Deported for exposing Vatican plans for Jerusalem

The Traveller magazine/tabloid for backpackers and such, published in Jerusalem (now defunct) and formerly available throughout Israel, especially in Jerusalem, Tel Aviv, Haifa and Eilat ( from one end of Israel to the other), ran a full-page article I wrote entitled: 'Will Jerusalem Become an International City?'

The Jerusalem Post ('A Traveler's fanzine takes off' by Giden Keren, 07-08-96) reported:
'The one time The Traveller did run a political piece, it ruffled feathers with the local authorities. In 'Will Jerusalem become an international city?' by American writer David Ben-Ariel, readers were warned about a German-Vatican plot to take over Jerusalem, urged to take back the Temple Mount and dislodge 'as symbols of foreign occupation' Al-Aqsa Mosque and the Dome of the Rock.

'David Ben-Ariel was a nice non-Jewish guy with strong views and a great love for this country,' says Nick Day, 'but he probably was talking a bit too much when he should have kept his mouth shut.'

Following publication of that article, Ben-Ariel was arrested and locked up for a week [actually two] before being expelled from the country. Ever since, The Traveller has been a bit sheepish about accepting political material... /

Israeli investigative author Barry Chamish mentions my unjust deportation in his book Traitors and Carpetbaggers in the Promised Land and remarks at how the Israeli government OVERREACTED to my article. He feels that's why they deported me: exposing the German-Vatican plot to occupy Jerusalem! I think that's definitely part of it but that it's all involved with highlighting the plight of the Temple Mount.

Nothing new under the sun. Were the accusations made against Stephen true? Or against Paul?

Acts 6

8 And Stephen, full of faith and power, did great wonders and signs among the people. 9 Then (Satan got stirred up as a result) there arose some from what is called the Synagogue of the Freedmen (Cyrenians, Alexandrians, and those from Cilicia and Asia), disputing with Stephen. 10 And they were not able to resist the wisdom and the Spirit by which he spoke. 11 Then they secretly induced men to say, “We have heard him speak blasphemous words against Moses and God.” 12 And they stirred up the people, the elders, and the scribes; and they came upon him, seized him, and brought him to the council. 13 They also set up false witnesses who said, “This man does not cease to speak blasphemous words against this holy place and the law; 14 for we have heard him say that this Jesus of Nazareth will destroy this place and change the customs which Moses delivered to us.” 15 And all who sat in the council, looking steadfastly at him, saw his face as the face of an angel.

Interfaith Sages Council Established for Jerusalem

Interfaith Sages Council Established for Jerusalem
16:13 Jan 31, '07 / 12 Shevat 5767
by Nissan Ratzlav-Katz

Jerusalem Mayor Uri Lupolianski declared that a local Sages Council will soon be established, comprised of religious and secular leaders representing the three predominant monotheistic faiths.

Making the announcement during a municipality reception this week marking the new year of 2007, Mayor Lupolianski explained that the council's role will be to improve and enhance the lives of the people of Jerusalem, to create dialogue and understanding between Jews, Muslims and Christians, and to overcome boundaries for all those living in the city.

"The council will ignore the so-called 'large, international politics,' which often works in the name of anonymous interests, with no regard for the people living in Jerusalem," Lupolianski said. "The council will set an example for peaceful co-existence and will enable us all to overcome difficulties, solve disputes, get to know each other better and share the vast knowledge we've all accumulated, all for one common goal - the [welfare of the] city of Jerusalem and its residents."

Sages Councils such as that announced by the mayor were common in several cities long ago. Their role was to consolidate ideas for the improvement of their respective cities.

Mayor Lupolianski came up with the idea to create such a council in Jerusalem following meetings he held with Jewish, Christian and Muslim religious leaders from various denominations. One of the topics raised in those meetings was the lack of direct dialogue between the various communities populating the city, which is one of the most diverse in the world. Sometimes, people who live just a few feet from one another needed a mediator in order to communicate, municipality spokesman Gideon Schmerling said. This lack of dialogue is one of the reasons Schmerling noted for tensions flaring occasionally between the various religious and ethnic denominations, with Mayor Lupolianski often called in to mediate.

In light of this reality, Lupolianski believes that regular meetings of the council, several times a year, will promote inter-cultural dialogue and improve the quality of life for all the people of Jerusalem.

"Woe to Ariel, Ariel, the city where David dwelt" (Isaiah 29:1).

The Vatican is pulling its strings, turning up the heat on Jerusalem, with all these wolves in sheep's clothing proposals. What a shame that Jerusalem's Mayor Uri Lupolianski is playing along with it, like Ehud Olmert, playing with strange fire that will burn all Jerusalem and scorch Israel.

The ongoing Holy See- State of Israel collaboration conjures up these vile ideas with the aim of undermining Israeli sovereignty over Jerusalem, and then when it's sufficiently weakened, brazenly insisting upon the implementation of the accursed UN Resolution 181 to deal the death blow to Jewish control of the Holy City and supplant it with German-Jesuit EU supervision -- as replacement theology demands.

Let Mayor Lupolianski spend his time more constructively by demanding Israel's 1967 Law for the Protection of the Holy Places is enforced, putting an end to the Nazi-Muslim occupation of the Temple Mount where the Wakf discriminates daily against Christians and Jews. Remove the foreign mosques and prepare for the House of Prayer for All Peoples.

Grand Master turns up the heat on Jerusalem

Grand Master turns up heat on Jerusalem

Address of the Grand Master to the Diplomatic Corps
Rome, 9 January 2007

His Most Eminent Highness the Prince and Grand Master,
Fra' Andrew BERTIE

I will visit the Holy Land during 2007 within the framework of an international pilgrimage that I will be carrying out next October.

In this spirit I would like to recall the various observations which have been made over the years with regard to the problem of the Holy Places, and in particular the position of the Holy See in relation to Jerusalem. A city of three religions, it is at the same time a land of two peoples, Jews and Palestinians, as well as a World Heritage centre. Pilgrims from all over the world must be able to have access to it. It should thus be given a special, internationally guaranteed statute.

The Sovereign Order of Malta, for whom the protection of the Holy Places has always been an absolute priority in its mission in the service of the Church and in its hospitaller and humanitarian activities, is at the disposal of governments to help seek any kind of solution, bearing in mind the aspirations and legitimate interests of the different populations involved.

This is because Jerusalem must be a permanent place for seeking peace and reconciliation between religions, peoples and cultures. [Emphasis mine]

The cauldron that is Jerusalem is having the heat turned up by a series of planned events, the concerted efforts of Roman wolves in sheep's clothing, orchestrated by the Vatican. The Roman Catholic Cult, the Babylonian Mystery religion, covets the Holy City and aims on wresting control of Ariel (Jerusalem's nickname) from Israeli sovereignty by any means necessary. The Time of Jacob's Trouble is brewing in the North.

