Title:  "ISRAEL IS AFLAME AND HAS NOT GOT LONG TO LIVE!", Barry Chamesh, renowned Israeli author and speaker, email received November 21, 2000.

Subtitle: "Prepare war!  Stir up the mighty men!  Let all the men of war draw near ... Beat your plowshares into swords and your pruning hooks into spears ...Put in the sickle, for the vintage harvest is ripe ... tread the grapes, for the winepress is full; the vats overflow, for the wickedness of the peoples is great. Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision! For the day of the Lord is near in the valley of decision." [Joel 3:9-14]

Stand by for insights so startling you will never look at the news the same way again.



Deep, dark pessimism reigns supreme in the hearts and minds of the average Israeli citizen today.  They have witnessed their Prime Minister attempt to make the most incredible concessions ever thought possible to the Palestinian leader, Yassir Arafat, at the Camp David summit in late July.  These concessions shocked and frightened most of the Jewish population of Israel, as they offered to give Arafat unprecedented control over unprecedented blocks of land within Israel and even within parts of Jerusalem.  Many thoughtful Israelis wondered aloud if such concessions might not threaten the very existence of modern Israel.

However, instead of accepting the offer of concessions, Arafat arrogantly refused it, and demanded even more.  Even as Israelis were debating as to whether these sweeping concessions should have been given  in the first place, Arafat rejected them as inadequate; you see, he wants all of Israel, and all of Jerusalem!  He wants all the Jews in Israel to "drink seawater", as he is consistently saying.  In other words, Arafat wants nothing more, nor less, than the total annihilation of Israel.  But, given this known fact, Jews within Israel were shocked when Arafat arrogantly rejected Prime Minister Barak's sweeping concessions!

As the Jewish people were digesting how this could possibly happen, Likud Minister Ariel Sharon visited the Temple Mount on September 29, as is the established right of every Jewish citizen.  His visit prompted huge outrage from the Palestinians that raged all during the month of October, and has changed during November into sustained daily attacks on Jewish targets, using a variety of weapons, from stones to rifles.  Arafat boldly threw under-age Palestinian children into the front lines of this "war" [Palestinian quote] so that they would become killed; then, he blatantly blamed the Israeli Defense Forces for the "killing of children".

These Palestinian attacks have become so common and so violent that many Israelis believe war is not only inevitable, but imminent.  As daily battles rage within Israel, other Arab governments have begun to rattle their sabres against Israel, and certain Arab military units have begun to move toward the borders.  Today, we shall attempt to give you a snapshot of the events sweeping the Middle East right now, events that have prompted Jewish author and lecturer, Barry Chamish to declare two things in one sentence:

1.  Israel is on fire from the Palestinian attacks

2.  Israel has not got long to live as a state, as Barry believes the Arabs will be successful this time.



NEWS BRIEF:  "Israel Fears War If Hizbollah Attacks Continue", by Timothy Heritage, Yahoo News, http://dailynews.yahoo.com/h/nm/20001201/wl/mideast_leadall_dc_545.html, December 1, 2000.

"JERUSALEM (Reuters) - Israel has warned Syria that war could erupt if Damascus does not prevent Hizbollah guerrillas from opening another front on the Jewish state's northern border, a senior security source said on Friday. The source accused Damascus, the main power-broker in Lebanon, of encouraging Hizbollah to attack Israeli soldiers from inside Lebanon and said Israel might attack Syrian troops in Lebanon if a recent spate of cross-border raids did not end ... Israel was concerned by the tough line Syrian President Bashar al-Assad had taken against Israel since he came to power after his father's death this year, and by signs of growing ties between Syria and Iraq. He (Bashar) does not only permit Hizbollah to keep fighting us but he encourages it,'' the source said ... Syria has from 20,000 to 30,000 soldiers in Lebanon ..."

In 1997, Syria completed a series of maneuvers in which her army crept up to the border with Israel, using such small incremental steps so that Israel would not be provoked into attacking the Syrian troops.  In the past three years, however, Syrian troops have been right on the border with Israel, ready to launch an immediate attack.  Further, as the first paragraph, above, indicates, the new Syrian president, Bashar al-Assad, who has just recently taken over upon the death of his father, has taken a very hard stand against Israel.  Most assuredly, Syria stands ready to attack Israel once Palestinian leader, Arafat, begins his war against Israel by blowing up the Dome of the Rock. 

In NEWS1056, "The Next Arab-Israeli War", we report a conclusion reached by The U.S. House of Representatives' Task Force On Terrorism And Unconventional Warfare, dated December 10, 1996.  This report tells us that "such nations as Syria, Iran, Iraq, Pakistan, and Egypt are planning and building for a final, devastating war of annihilation against Israel. This includes acquiring nuclear, biological and chemical weapons (NBC) in a mix with conventional weapons, e.g., tanks, aircraft, and soldiers, all in massive, overwhelming numbers." [P. 43]

Therefore, if these nations are planning a coordinated attack on Israel, might we not see certain activity on their behalf against Israel?  Certainly, we should, and certainly we do.


NEWS BRIEF:  "Israel Watching Iraq Troop Movements Toward Jordan Border", World Tribune.com, October 17, 2000, Special Report, http://www.worldtribune.com/index-one-text.html

"TEL AVIV -- Israel is closely watching the movement of Iraqi troops west toward the border with Jordan. So far, Israeli officials said, the government of Prime Minister Ehud Barak will not take any action. The officials said Iraq has sent about 250 tanks and 15,000 troops toward the Jordanian border. Israeli Chief of Staff Lt. Gen. Shaul Mofaz said Israel does not intend to attack the Iraqi armored division. Mofaz said Israel is not interested in turning the incident into a regional conflict."

