Focus on Israel

1. Report: Leading BDS Organization Tied to Palestinian Terrorist Groups - FreeBeacon

An American umbrella group of the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions movement (BDS) against Israel facilitates tax-exempt donations to a Palestinian coalition that includes numerous U.S.-designated terrorist organizations, according to a new report.

The U.S. Campaign for Palestinian Rights, a Virginia-based nonprofit that coordinates the efforts of 329 different pro-BDS organizations, is a fiscal sponsor of the Palestinian BDS National Committee (BNC), which is based in the West Bank and Gaza, Tablet magazine reported Friday.

The BNC, created in Ramallah in 2007, counts the Council of National and Islamic Forces, commonly known as PNIF, among its members. Five different U.S-designated terrorist organizations are members of PNIF: Hamas, the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP), the Popular Front - General Command (PFLP-GC), the Palestine Liberation Front, and Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ).

2. Gaza Border Heats Up Again With Mortar Fire, Infiltration Attempts, and Fire Sparked by Incendiary Kites - Algemeiner

Israel's Gaza border saw further escalation over the weekend, with mortars fired into southern Israel, two terrorist infiltration attempts, and a major fire sparked by incendiary kites.

On Saturday, two mortars were detected over the Gaza Strip. The Iron Dome missile defense system destroyed one, while the other reportedly fell inside the Strip itself.

Last week saw a major escalation along the Gaza border, with over 100 rockets and mortars fired into Israeli territory, reportedly by both the Hamas and Islamic Jihad terror groups. One projectile fell in the courtyard of a kindergarten shortly before the students were due to arrive. The IDF responded with a massive barrage of retaliatory strikes, sparking fears of another Hamas-Israel war. However, a ceasefire reportedly brokered by Egypt took hold soon after.

3. IDF conducts second round of Gaza airstrikes after overnight fire - Times of Israel

Israeli jets early on Sunday morning carried out a second round of airstrikes in a matter of hours in the Gaza Strip, the army said, after four projectiles were fired overnight at southern Israel by Palestinian terror groups in the coastal enclave, shattering an unofficial ceasefire agreement.

The Israeli raids targeted "five terror targets in a military compound belonging to the naval force of the terror group Hamas in the northern Gaza Strip," the Israel Defense Forces said.

The air force on Saturday night had carried out 10 airstrikes on Hamas targets in response to earlier rocket fire.

4. Iron Dome intercepts 3 incoming projectiles as IDF strikes Gaza
- Times of Israel

The Iron Dome missile defense system intercepted three projectiles fired at southern Israel by terrorist groups in the Gaza Strip, with another apparently landing in Israeli territory, in four separate attacks in the predawn hours of Sunday, the army said.

Thousands of Israelis were sent rushing to bomb shelters throughout the night as sirens were repeatedly triggered to warn them of incoming fire.

The renewed fire came as Israeli fighter jets bombed a number of terrorist positions in the coastal enclave in response to an earlier rocket attack on southern Israel on Saturday.

5. High Court set to hear petitions against outpost legalization law -Times of Israel

The High Court of Justice will meet Sunday for a hearing on a pair of petitions filed against the so-called "Regulation Law," which seeks to legalize wildcat West Bank outposts.

Passed by the Knesset in February 2017, the legislation allows the Israeli government to expropriate private Palestinian land ex post facto where illegal outpost homes have been built, provided that the hilltop communities were established "in good faith" or had government support and that the Palestinian owners receive financial compensation for the land.

Analysts say the law will pave the way for the government to recognize some 4,000 illegally built Israeli homes.

The Daily Brief

1. Trump: North Korea summit back on for June 12 - Washington Times

President Trump announced Friday that his summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un will take place as originally planned on June 12 in Singapore as the start of a "process" to rid North Korea of nuclear weapons. Emerging from a historic and rare 90-minute-plus Oval Office meeting with a top North Korean official, Mr. Trump told reporters that the summit is back on, after he canceled it last week. But the president downplayed expectations for a quick deal on Pyongyang giving up its nuclear weapons, saying such an agreement won't be signed in Singapore, and the meeting will serve as the start of a process.

