Topic # 1   Israel Fed Up With US Settlement Demands

A senior Israeli government official on Monday said Jerusalem is “fed up” with the Obama Administration’s exaggerated focus on the construction of Jewish homes in Judea, Samaria and eastern Jerusalem. US President Obama and Secretary of State Clinton have become almost hostile when demanding that Israel halt the growth of Jewish neighborhoods in any areas claimed by the Palestinians. Israeli PM Netanyahu responded by saying you cannot simply freeze the normal flow of life in Jewish neighborhoods that have been established for decades. (Israel Today) “Like one who seizes a dog by the ears is a passer-by who meddles in a quarrel not his own.” Prov. 26:17

The United States, the last holdout, has joined the rest of the world in demanding that Israel stop all building and growth in Judea and Samaria; a demand that extends to east Jerusalem.  Now ALL the nations of the world are shouting to Israel with one voice: “Get out of the Land!” or “Divide the Land!” The fulfillment of Joel 3:2 is imminent. (John Fisk)

I (YAHWEH) will gather all nations, and will bring them down into the valley of Jehoshaphat, and will plead with them there for my people and for my heritage Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations, and parted my land.  Joel 3:2

Topic # 2   Sarkozy: Burqas Not Welcome In France

French President Nicolas Sarkozy lashed out Monday at the practice of wearing the Muslim burqa, insisting the full-body religious gown is a sign of the “debasement” of women. “In our country, we cannot accept that women be prisoners behind a screen, cut off from all social life, deprived of all identity,” Sarkozy said. “The burqa is not a religious sign, it’s a sign of subservience. I want to say it solemnly,” he continued, “it will not be welcome on the territory of the French Republic.” (Jerusalem Post)

Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have summoned you by name; you are mine. When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you…For I am Yahweh your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Savior. I gave Egypt for your ransom…Since you were precious in My sight, you have been honored, and I have loved you; therefore I will give men for you, and people for your life. Fear not, for I am with you…           Isaiah 43:1-5a
