"THE NEXT THANKSGIVUKKAH WILL BE IN 70,000 YEARS" BY VT.DIGGER.ORG.

NEXT THANKSGIVUKKAH IN 70,000 YEARS

Editor’s note: This article is by Amanda Kuhnert, a contributor to the Stowe Reporter, in which it was first published Nov. 27, 2013.
While many Americans make final preparations for their Thanksgiving feast tomorrow, many Jewish-Americans are also getting ready for the first day of Hanukkah. This unusual overlap of the two holidays is known as “Thanksgivukkah.”
Dana Gitell, a marketing specialist in Massachusetts, coined the name on a morning drive to work in November 2012. Combining the names of Thanksgiving and Hanukkah, this creative portmanteau captures a rare convergence of the two holidays that won’t happen again for another 70,000 years, some experts say.

Thanksgivukkah is a “super holiday” created by the overlap of Thanksgiving Day with the first full day of the eight-day Hanukkah, which is set by the Jewish calendar. The two holidays last overlapped in 1888, according to an article in the Boston Globe. But tomorrow will be the first Thanksgivukkah in recent history, and the last one until the year 79,811, said Jewish physicist and calendar expert Jonathan Mizrahi.
In an interview with ThanksgivukkahBoston.com, Mizrahi explained that “the Jewish calendar is mathematical in nature; it’s not determined by a person. It is designed so that the months line up with the lunar cycle, while the years stay synced with the solar cycle.”
“The calendar is drifting forward with respect to the solar cycle at a rate of four days every 1,000 years,” he said. “Right now, the earliest that the first day of Hanukkah can fall is Nov. 28. Coincidentally, this is also the latest that Thanksgiving can fall.”
Other mathematicians argue that the phenomenon will never happen again. Regardless, everyone agrees on one thing: Thanksgivukkah is an extremely rare and significant event in our lifetimes.
Some people are going all out for Thanksgivukkah with Menurkeys — turkey-shaped menorahs, and modified traditional Thanksgiving dishes, like turkey brined in Manischewitz and stuffed with Challah bread, pumpkin kugel, and pecan pie rugelach. Others are less enthusiastic, turned off by “all the commercial hype.” And you can’t argue with that.
Thanksgivukkah is big business. People are selling T-shirts, table d├ęcor, dreidels, jewelry and more in honor of the super holiday.
But regardless of how people choose to celebrate Thanksgivukkah, this unique historical event offers Jewish Americans an opportunity for introspection and reflection, said David Fainsilber, religious leader at the Jewish Community of Greater Stowe.
“The thinker behind Reconstructionist Judaism, Mordechai Kaplan, was the first to introduce a Thanksgiving service into his siddur/prayer book,” Fainsilber said. “One of his main contributions to Jewish thought is the concept that, as Jews in America, we live in two civilizations: American and Jewish. Today, as American Jews (or Jewish Americans) this concept is now taken for granted in many ways.
“Yet still, with Thanksgiving and Hanukkah falling on the same day, this super holiday makes one stop and think: What American values inform my Judaism? What Jewish values inform my Americanism? Where do the two meet and where do they depart? These types of questions can relate to people of other faiths or no faith as they consider which overlapping communities they live in and what values of these ‘civilizations’ intersect and what values diverge.”
Some Jewish Americans have decided to embrace Thanksgivukkah as an opportunity to make the traditional Thanksgiving values of “giving” and “gratitude” a more significant part of the celebration of Hanukkah. Ideas that have been floating around the Internet include: designating one night during Hanukkah to give a gift to someone in need, choosing a local nonprofit or food drive to support, or simply dedicating time every day for giving thanks.
Whether or not Jewish-Americans decide to embrace the Thanksgivukkah theme or stick with their traditional Thanksgiving and Hanukkah plans, the convergence of these two significant holidays likely will be experienced at some level in every Jewish-American home this year.
“Hanukkah as the holiday of ‘miracles’ can help us reframe our gathering together with family and friends at this secular season as an incredible miracle that requires much gratitude,” Fainsilber said. “Thank God for this miracle of life and family, gathering, friends and gratitude.”

THE U.N. DECLARES 2014 THE YEAR OF "SOLIDARITY" WITH THE PALESTINIANS" STATES THE "JEWISH JOURNAL"

U.N. declares 2014 year of ‘solidarity’ with the Palestinians


The United Nations General Assembly has declared 2014 the “International 
Year of Solidarity with the Palestinian People.”
The draft resolution was adopted Tuesday by a vote of 110-7, 
with 56 member states abstaining.
The resolution also welcomed the resumption of U.S.-brokered Israeli-Palestinian
peace negotiations and called on the Palestinians and Israel to take all 
necessary steps to ensure the success of the current round of peace talks.  
It also called for an end to Israeli settlement activity in the West Bank, 
including eastern Jerusalem.
Another resolution approved on Tuesday called on Israel to hand the Golan 
Heights over to Syria, despite the fact that the country is in the midst of a civil
war and that more than 100,000 of its own citizens have reportedly been 
murdered by the military.

