Zechariah 14:12, "And this shall be the plague with which the LORD will strike all the people who fought against Jerusalem: Their flesh shall dissolve while they stand on their feet, Their eyes shall dissolve in their sockets, And their tongues shall dissolve in their mouths..."
I stumbled upon this article (excerpted then linked at the bottom of my own commentary) this morning, and I think it is interesting in light of where we are in the peace process right now. The presidential position in Israel is mostly ceremonial in nature but here are a couple of incidentals about the presidency that are relevant in light of where we are on the prophetic time clock today:
- The current length term for presidency in Israel is seven years, limit of service is one term.
- Shimon Peres took office in July 2007
- which means that his presidency will end in July of 2014
- most significantly, it is the president of Israel, not the Prime Minister, who signs the treaties, once they are approved by the Knesset!
- Peres is the 9th president of Israel (the scriptural number of judgment!)
- Peres served as Prime Minister twice, and interim Prime Minister once
- Peres is an honorary member of Knight Grand Cross of the Order of St. Michael and St. George, of the Order of the Red Cross of Constantine (2008 appointment) This honor surpasses the degree Grand Master, and the Knight Order or the York Rite. The original Knights Templar was a “Christian” Military Order during the Crusades. The Red Cross Order is associated in Freemasonry, with the rebuilding of the temple after the Israelites returned from Babylonian captivity. This “honor” is awarded for exemplary service in a non-military capacity in a foreign country.
- Peres was born in Poland as Simon Perski
- As an Israeli Foreign Minister, Simon Peres signed the original Oslo Accords, the framework for implementing a peace agreement between Israel and Palestine, and the date of the signing was 9/13/1993?
Interesting, that date has two 9s in it and two 13s. Again, 9 is judgment, and is doubled *double portion) in the date, thirteen also doubled, is associated in the Bible with rebellion, AND particularly GOVERNMENTS IN REBELLION AGAINST GOD! Jericho was destroyed after the armies encompassed it about six days (one time around) and the seven times on the seventh day, for a total of 13. There are thirteen things that DEFILE A MAN in Mark 7: 20-23. In Romans 1 the number 13 is associated with HATING GOD as in Paul’s list of immoral practices of men when God gives man over to, a reprobate mind, the thirteenth one in that list is, Hating God.
The deadline for the peace deal between Israel and Palestine has been set for September of 2014!
The number 14 is associated with Christ in that there are three sets of 14 generations in the Bible in His lineage, between Abraham and Joseph. That would also connect the number to the Jewish Nation, as Abraham is the father of the Jewish nation as well as forefather of Jesus Himself.
The number 14 is associated with the Fear of the Lord. In Proverbs the phrase “the fear of the Lord” occurs 14 times.
The number 14 also represents deliverance and salvation and is found 14 times in scripture: Passover is the 14th day of the first month, the same day and month when God made His covenant promises to Abraham, and also the fourteenth day of the first month in 30 A.D. is the day Jesus died on the cross and fulfilled the Passover.
As you may know, Benjamin Netanyahu visited the Pope in Rome on December 2. What you may not know is that in Spring of 2014, the Pope is scheduled to visit Israel. This visit will mark the 50-year anniversary of Pope Paul the VI before the Vatican recognized Israel as a State. Francis has been there before, although not as pope. He arrived as the Yom Kippur War was breaking out.
When Netanyahu visited the Pope at the Vatican on the 2nd of this month, he presented the Pope with a book written by Netanyahu’s father: Here is the summary as given on Amazon:
The Spanish Inquisition remains a fearful symbol of state terror. Its principal target was the conversos, descendants of Spanish Jews who had been forced to convert to Christianity some three generations earlier. Since thousands of them confessed to charges of practicing Judaism in secret, historians have long understood the Inquisition as an attempt to suppress the Jews of Spain
Bibi’s inscription in the book:
‘To his Holiness Pope Franciscus, a great shepherd of our common heritage”
As for the pope’s sentiments on the occasion: The pope expressed his hopes for a lasting peace this time around, according to this article in The Times of Israel.
Of course the blood moon tetrads are due to occur on the Feast of Tabernacles in 2014, and on the Passover in 2015.
