Hate Crime in Arab Village:  A racially motivated attack occurred in Abu Ghosh, an Arab village outside Jerusalem early Tuesday morning.  Twenty-eight cars were vandalized, and the words “Arabs Out” were spray painted on walls throughout the town.  This is the latest in a string of “price tag” acts of vandalism, in which extreme right Jewish men vandalize the property of Israeli and Palestinian Arabs.  These sorts of attacks are only making the tensions between the two people groups worse, and are unacceptable.  Please pray that those responsible will be held to the highest standard of the law, and for an immediate stop to these attacks.  Please also pray that we will find our peace in Yeshua, who is our only hope for peace with one another.  For more, see Price Tag

Attack on Israeli Bus Outside Bethlehem:  Three Molotov cocktails were thrown at an Israeli bus near Bethlehem.  The IDF also found an explosive nearby and neutralized it.  Thankfully, no one was injured, but this is a troubling sign of rising tensions between Israelis and Palestinians once again.  Please continue to pray for God’s protection over Israel in all areas.  For more, see Attack Near Bethlehem

Please continue to pray for the Body of Messiah in Israel as the days of tribulation grow closer; please pray we will be a great source of blessing to all Israel and that through our witness, many in Israel will come to know their Messiah.  Please pray for strength, courage, gentleness, and boldness in our witness to our neighbors who do not yet know Yeshua. 

Thank you for praying and standing with Israel! Have a blessed week…
