Today, liberal media-stream and most of the Western Governments accuse Israel for occupation of the innocent Palestinians in the last 50 years and ask, crying, to divide the Israel in two separated states. But, what means Palestine? An Arabic, Islamic nation without borders (how everyone trying to make us believe)…….?
Right, the State of Israel regained officially sovereignty in 1948, by declaring independence!!….but how and from whom???
Through occupation of Palestine or from British Empire?
It’s time for journalist and government officials around the world who have forgotten (or never knew) to remember that in 1922, the British Empire established the State of Palestine, (see the above FLAG!!!, with white and blue with David’s Star), THE NATIONAL HOME FOR THE JEWISH PEOPLE, and in the interests of the Jewish population to develop self-governing institution.
The Article 6 of “The Palestine Mandate” signed in London on 24th July 1922 stated: “The Administration of Palestine, while ensuring that the rights and position of other sections of the population are not prejudiced, shall facilitate Jewish immigration under suitable conditions and shall encourage, in co-operation with the Jewish agency referred to in Article 4, close settlement by Jews on the land, including State lands and waste lands not required for public purposes.”
How it come to lie that Jews would occupied Palestine in 1948, when the territory was taken from Turkish Empire and given to the Jewish people since 1922???
In 1948 State of Israel declared Independence from British Empire and in the same time, renounced to the name imposed from 135 AD by Emperor Hadrian of Rome, which mocking the Jews, changed the name of “Provincia Judea” in “Provincia Syria Palaestina”.
The Truth????? Israel never occupied Palestine because Israel is Palestine!!!
The Questions: who are modern Palestine, who is behind this name and which is their hidden agenda???
The Answers:……God will respond at Armageddon!!!
“Some guy who has only been a senator for a short time, some guy without any real executive experience, some guy whose biggest qualification is he went to Harvard Law School, some guy with a foreign name and mixed ethnic background, some guy who has questions about his birth certificate, have you heard this guy’s running for president? Isn’t that crazy?”…..
“Everything about Barack Obama that they said qualified him they are saying disqualifies Ted Cruz.”
Pro-Choice OR Pro-Life ???
THE REALITY WE LIVE…….
A 100 gram bar of dark chocolate with 70-85% cocoa contains:
- 11 grams of fiber.
- 67% of the daily value (RDA) for Iron.
- 58% of the RDA for Magnesium.
- 89% of the RDA for Copper.
- 98% of the RDA for Manganese.
- ….and has plenty of potassium, phosphorus, zinc and selenium.
- 600 calories
- Amounts of sugar differ from manufacturer but is very moderate.
- Dark chocolate can be considered for heart-healthy antioxidants, controlling the appetite, promoting digestive health and protecting against diabetes.
…..otherwise, you will assist helplessly how your children will be taken away outside the bounds of the law by so called “state-sponsored kidnapping”!!!
GOOD FOR YOU TO KNOW:
1). …..once the children are taken into State custody, they become an asset to the State. What this means: …….the State collect federal funds AND the longer a child remains in State custody, the more funds that state can collect.
2). …..when children became an asset to the State, doctors are free to legally experiment on these children and include them in drug trials, without having to obtain the parents’ permission.
THIS IS WHAT YOU WISH FOR YOUR CHILDREN???
WAKE UP!!!!! Grab the Constitution and the Bill of Rights (forget the handbook about how to make money or fashions catalogue) and LEARN your Rights written by our founders fathers!!!!
“……most Americans have lost their way in understanding important liberties that so many have sacrificed their lives to defend. Until we decide to stand up for these rights that are written into the Constitution of the United States of America, don’t expect much to change. Many brave men and women have given up their very lives to protect these rights, and we should not give them up so easily.”

CONGRATULATION TO MY FRIEND, PASTOR, EVANGELIST FRANK SHELTON!!!!!
IT’S OFFICIAL!! The Lord opened the door for my sermons to start airing every week on SKY ANGEL TV to 14 Million homes beginning April 27, 2014. I’ll be coming on right before Joyce Meyer along with Dr. Charles Stanley, Rod Parsley, Michael Youseff, Joseph Prince and others!
So grateful to God and my friends at Sky Angel for the chance to share The Word to more of the world. My dear friends at Tabernacle Church of Praise in Calhoun, GA sacrificially helped make this possible. They are selfless saints! Thanks to many of you on FB and churches across the country whom I’ve met for your encouragement, prayers and support to also make this a reality.
