Northern Branch of the Islamic Movement banned in Israel - Party leader vows to liberate Al Aqsa “with blood and fire”

Igal HechtIsrael Correspondent

The Times of Israel is reporting that thousands of Israeli Arabs took to the streets on Saturday to protest a security cabinet decision to ban the radical political group Northern Branch of the Islamic Movement.

The political group and its leader, Sheikh Raed Salah, have frequently incited Arab-Israelis against the state of Israel most recently fuelling the wave of violence referred to as the “Intifada of the Knife”.

Netanyahu noted that this Islamic extremism is the same ideology that is behind all of the attacks around the world whether in Paris or Mali, places where there are no settlements, demonstrating that the opposition is to free and open western democracies regardless of where they exist.

Good for Netanyahu and the Knesset and Israel.
At last some meaningful movement in the right direction.

God bless you too, Dan! I’m just glad that I have others to talk to along the way.

“…I do hope that God is forgiving of my ignorance of true facts, though I do not mind being corrected, because I prefer to operate using the truth!”

“…God knows that I am not perfect”
None of us weak sinners are.
God bless you…

A little extra background…. The Temple Mount is highly regarded by Jews, Christians and Muslims… but it could be noted that when muslim pray at the Mount, they point their feet, backs and anus to their ‘holy’ mosque, while they face Mekkah. The Mount is administered by the Jordanian Waqf… until 1967, Jordan occupied the entire area (Judea / Samaria, East Jerusalem), and at that time, not a single Israeli (regardless of religion), nor and Jew from any country in the world, was allowed to visit…. since 1967, Israel has has control of the area but still allows the Jordanian Waqf to administer the site. About 4,000,000 muslims visit each year plus about 200,000 Christians and about 12,000 Jews (or about one third of one percent)…. however, Jews face the most restrictions and are not allowed to move their lips… if one moves their lips, it is assumed that they are silently praying in their minds, an act that muslims find offensive. If caught moving your lips, you will be immediately expelled. The next component to consider is the Arab Leadership such as Abu Mazen (abbas)… they are all billionaires and highly abusive of their own citizens and therefore under constant pressure to avoid arab-spring like uprisings. The most pragmatic way for them to do this is to create diversions and imaginary threats. This is the case with the Temple Mount. Arab leaders are telling their subjects that Israel is changing the status-quo. The Arab leaders are also inciting violence. In fact, abu-mazen has recently given a speech where he said that Jews are desecrating the Mount with their “filthy feet”, just to name one example… and it works, their subjects are whipped into a fury and have resorted to ramming their cars into random Israelis and undertaken, almost daily, knife attacks… stabbing, murdering and wounding random Israelis and visitors. If there is any doubt, one can note that USA’s Kerry and the leader of Jordan came up with an idea recently to install video cameras to monitor the Mount….. Israel immediately agreed…but the ‘palesinian authority’ immediately refused and said that they would destroy any cameras. Israel is still in agreement to install cameras and to allow them to be available to anyone who wants to watch a live feed, but then Jordan stressed that when the camera idea was proposed, it was to be only viewable by the Jordanians and that they would only share with Israel whatever clips they selectively choose. It’s very plain to see that the Israeli side has not changed the status-quo and have nothing to hide, and indeed want facts and monitoring to be open and transparent; but, the arab side wants everything hidden for fear of having their boogie-man exposed for what it is, a big fat arab lie.

Dan Mancuso – I’m sticking by my comment that you are an intellectual, but it’s not meant as an insult to you, on the contrary, it’s a compliment. I know from your comments that you are well read, so to me a little intimidating, because I’m not always sure that I understand your comments. I thought the Seventh Day Adventists were the only ones that celebrated on Saturday. But I do recall it now that you have said it, that Jesus did rest Saturday. In the Lutheran Church, we always attend church on Sunday’s, so I do hope that God is forgiving of my ignorance of true facts, though I do not mind being corrected, because I prefer to operate using the truth! I agree that this world is getting crazier by the day, and it seems to have picked up speed, over the last 5-years. The father of lies is working overtime, especially here in Canada, with our recent elections in AB and the federal one. I’m holding on to hope that God will remove Christians before all hell breaks loose. I really enjoy reading Billy Graham, and Charles Swindoll. Charles used to have a radio show called “Faith to Live By” in the 70’s, back in the day when I used to listen to the radio a lot more than I do now, though I still enjoy the medium, I just get tired of the constant socialized messages, that are blasted out every 15-minutes. I hope some sanity will return to earth, but the more I think about it, the more I think that this is part of God’s plan. It is truly hard to watch and listen to all the insanity now, but I just pray that I’m not disqualified from the race, as God knows that I am not perfect!

I’ve been called lots of names before – ‘intellectual’ was never one of them…
Check it out: The Last Day refers to the seventh day when God rested – that’s Saturday. Sunday is the First Day…
It’s important to know the ‘truth’ when you pray or otherwise interact with God – whatever that turns out to be.
Questions like those I raised below, cause me to look deeper into my beliefs and ‘truths’. It’s very challenging but also very rewarding because it has the effect of strengthening one’s understanding and faith. Remember Matthew 7:15-20 – we live in a very dangerous world full of demons and evil…
I hadn’t heard of Chuck Swindoll before, but I like the idea of, “… the clear, practical application of God’s Word and His grace.”
As to the why of all this – the Muslim juggernaut that is at our door and forcing it’s way in can only be defeated by our faith and right actions for God, and if it is God’s will to punish us (for our degenerate society) with this Muslim invasion and destruction, then we as a society must atone and ask for forgiveness, and since that is unlikely to happen at this point, our faith and knowledge will keep us safe until the Kingdom of God arrives.

Well done Israel, keep up the good fight. You have a lot of friends in Canada. Take no heed of Justin Trudeau, he is just small blot in our history and will soon be gone.

Dan Mancuso – to tell you the truth, this the first I’ve heard of 10-lost tribes. You are much more of an intellectual than this girl is. What I’ve learned as a Christian, has been from attending Sunday school as a child, and church as an adult, and through Bible study classes, and my own reading of mostly Billy Graham, and Charles Swindol’s books. I think Sunday is the best day for the Sabbath to be celebrated, because that is when the Lord rested!
commented 2015-11-30 13:13:41 -0500
Given the sentiments in many of your previous posts, and this statement: “…to thank the God of Israel…”, I’m curious what you think of the idea that the ten lost tribes of Israel – who by the way, never returned to Israel after the Babylonian captivity – are in fact today’s descendents of Great Britain and NW European people? It would go a long way to explaining why our once God-fearing and God-blessed countries (white, European, Christian) are being destroyed from within and from without…is this the Mosaic Covenant playing out?
I’m also curious what you think of when the Sabbath should be celebrated; the First Day, where the Bible clearly shows us Jesus and His disciples celebrated it, or the Last Day, when (most) Christians have celebrated it, for the last 17 centuries or so?
And then of course there’s Ishmael…

Which one, Donald, the first comment or the second comment … or both.

I too agree with Dave’s comment. I also want to thank the God of Israel for saving Gentiles too!

I second Daves’ comment!

Here’s a comment that should get a lot of negative reaction. Ready? Here it goes … The religion of Islam is Lucifer’s religion. Let the angry attacks on my statement begin!
