Inaccurate BBC Balfour Declaration claim misleads audiences

The unreliability of Bigoted Brainwashing Clowns, aka BBC, as a source of information is demonstrated in this demolition of its ignorance. (See also recent post’s update alerting readers to BBC’s reporting less than 1% of terrorist attacks in Israel.)

BBC Watch

On November 1st an article titled “Battle of Beersheba charge recreated for centenary” was published on the BBC News website’s Australia and Middle East pages.

In among an otherwise reasonable account of the commemoration of that First World War battle, readers found the following two paragraphs:

“The Battle of Beersheba led to the Balfour Declaration – the first time the British government endorsed the establishment of “a national home for the Jewish people” in Palestine.

While many Israelis believe it was the foundation stone of modern Israel and the salvation of the Jews, many Palestinians regard it as a betrayal.” [emphasis added]

The Battle of Beersheba took place on October 31st 1917. The Balfour Declaration was published just two days later on November 2nd 1917. Apparently though the BBC would have its audiences believe – as the use of the words “led to” indicates…

Network ‘gremlins’ block comment on Boris, BBC & Balfour post

Being away from 10 o’clock on duties at Acorn after having published the previous post on Boris, BBC and Balfour Declaration I was unaware of a most informative comment submitted by Dave Chapman about half-an-hour later. It’s presented a fascinating but annoying bit of bother: something or someone somewhere read it and decided to block its appearance! That is, you cannot yet read his remarks at the foot of that post because WordPress is malfunctioning?

Could that be just sheer coincidence?  Let’s not get paranoid, but it reminds me of when my blogging about Iran’s rehearsals to attack Israel was affected (as here).

However, I was able to update that post with these appended notes which I’d started but had to amend, and added screenshot to confirm I’m not imagining this malfunction:

‘Also, please note Comments below from Dave Chapman, to which I’m about to reply in some detail…WHOA THERE! – MOST PECULIAR: although I saw them in an email alert to my phone timed at 10:35 (read approx 14:30 half-mile away and am now back home on PC), his message does not appear either at the foot of this post as usual, or in my admin screen’s listing of comments – yet it is flagged atop home page’s Recent Comments sidebar (as shown below)!

‘MOREOVER that email alert hasn’t downloaded to my PC (stop press: just in at 15:30 but no change on WordPress). So is someone, somewhere censoring and blocking his truthful material ??  WEIRD!’

Now past 17:00hrs we’ll solve the problem by copying the email alerting me to Dave Chapman’s comments:

So I emailed Dave direct with this reply (links added):

‘Thanks for taking time to go into details as I’d hoped on Monday to have been able to update readers on Trump by using material in Saturday’s ‘Koenig’s Eye View at White House’. In the light of his research since early 1990’s, I’m well aware of the correlation between talks to divide the land that biblically is to be Israel’s and the severe weather in USA. It’s so empirically observable that it’s almost scientifically demonstrable fact!

‘Here’s Bill Koenig’s latest on that scenario:

Trump’s Middle East peace plan is revealing. Has “Eye to Eye” made a difference?

‘The Times of Israel said Sunday that the Trump administration would shortly unveil a formal proposal for Middle East peace that aims to enable a “comprehensive regional arrangement,” but that it will not be imposed on the sides, and that it will not feature a rigid timetable. An administration official told The Times of Israel, however, that there were no imminent plans to present a proposal.

‘I prayed that President Trump would read my Sept. 6 letter and review “Eye to Eye”  [Bill’s book] and/or at least talked to staff about the book…to let the president know of the consequences of dividing God’s land. Additionally, I have also been told that people have written the White House about Israel’s covenant land…

‘President Trump has been expected to provide a comprehensive regional plan since his meetings with Arab leaders in Riyadh in May and at the UN in September. If he didn’t come forth with at least some plan, this would not bode well for him and Jared Kushner, after they showed such enthusiasm towards a comprehensive Middle East plan and deal. Moreover, President Trump doesn’t want to stop his tough talk or negate his credibility and/or reputation amongst Sunni Arab leaders which could further complicate his Iran and North Korea actions and decisions.

