Israel working hard, losing everything
by Dana G Smith
Every wonder why Israel was called "Gods chosen people"? No!
Well, from watching this tiny state of a little more than five
million jews in it, one would not think they are chosen of
anyone. There has never been a people that are more hated than
the Jews. There has never been a people who have been the brunt
of mass killing as the Jews. Now since 1948, they have had their
own land. But Israel is not even a member of the United Nations.
The Palestinian Authority who have been negotiating with Israel
says in its charter that they "don't even recognize Israel's
right to exist".
The prophet Zechariah said of Israel in chapter two and verse
eight:" For thus saith the LORD of hosts; After the glory hath
he sent me unto the nations which spoiled you: for he that
toucheth you toucheth the apple of his eye." It is good to note
this scripture, for if I were Jewish, It would be of comfort to
me. Thinking of myself as the "apple of Gods eye" would help me
to put up with the hatred the nations throw at me. The people
leading the charge against the nation of Israel are the Arabs.
The hatred goes back to biblical times and has not eased one
bit. Israel first became a nation in the 14th century b.c.
approximately two thousand years before Islam. From 1272 b.c.
the jews have had dominion over the land God gave to them for
1,000 years with a continuous presence in the land for 22 years.
These facts are according to a history lesson given by Zola
Levitt in His Levitt letter.
Moreover, we know King David founded the city of Jerusalem and
that Mohammed never came there. Yet in the midst of this modern
day hatred of Israel, the arabs and palestinians cry foul over
Jerusalem and the middle east. This hatred is seen even in the
Newly formed Iraqi constitution which reads "Any individual with
another nationality (except for Israel) may obtain Iraqi
nationality after a period of residency inside the borders of
Iraq of not less than ten years for an Arab or twenty years for
any other nationality". Now we have heard the Bush
administration congratulate itself on the great democratic
strides forward in Iraq. Really? From this constitution, it is
obviously biased against the Jewish state of Israel. Not that
any Jew would want to come to Iraq. After all did not Abraham
leave Ur of the Chaldees, a place in Iraq for the land God
promised Him? In his article "A modest proposal" by Burt
Prelutsky, www.chronwatch.com, he gives a reasons muslims hate
us in the USA. He relates "The muslims don't hate us because
we're in Iraq, but because we exist. The hate us because we're
everything they are not-advanced technologically, democratic,
powerful, and Judeo-Christian. We don't subjugate our women, we
don't behead our enemies, and our young men don't blow
themselves up in the hope of spending eternity in a celestial
brothel. They despise our music, our movies, our tatoos and body
piercing, our TV shows, and the way we dress." If they hate the
USA for these things, how much more do they hate Israel?
I say Many times more and so does history. Israel beat back
attacks by nations of Arabs who wanted to destroy them. They
took a parched desert and made it bloom. Their country is
democratic and allows arabs to live there and become part of the
political process. According to a report by Maoz Israel, the
Israelis in regard to Gaza had created a paradise on earth in
place of the empty land that was there. The Israelis built dream
homes, beautiful manicured lawns, superb education and religious
facilities. They erected 1000 acres of hot houses exporting
spices, flowers, and vegetables and contributing many millions
of dollars to the Israeli economy.
As well, these Israelis employed 4000 Gazan arabs to work in
them. Now the Jews are gone, the religious facilities are
destroyed, as well as the hot houses. In place of the growing
population of prosperous Jews and Arabs, there is a terroist
organization that brings hatred and violence. They have
destroyed the buildings, synagogues, and hot houses the jews
left. Instead they have brought jealousy and a morbid hatred for
the Jews who live in their own democratic nation. In the midst
of the 14th century Mohammedistic hatred and Jihad we find
bloodshed and turmoil. This is the same kind that we have today
with the modern muslims who hold to this century old hatred and
way of life.
In conclusion, the muslims of America and around the world are
always silent except for the times they cry foul about countries
and nations focusing on the Muslim. They cry about their rights
being violated, they cry about being picked out at airports
because their Muslim. They seem to never cry about the blood
shed that the Muslim terroist groups bring about. You don't hear
them screaming for "Bin Ladens head". But listen to them scream
foul when Israel puts up a fence to protect itself and its women
and children from blood thirsty 14th century Jihadists who hate
anyone who isn't like themselves, especially Jews.
Like it or not God will not allow the Jews to be destroyed. When
speaking of Israel's enemies, Zechariah penned these verses. If
anyone will have the last Word, it is the Lord. He will not
forsake Israel, but save her. He will save her with the "right
arm of His righteousness". He will dwell in the midst of Her,
and many will join Him on that day. Those nations of people who
know the Messiach, Yessuah as their Lord.
Zechariah 2:9 For, behold, I will shake mine hand upon them, and
they shall be a spoil to their servants: and ye shall know that
the LORD of Hosts hath sent me.
10 Sing and rejoice, O daughter of Zion: for, lo, I come, and I
will dwell in the midst of thee, saith the LORD.
11 And many nations shall be joined to the LORD in that day, and
shall be my people: and I will dwell in the midst of thee, and
thou shalt know that the LORD of hosts hath sent me unto thee.
12 And the LORD shall inherit Judah his portion in the holy
land, and shall choose Jerusalem again.
13 Be silent, O all flesh, before the LORD: for he is raised up
out of his holy habitation.
