“Spontaneous” Gaza riots cancelled for this week

5 08 2019

Gaza riots

This is a true story from our “You can’t make this stuff up” department.

The “spontaneous” Friday riots, where we are told that ordinary Gazans just go on their own to protest (usually) Israeli policies, are being cancelled this week.

The reason given by the National Authority for Return and Breaking the Siege, which was published in Hamas newspapers, is because it is the day before Eid al Adha and they wanted their rioters to have a chance to prepare for the holiday.

These riots have been going on every Friday for over a year with casualties on both sides. They are not spontaneous in any way. “Demonstrators” are brought to the area on busses. Even more horrible is the following United Nations finding:

United Nations: Hamas recruits children for terror activity – Special UN report states “children who work for terrorist organizations are exposed to high-level violence and exploitation.” The report detailed the various terrorist organizations which recruit children, including Hamas and Hezbollah. The report confirmed that children in Gaza and Judea and Samaria have been recruited by Islamic Jihad, Hamas and other terrorist groups.

Finally, last Friday a Nazi flag was raised at the Gaza riots. It was not the first time.

Hama swastikaFlag-1

At the weekly Hamas-led March of Return riots, protesters displayed their true nature when they unfurled a large flag with a Nazi Swastika. 

On Friday, approximately 6,000 angry rioters challenged the security fence protecting Israel’s southern border. The rioters used slings to hurl stones at IDF troops as well as firebombs and improvised explosive devices. The soldiers responded with non-lethal riot-dispersal means. the Algemeiner

Ironically, Hamas issued an English language statement opposing the flags. However, their reason was that it hurt their cause, not that they rejected Nazism. Also, that it was “exploited by the Israeli occupation to distort our struggle for freedom and independence.” Right. Hamas is in complete independent control of Gaza and they are responsible for the lack of freedom of their people. Their “struggle” for freedom refers to taking over all of Israel and the genocide of the Jews. It’s in the Hamas Charter.

Understanding Hamas?

16 04 2019

Hamas

What is Hamas? Hamas is the acronym of al-Harakat al-Muqawwama al-Islamiyya—the name of the Islamic Resistance Movement, a Palestinian Sunni-Islamist terror organization that is legally banned by the United States, Canada, the EU and Israel. CUFI

 

The above definition of Hamas by Christians United For Israel rightly explains that Hamas is an acronym for the terror movement’s Arabic name. Why did they specifically choose to end up with Hamas as their name? The answer is in the Bible. The five letter name has a subtle message to Israelis. Even though it is an acronym in Arabic, it forms a real word in Hebrew. What is the word? It is “violence”. Here are a few examples of “hamas” in the Hebrew text. Each use of “violence” is the Hebrew word “hamas”. Try changing “violence” to “hamas” as you read.

The earth also was corrupt before God, and the earth was filled with violence. … And God said to Noah, “The end of all flesh has come before Me, for the earth is filled with violence through them; and behold, I will destroy them with the earth. Genesis 6:11 & 13

The God of my strength, in whom I will trust; My shield and the horn of my salvation,
My stronghold and my refuge; My Savior, You save me from violence. 2 Samuel 22:3

Yehovah tests the righteous, But the wicked and the one who loves violence His soul hates. Psalm 11:5

For they eat the bread of wickedness, and drink the wine of violence. Proverbs 4:17

The violence of the wicked will destroy them, because they refuse to do justice. Proverbs 21:7

Over fifty more verses in the Bible use this Hebrew word and the Hamas terrorists know it well and intended it to intimidate Israel. (Read the list of uses of “violence”.) However, they fail because Yehovah God fights for Israel. When you scan down the list, you see that God will settle accounts with all men who use violence in such a way.

Remember that Yehovah judged the entire planet in Noah’s day. You can be sure that he will judge this present day terror group, and all the terror clones that rule and intimidate with violence.

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem and pray for rain.

In an unprecedented event, hundreds from San Antonio’s Jewish community, joined by Jewish leaders from throughout the US and Israel, celebrated and expressed appreciation for the past four decades of Pastor John and Diana Hagee’s ardent support for the state of Israel, through CUFI, which now has over 5.6 million members.





Annihilation/Elimination of Israel

21 01 2019

annihilate israel - iran

‘We are prepared to eliminate Israel’Iranian air force chief says Tehran regime prepared for ‘decisive battle’ with Jewish state which will lead to its destruction.

