Palestine-O-Phobia?

We have a new phobia used to attack Jews and Christians. It has been confirmed by none other than the Mayor of New York City. Before I start, let me share my opinion about “Islamophobia,” which has been quite useful in intimidating just about everybody from uttering even the slightest criticism of Islam. Now to be sure, a proper attitude should be maintained in all civil discourse, but disagreement and even criticism is a necessary component of a free society (freedom of speech).

Islamophobia by definition means being afraid of Islam. I am not afraid of Islam, I just disagree with its basic tenets of religion and its political form of Sharia. Conflating fear, with a difference of opinion, is a propaganda coup. Again, I. Am. Not. Afraid. In fact, I love muslim people and praise God for the millions who are finding Jesus as the Son of God, and becoming ex-muslims. (My book, Simple Islam, is available on Kindle for a modest price.)

As a Christian (Zionist) I believe that the Messiah came to save all people and loves all people including Muslims. Yet, according to basic Biblical revelation, it requires our assent and embracing of the aforementioned Savior as sent by Yehovah God to provide the salvation the world so desperately needs.

So, back to Palestine-O-Phobia. A New York City Councilman lost his seat on an immigration committee this week because he stated the fact that there is no country of Palestine and never has been one. The mayor demanded that he apologize. Can you take back a true statement?

De Blasio demands apology for ‘there is no Palestine’ statementThere is no state by that name; there is no place by that name. That’s a fact. I did not make it up,” says New York City councilman. (Israel National News)

Where exactly is your ‘Palestine,’ Mayor de Blasio? – He did not play by the rules, as dictated by the Democrats, so New York City Councilman Kalman Yeger has been bounced off the council’s immigration committee. That’s his punishment for saying “there is no Palestine,” and then refusing to apologize, and if they could send him to a Soviet-Mao style “re-education camp,” they would. We don’t have reorientation gulags here yet, but it’s coming, and already exists on campus. Free speech for me, but not for thee. One man speaks up and it’s like he disturbed a wasps-nest.

…since 1964…the ‘Palestinians’ have been the world’s number one concern, even though they have been nothing but a headache and exist in no history books. Nothing to be found about them before June 2, 1964. That’s when the Arab League certified them as the PLO. That’s when they became a ‘people’ — a people still in search of an ancestry. So far, no luck.” (Jack Engelhard Israel National News)

Is It Islamophobic To Deny That ‘Palestine’ Exists?Prior to 1948 and the birth of Israel, the only group that answered to the name “Palestinians” were Jewish residents of the British Mandate for Palestine. Non-Jews who lived there considered themselves Arabs, not Palestinians, because there had never in history been a separate Palestinian Arab political entity or, prior to the birth of modern Zionism, a national movement that represented the ambitions of such a group. (Prophecy News Watch)

Yet, even on the lie that “there is a country called Palestine”, some accuse of Islamophobia. There seems to be no limit on the outlandish claims. Let’s pray that cooler heads prevail, or better yet, pray that the revealed truth of the Bible will be received by all who love the truth.

The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders, and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this reason God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie, that they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness. 2 Thessalonians 2:9-12

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem and pray for rain. (Thank God for this week’s rain!)
