Focus on Israel

1. In first, Netanyahu gives testimony in submarines probe - Times of Israel

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu gave testimony to police Tuesday in a massive corruption investigation surrounding the purchase of submarines and naval vessels from a German shipbuilder.

Investigators questioned the prime minister at his official residence in Jerusalem for five hours over the so-called Case 3000, in which the premier is not a suspect. It was the first time the prime minister was questioned about the case.

2. Entrance to J'lem blocked over destruction in Netiv Ha'avot - Israel National News

A few dozen demonstrators arrived this afternoon, Tuesday, to the junction at the entrance of Jerusalem and burned tires in protest of the eviction and destruction in the Netiv Ha'avot neighborhood of Gush Etzion.

The demonstrators waved signs, blocked traffic from entering the city, and shouted slogans such as "The Land of Israel is not real estate."

Police said that the intersection was blocked to traffic towards the entrance of the city. Israel Police officers are there and are working to direct traffic and restore public order.

3. Prince William to meet Netanyahu, Abbas on landmark Middle East trip - Israel Hayom

Britain's Prince William will meet Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas when he makes a landmark trip to the region later this month, his office said on Monday.

William, Queen Elizabeth's grandson and second-in-line to the British throne, will be the first senior British royal to pay an official visit to Israel and the Palestinian territories.

While the trip is at the behest of the British government, the prince's Communications Secretary Jason Knauf said such a visit had been discussed for years.

"Now is the appropriate time and the Duke of Cambridge is the right person to make this visit," Knauf told reporters, referring to William by his title. He said the prince was looking forward to building "a real and enduring relationship with the people of the region."

4. Israeli Defense Minister: Hamas Seizing Helium Supplied to Gaza Hospitals for Use in Incendiary - Algemeiner

Hamas has been seizing helium supplied by Israel to hospitals in Gaza and using it to inflate the incendiary balloons it has been sending across the border in recent weeks, Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman revealed on Tuesday.

During a visit the IDF's Gaza Division headquarters, Lieberman said, "We manage to intercept two-thirds of all the kites and balloons, despite the increase in the use of this tool. Hamas is exploiting in the most despicable and cynical manner the medical system of the Gaza Strip. The helium we supply to hospitals, for medical equipment, mainly for MRI use - instead of this helium going to those patients who need MRIs, [Hamas] uses it to set fields on fire here in the south."

In a message to Gaza residents, Lieberman said, "You have become hostages of the Hamas government. You can build a much better future for your children. You can have all the humanitarian, economic, and civil aid, but first you must topple the Hamas regime."

"As long as the Hamas regime endures, unfortunately, the chance for coexistence, for cooperation, for a better future for Gazans, simply does not exist," he continued.

5. Report: Syrian Army Boosts Air Defenses Near Golan Frontier- Jerusalem Post

BEIRUT - The Syrian army has reinforced its anti-aircraft defenses near the frontier with the Golan Heights, a commander in the regional alliance that backs President Bashar Assad said on Tuesday.

Additional defenses are set to be deployed in the coming days, the commander told Reuters. The stationing of the Russian-made Pantsir S1 weapon aims "to renew the air defense system against Israel in the first degree," added the commander, a non-Syrian who spoke on condition of anonymity.

Syria's multi-sided war has pivoted towards the southwest in recent weeks, risking escalation in an area of major concern to Israel where the conflict has been contained since last year by an agreement underwritten by the United States and Russia.

The Syrian government has been preparing an assault on rebels who hold territory at the border with Israel and Jordan. This led Washington last month to warn of "firm and appropriate measures" against any ceasefire violations.

The Daily Brief

1. Republicans demand vote on any North Korea deal - POLITICO

Congress is determined to have the final say over any deal President Donald Trump strikes with North Korea. As Trump signed a joint statement with Kim Jong Un that offered few details on how the North Korean leader would make good on his vow to denuclearize, Republicans on Capitol Hill said Tuesday that they want and expect the White House to submit any final agreement for their approval. And that means the president and his team will have to work overtime to sell it.

And that means the president and his team will have to work overtime to sell it. What's at stake is more than just the terms of a deal with a dictator who Trump praised as "talented" and "a very good negotiator." It's whether any agreement will outlast the current administration.

"If the president reaches a significant agreement with North Korea, I hope it takes the form of a treaty," said Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.). "Which route that the administration takes will be up to them but I do believe it will need to come to Congress in some form." (Read more)

- Father, we thank You for North Korea's commitment to deneuclearization and we pray the Senate will not do anything to interfere with the progress made by President Trump and our State Department.

- David replied, "What does this have to do with you, you sons of Zeruiah? What right do you have to interfere? Should anyone be put to death in Israel today? Don't I know that today I am king over Israel?" (2 Samuel 19:22)


2. Pentagon begins planning which South Korea exercises should be 'sped up, scaled back or suspended' - Washington Examiner

The U.S. military is making plans to restructure, scale down, and reschedule military training with South Korea, while ensuring troops remain at a high state of readiness, Pentagon officials said Tuesday after President Trump's surprise announcement that the exercises will end. "We will maintain the fighting readiness of our forces," said one official who spoke on condition of anonymity because the policy is still being refined. But several sources said training would continue without the high-profile "in-your-face" named exercises that are regularly announced and given aggressive code names such as Max Thunder and Key Resolve.

