200,000 Israelis in Bomb Shelters as more than 100 Rockets Strike Southern Israel

A major outbreak of violence from Gaza over the weekend forced more than 200,000 Israelis into bomb shelters. More than 100 rockets and missiles were fired into Israel from Gaza. Israel’s “Iron Dome” missile defense system intercepted many of them, and no fatalities were reported, but the damage from the strikes was intensive. This new round of terror followed Israel’s success last week in stopping a major terror attack plot.

 

Israeli Defense Forces launched a strike that killed two terrorists involved in planning the attack, including the commander of the Popular Resistance Committee, a terrorist group operating in Gaza. An attack like the one last year across the lightly-defended Sinai border that killed eight Israelis was in the final stages when the IDF took action. Remember that Gaza is the land Israel gave up seven years ago in exchange for “peace.” It didn’t work then, and it won’t work now! The enemies of Israel have no interest in peace; they want the Jewish state destroyed and the Jewish people killed.

 

Israel today stands on the brink of all-out war—a war that will kill or injure thousands of precious Jewish men, women, and children. We must do all that we can to defend the Jewish state and God’s Chosen People. In addition, the Jerusalem Prayer Team is working to meet the needs of the poor and elderly in Israel. Your gift helps us provide warm clothes, food and medicine for those in urgent need.

Jerusalem – the capital of the State of Israel and ancient capital of the Kingdom of Israel. Founded by King David, Jerusalem is sacred to the three principal monotheistic faiths: Judaism, Christianity and Islam.

Jerusalem is old. In 1996 Jerusalem celebrated its 3,000th birthday. Jerusalem is young. 30% of Jerusalem’s population is under the age of 12.

Jerusalem is a city full of both antique sites and modern attractions. The walls of the Old City surround an inner world of faith, ancient culture and mystery. Yet within a relatively short distance one encounters the world of high technology, cutting-edge scientific research and 21st century design.

Jerusalem is the seat of Israel’s government, the Knesset, her Supreme Court and the location of her largest educational institution, the Hebrew University.

Jerusalem is noted for is unique beauty complimented by its agglomeration of sights, smells and sounds. These can be experienced in a stroll through either the Old City shuk or West Jerusalem’s Machane Yehuda market. But it is also is a city filled with gardens, parks, sculpture, outdoor cafes, museums and music.

Tradition says “Ten parts of beauty were bestowed upon the earth; of these, nine were given to Jerusalem”.

About Me

John 15 (NIV) 5 “I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing. 6 If you do not remain in me, you are like a branch that is thrown away and withers; such branches are picked up, thrown into the fire and burned. 7 If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you.
