The Times of Israel: “The IDF’s Home Front Command on Wednesday simulated a chemical weapons missile strike in the capital with thousands of wounded and hundreds of dead.
The nationwide three-day drill, code-named Turning Point 7, which on Wednesday also simulated missile strikes on Israel’s parliament building, has unfolded amid rising tension between Israel and Syria — a country that possesses some 1,000 tons of chemical weapons.
Opinion: By now, we know the prophecy in Isaiah 17:1, 14 by heart. We know that in some future day Damascus will cease from being a city. But read a little further and in verse 4 we find “In that day it shall come to pass That the glory of Jacob will wane, And the fatness of his flesh grow lean.”
The glory of Jacob is Jerusalem and it doesn’t take a long look to see that it is waning. Today, the Palestinians are demanding East Jerusalem for their capital and there is pressure from every government except Canada, to give it to them.