"The Department of Defense welcomes the positive news coming out of the summit and fully supports the ongoing, diplomatically-led efforts with the Democratic People's Republic of Korea," said a statement from chief Pentagon spokesperson Dana White. "Our alliances remain ironclad, and ensure peace and stability in the region. The Presidential summit outcome is the first step along the path to the goal: complete, verifiable and irreversible denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula and a free and open Indo-Pacific."

- Father, we pray You will give our military commanders wisdom as they continue to defend American interests in the Northern Pacific.

3. Trump says Trudeau's comments are going to cost Canada 'a lot of money' - CNBC

President Donald Trump is still angry at Justin Trudeau for a perceived slight during a speech by the Canadian Prime Minister following the G-7 meeting. Trudeau said after the G-7 meeting that the aluminum and steel tariffs imposed by the U.S. on Canada on national security grounds were insulting and that "Canadians are polite, we're reasonable, but we also will not be pushed around."

Trump then tweeted Saturday evening, "PM Justin Trudeau of Canada acted so meek and mild during our @G7 meetings only to give a news conference after I left saying that, 'US Tariffs were kind of insulting' and he 'will not be pushed around.' Very dishonest & weak." The president also withdrew U.S. support for a G-7 communique. "We are being taken advantage of by virtually every one of those countries," Trump said Tuesday of the G-7.

It's unclear what additional action the U.S. would take against Canada. The U.S. at the end of May imposed tariffs of 25 percent on steel imports and 10 percent on aluminum imports against Canada, Mexico and the European Union. The U.S. and Canada are in the middle of renegotiating the North American Free Trade Agreement along with Mexico. (Read more)

- Father, we ask You to bring the nations of the world into fair and reciprocal relationships with the United States and pray for Your Spirit to heal this rift with Canada.

- Even my close friend, someone I trusted, one who shared my bread, has turned against me. (Psalm 41:9)


4. US economic advisor Larry Kudlow in good condition following heart attack, White House says - CNBC

White House economic advisor Larry Kudlow, an important voice in U.S. trade policy, suffered a heart attack and is in good condition at Walter Reed Medical Center. "Earlier today National Economic Council Director and Assistant to the President Larry Kudlow, experienced what his doctors say was a very mild heart attack," press secretary Sarah Sanders told reporters on Monday evening. "Larry is currently in good condition at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, and his doctors expect he will make a full and speedy recovery. The president and his administration send their thoughts and prayers to Larry and his family," she said.

Just last weekend, Kudlow accused Canada of directing "polarizing" comments toward the United States following a fractious G-7 meeting of advanced economies. The conclave in Quebec pitted the United States against its traditional allies, which are trying to head off a full-blown trade war. "Here's the thing," he told CNN, speaking of Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. "He really kind of stabbed us in the back." (Read more)

- Father, we pray Larry Kudlow will fully recover from this heart attack. Help him make whatever changes he needs to better care for his body and continue his important work for our nation.

- Listen, my son, and be wise, and set your heart on the right path: Do not join those who drink too much wine or gorge themselves on meat, (Psalm 23:19-20)


5. Politicians fear for safety as threats against Congress skyrocket - NY Post

Rep. Barry Loudermilk of Georgia bought body armor. Rep. Gregg Harper hired armed security guards for events back home in Mississippi. And Rep. Dan Dovonan fortified his Brooklyn and Staten Island offices with security cameras and buzzer systems. This is the new normal for members of Congress. One year after the horrific congressional baseball shooting that almost took the life of Rep. Steve Scalise and former Hill staffer Matt Mika, members are keenly aware that serving in public office has put a target on their backs.

In 2016, there were 902 threatening incidents and communications against members of Congress. By 2017, the reports had more than doubled to about 2,000, according to the House Sergeant at Arms office. In response, the House Administration Committee allocated $25,000 to each member in 2017 and again in 2018 to beef up their personal and office security, prompting members to hire bodyguards for events and equip offices with panic buttons and shatter-resistant glass.

Since the baseball shooting, Loudermilk has been reminded regularly how perilous life is. Three months after the shooting in September, he got rear-ended off the road, flipping his vehicle several times. About a week after the car crash, a gunman shot at the car he was driving with his wife in the North Georgian mountains. Then he was on the Amtrak train Jan. 31 with other Republicans heading to a West Virginia retreat that hit a garbage truck, killing one person. "Do I feel safer? No," said Loudermilk, whose baseball practice clothes still have Mika's blood. "Threats went up significantly. We have these - almost like wanted posters - in our district office of people who have made threats against me and my staff." (Read more)

- Father, we lift up all our elected officials and pray for their safety and peace of mind as they serve the American people.

- In God, whose word I praise-in God I trust and am not afraid. What can mere mortals do to me? (Psalm 56:4)


6. The Eight States that Will Determine Which Party Controls the House of Representatives - Breitbart

The outcome of each of these competitive House races will be influenced by three types of issues: some that are local and specific to that district, some that are statewide and specific to that state, and some that are national in nature. Of the 435 seats in the lower chamber of Congress, 336 are not competitive-180 held by Democrats, 156 held by Republicans, according to the Cook Political Report's ratings. Only 15 of the 99 competitive seats are currently held by Democrats, while 84 are held by Republicans.