GOOD ARTICLE HERE BY THE INSPIRATIONAL MELANIE PHILLIPS ON "WORLD SAVED? HARDLY. MORE A FINAL COUNTDOWN TO NUCLEAR BLACKMAIL AND WAR"!!

World saved? Hardly. More a final countdown to nuclear blackmail and war(by Melanie Phillips - November 26th, 2013)

Negotiations in Geneva about Iran's nuclear capabilities, November 2013One by one, the commentators have today fallen like dominoes. Presented with the transparent victory by Iran over the rest of the world at Geneva, they have eagerly swallowed the line they have been fed that this is a ‘historic’ step towards peace with Iran whose nuclear wings have now been clipped.

Journalists who would normally ask themselves ‘why is this lying bastard lying to me?’ if a western politician merely said ‘hello, nice day isn’t it’ (apart, of course, from The One) have suspended all independent powers of observation and thought over this risible farce of a deal. 

Viewing it through the prism of ‘after-Iraq-don’t-give me-any-more-lies-about-Islamic-terror/anything-that-sounds-like-compromise-and-lets-us-put-our-heads-back-in-the-sand-must-be-good/war-with-Iran-is-sooo-much-more-terrifying-than-a-nuclear-Iran/new-Iranian-President-Rouhani-sounds-charming-and-moderate-so-phew!-we-can-believe-anything-that-he-says/anything-Benjamin-Netanyahu-is-against-I’m-for’, the chattering classes have apparently decided that yup, this really is peace in our time and any comparison with you-know-what in 1938 is well, just hysterical, and anyway we’ve had it up to here with Israel and they can just shut up.

Earlier today, I had a discussion with one such domino, Lord Phillips of Sudbury, on BBC Radio’s Jeremy Vine show.

But for your own assistance when facing someone who thinks this deal has saved the world rather than provide the final countdown to genocidal nuclear blackmail and war, here is my cut-out-and-keep guide to why the Geneva deal all but guarantees that the principal source of terrorism in the world today will now develop nuclear weapons for its monstrous purposes.

1) The deal is not designed to stop the Iranian bomb. It is said rather to be an interim agreement designed to boost confidence. President Obama and Secretary of State Kerry promise a subsequent permanent agreement which will disarm Iran of its nuclear and military capabilities. So sanctions are currently being lifted in exchange for… what exactly? Nothing of any significance whatever.

2) The Americans admit that, even in the best-case scenario, the deal will lengthen the Iranian bomb-making process by only a few months. And then what?

3) However much Kerry tries to deny it, the deal inescapably accepts that Iran will enrich uranium in a ‘mutually defined enrichment programme’.

4) It thus unilaterally chucks onto the scrap-heap the UN Security Council binding resolutions making any easing of sanctions dependent upon Iran ceasing uranium enrichment altogether.

5) The vaunted slowdown, by reducing uranium enrichment from 20 per cent to five per cent, can be easily reversed.

6) The deal does not destroy one single centrifuge. Some 10,000 of them will continue to spin and enrich the uranium needed for the bomb. According to some experts, Iran already possesses enough enriched uranium to make 4-5 Hiroshima-sized nuclear bombs.

7) The slowdown still gives Iran yet more of the gift Obama has already so lavishly bestowed upon it over the past five years – the time it needs to arrive at nuclear weapons breakout capability.

8) The deal enables Iran to remain on the ‘nuclear threshold’, enabling it to acquire the material it needs for a nuclear weapon within six to eight weeks. To reduce that break-out threat, Iran’s nuclear programme must instead be heavily put back.

9) The last-minute, French-imposed pause in the assembly of the heavy water reactor at Arak (and the US was originally willing to do a deal without any change at all at Arak) will still not prevent Iran being able to use Arak to produce a plutonium-based nuclear weapon.

10) Considering the spotty track record of the IAEA inspectors and the sophisticated guile of the Iranians, not to mention the likely existence of more secret nuclear sites than have been detected so far, the prospects of IAEA inspections keeping Iran honest must be considered slim indeed.

11) The absence of any requirement to divulge its programme to manufacture explosive devices and warheads means that Iran can complete the development of its nuclear weapon.

12) The deal starts to weaken the sanctions regime unconditional upon Iran delivering anything at all. It thus throws away the one piece of leverage the west finally developed against the regime and removes the incentive for Iran to keep to the terms of the deal. For if Iran could get something for nothing from the US, UK and EU this time, it can be confident that Obama, Ashton and Cameron are so desperate for any deal that it will be able to do so again and again.

13) Obama has now conclusively demonstrated that he will never attack Iran. His real target in doing this patently absurd deal was not Iran at all, but Israel. This is because Obama clearly regards the biggest threat around to be not the ‘unthinkable’ nuclear-arming of war-on-west-waging, genocidal Iran but an attack on Iran by its putative victims, to prevent that genocide and avert nuclear blackmail and worse against the US and the rest of the west. Iran now knows it can proceed with impunity to the bomb because Obama’s US has become a paper tiger.

