Focus on Israel

1. IDF Preparing for Friday's 'Million Men March' on Gaza Strip Border Fence - Jewish Press

On Friday, Hamas is planning a day of rage in the Gaza Strip, during which the security establishment fears thousands of Arab will be marching towards the border fence. The IDF says it has many means at its disposal - intelligence and operational - to disrupt and thwart the demonstrators and to prevent local eruptions that could lead to a widespread security escalation.

The IDF's main concern is that terrorist operatives can hide under the cover of non-violent demonstrations, and shoot live fire at the Israeli side, using anything from an assault rifle to anti-tank missiles and even mortar shells. In such a case, the IDF is well aware of the damage images of Arab casualties can cause the Jewish State. Casualties would also lead to a further radicalization of the Arab civilian population.

The military has mapped the access routes, including the less conventional ones, which the demonstrators are expected to use to get near the fence. Monitoring these venues closely, IDF forces will be sent according to developments there, guided by unmanned aerial vehicles, observation planes, ground observation positions and dedicated radar. These will help field forces shift their deployment in real-time to events on the other side of the fence.

2. Police likely to question Netanyahu for suspected obstruction of justice in Bezeq case - Jerusalem Online

The Israel Police believe Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu authorized his former media advisor to request the deletion of incriminating text messages and are expected to question him for suspected obstruction of justice, Israel News Company reported on Monday. According to the allegations, Nir Hefetz, Netanyahu's former aide who recently became a state witness against him, urged Bezeq chief shareholder Shaul Elovitch to delete text messages sent to his phone by Sara Netanyahu, the prime minister's wife, in which she allegedly instructed him to change stories published on the popular Walla news site in order to make them more favorable toward her husband.

Hefetz reportedly sent a message to Elovitch urging him to "delete all the messages from Sara and destroy the phone." He told the police investigators that he had destroyed his own phone prior to becoming a state witness, but managed to save copies of some text messages and audio files that proved the contact between the two parties.

3. Merkel: 'Ending Iran nuclear deal will lead to war' - Israel National News

The Middle East will be plunged into a devastating new war if the Trump administration withdraws the United States from the 2015 Iran nuclear deal, German Chancellor Angela Merkel reportedly warned Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu on Tuesday.

The Israeli premier spoke with Merkel on Tuesday and congratulated her on the formation of a new governing coalition.

During the phone call, Merkel and Netanyahu also discussed the future of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), better known as the Iran nuclear agreement.

While President Donald Trump has indicated his willingness to withdraw from the agreement if America's European allies are unwilling or unable to alter key components of the deal - a position strongly supported by the Israeli leader - Merkel warned Netanyahu that the collapse of the JCPOA would likely lead to a major regional conflict, Channel 10 reported Tuesday night.

4. Negev is 'energy future' of Israel, business magnate Elon Musk tells Netanyahu - World Israel News

Speaking at the 8th Negev Conference in DimonaTuesday, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said he met earlier with Elon Musk, founder and CEO of electrical and autonomic car company Tesla Inc. and aerospace company SpaceX, who encouraged development of the Negev.

"This morning, before coming here, I met with Elon Musk, a man of vision, perhaps the greatest technological visionary of our time. He is a genius," Netanyahu told the crowd.

Musk, 46, praised Israel as a 'technological power' and said the Negev could provide the country with all its energy needs, Netanyahu said.

5. PA may consider declaring Gaza 'rebel district,' cutting enclave off - Times of Israel

The Palestinian Authority may study the possibility of declaring the Gaza Strip a rogue area, solidifying the split between the West Bank and Gaza Strip.

A senior Fatah official told The Times of Israel on Tuesday that he could not rule out the possibility of declaring the Gaza Strip as a "rebel district" if the crisis between Hamas and Fatah is not resolved in the near future.

In a speech before Palestinian leaders on Monday evening, Abbas threatened to take "national, legal, and financial measures" against Hamas. However, Abbas did not provide further details about his planned sanctions.

6. Jerusalem stabbing attack victim identified as Adiel Kolman, father of four - Times of Israel

The Israeli man stabbed to death in a terror attack in Jerusalem's Old City on Sunday was identified as 32-year-old Adiel Kolman.

Kolman, a father of four, was from the central West Bank settlement of Kochav Hashachar. . . Kolman, who was critically injured in the afternoon terror attack, died of his wounds in the hospital hours later.

Innitial reports identified Kolman as a security guard in the Old City. However, friends later said he had worked in the archaeological digs at the City of David for the last five years.

