GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump has claimed that he'll defeat Islamic State terrorists if elected president of the United States by bombing "the hell out of them" and taking their oil, which would cut down their wealth.
"I say that you can defeat ISIS by taking their wealth," Trump told Fox News host Bill O'Reilly. "Take back the oil. Once you go over and take back that oil, they have nothing. You bomb the hell out of them, and then you encircle it, and then you go in. And you let Mobil go in, and you let our great oil companies go in. Once you take that oil, they have nothing left."
When asked about whether he would send ground troops into Syria to fight ISIS, Trump said he would not reveal such plans yet. The billionaire suggested, however, that an effective general is needed to implement the strategy against the Islamic militants. more >>

Jewish author Avi Lipkin claimed Monday that "all" churches in America have been infiltrated by Muslim spies who frequently pretend to have found Christ but are really looking to provide intelligence to radical Muslims who will try to kill all Jews and Christians when jihad is ordered upon the U.S.
Lipkin, who has authored a number of books critical of radical Islam, frequently speaks at Christian churches around the U.S. to emphasize the importance of unity between the Jewish and Christian communities in standing against the advance of radical Islam. Lipkin, who immigrated from New York to Israel in 1968, spoke at this week's Future Conference held at Skyline Church in San Diego where he proclaimed that the world is facing the "most interesting" biblical period since the days of Jesus Christ and contended that the coming of the Messiah is just around the corner.
"We are realizing with our own very eyes fulfillment of more Bible prophecy than in any other generation in 2,000 years," Lipkin asserted. "I believe the Messiah is in our time and I believe Israel will realize its borders." more >>

California megachurch pastor Greg Laurie shared with the congregation of his Harvest Church on Sunday what Jesus taught about Israel in the end times, and said that the United States needs Israel more than Israel needs America.

"Israel is at the eye of the hurricane of the great events of the end times," he stated. more >>
