13,000 Teens Complete Hamas Training Camps to Emulate ‘Suicide Martyrs’
By The Times of Israel
The Hamas government in Gaza celebrated the graduation on Monday of paramilitary camps geared at training high-school children “to follow in the footsteps of the suicide martyrs.” The camps, titled “the pioneers of liberation,” are run by Hamas’s ministries of education and interior. Some 13,000 students in grades 10-12 participated in the one-week training camps this year, compared to 5,000 last year when the program was launched, Israeli sources with knowledge of the program said.
The corps of instructors consists mainly of active members of Hamas’ security forces, and the curriculum includes weapons training, first aid, self defense,marching exercises and “security awareness” classes on identifying Israeli spies.
Hamas Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh, Interior Minister Fathi Hammad and Education Minister Usama Mzeini attended the graduation ceremony, each delivering fiery speeches stressing the importance of military training in
developing a new generation of Palestinian combatants.
“Beware this generation,” Haniyeh said, addressing Israel. “This is a generation which knows no fear. It is the generation of the missile, the tunnel and the suicide operations.”
The Hamas prime minister added that female trainers are also on staff “to oversee the training of the young women to follow in the footsteps of the female suicide operatives.”
Hammad, the interior minister, said the training was in preparation for the coming war with Israel. “This generation is a sapling from God on earth. It will harvest the enemies of God and be the pride of all nations,” he said.
Hamdi Shaqura, deputy director of program affairs at the Palestinian Center for Human Rights, a Gazabased watchdog, said that his organization issued no statement on the training. “To the best of my knowledge no other organization in Gaza issued a statement either,” he told The Times of Israel.
Omar Dawabha, an eleventh-grader who took part in the training, was quoted on the website of Hamas' interior ministry saying that “he learned how to safeguard our rights and principles.” Another student, Mohammed Abu Nar, addressed the Al-Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem at the graduation ceremony. “We are the pioneers of liberation, we are coming to purify you from the Zionists,” he said.
Israel Slams Obama-Led Nuke Talks With Iran As A “Historical Mistake”…
We always knew Obama was going to throw Israel under the bus.
Jerusalem (AFP) – Israeli Defence Minister Moshe Yaalon said on Saturday that a landmark deal on Iran’s nuclear programme under discussion with world powers is a “historical mistake”.
“An agreement now, in the current conditions, is a historical mistake that will allow the bellicose regime in Tehran to pursue its dangerous nuclear programme and its ambition to spread terror and to undermine regimes in the Middle East and the entire world,” Yaalon said.
He urged world powers holding talks with Iran in Geneva on Saturday to be “intransigent” with the Islamic republic, in comments echoed by Justice Minister Tzipi Livni.
“There is no need to hurry to sign an agreement that will not reach its objectives, when a much more favourable agreement could be signed given the pressure Iran is under,” Livni said in a statement.
The proposed agreement — seen as a first step ahead of further talks on a final deal — would see Iran freeze parts of its nuclear programme for as long as six months in exchange for some relief from the sanctions battering its economy.

Op-Ed: Israel Turns 65: Playing the Arab Name Game
Monday, April 15, 2013
Any group can divide itself into several sub-groups and demand a nation for each one. The Jews have only one state.

Move over, Monopoly. Scadoodle, Scrabble…
Have you played the "Arab Name Game"? You know--the one much of the rest of the world, including recent American Presidents, insists that Israel partake in?
Much of the world--including recent American presidents--insists that there must be a two-statesolution to the Arab-Israeli conflict. Forget the fact that that's not what the Arabs themselves really have in mind, but whatever…
Please pay close attention to what follows because, in reality, in discussing an alleged “two state solution,” President Obama and others playright into the hands of the Arabs’ deliberate name game deception.
You see, there have always been two legitimate parties to this conflict–Arabs and Jews.
Yet, even the most allegedly “moderate” of Arabs insist on getting not just one share of the originalApril 25, 1920 Mandate of Palestine pie, but two. Recall that the originalMandate included the modern Arab state of Jordan--before it was separated in 1922.
"Palestine" was the name the Roman Emperor, Hadrian, bestowed on the land of Judaea to rub salt into the wound after the Jews’ second costly revolt for their freedom and independence. It was named for the Jews’ historic enemies, the non-Semitic /non-Arab Philistines, the "Sea People" who arrived from the islands near Crete. You can see a Judea Capta coin issued after the first revolt and what ancient Rome called the land prior to the Bar Kochba rebellion on the web. Writings of contemporary Roman historians such as Tacitus, Pliny, Dio Cassius, and Josephus are filled with such accounts.
