By Eli E. Hertz.. Palestinian Arabs have concentrated many of their terrorist attacks on Jews in Jerusalem, hoping to win the city by an onslaught of terror who seek to make life in the City of Peace unbearable. But this is not a new tactic. Arab strategy to turn Jerusalem into a battleground began in 1920. (more…)

By C4I International.. SodaStream is an Israeli company producing soda makers to turn water or other fluids into soda, thus preventing pollution due to the production and waist of millions of bottles and cans. The story starts with telling about the 29 year old Rafeh Aglu getting up very early in the morning in the West Bank Palestinian village of Hisme to go to the SodaStream factory 15 kilometers away in Mishor Adumim, by a bus charter from his employer.

By Israel Today Staff.. In yet another story debunking the ongoing lie that Israel practices apartheid against the Arabs of the region, an Arab Muslim was recently chosen as the new director of the emergency department at Jerusalem’s Hadassah University Medical Center. In addition to being one of the top hospitals in the entire Middle East, Hadassah Medical Center is owned by the Hadassah Women’s Zionist Organization of America. And they chose an Arab to head one of their most important departments because he was the best candidate. Think about that for a minute, and then try to convince yourself that Israel is an apartheid state. (more…)
By Rev Willem Glashouwer.. In Matthew 24 Jesus speaks about the final days. He talks about wars and famines and lawlessness and false prophets and so forth. But Jesus also mentions two positive signs. One positive sign is in verse 14: “And the Gospel of the Kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all nations and then the end will come.” Not the end of the world but the end of this phase of world history. And then the next phase will start. So, the Gospel will be preached to the ends of the earth. (more…)
By Israel Today Staff.. If any Arab has a reason to hate Israel and speak out regarding the Jewish state, it is Nonie Darwish, who grew up in Gaza and saw her father eliminated by Israeli forces for his role in terrorist activities.
But Darwish’s conversion to Christianity later in her life has resulted in nothing but love for the Jewish state, and a firm understanding that God has a plan for and is working through Israel. (more…)
The Arab population in Israel has signaled a rather apathetic attitude towards tomorrow’s elections. And this is not because of hostility toward the Jewish state, but more toward their own Arab representatives in the Israeli parliament.
“We are desperate. Every time we send our Arab representatives to the Knesset, they only seem to care about the Palestinians (in the disputed territories), but not for the Arab citizens of Israel,” Jamal Hadsh from the Arab town of Tamara told the Israeli daily Maariv. (more…)
By Ran Dagoni.. On Friday 7th December 2012, the UN General Assembly passed a resoution proposed by Israel to encourage private and public sector entrepreneurship as the best way to deal with the challenges of poverty and job creation. Despite heavy Arab pressure, which continued right up to the vote, 129 countries voted in favor of the resolution. (more…)
By Eli E. Hertz.. Resolution 242 is the cornerstone for what it calls “a just and lasting peace.” It calls for a negotiated solution based on “secure and recognized boundaries” – recognizing the flaws in Israel’s previous temporary borders – the 1948 Armistice lines or the “Green Line” – by not calling upon Israel to withdraw from ‘all occupied territories,’ but rather “from territories occupied.” (more…)
By David Singer.. Israeli novelist David Grossman is working with Algerian writer Boualem Sansal to launch a writers’ drive for world peace at the World Forum For Democracy in Strasbourg this week. Their initiative is reportedly supported by some of the most respected names in literature including Claudio Magris, Antonio Lobo Antunes and Liao Yiwu. The Forum brings together reformers and global leaders to identify democratic responses to the economic, social and political challenges which affect societies today. The writers – in their quest to end conflict and bring peace to the world – have naturally included the resolution of the “Israel – Palestine conflict” within their purview. (more…)
What will happen next? What will the future of the world be? There’s one book that speaks very clearly about the future of the planet earth, about the future of the nations, about the future of Israel and about the future of you and me personally. The Bible speaks about wars in the end time, coming more and more to the Middle East. And when you look at the map of the Middle East and you read the names of the nations that will be involved in attacks on Israel, you suddenly realize that all these nations and all the former soviet republics and even half of Africa and even the southern part of Asia, like Pakistan, the half of China, maybe a third of China, when religion is free there, will appear to be Muslim, and Malaysia, Indonesia.