‘However, the fact a regional arrangement will not be “imposed” or that there would not be a “rigid timetable” is big news. In other words, they’re backing off the pressure, which is key. Plus, no imminent plans to present a proposal is also very favorable.’ (Emphasis RB’s)

Boris (brave), the BBC (beware!) and the Balfour Declaration

Yesterday’s encouraging op-ed in the Telegraph broadsheet on the Balfour Declaration by Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson covers his vision and a solution for peace in the Holy Land.  Lord Balfour’s Declaration of 2nd November 1917 on behalf of the British government under Lloyd-George, proposed the establishment of territory within Palestine for the Jewish people upon the collapse of the Ottoman Empire after allied victory in World War 1. That is, it would be in their own original and ancient homeland.  Boris writes,

‘On the Centenary, I will say what I believe: the Balfour Declaration was indispensable to the creation of a great nation. In the seven decades since its birth, Israel has prevailed over what has sometimes been the bitter hostility of neighbours to become a liberal democracy and a dynamic hi-tech economy. In a region where many have endured authoritarianism and misrule, Israel has always stood out as a free society. Like every country, Israel has faults and failings. But it strives to live by the values in which I believe.

‘I served a stint at a kibbutz in my youth, and (though I was mainly washing up) I saw enough to understand the miracle of Israel: the bonds of hard work, self-reliance and an audacious and relentless energy that hold together a remarkable country.

‘Most of all, there is the incontestable moral goal: to provide a persecuted people with a safe and secure homeland. So I am proud of Britain’s part in creating Israel and Her Majesty’s Government will mark the Centenary of the Balfour Declaration on Thursday in that spirit…’

His thoughts are well-worth reading for they display a keen appreciation of the state of affairs and he argues for a two-state solution thoroughly negotiated by Israelis and the Palestinians. BUT I have to say this could have been achieved decades ago but for the hatred, intransigence and duplicity of Palestinian leaders who prefer to forever whinge about victim-hood, instead of blessing and prospering their people’s lives!

For example, according to the International Christian Embassy in Jerusalem’s report the PA ‘demands’ a formal apology from Britain for the Balfour Declaration!

The well-worn adage that ‘history is written by the victors’ isn’t so much of a yardstick in these days because of the increased global ability to research and investigate in depth through cyber-technology. However, there are many who bury and distort facts to avoid painful truths and spread lies for perverted propaganda purposes – not only politicians and terrorists but also medintellectuals and historians, who should know much better but serve the evil one’s purposes instead.

Tonight BBC 2 broadcasts ‘The Balfour Declaration: Britain’s Promise to the Holy Land’ at 8pm. The Badly Bigoted Corporation’s tarnished reputation hardly makes this good, recommended viewing, especially if it is similar to BBC Radio Wales’ highly politicised account of the Declaration. Aired earlier this month, that programme included numerous omissions and inaccuracies according to BBC Watch’s in-depth review (here and here). This watchdog concludes,

‘…the aim of this programme appears to have been to steer BBC audiences towards the partisan view that – as Sarah Rowland-Jones inaccurately claimed in her introduction – the Balfour Declaration “sits behind the lasting conflict in the region”, while the relevant issue of Arab violence against Jews and later Israelis was once again whitewashed from a BBC account of history.’ (Emphasis mine)

Having investigated the modern history of Palestine in some depth I trust this brief note will warn you to keep an open mind and be alert to myths you may be exposed to. (NB. BBC reports less than 1% terrorist attacks against Israel in Q3 yet over 29% BBC News website covers security/terror issues – a disproportionate imbalance – and give excuses supportive of attackers for those it does cover.)

May you, my reader, discover the facts for yourself.

Also, please continue to the next post to read highly informative comments and about the ‘glytch’ preventing their receipt and automatic appearance at the foot of this post.

Time for the ‘house of cards’ to come down!

This prophetic promise comes courtesy of UK Prophetic Words and is very interesting in view of what Leisa Ebere and Charlie Shamp brought here and here from the Lord, and ‘Amen’ to Vida Caplin’s conclusion:

IT IS TIME FOR THE HOUSE OF CARDS TO COME DOWN

I saw in the spirit a house of cards and heard the old nursery rhyme ‘London Bridge is falling down‘ begin to play. A hand appeared and took a card from the bottom and the house fell. I looked at the cards as they lay in a heap and saw that they were all face cards, jacks, queens and kings. I then heard another old rhyme ‘Humpty Dumpty’ begin to play.

I asked Holy Spirit to reveal to me the meaning of the vision.

“This house of cards has been carefully built over the years by those in power, it has been shaken countless times, many have seen the cracks form but it has been fortified and strengthened by those who live within its walls. It is now the time for this house to come down and it shall be done by my hand. Many shall wonder at its falling and ask, How can this be? Should we not rebuild? Can we not establish again what once was? But it shall not come to pass for no man can put this back together.”