The simple math-24 more non competitive seats are held by Democrats than are held by Republicans-and the Republicans have 69 more seats at risk in competitive districts than Democrats-suggests that the Democrats are well positioned to secure the net gain of 23 seats they need to secure a narrow 218 to 217 majority in the November 2018 mid-term elections. Fifty-one of the 99 competitive races are in those eight states-California (10), Pennsylvania (9), Florida (7), Ohio (5), Minnesota (5), New Jersey (5), New York (5), and Michigan (5).

The generic Congressional ballot, which looked so promising for Democrats in December, when they had a 16 point advantage, tells another story now, six months later. The Real Clear Politics Average of Polls currently shows the Democrats with a 7.6 point generic ballot advantage, barely above the five point generic ballot advantage most political analysts say Democrats need to break even, due to Republican success in state legislatures gerrymandering Congressional Districts after the 2010 census. (Read more)

- Father, we pray Your Spirit will hover over our elections, in every district and every state. Help our people choose righteous people of integrity to represent them throughout the nation.

- For I considered all this in my heart, so that I could declare it all: that the righteous and the wise and their works are in the hand of God. (Ecclesiastes 9:1a)


7. Trump and Sessions create amazing and unusual week at the Justice Department - Washington Examiner

Last week was an amazing and unusual week at the Department of Justice, and it went largely unnoticed by the mainstream media. Attorney General Jeff Sessions, with the approval of President Trump, submitted court filings in two lawsuits agreeing that Obamacare will be unconstitutional as of Jan. 1, 2019, and that DACA is and always has been unlawful. Thus, DOJ will not defend Obamacare nor will it defend DACA on the merits.

Not since the Obama administration flipped its position on DOMA has the DOJ declined to defend something this important. And unlike the DOMA case, in both the Obamacare case and the DACA case, DOJ is relying on existing rulings from the Supreme Court and the 5th Circuit, respectively, in formulating its positions. While some may say that Sessions and Trump made the logical and correct decisions in both of these cases (myself included), it does not change the fact that both decisions were bold defenses of constitutional government and the restoration of the separation of powers - both severely damaged under the prior administration. (Read more)

- Almighty God, we thank You for this good report - that lawlessness will no longer prevail in our nation!

- The Son of Man will send forth His angels, and they will gather out of His kingdom all stumbling blocks, and those who commit lawlessness. (Matthew 13:41)


8. Treasury Hits Russian FSB for Underwater Reconnaissance of Internet Cables - FreeBeacon

The Treasury Department on Monday announced the imposition of economic sanctions against Russian entities engaged in targeting undersea internet cables and cyber spying inside critical U.S. infrastructures. For the first time, Treasury revealed one of the sanctioned companies, Divetechnoservices, has worked with the FSB since 2007 to spy on underwater cables used to connect the internet around the world. The Russian underwater equipment company in 2011 was paid $1.5 million by the FSB to procure a submersible craft for underwater cable spying.

American defense officials, however, have said Russia has been aggressively probing undersea cables in the Atlantic over the past several years. Russia's Yantar intelligence-gathering ship, which makes annual forays to the U.S. East Coast, is believed to be conducting reconnaissance of undersea cables, according to defense officials. The Washington Free Beacon reported in 2015 that the Yantar is equipped with deep-sea surveillance craft and cable cutting equipment. The ship was engaged in identifying undersea cable trunk lines and nodes.

Pentagon intelligence officials said one major target of the Russian underwater reconnaissance is identifying links used by the Department of Defense Information Network, or DoDIN, which uses dedicated military links and leased communications and computer systems. Severing underwater internet cables would severely disrupt the highly networked U.S. military as well as civilian populations. (Read more)

- Father, we pray no one will be able (or willing) to destroy this important infrastructure. Give our nation wisdom to counter these types of threats.

- The righteous will never be uprooted, but the wicked will not remain in the land. (Proverbs 10:30)


9. Iran Admits To Facilitating 9/11 Terror Attacks - FreeBeacon

Iranian officials, in a first, have admitted to facilitating the 9/11 terrorist attacks in the U.S. by secretly aiding the free travel of al Qaeda operatives who eventually went on to fly commercial airliners into the Twin Towers in New York City, according to new remarks from a senior Iranian official.

Mohammad-Javad Larijani, an international affairs assistant in the Iran's judiciary, disclosed in Farsi-language remarks broadcast on Iran's state-controlled television that Iranian intelligence officials secretly helped provide the al Qaeda attackers with passage and gave them refuge in the Islamic Republic, according to an English translation published by Al Arabiya. The remarks represent the first time senior Iranian officials have publicly admitted to aiding al Qaeda and playing a direct role in facilitating the 9/11 attacks.

Larijani admitted that Iranian officials did not stamp the passports of the al Qaeda militants in order to obfuscate their movements and prevent detection by foreign governments. Al Qaeda operatives also were given safe refuge in Iran. (Read more)

- Father, the blood of the 2,977 victims of this terrorist attack still cry out for justice. We pray You help President Trump respond to this confirmation of Iranian involvement.

- "Let all their wickedness come before you; deal with them as you have dealt with me because of all my sins. My groans are many and my heart is faint." (Lam. 1:22)


10. Al Qaeda in North Africa Threatens Attacks on Western Companies - FreeBeacon

The al Qaeda terrorist group in North Africa last month issued a threat to attack Western companies, and U.S. security officials are taking the threat seriously. The May 8 statement by the group al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb indicated that attack planning against French and other Western companies is advanced and that strikes could be carried out during the Islamic holiday month of Ramadan that ends June 14.