Due to the inexcusable increase in Israeli sins, especially their rejection of the miracle of 1967 -- the Six Day War that liberated Jerusalem and its biblical territories from Arab occupation, namely Judaism's holiest site, the Temple Mount -- and because so many Israelis tolerated the intolerable expulsion of Jews from their homes in Gush Katif and Shomron rather than return to God and remove the threat of sworn Arab enemies, the Great Creator God of Jacob-Israel will permit the King of the North (the imminent wannabe divine emperor elect by the German-Jesuits) to have his way with Israel, to pollute His Holy Land and stomp Jerusalem with his filthy EU jackboot for three and a half years -- a signature act that God has so decreed it (Dan. 12:7).

Jeremiah 1:13-16

13 And the word of the LORD came to me the second time, saying, "What do you see?"

And I said, "I see a boiling pot, and it is facing away from the north."

14 Then the LORD said to me:

"Out of the north calamity shall break forth

On all the inhabitants of the land.

15 For behold, I am calling

All the families of the kingdoms of the north," says the LORD;

"They shall come and each one set his throne

At the entrance of the gates of Jerusalem,

Against all its walls all around,

And against all the cities of Judah.

16 I will utter My judgments

Against them concerning all their wickedness,

Because they have forsaken Me,

Burned incense to other gods,

And worshiped the works of their own hands.

Israel's election of the bought and paid for foreign interest party, the rotten to the core Kadima party of prostitutes and criminals, proved Israel was intent on going backwards, dead set on digging themselves in deeper, rather than going forward (as Kadima means "forward" in Hebrew, twisted purposely in true Luciferian style - Isa. 5:20) to get out of their national mess:

Jeremiah 7:23-24

23 But this is what I commanded them, saying, 'Obey My voice, and I will be your God, and you shall be My people. And walk in all the ways that I have commanded you, that it may be well with you.' 24 Yet they did not obey or incline their ear, but followed the counsels and the dictates of their evil hearts, and went backward and not forward.

Both Torah-observant Jews and Christian Zionists warned Israelis against Kadima and encouraged them to remember the Land Covenant to keep it (it's the Promised Land of Israel). Men and women of faith implored Israelis to refuse to surrender to post-Zionist forces who would continue to dismember the Jewish Homeland to forge an accursed "Palestine" that would ultimately burn every Jew.

The Grand Master, quoted above, is thinly veiling his references to UN Resolution 181. It's been laying in wait all these years, like the secret Nazis -- both about to come back with a vengeance!

Catholic Europe is determined to restore their Royals to dormant thrones and revive the "Holy Roman Empire" with its crown: the Crusader-Kingdom of Jerusalem.

Treacherous Jews, UNJews, apostate Jews, aid and abet those who would undermine Israeli sovereignty over Jerusalem. Forces within and without the Holy Land are driven to help Rome fulfill its grand design and pave the way to transfer Israel's most prized possession, its priceless crown jewel -- the Temple Mount -- to the Vatican. Mt. Zion is already under siege, as they seek to secure a foothold to breach the Holy City.

The glorious good news, our glimmer of hope in this growing world of darkness, is that Two Witnesses will rise and shine and testify in occupied Jerusalem and face the nations and address Israel's captive audience -- in the spirit of Elijah -- and give hope and comfort that our God will come and save us. The unholy alliance between Ahab (Israelites and Jews) and Jezebel (Roman Catholic Cult) will soon be history, as we're assured its days are numbered.

Connie Fogal sets the record straight about the SPP

Beyond Babylon ^ | 01-26-07 | Connie Fogal

Barbara Yaffe is completely out of touch with the reality when she says, "The checks and balances are in the parliamentary system." It is not our Parliamentary system that is in play here. This is a shadow government of live people who are usurping our Parliament without any check or balance. They are reshaping Canada, Mexico, and the USA under US dominance into a North American entity that is to be governed by unelected panels and tribunals with no accountability to the people. They intend to operate completely outside the reach of national legal systems and national constitutions. There is to be no democratic process and no sovereignty.

The Two Witnesses of Revelation 11

The Two Witnesses will offer hope and comfort to our captive audience, the Jewish and Israelite peoples under the German-Jesuit jackboot. The Two Witnesses will help prepare Judah for the prophesied repentance that will welcome Yeshua to return and liberate Jerusalem from the European Beast and European False Prophet who will pollute the holy Temple upon the Temple Mount.

Jews to receive Jesus as Israel's King!

Jews to receive Jesus as Israel's King!
by David Ben-Ariel

Is there strong indication in the Bible that Israel will have a change of heart and accept Yeshua because of the preaching of two prophets in Jerusalem, the Two Witnesses announced in Zechariah 4 and Revelation 11? Will the Jews grasp Jesus is the Anointed One, the Lamb and Lion of God, and finally convert?

Yes! There is definite proof of such as Yeshua clearly said He wouldn't return to Jerusalem, Judah or the Jews until they have a change of heart and welcome Him. The Two Witnesses, in the power and spirit of Elijah (who is dead and buried and awaits the First Resurrection), will prepare the way by preparing our people to receive our King!

Matthew 23:39

39 for I say to you, you shall see Me no more till you say, 'Blessed is He who comes in the name of the LORD!'

Zechariah the prophet foresees such a long-awaited repentance and recognition! The Jews in Jerusalem will perceive that the Pierced One is the Firstborn of Judah and the Firstborn of God -- our King Messiah!

Zechariah 12:10-15

10 "And I will pour on the house of David and on the inhabitants of Jerusalem the Spirit of grace and supplication; then they will look on Me whom they pierced. Yes, they will mourn for Him as one mourns for his only son, and grieve for Him as one grieves for a firstborn. 11 In that day there shall be a great mourning in Jerusalem, like the mourning at Hadad Rimmon in the plain of Megiddo. 12 And the land shall mourn, every family by itself: the family of the house of David [political establishment] by itself, and their wives by themselves; the family of the house of Nathan by itself, and their wives by themselves; 13 the family of the house of Levi [religious establishment] by itself, and their wives by themselves; the family of Shimei by itself, and their wives by themselves; 14 all the families that remain, every family by itself, and their wives by themselves.

Yeshua, first and foremost, is the King of the Jews, the King of Israel (all Twelve Tribes of Israel). Yeshua is coming back specifically to keep alive God's physical promise to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob and our Israelite forefathers who left Egypt: the iron-clad promise that the Fathers will always have some survivors, some physical remnant, beyond any shadow of a doubt.

