  Israel quietly rescues wounded Syrians

By Aviel Schneider  ~ September 09, 2013


      Embattled Syrian dictator Bashar Assad has threatened to destroy Israel if his regime is attacked by the US. This despite the fact that Israel has saved the lives of many Syrians wounded in their nation's civil war. Since the start of the Syrian conflict until early September, the Jewish state had treated more than 150 Syrians in hospitals across northern Israel. Wounded Syrians try to flee across the Syrian-Israeli border on an almost daily basis.


The Israeli media recently reported on a Syrian grandmother who fled with her nine-year-old granddaughter to Israel because Assad's troops had blocked all roads to the hospitals in Syria. In Israel, the girl received the life-saving treatment she required. The names of most of these victims cannot be published because eventually they have to return home to Syria.


Another Syrian in an Israeli hospital told Israel Radio that he had nothing bad to say about Israel: "...Most Arabs in Israel, the Golan Heights and Palestine [sic] are originally from Syria. If the borders were open, we would have the freedom to visit one another." ...


"At home in Syria we are slaughtered. But among our enemies, the Israelis, we find refuge," said a 30-year-old Syrian who came to Israel with his severely wounded brother."

3,000-year-old text sheds light on biblical history

A few characters on the side of a 3,000-year-old earthenware jug dating back to the time of King David have stumped archaeologists until now -- and a fresh translation may have profound ramifications for our understanding of the Bible.


Experts had suspected the fragmentary inscription was written in the language of the Canaanites, a biblical people who lived in the present-day Israel. Not so, says one expert who claims to have cracked the code: The mysterious language is actually the oldest form of written Hebrew, placing the ancient Israelites in Jerusalem earlier than previously believed.


"Hebrew speakers were controlling Jerusalem in the 10th century, which biblical chronology points to as the time of David and Solomon," ancient Near Eastern history and biblical studies expert Douglas Petrovich told


If Petrovich's analysis proves true, it would be evidence of the accuracy of Old Testament tales. If Hebrew as a written language existed in the 10th century, as he says, the ancient Israelites were recording their history in real time as opposed to writing it down several hundred years later. That would make the Old Testament an historical account of real-life events.....


According to Petrovich, archaeologists are unwilling to call it Hebrew to avoid conflict. "It's just the climate among scholars that they want to attribute as little as possible to the ancient Israelites," he said. Needless to say, his claims are stirring up controversy among those who do not like to mix the hard facts of archaeology -- dirt, stone and bone -- with stories from the Bible.

Note: When God's people rejected God's Word and relied on idols and or their own strength, God withdrew His blessings and allowed enemy forces to conquer their holy city. But -- through the generations -- whenever they turned back to Him with "all their heart," He restored them and led them in His victory. 

"On that day, when all the nations of the earth are gathered against her, I will make Jerusalem an immovable rock for all the nations. All who try to move it will injure themselves."  Zechariah 12:3