"I think you'll have a very positive result in the end - not from one meeting," Mr. Trump said. "I told them today, take your time, we can go fast or we can go slowly." Mr. Trump also revealed that he told North Korean vice chairman Kim Yong-chol that the U.S. will hold off on imposing more economic sanctions against Pyongyang while they are working towards a denuclearization agreement. The president even shunned, for the moment, using the term "maximum pressure campaign," a favorite phrase of his in describing the economic and potential military consequences to Pyongyang if it refuses to negotiate.

Among the topics discussed with Kim Yong-chol were the economic rehabilitation of North Korea, the process of denuclearization and even signing an agreement to formally end the Korean War, in which a truce was signed in 1953 separating North and South Korea along a demilitarized zone. The president said an agreement to end the war is among the more likely prospects to result from the Singapore summit. He said he has been advising South Korea and Japan that they will shoulder most of the cost of any economic aid for North Korea that would result from a denuclearization agreement. "They want to develop as a country. I don't think the United States is going to have to spend," Mr. Trump said. "South Korea will do it. I don't see the United States spending a lot of money." (Read more)

- O righteous Father in heaven, we trust You to oversee this summit that will rid North Korea of nuclear weapons and place a hold on Kim Jung-un's plans for war. God, send angels to minister to and protect President Trump in all these negotiations. Minimize American financial commitments and bring an end to the Korean war.

- Do two walk together unless they have agreed to do so? (Amos 3:3)

2. Cruz Attempts to Stop Political Weaponization of Security Clearance Process - FreeBeacon

Sen. Ted Cruz (R., Texas) placed a provision in the National Defense Authorization bill that would require the department to report to Congress when security clearances are taken away outside the normal five-year window for re-evaluating them. Both NSC adviser Adam Lovinger, who was detailed to the NSC after serving 12 years in the Pentagon's Office of Net Assessment, or ONA, with his security clearance intact, and NSC Africa specialist Robin Townley had their security clearances pulled at the beginning of the Trump administration. The Washington Free Beacon first reported on the politicization of the security clearance process.

Advocates for Lovinger and Townley argue that the clearances were pulled to sideline them from the NSC because of their conservative political views, not for any real wrongdoing. Lovinger also alleges that he was retaliated against for whistleblowing on how the ONA doled out research projects worth millions of taxpayer dollars. Cruz's legislative action also comes after Lovinger's attorney, Sean Bigley, wrote a Wall Street Journal editorial in early May blaming "hostile career bureaucrats" of the so-called "deep state" for "weaponizing" the process to thwart the president's agenda by holding or blocking appointees.

Bigley, an attorney who specializes in adjudicating security clearance cases, previously worked in the George W. Bush administration's Homeland Security Department. He says he doesn't use the term "deep state" lightly and previously wouldn't have believed that senior career bureaucrats and Obama holdovers would politicize the security clearance process if he hadn't represented so many clients facing the same problems over the last year. "I've heard from dozens of people inside the administration that they or someone they know is directly impacted by this problem," he said in an interview. "It's a real epidemic." (Read more)

- Lord God, we pray that You bring down the power and influence of the shadow government that is politicizing the security clearance process. Lord, send angels to war against the enemies of honest government workers and remove hostile career bureaucrats by the power of the Blood of Christ.

- "For we can do nothing against the truth, but for the truth." (2 Corinthians 13:8)

3. Obama Allies Scheme to Kneecap Trump's New National Security Team - FreeBeacon

Organizations and individuals entrenched in the Obama administration's pro-Iran echo chamber are engaging in a new plot to defame top White House national security officials, a campaign that mirrors a successful effort by these same groups to oust former Trump administration National Security Adviser Michael Flynn, according to sources familiar with the new effort.

