On September 11 of 2011, as the civilized global community will respectfully and solemnly mark the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 tragedy of the World Trade Center terrorist attack, some others will find nothing better to do than to congregate under the banner of DURBAN III.
DURBAN I (2001, Durban, South Africa) and DURBAN II (2009, Geneva, Switzerland) convened under the guise of “a global fight against racism”. Keynote speakers included Fidel Castro, Yassir Arafat and Mahmoud Ahmadinejad who all agreed on the fact that Israel was the worst culprit when it comes to racism. Actually, Ahmadinejad equated ZIONISM with RACISM.
A far cry from an unbiased conference on racism and human rights abuse, DURBAN I, II and soon III ( in New York) have the delegitimization and even demonization of Israel in common. (find out more on this site)
This is nothing new, as the enemy of the ONE who calls Israel “the apple of my eye” is trying to destroy God’s chosen people. King Solomon said it best in Ecclesiastes 1:9:
That which has been is that which will be, and that which has been done is that which will be done. So, there is nothing new under the sun.
This not a political battle, this is not a sociological or cultural battle, this is a spiritual battle between the forces of evil and the God of Israel (and He wins at the end!). This is Antisemitism disguised in a false human rights cloak
No other country in the world and in the history of mankind as been more falsely accused and denigrated than Israel. The United Nations even passed a resolution in 1975 that also equated Zionism with Racism, only to rescind on it in 1991(what took them so long?). Zionism has been given a very bad reputation, it currently carries the stigma of intolerance and hatred as Israel is now portrayed as the “New Nazis” of the Middle east, the exact opposite of what it really is!
On September 22, 2011 (9/22/2011), and I cannot help but look at the date as another slap in the face of decent human beings, DURBAN III will convene and attempt to revive, solidify and legitimize the 2001 DURBAN I Declaration while delegitimizing Israel. Several countries have already stated that they wouldn’t take part in DURBAN III ( Canada, Israel, United States, Czech Republic, Italy, The Netherlands and Australia). Hopefully many will follow suit.
This is an event that CANNOT be allowed to succeed. WE ALL NEED TO JOIN IN PRAYER!!! So I would like to offer a suggestion about this upcoming event to take place on 9/22/11.
Many will be able to be present in NEW YORK on 9/22/11 to protest, but many will not be there and that is why we need to pray.
We need as many believers as possible to pray for God’s will and Israel’s protection as DURBAN III takes place. WHY DON’T YOU COMMIT TO PRAY DAILY AT 9:22 AM OR PM FOR THE NEXT MONTH? It doesn’t have to be long, but just genuine and heartfelt. We know that prayer works! (set-up a daily alarm on your phone today!)
As always, firmly rooted in the teachings of Yeshua through God’s Word, we need to admonish and rebuke IN LOVE as the Apostle Paul so powerfully stated:
And we urge you, brethren, admonish the unruly, encourage the fainthearted, help the weak, be patient with all men. See that no one repays another with evil for evil, but always seek after that which is good for one another and for all men. Rejoice always; pray without ceasing. 1 Thessalonians 5:14-17
I will pray at 9:24 p.m. daily for Bible-believing people around the world to stand up for Israel and defend her right to exist. Those who bless Israel will be blest.