14) Rouhani is not moderate at all, but a supremely wily negotiator who understands all too well the death-wish of the appeasement-driven west. He has boasted in the past of duping it in order to buy time for Iran to continue to build the bomb. In time, he will similarly boast of this deal, too.

15) Rouhani is in any event not the main guy. The west was negotiating with a mere puppet. The only person who matters in Iran is the Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Khamenei.

10) Khamenei’s regime remains committed to wiping Israel ‘off the page of history’ because of the regime’s deranged, psychopathic hatred of Jews whom it regards as not human at all but, in Khamenei’s recent words, like ‘rabid dogs’.

11) The fact that the US, UK and EU casually dismissed such chilling words suggests that they are similarly indifferent to what history tells us is the terrible fate that follows from such words, unless those who utter them are stopped.

But wait.

After the deal was signed, the White House said that

‘Israel has ‘good reason to be skeptical about Iran’s intentions…’

Think about that for a moment. Being ‘sceptical about Iran’s intentions’ means you think it is lying about those intentions. If the White House thinks Israel has good reason to believe Iran is lying, it follows that the White House must also think Iran is lying. If the White House thinks Iran is lying, how could it have done this ‘confidence building’ deal and part-lifted the sanctions regime imposed upon this lying, west-attacking, Jew-hating regime?

The closing words of George Orwell’s Animal Farm come irresistibly to mind:

‘The creatures outside looked from pig to man, and from man to pig, and from pig to man again; but already it was impossible to say which was which’.

ALMOST 18,000 PEOPLE FLEE SINABUNG VOLCANO ERUPTION IN INDONESIA!!

Sinabung volcano Indonesia: Almost 18,000 flee eruption on Sumatra

Updated Tue 26 Nov 2013, 9:55am AEDT
Nearly 18,000 people have had to flee a volcano eruption on the Indonesian island of Sumatra, as debris rained down on houses.
Plumes of ash rose two kilometres into the sky and hot rocks plummeted to the ground, peppering holes in the roofs of local homes.
The Sinabung volcano in north Sumatra has erupted multiple times over the past 24 hours and local authorities have been working to evacuate more than 5,000 families to community centres outside the danger zone.
Some villagers have risked their lives by staying in the evacuation area to tend to livestock and guard their homes.
Sutopo Purwo Negroho from the National Disaster Mitigation Centre says among the refugees there are 2,500 children under five years of age and more then 1,700 elderly residents.
"The number of displaced increased a lot because we lifted the alert level," he said.
The volcano is still considered to be highly active but authorities only have enough supplies for three more days.
Sinabung is one of dozens of active volcanoes in Indonesia, which straddles major tectonic fault lines known as the Ring of Fire.
In August, five people were killed and hundreds evacuated when a volcano on a tiny island in East Nusa Tenggara province erupted.
Mount Merapi in central Java, the country's most active volcano, killed more than 350 people in a series of violent eruptions in 2010 and showed signs of low activity last week.

COULD THE BIBLE BE TRUE AFTER ALL?? THIRTEEN NEPHILIM SKULLS FOUND IN MEXICO TO BACK UP THE VERACITY OF THE SCRIPTURES!!

13 Nephilim Skulls Found In Mexico?
Share this article
     

So much of what we have been taught about ancient history is simply not true. According to Mexico’s National Institute of Anthropology and History, a team of archaeologists working close to the Mexican village of Onavas has made an amazing discovery.

They reportedly found 13 ancient human specimens that had grossly elongated skulls. You can find original photographs of this discovery right here, but the descriptions of the photos are in Spanish.

The Mexican scientists are telling us that these skulls are approximately 1,000 years old, and that no skulls of this nature have ever been found in this region of Mexico before. So exactly what is going on here?

Are these elongated skulls simply the product of an ancient technique known as “cradle-boarding”, or is there another explanation? Could these actually be Nephilim skulls that prove that an ancient race of hybrids once roamed the planet? You might want to hold on to your hat – because the truth might shock you.

This group of elongated skulls in Mexico made headlines all over the globe when it was initially discovered. A lot of people were really freaked out because a number of these skulls definitely do not look human at first glance. A short video report about this discovery in Spanish is posted below…

So what would cause a skull to become elongated like that? Well, without a doubt “cradle-boarding” (also known as cranial deformation, head flattening, or head binding) can produce an elongated skull in a young child. And “cradle-boarding” is a decent explanation for most of the elongated skull specimens that we have found around the globe.

However, it does not explain all of them. In fact, some elongated skull specimens have been found that could not have been produced by cradle-boarding. Paranormal researcher L.A. Marzulli explained why this is the case during an appearance on Coast to Coast AM earlier this year…

In Paracas, on the coast of Peru, he and Richard Shaw, the director of the ‘Watcher’ series, visited a necropolis, a huge desert cemetery, and a museum that had some forty skulls originally from the graveyard.

While some of the elongated heads were shaped by “cradle-boarding,” a type of skull binding that led to cranial deformation, others appear to be genuinely anomalous, having just one parietal plate, he detailed.