Even in the most “moderate” Arabs’ count, they demand one portion for “Arabs” and another for “Palestinians.” They insist that, in this geographical addition problem, 1 + 1 = 3, not 2.
If Jews indulged in this same deception, they could call themselves by other names and then demand dozens of states too. As could Kurds and others as well… “Hey, we’re not really Kurds–we’re Irbilians, Mosulians, Kirkukians, Sulimanyians, Mehabadians, Qamishlians, Diyarbakirians, and so forth.”
Get the picture?
No, formerly stateless Jews and currently truly stateless peoples, like Kurds and Imazighen ("Berbers"), are not the same as deliberately renamed, allegedly stateless “Palestinians.” The latter are part of the greater Arab family which now has nearly two dozen states to call its own. Furthermore, the latter have largely been carved out by the conquest of mostly non-Arab peoples’ lands--lands in which other native peoples’ very languages and cultures have often been outlawed in the forced Arabization process.
Here's an oft-cited quote from PLO executive committee member Zuheir Mohsen, on March 31, 1977, in the Dutch newspaper Trouw:
"The Palestinian people does not exist. The creation of a Palestinian state is only a means for continuing our struggle against the state of Israel for our Arab unity. In reality today there is no difference between Jordanians, Palestinians, Syrians and Lebanese... Only for political and tactical reasons do we speak today about the existence of a Palestinian people, since Arab national interests demand that we posit the existence of a distinct 'Palestinian people' to oppose Zionism..."
Now, are there different Arab groups within that greater Arab family?
Sure, just like there are many different sub-groups within the Jewish or Kurdish or Amazigh families of nations.
But the possession of multiple sub-groups does not give arabs the right to deny any and all other peoples their own share of justice in the region. Yet, that has always been the Arab name game plan–and what the American President promoted in such speeches as the one he gave on the eve of Passover in Jerusalem.
1 + 1 = 2… not 3.
Arab nationalism is entitled to one share of the Palestine pie–not two. Arabs must decide among themselves how they want to share rule over their one part of “Palestine.”
Whether this translates into a merger of parts of Judea and Samaria with Jordan (the most sensible, yet unlikely, solution), or whether a tiny, second Arab state is created in Gaza, Judea, and Samaria after Israel gets the absolutely essential compromise in the territories promised by the final draft of UNSC Resolution 242, the choice must not leave the sole state of the Jews as vulnerable as in the days prior to the 1967 war when Israel was a mere 9-15-mile wide rump state of a nation.
As the over three millennia-old nation of the Jews approaches its modern re-birthday, it must resolve to do a much better job at getting this message out to the rest of the world.
Kerry: Israel's Security 'Top Priority'
by Arutz Sheva Staff
US Secretary of State John Kerry insisted Thursday that Israel's security was a top priority in talks with Iran on its controversial nuclear program after an initial deal was signed.
"I can't emphasize enough that Israel's security in this negotiation is at the top of our agenda," Kerry told reporters after a meeting with Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu in Jerusalem.
"And the United States will do everything in our power to make certain that Iran's nuclear program of weaponization possibilities is terminated."
Kerry's remarks were aimed at calming tensions with Israel over the interim deal reached in Geneva on November 24, which saw Iran agree to roll back parts of its nuclear program in return for limited relief from Western sanctions, and comes as polls indicate growing distrust of the Obama administration's foreign policy by Israelis. The deal was roundly condemned by Netanyahu, who called it a "historic mistake".
"We agreed on what the goal of the final status agreement (with Iran) ought to be, and in the days ahead we will consult very closely and continuously with our Israeli friends in order to bring about a comprehensive agreement that can withstand everybody's test," Kerry said.
Israel had repeatedly warned against entering an agreement with Iran, urging world powers to keep up the pressure of sanctions and threatening to carry out unilateral military action against Tehran if necessary.
Kerry landed in Israel late on Wednesday for a trip aimed at giving momentum to peace talks between Israel and the Palestinian Authority (PA), which have made little apparent headway since they began under his patronage in late July.
