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, […]

This, too, is Jerusalem

Dr. Herbert Hillel Goldberg

It was Thursday afternoon, May 26. We had just said our farewells to guests visiting from Australia when we noticed smoke, assuming it came from the Arabs burning garbage across the valley from us, as they often did in the night to irritate us. Then we saw the small planes, ultimately there were eight of […]

UNRWA – Who asked you?

Yair Lapid

The writer is a member of the Knesset, Israel’s parliament, and chairman of the leftist Yesh Atid Party.  The United Nations has been taken hostage. It’s time to rescue it. UNRWA spokesman Chris Gunness harshly criticized our decision to demolish the homes of two terrorists who last December stabbed two Israelis to death at the […]

A new world was born while we slept

David B. Goldberg, M.A.

In a parable of Jesus, it says, “While men slept, his enemy came and sowed weeds among the wheat, and went his way” (Mt. 13:25). The life of Bible believers today, whether Jew or Christian, is being altered rapidly, but few are noticing or doing anything about it. Muslim terrorists are blowing up, chopping up […]

Human Rights at the United Nations

David B. Goldberg, M.A.

There may be some bad-apple nations, but surely the 191 countries represented at the United Nations can be relied on to promote human rights and peace and human progress? The UN General Assembly passed 20 resolutions last year condemning Israel for supposed violations. Most dealt with Israel’s presence in biblical Judea and Samaria (so-called West […]

Iran and its European Union Ally

David B. Goldberg, M.A.

With Iran agreeing to just delay the development of nuclear bombs for a decade or so, all is forgiven and trade resumes. In January, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani and an entourage of 120 visited Italy and signed deals worth US$18 billion. […]

Who Battles Against the Truth?

Dr. Herbert Hillel Goldberg

God is Truth! In the book of His Word, the Truth is communicated with us. The Jewish People are God’s personal possession (Deut. 7:6). Worldwide, the Jews are known as the People of the Book. Nowhere is the resistance and battle against God–the Truth–expressed more strongly than in the negative treatment of Jews internationally. This […]

The Pride of Nations

David B. Goldberg, M.A.

A fundamental principle of Jewish teaching is that there is no excess in Holy Scripture; every word is essential. So why is the story of Aaron’s elder sons, Avihu and Nadav, who were consumed by fire when they offered “strange fire” at the dedication of the Tabernacle, mentioned four times in the Torah (Lev. 10:1-2; […]
