Dramatic Developments in Israel’s Relations with Arab States
This week saw some dramatic developments in relations between Israel and the Sunni-Arab states of the Middle East. Prominent Kuwaiti commentator Abdullah Al-Hadlaq gave an interview Sunday with the Alrai TV channel in which he said, among other things, “When the State of Israel was established in 1948, there was no state called ‘Palestine. There is no occupation. There is a people returning to its promised land. Like it or not, Israel is an independent and sovereign state,” he added. “It exists, and it has a seat at the United Nations, and most peace-loving and democratic countries recognize it." He added that the only governments which don’t recognize Israel are "the countries of tyranny and oppression."

Elsewhere, it emerged this week that Secretary General of the Muslim World League Dr. Muhammad Abdul-Kareem al-Issa, a former Saudi justice minister, and Khalid bin Mohammed Al Angari, a former Saudi education minister and current Saudi ambassador to France, visited the Grand Synagogue in Paris on Monday. The two men were hosted by France’s Chief Rabbi Haim Korsia and the synagogue’s rabbi Moshe Sebbag, who showed their guests a Torah scroll and various other religious ornaments and architectural features of the historic building.

“This was very exciting,” Sebbag told the Jerusalem Post on Wednesday. “This was their first time in a synagogue, and I was frankly surprised that they came.”

In related news, reports emerged on Wednesday that Riyadh has expressed interest in buying roughly $7 billion worth of guided missiles and other weapons from US defense conglomerates Raytheon and Boeing. However, the US State Department must still give its approval to the deals and defense analysts cautioned that it might be several months or longer before a contract is signed.

A Start

  • This short video clip reminds us of what Rabbi Paul writes concerning his fellow Israelites; “…But their minds were closed. For to this day the same veil remains at the reading of the old covenant. It has not been lifted, because only in Christ can it be removed. And even to this day when Moses is read, a veil covers their hearts. But whenever anyone turns to the Lord, the veil is taken away.”(2 Corinthians 3:15) VIDEO (Click)

    When you hear Knesset Speaker Yuli Edelstein it seems that God is starting to lift the veil covering the hearts of many Israelis today concerning Yeshua the Messiah. Yuli is a voice that most probably expresses the thoughts of many in Israel who are starting to realise that real Bible believing Christians are in reality Israel’s friends and that Yeshua they worship is indeed Israel’s Messiah.

    Also it is a reminder what Rabbi Paul also writes; “I do not want you to be ignorant of this mystery, brothers, so that you will not be conceited: A hardening in part has come to Israel, until the full number of the Gentiles has come in. And so all Israel will be saved, as it is written: “The Deliverer will come from Zion, He will remove godlessness from Jacob.”(Romans 11:25-26)

    It is a partial hardening, not a complete one, which means that God is going to soften the hearts of many in Israel towards Yeshua before He comes back. We know that God has a remnant foreknown to Him, chosen by His grace that will come to know and believe in their Messiah in the future and reign with Him in His Millennial Kingdom. The veil over their hearts will have been completely removed. Even now the veil is being removed for many in Israel. In that day when “all Israel will be saved” ungodliness will be banished from Israel.

    As the prophet Zechariah writes; “In that day there will be inscribed on the bells of the horses, “HOLY TO THE LORD.” And the cooking pots in the Lord’s house will be like the bowls before the altar. Every cooking pot in Jerusalem and in Judah will be holy to the Lord of hosts; and all who sacrifice will come and take of them and boil in them. And there will no longer be a Canaanite in the house of the Lord of hosts in that day.” (Zechariah 14:20-21

Torah Institute Paves Way for Genetic Testing as Proof of Jewish Identity

A groundbreaking ruling by Eretz Hemdah, a respected Torah law institute, has paved the way to using genetic testing to establish Jewish identity. Though this is just the first step in a long process, it already affects tens of millions of people around the world who are discovering their ancestral roots in the Jewish people, while helping many others in their journey towards conversion.