Did you know that the intent of the Spanish Inquisition was to maintain Catholic Orthodoxy in the kingdom of Ferdinand and Isabella and replaced the previous Papal control under the Medieval Inquisition. This regulation of the practice of religion increased greatly by decree in 1492 with the Spanish Expulsion. Jews and Muslims were forced to convert, or leave, and many of the Jews who stayed, once converted-even if under coercion-found it easier to remain in the Catholic religion, because it freed them from the rigorous demands of Judaism and even allowed them to move into high-ranking leadership positions in government and the church itself. Louis De Santangel and Gabriel were two such Jews who converted from Judaism, and happen to have been bankers. They also happen to have financed Christopher Columbus’ voyage! Freemasonry was one of many activities that were suppressed during the Spanish Inquisition, along with Witchcraft, sodomy, blasphemy, and Bigamy. Here is a passage which Columbus wrote in his journal:
In the same month in which their Majesties [Ferdinand and Isabella] issued the edict that all Jews should be driven out of the kingdom and its territories, in the same month they gave me the order to undertake with sufficient men my expedition of discovery to the Indies.”
This chart (below) shows each of the tetrads and what occurred just before, during, and/or after them. The site which it is pulled from is not one which I endorse, but it is a good visual for placing all of these events before your eyes in a single glance. Having said that I don’t endorse the website (name is on the image), a lot of people are having dreams and visions about the destruction of America these days. I don’t know where they are coming from, but I do not give credence to extra-biblical revelation. I have shared things at times on this blog as an item of interest, the value of it is in knowing the hour we live in. In this time so fraught with spiritual confusion, I have decided not to link to those sorts of things, because so often, any given individual reading a post here, might read only that one post, and get the wrong impression.
As you read the linked article below, and now that the negotiations about Iran, Syria, and the Peace Agreement are at the forefront and even in the news, you cannot help but know that the days of the Age of Grace are coming to a close. If you are unsaved, today is the day, you cannot afford to wait. For those who are longing for the appearing of our Lord Jesus as King, the time is drawing very near. Which can only mean our deliverance is even nearer.
Personally, to me it seems the spring of 2014 could be a convergence-point when likely the last of the last “chess moves” of these last days will commence. This could well be the last Christmas for us. It is awesome to me, to sit here in my little corner of the world where I blog to you guys, looking at my Christmas tree, and contemplating my Blessed Hope. He came as a tiny helpless baby that time. Next time He will come in Power and Glory!
Thy Kingdom come, Lord!
The late J.R. Church (Prophecy in the News) had this to say about these events:
“Four Lunar eclipses occurring on Feast of Tabernacles and Yom Kippur in two successive years (2014 and 2015) are [sic] phenomenal! But add to them two solar eclipses, on the two days that open the Jewish New Year –Adar 29/Nisan 1, just two weeks before Passover, and Tishri (Rosh Hashanah)–is uncanny! On each one of these six Jewish Holy Days, The sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give her light. Will this happen again in the 21st century? No!”
Article: Israel News: Welcome to Jerusalem Mein Pope
Welcome to Jerusalem Mein Pope
by Barry Chamish
Twelve years ago, I wrote the following famous edict:
Barry Chamish: Vatican plot against ISRAEL 1997
In March 1994, the newspaper Chadashot revealed a most remarkable secret of the Middle East “peace” process. A friend of Shimon Peres, the French intellectual Marek Halter, claimed in an interview that in May 1993 he delivered a letter from Peres to the pope. Within, Peres promised to internationalize Jerusalem, granting the UN political control of the Old City of Jerusalem, and granting the Vatican hegemony over the holy sites within. The UN would give the PLO a capital within its new territory, and East Jerusalem would become a kind of free-trade zone of world diplomacy.
Halter’s claim was backed by the Italian newspaper La Stampa, which added that Arafat was apprised of the agreement and that it was included in the secret clauses of the Declaration Of Principles signed in Washington in September 1993.
It has been over 70 degrees here today and yesterday. After my younger son got home from school yesterday, I had him make the trek up and down the attic ladder to bring down the tree and decorations, and I figured on getting the tree up and lights on, at most. Well, I got a few of the ornaments on as well. I didn’t sleep well, and was awake at four a.m., and around 8:30 or 9 a.m. I picked up where I left off. I am happy to say, that the Christmas decorating (indoors anyway) is done! And the mess is even cleaned up! And I’m sitting here enjoying the breeze and comfy temperatures with the door open, while I look at my tree.
By Sunday we are expecting ice and snow. Crazy weather!
