LUKE 21:28-29
28 And when these things begin to come to pass,(ALL THE PROPHECY SIGNS FROM THE BIBLE) then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption (RAPTURE) draweth nigh.
29 And he spake to them a parable; Behold the fig tree,(ISRAEL) and all the trees;(ALL INDEPENDENT COUNTRIES)
30 When they now shoot forth, ye see and know of your own selves that summer is now nigh at hand.(ISRAEL LITERALLY BECAME AND INDEPENDENT COUNTRY JUST BEFORE SUMMER IN MAY 14,1948.)

JOEL 2:3,30
3 A fire devoureth (ATOMIC BOMB) before them;(RUSSIAN-ARAB-MUSLIM ARMIES AGAINST ISRAEL) and behind them a flame burneth: the land is as the garden of Eden before them, and behind them a desolate wilderness; yea, and nothing shall escape them.
30 And I will shew wonders in the heavens and in the earth, blood, and fire, and pillars of smoke.(ATOMIC BOMB AFFECT)

ZECHARIAH 14:12-13
12 And this shall be the plague wherewith the LORD will smite all the people that have fought against Jerusalem; Their flesh shall consume away while they stand upon their feet,(DISOLVED FROM ATOMIC BOMB) and their eyes shall consume away in their holes,(DISOLVED FROM ATOMIC BOMB) and their tongue shall consume away in their mouth.(DISOLVED FROM ATOMIC BOMB)(BECAUSE NUKES HAVE BEEN USED ON ISRAELS ENEMIES)(GOD PROTECTS ISRAEL AND ALWAYS WILL)
13 And it shall come to pass in that day, that a great tumult from the LORD shall be among them; and they shall lay hold every one on the hand of his neighbour, and his hand shall rise up against the hand of his neighbour.(1/2-3 BILLION DIE IN WW3)(THIS IS AN ATOMIC BOMB EFFECT)

47 And say to the forest of the south, Hear the word of the LORD; Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I will kindle a fire in thee, and it shall devour every green tree in thee, and every dry tree: the flaming flame shall not be quenched, and all faces from the south to the north shall be burned therein.

18 Neither their silver nor their gold shall be able to deliver them in the day of the LORD'S wrath; but the whole land shall be devoured by the fire of his jealousy: for he shall make even a speedy riddance of all them that dwell in the land.

1 For, behold, the day cometh, that shall burn as an oven;(FROM ATOMIC BOMBS) and all the proud, yea, and all that do wickedly, shall be stubble: and the day that cometh shall burn them up, saith the LORD of hosts, that it shall leave them neither root nor branch.

Worldwide suicide attacks on the wane, but more bombers than ever female-Tel Aviv study says global decrease in 2017 likely due to setbacks suffered by Islamic State; no bombings in Israel and West Bank, but 13 foiled;-By Judah Ari Gross-JAN 8,18-TOI

