The problem is that even people who say they believe in the Bible and G-d choose to deny the truth about Israel. They brush over what G-d says and what He wants regarding the Jewish people. And Pastor Hagee wants those people to know that you cannot deny the Bible and G-d like that. It is anti-Christian!

Elaine,

A great many people ignore what the scriptures tell us about Israel.  Unfortunately, far too many Christians believe that the Church has replaced the Nation of Israel which is not true.

Those who are saved are part of the Israel of God.  As the scriptures state all of Israel (the Israel of God) will be saved.  But, the Nation of Israel that has reject Jesus is not saved.  The unsaved Nation of Israel is not part of the Israel of God.  They are an unsaved Jewish Nation.

Brenda,

It was never taught to me, it came natural, being born again of the Holy Spirit of God the understanding, even when people spoke of replacement I knew it was wrong. The Jews have always been his chosen people. God is not a liar and he does not change his mind. I cannot understand how someone who profess to be born again can go along with what is being said.

What is so wonderful is that now Israel have allowed a Channel to speak of Jesus.

Blessings

Elaine

WASHINGTON — Following the Republican and Democratic national conventions, groups associated with the Black Lives Matter movement released a platform Monday that labels Israel an “apartheid state” and excoriates the United States for its alliance with a country it alleges systemically perpetrates a “genocide” against the Palestinians.
 
The platform, which demands “an end to the war against Black people,” marks the campaign’s first official entry into America’s debate over specific federal policies. In the past, Black Lives Matter has been noted for its protests against disparities within the nation’s criminal justice system that disadvantage African-Americans and other minorities.
 
The document makes 40 policy proposals, including abolishing the death penalty, providing free tuition to public universities, and enacting reparations to Black Americans, and addressed matters of US foreign policy in a section titled “Invest-Divest.”

Highly critical of the Jewish state — which it said “practices systematic discrimination and has maintained a military occupation of Palestine for decades” — the platform devoted a section to the US-Israel relationship. “The US justifies and advances the global war on terror via its alliance with Israel and is complicit in the genocide taking place against the Palestinian people,” the text said.
 
The platform goes on to suggest America’s close relationship with Israel and commitment to its security makes “US citizens complicit in the abuses committed by the Israeli government.”
 
“Israel is an apartheid state with over 50 laws on the books that sanction discrimination against the Palestinian people,” it continued. “Palestinian homes and land are routinely bulldozed to make way for illegal Israeli settlements. Israeli soldiers also regularly arrest and detain Palestinians as young as 4 years old without due process. Every day, Palestinians are forced to walk through military checkpoints along the US-funded apartheid wall.”
 
Israel’s security fence was constructed during the Second Intifada, from 2000-2005, to prevent Palestinian suicide bombers from infiltrating the country. More than 1,000 Israeli civilians were killed during that period, according to the International Institute for Counter-Terrorism.

At the end of this section, the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) campaign against Israel is advertised as a resource, along with a website for Black-Palestinian solidarity.
 
The platform was released by The Movement for Black Lives, an umbrella group of more than 50 organizations, including the Black Lives Matter Network, the Black Liberation Collective, and the Center for Constitutional Rights, which often promotes the Palestinian cause.
 
Over the past two years, there has been much speculation over attempts by the pro-Palestinian movement to converge with Black Lives Matter and other social justice-related campaigns.
 
During protests over police treatment of African Americans in Ferguson, Missouri and Baltimore, Maryland, activists complained to reporters that the conditions of having heavily-armed police officers in those cities was comparable to being in Gaza.
 
That claim came almost a year after the 2014 Israel-Hamas war in the Gaza strip, when the Pew Research Center found that 43 percent of African-American respondents favored Israel in the conflict, while 20 percent supported the Palestinians.

Molotov-throwing Muslim Lawyer in Brooklyn Was Intern for Soros-funded Anti-Israel Group
By Atlas Shrugs - on June 14, 2020
GEORGE SOROS: THE BLACK HAND
The black hand strikes again. It is no surprise that Urooj Rahman would be involved with Soros-funded leftist groups supporting the “Palestinian” jihad. The left and the global jihad are united in their hatred of the United States and Israel, and their determination to bring both down.
 
“Molotov-throwing Lawyer in Brooklyn Was Intern for Soros-funded Anti-Israel Group,” by Joshua Klein, Breitbart, June 12, 2020:
One of the two lawyers accused of trying to torch an NYPD cruiser during protests that engulfed Brooklyn over the weekend spent a summer in the West Bank as a fellow and intern with radical Palestinian activist organizations.
 