When I let Sammy out this morning at 4 a.m. he ran around the yard, sniffing the air like crazy and barking. He is part Bassett so I had to wonder if he was smelling the cold-front moving in. The temps just started dropping about an hour ago, here, around 1:30. Sammy is a long little doggy. After his frolicking and barking at the sky, he was ready to go back to sleep. I don’t know what this is, some form of “Doggy Twister”?
Guess 4 am. was too early for Sammy!
There is no such thing as “too many ornaments”. But now you see why the tree-decorating had to be broken up.
Having a dog does a bit of a number on your décor. My “style” is pretty loose and eclectic, but this is a bridge too far! He started out with a little piece of the couch to call his own. Now he’s spreading out his territory inch by inch.
What do you think of my goovy coffee table? Note that the Kleenex box is color-coordinated! The two larger (colorful) paintings in the background are Leonid Avromov. LOVE HIS STUFF! The smaller one on the left bottom side is an imitator, who did a pretty darn good job, if you ask me! They are hanging a little off-kilter. I don’t like symmetry, have you noticed? The one of Jesus writing in the sand is by Pennsylvania artist Scott Renfro. He had painted this scene for my friend Tammi Morgan (author of Emerging Butterfly: Finding Life Beyond Anxiety Disorders If you like my personal stories, you’ll enjoy her book! The same open honesty and sharing of her struggles and trials.) When I admired the picture at her house, Tammi said she’d ask him to do one for me. I was just tickled to death when about a month later the painting arrived, without my even knowing it had been completed! You can click on Scott’s name above to see his other work. I love the Biblical accounts of Jesus’ compassion toward women in the Bible. I can so relate!
All of the musical instruments you see on the wall were made by my husband Garrett. Well, actually, the banjolele was a restoration project. It has a beautiful sound. Right now he is working on a Cigar-box blues guitar. It has a really nice sound too. He is with his stringed instruments like I am with my painting. It’s an ability the Lord just built right in there. Garrett’s just joined Facebook and plans to set up a page for his “Grey Bear Guitars and Stringed Oddities”. I’ll put a link up when he gets it together.
This is the view from my little corner of the world from which I bring you Serve Him in the Waiting via my laptop! The view was quite a bit less cluttered pre-Sammy. Note the bed on the floor, and the kennel in the corner. See what a sunny morning I had for getting my tree up? The decorations hanging up over the doorway are the things my boys made at Christmas during the elementary school years. My tree was over 7 feet, and very broad, so I used to put those on the tree. A couple of years back, I gave that humongous tree to a neighbor with little kids, and bought a shorter, pre-lit. But it was wider than I liked, and seemed too sparse to me. I “inherited” the present tree from my neighbor and friend Barbara, who recently downsized to go live with her son and his wife. I sure miss her being my back-door neighbor!
Our house is old, and has a lot of really nice old woodwork in it, which for the longest time I was very reluctant to paint over. But as I have aged, and have had limitations in my physical stamina, etc, I finally came to understand why my Mom liked to paint everything white. It’s so clean-looking and bright. I don’t like dark rooms or dark paneling. I like lots and lots of light. So my walls are various shades of off-whites, with all the trim, now, done in white. Neutral walls and neutral furniture allow for a makeover on the cheap by just getting new rugs, pillow-covers, and things to hang on the wall.
The decorations on the tree are a hodgepodge of Dollar Tree deals, home-made stuff, picture-frame ornaments with each year of the kids lives captured in snaps or school photos, artificial popcorn and cranberries on a string, and old-fashioned “icecicles”-the kind that you can never get your tree completely rid of, once you put them on there, but I love how they shimmer when a breeze stirs them. I think I have about 2000 lights on. That includes the “pre-lit” ones (white) that I didn’t have to put on, but were a real challenge to figure out how to get them all plugged together correctly. Thankfully, I have teenagers. Isaac figured it out. Besides, he has helped Barbara decorate and un-decorate this tree twice now.
I think it’s safe to say Sammy likes the tree!
Since I finished cleaning up and let him in, he has rotated between curling up directly under my feet, to his spot under the table, to the front porch to bark at things, and back to the couch, catching little naps at each pit-stop. It’s a tough job, but somebody’s gotta do it, right Sam?
I hope that you are having a nice Friday wherever you are and whatever you are up to. I think I’m going to take a cue from ole Sam-dog and take a little cat nap myself!
