It is very obvious that when you tell a lie long enough, the masses eventually believe it to be the truth. While in prison for his failed putsch attempt of 1923, Adolf Hitler wrote Mein Kampf (My Struggle) that was later published in 1925 (vol.1) and 1926 (vol.2). So, by the mid-twenties, Hitler was already spreading his vitriol about the Jewish people to a people plagued by an apparently unrecoverable economic crisis. Germany bought the lies, some parts of Europe followed suit and within 10 years the “European Jew” had become the sub-race that HAD to be completely annihilated. Europe had found a scapegoat! Or should I say that Europe had”rediscovered” the same scapegoat of old used throughout history to carry the blame for all the ills of the planet? The lies had become the truth, and the rest remains eternally branded on the Jewish psyche as 6,000,000 Jews perished in the camps.
For a short period after WWII, the subject of antisemitism and the Shoah (Hebrew word for the Holocaust) became highly taboo as a greatly reduced Jewish community of refugees sought to leave Europe and settle in the “Promise Land”. Before long it was 1948 and the modern state of Israel was born, by a miracle of God and through the work of the then still ethical United Nations.
Decades of lies, political manipulation and propaganda led the world to start turning on Israel. The media slowly became one of the strongest ally of the enemies of the Jews (the same media that is apparently “controlled” by the Jews). We must be such a self-destructive people!
Eventually, after a parade of pompous and embarrassing anti-Israel diatribes, on November 29, 2012, exactly 65 years to the day after Israel was re-born as a nation, the UN voted to include Palestine as a non-voting member. The lies had become the truth again and Israel was well on its way to further delegitimization by 179 countries out of 193.
Now that Palestine is being recognized, albeit as a nonmember observer state, the envelope will continue to be pushed further and further. Mahmoud Abbas still vows to destroy Israel and to make Jerusalem the “eternal capital of Palestine”. But the rules have changed now that a precedent has been set. The November UN vote proved that unilateral decisions can be made regardless of any peace negotiations, that is of course only in the case of Israel “the occupier”. With the Oslo Accords now defunct, if not officially, at least in principle, the Palestinian Authority will continue to manipulate the media and the international political community for full membership in the UN. Frankly, I see very few obstacles in the way of that happening soon, as the world appears to be on a mission to micromanage Israel.
Since the November vote, Six European nations have asked Israel to give a clear account for their continued settlements in the “occupied territories”. Britain, France, Spain, Denmark, Germany and Sweden are calling on Israel ambassadors in their respective countries to reconsider Israel’s additional settlements in light of the recent inclusion of Palestine in the UN. This claim (supported by US secretary of State Hillary Clinton) is made because it is believed that Israel’s settlement decision is counterproductive in the area of peacemaking. But wait a minute, is that “peacemaking” with the very people who ignored any dialogue with Israel and went to “daddy UN” to cry for recognition? How fair is that? Oh, I forgot, we’re dealing with Israel, so we don’t have to be fair, we just have to try to run Israel from afar! The lies have become the truth again.
As if this wasn’t enough, apparently emboldened by the recent vote, the UN passed another resolution on December 4th (174/6/6) asking Israel to allow nuclear inspectors in. Currently, Israel has not signed a non-proliferation treaty and it looks like the UN is working towards cornering them to do so. I find this both ironic and tragic when we allow a country like Iran to build a bomb under our nose knowing full well that they intend to use it on Israel and even Americans, and Israel is asked to allow nuclear inspectors in. The enemies are left alone to build a weapon of mass destruction and our only true friend in the middle east is asked to share its nuclear agenda AND arsenal with the world.
Israel has officially been a sovereign state since 1948 and has proven highly capable of running its own affairs as well as defending its borders. They need our support not our finger pointing and ordering around.
Last time the Jews were told what to do, where to go and how to surrender their property about 70 years ago, it didn’t end too well, did it? Not to mention when were told to stay within the Pale of Settlement in eastern Europe and not to mention when Queen Isabella of Spain told us to leave and kept our property, not to mention the Crusades, not to……well you get the idea! I beg the world and the UN to stay out of Israel’s business and quit trying to micromanage Israel lest you end up mismanaging them!

My Friend: the world has a very short memory. However, the Lord God in heaven does not. In the days, weeks, months possibly years ahead. The world will increase in its hatred of Israel. Fear not for what are these nations compared to God! For I would rather stand one against the world and with God. Then with the world against God!
The time of the end is drawing near. Soon this will pass. Nations shall bow and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord. Come Oh Jesus come !
Agreed, Thx for the encouragement. Be blessed!
As I spend more and more time studying, learning and speaking with a very “strong” Messianic Jew, I am increasingly upset at how neglegent our current administrations is towards Israel. The politicians have turned their backs on Israel but “the people of America” have not.
We continue to support and pray for Israel. Thank you for keeping us informed. We don’t get the REAL news on regular TV.
Blessings to all
As the world comes against Israel it is destroying itself!
Moses chose to be mistreated along with the people of God rather than to enjoy the pleasures of sin for a season. He chose suffering for the sake of Messiah over all the treasures of Egypt(the world). We arm ourselves with the same attitude. I stand firm in this. Do you? Can you drink this cup? Are you willing to embrace the land of divine destiny seeing a glimpse of the end from the beginning. God will sift and sanctify present Israel. The nations of dogs that circle the land barking away their vile lies will face swift judgment. I think the Lord mentioned something about “fire” while he faced his “baptism” in this corrupted world.
