Articles of the Day 5/16/14: Bending The World
“As John Kerry begins blaming others for the latest collapse in the Israel-Palestinian peace process, perhaps the lesson for all is that the USA should not be the one to lead them.”
“JERUSALEM (AP) — U.S. Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel pledged to Israeli leaders Friday that the U.S. “will do what we must” to prevent the Jewish state’s greatest fear of a nuclear-armed Iran. Hagel made the public pledge in a statement at talks in Jerusalem with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.”
“The Tel Aviv District Court’s decision to send former Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert to six years in prison for corruption has prompted calls in the Arab world for endorsing Israel’s standards of accountability, transparency and justice.”
“Deputy Knesset Chairman Moshe Feiglin argued Friday morning that the political right has once again proven that when it’s in power, it doesn’t really know how to rule.”
“Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan made media headlines Thursday, after he screamed an anti-israel slur before sending his security forces to beat a protester.”
It can no longer be denied the Erdogan government is anti-Semitic. Israel could very well find itself in a shooting war with Turkey in the Med in the next 5 years.
“Four terrorists hurl firebombs at bus near Hevron, engulfing it in flames, but media ignores story, preferring to cover Jewish graffiti.”
“Official daily publishes op-ed decrying ‘Zionist gangs’ who invaded Palestine, says Jewish state a ‘monstrosity’.”
“Is it too much to suggest, then, that the Arabs’ problem with the Jews is not actually about the Jews, but about the Arab world’s own struggles with modernity, identity and political dysfunction?”
“Pope Francis seemingly feels safe in Bethlehem, plans to drive in open-top car, amid reports he will ‘declare himself Che Guevera of PA.'”
I think Christians should be wary of this Pope. He openly expresses support for homosexuality and endorses socialists policies in government. Now he appears to be promoting the Palestinian narrative. Watch him closely, he is bending the Bible to the world instead of the other way around.
“Economy Minister Naftali Bennett will meet in the coming days with Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and present a proposal to apply Israel’s sovereignty to Area C, beginning with the major settlement blocs, The Jerusalem Post has learned.”
“The Israeli Navy has begun installing phased-array radars on Sa’ar 5 and Sa’ar 4.5 vessels as part of a wider weapons and electronics upgrade, according to a senior naval source.”
“The US and Jordanian air forces are conducting their annual multi-national military exercise, codenamed Exercise Eager Tiger 2014, at an air base in northern Jordan.”
