Evangelical Support for I$raHell is Under Threat

“Theologically, Palestinian Christians are now claiming loudly and proudly that the Palestinians, not the Jews, are the indigenous people of the Land of Israel”

Evangelical support for Israel is under threat as a growing trend of Christians consciously turning their backs on Israel continues to increase.

To address this major concern among the Christian Zionist and Jewish community, The Committee for Accuracy in Middle East Reporting in America (CAMERA) is hosting a groundbreaking conference, entitled Get the Facts about the Assault on Christian Support for Israel,” exploring the troubling campaigns to undermine the historical and theological support for Israel among Christians.

“It is important to address threats against Evangelical support for Israel because this part of Christendom has historically been the largest and most consistent in their support of Israel’s right to exist as a Jewish State and defend itself against those who intend to annihilate it,” explained Tricia Miller, Christian Media Senior Research Analyst at CAMERA, to Breaking Israel News.

“The existential dangers facing Israel are more intense than ever. Therefore, it is more important now than it has ever been for Christians to stand with Israel.”

While major Christian Zionist organizations, such as Pastor John Hagee’s 2 million strong Christians United for Israel (CUFI) or the International Fellowship of Christians and Jews (IFCJ), the largest Evangelical Christian group supporting Israel financially, which is led by Rabbi Yechiel Eckstein, remain committed to their support of Israel, “recent trends in the Evangelical world point to a conscious turning away from Israel by some key members of this important part of Christendom,” explained Miller.

One of the major influences turning Christian Zionists into anti-Israel advocates is the “fallacious narrative promoted by Palestinian Christian leaders that is both anti-Jewish and anti-Israel.” With the emergence of a stronger and more organized politicized voice among the Palestinian Christian community, Miller stated, many American Evangelical leaders are responsible for “enabling and assisting the spread of a deceptive political agenda based on erroneous theology and have rewritten history.”

Theologically, Palestinian Christians are now claiming loudly and proudly that the Palestinians, not the Jews, are the indigenous people of the Land of Israel. “Not only does this assertion deny the prophetic significance of the regathering of the Jewish people to their Biblical homeland that is supposed to be important to Christians, but the logical conclusion of this assertion is the belief that Jesus and the first disciples were Palestinians,” Miller told Breaking Israel News.

“As a result, Biblical history – that Evangelicals have believed in traditionally – is rewritten and the Christian faith is delegitimized.”

Significant examples of this growing trend and shift in theology is the popup of organizations such as Christ at the Checkpoint and the Bethlehem Bible College. The annual conferences run by these two organizations alone are, as Miller explained, the “primary promoters of virulent anti-Jewish and anti-Israel propaganda.”

 If a picture is worth a thousand words, the Christ at the Checkpoint logo says it all. The logo depicts a church standing behind the security barrier built by Israel as a means to keep Palestinian terrorists out of Israel.

“Through their imagery and content, these conferences present a one-sided narrative that perpetuates the two millennia-old Christian doctrine that Jews are an obstacle to God’s purposes,” Miller told Breaking Israel News. “As a result, Jews are demonized, the Jewish state is delegitimized, and Christians are encouraged to accept the message in the name of peace and justice.”

The upcoming one-day CAMERA conference, which will take place in Los Angeles, CA, on January 18, has what can only be described as an all-star lineup of world renowned scholars and religious leaders committed to countering the false religious narratives and anti-Israel agenda turning away support for Israel among the Evangelical community.

Among the speakers taking part in the conference are Laurie Cardoza-Moore ThD, founder and president of Proclaiming Justice to the Nations, who will discuss the rising threat of replacement theology and the faulty theological foundation of the Palestinian Christian narrative; Rev. Gerald McDermott PhD, who will explore the historical and theological case for Christian support for Israel; Dr. Brad Young of Oral Roberts University, who will explain the Biblical reasons Christians are connected to the Jewish people and honoring Jews as the elder brother in faith; and highly esteemed Orthodox rabbi, Yitzchok Adlerstein, Director of Interfaith Affairs at theSimon Wiesenthal Center.

