U.S. & China Slowly Creeping Towards Open Conflict

The U.S. State Department has officially issued a level two advisory for travel to China, and U.S. citizens are being warned that they could "be detained" and "subjected to prolonged interrogations and extended detention".  
That sounds extremely ominous, but most Americans typically ignore warnings like this and continue with their normal travel plans anyway.  
However, this time around people might want to take heed, because as you will see below westerners are being grabbed and held indefinitely by China right now.  After Huawei Technologies CFO Meng Wanzhou was grabbed while she was changing planes in Canada on December 1st, the Chinese decided that they could play that game too.  
So if you are planning to travel to China, the truth is that you could very easily become a pawn in a struggle between the world's two largest superpowers.
The following is how it begins...
Exercise increased caution in China due to arbitrary enforcement of local laws as well as special restrictions on dual U.S.-Chinese nationals.

Worldview Wars: First Bisexual Senator With No Religious Affiliation

There's a reason that the first openly bisexual senator did not take her oath on the Bible. There's a reason that an atheist website rebuked me for "misgendering" someone. 
Simply stated, to embrace the God of the Bible means to embrace His standards. To reject the God of the Bible means to reject His standards. Conversely, to reject His standards is to reject Him. This is really not rocket science.
Breitbart reported that, "Newly elected Arizona Sen. Kyrsten Sinema refused to be sworn in on a Bible, opting, instead, to place her right hand on a book of laws, including the U.S Constitution and the Arizona Constitution."
It is no coincidence that she is our first openly bisexual senator as well as the only member of the Senate who has no religious affiliation.
This doesn't mean that she is a terrible person or that she has no moral values at all. And it doesn't mean that she cannot serve the government. Of course not. There is no religious test for leadership either way (in other words, you can't be disqualified for being a Christian or disqualified for not being a Christian).

The Snout-Weevil's Colors: Mimicking God's Art & Engineering

What on earth is a Philippine snout weevil, and what does it have to do with Christian worldview?
It's no exaggeration to say that if it weren't for the amazing design found in nature, much of the best of our modern technologies wouldn't exist. 
Digital Trends documents a whole collection of examples, from bullet trains that mimic the beaks of kingfisher birds, to high-rises that copy the ventilation systems of termite mounds. I'm not kidding. 
The film "Incredible Creatures that Define Design" by my friend Steve Greisen, talks about what's called "biomimicry."
And yet, despite all of our technological achievements, we're not even close to exhausting the riches of engineering and artistry available in nature. One of the most eye-catching examples to emerge in recent months is a tiny insect--a species of beetle known as the Philippine snout weevil.
Full disclosure: I'd never heard of this creature until our BreakPoint editor decided he would enjoy hearing me say "Philippine snout weevil" on the air. But it's worth it.
A recent report in WORLD magazine revealed this miniature marvel's true colors. Literally. You see, this beetle has a series of rainbow spots on its wing casings that do something very rare in nature: They maintain the same color no matter which angle you view them from. 
This has scientists fascinated, not only is this so-called "high-fidelity" color rare in nature, it's nonexistent in human technology. Not a smart phone, laptop, tablet, or HD TV in existence can successfully produce colors that remain true, no matter how you look at them.

The website Optics and Photonics reported on the joint research by a Singaporean-Swiss team who discovered just how the weevil accomplishes this dazzling feat.

New Congresswoman Displays Map With Israel Replaced By 'Palestine'
image: http://prophecynewswatch.com/images/recent/palestinemapjan082019.jpg
News Image BY PNW STAFF JANUARY 08,2019
Share this article: 
Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) displayed a map on her first day in the House of Representatives with a note posted over Israel that reads "Palestine."
Buzzfeed reporter Hannah Allam posted on Twitter, "Someone has already made a slight alteration to the map that hangs in Rashida Tlaib's new congressional office."
This should not come as a surprise. Tlaib has stated she is in Congress to "be a voice" for Palestinians in the West Bank (note: NOT Palestinian-Americans, or her constituents) and even before she was sworn in on Thursday--the ceremony of which was attended by Women's March leader and anti-Israel activist Linda Sarsour, who has been criticized for not condemning her ties with anti-Semitic Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan--Tlaib endorsed the BDS movement.
Since being sworn in she has used expletive curse words to describe the President while demanding his impeachment as well as criticized senators who are trying to pass legislation to strengthen ties with Israel, accusing them of "dual loyalty" and "forgetting what country they represent".
She also recently defended Marc Lamont Hill for comments he made calling for Israel to be eliminated and replaced by "a free Palestine from the river to the sea," a frequent rallying call made by terrorist group Hamas.
So far, other Democrats have remained silent on Tlaib's disgraceful actions. The party's continual shift to the far left makes that no real surprise but it still makes them abetters, enablers -- and equally guilty.

China Prepares To Take On US At Sea With Hypersonic Railgun

News Image BY PNW STAFF JANUARY 04, 2019
Share this article: 
New photos have been released of a Chinese ship with a railgun perched on the bow ready to test it's next generation weapon at sea.  
China's futuristic electromagnetic railgun may already be the most powerful cannon to ever roam the high seas and is ahead of schedule for deployment, beating both the US and Russia in the race to develop such weapons.
In June, a U.S. intelligence assessment estimated that the Chinese military planned on using its own version of the electromagnetic railgun on naval vessels as early as 2025, far outstripping the Pentagon's efforts to develop its own version of the much-hyped supergun.
A railgun is a type of weapon that uses powerful electromagnets to accelerate projectiles to very high speeds.
Conventional weapons typically use explosives or propellant to launch ammunition, but electromagnetic forces make it possible for a railgun to achieve a much higher "muzzle velocity".
This means that while a normal gun might manage a projectile speed of around 2km/s, a railgun could blast out projectiles 50 per cent faster, at at least 3km/s.

BDS Charade: United Church of Christ's 'Divestment' From Israel
image: http://prophecynewswatch.com/images/recent/churchofchristjan042019.jpg
News Image BY DEXTER VAN ZILE/ALGEMEINER.COM JANUARY 04, 2019
Share this article:
It was a charade -- nearly every last word of it.
A few years ago, the United Church of Christ (UCC), a mainline Protestant denomination in the US that regularly condemns Israel while remaining virtually silent about jihadist violence against Christians in places like Iraq, Syria, Egypt, and Nigeria, said it was going to put its money where its mouth was by divesting from Israel. But it hasn't happened.
Four calendar years after enacting a divestment resolution that called on church entities to refrain from owning stock in companies that do business with Israel's defense establishment, the denomination's pension fund is still invested in blacklisted stocks.
Here's the rundown:
In 2015, the UCC's General Synod voted -- with great fanfare -- to divest itself from companies doing business with Israel. In a resolution that passed with 80 percent support, the General Synod accused Israel of, among other things, subjecting Palestinians in Gaza "to military attacks using deadly force beyond that necessary for Israel's acknowledged need for self-defense." 
General Martin Dempsey, Chairman of the US Joint Chiefs of Staff, contradicted this assessment soon after Operation Protective Edge came to an end in 2014, declaring that Israel went to "extraordinary lengths" to avoid civilian casualties during its fight with Hamas. But attendees at the UCC General Synod decided they knew better, and concluded otherwise.
The same resolution called on UCC church bodies -- including the UCC's Pension Boards -- to sell their stocks in companies "profiting from or complicit in human rights violations arising from the occupation of Palestinian Territories by the state of Israel." 
The resolution cited companies by name -- Caterpillar, Motorola, Hewlett-Packard, G4S, and Veolia Environmental. "We are calling and urging all UCC-related entities to stop bringing wood to the fire of this conflict of human rights," said Rev. Richard Edens, a supporter of the divestment resolution at the UCC's 2015 Synod.

Transgender Taboos: Don't Question.. Or Else

Share this article:
There are a growing number of people who transitioned from one gender to the other, only to regret it, and then try to reverse the process. Why aren't we hearing their stories?
Here's a fun fact: the word "taboo" came to the English language from natives on what is now the nation of Tonga. Believe it or not, when British explorer James Cook first visited the remote island, he noticed that certain things, in particular certain foods, were strictly off-limits. When he asked why, they replied these things were "taboo," which meant "consecrated, inviolable, forbidden, unclean or cursed."
Now in English parlance today, we tend to use the word "taboo" as a figure of speech or hyperbole. We don't think of whatever is being referred to as literally being "consecrated," "inviolable," "uncleaned" or "cursed."
Or do we?

In 2019, Israel Faces Dangers On Many Fronts

News Image BY YOAV LIMOR/JNS.ORG JANUARY 04, 2019
Share this article:
The coming year is likely to be one of uncertainty ‎as Israel tries to walk the extremely fine line ‎between the highly volatile potential of conflict on all fronts, ‎and the IDF's clear superiority and ability to ‎generate deterrence.‎
Ostensibly, Israel has to strive to avoid a wide-‎scale conflict in 2019. This should be ‎doable as each foe, in every sector, currently has ‎far more pressing issues to deal with: Syria is reeling from a ‎bloody, seven-year civil war; Hezbollah is knee-deep ‎in financial problems and internal Lebanese ‎political turmoil; Hamas is trying to improve the ‎dire economic situation in the Gaza Strip; and the ‎Palestinian Authority in the West Bank is focused on ‎trying to make heads or tails of the impending post-Mahmoud Abbas era. ‎
Add to that Israel's military power, and one can ‎understand why Israel's enemies are wary of ‎confrontation. Still, logic does not always prevail ‎in the Middle East, and each sector harbors a ‎significant chance of rapid ‎escalation, especially as all are under the menacing ‎specter of Iran, which is trying to increase its ‎regional influence.‎
This means that the Israeli challenge will be, first, ‎to avoid war; second, to win a war should one erupt; ‎and third, perhaps most important, to both ‎prevent Iran from entrenching itself militarily in ‎Syria and stop Hezbollah's armament efforts in ‎Lebanon, especially with respect to the Shiite ‎terrorist group's precision-missile program.‎
Israel will also have to carefully navigate its ‎policy in Gaza to ensure the desperation there does ‎not worsen, and equal prudence will be required in ‎the West Bank, where fighting terrorism while ‎minimizing the infringement on the civilian ‎Palestinian population's routine is crucial to ‎preventing another intifada. ‎

Falling Into Place: Top 10 Bible Prophecy-Related Stories Of 2018

News Image BY JAN MARKELL/OLIVE TREE VIEWS JANUARY 03, 2019
Share this article:  
Almost one-third of the Bible relates to eschatology or Bible prophecy. I think we can conclude that a lot of what is happening today foreshadows "things to come."
Here are my observations on activities that relate to Bible prophecy in 2018. I am just discerning the times, not engaging in newspaper exegesis. I encourage everyone to be like the sons of Issachar in I Chronicles 12, who understood the times.
Some of the predicted signs will manifest in the Church Age. Most are Tribulation events that are casting a giant shadow today.
1. Nationalism is Scorned and Globalism is Celebrated
Globalism took center stage in 2018, so much so that President Donald Trump stuck it to the globalists by once against stating that he is a nationalist.  
Additionally, Europe is reeling. The yellow-jacket rioters are stirring up trouble thanks to the globalists as they move from country to country, destabilizing Europe. Europe almost needs a savior.  France's Emmanuel Macron keeps making astounding one-world statements, including wanting to offer Israel a peace plan.  If the Antichrist is to come out of Europe, that continent is preparing the way for him.
The globalists will recover as they will get their "paradise" during the 7-year Tribulation. This year they even enlisted entertainer Celine Dion to seduce children with New World Order children's clothing.  They are desperate. Donald Trump is the disrupter-in-chief. Disrupter of the New World Order.

Globalists Plan Migration As Human Right & To Criticize Will Become Hate Speech

It is a strange time to be a citizen in a Western democracy. Our society is based on exchange -- we transact in the free market, we share ideas online, and most significantly we give up some of our natural liberty in exchange for a civil society and a vote.
But increasingly, the freedoms supposed to be protected by civil society are being eroded away. At the level of the individual, our freedom of speech is under attack. Criticism of migration is apparently about to become "hate speech" and a prosecutable offence.
When the authority of the nation state is ceded to a supra-national body, such as the United Nations, our power as citizens is diluted.
Based on the contractual theory of society and the works of Hobbes, Locke and Rousseau from the 17th and 18th century, real power is supposed to sit with the people; in order to retain moral character, government must thus rest on the consent of the governed, or the volonté générale ("general will"):
"What man loses by the social contract is his natural liberty and an unlimited right to everything he tries to get and succeeds in getting; what he gains is civil liberty and the proprietorship of all he possesses." (Jean-Jacques Rousseau, On the Social Contract)

Children Abusing Children: The Sexual Revolution's Latest Victims

News Image BY JOHN STONESTREET/BREAKPOINT.ORG JANUARY 03, 2019
Share this article:
It's never harmless; for those who produce it, for those who consume it, or for the growing number of children abused because of it.
According to a recent news report, parents today have far worse things to worry about than black eyes and bloody noses on the playground, or their kids learning cuss words from their friends, or their kids failing geometry.
Reporters at Kansas City television station KSHB recently interviewed doctors and nurses at Children's Mercy Hospital. This is a hospital that sees 1,000 children each year who have been sexually assaulted. Heidi Olson, a nurse there who treats these victims, said she was shocked at what the data has told them: "almost half of our perpetrators are minors" between the ages of eleven and fifteen. 
You heard that right. We have an epidemic now of children abusing children.
Little girls between the ages of four and eight are the most likely victims. As the father of three young girls, this is hard to stomach. But it gets worse. According to Jennifer Hanson, a child abuse pediatrician at Mercy, many of these assaults "include physical violence in addition to sexual violence."
A major factor, unsurprisingly, in the victimization of these children is something we are often told is "harmless": pornography. Often, according to Mercy nurses, the young victims are forced to view porn, others forced to act out something portrayed in a pornographic video, and others are recorded in a sexual act.

Threat To Israel's Northern Border Is Deeper Than Hezbollah's Tunnels
image: http://prophecynewswatch.com/images/recent/hezbollahmarch152016.jpg
News Image BY ISRAEL KASNETT/JNS.ORG JANUARY 03, 2019    
Hezbollah had a bad end to the year.
Israel just discovered and neutralized a fifth tunnel crossing into its territory, and the Israel Defense Forces is likely to discover even more. It looks like Hezbollah's "Radwan" force--the terrorist unit trained to infiltrate Israel--will not find it easy to capture Israeli communities in the next war. The army blew up two tunnels and flooded others to expose the entry points on the Lebanese side.
Sure enough, when the IDF pumped a mixture of cement and water into the tunnel's exit point on the Israeli side, the mixture began to pour out of a number of places, including a private home in the Lebanese village of Kila, just over a mile from the Israeli town Metula.
Hezbollah continues to use civilians as a cover for its terrorist activities, in blatant violation of the Geneva Accords and of U.N. Resolution 1701. As of this writing, UNIFIL and the Lebanese army have refused to act even after Israel presented them with the evidence.
Uzi Rabi, director of the Moshe Dayan Center for Middle Eastern and African Studies at Tel Aviv University, told JNS  that Israel should turn this saga into a diplomatic front through which to set the stage for a preventative attack on missile bases in Lebanon. 
"At the same time, Israel should stress that by digging the tunnels, Hezbollah violated U.N. Security Council Resolution 1701, and even if it is not echoed in U.N. denunciation, to keep saying that as an argument for a forthcoming attack on Hezbollah," he said.
image: http://prophecynewswatch.com/images/ads/TCC_banner1.jpg
According to Rabi, Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah is staying relatively silent as he waits to see to what extent Israel is aware of the tunnels. "It seems he is advised by the [Iran] Revolutionary Guards to stay put," said Rabi, "especially as the American position of pulling out troops from Syria seems to be really significant for that matter."
Hezbollah has no problem receiving information. Israel's Ambassador to the United Nations, Danny Danon, said last week that information on the tunnels that Israel had provided to UNIFIL was then passed on to the Lebanese Army, which, in turn, passed it on to Hezbollah.