Again I pondered on Holy Spirit’s revelation but wondered why the two nursery rhymes had played. I was stirred to look at the words of each one. In London Bridge is falling down, the words repeat time and time again in each verse about rebuilding and making stronger the construction, even setting guards to watch over it. Yet when Humpty Dumpty falls the last line states, ‘All the King’s horses and all the King’s men, couldn’t put Humpty together again!’

God is going to pull down something very big and it will not be rebuilt. This is an empire work of corruption that Holy Spirit is speaking of. The house of cards speaks of something that has been intricately built over the years, the face cards speak of those who are in powerful positions or are known. More than that Holy Spirit has not revealed but we watch for the dramatic fall to happen.

Vida Caplin, Saturday 28th October 2017

PS 1: Blog’s facebook remarks 31 Oct:

>Rachel Elliston: ‘I’m not familiar with the tv series House of Cards (it is a box set yet to be watched), however I was amused to see it in the news on my fb feed in the context of being ‘deeply troubled’ and the series being cancelled… just days after I first saw this word. Funny how things in the spiritual and the ‘natural’, or ‘symbolic natural’ mirror each other, often in very odd ways’.

> My response: ‘…I too am unfamiliar with US-version of ‘HoC’ and didn’t follow last night’s and today’s news…but noted front-page spread of today’s Telegraph on scandals relating to UK MPs and US government (albeit fictitious in latter). So it’s not only a demonic version of the UK/US spiritual link but also an instance of the Lord exposing corruption in every sphere, as in examples of fulfilled prophecies (see FP #10 entries).

‘Weep for the BBC’ (intercession) starts tonight

Robin Jegede-Brimson, co-pastor of Servant Ministries in Whitstable, Kent, and one of the leaders of the Inter-Prophetic Alliance (IPA) issues this invitation to intercessors:

A CALL TO WEEP (INTERCEDE) FOR THE BBC

The BBC is in GOD’s spotlight!

We are called to make disciples of all nations, as in making converts and discipling people from all ethnic groups (Gk:Ethnae) “nations” but in another sense we are also called to introduce kingdom values to the systems and institutions of nations. This gives rise to the distinction in Matt 25:32 between sheep and goat nations. We see patterns of this in the life of Joseph who through his wisdom was able to save and preserve life in Egypt as well as Daniel who was promoted on the back of his very public unflinching in the face of persecution. He stood up for his faith, despite all…

In 1992 the BBC was dedicated to GOD and the plaque in the lobby of the BBC boldly declares,

“To GOD Almighty, .. praying that a good sowing may produce a good harvest so that everything unclean, impure and hostile to peace may be driven out, that whatever is beautiful, sincere, genuine and of good reputation may stand  . .”

However, this millennium has seen the BBC shift from being an impartial broadcaster to one which actively seeks to push ideologies averse to civilization and family, the building blocks of society and godliness. When those at the helm are challenged through petitions or the newscasters or offered an opinion other than that of the liberals, all objections are treated with impunity and hostility. “Bigot!”, “Homophobic!” and the like are what come. The BBC has become an organisation used by the enemy to promote gender extremism and hostility against any who hold to family values. A national institution in favour of all things Islam at the expense of Christianity. Even GOD-fearing politicians are not spared this barrage when they stand up for truth, decency and common sense morality.

Here are a few examples :

So, what can we do? Are we helpless at this tide of evil? By no means!! We are not without weapons, we are not without power, we are not helpless, WE CAN PRAY, and PRAY we shall! It is time to FIGHT BACK!

Credit_ JesusIsComing_th-1

The BBC and this slide to moral anarchy was highlighted to the Inter-Prophetic Alliance and friends (a group of leaders burdened for the nation) and we set time aside to ask The LORD for His heart for the BBC. We asked for His revelation on what was behind this and what prayer strategy He may have for us. Here are some of our findings and conclusions:-

A. GOD loves all the people in the BBC and desires that they all come to the saving knowledge of JESUS. Tears flowed freely from our faces as we once again encountered The SAVIOUR’s love for all of humanity including the broadcasters who have sought to vilify believers. We wept as we prayed mercy and forgiveness on all the broadcasters who have been caught in the enemy’s trap and castigated believers.

