Trump announces Israel-Sudan peace deal, has call with Netanyahu, Sudan leaders

Third Arab nation within months to make peace with Israel! US President Donald Trump announced Friday that Sudan has agreed to make peace with Israel, making it the third Arab state to normalize ties as part of US-brokered deals since August. During a call with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Sudan Sovereign Council president General Abdel Fattah al-Burhan and Sudanese Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok, Trump brought reporters into the Oval Office and announced: “The State of Israel and the Republic of Sudan have agreed to make peace.” “It’s just a new world,” Netanyahu said over the phone as Trump took questions from the White House press corps in the Oval Office. “This truly changes the re

Yad Vashem honors German pastor for standing up for Jews

Unlike so many others, Julius von Jan chose not to look away in silence when a wave of pogroms across Germany left hundreds of Jews dead while thousands of synagogues, cemeteries, businesses, and other properties were destroyed, defiled, plundered or torched.

Will the Church Remain Silent or Take a Stand?

Tricia Miller As Christian leaders, you know that we are living in tumultuous times – both in society as a whole and in the church world in particular. As leaders, we are called to understand the times in which we live, and with that understanding, take appropriate action. A significant element of these times in which we live is the alarming rise of global antisemitism and opposition to the State of Israel, which is fueled by the ever-increasing battle over truth in the media, academia and government.