Two attorneys, Colinford Mattis, 32, and Urooj Rahman, 31, reportedly were caught attempting to distribute homemade molotov cocktail devices to protesters who were clashing with police near the 88th Precinct in Fort [sic].
 
“Rahman attempted to distribute Molotov cocktails to the witness and others so that those individuals could likewise use the incendiary devices in furtherance of more destruction and violence,” a witness was quoted as saying to authorities in a detention memo from federal prosecutors for the Eastern District of New York.
 
Rahman was captured in a photo obtained by the New York Daily News wearing a Palestinian keffiyeh on her face and holding a makeshift Molotov cocktail. The keffiyeh, a chequered black and white scarf, has become a symbol of Palestinian nationalism.
 
Rahman is a graduate from Fordham University law school. In 2014, she did a summer fellowship internship program at the Israel based Mada Al-Carmel’s Arab Center for Applied Social Research in a partnership program with Palestine Works.
 
The Mada Al-Carmel center is heavily financed by George Soros through his Open Society Foundations.
 
NGO Monitor lists some of the radical organization’s political advocacy. The center co-authored the “Haifa Declaration” which calls for a “change in the definition of the State of Israel from a Jewish state” and accuses Israel of “exploiting” the Holocaust “at the expense of the Palestinian people.”
 
The September 2011 edition of Mada al Carmel’s journal Jadal focused on “Boycotting Israel: Between Theory and Practice.”
 
As part of her Soros-backed fellowship at the Mada Al-Carmel center, Rahman spent a week with the radical Palestine Work organization.
 
“Each day includes presentations and workshops led by attorneys and human rights advocates, as well as field visits to human rights flashpoints, such as East Jerusalem, Hebron, the Jordan Valley,” the site states.
 
Rahman wrote an article for Fordham’s human rights newsletter upon her return to the U.S., describing attending a flashpoint anti-Israel protest against Israeli troops.
 
The article, titled, “Witnessing occupation, apartheid and resistance in Palestine/Israel” may be instructive in understanding her mindset and alleged criminal actions over the weekend.
 
She wrote (emphasis added):
 
I witnessed this oppression quite vividly on my initial visit to the West Bank. I was greeted by heavily armed Israel Defense Force soldiers (aka the Israeli Occupational Force) ushering people through Qalandia Checkpoint, one of the main points of entry into Ramallah in the West Bank from Jerusalem and a potent symbol of Israeli occupation. While taking part in one of the largest protests in the West Bank since the second intifadah this past July, I saw how peaceful protests at Qalandia (and other places) can turn into violent clashes when IDF soldiers provoke violence using tear gas, stun grenades, rubber-coated steel bullets and, often, live ammunition at civilians exercising their free speech. Over 40,000 strong, this protest was composed of youth, families, women, men, children and grandparents, all of whom marched together from the center of Ramallah to Qalandia checkpoint on the road to Jerusalem. What started out as a peaceful demonstration of resistance to the occupation and in solidarity with fellow Palestinians in Gaza—who were at this time facing aerial bombardment while under an occupational blockade with nowhere to escape—turned into an all-out clash. Young Palestinians were forced to resort to throwing rocks, their only form of self-defense, as IDF soldiers fired tear gas and skin-penetrating bullets into a peaceful crowd.”
 
Rahman expressed similar sentiments about the U.S. In a 2015 article for the same newsletter, she claims “militarized over-policing goes hand-in-hand with the gentrification of neighborhoods in New York City and throughout the country.” Rahman argues that “the process of gentrification runs its course with the help of institutionalized racism,” aided by police targeting of black and brown communities to pave the way for proponents of gentrification….

Palestinian “Expert”: “Israel is Building the Third Temple Under the Aqsa Mosque”
By Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz January 29, 2020 , 4:14 pm
In that day, I will set up again the fallen booth of David: I will mend its breaches and set up its ruins anew. I will build it firm as in the days of old,” Amos 9:11 (The Israel Bible™)
 
Thousands of Muslims pray in front of the Dome of the Rock on the compound known to Muslims as al-Haram al-Sharif and to Jews as Temple Mount during the second Friday of the holy month of Ramadan in Jerusalem’s Old City, June 26, 2015. (Photo: Suliman Khader/Flash90)
 
A Palestinian “expert” appeared on official PA television, repeating a libelous claim that has become the battle-cry of terrorists. The “expert” managed to fit several other false claims into his few minutes in the spotlight including misidentifying the Muslim building that stands on top of Solomon’s Temple.
 
