Genetic testing raises an age-old question - are the Jews a people, or a religion?

Egyptian Couple Shot by Muslim Extremists Undaunted in Ministry

EgyptReport from Compass Direct NEWS:

Rasha Samir was sure her husband, Ephraim Shehata, was dead. He was covered with blood, had two bullets inside him and was lying facedown in the dust of a dirt road.

Seconds before, Samir could hear her husband mumbling Bible verses. But one bullet had pierced his neck, and now he wasn’t moving. In a blind terror, Samir tried desperately to stop her panicked breathing and convincingly lie still, hoping the gunmen would go away. Finally, the gunfire stopped and one of the men spoke. "Let’s go. They’re dead."

On Feb. 27, lay pastor Shehata and his wife Samir were ambushed on a desolate street by a group of Islamic gunmen, outside the village of Teleda in Upper Egypt. One of the attackers pushed him off his motorcycle and told him he was going to teach him a lesson about "running around", or being an active Christian. The attack was meant to "break the hearts of the Christians" in the area, Samir said.

Genetic testing raises an age-old question - are the Jews a people, or a religion?

Report from New York Post:

Two new genome studies of Jews worldwide prove that the Jewish people - are, indeed, a people after all.

The first study, by researchers at New York’s Albert Einstein College of Medicine of Yeshiva University, found that Jews across the globe share distinct genetic traits that are different from other groups and that trace back to the ancient Middle East. Researchers say the study, published in the American Journal of Human Genetics, puts to rest age-old questions about whether Jews are a group of unrelated people who share a religious ideology or a distinct ethnicity with common ancestry.

"The debate is over," said Dr. Edward R. Burns, one of the lead authors of the study. "The Jewish people are one people with a common genetic thread that evolved in the second or third century BC."

Nepal Churches Growing Despite Persecution & Tensions

Report from Worthy News Asia Service:

Advocacy group - U.S.-based International Christian Concern - said that Nepal's churches are experiencing "unprecedented growth" despite reported political turmoil and persecution. ICC reported that an increasing number of people turn to Christianity in Nepal at a time when the Asian nation faces turmoil, including a strike by the Maoist party.

The organisation cited research from mission group, Build International Ministries (BIM), as proof that the Nepali churches grew from a handful in the 1950’s to denominations with over 100,000 active members today. "Churches are growing by leaps and bounds everywhere," amid difficulties, added BIM President, Sandy Anderson, who spent the last 25 years working with Christians in Nepal. "We have had a heavy transition in Nepal, but despite the difficult situation the church continues to thrive."

Thousands of Aboriginal People Converge on Ottawa, Canada

Chief Kenny BlacksmithReport from Forgiven (

Thousands of Aboriginal individuals assembled in Ottawa recently to release the forgiveness that Prime Minister Stephen Harper requested in 2008. The Prime Minister concluded his apology for Indian Residential Schools by requesting "the forgiveness of the aboriginal peoples of this country for failing them so profoundly."

"At that moment," says Chief Kenny Blacksmith, "the onus was placed on our people as individuals to respond. The only way to come into our full healing as the First Peoples of Canada is to forgive. Forgiveness is not political; it cannot be bought or sold; it cannot be legislated. It is an individual choice that can break the generational cycle of victimization and accusation."

‘Ray of Hope’ as Iraqi Parliament Approves Five Christian Seats
and ...
It’s True: Israel Was the ‘Land of Milk and Honey’

Report from Worthy News Asia Service:

Assyrian International News Agency (AINA) reports that the Christian community in Iraq "may see a ray of hope" as Iraq’s Federal Supreme Court has approved the results of the March election which include five Christian seats in the Iraqi parliament.

According to the report, the five Christian seats comprise part of 14 seats in the Iraqi parliament that are held by non-Muslims. The legislature has a total of 325 seats. Last term, Christians only held two seats.

It’s True: Israel Was the ‘Land of Milk and Honey’

BeeReport from Breaking Christian News:

The Bible often refers to Israel as the "land of milk and honey," but until recently most scholars assumed the "honey" referred to a fruit nectar. Now, since the discovery of a 3,000-year-old apiary in the Jordan Valley three years ago, and the theory that the bees were actually from Turkey, researchers believe the Bible was referring to the "real thing."

"This is a very special discovery ... because there is no evidence from before for bringing any kind of animals from such a distance, especially bees, which represent a quite complicated, sophisticated type of agriculture," said archaeologist Amihai Mazar of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. "This throws new light on the economy of the Biblical period."

Second Wave of Deportations Hits Foreign Christians in Morocco

Report from Compass Direct News:

In a second wave of deportations from Morocco, officials of the majority-Muslim country have expelled 26 foreign Christians in the last 10 days without due process.

Following the expulsion of more than 40 foreign Christians in March, the deportations were apparently the result of Muslim hardliners pressuring the nation’s royalty to show Islamic solidarity.

The latest deportations bring the number of Christians who have had to leave Morocco to about 105 since early March. Christians and expert observers are calling this a calculated effort to purge the historically moderate country, known for its progressive policies, of all Christian elements – both foreign and national.

Khosrow, from IranAn Iranian has a vision of Jesus

Report from

Even as a small child, Khosrow questioned the "meaning of life." Everything around him raised questions. Why do flowers have color? What’s beyond the stars? Where do we go when we die? When no one could answer his many questions satisfactorily, his sensitive nature gave way to a growing depression.

