OUR ISRAELI CONNECTION
News from the Jerusalem Prayer Team
The Muslim Brotherhood won the Egyptian presidential election, and while their new leader told the world what it wanted to hear, his first internal statement was that Jerusalem would be the capital of Egypt! He said, “We say it loud and clear our capital shall not be Cairo or Mecca or Medina-it shall be Jerusalem. Our cry shall be millions of martyrs march toward Jerusalem. Banish the sleep from the eyes of all Jews. Come on you lovers of martyrdom-you are all Hamas!”
The Muslim Brotherhood is taking over Egypt. How far it will be allowed to go depends on whether or not the military is willing to intervene and halt the downhill slide to an Islamic caliphate in the land of the Pharaohs. A neighbor in the region has every reason to be on pins and needles as events unfold. Israel has been warned by Mohammed Badie, head of the Brotherhood, that: “We are totally unhappy with the illicit marriage between Cairo and Tel Aviv.” In the early days of the uprising in Cairo, and while maintaining plausible deniability, the newly elected Muslim Brotherhood candidate Mohamed Morsi was seen sitting behind Muslim cleric Yusuf al-Qaradawi as he delivered a diatribe against Israel. He appeared to be nodding in agreement as the crowd was zealously notified that Jerusalem would be designated the capital of a coming Caliphate.
News from the Israel Project
What does the Polynesian island nation of Tuvalu have to do with efforts to stop Iran developing a nuclear weapon? Quite a lot, it turns out. As the United States and its allies restrict Iran’s ability to ship and sell its oil around the world, the Iranians have turned to the Pacific island nation of 11,000 for help. According to the BBC, 15 of Iran’s 39 oil tankers are now flying the Tuvalu flag. Two are currently sailing in the Red Sea, heading towards Ain Sukhna on Egypt’s Suez bank. Another six to 10 Iranian tankers have started flying the Tanzanian flag, according to Howard Berman, the ranking member of the House Committee on Foreign Affairs. Berman recently warned Tanzania it could face U.S. sanctions if it continued to allow its flag to be flown on Iranian ships. Read more.

IT’S NEWS TO ME
Congressman: American Schools Should Be Modeled After Islam & Use Koran
Freedom Outpost reports: Rep. Andre Carson (D-IN), the Muslim congressman who once said that the Tea Party would “love” to see black Americans “hanging on a tree,” made another controversial statement during a May 26 speech. This time he gave what is at the heart of the Islamic mind and that is the indoctrination of Islam into the West. Speaking about the American education system, Carson told the audience that American schools should be modeled after Madrassas and touted the benefits of schools that use the Koran as their “foundation.” Read more.
Police Allow Muslims to Attack Christians
Right Side News reports: In the video below, we see a small number of Christians who gathered holding Christian signs at the 2012 Dearborn, Michigan Arab festival being assaulted by Muslims with bottles, stones, and other objects. The police do not protect the Christians or take action against the perpetrators; in the end, they reprimand the Christians and instruct them to leave. Ever since, there has been no coverage of this outrageous event in our media. Nor has CAIR or any other Muslim organization denounced the Muslims who abused the Christians. Watch video and/or read more.
