Evening Update: Israeli Elections Cancelled?

Now it appears that the Israeli elections may not happen after all. Tomorrow's news is sure to bring a great deal of commentary and speculation over these changing events, but somehow one can guess that the situation with Iran has something to do with this evolving scenario:

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and opposition chairman MK Shaul Mofaz (Kadima) reached a surprise agreement early Tuesday morning to form a national unity government.

Sources in Kadima told Haaretz that Mofaz is expected to be appointed as a minister in the government. Likud sources confirmed this, adding that they expected that Mofaz would become a minister without portfolio.

The dramatic announcement, which has yet to receive official confirmation, came as the Knesset was conducting early-morning discussions ahead of an expected vote to disperse in advance of early elections. Earlier in the evening, 119 MKs voted to approve in its first reading a bill to disperse the body, with only one lawmaker opposed.

On the surface, this move makes no sense. The opposition party, Kadima was on life support and for some reason Netanyahu gave them life, albeit in this unity government which will he will lead. It is still perplexing. More detail is sure to come tomorrow and the following days. More below on this breaking story:

Just hours after the Knesset approved the first reading of a bill to dissolve itself and hold elections, it appears as though no early elections will be held.

Kol Yisrael radio reported that Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and Opposition leader MK Shaul Mofaz have reached an agreement to form a national unity government.

A unity government is likely to harm the Labor Party, which has gained strength in the polls, as well as Yair Lapid's party, as he will now have to wait until the current Knesset completes its term in order to run.

A unity government would definitely help Kadima which, according to all polls, was set to suffer a dramatic blow in the next election.

Netanyahu, opposition leader meet in order to consider governing together in move that would postpone early elections; Likud ministers complain about the move: Why are we giving Kadima a lifeline?

Likud ministers complained about the move.

"Why are we giving Kadima a lifeline after it was bleeding to death," one minister asked.

One possibility for a new government is that Mofaz and other Kadima ministers will be given ministry without portfolio in return for a commitment to not topple the government for at least a year.

In other news:

Egypt’s Islamists aim to install a global Islamic caliphate with its capital in Jerusalem, a radical Muslim preacher told thousands of Muslim Brotherhood supporters in a clip released Monday.

“We can see how the dream of the Islamic caliphate is being realized, God willing, by Dr. Mohamed Mursi,” Safwat Higazi told thousands of Brotherhood supporters at a Cairo soccer stadium as Mursi – the movement’s presidential candidate – and other Brotherhood officials nodded in agreement.

“The capital of the caliphate – the capital of the United States of the Arabs – will be Jerusalem, God willing,” Higazi said. “Our capital shall not be in Cairo, Mecca or Medina,” he said, before leading the crowd in chants of “Millions of martyrs march toward Jerusalem.”

Members of the crowd carried banners emblazoned with slogans related to next week’s “Nakba Day,” when Palestinians and other Arabs mourn Israel’s creation in 1948.

Despite the MSM's mantra that the Muslim Brotherhood is a 'moderate' group, the evidence shows otherwise:

Returning to the stage, Mursi vowed to pray in Jerusalem. “Yes, Jerusalem is our goal. We shall pray in Jerusalem, or die as martyrs on its threshold.”

Raymond Stock, an American translator and academic who spent two decades in Egypt, said the clip should come as a surprise to no one.

“This is what the Muslim Brotherhood really stands for: the extermination of Israel – and Jews everywhere – as well as the spread and control of radical Islam over the world,” he told The Jerusalem Post.

And this time, they really mean it.

The European Union told Iran on Monday it "must" suspend uranium enrichment, a few days after the Islamic state ruled out doing just that, as Tehran and the West engaged in diplomatic shadow-boxing ahead of nuclear talks this month.

Iran and the six major powers resumed discussions last month in Istanbul after a gap of more than a year - a chance to ease escalating tension and avert the threat of a new Middle East war - and both sides described the atmosphere as positive.

