      Sean Osborne – Eschatology Today – April 22, 2022 at 5:46 AM

      At 04:00 Israel Time this morning the HAMAS islamic extremists began to riot and engage in violence against security forces there to keep the peace. The Islamists cried for jihad [war] against Israel. Both Jordan and the Arab League stood up and voiced direct support of the islamic jihadists objectives on Temple Mount.

      Israel’s government has vowed to maintain the status quo on Temple Mount which forbids Jewish prayer anywhere on the main mount platform.

      Clearly, it will be an overt Act of God which will restore Israel’s ability to worship, conduct services and establish the Lord’s Sancturary on the Temple Mount.

      Keep watching.

      Israeli PM Fires Back at ‘Hostile’ CNN Host: We Must ‘Act Tough’ Against Violence:

      CNN’s Christiane Amanpour was accused of “hostility” after a tense back-and-forth with Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett in which the anchor criticized the Jewish State’s response to recent violent Palestinian riots against Israeli police and Jewish worshippers, with the Israeli leader replying: “When faced with violence you have to act tough.”

      During an interview with Bennett on Wednesday, CNN anchor Christiane Amanpour appeared “hostile” toward the Israeli premiere, inquiring as to why he allowed the military to create “tension” by quelling violent riots that have taken place in and around the Al-Aqsa Mosque situated on the Temple Mount in the Israeli capital of Jerusalem.

      “When the world sees, and when Palestinians see, and when your region sees Israeli soldiers inside that mosque, it creates a lot of tension, a lot of unease,” she said before asking: “Why do you allow Israeli soldiers to go into that mosque?”

      The Israeli prime minister hit back against the charge that Israel was responsible for the “unease” by accusing Amanpour of presenting a misleading narrative.

      “Yeah, well, Christiane, there you go again starting the story in the middle,” he said. “But the actual fact is that last Friday at about five in the morning, roughly 300 Palestinian rioters entered [the] Temple Mount mosque with explosives [and] with stones.”

      “They began desecrating their own mosque; burning, throwing stones and preventing about 80,000 decent Muslims from going to pray,” he added.

      Bennett went on to explain his duty as the country’s leader, as well as the need to “act tough” in the face of violence.

      “Amanpour’s hostility, smugness and arrogance towards #Israel is just relentless,” wrote international human rights lawyer Arsen Ostrovsky. “But PM @naftalibennett did a great job here pushing back on the situation in #Jerusalem and Temple Mt.

      Israel Dumps The Dollar For China’s Renminbi:

      Over the last 48 hours, China and Russia have taken big steps toward separating themselves from the monetary policy and economies of the west – and nobody has even noticed.

      Those who have been reading my blog for the last couple of weeks know that I have been predicting that China and Russia would grow far closer economically, creating, in essence, a second global monetary system where the US dollar is no longer the reserve currency.

      This shift is happening as a result of the United States and the rest of the western economies foolishly thinking that they’re going to be able to effectively sanction Russia economically, despite the fact that Russia is a massive producer of oil and the country seems prepared to back its currency, the ruble, with this productive capacity.

      Meanwhile, back at the ranch, we continue to run enormous deficits and have very little productive capacity, and even less to back our currency with. Our destiny seems to be to continue printing money regardless of the negative consequences. We’re nothing more than printing press junkies that won’t cease our inflationary addiction until we inevitably hit rock bottom.

      First, it was little noticed yesterday when Bloomberg reported that “Israel’s central bank has made the biggest changes to its allocation of reserves in over a decade, adding the Chinese yuan alongside three other currencies to a stockpile that last year exceeded $200 billion for the first time ever.”

      The report read:  Starting this year, the currency mix will expand from the trio of the U.S. dollar, the euro and the British pound to include the Canadian and Australian dollars as well as the yen and the yuan, which is also known as the renminbi. The additions mark a change in the Bank of Israel’s “whole investment guidelines and philosophy,” Deputy Governor Andrew Abir said in an interview.

      To accommodate the changes, the euro’s share will fall to 20% — the lowest in at least a decade — from just over 30%, while the dollar will account for 61%, down from 66.5%.

      In other words, Israel is reducing its exposure to the dollar and to the Euro to add exposure to the Renminbi.

      And so perhaps isn’t just little old me here chipping away at my blog daily that has noticed that China and Russia could be on the verge of effecting meaningful change to the global monetary landscape. It sure seems like Israel is catching on.  I expect other countries to follow suit.

      Not Damascus per se, but Hezbollah and Iran sites in Qudsayya and the area around the international airport. 3rd set of IAF strikes this month in Syria.

