Apocalypse NOW, in PRIME TIME!

CNN's Paula Zahn is covering the most hard-hitting news story of the day from a spiritual perspective. She is asking the hard-hitting question of the hour, the one that has us all on the edge of our seats: IS IT THE END?

I kid you not, Paula Zahn is currently doing a news story-- A NEWS STORY-- on the apocalypse.

The Apocalypse.

The Apocalypse is making prime time news.

America is in Iraq for the second time in a decade. North Korea is testing their arsenal. Russia is selling F-16 bombers to Venezuela. Massive earthquakes and natural disasters are culminating in huge amounts of global warming (just ask Al Gore) and Africa is still starving to death. But none of this really matters. What tells CNN that the Apocalypse is breaking news?

Israel decides to fight back.

Hey, Evangelicals and all you Christians out there who think you're the new Israel: If anything proves your replacement theology wrong, it's this story. Because even after all your years of wailing and gnashing of teeth, it's still the Jews who get Jesus on prime time.


Anyone with a satellite dish or hot cable in Israel right now is looking at their TV cross-eyed, shaking their head, and muttering, "Jesus Christ, those crazy goys."

Seriously, let's think about this for a moment:

After years of the Oslo-mindset, Israel decides to fight back. She wages a brilliantly-executed PR war, managing to keep her battle plans secret while appearing to appease the world body with strong hyperbole. In other words, Israel is using her enemy's doublespeak against them-- and she's doing a brilliant job of it. In the meantime, Israel's increasing the Lebanon offensive and taunting Syria and Iran into action. All of a sudden, the world is seeing an Israel with balls.

Jews with balls? It *must* be the end of days!!!

I love it. LOVE IT!
