In March, Israel365 News reported that amid the Ukraine crisis, Israel’s transportation minister instructed that cargo ships importing grain be given priority for unloading at the port docks over this month.
This solution of stocking up on grains before a predicted famine mirrors the Bible’s Joseph. Joseph, son of Jacob, was promoted to be the prince of Egypt after he interpreted Pharaoh’s dream of withering grain stocks devouring healthy ones as an imminent famine in Egypt. Joseph then advised Pharaoh to stock up on wheat to have enough reserves once the famine strikes.
Let that food be a reserve for the land for the seven years of famine which will come upon the land of Egypt, so that the land may not perish in the famine.”(Genesis 41:36) But now, Israel appears to have a new partner in this initiative.
Jordan’s King Abdullah has proposed that the Hashemite Kingdom and Israel set up joint wheat reserves as well as a food storage center, Reshet Bet reported on Tuesday. According to the report, the initiative was proposed during a March 30 visit by Israeli President Isaac Herzog to Amman, where the two met.
During the visit, “The king of Jordan raised a precedent-setting offer for regional cooperation on food security,” according to the report. The report added that food insecurity and supply chain disruptions to food imports are of particular concern to Abdullah “during these days.”

The proposal involved establishing a joint reserves site whereby each country could draw from it in case of distress. According to the report, the proposal may extend to include Egypt and the PA.

They’re Trying to Shut Us Down
Over the last several months, I’ve lost count of how many times the powers-that-be have tried to shut us down. They’ve sent hackers at us, forcing us to take extreme measures on web security. They sent attorneys after us, but thankfully we’re not easily intimidated by baseless accusations or threats. They’ve even gone so far as to make physical threats. Those can actually be a bit worrisome but Remington has me covered.
For us to continue to deliver the truth that Americans need to read and hear, we ask you, our amazing audience, for financial assistance. We just launched a GiveSendGo page to help us pay the bills. It’s brand new so don’t be discouraged by the lack of donations there. It’s a funny reality that the fewer the donations that have been made, the less likely people are willing to donate to it. One would think this is counterintuitive, but sometimes people are skeptical because they think that perhaps there’s a reason others haven’t been donating. In our situation, we’re just getting started so please don’t be shy if you have the means to help.
Thank you and God bless!
