A new Israeli poll shows that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's job approval rating has suffered dramatically in the wake of the Gaza ceasefire, which many Israelis felt was premature. At the same time, another poll shows that Israel's right-wing parties would gain if new elections were held now.
As many Western politicians and religious leaders continue to perpetrate the propaganda that Islam is a religion of peace, noted culture expert and author Alex McFarland says that not only is Islam not a peaceful religion but it is also the second-worst thing to happen to humanity, behind the fall of mankind.
Pitched battles between President Bashar Assad's forces and Islamist rebels in Syria, fighting in the area of Quneitra spilled over into Israel Wednesday morning as an al-Qaeda linked rebel group reportedly took control of the only crossing between Israel and Syria.
A border monitoring group reported that Syrian rebels, including al-Qaeda's affiliate Al-Nusra Front, seized control of the border crossing.
Choudary claimed Christians are returning to Mosul, Iraq, because they have "realized life under Shariah is much better."
Hannity asked about Islam's treatment of women (Choudary said they "aren't slabs of meat in Islam"), about homosexuality under Islam (people "will not be doing this"), and handling rape cases, which under Islam requires four male witnesses ("if there are witnesses, of course they will be punished.")
Brian McLaren, grandfather of the emergent church, calls Bible prophecy an ''eschatology of abandonment'' of the church's real purpose (in his mind, creation care and social justice). The reality? About 2/3 of Scripture is prophecy. God told us to study prophecy. And the Jews paid a pretty hefty price for misunderstanding prophecy being fulfilled.

A bad situation turns seriously worse
Yesterday, Ukrainian President Petro O. Poroshenko declared that Russia had invaded his nation. Col. Andriy Lysenko, spokesman for the Ukrainian military, confirmed that two armored columns of Russian forces, replete with tanks and armored fighting vehicles, captured the town of Novoazovsk on the Sea of Azov near the Russian border. Ukrainian troops were forced to retreat in the face of superior fighting power that included Grad missiles launched from Russian territory. “Our border servicemen and guardsmen retreated as they did not have heavy equipment,” Lysenko said in a statement.

Iraq in Prophecy
I am not a prophet, but as I understand the Scriptures, this is just the beginning of a showdown in Babylon that will shake the world. As we approach the Tribulation period, I expect the Islamic State to be brutally crushed and the land of Babylon to be seized and secured by the Globalists with the help of the Kurds (Medes). Then, I expect the globalists to quickly rebuild the ancient city of Babylon to house their global religion and economic system. Finally, at the end of the Tribulation period, I expect the Kurds to use some of their modern weapons to destroy that city suddenly.
Why do people suffer? Why do we despair? The words of Jesus ring true throughout the centuries: "I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world." (John 16:33)
Every human born on this planet will experience pain but we are not alone in the fire; we can turn to Him when our hearts tell us there is no hope. The Bible, history, archaeology, eyewitness testimony -- all tell of a supernatural power -- a Being far greater than human frailty who can be reached through simple faith.
