Betrayal of Israel

Betrayal of Israel

Our nation’s betrayal of Israel began in 1990 when the Communist government of Russia decided to open its doors to allow Jews to emigrate to Israel. During the year that followed, 3,000 Russian Jews arrived each day in Israel, forcing the nation to absorb a population equivalent to the United States absorbing the entire population of France in one year’s time! Needless to say, the tiny nation of Israel was overwhelmed.

Israel’s Prime Minister, Yitzhak Shamir, applied to the World Bank for a loan of $10 billion to cope with the needs of the refugees. He was told that the loan would be granted only if the United States would guarantee it. When he then turned to the first Bush Administration, he was told that the guarantee would be supplied only if he agreed to start negotiating with the Palestinians. This resulted in the Madrid Conference in October of 1991. In short, we forced Israel to start down the suicidal path of trading land for peace.

President Clinton pursued the same policy of trying to force Israel to give up its heartland of Judea and Samaria. He almost succeeded at the Camp David Summit in July of 2000 when he pressured the most liberal Prime Minister in Israeli history, Ehud Barack, to surrender the West Bank. But Yasser Arafat wanted much more, so he walked out of the negotiations.

The second Bush Administration continued the intense pressure on Israel resulting in the so-called “Road Map to Peace” in 2002 when President George W. Bush became the first president to call for the establishment of a Palestinian state. He also engineered the disastrous Israeli pull-out from the Gaza Strip in August of 2005.

In May of this year, America’s betrayal of Israel reached a new level when President Obama called for the establishment of a Palestinian state based on the pre-1967 lines. The implementation of those lines would render Israel indefensible since it would be only 9 to 11 miles wide in the Tel Aviv area.

President Obama is begging for the wrath of God to be poured out on himself, his administration, and this nation.

I will bless those who bless you [Israel], and the one who curses you I will curse. – Genesis 12:3

I will gather all the nations, and bring them down to the valley of Jehoshaphat. Then I will enter into judgment with them there on behalf of My people and My inheritance, Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations; and they have divided up My land. – Joel 3:2

. . . he who touches you [Israel], touches the apple of His [God’s] eye. – Zechariah 2:8

Prep Time: 45 min

Inactive Prep Time: 1 min

Cook Time: 15 min

Level: Intermediate

Serves: 6 servings

Ingredients

Cake:

* 3 cups packed brown sugar

* 3/4 cup canola oil

* 3 eggs

* 2 2/3 cups flour

* 2 1/4 teaspoons baking powder

* 2 1/4 teaspoons baking soda

* 1 1/2 teaspoons salt

* 1 tablespoon vanilla extract

* 1 1/2 cups milk

* 1 1/2 cups water

* 1 1/8 cups cocoa powder

Frosting:

* 1 1/2 pounds sweet butter, soft

* 3 cups sifted powdered sugar

* 2 tablespoons vanilla extract

* 1 pinch salt

Ganache:

* 1 1/4 cups semisweet chocolate chips

* 3/4 tablespoon light corn syrup

* 3/4 cup heavy cream

Directions

To make the cake: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Oil 3 (10-inch) cake pans and line the bottom with parchment paper. Alternately, oil the pans and then flour them.

In the bowl of an electric mixer, combine the brown sugar and oil. Turn on the mixer to a low speed and mix in the eggs. Let the sugar, oil, and eggs mix while sifting together the flour, baking powder, soda, and salt in a separate bowl. Set this mixture aside.

In another small bowl, mix the vanilla into the milk and set this aside as well. Bring the water to a boil and pour over the cocoa and whisk it until it is smooth. To the egg mixture, alternately add the flour mixture and the milk mixture beginning and ending with flour. With the mixer off, scrape down the sides of the bowl after each addition. With the mixture at a low speed add the cocoa. Scrape down the sides of the bowl and pour this mixture into the prepared cake pans. Bake the cake for approximately 15 minutes or until tester comes out clean. When cake layers have cooled, remove from pans and refrigerate until cold.

To make the frosting: In an electric mixing bowl place the soft butter and beat it on a low speed while adding powdered sugar. When all the sugar is mixed in, turn off the mixer and scrape down the sides of the bowl. Add in the vanilla and salt and let the mixer beat for 5 to 7 minutes on a medium speed. Fill and frost the cake and refrigerate it for 10 to 20 minutes to set up the frosting.

