Why the ‘Arab street’ didn’t just explode

editor 15 December 2017

By Ralph Peters.. In the wake of President Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital last week, the “experts” crowding the media predicted strategic calamity: Vast, violent protests and a wave of terror would sweep the Muslim world in the coming days. Instead, the largest demonstration anywhere this weekend was the funeral procession for Johnny Hallyday, the “French Elvis.” Nothing in the Middle East came close.

Iran Dispatches a Senior Commander of the Shiite Foreign Legion to Southern Lebanon

editor 14 December 2017

By Brig.-Gen. (ret.) Dr. Shimon Shapira.. Iran is implementing its strategic aim of turning Syria into a zone of Iranian influence. Ultimately, Iran wants to build a military infrastructure so that it can pursue its jihad against Israel on two fronts: the Lebanese border and the Golan Heights. Here, too, Iran prefers to make use of a proxy. In addition to Hizbullah, Iran is laying the groundwork to absorb tens of thousands of fighters of the Shiite Legion as they wind up the war against the Islamic State to the region from the outskirts of Damascus to the Golan Heights.

The Ark of the Covenant and the Tabernacle
Initially, the presence of God was strongly associated with the Ark of the Covenant (Exodus 25:10-22), the chest that contained the two stone tablets with the Ten Commandments written on them by the Lord Himself, (Exodus 31:18 and 34:1, 27-28), a jar of manna, (Hebrews 9:4; Exodus 16:33-34; 1 Kings 8:9), and Aaron’s rod that budded (Numbers 17:8-10). On top of the Ark was a mercy seat of pure gold with two cherubim, figures of angels, also of pure gold. Read more »

Jewish Action — Not Balfour — Created Israel

editor 14 December 2017

By Einat Wilf.. The campaign waged by Palestinians and their supporters to demand that Britain apologize for the Balfour Declaration, a century after it was issued, betrays yet again their fundamental misunderstanding of how and why the modern State of Israel came into being. Israel is the outcome of deliberate Jewish action — not of foreign hand-outs. Israel is a country attained – not a land given. Read more »

Why End Times? (78) – Chapter 7 – Jerusalem

editor 12 December 2017

By Rev Willem J.J. Glashouwer.. From the book Why End Times? Chapter 7 – Jerusalem

David made the choice
David had identified the site where the Temple would be built. God chose by choosing David, the man after His own heart, and David made God’s choice. The Lord inspired David’s heart and thus David’s choice became God’s choice. In Psalm 132, David had said: “…I will allow no sleep to my eyes, no slumber to my eyelids; till I find a place for the Lord, a dwelling for the Mighty One of Jacob” (Psalm 132:4-5). Jerusalem was to be the city where the Lord chose to establish His Name, 2 Chronicles 12:13. Read more »
