A treasure-trove of raw gold worth billions of dollars is believed to be sitting under Mount Eilat in southern Israel. Breaking Israel News has learned. In an exclusive interview, Rabbi Yehuda Glick, the Executive Director of The Temple Mount Heritage Foundation in Jerusalem. revealed the news, which had been kept under wraps for the last several years. Glick is perhaps best known for his life’s mission of assuring that the Temple Mount is accessible to all people from every religion who want to worship at the holy site. His dedication to the Temple Mount resulted in an October 2014 assassination attempt on his life by a Palestinian terrorist.
Shot four times in the chest. Glick has made a miraculous recovery and continues his work to open the Temple Mount to prayer for all people.
Glick told Breaking Israel News that there are billions of dollars worth in Mount Eilat, which he and his partner, Yehoshua Friedman, have received an exclusive license to unearth by the Israeli government.
Explaining the discovery, Glick said that everything began with Friedman, a Temple Mount researcher who had been studying each of the 1 2 unique stones set on the breastplate of the High Priest as described in the Bible. Each stone represents one of the 12 tribes of Israel.
During his studies. Friedman realized that without a geology background he could not properly appreciate the depths and meanings behind each of these stones. This led to his discovery that in 2007 gold had been found in the mountains of Eilat by an Australian research team, who later abandoned the dig because the value of gold at the time was not worth their efforts.

August 5, 2015 - Sharona Schwartz - In what’s been called an extraordinary find, Israeli archaeologists have discovered a wall full of drawings and inscriptions believed to have been created during the Second Temple period.
The Hebrew and Aramaic script was found in an underground cave housing an ancient ritual bath, uncovered under a Jerusalem construction site planned for a preschool.
The discovery, announced Wednesday by the Israel Antiquities Authority, was made two months ago during an archaeological inspection before the preschool’s construction could begin. Such inspections are routine practice in Jerusalem, given the thousands of years of history on which the holy city sits.
Researchers believe the ritual bath dates to the first century A.D., the Antiquities Authority said:
The walls of the miqwe [bath] were treated with ancient plaster and were adorned with numerous wall paintings and inscriptions, written in mud, soot and incising. The inscriptions are Aramaic and written in cursive Hebrew script, which was customary at the end of the Second Temple period. Among the symbols that are drawn are a boat, palm trees and various plant species, and possibly even a menorah.

PM Netanyahu speaks to PA chairman to wish him a happy Eid al-Fitr which marks the end of Ramadan.
By Elad Benari, Canada - First Publish: 7/17/2015 - Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu on Friday spoke with Palestinian Authority (PA) chairman Mahmoud Abbas and wished him a happy Eid al-Fitr, the Muslim holiday which marks the conclusion of the month of Ramadan. Netanyahu told the PA Chairman that the citizens of Israel want peace and added that Israel would continue to act toward regional stability. The conversation comes as the international community has pressured Israel and the PA in recent months to resume peace talks that have been frozen since last year.
France has been making efforts to bring Israel and the PA back to the negotiating table for peace talks that stalled in April last year. It has so far focused with Arab states on a possible resolution that would set negotiating parameters and establish a time period, possibly 18 months, to complete talks.
French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius visited the region recently, urging the resumption of Middle East peace talks but warning that continued Israeli construction in Judea and Samaria poses a threat to a final deal.
Meanwhile, it has been mostly Abbas who has continuously imposed preconditions on peace talks. He recently did so again, demanding that Israel stop construction in Judea and Samaria, release terrorist prisoners and hold talks for a period of no more than a year.