In a groundbreaking Responsa B’mareh Habazak Volume 9 ruling by the Eretz Hemdah Institute for Advanced Jewish Studies in Jerusalem, a collection of dayanim (Rabbinic judges) ruled that it is possible to determine one’s Jewish status based on genetic testing of the mitochondrial genome. If the Chief Rabbinate of Israel embraces the ruling, some 40% of olim (immigrants to Israel) from the former Soviet Union may be absolved of the need to convert in order to receive state recognition as Jews.


According to Eretz Hemdah, the ruling is intended to “give expression to the unique situation that Jewish communities around the world are presently undergoing.” The ruling could consequently provide Jewish recognition for hundreds of thousands of olim from the USSR who are unable to prove their Jewish ancestry and are therefore barred from Israeli recognition in issues of marriage, burial, and other undertakings that require one to be Jewish.


Michael Freund, founder of Shavei Israel, an organization that helps non-Jewish people with Jewish descent make aliyah (immigrate to Israel), sees this as an opportunity to use modern technology for a revolutionary development in the Jewish world. “This could very well be a major turning point in how DNA and technology are used in order to assess a person’s Jewish identity,” he told Breaking Israel News.


Freund sees the new technology as part of the trend of a prophetic return of the exiles to their Jewish roots. “We were persecuted more than any other nation in the past two millennia, it is no surprise that after all the oppression and expulsion that we are finding remnants of Jews from all four corners of the earth. It is no coincidence that the technology is coming to light at a time of an awakening of people with Jewish ancestry.”


He continued, “I would like to believe that it is part of the divine plan to assist us and facilitate efforts to reach out to descendants of Jews and bring them home to Zion,” Freund told Breaking Israel News. “We are on the cusp of a tidal wave of return and it behooves us to reach out to them.”



Ashley Perry (Perez) also views the trends of the last century to be prophetic and is delighted that Rabbi Carmel and his colleague, Rabbi Moshe Ehrenreich, “had the courage and foresight to move forward on this very sensitive issue.” Perry is the president of Reconectar, an organization that helps descendants of Spanish and Portuguese Jewish communities (known as Bnei Anousim, Marranos, and Conversos) reconnect with the Jewish world and Israel. “In the last century, the Jewish people demonstrated that history is no obstacle to achieving the highly improbable with the return to Zion and ingathering of exiles,” he told Breaking Israel News.


According to both Freund and Perry, one benefit of expanding the definition of what it means to be Jewish is that it creates an affinity and sympathy for Israel.


“There are massive positive implications for Israel and the Jewish world if we do reach out, welcome, and reconnect with those who were disconnected from us. Many Rabbis say we have the obligation to welcome them back,” Perry told Breaking Israel News.


“If one finds out about Jewish roots, they are more likely to visit and support Israel,” said Freund. “In our interest to utilize this technology and reach out more energetically to descendants of Jews.”



According to Freund, there is also a moral obligation to reach out. After the Holocaust, he explained, up to 350,000 Polish Jews returned to Poland in order to seek out loved ones and reclaim assets, but decided to stay and hide their Jewish identity even from their own family because of what they endured under Nazism, and then communism. “Many Jewish parents put their kids up for adoption in hopes that once things quiet down they can retrieve them,” said Freund. Of course, many parents did not return and the children grew up outside the Jewish faith.


“The DNA testing in question could prove to be a very valuable tool in determining Jewish identity in this case,” said Freund. “Many archives were burned, so DNA tests could come to serve that function in lieu of no documented proof of identity,” he told Breaking Israel News.


According to the Rabbinical Deal of the Eretz Hemda, Rabbi Yosef Carmel, the halakhic (according to Jewish law), grounds are solid. “Testing the Mitochondrial genome, which is transmitted exclusively through the female germ line, makes it possible to identify relatives. If it can be proven that a Jane Doe is the offspring of a Jewish mother, her own offspring would also be recognized as Jews (from birth).”


