Today on Israel’s celebrated Jerusalem Day, over 100 rockets have landed inside the Jewish state, including Jerusalem. Islamic Jihad has just posted a video of an attack on an Israeli vehicle using an anti-tank missile. To view, see today’s broadcast. Moreover, launched by Hamas, seven rockets have now hit Jerusalem – Israel’s capital.   

Indeed, over the last several hours, as Jews prayed at the Western Wall and celebrated their ancient capital – the holy city of Zion – the only capital city to have ever been mentioned hundreds of times in the Hebrew scriptures, the Torah or the Old Testament, the Jewish people have remained under constant bombardment. In this second video, watch as Jewish citizens continue to pray as violent riots by Muslim Arabs are also transpiring on the Temple Mount.   

Moreover, it is Ramadan. Muslim violence against non-Muslims is typically increased during this Islamic holy month. Meanwhile, Christians are also under constant terror and threat of death in the Sinai. See:  

U.S. National Security Advisor, Jake Sullivan, has called on Israel to show restraint. However, a better use of the Biden administration’s time would be to have multiple conversations with senior PA officials and leaders of the Hamas terror entity to end terrorist attacks initiated against a sovereign nation-state. Contact Biden through his comment line at 202.456.1111. Tell him to support Israel’s right to self-defense!  

Moreover, these rocket attacks coming from the Gaza Strip suggest that Hamas and the Islamic Jihad, i.e., Palestinians who terrorize Israel as well as local Christian Arabs, are likely acting as proxies for the Islamic Republic of Iran.  

Hear the Islamic Republic of Iran’s latest propaganda as they call for Israel’s annihilation in this music video on today’s broadcast. . . . 

Israel’s Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu response has been to make it clear that those terrorist organizations attacking the entrances to Jerusalem with missiles will be met with “great force.” He went on to state: “We will not suffer harm to our territory, our capital, our citizens and our soldiers. Whoever attacks us will pay a heavy price.” 

And on a day when Jerusalem is bombed, 13 Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps fast-attack vessels came within 150 yards of U.S. ships. The purpose of which appears to harass U.S. ships escorting the USS Georgia – a guided missile submarine. It needs to end! Tell the Biden administration it is time to put Iran in its place, not negotiate another nuclear deal that rewards Iran for bad nation-state behavior.
