Global March to Jerusalem

The global march to free Jerusalem is scheduled for this Friday 30th March. The organisers hope that 1 million people will join the march to Israel’s borders, getting as close to Jerusalem as possible. Demonstrations are also planned outside Israeli embassies around the world.

In a nasty turn of events DEBKA file reports that Iran is forcing a number of Iranian Jewish young men to take part in the march. See DEBKA Newsletter, March 23, 2012. The intention is to place these Jewish young men in the front of the march to deter a firm Israeli response.

Pray for wisdom to be given to the leadership of Israel on how to deal with the march and for protection on any Jews forced to take part.

He apparently proposed to Shimon Peres that South Sudan would locate its embassy in Jerusalem. This would make them the only country in the world to recognise Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.
