The World Council of Churches (WCC) is holding its annual "World Week for Peace in Palestine Israel" (WWPPI) this week, calling on Israel to release jailed terrorists - despite the severity of their crimes and the abundance of terrorists immediately returning to terror.
Jan and Anita are interviewed by host Jonathan Bernis both weeks. Anita shares her uplifting story, in part, and Jan talks about both Germany and America letting government become their god. Jan authored Anita's book, "Trapped in Hitler's Hell: A Young Jewish Girls Discovers the Messiah's Faithfulness in the Midst of the Holocaust." There is now a 75-minute documentary film that accompanies the book, put out by World Net Daily.

The new year that began last week on Rosh Hashanah (year 5775 by Jewish reckoning) is a biblically-mandated shmita year in which all farmland is to lie fallow.
While the weekly Shabbat (Sabbath) is a day of rest for man, the shmita is to be a year of rest for the land every seventh year. It is commanded in Exodus 23:10–11, which reads:
You may plant your land for six years and gather its crops. But during the seventh year, you must leave it alone and withdraw from it. The needy among you will then be able to eat just as you do, and whatever is left over can be eaten by wild animals. This also applies to your vineyard and your olive grove.
It is estimated that some 5,000 Israeli farmers obey the above commandment, and the state sets aside around USD $28.5 million to support them during a year without crops to sell.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) confirmed on Tuesday that a patient being treated at a Dallas hospital has tested positive for Ebola, the first case diagnosed in the United States.
The patient left Liberia on September 19 and arrived in the United States on September 20, CDC director, Dr. Tom Frieden told reporters at a press conference Tuesday. It's the first patient to be diagnosed with this particular strain of Ebola outside of Africa.
An author and political activist says the Democratic Party is clearly controlled by far left-wing radicals who want to create a one-party state.
Recently The Washington Free Beacon obtained some unpublished correspondence between Hillary Clinton and 1960s-era left-wing radical Saul Alinsky. The letters revealed a close relationship between Clinton and Alinsky, who wrote Rules for Radicals, a controversial guide to the ends-justifies-means approach to power and wealth redistribution through community activism.
David Horowitz is a former member of the communist party who has now become a conservative and is the founder and CEO of the David Horowitz Freedom Center.
Monday on Fox News Channel's "On The Record," former Rep. Allen West (R-FL) said President Barack Obama was derelict in his duty as commander-in-chief when he didn't take the rise of ISIS earlier in the year seriously.
West said, "First of all in the military leaders take responsibility. They don't take credit. for this person, who has been receiving daily intelligence briefings that he has had left on his desk, has not been reading. For this president and for the entire world, who saw ISIS cross over the border into Iraq take out Fallujah and Ramadi back in February, he referred to them as a junior varsity team, a jv team, obviously he underestimated."
Globalism and a global religion march on. . .
Standing among the throng of people in New York, as well as the hundreds of thousands of others around the world (including 40,000 in London), I was struck by what a unifying power a common enemy can be. On Sunday, not only were there groups of Methodists and Baptists rubbing shoulders with Catholics and Presbyterians, there were Christians marching with Muslims, Jews, Pagans, Atheists and Baha'i. Anti-capitalist protesters stood alongside 'Concerned Moms for the Climate', doctors, firemen and vegans held banners next to indigenous people and victims of Hurricane Katrina. Almost every conceivable strand of society was represented in the huge column of humanity which snaked its way through the high rise blocks of Manhattan.
The list of experts who teach that Russia, Iran and others will attack Israel in a future war called the Battle of Gog and Magog is impressive (Ezek. 38-39). So for the sake of brevity, I will simply state that God will put a hook in the jaws of Russia's leader (Ezek. 38:4) and drag him and his allies into Israel in the latter days (Ezek. 38:16) and latter years (Ezek. 38:8). And I will make eight points about this in connection with current events.
First, Israel attacking Iran's nuclear facilities is not the Battle of Gog and Magog. But, if Israel attacks Iran's nuclear facilities, Russia and Iran have said they will counterattack and that could be the Battle of Gog and Magog.
I wasn't surprised when fellow culture warriors, like our very own Michael Brown, conservative blogger Matt Barber, Concerned Women for America's Janice Shaw Crouse and others landed on the Human Rights Campaign's (HRC) hate list.
The world's largest gay-activist organization last week issued a report called "The Export of Hate" that called out a network of American, conservative Christian leaders "who are working tirelessly to undercut LGBT people around the world at every turn."
People I work with day in and day out are on that list—and not a single one of them is a hate monger.
A sobering speech at the U.N. about the "master faith" and its quest for global dominance.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu delivered a powerful and sobering speech to the United Nations General Assembly on September 29th. He said he came from Jerusalem to speak on behalf of the Israeli people and to "expose the brazen lies spoken from this very podium against my country and the brave soldiers who defend it."
"Truth must always be spoken, especially here, in the United Nations," the prime minister said to an audience of government leaders and delegates not used to hearing the truth spoken in the UN on issues relating to the Jewish state.