The cities of Judah will hear this message loud and clear:

Matthew 24:22

22 And unless those days were shortened, no flesh would be saved; but for the elect’s sake those days will be shortened.

Romans 11:28

28 Concerning the gospel they are enemies for your sake, but concerning the election they are beloved for the sake of the fathers.

Leviticus 26:44-45

44 Yet for all that, when they are in the land of their enemies, I will not cast them away, nor shall I abhor them, to utterly destroy them and break My covenant with them; for I am the LORD their God.

45 But for their sake I will remember the covenant of their ancestors, whom I brought out of the land of Egypt in the sight of the nations, that I might be their God: I am the LORD.

We are the physical elect, the physical Chosen People -- primarily the British-Israelites and Jews, Joseph and Judah -- for whose sakes' those days will be cut short by divine intervention or we would all be history and Satan could say God is a liar. But God's Word is good and true and He will prepare our people by a baptism of repentance by the Two Witnesses, speaking to our captive audience from Jerusalem (having been conquered by the German-Jesuit EU), giving us the GOOD NEWS that our personal lord and NATIONAL SAVIOR, our NATIONAL DELIVERER, is coming soon to save us.

It is this glorious GOOD NEWS that I share within the first chapter of Beyond Babylon: Europe's Rise and Fall, appropriately called: "Survival Guaranteed!"

Will Israel investigate Shimon Peres' role in Yitzhak Rabin's assassination?

Hendel Proposes to Annul Statute of Limitations on Murder of PM
16:17 Jan 15, '07 / 25 Tevet 5767
by Baruch Gordon

MK Tzvi Hendel (National Union) is sponsoring a law enabling the state to prosecute a person suspected of murdering a prime minister anytime after the event, without any criminal limitations period.

Did Shimon Peres get away with murder? Let the Israeli authorities investigate the role of Shimon Peres in the assassination of Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin.

It appears Yitzhak Rabin was sacrificed by the Israeli oligarchy for their German-Jesuit masters intent on occupying Jerusalem.

Shimon Peres Came to Power Over Rabin's Dead Body

Hitler Will Judge Us!

Hitler Will Judge Us!

Silence = Death

We must plead on behalf of the innocent, and be the voice of those without adequate representation. The greatest crime against humanity is going on now! Yet millions of professing Christians look the other way in shameful silence: ABORTION! It used to be a country’s worst enemies who ripped up their pregnant women—now we’ve turned on ourselves. Don't abort our future: Think twice, choose life, let love grow.

Defend life: present the case of the preborn before the public, and rescue them from the abortionist’s kangaroo court. We’ve sacrificed our children on the altars of convenience, baptized our babies in blood, and trashed their grisly remains—if they haven’t been sold for Nazi experiments. Where’s the moral outrage been? Why haven’t we demanded that our government intervene? Stop the slaughter!

God sees the bloodbath we’re permitting. He knows the hard hearts, calloused consciences, and dishonest individuals that are involved and will bring them to trial: "Shall I not punish them for these things? says the LORD. And shall I not avenge Myself on such a nation as this?" (Jer. 5:9). No wonder God’s going to allow our German-Jesuit enemies to be so cruel!

HITLER Will Judge Us!

Hitler’s Nazi Germany will rise up in judgment against our hypocritical nations! We condemned them and now we’re acting worse than they did! We didn’t buy their lame excuses of ignorance or blind obedience, and yet today we try to hide our horrors behind "it’s the law of the land."

We allow DEATH CLINICS in major cities, and support those mad doctors who ought to be tried for murder. We condemned those German businesses who became rich at others expense, and yet our land is filled with the abortionists' BLOOD MONEY! It’s not a God-given right to take the life of your child.

That some would argue it’s not a baby, and others attempt to justify this carnage…. It’s obvious we’re under a CURSE if we can’t even think straight! Our Puritan ancestors properly discerned, “Whom God would destroy, He first sends mad” (Deut. 28:28). God save us from ourselves...

Arnold's Office Refuses to Comment (update)

Arnold's Office Refuses to Comment
by David Ben-Ariel

The European Observer reported:

"Europe's far right parties are considering forming a pan-European movement together."

Will Arnold Schwarzenegger, frustrated by failures to run for the highest office in the United States, return home to Europe and triumph in the elections as the "born leader" of the pan-European movement's party? Will the EU's strong man then vent his anger against the United States and wreak havoc on the world?

When I called Governor Schwarzenegger's office the first time to inquire "Has Governor Schwarzenegger ever considered running for president of the European Union or would he consider it?" (Presently only possible when Austria has the EU presidency but the winds of change are blowing). The fellow said he was pretty sure he wouldn't. When I asked, "Is that a yes or a no," he said he hadn't heard him say anything about it. That's not what I asked. I wanted a concrete yes or no answer. Not a guess.

He then put me through to Lee in the Press Office who graciously took note of my questions and said if she found out anything she'd give me a call. I called again to leave my email, rather than just my phone number. Still didn't hear anything after some time, so I just called and she said they had no comment.

When pressed as to does that means Mr. Schwarzenegger doesn't plan to run for European office, or doesn't want to discuss it, for whatever reasons, she simply said "We don't have any comment for your book." When I said what should I say when I write about Arnold's refusal to answer a simple question, she said say the "Press office declines to comment." WHY?

Now, according to The European Observer:

Socialists urge political embargo against far-right group -- "The new far-right group – calling itself "Identity, Tradition, Sovereignty" likely to be formally constituted next week- teams up a mixed bunch of anti-immigrant and xenophobic MEPs, with a leader who is awaiting a court verdict for questioning the Holocaust... Greens leader Monica Frassoni said the group's creation "is a sad reflection of the reality of today's Europe," but added that in practice, not much will change.

'The extreme right MEPs already sit in this house and the fact that they are organised in a political group will not give them more influence in the parliament. They will remain marginal.'"

Wishful thinking? Failure to face growing resentment over Muslim intimidation throughout Europe?

Nothing against Arnold Schwarzenegger personally, but my first thought and concern as an American born and raised here in our Promised Land, is why would we want a German (he was born in Austria, hence Germanic) in control of California on our strategic West Coast? Especially when, as Herbert W. Armstrong so correctly warned through the pages of The Plain Truth magazine and World Tomorrow broadcast (formerly headquartered in Pasadena, California), the Nazi movement only went underground and began to lay the foundation for their return. Germany's Fourth Reich (taking ugly shape and beastly form in the fascist EU) was to be funded by German industrialists throughout the world who were to seek key positions to enable them to abuse their authority to further Germany's grand design. Something to seriously think about as it increasingly appears mission accomplished.

