Listen to Israel in the News

Responding to an Iranian threat to close down the strategically critical Straits of Hormuz, the Obama administration sent the aircraft carrier USS John C. Stennis and its accompanying battle group to the area. The move sends an unambiguous message to the Iranians: you’ll have to go through the US Navy to close the Straits.

Also this week in Israel in the News:

  • Mass protests agains the government continue in Syria
  • Former Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak was back in court this week, charged with ordering the killing of hundreds of protesters during the Egyptian uprising last spring
  • In Afghanistan, three NATO service members were killed in an attack by Taliban terrorists
  • An anti-Semitism lawsuit against the University of California at Berkeley has been dismissed

In this week’s Israel in the News Perspective, IFCJ President Rabbi Yechiel Eckstein offers his thoughts on the year that has passed, and the year that is to come.

Listen below to Israel in the News — and a Happy New Year to all!

    I pray daily for Israel. I pray that Israel seek God and do like Esther in the Old Testament….call for a national fast and pray for the deliverance of Israel from its enemies..

    My prayers are with Israel’s leaders and with the people who are under constant strain. I admire the brave calm actions of these people as they endure real threats constantly.
    May God bless and keep them until his coming.

    There is no one who can come against Israel unless they want to fight against the God of Abraham, Issac and Jacob, the one and only true God our creator of all life. Foolist people think they can come against God Almighty, the Great I AM. God said He will protect Israel in these last days…He chosed them read the Holy Words of God (the bible)
