Just walk onto the train, walk into prison camp, walk right into gas chamber.....I don't comprehend this flatline brain dead passive appeasement.
“While we find shocking the blatant Islamophobia in the ads and strongly condemn this vicious hate speech, we also condemn ongoing governmental policies of racial and religious profiling,” emphasized director of Jewish Voice for Peace, Rebecca Vilkomerson, whose group is also a member of the JAI Coalition. “For example, the New York City Police Department (NYPD) has been engaged in police surveillance of Muslims that has flagrantly violated the community’s civil and human rights.
The title says it all about them.
THE NAZIS AND THE ISLAMO NAZIS WOULD HAVE LOVED THESE JEWS. THEY STILL DO!
Most Israelis must realize that the whole world is against them (and us) now for what they are doing in Palestine. Even Kissinger is saying Israel might not last another 10 years. They commit WAR CRIMES and get away with it. Dropping white phosphorus is against international law and they just did that recently.
They are building settlements in land that doesn't belong to them. I'm sorry to disagree but look at the deaths and see who is killing the most people. It isn't Hamas and it isn't even close.
If I were Israeli I'd vote against Netanbombyou. He's a mad dog.
How many Israelis believe in Jesus? A very small %
and they and Christians are persecuted in Israel.
The messianic Jews are to be supported....the others ...not so much
My loyalty is with them and Jesus. Even the Muslims respect Jesus and don't say he's in HELL in boiling excrement....you guys don't know what is in the Talmud evidentially.
The pharisees were Jesus enemy....he called them SONS OF SATAN. The prevailing form of Judaism being practiced in Israel is from them. When they were ran out of Israel and settled in Babylon they adopted many aspects of the pagan religion. Read the Talmud.
I invite you to come visit us Israeli Jews here in Israel. You might be surprised to find that we're not the monsters the media (often times biased and anti-Semitic without substance, like in the times running up to Hitler) has led you to believe ...
We need to be careful not to generalized when we talk about Judaism., yes, I have heard of Jews for Jesus...we must not forget that there are thousands of Messianic jews in Israel and all over, God is in control and He wil lhave his way with them as the scriptures tell us. They will recognize whom they have pierced, Yeshua will revealed Himself to them at the right time. He is married to the backslider (israel).Israel is the appleof God's eye! Christians from this country travel there all the time andI have not heard of any fatalities while they are thre, we must not lump all of the bad jews in one basket, just like there aare many of so-called Christians that only give Christinaity a bad name.
Alexandra I don't think that the MAJORITY of Jews in Israel are monsters....but I sure think your leaders are. The problem with the people is the same problem with U.S. citizens....they just haven't woken up to reality and keep electing the wrong leaders. Blind, lost and deceived.
What I will not tolerate from anyone is, regardless if it is politically correct or not, is the hateful portrayal of Jesus. Anyone that hates Jesus is not my friend or ally. We are in a spiritual battle now....good and evil. Everyone must chose a side.
There are as many bloodthirsty Christians here as there are Jews in Israel. To me neither one of them is authentic.
Yes Ivonne I do believe that God will work with them all in HIS own time but until they come around I will not condone either of these ideologies because they are of Satan.
My Jewish friend didn't accept Christ either but I pray she does so that she will be spared the destruction that will surely come on all those who deny Christ. She is a really good person. I don't see the loving, tolerant Jewish people in with the Zionist government either. I think a lot of Jews are apalled by their actions....as the original post points out they are not haters. That's good is it not?....so why criticize them for seeing the light?....for wanting peace? It's contrary to Jesus' teachings for us to do that as well.
As far as being anti semetic that term has been misused to the point it's irrelevant. Most Arabs are semetic too and very few Jews in Israel are actually of Hebrew bloodlines....most are not semitic. I've done my homework. I've read DNA studies and skull morphology studies and the conclusion is the same. Don't believe me? Research it yourself.
Judaism is a religion not a bloodline. Anyone can be a Jew. I personally believe in the New Testament of Christ so I will never convert. If people want to follow that religion it's up to them but what I RESENT is the effect Zionism is having on OUR COUNTRY.....also our culture. You saw the video of prominent Jewish comedians openly mocking Christ. Do you approve of that?