July 15, 2015 | AVI SSACHAROFF - Iranian President Hasan Rouhani’s passionate speech Tuesday hailing the nuclear deal with world powers underlines the scale of Iran’s achievement facing the West and the Middle East, and his own victory against more conservative forces at home. As Rouhani put it, “Today we stand at a fateful, historic crossroads for our state and for the revolution. It is the start of a new chapter.”
The agreement Iran struck with the P5+1 powers ensures Rouhani’s political survival; more significantly, it ensures the survival of the ayatollah regime. US President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry essentially determined the future of the Middle East, and established Iran’s hegemony in the region at the expense of Saudi Arabia and the Sunni world. Rouhani and Iran’s Supreme Leader Ali Khomeinei, who approved the accord, understood that they didn’t need to get the bomb in order to become the key regional power. It would be enough to become a nuclear threshold state with billions of additional dollars at its disposal and to achieve greater influence in the Middle East.
True, the agreement could have been far worse in terms of Iran’s direct nuclear weapons ambitions. It doesn’t stop Iran’s nuclear program, but it slows and delays it. If it honors the deal, Iran will not be able to manufacture a nuclear bomb for a decade, and it will remain under an arms embargo for the next five years.
Will the Iranians honor the deal? That’s a different question. International inspectors are supposed to supervise it, but it’s doubtful that they will succeed in doing so. After all, the Iranians have deceived the international community in the past.
Israel needs to be honest, too. The alternatives to an agreement were probably worse. The sanctions regime delayed the Iranians a little, but they were still just months from producing sufficient enriched uranium for a bomb. Even with sanctions in place, the Iranians did not stop enrichment; the new imposes a breakout time of one year from breakout capability.
Another alternative, an American or Israeli military strike, would have led to all-out regional war, including missile attacks on Israel from Hezbollah and others. The danger of war has not been averted, but it has been postponed.
The greater danger of this accord, however, is that far from being the least of all evils, it is the very epitome of evil when it comes to the future of the Middle East. It has determined the result of the Sunni-Shiite struggle; July 14, 2015 is likely to resonate as one of the darkest days in the history of this region, especially as regards the moderate Arab Sunni states.

July 15, 2015 | DAVID HOROVITZ - Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani on Tuesday unsurprisingly hailed the nuclear agreement struck with US-led world powers, and derided the “failed” efforts of the “warmongering Zionists.” His delight, Iran’s delight, is readily understandable.
The agreement legitimizes Iran’s nuclear program, allows it to retain core nuclear facilities, permits it to continue research in areas that will dramatically speed its breakout to the bomb should it choose to flout the deal, but also enables it to wait out those restrictions and proceed to become a nuclear threshold state with full international legitimacy. Here’s how.
1. Was the Iranian regime required, as a condition for this deal, to disclose the previous military dimensions of its nuclear program — to come clean on its violations — in order both to ensure effective inspections of all relevant facilities and to shatter the Iranian-dispelled myth that it has never breached its non-proliferation obligations? No. (This failure, arguably the original sin of the Western negotiating approach, is expertly detailed here by Emily B. Landau.)
Rather than exposing Iran’s violations, the new deal solemnly asserts that the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty which Iran has failed to honor “remains the cornerstone” of ongoing efforts to prevent the spread of nuclear weapons.
The deal provides for a mechanism “to address past and present issues of concern relating to its nuclear programme,” but Iran has managed to dodge such efforts for years, and the deal inspires little hope of change in that area, blithely anticipating “closing the issue” in the next few months.
2. Has the Iranian regime been required to halt all uranium enrichment, including thousands of centrifuges spinning at its main Natanz enrichment facility? No. The deal specifically legitimizes enrichment under certain eroding limitations.
3. Has the Iranian regime been required to shut down and dismantle its Arak heavy water reactor and plutonium production plant? No. It will convert, not dismantle the facility, under a highly complex process. Even if it honors this clause, its commitment to “no additional heavy water reactors or accumulation of heavy water in Iran” will expire after 15 years.
4. Has the Iranian regime been required to shut down and dismantle the underground uranium enrichment facility it built secretly at Fordow? No. (Convert, not dismantle.)
5. Has the Iranian regime been required to halt its ongoing missile development? No.

