Sunni vs Shiite and history-defying assumptions
The Holy Land Foundation, located in Richardson, Texas, was the largest Islamic charity in the United States. In 2001, the federal government declared the foundation a terrorist organization, seized its assets and shut it down for providing some $12 million to Hamas. In 2007 and 2008, leaders of the organization went on trial in what became the largest terrorism financing prosecution in American history. During that trial, a strategic document on taking over North America surfaced that was written by the Muslim Brotherhood. It revealed by name a number of Islamic groups working together to undermine America--many of them allied with the current White House. But there was even greater insight.
Many question why the current "president," who was raised Sunni Muslim, is forcing an international deal with Iran, a Shiite state, that would give it nuclear weapons and possible future control over the Middle East. They site the rift between Sunni and Shite and that the two are mortal enemies. Not true. First and foremost, they are Islamic. Islam is a death cult. If it isn't killing non-Islamics, it is killing its own. If it isn't killing its own, its killing each other. History proves this repeatedly. In fact, the Bible states in Genesis 16:12 how the father of the Arabs, Ishmael would be: "And he will be a wild man, his hand will be against every man, and every man's hand against him." The Muslim Brotherhood plan gives more insight.
The plan for America, which by the way is in its advanced stages thanks to the "president," calls for "establishing an observant Islamic base with power and effectiveness [as] the best support and aid to the global Movement project...This issue requires us to learn "the art of dealing with the others," as people are different and people in many colors. We need to adopt the principle which says, "Take from people...the best they have," their best specializations, experiences, arts, energies and abilities...there is no choice for us other than alliance and mutual understanding of those who desire from our religion and those who agree from our belief in work." In other words, establish Islam and unite to rule over the world.
Let us not forget that Islam--Sunni and Shiite--was able to unify enough under the Sunni-controlled Ottoman Empire to rule much of the world, including the Middle East, from 1299 to 1923--624 years. Sharia law is much the same under Shiite or Sunni. The Muslim Brotherhood plan is to establish and unite. These leaders meet in Iran at least once a year to coordinate activities worldwide, according to former Congressman Curt Weldon's book "Countdown to Terror." They work together. But we also know, that when pressured they turn on one another as in the prophetic end time battle of Ezekiel 38, verse 21 "every man's sword shall be against his brother." If it's about killing Christians and Jews, Sunni and Shiite will unify. In battle pressure when they are losing, it may be another story as we see in prophecy.
Have a Blessed and Powerful Day!

Note: Urgent is the need for intercession that Israel will know what to do - and at what point in time - in order to protect itself against the Islamic Republic. Pray for God's wisdom to be given to political, military and security heads.
4. SAUDI MINISTER: DON'T GIVE IRAN DEALS IT DOESN'T DESERVE
5. USA RAISES PRESSURE ON ISRAEL OVER PALESTINIANS
The USA exerted new pressure against Israel by leaving open the possibility of letting the UN set a deadline for a Palestinian state, in what would be a departure from using American veto power to protect its close Mideast ally.
5. RECENT COMMENTS FROM WASHINGTON ARE UNDERMINING USA POLICY
6. PUTIN: RUSSIA READY TO HELP 'PALESTINE' BECOME REALITY
7. IDF SOURCES: ISIS ACCUMULATING SUPPORT NEAR ISRAEL-JORDAN BORDER
Concern is only amplified by the fact that there is no border fence between Jordan and Israel in that region, and the Aravah Division of the IDF, responsible for border security, suffers from low manpower. Just last month, seven people entered Israel illegally from Jordan, made their way to the Yotvata Kibbutz on the border, and stole vehicles before disappearing.
8. STUDY SHOWS ANTISEMITISM RAMPANT ON US COLLEGE CAMPUSES
A Commentary by Jon Hamill, Lamplighter Ministries
(Note: this is an excerpt of the original article. Go here to read this text in its entirety.)
As best I understand, here's the latest on the Iran nuclear deal as tomorrow's deadline looms. The Obama administration is still pushing dialogue even though Iranian negotiators have now refused to let go of the nation's stockpile of radioactive material. That's bad, folks. Means that they could still use current processed material to forge a nuclear bomb-a dirty bomb at the very least.
Meanwhile, news broke that a top-secret report on Israel's nuclear capacities has now been declassified. All this perhaps provoking prominent Israeli rabbi Schlomo Riskin to make headlines by drawing a correlation between President Obama and Haman from the Book of Esther.
