SOUTH AFRICAN RULING PARTY WANTS TO DOWNGRADE EMBASSY IN ISRAEL.
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.

South African ruling party wants to downgrade embassy in Israel-ANC says it intends to demote mission to ‘interest office,’ a move Israel’s envoy in Pretoria says would hurt South Africa’s interests-By Raphael Ahren July 6, 2017, 5:06 pm-THE TIMES OF ISRAEL
South Africa’s ruling party this week announced its intention of downgrading its embassy in Israel to an “interest office.”At a major policy conference in Johannesburg, the African National Congress’s international relations committee decided on a number of recommendations to be adopted as official party policy later this year.“The commission called for the downgrading of the South African embassy in Israel to send a strong message about Israel’s continued illegal occupation of Palestine and the continued human rights abuses against the peoples of Palestine,” the commission’s chairperson announced Tuesday.Anti-Israel activists celebrated the move, while Israeli officials shrugged it off as a political policy recommendation that may never actually be implemented by the government.“This is a major victory for human rights and for the people of Palestine,” according to a statement issued Wednesday by a regional branch of the ANC.“Yesterday’s resolution is the strongest and clearest position taken by the ANC in our history as a governing party… We are under no illusion that Israel and its lobby will attempt to pressure the ANC but this mighty movement will remain steadfast in advancing the interests and solidarity of our people. We warn Israel not to interfere with our local politics, but instead to build a just peace with Palestinians,” it said.Yes!!! National Policy Conference of South Africa's governing ANC party moves for downgrade of SA embassy in Israel ✊️✊️✊️ pic.twitter.com/aotKK2YZXY— BDS South Africa (@BDSsouthafrica) July 5, 2017-Speaking to The Times of Israel on Thursday, Israel’s ambassador in Pretoria, Arthur Lenk, highlighted the negative side effects such a move would have for South Africa.“Any decision to downgrade the South African Embassy in Israel would only hurt South Africans and would have absolutely no impact on Israel or the Palestinians,” he said. “Such a decision would limit opportunities for the promotion of South African exports, something that is radically important for economic or socioeconomic transformation.”Pretoria’s ambassador in Ramat Gan could not be reached for comment.South African diplomats stationed in Israel often try to downplay anti-Israel moves by the ANC — such as welcoming senior Hamas leaders — by stressing that the party, which is headquartered in Johannesburg, is not the same as the government in Pretoria. However, it should be noted that the ANC commands an absolute majority in the country’s parliament.At the ANC’s National Policy Conference, which is held every five years, some 3,000 delegates from party branches all across the country routinely adopt hundreds of resolutions in various areas, including some on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. The recommendations made in this week’s summit are likely to be ratified at the ANC National Conference in mid-December, during which the party will select a new leader to replace its two-term president, Jacob Zuma.“On Palestine, the committee reaffirms the ANC’s unwavering and steadfast commitment for the struggle of the people of Palestine,” the chairperson of the international relations panel declared Tuesday. “The committee expresses its disappointment by the Israelis’ lack of commitment towards peace with the Palestinian people. The commission debates the continued illegal occupation of Palestine by Israel, which is at its fiftieth year, and Israel’s non compliance with the international law.”A “discussion document” published by the committee for this week’s conference calls for the rapid implementation of a two-state solution to solve the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. It goes on to predict that the “Palestinian crisis will be exacerbated” due to the US administration’s recent “pro-Israeli pronouncements.”Furthermore, the ANC’s international relations committee warned against Israeli efforts to “galvanise support from Africa and elsewhere with a view to undermine the Palestinian cause.”Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has visited Africa twice in the last 12 months and plans a third visit later this year. The ANC “shall engage progressive forces on the continent on the need to develop a common position and posture in preparation for the upcoming Israeli-Africa Summit scheduled for October 2017 in Togo,” the document stated.
