$10 Billion

Saudi Arabia Urges Palestinians

To Get On Board With

The Trump Peace Plan

and Make Peace With Israel 

Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman has offered Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas $10 billion if he accepts US President Donald Trump’s plan for peace in the Middle East, also known as the “deal of the century,” the Lebanese newspaper Al Akhbar reported on Tuesday.

Referring to meetings between the Saudi crown prince and Abbas, the newspaper said that “according to information obtained by Al-Akhbar, Salman briefed Abbas about the details of the Trump Peace Plan and asked him to accept it.

Salman asked Abbas: What is the annual budget of your entourage? Abbas replied: I’m not a prince to have my own entourage.” 

At that stage, the Saudi crown prince asked Abbas “How much money does the Palestinian Authority and its ministers and employees need?”

Abbas replied that the Palestinians need $1 billion each year, the report said.

Bin Salman then offered Abbas the largest sum ever offered for accepting peace with Israel. He offered him $10 billion over a period of ten years if he accepts the US peace plan and has the Palestinian government’s base or capitol become Abu Dis, a suburb of Jerusalem instead of East Jerusalem.

Abbas, however, rejected the offer saying it would “mean the end of my political life,” the report added.

On 23 April, senior US presidential advisor, Jared Kushner, said that the American peace proposal would be unveiled after the Muslim month of fasting which ends in early June. 

Kushner continues tp stress that the deal is unique and not an effort to impose “US will on the Middle East”.

Israel Attacked – Guess Who Omar and Tlaib blame?

Israel Attacked – Guess Who Omar and Tlaib blame?

Who’s To Blame?

The terror groups Hamas and Islamic Jihad fired over 700 rockets into Israeli homes and communities this weekend. 

So who did the two most fiercely anti-Israel members of Congress blame?

Israel, of course.

The barrage killed four Israeli civilians and injured 234. This was a devastating attack. Rocket shrapnel hit the oncology wing of an Israeli hospital. Another missile landed in an empty kindergarten facility.

But the blame for all this carnage goes to Israel, say Dem. Rep. Ilhan Omar and Dem. Rep. Rashida Tlaib—harsh critics of Israel and the first two Muslim women in Congress.

Omar actually defends Hamas!

Instead of blaming the terror groups, which committed war crimes by attacking innocent Israelis, Omar defended them and cast Israel as the guilty party.

“How many more protesters must be shot, rockets must be fired, and little kids must be killed until the endless cycle of violence ends?” Omar tweeted. “The status quo of occupation and humanitarian crisis in Gaza is unsustainable.”

Occupation? That is astonishingly ignorant–especially from a member of Congress who sits on the House Foreign Affairs Committee.

Israel evacuated from Gaza in 2005–14 years ago. There is no Israeli “occupation” of Gaza. This woman is clueless.

And the blame for the humanitarian crisis engulfing the Gaza strip is entirely owned by Hamas.

Its harsh rule and failed policies have been ruinous. Youth unemployment is reportedly 70 percent in Gaza. But Hamas keeps its militants busy digging terror tunnels, as well as flying arson kites and explosive balloons into Israel.

Tlaib condemns Israel . . . and the New York Times!

But instead of condemning Hamas, Omar’s good friend, Rashida Tlaib, likewise puts the blame on Israel. Tlaib, a freshman lawmaker who celebrated her election wrapped in a Palestinian flag, took offense at this factual New York Times headline: “Gaza Militants Fire 250 Rockets and Israel Responds With Airstrikes.”

For Tlaib, the Times headline “feeds into the continued lack of responsibility on Israel who unjustly oppress & target Palestinian children and families.”

In Tlaib’s twisted thinking, the fault lies with Israel and shame on the New York Times for not saying so.

There’s just one word for this: Anti-Semitism. Faulting the Jewish state when it is struck by volley after volley of lethal rocket fire–all while holding the perpetrators, Hamas and Islamic Jihad, free from all blame–is textbook anti-Semitism.

Israel on the Brink of War with Iran as it’s Revealed that Palestinian Terror Group, Islamic Jihad, Is Waging War For Tehran by Proxy Against Israel

Three Israelis & 12 Palestinians

dead as crisis intensifies.

150 Iron Dome intercepts,

Here is the latest.

Iran behind escalation in Gaza!

“Why did the Islamic Jihad do this?” former national security adviser asks. “The answer is again and again and again – Iran.”

