For when we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly.
For scarcely for a righteous man will one die: yet peradventure for a good man some would even dare to die.
But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us
(Romans 5:6-8).

Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned: (Romans 5:12).

For as by one man's disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of one shall many be made righteous (Romans 5:19).

He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God (John 3:18).

Israeli Official to U.S.: Back Egypt Army or Risk Peace Talks

An Israeli official told the Wall Street Journal (WSJ) on Monday that if the United States did not back Egypt’s army, it would negatively affect the renewed peace talks between Israel and the Palestinian Authority.

The unnamed official, who spoke to WSJ’s Middle East correspondent Charles Levinson, reportedly said that Washington must back Egypt's military or "good luck with your peace efforts between Israel and Palestinians."

Levinson explained that the comments were not made as a threat to the U.S. but were a reflection of the importance of Israel’s cooperation with the Egyptian military, as part of the peace agreement signed between the two countries in 1979.

"The Israeli position is that Saudi Arabia and Egypt have historically, and still today, have played a crucial role in supporting negotiations and giving the Palestinians the support they need to stay in negotiations,” he said.

“This officially basically said, ‘Look, if you alienate Egypt and if you lose Saudi [Arabia] - good luck seeing any progress in the peace talks,’” said Levinson.

He added that Israel depends on Egypt to maintain law and order in the restive Sinai and to crack down on terrorists operating in that region. “Israel does not want to see chaos and anarchy on its southern border,” stressed Levinson.

The United States has been sending mixed signals about Egypt ever since the military ousted Islamist President Mohammed Morsi in July.

The White House has thus far been cautious about calling the Egyptian military’s ouster of Morsi a “coup” since, under U.S. law, a country in which a military coup has taken place cannot receive military aid from the U.S.

At the same time U.S. officials have hinted that if the violence and bloodshed in Egypt continue, it may cut off its military aid to the country.

Last week, U.S. President Barack Obama said that the United States "deplores" and "strongly condemns" violence in Egypt, and as a result is canceling U.S.-Egyptian military exercises scheduled for next month. 

On Monday, U.S. Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel said that Washington was doing its best to stabilize the situation in Egypt, but admitted that there was only so much the U.S. could do.

“Our ability to influence the outcome in Egypt is limited,” Hagel said. “It's up to the Egyptian people. And they are a large, great, sovereign nation.”

State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki said on Monday that a review by the Obama administration of all U.S. aid to Egypt is currently underway and stressed that the U.S. has not yet made a decision on whether to freeze economic assistance to Egypt.

Meanwhile, the New York Times reported on Monday that Israel is mounting a diplomatic effort to assist the military-backed government in Egypt to retain U.S. and international backing.

Israel plans this week to intensify its diplomatic campaign urging Europe and the United States to support the government in Egypt, the Times wrote, quoting “a senior Israeli official involved in the effort” who spoke on the condition of anonymity.

Erdogan in Another Anti - Semitic Diatribe Against Israel Reveals His Failures

In one revealing sentence, Turkish prime minister Tayyip Erdogan undid the hard work performed by US and Israeli to gloss over his radical anti-Semitic views and the bankruptcy of his Middle East policies, in the hope of co-opting Ankara to a moderate regional lineup. This time, Erdogan went so far as to accuse Israel of orchestrating Egypt’s July 3 military coup in an address Monday, Aug. 20 to the provincial chairs of his ruling Justice and Development Party.
Ankara has evidence as to the country’s involvement in President Mohamed Morsi’s overthrow, he said. “Who is behind this? We have evidence.” But the Turkish prime minister did not reveal his “evidence” because there was none, debkafile’s military and intelligence sources note.
His purpose was to turn his party’s attention away from his failure to establish Turkish influence in any part of the Middle East, especially in Egypt, by putting the blame on Israel.
It was Israel’s fault, he insinuated, that Erdogan encountered Egyptian contempt for his bid to assume the role of leading Muslim power in the Middle East. He met this rejection even on the part of the Muslim Brotherhood during Morsi’s administration, in the year before the military coup.

Morsi rejected his overtures for close ties - not just with Cairo but also with the Palestinian Hamas ruling the Gaza Strip and his pretensions to be their champion.

Edrogan’s plans to create a Sunni Muslim bloc led by Turkey and built around the Muslim Brotherhood encountered its second setback when his only strategic partner, Qatar’s Emir Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani, abdicated two months ago after a bloodless coup.