Some of the skulls also have a large pronounced ridge, and a heart-shaped dome in the rear that can’t be achieved through cradle-boarding, he continued. “I believe we are looking at some sort of genetic manipulation…that are the remains of the Nephilim,” from around 3,000 to 3,500 years ago, he added.

Yes, without a doubt many elongated skull specimens were caused by cradle-boarding children when they were young.

But where did those ancient tribes get that idea?

Were they trying to emulate something that they had seen before?

Were they trying to emulate a race of people that had been ruling over them at some point?

Brien Foerster is another expert that has looked into this extensively. According to him, there is no possible way that some of the specimens in Peru could have been created through the process of deliberate cranial deformation. The following is a short excerpt from a recent article by April Holloway…

Brien Foerster, author and expert on elongated skulls, has presented some of the most spectacular research on the subject. He has found that while most skulls show clear signs of deliberate cranial deformation, there are a percentage of skulls, namely those found in Paracus, Peru, which are anatomically different and which cannot be explained by practices of head flattening.

These skulls, he said, have a cranial volume that is 25% larger than conventional human skulls (cranial deformation does not increase volume), and which weigh 60% more. Brien Foerster outlines further differences: “they contain two small holes in the back of the skull, perpendicular to the cranial suture present in the parietal plate of the skull.

Every normal human skull is composed of 3 major bone plates; the frontal plate, which ends at the upper part of the forehead, and the 2 parietal plates which lie behind this, intersecting the frontal plate making a “T” shape.

The holes are thought by Lloyd to be natural; every human jaw has a small hole on either side which is for nerves and blood vessels to exit and feed the tissue there; these 2 holes at the back of the skull may perform the same function for the elongated skull. The other factor is that there is only one parietal plate, where there should be two.”

But most scientists ignore this information because it does not fit in with their accepted version of ancient history.

Fortunately, there are some areas of science that are starting to catch up with the truth a little bit. For example, the following is from a recent Huffington Post article entitled “Ancient Humans Had Sex With Mystery Species, New DNA Study Shows“…

The ancient genomes, one from a Neanderthal and one from a different archaic human group, the Denisovans, were presented on 18 November at a meeting at the Royal Society in London. They suggest that interbreeding went on between the members of several ancient human-like groups living in Europe and Asia more than 30,000 years ago, including an as-yet unknown human ancestor from Asia.

“What it begins to suggest is that we’re looking at a ‘Lord of the Rings’-type world — that there were many hominid populations,” says Mark Thomas, an evolutionary geneticist at University College London who was at the meeting but was not involved in the work.

Yes, the ancient world was most definitely more of a “Lord of the Rings-type world” than most people would ever dare to imagine.

Now of course the scientists in that article are still really grasping for straws to explain what the data is telling them. The theories that they present to the media as “facts” are really just theories that they have pulled out of their own imaginations.

But what these scientists are starting to realize is that some really strange things happened to the human genome in the ancient world, and that is what the ancient texts have been telling us all along.

Many ancient texts (including the Bible) tell us that long ago a group of fallen angels mated with human women and produced a race of hybrid creatures known as the Nephilim.

In addition to the incredible testimony contained in these ancient texts, we also have physical evidence of this race of creatures still with us today. In a previous article entitled “Has An Ancient Giant Handprint Been Found In A Cave In Nevada?“, I discussed some examples of this evidence including a giant footprint, a photo of a giant finger and a giant handprint that has been preserved in a cave in Nevada.

But the reality of the matter is that a group of giants could actually be protesting in front of the White House right now and a lot of people still would not believe this stuff.

Why?

Because it simply does not fit in with what they have been taught all of their lives. According to the textbooks, none of this evidence is supposed to exist. So most people will continue to ignore what is right in front of their eyes.

AMERICA'S FALSE PROSPERITY WILL SOON DISAPPEAR IF CHINA CARRIES OUT ITS THREAT TO STOP STOCK PILING US DOLLARS!!!

China Announces That It Is Going To Stop Stockpiling U.S. Dollars
     

China just dropped an absolute bombshell, but it was almost entirely ignored by the mainstream media in the United States. The central bank of China has decided that it is "no longer in China’s favor to accumulate foreign-exchange reserves". During the third quarter of 2013, China's foreign-exchange reserves were valued at approximately $3.66 trillion.

And of course the biggest chunk of that was made up of U.S. dollars. For years, China has been accumulating dollars and working hard to keep the value of the dollar up and the value of the yuan down.

One of the goals has been to make Chinese products less expensive in the international marketplace. But now China has announced that the time has come for it to stop stockpiling U.S. dollars.

And if that does indeed turn out to be the case, than many U.S. analysts are suggesting that China could also soon stop buying any more U.S. debt. Needless to say, all of this would be very bad for the United States.

For years, China has been systematically propping up the value of the U.S. dollar and keeping the value of the yuan artificially low. This has resulted in a massive flood of super cheap products from across the Pacific that U.S. consumers have been eagerly gobbling up.

For example, have you ever gone into a dollar store and wondered how anyone could possibly make a profit by making those products and selling them for just one dollar?

