    Police in Jerusalem seized a hoard of stolen antiquities that date to a 1,900-year-old Jewish rebellion against the Romans. The cache had been dug up by tomb robbers from a tunnel complex.The hoard included hundreds of coins, incense burners and a number of ceramics with decorations on them, including a jug that has a carving of a reclining figure holding a jug of wine. Researchers believe that during the Bar Kokhba revolt (A.D. 132-135), Jewish rebels captured the items from Roman soldiers and stored them in a tunnel complex where modern-day robbers found them, the Israel Antiquities Authority said in...

    “The Firstborn Son Is Presented in the Temple” (Luke 2:22-40) Yesterday was Christmas, and now we’re into the days after Christmas. For us, these days mean eating leftovers, returning gifts that don’t fit, and taking down the decorations. But what about for Jesus? What did the days after his birth mean for him? Our text is one the few places we have an account of what happened during that time. It’s the story of what happened forty days after his birth, when “The Firstborn Son Is Presented in the Temple.” Actually, the first event after Christmas we have is found...

    Looking pensive, Winston Churchill is seen talking to a priest in a field surrounded by white crosses. The image, which was taken on March 26, 1921, shows the then Secretary of State for the Colonies at the British War Cemetery in Jerusalem. He is engaged in conversation with Rennie MacInnes, the Bishop of Jerusalem, during a memorial service for British troops killed during the First World War, which had ended just two years earlier. Now, the photo is one of hundreds taken in the Middle East during the 19th and early-20th century which have been colourised for the first time...

    Israel threatens Hamas with targeted killings World Israel News 21:00 3 hours ago NEWSRAEL: Hamas, like all other terror leaders are great giving speeches of "We love death!" and "We will fight until our last drop of blood!", but for some strange reason, they always send someone else to do their dirty work. The only real threat that bothers them is having to pay the price for their terror themselves. The warnings were reportedly sent to the Gaza-based terror group by Egyptian security officials who are now visiting the Palestinian Authority in Ramallah. Israel has threatened Hamas with targeted killings...

    Italy Betrayed its Jews in fear of the PLO It has long been a "secret" that was always known that European countries had "secret" agreements to help with diplomatic aid certain Palestinian terror groups and allow them to work on its soil, as long as those grous didn't committ terror attacks against them. Now it turns out that Italy (at least) took this one step further as a report emerges in the news site "Times of Israel" which proves that Italy disregarded intel that a terror attack was planned against the Great Synagogue in Rome in 1982 and allowed it...

The 14-year-old Arab girl arrested last week for stabbing a Jewish woman in the back in front of her children in an unprovoked attack was found to be in possession of Palestinian Authority-approved textbooks, which contained violent rhetoric about Jews and Israel, when she was taken into custody by the police. IMPACT-se, an Israeli watchdog group which raises the alarm about hateful content within PA-approved textbooks, said in a statement that books found in the bag of the 14-year-old described Palestinian violence...

    American Thinker ^ | Civis Americanus
    The political left uses the term "intersectionality" to depict all members of advanced and largely Westernized societies as oppressors and all non-white people and residents of third-world countries as oppressees. Slaves in the antebellum United States, black Americans under Jim Crow laws, and Palestinians are now one and the same. Zionism is racism, Israel equals Simon Legree, and Black Lives Matter rallies feature Palestinian flags along with anti-Israel and anti-Semitic hate speech. "Israel, we know you, you murder children, too." BLM supporter Marc Lamont Hill added that the group supports dismantling Israel. The Movement for Black Lives, meanwhile, depicted Israel...

    In these days when the world is trying to do all it can to detach the Jewish ownership of Israel, and of Jerusalem itself, it is import to watch and share this video of Dr, Mordechai Kedar, Middle East expert and VP of NEWSRAEL on Al-Jezzera in Arabic. Watch not only his response to a Muslim cleric who claimed Jerusalem is Muslim, but in the forum he did it - inside their very own "court"! Watch as Kedar takes command and gives them a "dressing down" it will take them long to forget! Watch the video - it is classic!

    The Israeli Mossad is on its way to wreaking havoc inside Iran, says British journalist Jake Wallis Simmons. Iran is about to be hit by a new deadly wave of Israeli Mossad operations, senior Jerusalem sources told me. This will happen as a result of a change in Israeli policy, from now on, "When Tehran's proxy militias cause problems in the region, the Jewish state will take revenge on Iranian soil." It will no longer attack the octopus' tentacles, "said one senior source. It has been decided in Israel to go for the octopus head."

    The British "Independent" has reported that Google has been profiting from the sale of T-shirts glorifying Palestinian militant group Hamas by advertising the garments, it can be revealed, days after the UK government banned its political wing as a terrorist organisation. The military arm of the Islamist group – which controls the Gaza strip and does not recognise Israel’s right to exist – has been proscribed in the UK since 2001, but the entirety of Hamas was designated a terrorist organisation last week.