When I was 10 years old the Lord used me to bring 22 FRIENDS to Vacation Bible School in one week in 1982 at a country church in MD. Three years later, my godmother and I shared the Gospel in Hollywood, CA with Sylvester Stallone. Then we shared with FAMOUS. In 2012, I was honored to serve as a chaplain and tapped Evangelism Chairman of Olympics outreach in London, England and was blessed to share the Gospel with the FINEST athletes in the world. For past four years, it’s been an honor on multiple times to be a religion contributor on FOX NEWS in their Capitol Hill, Dallas TX & New York City studios and now God graciously paved the way to speak weekly to a FEW more on the Dish Network.
Since childhood, I knew regardless of homeless to Hollywood everyone needs Jesus! Please pray for God’s peace and continued provision and protection as we step out “BY FAITH.” That is the name of the television show because without faith it is impossible to please God.
Please pray for boldness, clarity, humility and wisdom as we point people far from God to a personal relationship with the Living Lord. Half the episodes will be clips of me preaching across the Country and also interviewing some friends from the road.
When I left Capitol Hill “by faith” seven years ago I walked away from salary, benefits, retirement and Job security. Ironically I didn’t have a single booking when I left but God said GO and I was GONE. My friend Tony Nolan told me the day I left my job, “Frank when God guides – He provides.” The first three Sunday’s not a single church invited me to preach and you could hear crickets. However, I did my best to by pass the crickets and concentrate on Christ. My buddy, John Gray now on staff as Assoc Pastor of Lakewood Church says, “You work on your Obedience and God will bring the Audience.”
Thank you all and I cannot express enough gratitude to my wife, parents, family and many friends who were and are wind to my sails. This is God’s doing. Praise the Lord and to God be the Glory – great things He hath done. Please keep us in your prayers and you forever are in mine. Go God!
Watch Evangelist Frank Shelton preaching during the London Olympics, where he was “2012 Olympic Games International Evangelism Chairman”:
“I bring near my righteousness; it shall not be far off, and my salvation shall not tarry: and I will place salvation in Zion for Israel my glory.” Isaiah 46:13 (KJV)
The Israeli cabinet approved a $46 million plan to finance the arrival of thousands of Jewish people expected to immigrate from Europe, following a number of anti-Semitic attacks on the continent in recent months.
Under Israeli law, Jewish immigrants to Israel are entitled to financial support. The multi-million-dollar package approved Sunday will finance the arrival of what the government estimates will be thousands of Jews from Ukraine, France, and Belgium.
“We say to Jews, to our brothers and sisters: Israel is your home. We are calling for the absorption of mass immigration from Europe” posted Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on his tweeter.
8 March…..many countries around the world celebrates today “International Women’s Day”.
When I came 24 years ago in USA, I found that here we celebrate Mother’s Day and not Women’s Day.
I tried then to see the difference between a Mother and a Woman.
I got help reading Ezekiel 16:38: “And I will judge you as women who commit adultery and shed blood are judged, and bring upon you the blood of wrath and jealousy.”…..if God will judges “women and not mothers”, means MOTHER is more than gender, is a TITLE!
Mother is the person who Gives life to a child.
Mother is the person who Gives HER life to the raising of a child. A person who willingly accepts the Burdens, Responsibilities, heart breaks, and Joys of raising a child.
Mother is the person who takes commitment to hard work of life, worry, and the giving of one’s self for the good of the child.
Mother shares a child’s joys, worries, fears, successes, and disappointments.
Often Mother has to give up parts of her own dreams, needs, wants for the welfare of the child she is raising. She does this out of love for the child. Our Lord, Savior, and God, Has Told us: “No Greater Love Has A person than to lay down Their life for That of Another.”
“The Woman”, according to Ezekiel, doesn’t have any of this. “The Woman” is not a Girl (unmarried) and “the Woman” is not a Wife (married without children)….”the Woman” is a person which willingly kills and the Bible call them “shed of blood”!!!
That is the reason why in the last 24 years I don’t celebrate anymore Women’s day but with full of Joy, I celebrate Mother’s Day!!!
With the sorrow I found this days about one Woman, even being Pastor’s wife, who actively participate for killing of unborn children. When she was asked about this practice, with arrogance she hits back at critics: When You Become Sin Free … Call Me Back!
READ ABOUT THIS INCREDIBLE STORY:
“……A Baptist preacher’s wife in Alabama who works at a local abortion clinic hit back at her critics Monday, declaring that those who criticize women who work at abortion facilities should first address the sins in their own lives before criticizing what women do with their own bodies.
