Muslims for Israel, Now Wait...Really?

As some of you might already have heard, there is a group from Great-Britain known as "British Muslims for Israel" whose director is Hasan Afzal. This group of muslims is also part of the Institute for Middle Eastern Democracy and they claim that global Islam's desire to eradicate Israel off the map is absolutely ludicrous.

They do not appear to hold to the view of Israel being a Jewish Land granted by God to the Jewish people, but they offer quite a departure from the vitriolic anti-Jewish propaganda usually dispensed by muslims the world around.

These people are an encouragement to the world and should also be encouraged for the stand they are taking to support Israel. They are quickly becoming enemies within their own ranks.
The article in the British newspaper The Spectator is worth reading (to read article click here)

Like the writer of the article says: "They also offer a ray of hope for the future. They show that there are Muslims who pass that key civilisational litmus test with flying colours."

Additionaly, there is a short video interview of Hasan Afzal on Israeli TV (to view video click here). The first 30 seconds are in Hebrew but the rest is in English.

These people need our prayers for protection, discernment and boldness. May God bless them as they are a living example of Genesis 12:3: And I will bless those who bless you, And the one who curses you I will curse.

How Long Must One Lie for it to Become the Truth?

After several years without bombings of the sort, Jerusalem was again the victim of a suicide/homicide bombing on Wednesday March 23rd, 2011. Such bombings are unfortunately no longer surprising while they always are devastating. 30 people were hurt and one died so far.
As terrible as the bombing was, the reporting by Reuters was equally devastating. Through its biased news network, Reuters was quoted to say: " Police said it was a "terrorist attack" -- Israel's term for a Palestinian strike. It was the first time Jerusalem had been hit by such a bomb since 2004." (read the whole article here) .

What else should we call it then?
Palestinian disagreement? Militant self-defense? an unfortunate explosion?

If you tell a lie long enough, eventually people are bound to believe it is the truth. Hitler was very successful using this method, as he eventually got most of Germany and other European countries to believe that Jews were sub-human vermin not worthy of life.
Reuters should be ashamed of themselves as they are using their platform to disguise their own brand of anti-semitism and present it as international news.
Report the news as it happens or stay out of the news business all together
This is pityfull, Shame on you Reuters!
