January 2018 Project: Special-Needs Israeli Children
Terrorists target children!
An Arab mob targeting Jewish hikers in Samaria
Islamic terrorists who cover their faces and hide in Mosques and other politically sensitive locations, target Israeli children─where ever they find them. We have read for years about the school bus, pizzeria, bus stop, shopping center and other attacks in the Jewish communities of Judea and Samaria.
The latest and the most unthinkable attack took place in Samaria at the end of November. A group of twenty-five boys with two adults from Migdalim were on a planned hiking trip that was approved by the IDF. It was the boys’ private bar mitzvah trip. Suddenly, they saw dozens of Arab young men who began attacking the hikers with stones in a planned ambush.

When the Arab mob tried to force their way into the cave to lynch the boys, they were met with warning shots. The terrorist returned fire along with rocks. At the end, the army rescued the hikers and medics took care of the wounded hikers and terrorists as well. The group was hiking far from Arab villages, however, terror attacks happen everywhere and anytime. Children who have experienced an attack such as this need time to recover. For a few of them, the trauma is too much to overcome. As Israel has suffered from thousands of terror and rocket attacks, there are also hundreds of traumatized children. Join us to assist them and their families. Thank you so much!
September Project: Communities Under Attack
Rioters in the Tomb of the Rock compound proves that the site has no meaning to Muslims other than use as a political weapon against Israel.
In mid-July, three terrorists opened fire on a group of policemen near the Temple Mount in the Old City, killing two Israeli police officers and injuring two more. Both killed were young Druze officers. The attackers had brought several guns to the Islamic holy site. The two attackers lost their lives during the attack. The Jerusalem Police Commander, along with the Public Security Minister, issued a directive barring Muslim and Jews from accessing the holy site. Security forces were on high alert across the country. When the Temple Mount was again open for visitors, the Muslim Waqf (Muslim religious authority) denied Muslim entry and joined with other Islamic groups to “boycott all Israeli aggression measures,” including placing metal detectors on the Temple Mount. (It is difficult to see how an improved security for all visitors would harm Muslim worshippers.)s always in any situation in the Holy City, the Waqf encouraged rioting. Thousands of Palestinians entered the site after a 12-day boycott. Some hurled stones at police, causing injuries.
As always in any situation in the Holy City, the Waqf encouraged rioting. Thousands of Palestinians entered the site after a 12-day boycott. Some hurled stones at police, causing injuries for 10 police officers and over one hundred Palestinians. As a result of days-long rioting, Israel agreed to remove the metal detectors, handing a victory to the Palestinians. Thankfully, Israel has ultimate control over the site and can limit access as needed.
Please join us to stand with Israel in Jerusalem and in all the Jewish communities under attack. Thank you!

The Future of Israel Revealed in ProphecyWhen Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu visited the White House in February, the conversations between the two leaders were matters of politics that have power to shake the entire world. Derek Prince states in his book Promised Land─The Future of Israel Revealed in Prophecy:It is no accident that Israel, a nation no bigger than the state of New Jersey, continuously dominates the headlines around the globe. Why has this tiny, struggling land become the fulcrum of all human history? What is the main destructive force─profoundly at work in the Middle East─that is threatening international peace and security?
The answers to these questions are already decided. The only question remaining is When?
With the clarity of today’s headlines, Prince brings us face to face with the God who guards His promises and His Word with awesome love and faithfulness. We catch a glimpse of His plan, unfolding through human history and culminating with the advent of His glorious Kingdom on earth.
May the “Promised Land” by Derek Prince blesses you with Biblical understanding about the current events. We will send you the book for a donation of $25 or more.

Hear O Israel…
Rocket fire from Gaza is all too familiar in communities of southern Israel. One of the attacks took place during the Rosh HaShanah holiday in Sderot. As rockets landed near their school, hundreds of terrorized children cowered under their desks. They were directed to recite the prayer from Deuteronomy 6:4: “Hear O Israel, the Lord our God, the Lord is one!” Children are well trained and know what to do in the event of an attack as they undergo regular drills in their schools.

Most of the rocket attacks cause damage to buildings and cars in the vicinity and send people to hospitals. In schools, educational psychologists visit immediately each classroom to speak with the children.
According to a study conducted by the Natal Trauma Center for victims of terror and war, 70% of the children living in Sderot are suffering from at least one symptom of PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder). One-third of all Sderot residents suffer from anxiety and have trouble functioning in daily life.
In addition to regular assistance and home visits to attack victims, our projects also provides school packs for children of families whose financial situation is affected by the rocket attacks. The children are always most thankful for your love and care. We sincerely thank you for all the support you have provided for these communities and trust that you will continue standing with us for their survival.
