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 Christian's roots in Israel
shared with the Jews
The "Old Testament" of the Christian Bible is the Jewish Tanakh, and the "New Testament" is built on these Jewish scriptures.
Why do some Christians dislike and ignore the Old Testament ?
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.
How can some Christians say, "I don't like Jews" ?
Jesus taught as a Jewish Rabbi.
Why do many try and understand his teaching using Greek philosophy?
We are familiar with the Christian holidays.
Why don't we understand the Jewish feasts and holy days that Jesus celebrated ?
God promised the patriarchs of Israel, "He who blesses you, I will bless and he who curses you, I will curse."
Why do so few Christians support Israel and the Jews in informed prayer ?
Jesus is coming back to Jerusalem
How can Christians side with those seeking to destroy Israel and seize 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.

Difficult decisions for Peace
Sacrifices of Peace - By Daniel Greenfield - Posted: 06 Aug 2013
G-d did not want human sacrifices. The peace process does.
After the handshake with Arafat in the Rose Garden led to a wave of terrorist attacks, Prime Minister Rabin invented a new sacrifice to describe the dead Israelis murdered by the Muslim terrorists who had been permitted to enter Israel, to form armies, to train openly and to kill openly. Korbanot Shalom. Sacrifices of peace.

Iran is still the number one threat to Israel
Bomb two weeks away?
"Iran could produce enough weapons-grade uranium to build an atomic weapon within two weeks and has, “in a certain way,” already reached the point of no return in its nuclear program, a former senior International Atomic Energy Association official said yesterday," reports the Times of Israel 29/10/13
Netanyahu attempts to warn EU about Iran
An apparent desire on the part of several European governments to move towards dismantling the regime of sanctions against Iran's renegade nuclear program and normalize relations with the clerical regime in Teheran is viewed with alarm by Israeli officials.
"Sanctions alone are not sufficient to pressure Iran to abandon its nuclear program, former Israeli Air Force commander Ido Nehushtan said on Saturday morning, and he indicated that the Israel Air Force was capable of setting back the Iranian nuclear program if ordered to do so," reports the Times of Israel.
IHS Jane's Military and Security Assessments Center released satellite photos that their analysts believe shows a new rocket launch site in Iran. "There are two possible reasons for this: They want a weapon that can reach the United States or they need a bigger missile to carry the nuclear weapons they are suspected of developing because the bomb design they are working with is too large for their existing Sejjils and Shahabs," Jeremy Binnie, IHS Jane's Middle East editor with Jane's Defence Weekly, told The Jerusalem Post.
Charity millions 'going to Syrian terror groups' - Telegraph (UK) 05/10/13

Assad amassed 1,230 chemical munitions, some possibly seized by rebels
Leaked details from a report by international chemical weapons experts charged with dismantling Syria’s chemical arsenal, reveal the extent of President Assad’s stockpile.
Inspectors from the Hague-based Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) have so far visited 21 of 23 scheduled sites. The watchdog said that it has been unable to visit the remaining two due to security concerns, as they are thought to be situated in areas of heavy fighting.
The report reveals the Assad regime has declared almost 1,300 tonnes of chemical weapons along with 1,230 unfilled chemical munitions, ready to be activated. One section of the OPWC report suggests opposition groups may have obtained a small section of this stockpile, stating “Syrian authorities have reported finding two cylinders not belonging to them, which are believed to contain chemical weapons.” The report, which was sent to United Nations (UN) Secretary-General, Ban Ki-Moon for distribution among UN Security Council members, apparently expressed confidence that Syria would meet the 1 November deadline for the “functional destruction” of all its chemical weapons production, mixing and filling facilities.
In another development yesterday, UN envoy Lakhdar Brahimi travelled to Damascus, as part of an effort to win support for the Geneva II peace conference between Syrian government representatives and opposition groups which the UN, United States and Russia hope will take place in late November. However, over the weekend, a joint statement of 19 opposition groups, said that attending such a conference would be a “betrayal” of their efforts. Israeli security officials have warned over the increased dominance of Islamist factions within the opposition, expressing concern over possible spill over into Israel.
Who are the rebels?
The prestigious IHS Janes consultancy firm in London reports that of the roughly 100,000 fighters battling the regime of Syrian president Bashar Assad, about half are members of Islamist groups including the Moslem Brotherhood and Al-Qaida. The same report also shows that there are over 1,000 independent rebel factions, many of which fight each other nearly as much as they fight the regime.
CIA says there are now more foreigners flowing into Syria each month to fight with al-Qaida-affiliated groups than there were going to Iraq to fight with al-Qaida at the height of the war there. The concern is that there are individuals traveling to Syria, becoming further radicalized, and trained to return to Western Europe and to the United States as part of a global jihadist movement.

