1.Netanyahu associate turns state's evidence - Israel National News

Shlomo Filber, the Director General of the Communications Ministry and a close associate of Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, on Tuesday night signed a deal to turn state's witness in the so-called "Case 4000".

In his testimony, Filber is expected to say that Netanyahu instructed him to grant regulatory benefits to the Bezeq communications company. Police suspect that in exchange for these benefits, chief Bezeq shareholder Shaul Elovitch provided sympathetic coverage to the prime minister and his wife on the Walla! news website, which he also owns.

According to the agreement, Filber will incriminate Netanyahu in exchange for a light sentence. Filber himself, who was one of the seven people arrested this week in connection with the case, is suspected of taking bribes, disrupting interrogation procedures, and accepting something fraudulently.

2. Iran threatens to 'level Tel Aviv,' kill Netanyahu if Israel attacks - Times of Israel

Tel Aviv will be "leveled to the ground" if Israel attacks Iran, and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will not escape with his life, a senior official in the Islamic republic's regime threatened.

His comments came in response to Netanyahu's speech on Sunday at the Munich Security Conference, in which the prime minister brandished a piece of an Iranian drone downed in Israeli airspace and threatened direct military action against Iran.

"About Netanyahu's unwise words, I should say that if they carry out the slightest unwise move against Iran, we will level Tel Aviv to the ground," Mohsen Rezaei, secretary of Iran's Expediency Council and former chief of the country's Revolutionary Guards, told the Hezbollah-affiliated Arabic-language al-Manar TV channel Monday.

Adding a personal threat to the Israeli leader's life, Rezaei added that Tehran "will not give Netanyahu any opportunity to flee," Fars News reported.

3. Russia's foreign minister slams Iranian threats to destroy Israel - World Israel News

Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov condemned Iranian threats to wipe Israel off the map, Russia's TASS News Agency reported.

Speaking at the opening of the Valdai International Discussion Club's conference, titled "Russia in the Middle East: Playing on All Fields," Lavrov said, ""We have stated many times that we won't accept the statements that Israel, as a Zionist state, should be destroyed and wiped off the map. I believe this is an absolutely wrong way to advance one's own interests."

He added, however, that the regional conflicts and instability should not be solely focused on Iran.

"By the same token, we oppose attempts to view any regional problem through the prism of fighting Iran. This is happening in Syria, Yemen and even the latest developments around the Palestinian issue, including Washington's announcement of its decision to recognize Jerusalem as the Israeli capital, are largely motivated by this anti-Iranian stance," he claimed.

4. Abbas to urge international involvement in peace process at the UN - YNET News

Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas will urge world powers at the UN Security Council on Tuesday to stand up to the US decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital and establish a revamped peace process.

President Donald Trump's decision to move the US embassy to Jerusalem infuriated the Palestinians who declared that the United States could no longer play a role as lead mediator in the Middle East peace process.

The stage will be set for a tense face-off with US Ambassador Nikki Haley, just weeks after she launched a scathing attack on Abbas and accused him of lacking the courage needed for peace.

5. Lieberman: IDF will 'settle the score' with perpetrators of bomb attack near Gaza - Jerusalem Online

Three days after a bomb that detonated near the Gaza border injured four IDF soldiers, Israel's Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman visited three of them at the hospital and vowed to "settle the score" with those responsible.

"I came here right after visiting the Gaza border, where I was briefed on the incident and its outcome," Lieberman told the soldiers. "The IDF will settle the score with those who placed the bomb and those who sent them." Earlier on Tuesday, during his visit near the Gaza border, Lieberman slammed Hamas for sacrificing the lives of its civilians by encouraging them to start violent riots and commit terror attacks.

