TRUMP MEETS WITH ARAB LOSER ABBAS AND YAD VASHEM IN DAY 2 OF ISRAEL TRIP.
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.

Trump seeks ‘common sets of principles’ to build momentum for peace, official says-Speaking aboard Air Force One, senior administration official indicates US wants to build stronger ties in region between Israel, Arab world as first step-By Times of Israel staff May 24, 2017, 5:07 am
The US is working on building strong relationships in the Middle East between Israel and its Arab neighbors that will create momentum for a peace deal between Israelis and Palestinians, a senior White House official said late Tuesday. The official was speaking after US President Donald Trump wrapped up a visit to the region, first in Saudi Arabia then in Israel and the Palestinian Authority.The official said that “the first step [toward peace]… is to bring relationships that are warm and strong privately and bring them more public and also set forth a common set of principles that everyone wants to abide by.”The official, who gave a press briefing aboard Air Force One en route from Israel to Italy, did not provide details on what these common principles may be, but said efforts should be “quiet and discreet.”“Hopefully the more we can build trust the more we can have open dialogues around these things in a way that has not happened before, I think that gives us a better chance of having success in this issue.”The official hailed the “very successful” and “historic” trip to Saudi Arabia and Israel, saying Trump “united the entire Muslim world in a way that it really hasn’t been in many years.”“The overall objective that we want to accomplish here is really try to find a peaceful way to create a new direction for the Middle East,” said the official, and “build very strong relationships with all the different people, not just the parties involves, but all the people in the neighborhood. And also try to create a lot of momentum and optimism around the prospect for peace.”The trip was also “essential towards trying to reestablish America’s credibility in the region,” the Trump official said.Trump has repeatedly said he was looking to broker the “ultimate deal” with Israelis and Palestinians and is convinced he could do so. Trump has tasked his son-in-law Jared Kushner, and former real estate lawyer Jason Greenblatt with charting a course forward. Still, White House officials had downplayed the prospects for a breakthrough on this trip, saying it was important to manage their ambitions as they wade into terrain that has tripped up more experienced diplomats.In a speech Tuesday at the Israel Museum, the president heaped praise on Israel, while calling on both sides to make compromises toward peace. He urged them to put aside the “pain and disagreements of the past” and declared that both sides were ready to move forward.The president notably avoided all of the thorny issues that have stymied peace efforts for decades. He did not mention Israeli settlements, the status of Jerusalem or even whether the US would continue to insist on a two-state solution giving the Palestinians sovereign territory.In a meeting with opposition leader Isaac Herzog on Tuesday, Kushner said Washington intended to move fast to advance a renewal of peace talks between Israel and the Palestinians, a spokesman for Herzog said, with Trump’s envoy Jason Greenblatt reportedly set to return next week so as not to leave a “diplomatic vacuum.”Herzog met with Trump, Kushner and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu for several minutes, after the US president’s speech at the Israel Museum in Jerusalem and just before Trump departed the country.Kushner, who along with international negotiations envoy Greenblatt has been tasked by Trump with relaunching the peace process, reportedly told Herzog: “We are planning to move fast in starting a diplomatic process in order to reach a deal.”Greenblatt accompanied Trump during his two-day visit in Israel and had held a series of meetings with Israeli and Palestinian officials ahead of Trump’s arrival.Trump, meanwhile, told Herzog, the Zionist Union leader: ““I am serious about a deal and I am determined.”Herzog told Trump that Netanyahu would receive the support of the opposition in advancing the peace process.
