For Zion's sake will I not hold my peace, and for Jerusalem's sake I will not rest, until the righteousness thereof go forth as brightness, and the salvation thereof as a lamp that burneth. Isaiah 62:1
URGENT ACTION ALERT: The Jew-hating UN Human Rights Council in Geneva has voted to form an international commission of inquiry for FALSELY alleged Israeli "war crimes" in Gaza.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has rightly denounced the decision as "a travesty that should be condemned by decent people everywhere" – We MUST Stand With Israel TODAY!
Twenty-nine nations SHAMEFULLY voted in favor of creating the UN commission; only one member-state voted against it, and 17 abstained.
THIS, as in the last 48 hours, two Hamas terrorist cells fatally infiltrated southern Israel via a tunnel from the Gaza Strip and Israel was compelled in self-defense to prosecute the 16th day of Operation Protective Edge.
Israel Defense Force casualties have mounted to a reported loss of 32 soldiers and at least 3 civilian fatalities. HELP US PRAY AND ADVOCATE FOR ISRAEL!
The pro-Palestinian media continues to pound Israel's determined defense of its civilians against unremitting rocket attacks by anti-Semitic, terrorist Hamas – murderous Jew-haters committed to wiping the state of Israel off the map.
The international community has not only FAILED to come to Israel's defense but is now launching false UN "war crimes" propaganda against Israel for the civilian Palestinian losses that Hamas has explicitly orchestrated in its strategy of using its population as human shields.
And our own Islamist-in-Chief Barack Obama FINALLY called Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu NOT offering support for the embattled Jewish State, but to DEMAND a ceasefire WITH THE HAMAS TERRORISTS, while admonishing both sides "not to act out of revenge."
Thank God for the Iron Dome anti-rocket defense system, resupply parts funding for which Congress needs THE U.S. URGENTLY TO REAUTHORIZE, as you BLAST Congress to STAND WITH ISRAEL.
Two Americans who were soldiers for the Israel Defense Force were among those killed in combat in the Gaza Strip.
Stuart Steinberg confirmed the death of his 24-year-old son Max Steinberg to The Associated Press. Steinberg, whose family lives in Southern California's San Fernando Valley, was a sharpshooter for the elite Golani Brigade and was one of 13 men killed in fighting Saturday.
Earlier Sunday, the IDF said in a statement that 21-year-old Sgt. Nissim Sean Carmeli perished in combat in the Gaza Strip. Israeli Deputy Consul General Maya Kadosh says Carmeli was from South Padre Island, Texas.
Steinberg was living in Beersheba, Israel. He attended Pierce College and El Camino Real High School in Southern California. After visiting Israel, he decided to return and join the IDF in December 2012.
In Eretz Israel, such a small nation, every soldier's death is a wound to the heart of the people. Join with us to pray for these young warriors and to Stand With Israel!
Wholly unsurprising, the Arab League is calling on the United Nations Security Council NOT to impede Islamic terrorists from lobbing rockets into the Jewish homeland targeted at Israeli civilian population centers, but to STOP Israel from its pinpoint air strikes specifically targeted at Hamas leadership and the terror group's infrastructure!
With no end in sight to the escalating conflict – mobilized throughout Israel as Operation Protective Edge – we MUST turn up public pressure on Congress to STOP funding the terrorist Palestinian Authority and their thug cohort Hamas, and HALT Obama's negotiate-with-terrorists ploy by enacting S. 2265, the Stand With Israel Act of 2014!
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is blocking the Senate from passing S. 2265 that would HALT financial aid to the Palestinian Authority – as U.S. law already requires under the Foreign Operations Appropriations Act of 2006 – until her elements in its unity government recognizes Israel and abides by recent agreements, Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) charged on Monday.
"Just today, Hamas launched 80 rockets into Israel designed to murder innocent civilians. And in my view, the U.S should not send a single penny to any unity government that has Hamas as a part of it," Cruz said during an interview with conservative radio host Mark Levin.
Cruz argued that the bill named 'Stand with Israel Act of 2014,' proposed by Senator Rand Paul (R-KY), would receive the support of a majority of senators "if we had a vote on it."
State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki stated last week that the U.S. government does not believe Hamas – the TERRORIST group raining HUNDREDS of rockets daily into Israeli population centers and openly calling for the destruction of Israel – plays a role in the new PA "unity" government it is formally structured to help LEAD.
