"Israel in the Line of Fire"

Tensions surrounding the Temple Mount are escalating. The Israeli people are being overwhelmed by a flood of terrorist attacks. As the news reports continue to come in about knife wielding terrorists attacking police and citizens, Jerusalem is on edge tonight and rightfully so. Israeli police are being targeted by terrorists using vehicles as lethal weapons. In less than two months the IDF reported 58 stabbings, 5 shootings and 7 car ramming incidents.

Now there are reports of a new propaganda campaign of libel. This time it comes in the form of claims that Israelis are harvesting the organs of Palestinians. Representatives of Israel have petitioned the U.N. over this latest act of anti-Semitism and are awaiting a response. There has been little to no response from the world over these stories breaking in the news. The Israeli officials are urging calm in the wake of implementing tougher laws for rock throwers. Rock throwing has been the cause of serious injuries and even death.

Renouncing the Oslo Accords and taking back the authority Israel handed over to the PA is reasonable. There can be no two state solution. There is no possibility for a negotiation. It is time to admit the truth. This was never going to work. The PA never wanted a peace deal which is why they never missed the opportunity to miss an opportunity.

Israel missed her own opportunity. When Israel won the Six Day War of 1967, she took possession of the Temple Mount. As peace came over the land and silence filled the air, the Israeli people began weeping with relief and joy. They were overcome with emotion by the victory...

part two: Tweedledee meets up with Tweedledum

During the third RNC sanctioned presidential primary debate hosted by CNBC, the viewing public was witness to surrealism come to life. We've learned the GOP as a whole seems to agree with the statement of Senator Marco Rubio that “The Democrats have the ultimate super PAC; it is called the mainstream media.” This view is not new. It stems out of a now, long standing perception on the part of GOP voters, going all the way back to 1987, when Brent Bozell started up the Media Research Center. The MRC claims to use expert news analysts, utilizing scientific methodology, to prove a liberal bias in the media (let us hope it is honest, as well as fair and balanced).

Starting in the late 1980s and mid 1990s, the liberal bias in the media view was seeded into the public mind, and brilliantly nurtured by the creative forces of a newly created conservative media. The backbone of this new conservative media existed in the form of the national syndication of Rush Limbaugh's programs, and the debut of the 24 hour FOX News cable channel. This all had a weirdly, seeming synchronicity with the rise of the Clintons.

In the 1990s, the left wing of the Democratic party were wary allies, more than they were friends of the Clintons. The Clintons came of out the centrist DLC...

part one: Tweedledee

There was a brief moment during the televised, House hearings of the Select Committee on Benghazi, where I sat stunned, on the edge of my seat, thinking "Was that a White Rabbit that just ran across my screen?" and "Have I been eating Magic Mushrooms?" Secretary Hillary Clinton was being taken to task and torn apart, live on national television by Representative Peter Roskam (R-IL 6th District), an ethically-challenged (the House Committee on Ethics found "insufficient evidence"), five-term congressman from Illinois. Representative Roskam was challenging the Secretary on President Obama's Libya policies. It was a devastating indictment.

Representative Roskam posited that the administration's policies on Libya, which led to the succesfull overthrow of Libyan autocrat Muammar Qadhafi, also led to the failure of Libya as a state. Roskam insisted it was all Clinton’s doing, her creation alone. Roskam drove home his premise with "You saw it. You drove it. You articulated it. And you persuaded people. Did I get that wrong?" He argued Clinton and Clinton alone, convinced President Obama to assist in overthrowing the Qadhafi regime in Libya. He argued she singlehandedly did this over the objections of Vice President Biden, Secretary of Defense Gates, and the National Security Council. His challenge didn't end there.

Roskam went on to argued that it was Secretary Clinton who persuaded Russian President Vladimir Putin to abstain on voting against UN resolution 1973. This devastating indictment dangerously used a double-edged sword. In order to convincingly prove that, while in charge of foreign policy as Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton exercised supremely, poor judgment, and was proven to be exceptionally wrong -- he had...

The Church is not a religion or an Institution as some might believe. The Church is the body of Jesus Christ throughout the world. Persecution of Christians is on the rise. Soon Matthew 24 will be at our own doorstep.

Brother Dumitru Duduman chose extreme torture by the Communist police instead of giving information that would have led to the suffering of his Christian brethren. How does one prepare for that level of persecution?

There is only one way. You must be sold out to Jesus Christ. As Christians we must live a life of complete obedience to Jesus Christ. Repentance, holiness, prayer, fasting, reading the Word of God and hiding it in our hearts is not an option. There can be no compromise with the world. To be holy is to be separated. If you are a true Christian Pastor or Evangelist, your name is the one that will be left out of every important discussion pertaining to world religion. The worldly and religious both hate true Christianity because it exposes them for what they are. Hypocrites.

When the news media advertises a man as the most famous evangelist in America and prints not one word of criticism about him, you can be sure that man does not represent Jesus Christ. He is a counterfeit.

When the world comes to a stand still over a religious figure whose speeches are political and whose doctrine cannot be found in the King James Bible you can be sure that man does not represent Jesus Christ. He comes in his own name.

When a televangelist is repeatedly making the top of the New York Times best sellers list, it is a sign the world loves him. Jesus said the world would hate you. Why are some men loved by the world? They are of the world and the world loves its own.

These are the Words of Jesus Christ:

If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you. If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out...

Afghan officials said Rokhsahana (her image pixelated) was stoned to death about a week ago in a Taliban-controlled area just outside Firozkoh (AFP Photo/)​

The story of a young woman who was married against her will and then stoned to death after she was caught eloping with a man her own age is heart wrenching.

What would Jesus do?

It is written:

....he lifted himself up and said unto them, He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her. And again he stooped down, and wrote on the ground. And they which heard it, being convicted by their own conscience, went out one by one, beginning at the eldest, even unto the last: and Jesus was left alone, and the woman standing in the midst. When Jesus had lifted up himself, and saw none but the woman, he said unto her, Woman, where are those thine accusers? hath no man condemned thee? She said, No man, Lord. And Jesus said unto her, Neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no more.
John 8:7-11

Perhaps there is no greater picture of the love, mercy and forgiveness of God than in this particular story. Many theologians have speculated about what Jesus was writing on the ground. Was it the names of the men who were ready to stone her to death? Perhaps they had slept with her!

The Scriptures do not tell us. What we do know is that Jesus said to them, He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her. Not one of those men cast that first stone. Jesus spoke the truth and the truth set them free. In an instant they knew they had no grounds to do what they were about to do.

What has happened to this young girl in Afghanistan is wrong. The motive for her execution was religious yet not of God. This is not God condemning a young woman to death for her sins but rather a group of misguided, religious zealots who are blind to their own wretched, naked, sinful condition.

My Pastor has a saying, "God fix me first". I believe if these men were to examine their own...
