Massive Israel Oil Discovery in the Golan Heights

By -NO AUTHOR- (International Business Times) A massive oil reserve has been discovered in the Golan Heights by an Israeli energy company, regional news outlets reported Wednesday. The find by Afek Oil and Gas, confirmed to be 10 times larger than the average oil field worldwide, could boost Israel’s relatively young oil industry and meet domestic energy demands. “There is enormous excitement,” Yuval Bartov, the oil and gas chief geologist for Afek, told Channel 2 News, according to Globes. “It’s a fantastic feeling. We came here thinking maybe yes or maybe no and now things are really happening.” “Against All Odds – Israel Survives” — 13-part DVD series asks the powerful question: Is Israel the place of miracles? Israeli oil companies were searching for oil around the clock, with little success until the latest discovery. It was first announced last month, but the size of the find was only confirmed recently. Afek Oil and Gas is a subsidiary of American company Genie Energy. Since Israel’s founding, companies have drilled 530 exploratory wells in search for oil, but few of them have turned up commercially viable product, The Times of Israel reported.

Netanyahu: Israel ‘in fight to death against Palestinian terror’

PM orders speedy demolition of militants’ homes; Islamic Jihad warns of new attacks Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Sunday Israel was “waging a fight to the death against Palestinian terror”, and ordered tough new measures after the killing of two Israelis in Jerusalem. “These steps include, among others, speeded up demolition of terrorists’ homes,” he said in a video address carried by Israel’s news site Ynet. Netanyahu said he has also instructed to step up administrative detentions, deploy more forces in Jerusalem and in the West Bank and to remove agitators from Jerusalem’s Old City and Temple Mount. “We’re running an all-out war against Palestinian terrorism,” Netanyahu said in a statement after the meeting. “I’ve instructed further measures to prevent terror and deter and punish the terrorists,” he said. The meeting was held shortly after Netanyahu returned to Israel from the UN General Assembly in New York. The four-hour-long discussion was attended by Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon, Public Security Minister Gilad Erdan, Chief of Staff Lt. Gen. Gadi Eisenkot and Shin Bet Chief Yoram Cohen. More attacks The Palestinian Islamic Jihad on Sunday released a propaganda video threatening to infiltrate Israel with a group of fighters and carry out attacks ...

‘Unprecedented’: Jerusalem’s Old City shut down

By -NO AUTHOR- Western Wall JERUSALEM – More than 3,500 police officers are participating in a massive, nearly unprecedented security operation to bar non-Arab residents of Jerusalem’s Old City from entering the ancient walled city for the next 48 hours, Israel Police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld confirmed in a radio interview Sunday. “We’re dealing at the moment with a wave of terror, I would call it. We’re being very careful with ongoing security assessments,” Rosenfeld said on “Aaron Klein Investigative Radio,” speaking live from the streets of Jerusalem’s Old City. Following a series of Palestinian terrorist attacks in and near the Old City in the last 24 hours, the Israeli government took the highly unusual step of only permitting entry into the Old City to “Israeli citizens, Old City residents, tourists, Old City business owners and pupils learning there,” according to a Jerusalem police statement. The measure is being described in Israeli media as “unprecedented.” Rosenfeld confirmed the Old City is entirely closed to all Arab residents of Israel who live outside the city. The move comes as thousands of Jews are entering the Old City to pray at the Western Wall during the Jewish holiday of Simchat Torah, a day ...

Netanyahu stuns with ‘silent’ protest at U.N.

By Jerome R. Corsi UNITED NATIONS – In a dramatic speech to the United Nations General Assembly, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu charged the silence of the world community in the face of the imminent threat posed by Iran gaining nuclear weapons was “deafening.” Netanyahu then paused his speech for an unusually lengthy moment of silence in which he stared from the podium. Television cameras panned to show a General Assembly hall conspicuously absent of many delegations. “Thirty-one years ago as Israel’s ambassador to the United Nations, I stood at this podium for the first time, speaking against a resolution sponsored by Iran to expel Israel from the United Nations,” Netanyahu said, beginning his address. “Then as now, the United Nations was excessively hostile to Israel, the one true democracy in the United States. Some sought to deny the one and only Jewish state a place among the nations,” he said. “I ended that first speech by saying, ‘Gentlemen, check your fanaticism at the door. More than three decades later, as the prime minister of Israel, I am privileged to speak from this podium. For me that privilege has always come with a moral responsibility to speak the truth.” Netanyahu ...