"In Washington, U.S. Defense Secretary William Cohen again warned Iraqi President Saddam Hussein against attacking his neighbors amid the current Arab-Israeli tension. Cohen said the United States is prepared to respond to the Iraqi troop movement."

Iraq may very well be maneuvering its forces into place on the Jordanian border so they could enter the conflict with Israel quickly.  As you can see from the current CIA Factobook Regional Map, http://www.odci.gov/cia/publications/factbook/geos/jo.html  Iraq must enter any war with Israel by marching through Jordan.  Israel views this possibility with such gravity that she has threatened Iraq with all-out war if she dares attack Jordan.


NEWS BRIEF:  Egyptian Ambassador Leaves", Artuz-7 Internet Daily News, November 21, 2000, http://www.israelnationalnews.com/

"The peace with Egypt, long termed 'cold', just about froze over this morning when Egyptian Foreign Minister Amr Mussa recalled his Ambassador to Israel, Muhammad Bassiouny, for 'consultations'.  Mussa explained that the step was taken after 'Israel increased its use of force against the Palestinians' last night, and in light of the Arab League's call to sever diplomatic relations with Israel three weeks ago.  It is currently not
clear when and if Bassiouny will return.  Israel's Foreign Minister Shlomo Ben-Ami said that this is a 'fairly grave matter' that is likely to harm the 'important function that Egypt plays in the diplomatic process' ... The Foreign Ministry is attempting to make contact with officials in Egypt to discuss the matter, so far with no
success. "

This development is potentially very grave, as recalling an ambassador has historically been the immediate precursor to the outbreak of war between the nations involved.  Egypt has been turning more and more against Israel, even though she is the first major Muslim nation to make a peace treaty with Israel.  President Mubarak is under increasing pressure on his government by radical Islamic Fundamentalists; his government is one of the first ones likely to fall to Islamic extremists when Arafat blows the Dome of the Rock.  Hamas and Palestinian Authority websites both boldly assert that the only reason the combined Arab and Muslim nations have not been able to defeat Israel since 1948 is that they were never united.  Moderate Muslim states have always fatally weakened the combined resolve to annihilate Israel, according to this vein of thinking.  Therefore, Arafat will blow up the Dome of the Rock simply to unite the Muslim world as it has never before been united.  Secular, moderate Arabs the world over will be so enraged by the destruction of the Dome of the Rock, and they will believe Arafat's lie that Israel did it, they will become instantly radicalized.  The moderate Muslim governments that will be the most in danger at this time will be Jordan, Egypt, and Turkey. 

We know that Turkey must fall to the radicals  because it is prophesied to be marching against Israel as part of the Russian-led invasion [Ezekiel 38:6, House of Togarmah].  The present moderate government in Turkey is an ally of Israel, and most certainly would not march against her with Turkish troops.  But, all bets are off once the Dome of the Rock blows up.  The radicals who have been waging conflict for years with the moderate Turkish government will have the instant, overwhelming support of the people and the officers of the army, and they will take over relatively easily and quickly.

Similarly, Egypt will likely fall.  In the Russian-led invasion of Israel in Ezekiel 38-39, the Egyptians are conspicuous by their absence.  They are not listed as part of the invasion force.  Certainly, every Muslim in the world would want to be part of this invasion, because they would reason that Israel would not be able to prevail against Russia herself!  Therefore, why isn't Egypt listed?  I believe it highly likely that they are not listed because their armed forces have been destroyed in the first war against Israel, as her newly radical government went to war once the Dome of the Rock was destroyed.  In coming in to the war against Israel at the time the Palestinians, the Syrians, Jordanians, and Iraqis committed themselves to war, Egypt will be so destroyed that her new government falls.  Months later, when Russia leads the attack against Israel, Egypt will have no army and no centralized government.


NEWS BRIEF:  Arutz-7, 12/5/00, "Palestinian shooting continued in several locations last night: Gilo,
Psagot, Hevron along the Jenin bypass road, towards Bezek base near Jenin, several places in Gaza, etc.  An Israeli was lightly by gunshots near Peduel, outside Ariel; he was treated in a nearby hospital ... Not far away, the IDF uprooted over 200 trees used by terrorists for camouflage."

"An Israeli ambulance was stoned and its front window knocked out on its way to Beit Shemesh.  This was the 45th Israeli ambulance to be stoned by Palestinians since the current violence began.  Palestinian terrorists fired on an Israeli bus near Ma'aleh Levonah this afternoon, while further north, shots were fired on a Shomron Regional Council vehicle near Elon Moreh.  The terrorists fired from behind concrete blocks placed there by the IDF, but missed their target.  Yet another terrorist attack attempt occurred this morning between the Arab village of Otzarin and the Jewish town of Migdalim: Shots were fired on a Nature Reserves Authority car and another Israeli vehicle; no one was hurt, but one vehicle was damaged.  Ariel Jerafi was killed by terrorists there eleven days ago, and another Jewish driver was seriously wounded several days later.  Residents of Migdalim, between Tapuach and the Jordan Valley, held a demonstration there last week, but were told by an army officer that it is safe to travel along the route."

NEWS BRIEF:  "Palestinians Attempt To Overrun Rachel's Tomb", Arutz-7, December 4, 2000.  "An hour-long battle raged last night at Rachel's Tomb in Bethlehem between dozens of Palestinians and an IDF force.  The Arabs attempted to approach the holy site - reaching within tens of meters thereof - but were repelled by the soldiers.  Israel Air Force helicopters attacked Palestinian targets in the area.  Army Radio reported today, in the name of a senior military source, that this was the fiercest Palestinian attack against Israeli security forces since the beginning of the current wave of violence.  Voice of Israel Radio did not report on the battle."

