Israeli Youth Die in Judean Flood

Seven of the 10 students killed in flash floods during a hike in the Dead Sea area were being laid to rest on Friday afternoon, with their bereft parents, siblings and friends eulogizing them in turn as noble would-be leaders, firm “lovers of life,” and their “little girls.” Seven of the funerals — those of Ella Or, Maayan Barhoum, Yael Sadan, Romi Cohen, Agam Levy, Shani Shamir and Tzur Alfi — took place just after noon, drawing thousands of mourners.

Ahead of Independence Day

This Independence Day in Israel – on Wednesday – marks a big one. It’s the country’s 70th anniversary. Israelis know how to party – from concerts to block parties to street festivals. Before the partying, however, it’s worth taking a moment to reflect back on how near a thing Israel’s declaration of independence was.

Why Evangelical Support for Israel is Waning

The recent Christ at the Checkpoint Conference has a number of evangelical groups concerned about waning support for the nation of Israel among Evangelicals (see here and here ). David Brog of Christians United for Israel even wonders whether the end of evangelical support for Israel has come. While there is no doubt a push for greater recognition of Palestinian Christians among certain evangelical groups, a key issue that has yet to be addressed is the role of dispensationalism and its view of the End.