Saudi Zio-Wahhabi Execution of Sheikh Nimr Similar to ISIS Propaganda Videos: Independent
If Saudi Zio-Wahhabi regime  included a video of the executions of prominent Shia cleric Sheikh Nimr al-Nimr and the 46 other people they killed on Saturday, it would have nothing short of a Wahhabi Daesh (ISIS) Takfiri terrorist propaganda video. The macabre simile was uttered by the Independent’s Middle East correspondent Robert Fisk.

“All that was missing was the video of the decapitations – although the Kingdom’s 158 beheadings last year were perfectly in tune with the Wahhabi teachings of Daesh,” said Fisk.

Daesh has on multiple occasions released footage portraying elaborate mass executions of hostages.

Fisk noted that the recent flood of beheadings are “certainly an unprecedented Saudi way of welcoming in the New Year.”

Following the execution, authorities refused to hand over the cleric’s remains and buried them at an undisclosed cemetery, according to the Sheikh’s brother, Mohamed Nimr.

He said that the family intended to bury Nimr in his home town, Qatif; Press TV reported.

Sheikh Qassem: Dwindling ISIL Relies on US, ‘Israel’ & Saudi to Survive

NOVANEWS
Sheikh QassemHezbollah Deputy Secretary General Sheikh Naim Qassem told the Iranian Wefaq  newspaper that the Saudi Zio-Wahhabi ISIL’s  influence in the region is dwindling and that  the terrorist group depends on the American, Israeli and Saudi support to survive.

In a different context, Sheikh Qassem stressed that Hezbollah will certainly punish the Zionist entity for  assassinating the resistance’s officials in Syria.

His eminence added that ‘Israel’ is trying, by assassinating martyr Samir Kuntar to impose new rules of engagement in a way that Hezbollah does not respond to its crimes.

On December 19, the Israeli warplanes raided a residential building in the Syrian city of Jaramana, killing the Dean of liberated detainees from Israeli prisons, martyr Samir Kuntar.

Martyr Kuntar was detained by occupation forces in 1979, at the age of 16, for his involvement in a heroic operation against Zionists. He was released along with four other Lebanese prisoners in a 2008 swap deal with Hezbollah in exchange for the bodies of two Israeli soldiers killed during the 2006 war.

Hezbollah: Assassination of Martyr Sheikh Nimr Will Demolish Al Saud Falsehood

NOVANEWS
HezbollahHezbollah condemned on Saturday the Saudi regime’s crime of assassinating the major religious scholar Mujahid Sheikh Nimr al-Nimr, considering that baseless pretexts as well as illogical, unfair and corrupted sentences were behind that criminal act.

In a statement, Hezbollah pointed out that the real reason of assassinating Sheikh Nimr is that his eminence faced the Saudi authority’s ignorance, tyranny and oppression, by demanding it to grant the oppressed people their wasted rights and fortune.

The Saudi crime was represented by including Sheikh Nimr with a group of terrorists, who terrified the civilians, in order to mix up the righteous path of his eminence with the evil of the criminals, according to the statement.

Sheikh Nimr is a divine scholar who resisted injustice via peaceful means, and his persistence in sticking to right till martyrdom will demolish Al Saud dynasty’s falsehood, refute its claims and invalidate its malicious attempts to tarnish the image of this jihad before the Umma, the statement added.

Hezbollah maintained that this crime at the beginning of the new year is a stain of disgrace that will afflict the regime which has been committing massacres since its emergence, including the brutal carnage against thousands of pilgrims in Mina without expressing grief or sorrow for the criminal act.

The party called on the international community and the human rights organizations as well as the vital forces in the Umma to denounce the Saudi crime and to blacklist KSA in the international record of criminality for infringing a peaceful religious scholar because he rejected oppression and aggression.

