Israel

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.

Israeli ingenuity changing the world

Israeli innovation was on the front burner during German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s recent visit, which highlighted joint initiatives in water, green energy and agritech. Israel and Germany also agreed to collaborate in artificial intelligence, cyber defense, water, nanotechnology, electrochemistry, and oceanographic and cancer research. Merkel’s visit is just one example of how Israel reaches out to help and heal the world.

At Last, the Truth Be Told!

Since Israel’s unilateral disengagement from Gaza in 2005, the standard of living for the Palestinian people in Gaza has steadily declined even though Israel gifted the Palestinians with thriving agricultural lands, productive greenhouses and beautiful beachfront communities.

The Proverbial “Red Line”

What does it mean and how strong is it?  The answer rests whoever is making the declaration.

Over the course of the past six plus years we’ve all heard talk from various world leaders threatening dire consequences if the opposition crossed “the red line.”  The red line marks the end of the line, or does it?