"Further north, on the Jericho by-pass road, a roadside bomb exploded near a passing Egged bus; no one was hurt.  Arabs fired on Psagot, N'vei Tzuf, Beit Haggai, and on a bus north of Ofrah; the IDF returned fire in most of the cases.  A soldier was lightly injured by shrapnel during Palestinian gunfire on an IDF outpost in Gaza ... Around noon, between Chomesh and Shavei Shomron, an Israeli car was heavily damaged by gunfire; the occupants were unhurt.  Earlier, the security coordinator of the north-Shomron town of Avnei Hefetz - east of Tulkarm and Netanya - was fired upon by Palestinians today near Shavei Shomron.  He was miraculously unhurt in this, the eighth such attack in the area in recent weeks.  An IDF patrol was similarly attacked further north, near Kadim; no one was hurt."

NEWS BRIEF:  "A Stabbing And A Near-Lynching", Arutz-7, December 3, 2000.  "A Palestinian terrorist assaulted and stabbed an Israeli man in his neck at the A-Ram junction in northern Jerusalem this afternoon; he is listed in serious condition.  Soldiers shot at the attacker, but did not catch him - and he in fact was able to wound another Israeli during his escape. Earlier, in the same location, an Israeli truck was set afire, after Palestinian rioters attacked it with rocks; the driver ran away in fear of his life, and the Arabs then burnt the truck.  A similar event almost occurred at the Kalkilye bypass road; Arabs attacked a truck with rocks, but the driver drove away with no injuries. Palestinian violence yesterday and last night:  Two soldiers were moderately hurt in Hevron; earlier in the day, Arab shots were fired at a group of Jewish children there - no one was hurt.  Gunfire was opened on Psagot, Adurayim Base south of Hevron, IDF positions near Kalkilyeh and Beit Haggai - the army responded in the latter case with tank shells - and elsewhere."

NEWS BRIEF:  "Fortifying Israeli Towns", Arutz-7, November 26, 2000.  "The violence of the past two months - particularly that which originated in the Israeli-Arab villages - has left its mark all over the country, and the defense establishment wishes to ensure that the lessons are learned.  The army has prepared a list of 43 towns, all well within Israel's pre-1967 borders, that require extra fortifications and defenses.  The extra
measures include extra military protection during the night hours, fences, and observation points. The list is a manifestation of the defense establishment's conclusion that the Israeli-Arab sector is an element that endangers the nearby Jewish population.  Criteria for inclusion on the list of security-needy towns include: isolation from other Jewish towns but within 1.5 kms of an Arab town; vulnerability to light-weapons fire; and danger of being cut off during times of violence."

This latest development is exceedingly serious, as it seems to set the stage for the fulfillment of the Obadiah destruction of the House of Esau Arab.  Western governments generally, and Israel particularly, would never carry out a complete annihilation of an enemy population if any of their own citizens were residing within the targeted towns.  Therefore, just before an annihilation would occur, the Israeli Defense Force would have to physically separate their own people from the Palestinians. 

To put this situation another way, when you see such a physical separation occurring, you must take this as a definite sign that the annihilation is about to occur.  Since I was very sure that no American news source would report such an occurrence, I subscribed to several Jewish news organizations, and receive their news, either electronically or in newspaper delivered to my home.

In NEWS1434, I reported that the IDF was physically separating the Arab cities from the Jewish, and closing the roads that link them.  Now, we see that the IDF is carrying out specific actions to separate Jews from Israeli-Arabs.  All the Arab targeted population centers seem now to be physically separated from Jewish citizens, so that the annihilation by "fire" [Obadiah 18] may commence.

If you know of any Christian missionaries in these communities, please warn them to get out.  If you have any loved ones in these Arab communities, warn them to get out.  I do not believe it will be long before this unprecedented attack on the Arabs will begin.  Then, the unthinkable, and the historically unprecedented annihilation of 3 million people will occur. 

Even though this event will  fulfill God's Judgment pronounced upon the Arab 2,500 years ago, this does not mean the current Illuminist Jewish leaders will escape.  God's pattern of Judgment is that, after He uses one nation as a military weapon to bring about physical judgment upon another, God then turns upon that nation He just used, to bring her into judgment.  The judgment of Israel's leaders and all citizens who do not believe in Jesus Christ, is found in Zechariah:  "And in all the land [Israel], says the Lord, two-thirds shall be cut off [killed] and perish, but one-third shall be left alive.  And I will bring the third part through the fire, and will test them as gold is tested.  They shall call upon my name, and I will hear and answer them.  I will say, 'It is My people'; and they will say, 'The Lord is my God'." [Zechariah 13:8-9]  

The identity of these one-third of the Jewish people is given in the Book of Revelation 12:6-16, when God personally protects the one-third of the Jewish people who believe in Jesus Christ by that time in the Tribulation Period.  Thus, when Jesus Christ returns, He returns to a Christian Israel, as it is prophesied in Zechariah:  "And I will pour out upon the house of David and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem the Spirit of grace and supplication.  And they shall look earnestly upon Me, whom they have pierced, and shall mourn for Him as one mourns for His only son ..." [Zechariah 12:10]

THIS is the ultimate Israel God is going to produce.  And, He is using the fires of judgment and of trial to produce such a result.  THIS is the Israel for which Christians should pray.

Now, let us get back to the non-stop, daily violence within Israel, Arab against Jew, so you can see why Barry Chamesh, and much of the Jewish citizenry, believe Israel is aflame and has not got long to live.

NEWS BRIEF:  "Non-Stop Violence", Arutz-7, 11/17/00.  "Palestinian fire resumed last night, and continued this morning as well, against the Jewish homes in Hevron.  Hevron spokesmen said that the army
was responding, 'but not effectively enough to stop the daily attacks'.  Palestinians also shot over the night at IDF outposts near N'vei Dekalim in Gaza, and in many other locations.  A roadside bomb, aimed at two IDF vehicles in Gaza, was detonated, but caused no injuries."