Hezbollah further considered that USA is morally and directly responsible for this crime because it supports the Saudi regime and covers up its criminal acts against the region’s people although it falsely claims to hold the slogans of democracy, freedom and human rights.

Hezbollah finally offered deep condolences and congratulations to the Sheikh Nimrs’ family and brethren in the eastern region, the Arab peninsula and the entire Islamic World, pleading Holy God to grant the martyr His mercy and to immortalize his teachings and path.

Middle East leaders lash out at Saudi Arabia over Shiite cleric’s execution, protests erupt

Shiite leaders are up in arms over Saudi Arabia’s execution of prominent cleric Nimr al-Nimr on terror charges. A senior Iranian Ayatollah called it a “crime,” while Tehran’s Foreign Ministry accused Riyadh of supporting terrorists.

“The Saudi government supports terrorists and takfiri [intolerant Sunni] extremists, while executing and suppressing critics inside the country,” Foreign Ministry spokesman Hossein Jaber Ansari was quoted as saying by state news agency IRNA.

According to a lawmaker from Iraq’s ruling Shiite coalition, Saudi Arabia’s execution of al-Nimr was intended to fuel Sunni-Shiite strife and “set the region on fire.”

“This measure taken by the ruling family [of Saudi Arabia] aims at reigniting the region, provoking sectarian fighting between Sunnis and Shiites,” Mohammed al-Sayhud told al-Sumaria TV.

Prominent Iraqis have called on the government in Baghdad on Saturday to cut ties with Riyadh over Sheikh Nimr al-Nimr’s execution, al-Sumaria TV reported.

“It’s a big crime that has opened the gates of hell,” Qasim al-Araji, the head of the Badr Organization in Iraq said, calling on Baghdad to cut diplomatic ties “immediately,” according to the channel’s website.

Another Iran-backed militia group, Asaib Ahl al-Haq, has accused Saudi Arabia of seeking to provoke Sunni-Shiite strife, according to the TV’s website. “What’s the use of having a Saudi embassy in Iraq?” it reportedly said.

Al-Nimr’s death has already added fuel to the fire in the boiling sectarian tensions in the Middle East.

Police in Bahrain fired tear gas at several dozen people protesting al-Nimr’s execution and carrying pictures of the cleric in a standoff in the Shi’ite Muslim village of Abu-Saiba, west of the capital Manama, an eyewitness told Reuters.

Scores of Shiite Muslims have come out to protest in Qatif, one of the oldest settlements in eastern Saudi Arabia, against the government’s execution of al-Nimr on Saturday, Reuters reported.

The protesters reportedly chanted, “down with the Al Saud,” referring to the name of the ruling Saudi royal family. They marched from al-Nimr’s home village of al-Awamiya to the region’s main town of Qatif, the only district in Saudi Arabia where Shiites are a majority.

One of the most senior clerics in Shiite-majority Iran, Ahmad Khatami, said that al-Nimr’s execution reflected the “criminal” character of the Saudi ruling family.

“I have no doubt that this pure blood will stain the collar of the House of Saud and wipe them from the pages of history,” Khatami, a member of the Assembly of Experts, was quoted as saying by the Mehr news agency.

He added: “The crime of executing Sheikh Nimr is part of a criminal pattern by this treacherous family … the Islamic world is expected to cry out and denounce this infamous regime as much as it can.”

Kataib Hezbollah’s leader, Abu Mahdi al-Mohandes, hailed the execution of Sheikh al-Nimr as “a crime that is added to the criminal record of Al Saud,” he said, according to al-Ahd TV.

Yemen’s Houthi movement has also mourned the prominent Shiite cleric, executed on Saturday.

“The Al Saudi family executed today the holy warrior, the grand cleric Nimr Baqr al-Nimr after a mock trial … a flagrant violation of human rights,” an obituary on the Houthis’ official Al Maseera website stated.

According to Lebanon’s Supreme Islamic Shiite Council, al-Nimr’s capital punishment was a serious “mistake.”