How many German plants in America are serving the interests of Germany's budding Fourth Reich? It's not only German factories and German businesses in America proving “that basic thoroughness of the orderly German” (Johannes Gross), since the secret Nazis had predetermined such a strategy, but bought and paid for American prostitutes in diverse and perverse positions of power who aid and abet them. They expose our country to danger and will leave us infected as a nuclear wasteland!

Now that Herr Schwarzenegger is in control of California, he undoubtedly craves the presidency of the United States, especially since he's convinced he was "born to rule" and has more than an admiration for historical dictators, swaying millions. If he is unable to claim that coveted prize, would he, in fierce frustration, return to Europe and go after its reigns and ride the EU bull with the Bavarian pope's blessings?

The New German Nazism

The New German Nazism

By William E. Grim

I'm not Jewish. Nobody in my family died in the Holocaust. For me, anti-Semitism has always been one of those phenomena that doesn't really register on my radar, like tribal genocide in Rwanda, a horrible thing that happens to someone else. But I live in a small town outside of Munich on a street that until May of 1945 was named Adolf-Hitler-Strasse. I work in Munich, a pleasant metropolitan city of a little over a million inhabitants whose Bavarian charm tends to obscure the fact that this city was the birthplace and capital of the Nazi movement. Every day when I go to work I pass by the sites of apartments Hitler lived in, extant buildings in which decisions were made to murder millions of innocent people, and plazas in which book burnings took place, SS troops paraded and people were executed. The proximity to evil has a way of concentrating one's attention, of putting a physical reality to the textbook narratives of the horrors perpetrated by the Germans.

Then the little things start to happen that over a period of time add up to something very sinister. I'm on a bus and a high school boy passes around Grandpa's red leather-bound copy of Mein Kampf to his friends who respond by saying "coooool!." He then takes out a VCR tape (produced in Switzerland) of "The Great Speeches of Joseph Goebbels." A few weeks later I'm at a business meeting with four young highly educated Germans who are polite, charming and soft-spoken to say the least. When the subject matter changes to a business deal with a man in New York named Rubinstein, their nostrils flair, their demeanors attain a threatening mien and one of them actually says, and I'm quoting verbatim here: "The problem with America is that the Jews have all the money."

They start laughing and another one says, "Yeah, all the Jews care about is money."

You could have knocked me over with a feather. I half expected one of them to start talking about the historical veracity of The Protocols of the Elders of Zion. Here were four young, charming, well-educated Germans spewing forth anti-Semitic bilk that would have made Julius Streicher proud. I found that this type of anti-Semitic reference in my professional dealings with Germans soon became a leitmotif (to borrow a term made famous by Richard Wagner, another notorious German anti-Semite). In my private meetings with Germans it often happens that they will loosen up after a while and reveal personal opinions and political leanings that were thought to have ceased to exist in a Berlin bunker on April 30, 1945.

Maybe it's because I have blond hair and my last name is of German origin that the Germans feel that I am, or could potentially be, "one of them." It shows how much they understand what it means to be an American. Whatever the reason, the conversations generally have one or more of these components:
(1) It was unfortunate that America and Germany fought each other in World War II because the real enemy was Russia.
(2) Yes, the Nazis were excessive, but terrible things happen during wars, and anyway, the scope of the Holocaust has been greatly exaggerated by the American media, which is dominated by Jews.
(3) CNN is controlled by American Jews and is anti-Palestinian. [Yes, I know it sounds incredible, but even among the most highly intelligent Germans, even those with a near-native fluency in English, there is the widespread belief that the news network founded by Fidel Castro's best friend Ted Turner, who until recently was married to Hanoi Jane Fonda, is a hotbed of pro-Israeli propaganda.]
(4) Almost all Germans were opposed to the Third Reich and nobody in Germany knew anything about the murder of the Jews, but the Jews themselves were really responsible for the Holocaust.
(5) Ariel Sharon is worse than Hitler and the Israelis are Nazis. America supports Israel only because Jews control the American government and media.

For the first time in my life, then, I became conscious of anti-Semitism. Sure, anti- Semitism exists elsewhere in the world, but nowhere have the consequences been as devastating as in Germany.

Looking at it as objectively as possible, 2002 has been a banner year for anti-Semitism in Germany. Synagogues have been firebombed, Jewish cemeteries desecrated, the No. 1 best-selling novel, Martin Walser's Death of a Critic, is a thinly-veiled roman à clef containing a vicious anti-Semitic attack on Germany's best-known literary critic, Marcel Reich-Ranicki ( who is a survivor of both the Warsaw ghetto and Auschwitz), the Free Democrat Party has unofficially adopted anti-Semitism as a campaign tactic to attract Germany's sizeable Muslim minority, and German revisionist historians now are beginning to define German perpetration of World War II and the Holocaust not as crimes against humanity, but as early battles (with regrettable but understandable excesses) in the Cold War against communism. The situation is so bad that German Jews are advised not to wear anything in public that would identify them as Jewish because their safety cannot be guaranteed.

How can this be? Isn't this the "New Germany" that's gone 57 straight years without a Holocaust or even a pogrom, where truth, justice and the German way prevail amidst economic wealth, a high standard of living that is the envy of their European neighbors, and a constitution guaranteeing freedom for everyone regardless of race, creed or national origin? What's changed? The answer is: absolutely nothing.

My thesis is quite simple. While Germany no longer has the military power to enforce the racist ideology of the Nazis and while all extreme manifestations of Nazism are officially outlawed, the internal conditions--that is, the attitudes, worldview and cultural assumptions--that led to the rise of Nazism in Germany are still present because they constitute the basic components of German identity. Nazism was not an aberration; it was the distillation of the German psyche into its essential elements. External Nazism may have been utterly defeated in May of 1945; internal Nazism, however, remains, and will always remain, a potential threat as long as there exists a political and/or cultural entity known as Germany.

Now hold on a second, I hear many people saying. You can't possibly claim that Germans are as anti-Semitic today as they were during the years 1933-1945. It is true that Germany today is much different than during the Third Reich. What is different is that due to its total defeat by the Allies, Germany today is a client state of America and must do its bidding. That means repression of overt anti-Semitism. It's bad for business.

The other thing that has changed is that, even though Hitler lost World War II, he was phenomenally successful in carrying out his ideological agenda. Germany, indeed virtually all of Europe, is essentially "Judenfrei" (free of Jews) today due to the efficiency and zeal of the Germans as they perpetrated the Holocaust during the Third Reich. In fact, a very convincing case can be made that Nazism is one of the most successful political programs of all time. It accomplished more of its goals in a shorter amount of time than any other comparable political movement and permanently changed the face and political structure of several continents. Germany is wealthy, stable, relentlessly bourgeois and for all intents and purposes, free of Jews.

