Reactions to President Trump’s earth-shaking decision on Jerusalem prove the stage is set for the battle of the ages:February 1, 2018 | admin
Apocalyptic battle will be over the status of Jerusalem
A film by Hugh Kitson
Film maker Hugh Kitson’s newest release has coincided with the Centenary of the Balfour Declaration. Having had its world premiere in August, screenings in Australia were closely followed by events in New Zealand and then around the world.
In ‘Whose Land?’ Hugh boldly tackles the political elephant in the room, the issue over Israel’s legitimacy, and the rights of the Jewish people over the land. Vastly different to other films produced by Israelis or other Jewish sources, this production deals fairly with documents and evidence, often showing the actual text on camera for the viewer to draw their own conclusions.
Peers call for Palestine recognition
But British Government refuses to apologise over Balfour Declaration
by Charles Gardner
British politicians are once again demonstrating the moral confusion that has seen them pass so many laws contradicting the biblical precepts upon which our civilisation was based.
The latest example is the suggestion from an influential House of Lords committee that the UK Government recognise a new state of Palestine.
Justin Welby described his 12-day-trip to Israel as a “pastoral pilgrimage”
The Archbishop of Canterbury told Israeli and Palestinian leaders in May that he believes there’s a window of opportunity for peace. Justin Welby said: “It does seem, listening to many, that… Perhaps there is a moment of opportunity coming that may not repeat itself for a while.”
New President Macron won’t upset France’s relationship with Israel
While Israelis have been upset with Google for recognising ‘Palestine’ as a state, Arabs living in Israel and France may be disappointed that their new president has said he will do no such thing.
Emmanuel Macron’s opponent in the recent presidential race, Marine Le Pen, had made abundantly clear her frustration with, if not outright disdain for, the Islamic world, according to online magazine ‘Israel Today’; thus Arab hopes would have rested with ‘liberal centrist’ Mr Macron.
Peace prize backing for terrorist
Former South African Archbishop Desmond Tutu has joined an ongoing campaign to nominate a jailed Palestinian terrorist for the Nobel Peace Prize.
Marwan Barghouti, who is serving five life sentences for his role in planning suicide terror attacks in Israel, has already won the support of leading Belgian MPs and a delegation of mayors from French cities, and is widely seen as a prospective successor to PA president Mahmoud Abbas, which means he could be following in the footsteps of peace prize winner Yasser Arafat.

PA to delay statehood bid
Palestinian Authority Foreign Minister Riad Malki told the Bethlehem-based Maan News Agency that the PA leadership has decided to delay a bid to seek recognition for a Palestinian State at the UN Security Council.
According to the ICEJ (International Christian Embassy), he added that the indefinite delay comes following strong pressure from the US and a failure by the PA’s UN delegation to secure the necessary support of nine members of the Security Council.
Christian Embassy condemns Jerusalem murder rampage
THE INTERNATIONAL CHRISTIAN EMBASSY JERUSALEM (ICEJ) has condemned the murder rampage which left four rabbis dead and 13 others injured in an early morning synagogue service.
Howard Stern reports on a visit to Bethlehem this December
IT IS MY BELIEF THAT WITHIN FIVE YEARS we will see the West Bank Christians in a similar condition to the Copts in Egypt, Gaza’s Christian remnant and those in Syria and Iraq, if Europe does not act decisively.

Untold stories of Palestinian Christians
Amid the myriad of narratives given by those who seek to express an opinion about the Palestinian-Israeli dispute, there is a voice that has been entirely lost.
It is the voice of the persecuted Palestinian Christians, caught between a rock and a hard place. Yes, we have the likes of Kairos and Sabeel, but these do not speak for all Christians in the Palestinian Territories – not by a long way, in fact.