By Lea Speyer July 6, 2015 - “Rescue me from the mire, do not let me sink; deliver me from those who hate me, from the deep waters.” (Psalm 69:14)
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu accused world powers of caving in to the demands of the Islamic Republic as nuclear negotiations extend well past its June 30 deadline.
“It seems that the nuclear talks in Iran have yielded a collapse, not a breakthrough,” Netanyahu said at the start of the weekly cabinet meeting on Sunday. “The major powers’ concessions are growing.”
Among one of the more concerning concessions P5+1 negotiators are considering is the lifting of all sanctions in exchange for limited intervention of Iran’s nuclear program.
According to the prime minister, the current shape of the nuclear agreement would only “pave Iran’s path to the production of very many atomic bombs and it will also channel to Iran hundreds of billions of dollars that will serve its aggression and terrorism campaigns in our region and around the world.”
Comparing the Iran deal with past negotiations between the US and North Korea, which in no way deterred the dictatorial country from acquiring nuclear weapons, Netanyahu made clear that any agreement signed will only slightly extend the breakout time of Iran obtaining a nuclear bomb.


But she was plucked up in fury, she was cast down to the ground, and the east wind dried her fruit; her strong rods were broken and withered, the fire consumed them.” (Ezekiel 19:12)
Following a sharp increase in Arab violence in Jerusalem over the past month, Palestinian criminals adopted a new tactic: arson.
Over the weekend, three Molotov cocktails, believed to have been thrown by perpetrators from the Palestinian village of Qattana near the Jewish Kibbutz of Ma’aleh HaHamisha, caused a major forest fire that burned over 100 acres in the Jerusalem hills.
According to Fire and Rescue Services, the firebombs were thrown at the separation fence between the Palestinian village and the Kibbutz. Jerusalem Police have opened an investigation into this attack as well as two previous attacks, but so far no arrests have been made.
Fire fighters from both Beit Shemesh and Jerusalem were working around the clock on Thursday to put out a fire near the Kibbutz, again on Friday to quelch a different fire also started by arson near Kibbutz Tzora, and then again on Saturday to put out a third fire in the area, again by Ma’aleh Hahamisha.
“It’s very difficult, the firefighters are wiped out – not just those on duty are working, but many are also called in from home,” said Beit Shemesh Fire Chief Reuven Yitzhak.

By Ben Niran July 1, 2015 - “Comfort, comfort my people…” (Isaiah 40:1)
Malachi Rosenfeld, the 27-year old wounded in a drive-by terror shooting attack Monday night, died of his wounds on Tuesday evening at the Shaare Zedek Medical Center in Jerusalem.
Rosenfeld was shot in the torso as he was driving home with three friends to his hometown of Kokhav HaShahar, northeast of Ramallah.
The four men were returning from a basketball game near the Israeli community of Shvut Rachel when Palestinian gunmen opened fire on their car in what security sources believe to have been a premeditated ambush.
The attack was one in a series of violent events that have rocked Israel since the beginning of the month of Ramadan two weeks ago, including the murder of an Israeli civilian on June 19 and attacks on IDF soldiers and Israeli Border Police.
Rosenfeld, the son of popular Israeli clarinetist Eliezer Rosenfeld, was a graduate of the Machon Lev technological yeshiva in Jerusalem, and was studying at the Hebrew University.
The three men he was traveling with remain hospitalized; one is in light condition, while the other two are in moderate but stable condition.

By Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz July 7, 2015 , 11:30 am
And you shall discern from among the entire people men of accomplishment, God-fearing people, men of truth, people who despise money and you shall appoint them leaders of thousands, leaders of hundreds, leaders of fifties, and leaders of tens. so they shall judge the people at all times.” (Exodus 18:21)
A re-established and self declared Israeli Sanhedrin, the religious High Court composed of 71 sages, has declared that it is putting Pope Francis on trial unless he retracts his statement that the Jews have no right to the land of Israel or to Jerusalem.
In February 2013, the Vatican officially recognized the “State of Palestine” but more significantly, the Vatican signed a treaty in June with “Palestine” in which the Holy See switched its diplomatic relations from the Palestinian Liberation Organization to the “State of Palestine”. This treaty is the first legal document negotiated between the Holy See and the Palestinian state and as such, constitutes an official recognition.
The trial and judgment will be on September 20th, 2015. If Pope Francis chooses to ignore the summons, he will be judged in absentia.
The Sanhedrin sent a letter to Pope Francis in reaction to the Vatican’s recent support of the Palestinian Authority’s unilateral moves to declare themselves a nation, reported the Hebrew magazine Matzav Haruach on June 24.
The letter stated:
“Because the Vatican recognized the organization known as the Palestinian Authority as a nation, and has begun to refer to it as a nation in its documents. His honor has named the head of said authority as an ‘Angel of Peace’, as was explained by a spokesman for the Vatican, that his intention was to encourage Abu Mazen to advance towards peace. These actions, to our great dismay, are consistent with a long series of actions and stances that are as in the days of the Roman Catholic Religion, that swore to persecute Israel because we refused to accept their Messiah as the Messiah of Israel, and to renounce our faith. The recent announcements and actions of the Vatican are a rebuke to the Jewish Nation and to the Bible, which you use to interpret the prophecies, as if God has abandoned his original Nation of Israel. Reality has proven the opposite to be true.”
“We require from you an apology for your recognizing as a nation those who stole the land, those who are known as the Palestinian Authority, and we are informing the Vatican that the sole God given right to the land of Israel is to the Nation of Israel. If His Honor the Pope, and the Vatican, do not apologize within two weeks of receiving this letter, and if he does not change his ways, we shall judge these actions in the Court of Mount Zion, in a court of 71 Jewish elders of Zion, and enact the prophecy of ‘The liberators will rise up upon Mount Zion, to judge the Mountain of Esau and the kingdom shall be God’s’ (Obadiah 1:21). The court shall judge the Vatican in its presence or in absentia, and it is possible that the Vatican will be found guilty of anti-Semitism, as has been known to be done several times throughout history, and to place responsibility upon the Vatican for all of the outcomes of its actions.” Read more at

By Rivkah Lambert Adler June 12, 2015 - “And he came there to the cave, and he lodged there. And behold! The word of the Lord came to him. And He said to him: “What are you doing here, Elijah?” (1 Kings 19:9)
On the morning of Tuesday, June 9, Israeli mystic Rabbi Amram Vaknin, led a prayer service at the Cave of Elijah the Prophet in Haifa, Israel, along with approximately 30 Jewish men and 30 Jewish women, to pray for the welfare of the Jewish people. Gil Nachman, an aide to the Rabbi and an eyewitness, told Breaking Israel News that at approximately 11:30 AM, Rabbi Amram Vaknin suddenly fell to the ground, into the mud and water on the floor of the cave. In this world, Rabbi Vaknin was lying on the floor, but what happened in that cave, according to Nachman, “was above this world. The rabbi received a message for the Jewish people from Eliyahu haNavi (Elijah the Prophet) that there is a decree from Heaven that war will be starting in the south of Israel, will move to the north of Israel and will continue inside of Israel. Thousands of people will die, God-forbid.”
All Jewish people throughout the world are being urgently requested to unite, to pray together in groups, to fast and to give charity in order to avert this decree. Jews are being urged to direct the power of their prayer to beg God to have mercy on the Jewish nation.
Further, according to Nachman, people are being asked to polish their character traits, their fear of Heaven and to improve their interpersonal interactions, in order to change the decree in Heaven.
In an interview with Breaking Israel News, Nachman, speaking for Rabbi Vaknin, passionately appealed to the Jewish people to unite. “We have to be together! No matter what a person wears on the outside, we have to have the intention to love one another.” Yehudis Schamroth of Beit Shemesh, Israel began attending Rabbi Vaknin’s prayer gatherings six months ago. She told Breaking Israel News, “I first went to Rabbi Vaknin for brachot (blessings) for me and my family. He took a genuine interest in me in a grandfatherly way. He became especially animated in conversation when I asked him how I could help bring along the geula (the final redemption of the Jewish people).” Read more at