(Read more)
- Father God, we lift up the family of Adiel Kolman, as they grieve the loss of their son, husband and father. We ask that You comfort his family, and draw each one unto You to find solace in this difficult time. We ask in Your name, amen.

- "Comfort ye, comfort ye, My people." (Isaiah 40:1)

The Daily Brief

1. BREAKING! Supreme Court skeptical of crisis pregnancy center law - OneNewsNow

The Supreme Court seems likely to strike down a California law that mainly regulates pro-life crisis pregnancy centers. Both conservative and liberal justices voiced skepticism Tuesday about the law that requires the centers to tell clients about the availability of contraception, abortion and pre-natal care, at little or no cost. Centers that are unlicensed also must post a sign that says so. The centers say they are being singled out and forced to deliver a message with which they disagree. California says the law is needed to let poor women know all their options.

At different points in the arguments, liberal Justices Elena Kagan and Sonia Sotomayor said they were troubled by aspects of the California law. Kagan said it seemed that the state had "gerrymandered" the law, a term usually used in the context of redistricting, to target the pro-life centers. Sotomayor said there was at least one instance dealing with unlicensed centers that seemed "burdensome and wrong." California's law was challenged by the National Institute of Family and Life Advocates, an organization with ties to 1,500 pregnancy centers nationwide and 140 in California. The justices suggested they could give a different reception to a law that required all pregnancy-related facilities to post the services they provide and those they don't. (Read more)

- Father, we lift up the pregnancy resource centers around the nation and pray they will have the resources needed to inspire every woman to choose life. We ask for favor as the Supreme Court rules in their case. We thank You for the initial good reports that have come out of this hearing today, and we set ourselves in place to remain as "watchmen on the wall" until the final verdict has been rendered in this decision later this year. Amen.

- "I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses. Now choose life, so that you and your children may live and that you may love the Lord your God, listen to his voice, and hold fast to him." (Deuteronomy 30:19b-20a)

2. Surprise! 'Good guy with a gun' stops school shooting - WND

A student gunman at Great Mills High School in Southern Maryland tore through the campus at 8 a.m. Tuesday, shooting and injuring at least two students. But an armed school resource officer, Blaine Gaskill, wasn't about to stand down or wait for backup. He was determined to save innocent young lives. So Gaskill wasted no time in pursuing attacker Austin Wyatt Rollins, who was armed with a Glock handgun. Gaskill fired a round at the gunman and quickly neutralized the threat. Nobody was killed, except for Rollins. Two injured students - a 14-year-old boy and 16-year-old girl - are receiving treatment at local hospitals. The boy is in stable condition at MedStar St. Mary Hospital. The girl is critical at the University of Maryland Prince George's Hospital Center. Gaskill was not injured.

It's a stark contrast to the Valentine's Day shooting five weeks ago at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, where 17 people were killed. In that case, the school resource officer waited outside the school as the gunman massacred students inside. Sheriff Tim Cameron said Gaskill fired "at least a round at the shooter, and I believe the shooter also fired a round." He added: "This is what we train for. This is what we prepare for and this is what we pray we never have to do. And on this day we realized our worst nightmare that our greatest asset - our children - were attacked in a bastion of safety and security, one of our schools." (Read more)

- Father, we thank You that this security guard did his job' today, with his gun, to protect the lives of these teenagers. - Father, we continue to lift up our children to You. We pray this demonic plan to snuff out their lives will be the very thing You use to bring repentance and salvation to this generation.

- "Turn away from evil and do good. Search for peace, and work to maintain it." (Psalm 34:14)

3. Former assistant FBI director: High-ranking people throughout the government had a plot to protect Hillary Clinton from being indicted - Washington Examiner

Former assistant FBI director James Kallstrom suggested Sunday morning that the constant shifting of high-ranking government officials over the last year is related to an internal plot to help Hillary Clinton during the 2016 presidential election.

"I think we have ample facts revealed to us during this last year and a half that high-ranking people throughout government, not just the FBI, high-ranking people had a plot to not have Hillary Clinton, you know, indicted," Kallstrom said on Fox News' "Sunday Morning Futures With Maria Bartiromo."

Kallstrom, who worked at the FBI for 27 years, was responding to Bartiromo's question about whether he thought that someone in the FBI was directing officials to protect Clinton.

Kallstrom also said officials had a scheme to blame Trump for the Russian interference during the 2016 election. "They had a backup plan to basically frame Donald Trump and that's what's been going," Kallstrom said. (Read more)

- Father, we thank You that, day by day and week by week, more evidence is coming to light to bring TRUTH where deception used to rule. We ask that all those, in the days ahead, who are found guilty of perpetrating these false accusations against President Trump be tried and brought to justice accordingly. In Your Name, amen.

