Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) fighter Noad “Neo” Lahat, who scored a unanimous decision victory against Steven Siler on Saturday at UFC on Fox 12, is on his way home to Israel, to join the fighting in Gaza.

“This last two months has been an absolute hell, worrying about all my friends and family,” Lahat told an interviewer after the fight. “I just knew I had to go back and help my country… I wanted to show my flag and use my victory to give my family strength in this dark time.

“I want to stay here and have fun and enjoy the rest of the week after two really tough months. But man, I’m going to have to go, otherwise I’m not going to have a home. My mom and my dad have 15 seconds to run to get shelter when missiles are falling on them, and I’m here in sunny California. I love California, but I need to go and defend my home.”

Lahat is the UFC’s second Israeli-born fighter, told MMAfighting.com: “My family has about 15 seconds every time an alarm goes off to take a shelter from missiles. And for us, it’s not some faraway war on the other side of the world. It’s by my home. I need to go protect my family, protect my country, protect my future.”

"As soon as they call my unit, I’m in," Lahat says. "I’m going to join my brothers, the same people I served with for years. And there’s no other way for me. And for me to be here, not at home right now, it’s something that…it’s beyond miserable. For me to be here and not at home right now, not being at home with my people. To be fighting in sunny California, it’s a horrible feeling."

Lahat served for three-and-a-half years in the Israeli army as part of a paratrooper unit.

He says his teammates at the American Kickboxing Academy have been empathetic to his plight, and have helped him by “punching me as hard as they can.”

"The only time I could take my mind off of that was in the gym sparring," he says. "Other than that, I am watching news or on the phone with friends and family all the time. It’s been a hard camp."

"It’s more than moral. We can’t lose the war. If we lose there is no hope for me. California is not my home. I love California, and it’s nice, but it’s not my home. It’s a great place, but it’s not my place. For me, if I want to go back home, I need to protect it."

The Israeli Palestinian Conflict: 10 Myths Preventing Peace (Calev Myers)

The Israeli Palestinian conflict is an often misunderstood political battleground where facts are mixed with opinion, perference, and prejudice. There’s so much confusion around the conflict that we want to bring light to what is truth and what is myth. What issues are actually standing in the way of bringing peace between the Israelis and Palestinians? How does their fight over land complicate the conflict? And what role to political leaders like Yasser Arafat and Ehud Barak play along with organizations like UNRWA? These are questions we uncover in these 10 myths that are preventing peace in Palestine and Israel.

Mosab Hassan Yousef (Son of Hamas Founder) tells the truth about Hamas.  Open Your Eyes People!!!  

Hamas does not want to coexist with Israel.  It’s that simple.

This is from Mossab’s Wikipedia page.  He was also an undercover spy for Israel.  God bless this incredible man:

Mosab Hassan Yousef (Arabicمصعب حسن يوسف‎) (born 1978) is a Palestinian and son of a Hamas founder and leader SheikhHassan Yousef. From 1997 to 2007, he worked undercover for Israel’s internal security service Shin Bet, which considered him its most valuable source within the Hamas leadership.

According to Israeli sources, the information Yousef supplied prevented dozens of suicide attacks and assassinations of Israelis, exposed numerous Hamas cells, and assisted Israel in hunting down many militants, including his own father. In March 2010, he published his autobiography titled Son of Hamas.

Yousef has since converted to Christianity and moved to California. His request for political asylum in the United States was granted pending a routine background check on June 30, 2010

ISRAEL HAS THE RIGHT TO DEFEND HERSELF…..

Israel Has the right to defend herself.  Israel is a Sovereign nation and has been one since May of 1948.  This is like saying that if Mexico started sending 1,500 missles into the Untied States we should do nothing?  Really?  If this happened here at home we would want our Air Force to destroy our enemies and keep our people safe.  Our military would do anything to make that a reality.  We went to war with Iraq over a terrorist attack.  What about all the women and children that were killed there?  War is hell and people die.  Sometimes even the innocent.  Why should we expect Israel not to protect her people?

Hamas is the Palestinian branch of the Muslim Brotherhood.  They are terrorists.  That is just a fact.  Why doesn’t the Western media get it? Why don’t Western leaders get it? It is the war of public opinion that surrounds the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, the liberal press, and other media.  The Palestinian propagandists can count on the liberal media to run footage of dead and wounded Palestinians  They can also rely on world leaders to condemn the “cycle of violence”—as though there were a moral equivalence between the actions of the Palestinians and the actions of the Israelis.

But there is no moral equivalence. To paraphrase Winston Churchill, never in the history of human conflict has one side (Israel) done so much to protect the lives of civilians on the other side. Conversely, never has an opposing force shown so little regard for civilian lives—either that of their enemy or of their own people.  To minimize civilian casualties among Gazan citizens, the Israeli Defense Force first gives warning of an impending attack via telephone, thousands of pamphlets, and warning shots. And Hamas? Hamas positions its rocket launchers near schools, hospitals, and mosques and in private homes next to apartment buildings.

When the Israelis warn Gazans to leave, Hamas orders them to stay and act as human shields. “Israel uses weapons to protect its civilians. Hamas uses civilians to protect its weapons.” If Hamas truly cared for its people you would never see weapons in elementary schools or hospitals.  Hamas also uses civilian casualties for propaganda purposes. They don’t mind if their own people are killed as long as the compliant Western media is willing to publish the photos of mangled bodies and wailing mothers.

 “There is no other army in the world like the IDF that takes so many precautions in warning citizens of soldiers’ advance, whether it’s by mail, flyer, phone calls, text messages, and loudspeakers,”  “You won’t find other armies setting up field hospitals and bringing in supplies, as Israel has. 

