The Blockade of Gaza

Authored by roundtable on Tue, Jul 15 2014 - 05:53 PM

  Hamas has had a nasty habit of smuggling in weapons of all kinds along with other goods heading into Gaza; and this was the argument for setting up a blockade of Gaza. This weapons smuggling has been a real concern for Israel but it is now 7 years and no real solution has been found for allowing reasonably priced legitimate goods into Gaza. ...

The First of the 4 Blood Moons

Authored by roundtable on Thu, Jul 10 2014 - 09:45 AM

  The first blood moon has shown itself consistent with the prophesies in The Book of Joel.   However we shouldn't sit back and assume that a devastating war we can do nothing about, will unfold in Israel. The Book of Joel says there are things we can do, namely: repent from our sins (follow the teachings of Jesus, the 12 apostles, ...

Harshest Sentence in Modern Day Egypt?

Authored by roundtable on Tue, Mar 25 2014 - 08:41 AM

  I am no friend of the Muslim Brotherhood, however, imposing the death sentence to 529 Muslim Brotherhood supporters en masse is appalling. Calling it steam roller justice would even be too kind. I quite sincerely doubt that all 529 individuals stood there and clubbed one policeman to death. If they all yelled out to the court that the ...

Referendum Under Duress

Authored by roundtable on Sun, Mar 09 2014 - 03:16 PM

  I would say thar Russia would have stood a fairly good chance of winning the upcoming referendum in Crimea without the presence of Russian troops in the area. But I guess the Kremlin doesn't want to take any chances. With the troops hovering around and "filtering" the voters it should be much easier to get the result the Kremlin wants. ...

SB 1062

Authored by roundtable on Wed, Feb 26 2014 - 05:54 PM

  I have not read the entire bill only the clarification document at: http://www.azleg.gov/legtext/51leg/2r/bills/sb1062p.pdf   so this is not meant to be a complete evaluation only a cursory overview. I suggest the reader do their own online search or contact the Arizona legislature for more complete information.   It appears ...

What's Going on in Scotland

Troubles in the Central African Republic

Authored by roundtable on Sat, Dec 14 2013 - 10:05 AM

  Christians have unfortunately gone after Muslims indiscriminately trying to exact  revenge , after Islamic terrorists attacked and killed Christian civilians.   This is an example of why Jesus did not want vigilantism. Too many innocent people get killed when people go looking for revenge in the middle of a rage. They often don' ...

Two Issues

Authored by roundtable on Sun, Nov 10 2013 - 08:53 AM

  I don't think churches should be legally required to comply with laws enabling and endorsing homosexual behavior. That would be akin to manufacturing hypocrisy. And that would show lack of discretion. Churches should be left to formulate policy from the Bible.   Future negotiations with Iran may show some promise. As this century ...

Syria At Large

Authored by roundtable on Fri, Aug 30 2013 - 04:58 PM

Secretary of State John Kerry made a good speech today. I believe the perceived crisis is as  important as it appears to be and that "there is a price for doing nothing" as Kerry mentioned. When Adolf Hitler first defiantly marched into the Rhineland no country wanted to send in troops to confront him. The restrictions put on post WWI Germany ...

Mid August Tragedy in Egypt 2013

Authored by roundtable on Wed, Aug 14 2013 - 05:17 PM

  Internal strife in Egypt is nothing new. However, now, perhaps for the first time in modern history, Egypt has the chance to set up an effective working government (without the help of Britain or France) that is not a corrupt dictatorship. It is sad to see that this opportunity suffered a setback with the slaughter of Muslim Brotherhood ...

Egypt in Crisis 2013

Authored by roundtable on Fri, Jul 05 2013 - 10:13 PM

  Egyptians wanted to remove a dictatorship but Mursi thought differently. He acted as if all he had to do was win one election and then he could be Grande Caliph for life. Another Mubarak, but with a Muslim emphasis. It is no surprise that the Egyptian people didn't buy it.   What the Muslim Brotherhood needs to realize is that Egypt ...

Korean talks

Authored by roundtable on Mon, Jun 17 2013 - 04:09 PM

  Apparently North Korea would like to see the US government arrange talks between the North and South. Could North Korea be sincere? There is one way you could examine the sincerety of the request: ask North and South Korea to submit their proposed itineraries, then it should be easier to see what amounts to political posturing and what ...

