Focus on Israel

1. 'If Netanyahu gets voted out, it will be a disaster for Israel' - Israel National News

A defeat for Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu in this week's Knesset election would be a "disaster for Israel" Fox News host, lawyer, former chief of staff to the US Attorney General, and pundit Mark Levin said during an interview with Arutz Sheva.

Speaking with Arutz Sheva just days after he endorsed Netanyahu's reelection bid, Levin took aim at the media, the Israeli electoral system, Blue and White chief Benny Gantz, and Israeli Attorney General Avichai Mandelblit for his decision to indict the prime minister, calling the charges 'weak'.

Levin argued that the three indictments pending against Netanyahu rested on trumped up charges, and criticized the media - particularly the Israeli media - for accepting Mandelblit's indictments without questioning the basis of the charges.

2. Netanyahu calls for emergency meeting on election fraud - Jerusalem Post

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu requested an emergency meeting with the head of the Central Elections Committee, Supreme Court Judge Hanan Melcer, ahead of Tuesday's election, following a report of widespread voter fraud in the Arab sector in the April 9 election.

Maariv columnist Kalman Liebskind reported on Friday that 82 people complained about irregularities in the Arab sector, and all but two said police never questioned them.

"They will try to steal the election," Netanyahu said in an interview with KAN 11 on Saturday night.

A Central Elections Committee spokesman said the Likud's request would be considered by the committee's presidium. MK David Bitan, who is the Likud's representative in the presidium, formally submitted the request late Saturday night.

Likud said the findings of the investigation were grave and indicate that the election was "stolen" from Netanyahu, because without forged votes, the United Arab List-Balad alliance might not have crossed the electoral threshold. In that scenario, Likud might have received two more seats, and the second election could have been averted.

3. Report: Likud Members Deny Plan to Dismiss Netanyahu If Rightwing Bloc Falls Short of 61 - Jewish Press

Reshet Bet radio on Monday morning, the eve of the new election, reported that officials in Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's circle are concerned that if the rightwing bloc fails to get 61 seats on Tuesday, the Likud would launch an internal impeachment process to replace Netanyahu.

This concern has been voiced by anonymous Netanyahu associates in recent days, and it is focused on an eventuality where Netanyahu and the rightwing bloc fail to achieve a clear majority of 61 seats.

To date, such statements have been made openly only by Israel Beiteinu chairman Avigdor Liberman or Blue&White officials. Liberman recently described the process by which Netanyahu would be ousted, saying: "If, after a round of [rightwing opposition leaders' meetings with Netanyahu], there are no 61 recommendations - it is obvious that the next day he will be replaced by the Likud."

4. Israelis vote Tuesday but will wait weeks for their new prime minister - World Israel News

Israelis go the polls on Tuesday to elect a new parliament with the hope that either Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu or challenger MK Benny Gantz can form a new governing majority in the weeks to come.

In an unprecedented development, Israel is holding a second Knesset election within a matter of months, after Netanyahu failed to cobble together a majority following the April 9 ballot.

The Netanyahu-led Likud party, and Blue and White, headed by Gantz, finished tied with 35 seats each in the April ballot.

Netanyahu was given the nod by the president, a ceremonial position in Israel, to get the first crack at forming a government coalition because parties representing a majority of the new parliament recommended the incumbent premier to President Reuven Rivlin in consultations which took place in the immediate aftermath of April's election.

5. Netanyahu approves new Jordan Valley settlement, says US peace plan imminent - Israel Hayom

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu convened his final pre-election cabinet meeting on Sunday in the Jordan Valley on Sunday, reiterating his pledge to annex the area.

During the special cabinet meeting, the cabinet also voted to approve a new settlement in the area. The settlement, Mevo'ot Yericho, has previously been an illegal outpost, but now it is set to get official recognition.

Netanyahu further said that it was clear that the US peace plan was going to be released just days after the election, even before a new coalition is formed and a new government is sworn in. He said Israeli Ambassador to the United States had a similar assessment, and therefore it was imperative to green light the new settlement.

