The World’s Furies
I just finished reading a horrifying book, Hitler’s Furies, that details the role of German women in the Third Reich. It is a new field of study, and the author really digs down into the mindset of the wives and girlfriends of SS men who made it their life’s work to murder Jews.
Erna Petri was one such person. One day she found six shivering Jewish boys on the side of the road; this was after the rounding-up of Jews was well underway. Petri took them into the forest and shot them in the head.
I mention this story—this ghastly story—after reading this week that Israeli ambassador to the UN Danny Danon boldly declared to that corrupt body that the Bible is the Jews’ title deed to the Land of Israel.
How are these two stories connected?
They are connected precisely because the international community has a satanic hatred of the Jews, and always will.
“In an unusual speech, Israel’s Ambassador to the United Nations Danny Danon defended the Jewish right to the Land of Israel, including the West Bank settlements when he addressed the United Nations Security Council on Monday afternoon.”
In an astonishing historical lesson, Danon minced no words:
“God gave the land to the people of Israel in Genesis, when he made a covenant with Abraham, said Danon.
“He held up a copy of the Bible for all the ambassadors present to see and said, ‘This is our deed to our land.’
“Danon set out his arguments at a time when the international community is bracing itself for Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to make good on his preelection promise to annex the settlements. The international community holds that Israel’s presence in the West Bank is illegal.
“Danon argued that Israel has historical and biblical rights to the Holy Land, including Judea and Samaria.
“’From the book of Genesis; to the Jewish exodus from Egypt; to receiving the Torah on Mount Sinai; to the gates of Canaan; and to the realization of God’s covenant in the Holy Land of Israel; the Bible paints a consistent picture. The entire history of our people, and our connection to Eretz Yisrael, begins right here,’ Danon said.”
Palestinian Ambassador Riyad Mansour of course took exception to all this.
“Mansour warned Israel against taking any steps to annex the settlements in the West Bank, which he said.
“’The international community must stop normalizing this occupation,’ Mansour said.
“’Occupation, annexation and human rights violations can never be accepted as just and normal and can never be accepted as the new normal, no matter the spin or the pretext,’ he said.
“Israel a ‘racist apartheid state under Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’ and warned that the US has emboldened Israel’s flouting of the law.
“’Israel’s expansionist appetite is growing. Just listen to their recent cyclical statements on their intent to annex the illegal settlements’ and their ‘blatant dismissal of Palestinian rights,’ Mansour said.”
What expansionist appetite? Israel holding its nose just above the sea of Arabs in order to breathe is unacceptable to the Palestinians, themselves a political invention of history.
I firmly believe that the same spirit that encouraged Erna Petri to shoot six Jewish children in a Polish forest is the same spirit that animates Mansour’s hate-filled diatribe against the tiny state of Israel.
I greatly admire Danon for confronting the thoroughly corrupt UN with the truth. In this week of Holocaust remembrance, it is wonderful to know that the skeletal Jews imprisoned behind barbed wire in the 1940s can now defend themselves in their historic homeland.
We live in momentous times, and things are coming to a head. The killers and haters of Jews have a rendezvous with Destiny. I thank the Lord that He watches over His people.
And I pray He continues to have mercy on those of us who love them, too.