The year 2017 holds a dubious record: the largest number of suicide bombings worldwide carried out by women and girls.According to a new study by Tel Aviv’s Institute for National Security Studies, released on Sunday, nearly a fifth of the 348 documented suicide attacks perpetrated in 2017 were performed by females, the vast majority of them in Africa, by the jihadist group Boko Haram.Not noted in the INSS report is that many, if not most, of the 126 women and girls who carried out suicide bombings for the Islamic State affiliated group appeared to have been brainwashed, forced or tricked into doing so.The study was written by Aviad Mendelboim and Yoram Schweitzer, of INSS’s Terrorism and Low-Intensity Conflict Research Program, using data from at least two different, independent sources.The past year saw a drop in the total number of suicide attacks worldwide, to from 469 in 2016 and 452 in 2015.“This is the lowest number of suicide attacks since 2013. Approximately 4,310 people were killed and 6,700 people wounded in suicide attacks this past year,” according to the report.“Despite the decline in the extent of the phenomenon relative to the previous year, suicide terrorism served as a weapon employed by paramilitary forces in their operations against state militaries, mainly but not only by Islamic State combatants,” the researchers wrote.The study credited the decrease, in part, to the battlefield losses of the Islamic State terrorist group.“With the military defeats suffered by the Islamic State in Iraq and in Syria and the loss of the caliphate’s territorial base, it appears that a further decline can be expected in the coming year in the number of suicide bombers who can be directly deployed,” according to the report.Mendelboim and Schweitzer acknowledged that the figure of 348 suicide bombings is likely low, as it was difficult to verify some of the data coming from Iraq and Syria, two areas that are frequent sites of suicide bombings by the Islamic State terrorist group.From the figures they collected, the researchers found that approximately two-thirds of the attacks were carried out by the Islamic State and organizations who have pledged allegiance to it, like Boko Haram, and a quarter of the suicide bombings were perpetrated by Al-Qaeda and its affiliates — amounting to some 90 percent of the attacks.“No responsibility was claimed for the rest of the suicide attacks that were carried out this year, and it is possible that some of them also relate to this ideological current, apart from two suicide attacks that were perpetrated by Houthi rebels in Yemen and the Kurdish underground (PKK) in Turkey,” according to the INSS study.Approximately two-thirds of the world’s suicide bombings occurred in four countries: Afghanistan (67), Iraq (64), Nigeria (57) and Syria (40).In 2017, there were no suicide bombings in Israel or the West Bank, though the head of the Shin Bet last month told the Knesset that 13 such attacks were foiled over the past year.December also saw a stabbing attack on a Border Police officer committed by a Palestinian man in Ramallah wearing what appeared to be a suicide bomb belt, but was later found to have been a dud.While there were no suicide bombings in Israel and the West Bank, a so-far unique one took place in the Gaza Strip in 2017.“For the first time, the Gaza Strip was the site of a suicide attack against non-Israelis, when an activist from the Salafi jihadist movement activated an explosive belt against Hamas forces who tried to arrest him at the Rafah border crossing,” according to the report, referring to a bombing in August.The 348 suicide bombings of 2017 were carried out by approximately 623 terrorists. Of them, just over a fifth — 137 — were women, who perpetrated 61 suicide attacks in 6 countries, as compared to 77 women the previous year and 118 women the year before.The vast majority — 92 percent — were carried out by the Boko Haram terrorist group in West Africa, mostly Nigeria, Chad, Cameroon and Niger.According to UNICEF, the United Nations Children’s Fund, the Nigerian-based terrorist group recognized that women and children, especially girls, were less likely to arouse the suspicion of security forces and alert citizens, enabling them to enter crowded public spaces before detonating a bomb.“It is unclear whether some of these children are even aware of what they are being asked to do,” the UN agency wrote in April 2017.“That they are carrying explosives in a belt on their chests is incontrovertible, but it has been difficult to ascertain if some of these children are being used to transport the devices to other locations and other active combatants or if they are being forced into a perverse death mission in exchange for promised redemption and martyrdom.”UNICEF documented one case of a teenage girl from Chad named Amina who was “manipulated and drugged” and forced into carrying out a suicide bombing with three other girls.For years, Boko Haram has been kidnapping children in Nigeria, the most famous case being the 276 girls who were taken from the Chibok school, prompting the creation of the “Bring Back Our Girls” movement.Kidnapped boys are used as child-soldiers, while girls, some as young as 12 and 13, are declared wives and repeatedly raped, often becoming pregnant by their rapist, according to the UN.

Massive explosion at Syria jihadist base kills 23 – monitor-Civilians among the dead in northwestern city of Idlib as blast, reportedly caused by car bomb, destroys building-By AFP-TOI-8 January 2018

BEIRUT, Lebanon — An explosion at a base for Asian jihadists in northwestern Syria’s Idlib city on Sunday killed 23 people, including seven civilians, a monitor said.Extremist groups fighting in Syria count thousands of Asians among their ranks, including many from central Asian states and members of the Muslim Uighur ethnic minority of China’s Xinjiang province.“A large explosion on Sunday evening hit the base of the Ajnad al-Qawqaz faction in Idlib,” said Syrian Observatory for Human Rights head Rami Abdel Rahman, adding that most of the non-civilian casualties were fighters from the group.He did not specify the cause of the blast, but activists on social media said a car bomb was responsible.The huge explosion in #Idlib city was recorded by a surveillance camera. #Outrage4Idlib#Syria— Tania Chávez (@Tania_Tania_C) January 7, 2018-Dozens of people were wounded, particularly fighters, according to Abdel Rahman, who said the base was “almost completely destroyed” and that nearby buildings were damaged.The Ajnad al-Qawqaz group includes hundreds of Caucasian fighters and is battling alongside the Fateh al-Sham Front, a former Al-Qaeda affiliate, to repel a Syrian regime advance in the southeast of Idlib province.The area has seen intense clashes following a regime offensive aimed at seizing a strategically vital highway between Damascus and second city Aleppo.The Britain-based Observatory, which relies on a network of activists across Syria, said regime forces had seized more than 60 villages in the area since December 25.An alliance dominated by Fateh al-Sham controls much of Idlib province, where there are regular car bombings, often blamed on disputes between armed factions.Some residents blame the Islamic State group for such attacks, although the group has no open presence in the province.

Security cabinet said holding ‘significant’ meetings on threats from north-Details of discussions withheld by IDF censor, but concerns about Syrian- and Iran-backed Hezbollah advances in the Golan known to be major issue-By TOI staff-8 January 2018