In a recent article entitled "Obama's Mideast Freefall," Politico put it this way. "Barack Obama faces a slew of Middle East crises that some call the worst in a generation, as new chaos from Yemen to Iraq - along with deteriorating U.S.-Israeli relations - is confounding the president's efforts to stabilize the region and strike a nuclear deal with Iran.
The meltdown has Obama officials defending their management of a region that some call impossible to control, even as critics say U.S. policies there are partly to blame for the spreading anarchy."
What Iran Desires Most
Throughout the past few months, President Obama has made it seem as though Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is the sole global voice warning against an Iranian nuclear deal. But at the core, a nuclear deal with Iran threatens Saudi Arabia and other Sunni nations far more than Israel.
Remember that Iran is led by Shiite Islamist militants, while Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Jordan, Iraq, the Palestinians and most other Mideast nations are predominately Sunni. And friends, Shiite Iran's ultimate goal is not just to take over Jerusalem. They really want to take over Mecca and Medina, the holiest cities in Islam according to both Shia and Sunni traditions.
Note that these cities are not found within Israel's borders, but in Saudi Arabia.
. . . Isaiah 19 Highway
Whatever the case, the Mideast is now close to a freefall. And the most vulnerable are the people along "the Isaiah 19 highway."
The Lord promises that in the end, He will be glorified by an enduring alliance between "Egypt my people, Assyria my handiwork, and Israel my inheritance." This is the very region claimed by ISIS and contended for by Iranian terror proxies.
A few months ago the Holy Spirit quickened to me a key strategy of the enemy. I saw how, when Israel was about to be reborn as a nation, Satan stirred Hitler and the Nazi regime to slaughter the Jews en masse.
Now the Isaiah 19 highway is about to be fully birthed and established by the Lord. And just as the enemy stirred Hitler and the Nazi regime during WWII, he is stirring Islamist extremism in an attempt to abort the harvest and promise of this passage. Even attempting to ignite WWIII.
It goes without saying we need to pray-now. Keep pressing in prayer by the Holy Spirit. Lets hold to God's promise for Israel, the Mideast, and the Isaiah 19 highway. The scepter of the wicked must be rescinded from the land-and promise-allotted to the righteous!
In that day there will be a highway from Egypt to Assyria, and the Assyrians will come into Egypt and the Egyptians into Assyria, and the Egyptians will worship with the Assyrians.
In that day Israel will be the third party with Egypt and Assyria, a blessing in the midst of the earth, whom the Lord of hosts has blessed, saying, "Blessed is Egypt My people, and Assyria the work of My hands, and Israel My inheritance" (Isaiah 19:23-25).

Greetings to the Hebrew Nation Community! We have moved through Israel's "valley of decision" in their elections. The people of Israel has spoken; they have made their decision. They do NOT want their land to be divided to form and create a Palestinian state. They are choosing to embrace, align with and believe by faith the covenant that Yahweh made with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob and to Abraham's seed that this land is Yahweh's land, and is to forever be the inheritance of His people. Now, we have another "multitudes in the valley of decision" coming up on the world scene. What is this next valley of decision? The battle has now moved from the polls of Israel and is now going to the UN Security Council. There is a new Palestinian initiative, being championed by the EU and the US, that will be going to the UN Security Council for a vote. This is the next "valley of decision" as the nations come against the God of Israel.
Netanyahu has said, "There will be no Palestinian state, not on my watch."
Obama has said:
Obama: "Prime Minister Netanyahu in the election run-up stated that a Palestinian state would not occur while he was prime minister, and I took him at his word. There still does not appear to be a prospect of a meaningful framework established that would lead to a Palestinian state."
Now, let me "decode" for you what I believe Obama is REALLY saying:
Translation: "Israel has stated unequivocally that there will not be a Palestinian state, not on Netanyahu's watch. Therefore we are not going to include Israel any further in the rollout of a Palestinian state. We will go around Israel and find another means (the UN Security Council). There WILL be a Palestinian state on MY watch!
Obama: Netanyahu "has a different approach" that rejects a two-state solution, making the possibility of a framework deal "dim," Obama said.
