For Zion’s sake I will not be silent

April 9th is election day in Israel.  As of this writing which is April 8th, it is uncertain who will be the next prime minister of Israel.  Loyalties and the polls have been changing almost minute by minute. By the time this goes to print,  I pray Israel's prime minister remains Benjamin Netanyahu and there are good reasons for this however since I am not a citizen of Israel, why should I care?  Let me explain.

Obscure Diagnosis

Yes, we’re in flu season but that’s not the sort of disease to which I’m referring.  What I’m talking about is immune to any sort of preventive measures and has survived for thousands of years.  Antisemitism, the irrational hatred of the Jews, is a rising epidemic which is spreading around the world.

Radicals struggling to rewrite history

America has always stood with Israel because of our shared Judeo-Christian values and traditions. But now we have members in the U.S. Congress who want to change this relationship just as they want to change the very fabric and foundation of our heritage, faith and culture as shaped and handed down by America’s founding fathers. 

Radical Islam and radical liberals, or progressives as they often prefer to be called, are attempting to rewrite history of both the United States and Israel in order to further their political or religious agendas. In every generation there are moments in time when we are called upon to stand up for the truth.  We may be alive today for “such a time as this.”

Attack against one is an attack against all

We are living in a time when anti-Semitism is again on the rise and public opinion is being wrongly and strongly influenced against Israel and the Jewish people.  Back during the 1930s and 1940s, millions of Jews became victims of the Holocaust not because they were unaware that something bad was happening but because it was all too horrible and too unbelievable to actually grasp the reality that systematic intimidation and murder could be taking place in an educate and sophisticated society such as existed in Germany and Europe.  The first step down this dark passage of history began with intimidation.

Anti-Semitic Strategy at the UN

At first glance, the recent G-77 gathering seemed like a “Saturday Night Live” parody of the UN’ s largest bloc. The new chairman, with rehearsed political correctness, to smiles and applause, called on “all states” (except his) to end the “epidemic” of terrorism and “work with us to put an end to this scourge.”

The speaker was Palestinian Authority President and PLO chairman Mahmoud Abbas— infamous inciter and propagator of violence and terror against the sovereign State of Israel, and bankroller of Palestinian terrorism to the tune of more than US $138 million to terrorist prisoners and ex-convicts in 2018 alone.

Murder for hire

Most people believe that the conflict in the Middle East is a complicated matter.  Well, it’s not.  What it all boils down to is one side, namely the Palestinians, wants the other side, namely Israel, dead.  All Muslim countries share this common goal and according to the Pew Research Center, there are 50 Muslim majority countries in the world yet there is only one, very tiny, Jewish state.  Muslims comprise over 23% of the world’s population while Israelis represent only about 0.11%.  Quite a contrast but Israel is strong and able to keep her enemies in check however her job is made easier with support from the United States.

More than they are willing to pay.

Often I write about the Palestinians and for good reason.  We are living in a world which seems to have turned upside down and inside out. The Palestinian leadership are corrupt terrorists yet they are being accepted as legitimate heads of state even though they have no state, no legitimate nation and no country. We are indeed living in a very confusing time and the truth is often hard to discern. 

The Bible talks about a time when the world will be in constant turmoil and we should be under no illusions – that time is surely upon us.

“Peace-building is treason.”

At a time when the leadership of the United States is engaged in a contentious struggle over the building of a security wall along the southern border to help keep citizens safe from terrorists and others, the United Nations has opened its doors wide for the president of the Palestinian Authority, Mahmoud Abbas a.k.a Abu Mazen, and the government of the United States of America has granted him a visa to enter the country.  What makes this so shocking is the fact that Mahmoud Abbas is himself a terrorist who openly calls for the destruction of Israel and the United States, yet he was allowed to enter the United States and was welcomed at the U.N.

Education vs. Indoctrination

The world is hoping for a peace plan that will stick between Israel and the Palestinians and most are anticipating some sort of a two-state solution.  Even U.S.

From Missiles to Menorah

On Sunday evening, December 2nd, the people of Sderot, Israel - a town located less than one mile from the Gaza border – gathered to light the first candle of the town’s menorah to commemorate the first day of Chanukah (also spelled Hanukkah). Jews around the world celebrate this holiday which marks the time when the Maccabean Jews regained control of Jerusalem and rededicated the Second Temple.  What makes the candle lighting in Sderot worth mentioning is the fact that it is symbolic of how the Jewish spirit looks for ways to turn tragedy into triumph.