Hamas praises UNESCO for panning Israel’s Jerusalem activity-Palestinian terror group calls for follow-up action to resolution, urges efforts to battle ‘Judaization’ of the Old City-By Stuart Winer July 6, 2017, 9:26 am-THE TIMES OF ISRAEL
The Hamas terror group on Wednesday praised a resolution by the United Nations’ cultural body condemning Israeli activity in East Jerusalem and the Old City, and urged the UN to prevent the “Judaization” of those areas.Tuesday’s Jordan-sponsored resolution in the United Nations Educational, Scientific, Cultural Organization’s World Heritage Council called Israel “the occupying power” in the Old City of Jerusalem and reaffirmed previous UN resolutions denying the country’s claims to East Jerusalem.Israel’s annexation of East Jerusalem has never been recognized by the international community.A Hamas spokesman, Abdel Latif al-Qanua, said in a statement that the UNESCO resolution demolishes the false Israeli narrative and asserts the Palestinian right in Jerusalem and the Al Aqsa Mosque, the organization’s website reported.Qanua urged that the resolutions be followed up with action on the ground to “save Jerusalem and Al-Aqsa Mosque from Judaization, excavations and Zionist projects.”The Hamas spokesperson also thanked all of the countries that supported the vote. Ten countries voted in favor of the text, which was significantly softer than previous resolutions. Only three member states — Jamaica, the Philippines and Burkina Faso — opposed the resolution, and eight abstained.Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas’s Fatah movement also welcomed the vote on Tuesday. Fatah spokesman in Europe Jamal Nazzal said it was “historic justice” and was “another reflection of the international position which opposes Israeli policy, and of our position which rejects recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of the occupation.”The resolution slammed “the failure of the Israeli occupying authorities to cease the persistent excavations, tunneling, works, projects and other illegal practices in East Jerusalem, particularly in and around the Old City of Jerusalem, which are illegal under international law.”However, Decision 41 COM 7A.36 also stressed “the importance of the Old City of Jerusalem and its Walls for the three monotheistic religions,” language not found in last year’s text and seen as a significant softening of the language.It also did not refer to the Temple Mount compound solely by its Muslim names, “Al-Aqsa Mosque/Al-Haram Al-Sharif,” as the 2016 resolution did, defining it as “a Muslim holy site of worship.”Despite the text lacking the bite of previous resolutions passed by the body, it was met with angry denunciations by Israeli officials.The Foreign Ministry responded by saying the decision cannot change the reality that Jerusalem is the capital of the Jewish people.“Another bizarre and irrelevant decision by UNESCO, that is acting on behalf of the enemies of history and the truth,” the ministry said in statement. “Jerusalem is the eternal capital of the Jewish people, and no decision by UNESCO can change that reality. It is sad, unnecessary and pathetic. It is worth noting that the decision didn’t even get a majority of votes.”Times of Israel staff contributed to this report.
Shas lawmaker hospitalized while on vacation in Prague-MK Yigal Guetta has been moved between hospitals; Israelis officials working to fly him home for treatment-By Times of Israel staff July 6, 2017, 5:31 pm
Shas MK Yigal Guetta was hospitalized in Prague on Monday after he felt ill while touring the Czech capital with his wife, the Israeli Foreign Ministry confirmed on Thursday.Diplomatic officials have met with Guetta, the ministry said, and are working on preparing to fly him to Israel for further medical treatment.Guetta’s condition was not disclosed, but was said to be serious enough to require being moved to a new hospital in Prague for appropriate treatment.“The situation is known and is being dealt with,” the Foreign Ministry’s brief Thursday morning statement said. “The [Israeli] consul is with him now, and the ambassador spoke with the [Israeli] health minister [Yaakov Litzman].”Guetta serves as Shas’s secretary-general and comes in at seventh place in its seven-member Knesset faction.
