This issue looks at new anti-Semitism from the Church of Scotland, the latest from Syria and Israel, the widening Hamas-Egyptian rift, Iran’s dubious disarmament role, more details regarding the latest Obama scandals, a disgusting film, and some stories that will leave you scratching your head.
OUR ISRAELI CONNECTION
Church of Scotland Denies Israeli Rights
Jerusalem Prayer Team reports: The Church of Scotland recently issued a paper called “The Inheritance of Abraham.” This shocking document rejects “claims that Scripture offers any peoples a privileged claim for possession of a particular territory.” It goes on to say that “reconciliation can only be possible if the Israeli military occupation of the West Bank and East Jerusalem and the blockade of Gaza are ended.” After an outpouring of protest, the church has agreed to “reword” the document.
News from The Israel Project
Officials from the Western-backed Palestinian Fatah faction yesterday slammed what they called “activities of normalization” with Israel. Top Fatah figures blasted the organizers of a sports match designed to promote coexistence between Palestinians and Israelis. Young participants who took part in the match were threatened. The organization hosting the tournament, Mifalot, seeks to provide assistance to at-risk and special-needs children, as part of a program of “promoting peace and coexistence by creating bonds of friendship between Israelis, Palestinians, and Jordanians.”
Palestinian terrorist groups activated by the Bashar al-Assad regime are gearing up to
attack Israel, according to reports and a statement made by the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine-General Command (PFLP-GC).The terrorist group issued a call for “all Syrian citizens to volunteer in the formation of the resistance.” Western media outlets reported that the group would seek to attack Israel on the Golan Heights, which the Jewish state seized from Damascus during a defensive 1967 war.
Forces loyal to Syria’s Bashar al-Assad regime have regained the momentum in the bloody war. The Washington Post conveys analysis to the effect that “there is little doubt that the pendulum is now swinging in favor of Assad,” providing the regime with a range of potential advantages from a relatively stronger negotiating position all the way to limited military victory. Damascus has been able to mobilize as many as 60,000 irregulars partly trained by Iran and Tehran’s Lebanese terror proxy Hezbollah, and has also directly called upon Iranian and Hezbollah soldiers.
A series of anti-Hamas leaks from Egyptian security forces — in which the Iran-backed terror group is blamed for fomenting violence inside Egypt — may be gaining traction in the Egyptian public sphere.The charges are part of a media war between Hamas and the Egyptian army. The army blames Hamas for a string of terror attacks in the country’s Sinai Peninsula and beyond.
Iran will chair this year’s annual session of the United Nations Conference on Disarmament, taking the helm of the U.N. body despite broad international concerns that Tehran is pursuing nuclear weapons and shredding the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty. Iranian state media bragged about the announcement, framing it as a diplomatic win for Iran and a loss for the United States.
Human rights groups are expressing something approaching horror after a video was posted online showing a Syrian rebel commander cutting out the heart of a Syrian soldier and eating it. The video allegedly shows Abu Sakkar, the founder of opposition group Farouq Brigade, excising the heart and liver of a dead soldier, declaring “Allahu akbar [God is great],” and then biting into the heart.
IT’S NEWS TO ME
Benghazi Whistleblower Hicks A Democrat, Voted For Hillary And Obama Twice

Hussain Al-Khawahir: Saudi Arrested w Pressure Cooker @ Detroit Airport Lied to Authorities, Tore Page From Passport (From Qaeda Training Camp Stay?)
Debbie Schlussel reports: On Friday, I told you about a man caught with a pressure cooker in his luggage at a Hawaii airport. He also had bomb-making literature and batteries wrapped in tape. But the Famous But Incompetent (FBI) let him go, and detained the pressure cooker for further “analysis” (and politically correct stew-making, I’m sure). Now, a Saudi Arabian has been detained for having a pressure cooker in his luggage.
The movie ” Corpus Christi ” is due to be released this June to August. A disgusting film set to appear in America later this year depicts Jesus and his disciples as homosexuals! As a play, this has already been in theaters for a while. It’s called ” Corpus Christi ” which means “The Body of Christ”. It’s a revolting mockery of our Lord. Make sure it is never shown in your town.
Here are some bizarre stories you may find hard to believe:
