Jewish leader Isi Leibler, writing last week in the Jerusalem Post, had this to
say about a global reality we should all be paying attention to:
“The Inter-Parliamentary Coalition for Combating Anti-Semitism is meeting today
in the wake of the Gaza
campaign, which ignited an exponential eruption of global anti-Semitic frenzy
unprecedented since the Nazi era. The intensity of the anti-Jewish rage,
frequently accompanied by acts of violence, has engendered fear and anxiety
among Diaspora Jews and obliged many to seriously ponder their long-term future.
“On every continent and in virtually every city, enraged demonstrators have
railed against Israel and indulged in anti-Semitic
calls to "boycott Jews," "gas" them and "dismantle the Nazi Israeli state." The
anti-Jewish offensives, usually initiated by Arabs, have been supported by wide
spectrums of indigenous citizens.”
is not a fear-monger, nor is he crying wolf. Some lay this charge, but they did
as well in the lead-up to the Holocaust. Unfortunately, Leibler is right to
sound the alarm.
Repeatedly in Scripture, we are told that dark spiritual forces will intensify
pressure on Israel and the Jews in the last
days. Here again is a dramatic fulfillment of prophecy that many can’t see!
Anti-semites are the fulfillment of prophecy and they can’t see it. Amazing.
Also a few days ago, it was announced that the U.S. would have
representation at the upcoming Durban Conference. This anti-Western, anti-Israel
gathering is a clearing-house for haters and has been shunned by the Americans.
What is this if not an acceleration of fulfilled prophecies that point to a
Barack Obama is conducting his foreign policy exactly as he said he would, which
means appeasement. An alarming byproduct of this — watch for it — is an
increasing tendency to throw
to the wolves.
Some assume Obama and his foreign policy team are naïve. Don’t assume that they
are. One reporter, soon after the election (note: not before!), called Obama
“deeply manipulative.” He’s spent time with the candidate on his plane. A few
days ago, Sean Hannity made an interesting comment as he discussed the so-called
“Fairness Doctrine” (designed to muzzle conservative radio); he said that people
fail to understand that the policymakers in
don’t care about the average person.
I think he’s correct. Which means that for all their pledges to ensure
insiders and powerbrokers will sell the Jewish state down the river. As Israel
sorts-out its recent election, one can see the manipulation behind the scenes.
As Benjamin Netanyahu jostles for position in trying to become Israel’s next
prime minister, it is hard not to notice the hatred for him…not only from the
Arabs, but from Western diplomats and journalists! Obama will no doubt lean on
Netanyahu (who, unlike Obama or Bill Clinton, with whom he dealt a decade ago,
is not a coward).
It was noted by syndicated columnist Charles Krauthammer that Obama’s overtures
have resulted in the Iranians puffing out their collective chest and demanding
certain things of the U.S.
in exchange for “normalized relations.” One of those demands is to abandon the
“Zionist entity.” We all know who that is. Does this not speak to Jeremiah 30?
Krauthammer also noted that since Iran announced
that it has sent a satellite into space, the obvious implication is that they
can also target anywhere with ballistic missiles. One can see here the
beginnings of classic, high-stakes blackmail that would ultimately leave Israel without
Israel’s Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni, who narrowly missed a bid to become
prime minister, has said that not only would she not sit in a Netanyahu
government (unless he agreed to a rotating premiership), but that she advocated
giving away at least half of the Land of Israel to a Palestinian state.
All these things are indeed foreboding. Ominous.
And yet when one talks to Israelis in their own country, one gets the sense
that more Bible prophecy is being fulfilled, because these people are not going
away. They are not going to lay down and die. We have the odd situation of a
pagan world that does not believe in the Bible or the God of the Bible coming
into direct conflict with Israel as God
prepares to supernaturally intervene, as He did in the “days of old.”
Praise the Lord, He is on His throne and in charge. Let the heathen rage and the
anti-semites spew their hate.
We are at the boiling point, and the Redeemer of Israel is preparing to take