The Daily Brief

1. Trump to host meeting on school shootings with students, teachers on solutions to violence - Washington Times

President Trump will meet Wednesday with parents, teachers and students affected by mass school shootings "to see what can be done better," White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said. Mr. Trump will host representatives involved with the shooting last week in Parkland, Florida, as well as the shootings in 2012 at the Sandy Hook elementary school in Connecticut and at Columbine High School in Colorado in 1999. Mrs. Sanders said the president will conduct a "listening session" to hear ideas to make schools safer. "Everybody wants a quick and a simple answer; there isn't one," she said, adding that the discussion would touch on "a wide range of issues."

She said accused Florida shooter Nikolas Cruz was a "deranged individual" and that responsibility for the shooting rests with him, not anyone else. Seventeen people were killed in the shooting last Wednesday. "The president is very focused on mental illness," she said. (Read more)

- Father, we pray this meeting will help people feel heard on the issues of school safety and gun control. We ask for our legislators to develop applicable law, only if necessary, and for law enforcement to be more responsive and accountable.

- I will stand on my guard post and station myself on the rampart; and I will keep watch to see what He will speak to me, and how I may reply when I am reproved. (Habakkuk 2:1)

2. What did Obama know? That's new focus of probe into anti-Trump dossier - Washington Times

Rep. Devin Nunes is trying to determine the breadth and reach of the unverified Russia-Trump dossier inside the U.S. government, especially among senior leaders in the Barack Obama administration during the 2016 election. The chairman of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence released a letter on Tuesday that is being sent to as many as two dozen senior leaders in the Trump and Obama administrations. The California Republican is asking 10 questions to gauge who received the dossier information and what they did with it.

The dossier, funded by Hilary Clinton Campaign and the Democratic Party and written by ex-British spy Christopher Steele, was circulated by pay master Fusion GPS during the 2016 campaign. Mr. Steele, relying on Kremlin sources, made a series of felony charges against Mr. Trump and his aides. None to date has been confirmed publicly. The letter's recipients are redacted. But it is assumed they are going to leading Obama officials, such as former CIA Director John Brennan and ex-Director of National Intelligence James Clapper. (Read more)

- Father, we pray Representative Nunes will be successful in uncovering all the facts regarding malfeasance in our government towards the Trump campaign, transition, and administration. We also pray mistreatment of all other private citizens will be uncovered as well.

-Whoever conceals their sins does not prosper, but the one who confesses and renounces them finds mercy. (Proverbs 28:13)

3. Is A Former Feinstein Staffer Running Fusion GPS's Post-Election Steele Dossier Operation? - The Federalist

New evidence suggests that a former top staffer for Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) may be directing the post-election efforts of Fusion GPS, a Democrat-linked political opposition research firm, to vindicate a series of memos alleging illegal collusion between the Donald Trump campaign and Russian officials. Congressional documents and recently leaked texts between Sen. Mark Warner (D-Va.) and a registered foreign agent for a Russian aluminum oligarch indicate that Daniel J. Jones is intimately involved with ongoing efforts to retroactively validate a series of salacious and unverified memos produced by Christopher Steele, a former British intelligence agent, and Fusion GPS. The dossier, which declassified documents show was used as a basis for securing secret wiretaps on Trump campaign affiliates, was reportedly jointly funded by the Democratic National Committee and Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign.

Jones, a former Feinstein staffer who wrote a controversial top-secret report on alleged torture by the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), currently runs the Penn Quarter Group, which bills itself as a "research and investigative advisory" and is inconspicuously named after the downtown Washington DC neighborhood where its office is located. Jones was intensively spied on by the CIA during his multi-year congressional investigation of the agency's interrogation practices, providing an ironic prelude to U.S. intelligence agencies' use of an unverified dossier produced by Jones's post-election compatriots as a pretext to spy on their political opponents in 2016. Jones did not respond to requests by The Federalist to describe the extent of his work with Fusion GPS or Steele. Representatives of Fusion GPS also refused to respond to requests for information on the firm's work with Jones and Penn Quarter Group. (Read more)

- Father, we pray You would make clear the role Daniel J. Jones's had in promoting the Steele dossier for Fusion GPS. We also pray You would expose whether or not Senator Feinstein has helped them.

