1. In Jerusalem's Old City, residents brush off brash Trump rhetoric - Times of Israel
As Donald Trump's US election victory sent shockwaves across the world on Wednesday, reactions to the president-elect in Jerusalem's Old City were as diverse as the communities who live and work in the capital's historic district.
Muslims living in the Old City largely reacted to Trump's victory and its potential impact on the region with indifference. Citing previous US failures to broker an Israeli-Palestinian peace agreement and what some described as Washington's inherent pro-Israel bias, local Muslims appeared equally unimpressed and disinterested by either candidate.
"I don't like Trump or Clinton, they both belong to Israel," a man who identified himself as Nidal said outside his t-shirt store on Christian Quarter Road. "I'd say they're bad and even worse."
2. First conversation between Trump and Netanyahu since results - Jerusalem Online
As initially reported by Israeli Channel 2 News, tonight (Wednesday) President-elect Donald Trump held his first conversation with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu after his victory. This is one of the first conversations Trump held with a foreign leader after the results of the victory.
As reported by JOL, Netanyahu congratulated Trump earlier today on social media: "President-elect Trump is a true friend of the State of Israel and I look forward to working with him to advance security, stability and peace in our region."
3. Hundreds protest, burn Israeli flag at UN climate talks - Times of Israel
MARRAKECH, Morocco - Hundreds demonstrated in the Moroccan capital Wednesday against the Israeli flag being flown beside the colors of 195 other countries at UN climate talks in the central city of Marrakesh.
More than 200 people protested outside parliament in Rabat against the Jewish state's flag being hoisted at the COP22 conference that opened Monday.
"The Israeli flag at COP22 means Morocco symbolically recognizing the state of Israel. It's unacceptable," one protester told AFP.
"Death to America, death to Israel!" demonstrators cried, burning the Israeli flag.
Several pro-Palestinian associations took part in the protest after calling on authorities to take action about the flag earlier this week.
On Tuesday, Morocco's Foreign Minister Salaheddine Mezouar responded that "UN meetings around the world welcome all nations" and that the fight against climate change "requires all governments to commit."
4. IDF hits Syria after rocket fire on Golan - Israel National News
Israeli forces attacked a Syrian military position on Wednesday, hours after a rocket from Syria hit the Israeli-held Golan Heights, an army spokesperson said in a statement Wednesday afternoon.
"In response to the projectile which hit Israel earlier today, the IDF targeted an artillery position of the Syrian regime in the northern Syrian Golan Heights," the IDF spokesperson said.
The rocket was believed to be stray fire from fighting between the Syrian government forces and rebels.
5. Syrian army to Israel: Don't attack us again - Israel National News
The Syrian army on Wednesday warned Israel against attacking targets in Syria again, after Israeli forces attacked a Syrian military position in retaliation for a rocket from Syria hitting the Golan Heights.
The rocket was believed to be stray fire from fighting between the Syrian government forces and rebels.
In a statement quoted by the Syrian news agency SANA, the Syrian army said the Israeli attack destroyed one cannon and damaged another.
6. Trump Does Not See Settlements as Obstacle to Peace, Says Top Adviser - Breaking Israel News
Donald Trump's chief Israel adviser Jason Greenblatt on Thursday told Army Radio that his boss "does not define settlements as obstacle to peace, and he would prove this by pointing to the situation in the Gaza Strip, where the Jewish settlements were evacuated and peace still has not arrived."
Regarding the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, Greenblatt suggested that "Trump thinks Israel is in a difficult situation and must defend herself. Peace must arrive through a bilateral initiative and he has no plan to get involved in it." (Read more)

From New England to heartland cities like Kansas City and along the West Coast, demonstrators bore flags and effigies of the president-elect, disrupting traffic and declaring that they refused to accept Trump's victory.
Some California cities saw heated tensions over Trump's election. Thousands of protesters burned a giant papier mache Trump head in Los Angeles and started fires in Oakland intersections.
__Father, these violent temper tantrums are a symptom of people who have no idea who You are. We pray deeply for a move of Your Spirit over America, to change the hearts and minds of people who have rejected You.
_"Even so, it is not the will of your Father who is in heaven that one of these little ones should perish." (Matthew 18:14)

__Father, it is good news that some leaders are seeking to speak with Donald Trump. We pray Your mighty blessings over these meetings, and ask that wisdom be granted to our new President.