Ben Carson is a man I have greatly admired for many years. I believe that if the Lord doesn’t come before the next election cycle, he is a guy who really stands a chance in turning some things around, if the Lord hasn’t written us off as a nation already, and if Carson can get elected. Here is a link to a story he wrote, carried in the Washington Times. If you don’t know much about him, it’s a good piece for getting an inkling of what the man is made of. I read his autobiography “Gifted Hands” several years ago. He’s a rare species among doctors, and mankind in general. (There are a handful of books by and about him, see HERE).

Last time we went over some very general truths that help the believer understand who he or she is in Christ. We are not the “new Israel.” We are like Israel in that we are also set aside by God, but we have very different purposes for our calling. Again, I will be pulling heavily from Clarence Larkin’s book, The Greatest Book of Dispensational Truth in the World.
What the Church Is Not
The church is not an organization, but a living organism. An organization can be rearranged, added to or subtracted from or otherwise. But an organism cannot be without causing mutilation or permanently destroying the integrity of the body as a whole. This is why no one who is truly born-again can become unsaved. Salvation has always come by God’s grace through our faith. The Law never saved anyone, but was the standard in which everyone would be measured by. Nationally speaking, Israel remained in fellowship with God when they kept the tenants of the law, until Israel/Jews got to the point where the Religion became more important than the relationship. (See Psalm 51:16-17; Jeremiah 31:31-34; 1 Corinthians 12:27; Romans 12:5.)
“And I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; neither shall anyone snatch theout of My hand. My Father, who has given them to Me, is greater than all; and no one is able to snatch them out of My Father’s hand. I and My Father are one” (John 10:28-30).
For those of us in this dispensation our eternal salvation is a onetime event. Once you become “saved” you cannot become “unsaved” because it is God who does the changing in us, not us changing ourselves. But we, like Israel, can also step out of fellowship with God, and although the relationship suffers, our eternal standing in the family of God does not. In this Dispensation (Church Age) once you are truly born again, you become:
1. A new creation-something new means having never existed before and can’t become un-new (2 Corinthians 5:17; Galatians 6:15).
2. Sealed by the Holy Spirit until the Day of Redemption, which is the Rapture (2 Corinthians 1:21-22; Ephesians 1:13-14; 4:5).
3. Jesus promises that those who are given to Him (a new believer) He will not lose, nor can he or she be taken from Him or God the Father (John 6:39; 10:28-30).
So to teach that you can “lose” your salvation means that you can: A) undo what God has created B) Unseal the Holy Spirit’s permanent sealing, C) Overpower Christ by removing yourself from Him and His Father’s hand.
As previously discussed, we understand that the body of Christ is not an organization, but a living organism. But there is symbolism found in the New Testament that alludes to the individual believer as a building. Jesus first compared His body to the Temple (although misunderstood by the Pharisees) in that it could be destroyed (killed) and raised up again in three days (John 2:19). Paul and Peter later use similar symbolism to the Christian as individuals as both a building and tent in relation to the residency of the Holy Spirit. (See 2 Corinthians 5:1; Ephesians 2:20-22; 2 Peter 1:13-14.)

Will this make Kerry the antichrist?
Well, as the Bible says, “there are many antichrists”.
If you are anti-Israel, YOU are antichrist!
When describing the significance of the Geneva understandings between Iran and the P5+1 (the U.S., Russia, China, Britain, France and Germany), the Arab world is not only concerned with sanctions and centrifuges. Articles in the Arab press caution that as a result of the agreement, their countries have reached a “historic turning point” in the Middle East in which their vital interests will be sacrificed as Iran acquires a free hand in the region. This will become possible, in their view, because Geneva represents no less than the beginning of an overall diplomatic rapprochement between the U.S. and Iran.
A “rapprochement” in international relations involves a general relaxation of tensions between two countries that were previously adversaries. Taken from French, it means to bring two parties together. Among the leaders in the Arab states, talk about a U.S.-Iranian rapprochement conjures up a troubling image of a “grand bargain” between the two sides, involving a set of understandings over a broad set of Middle Eastern issues. The pan-Arab daily Al-Hayat proposed that as a result of the breakthrough in the relations between the U.S. and Iran, the “political map of the Middle East as a whole” might change.