The security cabinet has convened several times in recent days to discuss the situation and threats along Israel’s northern borders, according to a report on Sunday that described the meetings “extremely significant.”“Due to limitations imposed by the military censor, I can’t give the full information,” said Channel 10 diplomatic correspondent Barak Ravid, “but after more than a decade of covering the security cabinet, I can judge that the discussions over the last few days about the northern front were extremely significant.”He added that the discussions were focused on the northern front, and among other issues dealt with the activities of Iran and the Iran-backed Hezbollah terrorist group in Syria and Lebanon, as well as preparing for the day after the Syrian civil war ends, and the renewed control of Syrian President Bashar Assad’s military over most of the country.Although he was unable to give more details of the meetings, Ravid referred to remarks made by Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman in October.“Syria and Lebanon have become one military entity. Israel must prepare for a new challenge… on the northern front,” Liberman said at that time. “Any developments will be due to Hezbollah, Assad’s regime and all those collaborating with Assad’s regime, along with the Lebanese army. Unfortunately, this is the reality,” Ravid quoted the minister as saying.Channel 10 reported that the situation on the northern front, and the Iranian presence in Syria and Lebanon, was also of great concern to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. He has held telephone conversations recently with many world leaders, warning them of the volatile situation created by Iran setting up bases in these two countries, through Hezbollah and Shiite militias.At the end of December, Assad’s troops, accompanied by Iranian-backed militias and the Hezbollah, took over the Syrian Golan from the rebels, giving the government control over the Golan Heights, captured by Israel from Syria during the 1967 Six Day War.Last week, IDF Chief of Staff Gadi Eisenkot said the most serious threat to Israel was posed by the Hezbollah terrorist group in Lebanon, followed by other jihadist groups supported by Tehran positioned on Israel’s border with Syria.Describing Iran as a “multidimensional threat,” the army chief said the most worrying aspect is the Islamic Republic’s desire to obtain nuclear capabilities, followed by its efforts to achieve hegemony in the region.He noted the nearly $1.5 billion that the country invests in its proxies in Lebanon, Yemen, Syria, Iraq and — increasingly — Palestinian terrorist groups in the West Bank and Gaza Strip.According to Eisenkot, each year Iran sends between $700 million to $1 billion to Hezbollah each year, $100 million each to Shiite militias in Syria, Shiite militias in Iraq, rebels in Yemen and to the Palestinian Islamic Jihad and Hamas terrorist groups.The army chief did not provide the source for these figures.In recent years, Eisenkot said, the Hezbollah terrorist group has transformed from a “so-called defender of Lebanon to an Iranian proxy in Syria, Iraq and Yemen.”He said the group has significant defense capabilities and can also attack the Israeli homefront, making it a formidable foe. The group is generally seen by the army as the benchmark by which it measures its preparedness for war.Eisenkot noted the group has suffered some setbacks while fighting in Syria in support of the regime, with some 2,000 fighters killed and 10,000 injured, but said that it has also earned “no small amount of experience, which worries us.”Regarding Syria, the army chief continued, the IDF has taken, and will continue to take, military action in order to prevent the entrenchment of Iran-backed Shiite militias on the border.Israel has publicly warned against the accumulation of Iranian and Iranian-backed forces at its border. Iran has arranged for thousands of militiamen from across the region to fight on behalf of Assad’s government and has sent top commanders to direct its own Revolutionary Guards in the country as well.

Turkey seeking better EU ties as journalists await prison-By Nikolaj Nielsen-EUOBSERVER

BRUSSELS, 5. Jan, 09:15-Turkey's president Recep Tayyip Erdogan is in Paris on Friday (5 January) as part of a broader charm offensive to mend ties with the European Union.Erdogan is set to meet French president Emmanuel Macron where the two plan to discuss security and defence among other issues."I will make my first visit to Europe [since the beginning of the year 2018] to [meet] my friend Emmanuel Macron," Erdogan was cited as saying in the Daily Sabah, a pro-government daily.Erdogan's move follows a continued government led-purge of the country, as some 17 journalists were put on trial over Christmas for their alleged role in a terrorist organisation. Around 150 journalists are now imprisoned in Turkey, more than any other country.The European Commission on Thursday said it too seeks better ties with Ankara, given in part the EU's reliance on Turkey to keep migrants from disembarking towards Greece.The two sides had in 2015 agreed to a EU-Turkey statement to stem migrant flows in exchange for billions in refugee aid and other political concessions, some of which, like a visa-waiver regime for Turkish nationals that has yet to materialise.Mina Andreeva, a chief EU commission spokeswoman, told reporters in Brussels that Turkey remains a strategic partner on many fronts from security to migration."We continue to deliver on our part of the EU-Turkey agreement," she said, noting that relations are close."Of course, whenever there is a need for us to remind about European principles that need to be respected, we do so," she said.Erdogan, in the wake of the failed July 2016 military coup, made repeated calls to reintroduce the death penalty. He has also tightened his presidential grip on power following a constitutional referendum last year.Such moves have put the country at odds on its path towards European Union membership, which has since been put on pause. Calls by the European Parliament to put a formal end to the talks have largely been ignored by member states.The European Council in late 2017 had instead decided to reorient pre-accession aid to Turkey with money being channeled into fields of the judiciary and civil society."Turkey for the time being is stepping away from the European Union," said EU commission president Jean-Claude Juncker in November.Meanwhile, Turkey's foreign minister Mevlut Cavusoglu is also demanding a fresh start to German relations - despite Ankara threatening to send a German journalist, Deniz Yucel, to jail."From our side, we don't see any crisis. Turkey has no problem with Germany. But Germany has a problem with Turkey, and Germany does not miss an opportunity to attack Turkey," Cavusoglu said earlier this week.Yucel works for the Die Welt newspaper and has been detained in Turkey for the past ten months without any formal charges.