"A bus was ambushed by five Arabs this morning near Tira, an Israeli-Arab town in the Sharon region, not far from the PA cities of Tulkarm and Kalkilyeh.  The driver was injured and taken to the hospital for treatment.Three buses and a mattress factory belonging to Arabs suspected of collaborating with Israel were burnt and destroyed in Gaza over the night." In other words, Arabs were attacking Arabs suspected of working with Israel, or being too friendly with Israelis.  This is an old practice amongst Arabs.

NEWS BRIEF:  "Rioting and Terrorism", Arutz-7, 11/16/00.  "Palestinian rioting started a bit early today, and disturbances were registered this morning near N'vei Dekalim, Rafiach, and Ayosh Junction.  After Palestinian fire was directed last night at Jewish homes in Hevron, Psagot, Rachel's tomb, and several other locations, Palestinians blocked A-Tor junction in eastern Jerusalem this morning by burning tires."

"Terrorism, too, resumed early this morning.  In an imaginative attempt to murder Israelis, a group of ten terrorists burst out of a sand truck - one of many that the soldiers were allowing to pass and unload their cargo - and opened fire; the soldiers returned fire, and hit at least two of the terrorists...  A civilian convoy from Netzarim in Gaza was attacked with gunfire this morning, just as two explosives blew up as it passed near the Karni checkpoint.  Miraculously, no one was hurt in the two-pronged attack, although a jeep was damaged...  An Israeli car on the Jenin by-pass road in northern Samaria was shot at by a Palestinian car that pulled out to pass it; a soldier in the attacked car shot in the air; the terrorists escaped...  An Israeli was lightly injured when terrorists shot at his car outside Einav, near Kalkilye; nine bullets hit his car... An ambulance on its way to Eli, north of Shilo, was stoned and damaged by Arabs.  Arabs in eastern Jerusalem shot at Israeli Border Guard troops near a police station there.  Along the Israel-Lebanon border, a roadside explosive was detonated as an IDF patrol passed by ..."

NEWS BRIEF:  "Violence Continues", Arutz-7, 11/9/00.  "Palestinians shot at Israelis in Psagot, Elisha, Givat Ha'antena near Ariel, Kadim, near El Bireh, and several Gush Katif outposts last night.  Near Rafiah, the Palestinians used anti-tank shells for the first time.  There was massive PLO fire at Israeli forces near Rachel's Tomb, in response to which Israeli tanks shot several shells at Beit Sachur, near Bethlehem.  An attempted drive-by terrorist shooting at an Israeli car on the Tapuach-Shilo road ended with no casualties. Heavy fire from several directions was opened simultaneously at an IDF patrol in the Rafiah area this morning.  No one was hurt.  There were exchanges of fire in N'vei Dekalim and Kfar Darom as well."

Note:  the Palestinian 'Police Force' is not supposed to have possession of heavy military weapons like anti-tank shells. The fact that they have them is proof positive that Arafat has blatantly violated his agreements with the Israelis in the Oslo Peace Accord. We have run several articles in the past four years in which we reported that the Israeli government was allowing Arafat to arm his 40,000 man 'Police Force' with heavy military weapons.  At that time, we asked "why would Israel allow Arafat to so violate the Oslo Accords when the only possibly outcome can be dead Israelis.  The answer, and the only one that makes sense, is that Oslo Peace Accords were a very clever trap set by the Illuminati and the Illuminist governments of Clinton and of Israel, in which the Arabs would be tempted into attacking, thus allowing Israel to annihilate the Palestinians, and destroy the governments of Syria, Egypt, and Jordan.  

This terrible result would fulfill several Bible prophecies, as outlined in NEWS1419, "What Prophetic Time Is It?"  Events as they are proceeding convince us even more that we are absolutely correct.

NEWS BRIEF:  "A Dozen Shootings:  Army's Reaction Dwindling", Arutz-7, 11/5/00.  "Residents in Hevron, where Palestinians shot throughout the night at Jewish homes, and near other flashpoints say they have the distinct impression that the army has "descended a step or two" in their response.  Soldiers reacting to violence near Yad Ya'ir were instructed to "shoot at the wall" and to "shoot such that no one is killed."  Palestinians also fired at Beit Haggai, Elisha near Jericho, Kadim and Ganim near Jenin, the Dotan Junction
army base, and at IDF forces near Ariel, Susia, and Kalkilye.  No one was hurt.  In addition, shots were fired at an Israeli car near Ramallah, and at IDF forces in Gaza and near the Egyptian border."

Once again, something about this entire situation does not make any sense.  Why would the Israeli Defense Force instruct its soldiers to not shoot directly at Palestinians who are shooting at them and at Jewish citizens?  After all, the main duty of the solider is to protect the lives and property of fellow-citizens.  This idea that they shoot at things other than the Palestinians shooting at Jewish targets makes no sense, on the surface, that is.  But, if the objective is to encourage the Palestinians to increase their attacks, because they think Israel has turned soft and weak, then these instructions make sense.  I believe this is exactly what the Israeli government is attempting to accomplish.  The Arabs will be more likely to take the bait if they think the IDF is weak, divided, and suddenly impotent.  Once the Arabs attack in full force, Israeli high-tech weaponry will annihilate them completely.  This is the Plan.

NEWS BRIEF:  "Palestinians Not Only Abuse Medical Privileges, But Attack Ambulances", Arutz-7, November 6, 2000.  "The International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) recently released the
following announcement: 'The ICRC is gravely concerned with the allegations expressed [by] the Israel Defense Forces, regarding the Palestine Red Crescent Society's (PRCS) involvement in shooting incidents.  The ICRC acknowledges the PRCS' stern denial of these allegations, and underlines the positive co-operation between itself, the PRCS and Maden [sic] David Adom (MDA) in executing their vital humanitarian tasks.  The abuse, or public allegations of abuse, of medical installations and vehicles endanger all medical, life-saving operations.  All medical personnel, vehicles and installations, enjoy special protection under the Geneva Conventions."

