The Martyrs

posted by jfletcher

While walking through the Muslim Quarter of Jerusalem’s Old City earlier this year, I noticed posters in the window of a sweets shop. I wondered how many tourists would understand what the posters are. As is popular in Palestinian culture, […]

Murder, Inc.

posted by jfletcher

Palestinians decry the Israelis’ security barrier, erected in the face of withering terror attacks. I am greatly disturbed by the condemnation of the barrier by Western Christians, who increasingly affirm the Palestinian narrative. Bottom line: the security barrier (called an […]

Nakba XVII

posted by jfletcher

The title of this post is tongue-in-cheek. Many readers no doubt would think it overly sarcastic. Yet the Arab obsession with seeing everything Jewish in the Middle East as a disaster makes the title not too far off the mark. […]

British “seconds”

posted by jfletcher

After the UN’s Partition Plan was approved on November 29, 1947, everyone knew hostilities had only just begun. Both the British and the French realized that trying to manage a blood feud between two peoples was a losing proposition, so […]

The Nakba

November 29 marks the 64th anniversary of the “Partition Plan,” approved by the UN. The plan, which passed by a majority vote, called for the establishment of a Jewish state and a Palestinian Arab state, on what was left of […]

A Blessing on the Temple Mount

posted by jfletcher

When my son and I visited Israel over the summer, we visited the Temple Mount in Jerusalem. Since the Muslim wakf is in charge of the area, they frown on non-Muslims praying or reading their Bibles. I was actually ushered […]

Who’s the Primitive?

posted by jfletcher

I once read a long-time Bible scholar who claimed that Job was really sort of an imaginary figure created by a Hebrew writer. The scholar also went on to say that no one in Job’s time (perhaps the second millenium […]

Jewish conspiracy?

posted by jfletcher

I’m constantly amazed not only at the number of Jewish conspiracy theories, but also by the sheer audacity of them. A new book by Dr. Alex Grobman, License to Murder: The Enduring Threat of the Protocols of the Elders of […]

Israel Can’t Lose, Part 2

posted by jfletcher

It is historically obvious that Israel’s many enemies have all gone the way of the dodo bird. Assyria, Babylon…the Nazis. A fresh wave of Palestinian terrorism has been launched against the state of Israel in the last century, virtually unabated. […]

Israel Can’t Lose

posted by jfletcher

In the 37th chapter of Isaiah—you should read it—we find the amazing story of Sennacherib, the powerful king of the brutal Assyrians, who came against Judah in the eighth century B.C. Sennacherib himself was arrogant and boastful. Hezekiah, king of […]

Human Nature Through History
Humanity never really changes. We often think "people are worse" now than ever before. Part of that is the 24/7 news cycle we can't seem to escape from. Yet I'm often struck by the commonality between eras and generations. The cuneiform ...

The Walking Path
We are all on our own individual journey. No matter who we are or where we live, we have similar issues. Even if we are not outwardly emotional or appear to be stoic, the big questions of life confront each one of us at some point. At his ...

Reject Apathy
I just returned from the Mid-America Prophecy Conference, seeing many dear friends. The conversations alone were salve for a tired soul. The very language I just used hearkens back to the “old time religion” that is largely gone from our ...

Pro Israel Support Surging
At a time when anti-Semitism is on the rise globally—from the Middle East to Europe to college campuses—there is also a lot of good news for pro Israel supporters. Christians United for Israel (CUFI) is nearing three million members, a ...
