I wonder how Americans can eat at all, considering the fact that Israel has been blockading Gaza, Palestine for over three years now. The children of Gaza cannot get the food, water and medicines that they so desperately need . . . yet Americans are virtually oblivious to this fact. Worse yet, the American people are, through their tax dollars, supporting this blockade. Even worse, American Christians support Israel in everything that it does—including the murder of innocent children—erroneously believing that God is with Israel.
If Americans only knew . . .
Israel—with the support of the U. S.—has imposed this blockade upon Gaza, Palestine for the past three years now—which is not a tragedy but a crime. As American citizens, especially as Christian American citizens, my question is: Are we even aware of this fact? And if we are: Do we care about the fact that children are suffering as a result of this blockade?
The United Nations (and the world) says that the Israeli blockade of Gaza is a crime against humanity and I agree. Do you?
Israel and the U. S. continue their run-up to World War III and Americans continue to ignore the severity of the situation. Russia is furious with us for using NATO, which was designed as a purely defensive organization, as an offensive force—first in Kosovo and now in Afghanistan. The Russians are giving weapons to Iran as well as warning the U. S. not to attack Iran.
Russia, China, and Iran have been allies for many years and it is foolish for the U. S. to go to war with them over oil and Israel. Our politicians in Washington—who are unable to get even the most trivial governmental business done—are, however, doing a bang-up job at putting the lives and homes of the American people in jeopardy. These "leaders" actually believe that they can win a World War III against China, Russia, and Iran, et al.
We have no excuse for being unaware of these facts and events. And God is holding us—the American people—responsible. He will not buy the "But we didn't know" excuse . . .
"Rescue those who are being taken away to death; hold back those who are stumbling to the slaughter. If you say, 'Behold, we did not know this', does not he who weighs the heart perceive it? Does not he who keeps watch over your soul know it, and will he not requite man according to his work?" (Proverbs 24:11-12).
Did you get that? If we say that "we did not know . . ." God, who weighs the human heart, perceives that we did know and that we did nothing to rescue those who were being slaughtered.
And slaughter is the only appropriate word for what the Israelis are doing to the Palestinian peoples, especially in Gaza: first they wall them in and then they kill them. It's like shooting fish in a barrel—with U. S.-made U. S. taxpayer-funded rockets. Israel pulverizes people's homes, buries innocent little children in the rubble of their homes, and we support it? And American Christians think that God is with Israel? Have they lost their minds, or just their hearts?
The other day a friend of my suggested that I lighten up; that I stop posting videos having to do with Israel's slaughter of little Palestinian children. But how can I? And why should I? If Americans would simply turn off their televisions, which never show any videos or images of murdered Palestinian children, and would, instead, simply Google images of "dead Palestinian children" they would see this horrible truth for themselves then I wouldn't have to post them, right? But Americans don't seem to know, because I guess they're just too busy to be interested in anyone besides themselves (and their own health care); or perhaps they simply don't care at all; or, if they do care, they probably think there's nothing they can do about it anyway so why should they bother looking at such disturbing images; "out of sight out of mind", right?
But there is something we can do about it. There is a way for the U. S. to stop supporting Israel and its slaughter of innocents: march on Washington and demand an end to it; fill the streets of Washington until the slaughter ends.
I'm told that the American people will never do this; that we're too apathetic. Okay, fine. But, if that's going to be the case, then God will judge us for turning a blind eye to this slaughter of innocents. America is already under threat of God's judgment, due to the fact that we have legalized the slaughter of innocent in American for the past forty years (i.e., abortion on demand). Just how much blood do you think the body of a three month old pre-born child contains anyway, maybe a pint or two? Multiply that amount by 49,000,000—which is actually a little less than the number of pre-born babies that have been legally aborted in America, since (legally sketchy) the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision— and you get a lot of innocent blood that's been shed— on American soil.
Where do you think all of that innocent blood goes when the abortionists kill those little pre-born babies anyway? I'll tell you: into the sewers that run beneath your cities; that's where.
Where do you think all the innocent blood of those little Palestinian children, killed by the Israelis in Gaza goes? Not into the sewers, because they don't have such first-world luxuries as sewers: it flows onto the streets and into the ground.
Innocent blood, according to the Bible, cries out to God from the ground (see Genesis 4:10).
And Christians in American believe that God supports Israel and therefore we should support Israel as well? Are they kidding me? Have these Christians read their Bibles lately? Jesus, speaking to the hypocritical Jewish Pharisees, said:
"'You snakes! You brood of vipers! How will you escape being condemned to hell? Therefore I am sending you prophets and wise men and teachers. Some of them you will kill and crucify; others you will flog in your synagogues and pursue from town to town. And so upon you will come all the righteous blood that has been shed on earth, from the blood of righteous Abel to the blood of Zechariah son of Berekiah, whom you murdered between the temple and the altar. I tell you the truth, all this will come upon this generation. O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, you who kill the prophets and stone those sent to you, how often I have longed to gather your children together, as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, but you were not willing. Look, your house is left to you desolate. For I tell you, you will not see me again until you say, 'Blessed is he who comes in thename of the Lord.'" (Matthew 23:33-39)."
Did you catch that? God has left Israel's house desolate (Greek: aphietai; meaning: left alone, or abandoned by God).
Wake up America! Wake up American Christians! Let us march on Washington and demand that our "leaders" do the right thing: Stop supporting Israel!
Before God's judgment falls upon us; before our "leaders" in Washington get us all killed.
God will use our (and Israel's) enemies to punish us for our sins if we do not repent of them—by forcing Washington to do a foreign policy about-face. Because by allowing a sinful, unrepentant nation's enemies to defeat that nation in battle is how God judges and punishes nations— like Israel—who forget God and do evil:
in the days of her affliction and bitterness
all the precious things
that were hers from days of old.
When her people fell into the hand of the foe,
and there was none to help her,
the foe gloated over her,
mocking at her downfall.
Jerusalem sinned grievously,
therefore she became filthy;
all who honored her despise her,
for they have seen her nakedness;
yea, she herself groans,
and turns her face away.
Her uncleanness was in her skirts;
she took no thought of her doom;
therefore her fall is terrible,
she has no comforter.
"O Lord, behold my affliction,
for the enemy has triumphed!"
