The rebirth of the state of Israel has caused great
controversy among the nations as is evidenced by the many resolutions passed by
the United Nations condemning Israel. And we all know there is much controversy
among the media. Who is to blame? One doesn’t know what to believe or what to
do to bring “world peace.” Yet, there are steps that can and must be taken specifically by the Christian community to support and bless Israel.

1. Judea and Samaria (Jewish roots) or West
Bank (Arab roots)?
“Judea” (יהודה) is the origin of the term “Jew”
(יהודי). Its Hebrew spelling combines one of God’s names: Jehova (יהוה)
and one of God’s acronyms: ד'. Judea and Samaria are the cradle of
Jewish history, religion, culture, holidays, ethos, language and
yearnings. The official name of the area was "Judea and Samaria" from
Biblical times until April 1950, when Jordan occupied/annexed the area,
renaming it "West Bank," as distinguished from the east bank of the
Jordan River. Judea and Samaria was the official name used by the
1922-1948 British Mandate of Palestine, as well as by the U.N.

Bassam Eid, a prominent Palestinian human rights
activist, has issued an urgent plea for a serious overhaul of UNRWA, the UN
agency tasked with caring for the Palestinian refugees of the 1948 war in which
Arab armies failed to prevent the creation of the State of Israel.
Eid, the Director of the Palestinian Human Rights
Monitoring Group, is currently visiting London, where he addressed a meeting at
the British parliament organized by the Henry Jackson Society, an international
relations think-tank, entitled “Perpetuating Statelessness? UNRWA, Its
Activities and Funding.” In that presentation, Eid, who was raised in the UNRWA
refugee camp in Shu’afat, east of Jerusalem, harshly criticized the agency for
perpetuating the plight of the refugees as well as for its political
relationship with Hamas.
“Sixty-six years after it was created, UNRWA is still
promising Palestinians that they will return to their homeland,” Eid told The
Algemeiner by telephone. “In my opinion, causing five million Palestinian
refugees to suffer more and more under the umbrella of the ‘right of return’ is
a war crime. They are being used as pawns in a war strategy.” Continue.........
Mainstream Western media coverage of Israel is laced with
expressions intentionally crafted to delegitimize the Jewish State. The good
news is that these terms weren’t written in stone 3,300 years ago, but are
post-Israel independence creations. By using this language, we forfeit our
history. Here are 13 phrases we must stop repeating.
#1 – “West Bank:” Claims that “Judea and Samaria” is
simply the “biblical name for the West Bank” stands history on its head. The
Hebrew-origin terms “Judea” and “Samaria” were used through 1950, when invading
[Trans]Jordan renamed them the “West Bank” in order to disassociate these areas
of the Jewish homeland from Jews. The UN’s own 1947 partition resolution
referred not to “West Bank,” but to “the hill country of Samaria and Judea.”
This term is not shorthand for “Judea and Samaria.” Under this formulation,
Jordan is the “East Bank” of the original Palestine Mandate, which was
designated as the homeland for the Jewish People.
– “East” Jerusalem or “traditionally Arab East” Jerusalem: From the
city’s second millennium BCE origins until 1947 CE, there was no such
place as “East” Jerusalem. The 19 years between 1948 and 1967, when
invading Jordan captured part of the city in 1948 and was ousted by
Israel in 1967, was the only time in history (except for a short time
during the Arab expansion between 638 and 1099), when Arabs ruled any
part of Jerusalem. Palestinian Arabs have not ruled an inch of it for
one day in history. In the past three millennia, Jerusalem has
been the capital of three native states – Judah, Judaea, and modern
Israel – and has had a renewed Jewish majority since 19thcentury
Turkish rule. Eastern Jerusalem is a neighborhood of the city that
Israel reunified in 1967. Continue.....

Boykin, addressing a packed house at a synagogue today in Stoughton,

in the U.S. since at least 1962.
“The new Egyptian president, Mohamed Morsi, said he joined the Muslim

People who say that the Muslim Brotherhood is not in America are not
