Last week, Israel marked their Holocaust Remembrance Day, a time when they remember 6 million Jews that were killed by the Nazi regime.  From that we fast-forward to October 7th, 2023, when Hamas, the terrorist group, unleashed a very brutal and barbaric attack against Israel.  

Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has vowed to continue the Rafah operation in Gaza while today, Israel celebrates its independence as 76 years ago, Israel became a nation.

Returning to Crosstalk to discuss the Israeli war and their independence was Dr. Richard Schmidt.  Dr.  Schmidt is pastor of Union Grove Baptist Church and founder of Prophecy Focus Ministries.  He is the speaker on the weekly TV program, Prophecy Focus and the radio broadcast, Prophecy Unfolding.  He spent 32 years in law enforcement including that of Acting Sheriff of Milwaukee County until his retirement.  He has authored several books including: Are You Going to a Better Place?, Daniel’s Gap Paul’s Mystery, Tribulation to Triumph: The Olivet DiscourseGlobalism: The Great World Consumption and Artificial Intelligence, Transhumanism and the De-evolution of Democracy.

This edition of Crosstalk covered a lot of ground as Jim and Dr. Schmidt discussed the following:

  • The latest news concerning Israel’s attack on Rafah.  The U.S. has warned against this, communicating that there could be ramifications for the relationship between the nations if this occurs.  
  • What’s happening with the arms shipments between the U.S. and Israel? 
  • What does the Bible say about antisemitism in these last days?  Will Israel be wiped off the face of the earth?  
  • What’s the latest on the college/university, pro-Hamas/pro-Palestinian protests?
  • Audio from Tarik Ata, an Imam from California, who was pushing for the Islamic faith and the infliction of pain as he gave his opinion on the Israel/Hamas war.   

In spite of all this, Israel continues to show their national resilience, even while under constant threat.  Hear more, as well as the prophetic ramifications, when you review this edition of Crosstalk.