Recent attacks by groups such as the Council on American-Islamic Relations, or CAIR, and the Southern Poverty Law Center, or SPLC, have centered on Fred Fleitz, a former CIA analyst who was recently tapped by Bolton to serve as his chief of staff on the White House National Security Council. Activists from CAIR, the SPLC, and the Anti-Defamation League, or ADL-a civil rights organization currently helmed by a former Obama administration official-are engaged in a coordinated campaign to smear Fleitz and force his ouster from the NSC. The smears have been picked up by sympathetic media outlets who worked closely with these groups while the Obama administration's so-called "echo chamber" was running at full steam, sources said.

Peter Hoekstra, former chair of the House Intelligence Committee and the Trump administration's current U.S. Ambassador to the Netherlands, told the Free Beacon that Fleitz is playing a key role in shaping the White House's national security agenda-which includes imposing maximum sanctions on Iran and shutting down European business deals with the Islamic Republic Morton Klein, longtime president of the Zionist Organization of America, slammed the ADL for putting partisan politics over its decades-old agenda of defending the Jewish community against rising anti-Semitism. "Fleitz is a strong supporter of Israel, understands the reality and dangers of the Arab Islamic war against Israel, and the danger of the Islamic Republic of Iran's threats against Israel and the U.S.," Klein told the Free Beacon. "It is deeply disappointing to see ADL, whose mission is to help Israel, oppose the appointment of such a great friend of the Jewish State." (Read more)

- Father God, render Obama's allies powerless in every evil work of defamation against Trump's National Security Team. We call Your warrior angels to war against the lies and deception of CAIR, SPLC and ADL. Bring them down, Almighty God. Protect Fred Fleitz with the Blood of Jesus.

- "As God spake by the mouth of His holy prophets, which have been since the world began: That we should be saved from our enemies, and from the hand of all that hate us." (Luke 1:70-71)

4. Trump appoints Rear Adm. Fears as homeland security adviser -
Washington Times

President Trump appointed Rear Adm. Douglas Fears Friday as his new homeland security adviser, the latest staff change at the White House National Security Council. White House national security adviser John R. Bolton said Adm. Frears "brings more than three decades of experience across a range of vital homeland security areas including counterterrorism, cybersecurity, and disaster response, to the NSC."

"Doug will serve as the president's homeland security advisor and my point person on an array of vital tasks ranging from overseeing the NSC cybersecurity directorate to coordinating the interagency efforts during disaster response," Mr. Bolton said. The move comes after Tom Bossert was ousted as Mr. Trump's White House homeland security adviser this spring, shortly after Mr. Bolton took over for Gen. H.R. McMaster. Adm. Fears has spent more than 30 years in the U.S. Coast Guard and had been serving as an acting homeland security adviser in recent weeks. He has been serving as senior director for resilience policy on the NSC staff. He also served on eight ships around the world, and served as commanding officer on three of those ships. (Read more)

- Mighty God, we ask that Your hand be upon Rear Adm. Fears to powerfully guide his leadership as homeland security advisor. Surround and strengthen him with God-fearing people who stand for the truth and loyally assist President Trump.

- "Order my steps in Your Word: and let not any iniquity have dominion over me." (Psalm 119:133)

5. Trump Appoints Gary Bauer of CUFI for US Commission on Religious Freedom - Algemeiner

US President Donald Trump has appointed Gary Bauer, the Washington director of the Christians United for Israel (CUFI) Action Fund, to the US Commission on International Religious Freedom. Bauer, an avowed Christian activist who formerly served in the Reagan administration, said he was "deeply honored and humbled" by the appointment. "We have seen a disturbing rise in antisemitism and persecution of Christians around the world, but especially in the Middle East. We must confront these two threats. Through this post, I will work to ensure that the president and Congress are provided real policy options for contending with religious persecution in the world," Bauer said in a statement.

The commission is an independent body that reviews the facts and circumstances of religious freedom violations abroad and makes policy recommendations to American leaders. In addition to Bauer, Trump appointed Nadine Maenza, the executive director of Patriot Voices-a conservative group founded by former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum in 2012-and Johnnie Moore, founder and CEO of the KAIROS Company, a Christian public-relations firm, to the commission. Speaker of the House Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) reappointed Kristina Arriaga to the commission. (Read more)

- Lord God, we are so very thankful and rejoice that You are giving strong Christian groups a powerful voice in America. Build them up in the most holy faith, Lord. Stretch Your arms around America and gather us close to Your heart and purpose for our nation.