Palestinian Media Watch (PMW), a media watchdog that focuses on Palestinian anti-Israel propaganda, reported on the Arabic language program that was broadcast last month on the official Palestinian television network. The program was an interview featuring Expert on international law Dr. Ibrahim Al-Rabi, who was described as an “expert on international law.”
 
Official PA TV reporter: “There is construction work taking place under the Al-Aqsa Mosque to build the alleged Temple of Solomon…”
 
Expert on international law Dr. Ibrahim Al-Rabi: “Regarding this [Western] wall that the Jews claim is the remains of the Temple of Solomon – it must be understood that UNESCO has said that this wall has no connection to Jews, but is rather an Islamic heritage. In other words, it is subject to Palestinian rule and the Jews have no right to it.”
 
Unfortunately, Dr. Al-Rabi’s claim concerning the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) is accurate. UNESCO has indeed passed several resolutions claiming that there is no connection, historical or religious, between the Jewish people and their holiest site. 
 
Dr. Al-Rabi’s claim is, however, erroneous regarding a few points. The claim that the Temple Mount has any significance to Islam is inaccurate and deeply insulting to some branches of Islam. Jerusalem only took on any significance in Islam in the late 8th century when the Bedouin Muslims prevented the Damascus Muslims from making Haj (pilgrimage) to Mecca. As an alternative destination for Haj, the Damascus Muslims decided on Jerusalem, adding a Hadith (oral commentary) shifting the scene of Muhammad’s Night Journey to Jerusalem in order to justify their decision.
 
The source of the Muslim holiday of “Isra” (journey) and “Mi’raj” (ascension, literally ‘ladder’) and the entire Muslim claim to Jerusalem as a holy site is based on a story in the Quran. According to the Quran, Muhammad traveled from Saudi Arabia to “Al-Aqsa” (the far mosque).  From there, he ascended to Heaven, returning to Earth the next day. 
Dr. Al-Rabi is also mistaken about the Muslim structures on the Temple Mount. Al-Aqsa is the silver domed mosque on the southern end of the Temple Mount compound. The site of Solomon’s Temple is now covered by a shrine (not a mosque) with a gold dome, called Qubbat al-Sakhrah by the Arabs.
 
PMW described this claim of Israeli construction under the Temple Mount as “one of the most lethal recurring Palestinian Authority libels.”
 
“The PA regularly claims that Israel excavates under the Temple Mount, thereby endangering the Al-Aqsa Mosque,” PMW stated. “Many Palestinian terrorists who murdered Israelis have explained that they killed in defense of the Al-Aqsa Mosque…Palestinian Media Watch has documented the dissemination of this libel for more than a decade. Hamas too has repeated it for years.”

PRESIDENT DONALD  TRUMP _trump12
Settlements Minister Tzipi Hotovely said her ministry will start preparations for Ramat Trump to house 300 families
By JEWISH NEWS REPORTER
June 15, 2020, 9:11 am  1
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu during an official ceremony of the unveiling of the sign of the new settlement, called 'Trump Heights', 
An Israeli cabinet minister has said the government approved plans to build a new settlement in the Israeli Golan Heights named after President Donald Trump.
Israel approves plan to name Golan settlement after President Trump
Settlements Minister Tzipi Hotovely, who is to take over as the next Israeli ambassador to the UK, wrote on Facebook that her ministry will start preparations for Ramat Trump, Hebrew for Trump Heights, to house 300 families.
 
Israel captured the Golan Heights from Syria in the 1967 Six Day War and annexed it in 1981.

Most of the international community considers the move, and Israeli settlements in the territory, illegal under international law.
 
LISTEN to the JN Podcast with Stephen Bush and Ron Arad  
But Mr Trump signed an executive order recognising the strategic mountainous plateau as Israeli territory in March 2019.
 
The move came during a visit to Washington by Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu just weeks before Israeli elections.
 
The decision, just one of several diplomatic moves benefiting Israel, was widely applauded there.
The Israeli government’s approval of the plan, which according to Israeli media will involve earmarking eight million shekels (2.3 million US dollars) for developing the town, advances a project announced by Mr Netanyahu last year with great pomp and fanfare.
 
Last June, Mr Netanyahu convened his Cabinet in the small hamlet of Qela for a vote on rebranding the community as a gesture of appreciation for the president’s recognition of Israeli sovereignty over the Golan Heights.
The small town of Qela is home to under 300 people.
 
