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.

Hamas reiterates rejection of peace with Israel
The Palestinian Islamist terror militia Hamas issued a statement reiterating its rejection of the ongoing negotiations between Israel and the Palestinian Authority.
One official specifically reacted to statement PA President Mahmoud Abbas made recently that the PA would agree to a demilitarized state in the West Bank and recognize Israel. "Such statements are a preface for liquidating the Palestinian cause and preventing the right of return for Palestinian refugees,"
Israeli officials told reporters on Wednesday that the Palestinian Authority has complete control of all Palestinian media outlets and could easily end incitement against Jews and Israel, especially in school textbooks, but it chooses not to.
A PA statement responded by declaring, without citing examples, that several studies by Palestinians, Israeli and international experts have concluded that "the issue of Palestinian incitement is vastly exaggerated, and that incitement exists just as firmly on the Israeli side." Read More (ICEJ)

Ukraine crisis is bad for the Jewish community.
The Hungarian ambassador to the UN said in New York that his nation took responsibility for its role in the Holocaust, days after the country’s Jewish community accused the government of engaging in Holocaust revisionism. Ambassador Casba Körösi said, "Institutions in the then-Hungarian state were responsible for the Holocaust. This apology must be made part of the national memory and identity of the Hungarian state."

Wars and rumours of wars - Signs in the Heavens
Negotiations continue in secret, but various hints are leaking out. (latest first)Despite Benjamin Netanyahu’s basic requirement that the Palestinians recognize Israel as a Jewish state within the framework of negotiations for peace, the American State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki reportedly stated in an interview with the “Al-Quds” newspaper that the Palestinians do not need to recognize Israel as Jewish state as part of the peace agreement if they do not wish to do so.
Kerry offered Beit Hanina as Palestinian capital
Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas described US Secretary of State John Kerry's framework agreement draft as "madness." According to Al-Quds, Kerry demanded Abbas to official recognize Israel as a Jewish state, and offered the Beit Hanina neighborhood as the Palestinian capital instead of the entire east Jerusalem area.
This was not the first time the Americans have offered only a part of east Jerusalem for the Palestinian capital. In a previous round of talks, the Americans offered Abu Dis as an alternative - an offered that was rejected immediately.
In addition, Kerry has raised the possibility that the Jordan Valley will not be a part of the Palestinian state.
Kerry explicitly admitted that he hopes at best to get Israel and the Palestinians to agree on a "framework" for a peace agreement by April 29, but that a final deal could take another nine months or more.
Abbas confirmed arlier this month that a Palestinian state might have to cede its defensive capability to NATO, and that he could accept IDF presence in the West Bank for a five-year period after the signing of an agreement. The Palestinian leader even agreed to a gradual evacuation of Israeli settlements in the West Bank.
However, Abbas insisted that he would not recognize Israel as a Jewish state.
Kerry Proposes: 80,000 Arabs to Move to Israel U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry proposed to Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas the "return" of 80, 000 Palestinian "refugees" to Israel, a well-informed Palestinian Authority (PA) official told Chinese news service Xinhua. more
John Kerry Proposing To Offer Up U.S. Troops To Help Secure Borders Of "New State Of Palestine" The US troops would be tasked with helping to prevent anti-Israel forces from coming out of Jordan and reaching Israel, according to Debkafile, an Israeli intelligence and security news service. Palestinian officials are demanding that Israel move its forces from the Jordan Valley, where the US troops would be stationed. more
Kerry is Behind European Boycotts (INN) Govt. sources reveal that Kerry is responsible for EU boycott threats, but is keeping them in check during talks, ready to escalate if talks fail. The European boycott threats are against Israeli products and companies operating in Judea, Samaria, eastern Jerusalem and the Golan Heights. more
John Kerry quietly presented a U.S. plan for eastern Jerusalem that calls for an international administrative mandate to control holy sites in the area, according to informed Palestinian and Israeli diplomatic sources. Kerry’s plan recommended a coalition that includes the Vatican, together with a group of Muslim countries such as Turkey and Saudi Arabia. more
For some time, in contempt of Israeli law and the agreements signed between Israel and the PLO, the EU has been financing illegal building by Arabs in Judea, Samaria and Jerusalem.

WASHINGTON - "For the sake of our national security and the peace and security of the world," diplomacy with Iran must be given a chance to succeed, the White House charged Mid January 2014.
The White House issued a detailed breakdown of the technical nuclear agreement reached in Geneva between Iran and world powers.
Great! - If you think we can trust Iran's leaders and President Obama.
But Sanctions are slipping away; unchallenged, and without any signs of compliance.
Mohammed bin Nawaf bin Abdulaziz al Saud, the Saudi ambassador to Britain published an Op-Ed in the New York Times Wednesday, criticizing recent negotiations between the P5+1 nuclear powers (US, UK, France, Russia, China and Germany) and Iran as being hopelessly inadequate to forestall the Islamic Republic’s renegade nuclear program. "This means the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia has no choice but to become more assertive in international affairs: more determined than ever to stand up for the genuine stability our region so desperately needs."

"Kerry Is Just Not in Touch with Reality"
by Daniel Pipes
January 9, 2014
Despite all that's going on the Middle East – the Iranian nuclear buildup, the violence in Iraq, the shaking of Erdoğan's rule in Turkey, civil war in Syria, Egypt and Yemen in melt-down mode, Libya unraveling, Tunisia in political crisis – U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry has one main thing on his mind, and that's a Palestinian-Israeli accord.
Senior Israeli diplomatic officials are showing impatience with him. There are quotes from some, speaking off the record and very candidly to Israel Hayom. Read here
"The conduct of the U.S. secretary of state is obsessive. There are those who say that more than wanting to advance peace, he wants to take advantage of the conflict for his political needs. According to this line of thought, Kerry seems to think his path to the White House is via the signing of a Middle East peace agreement."
(1) Kerry has long had a reputation for trying to bend reality to fit his own thinking. This diplomatic effort would seem to be his most ambitious –and harmful – such indulgence to date. (2) The American administration obsesses over the Palestinians because it, bizarrely, sees this as the key to the region's other problems.
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.
"The Muslim Brotherhood is showing the world its true colors," "The group that 'renounced violence' in an effort to gain political power is engaged in a full-scale campaign of terror against Egypt’s Christian minority. The-muslim-brotherhoods-war-on-egypts-christians

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.
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
WITHOUT AN Israeli grip on the Jordan Valley, Jordan would be exposed to a Palestinian takeover; in certain circumstances, guerrilla forces could enter Jordan to help bring down the king. Moreover, since Hamas today holds a majority of the Palestinian Authority, one can predict that following a coup in Jordan, the new government will be influenced by Hamas, perhaps by Iran – but certainly not by King Abdullah.

Hezbollah continue to be a major power, and to be involved in Syria. 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.