3. AMBUSH: Pennsylvania gunman turns gun on self after killing cop and pregnant woman- Fox
The body of the Pennsylvania gunman who police said opened fire on two police officers Thursday morning, killing one and injuring the other, was located with a self-inflicted gunshot wound inside a home he was hiding out, CBS Pittsburgh reported.
The suspected gunman, Michael Cwiklinski, was found in the house in the town of Canonsburg, which is outside Pittsburgh. Authorities also recovered the body of a woman who was six months pregnant and had a Protection From Abuse order against the suspected killer.
State Police Trooper Melinda Bondarenka told reporters that the officers were immediately met with gunfire when they arrived at the scene at about 3:15 a.m. Bonderanka said the police were "ambushed upon their arrival."
__Lord, we pray for Your presence and comfort for the families affected by this tragedy. We pray for Your grace and mercy as we traverse these violent times.
_"And because lawlessness will abound, the love of many will grow cold." (Matthew 24:12)
4. Russia ships 'chase away' Dutch submarine in Mediterranean- BBC
Russia's defence ministry says two of its navy destroyers forced away a Dutch submarine to stop it spying on an aircraft carrier in the Mediterranean. The sub was 20km (12 miles) from the Admiral Kuznetsov at the time of the incident, the military said. Russia sent a flotilla to the eastern Mediterranean ahead of an expected resumption of air strikes in Syria.
_Father, whatever the plans of Russia may be, we ask that You dispel them, and protect those who love You.
_"Therefore do not fear them. For there is nothing covered that will not be revealed, and hidden that will not be known." (Matthew 10:26)
5. Interpol confirms Chinese official as its new president- Reuters
Interpol said on Thursday Chinese public security official Meng Hongwei was the global police cooperation body's new president.
The official announcement from the body, headquartered in the French city of Lyon, followed an earlier announcement on the issue in China.
__ Lord, Interpol (International police) once had a sterling reputation for fighting international crime. Appointing a person from China, a country that persecutes Christians, to lead it is a dangerous sign. We ask for Your protection over all of Your people in all nations.
_"For their Redeemer is mighty; He will plead their cause against you." (Proverbs 23:11)

Christianity has been growing in Iran despite persecution. Mark Howard of Elam Ministries, which reported on the baptisms, stated, "Twenty years ago, everyone thought there were 2,000-5,000 believers in Iran." Now, however, he says there is an estimated 300,000 to 400,000.
___ Lord, we rejoice at this news, and ask that You protect these new babies in Christ against any Muslim backlash.
_"When my mother and father forsake me, then the Lord will take care of me." (Psalm 27:10)
7. Trump: 'Great Honor' to Meet With Obama - Newsmax
President Barack Obama and President-elect Donald Trump, who have often argued bitterly against each others' suitability to serve as the nation's commander in chief met face-to-face for the first time at the White House Thursday in a 90-minute transition meeting followed by a cordial joint press appearance.
The meeting, initially to have lasted just 15 minutes, went on for 90 minutes, with Obama calling the results "excellent" and Trump saying he is looking forward to receiving Obama's "counsel" as the transition of power takes place.
"This was a meeting that was going to last for maybe 10 or 15 minutes, and we were just going to get to know each other," Trump told reporters, sitting alongside Obama for a short press announcement after the meeting.
"We had never met each other. I have great respect. The meeting lasted for almost an hour and a half, and as far as I'm concerned, it could have gone on for a lot longer." (Read more)
- Father, we thank You for this excellent report, as these two great leaders sat before each other this morning to discuss issues of mutual importance. We ask that You would keep each one safe from any harm in the next 72 days of this transition. In Your name, amen.
- "First of all, then, I urge that entreaties and prayers, petitions and thanksgivings, be made on behalf of all men, for kings and all who are in authority, so that we may lead a tranquil and quiet life in all godliness and dignity. This is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior, who desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth." (I Timothy 2:1,2)
8. Ryan says Trump victory will unify Republicans, vows to work 'hand in hand' - Fox News
House Speaker Paul Ryan vowed Wednesday to help lead a "unified Republican government" with Donald Trump as president, promising Americans that the entire party can now work "hand in hand" to solve the country's problems.
Ryan's remarks extended an olive branch to Trump, the GOP president-elect with whom he's had an up-and-down relationship since the start of the 2016 election cycle.
The Wisconsin congressman and leader of the GOP-controlled House said that he'd already spoken twice with Trump and Vice President-elect Mike Pence, a former House member whom Ryan praised for his like-minded conservative principles.
Ryan's comments also came before returning to Capitol Hill next week to address challenges like ObamaCare and passing a federal budget to avoid a looming government shutdown. And they came amid a divided House Republican Conference, which had already been at odds over the populist, anti-establishment message that Trump will bring to Washington in January. (Read more)
- Father, we are grateful to read these words, because we know Your Word is true: whether it be Republican v. Democrat, or the entire nation, "a kingdom divided against itself cannot stand." We repent of our own divisive ways and pledge to stand in unity in coming days, In Your name, amen. (Mark 3:24)

