The Middle East Crisis in Biblical Perspective

The Middle East Crisis in Biblical Perspective
What are the spiritual roots of the Arab-Israeli conflict? Can the conflict be solved politically?

by Dr. David R. Reagan

“Why don’t those stubborn Jews just give the Arabs the West Bank so that there can be peace in the Middle East?”

The question was directed to me by a grumpy man I was sitting next to on an airplane.

Suspecting that the man did not have the foggiest idea what he was talking about, I responded with a question: “Where is the West Bank?”

“You know,” he said.

“Yes, I know, but do you?”

“Well, of course I know!” he snapped.

“Okay then, where is it?” I asked again, insisting that he answer.

“Well… well…” he sputtered, “the West Bank is the west bank of the Nile!”

NETANYAHU DENIES ARAB MEDIA REPORT!

NETANYAHU DENIES ARAB MEDIA REPORT – SAYS NO GOLAN SURRENDER!
by Tzvi Ben Gedalyahu

(IsraelNN.com) Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu’s office denied a report in the Arabic-language newspaper al-Arabiya that he will inform Syria, through French channels, that Israel would agree to surrender the strategic Golan Heights in return for a peace treaty.

The platform of the Prime Minister’s Likud party specifically states that his government will not withdraw from the area.

Obama’s Failure, Netanyahu’s Opportunity

By Caroline Glick
Obama’s Failure, Netanyahu’s Opportunity

Once again, US President Barack Obama has demonstrated his intention of “putting light” between America and Israel. His hostility toward Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu during the latter’s visit to Washington this week was breathtaking.

It isn’t every day that you can see an American president leaving the prime minister of an allied government twisting in the wind for weeks before deciding to grant him an audience at the White House.

It isn’t every day that a visiting leader from a strategically vital US ally is brought into the White House in an unmarked van in the middle of the night rather than greeted like a friend at the front door; is forbidden to have his picture taken with the president; is forced to leave the White House alone, through a side exit; and is ordered to keep the contents of his meeting with the president secret.

Israeli Vice PM says US perceived as Weak by Radicals

EXCLUSIVE: ISRAELI VICE PRIME MINISTER TELLS EVANGELICALS U.S. POLICY OF “ENGAGEMENT” WITH IRAN PERCEIVED BY RADICALS AS “WEAKNESS”

(Jerusalem, Israel) — “We have no territorial disputes with Iran,” noted Israeli Vice Prime Minister Moshe Ya’alon in an address to nearly 300 evangelical Christians here in the Holy Land as part of a Joshua Fund prayer & vision trip. “So why do Western leaders believe territorial compromise by Israel will appease them?”

General Ya’alon – who served from 2002 to 2005 as the Israeli Defense Forces’ chief of staff — pointed to ”Iranian fingerprints” on arms shipments and terrorist actions in recent years in Lebanon, in Gaza, in Iraq, in Afghanistan and most recently in Yemen. He warned that Iran is rapidly acquiring the technical capacity to build nuclear weapons. In light of such dangerous developments, he urged the West to wake up to the danger and gain the “moral clarity and strategic clarity” needed to confront Iran successfully.