The meeting, along with the new pledges, came despite an international outcry over Netanyahu's promise to annex the West Bank's Jordan Valley. Annexing the area, considered to be the heartland of any future Palestinian state, would all but extinguish any remaining Palestinian hopes for independence.

The Daily Brief

1. Democrats frown on targeting gang databases with 'red flag' laws - Washington Examiner

House Democrats this week advanced a new measure to encourage states to pass "red flag" laws, known as extreme risk protection orders, that authorize removing guns and ammunition from dangerous individuals.

Democrats on the House Judiciary Committee amended the measure during a Wednesday mark-up to authorize the federal government to issue extreme risk protection orders in some instances, but they rejected an amendment that would have red-flagged anyone who law enforcement lists as a gang member.

"The majority of violent crime, including gun violence, in the United States is linked to gangs," Rep. Ken Buck, a Colorado Republican who sponsored the amendment, said Wednesday. "My amendment is quite simple. It would allow the issuance of a red flag order against anyone whose name appears in a gang database if there was probable cause to include that individual in the database."

Democrats objected with reasons that sounded very familiar to Republicans. GOP lawmakers have staunchly opposed "No Fly, No Buy" proposals Democrats have tried to pass in the House in recent years because the lists flag the wrong people. (Read more)

- Father we pray that these red flag laws will be stopped in the Senate. We pray that the rights of the law-abiding people will be preserved, and that people will once gain find common sense and not use these laws to target ordinary people who have no desire to harm others.

- "A false witness that speaks lies, and he that sows discord among brethren." (Proverbs 6:19)

2. Democrats Call for Justice Brett Kavanaugh to Be 'Impeached'- Breitbart

A growing number of Democrat presidential candidates and groups are lining up behind calls to impeach Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, after the New York Times reported new allegations regarding claims he had pulled his pants down and thrust his penis at a female student during a college party. The report came from a forthcoming book written by two Times reporters titled, "The Education of Brett Kavanaugh."

The first of the candidates to call for Kavanaugh's impeachment was former Housing and Urban Development Secretary Julian Castro, who tweeted on Saturday, "It's more clear than ever that Brett Kavanaugh lied under oath. He should be impeached." (Read more)

- Lord, just because someone writes a book, doesn't mean it's true. We pray for Justice Kavanaugh and his family during these tumultuous times. Guard his heart, and we pray that no weapon formed against him will prosper as the attacks continue. Bring truth and reveal widely that the accuser did not remember any such incident.

- "Deliver me not over unto the will of mine enemies: for false witnesses are risen up against me, and such as breathe out cruelty." (Psalm 27:12)

3. Biden Promises to Release Medical Records amid Mounting Health Concerns - Breitbart

Former Vice President Joe Biden (D) vowed to release his medical records during a conversation with reporters Friday amid mounting concerns over his general state of health. Biden told reporters Friday that he will release his medical records following his next physical, which he says will occur before the Iowa caucuses take place.

"There's no reason for me not to release my medical records," Biden said, according to the Daily Mail. Biden has been facing mounting questions and criticisms regarding the state of his mental and physical health following a string of gaffes and brain freezes on the campaign trail in recent weeks.

During a campaign stop in Keene, New Hampshire, last month, Biden mistakenly praised the beauty of the neighboring state, Vermont, after being asked about the quintessential New England town. (Read more)

- Father, we pray for Mr. Biden, that You will bring the truth into both his current and prior actions and policies.

4. GM responds to planned UAW strike: 'We presented a strong offer'- Fox Business

General Motors called the United Auto Workers decision to strike Sunday "disappointing," saying it presented a "strong offer." The union's four-year contract expired Saturday at 11:59 p.m., and UAW leadership said 49,200 workers would begin striking Sunday night.

