Defending Israel against the world!

A discussion that includes the Palestinian flotilla attack in late May 2010

First, a little history lesson: If it hadn't been for Elohim's CHOSEN being scattered into the nations (Ezekiel 36:19) who were ultimately referred to as "Jews," YHWH (Yahweh) and His Son Yeshua would have remained the best-kept secret of tiny, little Israel, and the rest of the world would still be writhing in Paganism. One cannot condemn those Jews who are not yet Believers in the Mashiyach because God hasn't opened their spiritual eyes, yet.

They are, however, Torah observant believers in YHWH, which brings them a lot closer to Him than any Christian who ignores God's original Divine Instruction in Righteousness (Torah) in favor of Sun-day worship and paganistic "holidays". Harsh words? Yes, but we are living in the end times as outlined in the Bible, and time is short. Jew-bashing is NOT the way to please God! The Bible tells us that anyone who goes up against them in any way will suffer His wrath:

Genesis 12: - 3 I will make you into a great nation and I will bless you; I will make your name great, and you will be a blessing. I will bless those who bless you, and whoever curses you I will curse; and all peoples on earth will be blessed through you."

Note that YHWH wasn't talking to "the Jews" at that point; but, rather, to the first Patriarch, Abraham who "crossed over" (which is what the term "hebrew" means) both physically and spiritually when he accepted YHWH as his Elohim. There were no "Jews" until the third Patriarch, Ya'akov (Jacob) gave birth to Yehudah (Judah) whose offspring became one of the 12 Tribes of Israel....

Deuteronomy 7:6-8: For you are a people set apart as holy for ADONAI your God. ADONAI your God has chosen you out of all the peoples on the face of the earth to be his own unique treasure. 7 ADONAI didn't set his heart on you or choose you because you numbered more than any other people - on the contrary, you were the fewest of all peoples. 8 Rather, it was because ADONAI loved you, and because he wanted to keep the oath which he had sworn to your ancestors, that ADONAI brought you out with a strong hand and redeemed you from a life of slavery under the hand of Pharoah king of Egypt.

Again, note that YHWH wasn't talking to "the Jews" at that point; but, rather, to the 12 Tribes of Israel....He didn't give the Land to just "the Jews"; He gave it to the descendants of Abraham. That is who the Land belongs to.

Genesis 15: 18 On that day YHWH made a covenant with Abram and said, "To your descendants I give this land, from the river of Egypt to the great river, the Euphrates...."

Why is it that whenever Israel tries to protect itself, "the world" condemns her? When Israel does something good, you never hear about it. But let her try to retaliate against her attackers, and by God, the whole world screams and hollers! Yes, all human beings make mistakes - "the Jews" included. But the fact is, they are being persecuted for trying to protect themselves and their Land from fiendish enemies....

Let's check out a few facts:

Ezekiel 37: 21 Then say to them that Adonai Elohim says: 'I will take the people of Isra'el from among the nations where they have gone and gather them from every side and bring them back to their own land.

No tribe or race in history has remained a distinct people group outside of a national homeland for thousands of years like the Jewish people. No people on earth have ever been repatriated after dozens of generations had forgotten their distinct language. No people, that is, except for Yahweh's people.

As shown on this poster, no matter what anyone says (including people like Condeleeza Rice and Hillary, or any of the U.S. Presidents, all the way back to Jimmy Carter - none of whom know their Bibles), the Land belongs to Yahweh's Chosen People. God gave the Land to Abraham and his descendants (not "the Jews" per se) in Genesis 15:18-19. Abraham bought a large burial site at Hebron (Genesis 23:1-20); David bought the Temple Mount (1 Chronicles 21:25).

And who was the Land ever sold to? NOBODY! Only in recent years has anyone even been able to TAKE it from the Jews forcefully, thanks to "the world" (including the United States which sticks its collective nose into everything) insisting on dividing Israel! But, unless the Muslims are willing to buy the Land (which, as it happens, is not for sale!) then NOBODY has a right to it except for "the Jews"!

Genesis 15: 18 That day ADONAI made a covenant with Avram: "I have given this land to your descendants - from the Vadi of Egypt to the great river, the Euphrates River - 19 the territory of the Keni, the K'nizi, the Kadmoni, 20 the Hitti, the P'rizi, the Refa'im, 21 the Emori, the Kena'ani, the Girgashi and the Y'vusi."

Leviticus 25: 23 "The land is not to be sold in perpetuity, because the land belongs to me -you are only foreigners and temporary residents with me."

Those who know the Scriptures recognize that the entire Bible is about Israel and "the Jews". It is a biblical and therefore historic fact that YHWH gave the Land to Abraham and his descendants. Archaeologists have confirmed Israel's settlement in Biblical times. The Bible teaches us that YHWH (Yahweh) promised the land to the "Jewish people" (used as a generic term to denote all physical descendants of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob) as an "everlasting possession" (Genesis 15:18). He also promised that he would never again remove them from the land (Amos 9:15).

