The emerging treaty between the western powers and Iran did not surprise me at the least.

It already had its roots firmly placed the first time Obama went to great lengths to appease the Arab world immediately after his election. Now he is doing it for Iran. Unbeknownst to Obama and the European community, they have triggered a series of future events, which threaten to permanently destabilize the Middle East and, dare I say, the entire world.

Now, with just the framework agreement in place and the treaty’s final terms not even agreed upon, Russia is the first to break ranks and casually lift the embargo on the sale of weapons to Iran. They will not be the last. Continue Reading…

I celebrated Passover in Israel this year!

It was my first time ever, after over 30 trips, to be in Israel and share the Passover Seder with Ari, Shira, their daughter, Shani, and her 4 children…as well as guests from Ethiopia, UK, and the USA.

We gathered and remembered…we remembered being set free from slavery. We remembered the miracles of provision. We celebrated Yeshua, the Messiah, who frees us from sin. Continue Reading…

I watched in horror as the proud negotiators and the Iranian representatives announced that they reached and signed a frame agreement regarding Iran’s nuclear program.

Flashing cameras, smiling faces, excitement in the air…. It was quite a sight… Yet all I could think of was “Lord, you won’t tarry much longer…”

While the west celebrates this illusion of preventing Iran from acquiring nuclear WMDs, Iranian media is proudly announcing Iran’s victory over the world they hate so much and seek to destroy.

If you for one moment thought that maybe this plan of negotiating with the evil regime was a good idea – think again. Continue Reading…

On March 17, 2015 Israelis will be electing a new government.

The electoral process in Israel is quite intricate. There are twenty-four different parties battling to receive the needed voting threshold of at least 3.25% in order to get into the Knesset this year. (This essentially means that among the 120 Knesset Members, each party will have at least four representatives.)

HOW ELECTORAL PROCESS WORKS

Voters in Israel only have to put one piece of paper into the ballot – that with the name of a party they want to see forming the government. You see, here we don’t vote for specific people, even though our vote means the leader of the party we choose, if they get the majority of the votes, will be the next Prime Minister of Israel… That is, of course, if they are able to form a coalition of at least 61 Knesset Members, and if Israel’s President gives them the task of forming the government in the first place.
