests has stoked US fears that Pyongyang may soon develop an intercontinental ballistic missile capable of delivering a nuclear warhead to the US mainland.There is speculation that the country could be preparing a missile launch, or even another nuclear test — this would be its sixth — to mark the 105th birthday anniversary of its founder Kim Il-Sung on Saturday.The Voice of America said Wednesday night, quoting US government and other sources, that North Korea “has apparently placed a nuclear device in a tunnel and it could be detonated Saturday AM Korea time.”Reuters reported that North Korea told foreign journalists Thursday to prepare for a “big and important event,” though it was not clear if the announcement was tied to the reported nuclear test or regional tensions.President Donald Trump’s administration has been forceful in its warnings to Pyongyang that leave military options “on the table,” as Secretary of State Rex Tillerson has said.The threat carries extra weight after the US strike on a Syrian air base last week.“We are sending an armada. Very powerful,” Trump said Wednesday. “We have submarines. Very powerful. Far more powerful than the aircraft carrier.”He was referring to a strike group headed by the USS Carl Vinson supercarrier that has been re-routed to the Korean peninsula in a show of force against Kim.The strike group, which deployed with about 6,500 sailors, is still some way south, conducting exercises with the Australian navy.The US Navy already has a massive regional presence, including another carrier strike group headquartered at Yokosuka in Japan.
