UK Votes for “Palestine Alongside the State of Israel”

palestinecover_small

Yesterday, the UK's Parliament voted unanimously to recognize Palestine as a state. Of course, it is not much more than a symbolic gesture in support of the Palestinians' desire for a state. The British House of Commons voted 274 to 12 to support a motion for the British government to "recognize the state of Palestine alongside the state of Israel.""Palestine alongside the state of Israel" is not what Palestinians and the international community have been focused on for over 45 years. U.S. … [Read more...]

What to Do about U.S. Homegrown Islamic Radicalism

ISIS, the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, which also goes by the acronym ISIL or just the name Islamic State, is threatening to commit terrorist acts on U.S. soil as they behead captured Western aid workers and journalists, some of whom are U.S. citizens. UK's Prime Minister David Cameron said yesterday that that will only strengthen the resolve of the UK, U.S., and other coalition forces in opposing these radical Islamists in Syria and Iraq. ISIS has already taken control of much of northern … [Read more...]

Will ISIS Become the New Assyria?

In my book, Warrior from Heaven (2009), I state that the final Antichrist will be an Assyrian. Then I cite the biblical prophecies which support this. One of the foremost is Isaiah 10.12. Concerning the endtimes, it says in the NRSV, "When the Lord has finished all his work on Mount Zion and on Jerusalem," referring to the end of his judgment of the nation of Israel, "he will punish the arrogant boasting of the king of Assyria and his haughty pride." This king boasts saying, "I have gathered all … [Read more...]

A Palestinian State in the West Bank Will Be Intolerable

The General Assembly of the United Nations just met last week in New York City. Both Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and the Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas delivered speeches there. Some of their remarks concerned the recent war in Gaza, which lasted 50 days. Gaza suffered 2100 Palestinians killed and much destruction that will take years from which to recover with building projects and be very costly. The Israelis only suffered 72 casualties. It's always the same … [Read more...]

Islamic State of Iraq and Syria

I just now received an email from Pinnacle Forum America centered here in Scottsdale, Arizona, and of which I am a member. It quotes a missionary friend in Syria who relates what the Islamic terrorist group ISIS is doing. Here are some excerpts: "He said ISIS is systematically going house to house to all the Christians and asking the children to denounce Jesus. He said so far not one child has. And so far all have consequently been killed. But not the parents. The UN has withdrawn and the … [Read more...]

Should Egypt Give the Restive North Sinai to Palestinians?

Ever since the overthrow of Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak in 2011, Islamic terrorists have infiltrated the far North Sinai Peninsula, just south of the Gaza Strip stretching southward to the city of El-Arish, and caused much turmoil there. Plus, the bedouin living there have been dissatisfied with Egypt's poor governance of their territory. Several gun battles recently have occurred in this region between terrorists and Egyptian police. In one such battle, nineteen Egyptian military personnel … [Read more...]

Is the Two-State Solution Dead?

This question about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict is getting a lot of attention lately. I think the answer is "yes" if you're talking about the two-state solution that has been the focus of the two parties involved as well as the international community for so many decades now. But I don't think another two-state solution is dead, one that would accord with Israel's Proclamation of Independence. It seems hardly anyone thinks about it. But that's what my 1990 book, Palestine Is Coming, is … [Read more...]

The Middle East Is a Mess that’s Getting Messier

The Middle East is a mess. And it seems everywhere you turn, it's getting messier. Just consider these sobering facts of late:Syria's three-year old civil war is spilling out into Iraq due largely to ISIS/ISIL that are a part of the rebellion. Sunni insurgents in Syria's war are being financed by Sunni governments in the Persian Gulf, including Saudi Arabia. The Syrian rebellion is losing against Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's military forces. ISIS's goal is to create a Muslim … [Read more...]
