editor 30 June 2015

By Rev Willem J.J. Glashouwer.. From the book Why Israel? Chapter 4 – The Second ‘Until’ – Christian Persecution by Christians

editor 28 June 2015

By Raphael Ahren.. Palestinians will exploit the document to the fullest, but since it lacks specific evidence, it won’t provide ammunition against IDF at International Criminal Court. The United Nations report on last summer’s Gaza war was released Monday (June 22, 2015), launching the various allegations and recommendations contained therein on a journey through various international organizations. Some fear that the report’s accusations will inspire the International Criminal Court at The Hague to investigate Israelis for war crimes, but legal experts say that Mary McGowan Davis’s effort will have limited impact on the court’s activity, if any.
