Am Y’israel Chai

A draft of the summary statement that will be released at the conclusion of the 70-nation conference in Paris on Sunday has been leaked. As you will see below, this communique is going to call for the division of the land of Israel, for the establishment of a Palestinian state, for the 1967 borders to serve as the basis for final negotiations between the Israelis and the Palestinians and for the condemnation of any officials that refuse to support a two-state solution.
Of course this comes on the heels of U.N. Security Council Resolution 2334, which many believe represented America’s greatest betrayal of Israel. Israeli government officials are publicly warning that there is a possibility the principles agreed upon at this conference may form the basis for another Security Council resolution before Jan. 20, and this is something we should all be watching for very closely.
Haaretz exclusively obtained a copy of a draft of the summary statement that will be released following the conference on Sunday, and you can read it for yourself right here. Reportedly, there was a major meeting of diplomats last Friday, and the latest draft reflects feedback that was received from those diplomats during that meeting:
Last Friday, there was a meeting of senior diplomats from the dozens of Western and Arab countries that will attend the conference. The French delegate, Pierre Vimont, presented them with the first draft of the conference’s summary communiqué and asked for comments.
According to Western diplomats, Vimont said France wants to reach a consensus among the participating states on a balanced statement that would stress the centrality of the two-state solution to the international community, but would take this month’s transfer of presidential power in the United States into account.
In many ways, the document closely tracks the language of U.N. Security Council Resolution 2334. Here are some of the things that really stood out to me in the draft.
– It makes a clear commitment to “two states, Israel and Palestine, living side by side in peace and security.”
– It insists that there must be an end to “the occupation that began in 1967”.
– It calls on Israeli and Palestinian leaders to publicly renew their commitment to a two-state solution.
– It also calls on Israeli and Palestinian leaders to publicly renounce any of their officials who do not support a two-state solution.
– It states that the 70 nations gathered in Paris only recognize the June 4, 1967 borders and that the only future changes to those borders they will recognize will come as the result of negotiations between the Israelis and the Palestinians. And just like U.N. Security Council Resolution 2334, Jerusalem is specifically mentioned. So according to this document, Israel does not own the Wailing Wall, the Temple Mount, a single inch of the West Bank or a single inch of East Jerusalem.
– The summary statement will also call on all countries to clearly distinguish between the state of Israel and territories that would belong to the Palestinians based upon the 1967 borders in all of their dealings.
Needless to say, this is a horribly anti-Israel document, and the Israeli government is already strongly denouncing it.
At this point, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is most alarmed about the possibility that this summary statement could be used as the basis for another U.N. Security Council resolution just a few days later.
Netanyahu fears that the final communiqué of the Paris conference will be adopted next Monday by the EU foreign ministers’ council and the foreign ministers of the Quartet, and might also be the basis for another resolution at the Security Council, which is scheduled to convene next Tuesday for its monthly debate on the Israeli-Palestinian issue.
“We find ourselves only a few days before the Paris conference and, only a few days later, a Security Council debate,” Netanyahu said at the start of the weekly cabinet meeting on Sunday. “We are making a great effort to prevent another Security Council resolution.”
By organizing this conference and trying to lead the way in the effort to divide the land of Israel, France is in danger of greatly cursing itself.
Recently, I was asked why God cares so much about Israel. I think a very basic illustration can help us to understand this better.
If you want to enrage any man, just go after his home and his family. This will be true in just about any culture all across the globe.
Similarly, when the rest of the world attempts to divide the land of Israel and hurt the Jewish people, they are going after the family Jesus was born into and the city where He will rule and reign for 1000 years after He returns.
When Jesus was being crucified, Roman soldiers divided up his clothing, a deeply disgraceful act.
But now, just before Jesus returns, the entire globe is trying to divide up both His land and the one city on the entire planet He has identified as His own (Matt. 5:35).
Why are our leaders being so foolish? In the Scriptures, God specifically warns us that in the last days, He will judge the nations for dividing up His land. This is what Joel 3:1-2 says in the Modern English Version…
In those days and at that time, when I restore the fortunes of Judah and Jerusalem, I will gather all the nations, and bring them down to the Valley of Jehoshaphat. I will enter into judgment with them there regarding My people and My heritage Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations; they have also divided up My land.
