The Truth of God and Our Lord Jesus Christ

Special Palestine Cry Blog articles: The Catholic Creed: The meaning of the Pasch of Christians.

JESUS CHRIST IS THE ONLY WAY AND TRUTH AND LIFE - NO ONE COMES TO THE FATHER EXCEPT BY HIM.

For as it was not possible that the man who had once for all been conquered, and who had been destroyed through disobedience, could reform himself, and obtain the prize of victory; and as it was also impossible that he could attain to salvation who had fallen under the power of sin,-the Son effected both these things, being the Word of God, descending from the Father, becoming incarnate, stooping low, even to death, and consummating the arranged plan of our salvation, upon whom [Paul], exhorting us unhesitatingly to believe, again says, "Who shall ascend into heaven? that is, to bring down Christ; or who shall descend into the deep? that is, to liberate Christ again from the dead." Then he continues, "If thou shall confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised Him from the dead, thou shall be saved." And he renders the reason why the Son of God did these things, saying, "For to this end Christ both lived, and died, and revived, that He might rule over the living and the dead." And again, writing to the Corinthians, he declares, "But we preach Christ Jesus crucified; "and adds, "The cup of blessing which we bless, is it not the communion of the blood of Christ? " - St. Irenaeus, Against Heresies, Book III, Chapter XVIII, Section 2.

The Crucifixion of the Lord Jesus Christ, Mary and John and the women at the foot of the Cross

Matthew 27:45 Now from the sixth hour, there was darkness over all the earth, until the ninth hour.

Origen tell us this darkness was only in Palestine, and the neighbouring countries: for as to the words, over the whole earth, or over the whole land, we find one kingdom or empire, by a common way of speaking, called the whole earth, or the whole world. As to the cause of the obscuration of the sun; and secondly, as to the extent of its darkness. Origen tells us that the darkness was partial, and confined to Judea and the neighbouring countries, as the darkness of Egypt was only perceived in that country, and not in Gessen, where the children of Israel were. Saint Jerome tells us that the obscurity was caused by the rays of the sun being suddenly withdrawn by divine power, as was the case in Egypt. The darkness in Egypt during the Passover of Moses was due to God's protection withdrawn from that land at that time. The darkness when Christ was Crucified for us is the judgement of God upon His Son Jesus Christ, in our place. For Jesus Christ knew NO sin. He never sinned, nor could He ever.

The meaning of the Pasch of Christians.

The Book of Wisdom, Chapter 17, describes the devils and demons thrown back upon the Egyptians when the Israelites under Moses were brought out of Egypt by God for God’s purposes (to prepare a place for the Crucifixion of Our Lord for the Redemption of the whole world of those who are saved). In the same way the same false gods and goddesses that the Egyptians served and which in so doing were the reason the Egyptians sacrificed their sons and daughters to the devils and demons behind the false gods/goddesses were the spirits that killed the Egyptian children that perished when the Israelites were brought out of Egypt. God does not murder children, period. The angel of death which destroyed in Egypt was one of the fallen spirits. God did not cause any of the fallen spirits to hurt anyone. God allowed the fallen spirits to do what it is their nature do to when He brought the Israelites out of the gates of hell which was Egypt. The children below the age of reason that died went to be with God for eternity, they will be resurrected with the just at the Second Coming of Christ. This principle of God allowing the innocent to be afflicted along with guilty finds its ultimate fulfillment in Christ’s singular and only salvific Kenosis. Jesus Christ committed no sin, not ever nor could He, and was and is and only could be utterly and absolutely and completely innocent of any and all wrongdoing and sin by His very nature as the Holy and True God. The guiltless sacrificed by His own will for the guilty. Even when the innocent are afflicted by the actions and evils instigated by the fallen spirits in the world, the innocent are not possessed by those fallen spirits. The principle of all being afflicted by the evil set loose upon the world for its unrepentant sin will occur when the universal plagues are let loose upon the world. See Apocalypse 16

The principle of our always, for our part, protecting children is given us by Our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ in the Gospel of Matthew, Chapter 18

1 At *that hour the disciples came to Jesus, saying: Who, thinkest thou, is the greater in the kingdom of heaven?

2 *And Jesus calling unto him a little child, set him in the midst of them,

3 And said: Amen I say unto you, *unless you be converted, and become as little children, you shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven.

4 Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, he is the greater in the kingdom of heaven.

5 And he that shall receive one such little child in my name, receiveth me.

10 Take heed that you despise not one of these little ones: for I say to you, *that their angels in heaven always see the face of my Father who is in heaven.