In Holocaust memorial guestbook, Trump writes, 'It is a great honor to be here with all of my friends -- so amazing + will Never Forget!'-At Yad Vashem, Trump says Holocaust ‘the most savage crime against God’In follow-up remarks, Netanyahu invokes recent attacks, says ‘In Manchester, San Bernardino or Jerusalem: Terror is terror is terror’By Times of Israel staff May 23, 2017, 2:26 pm
US President Donald Trump paid his respects to the victims of the Holocaust at Israel’s Yad Vashem national memorial during a short visit on Tuesday.Speaking at the site’s Hall of Remembrance, Trump said, “We are here at Yad Vashem to honor the memory of six million Jews who were sent to their deaths. Words can never describe the bottomless depth of that evil.”He referred to the genocide as history’s darkest hour, and said “millions of beautiful lives” were taken.The Holocaust, Trump said, was “the most savage crime against God and His children and it is our solemn duty to mourn every life that was so viciously taken.”Accompanied by his wife, Melania, and daughter and son-in-law Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner, the president laid a wreath, carried by two US Marines in formal dress, in honor of the dead.Trump also lit a remembrance flame and listened to a cantor sing the El Maleh Rahamim (“God Full of Mercy”) prayer, a traditional dirge for the dead.A children’s choir sang the ballad “My God, my God,” written by the young World War II parachutist Hannah Szenes not long before she died attempting to infiltrate Nazi-occupied Europe.In his remarks, Trump praised the Jewish people for persevering after the tragedy: “They have thrived. They have become so successful in so many places. The State of Israel is a strong, a soaring monument to the solemn pledge we repeat and affirm: Never again.”And he added: “As long as we refuse to become bystanders to the barbaric then we know peace and justice will ultimately prevail.”Speaking immediately after Trump, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said the Holocaust offered the lesson that “Israel must always be able to defend itself.”“We remember the hatred toward Jews that consumed a defenseless people. We pledge never to be defenseless against that hatred again.”He then thanked Trump for his commitment to Israel’s security.Turning to the deadly terror attack in Manchester overnight, Netanyahu said, “I want to say something about the bloody horror in Manchester last night. The slaughter of innocents must be unconditionally condemned and unflinchingly confronted no matter where it occurs – in Manchester, San Bernardino or Jerusalem: Terror is terror is terror. We must all unite to defeat it.”Netanyahu then referred to Trump’s speech in Bethlehem earlier Tuesday in which he called the terrorists from Manchester “losers.”“I know you agree with me,” he told Trump, “that it is our job to make sure they continue to lose. We will defeat them.”During his stop at Yad Vashem, Trump was presented with a replica of a personal album that belonged to German Jewish girl, Ester Goldstein, who was murdered by the Nazis.In the guestbook, Trump wrote, “It is a great honor to be here with all of my friends — so amazing + will Never Forget!”Trump has received a crash course in the Holocaust since entering politics two years ago. During the campaign, many Jewish groups were critical of his campaign messages — like “America first” and conspiratorial talk of “global special interests” that seemed to echo historical anti-Semitic themes. As president, his White House issued a statement on International Holocaust Remembrance Day that failed to mention the Jews, and Sean Spicer, his press secretary, said that Adolf Hilter had not used chemical weapons during World War II.Spicer quickly apologized for the comment, which he made in an effort to emphasize the barbarism of Syrian President Bashar Assad, but Trump never directly addressed criticism of his actions, much of which came from Jewish groups.The president seems to have learned his lesson. During the annual Days of Remembrance, he spoke specifically of the Holocaust’s toll on Jews, who were the singular targets of the genocide. But he caused another controversy in Israel when it was reported that he was looking to cut his already short visit to Yad Vashem to 30 minutes.The visit is near obligatory for foreign dignitaries. Barack Obama spent an hour at the memorial center as president, and George Bush took even longer.After the brief visit, which lasted roughly half an hour, Trump and his entourage left the memorial for the nearby Israel Museum, where Trump is slated to deliver his main address to Israelis.JTA contributed to this report.
