The CARMEL ALERT  Dec 25th 2009
A compilation of news reports from the past week for the information of those committed to praying
 for Israel  and the salvation of the Jewish  people

David’s Comment:  Turn Up The Global Warming  –  Its Freezing Outside !!!
Sorry about the sarcastic title for such a serious subject, but the Climate debate is becoming ridiculous.  The Copenhagen conference on “Climate Change” is now behind us and like many other similar attempts by our secular humanistic leaders to fix the world’s problems, this one also seems to be a load of hot air.  As we have seen in previous world conferences, it is very difficult for the leaders to overcome cultural differences and financial interests, to be able to come to a firm agreement.  At least they have began to use a more correct term for the issue. It began with the politicians and the news media constantly referring to “Global Warming”. however they are now more correctly calling it “Climate Change”

What bothers me is how blind or stupid the news media seems to be.  It is very obvious that they constantly turn a blind eye to the real facts behind the Israel / Arab conflict, and now it is becoming very obvious that they are doing the same with their new “Palestine” – the Global Warming issue.  Just as there is no such thing as a Palestinian people, and never has been,  there is no such thing as Global Warming.  Many places in the world are colder than they have been for decades.  It started snowing in Denver, Colorado, weeks earlier than normal.  New Zealand had its coldest winter for many years, and there are other places where the temperatures are lower, not higher.  And there are places that are warmer that they have been for several years, so we can clearly see that there is no Global Warming going on, but I concede that there is Climate Change – some places are colder and some places are warmer.  So 10 points and a Christmas present to whoever is responsible for the correct change of terminology.

The conference closed at the weekend with ‘Superstar / Messiah’  Barack Obama making his grand entry at the last minute, in the hope of being the catalyst to secure an international agreement, and securing an even greater  “Messiah” status in the eyes of a world desparate for saviour, but not a saviour who represents the true Creator of the Universe.  They prefer the kind of Messiah who like themselves opposes every good instruction that the Creator YHVH has given us to live by.  Thankfully Obama failed on both counts and slowly more and more people who voted him in, are beginning to realise that the US president. in not the great Messiah they hoped he would be

However it seems that most of the news media are still seriously blinded to the truth behind almost everything that is going on in the world today.  I find it absolutely ludicrous that while this Climate conference was taking place, and many Europe and parts of the USA were experiencing their coldest December for more than 50 years.  The snow storm in Washington DC was so severe as Air Force One landed with Obama on board, that the huge blue and white Boeing 747 was almost invisible.  As the ‘greenies’, the policitians and the media were getting out of shape over the claims that our vehicles, industry, and even too many cows were causing the temperatures to rise, placing the future of life on Earth in doubt, millions of people were freezing, and tens of thousands of other people in the UK, Europe and the northern east coast of the USA were left stranded as road, rail and air transport was closed down by the coldest December weather in 50 years and more.

Come on now, who are you trying to kid ?  If this is Global Warming we need much more of it !!!
 
For all of you who are preparing to celebrate the birth of Yeshua, Josie, Jordan, Stefan & Keren and I pray that you will all have an abundantly blessed Christmas with family and friends, and that the Holy One of Israel will prosper you in every way in 2010.

The Lord bless you as you bless Israel by standing in defense of her right to exist on the land given to the Jewish people by the God of Israel.  Lets pray that Israel will turn back to their God.  Do not be silent, but share this with your fellow Christians, share it with your pastors, and with anyone you have a chance to speak to. Lets also pray for that breakthrough to the Muslims,  and please remember to pray for all of the soldiers in the IDF -they are defending and fighting for the Kingdom of God.

