Well folks, I guess I’m going to get political in this post …. with all the biased reporting going on in the media, I felt the need to register my support for Israel and the truth. I’m really glad to see that the voices that are pro-Israel are getting louder in the continuing conflict . However, I’m also grieved when naive and uninformed christians condemn Israel on the say-so of Islam. Anti-semitism is in full flow again it seems.
The media in general and the BBC in particular have always shown their dislike of Israel. For years now Jeremy Bowen has been demonising Israel in his reporting. And apparently the BBC among others will be broadcasting an appeal by DEC [Disasters Emergency Committee ] for Gaza today, having previously refused to do so. Today the BBC stated ” The BBC will continue to report impartially in our coverage of the story in the Middle East” – are they kidding? Their idea [or deceit] of unbiased reporting is to show one-sided graphic images and distressing scenes from sometimes ‘staged’ events together with voice- overs giving statistics, comparing casualty numbers as if that all proves Israel is the aggressor and guilty party- deliberately terrorising the innocent. In the interests of ‘balance’ and BBC non-partisanship , a token Israeli family or govt. spokesperson is tacked onto the end or beginning of the reports. No real, serious attempt is made to understand or report accurately the true situation. it is all taken at face value, which suits Hamas just fine.
The world is ‘up in arms’, ironically, because of the reported loss of innocent lives and the appalling suffering of women and children. But has the media been fair and honest in it’s reporting? An Israel Defense Forces[IDF] spokesman says of the casualty figures: ” the UN numbers being reported are by and large based on the Gaza Health Ministry – run by Hamas” and ” when militants are brought to hospital, they are brought in civilian clothing, obscuring terrorist affiliations”. There also appears to be video evidence on youtube of ‘staged’ dead body scenarios by Hamas – so who would we rather trust? Mosab Hassan Yousef, now a Christian, said in an interview :” They don’t care about the lives of Palestinians, or of Israelis or of Americans – they don’t care about their own lives”
Before I ever became a Christian , I too used to believe what the media said about the State of Israel and it’s supposed oppression of the Palestinian people. I always wondered why Israel, themselves so terribly terrorised and persecuted ,would act in the same way towards others – they of all people should show compassion shouldn’t they? But, like the rest of the world I never understood the absolute deception that engulfs the world and the satanic influence behind it all. Why would a tiny democratic country like Israel command such hatred ? Why is the world anti-Israel and not anti-terrorist? Who is the true attacker or defender here? Has Israel not the right that every country has to defend itself against attack?
Hypocrisy is at it’s height when we make one rule for ourselves and another for Israel! Would we expect our own govt. to take appropriate action if another country bombarded us with rocket fire or would we just sit back and let rockets fall where they will? Did we do that when Germany attacked us? Israel would be very foolish if she ignored the situation – it would be suicide !
Now, the US President is authorising air strikes on Iraq – but hey, that’s ok isn’t it – because ISIS could threaten US interests and Personnel in that country …. BUT – the US wouldn’t intervene in Syria, even though the ‘red line of using chemical weapons’ had been crossed. So – self interest is the crossing line after all then? US assets etc must be protected at all costs.
It is well documented that Islam seeks the destruction of Israel, but they also want to build an Islamic Caliphate everywhere in the world – hence Muslims entrench themselves in democratic countries that they really despise. Where they gain local political power their aim is to impose Sharia law for all. They would force all people to become Muslim if they could. And why were they allowed to block the Blackwall tunnel with their Gaza protests? And Tower Hamlets seems to be a Muslim enclave these days….
Israel is a tiny democracy in the Middle East and poses no threat to anyone – she is in a land historically given to her by Jehovah God [ see my previous Post], the God of the Bible, Jews and Christians. Islam follows the ‘god’ Allah and the religion of Islam where love and mercy do not exist.
Our country’s collaboration with the madness of political correctness reared it’s ugly head again recently with the arrest of Paul Weston, [Liberty GB] because he publicly quoted from Winston Churchill’s book, The River War, published in 1899. It set out Churchill’s views on Islam and it’s threats to societies. How times have changed eh? I daresay eventually quoting from the Bible will be banned , because it speaks truth and is far removed from ‘political correctness’. But then , the Christian gospel has always been an offense to those who have no love of the truth.
I admire those who are of a high public profile who are willing to speak out in defense of Israel’s position eg Melanie Phillips and I’m so pleased to see that Rev.TV is making a stand too – good on ‘em I say!
Although I haven’t put any specific links here – an appropriate google search will find most of what I’ve stated if you want to check anything out.
Thank God we know the end of the story and evil will not triumph over Israel … primarily because God will fulfill His own purposes and bring glory to His name with the return of Christ.
May God bless and keep you in these troubled times, Eileen