The principle of our ONLY worshipping the True God, the Father and the Son Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit is given first in the historical truth of the Garden of Eden when Christ, who is the Tree of Life commands the first man and his wife, Adam and Eve to not have anything to do with the tree of the knowledge of good and evil which is Satan, the first fallen angel, nor with any of the fallen angels with Satan. Assisi of Babylon/Vatican/Rome is absolute and complete violation of that principle and is the Great Apostasy in full blown Satanic evil. Have nothing to do with the Vatican or suffer its eternal damnation in hell with it. The devil and demon worshipping pagans and the perfidious deicidal Jews are not ever any part of the Salvific action of Christ upon Golgotha/Calvary. Individual pagans and Jews if they repent of their not confessing Jesus Christ as the Immortal Son of God become flesh for our sake and sacrificed for our salvation and who confess publicly their sin of devil and demon worshipping and perfidy and deicide and who beg the Lord of all, the Lord God, the Father and the Son Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit for forgiveness of their horrid and abominable sins, can and will be forgiven if they do so now in this life and will enter into the only path of salvation there is as dictated by God Himself. The Church, all the faithful – there is no other meaning acceptable to God for the word Church, is commanded by God to not have anything to do with the Apostasy.

Book of Wisdom, Chapter 17

1 For thy judgments, O Lord, are great, and thy words cannot be expressed: therefore undisciplined souls have erred.

2 For while the wicked thought to be able to have dominion over the holy nation, they themselves being fettered with the bonds of darkness, and a long night, shut up in their houses, lay there exiled from the eternal providence.

3 And while they thought to lie hid in their obscure sins, they were scattered under a dark veil of forgetfulness, being horribly afraid and troubled with exceeding great astonishment.

4 For neither did the den that held them, keep them from fear: for noises coming down troubled them, and sad visions appearing to them, affrighted them.

5 And no power of fire could give them light, neither could the bright flames of the stars enlighten that horrible night.

6 But there appeared to them a sudden fire, very dreadful: and being struck with the fear of that face, which was not seen, they thought the things which they saw to be worse:

7 And the delusions of their magic art were put down, and their boasting of wisdom was reproachfully rebuked.

8 For they who promised to drive away fears and troubles from a sick soul, were sick themselves of a fear worthy to be laughed at.

9 For though no terrible thing disturbed them: yet being scared with the passing by of beasts, and hissing of serpents, they died for fear: and denying that they saw the air, which could by no means be avoided.

10 For whereas wickedness is fearful, it beareth witness of its condemnation: for a troubled conscience always forecasteth grievous things.

11 For fear is nothing else but a yielding up of the succours from thought.

12 And while there is less expectation from within, the greater doth it count the ignorance of that cause which bringeth the torment.

13 But they that during that night, in which nothing could be done, and which came upon them from the lowest and deepest hell, slept the same sleep.

14 Were sometimes molested with the fear of monsters, sometimes fainted away, their soul failing them: for a sudden and unlooked for fear was come upon them.

15 Moreover if any of them had fallen down, he was kept shut up in prison without irons.

16 For if any one were a husbandman, or a shepherd, or a labourer in the field, and was suddenly overtaken, he endured a necessity from which he could not fly.

17 For they were all bound together with one chain of darkness. Whether it were a whistling wind, or the melodious voice of birds, among the spreading branches of trees, or a fall of water running down with violence,

18 Or the mighty noise of stones tumbling down, or the running that could not be seen of beasts playing together, or the roaring voice of wild beasts, or a rebounding echo from the highest mountains: these things made them to swoon for fear.

19 For the whole world was enlightened with a clear light, and none were hindered in their labours.

20 But over them only was spread a heavy night, an image of that darkness which was to come upon them. But they were to themselves more grievous than the darkness.

Traditional Catholic Prayers: The Justice of God: The Antichrist and the False Prophet

Below are the Two Horns of the Son of Perdition - the Antichrist is the Son of Perdition and rides the Beast of the Earth, which is the Harlot of False Prophecy (Rome - the Vatican) and is itself (the Beast of the Earth) - The False Prophet. The False Prophet is one of the horns - with the Antichrist being the other horn - of the Beast of the Earth, as this progresses toward infesting itself in a rebuilt temple in Jerusalem in defiance of God's decree against this temple.

The Beast of the Sea is the principal political power comprised of the Illuminati (both Judaist and Gentile) and gives birth to the Antichrist. Together they rule the earth for a short time, until Jesus Christ returns and destroys them all with the Brightness of His Coming and a Flaming Fire of Righteous Judgment.