The Issues For 2019: Looking Ahead
image: http://prophecynewswatch.com/images/recent/2019jan02019.jpg
News Image BY JOHN STONESTREET/BREAKPOINT.ORG JANUARY 02, 2019
Well, 2018 is in the rear-view mirror, but the issues and challenges it brought are still very much with us. 
Especially for Christians who are serious about understanding and engaging the culture, here are four issues that merit special attention.
The first is the ongoing and intensifying conflict between LGBT rights and religious freedom, especially here in the U. S. Even as I write this, U.S. Senator Mike Lee is holding up the re-nomination of Chai Feldblum to head the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.
Lee's reason is simple: Feldblum has been crystal clear that, in her mind, there's not a single scenario where religious freedom should prevail over LGBT rights.
Even if Feldblum's nomination fails, Jack Phillips still faces new charges of discrimination by the Colorado Civil Rights Commission, and rumor has it that Nancy Pelosi may push forward the Equality Act in the House this year. And that's just the beginning. 
In fact, 2019 might be the year Christians ought to get serious about developing that "theology of getting fired." That is, it's time for us to decide when losing our jobs and livelihoods for refusing to go along with the new sexual orthodoxy is exactly what Jesus expects of us.

Iran Sees A New Opportunity To Build A War Machine To Encircle Israel
image: http://prophecynewswatch.com/images/recent/iranvsisraelmarch14.jpg
News Image BY YAAKOV LAPPIN/JNS.ORG JANUARY 02, 2019 
If it goes ahead, Iran likely will view U.S. President Donald Trump's decision to withdraw American forces from eastern Syria as a green light to build a new war machine in the region.
But Iran also received a red light recently, apparently reminding it that Israel is standing guard against Tehran's takeover plans.
That red light came on Dec. 25 in the form of an alleged Israeli airstrike on an Iranian weapons' depot in Syria. The strike looks like the latest signal of Israel's determination to block Iran's path into Syria, with or without an American ground presence.
According to media reports, including a report by the Israeli satellite-image company ISI, the strike destroyed a warehouse that contained Iranian Fajr-5 rockets. The warehouse was just 40 kilometers, about 25 miles, away from Israel.
Israel's military says Fajr-5 rockets are produced in Iranian weapons factories and have a range of 75 kilometers, or just under 50 miles. In past years, Iran smuggled these types of rockets to terrorist organizations that are ideologically committed to attacking Israel, including Hezbollah in Lebanon and Hamas in the Gaza Strip. Now, Iran is trying to flood Syria with them.
So far, the Fajr-5s that have been in the inventory of Israel's enemies were unguided rockets. That does not stop them from posing a serious threat. Hamas fired a Fajr-5 rocket in November 2012 in the midst of an eight-day conflict, severely damaging an apartment building in Rishon Letzion, south of Tel Aviv. Residents survived due to an air-raid siren, which sent them scurrying into a safe room before the rocket struck.
In February 2017, reports emerged saying that Iran's defense industry has begun manufacturing a new, guided version of the Fajr-5.

Venezuelans Prepare For Chinese Big Brother Biometric ID/Social Credit System
image: http://prophecynewswatch.com/images/recent/fatherlandjan022018.jpg
News Image BY ALEXIS FABER/ACTIVIST POST JANUARY 02, 2019  
The Venezuelan government continues to tighten its grip on people's data and communications and has now partnered with Chinese company ZTE to develop a national biometric identification similar to China's social credit system.
When Reuters revealed in November 2018 that the Venezuelan government had contracted with the Chinese company ZTE to develop a national biometric identification system, public reactions were mixed.
The report stirred outrage both in Venezuela and internationally. But for those who have closely followed the Venezuelan government as it has tightened its grip on people's data and communications, the report represented another chapter in what has become a very long story.
The report confirmed suspicions and denunciations made months ago, increasing fears that the alliance with ZTE will bring Venezuela closer to the implementing a form of social credit score system similar to what is used in China. This system would determine which citizens have access to basic services based on their political allegiances. It also prompted the US government to initiate investigations into the role of ZTE in Venezuela.
What is the Fatherland Card Used For?
The Reuters story pointed to the participation of ZTE  in the development of a monitoring system whose primary tool is the "Carnet de la Patria", or Fatherland Card. This identification card captures multiple pieces of personal data coupled with a unique and personalized QR code. It also serves as a digital wallet within an electronic payment system.

What If The Six-Day War Never Took Place?

If the "West Bank" was part of the "Hashemite Kingdom" up to 1967, how did it suddenly become the Palestinians' long-yearned-for homeland which, up until then, they were submissively willing to cede to an alien potentate?
Not since the time of Dr. Goebels [head of the Nazi propaganda machine] has there ever been a case in which continual repetition of a lie has born such great fruits. ... Of all the Palestinian lies, there is no lie greater or more crushing than that which calls for the establishment of a separate Palestinian state in the West Bank. -- From "Palestinian Lies" in Haaretz, 30-7-76, by former far-left Meretz Education Minister, Professor Amnon Rubinstein.
As the new elections approach, the "Palestinian problem" is once again likely to dominate much of the inter- (and intra-) party debate. In many ways, this debate is entirely superfluous. After all, a simple mental experiment will suffice to strip away the veil of mendacity shrouding the Palestinian grievances against Israel.
Imagine for a moment ...
To demonstrate this, imagine for a moment that the 1967 Six-Day War, in which several Arab armies marshalled their forces with the undisguised intention to annihilate Israel, never took place. Imagine that Israel had not been compelled to launch a preemptive strike in self-defense to thwart the Arabs' openly proclaimed aim of total genocide that resulted in it taking over Judea-Samaria (aka, the "West Bank"), which the Palestinians now contend is their long-yearned for homeland.
Then ask yourself: If that war had not occurred, where would "Palestine" be?

Chrislam Invades Christmas - Mixing Muslim & Christian Stories Of Jesus Birth
image: http://www.prophecynewswatch.com/images/recent/chrislamdec242018.jpg
News Image BY PNW STAFF DECEMBER 24, 2018 
The mantra that "we all worship the same god" has been taken a step further by First United Methodist Church at the Chicago Temple by hosting a new play called "Christmas Mubarak," mixing Christian and Muslim stories of Jesus' birth.
Rather than Jesus being born as the incarnate Son of God, the baby actually speaks and announces he's a prophet. Similarly, Joseph is not depicted as Mary's fiance, but rather as a cousin and the play describes prophecies about Jesus' return, though Muslims do not believe, as Christians do, that Jesus was crucified, died and rose from the dead.
Though the play's directors say "Christmas Mubarak" is "a wonderful way for both Muslim and Christian to refresh their understanding of the story," this is nothing short of blasphemy. It perverts the story of Jesus' birth; it doesn't refresh it. No prophet could save people from their sins. Only the incarnate Son of God could do that. That any Christian church would participate in this play is disgraceful.
However this is not the first time a church has embraced what is often referred to as "Chrislam", the term used to suggest that Christianity and Islam share similar beliefs and as such are compatible. Those Christian churches that have so blurred the differences and distinctions between Christianity and Islam are on the rise and the next generation of youth seems to be ready to endorse such beliefs despite Christianity and Islam being diametrically opposed on the most important of issues - the identity of Jesus Christ. 
True Christianity declares Jesus to be God incarnate. For Christians, the deity of Christ is a non-negotiable, for without His deity, Jesus death on the cross would not have been sufficient to be the atoning sacrifice for the sins of the entire world (1 John 2:2).
Islam adamantly rejects the deity of Christ. The Quran declares the idea that Jesus is God to be blasphemy (5:17). Belief in the deity of Christ is considered shirk (filth) to Muslims. Further, Islam denies the death of Christ on the cross (4:157-158). 
The most crucial doctrine of the Christian faith is rejected in Islam. As a result, the two religions are absolutely not compatible, making Chrislam a concept both Christians and Muslims should reject.

It Go Boom: Sodom, Pontius Pilate, & Archaeology

A modern verification of an ancient event and tangible evidence of an ancient person. And once again, biblical history is verified.
Our team of thinkers and writers at the Colson Center are archaeology nerds.  Seriously, we get giddy whenever another archaeological discovery sheds light on biblical narratives or confirms their historical accuracy. And even more fun, it seems to happen all the time these days.
Keep in mind that biblical faith is grounded in historical events, events to which the Bible testifies. This is one of the factors that sets the Bible apart from other religious texts. Recently, two announcements made illustrate the truthfulness of Scripture, one in a spectacular way and the other more quietly.
The spectacular illustration was the subject of a recent presentation at the annual meeting of the American Schools of Oriental Research, held here in Colorado. At the meeting, Archaeologist Phillip J. Silva of Trinity Southwest University reported on what his team found in Jordan just north of the Dead Sea.
"Samples from the site show that an extremely hot, explosive event," in all likelihood an exploding meteor, "leveled an area of almost 200 square miles including the Middle Ghor - a circular plain to the north of the Dead Sea." The blast not only destroyed "100 percent of the Middle Bronze Age cities and towns" in the area, it rendered the area unsuitable for agriculture for about six centuries.
Now unless you dig things blowing up, you might be wondering "What's the big deal?" After all, in 1908 a similar blast in Siberia leveled more than 500 square miles.
image: http://www.prophecynewswatch.com/images/ads/TCC_banner1.jpg
Well, what makes this "extremely hot" event extremely cool is the location and the date. Silvan and his team are convinced the site of "the explosive event" is the biblical Sodom and Gomorrah, and that it occurred around 3,700 years ago, which is about the same time that Abraham and his nephew Lot were sojourning in the area.
While Silva's discovery can't tell us whether, in Forbes' words, "someone, perhaps a deity, [ordered] an asteroid hit on Sodom," it's yet another reminder that the biblical writers were not making things up. They purposely wrote of historical events that took place in the real world, not in some mythical setting.

Amazon's Creepy Facial Recognition Doorbell Will Surveil The Entire Neighborhood

Share this article:   
At first glance of Amazon's new patent application, one would be tempted to think it no more than a built-in "smart" security system.
But no, this facial recognition surveillance doorbell does a lot more than record would-be thieves.
Ding! Dong! Prepare to be downright disturbed.
According to a new report, the patent application, made available in late November, would pair facial surveillance such as Rekognition, the product that Amazon is aggressively marketing to law enforcement, with Ring - a doorbell camera company that Amazon acquired in 2018.
CNN writes,
Amazon's application says the process leads to safer, more connected neighborhoods, as well as better informed homeowners and law enforcement.
Yeah, that's one way of putting it. Here's another:
Amazon is dreaming of a dangerous future, with its technology at the center of a massive decentralized surveillance network, running real-time facial recognition on members of the public using cameras installed in people's doorbells. - 
Jacob Snow, ACLU
This tech isn't really there to protect your house or neighborhood.
It's going to record all who walk by and gather composite images and recordings that can be stored in the Cloud and accessed by law enforcement to help surveil and catch suspects.
One of the main problems - besides the obvious privacy violations and smashing the 4th Amendment to smithereens - is that facial recognition has been abysmal so far. That means if a database determines you are a suspect because you bear a striking resemblance, then the police could show up and detain you before you even drop off the potato salad to your next potluck.
Snow writes:
While the details are sketchy, the application describes a system that the police can use to match the faces of people walking by a doorbell camera with a photo database of persons they deem "suspicious." Likewise, homeowners can also add photos of "suspicious" people into the system and then the doorbell's facial recognition program will scan anyone passing their home. In either case, if a match occurs, the person's face can be automatically sent to law enforcement, and the police could arrive in minutes.
It would be far to easy to get yourself on a "list" with this technology
image: http://www.prophecynewswatch.com/images/ads/TCC_banner1.jpg
CNN reports:
The application describes creating a database of suspicious persons. Unwanted visitors would be added to the list when a homeowner tags them as not authorized. Other people could be added to the database because they are a convicted felon or registered sex offender, according to the application. Residents may also alert neighbors of a suspicious person's presence.

Are We Really "Shocked" Over Gene Editing? Should Have Seen This Coming
image: http://www.prophecynewswatch.com/images/recent/genedec212018.jpg
News Image BY JOHN STONESTREET/BREAKPOINT.ORG DECEMBER 24, 2018  
The inventors of CRISPR are alarmed that the gene-editing technology is being used to . . . edit genes? Really?
In late November, the MIT Technology Review broke the news that a Chinese scientist, He Jiankui, used the gene-editing technology known as CRISPR to genetically modify human embryos.
The embryos were then implanted, and earlier this year a pair of twin girls named Lulu and Nana were born.
At least that's He's story. No one is 100 percent certain it actually happened. After all, there have been bogus claims of this magnitude before, most famously in 2004 when a South Korean researcher falsely claimed to have successfully cloned human embryonic stem cells.
Despite their doubts, most geneticists have denounced He's reported actions, calling them, among other things, "profoundly disturbing" and "monstrous."
While the assessment is correct, I'm struggling to believe their professed shock.  It brings to mind a scene from the movie "Casablanca" when Captain Renault declares that he is "shocked, shocked to find there is gambling going on in here" even as he accepts an envelope with his share of the take.
According to reports, He used CRISPR to deactivate a gene known as CCR5, "which the HIV virus uses as a doorway for infiltrating human cells." The stated goal was to render "the offspring resistant to HIV, smallpox, and cholera."

The Top 5 Prophetic Trends of 2018
image: http://prophecynewswatch.com/images/recent/hourglassdec312018.jpg

News Image BY BRITT GILLETTE/END TIMES BIBLE PROPHECY DECEMBER 31, 2018  
The number one sign of the Second Coming of Jesus Christ is the convergence of all the signs He said to look for. Jesus said, "When you see all these things take place, look up! Your salvation draws near" (Luke 21:28). 
What are the things Jesus and the prophets said to look for? Israel back in the land (Jeremiah 23:7-8)... The Jewish people back in control of Jerusalem (Luke 21:24)... The Gospel being preached to the whole world (Matthew 24:14)... And more... Today, we see these signs. Because we do, we can be confident we live in the season of His return. 
But Jesus cited other signs too. So did the prophets. And we see those signs as well. As 2018 draws to a close, what are the biggest prophetic trends we see? Below is a list of what I believe are the top 5:
1) The Rise of the Gog of Magog Alliance
2018 saw a continuation of the recent developing alliance between Russia, Iran, and Turkey. Russia and Iran have grown closer and closer since the mid-1990s. Their joint occupation of Syria in the aftermath of the Syrian civil war has only brought further cooperation. Yet, as recently as 2015, Turkey looked like an adversary of both nations. 
In November of that year, Turkey shot down a Russian jet that strayed into its airspace. Far from allies, the two nations looked more like they were on the verge of war than friendship. But things have since changed. Turkish President Erdogan has consolidated his grip on power. He now antagonizes the United States while making friendly visits with Vladimir Putin.
Pursuing its own interests, Turkey is now a major player in the Syrian conflict. Along with Russia and Iran, they've effectively carved Syria into various spheres of influence. The result is a once unlikely alliance formed on Israel's northern border. These are the very same nations Ezekiel said would invade Israel from the north in "the latter days" (Ezekiel 38:8).
Iran has been belligerent toward Israel for decades. Now, Russia and Turkey are too. Russia blames Israel for a September 17 incident that led to Syrian forces downing a Russian spy plane. In May, Turkey told Israeli ambassador Eitan Naeh to leave the country. Since then, more Israeli officials have left Turkey, and the Turkish consul general has been expelled from Israel. Israeli relations with all three countries are suffering a clear downtrend.
2) The Continued Rise of Artificial Intelligence

Will Israeli-Iranian Shadow War Trigger Ezekiel 38?

