Israel in the Cross Hairs (Again . . .)

I received the following article from the Oak Initiative ( It is more than worth reading.


We at the Oak Initiative along with Lou Sheldon (Oak Board Member) and Andrea Lafferty, Traditional Values Coalition Executive Director, would like to share the following article with you. It is important that we remain informed about the matters effecting Israel – watch this video and see the full details:

President Obama’s Marxist “Humanitarians”
Help Provoke Attack On Israeli Forces

June 4, 2010 —   CNN, MSNBC and the rest of the media have spent a lot of wattage on the “peace flotilla” which claimed to be bringing aid to people in Gaza over the objections of Israel.  Israel had stopped, at least, two ships earlier this year carrying guns and missiles to Gaza and their insistence that all ships should be inspected and searched was very reasonable.

The multi-talented Caroline Glick produced a music video “We Con the World!” on all of the lies and distortions involved in the “humanitarian” flotilla to Gaza coupled with the Israel Defense Force (IDF) footage of the terrorist peaceniks gathering weapons to use against the Israeli boarding party.

Benjamin Netanyahu and the people of Israel need to be supported by our voices and by our prayers for the brave stand they have taken in defense of free and civilized people everywhere.  Israel is surrounded by terrorists yet the rest of the world, including our own “transparent” President Obama, just watches.

Bill TAKE ACTION: Contact your U.S. Representative and two U.S. Senators and ask that they strongly support the efforts by Israel to protect themselves from Islamic terrorist activity in the Gaza Strip.
Prime Minister Netanyahu is the leader of the free world while Barack Obama is trying to decide between golf or Gulf — another round of golf or going down to the Gulf to get photographed with more oil-covered sea gulls.  Obama is morphing into bumbling Jimmy Carter every hour of every day while Netanyahu is leading and taking on the stature of Reagan and Churchill.

God bless and protect Israel and God help America during this bleak and uncertain hour.

Few reports have focused on the two organizations involved in the flotilla. They are the IHH (Foundation for Human Rights and Freedoms and Humanitarian Relief [Insani Yardim Vakfi]), billed as a “charity” group from Turkey and Free Gaza, an organization of leftist radicals who wish to foment violence against Israel.

The IHH is a front group with a history of supplying weapons to Islamic terrorist groups in the region. Even the French recognize this group as a front for terrorists.

Free Gaza was founded in 2008 to agitate for Islamists in the Gaza Strip. Involved in the founding of this were former Weather Underground domestic terrorists Bill Ayers and his wife Bernardine Dorhn, and Jodie Evans, a founder of Code Pink , an anti-military and anti-American organization. Code Pink routinely pickets military recruitment centers, barges into congressional hearings, and does whatever it can to subvert our efforts against Islamic terrorism around the world.

President Obama began his political career in the living room of Ayers and Dohrn . Ayers had been involved in the bombing of the Pentagon and a New York City police department in the 1970s during the Vietnam War. Both had gone underground for years to avoid capture for their terrorist activities.

Bill TAKE ACTION: Contact your U.S. Representative and two U.S. Senators and ask that they strongly support the efforts by Israel to protect themselves from Islamic terrorist activity in the Gaza Strip. Every nation has the inherent right to protect itself from invasion or attack by enemies.

An Important Date I Almost Missed

Today is National Doughnut Day.

Let that bit of splendid news sink in.

I didn’t realize that we have a day dedicated just to doughnuts, but now that I think about it, it is a great idea. We have been told ad nauseam that the food we eat is going to kill us. When we eat a doughnut, we have been programmed to say, “This isn’t really good for me,” even though all food is sanctified by prayer and thanksgiving for healthful use. This “death in the doughnut” approach to food is a bit of grace-stealing legalism that most Americans enjoy . . . almost as much as they enjoy doughnuts.

So, enjoy National Doughnut Day. Eat boldly and in faith, without fear for your health. Don’t eat too many, though. While I have lots of faith for benefit from the food we eat, I haven’t yet figured out how to stop doughnuts from appearing around my waist if I eat too many. I suspect you are the same way.

And since many of those reading this article will have missed the actual day of the event, I, by the power invested in me as a grace loving, faith living doughnut connoisseur, declare that tomorrow is “Second Chance National Doughnut Day” for everyone who missed today’s festivities.

Risking Much in the Gulf

The latest news out of the Gulf of Mexico is that British Petroleum is attempting a “cut and cap” procedure on the gushing oil well. This procedure is intended to cut off the damaged pipe that is spewing oil, and then capping it. Oil industry analysts have described this attempt as risky. It is risky because it will initially increase the discharge of oil by about twenty percent. It is also risky because the equipment hasn’t been used at the depths they are now working. BP issued a statement that reads in part:

“Systems such as the LMRP containment cap have never before been deployed at these depths and conditions, and their efficiency and ability to contain the oil and gas cannot be assured.”

Hmm. Let me get this straight. They are attempting a procedure that will increase the oil flow by twenty percent, and they are already making excuses for why it will not stop the oil.

I had an opportunity to speak to Bob Jones about the oil spill this past weekend. He told me that this was an extremely dangerous situation and that only God will be able to stop the oil flow (in answer to prayer). He also told me that BP could make it a lot worse as they attempt to seal the well.

What that means is that we need to pray fervently that the Father give those in charge the wisdom and skill necessary to stop this thing. If human skill cannot stop it, then we must ask for divine intervention. We also need to continue to pray for the shore lines, spawning grounds, and fisheries in harms way.

This is an environmental and economic catastrophe occurring in slow motion. We need to use our authority and pray that it stop.

Headline: Oil Stays Away from South Florida for Now

Since I am out of town, I missed this really good news in the Sun-Sentinel. The full headline reads:

Oil stays away from South Florida for now

Changes in loop current mean portion of Gulf slick no longer headed here

That is incredibly good news. When you read further into the article, you find this little tidbit:

An eddy at the top of the current has drawn away the portion of the slick that had been caught in the current. And at the south end, another eddy has pinched off the current entirely.

The loop current had two things occur to it. First, an eddy took the oil already trapped out of it. Second, the current itself has stopped (!).

So, intercessors, be encouraged and keep praying for Florida’s coastline. It is having impact.

This Hurricane Season

Well, the good news is that we have tremendous authority. The even better news is that we will have opportunity to exercise that authority this season!

Excited? Well, we should be. We are told that in the book of Daniel, that as we approach the difficulties that accompany the end of our age, “. . . the people who know their God shall be strong, and carry out great exploits” (Daniel 11:32 NKJV). It looks like we will have an opportunity to do exploits this hurricane season.

I am at the MorningStar Fellowship of Ministries conference. I am enjoying renewing many relationships, but I am also paying close attention to what the Lord is saying in this setting. Bob Jones spoke this morning. He told us that years ago the Lord had shown him a demon in the gulf that would feed on oil. He believes that the oil spill that is out there now is a fulfillment of that revelation. He also mentioned that the Lord had shown him that another demon would rise up in a hurricane to the south of the oil spill, and would become a major threat in the area.

I also met with Bob briefly, and he concurred with my assessment when I said that the Lord was showing me we would have an active season.

This is probably a great time to remind everyone that we have set the first and third Friday nights of June to pray over the hurricane season. We have been given some targets. It is time for exploits.