And on Sunday, Sec. of State John Kerry was caught on camera criticizing Israel for civilian casualties in Palestinian Authority-held Gaza – despite days of warnings to the general population to evacuate.
Obama administration pro-Palestinian bias is BLATANT and DANGEROUS. Congress MUST rein in Obama's betrayal of Israel, before it is TOO LATE!
The Obama admin's quite frankly astonishing claims about Hamas picked up by Free Beacon came after CNN reporter Elise Labott questioned Psaki about the United States' ongoing support of the Palestinian 'unity government,' saying, "You've seen the comments that are coming out of Hamas. And now that the U.S. has, in effect, kind of accepted the fact that Hamas is now in this unity government, you would think that as leader of this unity government, it would be incumbent on President Abbas to rein in or take – you know, try and maintain some kind of control over the activities of Hamas."
"You're right in a sense that we've stated from the beginning that we would judge the interim government by its actions, composition and policies," Psaki responded. "And based on what we know now, it hasn't changed. We don't believe that Hamas plays a role in the government."
Labott countered that, despite the technicality, "It is a unity government that includes Hamas. And I'm just wondering, now does President Abbas, more so than ever, bear responsibility for the actions of Hamas?"
Claiming Hamas had no role in the government, Psaki insisted that Abbas does not bear any responsibility for Hamas' actions, while also admitting that "It is difficult to see how other aspects of the reconciliation process can move forward in this current atmosphere. And we've conveyed that as well." Talking out of both sides of your mouth is a job requirement for Obama State Department political appointees, apparently.
Hamas is NOT the innocent bystander in the so-called "unity" government that the Obama administration has either deluded itself into thinking it is, or else has chosen to LIE about.
This is the terrorist organization ACTIVELY sending EVER INTENSIFYING barrages of rockets into Israeli neighborhoods following the murder of a Palestinian teenager in retaliation for the Hamas-tied kidnapping and murder of three Israeli teens.
Daily there are hundreds of rockets fired on Israel since mid-June – that's right HUNDREDS! And Hamas is NOT slowing down, vowing revenge for the deaths of scores of Hamas militants and the civilians they use as from Israeli air strikes related to the kidnapping-murders.
Israel has been compelled to respond defensively with Operation Protective Edge, and a national mobilization as civilian population centers are hammered now by over a THOUSAND rockets from Gaza…
Reuters reports Hamas spokesman Sami Abu Zuhri accused Israel of committing a "grave escalation" in violence and threatened "endless" retaliation, saying Israel would "pay the price" from Hamas.
WITH NO TIME TO LOSE, CONGRESS MUST DRAW THE BIG, RED LINE WHEN IT COMES TO HAMAS BECAUSE OBAMA NEVER WILL!
There is no "moderation" or possibility of "good faith with terrorists – that's why American policy has been NOT to negotiate with perpetrators or sponsors of terrorism.
Yet Obama and Kerry are still set on funding the upper echelon of those terrorists responsible for the brutal, execution-style murders of three innocent Jewish teenagers, Gilad Shaer, Naftali Frankel, and Eyal Yifrach.
And NOW we have Hamas to answer for the deaths of at least TWO American Jewish soldiers fighting for the IDF and our democratic ally, Eretz Israel…
Again, Republican U.S. Senator Ted Cruz of Texas is loudly condemning Hamas for the terrorist organization that it is and calling for ACTION to condemn Hamas as well as the sham "unity" front being presented by the Palestinian Authority and with which this administration is eager for U.S.- Israeli diplomatic "agreements"…
Cruz released the following statement:
"The brutal murder Hamas carried out of three innocent Jewish teenagers is a terrorist-led atrocity that demands justice. While we lift Gilad Shaer, Naftali Frankel, and Eyal Yifrach and their loving families up in prayer, we must also act. Hamas is, unequivocally, a terrorist organization with blood on its hands that must be condemned on the world stage. There should be no path forward for Hamas to have any role in any future government formed by the Palestinian Authority, and no nation should accommodate, legitimize, or negotiate with this group that engages in the killing of innocent civilians. The Palestinian Authority should immediately renounce Hamas and actively work to expel Hamas from civil society. The United States should stand unequivocally with the Nation of Israel as it responds to this brutal terrorism and acts forcefully to protect its people."
