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.
