Delegates applaused as UNESCO voted to give Palestine membership. (RT)
Palestine won full admission into UNESCO, the United Nations science, education and cultural heritage organization, in a closely watched vote in Paris Monday. Global diplomacy hands view the 107-14 vote as a benchmark carrying larger implications for the Palestinians' bid for state recognition before the UN Security Council. Both the United States and Israel have strongly opposed both initiatives. The United States, Israel, Canada, Germany, Sweden and Australia were among the 14 nations voting against the Palestinians' UNESCO bid, while 107 countries--including France, Spain, Ireland, Austria, Belgium, Brazil, India, Russia, China, South Africa and Indonesia--voted in favor. Fourteen nations--including the United Kingdom and Italy--abstained.
Washington, which called the UNESCO vote "premature" Monday, has threatened to cut off funding to UNESCO if Palestine is granted membership. The United States currently accounts for about one-fifth of the organization's budget.
Israel's Ministry of Foreign Affairs also rejected the UNESCO vote, and warned it would set back peace process.
"This is a unilateral Palestinian maneuver which will bring no change on the ground but further removes the possibility for a peace agreement," the Israeli ministry said in a statement.  "This decision will not turn the Palestinian Authority into an actual state yet places unnecessary burdens on the route to renewing negotiations."
Palestine's successful UNESCO bid comes as Middle East Quartet envoy Tony Blair is due to meet with U.S. President Barack Obama at the White House Monday.
Blair has been trying to advance the Quartet's efforts to get the Israelis and Palestinians back to the negotiating table, asking each side to lay out their specific terms for resolving the issues of borders and security for a two-state solution. Meanwhile, Israeli officials have been depicting Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas as an unworthy peace partner.
Abbas, in turn, has recently reiterated his periodic threat to dissolve the Palestinian Authority--a move that if carried out would presumably give Israel the burden of administering, funding, and coordinating security for the West Bank's Palestinian population.
PARIS (AP) — Palestine won its greatest international endorsement yet on Monday, full membership in UNESCO, but the move will cost the agency one-fifth of its funding and some fear will send Mideast peace efforts off a cliff.
In an unusually dramatic session at the Paris-based United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization, there were cheers for "yes" votes and grumbles for the "no's" and abstentions. When the results were in, many delegates jumped to their feet and applauded and someone let out a cry of "Long live Palestine!" in French.
"Joy fills my heart. This is really a historic moment," said Palestinian Foreign Minister Riad Malki. "It's the return of he who was banished."
But the jubilation was quickly pierced by reality: The United States said it wouldn't make a $60 million payment to fill out its contributions for this year and would suspend all future funding.
UNESCO depends heavily on that money — Washington provides 22 percent of its budget — but has survived without it in the past: The United States pulled out of UNESCO under President Ronald Reagan, rejoining two decades later under President George W. Bush.
Monday's vote was a grand symbolic victory for the Palestinians, but it alone won't make Palestine a state. The issues of borders for an eventual Palestinian state, security, a solution for Palestinian refugees, the fate of Jerusalem and other disputes that have thwarted Middle East peace for decades remain unresolved. Some argued it would even make it harder for the Palestinians to reach their goal.
White House spokesman Jay Carney called UNESCO's decision "premature" and said it undermines the international community's efforts toward a comprehensive Middle East peace plan. He called it a distraction from the goal of restarting direct negotiations between Israel and the Palestinians.
Israeli Ambassador Nimrod Barkan said the decision did "a great disservice to international law and to chances for peace."
