Poor "Palestinians" Are No Worse Off Than Anybody Else...

We all know that there are starving people all over the world. Some countries suffer more than others. In most cases, those that have, try to give a bit to those that don't.

Since the announcement by the USA that funds to the PA were being cut off, the news is full of the cries for the rest of the world to make up the much needed money for the "starving Palestinians".  There are indeed those that are less off, as in every country and culture, but the outcry that they are being "starved" is far from the truth.

Below is a video that you will not see in the mainstream media. Contrary to popular belief, Gaza is actually a thriving area~and they are not the most heavily populated in the world. According to information taken from the UN, they weren't even listed in the top ten and Wikipedia's latest indication on cities does not list them at all, but interestingly, Bnei Brak in Israel is number six on the Wikipedia list.

"The European Union and other foreign aid projects pour streams of cash (often yours) into the pockets of thousands. The UNRWA provides more workers and aid per person to the PA than to all the other "refugees"  combined in the world"

So, before you fall for the calls to immediately send money, take a look at the video below from beginning to end and remember that their leaders are all "multi"  billionaires.

You C.A.N. Make a Difference~Part II

Recently we posted Part I of  "You C.A.N. Make a Difference", the amazing story of the battle against human trafficking and child sex slavery in Nepal. 

The Rawlings family first traveled to Nepal in 2013 and immediately fell in love with the gentle people who were filled with kindness despite living in abject poverty. 

When Meridel saw the countless numbers of young girls and boys who had suffered and been abused at the hands of ruthless traffickers, she immediately recognized that they desperately needed help. She felt their pain and knew she must take steps to find a way to help with the healing process. 

Thus began the long journey to form a non-profit organization, C.A.N. (Change Action Nepal) dedicated to helping Nepal and to "give a voice to the voiceless".  

Israel Vision TV produced this documentary film for C.A.N. (Change Action Nepal) with Indira Ghale to help educate people about the problems of human trafficking of children in Nepal. With Change Action Nepal YOU TOO, can help to stop human trafficking and child sex slavery today.

Remembering Israel's "Tentifada"~Part II

On 15 January 2018, we re-posted part I of a film on the 2011 "Tentifada" Protests that took part across Israel.

David and Daniel Rawlings traveled from Be'er Sheva to Tel Aviv and on to Kiryat Shmona to speak to Israelis of all ages who had set up an impromptu protest against the government.

In locations from north to south there were tents, lawn chairs, snacks, drinks and Bar-B-Qs set up. There were many complaints. One of the biggest was the fact that rents were so intolerably high and wages so intolerably low.

In Part 1~David spoke to protesters in Be'er Sheva and Tel Aviv. In Part II the traveled to Kiryat Shmona and back to Jerusalem. The overall mood was surprisingly mellow. Yes, people were frustrated~they camped out in protest, but they did it peacefully!

Israel is not a perfect country, her citizens are not shy about making their frustration known, but for the most part they remain steadfast and loyal.

You C.A.N. Help Abused and Trafficked Children!

In March of 2016, we posted a trailer and story of a new production on Nepal that the Rawlings family were working on called, "You CAN make a Difference".

The project focuses on the plight of sexually abused and trafficked children in Nepal.

Meridel Rawlings (Still Small Voice) has made it her life's work to comfort, and help rehabilitate all those who have been victims of horrible abuse. In December 2017, we posted Part I of Meridel's own "life journey" and her "battle to overcome"  in "Speaking Out." In this amazing story, Meridel tells us:

“In childhood I was silenced by control, fear, shame and conflict.
It took decades for my voice to be sounded”...Meridel Rawlings

Now, Meridel is speaking out and acting to "give a voice to the voiceless". Both Jay and Meridel Rawlings have been working for several years to assist in setting up a non-profit organization to aid the tremendous work taking place in Nepal. Below is Part I, in English with Norwegian sub-titles.

Super Moon~Blue Moon~Blood Moon Over Israel!

Photo Credit:  Daniel V. Rawlings
Shalom Dear Friends,

The 30th~31st of January 2018, is the New Year of the Trees here in Israel. In Hebrew it is called, Tu B'Shvat. So what, you may say.

On Wednesday, 31 January 2018, we were able to experiencing a once in a life time happening right here inside of Israel! On this night, over Jerusalem, there arose a Super Moon, A Blue Moon, A Blood Moon and a Lunar Eclipse moon.

It is the biggest lunar spectacle we will ever witness and it can't be a coincidence that this moon rose over Israel in celebration tonight. The last time it happened was in 1866.

* A blue moon appears to be an extra full moon.
* A lunar eclipse is rarer,
it was visible here as it rose above Jerusalem.
* A blood moon takes place when sun light reflects from the setting moon through the earth's atmosphere. It causes the moon to appear blood red. The Book of Revelation mentions the blood moon as a sign.

