    Lebanon seems to be having a flag sale. Iranian flags, Hezbollah, the UN, Spain, Palestinian flags. They are all flying provocatively along the border with the northern Israeli community of Metulla. Just meters from the fence that separates the countries, not far from the site of a 1985 terror attack, Hezbollah has festooned the roads with signs of its presence. It’s purposely done so Israeli residents can see the flags and the billboards next to them. In Metulla there is a memorial for the 12 Israeli soldiers killed in the 1985 suicide bombing, while just across the border a huge...

    talk in Southlake, Texas ^ | June 24, 2017 | Amir Tsarfati
    An update on politics, current events, the world situation--all with Amir's deep knowledge and Biblical perspective, and his ordering of our priorities. Long, but you will not be bored! I will put the link to the Gog and Magog speech in the thread. That one is not as current-events-oriented but seeks to clear up the confusions on what Gog and Magog means. This one is not as long but also fascinating, and explains the timeline in detail.
  • Mummy DNA May Prove Ancient Egyptians Descended From Son of Noah Exactly as Bible Describes

    In a scientific first, DNA taken from Egyptian mummies has been decoded, producing unexpected results about the true origins of the Egyptian people. These results confirm a controversial theory that traces the First Egyptian Dynasty back to Biblical Ham, as described in the Book of Genesis. Scientists have long been baffled by the origins of the Egyptian people. Until now, there was no empirical data to clarify the issue. The study of Egypt’s population history could only draw on literary and indirect archaeological references, and inferences made from genetic studies of present-day Egyptians. Based on these sources, most researchers believed...

    Here is the latest, postponed from yesterday to today. The prophecy teaching starts at about the 17-minute mark, but I encourage you to watch the beginning, where Amir again stresses the reading of God's word in general, not just the prophecy parts. He emphasizes this again at the end. He encourages us not to become prophecy freaks. Enjoy this and learn a great deal!
  • 2 Men Arrested “Scouting” Areas… Their Ties Will Make You Shake (Hizballa)

    US Middle East Envoy Jason Greenblatt spoke to senior Israeli officials and representatives of the Palestinian Authority about the US plan for negotiating a final status agreement, Channel 20 reported. Among the items mentioned in the US proposal were: slowing building in Judea and Samaria, creating security arrangements in partnership with Jordan and the Gulf states, and normalizing Israel's relations with the Arab countries. According to the plan, negotiations will begin in September, following the meeting between US President Donald Trump, Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, and Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas in Washington, D.C. The plan also requires both...

    The situation in the Middle East may be heating up rapidly. Not long after several countries cut ties with Qatar and enacted a blockade against its shipments, one of the most powerful Arab nations has just issued a serious ultimatum. “Saudi Arabia gives Qatar 24 hr ultimatum to fulfill 10 conditions that have been sent,” stated Reza H. Akbari from the Institute for Peace and War Reporting. The indications are that if Qatar ignores those conditions, Saudi Arabia is prepared to take military action. Sky News Arabia confirmed Akbari’s report. “Our sources: Saudi Arabia has informed Kuwait of 10 conditions...

    Turkey's parliament is expected to fast-track on Wednesday a draft bill allowing its troops to be deployed to a Turkish military base in Qatar, officials from the ruling AK Party and the nationalist opposition said. The move appears to support the Gulf Arab country as it faces diplomatic and trade isolation from some of the biggest Middle Eastern powers.

    Doha, Qatar (CNN)Qatar's leader is expected to address his nation Tuesday, one day after the country was thrust into the center of an unprecedented diplomatic crisis that threatens to disrupt everyday life and leave the oil-rich nation isolated from key allies. The last flights operated by Emirates and other major regional airlines left the capital Doha early Tuesday after Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Egypt, Bahrain, Yemen and the Maldives said Monday they are indefinitely severing ties with Qatar --- a country of 2.4 million people, mostly foreign workers. Emir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al-Thani had been due to...
  • Democratic Rep. Mark Pocan Identified as Lawmaker Behind Anti-Israel Capitol Hill Forum

    Rep. Mark Pocan (D., Wis.) has been identified as the anonymous member of Congress who reserved official Capitol Hill space for an anti-Israel forum that is being organized by several organizations that support boycotts of the Jewish state, according to congressional sources who spoke to the Washington Free Beacon. News of the June 8 anti-Israel event, which was first disclosed earlier this week by the Free Beacon, sparked outrage on Capitol Hill and initiated a search to identify the anonymous member of Congress sponsoring the event. The event, which sources confirmed to the Free Beacon is being sponsored by Pocan,...

    Rozenblum said her job is to exactly translate the president’s words from English to Hebrew, even if she disagrees with what he’s saying. A San Francisco teacher hired to translate into Hebrew President Trump’s “not very eloquent” (as she puts it) speeches last week in Saudi Arabia and Jerusalem said she isn’t proud to be working for this administration and promised “my students get preference, especially over this particular president.” Merav Rozenblum, a Hebrew teacher at Jewish Community High School of the Bay, is a contract translator for the State Department and has worked with three presidents — including a...

    As we are writing this column, President Trump just left Rome, after what can be considered a highly successful visit to Saudi Arabia and the Holy Land, as even The New York Times had to acknowledge. The purposeful contrast in his remarkable speech to over 50 heads of states from Muslim majority nations in the Saudi capital of Riyadh from President Obama’s June 4, 2009 Cairo speech, was evident, and confirmed the historical importance of Trump’s election for U.S. foreign policy and America’s standing in the world. Hilary Clinton, most definitely, would not have given this speech! Rereading Obama’s 2009...

    What a difference a week makes. On May 19, President Donald Trump took off in Air Force One for the Middle East and Europe. He left behind a Washington and a nation buzzing about his firing of FBI Director James Comey, the multiple reasons he had given for doing so, the meeting he'd had with the Russian foreign minister a day later and his statement that Comey is a "nut job." The I-word -- impeachment -- was in the air as Democrats and mainstream media muttered that he was obstructing justice by attempting to throttle investigation of collusion with...

    The same Trump so many liberals criticized for hating Muslims was given a welcome fit for a king by 50 Muslim leaders, all while knowing the US president loves the Zionist idea of the right of the Jews over their historic ancestral homeland, Zion, and their ancient capital Jerusalem. In his own way, Trump apparently understands the Middle East more than all the Middle East analysts and political advisors. In this region, leaders respect the strong and despise a leader who weakens his allies. Arab leaders appreciate his standing with Israel because they know that by doing so he will...

    Especially a certain regime used to having the president of the United States excuse their evil The key bit starts around 9:00, and what makes it so extraordinary is not so much that Trump condemns terrorism - even Obama was willing to do that at least rhetorically - but because he put so much emphasis on who the victims are, and refused to countenance the usual excuses offered to explain away the motivations of individual terrorists. And Trump laid it out in a surprisingly eloquent manner: The potential of the Middle East itself is held back by terrorism. No way...