If these Jews in this article above are against Islamophobia it tells me that they would likely be tolerant of Christians too. Why put them down? Isn't that what Jesus taught LOVE THY NEIGHBOR? It seems to me that these Jews are better than most Christians because they are practicing the golden rule.
Too few Christians and Jews follow Jesus teachings....still living in the old testament of smiting the enemy. I prefer to let GOD do the smiting. He is fully capable of seperating the goats from the sheep.
This is just as offensive as the Zionist government.
Soros is not really a Jew...of Jewish heritage maybe, but as a teenager he worked with the Nazis to take Jewish people's land....his name isn't even authentic.
Pamela Gellar is not a real Christian either....I think she is a fake....inciting hatred is not the way to convert people to Christ....living as an example is. Many Arabs and Jews are being converted to Jesus. That's what all this hate is about on all sides....to try and stop that.
I don't hate Jews, Muslims, Hindus, Budhists or any other religion....I just see it as lost souls....now why would any religion want to kill others if they don't convert?...then there is no chance of redemption for them.
Who would I wish to see in HELL?
An open letter to European countries
You summoned our ambassadors to be reprimanded over the most natural thing on earth: settling our own country. You've got it wrong. We never settled on "occupied Palestinian territory." This is our country, the Jewish people's only homeland. We didn't come to Israel because of the pogroms or the Holocaust. We didn't ask you to do us any favors "at the Palestinians' expense" because other countries had a centuries-long hobby of destroying, killing and wiping out Jews.
We came home because it was what we wanted, with all our souls, for generations. We never gave up the dream of returning to Zion. No matter where on earth they were, Jews prayed facing toward Zion. Three times a day they asked to be allowed to behold the return to Zion with their own eyes. Even as they thanked God every time they ate bread, they always prayed in grace after meals: "Have mercy on Zion" and "Build Jerusalem speedily, in our own time." At the happiest moment of their lives, groom and bride swore the oath of Zion’s exiles, "If I forget you, O Jerusalem, let my right hand forget itself." Even during the exile, the cycle of the Jewish year was set according to the agricultural seasons in the land of Israel. Our people started returning to our land in steadily-growing groups over a hundred years before the Zionist movement was established.
And the land kept faith with its own. It never accepted another nation. After we were exiled, no state ever existed here. Most of the land remained desolate for centuries. Nomads passed through it. After the Second Temple was destroyed in the first century C.E., many Jews remained there. They survived the Christian occupation until the seventh century, when the Muslims occupied the land and gave the Jews there two choices: conversion to Islam or exile. Those who cleaved to the God of Israel went into exile. Those who cleaved to the land of Israel converted to Islam. They lived like the anousim — forced converts — of Spain for a generation or two and then were assimilated. What a historical irony — the real old-timers among the Arabs in Israel have Jewish roots. Most of the rest arrived after we started coming back home. Like the Muslim immigrants in your countries, Muslims from the region came to the land of Israel seeking work. Many of them arrived here when the British conquered the country.
The British behaved cruelly toward the Jews and prevented them from returning home. But they paid no attention to the Arabs of the Middle East, who entered Israel unhindered. Incidentally, in 1948, many of the Arabs left Israel on the advice of their leaders, who told them to stay away until they had finished with the Jews. For them, the United Nations changed the definition of a refugee: anyone who had lived in the land of Israel two years before 1948. You understand that during the first half of the twentieth century, hundreds of thousands of Arabs arrived here, and to this day they claim the "right of return." Dear Europeans, you too have a part in this farce.
2. Palestine — actually, Palaestina — is the name the Romans gave to the region in the second century C.E. to wipe out all traces of the connection between the Jews and their land. The Arabs of the area eagerly adopted this Roman name that recalled the Philistines, those seafaring nations that had invaded Canaan a thousand years before. They also adopted the Roman intention of wiping out all connection between the Jews and their land. Much of the time, they also tried to wipe out all connection between the Jews and their heads. They envied you your history.