- "And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, and we behold His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth." (John 1:14)

6. The US economy suddenly looks like it's unstoppable - CNBC

In the face of persistent fears that the world could be facing a trade war and a synchronized slowdown, the U.S. economy enters June with a good deal of momentum. Friday's data provided convincing evidence that domestic growth remains intact even if other developed economies are slowing. A better-than-expected nonfarm payrolls report coupled with a convincing uptick in manufacturing and construction activity showed that the second half approaches with a tail wind blowing.

"The fundamentals all look very solid right now," said Gus Faucher, chief economist at PNC. "You've got job growth and wage gains that are supporting consumer spending, and tax cuts as well. There's a little bit of a drag from higher energy prices, but the positives far outweigh that. Business incentives are in good shape." The day started off with the payrolls report showing a gain of 223,000 in May, well above market expectations of 188,000, and the unemployment rate hitting an 18-year low of 3.8 percent.

Then, the ISM manufacturing index registered a 58.7 reading - representing the percentage of businesses that report expanding conditions - that also topped Wall Street estimates. Finally, the construction spending report showed a monthly gain of 1.8 percent, a full point higher than expectations. Put together, the data helped fuel expectations that first-quarter growth of 2.2 percent will be the low-water point of 2018.

The most recent slate of widely followed barometers could see economists ratchet up growth expectations. Already, the Atlanta Fed's GDPNow tracker sees the second quarter rising by 4.8 percent. While the measure also was strongly optimistic on the first quarter as well, at one point estimating 5.4 percent growth, other gauges are positive as well. CNBC's Rapid Update, for instance, puts the April-to-June period at 3.6 percent. (Read more)

- Father God, how grateful we are for all the blessings You are pouring out on the American economy. Thank You for new life and the manifestation of Your great and mighty resurrection power.

- "And Jabez called on the God of Israel saying, "Oh, that You would bless me indeed, and enlarge my [a]territory, that Your hand would be with me, and that You would keep me from evil, that I may not cause pain!" So God granted him what he requested." (I Chronicles 4:10)

7. NYC sanctuary policy sends 'hundreds' of criminals back onto streets: DHS - Washington Times

Dozens of illegal immigrants shielded by New York City's sanctuary policy this year have already gone on to be arrested for still other crimes including drug and theft, the federal government said Friday, looking to pressure the city to change. U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement flagged more than 440 people in New York's jails as deportation targets from January to April. Of those, "hundreds" were released and 40 have already been arrested for new crimes, said ICE, a branch of Homeland Security.

"Simply put, the politics and rhetoric in this city are putting its own communities at an unnecessary risk," said Scott Mechowski, acting field office director for ICE's deportation office in New York. A spokesman for New York Mayor Bill de Blasio said they were striking a balance with their policy. "New York City will work with federal partners in the interest of public safety, but not to be an arm of immigration enforcement," said Matt Dhaiti, a spokesman in the mayor's Office of Immigrant Affairs.

Mr. de Blasio signed legislation several years ago listing the crimes where the city is willing to cooperate with deportation officials. He said anything involving violence or use of a weapon, major drug offenses or terrorism-related activity can result in someone being turned over to ICE, as long as the crime was recent. (Read more)

- Almighty God, only You can stop this flow of criminals being released from jails and endangering the population daily. Raise up law enforcement to stop this lawlessness from existing in our country.

- "The law of the Lord is perfect, converting the soul: the testimony of the Lord is sure, making wise the simple." (Psalm 19:7)

8. U.S. in Early Talks for Potential Summit Between Trump and Putin - WSJ

The White House is planning for a potential summit between President Donald Trump and President Vladimir Putin of Russia, according to people familiar with the efforts, a meeting that would bring to the international stage one of the world's most enigmatic political relationships. A senior administration official said Friday that Jon Huntsman, the U.S. ambassador to Russia, has been in Washington to help arrange a meeting between Messrs. Trump and Putin.

