The One Rally The Democrat Media Complex
Doesn’t Want To Cover

This Strategy Involves Talking Back To Biased Professors
And The Entire Notion Of ‘Replacement Theology’

Lead Story by Jennifer Burke, Tea Party News Network (TPNN) —
As anti-Semitism seems to be sadly on the rise in America, one group took a very visible stand in support of Israel that did not get coverage from the Democrat Media Complex.

On Monday July 21st, Christians United for Israel (CUFI), headed by evangelical pastor John Hagee, held a rally in D.C.. The rally, named the Washington, D.C. Summit, unabashedly demonstrated their support of Israel. This happened as many countries around the world turned against Israel, as pro-Hamas rallies were held in both Europe and America, and as the Obama regime has largely remained silent on the anti-Israel sentiment that is disturbingly on the rise.

Israel is working diligently to defend itself from the thousands of missiles being shot at them by Hamas in Operation Protective Edge. CUFI is simultaneously letting its voice be heard in their support of Israel’s efforts and right to protect itself.

FrontPageMag reports on Hagee’s efforts to #StandWithIsrael.
Led by firebrand evangelist Pastor John Hagee, some 4,800 foot stomping, shofar-blowing Christian delegates traveled from across the nation and some from overseas to attend the non-stop cavalcade of podium grandiloquence, towering video effects, mesmerizing Israeli music, and special informational sessions. Part tent revival and part political salvo, CUFI’s Washington Summit is patterned after the mega-gatherings staged by the American Israel Public Affairs Committee in the same hall. CUFI speakers brought clarity and context to its attendees in the midst of the latest fog of the latest Arab-Israeli war.
The group’s effort in support of Israel was recognized by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu..
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu took time, via taped message, to thank the evangelical crowd for standing by Israel during its hourglass of need. He spoke from Israel, bunkered in a secure room at the height of the conflict that day. To thunderous applause, Senator Lindsay Graham exhorted the Israelis in their Gaza strategy to “go as far as you need to go, and do what you’ve got to do.”
CUFI has efforts that extend beyond simply rallies and gatherings. They also announced a strategy to counter the “Replacement Theology” teaching at colleges which erroneously identify the Jews as losing their covenant with God.
To counter Christianity’s internal upheaval about the Jewish State, the podium proudly acknowledged 800 campus representatives in attendance engaged in a bold new student-led initiative to combat BDS, anti-Jewish agitation, and a rash anti-Israel attacks on campus, from the dorm room to the classroom. This strategy involves talking back to biased professors and the entire notion of Replacement Theology.

» The AP Might As Well Stop Pretending To Be Neutral After The Anti-Israel Gesture They Just Made
By B. Christopher Agee, Western Journalism —
AP content...ostensibly strives to be the pinnacle of unbiased coverage.
While an anti-Israel bias might not be uncommon among America’s leftist media, the Associated Press posted an article – along with an accompanying Twitter post – that resulted in widespread criticism. AP content, which is used by other news outlets across the nation, ostensibly strives to be the pinnacle of unbiased coverage. The first paragraph of a story published this week, however, portrays the U.S. support of Israel as something altogether worthy of derision. “Members of Congress are falling over one another to show their support for Israel,” the article begins.

» Danny Danon: Obama ‘Yelled’ At Netanyahu In Ceasefire Demand
By Bill Hoffmann, Newsmax —
President Barack Obama “yelled” at Benjamin Netanyahu during a tense phone conversation as he demanded that the Israeli prime minister agree to an unconditional, humanitarian ceasefire in Gaza, a former Israeli defense official told Newsmax TV on Tuesday. “It was not a pleasant conversation if you saw what happened . . . it was not pleasant,” Danny Danon — a Likud party member of the Knesset and Netanyahu’s former deputy minister of defense — said on “The Steve Malzberg Show.”...

» Is Your Favorite “Christian Leader” Part Of The Problem?
By Bradlee Dean, The Sons Of Liberty —
‘Christian’ leaders fail to bring the truth
“There is a common, worldly kind of Christianity in this day, which many have, and think they have enough – a cheap Christianity which offends nobody, and requires no sacrifice – which costs nothing, and is worth nothing.” – J. C. Ryle. The more I learn about this nation’s leadership in the church and in government, the more I can clearly see why America is in the state that it is in. The compromise I see is second to none. Compromise, of course, is where two people get together and agree on what they both know is wrong. Diplomacy (or political correctness) is another sorry trait these people take on, which is simply destroying our country. Diplomacy is nothing but seduction in another guise...

