Jerusalem is Simmering: 1,000 Additional Forces Sent to Capital

Prophecy Sign:  Jerusalem, the cup of trembling

God Almighty warned that Jerusalem would be at the center of world news and that nations would gather against her, with the city being divided.  Already the signs of this division and siege are becoming apparent as things heat up between the Jews and Muslims.

I am going to make Jerusalem a cup that sends all the surrounding peoples reeling. Judah will be besieged as well as Jerusalem. On that day, when all the nations of the earth are gathered against her, I will make Jerusalem an immovable rock for all the nations. All who try to move it will injure themselves. Zechariah 12:2-3 NIV

Jerusalem is Simmering: 1,000 Additional Forces Sent to Capital
As a result of the recent escalation of terror and violence in Jerusalem, law enforcement agencies are working Sunday to bring more security forces to the capital. An additional 1,000 Israeli Police and Border Patrol forces will be on hand to oversee security in eastern Jerusalem.  Escalated tensions in the capital were felt all of last week, particularly after Wednesday's terrorist attack, which killed 3-month-old, Chaya Zisel Braun and injured eight others - some critically. The tensions continued last night, when Palestinian youths clashed with security forces in several neighborhoods of eastern Jerusalem.

Netanyahu: Islamist Extremists Are Trying to Burn Down Jerusalem
At the opening of today's (Sunday) government cabinet meeting, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu addressed the wave of violence against Jews that had been engulfing Jerusalem, especially in the eastern part of the capital. "In recent days, including today, we have deployed 1,000 additional Border Police, as well as members of other special units.  We cannot permit that the norm in the city will be rock throwing, and Molotov cocktails and general rioting," the Prime Minister stated. "And this is no coincidence," Netanyahu continued, "there are various radical Islamist forces at work here who are trying to burn down Israel's capital, and we exert, relentlessly, and with responsibility, every means at our command to make sure they do not succeed in these effort. And in this, I expect the full support of the Israeli public in our efforts to maintain Israel's capital."

Muslim leader in Israel: “Entire earth” will be “subordinate” to caliphate
In an interview with the official PA TV channel, Sheik Kamal Khatib, deputy leader of the Islamic Movement in Israel, said: “Jerusalem will not be only the capital of the Palestinian state, but also the capital of the coming righteous Islamic caliphate.” After he repeated his views several times and said that “the entire Earth” would “become subordinate to the Islamic caliphate one day”, PA TV cut the interview short.
