Gazan terrorists launched multiple rockets at Israel at 5 AM Monday morning. One rocket that was going to hit Ashkelon was intercepted by Iron Dome. The other three landed in open areas.

Israel is set to name 26 terrorists today that is will be releasing, including 5 Gazans, and just the other week uncovered terror tunnels leading from Gaza, into Israeli towns.

On Sunday, two mortars from Gaza landed in Israel. No damage was reported in that attack.

    Praying for everyone.

  2. They’re doing this to claim they pressured Israel into releasing prisoners.

  4. Now 13 rebel groups have joined Al-Nusra which is linked to Al-Qaeda. The West has been backing the “good” Syrian rebels which have resorted to canabalism and other atrocities. The question is of course; where do we go from here? Also linked to the Syrian war is Iran. The window for Iran to give up the aspects of it’s nuclear program that “give the strong impression it can be used for military purposes" to come to a full end. With all of this volatility if anything should go wrong the war written about in Isaiah 17 may take place. Many will die on both sides and Damascus Syria would be destroyed. In July of 2012 I wrote a small booklet that speaks of salvation and some of what the Bible says will happen in the end times as well as what will happen during the period known as the seven (360 day) year tribulation and other soon to take place events. I don’t accept donations and it’s free. It’s about 6 or 7 pages, so it’s a short read.
