ISIS Avenges Turkey’s Rapproachment With Israel?

Maybe the Islamic State has already answered that question.

It seems it was just yesterday I read the amazing news that Turkey had reached out to Israel and they had patched things up diplomatically.

Now I see this on the Drudge Report:

ISIS strikes Istanbul International Airport

And I wonder if ISIS means this as a signal to Erdogan, Turkey’s leader.

Whatever the case, may God use His people in the area to convey His love and provision. May the Gospel’s message of forgiveness and peace shine its brilliant light amid such evil and darkness.

RISE OF ARAB ARMY

I saw that headline on the Drudge Report early this morning. He linked it to an LA Times story that includes this quote:

Egypt’s President Abdel Fattah Sisi endorsed the creation of a joint military force to defend Arab nations.

Sisi said the Arab world was at a critical crossroads and facing unprecedented difficulties.

Holocaust Remembrance Day and the Power of Israel

It seems 70 years is too long for the world to remember...

Remember Birkenau!

As he closed his Holocaust Remembrance Day speech today, Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu declared:

Unlike our situation during the Holocaust, when we were like leaves on the wind, defenseless, now we have great power to defend ourselves, and it is ready for any mission. This power rests on the courage and ingenuity of the soldiers of the IDF and our security forces. It is this power that enabled us, against all odds, to build the State of Israel.