In response, the IDF released a list of instances in which the Palestinians were using their ambulances to carry out live fire against Israeli targets.  The IDF listed five such occurrences from October 22-31.  At the beginning, IDF forces were caught off guard, as they did not expect Palestinian forces to be inside Arab Red Crescent ambulances.  One can only think back to the crass use of ambulances slavishly covered with Red Cross symbols by the Nazis as they carried out their Holocaust against the Jews.  The Nazis would entice a Jewish victim into an ambulance emblazoned with the Red Cross, a symbol they trusted.  They would not realize that the ambulance had been specially retrofitted so that the back was fully enclosed, so that gas could be fed into the back, killing the victims while the driver and attendant were not affected.  Later, in the Holocaust camps, ambulances were used to entice anyone to enter who exhibited special fear; once inside, the victim(s) would be met by a Nazi SS dressed in the white garb of a doctor, further allaying their fears.  The doctor would tell the victims that they were being taken for a special examination.  The SS officer was even known to chat amiably with the victims on their way to the death room.

The Palestinian's use of ambulances as platforms from which to shoot at Israelis is no less despicable.

NEWS BRIEF:  "Today's Scorecard", Arutz-7, November 5, 2000.  "A Yitzhar motorist was shot upon late today, but was not hurt...  A six-year old boy from the Shomron community of Kadim was wounded by a
firebomb and rocks thrown at his family car on the Jenin by-pass road ... A Bezeq phone company repairman was attacked by a mob of Arabs in the eastern Jerusalem neighborhood of Ras el-Amoud this afternoon ... Earlier this morning, an Arab mob rioted at the Erez Checkpoint in the Gaza Strip ... Five or six Palestinians, from the Palestinian village of Nachlin ... ran up towards [Jewish] Beitar this afternoon, shot into the town, and ran back down.  Eyewitnesses reported that the army, units of which had left the area on Thursday, arrived on the scene about 15 minutes later."

"Following a night of heavy shooting between Arab terrorists and Israeli soldiers [in Hevron], a small group of Israeli patrol soldiers mistakenly entered the Arafat-controlled section of the city shortly after 2 PM. ... Uniformed Palestinians began shooting at the group, which was able to escape quickly to the Israeli side of the city without injuries ... For the second time in two days, the Palestinians falsely reported a killing by IDF soldiers.  Yesterday, the Palestinians claimed that a child was killed by tear gas during the course of an Israeli dispersal of a demonstration.  The IDF examination of events showed that the child was brought to the hospital early yesterday morning - before the demonstrations.  This afternoon, the Palestinians claimed that IDF soldiers in Gaza killed one of their number; the IDF explained, after investigating the incident, that a would-be infiltrator into Israeli territory was indeed shot in the leg, but was only wounded.  The IDF calls on the Palestinian Authority to desist from false reporting, and to implement the agreements reached at Sharm el-Sheikh."

Wars and rumors of wars are, indeed, swirling through Israel today, are they not?

NEWS BRIEF:  "Palestinian Attacks Increase Hourly", Arutz-7, November 3, 2000.  "Palestinians shot at Israeli targets in at least four places today:  At Shdemah, south of Jerusalem, at Mt. Eval near Shechem, in Hevron, and near Tulkarm; two of these occurred in the last hour.  In addition, there were many incidents of Palestinian rioting and violence against IDF forces throughout Judea and Samaria, including at the Ayosh Junction and near Tulkarm.  In Hevron, 1,000 Arabs rioted (see below), and two clashes erupted in Gaza. An IDF convoy traveling along the Israeli-Egyptian border was shot upon today.  The soldiers returned fire; no one was hurt.  Last night, too, the Palestinians continued their offensive:  Among other violence, a grenade was thrown at a Border Guard post in Ras el-Amoud, and an Israeli motorist was shot in the leg in a drive-by terrorist shooting near Ma'aleh Ephraim."

How would we feel if we were experiencing "drive-by shootings" in our neighborhoods?

NEWS BRIEF:  "Brutal Palestinian Murders", Arutz-7, October 30, 2000.  "One Israeli was murdered, and another is in very serious condition, after they were shot in the head around noon today by a Palestinian terrorist ... The terrorist attack occurred as the two, wearing bulletproof vests, were serving as guards at a National Insurance Institute building in east Jerusalem." 

"Maryk Gavrielov, whose body was found two days ago near Ramallah, was brutally murdered in the same type of mob-lynching as were the two soldiers three weeks ago.  HaKol MeHashetach News Agency reported today that three Tanzim agents forcibly removed Gavrielov from the Ramallah restaurant in which he was dining at approximately 11 PM Friday night.  They took him to an area outside the Ramallah Post Office, where a Palestinian mob tortured him and shot him with dozens of bullets.  The lights in the area were turned off and photographers were banished.  Gavrielov's corpse was mutilated, then burnt."

How would you feel if you could be abducted while eating dinner in a restaurant, then taken to a dark area to be brutally beaten, and then murdered?  This is the situation facing Israelites in Israel today.

"Yet another mutilated body - tied up and with multiple stabbing wounds - was found today in the Beit Jala-Gilo area ... He was later identified as Amos Machluf, 30, who was last seen on Friday night when he left his home in the southern Jerusalem neighborhood of Gilo to take out the garbage."  Now, taking out your garbage in Israel can get you killed!