Those who bless Israel will be blessed, and those who curse Israel will be cursed.
And the 70 nations that are gathering in Paris, France on Sunday are literally in danger of cursing the entire planet.
Let us just pray there will not be another U.N. Security Council resolution following this conference, because that would be absolutely disastrous for Israel, for the United States and for the rest of the globe.

A new video showing two hostages pleading for their lives has been circulated online by the Afghan Taliban. The two men were kidnapped near the American University in Afghanistan five months ago.
by, Deutsche Welle | Blazing CatFur
The video, released by Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid on Wednesday, is the first apparent proof that the two hostages are still alive after being kidnapped on August 7.
Timothy Weeks, an Australian citizen, and his American colleague Kevin King were abducted by gunmen dressed as police near the the American University of Afghanistan, where both men were working as professors.
Shortly after their kidnapping, US Special Operations forces launched a mission, approved by US President Barack Obama, to rescue them. But when forces raided the supposed location of the hostages, they weren’t there, the Pentagon said in September.
Hostage appeals to Trump for help
In the video, which according to Weeks was made on January 1, the two men urged president-elect Donald Trump to secure their release. Weeks said the Taliban is demanding that the US release prisoners at Bagram air field and at Pul-e-Charkhi prison in Kabul in exchange for the release of the two men.
“They are being held there illegally and the Taliban has asked for them to be released in our exchange. If they are not exchanged for us then we we will be killed,” Weeks said.
“Donald Trump, sir, please, I ask you, please, this is in your hands, I ask you please to negotiate with the Taliban. If you do not negotiate with them, we will be killed,” he said.

Jabhat al-Nusra Terrorist, Funded by the Obama Administration, Sends His Two Young Daughters on Suicide Missions
Footage shows a fanatic lecturing the two children, seven and nine, in Damascus
They are dressed in coats and hats before being embraced by burka-clad woman
Seven-year-old then thought to have been killed in explosion at a police station
The blast in Damascus, the Syrian capital, wounded three police officers

This is the moment jihadi parents kissed their daughters goodbye shortly before one of them walked into a Syrian police station and was blown up by a remote detonator.
Footage shows a male fanatic lecturing the two children, seven and nine, about how to carry out suicide bomb attacks before they are embraced by a woman in a burka.
A short time later, the seven-year-old is thought to have walked into a police station in Syria’s capital, Damascus, before being killed in an explosion.
With music in the background and sitting in front of a black and white flag, the ranting extremist holds the girls in his arms as he brainwashes them.
Both girls then say ‘Allahu Akbar’ before separate footage shows them dressed in coats and woolly hats as they embrace their mother and leave the room.
A short time later, on December 16, a seven-year-old girl calmly walked into a Damascus police station before being killed in a bomb blast that also injured three officers.
Syrian journalists have reported the two adults as being husband and wife and parents to the two girls. They also linked one of the youngsters to the explosion on Friday.
In one video, the mother repeatedly hugs the seven-year-old, named as Islam, and the older girl, named as Fatima.
A man behind the camera asks the woman why she is sending her daughters to jihad when they are so young.
She replies that ‘no one is young when it comes to jihad as every Muslim is supposed to participate in jihad.’
He then prays for Allah to accept the sacrifice the woman is making
In the second video the man believed to be the father asks one of the girls what she is ‘going to do today’ before she replies that she is going to carry out a suicide bombing in Damascus.
In an apparent reference to the bus evacuation of rebel fighters and residents from Aleppo last week, the man asks one of the children: ‘Shouldn’t you leave fighting to the men? Or did all of them flee in the green buses?’.
He later adds: ‘You are not going to be afraid because you are going to the Heavens, right?’.
The girl on the left replies simply: ‘Yes’.
Both children then say Allah Akbar on the man’s request before he starts saying prayers.
It is not yet clear which jihadist group was behind the attack. The explosion in the bustling Midan neighbourhood of the Syrian capital wounded three police officers, said the Al-Watan daily, which is close to the government.
