    Remembering the Indian Soldiers Who Helped Liberate Jerusalem 100 Years Ago Indian Lancers guarding Turkish prisoners in Jerusalem in December 1917 Welcome Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, and thank you for the sacrifices made by your country’s soldiers who saved the Jews of the Land of Israel 100 years ago and eventually led to the Jewish state’s creation. An idyllic fenced park is located in the middle of the Talpiot neighborhood in Jerusalem, just a four-minute Waze-directed detour from Hebron Road. This cemetery, which I visited for the first time last week, is the burial site for 79 Indian soldiers...

    Dozens of right-wing demonstrators associated with the Lehava anti-assimilation organization gathered in the capital Thursday to protest the Jerusalem gay parade now underway. The demonstration was led Lehava chief Bentzi Gopstein, attorney Itamar Ben-Gvir, and Hevron activist and 2015 Yahad candidate Baruch Marzel. “You have no reason to [march] here,” Gopstein told parade participants. “You cannot have a [gay] pride march in the Land of Israel. If you have a problem, we will help you; we will treat you. This is not pride; it is an abomination.” Gopstein claimed the parade offended residents, and said the marchers would not have...

    At 3:30 a.m. on Sunday, Israeli police say, authorities arrested five Palestinian antiquities dealers in Jerusalem and confiscated items dating back thousands of years from their homes and shops: papyrus fragments from the Egyptian Book of the Dead, the bust of an Etruscan woman, a fresco from Pompeii depicting swimming fish. They also seized more modern objects — two black luxury Audi vehicles — and more than $200,000 in cash.
  • Some Clarity on The Temple Mount Issue...(hopefully)

    And they shall fall by the edge of the sword, and shall be led away captive into all nations: and Jerusalem shall be trodden down of the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled.(Luke 21:24)In lieu of recent events in Jerusalem surrounding the Temple Mount, there has been a difference of opinion which has arisen among prophecy watchers in the Christian community. On the one hand some of us were cautiously excited when headlines in Jerusalem proclaimed that the Jordanian Waqf was no longer controlling the 38 acre platform which many believe is the site of the first...

    Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Tuesday urged all Muslims to visit and protect Jerusalem after violence broke out over metal detectors that Israel installed and later removed from a sensitive holy site in the city. "From here I make a call to all Muslims. Anyone who has the opportunity should visit Jerusalem, Al-Aqsa mosque," Erdogan said in Ankara. "Come, let's all protect Jerusalem." He was referring to the site, known to Jews as the Temple Mount, which is central to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

    Arabs live among themselves in Syria, Iraq, Yemen, Libya, Jordan, Egypt - no Jews except a few - but are they happy? No, still they’re miserable: family feuds, tribal grudges, civil wars, thousands killed, millions homeless,brother against brother. President Trump needs to have a talk with Rex Tillerson. Tillerson’s State Department has issued a report that blames Israel for…EVERYTHING. Nobody saw that coming. Well I sure didn’t. Love Trump. Tillerson, not so much, even from the start. The report okays Arab violence as a means to redress “frustrations” and “disappointments”…such as “lack of hope in achieving Palestinian statehood.” The Jews,...

    What is happening on the Temple Mount has prophetic significance. The reborn Jewish nation will celebrate its 70th year since becoming a nation again (1948) which even on its own, sets off alarms for those who have ears to hear. Combined with the ability, just this week, of Jews to go up to, and pray upon, the Temple Mount, and a "generation that shall not pass away", we are set for some interesting and exciting times. All the end times nations are gradually gathering around Israel. It only takes a spark to set off the beginning of the ultimate world...

    The controversy surrounding the Israeli authorities' decision to place metal detectors at the gates of the Temple Mount calls to mind the famous Arab saying, "he beat me and cried then came to me to complain." This inversion of reality is a common among perpetrators who pretend to be victims. The decision to install the metal detectors came after Arab terrorists murdered two Israeli police officers at the Temple Mount on July 14. The three terrorists -- Israeli Arab citizens from the city of Umm al-Fahm -- used a submachine gun and knives to carry out their attack. The weapons...
  • The Times Of The Gentiles?