Translation: "There will not be a negotiated peace process for a Palestinian state coming from the Israeli government. Therefore we are going to cut you out of the loop, and we will achieve our objective for a two state solution by going AROUND you. We will go to the UN Security Council and declare a Palestinian state through that organization. We are done negotiating with and talking to Israel."
Please join with us as we enter into this next "Valley of Decision". Join with us to watch and pray over Israel on the night of Passover. There will be a LIVE 9 hour phone conference call where you can call in and join hundreds of other people to watch and pray over Israel.

Remarks by V.P. Biden
Bbiden: American Jews Can Only Rely on Israel, Not US
US Vice President makes shocking statement, telling American Jews 'no matter how involved you are in the US, the only guarantee is Israel."
An incredible admission by US Vice President Joe Biden has been revealed, in which he told Jewish leaders that should the American Jewish community be in danger, it has only Israel to rely on - and not America.
Journalist Jeffrey Goldberg reveals in the April issue of The Atlantic how at a Rosh Hashana event in Biden's home last fall, the vice president told Jewish leaders and Jewish officials in US President Barack Obama's administration how he met former Prime Minister Golda Meir when he was a young Senator.
"I'll never forget talking to her in her office with her assistant - a guy named (Yitzhak) Rabin - about the Six-Day War," he recalled. "The end of the meeting, we get up and walk out, the doors are open, and...the press is taking photos. She looked straight ahead and said, 'Senator, don't look so sad. Don't worry. We Jews have a secret weapon.'"
Biden states he asked Meir what the weapon was, noting "I thought she was going to tell me something about a nuclear program" - an ironic comment given the US's recent declassification of documents revealing Israel's nuclear program in a breach of understandings with the Jewish state.
But according to Biden, "she looked straight ahead and she said, 'We have no place else to go.'" Addressing his guests at Rosh Hashana, Biden paused for effect and repeated, "we have no place else to go."
"Folks, there is no place else to go, and you understand that in your bones," Biden said. "You understand in your bones that no matter how hospitable, no matter how consequential, no matter how engaged, no matter how deeply involved you are in the United States . . . there's only one guarantee."
"There is really only one absolute guarantee, and that's the state of Israel," he stated.
Responding to the statement, Corey Robin of Salon wrote how disturbing the statement is, given that it consists of "a sitting vice president telling a portion of the American citizenry that they cannot count on the United States government as the ultimate guarantor of their freedom and safety."
"The occupant of the second-highest office in the land believes that American Jews should look to a foreign government as the foundation of their rights and security," she added. "A country that once offered itself as a haven to persecuted Jews across the world now tells its Jews that in the event of some terrible outbreak of anti-Semitism they should . . . what? Plan on boarding the next plane to Tel Aviv?" (Israel National News) Read more.
> > > A Commentary on this article by our friend, Baruch:
However, in truth, she did not reveal Israel's true secret weapon. The Jewish people's secret weapon is the covenant the God of Israel made with Abraham, Issac, Israel, and their descendents regarding the land of Israel. God said, "I will establish My covenant between Me and you and your [a]descendants after you throughout their generations for an everlasting covenant, to be God to you and to your [b]descendants after you. 8 I will give to you and to your [c]descendants after you, the land of your sojournings, all the land of Canaan, for an everlasting possession; and I will be their God." (Genesis 17:7-8)
He also confirmed this covenant when he declared to Abraham, "I will bless those who bless you, (and your descendants), and I will curse those who curse you." (Genesis 12:3)
Evidently, Biden and Obama do not understand blessings and curses. If they continue their current policies they will very likely find out the truth of this prophecy up close and personal. No prophecy of the Bible has come to pass more vividly throughout human history than blessings and curses.
Pray for mercy, revelation of God's truth, and understanding for our President and Vice President.
Mobilization for war
International Christian Zionist Center:
Mobilization for war
If there was ever a time that we needed not just to escape in prayer and do little or nothing about the matters we so urgently pray for, it is now! Yes, pray fervently, but not as the only thing we do but rather to find out in prayer - and cleansing ourselves from any sin or bondage to hear from our Lord who is our life and our instructor - what we should do about the matters we pray for.
May the Lord therefore help each one of us as we enter this battle zone to hear from Him who will train our hands to war as the beautiful verses quoted above from Daily light (March 5) so wonderfully express.

Deal Or No Deal?
Deal Or No Deal?
News broke over the weekend that Western and Iranian negotiators had reached a "tentative agreement" regarding Iran's nuclear program. But reports late last night indicate that the Iranians are now demanding additional concessions.