Al Qaeda terrorists in Somalia conducted a second attack on a military base in the southern part of the country, detonating a car bomb outside the base late Saturday. Al Shabab stated on its website, Calamada.com, the attack killed 50 Somali soldiers. The base is the same location where an Army Special Forces commando was killed in an attack Friday. Four other U.S. troops were wounded. The commandos were part of a training mission for Somalian and Kenyan troops. The Pentagon on Saturday identified the soldier as Staff Sgt. Alexander W. Conrad, 26, of Chandler, Arizona, who was killed from "enemy indirect fire." A State Department security report issued June 8 said all Western companies are at risk of attack, including those in AQIM target group-natural resources, mining, and state-owned and government supported businesses.

The U.S. forces are working to counter the terrorist threat posed by al Qaeda, al-Shabab, and the Islamic State. "Our strategy in East Africa is to build partner capacity to ensure that violent extremist organizations, who wish harm in the region, wish harm on the European continent, and ultimately wish to harm the United States, are contained," said Gen. Thomas Waldhauser, Africa Command commander. "Simply put, we're working to prevent atrocious acts before they come to fruition." (Read more)

- Father, we are reminded the enemy continues to establish a foothold wherever he can. We ask You to comfort the family of Staff Sgt. Conrad, the latest American to lose his life to Al Qaeda. We pray for the people pulled into Islamic terrorism to be delivered and saved by Your mercy.

But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you. (Matt. 5:44)


The Daily Jot

Importance of good leadership

June 13, 2018

The Bible says in Proverbs 29:2, "When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice: but when the wicked bears rule, the people mourn." Proverbs 28:15 says, "As a roaring lion, and a charging bear; so is a wicked ruler over the poor people." America has had poor leadership for so long that many are repulsed by good leadership. Case in point is how the media has handled President Donald Trump's dealings with North Korea. The examples we have seen for decades in leadership from the White House have bent toward appeasing the wicked rather than dealing with them straightforward. Many Americans have been so lulled into the group think of appeasement, they are offended by the alternative.

The definition of appease is "to make concessions to (someone, such as an aggressor or a critic) often at the sacrifice of principles." That is exactly what we have seen in the White House for so long that when someone doesn't appease an enemy, many get nervous to the point of apoplexy. President Jimmy Carter appeased the radical Iranians when they stormed the US Embassy in Tehran. This led to the establishment of the Islamic terrorist reign of the Ayatollahs. Carter did much the same with the Palestinian Liberation Organization in appeasing Yassir Arafat, rewarding his terrorist acts with White House recognition and billions of US foreign aid dollars, much of which Arafat pocketed.

President Ronald Reagan persisted in calling the Soviet Union an evil empire. The news media and the liberals attacked him relentlessly, saying he would lead America into World War III. Reagan's straightforward tenacity eventually led to the dismantling of a regime that was responsible for the deaths of some 80 million people. When terrorist Moammar Kadafi of Libya was found responsible for the bombing of a West Berlin discotheque, Reagan bombed Kadaffi's compound in Libya. The media freaked. The Democrats cried. But no problems with Libya again until the most recent ex-"president." After the Reagan presidency, the long, slippery slope of appeasement took root in American leadership culture.

Bush 41, Clinton, Bush 43, and the most recent ex-"president" all appeased Islam--from Saudi Arabia to Iran to the Palestinian Liberation Organization-terrorist sponsors all. Europe followed America's lead, kissing the ring fingers of the Islamic elite, appeasement on steroids. So it is no surprise that when a leader like Trump steps up and figuratively thumps a two-bit dictator in the chest, the world responds with fear and trepidation. Remember a year ago the world was talking about how Trump would start a nuclear war with North Korea. But Trump's strong, no-nonsense leadership has brought the promise of something good. He painted a positive vision of a developed, prosperous North Korea. Kim Jong Un agreed to lay down his arms. Time will test the success, but there is at least a chance. Good leadership in important.

Have a Blessed and Powerful Day!

The Summit Miracle:

God Has Answered our Prayers in Amazing Ways!


Editor's note:

This morning we woke up to the news of a series of outcomes in the aftermath of our President meeting face-to-face last night with North Korea's President Kim Jung Un.

What an amazing series of headlines these are!

We continue to praise God for giving us a man to serve as our President, who is gifted with keen insight in the realm of negotiations. President Trump has the ability to walk in the midst of the darkest -- and most dangerous -- realms of evil, without fear. Walking instead in the LOVE of our Messiah, he has triumphed where others have failed.

Let us pause today and give thanks for the wonderful gifts God has given us: the gift of our salvation through the Blood of our Savior; and the gift of a President who is leading us into His Kingdom destiny for America. Praise God!

- Lord God, we do give thanks to You today for the breakthrough that came last night, and for the results that are now following. Lord God, we continue to pledge that we will continue to intercede for all the peoples of the Korean Peninsula, both North and South, that they might be richly blessed in the days to come, and be set free, in Your name, amen.

- "Let everything that hath breath praise the Lord. Praise ye the Lord." (Psalm 150:6)


1. President Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un attend signing event - Fox News

President Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un met in Singapore Tuesday for a historic summit and signed an agreement committing to the "building of a lasting and robust peace regime" on the Korean peninsula.

"We're prepared to start a new history, and we're ready to start a new chapter between our nations," Trump said at a news conference.