Commentators in the region come to such a far-reaching conclusion for multiple reasons. Some write that the U.S. decision to refrain from attacking Syria, after Bashar Assad’s massive use of chemical weapons, was the first sign of this new relationship between Washington and Tehran. Last week, Kuwaiti newspapers even reported that the U.S. was in contact with Hezbollah through British diplomats. Hezbollah did not deny the rumor. The actual evidence of this shift in U.S. policy may have been thin, but it undoubtedly raised eyebrows in the Arab world, where rumors of this sort can obtain enormous mileage even if they are not well substantiated.
Hezbollah was never just a Lebanese organization but rather an arm of the Iranian security services; in recent years it has had a regional role, tipping the balance against the Sunni forces in the Syrian civil war and training Shiite militias in Iraq. The rumors of the Western dialogue with Hezbollah undoubtedly fed the sense that a major realignment of regional politics may be underway, in which Iran and its Shiite allies in the Arab world will be on the ascendancy.
Some analysts in the Arab world are undoubtedly influenced by the rhetoric about the Geneva understandings in the American press. The director of the Brookings Institution branch in Doha, Qatar, Salman Sheikh, complained in an interview in the Saudi daily Asharq Al-Awsat that he was hearing Western scholars talking about the Geneva understandings as though they represent a “great transformation” comparable to end of the Cold War. There have also been comparisons between the meetings in Geneva and then-President Richard Nixon’s famous visit to China. All of this hyperbole undoubtedly influences suspicions in the Arab world that something bigger is cooking between the U.S. and Iran.
A central question raised by all the talk about a U.S.-Iranian rapprochement is whether such a dramatic shift in their relations would be warranted at this stage, if it was at all being contemplated by anyone. Looking at the rapprochement between the U.S. and the Soviet Union as a model, there were important developments that occurred before Washington was prepared to declare in 1991 that the Cold War was over.
It wasn’t the rise to power of Mikhail Gorbachev or his reforms, known as perestroika, that caused the West to rethink its approach to Moscow, but rather the modification of the Soviet Union’s external behavior that made the difference — starting, in particular, with the withdrawal of the Red Army from Afghanistan in 1988. Soviet adventurism in places like Angola, the Horn of Africa, and Central America was finished and Soviet forces even stopped intervening against the anti-Communist revolts that were began in Eastern Europe.
The change in China involved not only the termination of the extreme radicalism of the Cultural Revolution but also a growing split between China and the Soviet Union and the outbreak of border tensions between them in 1969. China could no longer be considered to be part of a Soviet-led Communist bloc. These policy changes preceded Nixon’s trip to China in 1972 and justified in the minds of U.S. officials at the time the efforts to secure a rapprochement between Washington and Beijing, which accelerated the deterioration of China’s relations with North Vietnam, with which the U.S. was still at war.
Looking at the Iranian case today, there is no sign that Tehran is fundamentally changing its footprint in the Middle East as a result of President Hassan Rouhani’s election or the more recent Geneva understandings. Iran’s Revolutionary Guards are on the ground in Syria, not only helping as advisors, but actually taking part in combat operations against the Sunni Arab population and in the bloodbath they have created.
Tehran is also making sure that its Hezbollah proxy remains in Syria and does not withdraw back to Lebanon. Moreover, Iran remains active in a number of Middle Eastern battlefields from Yemen to Iraq. Lately, Hamas has been seeking to rebuild its ties with Iran. As noted above, the Soviet Union set the stage for the end of the Cold War by withdrawing from Afghanistan, but Iran shows no sign of withdrawing its direct involvement in a host of Middle Eastern wars.
Yet Iran has a strong interest in portraying the Geneva understandings as a full rapprochement with the U.S. and the other western powers. Recently two former secretaries of state, Henry Kissinger and George Shultz, warned in a Wall Street Journal op-ed that “if the impression takes hold that the U.S. has already decided to reorient its Middle East policy toward rapprochement with Iran” then the risk will increase that the sanctions will more quickly collapse. Kissinger and Shultz know what they are talking about when they write about rapprochement: They were each architects of earlier American rapprochements with Beijing and Moscow respectively.
As the U.S. and its P5+1 partners contemplate their next steps with Iran, it is imperative that they insist in parallel on very specific changes in Iranian behavior. How can commentators in the West herald a new era in relations between Washington and Tehran, when Iran is still backing what the U.N. has characterized just this week as “war crimes” and “crimes against humanity” by Assad’s forces in Syria? At a minimum, Iran must withdraw from Syria. It also must halt all support for recognized international terrorist organizations, from Hamas and Hezbollah to the Taliban.
