Why Do The Nations Conspire Against Israel?

October 21, 2009

Antisemitism

Thousands of years ago the psalmist asked: “Why are the nations in an uproar, the peoples grumbling in vain? The earth’s kings are taking positions, leaders conspiring together, against Adonai and His anointed.” (Psalm 2:1-2) –Jews have asked this question every year since that time.

The psalm hints of another source for the ancient hatred that has always plagued the Jewish people. Anti-Semitism is far too ancient, too persistent, too well organized to have its origins in the mind of man, because it is the longest and deepest hatred of human history.

So, why do the nations always plot against the Jews? Why do the nations hate Israel?

The Jewish people’s existence defies all logic. They should have disappeared thousands of years ago. The most powerful nations in every generation planned their destruction, yet they have all disappeared and the tiny Jewish nation is still around.

The return of the Jews to their ancient Jewish homeland can’t be explained in logical terms. It is an event which was predicted thousands of years ago, yet it could not have happened logically. Jews from all over the world have been streaming into Israel. They rejuvenated their ancient language and fended off enemies who outnumbered them.

Today those enemies continue to seek their destruction. Israelis have been murdered by suicide bombers and rock throwers. They are presently under threat of nuclear attack. As if that wasn’t enough, Israel’s leaders insist upon pretending that they can live in peace with those who seek their destruction. Any other such nation would have perished long ago. Yet Israel grows and thrives. All of this is in defiance of logic.

We see a fulfillment of biblical Balaam’s prophecy: “It is a people that shall dwell alone, and shall not be reckoned among the nations.” (Numbers 23:9) The nation of Israel is not considered as part of the family of nations – when all nations are listed and arranged according to geographical affiliation – some in Europe, others in Asia and others in Africa – the Israeli nation is left outside.

There is a very simple explanation to this question. The Jewish people are physical proof of the existence of G-d. The nations hate G-D. Because they hate G-D, they also hate his word, the Torah, and his people, the Jews. After all, there is nothing quite so upsetting to the post-modern ear, as to hear of a universal standard of truth or a “chosen people.” It is this very fact which causes so many to hate the Jews. In this modern age of computers and cell phones we tend to forget and deny the concept of Creation. People have begun to believe that they are the creators and able to control what happens in the world. Even among the Jewish People there are those who prefer not to think about G-D. The very idea of a Jewish State – especially one located in the ancient Land of Israel – forces even atheists to take notice.

Israel reminds the sinful world of G-D’s rule, and of His laws. People today hate these ideas. Thus we see that anti-Semitism, at its heart, is anti-God and anti-Torah.

No other country in the world would as much as suggest building a new county upon its own soil, especially for enemies who seek its destruction. Israel’s leaders have fallen into a trap of their own making by engaging in a so-called “peace process” which, in fact, is a process of self destruction.

Yet, despite these leaders, and despite the overwhelming number of enemies who actively seek Israel’s destruction, the Jewish State continues not merely to exist, but to grow and thrive! This too is clear proof of Divine intervention. There is simply no other explanation.

No power on Earth can destroy Israel. Those who seek her destruction will themselves be destroyed.
The world, apart from Israel and G-D’s word, is lost and doomed. He alone will bring redemption and peace to Israel, and no power on Earth can prevent His Word from coming to pass.

The Greatest Lie Ever

October 5, 2009

medialies
I am sick and tired of the lies.

There was never a so called PLO land, and never will be. If you think this is an outlandish statement, please read on and decide for yourself.

If you go all the way back to the Stone Age and from there to the Israeli conquests from 1,200 – 1,000 BC — you will not find a “Palestinian” people. Much less a Palestinian nation that was in control of the Holy Land. If you search the history books, you will see that from 1,000 BC up until 587 BC the Jews struggled among themselves over the land, yet stayed in control of it. Later came the Persians then the Hellenists, and later, the Hasmoneans.

Then came the Romans. – To make a long story short, they had so much trouble with the Jews they ended up destroying everything Jewish that they could find. This even included changing the name of the geographical region from Israel to “Palestine”. This happened around 63 BC through 324 AD.

From that time forth everyone who lived in this land were called “Palestinians”. The Greeks, Persians, and even the Jews, were all called Palestinians. Much the same as those who live in the USA are all called Americans.

After the Romans came the Byzantines, the Crusaders, the Mamluks, and the Ottoman’s. In 1917 came the British who stayed in control of Palestine until 1948. During their stay in Palestine they even created a State for the Arabs (Palestinians) who lived here; – it’s called Jordan.

Then in May of 1948 G-D started to bring the Jews home, and ISRAEL BECAME A NATION ONCE AGAIN (Ezek. 37).

From 1948 until 1967 Egypt controlled the Gaza Strip and Jordan controlled the “so-called” West Bank, Samaria and Judea.

After the 1967 six day war this all changed, and Israel was once more in control of their mountains “Judea & Samaria” and more importantly their beloved Jerusalem.

