Syria Enters Golan on Israel’s Northern Border
United Nations peacekeeping forces have supervised the buffer zone and
ceasefire between Israel and Syria since 1974, after Syria and Egypt
launched a joint surprise attack against Israel now called the 1973 Yom
A map of Israel showing the Golan Heights in the north, and Egypt
and the Gaza Strip in the south. Israel is surrounded by a sea of
hostile neighbors, many of whom are committed to her destruction.
Since Saturday, more than 150 rockets have been fired at Israel and 124 of the rockets launched from the Gaza Strip have hit southern Israel.
On Saturday, four Israeli soldiers were injured when an antitank missile was fired at an IDF border patrol on the Gaza Strip.
On Monday morning, this Netivot home was hit by a Gazan rocket.
After Israel retaliated, targeting sites in Gaza, a steady stream of rockets have been fired into Israel over cities like Ashkelon, Ashdod, Eshkol, Sderot, Shaar Hanegev and Netivot.
Several were injured on Sunday. Israelis who live near the Gaza Strip have been warned to remain within 15 seconds of shelters and not go into open areas.
“The firing has been relentless today. As far as Israel is concerned, Hamas is responsible for the rocket-fire and all other attempts to harm our soldiers and civilians [from Gaza], even when other groups participate. And it is Hamas that will pay the heavy price; a price that will be painful,” Defense Minister Ehud Barak said.
One girl interviewed on Israeli television last night, who immigrated to Israel a few years ago from South Africa said, “It’s not normal. I can’t attend school like a normal child. Half the time, I’m just scared.”

Meanwhile, Iranian ambassador, Ali Asghar Soltanieh, Iran’s emissary to the UN’s nuclear watchdog agency, the International Atomic Energy Agency, recently said that Iran will go to Finland next month to participate in an international conference for the establishment of a nuclear-free zone in the Middle East.
Such participation is darkly comical to say the least, since Iran seems to have every intention on building a nuclear bomb, and openly threatens the existence of the Jewish People in their Biblical homeland of Israel.

was interviewed on Channel 2 in Israel.
Palestinians Demonstrate After Abbas Shows Openness to Two-State Solution
“I will bring back my exiled people Israel; they will rebuild the ruined cities and live in them.” (Amos 9:14)
Any hint of cooperation on the part of Palestinian Authority leader Mahmoud Abbas with the peace process seems only to add fuel to the fire of the Palestinian claim for the right of return to property abandoned in Israel in 1948.
Last week, Abbas created an uproar in the Palestinian community after he said during an interview on Israel’s Channel 2 that he would never return to live in his hometown of Safed in the north of Israel.
“I visited Safed once before,” he said, “I want to see Safed. It’s my right to see it, but not to live there.”
Safed (Tzfat), the highest city in the Galilee, is one of Judaism’s four holy
cities, along with Jerusalem, Tiberias and Hebron.
Referring to what some call the pre-1967 border, he said, “Palestine now for me is ’67 borders, with East Jerusalem as its capital. This is now and forever … This is Palestine for me. I am a refugee, but I am living in Ramallah. I believe that the West Bank and Gaza is Palestine and the other parts are Israel.”
Palestinians interpreted his comments as waiving the right of return to Israel, which sparked widespread protest.
In the Palestinian territories and abroad, about five million Palestinians are registered as refugees, even though current estimates suggest only 30,000 to 50,000 actual refugees are alive today.
In response, some called the episode a failure of leadership while others labeled him an outright traitor. Many Palestinians burned photos of him during demonstrations.
Abbas’ comments, however, brought strong words of support from Israel’s president, Shimon Peres.
Although previous discussions have always assumed a 1967-Armistice-Lines (Green Lines) border, within the context of a two-state solution, the rabid response of the Palestinian public to Abbas’ comments reveals that their true intention is to take back all of Israeli territory by flooding it with Palestinian “refugees,” and erase the Jewish state altogether.
The Lebanese television station Al-Manar aired a story about Judd
Hashisho who has donated money he saved for a year to fund terrorism
against Israel. His efforts were warmly received by Hezbollah.
Lebanese Boy Funds Hezbollah
“Now learn this lesson from the fig tree: As soon as its twigs get tender and its leaves come out, you know that summer is near. Even so, when you see all these things, you know that it is near, right at the door.” (Matthew 24: 32 – 33)
An eight-year-old Lebanese boy from Sidon named Judd Hashisho has become a local star of late after he donated his savings to fund terrorism.
The youth sent a letter to Hezbollah Secretary-General Sheikh Hassan Nasrallah that included money he had been saving since last year’s anniversary celebration of Israel’s withdrawal of forces from southern Lebanon.
Hashisho said he wants the money to be used to purchase a drone similar to the one allegedly used by Iran recently to violate Israel airspace.
“I want to give this money to the resistance so it can buy weapons to fight Israel the b**ch,” he wrote.
“When I grow up, I will be a communist resistance warrior with Hezbollah, fighting the United States and Israel, I will tear them to pieces and drive them out of Lebanon, the Golan and Palestine, which I love very dearly.”
Hashisho’s letter received a warm response from Nasrallah.
“My dear Judd. I thank you for your love of the resistance and Hezbollah and for your contribution. I wish for the great Allah to help you thrive so that you grow to be a resistance fighter against the occupation and the protector of justice, if Allah so wishes. With love and respect.”
Sadly, this is but one more example in a string of others that highlight how Arab culture is training its youth to hate and despise Israel, as well as the US and all western nations.
This cultivation of hatred and terror does not bode well for the future of the peace process in the Middle East and is a definite sign of the end times in which we live.
“Tell the Israelites to bring me an offering. You are to receive the offering for me from each man whose heart prompts him to give.” (Exodus 25:2)