You presume to try to solve the conflict between us and the Muslim world, but you can't even deal with the Muslim occupation of your own cities. The day isn't far when millions of Muslim immigrants will rise up to demand a part of your country: Islamic autonomy, the partition of the land or — if you persist in not having children — an Islamic takeover accomplished by completely proper democratic and politically correct means. What will you do then? Your survival instincts were dulled long ago. You think that if you cooperate with the Arab lie, you'll buy yourselves peace and quiet. You think that if you sacrifice us on the altar of your short-term interests, you'll be left alone. Is your memory really that short? Are you really so deaf that you don't hear the mob growling in your streets?
You've confused our history with yours. You were the colonizers, the ones who robbed countries that did not belong to you, drew impossible borders that crossed through tribal territory and united opposites (see Syria, Lebanon and Iraq) and condemned whole regions to endless war, and you planned to take advantage of your unfortunate subjects for as long as you could.
What we did was to come back home. We're not foreign colonizers. We're the sole legal heirs of this land. We didn't come back to Tel Aviv, but mainly to the places where our nation was born and took shape: Judea, Samaria and Jerusalem. You know the Bible, right? A person can't be an occupier in his own home.
3. Still, we've tried many times over the past hundred years to reach a compromise with our neighbors over our own land. After all, we're rational people. Our ancient law teaches that when two people who take hold of a cloak at the same time, each one saying "It's all mine," they should share it. We never believed the Arab claim that "it's all mine." This land was never theirs. Not content with the enormous amount of land all around us, they also coveted the poor man's lamb of the Jews, our country. Nevertheless, we were willing to compromise on a room or two of the whole house, but that didn't change anything. Our neighbors' openly-stated goal was not an independent state, but the complete destruction of the Jews on their own land. They never intended to give up their fantasy of destroying tiny Israel, even with the reckless borders Ehud Olmert offered them in 2008. That applies even more strongly to the borders drawn in Oslo by the team of dreamers in Rabin's government. What they couldn't accomplish by violence, they tried to gain by negotiating. When they got tired of that, they went back to blowing themselves up in our cities. They went back to negotiating once again, and during breaks they went into the next room and fired rockets at our kindergartens. It's a kind of hobby. Freedom fighters, you know ...
Now you reprimand us for our intention to build housing units on our own land. What would this land be without our people? What would Jerusalem be without our nation? What would Western civilization be without the Jews? Israel is the advance post of the West. Islam understands that. That is why it is fighting us and using you against us. The return to Zion is not a matter for the Jewish people only; It is of interest to you as well, esteemed Europeans. Without the return to Zion, you too will perish.
Rhonda, Jesus was a Jew, a kosher, Shabbat-keeping Jew. A Jew through and through.
Do you honestly believe He would have said to the American Christians they should:
... cooperate with the Arab lie, you'll buy yourselves peace and quiet. Sacrifice [Israelis] on the altar [for the] short-term interests of Americans, [so that Americans can] be left alone..?
Turn a blind eye; it's too dangerous helping that 'man' under attack. I'll send the Good Samaritan to take care of my beaten up Jews in Israel ... (and if there are no good samaritans left, I'll do it myself ..)?
not cooperate .....just not interfere, bomb, kill wantonly.....it's not our fight.
As for the claim to the land ---that is false being that most are not of Hebrew bloodlines. What claim therefore? They are not the old testament Hebrews. "Jew" is a term that evolved when the bible started being printed. In the original Greek and Aramaic versions of the bible there is no such term as Jew. Jesus was a Judean. When Judea ceased to exist they came up with the term Jew--- short for Judean.
Yes Jesus did practice the religion but it is much different today.... but He also enraged the religious leaders of His time by claiming to be the Messiah, healing people on the Sabbath, and clearing the temple. And in the end they said "Give us Barrabbas".
Yes I agree that the Jews have been treated horribly but God scattered them for disobedience didn't He? We will know if it is God's will once we see them gain the whole territory won't we? I am not so sure if that is God's will. I think that when the broke the covenent with God they lost claim to Israel. I think Jesus will come back and claim Israel and not all Jews will be saved....in fact most will perish. That's what the bible says. I don't understand why Christians even wish for this to happen to them. I would rather give them more time to repent BEFORE Jesus comes back.
