Last week’s news Letter generated various responses. The article about divorce and remarriage received some good reviews. I did not give you the link last week so I do so now for those who could not access the article. http://www.sightedmoonnl.com/?page_id=646

But I was really expecting a great deal of debate about the chronology that I showed you about the time of the judges. This is new and bound to be controversial. But again nothing was said.

What was said was about the Edomites and the poor Palestinians. We have had some lengthy discussion over this.

One person wrote in to say that ‘I do worry about the Palestinians getting the supplies they need in Gaza.
Did God not say He loved these people also? We shall answer this today.

Then on Monday I was sent the following Youtube of Michael Rood being shot at on the very same road I have traveled on many times and taken brethren on. http://www.michaelroodministries.com/michael_shot.html?utm_source=A+Rood+Awakening%21+List&utm_campaign=5277bbdff1-Monday_Rood_Review6_7&utm_medium=email I was on this road with Nehemiah Gordon at Passover and he showed me the many sniper placements where the snipers had a clear shot at the driver for an extended period of time. Many people were killed along here during the intifada.

Brethren I have been encouraging you to return home to Israel; and that this year of 2010 is the year to do it. You have seen just how hated the Jews are around the world with the recent events surrounding Gaza. And now this shot at Michael Rood. I tell you this not to scare you, but so that you are fully aware of what is going on. We are entering the stage when Brethren will be martyred. It is my understanding some of this will take place during this current Sabbatical cycle and more so towards the end of it. I have written on this before and I think I will do so again very soon. But for now I want to show you who it is that hates Judah and the ten Tribes of Israel and those of us who keep Torah, and then what is to happen to them. Please take note the conclusions can only happen when Israel has returned home.

I would like to share this one article first which can be read at http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2010/06/03/AR2010060304287.html

Those troublesome Jews
Charles Krauthammer
Friday, June 4, 2010
The world is outraged at Israel’s blockade of Gaza. Turkey denounces its illegality, inhumanity, barbarity, etc. The usual U.N. suspects, Third World and European, join in. The Obama administration dithers.

But as Leslie Gelb, former president of the Council on Foreign Relations, writes, the blockade is not just perfectly rational, it is perfectly legal. Gaza under Hamas is a self-declared enemy of Israel — a declaration backed up by more than 4,000 rockets fired at Israeli civilian territory. Yet having pledged itself to unceasing belligerency, Hamas claims victimhood when Israel imposes a blockade to prevent Hamas from arming itself with still more rockets.

In World War II, with full international legality, the United States blockaded Germany and Japan. And during the October 1962 missile crisis, we blockaded (”quarantined”) Cuba. Arms-bearing Russian ships headed to Cuba turned back because the Soviets knew that the U.S. Navy would either board them or sink them. Yet Israel is accused of international criminality for doing precisely what John Kennedy did: impose a naval blockade to prevent a hostile state from acquiring lethal weaponry.

But first before I begin this week, please watch this speech by Prime Minister Netanyahu at the UN. Watch all four sections. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=44HkjBDQz_k&feature=related This is an excellent speech.

Brethren let us look again and see why these things are the way they are. Why do the Arab nations have such a hatred for the Jews?

We begin first in Genesis 27 after Jacob had deceived his father Isaac into blessing him : 38 And Ěsaw said to his father, “Have you only one blessing, my father? Bless me, me too, O my father!” And Ěsaw lifted up his voice and wept. 39 And Yitsḥaq his father answered and said to him, “See, your dwelling is of the fatness of the earth, and of the dew of the heavens from above. 40 And by your sword you are to live, and serve your brother. And it shall be, when you grow restless, that you shall break his yoke from your neck.” 41 And Ěsaw hated Ya‛aqoḇ because of the blessing with which his father blessed him, and Ěsaw said in his heart, “The days of mourning for my father draw near, then I am going to kill my brother Ya‛aqoḇ.”

Esau is going to live by the sword and also notice that Esau will break the yoke of Jacob from his neck. This is to happen the last days. Indeed it is already happening.

This week’s teaching come from an unknown author and it is going to show you in great detail who all these Muslim nations are and who they have descended from and how they came into being.

What kind of man is the Arab? He is a composite of IshmaEl & Esau, “He shall be a wild man (also described as an ass or donkey); his hand shall be against every man, and every man’s hand against him. And he shall dwell in the presence of all his brethren… By your sword you shall live, and you shall serve your brother [Israel]; and it shall come to pass, when you become restless, that you shall break his yoke from your neck (Genesis 16:11-13 & Genesis 27:40)”

And what will be the end of those who do not repent of this evil hatred?

“The house of Jacob shall be a fire and the house of Joseph a flame, but the house of Esau shall be stubble; they shall kindle them and burn them and consume them, and there shall be no more survivor of the house of Esau, for the Lord has spoken it.”
The leading rabbis of today teach that the Palestinians are the modern-day descendents of the House of Esau! These Palestinians live in both Edom, a province of Jordan, and within Israel under the leadership of Hamas!

“Thus says Yahweh: “For three transgressions of Edom, and for four, I will not turn away its punishment, Because he pursued his brother with the sword, And cast off all pity; His anger tore perpetually, And he kept his wrath forever (Amos 1:11).”

“For the Day of Yahweh is near upon all the nations. As you have done, it shall be done to you; your dealings will return upon your own head. For as you have drunk upon the mountain of My holiness [desecrating it in the wild revelry of the destroyers] so shall all the nations drink continually [in turn, of My wrath]; yes, they shall drink, talk foolishly, and swallow down [the full measure of punishment] and they shall be [destroyed] as though they had not been.

But on Mount Zion [in Jerusalem] there shall be deliverance [for those who escape], and it shall be holy; and the House of Jacob shall possess its [own former] possessions. The House of Jacob shall be a fire, and the house of Joseph a flame (this is going to happen when Israel is unified), but the House of Esau shall be stubble; they shall kindle and burn them and consume them, and there shall be no survivor of the House of Esau, for Yahweh has spoken it.”

Far too many people think Yahovah is a peace loving liberal god who is forever forgiving those who want to do evil. It is high time they all wake up and realize that Yahovah is going to cause genocide upon the Arab peoples unless they repent. And it is going to be inflicted upon them by the two houses of Israel once they have been joined back together. This is one of the reasons we have to return back to our homeland and it also the reason Judah must help us to come home now.

Please read this entire article. I am going to copy it here for you. I also want you to notice when you read it that those hated are the Jews, Netzarim and Christians. The Netzarim are those who keep Torah and Follow Yahshua. They were never Christians, but were lumped in with them over time.

“The Madness of Ishmael”
“He shall be a wild man; his hand shall be against every man, and every man’s hand against him. And he shall dwell in the presence of all his brethren. (Genesis 16:12)”

In his first inaugural address, the 32nd President of the United States, Franklin Delenore Roosevelt preached a stern message to the American people, “[T]he only thing we have to fear is fear itself—nameless, unreasoning, unjustified terror which paralyzes needed efforts to convert retreat into advance.”

Patrick J. Buchanan, a syndicated columnist who is the founder and editor of The American Conservative, recently made this observation, “In 25 years, militant Islam has seized three countries: Iran, Sudan, and Afghanistan. We toppled the Taliban almost without losing a man. Sudan is a failed state. In Iran, a generation has grown up that knows nothing of Savak or the Great Satan but enough about the mullahs to have rejected them in back-to-back landslides. The Iranian Revolution has reached Thermidor.

Wherever Islamism takes power, it fails. Like Marxism, it does not work.”

I want to show you why we as Believers in Messiah have nothing to fear.

There is a line of sinister relay that hands down the doctrine of hatred in the religion of Islam. When we hear the term militant Islam it is a redundancy. Islam by its very nature is evil and militant. It is the religion of Arab supremacy. The Islamic teachers of the late nineteenth century were very much aware of the West with its religious, moral and political movements and ideas. Some, like the Egyptian Mohammad Abduh, knew of the European intellectual revolution but opposed what he saw as the negative character of the West. At Al-Azhar in Cairo, the oldest Islamic university in the world, outlasting its competitors in Damascus and Baghdad, scholars had debated what the Western encroachment meant to Islam. There an anti-Western movement began with a complex figure called Jamal al-Din, often known as Al-Afghani, who taught in Egypt, was exiled to Paris, and eventually died in Constantinople in 1897. He called on Muslims to resist the West, to turn the West’s own weapons and techniques against it.

One of Jamal al-Din most devoted supporters was Muhammad Abduh. Abduh’s work was continued by his pupil, a Syrian called Rashid Rida. He in turn became a powerful influence on Hasan al-Banna, who founded the Muslim Brotherhood in 1928.

The Muslim Brotherhood developed a set of doctrines that called for carrying out an Islamic Revolution against the West. And let it be understood by West, they mean the European Jews and their Zionist (Christian) friends. Anyone that opposes the Islamic Revolution is part of the Zionist Conspiracy.

“Only by controlling the state and all of its power can [we] put true Islam back to the center of social and political life,” Al-Banna said.

Meanwhile in the West, the promotion of the idea of a superior White Aryan super race became the foundation of Adolph Hitler’s National Socialist (Nazi) Party. By 1933, they gained control over the government of Germany, and a few years later this revolutionary ideology turned its attention to the extermination of all remnants of Israel everywhere and was the driving force behind Hitler’s plans of world domination. Fortunately Nazi Germany imploded in 1945, but not in time to save 52 million people who died in the war, to include six million Jews in holocaust genocide.

Al-Banna was a devout admirer of Adolph Hitler and wrote to him frequently. So enamored was Al-Banna with Adolph Hitler’s National Socialists Party that in the 1930s Al-Banna and the Muslim Brotherhood became the secret official intelligence arm of the Nazis in the Middle East. The Arab’s had several things in common with the Nazis: they both hated Jews; they both hated democracy; and they both hated the Western culture. It became the official policy of the Third Reich to secretly develop the Muslim Brotherhood as the “fifth parliament”, to capture the Middle East for the Third Reich.

Understanding Hitler’s mandate for the youth, Al-Banna formed “a youth club with its main focus on moral and social reform through communication, information and propaganda.”

With the onset of World War II, the Muslim Brotherhood officially promised in writing that they would assist and incorporate with General Rommel securing that no Allied Forces, especially English or American soldiers, were left alive in the Middle East.

The Muslim Brotherhood who was originally based in Cairo began to expand its scope of influence during World War II. In 1940 there were more than 500 branches in Egypt, which had risen to 5,000 by the end of the war in 1945 throughout the Middle East.

They first crept into the Land of Israel, then called Palestine by the British, headed by the racist Grand Mufti of Jerusalem, Mohammed Amin al-Husseini (1895-1974), who was an associate of Al-Banna and who became an Arab Nazis Spy. He was also Yassir Arafat’s mentor, the latter calling him uncle. Overlooking his Semite heritage, the Grand Mufti, went to Germany and was schooled in modern espionage and terrorism by the international SS division of the Nazis. Based in Muslim Croatia the Palestine Liberation Organization was originally called the Handzar Muslim Division, but it was to become the core of Hitler’s new army of Arab fascist terrorists hoping to conquer the Arabian Peninsula, Africa and all the Middle East.

By the end of World War II, the Muslim Brotherhood was wanted by the International War Tribunal for “crimes against humanity.” The British Secret Service captured in Cairo all the German Nazi Intelligence advisers. However, as the British Secret Service captured their Muslim terrorist counterparts, the Muslim Brotherhood, instead of prosecuting them the British Secret Service hired them. They secretly brought all the fugitive Nazi war criminals of Arab and Muslim descent into their holdings in the Middle East, and for three years trained them on a special mission, the destruction of the infant state of Israel in 1948.

The French Intelligence Service, who had captured the Grand Mufti as he fled crumbling Germany into France, cooperated by releasing to the British Secret Service the Grand Mufti and smuggling him to Egypt to head from 1945 to 1948 the mission to destroy Israel. Baruch HaShem Yahweh, they failed!

