NEW YORK – Israel is living in fear of what might come after the recent chemical weapon attacks in Syria, revealed Dr. Mitch Glaser, president of Chosen People Ministries, a Messianic Jewish organization, who said that lives will be changed at the upcoming "The People, the Land and the Future of Israel Conference" in New York in October.
"We don't know where those weapons are going, we just pray that those weapons don't end up on Israel's doorsteps," Glaser said in an interview with The Christian Post on Thursday.
"The People, the Land and the Future of Israel Conference," which is a three-day event running from October 3-5 at Calvary Baptist Church in New York, brings together notable speakers with insight into questions regarding Biblical prophecy and Israel, such as bestselling author Joel Rosenberg. more >>
Russian President Vladimir Putin's Thursday op-ed for The New York Times arguing against American intervention in Syria contained many false, misleading and hypocritical statements. Here are seven of them.
1. "No one wants the United Nations to suffer the fate of the League of Nations, which collapsed because it lacked real leverage. This is possible if influential countries bypass the United Nations and take military action without Security Council authorization."
Hypocrisy. Putin led attacks against Georgia and Chechnya without U.N. approval. more >>
In an extraordinary op-ed in today's New York Times, Russian President Vladimir Putin – a former KGB agent – lectures our country and our president about many things, finishing with rather patronizing remarks about American exceptionalism and the equality of men.Writes Putin:
"I would rather disagree with a case he made on American exceptionalism, stating that the United States' policy is 'what makes America different. It's what makes us exceptional.' It is extremely dangerous to encourage people to see themselves as exceptional, whatever the motivation. There are big countries and small countries, rich and poor, those with long democratic traditions and those still finding their way to democracy. Their policies differ, too. We are all different, but when we ask for the Lord's blessings, we must not forget that God created us equal."
First, although his own record deviates profoundly from his stated belief that "God created us equal," his assertion is itself correct. However, it is noteworthy that last year, the same New York Times that today published the ultimate oligarch's exhortation to the land of the free detailed his wealthy lifestyle, which makes that of multiple czars combined seem minor.

On Wednesday, people across the United States of America remembered the anniversary of the terrorist attacks on 9/11. Places like The Pentagon and New York City were the sites of ceremonies in remembrance of those lost.
While September 11 is most widely known in the American public consciousness as the anniversary of a national tragedy, it is also the date for other major events in human history. Other notable events include other somber occasions such as major battles and regime changes, but also more hopeful events like new year celebrations and birthdays of famous people.
So without further delay, here is a list in no particular order of other major past events that fell on the eleventh day of the ninth month. more >>
Greater love has no man than he lay down his life for his friends. So said Jesus Christ.
There are many heroes we can honor on 9/11. Such as those who fought back on the plane that went down in a field in Pennsylvania. (Said Todd Beamer: "It's time. Let's roll.") Such as all those firemen who went up the Twin Towers as they were burning from the terrorist attacks.
Thousands commemorated some of those heroic firefighters in runs across the US, including one called "Tunnels to Towers," to remember fallen fireman, Stephen Siller, who died on 9/11, trying to rescue as many as he could. At my pokey pace, I even got to run such a race in Ft. Lauderdale. more >>
The question of whether or not the current events taking place in Syria are connected to the End Times is a "legitimate question," says an author and expert on the Middle East and End Times prophecy.
Joel C. Rosenberg, New York Times bestselling author of books such as The Last Days and Epicenter, and founder of the pro-Israel The Joshua Fund, told The Christian Post that such speculations should be taken with caution, but are legitimate ponderings. "I think we have to be very careful not to overreach or to sensationalize a terrible situation that's happening to real people right now and to draw a conclusion too quickly," said Rosenberg. "That being said, the prophecies of Isaiah 17 and Jeremiah 49 are very important. They speak to the utter destruction and judgment of the city of Damascus at some point in the End Times future."
Rosenberg, whose bestselling novels often feature end times themes, also told CP that "these prophecies have never been fulfilled in history so far." more >>