Yes, there is a tiny minority of Jews mostly centered in Berlin, and yes, there have been a number of Jews from the former Soviet Union who have emigrated to Germany, but most of the immigrants from Russia are not practicing Jews and do little if anything to promote a unique Jewish-German identity. The result of all this is that Germans today are able to reap the benefits of Hitler's anti-Semitic policies while paying lip service to the "need to remember."

Young Fritz doesn't have to be overtly anti-Semitic today because his grandfather's generation did such a bang-up job of the Holocaust. There just aren't that many Jews left to hate any more, and besides, the Germans have their old buddies, the Arabs, to do their hating for them. You might call the overwhelming German support for the Palestinians to be a form of anti-Semitism-by-proxy.

The German government has made cash payments to the State of Israel, as well as to individual Jews, to settle claims of murder, torture, false imprisonment, slave labor and genocide. Talk to most Germans and you'll soon discover that they think that the score has been settled between Germany and the Jews, that somehow the return of just a portion of what the Germans stole from the Jews is fair recompense for the deliberate murder of millions of people. If you think the Germans are truly sorry for what they did to the Jews, think again. There's never been an official "tut mir leid" offered by the Germans to the victims of the Holocaust and their descendants because that would admit culpability. Germany GmbH has paid off all claims against it without acknowledging responsibility in the same way that the Ford Motor Company engages in recalls of automobiles. It's all done to avoid liability.

German dialogue about the Holocaust is largely done in the subjunctive, passive mood: "Mistakes were made." But never: "We were wrong." The reason for this, I believe, is the myth of German superiority, overtly stated during the Nazi years, but still a major component of the German psyche.

Why is it that the Germans believe they are superior to all other nationalities? It is true that there have been many great German (and especially Austrian) composers, but Verdi is every bit as great a composer as Wagner. Literature? Yes, Goethe is one of the most important writers of all time, but as a dramatist he is a pale shadow compared to Shakespeare, and as a novelist he hardly compares to Dostoevsky and Tolstoy. Engineering and science? Perhaps, but making good-quality cars is not on the same level as sending men to the moon and returning them safely. And we all know who figured out first how to make an atomic bomb. Cuisine, lifestyle, architecture? Now you've got to be kidding. Just think France and Italy.

No, the German belief in their superiority is a form of self-delusion and is based upon pretty thin gruel. Ironically, it may be that bad boy of German philosophy, Friedrich Nietzsche himself, who supplied the reason for this phenomenon. Nietzsche believed that moral systems and notions of national chauvinism were largely the result of ressentiment, that is, the members of a politically weak people band together in their resentment of their more powerful neighbors and convince one another that, while they may be politically weak, they are somehow "morally superior" to their competitors. This could very well explain the German superiority complex in the face of political weakness from the time of the Roman Empire to the Wilhelmine period beginning in the 1870s. It surely goes far to explain present-day German notions of superiority in the face of their devastating military defeat in World War II and subsequent relegation to second-tier status among the community of nations.

I have peviously mentioned that Germans overwhelmingly support the Palestinians as opposed to the Israelis, and that this overwhelming support represents a form of anti-Semitism-by-proxy. Germans may claim to be supporting the Palestinians because they think they are an "oppressed people," but let's be honest -- they are supporting the Palestinians and their Arabs handlers because the Palestinians and Arabs share the same ideals as the Nazis.

There's a long-standing history of German co-operation with the Arabs. In 1942 Hitler personally assured the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem that as soon as German forces conquered Great Britain, the Jews in Palestine (which was then under control of the British Mandate) would be exterminated. We should also keep in mind that the Arab terrorists who perpetrated the 9/11 atrocities did their planning in Germany. There are several reasons for this. The first is the well-known bungling and decentralized chaos of the German federal bureaucracy where literally the "links" hand doesn't know what the "rechts" hand is doing. The second is that Arab terrorists can count on a substantial number of Germans who share their anti-American and anti-Semitic views. The former members of the SS and Hitler's praetorian guards, along with their neo-Nazi supporters, who gather weekly in Munich beer halls, made Osama Bin Laden an "honorary Aryan" after the 9/11 attack.

Mein Kampf is also a best seller in the Arab world, especially in Saudi Arabia, America's putative "friend." Indeed, there is very little difference between the anti-Semitic rantings of Hitler and those of the so-called "spiritual leaders" of Al-Qaeda, Hamas, and Al-Fatah. The Arabs also owe Hitler and the Germans big time. Hitler killed off the Jews, and Konrad Adenauer and his "democratic" descendants replaced them with the Turks. Yes, the Turks aren't Arabs, but they are Muslim, and although Turkey is a member of NATO and has foreign relations with Israel, many Turks identify and support their radical Arab co-religionists. Turkey remains as fragile a democracy as Weimar Germany during the 1920s. It wouldn't take much for Turkey to fall into the dark side of Muslim extremism.

The end results of Muslim immigration into Germany have been twofold: (1) It allows the Germans to feign liberalism and being open to freedom and diversity; and (2) By replacing the Jews they murdered with Muslims, who for the most part are as viciously anti-Semitic as were the Nazis, the Germans have cynically assured that those few Jews who remain in Germany will be unable to reassert political power even in a minority role.

German politicians have now begun to express anti-Semitic viewpoints as a means to curry favor with Germany's substantial Muslim minority. The most notorious example of this is Juergen Moellemann, the Jew-baiting second-in-command of the Free Democrat Party, the political faction that is most closely identified with business interests (favoring policies such as lowering taxes and reducing government expenditures) and other issues of a libertarian slant. Moellemann's strategy is quite simple. In a parliamentary system like Germany's where seats are awarded by proportional voting and in a party like the FDP which seldom garners more 10% of the vote, making an extremist anti-Semitic appeal to racist Muslims is an attempt to gain 1% or 2% of the vote which could result in the FDP becoming the minority partner in a coalition government if the Christian Democratic Party as expected wins the national elections in Germany in September. What is particularly worrisome here is that in CDU/FDP coalition governments in the past, the post of foreign minister has traditionally gone to the FDP. If this occurs again, Germany could shortly have the most anti-Semitic foreign policy since the days of Joachim von Ribbentrop.

A final point that I would like to make concerning the reasons for the resurgence of anti-Semitism in Germany is one that many will find at odds with the prima-facie evidence, or even appear to stretch the boundaries of common sense. Yet, I ask you to consider carefully my line of reasoning.