Yes you are correct we drove the Indians out of the U.S. and took it over....something I'm not proud of.
The treaty Israel signed should be honored. At the beginning there were 500,000 Jews and 1,500,000 Palestinians but the Jews were given 2/3 of that land--and the best land-- in the Balfor agreement and still they want the Greater Israel which will mean invading other countries too.
I wouldn't worry about it if I were you......
If God is with Israel, then who could stand against her?
I just don't want us to waste our blood and treasure fighting wars for Israel.
"I will bless those that bless Israel! says the Lord.
He made that promise to Abraham specifically....thee not ye (plural)
American Christians who really want to be a blessing to all the children of Abraham (Jews and Arabs) need to realize that they do not have to render blind, knee-jerk support to the most extremist elements of Zionism, or to those who are actively trying to foment massive wars in the Middle East that would be contrary to the interests of the Israeli people. Not everyone is going to agree that stirring up a war to get 2/3 of all Jews killed is a good thing for the Jews.
Nor should we forget that our Prime Directive as Christians is found in the Great Commission. Our mission is to evangelize, baptize and teach, not to try to hasten Christ’s coming by agitating war and violence in the Middle East.
Zionism is based on a total misunderstanding of what the Bible teaches. It is true that God gave Palestine to Hebrews in ancient times. But the Bible teaches that their possession of the land was under a conditional covenant with Jehovah. If the Hebrews disobeyed their God, they would lose the land. This is clearly taught in Genesis 17:9-14, Exodus 19:4-5, Leviticus 26:40-45, Deuteronomy 7:12, Joshua 23:15-16, 1 Kings 9:6-9, 2 Chronicles 7:19-22, Jeremiah 34:12-22, Ezekiel 33:23-29, Matthew 21:43, etc.
When the Jews rejected their Messiah, God sent the Romans to dispossess the Jews from their land in 70 AD. This was God’s complete punishment on the Jews for crucifying Christ – therefore, the Jews today should not be persecuted for something that happened 2000 years ago. However, their former title deed on the land of Palestine is not abrogated.
The New Testament teaches that Christians are to focus on the heavenly Jerusalem, not the earthly one, John 4:21, Galatians 4:24-28, Hebrews 12:18-24. We are told in Hebrews 11:13-16 that even Abraham has no further interest in a restored Jewish state on earth, because he is in a much better place in heaven.
Christian Zionism is a movement that claims to be based on the Bible, but as we have seen, it is actually contrary to what the Bible teaches. All Christians should repudiate Zionism and should work for a peace settlement in the Middle East that will be of mutual benefit to Abraham’s Jewish and Arab children in Palestine.
(this isn't the whole article but supporting Zionism is not biblical nor Christian)
Israel did not get the major share of the mandate of Palestine. If you read history, the whole of trans-Jordan mandate of Palestine(now simply called Jordan) was given to the 'palestinians' in the first two-state solution.
Only around 1946/7 did they decide to once more under-divide the western part of mandate palestine into 'Israel' and 'Palestine'.
But as my earlier post clearly says, we Israeli Jews accepted to share with Arabs once more .. it was the Arabs who rejected the idea of sharing back then, and even today.
At least you and I agree on a single thing: "
I wouldn't worry about it if I were you......
If God is with Israel, then who could stand against her?
We do not worry, indeed we've Hashem, and a forever-covenant that bonds us to Him and to the land of Israel.
Thanks Ivonne for your kind blessing of Israel.

Abraham had 2 sons which were blessed
Arabs & the bible
There is a great future for the Arab countries that accept Jesus and for the reorganized State of Israel. There will be peace in the Middle East:
“In that day there will be a highway from Egypt and Assyria… in that day Israel will be a third with Egypt and Assyria, a blessing in the midst of the earth” (Isaiah 19:23-34).
