And presumably the latter is right. Well whats the difference? both of them have innocent blood on their hands.
On the palwatch website - which you seem to ignore - I saw something remarkable: a talkshow host asked a girl who appeared to be 5 years old, ''How many Jews did your mommy kill?'' the little girl held up her hand with 4 fingers extended. The interviewer exclaimed, ''Praise Allah!'' and the little girl beamed a big smile. Another show, another child: a boy of about 8 is asked, ''What do you want to do when you become a man?'' The boy answered, ''A martyr.'' What kind of sick society produces such children? Do you really think Israel is to blame for creating this hate?
As for drone strikes in Pakistan and you living in fear, these have nothing to do with the present conflict. Your empathy with the people of Gaza is muddying the waters...but I understand you. I used to work with prisonners: murderers, serial murderers and narcotics traffickers. I got to know many of these men and even enjoyed their company. But I always knew that these guys were responsible for their own incarceration. The police who arrested them were innocent; the Crown attorneys who prosecuted them were innocent; and the jailers who guarded them were innocent. My criminal acquaintances were responsible for their own incarceration.
Whether you like it or not, Gazans are solely responsible for their plight and they are now suffering the consequences of their poor choices.
Like FL, I worked with criminals and some of the worst too. They are responsible for their own actions and seek to blame others to justify what they do. Soon, in the USA terrorist will hide behind civilians and began crimes here. One thing I learned in the field of criminal justice is that pure evil indeed exist and often Good has to war openly against it in the most brutal fashion to stop its spread. Book of Revelation describes this very thing.
Evil pervades in Gaza and from infants onward all youth are corrupted by this evil and so an entire population, yet, we in the west think this is impossible as the west thinks all people are basically good. Sorry, that is wrong - the evil of Islam's hate toward Christians and Jews knows no bounds. It is being unleashed in Iraq and in Gaza as well. These folks have you in their sights, and train their children with reckless hate. They know a good photo op and how to photo shop out the rocket launch form a crowded market, make the people stay, so when the counter battery fire hits, the news cameras can blame Israel for killing a few innocent but many hate filled civilians - all martyrs for the glory of Islam. Evil knows no bounds.
Next regarding the false claim that the nation of Israel is illegitimate and came about not by God's hand but by human beings more powerful than sovereign God...
Isaiah 11:11, 12 says this: It shall come to pass in that day That the Lord shall set His hand again the second time To recover the remnant of His people who are left, From Assyria and Egypt, From Pathros and Cush, From Elam and Shinar, From Hamath and the islands of the sea. 12 He will set up a banner for the nations, And will assemble the outcasts of Israel, And gather together the dispersed of Judah From the four corners of the earth. NKJV
So what if God chose the ubber-rich to to help the Jews establish a homeland form midst the countries that desired to kill them all 1933-1945. Now, what I am hearing form some on this board is that God had nothing to do with Israel becoming a nation again the second time because it was those like the Rothchild's who made it happen - not God. If then if that is true then, how can God really be sovereign? A sparrow cannot fall unless by God's design yet a whole nation can appear without God's hand in it at all? I am thankful God is not evil but rather will rid the world of true evil soon enough - come Lord Jesus.
You know what I find amazing is how God moved Cyrus's heart to release the Jews and gave them the funds and wealth to re-establish the Nation during the first regathering. So why can't he move the hearts of the wealthy to do so again to save a race of people from genocide amongst a world that hates them back into their own homeland just as God decreed? God hasn't forsaken all the Jewish people, he made a everlasting covenant with them. Let's not also forget, as Christians, our heads are on the chopping block of Islam too as are all free people...
Pure evil plays people, please don't forget that, and in Gaza pure evil - Hamas - are playing the world for fools.
Isa 5:20 Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; Who put darkness for light, and light for darkness; Who put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! NKJV