The amazing thing is this entire lunar event looks more spectacular to the naked eye! The moon tonight is also a super moon because it is approaching closer to the earth than usual. As mentioned, the last time we had the five moons ALL at once was 150 years ago.

It is no accident that this amazing phenomenon is taking place on Israel's lunar holiday of the trees. God is speaking clearly.

We gathered at the synagogue tonight to celebrate, sing songs and taste a very colorful selection of fruit and nuts. What a perfect time to say "thank you" for the many blessings brought to us by the trees. I am also thinking of how they faithfully cleanse the air we breathe and provide us with fresh oxygen day and night.

Modern Israel has planted 250 million trees; creating a carbon foot print offset much larger than many nations much greater in size than tiny Israel!

One day Jay said:
   "Meridel, I want to you to promise me something"
   "Well, what is it?"
I asked.
   "Promise me." he said.
   "What is it?"
   "Promise me that you won't plant any more tree in our garden!"
Without a moments hesitation I replied, "I couldn't possibly make such a promise!"

Since 1976 I have encouraged my husband and sons to plant 537 trees in Israel. (14 in our small garden)
But friends, that is not why I am writing...It is time to favour Zion! The Word clearly shows this.

I am zealous for Jerusalem
And for Zion with great zeal.
I am exceedingly angry with
the nations at ease;
For I was a little angry, and
they helped, but with evil intent.

I am returning to Jeusalem with mercy;
My house shall be built in it,
says the LORD of hosts...Zechariah 1:15, 16a.

Every Blessing to you and your family~Happy New Year of the Trees,

The Rawlings Family

ICEJ's Original Founders Stand Shoulder to Shoulder with Israel

In 2017 President Donald Trump Recognized Jerusalem as the eternal capital of Israel. Even though this has always been the case, the "world embassies" have long refused to acknowledge this fact. 

One embassy would be different from all the others. ICEJ (International Christian Embassy Jerusalem) was founded by a group of faithful lovers of Israel to show the world that they did believe in Israel and Jerusalem as her eternal capitol.

Jay and Meridel Rawlings were a part of this undertaking more than thirty-five years ago. As they have made their mark in media, they decided that this great event should be documented for all to remember.

Below is a short clip of the original founders remembering this momentous occasion

Olive Harvest in Israel

In Israel, during the latter part of every year the olive trees are laden with fruit. All over the country there are olives trees along the sides of the roads, on isolated patches of dirt, or in beautiful orchards.

When they ripen you will see people up in the trees with canvas bags over their shoulders picking the ripe fruit.

A more common way to gather the olives is to lay canvas or plastic sheets on the ground and "beat" the branches to bring the olives down.

Jay and Meridel Rawlings planted olive trees in their back yard many years ago. While olive trees take a long time to grow, they also can last for hundreds of years. As the trees have matured, the olives have become more and more plentiful and the harvest has turned into an annual event for the family.

Now, each year they harvest their small crop and take it to the Olive Press to be made into beautiful, pure, Israeli Olive Oil~how wonderful it is to enjoy the "fruits of our labours".
The LORD replied to them:
“I am sending you grain, new wine and Olive Oil, enough to satisfy you fully;
never again will I make you an object of scorn to the nations"...Joel 2:19 (NIV)

Join with the Rawlings this year, in their backyard as they celebrate life; and bring in the harvest during the last days of the year before the heavy rains begin!

Save the Christians: The Forgotten Refugees

This film is a first access look into the lives of Iraqi Christians who, under threat of death from ISIS, were forced to flee their ancestral homeland.

While the international community has opened its doors to Syrian (muslim) refugees, it ignores the Christian genocide happening right before its eyes. 

The few who make it to refugee camps, are targeted for violence. Those seeking a safe haven are routinely shunned by Western governments~just check the immigration figures. The suffering Christians of Iraq have nowhere left to run to.

Why is the world ignoring these refugees? Why are the Christians of the world remaining silent to their suffering at they same time they open churches to be used a mosques? Why?

Remember the often repeated statement: “First the Saturday People (Jews), then the Sunday People (Christians),” which means “first we kill the Jews, then we kill the Christians.” Take a good hard, honest look at the Middle East now. The Jews have already been driven out of every country except Israel and now the Christians are facing the same fate. The choices are convert or die. Those who still have the means and ability are trying to flee. 

Even resettlement is being denied them now, as the muslim populations are rapidly growing across Europe and the west and the government elites seem to have chosen sides. Check the immigration records of each country and compare the numbers of muslim and Christians allowed in. There is an appalling lack of Christians.

Ask yourself this:

   1)  What will you do in the west when you are eventually faced with the choices (convert or die)?  

   2)  What are you prepared to do NOW to help your suffering Christian brothers and sisters?