In late November, senior Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO) official Nabil Shaath revealed that the PA is only staying in the peace talks to release all 104 terrorist prisoners promised as a "gesture."
US officials have said the focus during this visit by Kerry would be on Israel's security arrangements under any deal with the PA. However, they refused to confirm media reports citing unnamed State Department officials which claim that Kerry was to present Netanyahu with a proposal aimed at encouraging Israel to drop demands for a continued IDF presence in the strategically-important Jordan Valley.
Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu will reportedly receive the proposal through John R. Allen, the former American commander in Afghanistan and a retired Marine general who serves as an adviser to Kerry on Middle Eastern affairs.
Deputy Defense Minister Danny Danon meanwhile urged the PM to remain firm on insisting Israel retain control of the Jordan Valley under any agreement.
"Even if the Americans are our friends we will tell them: Sorry, we are not going to do everything you want, we are not going to give up (security) principles which are essential for us, even if it means the negotiations won't move forward and there won't be a nice ceremony at the White House," he said in an interview with army radio.
Iran: We did not agree to dismantle anything FM Mohammad Javad Zarif claims Washington has mischaracterized Tehran’s concessions in the interim nuclear agreement

“We did not agree to dismantle anything,” Mohammad Javad Zarif told CNN in an interview on Wednesday, charging that the Obama administration had created a false impression in the language it used to describe the six-month agreement.
“The White House tries to portray it as basically a dismantling of Iran’s nuclear program,” he said, speaking from Davos, Switzerland, where he is attending the World Economic Forum. “If you find a single, a single word, that even closely resembles dismantling or could be defined as dismantling in the entire text, then I would take back my comment.”
Zarif repeated that “we are not dismantling any centrifuges, we’re not dismantling any equipment, we’re simply not producing, not enriching [uranium] over 5%.”
Both US and Iranian officials have tried to make the interim agreement palatable domestically. With the Iranians calling the nuclear deal a victory, and Obama officials saying that it essentially freeze’s the Islamic Republic’s nuclear program.
According to a White House fact sheet released in November, the interim deal mandates that Iran halt all uranium enrichment beyond 5% and “dismantle the technical connections required to enrich above 5%.”
In Washington, congressional aides who had been briefed by administration officials said Wednesday that negotiations over a final nuclear deal with Iran were expected to begin by mid-February.

Ariel Sharon Has Died...A Long Deceased Jewish Rabbi Said After Sharon's Death, The 'Messiah' Would ReturnFox News
Ariel 'Arik' Sharon: 26 February 1928 - 11 January 2014For many American's, this means nothing...until you read who he was, and the value of a long passed Rabbi's note, that was to be opened a year after his, the Rabbi's, death...
But first, who was Ariel Sharon?
A look at the remarkable life and career of Israel's 11th Prime Minister, who passed away Saturday with his family by his side.
By Ari Soffer and Gil Ronen
After eight years in a vegetative state following a severe stroke, former Israeli Prime Minister Ariel "Arik" Sharon has passed away at the age of 85.
Although his condition had remained relatively stable for several years following the massive stroke which left him incapacitated in January 2006, the past few weeks saw a rapid deterioration in the ex-PM's health, as his kidneys and urinary system collapsed. At the start of January doctors confirmed his vital organs were failing and some sources said he had only days to live at most.
But the former premier battled for over a week, before passing away Saturday surrounded by family members at the Sheba Medical Center, where he has been receiving treatment since being transferred from Jerusalem's Hadassah Ein Kerem hospital.
Sharon was widowed twice. His first wife, Margalit, died in a car accident in May 1962. Their son, Gur, died in October 1967, in a tragic accident which occurred as he and a friend were playing with a rifle Sharon kept at his home. After Margalit's death, Sharon married her younger sister, Lily. They had two sons, Omri and Gilad. Lily Sharon died of cancer in 2000.
A son of Jewish refugees from Belarussia (Belarus), Sharon was born in the moshav (agricultural village) of Kfar Malal, in central Israel - then known as British-Mandate Palestine. His family were members of the Mapai movement (the forebearers of the present-day Labor party) and Ariel Scheinermann, as he was then known, began both his political and military careers at an early age, joining the "Hassadeh" Zionist movement at the tender age of 10, and enrolling in the "Gadna" paramilitary youth battalion aged 14.
