Does Israel Have a Right to Protect Herself?
At any given point, there are over 2,000 missiles poised and ready to go off with Israel as the target. Does Israel have a right to protect herself?
On any given day, the rhetoric out of the Arab world is against Israel, wishing to eliminate all Jews and Israel as a nation from the Middle East. Does Israel have a right to protect herself?
Israel is a nation that many to most wish did not exist. This seems clear enough from what is seen in the news throughout the world. In spite of the vitriol, the death threats, and the movement toward another holocaust, the people of the world often see Israel as the reason for the upset in the Middle East.
Yes, I have said this before, but it is just as true today as it was when I said it in the past. People wrongly believe that if Israel would simply give the “Palestinians” what they want, that all would be well.
Is that the way people deal with bullies? Should Israel essentially roll over and play dead because nations and groups want her literally dead? That would be foolhardy.
The type of vitriolic rhetoric that abounds against Israel is becoming the norm. I rarely if ever hear diplomats or politicians come out against it. Their silence is telling. It is reminiscent of the silence during the Nazi holocaust of over six million Jews.
Doesn’t the world understand that at least part of the world – the Arab world – is ramping up their hate speech against Israel and that can only mean one thing. It can only mean that they truly want Israel eradicated off the map.
Does Israel have a right to protect herself? Without equivocation. PM Netanyahu does not need anyone’s permission to do what is in the best interests for Israel. He does not need to ask permission of the United States or any leader of any other country. If Israel is in danger, she should be able to use all of her powers to cut off that threat.
Right now, Iran is seen as the most realistic threat because Iran is not far off from having nuclear weaponry and once that happens, will anyone, much less Israel be safe? The short answer is NO.
Yet in our world today, politics being what it is, there seems to be a good amount of pretense toward Israel.
Does Israel have a right to protect herself?
I read recently that Israel is the most educated nation, followed by Canada. That’s interesting to me because Canada is the only nation I can think of that fully supports Israel. The United States has consistently dialed back its support of Israel over the past few administrations and this current administration seems to be doing all it can to ensure that America does not really support Israel at all. It almost appears as though the relationship with Israel is based on a sort of blackmail: “You do what we say or else we will pull all of our support!” This is not a basis for agreement. This is a basis for hatred between two parties.
Does Israel have a right to protect herself? Israel should do whatever is necessary to survive and if that means taking out Iran’s nuclear facilities, then so be it. It is very clear to all but the blind and deaf that Iran wants Israel out of the Middle East. There are Ayatollahs within Iran and elsewhere who go further than that, stating clearly that all Jews should be erased from the face of this earth (my paraphrase).
How can we look at that and not believe another holocaust is on the way? The only thing that will stop it is God’s intervention because too many countries are once again, looking the other way.
What will be the outcome of all of this heated rhetoric? Possibly Ezekiel 38-39. This section of Scripture speaks of the Northern Invasion and the result of it is that God intervenes and routs these nations that attempt to invade and overtake Israel.
Why do we know that this particular section of the Bible is yet future? Simply because it has not happened in history yet. The events of Ezekiel 38-39 are real, not figurative. They appear to be at a time when Israel believes she lives in relative peace.
In spite of the fact that over 2,000 missiles are directed her way, Israel is a strong nation. Any other nation that was as small as Israel is and surrounded by as many enemies would have folded a long time ago. Not Israel. There she sits, in control of her destiny. Israel will not fold and she will not succumb to those who want her out of the Land.
Does Israel have a right to protect herself? Without a doubt and that is what Israel will do when the time comes. However, when Ezekiel 38-39 plays itself out, the text tells us that God Himself will intervene and fight for Israel. Israel will not lift a finger to help. She will be protected by God who will route and destroy Israel’s enemies.
There is even a sense that nuclear war (or something like it) will be used to destroy the area north of Israel where Gog came from and Gog is the leader of this Northern Invasion.
Israel has every right to protect herself and to the chagrin of the world, she will do it mightily. What she will not be able to do, God will do.
