"At present it appears the war has made peace more remote... however the war contained within it a seed which may yet bud into peace."
After six days' fighting Israel had seized control of the Gaza Strip and Sinai Peninsula from Egypt, the Golan Heights from Syria, and East Jerusalem and the West Bank from Jordan.
Although victorious, the mantle of governing the West Bank brought with it unexpected challenges.
At the heart of the Israeli effort were men such as Moshe Dayan and Eytan Israeli, and despite the circumstances relations were surprisingly cordial to begin with.
Dayan in particular sought to minimise the appearance of occupation, and with great effort from both sides a working relationship was established.
However, with time peace became a distant dream and new problems emerged: censored textbooks led to strikes, caches of arms were discovered, and terrorism grew in the region.
Originally published just two years after the Six-Day War, Shabtai Teveth tells ...

My name is Max Campbell and I do not have a superpower.
I don't need one. I have a genius level IQ, nerves of steel, and great hair. I've been trained to be a healer and a killer by some of the most elite soldiers in the world, and I excel at the task. No tricks. No cheat codes. Just me. Pure, unaltered, awesome me. Would it be cool to be able to walk through walls or fly faster than a fart?

Something is coming.
Seama Beltomé can feel it. He can see it.
The four nations of Asteranor are already at war or soon will be. But what's coming is worse than that.
Seama is reading Haslem's Song of Ages. Or whatever's left of it. An obscure history of mankind, it announced its presence by bursting into flames in the Escartine Library. The few pages rescued reveal a tantalising glimpse of the Earth's deep past, a revelation of Ages and deeds unknown.
And they carry a dark warning:
what is forgotten cannot cease to have been,
a crime against existence cannot be undone,
and the banished will seek to return.
Seama has been summoned because the time has come.
Something more dangerous than death, an ancient evil, stands just beyond the gates of the world.
It waits only on a passage opened, a door unlocked.
Seama can hear the rattle of ...
It's been a few months since the tragic events that unfolded in the town of Rosegrant and life has seemed to be finding a sense of calm again. At least that's what the officials of the town would like to portray to the outside world. The residents of Rosegrant know better. Something evil is simmering all around them. Something that cannot be ignored.
James C. Allenton is a horror writer who had been at the top of his game. Lately however, he'd been struggling with ideas. That is until he met Allie Woodward, one of his younger sisters new friends.

So he can experience the things he's heard about.

This book trains the next generation of scientists representing different disciplines to leverage the data generated during routine patient care. It formulates a more complete lexicon of evidence-based recommendations and support shared, ethical decision making by doctors with their patients.
Diagnostic and therapeutic technologies continue to evolve rapidly, and both individual practitioners and clinical teams face increasingly complex ethical decisions. Unfortunately, the current state of medical knowledge does not provide the guidance to make the majority of clinical decisions on the basis of evidence.
The present research infrastructure is inefficient and frequently produces unreliable results that cannot be replicated. Even randomized controlled trials (RCTs), the traditional gold standards of the research reliability hierarchy, are not without limitations. They can be costly, labor intensive, and slow, and can return results that are seldom generalizable to every patient ...

Raphael is book one in the series "Destiny"
History tells us that man fears that which he does not understand, especially if it deals with power. I am a man who can't control my fate. I am the only man who can save the people of the world. Some call me an angel, as in "Raphael" (The Archangel of Healing). Some call me a freak of nature -- a mutant. Some just call me an enigma, for I have the power to heal with my touch. My destiny to heal takes me on a journey, a calling that will seal my fate and that of the world. That journey is filled with the lives my healing power has touched, new friendships I have made, and the true love I find on my journey. I have no control over fate, but Lexie is the destiny I chose, and my destiny will be threatened by our own government and a mad man named Rommel, whose mission in life is to control my power and destroy the world as we know it.
My sharing of these words on a written page expresses my love that will never age and as long as I breathe, ...
You can live for many years and sit through many sermons without ever really coming to an in-depth understanding of the parables of Jesus. If you want to serve and obey Jesus, you should endeavour to understand the fundamentals of these teachings of Jesus.
In this, his twenty-seventh book, Matthew Robert Payne unpacks the parables for today and shows how you can live the life that Jesus promoted when he was on earth. This is the updated and expanded edition of the book he originally published in 2011.
Two reviewers of his original book said this:
"With heart-challenging explanations of the parables of Jesus, Matthew Robert Payne shares pieces of his life in the framework of the fifty-four parables of Jesus covered in The Parables of Jesus made Simple. This collection of essays reads like a scholarly, yet genuine conversation with a good friend and is written with honesty, transparency, and vigor. Matthew invites you to read the lessons of Christ, often times pleading with the ...
This book examines the exercise of power in the Stalinist music world as well as the ways in which composers and ordinary people responded to it. It presents a comparative inquiry into the relationship between music and politics in the German Democratic Republic and Poland from the aftermath of World War II through Stalin's death in 1953, concluding with the slow process of de-Stalinization in the mid-to late-1950s. The author explores how the Communist parties in both countries expressed their attitudes to music of all kinds, and how composers, performers, and audiences cooperated with, resisted, and negotiated these suggestions and demands. Based on a deep analysis of the archival and contemporary published sources on state, party, and professional organizations concerned with musical life, Tompkins argues that music, as a significant part of cultural production in these countries, played a key role in instituting and maintaining the regimes of East Central Europe. As part of the ...

Speaking to saints from Heaven might be rare, but in these times, more and more people are starting to experience it. In Biblical times, Jesus had a conversation with Moses and Elijah on the Mount of Transfiguration that was recorded in Matthew 17:1-9. Then, in Matthew 27:50- 53, as Jesus died and the temple veil was torn, scripture records in verse 52: "... and the graves were opened and many bodies of the saints who had fallen asleep were raised and verse 53: "... And coming out of the graves after His resurrection, they went into the holy city and appeared to many... "
We are living in times where known prophets are speaking of encounters they have had with departed saints. For many years, Matthew has been having visitations and in recent times, Jesus commissioned him to interview 19 saints that the Holy Spirit brought to earth. These saints, part of the Great Cloud of Witnesses mentioned in Hebrews 12:1, answered a standard 10 questions each, questions such as:

The Mediterranean diet focuses on healthy eating and eating food that is very popular in the Mediterranean climate. It also serves to lose weight and normalize the digestive processes in the body. The Mediterranean diet should not be confused with the usual Mediterranean cuisine. The main difference between these two types of meal plans is that the first one contains a large number of low-fat food, which is easier and faster to cook. The main ingredients that are used in this type of diet are vegetables and fruits. As regards fats, olive oil is preferably recommended. However, this is not the whole list of allowed products. Fish, seafood, poultry, greens, whole grain bread, cereals, pasta, beans, nuts, yogurts and low-fat cheeses such as feta or mozzarella are widely used during the diet, too. The Mediterranean meal plan is not very strict, so sometimes you can sip a glass of dry wine for dinner. Nevertheless, roasted and fatty food, red or smoke meat, sweets, as well as white bread ...
