....and as palestinians we have been be suffering since 59 years ago
32. To Ali
Orhan ,   Haifa   (04.24.07)
It think to be quite true to ones self, it should be 'happy 59th birth day'. Too bad, it was also diagnosed with a horrifying tumor. It seems that the July war helped show this tumor. Its not a nation that had an Army, its an Army that needed a nation. And the army for the first time was defeated. Don’t worry Ali, we have the promise of God and it’s a Promise of Victory. They have an international community on their side. A common interest of many super powers, on history scale, 59 years is nothing. The Crusaders captured Palestine for 100 years and then Salah El Dein got it back. Yes, our leaders are bad, they let us all down, but our leaders are dead now. Just puppets in their golden palaces. And the signs of victory has emerged, it will start in Lebanon and end enshalla in el Masjed el 2qsa. You won’t even reach the 70th birthday. The count down has started.

40. # 8 Ali, Rama, Israel
Josef Matamoros ,   Finland   (04.24.07)
You, Arabs, have caused your own misery. You, Arabs, have usurped Israeli soil. The land of Israel belongs to Israelis, not to Arabs. Shomron, Yehuda and Azza are parts of Israel, though disputed due to Arab occupation. You, Arabs, need to correct your hearts. Your attitude towards Israel is twisted and therefore you suffer.
41. Happy B-Day Israel

42. The jews are the oldest nation in this land
Lednah ,   Europe   (04.24.07)
The arabs are the ocupators.
43. We were expelled from our lands and homes 59 years ago
Hani   (04.24.07)
But the story is far, far from over.
44. To Palestine we shall RETURN
Hani   (04.24.07)
All 5 million of us will return to our roots, our homeland that is PALESTINE. Remember Israelis, you are sitting on our ruins!! But in this day and age of the Internet, every lost of inch of land, every particle of our destructed homes, is well documented! History doesn't lie. To Palestine we shall return! Where else? Nothing substitutes home.
45. May 27, 11:45AM '48 Deir El-Qassi Galilee
Hani ,   Palestine   (04.24.07)
Terrified by the Israeli air force bombardment of the village and adjoining areas, my grand mother, having went through weeks without water and food, finally hauls my father and uncle on her back and runs for her life, toward Rumeish In Lebanon. Of course, little did she know that the emerging terrorist state of Israel would condemn her to decay in Southern Lebanon for decades,with the possibility of dying there. Her only crime: She's a Palestinian Arab. To Palestine we shall return, to the beautiful Deir el-Qassi, and our orange groves. This time we will go hightech with our farming of course! Jewish majority: Go to hell.
46. An Incredible Mathematical Bible Prophecy Fulfilled ...
Craig Crawford ,   Laguna Niguel USA   (04.24.07)
You are about to read one of the most remarkable prophecies in the Bible ...  "Then God said to Ezekiel, 'Now lie on your left side for 390 days to show Israel will be punished for 390 years by captivity and doom. Each day you lie there represents a year of punishment ahead for Israel. Afterwards, turn over and lay on your right side for 40 days, to signify the years of Judah's punishment. Each day will represent one year . . .'"    (Ezekiel 4:4-6) This Is A MATHEMATICAL Bible Prophecy . . . God tells Ezekiel each day he (Ezekiel) lies on his side will represent one year of punishment for the nation Israel (Israel + Judah) because of their sins against God . . . 390 days Against the 10 northern tribes 'Israel' + 40 days Against the 2 southern tribes 'Judah' = 430 years Judgment against nation Israel The Fulfillment Begins . . . In 606 B.C. Israel (Judah) was taken into captivity by Babylon for exactly 70 years ... 430 years of judgment determined against nation Israel - 70 years fulfilled during the Babylonian captivity = 360 years remaining in judgment against the nation of Israel The Mystery of 360 Years . . . There should have been a total of 360 years left in judgment after their release from Babylon exactly 70 years after the captivity began (just as Jeremiah had prophesied) ... but where was the remaining 360 year judgment in Israel's history??!! The 7X Factor of God's Judgment . . . A close look in the book of Leviticus reveals a startling prophetic warning ...  "And after all this, if you do not obey Me, then I (God) will punish you seven times more for your sins." (Leviticus 26:18)  "Then, if you walk contrary to Me, and are not willing to obey Me, I (God) will bring on you seven times more plagues, according to your sins." (Leviticus 26:21)  "And after all this, if you do not obey Me, but walk contrary to Me, then I (God) also will walk contrary to you in fury; and I, even I will chastise you seven times for your sins.: (Leviticus 26:27-28)  "I (God) will scatter you among the nations and draw a sword after you; your Land shall be desolate and your cities waste." (Leviticus 26:33) God warned Israel if they continued in their disobedience He would multiply their judgment by seven times (7X)! Prophecy Fulfilled . . . Let's apply the 7X factor to the remaining 360 years of judgment against nation Israel . . . 360 Remaining years of judgment x 7 The '7X' factor  = 2,520  Years of judgment remained against nation Israel God gave the Jews the most sophisticated calendar on Earth. It is both a Lunar and Solar calendar. The Jewish calendar uses a 360 day lunar (and prophetic) year and then adds a 'Leap Month' to accurately coincide with the Solar cycle used on our 'Julian' calendar ... So, the easiest way to unravel this prophecy is to convert it into days ... 2,520 years x 360 days  = 907,200  days of judgment remained against nation Israel AFTER the Babylonian captivity Now, convert the 907,200 days into our 365.25 day solar (Julian) years (the .25 adjusts for leap years) . . . 907,200 days ÷ 365.25 days = 2,483.78 years of God's judgment remained Now, let's look at this remarkable prophecy again . . . 606 B.C Israel taken into Babylonian captivity - 70 Years for 70 years = 536 B.C. End of first 70 years of judgment + 2483 Years Now add the 2,483 years remaining in this judgment + 1 Year Add 1 year because there is no "0" B.C. or A.D. = 1948 AD! End of judgment against nation Israel Israel Back in Her Land as a Nation . . . in 1948! Grace and Shalom,

