Trump The Most Pro-Life President In History

“The Lord will guide you always. He will satisfy your needs in a sun-scorched land and strengthen your frame. You shall be like a well-watered garden, like a spring, whose waters never fail,” Isa. 58:11

ICC PROSECUTOR DECLINES PA REQUEST TO OPEN IMMEDIATE INVESTIGATION AGAINST ISRAEL OVER GAZA DEATHS: The Chief Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court (ICC) in the Hague refused the Palestinian Authority's request to open an immediate investigation against Israel over the deaths of 62 rioters during violent protests on the Gaza border last month. ICC Chief Prosecutor Fatou Bensouda met Tues. 22 May, 2018 with PA Foreign Minister Riad al-Maliki, who submitted the request to investigate Israel. "The mere submission of the request does not automatically lead to the opening of an investigation," Bensouda wrote in response. "Since January 16, 2015, a preliminary examination of the situation in Palestine has been conducted to determine whether there is an infrastructure for the opening of a criminal investigation and will continue to be conducted in accordance with the Rome Statute." Israel's Foreign Ministry condemned the PA move as a “a cynical move that is not legally valid. The PA continues to abuse the tribunal for political purposes rather than to promote political negotiations." (Arutz-7)

WHITE HOUSE CONSIDERING ACTIONS AGAINST PA: The United States is contemplating acting against the Palestinian Authority's (PA) mission in Washington D.C. These penalties include “closing their diplomatic mission to the United States.” The United States is currently reviewing the situation and will decide if these protocols will take effect. “We are reviewing this latest development to determine if it requires changes to the operating status of the PLO office in Washington, D.C., which has been limited to activities related to achieving a lasting, comprehensive peace between the Israelis and Palestinians since November 2017,” a National Security Council spokesperson told media sources. The spokesperson said that the USA views the PA's attempt to have Israel prosecuted for alleged war crimes as antithetical to the Trump Administration's attempts to restart peace negotiations between the two sides. This week, PA foreign minister Riyad al-Malki submitted a request to ICC Chief Fatou Bensouda to immediately open an investigation against the Jewish state for the deaths of 62 protesters, at least 50 of whom were members of the Hamas terrorist organization, on the Gaza border last week. Bensouda refused to open an immediate investigation against Israel. (Arutz-7)

IRAN: ‘OUR MILITARY IS MORE PREPARED THAN EVER FOR WAR’: The chief of the Iranian military warned that his country was “more prepared now than ever” for hostilities, defying the United States after USA Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said the Trump administration would impose the “strongest sanctions in history” on the Tehran regime. This week Pompeo unveiled the administration’s plans for new sanctions on the rogue state, warning Iran that it would be forced to either “fight to keep its economy off life supports systems at home, or keep squandering precious wealth in fights abroad. It will not have the resources to do both.” Pompeo said the USA would maintain the new, expanded sanctions until Tehran accepts the administration’s demands, including “unqualified access” to all suspected nuclear sites in Iran, closure of Iran’s heavy water reactor, and an end to funding for Middle East terror groups like Hezbollah. On Wed. 23 May 2018, Major General of Iran’s Revolutionary Guard, Mohammad Bagheri, issued a response to Pompeo’s announcement, declaring that Iran would not “wait for the permission of foreign powers to develop defense capabilities” and warned that his country’s military was “more prepared than ever” for conflict or war.

IRAN’S SECRET MISSILE FACILITY EXPOSED: A California weapons research team has discovered evidence that Iran continues to develop advanced missiles at a secret facility, the NY Times reported Wed. 23 May 2018. An analysis of satellite images showed that the facility's activity is focused on the development of advanced rocket engines and rocket fuel, and that the activity is often carried out under cover of night. The facility is named the Shahrud Facility and is located about 250 miles east of Tehran. The discovery rekindled fears of Tehran's intentions to develop intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBM) capable of reaching far beyond the Middle East. Such plans were thought to have experienced a major setback when a previous facility exploded in 2011. Michael Elleman, a missile expert at the International Institute for Strategic Studies, called the evidence "disturbing." The work done at the facility could be the beginning of Tehran's plans for "developing an ICBM five to 10 years down the road, should Tehran wish to do so," said Elleman. (Arutz-7)