It is untenable that new agreements with Tehran will follow, while Iranian governmental bodies still call for death to America or death to Israel. What continuing Iranian involvement in all these activities indicates is the fact that its hostile intent remains unchanged. Under such conditions, any nuclear understandings will not represent a rapprochement between former adversaries, as is being presented in Western capitals, but only a brief cease-fire that won’t last in the struggle that Iran will continue to wage.
EBKAfile Exclusive Report December 6, 2013, 11:31 AM (IDT)
The security plan, which US Secretary of State John Kerry brought with him Thursday, Dec. 5, on his eighth trip for reviving Israeli-Palestinian peace talks, entails deploying a regional international force including US troops along the Jordan Rift Valley and West Bank in a future Palestinian state. This is reported by debkafile’s military and counterterrorism sources. The plan, drawn up by Gen. John Allen, was presented by Kerry for the first time to Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu in Jerusalem and Mahmoud Abbas in Ramallah.
The security provisions Washington promised Israel under a final settlement of its dispute with the Palestinians are assuming a broader, regional form as a US blueprint, on which the Obama administration is still working, for a Middle East regional force to combat Al Qaeda. This force would secure parts of Syria, as well as Jordan, Saudi Arabia, the future Palestinian state and Israel against Al Qaeda attack from positions in Syria, Iraq and Sinai.
The secretary of state proposed integrating Israeli and Palestinian special forces units in the planned regional counter-terror force, alongside the American, British, French, Saudi, Jordanian, Egyptian and Qatari units enlisted to the new framework Since its area of operation would be extensive, ranging from southern Syria to Sinai, including Israel and the potential Palestinian state, the IDF would be able to continue performing its security functions in Judea, Samaria and the Jordan Valley, as part of the new force. But by the same rule, Palestinian forces would be allowed by mutual consent to serve in parts of Israel in the same multinational framework.
The public groundwork for this plan is already being laid by means of extensive reporting in Western media which magnify the ever-present menace Al Qaeda poses to the United States and West Europe from its concentrations in Syria and Iraq.
The US and British media have been fed materials depicting thousands of young American, European, Saudi and Jordanian Islamists flocking to Syria to fight with Al Qaeda-affiliated rebel militias against Bashar Assad and their potential as ticking terror bombs on their return home.
British intelligence, not normally forthcoming on terrorist threats, provided detailed information Friday, Dec. 5, about sophisticated, hard-to-detect bombs, newly developed by the Yemen-based Al Qaeda in Arabia (AQAP), and made of non-metallic and low-vapor explosives disguised as harmless objects like shoes, clothing or soft drink bottles to fool international airport and border post scanners.
All these reports lay stress on the operational links between AQAP and Al Qaeda branches in Syria and Egyptian Sinai.
Thursday, the day Kerry arrived in Israel, Al Qaeda staged one of its biggest operations in recent times against the Yemeni Defense Ministry in Sanaa. It claimed at least 52 lives and injured up to 200 people. Suicide bombers rammed the ministry compound’s gates setting off explosives in cars and bomb belts, while gunmen stormed the defense ministry building and hospital annex, gunning down any personnel they met, including foreign staff. Among the dead were six doctors.
US forces across the region, including Jordan, the Arabian Peninsula and the Horn of Africa, were immediately placed on high terror alert. Friday, as the Secretary of state met the Israeli prime minister for the third time and headed off to the Palmachim Air Force base to inspect the Arrow missile interceptor, US forces in Israel, the embassy in Tel Aviv and General Consulate in Jerusalem were also placed on heightened alert against a major terrorist strike. The Yemeni attack was viewed by experts as an Al Qaeda demonstration of defiance, to show the visiting American official that Washington’s evolving security strategy was no match for its own ability to launch surprise attacks anywhere in the region on the most heavily guarded facilities.
Prime Minister Netanyahu is reported by debkafile’s Jerusalem sources as open to the new security proposal put before him by the secretary of state, although he was familiar with some of its elements from earlier discussions between US and IDF officers on the situation in southern Syria and Jordan and how to deal with it. The Palestinian leader, however, was much more reserved. At first he turned the plan down, but then agreed to look into it in consultation with the Saudis and Jordanians.