As the British Secret Service lost influence in the Middle East in the 1950s they sold their Arab spy operation to what would become the CIA of the United States. The U.S. was interested in using the Muslim Brotherhood as a counterweight to the Soviet backed Pan Arabian Baath communists (The political party of Assed in Syria and Hussein in Iraq.).

When the Baathists took over Egypt under General Gamel Abdel-Nasser, the Muslim Brotherhood was ordered out of Egypt or be exterminated.

The Muslim Brotherhood most notable preacher was Sayyid Qutb both a scholar and a prolific author. He wrote his last and arguably his greatest work in prison in the 1960s. He became one of the leading figures in the Muslim Brotherhood. When he was hanged on the orders of the Nasser Egyptian government, he turned into a martyr in the eyes of his supporters.

He in turn inspired a younger Egyptian, Abd al-Salem Faraj, who suffered the same fate as his mentor, Qutb; in 1979 he had founded a group called the Society for the Holy War (Jamaat al-Jihad), usually known simply as Al-Jihad. On October 6, 1981, Al-Jihad succeeded in killing the president of Egypt, General Nasser’s protégé Anwar Sadat, whom they called Pharaoh. As they publicly declared, “I have killed Pharaoh and I do not fear death…We have to make the Rule of Allah’s Religion in our own country first, and to make the Word of Allah supreme … there is no doubt that the first battlefield for jihad is the extermination of these infidel leaders [like Sadat] and to replace them by a complete Islamic Order. From there we should start.” One of Faraj’s assistants was a young physician named Dr. Ayman Al-Zawahiri who would become Osama bin-Laden’s right hand man.

The CIA then evacuated much of the Muslim Brotherhood in the 1950s to our friends in Saudi Arabia. As they arrived, the Saudi royals hired some of the Nazi indoctrinated Muslim Brotherhood religious leaders, like Dr Abdullah Azzam, as teachers in the “Madrassas,” (Islamic religious schools) combining Nazism with the extreme doctrines of the Islamic cult of Wahhabism (A puritanical Muslim sect founded in Arabia in the 18th century by Muhammad ibn-Abdul Wahhab {the pure} and revived by ibn-Saud in the 20th century), an arm of the Hashishin (Assassins) sect. The Saudi tribes in Arabia only practiced Wahhabism.

Originally Islam saw the Wahhabi Hashishin as a threat and the Jews as a useful evil. Islam enjoyed, with a few exceptions, good relationships with the Jews for the first thousand years of its existence. The Wahhabi cult was condemned as a heresy by most of Islam for centuries. But then the U.S. found oil in Arabia and we needed one tribe to deal with, we backed the Wahhabi Saudis.

That secured cheap oil and that bought a lot of silence.

The Saudis got wealthy, and became the rulers in charge of the new country of Saudi Arabia, keepers of the so-called Holy Places of Mecca and Medina. The Saudi government are Wahabbist involved in a devil’s deal with the Wahhabi Islamic clergy for decades, letting them have full control over Saudi society through roving enforcement bands of thugs armed with canes who would beat women wearing “indecent” (western) clothing or walking without male relatives, or anyone at all who acted in any way that the Wahhabis thought violated their interpretation of proper behavior. The Wahhabists have also been given billions of dollars to export their version of Islam around the world, both to Islamic and non-Islamic nations. In exchange for this, the Wahhabists have turned a blind eye to the decadence and sins of the members of the Saudi Royals. Because Saudi Arabia provided a new home for the fascist Muslim Brotherhood they have not tried to overthrow the Saudis. Fascism and Hashishin extremism mingled in the Madrassas. It was in one of these Schools that Dr Abdullah Azzam made a promising young disciple, Osama bin Laden who was a Wahhabi Muslim.

Holy War in Afghanistan
In 1979, the Soviet Union invaded Afghanistan. The Soviet Union fulfilling the Russian agenda of Peter the Great struck fear in the hearts of the West, especially the U.S. Peter the Great said, “Do all in your power in approach closely Constantinople (Istanbul) and India. Remember that he who rules over these countries is the real sovereign of the world. Keep up continued wars with Turkey and with Persia (Iraq, Iran and Afghanistan). Establish dockyards in the Black Sea. Gradually obtain the command of this sea, as well as of the Baltic. This is necessary for the entire success of our projects. Hasten the fall of Persia. Open for yourselves a route towards the Persian Gulf. Re-establish, as much as possible, by means of Syria, the ancient commerce of the Levant, and thus advance towards India. Once there, you will not require English gold… Russia profiting by this decisive moment will inundate Germany with the troops, which she will have assembled beforehand. At the same time, two fleets full of soldiers will have the Baltic and the Black Sea–will advance along the Mediterranean and the Ocean, keeping France in check with one, and Germany with the other. And these two countries conquered, the remainder of the Europe will fall under our yoke.”

The United States and her Allies informed the Saudis that we would fund the Muslim Brotherhood if the Saudis would bring them together and ship them off to Afghanistan to fight the Russian Soviets. Because of its Nazi past being too well known, the Allies renamed the Muslim Brotherhood fighters Maktab al-Khadamat al-Mujahidin, (Office of Services for the Army of the Lord) the MAK.
Al-Mujahidin drove the Soviets out of Afghanistan and they won the war in 1989. This caused Dr. Azzam and his assistant, Osama bin Laden, to rise to some prominence. Feeling victory, the U.S. left this army of Arab fascists in the middle of Afghanistan.

In the ten years that the Muslim Brotherhood was out of Saudi Arabia it had grown quite influential in the West and didn’t want the Muslim Brotherhood back in the country. The Saudi Royals began paying bribes of 300 million dollars a year to Osama bin Laden and his followers in the Muslim Brotherhood to stay out of Saudi Arabia.

In a move to secure the position as “Old Man of the Mountain,” Dr. Azzam was mysteriously assassinated, by Osama bin Laden himself. The most radical of the Arab fascist religious extremists, Osama bin Laden, called his organization “Al-Qa’ida” (the Foundation). Osama bin Laden chose as his second-in-command, Dr. Ayman Al-Zawahiri, who came from the Egyptian branch of the Muslim Brotherhood.

There are many cults and branches, but they are all part of the Muslim Brotherhood, which is part of the Hashishin. The one in Israel is known as Harakat al-Muqawamah al-Islamiyyah (”Islamic Resistance Movement”) or simply Hamas (Arabic for ‘courage’) but it is actually a secret chapter of the Muslim Brotherhood. When Israel shot and killed Sheik Ahmed Yassin in March 22, 2004, the Muslim Brotherhood published his obituary in a Cairo newspaper in Arabic and revealed that he was actually the secret spiritual leader of the Muslim Brotherhood and a member of the Hashishin in Gaza.

Tax Deductible Terrorism
The Saudis Royals found out a way to finance the Hashishin without spending their fortunes. They set up charities in the U.S. like the Holy Land Fund of Richardson, Texas. These charities finance the Muslim Brotherhood, Hamas, Hizballah, Al-Qa’ida all part of the Hashishin and in turn the Saudis are getting tax deductions by the US Government for terrorism.

Two professors at the University of South Florida oversaw all this: Khalil Shikaki, a Palestinian professor of political science, who was the world head of the Islamic Jihad (An Iranian-sponsored Palestinian terrorist organization.) (He has since left the U.S. and is now in Syria); his assistant, Kuwaiti-born and educated in Egypt, Dr Sami Al-Arian, associate professor of computer science and engineering, employed at the University of South Florida.

On November 20, 1995 Federal agents searched Dr Sami Al-Arian’s office and his home at the University of South Florida. University of South Florida places Dr Al-Arian on paid leave, effective August 7, 1995 pending the outcome of a federal investigation into whether he was running fronts for terrorist organizations. The university lets him return two years later, citing a staffing need and no law enforcement action.

Professor Al-Arian went on stage in Cleveland where he said, “Now, who will give me $500 to kill a Jew? There are people standing by in Jerusalem who will go out in the street and stab a Jew with a knife, but we need $500.” And he said, “All of this money will go to the Islamic Committee for Palestine,” which is the front group in the United States for the Palestinian Islamic Jihad.

Professor Al-Arian appears on Fox News Channel’s “The O’Reilly Factor,” on September 26 2001 where he is asked about tapes from the late 1980s and early 1990s in which he said “Death to Israel” in Arabic. He said, “I’m a prisoner because of the hysteria engulfing this country in the aftermath of the 9/11 tragedy.”

At 10:15 PM on March 20, 2002 the U.S. Government launched Operation Green Quest, and raided on all the Saudi charities in homes and businesses, and in one hour shut down the entire Saudi terrorist finance network in the U.S.

By August 15, 2002, due to the work of John Loftus a former US Justice Department prosecutor, 40 of the top trial lawyers in America filed the largest class-action lawsuit in American history in the Federal District Court in Washington, DC, asking for one trillion dollars’ damages against the Saudis on behalf of everyone who died on September 11 2001.

Professor Al-Arian was arrested at 5:30 AM on February 20, 2003 in a 50-count indictment. In a press conference, U.S. Attorney General John Ashcroft highlighted the violence of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad he says Al-Arian helped fund. He said, “The Palestinian Islamic Jihad is one of the most violent terrorist organizations in the world…The Palestinian Islamic Jihad is responsible for the murder of over 100 people in Israel and the occupied territories, including at least two Americans: Alisa Flatow, age 20, and Shoshana Ben-Yishai, age 16… Our message to them and others like them is clear,” Attorney General Ashcroft said. “We make no distinction between those who carry out terrorist attacks and those who knowingly finance, manage and supervise terrorist organizations. ”

In Cleveland, the Plain Dealer reported that Fawaz Damra, imam of the Islamic Center of Cleveland, is an unindicted co-conspirator who introduced Mr. Al-Arian at the controversial speech in 1991 where he and Al-Arian made anti-Semitic slurs at the event.

Professor Al-Arian was tried on 17 federal charges from June 6 to Dec. 6, 2005 accused of conspiring to raise money for the violent acts of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad in Israel. The former University of South Florida professor was acquitted of eight counts and the jury hung on the remaining nine, saying there wasn’t enough evidence to convict him. No matter what, he will still be deported after an immigration hearing.

Over the years we have learned that many former Nazis were on the CIA payroll but the CIA didn’t know they were Nazis because the British Intelligence Service under Kim Philby, the Soviet communist double agent, had lied to them. Our State Department swept all this under the rug allowing the Nazis to stay in the U.S until the Nazi hunters came along to expose them.

Well, now we are reaping the benefits of allowing Nazis in the Middle East to live. Al-Qa’ida did not simply spring up on its own; it sprang from the evil root of the Hashishin with Nazis engrafts. With this injection into the Hashishin to give it resurgence Arab terrorists are more evil than ever. Now the Hashishin is nothing more than the religious expression of Nazis Arab fascism.

Fascism in Iran
Totally catching the West off guard, the fire-brand Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad on Wednesday, December 14, 2005, called the extermination of 6 million Jews during World War II a “myth,” and saying the Jewish State should be moved as far away as Alaska or Canada. “”They have created a myth in the name of the Holocaust and consider it above Allah, religion, and the prophets. If someone were to deny the existence of God… they would not bother him. However, if someone were to deny the myth of the Jews’ massacre, all the Zionist mouthpieces and the governments subservient to the Zionists tear their larynxes and scream against the person as much as they can…Our proposal is this: give a piece of your land in Europe, the United States, Canada or Alaska so [the Jews] can create their own state,” he said.

This brought the usual reaction from European and American officials, who, with Churchillian rage and power, called these statements “unacceptable.” “Ya think!” How could any sane person deny that six million documented Jews in Europe were killed by Hitler’s Nazi Regime? The widely cited “6 million” figure is derived from the initial 1945 Nuremberg trial estimate of 5.7 million deaths; subsequent censuses, statistical analyses, and other demographic studies of European Jewry have consistently demonstrated the essential accuracy of this first tally. After nearly 50 years of study, historians agree that approximately 6 million Jews perished during the course of the Nazi genocide.