Full text of President Trump’s remarks in meeting with Abbas-‘President Abbas assures me he is ready to work toward this goal [of peace] in good faith. And Prime Minister Netanyahu has promised the same,’ says US president in Bethlehem-By Times of Israel staff May 23, 2017, 1:02 pm
Remarks by US President Donald Trump, at meeting in Bethlehem with Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas, May 23, 2017.As President of the United States, on behalf of the people of the United States, I would like to begin by offering my prayers to the people of Manchester in The United Kingdom. I extend my deepest condolences to those so terribly injured in this terrorist attack, and to the many killed and the families of the victims. We stand in absolute solidarity with the people of the United Kingdom.So many young, beautiful innocent people, living and enjoying their lives, murdered by evil losers in life. I won’t call them monsters because they would like that term. I will call them losers from now on, because that is what they are: losers.This is what I’ve spent these last few days talking about during my trip oversees. Our society can have no tolerance for this continuation of bloodshed, we cannot stand a moment longer for the slaughter of innocent citizens.The terrorists and extremists, and those who give them aid and comfort, must be driven out from our society forever. This wicked ideology must be obliterated, and innocent life must be protected. All civilized nations must join together to protect human life and the sacred right of our citizens to live in safety and peace.I want to offer my deep appreciation to the Palestinians and President Abbas for hosting me today. It is an honor to join you in Bethlehem — a city that is precious to people around the world.As I discussed with President Abbas in Washington earlier this month, I am committed to trying to achieve a peace agreement between the Israelis and Palestinians, and I intend to do everything I can to help them achieve that goal.President Abbas assures me he is ready to work toward this goal in good faith. And Prime Minister Netanyahu has promised the same.I look forward to working with these leaders toward lasting peace.I also look forward to working with President Abbas on other important matters, such as unlocking the potential of the Palestinian economy and building on our very positive counter-terrorism efforts.Several days ago in Saudi Arabia, I met with the leaders of Muslim and Arab nations across the region. I called on them to join in a partnership to drive terrorism from their midst once and for all. It was a deeply productive meeting, and many leaders agreed to cooperate with us on this vital goal.I was gratified that President Abbas joined the summit and committed to taking firm but necessary steps to fight terrorism and confront its hateful ideology.Peace can never take root in an environment where violence is tolerated, funded or rewarded. We must be resolute in condemning such acts in a single, unified voice.Peace is a choice we must make each day, and the United States is here to help make that dream possible for young Jewish, Christian and Muslim children across the region. In so doing, we will all enjoy a safer and brighter future.In this spirit of hope, we come to Bethlehem, asking God for a more peaceful, safe and more tolerant world for all.I am truly hopeful that America can help Israelis and Palestinians forge peace, and bring new hope to the region and its people.
Trump to Abbas: Peace won’t come where violence ‘rewarded’-In Bethlehem, US president seems to criticize PA’s salaries for terrorists; says Palestinian leader and Netanyahu assure him they are ‘ready to work toward peace in good faith’-By Times of Israel staff May 23, 2017, 12:21 pm
In his first visit to the Palestinian Authority, US President Donald Trump issued implicit criticism of Palestinian funding for imprisoned terrorists, while praising the counterterrorism efforts of the PA and urging condemnation of terror attacks “in a single unified voice.”Trump spoke alongside PA President Mahmoud Abbas at the latter’s presidential compound in Bethlehem Tuesday. The two men began their respective statements with condemnations of the apparent suicide bombing in Manchester the night before.“Peace can never take root in an environment where violence is tolerated, funded and even rewarded,” Trump said, in an apparent reference to the salaries paid by the PA to jailed Palestinian terrorists and to the families of Palestinian prisoners killed while committing terror attacks. “We must be resolute in condemning such acts in a single unified voice,” he said.Trump also promised American help to renew long-stalled Israeli-Palestinian peace talks.“Peace is a choice we must make each day, and the United States is here to help make that dream possible for young Jewish, Christian and Muslim children all across the region,” he said. “In so doing we will all enjoy a safer and brighter future and a safer and brighter world.”He added that such a peace would trigger a cascade effect throughout the region: “I am truly hopeful that America can help Israel and the Palestinians forge peace and bring new hope to the region and its people. I also firmly believe that if Israel and the Palestinians can make peace, it can begin a process of peace all throughout the Middle East and that will be an amazing accomplishment.”Trump’s comments reiterated his statements Monday to Israel’s President Reuven Rivlin and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu that many Arab states seek “a much deeper path to friendship with Israel” that can only move forward when peace with the Palestinians is achieved.While implicitly criticizing the Palestinian Authority’s stance on terrorism, he praised Abbas, who he said had “committed to taking firm but necessary steps to fight terrorism and confront its hateful ideology.