“Free Palestine”

posted by jfletcher

Although I am usually shouted-down, if I say so among liberals who support the Palestinians, I have a different view of their drive for statehood. It is a view seen up-close. For some time, those who support Israel have pointed […]

Independence in Palestine

posted by jfletcher

Just some historical detail for you, in light of the drive for statehood by the Palestinians. On the afternoon of May 14, 1948, Jewish Zionist leader David Ben Gurion rose to speak at a theatre in Tel Aviv, steps from […]

Can we laugh?

At an outdoor mall in Jerusalem this summer, I felt as if I were in a place of limbo. The mall begins just steps from the Old City’s Jaffa Gate, and extends northwestward, into the western part of the city. […]

Palestine: Poster-Child of the Left

posted by jfletcher

Since Oslo, when Israel and the Palestinians ostensibly began negotiating for a peaceful solution to their conflict, I have noticed a trend in the West to talk about a place called “Palestine.” Like Shangri-La, it has seemed to be a […]

Mapping-It-Out

posted by jfletcher

The issue of statehood for the Palestinians is front-and-center on the global stage right now. This at a time when other major issues are swirling: the global economy, natural disasters, etc. The theme of this blog is that the biblical […]

What Started it All

posted by jfletcher

I’m doing this from memory, but I believe that I read in Sir Martin Gilbert’s epic work, Israel, that the first all-Jewish town (Petah Tikvah) was settled in 1882. This was a watershed event, and one that has huge implications […]

A Day of Rage

posted by jfletcher

Like everyone else, I have a story. I was coming out of a college class on the morning of September 11, 2001. A student was watching a small television set in the lobby, and as we began to understand that […]

Pray for the Peace of Jerusalem

posted by jfletcher

Psalm 122:6 fairy commands us to pray for the peace of Jerusalem. This often-battered city, now in the hands of the Israelis, is a focal point for international intrigue. One must ask himself why this is so, but at Prophecy […]

Palestine

Saeb Erekat, a long-time Palestinian negotiator with the Israelis, said the other day that when the Palestinians go to the UN to seek statehood, the international community will be obliged to get rid of the “occupation.” The latter word is […]

Out of Egypt

posted by jfletcher

The news that Israel’s embassy has been attacked by Egyptians in Cairo is most distressing, especially considering the peace treaty between the two countries for the past 30 years. In Bible prophecy, Egypt is one of the most prominently mentioned […]

Goodbye, “Big Cat”

posted by jfletcher

“And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment…” (Hebrews 9:27) I’m on this kick lately, this nostalgia kick. And another former University of Oklahoma football legend has died: Lee Roy Selmon. Considered one […]

“Buddy, can you spare $11 billion?”

posted by jfletcher

I was in my little local, quaint post office earlier today. It’s made of brick and has gorgeous maple trees out front. During Christmas, they set-out a red metal mailbox marked “North Pole.” Been that way forever. A lot of […]

The Trigger

posted by jfletcher

There are several amazing prophecies in the Bible’s book of Zechariah. At the very end of the book, we see a scenario in which the nations of the world come against “Jerusalem.” Why? I submit that this occurs for one […]

Anomalies

posted by jfletcher

On our recent trip to Israel, Jonathan took note of a hilarious oddity we saw as we emerged from the shopping bazaars of Jerusalem’s Old City. Fastened overhead was a sign that one might hardly take notice of in, say, […]

Rebels Without a Cause
Those who dismiss the late James Dean as merely a brooding, self-absorbed young actor miss the point, I think. Dean, who evidently suffered both from the early loss of his mother and from abuse at the hands of a trusted clergyman, really was ...

The King of Zionism
Each year, various groups and individuals seek to politicize the memory of Martin Luther King, on the national holiday in his honor. So I will, too. Perhaps a little-known fact about “MLK” is that he was a strong supporter of the ...

Kay Wilson—Choosing Life
Today marks the fourth anniversary of the horrific Palestinian terror attack on my friend, Kay Wilson, and her friend, Kristine Luken. Kay survived, somehow; Kristine, a Christian, did not. Their attackers targeted them because they were ...