She explained that if anyone wants to know how her husband feels about her work “you’ll have to talk to him,” but was quick to declare that he has no objections to her work.”
“……We are commanded to protect LIFE, considering we are made in HIS image. Your blatant disregard for the full canon of scripture is disgraceful. Your husband needs to have his ordination rescinded for allowing this. YOU do not support all women, just your own pitiful evil agenda. How you can show your face at your church with your matching lamp shade hat and dress is beyond comprehension. You do not represent women in ministry, in fact you are an embarrassment to each and every one of us who actually does His work. My dear Mrs. Chatman – you are not a Christian. And one has to wonder what you all are preaching in your ‘church’ to afford that Mercedes? Throwing the unborn out in the trash to preach a prosperity Gospel is BEYOND EVIL.”
“……For instance, there were sins that required the death penalty and there were sins that only required restitution. Some sins have a far greater impact upon men and society than others. So, no, all sins are not equal. They all are a violation of God’s Law, but they vary in degree and in punishment.
All of this became controversial when Chatman dropped off his wife for work and it was caught on video. David Day, who posted the video on February 26, 2015 wrote, “Sadly, this is a Montgomery pastor dropping off his wife who works at the abortuary here in Montgomery. We have spoken to her often and the only response we get is that God forgives and we are not to judge. Her husband is the pastor of New Elam Baptist Church. Her son works here as well as the security.”
Bathroom Bill vs Voting Bill…..
Florida’s “bathroom bill” would require transgender people to prove legal gender before entry in any public restroom and makes it a first-degree misdemeanor if a person born male purposefully enters a women’s room, and a person born female goes into a men’s room.
The bill was introduced last month by Frank Artiles and passed Wednesday under HB 583.
THAT’S FINE AND NORMAL TO BE SO…….
My Question: WHEN, WHERE AND BY WHOM WILL BE INTRODUCED A BILL TO REQUIRE EVERYONE TO SHOW A LEGAL ID BEFORE VOTING?????
There’s a great deal of responsibility to the kingdom as a missionary for Christ. (iStock photo)
ARTICLE BE J. Lee Grady, posted on Charisma Magazine on March 4th, 2015
One of the greatest joys in my life is ministering in foreign countries. Since I surrendered to a call to missions 15 years ago, I’ve visited 29 nations and developed relationships with dozens of pastors and leaders who now consider me their friend and brother. Missions is at the heart of our Christian faith, and I believe every church should be actively engaged in both foreign and local missions so we can advance the gospel of Jesus in our generation.
But just like everything else in life, there’s a right way and a wrong way to engage in mission work. I’ve learned from my own mistakes—and I’ve also seen some sad examples of short-term missions gone awry. If you are considering a short-term or long-term mission trip, avoid these pitfalls:
1. Acting like a spoiled American. If you are traveling to a developing country, here is Rule No. 1: Prepare for delays, cold showers, big bugs and scorpions, power outages, unusual toilets, crazy traffic and strange food. Make a decision before you leave that you won’t let one complaint come out of your mouth. Be flexible and gracious. Focus on the positive, soak in the beauty of the country and come home with a renewed gratitude for your blessings at home.
2. Talking down to people. You are not going overseas to teach poor, ignorant foreigners what you know. If that’s your attitude, do everyone a favor and stay home! You are going to serve. Most of what I know about ministry I learned from humble people I met in other countries. Whether you are teaching, preaching, building orphanages or feeding the poor, get under the people and wash their feet. And expect to learn powerful lessons from the people you are visiting.
3. Building relationships based on money. People in poor countries tend to think all Americans are rich, and they will be tempted to look to us instead of God to provide. Don’t wave money around, don’t flaunt expensive watches or jewelry, and don’t hand out cash to everyone you meet. Let your new friends know you want a real friendship with them that does not hinge on finances.
4. Making demands. I know prosperity preachers who expect royal treatment when they go to foreign countries. One man told his host he needed a hotel that costs $1,000 a night—in a nation where most people live in cramped, Soviet-style apartments. The apostle Paul modeled a different approach, and he was willing to live among people at their level (see 1 Thess. 2:9-10). If Jesus was willing to enter this world in a filthy manger, we should be willing to set aside our expensive tastes.
5. Breaking promises. When you connect deeply with a local pastor or congregation overseas, you will fall in love with them and you will want to do everything possible to help them. But don’t promise things you can’t deliver. Always remind them, and yourself, that we must pray for His provision and wait on Him to answer. And if you do enter into a partnership, always honor the promises you made.
