As Israel Observes 76 Years Of Being Back In The Land, The IDF Drops Leaflets Saying ‘Oh Hamas leaders, We Are Coming For You Like A Roaring Flood’

The IDF dropped leaflets in Arabic over the Jabalya in northern Gaza, warning Hamas leaders, ‘We are coming’ on Monday, as Israel observes 76 years being back in the land

Today is May 14th, 2024, and it is the 76th anniversary of Israel officially and formally coming back into the land that God gave unto their fathers, a true modern-day fulfillment of scripture. But the celebrations usually in evidence for this occasion have fallen mostly silent, as Israel continues to wage a war  for their very survival. They are fighting Hamas in Gaza, Hezbollah in Lebanon, Iran through their proxies, and the entire world in the court of public opinion. This is exactly how the prophets said it would be in the last days, and so it is. Aren’t you glad you have a Book that tells you the truth?

For, behold, in those days, and in that time, when I shall bring again the captivity of Judah and Jerusalem, I will also gather all nations, and will bring them down into the valley of Jehoshaphat, and will plead with them there for my people and for my heritage Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations, and parted my land.” Joel 3:1,2 (KJB)

From the day Israel was declared to be a nation in 1948 by American president Harry S. Truman, she has experienced nothing but wars and rumours of wars, and this is the state in which she will exist all the way up to the Second Advent of Jesus Christ. Israel will get a brief break during the first 3.5 years of the time of Jacob’s trouble, but it will only be the false peace brought by Antichrist. Pray for the Jews, pray for the peace of Jerusalem, and tell lost souls about the Jewish Messiah Jesus of Nazareth. He is coming soon!

IDF warns Hamas leaders: We’re coming like a roaring flood

FROM THE JERUSALEM POST: The leaflets feature text over a picture of waves reading, “Oh Hamas leaders, we are coming. If you come back, we will come back. We will return like a roaring flood until the clear victory.”

On Saturday night, the IDF’s 98th Division launched an operation in the Jabalya area due to intelligence that Hamas was reorganizing in the area.

The IDF said Monday that Israeli forces had destroyed large amounts of underground infrastructure, and several Hamas terrorists were eliminated. In one airstrike in Jabalya, a Hamas building where a group of terrorists had gathered was destroyed.

In the Zaytoun neighborhood, just south of Jabalya, the IDF has been operating in recent days to dismantle Hamas infrastructure in the area. READ MORE

Joe Biden Defiantly Declares United States Will Not Supply Israel With Weapons They Need To Rout Hamas From Rafah, Causing Geopolitical Shock Waves

Published

SHARE NOW THE END BEGINS:

US President Joe Biden said Wednesday that his administration will not support Israel or provide it with offensive weapons if it launches an operation against Hamas in populated parts of the southern Gaza city of Rafah.

Just about every war is ultimately pointless when you factor in the number of people who have to die to fight it, but that said, what is the point to waging war, any war, that is never completed? America waged a useless, brutal war in Vietnam for a decade that was never finished and certainly never won. But North Vietnamese don’t live on any border of the United States, Hamas is literally on top of the Jews in Israel.

Is he the God of the Jews only? is he not also of the Gentiles? Yes, of the Gentiles also:” Romans 3:28 (KJB)

Joe Biden is attempting to stand by the Jews while at the same time preventing his Far Left pro-Palestinian base from storming the White House in protest, a fate he will likely not avoid given the current hostile climate of antisemitism that’s sweeping the county at the moment. The entire war Israel has waged against Hamas for the better part of a year now will be in vain if Hamas is allowed to remain in Rafah. Saying you support the Jews and then dumping them when they need you the most is not support by any definition.

Joe Biden: The US won’t give Israel offensive weapons to attack in populated parts of Rafah

FROM THE TIMES OF ISRAEL: The interview marked Biden’s toughest public comments yet on the matter, as concern has grown in the administration that Israel is not planning to heed US warnings against a major offensive that the White House feels wouldn’t take into account the million-plus Palestinians sheltering in Gaza’s southernmost city.

“I’ve made it clear to Bibi (Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu) and the war cabinet: They’re not going to get our support if they go into these population centers,” Biden told CNN.

The remarks also appeared to amount to a threat by Biden to make permanent the hold his administration placed last week on a transfer of 2,000- and 500-pound bombs to Israel over concerns that the IDF could use them in densely populated Rafah, as is has in other parts of Gaza.

Asked, “Have those bombs been used to kill civilians in Gaza,” Biden responded that they had. “Civilians have been killed in Gaza as a consequence of those bombs and other ways in which [Israel] goes after population centers,” he said, without elaborating on the strikes in which they were killed.