News Image BY YAAKOV LAPPIN/JNS.ORG DECEMBER 31, 2018
 It didn't take long for the recent Israeli Air Force strikes on Iranian or Hezbollah targets in the Damascus area to receive Russian condemnation.
Russia issued a public rebuke to Israel, accusing it of conducting "provocative" attacks. The Russians also claimed to reveal operational details about the airstrikes, saying that six Israeli F-16 jets fired missiles at targets in Syria from Lebanese airspace.
According to the spokesman for Russia's Defense Ministry, the strikes endangered two civilian airliners that were on their way to land at airports in Damascus and Beirut. The spokesman claimed that Syrian air defense intercepted most of the Israeli missiles--a claim that remains unverified, and which could be part of a face-saving effort on behalf of the Assad regime.
These comments reflect a wider Russian frustration over its failure to end a shadow Israeli-Iranian war that continues to rage in Syria. It is a low-profile conflict, mostly fought away from the headlines, in which Israel is playing an active defense against Iran's offensive attempt to set up a war outpost in Syria. Hundreds of Iranian targets in Syria have been destroyed in the past 18 months alone.
Iran seeks to create weapons factories, missile bases and a Shi'ite army of 100,000 fighters in Syria, while Israel has no intention of letting it succeed. Iran's tendency of using Syria as a transit zone for moving advanced weapons to Hezbollah, in neighboring Lebanon, is also a violation of an Israeli red line, which has triggered many reported airstrikes in the past.
This shadow conflict is a threat to the stability of the Bashar Assad regime. While the regime has no desire to get involved in a war with Israel and would rather focus on reconstruction, it is forced to issue "permits" to Iranian activities since Assad owes his existence to Tehran.

All The Cool Girls Are Transitioning: An Epidemic Of Teenage Gender Confusion

Peer pressure almost never pushes teenagers to good places. Recently, it's been pushing them to the gender clinic.
We've all seen teenagers--especially girls--adopt new fashions en masse. Their friends are doing it, so they do too. It's true of music, clothes, those ridiculous, furry Ugg boots... But lately, fashion-conscious teens are changing much more than their clothes.
The Economist recently reported a flood of adolescent girls seeking treatment for gender dysphoria over the last eight years. In 2009, less than half--41  percent--of teens walking through the doors of gender clinics in the U.K. were female. But by 2017, that number jumped to almost 70 percent.
Now, if gender dysphoria--feeling yourself to be the opposite gender from your biological sex--were actually something innate to the human condition as trans activists claim, we'd expect these numbers to remain consistent and roughly balanced between boys and girls. But they're not. According to Dr. Lisa Littman, who teaches behavioral and social sciences at Brown University, transgender identity, like Ugg boots, has become a trend.
According to Littman, droves of adolescents, with no prior history of gender confusion, are suddenly announcing they're transgender after "immersing themselves in niche websites," or "after similar announcements from friends."
Littman surveyed 256 parents of children who experienced what she terms "rapid-onset gender dysphoria." The results were astonishing: 87 percent of teenagers who suddenly came out as transgender did so after spending a great deal more time than usual online or after "cluster outbreaks" of gender dysphoria among their friends.

To put it simply, these kids wanted to transition because "everyone's doing it."

China's Pastors Take Their Stand: Jesus Is Lord

I want you to meet some brave Christian leaders pledging their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honor.
When thinking of the golden age of the Church, many of us hearken back to the book of Acts, when Peter and John stood up to the religious authorities, who told them to be silent about Jesus the risen Messiah. "Whether it is right in the sight of God to listen to you rather than to God," they answered, "you must judge, for we cannot but speak of what we have seen and heard." Then they prayed for boldness, and the Church exploded across much of the ancient world.
But there's a golden age for the church going on right now--with the same kind of courage, persecution, and Spirit-empowered growth. Where is it? In communist China.
World missions historians tell us that when all the foreign missionaries were kicked out of Mao's China a few years after the Second World War, there were probably no more than 3 million believers in Jesus Christ in the whole, vast nation. 
But today, seven decades later, the Pew Forum on Religion and Public Life counts 67 million Christians of all kinds--35 million independent Protestants, 23 million Protestants in government-sanctioned churches, and 9 million Catholics. Other estimates go even higher.
Whatever the true number is, it's almost as many as there are members of the Communist Party! Maybe that's why the government is cracking down on Christians. According to Christianity Today and other news outlets, Under President Xi Jinping, China's government has been tightening its grip on religious affairs.

Middle East Christians Look To Israel As Last Refuge From Islamic Radicals
image: http://prophecynewswatch.com/images/recent/israelcrossmarch212016.jpg
News Image BY SEAN SAVAGE/JNS.ORG DECEMBER 27, 2018 
Despite the success of U.S.-led coalition forces against the Islamic State, Christians in the Middle East run the risk of "imminent extinction" due to the "threat of violence, murder, intimidation, prejudice and poverty," the Archbishop of Canterbury recently warned.
Amid their struggles, Middle East Christians and other religious minorities received a boost in recent weeks with the signing into law by U.S. President Donald Trump of the Iraq and Syria Genocide Relief and Accountability Act, which provides humanitarian relief to genocide victims in Iraq and Syria, and holds accountable Islamic State perpetrators of genocide.

Pastor John Hagee, founder and chairman of Christians United for Israel, who has been outspoken on the need for the United States to do more to aid Middle East Christians, applauded the law.
"My sincere hope is that through this bill, American assistance will aid those religious groups that suffered so horrendously under the Islamic State, and American and foreign authorities will go after those responsible for the horrors committed by the Islamic State," he told JNS.

"I don't know that we can ever say that enough has been done to make up for what these people endured, but this is a good step by the Trump administration," he added.
Robert Nicholson, executive director of the Philos Project, said that "the long and arduous work of getting this law passed was worth every bit of effort it took. It's impossible to fully heal the Christians and other minorities who were persecuted by Islamic State, but this law goes a long way toward starting the process."

Tricia Miller, a senior research analyst and Christian expert for CAMERA, told JNS that the new law will boost support for relief groups, including faith-based ones, who had been only relying on private donations until now.
"The U.S. government is now authorized to fund organizations, including faith-based groups, that are on the ground in Iraq and Syria, and are strategically positioned to provide aid to Christians and other minorities who have been terrorized by the Islamic State."
Edward Clancy, director of evangelization and outreach for the charity organization Aid to the Church in Need, told JNS that the law is a good "first step."
His organization, which has been on the ground in Iraq helping the beleaguered Christian community there, said the law needs to "deliver on its promise to provide aid directly to Christians and other minorities."
Iraq has 'lost 75 percent of its Christian population'

Christian Zionists Deeply Concerned Trump Ultimate Deal Will Split Jerusalem
image: http://prophecynewswatch.com/images/recent/trumpjerusalemdec012017.jpg
News Image BY DANIEL PIPES/JNS.ORG DECEMBER 27, 2018
Writing in Al-Monitor, Ben Caspit has leaked reported details of the Trump administration's "ultimate deal" to resolve the Palestinian-Israeli conflict.
Caspit writes that the Trump plan "includes a clear partition of Jerusalem into three sections," and quotes an anonymous "senior diplomatic source" as saying, "It is not about a Palestinian capital in Abu-Dis (a Palestinian village in the Jerusalem governance area) but in significant sections of east Jerusalem." 
He writes that according to this source, there will be two capitals in Jerusalem: the Israeli capital in western Jerusalem and the Jewish neighborhoods of eastern Jerusalem, including the Western Wall -- and the capital of Palestine in the Arab parts of eastern Jerusalem. A third region, within the Holy Basin, would be under international control.
"Interesting if true" should be our first response, since prior leaks have proved to be inaccurate. But let us suppose that this anonymous senior diplomatic source knows of what he speaks. What then?
The idea of putting any area "under international control" curiously harks back to the 1947 UN partition plan's ill-fated, but enduring notion of Jerusalem as a corpus separatum. In other words, it is anachronistic. 
The idea is also wildly dangerous: Imagine placing one of the world's most sensitive locations under the control of the UN General Assembly or the Middle East Quartet. Their inevitable mischief could well set off the next round of fighting.
image: http://prophecynewswatch.com/images/ads/TCC_banner1.jpg
The reported Trump plan would wrestle away sovereign areas of Israel and hand them to the Palestinians. Doing so rewards the Palestinians, despite their fulfilling basically none of their prior commitments dating back to the Oslo Accords of 1993, thereby encouraging further Palestinian bad behavior (including more terrorism).
Making eastern Jerusalem into the capital of Palestine implies that the US government recognizes a "State of Palestine." Donald Trump's remarks over the past year suggest that he is likely to demand that the government of Israel recognize this state too, which would set off a huge debate in Israel.
This state of Palestine will reportedly include parts of Jerusalem and, presumably, most of the West Bank and all of the Gaza Strip. Where the borders should run in the first two areas will drive a massive argument. A second will follow when the Palestinians, inevitably, decide that Palestine includes all of Israel too.
In addition, as Caspit points out, a proposal to divide Israel into three will roil Israeli politics and harm Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who will no longer be able to satisfy both his nationalist base and the US president.
As in other cases where Trump follows his instincts against the Republican consensus (imposing tariffs, pulling troops from Syria), the far left-wing of the Democratic Party will (very faintly) applaud. This time, so will the European Union.
In contrast, many of Trump's Israeli and Zionist admirers, including evangelical Christians, will be shocked by his proposal and lash out. Given prior patterns (tariffs and Syria), one can confidently predict what would happen next: Trump will respond angrily and double down, vaporizing the US-Israel honeymoon of the past two years.

Another week... another example of how physician-assisted suicide targets the vulnerable. This time: Asperger's patients.
In 2010, 38-year-old Tine Nys was one of approximately 1,000 people euthanized in Belgium. Nys was not suffering from a terminal illness. In fact, she wasn't sick at all.
As I've mentioned before on BreakPoint, despite how it's sold around the world, inevitable death isn't a requirement for euthanasia in Belgium. The standard for eligibility is "unbearable and untreatable suffering," which has come to include psychological suffering. 
Between 2005 and 2014, 124 people diagnosed with a "mental and/or behavioral disorder" were euthanized in Belgium. These included conditions such as depression and dementia.
But in Nys case, it's wasn't even clear she was "suffering" at all, much less in an "unbearable and untreatable" sense. Nys had been diagnosed with Asperger's Syndrome, a mild form of autism.

China Now Tracking Children With "Smart" Tech Uniforms
image: http://prophecynewswatch.com/images/recent/techuniformsdec272018.jpg
News Image BY NICHOLAS WEST/ACTIVIST POST DECEMBER 27, 2018
If there is any country on Earth that is most emblematic of the rising governance model that is Technocracy, it is China.  The many pieces to this structure have included much of what we see emerging in the U.S. with pervasive surveillance, biometrics and a notion of protecting the public by instituting pre-crime algorithms in police departments and travel. 
So, in many ways, China is the very large canary in the coal mine for anyone who wishes to attempt to slow the rapidity of our slide down the slippery slope toward scientific totalitarianism.
As I covered previously, China put the world on notice back in April that it was declaring full ownership over the brains of its workers and military with the imposition of brain-reading sensors in their respective hats, caps and helmets in order to determine efficiency and safety patterns, as well as general mental state.
Concealed in regular safety helmets or uniform hats, these lightweight, wireless sensors constantly monitor the wearer's brainwaves and stream the data to computers that use artificial intelligence algorithms to detect emotional spikes such as depression, anxiety or rage.
The technology is in widespread use around the world but China has applied it on an unprecedented scale in factories, public transport, state-owned companies and the military to increase the competitiveness of its manufacturing industry and to maintain social stability.
The Chinese government acknowledges that workers expressed initial concern over the perception that they were having their minds read, but after some acclimation "they got used to the device. It looked and felt just like a safety helmet. They wore it all day at work." Future plans include use for flight operators in airline cockpits, but it "means the pilots may need to sacrifice some of their privacy for the sake of public safety."

In the meantime, a new initiative is paving the way for training the next generation that this type of surveillance is completely normal: school uniforms equipped with tracking chips to supposedly fight truancy. Here we can see an integration of the range of surveillance tech that is at the disposal of technocrats everywhere, including the United States. 
The uniforms use chips to monitor the location of students and can record their exit and entry into school, according to the tech firm behind the tracking devices.

China, Russia Advance Hypersonic Missile Programs That Can Beat US Defenses
image: http://prophecynewswatch.com/images/recent/russiachinaoct252016.jpg
News Image BY DEBALINA GHOSHAL/GATESTONE INSTITUTE DECEMBER 21, 2018
Share this article:
U.S. officials revealed in August that China had test-fired a hypersonic missile -- the Xingkong-2 or Starry Sky-2 -- capable of carrying a nuclear warhead and of thwarting missile-defense systems. Although this was the first such test that was openly acknowledged by Beijing, it was, according to the Washington Free Beacon, merely one of many that the U.S. has been monitoring.
About two months earlier, China tested the DF-41 -- one of its most advanced intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBMs). It has a range of 12,000-15,000 km, and is capable of carrying 10 miniaturized nuclear warheads, rather than a single large one.
These miniaturized nuclear warheads on a single ballistic missile are referred to as "multiple independently targetable re-entry vehicles" (MIRVs). MIRV-ing a missile enables it to counter enemy missile-defense systems. Because the DF-41 uses solid rather than liquid fuel -- as does the DF-5 ICBM -- it is more mobile and its launching requires less preparation time. 
Although it can be dispatched from mobile launchers, it can also be launched from silos. Over the years, China has developed dummy silos -- to confuse the enemy and force it to have to distinguish between real and fake ones.
The DF-41 can also be canister-launched. This is a cause for concern, because until now, China has kept its nuclear warheads and delivery systems separate, as part of its "no first use" doctrine, but canister launches require the missile to be fitted with nuclear warheads. And when the missile is fitted with nuclear warheads, its attack time decreases considerably, thus enhancing China's nuclear deterrence and increasing both the mobility and operational flexibility of the missile.
image: http://prophecynewswatch.com/images/ads/TCC_banner1.jpg
China is no doubt assuming that if its ICBMs can reach the United States mainland, they will deter the US from interfering in China's affairs in the South and East China Seas.

How to Make Sense Of The U.S. Withdrawal From Syria
image: http://prophecynewswatch.com/images/recent/troopsdec212018.jpg
News Image BY CLARION PROJECT  DECEMBER 21, 2018  
On a good day, Syria is one of the most complex issues in the Middle East, let alone when the Trump administration announces a rapid U.S. withdrawal from Syria of our troops. The question is: How should we make sense of it?
With hard and fast questions and answers, Clarion Project provides you below with key analysis points to stay up to speed on this developing story:
1. How will the U.S. withdrawal from Syria impact Syria in the next five to 10 years?
Director of Clarion Intelligence Network Ryan Mauro draws a brief visual point for anyone wondering what might come next: “Think of Afghanistan after the Soviet withdrawal and before October, 2001. This will be worse.”
Iranian-backed Shiite militias are currently operating in the region against Sunni forces. The withdrawal of U.S. troops will inevitably trigger a Sunni uprising against these militias in Iraq, which will likely bring us back to where we started. The situation is ripe to get worse.  
2. How might the U.S. withdrawal from Syria impact America? 
In a nutshell, expect the Saudis to dramatically increase support to the Salafists in Syria to compete with their enemies: Turkey, the Muslim Brotherhood and the Qatar coalition. You can expect the following things to happen due to this support: 
Turkey will crush the Syrian Kurdish protectorate in Syria which they see as a direct threat to them and just another step in establishing an autonomous Kurdish state in the region, something Turkey will do anything to stop. America will cede influence in the region to Iran and Russia.

Iran will build military posts north of the Golan Heights in Israel which they will use to increase the frequency and intensity of attacks against Israel’s northern border. This will deepen the Israeli-Iranian proxy war which has been going on in Syria.
Russia will harden its Syrian air and naval bases in Tartous and Latakia and strengthen its ability to deploy military forces west of the Mediterranean. This is key as Russia’s bases in Syria are its only naval access to the Mediterranean.