» Washington Council Votes to Display ‘In God We Trust’ Motto Amid Controversy
By Heather Clark, Christian News Network —
TACOMA, Wash. – Members of a county council in Washington State have voted to display the motto ‘In God We Trust’ in the council chambers following controversy over whether the motto was inclusive or exclusive in its meaning. By a vote of 4-3, the Pierce County Council approved the resolution, making the council the first government entity to display the motto in the state. But the matter had been the subject of debate since its introduction by sponsor Jim McCune (R-Graham). Some had asserted that the motto referred to the Christian God, and therefore alienated others who professed a different religion or no religion at all....

» Israeli Christians: What About Our Brothers In Iraq?
By Ryan Jones, Israel Today —
Arabic-speaking Israeli Christians are growing increasingly frustrated by the Western “Christian” world’s exaggerated focus on Gaza, while it all but ignores the forced conversion, execution and exile of Iraq’s ancient Christian community. A group of some 200 Christians from across northern Israel on Sunday gathered in Haifa in solidarity with the Christians of Iraq, and in support of Israel’s military operation against Hamas in Gaza. Most of these Christians belong to a group advocating local Christian enlistment in the Israeli army.

» Meriam Ibrahim’s ‘Heroic Witness To Virtues Of Faith, Marriage and Motherhood’ Praised In Open ‘Thank You’ Letter By Christian Woman
By Nicola Menzie, Christian Post —
Meriam Ibrahim, arrested last August in Sudan and sentenced to death after being accused by family members of apostasy and adultery, was not only pressured to recant her Christian faith and thereby nullify her marriage, but was kept in shackles while giving birth to her second child in prison. At least one Christian woman, also from Africa, was lauding the 27-year-old's resilience, and thanking her for bearing "heroic witness to the virtues of faith, marriage, and motherhood." "I am a Christian and I will remain a Christian," Ibrahim resolutely declared in a Sudanese courtroom in May, where she was sentenced to death for alleged apostasy and 100 lashes for adultery...

» Hamas Spells It Out: Our Aim Is The Extermination Of The Jews
By Staff, Arutz Sheva —
In sermon from central Gaza Strip Hamas cleric says his group aims to 'totally exterminate' every last Jew in Israel. As the 22nd day of the IDF's Operation Protective Edge in Gaza draws to a close, MEMRI (the Middle East Media Research Institute) has published a video in which a Hamas cleric lays out the organization's "doctrine" in its fight against Israel: genocide. Speaking in a televised address from Deir al-Balah in the central Gaza Strip, the preacher said that Hamas's aim was to "totally exterminate" the Jews living in Israel, because "wherever the Jews lived they spread corruption".

» China Ramping Up Persecution Of Christians
By Daniel Wiser, The Washington Free Beacon —
Issued orders to demolish more than 100 churches in the province
Chinese authorities are ramping up their persecution of Christian churches in response to what they perceive as an emerging threat to the communist regime, according to reports. Public security officials in recent days forcibly removed crosses from two churches in the southeastern coastal province of Zhejiang, the New York Times reported. Authorities have now issued orders to demolish more than 100 churches in the province—most of them state-approved, as opposed to the illegal underground communities suppressed by officials. Chinese officials appear to be acting on concerns that the growing Christian movement could soon rival the influence of the 86 million members of the Communist Party. A 2011 Pew Research report estimated that China has 67 million Christians, about 5 percent of its population...

» Appeals Court Stops Pro-Life Law That Could Have Made Mississippi Abortion Free
By Steven Ertelt, Cheryl Sullenger, Life News —
A federal appeals court has stopped a pro-life law that could have made Mississippi the first state to be abortion free. A three member panel of the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals heard oral arguments earlier this year concerning the constitutionality of Mississippi’s law that requires abortionists to maintain hospital privileges within 30 miles of their abortion clinic. If allowed to be enforced, the law could close the Jackson Women’s Health Organization, the only abortion clinic in the State of Mississippi.. The abortion facility could not obtain admitting privileges at a local hospital and would have been forced to close out of noncompliance with the law...
