Concerning the nature and source of the attacks Israel is currently enduring – the reality is – Israel is not only fighting against Hamas. The real terrorist behind the Jihadist of Oz curtain is Iran. It’s no secret that the mullahs of Tehran provide the weapons – equipment – training – and funding for these attacks on the Jewish people. In fact – it may be – that what has happened so far – is just a foretaste of what hasn’t happened yet. So there’s no sense in sugar-coating or dancing around the fact that the tens of thousands of rockets and missiles pointed at Israel – are provided by Iran. The Iranian government doesn’t want Palestinians living in their country – but they have no problem using Palestinians to do their dirty work. I’m not a self-appointed whistle blower claiming to have found the elusive smoking gun – or the son of a self-appointed whistle blower claiming to have found the elusive smoking gun – but let’s get real -it ain’t that hard to connect the Sharia dots. This is not about Muslim bashing – it’s about worldviews clashing.
Plus – there’s another threat as well. Al Qaeda and ISIS both have fighters in Gaza right now. Their goal is to establish an Islamic caliphate. Truly – this is a classic case of the old proverb, “The enemy of my enemy is my friend.” Which is why sincere but misinformed comments like, “There’s plenty of blame to go around on both sides” – activates my sense of Jewish solidarity and Hebraic survival instincts. So here’s my prayer:
“Lord – when it comes to the Mid-East Conflict – the majority of your church doesn’t seem to get it – or want to get it. So remove them from the earth (Rapture). Let Daniel’s 70th week run its course. And then – as you have promised – shout from the top of the Mount of Olives – Enough Already!” Maranatha.
