  3. (Worthy News) - Israel is the first country in the world to have flown the U.S.-made F-35 stealth fighter jet in combat, the commander of the Israeli air force said on Tuesday in remarks carried by the IDF's official Twitter account. Local media further quoted Maj. Gen. Amikam Norkin as saying in a speech to the chiefs of 20 foreign air forces convening in Israel: "We are flying the F-35 all over the Middle East and have already attacked twice on two different fronts." Norkin also presented a photograph of an Israeli F-35 overflying Beirut.

  4. (Worthy News) - Israeli jets have continued to strike targets in Syria following the recent Iranian missile barrage against IDF posts in the Golan Heights, a senior Israel Air Force officer said on Tuesday. “We can assume that there have been strikes since the last events in Syria. We have maintained our freedom of action over Syria,” he said during the Senior Air Force Conference in Herzliya. Stressing that Israel will continue to carry out air strikes in the war-torn country, he said that Israel will continue to work with “determination” to thwart the entrenchment of Iran in Syria and the arming of Hezbollah.

  5. (Worthy News) - U.S. and allied warplanes destroyed an Islamic State sleeper cell near the terror group’s former stronghold of Mosul Tuesday, ending with roughly 12 jihadists dead, military officials in Baghdad say. The strikes targeted a segment of underground bunkers and tunnels used by Islamic State, or ISIS, fighters to defend the northern Iraqi city against Iraqi troops, backed by U.S. and coalition airpower, during last year’s offensive to retake Mosul. The recent airstrikes come amid questions whether the White House and the Pentagon will maintain its military presence in Iraq to support Baghdad’s efforts to stamp out remaining ISIS cells, or withdraw U.S. troops from the country. The Trump administration has already indicated its desire to scale back American military forces battling the Islamic State in Syria.

  6. The Royal Wedding

    I should have mentioned that my Muslim raised friends loved the sermon....not just the wedding. So that is why I watched the sermon in particular on YouTube...and I agree he gave a good message about Jesus, considering he was speaking at a wedding, not a worship service. To me, any words speaking of our Lord and what He did, any Scripture verses quoted, any prayers sincerely prayed in His Name, even the hymns sung....any of this can be seeds planted in the hearts of someone. And this is what I pray and hope for in the hearts of my Muslim friends. Bishop Curry did all of the above in his sermon....so maybe someone who will never go into a church will be reached by what he said. That is my prayer and hope.
  7. (Worthy News) - Israeli Air Force jets targeted underground terror infrastructure in the northern Gaza Strip early Wednesday morning, the IDF said. Two further targets belonging to Hamas naval forces in Gaza were also targeted. Local residents said the strikes destroyed a boat moored in Gaza City, with no reports of casualties. They said the boat, which was set ablaze, was due to sail to meet a flotilla of boats hoping to reach Gaza. The IDF did not provide further details regarding the nature of the underground infrastructure.

  8. (Worthy News) - News reports have revealed the identity of a Cambridge University professor who fed information about the Trump campaign to the FBI but the national media have consistently declined to characterize the activity as spying, and are actively rejecting President Trump's push to call it spying. “A lot of people are saying they had spies in my campaign,” President Trump told reporters Tuesday at the White House. “If they had spies in my campaign that would be a disgrace to this country.” He added that it “would be one of the biggest insults anyone has ever seen” if it were confirmed that spies working under the Obama administration had infiltrated his campaign, which he described as “very illegal.” The Washington Post’s report on those comments said Trump was making a reference to a “confidential source” who the FBI used to “aid its investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election.” But the story disputed Trump’s suggestion that the FBI may have secretly spied on his campaign, and said there’s “no evidence to suggest that the source was inserted into the Trump campaign…” [ Source: Washington Examiner (Read More...) ] The post Media insist: FBI's source on Trump was an 'informant,' not a 'spy' appeared first on Worthy Christian News.