I will tell you could deny the Holocaust, an Arab Nazi could. “They have created a myth in the name of the Holocaust and consider it above Allah, religion and the prophets,” President Ahmadinejad proclaimed in supreme arrogance of someone comfortable in his hate. The speech was broadcast live on state television. President Ahmadinejad, a former Revolutionary Guardsman and US Embassy kidnapper, who was elected president by a landslide in June 2005, in October 2005, he presided at a “World Without Zionism” conference. Banners called for Israel to be “wiped off the map.” The use of English to display the slogans belied the explanation that such rhetoric was meant for internal consumption only. In a speech there he called Israel a “disgraceful blot,” a cancerous “tumor” which must be “wiped off the map”, provoking a diplomatic storm. “It’s really shocking that a head of state who has a seat in the United Nations can say such things. “This calls our attention to the real danger of that regime having an atomic bomb,” Jose Manuel Barroso, president of the European Commission, the executive body of the European Union said.

Curiously, the Iranian President’s remarks in the Iranian city of Zahedan are just a repeat of his remarks he made at the Conference of Islamic Nations in Saudi Arabia last week, where he unveiled his solution for the Jewish Question, “Since Europeans established Israel out of guilt over the Nazi campaign, the country should be carved out of Europe.” Wonder why our so-called partners in Saudi Arabia didn’t inform the US of this Arab Fascist.

Muslim Brotherhood chief Mohammed Mahdi Akef recently wrote: “Western democracies have slammed all those who don’t see eye to eye with the Zionists regarding the myth of the Holocaust.”

Mark Regev, spokesman for the Israeli Foreign Ministry, told reporters after reading the speech: “The combination of extremist ideology, a warped understanding of reality and nuclear weapons is a combination that no one in the international community can accept.”

“Iran is planning a conference to assess the scale of the Holocaust,” said Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Hamid Reza Asefi. He did not say when or where the conference would be held. He went on to say, “It is a strange world … It is possible to discuss everything but the Holocaust… there are unanswered questions about the scale of Holocaust which Europeans should answer.”
On October 25, 2005, the Frankfurt Book Fair had informed the Public Prosecutor’s office in Frankfurt that complaints have were made against Iranian exhibitors at this years Frankfurt Book Fair. According to information provided by visitors at the Book Fair, Iranian Exhibit presented by Iranian publishers included books and brochures that were anti-Semitic and glorified violence.

Exactly four years before President Ahmadinejad’s Holocaust-denial, Expediency Council Chairman ‘Ali Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani took the podium at Tehran University to deliver the Friday sermon, which is understood to be the official weekly policy statement of the Iranian government, “If one day, the Islamic world is also equipped with weapons like those that Israel possesses now, then the imperialists’ strategy will reach a standstill because the use of even one nuclear bomb inside Israel will destroy everything… It is not irrational to contemplate such an eventuality.”

In a televised address back on October 24, 2000, then Iranian President Mohammad Khatami declared, “In the Qur’an, Allah has commanded us to kill the wicked and those who do not see the rights of the oppressed… If we abide by human laws, we should mobilize the whole Islamic World for a sharp confrontation with the Zionist regime… If we abide by the Qur’an, all of us should mobilize to kill… There is no doubt that the new wave in Palestine will wipe off this stigma from the face of the Islamic world… Anybody who recognizes Israel will burn in the fire of the Islamic nation’s fury, any who recognizes the Zionist regime means he is acknowledging the surrender and defeat of the Islamic world… As the Imam, Ayatollah Khomeini, said, Israel must be wiped off the map.”

It gets worse; the only thing worse than a Nazi is a religious Nazi. The president of a country about to go nuclear believes himself somewhat a prophet. It is reported that President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, predicted with “no doubt” his June election victory, months in advance, at a time when polls gave him barely 1 % support. Like Judaism and Christianity, Shiite Islam has its own version of the messianic return – the Mahdi- the reappearance of the Twelfth Imam. Tears stream down the cheeks of 2,000 men ripe for the return of the Mahdi, the 12th Imam they expect will soon emerge to bring justice and peace to a corrupt world. They pray at the Jamkaran Mosque that houses a well from which, some believe, the Mahdi will emerge. Last month, President Ahmadinejad gave $17 million of government funds to the shrine saying, “The main mission of the Islamic Revolution is to pave the way for the reappearance of the Twelfth Imam.” Hossein Bastani, a Iranian journalist, reported President Ahmadinejad saying in official meetings, “The hidden imam will reappear in two years.”

After his speech to the U.N. in September, 2005, President Ahmadinejad was caught on videotape telling a cleric that during the speech a halo appeared around his head right on the podium of the General Assembly. “I felt the atmosphere suddenly change. And for those 27 or 28 minutes, the leaders of the world did not blink. … It seemed as if a hand was holding them there, and it opened their eyes to receive the message from the Islamic Republic.'’

In that speech, he unabashedly prayed, surprising his audience, “O mighty Lord, I pray to you to hasten the emergence of your last repository, the Promised One, that perfect and pure human being, the one that will fill this world with justice and peace.”

At the rally commemorating the 27th anniversary of the 1979 Islamic revolution, Feb. 11, 2006, in Teheran, that created the Islamic Republic, Iranian President Ahmadinejad reiterated his call for Israel’s destruction, “We ask the West to remove what they created sixty years ago, and if they do not listen to our recommendations, then the Palestinian nation and other nations will eventually do this for them… Remove Israel before it is too late and save yourself from the fury of regional nations… Now in the West insulting the prophet is allowed, but questioning the Holocaust is considered a crime… The real Holocaust is what is happening in Palestine where the Zionists avail themselves of the fairy tale of Holocaust as blackmail and justification for killing children and women and making innocent people homeless… The cartoons are part of a Zionist plot… We ask, why do you insult the prophet? The response is that it is a matter of freedom, while in fact they are hostages of the Zionists. And the people of the U.S. and Europe should pay a heavy price for becoming hostages to Zionists… [The West] want democracy but do not respect the outcome. It seems that the West] only wants that form of democracy whose results just repeat your standpoints and only follow your policies!” The crowd that was there to celebrate the revolution began chanting “Death to America,” “Death to Israel,” and “Nuclear energy is our inalienable right.” After President Ahmadinejad declared that dust would blind “those who insulted the prophet,” the crowd cried, “Death to Denmark.”

That same evening, Gen. Mohammad-Reza Jaafari, the commander of Iran’s “Lovers of Martyrdom Garrison” and a Brigadier General in Iran’s elite Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps, speaking to a group of suicide volunteers in Shahr-Rey, on the outskirts of Tehran, on Saturday evening, vowed “Now that America is after gaining allies against the righteous Islamic Republic and wants to attack our sanctities, members of the martyrdom-seeking garrisons across the world have been put on alert so that if the Islamic Republic of Iran receives the smallest threat, the American and Israeli strategic interests will be burnt down everywhere.”

Prime Minister Ariel Sharon’s spokesman, Raanan Gissin, said, “We hope that these extremist declarations will make the world wake up to the nature of this regime — especially the fact that Iran’s nuclear program and its support of international terrorism represents not only a danger for Israel but for the entire Western civilization.”

“The Committee on the Present Danger” based in Washington, DC, has many influential members including James Woolsey the former Director of the CIA, George Schultz the former U.S. Secretary of State as well as Senators Joseph Lieberman and Senator Kyl, released this statement, “Nearly a century ago, Iran adopted a constitution that established freedoms for its citizens - that have been lost. The Ruling regime sponsors terrorism, represses human rights, jails dissidents, oppresses women, and is determined to have nuclear weapons. We believe the United States’s policy objective must be regime change in Iran…”

The Mighty Pen
“The Cartoon That Could End The World,” read the headlines! What is all the fuss about caricatures of the so-called Prophet of Islam? The Jyllands-Posten newspaper in Denmark published cartoons on September 30, 2005 that Muslims think are offensive.

The Pakistani parliament passed a resolution condemning the cartoons. Saudi Arabia and Iran withdrew their ambassadors from Denmark. But they do not take offense when Muslims bomb other Muslims at a Jordanian wedding or on a Tel Aviv bus or even in the World Trade Center where many devout Muslims were killed.

Why if the pictures originally ran September 30, 2005 are they just now, 4 months later causing a stir. A radical Muslim cleric, Ahmed Abu Laban , in Denmark saw the cartoons and on October 2 he met with Danish Prime Minister, Anders Fogh Rasmussen along with 10 Arab ambassadors that day to protest the cartoons. The Prime Minister instead of apologizing gave them a civics lesson in freedom of speech.

Then on October 10th 2005 Ahmed Abu Laban organized a 5,000 people march through Copenhagen to protest against the cartoons.

OnOctober 21st 2005 Prime Minister Fogh Rasmussen refuses to meet Muslim leaders again, saying his government is unable to interfere with press’ freedom.

October 27th 2005 Ahmed Abu Laban file a criminal complaint against the Jyllands-Posten newspaper but by January 7th 2006 prosecutors throw it out of court.

December 6th 2005 Ahmed Abu Laban took a delegation to the Organization of Islam Conference that was supposed to address terrorism and sectarian violence between Shia and Sunni Muslims, but came to be dominated by the Danish cartoons. The OIC issued a condemnation of the cartoons: “[We express our] concern at rising hatred against Islam and Muslims and condemned the recent incident of desecration of the image of the Holy Prophet Mohamed.”

After Al Jazeera broadcasted the cartoons in Iran, Afghanistan, Syria, Lebanon and the Palestinian territories, the violent protests began. At least 10 people have been killed across the Islamic world as a result of these protests.

In Nablus on Thursday evening (February 2nd 2006), Palestinian gunmen burst into a local hotel and abducted a 21-year-old German teacher releasing him shortly afterwards. In Gaza, meanwhile, masked militiamen surrounded the European Union’s headquarters in the Strip, threatening violence against any European national whose government had not apologized for insulting Mohammed. Palestinians tried on Saturday (February 4th 2006) to storm the European Union office in Gaza in protest over the printing by European newspapers of cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad causing Foreign diplomats and aid workers to flee out of Palestinian-controlled areas as the widening rift between the Islamic world and the West over the freedom of the press spilled over into armed violence. The violent Muslim response to a series of satirical cartoons depicting the prophet Mohammad, escalated still further after a number of prominent European newspapers reprinted the illustrations in a bid to defend press rights.
Over the weekend (February 4th – 5th 2006) Muslims, mostly Syrians, stormed and burned the Austrian and Danish consulate and terrorized Christian Communities in Lebanon.

The leaders of Muslim-majority Indonesia and Malaysia added their voices to the chorus of condemnation of the cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad, one with a turban resembling a bomb, in a face-off between freedom of speech and respect for religion.
“Imagine. A man stands before you in a boardroom, holding an inkwell.

“With this little jar of black liquid, I can make images that can get me fired, write words that will get me arrested. I can incite hate, and I can make pictures that would cause me to be executed in some countries. I can create international incidents.
“I can also leave a lasting legacy. I can inspire my children and others to attempt new things and change the world. I can make testimonies and promises to the world I will no doubt leave behind one day.

“With ink like this, Bibles, Torahs, Baghavad Gitas and Korans are printed. Millions file past old parchment in the national archives just to glimpse the ink put down two centuries ago outlining our freedoms.

“Don’t let it go to waste. But never let it become more important than another liquid: never let it become more important than blood.”

Right now, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Jordan, Egypt, Libya, and other Muslim nations are demanding that the Danish government punish a private newspaper for printing 12 drawings of Mohammed (the prophet of Islam). Furthermore they are demanding Danish laws and UN resolutions that would forbid such “offenses” from occurring again. Ambassadors have been recalled. Flags are being burned. Threats of death are being made. This is an international incident. It’s ink. It’s just ink.” (Anonymous)

The Arab Promise
“Abraham said to Yahweh, “Oh, that IshmaEl might live before you! (Genesis 17:18)”

In 1the 16th chapter of the Book of Genesis we are introduced to Ishmael, the father of the Arab people. In the above verses we are given the particulars of the Ishmaelite Promise. We are told that his disposition will be that of a wild man. The connotation is that which typically describes an ass.

