1. Destruction of Beit El buildings begins amid continued riots - YNET News

Destruction began Wednesday after the High Court upheld a decision to tear down two controversial housing structures known as the Draynoff buildings in the West Bank settlement of Beit El after nearly two days of violence between settlers and police at the scene.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu announced in wake of the riots and destruction that 300 new housing units would be approved for Beit El along with new construction in Jerusalem.

More violence erupted in wake of the court's decision as tractors arrived in Beit El to tear down the Draynoff buildings and water cannons fired on rioters in the streets. Ten of the rioters were arrested and at least six were lightly wounded. (Read More)

2. Report: IAF strike in Syria targeted Hezbollah members and fighters under Lebanese terrorist Kuntar - Jerusalem Post

The Israel Air Force reportedly struck a vehicle located in a Druse village in southwestern Syria on Wednesday, killing Hezbollah men and a pro-Assad militiaman, as well as a military base in Lebanon.

The Druse village, Hader, is located near the Golan Heights.

The second strike targeted a Lebanese military installation near the Syrian border, wounding six, according to Arab media reports. It is believed to belong to a pro-Syrian Palestinian faction. In a newsflash, Syrian state television quoted a military source as saying that Israeli planes had struck a base belonging to the Damascus-based Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine-General Command, a faction that backs President Bashar Assad. The attack occurred at 3:15 p.m. (Read More)

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas could address European heads of state in the near future as part of a push by the international community to jump-start the peace process.

It would be Netanyahu's first address to the EU Council as premier, even though he has spoken three times before a joint session of Congress.(Read More)

4. Israel's Foreign Ministry chief: Sunni Arab nations are our 'allies' - Times of Israel

NEW YORK - The director general of Israel's Foreign Ministry, Dore Gold, called the Middle East's Sunni Arab nations "Israel's allies."

Gold used the term twice in a presentation Wednesday in New York focused on the shortcomings of the Iran nuclear deal.

"What we have is a regime on a roll that is trying to conquer the Middle East," Gold said of Iran, "and it's not Israel talking, that is our Sunni Arab neighbors - and you know what? I'll use another expression - that is our Sunni Arab allies talking."(Read More)

5. Hamas calls for 'revolt' against Palestinian Authority - Times of Israel

GAZA CITY - Deputies of the Islamist movement Hamas which rules Gaza on Wednesday renewed calls for a "revolt" against the internationally recognized Palestinian Authority over its sweeping arrests of anti-Israel militants.

The deputies, in an act of defiance, held a meeting in the parliament building in Gaza City, which has not convened officially since 2007 when Hamas expelled PA security forces after a week of deadly clashes.

They called for "an uprising and a revolt against the political arrests" carried out by the PA in the West Bank and for Palestinian factions to adopt "a firm stand against the Authority's crimes against the resistance and its members."(Read More)

6. Jordan jails eight for plot to attack Israeli embassy - Times of Israel

Jordan handed down jail sentences Wednesday against seven of its citizens and a Syrian for planning attacks on US soldiers in the country and on the Israeli embassy, a judicial source said.

The plots in question would have involved "terrorist acts" against the US service personnel at a Jordan military base in al-Moaqar in 2006 and against the Israeli embassy in Amman in 2008, the source said without elaborating.

The charges included "plotting to commit a terrorist act, and possession of weapons and explosives for use" in those acts. (Read More)

The Daily Brief

1. Putin Threatens America with Nuclear Annihilation - AIM

The nation is fiercely debating the Iran nuclear deal and the significance of the Ayatollah's "death to America" tweets when the real problem is Iran's sponsor, Russia, and its lunatic ruler, Vladimir Putin. By controlling the media, killing off the opposition, and smearing Ukrainian freedom fighters as Nazis, the former KGB colonel has his country worked into a collective frenzy over a concocted Western threat. Some experts believe Russia is preparing for nuclear war on a global scale. If Putin carries out his threats, America is no more.

