Inner Ring (Countries or terror groups that border Israel)
“Palestinian report gives count of Jews who ‘breached’ the holiest site in Judaism, accusing them of ‘Talmudist prayers.'”
Why are Palestinians so afraid of Jewish prayer? Get they are offended but in what way does it harm them??
“PA chairman’s movement encourages a “popular struggle” against Israel in statement marking Land Day.”
It is the heart of the conflict. The Palestinians are trying to steal it from the Israelis. God said to Abram:
“To your descendants I have given this land, from the river of Egypt to the great river, the River Euphrates….” Genesis 15:17-19
Israel has already been cheated out of promised land. See the map below, this is what really belongs to Israel.
But the Arabs want more. They want what is left of Israel. They want it all. And the world gives it to them. So yes, lets talk about ‘Land Day’. How the world took land promised to Israel by God and gave it to the Arabs. It was not theirs to give.
Outer Ring (countries or terror groups that are close to but not bordering Israel)
“French FM warns world must be prepared for military involvement, as militias oppose newly arrived UN-backed unity government head.”
Was this mess not created by the US?
“Riyadh is likely to start pressing the Europeans to brand Hezbollah as a terror group. The Europeans have long argued that only the military wing of Hezbollah is terrorist and exempted the political party from sanctions. Israel has argued this is a dubious splitting of hairs since the party controls the fighters.
Riyadh has much more clout in Europe than Jerusalem. London and Paris are desperate to keep their lucrative arms sales relationships with Riyadh. They also need Saudi help to fight jihadist terrorism. If Riyadh presses hard, the Europeans will find it difficult to resist.”
“Young men like the perpetrators of the Brussels attacks refuse to embrace the social codes of Belgian life.”