Well, the truth is that when you flip those products over you will find that almost all of them have been made outside of the United States. In fact, the words "made in China" are probably the most common words in your entire household if you are anything like the typical American.

Thanks to the massively unbalanced trade that we have had with China, tens of thousands of our businesses, millions of our jobs and trillions of our dollars have left this country and gone over to China.

And now China has apparently decided that there is not much gutting of our economy left to do and that it is time to let the dollar collapse. As I mentioned above, China has announced that it is going to stop stockpiling foreign-exchange reserves...

The People’s Bank of China said the country does not benefit any more from increases in its foreign-currency holdings, adding to signs policy makers will rein in dollar purchases that limit the yuan’s appreciation.

“It’s no longer in China’s favor to accumulate foreign-exchange reserves,” Yi Gang, a deputy governor at the central bank, said in a speech organized by China Economists 50 Forum at Tsinghua University yesterday.

The monetary authority will “basically” end normal intervention in the currency market and broaden the yuan’s daily trading range, Governor Zhou Xiaochuan wrote in an article in a guidebook explaining reforms outlined last week following a Communist Party meeting. Neither Yi nor Zhou gave a timeframe for any changes.

It isn't going to happen overnight, but the value of the U.S. dollar is going to start to go down, and all of that cheap stuff that you are used to buying at Wal-Mart and the dollar store is going to become a lot more expensive.

But of even more importance is what this latest move by China could mean for U.S. government debt. As most Americans have heard, we are heavily dependent on foreign nations such as China lending us money. Right now, China owns nearly 1.3 trillion dollars of our debt. Unfortunately, as CNBC is noting, if China is going to quit stockpiling our dollars than it is likely that they will stop stockpiling our debt as well...

Analysts see this as the PBoC hinting that it will let its currency fluctuate, without intervention, thus negating the need for holding large reserves of the dollar. And if the dollar is no longer needed, then it could look to curb its purchases of dollar-denominated assets like U.S. Treasurys.

"If they are looking to reduce these purchases going forward then, yes, you'd have to look at who the marginal buyer would be," Richard McGuire, a senior rate strategist at Rabobank told CNBC in an interview.

"Together, with the Federal Reserve tapering its bond purchases, it has the potential to add to the bearish long-term outlook on U.S. Treasurys."

So who is going to buy all of our debt?

That is a very good question.

If the Federal Reserve starts tapering bond purchases and China quits buying our debt, who is going to fill the void?

If there is significantly less demand for government bonds, that will cause interest rates to rise dramatically. And if interest rates rise dramatically from where they are now, that will set off the kind of nightmare scenario that I keep talking about.

In a previous article entitled "How China Can Cause The Death Of The Dollar And The Entire U.S. Financial System", I described how China could single-handedly cause immense devastation to the U.S. economy.

China accounts for more global trade that anyone else does, and they also own more of our debt than any other nation does. If China starts dumping our dollars and our debt, much of the rest of the planet would likely follow suit and we would be in for a world of hurt.

And just this week there was another major announcement which indicates that China is getting ready to make a major move against the U.S. dollar. According to Reuters, crude oil futures may soon be priced in yuan on the Shanghai Futures Exchange...

The Shanghai Futures Exchange (SHFE) may price its crude oil futures contract in yuan and use medium sour crude as its benchmark, its chairman said on Thursday, adding that the bourse is speeding up preparatory work to secure regulatory approvals.

China, which overtook the United States as the world's top oil importer in September, hopes the contract will become a benchmark in Asia and has said it would allow foreign investors to trade in the contract without setting up a local subsidiary.

If that actually happens, that will be absolutely huge.

China is the number one importer of oil in the world, and it was only a matter of time before they started to openly challenge the petrodollar.

But even I didn't think that we would see anything like this so quickly.

The world is changing, and most Americans have absolutely no idea what this is going to mean for them. As demand for the U.S. dollar and U.S. debt goes down, the things that we buy at the store will cost a lot more, our standard of living will go down and it will become a lot more expensive for everyone (including the U.S. government) to borrow money.

Unfortunately, there isn't much that can be done about any of this at this point. When it comes to economics, China has been playing chess while the United States has been playing checkers. And now decades of very, very foolish decisions are starting to catch up with us.

The false prosperity that most Americans are enjoying today will soon start disappearing, and most of them will have no idea why it is happening.

"THE DEMISE OF PAX AMERICANA" BY ISRAEL NEWS DIGEST WEEKLY.






THE DEMISE OF PAX AMERICANA!