To make the ganache: In a heatproof bowl, place the chocolate chips and the corn syrup. Bring the heavy cream to a full boil. Pour the cream over the chocolate and whisk it until smooth then set it aside.Pour ganache over the top of the cake and, with a cake spatula, smooth the top of the cake and allow ganache to spill over the sides. Refrigerate for 20 minutes or longer.

Serve the cake cold or allow it to come to room temperature before serving.

Antimicrobial Wipe Kleenhanz Suggested for Holiday Travel Infection Co

Antimicrobial Wipe Kleenhanz Suggested for Holiday Travel Infection Control

Posted on: Thursday, 30 June 2011, 15:48 CDT

SAN ANTONIO, June 30, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — This Fourth of July weekend will put millions of American travelers in contact with infectious agents including germs, bacteria, and viruses in high-contact areas, such as public toilets, gas pumps, and door handles. In fact, AAA estimates that 39 million Americans will travel 50 miles or more from home, by road or air this weekend. Infection control experts are on high alert. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) says that clean hands are the best defense against spreading illness and that hand sanitizing gels are limited in their effectiveness.

Several experts recommend using products that contain antimicrobials, compounds similar to antibiotics that kill or inhibit the growth of micro-organisms, for travel, as well as everyday use. Dr. James P. Chambers, Researcher and Professor of Biotechnology at the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio, has studied infectious agents for more than 30 years and suggests using a new antimicrobial wipe called Kleenhanz® when soap and water are not …

The most popular religion in the US is Judaism

The most popular religion in the US is Judaism

June 30, 2011

According to Harvard Professor Robert Putnam as revealed in his recently released book “American Grace: How Religion Divides and Unites the United States” the most popular religion in the US is not Catholicism or Mormonism, it is Judaism.

Putnam, in a previous book he published, indicated that America was losing its social capital, but that Americans were a deeply religious people, more so on average than in Iran for example. Putnam said he thinks what brought about the surprising popularity of these historically persecuted people was that the American public may have learned the lessons of the injustice wrought upon the chosen people in the past.

Jimmy’s Prophetic Prospective on the News

Though a recent survey says that in America the most popular religion is Judaism, the end times scenario that can be found in Bible prophecy contradicts those findings.

Harvard professor and author Robert Putnam has released his findings of a survey taken from among 3000 people, a cross section of America, that reveals Judaism is the most popular religion among Americans. These findings are very interesting; however, they are somewhat difficult to believe when one reads the reports of growing Antisemitism in America and around the world. Some have said that this survey may indicate that there are those who embrace Judaism because of guilt from the way that the world has traditionally persecuted the Jewish people. Whatever the reason for Judaism’s popularity in America, the future does not bode well for the Jews.

In a seven year period of time known as the Tribulation Period, the Jewish people will not be very popular and in fact will be the focus of not only persecution but an effort for the complete annihilation of the Jewish people on earth, that scenario is revealed in Revelation 14-19. In these 16 chapters, it is evident that the sources of evil, both man and angels will try to eliminate the Jews from the world, Revelation 12:13-17. Zechariah, another ancient Jewish prophet, says that two-thirds of the Jews will be killed during this same period of time, Zechariah 13:8.

Judaism may be popular today, but in the future, the Jews will be the target for destruction.

Scientist Discovers Neptune's Rotation For The First Time

Scientist Discovers Neptune’s Rotation For The First Time

Posted on: Thursday, 30 June 2011, 14:00 CDT | Related Video

A planetary scientist at the University of Arizona has determined Neptune’s rotation.

According to the first accurate measurements of the planet’s rotational period, a day on Neptune lasts about 15 hours, 57 minutes and 59 seconds.

University of Arizona planetary scientist Erich Karkoschka has discovered one of the largest improvements in determining the rotational period of a gas planet in almost 350 years since Italian astronomer Giovanni Cassini made the first observations of Jupiter’s Red Spot.

“The rotational period of a planet is one of its fundamental properties,” Karkoschka, a senior staff scientist at the UA’s Lunar and Planetary Laboratory, said in a statement. “Neptune has two features observable with the Hubble Space Telescope that seem to track the interior rotation of the planet. Nothing similar has been seen before on any of the four giant planets.”

Giant gas planets rotate more like giant blobs of liquid, unlike rocky planets, which behave like solid balls spinning in a more straightforward path. Gas planets’ rotation involves a lot of sloshing, swirling and roiling, which has made it difficult for astronomers to get an accurate idea of how fast they spin around. …..