President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry have since issued the obligatory statements condemning the cold-blooded murder of Gilad, Naftali, and Eyal – while appearing TOTALLY prepared to proceed with their absurd and dangerous diplomatic forays toward the Hamas terrorists!
NEITHER of their statements mentioned Hamas OR called on Palestinian Authority chairman Mahmoud Abbas to end the "unity" government to deal with them. Both statements DID caution against any action that could "destabilize" the current situation; advice most likely aimed at Israel whose own Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyah had already RIGHTLY gone on the record saying, "Hamas is responsible, and Hamas will pay."
Naftali Frankel held duel U.S. and Israeli citizenship and yet Obama's statement sounds like this… "I also urge all parties to refrain from steps that could further destabilize the situation."
Weak and pathetic and shameful and dangerous.
Even after the kidnapping and MURDER of one American and two Israeli teenagers in the West Bank AND Hamas' Iranian-funded jihadi leaders calling for MORE kidnappings of innocent Jews, the Obama administration is going full steam ahead with its foolish (malevolent) plans to fund the Hamas+Fatah "unity" government.
"This act of terrorism should also alert the Obama Administration to the fact that working with, recognizing, and/or funding any 'unity' government that includes those that seek the destruction of the Jewish State is naive and foolish," Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) remarked on the kidnappings. "Such legitimization of the enemies of Israel and the United States only invites more violence. As Prime Minister Netanyahu pointed out, 'You remember that Israel warned the international community about the dangers of endorsing the Fatah-Hamas unity pact. The dangers of that pact now should be abundantly clear to all.'"
"President Obama should immediately direct the Department of State to suspend assistance to the Palestinian Authority until the PA recognizes Israel's right to exist as a Jewish State and takes specific and affirmative steps to renounce and eradicate terrorism," Cruz concluded. "This most recent vicious attack on innocent young civilians demonstrates beyond any doubt that the PA is not fulfilling these conditions, and not one more U.S. taxpayer dollar should be sent to support them until they do," Cruz said
With Iraq self-destructing and Obama considering a foolish alliance with IRAN, Israel will assuredly be delivered by the Obama Administration to her enemies unless Congress takes IMMEDIATE ACTION to DEFUND THE PA AND STAND WITH ISRAEL!
The terrorists Hamas, responsible for the murder of hundreds of Israelis, have united with the Fatah party under the leadership of Mahmoud Abbas. Following an announcement by the Obama administration that it is READY TO WORK WITH AND FUND this new "interim Palestinian unity government" – HA! – Israeli ambassador to the United States Ron Dermer made clear on Twitter that Israel is "deeply disappointed."
That is putting it more civilly than we would! "So a Palestinian technocratic government backed by Hamas should be treated accordingly," Dermer tweeted. "With suits in the front office and terrorists in the back office, it should not be business as usual."
And of course, on the ground in Israel, it hasn't been. Since the nonsense from Obama's State Department, provocative murders of unarmed Israeli teenagers and accelerating rockets attacks by Hamas have escalated into a significant Israeli defense operation to contain the savage terrorist threat – "Operation Protective Edge."
TELL CONGRESS – NO FUNDING FOR HAMAS + FATAH!
This is the "unity" that Barack Obama foreign policy has the U.S. shamefully supporting and the "legitimacy" of which (it has none) Secretary of State John Kerry has vowed not to rush to judgment!
House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA) and others have already called for a suspension in aid to the Palestinians – but State Department spox Jen Psaki says the U.S. won't pursue that option "at this time."
IT IS NOT UP TO THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION WHEN CONGRESS STILL CONTROLS THE PURSE STRINGS – IF ONLY THE HOUSE WILL ACT!
Please, tell Congress that funding for Hamas+Fatah is NOT AN OPTION.
Stand with Israel!
America under Obama is already doing enough harm to Israel.
Israel-hater U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry told world leaders in a closed door meeting that Israel risked becoming "an apartheid state" if it fails to pursue his "peace process" and reach a two-state solution with the Palestinians…
Kerry has poisonously provided this provocative, hateful epithet to incite Israel's enemies against her. With this statement, he has clearly and nakedly declared the Obama administration's alliance with those global forces, our enemies, who in the 1980s launched the LIE "Zionism is racism" in an attempt to exterminate the Jewish State.
