In Our Hands - The Battle for Jerusalem


In 1967, the fledgling CBN ministry broke ground on a new studio in Portsmouth, Virginia. That same day, CBN founder Pat Robertson learned that Israel was at war with its Arab neighbors, a war that would become known as the Six-Day War. Robertson says he knew at that moment that CBN was linked to Israel in a prophetic way.

As we look at the miracle of the 1967 Six-Day War, it is also important to look at the cost. For the young country, it was an epic turning point. But for many people, this victory cost them everything.

Many repeat the familiar narrative that Israel is the main obstacle to a two-state, peaceful solution. But author David Brog says the problem with that narrative is that it's just not true. He debunks this and other myths about the Jewish state in his new book, Reclaiming Israel's History: Roots, Rights, and the Struggle for Peace.