We are told that the descendants of Ishmael, the Arabs, will not be easily numbered for [Yahweh] will multiply him exceedingly. They will be a great nation, a mighty race of people.

There is a section of the Ishmaelite Promise that says, “He shall be a wild man; his hand shall be against every man, and every man’s hand against him. And he shall dwell in the presence of all his brethren.” First of all “his brethren” refers to Isaac and his descendents the Israelites.

Yahweh made a covenant with Abraham.
“I will bless those who bless you, and I will curse him who curses you; and in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed. (Genesis 12.2-3)”

In Genesis 22:15-18, we read, “And the angel of Yahweh called unto Abraham out of heaven the second time, And said, By myself have I sworn, saith Yahweh, for because thou hast done this thing, and hast not withheld thy son, thine only son: That in blessing I will bless thee, and in multiplying I will multiply thy seed as the stars of the heaven, and as the sand which is upon the sea shore; and thy seed shall possess the gate of his enemies; And in thy seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed; because thou hast obeyed my voice.” What seed is he talking about, IshmaEl or Isaac? Muslims believe that the Torah is wrong, and they celebrate the Eid al-Adha holiday that commemorates Abraham nearly killing his oldest son, Ishmael. However, according to Muslim historian Yusef al-Massoudy, two early Muslim Imams, Ibn Abbas and Akrama, debated each other over the identity of the son Abraham sacrificed:
“Akrama asked: `Who was supposed to have been slain?’
Ibn Abbas answered: `Ishmael!’
‘Why?’ asked Akrama.
Ibn Abbas answered: `Because how can Allah pass the good news of Isaac’s birth to Abraham, then order that he be killed?’
`I can bring you proof from the Koran that Isaac was supposed to have been slain’. Said Akrama, `Thus will thy Lord prefer thee and teach thee the interpretation of events, and perfect His grace upon thee and upon the household of Jacob as He perfected it upon thy fathers, Abraham and Isaac. Lo! Thy Lord is All-Knowing and All-Wise’. (Joseph 6).”

It is because Yahweh was able to look down on Abraham and see the perfect submission of Messiah revealed and reflected in him. That is the reason Abraham could be the heir of all the covenant promises. And who ever he passed the blessing on to would carry the birthright of Covenant.

“I will establish my covenant with ISAAC. For an everlasting covenant, and with his seed after him…My Covenant will I establish with ISAAC”(Genesis 17:19, 21).”

“Let it not be grievous in thy sight because of the lad, and because of the bondswoman… for in ISAAC shall thy seed be called” (Genesis 21:12).

Basically, an Arab is a descendant of Ishmael. But we must also include Esau’s linage because contrary to his mother’s wishes he marries into the Ishmaelite Dynasty.

“Esau took his wives from the women of Canaan: Adah daughter of Elon the Hittite, and Oholibamah daughter of Anah and granddaughter of Zibeon the Hivite- also Basemath daughter of Ishmael…( Genesis 36:2,3)”

What kind of man is the Arab? He is a composite of IshmaEl & Esau, “He shall be a wild man; his hand shall be against every man, and every man’s hand against him. And he shall dwell in the presence of all his brethren… By your sword you shall live, and you shall serve your brother [Israel]; and it shall come to pass, when you become restless, that you shall break his yoke from your neck (Genesis 16:11-13 & Genesis 27:40)”

The Arabs are Semites because they come from the line of Shem. “Cursed be Canaan; a servant of servants he shall be to his brethren….Blessed be Yahweh, the Elohim of Shem, and may Canaan be his servant. (Genesis 9:25,26)” This makes, as much as they hate to admit it, Israel their brother. Everything they are harkens back to their Semite heritage. Their own language, Aramaic and later Arabic is a perversion of Hebrew. In fact the languages of ancient Assyria, Babylonia, Phoenicia, Ethiopia and Arabia are all relative to Hebrew.

Islam, the Religion of Hate
Four thousand years ago a broken Father cried out for his first born son, “Oh, that IshmaEl might live before you!…as for Ishmael, I have heard you. Behold, I have blessed him, and will make him fruitful, and will multiply him exceedingly. He shall beget twelve princes, and I will make him a great nation. (Genesis 17:18,20,21)”

Islam, an Arabic word that means submission, is a religion that was founded by Ahmed, the Camel-Driver, who became the so-called prophet of the Arabian Desert, usually known as Mohammed.

Various archeological digs in Arabia and throughout the Middle East have uncovered that Islam is a modern version of the ancient Arab fertility religion of the moon god, Sin calling him Allah, the Most High. They believed he was the moon-god married to the sun goddess and the stars were his daughters. The names of the “daughters of Allah” as given in the Koran are Lat, Uzza and Manat (Surah 53:19-20). They are the stars next to the symbol of the Moon. Mohammed decided to be the Moses of the Arab people. The term “Allah” for the moon god came from the Arabic word “al-ilah” “the god” which was later shortened to Allah “ “Most High.” Mohammad dropped all references to the name “Sin” but retained the generic “Allah”.

About four hundred years before the birth of Muhammad one Amr bin Lahyo … a descendant of Qahtan and king of Hijaz, had put an idol called Hubal (or Sin) on the roof of the Kaba. This was one of the chief deities of the Quraish before Islam. (Muhammad The Holy Prophet, Hafiz Ghulam Sarwar (Pakistan), p 18-19, Muslim)” Is this why the crescent moon is on top of every minaret on every mosque?

Does the average Muslim know that he is worshipping a moon god? No. Does he know why the crescent moon symbol sits on top of his mosque? No. Is he shocked and perhaps angered at these facts of history? Yes. But can mere denial or angry threats refute the fact that Islam is nothing more than a modern version of the ancient religion of the moon god Allah? No. The average Muslim has been kept in the dark by the Mullahs and Imams who would lose their power if the truth ever got out.

“Interestingly, not many Muslims want to accept that Allah was already being worshipped at the Ka’ba in Mecca by Arab pagans before Muhammad came. Some Muslims become angry when they are confronted with this fact. But history is not on their side. Pre-Islamic literature has proved this.” (Who Is This Allah?, G. J. O. Moshay, 1994, p 138)

There are two reasons for the success of Islam. In the first place, the creed which Mohammed taught to his followers was very simple: love Allah, the Ruler of the World, the Merciful and Compassionate; honor and obey your parents; be honest, humble and charitable; to abstain from strong drink; do not eat unclean meat; that was all. Secondly, Mohammed promised that those who fell in battle to spread Islam by the sword would go directly to Heaven. Here you see the origin of the homicidal bomber.

The Koran says: “(As for) those who disbelieve in Our communications, We shall make them enter fire; so oft as their skins are thoroughly burned, We will change them for other skins, that they may taste the chastisement; surely Allah is Mighty, Wise.

(Surah 4.56)”
“O you who believe! do not take the Jews and the Netzarim for friends; they are friends of each other; and whoever amongst you takes them for a friend, then surely he is one of them; surely Allah does not guide the unjust people. (Surah 5.51)”

“Certainly you will find the most violent of people in enmity for those who believe (to be) the Jews and those who are polytheists, and you will certainly find the nearest in friendship to those who believe (to be) those who say: We are Christians; this is because there are priests and monks among them and because they do not behave proudly. (Surah 5.82)”

During the ten years between 622 and 632 CE, Mohammed’s Islamic armies waged a bloody revolution against the polytheistic Arabs, the monotheistic Jews, Netzarim, and Christians establishing the Islamic faith in the Arabian Peninsula by the point of the sword. After Mohammed’s death, his successors continued with these conquests and by 650 CE the Islamic revolution had conquered Egypt, most of North Africa, Israel, Syria and Persia to the counterfeit religion. Islamic Moors from North Africa conquered Spain in 711 CE and held the country until 1492.

Islam’s revolution continued for many years as a many tentacle evil monster attacking on multiple fronts. During this time, most of western India and Indonesia gave way the domination of Islam, as well as Turkey, that became the base of a new Islamic Empire – the mighty Ottoman Empire – allowing for a more westerly march by the armies of Islam only barely halted at Vienna in Central Europe in 1683.

Today, the vast amount of oil money of the Arab states some of them total Islamic nations have gone to finance the Islamic revolution in the mould of the Hashishin which is aimed at destroying Western Civilization. They see the West as the last and greatest obstacle to subjecting the whole world to the authority of Allah. Many Islamic leaders try to blame the establishment of modern Israel in 1948 as the reason the Arabs hate the West but as I’ve shown, they hated us in the 19th century when there was no nation of Israel. The Arab league, afraid for their own stability created a nemesis for modern Israel artificially forming a Palestinian people to try and drive the Jews from their land by jihad. Yasser Arafat himself was an immigrant from Egypt. As Mark Twain and other could witness to and did, no one was living in the interior of the land of Israel by the 19th century because it was largely desert.

Mark Twain, or more correctly, Samuel Clemens, took a tour of the Land of Israel in 1867. This is how he described that land: “We traversed some miles of desolate country whose soil is rich enough but is given wholly to weeds–a silent, mournful expanse… A desolation is here that not even imagination can grace with the pomp of life and action. We reached Tabor safely… We never saw a human being on the whole route. We pressed on toward the goal of our crusade, renowned Jerusalem. The further we went the hotter the sun got and the more rocky and bare, repulsive and dreary the landscape became… There was hardly a tree or a shrub anywhere. Even the olive and the cactus, those fast friends of a worthless soil, had almost deserted the country. No landscape exists that is more tiresome to the eye than that which bounds the approaches to Jerusalem… Jerusalem is mournful, dreary, and lifeless. I would not desire to live here. It is a hopeless, dreary, heartbroken Land… Israel sits in sackcloth and ashes.

Over it broods the spell of a curse that has withered its fields and fettered its energies… Israel is desolate and unlovely. And why should it be otherwise? Can the Curse of the Deity beautify a land? Israel is no more of this work-day world.” There was no large mass of Arabs there because the land would not support them. Where was this great Palestinian nation? It did not exist. Palestine was a made up name given to the land of Israel by the Romans and again used by the British.

Except for Jerusalem and a few coastal cities mostly only the Bedouin occasionally pitched his tent there. The British mandate forced the Bedouins from their nomadic lives into artificial villages and incorporated many Jordanians into what would become the “Palestinian people.” The Arab league of Nations supported the Palestinians in their jihad against Israel, but time and time again they were defeated and humiliated in the wars that they fought against Israel in 1948, 1956, in only six days in 1967, 1973 and 1982. Because of our Judeo-Christian heritage, the US and the UK have supported Israel more or less in their right to exist.

This has served to escalate the hatred Islam has against the West. It irritated it but it did not cause it, it has existed for over 150 years. What started as a some crazy notion of a nineteen-century Muslim crazy man has escalated into a global struggle between Islam, Israel and all non-Muslims in the West.

Queen Margaret the II of Denmark has called on her country “to show our opposition to Islam”, regardless of the flack such a stance provokes abroad. These comments shows that Denmark is not a liberal haven for those seeking a no holes barred life in northern Europe.

Due to the refusal to suspend freedom of speech over the Mohammedan cartoons the Danish government has already been accused of fuelling Arab hatred by introducing measures which effectively closed the country to asylum seekers.

She said: “We are being challenged by Islam these years - globally as well as locally. It is a challenge we have to take seriously. We have let this issue float about for too long because we are tolerant and lazy.

“We have to show our opposition to Islam and we have to, at times, run the risk of having unflattering labels placed on us because there are some things for which we should display no tolerance.”

“And when we are tolerant, we must know whether it is because of convenience or conviction.”

The Queen, who turns 65 tomorrow and has reigned since 1972, wields no political power but does occasionally comment on political issues. “We should not be content with living next to each other. We should rather live together.”