We will NOT allow the United States to be made complicit with Israel's sworn enemies! Kerry MUST be removed from office.
"Once you put that frame in your mind, that reality, which is the bottom line, you understand how imperative it is to get to the two-state solution, which both leaders, even yesterday, said they remain deeply committed to," Kerry claimed.
The truth: The "crime of apartheid" according to the 1998 Rome Statute is defined as "inhuman acts… committed in the context of an institutionalized regime of systematic oppression and domination by one racial group over any other racial group or groups and committed with the intention of maintaining that regime."
KERRY ACTS AS AN ANTI-ISRAEL AGENT. HE MUST BE REMOVED FROM THE U.S. CABINET.
Context for Kerry's comments are especially important.
These remarks came DAYS after Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas announced a "reconciliation government" UNITING FATAH WITH HAMAS TERRORISTS. This is the one and only TERRORIST HAMAS which refuses to renounce violence or recognize Israel's right to exist. Of course, when they speak in Arabic, Abbas and Fatah leaders refuse to recognize Israel's right to exist, too!
Kerry's defamation actually COULD be TRUTHFULLY applied to the refusal of Muslims to coexist with Jews under the Palestinian Authority in the West Bank or Hamas in Gaza – but it wasn't…
Instead, it is our ally Israel that Kerry painted with all the racist connotation of "apartheid" from South African history as the Obama administration increasingly takes the side of Hamas' renewed "partner" – the Palestinian Authority!
STAND WITH ISRAEL, WHO REFUSES TO PARTNER WITH TERRORISTS.
"A strong Israel is our response to the horrors of anti-Semitism but it does not excuse the rest of the world from its responsibility to prevent this disease from returning to their own homes," Israeli President Shimon Peres remarked in his Holocaust Day address.
Israel MUST NOT be falsely portrayed on the wrong side of history via shrill shrieks for a two-state solution – and certainly NOT by John Kerry or ANY official United States representative! AMERICA STANDS WITH ISRAEL!
And certainly NOT when one of the two parties refuses to recognize the right to exist by the other!
U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz rightly called for Kerry's resignation over the "apartheid state" defamation – one that then-candidate Barack Obama explicitly REJECTED in 2008 when he wanted America's votes! Rep. Eric Cantor called for an apology… but Kerry's apology is meaningless because the damage is done, and will be done AGAIN by Obama and Kerry in the days ahead.
We need action from Congress – TODAY.
Congress must AC, forcefully, in support of our ally before Kerry's renewed international hate campaign against Israel can gain accelerated traction. Kerry has MALICIOUSLY handed ammunition to global Jew hatred – and ONLY his removal from office can now defuse and disarm that explosive weapon!
U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) rose immediately in response from the Senate floor to call for U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry's resignation following the secretary's comments at the Trilateral Commission. The use of "apartheid" terminology toward the Jewish State is a blatant renewal of the "Zionism is racism" propaganda campaign crafted by the Soviets in the 1980s and deployed by anti-Semite states of the world designed to annihilate Israel. Kerry's morally corrupt claim that Israel could become an "apartheid state" if the Jewish State does not comply, and his proposed two-state solution to the peace Israeli-Palestinian peace process fails is a betrayal of our democratic ally and DISQUALIFYING of office.
American and multi-lateral policy historically, U.N. Resolution 242, the Oslo and Camp David Accords ALL have affirmed the obligation of the intransigent Palestinians to forswear terrorism and acknowledge the legitimacy of the Jewish State of Israel, and for all nations to respect the prerogatives of Israel and Palestinian authorities to negotiate their own peace and border treaties. These solemn and binding agreements MUST prevail over Barack Obama's dangerous duplicity and pro-Palestinian proclivities.
U.S. long-standing assurances, support and previous binding resolutions that Israel shall negotiate her own borders with her Arab enemies, once they cease hostilities, must stand – unimpeded by Obama's rank betrayal – if America is to have any international credibility, is to merit any respect with decent humanity, and is to retain any favor with God for honoring His Word.
Genesis 12:3 "And I will bless them that bless thee and curse him that curseth thee; and in thee shall all nations of the earth be blessed."
