Pray for the Peace of Jerusalem

7 June, 2010

Here’s a post from a fellow believer found on the blogroll (5 Doves)

Conference call with a senior member of the Israeli Cabinet 6/3/2010


A powerful conference call with a senior member of the Israeli Cabinet 6/3/2010

We have just completed a powerful conference call with a senior member of the Israeli Cabinet, Israel’s Minister of Public Affairs, Yuli-Yoel Edelstein. We were joined on the call by Mike Bickle of the International House of Prayer in Kansas City, Pastor Jay Stewart of the Refuge in North Carolina, Pastor Rusty Nelson of the Rock Family Worship Center in Alabama, Pastor Toure’ Roberts from One Church International in California, many other leaders, and over 500 Christians from across the United States.

The call was held as a response to the growing tide of misinformation and lies related to the recent incident with the “humanitarian aid” flotilla off the coast of Gaza.

We exceeded the limit of the call center capabilities; therefore we are so sorry to the many people who were unable to join the call due to the extremely high volume of response.

To listen to a recording of the conference call, go to: https://recordings.civi.com/recordings/Eagles_Wings_Conference_Call_June_3rd_130_PM_ET.wav.

After receiving an urgent call from Ambassador Asaf Shariv, Consul General of Israel in New York late on Tuesday, the need to host this call became imperative to me so that you could receive the facts of the situation from Minister Edelstein today.

It is vital that we make our voices heard now in support of the truth. I am urging you to take a moment today and do one or more of the following:

1. ARM YOURSELF WITH THE FACTS by looking at the 9 Facts at the bottom of this e-mail and visiting the links and websites listed below. Please IMMEDIATELY share this truth through Facebook, e-mails, Twitter, and social media. Please, right away, forward this e-mail, which contains all the pertinent facts to as many people as you can.

2. WRITE A LETTER TO THE EDITOR OF YOUR LOCAL NEWSPAPER IMMEDIATELY, expressing your opinion on this matter. The media has too long only shared one side of the story; it is time the truth be told. For a list of the facts of the situation, visit http://www.mfa.gov.il/MFA, or http://www.israelpolitik.org, and look at the 9 Facts at the bottom of this e-mail.

3. PLACE A PHONE CALL TO YOUR CONGRESSMEN AND SENATORS IMMEDIATELY, reminding them of the importance of standing with Israel, our closest friend and ally in the Middle East. Visit http://www.usa.gov/Contact/Elected.shtml for a complete listing of your elected officials. ALSO plan to join me and thousands July 20-22 in Washington, D.C. for the Christians United for Israel Washington Summit. See http://www.CUFI.org/summit for more information.

4. FIND ONLINE BLOGS AND NEWS SERVICES where you can place comments and make your voice heard on this important issue. The battle for truth is being waged as never before across the internet. Be kind and respectful, but clear about the truth regarding this situation. You can get more facts at http://www.mfa.gov.il/MFA, or at http://www.israelpolitik.org/, or from the 9 Facts below.

5. PLAN TO PARTICIPATE in one of the rallies below in support of Israel that are taking place across our nation. There are most likely more than those listed here. Contact your local Jewish Federation at http://www.jewishfederation.org to see if there is one in your area.

6. MAKE SURE your congregation is joining in prayer with the GLOBAL DAY OF PRAYER FOR THE PEACE OF JERUSALEM on October 3, 2010. You can:

Situations like this show us the vital importance of being a voice for God’s covenant in this hour. I encourage you to continue to pray for the peace of Jerusalem as Scripture commands in Psalm 122:6. You can visit http://www.daytopray.com for more good resources on praying for Israel.

For Zion’s Sake,

9 FACTS ABOUT THE GAZA FLOTILLA INCIDENT

1. A state of armed conflict exists between Israel and the Hamas regime controlling Gaza. Under international law, Israel has the right to protect the lives of its civilians and has undertaken measures to defend itself, including the imposition of a maritime blockade to curb the smuggling of weapons by Hamas.

2. Five of the six flotilla vessels offered passive resistance to the Israeli boarding parties, and the redirection of these vessels to Ashdod was accomplished in a peaceful manner. This indicates clearly that Israel had no intention of harming any flotilla protesters.

3. However, the activists on the sixth ship ‘Mavi Marmara’ violently attacked the Israeli landing party with knives, iron bars, hatchets, chains and other weapons. Some activists also discharged firearms and explosives, and threw an Israeli officer over the side of the ship.

4. The premeditated nature of the violence was evidenced by the clubs, knives and bullet-proof vests that were found aboard the ship, and the coordinated actions of the attackers.

5. Having expected behavior in keeping with the flotilla’s numerous declarations of ‘peaceful intent’, the soldiers were instead confronted with a rapidly deteriorating ‘lynch’ situation.

6. After several Israeli personnel were wounded, some critically, the landing party was forced to act in self-defense. Regrettably, nine of the attackers were killed.

7. The organization responsible for the ship, the IHH, promotes an extreme anti-Western agenda which has been implicated in the recruitment and financing of Jihadist terrorists worldwide, including al Qaeda. Large quantities of cash were found on board, some in the pockets of the attackers and most in courier belts ready for transfer to the Hamas.

8. The flotilla’s cargo is being off-loaded in Ashdod and the humanitarian items transferred overland to Gaza in accordance with standard operating procedures. On 1 June, the Israeli Cabinet decided that the participants of the flotilla are to be repatriated as expediently as possible.

9. Israel does not prevent aid from reaching Gaza via established land-based crossings and there is no lack of humanitarian aid to the Strip. Israel repeatedly proposed that the flotilla organizers land in the port of Ashdod and transfer their aid to Gaza through the existing overland crossings. Had the aid been delivered directly to Ashdod in the first place, as Israel offered, the entire tragic incident could have been avoided.

Thanks for the info Jim!

White House linked to flotilla organizers Israel official ties president’s adviser to controversial ‘Free Gaza Movement’

June 05, 2010

By Jerome R. Corsi

A top adviser to President Obama is the contact person within the White House for communications with the Free Gaza Movement over plans to challenge Israel’s blockade of the terrorist Hamas-controlled Gaza Strip, according to a reputable source close to the Netanyahu government.

The source, a career official whose reliability was established through his tips for the book, “Why Israel Can’t Wait,” identified John O. Brennan, deputy national security adviser for homeland security and counterterrorism, as the contact.

The allegation raises the bizarre possibility that the Free Gaza Movement’s flotilla action in the Mediterranean was being coordinated with the White House, something that would align with a shift in U.S. policy toward Israel being debated within the Obama administration.

Mike Hammer, a National Security Council spokesman, told WND flatly the report “is not true.”

His response was followed quickly by another denial, when WND asked if Hammer also rejected the claim Brennan was a key force within the White House pushing for a change in U.S. policy toward Israel in demanding an end to the blockade, as the WND source reported.

However, Brennan’s activities in his “counterterrorism” work have involved him in situations with domestic groups known to have ties to Middle East terrorism.

WND previously has reported that Brennan participated in a meeting with Muslim law students, facilitated by the Islamic Society of North America, a group that was named an unindicted co-conspirator in a case where the founders of the Holy Land Foundation of Texas were given life sentences “for funneling $12 million” to Hamas, the group currently in political control of Gaza.

Thanks MJ for that post.

Be Blessed y’all – in the name and blood of Jesus!

Keep praying and believing y’all! Our Redeemer is getting closer 🙂

Cheers!