Shabbat Shalom …. David & Josie 

THIS WEEKS NEWS REPORTS 

1. Obama: Israel Will Eventually Attack Iran    Israel Today News   Dec 18th
   US President Barack Obama warned Chinese Prime Minister Hu Jintao in Beijing last month that Washington can only prevent Israel from attacking Iran for so long, senior Israeli diplomats revealed to Ha’aretz on Thursday.   Obama was in China to convince Hu to stop opposing international efforts to sanction Iran over its defiant nuclear program. Obama warned that eventually Israel will feel the threat to its existence is too great and will attack Iran’s nuclear facilities, and there will be nothing the US can do to stop it.   Washington believed the visit to be a success when China backed international condemnation of Iran a week after Obama returned to the US. But in the past two weeks, China has returned to its previous policies by opposing international efforts to impose new sanctions on the Islamic Republic.  Both Obama and Israel also hoped to decrease China’s dependency on Iranian oil, which provides a very steady income for Tehran.   Meanwhile, the Israeli and American intelligence communities are leading a global effort to uncover and shut down clandestine Iranian purchasing networks that are busy buying up the materials needed for Iran’s nuclear program.  One such network was exposed recently in Taiwan.
Please pray that the Israeli government will make God led decisions concerning Iran

2. Israel: This Is Our Last Gesture to Palestinians   Israel Today News  Dec 20th
    Israeli Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman on Thursday said Israel is getting fed up with making peace gestures to the Palestinians, only to be slapped in the face, and that the current 10-month settlement freeze will be the last gesture offered by Israel.  “Now the time for Israeli gestures has ended. The Palestinians can decide whether they want to come to the negotiations table or not,” Lieberman told students at Ariel University Center. “The ball is in the Palestinian court.”   Lieberman reminded those listening that the temporary settlement freeze is not the first gesture implemented since Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu took office in March. Netanyahu also complied with Palestinian demands that he accept the creation of a sovereign Palestinian state as the outcome of peace talks, and has removed numerous military checkpoints in the so-called “West Bank.”
    But instead of responding in kind, or at least returning to the negotiating table, the Palestinians have rejected each Israeli gesture and “moderate” Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas has repeatedly threatened to step down over what he calls phony Israeli offers.  “We cannot tolerate a situation in which (Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas) keeps threatening to resign and shouting ‘support me,'” said Lieberman.   If the Palestinians do not take the current gesture seriously, Lieberman said it will be Israel’s last and it will be fully reversed. “Let be clear – in 10 months construction in the Judea and Samaria will resume in an open and transparent manner.”
Please pray that the whole peace process comes to a grinding halt and that Israel will hold on to every inch of God-given land

Deal for Gilad Shalit at Least 10 Days Off   Israel Today News   December 23rd
3.     This is not the first time media reports have suggested an imminent prisoner exchange between Israel and Hamas that would see abducted Israeli soldier Gilad Shalit finally freed from Gaza. And if reports this week are accurate, that deal won’t be hammered out for at least another 10 days, if ever.  Few details of the deal being discussed are known, except that Israel is ready to free about 1,000 jailed Palestinian terrorists in exchange for Shalit. The deal is reportedly being held up by Israel’s insistence that the more notorious of those criminals be exiled from the region. Israel is also refusing to release about seven of the terrorists demanded by Hamas due to the severity of their crimes.  Hamas on Wednesday rejected Israel’s latest positions, but said it would continue negotiations in order to sway Israel and get its way.
     Israeli organizations that represent the victims of Palestinian terror note that terrorists released in previous prisoner exchanges went on to kill 200 Israelis, and that Israel should not make the same mistake in its quest to win Shalit’s freedom.  Palestinian media outlets have also acknowledged that Israel’s willingness to release hard-core terrorists for captured or even dead Israeli soldiers is incentive to continue the kidnappings.   Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said he is painfully aware of the dilemma.  “I face two vital principles – the desire to free hostages and the desire to protect Israeli citizens from an attack in the future,” Ha’aretz quoted Netanyahu as telling concerned families of terror victims on Tuesday.
Please pray that the Israeli government will Not go ahead with the prisoner exchange,  but that Gilad will escape or be rescued

4. Palestinian  Gunmen Kill Israeli Motorist     Israel Today News  Dec 24th
    Palestinian terrorist gunmen shot and killed an Israeli motorist traveling in northern Samaria on Thursday. The attack occurred between the Jewish communities of Shavei Shomron and Einav.   The assailants managed to flee the scene, and a manhunt was launched to bring them to justice.  The last fatal terrorist shooting in Judea and Samaria occurred in March 2009.  In other terror-related news, security forces on Thursday revealed that a major traffic disruption last week on the highway that runs from northern Jerusalem to Tel Aviv had been caused by a roadside bomb.  The bomb had several firecrackers attached to it, which were supposed to set off the high-grade explosives. But only the firecrackers went off, possibly saving many lives. Israeli security forces destroyed the rest of the bomb in a controlled explosion.
Please pray that all acts of terror ill be exposed and thwarted before they happen

