Update: Timeline of Terror

Palestinian and Arab Terrorism against Israel

Palestinian and Arab terrorist attacks against Israel have left at least 27 dead and over 200 wounded, including an American citizen. 

The Palestinians conduct the terror, encouraged by the Palestinian authority. When the IDF fights back in defense and a terrorist is killed, the Arabs and Palestinians scream to the UN that Israel is the evil occupier that is indiscriminately killing Arabs. The UN has acted against Israel, but fortunately the US Congress and Senate has stood strong telling the Palestinians to stop inciting the violence.

While the Liberals, the Methodists Church, the Presbyterian Church, and liberal colleges fall for the lies of the enemy and call to Boycott, Divest and Sanction Israel, we MUST stand in the truth. We must stand for Biblical truth and the truth on the ground. Iranian and Arab propaganda against the Jewish people, Israel, now is far too similar to the propaganda of the Nazi’s before the Holocaust, which caused the Christians of that day to not act when the Jewish brothers were attacked and massacred.

Never again. We will not be silent. The truth must get out.
