Peace Talks Suspended

Palestinian-MobIsrael has suspended peace talks with the Palestinian Authority, in the wake of that government’s recent swearing in of a Hamas-backed Palestinian “unity government” in Ramallah, just north of Jerusalem. An internationally recognized terrorist organization, Hamas remains intent on destroying the Jewish nation of Israel.

In a surprising statement, Palestinian Authority President Abbas has said the new government recognizes Israel, accepts past agreements with Israel and renounces terrorism. Consequently, the new “technocratic government” has been endorsed by the US and the EU.

Yet, Hamas spokesmen, true to their Islamic tenants, have said the group’s design to destroy the Jewish nation has not changed—as evidenced by its recent call on members of its armed wing in the West Bank to target Israeli soldiers and civilians.

May the one true God, who watches over Israel, “neither slumber nor sleep” (Psalm 121:3)!
