Even as ISIS forces slaughter Christians and Muslims throughout Iraq, Syria and North Africa — and plot new attacks against the U.S., Israel and Jordan — there is a dramatic new development in terms of the organization’s leadership. Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the head of ISIS, has been seriously wounded in an airstrike in Iraq. Now […]
America is on the wrong track. Washington cannot fix all that ails us. We need to pray. Will you commit to an urgent time of prayer May 15-23?
America is on the wrong track. Almost 7 in 10 people believe this. Only 26% of Americans think we’re going in the right direction. In fact, only 37% believe America’s best days are still ahead of us. And the situation is growing critical. We’re not just in a season of decline. We are facing implosion. Washington cannot fix all that ails us. […]

How are ISIS jihadists luring Americans to join its ranks? 25 Americans arrested since January. Here’s the latest.
How long will it be before ISIS jihadists launch a major terrorist operation inside the United States, or capture and publicly behead an American on U.S. soil? Readers of my latest political thriller, The Third Target, will recall the terrorist attack in Washington, D.C. that unfolds in the novel. But will fiction turn into reality […]
Israel celebrates 67 years after its dramatic, prophetic rebirth. A few thoughts to mark the occasion. [Come with me on a tour of Israel & Jordan this Fall.]
(Central Israel) — Today, Israelis are celebrating our Independence Day. On the Western calendar, we remember May 14th, 1948. But on the Jewish calendar, today marks 67 years since the dramatic, prophetic rebirth of the Jewish State. A few thoughts to mark the occasion: It’s a very special time for our family as it’s our first time celebrating as […]

Did you miss “The Third Target Simulcast”? I’m so grateful for all of you that watched the simulcast on April 19th and found it informative and encouraging.

On Holocaust Remembrance Day, here are four true heroes to remember. Who will be the heroes of our time, standing against evil & genocide?
Those who forget the past are doomed to repeat it, said Santayana. Let us never forget. Yom HaShoah — Holocaust Remembrance Day — begins tonight. How will you remember the Holocaust and teach your children? This year, let us all make time to remember the six million Jews that were murdered by the Nazis, including 1.5 million children. Let […]
Putin moves to boost ties with Tehran, sell missiles to Iran. Does this — and the deeply flawed proposed Iran nuclear deal — mean war is actually “more likely”? Here’s the latest.
(Central Israel) — With U.S.-Israeli relations at arguably their lowest point in history, Russia’s ties with Iran are suddenly growing much closer. Vladimir Putin on Monday “cleared the way for the delivery of sophisticated air defense systems to Iran,” and Iranian officials say the S-300 missile system could be “delivered his year.” This raises the disturbing question of […]

>> Join me for a discussion of Christian persecution in the Mideast during a special simulcast on April 19th.

It was our first time celebrating these two wonderful and important Jewish holidays as immigrants here in the Land and it was a great blessing. Now I’m back hard […]