“The execution of Sheikh Nimr was an execution of reason, moderation and dialogue,” the council’s vice president, Sheikh Abdel Amir Qabalan said in a statement.

The brother of the executed cleric said he hopes that any reaction to al-Nimr’s killing will be peaceful.

“Sheikh Nimr enjoyed high esteem in his community and within Muslim society in general and no doubt there will be reaction,” Mohammed al-Nimr told Reuters by telephone. “We hope that any reactions would be confined to a peaceful framework. No one should have any reaction outside this peaceful framework. Enough bloodshed.”

Saudi Arabia executed Sheikh Nimr al-Nimr on Saturday, along with 46 other people. Authorities said most of those executed were involved in a series of attacks carried out by Al Qaeda between 2003 and 2006. Al-Nimr, along with six others, were accused of orchestrating anti-government protests between 2011 and 2013 in which 20 people died. Earlier this year, Saudi Arabia’s Supreme Court rejected an appeal against the death sentence passed on the Shia cleric.

World Muslims Rise to Condemn Execution of Sheikh Nimr by Saudi Zio-Wahhabi regime

NOVANEWS
World Muslims Rise to Condemn Execution of Sheikh Nimr by S. Arabia
TEHRAN (FNA)- Sunni and Shiite Muslims from across the world rushed to condemn the execution of prominent Shiite cleric Sheikh Nimr Baqr al-Nimr by the Riyadh government, vowing revenge.

Saudi Arabia announced Saturday that it has executed the prominent Shiite Muslim cleric.

After the declaration, thousands of Bahraini people poured to the streets and chanted “death to the al-Saud” slogans.

The Bahrainis who also carried some placards to show their support for Sheikh Nimr warned Riyadh that shedding the cleric’s blood will not remain unanswered.

Lebanon’s Hezbollah, Yemen’s Ansarullah, Pakistan’s Shiite Assembly and tens of Sunni and Shiite figures, groups and movements across the world have rushed to condemn the Saudi regime, all underlining that Riyadh has poured oil to the flames of sectarian strife.

In Palestine, the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) in a statement condemned the killing of the prominent Muslim cleric, and said, “The execution of Sheikh Nimr al-Nimr shows that Saudi Arabia insists on pouring oil to the flames of sectarian sedition.”

Sheikh Nimr’s execution was also condemned by Head of Iraq’s Badr Organization Hadi al-Ameri who expressed deep regret after hearing the news.

The Iranian Sunni figures also showed reaction to the Saudi cleric’s killing by Saudi Arabia.

Molawi Abdolhamid Ismailzehi, the Friday prayers leader of Iran’s Southeastern city of Zahedan, expressed deep regret over Sheikh Nimr’s execution, and said under the conditions that the Muslim world needs unity, the Saudi officials should have refrained from his killing.

Also, representative of Iran’s Sunni-populated Southeastern province of Sistan and Balouchestan at the Assembly of Experts, Molawi Nazir Ahmad Salami, condemned Sheikh Nimr’s execution, and said, “There is no difference between the Shiites and Sunnis and any person who is opposed to tyranny and brutality should show reaction and deplore the Saudi measure.”

Also, Chairman of the Sunni Lawmakers’ Fraction at the Iranian parliament Abed Fattahi deplored the execution of Sheikh Nimr by Riyadh, and said the bells have now started ringing for the collapse of the Saudi regime.

He also said that Saudi Arabia’s support for the terrorists, the mismanagement of Mina incident, execution of Sheikh Nimr and several other crimes by Riyadh, “closed the door of negotiations with the political structure of Saudi Arabia”.

Their remarks came after the Iranian seminaries held a protest rally in front of the Saudi embassy in Tehran on Saturday, and condemned execution of the Shiite cleric by chanting “death to al-Saud” slogans.

The Iranian foreign ministry also strongly deplored Riyadh for killing the prominent cleric, and said the move proved the Saudi officials’ “imprudence and irresponsibility”, underlining that the Saudi regime will pay a heavy price for this crime.