The planning is still at an early stage, the official said, with the two nations needing to agree on a date and location. "This has been an ongoing project of Ambassador Huntsman, stretching back months, of getting a formal meeting between Putin and Trump," the official said.

Any meeting between the two presidents would be expected to include discussions on Syria, Ukraine and nuclear-arms control. The summit's purpose would be to resolve longstanding differences, people familiar with the matter said. The summit would mark the third meeting between Messrs. Trump and Putin, who held discussions on the sidelines of two international meetings in 2017-one at the Group of 20 summit in Germany last July and at a November summit in Vietnam.

Meeting Mr. Putin last year on the sidelines of a G-20 summit meeting in Germany, Mr. Trump voiced concerns about Russian interference in the election, then-Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said at the time. Mr. Putin, during a two-hour meeting that lasted twice as long as planned, denied any involvement. Former presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama each held summits with Mr. Putin within six months of taking office. Mr. Trump has now been in office more than 16 months. (Read more)

- Almighty God, lead the way toward victory between these two presidents. Send the Word of the Lord to them regarding Your perfect will for Syria, Ukraine, nuclear-arms control and show them what they are to accomplish.

- "Now I beseech you, brethren, by the Name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that you all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you; but that you be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment."
(I Corinthians 1:10)

9. UN Redefines What It Means to Be 'Human' in Startling New Campaign - CNS News

In blatant violation of international law, the United Nations Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights has unveiled a startling new campaign that claims "you have human rights since birth." The unsettling image, which depicts a baby's arm with the statement written on a hospital bracelet, makes clear the position of this U.N. body-human rights should not be afforded to human beings until after they are born. Abortion advocates might applaud this claim, but the position of the body flies in the face of established, and binding, international law on the rights of the unborn. As the U.N. body in charge of human rights, the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights is mandated to uphold the international legal framework. Deploying the poster at strategic vantage points at the U.N. in Geneva serves as a provocative, and jarring, assault on the fundamental principle of the right to life enshrined in international law and the countries that continue to defend it.

The Convention on the Rights of the Child, the pre-eminent international treaty on children's rights, leaves no room for ambiguity in its preamble. "The child, by reason of his physical and mental immaturity, needs special safeguards and care, including appropriate legal protection, before as well as after birth," it states. Other international treaties unequivocally reference the right to life of the unborn, such as the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights. In this treaty, the death penalty is prohibited for pregnant women to "save the life of an innocent unborn child," as explained in its accompanying interpretative documents. (Read more)

- Almighty God, we plead for the unborn to be saved from the spirit of abortion and cry out to You for Your love and protection over them. Give mothers hope and affection for their little ones. God, send heavenly warrior angels to every abortion clinic and close them down through the power of the Blood of Jesus.

- "Before I formed you in the belly I knew you; and before you came forth out of the womb I sanctified you, and I ordained you a prophet unto the nations." (Jeremiah 1:5)

10. Trump claims broad war powers in new Justice Department memo - Washington Times

The Justice Department said President Trump can unilaterally commit the military whenever he claims vital U.S. interests are at stake, releasing a new legal briefing defending his decision to launch military strikes against Syria's chemical weapons capability in April. The Office of Legal Counsel, which serves as the government's chief internal legal watchdog, said the strikes were well within historical precedents dating back to George Washington and Thomas Jefferson. And the OLC lawyers seemed to signal ever-expanding categories where presidents will commit U.S. troops through their own powers, without first seeking approval from Congress.

"While the United States is not the world's policeman, as its power has grown, the breadth of its regional interests has expanded and threats to national interests posed by foreign disorder have increased," Steven A. Engel, assistant attorney general in the OLC, said in an official 22-page opinion laying out the justification for the April action. Mr. Engel said Mr. Trump "could reasonably determine that Syria's use of chemical weapons in the ongoing civil war threatens to undermine further peace and security of the Near East." Mr. Trump also claimed a valid interest in heading off a humanitarian crisis, and in trying to constrain future proliferation of chemical weapons, the lawyer concluded. (Read more)

- Father God, we ask that You bring cohesive godly strength to our President and our nation. We claim Syria for God, and ask that their chemical weapons be destroyed. God, dispatch angels to block all attacks from emissaries of satan.