"Last night saw several intense gun battles and many isolated Palestinian shootings throughout Yesha.  Bullets hit at least three homes in Psagot, and Palestinians engaged Israeli soldiers in long shooting matches at the
Ayosh Junction and near Shechem.  They shot at the Ofer Base near Ramallah, at IDF checkpoints near Hevron and Kalkilye, at an IDF force on Mt. Gerizim near Shechem, and at the town of Vered Yericho and near other Yesha towns."

"An IDF officer was lightly wounded this morning when a roadside bomb was detonated as an Israeli jeep patrolled along the Israeli-Egyptian border near Rafiah.  This was the sixth such bomb that has exploded in the area in the past few weeks." 

NEWS BRIEF:  "Police Suspect Another Lynch", by Arutz-7, November 29, 2000. "Maryk Gavrielov, 25, of Moshav Bnei Ayish near Ashdod, has been identified as the victim of what was apparently another Arab lynch of an Israeli lost in a Palestinian area ... Gavrielov, who set out from his home on Friday, lost his way and mistakenly entered the Ramallah area, or was brought there by force, where he was brutally killed ...  The mutilated, bullet-riddled, and burnt body was found yesterday morning near Ramallah. Police forensic investigators could identify the body only with the help of dental records." 

NEWS BRIEF:  "Intense Palestinian Violence In Gaza", Ibid.  "Hundreds of Palestinians rioted violently at the Karni Crossing in Gaza, and did not allow Israeli convoys of civilian vehicles to leave or enter Netzarim.  The army brought in tanks in an effort to quell the uprising.  Heavy fire was directed at IDF soldiers at one point; some of the attackers were clearly identified as PA policemen ... Earlier, three firebombs had been hurled at Jewish targets near N'vei Dekalim ... Palestinians shot at IDF targets at the Ayosh Junction from within nearby buildings."

NEWS BRIEF:  "Tracking The War of Attrition", Arutz-7, October 24, 2000.  "Palestinian violence and attacks continued today with the usual mix of firebombs, rocks, and live fire at IDF targets.  Shots were fired this morning at an army position near Mt. Gerizim south of Shechem ... a firebomb was thrown by Arabs towards an army jeep near Kfar Darom in Gaza; the IDF shot back, and the Palestinians then began rioting and throwing rocks and bricks.  Firebombs were similarly thrown at IDF soldiers in Hevron and Erez Checkpoint ... soldiers shot back ...  The Tunnels Highway between Jerusalem and Gush Etzion was again closed late this afternoon, after Palestinians fired at passing vehicles ... Palestinians again fired from Beit Jala, near Bethlehem ... damage was caused to a Gilo building.  IDF tanks retaliated with two mortar shells and machine gun fire...  Six Border Guard policemen and an IDF officer were hurt in stoning and firebombing incidents, including four policemen who were struck by a firebomb near the Rockefeller Museum in Jerusalem...  A roadside bomb exploded at 7:30 PM near a convoy of Israeli cars leaving Netzarim last night...  Arab-fired bullets penetrated houses in the north-Shomron community of Kadim and in Hevron ... Also last night, Palestinians once again rained heavy gunfire on the town of Psagot ... Bullets penetrated one house ..."  

NEWS BRIEF:  "Ancient Jericho Synagogue Set Ablaze By Palestinians", Arutz-7, October 13, 2000.  "A mob of Palestinian Arabs from Jericho set the ancient "Shalom Al Yisrael" synagogue on fire last night, and the wood structure was burnt to the ground. Palestinians prevented Israeli fire trucks from putting out the

NEWS BRIEF:  "Two Israeli Soldiers Lynched In Ramallah", Arutz-7, October 12.  "... two soldiers, on their way back to their army base in or near Beit El after a short furlough from their reserves duty, were brutally lynched by a wild mob of Arabs.  Palestinian sources falsely reported that they were undercover agents.  The Israelis entered the city by mistake, and were detained by the Palestinian police.  After they were brought to the police station in central Ramallah, a crowd of between 1,000 and 2,000 Arabs broke into the building, overcame the police, and murderously beat and killed the Israelis.  Some of the Palestinian police took part in the lynch.  The body of one of the Israelis was dragged around the city chained to a car.  Television pictures show Arabs in the window of the station, alternately beating and stabbing someone inside and gleefully making a V sign out the window ..."

I saw a television clip of this brutal murder, and the Arabs certainly looked "wild" to me.  I was shocked when I saw the picture of one of the attackers proudly showing off the Jewish blood on both his hands.  This report continues:  "The soldiers were viciously beaten all over their bodies.  Military officials who handled the bodies told Arutz-7 that they were 'deliberately tortured and abused...  The bodies were mutilated and torn to pieces.  There was great difficulty in recognizing them...' AS WE GO TO PRESS:  Communications Minister Binyamin Ben-Eliezer confirmed that three Israeli soldiers, and not two, were killed by Palestinians today: One was killed before his comrades reached the police station in Ramallah, and the other two were lynched by the Arab mobs."

NEWS BRIEF:  "Arabs Burn Joseph's Tomb", Arutz-7, October 8, 2000.  "Early yesterday morning, the government ordered the army to retreat from Joseph's Tomb in Shechem.  An agreement had been reached with Palestinian Authority officials there, but the latter proved unable - or unwilling - to keep their end of the agreement.  A mob of Arabs ransacked the holy site ... and then burnt it down, and even took apart the stone dome marking the grave of the Biblical Joseph.  Even Oslo-architect Shimon Peres had criticism last night for Arafat and the behavior of the Palestinians in Shechem.  Peres said, 'The Palestinians made a terrible mistake in Joseph's Tomb.  They pulled the rug out from under their feet regarding their demand for control of the holy places, by showing that they don't know how to preserve and respect them'."