Obama Signs Executive Order, Sends $500 million to Terrorists
Citing “national security interests,” President Obama effectively sidestepped Congress by signing an executive order which enables him to send $500 million to fund Muslim terrorists in the West Bank.The executive order, addressed to Secretary of State John Kerry, was quietly signed Friday afternoon, as the media’s full attention was focused upon a royal birth.In the order, President Obama writes, “I hereby certify that it is important to the national security interests of the United States to waive the provisions of section 7040(a) of the Act as carried forward by the CR, in order to provide funds appropriated to carry out chapter 4 of part II of the Foreign Assistance Act, as amended, to the Palestinian Authority.”
The move comes on the heels of a 2012 executive order in which Obama waived a congressional ban on funding the Palestinian Authority and sent the Hamas terror led organization $147 million American taxpayer dollars. He also removed all spending restrictions on that money, restrictions which dictate what the funds can and cannot be used for, ie. humanitarian assistance, education, betterment of society, etc. Thus enabling the money to be used for military equipment. nycdailymail.com
USA in Middle East
After Obama set off to launch military strikes against the Assad regime, Putin grasped the idea of Assad putting his Chemical weapons under UN control and has gained wide support and put Obama in the position of trying to keep up with Putin or be seen as a warmonger.
Especially re Egypt
The military coup in Egypt has derailed the Obama Administration, the U.S. State Department and the Muslim Brotherhood's plans for a United Arab States.
Additionally, the Saudis — who despise the Muslim Brotherhood — have offered to fund any shortages due to decisions by the U.S. and the EU.
The Saudis have already committed, along with Kuwait and the United Arab Emirates (UAE), $12 billion to Egypt. King Abdullah remains angry at Obama's throwing former Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak under the bus in February 2011.
Rabbi Abraham Cooper, an associate Dean of the Simon Wiesenthal Center in Los Angeles, stated this week, "As events in the Middle East and beyond continue to spiral out of control, we are a witness to an unprecedented erosion of U.S. clout." Watch.org
After the "Arab Spring"
The media continues to talk about the overthrow of the democratically elected President, Mohammed Morsi after one year of inept government and ramming through Muslim Brotherhood doctrine. However, the media habit of looking at such matters in terms of Good Guys and Bad Guys is clearly flawed in this case. Daniel Pipes provided the following in his analysis.
On July 31, 2013, Josh Goodman and James Parks wrote in "Morsi Was Neither Democratically Nor Duly Elected" that hailing Morsi as the democratically elected representative of the Egyptian people appears to be based on a rather loose understanding of "democracy."
The Brotherhood has been accused of bribing and intimidating voters and rigging ballots during the 2012 elections. The election suffered from abysmally poor voter turnout (43.4% of registered voters), which is especially troubling given the ostensibly historic nature of the race. Out of 23 million voters in the first round of elections, 12 million did not vote for either of the two candidates ultimately placed in the run-off vote. Capping this all off was a blatant power grab from the military, which changed the constitution mid-election to limit the power of the newly elected President.

The anti-Islamist backlash recently on display in Egypt is already spreading to its regional neighbors, as a massive crowd numbering in the tens of thousands gathered in downtown Tunis on Tunis, demanding the Islamist-dominated government step down. The protests also follow the recent assassination of a two Leftist politicians who opposed the Islamist regime, and increased terrorist attacks by suspected Islamist sympathizers designed to intimidate their opponents. - ICEJ
New evidence reveals that jihadi entities, such as al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb and Ansar al-Sharia (ASL), are holding training camps in Libya. Al-Wasat, an academic/policy research blog, reported that credible sources within Libya have confirmed such camps exist.
While Libya is in chaos following the removal of Gadaffi (with western support), the west is contemplating the removal of Assad in Syria.
Hillary, Obama and Rice Still Must Answer for Benghazi
The mainstream US media, once accused of covering up for the Obama Administration, broadcast a riveting report on the attack in Benghazi that killed Ambassador Stevens and three other Americans.
The 60 Minutes Report substantiated that one week after the attack, although the White House knew otherwise, the Administration promoted the fictitious story that Benghazi was a spontaneous demonstration gone bad.
Long regarded as one of the most stable regimes in the Middle East, Jordan has lost control over much of its territory.
Western intelligence sources asserted that the Hashemite kingdom has undergone a rapid decline over the last year amid the civil war in neighboring Syria. They said Jordan has become a hub for rebel operations against the regime of Syrian President Bashar Assad, with a huge foreign presence in both the north and south.
“King Abdullah has watched helplessly as foreign elements take over much of the country, dragging Jordan in a war that he doesn’t want,” an intelligence source who monitors the kingdom said.
“The king has always been pro-American, but over the last two years, he’s seen the United States consistently turn its back to its friends, while promoting a hostile Brotherhood,” another source said. WorldTribune.com
Hezbollah continue to be a major power, and to be involved in Syria, where some chemical weapons may have fallen into terrorist hands.

30 UK charity chiefs paid more than £100,000 pa
The leaders of some of the biggest charities risk bringing “the wider charitable world into disrepute” by taking large pay rises while donations are falling, according to the regulator.
The number of executives receiving six-figure salaries at Britain’s 14 leading foreign aid charities has risen by nearly 60 per cent, from 19 to 30, over the past three years.
Research found that the number of staff on salaries of more than £60,000 jumped by 16 per cent to 192 between 2010 and 2012. In some cases the pay of senior staff increased despite falling revenues and donations.
Christian Aid director, Loretta Minghella earned £123,729 in 2011/12