Those humble beginnings were the start of a 30-year career and meteoric rise within both the military ranks - first within the pre-state Hagana and later the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) - as well as a bumpy yet determined political career which eventually led Sharon to the highest office in the land.
The "Headstrong" Military Hero
Having joined the pre-state Hagana, with the outbreak of the War of Independence in 1947 Ariel Sharon was involved in heavy fighting against the combined Arab forces - both regular armies and irregular paramilitary groups - which had amassed to smother the Jewish state at birth. He was involved in the Battle for Jerusalem among other important military engagements, and was seriously wounded in clashes with the Jordanian Arab Legion during the First Battle for Latrun.
Headstrong - sometimes to the point of recklessness - and ruthless in battle, Sharon quickly earned a reputation as a fierce warrior and eventually as one of Israel's greatest military strategists.
As his success as a soldier gained the attention of his superiors, he rose quickly through the ranks: in 1949 he was appointed as a company commander in the Golani Brigade, and just one year later he was assigned as an intelligence officer for the Central Command, after which he left he military to pursue academic studies.
But in 1951 Israel's first Prime Minister David Ben-Gurion ordered Sharon to return to active service to help found a special forces team known as "Unit 101". Sharon was promoted to the rank of major, and together with just 49 other elite fighters took part in daring reprisal raids against Arab militias, known as fedayeen, which were terrorizing Israeli communities with deadly attacks from their bases in Jordanian, Egyptian, Syrian and other Arab-controlled territories. There, the already decorated soldier became known both for his personal bravery and dogged commitment to the mission at hand, as well as a penchant for actively and aggressively seeking out confrontation with enemy forces, which gave him a reputation as a fierce warrior. The unit is a legendary one to this day, although it existed independently only for six months, before being merged with Paratroopers' Batallion 890, under Sharon's command.
By the time the Suez War of 1956 broke out, Sharon had been placed at the helm of Unit 202, which later became the Paratroopers' Regiment, and gained notoriety in his operations against Egyptian forces which drew criticism from the military establishment due to allegations of recklessness. Thirty-eight of the paratroopers under his command were killed in the heroic battle of the Mitleh Pass, which critics said was unnecessarily initiated by Sharon.
Although that experience temporarily hampered his military career, by the time the Six Day War broke out in 1967 he had climbed to the rank of major general. It was during that war that Ariel Sharon gained wide military acclaim, both in Israel and overseas - American military researchers took a keen interest in his astonishing success as a commander of an armored battalion during Israel's lightening victory against combined forces from more than a dozen Arab armies. The battle Sharon led at Umm Katef and Abu Ageilah, in particular, is considered to be a masterpiece of military strategy.
In 1971, Sharon as Head of Southern Command faced a sever problem in Gaza, which had become a hotbed of terrorism. Following a grenade attack on a Jewish family in which two children were killed, the IDF began an intense counterterrorism campaign. By the end of the year, about 180 terrorists had been killed and around 2,000 had been captured. Gaza was quiet for the next 15 years.
As Head of Southern Command, Sharon attempted futilely to convince the Chief of Staff to dilute the Bar Lev line, which consisted of a string of outposts and fortifications ('maozim') on the bank of the Suez Canal. He argued for the establishment of an alternative line of defense some distance to the east, pointing out that an Egyptian surprise offensive could annihilate the front line and leave Israel open to attack. The top brass refused to heed his warning and his dire prediction was precisely what happened in the Yom Kippur War, in October of 1973.
Sharon had quit active service in the IDF in July of that year, after deciding to enter politics, but was called up as a general in the reserves a day before the war broke out, on October 6.
Ever the maverick, General Sharon arrived at the front in a civilian car, only to lead the Jewish state's spectacular counterattack to the Egyptian and Syrian surprise attack which had initially placed Israel firmly on the back-foot. In a crucial defensive battle on October 14, Sharon's division destroyed 150 of the 250 Egyptian tanks lost. His division was then able to cross the Suez Canal into Egyptian territory, in a move that destroyed Egyptian air defenses and made it possible for the IAF to operate over the Canal. His advance helped cut off the Egyptian Third Army in the Sinai, and led the Egyptians to sue for a ceasefire.
It was in the course of the war that one of the commando fighters under Sharon's command, Yaakov Katz ("Ketzaleh"), was gravely wounded and was on the verge of dying when Sharon ordered a helicopter sent to evacuate him. Katz went on to co-found the community of Beit El and the Arutz Sheva radio station, which later expanded into a news website, and headed the National Union party in the 18th Knesset.
