A Palestinian man has been arrested on suspicion of trying to cause an explosion in central Jerusalem by tampering with gas tanks and piping and then throwing a lit cigarette into the fumes.

4. Intel buying Mobileye for $15 billion in biggest Israeli hi-tech deal ever - Jerusalem Post
In the biggest deal ever to hit Israel's hi-tech industry, US chip giant Intel will be buying Jerusalem's autonomous driving company Mobileye for about $15 billion.
The firms announced a definitive agreement on Monday for the Santa Clara, California-based Intel Corporation to acquire Mobileye, a global leader in the development of computer visions and machine learning, data analysis, localization and mapping for advanced driver assistance systems and autonomous driving.
According to the agreement, a subsidiary of Intel will launch a tender to acquire all of the outstanding ordinary shares of Mobileye for $63.54 per share in cash, amounting to an equity value of about $15.3b. and an enterprise value of $14.7b. (Read more)
5. Palestinian from Terror Village Stabs Two Policemen in Jerusalem Purim Attack - Breaking Israel News
Two IDF Border policemen were wounded in a stabbing attack Monday morning by the Lions' Gate in the Old City of Jerusalem, by an Arab from a neighborhood that has been the source of some of the deadliest attacks in Israel.
The attack took place around 4:00 am, when the terrorist, armed with a large knife, entered the guard booth where the two policemen were stationed. The Palestinian terrorist stabbed the policemen, who were limited in their response by the cramped quarters. One of the IDF soldiers managed to exit the booth, load his weapon, and shoot the terrorist. One of the IDF soldiers suffered serious wounds while the other suffered moderate wounds. The terrorist was taken to the hospital where he died of his wounds. (Read more)