Amos 9: 15 I will plant them on their own soil, no more to be uprooted from their land, which I gave them," says ADONAI your God.

So why is everybody against "the Jews" and Israel? Because satan hates them, period. He has been trying to kill them off since time immemorial because, not only would "the Jews" ultimately be scattered into the nations to reveal their God to the world, but also because YHWH's Savior, Yeshua, would be born through the Tribe of Judah to come and show the world who YHWH is, how to worship Him, and how to be righteous in His Eyes (it's all outlined in the Torah, the first five Books of the Bible) - and then to martyr Himself as our Final SIN Sacrifice on our behalf (as outlined in the Gospels).

Satan has tried to kill YHWH's people in many ways - through the Pogroms, the Spanish Inquisition, and in Hitler's death camps, etc. And they are STILL HERE!

The Bible tells us, however, that one day the entire world will hate His people and go to war with them (Isaiah 60:15; Joel 3:2; Ezekiel 36:8-10; Matthew 24:9). We are almost to that point, judging from the ever-growing anti-Semitism and anti-Israel sentiment around the world!

That sentiment reared its ugly head again in late May 2010 when Israeli soldiers boarded a flotilla carrying pro-Palestinian activists to try to prevent them from sending aid/delivering supplies to the Gaza Strip which is being held by the Palestinian terrorist group, Hamas. A nasty fight ensued when the pro-Palestinian activists refused to surrender and turn their flotilla back, which resulted in the death of several of the activists. But, rather than to recognize that the Israeli soldiers were trying to prevent the terrorists from receiving supplies, the world has once again decided Israel is the "bad guy." Following is part of what the media reported:

Associated Press, Monday, May 31, 2010: JERUSALEM - Israeli commandos rappelled down to an aid flotilla sailing to thwart a Gaza blockade on Monday, clashing with pro-Palestinian activists on the lead ship in a botched raid that left at least nine passengers dead.

Bloodied passengers sprawled on the deck and troops dived into the sea to save themselves amid hand-to-hand fighting that injured dozens of activists and six soldiers. Hundreds of activists were towed from the international waters to Israeli detention centers and hospitals.

International condemnation was swift and harsh as Israel scrambled to explain how what was meant to be a simple takeover of a civilian vessel went so badly awry.....

...Israel's international image had already taken a beating from allegations that it committed war crimes during its 2008-2009 winter war in Gaza, and from widespread global opposition to the blockade. Hamas was also accused of rights violations in that conflict.

THE BOTTOM LINE IS: No matter what "the world" thinks, "the Jews" are YHWH's Chosen and anyone who goes up against them WILL see hellfire! No tribe or race in history has remained a distinct people group outside of a national homeland for thousands of years like the Jewish people. No people on earth have ever been repatriated after dozens of generations had forgotten their distinct language. No people, that is, except for YHWH's people.

Therefore, no matter what anyone says (including President Obama, former Prez. Jimmy Carter, Condeleeza Rice, and Hillary - none of whom know the Scriptures in context), the Land belongs to Yahweh's Chosen People. God gave the Land to Abraham and his descendants in Genesis 15:18-19. Abraham bought a large burial site at Hebron (Genesis 23:1-20); David bought the Temple Mount (1 Chronicles 21:25). And to whom did they ever sell the Land? NOBODY!

Leviticus 25: 23 The land shall not be sold for ever: for the land is mine; for ye are strangers and sojourners with me.

Whether "the world" likes it or not, the Bible tells us that God gave Abraham and his descendants all the land of Israel, spanning to the Euphrates River (which includes Jordan and Syria):

Genesis 15: 18 In the same day the LORD made a covenant with Abram, saying, Unto thy seed have I given this land, from the river of Egypt unto the great river, the river Euphrates: (the territory of) 19 The Kenites, and the Kenizzites, and the Kadmonites, 20 And the Hittites, and the Perizzites, and the Rephaims, 21 And the Amorites, and the Canaanites, and the Girgashites, and the Jebusites.

Genesis 35:10-12 God said to him, "Your name is Jacob, but you will no longer be called Jacob; your name will be Israel." So he named him Israel. And God said to him, "I am God Almighty; be fruitful and increase in number. A nation and a community of nations will come from you, and kings will come from your body. The land I gave to Abraham and Isaac I also give to you, and I will give this land to your descendants after you."

Deuteronomy 34: 4 "This is the land of which I swore to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, 'I will give it to your offspring'"

2 Chronicles 6:5-6 'Since the day that I brought My people from the land of Egypt, I did not choose a city out of all the tribes of Israel in which to build a house that My name might be there, nor did I choose any man for a leader over My people Israel; but I have chosen Jerusalem that My name might be there, and I have chosen David to be over My people Israel.'