I am sure you know all of this. But I want to make this very clear to everyone; there is one thing absent in all of the above. At no time did the “Palestinians” have control of this land.

It is also interesting to note that during the time span 1948 – 67 when Egypt and Jordan were in control, there was never any talk of a Palestinian State.

Excuse me, but why should the Palestinians have their “State” back, when they never had one to begin with? This is yet another Islamic lie, and part of their desire to control or kill Jacob.

When you hear them say the Jews are occupying Palestinian land, it is another of their lies. But what absolutely amazes me, is that no one is questioning their right to say it. “The West Bank is occupied Palestinian land.” This phrase is frequently repeated, as a given, by all the governments of the world and by the entire news media.

One of the problems here is that so few people know the history of the world.

This idea that the West Bank is occupied Palestinian land has been accepted by almost everyone. Yet it is, in fact, the greatest lie ever perpetrated on the whole of humanity.

And in the entire history of nations, Jerusalem was never the capital of any country other than that of ancient Israel and modern Israel. So how can there be a claim on Jerusalem as the capital of a state that never existed?

Jerusalem is not even mentioned in the Koran. Not once!

You don’t believe me?

Do your own home work and search the history books. – If you find the existence of a previous Palestinian state, please let me know.

Shalom – Lilo

Ahmadinejad A Self-Hating Jew?

Iranian leader Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has exasperated the world with incensed condemnations of Israel and his insistence that the Holocaust is a hoax, but could there be another reason behind his seeming hatred for the Jews?

According to a London Telegraph report, his ferocity may be overcompensation … for his own Jewish roots.

Examining a photo of the Iranian president holding aloft his identity card during the nation’s 2008 elections, the newspaper discovered Ahmadinejad’s original family name – prior to their conversion to Islam – was Sabourjian, a Jewish name meaning “cloth weaver.”

Ahmadinejad has not denied that his name was changed when his family moved to Tehran in the 1950s, but he has also never confirmed what that original name was.

A note on his identification papers, when magnified from the photo, however, suggests the man from Aradan, Iran, carried a common Jewish name from the region of his birth. “Sabourjian,” the Telegraph reports, is even on the list of reserved names for Iranian Jews compiled by Iran’s Ministry of the Interior.

“This aspect of Mr. Ahmadinejad’s background explains a lot about him,” commented Ali Nourizadeh of the Centre for Arab and Iranian Studies. “Every family that converts into a different religion takes a new identity by condemning their old faith.”

Nouizadeh told the Telegraph, “By making anti-Israeli statements, he is trying to shed any suspicions about his Jewish connections. He feels vulnerable in a radical Shia society.”

Ahmadinejad, the fourth of seven children to a man who worked as an ironworker, grocer, barber and blacksmith, moved with his family to Tehran was he was a small child. Reportedly, the family moved to seek better economic fortunes, but also took on the new, Islamic name.

A 2007 Congressional Research Service report lists the Iranian president’s original family name as “Saborjhian,” linking the name to the Farsi “sabor,” meaning “thread painter.”

Some biographers, including Joel C. Rosenberg, list Ahmadinejad’s original family name as “Sabaghian,” meaning “dye-master” in Persian.

But the Telegraph reports the name on his papers is “Sabourjian” and cites a London-based expert on Iranian Jewry, who says the “jian” ending is specifically Jewish.

“He has changed his name for religious reasons, or at least his parents had,” said the newspaper’s source. “Sabourjian is well known Jewish name in Iran.”

If Ahmadinejad is of Jewish ancestry, he has done much to distance himself from his heritage.

In a 2006 speech aired on the Iranian News Channel, Ahmadinejad listed alleged crimes by Israel against Palestinians while the crowd chanted, “Death to Israel! Death to Israel!”

Ahmadinejad responded, speaking of the Jewish people, “They have no boundaries, limits or taboos when it comes to killing human beings. Who are they? Where did they come from? Are they human beings? ‘They are like cattle, nay, more misguided.’ A bunch of bloodthirsty barbarians. Next to them, all the criminals of the world seem righteous.”

That same year, he said, “[Isreal] will be gone, definitely. You [Western powers] should know that any government that stands by the Zionist regime from now on will not see any result but the hatred of the people.”

At a U.N. meeting last month, the Iranian president denounced Israel for “genocide, barbarism and racism.”

“Yesterday, the man who calls the Holocaust a lie spoke from this podium,” responded Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu at the same U.N. summit. “A mere six decades after the Holocaust, you give legitimacy to a man who denies the murder of six million Jews while promising to wipe out the State of Israel, the State of the Jews. What a disgrace. What a mockery of the charter of the United Nations.”

The Telegraph reports it contacted the Israeli embassy in London for comment on Ahmadinejad’s birth name but was told it would not speak on the Iranian president’s background.

“It’s not something we’d talk about,” said Ron Gidor, a spokesman.
