Annihilation/Elimination of Israel

Iran’s Khamenei: No Cure for Barbaric Israel but Annihilation

Last week I wrote about an anti-Semitic flyer that was distributed in Newton, Mass. Please do not be naive or ignorant regarding this matter. This is happening around the world, fueled by the direct hatred of Israel, especially from Islam. It is seen in this one of many examples from Islamic literature:

The Day of Judgement will not come about until Muslims fight the Jews, when the Jew will hide behind stones and trees. The stones and trees will say O Muslims, O Abdullah, there is a Jew behind me, come and kill him. Hadith and SahihMuslim#6985  

Although there are multiple interpretations of this verse, it is repeated often by radical Islamic leaders as justification for killing Jews. It is even part of the Hamas Covenant, a designated terror group, at the end of Chapter One Article Seven. It is followed by Article Eight:

“Allah is its goal, the Prophet its model to be followed, the Koran its constitution, Jihad its way, and death for the sake of Allah its loftiest desire.” Hamas Covenant

Islam’s Jew-Hating Hadith in ContextThe infamous hadith about the Jew hiding behind a tree is not some apocryphal canon held in esteem by an unimportant few, but runs parallel to anti-Jewish motifs throughout the Koran.

In addition to the words used in the title, annihilate and eliminate, we can add genocide, eradicated and “total extinction”. Here is a list of statements made about Israel using these words. Just read through a few of the threats and you will clearly see spirit of death that emanates from such hatred.

Yet still, remember that Jesus died for the whole world. All who come to Him as Messiah and Son of God will find life. Many are turning to the living God Yehovah,the Life-Giver; and they are finding deliverance from the death cult of unbelief. Pray that all who love the truth will find it in Yeshua, who Himself is the truth.

Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me. John 14:6

For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved. John 3:16-17

Pray for Muslims and all who hate Israel. Pray for wisdom in Congress as they confront the lying spirit. Pray for rain and pray for the peace of Jerusalem.

Israel Is-Real

16 05 2018

Dry Bones Pal kids

Let’s Get Real! That could be the slogan for moving the US Embassy to Jerusalem, the only capital city the Jews have looked to, for over 3,000 years. NO. OTHER. COUNTRY. HAS. EVER. MADE JERUSALEM. ITS. CAPITAL. CITY.

Reality also needs to be invoked in the Gaza uprising that has consumed most of the media. The nations are ignoring the real history and slamming Israel for the deaths in the Hamas attacks on the Gaza border. They again accuse Israel of killing women and children. Yet, even though Hamas did everything it could, to put women and children in harm’s way, the reality contradicts the propaganda.

Hamas official: 50 of the 62 Gazans killed in border violence were our members – Salah Bardawil’s confirmation means number of acknowledged members of terror groups who died on Monday and Tuesday is now 53 Israel National News

Our local NBC affiliate in Raleigh, NC at 11 PM Monday only showed video of the rioting, but no pictures of the Embassy opening ceremony. Hamas has aimed to destroy Israel for years, nothing new here. But moving our Embassy was a truly historic event, not deemed of any significance at all to WRAL-TV. The only mention was as the motive for Hamas attacking the sovereign border of Israel. Shame on WRAL.

Hamas will fail to destroy the Jews and disappear from history, just as the empires of the Babylonians, Persians, Greeks, Romans and every other empire up to now. This includes the Nazis, Soviets and inevitably Islam. This is not because the Jews are any better people, but because Yehovah God, the God who is a father, the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob made eternal, unconditional promises to Israel. Their very existence after 3,000 years is a miracle testament to God’s faithfulness to His own word.

“Therefore, give the people of Israel this message from the Sovereign Yehovah: I am bringing you back, but not because you deserve it. I am doing it to protect my holy name, on which you brought shame while you were scattered among the nations.” Ezekiel 36:22

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem and pray for rain.

Hamas Thanks North Korea

6 05 2017

Dry Bones Hamas - N Korea

‘Israel will receive a merciless, thousand-fold punishment’ North Korea threatens Israel with ‘thousand-fold punishment’ after Defense Minister Liberman calls Kim Jong-un a ‘madman.’

Hamas thanks North Korea for threatening Israel Hamas welcomes North Korea’s threat against Israel and its support for the Palestinian people.

Because I love Zion, I will not keep still. Because my heart yearns for Jerusalem, I cannot remain silent. I will not stop praying for her until her righteousness shines like the dawn, and her salvation blazes like a burning torch. The nations will see your righteousness. World leaders will be blinded by your glory. And you will be given a new name by Yehovah’s own mouth. Yehovah will hold you in his hand for all to see—a splendid crown in the hand of God. Never again will you be called “The Forsaken City” or “The Desolate Land.” Your new name will be “The City of God’s Delight” and “The Bride of God,” for Yehovah delights in you and will claim you as his bride. Isaiah 62:1-4 NLT

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem!