In a recent article, Carolyn Glick [Israeli journalist, managing editor of the Jerusalem Post] wrote, “What happened in Geneva last week was the most significant international event since the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991. The collapse of the Soviet Union signaled the rise of the United States as the sole global superpower. The developments in the six-party nuclear talks with Iran in Geneva last week signaled the end of American world leadership.”
Glick noted that global leadership is based on two things – power and credibility. The United States remains the most powerful actor in the world, she says. But last week, American credibility was shattered. How so? “Secretary of State John Kerry spent the first part of last week lying to Israeli and Gulf Arab leaders and threatening the Israeli people. He lied to Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and the Saudis about the content of the deal US and European negotiators had achieved with the Iranians.”
“Kerry told them that in exchange for Iran temporarily freezing its nuclear weapons development program, the US and its allies would free up [no less] than $5 billion in Iranian funds seized and frozen in foreign banks.”
At the same time, Kerry in effect threatened the Israeli people with terrorism and murder – and in so doing actually opened the door to both – if Israel fails to accept his demands for territorial surrender to terrorists who reject Israel’s right to exist. Kerry’s threats included some interesting innuendo. He claimed that Israelis are too wealthy to understand their own interests. “If you don’t wise up and do what I say,” he warned, the Europeans will take away your money while the Palestinians kill you. Oh, and aside from that, your presence in the historic heartland of Jewish civilization from Jerusalem to Elon Moreh is illegitimate.

Glick notes that “it is hard to separate the rise in terrorist activity since Kerry’s remarks last week from the remarks themselves.” It could be said that, indirectly, Kerry may have started the third Intifada. On November 8, in the fourth attack in 24 hours, a mother and her children were injured when their car was set ablaze by fire bombs near Efrat. In addition, a young Israeli soldier was attacked while sleeping on a bus, and killed by a 16-year old West Bank Arab. Incidentally, the family of the murderer praised their son, hailing him as a hero. This is an example of the twisted thinking among many Palestinians today.
There was no immediate comment from Israel, but Israeli ministers have accused Erdogan of adopting an anti-Israeli stance in recent years to bolster his country’s standing in the Muslim world. Relations between Turkey and Israel--once strong--hit “the rocks” in 2010 after Israeli commandos killed nine Turkish activists trying to break Israel’s naval blockade of Gaza. Glick notes, “What greater carte blanche for murder could the Palestinians have received than the legitimization of their crimes by the chief diplomat of Israel’s closest ally? Certainly, Kerry’s negotiating partner Catherine Ashton couldn’t have received a clearer signal to ratchet up her economic boycott of Jewish Israeli businesses than Kerry’s blackmail message, given just two days before the 75th anniversary of Kristallnacht.”

Kerry’s threats were so “obscene and unprecedented,” Glick says, that Israeli officials broke with tradition and disagreed with him openly and directly while he was still in the country. Normally supportive leftist commentators have begun reporting Kerry’s history of anti-Israel advocacy, including his 2009 letter of support for pro-Hamas activists organizing flotillas to Gaza in breach of international and American law.

May God protect Israel from people like Kerry, and may He protect all those who love Israel from the far-reaching effects of such anti-Israel “diplomacy.” Presumably neither Kerry nor his boss have much credibility in the world, because the greatest nation in history has, as noted above, lost all moral influence.

“The Lord has heard my supplication; the Lord accepts my prayer. All my enemies shall be ashamed and struck with terror; they shall turn back, and in a moment be put to shame” (Psalm 6:10).

DEBKA ON "SEVEN LOOPHOLES FAVOURING A NUCLEAR IRAN IN DEAL SIGNED BY THE WORLD POWERS"!

Seven loopholes favouring a nuclear Iran in deal signed by the world powers.
DEBKAfile Exclusive Analysis November 24, 2013, 4:51 PM (IDT)
IRAN HAS HUNDREDS OF THESE WMD’s.