"We presented a strong offer that improves wages, benefits and grows U.S. jobs in substantive ways and it is disappointing that the UAW leadership has chosen to strike at midnight tonight," GM said in a statement Sunday. "We have negotiated in good faith and with a sense of urgency. Our goal remains to build a strong future for our employees and our business." (Read more)

- Lord as this issue arises, an investigation into UAW corruption from its leadership also surfaces. We pray for those who are just involved in putting food on the table for their families, that You will undertake to bring about fair settlements. We pray for a move of Your Spirit to flow over all involved in this strike and the investigation, that truth will bring freedom.

- "Truth shall spring out of the earth, and righteousness shall look down from heaven." (Psalm 85:11)

5. New York Moves to Force Its Values on Religious Schools: Parochial School Leaders and Homeschool Families Alarmed- CBN

The New York Department of Education is moving to force all private schools in the state to perform as public schools. The department is reevaluating a 125-year-old law that would require private schools to offer the equivalent instruction to students as required in public schools.

This means all private schools' curriculum, scheduling, lesson plans, hiring standards, and reporting requirements would have to follow all regulations as required by the state for public schools. The new regulations would also give the power to local school districts to oversee and inspect private and parochial schools. If a school was found lacking in compliance with the proposed regulations, the school could be closed.

The Pacific Justice Institute (PJI), a non-profit legal defense organization, represents Parents Union for Religious Integrity of Torah Education (PURITE). The parents and rabbis who sought PJI's assistance practice ultra-Orthodox Hasidic Judaism. They have been training their youth in small religious schools known as yeshivas for thousands of years. The schools instruct in subjects such as math and English language while focusing primarily on the Torah and Talmud. PURITE notes that the proposed regulations would essentially outlaw their way of life and education. Parochial school leaders and homeschool families are also concerned about the suggested rules. (Read more)

- Father, we pray that the actions of New York will be brought quickly to the courts and be reversed. We ask that You preserve the rights of the people against the plans of the enemy.

- "He delivered me from my strong enemy, and from them which hated me: for they were too strong for me." (Psalm 18:17)

6. California Bans Private Prisons - Including ICE Detention Centers - Zero Hedge

California lawmakers passed a bill on Wednesday banning private prisons from operating in the state - a move which will likely also lead to the closure of four large immigration detention facilities that can hold up to a combined 18,000 people, according to The Guardian. The move is a dramatic shift for California, which used to rely on private prisons to reduce overcrowding in state-run facilities.

Private prison companies used to view California as one of their fastest-growing markets. As recently as 2016, private prisons locked up approximately 7,000 Californians, about 5% of the state's total prison population, according to the federal Bureau of Justice Statistics. But in recent years, thousands of inmates have been transferred from private prisons back into state-run facilities. As of June, private prisons held 2,222 of California's total inmate population. -The Guardian (Read more)

- Lord, the state of California desperately needs a repentance move of Your Spirit. We pray that You will bring a move of wisdom and life to that state, and reival to all the Christians there.

- "And they come into their right mind in the land where they are carried captive, if they convert and pray unto thee in the land of their captivity, saying, We have sinned, we have done iniquity and have dealt wickedly." (2 Chronicles 6:37)

7. Judge to rule if search warrant on Daleiden was valid, could result in charges dropped - LifeSite news

UPDATE (09-13-2019 08:31 EDT): Judge Hite ruled Friday morning he will respond to arguments on quashing the search warrant and dropping the charges in a written submission Monday.

SAN FRANCISCO, California, September 13, 2019 (LifeSiteNews) - Pro-life advocate David Daleiden, whose undercover journalism provided evidence of Planned Parenthood illegally trafficking of aborted baby body parts, is expected to begin testifying Friday at his and Sandra Merritt's criminal preliminary hearing in San Francisco.

The pro-life Center for Medical Progress investigators are charged with 15 felony counts of illegal taping of confidential communications in connection with the undercover videos they published exposing Planned Parenthood's trafficking of baby body parts. (Read more)

- Father, we pray that Your Mighty Hand would grant favor to Mr. Daleiden and allow the charges to be dropped.

8. More than 2,000 preserved fetal remains found at abortion doctor's home - Washington Times

More than 2,000 medically preserved fetal remains have been found at the Illinois home of a former Indiana abortion clinic doctor who died last week, authorities said.