"Peace is always worth the effort," he said. "Anyone can make war, but only the most courageous can make peace." (Read more)


2. Denuclearization - Fox News

Trump and Kim signed a document promising to work for "complete denuclearization of the Korean peninsula." Trump later told Fox News he thinks Kim will begin to dismantle his nuclear program "virtually immediately."

"I just think that we are now going to start the process of denuclearization of North Korea, and I believe that he's going back and will start it virtually immediately," Trump said. "And he's already indicated that and you look at what he's done."

Trump also said Kim will be destroying a "major" missile testing site "very soon," an agreement they came to after signing the document.


3. Recovering American soldiers - Fox News

Trump said the remains of U.S. soldiers who died in the Korean War will be brought home. Nearly 7,800 U.S. soldiers are still unaccounted for from the Korean War. Around 5,300 of those people were lost in North Korea.

Both Kim and Trump signed an agreement for the recovery of the remains of American soldiers as well as the immediate repatriation of those who have already been identified.

Trump said the end of the Korean War, which formally has not ended, "could happen" soon.


4. Ending South Korean exercises - Fox News

Trump promised to stop the annual U.S.-South Korean military drills and said he plans to remove the 28,500 American troops stationed in the South as a deterrent against a North Korean attack.

"I want to bring our soldiers back home," Trump said, though he added it's "not part of the equation right now."

"We will be stopping the war games, which will save us a tremendous amount of money unless and until we see the future negotiation is not going along like it should," Trump said. "But we'll be saving a tremendous amount of money. Plus, I think it's very provocative."


5. Sanctions stay - Fox News

Trump said, for now, sanctions on North Korea will remain in place. They will be removed when the U.S. can be assured that nuclear weapons "are no longer a factor," he said.

He also said the U.S. had planned to place some 300 additional sanctions on North Korea recently, but he decided to hold off as it would have been "disrespectful" ahead of the meeting.

1. Tev Aviv U: No Hatikva at graduation ceremony - Israel National News

Tel-Aviv University's Faculty of Humanities has decided to ban the singing of the Israeli national anthem, Hatikva, during its graduation ceremony last week.

According to a report by Channel 10 News, Professor Leo Corry, the new Dean of the Humanities Faculty at Tel Aviv University, ordered that the anthem be dropped from the ceremony "out of consideration of the feelings of Arab students."

In place of Hatikva, the ceremony concluded with a performance of Israel singer Arik Einstein's hit song, 'Me and You.'

Several humanities students expressed outrage that the national anthem was banned from the graduation ceremony. (Read more)


2. 'Kotel belongs to everyone, even Christians' - Israel National News

Labor Party Chairman Avi Gabbay spoke Monday evening at a conference of the American Jewish Committee (AJC) and addressed the controversies surrounding the Western Wall.

"There are haredi Jews, Orthodox, Reform, Conservatives, and also Christians here. We are all brothers, and the Kotel belongs to all of us equally," Gabbay said. "If I am chosen as Prime Minister, I will implement the Western Wall Deal as previously agreed upon." (Read more)


3. Israel destroys underwater Hamas terror tunnel - Israel Hayom

Israel recently destroyed a Hamas-built tunnel leading from the Gaza Strip into the Mediterranean Sea, designed to be used by the terrorist group to carry out attacks inside Israel, the Israel Defense Forces said Sunday.

Military spokesman Lt. Col. Jonathan Conricus said that Israeli aircraft bombed a position belonging to Hamas' naval forces in northern Gaza, incapacitating the group's first-of-its-kind tunnel leading into the sea. He said it was designed to allow divers to slip out of Gaza undetected and attack Israeli targets. The tunnel was dug about 3 kilometers (2 miles) south of the border with Israel and stretched dozens of meters into the sea, he said.

"We knew about this tunnel for several months thanks to the intelligence provided by the Israeli Navy," a senior Israeli Navy officer said. "What makes this interesting is the part connecting the tunnel to the sea. Hamas expended a lot in building this."

"It was only 3 kilometers from the border and it was only several dozen meters long. Hamas carried out training in this tunnel involving dozens of commandos," the officer continued, adding that Hamas' military wing includes dozens of frogmen. (Read more)


4. Report claims Iranian-backed militants are dressing as Syrian soldiers to avoid IDF attention - Jerusalem Online

According to a report by the Wall Street Journal released on Friday, Hezbollah and other Iranian-backed militants near Israel's northern border are disguising themselves as Syrian forces in order to avoid detection by the Israeli Air Force. In the report, rebel fighters claimed that the disguises are orchestrated and supported by the Syrian Assad regime. Over the past few months, the Israeli Air Force struck multiple Iranian-held targets in Syria.

Ahmad Azam, who commands forces in the Syrian rebel Salvation Army, was quoted claiming that the Iranian-backed forces are "leaving in their Hezbollah uniform and they are returning in regime vehicles and dressed in regular [Syrian] army uniforms." Azam also claimed that many of the Iranian-backed militants are given official ID cards from the Syrian government that belonged to now dead Syrian government forces. Two weeks ago, JOL reported that Israel and Russia had reached an agreement to withdraw Iranian-backed forces from Syria's southern region, near the Israeli border. JOL also reported that the Russian foreign minister was also quoted as stating that only Assad forces have a right to be present in southern Syria. (Read more)


5. Expert: Palestine Fails International Law Test For Statehood At ICC- Jerusalem Post

Experts need to continue to press back on the International Criminal Court's recognition of Palestine as a state, because "there is still time and room to counter this," international law scholar Andrew Tucker told The Jerusalem Post.