50. And Now: The Prophetic FUTURE of Israel . . .
Craig Crawford ,   Laguna Niguel USA   (04.24.07)
According to the Bible, AFTER Israel has been re-gathered the SECOND time (Isaiah 11:11,12 ... the first time was after Babylon) ... Israel will see the following: 1. She will be re-gathered in unbelief. 2. There will be 'wars and rumors of war' 3. Iran (being directed and armed by Russia), Russia, Turkey, Sudan, Libya, and other allies will attack and invade Israel ... God will intervene ... the US will not be there for Israel. 4. A very popular world leader will rise over 10 nations of the former Roman Empire. 5. A new Jewish Temple WILL be rebuilt. 6. This coming world leader will be looked upon as a 'man of peace' and messiah (he will be a false messiah ... he is mentioned over 30 times in the Bible) 7. He will enforce a 'Peace Plan' upon Israel ... this peace plan will begin the last 7 years of judgment and testing for Israel ... and the world ... it is also called the 'Apocalypse,' the 'time of Jacob's (Israel's) trouble, and the Day of the Lord (the Lord's Wrath). 8. All nations will turn against Israel and God will draw their armies into Israel .... Armageddon ... Jesus-Yeshua, the promise Messiah, will return to save His brethren ... 2/3 we are told will be 'cut off' because of their 'unbelief' ... and 1/3 will be safely brought through 'the fire'. 9. Jesus-Yeshua will then judge all nations on how they treated His 'brethren' ... the Jews. 10. Israel will rule over ALL nations on Earth under Her King and Messiah ... Yeshua Ha'Mashiach (Jesus Christ in English). Grace and Shalom,
51. 46 and 50- AMEN!
Adrian ,   Atlanta, Ga   (04.25.07)
And.. the reason the US is not protective of Isreal MAY be because the rapture has occurred, and the country is in total chaos, as so many citizens have disappeared. This would include the Christians who understood God's promise to Abraham.. "I will bless those who bless thee, and I will curse those who curse thee.. Study Scripture!! May God open your eyes to the love of Jesus!

55. And Now: The Prophetic Future of GAZA!!!
Craig Crawford ,   Laguna Niguel USA   (04.26.07)
In Zephaniah 2:1-7 (see below), God links the forsaking of Gaza (in Judah, Israel) to the coming 'Time of Jacob's (Israel's) Trouble,' and the coming 'Apocalypse,' which is also called 'The Day of Wrath,' the 'Day of the Lord's Wrath" (also described in Zephaniah 1:14-18). In the following passages, God wants the children of Israel and all the people on Earth to know these three (3) things: 1. First, God has issued a terrible warning and a 'plea' to both Israel and to ALL people on Earth ... (Note: The recent 'uprooting' of the Jews from Gaza may be a much more 'significant' event than many realize ...)  "Gather yourselves together, Yes, gather together O undesirable nation (the nation who would willingly try to give God's land to her enemies)  BEFORE the decree is issued,  BEFORE the day passes like chaff,  BEFORE the Lord's fierce anger comes upon you,  BEFORE the day of the Lord's anger comes upon you!  SEEK the Lord, ALL you meek of the Earth who have upheld His justice (this will be a GLOBAL judgment)  SEEK righteousness,  SEEK humility.  IT MAY BE THAT YOU WILL BE HIDDEN IN THE DAY OF THE LORD'S ANGER."  (This is another term used in the Bible for the coming 'Apocalypse.') 2. He wants ALL in Israel and on Earth to know what will help trigger His fierce anger ... Gaza!!!   'Gaza will be forsaken' ... her inhabitants (the children of Israel) 'uprooted' and 'driven out.'  "For Gaza shall be forsaken, And Ashkelon desolate; They shall drive out Ashdod at noonday, And Ekron shall be uprooted. Woe to the inhabitants of the seacoast, The nation of the Cherethites! The word of the Lord is against you, O Canaan, land of the Philistines (Palestinians): "I (God) WILL destroy you; So there shall be NO inhabitant." 3. God wants all to know there is Hope. He promises hope for all those who will wait in faith and trust in His Messiah, Yeshua-Jesus ... for one-day in the future, AFTER the 'day of God's anger' (the terrible day of wrath ... the coming 'Apocalypse' ... see Zephaniah 1:14-18) a remnant of the tribe of Judah will once again peacefully inhabit and prosper in that precious land God promised and gave to them ... and then, and only then, will there be 'peace on Earth.' For at that time, our Messiah and God will restore all the Earth in peace and beauty ... as promised.  "The seacoast shall be pastures, With shelters for shepherds and folds for flocks. The coast shall be for the remnant of the house of Judah; They (the remnant of the house of Judah) shall feed there flocks there (coastlands of Gaza); In the houses of Ashkelon they shall lie down at evening. The the Lord their God will intervene for them, And return their captives." (Zephaniah 2:1-7) . Grace and Shalom,
