Understanding The Conflict

We are hearing a revised history not based on fact.

Anti-Semitic sentiment has infiltrated many American churches, both Mainline Protestant and Catholic, with leakage starting to seep into Evangelical churches too … allegedly as part of promoting “social justice,” “anti-racism,” and (lately) “decolonization.” That last one is just a fancy word for ethnic cleansing, aimed at Westerners, Jews included.   

The name, “Palestine,” was originally invented for sinister purposes. In 135 AD, the Roman Emperor, Hadrian, in an attempt to sever all ties of the Jewish people to their homeland, not only changed the name of Israel to Palestine, but also changed the name of Jerusalem to Aelia Capitalina. The name, Palestine, is still being used as a propaganda tool today. The name has made its way into textbooks and even into some of the maps in our Bibles. And the term “Palestinians,” as applied to a group of people, is also an invented term and was never even used until 1964. It was no-doubt chosen to conform to the contrived name of the land. There is no Palestinian race. They are Arab immigrants from neighboring Arab countries. Arafat himself was born in Egypt, according to his own biographer. There never was a “Palestinian” nation or people group.

The Arabs that were living in the area were advised to leave prior to the 1948 battle for independence that Israel fought after the British left and abandoned Israel to their fate. A West Point general once said that although they study wars from all over the world, they do not study the 1948 War for Independence or the Six-Day War of Israel because “West Point is interested in understanding strategy and tactics, and these wars don’t make any sense at all. “In 1948, Israel and all its territory officially became a nation. Two years later (1950), Jordan illegally occupied the West Bank, but there was no outcry then, even from the Palestinians. But when Israel regained control of the land—that was already theirs—in the Six-Day War, somehow that was occupation.

God promised Abraham and his descendants the land (Genesis 15:18-21) and reaffirmed that promise to Moses about 600 years later. (Numbers 34:2-12) God reiterated the promise yet again some 800 years after Moses through the prophet Ezekiel, even while the Jewish people were in exile in Babylon. (Ezekiel 47:17-20) The boundaries of the land were very specific, and the most detailed description is the Numbers 34 account. When you overlay that description on a modern map, there are varying opinions by different scholars on the ancient landmarks. However, what’s clear is that Israel’s current borders make up less than half of what God promised them. Israel’s original inheritance was all of present-day Israel—including all of the West Bank and Gaza Strip—plus parts of Egypt, Syria, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, and Iraq.

Nolan Lewallen has written great articles about this history and his description of the return to Gaza by President George W. Bush is a classic. “The international community has pressured Israel to give up some of its “land for peace” for decades. It’s easy to be generous with another country’s land. In 2002, President George W. Bush promoted the “Roadmap to Peace” that outlined a two-state solution, which included giving away some of Israel’s land, such as the Gaza Strip. Part of Phase One was “End of violence by Palestinians.” I wonder if Bush raises unicorns on his Crawford, Texas, ranch. That was and is a pipe dream. The PLO’s founder, Arafat, reportedly once said he didn’t want his daughter to grow up knowing that her father had agreed to a peace agreement with Israel. Current Palestinian leader, Mahmoud Abbas, has said, “We welcome every drop of blood spilled in Jerusalem.” Palestinians even name their schools and streets after suicide bombers who died bombing Israelis and spend tens of millions of dollars every month rewarding their survivors.”

In 2013, Obama gave Iran $150 billion of which $1.7 billion was in cash and $400 million of that cash was flown to Tehran in the form of untraceable foreign currency. Biden just released $6 billion in frozen assets to Iran. Several reports suggest that some of the $90 billion in weapons Biden left the Taliban in Afghanistan have gotten into the hands of Hamas and are being used against Israel. Meanwhile, millions of illegal migrants’ stream across our border with little or no vetting. America has been a haven for those immigrants who wanted to become Americans and support their country. Over 90% of all Jews live in Israel or America and value our freedom and protection. This sanctuary is at risk with the leadership and decisions we are making. The corruption of churches reminds us that this is primarily a spiritual problem and will require primarily a spiritual solution. “Pray for the peace of Jerusalem.” (Psalm 122.6)

“I AM A JEW” WHAT DOES THAT MEAN? IT DOESN’T MEAN WHAT MOST PEOPLE THINK IT MEANS.

This should not be misconstrued as support for Hamas, however, for anyone thinking America’s obligated to back the country of Israel because the Israeli Jews are allegedly Abraham’s Israelite descendants, I wonder if the following quotations (all of them from recognized Jewish authorities) have something to say about the Zionists’ claims to alleged fulfilled prophecies and the never-ending Middle East conflicts:

“Strictly speaking, it is incorrect to call an ancient Israelite a ‘Jew’ or to call a contemporary Jew an ‘Israelite’ or a ‘Hebrew.’” (Richard Siegel and Carl Rheins, eds., “Identity Crisis,” The Jewish Almanac, (New York, NY: Bantam Books, 1980) p. 3.)

That sentence is the opening sentence of the First Chapter entitled “Identity Crisis” of the 1980 Jewish Almanac. That today’s Jews are not genetic Israelites is also admitted in “The Jewish Encyclopedia,” the “Encyclopedia Judaica,” “The Universal Jewish Encyclopedia,” “The Standard Jewish Encyclopedia,” and by many of their historians.