The Beast of the Sea
Rv:13:
1 ¶ (12-18) And he stood upon the sand of the sea. (13-1) And I saw a beast [1] coming up out the sea, having seven heads and ten horns: and upon his horns, ten diadems: and upon his heads, names of blasphemy. … Scripture reference – Rev.: 11:7!; Dan.: 7:3; Rev.: 12:3; 17:3

3 And I saw one of his heads as it were slain to death: and his death’s wound was healed. And all the earth was in admiration after the beast. … Scripture reference – Rev.: 13:12; 17:8
4 And they adored the dragon which gave power to the beast. And they adored the beast, saying: Who is like to the beast? And who shall be able to fight with him? … Scripture reference – Rev.: 13:12; 17:8
5 And there was given to him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies: and power was given to him to do, two and forty months.
6 And he opened his mouth unto blasphemies against God, to blaspheme his name and his tabernacle and them that dwell in heaven.
7 And it was given unto him to make war with the saints and to overcome them. And power was given him over every tribe and people and tongue and nation. … Scripture reference – Rev.: 11:7!; 12:17
8 And all that dwell upon the earth adored him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb which was slain from the beginning of the world. … Scripture reference – Rev.: 17:8; 20:15!; 21:27; Ps.: 68:29!; Rev.: 14:12

The Beast of the Earth
11 ¶ And I saw another beast coming up out of the earth: and he had two horns, like a lamb: and he spoke as a dragon.
12 And he executed all the power of the former beast in his sight. And he caused the earth and them that dwell therein to adore the first beast, whose wound to death was healed. … Scripture reference – Rev.: 13: 3,4
13 And he did great signs, so that he made also fire to come down from heaven unto the earth, in the sight of men.
14 And he seduced them that dwell on the earth, for the signs which were given him to do in the sight of the beast: saying to them that dwell on the earth that they should make the image of the beast which had the wound by the sword and lived.
15 And it was given him to give life to the image of the beast: and that the image of the beast should speak: and should cause that whosoever will not adore the image of the beast should be slain.
16 And he shall make all, both little and great, rich and poor, freemen and bondmen, to have a character [3] in their right hand or on their foreheads: … Scripture reference – Rev.: 14:9; 20:4
17 And that no man might buy or sell, but he that hath the character, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. … Scripture reference – Rev.: 14:11!
18 Here is wisdom. He that hath understanding, let him count the number of the beast. For it is the number of a man: and the number of him is six hundred sixty-six. [4] … Scripture reference – Rev.: 17:9
(DRV)
[1] -Ver. 1. The picture of the first beast is based on the seventh chapter of Daniel. This beast is the figure of the kingdoms of the world, kingdoms founded on passion and
selfishness, which in every age are antagonistic to Christ and seek to oppress the ,servants of God. Imperial Rome represents this power.
[2] -Ver. 10. The weapons of the saints are faith and patience; they must accept sufferings and persecution as Christ did His cross.
[3] -Ver. 16. Character (mark): as slaves received a brand or a mark in their flesh, indicating to whom they belonged, so in the spiritual conflict there is on the side of good and of evil a
brand or mark. St. Paul spoke of such marks in his own body that proved him a slave of Jesus Christ [Gal. 6, 17]. So the false prophet seeks to, impress a mark on all. What this mark is will be manifested in its time.
[4] -Ver. 18. Six hundred and sixty-six: the original type of the number is that it represents the name Caesar Neron, which in Hebrew characters make up the number 666. (Hebrew words read right to left) — Hebrew letters for Kaiser (Caesar) Neron (Nero) = nrwn ksr = (Hebrew in parentheses) 100 (Kop)+ 60 (Samek)+ 200 (Res)+ 50 (Nun)+ 200 (Res)+ 6 (Waw)+ 50 (Nun) = 666. {Additional source for nrwn ksr and each numeric equivalent: The Anchor Bible Dictionary volume IV – page 1145.} The final Gematria/Isosephia alpha-numeric name is known to God. It symbolizes extreme imperfection, for each digit is one short of seven, the number that signifies perfection; it tells us, as the Church Fathers and Doctors all agree, prophetically, of the name the Antichrist will bear. The Fathers concur emphatically that the number is 666 and not 616 as some corrupt manuscripts mistakenly read.

Syncretist Papism as a replacement for Catholicism and Rabbinic Talmudic Judaism as a replacement for Mosaic Torah Israelite religion are both shown forth by the two Beasts.Judaism by the Beast from the Sea (the First Beast) and Papism by the Beast from the Earth (the Second Beast). The final fulfillment will be: the False Prophet which is the Beast from the Earth, and the Antichrist which is the Beast from the Sea. In a finer exegesis, the False Prophet in the rebuilt temple with the Antichrist and the two of them commanding the world to worship Satan by allegiance to the Antichrist will be the two horns on the Second Beast (the Beast from the Earth) during the three and one half year public period (forty two months) of horrid persecution of the saints who will not bow to theAntichrist. (Revelation 13:5 And there was given to him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies: and power was given to him to do, two and forty months.) Those who bow to the Antichrist and take his mark will be damned forever. In opposition to the two horns of perdition (the Antichrist and the False Prophet) whose only purpose will be to lead people who reject the saving grace of Christ to damnation, God will send the two witnesses (St. Enoch and St. Elijah who will return to earth alive - they have never died, but they will, see Revelation Chapter 11) to warn people not to have anything to do with the Antichrist and the False Prophet.

