Iran Deplores Clinton Threat
By Israel Faxx News Services
Iran lodged a complaint at the United Nations over Hillary Clinton's threat to destroy
the country if Iran attacked Israel with nuclear weapons. She said last week that if she
won the November election and Iran hit Israel with nuclear weapons during her term in
office, the United States would "totally obliterate" the Islamic Republic.
Iran's deputy ambassador to the UN condemned Clinton's remarks in a letter to
Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon. Mehdi Danesh-Yazdi insisted that Iran has no plans to
attack any other nation, though its president, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, has called for Israel
to be "wiped from the pages of history."
Hamas TV Claims 'Satanic Jews' Planned, Perpetrated Holocaust
Hamas' Al-Aqsa TV aired a documentary on April 18 claiming that Jews planned and
perpetrated the Holocaust in order to rid the nation of the "burden" of the weak and
Palestinian Media Watch, a group that monitors Palestinian Arabic language media and schoolbooks, uploaded part of the program onto YouTube in a segment called "Hamas Holocaust Perversion: Jews Planned Holocaust to Kill Handicapped Jews." (http://youtube.com/watch?v=7WG02QqRYf0)
The Al-Aqsa clip edits together footage from the World War II Nazi genocide, showing
Jews being rounded up and taken to a train as well as emaciated corpses lying in a pile,
alongside images of Israeli leaders David Ben Gurion and Golda Meir.
The accompanying commentary claims that Ben Gurion said "the disabled and handicapped
are a heavy burden on the state." To rid them of that scourge, the video claims, Ben
Gurion and "the Satanic Jews thought up an evil plot to be rid of the burden of disable
and handicapped in twisted criminal ways."
The video also claims that Jews made up the Holocaust and blamed the Nazis for it in
order to "benefit from international sympathy." The Holocaust "was a joke, and part of the
perfect show that Ben Gurion put on," said Amin Dabur, head of the Palestinian Center for
Strategic Research organization, in the video.
Dabur added that the "Jewish plan" focused on developing "strong and energetic youth
[for Israel]," and that the figure of six million Jewish victims is mere propaganda
Court Approves Anti-Israel Independence Day Ceremony
A court in Nazareth has approved a ceremony to be held this coming Independence Day
that will commemorate the "catastrophic" nature of the day for Israel's Arabs.
The Nazareth District Court has allowed the radical anti-Israel Islamic Movement to
conduct a Naqba (Catastrophe) ceremony on Israel's Independence Day, next Thursday. Many
Arabs believe Independence Day actually marks their own Naqba, and commemorate it as
The ruling was handed down Thursday after the authorities of the Arab town of Kfar Kana
refused to allow the ceremony, claiming it was political in nature. The court rejected
this claim, and the anti-Israel ceremony will be held on Independence Day in the Kfar Kana
"Such a decision on the day we remember the Holocaust," said Knesset member Gideon Saar
(Likud), "is shameful, and it shows total Zionism and moral bankruptcy." MK Zevulun Orlev,
chairman of the National Religious Party, agreed, saying, "The court's decision makes a
mockery of the Declaration of Independence, and of Israel as a Jewish and democratic
Saar added, "The Naqba ceremony will most definitely be a stage for incitement against
Israel. It shows that our national authorities have no national respect or
Obama Adviser: Israel Must Give Up its Nukes
Israel should give up its nuclear weapons to ensure Iran halts its illicit nuclear
program, argues an adviser on nuclear issues to Sen. Barack Obama.
Joseph Cirincione, director of nuclear policy at the Center for American Progress, also
previously dismissed reports Israel's Sept. 6 air strike targeted a Syrian nuclear reactor
as "nonsense" and called Damascus' nuclear program "miniscule."
Immediately following Israel's air raid, Cirincione listed "Israelis [who] want to
thwart any dialogue between the U.S. and Syria" as among those spreading rumors Syria was
constructing a nuclear facility. He was commenting on a Sept. 13 Washington Post story
about possible links between Syria and North Korea.