The next meeting between the powers - the United States, France, Britain, China, Russia and Germany - and Iran is to take place on May 23 in the Iraqi capital. Iranian officials say they are "optimistic" about making progress.

But with Iran seeking an end to sanctions and Western states reluctant to ease the pressure they credit with bringing Tehran to the negotiating table, diplomats are already playing down the chances of a settlement in Baghdad.

Hi Brother Scott. :)
WOW!!! "unity government"!!! If I may, I did some research on this back in 2006. A "unity government" can ALSO BE USED DURING TIMES OF WAR!!!
Below is information I gathered
(dont even remember from where I got it-different sources probably) in 2006 about the "unity government" or it can also be called an "emergency government".

1948 - first "emergency government" or "national unity government"
The aforementioned truce had officially taken effect on June 11th, between the Arabs and the Provisional Israeli Government, headed by David Ben-Gurion. The Provisional Government was the emergency government formed until elections could be held at some later date. (The young nation was after all embroiled at the time in a war of survival.)
Due to public pressure, Prime Minister Levi Eshkol forms a national unity government and appoints Moshe Dayan as defense minister. Dayan supports Sharon's position in regards to the scope of action that should be taken in Sinai.

"Israel considers Emergency Government"
Thursday, July 13, 2006
In an emergency cabinet meeting held late Wednesday Israel considered calling for the establishment of an emergency government as the fighting in Lebanon escalates.
Political sources say the prime minister has not made it clear if he will ask Benjamin Netanyahu and Avigdor Lieberman to join, but may do so if the situation worsens. Knesset Members from a number of different parties have urged him to do so in this security situation.
Prime Minister Ehud Olmert has not ruled out the possibility, but said that now is not the time to deal with political, parliament and coalition interests.
It is believed that Olmert will ask Netanyahu and Lieberman to join the government until the military operation in Lebanon ends. Netanyahu told Israel’s Channel 2 that he would consider joining if asked.The only other time an emergency government was formed was in 1967 during the Six Day War. Levi Eshkol, prime minister at the time, formed such a government.

God Bless!

This coming completely out of left field....and only a week after the mysterious ground hugging chlorine gas cloud engulfed Tel Avie.... after drifting over from the military training at an outlying town.

After initial thorough coverage, all Israeli news outlets just "shut up" about it. Funny, even the most leftist of the news outlets in Israel don't think complete coverage is require at the risk of national security. One quote "...a decided skittishness on the part of Israeli officials to talk about the subject at all, indicate that something more might be at the root of the olfactory weirdness..."

Now this....Emergency Government

As a side note, something tells me Bibi is taking Obama to school again.

Oh yea, the original headline and link...
‘Strange Smell’ in Israeli City May Be Linked to Military Drill

scott, I just got finished reading your was so awesome, thank you for everything you do. I can only imagine the time, effort, energy and prayer you must put into this blog. Your blog was what got me so excited about prophecy and made me start researching and telling my family and friends. It made me start studying my bible again. God is so good. I long to be with our Lord. I probably will never see any of you while we are here but I cant wait to see you all in Heaven one day. God bless!


Scott said...

Mel, Thanks so much it means a ton to hear something like that - I really appreciate it. It is a lot of work, but the signs tells us that we'll be in the presence of Jesus soon, and that makes it all worthwhile :)

Mrs C ---- Wow....I had no idea, but it makes perfect sense - thanks so much for that timely research.

Something is definitely up. Very interesting development....

Scott said...

Mr C - and to put in perpective, this comes at a time when we just saw the new "super-president" of the EU - being 'selected' w/o a vote, and will be considered as the most powerful position in the world. Hmmmm..
We seem to be experiencing a birth pain right now. I wouldn't be surprised to see a significant quake in the next week or two (not hoping for it by any means; its just a trend I have noticed lately)

Scott said...