Tucker and Matthijs De Blois of The Hague Initiative for International Cooperation held a press conference along with NGO Monitor and its legal expert, Anne Herzberg, on Thursday night to discuss their book Israel on Trial: The Role of the UN and the EU in Lawfare and the Delegitimization of Israel, which advocates for Israeli positions on a range of international law issues, including dropping the ICC war crimes probe of Israelis.

Tucker said while he recognized that the ICC Prosecution and the ICC's legislative body - the Assembly of State Parties - recognized Palestine as a state in 2015, enabling it to ask the ICC Prosecution to probe alleged Israeli war crimes, he said a party could file a motion with the ICC's Pretrial Chamber to veto the ICC Prosecution's acceptance of Palestine as a state.

The Daily Brief

1. Trump calls out 'Fool Trade' after G7, says Trudeau acted 'hurt' - Fox News

President Trump fired off a series of tweets early Monday criticizing Canada and its prime minister over trade policy, saying that "Fair Trade is now to be called Fool Trade if it is not Reciprocal." "According to a Canada release, they make almost 100 Billion Dollars in Trade with U.S. (guess they were bragging and got caught!). Minimum is 17B. Tax Dairy from us at 270%. Then [Canadian Prime Minister] Justin [Trudeau] acts hurt when called out!" Trump added. He continued, "Sorry, we cannot let our friends, or enemies, take advantage of us on Trade anymore. We must put the American worker first!" The president sent the messages from Singapore approximately 24 hours before his scheduled summit meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. Trump arrived in Singapore directly from a contentions G7 summit in Quebec, where he roiled his allies by first agreeing to a group statement on trade only to withdraw from it while complaining that he had been blindsided by Trudeau's criticism of Trump's tariff threats at a summit-ending news conference. (Read more)

- Lord, we ask for You to bring a revelation of truth to Mr. Trudeau for their inequality in trade. We pray for peace regarding every area of US and international trade, and thank You that we have a strong President who fights for our workers. We pray for justice in international trade, and equitable measures for all.

- "For the Lord is a God of Justice." (Isaiah 30:18c)


2. DOJ refusing to give Grassley access to agent who interviewed Flynn - Fox News

Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley isn't backing down as the Justice Department rebuffs his repeated attempts to speak with the FBI agent whose interview with Michael Flynn was used to indict the ex-national security adviser in the Russia probe. "This is no ordinary criminal case," Grassley, R-Iowa, wrote in a June 6 letter to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein. "Congress has a right to know the full story and to know it now." Grassley is pressing his request anew after the DOJ once again rejected his bid to speak with FBI Agent Joe Pientka and to obtain the FBI's records of the interview. Flynn pleaded guilty in Special Counsel Robert Mueller's Russia probe to making false statements to the FBI in that interview. He also lost his job at the White House after he was said to have misled Vice President Pence about a discussion with then-Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak. (Read more)

- Lord, we are asking that You intervene to allow truth to be revealed in every area of these investigations. We pray that the Department of Justice will live up to their name and provide what is needed. We also pray that the blockage by Rosenstein be totally stopped.

- "Behold You desire truth in the inward parts, and in the hidden part You will make me to know wisdom." (Psalm 51:6)


3. Nunes sets deadline for DOJ to provide documents on alleged FBI informant, claiming 'obstruction'- Fox News

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes, R-Calif., has given the Justice Department until Tuesday to provide access to documents concerning the FBI's alleged informant looking into any Russian ties to President Trump's 2016 campaign. In a letter sent Friday to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, Nunes said the records should be provided to all committee members "and designated staff" rather than just the so-called "Gang of Eight" -- which refers to Republican and Democratic leaders in both houses of Congress as well as top lawmakers from the intelligence panels. "DOJ continues to obfuscate and delay its production using an array of tactics, such as incorrectly categorizing the requested documents as Gang-of-Eight-level material in order to limit access," wrote Nunes, referring to an April 30 subpoena for the documents. "Such conduct by DOJ is unacceptable because the Gang-of-Eight is a legal fiction that has no basis outside of the confines of Presidential approval and reporting of covert actions." (Read more)

- Father, June 12 has many major things happening. We pray Your Hand and Wisdom in them all. We pray that the DOJ will turn over the documents.

- "Oh send out Your light and your truth! Let them lead me." (Psalm 43:3)


4. Feinstein bill challenges Trump's zero-tolerance border policy - Washington Times

Senate Democrats announced legislation Friday to prevent authorities from separating children from their parents at the border, in a move that would likely punch a hole in the middle of the Trump administration's new zero-tolerance border policy. Sponsored by Sen. Dianne Feinstein, the bill is the first major concrete effort to try to push back against the zero-tolerance policy. "The United States must not be a country that traumatizes young children by separating them from their parents," the California Democrat said. The new zero-tolerance policy doesn't require separation of children from parents, but it does push prosecutors to file criminal charges against immigrants who jump the border - ramping up a tactic that had been used relatively less often by previous administrations. Once those charges are filed against adults, they are taken to jail - and any children they brought with them are separated and put in the custody of social workers at the federal Health Department. (Read more)

- Father, let only Your will be accomplished in any legislation regarding illegal immigration. While we are sympathetic to the plight of these children, we also must find a way of fairly dealing with their parents. We pray for wisdom for our leadership in this matter.

