Focus on Israel
1. Insight for Intercessors: May 15, 2015
2. Israel threatens to kill Hamas leaders if riots continue - report - Times of Israel
Israel has reportedly warned Hamas that it will resume assassinations of the terror group's leaders if Hamas continues to organize clashes on the Gaza border. The terror group, meanwhile, vowed revenge after Monday's deadly riots.
"If the protests continue, the assassinations will return," Hadashot TV news quoted security officials as saying in a message sent to Hamas via Egypt. The reported warning came as Hamas escalated its own threats of violence.
"We say clearly today to all the world that the peaceful march of our people lured the enemy into shedding more blood," said Khalil al-Hayya, a senior leader in Hamas.
3. Israeli official: Hamas offered truce but was unwilling to make any concessions - Jerusalem Online
A senior Israeli security official confirmed on Tuesday that Hamas has recently made a number of armistice proposals to Israel through mediators, but said none of those included actual concessions.
The official said negotiating a truce has been impossible due to Hamas' lack of willingness to make significant concessions, such as dismantling its military wing. He added that, if a substantial offer is made, Israel will consider it.
In an interview with CBS News on Tuesday, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu condemned Hamas for "pushing civilians, women, children into the line of fire with the view of getting casualties."
4. Hezbollah says 'new phase' in war with Israel after strikes - Yahoo
BEIRUT (AP) - The leader of Lebanon's Hezbollah said Monday a barrage of rockets from Syria against Israeli forces in the occupied Goal Heights last week opens up "a new phase" in the conflict, warning that Israel proper could be the next target for retaliation.
Hassan Nasrallah said that Israel has been informed through an international body that retaliation inside Israel will take place if it crosses "a red line" in Syria, without providing specifics.
Israel on Thursday unleashed a heavy bombardment against what it said were Iranian military installations in Syria on Thursday. It said it was retaliation for an Iranian rocket barrage on its positions in the Golan. It was the most serious military confrontation between the two bitter enemies to date.
5. Netanyahu speaks with Merkel and Macron - Israel National News
Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu on Tuesday spoke by telephone with German Chancellor Angela Merkel. The two discussed regional issues.
The Prime Minister said that in the wake of President Donald Trump's declaration on Iran, opportunities have been created to rein in Iran's aggression and prevent its military nuclearization. Netanyahu thanked Merkel for condemning Iran's aggression and for her support of Israel's right to defend its sovereignty.
Netanyahu also spoke with French President Emmanuel Macron and said that Israel would maintain its security interests and emphasized that no country would countenance threats to its sovereignty.
6. Guatemalan President Arrives To Reopen Embassy In Jerusalem - Jerusalem Post
Guatemalan President Jimmy Morales arrived in Israel on Tuesday to take part in the official reopening of the Central American country's embassy in Jerusalem's Malha Technology Park on Wednesday.
Guatemala had an embassy in Jerusalem until 1980. But it pulled it out - along with several other countries - when the Knesset passed the Jerusalem Law in 1980 that declared "united" Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. Mattanya Cohen, Israel's ambassador to Guatemala and Honduras, said in a Kan Bet interview that Guatemala has a tradition of friendship for Israel that goes back to efforts by Jorge Garcia Granados, the country's ambassador to the UN at the time, to push for acceptance of the Partition Plan in 1947.
Cohen noted that just as Guatemala was the second country in 1948, after the United States, to recognize Israel, it is now the second country, after the US, to move its embassy to Jerusalem.
The Daily Brief
1. North Korea cancels talks with South, threatens to pull out of U.S. summit: Report - Washington Times
North Korea has suddenly canceled high-level talks with South Korea that were planned for Wednesday and threatened to pull out of the upcoming summit with President Trump amid frustration in Pyongyang over ongoing joint U.S.-South Korean military exercises, according to report in Seoul. South Korea's Yonhap News Agency reported that the North's main state-controlled media outlet, the KCNA, announced that the annual "Max Thunder" joint drills underway between the South Korean and U.S. air forces are a rehearsal for an invasion of the North and a provocation. Yonhap issued a separate news bulletin that the North had also threatened to "cancel the U.S. summit," an apparent reference to the June 12 meeting slated to occur between Mr. Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in Singapore, because of the ongoing drills.