  9. This is why I am here, how about you?

    No, that map is incorrect. First of all, Palestine included what is the current nation of Jordan. Palestine was not a nation, and so no land was stolen from the Arabs. In fat, what your map shows is land that was distributed by the international community, not Israel. It was the British that took 75% of Palestine and gave it to the Arabs to be come Trans-Jordan, now simply known as the Kingdom of Jordan. The British divided the remaining 25% between the Palestinians and the Jews. So the reduction in land for the Palestinians was not because of a land grab, but the direct result of the British mandate. There were three attempts to create a Palestinian nation in 20th century: 1935, 1947, and 2000. Israel agreed to each plan. The Arabs rejected each plan. In fact, the Jews supported the 1936 plan that would have given more land the Palestinians than to the Jews.

  11. This is why I am here, how about you?

    But Israel didn't do any of that. In fact, Israel's human rights record is far, far better than any of the surrounding Muslim countries. In fact, Muslim countries have some of the worst human rights records in the world. Israel never forced the Palestinians out of their homes. The Arabs did that prior to the 1948 war of independence. If you bothered to study history, it was the Arabs, in preparation to destroy the fledgling Israeli nation, who told the Arabs living among the Jews to leave the area in advance of the planned Arab invasion go to the West Bank and Gaza. The plan was for them to return to their homes after the war was over. Israel petitioned the Palestinians to remain their home and offered them citizenship in Israel if they stayed in their homes. But Israel won the war. God's hand was on Israel and against the Muslims and God gave Israel the victory over a 6-nation alliance of Arab nations and the Palestinians were not allowed by the Arabs to return, although Israel offered to repatriate them. THE HISTORICAL EVIDENCE: "Even amidst the violent attacks launched against us for months past, we call upon the sons of the Arab people dwelling in Israel to keep the peace and to play their part in building the State on the basis of full and equal citizenship and due representation in all its institutions, provisional and permanent. "We extend the hand of peace and good-neighborliness to all the States around us and to their people, and we call upon them to cooperate in mutual helpfulness with the independent Jewish nation in its Land. The State of Israel is prepared to make its contribution in a concerted effort for the advancement of the entire Middle East." - David Ben-Gurion, in Israel's Proclamation of Independence, read on May 14, 1948, moments before the 6 surrounding Arab armies, trained and armed by the British, invaded the day-old Jewish microstate, with the stated goal of extermination. "The Arab armies entered Palestine to protect the Palestinians from the Zionist tyranny but, instead, THEY ABANDONED THEM, FORCED THEM TO EMIGRATE AND TO LEAVE THEIR HOMELAND, imposed upon them a political and ideological blockade and threw them into prisons similar to the ghettos in which the Jews used to live in Eastern Europe, as if we were condemmed to change places with them; they moved out of their ghettos and we occupied similar ones. The Arab States succeeded in scattering the Palestinian people and in destroying their unity. They did not recognize them as a unified people until the States of the world did so, and this is regrettable". - by Abu Mazen, from the article titled: "What We Have Learned and What We Should Do", published in Falastin el Thawra, the official journal of the PLO, of Beirut, in March 1976 "The first group of our fifth column consists of those who abandon their houses and businesses and go to live elsewhere. . . . At the first sign of trouble they take to their heels to escape sharing the burden of struggle." - Ash Shalab (Jaffa newspaper), January 30, 1948 "The refugees were confident that their absence would not last long, and that they would return within a week or two. Their leaders had promised them that the Arab armies would crush the 'Zionist gangs' very quickly and that there was no need for panic or fear of a long exile." - Monsignor George Hakim, Greek Catholic Bishop of Galilee, in the Beirut newspaper Sada al Janub, August 16, 1948 "Of the 62,000 Arabs who formerly lived in Haifa not more than 5,000 or 6,000 remained. Various factors influenced their decision to seek safety in flight. There is but little doubt that the most potent of the factors were the announcements made over the air by the -Higher Arab Executive, urging the Arabs to quit.. . . It was clearly intimated that those Arabs who remained in Haifa and accepted Jewish protection would be regarded as renegades." - The London weekly Economist, October 2, 1948 "It must not be forgotten that the Arab Higher Committee encouraged the refugees' flight from their homes in Jaffa, Haifa, and Jerusalem." - Near East Arabic Broadcasting Station, Cyprus, April 3, 1949 "This wholesale exodus was due partly to the belief of the Arabs, encouraged by the boasting of an unrealistic Arab press and the irresponsible utterances of some of the Arab leaders that it could be only a matter of some weeks before the Jews were defeated by the armies of the Arab States and the Palestinian Arabs enabled to re-enter and retake possession of their country." - Edward