In many respects Germany got away with the Holocaust without paying much of a price. Yes, many Germans died as a result of German perpetration of World War II and the Holocaust, and yes, there was much physical destruction in the country, but the situation is like the little boy who steals a cookie from the tray when it is cooling on the kitchen table. For his efforts he may have gotten his hand slapped by his mother, but the stolen cookie remains eaten nonetheless.

After having committed the worst crimes in the history of humankind, the Germans were allowed to regain their sovereignty after only ten years, their infrastructure was completely rebuilt thanks to the generosity of the American people, and relatively few Germans were brought to trial for their monstrous crimes. Even those who were tried and convicted received relatively short sentences or had those reduced or commuted in general amnesties. For example, some members of the Einsatzkommandos, those Germans who, before the construction of the death camps, hunted and murdered Jews by the hundreds of thousands, received sentences of as little as five years imprisonment.

If there were true justice in the world, Germany would no longer exist as a separate country, but would have long ago had its territory divided up and dispersed among the Allies. It was an unfortunate historical coincidence that the Cold War began just as Germany was at last being brought to task for its many crimes and atrocities extending back to the First World War. The new threat of the Soviet Union took precedence over a just settling of accounts with Germany. The tragic result is that many of the countries raped and despoiled by Germany, such as the Czech Republic and Poland, are just now coming out of decades of economic decline, while Germany--fat, sassy, arrogant, self-satisfied, and essentially Judenfrei--has enjoyed four decades of undeserved economic prosperity.

We can't turn back the clock to redress all of the historical wrongs that have been committed by the Germans, but there are a number of things that can be done to assure that Germany can never again be in a position to threaten the rest of the civilized world. First and foremost is the realization that, while not all Germans are anti-Semitic, there is an anti-Semitic tendency within German culture that extends back to the time of Martin Luther. Germans are instinctively anti-Semitic in the same way that Americans are instinctively freedom loving. Anti-Semitism has been and unfortunately remains the default ideology of the German people. All things being equal, Germans will instinctively support the enemies of the State of Israel. Therefore, America will need to monitor closely and be ready and politically willing to intervene at a moment's notice in German affairs when it appears that Germany is back-sliding into anti-Semitism.

Additionally, it should be a goal of American foreign policy to oppose and to accelerate the dismemberment of the European Union. We must not allow German domination of the EU to accomplish through parliamentary maneuvering and brokered deals what Hitler and the Germans were unable to accomplish during the Third Reich. Given Germany's resurgent anti-Semitism (and that of France as well), a strong, German-dominated EU that tolerates and even benignly encourages anti-Semitism and is diplomatically allied with the Arab world, is potentially the greatest threat to Judaism since Nazi Germany and a major threat to the United States as well. The enemies of Israel are the enemies of the United States. Let all Jews and Americans stand united as we proclaim never again to both the Holocaust and 9/11.

American detained in Jerusalem's Russian Compound

It seems like just yesterday, it's that fresh in my mind. Thankfully, God has used this horrible experience to further raise awareness of the plight of the Temple Mount suffering under Nazi-Muslim occupation, the daily religious discrimination against Jews and Christians upon the Temple Mount where they're illegally forbidden to pray or read the Bible, increasing calls by many for this deplorable situation to change.

American Detained in Jerusalem's Russian Compound

Nobody arrested me. I was DETAINED when I faithfully reported to the police office at 9 a.m. Monday morning, January 9, 1996 (day before my birthday) the day after The Jerusalem Post published on their front page an article shedding light on what they were doing in the dark.

After my initial interrogation of six and one half hours, the Thursday before, I reported, as demanded, to the police station Friday morning, Saturday morning, Sunday morning, and then Monday morning the fellow who had actually been nice to me, he said his name was Moshe, was ordered to serve me a deportation order. He expected me to sign it and, APPALLED, I purposely dropped the accursed paper from my hands and let it fall to the floor where it belonged! I refused to sign it.

They put me in that dungeon called the Russian Compound, built hundreds of years ago by the Turks, and which has since been toured by Israeli parliament members saying it should be torn down! I was in a cell made for ten and at one time we had twenty one people in it, with mats lying all over the floor and bed bugs crushed on the walls and everyone but me (by the grace of God) had welts on them from their bites!

We had one "bathroom" for all of us in that cell: it was a literal hole in the floor, and the shower pipe (no showerhead) was just over that hole, and a filthy sink, and everyone had to practically beg for toilet paper. I was there for over two weeks before my unjust deportation, after being brought before the Jerusalem magistrate (who refused to release me, being represented by famous Israeli lawyer Naftali Warzberger), and later before Israel's High Court who agreed there was no reason I shouldn't have been set free, that there was no risk of flight, but now they were just going to deport me since my citizenship request was denied.

The Temple Mount Faithful paid for all my legal expenses, recognizing the whole ordeal was politico-religious persecution against all of us, yet the Leftists targeted little ol' me!

Is it a crime to have an abiding love for Israel? To believe what's written in the Law and the Prophets concerning the Temple and our responsibility to construct it? To mourn that it hasn't been done yet? As the Jerusalem Talmud states: "every generation in which the Temple has not been built is as if the Temple were destroyed in it...." Isn't Israel's state emblem a gold menorah in between two gold olive branches?

Must I remain in exile, banished from the Land I love, because my hope, prayer, and dream is for Israel to fulfill what that symbol represents: the Temple and Israel's destiny to become a Light to all nations?

The following is written by one of our British brethren, Stephen Spykerman. Other than myself, sad to say, he's the only Church of God member I've ever seen express in writing any heartfelt interest in "the cities of Judah." Is God now directing more hearts to focus on Jerusalem? I sincerely hope and pray so!

Dear Friends,

It is just over ten months since I last wrote to you all, and it certainly has been a most eventful time for our family. To start with we did not move permanently to Israel as planned because our heavenly Abba showed us through a whole set of incredible circumstances that it was not the right time for us to go. Although He did not say ‘never’ it was just a ‘not yet’ type of answer. Instead we ended up moving to Shaftesbury in Dorset. Our new address is: The Coach House 2 Woodmans Court Shaftesbury Dorset SP7 8PY Tel 0044 (0)1747 853131.

Shaftesbury is an ancient Saxon hilltop town, which was once the royal seat of King Alfred the Great. Our new house is in fact the gatehouse to 12 other properties at the rear. These 12 houses can only be accessed through our archway, and we rather like the association it congers up with the 12 tribes of Israel.