According to three Jewish encyclopedias and Flavius Josephus, the entire Edomite nation was forced into converting to Judaism and became known as Judahites at the time of the high priest John Hyrcanus (Maccabaeus):

“…in the days of John Hyrcanus (end of the second century B.C.E.) … the Edomites became a section of the Jewish people.” (“Edom,” Encyclopaedia Judaica (Jerusalem, Israel: Encyclopaedia Judaica Company, 1971) Volume 6, p. 378.)

“They were then incorporated with the Jewish nation….” (“Edom, Idumea,” The Jewish Encyclopedia (New York & London: Funk and Wagnalls Company, 1904) Volume V, p. 41.)

“…from then on they constituted a part of the Jewish people, Herod [King of Judea] being one of their descendants.” (Cecil Roth and Geoffrey Wigoden, “Edom (Idumea),” The New Standard Jewish Encyclopedia (Garden City, NY: Doubleday & Company, Inc., 1977) p. 589.)

“…they submitted to the use of circumcision, and the rest of the Jewish ways of living; at which time … they were hereafter no other than Jews.” (Flavius Josephus, “The Antiquities of the Jews,” Josephus, (Grand Rapids, MI: Kregel Publications, 1960) Book XIII, Chapter IX, Verse 1, p. 279.)

We keep hearing that if we don’t bless the modern State of Israel (which America has been doing since at least 1948) that we will be cursed. However, it seems it’s been just the opposite, Since 1948, you name it, and there’s not an area in America wherein she hasn’t become worse off.

Could it because America has identified the wrong people as Israel.

Today’s Jews are not the only ones with an identity crisis.

Most definitely this is a spiritual battle. The conversations among the secular world revolve around political motivations and completely miss the mark. Brett Weinstein on his Dark Horse podcast is a perfect example of great hubris with empty meaning. To understand the root cause of such evil, we must look at the Quran. What is being taught to each side and can barbaric indoctrination be negotiated with? Americans struggle with understanding the depth of evil Hamas proved and our centrist worldview naively believes that we can simply convince them that peace is our aim.

So true. The aim of islam is to dominate the world and enact world wide sharia. The qu’ran and it’s doctrines are not so much a religion, as a violent political ideology that is hell bent on world wide domination by any means possible. Gaza, with it’s typical indoctrination of it’s children to grow up to hate Israel and America, is a breeding ground for terrorists. They cannot be negotiated with. They will lie to promote islam, as directed by the qu’ran. They do not want peace. They never will.
And as for taliban ted weiland, we DO have to bless Israel. America has gotten worse over the decades NOT because we blessed Israel (or the wrong Isralis) but because we’ve fallen away from God and are not teaching our children of God. We’ve removed God from schools and society. Blessings and Curses. Simple as that.
And even Israel, that had their laws and government handed to them by God Himself, via Moses, STILL fell away from God and stopped teaching their children God’s ways.

Beware of false prophets. Taliban Ted is by far one of the worst I’ve seen. Spawn of satan. disgusting.

The above comment is in response to:

“We keep hearing that if we don’t bless the modern State of Israel (which America has been doing since at least 1948) that we will be cursed. However, it seems it’s been just the opposite, Since 1948, you name it, and there’s not an area in America wherein she hasn’t become worse off.”

If anyone really wants to know what happened to the Jews, visit Answers in Genesis. Their scientific research utilizing the most advanced DNA technology of today, and the latest archeology and linguistic research, is absolutely unparalleled.

Here’s another taliban ted weiland lie:

“According to three Jewish encyclopedias and Flavius Josephus, the entire Edomite nation was forced into converting to Judaism and became known as Judahites at the time of the high priest John Hyrcanus (Maccabaeus):

“…in the days of John Hyrcanus (end of the second century B.C.E.) … the Edomites became a section of the Jewish people.” (“Edom,” Encyclopaedia Judaica (Jerusalem, Israel: Encyclopaedia Judaica Company, 1971) Volume 6, p. 378.)

“They were then incorporated with the Jewish nation….” (“Edom, Idumea,” The Jewish Encyclopedia (New York & London: Funk and Wagnalls Company, 1904) Volume V, p. 41.)”

Guess what taliban ted? The EDOMITES WERE ALREADY A SEMITEC PEOPLE AND OF THE SAME FAMILY AS THE ISRAELITES. Already “Jewish” as you call them.
A more accurate term would be “Semitec” since the term “Jewish” is first used in the Bible when Israel split into “Israel” and “Judah.” The Israeli’s from Judah were called “Jews.” All Jews are Israelite, but not all Israelites are “Jewish.”

All Semitic people are descended from Noah’s son Shem, from where the Semites come.

Jacob and Esau were both sons of Isaac, grandsons of ABRAHAM. BOTH FULLY SEMETIC

Jacob becomes “Israel” and fathers the 12 tribes of Israel.

Esau settles Edom, and the 12 tribes descended from him are the Edomites.

THE ARE THE SAME FAMILY ALREADY. A more accurate term would have been that the Edomites RECOMBINED with their Israelite cousins. And I’m speaking in terms of actual ancestry now, not beliefs.

The Edomites are NOT “imposters” as you so cleverly suggest. They may not be from the 12 tribes of Israel, but they are very closely related. We don’t really know who ALL the ancestral “Jews” are today. They were scattered all around the world, there has been much inter-marriage, but one thing is for sure. The Bible is CRYSTAL CLEAR about the real estate of Israel, and it’s exact location. That alone should be enough for us to BLESS ISRAEL.
