Have you wondered who is really helping the children, women and men in the recent 2018 surge of 300,000 refugees fleeing their homes in the various war zones in Syria? We want to present a “Middle East Peace Plan” that is successfully healing families’ hearts and lives and reconciling them with great endearment to Israel – a country which many Syrians only fear.
Under the IDF’s “Operation Good Neighbor,” vital help is being provided by brave Christian doctors and relief workers in Frontier Alliance International (FAI). FAI is the IDF’s most trusted Non-Governmental Organization and, together, Jews and Christians are making peace through healing.
Discover how you can help Syrian Refugees now – SYRIA // AN URGENT APPEAL.
OPERATION GOOD NEIGHBOR is the Israeli Defense Force’s mission of compassion for Syrians and others in their need and hope for a better working relationship between Israel and Syria. Over the past six years, the men and women in the IDF have seen war destroy the lives of Syrian civilians. They couldn’t stand by and watch. While carrying out Operation Good Neighbor, the IDF has had the honor of meeting their Syrian neighbors, hearing their stories and helping them heal. WATCH OUR BATTLE FOR TRUTH VIDEOS HERE

- The violence, and incitement to violence, directed by Egyptian Muslims against the Copts — especially those organized sectarian campaigns by the Muslim Brotherhood and related groups — are crimes against humanity and should be treated as such by the international community.
- We know that a few drops of lemon will curdle an entire bowl of milk. Egypt’s Muslims, as many Muslims elsewhere, have poured the entire Nile River — made toxic by their bigotry and violence — into their faith-tradition. We, Muslims, have degraded our culture by authoritarianism and the obstinate tendency to blame others for our own failings. We have thus perverted the very Islam that we believe is the final revelation.
- Muslims in Egypt and elsewhere know from experience the extent to which Western powers have betrayed in practice what they pronounce in theory when it comes to support for people subjected to authoritarian regimes.
- What is long overdue from the West is a robust policy to defend and secure human rights for everyone, especially minorities, in Muslim-majority countries… [as in] the Helsinki Agreement of 1975.
We have seen and recoiled from the horrific footage of Coptic Christians beheaded by ISIS in 2015 in Libya and the repeated bombings over the past two decades of Coptic churches in Egypt. We read about the Maspero massacre in 2011, when Egyptian military tanks, deployed to protect peaceful Christian demonstrators, instead rolled over them, crushing many to death. And we continue to receive reports of Coptic girls abducted, compelled to convert to Islam and forced into marriages with Muslims.

Where did Sean Andrew Duncan get the idea to do all these things? Could these ideas have had anything to do with his new, peaceful religion? Could it be from Islam that he got the idea that murdering non-Muslims was a righteous act (cf. Qur’an 2:191, 4:89, and 9:5)? And that prepubescent children could be objects of erotic interest, in light of the fact that Muhammad, the supreme model of conduct for Muslims, consummated his marriage with the nine-year-old Aisha when he was 54?
“‘I was a poser,’ says young man caught with Islamic State propaganda and child porn,” by Rachel Weiner, Washington Post, July 6, 2018:
When the FBI knocked on his front door in December, Sean Duncan says, he ran out the back carrying a thumb drive full of child pornography. He broke it in half and doused it in cleaning solution.
But in a sign of how strange his criminal case has been, prosecutors say he might be lying in an effort to conceal ties to terrorism or information on the death of his son.

UAE foreign minister says crisis between Qatar and gulf states, Egypt will not be solved soon due to Qatar’s support for terror.
Anwar Gargash, United Arab Emirates State Minister for Foreign Affairs, published an article in which he asserted that the crisis with Qatar cannot conclude soon, as Qatar still supports terror.
The article was written by Gargash in the Saudi daily Al-Hayat and titled “Qatar – a year of shattered dreams.” In the article, translated and disseminated by MEMRI, Gargash argued that the crisis with Qatar was not created ex nihilo but crystallized after years in which Qatar acted opportunistically to consolidate its regional status while undermining the security of the region, undermining the stability of its neighbors and violating the agreements with them.
He said that today, a year after the crisis, there is no hope of resolving the crisis in the foreseeable future, because Qatar, despite its isolation and despite the harm caused to it by the crisis, has not changed its ways and continues to support terrorism and extremism and undermine regional stability. Gargash reiterated that the crisis will be solved only after Qatar changes its conduct on these matters. He said that even if Qatar did commit to doing so, it would be required to present guarantees, since the Gulf states have no confidence in the Qatari leadership.
“Today, one year after [the outbreak of] the crisis with Qatar, we understand that the main factors that led to the crisis still persist, and that they cannot be dealt with without addressing Qatar’s support of extremism and terror and unless Qatar stops harming others. But experience teaches us that the solution requires guarantees, for we have no faith in the Qatari leadership, especially after the 2013-2014 [Qatar crisis] and considering the wrangling and deception that characterized Qatar’s handling of the crisis over the past year,” he wrote.

An annual survey published by US News and World Report found that Israel was the eighth most powerful country in the world.
Israel was ranked as the eighth most powerful country in the world, according to a survey published Saturday by US News and World Report.
The rankings look at the influence of a nation as well as its political, economic and military power. A country’s alliances factor in as does its influence and whether the country is a leader, US News and World Report said in its description of the rankings.
The US was ranked the world’s most powerful country, followed by Russia, China, Germany, Britain, France and Japan.
Israel was ranked after Japan.

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY: Although nuclear strategy must, by definition, be shaped without historical precedent, it should contain certain ancient core concepts. The strategic postulates first laid down by Sun Tzu could be referenced usefully by the current architects of US nuclear strategy, especially with reference to an already nuclear North Korea, and to a plausibly future nuclear adversary in Iran. These first principles could be applied to US ally Israel, in consequence of their direct impact on US policies, and to ongoing North Korean military activity in Syria or the wider Middle East.
Ancient Chinese general and military strategist Sun Tzu’s The Art of War should be studied by US President Donald Trump’s senior military advisors. Their examination of the text ought to focus on maximizing the credible range of America’s nuclear deterrent and on shaping the Pentagon’s correlative order of battle.
