Melanie Phillips said: “So while Muslims deny the Holocaust, they claim that Israel is carrying out a holocaust in Gaza. Antisemitism is central to Jewish experience in Europe; Muslims claim that ‘Islamophobia’ is rife throughout Europe. Israel gives all Jews the ‘right of return’ to Israel on account of the unique reality of global Jewish persecution; the Muslims claim a ‘right of return’ not to their own putative state of Palestine, but to Israel. They even claim that the Palestinians are the world’s ‘new Jews’. … So the Muslim world cannot be held responsible for blowing people up as they are the third world victims of the West; so any atrocities they commit must be the fault of their victims; and so the US had it coming to it on 9/11. And in similar fashion, Israel can never be the victim of the Arab world; the murder of Israelis by the Arab world must be Israel’s own fault.”
God says: “Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness of light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter…. Who acquit the guilty for a bribe, and deprive the innocent of his right.”… “He who justifies the wicked and he who condemns the righteous are both alike an abomination to Yahweh.”… “Whoever says to the wicked, ‘You are right’ will be cursed by peoples, abhorred by nations, but those who rebuke the wicked will have delight, and good blessing will come upon them.” .
The Jerusalem Connection says: It should be readily apparent that both Jews and Christians are in the cross-hairs of Islamic Jihadists. We are the target of choice and opportunity for those who see us as infidels and must be destroyed. Liberals, on the other hand have finally found in Islam a religion they can embrace. However, much to their surprise, their efforts at appeasement will only allow them to be the last to be devoured by the Islamic crocodile. In the meantime, what are Christians and Jews to do? Our strongest weapon is the truth. Our greatest defense is a clear declaration of the promises of God on behalf of His people. He is the Defender of the defenseless. We must stand as the three Hebrew children did, who when facing their death, declared, “Our God whom we serve is able to deliver us from the burning fiery furnace, and he will deliver us out of your hand O king. But if not, be it known to you O king we will not serve or worship the gods you have set up.” . Not only must we stand together as Christians and Jews, but we should expect the same results against our persecutors.