Trump spoke briefly with reporters Thursday after meeting with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell at the Capitol.
Trump is wrapping up his first trip to Washington since winning Tuesday's election. He's been meeting with President Barack Obama and House Speaker Paul Ryan. (Read more)
- Lord God, we do thank You for these three top priorities that have been named by the new, President-elect as he prepares to work with Congress in the New Year. We ask that all agendas and strategies would reflect Your heart, as together, the White House and Congress seek to pass laws for the benefit of all of our people. In Your Name, amen.
- "Thy kingdom come; Thy will be done on earth, as it is in heaven . . ." (Matthew 6:10)

The Standard of Truth vs Deception
News analysts and Democratic Party campaign strategists are beside themselves that they were so wrong about this election. One Democratic political operator said that the entire party elite, including him, were so confident that they "totally missed it, and so did much of the news media." The news media missed it because they are an extension of the Democratic Party. A study by the Media Research Council indicates that some 96% of the media elite vote Democratic. There is a built in bias in that demographic. When does a reporter, or a poll sponsored by big media, or election predictions by the media cross the line into advocacy for a candidate or an ideology? And how can one be deceived by it?
These are pertinent questions in the wake of the election because they are fresh to discuss. They are also foundational in our current times to the warning Jesus gave in Matthew 24:4, "Take heed that no man deceive you." If we, as Christians, are susceptible to the media's bias, we are also predisposed to being deceived. The media is everywhere and touches us in many ways even if we did not have television or cell phones. The media is entrenched in our society to the point that most everyone we come into contact with is an extension of the media and its message in some way, shape or form. This recent election is a case study on deception and the perils of it.
From the onset, the media characterized Donald Trump as a bigot, racist and xenophobe. Although they are removed now, several media outlets put a disclaimer at the bottom of stories about Trump that emphatically said that Trump was a bigot and a racist. The media went right along with the narrative that if you believed in anything Trump said, you were a bigot and a racist. This message has been so ingrained in society that even after the election, people would ask how you could vote for a bigot and a racist like Trump. Then one media analyst suggested that the election was a "white-lash" because racist whites voted for Trump. In reality, a percentage point less whites voted for Trump than for the last GOP nominee, Mitt Romney. Trump actually carried more non-white vote than previous Republican presidential candidates.
The polls were another example. Most all the polls had Clinton winning from the start. The narrative was to convince everyone that Trump did not have a chance. The polls favored Clinton because the sampling was skewed up to 12 points in her favor before even the first question was asked. The point I am trying to make here is that when everything and everyone, even family members and close friends, is pointing at you and saying there is no hope, you are a bigot, a deplorable, unredeemable person, it takes a strong belief in a Standard of Truth to stand against this kind of pressure. If you are deceived, you will give in to it. We have to be an Ephesians 6 kind of people these days, and we must stand on the Word of God, the only standard of truth I know.
Have a Blessed and Powerful Day!

Signs of divine intervention in Trump victory
Election eve 2016 began without any real sign of a gathering storm. No hint a popular revolt was brewing. In fact, just the opposite.
The networks were reporting the mood in the inner circle of the Republican candidate was subdued, somber, tense, even foreboding - as if fearing the worst.
In direct contrast, the mood in the camp of the Democratic Party presidential candidate was described as confident, expectant and already almost celebratory.
When the first polls closed on the East Coast and the first results began to come in, those moods seemed to be swiftly confirmed by reality. The pre-election polls were not wrong. Democratic Party nominee Hillary Clinton immediately took the lead.
And she was winning in the battleground states.
She was leading in Florida. She was leading in North Carolina. She was leading in Pennsylvania. She was leading in Ohio. Clinton was threatening to pull away and end the suspense early.
At 7 p.m., there was no sign of a popular uprising led by Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump. There was no sign at 8 p.m. There was still no sign as time inexorably marched on.
Something would have to break.
And then it did.
Like a scene out of the film "It's a Wonderful Life," people had begun to pray.
But not just in one small town. Across America. And around the world. (WND) Read article here.