In this case, the U.S. is facing not only a nuclear weapons program, which is the case with Iran, but what our top generals are calling an "existential threat" to our survival as a nation. (Read More)

- Father, something is amiss here. If we know this information about Russia, why are we not actively protecting our future with weapons that can out maneuver theirs? Bring to light any hidden agreements or bribes that have occurred for the U.S. to just sit by and watch this happen.

- And you shall take no bribe, for a bribe blinds the clear-sighted and subverts the cause of those who are in the right. (Exodus 23:8)

2. Taliban's Mullah Omar died in 2013, Afghan government says- CNN

Taliban leader Mullah Mohammed Omar died in April 2013 in Pakistan, a spokesperson for Afghan President Ashraf Ghani said Wednesday in a news release, citing "credible information."

Under Omar's leadership, the Taliban offered safe haven to al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden, precipitating the U.S. military action in Afghanistan after the terror attacks of September 11, 2001.

White House deputy press secretary Eric Schultz could not confirm the death but said the administration believes the reports are credible. Schultz says the intelligence community is looking into the reports. (Read More)

- Father, the evil that men do lives after them and the Taliban is still a force of evil in Afghanistan. We pray that You will strike the wicked according to Your Word.

-"Evil shall slay the wicked" (Psalm 34:21a)

3. Officials: Iran may take own samples at alleged nuclear site - Ynet news

Iran wants its own officials to take soil samples at a site where it is alleged to have experimented with ways to detonate a nuclear weapon, and the UN agency probing the suspicions may agree provided it is allowed to monitor the process, two officials told The Associated Press Tuesday.(Read More)

- Lord, we all know that Iran does not tell the truth, so why are our leaders allowing them to take their own samples? We pray that You will intervene in this most dangerous situation for both the U.S. and Israel.

- "But the salvation of the righteous is from the Lord; He is their strength in the time of trouble." (Psalm 37:39)

4. Kerry Acknowledges Iran 'May' Use Weapons Obtained Through Agreement to Kill Americans, Israelis- CNS News

Secretary of State John Kerry conceded on Tuesday that Iran "may" use weapons that it will acquire as a result of restrictions being lifted under the nuclear agreement to kill Americans and Israelis.(Read More)

- Lord, we are appalled that our leadership knew of this problem from the beginning and went ahead with it anyway. They have shown themselves untrustworthy in every area. We pray for mercy over our nation, asking You to remember mercy in the wrath to come.

-"O Lord, revive Your work in the midst of the years! In the midst of the years make it known; in wrath remember mercy." (Habakkuk 3:2)

5. 2 dead after Legionnaires' disease outbreak hits New York City- Fox News

The New York City Department of Health is investigating an outbreak of Legionnaire's disease in the South Bronx.

The department said Wednesday that 31 cases have been reported in the area since July 10. Two patients reported to have the illness have died, and the department is looking into how these deaths relate to the outbreak.

About 2,200 Legionnaire's illnesses have been reported nationwide since Jan. 1, including more than 100 in New York City. City Health Commissioner Dr. Mary Bassett says the South Bronx cases represent an "unusual increase."(Read More)

- Father, we take authority over this outbreak in the Mighty Name of Jesus Christ and by the power of His blood. We command this disease to stop where it is and go no farther!

- "Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you." (Luke 10:19)

6. Court bars anti-abortion group from releasing new videos - Fox News

A temporary restraining order has been issued preventing an anti-abortion group from releasing any video of leaders of a California company that provides fetal tissue to researchers. The group is the same one that previously shot viral covert video of a Planned Parenthood leader discussing the sale of aborted fetuses for research.(Read More)

- Lord, You are the God of Justice. We ask that even the few videos that have gone out will spread far and wide, opening the eyes of Americans to the evil practices of Planned Parenthood. We pray not just defunding for that organization, but a move of Your Spirit to convict them of the murders they have committed.

