A ceasefire between Israel and Hamas is not the only truce needed to restore peace for the Jewish state.  There are at least two others.

I'll bet you didn't know that ISIS was a Zionist conspiracy created to discredit Islam.  In fact, I'll bet even ISIS didn't know it.

Turkey took another step away from democracy and closer to becoming an extremist Islamist state and patron of terrorists this week when Recep Tayyip Erdogan became the country's first elected president.
