Jews and Christians in a Hostile World

David B. Goldberg, M.A.

Last year was a relatively “good” year for Christians. Only 90 thousand were killed for their faith in 2016, down from 105 thousand in 2015, according to the highly respected Center for the Study of Global Christianity at the Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary near Boston. That’s one every six minutes. From 2000 to 2010, 100 thousand […]

Understanding our Time

Dr. Herbert Hillel Goldberg

Many people are unable to apply the allegorical references of the Bible to the present. Equipment and instructions are suited for a specific time.

Looking for words of peace from a peace partner

David B. Goldberg, M.A.

While world pressure on Israel to make more sacrifices for peace continues to build, Israel waits for a peace partner to appear. But so far, the Palestinian Authority is in absentia. At the United Nations in September, before an audience of nearly two hundred nations, an optimistic Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu even invited PA […]

The madness of the year gone by

David B. Goldberg, M.A.

It has been a year of tragedies, threats and disappointments. Terrorism is rampant, the threat of enemies grows daily, and the humanitarians that should be friends betrayed us. In the year since Rosh Hashanah 5776 (the biblical new year, September 13-15, 2015), when the latest intifada against Israel began, 44 persons, ages 13 to 78, […]

Three quotations

David B. Goldberg, M.A.

Yehuda Bauer on the movement to boycott Israel Yehuda Bauer, 90, is Professor Emeritus of History and Holocaust Studies at Hebrew University, Jerusalem. Professor Bauer says the boycott movement wants “not a better Israel, they want no Israel….Now of course, they love Jews. Especially dead Jews.
