Focus on Israel

1. Israel, bracing for Iranian assault, studies recent attack on Saudi oil facility - Times of Israel

Israel's defense establishment is analyzing last month's strike on Saudi Arabian oil facilities, which is being blamed on Iran, to learn how to protect the country from a possible similar assault, Hebrew media reported Monday.

The September 14 combined drone and cruise missile barrage on two facilities knocked out half of the kingdom's oil production, and impressed Israeli analysts in that it succeeded in penetrating Saudi defenses, which include the Patriot air defense system that Israel also uses, Channel 13 news reported.

A senior officer in the IDF's Military Intelligence unit, who could only be identified by the first letter of his Hebrew name, 'Yud,' told Channel 13 that the Iranians showed an impressive ability in hitting Saudi Arabia.

"They get a high mark, too high," Yud said of the Iranian attack, but stressed that Tehran would "absolutely" not succeed if it attempted to launch a similar assault on Israel.

2. Iran to Sue U.S. Over Breach of Nuclear Deal: Lawsuit will go to International Court of Justice - Free Beacon

Iran is readying to sue the United States in the International Court of Justice over President Donald Trump's decision to abandon the landmark nuclear deal and reapply tough new sanctions on Tehran, according to officials in Iran's judiciary.

Laya Joneidi, Iran's vice president for legal affairs, announced on Monday that Iran will bring charges against the United States and seek an undisclosed amount of monetary damages as a result of America's "breach of the nuclear deal," according to the country's state-controlled press.

With Iran's economy on the ropes as a result of the Trump administration's sanctions, Tehran is seeking multiple avenues to recoup lost revenue. Iran has won monetary awards in the past for suits brought before the ICJ. The Obama administration sought to settle several pending cases at the court that resulted in Tehran being awarded hard currency.

3. Netanyahu hearings end, but defense gets two more weeks for written submissions - Times of Israel

State prosecutors and Benjamin Netanyahu's lawyers on Monday evening wrapped up four days of pre-indictment hearings over the pending corruption charges against the prime minister.

Netanyahu's lawyers met with Attorney General Avichai Mandelblit for over 10 hours at the Justice Ministry in Jerusalem on the final day of proceedings, during which they aimed to persuade the state prosecution to close the cases against the prime minister.

Monday's hearing focused on Case 1000, in which Netanyahu is suspected of illicitly receiving gifts such as champagne, cigars and jewelry valued at some NIS 700,000 ($201,000) from billionaire benefactors Arnon Milchan and James Packer, and allegedly reciprocating in Milchan's case with various forms of assistance.

Netanyahu faces charges of fraud and breach of trust in Case 1000, as he does in the other two cases against him, Cases 2000 and 4000. In Case 4000, he also faces a bribery charge.

Amid a surge in antisemitic attacks in New York City, worshipers attending Yom Kippur services on Tuesday night and Wednesday will be protected by an increased police presence, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo confirmed on Monday.

Cuomo said the increased presence would be deployed in time for the Kol Nidrei services that usher in the holiest day of the year for Jews.

"As members of the Jewish community gather Tuesday evening to begin the observance of Yom Kippur, I am directing the State Police to increase patrols around Synagogues and religious centers to ensure this sacred day is not disturbed by anyone seeking to spread division or fear," Cuomo said.

The Daily Brief

1. Lindsey Graham threatens bipartisan sanctions and NATO suspension if Turkey invades Syria and attacks Kurds - Washington Examiner

Sen. Lindsey Graham and Sen. Chris Van Hollen will introduce bipartisan sanctions against Turkey if the country invades Syria and will call to suspend Turkey's membership in the North Atlantic Treaty Organization if it attacks Kurdish forces there.

The news adds to pressure by some in Trump's own party against the Sunday announcement that the United States would be moving troops out of northern Syria to let Turkey go forward with a "long-planned operation." Graham, a hawkish politician who typically supports Trump, said Monday on Fox News that he "absolutely" didn't agree with the president's decision. Kurdish YPG fighters will likely be targeted by Turkey, which considers them terrorists.