"UNESCO deals in science, not science fiction," he said in a speech to delegates after the vote. "However, a large number of member states, though most emphatically less than two-thirds of the member states of this organization, have adopted a science fiction version of reality."
His government said it was reconsidering its cooperation with UNESCO.
The request to grant Palestine full membership passed 107-14, with 52 abstentions. Eighty-one votes were needed for approval — or two-thirds of the 173 eligible member delegations present. There are now 195 members in all.
In a surprise, France voted "yes" — and the room erupted in cheers. It was joined by Ireland, Austria and the Arab states. The "no" votes included the United States, Israel, Sweden, the Netherlands and Germany, while many American allies abstained, including Japan, Britain and New Zealand.
Monday's vote is definitive, and the membership formally takes effect when Palestine signs UNESCO's founding charter.
It is part of a broader Palestinian quest for greater international recognition in hopes of moving closer to statehood through channels other than simply negotiations with Israel.
There, however, are concerns that strategy could backfire. Before the vote, Israel's outspoken foreign minister, Avigdor Lieberman, said that if the measure passed, Israel should cut off ties with the Palestinian Authority. It was not clear whether he was voicing government policy.
By contrast, Malki said he hoped the vote would only provide momentum for the Palestinians' quest for statehood. But he added that it was no substitute for the Palestinians' more high-profile request for admission to the United Nations.
The Obama administration has vowed to use its veto power in the Security Council to quash Palestinian membership in the broader U.N., but had been hoping it wouldn't come to that since wielding its veto could undermine the United States' typically pivotal role as negotiator between Israel and the Palestinians.
However, Malki, indicated Monday that he thought he had enough support to win a Security Council vote, which has not yet been scheduled.
UNESCO, like many U.N. agencies, is a part of the world body but has separate membership procedures and can make its own decisions about which countries belong. The disconnect between memberships is rare but not unprecedented. Two tiny Pacific island nations — the Cook Islands and Niue — are members of UNESCO but not the U.N., while Liechtenstein belongs to the larger world body but not the cultural agency.
Even if the vote's impact isn't felt right away in the Mideast, it will be quickly felt at UNESCO, which protects historic heritage sites and works to improve world literacy, access to schooling for girls and cultural understanding. One of the first concrete results of Palestine's membership could be that the Church of the Nativity in Bethlehem is listed as a world heritage site; the Palestinians have already prepared an application for the traditional birthplace of Jesus.
In addition to the reduction in funding, the vote will also set back UNESCO's efforts in recent years to shed its image as an anti-Israeli agency. When the U.S. pulled out of UNESCO in the 1980s, it was to protest the passage of a resolution equating Zionism with racism.
UNESCO Director-General Irina Bokova has been at the forefront of remaking the agency's image, and she expressed concern about the vote's effect.
"It is my responsibility to say that I am concerned by the potential challenges that may arise to the universality and financial stability of the organization," Bokova said. "I am worried we may confront a situation that could erode UNESCO as a universal platform for dialogue. I am worried for the stability of its budget."
While the U.S. has cut off funding — which typically amounts to $80 million annually — Washington has said it will remain a member, though if it fails to pay its dues for two years, it will lose its vote.
U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said it was up to member states "to ensure the United Nations system as a whole consistent political and financial support."
"As such, we will need to work on tactical solutions to preserve UNESCO's financial resources," he said, while urging a negotiated solution to Mideast peace.
Klapper reported from Washington. Associated Press writers Angela Charlton in Paris, Dalia Nammari in Ramallah, Edith Lederer at the United Nations and Joe Federman in Jerusalem contributed.