- "And when He has come, He will convict the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment" (John 16:8)

7. U.S. State Dept. Bars Christians from Testifying about Persecution- BreakingIsraelNews

During the height of one of the most brutal months of Muslim persecution of Christians, the U.S. State Department exposed its double standards against persecuted Christian minorities.

Sister Diana, an influential Iraqi Christian leader, who was scheduled to visit the U.S. to advocate for persecuted Christians in the Mideast, was denied a visa by the U.S. State Department even though she had visited the U.S. before, most recently in 2012. (Read More)

- Father, this administration has proven it hates Christians. We ask that You work on the hearts of the State Department to grant this visa, and let it be to the Glory of Your Name!

-"He will fulfill the desire of those who fear Him; He also will hear their cry and save them. The Lord preserves all who love Him, but all the wicked He will destroy." (Psalm 145:19-20)

8. Illegal Aliens Outnumber Unemployed Americans -Townhall

The Pew Research Center says that the number of illegal aliens in the country currently outnumber unemployed Americans. The number of illegal immigrants in the United States totaled 11.3 million in 2014, outnumbering the 9.6 million Americans who were unemployed in the same year, according to data from Pew Research Center and the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS).

- Lord, this statistic is horrifying for America. You are the only one who can reverse this trend and stop the illegal immigration in America. We plead before Your Throne for answers and strategies.

-"If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him." (James 1:5)

The Daily Jot

Those White House birds of a communist feather

Our friends at the venerable Judicial Watch (JW) have uncovered yet another communist in close association with the "president." Remember when being a communist was a threat to national security? Not anymore. We have communists in the White House, communists in the Congress, and communists in the news media. Now JW is releasing the results of an investigation into the "president's" most trusted advisor, Valerie Jarrett. The FBI files obtained by JW reveal that Jarrett was raised by devout communists on both sides of her family. Jarrett's father, maternal grandfather, and father-in-law were all "hardcore communists under investigation by the US government."

JW reports: "Jarrett's dad, pathologist and geneticist Dr. James Bowman, had extensive ties to Communist associations and individuals, his lengthy FBI file shows. In 1950 Bowman was in communication with a paid Soviet agent named Alfred Stern, who fled to Prague after getting charged with espionage. Bowman was also a member of a Communist-sympathizing group called the Association of Internes and Medical organization that "has long been a faithful follower of the Communist Party line" and engages in un-American activities. Bowman was born in Washington DC and had deep ties to Chicago, where he often collaborated with fellow Communists."

JW found that the Jarrett family Communist ties also include a business partnership between Jarrett's maternal grandpa, Robert Rochon Taylor, and Alfred Stern, a Soviet agent charged with espionage who was closely associated with her dad. JW reports, "Jarrett's father-in-law, Vernon Jarrett, was also another big-time Chicago Communist, according to separate FBI filesobtained by JW as part of a probe into the Jarrett family's Communist ties. For a period of time Vernon Jarrett appeared on the FBI's Security Index and was considered a potential Communist saboteur who was to be arrested in the event of a conflict with the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (USSR)."

Why is all this so bad? The Iranian-born Jarrett, herself, has continued in her family tradition. According to JW, she is tied to the Muslim Brotherhood, closely associated with Communist Party member Frank Marshall Davis (the "president's" mentor), associated with convicted Chicago real estate felon (also the "president's" fundraiser) Antoin "Tony" Rezko, and played a major role in covering up former Attorney General Eric Holder's "fast and furious" gun running operation to Mexican drug lords. Jesus said in Matthew 24:4, "Take heed that no man deceive you." Communism seeks to abolish all religion and morals, making government the god of the people, and those who lead communist government, demigods.

1. Netanyahu to discuss gas, Palestinian issue in Cyprus visit - Jerusalem Post

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is scheduled on Tuesday to take his first visit abroad since his reelection in March, traveling 45 minutes to Cyprus for a visit of less than 12 hours.