      Targets were weapons systems being transferred to Hezbollah. Targets destroyed.

      Is the Temple Mount Becoming a Haven for the Homeless?:

      A picture of a tent city erected on the Temple Mount has gone viral on social media in Israel.

      The image, caught by Israel365 News‘ Josh Wander, shows a tent city adjacent to the Al-Aksa Mosque on the holy site. The mosque has been used as a headquarters for hundreds of Arab rioters who have attacked Israeli police since the beginning of Ramadan earlier this month.

      It appears as though the tent city is being used to house the rioters during Ramadan, giving easy access to the mosque that they have essentially transformed into a makeshift fortress.

      Earlier in April, Israel365 News reported that Arab rioters in the Al-Aksa Mosque desecrated the mosque by using it as a fortress for rioting, leaving their shoes on and playing soccer inside the structure. The video enraged many in the Arab world.

      “Allah Brought Jews to Palestine So We Could Finish Them Off” – Shocking Message from Islamist:

      Senior Islamic Jihad official, Muhammad Shalah shared a couple of days ago that the Jihad against the Jews is led by the Islamic Republic of Iran, as well as Hizbullah and Syria, Yemen, and Iraq.  He claimed to take pride that these are the same groups that stood against “criminal America” which planted Israel in Palestine.

      Muhammad Shalah claimed that Iran provided them with rockets and they were congratulated for their strikes on Tel Aviv.

      The Biden Administration Tells Israel They Have No Right To The Temple Mount And Warns That Jews Praying There Is ‘Provocative’ And Must Stop

      Biden warns Israel against ‘freedom of worship’ on Temple Mount

      FROM JEWISH NEWS SYNDICATE: The Biden administration has announced that its titular head will be visiting Israel within a few months. Biden’s last high-profile visit to the Jewish State in 2010 ended with him staging a diplomatic incident and refusing to leave his hotel room for an hour to attend an event with Benjamin Netanyahu. The Israelis have little reason to be optimistic about this Biden expedition.

      After Muslim rioters disrupted Passover by engaging in violence at the Temple Mount, the holiest site in Judaism, the administration urged “all sides to exercise restraint, avoid provocative actions and rhetoric and preserve the historic status quo on the Haram al-Sharif/Temple Mount.” The “provocation action” in this case is Jewish prayer.

      It’s 2022 and the White House is warning Jews that their prayers are “provocative.”
      The “historic status quo” Biden demands that Jews comply with exists only because Muslim conquest deprived non-Muslim minorities, especially Jews, of the right to pray at their holy sites. That’s like telling black people riding in the back of buses in Alabama to accept the “historic status quo,” or urging Ukraine to accept a “historic status quo” in which it is ruled by Moscow.

      Or suggesting that Washington, D.C., should take orders from Queen Elizabeth.
      Behind the scenes, the Biden administration and its officials have been warning the Israeli government to stop talking about “freedom of worship” and defer to Islamic supremacism. As one reporter described, “cognizant of how talk of ‘freedom of worship’ can be interpreted, US officials have sought to push Israel to avoid using the phrase and instead focus solely on affirming their commitment to the status quo at Jerusalem’s holy sites.”

      Freedom of worship doesn’t require any interpretation. But here it means that the Israelis allow Muslims to control the Temple Mount despite the fact that they illegally seized the site during the brutal invasion and ethnic cleansing of Israel, and that occasionally Jews are also allowed to enter the holiest site in Judaism and visit it—not to pray publicly, but merely to set foot on it. Imagine if Islamic invaders had seized the Vatican, turned St. Peter’s Basilica into a mosque, and after the reconquest, the Italian government let the Muslims keep the Basilica, but occasionally allowed a handful of Catholics to visit it, without praying, only to be met with riots. And with international condemnation of the “provocative” action of allowing non-Muslim visitors.

      That’s the situation in Jerusalem, and what Biden is saying is that it doesn’t go far enough.

      In Istanbul, the end of Islamist rule meant the transformation of the Hagia Sophia into the neutral status of a museum, until Recep Tayyip Erdoğan’s brutal Islamist regime decided to begin reverting it back to a mosque. Neutrality on the Temple Mount is not even on the table. Israel is not demanding the return of the Temple Mount. All it’s saying is that everyone should be able to go there. Not just the descendants of the invaders and colonizers who now rule over it.

