The grand betrayal of Israel and rebellion against God

News that matters

The Arabs and Kerry blame Israel for unwillingness or inability to delineate final-status borders at the root of the problem.

OP-ED in Israel Hayom, by Ruthie Blum

On the heels of the disastrous deal with Iran that could not have been achieved without Western appeasement and capitulation, Kerry’s current visit is especially significant. What he has come to do is spread the gospel of weakness to the Israeli government that has worked so well for the U.S. and Europe: giving a mortal enemy whatever it wants and getting nothing in exchange. Well, other than an escalated threat, that is.

No stranger to this kind of policy and its repercussions, Israeli officialdom was devastated by the news of the accord that provides Tehran with just the leeway it needs to complete its nuclear program. And none of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s international appeals to prevent the deal from going through proved…

One Solitary Life

He was born in an obscure village, the child of a peasant woman.                                                                                                            He grew up in still another village, where He worked in a carpenter shop until He was 30.                                                                    Then for three years He was an itinerant preacher.                                                                                                                                     He never wrote a book. He never held an office. He never had a family or owned a house. He didn’t go to college. He never traveled more than 200 miles from the place He was born.                                                                                                                                      He did none of the things one usually associates with greatness. He had no credentials but Himself.                                                       He was only 33 when public opinion turned against Him. His friends deserted Him. He was turned over to His enemies and went through the mockery of a trial.                                                                                                                                                                       He was nailed to a cross between two thieves. When He was dying, His executioners gambled for His clothing, the only property He had.. . . on earth. When He was dead, He was laid in a borrowed grave through the pity of a friend.

Nineteen centuries have come and gone, and today He is the central figure of the human race, the leader of mankind’s progress. All the armies that ever marched, all the navies that ever sailed, all the parliaments that ever sat, all the kings that ever reigned, put together, have not affected the life of man on earth as much as that One Solitary Life.  (Author unknown)

*What this well-known poem forgets to mention, is that He did not stay dead! He is risen! And through Him, the veil was torn and mankind has life!

Merry Christmas!