Iran had agreed to surrender its uranium stockpile to Russia so that it could not be processed into material for a nuclear weapon. Now the Islamic Republic is insisting it be allowed to keep its uranium.
During an interview over the weekend, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu denounced the negotiations, saying, "The dangerous accord which is being negotiated . . . confirms our concerns and even worse."
Netanyahu said the negotiations amounted to "a reward for Iran's aggression," and warned that Iran's ambitions were "dangerous for all of humanity." (Gary Bauer)
Iranian Defector Blasts Talks
Iranian Defector Blasts Talks
It's not surprising that Israel's leader has harsh words for these negotiations. His nation faces an existential threat from a nuclear-armed Iran. But if you question Benjamin Netanyahu's objectivity, consider what Amir Hossein Motaghi has to say about the negotiations.
Motaghi is the former editor of the Iran Student Correspondents Association. According to various reports, Motaghi was a personal aide to Iranian President Hassan Rouhani during the 2013 elections and may have served as his campaign's communications director. He was in Switzerland covering the nuclear negotiations until he defected over the weekend.
Motaghi says that journalism in Iran is a sham and that the media are heavily censored by the regime. No surprise there. He also blasted the Obama/Kerry team, saying, "The U.S. negotiating team are mainly there to speak on Iran's behalf with other members of the 5+1 countries and convince them of a deal."
If a former top campaign aide to the Iranian president says our negotiators are representing Iran's interests, then Prime Minister Netanyahu is right -- this is a really bad deal.
By the way, what explains the impulse of Obama Administration officials to speak in Arabic? This time it is Secretary of State John Kerry. While reportedly shopping for chocolate in Switzerland, Kerry was approached by an individual who told him that friends in Iran are optimistic about a deal. Kerry responded, "Inshallah!," which means "if Allah wills it." (Gary Bauer)
Palm Sunday in Jerusalem
Palm Sunday marked by Christians in Jerusalem
Christians from around the world and nearly every denomination were in Jerusalem over the weekend to mark Palm Sunday and the beginning of Holy Week. The traditional procession from the Bethpage Church on the Mount of Olives down to the Church of the Holy Sepulcher in the Old City was attended by thousands of marchers holding palm fronds in remembrance of the Triumphal Entry of Jesus into the city as recorded in all four Canonical Gospels.

A WORD OF ENCOURAGEMENT
A WORD OF ENCOURAGEMENT:
To the intercessors in America from our brothers and sisters in Christ in KENYA!
(In original language):
we greet you and salute you in Jesus precious Name from Kenya. may His amazing grace be with you and all the praying saints of C.H.P.P. By His grace, the torch of the night watch is still burning as the praying church is standing in prayer with the Nation of America. Rev. Akiiki Muyu and her husband Bishop Muyu have been of great help and encouragement, their church is holding a 30 days daily night meetings for this watch and many other saints are plugged into it even to pray for the American Nation, our Nation Kenya and Israel. during the 3rd week of the watch, the LORD gave a word of encouragement to the American intercessors here attached. please pray with us as we pray for the praying church in America
A WORD OF ENCOURAGEMENT TO AMERICAN INTERCESSORS
On the 3nd week of the Night watch during the 3rd watch of the Night, The Holy Spirit spoke to the American intercessors saying;
Be encouraged and continue calling on my Name. For the sake of the praying saints and their labor of interceding for their Nation, I have withheld my wrath. By now your Nation would have fallen to the depth of Sodom and Gomorrah.
The evil that is being brewed from your Nation is before me as an abominable stench. The accuser of your Nation as well as the accuser of the brethren never ceases to add up the numbers of children aborted in your Nation and the defiling stench of the sodomites in the hands of your accuser has reached My angel ministering at the altar of the golden incense.
Your cries and your righteousness have withheld my right hand of vengeance. By your repentance and intercession, you uphold your Nation. Know that by your prayers, the bowl of iniquity has not filled up. If you relax, the bowl will fill up with wickedness and when the bowl fills up with wickedness, judgment is inevitable.
Continue to pray that sexual pollution, the abomination of sodomites, the industry of death by way of abortions and the secret schemes of destroying other Nations comes to an end. Let the Americans call on the Name of their God who put them together as a Nation and I will hear from heaven and save your Nation.
