And you, though a wild olive shoot, have been grafted in among the others and now share the nourishing sap from the olive root, Romans 11 v17
The "Old Testament" of the Christian Bible is the Jewish Tanakh, and the "New Testament" is built on these Jewish scriptures.
Jesus is a Jew. He was born, lived and died as a Jew. He was born King of the Jews and died King of the Jews.
Jesus taught as a Jewish Rabbi.
We are familiar with the Christian holidays.
God promised the patriarchs of Israel, "He who blesses you, I will bless and he who curses you, I will curse."
Jesus is coming back to Jerusalem
In these pages we look at what went wrong, the good things we are missing, the way things should be, and how Israel and the Jews are key to world events as they unfold, in these end-times .
This website explores the relationship between Christianity and Judaism (the Jewish faith), including Messianic Judaism. It explains the Jewish roots of Christianity, and the continuity of revelation and worship through Jewish and into Christian scriptures. It looks forward, with the Jews, to the coming of their Messiah and ours. It is possible to span the gulf that opened over the centuries by realizing where we stand. The apostle Paul likened non Jewish Christians to wild olive branches grafted into the cultivated olive tree of Israel. Since this is the basis of our acceptance by the God of Israel, wildolive explores the implications of this relationship.
An understanding of Hebrew and Jewish culture, tradition, faith and worship can add so much to even familiar Bible stories and celebrations.
This was nearly all lost due to replacement theology so we look at all the Jewish Feasts and their relevance and importance for the Christian.
We want to see how much can be recovered, and how we Christians can draw nourishment from our Jewish roots.
The unfolding of God's purposes in World History centres around Israel, Jerusalem and the Jews. The Christian can not afford to ignorantly follow the prevailing world-view of events in the "Middle East" and side with those who oppose God's purposes and the people He chose to bring salvation to the world. We need to understand and act upon "the signs of the times" revealed in Israel, so we look at the politics and media coverage of Israel and the forces ranged against her.
We seek to draw practical conclusions for ways the Christian can be in God's will concerning these matters, and to point the way to the many resources which are available for those who seek to draw from their roots in God's olive tree.
Awareness of the importance of Israel is not the only thing that much of the church has lost. Healing is an important part of the Gospel that few Christians believe in, having become more sophisticated and educated in the world's wisdom. See also Unbelief.

A top court of the European Union has annulled the bloc's decision to keep the Palestinian Islamist movement Hamas on a list of terrorist groups. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-middle-east-30511569
These are the non - terrorists !?