- My eyes are on all their ways; they are not hidden from me, nor is their sin concealed from my eyes. (Jeremiah 16:17)

4. Mueller threatening new charges against Paul Manafort in bid to deplete 'resources,' attorney says - Washington Times

Special counsel Robert Mueller is threatening to file more criminal charges in new jurisdictions against Paul Manafort, his attorney said in a court filing that suggests prosecutors are deliberately trying to deplete his client's "resources." The Manafort investigation is headed by career prosecutor Andrew Weissmann, who is known for rough investigative tactics to squeeze targets and gain guilty pleas. Mr. Weissmann said in a court filing that Mr. Manafort has expressed doubts that he can "maintain the payments on all his mortgages." His Trump Tower condominium is at risk of foreclosure, he said.

Mr. Manafort's attorney, Kevin M. Downing, filed his argument Feb. 16 in U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia to support his lawsuit against the Justice Department. He is asking District Court Judge Amy Berman Jackson to end the special counsel's investigation of Mr. Manafort. The pending money-laundering indictment in Washington against Mr. Manafort, President Trump's former campaign manager, goes back to transactions in 2005 that ended by 2014. The time span is many months before the Republican operative joined the campaign in March 2016. His filing adds: "The government seeks to relegate Mr. Manafort to a game of criminal-procedure whack-a-mole that wastes judicial resources; that cannot offer complete (or even adequate) relief; and that leaves him powerless in any effort to match the government's resources." (Read more)

- Father, we pray anyone who is being wrongfully prosecuted by the Mueller investigation to be exonerated and fully restored.

- Acquitting the guilty and condemning the innocent- both are detestable to the Lord. (Proverbs 17:15)

5. Religious parents lose custody of transgender teen for refusing hormone treatment - Washington Times

A Hamilton County, Ohio, judge took a transgender teen away from her parents on Friday because they refused to allow the 17-year-old to undergo hormone treatments as part of a female-to-male transition. Judge Sylvia Sieve Hendon awarded custody of the teenager to her grandparents, who will be allowed to make medical decisions for the minor and legally change her name. The parents objected to the transition procedures because of their religious beliefs and refused to call their daughter by her chosen, male name, court records show.

Family services then sought to terminate the temporary custody arrangement and grant full legal custody to the grandparents. Both grandparents filed petitions for full legal custody in December. The parents initially sought treatment for their daughter's anxiety and depression at the children's hospital, where they were "legitimately surprised and confused" by the diagnosis of gender dysphoria, according to Friday's decision. She had lived as a gender-confirming girl until 2016. (Read more)

- Father, we lift up this sexually confused teen and pray she will come to know and accept the beautiful woman You have created her to be. We are also alarmed that the government was able to remove parental rights when they disagreed with the medical diagnosis of gender dysphoria. We pray You would reverse this awful precedent.

-So God created human beings in his own image. In the image of God he created them; male and female he created them. (Genesis 1:27)

6. Who Are the Rich, White Men Institutionalizing Transgender Ideology? - The Federalist

Transgenderism is framed as both a medical problem, for the gender dysphoria of children who need puberty blockers and are being groomed for a lifetime of medicalization, and as a brave and original lifestyle choice for adults. Martine Rothblatt suggests we are all transhuman, that changing our bodies by removing healthy tissue and organs and ingesting cross-sex hormones over the course of a lifetime can be likened to wearing make-up, dying our hair, or getting a tattoo. If we are all transhuman, expressing that could be a never-ending saga of body-related consumerism.

The massive medical and technological infrastructure expansion for a tiny (but growing) fraction of the population with gender dysphoria, along with the money being funneled to this project by those heavily invested in the medical and technology industries, seems to make sense only in the context of expanding markets for changing the human body. Trans activists are already clamoring for a change from "gender dysphoria" to "gender incongruence" in the next revision to the international register of mental diagnosis codes, the ICD-11. The push is on for insurance-paid hormones and surgeries for anyone who believes his or her body is in any way "incongruent" with his or her "gender identity." This ideology is being promoted as a civil rights issue by wealthy, white, men with enormous influence who stand to personally benefit from their political activities. (Read more)

- Father, we pray this profit-motive to take advantage of mentally ill people will become widely known and understood.