One day as a young man, he passed by an Assyrian Christian church and decided to go inside, thinking he might find answers to some of his "questions." There were only a few elderly women there and an elderly pastor who gave him a box of books. The books were all in Farsi and among them was a copy of the New Testament, which Khosrow read from cover to cover. But the experience of reading alone was not enough to satisfy his search for answers. He threw the book across his room in despair.

Just then, the form of a man came to him in a vision. This man extended his hands toward Khosrow and told him: "Take my hands and everything will change forever".

Jesus Was a Gypsy

Report from

"When a Gypsy becomes a Christian, the change is extraordinary", says Rudi Walter. He should know. Once in the grip of a drug and gambling addiction, he is a living example of a Sinte who has been powerfully transformed by an encounter with Christ. Now, as Scripture-use specialist on the Sinte Romani Bible translation project, he is eager to see God’s Word change the lives of many more Gypsies. "Jesus speaks Romani, and this touches our hearts", Rudi explains. "It is our language, and He speaks in Romani—into our problems."

Jos, NigeriaRelease say, ‘Step up security in Nigeria and defend reporting freedom’

Report from Release

Release International is warning that unless Nigeria steps up security to prevent violence against Christians in Jos, the situation could spiral out of control. Following the murder of three reporters, Christian human rights organisation, Release, is also calling for journalists to be protected so the truth can be openly reported.

A reporter from Nigeria’s The Nation daily newspaper was shot dead at his home in Lagos at the weekend, and Christians have been mourning the death of two journalists working for the religious press and five others, who were murdered by suspected Islamist extremists.

Nigeria’s opposition party, the Action Congress, warns that journalists are ‘becoming an endangered species’, and fears the security situation is worsening. Hundreds have been killed in religious violence in Jos this year.

When Was the Bible Really Written?

10th century BC pottery shard discovered in IsraelBy decoding the inscription on a 3,000-year-old piece of pottery, an Israeli professor has concluded that parts of the bible were written hundreds of years earlier than suspected.

The pottery shard was discovered at excavations at Khirbet Qeiyafa near the Elah Valley in Israel - about 18 miles west of Jerusalem. Carbon-dating places it in the 10th century BC, making the shard about 1,000 years older than the Dead Sea scrolls.

Dr. Navras Aafreedi and TalibanCan the Taliban turn to be Israel-Lovers?

Are the Pathan/Pashtun tribes really one of the lost tribes of Israel?

Dr. Navras Jaat Aafreedi, is a Researcher in Indo-Judaic Studies and Medieval & Modern Indian History with a focus on Pathans/Pakhtuns/Pashtuns, and a Member of the Advisory Team on The Ten Lost Tribes Challenge: "Expeditions of Discovery".

Dr. Aafreedi says he was born a Muslim, but describes himself today as a Human Secularist with a deep belief in G-d. He spent a year in Israel and came away with a love and appreciation for the Jewish nation.

He says that there are perhaps forty million Pathans alive today who generally believe that they descended from the Lost Tribes of Israel calling themselves ‘Bani Israel’ (B’nei Yisrael/children of Israel).

Spanked kids do better later in life

Flying in the face of conventional wisdom, a psychologist has concluded that preschoolers who were spanked by their parents are more likely to grow up happier and be more successful than kids who have never been spanked, the National Post reported.

Dr. Marjorie Gunnoe, a professor of psychology at Calvin College in Grand Rapids, Michigan, believes there is not enough evidence to prove that getting spanked harms most children. She presented her findings at a conference of the Society for Research in Child Development.

A Lebanese woman tells the truth!

Brigitte Gabriel was raised in Lebanon, where she was taught that the Jews are evil, Israel is the devil, and "the only time we will have peace in the Middle East is when we kill all the Jews and drive them into the sea."

In a speech made at Duke University, Maryland, USA, she declared, "I’m proud and honored to stand here today as a Lebanese, speaking for Israel, the only democracy in the Middle East. As someone who was raised in an Arabic country, I want to give you a glimpse into the heart of the Arabic world."

Lemon grass plantA drink with as little as one gram of lemon grass contains enough citral to prompt cancer cells to commit suicide in the test tube, according to new Israeli research.

At first, Benny Zabidov, an Israeli agriculturalist who grows greenhouses full of lush spices in the Sharon region, couldn't understand why so many cancer patients were showing up on his doorstep asking for fresh lemon grass. It turned out that their doctors had sent them.

"They had been told to drink eight glasses of hot water with fresh lemon grass steeped in it on the days that they went for their radiation and chemotherapy treatments," Zabidov told ISRAEL21c. "And this is the place you go to in Israel for fresh lemon grass."

Haiti Christians 'Miracle' Survival

Road to the Temple MountThe main road that ran from Jerusalem's City of David to the Temple Mount during the time of the Second Temple has been uncovered by Israeli archeologists, those involved in the dig said. The road connected the Shiloah pool in the City of David to the Temple Mount compound.

Monsanto, is in the process of acquiring and patenting their newest technology, known as "Terminator Technology." This technology is currently the greatest threat to humanity. If it is used by Monsanto on a large-scale basis, it will inevitably lead to famine and starvation on a worldwide basis.

Amid destroyed churches and the stench of human death, native Christians prayed for Haiti Sunday, January 24, and one believer said it was a miracle he had been found alive a full 11 days after the magnitude 7.0 earthquake shook his nation. Wismond Exantus, 24, was plucked to safety at the weekend – hours after Haiti's government officially declared the search for survivors over. Exantus thanked God for saving his life and added that he survived on cola, crisps, beer and whisky. At least 200,000 other Haitians are believed to have died in the disaster.