LOUISIANA WON’T DO BUSINESS WITH BDS SUPPORTERS: Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards issued on 22 May 2018 an executive order prohibiting Louisiana state government from doing business with companies that boycott Israel. Louisiana is the twenty-fifth USA state to enact legislation of this kind, and numerous municipalities have done so as well. Edwards' executive order specifically mentions BDS (Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions), a campaign which is intended to isolate, weaken and ultimately destroy the Jewish state. "The state of Louisiana unequivocally rejects the BDS campaign and stands firmly with Israel," reads Edwards' executive order. In the future, companies will be required to certify that they aren't boycotting Israel before being awarded a state contract. Louisiana Governor John Bel Edwards issued the order on the same night that he was celebrating the 70th anniversary of Israel at the governor's mansion. (INN) This is another victory in the fight against BDS activity hostile to Israel. Intercessors please continue to pray against this anti-Semitic anti-Israel movement. BDS activity started in July 2005, when 171 Palestinian civil society organizations banded together and decided to try a new approach to fight the so called “occupation.” Since then, the movement has expanded to include hundreds of campaigns on six continents. They range from pushes for investors such as churches, trade unions and universities, to divest from companies holding Israeli military contracts, to consumer boycotts, calls for musicians and other artists to cancel appearances in Israel, and demands for governments to impose sanctions. BDS has never been invoked against any other country...only Israel.

CANCER REMAINS ISRAEL’S BIGGEST KILLER: Cancer was – as it has been since 1999 – the leading cause of death among Israeli men and women according to a new Health Ministry report on the leading causes of death between 2000 and 2015. Heart disease was the second-leading cause of death in 2015. It was responsible for 15% of all deaths, which is the most common cause among women aged 75 and older and the second-most common among women aged 45 to 74 and men age 45 and older. (J.Post) Pray for cancer and heart disease researchers to perfect cures for those vulnerable or suffering from these maladies, not only in Israel but throughout the world.

RARE JEWISH COINS FOUND IN TEMPLE MOUNT EXCAVATION: Five exceptionally rare ancient coins from among the very first ever minted by Jews were discovered on the Temple Mount, evidence of Jewish activity at the disputed site. The small coins—three in pristine condition and two showing signs of wear—were discovered as part of the Temple Mount Sifting Project, an archaeological initiative started in order to sift thousands of tons of dirt illegally excavated and dumped in the Kidron Valley by the Islamic Waqf in 1999. The Waqf excavations compromised the archaeological integrity of the Temple Mount and sparked outrage in Israel, leading many to suggest that the Waqf was intentionally attempting to eradicate evidence of two Jewish temples that stood on the Mount for over 800 years. The sifting project, which has operated since 2004 and aims to salvage religious and historical artifacts from the rubble, as well as to educate the public about the veracity of Jewish history on the Mount.

TRUMP THE MOST PRO-LIFE PRESIDENT IN HISTORY: USA President Donald Trump has stood up for the humanity of the unborn child like no president in recent memory. And this is why so many Christian conservatives stick with him. Trump received a foot-stomping standing ovation Tues. night 22 May 2018, at the annual Campaign for Life gala of the pro-life Susan B. Anthony List. Not only was Trump the first president to address this incredible organization in its 26-year history, he used the occasion to deliver on yet another pro-life promise, one that his Republican predecessors could not, or would not, fulfill: He announced a new rule to stop indirect taxpayer funding of abortion through the Title X family planning program. Since taking office, Trump has taken many steps to ensure American taxpayer’s dollars are not used to subsidize the taking of innocent human life. He got a record number of conservative judges confirmed during his first year; allowed states to defund Planned Parenthood; defunded the pro-abortion UN Population Fund; restored and expanded the Mexico City policy banning taxpayer funds for groups that perform abortions overseas; and exempted organizations with moral objeSctions against providing abortifacient drugs from the Obamacare Health and Human Services mandate. He is, as SBA List President Marjorie Dannenfelser put it, "the most pro-life president in our nation's history." "Every life is sacred, and every child is a precious gift from God," Trump declared Tues. night. "We know that every life has meaning and that every life is totally worth protecting." Trump is doing everything in his power to protect those lives. (Fox)Continue to intercede for USA President Donald Trump. The forces of evil are against Trump, his pro-life stance, his love for Israel, his actions against Iranian fraudulence, chemical warfare in Syria, and so many other issues that save lives and restore dignity and authenticity to the USA.