NOTE: That the Antichrist (from apostate Judaism which is the First Beast) and the False Prophet (from apostate Christianity which is the Second Beast) both ride to power in the passage of scripture above, Revelation 13th Chapter, and the exegesis of the Church Fathers below, on the Second Beast, specifically Papism in the false council Vatican II apostate sense. Vatican II's Nostrae Aetate is the prime document of Apostasy in this Judas Goat deceiving of people. As the scripture states explicitly: Revelation 13:15 And it was given him to give life to the image of the beast: and that the image of the beast should speak: and should cause that whosoever will not adore the image of the beast should be slain. It is the the Second Beast with the two horns that commands people be killed for not taking the Mark of the Beast. Taking the Mark will irrevocably damn everyone who takes it. It is BOTH of the two horns, both the False Prophet and the Antichrist, who command the death sentence on those who will not take the Mark of the Beast. The false prophets of Vatican II are already headed for and will actively be part of killing the faithful to Our Only Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.

Commentary on the Apocalypse of Blessed John


St. Hippolytus, Treatise on Christ and Antichrist 



49. By the beast, then, coming up out of the earth, he means the kingdom of Antichristand by the two horns he means him and the false prophet with him.109 And in speaking of "the horns being like a lamb," he means that he will make himself like the Son of God, and set himself forward as king. And the terms, "he spake like a dragon," mean that he is a deceiver, and not truthful. And the words, "he exercised all the power of the first beast before him, and caused the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed," signify that, after the manner of the law of Augustus, by whom the empire of Rome was established, he too will rule and govern, sanctioning everything by it, and taking greater glory to himself. For this is the fourth beast, whose head was wounded and healed again, in its being broken up or even dishonoured, and partitioned into four crowns; and he then (Antichrist) shall with knavish skill heal it, as it were, and restore it. For this is what is meant by the prophet when he says, "He will give life unto the image, and the image of the beast will speak." For he will act with vigour again, and prove strong by reason of the laws established by him; and he will cause all those who will not worship the image of the beast to be put to death. Here the faith and the patience of the saints will appear, for he says: "And he will cause all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand or in their forehead; that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, the name of the beast, or the number of his name." For, being full of guile, and exalting himself against the servants of God, with the wish to afflict them and persecute them out of the world, because they give not glory to him, he will order incense-pans110 to be set up by all everywhere, that no man among the saints may be able to buy or sell without first sacrificing; for this is what is meant by the mark received upon the right hand. And the word-"in their forehead"-indicates that all are crowned, and put on a crown of fire, and not of life, but of death. For in this wise, too, did Antiochus Epiphanes the king of Syria, the descendant of Alexander of Macedon, devise measures against the Jews. He, too, in the exaltation of his heart, issued a decree in those times, that "all should set up shrines before their doors, and sacrifice, and that they should march in procession to the honour of Dionysus, waving chaplets of ivy; "and that those who refused obedience should be put to death by strangulation and torture. But he also met his due recompense at the hand of the Lord, the righteous Judge and all-searching God; for he died eaten up of worms. And if one desires to inquire into that more accurately, he will find it recorded in the books of the Maccabees.111

Criminal Israeli Navy Harassing Palestinian Fishers

Euro-Mid Unveils Footage of Israeli Warships Deliberately Dumping Palestinian Fishing Boats – Press Release – 30 Aug 2012 – Geneva- Gaza
Euro-Mid denounced Israeli warships’ deliberate act of attacking and dumping Palestinian fishing boats within the permissible fishing zone; endangering the lives of fishermen and civilians onboard the boats.
Euro-Mid Observer for Human Rights has distributed a video recording captured by a journalist working for Media Town. The Video shows two Israeli worships pursuing five Palestinian fishing boats owned by Gazan citizens in the Gazan waters. The footage was recorded at 10: 30 Tuesday morning, August 28.  
Euro-Mid condemned the ruthless attack of the Israeli warships which directly endangered the lives of Palestinian fishermen. Meanwhile, Euro-Mid warned against the continuation of such barbarous practices in the absence of international monitoring and deterrence.
Euro-Mid considered the attack one of the many systematic practices used by Israel to destroy the fishing sector in the Gaza Strip, a sector that sustains more than 70,000 residents at time of high levels of unemployment and poverty due to Israeli siege.