“I am committed to trying to achieve a peace agreement between the Israelis and the Palestinians, and I intend to do everything I can to help them achieve that goal,” Trump said. “President Abbas assures me he is ready to work toward that goal in good faith, and Prime Minister Netanyahu has promised the same. I look forward to working with these leaders toward a lasting peace.”Speaking before Trump, Abbas said that the Palestinians’ “fundamental problem is with occupation and settlements and the failure of Israel to recognize the state of Palestine as we recognize it,” and not with “Judaism.”“Once again we reassert to you our positions,” he continued: “accepting the two-state solution along the borders of 1967, a state of Palestine with a capital in East Jerusalem alongside Israel… and resolving longstanding issues based on international law and agreements… in accordance with Arab peace initiative.”Trump arrived at the presidential palace in Bethlehem in the morning after traveling there by car from Jerusalem.He and Abbas embraced on the red carpet at the entrance to the compound, then reviewed an honor guard of Palestinian security forces who had been trained by the United States in an ongoing effort at bolstering Palestinian governance and institutions.Trump then shook hands with a short receiving line of religious leaders and other dignitaries.During Trump’s visit, the families of hunger-striking Palestinian prisoners protested at the nearby Manger Square, but were kept in check by Palestinian security forces. They waved photos of prisoners, including many convicted of terror attacks, who are protesting their conditions in Israeli prisons.The group of around 70 protesters, among them children, demanded Trump intervene with Israeli authorities on behalf of the Palestinian strikers.“Hear, hear Trump, the prisoners will not kneel,” they shouted.The PA’s Prisoner Affairs Minister Issa Qaraqe told The Times of Israel, “We want Trump to intervene on the Israeli side so the demands of the prisoners can be met.”Abbas also raised the issue in his comments alongside Trump. “I’d like to draw attention to our Palestinian hunger-strikers,” he said. “Meters from here and everywhere around Palestine, mothers suffer from being denied visits to their children. Their demands are humane and just. I demand from the Israeli government to meet these humane, legitimate demands.”Earlier Tuesday, a senior Palestinian official said he expected Trump’s visit to result in renewed peace negotiations.Abbas adviser Majdi Khaldi told the Voice of Palestine radio that in the short term, renewed negotiations must address the Palestinians’ economic problems that are linked to continued conflict and Israeli restrictions on trade and movement. He added that “this visit will open the way for relaunching the peace process.”Dov Lieber and AP contributed to this report.
Full text of Prime Minister Netanyahu’s remarks at Yad Vashem-‘We pledge never to be defenseless again,’ Israeli PM tells Trump at Holocaust memorial-By Times of Israel staff May 23, 2017, 2:32 pm
Remarks by Prime Minster Benjamin Netanyahu at Yad Vashem Holocaust Memorial with US President Donald Trump May 23, 2017.What an incredibly moving speech that in so few words said so much. Thank you, Mr. President. This adds to a historic visit. You are the first American president who chose to include Israel on his first foreign trip. You’re the first president in office to visit the Western Wall. We were so deeply moved to see that picture of you touching the stones of the wall. And may I say, we were deeply moved to see First Lady Melania Trump touching the stones of that wall. And equally moved when we saw your daughter, Ivanka, and your son-in-law Jared do the same. Now you touch other stones.You honor today the memory of six million Jews who were murdered in the Holocaust. A few weeks ago, you gave a powerful speech in the Holocaust Memorial Day in Washington, DC, and today in this solemn place, in Yad Vashem, our great monument of remembrance, we remember the Holocaust. We remember the hatred towards Jews that consumed a defenseless people. We pledge never to be defenseless against that hatred again. And to fulfill that pledge, Israel must always be able to defend itself by itself against any threat.I appreciate America’s longstanding commitment to that principle, and Mr. President, I appreciate your commitment to that principle, your commitment to the security of the one and only Jewish state, which is entrusted with securing the Jewish future. You said, Mr. President, just now, that we must confront evil in the world, we must confront the barbarians. They are sadly still with us.I want to say something about the bloody horror in Manchester last night. The slaughter of innocents must be unconditionally condemned and unflinchingly confronted no matter where it occurs – in Manchester, San Bernardino or Jerusalem: Terror is terror is terror. We must all unite to defeat it.Mr. President, today you called the terrorists losers. I know you agree with me that it’s our job to make sure that they continue to lose.We will defeat them.Thank you. Thank you to First Lady Melania Trump. Thank you for taking such a strong stand for Israel and the Jewish people. It comes from the heart of all of us. Thank you, Mr. President.
