When writing about God and Jesus, The Daily Jot means YHVH as God and Yeshua Ha Mashiach as Jesus--the actual original names and the true nature and character of them.

Beginning in 2005, when president George W. Bush coerced and pressured then Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon to remove some 8,500 Israeli Jews from Gaza, US presidents set America on collision course with the one true God. Within a few days of the Gaza evacuation, Katrina hit the US coast. Inside of six months, Sharon suffered a stroke and spent eight years in a coma before passing. Americans elected the immediate past "president," who promised "A New Beginning" with Muslims and the banned Muslim Brotherhood became his major foreign policy partner. Today, Israel is under attack and the new US president is trying to fix the problems the previous presidents helped create.
In 2005, the terrorist group Hamas took over Gaza the moment the Israelis left. This was the true beginning of what five years later in 2010 became known as the Arab Spring where national Arab governments were being replaced with Islamist, Muslim Brotherhood-backed, al Qaeda-supported rebellions. In elections, the people who claim to be Palestinians elected Hamas over the other terrorist groups PLO and Fatah in Gaza. Hamas provided a clear model for the Muslim Brotherhood to use the leverage of a sympathetic White House to instigate rebellions in Tunisia, Egypt, Yemen, Libya and Syria. The result was widespread chaos in the Middle East and a resurgence of terrorism surrounding Israel.
Today, the destabilization of Syria from Arab Spring has proven an ongoing threat to peace and has caused much human suffering. Hezbollah missiles rain down on Israel and clashes with Israeli military have become commonplace. Hamas has continued its missile attacks from Gaza and the West Bank (traditional Jewish lands of Samaria and Judea), as well as fomenting riots. On Thursday, December 6, the UN's Arab members joined together to vote down a US-sponsored resolution condemning Hamas as a terrorist group. The vote was significant because the Trump Administration has been trying to turn the tide of anti-Israel sentiment that was further allowed to entrench during the previous White House.
US Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley
told the General Assembly before the vote that "peace must be built on truth. To its shame, the General Assembly has avoided the truth of Hamas terrorism for far too long" and that the assembly could make history by condemning "one of the most obvious and grotesque cases of terrorism in the world." Instead, the vote, which required two-thirds majority to pass, fell short 87 in favor to 57 opposed with 33 abstentions.
Speaking of the end time Day of the Lord, Zechariah 12:9 says, "And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will seek to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem." We can see how prophecy unfolds even by tracking very specific actions since 2005. This is how the nations so easily stand against Jerusalem and how the leaders we elect establish our destiny as a nation and a people.
