“When you have gathered in the fruit of the land you shall keep the feast of the Lord for seven days … You shall dwell in booths … that your generations may know that I made the children of Israel dwell in booths when I brought them out of the land of Egypt … ” Leviticus 23:39, 42 – 43

Notes on Israel Prayer Points for September 2017
Feast of Tabernacles It is a memorial of when GOD dwelt with His people in the wilderness and a celebration of the harvest gathered in. For Christians it is a prophetic anticipation of Jesus’ return to Jerusalem for His 1000 year reign. This is a clear sign that we are living in the End Times as Isaiah saw the nations flowing up to the mountain of the LORD in the latter days (Isaiah 2:2).
Truth spoken at the UN Mosab Hassan Yousef, the son of Hamas founder Sheikh Hassan Yousef, stunned the Palestinian delegation to the UN Human Rights Council when he called out the Palestinian Authority’s human rights abuses of their own people. The PA delegation reacted with shock as Hassan calls the PA the “greatest enemy of the Palestinian people,” in a video posted by UN Watch. “If Israel did not exist, you would have no one to blame,” he declared. http://www.cufi.org.uk/news/watch-son-of-hamas-founder-stuns-palestinians-at-the-un-with-defence-of-israel/
Yousef on the Islamic problem: “We can fool ourselves but there is an Islamic problem,” mentioning terrorist groups such as Hamas, Hezbollah and ISIS. “All of them are killing in the name of Allah,” he said, adding that other religions do not act in such ways. “Humanity needs to stand against this danger. Islam is a belief system and the world should unify against it just as it did against Nazism. The Jewish people were able to overcome the Holocaust and instead of playing the victim card, built a democratic state, which sets a great example,” concluded Yousef. “I came from hell,” and “I love what Israel stands for.”
Arabs in Israel 63% of Arab citizens said Israel is a “positive” place to live, with 34% saying it is negative, while respondents also gave high marks to the country for having a “strong” degree of personal freedom and a “strong” amount of stability.
Iran tested a new ballistic missile that is capable of carrying multiple warheads, President Rouhani said Tehran would press ahead with strengthening its missile capabilities and military defences, despite USA pressure to stop. The USA has imposed unilateral sanctions on Iran, saying its missile tests violate a UN resolution. Britain voiced concerns about the latest test. “Extremely concerned by reports of Iran missile test, which is inconsistent with UN resolution 2231. Call on Iran to halt provocative acts,” Boris Johnson wrote on Twitter. Likewise, France said on 23 Sept. 2017, it was extremely concerned by Iran’s ballistic missile test and called on UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres to carry out a full report on the launch.
The test comes just weeks before President Trump is due to update Congress on whether Iran is in compliance with the nuclear deal it signed with world powers in 2015. Should Trump say that Iran is not in compliance with the deal; Congress would have 60 days to decide whether to re-impose sanctions waived under the deal. The President has long been a vocal critic of the Iranian nuclear deal, and he repeated his criticism of the deal in his speech at the UN General Assembly this past week. Trump called the deal “an embarrassment” to the USA and “one of worst and most one-sided transactions the United States has ever entered into.” Speaking to reporters last week Trump said he has reached a decision on whether to recertify Iran’s compliance with the 2015 nuclear deal, but would not reveal that decision. The deadline to make the announcement is 15 Oct. 2017.
“The world’s silence vis-a-vis the Iranians is reminiscent of the world’s silence in the face of North Korea’s nuclear bullying, which led to a situation in which they now have nuclear weapons that they can use at any moment. It is an existential and tangible danger to the Jewish people no less than the Holocaust. The only difference between World War II and today is that, now, we have the ability to prevent it. “Therefore, it is Israel’s duty to inform the entire world, and the Iranians in particular, that a state that calls for the destruction of the State of Israel and is acting accordingly will be answered accordingly. It must be clearly stated that any offensive Iranian action against Israel will be met with the destruction of Tehran, and that is what must be done.” Quote from PM Netanyahu