6. Taking team members who are not committed to Jesus. I know of a zealous young woman who went on a mission trip to Africa with her church and ended up sleeping with a guy from that country. How does that happen? Anyone who goes with you on a trip needs a background check and a pastor’s recommendation. Mission trips should never be viewed as opportunities for “religious tourism” by immature people who crave a globetrotting adventure. The behavior of your team members should honor Christ.
7. Working with people overseas without thoroughly investigating them. I get requests almost weekly from foreign pastors who want me to visit their church, support their programs or do evangelistic crusades in their villages. In Pakistan, some unscrupulous Christians troll the Internet looking for churches that will send them money. Some people posing as pastors talk naïve Americans into wiring funds for a trip—and then they vanish. If you are going to do mission work, you will need the gift of discernment. Don’t get bamboozled by a con artist posing as “beloved brother Najib.”
8. Using a “hit and run” approach to missions. When I visit a country I almost always end up going back because I build relationships with ministries. This week I’m on my fourth visit to Barranquilla, Colombia, where I am helping to develop a women’s shelter. Mission work should be a long-term partnership. If your church is planning to start a mission program, don’t just scatter your seed here and there. Prayerfully invest in a few places and let the Holy Spirit connect you with those people for a lifetime.
9. Misrepresenting your work. We laugh about the preacher who was “evangelastically speaking” about the crowds he attracted in Uganda. But exaggeration is lying. There is nothing more obnoxious than a Christian who inflates statistics to draw attention or raise funds. If you build your ministry on half-truths you will have cracks in your foundation. Be honest, be accountable and tell the truth.
10. Focusing on numbers. There is huge pressure in missionary work to prove our effectiveness by counting heads. But God’s kingdom is not about crowds—it is about making disciples (see Matt. 28:19-20). Some of my most powerful moments on the mission field were in small meetings where God changed a few lives forever—and then those people changed more lives. I’m not impressed when someone says 5,000 people prayed to receive Jesus. I want to know if those converts were followed-up and plugged into churches for discipleship.
I hope you will become more passionate about taking the message of Christ to the world. But as you pack your bags for your mission trip, leave your unneeded “baggage” at home and go with a humble, teachable heart.
My friends, I’m deeply humbled by the opportunity to speak for a third time before the most important legislative body in the world, the U.S. Congress.
I want to thank you all for being here today. I know that my speech has been the subject of much controversy. I deeply regret that some perceive my being here as political. That was never my intention.
I want to thank you, Democrats and Republicans, for your common support for Israel, year after year, decade after decade.
I know that no matter on which side of the aisle you sit, you stand with Israel.
The remarkable alliance between Israel and the United States has always been above politics. It must always remain above politics.
Because America and Israel, we share a common destiny, the destiny of promised lands that cherish freedom and offer hope. Israel is grateful for the support of American — of America’s people and of America’s presidents, from Harry Truman to Barack Obama.
We appreciate all that President Obama has done for Israel.
Now, some of that is widely known.
Some of that is widely known, like strengthening security cooperation and intelligence sharing, opposing anti-Israel resolutions at the U.N.
Some of what the president has done for Israel is less well- known.
I called him in 2010 when we had the Carmel forest fire, and he immediately agreed to respond to my request for urgent aid.
In 2011, we had our embassy in Cairo under siege, and again, he provided vital assistance at the crucial moment.
Or his support for more missile interceptors during our operation last summer when we took on Hamas terrorists.
In each of those moments, I called the president, and he was there.
And some of what the president has done for Israel might never be known, because it touches on some of the most sensitive and strategic issues that arise between an American president and an Israeli prime minister.
But I know it, and I will always be grateful to President Obama for that support.
And Israel is grateful to you, the American Congress, for your support, for supporting us in so many ways, especially in generous military assistance and missile defense, including Iron Dome.
Last summer, millions of Israelis were protected from thousands of Hamas rockets because this capital dome helped build our Iron Dome.
Thank you, America. Thank you for everything you’ve done for Israel.
My friends, I’ve come here today because, as prime minister of Israel, I feel a profound obligation to speak to you about an issue that could well threaten the survival of my country and the future of my people: Iran’s quest for nuclear weapons.
We’re an ancient people. In our nearly 4,000 years of history, many have tried repeatedly to destroy the Jewish people. Tomorrow night, on the Jewish holiday of Purim, we’ll read the Book of Esther. We’ll read of a powerful Persian viceroy named Haman, who plotted to destroy the Jewish people some 2,500 years ago. But a courageous Jewish woman, Queen Esther, exposed the plot and gave for the Jewish people the right to defend themselves against their enemies.
