And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed. Genesis 12:3
This verse has been the guiding principal of America. As a result God has blessed us as a nation. In other articles I have shown what happens when nations violate this precept of God’s Word. It is never a good thing.
There has been a recent development in Europe that greatly concerns me. Europe has just removed Hamas from their terrorist blacklist. In addition to this there was a vote in the European Parliament to recognize Palestine as a state. It passed 489 to 88.
The whole idea of Palestine is a myth. There has never been a Palestinian state or people. If I asked you to name one famous Palestinian the first name you would come up with would be Yasser Arafat. He was the leader of the PLO and he is the face of the Palestinian people. He was not a Palestinian, he was an Egyptian born in Egypt.
Great Britain started the use of this name in the 1920’s when they were given control of that region after WWI. Britain was given a mandate to divide the land and set up governments. They wanted to set up a home for Israel and a home for the Arabs that were there. This is when the idea of Palestine was invented. When the Arabs first heard
of this they said, “Who are the Palestinians? We are Syrians.”
This recognition of Palestine as a state ignores the fact that Palestine does not have a functioning government. What is really happening here is that Europe is attempting to throw Israel under the bus.
The reason the Palestinians don’t have a functioning government is that seven years ago Hamas came in by force and overthrew the government that was being established and therefore, there is no functioning government in Palestine.
The European Union has now removed Hamas from their terrorist list. This means that Hamas is no longer recognized as a terrorist organization by the European Union. This is in spite of the fact that the charter of Hamas says, “We are the Muslim Brotherhood, and we are here for the sole purpose of the destruction of the nation of Israel.”
Hamas has been involved in countless numbers of terrorist attacks against Israel. Just a few months ago they shot thousands of rockets into Israel targeting civilians. They shot them from hospitals, from schools, from UN complexes, and shielded themselves civilians and children just so that when Israel responds the media would make Israel look bad.
The European Union is bent on the removal of Israel and on favoring the terrorist organizations who wish to destroy her. This should concern all of us.
Here are some new articles that show what is happening:
European court took Hamas off of Europe’s terrorist list. This is in spite of the fact that Hamas is dedicated to the destruction of Israel and has increased it terrorist attacks within Israel.
Netanyahu slams European hypocrisy as court orders removal of Hamas from terror blacklist.
Overthe centuries there have been many times when Christians thought that the events of their time indicated the soon return of Christ. It should be obvious to all that so far they have been wrong. It is, therefore, with great caution that I say that these events, and many others, seem to indicate the soon return of our Lord. There is little time to reach the lost in general, and Muslims in particular. Let us be busy with the Lord’s business.
Let me close with the following verse:
when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh. Luke 21:28
