ATTACK IS THE BEST FORM OF DEFENSE

By Jan Willem Van der Hoeven|

"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.

Then you will know that the Lord makes a distinction between Egypt and Israel. (Exodus 11:6,7)