The plot was foiled. Our people were saved.
Today the Jewish people face another attempt by yet another Persian potentate to destroy us. Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khamenei spews the oldest hatred, the oldest hatred of anti-Semitism with the newest technology. He tweets that Israel must be annihilated — he tweets. You know, in Iran, there isn’t exactly free Internet. But he tweets in English that Israel must be destroyed.
For those who believe that Iran threatens the Jewish state, but not the Jewish people, listen to Hassan Nasrallah, the leader of Hezbollah, Iran’s chief terrorist proxy. He said: If all the Jews gather in Israel, it will save us the trouble of chasing them down around the world.
But Iran’s regime is not merely a Jewish problem, any more than the Nazi regime was merely a Jewish problem. The 6 million Jews murdered by the Nazis were but a fraction of the 60 million people killed in World War II. So, too, Iran’s regime poses a grave threat, not only to Israel, but also the peace of the entire world. To understand just how dangerous Iran would be with nuclear weapons, we must fully understand the nature of the regime.
The people of Iran are very talented people. They’re heirs to one of the world’s great civilizations. But in 1979, they were hijacked by religious zealots — religious zealots who imposed on them immediately a dark and brutal dictatorship.
That year, the zealots drafted a constitution, a new one for Iran. It directed the revolutionary guards not only to protect Iran’s borders, but also to fulfill the ideological mission of jihad. The regime’s founder, Ayatollah Khomeini, exhorted his followers to “export the revolution throughout the world.”
I’m standing here in Washington, D.C. and the difference is so stark. America’s founding document promises life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Iran’s founding document pledges death, tyranny, and the pursuit of jihad. And as states are collapsing across the Middle East, Iran is charging into the void to do just that.
Iran’s goons in Gaza, its lackeys in Lebanon, its revolutionary guards on the Golan Heights are clutching Israel with three tentacles of terror. Backed by Iran, Assad is slaughtering Syrians. Back by Iran, Shiite militias are rampaging through Iraq. Back by Iran, Houthis are seizing control of Yemen, threatening the strategic straits at the mouth of the Red Sea. Along with the Straits of Hormuz, that would give Iran a second choke-point on the world’s oil supply.
Just last week, near Hormuz, Iran carried out a military exercise blowing up a mock U.S. aircraft carrier. That’s just last week, while they’re having nuclear talks with the United States. But unfortunately, for the last 36 years, Iran’s attacks against the United States have been anything but mock. And the targets have been all too real.
Iran took dozens of Americans hostage in Tehran, murdered hundreds of American soldiers, Marines, in Beirut, and was responsible for killing and maiming thousands of American service men and women in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Beyond the Middle East, Iran attacks America and its allies through its global terror network. It blew up the Jewish community center and the Israeli embassy in Buenos Aires. It helped Al Qaida bomb U.S. embassies in Africa. It even attempted to assassinate the Saudi ambassador, right here in Washington, D.C.
In the Middle East, Iran now dominates four Arab capitals, Baghdad, Damascus, Beirut and Sanaa. And if Iran’s aggression is left unchecked, more will surely follow.
So, at a time when many hope that Iran will join the community of nations, Iran is busy gobbling up the nations.
We must all stand together to stop Iran’s march of conquest, subjugation and terror.
Now, two years ago, we were told to give President Rouhani and Foreign Minister Zarif a chance to bring change and moderation to Iran. Some change! Some moderation!
Rouhani’s government hangs gays, persecutes Christians, jails journalists and executes even more prisoners than before.
Last year, the same Zarif who charms Western diplomats laid a wreath at the grave of Imad Mughniyeh. Imad Mughniyeh is the terrorist mastermind who spilled more American blood than any other terrorist besides Osama bin Laden. I’d like to see someone ask him a question about that.
Iran’s regime is as radical as ever, its cries of “Death to America,” that same America that it calls the “Great Satan,” as loud as ever.
Now, this shouldn’t be surprising, because the ideology of Iran’s revolutionary regime is deeply rooted in militant Islam, and that’s why this regime will always be an enemy of America.
Don’t be fooled. The battle between Iran and ISIS doesn’t turn Iran into a friend of America.
Iran and ISIS are competing for the crown of militant Islam. One calls itself the Islamic Republic. The other calls itself the Islamic State. Both want to impose a militant Islamic empire first on the region and then on the entire world. They just disagree among themselves who will be the ruler of that empire.
In this deadly game of thrones, there’s no place for America or for Israel, no peace for Christians, Jews or Muslims who don’t share the Islamist medieval creed, no rights for women, no freedom for anyone.