B.  There is a heavy influence on all (but for the grace of GOD and those covered by His Blood) who work in the BBC by the spirit of the power of the air who has been invited by evil workers to rule there. This controlling diabolical spirit is the enemy.

C.  One of the past DG’s of the BBC was closely associated with the occult and as a result of this pacts were made with the enemy. Presently there are several serving at the BBC who have entered into similar demonic pacts.

PRAYER STRATEGY 

As we sought The LORD on what to do, this is what came to us –

1.  Pray, weep and intercede for all who are in the BBC. Pray for GOD’s hand of mercy to be revealed to all and for all who serve the nation there to come to repentance. We must uphold the spiritual truth that GOD always gives time to repent and turn before executing judgement (e.g Thyatira in Rev 2)
“The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. Instead he is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance” 2Peter 3:9

2.  Pray for GOD’s warning that they are in the spotlight to come to ears of those in authority in the BBC, that both Christian and pre-Christian alike find a place of repentance. (note that GOD expects godliness from all (e.g. Herod in Acts 12)
When Jonah’s warning reached the king of Nineveh, he rose from his throne, took off his royal robes, covered himself with sackcloth and sat down in the dust. 7 This is the proclamation he issued in Nineveh: “By the decree of the king and his nobles: Do not let people or animals, herds or flocks, taste anything; do not let them eat or drink. 8 But let people and animals be covered with sackcloth. Let everyone call urgently on God. Let them give up their evil ways and their violence. 9 Who knows? God may yet relent and with compassion turn from his fierce anger so that we will not perish.” 10 When God saw what they did and how they turned from their evil ways, he relented and did not bring on them the destruction he had threatened”(Jonah) 

3. Strengthen the hands of those who are called to be watchmen and intercessors to the BBC and see a company of priestly intercessors who will man the gates for this portal to the nation.

To this end we have a series of prayer events for the BBC coming up –

1. “WEEP (intercede) for the BBC” – a time of weeping and intercessions for all in the BBC
TONIGHT > 6pm Thursday 26th October
Venue: Barclay Hall Christian Fellowship, 25 Barclay Rd, Fulham, London SW6 1EJ

2. “Decree over the BBC” – releasing GOD’s original purpose intent for the BBC
6pm Wednesday 1st November
Venue: Church Of Destiny 454A High Road Tottenham N17 9JD
(At the opening session of APO500* – conference marking the 500th anniversary of the reformation )

3. “Raise an umbrella over the BBC” – strengthening a company to watch and pray
November date to be announced

Hope to see you there, please pass on to your intercessory pals.

Robin Jegede-Brimson, 17th October 2017

RB NOTE: readers familiar with my highly critical blogs on the Badly Biased Corporation (eg. 5 years ago) will recall its anti-Israel stance is not only pro-Palestinian in failing in its statutory duty to report current as well as historical events accurately but also its lack of  impartially arising from its distinctly prejudiced policy. This is amply demonstrated  by BBC Watch’s in-depth investigations overflowing with the corporation’s campaign of irredeemable misinformation, falsehoods and inaccuracies.

Thus, the self-righteous BBC deliberately misleads viewers about the state of Israel.

A letter submitted to the Times for publication. 

Most noteworthy in view of what prophetical voices are bringing about the shaking of church and of society. See also Cranmer’s transcript and forthright commentary upon Piers Morgan’s self-righteous inquisition of our brother in Christ, If a bigot cannot become PM, why should one be allowed to become an MP?

Update 2: “Nets and Lines” prophecy of online harvest of souls

At the weekend’s conference Awake – Partnering with the Awakening, Emma Stark of Glasgow Prophetic Centre presented the statistics of how many people are actually enquiring over the internet about the Good News of Jesus Christ, as shown below:

Gt Commission 2020

Click image for link to update Great Commission 2020’s statistics

I was reminded of the prophetic word pastor John Kilpatrick received from the Lord that He will powerfully use the internet “without edit” to demonstrate and broadcast miraculous signs and wonders, thereby reaping a massive harvest of souls.