- If anyone causes one of these little ones-those who believe in me-to stumble, it would be better for them to have a large millstone hung around their neck and to be drowned in the depths of the sea. (Matthew 18:6)

7. Defense Secretary Jim Mattis' new policy on transgender troops expected by Wednesday - USA Today

The Pentagon is likely to announce its new policy on transgender troops this week after six months of legal battles that started with President Trump's tweets calling for a ban on their service. Several federal court rulings prevented the Pentagon from implementing the ban, including a probation on accepting new recruits.

Defense Secretary Jim Mattis announced in September that a panel of experts would develop a new policy on transgender service members by Feb. 21. The new policy will replace rules adopted during the Obama administration that allowed transgender troops to serve openly for the first time. Those rules set up procedures that gave transgender troops access to medical treatment and policies for recruiters to accept applications from transgender volunteers for military service.

In September, Mattis issued interim guidance that prevented transgender troops from being booted from service, allowed for their medical treatment and established the panel to develop the policy. After losing several court challenges, the Pentagon allowed recruiting to begin Jan. 1. USA TODAY reported that dozens of transgender applicants filled out paperwork with recruiters, including at least eight with the Air Force. Mattis has indicated several times since taking charge of the Pentagon that readiness to fight is his top priority. The new policy on transgender troops must be "consistent with military effectiveness and lethality," he wrote in a memo in September. (Read more)

- Father, we pray our military will reject pressure to accept and medically assist transsexual individuals.

- They were brave warriors, ready for battle and able to handle the shield and spear. Their faces were the faces of lions, and they were as swift as gazelles in the mountains. (1 Chronicles 12:8b)

8. GOP Rep Introduces Legislation to Revoke Citizenship From MS-13 Gang Members - FreeBeacon

Rep. Lee Zeldin (R., N.Y.) on Tuesday introduced legislation to revoke the citizenship of naturalized immigrants who are involved in gang-related crimes. The Protecting Our Communities from Gang Violence Act would allow the U.S. government to revoke the citizenship of individuals who came to the country as immigrants and got involved in gang activity either prior to or within 10 years of becoming a naturalized citizen. The act seems to be the direct result of an increase in the numbers of crimes being committed by MS-13 gang members in Zeldin's congressional district and the state of New York as a whole.

"From the vicious machete attack of four young men in Central Islip, to the childhood best friends brutally murdered by MS-13 in Brentwood, our community has witnessed the indiscriminate brutality of gang violence firsthand," Zeldin said in a statement. "Every level of government has a role to play in combating the rise of MS-13 and other gangs, and we must crack down on the aspects of our nation's broken immigration system and other policies that have allowed MS-13 and other gangs to take hold in our communities and stay there." (Read more)

- Father, we pray for the people caught up in the MS-13 gang to be delivered from evil. We ask for people who can truly reach them with the Gospel and for the salvation of their souls.

- For I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God that brings salvation to everyone who believes: first to the Jew, then to the Gentile. (Romans 1:16)

9. Reps Question DHS's Decision to Deny Asylum to 100 Iranian Christians, Other Religious Minorities - FreeBeacon

Reps. Randy Hultgren (R., Ill.) and James McGovern (D., Mass.) want answers from the Trump administration about the reasons behind a Department of Homeland Security decision to deny refugee status in the United States for dozens of Iranian Christians and other Iranian religious minorities. The congressman, co-chairs of the Tom Lantos Human Rights Commission, on Tuesday said they are disappointed that DHS has denied asylum to a large percentage of a group of roughly 100 Iranians fleeing religious persecution in Iran.

