Israeli Minister says Israel should disengage from UN, annex West Bank

(Worthy News) – Israel’s Agriculture Minister Uri Ariel said Tuesday that the Jewish State should consider slowly disengaging from parts of the UN, as well as annexing Area C in the West Bank.

Ariel was asked by i24NEWS host of the Spin Room, Ami Kaufmann, if he thinks that the Jewish character of Israel should take precedence over its democratic character, referring to the proposed bill that defines Israel as the nation-state for the Jewish people.

“Yes I do. It’s not by chance that the nation state bill states that Israel is a Jewish and democratic state. Israel is first and foremost Jewish and then democratic. Of course we need a balance,” Ariel said. [ Source:i24 (Read More…) ]

Algeria Launches Crackdown on Christians, Shuttering Churches

Algeria Launches Crackdown on Christians, Shuttering Churches

(Worthy News) – Authorities in the north African nation of Algeria are closing churches in an attempt to curtail the activities of minority Christians in this Muslim-majority nation.

In the past several months, three congregations associated with the Protestant Church of Algeria were shut down after authorities allege the structures didn’t meet certain building safety codes.

Mohamed Aissa, Algeria’s ministry of religious affairs, claims the churches were closed because they “did not meet the standards required of a place of worship.” [ Source: CBN News (Read More…) ]

‘More Than One-Third of Humanity Will Never Hear About Jesus’: Day to Reach the Unreached Set for May 20

‘More Than One-Third of Humanity Will Never Hear About Jesus’: Day to Reach the Unreached Set for May 20

(Worthy News) – May 20 marks Pentecost Sunday, the anniversary of when the Holy Spirit fell upon and empowered Christ’s disciples to take His Good News to the whole world. But this year, Pentecost Sunday will also be known as the International Day of the Unreached.

It’s needed because so many billions of people aren’t getting the chance to learn about the Good News. According to Wayne Pederson of the Alliance for the Unreached, more than a third of humanity will likely never hear a message about Jesus…unless the Church does something about it.

“Out of the seven billion people on planet Earth, I think it’s 3.2 billion people, which is about 40 percent of the population, have no opportunity to hear the gospel where they live, in their location,” Pederson told CBN News. [ Source: CBN News (Read More…) ]

Iran’s navy commander threatens to sink US ships

(Worthy News) – A top Iranian general has threatened to sink the United States Navy’s ships, warning that the US would find itself in a “catastrophic situation” amid an ongoing war of words between the countries over the possibility President Donald Trump’s could exit a landmark nuclear deal.

“The actual information that the Americans have about us is much less than what they think they have. When will they figure this out? When it is too late,” the Revolutionary Guard Corps’s navy commander, Admiral Ali Fadavim, told Iranian television on Saturday.

“They will definitely figure it out when their ships are sunk, or when they find themselves in a catastrophic situation,” Fadavi threatened in an interview with IRINN TV, according to a translation by the Middle East Media Research Institute. [ Source: Times of Israel (Read More…) ]

Trump v. Hawaii: the Supreme Court might make Trump’s travel ban permanent

Trump v. Hawaii: the Supreme Court might make Trump’s travel ban permanent

(Worthy News) – On Wednesday, the Supreme Court will take up the travel ban again.

But in the year since the Court first examined the Trump administration’s efforts to bar people from certain countries, most of them majority-Muslim, from entering the US, the ban and the landscape both look very different.

We’re now on the third version of Trump’s travel ban — the first was scuttled after it got thwarted by lower courts, and the second, allowed to go partially into effect by the Supreme Court last year, expired in September. The current version, which prevents some (or all) immigrants, refugees, and visa holders from Iran, Libya, North Korea, Somalia, Syria, Venezuela, and Yemen from entering the US, is designed to be permanent. The travel ban has been in effect in full since early December. [ Source: VOX (Read More…) ]