- "Oh, how great is Your goodness,
Which You have laid up for those who fear You,
Which You have prepared for those who trust in You
In the presence of the sons of men!
You shall hide them in the secret place of Your presence
From the plots of man;
You shall keep them secretly in a pavilion
From the strife of tongues."
(Psalm 31:19,20)

4. Trump campaign's use of Facebook data routine, first employed by Obama - Washington Times

The near-hysterical reaction to the Trump campaign's reported use of personal Facebook data in 2016 ignores a fact of life about social media: businesses, platforms and political campaigns have been collecting users' personal preferences for years through a variety of online tools to reach their target audiences. This alleged data "breach" from Facebook accounts is not identity theft, in which hackers try to steal your credit card information, Social Security number or bank account. The accusation leveled against the voter-profiling research firm Cambridge Analytica involves the exploitation of Facebook users' personal choices and "likes" - expressed online voluntarily for their friends to see - that let researchers and analysts make educated guesses about a person's political leanings and susceptibility to advertising.

"This sounds scary to a lot of people because the name 'Trump' is attached to it," Republican digital strategist Patrick Ruffini said. "In reality, this was being done first by the Obama campaign in 2012 and subsequently by other Republican campaigns. This is no different than what Obama did, and no different than what other campaigns and companies have done." Facebook said Monday that it had hired a firm to conduct a comprehensive audit of Cambridge Analytica, which was hired by the Trump campaign, and the whistleblower, Christopher Wylie, who accused Cambridge of misusing the data. Facebook officials said Mr. Wylie has declined to submit to an audit. "We are moving aggressively to determine the accuracy of these claims," Facebook said in a statement. "We remain committed to vigorously enforcing our policies to protect people's information." (Read more)

- Father, we pray You would put this story into proper context and end the constant criticism of every word and action of the Trump campaign and administration.

- Many have become my enemies without cause; those who hate me without reason are numerous. Those who repay my good with evil lodge accusations against me, though I seek only to do what is good. Lord, do not forsake me; do not be far from me, my God. Come quickly to help me, my Lord and my Savior. (Psalm 38:19-22)

5. Trump's Nominee for Sec. of State Mike Pompeo: 5 Quotes on Jesus, the Rapture, War on Radical Islam - Christian Post

CIA Director Mike Pompeo, nominated by President Donald Trump to succeed fired Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, is making waves for a number of speeches he's made in the past, exalting Jesus Christ and warning about radical Islam. Pompeo, an evangelical Christian who attends Eastminster Presbyterian Church in Wichita, Kansas, where he served as a deacon and taught Sunday school classes, also formally served as a member of the U.S. House of Representatives for Kansas' 4th congressional district. He has spoken at various church conferences and events throughout his career, calling Jesus the "only solution" for the world, commenting on the Rapture, and urging the United States to recognize the obstacles it faces in the war against radical Islam.

Pompeo has criticized former President Barack Obama on a number of occasions for not doing enough to fight Islamic terrorism around the world, especially in light of the ongoing genocide against Christians. "We must instead place this threat - with its massive persecution of Christians and murderous expansionist march against the West - on par with those who have challenged the world order before, whether in the name of Communism, Fascism or, now, Islamism," declared Pompeo, a former Army cavalry officer. He further warned that America cannot "downplay or obscure" the threat of radical Islam against the United States and against believers, calling it "the threat of our generation." (Read more)

- Father, we pray Mike Pompeo will receive quick confirmation by the Senate. We are truly grateful for his clear-eyed perception of the threat from radical Islam and his steadfast faith in You.

- "I will restore your leaders as in days of old, your rulers as at the beginning. Afterward you will be called the City of Righteousness, the Faithful City." (Isaiah 1:26)

6. White House, Dems restart negotiations over DACA, funding border wall - Fox News

The White House and congressional Democrats traded proposals over the weekend about how to fix an Obama-era program protecting hundreds of thousands of immigrants brought to the U.S. illegally as children from deportation, Fox News has learned. A source familiar with the talks said discussions broke down after Democrats rejected a bid by the Trump administration to extend protections for those enrolled in the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program until the fall of 2020. In exchange, the White House would receive $25 billion in funding for President Trump's long-sought wall along the U.S.-Mexico border. The Democrats countered with an offer to provide funding for the wall in exchange for a pathway to citizenship for all 1.8 million DACA-eligible immigrants -- as opposed to the estimated 800,000 who are enrolled in the program. At that point, the source told Fox News the talks broke down.

