The Snubbing of Jewish Israel Continues
Prophecy - Signs
Friday, January 16, 2015
Alf Cengia

It's early 2015 and it is business as usual.

While Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu attended the massive rally against terrorism in Paris last Sunday, the White House abstained. U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder was in Paris for anti-terrorism talks, but not sited at the rally. Presumably it didn't fit the Ferguson standard of importance.

John Kerry cited local commitments as an excuse. When asked about criticism of the Obama administration's lack of representation, he said Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland was there. According to Fox News, Nuland had, in fact, participated in a Washington march.

Was anyone really surprised?

The astute Palestinian Authority’s Mahmoud Abbas was there. Fatah and Hamas even denounced the attack on Charlie Hebdo. But, as one writer has already noted, they were very careful not to denounce the attack on the Parisian Jewish supermarket. This is because:

"...Hamas believes that attacks against Jews are legitimate. Condemning the killing of Jews would have meant that Hamas would also have to denounce its own terror attacks against Jews in Israel." (Emphasis mine)

Benjamin Netanyahu is used to being marginalized by the White House yet his attendance was also a problem for Parisian officials. In a Facebook post, Caroline Glick cited a "hostile report" in which the French claimed that Netanyahu's marching "with other leaders would detract from the message of unity in the fight against terrorism."

How so, exactly?

Among other things, officials wouldn't allow him to board the same bus as the other world leaders. When he insisted, they made him wait outside where he was susceptible to any possible assassination attempt. Then they wanted to position him in a second row seat where he wouldn't be seen. Notwithstanding that, Netanyahu still managed to find his way to the front, along with Abbas.

This sort of disgusting behavior reminds me of my old school days. Nobody wanted to be seen hanging around with the unpopular kids, especially if the bullies disapproved. Nothing has changed.

While the Paris March organizers were miffed at Netanyahu's presence, Parisian Jews were elated. In one video you can hear them shouting at different stages, "Bibi! We Love You! Help Us!"

I love Bibi - however, what the Jews need is the Lord. It's just a shame that the Organization entrusted with the Gospel in this dispensation often does its very best to marginalize them.

During his visit to Israel, the normally diplomatically-inclined Pope Francis interrupted Netanyahu to correct him. Netanyahu had mentioned that Jesus spoke Hebrew, so the pope interjected, "Aramaic." Netanyahu correctly responded that Jesus spoke Aramaic, but that He knew Hebrew.

Don't be misled into thinking it a minor point. Aramaic is a Semitic language, related to Hebrew, Arabic and other languages. As such, it is considered to be inclusive - Hebrew is not. The pope was following the politically correct narrative that one should not emphasize Jesus as a Jew - rather, we should think of Him as a Palestinian.

That the pope was compelled to publicly correct Netanyahu highlights the ongoing and historical tensions between the church and Israel. In what some might regard as an over-reaction (I don't necessarily think so), Caroline Glick warned:

"Israelis and Jews around the world need to be aware of what is happening. Francis is leading the Catholic Church in a distressingly anti-Jewish direction."

Jewishness is being demonized, and by implication so is support for Israel. This was captured very well in a recent must-read article (The Sanballat Syndrome) which looked back into the Old Testament example of Nehemiah's struggle with Sanballat in his efforts to restore the Jewish people. It compared that struggle with what is occurring today:

"It is becoming increasingly widespread (even for some praying believers who believe in a biblical destiny for the Jewish people) to get worn down by the enemy regarding God’s heart for His people and His land."

It also rightly added:

"Those who oppose the return of the Jewish people to their land, who call that process an injustice, and who attempt to mobilize political opposition against it – these people are walking in the way of Sanballat."

It's an indictment on Christianity that many would prefer that the Jew was absorbed into an amorphous Palestinian culture and identity. One of many examples of this bias is the outcry of some Christians against the growing yearning for a Jewish Temple. In contrast, these same people express no qualms about a Mosque on the Temple Mount which denies Christ's divinity.

Much of the popular analysis of the Charlie Hebdo incident has glossed over the targeting of Jews in Europe. Jews have been leaving France in droves long before the supermarket attack. This is the proverbial elephant in the room that many commentators avoid.

Jews are increasingly not wanted in Europe, yet are criticized for migrating to Israel. When BBC Director Daniel Cohen said he'd never felt uncomfortable living in England as he had in the past year, one media article took him to task. Cohen was accused of having 'Zionist" biases, while his concerns were downplayed.

When one digs further into the nature of the website that produced the article, one understands what drives these prejudiced remarks. But Cohen isn't exactly alone. A recent study arrived at the conclusion that the majority of British Jews feel they have no future in the U.K.

It's hypocritical of world leaders go out of their way to defend the honor of Islam and the Qur'an (as the pope did recently) and yet shun Israel. And, predictably, some nutcases have already found ways to implicate Israel in the Paris attack. These should be treated with the disdain they deserve.

Speaking of hypocrisy, some have asked - if there had only been an attack on the Kosher Supermarket, would millions have marched? And as a friend rightly pointed out - where were the marches for the slaughtered Nigerians? These are reasonable questions.

As for Israel, we know how it will eventually end up:

Therefore your gates [Israel] shall be open continually; They shall not be shut day or night, That men may bring to you the wealth of the Gentiles, And their kings in procession. For the nation and kingdom which will not serve you shall perish, And those nations shall be utterly ruined. Isaiah 60:11-12

Note well that I didn't say it - God did!
