While Jews are not allowed to pray on their holiest site, and police make sure no Israeli flags are taken up there, muslims seem to have no problem bringing in and waving an ISIS flag on the Temple Mount. Recently, one was seen on a wall there. Can Temple Mount beheadings be far behind?
SO WHAT DO THE MUSLIMS THINK THEY ARE GOING TO ACCOMPLISH UP THERE? Oh, by the way . . . King David (a Jew) purchased this piece of real estate 3,000 years ago and it has never been sold since.
Don't believe it?? Check out 2 Samuel 24.
Jan Willem van der Hoeven, Director of the International Christian Zionist Center said: “Israel needs to win a war if she wants to win a peace...What brought peace to Europe? Endless ceasefires and subsequent endless negotiations? No! You have to win a war to win a peace. This is the lesson of history and for that matter also of the Bible!... Just as the Nazis were soundly defeated by the Allied forces, so Israel's enemies need to be defeated before there is even a chance of living in peace with them!... And this is precisely what God repeatedly spells out in the Tanach throughout Israel's history: Do not make an alliance or a peace treaty with those who have shown again and again that they are your sworn enemies. ... May G-d help Israel therefore next time, if she has to fight another war, not just to win another battle or another ceasefire, but may Israel truly win a real peace!”
God says: “When the Lord your God brings you into the land you are entering to possess and drive out before you many nations—the Hittites, Girgashites, Amorites, Canaanites, Perizzites, Hivites and Jebusites, [and Hamas] seven nations larger and stronger than you— and when the Lord your God has delivered them over to you and you have defeated them, then you must destroy them totally. Make no treaty with them, and show them no mercy. … You must destroy all the peoples the Lord your God gives over to you. Do not look on them with pity and do not serve their gods, for that will be a snare to you.” (Deuteronomy 7:1-2, 16)
Prime Minister Netanyahu’s popularity has plummetted by over forty points because he has refused to totally defeat Hamas and instead has accepted another cease fire. Which means Hamas lives to fight another day. As long as Israel is willing to accept a cease fire rather than a decisive victory over its enemies there will be no peace for Israel – and most Israelis know that. Just as God’s covenant promises regarding the land are valid for today, so is His direction regarding how Israel is to respond to its enemies. Would to God Israel’s leaders have the courage and spiritual backbone to deal with Israel’s enemies as God has directed. Until then there is no hope for peace in Israel.