Numbers 34: 1 ADONAI told Moshe 2 to give this order to the people of Isra'el: "When you enter the land of Kena'an, it will become your land to pass on as an inheritance, the land of Kena'an as defined by these borders. 3 "Your southern portion will extend from the Tzin Desert close to the border of Edom. The eastern terminus of your southern border is at the end of the Dead Sea. 4 From there your border turns, goes south of the 'Akrabbim Ascent and passes on to Tzin. From there it goes south of Kadesh-Barnea, on to Hatzar-Adar, and on to 'Atzmon.

5 Then the border turns and goes from 'Atzmon to the Vadi of Egypt and along it to the Sea. 6 "Your western border will be the Great Sea. 7 "Your northern border will be as follows: from the Great Sea mark a line to Mount Hor, 8 and from Mount Hor mark a line to the entrance of Hamat. The border goes out to Tz'dad. 9 Then the border goes to Zifron and finally to Hatzar-'Einan; this is your northern border. 10 "For the eastern border mark your line from Hatzar-'Enan to Sh'fam. 11 Then the border goes down from Sh'fam to Rivlah, on the east side of 'Ayin, then down until it hits the slope east of Lake Kinneret. 12 From there it goes down the Yarden River till it flows into the Dead Sea. These will be the borders of your land."

13 Moshe gave this order to the people of Isra'el: "This is the land in which you will receive inheritances by lot, which ADONAI has ordered to give to the nine tribes and the half-tribe. 14 The tribe of the descendants of Re'uven have already received their land for inheritance according to their clans, and so have the descendants of Gad and the half-tribe of M'nasheh. 15 These two-and-a-half tribes have received their inheritance on this side of the Yarden, across from Yericho and eastward, toward the sunrise."

Today's "Palestinians" are actually Arabs who were strangers to the Land; many were kicked out of surrounding countries for various reasons and ended up in Israel - and they were allowed to remain in Israel after God kept His promise and made Israel a nation once more in 1948! Instead of being grateful and "integrating" these "foreigners" to Israel are now demanding the Land be returned to them.....

What strong statements! Here we can see that Israel is suffering BECAUSE they allowed the Arabs and other settlers to remain in THEIR Land back in 1948 when Israel was returned to them! The Jews are being harassed and killed still today because they didn't obey YHWH to force ALL foreigners out of Israel....

So, here's a suggestion: Rather than to bow down to the "Palestinians" by dividing Israel for purposes of "appeasement": Send the Arabs back to where they belong and leave Israel alone! As you can see in the news, Israel and the Jews continue to be attacked from every angle, just as they always have throughout history. Whether you think they're right or wrong, "the Jews" are God's Chosen People, and Israel is God's Land. We MUST be on their side, or suffer dire consequences:

Genesis 12: 3 "I will make you into a great nation and I will bless you; I will make your name great, and you will be a blessing. I will bless those who bless you, and whoever curses you I will curse; and all peoples on earth will be blessed through you."

In this passage He is clearly talking about His people and His land, Israel. Those who go up against God's own will surely lose. This includes the Muslims who are attempting to steal the entire Land of Israel and kill every Jew!

Ezekiel 37: 21 Then say to them that Adonai Elohim says: 'I will take the people of Isra'el from among the nations where they have gone and gather them from every side and bring them back to their own land.

Let's be realistic: "The Jews" are both directly and indirectly responsible for revealing YHWH and His Savior to the world! If it hadn't been for God's CHOSEN (who were ultimately referred to as "Jews") being scattered into the nations (Ezekiel 36:19), YHWH and Yeshua would have remained the best-kept secret of tiny, little Israel, and the rest of the world would still be writhing in Paganism!

According to Jewish Nobel Prize Winners, "The Jews" currently make up approximately 0.25% of the world's population and 2% of the US population, yet they also comprise the biggest percentage of Nobel Prize Winners:

  • Chemistry (28 prize winners, 19% of world total, 28% of US total)
  • Economics (21 prize winners, 38% of world total, 53% of US total)
  • Literature (12 prize winners, 12% of world total, 27% of US total)
  • Physiology or Medicine (52 prize winners, 29% of world total, 42% of US total)
  • Peace (9 prize winners, 10% of world total, 11% of US total)
  • Physics (45 prize winners, 26% of world total, 38% of US total)

Also - check out facts about Jews in places such as Historical and Investigative Research which reveals that "Jews" do NOT control the world or its businesses; and Aish.Com which discusses, in part, how some key tools of navigators in Columbus' time were of Jewish manufacture, and included the "quadrant and the astrolabe". The article at Aish states that the type of quadrant in use at the time was called "Jacob's Staff which had been invented by Rabbi Levi ben Gershon", and also that "Jews had a virtual monopoly at map making then, culling information from Jewish merchants from all over the known world".

But you don't hear much about that. Naah...people are far too busy HATING "the Jews"....
