U.S. Embassy Road Signs Go Up in Jerusalem & More

(Reuters) U.S. Embassy road signs went up in Jerusalem on Monday ahead of next week’s opening of the mission in accordance with President Donald Trump’s recognition of the city as Israel’s capital.

Dennis Edwards: Keep your eye on this event. Many eschatology students believe Israel is an important piece in End-time prophecy. The "Holy Covenant" is believed to be some kind of peace agreement over the Jerusalem situation. Some propose that Jerusalem will become an international city. We will see how the Arabs and the rest of the world respond to the opening of the USA embassy on May 15th which is the 70th year birthday of the modern state of Israel.

Israeli Minister Says ‘Lebanon Equals Hezbollah’ After Election
(Reuters) Hezbollah’s gains in the Lebanese election on Sunday show that the state is indistinguishable from the Iranian-backed Shi’ite group and that Israel should not distinguish between them in any future war, an Israeli security cabinet minister said.

Israeli Minister Threatens Assad Over Any Iranian Attacks From Syria
(Reuters) Israel could respond to any Iranian attack on it from Syria by toppling Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s government, an Israeli security cabinet minister said on Monday, hinting that Assad himself may be targeted for assassination.

Dennis Edwards: Many conservative Orthodox Jews believe that the land God promised to Abraham is rightly theirs. The boundaries of Greater Israel include the Nile River in Egypt and the Euphrates in Iraq. Both Lebanon and Syria would fall within Greater Israel. With this type of belief system you can better understand Israel's political and military position toward these two countries. Some Israelis believe that it is God's will for Israel to rule over the area of Greater Israel. The following link [The Oded Yinon Plan] gives more details about Israel's military plans since 1982 in respect to the future hopes of Israel.  If you take time to read the link you will note that Israel has been following this very plan and as a result we see the unstable situation in the area of Israel's dreams - Greater Israel."

PM Orban Vows to Preserve Hungary’s Christian Culture
(Reuters) Viktor Orban said on Monday the main task of his new government will be to preserve Hungary’s security and Christian culture, sticking to his nationalist policy to keep out migrants and fend off what he calls foreign meddling.

Dennis Edwards: In a similar move as the election of Trump, Viktor Orban has been elected. Like the Polish who wish to maintain their Christian culture and Polish ways, the Hungarians feel the same. The very strong European agenda which includes gay-marriages, abortion, gender identity is offensive to many traditionally Christian and Bible believing cultures. Trump gained support from this group in America in spite of his lackluster speaking ability and questionable morals. The Christians knew what Hillary stood for and could not in good conscience vote for her. I believe Trump won in protest to the strongly anti-family agenda of the left. Of course in Hungary, the question of accepting refugee immigrants from the Middle East is another concern. Eastern Europeans want to hold on to their traditional culture and feel threatened by European Union policies on the family and believe accepting thousands of immigrants could further destabilize their culture which is already feeling the pains of entering into the European Union. How the European Central Bank will take to Orban, and whether or not they will give him clear sailing is another question. Watch to see how Hungary's financial situation develops.
