During the war against Hamas last summer, the world condemned Israel for defending herself against 3,500 Hamas rockets. Left wing actors were brokenhearted over Israel’s supposed ‘savagery’ (But silent over Hamas’ targeting civilians). Who can forget Penelope Cruz and Javier Bardam signing a letter condemning Israel of ‘genocide’.

“In the horror happening right now in Gaza there is no place for distance or neutrality… It’s hard to understand and impossible to justify. And it’s disgraceful that western countries are permitting such genocide.”Screen Shot 2015-04-26 at 4.42.55 PM

In truth Hamas had created a series of tunnels and were planning a mass murder of Israelis in the nearby area. The Israeli Defense Forces prevented that only because Hamas got impatient and started a war.

Palestinians are Being Murdered However

Here is what is amazing! Palestinians are experiencing a real genocide and no one cares. Have you even heard one peep from Hollywood or MSNBC about Yarmouk?

Yarmouk Palestinian Refugee camp is under siege by Assad and under attack by ISIS. It has shrunk from 160,000 Palestinians to 18,000 in three years. Tens of thousands fled, thousands have been murdered, and many have died of starvation. Many of the remaining Palestinians are being prevented from leaving Yarmouk by ISIS, who instead is forcing them to be human shields… sound familiar?

Yarmouk has been described as an open-air prison.

Claiming that rebels were using Yarmouk, Assad’s forces laid siege to Yarmouk, leaving the residents without food, water and medical supplies.[i]

Where is the Outrage?

Israel tries to stop Hamas from sending rockets against her, and the world is livid. Arabs kill Palestinians in cold blood and hardly a peep. In fact, you would think that President Abbas of the Palestinian Authority would be alerting the world to this injustice—after all, these are the very same Palestinians whom he wants to return to Israel. These are his people! One of the primary sticking points in preventing a peace deal with Israel is Israel’s refusal to allow those Arabs who fled Israel in 1948 to return. (They fled in hopes that we would be destroyed. The Arabs who stayed are Israelis citizens.)

The silence is deafening!

  • Where are the college campus demonstrations for the Palestinians Massacre in Yarmouk?
  • Where is the media outrage over tens of thousands of deaths and refugees?
  • Where are the Boycott, Divestment, Sanction groups?
  • Where are the Palestinian leaders?

The fact is, they only really care about Palestinian deaths if it comes from Israel’s self-defense. The deliberate murdering of Palestinians by ISIS or Syria doesn’t seem to prick their consciences. How many of them even know Yarmouk exists?

Arabs Lives Matter?

What is being taught here is that Arab lives matter, unless other Arabs want to kill them—then they don’t. The U.N. and even the U.S. are fine with Arabs murdering Palestinian women and children, but God-forbid, a Palestinians stubs his toe in Gaza. That will release the indignation of the U.N. Human Rights Council.

The hypocrisy was on full display during the war last summer in Gaza. There is ample proof that Hamas used churches, mosques and rooftops of residential buildings to launch attacks. They encouraged and coerced Gazans to gather on rooftops, manipulating them by telling them it will please Allah.

 

Hamas murdered 20 Palestinians war activists in cold blood and just as many supposed collaborators, often chopping their heads off and then dragging them around the city tied to motorcycles. An effective tool for instilling fear.

But no one cares about these poor people. Not unless you can blame Israel. Then, and only then, is it news.

Thousands of Palestinians have died in a real genocide in Yarmouk—but the world only cares about Arab deaths if they can somehow blame Israel. In fact, Arabs only care about Arab deaths, if it can be a tool against Israel. They will even sacrifice their women and children in exchange for propaganda against Israel.

The genocide in Yarmouk makes Israel’s self-defense campaign in Gaza look like a picnic, but no one cares. Be honest, before this article had you even heard about Yarmouk?

Hillary Clinton claims to be Christian. Barack Obama claims to be a Christian. And I am claiming to a brain surgeon! Any takers? Screen Shot 2015-04-26 at 4.42.55 PM

You see just saying, “I am brain surgeon,” doesn’t mean I can perform brain surgery. I would need to back it up with a diploma and years of training. In the same way, no American will get elected President claiming, “The Bible is outdated, it’s just a bunch of stories. I am humanistic socialist at heart!” Sure the left will have no problem with that, but you can’t win without independents. So the candidates claim to be Christian—despite having very unchristian positions.

However in a day where anti-Biblical behavior is celebrated, where Bruce Jenner is called a Hero (not for winning the decathlon, but for identifying as a woman), it is only a matter of time before politicians began to boldly speak against the Bible.

Hillary Clinton is testing the waters. It is one thing to take anti-biblical positions, but to publicly call Americans to forsake the Bible is too much. Giving an address at the Women in the World Summit last week, she made this statement:

Far too many women are denied access to reproductive health care and safe childbirth, and laws don’t count for much if they’re not enforced. Rights have to exist in practice — not just on paper. Laws have to be backed up with resources and political will. And deep-seated cultural codes, religious beliefs and structural biases have to be changed.

 

It used to be, you were considered compassionate, caring and humble to embrace the values of the Bible. Now you are the enemy… according Secretary Clinton and President Obama. It is only going to get worse.

Jonathan Cahn is not only one of the most significant prophetic voices from the Messianic movement, he is one of most significant from the entire body of Believers. He speaks with honestly, passion, conviction and boldness. This short video is extremely powerful.

 

Bridgette Gabriel grew up in Lebanon thinking Israelis were savages. That is, until a family member needed emergency medical treatment in Israel. She was shocked to see the true nature of Israelis and has now made it her life work to expose the radicals. She is one of the most powerful voices in the world today.

“I was amazed that the Israelis were providing medical treatment to Palestinian and Muslim gunmen…These Palestinians and Muslims were sworn, mortal enemies, dedicated to the destruction of Israel and the slaughter of Jews. Yet, Israeli doctors and nurses worked feverishly to save their lives. Each patient was treated solely according to the nature of his or her injury. The doctor treated my mother before he treated an Israeli soldier lying next to her because her injury was more severe than his. The Israelis did not see religion, political affiliation, or nationality. They saw only people in need, and they helped.”

If you register by May 15th (Israel’s Birthday) you will receive $100 off your trip. Just go to www.LivingStonesIsrael.com. Hope to see you in October. “If you have the opportunity to go to Israel with the Cantors, DO NOT MISS IT! It was the trip of a lifetime…” Anita, Raleigh

 

Moti Cohen, our assistant congregational leader at Tiferet Yeshua, participates in a ministry called Hand in Hand, that unites Messianic Israeli youth and young people from German-speaking countries. They travel both in Israel and Germany, and even visit the Death Camps in Poland.

I don’t know how to start this journal. It’s true that this trip started and ended in Israel, but as the trip progressed so many things happened. I remember the warm welcoming we received in Germany. It was late at night, we entered this big saloon where all the German/Austrian/Swiss youth’s families stood. There was excitement in the air even though we didn’t know each other! But we did know that we were going to go through this journey together in the following weeks: Germans, Israelis, Austrians, Swiss and One God who is with us all. Continue Reading…
