There is nothing positive attached to the word Intifada. In fact, since the first Palestinian Intifada of 1987, the word has been known to mean the “violent revolt of the people”. The word itself is Arabic for “shaking off” and has commonly become synonymous with “uprising”. There is a connotation of resistance against oppression that of course, in the case of the Palestinian intifada would be referring to the “Israeli oppression”; if indeed the accusation was factual.
I fear, not for Israel that God has promised to never forsake, but her enemies that He has promised to destroy. Yet it is never too late to return to God and His truth.
MAYBE IT IS TIME FOR A FOURTH INTIFADA, AN UPRISING AGAINST ANTISEMITISM. THAT ONE, I WOULD DEFINITELY SUPPORT!