5 Biblical Prophecies Fulfilled in 2017 and 5 More Expected in 2018-By Eliana Rudee January 5, 2018 , 12:48 pm-BREAKINGISRAELNEWS

“Indeed, my God does nothing Without having revealed His purpose To His servants the neviim.” Amos 3:7 (The Israel Bible™)-The year 2017 was packed with what many describe as “remarkable” or “unprecedented” events. Donald Trump’s presidential inauguration and his latest announcement that he sees Jerusalem as the eternal capital of the Jewish people are considered by believers to be prophetic  signs that the world is coming ever closer to the Messianic area.Breaking Israel News looks back on these prophetic moments and suggests five further prophecies that could be fulfilled in 2018.5 Biblical Prophecies Fulfilled in 2017-The ICEJ Parade of Nations during the Feast of Tabernacles in Jerusalem, October 10, 2017. 1. Jerusalem As A Place Of Assembly For Non-Jews-“All who survive of all those nations that came up against Jerusalem shall make a pilgrimage year by year to bow to the King Lord of Hosts and to observe Sukkot” (Zechariah 14:16).In 2017, Jerusalem became a place of assembly, a House of Prayer for all Nations, Jews and non-Jews alike, precisely as prophesied in Zechariah. Tourism to Jerusalem skyrocketed, with arrivals climbing by 25 percent compared to the 2016, and bringing in $5.8 billion of revenue. Such assembly was particularly evident during the Jewish holiday of Sukkot, when tens of thousands of Christian tourists arrived to Jerusalem. According to Rabbi Tuly Weisz, fulfilling the prophetic vision for how Sukkot will be observed in the end of days, non-Jewish participation in the “Feast of the Tabernacles” played a significant role in bringing Jews closer to celebrating Sukkot the way it is described in the books of the prophet, and as it will be celebrated in the end of times.2. Eclipse Signifies Storms and Trouble For “King of the East”-“Yea, you shall leave in joy and be led home secure. Before you, mount and hill shall shout aloud, And all the trees of the field shall clap their hands (Isaiah 55:12). August’s solar eclipse came precisely at the beginning of the Hebrew month of Elul. Rabbi Yosef Berger, the rabbi of King David’s Tomb on Mount Zion, connected this to a prophecy written in a century-old mystic text of an eclipse occurring precisely at this time that will be followed by storms and trouble for the King of the East, who the rabbi identified as North Korean Dictator Kim Jong-un. Rabbi Berger maintained that North Korea will suffer a loss if its leader continues to taunt the US president.Rabbi Berger went on to explain that in Jewish mysticism, the moon represents the Jewish people and the sun represents the non-Jews. Thus, Rabbi Berger viewed the solar eclipse as a prophecy that Israel will be renewed and will come back from galut (exile) to rise again.3. Trump Visits Western Wall-“Thus said Hashem to Cyrus, His anointed one— Whose right hand He has grasped, treading down nations before him, ungirding the loins of kings, opening doors before him and letting no gate stay shut” (Isaiah 45:1).The world went into a turmoil when US President Donald Trump became the first sitting American president to visit the Kotel (Western Wall), raising the hopes of the Jewish people that a Second Temple reenactment may yet be seen in this generation. President Trump’s unwavering support for Jewish national aspirations linked him to Persian King Cyrus, whose connection to the Messiah is found in the Book of Isaiah. Much like Cyrus, Trump rules the greatest nation of the era and Cyrus, like Trump, was powerful and rich, but secular. Esoteric Gematria (numerology) hints identified the new president as having a role in the Messiah and his actions were clearly a step in that direction. Using the method to break down the value of Hebrew letters, Donald Trump’s name in Hebrew is also the numerical equivalent of “moshiach for the House of David.” Although no one has made the claim that Trump is moshiach (messiah), many believe that he is indeed helping the Jews to settle Israel and start building the Third Temple.Prime Minister Netanyahu addresses the United Nations General Assembly in New York City, September 2011. (Avi Ohayon/GPO)-4. UN Jerusalem Vote-“Behold, I will make Yerushalayim a bowl of reeling for the peoples all around. Yehuda shall be caught up in the siege upon Yerushalayim” (Zechariah 12:2).In the final weeks of the 2017, countless countries in the United Nations voted against President Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and the home of the future American embassy. Rabbi Shimon Apisdorf, an award-winning author and teacher for Yeshiva for the Nations, saw the UN vote, which sought to isolate Jerusalem from the world, as proof that the Third Temple will rise again. While the vote was an attempt by Israel’s enemies to “put Jerusalem under siege” and “isolate the city,” similar to what occurred with the destruction of Solomon’s Temple and the Babylonian Exile, Rabbi Apisdorf told Breaking Israel News, “The seeds of Messiah were hidden, planted in the destruction of the Temple.”  Likewise, he said, “This seems like a blow to Israel, but what is really happening is that the world is focused on the relationship of the Jewish people to Jerusalem, and only good things can come out of that.”Yeminite Aliyah-Ingathering of Exiles-“They shall know that I Hashem am their God when, having exiled them among the nations, I gather them back into their land and leave none of them behind” (Ezekiel 39:28).The year 2017 was a powerful year for immigration to Israel. As prophesied in the Bible, exile were returning to the land God promised to Abraham. Population statistics showed an increase of immigration with 28,400 immigrants making aliyah to Israel in 2017. New olim included Jews from four corners of the earth: 1,200 Ethiopian Jews, Bnei Menashe, Ukrainian Jews, Indian Jews, French Jews, American Jews, and many more.5 Prophecies We Expect To See in 2018-1. Moving the US Embassy-“I am the Lord, who called you with righteousness, I will strengthen your hand; I will protect you; I will set you for a covenant to the people, to be a light unto the nations; to