Urgent News! (2)

NEW 1:
Dear Friend,

The threat posed to Israel by the demand for a Palestinian state is much worse than what is being reported by the news media. The actual submission for statehood that was presented to the UN last week does not reference the 1967 borders (which would be a disaster for Israel)…instead it references the 1948 borders. This would force Israel to relocate millions of its citizens, give up the airport at Tel Aviv, and of course, surrender complete control of all of Jerusalem.

But even that is not the Palestinians’ true intention. Take a look at the logo below from the official Palestinian mission to the United Nations. Look carefully at the green area in the center of the page—it includes ALL of Israel. The enemies of the Jewish state will never rest until Israel is destroyed. They may make promises of peace in exchange for some land now, but it is only a ploy to give them time to get what they truly want.

It is vitally important that we stand with Israel right now. We must continue to alert Believers around the world to the danger Israel faces, and we must continue to show the Jewish people the love of God.

In two weeks, Jews across Israel will begin celebrating the Feast of Sukkot. During this harvest festival, many people sleep in small booths to remember the wandering of the Chosen People through the Wilderness...and they celebrate with feasting for a full week...but for hungry Jewish children in Israel, this is no time of joy.

Instead they wonder why they have to go to bed hungry every night...why their friends come to school talking about special meals and fun things to eat...why they are left out. Poverty and hunger are very real threats to Jewish children today, as well as to many elderly Holocaust survivors.

As a young Jewish child, I lived in poverty in the projects.  I would go to the dump to look for food.  I had a stick to dig through the garbage and fight off the rats that were competing with me for the food.  I know firsthand how painful it is to go to bed hungry.  I will never forget the pit the Lord lifted me out of—thus the reason I care so very much for the suffering, impoverished, and forgotten Jewish refugees in Israel.  Jesus said, “I was hungry and you fed Me...what you do for the least of these you have done for Me.”

Today I'm asking you to help provide special Sukkot meals for poor families in Israel. We can turn their hunger and sadness into joy and celebration. We can help make this special time of year happy and meaningful for the poor and hungry of Israel. We can reach out to them in the love of God.

The prophet Isaiah cried out, “Comfort ye, comfort ye my people saith your God” (Isaiah 40:1). The poor of Israel are in great need of our help today. We cannot turn away. We cannot ignore their cries. We must not turn our backs on the poor of Israel, especially at this moment when so much of the world is shunning the Jewish state. Hear the words of the Lord:

Deliver those who are drawn toward death, and hold back those stumbling to the slaughter. If you say, “Surely we did not know this,” Does not He who weighs the hearts consider it? He who keeps your soul, does He not know it? And will He not render to each man according to his deeds? (Proverbs 24:11&12)

God sees your efforts to care for the poor and needy among the Chosen People. When the Children of Israel came before the Lord to celebrate Sukkot, they brought their offerings. Today I'm asking you to send a special, sacrificial Sukkot offering so that we can share the blessings God has given us with hungry Jews in Israel.
When you send your gift to help the Jerusalem Prayer Team feed poor Jews in Israel, we will send you a beautiful set of “Comfort ye my people” note cards with envelopes. If you are able to send a gift of $100 or more, we will send you the note cards along with a lovely “Comfort ye my people” afghan. They will be a constant reminder of your love for poor and hungry of Israel...and the protection and provision of God for His people.

The Jewish people need our help right now as they are isolated and threatened on every side. Every Jew living in Israel knows where the nearest bomb shelter is and lives with the daily reality that an attack could come at any moment, leaving them just seconds to seek shelter. The boycott of Israeli products has crippled Israel’s economy, greatly increasing the cost of living and leaving many struggling just to find enough food to eat.

Your financial support makes it possible for the Jerusalem Prayer Team to continue to raise a shield of prayer over the land of Israel, as well as meet the urgent humanitarian needs of poor and hungry Jews. Thank you so much for being part of this unique and powerful worldwide prayer movement. God bless you.

Your ambassador to Jerusalem,

Dr. Michael Evans

Maoz Partners and Precious Friends,
Abbas in the UNThis is an urgent prayer request.  In order for a Palestinian state to come into being, it must get nine votes out of 15 in the Security Council.  Secondly the resolution must not be vetoed by any of the five permanent members - the U.S., Britain, France, China and Russia.
The U.S. has declared that it will veto such a resolution if nine or more members vote for a Palestinian state.  It will be much better for the U.S. if there are less than nine votes - as the the U.S. would then not have to use its veto - which will further alienate the Arab and Moslem world.
So far, these nations have declared they will vote for a Palestinian state:  China, Russia, Brazil, India, Lebanon, South Africa.  Now Nigeria and Gabon have just announced they too will vote for a Palestinian state.  That makes eight states.  The nations that have said they will vote against the UN declaring such a state are the U.S., Britain, France, GermanyThat leaves three states: Bosnia, Colombia and Portugal undecided.  If the Palestinians can get one of those three to vote for them, they will have the nine votes - a serious blow to the U.S. and Israel, and the Western countries.
When we see these close battles - where one or two votes could change history - we can know there is a fierce battle in the heavenlies.  And we are commanded of God to stand in the gap.  We can have a part in God's purposes by praying His Will be done.  And we know in this issue from hundreds of Bible verses that God has given this land to Israel.
Please pray specifically that Bosnia, Colombia and Portugal will NOT vote for a Palestinian state.
This is not only a serious issue for the West and for Israel.  There have been prophetic voices saying that the nations that vote AGAINST ISRAEL will go into deeper economic problems and chaos in their countries.  Those who vote FOR ISRAEL will have some economic problems, but will then, by the grace of God, pull out of it.
No one knows when the vote will take place in the Security Council.  It could be a matter of days or weeks.