This "agreement" referred to in the paragraph, above, was that the Israeli government had reached an agreement with Arafat that he would use the Palestinian Police to keep the Palestinians from doing any damage to Joseph's Tomb, one of the most revered of all Jewish sites.  The Palestinian Authority did nothing of the kind; their police just stood by and watched the Palestinians destroy and burn the tomb.  This reason is why Shimon Peres, of all people, actually criticized the Palestinians!  Peres is one of the writers of the Oslo Accords, and has been extremely reluctant in the past to criticize Arafat or his Palestinian Authority.

When Arafat blows up the Dome of the Rock, he can claim the Jews did it in retaliation for this destruction of Joseph's Tomb.

NEWS BRIEF:  "What Happened In The End?", Arutz-7, October 6, 2000.  "After the Moslem prayer service on the Mount, hundreds of Arabs on their way out launched an offensive against Israel's Lion's Gate police station 100 meters from the east side of the Mount ... it was burnt down by the Arabs, who came close to killing eight policemen inside.  Faced by a hail of bricks, bottles, and metal objects, the Israeli
policemen locked the doors; the Arabs then surrounded the building and threw in burning rags and a tear-gas grenade.  With fire and tear-gas on the inside, and Arab mobs beating on the structure from the outside, the
policemen radioed for help.  Back-up forces arrived, shot their way into the station, and found two policemen unconscious; the other six were suffering from breathing difficulties.  They retreated 20-40 meters away from the area, and journalists filmed Palestinian Arabs proudly standing next to the burnt police station ... The Arabs began the attack on the police station by throwing bricks, bottles, and metal objects, while shouting, 'Continue on Until Jaffa, Haifa, and Tel Aviv!' and 'Death to the Jews!' " 

"The Moslem sermon on the Temple Mount today included the following supplications: "We want the battle against the enemy to be orderly.  We want dead amidst the enemy.  We want to kill and not be killed.  We must fight guerilla warfare."

These three statements clearly reveal the true intent of the Palestinians against the Jews.  They want nothing less than the complete annihilation of the Jew, and the utter destruction of the State of Israel.  They evidently are not aware of the End Times prophecy found in Joel 3:2, 7: "I will gather all nations and will bring them down into the Valley of Jehoshaphat, and there will I deal with them for their treatment of My people, and of My heritage Israel ... and will return your deed of retaliation upon your own head." [Parallel Bible, KJV/Amplified Bible Commentary].

God was uttering this warning after He declared, in verse 1 of chapter 3, that He would restore Israel back to her land; we know this happened uniquely in history in 1948.  Therefore, the fulfillment of this passage is today, in this modern age.  The stage seems set for the fulfillment of the prophecy of Obadiah 15-18 against the House of Esau, which is the modern-day Palestinians.  God takes this kind of destruction and violence against His Jews very personally, as events are soon to prove.

NEWS BRIEF:  "Heavy Violence At Other Flash Points", Ibid. "In the Gush Katif area of Gaza, large riots are underway at three different locations.  Mobs of Arabs - estimated at between 6,000 and 10,000 rioters - are lined along the fences of the Jewish community of N'vei Dekalim, throwing firebombs and stones ... At the Netzarim junction, 1,000 Arabs are gathered, firing occasional gunshots at the IDF outpost, and throwing firebombs ... A third and new venue of rioting is at Nisanit in northern Gaza, where hundreds of Arabs are participating ... Riots and violence are taking place in several other places throughout Judea and Samaria, and journalists on the scene report that it is feared that it will only get worse by the end of the day."

NEWS BRIEF:  "Burning Down Israel's Forests", Ibid.  "Large forest fires continues to rage near Nataf, in the green hills west of Jerusalem.  Tens of fire-fighters are on the scene.  The same firemen spent the night putting out another fire near the Beit-Iksa Arab Village, just west of Jerusalem's Ramot neighborhood.  Jewish National Fund spokesman said today that all of the forest fires over the past few days were cases
of Arab arson."

NEWS BRIEF:  "Israeli-Arab Violence Hits Like Thunder", Artuz-7, October 4, 2000.  "Gershon Adani, a 35-year-old father of two, from the Galilee town of Oshrah near Acre, described what happened to him yesterday: 'I was on my way home, when suddenly I was stopped by a mob of Israeli-Arabs.  They were stopping all the drivers, and asking to see their papers.  They let the Arab drivers go, but not the Jewish ones.  I started to tell them that I was their neighbor, and have lived here among them for years, etc., but they began pelting me with bricks, rocks, and anything else...  I ran into the car, locked the door shut, and somehow was able to get through the roadblock.  I was hurt very badly.  I got to a police checkpoint, but they couldn't help me because the ambulance was not able to get through the Arab roadblock'."

Tens of thousands of Jewish citizens are today shocked beyond belief by this sudden turn of events.  They cannot believe their Israeli-Arab neighbors are attacking them, as Gershon Adani admitted, above.  They cannot believe the Palestinians are really and truly attacking Jews and Jewish targets, exactly as the Israeli Right Wing has been warning for years.  Since Prime Minister Rabin and his cohort, Shimon Peres, began the Oslo Peace Accords about 8 years ago, the Israeli Leftists believed that the Palestinians would live peaceably with the Jew once the government gave them the concessions they were seeking.  Without the support of these tens of thousands of Leftist utopian Jewish dreamers, the Oslo Peace Process would never have gone forward.

Now, however, the eyes of these Jewish citizens have been opened wide.  After Prime Minister Barak gave Arafat nearly 100% of what he was seeking, the Palestinians launch an attack unprecedented in scope and in ferocity.  Finally, the Israeli Leftist knows exactly what attitude and emotion resides in the heart of the Palestinian.  As we report in NEWS1411, Arafat cannot go back to the negotiating table, because he has alienated the support of these Leftist Jewish citizens.  The citizenry of Israel now has hardened its attitude to the point where they would absolutely not support any future "peace" agreement with Arafat.  Further, this same reality would force any future prime minister to not give any significant new concessions to Arafat.  In fact, today, as Prime Minister Barak fights for his political life, his political opposition is talking increasingly loudly about taking back the concessions Barak made at Camp David this past Summer.  Arafat must go on to war now, because he has no support within the Israeli population for any further "peace talks".