- "Observe mercy and justice, and wait on Your God continually." (Hosea 12:6b)


5. Trump's clemency list has 3,000 names, NFL players invited to add more - Washington Examiner

President Trump said Friday he is reviewing a massive number of potential clemency recipients, and invited football players kneeling for the national anthem to add more to the list. "We have 3,000 names. We're looking at them," Trump told reporters on the South Lawn of the White House. "Of the 3,000 names, many of those names really have been treated unfairly." Trump repeatedly stressed his desire to give clemency to ordinary people, rather than just famous applicants. (Read more)

- Father, we praise You that we have a President who cares about "ordinary people," and wants to do right by them. We ask for wisdom as he reviews the names and circumstances, that only Your will be done regarding the requests.

- "Righteousness and justice are the foundation of Your throne; mercy and truth go before Your face." (Psalm 89:14)


6. Rand Paul Standing in Way of Bill to Aid Christians Displaced by ISIS - Christian Post

Former presidential candidate and Republican Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky is being pressured by multiple religious freedom groups to lift a hold he placed on a bill that proponents say would benefit Christians and Yazidis who faced genocide at the hands of the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria. This week, Paul's office has received letters from the International Religious Freedom Roundtable - a politically diverse coalition of human rights advocacy organizations and activists - the Catholic fraternal organization Knights of Columbus and the county chairmen of the Kentucky Republican Party. The letters all have the same basic message and call on the senator to lift the hold he placed on H.R. 390, the Iraq and Syria Genocide Emergency Relief and Accountability Act, earlier this year. A Senate hold is a procedure that allows a Senator to try to block a measure from reaching the floor for a vote but can be undone through a cloture motion. A letter dated May 30 from the International Religious Freedom Roundtable was signed by 12 religious freedom NGOs and over 20 notable individual religious freedom advocates, including former Congressman Frank Wolf of Virginia, the namesake of the Frank R. Wolf International Religious Freedom Act of 2016. (Read more)

- Lord, we ask that You move on Senator Paul's heart to remove that hold and allow the persecuted to be assisted.

- "Keep your heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life." (Proverbs 4:23)


7. Pence Vows Trump Admin Is Aiding Middle East Christians, Fighting Bureaucratic Delays- Christian Post

Vice President Mike Pence assured conservative Christian activists and donors Saturday night that the Trump administration is still following through on its promise to provide direct assistance to Iraqi and Syrian Christians despite complaints that some religious minorities groups have not seen the promised aid. About seven months ago, Pence first declared a major policy change in which the U.S. government would bypass the United Nations and provide direct humanitarian assistance to persecuted Christians and other religious minorities that faced genocide at the hands of the Islamic State. (Read more)

- Father, we thank You for a godly Vice President who cares about Your people. We pray that You will bring all proposed assistance to these groups who have been systematically murdered.

- "I will be with him in trouble, I will deliver him and honor him." (Psalm 91: 15b)


8. China hacked a Navy contractor and secured a trove of highly sensitive data on submarine warfare - Washington Post

Chinese government hackers have compromised the computers of a Navy contractor, stealing massive amounts of highly sensitive data related to undersea warfare - including secret plans to develop a supersonic anti-ship missile for use on U.S. submarines by 2020, according to American officials.

The breaches occurred in January and February, the officials said, speaking on the condition of anonymity to discuss an ongoing investigation. The hackers targeted a contractor who works for the Naval Undersea Warfare Center, a military organization headquartered in Newport, R.I., that conducts research and development for submarines and underwater weaponry. The officials did not identify the contractor. Taken were 614 gigabytes of material relating to a closely held project known as Sea Dragon, as well as signals and sensor data, submarine radio room information relating to cryptographic systems, and the Navy submarine development unit's electronic warfare library.

The Washington Post agreed to withhold certain details about the compromised missile project at the request of the Navy, which argued that their release could harm national security. (Read one)

- Lord, we ask that You put a stop to the hacking by China, and harden our cyber structure to prevent a reoccurrence.

- "Oh let the wickedness of the wicked come to an end." (Psalm 7:9a)


9. Supreme Court gives green light to Ohio's voting roll purge - Fox News

The Supreme Court ruled Monday that Ohio is allowed to purge eligible voters from the state's registration records if they have not cast ballots in a while. In a 5-4 ruling issued by Justice Samuel Alito, the high court ruled that Ohio's law to trigger the removal of inactive voters from the state's registry can be enforced. State officials argued that the process used by Ohio for more than 20 years is constitutional and legal, and meant to ensure election security.

Civil liberties groups challenged the state's program for removing thousands of people from voter rolls based on their failure to vote in recent elections, claiming it violated the National Voter Registration Act. (Read more)

- Father, we thank You that the court found that people who haven't voted in a long time can be removed from the roles.

- "Among the upright there is favor." (Proverbs 14:9b)


10. UMC Minnesota Conference Removes 'Father' From Apostles' Creed for Worship Service - Christian Post

The Minnesota Annual Conference of the United Methodist Church edited the historic Apostles' Creed so that it removed references to God as "Father" for a worship service.

The Apostles' Creed is an affirmation of Christian faith that goes back to the early Church and is still common in many churches that include liturgy as part of worship. At the multiday Minnesota Conference, which went from May 30-June 1, liturgical folders reportedly included a copy of the creed that removed gender specific language for God, changing "God the Father Almighty" to "God the Creator Almighty" and "Jesus Christ His Only Son" to "Jesus Christ God's Only Son."

