"Days of Moshiach is end of terrorism " All the world strives to create the perfect peace plan between Muslims, Jews and Christians. BUT until a plan based on the only common factor of deep respect between all parties is acknowledge, there will be no peace. The only common factor is Moses. It will take courage in these modern times to walk away from a Civil Peace Plan, and uphold the Laws of Moses. Reply

"Moshiach Tsidkenu"? Does "Moshiach Tsidkenu" mean "Moshiach Our Righteousness" (as in Yirm 23:5,6) or "Our Righteous Messiah"? Reply