His statements have been circulating around the blogosphere the past few days after the
U.S. government last week released what it said was photographic evidence Syria was
constructing a nuclear reactor with the help of North Korea.
"Once again, this appears to be the work of a small group of officials leaking
cherry-picked, unvetted 'intelligence to key reporters in order to promote a pre-existing
political agenda," Cirincione wrote in September on the blog of Foreign Policy
"If this sounds like the run-up to the war in Iraq, it should. This time it appears
aimed at derailing the U.S.-North Korean agreement that administration hardliners think is
appeasement," Cirincione wrote.
In a September interview with National Public Radio, Cirincione stated "certain
hard-line Israelis who are aimed at preventing a U.S.-Syrian or an Israeli-Syrian
dialogue" were using the Syrian nuclear story to affect talks with Damascus.
He called reports Israel struck a Syrian nuclear site "the most overblown story I've
seen since before the buildup to the war in Iraq. There's precious little information
available, but it hasn't stop people with political agendas from spinning it at such an
absurd level as if these claims are facts."
The Obama adviser characterized Syria's nuclear program as "not amount[ing] to much.
Begun almost 40 years ago, the Syrian program is a rudimentary research program built
around a tiny 30-kilowatt research reactor that produces isotopes and neutrons. Syria does
not have the financial, technical or industrial base to develop a serious nuclear program
anytime in the foreseeable future."
Cirincione's assessment and his claims about false leaks to the media directly
contradict a U.S. government briefing to select congressional committees last week on some
details of the Sept. 6 Israeli airstrike.
The U.S. released video of the targeted Syrian building showing what the CIA said was a
soon-to-be completed nuclear reactor similar to one in Yongbyon, 55 miles north of the
North Korean capital, Pyongyang.
Also, the U.S. released photographs that show what appears to be the inside of the
nuclear reactor and a picture of a Syrian official standing with a well-known nuclear
engineer for the North Korean government.
White House press secretary Dana Perino issued a statement last week explaining the
"Syrian regime was building a covert nuclear reactor in its eastern desert capable of
producing plutonium. We are convinced, based on a variety of information, that North Korea
assisted Syria's covert nuclear activities. We have good reason to believe that reactor,
which was damaged beyond repair on Sept. 6 of last year, was not intended for peaceful
The U.S. statement accused Syria of hiding the reactor from the International Atomic
Energy Agency and said after the Israeli airstrike, Damascus moved quickly to bury
evidence of the reactor's existence.
Even after the U.S. briefings last week, Cirincione held strong to his conspiracy
theories. We should learn first from the past and be very cautious about any intelligence
from the U.S. about other country's weapons," he told the Guardian newspaper last
Cirincione has been described in media reports as a top nuclear advisor to Obama. But
he characterizes his role as writing occasional memos to Obama's campaign. He did not
return phone call requests for an interview with WND.
Minister Uses NASA Forecasting to Study Signals of Jesus' Return
Will Jesus return to Earth in the year 2015? And can studying NASA's website provide
evidence for such a scenario?
A minister who promotes the Old Testament roots of Christianity suggests a rare string
of lunar and solar eclipses said to fall on God's annual holy days seven years from now
could herald what's come to be known as the "Second Coming" of Jesus.
"God wants us to look at the biblical calendar," says Mark Biltz, pastor of El Shaddai
Ministries in Bonney Lake, Wash. "The reason we need to be watching is [because] He will
signal His appearance. But we have to know what to be watching as well. So we need to be
watching the biblical holidays."
In a video interview on the Prophecy in the News website, Biltz said he's been studying
prophecies that focus on the sun and moon, even going back to the book of Genesis where it
states the lights in the sky would be "be for signs, and for seasons. It means a signal,
kind of like 'one if by land, two if by sea.' It's like God wants to signal us," he said.
"The Hebrew word implies ... not only is it a signal, but it's a signal for coming or His
Biltz adds the word "seasons" implies appointed times for God's feasts and festivals.