Many are aware of TV satellite stations broadcasting the gospel globally. Also, since 2004 digital technology has been used by IT professionals and businessmen to reach out and teach online, as below (if illegible, click About and scroll to foot of screen):

Gt Comm 2020 story1

Gt Comm 2020 story2

It’s all about the greatest story ever told, and as Jesus said to His first disciples:

“All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. Go, therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptising them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the Age”. (Matthew 28:18-20 NKJV)

And they went out and preached everywhere, the Lord working with them and confirming the word through the accompanying signs. (Mark 16:20 NKJV)

Leading publisher contradicts BBC HARDtalk on Obama, Mid-East & terrorism

An extraordinary interview popped onto our TV screen last night after a dvd closed down. We rarely bother with ‘talking-heads’; however, we stopped in our tracks upon hearing a question on the persecution of Christians. Joining as the first question was asked, we remained ‘glued’ to the dialogue.

Lord Weidenfeld credit Independent

Lord Weidenfeld; credit, Independent

News-makers and personalities around the world are interviewed in-depth on BBC World Services’ and News channel’s HARDtalk by presenter Stephen Sackur. Last night he interviewed British peer Lord Weidenfeld, who  made London his home for the past eight decades after escaping nazi Austria and the Holocaust just before World War II. He became one of Britain’s best known publishers of high quality, prize-winning fiction and non-fiction (see Weidenfeld&Nicolson).

The programme was billed: ‘Now 96 years old, his life says much about the modern history of Britain, Europe and the Jewish people. But as he reflects, is he filled with hope or something darker?’. It reflects Sakur’s stance, quite contrary to that of his guest!  And he didn’t cave in to the presenter’s polite grilling…

The opening question was about why he’d set up Operation Safe Haven, as publicised last July (eg. see Daily Mail article). His answer is that it’s in gratitude for and repayment of his debt to Christians because they’d helped him and his family to escape Austria, as well as when problems arose in pre-war Britain.

As the Operations objective is being purely to assist Iraqi and Syrian Christians, Sackur  objects by referring to USA’s reservations about helping and says such help should be humanitarian only: his work shouldn’t be religiously selective but include Muslims too because they’re also suffering.

Weidenfeld recognises it’s an important point and counters by referring to his inter-faith work in improving relations between Jews, Christians and Muslims. The presenter then pushes for the logical consequence of such cooperation by rescuing those of any faith.

But the guest is candid and forthright in saying Christians in those lands “get a raw deal, they don’t get sufficient support” and because of his personal experience wants to repay them.

“Let me put it bluntly” retorts Sackur and posits a position of his guest refusing to help  those in the migrating masses who are not Christians.

Weidenfeld is forthright about this ‘academic question’, reminds him of the Communist and Nazi persecutions and that nothing is being done by the Western world to help the ancient Christian world. He contradicts Sackur’s typically BBC pro-Palestinian and anti-Christian moronic mind-set,

“A great deal is being done for the Muslims…logistically they’re in the situation and their safe havens are pretty close by and a huge amount of money is available for them – but the Christians get the raw deal: that’s what I’m saying!”

Not content, Sackur pushes his point by referring to Europe and problems here only for his guest to be equally blunt,

“The Western world is in a bad moral shape and, I’m afraid, I blame the leader of the Western world, President, Obama for a lot of what’s happening now”

“You can’t surely blame him for Europe’s failure to lead on this (migrant) crisis…?” blurts the Beeb’s man.

“I blame him for having created situations in the Middle-East and undulating, uncertain, weak foreign policy that has done a great deal to bring about this present situation. I could go into great detail on this…”

As regards Europe and jihadist attacks they discuss the safety of Jews, the call for their return to their original, ancient homeland (now the state of Israel), anti-Semitism and the roots of terrorism. In view of the peer’s connections and experience in Germany a good discussion develops. Regarding anti-Semitism he thinks,

“There are two roots of anti-Semitism: a religious root and an economical root….the first is no longer valid for people don’t say, “You killed the Saviour” – so that root died out in the 18th Century. The economic root is also not so valid because, if you look at the phone directories of most European capitals many (Jewish) bankers, lawyers and dentists no longer exist there because of Auschwitz.

“So it is Jihadism – the hatred of Jews brought about by radical Islam. There’s no question about that! It’s anti the Jewish state, it’s anti-Zionism – that’s what it is really.”

Sackur notices his disquiet over the Obama administration and asks what’s made him so angry. Having spent time in the States, Weidenfeld responds that,

“…he is someone who has no talent or knowledge about foreign affairs. He may be a good orator, possibly quite well equipped to deal with home affairs, but he hasn’t got a feeling for foreign affairs. He is naïve. He builds up Putin into a position of where he’s a mixture of Disraeli and Bismarck as arbiter in the Middle-East; in Syria he made him the man for opening the debate with Iran to his own disadvantage – and I think he has weakened, he has alienated, some of our allies to a point of great bitterness. So I make him responsible for a lot of what’s going on today in the Middle-East.”