“Some 40% of European Ashkenazi Jews carry a genetic mark that suggests they are the offspring of four mothers who immigrated to Europe from the Middle East a millennium ago. Chances are high, statistically speaking, that anyone able to prove that they are the offspring of those four mothers is Jewish according to halakha,” said Rabbi Carmel.


However, Perry and Freund are skeptical of the halakhic acceptance of DNA tests.


Perry told Breaking Israel News, “I don’t see acceptance of this ruling happening at the moment because we are a people who go by tradition: if a mom Jewish, her kids are Jewish. One could have 99 percent of the DNA markers, and that doesn’t mean that they are halachicly Jewish. They could be 1% Jewish on a DNA test and be halachicly Jewish. In addition, Sephardim (Jews of Spanish and Italian descent) represent a much greater pool, which makes DNA mapping more of a challenge.”


Even so, Perry argued, the DNA tests “could be one of the pieces of evidence that allows people to understand Jewish ancestry, reach out to those with Jewish ancestry, and act as a springboard for greater interest in ancestry for those who want to return to Jewish people.”


Freund was unsure about how the ruling may be received by the Jewish population and the Rabbinate. “Jews have been oppressed because of our blood, with the Nuremberg laws and times in the inquisition and afterward. We have a very complicated relationship with the idea of blood demonstrating one’s lineage. But maybe we can turn it on its head use it for the positive rather than negative.”


While he agreed, “DNA testing is becoming an increasingly large part of the puzzle in terms of helping people to uncover their historical or genetic link with Jewish people,” he concluded, “It’s a complex issue because it involves genetics, and most don’t understand the full complexities of genetic research. Because in halakha, you need a siman boucah (clear sign) of someone’s Jewishness; it will be up to other rabbinical authorities to decide and study the issue and whether to adopt this approach or not.”




Rabbi Chaim Amsalem (Wikipedia)

Likewise, Rav Chaim Amsalem, a prominent Sephardi rabbi, recognized authority on halakha (Torah law), and former Knesset member, believes that the DNA test has halakhic limits. “I do not see it being used as proof of Jewish status,” he told Breaking Israel News.  “But if the test shows that someone has Jewish paternal roots, we can use this to determine that if they choose to convert, the process should be done in a more positive manner. If the genetic testing shows that the person has maternal Jewish roots, if they choose to convert, it should be a much shorter process that fulfills the basic requirements. Genetic testing is a blessed development that will be an enormous aid when we go out into the world. It helps us determine who is connected to the Jewish people and in what manner.”


Rabbi Carmel and Rabbi Moshe Ehrenreich have been lobbying the Chief Rabbinate to accept their research and ruling. They say the response has so far been positive but no official response has been released.





America and Israel pull out of 'biased' UNESCO

UK,Thursday 12 October 2017

By Alan McGuinness, News Reporter


The US and Israel are pulling out of UNESCO over what they see as the UN cultural agency's anti-Israel bias.


"This decision was not taken lightly, and reflects US concerns with mounting arrears at UNESCO, the need for fundamental reform in the organisation, and continuing anti-Israel bias," said State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert.


Hours later, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu announced his country would also pull out and praised America's "brave and moral decision".


A statement from Mr Netanyahu's office said Israel was leaving because UNESCO "has become the theatre of the absurd and because instead of preserving history it distorts it".


The Israeli leader told leaders at the UN Assembly last month that UNESCO was promoting a "fake history" over its decision to designate Hebron and the two shrines at its heart a "Palestinian World Heritage Site in Danger" - despite them being holy for both Muslims and Jews.


UNESCO is best known for granting protected World Heritage Status, including to Stonehenge and Westminster Abbey in the UK, and the Statue of Liberty and the Grand Canyon in the US.


Its director-general Irina Bokova, who is Bulgarian, expressed "profound regret" at America's decision and said it was a loss for "the United Nations family" and for multilateralism.