"When we hear the word feast, we think food. But the Hebrew word has nothing to do with
food. It has to do with a divine appointment, as if God has a day timer, and He says, 'OK,
I'm gonna mark the day and the time when I'm going to signal my appearance.'"
In the Old Testament, the prophet Joel states, "The sun shall be turned into darkness,
and the moon into blood, before the great and the terrible day of the LORD come." (Joel
In the New Testament, Jesus is quoted as saying, "Immediately after the tribulation of
those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light ... And then
shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the
earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power
and great glory." (Matthew 24:29-30)
Gary Stearman of Prophecy in the News noted, "When we think of the sun being darkened
and the moon not giving her light, we usually think of some astronomical catastrophe
perhaps the sun sputtering and the moon being affected by all this. But maybe it's
time to rethink this a little bit and think of it as a natural cycle, the cycle of the
Thus, Biltz began focusing on the precise times of both solar and lunar eclipses,
sometimes called "blood moons" since the moon often takes on a bloody color. He logged
onto NASA's eclipse website which provides precision tracking of the celestial events. He
noted a rare phenomenon of four consecutive total lunar eclipses, known as a tetrad.
He said during this century, tetrads occur at least six times, but what's interesting
is that the only string of four consecutive blood moons that coincide with God's holy days
of Passover in the spring and the autumn's Feast of Tabernacles (also called Succoth)
occurs between 2014 and 2015 on today's Gregorian calendar.
"The fact that it doesn't happen again in this century I think is very significant,"
Biltz explained. "So then I looked at last century, and, believe it or not, the last time
that four blood red moons occurred together was in 1967 and 1968 tied to Jerusalem
recaptured by Israel."
He then started to notice a pattern of the tetrads. "What's significant to me is that
even before 1967, the next time that you had four blood red moons again was right after
Israel became a nation in '48, it happened again in 1949 and 1950 ... on Passover and
Succoth. You didn't have any astronomical tetrads in the 1800s, the 1700s, the 1600s. In
the 1500s, there were six, but none of those fell on Passover and Succoth."
When checking the schedule for solar eclipses, Biltz found two one on the first
day of the Hebrew year and the next on the high holy day of Rosh Hashanah, the first day
of the seventh Hebrew month. Both of these take place in the 2014-2015 year.
He said, "You have the religious year beginning with the total solar eclipse, two weeks
later a total lunar eclipse on Passover, and then the civil year beginning with the solar
eclipse followed two weeks later by another total blood red moon on the Feast of Succoth
all in 2015."
"If you think that this is a coincidence, I want you to know that it's time!" exclaimed
Prophecy in the News host J.R. Church. "There are no more of these for the rest of the
Biltz was also asked about the statement in Matthew 24:36 when Jesus was discussing the
signs of His "coming, and of the end of the world": "But of that day and hour knoweth no
man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only." (Matthew 24:36)
He responded by referring to the annual Feast of Trumpets holiday, saying Israelites
never knew the precise moment it began, "because it was based on the sighting of the new
"When He (Jesus) says you won't know the day or the hour, He's telling you it's the
Feast of Trumpets because that was known as the feast where no one knew the day or the
hour that it would begin," said Biltz. "So it's kind of like if I told you, 'I'm not going
to tell you when I'm coming, but "Gobble, gobble, gobble,'" [pointing to] Turkey Day."
Church stressed despite the information suggesting 2015 could be a pivotal time, "We
don't know that that will be the concluding year of the tribulation period ... so we're
not setting a date and saying this is a warning. We're introducing the possibility of a
Tel Aviv to Honor Gay Holocaust Victims
The city of Tel Aviv will erect a monument in honor of the homosexual victims of the
Nazi Holocaust, Tel Aviv Mayor Ron Huldai announced Thursday. The memorial will be built
in Meir Garden.
Approximately 10,000 homosexual men and women were murdered by the Nazis. The monument
in their memory will consist of a triangle structure made of iron with the victims' names
inscribed in the sides.
