David Gilbert Reporting from Israel - Israel Must Win.... for World Peace

As the Lord instructed us in Psalm 122:6, we are to "Pray for the peace of Jerusalem."

And, Rohn Price on "The Blessings Page" answers our natural question, "How are we to pray for the peace of Jerusalem?.

But, above all, as we pray and stand with Israel in its hour of need, let us place our ultimate trust in the Lord that He speedily deliver Israel from evil.

Stand with Us

Things here are very tense, there's an open war going on in northern indication (some of you may have heard me tell this story on the air)..... Out of the blue, I got a call from an ex-girlfriend (Miriam Swerdloff for those who know her) near the end of last week. She wants to know how this war is being portrayed in America, afraid that her parents might be concerned for her welfare. In the middle of the conversation, she mentions nonchalantly, that a katyusha rocket fired by Hezbullah made a direct hit on her apartment in Tzfat, totally gutting it. She was out at the time, but seemed remarkably relaxed about the whole thing, feeling that this is a war that Israel will ultimately win.

Meanwhile, Gregg Roman is also defiant. Gregg is a graduate of American University who organized my speech there a couple of years ago. He called me from Haifa where he and 150 other Americans are studying Hebrew. He saw the rocket that hit the train depot in Haifa this morning, killing eight people. He called later to say that he and the other students are being
evacuated to Jerusalem.

This is nothing short of a war of good against evil, pitting those who love life against those who pursue destruction and covet death. Make no mistake, Israel must fight and win this war, not just for herself, but for the entire world.

David Gilbert is a Middle East Correspondent for CBS, based in Jerusalem. He moved to Israel in the summer of 2000, just as the Camp David peace talks were falling apart. Gilbert has been covering the unfolding conflict for the past four+ years and has interviewed most of the leading players.
