Hi readers. Thanks for coming by for a read.
If Israel were a religious, rather than secular nation, pointing out THOU SHALT NOT STEAL is a commandment. But Israel deliberately chose to become a secular state. A state where Christians, Muslims and Jews would all be treated equally. Where stealing just ain’t all that big a deal if you can get by with it. If you’ve got heavier artillery than the folks you’re stealing from.
A friend of mine, a mainline Christian of US lineage, supports Israel and always has. He reads and believes the Israeli websites pointing fingers of blame away from Israel and carefully examining ‘what’s been done to Israel’ and the spotlighted victimized Israel loves to portray. Along with muted Holocaust innuendo so’s to keep him from examining Israeli reality. Using the tragedy of the camps to enrich themselves with stolen land.
Because US Christians have responded to Israel’s guilt-button pushing so long it’s almost impossible for a Christian to take an honest look at Israel without remembering Christian treatment of Jews throughout history and deluging Israel with cleansing forgiveness. For anything. Closing the eyes because Christians slaughtered Jews for 2000 years.
And Christians do so hope to see the Second Coming of Jesus. Who couldn’t overlook the stealing by Israel of the land the Temple of Jerusalem sat on so’s to hasten Jesus coming back? Stealing it back and killing any SOB Palestinian standing in the way of Jesus coming back. Nobody likes Palestinians anyway. Israel’s had a propaganda machine working 24/7 to make sure of that.
But that isn’t what Jesus would do, is it? Jesus don’t like stealing, even if it’s Jews doing it. Jesus don’t like killing, even if it’s Jews doing it.
If Jesus could somehow preemptively come back today without waiting for Israel to tear down that mosque and rebuild the Temple, what do you think he’d say?
- I think he might say Blessed are the peacemakers,
- I think he might say, put some teeth into enforcing International Law against them, same as you’ve done in other countries,
- I think he might say Boycott those bastards and quit selling them weapons to help them hold on to their ill-gotten gains.
- I think he might say, Shun them
- Because it’s the Christian thing to do.
Shunning Israel without reverting to keeping regular, honest Jews out of the country clubs or herding them into camps in the Christian countries ought to add some novelty to riding herd on International piracy by Israel.
