Victor Marx of “All Things Possible Ministries” is a missionary and child advocate who helps to free children from dangerous situations all over the world.
The former U.S. Marine and trained martial arts seventh-degree black belt takes teams of missionaries and aide workers on what he calls “high-risk missions” trips, going to places where no one else wants to go but where the need is great.
When he received a phone call about a baby boy in need of help, he geared up for any and every threat that would prevent him from getting that innocent child out of harm’s way.
“K-9.Check. Diapers. Check. Guns. Check. Body Armor. Check,” reads an excerpt from a recent entry on his blog.<!–more–>
Dave Eubank says he knew the odds were against him.
“ISIS fire was intense as we approached the huddled group of three survivors,” Eubank recalled in an Instagram post.
On June 1, Eubank, an ex-U.S. Army Special Forces soldier who runs a Christian humanitarian organization called Free Burma Rangers, got a call from an Iraqi unit that was fighting ISIS on the frontlines west of Mosul, Iraq.
“They said civilians coming, a lot (of them) shot,” Eubank told CNN.
He and members of the Free Burma Rangers are in Iraq helping civilians flee from ISIS-held areas.
The team jumped into action after they got the call…. read more

Since 9/11, I have been warning America about the dangers of the teachings of Islam. Followers of Islam are taught very troubling passages that encourage them to murder and maim those they refer to infidels, or nonbelievers. With the internet and social media, radicalization is only increasing—and the dangers are continuing to increase. Many times, sadly, it is the young who are pulled into these teachings that encourage murder and rape in the name of the god of Islam.
We saw the results again Saturday night in London with 7 killed and more than 48 wounded by Muslim men who said this was for Allah. That is three Islamic terror attacks in the country in less than three months. The threat of Islam is real. The threat of Islam is serious. The threat of Islam is dangerous. There is cause for concern, despite what some may say.
We need to pray that God would give our President, our Congress, and our Senate wisdom—and the guts to do what is right for our nation, and not what’s politically correct. My prayer is that the United States—and the UK—will wake up before it’s too late. [full source]
… But I guarantee you that beautiful Saffie Rose will evaporate from the memories of those most loudly proclaiming “Never forget” faster than a dewdrop in the desert.
Look no further for proof of the West’s incurable terror attack amnesia than the reaction to the Manchester massacre. Reporters, politicians and pundits expressed shock at the brutality of Muslim murderers targeting children and young people.
Labour Party leader Yvette Cooper posited on BBC Live that it was a “first.” “The architects of terror have hit a new low,” a Liverpool newspaper editorialized. U.K. columnist Rosie Millard described the bloody bombing as an “attack unique in its premeditated targeting of the young.”

The Rev. Franklin Graham warned jihadists that the flames of hell, rather than 70 virgins, await them in the afterlife, and also described Islam as a “threat to our very life,” following Monday’s bombing in Manchester, England, which killed 22 people.
“Islam targets the weak. The Islamic State has claimed responsibility for the horrific carnage of Monday night’s bombing in Manchester, England, targeting children, teens, and their parents who were attending a concert. They’re proud of this despicable and cowardly act,” Graham wrote in a Facebook message on Monday.
BBC News noted that the U.K. has raised its terror threat level to “critical” following the suicide attack at the end of U.S. singer Ariana Grande’s concert, which Islamic radicals have taken responsibility for…. read more
Question: Why did the Saudis treat President Trump so graciously?
Answer: They’re scared. Even though the Saudis are as responsible as any party for radicalizing Sunni Islam, they did so believing it would make them safe. It was an attempt to buy the extremists off, thinking they would never bite the hand that fed them. In addition, the royal family is divided – with some more extreme than others. They realize two things: Iran represents an existential threat to the kingdom, and so does the ISIS brand of terrorism. The only force on earth than can help save the kingdom is long-time ally America. In addition, the Arab and Muslim world respects strength, which they see in President Trump. There’s one more thing: In the past, the Saudis have sought to buy favor with U.S. presidents with millions of dollars in endowments after they left office. These include Jimmy Carter, George H.W. Bush, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush and Barack Obama. They are wise enough to know Trump, a billionaire, cannot be bought off this way.
Question: Is there really potential for the Saudis to reform and join the fight against ISIS, al-Qaida, Hamas, Iran and Hezbollah?…. read more