There Is No Elohim But Yahweh
M. Hirsch Goldberg, in the “Jewish Connection” (p. 33), makes this observation about the Arabs before the Islamic invasion in the 600s CE: “In Arabia, whole tribes converted to Judaism, including two kinds of the Himyarites. French Bible critic Ernest Renan remarked that ‘only a hair’s breadth prevented all Arabia from becoming Jewish.”

Rabbi Berel Wein in “Echoes of Glory” (p. 299) tells us: “Most Jewish historians (until the recent revisionist-historians) are convinced that the Byzantine Church would have attempted to eradicated Judaism totally if the Church itself had not been defeated and its plan for hegemony in Asia Minor and the Mediterranean basin thwarted by the rising tide of Islam. Thus the coming of Islam may be seen as a providential occurrence that allowed the Jews to slip between the cracks Islam made in Byzantine Church persecution. However, as is the case in all historic ‘gifts’ in Jewish history, the rise of Islam would prove to be only a mixed blessing for Israel.”

Islam says, “There is no God but Allah and Mohammad is the Messenger of Allah.” But the Holy Scriptures say: “For the sake of Your Word and according to Your will, You have done this great thing and made it known to your servant. How great you are, O Sovereign Yahweh! There is no one like you, and there is no Elohim but you, as we have heard with our own ears. And who is like your people Israel—the one nation on earth that Elohim went out to redeem as a people for himself, and to make a name for himself, and to perform great and awesome wonders by driving out nations and their gods from before your people, whom you redeemed from Egypt? (2 Samuel 7:21-23)”

I don’t care what the Muslims say. Others have mocked Yahweh and not lived to tell about it.
“Do not be led astray: Elohim is not mocked, for whatever a man sows, that he shall also reap” (Galatians 6:7)

In 1966, during an interview with an American Magazine, John Lennon of the Beatles said: “Christianity will end, it will disappear. I do not have to argue about that. I am certain. Jesus was ok, but his subjects were too simple, today we are more famous than Him” What he actually meant was that his message had replaced Messiah YahShua’s message. Lennon, the man that said the Beatles were more famous than King Messiah YahShua, died on the sidewalks of New York shot six times by a fan.

“Let him not deceive himself by trusting what is worthless, for he will get nothing in return. (Job 15:31)”
During the Brazilian Presidential campaign, Prime Minister Tancredo Neves got 500 votes from his Liberal Alliance Party. He said, “Not even God would remove me from the Presidency!” Neves was elected Brazil’s first civilian president for 21 years. Sure he got the votes, sure he won the election but prior to the inauguration ceremony Neves was taken ill and died.

“…there is no authority except that which Yahweh has established. (Romans 13:1)”

Cazuza was considered to be one of the biggest poets of Brazilian rock. During a show in Canecão (Rio de Janeiro), whilst smoking his cigarette, he puffed out some smoke into the air and said: “God, that’s for you.” A few days later, he was hospitalized in Rio with a bacterial infection. He had Aids. He died, on the 7th of July, 1990.

“For what is your life? It is even a vapor that appears for a little time and then vanishes away. (James 4:14)”

In 1907 White Star line and Harlem and Wolf ship builders formed a plan, to build three large ships, the largest in the world: the Olympic, Gigantic and the largest the Titanic.. After the construction of Titanic, a reporter asked Thomas Andrews, the ships architect, how safe the Titanic would be. With an ironic tone he said: “Not even God can sink it.” It did sink when it hit one of Yahweh’s marvels – the iceberg. There has never been universal agreement over the number of lives lost in the sinking of the Titanic. Approximately, 1,500 were lost, but I am certain about one thing - Thomas Andrews was one of them.

“Pride goeth before destruction and a haughty spirit before a fall.” (Proverbs 16:18).

The great evangelist Billy Graham visited Marilyn Monroe backstage during a one of her shows. The Spirit of Yahweh had sent him to offer her salvation. After hearing what the Preacher had to say, she said: “I don’t need your Jesus.” A week later, she was found dead in her apartment.

“How shall we escape if we ignore such a great salvation? (Hebrews 2:3)”

Ben Scott, the ex-lead vocalist for the band AC/DC, sang: ” Don’t need reason, don’t need rhyme, isn’t nothing I would rather do. Going down, party time, my friends are gonna be there too. I’m on the highway to hell… Hey Satan, payin’ my dues, playing in a rocking band. Hey Momma, look at me, I’m on my way to the promised land…Don’t stop me; I’m going down all the way, wow I’m on the highway to hell.” On the 19th of February 1980, Bon Scott was found dead; he had choked on his own vomit.

“There is a way that seems right to a man, but in the end it leads to death. (Proverbs 14:12)”

Last year some kids were killed but the world took little notice, they weren’t famous. But Yahweh noticed. It was in Campinas, Spain. A group of friends, drunk, went to pick up a friend. The mother accompanied her daughter to the car because she was so worried about the drunkenness of her friends and she pleaded with her daughter - holding her hand tight, who was already seated in the car: “HONEY, GO WITH GOD AND MAY HE PROTECT YOU!”

She responded: “ONLY IF HE TRAVELS IN THE TRUNK, “CUZ INSIDE HERE THERE AIN’T NO ROOM!”

A few hours later, the patrolman came to the mother’s house and informed her that her daughter had been involved in a fatal accident, everyone had died. The accident was so bad you couldn’t even make out what kind of car it had been. Surprisingly, the trunk was intact. The police said there was no way the trunk could have remained intact. Then as an afterthought he said to her, “You know what, it’s the strangest thing, inside the trunk was a carton of eggs and not one of them was broken.”

“Blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked or stand in the way of sinners or sit in the seat of mockers.

But his delight is in the law of Yahweh, and on His law he meditates day and night. (Psalm 1:1,2)”

Arabs In Prophecy
“These are the names of the sons of Ishmael, listed in the order of their birth: Nebajoth the firstborn of Ishmael, Kedar, Adbeel, Mibsam, Mishma, Dumah, Massa, Hadad, Tema, Jetur, Naphish and Kedemah. These were the sons of Ishmael, and these are the names of the twelve tribal rulers according to their settlements and camps. (Genesis 25:13-16)”

Nebajoth, the first born of IshmaEl, whose names means “High Places” is the father of the Arabs of Northern Arabia, from the Euphrates to the Red sea.

“Esau took his wives from the daughters of Canaan: Adah the daughter of Elon the Hittite; Aholibamah the daughter of Anah, the daughter of Zibeon the Hivite; and Basemath, Ishmael’s daughter, sister of Nebajoth (Genesis 36:2,3)”

The confederation of tribes by the marriage of Ishmael and Esau’s line was called Edom. “So Esau dwelt in Mount Seir. Esau is Edom. (Genesis 36:8)”

The confederation also came to included the descendants of Lot. “…both the daughters of Lot were with child by their father. The firstborn bore a son and called his name Moab; he is the father of the Moabites to this day. And the younger, she also bore a son and called his name Ben-Ammi; he is the father of the people of Ammon to this day. (Genesis 19:36-38)” Edom was stronger than Israel because they had solidified themselves into an earthly government. Today, Edom and Moab is called Jordan and their capital is Ammon.

“But [Israel] shall fly down upon the shoulder of the Philistines toward the west (namely the Palestinians of Ashkelon, Gaza, Ekron, and the remnant of Ashdod); together they shall plunder the people of the East; they shall lay their hand on Edom and Moab; and the people of Ammon shall obey them. (Isaiah 11:14)”

By the time of the Moshiach Neged (Anti-Christ) when he make the “Abomination of Desolations” we are to run to Petra which is located in Edom as prophesied by the prophets.

“[Yahweh] will surely assemble, O Jacob, all of thee, (not just some of us) I will surely gather the remnant of Israel (and her lost ten tribes) I will put them together as the sheep of Bozrah (Petra in Edom) as the flock in the midst of the fold (as the 12 tribes surrounding the Tabernacle). They shall make great noise by reason of the multitude of men (and women and children, young and old, rich and poor). The breaker (Moshiach Neged) has come up before them: they have broken up and have passed through the gate, and are gone out by it: (Petra) and their KING (Messiah) shall pass before them and the King on the head of them. (Micah 2 : 12,13)

There will be a 2nd exodus of Yahweh’s people except this time we will be headed down a highway along the mountain tops of MOAB and EDOM, following the same exact path as our forefathers but this time fleeing the other way.

MOAB, has to protect us because it has been commanded of him by Yahweh our Elohim to do so, for it is written in Isaiah. ” Let mine outcasts, dwell with thee MOAB, be thou a COVER to them from the face of the spoiler (the Beast, the Anti-Christ) (Isaiah 16: 3,4).

Kedar was the second son of IshmaEl and his name means “dark skinned one.” He was an Arabian nomad, the father of the Bedouins, that was kept moving because he could not get along with the rest of the Arabs.

“Woe is me, that I dwell in Meshech, that I dwell among the tents of Kedar! My soul has dwelt too long with one who hates peace. I am for peace; but when I speak, they are for war. (Psalm 120:5-7)”

Although they have been judged for the way they treated Israel, a remnant will repent and be part of the Messianic Kingdom.
“All the flocks of Kedar shall be gathered together to you, the rams of Nebaioth shall minister to you; they shall ascend with acceptance on My altar, and I will glorify the house of My glory. (Isaiah 60:7)”

AbdeEl was the third son of IshmaEl and his name means, “Sorrow of El.” He dwelt in Arabia.

The forth son is Misbam and his name means, “Sweet Smell.” He was named this because of his sweet character for it is said he was the peacemaker amongst his brethren.

The last dweller of Arabia was the twelfth son of IshmaEl, Kedemah whose name means, “Eastward,” because he dwelt in the southeastern part of Arabia. These are the prophecies concerning the Arabian Federation:
“The burden against Arabia. In the forest in Arabia you will lodge, O you traveling companies of Dedanites. O inhabitants of the land of Tema, bring water to him who is thirsty; with their bread they met him who fled. For they fled from the swords, from the drawn sword, from the bent bow, and from the distress of war. (Isaiah 21:13-17)”

“Then I took the cup (of fury) from Yahweh’s hand, and made all the nations drink, to whom Yahweh had sent me… Dedan, Tema, Buz, and all who are in the farthest corners; all the kings of Arabia and all the kings of the mixed multitude who dwell in the desert… Therefore you shall say to them, “Thus says Yahweh Tz’veout, the Elohim of Israel: “Drink, be drunk, and vomit! Fall and rise no more, because of the sword which I will send among you.”‘ And it shall be, if they refuse to take the cup from your hand to drink, then you shall say to them, “Thus says Yahweh Tz’veout: “You shall certainly drink! For behold, I begin to bring calamity on the city which is called by My name, and should you be utterly unpunished? You shall not be unpunished, for I will call for a sword on all the inhabitants of the earth,” says Yahweh Tz’veout.’ (Jeremiah 25:17,23,27-29)”

Mishma, Dumah, and Massa, are the object of an ancient Hebrew proverb, “Hear (Mishma) much, say (Dumah) little, and bear (Massa) much.” Hadar’s name means, “Sharpness.” Tema was the ninth son and his name means, “Desert.” Yetar was the eleventh son and his name means, “Defiance.” The twelfth son, Nephish, whose name means, “Refreshment.” They all populated Syria.