So when it comes to Iran and ISIS, the enemy of your enemy is your enemy.
The difference is that ISIS is armed with butcher knives, captured weapons and YouTube, whereas Iran could soon be armed with intercontinental ballistic missiles and nuclear bombs. We must always remember — I’ll say it one more time — the greatest dangers facing our world is the marriage of militant Islam with nuclear weapons. To defeat ISIS and let Iran get nuclear weapons would be to win the battle, but lose the war. We can’t let that happen.
But that, my friends, is exactly what could happen, if the deal now being negotiated is accepted by Iran. That deal will not prevent Iran from developing nuclear weapons. It would all but guarantee that Iran gets those weapons, lots of them.
Let me explain why. While the final deal has not yet been signed, certain elements of any potential deal are now a matter of public record. You don’t need intelligence agencies and secret information to know this. You can Google it.
Absent a dramatic change, we know for sure that any deal with Iran will include two major concessions to Iran.
The first major concession would leave Iran with a vast nuclear infrastructure, providing it with a short break-out time to the bomb. Break-out time is the time it takes to amass enough weapons-grade uranium or plutonium for a nuclear bomb.
According to the deal, not a single nuclear facility would be demolished. Thousands of centrifuges used to enrich uranium would be left spinning. Thousands more would be temporarily disconnected, but not destroyed.
Because Iran’s nuclear program would be left largely intact, Iran’s break-out time would be very short — about a year by U.S. assessment, even shorter by Israel’s.
And if — if Iran’s work on advanced centrifuges, faster and faster centrifuges, is not stopped, that break-out time could still be shorter, a lot shorter.
True, certain restrictions would be imposed on Iran’s nuclear program and Iran’s adherence to those restrictions would be supervised by international inspectors. But here’s the problem. You see, inspectors document violations; they don’t stop them.
Inspectors knew when North Korea broke to the bomb, but that didn’t stop anything. North Korea turned off the cameras, kicked out the inspectors. Within a few years, it got the bomb.
Now, we’re warned that within five years North Korea could have an arsenal of 100 nuclear bombs.
Like North Korea, Iran, too, has defied international inspectors. It’s done that on at least three separate occasions —2005, 2006, 2010. Like North Korea, Iran broke the locks, shut off the cameras.
Now, I know this is not gonna come a shock — as a shock to any of you, but Iran not only defies inspectors, it also plays a pretty good game of hide-and-cheat with them.
The U.N.’s nuclear watchdog agency, the IAEA, said again yesterday that Iran still refuses to come clean about its military nuclear program. Iran was also caught — caught twice, not once, twice — operating secret nuclear facilities in Natanz and Qom, facilities that inspectors didn’t even know existed.
Right now, Iran could be hiding nuclear facilities that we don’t know about, the U.S. and Israel. As the former head of inspections for the IAEA said in 2013, he said, “If there’s no undeclared installation today in Iran, it will be the first time in 20 years that it doesn’t have one.” Iran has proven time and again that it cannot be trusted. And that’s why the first major concession is a source of great concern. It leaves Iran with a vast nuclear infrastructure and relies on inspectors to prevent a breakout. That concession creates a real danger that Iran could get to the bomb by violating the deal.
But the second major concession creates an even greater danger that Iran could get to the bomb by keeping the deal. Because virtually all the restrictions on Iran’s nuclear program will automatically expire in about a decade.
Now, a decade may seem like a long time in political life, but it’s the blink of an eye in the life of a nation. It’s a blink of an eye in the life of our children. We all have a responsibility to consider what will happen when Iran’s nuclear capabilities are virtually unrestricted and all the sanctions will have been lifted. Iran would then be free to build a huge nuclear capacity that could product many, many nuclear bombs.
Iran’s Supreme Leader says that openly. He says, Iran plans to have 190,000 centrifuges, not 6,000 or even the 19,000 that Iran has today, but 10 times that amount — 190,000 centrifuges enriching uranium. With this massive capacity, Iran could make the fuel for an entire nuclear arsenal and this in a matter of weeks, once it makes that decision.
My long-time friend, John Kerry, Secretary of State, confirmed last week that Iran could legitimately possess that massive centrifuge capacity when the deal expires.
Now I want you to think about that. The foremost sponsor of global terrorism could be weeks away from having enough enriched uranium for an entire arsenal of nuclear weapons and this with full international legitimacy.