She said the US and UNESCO working together matters more than ever because "the rise of violent extremism and terrorism calls for new long-term responses for peace and security".


Ms Bokova's two terms as director have included the controversial 2011 vote to include Palestine as a member, funding issues, and repeated resolutions that have been viewed as anti-Israel.


Many saw the 2011 vote as evidence of long-running, ingrained anti-Israel bias within the UN, where Arab countries and their backers far outnumber Israel and its allies.


But Ms Bokova defended UNESCO's reputation, noting its efforts to support Holocaust education and train teachers to fight anti-Semitism.


Russia's foreign ministry said it regretted America's decision to quit, but added that the organisation had become too politicised.


The Trump administration has been preparing for a withdrawal for months and a decision was expected by the end of the year, officials in Washington said.


A number of diplomats who were set to be posted to the mission this summer were told that their positions were on hold and were advised to look for other jobs.


The US' proposed budget for the next fiscal year also contains no provision for the possibility that funding restrictions on UNESCO might be lifted.


The lack of staff and funding has been followed up with repeated denunciations of UNESCO by senior US figures, including Washington's ambassador to the UN, Nikki Haley.

The US has pulled out of the organization before - in 1980 over concerns of mismanagement and it being used for political purposes. Washington eventually rejoined in 2003. 


A Look at the Leftist


By Caroline Glick Septembe r 20, 2017 , 10:00 am

Vair Netanyahu, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's 26-year-old son, has been getting some harsh press in recent weeks.

Vair walked (or toddled) onto the stage of public life when he was five years old as he and his then two-year-old little brother Avner accompanied their parents, Bibi and Sara, into the Prime Minister's Residence for the first time in 1996.

For nearly 20 years, the Netanyahu boys were little more than a silent presence standing to the side of their parents on election nights. But while Avner remains on the sidelines while serving as a combat soldier, Vair is no longer a stage extra in his parents' story.

In recent years the older Netanyahu boy has taken to Facebook. And it works out that he is quite an iconoclast.

Vair's iconoclasm is unsurprising. The Israeli establishment has been bludgeoning his par­ ents since Vair was learning to finger-paint. It would be bizarre if he sought its approval.

Not only does he not seek acceptance from the leftist elite, he clearly holds its members in contempt.

And he's happy to tell everyone what he thinks about them. Indeed, over the past month, as the criminal probes against his parents have dominated the news cycle, the frequency of Netanyahu's controversial postings has steeply intensified.

In the last month alone, Vair's posts have caused media furors three times.

At the beginning of August, Malad, a far-left NGO that supports the BDS movement, pub­ lished a scathing attack on him on 61, a satirical website it runs.

Titled "Five things you didn't know about Crown Prince Vair Netanyahu," the piece attacked him for his political views, for continuing to live with his parents and for having publicly funded security guards, and a publicly funded car and driver.

In response, after pointing out that Malad never critic ized the children of any other premier despite ample reason to do so, Vair referred to Malad as a "radical, anti-Zionist group fi­ nanced by the Fund for Israel's Destruction and the European Union."

Malad, which is funded by the New Israel Fund, European EU-funded foundations, anti-Isra ­ el, Jewish- born billionaire George Soros's Open Society Foundation and the Rockefeller Brothers  Foundation, responded in fine democratic form.

It filed a libel suit against Vair Netanyahu.

Two weeks after the Malad brouhaha, there was the face-off between the neo-Nazis and the violent  leftists from Antifa  at Charlottesville which  left one leftist demonstrator  murdered  by a neo-Nazi.

The Israeli political and media classes stood as one with the US political establishment and condemned  the neo-Nazis while ignoring the violent far-left protesters.

In so doing Israel's national leadership incidentally or, in some cases deliberately, lent sup­ port to the US establishment's condemnations of President Donald Trump for his decision to condemn "both sides" for their resort to  violence rather than just the neo-Nazis.

Just as the conventional wisdom that only the neo-Nazis were to blame was getting set in stone, along came Vair Netanyahu and his Facebook page.

