The City of Davidsite of ancient Jerusalemis one of the most visited sites in all of Israel and is a virtual map of the Bible: from Hezekiah’s tunnel, to the Pool of Siloam, to the Road of Pilgrimage up to the ancient Temple, to the place some believe may have been the site of King David’s palace. On tonight’s show, Ze’ev Orenstein, Director of International Affairs for the City of David Foundation, brings the Bible to life as he walks us through ancient Jerusalem, showing that Jerusalem has been and always will be the eternal capital of Israel and the Jewish people.

Part 2 of a 2 part series on the Hamas threat. The ongoing Palestinian terror campaign against Israel personified by Hamashas had a horrible human impact, and nowhere more so than in Sderot, a town in southern Israel which has been bombarded with thousands of rockets fired from Gaza over the past two decades. Sderot is the focus of tonight’s episode of “The Watchman” show with Christians United for Israel. I spent a day in Sderot recently and learned that the people there are proud, resilient and upbeat, despite the challenges they’ve faced. In short, they are Israelis.