Simultaneously, Iran and other Muslim states continue their renewed campaign of defamation AND aggression against Israel over alleged Palestinian lands. Any further compromise on unilateral Palestinian "statehood" or Israeli territorial boundaries imperils Israel and could result in the total annihilation of our greatest Middle Eastern ally. The 1967 "borders" Obama still is attempting to dictate to Israel are in fact the armistice lines of repeated Arab attacks against the Jewish state, are INDEFENSIBLE, AND NOT rightly the basis of any negotiation for permanent Israeli borders.
The State Department's Psaki, who spoke to the Palestinian Authority (PA)-based Arabic language Al-Quds newspaper, said, "The American position is clear, Israel is a Jewish state. However, we do not see a need that both sides recognize this position as part of the final agreement."
The present present intensifying violent aggression by the Palestinians necessitating Israel's military defensive response, which follows the "breakdown" in the Kerry-Obama "peace talks" will be much decried – but Israel's strong hand will do more GOOD than HARM! It seems YOUR prayers and advocacy are being answered, as there has been a rising spirit among the Israeli cabinet to resist diplomatic accommodations that lead to capitulation to evil. KEEP PRAYING the defense of Israel and that this whole flawed and malicious "peace process" cannot go forward.
Pray for the slain valiant IDF-American soldiers, Max Steinberg and Nissim Sean Carmeli, and for the three innocent murdered boys – Gilad Shaer, Naftali Frankel, and Eyal Yifrach – and their heartbroken families. Please pray their deaths help expose worldwide the utter moral depravity of the terrorist "reconciliation" government that has the Palestinian Authority partnering with Hamas-Fatah! Pray these cruel losses reveal the truth to the world about Palestinian attacks and genocidal intentions toward Israel! Pray the Israeli cabinet HOLDS THE LINE and VOTES DOWN Obama's DEMANDS for bad negotiations and dangerous compromises, and continues to STAND STRONG in defense of the Jewish State, and to keep SUSPENDED the Kerry-Obama peace talks, so clearly NOT in Israel's interest.
Please pray for Netanyahu – for his protection and that he will be able to continue to withstand the enormous pressure exerted upon him now by the Obama administration AND the malign United Nations because of the Palestinians humiliating Kerry and resorting to intensified violence. We who love Israel must stand firm until the destruction passes us by. One of the chief instruments of this White House is intimidation and threats, and propaganda and pressure from the UN international forums. Together with mobilizing counterweight on Obama from Congress and passage of S. 2265 DEFUNDING the Palestinian Authority, we need the Lord to intervene. This is a crucial time of testing. Pray Netanyahu will not collapse under the weight of the incessant duplicity and badgering as did Rabin and Sharon. Please pray protection against lies from the Leftist media in Israel, as well as the United States.
Pray as well that ANY "negotiations" necessary to accommodating the PA linked with Hamas will be rejected. Israel has NO peace partner in the Palestinians. Pray there is no making concessions to evil; no making concessions of land or settlements, or the freeing of any further terrorists from Israeli jails. THE "TWO-STATE SOLUTION" IS A TRAP FOR ISRAEL! Judea and Samaria are promised to the Jews; the Palestinians already have their homeland in Jordan. Suspension of negotiations with bad actors will block this false, destructive "peace process" from going further – and protect Israel. We should pray that every stage of this so-called process may be halted by the Arm of the Lord. All observers in Israel admit that enormous pressure is being exerted from the U.S. government to deal unfairly with the Jewish State, in political appeasement of the Palestinian Authority and Hamas terrorists. We need YOU to BLAST Congress and insist they act boldly to protect Israel's ability to defend herself, and the West!
As observed by foreign affairs expert Caroline Glick, Obama is
There is a liberal majority of the Democrat party that no longer stands foursquare with Israel – and under the "leadership" of Obama, the betrayal of Israel is becoming party policy.
IT MUST NOT BECOME AMERICA'S POLICY.
CONGRESS MUST NOT DISHONOR OUR NATION BY BESMIRCHING OUR RIGHTFUL HISTORY OF SUPPORT FOR THE JEWISH STATE.
THE UNITED STATES MUST NOT FUND THE HAMAS-FATAH TERRORIST 'UNITY' FRONT!
AMERICA STANDS WITH ISRAEL. PLEASE PRAY AND ACT FOR THE SAFETY OF ISRAEL…