“I made it clear that if they go into Rafah… I’m not supplying the weapons that have been used historically to deal with Rafah, to deal with the cities, to deal with that problem,” Biden said.

He distinguished, though, between a potential full-on incursion into Rafah and the operation launched by the IDF earlier this week that was limited to the Rafah border crossing, but noted that “it’s causing problems with (bordering) Egypt.”

“But it’s just wrong. We’re not going to supply the weapons and artillery shells,” Biden asserted.

He clarified that the US will continue supplying Iron Dome missile interceptors and other defensive weapons to ensure that Israel can respond to attacks from adversaries across the region, such as last month’s massive missile and drone barrage from Iran.

“We’re not walking away from Israel’s security. We’re walking away from Israel’s ability to wage war in [populated] areas,” he said.

Asked if Israel has crossed his red line regarding its conduct in Gaza, Biden responded “Not yet,” but indicated Jerusalem was as close as it has ever come following last week’s weapons shipment holdup. Netanyahu and other Israeli leaders have said an offensive in Rafah is necessary to win the war against Hamas, which was triggered by the terror group’s October 7 onslaught. According to Israeli defense officials, four of Hamas’s six remaining battalions are in Rafah, along with members of the terror group’s leadership and a significant number of the hostages it abducted from Israel.

Israel Launches Major Military Offensive On Hamas Stronghold In Rafah As IDF Spokesman Confirms Targeted Airstrikes And Tanks On The Ground

SHARE NOW THE END BEGINS:

The War Cabinet unanimously decided that Israel will ‘continue its operation in Rafah in order to exert military pressure on Hamas in order to promote the release of our hostages and the other goals of the war’

On the Podcast today, we covered the breaking news coming out of Israel as it was happening, and we told you that, in our opinion, the IDF was not going to accept the Hamas truce in light of the 4 IDF soldiers that were killed on Sunday. Also the fact that Hamas was lying about the truce was another major consideration. Now comes more breaking news that the IDF has indeed launched an operation in Rafah with blistering targeted airstrikes and tanks rolling in on the ground.

“Howl, O gate; cry, O city; thou, whole Palestina, art dissolved: for there shall come from the north a smoke, and none shall be alone in his appointed times.” Isaiah 14:31 (KJB)

About two hours after Hamas’ responded positively to an Egyptian-Qatari cease-fire proposal, Palestinian and Arab media reported Monday evening that IDF forces and tanks began to enter Gaza’s East Rafah, in following intense heavy shelling in the eastern area of ​​the city.  The IDF spokesman confirmed the report and said that “IDF forces are attacking and operating now against targets of the terrorist organization Hamas in a targeted manner in East Rafah.” The Palestinians reported that houses were blown up in the al-Shuqa area and around the Rafah Crossing, and that there was tank fire and artillery shelling from the east. **THIS IS A BREAKING NEWS STORY AND WE WILL KEEP YOU UPDATED**

IDF strikes Hamas terror targets in East Rafah

FROM THE JERUSALEM POST: The Prime Minister’s Office said earlier on Monday night that the War Cabinet had agreed to continue with Israel’s planned Rafah operation. “The War Cabinet unanimously decided that Israel continues the operation in Rafah to exert military pressure on Hamas in order to promote the release of our hostages and the other goals of the war,” the statement read.

The PMO also noted that in parallel and despite the fact that the “proposal is far from Israel’s necessary requirements, Israel will send a delegation of mediators to exhaust the possibility of reaching an agreement under conditions acceptable to Israel.”

This comes despite Hamas’s earlier agreement with the Qatari and Egyptian ceasefire proposal. A former Senior Israeli security source told The Jerusalem Post on Monday that the proposed “deal” Hamas said they agreed upon doesn’t actually exist.

Chairman of the National Unity Party Benny Gantz stated on Monday: “I want to address the citizens of Israel and especially the families of the hostages. We face a cruel enemy. We will never give up on the effort to bring our hostages home. We will continue to work for their return as a matter of duty. The negotiation team is working around the clock to examine the proposal presented by Hamas, which does not align with the dialogue held so far with the mediators and contains significant differences. Nevertheless, we continue to turn every stone and dispatch delegations to Cairo.”

“Every decision will be brought to the security cabinet – there will be no political considerations,” he added. “Even the military operation in Rafah is an integral part of our ongoing efforts and commitment to bring back our abductees and change the security reality in the south. We will continue all efforts until we bring them home.” READ MORE
