It is quite interesting that I read an article put out by The New York Times on October 17, 2015, by Jodi Rudoren, about how the violent Palestinians, who incessantly attack Jews, are “frustrated” because the Israelis placed an “ugly barrier” in their neighborhood, insinuating that the onslaught of brutal and deadly terror attacks waged against Israelis since last year continues because the Israelis “frustrate” the Palestinians!
The article was an outrage – justifying the murders and terror attacks against Israelis by Palestinians because of “frustration.”
I was also taken aback when I later read an article published by The Times of Israel on January 26, 2016, about UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon’s comments against Israel during a UN Security Council meeting. Ban Ki-moon had the audacity to say, regarding the Palestinian terror attacks against Israelis, “It is human nature to react to occupation.” He clearly inferred that the Palestinians were reacting in a manner, committing terrorist acts, that anyone would because of Israel’s “occupation.”
The Israelis are not “occupying” any part of Israel. Israel is the Jewish State and that is not negotiable, no more negotiable than the United States is to Americans!
How dare Ban try to justify acts of terror due to “frustration!”
Prime Minister Netanyahu responded very astutely when he said, “There’s no justification for terror; the Palestinians want to destroy Israel.”
I also couldn’t help but notice that when Netanyahu and Ban spoke during a press conference on October 20, 2015, as Prime Minister Netanyahu spoke first of the violence and murders perpetrated against Israelis, Ban consistently cleared his throat, interrupting Netanyahu’s speech; but when it came Ban’s turn to speak, he spoke clearly, without clearing his throat, during his entire talk. Ban was obviously rudely interrupting Netanyahu’s comments in a very crude and childish manner. This, coming from the United Nation’s Secretary General, is outlandish, but it is also spiritual and evil.
One might ask where Ban was educated, or perhaps what has happened to his ability to think and act rationally.
That isn’t really the issue here. Well-educated people are acting like imbeciles throughout the world when it comes to Israel. Why do you suppose that is?
The Holy Word of God tells us,
“Do you not know that to whom you yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants you are to whom you obey, whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness?” Romans 6:16.
Those who do not serve the One and only true God, by default, are servants of satan, and they will do satan’s bidding, no matter how ignorant, dim-witted, or illogical.
This is a spiritual battle being raged against Israel; the servants of satan against the chosen people of the Most High God, His firstborn (Exodus 4:22).
Ban’s statements were outrageous and nonsensical.
When I read The New York Times article in October 2015, I thought Rudoren’s statements were outrageous and lacked the simple aptitude of any journalist. Albeit, after reading about Ban Ki-moon’s comments from the UN Security Council meeting, I realized that the globalists and the media are conspiring to turn the entire world against Israel.
Ban’s statements mimicked exactly the comments made by Jodi Rudoren in The New York Times article last year. The same type of rhetoric coming from both sources painted an ugly conspiracy – not coincidence. Ban and Rudoren couldn’t be that dim-witted independently; there had to be a link between the mainstream news and the UN’s position.
The Prophet Zechariah wrote thousands of years ago,
“Behold, the Day of the Lord comes and your spoil shall be divided in the midst of you, for I will gather all nations to Jerusalem to battle, and the city shall be taken, and the houses rifled, and the women ravished, and half of the city shall go into captivity, and the residue of the people shall not be cut off from the city. Then shall the Lord go forth and fight against those nations, as His day of battle…But it shall be one day, which shall be known to the Lord, not day, nor night, but it shall come to pass that at evening time it shall be light…And the Lord shall be King over all the earth. In that day shall there be one Lord, and His name one…And this shall be the plague wherewith the Lord will smite all the people that have fought against Jerusalem. Their flesh shall consume away while they stand upon their feet, and their eyes shall consume away in their holes, and their tongues shall consume away in their mouth” Zechariah 14:1-3, 7, 9, 12.
That sounds like a bit of a nuke there, doesn’t it? The description of this nuclear blast against the enemies of Israel was penned about 2,500 years ago!
The Prophet Zechariah foretold that all nations would go to battle against Jerusalem. God allows those who have such a vehement hatred for Israel, to gather against Jerusalem in that great day of battle, which is coming soon.
While looking at the news headlines periodically, we can even see the mindset and gearing up for this battle against Jerusalem.
God promised in His Holy Word that Israel, once he became a nation again in the latter days, would not be uprooted from his land ever again (Ezekiel 38-48).
