ISRAELI PARLIAMENT MEMBER RIPS UP NEW TESTAMENT
Calls book “abominable,” even though it was largely written by Jews.
Joel Rosenberg reports: Please pray for Michael Ben Ari. He’s a member of the Israeli parliament (Knesset) who this week was given the gift of a Hebrew New Testament study Bible by the Israeli Bible Society but chose to rip it to shreds and throw it into the garbage and do so in front of the press. It was a reprehensible act and a childish temper tantrum and the controversy over what he did and why he did it has made headlines here in Israel and around the world. The good news is several leading Israeli officials condemned Ben Ari’s action and called for him to apologize. Read more.
News from the Jerusalem Prayer Team
Iran’s atomic program has reached critical status. A report published in the Washington Post last November stated unequivocally that Iranian scientists have grasped the essential steps required to produce a nuclear weapon. Assistance from other countries has made it possible for them to surmount the fundamental technical issues that would allow the production of an atomic device. Israel has an open window for an attack on Iran’s nuclear production facilities, but that window will rapidly close. I believe the most likely time for such an attack is sometime between September 15th and October 15th. There are a number of reasons why this could happen. The presidential election in America is one factor that plays heavily in the timing of any attack. Another indicator is the massive buildup of US forces in the region.
In recent days, a third aircraft carrier battle group has been assigned to join the two
already operating in the Middle East. The Navy has sent advanced submersible anti-mine vehicles and drones to the region. An F-22 Air Force squadron has been positioned in the Gulf, and two Army brigades are stationed in Kuwait.
In the past few days, the spiritual leader of the Muslim Brotherhood (the party that just won the presidency of Egypt and earlier won a majority of the Parliament) called on every faithful Muslim to wage jihad against Israel. According to Egyptian sources, Muhammad Badi, the Muslim Brotherhood’s Supreme Guide, said it was necessary “to strive to save al-Quds [Jerusalem] from the hands of the rapist Israelis and to cleanse Palestine from the clutches of the occupation” and “called on all Muslims to wage jihad with their money and their selves to free al-Quds.”
IT’S NEWS TO ME
The Law of the Sea Treaty (LOST) Is Officially Sunk
GrassTopsUSA reports: As you may have already heard, Senator Jim DeMint announced yesterday that Senators Kelly Ayotte of New Hampshire, Rob Portman of Ohio and Johnny Isakson of Georgia put their opposition to LOST on record and stated without equivocation that they would vote against ratification; thereby giving DeMint the magic number of 34 Senators that was needed to stop this treaty.

TSA Let 25 Illegal Aliens Attend Flight School Owned by Illegal Alien
CNSNews.com reports: The Transportation Security Admin. (TSA) approved flight training for 25 illegal aliens at a Boston-area flight school that was owned by yet another illegal alien, according to the Government Accountability Office. The illegal-alien flight-school attendees included eight who had entered the country illegally and 17 who had overstayed their allowed period of admission into the United States, according to an audit by the GAO. Six of the illegal aliens were actually able to get pilot’s licenses. Read more.
Airplane Food Jihad: Needles in US-Bound Flight Sandwiches No Surprise
Debbie Schlussel reports:This past weekend’s airline catering jihad against Business Class passengers, involving needles in food on U.S.-bound flights from the Amsterdam’s Schiphol Airport, should have been no surprise. And it’s yet more sigh-worthy evidence of predictable loopholes that should have been plugged long ago in the nearly 11 years since the 9/11 Islamic terrorist attacks on America. I long ago warned on this site and elsewhere of Muslim employees of airline catering concerns for several reasons. As I’ve noted, neither they nor the food is ever checked with the same security as airline passengers and their carry-ons. Read more.
Support Members of Congress Calling for Muslim Brotherhood Investigation
Act for America: Recently Representative Michele Bachmann, along with Representatives
Trent Franks, Louie Gohmert, Thomas Rooney, and Lynn Westmoreland, sent letters to the Inspectors General (IGs) of the Departments of State; Justice; Homeland Security; Defense and the Office of the Director of National Intelligence. In those letters they asked for investigations into the influence of the Muslim Brotherhood within these agencies. See the letters they sent to the IGs by CLICKING HERE.
Shortly after the letters were sent, Representative Keith Ellison [a Muslim] fired off a letter of his own to the Members of Congress, demanding explanations. See Mr. Ellison’s letter by CLICKING HERE. Representative Bachmann politely replied to Congressman Ellison’s letter in her own 16 page-multi-footnoted-correspondence offering detail after detail about why the letters to the IGs were necessary. See Representative Bachmann’s response to Representative Ellison by CLICKING HERE.