5.  Israel: US Coonsulate Car Tried to Run Over Checkpoint Guard    Jerusalem Post  Dec 25th
      A  dispute is rumbling between Israel and the US Consulate in Jerusalem after a US diplomatic car allegedly tried running over a Defense Ministry security guard recently at an IDF checkpoint in the West Bank. The car had been stopped after the occupants refused to present identification papers.   Israel is also furious that one of the consulate cars was found to have transported a Palestinian without permits between Jerusalem and the West Bank.   The identification of American diplomats from the consulate at IDF checkpoints has been a major sticking point for several years. In January 2008, the Civil Administration of Judea and Samaria filed complaints with the Foreign Ministry after both US Security Coordinator Lt.-Gen. Keith Dayton and then-consul-general Jacob Walles refused to roll down their windows or open their car doors and show identification papers at a checkpoint.  However, Israel’s ire reached a new level after an incident on November 13 in which a five-car convoy of consulate vehicles with diplomatic plates arrived at the Gilboa crossing.
     According to a detailed official Israel Police description of the incident obtained exclusively by The Jerusalem Post, the drivers refused to identify themselves or open a window or door. The drivers, according to the report, purposely blocked the crossing, tried running over one of the Israeli security guards stationed there and made indecent gestures at female guards. The entire incident was documented by cameras at the crossing.  Following the incident, the head of the police’s Security Department, Lt.-Cmdr. Meir Ben-Yishai, convened a meeting on November 18 at police headquarters in Jerusalem with the regional security officer at the consulate, Tim Laas. Also present were officials from the Defense Ministry and the Foreign Ministry, and the regional security officer at the US Embassy in Tel Aviv, Dan Power.    Ben-Yishai described additional violations by consulate workers, and referred to at least one case in which a female Palestinian without appropriate documentation was found in a diplomatic car. Defense officials told the Post that there had been other similar cases in the past. omeone,” Ben-Yishai said, according to the official police protocol. Ben-Yishai also said the drivers of the cars, from east Jerusalem, hid their Israeli identity cards and put stickers over their names on their consulate-issued identity cards, since, as they claimed, “they are in a diplomatic vehicle and cannot be touched.”

 6. Was Jimmy Carter’s Apology to Jews Genuine?   Israel Today News  Dec 23rd
    Former US President Jimmy Carter surprised many earlier this week when, after decades of antagonizing Israel, he published a letter of apology to Jews around the world for “stigmatizing” the Jewish state.  Carter’s outbursts and accusations against Israel and his acceptance of Hamas and other terror groups are well known. His 2006 book “Palestine: Peace Not Apartheid,” which laid the bulk of the blame for the lack of peace on Israel, was seen as the last nail in the coffin of a relationship that ostensibly began positively at Camp David in 1978.   So, Carter’s letter of apology struck many as odd, and on Tuesday it was revealed there may indeed have been ulterior motives.  Just one day after Carter’s letter was published, his grandson, Jason Carter, announced that he is planning a run for the Georgia state senate, with aspirations of a much grander political career. Having his grandfather tainted as a “Jew hater” would have greatly hindered that career.  Both Carter and his grandson denied that the apology had nothing to do with Jason’s upcoming electoral campaign, but the timing and the absolute reversal of the former president’s earlier sentiments have raised many questions.

7. Palestinians Ban British Choir for Performing with Israeli Orchestra   Israel today News  Dec 23rd
    The Palestinian Authority this week informed the Clare College Choir from Cambridge, England that its performances in eastern Jerusalem and Bethlehem had been cancelled after it dared to perform last week with the Israeli Camerta Orchestra.  The ban came after the London-based Palestinian Solidarity Campaign circulated a petition against the choir over its “indifference to Palestinian suffering,” evidenced by its willingness to perform with and for Israelis.  According to the boycott group, the Clare College Choir’s appearance in Israel had helped to promote it “as a normal state,” which the Palestinians and broader Arab world find unacceptable.  The choir’s director, himself a professed supporter of the “Palestinian cause,” said he was taken aback by the ban.
