Israeli forces placed the Palestinian West Bank town of Tulkarm under blockade Thursday night, Dec. 24, after Palestinian terrorists murdered Rabbi Meir Avshalom Chai, 45, father of seven, in a drive-by attack on his car close to his home in Shavei Shomron. He died of a head wound shortly after his car was hit by 10 bullets. The Fatah suicide wing, al Aqsa Brigades, claimed responsibility for the attack.
A senior IDF officer told DEBKAfile that the cooperative ties Palestinian, American and Israeli security forces and intelligence arms have developed over the past year now face their first critical test on the ground. They depend on Palestinian units in Tulkarm being willing and able to capture Rabbi Chai's murderers and hand them over to Israel. If they fail this test, Israel forces will have to go in and take up the pursuit.

US Court: Christian woman forced to turn over her daughter to former lesbian partner - CCFON.org - Christian Concern For Our Nation

A former lesbian, who subsequently became Christian and completely renounced the homosexual lifestyle, is forced by US Court to give up custody of her 7-year-old biological daughter and told by the police she could face parental abduction charges.


Lisa Miller, a former lesbian who subsequently became a Christian, had given birth to her daughter Isabella through artificial insemination in 2002 while still living in a civil union with Janet Jenkins in Vermont, US, but left Jenkins and the lesbian lifestyle about a year later. Ms Jenkins, who has no biological or legal relationship with Isabella, later brought a legal action in a Vermont Court pursuing custody of Ms Miller’s daughter, who is currently living with her mother in Virginia, US.


Ms Jenkins maintains the Vermont homosexual civil union guarantees her parental rights and states she believes it is not good for a child to be raised in a Christian atmosphere.