Israel On Alert: Trump Decision Will Widen Iranian Corridor To Syria
image: http://prophecynewswatch.com/images/recent/iranbridge.jpg
News Image BY YAAKOV LAPPIN/JNS.ORG DECEMBER 21, 2018
to U.S. President Trump's surprise announcement of a withdrawal of all U.S. forces from Syria on Wednesday, Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu issued a brief statement that contained two messages.
"This is, of course, an American decision," he said, emphasizing that it is not in Israel's place to tell its senior partner where to deploy troops. This is an important message to send, to respect America's internal decisions on the use of military force.
Officially, Israel must not play a part in the argument now raging between the American defense establishment and Trump.
At the same time, lacking from Netanyahu's statement was any praise for the decision, which is a reflection of a real concern from Israel's perspective over how the American exit will affect the regional balance of power.
"We will study its timetable, how it will be implemented, and, of course, its implications for us," said the prime minister. "In any case we will take care to maintain the security of Israel and to defend ourselves in this area."
These comments are hardly a warm endorsement. Netanyahu's statement reflects a veiled warning to the toxic regional actor that is set to most immediately benefit from Trump's step: Iran.
The Islamic Republic is working hard to spread its influence, proxies, weapons and terrorism across the Middle East. Its goal is to create a network of areas under its control, filled with armed organizations, weapons factories and missile bases. Tehran wants to build these assets so that it can later use them to attack Israel, and to threaten and extort moderate Sunni states that stand in its way of regional hegemony.
The American troop presence in Syria's east remains part of a "roadblock" to Iranian designs to infiltrate from Iraq.

The Bible Is True - For Better And Worse, In Good Times And Bad
image: http://prophecynewswatch.com/images/recent/meirpanimdec212018.jpg
News Image BY MEIR PANIM DECEMBER 21, 2018 
 The Jerusalem Post recently published a report stating that staggering numbers of Israelis, including children, live below the poverty line. This unfortunate fact aligns with what the Bible stated over two thousand years ago:
"For the poor will never cease to be in the land; therefore I command you, saying, 'You shall freely open your hand to your brother, to your needy and poor in your land.” (Deuteronomy 15:11)
Why would God create a world, especially a Holy Land, where people suffer from hunger and lack basic necessities for daily living? It seems clear: God wants us to be givers as well as takers.
At this time of year, when holiday joy and celebrations abound, many actually find themselves lonely and struggling to make ends meet. 
The Israel-based charity organization, Meir Panim strives all-year-round to help those in need. Though their first goal is providing nutritious food to those who are hungry through their feeding centers across Israel, they also maintain a network of social welfare programs. Their holistic approach to poverty provides immediate care while helping to stem the vicious cycle of poverty so many individuals and families find themselves. 
Besides their feeding centers and Meals-on-Wheels programs, Meir Panim also distributes prepaid shopping cards before holidays, runs after-school clubs for youth-at-risk which inspire children to strive for more in their lives, organizes social activities for young and old to ease their loneliness and enrich their lives and vocational training to help people become self-sufficient.

Progressive Christianity Welcomes The Atheist Pastor
image: http://prophecynewswatch.com/images/recent/progressivedec202018.jpg
News Image BY JOHN STONESTREET/BREAKPOINT.ORG DECEMBER 20, 2018
If the Christian Bible isn't true, Christian morality is not good, and the Christian God doesn't exist, why be a Christian?

Certain beliefs ought to disqualify a person for certain jobs. For example, a vegetarian probably shouldn't be the lead chef at a steakhouse. A pacifist wouldn't make a good general. And an atheist shouldn't be a pastor. At least, that's what you would think.

A liberal denomination in the true north is giving that last bizarre scenario a go. The leadership of the United Church of Canada has settled a years-long controversy by voting to allow Reverend Gretta Vosper, a self-proclaimed atheist, to keep her post as lead minister at West Hill United Church in Toronto.

In her sermons and in her book "With or Without God," Vosper has made it clear she doesn't see the Bible as the authoritative word of God. She views "God" as not a personal Being, but as a metaphor of love, compassion, and beauty. Each Sunday, members of West Hill United Church replace prayer with "community sharing time," and then sing hymns that have been rewritten to accommodate secular sensibilities.

Facial Recognition Software Being Used To Create Police/Corporate Watchlists
image: http://prophecynewswatch.com/images/recent/watchlistdec202018.jpg
News Image BY MASSPRIVATEL DECEMBER 20, 2018 
To everyone who thinks secret watchlists are nothing more than a conspiracy theory, I give you law enforcement's secret public safety watchlists.
The name of the company responsible for creating public safety watchlists should say it all but I digress.
A recent article in Xconomy reveals that law enforcement is using Suspect Technologies facial recognition software to create secret public safety watchlists.
Suspect Technologies is also working to pilot a real-time service next year by monitoring public surveillance video feeds with its facial recognition software and cross-referencing it all against a public safety watchlist, CEO Jacob Sniff says. He explained the plans but declined to identify the law enforcement client.
"We have an agency early adopter, his conception is he's going to have 10 facial recognition cameras in town: one in the police station lobby, some at the Greyhound bus locations, city hall, even the public pool area," Sniff says. "He's going to be scanning people's faces against a small public watchlist."
Sniff claims that at least 200 hundred police departments are secretly using his software. Sniff said, "Suspect's software is being used by a couple hundred law enforcement agencies" but declined to identify them.
A look at Suspect Technologies' "solutions" section reveals that they have partnered with NVIDIA.
NVIDIA is no stranger to helping law enforcement spy on the public. Last year, I revealed that NVIDIA and COBAN Technologies (CT) have been trying to create 360 degree facial recognition police cars.
CT's technology is designed to work with up to six cameras, so police departments could choose to turn their vehicles into 360-degree cameras, making it easier to identify faces.
How will these companies convince the public to accept public safety watchlists?

Twisted Logic: Abbas Condemns Israel For Cracking Down On Terrorists
image: http://prophecynewswatch.com/images/recent/abbasterrorjune272017.jpg
News Image BY BASSAM TAWIL/GATESTONE INSTITUTE DECEMBER 20, 2018 
Three Israelis have been killed in the latest wave of Palestinian terrorism in the West Bank in the past week. The victims are two soldiers and a four-day-old baby who was prematurely born after his mother was shot and wounded in a drive-by shooting attack carried out by Palestinian terrorists.
The terrorist attacks took place near the West Bank city of Ramallah, the de facto capital of the Palestinian Authority (PA), where President Mahmoud Abbas and most of his senior officials live and work. The car used in the drive-by shooting, which took place outside Ofra settlement, was later discovered by the Israeli army in the Ain Musbah neighbourhood of Ramallah, a few hundred meters from the private residence and headquarters of Abbas.
No one is suggesting that Abbas knew in advance of the terrorist attacks. However, the response of Abbas and his top officials to the attacks raises serious doubts about their purported commitment to peace with Israel.
Hours before the Ofra attack, Abbas said in a speech before leaders of his Fatah faction that he remains committed to "peaceful popular resistance" and diplomacy. "We don't believe in weapons, and we don't believe in rockets," Abbas said in a reference to the rockets launched by Hamas and other terrorist groups from the Gaza Strip toward Israel.
The same Abbas who says he is opposed to the use of weapons and rockets has nonetheless failed to condemn the terrorist attacks in which these three Israelis were killed. Instead, his officials and he have been condemning Israel on a daily basis for cracking down on the terrorists.

Lebanon At The Crossroads: Israel & Hezbollah Prepare For Next Conflict
image: http://prophecynewswatch.com/images/recent/lebanondec202018.jpg
News Image BY JACQUES NERIAH/JNS.ORG DECEMBER 20, 2018
At first glance, Hezbollah's silence and its lack of response to Israel's exposure of its attack tunnels during December 2018 seem very surprising. Israel considers the discovery of the tunnels to be a major blow to Hezbollah's strategy. The terror organization intended to take Israel by surprise by using the tunnels to invade the Upper Galilee or parts of it, leading to a major military confrontation with Israel.
For the time being, Hezbollah's leaders, and particularly its Secretary-General Hassan Nasrallah, have chosen to refrain from making any significant comments. Instead, they prefer to respond to the Israeli excavations with ongoing arrogant press coverage intended to ridicule Israel. At the same time, they are keeping a watchful eye on Israeli activities and they claim that as long as Israel continues to drill on its side of the border, there will not be any Hezbollah response.
While Hezbollah's belief that Israel is deterred by the organization's capabilities may explain the lack of reaction from Hezbollah, another reason for the silence may be that Hezbollah is focusing its efforts to uncover the sources (human or otherwise) that enabled Israel to find out about its strategic war plan and complete network of attack tunnels. 
The excavation and deployment of these tunnels cost Hezbollah years of human effort and millions of dollars. Yet another possible reason could be that Hezbollah is attempting to understand the timing of the Israeli diplomatic offensive and the implications of uncovering the attack tunnels in both regional and Lebanese contexts.

Islamic Beast? Turkey Wants Global Islamic Union Governed By Sharia

News Image BY BASSAM TAWIL/GATESTONE INSTITUTE DECEMBER 19, 2018
Share this article:
Turkey appears to be accelerating its endeavor to establish an Ottoman-style Islamic government encompassing several Muslim nations. 
One such effort was apparent in early November at the second "International Islamic Union Congress," in Istanbul. The conference is sponsored mainly by the Strategic Research Center for Defenders of Justice (ASSAM), headed by Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan's chief military advisor, Adnan Tanrıverdi, a retired Islamist lieutenant general.
Other organizers of the congress -- the next one of which is to be held in December 2019 -- include the Association of Justice Defenders (ASDER), Istanbul's Üsküdar University (ÜÜ), the Union of NGOs of the Islamic World (UNIW), the International Muslim Scholars Association (UMAD) and the International Union of Muslim Scholars (IUMS).
The self-described aim of the congress is "to make determinations on an academic and political ground with regard to current problems in world politics, particularly in Islamic world geography, and to offer solutions to decision-makers."
At the November event, Tanrıverdi and other prominent supporters of Erdoğan promoted the creation of a common Muslim economic market. Participants declared their aim to create an Islamic "superpower of the future on Islamic lands owned by 60 Islamic countries, inhabited by 1,6 billion Muslims, on 19 million km2," constituting "55.5% of world oil reserves and 45.6% of its production, 64.1% of natural gas reserves, and 33% of its production."
Bemoaning the fact that the "Muslim world is in disarray," Turkish Deputy Finance Minister Nurettin Nebati suggested in his address to the conferences that Erdoğan -- to whom he referred as the "leading imam to the ummah [Islamic nation]" -- would preside over this planned Islamic confederation.
"Is there anyone whose power would be enough to defeat the one who relies on Allah?" he asked rhetorically.
The Egyptian theologian Yusuf al-Qaradawi, chairman of the Muslim Brotherhood-linked International Union of Muslim Scholars -- known for his advocacy of suicide-bombings -- expressed similar sentiments at the IUMS's general assembly in Istanbul last month:

Crumbling Church Of England Offers Baptism-Style Services For Transgenders
image: http://prophecynewswatch.com/images/recent/churchtransdec192018.jpg
News Image BY PNW STAFF DECEMBER 19, 2018
Attendance at the Church of England continues to plunge to new lows as those who hold true to the scriptures have no choice but to abandon a church that is collapsing in on themselves and so hollowed out from the inside that it is barely recognizable to what it once was.
Official figures - based on an annual pew count - show that only 1.4 per cent of the population of England now attend Anglican services on a typical Sunday morning.. and sadly that is a good thing.
The Church of England's decline into apostasy has been strange to watch, not because they are the first or the only mainline denomination to collapse under the weight of its own compromises. In Canada, for example, the United Church campaigned for legal abortion, celebrated the destruction of the Christian ethic of sexuality, and now has at least one atheist minister. 
But the brazenness with which the clerics of the Church of England have spat on their own heritage has been jarring, to say the least. The Church of England has consistently presented a false Jesus to the world in matters of both homosexuality and transgenderism.
A member of the clergy that presided over Queen Elizabeth II's coronation has asked the faithful to pray that her great-grandson, Prince George, might become a homosexual in order to increase tolerance for the LGBT community. 
Earlier this year, Anglican clergy urged the British government to ban so-called "conversion therapy" for those with gender dysphoria, and announced their intention to attempt to recruit transgender clerics to serve in all aspects of Anglican leadership. And now, of course, there's the new ceremony to celebrate one's "new" gender.

The Israeli-Palestinian peace plan set to be unveiled by the Trump administration will "be different from all previous ones," US Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley said on Tuesday, in remarks delivered at her final appearance at the Security Council's monthly meeting on the Middle East.
Haley, who will leave her post at the end of December following a nearly two-year stint at the UN, did not reveal specific details of the proposal -- which she said she had read -- or a roll-out timeline. Instead, speaking in generalities, she claimed the plan "embraces the reality that things can be done today that were previously unthinkable."
"Unlike previous attempts at addressing this conflict, this plan is not just a few pages, containing unspecific and unimaginative guidelines," Haley stated. "It is much longer. It contains much more thoughtful detail. It brings new elements to the discussion, taking advantage of the new world of technology that we live in. It recognizes the realities on the ground in the Middle East have changed -- and changed in very powerful and important ways."
The Palestinians, in Haley's view, had more to gain from a peace deal than the Israelis.

Culture Of Despair: Why Americans Are Dying Younger & Younger

News Image BY JOHN STONESTREET/BREAKPOINT.ORG DECEMBER 19, 2018
Share this article:
For the third year in a row, according to a November report from the Centers for Disease Control, American life expectancy dropped.
The last time this happened was a century ago, in the years 1915-1918, years marked by our entry into World War I and the outbreak of the "Spanish Flu" pandemic, which killed 675,000 Americans.
This time, neither war nor pestilence is behind the drop in life expectancy. The threats are not external, but internal.
The biggest factors behind the drop in life expectancy among Americans over the last three years are drug overdoses and suicides. In 2017, more than 70,000 Americans died from drug overdoses, and approximately 45,000 people intentionally took their own lives.
These deaths, along with alcohol-related deaths, have been dubbed "deaths of despair" by researchers Anne Case and Angus Deaton.
The "despair" referred to by Case and Deaton is largely economic, resulting from diminished job prospects and other personal disappointments. As Case put it, "Your family life has fallen apart, you don't know your kids anymore, all the things you expected when you started out your life just haven't happened at all."
As a result, people, usually but not always men, turn to alcohol and drugs to ease their pain. An increasing number take their own lives.

Are Globalists Setting The Stage For A Global Economic Reset?

Share this article:  
Since the beginning of this year, I have been warning that trade tariffs initiated by Donald Trump would develop into a full-blown trade war with China, and perhaps other nations, and that the timing of this trade war is rather suspicious. 
Suspicious how? 
Almost every instance of further escalation was made by Trump around the exact time that the Federal Reserve was also making a large cut to its balance sheet or raising interest rates. Instead of focusing on the fact that extreme volatility has returned to markets because central banks are pulling the plug on life support, the mainstream media is holding up the trade war as the ultimate culprit behind the accelerating crash.
In other words, Trump's trade war is acting as a perfect distraction from the crisis which the banking establishment has now deliberately triggered.
The initial response to my suggestion by a minority of liberty movement activists and skeptics was outright denial. Some people argued that the trade war would be over before it even began and that China would immediately capitulate in fear of losing the U.S. consumer market. Others argued that the trade war "had been started by the Chinese years ago" and Trump was simply "fighting back."
Clearly, the trade war is not fading away as many assumed. As I predicted, it is only continuing to grow. And the notion that a trade war is necessary at this time in defense of the U.S. economy ignores certain realities. For example, the trade deficit itself was never "theft" by the Chinese, but a BARTER between the Chinese and the U.S. government and U.S. corporations. 
In exchange for the Chinese and other trade partners using the dollar as the world reserve currency (and petro-currency) and buying up US treasury debt, U.S. elites have arranged a deficit advantage for China. One could also add China's cheap labor and low cost manufactured goods as part of that barter as well.
While the American working class got the short end of the stick in this deal, the government and the corporate cabal certainly benefited.
Now, if Trump had pressured corporations to bring manufacturing back to the U.S. in order to reap the rewards of his dramatic tax cuts, tariffs after the fact might make a little more sense. With production back on U.S. soil we would have more economic stability to weather future crisis events.