The White House had no immediate comment on the report. President Trump didn't respond to reporters' shouted questions about the fate of the North Korea summit as he left the White House late Tuesday afternoon. The high-level North-South talks that were slated for Wednesday had been set to take place on the southern side of the demilitarized zone (DMZ) separating the Korean peninsula to follow up on a breakthrough summit that Mr. Kim and South Korean President Moon Jae-in held last month. News of the North's sudden cancelation on Wednesday's talks broke after midnight Korea time. (Read more)
- Father, we lift up the North Korean people to you and pray for their deliverance from oppression. May nothing stand in the way of the upcoming peace talks and freedom for North Korea.
- Yet the Lord longs to be gracious to you; therefore he will rise up to show you compassion. For the Lord is a God of justice. Blessed are all who wait for him!
2. Nikki Haley blocks UN statement on Gaza violence, walks out on Palestinian envoy - Washington Examiner
U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley on Tuesday blocked a call for an international investigation into Israel's tactics in clashes with Gaza protesters, and blamed Iran and terrorist proxies for causing the violence. "In recent days, Hamas terrorists, backed by Iran, have incited attacks against Israeli security forces and infrastructure," Haley told the U.N. Security Council during a Tuesday session. "There is far too little discussion in the Security Council on Iran's destabilizing presence in Syria, its promotion of violence in Yemen, its support for terrorism in Gaza, and its dangerous and illegal weapons buildup in Lebanon."
Trump and Israeli officials drew widespread condemnation on Monday, as thousands of Palestinians protested the opening of the U.S. embassy in Jerusalem. Dozens of Palestinians were killed in the ensuing clashes. A proposed U.N. statement from Kuwait offered on Tuesday called for an investigation to decide if the Israeli Defense Forces violated international bans on "willful killing and willfully causing great suffering," but Haley praised their tactics and blamed Hamas, and blocked it from consideration as she did so. "Hamas maps and social media show the fastest routes to reach Israeli communities in case demonstrators make it through the security fence," she said, citing media reports. "They have reported on Hamas messages over loudspeakers that urge demonstrators to burst through the fence, falsely claiming Israeli soldiers were fleeing, when in fact, they were not." Haley then walked out of the chamber before the Palestinian representative to the council gave his remarks. (Read more)
- Father, we pray this tough approach to the Palestinians will lead to a breakthrough for peace with Israel and stability for the region. We ask You to reveal the motivations and financial support behind these demonstrations to the world.
- The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of people, who suppress the truth by their wickedness, since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them.
3. Trump founds Middle East policy on truth, ditches fantasy - Washington Examiner
President Trump's policies in the Middle East are separating out who stands for what and with whom in that tumultuous region. It is not yet clear whether Trump's dramatic initiatives will work and serve American interests and the cause of peace. But one thing that can be said already is that moving the U.S. Embassy in Israel to Jerusalem, withdrawing from the Iran nuclear deal, forging bonds with Persian Gulf leaders, and working with Iraq's military against the Islamic State all help put U.S. policy on a footing of truth rather than make-believe, which is reason to celebrate.
Moving the embassy fulfills the promise Trump and his predecessors all made. Keeping promises is a good thing, both in establishing American credibility, and simply because honesty and reliability are virtues. Trump has severed the fanciful bonds that former President Barack Obama sought to establish between the U.S. and the clerical tyranny that runs Iran. By pulling out of the nuclear deal, Trump reassures the bloc of Sunni-Arab monarchies led by Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates that American policy toward the region is not built on the daydream that Tehran is pragmatic and could be a regional ally, rather than a country presided over by a group ideologically committed to terrorism and the domination of its neighbors.
In the Palestinian territories, Trump must act aggressively to counter the forces of disenchantment and nihilism. Hamas cannot be reasoned with, another truth Trump is making clear, but the Palestinian Authority in Ramallah and the Palestinian people require American help to build their confidence in the possibility of peace. Trump is sorting allies, good-faith actors, plausible partners, and evil regimes. He is radically disrupting the failed status quo. The results are unknowable. But there's a virtue in making the truth more evident to the world. (Read more)
- Father, we pray President Trump and Secretary Pompeo will yield to Your Spirit of wisdom regarding all relationships with other nations. Put our nation on track to lead with integrity again.
- I instruct you in the way of wisdom and lead you along straight paths.