In a post in English, Vair condemned the neo-Nazis as "scums" who "hate me and my coun­ try."

But, he said, "Their breed is dying out."

Netanyahu continued, "The thugs from Antifa and BLM [Black Lives Matter] who hate my country (and America too in my view) just as much are getting stronger and stronger and be­ coming super dominant in American universities  and public life."

Netanyahu's view of the neo-Nazis as a spent force is probably incorrect. True, their num­ bers aren't very big, and to be sure, they do not hold sway in either major political party. But they do have the capacity to incite Jew-hatred on both sides of the ideological divide.

At the same time, his assertion that antisemitic groups on the Left are a "getting stronger and stronger" is entirely accurate.

Netanyahu said what Israel's political leaders didn't say. In so doing he blew the lid off the Left's self-righteous lather over right-wing antisemites by asserting, accurately, that the big­ ger problem  is in their political camp.

Not surprisingly, his statement enraged the leftist establishment. MK Micky Rosenthal, for instance, referred to Netanyahu as "Hitler Youth."

This brings us to last weekend and Vair Netanyahu's most recent media storm.

Last Friday the news broke that Attorney-General Avichai Mandelblit is about to indict Sara Netanyahu for ordering take-out from restaurants even though one of the cleaning ladies at the Prime Minister's Residence was doubling as a cook.

The next day, Vair Netanyahu published an extraordinary cartoon on his Facebook page.

Under the headline "Food Chain," the cartoon featured Soros holding a globe and pulling the strings controlling a lizard.

The lizard, in turn, is pulling the strings controlling the Literati - or in current parlance - the elite.

The Literati image is pulling the strings controlling the prime minister's arch-rival, former de­ fense minister, and prime minister Ehud Barak.

Barak is pulling the strings controlling Eldad Vaniv, Barak's former political strategist. Vaniv is now leading the weekly protests outside Mandelblit's home demanding that he indict Prime Minister Netanyahu.

Finally, Vaniv's image is pulling the strings controlling Meni Naftali, the former manager of the Prime Minister's Residence. Naftali was fired from his position in 2014 and turned against Netanyahu ahead of the 2015 election, alleging that Sara Netanyahu is guilty of mul­ tiple acts of graft and breaches of faith.

Naftali's testimony against Sara Netanyahu forms the basis of what will likely become the criminal indictment  against her.

As soon as Vair posted the image, Haaretz published it as a news story. Haaretz, like the rest of the leftist universe, condemned the image as antisemitic and condemned Vair Netanyahu for trafficking in antisemitic incitement. Conservative and Reform American Jewish leaders were quick to join the anti- Vair bandwagon.

The truth is, they have a point. It is hard to deny that the cartoon he posted is antisemitic in effect if not in substance.

In  the face of the onslaught  against Vair, some right-wing commentators  and political allies of his father have come to his defense. The general argument made by a dozen or so Netan­ yahu defenders was that it is rich, to say the least, that the same leftists who call their politi­ cal foes Nazis and fascists on seemingly a daily basis have the nerve to take offense at young Netanyahu's post. And there is a great deal of truth to the claim.

Haaretz, which has been leading the charge against Vair, and against his parents, cannot seem to stop calling members of the nationalist camp fascists and Nazis.

Haaretz writers constantly attackJustice Minister Ayelet Shaked, for instance, as "Mussolini" or a "Nazi" or a "fascist'' for trying to advance a judicial reform agenda that is supported by the vast majority  of the Israeli public.

So indeed, it is absurd that Haaretz can dare to wail about antisemitism from Yair Netanya­ hu, whose parents have been subjected to pathological attacks, for decades, by the far-left publication.

But again, while the Left's wounded cries are hypocritical, they aren't wrong.

True, George Soros is a major engine behind the worldwide campaign to delegitimize Israel's right to exist generally and the BDS movement in particular.

True, George Soros is a major engine of a parallel campaign within the American Jewish community to convince American Jewry to abandon its support for Israel.