Drag Queen Storytime Spreads To Daycare

News Image BY JONATHON VAN MAREN/BRIDGEHEAD.CA DECEMBER 18, 2018
Share this article:
Back in July, I wrote about the phenomenon of "Drag Queen Story Time" at public libraries across North America, where drag queens are brought in to read stories to groups of small children. 
In response, bloggers at the Huffington Post, Gay Star News, and BlogTO wrote columns calling me "intolerant," which is at this point so boring it hardly bears mentioning. 
One of the key points I was making--a point which was ignored--is that increasingly, LGBT activists are being invited into children's spaces to introduce children to their ideology.
It isn't just public libraries and the public school system, either. As it turns out, drag queens are also showing up at daycare centres to read stories--at the invitation of daycare providers, and apparently with the permission of parents. The CBC sent a journalist over to a Montreal daycare to deliver a glowing report of the proceedings:
When Barbada -- who is more than six feet tall without her heels on -- arrived at Over The Rainbow daycare in NDG this week, the children were fascinated by her appearance...The Montreal drag queen brought her big pink hair, big earrings, colourful dresses and warm smile to the daycare for its very first drag queen storytime earlier this week.
Barbada, who has been doing storytime events for young children at the Grande Bibliothèque for about a year, read the children stories in French and English, including Coat of Many Colors by Dolly Parton, about a girl who is poor and gets teased about her coat. After storytime, Barbada and the children discussed the messages in the stories: not judging people based on their clothing or their appearance, and the importance of showing each other respect.

The Hamas Plan To Take Over The West Bank

News Image BY KHALED ABU TOAMEH/GATESTONE INSTITUTE DECEMBER 18, 2018
Share this article:  
It is clear by now that Hamas is behind some of the recent terror attacks against Israelis in the West Bank. These attacks serve the interests of Hamas and its friends and sponsors, especially the Palestinian Islamic Jihad organization -- and Iran.
Hamas and its allies have a plan, and they are not even keeping it a secret -- to export their "armed struggle" against Israel beyond the Gaza Strip and ultimately to take control of the West Bank.
The latest terrorist attack took place on December 9 outside the West Bank settlement of Ofra, east of Ramallah. An Israeli-Canadian citizen, Amichai Ish-Ran, and this pregnant wife, Shira, were among seven people wounded in a drive-by shooting attack. The baby born prematurely as a result of the terrorist attack died on December 12, after doctors fought to save his life for close to 72 hours.
Hamas, which later claimed responsibility for the attack, was the first Palestinian faction to commend the terrorists. So far, not a single Palestinian faction has come out against the attack, including Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas's ruling Fatah faction.
Describing the shooting attack as a "heroic and qualitative operation," representatives of Hamas and several Palestinian factions said that it demonstrated that the Palestinian "resistance was still alive in the West Bank." They also called on Palestinians to "step up the intifada (uprising) against Israel, specifically settlers and Israel Defense Forces soldiers.
"The West Bank has taken the initiative of resisting the occupation," Hamas said in a statement published in the Gaza Strip shortly after the terrorist attack. The attack, Hamas added, "came to affirm our people's legitimate right to resist the occupation at a time when the occupation, together with Israel, had tried to criminalize our resistance."

Something Wiccan This Way Comes: Why Is The Occult On The Rise?

Netflix's most talked-about new show this fall is "The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina." The "Sabrina" of the title is Sabrina Spellman, a half-witch/half-mortal who is about to celebrate her sixteenth birthday. On that day, which is, not coincidentally, October 31, she is expected to undergo what the show calls a "dark baptism," in which she would pledge loyalty to Satan.
Now before you are tempted to say "Okay, it's just another stupid TV show," consider this: According to recent reports, occult ideas and practices are booming in the United States, and not just outside the church.
A recent Pew Research study found that a large and growing percentage of Americans believe in reincarnation, astrology, psychics, and the presence of spirits in nature.
In fact, six in ten Americans accept at least one or more of these beliefs. Shockingly, that number is just as high among self-identified Christians. Even agnostics--over half, in fact--have adopted occult ideas, along with the overwhelming majority of those who call themselves "spiritual, but not religious."
The occult is becoming mainstream in this country. At least part of the reason why is how easy, user-friendly, and infinitely customizable the chaotic buffet of beliefs borrowed from Eastern pantheistic faiths and pre-Christian religions is these days. There's no church or creed or set of rules. You can pick and choose whatever you like. It's spirituality meets consumerism. And you are the god.

Censorship Pushing Conservatives Off Twitter

News Image BY SHIREEN QUDOSI/CLARION PROJECT DECEMBER 17, 2018
Share this article: 
Sweeping censorship across social media and subscriber-content sites has pushed conservatives out of these sites and sent them searching for more tolerant digital platforms. The latest story in the news points to increased bans and discrimination against conservative views on Twitter. 
However, shockingly, Twitter isn't simply censoring conservative speech, it's also enforcing foreign laws from sharia-based countries.
As Clarion Project reported, Ensaf Haidar, wife of imprisoned Saudi liberal blogger Raif Badawi, was warned by Twitter authorities that she was violating Pakistani law by tweeting against the niqab (face veil). Haidar had simply tweeted a photo of a woman in a niqab along with the words, "Retweet if you're against niqab." That earned Haidar a letter from Twitter telling her she was in "violation of Pakistani law."
Twitter imposed the same Pakistani law on Canadian columnist Anthony Furey. The Toronto Sun op-ed editor was accused by Twitter of insulting Islam's prophet Mohammed, which in Pakistan is an offense punishable by death.
Twitter's increasing boldness in platform censorship isn't limited to these two examples nor is it exclusive to Twitter. It is also happening on YouTube, Facebook and other platforms like Patreon.
However, the censorship on Twitter is particularly egregious because the site has become the online "watering hole" for debate and dialogue.
William Shakespeare famously said, "Jesters do oft prove prophets," meaning that if you want know the truth, you will hear it from the court jesters.

Today's "jesters" are our satirists and select comedians, but even they're not exempt from the crushing boot of our digital overlords. Twitter permanently banned satirist Godrey Elfwick, who targeted extreme left-wing political correctness.

Australia: Half-Recognition Of Jerusalem Means Redividing The Capital

I am not particularly enthusiastic about Australia's recognition of "west Jerusalem as the capital of Israel" while its embassy remains in Tel Aviv.
On the other hand, anyone with a desire to repartition Jerusalem is cordially invited to send Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison a nice thank you card. Morrison, after all, declared his country's recognition for half of Jerusalem, which essentially means redividing the Israeli capital into two cities.
The declaration apparently stems from internal political considerations. Similar to the Netanyahu government, the Morrison government hinges on a minuscule parliamentary majority. His is not a principled recognition of a united Jerusalem, but an announcement that may, perhaps, sway some Jewish voters in Australia. 
From this perspective alone, Morrison is a disappointment: He is a Christian Evangelical, but seems far from his Evangelical friends who very vocally and passionately promote the biblical connection between the land of Israel and the people of Israel.
It means that Australia has decided, even before negotiations with the Palestinians, that so-called "east Jerusalem" will be the capital of a Palestinian state, if one is established. This is a unilateralist, premature determination, which should have been withheld until the sides properly negotiate the matter.

Australia: Half-Recognition Of Jerusalem Means Redividing The Capital

I am not particularly enthusiastic about Australia's recognition of "west Jerusalem as the capital of Israel" while its embassy remains in Tel Aviv.
On the other hand, anyone with a desire to repartition Jerusalem is cordially invited to send Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison a nice thank you card. Morrison, after all, declared his country's recognition for half of Jerusalem, which essentially means redividing the Israeli capital into two cities.

Earthquakes In Diverse Places As Tennessee Has Largest Earthquake In 45 Years
image: http://prophecynewswatch.com/images/recent/earthquakejan292016.jpg
News Image BY MICHAEL SNYDER/ECONOMIC COLLAPSE BLOG DECEMBER 14, 2018
Share this article:   
Large earthquakes aren't supposed to happen in Tennessee.  On Wednesday, the largest earthquake in 45 years hit eastern Tennessee, and it made headlines all over the nation.  The magnitude 4.4 quake was so powerful that it was felt in portions of Alabama, Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina and Kentucky.  
Significant shaking was even felt as far away as Atlanta, and that was highly unusual.  The original earthquake was rapidly followed by a magnitude 3.0 aftershock, and subsequently there were several other noteworthy aftershocks.  
We live at a time when earthquakes are increasing in size and frequency, and many are concerned about what this may mean for our future.  
The recent earthquakes in Alaska were a shock, but at least they made sense since much of the coastline of Alaska sits directly along the Ring of Fire.  
But eastern Tennessee is not an area that has traditionally been prone to quakes.  Could it be possible that the "seismic scar" that was created when the North American continent was formed is beginning to reawaken?
Prior to Wednesday, the last time that eastern Tennessee had experienced an earthquake of this magnitude or greater was on November 30th, 1973.
That was 45 years ago, and many of you that will be reading this article were not even alive at that time.
Some experts had regarded eastern Tennessee as one of the "safest" areas in the eastern half of the country, but after what we just witnessed they may want to reevaluate things.  When the earthquake happened, the shaking was so violent that it actually woke people from their sleep all the way over in neighboring North Carolina...
"Felt it here in Arden off Brevard Rd for sure. Sitting on the couch at 4:15 am reading news on laptop and it felt like the house swayed back and forth for a few seconds. Weird......." - Wayne Womble
"I felt the earthquake in Alexander, NC around 4:15 am. It woke me from my sleep." - Megan S. Bottego
"We felt the earthquake in Marshall, Madison County, NC (just outside the Buncombe County line). It woke me up about 4:20am as it shook enough to cause items on dresser to shake and rattle. It only lasted about 5-10 seconds. " - Paula Seay
But this isn't the only earthquake that has happened in the region recently.

Why Are So Many Millennial Christians Confused About Homosexuality?

News Image BY MICHAEL BROWN/ASKDRBROWN.ORG DECEMBER 14, 2018
Share this article:   
How is it that the Bible can be so clear on a particular subject -- in this case, the subject of homosexual practice -- and yet some Christians are not clear on what the Bible says? And why does it seem that millennials in particular are confused about the Bible and homosexuality?
Here are the main reasons, some positive (meaning, the intent might be good, even if the conclusion is wrong) and some negative (meaning, there are no good reasons for the wrong conclusions).
Because They're Kind Humans Too
First, many millennial Christians have friends or family members who identify as gay or lesbian.
These friends and loved ones are nice people, friendly people, decent people, hardworking people, loyal people. They are not sexual predators and they seem perfectly normal in other respects.
Their relationships seem somewhat like heterosexual relationships, and from what these friends and loved ones say, they were born this way.
How can it be a sin to be gay?
Second, some of these millennials grew up in church environments where gays were demonized.

US Warns Hezbollah Threat To The West As Dangerous As ISIS

News Image BY ALGEMEINER.COM DECEMBER 14, 2018
Share this article:
A top US State Department official on Tuesday warned officials from twelve key nations in the Western Hemisphere that Hezbollah -- Iran's Lebanon-based Shi'a proxy terror group -- is "just as dangerous and just as close" as ISIS, the Sunni Islamist organization responsible for mass atrocities in Iraq and Syria.
"Despite its name, Lebanese Hezbollah operates within many of our own borders and far from the Middle East," Deputy Secretary of State John J. Sullivan told delegates to the Western Hemisphere Counterterrorism Ministerial in Washington, DC.
Among the countries represented at Monday's meeting was Argentina - on two occasions the target of savage Hezbollah terrorist attacks during the 1990s. "In 1994, Hezbollah killed 85 people and injured hundreds more in Buenos Aires when it attacked the Argentine Israelite Mutual Association (AMIA) just two years after it had attacked the Israeli embassy there," Sullivan reminded the delegates.
While Hezbollah has not carried out attacks in Latin America on that scale since the AMIA atrocity, Sullivan asserted that "several of your governments are still confronted with Hezbollah plots on a regular basis."
Said Sullivan: "Just this September, Brazil arrested a Hezbollah financier in the tri-border area near Paraguay and Argentina. In 2016, Paraguay arrested another Hezbollah operative smuggling out 39 kilos of cocaine, whom we in the United States are prosecuting in Miami."

Replacing Israel With A Palestinian State From The River To The Sea?
image: http://prophecynewswatch.com/images/recent/abbassept262016.jpg
News Image BY ERIC MARGULES/ALGEMEINER.COM DECEMBER 14, 2018
Share this article:
Marc Lamont Hill, a political commentator was recently fired by CNN after a video surfaced of him calling for "a free Palestine from the river to the sea".  This phrase is often the rallying call of the terrorist group Hamas, Students For Justice In Palestine and other Islamic groups that would like to see Israel replaced by a Palestinian state.
So you think that Israel should be replaced by a Palestinian state from the Jordan River to the Mediterranean Sea? That Israel should cease to exist as the world's only Jewish nation-state -- and the only democracy in the Middle East -- and be replaced by a country with a Palestinian majority? 
Have you thought about what would happen if Israel disappeared? You center your debate on whether Israel has a right to exist. Perhaps we should instead imagine the hypothetical replacement of Israel with a Palestinian-majority state, and answer some obvious questions:
What would happen to the six million Jews who live in present-day Israel? Can they count on a Palestinian-led government to protect them? Will they feel safe? Will they be safe? And if they don't feel safe and need to flee, where will they go? Arab countries expelled them, and surely won't allow them back in; Europe tried to annihilate them and remains a hostile environment for Jews. Perhaps Jews could flee to North America or other places that are not as hostile, but it's quite a lot to demand of a people to give up their homeland.

The Leader Of Egypt Schools Islamist's On Immigration To The West

News Image BY CLARION PROJECT DECEMBER 13, 2018
Share this article:
When a world leader speaks candidly -- especially with issues having to do with Islamism -- do we judge him based on the truth of his words or if his words are politically correct?
Speaking at the World Youth Forum held in Egypt last month, Egypt's President Adbul Fattah el-Sisi participated in a session where he answered questions from the floor.
The following is an extremely candid answer from el-Sisi to the question: Why are world leaders closing their doors to immigration?
His answer speaks volumes to the problems of the growth of Islamism in the West and the lack of integration by Islamist immigrants in Western countries.
We imagine if a Western leader would have spoken the same words, he would have been lambasted as an Islamophobe. Yet, here is the answer el-Sisi felt free to say:
"This question was put to me by Mohammed Kassim, a young Afghan: Why world leaders are closing their doors to immigration?
"I don't want to go very deep into this issue. Every country has the right to protect its people and their interests and should respect human rights, but in a framework that allows it to preserve its national interests.
"Instead of asking why these countries are closing their doors to immigration, you should be asking yourself why Afghans in Afghanistan don't care about the fate of their country.

Diversity Is A One-Way Street As The Left Bans Anything Offensive
image: http://prophecynewswatch.com/images/recent/diversitydec132018.jpg
News Image BY MICHAEL BROWN/ASKDRBROWN.ORG DECEMBER 13, 2018
The pattern is as predictable as it is obvious. When the left (especially the far left) talks about freedom, it means freedom for those who conform. When it talks about diversity, it means my way or the highway. Political correctness is to be enforced. Dissent will not be tolerated. So much for the left bringing "liberation."
Shutting Down Dissenting Views
Of course, the left will say to us, "No, you are the ones who require conformity. You are the ones who refuse to recognize marriage when it's different than what you're used to. You are the ones who want to forbid a woman from having control over her own body. It is our side, the left, which loves freedom."
But that objection misses the point.
Our argument is that marriage in our society has a certain meaning and history and function. To tamper with that is to tamper with our foundations.
But if two men or two women want to live together, that's their choice. We simply don't want to be required to validate or celebrate that choice.
The more power the left has, the more dissension must be crushed and the more a radical PC norm must be enforced.