The Christian Post reached out to the Minnesota Conference for further details about the edited creed and its use, and will update this piece when a response is received. (Read more)

- Father, we are saddened by this move, and ask that You reveal yourself to those who have done this thing. Let them no longer be carried away by society's "norms" but cling to Your truth in all things.

- "I, the Lord do not change." (Malachi 3:6)

The cross and the anti-cross


Turkey's "President" Recep Tayyip Erdogan is a possible prophetic figure as he leads Turkey toward reviving the Islamic Caliphate of the Ottoman Empire which ruled for 624 years from 1299 to 1923. Its control over the Middle East was far greater than the Roman Empire. Some scholars now believe that a revived Ottoman Empire is the one prophesied as the end-time antichrist system. The end time battle of Ezekiel 38 is led from specific locations in Turkey--Magog, Meshech, Tubal. Also Christ is quoted in Revelation 2:13 that Pergamos is "even where Satan's seat is...where Satan dwells." Pergamon is in Turkey. Now Erdogan is threatening a war between the cross and the crescent.

On June 8, Austria announced its intention to expel up to 60 Turkish-funded imams and their families from the country and shut down seven mosques. Officials in the Austrian government claimed that the move was inspired by a 2015 law which banned foreign funding of religious groups and created a duty for Muslim societies to have "a positive fundamental view towards (Austria) state and society." Austrian Chancellor Sebastian Kurz Friday told reporters that "Political Islam's parallel societies and radicalizing tendencies have no place in our country." Of course, the news media is labeling the move as coming from the "far right" politicians in Austria, although Austria's opposition parties also supported the action.

One Imam took to twitter, saying "Austria's decision to close down seven mosques and deport imams with a lame excuse is a reflection of the anti-Islam, racist and discriminatory populist wave in this country." Reaction from Ankara was even harsher. Erdogan said in a Saturday speech, "These measures taken by the Austrian prime minister are, I fear, leading the world towards a war between the cross and the crescent. They say they're going to kick our religious men out of Austria. Do you think we will not react if you do such a thing?" What does Erdogan expect has been going on since the inception of Islam by Mohammad around the year 610?

It was Mohammad who commanded Muslims to maim and kill Christians and Jews when he wrote the Koran. Sura 9:5 " . . . slay the infidels wherever ye find them, and take them (captive), and besiege them, and prepare for them each ambush." Sura 8:12 says, "Verily, I am with you, so keep firm those who have believed. I will cast terror into the hearts of those who have disbelieved, so strike them over the necks, and smite over all their fingers and toes." Sura 4:55 says, "Lo! Those who disbelieve Our revelations, We shall expose them to the Fire. As often as their skins are consumed We shall exchange them for fresh skins that they may taste the torment. Lo! Allah is ever Mighty, Wise." Erdogan's war against the cross is Mohammad's war. It's part of Islam's peace. Austria knows it, so should the rest of the world.

Undoing the deadly deeds

AP reports that President Donald Trump and North Korea's Kim Jong Un concluded an "extraordinary nuclear summit" Tuesday with the US president pledging unspecified "security guarantees" to the North and Kim recommitting to the "complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula." AP reports that In a very choreographed ceremony on a Singapore island, "Trump and Kim came together for a summit that seemed unthinkable months ago, clasping hands in front of a row of alternating U.S. and North Korean flags, holding a one-on-one meeting, additional talks with advisers and a working lunch." Trump is undoing what President Clinton did some 25 years ago.

President Bill Clinton's long-held belief on nuclear weapons was that if everyone had them, nobody would use them and the world would be a safer place. On June 11, 1993, the US agreed to not use force or nuclear weapons against North Korea if it remained in the nonproliferation treaty. North Korea continued to develop its nuclear weapons program. On October 18, 1994, after 17 months of negotiations, Clinton signed a deal to give North Korea light water reactor nuclear technology if it stopped building nuclear weapons, saying, "Today all Americans should know that as a result of this achievement on Korea, our Nation will be safer and the future of our people more secure."

In his commitment to communist North Korea, Clinton is quoted as saying, "This US-North Korean agreement will help to achieve a long-standing and vital American objective: an end to the threat of nuclear proliferation on the Korean peninsula." Heritage Foundation archives document in an October 20 letter to North Korean strongman Kim Jong Il, (father of current dictator Kim Jong Un) Clinton vastly expanded America's commitments under the formal agreement to finance fuel shipments and reactors, ease its long-standing trade embargo and move toward first-ever diplomatic relations with North Korea. North Korea went on to develop nuclear weapons and to assist Iran in its nuclear weapons program.

Instead of having a safer future, the world is far more dangerous because of Clinton's reckless shenanigans. A very similar situation exists with Iran because of the immediate past "president." The situation with Iran is far worse at this stage of the game because the ex-"president" gave Iran billions of dollars in untraceable cash, further funding nuclear ambitions and global terrorism-all in the name of peace. Romans 12:18 says, "If it be possible, as much as lies in you, live peaceably with all men." Peace is a two-way street, especially when millions of lives are at stake. Sadly, Trump is dealing with a very dangerous world created in a big part by wrong-minded Democrat American presidents.

Have a Blessed and Powerful Day!