Netanyahu's visit to Cyprus follows by just over a month a visit to Jerusalem by Cypriot President Nicos Anastasiades, whom Netanyahu welcomed as a "great friend of Israel."

While a large focus of the talks between the two leaders in Nicosia is expected to center on energy and gas matters, the two men are also expected to discuss the Palestinian issue. (Read More)

2. Arab MKs to Visit Temple Mount to Protest Jewish Visitors - Israel National News

MKs from the Joint Arab List intend to ascend the Temple Mount, Judaism's holiest site, on Tuesday, in protest to Jews and Agriculture Minister Uri Ariel (Jewish Home) visiting the Mount on Sunday, during the annual Jewish holiday of Tisha B'Av mourning the Temples' destruction.

The Arab MKs claimed they were protesting "police brutality" at the Mount, after a gang of violent Arab rioters attacked police.

"The visit to Al-Aqsa Mosque is the result of force used by the police at the entrance to the mosque, firing tear gas and making arrests at the site," Joint List chairman MK Aymen Odeh stated Monday. "We think that the visit of Minister Uri Ariel is a provocative visit aimed at changing the status quo."

"The very fact that he visits again and again, even though we know that the visits are explosive, shows that any visit is just a provocation," he continued. "With the arrival of list members, we express our position that this was a violation of the status quo, reinforcing the occupation and denial of Arab sovereignty anchored in place."(Read More)

3. Kerry to skip Israel during Mideast visit focused on Iran deal - JNS

( U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry is scheduled to travel to Egypt and Qatar next week to alleviate concerns about the Iran nuclear deal with Arab leaders, but will not visit Israel during the trip.

U.S. State Department spokesman John Kirby said Kerry will visit Egypt on Aug. 2 and then travel to Qatar to meet with the foreign ministers of the Gulf Cooperation Council to discuss the nuclear deal, before heading to East Asia.

When asked by reporters why Kerry won't be visiting Israel, Kirby said, "It is just not part of the trip." (Read More)

4. Lawmakers to meet Netanyahu in Israel - The Hill

More than 40 lawmakers will travel to Israel next month to meet with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu ahead of a critical vote in Congress on the nuclear deal with Iran.

The two congressional trips - one with Democrats, the other with Republicans - occur every two years and are organized and funded by an educational nonprofit affiliated with the powerful American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC).

House Minority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) said he will take part in the Democratic trip, which kicks off Aug. 3. Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) will be the highest-ranking member participating in the weeklong GOP visit, which begins Aug. 8.

A member briefing on the trip was held Tuesday at the Capitol. (Read More)

5. Israeli Deputy FM Launches Initiative to Curb Anti-Israel NGO Activity in Jewish State - Algemeiner

Israel's Deputy Foreign Minister Tzipi Hotovely has accelerated diplomatic efforts to reduce European support for far left nongovernmental organizations deemed to be hostile to the Jewish State, Israel's NRG reported on Monday.

Echoing comments she has made over the past several weeks in conversations with European diplomats, Hotovely directed all Israeli embassies operating in Europe to focus on the issue.(Read More)

6. Warning against Iran nuclear deal is Israel's national duty - Israel Hayom

US Secretary of State John Kerry, one of the chief promoters of the Iran nuclear deal, did not hesitate over the weekend to point a threatening finger toward Israel.

"I fear that what could happen is if Congress were to overturn it, our friends in Israel could actually wind up being more isolated and more blamed," Kerry said of the recently signed agreement. This statement illustrated Kerry's utter disdain for the American public. The public's elected representatives in Congress are not allowed to think differently than the White House? I thought America was a democracy, not a dictatorship controlled by the Democratic Party.

Meanwhile, Israeli media commentators have begun telling us that our government has been acting irresponsibly in the wake of the signing, and such behavior will have dramatic negative consequences for our relationship with the U.S. In other words, the Israeli government is protecting our country's interests at the expense of U.S. President Barack Obama's legacy.

