A Word to Consider

editor 22 April 2017

By Rev Willem J.J. Glashouwer..

“…The sixth angel sounded his trumpet, and I heard a voice coming from the four horns of the golden altar that is before God. It said to the sixth angel who had the trumpet, “Release the four angels who are bound at the great river Euphrates.” And the four angels who had been kept ready for this very hour and day and month and year were released to kill a third of mankind. The number of the mounted troops was twice ten thousand times ten thousand [two hundred million]. I heard their number…” (Revelation 9:13-16). (more…)


Iran vows ‘Death to Israel’ as it unveils its latest missiles during National Army Day parades (but at least one looks like North Korea’s ‘fake’ wonky rocket)

editor 21 April 2017

By Gareth Davies.. Iran has paraded a missile with the sign ‘Death to Israel’ attached to it during a huge military parade showcasing deadly weapons this morning (April 18, 2017).  The ceremony was held in the capital Tehran and troops from all units took part to mark National Army Day in the country, but one weapon in particular looked a lot like a North Korean missile critics said was a fake at a similar parade. The nose of a rocket mounted onto a bigger missile appears to be pointing skywards, in the same way the North Korean weapon was comically built which prompted people to take to Twitter to say it was an empty, painted box.

Comment: Sisi and the Copts

editor 20 April 2017

By Rami Aziz.. After nearly three years of Sisi’s reign, the Copts find themselves facing continuous decay in their livelihoods and rights, with no end in sight. On December 11 (2016), a massive explosion shattered St. Mark’s Cathedral in Abbasia, central Cairo, claiming the lives of more than 25 worshipers and wounding scores of others. The event cast even more anxiety and strain over the situation of Egypt’s Copts, which has been volatile and troubled for some time.

Europe’s Compassionate Hatred of Israel

editor 15 February 2017

By Bat Ye’or.. The Jerusalem Declaration of UNESCO seeks to Islamize, with the help of many governments in Europe and other Christian countries, the ancient history of the people of Israel. But what does this declaration mean for Europe and Christianity? Wasn’t Christianity born out of Israel? Wasn’t Jesus a Judean Jew, as were the apostles and evangelists? Or was it Islam that Jesus was preaching, in Arabic and in the mosques? (more…)

Strange Bedfellows: The Russian-Turkish-Iranian Axis

editor 26 January 2017

By Ofra Bengio.. Russia has fulfilled a long-held dream of reaching the warm water of the Mediterranean and is casting itself as the hegemon in the region. Sixty years have lapsed since the Baghdad Pact which grouped together Turkey, Iran, Iraq and the West in an alliance against the Soviet Union and the concomitant Communist danger. Nowadays this Middle Eastern architecture has shifted 180 degrees to where Russia, Turkey and Iran are in an ad hoc alliance against Islamic State but which may turn against the West as well. Still, the new alliance might be termed as a marriage of inconvenience where each of the parties has different motives and is acting at cross purposes in partitioning the Syrian bear. (more…)


The UN Declares War on Judeo-Christian Civilization

editor 18 January 2017

By Giulio Meotti.. How is it that Western jurisprudence, created after the Second World War to prevent more crimes against humanity, is now being used to perpetuate more crimes and against democracies? It is a dreadful manipulation to try erase all Jewish and Christian history, to make believe that all the world was originally and forever only Islamic. That is what a jihad looks like. It is not just orange jumpsuits, beheadings and slavery. If one can erase and rewrite history, one can redirect the future. If Palestinian men beat their wives, it’s Israel’s fault, argued UN expert Dubravka Simonovic with a straight face. (more…)

By Rev Willem J.J.  Glashouwer.. Those who have followed the developments in the Middle East year after year will not have missed that in November 2012, the General Assembly – voting by a large majority (139 in favour to 9 against with 41 abstentions) – accorded Palestine ‘non-Member Observer State status’ in the United Nations.