Roughly 76 to 80 members of the group, which is largely Christian but also includes Zoroastrians, Andeans, and at least one Jewish family, reportedly received notice of the DHS denial on Monday, while the rest remain "under investigation" and have yet to receive a clear answer. The group, which applied for refugee status under a U.S. law reserved for persecuted minorities from Iran, Ukraine, and former Soviet countries known as the Lautenberg amendment, has been waiting in limbo in Vienna for more than a year while the U.S. government evaluates their cases. (Read more)

- Father, we pray these Iranian Christians will receive favor from our immigration system.

- My times are in Your hand; Deliver me from the hand of my enemies and from those who persecute me. (Psalm 31:15)

10. Nikki Haley responds to Palestinian officials: 'I will not shut up' - Washington Examiner

U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley issued a sharp response to Palestinians leaders and its top negotiator Tuesday, saying she "will not shut up" after the official made derogatory comments about Haley last month. Haley addressed the U.N. Security Council during a speech Tuesday, during which she responded to an earlier speech from Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas, as well as comments made last month by Saeb Erekat, a Palestinian negotiator. Erekat said Haley "needs to shut up and realize the Palestinian leadership is not the problem."

"We welcome you as the leader of the Palestinian people here today," Haley said of Abbas. "But I will decline the advice I was recently given by your top negotiator, Saeb Erekat. I will not shut up. Rather, I will respectfully speak some hard truths. The Palestinian leadership has a choice to make between two different paths. There is the path of absolutist demands, hateful rhetoric, and incitement to violence. That path has led, and will continue to lead, to nothing but hardship for the Palestinian people." Haley then reminded the Palestinians of the "path of negotiation and compromise," which she said has proved to be successful for Egypt and Jordan. (Read more)

- Father, we thank You for Ambassador Haley's brave stand for truth within the United Nations. Give her a sense of Your Presence and leading as she represents the United States each day.

- These are the things you must do: Speak truth to one another; make true and sound decisions within your gates. (Zechariah 8:16)

Russian and DNC election disruption

The Mueller investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election is pointing more and more to the socialists in the news media, the Democratic National Committee, the previous "president's" White House, and the Clinton campaign than it is toward President Donald Trump. The recent indictments of Russians by the Mueller Special Counsel reveal a lot of chicanery going on but really no influence over the election. These were indictments based on these Russians running various disinformation campaigns as non-registered foreign agents, which is against the law. If you are a non-citizen doing work of a political nature, you have to register as a foreign agent. They didn't. But this gets far worse.

There is just plain old rough and tumble politics taking place during campaigns. Dirt is drudged up on opponents. Charges are made. Facts are skewed. Liars lie. That's the way game is played. But what the Clintons, the DNC, the ex "president" did with a willful socialist-bent media appears no less than a high crime for which many should go to jail. In a nutshell it appears that the Clinton campaign and the DNC paid a non-registered foreign agent to assemble a false dossier on Donald Trump involving Russian businessmen and prostitutes. To give the dossier more "punch" the ex "president" pushed the use of the secret FISA Court to share the information with the FBI, which was then leaked to the media.
Meantime, Clinton had her own Russian scandal brewing--Classified emails over an unsecured server, a uranium deal that brought in millions to the Clinton Foundation in a pay for influence scheme with the Russians, and her ex-president husband receiving hundreds of thousands from the Russians for a speech. All this was essentially covered up by the White House and the Justice Department under the control of the ex "president," who was informed of the progress as it took place. Now, after the Mueller indictments are made public, more information has surfaced that the Russians were sowing confusion by holding pro- and anti-Clinton/Trump rallies and asserting nonsense to an all too willing news media.
The Media Research Center's analysis of the Mueller indictments indicates that CNN and MSNBC extensively covered a Russian-staged anti-Trump rally on November 12, 2016, where paid protesters insinuated that Trump's election meant that Blacks would be shot in the streets. The networks repeated and discussed among their "experts" these accusations as if they were true. All this was an attempt to undermine the incoming presidency. Meanwhile, the Clintons, the DNC and the White House were working together against a Trump presidency even taking office. The media helped make their case. Proverbs 26:26 says, "[He] Whose hatred is covered by deceit, his wickedness shall be shown before the whole congregation." In this case, the DNC, Clintons, and the former "president" should all be indicted for their conspiracy.