The immigration talks were part of larger negotiations on a $1.3 trillion catchall spending bill, which would have to pass Congress by midnight Friday to avert another government shutdown. Trump ended the DACA program in September of last year, but a court decision has essentially left it in place, for now. The president also traveled to California last week to inspect prototypes for the border wall, but what's pending now is $1.6 billion for earlier designs involving sections in Texas that double as levees and 14 miles of replacement fencing in San Diego. It appears Democrats may be willing to accept wall funding, but they are battling hard against Trump's demands for big increases for immigration agents and detention beds they fear would enable wide-scale roundups of immigrants illegally living in the U.S. (Read more)

- Father God, we pray the citizens of our nation will press their representatives to pass a long-term immigration solution for our nation.

- "I have heard all about you, Lord. I am filled with awe by your amazing works. In this time of our deep need, help us again as you did in years gone by." (Hab. 3:2a)

7. Republicans punt on conservative spending demands in bid to woo Democrats - Washington Times

Congressional Republicans were rushing to put finishing touches on a $1.3 trillion bill Monday to fund the government for the rest of fiscal year 2018, retreating on most conservative demands in order to earn help from Democrats in passing the bill by a shutdown deadline Friday. President Trump was likely to get $1.6 billion in border security funding, which could cover one year's worth of construction on the first sections of his border wall. But illegal immigrant "Dreamers" weren't likely to get any new protections, lawmakers said as they emerged from an evening briefing. Key Obamacare money was also likely to be dropped from the bill, while decisions about federal funding for a tunnel into New York City and restrictions on taxpayer money being used to fund abortions were still being hashed out, lawmakers said.

GOP leaders were pushing for a vote Wednesday on legislation that was likely to stretch into the thousands of pages, giving members little time to review what they'll be approving. The Senate would also have to approve the deal, as Congress races a Friday shutdown deadline. Facing a potential revolt from conservatives, GOP leaders urged them to see the bill as a major win for the Pentagon, with an $80 billion surge in defense spending, to $700 billion this year. The leaders said shortfalls during the last administration had created a readiness crisis in the military, saying troops' lives are being lost because of maintenance and training problems. The bill also includes $63 billion in domestic spending increases, pushing that figure to about $600 billion this year. Combined, the defense and domestic increases swamp the spending caps set by Republicans and President Obama in the 2011 debt deal. (Read more)

- Father, this appears to be another rushed, ill-conceived, 1,000+ page bill that no one plans to read before voting upon. We pray for a return to "regular order" where bills are debated and the process is transparent to the citizens.

- "Nothing in all creation is hidden from God. Everything is naked and exposed before his eyes, and he is the one to whom we are accountable." (Hebrews 4:13)

C 8. Saudi Crown Prince at White House to Meet with Trump -

President Trump welcomed Saudi Arabia's crown prince, Mohammed bin Salman, to the White House on Tuesday, reaffirming his endorsement of an ambitious young monarch bent on reforming his country and realigning the broader Middle East.

The last time Mr. Trump played host to Prince Mohammed at the White House, a year ago, he was jockeying for position in the court of his father, King Salman. This time, with Mr. Trump's enthusiastic support, Prince Mohammed arrives after having rapidly consolidated his position as Saudi Arabia's heir apparent and a disruptive figure in the region.

The two leaders are expected to take up an array of thorny issues: Mr. Trump's forthcoming decision on whether to rip up the Iran nuclear deal; his nearly completed Middle East peace plan; Saudi Arabia's bitter dispute with its neighbor, Qatar; and the brutal civil war in Yemen, which has led lawmakers to propose a cutoff in American support for a Saudi-led bombing campaign that has killed thousands. (Read more)

- Lord God, we thank You for this new chapter in our relations with Saudi Arabia. We ask that all negotiations we now enter into would be blessed by Your Hand, and would, in time, rebound too to the safety and the protection of the nation of Israel. We ask in Your name, amen.

- "Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours." (Mark 11:24)

9. Saudi Arabia: Iran deal is flawed - ARUTZ SHEVA

"Our view of the nuclear deal is that it's a flawed agreement," Saudi Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir told reporters in Washington, according to the Reuters news agency. Jubeir called out Iran for what Riyadh has long slammed as Tehran's destabilizing behavior in the region, saying "We've called for tougher policies towards Iran for years. We're looking at ways in which we can push back against Iran's nefarious activities in the region," he added, lambasting Tehran's support for the Houthi militia in Yemen and support for Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad in Syria.