    …Jerusalem shall be trodden down of the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled.(Luke 21:24 b)In my last article I observed that the events of the past week may well lead to the complete fulfillment of several end time prophecies. I refer to the shoot out on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem, Israel’s holiest site. *Three ‘Palestinian’ terrorists murdered two Druze policemen on the platform [,which is the former site of both Jewish temples. The Jerusalem police department , no longer willing to allow the Holy Temple site to be a refuge for terrorists, took control of the...

    - Simply put, Jerusalem's Judaic history dates back to thousands of years before the birth of Islam, only in the seventh century CE. - As an American friend delicately asked: "Isn't Turkey supposed to be investing millions to help rebuild Gaza?" - Not, it seems, when Islamist ideology is involved. Less than a year ago, Turkey and Israel agreed to end their six-year-long diplomatic stand-off and officially "normalized" their relations. They appointed ambassadors Kemal Okem to Israel and Eitan Na'eh to Turkey, two prominent career diplomats, who, since then, have been struggling actually to normalize formally normalized ties. As some...

    SHOCKING NEW REPORT SAYS "LACK OF HOPE" IS A CAUSE OF PALESTINIAN VIOLENCE Rex Tillerson’s State Department added blistering anti-Israel language to this year’s “Country Reports on Terrorism,” adopting a tone not seen even during the hostile Obama era. On Wednesday, Tillerson submitted the annual report to Congress. This year’s report may come as a shock to the overwhelmingly pro-Israel majority that elected Donald Trump president. The report appears to blame Israel for the lack of peace between the two sides, pointing to a “lack of hope” as a “driver” for Palestinian violence. Tillerson’s State Department concluded that Palestinian terrorism...

    Vice President Mike Pence has stated that President Donald Trump will eventually move the United States embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, a symbolic gesture meant to convey that Jerusalem is Israel's capital. Speaking at the Christians United For Israel Summit in Washington, D.C. on Monday, Vice President Pence assured attendees that President Trump would move the embassy soon. "I promise you that the day will come when President Donald Trump moves the American embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. It is not a question of if, it is only when," stated Pence, as reported by Jewish News Service. "Standing...

    In recent years some famous Bible scholars have popularized the belief that the Psalm 83 War is yet to occur and will shortly precede the War of Gog and Magog (Ezekiel 38).  While this theory explains some of the pieces of the puzzle, such as why the nations listed in Psalm 83 are not mentioned in Ezekiel 38, it has at least one glaring problem: the geopolitical scene is not, at least right now, aligned in such a way for the Psalm 83 War to occur.  Egypt and Jordan are both at peace with Israel and are in fact...

    Dozens of Arabs rioted tonight (Monday), throwing stones and blocking the Maale Mota Gur road in Jerusalem. Police forces are on the scene and the rioters are being driven out using riot control measures. At the same time, dozens of Arabs gathered near the Lions' Gate and attacked policemen. The Arab riots are part of the Arab protest against the metal detectors at the entrances to the Temple Mount following the murderous attack on Friday. During the day, hundreds of Muslim worshipers came to the Al-Aqsa mosque but did not enter and prayed outside the Temple Mount to protest the...

    The Islamic Waqf Department in Jerusalem announced yesterday, July 15, that it had lost its definitive control over the Al-Aqsa Mosque. In its announcement, it said that the entire Al-Aqsa Mosque compound was a Muslim right only and all actions taken by Israel were a blatant violation of this right. The announcement by the Waqf Department came after the Israeli decision to close the Temple Mount in the wake of the shooting attack on Friday, during which two Border Policemen were murdered. The Waqf Department demanded that the Al-Aqsa Mosque be opened immediately and that Muslims be permitted to hold...

    UN organization declares Israel 'occupying power' of Old City, denies Israeli sovereignty. UNESCO’s World Heritage Committee passed a resolution condemning Israel for its policies in the Old City of Jerusalem Tuesday. Ten member states voted in favor of the resolution, three voted against it, and three states abstained. The resolution refers to Israel “the occupying power” in its capital and denies Israel's claims to the Old City and eastern Jerusalem. The wording of the Jordanian-sponsored resolution was softened compared to a similar resolution which was passed in 2016, with references to the Temple Mount removed. However, the resolution explicitly denied...