Hamas has no morals.  Consider how the two sides reacted to the murder of three Israeli teens by Palestinian terrorists, and, shortly after, to the murder of a teenage Palestinian boy by a Jewish extremist. The death of the Jewish boys was a cause of celebration in the Palestinian communities, the death of the Palestinian boy was an occasion of sorrow for the Israelis. They found the young man that killed the Arab boy and he is in jail awaiting trial for murder.

Palestinian children are soaked in hatred of Jews almost from the cradle. Jews are demonized in schools and on children’s television. Kindergartners in Gaza are dressed like terrorists and suicide bombers on graduation day. At higher grade levels, youngsters are encouraged to compose essays expressing their dreams of murdering Jews when they grow up. The preamble to the Hamas Charter calls for the elimination of Israel and Article Seven envisions the extermination of all Jews. And now that the Palestinian authority in the West Bank has formed a unity government with Hamas, there is little reason to believe that their aims are any different.

If you don’t believe me do your homework.  I think it will open your eyes to the truth.  Christians should definitely support the nation of Israel. We must remember that Israel, the nation, is very special to God. We read in Deuteronomy 7:6-8 these words: “For you are a people holy to the LORD your God. The LORD your God has chosen you out of all the peoples on the face of the earth to be his people, his treasured possession. The LORD did not set his affection on you and choose you because you were more numerous than other peoples, for you were the fewest of all peoples. But it was because the LORD loved you and kept the oath he swore to your forefathers that he brought you out with a mighty hand and redeemed you from the land of slavery, from the power of Pharaoh king of Egypt.”

God’s eternal purpose is to bless the world through Israel. Already He has done so in measure, for “salvation is from the Jews” (John 4:22), but the fullness of future blessing is indicated in the wondrous promise of Isaiah 27:6: “In days to come Jacob will take root, Israel will bud and blossom and fill all the world with
fruit.”
The declaration that “salvation is from the Jews” suggests our immeasurable debt to Israel. All that we have worth having has come to us through the Jews. Our Bible is a Jewish Book, and our Savior is a Jewish Savior. Let us never forget to pray for God’s chosen people. It is true that Israel, today, is in the place of rejection. The nation is a secular, unbelieving (as to the claims of Scripture and their Messiah, Jesus Christ) nation; but “…at the present time there is a remnant chosen by grace” (Romans 11:5). Some Jews are being saved and are becoming members of the body of Christ through faith in their Messiah.

Jews are, biblically speaking, the “chosen people of God” and dearly loved by Him. Another reason for Christians to support the nation of Israel is because of the Abrahamic Covenant. We read of God’s promise in Genesis 12:2-3, “I will make you into a great nation and I will bless you; I will make your name great, and you will be a blessing. I will bless those who bless you, and whoever curses you I will curse; and all peoples on earth will be blessed through you” (see also Genesis 27:29; Numbers 24:9).

One of the United States’ most worthwhile accomplishments has been its consistent regard for the plight of the Jewish nation. No nation in the history of the world has a better record of treating individual Jews with respect than does America. The same can be said for our befriending Israel as a nation. America has committed many sins for which we may well deserve judgment, but as a nation, we have been a consistent friend of the Jews and the nation of Israel, as well as a benefactor. In 1948, President Harry Truman helped persuade the United Nations to recognize Israel as a nation. Since then, the United States has contributed billions of dollars in aid to Israel.

From the biblical declarations of God’s love and care for His chosen people, the nation of Israel, and from the history of nations being destroyed because of their evil dealings with God’s chosen people, the Jews, Christian believers should give support to the chosen people of God. This is not to say that we support necessarily the methods they use in their relationships with the Arab nations. The Bible warned that conflict would always characterize the relations between the descendants of Isaac and Ishmael. Sadly, this conflict will continue until Jesus comes back to judge the nations and sets up His 1,000-year reign of peace on earth. We must look at the “big picture” with a biblical worldview. While we do not have to support everything Israel does as a nation, we most definitely should support Israel’s right to exist. God will fulfill His promises and covenants with Israel. God still has a plan for Israel. Woe to anyone who seeks to defeat that plan; “whoever curses you I will curse” (Genesis 12:3).  I stand with God, so therefore I stand with Israel.

PROPHECY BEFORE OUR EYES…. HAMAS MURDERS 25 PALESTINIANS, BLAMES ISRAEL….

Used cease-fire to execute suspected collaborators during ‘humanitarian’ truce

Published: 1 day ago

hamas

TEL AVIV – Hamas killed at least 25 Palestinian civilians it suspected of collaborating with Israel, according to sources close to both Hamas and the Islamic Jihad groups, told World News Daily that most of the extra-judicial killings of suspected collaborators took place during a brief “humanitarian” cease-fire four days ago.

The so-called collaborators were accused of leading Israeli troops to smuggling tunnels and providing intelligence on Hamas’ infrastructure inside Gazan cities.

The sources said Hamas publicly blamed the killings of the Palestinian suspects on Israel, claiming the civilians were murdered Sunday during an Israel Defense Forces “massacre” in the Shujaiyeh neighborhood of the Gaza Strip.

The sources further said the civilian suspects murdered by Hamas were publicly celebrated by Hamas as martyrs killed by the Jewish state.

After Sunday’s operation in Shujaiyeh, in which the IDF says it targeted Hamas’s terrorist infrastructure, Israel agreed to a two-hour humanitarian cease-fire facilitated by the International Committee of the Red Cross. The stated purposed of the lull in fighting was to evacuate Palestinian casualties.

During the cease-fire, the IDF said Hamas violated the agreement by shooting at IDF soldiers. Nonetheless, Israel extended the cease-fire another hour.

Israel lost 13 soldiers during the Shujaiyeh operation Sunday. Hamas claimed Israel killed at least 66 Palestinians, mostly civilians, in that operation.

Israel says most Palestinian casualties were gunmen.