The presenter offers, as though speaking for that administration, their objection based upon delivery of democratic mandate, getting out of the M-East and making a deal with Iran, which earns the peer’s gentle but forthright rebuke,

“With Iran it is a very dangerous situation now because – although there may be a way of curbing the atomic ambitions – you’re dealing with a theocratic government of extreme violence – and the present president just has a better table-manner than his predecessor – but I think that by filling their coffers now you make it possible for them to support Hezbollah, to support all kinds of extremists and you’re probably going to have another intifada or full-fledged war before long because the Iranians are again going to be on the warpath.”

Prophetically relevant gov’t news from the UK and USA

Last week, apparently unrelated events involving Prime Minister David Cameron and President Obama could show an out-working of prophecies about accelerating events. Although being mutually exclusive, the effects of these events have global ramifications.

We’ll look at those words first and then the events, then their common denominator and the relevance of those contemporary, as well as of ancient, prophecies to the events.

So first, carefully consider what Neville Johnson brought in August for this new Hebraic year:

The issue of sowing and reaping is becoming critical. Everything is speeding up. The process of sowing and reaping is being shortened over recent times. Scary because we don’t always sow the right things, and it’s coming back quicker!” (See Urgent prophetic words about a cut-off date in God’s timeline, point 3)

Secondly, in March John Kilpatrick brought:

“In the season that we’re entering into the Lord says, “I’m going to cut things short”…listen carefully, we don’t realise how fast God’s going to speed things up and expedite things!” (See A season of ‘suddenlies’ AND a shifting)

Now the events:

1. Cameron v. BBC

Cameron - credit The CommentatorPM Cameron and Chancellor of the Exchequer Osborne took serious objection to the Blatantly Biased Corporation’s lack of objectivity and consequential political interference in reporting the budgetary Autumn Statement. The Telegraph editorial of 5th December opens with the assumption that, given its obligation as national public service broadcaster, the BBC’s obligation is to be balanced. Going into depth and referring to other instances, the editor remarks,

Anyone who retorts that they were irritated by just one report needs to view it in the wider context of BBC bias.

Read How a 3-min dawn broadcast generated a full-blown clash between the Beeb and Number 10, with fuller background at Under siege the ‘biased’ BBC fights for its life – but that’s nothing! There’s also the huge raft of issues monitored by BBC Watch, as in their latest on BBC’s Arab-Israel conflict obsession distorts history.

Regular readers are aware of many instances of pointing out the BBC’s unethical and unprofessional deep-seated prejudice that makes its reporting totally unreliable – even seeming to support terrorism (BBC tag refers)!

Hopefully, the reaction by the government’s Tories will severely shake the BBC and delay the renewal of its Charter, and even scrap the totalitarian levy of its annual licence fee.

2. Obama v. Netanyahu

In its exclusive report on Thursday DebkaFile reported Obama set on obstructing Netanyahu’s re-election. This report begins,

obama-netanyahu4‘President Barack Obama and his White House National Security team headed by Susan Rice have decided to seize on the political crisis besetting the Israeli government and the upcoming general election on March 17 for action to bar Binyamin Netanyahu’s re-election to a fourth term as prime minister…

‘This White House campaign would be accompanied by leaks from Washington for putting Netanyahu and his policies in a derogatory light…some senior sources in the US capital confided to DebkaFile that administration joy over political developments in Israel could quickly prove premature – either in view of another round of violence overtaking the Middle East, or by once again misreading Israel’s political map before stepping in and so failing in its object..’.

In my opinion interference in the internal political process of another nation, especially a democratic ally, is unconscionable. Obama’s well-known disdain for Bibi Netanyahu is poisoning Israeli politics. Clinton did the same during Netanyahu’s first term as PM – and we know the humiliating impeachment he suffered! Therefore, the US may now be in for some surprises in the next few months.

UPDATE 9/12: Washington Beacon – Congress demands Obama explain rumoured sanctions against Israel.

3. Common Denominator

The underlying common denominator in both instances is God’s plans and purposes for His covenantal people, the Jews and the land He designated for their homeland. In their unabashed hostility to them the BBC and President Obama have chosen to go against the One who is not to be mocked.