“Thus says Yahweh: ‘For three transgressions of Damascus, and for four, I will not turn away its punishment, because they have threshed Gilead with implements of iron. But I will send a fire into the House of HazaEl (He who sees El), which shall devour the palaces of Ben-Hadad. I will also break the gate bar of Damascus, and cut off the inhabitant from the Valley of Aven (Valley of Vanity or Idols), and the one who holds the scepter from Bet Eden (House of Pleasure). The people of Syria shall go captive to Kir,’ says Yahweh. (Amos 1:3-5)”

The other players in the Middle East are Egypt and Iraq. Today Egypt enjoys a strained peace with Israel. Likewise, Assyria, northern Iraq made up of mainly the Kurds historically have shared destinies. Both countries have had a love hate relationship with Israel. But according to Scripture they will have an exalted position in the Messianic Kingdom: “In that day there will be a highway from Egypt to Assyria. The Assyrians will go to Egypt and the Egyptians to Assyria. The Egyptians and Assyrians will worship together. In that day Israel will be the third, along with Egypt and Assyria, a blessing on the earth. Yahweh Almighty will bless them, saying, “Blessed be Egypt my people, Assyria my handiwork, and Israel my inheritance. (Isaiah 19:23-25)”

The Palestinians
“The house of Jacob shall be a fire and the house of Joseph a flame, but the house of Esau shall be stubble; they shall kindle them and burn them and consume them, and there shall be no more survivor of the house of Esau, for the Lord has spoken it.”
The leading rabbis of today teach that the Palestinians are the modern-day descendents of the House of Esau! These Palestinians live in both Edom, a province of Jordan, and within Israel under the leadership of Hamas!

“Thus says Yahweh: “For three transgressions of Edom, and for four, I will not turn away its punishment, Because he pursued his brother with the sword, And cast off all pity; His anger tore perpetually, And he kept his wrath forever (Amos 1:11).”

“For the Day of Yahweh is near upon all the nations. As you have done, it shall be done to you; your dealings will return upon your own head. For as you have drunk upon the mountain of My holiness [desecrating it in the wild revelry of the destroyers] so shall all the nations drink continually [in turn, of My wrath]; yes, they shall drink, talk foolishly, and swallow down [the full measure of punishment] and they shall be [destroyed] as though they had not been.

But on Mount Zion [in Jerusalem] there shall be deliverance [for those who escape], and it shall be holy; and the House of Jacob shall possess its [own former] possessions. The House of Jacob shall be a fire, and the house of Joseph a flame (this is going to happen when Israel is unified), but the House of Esau shall be stubble; they shall kindle and burn them and consume them, and there shall be no survivor of the House of Esau, for Yahweh has spoken it.”

This prophecy means that the Palestinians are going to “burn like stubble”, are going to be “consumed” and “kindled”, by a weapon of fire exploding out of Israel. This is the prophecy, and it means what it says! When, what time period will this finally occur?

When “The house of Jacob…and the house of Joseph” are unified.

“Thus says the Sovereign Yahweh: “Surely I will take the stick of Joseph, which is in the hand of Ephraim, and the tribes of Israel, his companions; and I will join them with it, with the stick of Judah, and make them one stick, and they will be one in My hand.”‘And the sticks on which you write will be in your hand before their eyes.

Then say to them, “Thus says the Sovereign Yahweh: “Surely I will take the children of Israel from among the nations, wherever they have gone, and will gather them from every side and bring them into their own land. (Ezekiel 37:19-21)”

The Palestinians have naturally congregated together within Gaza, the west bank and in the Arab Quarter of Jerusalem, and the Jews have largely congregated within their own towns and villages to include most of Jerusalem.

I take no pleasure in the death of Palestinians. I want everyone to come into covenant. Yahweh commanded the Covenant keeper to, “not take vengeance, nor bear any grudge against the children of your people, but you shall love your neighbor as yourself: I am Yahweh (Leviticus 19:18).” The Messiah reiterated this, “You have heard that it was said, “You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you (Matthew 5:42-44).”

The Heavenly Father said, “For I have no pleasure in the death of him that dieth, saith the Sovereign Yahweh ” [Ezekiel 18:32]
However, Yahweh has said eventually: “The house of Jacob shall be a fire and the house of Joseph a flame, but the house of Esau shall be stubble.”

My seed Is In Isaac
“…For they are not all Israel, which are of Israel: neither, because they are the seed of Abraham, are they all children: but, In Isaac shall thy seed be called. That is, they which are the children of the flesh, these are not the children of Yahweh: but the children of the promise are counted for the seed. (Romans 9:6-8)”

It is in Isaac, who as a perfect type of the death, burial and resurrection of Messiah, that the seed would be called. Even though Ishmael was the firstborn of Abraham, it was Isaac who was the son of promise. It was through him that the seed would come forth. Ishmael was a type of the Old Adam, Isaac a type of the Last Adam! Adam was of the earth, earthy; but YahShua our High Priest was of the heavens, heavenly.

Ishmael, although the firstborn, was to be subservient to Isaac. Esau was subject to Jacob for it was Jacob having his name changed to Israel that received the blessing of the firstborn. And so it is, that Torah is absorbed into the higher New Covenant of GRACE!

“By faith Abraham hath offered up Isaac, being tried, and the only begotten he did offer up who did receive the promises, of whom it was said — `In Isaac shall a seed be called to thee…concidering that Yahweh was able to raise [Isaac] up, even from the dead, from which he also received him in a perfect type. (Hebrews 11:17-19)”

“…By myself have I sworn, saith Yahweh, for because thou hast done this thing, and hast not withheld thy son, thine only son: that in blessing I will bless thee, and in multiplying I will multiply thy seed as the stars of the heaven, and as the sand which is upon the sea shore; and thy seed shall possess the gate of his enemies; and in thy seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed; because thou hast obeyed my voice. (Genesis 22:16-18)”

Abraham believed this and it was “credited it to him as righteousness.”

“Now to Abraham and his Seed were the promises made. He does not say, “And to seeds,” as of many, but as of one, “And to your Seed,” who is Messiah. (Galatians 3:16)”

“For ye are all the children of Yahweh by faith in Messiah YahShua. …And if ye be Messiah’s, then are ye Abraham’s SEED, and heirs according to the promise.” (Galatians 3:26,29.)

“There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Messiah YahShua. And if ye be Messiah’s, then are ye Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise. (Galatians 3:28-29)”

“For verily [Messiah] took not on him the nature of angels; but he took on him the seed of Abraham. Wherefore in all things it behoved him to be made like unto his brethren, that he might be a merciful and faithful High Priest in things pertaining to Yahweh, to make reconciliation for the sins of the eople. (Hebrews 2:16-17)”

p “This Happened so that he could be the father of every uncircumcised person who receives faith and thus has righteousness credited to him, and at the same time be the father of every circumcised person who not only has had a brit milah, but also follows in the footsteps of the Faith which Abraham our father had when he was yet still uncircumcised. For the promise to Abraham and his seed, that he would inherit the world did not come through legalism but through the righteousness that Faith produces. For if the heirs are produced through legalism, then Faith is pointless and the promise worthless. (Romans 4:12-14)”
Here it is. This is the secret of realizing the promise made to the Majority of this earth! Sadly, only a remnant of the Majority will realize who they are and what their promise is.

So, without even knowing that we were Israel, without ever accepting the constitution of our Faith – the Torah, before ever receiving any of the tokens of the Covenant, we believed in King Messiah YahShua and thus it was credited to us as righteousness engrafting us into the Commonwealth of Israel by His shed blood!

“…if you confess with your mouth, “YahShua is King,” and believe in your heart that Yahweh raised him from the dead, you will be saved. (Romans 10:9)”

“…everyone who calls on the name of Yahweh will be saved; for on Mount Zion and in Jerusalem there will be deliverance, as Yahweh has said, among the survivors whom Yahweh calls. (Joel 2:32)”

“Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore I will deliver him; I will set him on high, because he has known My name. He shall call upon Me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him and honor him. With long life I will satisfy him, and show him My salvation. (Psalm 91:14-16)”

All who are immersed into the King of Israel – the Messiah are indeed blessed. Without Messiah you didn’t even know you were Israel.

“Praise be to the Yahweh and Father of our King Messiah YahShua, who has blessed us in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Messiah. For he chose us in him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in his sight. In love he predestined us to be adopted as his sons through Messiah YahShua, in accordance with his pleasure and will— to the praise of his glorious grace, which he has freely given us in the One he loves. In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of Yahweh’s grace that he lavished on us with all wisdom and understanding. And hemade known to us the mystery of his will according to his good pleasure, which he purposed in Messiah, to be put into effect when the times will have reached their fulfillment—to bring all things in heaven and on earth together under one head, even Messiah. In him we were also chosen, having been predestined according to the plan of him who works out everything in conformity with the purpose of his will, in order that we, who were the first to hope in Messiah, might be for the praise of his glory. And you also were included in Messiah when you heard the word of truth, the Full Messianic Message of your salvation. Having believed, you were marked in him with a seal, the promised Holy Spirit, who is a deposit guaranteeing our inheritance until the redemption of those who are Yahweh’s possession—to the praise of his glory. (Ephesians 1:3-14)”

The Promise is made with the seed of Abraham and the SEED is with Isaac. And Isaac is the father of Israel.

“[Israel reminded Yahweh] You said, I will surely do you good and make your descendants as the sand of the sea, which cannot be numbered for majority. (Genesis 32:12)”

“…the days are coming, says Yahweh, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah– not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day that I took them by the hand to lead them out of the land of Egypt (Deuteronomy 29,30), My covenant which they broke, though I was a husband to them, says Yahweh. But this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, says Yahweh: I will put My Torah in their minds, and write it on their hearts; and I will be their Elohim, and they shall be My people. No more shall every man teach his neighbor, and every man his brother, saying, “Know Yahweh,’ for they all shall know Me, from the least of them to the greatest of them, says Yahweh. For I will forgive their iniquity, and their sin I will remember no more.” (Jeremiah 31:31-36)”

“…all Israel will be saved, as it is written: “The Deliverer will come out of Zion, and He will turn away ungodliness from Jacob; for this is My covenant with them, when I take away their sins. (Isaiah 59:20, 21)” (Romans 11:26,27)”

Samuel Clemens (Mark Twain) wrote in 1899: “If the statistics are correct, the Jews represent merely 1% of humanity - an irrelevant spark in the light of the Milky Way. Normally speaking, the Jews should hardly be heard of, and yet we heard and hear of them again and again. They can rival any people on earth in fame, and their significance in economy and trade are in no ratio to their population. Their contribution to the list of great names in literature, natural science, art, music, finance, medicine and profound learning is just as amazing. They have done extremely well in this world - with their hands tied behind their backs. They could rightly be proud of themselves. The Egyptians, Babylonians and Persians came into power, filled the earth with their glory, but perished. The Greeks and Romans followed, “made a lot of noise,” and then disappeared. Other nations rose up, their torches burned for a while, and then they were extinguished, and today they sit in the twilight or have completely disappeared. The Jews saw it all. They beat them all, and are today what they always were, showing no decay, no aging, no weakening, no decline of energy, no blunting of their wide-awake dynamic spirit. Everything is mortal except the Jew. All other powers perish but he remains. What is the mystery of his immortality?” Torah, Mr. Clemens

We continue this weekend with our regular Triennial Torah reading which can be found at

This is our 13th week 12/06/2010
Gen 13
After Abraham had dwelt in Egypt they left and came from the south to Alon More which today is near Nabulus. It is from here that Abraham and Lot divide and go their own ways. Lot chose the plain of Jordan which at that time was like the Garden of Eden with lots of water.

In order for the flocks to grow to a size that they had to split takes time. We have recorded that Abraham left Haran in the 2023 after creation. Chapter 14 is about the invasion of the armies from the north, and that year was 2027 after creation or 1810 BC, so Abraham and Lot splittiing must have been close to 2027 in order for the flocks to grow enough that they had to separate.

Lot then chose to settle near the city of Sodom.

Yahovah again says to Abraham to look at all the land He is going to give to him. This is done at Alon More near Nabulus. After this Abraham leaves and goes to the Oak trees of Mamre near Hebron.

http://www.forward.com/articles/11956/
While perusing last week’s Torah reading in my ‘Etz Hayim’ (Jewish Publication Society, 1985) translation, I was struck by the phrase in its opening verse (Genesis 18:1) about God appearing to Abraham by ‘the terebinths of Mamre.’ Although the word ‘terebinth’ doesn’t flow easily off the tongue, it is mellifluous and sounds like it means something extremely impressive. In the Hebrew, the phrase is elonei mamrei, elonei being the genitive plural of elon. Yet when I looked elon up in my Alcalay Hebrew-English dictionary, I was told that it means oak, not terebinth. I then looked up terebinth in an English dictionary and found that it is a tree or bush in the cashew/pistachio family from which turpentine is made. (The word turpentine actually derives from terebinth.) So my question is: Is there a basis for elon meaning terebinth rather than oak? And if not, how did this mistranslation occur? And why does my Stone Chumash [Pentateuch] have neither oaks nor terebinths, bur rather ‘plains of Mamre’?”

