they fled in terror.
PS 48:6 Trembling seized them there,
pain like that of a woman in labor.

shattered by an east wind.

view her citadels,
that you may tell of them to the next generation.
PS 48:14 For this God is our God for ever and ever;
he will be our guide even to the end.

Well ya the british are very unstable.
Heres something that could add to that theory
Brit = Hebrew for "covenant" and Ish = Hebrew for man
British = man of the covenant.
However, something significant might occur in the holy land around 2012, which would give the british and the anglo-american empire a political foothold in the holyland; perhaps by creating their much beloved palestinian state.
In what were the Israelis dropping bombs so fast?
Beirut & WASHINGTON DC - Israel has asked the Bush administration to speed delivery of short-range antipersonnel rockets armed with cluster munitions, which it could use to strike Hezbollah missile sites in Lebanon, two American officials said Thursday.
The United States had approved the sale of M-26’s to Israel some time ago, but the weapons had not yet been delivered when the crisis in Lebanon erupted. If the shipment is approved, Israel may be told that it must be especially careful about firing the rockets into populated areas, the senior official said.
Israel has long told American officials that it wanted M-26 rockets for use against conventional armies in case Israel was invaded, one of the American officials said. But after being pressed in recent days on what they intended to use the weapons for, Israeli officials disclosed that they planned to use them against rocket sites in Lebanon. It was this prospect that raised the intense concerns over civilian casualties.
During much of the 1980’s, the United States maintained a moratorium on selling cluster munitions to Israel, following disclosures that civilians in Lebanon had been killed with the weapons during the 1982 Israeli invasion. But the moratorium was lifted late in the Reagan administration, and since then, the United States has sold Israel some types of cluster munitions, the senior official said.
Israel invaded Lebanon a month ago following the abduction of 2 of its soldiers by Hezbollah. Israel's response was described as " disproportionate", since it has destroyed all the Lebanese infrastructure and complete towns and villages . Over 1100 Lebanese civilians mostly women and children have been killed so far and over 3500 wounded. One quarter of the Lebanese have been displaced and have become refugees in their own land.
Israel has given America a very bad name in its misuse of American supplied weapons. Many people in Lebanon and the rest of the region blame the US for the death of the civilians. Any attempt to send these cluster bombs to Israel will be considered as a further proof of America's involvement in the war on Lebanon.
US rushes more bombs to Israel
Paul McGeough, Beirut and Ed O'loughlin, Tyre
July 23, 2006
THE US is rushing a delivery of precision-guided bombs to Israel, in a move likely to anger Arab governments and a sign there will be no early end to Israel's bombardment of Lebanon.
The shipment comes as US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice prepares to visit Israel, which is massing troops on its border with Lebanon after the 11-day bombardment that has failed to stem waves of deadly Hezbollah missiles landing on its territory.
I only wish they would be allowed to deal with an enemy the way other nations are allowed - that is, carpet bomb.
More and more land is being given up to the palestinians - city states are popping up all around Israel that also serve as hotbeds for terrorist activity (Sheckem/Nablus for instance).
Shechem was a Canaanite city mentioned in the Amarna letters, and is mentioned in the Hebrew Bible as an Israelite city of the tribe of Manasseh and the first capital of the Kingdom of Israel. Traditionally, it has been associated with the site of Tell Balatah in Balata al-Balad in the West Bank, though it may have been located on nearby Mount Gerizim.