By JNS July 7, 2015 - Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu met with Greek Foreign Minister Nikos Kotzias in Jerusalem on Monday, promising to help Greece as its debt crisis worsens.
In a referendum on Sunday, a majority of Greek voters rejected the tough economic bailout conditions set by the European Central Bank (ECB)—giving a boost to Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras in his negotiations with the ECB, but stoking more fears that Greece’s banks could collapse, possibly resulting in a messy exit from the European Union.
Netanyahu commended Kotzias for following through on his visit to Israel despite the deepening crisis back at home.
“You come here at a critical time for Greece, and I appreciate the fact that you kept this visit despite some rather dramatic events in your country,” said Netanyahu.
While hailing Greece as one of the two foundations of Western democracy, along with Jerusalem, Netanyahu told Kotzias that Israel is “committed to help in any way we can to ensure your success.”
Netanyahu went on to discuss the recent discovery of five tons of bomb-making materials in an apartment in Cyprus, saying that Greece and Israel are allies in fighting Islamic terrorism.
“We need to cooperate to seek stability, security, peace and prosperity. And these are the subjects that I look forward to discussing with you and so many other things,” Netanyahu said.
Greece and Israel have strengthened ties in recent years as both countries seek to counteract Turkey’s rise in the region.
On Wednesday, Kotzias will meet with Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas in Ramallah.
The Rabbi told him that he should not leave Israel because the Messiah would be arriving very soon. The teacher responded that he had 700 students waiting for him in Lakewood. Rabbi Kanievsky told him that he must bring all of the students to Israel. Upon his arrival in Lakewood, the story spread quickly, creating quite an impression on the students who all revere Rabbi Kanievsky.
After a lifetime of immersing himself in classical Jewish texts, Rabbi Kanievsky’s study partner informed various media sites that the Rabbi is talking about the messiah “all the time.” Since last summer’s war in Gaza, the Rabbi has been spreading this message of imminent return. In one instance, Rabbi Kanievsky instructed a Jew from Argentina who asked for a blessing that he should “gather your family and come to Israel. Otherwise, there won’t be enough room for you on the airplanes.”
“Come home! Anti-Semitism is growing, terrorism is on the rise and the sickly ISIS activists carry out murders in the light of day. We are prepared to accept the Jews of France with open arms,” he said.
Last year, 7,000 French Jews made aliyah to Israel, making it the number one country of origin for new immigrants. The Jewish Agency and the Ministry for Aliyah and Immigrant Absorption are expecting more than 3,000 French Jews to immigrate to Israel this summer alone, many of them families with children who want to arrive and integrate before the beginning of the school year.
It should be noted that it is considered a positive trait to always be anticipating the Messiah. The Chofetz Chaim, Rabbi Yisrael Meir Kagan, a great Torah sage, is told to have said that any time he heard a loud noise, he would say, “Perhaps the Messiah has arrived?” Similar stories have also been told of the leading Moroccan Kabbalist, the Baba Sali, Rabbi Israel Abuhaseira.

By Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz July 3, 2015 - “I will bring you out from the peoples and gather you out of the countries where you are scattered, with a mighty hand and an outstretched arm, and with wrath poured out.” (Ezekiel 20:34 )
Rabbi Chaim Kanievsky, a leading authority in mainstream Ultra-Orthodox Judaism, has been giving clear and unequivocal messages recently that the coming of the Messiah is imminent. He is urging Jews to make Aliyah as soon as possible. Aliyah, the Hebrew verb for “going up”, refers to immigrating to Israel, which is seen as higher spiritual action that can help herald in the coming of the Messiah.
It was reported that the Rabbi Kanievsky was presented with a pamphlet, written by Rabbi Yitzchak Ben Tzvi from the city of Bnei Brak, dealing with the End of Days and many other related prophecies. Rabbi Kanievsky, who is a pillar of the Jewish community and known for his authoritative books on Torah law, read the pamphlet carefully. After a short consideration, he told those around him that the pamphlet needed to be distributed and that Jews living outside Israel should return to their ancestral land.
In yet another instance of Rabbi Kanievsky’s call for aliyah, author Rabbi Yekutiel Fisch revealed advice that was given to his cousin, a teacher at a prominent Lakewood Yeshiva who visited Israel recently and went to Rabbi Kanievsky to receive a blessing at the end of his visit. The Rabbi told him that he should not leave Israel because the Messiah would be arriving very soon. The teacher responded that he had 700 students waiting for him in Lakewood. Rabbi Kanievsky told him that he must bring all of the students to Israel. Upon his arrival in Lakewood, the story spread quickly, creating quite an impression on the students who all revere Rabbi Kanievsky.
After a lifetime of immersing himself in classical Jewish texts, Rabbi Kanievsky’s study partner informed various media sites that the Rabbi is talking about the messiah “all the time.” Since last summer’s war in Gaza, the Rabbi has been spreading this message of imminent return. In one instance, Rabbi Kanievsky instructed a Jew from Argentina who asked for a blessing that he should “gather your family and come to Israel. Otherwise, there won’t be enough room for you on the airplanes.”
When asked about the timing of the Messiah’s arrival, Rabbi Kanievsky answered, “At the end of the Sabbatical year.” Several people have asked the Rabbi to verify this and he has given the same answer each time. This year is the Sabbatical year and it will be ending on the 29th day of Elul, which, by the Gregorian calendar falls on Saturday, September 12, 2015.
In answer to Rabbi Kanievsky’s call, the Jews of France have begun to arrive in Israel in blessed droves. The impetus is certainly a reaction to increasing anti-Semitic and Islamic fueled violence across Europe.
After the horrific terror attack at a Kosher market in Paris six months ago, Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu urged French Jews to come home to Israel. His remarks drew criticism from some, however last week, in the wake of Ramadan violence in several countries including France, Zeev Elkin, the Israeli Minister of Immigration and Absorption, called on French Jews to make Aliyah, echoing his leader’s words.

By Rivkah Lambert Adler June 17, 2015 - Missionary groups claim that the note was written by Rabbi Yitzchak Kaduri, a man Singer calls the “greatest kabbalist [expert in Judaism’s mystical teachings] in the Land of Israel.” Rabbi Kaduri’s exact birth date is not known, but he was known to have been over 100 years old at the time of his death in 2006.
In the video, Singer makes two major claims. First, he explicitly calls the note a forgery. Second, he clearly states that the note does not say what the missionary groups claim it says.
What does the note actually say? Singer translated the Hebrew words as, “The nation will be raised up and it will become known that His word and His Torah stand.” He confirmed that the first letter of each of the Hebrew words in the cryptic message spells Yehoshua, the Hebrew name of Joshua, the disciple of Moses. It does not spell Yeshua, which is the name messianic groups use for Jesus.
Today's Featured Product: The Rose of Bethlehem
“Although others addressed this, no one made the most important point: The note does not say that Jesus is the messiah,” Singer told Breaking Israel News.
“I laughed off the assertion when I first encountered the claim made by missionary groups that [Rabbi] Kaduri left over a note proclaiming that Jesus was the messiah. The note didn’t say what they purported it to exclaim…I thought it was too ridiculous to gain any traction,” Singer explained. “I think that the mysterious ‘note from the grave’ feature sparked enormous curiosity. Given that the note said nothing that endorsed Christianity, I asked a number of people who studied under the great sage. I asked family members. Uniformly, no one knew anything about this note”.
Since 2007, the false claim about the misconstrued note has been excessively promoted in an overtly commercial manner approximately 40 times on the right-wing news website, World Net Daily.
In a 24-minute video released this week, Rabbi Tovia Singer, founder of a counter-missionary organization, completely discredits the claim made by Christian groups that a famous Israeli rabbi and spiritualist left a note, to be read a year after his passing, naming Jesus as the messiah.
Asked why he chose to address the question in 2015 when the claim was first made in 2007, Singer told Breaking Israel News, “I do a show where people can call in with any question about Tanach [the Jewish bible]. This popped up from a caller. I spontaneously addressed it on air. I’m glad I did because curiosity was growing about this topic.”