Another interesting aspect to this fresh 'wave' of prophecy news, worth noting - is that the story of the 'moderate' Muslim Brotherhood calling for global caliphate with its capital in Jerusalem, and it barely gets noticed in the midst of bigger stories.

I noticed that ANON was getting mad at me for noticing that he/she is back.


Anyway, i DEAL with facts, i do NOT
ever put forth false stuff on this blog, anyone can CHECK and verify
what I say about stocks, just go to and see it in
black and white.

That being said, short term wave
counts indicate more BULLING on
TUES, I could be wrong, we will see.

I figure this RAPTURE thing is taking ALOT LONGER then any one
thought possible....and I doubt
it is cos Jesus wants the bulls
blessed, NOT AT ALL !!!!

I think it has to do with mercy
like for instance, many that are
NOT SAVED such as those people
over at Real Jock.....but that is
concerning since one could make
the case that the more mercy they
get, the more they take advantage.

I really NEED TO SEE DOW 12,700 broken
on the downside, I know I sound
like a broken record, but it's true.

and until THAT happens, bulls must
be respected.....although i am
QUITE SURE they never respect the bear side, that is not fair, I tell 'YA >>>>>>>>>>>>>>

Update again after the close on TUES.

To the Prophecy Gang >>>>>>

tell me what you think please >>>>

from the book of daniel NIV >>>>

7 “After that, in my vision at night I looked, and there before me was a fourth beast—terrifying and frightening and very powerful. It had large iron teeth; it crushed and devoured its victims and trampled underfoot whatever was left. It was different from all the former beasts, and it had ten horns.

8 “While I was thinking about the horns, there before me was another horn, a little one, which came up among them; and three of the first horns were uprooted before it. This horn had eyes like the eyes of a human being and a mouth that spoke boastfully.

U see in verse 8, the words, "came up among them".....

I am beginning to think that this
AC will be in charge of the UFM
and the Super President at the same
time....that is possible, is it not ??

that would make sense since the 7 heads come from the UFM.....

and now Sarkozy is out of a job
and this so called super president
is NOT an elected, but an appointed

It could be Sarkozy OR someone we
do NOT know about yet ??

what does this blog think about this ?? INPUT PLEASE !!!!

You should see this one:

You have to understand that Daniel 2 and Daniel 7 are telling the same story. We know from Daniel 2 that the roman empire will be "revived" at the end of the age, because the legs of iron transform into an iron and clay mixture. We also know that there will only be 4 such empires who reign over Israel and the Roman Empire is the fourth. This is one reason we know that the iron/clay mixture can't be a 5th, or a 'new' empire. Therefore it has to be a modern-day, transformed roman empire. And the 10 toes represent the last stage in the roman empire's development because its a continuation of the lower legs as you progress through time, moving from top to bottom.

We know from Daniel 7 than the antichrist will rise from the 10 kings (aka 'horns')

The AC will be from the roman empire (Daniel 9), and more specifically from the last stage of the roman empire, the 10 Kings.

The AC will be from the roman empire (Daniel 9)

Yeah, Scott, i see your point, BUT
in 13 Revelation John speaks of
the beast having the feet of a bear
and as I have SAID BEFORE, this
emblem that you see on the UFM
site looks almost exactly like
the footprint of a Grizzly.

That is a serious matter to me.

4th Rome beast is a mix of the first 3 empires , its got Babylons lion teeth (big mouth, lots to say) with the Medepersians bear feet (ha!) that walks all over other nations and Greeks body like a leopard (meaning real fast) but its lots worse than them put together and real fierce. That’s who it is in Rev 13~~ the 4th beast of Rome ~~and scotts right about all that.
its not to do with the bears an bulls of wallstreet if that’s what ur thinks?

Are you saying they have selected the new super EU president? I thought they were just discussing the need to establish the position.

HEY ANON >>>>>

If you are so smart, go ahead and

IF YOU cannot identify, then just

James, no, to my knowledge, no individual has been selected yet (well, at least not that we know of :)