Lauren Daigle On The Spot - Why We All Should Be Prepared for This Question
image: http://prophecynewswatch.com/images/recent/daigledec132018.jpg
News Image BY JOHN STONESTREET/BREAKPOINT.ORG DECEMBER 13, 2018
When yet another Christian celebrity fails to give a straight answer on a hot-button moral issue, it reveals a deeper problem.
Back in September, an article in Rolling Stone announced, "A Christian Singer is Bigger than Drake and Arianna Grande this Week." That singer is Lauren Daigle, the Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter whose brilliant voice, soulful style, and hope-filled lyrics has won fans well beyond the Contemporary Christian genre.
She's becoming a regular on talk shows and in national publications, and has officially earned the coveted status of "crossover artist" at just 27 years old.
But with broader appeal comes a challenge: maintaining one's identity, not as a "Christian singer," but as a Christian. Sadly, it's a challenge many Christian celebrities have struggled to handle.
Last week during an interview with iHeart radio, Daigle was asked, given her recent appearance on the Ellen DeGeneres show, whether she believes homosexuality is a sin.
"I can't honestly answer that," Daigle replied. "I have too many people that I love, and they are homosexuals."
She went on to explain that since she's not God, she can't say one way or another. Instead, people should just "read the Bible and find out" for themselves.
Now let me say from the beginning here I understand how hard this high-pressure situation can be. For a young woman like Daigle with a skyrocketing career, calling homosexuality a sin in a public forum could mean closing a lot of doors and alienating a lot of fans.
image: http://prophecynewswatch.com/images/ads/TCC_banner1.jpg
There's a real cost that comes with taking a stand for the Christian view of sex and marriage. Deciding to pay that price in a split second with a microphone shoved in your face is something better-trained theologians and pastors have failed to do.
But this whole story reveals something else--the deep crisis of authority plaguing evangelicalism right now. First, we should be past the point of answering this question, because the Christian view of sex and marriage should be so clear and our commitment to it should be so well-known by now that there should be no longer any point in asking the question!

How America Helps Hezbollah
image: http://prophecynewswatch.com/images/recent/hezbollahnov042016.jpg
News Image BY SHOSHANA BRYEN/JNS.ORG DECEMBER 13, 2018
The terror organization Hezbollah has built tunnels from Lebanese territory into northern Israel; the intention was infiltration. It turns out, however, that Israel Defense Forces' intelligence had been tracking them and last week entered southern Lebanon to destroy them.
The Israeli operation--"Operation Northern Shield"--will likely not cause a major cross-border war because Iranian is not prepared to lose the assets it put there to the Israel Air Force.
What appears less understood is how the United States--by its financial and training support of the government of Lebanon and the Lebanese Armed Forces (LAF)--is providing resources that allow Hezbollah to pursue its deadly machinations on the border.
Not deliberately, of course, and not directly. The Trump administration strongly supported Israel's decision to strike Hezbollah. Even the Russian Foreign Ministry spokesperson said in a press briefing, "We do not question Israel's right to ensure its national security, including by preventing anyone from entering the country."

Prime Minister: We will not rest until criminals brought to justiceIsraeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu (Flash90/Yonatan Sindel)
Netanyahu said, “We will not rest until we find these murderous criminals and bring them to justice,” after a terror shooting wounded six.
By World Israel News Staff and TPS
In the wake of Sunday night’s terrorist attack at the Ofra Junction in Samaria, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu said, “We will not rest until we find these murderous criminals and bring them to justice.”
He added that “everyone is praying for the recovery of a young mother who is fighting for her life, as well as her baby. “We also wish a speedy recovery for all the wounded,” he said.
Netanyahu referred to a 21-year-old woman, who was seriously injured in the attack. The medical team at Shaare Tzedek hospital in Jerusalem succeeded in delivering the baby.
Dr. Alon Schwartz, a senior surgeon at Shaare Tzedek, said that the woman, Shira Yael bat Liora, suffered from “gunshot wounds in the pelvic area and abdomen. The woman arrived in critical condition, she lost a lot of blood, received blood transfusions, was stabilized and was taken to the operating room for urgent emergency surgery. She underwent a caesarean section and then surgery to treat her injuries. The baby is in the NICU [neonatal intensive care unit] and is being evaluated.”

“Right now we can fly over Egypt, Chad, and apparently over Sudan, we are breaking out into the world, this is an unprecedented revolution,” he stated.

Hezbollah’s Radwan Unit was tasked with leading the assault on the Galilee.
By Jack Gold, World Israel News
The exposure of Hezbollah’s tunneling efforts by Israel’s Operation Northern Shield has brought renewed attention on the “elite” Hezbollah force that would have let the attack through those tunnels.
The special forces Radwan unit is named after Al-Hajj Radwan, the nom de guerre of Hezbollah’s late infamous military chief Imad Mughniyeh, who was reportedly assassinated in a joint Israeli-US operation in Damascus in February 2008.
Hezbollah’s Radwan Unit is trained to execute raids and small unit tactics, including ambushes, assassinations, and operations that require deep infiltration.
The unit is secretive and is regarded as professional, able and tough, excelling in the art of clandestine operations, “the pride of Hezbollah leaders,” Arab media outlets say.
The unit has accumulated experience while operating in Syria and fighting alongside the army of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. Its former commander, Hatem Hamadi, was killed in action in Syria in October 2016.

Justice Minister: Annex Samaria settlement in response to attackIsraeli Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked (Flash90)
Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked said normalizing the legal status of the Israeli town of Ofra should be one response to last night’s terror attack.
By World Israel News Staff
On Monday, Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked called on Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to make the Israeli town of Ofra in Samaria officially part of Israel.
She made her remarks in response to a drive-by shooting that left six injured, including a pregnant woman at a hitchhiking station near the town on Sunday night.
“The terrorists’ goal is to kill us in order to break our spirit. In the face of [PA President Mahmoud Abbas’s] ‘price of terrorism,’ we must set a price of our own: Every terror attack will strengthen the settlement rather than weaken it, and every potential terrorist will know in advance that the settlement will be registered in his name,” Justice Minister Shaked said.
The town of Ofra, founded in 1975, was one of the first Jewish towns established in Judea and Samaria after Israel conquered the territory in the Six Day War in 1967. It includes 700 homes, of which 500 face legal issues, either having been built on private land or without proper permits, according to a defense ministry report.

IDF Spokesman Brig. Gen. Ronen Manelis accused the Lebanese government and Lebanese army of ignoring Hezbollah’s activity.
By World Israel News Staff
IDF Spokesman Brig. Gen. Ronen Manelis, lambasted the Lebanese leadership and the Lebanese army for closing their eyes to Hezbollah activity in the country, Israel’s Mako news site reports Monday. The IDF spokesman said Lebanon was in fact directly responsible for Hezbollah’s development to the north of Israel’s border.
Manelis’ remarks appeared in the London-based Arabic newspaper Asharq Al-Awsat.
“The continuation of this activity will lead to a deterioration in security and what will happen to Lebanon will be twice what happened in Dahieh in Beirut during the 2006 Lebanon War,” Manelis said, referring to the Shiite neighborhood in south Beirut which housed Hezbollah’s headquarters, destroyed by Israel in that war.
Manelis said that Israel is prepared to operate inside Lebanon and destroy whole areas, placing the responsibility not only on Hezbollah but also Lebanon’s leadership, its president, prime minister and chief of staff, according to Mako news. Manelis said they are shutting their eyes to the fact that Qasem Soleimani, leader of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards, is sending order to Hezbollah from Tehran to act against Israel.
“Suleimani is sitting satisfied in Tehran, [Hezbollah’s Nassan] Nasrallah in Beirut and both are holding the Lebanese people hostage,” Manelis said, referring to the residents of southern Lebanon, where tunnels have been dug under their homes.

U.S. Life Expectancy Falling - The 2 Biggest Reasons Why Will Surprise You

Life expectancy in the United States has been falling in recent years, and we haven't seen a trend like this since the days of World War I.  When I was growing up, life expectancy was continually rising, and it was generally believed that it would keep rising for many decades to come.  But that hasn't happened.
Instead, average life expectancy started to stall and now it has been declining.  You might assume that this is because rates of cancer, heart disease and diabetes are going up, but the numbers are telling a different story.  
In fact, brand new numbers from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention are telling us that life expectancy is going down in the United States because of a dramatic increase in drug overdoses and suicides...
U.S. life expectancy declined in 2017 as more Americans died of drug overdoses and suicides, furthering a troubling trend of declining lifespans not seen in a century, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention found in a report released Thursday.
Life expectancy was 78.6 years in 2017, down from 78.7 years in 2016, the CDC said.

From Pearl Harbor To Salvation: A Lesson For Our Generation

Last week, we remembered that "day of infamy" that launched the United States into a world war. But it also launched two young airmen on a path to forgiveness and salvation.
Seventy-seven years ago today, the Japanese launched a surprise attack on a U.S. naval base in Hawaii called Pearl Harbor. The next day, President Roosevelt addressed Congress and a shocked nation:
"Yesterday, December 7, 1941, a date which will live in infamy. The United States of America was suddenly and deliberately attacked by naval and air forces of the empire of Japan." 
Pearl Harbor was for the Greatest Generation what September 11 is for ours: a national memory. As we remember and honor those who served, I also want to tell you a Pearl Harbor story about two men who exchanged hatred for their enemies for a love and friendship.
Japanese naval Captain Mitsuo Fuchida planned and led the deadly air attack on Pearl Harbor. Astonishingly, although his plane was hit 21 times by anti-aircraft fire, Fuchida was able to return to his carrier.
In fact, he escaped death several times during the war. On August 5, 1945, he was attending a military conference in Hiroshima when he was ordered to report to Tokyo. The very next day, the U.S. dropped an atomic bomb on Hiroshima. Fuchida became part of a team sent back to Hiroshima to assess the damage. Every single member of that team died of radiation poisoning--except Fuchida.

The Palestinian terrorist group Hamas could not have wished for a better birthday gift than the one with which the United Nations General Assembly presented it last week.
In a few days, Hamas will hold a massive celebration in the Gaza Strip to mark its 31st anniversary. Hamas leaders are expected to pass on to their supporters the nice gift the terrorist group has just received from the UN -- a gift that enables them to continue launching rockets at Israel and planning how to kill as many Jews as possible on the way to eliminating Israel and replacing it with an Islamic state.
Although a majority of UN member states voted in favor of a US-sponsored resolution condemning the activities of Hamas and other Palestinian terrorist groups, it failed to be adopted at the UN General Assembly. The resolution condemned Hamas for "repeatedly firing rockets into Israel and for inciting violence, thereby putting civilians at risk", and for its use of resources to construct military infrastructure "including tunnels to infiltrate Israel and equipment to launch rockets into civilian areas."
Although 87 members voted in favor, and 58 against with 32 abstentions, the resolution failed, because prior to the vote, the General Assembly passed a different resolution requiring a two-thirds majority for endorsing the US-sponsored resolution.

Your Tax Dollars At Work: Inciting Next Generation Of Israel-Haters On Campus

It's hard to believe, but this administration, as well state governments, are funding anti-Israel incitement on college campuses across the nation.
How? By sending millions of dollars to support Middle East Studies programs, which are dominated by Israel-hating, anti-Semitic professors.
Almost half of the programs are led by faculty who have endorsed academic boycotts of Israel, and develop and lead BDS rallies and other anti-Israel activities. Even worse, in order to get these government grants, they must conduct teacher-training workshops for teachers of K-12 public schools. This, according to Sarah Stern of EMET (The Endowment for Middle East Truth), who has been working on this issue for years, amounts to little more than "trickle down propaganda." 
Nurturing and growing the anti-Israel movement in the United States, which has been going on for decades, has horrific long-term ramifications for Israel and the Jewish people. We are funding the academic headquarters for anti-Israel incitement. This funding has to stop.
It all started innocently enough. In 1965, in the wake of the Cold War, Congress passed an education act that included developing Regional Studies Departments. The objective was to develop proficiency in languages such as Russian and Arabic, and their cultures, so that the Defense establishment would have a candidate pool to draw from to combat existential threats to the United States. As with many good intentions, it didn't work out exactly as planned, particularly in regards to the Middle East Studies Departments.

As I predicted just after the 2016 presidential election, a sordid theater of blame has exploded over the state of the U.S. economy, with fingers pointing everywhere except (in most cases) at the true culprits behind the crash. Some people point to the current administration and its pursuit of a trade war. 
Others point to the Federal Reserve, with its adverse interest rate hikes into economic weakness and its balance sheet cuts.
Some blame the Democrats for doubling the national debt under the Obama Administration and creating massive trade and budget deficits. And others look towards Republicans for not yet stemming the continually increasing national debt and deficits.
In today's economic landscape, the debt issue is absolutely critical. While it is often brought up in regards to our fiscal uncertainty, it is rarely explored deeply enough.
I believe that economic crisis events are engineered deliberately by the financial elite in order to create advantageous conditions for themselves. To understand why, it is important to know the root of their power.
Without extreme debt conditions, economic downturns cannot be created (or at least sustained for long periods of time). According to the amount of debt weighing down a system, banking institutions can predict the outcomes of certain actions and also influence certain end results. For example, if the Fed was interested in conjuring a debt based bubble, a classic strategy would be to set interest rates artificially low for far too long. 
Conversely, raising interest rates into economic weakness is a strategy that can be employed in order to collapse a bubble. This is what launched the Great Depression, it is what ignited the crash of 2008, and it is what's going on today.
The massive debt burden makes recovery difficult, if not impossible, and thus the system becomes increasingly dependent on the banking elites to resolve the problem.
Debt is the fuel that keeps the centralization machine running. I am not talking about standard lending, though this can be a factor. What I'm talking about is debt created through policy; debt that's created in an instant through the use of subversive and arbitrary measures, like central bank balance sheet initiatives or interest rates. 
And, debt that's created through collusion between central banks, international banks, ratings agencies, and government using the removal of regulations, or the implementation of unfair regulatory standards.
Debt is a drug. The banks have known this for quite some time and have exploited the opiate of easy money to leverage entire nations and cultures into servitude or self-destruction. To illustrate this point, let's look at the debt numbers today.

Liberal Churches: Compromised & Infiltrated

Share this article:
In Chapter 8 of my 2016 book The Culture War--"Who Killed Religious Freedom?"--I described how the Sexual Revolution succeeded, in part, due to assistance from liberal churches that were either willing to offload unpopular theological teachings in exchange for social acceptance, or thoroughly infiltrated by those who wished to use the gravitas of religious institutions to further their agenda:
Liberal churches, on the other hand, served as convenient collaborators for the gay liberation movement. Just as the abortion activists in both Canada and the United States had targeted pseudo-Christian churches that had long repudiated anything resembling orthodoxy to gain support for their abortion-legalization campaigns, Kirk and Madsen detailed how the support of churches was essential for their campaigns, as well. 
If the gay liberation activists could convince liberal denominations to support their cause and erode the resolve of weak-kneed churches through massive cultural pressure, they could utilize such endorsements to claim moral legitimacy for their cause.
As liberal churches began to permit same-sex relationships, take steps towards the ordination of gay clergy, and make approving noises concerning gay marriage, gay activists were able to send a loud message to a culture that was awaiting the Christian response. 
They could effectively push to the fringe orthodox Christian denominations who held to 2,000 years of Christian teaching on sexuality, while declaring that the liberal denominations, (those who endorsed love in all its forms,) were the true representatives of Christianity in the West. 
That is why orthodox Christians who despise homophobia have found themselves consistently lumped in with the hatemongering Westboro Baptists--because the gay liberation movement has, through the careful cultivation of alliances with post-Christian churches, redefined for many in the culture at large what it means to be a Christian.