The Bible is a book for people of all nations – that includes Arabs and Jews. Jesus Christ is a descendant of Abraham; but he is also the founder of the Christian relgion and “there is salvation in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved” (Acts 4:12). Arabs, like other Gentiles, and Israelis, too, can all become the true children of Abraham by believing the Bible and being baptized into the family of Jesus.
“For as many of you as were baptized into Christ have put on Christ…. And if you are Christ’s then you are Abraham’s offspring, heirs according to the promise” (Galatians 3:27-29).
Will YOU decide to become associated with Christ and become a true child of Abraham?
ARABS , JEWS AND CHRISTIANS LIVED IN HARMONY BEFORE 1948 FOR CENTURIES.....why can't they again?
I am not just blaming just Israel....the U.S. has a bad foreign policy as well. Some of the Arab countries do too. I'm just saying that in order to fulfill their destinies they are going to have to change. No good can come of all this killing and hatred. Like I said Abraham had 2 sons and they both received a blessing. I just don't believe there will ever be any peace until they both accept Jesus. The Arabs are at least respectful but they don't understand Jesus is their savior as neither do the Israelis. But progress is being made on both sides and more and more are turning to Jesus. That is my fervent wish for everyone to be saved.
Are Arabs not converted to Christianity? I know an Iranian family who is.
Give them as much time as we can give them by not supporting aggression.
Alexandra I certainly don't hold anything against Jewish people ---except for the ones who defame Christ. They are blasphemers to be prayed for but not supported.
My wish for them is salvation and hopefully peace. Following ungodly leaders is a treacherous path. Instead, love your fellow man and do unto others...
I hope one day you accept Jesus into your heart if you haven't already. It is written that ALL KNEES WILL BOW when Jesus comes back. Why not bow now and be saved?
I have wondered about how they rejected Christ as the Messiah because he didn't come as a warlord to save them & defeat their enemies, he came as a lamb to be sacrificed....but it says the 2nd time will be as a LION...will that turn their hearts to Jesus? Is it all just a matter of timing?
Can you answer that question?
Rhonda R:"ARABS , JEWS AND CHRISTIANS LIVED IN HARMONY BEFORE 1948 FOR CENTURIES.."
Arabs, Jews and Christians live in harmony in Israel AS WE SPEAK... it is our neighbouring countries who wish to wipe Israel out.
Son of Hamas who converted to Christianity speaks up:
I am a proud, British-born Muslim, and I love my country more than any other place on earth.
But, if for some reason, I had to leave, with my young family, and I was told that I must go and live in the Middle East, where would I decide to go?
Would I choose Dubai, with its vibrant city life and soaring skyscrapers?
Would I choose Saudi Arabia, a fabulously wealthy nation and the birthplace of the holy Prophet Mohammed?
There is only one place I could possibly go: Israel, the only nation in the Middle East that shares the same democratic values as Britain.
And the only nation in the Middle East where my family would feel the warm embrace of freedom and liberty.
Thus spoke Sajid Javid, MP for Bromsgrove since 2010 and, since September this year, economic secretary to the Treasury, addressing the 700 attendees at a business lunch of Conservative Friends of Israel last week.
Mr Javid, who is married to a Christian, observed:
In Britain, we are rightly very proud of our long history as a nation. But we are mere beginners compared to Israel, a nation that is governing itself in the same territory, under the same name, with the same religion, and the same language as it did 3,000 years ago. Now that’s what I call sustainability!
Israel is a country about which almost everyone has a passionate opinion — an opinion which they’re not usually shy about sharing, especially when that opinion is based on total ignorance.
If you want to have any chance of understanding the complexities of the Middle East, you can’t just read about Israel, you have to experience it.
Agreed...those of the seed of Abraham that are in Christ,shallbe blessed!Weare not talking here about the Zionist pr the extremits groups on either side. Not all Judeans will be saved, but the scriptures clearly says,that when Yeshua comes back they will acknowledge whom they had pierced!
Ivonne...You darn tootin they will acknowledge Jesus. They won't have a choice. Better that they start now as to not go through what is coming without Him.