The main motives behind his removal, with Saudi and UAE encouragement, were his close ties with Turkey and strong support for the Muslim Brotherhood movement and Hamas.
The emir was succeeded by his son Sheikh Tamim bin Khalifa Al Thani, who opposes his father’s friendly ties with the Brotherhood and Turkey.

Indeed, it should have been evident that the coup in Qatar was the precursor of the military coup in Egypt, a conclusion reached in one of DEBKA Weekly’s exclusive reports. Erdogan and the head of his MIT intelligence agency Fidan Hakan missed this connection, although the Saudis and the UAE made no bones about their drive to derail Muslim Brotherhood rule in Egypt and thwart the ambitions of its Turkish and Gulf allies.
Fearing to blame Saudi Arabia and the emirates for his ruined plans, Erdogan heaped crude falsehoods on Israel’s head as his whipping boy.
His crudest remark referred to a meeting he claimed took place in France between “an intellectual” and former Israeli justice minister before Egypt’s 2011 elections. Erdoğan, stressing that the intellectual was Jewish, quoted him as saying: “‘The Muslim Brotherhood will not be in power even if they win the elections.”
debkafile: The Turkish prime minister managed by a single anti-Semitic comment to stigmatize “Jewish intellectuals” and also leave the impression that not only had his own policies gone aground but so had the Obama administration’s plans, which relied heavily on Muslim Turkey and the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood as their keystone, and therefore invested great efforts in effecting a reconciliation between Jerusalem and Ankara. 

California Promotes Perversion
Aug 20th, 2013
Daily News
Categories: Today's Headlines;Moral Decline

It’s coming to a public school near you.

That’s because there’s something to the old saying, “What starts in California spreads across the nation.”

Have you heard about the latest way the state is peddling perversion to little schoolchildren?

A new law, passed by both houses of the legislature and signed by Gov. Jerry “Moonbeam” Brown, mandates that public school girls’ restrooms and locker rooms be open to boys who claim they are “transgendered.” Ditto for boys’ restrooms and locker rooms.

Now keep in mind “transgenderism” is a somewhat undefined “condition,” if it is an actual condition at all. Some interpret it to be those who have actually undergone sex change operations. But very few children have done that, simply because very few doctors, with the exception of a few quacks, would perform such surgery on children, who are often confused about their sexual identity. Others interpret it much more broadly. For instance, a child might just say he or she feels more like a member of the opposite sex.

Can you imagine subjecting children to this kind of sexual abuse under government mandate?

That’s what’s up in California.

If you’ve got kids in California public schools, there are many reasons to pull them out. But this one takes the cake. Don’t wait for your child to be abused. It’s only a matter of time now. Subjecting your kids to California authorities is itself a form of child abuse.

Never mind that the public school system is in shambles. Never mind that they teach all manner of left-wing propaganda. Never mind that the system is there for the benefit of teachers unions not kids and parents. All that would be bad enough. But, if you had any doubts about where California is going, besides broke, now you know. You are without excuse as a parent.

I took my kids out of California schools long ago. After living there for 20 years I finally moved out of the state because of the utter political madness that reigns supreme. Anybody in their right mind would, at this point, recognize that the state is nearly hopeless – quickly degenerating into a Third World republic with great weather and beaches.

What will it take to awaken the sleeping populace of California?

State politics is dominated by an extreme left-wing Democratic majority thanks to illegal immigration and gerrymandered political redistricting. There’s simply no way to overcome it – except to escape.

Worse yet, because what happens in California eventually spreads to the rest of the nation, the insanity is coming to a school district near you.

Believe it. Be on the alert. Be vigilant. Most Californians are not nuts like the people who control the political machinery. I know that. It doesn’t matter anymore. Because normal people with common sense don’t have a voice in California. And, too often, they don’t have a voice in the rest of America, either. That’s because they are not engaged in great moral morass that is quickly becoming California and America.

Already, in other parts of the country, there are efforts to ensure that any child for any reason can choose to use the restrooms and locker rooms of the apparent opposite sex. This is the real agenda – to create gender confusion among kids. It’s part of the homosexual political and moral agenda – one that has proven formidable in legalizing and normalizing sin and perversion with unprecedented speed.

Think back 10 years. Would you have believed same-sex marriage would be upheld at the U.S. Supreme Court? It would have been unthinkable. Even worse, who could have imagined that the majority opinion would label anyone who opposed it a bigot?

It wasn’t that long ago that California voters themselves rejected it – only to see a homosexual federal judge ram it down the throats of the majority.

Do you think I’m being overly harsh and judgmental?

Then you don’t understand what’s coming.

It’s a brave new world that is unsafe for children and other living things.
