No support for Israelis and their sympathizers!


Editor: As Israeli tanks penetrate into Gaza, hundreds of Palestinians are injured; some murdered, medical supplies, food, fuel, electricity and other basic necessities for suffering people are often blocked….

For about one week I have been following thoughtfully and carefully the current Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Most of the International media excuse and sympathize with Israel, making it appear as though they are the victims and that the Palestinians people should blame Hamas for all the atrocities that Israel has caused and continue to cause.{{more}} How outrageous, warped, unsound and wicked to say the least! Despite the fact that Israel’s murderous and disproportionate actions have been condemned by world politicians, Amnesty International and other human rights organizations, they continue to bomb and invade the people’s land, violating their human rights. Sadly, America, a land that was built on true and holy principles regarding the protection of Rights of Freedoms of all, continues to lend support to a people who disrespect the rights of other humans like themselves. America does so under the ‘blind’ pretext that ‘Israel has a desire to protect itself and the right to defend itself.’

Sometimes we tend to see this kind of dull and bias-minded behavior as being far away, but I had a vexing encounter of sitting at home listening to the same disgusting views on our own local TV station by ministers of the gospel. On Monday night, 5 January, 2009, I listened to the programme ‘Encounter’ aired on SVGTV from about 8p.m. The program was spiritually nauseating, particularly some statements made by Pastor Clarke in commenting on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. He said ‘…it is unfair that Israel is being accused…Israel has no choice…If I were the PM of Israel I would have gone in(Gaza) and done the same thing…most journalists are anti-Israel…Israel is going to come out on top because they are God’s people’

* Mr. Clarke, I do not know which God you follow, which Bible you read and which religion you teach and live, but it is certainly not the YHWH-God of the Bible and religion of Jesus Christ(Christianity) that I know. The God I know is not unjust in His ways and He does not base His judgement and blessings upon race. Mr. Clarke, you hold a very spiritually drunkening demonic doctrine that will cause you and many to be lost if you do not repent of it. You preach a deadly, unbiblical concept that tells the world that the Jews are God’s people by virtue of them being Jews with exclusive rights to the land of Palestine as their special birthright . This is wrong! This concept that you hold further promotes that the state of Israel is a divine institution and must be supported at all cost. This doctrine has made you and many become so deadened in your sensibilities that you support murder without fully realizing it. Do you think you are helping unconverted Talmudic Jews; muslims or any other by your propagations? You are just strengthening Israel’s justifications of their wrongs against Palestinians and other world citizens. You are strengthening hatred by Muslims towards Jews and Christians. Additionally, you are encouraging your followers to be inhumane and loveless. Please stop trying to misrepresent the just character of Jesus Christ and you are pushing many far from Christianity and from accepting Jesus Christ as Saviour from all their sins. The Scriptures do not claim that Jews are God’s people by virtue of being Jews. To be the people of God, Jews must be converted like any other people. “But now in Christ Jesus ye who sometimes were far off are made nigh by the blood of Christ…for through Him we both have access by one Spirit unto the Father…’’Ephesians 2:13-22. The Bible clearly states that we are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus. For ‘as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ. There is neither Jew or Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female; for ye are all one in Christ Jesus.’’Galations 3:26-28.

There are numerous Bible texts showing what makes us God’s people. Not a single one of them makes one race (the physical Jews) superior to another. Obedience to the truths of God through the Holy Spirit has always been the condition for being called God’s people (Deut.28:28:1-10,13,14)

Mr. Clarke, other Christian Zionists like John Hagee and ‘blind’ supporters of the Jews should note that Talmudic Jews see other races as being less than human beings and they reject Jesus Christ. “ To this day, the name ‘Jesus Christ’ is considered a swear word in many Jewish homes. The Saviour’s precious name has become profanity…’ Michael L. Brown, Our Hands Are Stained With Blood,p.xiii.

May YHWH God open the eyes of all by removing all injustice, spiritual darkness and warped reasoning so that we can recognize and condemn all evil, such as that practiced by the murderous Israeli currently. I reject this behavior totally and I do not support the murderous Israelis and their sympathizers.