Obama argues for Global Governance in United Nations Address

By Jerome R. Corsi NEW YORK – In an apparent attempt to justify the retreat of the United States from international leadership, President Obama praised the United Nations Monday, arguing that global governance has helped spread democracy. It was his last address to the world body. “There are those who argue the ideals in the U.N. charter are out of date,” Obama said, rejecting arguments that “strong states must impose their will” or that “might makes right” and “order must be imposed by forced.” “We can not look backwards,” he insisted, emphasizing that global integration is an agenda that transcends the narrowly defined interests of nation states. “If we cannot all work together, we will suffer the consequences,” he said. “The United States cannot solve the world’s problems alone, regardless how strong our military is.” He used Iraq to illustrate that U.S. military power is not sufficient to produce cohesion in a divided population. “Unless we work with other nations under the mantle of international law, we will not succeed,” he insisted. He said tyranny around the world cannot succeed when technology opens the world to peoples in oppressed nations. “It is not a conspiracy of U.S.-backed NGOs that produced ...

‘Everywhere you turn,’ people seeking ‘signs or signals’

By -NO AUTHOR- Pastor Mark Biltz, discoverer of the blood moons phenomenon and the author of “Blood Moons: Decoding the Imminent Heavenly Signs,” says Christians are being given signs from the heavens. In Biltz’s opinion, the current sequence of four blood moons – a tetrad – “is a sign for today’s Christians as judgment always begins in the house of God.” “I believe the current blood moons also signal the end of an era,” he said. And Biltz notes there’s something else unique about this tetrad: it’s convergence with biblical holy days. The April 15 event in 2014, for example, happened during Passover. On Oct. 8, 2014, the blood moon occurred during the Feast of Tabernacles, or Sukkot. Another of the blood moon’s occurred during Passover on April 4, 2015. The last will happen on Sept. 28, 2015, another Feast of the Tabernacles. Historically, a tetrad also occurred in 1493, while the Jews were being expelled from Spain. Another tetrad occurred in 1949, soon after the state of Israel was founded. The last tetrad happened in 1967, during the Six-Day War between Arabs and Israelis. Biltz discovered what has become the “blood moon phenomenon” in 2007, researching the correlation between ...

Nuclear Tsunami: ISIS wants to wipe hundreds of millions from face of the earth

ISLAMIC State is a ‘nuclear tsunami’ that wants to wipe hundreds of millions from the face of the earth in the biggest religious holocaust the world has ever seen. By Allan Hall The claim comes from a veteran German journalist who is the only reporter to have been allowed to operate as an ‘embed’ with ISIS and escape alive. Jürgen Todenhöfer, 75, a former MP with Angela Merkel’s CDU party, became a reporter in 2000 and has specialized in war reporting. He spent 10 harrowing days on the ISIS frontline, dodging bullets and death threats, while being chauffeured around by none other than the UK’s own scumbag traitor ‘Jihadi John’ – real name Mohammed Emwazi. Todenhöfer’s conclusions – detailed in a book called ‘Inside IS – Ten Days In The Islamic State’ – make chilling reading. He believes the west cannot militarily defeat the self-styled Caliphate rulers and writes: “The terrorists plan on killing several hundred million people. “The west is drastically underestimating the power of ISIS.” But he said: “This project was opposed by my family for seven months. “My son ultimately accompanied me – against my will. He meant to protect me. And he filmed there.” READ MORE ...

Pope Francis Points to the “Contemplative” “Thomas Merton” in Speech to Congress . . . And the Role This Could Play in a One-World Religion

By Lighthouse Trails Editors LTRP Note: On the morning of September 24th, Lighthouse Trails posted an article by Ray Yungen titled “Contemplative Spirituality – the Source of the Catholic Church’s Expansion” “Coincidentally,” one hour later, Lighthouse Trails was contacted and told that the Catholic Church’s Jesuit Pope Francis talked about Thomas Merton (using the term contemplative to describe him when he addressed Congress. Shortly later, Lighthouse Trails received this letter to the editor below. The fact that Pope Francis referred to Merton (and his “contemplative style”) when talking to Congress and our nation is probably one of the heaviest things we have encountered since beginning Lighthouse Trails 13 years ago.

7 Traits of False Teachers

A false teacher can be anyone in a position of spiritual authority or claimin (Flickr/Creative Commons) g to be. Wolves don’t often attack wolves, but they do go after sheep. They bring destructive teachings and lies into the church, often by telling people what they want to hear (Jer. 23). They provide layers of truth mixed with error, but even a broken clock is right twice a day. Jesus said, “Beware of false prophets who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves. You will know them by their fruit” (Matthew 7:15-16). “Beware” means to be on alert, to discern what is being said. False teachers take advantage of the fact that many people are not well-educated in fundamental biblical truths. To detect a counterfeit, one must first know what the original looks like. It’s impossible to gain a clear picture of absolute truth without going directly to God’s Word. Unless one is firmly grounded in God’s Word and led by His Spirit, one can easily be led astray. Wolves don’t advertise, instead, they “look” like sheep. False teachers aren’t dressed in red holding a pitchfork. They often look the same as everyone else. They subtly ...