      Jewish visitors to the Temple Mount are not allowed to pray there. That privilege is reserved for the Islamic colonists who control it. No Jewish prayer books may be brought to the site and no one non-Muslim may pray out loud there. In a recent expansion of “religious freedom,” a judge ruled that a Jewish man had the religious freedom to pray quietly there, as long as there was no outward sign of it.  Read More

      On Israel’s Independence Day:  Lawmaker calls to build 3rd Temple 

      Israel365news.com

      By David Sidman    May 5, 2022

      2D40AFA2-99F8-478F-81D2-80EE641642A0

      On Thursday, Knesset Member Itamar Ben-Gvir (Jewish Power) entered the Temple Mount on Israel’s 74th Independence Day. During his visit, Ben-Gvir said: “The time has come to build a Jewish synagogue on the Temple Mount.”

      Building the Third Temple is a commandment incumbent upon the Jewish people as written in the Book of Exodus:

      And let them make Me a sanctuary that I may dwell among them (Exodus 25:8)
      Before ascending the Mount, Ben Gvir emphasized the importance of visiting the Temple Mount, writing: “Jews ascending the Temple Mount today proves that Hamas is an organization of pushovers that will easily surrender. On Israel’s 74th Independence Day, it’s important that government officials remember that we are an independent nation.”

      Israel has prevented any effort to build a Temple on the Holy site for fear of Arab backlash. Instead, the Jewish pilgrims visiting the mount are forced to settle for silent prayer, an act recently allowed by the police stationed there.

      Ben Gvir was among the more controversial MKs causing a storm when he decided to move his headquarters to the Arab-occupied Jerusalem neighborhood of Shimon Hatzadik.

      Ben Gvir called for full Israeli control over the holy site in the past. In his opening speech in the Knesset, Ben Gvir lamented the hesitancy of the Israeli government to assert full sovereignty over Jerusalem and, more specifically, the Temple Mount saying: “I will act to ensure that Israeli control returns to Jerusalem and to the Temple Mount specifically.”

      In 2019, Ben-Gvir and his Otzma Yehudit party came out in support of building the Third Temple in an exclusiveinterview with Israel365 News. However, this was the first time he publicly declared on top of the Temple Mount.

      The Biden administration had asked Israel not to advance the plans, given its stiff opposition to any Israeli settlement construction.

      Jordan Deploys 50 Additional Wakf Guards to Challenge Control of Temple Mount:

      On Sunday, Public Security Minister Bar-Lev and the police announced that the number of Waqf guards at the site will be increased by 50. In return, Barlev reportedly demanded that Waqf employees who support Hamas be removed from the compound.

      This seems to contradict a statement made by the Prime Minister’s Office on Tuesday:

      “There is no change of new development in the situation on the Temple Mount. Israeli sovereignty has been maintained,” the PMO stated. “All decisions about the Temple Mount will be made taking into consideration sovereignty, freedom of religion and security, and not through pressure from foreign or political factors.”

      The Waqf also weighed in, contradicting the Prime Minister’s office as well as Bar-Lev.  “… the sole responsibility and authority for the appointment of guards and employees is reserved for the Waqf.”

      Israel Hayom reported that Jordan submitted a letter to the Biden administration, demanding that the Waqf be given total control over the Temple Mount. They would institute a dress code for non-Muslims and limit visitors to groups no larger than five people. Non-Muslims wishing to visit the site would need to apply in writing in advance and, if approved, would be restricted to tour routes of no more than 500 feet. Jordan is also demanding that the Israel Police no longer be allowed on the Temple Mount, even if rioters attack Jewish worshippers at the Western Wall or visitors to the site itself.

      Similarly, Wasserman Lande sees special importance in bringing French leadership and newly reelected French President Emmanuel Macron into the Abraham Accords process.

      President Macron has a strong and friendly relationship with Foreign Minister Yair Lapid and with others in Israel’s leadership,” she said. “I do believe it would be beneficial for him to be involved in strengthening the Abraham Accords. ;-)  After all, it’s an interest we all share. It is actually one of the rare issues that Israel’s coalition and opposition see eye-to-eye on.”

      Turning a watchman’s gaze to Syria… again.

      This past Friday the IAF repeatedly struck an underground bunker and tunnel complex is the vicinity of Masyaf, Hama Province, Syria. This facility struck was constructed after previous IAF strikes destroyed similar structures in this area.

      These strike completely obliterated the newly constructed bunker and tunnel complex. Initial reports are of several dead and many wounded in the Friday strikes. The dead and wounded are presumed to be Syrian, Iranian and Lebanese Hezbollah. A Pantsir air defense system and its crew which were targeting IAF assets was also annihilated.

      The assessment is that retaliation is a certainty. Watching…
