In that day there will be a highway from Egypt to Assyria, and the Assyrian will come into Egypt and the Egyptian into Assyria, and the Egyptians will serve with the Assyrians. In that day Israel will be one of three with Egypt and Assyria--a blessing in the midst of the land, whom the Lord of hosts shall bless, saying, "Blessed is Egypt My people, and Assyria the work of My hands, and Israel My inheritance." (Isaiah 19:23-25)
This region quoted by the prophet Isaiah includes the primary terrain where most of the recorded Biblical stories occurred.

"I think that anyone who is going to establish a Palestinian state today and evacuate lands is giving attack grounds to radical Islam against the state of Israel." - Benjamin Netanyahu' actual, documented pre-election statement that has been blatantly misreported by the media as the prime minister's rejection of a two state solution, a falsification deliberately perpetuated by Barack Obama.

With the rash of recent recriminations concerning the ostensible flip-flop of Israel's prime minister, conveyed through the disseminated misrepresentation of his pre-election remark (above), that he will not agree to the creation of a Palestinian state on his watch, and

Israel – Be Ready for John Kerry

By Jan Willem Van der Hoeven|

As US Secretary of State John Kerry boards his plane for yet another flight to the Middle East, here are a few requests Israel's government could have ready to make to its American guest.

On November 29, 1947 the General Assembly of the United Nations passed a resolution that forever changed the status of Jerusalem in relation to its position in the world. Resolution 181 was passed with hardly any notice. The full effect of this resolution is staggering!