‘A seven-year-old girl entered the police station, carrying a belt that was detonated from afar,’ the paper posted on its Facebook page.
A police source told Al-Watan that the little girl had appeared lost and asked to use the bathroom when the explosives went off.
Although rebel groups have fired rockets and mortar rounds into the capital, explosions inside the city itself are rare.
Syrian state news agency SANA said earlier there were preliminary reports about a ‘terrorist explosion at the Midan police station in Damascus’.
The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights confirmed there had been a blast in Midan but said it could not specify the cause.
Observatory head Rami Abdel Rahman told AFP that ‘one woman’ was killed in the blast, but it remained unclear whether she was a suicide bomber or a bystander.
In early 2012, a suicide bomber killed 26 people when he blew himself up in Midan. More than 310,000 people have died since Syria’s conflict broke out in 2011.
The attack happened in the Syrian capital, President Bashar al-Assad’s stronghold of Damascus.
A brutal battle to retake the city of Aleppo appears to have come to an after a ceasefire and evacuation of residents was agreed with rebels.
But Assad’s forces are still fighting insurgents near the capital while large areas of the country remain in rebel control in the northwestern countryside and in the far south.
Peace on Earth will only be achievable once Muslim parents begin to love their own children more than they hate us.
Only the Little Girl Died in the Blast Carried Out by the Devout Followers of Islam
by, The Clarion Project | RT News
Damascus, Syria: An eight-year-old girl carried out a suicide bombing attack at a Damascus police station, according to SANA (the Syrian Arab News Agency) and as reported by RT.
The agency cited a source in the Damascus Police Command that reported, “Terrorists sent an eight-year-old girl with a small homemade bomb to a police station in the Midan neighborhood. When she entered the building, militants activated the explosive device with a remote control, the child died at the scene, one police officer suffered light injuries.”

The bombing has not been claimed by any group as yet. The girl reportedly came to the police station and said she was lost.
The blast killed her and lightly injured one policeman.

‘..59 out of 88 Recently Arrested al-Qaeda Terrorists Were Graduates of the “Saudi Jihadist Rehabilitation Program”..’
by, Judicial Watch | Doug Ross @ Director Blue
An Al Qaeda operative incarcerated at the U.S. military prison in Guantanamo has confirmed what Judicial Watch has been reporting for years, that a Saudi Arabian “rehabilitation” program that supposedly reforms jihadists is really a terrorist training camp. The U.S. has released dozens of Gitmo captives to the comical jihadist rehab and earlier this year considered sending another, senior Al Qaeda boss Ghassan Abdullah al-Sharbi, a dangerous Saudi national with a U.S. college education.
During a hearing before President Obama’s Gitmo parole board, al-Sharbi said “you guys want to send me back to Saudi Arabia because you believe there is a de-radicalization program on the surface, true. You are 100 percent right, there is a strong externally…a strong de-radicalization program, but make no mistake, underneath there is a hidden radicalization program.” The testimony was delivered months ago, but was recently declassified by the Department of Defense (DOD), which maintains that al-Sharbi is a committed jihadist and threat to the U.S., its interests and allies. The panel denied al-Sharbi’s petition for release, but has granted many others recently.
Saudi rehab centre used to recruit & train jihadists:

In his quest to clear out the prison and close it, Obama has embarked on a frenzy releasing droves of terrorists jailed at the U.S. Naval base in southeastern Cuba. More than 100, including Osama bin Laden’s bodyguards, have been released to the Saudi rehab program, officially known as the Prince Mohammed bin Naif Counseling and Care Center. It specializes in “spreading the concept of moderateness and rejecting immoderate way of thinking” by using art therapy, video games, exercise and sports to de-radicalize terrorists. Obama has praised the bogus Saudi terrorist rehab program, even though the Pentagon’s Defense Intelligence Agency disclosed years ago that many of the Gitmo detainees who rejoin terrorist missions after leaving the military prison returned to “the fight” after graduating from Saudi rehab.