There is concern that the decision could bend Kurdish support toward Damascus, which is supported by the likes of Russia and Iran. There is also worry that the move could allow ISIS to resurge in the region after the destruction of most of the terror group's territorial holdings. (Read more)

2. Europe Won't Help, and We're Not Going to Hold Thousands of ISIS Fighters at Guantanamo Bay - CNS News

The United States for months has been urging European countries to repatriate captured ISIS fighters and their families from northeastern Syria, to no avail, and the U.S. is not about to incarcerate them in Guantanamo Bay, President Trump said on Monday.

"We're not bringing 50, 60, 70 - or even 10,000 people to Guantanamo Bay in Cuba," Trump told reporters at the White House. "We're not going to be paying them for the next 50 years - or paying to take care of them for the next 50 years."

"Repatriating these foreign terrorist fighters to their countries of origin, ensuring that they are prosecuted and detained - that's the best solution to preventing them from returning to the battlefield," the State Department said in February. "We view these fighters as a global threat and we seek global cooperation to resolve that threat." (Read more)

3. Trump administration blocks ambassador from testifying in House impeachment deposition - FoxNews

The Trump administration ordered the U.S. ambassador to the European Union not to appear at a scheduled Tuesday deposition on the Ukraine controversy, triggering a fiery new clash with House Democrats amid their impeachment inquiry.

President Trump dismissed the deposition as a "kangaroo court" as he defended the decision to block Gordon Sondland from appearing at the closed-door session on Capitol Hill.

But the move, first reported by the New York Times, prompted new warnings from Democrats that such acts will be seen as an obstruction of their investigation into the controversy surrounding Trump's July 25 phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. (Read more)

- Father God, we pray for an end to the abuse and misuse of power by the Democrats in Congress.

- Those who want to kill me set their traps, those who would harm me talk of my ruin; all day long they scheme and lie. (Psalm 38:12)

4. White House announces it will not comply with 'illegitimate and unconstitutional' impeachment inquiry - Fox News

The White House first noted in the letter that there has not been a formal vote in the House to open an impeachment inquiry -- and that the news conference held by Pelosi last month was insufficient to commence the proceedings.

Trump administration officials called the letter, which was written by White House counsel Pat Cipollone and obtained by Fox News, perhaps the most historic letter the White House has sent. "President Trump and his administration reject your baseless, unconstitutional efforts to overturn the democratic process," the letter stated. "Your unprecedented actions have left the president with no choice. In order to fulfill his duties to the American people, the Constitution, the Executive Branch, and all future occupants of the Office of the Presidency, President Trump and his administration cannot participate in your partisan and unconstitutional inquiry under these circumstances."

The document concluded: "The president has a country to lead. The American people elected him to do this job, and he remains focused on fulfilling his promises to the American people." (Read more)

- Father God, we pray President Trump will be successful in protecting the Executive Branch from unconstitutional action by the House of Representatives.

- Lord, do not forsake me; do not be far from me, my God. Come quickly to help me, my Lord and my Savior. (Psalm 38:21-22)

5. U.S. Supreme Court kicks off new term, with Justice Thomas absent - Reuters

The U.S. Supreme Court kicked off its new nine-month term with a flurry of activity on Monday, hearing arguments in three cases including one involving the insanity defense and rejecting numerous business-related appeals that piled up over the summer. Justice Clarence Thomas, 71, was absent due to illness. Thomas likely has the flu, a court spokeswoman said. One of the nine-member court's most conservative members, Thomas has served since 1991 and is its longest-serving justice.

In remarks from the bench before the first argument, Chief Justice John Roberts said Thomas was "indisposed" due to illness but would still participate in deciding the cases. (Read more)

- Father, we lift up Justice Thomas to You and ask for his full recovery.

- With long life I will satisfy him and show him my salvation. (Psalm 91:16)

6. Supreme Court to Decide if Men Who Dress Like Women, Homosexuals Can Be Fired From Workplace - Christian News

In a substantial legal challenge, which has been called "bigger than gay marriage," the U.S. Supreme Court [heard] two hours of argument relating to three different lawsuits.

The cases surround claims of alleged sex discrimination in the workplace, which will result in a final determination by the country's highest court on whether or not people who identify as "gay" or "transgender" are protected under the Civil Rights Act of 1964 from being fired.

