Gaza Cease-Fire Unravels; Israeli Soldier Kidnapped


Shayn Roby’s Take: Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was spot on in telling Barack Obama to mind his own business. He has a disregard for American law and a disregard for the safety of NON-Muslims, PERIOD.

The latest attempt at an Israel-Hamas cease-fire disintegrated Friday. After the capture of an Israeli soldier, the conflict edged closer to escalation than to peace.

The soldier was “abducted” by Palestinian militants during an attack in Gaza in which two other Israeli soldiers died, Israeli military Lt. Col. Peter Lerner told CNN’s Wolf Blitzer. The soldiers were decommissioning a tunnel at the time, Lerner said.

The Israel Defense Forces earlier identified soldier as 2nd Lt. Hadar Goldin. A search operation is under way to find him, Lerner confirmed.

Hamas spokesman Osama Hamdan denied the group had captured a soldier.

“It’s clear that the capture of the soldier is an Israeli story; there’s nothing from the resistance saying there was a capture,” he told CNN.

Hopes for an announced 72-hour humanitarian cease-fire between Israel and Hamas didn’t even last two hours, by some accounts. As has been a hallmark of the…

The Need for Peace on the Border


Shayn Roby’s Take: Spiritual warfare is taking place throughout the globe. There is a border crisis with regard to our nation, but it must be remembered that we have Christian brothers and sisters in almost every nation, all citizens of Israel through the Blood of Jesus.

Yesterday I met with Pastor Jose Luis Rivera and his wife Raquel. They are facing tremendous opposition in an area of Tijuana called, Lazaro Cardenas. A witch and a mean-spirited family have set out to turn the community against them.

Jose Luis and Raquel have been doing prayer walks and sharing the love of Christ in the neighborhood. The people are receptive to the message, but they don’t end up coming to church.

Pray for a Person of Peace

We talked about various things, but one of the things that I encouraged them to pray for is a person of peace. A person in the community that is influential that can open doors for them.

A Red Menace


Shayn Roby’s Take: These deadly predators can be a threat to pets, humans, and livestock.  Even more so than the Obama administration, fire ants can appropriately be referred to as “the red scare”.

The Dish

Justin Nobel offers a glimpse into the threat posed by fire ants:

Today, if you draw a line from Virginia Beach to Nashville to Abilene in west Texas, you’ll find dish_antsfire ants everywhere below it, as well as in Southern California. The ants’ annual impact on the economy, environment, and quality of life in the United States totals $6 billion, according to entomologists at Texas A&M University. In Texas alone they rack up $1.2 billion each year: $47 million at golf courses; $64 million at cemeteries (the ants love the open and slightly overgrown habitat around tombs); and as much as $255 million in the cattle industry. They cause other problems too. In Virginia Beach, 30-year-old former marine Bradley Johnson was stung by fire ants while working outside—and died of anaphylactic shock. On at least one occasion, fire ants invaded an elementary school in Tennessee to get candy stashed in…
