Three IDF soldiers were wounded this week when in the early morning a Hamas member from Gaza belonging to a force restraining border violence breached the security fence and opened fire on Israeli troops in the area. The Israel military shelled a Hamas outpost adjacent to the fence as a response. There was one incident this week of a fire balloon which caused a fire and damage in one of the southern settlements.
The State of Israel is in the middle of forming a new government after its recent elections. Israel is in the center of the world and cannot be ignored.
Judaism is the first of the three religions which are Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. After the giving of the Torah on Mount Sinai, the Jewish people were given their Torah by Moses. Between the giving of the Torah on Mount Sinai and when the children of Israel entered into the land of Israel took forty years. In the beginning of these forty years there was an event in Jewish history recorded in the Bible which was the building of the Golden Calf. Another event in Jewish history recorded in the Bible Numbers 13: Moses sent spies from each of the twelve tribes of Israel distinguished men to report to the Jewish people in the wilderness about their capability of conquering and living in the land of Israel.
- In much-anticipated elections last week, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu took a giant step toward an unprecedented fifth term in office. The results were rather anticlimactic: parties which made up the last government lost only one seat on Tuesday. Netanyahu’s Likud Party topped the polls, with 36 seats, and is well positioned to form an identical right-wing government.
- Israelis go to the polls Tuesday, in Knesset elections largely seen as a referendum on Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. The elections take place under a cloud of possible indictments against the Prime Minister for corruption. A victory would extend Netanyahu’s decade-long reign, and allow him to become the country’s longest-serving Prime Minister this summer.