And by the way, if Iran’s Intercontinental Ballistic Missile program is not part of the deal, and so far, Iran refuses to even put it on the negotiating table. Well, Iran could have the means to deliver that nuclear arsenal to the far-reach corners of the earth, including to every part of the United States.
So you see, my friends, this deal has two major concessions: one, leaving Iran with a vast nuclear program and two, lifting the restrictions on that program in about a decade. That’s why this deal is so bad. It doesn’t block Iran’s path to the bomb; it paves Iran’s path to the bomb.
So why would anyone make this deal? Because they hope that Iran will change for the better in the coming years, or they believe that the alternative to this deal is worse?
Well, I disagree. I don’t believe that Iran’s radical regime will change for the better after this deal. This regime has been in power for 36 years, and its voracious appetite for aggression grows with each passing year. This deal would wet appetite — would only wet Iran’s appetite for more.
Would Iran be less aggressive when sanctions are removed and its economy is stronger? If Iran is gobbling up four countries right now while it’s under sanctions, how many more countries will Iran devour when sanctions are lifted? Would Iran fund less terrorism when it has mountains of cash with which to fund more terrorism?
Why should Iran’s radical regime change for the better when it can enjoy the best of both world’s: aggression abroad, prosperity at home?
This is a question that everyone asks in our region. Israel’s neighbors — Iran’s neighbors know that Iran will become even more aggressive and sponsor even more terrorism when its economy is unshackled and it’s been given a clear path to the bomb.
And many of these neighbors say they’ll respond by racing to get nuclear weapons of their own. So this deal won’t change Iran for the better; it will only change the Middle East for the worse.A deal that’s supposed to prevent nuclear proliferation would instead spark a nuclear arms race in the most dangerous part of the planet.
This deal won’t be a farewell to arms. It would be a farewell to arms control. And the Middle East would soon be crisscrossed by nuclear tripwires. A region where small skirmishes can trigger big wars would turn into a nuclear tinderbox.
If anyone thinks — if anyone thinks this deal kicks the can down the road, think again. When we get down that road, we’ll face a much more dangerous Iran, a Middle East littered with nuclear bombs and a countdown to a potential nuclear nightmare.
Ladies and gentlemen, I’ve come here today to tell you we don’t have to bet the security of the world on the hope that Iran will change for the better. We don’t have to gamble with our future and with our children’s future.
We can insist that restrictions on Iran’s nuclear program not be lifted for as long as Iran continues its aggression in the region and in the world.
Before lifting those restrictions, the world should demand that Iran do three things. First, stop its aggression against its neighbors in the Middle East. Second…
Second, stop supporting terrorism around the world.
And third, stop threatening to annihilate my country, Israel, the one and only Jewish state.
If the world powers are not prepared to insist that Iran change its behavior before a deal is signed, at the very least they should insist that Iran change its behavior before a deal expires.
If Iran changes its behavior, the restrictions would be lifted. If Iran doesn’t change its behavior, the restrictions should not be lifted.
If Iran wants to be treated like a normal country, let it act like a normal country.
My friends, what about the argument that there’s no alternative to this deal, that Iran’s nuclear know-how cannot be erased, that its nuclear program is so advanced that the best we can do is delay the inevitable, which is essentially what the proposed deal seeks to do?
Well, nuclear know-how without nuclear infrastructure doesn’t get you very much. A racecar driver without a car can’t drive. A pilot without a plan can’t fly. Without thousands of centrifuges, tons of enriched uranium or heavy water facilities, Iran can’t make nuclear weapons.
Iran’s nuclear program can be rolled back well-beyond the current proposal by insisting on a better deal and keeping up the pressure on a very vulnerable regime, especially given the recent collapse in the price of oil.
Now, if Iran threatens to walk away from the table — and this often happens in a Persian bazaar — call their bluff. They’ll be back, because they need the deal a lot more than you do.
And by maintaining the pressure on Iran and on those who do business with Iran, you have the power to make them need it even more.
My friends, for over a year, we’ve been told that no deal is better than a bad deal. Well, this is a bad deal. It’s a very bad deal. We’re better off without it.
Now we’re being told that the only alternative to this bad deal is war. That’s just not true.
The alternative to this bad deal is a much better deal.
A better deal that doesn’t leave Iran with a vast nuclear infrastructure and such a short break-out time. A better deal that keeps the restrictions on Iran’s nuclear program in place until Iran’s aggression ends.
A better deal that won’t give Iran an easy path to the bomb. A better deal that Israel and its neighbors may not like, but with which we could live, literally. And no country, no country has a greater stake — no country has a greater stake than Israel in a good deal that peacefully removes this threat.