Just a few days ago I received a memo from Steve Collins a good friend and fellow author on the tribes of Israel. He asked how things were faring with my work, and he kindly offered to link his new website with mine. This forced me to write to him to explain that I don’t have my own website as yet, although it is in the planning stage. At the same time I let him know that my manuscript has not yet been published, and I felt I owed him an explanation as to why it has not happened. The fact is that most authors in our field self publish their material usually from their own resources, and thus the question is, why have I not done the same thing?

When I first started to write, I made a covenant with my Father in Heaven that He would provide the funds to publish the work on the grounds that it was His work and not mine to bring the tribes of Israel back to the Land of promise. Ever since I have been bound by that covenant, and it surely has been a severe test of faith for me, especially so, because all my life up to that time I had always done pretty well everything in my own strength. Thus eight years ago I used this covenant as a way to bind myself to doing things His way and not the way of my old man.

Nevertheless, Father has given me a few minor successes along the way, in that I was especially commissioned to write a booklet specifically addressed to the leaders of Great Britain. The booklet was to contain a message about Britain's Israelite ancestry and calling as a nation, as well as to warn her about the folly of her involvement in the European Union. Some 5,000 glossy beautifully illustrated booklets were printed, of which some 1,750 were placed in the hands of every Member of the House of Lords and the House of Commons in the British Parliament. The individually addressed envelopes containing the booklets were delivered by hand into parliamentary mailrooms on the Eve of Hanukkah 2004. The irony of this date is that the message about the hidden ancestry of the British people were delivered to Parliament exactly 87 years to the very day from the date of the liberation of Jerusalem on the Eve of Hanukkah in 1917, when General Allenby led his British and Anzac's troops into the Holy City.

A further God-incident was that the inside man in the House of Lords who helped facilitate all of this was a descendant of this same general e.g. Lord Michael Allenby of Megiddo, whom I had befriended in previous years. It is a clear sign that our loving Father likes to use righteous families down the generations.

The booklet with its accompanying letter was also sent to Her Majesty the Queen, Prince Phillip and Prince Charles, as well as to the Archbishop of Canterbury, and many other Bishops and religious leaders up and down the country. As the message went to the leaders of the nation it had to be a work executed in high quality paper with full colour illustrations on every page, plus a most attractive cover. The booklet was called "GREAT BRITAIN Her Calling and Hidden Ancestry." It obviously cost quite a lot of money to do this, as the booklets were literally given away. Hundreds of copies were mailed to influential people outside the immediate parliamentary circle. The miracle is that all of this did not cost me a single cent, as everything was paid for by a most generous sponsor sent from above. I can honestly say that it greatly encouraged me at the time, and it strengthened my faith in the covenant I had made with my loving Father in heaven.

Then last year I was asked to write a similar booklet to be directed at the leaders of America. The idea being that we repeat the same exercise by getting the message of America's hidden ancestry to the Members of both the Houses of Congress and the Senate, as well to the President, his Cabinet, White House Staff, and the Members of the fifty State Legislatures in the United States. Once again the funds were provided for the graphic design, and within the space of three months a magnificent lavishly illustrated booklet was ready for print, under the title of: "WHO ARE YOU AMERICA? Time to Lift your Prophetic veil!" The only problem was that we only had enough money left over to print just one hundred copies. Hence for the past eighteen months I have been using those master copies as a most precious form of seed corn, and have handed them out most sparingly.

One thing I do know is that President George W Bush has been given at least one copy, possibly two. On a visit to Jerusalem last year I just so happened by another God incident to meet two people who just happened to have a close relative work at senior level in the White House. One of those was a prayer partner of the president who regularly participated in the presidential prayer breakfast. They each offered to get one of my booklets onto the Presidents desk. However, to date Abba has not seen fit to open the doors into America for this specially designed booklet containing His message about the Israelite heritage of the American people. My earnest hope is that day will come soon, as by now I have barely 20 booklets left.

Having studied the lives of the prophets in the Bible, I noted that they invariably addressed their prophetic messages, exhortations, and warnings to the leaders of the nation, be it Israel, Judah, or both. The plain fact is that Our Heavenly Creator always held the leaders of His nation Israel primarily responsible for the conduct of His people. We know from the Scriptures that YHVH does not change, as the Word says; He is the same yesterday, today and tomorrow. For this reason I feel it is important that we follow the same principle and pattern today.

This is not to say that I would dare call myself a prophet, as I would not presume to equate myself with those great men. Nevertheless this does not mean that we cannot learn from those prophets, as I believe in going to the leaders of their nations in their day, they set an important example for us to follow in our time. For this reason I believe that the message of our extraordinary Israelite heritage must first of all go to the leaders of our nations. Following on from this principle it occurred to me last year that our message about the whereabouts of the Lost Ten Tribes of Israel should also go to the leaders of Judah in the State of Israel. In fact there are a number of Orthodox friends; including several influential Rabbi's who have earnestly urged me to have the "WHO ARE YOU AMERICA? Booklet translated into Hebrew. They would like to see it placed in the hands of all Members of the Knesset, and Rabbi's in Israel, thus covering both secular and religious leadership of the nation. Now I think we have quite a precedent here! They are inviting me, a believer in Messiah Yeshua, to do this thing. Surely, this is unprecedented!

Getting our message to the leaders of Judah does have tremendous appeal, and it does also resonate somewhat with the Word which states that, 'the Word of the LORD shall go forth from Zion!' The question in my mind is; does this WORD GOING FORTH FROM ZION INCLUDE HIS PROPHETIC WORD TO THE TRIBES OF ISRAEL? The Bible appears to answer with a big YES! After all, it is the Jews who have preserved the Scriptures for us, and it is fair to say therefore that all the Scriptures have come to us from Zion. Clearly the Torah, the Prophets, the Writings, yes, and even the New Testament all came to us from Zion! Did not our beloved Saviour, Yeshua the Messiah of Israel, the King of the Jews, also not commission and send out His disciples from Zion with His Gospel of the Kingdom? Did His Apostles also not take His Kingdom Gospel message from Zion to the uttermost parts of the world?

In getting our message about the identity and whereabouts of Judah's lost prodigal Israelite brothers to the leadership of Judah we may well be unlocking the key of David, which will finally enable the call to the Tribes of Israel to go forth from Zion.

That call is for the Tribes to recognize their Israelite origins and return to the Land of their Fathers Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. I strongly feel that Judah, hard pressed as she is, by murderous enemies on all sides needs to know who and where her long lost Israelite brothers are. I believe that once the message has broken in Judah it will flow from Zion into our lands.

