EUROPE CALLS ISRAEL 'MODEL' STATE: The supreme commander of NATO operations in Europe and head of the U.S. European Command John Craddock, has called Israel a "model state" and the United States ' closest ally in the Middle East . He commended the stability of Israel 's government and said Israel encouraged democratic ideals and pro-Western values and economics. Craddock, speaking in Washington said Israel consistently and directly supported U.S. interests by means of security cooperation and understanding U.S. policy in the region. (Ha'aretz ) "'I will give you honor and praise among all the peoples of the earth says the Lord." Zeph. 3:20

SNEH: TALK TO ABBAS, DRIVE OUT HAMAS: Deputy Defense Minister Ephraim Sneh is strongly urging Israel to circumvent the new Palestinian Authority government, finalized March 15th, and to try and strike a peace agreement with PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas of Fatah. He said that it is the only way to drive Hamas from power. The new Hamas-Fatah coalition does not meet international conditions, including recognizing Israel 's right to exist. Political leaders in Jerusalem said Israel would not establish any contact with the new PA government. ( J.Post)

The incoming finance minister of the Palestinian Authority, Salam Fayed, has admitted that 700 million dollars of foreign aid has been siphoned off through fraud and corruption since the Hamas terrorist government came into power. He said out of control salaries are being paid to government workers who never turn up, and nobody can track where the money is going; 700 million dollars has simply disappeared. (Arutz-7) "By justice a king gives a country stability, but one who is greedy...tears it down." Proverbs. 29:4

Israeli PM Ehud Olmert, Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni, and U.S. Vice President Dick Cheney, speaking at a recent American Israel Public Affairs Committee, warned the U.S. against a premature departure from Iraq . All agree it would be a disaster for the entire Middle East . Cheney, reiterated his country's support for Israel and criticized opponents of the war in Iraq who have called on the Bush administration to increase the pressure on Iran . He said it is inconsistent to demand aggressive action against a menacing Iranian regime while at the same time acquiescing in a retreat from Iraq . (Arutz-7) "He rules forever by his power, his eyes watch the nations. Let not the rebellious rise up against him." Psalm 66:7

IRAN: The U.N. Security Council's five major powers and Germany agreed last week to increasing sanctions against Iran . U.S. officials said they had hoped to apply tougher measures but faced resistance from key council members such as Russia , a major supplier of arms to Iran . Iranian leader Mahmoud slammed the Security Council agreement and said it would not deter Iran from pursuing its nuclear program. ( Washington Post)

IRAN PLANS TO KIDNAP ISRAELIS: Iran is threatening to kidnap Israelis, Europeans and Americans. The move is in retaliation for what Iran claims was an undercover operation by the West to kidnap senior officers in the Iran Revolutionary Guard. Iranian sources say several officers have been kidnapped over the past three months with the aim of destabilizing Iran 's military. The Revolutionary Guard's newspaper, Subhi Sadek, said Iran intended to strike back. ( J.Post) "The wicked plot against the righteous and gnash their teeth at them; but the Lord laughs at the wicked." Psalm 37: 12,13

IRAN: Shin Bet (Israeli Intelligence) Director, Yuval Diskin warned days ago that hundreds of Hamas members have been sent to Iran for long-term, high-quality training. He expressed concern that in another two or three years it will be very difficult to deal with the Gaza Strip problem. Senior Likud legislator Yuval Steinitz, in the wake of Diskin's report, reiterated his call for an Israeli military ground offensive in Gaza . He said the picture being presented by Intelligence is very grave. (Haaretz)

LARGEST WEST BANK SETTLEMENT NOT BUILT ON PALESTINIAN LAND AS CHARGED: In November 2006, Peace Now charged that 86% of Maale Adumim was private land seized from Palestinians to build Israel 's largest West Bank settlement.

According to the data only 0.5% of the settlement is built on private land. (Herald Tribune)

2ND-TEMPLE JEWISH TOWN UNCOVERED IN JERUSALEM: The ruins of an ancient Jewish community just north of the Holy Temple have been uncovered, in the course of preparing tracks for the new light-rail system in Jerusalem . Recent digs have unearthed remains of a Jewish town from post-Second Temple times, including houses, public buildings, a mikveh and roads.
