The Land of Israel Necklace
consists of a crystal glass pendant filled with the entire Land of Israel including Jerusalem, Hebron, Bethlehem, Nazareth, The Sea of Galilee, The Jordan River, The Dead Sea, as well as other locations. The earth inside has beautiful color variations creating a natural layered effect. By wearing the Land of Israel as a beautiful necklace, the land remains in one's consciousness and, literally, close to the heart.
  • Christians for Israel
    Jerusalem Post - March 14, 2007
     Jews and evangelicals will never agree on many issues, but the one on which they do agree is of overwhelming importance. It is natural, given history, that Jews are wary even of a hand outstretched in friendship, and caution is justified. The Jewish people, however, cannot afford, and arguably does not have the right, to simply dismiss a significant potential ally.

  • When an alliance isn't
    Michael Freund - Jerusalem Post - March 14, 2007
     Just because a relationship goes by the name "alliance" does not necessarily make it so. Europe has a long way to go before being worthy of such a description. ..it is time for Israel and the US to stop giving so much weight to European political preaching and diplomatic pontificating. With their record of cozying up to dictators and pursuing commercial deals at the expense of Western strategic interests, European leaders have lost the moral right to tell us how best to run our affairs.

  • The Gilad Shalit reality check
    Dr. Aaron Lerner - IMRA - March 15, 2007
     We have reached the point that its commonplace for Palestinians to be labeled "moderate" if they say they will only try to murder us if they can't get their way without resorting to violence.

  • ‘The LORD brings the counsel of the nations to nothing’
    Stan Goodenough - StanGoodenough.com - March 13, 2007
    The LORD brings the counsel of the nations to nothing;
    He makes the plans of the peoples of no effect.
    The counsel of the LORD stands forever,
    The plans of His heart to all generations.
    Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD,
    The people He has chosen as His own inheritance.
    (Psalm 33:10-12)
    Well, they certainly are straining to push out Palestine, and with increasing desperation. The international community is employing every conceivable approach and strategy to implement the next stage of the ”land-for-peace” process that will see another great chunk of the land God gave to the Jews stolen to grease the oil-and blood-stained Arab hands.

    And, come to think of it, the Quartet midwife does constitute a formidable force:

    There is Christian United States of American President George W. Bush, the most powerful man in the world, principal visionary and sponsor of the two-state-solution, aided by powerhouse Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, a lady keen to leave her particular mark on the history of this region.

    Then there is the secular-humanist and arrogant foreign policy chief Javier Solana, primary pusher for the United States of Europe – the continent with the longest and most sordid history of antisemitism, a prejudice that remains as pervasive as ever from England and France through Spain, Portugal, Germany, Poland and Italy.

    We have Putin-the-Terrible, Russia’s new Czar-in-the-making and “former” KGB thug – who is expensively arming Israel’s enemies (and bumping off his own) even as he adds his increasingly influential weight to the political pressure on Israel.

    And green to the scene, but clearly well-briefed, is United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon, who “within the month” plans to visit Israel and the “Palestinian Authority” in order to “save” the peace process.

    Enthusiastically assisting these parties at the birthing stool with helpful declarations and provocative demands is Britain’s soon-to-be-former Prime Minister Tony Blair, France’s apparently ever-living pro-Arab president Jacques Chirac, Lady-in-waiting for the White House Hilary Clinton, peacenik extra-ordinary Jimmy Carter, and a host of less significant, but no less dedicated [to Israel’s dissection], leaders around the world.

    Divided about so many things, these nations, blocs and individuals have common ground in their resolve to see Palestine – so long a political fantasy and never a historical reality – born as soon as possible onto the world stage.

    And it hardly helps, having weak Israelis – Jews like Prime Minister Ehud Olmert, Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni and, of course, the country’s eminence gris, Shimon Peres, enthusiastically anticipating the arrival of this monstrosity: another Muslim Arab state whose religion and nationalism (which is really one and the same thing) will immediately bond it integrally with the Islamic effort to rid “its” Middle East of this hated race.

    One way or another, these leaders are convinced – and from their perspective how could they be otherwise? – their “solution” will come into being.

    Never mind that the great majority of the Palestinian Arabs have repeatedly stated that they have no intention of “living side-by-side in peace” alongside what would be left of Israel. The world has determined how it will be, and with their combined and irresistible power will move heaven and earth to make it so.

    Well earth, maybe.

    Heaven, however, will not be moved. Heaven has decreed a different future for the Land and People of Israel from the “vain thing” plotted by the Gentile nations. And no matter how many or how prevailing these nations may be, to Him Who sits enthroned above the circle of the earth, they are “as a drop in the bucket and counted as small dust on the scales;” their people “like grasshoppers” in His sight.

    All nations before Him are as nothing, and they are counted by Him less than nothing and worthless. … He brings the princes to nothing; He makes the judges of the earth useless. Scarcely shall they be planted, scarcely shall they be sown, scarcely shall their stock take root in the earth, when He will also blow on them, and they will wither, and the whirlwind will take them away like stubble. (Isaiah 40:17:23, 24)
    As they strategize about how to impose their will in the Middle East, there are a number of geographical areas these leaders – and the principalities and powers which influence them – focus their attention on, specifically the Land of Israel, the City of Jerusalem and the Temple Mount.

    In the coming days we will be taking a closer look at what the world claims, asserts and plans concerning these places. And, far more importantly, we will see, and proclaim, what God has to say about them.

    TheThe Mountains of Israel is an exciting and refreshing new perspective on the Arab-Israeli conflict, clearly outlining how God is fulfilling His Word in modern-day Israel.