Iran’s Khamenei: No Cure for Barbaric Israel but Annihilation

Last week I wrote about an anti-Semitic flyer that was distributed in Newton, Mass. Please do not be naive or ignorant regarding this matter. This is happening around the world, fueled by the direct hatred of Israel, especially from Islam. It is seen in this one of many examples from Islamic literature:

The Day of Judgement will not come about until Muslims fight the Jews, when the Jew will hide behind stones and trees. The stones and trees will say O Muslims, O Abdullah, there is a Jew behind me, come and kill him. Hadith and SahihMuslim#6985  

Although there are multiple interpretations of this verse, it is repeated often by radical Islamic leaders as justification for killing Jews. It is even part of the Hamas Covenant, a designated terror group, at the end of Chapter One Article Seven. It is followed by Article Eight:

“Allah is its goal, the Prophet its model to be followed, the Koran its constitution, Jihad its way, and death for the sake of Allah its loftiest desire.” Hamas Covenant

Islam’s Jew-Hating Hadith in ContextThe infamous hadith about the Jew hiding behind a tree is not some apocryphal canon held in esteem by an unimportant few, but runs parallel to anti-Jewish motifs throughout the Koran.

In addition to the words used in the title, annihilate and eliminate, we can add genocide, eradicated and “total extinction”. Here is a list of statements made about Israel using these words. Just read through a few of the threats and you will clearly see spirit of death that emanates from such hatred.

Yet still, remember that Jesus died for the whole world. All who come to Him as Messiah and Son of God will find life. Many are turning to the living God Yehovah,the Life-Giver; and they are finding deliverance from the death cult of unbelief. Pray that all who love the truth will find it in Yeshua, who Himself is the truth.

Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me. John 14:6

For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved. John 3:16-17

Pray for Muslims and all who hate Israel. Pray for wisdom in Congress as they confront the lying spirit. Pray for rain and pray for the peace of Jerusalem.

Israel Is-Real

16 05 2018

Dry Bones Pal kids

Let’s Get Real! That could be the slogan for moving the US Embassy to Jerusalem, the only capital city the Jews have looked to, for over 3,000 years. NO. OTHER. COUNTRY. HAS. EVER. MADE JERUSALEM. ITS. CAPITAL. CITY.

Reality also needs to be invoked in the Gaza uprising that has consumed most of the media. The nations are ignoring the real history and slamming Israel for the deaths in the Hamas attacks on the Gaza border. They again accuse Israel of killing women and children. Yet, even though Hamas did everything it could, to put women and children in harm’s way, the reality contradicts the propaganda.

Hamas official: 50 of the 62 Gazans killed in border violence were our members – Salah Bardawil’s confirmation means number of acknowledged members of terror groups who died on Monday and Tuesday is now 53 Israel National News

Our local NBC affiliate in Raleigh, NC at 11 PM Monday only showed video of the rioting, but no pictures of the Embassy opening ceremony. Hamas has aimed to destroy Israel for years, nothing new here. But moving our Embassy was a truly historic event, not deemed of any significance at all to WRAL-TV. The only mention was as the motive for Hamas attacking the sovereign border of Israel. Shame on WRAL.

Hamas will fail to destroy the Jews and disappear from history, just as the empires of the Babylonians, Persians, Greeks, Romans and every other empire up to now. This includes the Nazis, Soviets and inevitably Islam. This is not because the Jews are any better people, but because Yehovah God, the God who is a father, the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob made eternal, unconditional promises to Israel. Their very existence after 3,000 years is a miracle testament to God’s faithfulness to His own word.

“Therefore, give the people of Israel this message from the Sovereign Yehovah: I am bringing you back, but not because you deserve it. I am doing it to protect my holy name, on which you brought shame while you were scattered among the nations.” Ezekiel 36:22

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem and pray for rain.

Hamas Thanks North Korea

6 05 2017

Dry Bones Hamas - N Korea

‘Israel will receive a merciless, thousand-fold punishment’ North Korea threatens Israel with ‘thousand-fold punishment’ after Defense Minister Liberman calls Kim Jong-un a ‘madman.’

Hamas thanks North Korea for threatening Israel Hamas welcomes North Korea’s threat against Israel and its support for the Palestinian people.