Its original neighbourhood of Bruchim, which will be rebranded as Trump Heights, is home to less than a dozen.
At a Cabinet meeting on Sunday, Mr Netanyahu said that Israel would “begin practical steps in establishing the community of Ramat Trump on the Golan Heights, Israel’s sovereignty over which was recognised by President Trump”.
Israel has built dozens of settlements in the Golan over the years, with an estimated 26,000 Jewish settlers living there as of 2019.
Roughly the same number of Arabs live there, most of them members of the Druze sect of Shiite Islam.

Company risks everything to create powerful pro-police ad
Amidst all the anti-police environment in America, the company Egard Watches put out a pro-police ad. It brings a sense of hope during all this chaos.
The way Americans are treating police officers is tragic. Those in the police force dedicate their lives to others. They risk their lives for others. And to be treated the way they are being treated is horrific.
 
 
Speak Truth - A message that needs to be heard
To Be Pro-Police, or not to be?
 
Since when did America become a place where you have to decide if you are pro-police or not? It is irrational to want to dismantle the police force!
Being a police officer can be frightening. You don’t know what or who you will encounter. Yet, these people still choose to join the force.
How dare Americans treat them like animals. How dare Americans want to defund these heroes. It is truly sickening.
A World Without Police Officers?
Who really wants to live in a world without police officers? Do you want to know what that would look like? Policemen and women keep communities safe. They respond to those in need. They are the good guys!
 
 
The world is so flipped right now it is frightening. Criminals are raised as heroes and heroes are treated like dirt; walked upon and spit on. It is a scary world we live in. And it will only be scarier without the men and women who have chosen a career to protect us. Don’t wait around to see what will happen in an America without the police force. It won’t be pretty.
 
Policemen give up their time, their energy, and sometimes their lives. They devote themselves to helping and protecting others. Have some of them made mistakes? Of course. Should some of them never have joined the police force to begin with? Definitely. But does that mean all policemen and women throughout America are bad people? If you think that, it is absolutely absurd. It dishonors those men and women who have dedicated their lives to others. The numbers and statistics do not show that policemen are bad or racist. Taking one horrific incident and blowing it out of proportion is wrong.

Rapper Nissim Black releases music video with basketball star Amar’e Stoudemire
Stoudemire, who currently plays for the Israeli club Maccabi Tel Aviv, features in the video as a medieval knight of sorts alongside Black.
The boundary-breaking Orthodox rapper Nissim Black is back with another catchy new track. But this time, he has a little help from former NBA star Amar’e Stoudemire.
toudemire, who currently plays for the Israeli club Maccabi Tel Aviv, features in the video as a medieval knight of sorts alongside Black.
In the “Games of Thrones”-esque video, the pair ride on horseback across a forested landscape, fighting black clad demon figures with swords. At the end, Black vanquishes one by holding up his hand, where the biblical phrase “I have placed the Lord always before me” appears lighted up, in Hebrew.
After that, he earns the key to a castle that has Hebrew inscriptions above its doorway.
 
Along the way, he compares himself to King David, rapping: “I ain’t catch feelings/ but I got a heart/ I’m like a King David/ I’m playing a harp.”
 
Stoudemire, a former NBA All-Star who now also part-owns the Israeli basketball team Hapoel Jerusalem, said in 2018 that he was converting to Judaism, after many years of identifying with the African Hebrew Israelites — Africans who believe they are descended from the biblical Israelites.
 
In the “Mothaland Bounce” video, Black raps and dances in full haredi Orthodox garb. As he explained to Alma, the video includes three sets of dancers:
 
“The three different groups are three different aspects of me: The African dancers represent the slaves that came here to America, which is our past. And then, you have the street dancers, the urban aspect.”
 
The video depicts these two groups as facing off against each other, representing Black “trying to figure out what I was.” But then, last, the Hasidic dancers show up near the end. “What brought peace for me was Judaism,” Black explains, “So the Hasidic guy, he comes to break up the two things, and he brings shalom. It was all very telling of who I was.”
 
“I’m very shocked at how much [Mothaland Bounce] has been shared, how well received it was. In terms of the Jewish world, it was a big risk he said.

Thousands of obscene anti-Jewish posts shared online, CST report warns
Reams of "easily accessible, extreme and violent" videos, memes and posts discovered across at least four social media platforms.

