Despite turbulent times, people are dancing in the streets. Why? Because they’re happy to be in Jerusalem.
Think on this: “If you belong to Christ, then you are Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.” (Galatians 3:29) Pray on this: Gracious Father, grant that by your Holy Spirit, we might know our true identity.

By SHARONA SCHWARTZ, THE BLAZE— In their effort to avoid detection by the Israeli military, Hamas militants in Gaza have employed tactics including traveling in ambulances, hiding in hospitals, dressing up in Israeli army uniforms, concealing rockets in United Nations schools, concealing tunnel entrances near mosques and using animals for suicide missions.

BY CAROLINE GLICK, JPOST— Operation Protective Edge is now two weeks old. Since the ground offensive began Thursday night, we have begun to get a better picture of just how dangerous Hamas has become in the nine years since Israel withdrew from the Gaza Strip. And what we have learned is that the time has…Details
By VICTOR SHARPE— Terrorism needs its poison spewed to as wide a viewing audience as possible. This still begs the question: how can people of principle and truth respond so lamentably towards those who wave their automatic weapons and fire deadly missiles through the orb of the blue sky, bringing down passenger planes or indiscriminately…Details
By DR INNA ROGATCHI, ROGATCHI FOUNDATION— The wave of anti-Israel and anti-Semitic hatred has sprung all over Europe readily seizing the pretext of the completely justified Israeli military operation in Gaza.

By JOSEPH KLEIN, FRONTPAGE MAG— There are two Gazas. One is at street level, where Palestinian civilians serve as Hamas’s human shields in the face of Israel’s narrowly targeted response to the more than 1500 rockets that have rained down on its citizens in recent days.

By CAL THOMAS, JPOST— The anti-Semitic “tradition” of blaming Jews for the world’s problems mostly took a temporary back seat in light of the indiscriminate rocket attacks on Israel by the terrorist group Hamas. Major newspaper editorials condemned Hamas, but their condemnation was hedged by calls for “restraint” on “both sides” and “proportionality” in Israel’s…Details
By EARL COX, JPOST— Whoever wins the war of public opinion will smell victorious. Hamas knows this and they expertly play to the media who buy into all their twisted fairytales. Hamas plays the victim role beautifully and flawlessly, calling the media to come see what Israel did. Hamas lacks conscience, lacks compassion and Hamas…Details
BY RON JAGER— Over the past few days as one goes about doing routine chores, it’s almost impossible not to notice something different in our national pace.

By ALAN DERSHOWITZ— Some well-meaning Israeli intellectuals are encouraging a blood libel against all Israelis for the gruesome murder of Muhammad Abu Khdeir, which was apparently committed by a handful of extremists, some of whom may have had serious mental problems. A front-page article in The New York Times (July 11, 2014) quotes Anshel Pfeffer,…Details
By MICHAEL FREUND, JPOST— With Israel poised to launch a ground operation in the Gaza Strip, the country finds itself at an important crossroads, one that could determine the strategic environment for many years to come.

By DANIEL GREENFIELD, SULTANKNISH— From Berkeley to Boston and from Paris to Sydney, the season is upon us again. Hipsters twirl Keffiyahs from some Shanghai factory around their necks, don army surplus jackets and Decembrist t-shirts and head to the nearest Israeli embassy to scream about a new Holocaust.