Because I love Zion, I will not keep still. Because my heart yearns for Jerusalem, I cannot remain silent. I will not stop praying for her until her righteousness shines like the dawn, and her salvation blazes like a burning torch. The nations will see your righteousness. World leaders will be blinded by your glory. And you will be given a new name by Yehovah’s own mouth. Yehovah will hold you in his hand for all to see—a splendid crown in the hand of God. Never again will you be called “The Forsaken City” or “The Desolate Land.” Your new name will be “The City of God’s Delight” and “The Bride of God,” for Yehovah delights in you and will claim you as his bride. Isaiah 62:1-4 NLT

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem!

Amnesty Nails Hamas for War Crimes

28 05 2015

Now here is a refreshing story. In a departure from the usual media anti-Israel narrative, Amnesty International has finally exposed war crimes by Hamas in last summer’s Gaza war.

My good friend Daniel Karvonen, from Mankato, MN. tipped me off to what turns out to be quite a number of reports across media. In contrast to the normal drumbeat accusing Israel this is real news to Western media.

Amnesty accuses Hamas of ‘war crimes’ in Gaza conflict

Islamist militants from Hamas committed war crimes against fellow Palestinians in Gaza – including killings, kidnappings and torture – during the summer 2014 conflict with Israel, Amnesty International said in a report released Wednesday.

The London-based rights group detailed a “brutal campaign of abductions, torture and unlawful killings against Palestinians accused of ‘collaborating’ with Israel” by Hamas, which controls the Gaza Strip.

“In the chaos of the conflict, the de facto Hamas administration granted its security forces free rein to carry out horrific abuses including against people in its custody,” said Amnesty’s Middle East and North Africa director, Philip Luther.

“These spine-chilling actions, some of which amount to war crimes, were designed to exact revenge and spread fear across the Gaza Strip,” he said.

The report, entitled “Strangling Necks“, details the “extrajudicial execution of at least 23 Palestinians and the arrest and torture of dozens of others”. (Latest update : 2015-05-27)

Here are two more reports; one from CNN : Amnesty report says Hamas committed war crimes against Palestinians

and surprisingly, a report from Aljazeera America.: Amnesty finds ‘spine chilling’ Hamas crimes

Still, I have not seen it on TV News, but am glad the report is out there. Israel is always fighting an uphill battle in the propaganda war. We can pray for the truth to come out, but we must also speak up when we have an opportunity. Being a Christina Zionist is not a passive position. Let us speak truth to lies in every situation.

A favorite Scripture verse carries a profound truth and with it the responsibility to verbally declare righteous truth. If we do not, evil voices will prevail. The result will be the destruction of all we hold dear. A great way to be reminded to pray for Israel, for our city and for our country is when you see your digital clock with the numbers 11:11. It happens twice a day, and connects us to Proverbs 11:11. Use it as a boost of memory to pray and speak out loud a blessing.

By the blessing of the upright the city is exalted, But it is overthrown by the mouth of the wicked. Proverbs 11:11

I Joined the Dry Bones Family

17 11 2014

Dry Bones member D14B16_1I just joined the Dry Bones family and you can, too. This has been my favorite Israeli political cartoon since my first visit to Israel in 1984. It was in the Jerusalem Post daily paper. Yaakov Kirschen makes a compelling case for fighting antisemitism with cartoons in what he describes as “a post literate world.” (Click here to join!)

The Problem: Israel is being boycotted, delegitimized, and defamed!! There is now a massive rise in antisemitism world-wide. Support for Christians and Jews in the Middle East has collapsed. Western campuses are hostile to our younger generation. We are shocked and frustrated. The situation is dire, urgent, and obvious, but an effective response seems to elude us.

Let’s Begin:The beginning of an effective response needs to be an understanding of “post literacy”.  This was once a bi-polar world. People were either literate (they could read and write) or they were illiterate (they were unable to read or write). That world is gone. The targets of our messages are now post literate. (they can read and write but they prefer not to). Letter writing has disappeared. Emails beyond a few lines are ignored. Texting, tweeting, and the rise of the Instagram are the evolutionary result of this post literacy.

Dry Bones:The increase in importance of the cartoon is yet another step in this evolution. . . . And, in part, explains the wild popularity of Dry Bones cartoons in the digital world. If you are a Zionist you have probably shared or received Dry Bones cartoons.

We Are The Answer:The time has come to organize and expand the Dry Bones response. We want you to join and support us. Whether you are a young student or a concerned retiree, join us. Whether you are Jewish or not we offer you a way to fight back. Join us. We are the answer. Yaakov Kirschen, Dry Bones