The Will County Sheriff's Office said in a news release late Friday that an attorney for Dr. Ulrich Klopfer's family contacted the coroner's office Thursday about possible fetal remains being found at the home in an unincorporated part of Will County in northeastern Illinois.

The sheriff's office said authorities found 2,246 preserved fetal remains but there's no evidence medical procedures were performed at the home. The coroner's office took possession of the remains. An investigation is underway. (Read more)

- Lord, this report grieves us all, and we know that many more precious lives have been lost through abortion. We ask once again for repentance in America, for the real horror of abortion to change the minds of those who have championed it, including the 2020 Democrats.

- "So innocent blood will not be shed in the midst of your land which the LORD your God gives you as an inheritance, and bloodguiltiness be on you." (Deut 19:10)

9. PA Gov. Tom Wolf converts to Islam - Harrisburg100

Governor Wolf's official Islamic conversation has not yet been made public, other than these photographs circulating on social media.

It has become evident through the photographs that Wolf has in fact already converted. According to Islam it is not permissible for a non-Muslim to pray either in the ranks or on his own.

It is required that one converts to Islam before he prays, then to purify himself [by doing ghusl], and then fulfill the conditions of prayer. He is included in the obligation of prayer, and he is to be punished if he does not become Muslim and pray, but it will not be accepted from him unless he enters Islam.

Governor Wolf has developed a rapport within the Muslim community. National headlines circulated for weeks following the outburst of Wolf being "horrified" by lawmaker Stephanie Borowicz after she invoked the name of Jesus just before the Legislature's first Muslim woman was sworn in on the Quran at the Statehouse in Harrisburg. This happened on a Monday.

To emphasize their religious allegiance, the following day State Rep. Jason Dawkins (another Muslim lawmaker) was allowed to open Tuesday's legislative session by reading from the Quran, prompting applause in the chamber. (Read more)

- Lord, we pray that You will bring Gov Wolf to truth with a move of Your Holy Spirit.

10. Iran detains United Arab Emirates-bound ship, crew for alleged diesel smuggling amid regional tensions: report - Fox News

Iran on Monday reportedly seized a vessel in the Persian Gulf for allegedly smuggling diesel to the United Arab Emirates -- a close ally of Saudi Arabia -- amid the ratcheting up of regional tensions after a group of Iranian-backed rebels said they were responsible for the attack on a Saudi oil facility over the weekend.

The vessel seized Monday morning was carrying 250,000 liters of fuel when it was intercepted by Iran's Revolutionary Guard Corps, according to the Islamic Republic's semi-official Iranian Students' News Agency.

"It was detained near Iran's Greater Tunb island in the Persian Gulf . . . the crew have been handed over to legal authorities in the southern Hormozgan province," ISNA reported, according to Reuters. The nationalities of those aboard the vessel were not immediately clear. (Read more)

11. Satellite Picture Shows Utter Destruction of ISIS-'Infested' Island After US Bombing - Western Journal

Islamic State group fighters who thought they could use an island on the Tigris River to hide from America and its allies learned differently this week after 80,000 pounds of laser-guided bombs reduced their shelters to smoking craters.

The attack took place on Sept. 10, according to Maj. Gen. Eric T. Hill, commander of the Special Operations Joint Task Force - Operation Inherent Resolve, and the Iraqi Counter-Terrorism Service.

"We're denying Daesh the ability to hide on Qanus Island," Hill said in a statement, using the Arabic term for the Islamic State terror organization. (Read more)

12. Iran: Republic ready for 'full-fledged war' - Israel Hayom

Iran denied on Sunday it was involved in Yemen rebel drone attacks the previous day targeting the world's biggest oil processing facility and an oil field in Saudi Arabia, just hours after America's top diplomat alleged that Tehran was behind the "unprecedented attack on the world's energy supply."