Atiyah (then Secretary of the Arab League Office in London) in The Arabs (London, 1955), p. 183 "The mass evacuation, prompted partly by fear, partly by order of Arab leaders, left the Arab quarter of Haifa a ghost city...By withdrawing Arab workers their leaders hoped to paralyze Haifa.". - Time, May 3, 1948, p. 25 The Arab exodus, initially at least, was encouraged by many Arab leaders, such as Haj Amin el Husseini, the exiled pro-Nazi Mufti of Jerusalem, and by the Arab Higher Committee for Palestine. They viewed the first wave of Arab setbacks as merely transitory. Let the Palestine Arabs flee into neighboring countries. It would serve to arouse the other Arab peoples to greater effort, and when the Arab invasion struck, the Palestinians could return to their homes and be compensated with the property of Jews driven into the sea. - Kenneth Bilby, in New Star in the Near East (New York, 1950), pp. 30-31 The Arab States encouraged the Palestine Arabs to leave their homes temporarily in order to be out of the way of the Arab invasion armies. - Falastin (Jordanian newspaper), February 19, 1949 We will smash the country with our guns and obliterate every place the Jews seek shelter in. The Arabs should conduct their wives and children to safe areas until the fighting has died down. - Iraqi Prime Minister Nuri Said, quoted in Sir Am Nakbah ("The Secret Behind the Disaster") by Nimr el Hawari, Nazareth, 1952 The Secretary General of the Arab League, Azzam Pasha, assured the Arab peoples that the occupation of Palestine and of Tel Aviv would be as simple as a military promenade. . . . He pointed out that they were already on the frontiers and that all the millions the Jews had spent on land and economic development would be easy booty, for it would be a simple matter to throw Jews into the Mediterranean. . . Brotherly advice was given to the Arabs of Palestine to leave their land, homes, and property and to stay temporarily in neighboring fraternal states, lest the guns of the invading Arab armies mow them down. - Habib "The Arab governments told us: Get out so that we can get in. So we got out, but they did not get in." - from the Jordan daily Ad Difaa, September 6, 1954 "Every effort is being made by the Jews to persuade the Arab populace to stay and carry on with their normal lives, to get their shops and businesses open and to be assured that their lives and interests will be safe. [However] ...A large road convoy, escorted by [British] military . . . left Haifa for Beirut yesterday. . . . Evacuation by sea goes on steadily. ...[Two days later, the Jews were] still making every effort to persuade the Arab populace to remain and to settle back into their normal lives in the towns... [as for the Arabs,] another convoy left Tireh for Transjordan, and the evacuation by sea continues. The quays and harbor are still crowded with refugees and their household effects, all omitting no opportunity to get a place an one of the boats leaving Haifa."" - Haifa District HQ of the British Police, April 26, 1948, quoted in Battleground by Samuel Katz "...our city flourished and developed for the good of both Jewish and Arab residents ... Do not destroy your homes with your own hands; do not bring tragedy upon yourselves by unnecessary evacuation and self-imposed burdens. By moving out you will be overtaken by poverty and humiliation. But in this city, yours and ours, Haifa, the gates are open for work, for life, and for peace, for you and your families." The Haifa Workers' Council bulletin, 28 April 1948 "...the Jewish hagana asked (using loudspeakers) Arabs to remain at their homes but the most of the Arab population followed their leaders who asked them to leave the country." - The TIMES of London, reporting events of 22.4.48 "Since 1948 it is we who demanded the return of refugees... while it is we who made them to leave... We brought disaster upon... Arab refugees, by inviting them and bringing pressure to bear upon them to leave... We have rendered them dispossessed... We have accustomed them to begging... We have participated in lowering their moral and social level... Then we exploited them in executing crimes of murder, arson, and throwing bombs upon... men, women and children - all this in service of political purposes..." - Khaled al Azm, Syria's Prime Minister after the 1948 war [note: same person as above] "As early as the first months of 1948 the Arab League issued orders exhorting the people to seek a temporary refuge in neighboring countries, later to return to their abodes in the wake of the victorious Arab armies and obtain their share of abandoned Jewish property." - bulletin of The Research Group for European Migration Problems, 1957 One morning in April 1948, Dr. Jamal woke us to say that the Arab Higher Committee (AHC), led by the Husseinis, had warned Arab residents of Talbieh to leave immediately. The understanding was that the residents would be able to return as conquerors as soon as the Arab forces had thrown the Jews out. Dr. Jamal made the point repeatedly that he was leaving because of the AHC's threats, not because of the Jews, and that he and his frail wife had no alternative but to go.