Rise to Power
His military career having reached its apex, the decorated though controversial military hero turned his attention towards politics, having co-founded the Likud party in the year preceding the war.
Sharon's involvement in the establishment of the right-wing Likud - which subscribed to the ideals of Revisionist Zionism - signaled a marked departure from his ideological beginnings in the left-wing, Labor Zionist movement, although he at first struggled to make his mark and briefly, though unsuccessfully, courted left-wing parties as well.
But his vocal and active support of the Gush Emunim movement, which was committed to resettling the ancient Jewish lands of Judea, Samaria and Gaza was a defining moment, gaining him the political recognition within nationalist circles which paved the way for his appointment, in 1981, as Minister of Defense under Prime Minister Menachem Begin.
In the 1982 First Lebanon War, Sharon commanded Israel's operations to root-out Palestinian terrorist groups in Lebanon. But controversy was never far behind. Begin and his confidants, as well as the left-wing, blamed Sharon for the war, and claimed that he had misled Begin into believing, and promising the public, that it would be a short operation and that the IDF would not advance more than 40 kilometers north of the Israel-Lebanon border - the distance required for putting Israel out of the range of the PLO's Katyusha rockets.
The war became a protracted one, however, and the IDF wound up capturing the capital Beirut - far beyond the 40-km line. Sharon's ambitious plan to place Christian ally Bashir Gemayel in charge of Lebanon failed when Gemayel was assassinated. In revenge, the Christian 'Phalanges' militia carried out the infamous massacre of Palestinian Arabs in the Lebanese refugee camps of Sabra and Shatila in 1982. Sharon was indirectly blamed for enabling the Phalanges' operation and eventually was forced to resign.
He successfully sued Time magazine, which falsely claimed in 1983 that Sharon had discussed the need for revenge with Christian leaders before allowing the Phalanges into the refugee camps.
After a short period in the political wilderness, the general-turned-politician made a comeback, serving as Trade and Industry Minister from 1984 to 1990. From 1990 to 1992, he served as Minister of Construction and Housing, with Ketzaleh as his assistant. In this relatively short period of time, over 120,000 new housing units were built, half of them in Jerusalem, Judea and Samaria. Sharon was often referred to as "the bulldozer" as a result of his military toughness, his penchant for construction, and his skill at playing political hardball.
During the first government of Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu (1996-1999), Sharon used his position as Minister for National Infrastructure for another massive push for Jewish resettlement in Judea, Samaria and Gaza, once again firmly establishing his right-wing credentials and paving his towards leadership of the Likud: in 1998 he took the coveted position of Foreign Minister.
After Likud was defeated by Labor under Ehud Barak in May of 1999, Sharon took over leadership of Likud. Barak's term was cut short with the start of the "Second Intifada".
In 2000, during his brief time as leader of the Opposition, Sharon once again courted controversy with a high-profile visit to the Temple Mount in Jerusalem. Despite being Judaism's holiest site and technically under Israeli sovereignty, the Waqf Islamic trust administers the Temple Mount, and Muslim leaders have long insisted on maintaining the sole rights to worship there, viewing any Jewish visits as a "provocation".
Sharon's ascent to the Mount on September 28, 2000, was seen as a challenge to the status quo and it was seized upon by the Palestinian Authority and other terrorist groups as a trigger for the bloody terror war of 2000-2005, also known as the "Second Intifada". Though his visit was - and still is - often cited as the "cause" of the violence, evidence uncovered during the war itself revealed that the Intifada was planned long in advance.
As ceaseless waves of bloody attacks by Arab nationalist and Islamist terrorist groups continued to claim Israeli lives - and in particular, against the shadow of the notorious Park Hotel Massacre during the Jewish festival of Pesach (Passover) on March 27, 2002 - Sharon ordered a massive counterterrorism operation to dismantle the Palestinian terrorist infrastructure. Named Operation Defensive Shield, it was the largest Israeli military mobilization in Judea and Samaria since 1967, and succeeded in drastically reducing the number of terrorist attacks emanating from the area.
The operation also added to Sharon's notoriety in anti-Israel circles, where he was branded a "war criminal", despite the exceptional lengths taken to avoid civilian casualties, and the numerous casualties the IDF suffered as a result.
