Lock Up the USA Olympic Swimmers Until They Confess

It' a serious thing to falsely report an incident that can spoil the reputation of a nation. That's what appears to have happened this week at the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.Four, decorated, U.S. male swimmers who won medals in the Games were arrested by police after the young men left a party at France House, a restaurant and bar that was set up for the Olympics. The arrest apparently occurred at a gas station because security or employees there called in the police. The police … [Read more...]

World Vision in Gaza Is Under Investigation

I've been a financial contributor to World Vision for many years. It is a large, premier, Christian, humanitarian aid organization. World Vision says it currently is aiding about 40,000 Palestinian children in both Gaza and the West Bank besides helped in establishing needed basics such as digging water wells, building greenhouses and such. That is a serious aid program. Yesterday, World Vision in Gaza became suspect.Shin Bet is the intelligence-security agency of Israel, much like the CIA … [Read more...]

Professor Wayne Grudem Endorses Donald Trump for U.S. President

I have posted several times during the past year about my objection to Donald Trump becoming president of the United States of America. At first, the very idea seemed like a joke to me. The only thing I have liked about this most unordinary presidential election campaign in my lifetime has been the many cartoons created about the Trumpster. In my early posts about him, I predicted he would not last. But like many other usually sane minds who have prognosticated about this Republican presidential … [Read more...]

Birth Rates of Israeli Jews and Palestinians No Longer a Threat to the Jewishness of Israel

The Wall Street Journal reported today that Israel's feared demographic problem has remarkably dissipated. For decades, it was predicted that the high birth rate among Palestinian women who are citizens of Israel would eventually make Israel a predominantly Palestinian country. Predictions were that this would have happened by now or no more than a decade from now. Indeed, I reported this threat in my book, Palestine Is Coming: The Revival of Ancient Philistia (1990). Not now. Things have … [Read more...]

More on the Philistine Cemetery Discovery at Ashkelon

I posted yesterday about the announcement Sunday of the discovery of more than 200 Philistine skeletons in a 3,000-year old cemetery at Ashkelon, Israel. Ashkelon was one of the five city-states of ancient Philistia, the arch rival of ancient Israel that we read so much about in the Jewish Bible (Old Testament). This is a major archaeological find that will have much impact on studies about the ancient Philistines, of whom there has been quite a lack of information.The most important goal of … [Read more...]

Why Get DNA from Cemetery of 200 Philistines?

It was just announced yesterday that an archaeological team has discovered a 3,000 year old cemetery in Askelon National Park in Israel that contains the skeletons of 200 Philistines. (Askelon was a major Philistine city with an important harbor on the Mediterranean coast.) The discovery actually was made thirty years ago by the Leon Levy Expedition, a team of archaeologists from Harvard University, Boston College, Wheaton College in Illinois, and Troy College in Alabama. This elite group has … [Read more...]

Egypt–Forfeit the North Sinai to Create a Palestinian State

Thursday, a masked gunman representing an Islamic terrorist group in the North Sinai that is affiliated with ISIS walked up to 46-year old Rafael Moussa, a Coptic Orthodox Church priest, and shot him dead as he was standing near the Coptic St. George Church in El Arish, the capital city of North Sinai, which is part of the large Sinai Peninsula, a mostly wilderness that belongs to Egypt. An ISIS message was soon posted on the Internet describing Moussa as a "disbelieving combatant."For about … [Read more...]