Fog Of War Can’t Conceal Hezbollah’s Plotting

Northern Israel was covered by thick fog during the course of ‎the weekend with near-zero visibility. The ‎rain came and went, mostly drizzling and ‎turning everything that is not concrete into mud. ‎
Someone just passing through would probably be ‎unable to tell anything was wrong or that the entire area ‎was on edge. The partial military restrictions ‎imposed on a section of the border when Operation ‎Northern Shield was launched last week have already ‎been lifted, and nothing could be said for a military ‎presence beyond the sporadic military vehicle ‎driving around. For all intents and purposes, this ‎was just another rainy Saturday in northern Israel. ‎
This facade, however, successfully hid the military's nonstop ‎efforts to ‎neutralize Hezbollah terror tunnels snaking under ‎the Israel-Lebanon border.‎
The decision to continue the search for tunnels over ‎the weekend was unorthodox, and not only because it ‎involved operations on Shabbat. The work was hindered ‎by the stormy weather, but the complex engineering ‎and logistics effort involved in this intense ‎operation never waned. If anything, the IDF kept ‎pushing and everyone - from GOC Northern Command ‎Maj. Gen. Yoel Strick to the last special combat ‎engineering soldier deployed on the ground - seemed ‎to be accelerating the pace.‎
The Israeli operation is currently underway in several locations ‎simultaneously. One of them is a tunnel running ‎under the northern town of Metula and on Saturday ‎afternoon, another significant tunnel was ‎discovered. ‎
A security incident interrupted the work on Saturday ‎when IDF commandos securing the operation came ‎across three Hezbollah operatives trying to exploit ‎the fog to steal technical equipment. The troops ‎opened fire and the three fled, but the incident ‎stressed the prudence of increasing military ‎deployment along the border, as the threat is very ‎real. ‎

The detailed Palestinian Authority budget for 2018 that was published recently has new details about the allocations to arrested terrorists and the families of those who died or were wounded in the context of the "struggle against Zionism:"
The total PA budget is $5 billion. The amount that supports prisoners is $155 million, out of which $147 million are spent on transfers to the prisoners. 
These include salaries to 5,000 prisoners, paying Israeli fines for 1,200 prisoners, grants to 1,500 prisoners upon their discharge, grants for 1,200 unemployed released prisoners, delayed payments to 1,000 prisoners, salaries for 5,500 released prisoners, unspecified amounts to released prisoners who spent more than 10 years in jail, canteen expenditures for 6,000 prisoners, and clothing allocations for 5,000 prisoners.
The PA budget for supporting the families of "martyrs" and the wounded is $185 million. This sum is used to make sure that 24,000 families of "martyrs" and wounded who reside inside the "homeland" get a monthly allowance, 13,500 such families who reside outside the "homeland" get a monthly allowance, 375 families get special monetary assistance, 28,000 families get health insurance, and monthly allowances are paid to the victims of the 2014 conflict in Gaza. 
On top of all this, the budget is used to finance a variety of benefits to the family members (such as going on pilgrimages and exemptions from education tuition).

Is China's Totalitarian Social Credit System Coming To The US?
image: http://prophecynewswatch.com/images/recent/creditscoredec072018.jpg
News Image BY MEADOWN CLARK/ORGANIC PREPPER DECEMBER 07, 2018 
Recently, The Organic Prepper reported some shocking news of China's newest rollout: a social credit system.
It's a system of surveillance and governance using a social scoring system based on the state's perceived trustworthiness of the individual. Not only are social media and financial accounts tied into a person's "score" - much like a credit score number - but also friends and associates are compelled to distance themselves from an offending person, otherwise, their score can be dropped too.
The program is called the Sesame Score. Symbolically this represents "open sesame"or doorways that are either opened or blocked to the individual who tries to move freely.
A Totalitarian Dream
This is every totalitarian government's ultimate dream: a society that polices itself, its thoughts, its beliefs and each other.
It's the ultimate power imbalance and crushes individual will. If such a scoring system should be used it should be in cases of state or institution accountability such as checking politicians' funding sources or Glassdoor.com where employees and interviewees can evaluate companies to let others know about the real company culture. But social scoring cannot work the other way around in a free society.

Stone From High Priest's Breastplate Discovered?

Sometimes incredible stories are actually true, and in this case, experts agree that a small onyx stone, claimed to be given to a Knight Templar over 1,000 years ago and handed down through one family from generation to generation, is actually what the present owner claims: a gem from the breastplate of the High Priest in Jerusalem.
A Prophetic Stone?
The stones of the choshen mishpat,  the High Priest's breastplate, were referred to in the Bible as the urim v'tummim, a phrase that defies translation.

Thought Police Crackdown - Now Veggie Tales Is Racist

News Image BY MICHAEL BROWN/ASKDRBROWN.ORG DECEMBER 07, 2018   
Before you read another word of this article, let me assure you that this is not a parody. Every word that follows is true. You can decide for yourself whether my sarcastic commentary is merited.
In the increasingly bizarre world in which we live today, a world dictated by an all-encompassing, radical PC culture, you must guard every word you speak, lest you offend someone's sensitivities. Everything has become a micro-aggression of sorts.
'White Campus'
You cannot dream anymore of a "white Christmas." What could me more racist than that?
Accordingly, University College in London had to apologize last December for dreaming of a "white campus" - meaning a snow-covered campus, with explicit reference to Bing Crosby's 1942 "White Christmas" song. Their official statement said, "We chose our words very poorly yesterday....We're sorry and we'll choose our words more carefully in the future." How terribly insensitive!
Today, you cannot speak of "man hours" or urge someone to "man up" or refer to "mankind" or even say "man oh man!" That is so sexist!
Accordingly, it was reported in 2016 that "a new inclusive language policy from administrators at Princeton University is seeking to end the usage of gender-specific words like 'man' on campus."
But all this is so antique, so 2016 and 2017. Now, at the end of 2018, we are much more woke. Our sensitivities have been sharpened and our passions deepened. The thought police are now everywhere.

The Palestinians No One Talks About
image: http://prophecynewswatch.com/images/recent/pagirldec072018.jpg
News Image BY BASSAM TAWIL/GATESTONE INSTITUTE DECEMBER 07, 2018    
According to the human rights watchdog that monitors the situation of Palestinians in Syria, the number of Palestinians killed in Syria since the beginning of the civil war there in 2011 now stands at 3,903. Another 1,712 Palestinians in that country have been arrested by the Syrian authorities, and 316 are listed as missing.
The latest victim was identified as Ahmed Abdullah Balbisi who, according to the human rights group, died of torture in a Syrian prison eight years after his incarceration. The group said that Balbisi was arrested then for participating in peaceful demonstrations organized by the Syrian opposition. Balbisi is the latest victim added to the 3,903 Palestinians killed in Syria during the past seven years. His death was reported by the group on November 22.
A day earlier, the human rights group reported that two other Palestinians, Mohammed Khalil al-Kurdi and Wael Abu Hamdeh, died due to lack of proper medical treatment. On November 19, reports surfaced that a third, Mohammed Ahmed Farhat, was killed during an exchange of gunfire between the Syrian army and the Islamic State (ISIS) terrorist group.
Last week, reports noted that a Palestinian man, Nael Abd Al-Raheem, was kidnapped and killed by ISIS in Aleppo's northeastern city of Al-Bab.

Canadian Christians Branded As "UnCanadian" For Traditional Religious Beliefs

Attacks on freedom of religion and freedom of conscience are a near-constant in Canadian news cycles of late, from physicians fighting in court for the right not to refer for procedures they find immoral to religious schools battling the government in court to maintain the independence and integrity of their institutions. 
Many religious views have been recast by many progressive politicians and academics (with the obedient acquiescence of the media) as hateful and even vicious, and as such it is open season on those who dare to hold these views and worse, speak of them aloud.
So I am not surprised that a recent study by the Angus Reid Institute in partnership with Cardus, a conservative think tank based out of Ottawa, indicated that only 59% of Canadians say that religious freedom makes our country a better place, leaving a full 41% that presumably feel that religious freedom makes our country a worse place, or at least feel ambivalent about a fundamental freedom. Ray Pennings of Cardus broke it down recently in the Hamilton Spectator:

Silicon Valley Sharia

This is a tale of two young, outspoken women in media.
One is a liberal tech writer. The other is an enterprising conservative new media reporter. One has achieved meteoric success and now works at a top American newspaper. The other has been de-platformed and marginalized. Their wildly different fates tell you everything you need to know about Silicon Valley's free speech double standards.
Some smug elites will downplay Twitter's disparate treatment of these users by arguing that private tech corporations can do whatever they want and that no First Amendment issues have been raised. But this battle is about much more than free speech rights. It's about whether the high-and-mighty progressives who monopolize global social media platforms truly believe in nurturing a free speech culture.
By punishing politically incorrect speech and making punitive examples of free thinkers, tech titans are enforcing their own authoritarian version of Silicon Valley sharia -- a set of both written and unwritten codes constricting expressions of acceptable thought in the name of "safety" and "civility."

Sixty years ago, when a group of missionaries were killed in the Amazon, the world and the church talked about their faith and courage. Boy, have times changed.
By now, you've undoubtedly heard about the death of John Allen Chau, the 27-year-old missionary who was killed by the natives of North Sentinel Island. And you've heard a lot of opining about his death, too.
North Sentinel Island is home to one of the last uncontacted people on earth. The Sentinelese, as they're called by outsiders, reject, often violently, any attempts at outside contact. In the thirteenth century Marco Polo described them as a "most violent and cruel generation who seem to eat everybody they catch."
Not much has changed since. Thus, no one knows much about them at all. No one is even sure how many people live on the island.
Chau's death drew immediate comparisons to the story of Jim Elliot, one of the five American missionaries killed by Auca natives of the Amazonian Ecuador in 1952. His story was told in the 1957 classic "Through Gates of Splendor," by his wife Elisabeth.

A Whole Country Of Marc Lamont Hills
image: http://prophecynewswatch.com/images/recent/parivertoseadec062018.jpg
News Image BY STEPHEN FLATOW/JNS.ORG DECEMBER 06, 2018 
CNN has fired commentator Marc Lamont Hill for giving a speech in which he called for a "free Palestine from the river to the sea." In other words, he means the destruction of Israel.
But let's not forget about a much bigger problem: an entire generation of Palestinian Arabs who want to create "Palestine, from the river to the sea."
The Palestinian Authority has posted a deeply disturbing photo on the official Facebook page of the P.A. Presidential Guard. It shows an Arab boy who looks to be 5 or 6 years old, holding a Palestinian flag and flashing a V sign.
That's not the peace sign that antiwar protesters used to make during the Vietnam war. In Palestinian culture, it's the "V-for-victory" sign. As in, victory over Israel.
Behind the boy is a huge map, twice his size, labeled "Palestine." Now if the Palestinian Authority was really interested only in a state along the 1967 lines--as J Street and other pro-Palestinian apologists claim--then presumably the P.A.'s map of "Palestine" would reflect that.
No such luck. The map of "Palestine" covers all of Israel. All of it.

CNN's Marc Lamont Hill Fired After Calling For Elimination Of Israel

News Image BY MICHAEL BROWN/ASKDRBROWN.ORG NOVEMBER 30, 2018
Share this article:  
Far-left CNN commentator Marc Lamont Hill has been terminated from the network after using language that indicated he supported the elimination of Israel.  
"Marc Lamont Hill is no longer under contract with CNN," Matt Dornic, a network spokesman, said Thursday.
Hill has protested on Twitter claiming he has been misunderstood however no amount of spin will change what he said.
The meaning was clear and unmistakable.  Specifically, he called for "political action, grassroots action, local action, and international action, that will give us what justice requires -- and that is a free Palestine from the river to the sea."
Why do I (and a host of other commentators and news outlets) feel so sure that Prof. Hill was actually calling for the end of the Jewish State?
First, Hill has a history of blatantly anti-Israel and even anti-Semitic comments. What he said yesterday was nothing new.  Hill has long supported the boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) movement against Israel.
Hill most recently drew condemnation from Jewish groups over his continued support of antisemitic Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan.

The Dying Church - 100 Churches Will Close This Week

America is littered with thousands upon thousands of church buildings that aren't being used anymore.  As you will see below, between 6,000 and 10,000 churches are dying in the United States every single year, and that means that more than 100 will die this week alone.  
And of course thousands of others are on life support.  All over the country this weekend, small handfuls of people will gather in huge buildings which once boasted very large congregations.  At one time, America was widely considered to be "a Christian nation", but that really isn't true anymore.  
As an excellent article in The Atlantic has noted, even though most Americans still consider themselves to be "Christian", the numbers are telling us a very different story...
Many of our nation's churches can no longer afford to maintain their structures--6,000 to 10,000 churches die each year in America--and that number will likely grow. Though more than 70 percent of our citizens still claim to be Christian, congregational participation is less central to many Americans' faith than it once was. 
Most denominations are declining as a share of the overall population, and donations to congregations have been falling for decades. Meanwhile, religiously unaffiliated Americans, nicknamed the "nones," are growing as a share of the U.S. population.
In fact, the "nones" have risen from just 6 percent of the population in 1991 to 25 percent today.  That makes them the single largest "religious group" in the United States.
Today, less than 20 percent of all Americans attend church on a regular basis.  As a result, churches are dying in very large numbers, and this is a trend that appears to be accelerating.  According to Thom S. Rainer of Lifeway, when you break the numbers down it means that "around 100-200 churches will close this week"...
Between 6,000 and 10,000 churches in the U.S. are dying each year. That means around 100-200 churches will close this week. The pace will accelerate unless our congregations make some dramatic changes.

A recent scientific study confirmed what students of the Bible have known all along: a catastrophe from the heavens destroyed all life in the area of the Dead Sea many thousands of years ago.
After a decade of digging, archaeologist Phillip Silvian of Trinity Southwest University in Albuquerque reported on his research on the Dead Sea area last week at the annual meeting of the American Schools of Oriental Research.
Silvia led excavations at five large sites on the Jordanian side of the Jordan River. According to Silvia, the 15 square-mile circular Middle Ghor was a fertile plain, populated continuously for at least 2,500 hundred years. Some form of catastrophe 3,700 years ago brought this to a sudden end, wiping out all of the estimated 40,000 to 65,000 people who inhabited the area at the time.
Studies of the remains of 120 small settlements in the region showed signs of extreme, collapse-inducing heat and wind. Pottery was discovered to have been exposed to heat so intense that it melted into glass. Zircon crystals in those glassy coats formed within one second at extremely high temperatures, perhaps as hot as the surface of the sun. Pottery fragments discovered at the Tall el-Hammam site contained tiny, spherical mineral grains that apparently rained down on the area.
The event was so catastrophic that the area remained unpopulated for 600 years.

Actually, quite a few things are going wrong. So much so that even members of the government are expressing concern.
Sweden is the most cashless society in the world
The change is happening fast in the European country.
"No cash accepted" signs are becoming an increasingly common sight in shops and eateries across Sweden as payments go digital and mobile...
...Sweden is widely regarded as the most cashless society on the planet. Most of the country's bank branches have stopped handling cash; many shops, museums and restaurants now only accept plastic or mobile payments...
...Last year, the amount of cash in circulation in Sweden dropped to the lowest level since 1990 and is more than 40 per cent below its 2007 peak. The declines in 2016 and 2017 were the biggest on record...

So what motivates most Americans to do what they do?  Well, a new survey that was just released by the Pew Research Center has some rather startling results.  
When people were asked an open-ended question about what gives them a sense of purpose and meaning in life, 69 percent mentioned family, 34 percent mentioned career, 23 percent mentioned "money" and only 20 percent mentioned faith.
In other words, Americans find more meaning and purpose in life from money and from their careers than they do from faith.

Assisted Suicide & Manipulating The Vulnerable

No matter what advocates claim, in the end, assisted suicide will eventually lead to the most vulnerable among us being pressured to die.
Graham Morant, a 68-year-old man from Australia, was recently convicted by a Queensland court and sentenced to ten years in prison. His crime was counseling his wife to commit suicide.
Morant is believed to be the first person in Australia to ever be convicted for doing this. Which means that Morant's other "offense" was that he was guilty of being Australian instead of Belgian or Dutch.
Here's the story: In 2014, 56-year-old Jennifer Morant was found dead in her car alongside a gas generator. A note found nearby read "Please don't resuscitate me." Jennifer Morant had suffered from chronic back pain, depression, and anxiety. Her husband claimed she had twice attempted suicide before the attempt that was, tragically, successful.