And true, in an interview with 60 Minutes in 1998, Soros proudly admitted that he collabo­ rated with the Nazis during the Holocaust.

But despite all of this, it is undeniable that some of the attacks against Soros over the years have been antisemitic. During the Asian currency crisis in 1997, for instance, then-Malaysian prime minister Mahathir Mohammed accused Soros of leading a worldwide Jewish conspira­ cy to harm the Muslims.

And then there is David Duke, the white supremacist leader behind the Charlottesville riot. After Haaretz reported and published Netanyahu's Facebook post, Duke republished the Haaretz article and proclaimed that it gave credence to his claim that Soros controls Ameri­ca.

The thing is, Vair Netanyahu is smart enough to know an antisemitic image when he sees one.

So how did he dare to publish it? And this brings us back to the Left's favored mode of public discourse.

The purpose behind the Left's constant use of loaded terms like Nazi and fascist to describe its political foes is not to win a substantive policy dispute.

Rosenthal didn't call Vair Netanyahu a Hitler Youth because he wanted to prove that Antifa and Black Lives Matter are not powerful engines of antisemitism on the Left.

Leftists use terms like these to demonize their political opponents and render them toxic so that the public will be too embarrassed  to support  them or agree with them.

These assaults are not limited to one issue. They span the spectrum of all the Left's hot-but­ ton issues, from women in combat to gay marriage to climate change to public funding of anti-Israel movies and plays to judicial reform and the Palestinians.

Anyone who rejects the Left's positions is subjected to a campaign of demonization that is unrelenting,  unsubstantiated and always over the top.

These campaigns have delivered two results - both of which are far different from the ones the Left intended.

First, they have made a very large portion of the public hate the Left. Whereas in the past the public sympathized with the Left but voted Right because it believed the Left was well­ meaning but misguided,  today little of that goodwill remains.

The other, deeper, consequence is that terms that should be deeply meaningful have now become virtually meaningless.

If Shaked is a Nazi for trying to advance a wildly popular judicial reform agenda, then the term "Nazi" is meaningless. If attacking Soros, one of Israel's most dangerous and powerful enemies in the Western world, is antisemitic, while endemic, genocidal Jew-hatred through­ out the Muslim world is strategically insignificant, then antisemitism  is an empty term. And so on and so forth down the line.

In other words, Vair Netanyahu could use antisemitic imagery to attack the people he be­ lieves are persecuting his mother because as far as he is concerned, the concepts behind the images more powerfully evoke the Left's campaign against his parents than they resonate centuries of antisemitic imagery.

Again, this isn't to say that Netanyahu was right to use the image. He was wrong. But his de­ \cision is no mere personal failing. Rather it  is a symptom of a far greater problem.

The Left's constant misuse of intrinsically important terms has caused these terms to lose their meaning.

And as a consequence, our national discourse is becoming more irresponsible, crass and un­ tethered from  substance  to the detriment  of our society and our future.

Democratic Socialists of America Endorse BDS, Call for Israel’s Destruction - By

Breaking Israeli News, 

America’s largest socialist organization overwhelmingly voted to support the anti-Israel Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement at its biannual convention in Chicago on Saturday.

The Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) conveniently held its convention on the Jewish Sabbath, when no observant Jews would be able to appear or protest.

BDS aims at crippling Israel’s economy as political protest against the “oppressive” state. It has been very successful in destroying employment opportunities for thousands of Palestinians who worked for Israeli companies that BDS targeted.

After the vote, which passed by 90 percent, was met with wild applause, the crowd of DSA attendees began to chant a popular genocidal slogan of the pro-Palestinian movement, “From the river to the sea, Palestine will be free.”

The slogan calls for the establishment of a Palestinian state from the Jordan River to the Mediterranean Sea, where Israel currently sits, suggesting that the Jewish state will vanish from the map and be replaced entirely by “Palestine.” It is commonly heard at left-wing anti-Israel campus protests.