The Daily Brief
Every prayer below is presented to our Lord in the Name of Jesus Christ, amen.
1. Blizzard set to pound Northeast with heavy snow, high winds - Fox News
Tens of millions of Americans braced Monday for what could be the biggest storm to slam the Northeast this winter, threatening to snarl Spring Break travel plans as it dumps up to 2 feet of snow outside New York City.
The National Weather Service issued a blizzard warning from late Monday night through Tuesday evening for New York City and parts of northern New Jersey and southern Connecticut, as well as winter storm warnings and watches for the rest of the Northeast.
Meteorologists said the storm could bring 12 to 18 inches of snow in New York City, and up to 24 inches north of the city, as well as eastern Pennsylvania and northern New Jersey. (Read more)
- Lord, we pray for the people of this region, that You will intervene in this situation, and help those who are in the path of the storm. We speak to the storm and command it not to cause great harm, and to dissipate quickly in the Mighty Name of Jesus!
- "Then He arose and rebuked the wind, and said to the sea, "Peace be still!" and the wind ceased and there was great calm." (Mark 4:39)
2a. CBO: Millions would lose coverage under GOP healthcare plan - The Hill
2b. Trump official slams CBO score: It's 'just not believable' - The Hill
- Lord God, we sense in prayer that something is terribly wrong here. We ask that an immediate investigation be launched to ascertain the truth of these figures, for major policy decisions will be made accordingly. Thank You, Lord, that You know these facts. We ask they be revealed now, in Your name, amen.
- "Again, truly I tell you that if two of you on earth agree about anything they ask for, it will be done for them by my Father in heaven." (Matthew 18:19)
3. Trump administration to host 68-nation meeting on ways to 'accelerate' destruction of ISIS - Washington Times
The Trump administration will gather 68 foreign ministers from around the globe this month to figure out a more efficient strategy for decimating the Islamic State group.
The State Department confirmed Thursday that Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and U.S. allies will meet March 22-23 to "accelerate international efforts to defeat ISIS in the remaining areas it holds in Iraq and Syria and maximize pressure on its branches, affiliates and networks." Coalition forces will also discuss ways to handle the ongoing humanitarian crisis playing out in Syria and Iraq as a result of the terror group's presence in the region.
"It's an opportunity for Secretary Tillerson to lay out the challenges that are facing the coalition moving forward," acting State Department spokesman Mark Toner said Thursday, Voice of America reported. "We all recognize that we have seen progress in defeating ISIS on the ground . . . how do we leverage that success?" he said. "How do we build on that success?" (Read more)
- Lord, we ask that Your Favor rest upon the Trump administration at this meeting. We pray that real progress, real truth will reign over all of the nations represented.
- "Counsel in the heart of man is like deep water, but a man of understanding will draw it out." (Proverbs 20:5)
4. ACLU rallies forces to combat Trump policies - Cape Cod Times
In an effort to attract and energize volunteers, the American Civil Liberties Union livestreamed a resistance training video Saturday evening to thousands of groups across the country, showing people how to get involved in fighting the policies and rhetoric coming from President Donald Trump's office.
The training was also the launch of People Power, a grass-roots effort by the national civil rights group aiming to engage volunteers to "take the fight against Donald Trump's policies not just into the courts, but into the streets," according to the ACLU's website. "We have seen a huge groundswell of support for the ACLU," said Matt Allen, a field director at ACLU of Massachusetts.
The event informed people about their rights when protesting or when stopped by the police. "It's the first step in building longer-term campaigns," Allen said. (Read more)
- Lord, as the people and demons arrayed against our President seem to know no bounds, we pray for Your protection over him. We take authority over the wiles of the devil and bind them in the Mighty Name of Jesus.
- "Whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven." (Matthew 16:18b)
5. H.R. 98 - Redefining Marriage - Public Advocate
The radical Homosexual Lobby is showing their true colors. They're pushing a more extreme bill that will literally redefine marriage. Rep. Julia Brownley's (D-CA) so-called "Amend the Code for Marriage Equality Act" (H.R. 98) would erase the terms "husband" and "wife" from all federal documents.
Instead of using Real Marriage terms, the bill would replace them with pro-Homosexual "genderless" terms such as "spouse" or "partner."
Rep. Brownley's bill even falsely implies that the terms "husband" and "wife" are somehow offensive to homosexuals.
Read the text here.
- Lord, You see this bill before Congress that was introduced in January. We pray that You will stop it, defeat it, and put it under Your feet. We also pray that You will move in the hearts of the lesbian who introduced it, and of the gay community to see the truth. In Jesus' name, amen.
- "Wisdom is better than weapons of war; but one sinner destroys much good."
6. Employees who decline genetic testing could face penalties under proposed bill - Washington Post
Employers could impose hefty penalties on employees who decline to participate in genetic testing as part of workplace wellness programs if a bill approved by a U.S. House committee this week becomes law.
In general, employers don't have that power under existing federal laws, which protect genetic privacy and nondiscrimination. But a bill passed Wednesday by the House Committee on Education and the Workforce would allow employers to get around those obstacles if the information is collected as part of a workplace wellness program.

- Lord, we pray that this legislation will fall to the ground and be defeated.

7. Historic ruling grants 'tri-custody' to trio who had threesome - New York Post
A Long Island couple and a neighbor with whom they had a threesome have been granted "tri-custody" of their 10-year-old son in a groundbreaking ruling. "No one told these three people to create this unique relationship," Suffolk County Supreme Court Judge H. Patrick Leis III wrote in the ruling for the first-of-its-kind case in New York. Bay Shore residents Dawn and Michael Marano, who wed in 1994, had a conventional marriage until they befriended downstairs neighbor Audria Garcia in 2001. Garcia had been living with her boyfriend, but when they split up, she moved upstairs and "began to engage in intimate relations" with the Maranos, Leis' ruling says. Because Dawn Marano, 47, was infertile, Michael Marano, 50, fathered the boy, born on Jan. 25, 2007, with Garcia, 48, court papers say. (Read more)

8. Marine Corps' Nude-Photo-Sharing Scandal Worse Than First Realized- Military.com
The scandal that prompted an investigation into hundreds of Marines who are accused of sharing naked photographs of their colleagues in a private Facebook group is much larger than has been reported, Business Insider has learned. The practice of sharing such photos goes beyond the Marine Corps and one Facebook group. Hundreds of nude photos of female service members from every military branch have been posted to an image-sharing message board that dates back to at least May. A source informed Business Insider of the site's existence on Tuesday. The site, called AnonIB, has a dedicated board for military personnel that features dozens of threaded conversations among men, many of whom ask for "wins" -- naked photographs -- of specific female service members, often identifying the women by name or where they are stationed.