•Two rockets exploded in southern Israel after being fired from inside Sinai
•The missiles landed in an empty field so didn't cause injuries or damage
•But the attack proves how close the terror group are getting to Israel
•ISIS said the attack was revenge for ISIS supporting Egyptian troops
•Israel intervened when ISIS terrorists killed 50 Egyptian soldiers close to holiday resorts in northern Sinai earlier this week
July 3, 2015 | Updated: 4 July 2015 - Two rockets fired from Egypt's violence-plagued Sinai Peninsula exploded inside Israeli territory on Friday without causing casualties, a military spokesman said.
'Two rockets fired from Sinai struck southern Israel, but without causing casualties or material damage,' the spokesman said, without elaborating. The Islamic State's affiliate in Egypt, 'Sinai Province', confirmed it had fired three Grad rockets at Israel, adding that it was in retaliation for Israel supporting Egypt's armed forces on Wednesday when the jihadis attacked army checkpoints in northern Sinai.
The news comes as security was tightened up at Egypt's holiday resorts after ISIS killed 50 soldiers in an attack on military bases - just 250 miles from where some 9.5 million tourists go every year

(The 2,000-year-old lion in the garden of Palmyra Archeological Museum, said destroyed by Islamic State militants on July 2, 2015 (Wikipedia)) Jerusalem holy place at No. 1 on ‘Last chance to see’ list. Syrian city, whose iconic 2,000-year-old lion was smashed last week, misses out By Times of Israel staff and JTA July 6, 2015, 1:48 am 37
NN prompted criticism by placing the Dome of the Rock in Jerusalem’s Old City at the top of a list it headlined “Last chance to see: 25 magnificent structures on the verge of extinction.”
The article said the holy site headed the list because “no other site has spent more time on UNESCO’s List of World Heritage in Danger” than the Old City.
“A holy city for three different religions, it attracts millions of tourist with over 200 monuments, including the majestic Dome of the Rock. But political tension has hardened relations between Israel and UNESCO, preventing any preservation plans from moving forward,” CNN wrote in its feature.
The CNN list did not cite a specific or immediate threat to the Old City in general or the 6th century Dome of the Rock in particular.
UNESCO’s list of sites in danger indeed notes that the “Old City of Jerusalem and its Walls” was proposed for inclusion by Jordan in 1982, the earliest date of any of the 48 sites on the current UNESCO list. (This was 15 years after Israel captured the Old City from Jordan in the 1967 war and 12 years before Israel and Jordan signed a peace treaty.)
The site that has the spent the second-longest period on the UNESCO “Danger” roster, Peru’s Chan Chan Archaeological Zone (on the list since 1986), does not appear in the CNN top 25 rankings.