“Democratic Socialists of America declares itself in solidarity with Palestinian civil society’s nonviolent struggle against apartheid, colonialism, military occupation and for equality, human rights, and self-determination,” reads the BDS motion.

What a Palestinian “nonviolent struggle” might look like is not made quite clear by the DSA.

The DSA claims to be the largest socialist organization in the US, with 25,000 dues-paying members. As the organization admits that America is “unlikely to see an immediate end to capitalism tomorrow”, it does its best to fight the capitalist system by working to achieve “equitable distribution of resources…a healthy environment…gender and racial equality, and non-oppressive relationships”, among other goals.

Perhaps the DSA is unaware that wiping an entire country and people off the map, a vision they seem particularly excited about, could be defined by some as an “oppressive” move.

Amalek fighting on Biblical battlefied of Rephidim ... TODAY appears on same site

The violent, ongoing conflict between Egypt and the Islamic State currently raging in the Sinai is a reenactment of the Biblical confrontation between Israel and Amalek, even taking place on the same battlefield, pointed out a military analyst who has turned to the Bible to make sense of current events.

Exodus tells of the legendary battle between Amalek, the ancestral enemy of the Jewish people, and the Israelites, which took place in a place called Rephidim, located in the Egyptian desert.

Then came Amalek, and fought with Israel in Rephidim. Exodus 17:8

Two thousand years later, a new battle against Israel’s enemies is being staged in exactly the same place: an Egyptian airfield in Bir Gafgafa, which is located precisely on the Biblical site of Rephidim in the Sinai Peninsula.

The connection was made, surprisingly, by Debka Files, an Israeli military intelligence website. Giora Shamis, the editor of the website, immediately saw the Biblical context as the framework for understanding a situation that pits ISIS-affiliated fighters against Egypt, considered an ally of Israel in this conflict.

“I am not religious, but the correlation between ISIS and Amalek is clear and should be taken into account when considering modern events,” Shamis told Breaking Israel News. “What happened thousands of years ago is simply being played out again, a continuation of what already happened there historically.”

Shamis, who is secular, sees the Bible as a source that has a great deal to contribute in understanding the modern political forum.

“The stories in the Bible not only have a religious side, but they also have a political aspect we would do well to learn from,” Shamis said.

Shai Ben Tekoa, another journalist who views current events from a Biblical perspective, also sees Amalek as an archetype for ISIS, explaining in detail how ISIS can trace its military and ideological heritage from the Biblical nemesis.

“ISIS in particular and Islamic terrorism in general are clearly incarnations of Amalek,” said Tekoa, former head broadcaster for Arutz Sheva, to Breaking Israel News. “Like Amalek, they seek out gratuitous cruelty.”

Ben Tekoa noted the tactical similarities in Israel’s Biblical confrontation with Amalek and how it translates to modern problems with Islamic terror.

“Amalek’s main tactic was to avoid head-on confrontation,” Ben Tekoa explained. “They were sneaky, coming up from the rear to attack the weakest in society, just like ISIS and Islamic terrorists today.

“Our problem is not with Islamic armies. Islamists are congenital ambush artists, inheriting this from their Biblical forefathers.”

Ben Tekoa feels that the Biblical perspective is the most accurate lens for perceiving the regional politics and other journalists would do well to follow suit.

“The Bible is true, and its timeless brilliance is the best source for understanding the world today,” Ben Tekoa said. He related how, after learning about religion and Islam at Columbia University, he turned to the Bible for more insight. “I learned more about the Arabs and Islam from the few sentences in the Bible concerning Ishmael than from all the academic sources I studied.”

It appears that the political analysts are just now catching on to what religious experts have known all along. Rabbi Matityahu Glazerson, an expert in Bible codes, posted a video in 2015 in which he noted that the word ‘Amalek’ is composed of two words: ‘Am’ (nation) and ‘Malek’ (behead), hinting at ISIS’s signature brutality.