The first preliminary nuclear deal the six world powers (US, Russia, China, UK, France and German) signed with Iran before dawn Sunday, Nov. 24, at the end of a four-day marathon, failed to address the most questionable aspects of Iran’s nuclear program, i.e. its clandestine military dimensions. The accord confined itself to aspects of uranium enrichment and stockpiles. UN inspections were expanded – but not applied, for instance, to Iran’s concealed nuclear sites - or even the Parchin military base where Iran is suspected of having tested nuclear-related explosions.
Israel, the Gulf States and others are therefore highly dubious of the deal’s capacity for freezing Iran’s nuclear program where it stands today, least of all roll it back, as President Barack Obama claimed.
DEBKAfile’s intelligence and military sources list seven of the most glaring loopholes in the first-step accord:
1. Parchin: This long-suspected facility remains out of UN oversight. President Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry boasted after the signing that daily IAEA inspections will take place at Fordo and Natanz. However, cameras are already fixed at both those facilities without an agreement, whereas
Tehran’s consistent denial of IAEA access to Parchin is not addrfessed.
2. Secret nuclear locations:  Under the heading "Possible Military Dimensions," the last IAEA report noted: "Since 2002, the Agency has become increasingly concerned about the possible existence in Iran of undisclosed nuclear related organizations, including activities related to the development of a payload for a missile.” 
The watchdog has received information indicating activities "relevant to the development of a nuclear explosive device." This was further corroborated by new information obtained since November 2011.
Tehran’s non-cooperation for investigating these findings is not mentioned in the Geneva interim accord, nor was it addressed in the negotiations.
3. Dirty bombs: Iran doesn’t need a full-scale nuclear bomb or missile warhead for attacking Israel. For decades, Tehran has been working on perfecting hundreds of dirty bombs as part of its nuclear program, by adding plutonium or enriched uranium to conventional bombs. These weapons are easy to make and easy to use. In the hands of Hizballah or other Shiite terrorist organizations in Syria or Iraq, for instance, they could be used to strike Israel without leaving a trail to Tehran.
This peril too was ignored by the six powers in
Geneva.
4. Rollback. While President Obama has presented the deal as a first step toward freezing or even rolling back “key aspects” of
Iran’s nuclear program. The fact remains that, so long as Iran is permitted to enrich uranium, even though this is restricted to a low 5 percent grade, it is free to produce as much fissile material as it wants, whenever it wants. This seems more like roll forward than roll back.
5. Enrichment. Obama and Kerry said the new deal does not recognize Iran’s right to enrich uranium. They were contradicted by the Iranian president and senior negotiator as well as Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov. So what is the truth? If Iran won recognition for this right, it blows the bottom out of the Non-Proliferating Treaty because, in no time, all the signatories may start enriching uranium with permission from the big powers. Neither is there any point in making Iran join the NPT’s Additional Protocol for snap inspections.
6. Centrifuges. Iran has undertaken not to add new centrifuges to its enrichment facilities, according to President Obama, but there is nothing to stop it from keeping up their production. In the six-month interregnum for negotiating a comprehensive nuclear deal, Tehran wins time to turn out enough centrifuges to substantially expand its production of enriched uranium.
9. A leap to breakout:  Far from being static or in freeze, as the Americans claim, Iran is free to step up centrifuge production and boost its stock of 3.5 percent enriched uranium, thereby accumulating enough material to enhance its capacity for producing enough weapons-grade uranium to break through to a nuclear bomb rapidly enough to defy detection by the IAEA or Western intelligence until it is too late.
 
The first loophole appeared hours after the new accord was signed:
Iran’s lead negotiator, Deputy Foreign Minister Seyed Abbas Araghchi, announced that his country’s enrichment rights had been recognized in the negotiations, after which Iranian President Hassan Rouhani praised the supreme leader’s guidelines for achieving world power recognition of Tehran's “nuclear rights.”
However, Secretary of State John Kerry in his first appearance after the signing denied this concession had been made. He said: “The first step, let me be clear, does not say that Iran has a right to enrich uranium."
Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov lined up solidly behind the Iranian version of the accord, confirming world recognition had been extended for 
Iran's right to peaceful nuclear energy, including the right for enrichment.
Out of step with the celebratory mood in Geneva and Washington, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu warned that the deal would not impede Iran’s capacity to gain a nuclear weapon. He challenged President Obama’s words that the deal was a historic achievement and called it a historic mistake, which would not obligate Israel. Israel, he said stood by its right to self defense against a regime dedicated to its destruction. As prime minister, Netanyahu pledged not to allow Iran to procure a nuclear weapon.
President Obama also announced that key aspects of
Iran’s nuclear program will be “rolled back” against limited sanctions relief and the release of deposits (nettng Iran $6-7 billion in revenue.) He said that no new centrifuges would be activated for the enrichment process, work would stop at the Arak heavy water reactor and UN inspections expanded to daily visits at the Natanz and Fordo enrichment plants to ensure that uranium is not enriched above the 5 percent permitted by the accord.

The core sanctions architecture will remain in place, Obama promised, pending a comprehensive solution to be negotiated in the next six months, but no new sanctions would be imposed.
Lavrov summed up the four-day conference by saying: "Considering the whole body of circumstance, there are no losers [in the
Geneva deal], all sides are winners” -   a view seriously challenged by Israel, Saudi Arabia and most other Middle East governments.

MORE INFORMATION ON THE UPCOMING BLOOD RED MOON TETRADS OF 2014 AND 2015.

THE UPCOMING BLOOD RED MOONS: 
We found the "blood-red moon" work interesting and began looking into possible connections to past and future "Jewish Feasts"… and to our amazement found there are very significant connections and trust that you will find this teaching fascinating too!
"And I will show wonders in the heavens, and in the earth, blood and fire and pillars of smoke.  The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the coming of the great and awesome day of Jehovah."  Joel 2:30 -31
"The sun shall be turned into darkness and the moon into blood, before that great and glorious Day of the Lord." Acts 2:20

The Jewish Talmud (book of tradition / Interpretation) says; "When the moon is in eclipse, it is a bad omen forIsrael. If its face is as red as blood, (it is a sign that) the sword is coming to the world." Therefore: Lunar Eclipse = bad omen for the Jewish people and Israel; Blood Moon = sword coming; Solar Eclipse = bad omen for the world.
Four, blood moons on Jewish Feast days within two years in Israel is very rare and has only occurred seven times since the time of Yeshua (Jesus). There are now four blood moons scheduled to appear in 2014/2015 and then there will NOT be any for the next 100 years.
Every time a blood moon pattern has appeared on Jewish feast days a big event affects the nation of Israel. The event affecting Israel begins just before the actual years of the blood moons. To understand what will happen in the 2014 - 2015 "blood moons" you must understand the pattern of blood moons in the past.
NASA found that we have had "blood-red moons" on the first day of Passover and the first day of Sukkothon back-to-back years seven times since 1 A.D. Three of these occurrences were connected to 1492 (the year the Jews were expelled from Spain by Queen Isabella) , 1948 (statehood for Israel and the War of Independence), and 1967 (the Six-Day War) — some of the most significant days in Jewish history. According to NASA - Four 'blood-red' TOTAL lunar eclipses WILL fall again on Passover and Sukkoth in 2014 and 2015… the same back-to-back occurrences at the time of 1492, 1948 and 1967.