Judah is the key to the tribes coming back to Israel, as the Jewish State at the moment does not permit non Jews to settle in the land. At the moment Christians, who want to settle in Israel can do so only with a three month visa. Many thousands of dedicated believers have lived in the land for many years, whilst having to leave the country every three months, only to re-enter the land on a new three months permit. If the State of Israel could be made aware that these Christians are in fact Ephraimites, true descendants of Jacob from the Lost House of Israel, it may be willing to change the entry rules for those of us who want to return to the Land of our Fathers. In fact some of my rabbinical friends have already set up a small Orthodox pressure group to try to influence certain members of the Knesset in the Israeli government to make entry for the true friends of Israel a lot easier. They are attempting to persuade the Israeli government to relax the entry rules by granting Christian Ephraimites five year residential permits.

If this were to happen, according to some estimates, well over a 100,000 American Ephraimites would immediately commence their arrangements to emigrate to Israel, with many more from other Israelite nations joining them. They would come not like impoverished refugees, as they would bring all their not inconsiderable wealth with them to make a new home in the Land of their Patriarchal Fathers. What starts as a trickle is bound to soon become a flood, and thus before our very eyes we would witness the fulfillment of all those prophesies concerning the return of Ephraim e.g. the House of Israel in preparation of the ultimate reunification of the two sticks/trees of Judah and Joseph. (Ezekiel 37: 19-28 & Zechariah 10:6-8).

Frankly, you don't have to be a prophet to realize that another Arab-Israel war in the Middle East is now absolutely inevitable. The next war is described in great detail in Psalm 83 where David prophesies: "They have taken crafty counsel against Your people, and consulted together against Your sheltered ones. They have said, "Come let us cut them off from being a nation, that the name of Israel may be remembered no more." For they have consulted together with one consent; They form a confederacy against You!" (Psalm 83:3-5).

Since the foundation of the State of Israel this prophecy has already been fulfilled on three occasions, respectively in the 1948 War of Independence, the Six Day War of 1967, and the 1973 Yom Kippur War. Each time with Divine help Israel has emerged victorious, even though in the 1973 Yom Kippur War it was a very close run thing for the new nation.

Yet, when you read the account in the Book of Amos in chapter one you will note that when those same conspirators attack Israel for the FOURTH time YHVH will not turn away His punishment and His awesome wrath will utterly astonish the whole world. Amos chapter two makes it clear that both the nation of Judah and the nation of Israel will be punished at the same time. I believe in the case of Judah this will mean massive Jewish casualties, especially in the Tel Aviv/Haifa coastal areas. In the case of the House of Israel the Bible indicates massive economic fall-out from this now imminent Fourth Arab-Israel War.

This war clearly is now at the door and we also need to realize that it almost certainly will go nuclear! I believe 2007 is going to see the war described in Isaiah 17, which, with prophetic certainty states that; "Damascus shall become a ruinous heap!" Can we even begin to imagine what the effects will be when Judah, with her back against the wall facing certain defeat, is forced to use her nuclear weapons against Damascus in order to prevent total annihilation? I believe that YHVH has a fourfold purpose with this next war.

1st. To humble His people by administering correction to Judah. (Amos 2:4-5).

2nd. To bring to pass the first phase of His awesome judgments upon Islam, and the enemies of His people.

3rd. To bring to pass the second phase of His eternal covenant with Abraham in which He promised all the land between the Nile and the Euphrates to his descendants. This is outlined by the prophet Isaiah as follows: "To enlarge the place of Israel's tent, and to stretch out the curtains of your dwellings; do not spare; lengthen your chords, and strengthen your stakes. For you shall expand to the right and to the left, and your descendants will inherit the nations, and make the desolate cities inhabited." (Isaiah 34:2-3).

4th. As the State of Israel, in direct consequence of this war, annexes all of Southern Lebanon, nearly 90% of Syria, plus Gaza and all of the West Bank, and maybe a piece of Jordan to boot, she will be at least partially fulfilling the Divine plan to make room for the progressive return and settlement of her prodigal brothers of the House of Israel.

What a time this will be! What promise we have in the year that lies ahead of us! When we see it all happening before us on our T.V. screens, those of us who are looking to the establishment of His Kingdom, can then truly exclaim, WE LIVE IN THE DAWN OF THE AGE OF MESSIAH!!!!

Yet, understanding all of this we cannot just sit there and wait for it all to happen. Now is the time for the watchman and the intercessor to arise and be counted as never before. For some of us it is also a time of action. Those of us who have had our eyes opened to understand these things do need to get our message about the whereabouts and identity of Joseph to the leaders of Judah before the war occurs. It will be a huge comfort to her to know that her tribal brothers have been found and that they are a hugely powerful people. My problem is that I am only a one man band, and I cannot do this job without help and the necessary resources. I do recognize of course that Abba, the Holy One of Israel, is my helper and the provider of all my needs, yet I also realize that invariably He uses ordinary people like you and me to accomplish His purpose.

In January last year I went to Jerusalem with the express purpose of getting our booklet translated into Hebrew. I had been given to understand that there were at least three suitable people who might be able to do the translation. Soon after my arrival I discovered that the first two individuals had fallen away. This left me with one individual well known to me, and I had the personal recommendation of his Rabbi to boot. Some friends of mine however expressed doubts about his ability. My mistake was that I did not consult Abba about this objection, but decided that I would have him sign a contract containing certain safeguards. As it turned out, when I had his test paper checked it proved unsatisfactory. Sadly his work was simply not fit for purpose, as we are planning to send our material to the top echelons of Israeli society, nothing but a work of excellence will suffice. I had learned a painful lesson.

This past year the work has simply lain dormant, and I felt I was treading water. Nevertheless, I felt a great peace about it as I realized it was just not quite the right timing in Father’s purpose.

All of sudden in the last few months a new urgency has arisen, and once again we are set to visit Israel on the 15th January for a ten day trip together with my wife Virginia. Although the primary purpose for the trip is to participate in a 'Sanctification' course in close proximity to the Palestinian territories, I sense that there is another reason why our presence is required, and I am led to expect Divine appointments whilst we are in the land. I have a sense that maybe this time around the correct translator will present himself to me on this trip. It will surely be a milestone for this work, and my prayer is that you pray our visit maybe crowned with success. Another important thing we want to do next year is to set up a brand-new website probably utilizing our existing domain of, as we wish the call to go out to the Tribes of Israel from the Holy City urging them to return to Zion. (Jeremiah 31:6).

Wishing you many blessings in Yeshua our soon coming Messiah,

P.S. Can you think of a better way to bless Israel than to let the Jewish people know who and where their Lost Israelite brothers are? Our work relies on His providence which is invariably expressed through His people. You feel the Holy Spirit (Ruach haKodesh) is leading you to support the work of Mount Ephraim Publishing you can simply send a contribution to the above address.