Rabbi Glazerson went on to show the gematria (numerology) of Amalek equals 240. Every nation has a ruling angel, and Amalek’s angel is the evil Samael. The gematria of Samael equals 136. Rabbi Glazerson then combined the two names and arrived at a total of 376, which equals the numerology of Daesh, the Arabic acronym for ISIS.

Fulfillment of Ezekiel End-of-Days Prophecy Continues With Jellyfish Plague on Israel’s Coast 

By Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz January 31, 2017 , 12:30 pm 

“Surely in that day there shall be a great shaking in the land of Yisrael; so that the fishes of the sea and the fowls of the heaven and the beasts of the field and all creeping things that creep upon the ground and all the men that are upon the face of the earth shall shake at My presence.” Ezekiel 38:20 (The Israel Bible™)

A swarm of large venomous jellyfish have suddenly appeared off the shores of the Holy Land in an anomalous incident which comes one week after an equally perplexing gathering of sharks, bearing an unmistakably prophetic message to world leaders that is coincidentally being read now in synagogues around the world. The reports of unusually large numbers of jellyfish, referred to as blooms, off the coasts of Northern Israel follow another inexplicable marine event: last week, a swarm of hundreds of sharks, called a frenzy, mysteriously appeared off the coast of Ashdod. Breaking Israel News reported that the shark frenzy recalled a prophecy in Ezekiel referring to bizarre behavior of fish and other wildlife before the war of Gog and Magog. This week’s jellyfish phenomenon would seem to emphasize that the prophecy is indeed becoming a reality.

Surely in that day there shall be a great shaking in the land of Yisrael; so that the fishes of the sea and the fowls of the heaven and the beasts of the field and all creeping things that creep upon the ground and all the men that are upon the face of the earth shall shake at My presence. Ezekiel 38:20

The jellyfish swarming the beaches of Tel Aviv and Haifa are unusually large, averaging two feet across, and can weigh up to 20 pounds. Their sting is venomous and painful. Though Israel is periodically visited by swarms of jellyfish, according to scientists, this bloom of jellyfish should not be happening right now. Last summer, University of Haifa researchers completed a study of jellyfish off the coast of Israel, concluding that the blooms, usually occurring during the summer months, are drawn to the warmer waters, 83 degrees Fahrenheit and higher, and arrive in conjunction with a full moon. The current temperature off the jellyfish-laden waters off the Israeli coast was reported today to be a brisk 62 degrees; the moon, far from being full, is a sliver in the sky.

The species, Rhopilema nomadica, are, as their name implies, nomadic. But jellyfish are not particularly strong swimmers. Their inexplicable appearance under adverse conditions smacks of an external influence pushing them along.

When told of the phenomenon, Rabbi Yosef Berger noted the similarity of the marine swarms to the plagues, which he explained were brought through nature in order to give a specific message to the greatest leader in the world: Pharaoh. But Pharaoh will not hearken unto you, and I will lay My hand upon Egypt, and bring forth My hosts, My people the children of Israel, out of the land of Egypt, by great judgments. Exodus 7:4 “The Egyptians and Pharaoh were heretics,” Rabbi Berger explained to Breaking Israel News. “[They] believed that they could do whatever they wanted, ignoring God’s will, ruling over his creation. God sent the plagues to show that he oversees everything, every detail.”

As Israel has a special purpose as God’s representative in the world, the message of the plagues, given through nature, is still relevant today, when much of the world is working to erase the Biblical covenant granting the land to Israel, said Rabbi Berger. “The purpose of Israel in the world today, just as it was in the Exodus from Egypt, is to show God’s kingship to the nations of the world,” he asserted.

“All these unusual phenomenon, from the lowest of the low, from the jellyfish and sharks, are just like the plagues. God is using Israel to send a message to the world and its leaders once again. He is still in the world, the master and king, guiding everything according to his will.” He noted that amazingly, the jellyfish phenomenon concurred with the Bible reading which describes the Ten Plagues.