Euro-Mid noted the attack occurred within the three nautical mile limit set by Israeli military. The fishing boats shown in the video, in fact, were chased at a distance of less than two nautical miles from shore which is an evident violation of the international law and the Israel’s own law.
A detailed report by Euro-Mid was issued last May concluded that Israeli authorities did not only limit the permissible fishing zone, but also intended to prevent a great number of fishermen( around 3600) from practicing their own trade freely and safely, even within the permissible 3-mile limit, using its warships.
Euro-Mid report documented an estimat number of 150 violations per year committed by Israel against Gaza fishermen including arbitrarily arrests and shootings, in addition to dumping, vandalizing, and confiscating fishing boats.

Donors Should Reevaluate Support for Palestinian Security Forces

The US finances and trains the National Security Force (NSF), a Palestinian gendarmerie, whose officers participated in Amer’s arrest, his father told Human Rights Watch. The NSF, which has been the subject of two torture complaints by Palestinians since January 2009, does not interrogate detainees or operate prisons, but conducts joint arrest raids with the intelligence service and Preventive Security and turns detainees over to their custody. Source HRW.
August 27 2012 – Human Rights Watch – The Palestinian Authority (PA) should urgently act to hold accountable the police officials responsible for recent beatings of peaceful demonstrators in Ramallah in the West Bank. Police severely beat protesters in the street and dragged others to a police station, where the police continued to beat and kick them. At least six protesters required hospitalization.
A coalition of Palestinian human rights groups released a report on August 27, 2012, that identified several senior police officials who were present and in charge of the forces that beat protesters in Ramallah’s main square on June 30 and July 1.
“Two months and four reports later, the Palestinian Authority has not yet brought to justice the police officers responsible for brutal assaults on peaceful protesters in Ramallah’s main square,” said Joe Stork, deputy Middle East director at Human Rights Watch. “The PA should end its foot-dragging and promptly investigate and prosecute abuse by members of its security forces.”
Senior Palestinian officials have said they will carry out the recommendations of a prior report on the incidents by an independent committee of inquiry established by President Mahmud Abbas. On July 24, the committee delivered a report to Abbas that called for the prosecution of the head of the Ramallah police station, the chief of police for the Ramallah area, and the head of the criminal investigations unit, among others.
Palestinian news reports said that the Palestinian Interior Ministry delivered the results of its own inquiry to Abbas in early August. The official Palestinian human rights ombudsman reported on the incidents to the interior minister on July 3.

The Palestinian Authority’s civil police are funded and trained by a European Union program, EUPOL-COPPS, with a €9.3 million annual budget. The United States and other countries support other Palestinian security services in the West Bank. The EU program states that it aims to create a criminal justice system that “complies with international human rights standards” by advising and closely mentoring the Palestinian police, “specifically senior officials at District and Headquarters level.”
“The EU and US should take a hard look at the PA security forces’ record of impunity, and condition support for those forces on credible investigations and prosecutions of abuses,” Stork said.
From January 2009 to July 2012, the Independent Commission for Human Rights (ICHR), the official Palestinian human rights ombudsman, received 584 complaints of torture and cruel, inhuman, and degrading treatment by Palestinian security forces in the West Bank, including severe beatings, slamming detainees’ heads against the wall, forcing detainees to stand or sit in painful positions for prolonged periods, and sleep deprivation. Of the 109 alleged cases of abuse reported in 2012, 62 were by civil police investigators.
Human Rights Watch has not uncovered information about a single case in which a Palestinian security official has been judicially punished for serious abuses, including torture and denial of medical treatment that caused death. In one case, security officials were prosecuted for abuses involving a death in detention from torture. All were acquitted.
The Palestinian Authority has claimed in the past that it disciplined security officials for abuses but has not published the names of the officials or any other verifiable information about these cases.
On June 30, uniformed police and plainclothes security officers punched, kicked, bludgeoned, and arbitrarily arrested demonstrators who had gathered in the main square of Ramallah to protest a planned meeting between the Palestinian prime minister, Salam Fayyad, and Shaul Mofaz, then the vice prime minister of Israel. When demonstrators gathered on July 1 to protest those abuses, police attacked them again. At least six protesters were hospitalized for injuries from police assaults on both days, according to the separate reports by the inquiry committee and Palestinian human rights groups.
Police also beat journalists covering the events, the latest in a series of attacks on journalists by Palestinian security forces. Mohammed Jaradat, an independent journalist, told Human Rights Watch that police beat him at the demonstration, dragged him to the nearby central Ramallah police station, and held him down on the ground while striking him with truncheons and kicking him. He was hospitalized for two days for injuries all over his body, he said.
On July 3, the ICHR commissioner-general, Ahmad Harb, met with the Palestinian interior minister, Said Abu Ali, and presented him with the report documenting “the unjustified use of force and beating of a number of participants in the peaceful demonstrations, and the detention of a number of others for some time before being released,” the commission said in a statement.
On July 2, Abbas established the independent inquiry committee, headed by Munib al-Masry, a leading Palestinian businessman, which interviewed dozens of witnesses and officials. The committee’s July 24 report to Abbas identified individual police officials responsible for the attacks.  The report’s executive summary and recommendations, which were published in the Palestinian media, called on the Palestinian Authority to ensure that the police officials are criminally prosecuted.
Al-Masry later told Human Rights Watch that Abbas had called on Abu Ali, the interior minister, to carry out the committee’s recommendations. On August 15, Abu Ali told the committee that he was in the process of issuing the necessary recommendations to do so.
On August 27, the Palestinian Council of Human Rights Organizations, which includes rights groups such as Al-Haq and Addameer, published a report stating that Palestinian police and officers wearing civilian clothes attacked protesters on June 30 on the orders of the Ramallah chief of police, Lt. Col. Abd al-Latif al-Kadumi, to push the protesters back. Police attacks on June 30 and July 1 were both conducted in the presence of al-Kadumi and his deputy, and Maj. Mohammed Abu Bakr, director of the city’s police station, the report said.
The report cited a statement to news media in which the Palestinian security services spokesman, Maj. Gen. Adnan Al-Damiri, said that police acted to stop the protests from reaching the presidential headquarters – the Muqataa compound – in Ramallah, where demonstrations are “prohibited.”
In another recent case, members of the Palestinian Preventive Security service allegedly tortured Zakaria Zubeidi, the co-founder of The Freedom Theater, a theater company in Jenin, at a detention facility in Jericho. Zubeidi has been detained without charge since May 13 on suspicion of knowing the location of guns in the possession of armed groups, which he denies.
The Palestinian Authority has failed to act on the recommendations of other independent inquiries into abuse by security forces. For instance, in response to the report of the UN Fact-Finding Mission on the Gaza Conflict, led by Richard Goldstone, which documented arbitrary arrests, torture of detainees, and attacks by Palestinian Authority security forces on journalists and demonstrators protesting in the West Bank against Israeli military attacks in Gaza in December 2008-January 2009, Abbas authorized an independent inquiry committee.
The committee’s report, published in June 2010, called on the Palestinian Authority to “hold accountable and prosecute those who violate the law, whether by acts of arbitrary detention, by crimes of torture or other forms of cruel or degrading treatment or by violations of other rights and freedoms.” The Palestinian Authority has not published specific, verifiable information about any such prosecutions, however.
Human Rights Watch also documented Israel’s and Hamas’s responses to the Goldstone report’s other recommendations.

