“In postmodern wars, we are told, there is no victory, no defeat, no aggressors, no defenders, just a tragedy of conflicting agendas. But in such a mindless and amoral landscape, Israel in fact is on its way to emerging in a far better position after the Gaza war than before.”
Further to my previous post ‘Hamas Tunnels Used To Target Israel’s Kindergartens,’ I would like to direct your attention to this essay by Victor Davis Hanson.
Also, in light of the continuing wars and struggles in the Middle East, in particular as related to Israel, I would encourage you to investigate for yourself the Biblical prophesies concerning Israel and the “End Times.” In these prophesies, as well as in the daily media reporting we see an increasingly isolated Israel forced more and more to go it alone in its own defense. We also see a resurgence of anti-Semitism and hatred of the Jew, in particular in Europe where, as you may recall, a man named Adolf Hitler set off on a program for the total and complete annihilation of the Jews.
Iran and other nations surrounding Israel, and especially the so-called Palestinians have been actively seeking the completion of Hitler’s genocide since the re-establishment of Israel in 1948, and the United States appears also to be abandoning Israel as we see our president Barack Obama in May of 2011 pressuring a return to the 1967 boundaries of Israel … boundaries referred to in Israel as the Auschwitz borders, and our Secretary of State John Kerry actively courting the enemies of Israel in achieving a so-called “Peace Process.”
Are we living in the “End Times” as prophesied in the Bible? I can’t tell you that we are or are not … all I can do is to call your attention to such a possibility, and call your attention to the personal implications if indeed we are living in such times.
Do your own study and research. In today’s Internet age, it is easier than ever to investigate and inform yourself, an I strongly encourage you to do so.
Do an Internet search on, for example “Psalm 83 wars” and Ezekiel 28, and on Matthew 24. Do a search on “End Times” and see what you can find with this searches.