- Lord, sin spreads like wildfire, but Your message of love and forgiveness should spread even faster. We pray for You to stop this cycle of disrespect and sin among our military.

9. Wearing red, white and blue lands high school students in hot water - Fox News
Every heart beats true 'neath the red, white and blue - although some people apparently see overt displays of patriotism as offensive to immigrants and refugees.
George M. Cohan probably never thought about adding that coda to his patriotic anthem "You're a Grand Old Flag," and the Iowa high school students who donned red, white and blue to support their men's basketball team last week probably didn't think about their actions being controversial. But the patriotic garb worn by some Valley High School students on Wednesday upset students at Des Moines North High School, which is described as being more diverse and full of refugee families.

- Lord, we are in the midst of manipulation by people who hate America. We pray that You will reveal the truth in this situation. We ask for a big move of Your Spirit in this situation.
- "A false witness will not go unpunished, and he who peaks lies will not escape." (Proverbs 19:9)
10. Turkey's 'Nazi' accusations draw Germany's ire - Fox News
Germany warned Monday that Turkey's use of the word "Nazi" to describe its enemies has got to stop. Berlin's reaction came after the feud between Turkey and the Netherlands escalated over the weekend. The Turkish government summoned the Netherlands' top diplomat to lodge protests after the Dutch blocked two Turkish ministers from campaigning for a sweeping referendum that would ramp up President Recep Tayyip Erdogan's powers. Also over the weekend, the Netherlands escorted Turkey's family affairs minister out of the country and refused to let its foreign minister land there.
Erdogan called the Dutch "Nazi remnants" in response. Turkish Deputy Prime Minister Numan Kurtulmus called the Netherlands' actions "footsteps of the far-right, of the neo-fascism and neo-Nazism that has been on the rise in Europe in the past five or six years." (Read more)
- Father, as Turkey seems to be acting even more unpredictably than before, we pray that Your Hand will prevent any more evil to be perpetrated by this nation. We pray for the conversion of the world's leaders, and a move of Your Spirit across every continent, and we speak Shalom peace to every situation.
- "Why do the nations rage, and the people plot a vain thing?" (Psalm 2:1)

Everybody's a Nazi if they disagree with the left
Don't confuse liberals, progressives or communists with the facts. They don't win or lose arguments on facts. These are a breed of humankind who are in word against bullying, xenophobia, misogyny, homophobia, Islamophobia, paranoia, bigotry, and hate, but in deed they exercise those very traits against anyone who disagrees with them by hurling personal insults and labeling. Their latest post-election rages include calling people who disagree with them Nazis or a Hitler, especially if they are losing an argument. If you are really good with your facts, you may not even get a label before you advance to being a Nazi or a Hitler. These people are emotional, they care little about facts and are quick to label you.
They are also the first to say that they don't believe much of the Bible, if at all, yet they will sure quote scripture to you out of context. How many times have you heard them say on TV, "don't judge us" or "who are you to judge me?" They don't want to be judged for their stands on transgendered bathrooms or abortion, but they are quick to judge those who disagree with them as Nazis. Last June 1, for example, the leftist flagship The Daily KOS, wrote a headline, "Jeff Sessions endorses Nazi style fascism." He was being labeled because he was one of the few members of Congress who recognized that Islamic terrorists could be among those coming to America through the ex-"president's" immigration plan.
As early as March 3, 2016, the progressive Huffington Post wrote: "Donald Trump's ascent to the top of the Republican presidential candidate heap has been increasingly likened to the rise of Adolf Hitler, as both men have used racist rhetoric and blamed select groups of minorities for many of the country's problems. On Saturday, that comparison became even more apparent when footage surfaced of Trump at a rally in Orlando, Florida, that was eerily reminiscent of 1930s Nazi rallies." Noted at the end of the story: "Editor's note: Donald Trump is a serial liar, rampant xenophobe, racist, misogynist, birther and bully who has repeatedly pledged to ban all Muslims--1.6 billion members of an entire religion--from entering the U.S." Leftist Bill Maher compared Trump's speeches with Hitler's in an attempt to show how both men were alike.
These are just a couple of examples of what has become so commonplace in the national dialogue of the extreme left. The recent women's march on Washington, DC could provide many more examples where ignorant celebrities who's trade is to sling a good line, repeatedly insulted those who disagree with them with disrespect and vulgarity. Nothing in modern history compares with atrocities Hitler and the Nazis did to humankind. Romans 2:3 says, "And do you think this, O man, you who judge those practicing such things, and doing the same, that you will escape the judgment of God?" We don't have to judge because in the end, God will be the judge. It's sad that our national dialogue is so disrespectful and hateful and is generated by those who claim to be the opposite. What ever happened to civility and disagreeing without being disagreeable?
Have a Blessed and Powerful Day!