But the years following 2002 would see yet another political about-turn, as Prime Minister Sharon endorsed calls for the "Palestinian state" in Judea, Samaria and Gaza, committing to the US-led "Road Map to Peace" and eventually conceiving a plan that was to radically redefine both his own political stance and the Israeli political scene in general: the "Disengagement" from Gaza.
That move saw the destruction of all 21 Jewish communities in the Gaza Strip and four others in northern Samaria (Shomron), along with the expulsion of their 10,000 or so residents. It was a move which shocked his former supporters on the right wing - the "bulldozer" had suddenly begun flattening his own creations - and eventually forced him out of the Likud party to found Kadima. Sharon's rivals claim that the Disengagement was the result of attempts to deflect allegations of political corruption, saying he agreed to the pullout from Gaza as part of a deal with the leftist Prosecution, in return for the Prosecution's dropping of criminal charges against his son, Gilad, in a financial scandal known as the Greek Island Affair.
On December 18, 2005, Sharon suffered a mild stroke and was briefly hospitalized, but was discharged shortly afterwards. On January 4, 2006, he suffered a second, severe stroke, which left him incapacitated. He slipped into a coma and was replaced by Ehud Olmert as Prime Minister. Despite hopes at the time that he could be revived, Ariel Sharon would remain in a coma until his death some eight years later.
As a Christian, and to Jew's, what does this mean to us?....What were the written words of a Rabbi that were so vital he called for them to be opened, only after a year from his death?
Ariel Sharon has died. One of the Jewish world’s most revered religious leaders, Rabbi Yitzhak Kaduri, claimed just before his own death in 2006 that he was visited by the Messiah. According to Rabbi Kaduri, he was told that the Messiah would not return until after the death of Ariel Sharon. Kaduri also wrote a note revealing the name of the Messiah that was not to be opened until one year after his death. In 2007 the note was opened, spelling out Yehoshua as the name of the Messiah. Yehoshua is theophoric (bearing the name of God) and is the longform version of the name of Yeshua (salvation), or Jesus. According to some, it also means “YHWH’s Gift” …
Sharon’s death is of interest to mystics in Israel as well as prophecy buffs around the world because of the prediction by Kaduri. Carl Gallups authored the book ‘The Rabbi Who Found Messiah’ and inspired a movie on the subject of the same name in late 2013.
In 2007, Kaduri, the most famous rabbi in Israel’s modern history, at 108 years old, left a cryptic death note revealing the name of the long-awaited Messiah. Within a year after the rabbi’s death, the note was reported to have been verified as authentic by some of Kaduri’s closest followers and then placed on Kaduri’s own website.
The purported Kaduri message proclaimed that Messiah’s name was Yehoshua, or Jesus.
It shocked the religious world.
Shortly thereafter the furor began. The note immediately disappeared from Kaduri’s website. The media refused to report further on the matter.
The Kaduri family, and several others close to the Kaduri ministry, began to claim that the note was a forgery or a mere fabrication – a cruel joke.
Gallups, an American pastor and former police officer, used his detective skills to piece the mystery together in ’The Rabbi Who Found Messiah: The Story of Yitzhak Kaduri and His Pr...,’ a book and movie combination that has reignited the controversy surrounding his prediction about the Messiah and Sharon.
Chuck Missler, founder of Koinonia House ministry, says that in the book, Gallups ‘explodes one of the biggest bombshells of our lifetime. The implications of these astonishing declarations from the most venerated ultra-orthodox rabbi in Israel impacts every one of us – not just those of the traditional Jewish faith. This is a must-read for anyone who takes God seriously.’
‘The only prophetic utterance of Kaduri concerning Ariel Sharon was that Messiah, would not appear until Ariel Sharon had died,’ said Gallups. ‘Within a little over two months after speaking these prophetic words Sharon was in a coma and Kaduri himself died.’
The Kaduri prophecy did not name a specific time or date in which Messiah would be revealed — only that it would not happen until after Sharon had died. No man knows of the 'exact' time...but for sure, each day we do get closer.
‘Many who have examined Kaduri’s prophecy have interpreted the urgent feel of it to mean that Messiah might appear very shortly after Sharon’s death,’ said Gallups. ‘This sense of urgency was strengthened by the fact that for several years prior to his death, Kaduri made several pronouncements of Messiah’s imminent return.