   Following two prisoner-swap deals, the Palestinians are now demanding the release of more terrorists before they will consider returning to negotiations with Israel. Turkey is saying that despite the help Israel sent after the earthquake there will be no warming up of the relationship between the two countries. After many days of silence, Hamas terrorists in Gaza launched a Grad rocket into Israel. These are just some of the news stories from the last couple of days, and this is exactly why we are in Israel. Israel without her God is helpless, hopeless, and has no future. But the Bible promises for Israel (and the world) after our nation recognizes Messiah Yeshua are glorious! We rejoice in the opportunities God is providing us to reach our fellow countrymen through your help!
Ari & Shira 2010 220   Both Ari and Shira were born in the month of October. But while we will not be revealing Shira's young age, we can tell you that Ari is turning 70 years young this year!

0610-Prayer for Soldiers   Every Saturday our congregation Tiferet Yeshua in Tel Aviv prays for our soldiers. This includes soldiers from our congregation, all believing soldiers in the country, and the entire IDF. We pray for protection, guidance, salvation...
   For almost five-and-a-half years our congregation has been faithfully praying for one specific soldier - Gilad Shalit - who was in Hamas captivity in Gaza. Just over a week ago we saw the answer to our prayers when Gilad came home!
   We thought this would be a great place to thank our faithful God for answering our prayers and the prayers of all Israel (and yours, of course!) and returning this soldier home to his family and his country.
   We rejoice with the Shalit family, and continue praying for Gilad's complete healing and salvation for him and his family.
The Stand UK   This October Shira had an opportunity to speak at several venues in the U.K., including a live interview on Revelation TV. She spoke on one of her favorite subjects - the importance of Israel in the last days.
   It is always a wonderful opportunity to speak to people who know little about Israel, as well as to those who love and support Israel.
   Also this month, our co-laborer, Ron Cantor, addressed the student body at Christ For the Nations Institute in Dallas, Texas during the annual "Bless Israel Day." The importance of imparting the knowledge and love for Israel to these students is beyond measure.
   In November, Shira will be traveling to Dallas where she will be the featured speaker during the morning chapel each day at Christ for the Nations Institute.

Jim & Barbara Morrison   This month we said goodbye and said hello.
   Jim and Barbara Morrison from our Maoz office in the U.S., with close to 30 years of service with Maoz between them, retired last week.
   Jim is responsible for organizing the "LORD, Help Israel!" daily prayer that now has over 1,200 people who signed up to pray on the "LORD, Help Israel!" website and over 500 followers on our "LORD, Help Israel!" Facebook page.
   Barbara has been the USA office coordinator for many years, and so many of our partnerss will miss her!
   We thank them for their faithful service and love for this ministry and wish them all the best! We will miss you!
   Our office in Israel - specifically the Media Department - has welcomed two new workers this month - a new video editor and new video department manager.
   We thank God for providing these key people for our ministry and welcome them both to the team!

A tour of Jerusalem, mostly the Old City and it's surroundings.

Psalms 122:
I was glad when they said unto me, Let us go unto the house of Jehovah.
Our feet are standing Within thy gates, O Jerusalem,
Jerusalem, that art build As a city that is compact together;
Whither the tribes go up, even the tribes of Jehovah, [For] an ordinance for Israel, To give thanks unto the name of Jehovah.
For there are set thrones for judgment, The thrones of the house of David.
Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: They shall prosper that love thee.
Peace be within thy walls, And prosperity within thy palaces.
For my brethren and companions' sakes, I will now say, Peace be within thee.
For the sake of the house of Jehovah our God I will seek thy good.

Feed the hungry and help those in trouble...
There are thousands of impoverished Jewish children living in desperate, life-threatening situations throughout the former Soviet Union right now.
Children like Shirin, and her little sister, Birjakhanim.
These two girls live in the former Soviet Republic of Azerbaijan, where they suffer a depth of heartrending poverty that is impossible to imagine.  Their clothes are threadbare, their shoes have holes, and painful hunger is a daily reality.
It wasn’t until I saw it with my own eyes that I truly understood how urgently the children of this region need our help.
For Shirin, home is a crowded, damp apartment with no heating.  Her bed is a dirty old mattress in the corner of a bedroom.  Work here is almost impossible to come by, thanks to the all-pervading anti-Semitism of the region.
Without help from IFCJ’s Isaiah 58 program — and donors like you — Shirin and Birjakhanim’s parents could not provide their children with basic necessities, such as warm clothes, nor heat their small home.
As winter bears down on the former Soviet Union, I ask generous friends like you to please donate to Isaiah 58 today, and help IFCJ provide winter relief, food and warm clothing to these needy children.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your concern for Shirin, Birjakhanim and other similarly destitute Jewish children worldwide.
With prayers for shalom, peace,
Rabbi Sig
Rabbi Yechiel Eckstein
There are so many Jewish children in the former Soviet Union who urgently need our help.  Many have been orphaned or abandoned and suffer from malnutrition and abuse as they live on the streets.

Those Who Embrace Life – and Those Who Celebrate Death

October 18, 2011

Dear Friend of Israel,

Tuesday was a joyous day for all of Israel and her friends. After being held captive for five years by Hamas terrorists, kidnapped Israel Defense Forces soldier Gilad Shalit was returned home.