Benefiz Fußballturnier mit Bgm. Häupl und Senator Nettig « Kawther Salam

Benefiz Fußballturnier mit Bgm. Häupl und Senator Nettig « Kawther Salam

Benefiz Fußballturnier mit Bgm. Häupl und Senator Nettig

Am Samstag 25. August 2012 spielten vier Mannschaften, Sport, Wirtschaft, Politik und Medien ein  Traditionelles Benefiz-Fußballturnier im Stadion auf der Hohen Warte. Es haben auch gespielt  die Mannschaften von Austria Wien, Rapid Wien, Sportklub und Vienna in einem “Wiener-Mini-Turnier“.
Anwesend waren unter anderen Bürgermeister Dr. Michael Häupl, Kapitän der Mannschaft „Politik“, Senator Prof. Walter Nettig, Kapitän der Manschaft „Wirtschaft“ und die Sponsorin des Teams, die Präsidentin der Wirtschaftskammer Wien KR Brigitte Jank, Markus Krätschmer, Kapitän der Manschaft „Sport und Kultur“ und Paul Tesarek, Kapitän der Mannschaft „Presse und Medien“.
Unter den Sportlern der Mannschaften waren viele bekannte Politiker und Prominente wie Manfred Juracka (ÖVP), Bernhard Häupl, Sohn von Bürgermeister Häupl, Alfred Hoch (ÖVP), Franz Ekkamp (SPÖ) und viele andere Politiker aus dem Rathaus, wie auch Persönlichkeiten aus der Wirtschaft, Sport, Kultur, Medien in der Stadt. Zum Auftakt des Nachmittags hat die Kapelle der Wiener Polizei gespielt.
Viele Wiener, unter ihnen auch die Familien der Spieler, haben dem Wohltätigkeitsereignis beigewohnt um ihre Mannschaften zu ermutigen oder einfach einen angenehmen Nachmittag mit der Familie und in angenehmer Gesellschaft zu verbringen. Das erste Tor, von der „Politik“ Mannschaft, wurde gehörig gefeiert, und Kapitän Häupl von seinem Team und dem Spieler umarmt der das Tor schoss.
Leider haben keine Vertreter der Arabischen oder Islamischen Gemeinden in Wien an dem Charity-Event beigewohnt, und es gäbe genug bekannte Namen die von dem Turnier wussten. Leider gibt es noch zu viele Leute die zwar von Integration sprechen aber sie kaum praktizieren und die nicht verstehen wollen, daß Integration keine Einwegstraße ist. Zu einem Event wie einem Fußballnachmittag braucht man keine persönliche Einladung, und es wurde schon Tags zuvor in unterschiedlichen Medien bekanntgegeben.
Aus den bisherigen 17 Turnieren wurden rund 400.000 Euro für den Behindertensport lukriert und auch heuer wird die stolze Summe von €30.000 wieder erwartet. Der Erlös ermöglicht eine Direktförderung von Paralympics Leichtathletin Natalija Eder (sehbehindert) und Paralympics Schwimmer Andreas Onea (armamputiert) und eine großzügige Unterstützung für den Österreichischen Behindertensportverband.

