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,, 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.