As Israel celebrated the return of one young man kidnapped while serving his country, hundreds of thousands of Palestinians in the West Bank and Gaza gathered to celebrate the return of the hundreds of prisoners released in exchange for Shalit parading with Hamas flags, blaring music from loudspeakers on the back of trucks, and lighting fireworks. The atmosphere was jubilant.

Exactly whose release were the Palestinians celebrating? People like Ahlam Tamimi, convicted and given multiple life sentences for her role in the 2001 bombing of a Sbarro restaurant in Jerusalem that killed 15 innocent people. Then there is Nasser Yateima, organizer of the horrendous 2002 Park Hotel bombing that took 30 lives. And Walid Abdel-Hadi, serving 36 life terms for his role in several attacks, including a 2002 bombing in a cafe that killed 11.

The freed prisoners were defiant. Ahlam Tamimi said, “Allah has chosen soldiers for him on this land and they are the soldiers? of (Hamas' armed wing) the al-Qassam Brigades. They are going to free all prisoners.” Another, Nimer Darwaze, proudly told the Reuters news agency, “The resistance is increasing and there are steps for the future. The resistance will continue until the victory.” You will search news reports in vain for any messages of remorse or reconciliation from these recently freed terrorists; “resistance,” for them, clearly means more terror.

What does this tell us about the Israelis and the Palestinians?

One of the most astute and clear-eyed observers of the Middle East around today, my friend Elliot Abrams, recently wrote, “Regimes, like individuals, are rightly judged by the company they keep and even more by the people they celebrate.” This rule applies to entire societies as well.

And so, as we Israelis rejoice in Gilad’s return, we are thankful to God. And we rejoice, too, that he returned to a country that so values life that it is willing to make unthinkably painful sacrifices to secure freedom for one unjustly imprisoned young man rather than to a society that celebrates those who deal in death.

With prayers for shalom, peace,

Rabbi Yechiel Eckstein

God blesses all soldiers of Israel!

Stop UNESCO from Recognizing Palestinian Statehood

The UN General Assembly heeded the calls of our people and postponed a Palestinian statehood vote indefinitely. Now, the Palestinians are trying to go through the backdoor – and gain recognition by another branch of the UN - the UN Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO).
We Say NO!
We need your help. We need 1,000 Americans to sign our petition to STOP UNESCO from prematurely recognizing a Palestinian state and to Keep the Peace Process Alive. We will personally deliver the petition to Secretary of State Clinton and the UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon.
UPDATE 10/18: We have exceeded our goal of 1,000 Americans! Can we hit 2,000 before the vote? We can with your help! Sign now!

Little Hope

Little Hope
Can you imagine living through a Russian winter with no heat in your home?
Sadly, it’s a very real possibility for thousands of elderly destitute Jews, including holocaust survivors, who face a harsh winter without the vital help provided by IFCJ’s Isaiah 58 program.
People like Anna Karabut, who, as a child, survived Nazi brutality in a concentration camp.
Now she suffers through harsh Russian winters in a house with little food, no central heat, no indoor plumbing, and no running water.
Anna simply could not survive without the food, assistance and winter relief she receives thanks to IFCJ donors like you.
My friend, there are thousands of elderly Jews — like Anna — who live in miserable, squalid conditions in the former Soviet Union, constantly making the heartbreaking choice between buying food, medicine, heating fuel or other essentials.  I fear that many may not make it through another winter without our help.
During the dead of winter, many elderly and infirm are unable to leave their home for days or weeks at a time. Ensuring that they have food, heating fuel and basic necessities is absolutely critical.
We must act. And we must act now.
Isaiah teaches us “comfort ye, comfort ye, my people.” Today, I urge you to say to these desperate people — 'We stand with you, we will comfort you, we will be there for you and you can count on us.'
There are so many lonely elderly, including Holocaust survivors like Anna, living in shocking poverty — with your help, we can make a meaningful difference in their lives.
With prayers for shalom, peace,
Rabbi Sig
Rabbi Yechiel Eckstein
Jewish people in the former Soviet Union are not only facing a long, cold winter, but also a rise in anti-Semitism throughout the region.  They are denied opportunities and live in constant fear and unimaginable poverty.
We have an obligation, an opportunity, and, I would say, a responsibility to help.  Please make a special wintertime gift to Isaiah 58


God blesses Israel and Shalom!