Special Palestine Cry Blog articles: Prayer Against Evil: Our Lord Jesus Christ taught us to pray

Special Palestine Cry Blog articles: Prayer Against Evil: Our Lord Jesus Christ taught us to pray




MATTHEW 9
CHAPTER IX.

Christ heals one sick of the palsy; calls Matthew; cures the issue of blood; raises to life the daughter of Jairus; gives sight to two blind, and heals a dumb man possessed by the devil.  Harvest, and workmen.

1 And entering into a boat, *he passed over the water, and came into his own city.
2 *And behold they brought to him a man sick of the palsy lying on a bed.  And Jesus seeing their faith, said to the man sick of the palsy: Son, be of good heart, thy sins are forgiven thee.
3 And behold some of the scribes said within themselves: This man blasphemeth.
4 And Jesus seeing their thoughts, said: Why do you think evil in your hearts?
5 Which is easier to say, Thy sins are forgiven thee; or to say, Arise, and walk?
6 But that you may know that the Son of man hath power on earth to forgive sins, then saith he to the man sick of the palsy, Arise, take thy bed, and go into thy house.
7 And he arose, and went into his house.
8 And the multitude seeing it, feared, and glorified God, who had given such power to men.
9 *And when Jesus passed on from thence, he saw a man sitting in the custom-house, named Matthew: and he saith to him: Follow me.  And he rose up, and followed him.
10 And it came to pass as he was sitting at table in the house, behold many publicans and sinners came, and sat down with Jesus and his disciples.
11 And the Pharisees seeing it, said to his disciples: Why doth your master eat with publicans and sinners?
12 But Jesus hearing it, said: They that are in health, need not a physician, but they that are ill.
13 Go then and learn what this meaneth, *I will have mercy, and not sacrifice.  For I am not come to call the just, **but sinners.
14 Then came to him the disciples of John, saying, *Why do we, and the Pharisees fast often, but thy disciples do not fast?
15 And Jesus said to them: Can the children of the bridegroom mourn, as long as the bridegroom is with them?  But the days will come, when the bridegroom shall be taken away from them, and then they shall fast.
16 And no one putteth a piece of raw cloth to an old garment: for it taketh away what was whole from the garment, and the rent is made worse.
17 Neither do they put new wine into old bottles: otherwise the bottles break, and the wine runneth out, and the bottles are lost.  But new wine they put into new bottles: and both are preserved.
18 *While he was speaking these things to them, behold a certain ruler came up, and adored him, saying: Lord, my daughter is just now dead: but come, lay thy hand upon her, and she shall live.
19 And Jesus rising up, followed him, with his disciples.
20 *And behold a woman who was troubled with an issue of blood twelve years, came behind him, and touched the hem of his garment.
21 For she said within herself: If I shall only touch his garment, I shall be healed.
22 But Jesus turning about, and seeing her, said: Take courage, daughter, thy faith hath made thee whole.  And the woman was made whole from that hour.
23 And when Jesus was come into the house of the ruler, and saw the minstrels and the multitude in an uproar, he said:
24 Give place: for the girl is not dead, but sleepeth.  And they laughed scornfully at him.
25 And when the crowd was turned out, he went in, and took her by the hand: and the girl arose.
26 And the fame hereof went abroad into all that country.
27 And as Jesus passed from thence, there followed him two blind men, crying out, and saying: Son of David, have mercy on us.
28 And when he was come to the house, the blind men came to him.  And Jesus saith to them: Do you believe that I can do this unto you?  They say to him: Yea, Lord.
29 Then he touched their eyes, saying: According to your faith be it done unto you.
30 And their eyes were opened: and Jesus strictly charged them, saying: See that no man know it.
31 But they going out, spread his fame abroad in all that country.
32 And when they were gone out, *behold they brought to him a dumb man, possessed with a devil.
33 And when the devil was cast out, the dumb man spoke, and the multitude wondered, saying: The like was never seen in Israel.
34 But the Pharisees said: He casteth out devils by the prince of the devils.
35 *And Jesus went about all the cities, and towns, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing every disease, and every infirmity.
36 And seeing the multitudes, he had compassion on them: because they were distressed, and lying as sheep having no shepherd.
37 Then he saith to his disciples:* The harvest indeed is great, but the labourers are few.
38 Pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he send forth labourers into his harvest.

