A holy war against Israel

While millions of families have been celebrating Passover, Easter, and Ramadan, Israel yet again found itself a victim of targeted terrorist attacks. 

In Jerusalem, Palestinian extremist groups opted for violence on the Temple Mount, turning a holy place for millions of people into a place of hatred, terrorism, and bloodshed. Thousands of Muslims who only wanted to pray for peace during Ramadan were put in danger just to provoke Israeli security forces into responding and acting swiftly to restore peace. 

As usual with the biased media, those policing efforts were the only images the world saw on every news outlet. Israel was quickly condemned as the one enacting violence in order to stop Muslims from praying in Al-Aqsa Mosque on Temple Mount. 

Things escalated, and Israel once again found itself the target of bloody terrorist attacks. During this time, three people were murdered, and seven others were injured. Israeli security forces prevented dozens of other planned violent attacks every day.

Additionally, Israel was subject to rocket fire from all three fronts: Gaza, Lebanon, and Syria, absorbing over 80 rockets fired at Israeli civilians in both the north and south of Israel over the course of two days. 

While rockets were intercepted, others exploded in densely populated residential areas, such as a house in Sderot, where a family and their 9-month-old baby miraculously survived. 

A summary of Israel’s first days of Passover can only be described as Jihad — Islam’s holy war against Israel. 

There are thousands of Muslims we live and coexist amongst here in Israel who only want peace. They are our allies, neighbors, and friends who seek to build a quiet life for themselves and their families. Yet, there are those who are fully immersed and driven by hatred towards Jews and Israel, as well as America for supporting Israel’s cause and right to exist. 


Ramadan is known to be a very explosive time of year here in Israel, which is why your prayers are always needed during this time. While Ramadan continues, so do the terrorist attacks. 

We pray for God to touch the hearts of Muslims and remove their hatred by substituting it with Yeshua’s love. We also pray for the protection of this nation and against the Jihad that is being waged against Israel, and those who love her will crumble and fall, giving God all the glory.
