WHEN THE 70TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE LIBERATION OF AUSCHWITZ WAS CELEBRATED JUST A YEAR AGO, FEW COULD HAVE IMAGINED THAT ANTI-SEMITISM WOULD GET EVEN WORSE. BUT IT HAS…
THE PAST YEAR HAS SEEN TWO SHOCKING terrorist attacks on Paris, with Jews specifically targeted on both occasions, along with a wave of stabbings and shootings of innocent bystanders in Israel itself.
Pastor Saeed’s Iran jail hell over
But 90 other Christians are still jailed for their faith in Iran
By Andrew Boyd

The world’s ‘deafening silence’ as Israel faces threats from Iran, terrorism and IS alone
Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu has laid the blame for the recent upsurge in Palestinian terrorism squarely at the feet of PA chief Mahmoud Abbas, accusing him of incitement and supporting extreme groups.
“I believe it’s time to tell the truth about the causes of Palestinian terrorism,” he told a press conference marking the visit of UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon. “It’s not the settlements. It’s not the peace process. It’s the desire to destroy the State of Israel, pure and simple.”
Israel the ultimate target for Islamists engaged in ‘holy war’
by Charles Gardner
Although originally unintentional, I am planning on an official home town launch of my new book, Peace in Jerusalem, on the anniversary of 9/11.
But the timing turns out to be appropriate enough because the narrative provides the answer to the ongoing terrorist threat we all face 14 years on. I will explain that in due course.
As I have said before, the ultimate target on September 11, 2001, was not the Twin Towers, or even America as such, but Israel.
SHACKLED PASTOR SAEED ABEDINI WAS TASER’D BY INTELLIGENCE OFFICIALS WHEN THEY INTERROGATED HIM OVER NEW BOGUS CHARGES.
Yet a few days later at the UN in New York, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani hinted at a ‘prisoner swap’ for Saeed and other Christians imprisoned in his jails.
YOU WOULD THINK that the opinion of one million people would matter to a USA President – but it seems not in the case of Barack Obama.
While the President reportedly enjoyed a rare ‘father-daughter’ time with his daughters Malia and Sasha, all smiles following the Iranian nuclear deal – thousands of miles away American Pastor Saeed Abedini sat in his jail cell in Rajai Shahr Prison in Karaj, oceans away from his own children, waiting for the next violent blow.
A COUNTRY credited with being the world’s chief sponsor of terror, and which has consistently called for the destruction of Israel, has been given the go-ahead to generate nuclear energy following an international agreement, sparking fears of a global threat to peace.
As the prophet Isaiah said, the morning is coming – but first there must be night…This is an impassioned plea for the Church to arise and pray…
HAVE YOU EVER had a sleepless night when you keep looking at the clock and wondering how much longer it will be before you see daylight?
If you have ever sat with a sick person through the night and longed for the morning you will understand a message given by the prophet Isaiah (Isaiah 21.11–12). He lived in a day before clocks and watches so he describes a man calling out to the watchman patrolling the streets.