If it sounds like there’s a lot of confusion about where it was that God appeared to Abraham, that’s because there is.

Confusion number one is between the Hebrew word alon, which means oak, and elah, which means terebinth. The word elon in Genesis, which has the initial vowel of elah and the final syllable of alon, looks like a hybrid of the two that allows one to choose the meaning one wishes. Yet it needs to be remembered that the Hebrew text of the Bible was originally written without vowel signs (and still is written that way in a Torah scroll), so that the original pronunciation may have been alonei and not elonei.

In any case, this is how the first translation ever made of the Bible, the second-century BCE Greek Septuagint, interpreted the word, for it gives us pros te drui te Mambre, that is, “by the oak of Mamre.” (Why “oak” is in the singular, I don’t know.) Yet, the next translation we know of, the first-century C.E. Aramaic version of Onkelos, a standard Jewish text to this day, has the puzzling b’meishrei Mamre, which can mean either “in the plains of Mamre” or “in the encampment of Mamre.” Since the verse in Genesis continues, “And he [Abraham] was sitting in the entrance to his tent [ohel],” perhaps Onkelos was working with a variant text that had ohalei, “the tents [or encampment] of,” rather than alonei. Although this may not seem terribly likely, I can’t think of any other explanation.

Be that as it may, when Jerome produced his fourth-century C.E. translation of the Bible into Latin, which was adopted by the Catholic church and heavily influenced all early Bible translations into European languages, he followed Onkelos by choosing — don’t ask me why — not “in the tents” but “in the plains” of Mamre (that is, in convalle Mamre). This was picked up by the 1611 King James Bible, which passed it on to other translations — hence Mr. Morris’s Stone Chumash. But not all English Bible translators agreed. Already in 1530, William Tyndale translated alonei mamre as “the oak grove of Mamre,” and many modern English Bibles have gone along with him.

As for terebinth, I don’t know who first introduced it, but it does not appear to go back very far. The earliest translation to which I have been able to trace it is the 1936 Soncino Press version of the Pentateuch by J.H. Hertz, a British rabbi.

So which is it: Plains, encampments, oaks or terebinths?

Plains and encampments, I think, can be dismissed immediately. They cannot possibly be the correct translation of elonei mamre.
That leaves oaks and terebinths. I’ll take oaks.

Here’s why. In the first place, while “oaks” is the oldest translation we have of elonei, “terebinths” is the most recent. The Septuagint rendition may represent a genuine tradition passed down from the time the book of Genesis was composed. The Soncino Press edition obviously does not.

Moreover, terebinths, whose small leaves indeed smell a bit like turpentine when crushed, may have an impressive-sounding name, but they are not very impressive in appearance. The terebinth is an evergreen shrub that rarely grows to more than 7 or 8 feet and is found all over Israel, where it is one of the most frequent plants in the hillside maquis; terebinths grow wild in my garden and can spread like weeds if you do not keep them in check. The common Palestinian oak, on the other hand, develops into a tall, stately tree. A whole forest or grove of such trees, now seen in only a few places but less rare in Abraham’s time, is an impressive sight indeed.

Would the Bible have bothered to point out that Abraham was sitting by some perfectly ordinary shrubs? And why single out “the terebinths of Mamre” when terebinths were everywhere? But if Mamre had a well-developed oak grove, that would have been a landmark worth referring to. The rudely monosyllabic oak wins this match against the mellifluous terebinth, hands down.

Judges 5-6
You will notice that here in judges just as we have shown above it is Edom and the Amalekites and Midianites who are harassing Israel.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Deborah
The accounts of Judges 4 and 5 tell the story of a battle at Kishon and Taanach whose waters lap the walls of ancient Megiddo. In alliance with Barak the king of Kadesh and some of Israel’s northern tribes after the death of Joshua in the time of Shamgar the son of Anath which is located on the north slope of Mount Tabor. Jabin the king of Canaan reigned at Hazor and the commander of his army was Sisera who lived in Haroseth-ha-goiim.

In context Joshua has just finished attacking the Perizzites of Adonai-zedek at Bezek, Kirith -arba, Kirathsepher, Sheshi, Ahiman and Talmai. The sons of Hobab the Kenite, father-in-law of Moses, went up with the sons of Judah into the wilderness of Negeb at the ascent of Arab and lived with the Amalakites. Judah did not take Ashkelon, Ekron or Bethel of the Hittites. Manassah did not subdue Beth Shean, Tanaach, Dor, Ibleam, or Meggido. Ephron did not drive out the Canaanites in Gezer, Zebulon did not drive out the inhabitants of Kitron or Nahalol. Asher did not drive out the inhabitants of Acco, Sidon, Ahlab, Achzib, Aphik or Rehob. Naphtali did not drive out the inhabitants of Beth Shemesh or Beth Anath. The Amorites drove back the Danites into the highlands. Meanwhile, in the south, battles continued with the Edomites, the Moabites and the Philistines.

Most of the then Egyptian territory shown in the adjoining map was up in arms and there were few allies among the southern tribes who were free to come to the assistance of Deborah and Barak. Israel, which the song of Deborah and Barak numbers at 40,000 spears, was unavailable except for forces from the tribes of Ephraim, Benjamin, Machir, Zebulon, Issachar, and Naphtali. The references to Kishons waters and Tanaach waters which lap at Meggido indicate that as Deborah’s forces moved down from Kadesh in the mountains, the enemy moved north, taking the southern route up to Megiddo where the battle was fought. With 900 iron-bound chariots involved on either side, it was clearly a sizable battle, likely to be historically recorded by both sides.

Going by the textual artifacts in this account, the battle took place sometime in the reign of Seti I, and may have resulted in the capture.

In Chapter six I would like you to notice that Yahovah sent an unnamed prophet to tell the people of their sin before He sent someone to deliver them. That someone was Gideon.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gideon_(Judges)
Gideon or Gedeon (Hebrew: גִּדְעוֹן, Modern Gid’on Tiberian Giḏʻôn), which means “Destroyer,” “Mighty warrior,” or “Feller (of trees)” was judge of the Hebrews.

As is the pattern throughout the book of Judges, the Israelites again turned away from God after 40 years of peace brought by Deborah’s victory over Canaan and were allowed to be attacked by the neighboring Midianites and Amalekites. God chose Gideon, a young man from an otherwise unremarkable clan from the tribe of Manasseh, to free the people of Israel and to condemn their worship of idols.

Very unsure of both himself and God’s command, he requested proof of God’s will by two miracles, performed on consecutive nights and the exact opposite of each other:
36Then Gideon said to God, “You say that you have decided to use me to rescue Israel. 37Well, I am putting some wool on the ground where we thresh the wheat. If in the morning there is dew only on the wool but not on the ground, then I will know that you are going to use me to rescue Israel.” 38That is exactly what happened. When Gideon got up early the next morning, he squeezed the wool and wrung enough dew out of it to fill a bowl with water. 39Then Gideon said to God, “Don’t be angry with me; let me speak just once more. Please let me make one more test with the wool. This time let the wool be dry, and the ground be wet.” 40 That night God did that very thing. The next morning the wool was dry, but the ground was wet with dew. (Judges 6:36-40, Good News Bible)

On God’s instruction, Gideon destroyed the town’s altar to the foreign god Baal and the symbol of the goddess Asherah beside it. He went on to send out messengers to gather together men from the tribes of Asher, Zebulun, and Naphtali, as well as his own tribe Manasseh in order to meet an armed force of the people of Midian and the Amalek that had crossed the Jordan River and were encamped in the Valley of Jezreel.

Ps 29-30
I find this week’s reading most interesting. IN Psalm 29:7 it says that That Yahovah divides the flames of fire and we have just read how Judah and the house of Israel will become flames and fire which will devour Edom which we have just read in Judges was attacking Israel at that time. In chapter 30 verse 5 we are reminded that His anger is but for a moment and this is a reminder to us for what is soon to come upon the whole house of Israel in punishment.

Mat 17:22 - 18:35
The Two-Drachma Tax
Mathew 17Verse 24: Yahshua and his disciples are in Capernaum, Peter’s hometown (Mark 1:29). Some Jewish people, whose job was to collect the “two-drachma” temple tax, came to Peter and asked, “Does your teacher not pay the two-drachma tax?” This was not a Roman tax, but a Jewish tax for the upkeep of the temple. It was based loosely on Exodus 30:11-16. So these folks were not your unpatriotic tax collectors that we usually read about who collected for the Romans; they were the very patriotic supporters of the temple who expected Israelites throughout the homeland and beyond to take part in supporting the temple service. So this question (”Does your teacher not pay the two-drachma tax?”) was probably a test to see how supportive Yahshua would be of the temple service in Jerusalem. Rumors were already circulating that he said disloyal things about the temple.

Peter answered in verse 25, “Yes.” When he and Yahshua were in the house away from the crowd, Yahshua asked Peter (in verse 25b), “What do you think, Simon? From whom do the kings of the earth collect customs or poll-tax, from their sons or from strangers?” So Yahshua is not going to let this go by without a lesson being taught.

He brings up a comparison - an analogy. There are kings on the earth who run their kingdoms with money raised from taxes. How are those taxes collected, Yahshua asked, from the king’s own children or from the rest of the citizens and inhabitants? The analogy pictures Yahovah as the king and the temple service as the running of his kingdom and makes a comparison between some people who are the sons of the king and some who are not the sons of the king.

Who Are the Sons and How Are They Free?
Peter answers Yahshua’ question in verse 26, “From strangers.” That is, kings collect taxes from the citizens and inhabitants that are not part of their family. That’s the right answer. So “Yahshua said to him, ‘Then the sons are exempt (=free).’”

So what is the point Yahshua is making? Who are the sons that are free and how are they free? Verse 27 gives us the decisive clue. Yahshua says to Peter: “However [that is, even though the sons are free] . . . take that and give it to them for you and Me.” In other words, you are free, Peter, and I am free, but we will pay the two-drachma temple tax anyway.

So the comparisons are between the kings of the earth and Yahovah and between the king’s sons and Yahshua with his disciples. Which raises a question: Who are the “strangers”? Who are the “citizens and inhabitants” that are not exempt - not free from the temple tax?

Keep in mind here: This temple tax has nothing to do with the Romans. This is a Jewish tax. So if Yahshua makes a distinction between the sons who are free and another group who are not free, he is making a distinction within Israel - among two groups of Israelites. This is what John the Baptist did before him. It is what Paul would do after him. John the Baptist called for Israel to repent and be a part of a new, true Israel, and not to boast, “We have Abraham as our father” (Matthew 3:9), as if mere israelite descent made one a child of Yahovah. Then Paul said in Romans 9:6-8, “Not all Israel is Israel . .. It is not the children of the flesh who are the children of Yahovah.”

So the answer is that the “strangers” - the “citizens and inhabitants” who are not free are the Israelite people who are rejecting Yahshua as the Son of Yahovah

Again in Chapter 18:18 we come across that scripture about binding and releasing which we covered last week.
In verse 19 we read 19 “Again I say to you that if two of you agree on earth concerning any matter that they ask, it shall be done for them by My Father in the heavens. 20 “For where two or three are gathered together in My Name, there I am in their midst.”

So many people have so many unanswered prayers. We are about to find out why.

Proverb 15: 29 יהוה is far from the wrong ones, But He hears the prayer of the righteous

Proverbs 28: 9 He who turns away his ear from hearing the Torah, Even his prayer is an abomination

So once again we must ask what is righteousness and how do we get it? The answer is found in
Psalm 119: 172 My tongue sings of Your word, For all Your commands are righteousness.