Among them is Al Qaeda leader Ibrahim al-Rubaysh, the poster child for the Saudi rehab’s failures. Years after releasing al-Rubaysh from Gitmo, the U.S. offered a $5 million reward for information on the whereabouts of the Saudi rehab grad. The State Department coined the “senior leader” of Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) a Specially Designated Global Terrorist, revealing that “he serves as a senior advisor for AQAP operational planning and is involved in the planning of attacks.” Judicial Watch reported this two years ago, citing the State Department announcement describing al-Rubaysh as a senior AQAP sharia official since 2013 who has made public statements calling on Muslims to wage war against the United States. Many others have returned to terrorism after completing terrorist reform school.
RARE look inside Saudi de-radicalization program:
This hasn’t deterred Obama from sending more Gitmo terrorists to the laughable de-radicalization program. Earlier this year the administration transferred nine Yemeni captives to Saudi Arabia and just a few weeks ago it approved the transfer of an Al Qaeda bomb maker, Jabran al Qahtani, that U.S. authorities believe will reengage in terrorism. The president’s Gitmo parole panel, officially known as the Periodic Review Board (PRB), specifically mentions the Mohammed bin Naif Counseling and Care Center in its final determination to transfer al Qahtani and states its “confidence in the efficacy of the Saudi rehabilitation program.” Al Qahtani’s “credible desire to participate in the Saudi rehabilitation program and reintegrate into society” also played a role in the parole board’s decision to release him. The PRB found that “the risk the detainee presents can be adequately mitigated by transfer for prosecution and rehabilitation in Saudi Arabia.”
Though al-Sharbi will remain at Gitmo, the fact remains that he disclosed damaging information about a fake Middle Eastern reform program the administration has used to free a multitude of dangerous terrorists. Based on his DOD file, al-Sharibi shouldn’t have even been considered for transfer. With a degree in electrical engineering from an Arizona college, al-Sharibi operated within the United States organizing sophisticated terrorist cells and conducting educational directives involved with mission planning. He has attended an Al Qaeda training camp and was selected by the terrorist group to a receive a special remote control detonation training to carry out attacks on U.S. forces, his DOD file states. “Detainee has demonstrated a commitment to jihad, has links to key facilitators in the Al-Qaida international terrorist network, and has participated in terrorist training,” according to the defense assessment, which also says al-Sharibi poses a high risk to western interests.

The Islamic State terror group is defending the village of Dabiq in northern Syria as U.S.-backed Syrian rebels launch attacks, seeking to liberate the village that IS believes will be the center of an apocalyptic battle between Christians and Islamists.
“If matters proceed as planned, within 48 hours we will be in Dabiq,” Ahmed Osman, commander of the Sultan Murad Free Syrian Army, told Reuters on Monday.
The Independent reports that at least 15 Turkish and Syrian rebels have been killed in the fighting near Dabiq, but a much fiercer battle is expected to take place for the village which is in the center of IS’ propaganda operation.
The Islamic militants believe that Dabiq, which they first captured in August 2014, will be the host of a major battle between Islamic and Christian forces that will signal the beginning of the apocalypse.
ARA News added that U.S.-led coalition warplanes have been aiding the Syrian rebels with airstrikes, killing and wounding over 20 of the militants.
IS has been losing its grip on a number of towns across Iraq and Syria, with additional reports that Turkey-backed rebels have captured areas in the northern countryside of Aleppo.
“Backed by an air cover from the coalition, rebel fighters of the Euphrates Shield expelled ISIS from the eastern suburb of Maree town,” rebel spokesman Salih al-Zein said.
“The rebels have also captured the Akhtarin village after heavy clashes with ISIS,” he added.
Besides being the center of an apocalyptic final battle that IS predicts, Dabiq also lends its name to the monthly stylized propaganda magazine that IS publishes, which explains its ideology and celebrates terror attacks that have been carried out around the world.
Osman added that IS officials have sent close to 800 additional fighters to defend the village from advancing FSA rebels, but the terror group has been unable to stop several other villages near Dabiq from being recaptured.