"The city does not need the sun or the moon to shine on it, for the glory of God gives it light, and the Lamb is its lamp." (Revelation 21:23)
On Jordan's stormy banks I stand, And cast a wishful eye To Canaan's fair and happy land, Where my possessions lie.
I am bound for the promised land,
I am bound for the promised land;
Oh who will come and go with me?
I am bound for the promised land.
O the transporting, rapturous scene, That rises to my sight! Sweet fields arrayed in living green, And rivers of delight!
There generous fruits that never fail, On trees immortal grow; There rocks and hills, and brooks and vales, With milk and honey flow.
O'er all those wide extended plains Shines one eternal day; There God the Son forever reigns, And scatters night away.
No chilling winds or poisonous breath Can reach that healthful shore; Sickness and sorrow, pain and death, Are felt and feared no more.
When I shall reach that happy place, I'll be forever blest, For I shall see my Father's face, And in His bosom rest.
Filled with delight my raptured soul Would here no longer stay; Though Jordan's waves around me roll, Fearless I'd launch away.

Under Trump, the Moon regains interest as possible destination
Washington (AFP) - Dismissed by former US president Barack Obama as a place explorers had already seen, the Moon has once again gained interest as a potential destination under Donald Trump's presidency.
Private sector companies in particular are energized by the prospect of future space exploration missions beyond low-Earth orbit, where the International Space Station circles the Earth.
Even though Trump himself has said little about the subject, his close circle and some former NASA officials have made clear their interest in returning to the Moon by way of partnerships with the private sector.
Billionaire Elon Musk, the president and chief executive of SpaceX, along with Amazon founder Jeff Bezos, who also runs a rocket company called Blue Origin, have met with Trump's advisors several times since the Republican won the presidency.
"There is certainly a renewed interest in the Moon in the Trump administration," said John Logsdon, former director of the Space Policy Institute at The George Washington University.
Some of Trump's advisors worked on the Constellation program, conceived by former president George W. Bush with a goal to return humans to the Moon for the first time since the pioneering US Apollo missions of the 1960s and '70s.
Obama cancelled Constellation, deeming it too costly and repetitive in nature, opting instead to work toward new and unexplored destinations like an asteroid and, one day, Mars.
"The people advising Trump on space in a sense are still angry at that and believe it was a mistake," said Logsdon.
"If the Trump administration gets out of the current chaos and if their approach to the budget would allow it, I think within the next 12 months, we will see a major space initiative involving a public-private partnership -- hopefully international partnership -- focused on a return to the Moon."

Kentucky Passes Bill to Protect Religious Expression in Public Schools
(Frankfort, KY)-[Christian Headlines] The state of Kentucky has passed a bill to protect the right to religious expression in public schools. The impetus for the bill was due to a censorship issue that occurred around Christmastime. School officials reportedly censored the scene from the beloved "A Charlie Brown Christmas" in which the character Linus talks about the true meaning of Christmas. The school in Johnson County censored the scene from the school's Christmas production, according to OneNewsNow.com.
"A Charlie Brown Christmas" was created by Charles Schultz who reportedly insisted on including the scene in which Linus reads the Christmas story from the book of Luke in the original airing of the film in 1965. The state senate easily passed the religious freedom bill in a 31-3 vote. The bill also passed the House easily in a 81-8 vote. It now goes to the desk of Gov. Matt Bevin, who is known for his Christian faith. (Read more)
