The Blindness of the Nations

The blindness of the nations is growing greater today and Israel is in their cross-hairs. Growing antisemitism is infecting the world fed by Arab hatred and total intolerance for Israel’s existence. The month of October has seen two western nations vote in favor of recognizing a “Palestinian” state. Britain voted October 13, 2014 to recognize a Palestine state by an overwhelming 274-to-12 vote, though it is non-binding.  On October 4, 2014, Sweden voted to recognize the state of Palestine, and in November Spain will take a vote. 

This is coming just a couple months after Hamas terrorists started a war with Israel firing some 4,000 rockets and committing countless terrorists acts. Hamas executed at least 20 of its own citizens for protesting the war. Hamas also shot 22-suspected “spies” for Israel the day after three senior Hamas military commanders were killed by an Israeli airstrike - apparently guided by “collaborators.” The state sponsored terrorists setup rocket launchers next to UN sponsored schools, which resulted in Israel firing on the school, bring condemnation from the UN.

Then there is the UN that spends millions of dollars on Gaza development even funding the anti-Semitic school textbooks and pays teachers to teach anti-Semitic propaganda. As of October 16. 2014, just two months after the latest war, Gaza has been pledged 5.3 billion dollars from the nations. The Arab terrorists even received $212 million from the US! A terrorist organization Hamas that controls Gaza and listed on the US terrorists list receives support from the US?  What is going on?

The terrorists continue to do what works and extortion has been very profitable for them. The famous Palestinian terrorist leader Yasir Arafat was on the Forbes 400 list, reportedly possessing $1.3 billion. How in the world can a terrorist become one of the richest men in the world? By diverting public funds that were given by the US, UN, and others! 

As Arab immigration into Europe increases and Europe continues toward liberal Christianity and humanism, Europe will increasingly ignore the facts before them – that Palestine is a terrorist state. Europe continues to endorse the terrorists because emotion is high, the surrounding nations will not let them in their countries  and to punish Israel. How foolish can they be? Britain, that very nation that was so important in bringing about the Jewish nation, has clearly lost its way.

Liberal Christianity’s persecution of Israel continues as more and more of these institutions endorse boycotts of Israel. The Christian Palestinian movement is growing. This movement seeks to support Palestinian terrorists in declaring Israel an “occupier.”  

As the US and other nations continue to ignore the extermination of Christians and Jews in the Middle East, suffering and death only increases. Where is the outrage? Why has the US not demanded freedom of religion as a fundamental right in Islamic nations and not support any nation that does not allow its citizens freedom to practice their religion? 

This battle will continue until the King of Righteousness returns. The nations will continue to rage against God’s people until the Lord returns (Ps. 2).

Why do the nations rage, And the people plot a vain thing? The kings of the earth set themselves, And the rulers take counsel together, Against the LORD and against His Anointed, saying, "Let us break Their bonds in pieces And cast away Their cords from us." He who sits in the heavens shall laugh; The Lord shall hold them in derision. (Psa. 2:1-4 NKJ)

But it is our responsibility to act, to influence policy to stop the injustice and stop the annihilation of Christians and Jews in the Middle-East. It is our responsibility to speak up against taking Jewish land by the governmental bodies of the earth. To point out the terrorism of the Palestinian Liberation Army (PLO), Hamas, Hezbollah, the Brotherhood and others in the region who seek the total destruction of Israel, who play politics in an effort to extort from the foolish nations who seek a peaceful solution.
