As I prepare to record this Sunday’s YouTube “prophecy in the news” update for Issachar Forum, I am struck by the great divide between news reports from Israel and the Western media. This great Dry Bones cartoon illustrates my point. Iran is threatening Israel, the US, and the West in general at every turn. They are building nukes, ICBMs and promising to close the strategic Strait of Hormuz. Our response? We tell Israel to cool their jets. The world is on fire and we are yanking on the reins of our greatest friend and Middle East ally. The Western “boat” really is sinking in fear and we cry out to Israel: “Don’t rock the boat!”
Another example was in today’s news coverage. I read several stories on the Jerusalem Post site detailing the murder of a US Colonel and a Major in Afghanistan by Taliban protesting the accidental burning of a Koran this week. Then I went over to the Fox News Live site for more info and only found a story with this headline: 2 NATO troops killed at ministry, Afghan officials say. The article only identifies them as “two high-ranking US military advisers”. Couldn’t somebody at Fox read the Jerusalem Post before writing their report? I warn you. If you only read American news sources, you will be ignorant of what is really happening in the world.
I am reminded of the famous quote by Mark Twain:
If you don’t read the newspaper, you’re uninformed.
If you read the newspaper, you’re mis-informed.
Then she said to the king: It was a true report which I heard in my own land about your words and your wisdom. 1 Kings 10:6
Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things. Philippians 4:8
