In recent days, the terrorist organization Hamas has fired hundreds of Iranian rockets at Israeli cities and Israeli men, women, and children. The IDF – Israeli Defense Force – has used its Iron Dome system to great effect intercepting more than 90% of the Hamas rockets, meaning that about one in ten rockets have gotten through.
As the nation of Israel actively asserts its right to defend its people and property from Muslim terrorists, fighting and striking back against rocket launch sites and hunting down and killing the leaders of Hamas responsible for these attacks, a significant portion of the world has chosen once again not to denounce Israel’s enemies, but to condemn Israel for defending herself against her enemies.
I, for one, support Israel’s right to self-defense. And more to the point, I affirm Israel’s right to exist as a nation. Furthermore, I unabashedly approve of the material and moral support which the United States of America has provided over the years and decades to that end.
Anti-Semitism does not make sense to me. Anti-Israel sentiment does not make sense to me.
Calling Jews “Christ killers” is a lot of nonsense when you take a step back and realize that we all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God, and when you remember John 3:16. “God so loved the world that he sent his only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in him will not perish but have everlasting life.”
That means we are all Christ killers if the Jews are.
But then the notion that the Jews and Romans who descend from the men who put Jesus to death on a cross are particularly guilty of that innocent bloodshed may make sense to people who buy into Critical Race Theory, Critical Theory, System Racism here in America.
God promised he would bless those who bless the descendants of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, and that he would curse those who curse them. And maybe that is part of why the United States of America still enjoys some of the blessing and protection of God despite our collective defiance of God’s Law in abortion and the promotion of sexual immorality.