4. Trump Lays Out New 'Catch & Release' Rules To Crowd Of Police Officers - The Reaction Says It All - Daily Caller
President Trump gave an impassioned speech to the 37th Annual National Peace Officers' Memorial Service at the U.S. Capitol Building Tuesday morning. Speaking to the crowd of officers and families of officers, Trump unveiled his administration's version of a 'catch and release' program.
"We are calling on Congress to secure our borders, support our border agents, stop sanctuary cities and shut down policies that release violent criminals back into our communities," Trump said. "We don't want it any longer. We've had it. Enough is enough." Trump said his administration is targeting the ultra-violent gang, MS-13, to audience applause. "We are getting them out of our country by the thousands," Trump said, "every week we're setting new records on it - we have a catch and release program, too. It's called, we catch them here and we release them in the country they came back from. We're getting them out. Trump continued, "The Trump Administration has a policy. It's very clear. We will protect those that protect us and who do such a great job in protecting us." (Read more)
- Father, we pray for Your divine protection over our law enforcement. Help them complete the difficult task of removing dangerous people from our streets and communities.
- Do not withhold your mercy from me, Lord; may your love and faithfulness always protect me. (Psalm 40:11)
5. Devin Nunes Says Trump Campaign Might Have Been Set Up, Predicts Embarrassing Outcome For FBI And DOJ - Daily Caller
House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes of California said the Trump campaign might have been set up by the federal government back in 2016. "Let's talk about how did this get started? You had Fusion GPS that was hired by the Democratic Party and the Clinton campaign to draw up a dossier on the president - or as the president was running for president," Nunes said Tuesday on "Fox & Friends." "What happened with that is that in [Glen Simpson's] testimony he mentioned that there was a source within the campaign. Nunes said Glenn Simpson, the head of Fusion GPS, told Congress he was being truthful about a mole within the Trump campaign and predicted the fallout would tarnish the FBI and DOJ.
"I think what it really means, I think it will look badly on the Department of Justice and the FBI on how they conducted this investigation," Nunes said. He also said the entire investigation into President Donald Trump lacked credibility from the start. "I think if the campaign was somehow set up, I think that would be a problem. Right? If they were somehow meetings that occurred and all of this was a setup," Nunes said. "Because we have yet to see any credible evidence or intelligence that led to the opening of this investigation." (Read more)
- Father, we pray all the information about what truly went on before, during and after the 2016 election will become commonly known. Bring vindication to the innocent and conviction to the scoundrel.
- No longer will the fool be called noble nor the scoundrel be highly respected.
6. Gina Haspel picks up two more Democratic votes, ensuring her confirmation to lead CIA - Washington Examiner
Gina Haspel, President Trump's nominee to be the next CIA director, on Tuesday picked up the support of two more Senate Democrats, which puts her on track to be confirmed by the Senate later this month. Democrats were slow to come around to Haspel, as many worried about her role overseeing enhanced interrogation techniques used on terror suspects in the aftermath of the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks. But on Tuesday Haspel sent a letter to Sen. Mark Warner, the top Democrat on the Senate Intelligence Committee, saying that the CIA should not have used enhanced interrogation techniques, which included waterboarding. Soon after the letter was sent, Warner said he would support the nomination.
"I'm going to support Gina Haspel's nomination to be Director of the CIA," he said in a statement. "I also respect my colleagues who have made a different decision." Warner said the Senate Intelligence Committee "will continue to conduct thorough and vigorous oversight" of the CIA and other intelligence agencies. Warner joined Sens. Joe Donnelly of Indiana and Joe Manchin of West Virginia in a small group of three Democrats who support Haspel. Moments later, Sen. Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota said she would also vote for her. Warner's support for Haspel also makes it almost certain the intelligence committee will be able to approve her when it meets Wednesday. And support from four Democrats makes her confirmation on the Senate floor all but certain. (Read more)
- Father, we pray Gina Haspel will move through these final stages of Senate confirmation quickly and continue to serve our nation well as CIA Director.
- The work is being carried on with diligence and is making rapid progress under their direction. (Ezra 5:8)
7. Voters cast ballots in 4 states; in Pa., redrawn map in play - OneNewsNow
Tuesday's primary elections will begin to settle swing state Pennsylvania's chaotic congressional landscape after a court fight ended with redrawn districts just three months ago. Pennsylvania primary voters will also decide the fate of President Donald Trump's pick for U.S. Senate. Idaho voters are set to pick their Republican gubernatorial nominee, while heavily Republican Nebraska and Democratic-leaning Oregon are also holding primaries Tuesday.