Rebel and U.S.-backed forces are also preparing to attack and recapture two other IS strongholds, namely Mosul in Iraq and Raqqa in Syria, which would also be a massive blow to the terror group’s ambitions.
The apocalyptic beliefs of IS have been explored by a number of counter-terrorism experts, including Sebastian Gorka, author of The New York Times best-selling book Defeating Jihad: The Winnable War and chair of military theory at the Marine Corps University.
Gorka said at the first annual The Bridge conference for the persecuted church hosted by International Christian Concern in July that an English-language translation of IS’ former name was the ‘Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham,’ with the latter part of the name bearing the most significance.
“Like every religion, Islam has an eschatology. It has a story of the End Times. Just as in Christian eschatology, the talks of a final period of tribulation or judgment day and a series of battles between the believers and non-believers, Islam has the same,” Gorka said, according to The Christian Post
“Everybody will be resurrected and judged by Allah at the End Times. But prior to that judgment, there will be a series of battles in al-Sham. The pivotal jihad, the last jihad will occur in this territory.”

A Pakistani Christian family was tied up and beaten by a group of Muslims who stormed their home last month looking to force the family to convert to Islam. But when the family refused to renounce their faith, their youngest daughter was abducted, raped and has yet to return home.
The London-based charity British Pakistani Christian Association has come to the aid of the Masih family, a family of 10 Christians caught in the grips of bonded labor (modern day slavery) near the city of Kasur in Eastern Pakistan.
According to BPCA, the family lived in a small home made of mud and had been constantly pressured by local Muslims to convert to Islam, as they were the only family in the neighborhood who hadn’t embraced Islam.
On the night of Sept. 15, a group of six Muslim men and a Muslim woman stormed the family’s home with guns, sticks and metal rods and severely beat members of the Christian family.
The group of intruders hoped that the family’s pain and suffering would cause them to reconsider their prior refusals to convert to Islam. Despite the pain, the family again refused to deny Christ and convert to Islam.
After the family refused to convert, the Muslims grew enraged and tied up and blindfolded all but two of the family members.
As the family consists of six daughters and two sons, the Muslims dragged the family’s 17-year-old daughter, Jameela, and 20-year-old son, Arif, and threw them into the back of a van parked outside of the home.
Arif, who was eventually able to escape out an open door while no one was looking, told BPCA that he and Jameela were taken to an unknown building in an unknown location that he later figured out was a mansion of some sort.
Arif explained that when they arrived at the mansion, they were both tortured separately. Despite the torture, Arif again refused to convert to Islam. While he could hear the screams of his sister, one of the captors told Arif that other Muslim men were taking turns raping his sister and that all he had to do to save his her was embrace Islam. However, he again refused to renounce Christ.
As the sun rose the next morning, Arif took advantage of an opportunity to escape when his blindfold slipped and he noticed that the door was left open with no one around monitoring him.
It took hours for Arif to return home, as he had to walk most of the way before he caught a ride on a rickshaw.
Having been taken so far from home, Arif is not able to recall the location of the mansion that he and his sister were taken too. He also believes that his sister was taken to another location because he did not hear her screams before he escaped the mansion.
The family is now living in a safehouse sponsored by BPCA in Pakistan. That is the same safehouse that another Christian family trapped in bonded labor stayed at while BPCA worked to secure their emancipation.
“This family is deeply traumatized but safe now. We will now begin the arduous task of helping them rebuild their lives in an atmosphere of safety,” BPCA Chairman Wilson Chowdhry said in a statement. “However, the captured daughter Jameela may well never be found and her malicious kidnapping is causing great anguish and despair. [For] Muslim despots [to be able to] kidnap Christian girls with such impunity is a blight on Pakistan’s international reputation.”
According to a 2014 report by the NGO Movement of Solidarity and Peace, as many as 700 Christian girls in Pakistan are kidnapped and forced into Islamic marriages every year. Many times, the police fail to take action and claim that the child left home and entered into Islamic marriage of her own will.
After the attack and kidnapping, the Masih family first went to their Muslim landlord, who not only told them to talk to the police but ordered them to go back to work the day after. The family attempted to file charges with the police. However, local police in Kasur refused to register the family’s case.