NEWS BRIEF:  "Arabs Attack Israeli Police As Likud Visits Temple Mount", Arutz-7, 2000.  "The Temple Mount is quiet but tense.  Police are poised at the Mugrabi Gate, next to the Western Wall, in case Arabs attack again.  Dozens of officers were hurt this morning when Arabs hurled large stones at them.  The police were escorting Likud Knesset members on a visit led by Likud Party Chairman Ariel Sharon.  Party spokesman Ofir Akounis says the visit was a statement to show that the Likud would retain control of the
Mount;  'every Jew has the right to pray there'.  Chief of Police Yehuda Wilk says that it was important to let Sharon ascend the Mount to show that there is free access to all.  Police say they'll ensure the safety of any
Knesset member - Jew or Arab - who wants to visit.  Indeed, three Arab Knesset members were present on the Mount this morning. The Temple Mount compound is administered by the Moslem Waqf, and Sharon said today that he saw how the Waqf construction has permanently damaged ancient Jewish archaeological finds.  Jerusalem district commander Yair Yitzhaki says police tried to prevent violence by talking with the Waqf beforehand, but they were not interested."

"Sharon told reporters, 'I came here as one who believes in coexistence between Jews and Arabs.  I believe that we can build and develop together.  This was a peaceful visit.  Is it an instigation for Israeli Jews to come to the Jewish People's holiest site?  The provocations came, unfortunately, from the other side, to a large degree in answer to incitement by Arab Knesset members'.  The Likud's MK Reuven Rivlin says, 'Today's incident proves that they don't want a single Jew in Jerusalem, or a single Jew anywhere in Israel'.  After visiting the Mount, Sharon said a chapter of Psalms at the Western Wall."

Mr. Rivlin is correct, and Ariel Sharon knew this before he went to the Temple Mount:  the Arabs do not want to live peaceably --- to coexist -- with the Jew.  Rather, the Arabs want a total annihilation of the Jews and the utter destruction of the State of Israel.  If you do not believe me, just go to any of the Arab sites, read enough of their articles, and you will see that they do, indeed, want to annihilate the Jew and take over the land for their own.  The Palestinian website is: http://www.palestine-info.com/index_e.htm.  The Hamas website is at:  http://www.palestine-info.com/hamas/index.htm

Thus, Israel is on fire from forest fires, fire bombs, and deliberate Arab arson.  Israeli citizens are being attacked in their homes, and the Israeli Defense Forces are being fired upon by military weapons which Arafat obtained illegally, in defiance of the agreements he signed as part of the Oslo Peace Accords.  Most of the country seems to be engulfed in violence, war, rumors of war, and death every single day since October 28, 2000, when Sharon visited the Temple Mount.

Now, can you see why Jewish author, Barry Chamesh can make the statement, "Israel is aflame and has not got long to live"?  This pessimistic assessment must be the predominate one in Israel today.  Secular Jews can see no way out but war, bloodshed, and must perhaps, defeat this time.  Orthodox Jews, on the other hand, believe the many of God's promises to "Latter Day" Israel of protection against enemies, and of an expansion out to include all the land God promised Abraham. [Read CE1054, "Modern Day Israel's Miraculous Rebirth", and NEWS2107, "Arabs Beware:  You Have Embarked Upon Mission Impossible", for full details on this wonderful subject].

We Christians need to pray for the Peace of Jerusalem [Psalm 122:6], and for God to be glorified through the truly miraculous deliverance of tiny Israel [6 million people] as they successfully defeat 1.5 billion Muslims.  If the Muslims can annihilate the Jew, and throw Israel out of her land, then the God of the Holy Bible is false and everyone of us who have faith in Jesus Christ, are proven to be "of all men most miserable". Further, our hope in the Rapture of the Church is gone, if Israel can be defeated.  Finally, Jesus Christ then cannot be depended upon to come again the second time.  And, our eternity in Heaven would then be in serious doubt, if Israel can be defeated and thrown out of her land.

This reality is exactly the seriousness of the situation facing Israel right now.  Everyone must be in much prayer.  Truly, the End of the Age is upon us.  Are you spiritually ready? Is your family? Are you adequately protecting your loved ones? This is the reason for this ministry, to enable you to first understand the peril facing you, and then help you develop strategies to warn and protect your loved ones. Once you have been thoroughly trained, you can also use your knowledge as a means to open the door of discussion with an unsaved person. I have been able to use it many times, and have seen people come to Jesus Christ as a result. These perilous times are also a time when we can reach many souls for Jesus Christ, making an eternal difference.

If you have accepted Jesus Christ as your personal Savior, but have been very lukewarm in your spiritual walk with Him, you need to immediately ask Him for forgiveness and for renewal. He will instantly forgive you, and fill your heart with the joy of the Holy Spirit. Then, you need to begin a daily walk of prayer and personal Bible Study.

If you have never accepted Jesus Christ as Savior, but have come to realize His reality and the approaching End of the Age, and want to accept His FREE Gift of Eternal Life, you can also do so now, in the privacy of your home. Once you accept Him as Savior, you are spiritually Born Again, and are as assured of Heaven as if you were already there. Then, you can rest assured that the Kingdom of Antichrist will not touch you spiritually.

If you would like to become Born Again, turn to our Salvation Page now.

We hope you have been blessed by this ministry, which seeks to educate and warn people, so that they can see the coming New World Order -- Kingdom of Antichrist -- in their daily news.

Finally, we would love to hear from you.

God bless you.
