With only about 50,000 Palestinian Christians in the West Bank and Gaza, some Israeli, Messianic Jewish Christians want us to believe that Palestinian Christians are somehow a threat to the state of Israel. What they are really worried about is that millions of Christian Zionists in the U.S. might wake up to the injustices committed against all Palestinians, both Muslims and Christians, and choose compassion toward Palestinians rather than adhere to a blind faith toward the state of Israel. This is a fascinating report that covers the attack on the Christ At The Checkpoint conference held in Bethlehem, West Bank, Palestine in March, 2012. Originally, WHTT was invited to show our video, Christian Zionism: The Tragedy & The Turning, Part I at the conference but was dis-invited (due to Zionist pressure) and replaced with Israeli Messianic Jewish Christians addressing the conference who came back to bad mouth it.
We cover 4 items swirling around Israel. The U.S. House of Representatives voted 411 to 2 in favor of a "Let's Love Israel Even More" resolution (H.R. 4133 - "United States-Israel Enhanced Security Cooperation Act of 2012") with further promises of armaments and fidelity. Then, we look into the dominance by Israel in the field of drones. Seems that Israel is now manufacturing drones in the US and has FAA clearance to fly them. How convenient for the U.S., since we are now seem to favor remote control killing with drones (a large number of the U.S. drones are controlled by the C.I.A. [Creating Insurgents Abroad - our suggested name change to comply with truth in advertising laws]). We Hold These Truths' Chuck Carlson heard all about Israeli drones back in 2002 when he visited Gaza where Israel was deploying them for surveillance.
Chuck Carlson leads a very interesting study in the twenty third chapter of the book of Acts where the apostle Paul masterfully divides the Pharisees and Sadducee while the Roman guard looks on. There are some excellent principles in this lesson for followers of Christ today.
From Federal Reserve System's Chairman Ben Bernanke telling the American people they "are prepared to do more" to recover the economy to the election results in France and Greece, Chuck Carlson talks about the financial crisis that is coming upon us. Take this podcast for a test drive. You'll find it most interesting.
This is a follow-up story to last week's program about Operation Cast Lead. Two moving articles from the Israeli newspaper, Haaretz, fly in the face of the Israeli P.R. campaign to promote the IDF as the most "moral" army in the world.