The Act for most of its existence was not interpreted to include protections based on sexual orientation and identity issues until subsequent court rulings and Supreme Court precedents have reinterpreted what discrimination is based on sex, leaving conflict among the courts. This has led to the Supreme Court taking on matter to make a final determination. (Read more)

7. Trump Administration Asks for Comments on Child Sex Trafficking in Foster Care System - Epoch Times

President Donald Trump's Family First Prevention and Services Act, which eliminates some financial incentives for removing children from their biological families, went into effect on October 1.

The Department of Health and Human Services confirms that it is discussing the role foster care plays in the child sex trafficking problem in the United States. The State Department's 2019 human trafficking report stated that "in the United States, traffickers prey upon children in the foster care system."

"This is where the majority of your trafficking victims come from. When wrongdoing is proven by way of these state courts and administrative agencies, there is then no recourse for the victims.(Read more)

- Father, it is hard to imagine the very people we trust to care for the most vulnerable and abused children, in turn are also abusing them. We pray each person who has betrayed our trust and harmed a child or family will be held fully responsible for their actions.

- But whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in Me to sin, it would be better for him if a millstone were hung around his neck, and he were drowned in the depth of the sea. (Matthew 18:6)

8. STDs Combine for Record High in U.S. - US News & World Report

Cases of three common sexually transmitted diseases in the U.S. reached a record level in 2018, according to a new report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Gonorrhea and cases of primary and secondary syphilis - the disease's most infectious stages - nearly two-thirds of which were among people 15 to 24 years old.

Together, the diseases accounted for more than 2.4 million cases - an all-time high since data on all three conditions was first collected in 1984.Syphilis, gonorrhea and chlamydia can have serious consequences if left unchecked, including infertility and death, but are treatable through antibiotics.

Rates of syphilis, chlamydia and gonorrhea rose among both males and females, all racial and ethnic groups and across the U.S., and that sustained efforts among public health and health care systems are needed to curb the rates. "This is affecting the health of our nation," Bolan says. (Read more)

- Father God, we repent of sexual immorality! Deliver us from this scourge so that we can have the healthy families You desire for us.

- Praise the Lord, my soul, and forget not all his benefits-who forgives all your sins and heals all your diseases, who redeems your life from the pit and crowns you with love and compassion (Psalm 103:2-4)

9. Chicago Police Officers Told Not To Cooperate With DHS On Immigration Issues - Daily Wire

Police in Chicago were warned not to cooperate with the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) on issues of immigration. The CPD [said] law enforcement would assist a federal agent who is in danger but would not assist in the arrest. Instead, they will "advise and leave the scene."

Chicago is one of at least 36 sanctuary cities in the United States that refuse to cooperate with Immigration and Customs Enforcement, an agency within DHS. In addition to dozens of cities, whole counties and states are also considered to be sanctuaries for illegal immigrants.

DHS is deeply concerned with the dangerous anti-law enforcement direction given by the leadership of the Chicago Police Department. The men and women of ICE put their lives on the line every day to protect the citizens of this country from dangerous criminals," the spokesperson told the outlet. "Failing to support fellow law enforcement officers upon request for assistance not only places our heroic police officers in greater danger but keeps criminals on the streets and makes all of our communities less safe, specifically the great City of Chicago."(Read more)

- Father God, we pray for the people of Chicago to reject lawlessness and embrace law, order and righteousness.

- The Lord detests the way of the wicked, but he loves those who pursue righteousness. (Proverbs 15:9)

Tennessee Gov. Bill Lee recently issued a proclamation declaring [Thursday] Oct. 10 as a voluntary "Day of Prayer, Humility, and Fasting."

"We know that prayer accomplishes much," he said. "Prayer strengthens our families and it strengthens our communities. It strengthens our relationship with our neighbors. It strengthens our relationship with God himself."

