In US Court, eleven families of Americans killed by Palestinian terrorist attacks (while they were visiting or working in Israel) have sued and won a massive award for wrongful death. The Palestinian Authority and the Palestinian Liberation Organization are facing damages that could reach $650 million. And let us make no mistake -- they deserve to be forced to pay every penny.
Now as the PA and PLO are preparing to appeal, the Obama Administration's Justice Department has intervened to argue that they should not have to post bond guaranteeing payment if they lose the appeal as is normal in such cases. It is almost unprecedented for the government to make such an argument, and it is hard to see any valid reason why our own government is trying to protect the funding for terrorists rather than protecting American victims of that terror. It is one of the most outrageous things I've seen in forty years of standing for Israel.
My beloved prayer team partner, you and I are facing great evil in the spirit realm directed against God's Chosen People. We must stand and fight this battle with the spiritual weapons God has given us -- that is the only hope!
The Jerusalem Prayer Team has made our support of Israel and the Holy City plain by building and opening the wonderful Friends of Zion Museum just 600 meters from the Temple Mount. Every day we are telling the true story of Christian love for the Jewish people to hundreds of visitors from all around the world.
