On 29th November 2012, Australia and New Zealand, together with 136 other states, voted to adopt a UN General Assembly resolution granting "Palestine" recognized observer status in the UN as a non-member state. This and other UN resolutions reflect the widely-held opinion that Israel's annexation of East Jerusalem, its continued "occupation" of the "Occupied Palestinian Territories", and the Jewish settlements in "East Jerusalem" and the West Bank, are illegal under international law. In the eyes of many states, Israel's settlement policies are illegal and impeding the peace process.Andrew Tucker

But is this really so? And does international law really require a two-state solution based on the 1967 lines? ANDREW TUCKER presents an analysis of the history of Jerusalem and the West Bank, the principles of international law, and the U.N. system which throws serious doubts on many common perceptions about international law and the claims being made concerning Israel/Palestine. He will present arguments which prove that such claims infringe the existing rights of the Jewish people, undermine Israel's security, which in turn undermines the rights and prosperity of both Jews and Arabs, and threatens the status of Jerusalem as a city where the protection of Muslim, Jewish and Christian holy places is guaranteed. 

ANDREW TUCKER was born and raised in Australia. He studied law at Melbourne and Oxford Universities, and practised as an attorney in Australia, UK and Netherlands for 20 years in the fields of international and EU law. Since 2004 Andrew has been Executive Director of Christians for Israel International, and Legal Counsel to the European Coalition for Israel (a Brussels-based foundation dedicated to defending Israel's rights in the EU and UN institutions). Andrew is married to Marianne and they have four children. They live in Amersfoort, The Netherlands.

Enoch Lavender - Israel's National Day of Repentance

In this message, Ps. Enoch Lavender examines the holiest day on the Jewish / Biblical calendar - the Day of Atonement. In ancient times, this was the day when the High Priest would enter in through the veil into the Holy of Holies and intercede on behalf of the nation of Israel. It is a time when in the Jewish understanding, the fate of the nation is in the balance before God - and this is therefore a time when young and old will fast, pray and humble themselves before God. 

Prophetically, the Day of Atonement foreshadows the national restoration of Israel to God after a time of great trial. This message introduces one to the ancient and modern keeping of this holy day, as well as explores the link between Israel's Yom Kippur war in 1973 and a future time of testing that will come upon the nation.

Ps. Enoch has a B.A. from Harvest Bible College and is involved with a range of ministries including Ebenezer Operation Exodus, and Teach All Nations (Dr. Kameel Majdali) where he serves on the board. Enoch is also a key part of the Shalom Israel team.