Amnesty Nails Hamas for War Crimes

28 05 2015

Now here is a refreshing story. In a departure from the usual media anti-Israel narrative, Amnesty International has finally exposed war crimes by Hamas in last summer’s Gaza war.

My good friend Daniel Karvonen, from Mankato, MN. tipped me off to what turns out to be quite a number of reports across media. In contrast to the normal drumbeat accusing Israel this is real news to Western media.

Amnesty accuses Hamas of ‘war crimes’ in Gaza conflict

Islamist militants from Hamas committed war crimes against fellow Palestinians in Gaza – including killings, kidnappings and torture – during the summer 2014 conflict with Israel, Amnesty International said in a report released Wednesday.

The London-based rights group detailed a “brutal campaign of abductions, torture and unlawful killings against Palestinians accused of ‘collaborating’ with Israel” by Hamas, which controls the Gaza Strip.

“In the chaos of the conflict, the de facto Hamas administration granted its security forces free rein to carry out horrific abuses including against people in its custody,” said Amnesty’s Middle East and North Africa director, Philip Luther.

“These spine-chilling actions, some of which amount to war crimes, were designed to exact revenge and spread fear across the Gaza Strip,” he said.

The report, entitled “Strangling Necks“, details the “extrajudicial execution of at least 23 Palestinians and the arrest and torture of dozens of others”. (Latest update : 2015-05-27)

Here are two more reports; one from CNN : Amnesty report says Hamas committed war crimes against Palestinians

and surprisingly, a report from Aljazeera America.: Amnesty finds ‘spine chilling’ Hamas crimes

Still, I have not seen it on TV News, but am glad the report is out there. Israel is always fighting an uphill battle in the propaganda war. We can pray for the truth to come out, but we must also speak up when we have an opportunity. Being a Christina Zionist is not a passive position. Let us speak truth to lies in every situation.

A favorite Scripture verse carries a profound truth and with it the responsibility to verbally declare righteous truth. If we do not, evil voices will prevail. The result will be the destruction of all we hold dear. A great way to be reminded to pray for Israel, for our city and for our country is when you see your digital clock with the numbers 11:11. It happens twice a day, and connects us to Proverbs 11:11. Use it as a boost of memory to pray and speak out loud a blessing.

By the blessing of the upright the city is exalted, But it is overthrown by the mouth of the wicked. Proverbs 11:11

I Joined the Dry Bones Family

17 11 2014

Dry Bones member D14B16_1I just joined the Dry Bones family and you can, too. This has been my favorite Israeli political cartoon since my first visit to Israel in 1984. It was in the Jerusalem Post daily paper. Yaakov Kirschen makes a compelling case for fighting antisemitism with cartoons in what he describes as “a post literate world.” (Click here to join!)

The Problem: Israel is being boycotted, delegitimized, and defamed!! There is now a massive rise in antisemitism world-wide. Support for Christians and Jews in the Middle East has collapsed. Western campuses are hostile to our younger generation. We are shocked and frustrated. The situation is dire, urgent, and obvious, but an effective response seems to elude us.

Let’s Begin:The beginning of an effective response needs to be an understanding of “post literacy”.  This was once a bi-polar world. People were either literate (they could read and write) or they were illiterate (they were unable to read or write). That world is gone. The targets of our messages are now post literate. (they can read and write but they prefer not to). Letter writing has disappeared. Emails beyond a few lines are ignored. Texting, tweeting, and the rise of the Instagram are the evolutionary result of this post literacy.

Dry Bones:The increase in importance of the cartoon is yet another step in this evolution. . . . And, in part, explains the wild popularity of Dry Bones cartoons in the digital world. If you are a Zionist you have probably shared or received Dry Bones cartoons.

We Are The Answer:The time has come to organize and expand the Dry Bones response. We want you to join and support us. Whether you are a young student or a concerned retiree, join us. Whether you are Jewish or not we offer you a way to fight back. Join us. We are the answer. Yaakov Kirschen, Dry Bones

Hamas’ Goal and Yehovah’s Response

14 11 2014

During the summer Gaza conflict, I wrote about the goal of Hamas. Today I am re-posting that blog. But this text from Zechariah tells Yehovah God’s response to those who would destroy Israel.

