Without a God’s-eye view of Israel, perceptions can be easily skewed. People of faith must be serious about getting the historical facts right and communicating biblical truth.
Who owns Machpelah? What is the historical precedent for UNESCO’s latest proposed designation? Can you connect the dots to the ancient cultural ties?
Prophetic passages in both Testaments of the Bible affirm the centrality of Jerusalem in Israel’s future. Those with an obsession to destroy Israel and rewrite history disavow what every rational person recognizes. Jerusalem is the capital of Israel and the heart of the Jewish world.
Set an alarm to pause in a moment of silent solidarity with our Jewish friends, neighbors and co-workers. Then, determine to use Yom HaShoah to counter those who attempt to diminish and co-opt the memory of the Holocaust.
“Blessed be the Lord, who has not given us as prey to their teeth. Our soul has escaped as a bird from the snare of the fowlers; the snare is broken, and we have escaped. Our help is in the name of the Lord, who made heaven and earth.” PSALM 124:6-7

Failure to speak and act on behalf of God’s Chosen People is nothing less than the reticence of complicity.