Published on Jun 1, 2015 - FreedomFighter2127 - There has been a lot of talk about things that are going to happen in September, but something that has been almost totally overlooked is the fact that the UN Security Council is likely to be voting on a UN resolution which will establish a Palestinian state at that time. Right now, France is working on a proposed resolution which would give formal UN Security Council recognition to the Palestinians, would declare that a divided Jerusalem is the capital of both Israel and a Palestinian state, and would set the 1967 borders as the baseline for future negotiations which would establish the final borders between the two nations. It is being reported that France will submit this resolution for a vote after the 70th session of the UN General Assembly begins on the 15th of September. At this moment, 136 nations have already recognized a Palestinian state, but the United States has always blocked recognition by the UN Security Council. This time may be different though, because there are quite a few indications that Barack Obama actually plans to back the French resolution in September. If that happens, and the UN Security Council approves this resolution, it is going to have enormous implications for all of us.

JERUSALEM, Israel -- While the Palestinian Authority is talking peace, they're also teaching the next generation to hate their Israeli neighbors. In an interview this week with the Washington Post, P.A. Prime Minister Rami Hamdallah said they’re hoping to resume negotiations within a “new framework.”
“We need outside intervention from the U.N., from the superpowers, from the United States,” said Hamdallah. “Once there is a resolution, whether the U.N. asking for Israeli withdrawal [to 1948 armistice lines] and for the establishment of the [Palestinian] state, this has to be guaranteed by the superpowers.”
Yet while seeking international backing for their cause, they simultaneously indoctrinate their children on official Palestinian television.
On a typical children’s program aired earlier this spring, the Jerusalem Post reported a little girl recited a poem that refers to “the sons of Zion…who murdered Allah’s pious prophets” as “barbaric monkeys” and “the most evil of creations” and Jerusalem as “the eternal capital of Palestine.”
“Jerusalem opposes your throngs,” she says full face to the camera. “Jerusalem vomits from within it your impurity.”
“Because Jerusalem, you impure ones, is pious, immaculate. And Jerusalem, you who are filth, is clean and pure,” to which the lovely young hostess exclaims, “Bravo!”
“Jerusalem is the eternal capital of Palestine. We will never forget it,” she instructs her young audience.” Continued:
Netanyahu: 'Nuclear Iran 1,000 Times Worse Than ISIS'

by Burak Bekdil - May 15, 2015

ERDOGAN IS NOT HAPPY WITH THE POWERS THE TURKISH CONSTITUTION GRANTS HIM HE WANTS MORE Once he has given orders, there should not be judicial, constitutional or parliamentary checks and balances. He will become the first ballot-box Sultan of the Turkish Empire of his dreams.
367 parliamentary votes are required to pass a constitutional amendment in parliament without a referendum, and at least 330 to make Erdogan an elected Sultan. But if he wins, he will be the president of less than half of the Turks, with the other half hating him more than ever.
It is election time in Turkey. On June 7, the Turks will go to the ballot box to elect a government and a prime minister who will rule the country for four years.
In reality, they will go to the ballot box to decide whether they want an elected Sultan or not.
Turkey's President, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, wants more than just to win a parliamentary majority for his Justice and Development Party (AKP). He wants a two-thirds majority, so that the constitution can be amended to introduce an executive presidential system and the Sultan can once again officially rule.
In 2013, Burhan Kuzu, the AKP's chairman of the parliament's Constitution Commission, compared the U.S. presidency to the broad powers of Turkey's prime minister (who at the time was Erdogan), saying, "Obama is a poor man, the Prime Minister is powerful."
More recently, during a press briefing after a state visit to Kazakhstan, Erdogan told a group of Turkish journalists on April 18: "Look now. Obama cannot get decisions done."
It was just another line with which he expressed his obsession to transform Turkey's parliamentary democracy into an executive presidential system "a la Turca," in which an elected man runs a one-man show with no checks and balances.
The powers the Turkish president has do not satisfy Erdogan. He is the strongman, but he wants more. He wants almost unlimited powers: He wants to be the democratically elected Sultan of a supposed emerging Turkish empire.
Despite constitutional articles that require the president to be non-partisan in domestic politics, Erdogan has been running from one public rally to another bashing opposition parties and praising the ruling AKP's "success stories" since the party came to power over 12 years ago.