open blind eyes; to remove a prisoner from confinement, dwellers in darkness from a dungeon” (Isaiah 42:6).In the new age of Jewish-Christian relations, Israel is finally taking its prophesied role as a light unto the nations. This will materialize fully when US President Trump will fulfill his promise to move the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. A major platform in his presidential campaign, this promise came about as a result of strong Evangelical Christian pressure on Trump to fulfill his campaign promises. This growing link between the Jewish People and the Christians is an unexpected development, flying in the face of a millennium of difficult relations, and unmistakably moving towards the post-Messiah age of peace and brotherhood. Given this new age of relations, unprecedented developments are surely in store.2. Sunni-Shia Divides-“He shall be a wild ass of a man; His hand against everyone, And everyone’s hand against him; He shall dwell alongside of all his kinsmen” (Genesis 16:12).An 800-year old prophecy in the ancient holy book of Yalkut Shimoni declares that when the King of Persia (Iran) will provoke the King of Arabia (Saudi Arabia), redemption is around the corner. As the descendants of Ishmael, war dominates the relations between brethren in the Arab world. Iran and Saudi Arabia have not seen peace for decades and this past year demonstrated an even greater struggle for regional dominance rooted in the Sunni-Shia divide. A prophecy in the Yalkut Shimoni, a collection of Biblical teachings believed to have been arranged in the 13th century, connects the political tension between Iran and Saudi Arabia with the full redemption of the Jewish people. As the redemption nears, this political tension between Iran and Saudi Arabia will only grow.“Rabbi Yizchok said: ‘The year that Melech HaMoshiach [Messiah the King] will be revealed, all the nations of the world will be provoking each other. The King of Persia (Iran) will provoke the King of Arabia, and the King of Arabia will go to Edom (the West) to take counsel, but the King of Persia will in turn, destroy the entire world. The nations of the world will be outraged and panicked. They will fall on their faces, and they will experience pains like birth pangs. Israel too will be outraged and in a state of panic and ask, where do we go? But say unto them, “My children, do not fear, ‘Higiyah zman geulatchem’  [the time of your redemption has come]. And in the last redemption will be different from the first which was followed by further bondage and pain. After this last redemption, you will not again experience any further pain or subjugation.”3.The North Korean Threat-“They have roused Me to jealousy with a no-god; they have provoked Me with their vanities; and I will rouse them to jealousy with a no-people; I will provoke them with a vile nation. For a fire is kindled in My nostril, and burneth unto the depths of the nether-world (She’ol), and devoureth the earth with her produce, and setteth ablaze the foundations of the mountains” (Deuteronomy 32:22).Years before North Korea was known to have nuclear weapons, a noted Israeli kabbalist (mystic) predicted that North Korea would become the nuclear key to the final war in the redemptive process. Rabbi Levi Sa’adia Nachmani, who correctly predicted the Six-Day War in 1967 and the Yom Kippur War in 1973, discounted all of Israel’s greatest enemies when he said, “Not Syria, not Persia (Iran), and not Babylon (Iraq), and not Gaddafi (Libya).” Instead, Rabbi Nachmani named an unknown entity as the greatest threat: “Korea will arrive here,” he said.He based this prediction on the word ‘She’ol,’ which is the Hebrew word for hell, which is spelled the same as the Hebrew word for Seoul, the capital of South Korea. Indeed, as North Korea has increased its weapons testing and missile program, its intentions and capabilities are clear. A nuclear war could very well begin with North Korea attacking Seoul, expanding until it becomes the final war in the end of days.Written here in Hebrew is “King David”. The walls of the Old City of Jerusalem were lit up in honor of the occasion, welcoming the special Torah for the Messiah commissioned by Rabbi Yosef Berger. 4. Reestablishing the Davidic Dynasty-“For thus saith Hashem: There shall not be cut off unto David a man to sit upon the throne of the house of Yisrael“ (Jeremiah 33:17).According to genealogical records, there are indeed descendants of King David alive today. According to the prophecy, only direct descendants of King David are suitable to re-establish the Davidic Dynasty required for moshiach.Mitchell Dayan, who traces his lineage back 87 generations to King David, told Breaking Israel News, “The actual descendants may not know it, but there are descendants of King David alive today. This was prophesied in the Bible but it is also fact. Politics are irrelevant. It is going to happen, one day or another.”He continued, “The Moshiach is already here. Moshiach in Hebrew means ‘anointed.’ It is not a miracle. The family of David exists and is waiting for Israel to choose one and anoint him.”5.Building of the Third Temple-“Thus saith Koresh king of Paras: All the kingdoms of the earth hath Hashem, the God of heaven, given me; and He hath charged me to build Him a house in Yerushalayim, which is in Yehuda” ( Ezra 1:2).In a late-night surprise visit to the Western Wall several years ago, Russian President Vladmir Putin expressed his desire for the third Temple to be built. According to Chadrei Charedim, an Orthodox Hebrew news site, Putin said that the reason he came to the Temple Mount during his visit was, “to pray for the Temple to be built again.” This desire, coupled with a US President who is supportive of Israel, could create the political conditions for large-scale support for the Jewish right to Jerusalem as their spiritual inheritance.The Sanhedrin sent a letter to Putin and Trump, reminding them of the Biblically mandated role for non-Jewish kings to build the Third Jewish Temple in Jerusalem. The conflict in the halls of the UN will hopefully lead more world leaders to take an active role in rebuilding the Temple.