I'm not just writing right now about our effort to protect and defend Israel. Instead, I want to talk to you about my campaign to keep fighting for our shared values in Congress. We're facing a critical financial reporting deadline tonight at midnight and I need help from supporters like you to file a strong report next week.
I’ve stood with Israel. Now, stand with me so I can keep up the fight for Israel! Pitch in $5 or more to support my re-election right now!
I won't sugar coat it: the same radicals who want to circumvent the peace process would like nothing more than to defeat me next November. They're unhappy that I've been such a vocal supporter of Israel – and are looking to take me out.
It's something we need to be prepared for; but I want you to know that I won't ever back down from my commitment to Israeli security. I will continue pushing my bill in Congress to defund military support for those who vote in favor of the UN resolution prematurely recognizing Palestinian statehood and I will continue opposing them no matter what attacks they hurl over the next year. But I need help from friends like you to make sure our campaign can fight back!
There are just a few hours left to make a real difference before the financial deadline expires tonight and we're very close to breaking our $5,000 online goal. Contribute $5 or more right now to stand with me:
If you've ever thought about making a contribution to support our campaign, this is the perfect time.
Let's show the radical forces trying to cause chaos in the middle east that we stand strong in support of Israel.
Thank you for standing with me and L'shanah tovah,

NEW 4:
Earlier tonight (Thursday), a rocket fired from the Gaza Strip hit the Sha’ar Hanegev Regional Council, causing damage to an abandoned building. In response, an IAF aircraft targeted a terror activity site in the central Gaza Strip overnight. A direct hit was confirmed.
The IDF will not tolerate any attempt to harm Israeli civilians and IDF soldiers and will continue to operate against any element that uses terror against the State of Israel. The IDF holds the Hamas terrorist organization solely responsible for any terrorist activity emanating from the Gaza Strip.


NEW 5:
A Jewish cosmetic company, AHAVA, has been forced to shut the doors on their London store after pressure from pro-Palestinian groups – and Glenn has decided he has had enough. While Glenn has not called for a boycott on companies he’s disagreed with – despite what the media has reported about his distaste for Levi’s progressive campaign – he is now calling for his audience to support business that do share the values that Glenn and his listeners feel are important.
The Blaze reports “Boycotters of Israeli products won a round after a two-year harassment campaign in London. AHAVA, the Israeli Dead Sea minerals cosmetics company, announced it closed one of its London stores this weekend.”
The Blaze continues to say that while the store had a loyal customer base it had become the center of mass Pro-Palestinian protests.
“Since 2009, pro-Palestinian activists have been gathering on weekends outside the store, harassing customers and employees. The protesters allege their problem with the company is it being based in Mitzpe Shalem, what they consider ‘an illegal and criminal settlement in the occupied territories.’ Protesters also consider the Dead Sea to be “disputed territory” even though a large swath of its shoreline is not even situated in the West Bank, rather in pre-1967 Israel,” The Blaze continues.
While Glenn said he didn’t enjoy the Dead Sea (too hot, too oily, not refreshing, too muddy, blahblahblah), he pointed out that AHAVA has found a way to really use the sea to make some amazing products. “They have found a use for it and it’s these Dead Sea products, and my wife uses them and she has really delicate skin and, you know, she really has to take care of her skin. And they are really good products,” Glenn said.
Glenn really took issue with Code Pink’s reaction to the store closing, and their website said “The above images are the end result of a successful campaign to cleanse London’s Monmouth Street of Ahava, a notorious retailer of Dead Sea beauty products made from natural resources plundered from the Palestinian people and manufactured on an illegal West Bank settlement.”
“ (Plundered) from a territory that never belonged to them,” Pat said of the Palestinian’s claim to the land.
Glenn emphasized that AHAVA was not an advertiser on any of his programs, “I’ve been a purchaser of their products. They’re not a purchaser of mine. Do it because it’s the right thing.”
“You know, I told you about Levis, that ad that came out on Levis that is, you know, Levis says they want to be the they want to be the product or the uniform of progress? They’re showing revolutions, scenes from revolutions in their commercials and they’re extolling it: Hey, never sit down. Never sit down. Really? No thank you, Levis. I’m a huge fan of your product. No thank you,” Glenn said.
“The same thing happened with General Motors. No thank you, General Motors. No thank you.”
“I could be the boycott guy, which I never have. I’ve never told you to turn off Keith Olbermann. He did that himself. I never told you don’t buy a product, don’t do this.”
“It’s your decision. I don’t want to put anybody out of business. They will put themselves out of business,” Glenn said.
“I am not going to put my money in any company anymore, if I can help it, that doesn’t stand for what I stand for. I’m going to look for, instead of saying I’m going to take my money out of here, I’m going to start looking for companies that actually stand for something. That actually believe in the same things that I do. That are small companies that want to get started,” Glenn said.
