Russian Fighter Jet Makes several passes near US Warship

WASHINGTON (AP) — A Russian fighter jet made multiple, close-range passes near an American warship in the Black Sea for more than 90 minutes Saturday amid escalating tensions in the region, U.S. military officials said Monday.
In the first public account of the incident, the officials said the Russian Fencer made 12 passes, and flew within 1,000 yards of the USS Donald Cook, a Navy destroyer, at about 500 feet above sea level.
The U.S. warship issued several radio queries and warnings using international emergency circuits, but the Russian aircraft did not respond.
“This provocative and unprofessional Russian action is inconsistent with international protocols and previous agreements on the professional interaction between our militaries,” said Army Col. Steve Warren, a Pentagon spokesman.
The fighter appeared to be unarmed and never was in danger of coming in contact with the ship, said the officials. The passes, which occurred in the early evening there, ended without incident. A second Russian fighter jet flew at a higher altitude and was not a concern, said Warren.
A U.S. military official also said that a Russian Navy ship, a frigate, has been shadowing the U.S. warship, remaining within visual distance but not close enough to be unsafe. The official was not authorized to discuss the incident publicly so spoke on condition of anonymity.
Warren said that he is not aware of any official communication or protests by the U.S. to the Russians about incident.
The USS Donald Cook has been conducting routine operations in international waters east of Romania. The ship, which carries helicopters, was deployed to the Black Sea on April 10, in the wake of the Russian military takeover of Ukraine’s Crimea region and ongoing unrest there. U.S. military officials have said the deployment is part of an effort to reassure allies and partners in the region.
Ukraine’s acting President Oleksandr Turchynov on Monday called for the deployment of United Nations peacekeeping troops in the east of the country, where pro-Russian insurgents have occupied buildings in nearly 10 cities. The gunmen are demanding more autonomy from the central government and closer ties with Russia.
The West has accused Moscow of fomenting the unrest. And European Union foreign ministers are meeting in Luxembourg Monday to consider additional sanctions against Russian officials because of Moscow’s annexation of Crimea.
The USS Donald Cook is now in port at Constanta, Romania.

BREAKING NEWS: Stocks dive as Russia abandons U.S. dollar »

image

BREAKING NEWS: The stock market dive Friday that brought the Dow Jones Industrial Average to near 16,000 and the Nasdaq to below 4,000 might reflect an accelerated move by Russia away from the petrodollar in retaliation for the Obama administration’s threatened economic sanctions over Russia’s takeover of Crimea. Russia’s politically motivated attack on the petrodollar could trigger a major U.S. stock market collapse amid a global loss of confidence in the dollar caused by the Federal Reserve’s continuing policy of buying billions of dollars monthly in U.S. Treasury debt. The Fed hopes to stimulate the economy by artificially keeping already depressed interest rates at zero. With the Fed having limited options to address a panic caused by a bear market that could continue into next week, the risk of heavy selling of the U.S. dollar in international markets could raise prices in the increasingly import-dependent U.S. economy. Hyperinflation could result, pushing the struggling economic recovery into a renewed economic recession. On Friday, the third straight day of stock market losses, the Nasdaq plunged 54.37 points, or 1.3 percent, to 3,999.73. The Dow dropped 143.47 points, or 0.9 percent to 16,026.75, and the Standard & Poor’s 500 index fell 17.39 points, or 1 percent, to 1,815.69. More

PROPHECY ALERT: Israeli Institute Prepares Priests for Jerusalem’s Third Temple »

image

On April 10, at 5 p.m.,
hundreds of Jews will gather at the Maimonides rabbinical institution plaza in the Kiryat Moshe neighborhood in Jerusalem and start learning the Jewish laws of Passover. Rabbis and experts, including Rabbi Yisrael Ariel, the head of the Temple Institute in the Old City of Jerusalem, the leading body preparing for the establishment of the third temple, will teach the audience the laws of the Passover sacrifice. Alongside Ariel, the ritual slaughterer (shohet) Rabbi Yehudah Giatt will teach the audience about the unique elements of the slaughter of the Passover sacrifice. After the lessons, the real thing will start: the simulation of the Passover sacrifice. The timing of the gathering isn’t coincidental: This was the date on which the people of Israel were commanded to take a lamb and sacrifice it, before the exodus from Egypt. The ceremony on Thursday will be, in Israel Defense Forces (IDF) lingo, “practice with live fire.” Slaughtering lambs, sprinkling their blood on the altar by priests dressed in kosher priestly garments and roasting the lambs, with their heads, legs and innards. Just as God intended. More

