“Global March to Jerusalem” a global distraction

2011 rally protest in support of the establishment of a Palestinian state and a divided Jerusalem.

This Friday, “activists” in Syria, Lebanon, Egypt, and Jordan plan on breaching Israel’s borders as part of an event dubbed the Global March to Jerusalem (GMJ). Organizers claim the GMJ is necessary to raise world awareness of “the Apartheid, ethnic cleansing and Judaisation policies affecting the people, land and sanctity of Jerusalem.”

The outcome of the march will likely end up only deflecting international public attention away from serious global issues, such as Iran’s pursuit of nuclear weapons and Syrian’s daily massacre of its own population – nearly 10,000 killed in recent months – rather than demonstrating Israeli “apartheid,” Palestinian statehood, or anything else.

Is it not absurd that while the Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad butchers thousands of his own people in the streets, the organizers of GMJ have chosen to protest against Israel, the only democracy in the Middle East?

The GMJ presents Israel with a uniquely difficult situation. Jonathan Schanzer of the U.S.-based Foundation for Defense of Democracies summed it up in a recent piece in the Weekly Standard: “Should the organizers have their way, this will be a messy affair. If Israel fires upon the marchers, it will be a public relations victory. The organizers already know this is likely.”

It should come as no surprise that GMJ organizers seem to be hoping for a violent confrontation with Israel. Senior Hamas figures sit on their central committee, and Iranian parliamentary member Hussein Sheikholeslam is the organization’s secretary.

    Sure Israel needs to defend itself, but I believe it’s the beginning of Armeggedon. When the nations will rise against Israel then the end will come.

    Me and my family would go today to Stand for Israel if we had the money to. I pray to God the Father that Israel is protected against it’s enemies and that more people join to Stand with Israel.

    This is so totally unbelievable and incomprehensible since Syria is killing it’s on citizens by the thousands! He that is without sin, let him cast the first stone! May The Great I Am help us all. The world is upside down and Satan is truly busy! May HE protect Israel as HE has promised in his Word. I pray continuously for God to Bless Israel and protect her from her enemies and I trust that he will.

    To love our neighbour as ourselves, is the second great commandment.Do you think he meant just them living next door to your house? Exodus 20:13 Thou shalt not kill

    There are many people in the world now with their eyes and hearts closed. They love lies more than the truth. It truly is a sad thing.
    May God continue to bless and protect Israel!

    As a Christian that has studied a bit deeper I realize that God’s prophetic clock began to run again when Israel was reborn in 1948. The tic or toc Friday may be louder than we realize today.

    Nothing is easy but with our Protector’s wisdom shared with Israel leaders they will know how to progress! I too would be honored to stand with Israel as these lost people attempt to show the World what we know is not true. My prayers are with Israel and the leaders of this march that they will realize their confusion.

    I respect your publication. But am aghast at the way you mislead about Israel’s behavior. Israel’s leaders deserve attention that will bring worldwide approbation for its aggression.

      Since when is protecting yourself aggression? YahVeh Elohim will bless those who bless Israel and curse those who curse her.

      Isn’t it amazing how a tiny little nation of Israel is always the big bully? Israel has every right to defend itself against Satan’s forces. Ephesians 6:2
      says it all.

      george, the israelis have had to deal with muslims killing her people for centuries, but most after israel became a nation. too many muslims want to push israel into the sea. they lob hundreds of missiles into israel every day. we don’t hear about how many israelis get killed by these missiles. but they will jump at the chance to blame israelis for their protecting them selves. what did we do, in iraqm iran, afghanistan because of 9/11? i suppose you think that when muslims lob hundreds of missiles into israel, killing and maiming israeli ,men, women and children, every day that the israelis should sit on their hands? you need to study the history of israel since 1948. palestinians have made their bed. let them sleep in it.

    It shouldn’t be difficult to round them up peacefully and put them in jail. Then let their families pay the fines for breaking the law to get them out.

    You don’t get it, guys-IF our enemies, aka Al Quida (sp?) or any other were to come into the USA, march on Washington, what in the world would WE do! I would hope DEFEND ourselves, regardless of what else happened. Hope Israel does the same-but perhaps could have their own “wall” of defenders to deflect these people. I’d volunteer if I could get to Israel. What-say all!?

      Alice, You’re 100% correct. That’s what I have been telling my friends in the US. What would AMERICA do IF it were us? Actually, there wouldn’t even be THE question, for we would do the same, period!

    Initially, what’s new? Israels’ enemies always try to make them look like the bad guys. The good news is, Israel would have disappeared from the face of the earth unless God was with them, as He had promised thousands of years ago.
