Quick Takes: News From Israel You May Have Missed

Marking what many here are calling a major escalation in Palestinian terrorism, security officials announced this week that they captured a rocket launcher and eight mortar shells in Bethlehem intended for attack against a neighboring Jerusalem neighborhood.
 
Jerusalem has been the scene of suicide bombings and shooting attacks, but Palestinian rockets have never been fired at the city. Any rocket attack against a major Israeli city is expected to prompt a massive Israeli retaliation, and could drastically impact the Jewish state’s economy.

Abu Abir, a leader of the planned rocket attack against Jerusalem, said his group, the Popular Resistance Committees, will soon launch a rocket war against the Jewish state. He threatened to fire missiles at Israel’s international airport and warned that his group’s rockets will soon “bring hell” to Israelis.

“We call on [Shin Bet chief Yuval] Diskin and tell him not to be so happy and proud about stopping our attack against Jerusalem this week because there is much more to come. The lives of Israeli citizens will turn to hell very soon,” Abu Abir said.

“I am not going to give details (about which cities we will attack), but we are planning to be present all around the West Bank. Every Israeli target is a legitimate target. Wherever there is an Israeli soldier or settler they will find our rockets. Jerusalem, Ben Gurion International Airport, Tel Aviv and every Israeli point can be part of our goals. Whenever it is needed rockets will be fired against every Israeli settlement, city or neighborhood.”

Now that acting Prime Minister Ehud Olmert had announced his administration will seek an Israeli withdrawal from the West Bank, Abu Abir said, terrorism against Israel must be stepped up “to prove we are chasing out the Israelis like we did in Gaza.”

“Any withdrawal will be accompanied by rockets, shootings and other resistance attacks. We want to prove to the world that the Israelis do not understand any language other than the language of force…. We will increase our rocket shootings in the West Bank and against other Israeli targets because we believe that the same way our rockets and guns obliged Israel to withdraw from Gaza, they will also oblige them to withdrawal from the other parts of Palestine, and we are speaking about all Palestine.”

Does Israel have beneath its surface an enormous oil reserve mapped out in the Torah that, when found, will immediately change the geopolitical structure of the Middle East and confirm the validity of the Bible to people around the world?

The officers of Zion Oil believe this is the case. The company uses updated scientific methods alongside biblical text to explore for oil north of Tel Aviv, and recently found evidence of oil hydrocarbons at its drilling site in Kibbutz Ma’anit north of Tel Aviv.

Zion used a strategy by James Spillman, an evangelical minister and Bible scholar, to determine exactly where on the biblical map the oil might be. Zion CEO John Brown referred to several biblical passages he says he is certain indicate where to find petroleum. He stressed that two of the passages detailing God’s blessings to Jacob’s telve sons are very specific:

“Let Asher be blessed … and let him dip his foot in oil.” – Deuteronomy 33:24

“Joseph is a fruitful bough by a well … blessings of heaven above, blessings of the deep that couches beneath shall be on the head of Joseph, and on the crown of the head.” – Genesis 49: 22-26

Brown also pointed to other verses, such as the continuation of Joseph’s blessing in Deuteronomy 33: “For the deep that couches beneath … and for the chief things of the ancient mountains, and for the precious things of primordial hills, and for the precious things of the earth.”

He says if Israel strikes oil it would free the Jewish state from Arab blackmail. And, he says, “of course there are the giant biblical implications. This will get people thinking about God and realizing His word is the truth.”

In response to reports the United States and Israel are exploring ways to monetarily isolate his terror group, which is currently forming the next Palestinian government, Hamas leader Mahmoud al-Zahar this week slammed international critics and claimed Hamas doesn’t need “satanic” American money.

But al-Zahar took quite a different tone just prior to the reports about the possible American-led financial sanctions when he said in an interview that his organization will “gladly” accept U.S. financial aid and that he will allow American donations to be monitored by “anyone who wants.”

Al-Zahar, whose group has openly funded and carried out scores of suicide bombings and rocket and shooting attacks against Israelis, went on to lobby outright lobby for American funds. He claimed he would use the money to build “factories, agriculture and [other] real investments in the Palestinian people.”