In Bethlehem, Trump seems to reject Netanyahu’s outside-in approach-US president stops short of endorsing Palestinian statehood, but stresses that if Israelis, Palestinians can make peace, ‘it will begin’ a process leading to regional peace — not the other way around-By Raphael Ahren May 23, 2017, 12:56 pm
US President Donald Trump on Tuesday appeared to reject Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s vision of a wider Arab-Israeli detente that will eventually lead to a peace agreement with the Palestinians, instead stating that the sequence of peacemaking would have to be the other way around.Speaking alongside Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas in Bethlehem, the president reaffirmed his commitment to brokering an Israeli-Palestinian peace deal, and lauded both leaders for their declared willingness to go along with his plan.But then Trump set out a formula from which Netanyahu is unlikely to derive much pleasure.“I am truly hopeful that America can help Israel and the Palestinians forge peace and bring new hope to the region and its people,” Trump said, reading from prepared remarks. “I also firmly believe that if Israel and the Palestinians can make peace, it will begin a process of peace all throughout the Middle East.”For years, Netanyahu has argued that bilateral talks between Ramallah and Jerusalem are unlikely to yield a final-status peace deal. Instead, he insists, the Sunni Arab world, which sees in Israel a vital ally against their common foe Iran, will eventually convince the Palestinians to make the concessions necessary for a peace agreement.The prime minister spoke about his so-called inside-out approach Monday night at a meeting with Trump in Jerusalem.“I also look forward to working closely with you to advance peace in our region, because you have noted so succinctly that common dangers are turning former enemies into partners. And that’s where we see something new and potentially something very promising.” Netanyahu said. “The Arab leaders who you met yesterday could help change the atmosphere and they could help create the conditions for a realistic peace,” he continued, referring to the Arab Islamic American Summit in Riyadh, which Trump attended.It is true that Trump believes in a grand bargain that would lead to peace between Israel and the larger Arab world, but he apparently differs with Netanyahu on the direction: inside-out versus outside-in.Netanyahu hopes that Trump can help formalize Israel’s clandestine cooperation with the Gulf states before a peace deal with the Palestinians is reached. But in Bethlehem on Tuesday, Trump indicated that he sees the direction reversed — or, rather, restored to the time-honored formula first laid down in the 2002 Saudi peace initiative: First, Israelis and Palestinians need to sign a peace treaty. Then, the entire Arab and Muslim world will normalize relations with Israel.Trump has yet to formally endorse the two-state solution. So far, he has not uttered the words “Palestinian state” in any of his appearances since he landed at Ben Gurion on Monday. He also subtly hinted on Tuesday at his disapproval of the Palestinians’ failure to effectively fight incitement to violence, including their payments to terrorists and terrorists’ families, when he said, “Peace can never take root in an environment where violence is tolerated, funded and even rewarded. We must be resolute in condemning such acts in a single unified voice.”Trump has also not said anything about the Arab Peace Initiative. But his repeated references to his meetings in Riyadh with King Salman — even in Israel and the Palestinian territories, he has been heaping more praise on the Saudi monarch than on his hosts — suggest that he was deeply impressed by the man.“King Salman of Saudi Arabia could not have been kinder, and I will tell you: He’s a very wise, wise man,” he said Tuesday in Bethlehem.Trump described Sunday’s summit in Riyadh as “a deeply productive meeting” in which he witnessed “a lot of love.”Likewise, on Monday, at a meeting with President Reuven Rivlin, Trump stressed that he was “deeply encouraged” by his conversations with Muslim leaders there. “King Salman feels very strongly, and I can tell you would love to see peace between Israel and the Palestinians.”But what Trump heard at the Riyadh summit, which was attended by Abbas, was a total, unanimous, unambiguous endorsement of the Arab Peace Initiative. It is highly unlikely that any of the leaders he met there gave him any indication that they’re subscribing to Netanyahu’s outside-in approach.That is not to say that Trump will try to force Israel to accept the terms of Arab Peace Initiative, some of which are unacceptable to the Israeli government. But on Tuesday he made plain that he believes Israeli-Palestinian peace “will begin a process of peace all throughout the Middle East,” and not, as Netanyahu asserts, culminate that process.