Ladies and gentlemen, history has placed us at a fateful crossroads. We must now choose between two paths. One path leads to a bad deal that will at best curtail Iran’s nuclear ambitions for a while, but it will inexorably lead to a nuclear-armed Iran whose unbridled aggression will inevitably lead to war.
The second path, however difficult, could lead to a much better deal, that would prevent a nuclear-armed Iran, a nuclearized Middle East and the horrific consequences of both to all of humanity.
You don’t have to read Robert Frostto know. You have to live life to know that the difficult path is usually the one less traveled, but it will make all the difference for the future of my country, the security of the Middle East and the peace of the world, the peace, we all desire.
My friend, standing up to Iran is not easy. Standing up to dark and murderous regimes never is. With us today is Holocaust survivor and Nobel Prize winner Elie Wiesel.
Elie, your life and work inspires to give meaning to the words, “never again.”
And I wish I could promise you, Elie, that the lessons of history have been learned. I can only urge the leaders of the world not to repeat the mistakes of the past.
Not to sacrifice the future for the present; not to ignore aggression in the hopes of gaining an illusory peace.
But I can guarantee you this, the days when the Jewish people remained passive in the face of genocidal enemies, those days are over.
We are no longer scattered among the nations, powerless to defend ourselves. We restored our sovereignty in our ancient home. And the soldiers who defend our home have boundless courage. For the first time in 100 generations, we, the Jewish people, can defend ourselves.
This is why — this is why, as a prime minister of Israel, I can promise you one more thing: Even if Israel has to stand alone, Israel will stand.
But I know that Israel does not stand alone. I know that America stands with Israel.
I know that you stand with Israel.
You stand with Israel, because you know that the story of Israel is not only the story of the Jewish people but of the human spirit that refuses again and again to succumb to history’s horrors.
Facing me right up there in the gallery, overlooking all of us in this (inaudible) chamber is the image of Moses. Moses led our people from slavery to the gates of the Promised Land.
And before the people of Israel entered the land of Israel, Moses gave us a message that has steeled our resolve for thousands of years. I leave you with his message today: “Be strong and resolute, neither fear nor dread them.”
My friends, may Israel and America always stand together, strong and resolute. May we neither fear nor dread the challenges ahead. May we face the future with confidence, strength and hope.
May God bless the state of Israel and may God bless the United States of America.
Thank you. Thank you very much. Thank you all. You’re wonderful. Thank you, America. Thank you.

Psalmii 119:103 “Ce dulci sunt cuvintele Tale pentru cerul gurii mele! Mai dulci decât mierea în gura mea!”
În ziua în care credincioșii vor acționa după biblie atunci diavolul nu va mai avea putere. Rănile, durerile și suferința credincioșilor sunt reale, dar la fel de real e și faptul că nu locuiește în noi, din belșug, Cuvântul lui Dumnezeu și atunci nu biruim răul cu bine ci răspundem firesc răului.
Conflictul cu semenul este un șireltic al celui rău de a-ți abate privirea de la ceea ce contează cu adevărat: mântuirea sufletului tău.
Când oamenii te mint să nu uiți: Proverbele 12:19 “Buza care spune adevărul este întărită pe vecie, dar limba mincinoasă nu stă decât o clipă. –”
Când oamenii te părăsesc să îți amintești: Psalmii 27:10 “Căci tatăl meu şi mama mea mă părăsesc, dar Domnul mă primeşte.”
Când oamenii sunt vicleni să crezi că: Proverbele 11:3 “Neprihănirea oamenilor cinstiţi îi cârmuieşte fără teamă, dar vicleniile celor stricaţi le aduc pieirea.”
Când oamenii te folosesc tu : Matei 5:42 Celui ce-ţi cere dă-i; şi nu întoarce spatele celui ce vrea să se împrumute de la tine.
Când oamenii îți fac rău tu să spui: Geneza 50:20 “Voi, negreşit, v-aţi gândit să-mi faceţi rău: dar Dumnezeu a schimbat răul în bine, ca să împlinească ceea ce se vede azi…”
Este un timp al înarmării cu muniție sfântă pentru că războiul spiritual este în toi. Să nu fim naivi fraților: orice credincios este o prioritate pe agenda duhurilor răutății.
Cântărește-ți și evaluează caracterul și elimină orice fisură pentru ca cel rău să nu te poată folosi pe tine împotriva ta. Folosește durerea pentru a lecui durerea.
Și nu uita: cu cât e mai dulce Cuvântul Său, cu atât e mai amară lumea!