Republicans outnumber Democrats in Pennsylvania's House delegation, though a new congressional map is making the state a focal point of Democrats' effort to reclaim House control in November. Rep. Lou Barletta is hoping Trump's recent run of successful election suggestions continues in the Pennsylvania Republican Senate primary. Barletta is heavily favored over state Rep. Jim Christiana to become the Republican challenger for Democratic Sen. Bob Casey, who is seeking a third term in November. (Read more)
- Father, we pray each election result will be a reflection of Your perfect will for these district and state races. Encourage those whose hearts are Yours to pursue these offices with energy and excellence.
- The hand of the diligent will rule, but the lazy man will be put to forced labor. (Proverbs 12:24)
8. Conservative activists launch effort to combat social-media political bias - Washington Times
Conservatives who have long chafed over being marginalized and muzzled on social media are fighting back with a newly formed coalition. Conservatives Against Online Censorship launched Tuesday in an effort to "draw attention to the issue of political censorship on social media," starting with Facebook, Twitter, Google and YouTube.
Brent Bozell, president of the Media Research Center, called social media "the most expansive and most game-changing form of communication today. It is these facts that make online political censorship one of the largest threats to free speech we have ever seen," Mr. Bozell said in a statement. "Conservatives should be given the same ability to express their political ideas online as liberals, without the fear of being suppressed or censored."
The anti-censorship coalition called for the tech giants to provide more transparency "to see if liberal groups and users are being treated the same as those on the right," and provide greater clarity on "hate speech." The group urged companies to "make equal room for conservative groups as advisers to offset this bias," and to expand employment diversity efforts to include "viewpoint diversity." Finally, the coalition argued that tech giants should implement policies that "mirror the First Amendment," which would allow companies to block content that "threatens violence of spews obscenity, without trampling on free-speech liberties." (Read more)
- Father, censorship is one of the most serious issues of our time. We pray for a heart change among those on the left to understand the true meaning of tolerance and free speech.
- Your eyes are too pure to look on evil; you cannot tolerate wrongdoing. Why then do you tolerate the treacherous? Why are you silent while the wicked swallow up those more righteous than themselves? (Habakkuk 1:13)
9. Minnesota Democrats wage war on God, faith and American history - Fox News
A bill in the Minnesota Senate that would allow schools in the state to voluntarily display the national motto "In God We Trust" has state Democrats spiraling into fits of outrage, because God offends them. By waging war on God, they are showing contempt for people of faith and disregard for the hiOn the floor of the Minnesota Senate, Democratic Sen. Scott Dibble suggested using "Allah" in place of "God" - as in "In Allah We Trust." Dibble wondered how the bill's sponsor, Republican Sen. Dan Hall, would react, since the words "God" and "Allah" (an Arabic word) mean the same thing.
Here's a little history lesson for Dibble. "In God We Trust" was recognized as our nation's motto more than 200 years ago when Francis Scott Key penned it in "The Star Spangled Banner" as he watched the Battle of Fort McHenry during the War of 1812. He wrote: "And this be our motto - 'In God is our trust.' So this motto goes almost as far back as the founding of our country. It's very much ingrained in our heritage.
- Lord, there is a huge disconnect with people who do not see the difference between the One True Living God, and the false god of the Islamic religion. We pray for truth to win over lies.
- "You shall have no other gods before me." (Exodus 20:3)
10. Invasion of privacy charge dropped against Missouri Gov. Eric Greitens - Washington Examiner
An invasion of privacy charge has been dropped against embattled Republican Missouri Gov. Eric Greitens, according to a new report. "This is a great victory and it has been a long time coming," Greitens said in a statement after learning of the news. "This experience has been humbling and I have emerged from it a changed man. I think that in all of our lives we have to deal with pain. Above all I am sorry for the pain that this process and my actions have caused my family, my friends and the people of Missouri," he added. "I am also tremendously, tremendously grateful for the extraordinary courage and patience of family, and friends, and people of faith who have all recognized that in time comes the truth."