Weekend of “UN-Biased” Resolutions Against Israel – Israel News

“For I will gather all nations against Jerusalem to battle…” (Zechariah 14:2)

The United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC), an intergovernmental body which should serve to define and protect the human rights of all people, has once again singled out Israel for disproportionate condemnation, drawing sharp criticism from both Israel itself and the U.S.  Over the past weekend, the UNHRC passed five anti-Israel resolutions on its agenda, while continuing to ignore gross violations by other states in the region and around the world.
The UNHRC’s winter session ended Friday with the passage of five resolutions against the Middle East’s only liberal democracy.  Four of the resolutions addressed Israel’s treatment of Palestinians, while one absurdly condemned Israel’s treatment of Syrians in the “occupied” Golan Heights.
Paula Schriefer, the U.S. representative to the UNHRC, was incredulous. “To consider such a resolution while the Syrian regime continues to slaughter its own citizens exemplifies the absurdity of this agenda item.”
Likewise, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu spoke out during a Sunday cabinet meeting, saying,  ”The UN Human Rights Council condemned Israel five times…at a time when the slaughter in Syria is continuing, innocent people are being hanged in the Middle East and human rights are being eroded.”

SOMETHING IS ABOUT TO HAPPEN: For the First Time in History, Israel Closes All Embassies and Consulates Worldwide…

 

(DiscloseTV) – In the video below as well as some articles around the internet we see that for the first time in history, Israel is closing all it’s embassies and consulates worldwide. I agree with DAHBOO here, the timing, the events going on across the globe, the missing Malaysia flight and the potential for this plane that is missing since March 9th possibly being used in a terrorist attack, all indicate that Israel is bringing their people back home where they can be protected, no matter what they claim is the “official” reason.

Israel recently threatened to “destroy” those that would attack them and a move like this, a historical move, could very well mean that Israel expects World War III to break out and is acting accordingly.

Something huge is coming… be prepared.


(The Jerusalem Post) – Foreign Ministry’s workers committee declared a full-fledged strike on Sunday, closing the ministry and all the country’s embassies and consulates around the world for the first time.

The strike is the latest development in a nearly two-year-old work dispute that the workers declared for improved salaries and work conditions.

Seven months of mediation efforts exploded on March 4 when the workers rejected a Finance Ministry proposal.

The workers then resumed crippling labor measures that had been put on hold during the mediation period.

A number of high-profile visits to Israel were canceled as a result of the measures, as well as Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu’s planned trip to Mexico, Colombia and Panama next month.

In addition, Pope Francis’s planned visit in May is in doubt because of the strike measures.

A statement put out by the workers committee said that the workers declared an “indefinite” strike “in protest of the employment conditions for Israeli diplomats and because of the draconian decision by the Treasury to cut the workers’ salaries.

“Today, for the first time in Israel’s history, the Foreign Ministry will be closed and no work will be done in any sphere under the ministry’s authority,” the statement read.

Israel Navy Fires at Smuggling Boats Off Gaza Coast – Israel News

“I will send fire on Magog and on those who dwell securely in the coastlands, and they shall know that I am the Lord.” (Ezekiel 39:6)

Early Wednesday morning, an Israeli naval vessel fired upon two alleged smuggling boats speeding from Gaza to Egypt.
According to the IDF, the vessels were leaving the Gaza Strip, heading back towards Egypt, when the Navy intercepted them. After the boats strayed from Gaza into restricted water, the navy immediately requested that the vessels stop.
The navy opened fire on the boats once it became apparent that they would not stop. The IDF confirmed that the vessels were hit but did not confirm any casualties.