Palestinian official Ziad Abu Ein died after a scuffle with Israeli forces during a demonstration in the West Bank on Wednesday, December 10, 2014 . Abu Ein, a convicted terrorist, was appointed by the PA to organize campaigns against Jewish settlements in the West Bank,
PA and Fatah: Israel killed Ziad Abu Ein "intentionally" and "in cold blood"
Abbas: "A savage attack... a barbaric act that cannot be passed over in silence or accepted"
Fatah Central Committee member Sultan Abu Al-Einein: "Israel crossed all red lines with its abominable crime" "The cold-blooded murder" will not be "passed over in silence" "Fatah will set fire to the ground - which Ziad Abu Ein redeemed with his blood - beneath the occupiers' feet" - http://palwatch.org/main.aspx?fi=157&doc_id=13361
PA President Mahmoud Abbas lauded Abu Ein as a “martyr,” while PA official Hanan Ashrawi accused Israel of having carried out an “extrajudicial killing.”
A British television news reporter has revealed that Palestinian demonstrators near the West Bank village of Turmusaya prevented an Israeli medic from providing aid to a Palestinian Authority official who collapsed after he shoved and verbally abused Israeli officers on the scene. This objective report from Sky News allows you to evaluate what happened before the Blood Libel system got to work. Note the footage he doesn't have is available here and shows the time between the confrontation and Abu Ein's collapse.
Palestinians blocked an Israeli medic from assisting PA official Ziad Abu Ein after he furiously confronted Israeli officers.
In a live report for the UK’s Sky News broadcaster, Middle East correspondent Tom Rayner reported that Ziad Abu Ein was lying on the ground “unconscious” after the clash – although separate footage shot by Kremlin broadcaster RT displayed Abu Ein conscious and sitting up after his altercation with the IDF officers. Roi Sharon of Israel’s Channel 1o broadcaster, said that Abu Ein collapsed some five minutes after his confrontation with the Israeli Border Police.
A top member of the Fatah leadership said that the autopsy of a senior Palestinian official showed he died after being struck and inhaling tear gas during a clash with Israeli forces a day earlier. An official Israeli Health Ministry statement disputed the claim, however, and said Ziad Abu Ein died from a heart attack brought on by stress during the confrontation. the autopsy showed Abu Ein had a pre-existing heart condition and may have died after suffering pressure to his neck during the scuffle with the soldiers.
“[Abu Ein’s] death was caused by blockage of a coronary artery due to hemorrhaging beneath an arteriosclerotic plaque,” a health ministry statement read, further explaining that “the bleeding could have been induced by stress.”
The statement went on to explain that Abu Ein “suffered from an ischemic heart disease,” and that “blood vessels in his heart were found to be over 80% blocked by plaque.”
The ministry further stated that old scars in Abu Ein’s body indicated he had suffered from a myocardial infarction in the past, adding that “the poor condition of [Abu Ein’s] heart caused him to be more sensitive to stress.”
There was also evidence of an attempted resuscitation, the ministry said.
Autopsy appears to confirm the death was due to a heart attack brought on by stress - (getting too excited, as can be clearly seen in the video)
A request from the Simon Wiesenthal Centre
As you know, there has been an unprecedented spike in anti-Semitic violence and rhetoric across Europe. Now, we are faced with vote after vote in European Parliaments endorsing a Palestinian state without borders.
Five European Countries: England, Spain, France, Sweden, and Ireland with Belgium likely to follow, have already voted to endorse a Palestinian state - bypassing direct negotiations with the State of Israel. The European Parliament will soon be voting as well.
These unprecedented, unilateral moves, which they say have been taken in the name of peace, in fact do great harm. Not only do they embolden the Palestinians not to negotiate with Israel, but they also strengthen terrorist organizations like Hamas – who refuse to recognize the very existence of the Jewish state.
Please Sign this petition: Demand that each of these Parliaments pass a long overdue resolution requiring Hamas, which the European Union lists as a terrorist organization, finally revoke its anti-Semitic charter, which also calls for the destruction of Israel.
And if European parliaments truly care about democracy and human rights, they will finally act against Hamas’ 1988 founding charter, which says, among other things:
“Israel will exist and will continue to exist until Islam will obliterate it, just as it obliterated others before it … They [Jews] strived to amass great and substantive material wealth which they devoted to the realisation of their dream. With their money, they took control of the world media . . . [S]tirred revolutions . . . . They were behind the French Revolution, the Communist revolution. . . . They were behind World War II, through which they made huge financial gains by trading in armaments, and paved the way for the establishment of their state.”
Failure to pass this new resolution will only confirm to friends of Israel around the world that a double standard is being practiced by many European parliamentarians who apparently are only willing to accept the validity of the Arab narrative in the Middle East. Such a recourse would be a blow to the cause of peace and to the prospects of a two-state solution.
Israeli house demolitions effectively decrease terrorist attacks, according to a new study.
contrary to the widely held belief that punitive house demolitions do not dissuade would-be terrorists.
The study, “Counter-Suicide-Terrorism: Evidence from House Demolitions,” to be published in the January issue of the Journal of Politics, found that Israel’s policy of demolishing the homes of Palestinian terrorists causes “an immediate, significant decrease in the number of suicide attacks.” Co-authored by researchers at Northwestern University and the Hebrew University of Jerusalem.
In November, Israel resumed its controversial policy of demolishing the homes of terrorists when it razed the family home of Abdelrahman Al-Shaludi, who plowed his car into a Jerusalem bus stop in October killing a young woman and a three-month-old baby. Police shot him dead at the scene. Since that time, Israel has destroyed the family homes of several other Palestinian terrorists.
Mohammed has become the top boys' name chosen by parents in Britain after a huge surge in popularity for Arabic names generally, according to new research.

PA chairman has been stoking the fires, accusing Israel of changing the status quo on the Temple Mount and "judaizing it", in spite of strong denials from the Israeli government.
The Islamist terror militia Hamas called for a "Day of Rage" against Israel, imploring Palestinians in the West Bank to clash with Israeli security forces "in solidarity with the Aksa Mosque and Jerusalem intifada."
Abbas condemned murder of 4 Jews only because of international pressure
To justify why Abbas condemned this morning's murders, Fatah aired a video in which Arafat's bodyguard explained that Abbas' condemnation was just like those of Arafat, who was lying when he condemned terror attacks.
Contradictory messages from the PA in response to murder of Jewish worshippers: Abbas condemned the murders while his advisor and Fatah praised them
Abbas' office: "The President's office condemns the murder of the worshippers"
Abbas' advisor about the murders: "heroic operation"

"Run [them] over, destroy,
annihilate, blow them up;
Don't let the Zionist live long
O Al-Aqsa, we're your defenders
O son of Jerusalem, cry 'Allah is great'!"