Have a Blessed and Powerful Day!

"Then shall we know, if we follow on to know the Lord." (Hosea 6:3)


Down in the valley with my Savior I would go,
Where the flowers are blooming and the sweet waters flow;
Everywhere He leads me I would follow, follow on,
Walking in His footsteps till the crown be won.


Follow! follow! I would follow Jesus!
Anywhere, everywhere, I would follow on!
Follow! follow! I would follow Jesus!
Everywhere He leads me I would follow on!

Down in the valley with my Savior I would go,
Where the storms are sweeping and the dark waters flow;
With His hand to lead me I will never, never fear,
Danger cannot fright me if my Lord is near.


Down in the valley, or upon the mountain steep,
Close beside my Savior would my soul ever keep;
He will lead me safely in the path that He has trod,
Up to where they gather on the hills of God.

About the Hymn:

"I wrote this hymn in 1878," the Rev. W. O. Cush­ing tells me. "Long­ing to give up all for Christ who had giv­en his life for me, I want­ed to be will­ing to lay ev­er­ything at his feet, with no wish but to do his will, to live hence­forth on­ly for his glo­ry. Out of this feel­ing came the hymn, 'Fol­low On.' It was writ­ten with the pray­er and the hope that some heart might by it be led to give up all for Christ. Much of the pow­er and use­ful­ness of the hymn, how­ev­er, are due to Mr. Low­ry, who put it in­to song."

Earthquake shakes southern Mexico for second time in three days

A magnitude 5.9 earthquake struck southern Mexico early on Monday, sending frightened residents into the streets as seismic alarms echoed across the capital, although there were no immediate reports of damage.

The quake hit 32 km (20 miles) east of Santa Catarina Mechoacan in the state of Oaxaca at a depth of 40 km at 12.57am (6.57am GMT), the US Geological Survey said, revising its strength down slightly from an initial 6.1 magnitude.

The tremor was strong enough to trigger earthquake alarms in Mexico City, more than 200 miles (320 km) away, but was shorter and less intense than one of Friday in the same area that damaged about 1,000 houses.

The head of Mexico's civil protection agency, Luis Felipe Puente, said state emergency procedures had been activated in the affected states.

"So far, no damage has been reported," he said on Twitter.

Infrastructure, including installations of state oil company Pemex, were intact, he said. (Read more)

Israel Vows to Clear 4,000 Landmines from Sacred Site of Jesus' Baptism on the Jordan River

[] An ancient Christian area widely thought to be the site of Jesus' baptism is to be cleared of some 4,000 landmines by Israeli military forces. Christians believe that Qasr al-Yahud, located about 10 kilometers east of Jericho, is the very spot on the Jordan River where Jesus was baptized.

The Baptism of Jesus is recorded in the Gospel of Matthew:

13 Then Jesus came from Galilee to the Jordan to John, to be baptized by him. 14 John would have prevented him, saying, "I need to be baptized by You, and do You come to me?" 15 But Jesus answered him, "Let it be so now, for thus it is fitting for us to fulfill all righteousness." Then he consented. 16 And when Jesus was baptized, immediately He went up from the water, and behold, the heavens were opened to Him,[a] and You saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and coming to rest on Him;17 and behold, a voice from Heaven said, "This is My beloved Son,[b] with whom I am well pleased."

The trouble is, there are an estimated 4,000 landmines in the area where this historic event took place. The surrounding region is home to seven churches, along with chapels and monasteries, each belonging to various different Christian denominations. Qasr al-Yahud had been a popular pilgrimage location until 1968, when Israel blocked access and incorporated it in the closed military zone along the border with Jordan.

Due to its popularity as a tourist location for Christians, in 2011, COGAT-the Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories-and the National Parks Authority opened a small access road that leads to the baptismal site on the banks of the Jordan River.