The Morsi Regime

Authored by roundtable on Tue, Jan 29 2013 - 12:30 AM

It doesn't surprise me at all that President Morsi of Egypt is in trouble. When he declared a curfew, basically what he said indirectly through his words and actions, is that democracy doesn't matter any more. That was like throwing gasoline on top of a smoldering fire. Most Egyptians are not too impressed with his version of democracy, which is ...

New Jersey Hurricane Relief Fund

Authored by roundtable on Wed, Jan 02 2013 - 05:06 PM

  It seems that Congressional help for Hurricane Sandy victims may be delayed.One website I found easy to use was the one set up by New Jersey First Lady Mary Pat Christie and the Governor. It accepts gift cards and they don't ask for your phone number. It's nice when they don't ask a lot of intrusive questions when you're tryin to help.So ...

Remembering the Children

Authored by roundtable on Sun, Dec 16 2012 - 10:08 AM

  We are living in a society where you cannot trust anyone, not even your own children (the first person the gunman in Connecticut killed was his mother). That is why most people decline to support gun control legislation. But maybe we are tackling the problem from the wrong direction. The last few of these mentally disturbed cowards have ...

SANDY--WHAT'S NEXT

Authored by m7th on Mon, Oct 29 2012 - 08:59 AM

  SANDY Sandy is going inland slowly and is about to create the largest castrophy this country has known from the weather. The storm is going to affect some of the costliest real estate in the U.S. The winds or the floods will probably damage if not destroy about 80% of it. On top of that there are fruit orchards, flower plants farms(some ...

Benjamin Netanyahu chart

Authored by roundtable on Fri, Sep 28 2012 - 06:40 AM

Prime Minister Netanyahu may not be the best diplomat, however he is fairly accurate in detecting military threats. If PM Netanyahu went to the trouble of making a chart, I think the world should take notice and consider the activities of Iran to be dangerous and at a critical stage. roundtable ...

A Simple Statement (Chick-Fil-A Day)

Authored by roundtable on Sun, Aug 05 2012 - 09:55 PM

  Kudos to Governor Mike Huckabee (foxnews.com) for initiating the "Chick -Fil -A Appreciation Day".   First of all it showed that there are quite a few Christians in America who are willing to stand up for their rights and rebuke those who trespass against them (Matthew chapter 18, lines 15-17).   Second , it allowed ...

Abducted Children

  It's been a week now since Isabel Celis of Tucson has gone missing. Her kidnapping appears to have occured through her window. It was apparently forced open from the outside and the abductor(s) gained entry. This is quite similar to the Elisabeth Smart case where the kidnapper also gained entry through her room's window. If you are the ...

The Syrian Riddle

Authored by roundtable on Tue, Jan 10 2012 - 06:09 PM

  The killing of demonstrators in Syria has now been going on for a long time and the news networks are right in focusing their attention on this issue. Syria is a complex question for a number of reasons:   1) The Russian government doesn't want other countries getting involved. Russia has veto powers at the United Nations.   ...

WHAT'S THE DEAL, NOW ?

Authored by roundtable on Tue, Aug 02 2011 - 06:41 PM

  During the 1930s Roosevelt brought in the New Deal to put people back to work. In the 1950s Eisenhower planned suburbia for the growing post war families. One was a public works program. The other was private sector enterprise. Both of them did the job. Nowadays it looks as if politicians are too busy trying to gain power and engage in ...

Please Pray for our Christian Brothers and Sisters in Egypt

Authored by roundtable on Fri, Jul 29 2011 - 04:33 PM

    As most Christians have heard by now, Christians in Egypt have come under attack on a regular basis by extreme elements in Egypt. Christians have had their churches burned (sometimes on the basis of some gossip or rumor) and have been victims of drive by shootings. The authorities have promised freedom of religion but are usually ...

A Significant Prophecy was Fulfilled July 1, 2011

Authored by Templestream on Mon, Jul 11 2011 - 10:13 AM

On July 1, 2011, the 10 founding nations of the European Union relinquished their authority to a small group of insiders and whomever may become president of the EU. If you don't know how this fulfills prophecy, along with other telling signs and events that are coming to pass, you should probably read this article: EUterus and the Rebirth of a ...