Israel's Kindness Is Repaid With Terror

Share this article:
Israel gives the Palestinian Arabs self-rule in large sections of Judea-Samaria, and they use it to promote terrorism.
Israel releases Palestinian terrorists from prison as a gesture, and the newly freed prisoners resume engaging in terrorism.
Israel permits Arab residents of Gaza--enemy territory--special permits so that they can receive medical care in Israeli hospitals or to carry out business transactions in Israel, and they use those privileges to assist terror cells.
Anybody notice a pattern here?
This week's discovery of a huge Hamas terrorist network in the Palestinian territories is chock full of disturbing lessons.
Let's start with the very fact that such a network, directed by the Hamas regime in Gaza, has been operating with near impunity throughout the areas controlled by the Palestinian Authority.
The P.A. has one of the largest per-capita security forces in the world. Yet for some reason, they never noticed all these Hamas terrorists running around. It was the Israeli security services, the Shin Bet, which once again had to carry out the anti-terror operations that the P.A. refuses to undertake.
"Hundreds" of members of the terror network were captured, the Israeli news media reported this week. Not 20, not 80, but hundreds! They were planning "to conduct large-scale bombing attacks," and had been instructed by their commanders to "select crowded sites as targets for the attacks ... trains, buses, hotels and restaurants."
Sites were scouted in order to kill as many Jews as possible. Pittsburgh-style.
The discovery of the network began with the arrest of a Hamas terrorist named Osweis Rajoub from the village of Dura, near Hebron. Dura has been under the complete control of the P.A. since 1995. It also has more than its share of residents who have been involved in terror incidents.

The Next U.S. Housing Crisis Has Arrived

Things just continue to get even worse for the U.S. housing industry.  New homes sales have been absolutely plummeting, homebuilder stocks have lost over a third of their value, and existing home sales just posted their biggest decline since 2014.  
For years, we had been witnessing a real estate boom in the United States, but now that has officially ended.  It is starting to feel like 2008 all over again, and many of those that work in the industry are really starting to freak out.  The Federal Reserve has been aggressively raising interest rates, and it is having the exact same effect on the housing industry that it did just before the last recession.
It wasn't supposed to be this way.  A supposedly "booming" economy was supposed to lead to a surge in demand for housing, but instead sales of existing homes had an absolutely terrible month in October...
Sales of previously owned U.S. homes posted their largest annual decline since 2014 in October, as the housing market continues to sputter due to higher mortgage rates that are reducing home affordability.
And this certainly was not an anomaly.  Existing home sales have been down on a yearly basis for quite some time, and it doesn't appear that things will turn around any time soon.
Just look at what is happening in California.  Not too long ago prices were soaring, but now a luxury estate has just sold for more than 50 percent off.
That would have been unthinkable just a few months ago.

Oxford Bans Christian Group Over LGBT Claims Threat To Physical, Mental Safety

Share this article:
Conservative Christian organizations continue to find their ability to operate on college campuses under fire.  The latest act of discrimination came against the group Christian Concern when it tried to host one of its Wilberforce Academy events at Oxford University in the UK.  The Wilberforce Academy’s mission is to "train and equip students on what it means to proclaim Christ in public life".
The student body of the Junior Common Room (JCR) rejected Christian Concern's booking at Lady Margaret Hall by a vote of 81 to 8 with only 2 students abstaining. Now the final decision rests with the government body of the JCR student association.
Outside the official vote, there has already been heated debate on the issue between students who perceive the Christian beliefs of Christian Concern as a threat to their lifestyles and others who see efforts to ban and silence Christian views on campus as a threat to free speech in an academic environment that purports to prize freedom of thought. 
But those who campaigned against allowing Christian Concern to use the campus did so not only with the excuse that they found Christian views to be offensive, but also that they felt that those attending the Christian training would present a "real threat to the physical and mental safety of students" still on campus.

What Christian Leaders Teach About Blessing Israel

News Image BY DR. RIVKAH LAMBERT ADLER/BREAKING ISRAEL NEWS NOVEMBER 26, 2018
Share this article: 
When Israel-loving Christians meet with Jews, Genesis 12:3 is frequently mentioned. To gain a deeper understanding of that verse, and of the necessity for Christians to bless Israel, Breaking Israel News interviewed four prominent Christian leaders whose ministries focus on Israel.
In their own way, each of the four leaders we spoke with connected Christian responsibility to bless Israel with the redemptive process at the End of Days.
For more than 25 years, Dean Bye of Return Ministries has been involved in "education and facilitating projects related to the 'return and restoration of Israel' for the international Church community."
His work inspires him to challenge other Christians to follow in his footsteps. As he explained to Breaking Israel News, "It is vital that a Christian understand and cooperate with the covenants made with Israel, which are foundational to the redemptive plans of God for the whole earth."
Bye wants Christians to know that they stand to benefit personally from blessing Israel. He elaborated. "When a Christian, motivated from a love of God, incorporates a lifestyle that blesses Israel, as instructed in Genesis 12:3, they can believe [in] the greater blessings of God in their own life, family, church and nation.
"As I trust and believe in the power of the law of gravity, so do I trust and believe in God's covenant made with Abraham that determines blessing or curses for family, church and even a nation."

Did Israel-Hamas Ceasefire Strengthen Hamas For Next Round Of Fighting?
image: http://prophecynewswatch.com/images/recent/hamasoct062016.jpg
News Image BY ARIEAL BEN SOLOMON/JNS.ORG NOVEMBER 26, 2018
Share this article:  
The ongoing violence perpetrated by the Hamas-ruled Gaza Strip and the recent barrage of rocket fire--more than 450 rockets and mortars in less than 48 hours--pointed at Israel's south had an unintended consequence. 
In effect, it caused an internal political crisis in Israel, shaking up the government, and both angering and worrying the general public.
For that instability, Hamas is claiming victory, even taking credit for it.
The terrorist organization achieved three main things by its ongoing attacks: demonstrating that Israel's deterrence in the form of military retribution by the Israel Defense Forces has been weakened, destabilizing Israel's government and gaining a $60 million contribution from Qatar.
Hamas also gained a repose in which it can now continue arming itself with more advanced weaponry, preparing itself for the next round.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu reached a ceasefire with Hamas, but not without a domestic cost. Israelis were infuriated at the continued onslaught--southern cities, towns and farmland have been plagued by arson fires and nearby Palestinian rioters attempting to breach the Israeli-Gaza border since March--so much so that it prompted Israel's Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman to resign. That action set off a weeklong frenzy that many believed would culminate in the calling of early elections early next year.
As usual, Netanyahu used his diplomatic skills to maintain his coalition, even winding up garnering the post of defense minister for himself.
A substantial number of Israelis are disappointed with the government's handling of the rocket attacks, saying the response (or lack of one) only encouraged the enemy. Social media was replete with sarcasm on the weakness of Israel's reaction to what could have been much more disastrous if the Iron Dome missile-defense system hadn't been in place, even though that, too, became a target of criticism for not stopping enough of the incoming weaponry.

LGBT Activists Next Target: Charitable Status Of Churches

Over the past decade, attacks on Canada's Christian communities by LGBT activists have escalated significantly. 
In Alberta, Education Minister David Eggen is threatening to defund and possibly shut down religious schools that do not accept Gay-Straight alliance clubs. Canada's Supreme Court recently ruled against Trinity Western University, a private Christian institution in British Columbia, for having students agree to a lifestyle contract upon enrollment. 
And of course, attempts to force schools to teach gender ideology are taking place simultaneously in nearly every province across the country.
I've seen many Canadian Christians post articles describing these events on social media, often accompanied by the million dollar question: "What's next?" 
I suspect that I've known the answer to that question for some time, but recent events in Ontario indicate that it could happen sooner than I'd thought. The potential catalyst is a story that has been reported on breathlessly by Canadian media for just over a week now.
A Bowmanville woman, Kimberley Mills, was attending the Calvary Baptist Church in Oshawa, Ontario. Calvary Baptist, like most churches (and all Christian churches for the past two thousand years prior to a few decades ago) holds to the traditional biblical teaching on sexual morality. 
Mills, however, has been in a relationship with her partner Meghan Fowler for several years. Despite the many liberal churches she could have attended that would have been more than thrilled to celebrate her relationship, Mills chose to attend a church that adheres to what the Bible says about sexuality, and even to serve as youth leader.

 The Christian Temptation To Abandon The Culture Wars

News Image BY MICHAEL BROWN/ASKDRBROWN.ORG NOVEMBER 21, 2018
Share this article:    
Let's put politics aside for the moment and let's just focus on the culture (although politics and culture certainly intersect). There are times when it's tempting for Christians to think, "There's really nothing we can do about the culture. Let's just preach the gospel and forget the culture wars. Let's just tell people about Jesus, teach the Bible and live good, moral lives ourselves."
I understand the temptation, but it really cannot work. The gospel and culture are as interrelated as the rain and the lake. The one feeds into the other. And if we abandon the culture, we imperil our ability to preach the gospel freely.
The Temptation to Abandon Cultural Issues
Before I explain this, though, allow me to explain the nature of the temptation to abandon cultural issues and just concentrate on the gospel.
We reason to ourselves, "Look, things are only getting worse in the world around us, and all we're doing is trying to plug up the holes in a dam with our own hands. We're running out of fingers, and soon enough, the inevitable will happen and that dam will come crashing down. It's not a matter of 'if,' only of 'when.'"

 Watchdog Groups Decry 'Innate Bias' Of Media Towards Israel

Share this article:
Coverage of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict has long been a sore spot for Israel and its supporters. For years, the pro-Israel community has accused the media of bias in their reporting, especially during times of near-war skirmishes.
The most recent clashes in Gaza were no exception, with some media watchdog groups claiming that coverage of the flare-up, which saw more than 450 rockets fired towards Israel in less than 48 hours, failed to take into account the months-long attacks by Palestinian rioters, prompted by Hamas, upon southern Israel leading up to the rocket attacks.
"Journalists never cover the Gaza situation fairly. Never," Dan Gainor, vice president of business and culture at the Media Research Center, a media watchdog group, told JNS.
"Hamas has been trying to tear down the border fence, has sent terrorists across the border, and has launched rockets and fire kites into Israel, but the media have almost completely ignored every attack," he said.
"They won't call them 'terrorists,' even though the U.S. considers Hamas a terror organization, and they claim 'dozens' of rockets," said Gainor. "There have been hundreds and hundreds. That's not journalism. It's public relations."
An example of such bias occurred at a State Department briefing last week when a reporter asked department spokesperson Heather Nauert, "Do you condemn the Israeli action?"

 Palestinians Celebrate UN Anniversary "Rights Of The Child" With Hate

Nov. 20 marks the date when the U.N. General Assembly adopted the Declaration of the Rights of the Child (1959) and the Convention of the Rights of the Child (1989).
While the Palestinian Authority joined the U.N.'s Convention on the Rights of the Child in 2014, the Palestinian leadership is abusing its own children, presenting terrorists as heroes, "martyrs" as role models, and glorifying the murder of Jews and Israelis.
In the decades of monitoring the Palestinian Authority's open sources, Palestinian Media Watch (PMW) has exposed that the P.A. Ministry of Education teaches that terrorist "martyrs" are "heroes" and "the crown of their nation, the symbol of its glory, the best of the best." 
Official P.A. TV has Palestinian children recite that "Our enemy, Zion, is Satan with a tail," and that "Jews are the most evil among creations ... they descend from apes and pigs." TV cartoons teach young kids that "Jews work on earth for Satan, to try to destroy Muhammad."
Sports tournaments, school books, cultural events and even music videos glorify terrorists and encourage Palestinian youth to aspire to kill and be killed.
What we have found in more than 20 years of monitoring the P.A.--through the broad range of institutions and infrastructures that they control--are messages in Arabic of hatred, indoctrination and incitement, while in English, to the world, the P..A, the ruling Fatah Party, and leader Mahmoud Abbas present themselves as moderates who are Israel's peace partners.
Meanwhile, murderers, such as the infamous Dalal Mughrabi (who in 1978 with a group of terrorists hijacked a bus and murdered 37 civilians, including 12 children) is immortalized by the Palestinian Authortiy naming schools, town squares and community centers after her.

Oil, Copper And Lumber Are All Telling Us The Next Economic Downturn Is Here

News Image BY MICHAEL SNYDER/ECONOMIC COLLAPSE BLOG NOVEMBER 20, 2018
Share this article:
Oil, copper and lumber are all telling us the exact same thing, and it isn't good news for the global economy.  When economic activity is booming, demand for commodities such as oil, copper and lumber goes up and that generally causes prices to rise.  
But when economic activity is slowing down, demand for such commodities falls and that generally causes prices to decline.  In recent weeks, we have witnessed a decline in commodity prices unlike anything that we have witnessed in years, and many are concerned that this is a very clear indication that hard times are ahead for the global economy.
Let's talk about oil first.  The price of oil peaked in early October, but since that time it has fallen more than 25 percent, and the IEA is warning of "relatively weak" demand out of Asia and Europe...
The International Energy Agency said on Wednesday that while US demand for oil has been "very robust," demand in Europe and developed Asian countries "continues to be relatively weak." The IEA also warned of a "slowdown" in demand in developing nations such as India, Brazil and Argentina caused by high oil prices, weak currencies and deteriorating economic activity.
"The outlook for the global economy has deteriorated," the IEA wrote.
Meanwhile, the price of copper has been declining for quite some time now.  The price of copper also fell substantially just before the last recession, and many analysts are pointing out that "Dr. Copper" is now waving a red flag once again...
The message of weakening demand on the oil front was reinforced by the falling price of copper. The base metal is often referred to as "Dr. Copper" on its presumed ability to forecast the peaks and troughs of business cycles since it is used in different areas of the economy such as homes, factories and electricity generation. Copper has served as a leading indicator of both recessions and economic booms.

Facial recognition is fast becoming embedded in everyday life. But as it improves, the technology is raising new privacy concerns.
"Most American adults are in a face-recognition database accessible to law enforcement," said Clare Garvie, a senior associate at Georgetown Law’s Center on Privacy & Technology, who studies the technology and its privacy implications.
Facial technology can now be found in more schools and retail stores to help identify people who may pose a security risk. Some stores are also using facial recognition in an attempt to determine shopper sentiment, giving retailers the opportunity to adjust their sales pitch. One company in Israel claims its software can flag potential terrorists by scanning facial features and expressions alone.

There Will Never Be Peace When Palestinians Turn Murders Into Heroes

Share this article:
Palestinian incitement against Israel runs rampant in the West Bank and Gaza, with Palestinian school textbooks full of hatred and including maps of the Middle East often minus Israel. The Palestinian Authority constantly incites against Israel in its television and radio programs, so it comes as no surprise that Palestinian society regards Israelis as the enemy.
That said, it's also no shock that many Palestinians have carried out terrorist attacks on Israelis. One attack, in particular, stands out for Micah Avni.
Shortly after 10 a.m. on a beautiful Tuesday morning on Oct. 13, 2015, the No. 78 Egged bus turned the corner in Jerusalem's Armon Hanatziv neighborhood. When it stopped at the bus stop, two Palestinian men--Baha Alyan and Bilal Abu Ghanem, both residents from the adjacent neighborhood abel Mukaber--boarded the bus, one armed with a gun and the other with a knife. 
Shortly afterwards, they started indiscriminately shooting and stabbing passengers. A security guard at the scene was able to overpower and kill Alyan. Ghanem locked the bus doors in an attempt to stop security forces from boarding--and to stop passengers from fleeing. Police officers who had arrived at the scene opened fire at him from outside the bus. Shortly after, he was arrested and eventually jailed.
Avni's father, Richard Lakin, 76, was a passenger on that bus. He was shot in the head and stabbed multiple times. He was evacuated by an emergency medical team and hospitalized in the intensive-care unit at Hadassah Ein Kerem Hospital in Jerusalem, where he underwent multiple surgeries. He died two weeks later on Oct. 27.

Christian Opposition To Israel Requires A Christian Response

It's not that Israel and the Jewish community do not have any friends in the American Protestant mainline. They do. The problem is that these friends keep losing the fights at the national gatherings of mainline churches. 
They fight well enough to remind Jewish friends and observers that they are still on the job, but not well enough to stymie or defeat the anti-Israel propagandists who have hijacked the prophetic voices of the mainline churches.
Given their dependent status, Jewish leaders in the United States are not in any position to complain about the ineffective response offered by their friends and allies in the Christian world, but they can no longer kid themselves about what has happened in the American mainline. And neither can Christians themselves.
Despite the strenuous efforts of both Christians and Jews, mainline churches have become persistent sources of anti-Jewish invective in American society, and therefore cannot speak credibly in opposition to the rising tide of antisemitic violence that has manifested itself the Middle East, Europe, and most recently the US.
This is a bad thing.