EU lawmakers advise freeze on talks to let Turkey in-Parliament cites human rights concerns but Istanbul rejects move; tennis star Dudi Sela stuns American with Wimbledon upset; Ivanka Trump, but not president, lays wreath at Warsaw Ghetto Uprising memorial after Jewish outcry-By Joshua Davidovich July 6, 2017, 2:10 pm-THE TIMES OF ISRAEL
18:23-EU lawmakers call to freeze talks on letting Turkey in-The European Parliament has advised the European Union to freeze accession talks with Turkey amid growing concerns over the country’s human rights and democracy. Turkey rejects Thursday’s move, calling it an attempt to “sabotage” relations with the EU.The legislature voted 477-64 with 97 abstentions to approve a non-binding report recommending the suspension of the negotiations in the wake Turkey’s referendum in April that approved constitutional amendments to give the president sweeping new powers.The parliament called on the EU’s 28 states to formally suspend the talks “without delay” if the constitutional reforms are implemented without change in Turkey.Turkish Prime Minister Binali Yildirim says what matters is the opinion of EU leaders and that there was no change in Turkey’s aim for EU membership.“The EU should determine its vision for its future and decide whether or not it will walk with Turkey,” he says.-15:53-Hungary Jews warn Orban over anti-Semitism in anti-Soros campaign-The Federation of Hungarian Jewish Communities is asking Prime Minister Viktor Orban to immediately end a political ad campaign targeting Hungarian-American investor and philanthropist George Soros.Federation president Andras Heisler says in a letter to Orban released Thursday that while the government’s campaign is not “openly anti-Semitic” it is “very capable” of arousing uncontrolled passions, including anti-Semitism.The government last week launched a billboard and television ad campaign seeking to discredit Soros’ pro-migration views. The posters and billboards show a smiling Soros with the caption “Let’s not allow Soros to have the last laugh!” and a notice claiming that 99 percent of Hungarians reject illegal migration.Some of the posters in Budapest and other large cities in Hungary were defaced with slogans like “stinking Jew” written across the Soros image.— AP-15:21-More Manchester bomb suspects may be on loose, UK police say-British police say the man who bombed an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester wasn’t part of a large network, but other people involved in the attack may still be at large.Russ Jackson, head of counterterrorism policing for northwest England, said Thursday that police may make more arrests in the investigation.Salman Abedi, a Briton of Libyan heritage, detonated a knapsack bomb as crowds were leaving Manchester Arena on May 22, killing 22 people and himself.In the days after the attack, police arrested 22 people on suspicion of terrorism offenses and said they had rounded up a large part of Abedi’s network. But all the suspects were subsequently released without charge.Jackson says detectives want to question Abedi’s younger brother, who has been detained in Libya.— AP-14:54-Trump says Europe needs to pay more for NATO-Trump talks up his insistence that European countries pony up their share for NATO, drawing weak applause.He says billions have poured in because of his drive to get the countries to open their wallets and that people are “shocked.”“Europe must do more … by investing its money,” he says, applauding Poland for buying the Patriot missile defense system.-14:47-Trump calls on Russia to end support for Iran, Syria-Trump also calls on Russia to end its “destabilizing activities in Ukraine and elsewhere, and its support for hostile regimes, including Syria and Iran.”He then launches into a tirade against paperwork and red tape.-14:46-Trump vows to ‘prevail’ against terror-Turning to concerns over terror, Trump says there are “dire threats to our security and to our way of life. You see what’s happening out there. They are threats. We are fighting and we will win, but they are threats.”“We must stand united against these shared enemies to strip them of their territory and their networks,” he says, adding that American borders will be closed to “terrorism and extremism of any kind.”“We are fighting hard against radical Islamic terrorism and we will prevail,” he adds.14:31-Trump lays wreath at Warsaw uprising memorial, begins speech-Donald Trump has laid a wreath at the Warsaw uprising memorial, alongside his wife Melania.A wreath-laying at the nearby memorial to the Warsaw Ghetto uprising is not on the official schedule, irking the local Jewish community, whose leaders said they “deeply regret’ the omission.Trump then begins delivering his speech, saying it is an honor to lay the wreath there.-14:12-Netanyahu, Modi play in surf and turf-Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has stopped on the way to Haifa with Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi to put their feet in the surf at Olga Beach.The two also take a spin in what looks like a dune buggy on the beach. Netanyahu describes the vehicle, which purifies water for drinking while driving along, as a “future Jeep,” and Modi praises it as “very important.”The vehicle can provide drinking water for 22,000 people, according to a press release from the Prime Minister’s Office.-14:11-Yachimovich back Gabbay in Labor leadership race-Former Labor Party leader Shelly Yachimovich has announced she is supporting outside Avi Gabbay in the race for the party’s leadership.In a Facebook post, Yachimovich praises Gabbay for opposing Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu when he was environmental protection Minister in the government for the Kulanu party.“His stance, as a single minister in the government, against Netanyahu and his corrupt gas extraction licensing agreement, is much more than a nice point in his past. It is a testament to the future,” she writes.Gabbay is running against Amir Peretz in the Monday runoff for head of the socialist-minded party. Yachimovich had been widely expected to back whoever ran against Peretz.
