'We the People'
will NEVER be silenced!
It seems like I saw a line on a Drudge Report lead that said that Hamas was demoralized. If that is true, then maybe Israel is breaking their spirit. I think Israel has shown great restraint up to this point. They need to root out Hamas and destroy everything they had (all their rockets.) Going forward they need to insure this never happens again! Israel basically owns the Gaza Strip, but gave it up to the Palestinians. What has Israel gotten in return for that generous gesture? Bombs reigning down on their heads!Unfortunately for Israel, this madness will never end! I would find a homeland for the Palestinians in other Arab countries such as Jordan. Once they are placed and told: THIS is now your home hopefully they will stop harassing Israel. I look on Palestinians about like I look at our own African Americans: a people constantly looking for a free handout, or sympathy, or something to whine about.
The own brethren do NOT want them and that is the problem.
Oh...by the way Diane, the fact that Jesus was a Jew does indeed benefit Israel!The fact that many percieve Him as the Son of God and He was also a Jew is a BIG plus for Israel in Christian lands. A good Christian would do nothing but help the Jewish people (and deservedly so because they are a decent people who want only peace.)For those who believe the prophets, all of this was fortold. Israel turned its back on God and suffered all these bad things because THEY chose to put other gods.This will end when Christ returns; until then, the Jewish people will continue to suffer. Jesus Christ is the God who will rescue Israel His people. When they see the scars in his hands, they will realize they were wrong about who the mesiah was! (I know...this is all faith based stuff!)
Jesus is only the Savior if you believe him to be so...the Jews do NOT and that is their right. Israel has NOT nor NEVER turned its back on God the Father...they just do NOT believe Jess to be the Savior as in Jewish law when the Messiah comes there will be peace on Earth...and guess what...there is anything but peace on Earth. And BTW...Jews have NO other God before them but Gd the Father.
Even in the days of King Solomon, the Jewish people accepted other gods before them. King Solomon had many wives and some of them had other religions; yet, even King Solomon followed after some of them. This has – according to the bible – displeased God.OK…Diane…I’m looking at this from a Christian standpoint; not a Jewish one: it is true the Jewish people say there is ONE God, and on that point, I would say they are right (depending on their definition of god.) However, no matter how they define “god”, it is there right to worship god as they please.I – me personally – believe the godhead is composed of three individuals: the father, the son, and the holy ghost.The Jewish people are STILL waiting on the messiah as promised by the prophets of old; but many Christians believe that the messiah was Jesus Christ and the Jewish intelligentsia of the time failed to recognize him. I believe it will be the “Son” of God who will rescue Israel in a future war. The “Father” has given much to the Son to do.It is foretold in the bible, that Christ will save the nation of Israel in its most disparate hour. At that point, they will realize their ancestors made a mistake. This is MY understanding of the bible. I don’t mean to offend any Jewish person because I know they are every bit religious and spiritual and any other group. However, I believe it will be Christ that saves Israel; not Obama, or Kerry, or anyone else.