“While the extremist and Takfiri terrorists have deprived the regional and world nations of security and tranquility and threaten certain regional governments’ stability and existence, execution of a figure like Sheikh Nimr who didn’t have any instrument but words to pursue his political and religious goals merely shows the depth of imprudence and irresponsibility,” Foreign Ministry Spokesman Hossein Jaber Ansari said on Saturday.

Saudi Arabia executed 47 people on Saturday for terrorism, including Sheikh Nimr, the country’s Interior Ministry said in a statement. Most of those executed were said to be involved in a series of attacks carried out by Al-Qaeda between 2003 and 2006. 45 of those executed were of Saudi nationality, one Chadian, one Egyptian.

The Interior Ministry statement announcing the executions began with verses from the Quran, justifying the use of the death penalty, while state television showed footage of the aftermath of Al-Qaeda attacks over the last decade. Shortly afterward, Saudi Grand Mufti Sheikh Abdulaziz Al al-Sheikh appeared on Saudi Arabian television, hailing the executions as just.

Al-Qaeda is the number one enemy of Shiite Muslims, and the Saudi television did not explain how it could link the footage to the execution of a Shiite leader who has been the target of ISIL and Al-Qaeda.

Iranian high-ranking officials had regularly deplored Riyadh for handing down death sentence to prominent Shiite cleric, warning that execution of the Sheikh Nimr would incur a heavy price in Saudi Arabia, and would set the stage for the fall of the Saudi regime.

Several rights activists had also warned Riyadh that execution of Sheikh Nimr would set fire to Saudi Arabia.

Heretofore, Al Saud had frequently said that it plans to execute Sheikh soon, but the kingdom delayed it every time. According to an informed source, the new King and his hawkish cabinet members mean to send a message to the Shiite community, dissidents and Iran through the move to show they are ready to pay any price in confrontation with Tehran. Though Iran has repeatedly denied any link with the Shiite dissidents in Saudi Arabia.

During the recent months, people across the world staged protest in support of Sheikh Nimr, calling for immediate release of the leader, warning the Wahhabi authorities against executing prominent Shiite cleric.

Nimr was attacked and arrested in the Qatif region of Eastern Province in July 2012, and has been charged with undermining the kingdom’s security, making anti-government speeches, and defending political prisoners. Nimr has denied the accusations.

In October 2014, a Saudi court sentenced Sheikh Nimr to death, provoking huge condemnations and criticism in the Middle East and the world.

On October 25, Nimr’s family confirmed that the Saudi Supreme Court and the Specialized Appeals Court had endorsed a death sentence issued last year against him for inciting sectarian strife and disobeying King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud. The cleric has denied the charges.

The Shiite cleric’s lawyer, Sadeq al-Jubran, had also said that Nimr could be executed as soon as the Saudi monarch approves his sentence.

Human rights organizations have condemned Saudi Arabia for failing to address the rights situation in the kingdom. They say Saudi Arabia has persistently implemented repressive policies that stifle freedom of expression, association and assembly.

ISIL Oil Trucks Cross into Turkey Every Day, Captured Terrorist Admits

ISIL Oil Trucks Cross into Turkey Every Day, Captured Terrorist Admits
A captured militant from Saudi Zio-Wahhabi ‘ISIL’ terrorist group who spoke to Sputnik news agency has bolstered claims that Turkey is involved in illegal oil deals with the jihadist group up to the hilt.

24-year-old Mahmud Ghazi Tatar says he joined Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) from the Turkish city of Adiyaman. Together with other recruits, he was transported over the border into Syria where he received terrorist training.

Having taken part in the civil war in Syria, he was captured by Kurdish forces last June and is now imprisoned.

RT obtained interview footage with the captive from Sputnik news agency. In it, the former ISIL militant reveals details about Turkey’s alleged oil links to the terror group.

