Palestinian Declaration of Peace Is a Sham

If you didn't know anything about the Middle East, you might think peace is breaking out all over. Here's how the Associated Press put it: "the Israeli and Palestinian prime ministers made their first public show of reconciliation Tuesday, confirming their commitment to peace as Israeli armored vehicles and trucks loaded with military gear began a withdrawal from Bethlehem."

The problem is that we've seen all of this before. Israel withdraws, gives land, only for her enemies to take the land and make war, not love.

You don't have to be a prophet to know this will happen again. The so-called "truce" announced by Hamas and the other groups, is a sham. They are demanding all of the killers be released from Israeli prisons. What, so they can kill again as others have who have been released at other times in hopes of peace?

The sermons continue about killing the Jews, Christians and Americans. The mosques are being built at a rapid pace in America with Saudi money. The goal is to wipe out Israel, do great harm to America and anyone who doesn't see this is blind, or a fool.