- Commentary Magazine -- January 2000, http://www.commentarymagazine.com/0001/letters.html https://www.science.co.il/Arab-Israeli-conflict/Refugees.php Historically, it has been the UN that has blocked repatriation of the original Palestinians to their homes. The refugee status was maintained as a means of gaining propaganda points Israel. Had Israel successfully repatriated those Arabs back into Israel, they would not have been effective pawns for the Arab governments who wanted them to remain refugees in their smear campaign against Israel. Israel is the only nation to recognize and improve the basic human rights of the Palestinians. The Palestinians who are citizens in Israel are not languishing; they are prospering. They are allowed to own businesses, allowed full access to Israel's judiciary and have been successful in the judiciary having won 45% of the cases brought against them by fellow Jewish citizens. All of the Muslim holy sites are protected by Israel. Israel prosecutes and imprisons Jews who commit atrocities against Palestinians. Palestinian refugees, who are not citizens, still enjoy a number of freedoms they would not have in any Muslim country. They even enjoy free universal healthcare courtesy of the Israeli tax payer. Where the problems for the Palestinians begin is their ongoing plan to destroy Israel and foster terrorism against the Israelis. That is why most of their problems are self-inflicted. Critics of Israel fail to take into account that the Palestinians are not trying to take their homes back; they are part of a bigger Arab war of attrition meant to facilitate the destruction of Israel. But the problem is with the kind of narrative you are promoting ignores a lot of context. It would be like trying to explain the US presence in Afghanistan without mentioning 9/11. That's the problem with Israel's critics. They want to condemn Israel's actions while omitting the Islamic terrorism that precipitated Israel's actions. Innocent people always die in war. Israel does what it can to minimize civilian casualties, but when you are fighting with Muslim terrorists, you are not fighting an honorable enemy. What your above scenario fails to account for is that the terrorists intentionally put civilians in harm's way. They fire their rockets from civilian location, next to and inside civilian neighborhoods. They don't engage Israel in the field of battle, but they hide behind women and children in order to ramp up the civilian casualty rates. That's why someone might return home and find their parents dead. They are dead because their leaders intentionally got them killed in order to ramp up the propaganda points in the evening news. You appeal solely to emition; I appeal to what is actually happening on the ground and the reality that the terrorists are willing sacrifice innocent civilians in their goal to destroy Israel. The media and the terrorist sympathizers like you ignore the actual context of terrorism. So now we have you defending terrorism against the Jews. Again, this is an emotional appeal rooted in a false narrative that has no basis in the reality of what is going on, on the ground. And it ignores the fact that Israel has in good faith, over the last seven decades, made incredible concessions for peace, only to repaid in bloodshed. It ignores the fact that it is the terrorists who are the aggressors, and that Israel enacts the same defensive countermeasures that any nation would undertake were it facing an enemy that seeks its destruction. Your post fails to take into account the Arab goal of Israel's destruction, and the fact that Palestinians are raised to hate Jews, raised to be terrorists. They are turning to terrorism out of revenge. They are raised and bred to be terrorists, raised to kill Jews simply because Jews exist. The Palestinian charter has only always been about the destruction of Israel. No, they are continuing what has always been from the days of Yasir Arafat. There has been an ongoing goal to destroy Israel and the Palestinians are just the 5th column of a greater Arab war against Israel's existence. This conflict is more about the 21 Arab nations and their goal to destroy Israel, than anything else. The Arabs are the ones who created the refugee crisis as I have shown above. Israel did not make anyone into refugees. It is not up to Israel to end a refugee crisis they did not create. I thank God that are Christians who think clearer, who are more informed than "Christians" like you, who support Israel and recognize that Israel is a direct fulfillment of biblical prophecy. We stand against you and your wicked support for terrorism. That is anathema.
  12. (Worthy News) - Georgia’s battle of the “Staceys” barely qualified as a minor skirmish, as Stacey Abrams cruised to an historic landslide victory over Stacey Evans in the Democratic primary, becoming the first black woman nominated by her party for governor. Abrams, a former state house minority leader, crushed Evans, a sitting state lawmaker, winning nearly 76 percent of the vote. She rolled out to a commanding early lead and never looked back. While Abrams will have a more difficult time against the eventual Republican nominee — that race is headed toward a runoff, with front-runner Lt. Gov. Casey Cagle failing to break 50 percent in a multi-candidate field — it shows that Democrats are trying new paths to win. Not long ago, a white, relatively centrist woman like Stacey Evans might have been seen as the past way forward for Democrats in a state like Georgia. As recently as 2014, for example, the party nominated Michelle Nunn for Senate against Republican Sen. Saxby Chambliss (she lost). Her father, longtime Sen. Sam Nunn, was fairly conservative by national party standards.

