Israel: A nation of survivors

A good op-ed from Robert Fulford in the National Post:

A nation of survivors and the descendants of survivors, Israel has now survived for 64 difficult years. By this point it would seem to have staked a reasonable claim on the affections of all nations that share its beliefs in honest elections, independent judges and freedom of speech and commerce. But in the community of democratic states Israel is more often regarded with suspicion. Unwarranted hostility is one of the forces it routinely faces while pursuing survival.

At the end of the article, Fulford quotes Israeli author Hillel Harkin: “Zionism is the belief that the Jews should have a state. To defame Israel is to defame the Jews. To wish that it never existed is to wish to destroy the Jews.” Would that the entire world understood this fundamental truth.

    The fundamental truth is that to hate the Jews is to hate God; that, of course, is the ultimate source of anti-Israel bias wherever you find it.

    I ponder the question over and over in my mind often.Why is the world ever-changing into secularism with greed and war-mongering attitudes forever arising? To me,Israel has always been to the forefront when it comes to good-will and peace to Humanity.With it’s strong beliefs in democracy,the values it has ingrained in it’s system will forever prevail in it’s quest for perpetual freedom. GOD Bless.

    According to the Christian Bible Israel will never be destroyed again, Jesus Christ will descend from heaven with a shout and the trump of Jehovah GOD, and Jesus will destroy all Israel’s enemies!

Rabbi's Commentary
A Fragile Peace

As we continue to pray for a lasting peace, one of our most critical tasks is to help Israel recover – to rebuild, to restore shattered lives, to comfort those who have lost loved ones or livelihoods. And none of this is possible without you who continue to stand by the Jewish people.