Seven back-to-back, blood-red moons have fallen on the first day of Passover and Sukkoth, with the "eighth time"… coming in 2014 and 2015.
The meaning of the number "Eight"in the Bible is "New Beginnings"… The eighth day was new after God rested. There are 7 days in a week and the 8th day is a new beginning. Christ rose on the 8th day which was a new beginning for the world.
When the whole earth was covered with the flood, it was Noah "the eighth person" (2 Peter 2:5) who stepped out on to a new earth to commence a new order of things. "Eight souls" (1 Peter 3:20) passed through to the new or re-generated world.
Hence, too, circumcision was to be performed on the "eighth day" (Genesis 17:12), because it was the fore-shadowing of the true circumcision of the heart, that which was to be "made without hands," even "the putting off of the body of the sins of the flesh by the circumcision of Christ" (Colossians 2:11). This is connected with the new creation.
The first-born was to be given to Jehovah on the "eighth day" (Exodus 22: 29, 30)… and the Resurrection of Yeshua (Jesus) is ultimately signified when He rose from the dead on "the first day of the week," (Mark 16:9)that was of necessity the "eighth day."
 
Understand terms connected to “Blood Moons”…


 
Tetrad: When four consecutive lunar eclipses are all total eclipses, the group is known as a tetrad.
The Saros Cycle: is an eclipse cycle with a period of about 18 years 11 days 8 hours (approximately 65851/3 days) that can be used to predict eclipses of the Sun and Moon.  One cycle after an eclipse… the Sun, Earth, and Moon return to approximately the same relative geometry, and a nearly identical eclipse will occur west of the original location.
Tishri: Is the seventh month of the religious year for Israel and the first month of the civil year for Israel. This month holds the feasts of Rosh Hashanah, Yom Kippur, and Tabernacles (also known as Sukkoth).
Rosh Hashanah: This is a two day feast occurring on Tishri 1 and Tishri 2 of the Hebrew calendar. This is also called the feast of trumpets. A lot of people believe this feast day is tied to the rapture of the Christian Church prior to the start of the tribulation.
Yom Kippur: This is known as the Day of Atonement. It is considered to be one of the most important of Jewish Holidays of the year. It is a day set aside to atone for the sins of the past year. It occurs on the 10th day of Tishri. It is found in Leviticus 23:26-32.
Sukkoth (Tabernacles): The feast of Sukkoth begins on Tishri 15, the fifth day of Yom Kippur. It is a joyous feast day while Yom Kippur is one of the most solemn of feast days. Sukkoth is a feast day with a festival atmosphere. It marks a season of rejoicing. Sukkoth means booths and refers to temporary dwelling places the Jews gather into during this holiday. Most Christian Scholars believe the "Feast of Sukkoth" is the feast for the 2nd Advent of the Lord Jesus Christ when he returns with his saints on white horses at Armageddon.
AV: Av is the fifth month of the Hebrew Calendar. It is a time of mourning for the Jews. There are two festivals that are in Av; on the 9th and on the 15th. On the 9th of Av is Tisha B' Av which is a sad day when Jews fast. It recalls the two temples being destroyed and commemorates other tragic events throughout Jewish History. The other festival which happens in Av… is Tu B' Av. This is a happy occasion in which couples traditionally get together to arrange their wedding.

Nissan: The first month of the Jewish Religious Year - this occurs in the spring time. Passover Occurs on the 15th day of this month.
Passover: The Hebrew feast day commemorating the Lamb Sacrifice in Exodus where the Angel of Death passed over Israel while the firstborn in Egypt were slain. It also is the same day the Lord Yeshua (Jesus Christ), our lamb sacrifice for sins, was crucified.
Four PARTIAL lunar eclipses occurred on the Jewish Passover in 32 AD – 33 AD and the "Feast of Tabernacles" in the years before and after the Crucifixion of Yeshua HaMashiach (Jesus Christ). The world has since witnessed seven "Tetrads" coinciding with events impacting Jewish and Christian culture.
Seven Jewish Total Lunar Eclipses have occurred in the 1st & 2nd Millenniums:

Four TOTAL lunar eclipses occurred on the Jewish Passover and Feast of Tabernacles in 162 - 163 AD, coinciding with the worst persecution of Jews… and Christians in the history of the Roman Empire. Within 3 years the Antonine Plague killed eight million people, a third of the population.