The police department was even pressured by Pakistani Sen. Kamran Michael to register the police report, however, Deputy Superintendent Abdul Qayoom Gondal refuses to register the case.
BPCA has hired a lawyer to take on the Masih’s case. According to BPCA, the lawyer was able to reach an agreement for the police to do a preliminary investigation. Thanks to corroborating witness statements, it is likely that a First Information Report will eventually be filed.
According to an application for a FIR, the perpetrators involved in the beating and kidnapping are Ghulam Muhamad, Ilyas Muhamed, Irfan Muhamad, M. Boota, M. Ashraf, M. Haroon and Umraan Bibi, all of whom are relatives.
BPCA reports that the assault on the Christian family occurred after the mother, 50-year-old Mumtaz Masih, was recently harassed by Muslim women in the neighborhood who were again looking to convert her and her family to Islam.
Irritated by the fact that her family kept getting harassed, Mumtaz and the women got into a heated exchange in which Mumtaz allegedly insulted the Muslim women, which could have triggered the violent attacks.
BPCA has launched a petition calling on the Pakistani government to end “the mass abduction, rape and forced marriage of Christians and other minority women, through tougher laws and stronger policing protocol.”
Additionally, BPCA is accepting online donations to aid persecuted Christians like the Masih family.
FBI REPORT: A Prince George’s County man sought out American military personnel to Murder on behalf of the Islamic State
by, Deb Belt | Bowie Patch | h/t Glen Roberts @ Trop
HYATTSVILLE, MD — A Hyattsville man who came to the United States from Bangladesh as a child is in federal custody on a charge that he tried to help the terrorist organization ISIS by planning to kill an American military member.
Nelash Mohamed Das, 24, was charged by federal criminal complaint Monday with attempting to provide material support and resources to ISIS or the Islamic State. Federal authorities say that for the past year, Das used social media to express his support for the Islamic State, including support for terrorist attacks in Paris, France, and San Bernardino, CA.
“Individuals intent on carrying out violence in the name of foreign terrorist organizations pose one of the most concerning threats that law enforcement faces today and stopping these offenders before they are able to act is our highest priority,” said Assistant Attorney General Carlin in a news release.
On Oct. 26, 2015, Das tweeted the name of an individual and the city where they lived, stating that the individual “aspires to kill Muslims.” Das knew that the individual hoped to become a member of the U.S. military. ISIS members and supporters have posted identifying information about U.S. military personnel in hopes that follower would carry out attacks against them, the FBI says.
The affidavit alleges that Das was advertising the individual’s identity and whereabouts in order to inspire violence against that individual.
On Jan. 30, 2016, Das reportedly tweeted a picture of an AK-47 assault rifle along with the message, “This is more than just a gun. This is a ticket to Jannah,” a reference to the Islamic concept of paradise.
According to the affidavit, Das attended classes at a firing range in Prince George’s County to practice firing weapons, and submitted his fingerprints to obtain a handgun permit.
In May 2016, Das met a someone working for the FBI whom he believed was also a supporter of ISIS. Das later told the unidentified source that he wanted to kill a particular military member who lived in Prince George’s County, and whose identifying information Das had obtained the prior year from a list posted online by ISIL. After that, he hoped to travel overseas for ISIS.
In a meeting on Sept. 11, 2016, Das confirmed that he was committed “100 percent” to conducting an attack and, “That’s like my goal in life,” according to court documents. In a meeting the following day, Das asked that ISIS pay him for future killings of U.S. military personnel, but added that he would do it for free, as well.
On Sept. 28, 2016, Das and the informant drove to a firearms store in Virginia, where Das purchased ammunition and was given bogus information on a target with the expectation that he would be paid $80,000 for the attack. Das was arrested at the scene of the planned attack two days later by FBI agents.
Das was ordered to be detained pending a detention hearing, which is scheduled for Thursday, Oct. 6, in U.S. District Court in Greenbelt.
Das faces a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison if convicted.
According to the affidavit, Das was admitted to the U.S. in 1995 and is a legal permanent resident.
