Nine common myths about Israel

1. The international community opposes Israel because it is an “ethnic nation-state.”

A cover for Jew-hatred, this argument is applied only against Israel and the Jewish people.

2. Judea and Samaria (the “West Bank” of the Jordan River) belong to the “Palestinians.”

The Useful Myth that Obama Now Likes Israel

Reality, especially in 2012, is very hard to face. So many hopes dashed; so many bad things happening. So people can be forgiven for taking refuge in wishful thinking. Sometimes, not telling the truth has its value in public affairs, especially when you are looking at a president with four more years in office and no elections ahead of him.

What's the big deal about Israel?

Greg Laurie looks at prophecy predicting Jewish state will be friendless

Why is Jerusalem such a big deal in world news? Why aren’t we talking about Los Angeles, Paris, Rome, or some other major capital in another part of the world? Why this little city?

I will tell you why. Because God said that in the last days, Jerusalem would play a key role: “I will make Jerusalem like an intoxicating drink that makes the nearby nations stagger when they send their armies to besiege Jerusalem and Judah. On that day I will make Jerusalem an immovable rock. All the nations will gather against it to try to move it, but they will only hurt themselves” (Zechariah 12:2–3 NLT).

Just Ordinary Men

Your name is Johann and it is the early spring of ’42. The days are getting both longer and warmer in northern Germany and exciting news has arrived in today’s mail. Finally, at the age of 45, you are not too old to serve your Führer in the Nazi war effort. Your younger brother was called up a few years ago and he was a part of the victorious army as it marched into Paris. Now you get to serve the Third Reich in the Order Police, in particular as one of the 500 men, almost all from Hamburg, in Reserve Police Battalion 101.

Annihilation or Redemption?

Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu was spot on in denouncing as “a disgrace and a stain on humanity” the appearance of so many world leaders in Tehran for the recent summit of the Non-Aligned Movement. Given Iran’s relentless demonization of Israel and its renegade quest for nuclear weapons, the attendance of dozens of kings, presidents and diplomats – not to mention UN Secretary-General Ban-Ki Moon – indeed showed the post-Holocaust pledge of “Never Again” is pretty hollow.

Jesus Was Not Born in Palestine

The Palestinian Authority has for years been trying to paint Jesus as one of their national heroes and further deny both his Jewishness and affiliation with Israel.

Yasser Arafat used to openly declare Jesus to be a Palestinian as he kicked off Christmas from Bethlehem every year. His successors, Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas and prime minister Salam Fayyad, have continued the trend.

Israel and the Jewish Left

Jewish support for the enemies of Israel represents the triumph of leftism over Jewishness.

Among its many critics, there is a startling number of Jews who calumniate Israel and, in some cases, champion those threatening its existence. Noam Chomsky heads this list, but he is hardly alone. Norman Finkelstein, Ilan Pappe, Richard Falk, Tony Judt, Howard Zinn, Eric Hobsbawm and many other Jews have joined in this project. Gabriel Schoenfeld’s explanation of this in The Return of Anti-Semitism is straightforward: amid a rising tide of anti-Semitism, Jewish enemies of Israel are out to save their own skins, aiming “to deflect the poisonous arrows coming at their fellow Jews.”

Looming Destruction: Will Jews Ever Learn?

On the eve of the Second World War, Chaim Weizmann, who was to become Israel's first president, wrote the following about the persecutions taking place in Nazi Germany:

It would require the eloquence of a Jeremiah to picture the horrors, the human anguish, of this new Destruction and of a new book of Lamentations to depict the present plight of Israel among the nations.

BEN-GURION AIRPORT, Israel (AP) — Despite regional tensions, about 350 Jews from North America landed in Israel on Tuesday, planning to make the Jewish state their new home.

Their arrival coincides with an escalating internal debate over whether Israel should attack Iran's nuclear facilities. Israel and the West believe Iran may be aiming to produce nuclear weapons. Iran denies that.

Recently I was asked by my friend Dr. David Reagan, “What do you consider to be the single most important sign of the times, and why?” My response was that the super-sign of the end times is the existence of the nation of Israel, and this was pointed out by Christ in Matthew 24:32-34 in the parable of the fig tree. Through the parable He taught that some future generation would be able to claim that the long list of prophecies predicted in Matthew 24 had found fulfillment. By instructing His disciples to “learn” the parable, which identified the reestablished nation of Israel through a familiar Old Testament typology of the fig tree, Christ elevated this prophecy to the forefront of all the last day’s prophecies He discussed.
