TERRITORIAL SPIRITS have influenced human politics for millennia. The princes of Persia and Greece are explicitly mentioned in theBook of Daniel, but it was understood in the ancient Near East that every city-state or tribal territory had its patron god.
THE SITUATION became a lot more tense in the shadow of Mount Hermon over the weekend. An Israeli F-16 was shot down by anti-aircraft fire Saturday after striking Iranian targets deep inside Syria.
ONE OF the most important aspects of the long spiritual war is blood. The Watchers tried to corrupt human bloodlines by physically mixing it with their own. Today, humanity seems driven to transform what it means to be human through science.