  15. (Worthy News) - Just over two months ago, as winter landed its final blows of snow in New York City, Michael A. Walrond Jr. of Harlem's 10,000-member First Corinthian Baptist Church landed an ideological blow of his own in traditional Christendom. Walrond, who was named "One of the Lord's Foot Soldiers" by Newsweek magazine, told his congregants that the belief that anyone who doesn't believe in Jesus is going to hell is "insanity." "There was a time when you would see people in the pulpit say, 'well, if you don't believe in Jesus you going to Hell. That's insanity in many ways because that is not what Jesus even believes," he said in a viral clip posted to Facebook.

  17. This is why I am here, how about you?

    English translations of the Bible are far from perfect. It comes down to what the subject being discussed is as to how the individual word is to be properly translated. As for the word "olam" in the verse you quoted, I will try to explain the difference in how it is used there. There are two basic categories of existence: physical and spiritual. Anything that is physical requires a beginning and anything that is spiritual can have no beginning or end. Anything that is spiritual can't have its origin in the physical world because the physical world can only produce and contain physical things. In contrast, things in the spiritual realm must be eternal, without a beginning or an end, because spirituality is an essential part of God's being. God IS spirit. God is spirit, and those who worship him must worship in Spirit and in truth. John 4:24 Therefore, we know that the term "Olam/forever" used in the verse you quoted means to be without beginning or end, ever enduring, and never ceasing. Here is the verse you quoted again: "The grass withers, the flower fades, But the word of our God stands forever." (Isaiah 40:8) This verse says that the "word of our God" stands forever. We know from the Bible that the Word of our God is referring to Jesus/Holy Spirit, so in your example it means that the Word of God (Holy Spirit) has no beginning or end. Once again, only God (Spirit) can have no beginning and no end. When God created man, He created us in His image, with His spirit. We have something inside of our temporary physical body that is a part of God which has no beginning and no end. Only those who accept Christ can have life eternal in the presence of the Lord, the kind that never had a beginning and never has an end. So as you can see, when the word forever or eternal applies to God, it means to be without beginning or end and when we talk about eternal life, it is the life of God and with God. God kept His promise to the Israelites and they can still to this day dwell in the New Jerusalem if they choose to repent and accept Christ as their Lord and Savoir.

  20. (Worthy News) - The United States and South Korea are laboring to keep the highly anticipated U.S. summit with North Korea on track, even after President Donald Trump abruptly said “there’s a very substantial chance” it won’t happen as scheduled. South Korean President Moon Jae-in reminded Trump Tuesday of the sky-high stakes, saying, “The fate and the future of the Korean Peninsula hinge” on the meeting. The June 12 summit, planned for Singapore, offers a historic chance for peace on the peninsula - but also the risk of an epic diplomatic failure that would allow the North to revive and advance its nuclear weapons program.

    No, what you are doing is mixing contexts. You are taking the way a word is used in one part of Scripture and misapplying it other places. Olam has nuances that your sloppy approach to the Bible doesn't take into account.