Blaming Israel for Palestinian violence is racist: it denies that Arabs are moral agents
The media response to the Jerusalem killings betrays a widespread assumption: that Palestinians are "noble savages" who are not responsible for their actions. www.telegraph.co.uk
- attention has strayed from the most important actor in the region, Iran.
(AP) The UN General Assembly overwhelmingly approved an Arab-backed resolution Tuesday calling on Israel to renounce possession of nuclear weapons and put its nuclear facilities under international oversight.
The resolution, adopted in a 161-5 vote, noted that Israel is the only Middle Eastern country that is not party to the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons. It called on Israel to “accede to that treaty without further delay, not to develop, produce test or otherwise acquire nuclear weapons, to renounce possession of nuclear weapons” and put its nuclear facilities under the safeguard of the UN’s International Atomic Energy Agency. The United States and Canada were among four countries that joined Israel in opposing the measure, while 18 countries abstained.
Obama recently sent a secret letter to Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khamenei – without informing Israel – urging Iran to reach a nuclear deal. The White House confirmed that Obama had sent the letter to Khamenei.
An anonymous "senior Obama administration" official told The Atlantic correspondent Jeffrey Goldberg that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was a "chickenshit." apparently because he is "afraid to start wars" — (direct quotation!) Two, three years ago, this was a possibility. But ultimately he couldn’t bring himself to pull the trigger. It was a combination of our pressure and his own unwillingness to do anything dramatic. Now it’s too late.
In other words, when Israel planned to hit Iranian nuclear facilities back in 2012 and the attack was vetoed by the Obama administration, Netanyahu should have proceeded despite the veto.
CNN discusses Media Bias Against Israel with Matti Freedman - What he calls a disproportionate focus on Israel
Associated Press Accused of Bias Against Israel - AP denies charges by former reporter - Their prejudice, Friedman wrote, even impacts editorial decisions about who to talk to. In the AP’s case, “explicit orders” were given to reporters around 2008 “to never quote” the pro-Israel research organization NGO Monitor, or its founder, Gerald Steinberg. “In my time as an AP writer moving through the local conflict, with its myriad lunatics, bigots, and killers, the only person I ever saw subjected to an interview ban was this professor,” Friedman wrote.
U.K. Sweden Ireland, Spain and France have recognised Palestine as a state.
Swiss government convenes a conference to discuss the status quo in the Palestinian territories
Israel says the move brought into question Bern’s historic neutrality.
Switzerland has invited states party to the Fourth Geneva Convention to attend a summit to discuss the situation in the Gaza Strip, West Bank and East Jerusalem. All 196 UN member states are signatories to the Fourth Geneva Convention, and in April 2014 the Palestinian Authority signed accession to the treaty.
“The role of the depositor obliges Switzerland to manage in a neutral and apolitical manner,” the Israeli Foreign Ministry said in a statement. “The decision of the Swiss government to hold this conference raises serious doubt concerning its commitment to these principles as it lends a hand to politicizing the Geneva Convention”
Israel's Foreign Ministry said it was reevaluating Switzerland’s stances on other international humanitarian law issues in light of its decision to hold the meeting.
The European Union’s new foreign affairs chief Federica Mogherini called for the establishment of a Palestinian state, saying that is the ultimate goal and "this is the position of all the European Union,” as the world “cannot afford” another war in Gaza.
The Palestinian Authority estimates that 134 countries have now recognized Palestine as a state, although the number is disputed and several recognitions by what are now European Union member states date to the Soviet era.
However - Germany
Germany, Israel's closest European ally, has made clear it won't follow the lead of UK, Sweden, Ireland etc. Chancellor, Angela Merkel said that Berlin supports a two-state solution and "we see how difficult that is, so we also believe that unilateral recognition of the Palestinian state won't move us forward" toward that goal.
The Dutch join Germany in rejecting unilateral recognition of a "Palestinian" state.
Denmark will vote on a resolution instructing the government to recognize the State of Palestine and establish diplomatic relations, following the lead of other European nations. The Danish parliament will hold the first debate on December 11, then vote in early January, according to the EU Observer.
Caroline B. Glick, the Post’s senior contributing editor, retorted that they were a “statement of contempt for our intelligence.” “I consider Europe’s keen interest in the Middle East, specifically Israel, to be an obsession,” she said. “It is an obsession that Jews have seen from Europeans from the time of Jesus.”

Israel is facing threats from Multiple Fronts - new page
BAGHDAD, Iraq (AFP) — The tide is beginning to turn on the Islamic State group, analysts say, with the jihadists losing ground in Iraq and only able to hold on to their positions in Syria. Harassed by air strikes and facing better coordination among their opponents, IS fighters have suffered a string of defeats in Iraq and had to retreat from some areas they had conquered in June and the following months.

Gazan's have their homes destroyed and are expelled.
Why no clamour of condemnation from the supporters of the Palestinians?
"Hey no problem: Israel isn't doing it - Egypt is."
Now being threatened by ISIS / ISIL. Jordan has lost control over much of its territory. Western intelligence sources said Jordan has become a hub for rebel operations against the regime of Syrian President Bashar Assad.
Sunni jihadist groups fighting in neighboring Iraq and Syria are said to be setting up networks inside Lebanon and plan to move the conflict there in the near future. Other Lebanese analysts have warned that jihadist groups might attempt to infiltrate into Lebanon and fire into Israel from Hezbollah controlled territory in order to provoke the Jewish State into attacking Hezbollah, thus pitting two of the enemies of the Sunni jihadist groups against each other. - ICEJ
Iranian backed Hizbollah are believed to be digging industriously into Israel, like Hamas did in Gaza. See Melanie Philips article Melanie Philips - explains here
Rockets have been fired into Israel - (Not by Lebanon or Hizbollah; they say). As the Lebanon government does nothing to restrain Hezbollah, Israel has stated that provocative actions will be treated as emanating from Lebanon, and responses will be against Lebanon.
