The winter season

Winter is Israel’s rainy season, making it crucial to the nation’s water supply, with no rainfall occurring during the summer months. A typical winter in Israel lasts from November to May, though shorter winters, resulting in drought years, are common. During the winter months rainfall varies from heavy in the northern and central regions of the country to light in the northern Negev region. Rainfall in the southern Negev is negligible.

Occasional snowfall occurs at higher elevations throughout the country during the winter months.

The summer season

Israel’s summers are mostly dry and hot and typically last from May through late October. Summer conditions vary from region to region with the coastal plain experiencing humid weather, the hill regions experiencing little or no humidity and the Jordan Valley and Negev regions experiencing hot, dry semi-desert conditions.

The summer months bring periodic heat waves resulting from hot, dry desert winds from the east which cause temperatures to soar throughout the country. Rainfall is extremely rare during the summer months.

Spring and autumn are normally overlapped by the two predominate seasons, with the beginning of summer being marked by the end of the winter rains, and visa versa.

WHAT UTTER DECEPTION! THE PLO REJECTS ALL PEACE DEALS.

The PLO was instituted in 1964 three years before the six day war in June 1967 when Israel, in a war of self-defense, recovered the so-called “West Bank”, now seen and proclaimed by nearly everybody as the quintessence crux of the Middle East problem.
This however shows that the PLO (All Palestine needs to be liberated) was not formed to erect a Palestinian state on the ‘so called’ West Bank but was instituted to replace all of Israel with a Muslim Palestinian State.

The New Testament Basis for the Restoration of Israel

Jesus was asked by His disciples whether He would restore the kingdom to Israel at that time, to which He replied:
Therefore, when they had come together, they asked Him, saying, “Lord, will You at this time restore the kingdom to Israel?” And He said to them, “It is not for you to know times or seasons which the Father has put in His own authority.
