Is Touring Israel Safe?

posted by jfletcher

I hear this all the time from people who have always dreamed of “visiting the Holy Land.” Everyone wants to do it, but too many express fears about the issue of safety. You don’t have to be a member of […]

The Birthplace of Jesus Christ

posted by jfletcher

It shouldn’t surprise that in the modern era, the traditional birthplace of Jesus, in Bethlehem, has become a tourist trap. Palestinian merchants smile at pilgrims and offer all sorts of trinkets. The first time I visited the Church of the […]

Hanukkah and the Ghost of Adam Sandler

posted by jfletcher

It is a reflection of the times in which we live, I think, that younger generations know what little history they do from listening to pop culture figures. Comedian Adam Sandler’s “Hanukkah song” is one such example. Actually, the holiday […]

The Palestinian Jesus

posted by jfletcher

The Blaze has reported that the mayor of Bethlehem, Victor Batarseh, hopes for a most unusual Christmas gift: “Christmas inspires peace on earth and goodwill toward men (as written in Luke 2:14), so one might wonder why the mayor of […]

Christopher Hitchens—The Seer

posted by jfletcher

Giggling and Sniggering

posted by jfletcher

Christians, especially conservative ones, often go out of their way to speak well of people who loathe them. I do think that sometimes this is done out of a conscious desire to appear likable and avoid being tagged as a […]

posted by jfletcher

The current surging Republican candidate for president, Newt Gingrich, generated a firestorm of criticism today when he asserted in an interview that the Palestinians are “invented.” In answering a question about Zionism, he said: “Remember, there was no Palestine as […]

Whenever I visit Israel, I see things not as a tourist, but as an…observer. It helps one discover the story behind the story. One afternoon, while visiting the Mount of Olives, I spent some time looking at the Seven Arches […]

Untold News

posted by jfletcher

My fascination with the Middle East leads me to extraordinary friendships. One such friendship—a new one—is with the folks at “Untold News” (www.untoldnews.org). Too often (okay, to be more precise: constantly), we hear only gloomy, depressing news from this troubled […]

What Does Obama Really Think About Islam?
This week, President Obama will visit a U.S. mosque for the first time. One wonders why he didn’t do this in the past, say, October 2012, ahead of his last election. Oh well, he’s probably not coldly calculating, right? Increasingly, ...

Holocaust Remembrance Day
Jew-hatred is thousands of years old. It is a spiritual sickness that comes from another dimension. As an evangelical Christian, I've had many conversations with Jewish friends who wonder why the world hates them. I believe this spiritual ...