1. UN Says It Could Help 3 Million in Yemen if a Pause Holds - NY Times

UNITED NATIONS - The latest attempt at a humanitarian pause in Yemen "has not been respected by any party to the conflict," the U.N. humanitarian chief said Tuesday, adding that a plan to reach 3 million Yemenis with aid is ready to go if only the fighting would stop.

Stephen O'Brien briefed the Security Council and repeated the call for an "unconditional freeze" in the months-long fighting between a Saudi-led coalition and Shiite Houthi rebels in the Arab world's poorest country.

A five-day humanitarian pause announced by the Saudi-led coalition quickly fell apart early Monday. An earlier pause announced this month by the U.N. also failed. (Read More)

- Father, we ask You to intervene in the fighting to allow the humanitarian aid to take place for the 3 million Yemenis. In Jesus Name.

- Then they cried unto the LORD in their trouble, [and] he delivered them out of their distresses. (Psalm 107:6)

2. Rallies Opposing Iran Deal Sprout Up Across USA - Algemeiner

Opponents of The Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (Iran Deal) between the P5+1 and the Islamic Republic are making their voices heard - demanding Congress reject this plan they contend poses a grave threat to Israel, the Middle East and the United States.

On Sunday, well over a thousand people gathered outside the Federal Building in Los Angeles to demand that Congress vote "no" on the nuclear deal brokered by Secretary of State John Kerry and his counterparts that make up the E3/EU+3. The diverse crowd included members of the local Jewish and Christian communities, as well as a significant presence of Muslims who oppose the regime in Tehran.(Read More)

- Father, we do ask that this Iran deal be overturned, in Jesus Name. May our Congress hear the many voices crying out against this deal, and take the necessary action to prevent this plan from going forward.

- Be pleased, O LORD, to deliver me: O LORD, make haste to help me. (Psalm 40:13)

3. GOP congressman launches bid to oust John Boehner as House speaker - Washington Post

A Republican congressman has filed a request to oust House Speaker John A. Boehner (R-Ohio) in a new and unusual challenge to his leadership from the GOP's right flank.

Rep. Mark Meadows (R-N.C.) on Tuesday evening filed a "motion to vacate the chair," which, if successful, would force the election of a new speaker. Such a challenge has never before succeeded in the House, and only once before -- 105 years ago -- has it been attempted.

Meadows said Tuesday that he was trying to force a "family conversation" among Republicans on the course of congressional leadership after a series of conflicts between Boehner's leadership team and a cadre of a few dozen conservatives. (Read More)

- Father, we ask wisdom upon Congress regarding this bid to oust John Boehner. Thy kingdom come, thy will be done in this matter. We pray for a Congress where all voices will be heard fairly, and we pray protection against members being forced or manipulated to vote according to someone else's agenda.

- If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you. (James 1:5)

4. Scientists worry about arms race in artificial intelligence - Myway

LONDON (AP) - Scientists and tech experts - including professor Stephen Hawking and Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak - warned Tuesday of a global arms race with weapons using artificial intelligence.

In an open letter with hundreds of signatories, the experts argued that if any major military power pushes ahead with development of autonomous weapons, "a global arms race is virtually inevitable, and the endpoint of this technological trajectory is obvious: autonomous weapons will become the Kalashnikovs of tomorrow." Some people have argued in favor of robots on the battlefield, saying their use could save lives. Such weapons are still years away.

But the scientists warned that, unlike nuclear weapons, once they are developed they will require no costly or hard-to-obtain raw materials - making it possible to mass-produce them. (Read More)

- Father, You know all things, and Your Spirit shows us things to come. Give our scientists and tech experts wisdom on how to manage and control this technological development of autonomous weapons from spiraling out of control and getting into the wrong hands.