James 4:1 Where do fightings and strivings come from among you? Do they not come from your pleasures that battle in your members? 2 You desire, and do not have. You murder, and are jealous, and are unable to obtain. You strive and fight, and you do not possess, because you do not ask. 3 You ask and do not receive, because you ask evilly, in order to spend it on your pleasures. 4 Adulterers and adulteresses! Do you not know that friendship with the world is enmity with Elohim?1 Whoever therefore intends to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of Elohim.. 5 Or do you think that the Scripture speaks to no purpose? Does the Spirit which dwells in us intensely crave unto envy? 6 But He gives greater favour. Because of this He says, “Elohim resists the proud, but gives favour to the humble.”

1 John 2: 15 Do not love the world nor that which is in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. 16 Because all that is in the world – the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life – is not of the Father but is of the world. 17 And the world passes away, and the lust of it, but the one doing the desire of Elohim remains forever.

1 John 2:3 And by this we know that we know Him, if we guard His commands.. 4 The one who says, “I know Him,” and does not guard His commands, is a liar, and the truth is not in him

1 John 3: 22 And whatever we ask we receive from Him, because we guard His commands and do what is pleasing in His sight.

1 John 5:By this we know that we love the children of Elohim, when we love Elohim and guard His commands. 3 For this is the love for Elohim, that we guard His commands,1 and His commands are not heavy,

So we can see the reason so many do not have their prayers answered is because they do not keep the Commandments. When they do pray they ask for themselves and not for the Father’s will to be done, they ask evilly as James has said. If you keep the commandments and do not commit spiritual adultery by being friends to the world; that is by ignoring Torah, then your prayers will be answered.

When James says we ask evilly he is saying we are asking outside the will of Yahovah. Yahovah`s grace or answer to prayer is given to the humble, those who keep Torah. Pride and arrogance comes from rejecting Torah and picking and choosing what commandment you want to keep. Most people think they are obeying the commandments until you show them that the 4th commandment to keep Holy the Sabbath is the seventh day or Saturday; it also includes the keeping the Holy Days which are found in Leviticus 23 and we are not to add any others to this. When you do add to Lev 23, this is spiritual adultery. The 4th commandment also includes keeping the Sabbatical and Jubilee years. Aviv 2009- Aviv 2010 was a Sabbatical year, how many of you kept it by not planting and storing away food for the whole year? Aviv 1995-Aviv 1996 was the 49th year Sabbatical year and Aviv 1996- Aviv 1997 was the last Jubilee year, how many of you kept these two years Holy and did not plant and stored food for three years at this time.

If you are not keeping the commandments as we have seen, then if you are not keeping all of them, you can expect your prayers will not be answer. This is also how we are to become righteous, repent of our past sins and begin to obey the commandments as shown to you in Torah.

James 5: 13 Is any of you suffering evil? Let him pray. Is anyone in good spirits? Let him sing psalms. 14 Is anyone among you sick? Let him call for the elders of the assembly, and let them pray over him, having anointed him with oil in the Name of the Master. 15 And the prayer of the belief shall save the sick, and the Master shall raise him up. And if he has committed sins, he shall be forgiven. 16 Confess your trespasses to one another, and pray for one another, so that you are healed. The earnest prayer of a righteous one accomplishes much. 17 Ěliyahu was a man with feelings like us, and he prayed earnestly that it would not rain. And it did not rain on the land for three years and six months. 18 And he prayed again, and the heaven gave rain, and the land brought forth its fruit.

The earnest prayers of the righteous do much but the prayers of the unrighteous are an abomination. Who are you going to let pray over you? Not just anyone that comes along. A lady the other day wanted to pray over me. I told her the prayers of the unrighteous are as an abomination to Yahovah. She then cursed me and left. She was not righteous and I was not about to let someone who prays to demons pray over me.

Last scripture is how often shall we forgive our brother. Yahshua says 70 times 7 which is 490. This is the equivalent of half a millennial cycle. But this also refers to what everyone knew was the coming of the Messiah according to the prophecy of Daniel in chapter 9:24-27 about the 70 weeks. What Yahshua is saying is that we shall forgive our brother until the Messiah comes. And then He goes on to show an example of someone who would not forgive even though they had been forgiven a huge debt.

That someone is you and the debt of all your sins are forgiven and paid for by Yahovah. So if He is willing to write off your debt for your sins, then you too ought to do the same to those who have done less against you.

We are also going to continue to study the 613 laws of Torah which we can read at http://www.jewfaq.org/613.htm
We are doing 7 laws each week and this week we shall study laws 86-92. We also have commentary from http://theownersmanual.net/The_Owners_Manual_02_The_Law_of_Love.Torah

86 Not to commit incest with one’s sister (Lev. 18:9) (CCN127). See Prohibited Marriages and Illegitimate Children.
9 ‘The nakedness of your sister, the daughter of your father, or the daughter of your mother, whether born at home or elsewhere, their nakedness you do not uncover

Do not commit incest with your sister. “The nakedness of your sister, the daughter of your father, or the daughter of your mother, whether born at home or elsewhere, their nakedness you shall not uncover.” (Leviticus 18:9) Now the instructions are getting a bit more real-world practical. Sisters and half-sisters are now taken off the eligible-wife-material roster. Abram, you’ll recall, had married his half-sister, Sarai. This was not an uncommon practice in the patriarchal era, when local populations were sparse and the gene pool was still relatively deep. But here, half a millennium later, we see Yahweh prohibiting such unions among the children of Israel. God, having designed our DNA, knew that successive generations of inbreeding could bring debilitating recessive genes to the surface, making the population as a whole more susceptible to a wide range of hereditary diseases and genetic abnormalities. Like many of these mitzvot, the reason for God’s instruction would not be understood for thousands of years, but those who followed the “Owner’s Manual” carefully in the meantime were nevertheless protected in spite of their lack of scientific knowledge.

87 Not to commit incest with one’s father’s wife’s daughter (Lev. 18:11) (CCN128). See Prohibited Marriages and Illegitimate Children.

11 ‘The nakedness of your father’s wife’s daughter, brought forth by your father, she is your sister, you do not uncover her nakedness.
Do not commit incest with your father’s wife’s daughter. “The nakedness of your father’s wife’s daughter, begotten by your father—she is your sister—you shall not uncover her nakedness.” (Leviticus 18:11) Is there an echo in here? Under normal circumstances, the object here would be the same as in #86. But if the father has remarried or taken a second wife, a daughter of that union (i.e., one’s step-sister) is also included in the do-not-marry list. According to the Inventor of our human genome, the relationship is still too close to avoid weakening the gene pool.

88 Not to commit incest with one’s son’s daughter (Lev. 18:10) (CCN119) (Note: CC treats this and the next as one commandment; however, Rambam treats them as two). See Prohibited Marriages and Illegitimate Children.

10 ‘The nakedness of your son’s daughter or your daughter’s daughter, their nakedness you do not uncover, for theirs is your own nakedness

Do not commit incest with your son’s daughter. “The nakedness of your son’s daughter or your daughter’s daughter, their nakedness you shall not uncover; for theirs is your own nakedness.” (Leviticus 18:10) Chafetz Chayim’s list of the 613 mitzvot lists this one and #89 together, while Maimonides lists them separately. They’re way ahead of me. I’m still scratching my head trying to figure out who would be sick enough to want to have sex with his own granddaughter. But we should not neglect the overall context of the passage. Yahweh explains why He took the trouble to describe the filth the Israelites were not to roll around in: “Then Yahweh spoke to Moses, saying, “Speak to the children of Israel, and say to them: ‘I am Yahweh your God.

According to the doings of the land of Egypt, where you dwelt, you shall not do; and according to the doings of the land of Canaan, where I am bringing you, you shall not do; nor shall you walk in their ordinances. You shall observe My judgments and keep My ordinances, to walk in them: I am Yahweh your God. You shall therefore keep My statutes and My judgments, which if a man does, he shall live by them: I am Yahweh.” (Leviticus 18:1-5) They had apparently seen all of these aberrant behaviors being practiced in Egypt, and they would see them again taking place in Canaan (that is, if they let the inhabitants of the Land live long enough to observe their deviant lifestyles first hand—something they were not supposed to do). God in His wisdom knew that it wouldn’t be sufficient to simply say “Be faithful to your own wife” after the children of Israel had been exposed to pagan sexual practices in Egypt for four hundred years. He had to spell it out.

89 Not to commit incest with one’s daughter’s daughter (Lev. 18:10) (CCN119) (Note: CC treats this and the previous as one commandment; however, Rambam treats them as two). See Prohibited Marriages and Illegitimate Children.

10 ‘The nakedness of your son’s daughter or your daughter’s daughter, their nakedness you do not uncover, for theirs is your own nakedness

Do not commit incest with your daughter’s daughter. “The nakedness of your son’s daughter or your daughter’s daughter, their nakedness you shall not uncover; for theirs is your own nakedness.” (Leviticus 18:10) Forget the DNA thing for a moment. Wanting to have sex with someone two generations removed is just plain creepy; which explains why Satan promotes the idea. In 622, Muhammad, who was fifty at the time, married a six-year-old girl named Aisha, the daughter of his best (okay, his only) friend, Abu Bakr. Even if he waited a while to consummate the marriage, there’s still only one accurate word for that kind of behavior: pedophilia. Allah loves it; Yahweh hates it. By the way, the highest rate of close-family marriage in the world to this very day is Muhammad’s homeland, Saudi Arabia, where 56.8 percent of all marriages are between close relatives.

90 Not to commit incest with one’s daughter (this is not explicitly in the Torah but is inferred from other explicit commands that would include it) (CCN120). See Prohibited Marriages and Illegitimate Children.

Do not commit incest with your daughter. Tracey Rich of Judaism 101 observes that this is not found explicitly in the Torah but is inferred from other commands that would include it. I would single out Leviticus 18:17 as a proof text—“You shall not uncover the nakedness of a woman and her daughter.” If you have a daughter, it is axiomatic that you have at one point “uncovered the nakedness” of her mother, whether or not she is actually your wife. I’d say the mitzvah is more than “inferred.” It’s commanded.

91 Not to commit incest with one’s fathers sister (Lev. 18:12) (CCN129). See Prohibited Marriages and Illegitimate Children.
12 ‘The nakedness of your father’s sister you do not uncover, she is your father’s flesh.

Do not commit incest with your mother’s sister. “You shall not uncover the nakedness of your mother’s sister, for she is near of kin to your mother.” (Leviticus 18:13) There went the apparent loophole left by verse 12: your aunt on your mother’s side is out of bounds as well. The odd phrasing is not due to the fact that there is no generic word for “aunt” in Hebrew (it’s dodah, used in verse 14—see #93). Yahweh is just leaving no stone unturned—a man’s father’s sister and his mother’s sister are both forbidden as sexual partners.

Do not commit incest with your father’s sister. “You shall not uncover the nakedness of your father’s sister; she is near of kin to your father.” (Leviticus 18:12) In other words, do not marry (or merely have sexual relations with) your aunt on your father’s side, even if your uncle has passed away and she is free to remarry: she is too near a relation to you to be genetically safe.

92 Not to commit incest with one’s mother’s sister (Lev. 18:13) (CCN130). See Prohibited Marriages and Illegitimate Children.

13 ‘The nakedness of your mother’s sister you do not uncover, for she is your mother’s flesh.
Do not commit incest with your mother’s sister. “You shall not uncover the nakedness of your mother’s sister, for she is near of kin to your mother.” (Leviticus 18:13) There went the apparent loophole left by verse 12: your aunt on your mother’s side is out of bounds as well. The odd phrasing is not due to the fact that there is no generic word for “aunt” in Hebrew (it’s dodah, used in verse 14—see #93). Yahweh is just leaving no stone unturned—a man’s father’s sister and his mother’s sister are both forbidden as sexual partners.