- "For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strongholds." (2 Corinthians 10:4)

11. At least 25 dead in Guatemala volcano eruption - Fox News

Authorities in Guatemala said at least 25 people died after Volcan de Fuego-Spanish for "volcano of fire"-erupted and blanketed nearby villages in heavy ash. The rescue effort was suspended due to darkness and rain until early morning, a municipal firefighters' spokesman said. (Read more)

- Father, we cry out tonight for all who mourn the lives lost in this eruption. We ask that Your grace would lead others to safety who are now in the path of danger in Guatemala. We ask this in Your name, amen.

- "I will show wonders in the heavens above and signs on the earth below, blood and fire and billows of smoke." (Acts 2:19)

The Daily Jot

To unsubscribe or not to unsubscribe

Lately, I have noticed a trend among some Daily Jot readers. There are certain hot-button topics that people claiming to be Christian do not want to read about. Among them are socialism and religion, the Millennial generation challenges, Israel and God's people, Christianity supporting ungodly issues. There are issues that churches across America are willing to soft sell or wink at rather than deal with from a scriptural perspective. They don't want to lose people due to offense. Just like people may know what is written in the Daily Jot is true, just as they know the scriptures are true, but they would rather disengage or unsubscribe than look the issue in the mirror.

If you are a follower of Christ, the Messiah, then you know his promise. The entire Bible is given to us as the word of God, as is Jesus Christ. In Christ is our salvation and in the Bible is instruction on how we are to work out our salvation here on earth. Jesus said in Matthew 10:28, "And fear not them who kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell." The promise of eternal life, knowing the end game so to speak, should give us all the confidence to speak boldly as we ought to speak and having done all, to stand. Jesus said in Matthew 24:6 that ...see that you are not troubled, for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet."

Isaiah 54:17 says, "No weapon that is formed against you shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against you in judgment you shall condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their righteousness is of me, says the LORD." Likewise, Isaiah 33:14-16 says, "The sinners in Zion are afraid; fearfulness has surprised the hypocrites. Who among us shall dwell with the devouring fire? who among us shall dwell with everlasting burnings? He that walks righteously, and speaks uprightly; he that despises the gain of oppressions, that keeps his hands from the holding of bribes, that stops his ears from hearing of bloodshed, and shuts his eyes from seeing evil; He shall dwell on high: his place of defense shall be the fortresses of rocks: bread shall be given him; his waters shall be sure."

As the LORD says, your heritage--your prophetic place--is in his righteousness and it is you who shall have a place of defense in the fortress of rocks, dwelling on high with bread and water. Do not be overwhelmed by the things of this world. We are exhorted in Romans 12:21 to, "Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good." Let's not sit around ignoring what is unrighteous, but rather seize our place in the righteousness of the LORD. We don't have to be enslaved by the oppression of the world. We can stand in that gap, be that royal priesthood. We were not put here on earth to live in a spirit of fear, but of power, love and a sound mind. So after doing all, we stand. Or . . . we can merely unsubscribe.

Have a Blessed and Powerful Day!

About CHPP

About Capitol Hill Prayer Partners

Our Mission Statement

Capitol Hill Prayer Partners (CHPP) is a ministry which is positioned on Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C., helping members of the Body of Christ to "pray for those in authority over us" in our federal government. Our primary purpose is to offer intercession on site for the members of Congress and their staffs each day that the Senate and the House of Representatives are in session; and our chief prayer focus is that "God's will be done in earth, as it is in heaven."

Because Jesus Christ has shed His blood for all, we, too, pray for ALL, in a nonpartisan manner. Also, because the scriptures indicate that "the effectual, fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much" (James 4:17), we are confident that fervent prayer, offered in the halls of the highest chambers of government in our land, can avail much for America. Capitol Hill Prayer Partners welcomes those who feel called to join us, engaging in this strategic work of intercession for our nation: "For there is no power but of God; the powers that be are ordained of God."