Iranian foreign ministry spokesman Abbas Mousavi, speaking on state TV, dismissed the US allegation as "pointless". A senior Revolutionary Guards commander warned that the Islamic Republic was ready for "full-fledged" war. (Read more)

- Father God, we thank You that these heated words now seem to be calming down. We ask for Your divine intervention, that our nation may remain in peace, in Your name, amen.

Prophecy clock moves forward with Iran

An Iranian-backed attack on Saudi Arabian oil interests moves the end time prophecy clock forward. Iran-allied Houthi rebels in neighboring Yemen claimed credit for the attack, saying they sent 10 drones to strike the facilities. Some sources say, however, that the attack could have been launched from an Iranian-controlled area in Iraq. Iran is, in alignment with its ongoing pattern, denying any responsibility and says it is prepared to go to war with the US. In mid-June, two oil tankers were attacked in the Gulf of Oman and Iran was accused of being the culprit. This prompted President Trump to send an additional 1,000 troops to the Middle East and put American military on high alert.

Iran is conducting a proxy war in Syria. Major terrorist actors are involved such as Hamas, Hezbollah, what's left of the Islamic State, and several lessor groups. Major end time players also are involved-Turkey, Iran, Syria-in addition to the United States and Russia. It is a complex cluster of competing interests, ultimately aimed at Iran trying to control the region. Now Iran is not only fighting in Syria, but also attacking Saudi Arabia and thumping Israel and the US on the chest in a dangerous multinational chess match over supremacy. According to Daily Jot sources, Iran has made incredible advances toward controlling the Middle East not only in Syria, but also in Iraq, Kurdistan, and Lebanon.

In Daniel 8:19, the angel Gabriel says, "Behold, I will make thee know what shall be in the last end of the indignation: for at the time appointed the end shall be. The ram which you saw having two horns are the kings of Media and Persia. And the rough goat is the king of Grecia." Strong's Concordance interprets the word "Grecia" in Hebrew as "Yavan, a son of Japheth (the third son of Noah), his descendants and their land." The Genesis 10 table of nations indicates this area was not only Greece (as Bible interpretations imply), but also the Eastern Mediterranean, including parts of modern Turkey (Magog, Tubal, Meshech). The ram would correspond with modern Iran (Persia).

Ezekiel 38 says that in the end of days, Gog of Magog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal (all in Turkey), leads a coalition of Persia (Iran), Libya; and Ethiopia (Sudan) against Israel. When we see Iran being brought into such a coalition with Turkey and these prophetic nations aligning against Israel, we know this time is near. Iran is currently making a play to control the region and positioning to eliminate Israel from the face of the earth (Iran's stated intentions). We know through prophecy, however, that Iran must come into league with Turkey for the end time battle led by Gog. Ezekiel 38:23 says, "Thus will I magnify myself, and sanctify myself; and I will be known in the eyes of many nations, and they shall know that I am the Lord." Watch and pray.

Have a blessed and powerful day,

Breaking! Trump Doesn't Want War

Trump: Iran Appears to Be Culprit for Saudi Oil Attacks
President Donald Trump said on Monday that it looked like Iran was responsible for attacks over the weekend on Saudi Arabian oil plants, but he doesn't want war with anyone and was in no rush to respond and was still trying to find out who was behind the strikes.

Several U.S. cabinet officials, including Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and U.S. Secretary of Energy Rick Perry, have blamed Tehran for the attacks, which cut 5% of world crude oil production.

Iran has denied blame, with Iranian President Hassan Rouhani saying the strike was carried out by "Yemeni people" retaliating to attacks by the Saudi-led coalition in Yemen's four-year-old war.

Trump said the United States had a lot of options to respond to the attacks, but declined to say what measures he was considering. He added that, while the United States could help, he had not promised protection to Riyadh.

The attacks on Saudi Arabia have damaged the globe's largest crude processing plant and triggered the biggest jump in oil prices in nearly 30 years.

