I like your articles very much and finally subscribed to your newsletter. One thing though I’d like to draw your attention to: the maps on your page are totally outdated!! Since July 2005 – almost a decade ago – the situation has changed dramatically and to the worse.

It would suit your site well to update this section so as to reflect the reality which is very very bleak!

Regards, Eleonora

Why is it so hard to find folks who are objective on this subject!?! Why not add to your graphic the reason Israel’s borders increased in ’49 (territory gained in defending it’s right to exist from an unprovoked invasion of their land) or at least show the border at the end of the Six Day war in 67 including all of Sinai peninsula and then shrinking back from that as Israel once again surrendered land they had gained on the battlefield.

There just doesn’t seem much hope for resolution if folks can’t even be honest with the facts….

@anon: ^ day war? you mean the day that Israel attacked Jordan, Egypt and Syria by destroying their air strips and grabbing more land? that 6 day war? the Day and israeli jet and a torpedo boat attacked the US liberty hoping to blame it on Egypt? That ^ day war? What i do not understand is how people with no knowledge of the history can make such comments.
And has your history teacher ever mentioned the Massacre at dier yassin? where the irgun(military arm of the Hagana) killed an entire village? men women and children! Did they have the “right to exist”? or only Israeli’s have the right to exist? Learn the history and then speak.

Anon, you are so correct. I don’t understand why people are not objective on this subject. In the Bible Belt here in the U.S. where I live it’s all about Israel being our friend and Ally. I think I have gotten through to some people, but very few. I have sort of changed tactics lately with the Southern Baptist Bible Belt Christians and have pointed out that there are many Palestinian Arab Christians that have suffered and died as a result of Palestine. Maybe these Bible Belt Christians will at least stand up for them, but who knows.

That should read that there many Palestinian Arab Christians that have suffered and died as a result of Israel.

Palestine is a generic name for a region governed by the Ottoman Empire. There never was an independent nation state with that name. The two state solution proposed by the U.N. was rejected by the surrounding states who answered this peaceful proposal with guns blazing. If you get your information from a public bus in Canada, you aren’t getting the true story.

The real barrier to peace is the continuous militarization of Gaza, featuring missile attacks against civilians. Israel demands demilitarization as a condition of peaceful coexistence. This is rejected outright by Hamas, but this is the smartest idea on the table.

If you want to turn back the clock, take a look at how the borders of European states have changed in the last 100 years. The formula for peace is 1) Stop shooting, 2) Draw the borders, and 3) Celebrate the first Palestinian state in history.

I am reminded of the passage in 1 Cor 13, that describes how we ‘see dimly now’, but later we will see clearly. The position and finance behind the Zionist Israel movement is no less similar to a small speed boat in the ocean attempting to direct a Carnival Cruise liner, that there is danger ahead, and to reverse course…..without direct access to the officers of the ship, the small boat is ‘cast aside’ in the giant wake of the ship, as it cruises on in a ‘pre-planned’ schedule of fun and entertainment. The ship and it’s passengers & crew, are too busy with ‘other things’ on their mind, to give any ‘credible’ attention to the ‘small voice in the distance’.

So it is with the truth of the history of Zionist Israel in the current land.
Only God knows how this fits into His overall plan for the final days, and my prayer is that we spend our time sharing God’s truth and Gospel with others daily, and be light where we can.

I relate to comments above about Bible Belt Christians. I even heard the most popular local preacher give closing comments at a fundraiser recently, and he used ‘Jewish victimization’ as a heartfelt example of how we have to give money, so similar victims won’t occur today.

May God give you daily guidance to ‘make disciples ‘as you go’, wherever you are, in whatever way that is natural for you.

I can’t believe you are posting such a racist map. How is the black “Israel” prior to the state of Israel being founded? How is the blue “Palestine” when no such country existed?