Report: Religious Jews’ Ascent to Temple Mount Up 75%-By JNI Media January 7, 2018 , 8:30 am-BREAKINGISRAELNEWS

” ‘From the time I brought My people out of the land of Egypt, I never chose a city from among all the tribes of Yisrael to build a House where My name might abide; nor did I choose anyone to be the leader of my people Yisrael.” II Chronicles 6:5 (The Israel Bible™)-The number of visits by religious Jews to the Temple Mount has increased by 75% in 2017, compared to 2016, according to the Yera’eh organization, which encourages Jewish ascent to the Temple Mount.In the past year there have been 25,628 religious Jews’ visits to the Temple Mount, compared with 14,626 last year, 11,001 visits in 2015, 11,754 in 2014, and only 5,658 visits by religious Jews in 2009.Religious Jews are counted separately from the other visitors, and are not allowed to enter the Temple Mount compound without police escort.Assaf Fried, spokesman for the Temple Organizations Headquarters, who promote Jewish ascent to the Temple Mount, attributes the increase in visits to the fact that, other than one attack on the Temple Mount in July, 2017, in which two Border Police officers were killed by Israeli Arabs, security in Jerusalem and on the Temple Mount is perceived by the Israeli public as being relatively calm.“Three years ago when you came to the mountain, you knew you were coming to a battlefield,” Fried said. “You’d know they’d yell you. Today a Jew who goes up to the mountain feels that he is welcome,” Fried said.Here are the stats issued by Year’eh at the conclusion of the civil year 2017:Religious Jews were allowed to be on the Temple Mount for 11% of the year, or 1,023 hours out of 8,760.Religious Jews were allowed to go to the Temple Mount on 63% of the days of 2017, or 232 days out of 365.86 Jews were arrested or detained on the Temple Mount on suspicion of “Jewish behavior” in 2017. This behavior ranged from saying a blessing on an apple, through closing one’s eyes and whispering, to crying, “Sh’ma Israel,” to bowing and prostrating.

Resident fears home vulnerable to sea after storm erodes ocean barrier-[CBC]-YAHOONEWS-January 7, 2018

From Marguerite Wade's home in East Chezzetcook, N.S., she can watch — and hear — enormous waves crashing against the natural rock barrier that separates the freshwater lake in front of her home, from the Atlantic Ocean.But what might normally be a soothing sound now has Wade filled with worry.This week's weather bomb brought winds and storm surges so severe they tore open the wall-like structure, leaving the homes along Big Lake — also known as Meisner's Lake — vulnerable to the sea.Wade said in the 50 years she's lived along the lake, she's only seen this happen once before, less than a decade ago."It didn't have a prayer this time," she said of the possibility of the wall withstanding Thursday night's storm."My first look [in the morning] is always where that hole was eight years ago. And I looked and I saw it coming in, I saw big waves."Trying to inspect the damage-The hole in the stone barrier meant the freshwater lake drained into the ocean at a rapid pace on Saturday morning, leaving only patches of ice behind. Normally, Wade said the lake is about six feet deep.Wade worries that when the tide rolls in, the erosion to the barrier will allow the lake to overfill."When the tide goes out, the lake fills into the ocean. So it's constantly wearing back and forth on the wall...It will eventually deteriorate and flood out the homes around the lake," she said.Wade tried to go and inspect the damage on Saturday afternoon.The only way to get to the break in the natural stone barrier is by walking along its edge. But about halfway there, Wade noticed two smaller holes. There wasn't water passing through them yet, but with the tide coming in, she didn't want to risk heading out any further.Risk of flooding-Wade says if the lake begins to overflow with sea water, it will follow the stream that feeds the freshwater lake and end up flooding her home and a dozen others. There's also the fear it could wash out two nearby roads.She said when the wall was breached eight years ago, the province's Department of Natural Resources brought in specialists who were able to fix the wall before flooding happened.On Friday, Wade contacted the department, but she was told only that someone would be in touch next week."The unfortunate part is mother nature doesn't wait until Monday. So we sit here and wait and wonder," she said.Area to be assessed: DNR-Spokesperson for DNR, Bruce Nunn, told CBC in an email that staff were conducting an inventory of coastal park land damages on Friday."The land breach at East Chezzetcook was identified for a full assessment and consideration of options over the coming days," he said."We continue to urge people visiting provincial park lands especially in coastal areas to use care and caution."Wade wishes the department would at least make contact with the residents to let them know whether they should be prepared to leave their homes."What do we do? I've got chickens running around here, wrap them up and put them in a lifeboat I guess," she said, chuckling."But it's very devastating....It's the unknown."