Shiite Iran and Sunni Saudi Arabia have a historic rivalry in the Middle East. Saudi Arabia has repeatedly called on Iran to stop its "meddling" in the affairs of the kingdom's neighbors. Iran has fired back, accusing Saudi Arabia of trying to "drag the entire region into confrontation". The Saudi Crown Prince is scheduled to meet Trump on Tuesday at the White House. He will also see members of the U.S. Congress, some of whom have been critical of the Saudi campaign in Yemen, particularly the humanitarian situation and civilian casualties. (Read more)

- Father, we pray tomorrow's reception of Mohammed bin Salman and his delegation will be a turning point for the moderation of Islamic countries. We ask You to give President Trump and MbS wisdom on the best ways to isolate Iran's government and bring stability to the Middle East.

- "All nations will come to your light; mighty kings will come to see your radiance." (Isaiah 60:3)

10. European powers propose new Iran sanctions to meet Trump ultimatum - Israel Hayom

Britain, France and Germany are engaged in "intensive talks" with U.S. to "achieve a clear and lasting reaffirmation of U.S. support" for the nuclear deal. The United Kingdom, France and Germany have proposed fresh sanctions on Iran over its ballistic missiles and its role in Syria's war in a bid to persuade Washington to preserve the 2015 nuclear deal with Iran, according to a confidential document. The proposal was sent to European Union capitals on Friday to sound out support for such sanctions, as they would need the support of all 28 EU member governments. The proposal is part of an EU strategy to save the accord by showing U.S. President Donald Trump that there are ways to counter Iranian power abroad other than abandoning the deal, which was signed by the U.S. under President Barack Obama and five world powers with the aim of curbing Iran's ability to develop nuclear weapons. European Union foreign ministers will discuss the proposal at a closed-door meeting in Brussels on Monday, diplomats said.

Analysts say the nuclear agreement, touted as a breakthrough reducing the risk of a devastating wider war in the Middle East, could collapse if Washington pulls out. Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif struck a defiant note on Friday. "If the United States makes the mistake of pulling out of the JCPOA [the nuclear deal], it will definitely be a painful mistake for the Americans," Iranian state television quoted Zarif as saying. Iran's Deputy Foreign Minister Abbas Araghchi warned Friday that any new European sanctions against Iran will have a direct effect on the nuclear deal. "In case some European countries are following steps to put non-nuclear sanctions against Iran in order to please the American president, they will be making a big mistake and they will see the direct result of that on the nuclear deal," Araghchi said. (Read more)

- Father, You hear the insults from this rogue nation, Iran. Deliver their people and grant their nation renewal and salvation, for the glory of Your Name.

- "You can ask for anything in my name, and I will do it, so that the Son can bring glory to the Father." (John 14:13)

Reflections in the mirror of life

The Daily Jot 3.20.18
Reflections in the mirror of life Is our home, our community, our state, our nation a reflection of ourselves? It makes sense that in a nation where we have a choice of how we are governed, that the political, social and moral elements of society reflect the people. We read the headlines and are appalled. We watch television programs and we are repulsed. We see the condition of those around us and it often looks like the bar room scene in Star Wars. It is foreign to how many of us were raised. It is very different than most of our values. We try to make sense of it, but the problem is that we just cannot relate. There is a disconnect. Many just throw in the towel and say all is lost. Can we afford to do that? What would the Lord have us do?

At the time of Christ, the Romans ruled over the Jews and Gentiles alike. There was no choice of government. Nevertheless, disciples of Christ were encouraged to overcome evil with good. Jesus told the masses gathered at the Sermon on the Mount, "You are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? It is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under the foot of men. You are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid. Neither do men light a candle and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it gives light unto all that are in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven (Matthew 5:13-16)."

The Apostle Paul says in Romans 12:1, "I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. And be not conformed to this world: but be you transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God." He goes on to say that we each have different gifts-some teach, some exhort, some rule-and we are to exercise our gifts with simplicity, diligence, mercy and cheerfulness. These are focused on showing Christ, glorifying the Father in heaven, through our acts, by using our gifts to "Abhor that which is evil; cleave to that which is good."

Ephesians 2:8-10 tells us, "For by grace are you saved thought faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast. For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God has before ordained that we should walk in them." So when we see the darkness around us, is it a reflection of our faith, of our work? In some ways it may be, especially considering how the "church" has disengaged and withdrawn into its four walls with all sorts of crazy ideas about not engaging with government, the world, etc. It is not your fault that the world is dark and dying-the word promises that it's going to get worse before the Lord returns. But we as disciples of Christ are to be salt and light to a dark and dying world. Does our reflection in that mirror of life look like Christ or the world?

​​​​​Have a Blessed and Powerful Day!
