Israel: Covenants & Kingdom (36) – Chapter 5 – Church and Kingdom

editor 21 June 2018

By Rev Willem J.J. Glashouwer.. From the book “Israel: Covenants & Kingdom”

The Kingdom and Israel
That visible Kingdom will be inseparably bound to Israel, because the Angel Gabriel promised to Jesus’ mother Mary in Luke 1:30-33: “…The angel said to her, ‘Do not be afraid, Mary; you have found favour with God. You will conceive and give birth to a son, and you are to call Him Jesus. He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High. The Lord God will give Him the throne of His father David, and He will reign over Jacob’s descendants forever; His Kingdom will never end’…” [Photo top right: The Christmas story – An angel visits Mary | Credit: Contributed by LUMO Project – Free Bible Images].  (more…)

Speech by the UK Foreign Secretary to the UN Human Rights Council

editor 20 June 2018

By Foreign & Commonwealth Office and The Rt Hon Boris Johnson MP.. Your Excellencies, Ladies and gentlemen, I want to begin on behalf of the UK by thanking High Commissioner Hussein for his service and for his tireless efforts for speaking up for human rights around the world. And I’m delighted to be here because, at its best, this Council has shone a spotlight on appalling violations of human rights in specific countries – as we’ve just heard – and given a voice to people who would otherwise have suffered in silence. Britain considers this Council to be part of the rules-based international system in which we believe and that we strive to protect.

Australia not happy with US decision to quit UNHRC

editor 20 June 2018

By J-Wire Newsdesk.. Australia is disappointed by the decision of the United States to resign from the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC). In a published statement Foreign Minister Julie Bishop said: “Australia shares many of the concerns held by the US about the UNHRC, particularly its anti-Israel bias, and we have consistently supported efforts to address other matters of contention. We are committed to progress effective and meaningful reform to enable the Council to more effectively carry out its role.

‘A Body Unworthy of the Name:’ Haley and Pompeo Confirm US Departure From UN Human Rights Council

editor 20 June 2018

By Ben Cohen.. Nikki Haley, the US Ambassador to the UN,  denounced the global organization’s Human Rights Council (UNHRC) as a “hypocritical body unworthy of its name” as she confirmed on Tuesday (June 19, 2018) that the United States would no longer serve as one of its members. “This is not a retreat from human rights commitments,” Haley told journalists at the State Department in Washington, DC.  The US could not, however, “remain in a hypocritical organization that makes a mockery of human rights,” she said.

editor 19 June 2018

Israel: Covenants & Kingdom (35) – Chapter 5 – Church and Kingdom

editor 19 June 2018

By Rev Willem J.J. Glashouwer.. From the book “Israel: Covenants & Kingdom”

In you and among you
Jesus answered a question about when the Kingdom of God would come by saying, “…The Kingdom of God does not come with your careful observation, nor will people say ‘Here it is’ or ‘There it is,’ because the Kingdom of God is within you…” (Luke 17:20-21). He meant that its date cannot be calculated using some formula or schedule of end times events, or by a prophetic roadmap formed by gluing Bible verses together as an eschatological timetable. [Image top right: Jesus is welcomed as King then betrayed, put on trial and sentenced to death. Matthew 21, 26-27; Mark 11, 14-15; Luke 19, 22-23; John 13-19 | Credit: Bible Pathway Adventures – Free Bible Images].

The lethal moral confusion of saying kaddish for Hamas

editor 18 June 2018

By Melanie Phillips.. The Hamas onslaught against Israel at the Gaza border fence has illustrated a danger for the Jewish people even more fundamental than the declared attempt to invade Israel and slaughter Jews. This is the fallout among the Jews themselves. In London, a group of young Jews assembled outside parliament to recite the kaddish prayer for the Hamas terrorists who were killed while attacking the fence in the most violent riots on May 15, 2018.

Reframing The Middle East Narrative: My Ten-Point Guide

editor 16 June 2018

By Melanie Phillips.. I wrote a couple of weeks ago that those trying to defend Israel in the court of public opinion needed a strategic rethink. Defending Israel against the calumnies being thrown at it is to concede defeat from the start by engaging upon ground defined by its enemies. Instead, Israel’s defenders need to go onto the front foot. They need to do to its enemies what is done to Israel: to paint them as extreme, unconscionable and a mortal threat to life and liberty. But with one key difference: that whereas Israel’s enemies do this through lies, bigotry and irrationality, its defenders should do it through truth, morality and reason.
