Israeli flag waving over the Sea of GalileeTuesday, 1 March 2016 | Why do Christians stand with Israel? Arguably, everybody wonders. For Christians who align themselves with the Jewish state, the question poses a challenge to explain. That is because most Christians ask it with inflections that mean, how could you?

In fact, from its earliest days in Rome, Christian history sided with those who regarded Jewish homelessness and suffering as God's judgment for rejecting Jesus as Messiah. Replacing the Jews as God's "chosen people," Christianity asserted that it alone was the rightful heir to all of God's biblically recorded blessings and promises.

Undyed wool textile typical of Iron Age TimnaWednesday, 2 March 2016 | Deep in the south of Israel's Negev Desert, Timna Valley is the location of ancient copper mines that archaeologists say went into production 7,000 years ago. Most also believe they are the location of copper mines used by King Solomon. That theory was strengthened last week by the announcement of the discovery of 3,000-year-old fabrics and seeds that date to the time of Israel's golden age under the administrations of King David and his son, Solomon.

 The find was uncovered by Dr. Erez Ben-Yosef of Tel Aviv University [TAU]. Ben-Yosef and his team announced their discovery of "an extensive fabric collection of diverse color, design and origin."

A broadcast for Muslim mothers to teach their children hatred toward Jews Thursday, 3 March 2016 | For years, watchdog groups in Israel have sounded the alarm about a pandemic of propaganda in Palestinian textbooks. The warning was that children under the tutelage of these texts would become dangerous and implacable enemies of the Jewish state. Today, after six months of murderous terror attacks against Israelis, many by children, it appears those warnings have become a sobering reality.

Ten years ago one watchdog group, Palestinian Media Watch, published a report about Palestinian schoolbooks that presented "a world without Israel." That report delineated assertions made in classroom materials that depicted conflict with Israel as an Islamic holy war, portrayed maps of "Palestine" on which Israel does not exist, denied the Holocaust, and depicted all Palestinians as victims of the "Zionist entity."

  Sadik Gulec/shutterstock.com Gaza is ramping up for another war with Israel and openly says so. Hamas leader Ismael Haniyeh is pledging to attack and Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu is pledging a devastating response. As a result, there is talk today in Israel that another Gaza war might be only months away.

Experts in Israel say that Hamas has as many tunnels today as it had just before it started its war with Israel in the summer of 2014. Spending upward of US $140 million per year since that conflict ended less than two years ago, tunnel reconstruction has been proceeding at a fast pace.

The world does not know it, or does not want to, but the historical record is undeniable: admiration of Adolph Hitler has been part-and-parcel of the Palestinian movement since the Fuhrer came to power in 1933. For this reason, it is a sober but not surprising reality that Hitler's popularity is making a strong comeback among those who call themselves Palestinians. On the other hand, it is jolting to see his exploding popularity in today's Europe and all across the internet. Hitler may be dead, but as Islamic Palestinianism gains ascendancy on the world stage, his rabid spirit of anti-Semitism has returned.