“Iran, through its proxy in Gaza, Islamic Jihad, is behind the escalation” says Israel’s former national security advisor Yaakov Amidror, reports the Jerusalem Post.

“Iran’s interest, Amidror said, is for Israel to embark on another major operation in Gaza, freeing up Tehran to do what it wants unhindered in Syria.

The Iranian idea, he said, is that ‘Israel will be busy focusing on Gaza and not have enough energy to deal with the building up of an independent war machine in Syria.’

Iranian pressure, Amidror hinted, is the only explanation for why Islamic Jihad would fire on an IDF patrol while its leaders were in Cairo talking about an arrangement with Israel.”

Iran Backs Islamic Jihad’s 8,000-Man Army in Gaza.
Hamas’ rival Islamic Jihad has built an 8,000-man army supported by Iran and “ready for martyrdom or victory.”

Israel Responds

With Airstrikes

UPDATE: “Senior Israeli Air Force Officer says over 600 rockets fired from the Gaza Strip,” reports a correspondent for the Jerusalem Post.

UPDATE: The Iron Dome is functioning at 86% accuracy, but Israelis officials caution that no defense is perfect and under such a heavy barrage some rockets are going to get through and do serious damage, even take lives.

UPDATE: “As of Sunday afternoon, 13 people in Israel were hit by rockets, missiles and mortar shells from the Gaza Strip. “Twelve people were also lightly injured running to bomb shelters, while 66 people received medical treatment after suffering anxiety attacks from the strikes.”

UPDATE: Eleven Palestinians have been hit in Gaza, reports Haaretz.

UPDATE: “Hamed Khoudary, 34, was killed in an Israeli airstrike less than an hour ago, while he was driving his car. He was responsible for transferring money from Iran to military factions in Gaza.

At least 150 rockets have been intercepted so far by the Iron Dome system, while 70% of the rockets have hit open fields, or malfunctioned and fallen into the Gaza Strip itself.

One rocket made a direct hit on a factory in the southern Israeli city of Ashkelon.

An Israeli car also took a direct hit, possibly from an anti-tank missile.

Three Israeli are now dead — a 58-year old father of four who was taking a break outside his bomb shelter when rockets landed nearby, and two people killed as a results of direct hits.

Three Israelis have also been critically wounded.

At least 80 Israeli civilians have been treated for stress and trauma.

The Israeli military says it has targeted some 40 sites throughout the Gaza Strip.

In a statement, the IDF says the targets include tunnels and underground bunkers, military bases, weapons factories and rocket launching sites. In addition, the military targeted a number of weapons caches that it says were hidden inside the homes of Hamas operatives ‘deliberately near civilian populations.

Please don’t stop praying for Israelis and Palestinians on both sides of the border.

Thank you so much.

Israel Under Attack

Rockets From Hamas and

Islamic Jihad in the Gaza Strip

More than 200 rockets and mortar shells have been fired at southern Israel by Hamas and Islamic Jihad terrorists in Gaza since early Saturday morning. At this moment, another barrage is underway.

The end time pace continues to escalate as Israel wages war on all fronts for their future.

Threats to Israel’s

Nuclear Facilities

and International Airport

Thus far, there have been three Israelis wounded. No number of Palestinian injuries have been reported yet, but it is likely that there will be many.

The rockets are reaching deeper into Israeli territory than usual. One rocket hit Beit Shemesh, a religious community about 30 minutes south of Jerusalem.

The onslaught — the most intense after months of calm — comes just days after Israel’s Holocaust Memorial, and just days before Israel celebrates Memorial Day and their 71st Independence Day this coming week.

For the first time, Israel’s nuclear facilities have come under threat. The Islamic Jihad terrorist group in Gaza has threatened to attack Israel’s nuclear reactor in Dimona and has also threatened to attack Israel’s Ben Gurion International Airport.

Prime Minister Netanyahu is currently holding an emergency meeting with senior military commanders at the IDF war room in Tel Aviv.

So far, IDF forces have launched at least 30 retaliatory air strikes, targeting Hamas and Islamic Jihad command centers and other military facilities inside the Gaza Strip.

                      Prayer Needed

  • Please pray for restoration of calm
  • Pray for wisdom for Israeli leaders to know how best to deal with the situation
  • Pray for the safety of Israeli citizens and families in the line of fire and pray for the suffering  Palestinians of Gaza to somehow be liberated from the Hellish Hamas tyranny that is ruining their lives.
