One of the most discussed and divisive subjects both religious and political on an international scale is the Middle East Arab-Israeli conflict. Most people don’t understand the dynamics, but it is inescapable because of the immense media attention. Political tensions...
It’s quite amazing how the State of Israel at this moment in time, has become a mirror image of the two sides of Prime Minister Netanyahu’s operating styles. Internally, whilst the raison d’etre for the formation of this coalition government was to fight Covid 19, it...
The promise of peace between Israel and two Arab states—the signing of the Abraham Accords—who would not exult? All who love the Lord God of Israel, who want their hearts to beat in time with His, and those who know about even a fraction of what the Jews have endured,...
Keir Starmer, the post-Corbyn leader of the British Labour party acted swiftly to demote a Member of Parliament who tweeted an article containing a paragraph linking Israel to the killing of George Floyd.