Also, let’s not overlook an early revelation about the Day of the Lord, as delivered by the prophet Obadiah:

“For the day of the LORD upon all the nations is near; As you have done (to Israel) it shall be done to you; Your reprisal shall be upon your own head”. (Obadiah 15 NKJV, emphasis added)

Perhaps pay-back time for the ‘Beeb’ and ‘Potus’ is rapidly approaching? News of other developments suggests that may not be wishful thinking…

THIS WEEK

In a more detailed analysis of several developments DebkaFile refers to a meeting of 6 Gulf Cooperation Council rulers scheduled for this week in Doha. It bears the hallmarks of extensive yet quiet cooperation between Israel and key Arab leaders and the report reveals,

‘Its agenda is topped by moves to finally unravel the 2010 Arab Spring policy championed by US President Barack Obama…The Doha summit is designed to crown a historic effort led by Saudi King Abdullah…to undo the effects of the Obama administration’s support for elements dedicated to the removal of conservative Arab rulers, such as (by the Muslim) Brotherhood. They have found a key ally in this drive in Israel’s PM Netanyahu…’

The report also makes claims for the PM’s rare achievement of close coordination with the most important Arab leaders, as follows:

  • allowing Egypt to deploy 13 battalions in demilitarized Sinai to combat terrorists,
  • diplomatic operation instrumental in obstructing US-Iran deal on nuclear weapons,
  • Jordan’s replacement of Islamist security guards on the sensitive Temple Mount,
  • Saudi and Gulf funding to Palestinian areas of Jerusalem defused recent rioting,
  • Egypt and Gulf have influenced PA’s Abbas to reduce his incitement and invective,
  • because these Arab leaders are marginalizing the Palestine issue, Hamas leader Meshaal tried re-igniting violence in Jerusalem but he went unheeded!

So the report concludes,

‘Netanyahu may or may not opt to brandish Israel’s breakthrough to the Arab world as campaign fodder to boost his run for re-election. Whatever he decides, the rulers of Saudi Arabia, the Arab emirates and Egypt have turned out to have acquired an interest in maintaining him in office as head of the Israeli government, in direct opposition to President Obama’s ambition to unseat him.’

The heart of these issues lies in Obama’s Cairo speech and later betrayal of Egypt’s president Mubarak by elevating the Muslim Brotherhood, encouraging its revolution and allowing infiltration into the USA. (Walid Shoebat, ex-Palestinian extremist with many contacts in the Middle East, reports Obama’s half-brother is influential in the MB.) Saudi Arabia took grave exception to Potus’ several actions, as noted in my correspondence on those events.

So maybe it’s time to even the score? What fascinating times we’re living in!

Let’s keep watching…

In view of my long-standing complaints about the BBC’s abysmal reporting standards you may want to watch Simon Plosker of media-watchdog Honest Reporting. In this video he speaks about European and American media’s deliberate false reporting of news on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict

He’s asked, “Are there any consequences to reporting like that? Do you just put it on (your site) and hope they pick it up and that their readership sees it…or…Does someone get fired over something like that?”

He responds,

“One thing we can do is, we have a very, very large reach. We have 140,000 subscribers around the world. We’re active on Facebook, Twitter…all sorts of social media and one thing we noticed yesterday – as soon as we expose these things – they were going viral.

“There was no way the media outlets could ignore what was going on ‘cos they were being told in no uncertain terms they’d got it wrong!

“The BBC are notorious for their choice of headlines…”

In this video Simon analyses media reports from Canada, Ireland, Britain and USA to expose the unprecedented media bias against Israel.

KINDLY CIRCULATE FAR AND WIDE

Prophetic Voice TV – now launched

As regular readers will know, I’ve been blessed over many years with attending Rev Dr Sharon Stone’s training and mentoring days, so I can highly recommend this online media facility.

Registration is necessary for watching Prophetic Voice TV. This is straightforward and applicants are required to select facilities required according to payment. Just click on image below.

Free viewing is available for weekly teaching and an informal ‘chat’ from Sharon plus a guest teacher’s message. Training modules in the prophetic and supernatural are pay-per-view, and a 12 month season pass includes conferences and mentoring days.

I’m especially pleased to learn that Bishop Knox and his wife Delia have been long-time personal friends of Sharon, and that the supernatural training module includes Delia’s spectacular healing in 2010 at The Bay Revival (as reviewed here – see also this blog’s Video clips of healing testimonies).