Trump Turkey decision advances prophecy clock

President Donald Trump's agreement to allow Turkey to invade Northern Syria endangers the lives of Kurdish allies, Christians in the area, and advances the prophecy clock. This is a foreign policy decision where withdrawing American troops in the area could very well allow the mass genocide of Kurds who loyally supported the US in the fight against ISIS. Turkey long has wanted to attack the Kurds in Syria, which Turkish dictator "president" Tecep Tayyip Erdogan believes pose a threat to Turkey's national security. Iran also seeks to control the Kurds. This foreign policy decision by the US president has the makings of converging Iran and Turkey into a conflict that has massive end-time implications.
According to sources with knowledge of the situation, Iran has made incredible advances toward controlling the Middle East in Syria, Iraq, Kurdistan, and Lebanon. In Daniel 8:19, 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.
Turkey also has been making moves to cement power over the Middle East. In January, after the US announced it was pulling out of Syria, Erdogan met with Russian President Vladimir Putin. Russia supports Iran. Syria is a vassal state of Iran. A 1998 agreement between Russia and Turkey, according to Bloomberg, "states that Syria won't permit any activity on its territory that would jeopardize Turkey's security." Putin was leveraging the 1998 agreement to say that Syria will take care of the Kurds in Syrian territory, hoping that Turkey will restore ties with Syria. Prophecy will eventually bring clarity to this complex situation, and it appears that the US president is accelerating that clarity.
Ezekiel 38 says that in the end of days, God will put a hook in Gog of Magog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal (all in Turkey), to lead 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. This action by the US president not only appears to open the door to possible genocide of Kurds and Christians in Northern Syria, but also advances the prophecy clock by bringing the ram and goat of Daniel 8 into closer orbit. The move by Trump is perplexing because the Kurds, even more than Turkey, have fought against ISIS in Syria. There may be an Ezekiel 38 "hook" in Trump's nose leading into these end-time events. Watch and pray.

The President's Decision

Syria's Tree of Liberty in Danger

October 8, 2019

By Tony Perkins

A virtual "tree of liberty" in the Middle East in Syria is in danger today, as the Trump administration prepares to pull out of a region at the border of Turkey and northeast Syria that is both friendly to U.S. interests and respectful of genuine religious freedom. As we have previously discussed, "It is an oft-overlooked story that in the wake of ISIS's genocide, the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces established a semi-autonomous area in northeast Syria in which religious freedom flourished and religious minorities were protected. Pluralism thrived and democracy began to gain a foothold." And in that oasis of freedom, Christians and other people of faith found refuge, but now they face possible annihilation as U.S. forces prepare to leave, and Turkey plans to invade.

This announced withdrawal of the U.S. forces in the area has drawn wide-spread opposition and concern. Politico reports that Senate GOP leaders are urging the president to reconsider, noting "(i)n February, 70 senators supported a nonbinding amendment backing U.S. operations in both Syria and Afghanistan."

On Monday's Washington Watch I spoke with Chris Mitchell, Middle East bureau chief for CBN News in Jerusalem, who reported that Kurds in that region, who have protected Christians, "are feeling terrified that they're going to be the victims, especially of these jihadist groups that are allied with the Turkish army. I've been hearing that they're amassing on the borders even right now."

When Turkey was last in the region in March of 2018, the Turkish army and their allies "burned churches, they killed Christians, they hunted down Christians. And they ethnically cleansed that city of Kurds, hundreds of thousands of Kurds," noted Mitchell.

Faced with such a threat, the regional government may be forced to make a dangerous alliance. Mitchell noted that the relatively free region may feel forced to make an alliance with Syrian President Bashar al-Assad rather than face the wrath of Turkey's President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, who is known to hate the Kurds. But the alliance with Assad would most likely bring Russian and Iranian forces into Northeast Syria.

"(G)eopolitically, it could be a catastrophe if Turkey comes in and this whole area may be given back to the Assad regime," Mitchell reported.

Lieutenant General Jerry Boykin, who also joined Washington Watch yesterday, agreed with Mitchell's assessment and added that such a change also puts another key ally in the region at risk -- Israel.

Those moving into the region with Turkey want to "destroy Israel, to wipe Israel off the map," Boykin said. And if they can take that area "that's the land bridge" Iran needs to reach to the Mediterranean Sea and ultimately Israel.