Frozen machinery, sick cows: Farmers struggle during extreme cold snap-[CBC]-YAHOONEWS-January 7, 2018

The cows at Ferme Racine in Casselman, Ont., let farmers know when their barn's pipes have frozen."If they're all surrounding the [empty water] bucket, you'll see there's something wrong," said dairy farmer Marc-Antoine Racine."You can see they're thirsty, so you know it's time to reheat the pipes."Livestock farmers in eastern Ontario are dealing with frozen equipment and sick animals during this winter's extreme cold snap, with prolonged stretches of temperatures below –20 C and wind chill making it feel as cold as –40.Racine said in a phone interview Saturday that a diesel tank and feed machinery at his farm have also frozen up.But it's the pipes that freeze once a day — or more."You go [to the barn] in the morning and hope there's nothing frozen," Racine said. "Because if there is, you know you'll lose minimum an hour unfreezing the barn."'A lot of pneumonia'-Unlike dairy cattle, beef cattle spend much of their time outside, said Amber Payne of Arc Acres Farm in south Ottawa.So while they've dealt with frozen infrastructure, the big drop in temperature means their cattle are also getting sick."When the temperature drops down to –40, they find it really hard," Payne said."You deal with a lot of pneumonia in those cases. You'll see cattle that look a little bit lousy, they're not eating as aggressively, they've got a cough … they could die quite quickly if you don't treat it right away."Payne said it's more difficult right now to keep cattle in good health because an extremely wet summer wasn't good for hay, which cattle eat over the winter."Farmers are quite adaptable in these situations [but the cold] just makes the chores a little longer every day," she said."Sleepless nights, getting up in the middle of the night and checking things, worrying about babies being born too — there's a lot of cows that are typically due in January."There are also pigs at Arc Acres Farm, which Payne said do well in the cold — as long as they have good bedding, limited exposure to the wind, and other pigs to huddle up with.

Natural ice remains unsafe at any temperature, police say-[CBC]-YAHOONEWS-January 7, 2018

As the city goes from record-breaking bone chilling temperatures to more seasonal weather in the coming days, Toronto police are warning the public against venturing out on natural bodies of ice."No ice is safe ice," Const. Corey Smith of Toronto Police Service's marine unit said. "Just because the ice looks like it's fine there's lot of cracks involved in the ice surface."Smith says people walking out onto ice is a big concern for police now that frosty winter weather has arrived.Police say they saw 20 to 30 people walking out on the ice at Toronto's harbour on Friday. The harbour has been frozen for the first time in years after days of temperatures well below zero.Walking onto ice covered natural bodies of water is risky because ice works a lot like tectonic plates, Smith says."If they move around, you could find weak spots where even though the ice is thick, it could open up and you could end up falling into the water," he adds.Despite the number of people walking out onto the ice on the Toronto Harbour, police have noticed that there's open water on the east end of the harbour. The risk will also likely grow once temperatures rise."It only takes a day of really bright sunshine on a warm day to severely compromise the thickness and structural integrity of the ice that's there," he says.City rinks remain safer way to skate-Your best bet for staying safe skating during the winter remains skating at one of the dozens of city skating rinks.At Grenadier Pond, one of Toronto's most popular skating spots, the city says a team of ice engineers inspects the ice daily and flags the ice when it's unsafe to skate."For the most part it's against the municipal code to skate on the lake or in ponds or parks, but where possible, where we're able to test this ice and ensure it's safe, folks are invited," said Matthew Cutler, spokesperson for Toronto Parks and Recreation.For those who take the risk to go out on unsafe ice on bodies of water, however, Toronto police say they're prepared."l wouldn't say we mind doing them. This is what we're here for," Smith says. "This is why we train, what we train for and have the equipment we do."