Prayer Against Evil: Our Lord Jesus Christ taught us to pray


Our Lord Jesus Christ taught us to pray -
Mt:6:9-13:9 ¶ Thus therefore shall you pray: Our Father who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name.
10 Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.
11 Give us this day our supersubstantial bread.
12 And forgive us our debts, as we also forgive our debtors.
13 And lead us not into temptation. But deliver us from evil. Amen. 
(DRV)

Not only did Our Lord Jesus Christ teach us to pray that we be delivered from evil (the evil one and all of it's minions), but He gave us power over the evil spirits.
Lk:9:1:1 ¶ Then calling together the twelve apostles, he gave them power and authority over all devils and to cure diseases. (DRV)
The Apostles following Our Lord Jesus Christ's teaching, taught us to have nothing to do with idolatry and sorcery and magic (which is what the verse below refers to) which is the demons and devils and practices of paganism .
Acts:15:29:
29 That you abstain from things sacrificed to idols and from blood and from things strangled and from fornication: from which things keeping yourselves, you shall do well. Fare ye well. (DRV)

The risen Jesus Christ prophesies of those who will not turn from the demons and devils and practices of paganism.
Rv:9:21:
21 Neither did they penance from their murders nor from their sorceries nor from their fornication nor from their thefts. (DRV)

We are to have nothing to do with the demons and devils and practices of paganism - and those who are part of that for they have chosen eternal death (damnation) for themselves.
2Cor:2:14-17:14 Now thanks be to God, who always maketh us to triumph in Christ Jesus and manifesteth the odour of his knowledge by us in every place.
15 For we are the good odour of Christ unto God, in them that are saved and in them that perish.
16 To the one indeed the odour of death unto death: but to the others the odour of life unto life. And for these things who is so sufficient?
17 For we are not as many, adulterating the word of God: but with sincerity: but as from God, before God, in Christ we speak.
(DRV)

Instead we are to remain apart from the demons and devils and practices of paganism and those who are part of that.
2Cor:6:14-18:14 Bear not the yoke with unbelievers. For what participation hath justice with injustice? Or what fellowship hath light with darkness?
15 And what concord hath Christ with Belial? Or what part hath the faithful with the unbeliever?
16 And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? For you are the temple of the living God: as God saith: I will dwell in them and walk among them. And I will be their God: and they shall be my people.
17 Wherefore: Go out from among them and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing:
18 And I will receive you. And will be a Father to you: and you shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.
(DRV)

Since we have been delivered from the power of darkness -
Col:1:13:
13 Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness and hath translated us into the kingdom of the Son of his love, (DRV)

Our first rank of prayer is against evil and the evil powers so that we remain apart from the infidelity of paganism and others are delivered therefrom into the kingdom of Our Only Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. For Our Lord Jesus Christ lives and teaches us that there is no communion of the kingdom of God and paganism, nor can there ever be.
Jn:1:5:
5 ¶ And the light shineth in darkness: and the darkness did not comprehend it. (DRV)

Therefore by the power of the Cross of Christ (Jn:3:14) we Pray Against Evil and those who chose to be part of that and the wrath of God remains on them -
Jn:3:14-21,36:
14 And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the desert, so must the Son of man be lifted up:
15 That whosoever believeth in him may not perish, but may have life everlasting.
16 For God so loved the world, as to give his only begotten Son: that whosoever believeth in him may not perish, but may have life everlasting.
17 For God sent not his Son into the world, to judge the world: but that the world may be saved by him.
18 He that believeth in him is not judged. But he that doth not believe is already judged: because he believeth not in the name of the only begotten Son of God.
19 And this is the judgment: Because the light is come into the world and men loved darkness rather than the light: for their works were evil.
20 For every one that doth evil hateth the light and cometh not to the light, that his works may not be reproved.
21 But he that doth truth cometh to the light, that his works may be made manifest: because they are done in God.
36 He that believeth in the Son hath life everlasting: but he that believeth not the Son shall not see life: but the wrath of God abideth on him.
(DRV)

The early Church did the same, they Prayed Against Evil and the practitioners thereof, and the Church has always done this. From the Liturgy of St. Mark:
Bless our meetings, O Lord.
Utterly uproot all idolatry from the world.
Crush under our feet Satan.
Humble now, as at all times, the enemies of Thy Church.
Lay bare their pride.
Speedily show them their weakness.
Bring to naught the wicked plots they contrive against us.
Arise, O Lord, and let Thine enemies be scattered, and let all who hate Thy holy name be put to flight.