“At the training camp in May 2015, our commander told us that the group sells fuel to Turkey. That income covers ISIL’s costs. The oil trucks crossing into Turkey every day carry crude oil, as well as petrol,” Tatar said, adding that the ISIL group has “enough oil to last them a long time.”

In the words of Tatar’s commander, the oil is being sold via several businessmen and traders, although their names were not disclosed.

“ISIL also receives lots of supplies from Turkey and Arab countries,” the captured militant said.

Turkey strongly denies that it has links to the terrorists.

ISIL’s black market oil trade has come under scrutiny from the international community amid turbulent oil prices, which have fallen to half their previous level in 2015.

ISIL oil trade: step by step

Crude oil extracted at Syria’s Deir ez-Zor and Iraq’s Qayyara oil fields, which remain under under ISIL control, is being sold for as little as $25 per barrel to smugglers, independent Syrian and Iraqi traders who transport oil using their own trucks.

The crude oil could also be sold to nearby refineries that produce petrol and fuel oil, or directly to the local oil market.

Yet the capacity of local buyers is limited, so smuggling oil to Turkey and other countries is more profitable.

“Turkey is playing not a very clean game, especially with smuggling the Iraqi oil and Syrian oil through the borders and selling it in the black market in Turkey,” Iraqi MP Mowaffak Al-Rubaie, a former national security adviser, told RT, adding that a recent investigation by the Norwegian authorities exposed Turkey as having ties with ISIL’s illegal oil trade.

A political science assistant professor from the Northeastern University in Boston, Max Abrahms, told RT that it is exactly the illegal oil trade that has enabled ISIL to become so strong after seizing vast territories in Iraq and Syria.

“ISIL is one of the most powerful – I would say the most powerful – terrorist group that we’ve ever seen,” Abrahms told RT, explaining that the group’s wealth fuels its ambitions.

“Over 50 percent of ISIL’s money has come, historically, from oil. Estimates are between $40 million to $50 million of profit [a month] just from oil alone,” Abrahms said.

Official: Over 8,000 ISIL Terrorists Killed in Iraq in 2015

Official: Over 8,000 ISIL Terrorists Killed in Iraq in 2015
Saudi Zio-Wahhabi ‘ISIL’ Takfiri terrorist group has lost hundreds of its terrorists in clashes with the Iraqi army and Kurdish forces or aerial bombardments last year, Iraqi officials announced.

“At least 8,000 ‘ISIL’ terrorists have been killed in clashes with army, Kurdish Peshmerga forces or Iraqi air strikes in different parts of Iraq in 2015,” Iraqi Kurdistan region’s official Saeed Mamouzini said on Saturday.

Yet, he complained that the terrorists are receiving vast aid to maintain their power.

The ISIL receives massive military, financial and logistic supports from Turkey, Qatar and Saudi Arabia.

Turkey has been attacking Kurdish militias in northern Syria and Iraq, despite Kurds being considered a key ally by Washington in the fight against the ISIL.

Tensions between Ankara and Baghdad have increased dramatically since Turkey reinforced its military deployment in Iraq with about 150 soldiers backed by artillery and around 25 tanks in a base near the ISIL-controlled northern Iraqi city of Mosul on December 4.

The Iraqi government considered this action as a hostile act in violation of its sovereignty and demanded the immediate withdrawal of Turkish troops.

On December 20, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan announced the withdrawal of military troops from Iraq to reduce tensions following international criticism. The decision to pull out troops also came after Iraq brought the issue to the United Nations Security Council. Yet, Turkey kept a part of its troops in Iraq and remains adamant to pulling them out.

In early December, member of the Iraqi parliament’s security and defense committee said that the committee would propose to the country’s government to cooperate with Russia in carrying out airstrikes against the ISIL.

“Soon, a meeting of the committee with Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi will be held, where we will propose cooperating with Russia in carrying out airstrikes against the Islamic State and in the fight against terrorism in Iraq,” Iskander Witit said.
