In 1917 there was the Balfour Declaration which recognised a homeland for the Jews. After 50 years,in 1967, the famous six-day war took place in which three arab nations bent on obliterating the small nation were miraculously overcome and Israel captured the Sinai Peninsula, Gaza Strip, West Bank, Old City of Jerusalem, and the Golan Heights.

Is it not written that “In the year of this jubilee ye shall return every man unto his possession” (Lev.25:13)? “Andrew, but look at what the Israelis are doing to Palestians?” Well, to discern truth you have to watch mainstream media news with extreme caution. Much of what you will get from mainstream media are sound bites of ‘trees’ of news, not THE ‘forest’ – the real big picture of a situation!
Does this surprise us? Not at all. The media is playing its role in fulfiling another verse: “And in that day will I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people: all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces, though all the people of the earth be gathered together against it” (Zech.12:3).