Cold snap raises concerns about coast guard's aging icebreakers in the St. Lawrence-[CBC]-January 7, 2018

A mechanical break that kept icebreaker Terry Fox from providing assistance to a trapped ferry between Quebec City and Lévis earlier this week is renewing calls to replace the coast guard's aging icebreaker fleet."The fleet of icebreakers is old," said Steven Blaney, the Conservative MP for Bellechasse-Les-Etchemins-Lévis.The ferry was eventually towed to shore by a private company and the Terry Fox icebreaker is now undergoing repairs so that it can be up and running again.After the incident on Wednesday, the ferry service between Quebec City and Lévis had to be cancelled Friday because of the accumulation of ice along the St. Lawrence River."We need icebreakers," said Blaney. "Even with the existing strategy to replace the ships, the fleet will continue to grow old."While a spokesperson for the coast guard acknowledged the aging vessels, she also defended the entity's work over the last week."We have deployed all of our ships and we're covering all of our key sectors," said Julie Gascon.The criticism raised after the incident involving the Quebec City ferry also failed to mention the efforts made by the coast guard, she added."I really think it's a shame," she said. "Our teams are working day and night to serve clients."Davie shipyard offers help-The Davie shipyard in Lévis has also offered to loan four of its powerful icebreakers to the coast guard to subsidize number of ships available during the winter along the St. Lawrence River.Frédérick Boisvert, the spokesperson for the company, said that this week's incident shows that the coast guard's current icebreakers are at the end of their life cycle."The federal fleet is rusting so quickly that it can only be replaced," he said.The proposed project to replace the ships would also create 300 jobs for the struggling Quebec-based company, he added. Davie Canada laid off nearly 400 employees right before the Christmas holidays."I think this is the perfect illustration of the pertinence of the Davie shipyard in what we're calling the debacle of the coast guard because the ships are so old," he said.Prime Minister Justin Trudeau should take the proposal into serious consideration and act before it's too late, said Blaney."It's time for him to make a good resolution, that he forget his vacation in the Caribbean with Aga Khan and that he think about the Canada's Nordic reality," he said.-Rising costs-Paul Barbeau, a naval architect, warns that simply carrying out repairs to the old icebreakers isn't enough."Our icebreakers have worked very hard and they are tired," he said. "There is no doubt that if we want to maintain that reliability that we have to get new ones.""We can't continue to repair them constantly — work conditions are very difficult."The aging fleet could lead to higher costs for maritime transport and consumers could end up having to pay more at the end of the day, he added."The risks for ship owners will be higher so insurance will cost more," said Barbeau. "Ship owners will have to put savings aside for the unexpected."

Quebec emergency rooms filled beyond capacity with flu cases-[CBC]-YAHOONEWS-January 7, 2018

It's flu season, and many of Quebec's emergency rooms are over capacity as a result.Hospitals normally experience some overcrowding this time of year, but ERs in the Montérégie and Laurentian regions are operating at double capacity.In Quebec City, too, several ERs were filled beyond their limit, including the Sainte-Anne-de-Beaupré, Saint-Sacrement and Saint-François d'Assise hospitals."We are really in the midst of the flu season right now," said Dr. Karl Weiss, head of infectious diseases at the Jewish General Hospital in Montreal.The Jewish General's emergency room was at 175-per cent capacity on Saturday. Laurentian Hospital's was at 156 per cent, and the McGill University Health Centre was at 99-per cent capacity."The holiday season is always a kind of triggering factor for the flu because everybody's together," Weiss said. "The grandparents are meeting the grandchildren."Some hospitals are putting restrictions in place to deal with the issue. Longueuil's Pierre Boucher Hospital, for instance, won't allow sick patients to be accompanied unless necessary.Know when you need to go to emergency-Quebec's Health Ministry only recommends seeking medical assistance if you have difficulty breathing and a lingering fever in addition to the other flu symptoms.The flu is viral so a prescription for antibiotics won't help, Weiss said.He added that if a fever persists for more than four days and symptoms are not improving, it could be time to seek medical help.Also, if breathing becomes difficult, Weiss recommends heading to emergency. It could be a sign of pneumonia.The MUHC advises those concerned about their health to first call Info-Santé (dial 811), where nurses are available to answer questions.Next, the hospital centre recommends visiting a family doctor, or locating a walk-in clinic if a patient doesn't have one.Of course for situations that require immediate care, the hospital urges people to call 911 or go directly to emergency.Flu vaccine could be less effective this year-Quebec's Health Ministry also recommends getting a flu vaccination to prevent infection.But Canada's chief public health officer says it's possible that this year's flu vaccine may have limited effectiveness against a particularly severe strain of influenza A, which appears to be dominant throughout Canada."In Canada it's still too early to actually tell how effective this vaccine will be," Dr. Theresa Tam told CBC News. "There is a potential ... of low-vaccine effectiveness, but we really can't tell at this point in time."The H3N2 strain, a subtype of influenza A, is associated with more severe illness among children and the elderly, causing a majority of flu cases.According to Tam, the potential for lower vaccine effectiveness makes it even more important that Canadians take other measures to protect themselves against the flu.These include handwashing, coughing into your sleeve, disposing of used tissues and staying home when you're sick.