Accusations made against Greitens have been investigated by the Missouri House Special Investigative Committee on Oversight for several months. The invasion of privacy charge was related to allegations against him for blackmailing a woman with whom he had an extramarital affair. Although Greitens has admitted to the affair, he denies he blackmailed the woman. The Missouri General Assembly is planning to hold a special session on Friday to determine if Greitens should be impeached due to the multiple allegations of misconduct.
Should Greitens be impeached, Lt. Gov. Mike Parson would replace him as governor and fulfill the remainder of Greitens' term until the beginning of 2021. Greitens, a former Navy SEAL who previously had been a Democrat, was elected governor as a Republican in 2016. (Read more)
- Father, we lift up Governor Greitens to You and pray for justice on his behalf. We ask You to expose all lies or coordination by the enemy to destroy him. We also pray for You to give him wisdom to resign or keep fighting.
- Look upon my affliction and my trouble, and forgive all my sins. (Psalm 25:18)

The Peace of Jerusalem
What presidents since 1995 said they were going to do, but exercised a Congressional waiver instead, President Donald Trump officially recognized Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and moved the US Embassy there. Trump said, "Presidents issued these waivers under the belief that delaying the recognition of Jerusalem would advance the cause of peace . . . It would be folly to assume that repeating the exact same formula would now produce a different or better result. Therefore, I have determined that it is time to officially recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel . . . Israel is a sovereign nation with the right like every other sovereign nation to determine its own capital. Acknowledging this as a fact is a necessary condition for achieving peace."
Pastors John Hagee and Robert Jeffress were on hand to bless the Embassy and pray for the peace of Jerusalem, as did Rabbi Zalman Wolowik. They cited Psalm 122:6, "Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: they shall prosper that love thee." But there was everything but peace in the reporting of this "religious" role in the dedication of the Embassy. Of course, the mainstream media-including AP, CNN, ABC, NBC, CBS, NY Times and more-severely criticized Hagee and Jeffress for their conservative stances on Christianity and Israel, referring to them as bigots, Islamophobes, and a host of other "isms" and "phobes." The media seemed to align with the religion of peace (Islam), whose representatives were rioting and committing acts of terror due to the US recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital.
Turkey's dictator Recep Tayipp Erdogan said, "Israel is a terrorist state." Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri said that the move allows "Israel to spill more blood of innocent Palestinians and increases the intensity of extremism that threatens the world community." Iran's Foreign Minister called it "a day of great shame" and referred to Israel as "the world's largest open air prison." The Arab League issued a statement saying that the Embassy move is a "blatant attack on the feelings of Arabs and Muslims," and it called on the international community to oppose this "unjust decision." All of these people claimed that Israel was massacring Palestinians, ignoring that they were violently storming Israel's border.
It should be obvious to anyone with discernment that those who dedicated the US Embassy in Jerusalem want peace, are called to peace, and are willing to work toward peace, though they may know that there will be no real peace until the return of the Messiah. Those who are so worked up over the declaration of Jerusalem as Israel's capital are the ones supporting violence for anything that remotely gives the appearance of recognizing Israel's right to exist. Sadly, the godless news media continuously shows its ignorance of Holy Scripture and its bias against those who speak truth. At the same time, the media perpetuates the agenda of those who are driven by such hate that they want all Jews driven into the sea. Indeed, we need to pray for the peace of Jerusalem.
Have a Blessed and Powerful Day!

USGS Issues Red Alert for Hawaii's Volcano
Signs and Wonders
Hawaii goes on RED ALERT for 'major eruption' of Kilauea volcano as huge ash plume billows 12,000 FEET into the sky with the USGS warning of an 'explosive and imminent' event sparking preparations for mass evacuations
The USGS also raised the volcano alert level at Hawaii's Kilauea to red - the highest level - which indicates a 'major volcanic eruption is imminent, underway, or suspected with hazardous activity both on the ground and in the air.'
A recent lowering of the lava lake at the volcano's Halemaumau crater 'has raised the potential for explosive eruptions' at the volcano, the organisation said.
Plumes of smoke are reaching up to 12,000 feet into the sky and ash is raining on to nearby towns. On Wednesday, The Hawaiian Volcano Observatory recorded a lava temperature of 217 degrees Fahrenheit.
Some of the vents in the volcano are now reportedly releasing such high levels of sulfur dioxide that it's posing a grave danger to anyone nearby.