Screenshot of post featured in the CST report, entitled Hate Fuel: the hidden online world fuelling far right terror
A new report into online extremism has warned that thousands of pieces of violent antisemitic material are being disseminated on social media.
The Community Security Trust (CST) sounded the alarm on reams of “easily accessible, extreme and violent” videos, memes and posts it said were discovered across at least four social media platforms.
The Jewish charity detailed its findings in its latest report entitled Hate Fuel: the hidden online world fuelling far right terror, which it said was shared with police, government and counter-extremism officials.

The document, seen by Jewish News, was not made public due to the extreme nature of the material it contains.
Social media posts found by the Jewish charity included material blaming the Hungarian-American philanthropist George Soros and the wider Jewish community for recent anti-racism protests around the world.
The CST said it produced the report amid concerns over the “quantity and spread” of the material, which it warned poses an urgent threat to Jewish communities.
 
LISTEN to the JN Podcast with Stephen Bush and Ron Arad  
Speaking to Channel 4 on Thursday, Neil Basu, head of Counter Terrorism Policing, voiced concerns about online radicalisation amid the lockdown.
 
“My professional instinct is to tell me that throughout all of Covid, one of my biggest fear is people have been locked down looking at nothing but their screens for over three months now, and there has been an increase in propaganda grievance narratives being twisted online to try and radicalise people who are vulnerable and people have never been more vulnerable,” he told the broadcaster.
 
Meanwhile, the Government’s adviser on extremism announced this week the launch of a legal review to determine whether current legislation adequately deals with hateful extremism. Sir Mark Rowley, the former head of UK counter-terror policing, will put forward proposals later this year.

Commemoration for fallen Jewish servicemen and women to take place online
Community urged to tune in to AJEX's virtual service on Sunday 28 June to mark National Armed Forces week
By JEWISH NEWS REPORTER
June 16, 2020, 12:08 pm  
Jewish Brigade
British Jews are being asked to join an online commemoration service to fallen Jewish servicemen and women next week in place of the usual in-person service at the National Memorial Arboretum in Staffordshire.
 
The Jewish Military Association (AJEX) will hold a virtual service on Sunday 28 June at 11am during National Armed Forces week, with a variety of online interviews and events in the days leading up to the ceremony.
 
This year is filled with notable anniversaries, including the 75th anniversary of VE day and VJ Day and the 80th anniversary of the Battle of Britain, but the pandemic had meant that face-to-face events are impossible.

AJEX said it was “even more determined than ever” to gather together online from home to reflect on the contribution of those who served, as it launched its series interviewing both veterans and serving personnel from Sunday 21 June.
 
AJEX Patron Sir Malcolm Rifkind, a former defense secretary, praised the organisation for its work, saying: “The needs of the many veterans change over the years but the tireless work that AJEX delivers continues to assist them.”
 
 Rifkind will speak at the ceremony, together with Army Chaplain Rabbi Reuben Livingstone, AJEX chair Mike Bluestone, Board of Deputies’ president Marie Van der Zyl, as well as young students.
 
“When we heard the National Memorial Arboretum was closed, we knew we had to create a different kind of event,” said Bluestone. “We look forward to seeing the community coming together for this memorial week which is so vital to help us honour those who have fought for our freedom.”

Famous African Americans admit shocking facts about racism
By Phil Schneider - June 15, 2020 5373 0
Does racism exist in the United States? Or course – it exists in a country with hundreds of millions of people. Is it a major issue today? Well, actually, no. It is not a major issue in comparison to other issues that are much greater issues. For example, are personal responsibility and family values more important than issues of racism? Absolutely.ESTC
The issues today among the young African American population is not systemic racism. This is what so many networks will speak about. But as Roman J. Israel explains, “They are not locking up the 7 year olds.” So, why is this the case? It is because of the breakdown of the family unit in the United States. Is this due to a breakdown of family values in the United States in general? Perhaps. In many big cities today, there are astoundingly high numbers of broken families. This is not due to systemic racism, but due to systemic family breakdown. It is not merely an issue among black people. It is an issue that crosses all races and colors.
 
The next time that someone says that the United States is a racist country, remember the following facts: The northern states in the United States fought against the Confederacy in order to remove slavery from the United States. This was led by a white president. The United States voted into law the Civil Rights Law in order to change the norms of disrespect and discrimination against black people. This was done by a majority of white voters in Congress and the Senate. Oh and yes, it was enforced by a majority of white men in the police departments across the United States. This had ramifications that brought up the norms of respect and openness to the entire world for black people.
 
And one more thing, Barack Obama was elected President of the United States – twice. When the African American population deals with their core issues that start in the home, then there won’t be any need for policemen and policewomen – many of whom are African American – to make sure that neighborhoods are not burned down and looted.