"This is a bad situation emerging here, and what I am really afraid of is that you're going to see such a shift in the balance of power in that whole part of the world as a result of this, because you bring Russia, Iran and the government of Bashar al-Assad together there and the country of Syria. And what does that portend for the future? It portends a huge threat to Israel, but it is also potentially a huge threat to the rest of the Middle East," the general observed.

Also joining me on the radio show, Travis Weber, FRC's Director of the Center for Religious Liberty and Vice President of Policy, explained why this Middle East conflict affects Americans here at home.

"The reason we're interested in it is the same reason we ultimately care about religious freedom here at home," he said. "We want to advocate for the right of every person to live out their faith free, without fear of repercussion, by the government, (or) by social forces in society."

The people in the Middle East, facing Turkey's military might are "not asking for us to do this for them," to fight their battle or win their war, said Weber, "They're just saying, can you support us? And I'm looking at them thinking these are natural allies for the United States."

Please join us in praying for President Trump to make the right decisions, and for the Christians and others in the region. (FRC) To read this article, go here.

Classic Hymns


"They urged Him strongly, "Stay with us, for it is nearly evening; the day is almost over."" (Luke 24:29)


Abide with me! Fast falls the eventide; The darkness thickens. Lord with me abide. When other helpers fail, and comforts flee, Help of the helpless, O abide with me!

Swift to its close ebbs out life's little day; Earth's joys grow dim, its glories pass away; Change and decay in all around I see; O Thou who changest not, abide with me!

Not a brief glance I beg, a passing word; But as Thou dwell'st with Thy disciples, Lord, Familiar, condescending, patient, free. Come, not to sojourn, but abide with me.

Come not in terrors, as the King of kings, But kind and good, with healing in Thy wings, Tears for all woes, a heart for every plea, Come, friend of sinners, and abide with me.

Thou on my head in early youth didst smile; And though rebellious and perverse meanwhile, Thou hast not left me, oft as I left Thee, On to the close, O Lord, abide with me!

I need Thy presence every passing hour. What but Thy grace can foil the tempter's power? Who like Thyself my guide and stay can be? Through cloud and sunshine, O abide with me!

I fear no foe with Thee at hand to bless: Ills have no weight, and tears no bitterness. Where is death's sting? Where, grave, thy victory? I triumph still, if Thou abide with me.

Hold Thou Thy cross before my closing eyes; Shine through the gloom and, point me to the skies; Heav'n's morning breaks, and earth's vain shadows flee: In life, in death, O Lord, abide with me!

Rising Lakes Threaten Orlando-Area Community,
and Nobody Knows Why It's Happening

- Several lakes in the area are overflowing onto adjacent property.

- At least three residents have been forced out of their homes due to the flooding.

- It's not clear what's causing the water to rise.

Paul DeHart and his wife bought what seemed like a dream home in 2017, situated on a 4.5-acre picturesque lakefront lot outside of Orlando, Florida. Even better for Florida, the home wasn't in a designated flood zone.

Two years later, the dream has turned to a nightmare as rising water from the lake inundates their land and moves dangerously close to their home and others in the neighborhood.

DeHart estimates he's lost about two acres of his property to the water so far. Others have had it worse. "We have two neighbors right next to us that are underwater and they've had to leave their homes," DeHart told Tuesday.

A third nearby resident, affected by a different body of water that is also flooding, has also had to move.

DeHart and his neighbors live in the small community of Gotha, about 11 miles west of downtown Orlando. Much of Central Florida is dotted with lakes and ponds, and Gotha is no different.

DeHart estimates the water has risen about 15 feet on Lake Nally, adjacent to where his home sits, since he bought the property. Fischer Lake, also nearby, and two large ponds in the community have the same problem, he said.

DeHart said he and others have repeatedly contacted Orange County officials who have told them that Lake Nally is private property and therefore not the responsibility of local government. In recent weeks, the county has expressed an interest in working with homeowners on a solution.

The Orange County Property Appraiser's Office said this week that research shows the lake is jointly owned by several entities, including residents and the Orange County Board of County Commissioners, the Orlando Sentinel reported.

. . . Meanwhile, there's been so much water across DeHart's driveway - as much as 2 feet - that the U.S. Postal Service won't bring them their mail anymore. (Read more)
