editor 30 March 2017

By Noah Beck.. Originally written for the Investigative Project on Terrorism

Hizballah leader Hassan Nasrallah recently warned Israel that his Iran-backed terror group could attack targets producing mass Israeli casualties, including a huge ammonia storage tank in Haifa, and a nuclear reactor in Dimona. Also last month (February, 2017), Tower Magazine reported that, since the beginning of the Syrian civil war, Iran has provided Hizballah with a vast supply of “game-changing,” state-of-the art weapons, despite Israel’s occasional airstrikes against weapons convoys. [Photo top right:A rocket display in the southern town of Sderot, for years Hamas’s primary target (photo credit: Moshe Shai/Flash 90)] (more…)

PEACE and SAFETY for ISRAEL

editor 9 February 2017

By David Sudlow.. God is faithful to all His covenant promises to Israel, the Church and His Creation. We look and pray for those promises and are quickened with faith, hope, and love. Great days are ahead in the fulfilling of the Gospel of the Kingdom. We can see God’s great covenant promises coming to pass for His firstborn Israel; therefore we are assured that our redemption is certain—the Lord’s coming is very near. “For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so comes as a thief in the night. For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction comes upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.” 1 Thess. 5: 2-3. (more…)

Top 10 Reasons Not to Go to Paris

editor 23 January 2017

By Paula R. Stern.. Paris is supposed to be an amazing city. I was there once. For 24 hours. It wasn’t great. The people were really nasty – from the snotty municipal worker who refused to give me directions because my French wasn’t accented properly, to the inconsiderate cleaner at the airport who carefully smashed her broom into garbage cans near benches where people were sleeping, but quietly circled the cans where the benches were empty (I kid you not…we watched this for 15 minutes till we realized and confirmed the pattern). Maybe they just don’t like tourists. Maybe they don’t like Americans. Or maybe they just don’t like Jews. Who knows? (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…)