This message concerning the fate of Israel came from Yehovah: “This message is from Yehovah, who stretched out the heavens, laid the foundations of the earth, and formed the human spirit. I will make Jerusalem like an intoxicating drink that makes the nearby nations stagger when they send their armies to besiege Jerusalem and Judah. On that day I will make Jerusalem an immovable rock. All the nations will gather against it to try to move it, but they will only hurt themselves. On that day,” says Yehovah, “I will cause every horse to panic and every rider to lose his nerve. I will watch over the people of Judah, but I will blind all the horses of their enemies. And the clans of Judah will say to themselves, ‘The people of Jerusalem have found strength in Yehovah of Heaven’s Armies, their God.'” Zechariah 12:1-4

WHAT IS THE GOAL OF HAMAS?

Great-Quotes-056genocide  (jĕnˈə-sīdˌ) noun

The systematic and planned extermination of an entire national, racial, political, or ethnic group. (definition)

Here is a quote from the Preamble to the Hamas Charter: ″Israel will exist and will continue to exist until Islam will obliterate it, just as it obliterated others before it″.

No further comment is necessary. But please let me suggest a different way to view the “death toll” statistics that keep rolling across our TV screens. Roughly 70 Israelis and 1700 Gazans were killed in the last four weeks. The emphasis was on civilian deaths. Israel was charged with genocide by many accusers.

However, what if you measured these statistics by actual intent?

Note the definition of genocide: “planned extermination.”

Israel’s goal was to kill zero civilians. Hamas’ goal was to kill as many civilians as possible, including their own (by human shield strategy and by errant rockets of their own).

Hamas Sermon from the Gaza Strip: Our Doctrine Entails Exterminating the Jews

Using a relatively modest desire to kill 10 civilians per rocket @ 3,000 fired in four weeks, Hamas hope to kill 30,000 Israeli civilians. Does the fact that they were bad at it, or that Israel had great defense change their intent?

Israel’s goal was zero civilians killed. Do you think for one minute that if Israel wanted to kill all Gazans that they could not do it in four weeks? Mercifully, it appears that this round of war is ending. We thank God for that. But the motive of Hamas has not changed. They would kill all Jews if they could. That, my friends, is genocide.

“Because you have had an ancient hatred, and have shed the blood of the children of Israel by the power of the sword at the time of their calamity, when their iniquity came to an end, therefore, as I live,” says the Lord Yehovah, “I will prepare you for blood, and blood shall pursue you; since you have not hated blood, therefore blood shall pursue you.” Ezekiel 35:5-6

Golda Meir (fourth Prime Minister of Israel): “Peace will come when the Arabs will love their children more than they hate us.”

Benjamin Netanyahu (current Prime Minister of Israel): “The truth is that if Israel were to put down its arms there would be no more Israel. If the Arabs were to put down their arms there would be no more war.”

I would like to call today’s post, “News you can use!”

(As is my custom, I have taken the liberty to change the word “LORD” to Yehovah. Every single time you see LORD or GOD in all capital letters in the Old Testament, the actual Hebrew word is Yehovah. This name occurs 6,828 times in the Hebrew text, yet remains untranslated in most Bibles. His name, obscured for 2,500 years, is now being revealed. It is TIME to restore the name of Yehovah!)

Daniel Tragerman – 4 years old

23 08 2014

daniel-3Red and yellow, black and white, all are precious in His sight. This precious little boy, Daniel Tragerman, was murdered intentionally by Hamas Friday afternoon while at home with his Israeli parents. He was playing in a tent inside his living room when a mortar exploded outside. It was shrapnel from the blast that took his life. I don’t have many words right now.

But it must be understood that Hamas fires their rockets at kindergartens and homes with the goal of killing Jewish children. That is never true of Israel’s Defense Forces. Many precious Palestinian children have also died, as human shields for Hamas, because it needs high death numbers to influence world opinion. Shame on them. Yehovah God will judge!

As we tuck in our little ones tonight, say a prayer for all the little ones on both sides of the clash of civilizations. Yes, it is also a clash of religions, one views life as sanctified by a loving God, and the other worships death as the “highest good”.

Hamas has now admitted that it was their group that kidnapped and murdered the three Israeli teens in June that caused the present escalation of thousands of Hamas rockets fired at Israel’s civilians.

“Now therefore, listen to me, my children,
For blessed are those who keep my ways.
Hear instruction and be wise,
And do not disdain it.
Blessed is the man who listens to me,
Watching daily at my gates,
Waiting at the posts of my doors.
For whoever finds me finds life,
And obtains favor from Yehovah;
But he who sins against me wrongs his own soul;
All those who hate me love death.” Proverbs 8:32-36