News from Turkey

Turkey Says Delivery of Second S-400 Battery Complete

Turkey's defense ministry said on Sunday that the delivery of a second battery of Russian S-400 missile defense systems has been completed as of Sunday, and added that the systems would become active in April 2020. Ankara and Washington have been at loggerheads over Turkey's purchase of the S-400 systems, which the United States says are not compatible with NATO defenses and pose a threat to Lockheed Martin's F-35 "stealth" fighter jets. The initial parts of the system were delivered to Ankara in July despite warnings about possible US sanctions over the purchase. The United States has also expelled Turkey from the F-35 program, but Ankara has so far dismissed the warnings. In a statement, the defense ministry said the delivery of the second S-400 battery to Ankara was completed. Efforts to mount the systems and train personnel who will use them were continuing, it said, adding that it planned to activate the S-400s in April 2020.

Related coverage

Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusglu told an interview with CNN Turk on Saturday that the S-400s would be activated despite repeated US warnings. "They (US officials) told us 'don't activate them and we can sort this out,' but we told them that we didn't buy these systems as a prop," Cavusoglu said, adding that Turkey would be open to buying US company Raytheon's Patriot systems as well.
In an interview on Friday, Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan told Reuters he will discuss buying Patriot missiles with President Donald Trump this month, saying his personal bond with the US leader could overcome the crisis caused by the S-400s.
Though Washington has not yet announced whether it will impose sanctions on Ankara, Trump has shown sympathy towards Turkey. He has not fully ruled out sanctions. On Monday, US Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said the Trump administration was considering imposing sanctions related to Turkey's purchase of the S-400 systems, but no decisions have been made.

The dispute over the S-400 systems is one of several issues straining ties between the United States and Turkey that include the ongoing conflict in Syria, among others. (algemeiner.com) Read more

"The rich and poor meet together: the Lord is the maker of them all." (Proverbs 22:2)


On the happy, golden shore, Where the faithful part no more, When the storms of life are over, Meet me there; Where the night dissolves away Into pure and perfect day, I am going home to stay-meet me there.


Meet me there, meet me there,
Where the tree of life is blooming,
Meet me there;
When the storms of life are o'er,
On the happy golden shore,
Where the faithful part no more,
Meet me there.

Here our fondest hopes are vain, Dearest links are rent in twain, But in Heav'n no throb of pain- Meet me there; By the river sparkling bright In the city of delight, Where our faith is lost in sight, Meet me there.


Where the harps of angels ring, And the blest forever sing, In the palace of the King, Meet me there; Where in sweet communion blend Heart with heart and friend with friend, In a world that ne'er shall end, Meet me there.

Signs and Wonders


Studies show that September is one of the very best months for auroras. At this time of year around the Arctic Circle, the lights often appear for no apparent reason. That's exactly what happened last night. With no geomagnetic storm to provoke a display, one appeared anyway.
Jani Ylinampa took the picture from Rovaniemi, Finland. "These were quite bright auroras, lighting up the sky even with the nearly full Moon as competition," says Ylinampa. "This was the best show of the season so far, without exaggeration!"

What supercharges the auroras of September? It's called the "Russell-McPherron effect," named after the researchers who first explained it. During weeks around equinoxes, cracks open in Earth's magnetic field. Solar wind pours in and fuels unexpected displays of aurora borealis. Stay tuned for even more as the actual equinox approaches on Sept. 23rd.

Doorbell Cam Catches Young Boy Reciting the Pledge of Allegiance after His American Flag Was Vandalized: 'It's a Pretty Neat Little Moment'

"We've taught him the significance of America and why people want to move here and our freedoms and he wanted to learn about that." -Mike Satterthwaite

[Faithwire.com] Recently a Virginia family attempted to catch the person who had vandalized the American flag on their front porch but saw something patriotic and heartwarming instead: their 5-year-old son reciting the pledge of allegiance.

Mike Satterthwaite was at home with his family when he realized his American flag had been vandalized. The new flag had been taken from the mount and left on the ground of the front steps, which upset his five-year-old son...

...A few days later Satterthwaite purchased and installed the Ring doorbell system so that he could catch the vandal who had ripped the flag out of the mount.

In an attempt to catch a criminal, Satterthwaite instead watched his son perform a patriotic and heartfelt act..