"That Israel Must Disappear." And No One Uttered a Peep of Protest! (BUT I PROTEST!)

Strange! Many Brazilian analysts attribute to the Palestinians themselves candidly that are not attributed. Imagine if an Israeli diplomat from any spot said: "This Palestinian Authority should disappear ..." It would be a scandal. On Friday, in a speech to university students, Alzeben Ibrahim, Palestinian ambassador in Brazil, with all the letters said: "That Israel should disappear."
So that did not weigh no doubt about what he was saying, made ​​it clear: "And is not the ambassador of Iran or President (Mahmoud) Ahmadinejad who is speaking." Soon, it became evident that he was not mean Israel must disappear from the West Bank. It is wiped off the map even as Ahmadinejad preached. But of course, many will say: "Oh, he does not send anything!" Yeah! It reflects an internal debate, perhaps a strategy.
Knowing that Hamas, which also finds that Israel must disappear, will not stop throwing rockets into Israel, Alzeben said: "Israel is preparing provocations for a new conflict. Doubt the origin of the next rocket departing from Palestine." Said it had information of counterintelligence under which Israel would be infiltrating agents into Gaza to fire missiles at the territory itself, understood?
Jewish State 
By stating that "this Israel must disappear," Alzeben throws the nature of the "struggle" which many experts, including ours, refuse to admit.
When the Palestinian Authority refuses to recognize Israel as a "Jewish state" wants to make the return of the so-called "refugees" as a cause future generations to be guided. How can not eliminate "that Israel" by arms, dreaming one day eliminate it by demographics.
It will not happen. "This Israel" will not disappear even in a way or another. Anti-Semitism can be sure that their struggle did not have time to finish ... Pah! 
By Reinaldo Azevedo
Source (in portuguese):

If an ambassador of Israel saying that to "Palestine" should disappear of the map, with certainty, this ambassador would be in bad right sheets now. But I say: IT IS EASIER TO "PALESTINE" DISAPPEAR OF THE MAP, THAN THAT HAPPEN WITH ISRAEL. THE WORLD WANT THAT ISRAEL DISAPPEAR OF THE MAP, BUT THAT IS GOING TO HAPPEN WITH THE "PALESTINE" AND WITH THE WORLD.

All Americans and Christians do something urgently, please:
God blesses Israel and Shalom!

Critical Situation of Israel

Documentary producer and best-selling author Mike Evans discusses his experiences writing and filming in Israel and why now is a critical time to keep Israel in prayer.

Making clear what is usually kept hidden a key member of the Fatah Central Committee, Abbas Zaki, said in an Al-Jazeera interview that the proposal to force Israel to give up the so-called West Bank, the Bible lands of Judea and Samaria, would bring Israel to its doom. He described the creation of a Palestinian state as simply the first step toward the overall goal of completely eliminating the nation of Israel.
All of the talk about a “two state solution” is just window dressing to disguise the fact that one of those “states” doesn’t want peace. The enemies of Israel want nothing less than the utter destruction of Israel…and they are now brave enough to start saying so in public. Will you stand in the gap for Israel today? The prophet Isaiah wrote of hearing God’s question: “Whom shall I send and who will go for us?” Isaiah answered, “Here am I, send me.” What will your answer be today?

Next week 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 many 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


Pray for Israel, please!
Shalom and God blesses you!

Israel Palestinian Conflict: The Truth About the Peace Process

Israel's Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs Danny Ayalon explains the historical facts relating to the Israeli Palestinian conflict. The video explains that the reason there is no successful peace process is because of decades of Palestinian and Arab recalcitrance and the main reason for the conflict is not Israel's presence in the West Bank, but successive Palestinian leaders resistance to Jewish sovereignty.