- "I, wisdom, dwell together with prudence; I possess knowledge and discretion. (Proverbs 8:12)

5. Christian Mother Asia Bibi's Potential Freedom Could Be 'Watershed Moment' for All Christian Victims Prosecuted for Blasphemy, Group Says - Christian Post

The potential release of Christian mother of five Asia Bibi, who recently saw her death sentence in Pakistan temporarily suspended, could be a "watershed moment" for all Christians falsely accused of blasphemy, a watchdog group has said.

"This could be a watershed moment as never before has a Christian blasphemy law victim had to appeal to the Supreme High Court, the majority are released at High Court. However the legal precedent that may be created as a consequence of a successful appeal could provide protection to future Christian victims faced with cases championed by aggressive, hatred fueled Islamic imams, while actual false eyewitnesses fail to appear during any stage of the court process," Wilson Chowdhry, president of the British Pakistani Christian Association, told The Christian Post on Monday. (Read More)

- Lord, we pray You use this for future protection to Christian victims facing false accusations. We continue to pray for the release of Asia Bibi.

6. Earthquake rattles Southcentral Alaska Tuesday evening - ADN

A 6.3-magnitude earthquake that hit south of Mount Iliamna around 6:35 p.m. Tuesday rattled Alaska from Kodiak to Fairbanks, according to the Alaska Earthquake Center.

The quake struck roughly 70 miles below the Earth's surface across Cook Inlet from Homer, said Michael West, a seismologist at the Alaska Earthquake Center at the University of Alaska Fairbanks. The epicenter was about 144 miles southwest of Anchorage. (Read More)

The Daily Jot

Leftists making yet another run on gun owners

It's bad enough when as one of the first reports released by the "president," the Department of Homeland Security characterized pro-life, pro-2nd Amendment, pro-marriage Christians as extremists. But the attacks on the Constitution using Christians as the whipping post escalates with each tragedy. After the Charleston racially-inspired murders, the "president" once again lectured America on the availability of guns. Senators Joe Manchin (D-WV) and Pat Toomey (R-Pa) said they were teaming up to renew legislation that would expand meaningful background checks on those who purchase guns. After all, the man who murdered 9 people at the Emanuel AME Church had been on a psychotropic drugs.

Flashback to July 2012 when the "president" discussed the Aurora, Co theatre killings. He said, "And when there is an extraordinarily heartbreaking tragedy like the one we saw, there's always an outcry immediately after for action. And there's talk of new reforms, and there's talk of new legislation. And too often, those efforts are defeated by politics and by lobbying and eventually by the pull of our collective attention elsewhere...And I, like most Americans, believe that the Second Amendment guarantees an individual the right to bear arms. And we recognize the traditions of gun ownership that passed on from generation to generation -- that hunting and shooting are part of a cherished national heritage." These remarks represent a total twisting of the 2nd Amendment.

The gun control crowd's appeasement is that they respect that the 2nd Amendment guarantees the right of citizens to own guns for hunting and sport shooting. Of the dozens of quotes by Madison, Jefferson, Adams, Lee and more, perhaps Noah Webster said it best in his 1787 "An Examination into the Leading Principles of the Federal Constitution": "Before a standing army can rule, the people must be disarmed; as they are in almost every kingdom of Europe. The supreme power in America cannot enforce unjust laws by the sword; because the whole body of the people are armed, and constitute a force superior to any bands of regular troops that can be, on any pretense, raised in the United States."

In 1788, Richard Henry Lee wrote, "To preserve liberty, it is essential that the whole body of people always possess arms, and be taught alike especially when young, how to use them." The Founders wanted to guarantee that any standing army would be regulated by citizen armament organized into militia. This was the only way to protect and defend personal liberty. Even Yeshua believed in personal defense. He instructed his disciples to purchase the common weapon of his time--the sword: "And he that has no sword, let him sell his garment, and buy one (Luke 22:36)." The leftist "hunters" argument is propaganda to undermine the right to protect and defend oneself and one's family against the opponents of liberty--whether they be thieves or governments or both.