Let's hope you never have to leave your country Alexandra, but I am wondering if any country is safe. As for Israel being open minded and fair I have read quite a different story that Muslims and Christians are 2nd class citizens. I also read that many Palestinian Christians have fled Gaza.
Billy Graham has preached all over the world yet he never had one of his famous revivals in Israel. Why is that?
You wrote: "I also read that many Palestinian Christians have fled Gaza.
...Why is that?"
Are you truly unaware that Gaza is 100% Judenfrei? So West Bank block A and most if not all of Israel's neighbouring countries?
It has NOTHING to do with Jews as to why Christians fled/flee from Gaza.
Are you also truly unaware of the current genocide of Christians from most if not all Arab countries, so too the genocide of Buddhists from Arab countries?
Are you again also unaware of the forced conversions to Islam in Gaza and other Arab countries of their few remaining Christians?
If you answer 'yes' to any or all of the above, then it is clear that you exclusively read islamic propaganda.
Here is what Pastor Dr Mike Evans, a Christian friend of Israel has to say:
While I’ve been here in Israel this week, the head of Hamas, Khaled Mashaal, made a rare public appearance in Gaza at a celebration marking the 25th anniversary of the founding of that evil terrorist organization dedicated to the destruction of Israel. He repeated the group’s vow to never recognize Israel and claimed that Israel has no right to any land at all. “From the sea to the river, from north to south, we will not give up any part of Palestine—it is our country, our right and our homeland,” Mashall said. “We are not giving up any inch of Palestine. It will remain Islamic and Arab for us and nobody else. Jihad and armed resistance is the only way.”
Can you imagine what it is like to have hundreds of thousands of terrorists living within a few miles of your home saying things like this about you? This is why I am here. The enemies of Israel are fully devoted to their evil work, and we must be just as devoted to doing good and defending Zion. Together we are telling the Jewish people, “You are not going anywhere…nor are we!”
That is why we hosted the wonderful Hanukkah party for Holocaust survivors that you made possible…as a public declaration of our support and love for the Jewish people. And that is why we MUST make the final payment on the Jerusalem World Center.
The Holy City is in the midst of celebrating Hanukkah this week. I am here to fast and pray for a miracle provision from God so that we can complete the purchase of the Jerusalem World Center. I urgently need your help right now to make the final payment on this amazing facility.
This beautiful building will be the largest property in the nation of Israel to be owned by US Bible-believers. It will be the first Christian museum in the nation to tell the story of Christian love, such as that of Corrie ten Boom's family in Haarlem, Holland. Their home was purchased in 1987 and restored in 1988 and is open today because of the Jerusalem Prayer Team and friends like you. I serve as chairman of the board.
In addition, this wonderful building in Jerusalem will be the headquarters for the Jerusalem Prayer Team worldwide. It will provide round-the-clock prayer for Jerusalem and the Jewish people in fulfillment of prophecy, and it will be the address for compassionate Christians who are reaching out to serve poor Jewish souls.
“I will bless those who bless thee...” (Genesis 12:3).
“Pray for the peace of Jerusalem, they shall prosper that love thee” (Psalm 122:6).
You and I are part of something that has eternal significance in the city on which the spotlight of Heaven shines. Heaven and earth met in Jerusalem and will meet again. Everything began prophetically and will end in the only city in the world in which God wrote His name.
Amen and Amen!
Israel’s supporters over the past few days have been voicing alarm at the prospect former Sen. Chuck Hagel is likely to be tapped by President Barack Obama as the nation’s next defense secretary .... Click here for full story
One thing that is very odd to me is how dual citizens can work at the Whitehouse or on any govt. agency. Rahm Emanuel and several others like Chertoff should never been appointed to administrative positions. The constitution at least is protecting us from having a president with divided loyalties.
I wouldn't worry too much about Hagel being firm with Israel. Obama is the one who really makes those decisions and he bows and scrapes. Just promised them 70 billion & shipped them bunker buster bombs.
He may dislike Netanbombyou personally but it's all a show he will back them 110 %. They all do what AIPAC tells them to do.
The reason being, there were a lot of Jewish rich people that backed him up in this election. Everything he does has a reason forit.
